The virtue of taking a bath on Friday

Question

Is this Hadith reliable?

Sayyiduna Abu Umamah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Taking bath on Friday takes out sins from the hair roots [i.e. removes minor sins completely].”

 

Answer

Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith.

(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 7996)

 

‘Allamah Mundhiri and ‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahumallah) have declared the narrators reliable (thiqat).

(Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 496, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 2 pg. 174)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
