Answer

(Fatwa: 1009/996/N=1433)

On the day of Jumuah at the time of Jumuah only two rakah are fardh while there are four rakah before fardh and four rakah after fardh as per Imam Abu Hanifa (رحمة الله عليه) and six rakah as per Imam Abu Yusuf (رحمة الله عليه) first four rakah then two rakah, these are sunnah muakkadah. The status of sunnah muakkadah is near wajib and a person who permanently misses it is sinful. The sunnah muakkadah brings perfection in fardh.
