The four rak’ahs before the ‘Asr prayer

Reference: Liqaa al-Baab al-Maftooh, Volume 24, Page 19

Question: In the hadeeth it mentions:

«Allaah is merciful to the one who prays four [raka’aat] before the ‘Asr [prayer]»

…is this to be done before or after the adhaan [of the ‘Asr prayer]?”

Response: If the hadeeth:

«Allaah is merciful to the one who prays four [raka’aat] before the ‘Asr [prayer]»

…is authentic, then what is intended is between the adhaan and the iqaamah.
