Jumuah Prayer

Jumuah (also rendered jum’ah; Arabic: صلاة الجمعة‎ ṣalāt al-jumuʿah, “Friday prayer”) is a congregational prayer (salah) that Muslims hold every Friday, just after noon in the place of Dhuhr prayer. It is also called the Eid of the week for the Muslims.

Salah is the one of the main pillar of Islam. Five times Salah in a day is Farz (compulsory) for the Muslims. On Friday, the Salah in the place of afternoon prayer is called Jumuah. Jumuah prayer must be offered in congregation. Jumuah prayer is very significant for the Muslims. It has been instructed in Quran to attend in the Jumuah prayer every week and offer in congregation. The purpose of this weekly congregational prayer is to give believers a chance to offer prayers together once a week, so that they can see and meet the people of their community at a common venue. Mosque is the common venue for the Muslims to meet each other.
