“Mom, I just don’t understand. What’s the point of Jummah (Friday)?” What is special about that specific day?
So, if your child comes and asks such questions, would you be ready with the answer?
This e-book by Haya Eid explains everything about Friday for kids with simple cartoons and simplified information.
Don’t forget to assert the following information as well:
The day of Friday is known for the Friday prayer, which is in congregation and is one of the most performed prayer in addition to the regular prayers. On Friday, the congregational prayers takes the place of the Zuhr prayer, and a Muslim is to only offer the Jummah prayer.
Thus, the day of Jummah that comes every week is a day of Eid, and a Muslim is to take this day as a day of celebration and be grateful to Allah for all the blessings He has provided, as He provided to Adam and Eve by giving them birth on this day and then sending them to Heavens.
At the same time, a Muslim must also seek forgiveness on this day, so that he or she does not face the anger of Allah the way Adam and Eve did on Friday.
“O you who believe! When the call is proclaimed to prayer on Friday (the Day of Assembly), hasten earnestly to the Remembrance of Allah, and leave off business (and trade): That is best for you if you only knew!” (62:9)
