(Fatwa: 137/119/B=1434)

A person who could read a little recites two or four lines from the book of Khutbah it will suffice for Khutbah to be complete and Jumuah salah can be offered thereafter. If only surah fatiha is recited in Khutbah then too it shall be valid. There is no need to offer Zuhr salah.
