Nasihah (Advice): Palaces in Paradise:
“Allaah will build a Palace in Paradise for whoever is diligent in observing 12 Sunnah Rak’aat (as follows): 4 Rak’aat before and 2 after the Zuhr Salaah, 2 after Maghrib, 2 after Esha and 2 before the Fajr Salaah.” (Tirmidhi)
Q. I am working for a company. due to time constraints of 30 minute lunch break ; i can only manage to perform 4 rakaats fard salaah .is it compulsory to perform my sunnats at home . Further more is it a grave sin not to perform it ?

A. Once the time of Salaah has expired, the Sunnah Salaat is lost and cannot be regained. The Sunnah Salaah of Zuhr is a highly emphasised Sunnah. You should endeavour to perform it whenever you find the opportunity.
And Allah Knows Best
