Q. “What is the position of jum’ah prayer in journey? How far the jum’ah prayer is mandatory when one is on travel?”
A. Jum’ah prayer is not mandatory (fard) on a traveller. It is permissible for him to perform the Zuhr prayer instead of Jum’ah. But since the Jum’ah prayer is far more rewardable than the normal Zuhr prayer, one should not miss it as far as possible even when he is on journey.
