What is the ruling on having a second congregational prayer in the mosque?

What is the ruling on having a second congregational prayer in the mosque?

Answer:
It is disliked to have a second congregational prayer in the mosque which isn`t visited by travelers like the neighborhood`s mosque, and which has an appointed Imam, save with the latter`s permission. Nevertheless, if the mosque is visited by travelers, it is permissible to have a second and a third congregational prayer, whether it has an appointed Imam or not, or whether he permits that or not.

This answer was collected from the official government Iftaa Department of Jordan.
