The jury will return to court on Monday.
The jury is "near to making a decision" in the case after two hours of discussion, but ultimately asked the judge to resume deliberations next week.
Thirty people were injured last year when police say a bomb Rahimi planted went off on 23rd Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues.
Rahimi also allegedly left another one that didn't explode four blocks north, and a third in New Jersey, which didn't hurt anyone.
Rahimi was arrested days later after a shootout with police.
He has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him.
