The Friday Ghusl (Hadith No. 817)


Salam,
Bismillah.

Volume 1, Book 12, Number 817:
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:
The Prophet said, "Ghusl (taking a bath) on Friday is compulsory for every Muslim reaching the age of puberty."

Fuqahaa' (experts in Islamic jurisprudence) say it's mustahabb (recommended) to do ghusl on Fridays.
As for the question about women's doing ghusl on Fridays, read this.


Do read about some other virtues of Friday. :)
Wassalam.
