Friday weekend

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who was then Prime Minister, said, it was not against Islamic teachings to work on a Friday, as Muslims were given extra time during lunch break to enable them to perform Friday prayers.
Mahathir was quoted saying; "It is easier to perform Friday prayers as a congregation and return to work afterwards. We have seen some Muslims who used the rest day (then Friday) to take their families out and miss Friday prayers."
