Missed Friday Prayer
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Dear and beloved brother in Islam, firstly, the attendance to the Friday Jumuah sermon and prayer is obligatory only for the males in Shariah, and voluntary for the females.
Secondly, the Friday mid-day Jumua prayers are not like the other prayersbut one is guided time and time again to prepare well in advance of this prayerthus not attending the obligatory Friday Jumuah sermon and prayer only because ones clothes are impure would be an absolutely unacceptable excuse!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 62 Surah Jumua verses 9-10:
9 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 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.

Allah (saws) said: "The best day on which the sun rises is Friday. [On
Friday] Adam was created, and on that day he entered Paradise, and on that day

Your Question: Whats the way to apologise to allah for this?

If one has been unfortunate enough to miss attending the obligatory Friday mid-day prayer in congregation, one should immediately turn to their Lord Most Gracious in sincere repentance for the negligence of their obligatory duty.and the atonement for missing the Jumuah prayers is to offer a normal four-rakah dhuhr prayer.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
