Fadilat Sembahyang Jumaat vis-à-vis Surah 62-Al-Jumu’ah (A FridayPrayer)

On Monday, 24 Dhul Hijjah 1437 @ 26th September 2016 I was listening to Ikim Online radio on Ibrah by Ustaz Ashaari. He focused on Surah 62, of which the title itself is about the Friday prayer, an obligatory prayer to Muslim Mens. The prayer is mandatory to be lead by an imam at the mosque, it cannot be performed as individual as Allah has clearly directed them to gather as 1 ummah at the mosque on every Friday. It's a day of assembly under 1 title, 1 ummah, without rank, without differences. I'm writing this entry to the men in our house, hoping that they will oblige and 1 day when they are at my age, seeking knowledge and wisdom from the Quran, they will know that it is Allah personally seek for men to perform this prayer. I make it as a poem type to create more emotion. I pray that Allah may reward and blessed those who is at assemble at the mosque today, 30th September 2016. Goodbye Dhul Hijjah month and welcome a Muharam month....


Wahai anak-anak lelaki ku, Nazhif, Naim dan Nasrul … ketahuilah bahawa sembahyang Jumaat adalah perintah Allah yang diturunkan pada ayat 9, Surah Al-Jumu’ah “Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! Apabila diserukan azan untuk mengerjakan sembahyang pada hari Jumaat, maka segeralah kamu pergi (ke masjid) untuk mengingati Allah (dengan mengerjakan sembahyang jumaat) dan tinggalkanlah berjual-beli (pada saat itu); yang demikian adalah baik bagi kamu, jika kamu mengetahui (hakikat yang sebenarnya)”.

Menjadi kewajipan untuk kaum lelaki untuk tidak meninggalkan sembahyang jumaat kerana fadhilatnya amatlah besar sebagaimana janji Allah dalam ayat seterusnya, ayat 10 “Kemudian setelah selesai sembahyang, maka bertebaranlah kamu di muka bumi (untuk menjalankan urusan masing-masing), dan carilah apa yang kamu hajati dari limpah kurnia Allah, serta ingatlah akan Allah banyak-banyak (dalam segala keadaan), supaya kamu berjaya (di dunia dan di akhirat)”.

Wahai anak-anak lelakiku, janganlah kamu menjadi lalai dengan dunia yang penuh tipu helah, jauhilah sebagaimana Allah berpesan dalam ayat terakhir surah ini, ayat 11 “Dan apabila mereka mengetahui kedatangan barang-barang dagangan (yang baharu tiba) atau (mendengar) sesuatu hiburan, mereka bersurai (lalu pergi) kepadanya dengan meninggalkan engkau berdiri (di atas mimbar - berkhutbah). Katakanlah (wahai Muhammad:" Pahala - balasan) yang ada di sisi Allah, lebih baik dari hiburan dan barang-barang dagangan itu; dan Allah sebaik-baik pemberi rezeki”.

Ingatlah sembahyang jumaat diturunkan supaya kita semua tidak lupa untuk sentiasa bertasbih kepada Allah Al-Malik, Al-Quddus, Al-Azziz dan Al-Hakim, bacalah dan fahamilah ayat 1 “Segala yang ada di langit dan yang ada di bumi sentiasa mengucap tasbih kepada Allah Yang Menguasai (sekalian alam), Yang Maha Suci, Yang Maha Kuasa, lagi Maha Bijaksana”.

Ingatlah wahai anak-anakku, baca, faham dan tadaburkan ayat2 Al-Quran didadamu kerana firman Allah dalam ayat 2 jelas untuk menahan kita dari sesat, jauh dari jalan yang lurus. Fahamilah ayat 2 ini “Dia lah yang telah mengutuskan dalam kalangan orang-orang (Arab) yang Ummiyyin, seorang Rasul (Nabi Muhammad s.a.w) dari bangsa mereka sendiri, yang membacakan kepada mereka ayat-ayat Allah (yang membuktikan keesaan Allah dan kekuasaanNya), dan membersihkan mereka (dari iktiqad yang sesat), serta mengajarkan mereka Kitab Allah (Al-Quran) dan Hikmah (pengetahuan yang mendalam mengenai hukum-hukum syarak). Dan sesungguhnya mereka sebelum (kedatangan Nabi Muhammad) itu adalah dalam kesesatan yang nyata”.

English full translation are as follows:
Surah 62. Al-Jumu'a (The Congregation, Friday)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.


  1. Whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare the Praises and Glory of Allah,- the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
  2. It is He Who has sent amongst the Unlettered an apostle from among themselves, to rehearse to them His Signs, to sanctify them, and to instruct them in Scripture and Wisdom,- although they had been, before, in manifest error;-
  3. As well as (to confer all these benefits upon) others of them, who have not already joined them: And He is exalted in Might, Wise.
  4. Such is the Bounty of Allah, which He bestows on whom He will: and Allah is the Lord of the highest bounty.
  5. The similitude of those who were charged with the (obligations of the) Mosaic Law, but who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is that of a donkey which carries huge tomes (but understands them not). Evil is the similitude of people who falsify the Signs of Allah. and Allah guides not people who do wrong.
  6. Say: "O ye that stand on Judaism! If ye think that ye are friends to Allah, to the exclusion of (other) men, then express your desire for Death, if ye are truthful!"
  7. But never will they express their desire (for Death), because of the (deeds) their hands have sent on before them! and Allah knows well those that do wrong!
  8. Say: "The Death from which ye flee will truly overtake you: then will ye be sent back to the Knower of things secret and open: and He will tell you (the truth of) the things that ye did!"
  9. O ye who believe! When the call is proclaimed to prayer on Friday (the Day of Assembly), hasten earnestly to the Remembrance of Allah, and leave off business (and traffic): That is best for you if ye but knew!
  10. And when the Prayer is finished, then may ye disperse through the land, and seek of the Bounty of Allah. and celebrate the Praises of Allah often (and without stint): that ye may prosper.
  11. But when they see some bargain or some amusement, they disperse headlong to it, and leave thee standing. Say: "The (blessing) from the Presence of Allah is better than any amusement or bargain! and Allah is the Best to provide (for all needs)."
