Virtues of the Jumma’h Prayer


Almighty Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“O you who believe (Muslims)! When the call is proclaimed for the Salaah (prayer) on Friday (Jumu‘ah prayer), come to the remembrance of Allaah [Jumu‘ah religious talk (Khutbah) and Salaah (prayer)] and leave off business (and every other thing). That is better for you if you did but know!”
[The Holy Quran, Surrah al-Jumu’ah 62:9][/b]

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Zaad al-Ma’aad (1/376):

Friday prayer is one of the most important obligations in Islam, and one of the greatest gatherings of the Muslims. Gathering on Friday is more important and more obligatory than any other gathering apart from ‘Arafah. Whoever neglects it, Allaah will place a seal on his heart.

It was narrated from Abu’l-Ja’d al-Damari – who was a companion of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) – that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever neglects three Jumu’ahs, Allaah will place a seal on his heart.”
[Narrated by Abu Dawood, 1052; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood, 928]

It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar and Abu Hurayrah that they heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say on the minbar:
“Let people stop neglecting Jumu’ah, or Allaah will place a seal on their hearts, then they will be among those who are neglectful.”
[Narrated by Sahih Muslim, 865]

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The best day on which the sun rises is Friday. On it Adam was created, on it he was admitted to Paradise and on it he was expelled therefrom.”

[Narrated by : Sahih Muslim, 1410]

Narrated Abu Huraira (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):
Abu-l-Qasim (the Prophet) (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “On Friday
there is a particular time if a Muslim happens to be praying and invoking
Allah for something good during that time, Allah will surely fulfill his
request.” The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) pointed out with his
hand. We thought that he wanted to illustrate how short that time was.

[Sahih Bukhari Vol. 8 : No. 409]

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar said: The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The best prayer before Allaah is Fajr prayer on Friday in congregation.”

Narrated by al-Bayhaqi in Shu’ab al-Eemaan; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 1119

Acts of worship which are prescribed on Fridays:

1 – Salaat al-Jumu’ah (Friday prayer) [al-Jumu’ah 62:9] 
2 – Making a lot of du’aa’. [al-Bukhaari, 893; Muslim, 852] 
3 – Reading Soorat al-Kahf. [Saheeh al-Targheeb, 836]
4 – Sending a lot of blessings upon the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). [Abu Dawood, 1047]
