why do we perform 2 rakats in Fajr, 3 in maghrib and 4 in zohar, asr and Isha?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

Praying the number of Rakats in Fard Salah is reported as a Hadith Mutawatir, consecutively reported to us from the Messenger صلي الله عليه وسلم and there is so much Hikma (wisdom) behind this which is not known to us.

فالمتواتر ما نقله جماعة عن جماعة لا يتصور توافقهم علي الكذب لكثرتهم واتصل بك هكذا مثاله نقل القرآن وأعداد الركعات ومقادير الزكوة
(أصول الشاشي)

And Allah knows best .
