ztfriday“The best reward is with Allah. “ Sura Aali Imran 3:195.

Excellence of Laylatul Jum’ah: Thursday Night:
“On every Friday night -laylatul jum’ah- the soul of the deceased descends on earth to the homes and call out with forlon voices: O people of my house! May Allah bless you. Have mercy upon us.Whatever we have done in this world,we are facing its consequences now,while the fruits of our toil is being enjoyed by others.Be kind to me: Favour us by giving on our behalf a dirham or bread or clothes so that Allah may reward you with heavenly attire..” Noble Prophet SAWW.

Another excellence:
“When it is Thursday drawing to night an angel desecends from the skies with golden pens and silver scrolls and during the period of Thursday evening, its night , Friday to its sunset the angel does not write anything save salawat- salutations- upon Muhammad (S) and his progeny.”

Not only is the excellence of Laylatul Jum’ah being highlited, but the significance of salawat is being emphasised.

The climax of describing the lofty status of salawat can be deduced from Noble Qur’an:
“Indeed Allah and His angels bless the Prophet; O you who have faith! Invoke blessings on him and invoke Peace upon him in a worthy manner.” Sura al Ahzaab 33:56.

Advise families to set aside special protected time especially with younger children on Laylatul Jum’ah to derive the blesings of this auspicious occasion. Start simply with tasbeeh of Sayyyida Fatima and recitation of salawat.
