How are Friday prayers offered? No. of raka’at

Two Rak'at are offered in compulsory Friday prayers. Apart from this, there are some nawafil prayers also associated with Friday. Refer to following ahadiths for knowing how many raka’at (nawafil) are prayed after completing the compulsory Friday prayer:

It was narrated that Ibn Umar (RA) said: I prayed two raka’at with Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) before Zuhr and two afterwards, two raka’at after Maghrib, two raka’at after Isha’ and two raka’at after Juma’ (Friday prayer). As for Maghrib, Isha’ & Juma’, I prayed with the Prophet (PBUH) in his house. (Hadith No. 1698 (729), Book of the Traveller’s prayers, Sahih Muslim, Vol. 2).

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah (RA) said: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said, “When one of you has prayed Juma’a, let him pray four raka’at afterwards.” (Hadith No. 2036 (881), Book of Juma’a Prayer, Sahih Muslim, Vol. 2).

Basically, 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 Sunnah And 2 Rakaats Nafl.

Jazakallahu Khayra.
