Traveller Leading Friday Prayers

Q:

Salaam Alaikum

Can a traveler who is not staying for 10 days in a city he is visiting lead Juma’a prayers were most of the congregation is praying with Wajib niyat.

Jazak’Allah

With salaams & duas

A:

Salaam Alaykum.

 As per Ayatull….Sistani, a traveller praying shortened prayers can lead salaatul jumu’ah. he can also lead the ‘asr prayers and after his 2 units (rakaat)he finishes his salaah, and the others finish the remaining two units (rakaat) on their own.
the reward for congregational prayers is observed.
