Company not allowing one to go for Jumuah Salaah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I’m currently working in a company and my director doesn’t permit us to go out of institute to offer jumma prayer. We are only 6-7 Muslims in the whole institute. And the masjid which is nearest, we could not hear its adhan. Can we offer jumma in jamaat in which one person would say azan and one person would be an imam and he’d read khutba. We can offer namaz in a pantry room. Is it permissible or going to masjid is mandatory?


A: It is compulsory for you to go to the Musjid for Jumuah Salaah. If they do not allow you to go for Jumuah Salaah, then you should look for another job.

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