  • Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “Friday is the best of days. It was on this day that Hadrat Aadam alayhis salaam was created, it was on this day that he was granted entry into jannah, it was on this day that he was removed from jannah (which became the cause for man’s existence in this universe, and which is a great blessing), and the day of resurrection will also take place on this day. ” (Sahih Muslim)

 

  • Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “There is such an hour on Friday that if any Muslim makes Dua in it, his Dua will definitely be accepted. ” (Bukhari, Muslim)

 

  • Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “Of all the days, Friday is the most virtuous. It is on this day that the trumpet will be blown. Send abundant Durood upon me on Fridays because they are presented to me on that day. ” The Sahabah  Radhiyallahu anhum asked: “O Rasulullah! How will they be presented to you when even your bones will not be present after your death?” Rasulullah (Allah bless him & give him peace) replied: “Allah Ta’ala has made the earth haraam upon the prophets forever . ” (Abu Dawood)

 

  • Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “The word “shaahid”refers to Friday . There is no day more virtuous than Friday. There is such an hour in this day that no Muslim will make dua in it except that his dua will be accepted. And he does not seek protection from anything except that Allah Ta’ala will grant him protection . ” (Tirmidhi)

 

  • Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “Friday is the “mother” of all days and the most virtuous in the sight of Allah Ta’ala. In the sight of Allah Ta’ala it has more greatness than Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Ad’haa. ” (Ibn Majah)

 

  • Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “The Muslim who passes away on the night or during the day of Friday, Allah Ta’ala saves him from the punishment of the grave . ” (Tirmidhi)

 

  • On one Friday, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “O Muslims! Allah Ta’ala has made this day a day of eid. So have a bath on this day, whoever has perfume should apply it, and use the miswaak.(Ibn Majah)

 

The Virtues and Importance of Jumu’ah Salaat

 

  • Rasulullah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said, “The person who has a bath on Friday, purifies himself as far as possible, applies oil to his hair, applies perfume, leaves for the Musjid, when he arrives at the Musjid he does not sit down by removing anyone from his place, offers as many Nafl salaatsas possible, when the imamdelivers the Khutbah he remains silent – then his sins from the previous Jumu’ah till now will be forgiven. ” (Bukhari)

 

  • Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “The person who has a bath on Friday and goes early to the Musjid  on foot, and not by a vehicle, listens to the Khutbah and does not do any foolish act while it is being delivered, will get the reward of one year’s Ibadah, one year’s fasting, and one year’s Salaat; for every step that he takes. ” (Tirmidhi)

 

  • Hadrat Ibn Umar and Abu Hurayrah Radhiyallahu Anhuma narrate that they heard Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying, “People should abstain from leaving out Jumu’ah Salaat. If not, Allah Ta’ala will put a seal over their hearts whereby they will fall into severe negligence. ” (Muslim)

 

  • Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “The person who misses out three jumu’ah’s without any valid reason, Allah Ta’ala puts a seal over his heart.” (Tirmidhi)

 

  • Ibn Abbas Radhiyallahu Anhu narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “The person who leaves out Jumu’ah Salaat without a valid reason is written down as a hypocrite in a book that is protected from any changes and modifications.” (Mishkaat)

In other words, he will be labelled as a hypocrite forever. However, if he repents or Allah forgives him solely out of His mercy, then this is another matter.
