significance of Friday.

Friday is a very important day for Muslims. ... From the traditions of Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, we learn that “The best day in the sight of God is Friday, the day of congregation” Congregational prayers (obligatory for men) are one of the most strongly emphasized duties in Islam.
From various ahadith, it is proven thatProphet Muhammad used to celebrate this day and he declared jummah as weekly eid for muslims. He  used to wear clean and new (washed) clothes, used to take bath, wear fragrance, wear surmah for this day specially.
Rakats in Jummah prayer
Dhuhr — The midday or afternoon prayer: 4 rakats sunnah, 4 rakats fard, 2 rakats sunnah, 2 rakats nafl.
Importance of Friday
Friday and the Friday prayer are among the greatest principles and signs of Islam. The greatest meeting of Muslims is on the day of Arafa, one day before the eid al-adha on Arafat for hajj; a huge group of Muslims from all over the world comes together there every year. Other big gatherings of Muslims are eid prayers and Friday prayers. Since Friday prayer is performed every week, it is of great importance for Muslims because it makes them come together like an eid (festival) day.Therefore, it is stated in hadiths that those who are not conscious about the worshipping of that great day and who act indifferently are regarded as heedless people. As a matter of fact, our Prophet (pbuh) himself stated that it was a great sin to abandon Friday prayer. Our Prophet stated the following regarding the issue: "There are some people who abandon Friday prayer; they should stop it and start to perform Friday prayer; otherwise, Allah will seal their hearts and they will definitely be heedless people."
