Two Rak`aat after Jumu`ah Salah (Hadith No 757)


Volume 2, Book 13, Number 757:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Umar:
Allah's Apostle used to pray two Rakat before the Zuhr prayer and two Rakat after it. He also used to pray two Rakat after the Maghrib prayer in his house, and two Rakat after the 'Isha' prayer. He never prayed after Jumua prayer till he departed (from the Mosque), and then he would pray two Rakat at home.
  1. Don't miss the Sunnah prayers:
    rak`aat before Fajr
    2 or 4 before Dhuhr, 2 after it
    2 after Jumu`ah
    4 (optional*) before `Asr
    2 after Maghrib
    4 (optional*) before `Ishaa', 2 after it
  2. Pray the Sunnah prayers at home (for men). Especially the 2 rak`aat after Jumu`ah. Prophet (SAW) never prayed after Jumu`ah till he departed from the Mosque. So make it a point.

*Prophet (SAW) sometimes prayed these rak`aat, and sometimes he didn't. The other Sunnah prayers were offered regularly by him. He never missed them unless an exceptional situation came up.
