Salat al-Jumah

    Salat al-Jumah

    Friday congregational prayer required of all Sunni men but not generally of women. For Shiis, it is required of every man only when an imam is present. If no imam is present, it is required only of the community in general. Salat al-jumah is held in the mosque and performed in straight lines, with men in front and women and children either behind or in a separate area. The khutbah (sermon) is a feature particular to the Friday service.
