Eid on Friday by Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah

September 5, 2010

If Al-Jumu’ah and Al-‘Eid come together on the same day, then the Scholars have three sayings with regards to it. The third of them; which is correct is that: whosoever attends the ‘Eid, then the Jumu’ah falls away from him. However; it is upon the Imaam to establish the Jumu’ah prayer, to allow anyone to wishing to attend to do so – as well as those that did not attend the ‘Eid.

Since this is what has been conveyed from the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) and his companions, there is no differing known amongst the companions in that. So one who does not attend the Jumu’ah prayer instead prayers Dhuhr – thus the Dhuhr is prayed in its time.
