Ar: Jum'ah

Speaking of the greatness of the day of Jum'ah (Friday), Muhammad said in a hadith: "On that day [i.e. Jum'ah], Allah created Adam." Hence Muslims emphasized Friday because Allah created Adam on that day."

* Narrated Abu Huraira I heard Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) saying, "We (Muslims) are the last (to come) but (will be) the foremost on the Day of Resurrection though the former nations were given the Holy Scriptures before us. And this was their day (Friday) the celebration of which was made compulsory for them but they differed about it. So Allah gave us the guidance for it (Friday) and all the other people are behind us in this respect: the Jews' (holy day is) tomorrow (i.e. Saturday) and the Christians' (is) the day after tomorrow (i.e. Sunday)." (Sahih Bukhari 2.1, Sahih Bukhari 2.21)
All these hadiths are an incentive for Muslims to come for congregational prayers on Friday.
