About the Book

The Four Rak’ats before the Isha prayer: An assessment of its legitimacy

In some of the books of Islamic jurisprudence (Fiqh) there is a mention of the performance of four rak’ats of Salah before the actual obligatory (Fard) four rak’ats of the Isha Salah. This specific number of rak’ats of Salah before the Isha has been designated as being a Sunna ghayr mu’akkada (a non-insisted Sunna) by some jurists (Fuqaha).

Hence, it is not a practice that was consistently performed on a regular basis by the Holy Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), but at intermittent occasions. Some works also mention this specific number to be mustahab (praiseworthy) to perform.

Some recent scholars and more so laymen have held the assumption that there is no known evidence from the Hadith literature to support the basis for performing these four rak’ats before the Isha Salah. 

In the following detailed monograph by Dr. Abul Hasan Hussain Ahmed, this claim has been shown to lack complete validity and veracity, and contrary to such claims a number of proofs have been brought forth and analysed in a balanced and scholarly manner.
