Arabs used to call Arubah the day we call Jumma Mubarak before the advent of Islam. Allah the Almighty and the most generous has created Prophet Adam PBUH on this day, and his clay was also collected on Jumma Mubarak. Jumma is from the Arabic word “جمعة,” which means “gathering” or “congregation.”
Jumma Mubarak holds historical significance because Prophet Muhammad PBUH migrated from Mecca to Madina, an essential event in Islamic history called Hijrah.
A respected scholar of the Holy Quran, Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan (may Allah have mercy on him), mentioned that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) prayed nearly 500 Jumma Mubarak (Friday) prayers.
This tradition of Jumma Mubarak prayers started after the migration of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), which took place about ten years before his passing. Since there are 500 Fridays in ten years, he offered nearly 500 Friday prayers during his lifetime.

Prophet Muhammad () Hadith on Jumma Mubarak.
Cure is bestowed
Here are plenty of benefits of this blessed day Jumma Mubarak for Instance in a blessed hadith the one who trims his nails on Jumma Mubarak. Allah SWT will protect him from disorder up to the next Friday. If it is the requirement to cut the nails before friday, one should not wait because
Having long nails can lead to having less money to live on. (Baĥār-e-Sharī’at, part 16, pp. 225)
The blessings of early attendance on Jumma Mubarak-salah.
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad PBUH said at the beginning of the day friday the Angels by the order of Allah SWT register the names of comers to the Masjid in the chronological order.
If you’re one of the first people to arrive at the mosque for Jumma Mubarak prayer, it’s like you’re making a big, generous donation for a good cause, similar to giving a whole camel to help those in need.
The next person who arrives a bit later is like someone who donates a cow, which is still a significant gift. Then, as more people come in, it’s like they’re giving smaller donations: a sheep, a hen, and even as little as an egg.
Something special happens when the Imam (the person leading the prayer) starts giving the sermon or speech. The angels, who usually write down people’s good and bad deeds, stop what they’re doing and come to listen to the Imam’s words. More on this particular thing later. According to the Hadith, I will tell you a specific time when Allah, the most glorious, fulfills all the dua if asked.
It’s interesting to note that if 100 people all come into the mosque at the very beginning, they all get the same reward as if they were the very first person to arrive.
Fading traditions: Early Jumma Mubarak gatherings and their decline.
In the early days, during the first century of Islam, people had a beautiful tradition. They would gather at the Jāmi’ Masjid (the main mosque) before dawn, carrying lamps in their hands, to pray Ṣalāt-ul-Jumu’aĥ (the Friday prayer). The streets would be so crowded that it looked like a festive day, almost like Eid.
However, over time, this tradition gradually faded away. Sadly, it is said that one of the first changes or innovations in Islam was the abandonment of this early gathering for the Jumma Mubarak prayer at the mosque.
Sadly, some Muslims don’t seem to feel ashamed about something. They see that Jews go to their places of worship early in the morning on Saturday and Sunday. They also notice that people who want to make money go to the marketplace early in the morning to do business and earn wealth.
But here’s the question: Why don’t those who want to attain rewards in the afterlife, like spiritual growth and closeness to Allah SWT, make the same effort and dedication as these others?
Friday Prayer: A spiritual journey like Hajj and ‘Umrah.
Prophet Muhammad once said something important. He said, “Ṣalāt-ul-Jumu’aĥ, which is the Friday prayer, is like the Hajj (pilgrimage) for the poor.”
He also said, “Every Jumma Mubarak, you have the chance to earn rewards like you do during Hajj and ‘Umrah (another pilgrimage). So, going early for the Friday prayer is like performing Hajj, and waiting for the afternoon prayer (Ṣalāt-ul-‘Aṣr) after the Friday prayer is like doing ‘Umrah.”
Consequences of laziness: Heart sealed by missing Jumma Salah.
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad PBUH has said that Allah, the most generous, will seal the hearts of those who miss the Jumma Salah because of laziness.

Jumma Mubarak sacred moments for supplication.
The Beloved Prophet (ﷺ) said, ‘On Friday, seek the desired moment for supplication from Asr to sunset.’
According to the author of Bahar-e-Shariat, Sadr-ush-Shariah Maulana Muhammad Amjad ‘Ali A’zami عَـلَيْهِ رَحْـمَةُ اللّٰـهِ الۡـقَـوِی, there are two specific times when supplications are readily accepted on Fridays:
- From the moment the Imam starts the sermon until the end of the Friday prayer.
- The last moments of Jumma Mubarak. (Bahar-e-Shariat, vol. 1, pp. 754)
Sayyidatuna Fatima-tuz-Zahra رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا used to sit in her chamber a short while before sunset and would ask her maid, Fiddah رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا, to stand outside. As the sun began to set, Fiddah رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا would inform her, and Sayyidah Fatima رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا would raise her blessed hands for supplication.
It is recommended to make a concise supplication at that moment, such as the following Quranic supplication:
“رَبَّنَاۤ اٰتِنَا فِی الدُّنۡیَا حَسَنَۃً وَّ فِی الۡاٰخِرَۃِ حَسَنَۃً وَّ قِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ”
Transliteration: “Rabbana atina fid-dunya hasanatan wa fil-akhirati hasanatan wa qina ‘adhaban-nar,”
Translation: “Our Lord, bestow upon us goodness in this world and in the Hereafter, and safeguard us from the torment of the Fire.” (Quran 2:201)
The Holy Prophet (ﷺ) said, ‘There are 24 hours in the day and night of Jumma Mubarak, and there is not a single hour during which Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ does not release six hundred thousand sinners from Hell, those for whom Hell had been destined.’ (Musnad Abi Ya’la, vol. 3, pp. 291, 235 Hadith 3421, 3471)
Deeds that bring heaven’s blessings on Jumma Mubarak.
The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, once shared that if you do five things on a Jumma Mubarak, Allah will reward you with a place in Heaven. Here are the deeds:
- Visit someone who is sick and check on them.
- Attend the funeral prayer.
- Fast on that day.
- Pray the Jumma Mubarak prayer (Ṣalāt-ul-Jumu’aĥ).
- Help set a slave free.
Another hadith tells us that if you pray on Jumma Mubarak, fast on the same day, visit a sick person, attend a funeral, and go to a wedding ceremony, you will earn a place in Heaven.
What is the meaning of Jumma Mubarak?
“Jumma Mubarak” (جمع مبارك) is an Arabic and Urdu phrase commonly used by Muslims to greet each other on Fridays. “Jumma” refers to Jumma Mubarak, which is considered a blessed and significant day in Islam because of the superior History it holds and also the upcoming future of Islam, and “Mubarak” means “blessed” or “happy.” Therefore, “Jumma Mubarak” can be translated to “Blessed Friday” or “Happy Friday.”
It is a way for Muslims to express their good wishes and blessings to one another on the special day of Friday, which holds great importance in Islamic culture and is regarded as a day of congregational prayers and spiritual significance.
- Mubarak: This is a word in Arabic that people use to say good things and send blessings to others.
- Surah: In the Quran, a unique book for Muslims, a “Surah” is like a chapter in a regular book.
- Mashallah: It’s a unique way to say that you like something or someone, and it’s also a way to protect them from bad luck.
- Arubah: Long ago, before Islam started, this was the name for the day we now call “Jumma Mubarak.”
- Jāmi’ Masjid: This is the main mosque in a city where many people go to pray, especially on Fridays.
- Hajj: Muslims make a big journey to a particular place called Mecca. They do this if they can, and it’s a crucial part of their religion.
- ‘Umrah: This is like a smaller journey to Mecca that Muslims can do if they want, but it’s not as big and important as Hajj.
- Torment of the Grave: In Islam, people believe that after they pass away, they might face some challenges or difficulties in their graves.
- Jumma Mubarak wishes: Muslims use this greeting on Fridays to wish each other a happy and blessed day.
- Allah the Almighty: This is a way to talk about God in Islam. It means that God is mighty and vital.
- Prophet Adam (PBUH): In Islam, Adam is believed to be the first person created by God, and he received exceptional guidance from Allah SWT.
- Hijrah: This is when Prophet Muhammad moved from one city, Mecca, to another called Medina. It’s a significant event in Islamic history.
What is the Dua for Jumma Day?
It is worth mentioning that Jumma Mubarak has a special significance in relation to Imam al-Mahdi – may Allah hasten his advent – in several aspects. On Friday, Imam al-Mahdi was born, and on Friday, his glorious reappearance is anticipated.
Therefore, the anticipation of relief on Jumma Mubarak should be more profound than on other days. In Imam al-Mahdi’s private Ziyarah (visitation) on Fridays, as mentioned later in this book, the following statement is included:
هٰذَا يَوْمُ الْجُمْعَةُ،
وَ هُوَ يَوْمُكَ الْمُتَوَقَّعُ فِيْهِ ظُهُوْرَكَ،
وَ الْفَرَجُ فِيْهِ لِلْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ عَلٰى يَدِكَ
Transliteration: “Hatha yawmul-jumu’atu, wa huwa yawmukal-mutawaqqafu feehi thuhoorak, wal-faraju feehi lil-mu’mineen ‘ala yadik.”
“This is the day of Jumma Mubarak, and it is the day when your anticipated reappearance and relief for the believers is expected.”
Indeed, Jumma Mubarak has been designated as a day of celebration because it is the day on which Imam al-Mahdi (a.s.) will reappear to cleanse the earth from the impurities of polytheism, atheism, acts of disobedience to Almighty Allah, and sins. He will also eliminate the oppressors, unbelievers, and hypocrites.
True believers will rejoice, and their hearts will find tranquility as the Truth prevails over all, and the genuine faith and creed become dominant. On that day, the earth will shine with the Light of its Lord.
In light of this, it is highly recommended to send blessings upon the Holy Prophet and the Ahl al-Bayt. It is also highly advisable to supplicate for the sake of Imam al-Mahdi, peace be upon him, using the supplication that Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Rida (a.s.) recommended, which will be mentioned later in this book. The supplication begins with the following statement:
اَللّٰهُمَّ ادْفَعْ عَنَّ وَلِيِّكَ وَ خَلِيْفَتِكَ
Transliteration: “Allahumma idfa’ ‘anna waliyyika wa khaleefatika.”
Translation: “O Allah, safeguard Your appointed representative and successor from our actions.”
What is forbidden in Jumma?
Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.) is also recorded as saying, “Indeed, Fridays hold a special significance, and thus, it is essential to honor and respect this day. Be cautious not to neglect its sanctity by failing in acts of worship.
Instead, draw closer to Almighty Allah through righteous deeds and abstaining from forbidden actions. It is certain that on Fridays, Almighty Allah multiplies the rewards for good deeds, pardons sins, and elevates one’s faith. The daytime of Jumma Mubarak is as significant as its nighttime.
So, whenever possible, spend time in supplication and prayer to Almighty Allah. During the night, Allah commands the angels to descend to the lower heavens, increasing rewards and pardoning sins. Undoubtedly, Allah is abundant in His giving and exceedingly generous.”
Imam Ali, Ameer al-Momineen (a.s.), is also known to have stated, “Just as Almighty Allah has chosen Friday, He has designated its daytime and nighttime as occasions of celebration. One of its virtues is that whoever beseeches Him on Jumma Mubarak will have their prayers answered.
Any punishment decreed for a people due to their wrongdoing can be averted if that wrongdoing occurs on a Friday. All the blessings that Almighty Allah has decreed are manifested on Friday nights. Therefore, Friday nights hold a higher status than other nights, and the same goes for their daytime.”
Why do Muslims pray Jumma on friday?
“No day has witnessed a better sunrise than Friday.” When people with beards meet on that day, they greet each other with ‘Peace! Good day!'”
Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.).
“Refrain from committing any act of disobedience to Almighty Allah on Friday nights, as the punishments for wrongdoing are multiplied, and the rewards for good deeds are also multiplied.
Whoever abstains from disobedience on Friday nights, Almighty Allah will forgive all of their past sins. Conversely, those who challenge Almighty Allah by committing acts of disobedience on such nights will be punished for every instance of disobedience in their entire lifetime, and the punishment will be doubled.”
Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.)
What is the traditional greeting for Muslims?
The traditional greeting in Islam or between Muslims is “As-Salaam-Alaikum” (السلام عليكم), which means “Peace be upon you” in Arabic. The response to this greeting is “Wa-Alaikum-Salaam” (وعليكم السلام), which means “And peace be upon you too.” When someone greets you in Islam, it becomes obligatory for you to respond to him. This exchange of greetings is a common practice among Muslims and reflects the wish for peace and blessings upon one another.
What is the best Quote for friday for Muslims?
One of the best quotes for Muslims on Friday is:
“Friday is the key to the weekend, the crown of the week, and a day of blessings. Jumu’ah Mubarak!”
Blessings of Friday for Muslims?
Jumma Mubarak is a blessed day for Muslims. Still, unfortunately, I feel bad that most of the Muslim brothers and sisters are not aware of the benefits of this holy day because, somewhere, they have very little belief in the afterlife.
Allah SWT, the most glorious, wants us to come to the Masjid to pray Jumma Mubarak Salah and reap the benefits, which are so many to count. Even If you are after this Dunya (Wordly life), Allah SWT wants us to ask for it on this auspicious day because there is a particular time on Friday when Allah does not reject any Dua.
Protection from the Torment of the Grave.
The Beloved and Blessed Prophet (ﷺ) has stated, ‘The one who passes away during the day or night of Friday will be saved from the torment of the grave and will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment with the seal of martyrs.’ (Hilyat-ul-Awliya, vol. 3, pp. 181, Hadith 3629)
Forgiveness of Sins Between Two Fridays.
Sayyiduna Salman Farsi رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ narrated that the Holy Prophet (ﷺ) said, ‘The one who takes a bath on Friday, attains purity, applies oil and lawful perfume, and walks to Friday prayer, for every step he takes, he is rewarded the equivalent of the deeds of one year. In addition, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ forgives his sins committed between two Fridays.’
Reward of Visiting Parents’ Graves on Friday
The Prophet (ﷺ) of humanity, the source of peace for our hearts and minds, the most generous and kind صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, has conveyed, ‘One who visits the graves of either or both of their parents every Friday, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ will grant them forgiveness, and their name will be inscribed among the forgiven.’
Forgiveness Multiplied 3,000 Times.
The Noble Prophet (ﷺ) has imparted, ‘For the one who visits the graves of either or both of their parents every Friday and recites Surah Yasin at the graveside, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ will bestow upon them forgiveness multiplied by the total number of letters in Surah Yasin.’ (Itḥāf-us-Sādaĥ, vol. 14, pp. 272)
What Surah to read on Friday?
Reciting Surah Yasin on Friday for forgiveness:
The Prophet صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰى عَـلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has stated, ‘The one who recites Surah Yasin during the night of Friday (i.e., the night between Thursday and Friday) will be forgiven.’
The excellence of reciting Surah Al-Kahf:
Sayyiduna Abdullāh Ibn Umar رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُمَا narrated that the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘For the one reciting Surah Al-Kahf on Friday, a radiant light will ascend from their feet up to the sky, illuminating their path on the Day of Judgment. Moreover, their sins committed between two Fridays will be forgiven.
The excellence of reciting Surah Ha-Mim Ad-Dukhan at night:
The Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم also mentioned, ‘The one reciting Surah Ha-Mim Ad-Dukhan at night will have 70,000 angels seeking forgiveness on their behalf.’
In the Quranic verse from Surah Jumu’ah (part 28), verse 9, Allah says:
“When the call to prayer is sounded on Friday, hasten to the remembrance of Allah and leave off trade. That is better for you if you but knew.” (Quran 62:9)
فَاِذَا قُضِیَتِ الصَّلٰوۃُ فَانۡتَشِرُوۡا فِی الۡاَرۡضِ
وَ ابۡتَغُوۡا مِنۡ فَضۡلِ اللّٰہِ وَاذۡکُرُوا اللّٰہَ کَثِیۡرًا لَّعَلَّکُمۡ تُفۡلِحُوۡنَ
Transliteration of above verse Quran 62:9.
“Faiḏā quḍiyatis-ṣalātu fa-ntaširū fī al-arḍi Wa-iḥtaġū min faḍli Allāhi wa-ḏkurū Allāha kaṯīrān laʿallakum tufliḥūn.”
This verse emphasizes the importance of leaving worldly matters aside and hastening to the Friday prayer when the call is made, seeking the grace of Allah and remembering Him abundantly, with the hope of attaining success.
Why friday prayer is a blessing?
The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, once said that Friday is the most special day in the eyes of Allah. It’s even more important than Eid-ul-Adha and Eid-ul-Fitr. There are six special things about Friday:
- Allah created the first human, Adam, on this day.
- Adam came down to Earth on a Friday.
- Adam passed away on a Friday.
- There’s a special time on Friday when if you ask Allah for something good (not something wrong or harmful), He will for sure grant it.
- The Day of Judgment, when everyone will be judged for their deeds, will also happen on a Friday.
- Imam Mahdi will re-appear on Friday (Jumma Mubarak) in the month of Muharram 10th Ashura.
