f:592 -    Is there any excellence if one dies on a Friday?
Country : Pakistan,
Name : Syed Uzair
Question:     Assalam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakutuhu, Sir, please tell me whether the Hadith of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) that whoever passes away on Friday or a day before it will be saved from the punishment of the grave.  Please give the complete reference if possible.  May Allah reward you.

Answer:     Walaikum Assalaam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakutuhu,

There is a Hadith in Musnad Imam Ahmed on the authority of Hadhrat Abdullah Bin ‘Amr bin A’as that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:

Translation:  The person whose death occurs on Friday or its night, will be saved from the turmoil of the grave.  (Musnad Imam Ahmed, Hadith No: 6753)

The words used in Kanz Ul 'Ummal are:

Translation:  Whoever dies on the day of Friday or its night, will be saved from the punishment of the grave and will arrive with such glory on the Day of Judgment that he (or she) will have the seal of the martyrs.  (Kanz Ul 'Ummal, Hadith No: 21085)

You have mentioned Musnad Imam Ahmed, in it the words, “a day before Friday” or Thursday are not mentioned.  The night of Friday is mentioned.  


And Allah The Mighty and The Majestic knows best.
