Abu Burdah bin Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
`Abdullah bin `Umar (May
Allah be pleased with them) said to me: "Did you hear your father narrating something from the Messenger of Allah
(PBUH) about the special moment during Friday
?'' I said: "
Yes, I heard him report from the Messenger of Allah
(PBUH): `It occurs between the time when the Imam sits down (on the pulpit after the first Khutbah) and the time
Salat is over
There is a difference of opinion among `Ulama' in respect of this moment. Some `Ulama' prefer the
version given in this Hadith, that is, this moment could be any time in the period from the time the Imam sits down
after the first Khutbah and the end of Salat-ul-Jumu`ah. But Sheikh Al-Albani has regarded this Hadith as "
its chain of narrators does not reach up to the Prophet (PBUH)
) (
See Riyadh-us-Saliheen edited by Sheikh Al-
). For this reason other `Ulama' have inclined to a Marfu` Hadith (i
.e., its chain of narrators reaches up to the
Prophet (PBUH)
) and urged to find this moment in the last hour of `Asr before the Maghrib.

Aus bin Aus (May Allah be pleased with him)reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
Among the
best of your days is Friday. On that day pray to Allah to exalt my mention frequently, for your such supplications are
presented to me
[Abu Dawud].
This Hadith brings forth the following three points:
1.The auspiciousness of time further enhances the merits of virtuous deeds, as is evident from the stress on reciting
more and more salutation on the Prophet (PBUH) on Friday.
2.On Jumu`ah, salutation is presented to the Prophet (PBUH). This statement goes to prove that he does not hear
salutation of anyone directly, either from near or from far. There is a famous Hadith which says that he hears it from
near but this is not "Sahih'' technically. Therefore, the truth of the matter is that he does not hear it directly. It is the
angels who convey it to him.
3.The most well-worded is "
Ibrahimi salutation
'' because the Prophet (PBUH) himself taught it to his Companions.
The salutation is: Allahumma salli `ala Muhammadin wa `ala ali Muhammadin, kama sallaita `ala Ibrahima, wa `ala
ali Ibrahima, innaka Hamidun Majeed. Allahumma barik `ala Muhammadin wa `ala ali Muhammadin, kama barakta
`ala Ibrahima, wa `ala ali Ibrahima, innaka Hamidun Majeed.
