****************************************************************************************

1.GHUSL:
Hazrat Abu Amama(R.A.)reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said that the Sunnah bath(ghusl) of Friday(Jumuah) pulls out every sin of man from it's root. (TIBRANI)

2. MISWAAK:
To use miswaak on Jumua is a Sunnah.It comes in the Hadeeth that the salaat read with miswaak before it, is multiplied 70 times. Suhail bin Hanief(R.A.) states that Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said that to bathe(ghusl) and use miswaak on Fridays are of the Huqooq(rights) of Friday(Jumuah).

3. ITR:
Ibn Sabaaq(R.A.) narrates that Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said on one Friday: "O Gathering of Muslims,Allah has made this Day(Friday) a day of Eid for Muslims,therefore bathe(ghusl),use Itr and regard the use of miswaak(on this day) as an obligation upon you." (MUATTA IMAM MUHAMMAD)

4. BEST CLOTHES:
To wear one's best clothes,which,while not necessarily new;should preferably be white as Allah likes white clothes.(KEEMIYYA-e-SAADAT).Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said that Allah & His Angels bless those who were turban on Jumma day.(IHYAA)

5. SURAH KAHF:
To recite Surah Kahf before or after Jumuah salaat.
It is very meritorious to recite this Surah on the day of Jumuah: it becomes a source of "Noor"(glitter) for the reciter which shines from the earth to the heavens; all minor sins from the previous Friday will be forgiven;one will be safeguarded against Fitnah(trials) for eight days;
if the first 10 and the last 10 verses are memorized then one shall be safeguarded against the Fitnah of Dajjal. (NISAI)

6. SURAH AALE IMRAAN:
Recite on Friday if not read on Thursday.
Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said:"The one who recites this Surah on the Day of Jumuah,Allah and His Malaaikah will send mercies on him till the sun sets."

7. ISTIGHFAAR ABUNDANTLY:
Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said:"On the Day of Jumuah,there is a Sa'ah(a fixed time or hour).If a person's Istighfaar co-incides with that, his sins will be forgiven." (IBNUS SUNNI)
Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said:"Verily, I make Istighfaar and Tauba to Allah,100 times daily." (IBNUS SUNNI)
May Allah give us the guidance and inspiration to inrease our Tauba and Istighfaar daily,more especially on Jumuah;and save us from major sins. Aameen.

8. SALAATUT TASBEEH:
Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said: "Read this salaat once on Friday,and incase it is not possible,then once every month; and incase if one cannot afford to do so,then once a year; and if one cannot do even this, then once throughout one's life.
If you perform this Allah will forgive you all your sins,the first and last,the old and recent,the intentional and un-intentional,the minor and major,the sins comitted in privacy and in public.

9. ABUNDANT DUROOD SHARIEF: (1000 times)
Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said: "Confer Salaah(Durood) upon me excessively on Fridays" (IBNUS SUNNI)
In another Hadeeth;Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said:
"Confer Salaah(Durood) increasingly upon me,during the day of Jumua,and during the eve of Jumua,whosoever does so, I will be his witness or I will intercede for him on the day of Qiyaamah.'(BAIHAQI)
Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) also said:"Confer Salaah upon me excessively each Friday,the one who confers the most Salaah will be closest to me." (BAIHAQI)
Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said:"The one who confers 1000 Salaah(Durood) upon me on a Friday,he will not die until he sees his abode in Jannah(in a dream)." (TARGHEEB,ASBAHAANI)

READ 1000 TIMES ANY ONE OF THE FOLLOWING DUROODS:
"ALLAHUMMA-SALLIE-ALA-MUHAMMADEW-WA-AALIHI-ALFA-ALFA-MARRAH"
OR
"SALLALLAHU-ALAIYHI-WASSALLAM"

10. SALAAT & SALAAM:
is a collection of 40 Duroods by Hazrat
Sheikh Zakariyya(R.A.); and many virtues & benefits are attributed to reciting them daily, if not on Jumuah.

11. HIZBUL AAZAM(Friday Section):
is a collection of Authentic Duaas which has been divided into sections to be read every day.The Friday section pertains to Duroods,and would be beneficial to be read on Jumuah.

12. VISITING THE GRAVEYARD(QABRASTAAN) ON JUMUA:
Visiting the Qabrastaan on this day is meritorious & to make Duaa for all our Marhooms ;so that Allah Ta'ala,may grant all of them Jannatul Firdous.Aameen.At this opportune time,to also make Duaa for oneself for demise on Jumuah, Insha-Allah.
Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said: "There is no Muslim who dies on a Jumua or on the eve of Jumuah(ie Thursday night) without Allah safeguarding him from the punishment of the grave." (TIRMIZI)
Also,it is mentioned in a Hadeeth, a son who visits the qabrastaan and makes Duaa for them,will be recorded as an obedient son.

13. INCREASE ACTS OF CHARITY:
Good deeds done on Jumuah are rewarded many fold more,so one should increase one's generosity;and charitable acts, especially to the needy,poor,orphans & widows on this Supreme Day of the week.

14.GOOD ACTIONS ON JUMUA
attending funerals,visiting sick,fasting,engaging in good actions of public interest etc..)
According to Abu Saeed Al Khudri(R.A.) Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said: "Five good things are such that,if a person can perform them all on the same day, Allah will include him among the dwellers of Jannah:
1. Visiting the sick;
2.Attending funerals;
3.Obseving Fast
4.Offering the Jumuah Salaah;
5.Setting free a slave. (IBN HABBAN)
Therefore, we should take this opportunity of increasing our good actions on this very Great Day,Insha-Allah.
