Joining the Imam in Tashahhud - Did i get the Salaah or do I have to repeat it?


I was late for Jumu’ah and joined the Salah in Tashahhud. Did I get the Salah or do I have to make Zohr?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh


In principle, if one joins the Jumuah Salah while the Imam is in Qa’dah (Tashahhud), his Salah will be valid.


In the enquired situation, your Jumu’ah Salah is valid. There is no need to perform Zohr Salah.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
