Dua on Friday most acceptable
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.
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.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 62 Surah Jumua verses 9-10:
9 O ye who believe! When the call is proclaimed to prayer on Friday (the Day of Assembly) hasten earnestly to the Remembrance of Allah and leave off business (and traffic): that is best for you if ye but knew!
10 And when the Prayer is finished then may ye disperse through the land and seek of the Bounty of Allah: and celebrate the Praises of Allah often (and without stint): that ye may prosper.
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

Your Question: .Please tell me Is that any hadith which tells us on Friday supplications is most acceptable.
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.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) narrated in Truth that there is a specific time on the blessed Day of Friday during which if anyone asks anything lawful from Allah, it would be granted to thembut just like the Messenger of Allah (saws) did not specify the exact night of Layla tul Qadr of Ramadan, he (saws) did not specify this exact period of time on the Day of Friday when supplications are not rejectedand the wisdom behind not specifying the exact time is so that the believers would honor the whole day of Jumuah and engage themselves in the worship of Allah Subhanah, rather than just that specific period of time. And Allah Alone Knows Best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
