Ṣalāt al-Jumuʿah: The Friday Prayer
It is mentioned in the Quran:
O you who have faith! When the call is made for prayer on Friday, hurry toward the remembrance of God, and leave all business. That is better for you, should you know. And when the prayer is finished, disperse through the land and seek God's grace, and remember God greatly so that you may be felicitous.— Qur'an, Surah Al-Jumu'ah (62), Ayahs 9-10
In Islam, Friday prayer known as (Ṣalāt al-Jumuʿah) is a congrational prayer (ṣalāt) that Muslims hold every Friday, around the afternoon to substitute for the zhur prayer.
Muslim men are required to attend Friday prayers as long as they not traveling, while women are given the option to attend. Attending Ṣalāt al-Jumuʿah is very important to people who are able.
