Friday and Acts of Worship on Friday


Virtues of the Day of Friday


Jun 5, '09 12:10 PM




Narrated Abu Huraira:  I heard Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) saying, "We (Muslims) are the last (to come) but (will be) the foremost on the Day of Resurrection though the former nations were given the Holy Scriptures before us. And this was their day (Friday) the celebration of which was made compulsory for them but they differed about it. So Allah gave us the guidance for it (Friday) and all the other people are behind us in this respect: the Jews' (holy day is) tomorrow (i.e. Saturday) and the Christians' (is) the day after tomorrow (i.e. Sunday)." Bukhari :: Book 2 :: Volume 13 :: Hadith 1



Worships of Friday Virtues of the Day of Friday Day


Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three types of people attend Friday prayer; One is present in a frivolous way and that is all he gets from it; another comes with a supplication, Allah may grant or refuse his r equest as He wishes; another is present silently and quietly with-out stepping over a Muslim or annoying anyone, and that is an atonement for his sins till the next Friday and three days more, the reason being that Allah, the Exalted, says: "He who does a good deed will have ten times as much" (vi.160). Dawud :: Book 3 : Hadith 1108


The Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said: ((Do not fast the day of Jumu'ah (Friday), unless you fast a day before it (also) or the day after it (also))), [The al-Bukhaaree and Muslim]


In his Mustadrak, Al-Hakim recorded from Abu Sa`id that the Prophet said: (Whoever recites Surat Al-Kahf on Friday, it will illuminate him with light from one Friday to the next.) [Sahih chain]


Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) talked about Friday and said, "There is an hour (opportune time) on Friday and if a Muslim gets it while praying and asks something from Allah, then Allah will definitely meet his demand." And he (the Prophet) pointed out the shortness of that time with his hands. Bukhari :: Book 2 :: Volume 13 :: Hadith 57


Narrated Salman Al-Farsi: Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, "Anyone who takes a bath on Friday and cleans himself as much as he can and puts oil (on his hair) or scents himself; and then proceeds for the prayer and does not force his way between two persons (assembled in the mosque for the Friday prayer), and prays as much as is written for him and remains quiet when the Imam delivers the Khutba, all his sins in between the present and the last Friday will be forgiven." Bukhari :: Book 2 :: Volume 13 :: Hadith 33


The Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Surely, among the best of your days is Friday; so increase in (invoking Allaah’s) Salaat (1) upon me during it, for your (invocations for Allaah’s) Salaat (upon me) will be displayed to me.” So they (the companions, radiyallaahu ‘ahnum) asked: “O Messenger of Allah! How will our (invocation for Allaah’s) Salaat (upon you) be displayed to you when you have disintegrated (i.e. your body turned to dust in the grave)?” He replied, “Verily, Allaah tabaaraka wa ta’aalaa has made forbidden for the earth (the consumption of) the bodies of the Prophets – may Allaah’s Salaat be upon them.” (2) Saheeh Abee Daawood, #1531. 


Narrated Abu Huraira:  Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, "Any person who takes a bath on Friday like the bath of Janaba and then goes for the prayer (in the first hour i.e. early), it is as if he had sacrificed a camel (in Allah's cause); and whoever goes in the second hour it is as if he had sacrificed a cow; and whoever goes in the third hour, then it is as if he had sacrificed a horned ram; and if one goes in the fourth hour, then it is as if he had sacrificed a hen; and whoever goes in the fifth hour then it is as if he had offered an egg. When the Imam comes out (i.e. starts delivering the Khutba), the angels present themselves to listen to the Khutba." Bukhari :: Book 2 :: Volume 13 :: Hadith 6


Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet used to recite the following in the Fajr prayer of Friday, "Alif, Lam, Mim, Tanzil" (Surat-as-Sajda #32) and "Hal-ata-ala-l-Insani" (i.e. Surah-Ad-Dahr #76).  Bukhari :: Book 2 :: Volume 13 :: Hadith 16


Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:  A person entered the mosque while the Prophet was delivering the Khutba on a Friday. The Prophet said to him, "Have you prayed?" The man replied in the negative. The Prophet said, "Get up and pray two Rakat." Bukhari :: Book 2 :: Volume 13 :: Hadith 52


Details of Friday Prayer


Details of Friday prayer: from the class of Shaykh Saleh as Saleh on the book: Important lessons for the Ummah


-          This salah is binding on those on whom the Jama’ah prayer is binding

-          those who resides in town


-          it should be done on time


-          for the residence it is binding


-          this prayer is preceded by 2 khutbahs as the prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam did this way


-          it is considered as Jama’ah as long as there are 3 legally responsible men are present, the requirement of 40 men is not correct because the hadith is weak


-          the people who are excused from this prayer are: women, those who are ill and those who have legal excuse so they pray 4 rakah of Zuhr prayer,


-          it is bidah to do 4 rakah of Zuhr prayer after the Jumu’ah prayer


-          this prayer is 2 rakah and Imam leads this prayer reciting loudly in it


-          it is sunnah to recite these surah in it: surah 62, 63, 87, and 88


-          in the khutbah the Imam should remind, admonish and teach people their religion, and address some of the issues that needs to be address but not making long. The khutbahs should be short, and it shouldn’t be taken to spread political agenda and motives.


-          It is from the sign of Imam’s hikma that he shortens the khutbah and lengthens the prayer.


-          It is praise worthy to come to this prayer early, taking bath, putting on perfume, and also nice clothes because it is weekly Eid as came in sahih hadith about its marits


-          There is no sunnah at the beginning of this prayer, rather one does as much as one able to, then sit to recite Qur’an, or make dhikr until the Imam comes to start


-          There are 4 rakah of Sunnah if one prays in the masjid and there are 2 rakah if one prays in the house, as came in ahadeeth.
