FRIDAY prayer
Here is a Message- wonderful blessings and benefits from Allah-if done correctly.
صلاة الجمعة 
On this day, brother Moomin takes ghusl  (obligatory bath) dresses neatly-wearing cap, sleeves unfolded,perfumed,leaves home early reciting (1 below).Walks calmly to Jum’uah masjid greeting whom he confronts,enters masjid reciting (2 below).Gets to front row (not forcing his way between two persons and not jumping over the necks of others) (close to the Imam).Performs two short rakats (Tahiyyatul Masjid) & sits there). Adhan, he listens & recites, & makes  du’a.: (3 below).
He avoids praying anything bid’ah, sits quietly & Minutes later, muezzin recites a salawat (no sharia law ) & Imam emerges, Khutba commences,after another Adhan. After (about 1 hour)khutba completed (Kutbha should be short and the prayer long-) muezzin calling the Iqama, brother Moomin gets up only hearing (4 below) and stands erect, completes Jum’uah. After Thasleem (5 below) the Imam starts Du’a in a group (bid’ah) he avoids this & recites by himself all the required Adkhars ie: Istighfār  Tahmīd,  Tahlīl, and  Takbīr as in 6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,&17 below.  (this is the Du’a for the prayer)  (having moved from his sitting position, he prays 4 rakats in twos of sunnah,  or (2 rakats  after going home) - Friday Prayer will be an expiation for him for ten days of deeds,(& more, Allah knows better)

            وَجَّهـتُ وَجْهِـيَ لِلَّذي فَطَرَ السَّمـواتِ وَالأَرْضَ حَنـيفَاً وَمـا أَنا مِنَ المشْرِكين ، إِنَّ صَلاتـي ، وَنُسُكي ، وَمَحْـيايَ ، وَمَماتـي للهِ رَبِّ العالَمين ، لا شَريـكَ لَهُ وَبِذلكَ أُمِرْتُ وَأَنا مِنَ المسْلِـمين
 I have turned my face sincerely towards He who has brought forth the heavens and the Earth and I am not of those who associate (others with Allah).  Indeed my prayer, my sacrifice, my life and my death are for Allah, Lord of the worlds, no partner has He, with this I am commanded and I am of the Muslims. O Allah, You are the Sovereign, none has the right to be worshipped except You.

 (14)  After  last tashahhud  before salam --- ،
 اللّهُـمَّ إِنِّـي أَعـوذُ بِكَ مِـنْ عَذابِ القَـبْر، وَمِـنْ عَذابِ جَهَـنَّم، وَمِـنْ فِتْـنَةِ  المَحْـيا وَالمَمـات، وَمِـنْ شَـرِّ فِتْـنَةِ  المَسيحِ الدَّجّال O Allah, I take refuge in You from the punishment of the grave, from the torment of the Fire, from the trials and tribulations of life and death and from the evil affliction of Al-Maseeh Ad-Dajjal.’
