Friday 27 March 2015 : 10 Facts about Jumah

Category : Uncategorized

 

FACT #1 Even if we wanted to, we couldn’t count the blessings of Allah. An obvious blessing is the day of Jumu’ah (congregational prayer for Muslims). Friday is called Jummah. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “The best day the sun rises over is Friday. On it Allah created Adam. On it he was made to enter paradise, on it he was expelled from it, and the Last Hour will take place on no other day than Friday.” [Ahmad and At-Tirmidhi].

FACT #2 “It was named Jumu’ah because it is derived from the word Al-Jam’ in Arabic which means to gather, as Muslims gather on this day every week, and Allah has commanded the believers to gather for His worship, as He says that which means: “Oh you who believe! When the call is proclaimed for Jumu`ah (Friday prayer), come fast to the remembrance of Allah.” (meaning be keen to go and attend it) [Quran 62: 9]

FACT #3 The congregational prayer (Jumu’ah prayer) is one of the obligatory acts in Islam and one of the great gatherings of Muslims. The angels sit in wait for the arrival of people. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “On the day of Jummah, the angels stand at the entrance of that masjid in which Jumuah salat is to be offered. They write down the name of the person who enters the masjid first, and thereafter the name of the person who follows, and they continue doing this. The person who entered first will receive the reward of sacrificing a camel in the path of Allah; the one who followed him will get the reward of sacrificing a cow, thereafter a chicken, thereafter the reward of giving an egg as charity in the path of Allah.Once the khutbah commences, the angels close the register and begin listening to the khutbah.” [Bukhari and Muslim]

FACT #4 The day of Jumu’ah includes an hour during which all supplications are accepted. Abu Hurayrah, narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him), said: “On (the day of) Jumu’ah is an hour during which Allah gives to a Muslim servant standing in prayer whatever he asks for.” [Bukhari and Muslim]

FACT #5 Giving your charity on Jummah carries more virtue than other days. Ka’b, narrated that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Charity given during the day of Jumu’ah is greater (in reward) than any other day.”

FACT #6 Believers in Allah will see Allah on Jummah.

FACT #7 It is an Eid for muslims. This holiday happens regularly and frequently. Ibn Abbas, narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Jumu’ah is a day of celebration, so whoever attends it should perform ghusl beforehand.” [Ibn Majah] FACT #8 It is a day on which sins are forgiven. Salman narrated Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Any man who performs ghusl on Friday, perfumes himself if he has perfume, wears the best of his clothes, then goes to the mosque and offers as many prayers as he wishes while not harming anybody, then listens quietly while the Imam speaks until he offers the prayer, will have all his sins between that Friday and the next forgiven.” [Al Bukhari]

FACT #9 When walking to attend the Friday sermon, a Muslim gets the reward of both praying qiyam (the night prayer) and fasting a full year. Aws ibn Aws narrated Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Whoever performs ghusl on Friday after having sexual intercourse with his wife, then goes early to the mosque and attends from the beginning of the khutbah and draws near to the Imam and listens to him attentively, Allah will give him the full reward of fasting all the days of a year and observing night-vigil on each of its nights for every step that he took towards the mosque.” [Ahmad]

FACT #10 Dying on Friday, during the day or night, is a sign of a good end. Allah The Almighty will enable the person to be steadfast during it. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Any Muslim who dies during the day or night of Friday will be protected by Allah from the trial of the grave.” [At Tirmidhi and Ahmad] SUBHANALLAH!!! – See more at: http://1loveislam.com/10-facts-about-jummah/#sthash.zdPpNUXa.dpuf

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

FRIDAY MESSAGE 13 March 2015

THE INK OF A SCHOLAR IS HOLIER THAN THE BLOOD OF A MARTYR”

INAUGURATION CEREMONY REPORT (8 March 2015)

Honorable Ulama, respected elders, sheikhs, Imaams, ladies and gentleman all protocols observed. The Zimbabwe Muslim Youth Organisation would like to announce to you the incoming and official ZMYO National Executive Council members.

When we think of the prophet’s life and his companions mature elderly people seem to come to mind. However when we look at the first Muslims close to the prophet, we see that most of them were young. Youths who were energetic, idealist, brave, dedicated and open to experience for example Ali- bin Abu Talib was around age 10 when he accepted Islam. Abdullah and Zubayr bin Ma’sad to mention only a few. These are the youths who played a very vital or important role in Islam. Hence when we look at the relationship between the youths and Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) we see that his whole effort and goals were to form a youth that was believing, religious, virtuous and chaste. Due to our prophet’s warm and sincere interest which was encouraging to the youths, young companions matured to the point of sacrificing their lives, property and families on Allah’s path. To add to that, it goes without saying that the youths of today are the leaders of tomorrow. The future of any nation lies in the youths and what will define their success is the ammunition that they are afforded today. Youths run under the motto “what is for us without us is not for us but is actually against us.’’ Therefore youth involvement and participation is of utmost importance and is the backbone to a better tomorrow.

Zimbabwe Muslim Youth Organisation is such an organisation which thrives to involve youths by any means possible and legal. The new national executive council has vowed to place its service to the organisation, Muslim youths and Ummah or the nation at large. It is without doubt that we succeed more distinguished predecessors just like many of you. The new ZMYO National youth council understnand the demands of managing people and of reconciling tensions. We do know that decisions taken in one context can sometimes be ridiculed in another time hence all these experiences should strengthen and unite us at this demanding time. If we do not lead money will not be well spent, time will not be efficiently used right, but unpopular causes will fail, growth will stumble and our sense of ambition will falter. Thus our pledge to you is to be part of a unique, confident well lead organisation.

Our aims, objectives and ambitions are to build an Islamic civilization that is united, to build an Ummah that is disciplined, that have a common code of conduct and that is fearful of their Rabb. We shall thrive to develop the Muslim youths, to empower, to support them in their studies both Islamic and secular education, motivate the Muslim youths irrespective of gender, race, or culture. We shall run seminars, camps, workshops and awareness campaigns, we shall combat together immorality and HIV AIDS pandemic. We shall represent Muslims youths in local, national and international events such as the world AIDS day, environment day, tree planting day, clean up campaigns to mention only just a few. We seek to run programs that instills Islamic behavior and civilization, programs that propagates the truth about Islam. The Organisation together with its youths takes its responsibility to protect Islam against misinterpretations, misrepresentations and misconceptions prevalent in the mass media. The organisation shall take it to task to create employment, afford educational opportunities and scholarships. Most importantly we shall instill confidence in woman; we shall build the youths to be better employers, employees, mothers and fathers. This shall be done not only in major cities and towns, but remote areas, mines and the rural areas. The Zimbabwean youths shall also be afforded a chance to learn more about leadership skills, about our deen and secular education on international platforms. Zimbabwe Muslim Youth Organisation shall work together with organisations locally and organisations around our country in South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique and other countries as well. As they say no man is a mountain, we would honestly say with certainty that no organisation is a mountain, every organization needs support, ideas and encouragement from other organisations. The chairperson and members of the executive shall take it to task to deliver all the aims and objectives of the organization In sha Allah.  All these we endeavor to execute through the help of the sisters desk which shall look at issues pertaining to woman. The AIDS committee shall do as their name says, Dawah and it shall thrive to deliver a unique and God fearing Muslim youths. The National executive shall work with Provincial Executive Committees, District committees and branch committees, In sha Allah.

The incoming executive will work tirelessly to see to it that these committees will deliver. In order to achieve this we would like to share five principles that we believe will be spring boards to realizing our academic, social, individual and collective goals: Motivation, Hard work and piety Uniqueness, Inspiration, Achievement.

Lastly we say we are on board not because we are clever or that we are the cream of the youths, but because Allah has wanted us and afforded us an opportunity to serve His deen, it  is indeed a great task and we ask Allah to make it easy for us Ameen.
