Regarding the extra prayers of salatul dhur/zhur [the second obligatory prayer]

Volume 2, Page 8: Reports concerning six rak’at

‘Abdullah ibn Shaqiq said: “I asked ‘Aishah about the prayer of the Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) and she said: ‘He would pray four rak’at before zuhr and two after it.”‘ This is related by Ahmad, Muslim, and others.

Umm Habibah bint Abu Sufyan reports that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever prays twelve rak’at during the day and night will have a house built for him in paradise: four rak’at before zuhr and two after it, two rak’at after maghrib, two rak’at after ‘isha, and two rak’at before fajr.” This is related by at-Tirmizhi who called it hasan sahih. Muslim reports it briefly.

Volume 2, Page 8a: Reports concerning eight rak’at Umm Habibah reports that the Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever prays four rak’at before zuhr and four after it, Allah will forbid that his flesh be in the fire.” This is related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud, an-Nasa’i, Ibn Majah, and at-Tirmizhi who calls it sahih.
