Morals Pertaining To Friday And Its Prayers.


Imaam Ibn Qudaamah Al-Maqdisi rahimahullaah said:

We will mention about Fifteen morals that one is required to observe on Friday.

♦ To prepare himself for the Friday prayers since Thursday and Friday night by cleaning his body and washing clothes and implementing other purification.

♦ To perform Ghusl on Friday as it is recommended in the Assahihayni and other Ahaadith and it is preferred to be done immediately before going to the mosque to offer Friday prayer.

♦ To beautify himself by using clean cloth, clipping the fingernails, using the tooth-stick and putting perfume etc.

♦ To walk and go early to the Jumu’ah Mosque. One should try to walk to the mosque with calmness and humility and to intend to observe Itikaf.

♦ To avoid stepping over people’s necks in the mosque.

♦ To avoid walking in front of the worshippers.

♦ To pray in the the first row.

♦ To stop praying nawaafil and any form of Zikr when the Imaam is already on the munbar and to busy with repeating the adhan behind the Muazzin, and to listen attentively to the khutbah of the Imaam.

♦ To offer supererogatory prayer after the jum’ah either two, four, or six raka’at.

10. To stay in the mosque until the Asr prayer and it is preferable for one to stay till the time of magrib prayer.

♦ To seize the honorable Hour on jumu’ah by devotion and making a lot of zikr. There are different opinions of ulama regarding the exact time of this Hour.

Some ulamaa opined that it is between the time the Imaam sits down and the end of the prayer based on the Hadith transmitted by Muslim in his ‘sahih’ which is reported from Abu Musa radiyallaahu anhu(I.e Hadith 853).

While other ulamaa held the opinion that it is between when the Imaam finishes Khutbah and the end of the prayer based on the hadith transmitted by Imaam At-Timidhi in his ‘Sunan#488.

In addition, other ulamaa have held the opinion that it is the last hour after the Asr prayer, based on a Hadith reported by Jabir radiyallaahu anhu which is narrated in the ‘Sunanof At-Tirmidhi #1698.

Moreover, Anas radiyallaahu anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah salallaahu alayhi wasallam said:

“Seek it between Asr prayer till sunset.”

Transmitted and recorded by Imaan At-Timidhi in hisSunan#487.

Abubakar Al-Athram rahimahullahu said:

“All the aforementioned Ahaadith can be understood in two ways; is either one hadith is more authentic compare to the other or the exact hour may move between the above- mentioned times the way lailatu Al-qadri used to move in the last ten days of Ramadan”

♦ To invoke Allah to send blessings upon His Messenger salallaahu alayhi wasallam on this day and to also pray for forgiveness.

♦ To recite Suratu Al-Kahf.

In a Hadith, it is reported from Abu Sa’id Al-khudri radiyallaahu anhu who said-The Messenger of Allah salallaahu alayhi wasallam said:

“Whosoever recites Surat Al-kahf on the day of Jumu’ah will have illumination from the light from one jumu’ah to the next Jumu’ah.”

Transmitted and recorded by Imaam An-Nasaa’i in hisSunan‘.

♦ To make a lot of sadaqah to those that are in need.

♦ To occupy most of the times on jumu’ah with the acts of the Hereafter and shunning away from the dunya and its amusement.
