As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

Based on your specific question and information provided.

From the Jurisprudence Perspective:  Whenever the Friday prayer takes place with all its conditions fulfilled, if the one establishing it is the infallible Imam (ʿa.s ) or his specific representative, it is obligatory to attend it; otherwise, it is not obligatory. During the Al-Ghayba (  الغيبة )( Occultation period of the infallible Imam, Al-Imam Al-Mahdi (as), Friday prayer is an optional obligation (al-wājib al-takhyīrī), meaning that on Fridays, someone who is legally obliged to fulfil religious duties (mukallaf) has the option to either perform the Friday prayer – if all its conditions are fulfilled – or to perform the ẓuhr prayer; and if he performs the Friday prayer, it will suffice in place of the ẓuhr prayer.)

Taking part in Friday and congregational prayers of the Ahl-e Sunnat is permissible in areas where Taqiyah (dissimulation) is required. If you are not going to face a problem, you should, as far as possible, prostrate on something upon which Sajda (prostration) is permissible. Prostration on carpets and folding hands in the case of Taqiyah or out of necessity is permissible and there would be no objection in it. Also, it is obligatory upon you to recite first chapter al-Hamd and the second chapter yourself – with the recitation in a low voice though.
In any case, Friday prayers performed with them is not sufficient for Zuhr prayers. Therefore, it is necessary to perform Zuhr prayers separately.
