        To Say Ẓuhr Prayer as well If Friday Prayer Is Delayed

        Q. Assuming the Friday prayers are said more than two hours after the ẓuhr prayer’s adhān, ought one also to say the ẓuhr prayer (in addition to the Friday prayer)?
        A: The time for Friday prayers starts from the beginning of the 'noon' and obligatory caution dictates that it ought to be said early after 'noon' (as expressed by laity), i.e. within 1-2 hours after 'noon'. Assuming the prayer is said after this 1-2 hour time span, then obligatory caution dictates the necessity of performing the ẓuhr prayer in addition.
