The time of Dhuhr prayer starts after the sun passes its zenith and lasts until 20 min (approx) and before the call for the Asr prayer is to be given.

This prayer needs to be given in the middle of the work-day, and people normally make their prayers during their lunch break.

Dhuhr and asr time overlaps, apart from first 5 minutes of dhuhr, which is exclusively delegated for it. Asr prayer cannot be offered before Dhuhr time.

Asr can be split into two sections; the preferred time is before the sun starts to turn orange, while the time of necessity is from when the sun turns orange until sunset.
Shia (Jafari madhab) differs regarding start of asr time. Per all major Jafari jusrists, start of asr time is about 5 minutes after the time of sun passing through zenith, that time belongs exclusively to dhuhr prayer. Time for dhuhr and asr prayers overlap, but the Dhuhr prayer must be offered before asr, except the time about 10 minutes before sunset, which is delegated exclusively to asr. In the case that the mentioned time is reached, asr prayer should be offered first (ada - on time) and dhuhr (kada - make up, late) prayer should be offered after asr.

Juma Prayer time in South Africa (friday prayer) - 12:16 PM
Juma prayer in South Africa is performed in the afternoon every Friday instead of Duhr prayer. Juma prayer is obligatory for every Muslim man and women are also allowed to participate in it.
If you are a woman you can pray Dhuhr instead of Jumuah prayer, then it is not obligatory for you to go to mosque, so you pray Dhuhr. If you are a male and have a valid reason for not going to the mosque, you will also pray Dhuhr, so if you go to a mosque you will pray Jumu'ah, if you do not pray Dhuhr, there must be a valid reason for it. If you are not a woman, do not pray Jumu'ah and do not pray Dhuhr. E.g. If you are traveling or you are sick
