The Jumu`ah (Friday) Prayer is two Rak`ahs (units of Prayer). Is it permissible for the Imam (the one who leads congregational Prayer) to recite one Surah after Al-Fatihah in both of them, or should he recite a different Surah in each Rak`ah?
A: It is prescribed for the Imam to recite in the Jumu`ah Prayer Surahs Al-A`la and Al-Ghashiyah, Al-Jumu`ah and Al-Munafiqun, or Al-Jumu`ah and Al-Ghashiyah, according to what was authentically reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him). It is permissible for the Imam to recite any Surah other than the mentioned ones; it is also permissible for him to recite one Surah divided between the two Rak`ahs, and his Salah is considered valid.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
