Sunnah 1: Bath on Friday

April 16, 2010

The Prophet (pbuh) said:

“Anyone of you attending the Friday (prayers) should take a bath.” [Bukhari]

How to perform ghusl?

“The proper method of ghusl(ritual bath) involves the following steps:

1. Make the niyyah (intention) to perform ghusl for purification.

2. Wash your private parts thoroughly with water.

3. Perform wudu’ (ablution) except for washing of your feet, which you can do later while bathing the body.

4. Wash the entire body, starting with your head and the right side, followed by the left.

5. It is preferred that the whole body be washed three times. The minimum is once.

Having completed the above, you are considered eligible to perform the salah (prayer).”
