Importance of Friday during Ramazan

on Thursday, August 1, 2013

The sixth day of Islamic week is Friday, and this day is better than all the days. Our beloved Prophet Muhammad PBUH has described the virtues of Jumma (Friday) in these words:

“When the Friday comes, at every door of the Masjid there stands Angels who write down (the names of) those who come First, then who comes next. When, the Imam sits down, the records are closed and they come to listen to the reminder, i.e. the Khutba” Muslim.

There are five specialties of Friday, it is the birthday of Hazrat Adam A.S., He A.S was sent to the earth on Friday and Died on Friday. There is a moment in this day during which Allah doesn’t reject Dua’as and the Day of Judgment will be on this day.

Since Jummah is the best day among other weekdays and Ramazan is the best month among all other months of the year, so the importance of this day during this holy month is extraordinary and manifolds, 70 times more than the usual Fridays of the year. For example, if you recite the Holy Quran during Ramazan, you are rewarded with 700 good deeds against each letter, and if the day is Friday, then 70×700 and wait! If you have to struggle to recite, have difficulties in reading Arabic script then double again the total deeds.

A devotee’s whole life is one of Ibadat; even festivals are directed as worships. While there is no unique spot or uncommon time to pray to God, there are minutes, days, or times that God has made more unrivaled; Friday is one of the aforementioned times.

In many of the Muslim nations around the world, Friday is a weekly holiday, at times joined with either Thursday or Saturday. However, there is no compulsory shutting of organizations with the exception of throughout the time of the congregational prayers to God. In the Western nations, numerous Muslims attempt to enjoy their lunch reprieve throughout the time for prayers to God, for most parts in the exact early evening.

Friday is likewise the day on which one of the most stupendous verses in the Quran was revealed. According to (Quran 5):

“This day, I have idealized your religion for you, finished My Favor upon you, and have chosen Islam as your religion.”

A story from the life of the second Caliph Omar, represents the criticalness of Friday. An individual from around the Jews said to Omar Ibn Al Khattab “In the Quran you individuals read a certain verse; provided that that verse had been uncovered to us, we might have praised that day every twelve-months.” Omar asked, “Which verse is that?” The man answered, “This day, I have completed your religion for you’. Omar replied, “Verily, I remember the day and the place where this verse was revealed. It was now a twofold festival for us. Firstly, it was Friday-a day of Eid (festival) for all Muslims and also, it was the day of Arafat – the most significant day of the Hajj.” Omar added that this verse was revealed after Asr (evening supplication to God) while Prophet Muhammad was sitting on his camel.

This is decently noted and examined by Islamic researchers at various times. Thirteenth century Islamic researcher Ibn Taymiyyah said: “The most fabulous day of the week is Friday consistent with the agreement of researchers and his pupil Ibnul-Qayyim notice 32 extraordinary attributes of Friday in his book Zad Al-Ma’ad. Prophet Muhammad said, “Verily, this is the Eid (day of festival) that God has recommended for the Muslims”.

This is a day of gathering, a day of Festival, and a day of prayer and dua’a.
