Golden Opportunity

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "There is a moment on Friday when the slave shall not ask Allah for anything save that He will give it to him." [Sahih Bukhari]

Some say that this time lies between the time the imam first sits on the pulpit (mimbar) and when the prayer finishes. Others hold that the moment occurs after the Asr prayer. It is, therefore, recommended to pray to Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) much on Fridays, seeking the moment when prayers are answered.
