أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن يعقوب بن يزيد، عن حماد بن عيسى، عن حريز، عن زرارة بن أعين، عن أبي جعفر (ع) في حديث طويل يقول: اقرء سورة الجمعة والمنافقين فان قراءتهما سنة في يوم الجمعة في الغداة والظهر والعصر ولا ينبغى لك ان تقرأ بغيرهما في صلاة الظهر - يعنى يوم الجمعة - إماما كنت أو غير إمام.


1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Yaqoub Bin Yazeed, from Hamaad Bin Isa, from Hareyz, from zarara Bin Ayn, (It has been narrated) from Abu ja’far (asws) in a lengthy Hadeeth, saying: ‘Recite Surah Al-Jummah (Chapter 62) and Al-Munifiqeen (Chapter 63), for in the recitation of both these is Sunnah on the Day of Friday, in the morning (Prayer), and Al-Zohr, and Al-Asr. And it is not befitting for you that you should recite with other than these in Al-Zohr Prayer meaning the day of Friday whether you are leading (the Prayer) or are not leading it’.
