Importance of Arriving Early
Narrated by Abu Huraira (Sahih Al-Bukhari 2.51)
The Prophet said, "When it is a Friday, the angels stand at the gate
of the mosque and keep on writing the names of the persons coming to
the mosque in succession according to their arrivals. The example of
the one who enters the mosque in the earliest hour is that of one
offering a camel (in sacrifice). The one coming next is like one
offering a cow and then a ram and then a chicken and then an egg
respectively. When the Imam comes out (for Jumua prayer) they (i.e.
angels) fold their papers and listen to the Khutba."
Importance of Keeping Quiet during Khutba
Narrated by Abu Huraira (Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith - 2.56)
Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, "When the Imam is delivering the
Khutba, and you ask your companion to keep quiet and listen, then no
doubt you have done an evil act."
