Friday is holy day of week in Islam. It has great importance for Muslims. Muslims observe congregation prayer in mosque on Friday which is also called Salat ul Jumah. In mosque there is special sermon from Imam of mosque before collective prayer. It is also observed as day of peace and mercy. We can call Friday as a celebration day because Muslim celebration is also incomplete without worship of Allah. Friday is called “King of all days” as it is superior than all other days of week.
Friday prayer is obligatory and all Muslims have consensus on this. It is one of distinctive feature of Islam. It provides Muslims to gather together, which is a symbol of unity and harmony. It has a wide range of social and community benefits in it. One must be very careful about Friday prayer because missing Friday prayer is a great sin.
By the support of the Qur’an, the Sunnah and the consensus of the Muslims, it is clear that Friday prayer is obligatory and of great importance. It is one of the distinctive features of Islam. A person who does not have faith in the obligatory status of the Friday and abandons it due to negligence without a genuine reason, becomes a sinner. The Qur’án says:
In this verse remembrance means the Friday Sermon and the congregational service, and hastening implies that one should make necessary preparations for it and attend the mosque promptly. This unusual stress throws light on the unique importance of the Friday Prayer.
