`Abdullah bin As-Sa'ib (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to
perform four Rak`ah prayer after the declining of the sun before Zuhr prayer and would say, "
This is an hour at
which the gates of heaven are opened, and I like that my good deeds should rise to heaven at that time
The Prophet (PBUH) used to perform the four Rak`ah Sunnah of Zuhr prayer when the sun started
declining. In fact, except for `Isha' prayer, he would perform every Salat at its early hours.
The phrase "
the gates of heaven are opened
'' to means that the good deeds that people do are lifted to heavens at that

`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported:
If the Prophet (PBUH) could not perform four Rak`ah
before Zuhr prayer, he would perform them after it (i.e., after the obligatory prayer)
This Hadith tells us about the preparation which the Prophet (PBUH) used to make for performing
the Sunnah. Every Muslim should, therefore, make full preparation for performing Sunnah. If one is unable to
perform it before the Fard prayer, then one must do it afterwards
