Hadith Explanation

Minimum Bathing

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “It is obligatory upon every adult youth to take a bath on Friday and to brush their teeth and use perfume if available.” [Bukhari]

Cleanliness has been equated with a half of Eeman. We have to make sure that we are clean at least five times daily, i.e. before each prayer. This hadith states the minimum requirement for thorough bathing at once a week. At least every Friday, every physically adult Muslim must labour to clean their hair, body, teeth and use (oil-based) perfume if they have it.
