Jumu'ah Mubarak: Have A Blessed Day

Jumu'ah is one of the most important Islamic rituals and is considered one of its obligatory acts. Jumma Mubarak means "Happy Friday", where Jumma means "Friday" and Mubārak translates as "blessed". Muslims offer weekly prayers at noon on Friday, as a core part of Islamic beliefs.

Mildmay wishes all its Muslim patients and staff a “Jumu’ah Mubārak” and a blessed Friday. We understand the importance of this day in Islam and hope it brings peace, happiness, and prosperity to all.

We are committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all our patients and staff, regardless of their religious beliefs. We believe that everyone deserves access to quality healthcare and support, and we are proud to serve our diverse community.


Fridays are considered a celebration in their own right and Muslims take special care in wearing clean clothes, bathing, and preparing special meals on this day. 

According to Hadith, Friday is the day Adam was created, the day when Adam entered paradise, and also when he was taken out from it. It is also the day on which the Yawm ad-Din or Day of Resurrection would take place. As this day has its own importance in Islam, Muslims wish each other "Jumu'ah Mubārak" or "Blessed Friday" when they go to the mosque and make a special prayer. The reply to this greeting is usually “Jummah Mubārak”.
