The Blessings of Friday


1.  Friday is the best of days.  The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him said,

‏خَيْرُ يَوْمٍ طَلَعَتْ عَلَيْهِ الشَّمْسُ يَوْمُ الْجُمُعَةِ فِيهِ خُلِقَ ‏‏ آدَمُ ‏ ‏وَفِيهِ أُدْخِلَ الْجَنَّةَ وَفِيهِ أُخْرِجَ مِنْهَ

"Friday is the best of days. It was on this day that Prophet Adam was created, it was on this day that he was granted entry into Paradise, it was on this day that he was removed from Paradise (which became the cause for man's existence in this universe, and which is a great blessing)" (Sahih Muslim)

2.  On Friday is a blessed hour in which supplications are sure to be accepted.  The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said,

(فِي الْجُمُعَةِ سَاعَةٌ لَا يُوَافِقُهَا عَبْدٌ مُسْلِمٌ قَائِمٌ ‏ ‏يُصَلِّي فَسَأَلَ اللَّهَ خَيْرًا إِلَّا أَعْطَاهُ) [البخاري]

"There is such an hour on Friday that if any Muslim prays, and then asks Allah for some good in it, his supplication will surely be accepted."

3.  It is a smaller 'Eid' (day of celebration) as the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said,

(‏إِنَّ هَذَا يَوْمُ عِيدٍ جَعَلَهُ اللَّهُ لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ فَمَنْ جَاءَ إِلَى الْجُمُعَةِ فَلْيَغْتَسِلْ...) [ابن ماجه

"Indeed this day is an Eid that Allah made for the Muslims; so whoever among you comes upon Friday should wash themselves (perform ghusl)...."

4.  It is a virtuous day on which to die; the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

(‏مَا مِنْ مُسْلِمٍ يَمُوتُ يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ أَوْ لَيْلَةَ الْجُمُعَةِ إِلَّا وَقَاهُ اللَّهُ فِتْنَةَ الْقَبْرِ) [أحمد والترمذي]

"No Muslim passes away on the day or night of Jumu'ah except Allah protects them from the punishment of the grave"

Happy & Blessed Friday! :)
