Answered by: Shaykh Umer Khan



Asalamu Alaikum,

Is the 2 rakats after the 4 sunnah of Jummah prayer Ghair Muakkadah or Muakkadah?

In the Ḥanafī madhhab, the four rakʻahs (units) of prayer after the obligatory (farḍ) Friday (Jumuʻah) prayers are considered sunnah mu'akkadah, an emphasized sunnah. The two rakʻahs of prayer after that are considered sunnah ghayr mu'akkadah, a sunnah which is not as emphasized.[1]
