The ruling on changing a Masjid for offering the Obligatory Prayers to a Masjid where the Jumu'ah prayer is also established
Question:

Is it permissible for the Jumu'ah prayer to be offered in a Masjid that was not originally intended to be used for offering the Jumu'ah prayer when it was established?
Answer:

If the matter is like what has been mentioned, there is no harm in changing the Masjid from being used for offering the congregational prayer to making it a Masjid where the Jumu'ah prayer and the congregational prayer are established . The fact that the Masjid was intended to be used for the congregational prayers when it was built, or that it was not intended for establishment of the Jumu'ah prayer, does not prevent it from being changed after its construction or before it to being a Masjid where the Jumu'ah prayer is established along with the congregational prayers. We do not know of anyone among the people of knowledge who mentioned this condition. Hence, it is a baseless condition that has no support in the book (the Qur'an) and the Sunnah.
