    How many rakat is Jumuah salah?

    I want to completely perfect friday prayers insha'Allah..

    At the moment I read 2 rakats for the masjid, 4 rakat sunnat. 2 rakat with the imam, 4 rakat sunnat at the end.

    Is there any more, or am I doing anything wrong?

    Assalamu `alaykum,
    You need to separate what's considered Friday prayer with what's considered something else.

    Friday prayer is kutba + 2 rakat

    Now there are sunnah prayers associated with the Friday prayer and those are the same as dhuhur.

    Before the prayer = 2 or 4 rakat (depends which school you follow, for shafi'is the sunnah is fulfilled by doing 2, for hanafis the sunnah is fulfilled by doing 4)4)

    After the prayer = 2 rakat


    So these are all the prayers that are associated with the Friday prayer.


    Additionally, there's a sunnah prayer called "salutation of the mosque", which are the 2 rakat you perform when you enter a mosque.
    Since people go to the mosque for Friday prayers, they usually do this sunnah as well.

    And that's it :) You seem to be doing great masha'Allah.

      According to the Hanafi school, Jummah Salat consists of 4 Rakaats of Sunnah, then 2 Fard (with the Imam), then 4 Rakaats of Sunnah, and finishing with a further 2 Rakaats of Sunnah.

      You can also read Nafl if you want (at the end of the last 2 Sunnah Rakaats), but that's optional.

          Oh

          Here is what happens at my local Masjid.
          • I get there at 1pm to sit and listen to the Imam giving a talk in Urdu.
          • The we follow the Imam in giving 4 Rakaats of Sunnah salat.
          • Then comes the Khutba.
          • Then we follow the Imam in the 2 Rakaats of Jumuah salat.
          • Then we listen to 2 or 3 minutes of duas from the Imam.
          • Then we follow the Imam in a further 4 Rakaats of Sunnah salat.
          • Then we leave.

          However, I may add here that half the prayer hall empties AFTER the duas of the Imam after the 2 Rakaats Jumuah salat, so these Brothers do not pray the 4 Rakaats Sunnah salat in the Masjid, although they probably do at home or whatever.

          Sooooooooooooooooo should we also be praying another 2 Rakaats before leaving the Masjid then as you stated?

          P.S.
          No I can't understand Urdu, but I love to listen to it anyway

            can anyone provide sources from quran/sunnah regarding the number of sunnah rakats before and after the jummah prayer?

              In our madhab:

              4 raka'aat Sunnah Muakkadah
              2 raka'aat Fard
              4 raka'aat Sunnah Muakkadah
              2 raka'aat Sunnah Ghayr Muakkadah
              (2 raka'aat Nafl)
              Rajab is a month of cultivation, Shaban is month of irrigating the fields, and the month of Ramadhan is a month of reaping and harvesting.”

                  Q: A brother from Algeria asks: "Is there Sunnah Ba'diyyah/Qabliyyah (supererogatory Prayer performed after/before an obligatory Prayer) performed on a regular basis before or after Jumu'ah (Friday) Prayer?

                  A: There is no Sunnah Qabliyyah before Jumu'ah Prayer according to what is sound of the two opinions held by scholars, but it is prescribed for the Muslim, when he comes to the Masjid (mosque), to pray whatever Allah enables him to pray, saying Taslim (salutation of peace ending the Prayer) after each two Rak'ahs (units of Prayer). This is because the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: The (optional) Salah by night and day should consist of pairs of Rak'ahs. Narrated by Imam Ahmad and Ahl-ul-Sunan (authors of Hadith compilations classified by jurisprudential themes) with a good Isnad (chain of narrators); the original is to be found in the Sahih without any mention of the day.)

                  Many Sahih (authentic) reports indicate that what is prescribed for the Muslim when they enter the Masjid (mosque) on Friday is to offer as many Rak'ahs (units of Prayer) as they wish before the Imam ascends the Minbar (pulpit). The Prophet (peace be upon him) did not specify whether it should be two, four or more. All of that is good, but the minimum is two Rak'ahs which is known as Tahiyyat-ul-Masjid (two-unit-Prayer to greet the mosque). With regard to offering Salah after Jumu'ah, there is Sunnah Ba'diyyah (supererogatory Prayer performed after an obligatory Prayer) performed on a regular basis, the minimum of which is two Rak'ahs and the maximum is four. This is based on the Hadith in which the Prophet (peace be upon him) is reported to have said: When anyone amongst you observes Salah after Jumu'ah, he should observe four Rak'ahs. The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to offer two Rak'ahs after Jumu'ah in his house. May Allah help us all to do what pleases Him! [Fataawa Ibn Baaz, Vol. 12, pp 386-87]
