Friday will be forgiven
This Hadith stresses the following four points:
1.The need to purify oneself as much as possible on Jumu`ah. One must use hair oil and perfume so that others do
not feel any irritation on the bad smell which may rise from one's clothes.
2.One is advised to go for Salat-ul-Jumu`ah early so that he has not to jump over the shoulders of others, nor has to
sit tightly between two persons. If a person goes to the mosque late, then he should occupy the available seat and
observe full manners.
3.One should perform Nawafil after reaching the mosque.
4.One should listen to the Khutbah quietly. A person who observes all the manners mentioned in this Hadith will
receives full benefits of Salat-ul-Jumu`ah.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
He who
takes a bath on Friday, like the bath for ceremonial purity, and then goes (to the mosque), he is like one who offers a
camel as a sacrifice to seek the Pleasure of Allah; and he who comes at the second hour is like one who offers a cow
to win the Pleasure of Allah; and he who comes at the third hour is like one who offers a ram with horns (in
sacrifice); and he who comes at the fourth hour is like one who offers a hen; and he who comes at the fifth hour is
like one who offers an egg. And when the Imam ascends the pulpit, the angels (who write the names of those who
come to the mosque before the coming of the Imam) close (their record) in order to listen to the Khutbah
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith mentions the merits of going early for Salat-ul-Jumu`ah and narrates inducements
provided for it. The earlier a person goes for it, the greater his reward will be. In fact, the reward for it goes on
diminishing in proportion to the delay that he makes in reaching the mosque for this purpose so much so that he who
reaches the Masjid after the Khutbah, will be totally deprived of the benefits which go with it because his name does
not figure in the register which shows men of merits.
Salat-ul-Jumu`ah is also attended by angels. This fact shows the eminence for the Khutbah of Salat-ul-Jumu`ah and
the Salat itself.
The Ghusl performed on Jumu`ah should be done with the same meticulous care as is done in Ghusl Janabah (

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said while talking
about the merits of Friday, "
There is a time on Friday at which a Muslim, while he (or she) is performing Salat and
is supplicating, will be granted whatever he (or she) is supplicating for
.'' And he (PBUH) pointed with his hand to
indicate that this period of time is very short.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith mentions another distinction of Jumu`ah, namely a moment in which every prayer that a
person then makes is granted with the condition that what one is asking for is good and lawful. It is a very short
moment and its time has also not been revealed. For this reason one should remember Allah frequently and pray to
Him on Jumu`ah so that one attains that moment when prayers are answered. Prayers can also be answered outside
Salat if one happens to be supplicating at the specified moment.
