Salah for a traveler intending a stay for more than four days
Q: We would like to inform Your Eminence that
the Joint Command
and their army men perform Salah in complete form as well as Jumu‘ah (Friday) Prayer.
This is only out of their speculations because they live in buildings. We do not know when we shall receive the orders to go to our country or any other place, so we hope you will give us a Shar‘y (Islamic law-based) Fatwa (legal opinion issued by a qualified Muslim scholar) regarding whether should we offer the Five Obligatory Daily Salah (Prayers) in complete form or not? Are we required to perform Jumu‘ah (Friday) Prayer?
It is obligatory upon them to complete Salah because of their determination to stay more than four days. (Part No. 6; Page No. 408) As for Jumu‘ah (Friday) Prayer, they should not offer it on their own but they should offer it with other people in the nearby Masjids (mosques) where Jumu‘ah Prayer is held, which makes it incumbent upon them as other inhabitants, based on the general evidence.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
