Leaving out the Sunnats of Zuhr due to time restrictions

Q: If fifteen minutes are left for Asar azaan time, and the person has to perform zohar prayer, should he pray fardh only or complete salah with four rakaats and two rakaats sunnah?

A: If the time of asr has not yet entered and one is able to perform the fardh of zuhr with its sunnats, then he should do so.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
