Friday

Description: 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.’

رسولُ اللّٰهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللّٰهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): يَومُ الجُمُعةِ سَيّدُ الأيّامِ، وأعظَمُ عِند اللّه‏ِ عزّ وجلّ مِن يَومِ الأضْحي ويَومِ الفِطْرِ.

Reference: [Bihar al-Anwar, v. 89, p. 267, no. 5]

Description: Imam Ali (a.s.) said, ‘Treat your families to some fruits every Friday, so that they rejoice on Fridays.

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

Reference: [Bihar al-Anwar, v. 104, p. 73, no. 24]

Description: Imam al-Baqir (a.s.) said, ‘Good and evil are given double the requital on Friday.’

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

Reference: [Bihar al-Anwar,v. 89, p. 283, no. 28]

Description: 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.’

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