Performing two rakaats sunnat before zuhr due to the fardh salaah commencing

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I was offering the four rakat sunnat before zuhr in the mosque. I was offering the second rakat when the iqaamat started, so I completed my salah like a two rakah prayer to join the jamaat. Will I have to offer the sunnat again after zuhr or is it permissible to skip it? And also should I do sajdah sahw when I repeat the sunnah to after the jamaat?



1. You have to perform the four rakaats sunnat after the fardh salaah.

2. No.

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