I thought time fly like the wind breeze. It was the time when we were waiting for Ramadan Kareem passionately. And now, we have just received the blessed gift of the holy month. Hope you are also enjoying the blessings of Ramadan Kareem because I just loved the change in routine life during Ramadan Kareem. People spend the whole day with a preference to offer prayers and reciting the Quran. It’s pleasant to see folks preparing happily for the sacred purpose of fasting. Everyone is keen to fast to make God happy even the kids!
But as I already said, time never stops and this holy month will also end soon by leaving its beautiful memories in our mind. After 3 Fridays of Ramadan Kareem, the Jumma-tul-Wida will be here with some great opportunities to earn good deeds.
What is Jumma-tul-Wida?
The last Friday of Ramadan-ul-Mubarak is called Jumma-tul-Wida. The word ‘Jumma’ belongs to the Arabic language which meaning is “Gathering”. As the word “Wida” means “Farewell”, so the meanings of the phrase Jumma-tul-Wida are the Friday of Farewell.
It is also called al-Jumu’ah al-Yateemah (Orphand’s Friday) in Arabic. The last Friday of Ramadan indicates the advent of ‘Eid-ul-Fitr as Ramadan will end in that running week.
Importance of Friday
Friday is the religious day of Muslims on which a congregational mid-day prayer is offered in the mosques. Friday is also considered as the weekly ‘Eid in Islam on which it’s recommended to take bath, wear neat clothes and use of fragrance to offer the congregation prayer along with the mid-day prayer Duhur (Zuhar) in the mosque. Female is also allowed to offer this prayer but it’s not an obligation for them to offer this prayer. However, they can also offer the prayer either in their homes or in mosques.
Alvida Mahe Ramzan Quotes
Allah also guided us about the importance of Friday Prayer in Quran-e-Majeed:
“O you who have believed, when [the adhan] is called for the prayer on the day of Jumu’ah [Friday], then proceed to the remembrance of Allah and leave trade. That is better for you, if you only knew.”
Significance of Jumma-tul-Wida
It is considered the 2nd most important day of Ramadan Kareem. Most people spend the whole day in doing Ibaadah as offering Nafal prayers, doing Dhikar, and arrange iftars to eat poor people.
However, the opinions about the significance of the last Friday of Ramadan are different. According to some famous scholars, there is nothing special in the last Friday of Ramadan that distinguishes it from the other Fridays of the holy month.
It is also said that the offering of obligatory prayers on the last Friday of Ramadan will be a makeup for any deficiencies in the prayers of the whole year. As the Ash-Shawkaani (May God bless him with peace) stated in “Al-Fawaa’id Al-Majmoo’ah” a Hadeeth which states that “whoever prays the five obligatory prayers in the last Friday of the month of Ramadan, this will make up for any deficiencies for his prayer throughout the whole year.”, but he also said: “this is a fabricated Hadeeth without any difference of opinion about that.”
However, God knows better about the truths of earth and heavens.
Jumma tul Wida Nawafil
Here you will find a list of Jumma-tul-Wida Nawafil in an easy to understand format. You can share it with your family and friends so they can also benefit from this nawafil.
On the last Friday of Ramadan, offer 2 Rakat nafal prayer after the prayer. In first Rakat, recite Surah Az Zilzal one time, Surah Ikhlas 10 times, after reciting Surah Al Fatiha. In 2nd Rakat, recite Surah Al Kafiron 3 time after reciting Surah Al Fatiha.
Offer another two Rakat prayers with reciting Ayat-ul-Kursi 3 times after Surat Fatiha and recite Surat Ikhlas 25 time. After Salam, Recite 10 times Darood-E-Pak.
This prayer has numerous benefits and God will grant endless Thawab to the person who offers this prayer with good intention.
On the last Friday of Ramadan, don’t forget to say thanks to Allah for His blessings and pray to get this sacred day and to witness Ramadan in the upcoming year. Remember us in your precious prayers. Happy Ramadan.
