Jumma Mubarak

The Prophet of Raḥmaĥ, the Intercessor of Ummaĥ, the Owner of Jannaĥ صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘The one who recites Ṣalat 200 times upon me on Friday his 200 years sins will be forgiven. (Jam’-ul-Jawami’ lis-Suyuti vol. 7, pp. 199, Ḥadīš 22353)Dear Islamic brothers! How fortunate we are as Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has blessed us with the favour of Jumu’a-tul-Mubārak for the sake of His Beloved Rasūl صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. Regretfully, like other ordinary days, we spend even Friday heedlessly whereas it is a day of Eid, it is superior to all other days, the fire of Hell is not blazed up on Friday and the gates of Hell are not opened on Friday night. On the Day of Resurrection, Friday will be brought in the form of a bride; the fortunate Muslim dying on Friday attains the rank of martyrdom and remains safe from the torment of the grave.A renowned commentator of the Holy Quran, Ḥakīm-ul-Ummat, Muftī Aḥmad Yār Khān عَـلَيْهِ رَحْـمَةُ الْـحَـنَّان has said, ‘The reward of the Hajj performed on Friday is equivalent to 70 Hajj as the reward of a single virtuous deed performed on Friday is enhanced 70 times.’ (As Friday is an immensely sacred day, therefore,) The punishment of a sin committed on Friday is also increased 70 times. (Derived from Mirāĥ, vol. 2, pp. 323, 325, 336)How words can express the excellence of Friday! By the name of Jumu’aĥ, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has revealed a complete Sūraĥ that is present in the 28th part of the Holy Quran. Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has said in the 9th verse of Sūraĥ Al-Jumu’aĥ:O people who believe! When the call for Ṣalah is given on Friday the day of congregation, rush towards the remembrance of Allah and stop buying and sellings this is better for you if you understand.[Kanz ul Iman (Translation of Quran)]
