Not establishing Jumu`ah Prayer due to the existence of many Munkars

A: Offering the Jumu`ah (Friday) Prayer, preceded by the Khutbah, is an Islamic Faridah (obligatory act) upon Muslims in every city and village. It is not to be waived by the injustice or sinful acts of people. On the contrary, gathering together for Friday Khutbah and Salah is a good chance to mend any breach of the Shari`ah (Islamic law) that may emerge in society, where the Imam (the one who leads congregational Prayer) has the chance to reform people, clarify the rulings of Islam, and preach to and guide them; a thing that would benefit people both in the worldly life and in the Hereafter.
