Going to the Jaami' Musjid for Jumu'ah Salaah

Q: Is it permissible to leave a small mosque and attend a big mosque on Friday while the small mosque is left empty. The small mosque has a capacity of 50-70 people.

A: It is best to perform the Jumuah Salaah at the Jaami` Musjid where all the town's people can congregate for Jumu`ah at the same time.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
