Islamic Text

Yes, there are virtues regarding the Day of Jumu’ah.

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، قَالَ: «خَيْرُ يَوْمٍ طَلَعَتْ عَلَيْهِ الشَّمْسُ يَوْمُ الْجُمُعَةِ، فِيهِ خُلِقَ آدَمُ، وَفِيهِ أُدْخِلَ الْجَنَّةَ، وَفِيهِ أُخْرِجَ مِنْهَا، وَلَا تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ إِلَّا فِي يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ»

Abu Huraira narrated that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, ‘The best day on which the sun has risen is Friday; on it Adam (peace be upon him) was created, on it he was entered into Paradise, and on it he was expelled from it. The last hour will take place on no day other than Friday’. (Sahih Muslim, 854 – 18).

As we see in the sound Hadith above, specific virtues have been linked to the day of Jumu’ah. It is important to note that Islam teaches us to increase worship during periods of greater virtue. On Friday we have larger prayer gatherings, on Eid day we have an additional prayer, in Ramadan fasting has been obliged.

And Allah Most High Knows Best.
