As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Rasullullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said:
"اقرؤوا سورة هود يوم الجمعة"
“Recite Surah Hud on the day of Jumu’ah (Friday)”
The above Hadeeth has been reported in the following books: Musnad al-Darami, 2/545, Hadeeth # 3400, Shu’ab al—Eeman, 2/472, Hadeeth # 2438, Al-Durr al-Manthoor, 3/346, Fadha’il Suwar al-Qur’an al-Kareem, Pg.255, Al-Salaam)
It is clear from the above Hadeeth that the recital of Surah Hud on a Friday has been established from the Hadeeth.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,
We make Du’aa you are well. The Darul Iftaa was established in the year 2011. The fundamental objective of the Darul Iftaa is to train Ulama from various parts of the world to become Muftis. In this world of scientific calculations and technological advancements, economic confusion and political disarray, a Mufti is trained to understand and analyze current situations and provide leadership for the Ummah. There is a vacuum of competent Muftis in various parts of the world. The Ummah lacks leadership. There are currently twelve students who are studying at the Darul Iftaa. They are from United States of America, United Kingdom, Mozambique, Jamaica, Zambia, Canada and South Africa. There are many Ulama from many parts of the world who have applied to study the Iftaa course. They could not be accommodated due to lack of adequate facilities. The Darul Iftaa has therefore embarked on an expansion project.
The Darul Iftaa requests your generous contributions for the expansion project. The building project has already begun and is expected to be completed within the next three months. This is indeed a great opportunity for you to earn Sawab e Jariyah in the Aakhirah. This is a tree with many branches bearing sweet fruits for your Aakhirah. Insha’Allah. The Darul Iftaa banking details are as follows:
