I have a mosque near my house, which is very disturbing. They have 12 speakers outside and 8 inside, so it becomes too difficult if your praying inside and even at friday prayers. They start everything before sermon and are very disturbing. My father would go to some other mosque and his father before him. The mosque my dad and his dad use to go is Lal Masjid and so did i, but after the Seige and the molvi dressing up in veil to escape had dishearten me, as one should be true and honest and should be ready for jihad, if he/she think its the right cause.
My question is that given those circumstance, can we pray Friday prayer in home (given that you cannot go to any other mosuqe), because certainly Deobandi make a lot of fuss on speakers and one get irritated to them and they say loudly Darood after namaz which is broadcasted in every 12 speakers in loud voice.

  • What is your sect btw? – muslim1 Mar 28 '14 at 15:28
  • AFAIK, Friday prayer is a congregational prayer. i donot think praying Jumu'ah alone is valid. Disliking a masjid is not correct, too. – user2724 Mar 28 '14 at 20:02
  • @muslim1 , that's an unexpected question and the answer he is going to give is an unwanted information ... perhaps u got my point ... :) – user2724 Mar 28 '14 at 20:06

The general ruling of Jummu'ah prayer is that it's NOT fard, unless you hear the adhan. Allah said in Surah al-Jummu'ah 62:9 =

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِذَا نُودِيَ لِلصَّلَاةِ مِن يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ فَاسْعَوْا إِلَىٰ ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَذَرُوا الْبَيْعَ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

O you who have believed, when the called for the prayer on the day of Jummu'ah, then proceed to the remembrance of Allah and leave trade. That is better for you, if you only knew.

So if you hear the adhan, then it's Fard upon you to go and gather with the nearest place of jama'ah. There's no exceptions given from the Quran nor any authentic sayings of Rasolullah.

You don't have to listen to the Khutbah. Just pray and leave.
