Virtue of Passing Away on a Friday

Q: What is the virtue of passing away on a Friday?

A: The virtue for passing away on a Friday is that Allah Ta'ala will save the deceased from the punishment of the grave. It is reported from Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr (radhiyallahu anhu) that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said:

ما من مسلم يموت يوم الجمعة أو ليلة الجمعة إلا وقاه الله فتنة القبر (سنن الترمذي، الرقم: 1074) 

There is no Muslim who passes away during the day of Jumuah or the night of Jumuah except that Allah Ta'ala saves him from the punishment of the grave. 

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
