Is it allowed to offer Jummah prayer inside the house when moving outside could be dangerous and/or life threatening?

How do we know our jummah or any other prayer is being accepted?

How do I make up for the Jummah prayers I have missed for months?


It's not allowed to offer Juma prayer alone, as that won't be a Juma prayer at all. In case you miss juma, you just have to offer Zuhr prayer.

A muslim should keep in mind the inevitability of death. So if the time of death has arrived, then even if one goes to masjid to pray Juma, or stays at home and pray, death will surely reach anywhere one tends to go and no matter what you are doing. So one should have trust in Allah and do what is right, As no one can change the time of death.

    There is no Qaza for Juma prayer, you just have to do qaza of Zuhr prayer, at place of Juma prayer – Farhan Nov 29 '13 at 15:16
  • @farhan it might be worth offering the minimum number for jammat. Here is what I found: spa.qibla.com/issue_view.asp?HD=1&ID=1267&CATE=4 – Pureferret Jan 2 '14 at 7:36

  • Your comment is misleading the qaza for Jumua' prayer is praying Zuhr at place of Jumua' prayer as you correctly mentioned in your answer! And if one has a minimum of Jammat at home he could pray Jumua' at home if they fear from some kind of danger: One (man) as an Imam performing a short khutba and at least an other man who is ma'mum! – Medi1Saif Feb 18 '16 at 9:51

While in gazwas and wars, one jammat of Muslims pray in mosque and other ppl guard them, they used to do for protecting themselves. So Muslims should do this.

  • Well if you had a reference for a Jumua' prayer during a war or battle that would be helpful! But please consider adding references to your statements or at least a logical explanation! As is your answer is more likely to be a comment! – Medi1Saif Feb 18 '16 at 9:52
