Friday’s Features According to Islam

Islamic Law On Website: Friday’s features ~ Hi all readers! Friday is a good day for Muslims. It has many features that other days do not have. By the way, what’s the specialty? You don’t know yet? Don’t worry, in this article I will explain it.

As usual, before I explain the theme of this article further, I will quote two hadiths that are specifically related to our discussion. The two hadiths I mean are as follows;

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ذَكَرَ يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ فَقَالَ : فِيْهِ سَاعَةٌ لَا يُوَافِقُهَا عَبْدٌ مُسْلِمٌ وَهُوَ قَائِمٌ يُصَلِّي يَسْأَلُ اللهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ شَيْئًا إِلَّا أَعْطَاهُ إِيَّاهُ , وَأَشَارَ بِيَدِهِ يُقَلِّلُهَا . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ

From Abu Hurairah radliyallahu ‘anhu, that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam once mentioned Friday. He then said, “In it there is a time that is not met by a Muslim servant when he stands for prayer, then he asks something from Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla, unless Allah gives him what he asks.” He then gestured with the burden and reduce it.” The hadith is narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

عَنْ سَمْرَةَ بْنِ جَنْدَبٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا : أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ كَانَ يَسْتَغْفِرُ لِلْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ كُلَّ جُمُعَةٍ . رَوَاهُ الْبَزَّارُ

From Samrah bin Jandab radliyallahu ‘anhuma, “That Prophet (Muhammad) sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam asked forgiveness for all men who believe and all women who believe.” The hadith was narrated by al-Bazzar.

There are some important things related to the two hadiths above that we need to know;

  1. The first hadith explains about the privilege of Friday, that in it there is a very good time if used to pray, because the prayer of the time must be accepted.
  2. The first hadith specifically explains the best time of Friday; the time between the priest sitting on the minbar until he finishes the prayer.
  3. The second hadith explains that every Friday the Prophet Muhammad prayed for all believers, both men and women.
  4. The second hadith explains that Muslims are encouraged to pray for other Muslims.

All Readers! That is a brief explanation of Friday’s features according to Islam. If you want to ask, please ask!
