start of Jummah — khutba time

The Friday Prayer time

Non Hanafi view

عن أنس بن مالك رضى الله عنه : أَنَّ النَّبِىَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم كَانَ يُصَلِّى الْجُمُعَةَ حِينَ تَمِيلُ الشَّمْسُ . رواه البخاري (رقم/904)

It was narrated from Anas ibn Maalik (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) used to pray Jumu‘ah when the sun had passed the meridian. Narrated by al-Bukhaari (no. 904)

1-Imam Al-Shafi says in his Famous Book  called the “Al-Umm” (the Mother of Sciences) volume 1 page 223

” الشّاَفعيُّ : وَلاَ اخْتِلاَفَ عِنْدَ أَحَدٍ لَقِيته أَنْ لاَ تُصَلَّى الْجُمُعَةُ حتى تَزُولَ الشَّمْسُ.

هذا هو قول جماهير أهل العلم بعد إطلاعهم على أدلة من أجازها قبل الزوال و هم قلة قليلة.

The Contemporary scholars like sheikh Salman al-Odah say”After Zawal is the strongest and the most authentic opinion”

مثلا يقول الشيخ سلمان العودة في دروسه لعمدة الفقه

“بعد الزوال وهوا الأقوى والأصح دليلا…….إلخ”

The late Mufti of Saudi Arabia Sh.Bin Baaz said”it is better to pray after zawal to avoid controversy because majority of the scholars indicate that it should be done after zawal

ويقول مفتي السعودية الراحل شيخ إبن باز رحمه الله

” الأفضل بعد زوال الشمس خروجا من خلاف العلماء ؛ لأن أكثر العلماء يقولون لا بد أن تكون صلاة الجمعة بعد الزوال ، وهذا هو قول الأكثرين .”

That is what Imam Nawawi headlined a chapter in his commentary of Sahih Muslim “Chapter: Time of Friday is after Zawal of the Sun

ولذلك فقد بوَّب عليها الإمام النووي في صحيح مسلم بقوله (2/587) : ( باب صلاة الجمعة حين تزول الشمس)

Ibn Rajab in his commentary of the Bukhari being a Hanbali states a statement by Imam Ahmed that it (Friday Prayer) should not be done but after Zawal.

نقل الحافظ ابن رجب في “فتح الباري” (كتاب الصلاة/باب وقت الجمعة إذا زالت الشمس) عن أبي طالب نقله عن الإمام أحمد أنه قال : ” ما ينبغي أن يصلي قبل الزوال ” انتهى.

The Kuwaiti Islamic Ministry encyclopedia of Fiqh states

“The strongest opinion followed by the majority is that the time of Friday is the same time of Zuhr Prayer

وانظر: “الموسوعة الفقهية”  27/197
فالراجح هو قول جماهير أهل العلم ، أن وقت الجمعة
