Making two jamaats in a Musjid

Q: A school in our locality performs Zohar Salaah in the Musjid before the Musjid actual time. The Musjid time is 13:15 The Schools performs salaah at 12:45. Is this permissible? The school is situated next to the Musjid.

A: The namaaz is valid, but to make a second jamaat in the Musjid is not permissible.

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