    Friday is the best day of the week, as is indicated by the hadîth related by Aws in Sahîh al-Bukhârî and Sahîh Muslim: “The best of your days is Friday.”

    We have another hadîth in Sahîh Muslim that reads: “The best day upon which the Sun has risen is Friday.”

    Another hadîth reads: “The master of days is Friday.” [Mustadrak al-Hâkim]

    Allah has given Friday preference for numerous of reasons. It is the day in which all creatures were created. Adam was created on a Friday. The Day of Judgment will be on Friday. It is a day Allah will forgive sins. It is the day Hell is angry. It is a day in which there is an hour in which Allah will respond to those who call upon Him. It is the holiday of the week. Allah will show Himself to the believers so they can see Him. The deceased people’s souls approach their graves and join them on Friday.

    However, there is no special worship for Friday except what was specifically mentioned by the Prophet (peace be upon him) such as reciting Sûrah al-Sajdah and Sûrah al-Dahr in the Fajr prayer of Friday, frequent inoking salutations on the Prophet (peace be upon him), going to the Friday prayer after having a bath and dressing neatly, going early to Friday prayer, reciting Sûrah al-Kahf on that day, and seeking the hour on Friday in which Allah will respond to supplications by increasing one’s supplications.

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “ There is an hour on Friday that if a Muslim comes along through it while praying and asking of Allah, Allah will grant him what he asks, it is the last hour after `Asr”.

    There is no special supplication (du`â’) for Friday, but a Muslim can ask for whatever is good for his religion and his life. There are many well-known supplication related from the Prophet (peace be upon him) that have been compiled together in many books.
