Bismillah hir Rahman ir Rahim

Dhu’l Nun al-Masri: What is love? “It is to love that which Allah loves, to hate that which Allah hates, to perform all good, to reject everything that diverts you from Allah, and not to fear any blame for the sake of Allah, while being gentle with believers, firm in facing the disbelievers, and to follow the Messenger Sall-Alalhu alayhi wa sallam."

Conditions for Validity of Jumu'ah

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) The area in which I work has no mosques and the company for which I work employees very few Muslims. For this reason I am having problems praying my Jumu'ah.

Can you please advise me as to what to do. The closest mosque is a few miles away (20 miles); if I were to go there I would not make it back in time. My lunch break is only one hour.


A.) In order for Jumu'ah to be valid, it is not necessary that it be performed in a Masjid. The condition for the validity of the Jumu'ah is that it must be a town or city and there must be at least three adult Muslim males besides the Imam.

If the area of your work is a town or city, we suggest you and the other Muslim employees perform Jumu'ah at the workplace or in a nearby venue. You may discuss that with your administration or alternatively rent a place nearby every Friday to perform Jumu'ah there.

And Allah Knows Best
