Store being open at Jumuah time




One brother who has a food business is asking:
“Should he close his business during Jumuah or can he leave his wife or a non- muslim to sell the lunch time food – while he attends Jumuah?”
He attends Jumuah but will receive the income from the sales during the Jumuah period.
The issue is in the part of the ayah: وَذَرُواْ ٱلۡبَيۡعَ. One Mufti deems the income earned during Jumuah to be tainted.
What is the preferred opinion of the Hanafi madhhab?Is this the position even if he is the OWNER of the business?
Sorry to be-labour the point
