Four rakaat sunnah before the Azaan of Jumuah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If a person starts reading the four rakat sunnah before the jumaah khutba azan, and azan begins, what do i do? Make it 2 rakats, or read all four rakats? If I start my sunnah before the azan of the khutba, and know that I can finish the full four rakats before the azan ends, can I perform the four rakats?

Bismillaah

A: It is better to shorten the qiraat and complete the salaah. You may read the four rakaats if you know that you will complete by the time of the azaan.
