Performing a second jamaat in the Musjid

Q:

1. Is it true that it is Makruh according to the Hanafi Madhab to perform a second Jum’ah Jamat in a Masjid where the main Jamat has already taken place? The reason given for having a second Jum’ah Jamat is so as to make it easy for those that are doctors or teachers in a school and may find it difficult to get time off. The counter argument to this is that one must fit round the Fardh Salah time and not the other way round?

2. Is it Makruh in the Hanafi Madhab to perform a second Fardh Salah Jamat in a Masjid where the main Jamat has already taken place?

3. What is the position regarding having two or three Eid Jamats in one Masjid due to lack of space? The Salafis in our area manage to perform Salah in a field but we as Hanafis don’t. In some cases the reason for not performing outdoors is because of inclement weather. Is this a valid reason to perform Salah in the Masjid?

Bismillaah

A:

1. Yes

2. Yes

3. It is makrooh to perform a second jamaat for Eid Salaah in the same Musjid.

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