The Masnun Surahs of Jumu’ah Salah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

What is the Sunnah Qira’ah that the Imam should recite in Jumu’ah Salah?


There are three combinations recorded from the Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). One may alternate between them.


1) Surah Jumu’ah (Surah: 62) and Surah Munafiqun (Surah: 63)

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 877)


2) Surah A’ala (Surah: 87) and Surah Ghashiyah (Surah: 88)

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 878)


3) Surah Jumu’ah (Surah: 62) and Surah Ghashiyah (Surah: 88)

(Sahih Muslim: Hadith: 878)


It is Sunnah and ideal to recite these Surahs completely in each rak’ah, instead of splitting one surah over two rak’ahs.
