Friday The Day Of Celebration

The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said: “Verily, Allah has made this day (of Friday) a celebration for the Muslims. So whoever comes to Friday (prayer), then let him bathe himself, and if he has any perfume let him put some on, and use the toothstick.”

● [رواه ابن ماجه ١٠٩٨ وصحيح الترغيب ١\٢٩٨]

Ibn al-Qayyim [رحمه الله] said: "The Friday prayer is from the greatest of congregations of the Muslims."

● {زاد المعاد ١:٣٦٤-٣٦٥}

The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said: “Send prayer upon me abundantly on the day of Jumu’ah (Friday) & on the night of Jumu’ah (Thursday night) for he who sends prayer upon me one time, Allāh sends prayer upon him 10 times.”

● {صحيح الجامع ١٠٩٨، السلسة الصحيحة ١٥٠٢}

Imām Ibn al-Qayyim said: “A time when Du’ās will be accepted is during the last hour of ‘Asr on Jumu’ah.”

● {زاد المعاد ١/١٠٤}


The Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) before Jummah was to pray 4 sunnah ghair muakkadah. Next would be 2 fardh (prayed in congregation), followed by 4 Sunnah muakkadah, 2 Sunnah muakkadah, and then 2 nafl.

In total there would be 14 rakats for Friday prayer.

For those unfamiliar, ghair mu’akkadah means salat which were sometimes performed by the Prophet, may peace be upon him, but sometimes it was abandoned. 

Sunnah mu’akkadah is voluntary act of worship (praying Eid prayer or 2 Sunnah rakat of Maghrib). These the Prophet prayed regularly and made a point to never abandon. So although it is not mandated, a person who intentionally skips them is considered blameworthy.
