Qadha for breaking one's sunnats or nafl salaah

Q:

1. If we started four rakat sunnat ghair mukkadah, before Asr or Esha, but jamaat salaah starts and we quickly pray two rakaats instead of four, do we need to pray these four rakats later after the jamaat? (as I have read or heard that once we start even a nafl, it becomes wajib to complete it).

2. In case of two rakats of tahiyyatul masjid, jamaat starts right after we started two rakats, and we made salam to come out of it, do we need to offer two rakats later (which we started but could not complete before jamaat)?

A:

1. No.

2. Since you broke the salaah, you will have to make qaza of the two rakaats.

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