Sometimes we get asked why Friday is important in Islam and we can only answer with a blank face. But after reading this compliation of ahadith, InshAllah you will know some of the jewels of Jummah.


1) The Prophet (saw) said, “The best day on which the sun has ever risen is Friday; on that day, Adam was created, he was admitted to Paradise, and he was expelled from there.” He has also said, “Among the best of your days is Friday. On that day, invoke blessings on me frequently, for your blessings are presented to me.” – Sahih Muslim


2) Rasul-Allah (SAW) said, “The Sun does not rise nor set on a day that is better than Friday, and there is no creature that is not scared of Friday except for humans and jinns.” They are afraid because Judgment Day will be on a Friday.


3) Narrated Abu Hurairah: The Prophet (SAW) said, “There is a time on Friday at which a Muslim, while he is offering Salat and is supplicating, will be granted whatever he is asking for.” He indicated with his hands that this period of time is very short – Sahih Bukhari (some say this time is from when the Imam leading the Friday prayer enters the masjid until the salah is over, some say it is the last hour of the day, that being after Asr and before Maghrib, but it is unknown. This should encourage us to make efforts in worship throughout the day.


4) “On Fridays, angels will be sent to the doors of the Masjid to write down the names of the people who enter the Masjid. When the Imam goes to the pulpit, they close their books, put down their pens, and start asking each other: ‘what has kept so and so from coming to Juma’ah?’ They then pray: ‘Oh Allah, if so and so is misguided, please guide him, and if he is sick, please cure him, and if he is needy, please enrich him.’” – Sahih Bukhari 


5) Rasulullah (Allah bless him & give him peace) 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) The word “shaahid” appears in Surah Burooj . Allah Ta’ala has taken an oath of that day. He says in the Quran:

“By the sky in which there are constellations .By the promised day (of judgement). By the day that witnesses (Friday), and the day that is witnessed (day of Arafah). “


6) Rasulullah (Allah bless him & give him peace) 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)


7) Rasulullah (Allah bless him & give him peace) 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)
