Fataawa al-Lajnah ad-Daa.imah lil-Buhooth al-‘Ilmiyyah wal-Iftaa. – Question 11 of Fatwa No.6364

Question: What is the ruling regarding reading the Qur.aan in congregation especially on the day of Jumu’ah (Friday) before the imaam arrives?

Response: All Praise is for Allaah, the One, and prayers and salutations upon His Messenger, his family and his companions. To proceed: This is not permissible as specifying the day of Jumu’ah [for this act], before the imaam arrives, is an innovation.

And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet ﷺ and his family and his companions.
