What time are Duaas accepted on Friday?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Are Duas made on special hour on Friday before maghrib guaranteed to be accepted as is? The wording in English of the hadith makes it seem so.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh. 

Consider the following Hadith:

فيه ساعة، لا يوافقها عبد مسلم، وهو قائم يصلي، يسأل الله تعالى شيئا، إلا أعطاه إياه

صحيح البخاري (2/ 13)

Translation: On Friday there is an hour when, if a Muslims happens to pray at that time and ask Allah for something good, Allah will grant him whatever he is supplicating for.

There are many views of the Ulama in regards to the exact moment of acceptance of Duaas on Friday. However, Maulana Yusuf Binnori (Rahmatullahi Alayh) states that two opinions are most famous in this regard [and which Ulama have generally adopted]:

1)    After Asr until Maghrib

2)    When the Imam sits for the Friday Khutbah until the completion of Salah.[i]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

سنن الترمذي ت بشار (1/ 619)

فِيهِ سَاعَةٌ لاَ يُوَافِقُهَا عَبْدٌ مُسْلِمٌ يُصَلِّي فَيَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ فِيهَا شَيْئًا إِلاَّ أَعْطَاهُ إِيَّاهُ، قَالَ أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ: فَلَقِيتُ عَبْدَ اللهِ بْنَ سَلاَمٍ فَذَكَرْتُ لَهُ هَذَا الحَدِيثَ، فَقَالَ: أَنَا أَعْلَمُ بِتِلْكَ السَّاعَةِ، فَقُلْتُ: أَخْبِرْنِي بِهَا وَلاَ تَضْنَنْ بِهَا عَلَيَّ، قَالَ: هِيَ بَعْدَالعَصْرِ إِلَى أَنْ تَغْرُبَ الشَّمْسُ

عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: التَمِسُوا السَّاعَةَ الَّتِي تُرْجَى فِي يَوْمِ الجُمُعَةِ بَعْدَ العَصْرِ إِلَى غَيْبُوبَةِ الشَّمْسِ.
