Imaam performing two jumuahs in one musjid

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: In our Masajids there are two Friday Prayers are being held. And one Iman leads the both Salah in terms of delivering the Khutabas and as well leading the salah. As we understand Juma is only Fard once not twice. Could you please help us to understand whether this is allowed or not, and give us some detail explanations in terms of it’s validity. We would like to share your explanations with the local scholars. 


A: This is incorrect. The imaam’s second namaaz as well as the congregation that follows him for his second jumuah is not valid.

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