Friday Sunnah List

1 – Bathing (Ghusl) on the day of Jumumah (Bukhari 877)

2 – To wear nice clothes (Abu Dawood,)

3 – Use perfume (‘Perfume’ refers to men only, as it’s not permissible for women in public) and use the Miswaak. (Ibn Majah)

4 – Going early to Jumuah Prayer (Bukhari 929 & Muslim 1964 )

5 – Walking to Masjid for Jumuah Paryer (Al-Tirmidi, 496)

6 – If the Saffs (rows) are already filled, one should not jump over the shoulders of the musallies in order to get to the front. (Abu Dawood)

7 – Try to sit as close as possible to the Imam. (Majah, Tirmidhi)

8 – Listening attentively to Khutba (Sermon) (Bukhari 934)

9 – Making a lot of du’aa’. [al-Bukhaari, 893; Muslim, 852]

10 – Seek the Hour: Rasulallah (sallahu allayhe wasalam) said: “There is such an hour on Friday that if any Muslim makes dua (Supplication) in it, his dua will definitely be accepted.” (Bukhari 935, Muslim)

11- Sins Forgiven: The five daily prayers, and from one Jumuah to the next, are an expiation for whatever sins come in between, so long as one does not commit any major sin. (Muslim, 233)

12- Increase your Durood (example: Durood Ibrahim)
“Recite Durood upon me in abundance on the day of Jummah since they are presented to me.” (Ibn Majah)

13- Recite Soorat al-Khaf

“Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah, will have a light that will shine from him from one Friday to the next.”

(Narrated by al-Haakim, 2/399; al-Bayhaqi, 3/249. Al-Albani Saheeh al-Jaami’, 6470)

Allah says:

O you who have believed, when [the adhan] is called for the prayer on the day of Jumu’ah [Friday], then proceed to the remembrance of Allah and leave trade. That is better for you, if you only knew.

(Soorat Al-Jumu’ah, 9)

Don’t Forget Allah:

Allah says: And when the prayer is ended, then disperse in the land and seek of Allah’s bounty, and remember Allah much, that ye may be successful.

(Soorat al-Jumu’ah, 10)

Make sure to share this to others and tell your friends:

‘Whoever starts a good thing and is followed by others, will have his own reward and a reward equal to that of those who follow him, without it detracting from their reward in any way. Whoever starts a bad thing and is followed by others, will bear the burden of his own sin and a burden equal to that of those who follow him, without it detracting from their burden in any way.'”

(Reported by Al-Tirmidhi, no. 2675. He said, This is a Saheeh Hasan Hadeeth)
