عن عائشة -رضي الله عنها- أن النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- كان لا يَدع أربعا قَبل الظهر وركعتين قبل الغَدَاة.
[صحيح.] - [رواه البخاري.]

‘Ā’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) did not ever leave praying four Rak‘ahs before Zhuhr and two Rak‘ahs before Fajr.
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Al-Bukhari]

Explanation

The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) always used to pray four voluntary Rak‘ahs before Zhuhr prayer, and this does not negate or contradict Ibn ‘Umar's Hadīth that reads: "two Rak‘ahs before Zhuhr". In order to compromise these different two narrations is; that sometimes he would pray two, and sometimes four, and each companion informed either of the cases from the Prophet. This is permissible in many of the voluntary acts of worship. He used to either pray four Rak‘ahs before Zhuhr with two Taslīms, or pray four Rak‘ahs with one Taslīm.
