WHEN JUMUAH IS INVALID, PERFORM ZUHR
In our Musjid in Robertsham, Johannesburg, the Imaam was happy, and in a jolly way was counting people, and the musjid jamaat ensured that once the 100th person came in the gates were locked. The Imaam rushed through the salaah very badly.
I am very disheartened and feel like I never want to read behind these insane imams ever again. Was the Jumuah Salaat valid?
The police did not count. The jamaat stopped the people once they reached 100 and made them wait for the 2nd jamaat. Should I read Zuhr?
Yes you should perform Zuhr. The Jumuah was not valid. All these molvis and imaams are displaying their nifaaq. In this way has Allah Ta’ala exposed them. Those munaafiqeen who have closed the Musaajid despite the government not having made this demand are the worst scoundrels and agents of Iblees. They will have to circumambulate (make tawaaf) of their intestines in Jahannam according to the Hadith of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
Concerned Muslims should arrange their own Jumuah Salaat anywhere, whether in the open, a Jamaat Khaanah, a storeroom or in one’s home. The minimum number of musallis is four – the Imaam and 3 muqtadis. Do not participate in these mock ‘jumuahs’ if you are able to arrange for Jumuah elsewhere. However, if this is not possible in your context, then after having joined in the mock jumuah, perform four raka’ts Zuhr Fardh. The moron imaam should have left the counting and preventing to the police.
