    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 482/482=L)

     

    If this organization is located in a city, town or a big village with market like a town, then pray Juma salah in the same mosque. But, if it is situated in a village where Juma is not allowed then pray Zuhr salah with jamat in the same mosque. It is not necessary to go to city in order to perform Juma.
