(Fatwa: 1907/1537/B=1432)

The Jumuah time starts from zawal and ends when the Asr time starts. It is better to offer Jumuah just after the zawal. However, if it is offered at 2:00 or 2:30 due to some reasons, it is absolutely lawful. One who suggested that khutbah salah cannot be offered so late is wrong. You can offer Jumuah Salah at 2:30 or 2:45. Your khutbah as well as Salah shall be valid.

Allah knows Best!
