1. At fajr time, it is sunnah to offer two rakaats of salaah before the fard salaah. These two rakaats have been emphasized greatly in the Hadith and should not be left out at any time. If on some day, it gets extremely late and very little time is left for the salaah, then at such a time of necessity; one should only offer the two rakaats of fard salaah. However, when the sun rises considerably, then one should make qada of the two rakaats of sunnah.

2. At zuhr time, one should first offer four rakaats of sunnah, then the four rakaats of fard and again two rakaats of sunnah. These six rakaats of sunnah are also necessary. There is great importance in offering them and it is a great sin to leave them without any valid reason.

3. At asr time, one should first offer four rakaats of sunnah and then the four rakaats of fard. However, the sunnah of asr time is not emphasized. If a person does not offer this sunnah, he will not be sinning. But the person who offers them will be greatly rewarded.

4. At maghrib time, one should first offer the three rakaats of fard and thereafter two rakaats of sunnah. These two rakaats are also necessary. Not offering them will amount to sinning.

5. At esha time, it is better and mustahab to first offer four rakaats of sunnah. Thereafter, the four rakaats of fard and again two rakaats of sunnah. If one wishes, he could also offer two rakaats of nafl thereafter. According to this, there are six rakaats of sunnah. If a person does not offer all these rakaats, then he should first offer the four rakaats of fard, and then two rakaats of sunnah, and thereafter he should offer his witr salaah. These two rakaats of sunnah after the fard salaah are necessary. Not offering them will amount to sinning.
