Friday Prayer, known to all Muslims as Jumu’ah prayers صلاة الجمعة‎, is a congregational prayer held at noon every Friday. The Friday Prayer, which consists of two rak’as, replaces the Zuhur prayer which consists of four Rak’as. Friday Prayer is always preceded by a Khutba/Sermon by the Imam. All Muslim men are required to attend the Friday Khutba and to perform the Jum’3a Prayer at a Mosque. It is not mandatory for women to attend the Khutba or to perform the Friday prayer at the mosque. Women can simply perform the Friday Zuhur Prayer at home. However, many women like to go to the mosque on Fridays to listen to the Khutba and to perform the Zuhur Prayer there.

God says in Sura #62, titled Al Jumu’a, verses 9 and 10,


“O’ you who believe (in God), when the call (i.e. Azthân) is made to prayer, on the day
of Friday (the Day of worshiping Assembly/congregation ), proceed earnestly to the
Remembrance of ALAAH, and cease the trading and selling. That is best for you if are
just know! And when the Prayer is completed, then go disperse in places (land), and
pursue or seek out what is available of ALAAH ’s Bounties and remember Allâh so often
so that you that you succeed and prosper.”
