الجواب حامداً و مصلياً

In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


The Sunnah Muakkadah Salāh are, two Sunnats of Fajr, four Sunnats and two Sunnats of Zuhr, two Sunnats of Maghrib and two Sunnats of Ishā. Sayyidh Umm Habibah radhiyallahu anha relates that the Messenger of Allāh sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, “Whosoever performs twelve Rak’ats during the day and night then a palace will be built for him in Jannah; four before Zuhr (fardh) and two after it, two after Maghrib (fardh), two after Ishā (fardh) and two before Fajr.”[1]
