Ruling 973

It is recommended that in the Friday prayer, and in ṣubḥ, ẓuhr, and ʿaṣr prayers on Friday, and in ʿishāʾ prayers on Thursday night, one should recite Sūrat al-Jumuʿah in the first rakʿah after Sūrat al-Ḥamd, and Sūrat al-Munāfiqūn in the second rakʿah after Sūrat al-Ḥamd. If a person begins reciting one of these surahs in prayers on Friday, then based on obligatory precaution he cannot leave it and recite another surah.
