I am studying in engineering college in New Panvel (Raigad district). We have a enough facilities for prayers in basement of our college. One Alim is also there who leads Zuhr (there are 5 jamat of Zuhr after every 15 minutes interval) and Asr prayers and there are 2 jamats of Jumuah prayers. I want to know 1. What are the condition for validity of Jumuah prayers in our college or at any place

If your college is located in a city then you may establish Jumuah in the basement of the college. Jamat is a condition in Jumuah i.e. there must be three more persons other than imam and khutbah should be in Arabic language before Jumuah salah and entry should be open for anyone wants to attend. One of the aims of Jumuah is the demonstration of Muslims as community; therefore it is better that only one jamat is held so that collectivity is demonstrated well.

Allah knows Best!
