The blessed prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
"Friday is the best of days. It was on this day that Adam was created, it was on this day that he was granted entry into jannah, it was on this day that he was removed from jannah, and the day of resurrection will also take place on this day."
"There is such an hour on Friday that if any Muslim makes dua in it, his dua will definitely be accepted." The two opinions are :
- That time is from the commencement of the khutbah till the end of the salah,
- That time is towards the end of the day.
"Of all the days, Friday is the most virtuous. It is on this day that the trumpet will be blown. Send abundant salawat upon me on Fridays because they are presented to me on that day."
"There is no day more virtuous than Friday. There is such an hour in this day that no Muslim will make dua in it except that his dua will be accepted. And he does not seek protection from anything except that Allah will grant him protection."
"Friday is the "mother" of all days and the most virtuous in the sight of Allah. In the sight of Allah it has more significance than Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Ad'haa."
"O Muslims! Allah has made this day a day of eid. So have a bath on this day, and whoever has perfume should apply it, and use the miswaak."
"The Muslim who passes away on the night or during the day of Friday, Allah saves him from the punishment of the grave."
“The night of Jum’ah is a lustrous night, and the day of Jum’ah is a lustrous day.”
After qiyaamah, Allah will send those who deserve paradise into paradise, and those who deserve hell into hell. Days similar to what we have in this world will also be there, although there will be no day and night as we understand. Allah will show us the extent of days and nights and also the number of hours. So when Friday will come and that hour when the people would go for Jum’ah will approach, a person will call out saying: "O dwellers of jannah! Go into the Gardens of abundance, the length and breadth of which are not known to anyone besides Allah.” There will be mountains of musk which will be as lofty as the skies. The Prophets will be made to sit on towers of light, and the believers on thrones of sapphires. Once everyone is seated in their respective places, Allah will send a breeze which will carry that very musk to their clothing, faces and hair. Allah will then order the angels carrying His throne to place His throne among all these people of paradise. He will then address them saying: "O my servants who have brought faith in the unseen despite not seeing Me, who have attested to the truth of My Messenger, and you have obeyed My laws! Ask Me whatever you so wish for. This day is the day of giving abundantly." They will all exclaim in one voice: "O Allah! We are pleased with You, You also be pleased with us." Allah will reply: "O dwellers of jannah! If I were not pleased with you all, I would not have entered you into My jannah. Ask for something more. This is the day of giving in abundance." They will all say in one voice: "O Allah! Show us Your beauty, that we may look at Your noble being with our very eyes." Allah will lift the divine veil and His beauty will engulf them. Had His decree not been that they not perish, then without doubt they would not have endured the intensity of His light and they would all have perished. He will then ask them to go back to their respective places in paradise. Their beauty and attractiveness will increase manifold through the effects of being exposed to His Beauty. These people will then return to their wives. They will not be able to recognise their wives at first nor will their wives be able to recognise them. “How is it that you do not have the same appearance with which you left?” their wives will ask. “Your appearance is a thousand times more beautiful now”. They will reply. “The majestic being of Allah was made apparent to us and we saw His beauty with our very eyes”. This great bounty they will receive on the day of Jum’ah.
“Every afternoon, the heat of jahannam is increased. However, through the blessings of Jum’ah, this is not done on Fridays.”
