Salat al-Jumu’ah

Salat al-Jumu’ah is a congregational prayer on Friday which replaces the dhuhr prayer. It is compulsory upon men to perform it in congregation, while women may perform it so or may perform dhuhr salat instead. Salat al-Jumu’ah consists of a sermon (khutba) given by the speaker (khatib) after which two raka’ah are performed. There is no Salat al-Jumu’ah without a khutba.
