Performing Jumuah at school

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: We are an Islamic school in India. We offer Dhuhr salaat in our campus in congregation. Our school plans to start Juma Salaat in the school taking safety and security into consideration so that the students need not go out to the mosque for Namaaz. The nearest mosque is around 200 metres from our school. Can we offer Juma Salaat at our school with proper Khutbah of a Imaam?


A: Try your best to perform the namaaz at the musjid. To leave the musjid just for the convenience of the school is really showing disregard to the significance of the Jumu`ah, more especially when the musjid is so close to the school.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
