Leading ‘aṣr prayer by other than Friday imām

Q: Is one allowed to recite one’s afternoon prayer behind a person other than the Friday prayer imam?

A: There is no objection to saying one’s afternoon prayer behind a person other than imam of the Friday prayer; however, when one wants to say the afternoon prayer in congregation, then the absolute caution is to read it behind the individual who has read the noon prayer after Friday prayers according to caution.
