We work at the Petromin Refinery

Q: My work is a two-hour walk from the Masjid (mosque) and I do not own a car to go to offer the Jumu`ah (Friday) Prayer at the Masjid and then return back. No one forces me to stop working and I do this for my own interest and for the far distance. I am confused and do not know what to do. Please guide me to what leads to good. May Allah reward you best!

A: If the matter is as you have described, you do not have to offer Jumu`ah but you have to offer Zhuhr instead. It would be better if you seek work near urban areas in the future so that you would be near a Masjid to pray Jumu`ah and other congregational prayers, listen to sermons and learn about the religion. We ask Allah to grant you and us success! (Part No. 8; Page No. 196) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
