Ruling on performing Jumu`ah Prayer without the Khutbah

A: Among the conditions of the validity of Jumu`ah (Friday) Prayer is delivering two Khutbahs (sermons) containing praise of Allah, the Two Shahadahs (Testimonies of Faith, i.e. Testifying that La ilaha illa Allah [there is no god but Allah] and that Muhammad is His messenger), sending peace and blessings on the Prophet (peace be upon him), recommending people to fear Allah and reciting some of the Qur'an that matches the subject of the Khutbah. If there are not two Khutbahs in the way mentioned above, the Jumu`ah Prayer is invalid and people should offer Zhuhr (Noon) Prayer, four Rak`ahs (units of prayer), in place of it.Accordingly, those who offered two Rak`ahs and did not precede them with two Khutbahs, their Prayer was invalid and they should repeat it as a Zhuhr Prayer, offering four Rak`ahs.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
