Some Interesting Facts about the day of Jummah

Facts about the day of Jummah:

I’m going to share some interesting facts about the day of Jummah.

Is it true that the Day of Judgement will come on a Friday, 10th Muharram?

Praise be to Allah:

According to Islamqa, Everyone who gives a specific time or date for the onset of the Day of Judgement is a fabricator and a liar. The onset of the Day of Resurrection is the “Hour” of which Allah Almighty says:

 “They ask you about the Hour (Day of Resurrection): ‘When will be its appointed time?’ Say: ‘The knowledge thereof is with my Lord (Alone). None can reveal its time but He’” [al-A’raaf 7:187]

“Nor say of anything,”I shall be sure to do so and so tomorrow” without adding, ” if Allah (SWT) Wills”. [18:23-24]

But when the Day of Judgment comes, at the time which is known to Allah (only), which will be a Friday, then the system of this universe, with its night and day, sun and moon and stars, will be changed.

Hazrat Ali Birth:

Imam Ali (R.A) was born in the Holy Kaaba at Mecca on Friday, the 13th day of Rajab, 600 A.D.

More Importantly, Both the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) and Hazrat Ali belonged to the same clan. They were Hashimites, the clan of Bani Hashim. Muhammad’s father was Abdulla, and that of Hazrat Ali, Abu Talib. They were brothers and their father was Abdul Muttalib.

Martyrdom of Hazrat Usman:

Hazrat Usman (R.A) belonged to a noble family of Quraish a tribe of Mecca. He was born in 573 A.C. He (R.A) was from the “Umayyah” family of Quraish that was a well reputed and honorable family of Mecca during the pre-Islamic days.

His inherited name was “Abu Amr” but he (R.A) was commonly known as “Usman ibn Affan” as his father was “Affan bin Abul-As”.

One day when He (R.A) was reciting the Sacred Book of the Almighty Lord in his home, he (R.A) was brutally martyred by heretics.

Thus, He (R.A) attained the great status of being called a Martyr and as He (R.A) was assassinated on Friday, 17th of Dhul Hijjah, 35 A.H, at the age of 84. (Source: quranreading.com).

How did Pharaohs died:

Firon (Pharaoh) was the ruler of Egypt during the time of Prophet Moosa -peace be on him.

And [recall] when We parted the sea for you and saved you and drowned the people of Pharaoh while you were looking on. (Al-Baqarah 2:50)

So We took him and his soldiers and threw them into the sea. So see how was the end of the wrongdoers. (Al-Qasas 28:40)

So he intended to drive them from the land, but We drowned him and those with him all together. (Al-Isra 17:103)

And when they angered Us, We took retribution from them and drowned them all. (Az-Zukhruf 43:55)

It is clear from the above verses that the Pharaoh and his hosts were drowned. But it does not say what happened to the body of the Pharaoh after he was drowned. The verse below explains:

We took the Children of Israel across the sea: Pharaoh and his hosts followed them in insolence and spite. At length, when overwhelmed with the flood, he said: “I believe that there is no god except Him Whom the Children of Israel believe in: I am of those who submit (to Allah in Islam).” (It was said to him): “Ah now!- But a little while before, wast thou in rebellion!- and thou didst mischief (and violence)! “This day shall We save thee in the body, that thou mayest be a sign to those who come after thee! but verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Signs!”[Qur’ân 10:90-92]

Hazrat Noah (A.S):

Hazrat Nooh (A.S) fathers name is (Lamak), Hazrat Nooh (A.S) was given Nabuwwat after 40 Years and you spent approximate 950 years in your society with your Nation (Qom).

And indeed We sent Noah to his people and he said O my people!  Worship God!  You have no other god but Him.(Quran 23:23)

According to the history you lived (250) years more after the flood and according to this your total age is around (one thousand and two forty years).

Abu Hurairah narrated that the Prophet Muhammad said:

“On the day of Judgement, the people will come to Noah and say ‘Oh Noah, you are the first of the Messengers sent to earth, and God called you a thankful slave.”(Saheeh Al-Bukhari)

Battle of Karbala:

The Battle of Karbala took place on Muharram 10 (Friday), in the year 61 AH of the Islamic calendar (October 10, 680 AD) in Karbala, in present-day Iraq.

Hazrat Adam (A.S) Birth:

Hazrat Adam (A.S) was created on this day and he was also permitted to enter the Jannah on the day of Friday.
