Skipping the Friday Prayer

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by SunniPath Answer Service Team

I am an university student, Friday during salatul jumuaa I have classes. Should I just go for salatul jumuaa or can I disregard some?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful & Compassionate

From a previous question answered by Shaykh Muhammad ibn Adam al-Kawthari:

Friday prayer is personally obligatory (Fard Ayn) upon every Muslim. It has been established from the Qur’an, Sunnah and the consensus of the Ummah. It is one of the most important features of Islam. The one who rejects it is a Kafir and the one who misses it without a valid excuse is a Fasiq.

To miss even one Jumu’ah prayer without a legally valid excuse is highly sinful, and to miss three is totally unacceptable, with Allah Most High sealing the heart of the transgressor due to which no good enters his heart.
