Dear Mufti sb.
salam masnoon

kindly answer me is it not correct and proved with authentic hadith to perform two rakhath nafl before Mghrib salah? Why we Ahnaf do not perform it even occasionally.

The answer to your question is as follows:

The permissibility of Nafl before Maghrib Salaats is verified by various Ahadith. However, this was not a constant practice of the Prophet of Allah (saws). In fact, nor was it the practice of the Khulafaa-e-raashideen. Instead, the actual practice of the Prophet of Allah (saws) and the majority of many companions was to hasten with the Farz of Maghrib Salat. The Hanafi scholars have ruled that it is Makruh to delay the Farz of Maghrib for no valid reason. And the 2 Rakaats before Maghrib due to it being in the category of Nafl and not Sunnat is not a valid reason for this cause. Just as one can perform it before Maghrib, he could perform it after Maghrib Salaat as well. (And Allah knows best)
