Is Jumuah (Friday) prayer not fard (obligatory) for a musafir (traveler)? Should a person who is a musafir not perform the Friday prayer?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Saying that Friday prayer is not fard (obligatory) for a traveler does not mean that it is not permissible for a traveler to perform the Friday prayer. It means that a traveler is not obliged to perform the Friday prayer. That is, if a musafir finds an opportunity and performs the Friday prayer, his prayer will be valid like a person who is not a traveler. In this case, he is not obliged to perform zuhr (noon) prayer. He must perform the zuhr (noon) prayer if he does not perform the Friday prayer.
