Praise be to Allah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allah from the evil of our own souls and from our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allah guides will never be led astray, and whomsoever Allah leaves astray, no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.

Narrated Aboo Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him):
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Any person who takes a bath on Friday like the bath of Janaabah and then goes for the prayer (in the first hour i.e. early), it is as if he had sacrificed a camel (in Allah’s cause);

and whoever goes in the second hour it is as if he had sacrificed a cow;
and whoever goes in the third hour, then it is as if he had sacrificed a horned ram;
and if one goes in the fourth hour, then it is as if he had sacrificed a hen;
and whoever goes in the fifth hour then it is as if he had offered an egg.

When the Imam comes out (i.e. starts delivering the Khuthbah), the angels[28] present themselves to listen to the Khuthbah.” (ie closes the record book & stop s writing the names of those who come for jumaah after that) [29]
