Q: I am at home and the zuhr prayer jamat will soon start in the masjid and I have only a few minutes to perform my 4 sunnats. If I perform the sunnats before I leave for the masjid, I will miss the beginning of the jamat (I will catch the last 1-2 rakats). Should I do this, or should I instead leave early to the masjid and pray the 4 sunnats after the fard, thus catching the jamaat from its beginning?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
