    Friday prayer (hadith)

    The Prophet (salla llahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "Whoever takes a
    bath on Friday, purifies himself as much as he can, then uses his
    (hair) oil or perfumes himself with the scent of his house, then
    proceeds (for the Jumua prayer) and does not separate two persons
    sitting together (in the mosque), then prays as much as (Allah has)
    written for him and then remains silent while the Imam is delivering
    the Khutba, his sins in-between the present and the last Friday would
    be forgiven."

    (Sahih Bukhari)

    "I put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord! There is not a moving creature, but He has a grasp of its forelock. Verily, my Lord is on the straight path. (The truth)"


    thanx for sharin'...

    The signs of a hypocrite are three: when he speaks he lies, when he promises he breaks it, and when entrusted he betrays his trust.
    -The Holy Prophet Muhammad,(PBUH)


      The Friday Prayer - Its necessity (Wujub):

      There is consensus among all the Muslims regarding the Friday prayer
      (salat aljumu'ah) being wajib in accordance with the words of God, theExalted:

      O believers, when proclamation is made for prayer on the Day of
      Congregation (yawm aljumu'ah) hasten to God's remembrance and leave
      trading aside, (62:9)

      as well as the mutawatir traditions narrated both by Shi'i and Sunni
      sources. They differ as to whether its wujub is conditional to the
      presence of the ruler or his deputy in it or if it is wajib unconditionally.

      The Hanafis and the Imamis state: The presence of the ruler or his
      deputy is necessary; the Friday prayer is not wajib if neither of them is
      present. The Imamis require the ruler to be just ('adil); otherwise his
      presence is equal to his absence. To the Hanafis, his presence is
      sufficient even if he is not just.

      The Shafi'is, Malikis and Hanbalis attach no significance to the
      presence of the ruler, and a large number of Imamis observe: In the
      absence of a ruler or his representative and the presence of a just faqih,
      there exists an option between performing either the Friday or the zuhr
      prayer, although preference lies with the performance of Friday prayer.
