I am doing my b tech in lpu punjab, where as my question is related to friday prayers. we have 3 masjids at a distance of 10- 20 minutes from our university and we donot have any masjid in our college and due to which many students abandon friday prayers and now some students started to pray in Hostel corridor which is affecting the passerby. Is it allowed to pray friday prayers at that place although we can pray outside campus, also the university administration is against it. moreover if students stopped going to outside masjids, they would be again abandoned as there is very less muslim population in that area.

If people are disturbed in case you start Jumuah in the corridor as well the administration of the university is against it then in such case Jumuah salah should not be held in the corridor. Rather it is better to offer Jumuah salah in the mosques outside the university. However, if sometimes you had to offer Jumuah salah in the university then you should perform Jumuah salah in any hall etc instead of the corridor.

Allah knows Best!
