Some virtues for offering Jumu’ah Salah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Can you mention a Hadith on the virtue of performing Jumu’ah Salah?



Hereunder are some Hadiths explaining the virtues of performing Jumu’ah Salah:


1) Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The five daily Salah, and [offering] one Jumu’ah to the next, are an expiation for whatever sins are committed in between, as long as one does not commit any major sin.”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 233)


2) Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever takes a bath (ghusl), then comes for the Jumu’ah Salah and offers whatever is decreed/fixed for him, then keeps silent until the khutbah terminates and then offers Salah with the [Imam], will be forgiven between that time and the next Friday and an additional three days.”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 857)
