Malik (RA) said,

"If the imam stops off on a journey in a town where Jummah is obligatory and he gives a khutba and takes the Jummah prayer for them, then the people of the town and any other people present do the Jummah prayer with him." Malik said, "If the imam gathers people for prayer while he is travelling in a town where the Jummah prayer is not obligatory, then there is no Jummah for him, nor for the people of the town, nor for anyone else who joins them for the prayer in congregation, and the people of the town and anyone else who is not travelling should complete the prayer." Malik added, "A traveller does not have to do Jummah"
