الاستفتاء

Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmathullahi wa Barakathuhu Hope you all are keeping fine and well. Hazrath what my question is ; How many Raka'aths are there in total in Jumma Namaz? How is it to perform Namaz while the Imam Sahib is delivering the Khuthba?

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

There are 12 Raka'ath in total in Jumma Salath consisting of 4 Raka'ath of Sunnath e Muakkada before and then 2 Fardh Raka'ath with Jama'ath and 4 Raka'ath of Sunnath e Muakkada and 2 Raka'ath of Sunnath e Ghairi Muakkada after.
When Imam stands up to deliver the Khuthba it is impermissible and Makrooh to indulge in any kind of talk or Salath, however if somebody has started the Sunnath Salath before the commencement of the Khuthba it may be completed.
