Sura Jummuah (62) 29/10/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 62 Jummah

All believers must proceed for Jummah without delay

062.009 O ye who believe! When the call is proclaimed to prayer on Friday (the Day of Assembly), hasten earnestly to the Remembrance of Allah, and leave off business (and traffic): That is best for you if ye but knew!

The verse above enjoins on all believers to attend the Jumah salaah and applies to both males and females. As such, we have to break the custom of discouraging women from going to the Masjid. The verse also mentions that when going for Jumah, we are to leave off all traffic and trade but we may commence our business activities after the jumah salaah. We are fortunate that we are required to only leave business for about an hour whereas the Jews cannot perform any business activities on their Sabbath on Saturday.

Continues tomorrow…Insha Allah
