Performing two rakaats Sunnah instead of four

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: While performing four rakaats Sunnah I forgot and completed two rakaats with salam. My question is shall I repeat all four rakaats or just offer two rakaats.


A: If it was not Sunnat-e-muakkadah then you do not have to repeat all the four rakaats.

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