Our Dear Juma'ah

10 juillet 2010

Peace be upon you

As Christians were given their Sunday and Jews their Sabbath (Saturday), we Muslims have our Juma'ah (Friday). SoubhanAllah, Allah has given every community its own ability and even a special mecial day for us to double our profits for the hereafter. Sadly, a loonggggg time ago in Judaism and Christianity people started misusing that day and diverted from Allah al-Wahid.

This diversion of the communities before us should be a lesson to us so that we would not make the same mistakes again. Sadly enough today in certain places Friday is a working day so people tend (and really really tend) to forget the virtues and sunnah of Fridays. Even sadder, Fridays become the more and more limited to men for the Friday prayers...limited only to men? La la (No no) ! Juma'ah is for EVERYONE!

Here are some sunnah that we could try to apply to our weekly friday routine (both men and women):

1. Increase our salutations to our beloved Prophet PBUH

"The Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said: Frequently send salutations to me on Friday during the day and night. Whoever sends one salutation to me, Allah will send ten to him.”

Collected by Al-Bayhaqi in his Sunnan.Shaykh Al-Albani graded this hadeeth as being Hasan in Saheehah 1407

2. Recite surah al-Kahf

"Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah, will have a light that will shine from him from one Friday to the next."

Narrated by al-Haakim,


4. Perfume (for men) + wearing fine clothes

“Whoever takes a bath on Friday, puts on perfume if he has some, wears his best clothes then goes out, walking in a dignified manner until he reaches the mosque, then he prostrates in prayer if he wants and does not disturb anybody, then he remains quiet until the imaam comes out and he prays, that will be an expiation from one Friday to the next.”


5. Siwak

The Prophet (pbuh) recommended to use the siwak on Friday, before Friday prayers


6. Make du'a

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “There is such an hour on Friday that if any Muslim makes dua in it, his dua will definitely be accepted”


Well that'll do for now! There's a whole list especially concerning the virtues of the khutbah and prayers of Friday.

Nevertheless, from the hadeeth stated above Friday is certainly a day of purification of the body (cleansing) and the soul (khutbah, du'a..).

Let's follow the steps of Muhammad PBUH!
May ALLAH guide us all.

'Allah has given every community its own ability and even a special mecial day for us to double our profits for the hereafter.'

the way u are saying n i could understand is that allah had given every religion their own special day for everyone to do the ibadah as bekalan for akhirat.
we know islam is the only true religion bt y are u saying like other religions are also true as long as we do the ibadah to god?

Dear Anonyme,

I'm really sorry for the late reply and I'm sorry about the entry. I did not express myself well enough..(very dangerous indeed!) I'll try to be more careful next time.

What I wanted to say was that the Jews and the Christians HAD BEEN GIVEN their day of worship but sadly misused that day (like the story of the monkeys of Sabbath) and then diverted from the true religion.

I hope I manage to express properly this time. I'll correct that in the entry.

Thanks a lot for the remark!

May He blesses your every move.

Tun Fatimah

The Wayfarers

We are the wayfarers
We are the travelers
Wondering through
The planet earth
And see how great
The Creator is

We are the wayfarers
We are the travelers
Don’t you ever think
How strange it is
To treat everything
As tough as it’s ours
