Importance / Significance of Jumma (Jumma ki fazilat)

Importance / Significance of the day of Jumma (Jumma ki Fazilat, Fazail-e-Jumma)

Among all days of week the day of Jumma is considered the most important for every muslim, as on this day many important events took place and are going to take place.

If we read Quran in it there is a whole surah to describe the significance of Jumma day.

"O you who have believed, when [the adhan] is called for the prayer on the day of Jumu'ah [Friday], then proceed to the remembrance of Allah and leave trade. That is better for you, if you only knew." [Al-Quran 62:9]

Every muslim is advised to properly prepare for Jumma day and specially for Jumma prayer.

It is a day on which sins are forgiven, as narrated by Salmaan (Ra.) who narrated that the Prophet, (ﷺ) said:

    “Any man who performs Ghusl on Friday, perfumes himself if he has perfume, wears the best of his clothes, then goes to the mosque and offers as many prayers as he wishes while not harming anybody, then listens quietly while the Imaam speaks until he offers the prayer, will have all his sins between that Friday and the next forgiven.” [Al-Bukhaari].

It was narrated from Aws ibn Aws al-Thaqafi that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

        Whoever does Ghusl on Friday and causes (his wife) to do Ghusl, and sets out early, and comes close to the imam and listens and keeps quiet, for every step he takes he will have the reward of fasting and praying qiyaam for one year.” (al-Tirmidhi, 496)

All the important events of the world till now was recorded on the Jumma day and the most important event will also come on this day.

The Messenger of Allaah (ﷺ), said:

    “The best day the sun rises over is Friday; on it Allaah created Aadam. On it, he was made to enter paradise, on it he was expelled from it, and the Last Hour will take place on no other day than Friday.”[Ahmad and At-At-Tirmithi].

Jumma is the day on which ALLAH TAALA listen and approves all the prayers of a muslim.

The day of Jumu'ah includes an hour during which all supplications are accepted. Abu Hurayrah, narrated that the Messenger of Allaah (ﷺ) said:

    "On (the day of) Jumu'ah is an hour during which Allaah gives to a Muslim servant standing in prayer whatever he asks for.”[Al-Bukhaari and Muslim].

Please try to perform as many good deeds on the Jumma day as possible and ask ALLAH TAALA for forgiveness for your selves and for others specially your parents, brothers and sisters and all muslim ummah.

Please also pray for me and my family.

Thank You

Jaza kallah
