Questioner: I have an examination, but it is on the day of Jumu’ah. Can I pray Zhuhr instead of Jumu’ah?
Dr Sharof: No, examination is not from the conditions that can make one leave Solaatul Jumu’ah. Don’t you know what Solaatul Jumu’ah is? It is not to be handled in an inconsequential manner. That is it.
