What is the ruling of performing the Sunnahs of Jumuah Salaah before the time of Zawaal sets in, especially in the Haram of Makkah Mukarramah?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. If Azaan is given before Zawaal on the day of Jumuah, when does a person perform his Sunnats of Jumuah, before or after Zawaal? I noticed this in the Haram Shareef of Makkah Mukarramah. I’m a follower of the Hanafi school of thought.


A. In the enquired case, you should not perform your Sunnahs of Jumuah Salaah prior to the time of Zawaal as the actual time to perform the Sunnahs of Jumuah Salaah is after Zawaal. If however, you did not find time to perform the Sunnahs usually performed before the Jumuah Salaah, you may postpone it and perform it after the Jumuah Salaah.

This is the view of Majority of the Fuqahaa (jurists) including the Hanafi school of thought.
