Can I offer prayers away from a Jamaat without being physically present there. This is a situation where I am ill and cannot go out for prayers specially the Juma prayers

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Can I offer my prayers at home as per the Jamat in the mosque. This means there is a Jamat offering prayers in the mosque which is close to my house. I can hear them from my room. Can I offer prayers with them as if I am physically present in the mosque i.e. doing as they do. This is a situation where I am ill and cannot go out for prayers specially the Juma prayers

Answer

If a person is ill and his health will be affected by presenting himself for the Salaat with Jamaat, then he is excused from performing that Salaat with Jamaat. (Tahtawi pg.298)

As for following the Salat from your home, then this will not be permissible.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
