Question

Assalamu Alikum ! if some one dies in friday is there any benifit? can we supplicate allah to take our soile on the friday?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.

 Dying on Friday is one of the signs of a good end; in this regard, please refer to Fatwa 89102.

Furthermore, there is no harm for a person to ask his Lord to take his soul on a Friday. The evidence is that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: "There is no Muslim who dies on a Friday or the night of Friday (which starts on Thursday after sunset) except that Allaah protects him from the trials of the grave." [At-Tirmithi] Al-Albaani  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said that the narration is either sound or authentic.

Allaah Knows best.
