How many rakaats in jumuah salaah?

Q: How many rakats in jumma salaah?

A: After the first azaan of jumu`ah and before the second azaan, four rakaats of sunnat namaaz should be offered. This sunnat is sunnat-e-mu'akkadah. After the khutbah, two rakaats fardh of jumu`ah namaaz should be offered with the imaam. Thereafter, four rakaats sunnat should be offered followed by another two rakaats of sunnat.

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