Q: I work for a company where I luckily get my break by another colleague from 1300 to 1400 where I perform jummah, but I get this break from a Muslim brother. So I asked him to give me the break every second Friday at 1400 so he can attend jummah one week and I can attend the next week? I cover one site only and he works for my company. At the lunch breaks he relieves different people throughout the day. Is it okay for me to do that, otherwise he will end up not performing jummah at all?
A: Both of you cannot leave out Jumu`ah under any circumstance.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
