Importance of Friday Prayer in Quran

The following is given a verse from the Holy Quran about the Friday prayer.

"O you who believe, when the Salat is announced on Friday, you shall hasten to the commemoration of God, and drop all business. This is better for you, if you only knew. Once the prayer is completed, you may spread through the land to seek God's bounties, and continue to remember God frequently, that you may succeed." Quran [62:9-10]

So, according to this verse from the Holy Quran, a Muslim must keep in mind the following points.

· The Friday prayer holds a lot of significance in Islam.

· The Muslims should listen to the Azaan with complete silence and deep respect. One should drop all other tasks when the Azaan starts.

· One should not keep his business or work at priority when compared to the Friday prayer.

· The Slat is compulsory at its timings only. The Quran does not demand from the Muslims to devote all the time to the prayer and religious rituals. After the prayer time is over, one may proceed to business or recreation or whatsoever is on his or her mind.

· The key to success lies in the frequent remembrance of Allah Almighty.
