JUMU’AH STEP TRACKER

The noble day of Jumu’ah is really revered in the hearts of the lovers of the deen (religion) of Allah Ta’laa, those determined souls who would search for every excuse to glitter their hearts in honoring this day, however it is sad indeed to mention the plight of those hearts which have been weaned off the beauty of this day

Those who never a missed a Jumu’ah lecture find themselves battling their lifeless spiritual souls to attend a Jumu’ah with a positive mindset, if not, they seek to call on weird protocols to soothe their piffling desires.

Did not that personality who was sent as a mercy to the entire universe not warn, The Esteemed Messenger (ﷺ)

‏”لَيَنْتَهِيَنَّ أَقْوَامٌ عَنْ وَدْعِهِمُ الْجُمُعَاتِ أَوْ لَيَخْتِمَنَّ الله عَلَى قُلُوبِهِمْ ثُمَّ لَيَكُونُنَّ مِنَ الْغَافِلِينَ“‏

People should insist on leaving out Jum’uah or Allah Ta’laa would definitely seal their hearts and then surely they would be from the totally oblivious” (Muslim)

Allah Ta’laa instructs to hasten towards His remembrance to cure the hearts from heedlessness and to leave that which serves as an obstruction to His worship
“فَاسۡعَوۡا اِلٰى ذِكۡرِ اللّٰهِ وَذَرُوا الۡبَيۡعَ‌ ”

Hasten towards the remembrance of Allah Ta’laa and leave off business” (62:9, Al-Quran)

That which the All-Wise says is better for you, you still persist and seek to oppose Him? If not mentally in salaah stealing time from His Worship to think about mundane affairs? Allah Ta’laa mentions in this shunning of business and all affairs that be a barrier for you to attend Jumu’ah,

ذٰلِكُمۡ خَيۡرٌ لَّـكُمۡ اِنۡ كُنۡتُمۡ تَعۡلَمُوۡنَ

That is much better for you, if you but know

What if we present to you a task you may have been practicing for years however due to a deactivated heart, it proved to be your deprivation of unleashing 100’s of years of benefits for every step equivalent to a year’s worth of good deeds- it’s fasting and standing in prayer

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Whoever performs a complete Ghusl on the day of Jumu’ah, comes precisely early to the (Masjid) and sits near (the Imam) listens attentively and observes total silence, he will have for every step he takes (the reward of) a year’s worth of good deeds, it’s fasting and it’s Qiyam (Standing in prayer).” (Tirmidhi)

عَنْ أَوْسِ بْنِ أَوْسٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ مَنْ اغْتَسَلَ يوم الجمعة وَ غَسَّلَ وَ بكّر وَابْتَكَرَ وَدَنَا و استمع و أنصت كَانَ لَهُ بِكُلِّ خُطْوَةٍ يخطوها أجر سَنَةٍ صِيَامُهَا وَقِيَامُهَا ‏”‏ ‏.‏
