Praying Zuhr in congregation for those who missed Salaat al-Jumu’ah

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
In the name of Allah, Most Kind Most Merciful
All praise is for Allah, peace and blessings be upon Muhammed (saalahu alayhi wa sallam)to proceed :
My question is this :
We hold jummah (Friday) prayer at university. A group of brothers came late and they missed the prayer. They decided to pray Dhur as the jummah prayer has been done. The question was do they dhur together in Jammah (congregation) or do they pray Dhur individually. Please advise me with proofs.
Jazakallah Khair

Praise be to Allaah.

You should urge the brothers around you to attend Salaat al-Jumu’ah (Friday prayers) at the right time, because Jumu’ah is of great importance. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Let people stop neglecting to attend Jumu’ah, or else Allaah will seal their hearts, then they will be among the heedless.”

(Reported by Muslim, 1432)

He (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also said: “Whoever neglects Salaat al-Jumu’ah three times with no good reason, Allaah will put a seal on his heart.”

(Reported by al-Tirmidhi, 460; he said: this is a hasan hadeeth).

As for the people who missed Jumu’ah, they should pray Zuhr, and there is nothing wrong with praying it in jamaa’ah (congregation). And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
