Pakistan observes Jumu'atul-Wida today
LAHORE - Jumu'atul-Wida, the last Friday of the holy month of Ramzan is being observed today across the country.

Millions of fasting people across the country will offer Friday prayers at mosques and prayer grounds across the country.

Special prayers will be offered for the progress and prosperity of Pakistan, unity of Muslims the world over and their emancipation.

Jumu'atul-Wida or the Last Friday of Ramazan is meant for commemorating the farewell to this holy month of fasting. Every year, it is observed across the country with religious fervour and sanctity.

In Islam, Friday is the most remarkable day for worship and other noble deeds. It is like Eid of the week for all Muslims because there is much similarity between Eid and Friday. On both days Muslims offer two Rakats prayer and listen to Khutbah (sermon) of Imams.

Allah, the Almighty says: “Oh you who believe, when the call is given to the prayer of the day of Jummah then hasten towards the remembrance of Allah and leave all buying and selling (all worldly business) .” (Surah Al-Jumu'ah, 62:9)

The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: “Among the best of your days is Friday. On that day, your blessings are presented to me directly.”
