Is it necessary for those who live abroad and who cannot perform Friday prayers to migrate to another country?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Friday prayer is not fard in dar al-harb.

Friday prayer is not fard for women and travelers but if they go to the mosque and perform it, it replaces the noon prayer. It is not necessary for them to perform the noon prayer.

Likewise, the same thing holds true for those who live in a non-Muslim country (dar al-harb). If they gather together to perform the Friday prayer, though it is not fard for them, that prayer replaces the noon prayer.

However, according to Shafii madhhab, it is fard for everyone who has the conditions of Friday prayer and everywhere to perform Friday prayer.

Those who cannot perform Friday prayer do not have to migrate. However, if they are prevented from performing their daily prayers abroad and are under pressure, it will be appropriate for them to migrate. However, since Friday prayer is not fard abroad, it is not necessary for a person who cannot perform Friday prayers to migrate to another country.
