just wondering, its 4 before dhuhur, & 2 bfore asar; or 4 before, n 2 after dhuhur?

Q; I was asked on my page-Pray as you have seen me praying in regards to the Hadith  "Whoever will offer 12 Rak'at during the day and the night (apart from the fard prayers) for him a mansion will be built in Heaven. (4 before and 2 after Dhur, 2 after Maghrib, 2 after Isha and 2 before fajr). 
They said, 'just wondering, its 4 before dhuhur, & 2 bfore asar; or 4 before, n 2 after dhuhur?

A: All-Praise is due to Allah,
According to this Hadith it is 4 before Dhouhr & 2 after & none before Asr as mentioned in this Hadith…
Bearing in mind that to follow this particular Hadith is a great virtue that the Prophet (pbuh) has mentioned, 'for him a mansion will be built in Heaven'…
As for Asr there is no particular Sunnan Rawatib, but there is some virtues of nafl Prayers before Asr,The Prophet (PBUH) used to perform four Rak`ah before the `Asr prayer, separating them with Taslim (i.e., offering blessings) on the favourite angels who are near Allah's proximity and the Muslims and the believers who come after them.[At-Tirmidhi]
Furthermore he (PBUH) used to perform two Rak`ah before the `Asr prayer.[Abu Dawud].
Also the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “There is a Salat (prayer) between every Adhan and Iqamah; there is a Salat between every Adhan and Iqamah.” (While saying the same for the) third time (he (PBUH) added), “It is for him who desires (to perform it).”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
The Prophet Mentioned many virtues of Salah but the one that we have posted is a recommendable one to practice dur to its high rewards…
I must advise upon this subject that has been sighted by myself amongst many that we know come full force wanting to try and practice all these virtues at once and eventually come to a complete stop (Stop praying the recommendable Sunnan) some have even stopped Praying all together (& we seek refuge in Allah from that)
The Prophet (pbuh) said, “The dearest of actions to Allah is that which is done regularly, even if it is small.”[Bukhari & Muslim]
So in another words one should take thing in easy steps & eventually increase there worship acts for verily The Prophet has hinted this in the Hadith which is mentioned, and Allah does not like one to burden their soul more then what it can handle. Allah the Exalted said, 'Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity.' (2/286)
I ask Allah to keep us stead fast & to cling tight the Sunnah of His Prophet (pbuh), Ameen,
& Allah knows best…..
