Jumatul Bidah The Last Friday of Holy Ramadan
For the Ummah Mohammadi, the best gift of God Almighty is the month of Ramadan, which is celebrated all year round, and the best day of the week associated with it is A’awmul Jumu’ah. Therefore, the special activities of every believing Muslim can be noticed in Jumatul Biday. Performing Jumu’ah prayers with the congregation in the mosque and attaining nearness to the great God through special munajat and offering one’s prayers to the court of the merciful Lord seems to be the absolute interest of all Muslims on this day.
Greatness of Jumatul Bidah: Jumatul Bida is very glorious for two reasons. Due to the month of Ramadan: The month of Ramadan is a month of boundless virtue and it is a special gift of Allah for the Ummah Muhammadi. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said in a hadeeth narrated from Hazrat Abu Huraira (may Allaah be pleased with him) that your Lord has said that the reward for every good deed of the children of Adam is ten to seven hundred times except fasting. Because fasting is only for me, and I will repay it myself.
And surely the smell of the mouth of the fasting person is dearer to Allah than musk amber. If any one of you treats him ignorantly while he is fasting, he will say, I am a fasting person. (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Hadith: 5926, Sahih Muslim, Hadith 1151, Musannef Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 694, Musnad Ahmad: 9714) He said that Friday is the best day for sunrise.
Hadish: Jumatul Bidah
On this day Hazrat Adam (AS) was created and on this day he was admitted to Paradise and on this day he was sent to earth. And there is a time in this day when a Muslim praying while praying must be accepted.
