The day of Jumu’ah holds great importance and significance in Islam. It is among the great favours of Allah Ta‘ala upon this Ummah and it is a salient feature of Islam. [1]

Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

“The day of Jumu’ah is sayyidul ayyaam (i.e. the leader of all days), and the greatest day (from the days of the week) in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala. It is more virtuous than the day of Eidul Adha and the day of Eidul Fitr in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala.

“There are five special events that are exclusive to the day of Jumu’ah. (Firstly,) on this day, Allah Ta‘ala created Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam). (Secondly,) Allah Ta‘ala sent Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) (and Hazrat Hawaa [‘alaihas salaam]) to the earth on this day. (Thirdly,) on this day, Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) passed away (and was returned to his original abode). (Fourthly,) during the day of Jumu’ah, there is a special moment (of acceptance) wherein whatever dua the servant makes to Allah Ta‘ala, his dua will be answered, as long as he does not ask for anything haraam. (Fifthly,) on this day, Qiyaamah will take place.

“There is no angel that is close to Allah Ta‘ala, nor any sky or earth, nor any mountain or sea, except that it fears the day of Jumu’ah (due to the fact that Qiyaamah will take place on this day).” [2]

Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned that the day of Jumu’ah is an illuminated day, and the night of Jumu’ah is an illuminated night. [3]

In his Mubaarak Hadith, Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has exhorted the Ummah to increase their recitation of durood upon him on the day of Jumu’ah, as this will be a means of their forgiveness and a means of gaining his duas. Hazrat Umar bin Khattaab (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Increase your recitation of durood upon me on the night and day of Jumu’ah as your durood is presented to me. I then make dua to Allah Ta‘ala for you and ask Him to forgive your sins.” See 3
