Praying Dhohr instead of jumuah


Aslamualaykum, I have to pick my A levels in a few months(UK), the A levels will determine what job I will get. I wanted to become a GP. However, as a GP I may only be able to pray my fardh namaz, and wont be able to go to the mosque, also I would likely not be able to read Jummuah. Could i read Zuhr instead. I am not a GP yet. I know that it will be unlikely that I will be able to read Jummuah, one of the most important prayers, as this will be the case would I be obliged to choose a career that will allow me to read Jummuah. Or can I pursue my path of GP, but sacrifise Jummuah and replace it with Zuhr


Assalamu Alaykum

Thank you for your Question

There is no need for you to change your career. One can certainly pray Salat al-Dhohr instead of Jumuah

hope this was useful
good luck
