When is jumuah friday obligatory
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Topic: Who are exempted from the obligatory Friday mid-day prayers.
Salatul Jumuah is an obligation upon every free, adult, sane, resident, adult male believer who has the ability to attend the salah and does not have a valid excuse to miss it. Salatul Jumuah however, is not obligatory on the following:
- The person who is ill and faces hardship if he goes to the mosque, or who fears that his illness will be increased by going to the mosque, or whose recovery will be delayed. This also includes the person who is nursing a very ill person, if especially, the ill person cannot manage in the absence of the nursing person.
- For the traveler. This is based on the fact that the Prophet (saws) traveled and did not perform the Salatul Jumuah but only prayed the dhuhr and 'asr together during the time of the dhuhr prayers.
- Environmental restraints like extreme rain or cold, etc.
Your Question: When a Person is in travelling is jummah prayer is compulsory for him??
If one is traveling away from ones place of residence, the attendance of Jumuah prayer is not obligatory upon them in Shariah, but rather optional. If they attend the Jumuah prayer when traveling, they will receive a huge reward from their Lord; and if for any reason whatsoever they abstain from it, there is absolutely no sin upon them.
Your Question: .when is jummah prayer is compulsory for a person
To attend the Jumuah sermon and prayer in congregation is obligatory upon every free, sane, resident, adult male believer who has the ability to attend the salah and does not have an extremely valid excuse to miss it.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
