An Etiquette During Jumu’ah

 

Ibn’Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said,”

If one of you yawns on Friday (while the Imam is giving the sermon), let him change from the place he’s sitting to another.”

Collected by Abu Da’wud, 1119; At-Tirmidhi, 526; Ibn Khuzaymah, 1819; graded as saheeh by Albani.

In his ‘Awn al-Ma’bood Sharhus Sunnan Abu Dawud’, Imam Sharaf Al-Haqq al-Azeem Aabaadi comments:

1. Ibn Khuzaymah titled a chapter in his Saheeh “The Recommendation for the drowsy person to change his place on Friday”

2. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) didn’t intend the entire day in this hadeeth. What he meant was that if you are in the masjid waiting for the Jumu’ah prayer or during the Khutbah. However this action occurs more during the sermon.

3. The wisdom in changing the sitting place is that moving removes sleepiness. There is also a possibility that the wisdom for this action is moving from the place where he suffered inattention due to his dozing to another. If he dozes off while sitting then there is no harm for him in that action. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) ordered his companions (may Allah be pleased with them) who dozed off while waiting for Fajr in the valley to move.

4. The person waiting for the prayer is in prayer. Yawning while praying is from Shaytaan. And maybe the command for moving is the elimination of Shaytaan’s relationship to the person sitting down negligent about Allah in the masjid, or the person listening to the Khutbah or the person being involved in anything fruitful
