Bathing (Ghusl): Purity, a Necessity for Prayers

Posted on December 6, 2009


Volume 001 :: Book 005 (Bathing (Ghusl)) :: Hadith 274
Narrated By Abu Huraira :
Once the call (Iqama) for the prayer was announced and the rows were straightened. Allah’s Apostle came out; and when he stood up at his Musalla, he remembered that he was Junub. Then he ordered us to stay at our places and went to take a bath and then returned with water dropping from his head. He said, “Allahu-Akbar”, and we all offered the prayer with him.
