The likes of Imam Subuki, the most prominent scholar of the Shafi'i school of thought, have mentioned that there is a consensus (Ijma’) of Scholars that conducting two Jumu'ahs in one Masjid is not permissible. According to verse 09:62 of the Holy Qur’an, engaging in business activities at the time of Jumu'ah is prohibited. If two Jumu'ahs are conducted in one mosque, the public would be led to a confusion as to when they should abstain from engaging in business activities.

The conducting of two Jumu’ah prayers in one Masjid is not permissible according to the Sharee’ah and we are unaware of any basis for it in Islam. In actual fact, only one Jumu’ah should be conducted in a vicinity, and more than one Jumu’ah should not be conducted except under religious concessions; such as the Jumu’ah Masjid being too far for some of the attendees, constraint of space, or other reasons that serve as a justification for the establishment of the second Jumu’ah; in such circumstance a Jumu'ah could be conducted in another place that fulfils the conditions of establishing Jumu’ah.”
