If I am at the masjid on the day of Jumu`ah while the sermoniser is badmouthing the scholars of the Sunnah and the rulers, am I permitted to leave the masjid?
Shaykh Muḥammad Bāzmūl
You are permitted to distract yourself from what is being said, complete the prayer afterwards and then never return. .. What I am saying is that you entered already and I am afraid that if I were to tell you to go to another masjid you would miss the Jumu`ah prayer…
In that case let me explain further: if it is possible for you leave this masjid and make in time to another masjid – a masjid of the people of Sunnah – and attend the Jumu`ah there, do so. Otherwise, distract yourself from listening to what he is saying until he is finished and you pray and never return to this masjid.
