Mufti Akmal in today's (Sept 25) Ahkame Shari3at on QTV took a question from a student somewhere who said due to local council and uni management restrictions on movement due to coronavirus in their area, they can't always leave campus for Jumah so if it was ok if they organized Jumah among the few friends restricted on campus. He said specifically regarding the izin aam point I mentioned being a precondition for Jumah to be established in our mazhab, but said a rukhsah can be given for such a situation and if someone among them is capable to lead Jumah, they can go ahead and do it on campus, which would be off limits to those not studying/working there. My question stands- I understand the covid restrictions regardless if you consider covid itself as the uzr or the governmental restrictions as the uzr. So why can't the pandemic situation be analogous to the situation with perpetual travelers or those in prison and normal Zuhr be prayed? Is my reasoning or question invalid or stupid?
