It is incorrect to pray Dhuhr after Jumu'ah prayer

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I heard from some imams that under the following situations we have to pray another 4 rakat Fard zuhur prayer (noon prayer) after the 2 rakat Juma (Friday) prayer, is it true?
  1. if we are far from Saudi Arabia or
  2. if we are not staying in an Islamic Country or
  3. if we don't have any Islamic leader as our government in the country

Kindly answer my question, since I found that many old people they follow these in our country, however, I didn't find any Hadith relating to these things.

May Allah (s.w.t) bless you. Thank you.

Praise be to Allaah.

Praying four rakahs after Jumuah prayer is the opinion of some Madhhabs, and has nothing to do with staying in Makkah or far away, or being in an Islaamic country or not, or whether or not there is a khaleefah. The existence or permission of a khaleefah is not a condition for Friday prayers being obligatory or valid, according to Ahl al-Sunnah wal-Jamaaah. (Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daaimah, 8/187)

Having dealt with what you have heard from people who have no knowledge, but who are unfortunately in the position of "imaams," as you said, we move on to the basic issue of offering salaat al-dhuhr after salaat al-jumuah. Our answer to this question is that the truth is the opinion of the scholars, most of whom say that there is no basis in shareeah for offering dhuhr prayer after jumuah prayer if a person has prayed jumuah. The one who misses jumuah or does not attend it because it is not an obligation for him or her, such as women, sick people or travellers, must pray dhuhr. It was never reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) or any of his Companions prayed dhuhr after praying jumuah. If he had done so, there would be reports to that effect.

We ask Allaah to give you and us help and strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad .

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
