What to do when ‘Eed coincides with Friday-2

Reference: Majmoo’ Fataawa Samaahatu ash-Shaykh Ibn Baaz – Volume 4, Page 504, Fatwa No. 556

Question: If any of the two ‘Eeds fall on a Friday (Jumu’ah), do you pray the Jumu’ah [prayer] with its khutbah on that day or not?

Response: That which is legislated for the Muslims if the ‘Eed coincides with Friday is to pray the ‘Eed prayer and the Jumu’ah prayer in the masaajid (plural of masjid) where the Jumu’ah prayer is [normally] held. And it is permissible for one who attended the ‘Eed prayer to leave off the Jumu’ah and instead perform the Zuhr prayer.
