Why A Friday in Masjid Al Haram is so special? Friday is like any other day in Masjid al-Haram. But when the time comes for Jummah prayers, All the shops will be closed. Note these shops will be closed around 1030am till 0100pm.
The gates of the Masjid Al haram too will be closed.
You must wake up early to have your food and walk to Masjid before the gate closes. The reason for closing the gates is to control the crowd into the Masjid al-Haram.
Jummah prayers at the Masjid Al Haram is one the greatest thing to experience. If you are there for Umrah, make sure you wake up for fajr on that Friday. Pray your fajr at masjid Al haram. Recite Surah Al Kahf. The whole surah, If not the first ten and the last ten Ayats of the surah al Kahf.
Try to pray Friday Jummah prayers inside Masjid Al Haram. If possible, near the Kaaba. You have to leave for prayers around 10 in the morning. If you go late, the authorities will close its entrance or gates. You might have to pray outside the mosque. Come on... Most probably you must be staying there only for one Friday. Why do you want to risk it? And loose or waste an opportunity given by Allah to pray a Friday Jummah salat in Masjid al-Haram.
Despite the availability of several other masjids in Makkah that too closer to the masjid Al haram. The Masjid Al haram gets a massive number of worshipers. Why?
Because it’s the virtue of the Friday jummah prayers and virtue of praying salat in the Masjid al-Haram. The workers and shop owners of mecca live there for years. Even they take every opportunity to pray jummah inside the Masjid al-Haram. People come from different cities.
Furthermore, some Umrah pilgrims plan an Umrah that they get only one Friday jummah prayers in the masjid al haram. So, do not take it lightly. Maybe it’s your last Friday jummah in Makkah. May Allah give us long lives and May Allah give us more opportunities to enter the Masjid al-Haram.
Performing an Umrah on a Friday can be little tactical. But not impossible. Because they will close the tawaf area for Friday Jummah prayers, but they shut it a few hours before the prayers. Therefore, plan the tawaf well before Jummah. The road from Aishah mosque to the Masjid Al Haram might get congested before Jummah. So, you make you arrange it before 1030 am.
If you are still not sure whether you can make it, perform the Umrah on Thursday night after maghrib which is Friday night is according to Islam. In Islam night belongs to the day that follows it. But make sure you don’t skip Fajr prayers.
note: There will be Salathul Janaza offered in jamaat (congregation) after the Jummah prayers.
What is Salathul Janaza?
how to pray Salathul Janaza?
“O you who believe (Muslims)! When the call is proclaimed for the Salaah (prayer) on Friday (Jumu‘ah prayer), come to the remembrance of Allaah [Jumu‘ah religious talk (Khutbah) and Salaah (prayer)] and leave off business (and every other thing). That is better for you if you did but know!”
