Salman (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,

“If a man takes bath on Friday, (or) purifies himself as much as he can with Wudu’, oils his hair, applies whatever perfume available in his house, sets forth for the mosque, does not separate two people (to make a seat for himself), performs Salat what is prescribed for him, remains silent when the Imam speaks, his (minor) sins between that Friday and the following Friday will be forgiven.” [Al-Bukhari].

Commentary:

In this hadith Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) are mentioned that should be followed on Friday. These are as follows:

1. Taking bath (ghusal) or purifying oneself with wudu: The need to purify oneself as much as possible on Jumu’ah. Purification of body can be done either by taking a bath or doing wudu with every step properly.

2. Using hair oil and perfume: One must use hair oil and perfume so that others do not feel any irritation on the bad smell which may rise from one’s clothes.

3. Going to masjid earlier: One is advised to go for Salat-ul-Jumu’ah early so that he may acquire suitable place for seating. When a person goes late, he mostly jumps over the shoulders of others or has to sit tightly between two persons, hence causing disturbance to people already present.

3. One should perform Nawafil after reaching the mosque.

4. One should listen to the Khutbah quietly.

A person who observes all the manners mentioned in this Hadith will receives full benefits of Salat-ul-Jumu’ah.
