    Title: Jum'aa Salat purpose

    Question: I am living in Australia. In some of the Masjid Jumuah starts long before the time starts, due to long day. Is it allowed to perform Jumuah before the time starts? Majority of the Muslim population is following other madhhab where I follow Hanafi madhhab. The nearest masjid from me will make the first Jumuah azan 5-10 minutes before the time starts and then 5 minutes later the second azan will be made, after that Imam will preach Khutbah. If I pray Jumuah in that masjid is it acceptable.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 779/H-113/TH=05/1435) Jumuah salah was not valid if offered before the time started. It is fardh to offer it again when the time starts. The first azan is also not valid before the time. It should be repeated if called before the time. You should offer Jumuah salah in a mosque where khutbah and Jumuah salah are offered in its due time.
