Revive a Sunnah

In the name of Allah
Revive a Sunnah:  Concerning the Merit of Supplicating During the Last Hour on Friday and the Agreement of the Companions Regarding That

by The Albaani Blog

“The Prophet (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said, ‘Friday is divided into twelve hours. Amongst them there is an hour in which a Muslim does not ask Allaah for anything but He gives it to him. So seek it in the last hour after the afternoon [’Asr] prayer.’ Saheeh Abu Dawud, no. 1048.

Shaikh al-Albaani (may Allaah have mercy on him) said, ‘And the agreement of the Companions that it is the last hour on Friday has been authentically reported, so it is not allowed to oppose them.’ Saheeh at-Taghreeb, 1/444.”

As-Saheeh al-Mustakhraj fi Ahadith al-’Ad’iyah wal-Adhkaar wa Fadaailil-Quraan, pp. 191-192.


Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in [continuing] showers; And give you increase in wealth and children and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers. [Nuh: 10-12]

Al-Haafidh Emaad ad-Deen Isma’eel Ibn Katheer (d. 774 A.H.) (rahimahullaah) said in his Tafseer about this Ayaat:

“If you repented to Allah and sought forgiveness from Him and showed obedience to Him your Rizq (provision) would increase and rain would fall from the blessings of the skies, and the blessings of the earth would spring forth, crops would grow for you. You will be given abundant livestock. You will be aided with wealth and offspring; meaning that offspring and wealth would be given to you. And you will be given gardens that have numerous types of fruits and throughout there will be rivers that flow in these gardens. This is the way of giving Dawa’ by encouragement.”
