The Excellence of Friday Prayer
Allah, the Exalted, says:
Then when the (Jumu`ah) Salat is ended, you may disperse through the land, and seek the Bounty of Allah
(by working), and remember Allah much: that you may be successful.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
The best day
on which the sun has risen is Friday. On that day Adam was created, he was admitted to Jannah, and he was expelled
This Hadith tells us of the excellence of Jumu`ah. Many achievements were made on this day which
also go to prove its excellent position in Islam.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"If anyone
performs Wudu' properly, then comes to the Friday prayer, listens to the Khutbah (religious talk) attentively and
keeps silent, his (minor) sins between that Friday and the following Friday will be forgiven, with the addition of
three more days; but he who touches pebbles has caused an interruption
. ''
1. "
If anyone performs ablution properly
'' means does it in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH), that
is to say, one should not exceed the prescribed limits, nor should one use water extravagantly. One should wash
every organ of the body involved in "
'', at the most for three times. One should neither use water in excess of
the need nor leave any of the organs unwashed or partly washed in Wudu'. This Hadith also makes it evident that it
is more meritorious to perform Wudu' at home.
2.Sins of ten days are pardoned because every virtue has at least ten-times reward. Here sins means minor sins as the
major ones are not forgiven without sincere repentance nor are Huquq-ul-`Ibad i.e., (
rights of people
) forgiven
without compensation.
3.One should listen to the Khutbah quietly with full attention. One must avoid toying with anything (
such as straws,
one's watch, etc
.) as this is a useless exercise, which will doubtlessly deprive one of the Friday reward.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him)reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "
The five daily
(prescribed) Salat, and Friday (prayer) to the next Friday (prayer), and the fasting of Ramadan to the next Ramadan,
is expiation of the sins committed in between them, so long as major sins are avoide
This Hadith makes it clear that the good actions mentioned in it are means of forgiveness of sins but
only if one saves oneself from major sins. Thus, it is abundantly clear that the sins which are pardoned through these
good actions are minor sins. Major sins will not be forgiven by means of Salat and Saum (
). Sincere
repentance for them is indispensable.
