What Makes Friday Special (Hadith No. 699)
Kitaab-ul-Jumu`ah [Book of Friday Prayer] starts today.
This Book comes in the beginning of Volume 2 of Bukhari.
Narrated Abu Huraira:
I heard Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) saying, “We (Muslims) are the last (to come) but (will be) the foremost on the Day of Resurrection though the former nations were given the Holy Scriptures before us. And this was their day (Friday) the celebration of which was made compulsory for them but they differed about it. So Allah gave us the guidance for it (Friday) and all the other people are behind us in this respect: the Jews’ (holy day is) tomorrow (i.e. Saturday) and the Christians’ (is) the day after tomorrow (i.e. Sunday).”
Alhamdulillah that He guided us towards it. Friday, I mean.
Point to be noted: celebration of Friday has been made compulsory. It’s like a mini-Eid for Muslims. Every week you have something to be happy about and enjoy. :D
How to celebrate it? Keep checking the upcoming posts. This whole book (about 63 Ahadith) is dedicated to Friday. <3
Alhamdulillah for Friday! ^_^
