Eid Coinciding With Friday

If Eid and Friday coincide on the same day, is it necessary to pray the Friday prayer?

When Eid and Friday occur on the same day, it is not obligatory for those who prayed Eid with the Imam (capital 'i') to pray Jumu`ah. This is because the time for the Friday prayer is the same as the time for the Eid prayer. When I asked about the condition of having prayed with the Imam, I was told that today with the absence of the Imam that it is still valid to follow this ruling.

And Allah knows best
