Repeating sunnah salaah that was performed not facing the qiblah

Q: I had offered 2 rakaahs of sunnah after zuhr, but I forgot that I already offered it. So I offered it again, but I mistakenly faced the wrong direction instead of the Qiblah. Should I offer the sunnah again?

A: The sunnah salaah will only be repeated in the salaah time if one had not faced the qiblah. However, once the salaah time elapses, one will not have to repeat the sunnah salaah.

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