Jummah is a congregational petition (ṣalāt) that Muslims hold each Friday, soon after twelve rather than the Zuhr petition. Muslims supplicate usually five times every day as per the sun’s skyway paying little mind to time zones.

1. Cutting Nails

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be satisfied with him) reported that ‘Five are the demonstrations of fitra (normal slant): 1) circumcision, 2) evacuating the hair underneath the navel, 3) trimming the mustache, 4) trimming the nails, and 5) culling the hair under the arms.’

2. Reading Surah Al-Kahf

It was described from Abu Sa’eed al-Khduri that the Prophet (Sallallahu ályhi Wa Sallam) said: “Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on Friday, he will be illuminated with light between the two Fridays.” (Narrated by al-Haakim; classed as Saheeh by al-Albaani)

3. Making Dua

Don’t MISS The Golden Opportunity !!

“There is a special hour on Friday, during which all prayers are accepted and answered by Allah, all Glory and Praise be to Him. This is part of the blessings that Allah has blessed this day with, over all the other days of the week.“On this day there is a time when no Muslim stands and prays, asking Allah for something, but Allah will grant him it” – and he gestured with his hands to indicate how short that time is. [Bukhari 893 Muslim, 852]

It was described from Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) specified Friday and said: “On this day there is a time when no Muslim stands and prays, asking Allah for something, but Allah will grant him it” – and he gestured with his hands to indicate how short that time is. [Bukhari 893 Muslim, 852]

Ibn Al-Qayyim (Rahim Ullah) said with regards to the correct hour of Friday amid which this happens is after the Asr petition until the Maghrib supplication in view of the accompanying hadith: “Friday has twelve hours (or part of it). There is one hour during which if a Muslim asks Allah anything, Allah will give it to him, so find it during the last hour after Asr.” {Abu Dawud & An-Nasai}

4. Taking Bath (Ghusl)

Washing up and refine oneself totally by watching Ghusl (great bathing). Described by Abdullah canister Umar (R.A) said:

“I heard the Messenger of Allah, PBUH says: ‘When one of you wants to come to Jumu’ah, let him perform Ghusl.” (Muslim)

Along these lines, the considerable estimation of Friday is apparent from the previously mentioned Hadith, that other than general bathing, one likewise needs to do greater bathing while showering.

5. Wearing clean clothes, doing miswaak (brushing teeth) and applying perfume (nonalcoholic scent)

Keep in mind that day you had that huge occasion and you invested hours in the restroom cleaning all aspects of your body and putting each kind of scent on? That is precisely how you ought to get ready for Jumuah! Wash up, ensure you play out the Sunan Al-Fitra from trimming nails, expelling hair from armpits and evacuating pubic hair, putting heaps of scent, and so on. Ensure your Jumuah thobe or garments are perfect, spotless and squeezed and not something you wore 2 days prior and is recolored or folded! Additionally, take extraordinary care of oral cleanliness: spend the suggested 4 minutes brushing your teeth, utilize liquor-free mouthwash, miswak/siwak… fundamentally, get squeaky clean!

Described Abu Sa’id Al-Khudr: I testify that Allah’s Messenger (Peace and blessings be upon him) said, ‘The taking of a bath on Friday is compulsory for every Muslim who has attained the age of puberty and also cleaning of teeth with Siwak and using perfume, if available’. [Translation of Sahih Bukhari]

6. Going Mosque Early

No, I don’t mean 10 minutes before the Khateeb enters the masjid, yet truly early – like two or three hours and attempt to go there strolling rather if the masjid isn’t too far. Attempt to be the first there and recollect this hadeeth:

Described Abu Hurairah: Allah’s Messenger (Peace and endowments be upon him) said,’ When it is Jumuah, the Angels stand at the gate of the masjid and keep on writing the names of the persons coming to the masjid in succession according to their arrivals. The example of the one who enters the masjid in the earliest hour is that of one offering a camel (in sacrifice); the one coming next is like one offering a cow, and then a ram; and then a chicken; and then an egg respectively. When the Imam comes out (for Jumu’ah sermon) they (i.e. Angels) fold their papers and listen to the sermon. [Translation of Sahih Al-Bukhari]”

7. Friday Prayer

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “O you who believe (Muslims)! When the call is proclaimed for the Salaah (prayer) on Friday (Jumu‘ah prayer), come to the remembrance of Allaah [Jumu‘ah religious talk (Khutbah) and Salaah (prayer)] and leave off business (and every other thing). That is better for you if you did but know!” [al-Jumu’ah 62:9]

8. Sending a lot of blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

It was narrated from Aws ibn Aws that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The best of your days is Friday. On that day Adam (peace be upon him) was created; on that day he died; on that day the Trumpet will be blown, and on that day all of the creation will swoon. So send a lot of blessings upon me, for your blessings will be shown to me.” They said, “O Messenger of Allaah, how will our blessings upon you be shown to you when you have turned to dust?” He said, “Allaah has forbidden the earth to consume the bodies of the Prophets, peace be upon them.”

Narrated by Abu Dawood, 1047; classed as Saheeh by Ibn al-Qayyim in his comments on Sunan Abi Dawood, 4/273; classed as Saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood, 925.

9. Walking to the Mosque

Strolling towards the mosque, as it results in the achievement of gifts on one stage and pardoning of sins on another. Abu Hurairah (R.A) portrayed Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) talking as:

He who purifies (performs Wudu’) himself in his house and then walks to one of the houses of Allah (mosque) for performing an obligatory Salat, one step of his will wipe out his sins and another step will elevate his rank (in Jannah).” (Muslim)

10. Listening carefully to Jummah Khutba (Sermon)

“Whoever says to his friend while Imam is delivering Khutbah on Friday “keep quiet” also commit an absurdity.” (Muslim and Bukhari)
