News Desk: It is important for believing Muslims to perform Friday prayers. It is obligatory for every adult man to go to the mosque. These prayers have to be performed in congregation.

That is why Allaah instructed him to come to the mosque on Friday and said: O you who believe! ‘O you who believe! When the call for prayer is made on Friday, then hasten to the remembrance of Allah and stop buying and selling. That is better for you, if you only knew. '(Surat al-Jumu'ah: 9) Things to do There are some special Sunnat rituals and deeds to be performed in the case of Jumu'ah.

The direction of the hadith is highlighted-

1. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: جَعَلَهُ اللهُ عِيْدًا ‘O Muslims! Allah has made Friday the day of (weekly) Eid for you. Take a bath and apply perfume on this day. ' (Muwatta, Ibn Majah, Mishkat) 2. In preparation for the Friday prayers, take a good bath, put on the best clothes and perfume as much as you can, and go to the mosque first (important work of honor and dignity). (Bukhari, Mishkat) 3. (Before Friday) enter the mosque (go) and proceed towards the front row. (Nasai, Musnad Ahmad, Mishkat) 4. Performing the first two rak'ats of ‘Tahiyatul Masjid’ before going to the mosque (Fazilatpurna Amal). (Bukhari and Muslim, Mishkat) 5. Engage in as many rak'ats as you like (if possible) before sitting on the Khatib pulpit. (Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawood, Mishkat) . (When the Imam ascends the pulpit) Listening to the sermon silently and attentively. (Bukhari, Muslim, Mishkat) . When entering the mosque while the khutbah is being performed (taking care not to harm others), just perform two rak'ats of ‘Tahiyatul Masjid’ prayers and sit down. (Muslim, Mishkat, Abu Dawood) . Don't be lazy in any way on Friday. Those who are lazy from the time of preparation to the time of Friday prayers should pay attention to this command of Allah Almighty. In the Qur'an, Allah the Almighty instructs the believers that: فایها الذین امنوا اذا نوم الله و واسعوا القرآن ‘O you who believe! When the call for prayer is made on Friday, then hasten to the remembrance of Allah and stop buying and selling. That is better for you, if you only knew. '(Surat al-Jumu'ah: 9) What to do after prayers? The next verse also tells us what to do after the prayers, just as it has been instructed to come quickly for the Friday prayers. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): فَاذَا قُضِيَتِ الصَّلاَۃُ فَانۡتَشِرُوۡا فِي الَۡۡرۡضِ وَابۡتَغُوۡا مِنۡ فَضۡلِ اللَّهِ وَاذۡكُرُوا اللّٰهَ كَثِيرًا لَعُلُ ‘Then when the prayer is over, disperse in the land and seek of Allah's bounty and remember Allah more and more;

So that you may be successful. '(Surah Jumu'ah: verse 10) Therefore, it is the duty of the believing Muslim to implement the advice of the decree written by Hazrat Omar (may Allah be pleased with him) in his life. Then- جَمِّعُوْا حَيْثُمَا كُنْتُمْ ‘Wherever you are, pay Jumu’ah’. Because the importance of Friday prayers is much higher. Which is not found in any other prayers.

Reasons to be careful in collecting Zuma

1. The importance of Jumu'ah prayers is so great that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) wanted to abstain from Jumu'ah or burn down the houses of the lazy. (Muslim, Mishkat) 2. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) added, ‘Allaah seals the hearts of those who abandon Jumu’ah. Then they are among the heedless. '(Muslim, Mishkat) 3. He added, "The one who neglects and abandons three Fridays in a row, throws Islam back." (Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi, Mishkat) 4. In another narration, it is said that a person who abandons three Fridays without doing so is a hypocrite. (Ibn Khazaymah) Realization of Hazrat Kab Radiyallahu Anhu This is why Hazrat Kab bin Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) used to say in a broken heart when he heard the call of Jumu'ah Azan after he became blind. ‘May Allah have mercy! On Asad bin Jurarah; Because he was the first to establish Friday prayers with us before the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came to Madinah from Makkah. ' Therefore, the believing Muslim should realize the importance of Friday prayers and perform the deeds of this day and Sunnah properly.

Going to the mosque in advance to prepare for the Friday prayers. May Allaah grant the Muslim Ummah the Tawfeeq to perform the Jumu'ah prayers seriously and to perform the deeds according to the Sunnah. Donate tawfiq to attain the virtues and blessings of Jumu'ah. Amen.
