Bismahe Subhana

To recite Namaaz e Jumma in 2 different places the required distance (shari fasla) according to Islamic law is followed when Namaaz e Jumma is Wajib (obligatory).

Due to the current situation in Pakistan, Islamic laws are not fulfilled, therefore to recite Namaaz e Jumma in 2 different places, maintaining the required distance according to Islamic Law as a condition is not necessary.

It should be made clear here that for Namaaz e Jumma, it is not necessary to recite it in a Mosque, it can be recited in any suitable place.
