Performing Salaah with Jamaat at home due to the Masaajid being closed


1. The musjids are closed, can I perform Jamaat at home with one wife, son 12 years, 2 daughters 11, 9 years old?

2. Can I perform Friday prayers with family holding Khutba and all? Musjids are closed due to cronavirus.


1. Yes.

2. If some people of the town get together and do the jumuah salaah collectively even though it may be in an open ground, the jumuah will be valid.

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