While traveling I caught up with a resident Imam (the one who leads congregational Prayer) in the last Tashahhud (testification recited in the sitting position in the last unit of Prayer) of Jumu`ah (Friday) Prayer. Upon his saying Taslim (salutation of peace ending the Prayer), I performed two Rak`ahs (units of Prayer) to complete my Salah (Prayer). Is what I did correct?
Whoever joins an Imam in just Tashahhud of Jumu`ah Prayer is considered to have missed performing Jumu`ah Prayer, since the least with which one can join Jumu`ah Prayer is one Rak`ah (with the Imam). Thus, you should make up for the Salah as four Rak`ahs as an ordinary Zhuhr (Noon) Prayer.May Allah grant us success. May Allah's peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
