Sunnats after zuhr

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I started praying the 12 Sunnahs prayer. However, I want to pray four rakats after Dhur and not two because four is recommended. Are the four rakats after Dhur with two tasleems like the four rakats before Dhur?


A: There are four rakaats after zuhr Salaah. Two rakaats sunnat-e-muaqqadah and two rakaats nafil. These are two separate Salaahs.You should not perform these four rakaats together with one salaam as the four rakaats before zuhr are performed with one salaam.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
