Recommended Things Regarding Friday Prayer (Salat) ~ Hi all readers! In some of the previous articles, I have explained many important things about Friday prayer, such as the law of speaking when the Imam is preaching, performing Friday prayers and Eid prayers on the same day, and so forth. Of course, those are some important things that we should know about. And, in this article, I will explain one more important thing related to Friday prayer. One important thing I mean is that there are a number of things that are recommended to people who are going to perform Friday prayer.
As one of the obligations for Muslims, especially Muslim men, there are some important things they should do before they do Friday prayer. Why is that? Of course, the answer is because it will all add to the quality of Friday prayer they do. In other words, if they do that, then they will get more reward than if they did not do it all.
Now, by the way, do you know what things are recommended to Muslim men before they do Friday prayer? If you don’t know yet, don’t worry! I will explain it all briefly and clearly.
If we read the explanation of Islamic legal experts about Friday prayers, then we will find an explanation that there are five things that are recommended to Muslim men before they do Friday prayer. These five things are as follows;
First; shower, wear neat clothes, and perfume.
I need to explain here, that the time for bathing to perform Friday prayers is to start the morning and before the Friday prayer. But the best time to do that is right before a Muslim goes to the mosque for Friday prayer. Likewise, by wearing neat clothes and perfume. As for clothing, a Muslim who is going to perform Friday prayer is recommended to wear white.
Second; say “Takbir” with a calm and soft voice when leaving for the mosque.
Third; clean and neat the body, like cutting nails if it’s long and so on.
Fourth; perform sunnah prayer until two rak’ahs after Friday prayer.
Fifth; recite surah al-Fatihah, surah al-Ikhlas, and surah al-Muawidzataini (al-Falaq and an-Nas) after finishing Friday prayer.
All Readers! That is a brief explanation of recommended things regarding Friday prayer (salat). Do you understand? If you want to ask, please ask!
