If you can say one thing that’s sure to happen on Friday, then the majority of the audience arriving after the Khutbah has a pretty good shot of being #1. Not only do they miss a part of (or in the some cases the entire) Khutbah, but a chance to pile up some Ajr as well. Talk about economic loss!

Narrated by Abu Huraira (Sahih Al-Bukhari 2.51)

The Prophet said, “When it is a Friday, the angels stand at the gate
of the mosque and keep on writing the names of the persons coming to
the mosque in succession according to their arrivals. The example of
the one who enters the mosque in the earliest hour is that of one
offering a camel (in sacrifice). The one coming next is like one
offering a cow and then a ram and then a chicken and then an egg
respectively. When the Imam comes out (for Jumua prayer) they (i.e.
angels) fold their papers and listen to the Khutba.”

So that makes it, at the least, 52 eggs, per year. And that too good eggs! So what are you waiting for?

So it’s coming! Yes the birthday of the Prophet (peace be upon him) himself! Before we go any further, we need to clear our minds first. We need to establish that we have to begin this process without already having a conclusion in the back of our minds. That we need to build up on curiosity for the truth rather than finding  justification for something we’ve already decided beforehand.

Don’t name the chicken before it hatches!

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله وبركاته

All this “Go Green” and “save the planet” stuff is almost becoming a trend.

Alhamdulilah, the Sunnah covers this in a much better way:
