5 Common Mistakes We Make During Jummah Prayers

Jummah Prayers are very important for every Muslim. Recently we talked about the things you should do on Friday Prayer day and today we will talk about the mistakes we make during Friday prayers.

These are 5 major mistakes we make while Jummah prayers:


Holy Prophet PBUH prohibited talking during Khutbah. It is not allowed to distract anyone from Khutbah. Prophet PBUH told Muslims to “Keep Quiet” during Khutbah. So one should stay quiet when Imam is saying the Khutbah, it is beneficial for us to get a translated copy of Khutbah, so we can understand better what Imam is saying.

Allah's Messenger (p.b.u.h) said, "When the Imam is delivering the Khutba, and you ask your companion to keep quiet and listen, then no doubt you have done an evil act."

(Sahih Al Bukhari)


People who do not listen to Khutbah are missing out the entire reward of Praying Jummah. The Khutbah should have listened with all of your attention. And for those who do not listen to it, will not get rewarded.

“One who distracts himself with pebbles during the Khutbah will not get the (Jumu’ah) reward”.

Working during the Jummah Salah is prohibited, as soon as you hear the Adhaan on Friday, you should rush towards mosque and put a pause on every work you are doing at that time.

O you who have believed, when [the adhan] is called for the prayer on the day of Jumu’ah [Friday], then proceed to the remembrance of Allah and leave trade. That is better for you, if you only knew.

(Quran 62:9)


You should always be ready for Friday prayers, Do not plan anything which becomes the reason for you to be late for the Jummah. Muhammad PBUH said that there is a reward of fasting on each step you take towards the mosque to pray Friday prayer to take Ghusl.

The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said whoever performs Ghusl, arrives early, gets close to the khatib and listens, there will be a reward of a year of fasting and praying for every step he takes.


The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, “On every Friday the angels take their stand at every gate of the mosque to write the names of the people chronologically (i.e. according to the time of their arrival for the Friday prayer) and when the Imam sits (on the pulpit) they fold up their scrolls and get ready to listen to the sermon.”

Holy prophet PBUH ordered and advised us to wear best and clean clothes for Friday prayers. As Prophet PBUH himself used to wear his best and clean clothes on Friday.

Prophet (p.b.u.h) delivered a sermon to the people on Friday, and he saw them wearing woolen clothes, The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) said:

“There is nothing wrong with any one of you, if he can afford it, buying two garments for Friday, other than his daily work clothes.”

[Sunan Ibn Majah]

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
