If he took a bath five times a day, would you notice any dirt on him?

389. Narrated Aboo Huraira (radhi Allaahu anhu) : I heard Allaah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying,

“If there was a river at the door of anyone of you and he took a bath in it five times a day, would you notice any dirt on him?” They said, “Not a trace of dirt would be left.” The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) added, “That is the example of the five Salaat (prayers) with which Allaah blots our (annuls) evil deeds.”
