Sunan an-Nasa'i Vol. 2, Book of Jumu'ah (Friday Prayer), Hadith 1433

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said:

"Abu Al-Qasim ﷺ said: 'On Friday, there is an hour when, if a Muslim slave stands in prayer and asks Allah (Subhanahu wa-Taala) for something at that time, He will give it to him.'" He was reducing it: lessening it.

أَخْبَرَنَا عَمْرُو بْنُ زُرَارَةَ، قَالَ أَنْبَأَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ، عَنْ أَيُّوبَ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو الْقَاسِمِ صلى الله عليه وسلم " إِنَّ فِي الْجُمُعَةِ سَاعَةً لاَ يُوَافِقُهَا عَبْدٌ مُسْلِمٌ قَائِمٌ يُصَلِّي يَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ شَيْئًا إِلاَّ أَعْطَاهُ إِيَّاهُ " . قُلْنَا يُقَلِّلُهَا يُزَهِّدُهَا . قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ لاَ نَعْلَمُ أَحَدًا حَدَّثَ بِهَذَا الْحَدِيثِ غَيْرَ رَبَاحٍ عَنْ مَعْمَرٍ عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ إِلاَّ أَيُّوبَ بْنَ سُوَيْدٍ فَإِنَّهُ حَدَّثَ بِهِ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ عَنْ سَعِيدٍ وَأَبِي سَلَمَةَ وَأَيُّوبُ بْنُ سُوَيْدٍ مَتْرُوكُ الْحَدِيثِ .

Comments by Darussalām Publications

The thing which is immensely precious, extremely high-ranking and supremely meritorious is often very brief and little. This is the principle of nature. This time is also highly meritorious. It is, therefore, brief. Hence, such a thing is always kept concealed or hidden and its achievement entails great endeavor and efforts. Therefore, its time or hour was kept secret. Blessed are those who have the good fortune or catching these sorts of precious hours! And this is the similitude. So let the workers work. And may Allah help us to do what He loves and what He is pleased with!

In other narrations of the same Hadith, the Messenger ﷺ illustrated how brief the time lasts by placing his finger-tip at the middle of his small finger and "he was reducing it" and "lessening it". See Fath Al-Bârī
