    Significance of Friday

    From Islam Q&A (www.islam-qa.com)

    Question:
    Which day of the week do you consider most holy and your sabboth?


    Answer:
    Praise be to Allaah.

    It should be noted that the entire life of a Muslim is worship of Allaah; there is no special day for worship, for the Muslim is worshipping Allaah all the time. But there is a day which Allaah has made special
    for this ummah (nation), the nation of Muhammad (peace and blessings of
    Allaah be upon him), and which Allaah has favoured above all the other days of the week. That day is Friday. There are a number of hadeeths
    which speak of the virtue of this day, including
    the following:

    It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: The Messenger of Allaah (salla
    llahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "We (Muslims) are the last (of the
    nations) but (we will be) the foremost on the Day of Resurrection, although
    the former nations were given their scriptures before us and we were
    given our after them. And this (Friday) is the day concerning which they
    disputed. So Allaah guided
    us (to it), tomorrow (i.e., Saturday) is for the Jews and the day after
    (i.e., Sunday) is for the Christians." (Narrated by al-Bukhaari,
    al-Jumu'ah, 847).

    It was also narrated (by al-Bukhaari) that the Messenger of Allaah
    (salla llahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "The best day on which the sun rises
    is Friday. On this day Adam was created, on this day he entered Paradise
    and on this day he was expelled from it." (Narrated by Muslim,
    al-Jumu'ah, 1410)

    It was narrated that Taariq ibn Shihaab said: "A Jewish man said to
    `Umar, `O Commander of the faithful, if this aayah `This day, I have
    perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have
    chosen for you Islam as your religion' [al-Maa'idah 5:3 interpretation
    of the meaning] had been revealed to us, we would have taken that day
    as an `Eid (festival)." `Umar said, "I know on which day this aayah was
    revealed; it was revealed on the Day
    of `Arafaah, which was a Friday." (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, Al-I'tisaam
    bi'l-Kitaab wa'l-Sunnah, 6726).

    Among the hadeeth which explain the reward for this day is that which
    was narrated by Abu Hurayrah, which says that the Messenger of Allaah
    (salla llahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "Each of the five daily prayers and
    from one Jumu'ah prayer to the next is an expiation for the time in
    between, so long as one does not commit any major sin." (al-Tahaarah,
    342).

    It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: "The Messenger of Allaah (salla
    llahu alayhi wa sallam) said: `When Friday comes, at each door of the
    mosque there are angels who write down the first ones to come to the
    mosque. Then when the imaam sits down they close their books and come to
    listen to the sermon. The one who comes early (for Friday prayer) is
    like who sacrificed a camel, then those who come after him (in order of
    their coming) are like one who sacrificed
    a cow, then one who sacrificed a horned ram, then one who sacrificed a
    chicken, then like one who offered an egg." (narrated by al-Bukhaari,
    al-Jumu'ah, 1416).

    It was also narrated in a hadeeth that the Prophet (salla llahu alayhi
    wa sallam) said: "One of the best of your days is Friday. On it Adam
    was created and on it he died. On it the Trumpet will be blown and on it
    all creatures will perish (prior to the Resurrection on the Last Day).
    So send many blessings upon me on that day, for your blessings will be
    shown to me." They said, "How
    will our blessings be shown to you when your body will have become
    dust?" He said, "Allaah has forbidden the earth to consume our [Prophets']
    bodies." (Narrated by Abu Dawood and al-Nasaa'i; classed as saheeh by
    al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa'l-Tarheeb, no. 695).

    It was narrated in a hadeeth that the Prophet (salla llahu alayhi wa
    sallam) said: "Whoever makes his wife do ghusl and does ghusl himself
    [i.e., has intercourse] on Friday and goes out early, walking not riding,
    and comes close to the imaam and listens [to the sermon] without
    interrupting, will have for each step he takes a reward equal to that of
    fasting and praying at night for one year."
    (Narrated by Ahmad and al-Tirmidhi; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani
    in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa'l-Tarheeb, no. 687)

    It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah (salla
    llahu alayhi wa sallam) mentioned Friday and said: "On this day there is
    an hour when no Muslim slave stands and prays and asks Allaah for
    something, but Allaah will give it to him," and he gestured with his hand to
    indicate that whatever he asks fo , is as nothing to Allaah. (Narrated
    by al-Bukhaari, al-Jumu'ah, 883)

    It was narrated from Anas ibn Maalik that the Prophet (salla llahu
    alayhi wa sallam) said: "Seek the hour in which there is hope that prayers
    will be answered, on Friday after `Asr (mid-afternoon) prayer, until
    the sun goes down." (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi; classed as saheeh by
    al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa'l-Tarheeb, no. 700).

    And Allaah knows best.

    Friday is the day that is mentioned,and here is the proof from the Qur'aan:

    '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'! 62:009

    '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'.
    62:010

    I hope this is sufficient.

          There are two NOORS(lights) for Muslims

          If you approach the Month of Ramadhan, respect it, do fasting and other obligations Allah will bestow a NOOR for you from that Ramadhan to next Ramadhan.

          If you approach the day of Jummah and you respect it and read Surah KAHAF(any time from Thursday sunset till Friday Sunset) Allah will give you a NOOR from that Jummah till next Jummah.
          With in that time the best thing to read is Darood Sharif
