Is it permissible to do business during the time of Jummah? if the company is owned by a Muslim.
As Salaamu Alaikum,
It is not permissible for a Muslim, upon whom Jumuah has become compulsory, to do business at the time of Jumuah. If however, non Muslims are hired, then there is no problem if the company owned by a Muslim be opened for business while the non Muslims are working in the company.
What is essential is that the Muslim upon whom Jumuah is compulsory, cannot be engaged in work or business at Jumuah time. It is required for him to leave aside everything and go for the Jumuah Salaah and khutba.
And Allah knows best,
