Superiority Of Friday In Islam

Friday or ‘Jumuah’ is the most profoundly respected day in the whole week, in Islam. Having its origins in Arabic, the word means ‘gathering’ or ‘congregation’.

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) termed Friday as the king of all other days; the most respected one in the eyes of Almighty Allah, to the point of being higher in value than Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Azha. This day has five specialties which make it superior in comparison with other days which are:

1. Allah created Adam (PBUH) on this day

2. Adam (PBUH) was sent to the earth on Jumuah

3. Prophet Adam died on Jumah

4. There is a time in which anything humbly prayed for, beside illegitimate stuff is provided by Creator.

5. The day of judgement will occur, which is feared by all angels; anyone in the land, sea or mountains.

Allah linked a whole chapter in Holy Quran named ‘Sura Jumah’ with Friday. The last three verses are specifically linked with Jumah prayers which stress that all business be left aside and Jumah prayers be attended and when it’s over, then all of the creation spread throughout in the land in search of food.

When it’s time to offer Jumma prayers, Muslims should leave behind all necessary; unnecessary type of work including business, study or any other worldly matters as it is stated in another Hadith that if a believer leaves three consecutive Jummah prayers, without no credible reason, it will lead to him being strayed from the true path of Islam.

Another Hadith of the Prophet (PBUH) signifies the importance of Jumah, summary of which is as follows: Anyone who bathes, applies oil and perfume in his ownership, offers prayers as much as he can, does not speak during the Juma sermon, his sins between two consecutive Jumah-tul-Mubaraks are forgiven.

A hadith related to this reaffirms the importance, the Messenger of Allah said,

“The five daily prayers, and from one Friday prayer till the next, serves as an expiation for whatever sins have been committed between them, provided one does not commit any major sin”

It is highly stressed upon Muslims to recite durood on the Prophet, since it is presented directly to him. Also, it is highly recommended to recite Surah Kahf on Friday to keep yourself safe from the fitnah of Dajjal, near judgement day.

So, it can be easily deciphered from all the above what importance Jummah holds in Islam. You can bag the virtues of Jumma tul Vida in Makkah, with Ramadan Umrah packages, for the last 15 days, or the last Ashra to gather as many virtues as possible.
