Exemption for Jumu'ah Prayer on the Day of Eid.

Q;just askin. . . . .eid prayer is sunnah, right? and Jumu'ah prayer is fardh, correct? then why exchange one for the other? if one had prayed in the eid, that should not substitute for the Jumu'ah which is fardh, am i correct on this? A;All-Praise is due to Allah, If the day of Eid occurs on Jumu'ah, then the prayer of Jumu'ah becomes no longer an obligation upon those who has performed the Eid prayer. They have the choice to perform it or leave it and instead offer the Zuhr prayer. The evidence for this ruling is the Hadith narrated from Zaid Bin Arqam who said: "The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) prayed the Eid prayer, and then he gave an exemption concerning the Jumu'ah, saying, 'Whoever wishes to pray it may pray it'. [Reported by Imams of four books of Sunan and Imam Ibn Khuzaimah graded it as sound]. (See Islamweb: 83811) And Allah knows best...
