Caringheart,

For Muslims, Friday is the most special day among other days because on that day there are many privileges, fadhilah (virtue) and the secret behind Friday. And among the secrets behind Friday is the existence of extraordinary events, as the Prophet Muhammad said:

خَيْرُ يَوْمٍ طَلَعَتْ عَلَيْهِ الشَّمْسُ يَوْمُ الْجُمُعَةِ فِيهِ خُلِقَ آدَمُ وَفِيهِ £ُدْخِلَ الْجَنَّةَ وَفِيهِ £ُخْرِجَ مِنْهَا وَلاَ تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ إِلاَّ فِى يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ

“A good day when the sun rises is Friday. That day was the day when Adam was created, the day when Adam was put into heaven, and the day when Adam was taken out of heaven, and Judgment Day does not occur except on Friday.” (Narrated by Muslim from Abu Hurairah)

That is why Muslims have their prayer meetings on Friday, and many more.

Yes Asep, Jazakallahu Khairan,

Friday is indeed very special to Muslims... so special that there's a chapter in the Qur'an named after it. Here is an extract from that chapter:

Qur'an [62:9]
{9} يَا �£َيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِذَا نُودِيَ لِلصَّلَاةِ مِنْ يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ فَاسْعَوْا إِلَى ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَذَرُوا الْبَيْعَ ذَلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

O ye who believe! When the call is proclaimed to prayer on Friday (the Day of Assembly), hasten earnestly to the Remembrance of Allah, and leave off business (and traffic): that is best for you if ye but knew!

{10} فَإِذَا قُضِيَتِ الصَّلَاةُ فَانْتَشِرُوا فِي الْ�£َرْضِ وَابْتَغُوا مِنْ فَضْلِ اللَّهِ وَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

And when the Prayer is finished, then may ye disperse through the land, and seek of the Bounty of Allah: and celebrate the Praises of Allah often (and without stint): that ye may prosper.







It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “We (Muslims) are the last (of the nations) but (we will be) the foremost on the Day of Resurrection,  although the former nations were given their scriptures before us and we were given our after them. And this (Friday) is the day concerning which they disputed. So Allaah guided us (to it), tomorrow (i.e., Saturday) is for the Jews and the day after (i.e., Sunday) is for the Christians.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, al-Jumu’ah, 847). 

It was also narrated (by al-Bukhaari) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The best day on which the sun rises is Friday. On this day Adam was created, on this day he entered Paradise and on this day he was expelled from it.” (Narrated by Muslim, al-Jumu’ah, 1410)

Yes DavidC, the special days of the Apostles are Friday, Saturday and Sunday. As for that Monday in all the history of the Prophets there is nothing specialize for them, besides that, Monday is only the beginning of the creation of trees and other types of plants.
