The second Friday khutba and prayer

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

My local Masjid which is run by Hanafis pray the Jumuah salat more than once due to the lack of space. I missed the first salat and waited for the second, I noticed that the second Imam gave the khutba and led the salat on the same spots the first Imam used.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam,

The second Friday khutba and prayer are permitted if there is no space in the first, and no other congregations in the same area, as explained by major Hanafi scholars of our time.

Walaikum assalam,

Faraz Rabbani.
