Question: …he gave a fatwa that the Jumu’ah and Zuhr prayer are “dropped” (not obligatory) if one attended the ‘Eed prayer whether it is the imaam or [any of] the congregation,…

Response: If the ‘Eed coincides with Friday, then attendance to the Jumu’ah prayer for anyone who attended the ‘Eed prayer is “dropped” (not obligatory) except for the imaam. For certainly he is not relieved of this obligation except if the people do not gather for the Jumu’ah [prayer].

And with Allaah lies all the success, and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet Muhammad (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
