Jumah Salah obligation, Dr Emdad Khan
يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ إِذَا نُودِىَ لِلصَّلَوٰةِ مِن يَوْمِ ٱلْجُمُعَةِ
فَٱسْعَوْا۟ إِلَىٰ ذِكْرِ ٱللَّهِ
ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ خَيْرٌۭ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ ٩
O believers! When the call to prayer is made on Friday,
then proceed ˹diligently˺ to the remembrance of Allah.
and leave off ˹your˺ business.
That is best for you, if only you knew.
— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
It is simple.
On Friday we have prepare and come for Friday Jumah salah leaving behind our any business or activities
But after we have completed salah we should spread out to seek bounty of Allah swt.
Alhamdu Lillah even in Ottawa, Canada Ottawa we have over 25 places where we can take a few hours off and perform Jumah prayer. If we pray Jumah, then praying other prayers in the masjid will be easy.
Here Allah invites to leave behind business and then encourage to seek bounty but remember Him while seeking bounty.
May Allah bless the brothers and sisters who made efforts to build the 25+ places for us so we can perform jummah salah easily.
Let us take this opportunity.
