One of the most essential days in a Muslim’s life.
It makes me very happy to see different pages on Facebook trying to remind people of the essence of Friday in their life. They try to help people out in reading the Hadith and exposing the Sunnah which we need to do and follow.
And I wanted to paste a few things from these Facebook pages and compile them and spread the word out.
Don’t forget to read Surah Kahf today, It’s sunnah… But do not singling it 🙂 ~ Read Quran everyday as you need oxygen each second.
“Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah, will have a light that will shine from him from one Friday to the next.”
[Narrated by al-Haakim, 2/399; al-Bayhaqi, 3/249. It was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 6470]
●|● Virtues of Friday ●|●
The Prophet -sallAllâhu ‘alaihi wassallam- said: “Friday is the master of days, and the greatest of them before Allâh. It is greater before Allâh than the day of al-Adha and the day of al-Fitr. It has five charact
1. On this day Allâh created Adam -‘alaihissallam,
2. On it He sent Adam -‘alaihissallam- down to the earth,
3. On it Allâh caused Adam -‘alaihissallam- to die,
4. On it there is a time when a person does not ask Allâh for anything but He gives it to him, so long as he does not ask for anything haraam, and
5. On it the Hour will begin.
There is no angel who is close to Allâh, no heaven, no earth, no wind, no mountain and no sea that does not fear Friday.”
[Narrated by Ibn Maajah; 1084; Classed as hasan by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 2279]
