Performing Jumuah Salaah in a small town

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: The brothers of a certain town wish to commence having jumua at the musalla of the said town. Before giving permission we wish to first ascertain whether the town fulfills the requirements of having jumua. The town has approximately 1000 homes, more than 10 shops which include few hardware stores and 1 big supermarket, a clinic, school, post office and a taxi rank, all within the town. There is no police station but a police station is planned for the future. Approximately 40 brothers will attend the jumua. Please inform as to whether jumua will be permissible or not.


A: It is permissible.

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