How to Perform the 4 Rak`ahs Sunnah Before Zhuhr

24 October, 2023
Q Each prayer has a sunnah prayer attached to it. We know that Zhuhr prayer has 4 raka`hs sunnah. How should these 4 rak`ahs be performed? Should they be performed all together like Zhuhr prayer? or should they be performed in twos?


In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

In this fatwa:

  • If you want to pray the 4 rak`ahs before Zhuhr, the best way is to pray 2 rak`ahs then say tasleem then pray two other rak`ahs.
  • Also you can pray the 4 rak`ahs together either with tashahhud in the middle or not.

Answering your question, Shaykh Waleed Basyouni, gives the detailed answer in this video:

Almighty Allah knows best.
