Prayers & Duties >> Jumuah & Eid Prayers

Question # : 20219


I am staying at a place (city) from where masjid is very far, it is in another city and takes aroud 1 hour to go by train. I am not sure whether there is any mosalla or parayer hall in my city or not, what should i do for JUMA namaz. I have one more friend with me, so we are two in number. Presently we are offering Zohar namaz with jamat (2 person), we also say Azaan and Iqamat before namaz. Please suggest if this is correct or any change is required.

If you perform Jumuah in other city going there by train it is better but it is not wajib on you to go there. Zuhar salah is fardh on you at your place. So, you along with your friend by calling Azan and Iqamah perform Zuhar, this is the ruling for both of you.

However, if you reside in city, and when you both are joined by other two Muslims, then Jumuah salah is fardh on you. One will lead Salah and other three would perform salah behimd him.

Allah knows Best!
