Once again Allah has given us Friday, which we know as Jumu’ah. This is the best day of the week so it’s only right that we do the best actions we can on this day.
We have learnt in past lessons that extra durood/salat and salam should be read on Friday.
We recommend you read 50 before and after each salah. If you can read 100 before and after each salah you will have read 1000 durood! Easy right?
Use our durood counter chart to keep track of all your durood:
1) Print out the durood tracker
2) Laminate it (if possible) and use a whiteboard marker to write in it. This way it can be reused.
3) If you can’t print then open and write on the document after downloading with a pdf editor.
We have also learnt that there is an hour of acceptance on Friday during which any dua is accepted.
The Hour is either between Asr and Maghrib or in between the two khutbahs of Jumu’ah
Making Ghusl (New Action)
One of the very simple sunnah of Jumu’ah is to make ghusl.
Our beloved Nabi ﷺ has said:
‘To take a bath on a Friday is binding (extremely emphasised) on every mature person.’ (Sahih Bukhari)
Many of us shower on most mornings as a habit. All that’s required is the intention to be for the ghusl of Jumu’ah, and we’ll be rewarded for this action. The reward for this will be:
Sayyiduna Abu Umamah رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasulullah ﷺ said: “Taking a bath on Friday takes out sins from the hair roots [i.e. removes minor sins completely].” (Al Mu’jamul Kabir)
Also, as far as possible we should aim to do ghusl before Jumu’ah salah and attend our Jumu’ah salah with the purity obtained through this ghusl.
So, let’s be alert tomorrow and get our intention right and earn this easy reward.
Our beloved Nabi ﷺ 's Dua for a Companion
Look at how amazing our beloved Nabi ﷺ was!!
Hadhrat Saa’ib رضي الله عنه was once suffering pain. His aunty decided to take him to our beloved Nabi ﷺ. (When we are unwell we should seek the duas of our parents, elders and Pious people).
Our beloved Nabi ﷺ made du’aa for him to be blessed. This dua was so powerful that Hadhrat Saa’ib رضي الله عنه reached the age of 94. What’s most amazing is from the time of this very special dua until he passed away, he suffered no health problems! He would tell people that this is only because of the du’aa of our beloved Nabi ﷺ.
