Jumu'ah prayer

Jumu'ah prayer on Friday every week is an important day in Islam. It is an obligatory prayer Allah has prescribed for every Muslims for the remembrance of Him. We at Muslimhowto.com
have listed several proofs from the Quran and Hadith acknowledging the importance of Jumuah prayer.

Almighty Allaah the Most High says: “O you who have believed, when [the adhan] is called for the prayer on the day of Jumu'ah [Friday], then proceed to the remembrance of Allaah and leave trade. That is better for you, if you only knew.”

(Qur'an 62:9)

Narrated by Abu saeed Al-khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “The taking of a birth on Friday is compulsory for every male (Muslim) who have attained the age of puberty.”

(Bukhari)

Narrated by Salman al-Farsi (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “A man who performs ghusl on Friday, purifies [himself] what he can, and uses dye [for his hair] or perfumes himself in his house, goes to the mosque, and does not cause separation between two people [who are already seated], prays what Allaah has prescribed for him, and then listens quietly while the imam speaks, all his sins between that Friday and the next Friday will be forgiven.”

(Ahmad and Bukhari)

Narrated by Tariq ibn Shihab (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Al-Jumu'ah (The Friday Mid-day prayer) is a duty upon every Muslim in the community, except for four: (a slave, a woman, a child, or a person who is ill.”

(Abu Dawood)

Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: Friday is divided into twelve hours. Amongst them there is an hour in which a Muslim does not ask Allaah for anything but He gives it to him. So seek it in the last hour after the afternoon prayer.

(Abu Dawud)

Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullaah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said,
Anyone who talks while the imam delivers the khutbah is like a donkey carrying books and the one that says keep quiet has no reward of prayers.

(At-Trmidhi)

Narrated by Abu hurairah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that he heard the messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) saying, Anyone who comes first to the Friday prayer will be rewarded a charity of the one who gave a camel, the second will have a reward like that of a cattle, the next person will have a reward like that of a cow and the last will have a reward like an egg.

(Saheeh Muslim)

Narrated by Abu Saeed al-Khurdi (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Whoever reads Surah al Kahf on the night of Jummu'ah, will have a light that will stretch between him and the Ancient House (Kabah).”

(Al-Jaami)

Narrated by Aws ibn Aws (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Among the best of your days is Friday. So, pray to Allaah frequently on it to bless me, for such supplications of you will be presented to me.”

(Abu Dawud)

Narrated by Abu Huraira (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “On every Friday the angels take their stand at every gate of the mosque to write the names of the people chronologically (i.e. according to the time of their arrival for the Friday prayer) and when the Imam sits (on the pulpit) they fold up their scrolls and get ready to listen to the sermon.”

(Sahih Bukhari)

Narrated by Ibn Mas'ud (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) noticed some people staying away from al-Jumu'ah (Friday midday sermon and prayer) and said: “I had the notion to order someone to lead the people in prayer, and then to go and burn the houses of those who stayed away from al-Jumu'ah!”

(Ahmad and Muslim)

Narrated by Abu al-Ja'd ad-Damari (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Whoever misses three Jumu'ah prayers in a row out of negligence will have a seal put over his heart by Allaah.”
