Q. “How many Rakat are sunnah muakkadah in jumah prayer? Is ther any difference between men and women in this respect? “
A.“It is obligatory for men to perform jumah prayer with jamaah the number of obligatory (Fard) salah of jumah is only two Rakat and six are to be performed after the congregational prayer is over .
As for women, the jumah prayer is not obligatory on them. They should offer their salah in their homes individually and should offer the normal Zuhr prayer instead of jumah The number of Rakat for them is the same as they perform at the time of zuhr, every day that is the four obligatory rakat and the six rakat as sunnah muakkadah four of which are to be performed before the Fard salah and two of them after it
The same number of rakat will be applicable to a man who has missed the jumah prayer in congregation and has no hope of getting the jamaah any where in the city In this case he too has to offer the zuhr prayer instead of jumah.
