Tearing kriah on Friday after midday


Some mention a custom of refraining from tearing "kriah" upon seeing the Temple Mount on Friday after midday. There does not seem to be any legal basis for this custom, but perhaps it could be justified if tearing "kriah" would increase one's pain into Shabbat.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:37:2)

Have a great day,
