Performing zuhr at home on a Friday due to the the Musjid being very far

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is it okay for me to pray zuhr prayer at home on Friday instead of going to the masjid to pray jumah when the masjid is really far away? I don’t have a car yet to be able to drive there, and my family members are too busy with work and college to drive me to the masjid and then bring me back home.


A: If you cannot make any arrangement and the musjid is very far away in another area then you may perform Zuhr at home.

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