Significance of friday

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Abu Hurairah reports that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "The best day on which the sun rises is Friday. [On Friday] Adam was created, and on that day he entered Paradise, and on that day he was expelled from Paradise. And the Hour will come to pass on Friday."

Related by Muslim, Abu Dawud, an-Nasa'i, and at-Tirmidhi.


Abu Hurairah reports that one Friday the Prophet (saws) said: "O gathering of Muslims, Allah has made this day (of Friday) an Eid for you, so make ghusl and use the miswak (on this day)."

Abu Sa'id reports that the Prophet (saws) said: "Every Muslim should have a ghusl on Friday and wear his best clothing, and if he has perfume, he should use it."

Related by Ahmad, al-Bukhari, and Muslim.


Abu Lubanah al-Badri relates that the Prophet (saws) said: "The most prominent (or leader) of the days is the day of Jumu'ah and the most honored in Allah's sight, and it is more honored in Allah's sight than the day of breaking the fast, or the day of sacrifice. It has five significant merits: Allah created Adam on this day; on this day Allah sent Adam down to the earth; on this day Allah caused Adam to die; on this day, there is a time during which if anyone asks anything of Allah it will be granted to him unless he asks for something which is forbidden; and on this day, the Hour will be established. There are no Angels close to Allah or the sky or the earth or the wind or the mountain or the sea who are not worried concerning the day of Jumu'ah."

Related by Ahmad and Ibn Majah.


There is absolutely no denying the importance of the day of Jumua (Friday) in the sight of Allah Subhanah. It is the most prominent day of the week, and the Lord Most Merciful has made this day of Friday a day of Eid for the believers. But there is absolutely no evidence in the authentic and establsihed Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) or in the traditions of his noble companions whereby they would greet each other and congratulate one another on the advent of the day of Friday as they would do on the advent of Ramadan, or the advent of the Days of the two Eids. Thus it does not behove the believers in Allah and the Last Day to start an innovation by making it a habit or a ritual of wishing and greeting each other more than normal on the advent of each Friday!


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
