    Taqaballahu minna wa minum

    PS – When The Eid falls on Friday (also an Eid), that is 2 eid in a day, what are the ruling on Eid and Jumuaah prayers? There is alot of discussions going on and fatwas. A friend of mine asked me is it okay to leave the Friday prayer if he had fulfilled the Eid prayer as he heard the Eid prayer is suffice

    The fiqh discussion is quite long for this matter and I did not have the time to type. So in short, according to my limited knowledge, it all came back to the hukm (ruling) of the Eid prayer.

    So if he took the ruling that Eid prayer is Sunnat Muakkadah (supererogatory), then it is not allowed for him to leave the Friday Prayer. If he believed that Eid Prayer is Wajib (compulsory) than he may pray Jumuah or leave Jumuaah and just pray Zuhr (his choice). Wallahualam

    Why? Because the sunnat cannot cover the Wajib but the wajib can cover the sunnat. This is a standard in all rulings *(hukm).
