Many says that women cannot pray zuhr before there men are back home from jumma prayer ..
And i have classes so have to leave at 1 pm so can i offer zuhr at 12:30 .?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

It is permissible for a woman and others (i.e. men) who are not obliged to perform the Jumu'ah (Friday) prayer to offer the Thuhr prayer before the Friday prayer (is prayed) after making sure that its time has started. Ibn Qudaamah  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said:

"As for those who do not have to perform the Jumu'ah prayer, such as travelers, ... women, ill people, and all those who are excused, then they may pray the Thuhr prayer before the Imaam performs the (Jumu'ah) prayer according to the view of most scholars.” [End of quote]

Based on the above, it is permissible for you to pray the Thuhr prayer on Friday after ascertaining that its time has started, even if this is before the end of the Friday prayer [in the mosque].

For more benefit on Thuhr time for women and those who are not required to offer Friday prayer, please refer to Fataawa 26697, 7679 and 117037.

Allah Knows best.
