salaam `alaykum,

What is the Zaydi position on the status of the Jum`a salat in the absence of an Imam? What of attendance to a Jum`a organized by non-Shi`a, such as Malikis, Hanafis, or even Salafis? If one prays the Jum`a salat behind them, does that suffice for the obligation of zhuhr?

wa alaykum as salaam wa rahma!

Thank you for your question! We said previously that we would write a more detailed article about this issue but we haven't had the time. So, we will attempt to address the question as succinct as we can. According to our foundational texts, an imam is a precondition for the soundness of the Friday prayer. It is reported in the Majmu Imam Zaydon the authority of Ali, upon him be peace:

There are five things for the Imam: the Friday prayer...


One of our texts, Sharh at-Tajreed states it as a precondition. After citing proofs from the ahadith, the author states regarding the imamate being a criteria of the Friday prayer:

It is the doctrine (madhhab) of all the Ahl al-Bayt, upon them be peace, regarding what is known. Our doctrine is that their consensus is a proof.


As for the soundness of Jumu'ah with other madhaahib, belonging to the Zaydi madhhab is not a precondition for the soundness of Jumu'ah.

And Allah knows best!
