Who can lead the prayer ?


Salamu alaikum.
I’m a young unmarried person. Sometimes for jama’ah prayer some brothers ask me to lead it. If we are a group of brothers, who leads the prayer ?


A`udhu billahi min ash-shaytan ir-rajeem
Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem

wa `alaykum salam,
The majority of Muslim Ulama‘ holds opinion that Jumah prayer should not be held in more than one masjid in one area unless there is a necessity. An adult Muslim who can say hamd (praising Allah swt) and Salawat on the Prophet (saws), can recite several verses from the Noble Qur’an and make some Du’a can be Imam to lead Jumah prayer.
