But I do not offer zuhr salah on Fridays as it replaces jummah.   But I couldn’t ask the imam as don’t aware of saheeh hatheeths on these. Please clarify on this with hatheeth to ask the imam.

Answer:

Bismillah

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

The Jummah Salah is a substitute for the Zuhr Salah on Friday. There is no need to pray Zuhr on Friday. (Fatawa Darul Uloom Deoband p.137 v.5)

It is possible that the Imam and the followers may be praying four rakaats sunnah before the Jummah afer the first Azan.

Saaiduna Ibn Abbas raḍyAllāhu 'anhu (may Allāh be pleased with him) reports that the Prophet of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) used to perform four rakaats of Salah before and after the Jummah Salah” (Tabraani)
