2.) ALLAAH, Azza wa Jal commanded Muslims to perform Salat Al Jumu’ah ( Friday prayer)
The word ” Salat al Jumu’ah (Friday prayer) ” , ALLAAH has used only one time in entire Qur’an
∆∆∆Surah Al-Jumua(63), Verse 9:::O you who believe (Muslims)! When the call is proclaimed for the Salat (prayer) on the day of Friday (Jumu’ah prayer), come to the remembrance of Allah [Jumu’ah religious talk (Khutbah) and Salat (prayer)] and leave off business (and every other thing), that is better for you if you did but know!(English – Mohsin Khan)
3.) Now the point is now-a-days, So called Muslims, these people left the first and foremost obligatory duty “Iqamat as salat” & the only importance they give is “Salat al Jumu’ah”. Even though performing ‘salat al Jumu’ah’ is part of ‘iqamat as salat’. If a true Muslim establish ‘Iqamat as salat’ he automatically performs ‘salat al Jumu’ah’.
4.)Everyone who call himself Muslim should establish Iqamat as salat or else he is labelled as kaafir(disbeliever) in the sight of ALLAAH even though he calls himself Muslim.
It was narrated that Buraydah ibn al-Husayb (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: ‘The covenant that distinguishes between us and them is the prayer, and whoever neglects it has disbelieved (become a kaafir).’”
(It was narrated by Ahmad, Abu Dawood, al-Tirmidhi, al-Nisaa’i and Ibn Maajah).
