Jumm’a Reminder


“O believers! When the call for Salah is made on Friday, hasten to the remembrance of ALLAH and cease your business. That is better for you if you but knew. When you finish the salah, then disperse through the land and seek the bounty of ALLAH. Remember ALLAH frequently, so that you may prosper.” [Al-Qur’an… 62: 9 – 10]

اللهم صــلی علٰی محمد و علٰی آل محمد كما صليت علٰی إبراهيم و علٰی آل إبراهيم انك حميد مجيد
اللهم بارك علٰی محمد و علٰی آل محمد كما بار كت علٰی إبراهيم و علٰی آل إبراهيم انك حميد مجيد

Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu ‘ala rasulullaah

The Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: 

Frequently send salutations on me on Friday during the day and night. Whoever sends one salutation on 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.

Imam Ibnul-Qayyim (rahimahullaah), who wrote a book about the virtues of sending salutations on Prophet Muhammad (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam), listed some benefits for practicing the above hadeeth: 

1. Doing this act is following ALLAH’s order

Allahumma salli ‘ala Muhammadin wa ‘ala alee Muhammadin, kama sallaita ‘ala Ibrahim wa ‘ala alee Ibrahim [Faydul Qadeer #1403]

Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar (may ALLAH be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of ALLAH (peace and blessings of ALLAH be upon him) said: ‘Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah, a light will shine for him from beneath his feet to the clouds of the sky, which will shine for him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will be forgiven (his sins) between the two Fridays.’”

                                        **********Surah Al-Kahf during Friday***************
The person who recites Surah Al-Kahf on Friday will have a bright light lit up for him till the next Friday. (Nasai)

**** Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh****

***********************************************
من قرأ سورة الكهف في يوم الجمعة أضاء له من النور ما بين الجمعتين
***********************************************
Whoever recites Surat al-Kahf on Friday, light shall shine forth for him between the two Fridays. (narrated by al-Bayhaqi & al-Hakim classified as status of Hasan by Ibn Hajar)
***********************************************
It is recommended to recite Surat al-Kahf completely the night before Friday, and it is also recommended to do so Friday itself, before Maghrib time. Ibn Abidin said, And it is best to do so early on Friday, in order to rush to the good and to avoid forgetting. [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar, Bab al-Jumu`ah]
***********************************************
Let’s recite surah al-Kahf today, not only for this Friday but every Friday in our lives. This is also a way to show our love
to the prophet Muhammad S.A.W. and he will never forget those who love him by their heart and follow his steps.
