    If people are already sitting in first rows for Salat-ul-Jumu'ah, it is prohibited for the latecomer to move forwards by jumping over the necks of people. The Prophet of Rahmah, the intercessor of Ummah ﷺ said, 'One who jumps over necks on Friday, has made a bridge towards hell.' (Sunan-ut-Tirmizi, vol. 2, pp. 48, Hadees 513)

    One of its meanings is that people will enter hell by trampling over him. (Footnote: Bahar-e-Shari'at, vol. 1, pp. 761, 762)

    One should reach the Masjid early for Salat-ul-Jumu'ah. If he got late and the sermon started, he should stop where he got space and should not even move a step forward. Ala Hadrat, Imam Ahmad Raza Khan has stated: It is Haraam to walk during the sermon. Scholars even said, 'If one reached Masjid when the sermon has started, he should stop where he reached. He should not move forward as it would be an act and no act is permissible during the sermon.'
    (Fatawa Razawiyyah-referenced, vol. 8, pp. 333)

    He Rahmatullahi Ta'ala Alayh has further stated, 'Even seeing somewhere by turning the face is Haraam during sermon. (Ibid, pp. 333)
