Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:
I performed with the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) two
Rak`ah before and two after Zuhr prayers
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith has already been mentioned. See Commentary on Hadith No. 1098.

`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported:
The Prophet (PBUH) never omitted four Rak`ah
supererogatory prayer before Zuhr prayers
Some Ahadith state that he (PBUH) used to perform two Rak`ah before and two after Zuhr prayer.
The present Hadith says that he used to perform four Rak`ah before Zuhr prayer. Both narrations are correct and can
be followed according to conditions and circumstances.

`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported:
Whenever the Prophet (PBUH) stayed in my house, he
would perform four Rak`ah (supererogatory prayer) before Zuhr prayer. Then he would go out and lead Salat. He
(PBUH) would then come back and perform two Rak`ah (supererogatory prayer). He would lead the Maghrib prayer
and come back and perform two Rak`ah (supererogatory prayer). When he (PBUH) had led the `Isha' prayer, he
would enter the house and perform two Rak`ah (supererogatory prayer)

Umm Habibah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
observes the practice of performing four Rak`ah before Zuhr prayer and four after the Zuhr prayer, Allah will shield
him against the Fire (of Hell)
[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].
This Ahadith mean that a person who follows this course of practice, will die as a Muslim and will
not remain in Hell for ever like the Kuffar (infidels) unless Allah has forgiven all his sins for him and would, as a
result, save him from Fire altogether. That is, Almighty Allah will not let him live in Hell for ever. According to
some Ahadith, the fire of Hell will not touch him, which also amounts to saying that he will not be kept in Hell for
all eternity. If a Muslim is liable to punishment, his stay in Hell - for a few days or weeks or months depending on
the nature of his sins - is not a contravention of such Ahadith because he will ultimately be released from Hell and
brought to Jannah. "
Allah will shield him against the Fire
'' should not be taken to mean that a Muslim will not be
sent to Hell no matter what he does. If Almighty Allah does not forgive him in the very first instance, he will have to
suffer the torment of Hell as long as He would like and then he will be sent to Jannah.
