Hastening To The Friday Prayer For Fear of Missing It
Question:

A man sets out for the Jumu’ah prayer, whilst the prayer has already begun, should he run (hasten) so that he can reach the prayer or should he walk calmly – even if he misses the prayer?
Answer:

Alhamdulillaah; if he fears missing the Jumu’ah prayer, then he should hasten until he reaches and attains as much as a rak’ah – or more. As for if he is able to reach the prayer whilst walking in a calm manner – then this is better – rather it is the Sunnah. And Allaah knows best.
