Desirable Things For A Muslim To Do On Friday
On Friday, it is desirable for the Muslim to pray for Allah’s blessings as much as possible on the Prophet (peace be upon him).
It has been narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Verily, Friday is one of the best days of yours. On that day, Adam was created and on that day he passed away, and on a Friday (the Trumpet) will be blown and all the humans will swoon away (i.e., die right before resurrection).
“Therefore, invoke Allah’s blessings on me much on that day, for, verily your invoking blessings on me will be presented to me.” Those listening said, “O Messenger of Allah! How will our invoking blessings on you be shown to you when you (your body) will have deteriorated (after death)?” He (peace be upon him) replied, “Verily, Allah has made it forbidden for the earth to eat away the bodies of Prophets.”
It is also desirable that the Muslim recites the Surah of Al-Kahf (the Cave). It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Said Al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Whoever recites Surah Al-Kahf on Friday, that will provide him with light (in the period) between the two (days of) Friday.
It is also desirable for the Muslim to beseech Allah much on this day, trying to seek the hour in which Allah responds to invocations on Fridays.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “There is an hour on Fridays and if the Muslim gets it while performing prayer and asks something from Allah, then Allah will definitely accept his supplication.” He (peace be upon him) then pointed out the shortness of that time with his hands.
