Sunnat Muakkadah of Jumuah Salaah

Q: I try to follow Imam Abu Hanifa's (rahimahullah) madhab here in USA. Please provide reference for my heart to be satisfied. The following are my questions

1. How many Sunnah mu’akkadah are there in Salat ul Jummah? My understanding is 4 before the fard and 4 after the fard.

2. Can we pray Salat ul Jummah 4 Sunnah mu’akkadah as units of 2 rakat or do we have to pray all 4 rakat with one taslim in the end?

3. Do we have to recite Quran after surah Al fatiaah in 3rd and 4th rakat of 4 Sunnah mu’akkadah (if prayed with one taslim in the end)?


1. It is 4 before and 6 after the Jumuah salaah.

2. 4 with one tasleem.

3. Yes.

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