Friday

يَومُ الجُمُعَةِ

1ـ رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): يَومُ الجُمُعةِ سَيّدُ الأيّامِ، وأعظَمُ عِند اللّه‏ِ عزّ وجلّ مِن يَومِ الأضْحى ويَومِ الفِطْرِ.

1- The Prophet (S) said, ‘Friday is the chief of all days and deemed greater by Allah, the Exalted, than the day of al-Adhha and the day of al-Fitr.’[Bihar al-Anwar, v. 89, p. 267, no. 5]

2ـ الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): أطْرِفوا أهالِيَكُم في كُلِ‏جُمُعةٍ بشَيءٍ مِن الفاكِهَةِ، كَي يَفْرَحوا بالجُمُعةِ.

2- Imam Ali (a.s.) said, ‘Treat your families to some fruits every Friday, so that they rejoice on Fridays.’[Ibid. v. 104, p. 73, no. 24]

3ـ الإمامُ الباقرُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): الخَيرُ والشَرُّ يُضاعَفُ يَومَ الجُمُعةِ.

3- Imam al-Baqir (a.s.) said, ‘Good and evil are given double the requital on Friday.’[Ibid. v. 89, p. 283, no. 28]

4ـ الإمامُ الباقرُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): الصَّدَقةُ يَومَ الجُمُعةِ تُضاعَفُ ،لفَضْلِ يَومِ الجُمُعةِ على غَيرهِ من الأيّامِ.

4- Imam al-Baqir (a.s.) said, ‘The charity given on Friday is considered double, because of the superiority of Friday over other days.’[Thawab al-A’amal, p. 220, no. 1]

5ـ رسول اللهِ‏ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): يَومُ الجُمُعَةِ يَومُ عِبادَةٍ فَتَعَبَّدُوا اللّه‏َ فِيهِ .

5- Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.) said, interpreting the above verse, ‘The witness is the day of Friday, and the witnessed is the day of ‘Arafa.’[Ma’ani al-Akhbar, p. 299, no. 2]

Bathing On Friday

غُسلُ الجُمُعَةِ

6ـ رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): يا عليُّ، على النّاسِ كُلَ‏سَبعةِ أيّامٍ الغُسلُ، فاغْتَسِلْ في كُلِّ جُمُعةٍ ولَو أنّكَ تَشْتري الماءَ بِقُوتِ يَومِكَ وتَطْويهِ، فإنَّهُ ليسَ شَيءٌ مِن التَّطَوُّعِ أعْظَمَ مِنهُ .

6- The Prophet (S) said, ‘O Ali! People must bathe [at least] once every seven days, so bathe every Friday, even if you have to buy the water with [the money set aside for] your provision of that day and go without food, for there is no recommended act of worship greater than it.’[Bihar al-Anwar, v. 81, p. 129, no. 18]
