Jummah, also known as Friday prayer ,is a congregational prayer that Muslims hold every Friday around noontime. It is mentioned in the Qur’an as:

 

O you who believe! when the call is made for prayer on Friday, then hasten to the remembrance of Allah and leave off trading; that is better for you, if you know. And when the prayer is ended, then disperse in the land and seek of Allah’s bounty, and remember Allah much, that you may be successful.

In addition, from Prophetic narrations we find that “If a person walks to Jummah prayer, for every step, he will have the reward of fasting and standing in praying for one year.” We know from other traditions that “Friday is the master of days and the greatest of them before Allah”. Therefore a Muslim should endeavor to make this day, special.

 

Friday has a blessed moment in which supplications are answered, The Prophet of Allah said “There is such an hour on Friday that if any Muslim supplicates in it, his supplication will definitely be accepted.” The Prophet of Allah said: “Friday is the “mother” of all days and the most virtuous in the sight of Allah Most High. In the sight of Allah Most High it has more greatness than Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Ad’ha.”

 

This makes it imperative Muslims to celebrate the favor’s of Allah and ensure that we benefit ourselves and those around us, even more than usual on this particular day.

 

The Prophet of Allah said “The Friday Congregational Prayer is obligatory for every Muslim, except the slave, the woman, the child and the sick”. The Friday sermon plays a key role in the prayer, which allows the Imam to tackle key concerns but also to ensure the Muslim community be reminded of the message of our Lord. The congregation allows interaction with fellow Muslims, discussion of ideas and thoughts and the strengthening of ties between communities.

 

An important practice is the abundant recitation of salutations upon the noble Prophet of Allahas this strengthens our love and connection with him and most importantly enables us to receive the glad tidings of being close to him on the Day of Judgment.
