Expiation for Past Sins (Al Hadith)

User Rating:  / 0

Hazrat Uthman bin `Affan رضی اللہ عنہ reported: I heard Messenger of Allah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم saying, "When the time for a prescribed Salat is due and a Muslim performs its Wudhu' and its acts of bowing and prostration properly, this Salat will be an expiation for his past sins, so long as he does not commit major sins, and this applies forever.'' [Muslim].

This Hadith stresses the importance of performing Salat with all its essential prerequisites, i.e., Wudhu' and concentration of mind. Such a Salat will expiate sins.
