As the Prophet – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him – did not perform the Friday prayer on his travels, as for the traveler who disembarks in a country where the Friday prayer is held; He prays it with them, and the woman, the boy, the sick and the traveler are permissible for them to witness it permissible and not obligatory.[5]
  • Provisions for Friday Prayers: There are sunnahs for Friday prayers that are desirable for a Muslim to perform, the most important of which are:[6]
  • Taking a bath, taking some perfume and putting on the most beautiful clothes before going to the mosque.
  • Make sure to come early to the Friday prayer, and understand the imam’s sermon from the beginning.

  • Turning to listening to the sermon from the imam, and not being preoccupied with any words or actions during it.
  • Walking to the Friday prayer place as much as possible. Walking to the Friday prayer increases the reward and raises the ranks.
  • These etiquettes and Sunnahs have been urged by the Prophet – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him – by saying: (Whoever washes and performs a ritual ablution on Friday morning and wakes up early and does not ride, and walks and does not ride, and comes close to the imam and listens and does not engage in idle talk, will have the reward for every step of doing it for a year’s fasting).[7]
