Jumu’ah Salah

Shortened Question:

Is it still necessary for me to observe the Jumu`ah prayer in the particular case given?

Question:

Asalaamualykum-wa-Rehmatullaahi-wa-Barakaatahu-wa-Magfeeratahu! Mohatram Mufti sahab! Umeed hai Aap hazrat khairiyat se honge!

Aik maslaa yeh thaa ke mujhe company offshore bhej rahi hai wahaan par 28 ya 40 days bhi lag sakte hain. Jumaa ka maslaa thaa kya karun? Oos duration main kaheen par jaa bhi nahee sakte. Kam se kam samandar 50 km door hota hai khushki se. Iss silsile main tafseel se rehnumaayi farmayen. Jazaakumullaah!!!

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Is soorat mae aap kae zimma jumuah kae liyae jaanaa zarooree nahee. Wahee apnae maqaam par zuhr kee namaaz khud[1] adaa kar liyaa karae[2].

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
