The following are Hadiths that show the importance of Friday.
“The person who has a bath on Friday, purifies himself as far as possible, applies oil to his hair, applies perfume, leaves for the masjid, when he arrives at the masjid, he does not sit down by removing anyone from his place, offers as many nafil salats as possible, when the Imam delivers the Khutbah he remains silent, then his sins fromthe previous Jumu’ah will be forgiven”. (Bukhari)…………………..culled from Youth Route
The Prophet (S.A.W.) said,” Friday is the master of days, and the greatest of them before Allah. It is greater before Allah than the day of al-Adha and the day of al-Fitr. It has five characteristics
– On this day Allah created Adam
– On it He sent Adam down to earth
– On it Allah caused Adam to die
– On it there is a time when a person does not ask Allah for anything but He gives it to him , so long as he does not ask for anything haraam
– On it the Hour will begin
There is no angel who is close to Allah, no heaven, no earth, no wind,no mountain and no sea that does not fear Friday.”
