Ml Musa ibn Dawood

The day of Jumuah holds great importance and significance in Islaam. Different forms of worship have been stipulated for this day. It is a day when Muslims gather together and has been referred to as ‘the Eid  of the Muslims’. Imaam Ghazaali writes, “Every Muslim should make preparations for Jumuah from Thursday. After the Asr salaah of Thursday, he should make a lot of istighfaar. He should wash his clothes and keep them ready. If he does not have any perfume in his house, then if possible, he should try and obtain some and keep it ready so that he will not get distracted with these things on Jumuah.  The pious people of the past have stated that the person who receives the most benefit on Jumuah will be that person who waits for it and who makes preparations for it from Thursday. The most unfortunate person will be he who does not even know as to when Jumuah will fall, so much so that he will ask the people in the morning as to which day this is. Some pious people used to go and stay in the masjid (Jaami’ masjid) from the night of Jumuah in order to make full preparations for the following day. (Ihya’ Ulum al-Din, vol. 1, page 161) Keeping these virtues in mind, this book was prepared to highlight to the public the great virtues of Jumuah, so that particular importance be devoted to this day
