Sunnats and Aadaab of Jum’uah – Part 3

Madina Musjid1.       To proceed early to the musjid for the Jumu’ah salaah. The earlier one goes, the greater the reward.

وعن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال من اغتسل يوم الجمعة غسل الجنابة ، ثم راح في الساعة الأولى فكأنما قرب بدنة ، ومن راح في الساعة الثانية ، فكأنما قرب بقرة ، ومن راح في الساعة الثالثة ، فكأنما قرب كبشا أقرن ، ومن راح في الساعة الرابعة ، فكأنما قرب دجاجة ، ومن راح في الساعة الخامسة ، فكأنما قرب بيضة )مسلم 1/280 )

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: The one who has a ghusal like the ghusal of janaabat (i.e. he thoroughly cleans himself in the manner one cleans himself when in need of ghusal of janaabat), thereafter he proceeds for Jum’uah salaah in the first time slot, then  he receives the reward equivalent to the one who sacrifices a camel for the sake of Allah Ta’ala, and whoever proceeds for Jum’uah salaah in the second time slot, then  he receives the reward equivalent to the one who sacrifices a cow for the sake of Allah Ta’ala, and whoever proceeds for Jum’uah salaah in the third time slot, then  he receives the reward equivalent to the one who sacrifices a sheep which has horns  for the sake of Allah Ta’ala, and whoever proceeds for Jum’uah salaah in the fourth time slot, then  he receives the reward equivalent to the one who gives a chicken in charity for the sake of Allah Ta’ala, and whoever proceeds for Jum’uah salaah in the fifth and final time slot, then he receives the reward equivalent to the one who gives an egg in charity for the sake of Allah Ta’ala.

2.      To walk to the musjid for Jumuah salaah. For every step is a reward of one year’s fasting and tahajjud.

عن أوس بن أوس الثقفي رضي الله عنه قال: سمعت النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم يقول: من غسل يوم الجمعة واغتسل وبكر وابتكر ومشى ولم يركب ودنا من الإمام فاستمع ولم يلغ كان له بكل خطوة عمل سنة أجر صيامها وقيامها ( ابن ماجة ص76)

Hadhrat Aus ibn Aus Thaqafi (Radhiallahu Anhu) says that I heard Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) mention: “The one who has ghusal on the day of Jumuah  and goes early to the musjid walking, and he does not go via a conveyance, and he sits near the imam and attentively listens to the khutbah, and does not get engaged in any vain activity, for him will be the reward of one years fasting and standing up in tahajjud for every step he takes while walking to the musjid.

3.      One should listen attentively to the khutbah even if one does not understand. One should not speak nor instruct others to remain silent while the khutbah is in progress.

عن عثمان رضي الله عنه كان يقول في خطبته، قل ما يدع ذلك إذا قام الإمام يخطب يوم الجمعة: فاستمعوا وأنصتوا، فإن للمنصت الذي لا يسمع من الحظ مثل ما للمنصت السامع (موطأ للامام مالك ص88)

Hadhrat Uthmaan (Radhiallahu Anhu) used to frequently address the people in the khutbah of Jum’uah in the following words: “When the imam stands up to deliver the khutbah, then remain silent and listen attentively. The one who remains silent and cannot hear the khutbah (due to being at a distance) will receive the same reward as the one who is silent and can hear the khutbah.

عن أبى هريرة رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال  إذا قلت أنصت والإمام يخطب فقد لغوت (ابو داود 1/158)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “If you instruct someone to remain silent whilst the Imaam is delivering the khutbah, then you have engaged in futile activity.
