Hadith Explanation

Black Dot on Friday

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The days were shown to me, and among them Friday was shown to me. It looked like a white mirror in the middle of which is a black spot. I asked, ‘What is this?’ It was said, ‘The Hour.’” [Musnad at-Tabaraani al-Awsat]

Friday is a special day whose virtues have been extolled in ahadith. Friday has been likened in this hadith to a gleaming mirror. The only thing that mars the beauty of Friday is the fact that it is also the day on which the Hour will commence. Because of this, every Friday, all creatures (apart from humans and jinn) are filled with fear in case this particular Friday be the one on which the Trumpet is blown.
