Captives' Salah

Q: There was a question from the command of a captive camp in Al-Artawiyyah regarding shortening and completing Jumu‘ah (Friday) Prayer where they stay in tents in large numbers. Their stay is limited to three months and they are surrounded by villages and the nearest village is two kilo meters away. Should they complete or shorten their Salah because the period is limited? Should they perform Jumu‘ah (Friday) Prayer in their camp? Could you kindly advise. May Allah reward you.

A: If the matter is as you mentioned, they have to offer the four-Rak‘ah Salah (Prayer consisting of four units) in complete form and they have to perform Jumu‘ah (Friday) Prayer just as other people do in nearby Masjids (mosques).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
