Performing Jumuah Salaah in jamaat for villagers and travellers


1. I know that when one misses the Jumuah Salaah one has to pray Zuhur Salaah individually, not in Jamaah.

a. What about those in the villages that do not qualify for Jumuah Salaah, are they to perform Zuhur in Jamaah or individually?

b. A group of travellers, are they to perform Zuhur Salaah in Jamaah or individually since Jumuah Salaah is not Fardh upon them?


1 a. If there is a musjid in the village and it does not qualify for the validity for Jumuah they will perform zuhr in the village musjid.

b. If they are travelling together then they will perform Zuhr with jamaat.

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