    Friday is the 6th day in Islamic week. The literal meaning of Friday is assembling or gathering. In Islam, this day is given the most significance than some other days of the week. Each Friday, Prayer of Jummah is offered and for this supplication extraordinary time is taken. Imams of all masjids convey khutbah on an exceptional theme each Friday.

He SAW used to wear perfect and new (washed) garments, used to clean up, wear aroma, wear surmah during the current day specially.The Holy Prophet Muhammad ï·ºdescribed the ideals of Jummah petition in the accompanying hadith with these words;

    "At the point when the Friday comes, at each entryway of the Masjid there stands Angels who record (the names of) the individuals who start things out, at that point who comes straightaway. At the point when the Imam takes a seat, the records are shut and they come to tune in to the update , i.e. the Khutba… ." Muslim 1984.

    While the quick on Jummah is prohibited i.e. the single quick in seven days can't be seen on jummah however it very well may be seen in combine i.e. with Thursday or with Saturday.

    From the history, it is demonstrated that Jummah was most essential day for the past countries also. It is as yet thought about a favored day in numerous religions for instance Hinduism. Accordingly, Friday is viewed as an extraordinary and essential day appropriate from the earliest starting point of humankind.

    Hazrat Abu Huraira RA stated that Allah's Apostle SAW said, "Any individual who washes up on Friday like the shower of Janaba and after that goes for the supplication (in the principal hour i.e. early), it seems as though he had yielded a camel (in Allah's motivation); and whoever goes in the second hour it seems as though he had relinquished a cow; and whoever goes in the third hour, at that point maybe he had yielded a horned slam; and in the event that one goes in the fourth hour, at that point it seems as though he had relinquished a hen; and whoever goes in the fifth hour then it seems as though he had offered an egg. At the point when the Imam turns out (i.e. begins conveying the Khutba), the holy messengers present themselves to tune in to the Khutba." Bukhari,2:425, Muslim,2:582 ( Book of Friday Prayer)

    Imam Bukhari and Muslim announced that Holy Prophet Muhammad SAW had stated, "We (Muslims) came last but then we are the first upon the arrival of judgment. They have gotten the books previously us (which means Torah and Injil). We have gotten the book after them (which means the Qur'an). Friday was their day to be celebrated. In any case, they debated on that while Allah had disclosed to us Friday is the day to celebrate. Therefore they will tail us. The Jews laud Saturday, and the Christians celebrate Sunday."

    Likewise revealed by Imam Muslim, Abu-Dawood, Al-Nasai, and Al-Tirmizi, that Holy Prophet Muhammad SAW had stated, "The greatest day amid which the sun have risen is Friday. It is the Day Adam was made. It is the day when Adam entered heaven and furthermore when he was taken out from it. It is likewise the day on which the Day of Judgment happens."

    Rasool Allah SAW is reported to have said that, "Recite Durood upon me in abundance upon the arrival of Jummah since they are introduced to me." (Ibn Majah)
