Assalamu 'alaikum wa rahmatu Allah wa barakatuh.

I've been working late at night and consequently I slept at morning, my friend told that he would wake me up when the time of salat Al-Jumu'a صلاة الجمعة comes, but he had to go before that and didn't wake me up, and so I was left asleep and missed the salat.

The story above tells that I missed the Jumu'a unintentionally, what should I do in this case? I just prayed Dhuhr, is there anything else/other I should do?

Answers with references are preferred, please.

Jazakum Allah Khair in advance.

Assalamu 'alaikum brother,

قال صلّى الله عليه و سلّم : " ليس في النوم تفريط . إنما التفريط على من لم يصل الصلاة حتى يجيء وقت الصلاة الأخرى . فمن فعل ذلك فليصلها حين ينتبه لها . فإذا كان الغد فليصلها عند وقتها". أخرجه مسلم).

The Messenger of Allah, upon whom be peace, said, "There is no negligence in sleeping, but the negligence lies in not praying a prayer until the time of the next prayer has come. And whosoever does so should pray as soon as he becomes aware of the negligence." [Muslim]

If You missed salat Al Jumu'a unintentionally, just do salat duhr instead, And please pay more attention for it next time :)
