Abu Hurairah (ra) said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)say: "Do you not consider that if there were a river outside the door of one of you in which he bathed five times a day, there would remain any dirt upon him?" They said: There would not remain any dirt upon him. He said: "That is the example of the five prayers. Allaah removes the sins by them."[1]

Abu Hurairah (ra) also said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: "The five prayers and and one Jumu'ah to the next are an expiation for what is between them, as long as no major sins are committed."[2]

Abu Sa'eed al-Khudree (ra) said that he heard the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) saying: "The five prayers are an expiation for what is between them." Then the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: "Do you not see if a man was working and there was between his house and the place of his work five rivers so that when he came to work and did whatever Allaah willed he became dirty and began to sweat, then washed himself every time he passed by a river that there would remain any dirt upon him? Thus is the prayer, every time he does an evil action, then supplicates and asks for forgiveness, he is forgiven for what he did."[3]

Abdullaah ibn Mas'ood (ra) said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: You will be burned, you will be burned4. So if you perform the morning prayer it will wash them away. Then you will be burned, you will be burned. So if you perform Dhuhr prayer it will wash them away. Then you will be burned, you will be burned. So if you perform the Asr prayer it will wash them away. Then you will be burned, you will be burned. So if you perform the Maghrib prayer it will wash them away. Then you will be burned you will be burned. So if you perform the Ishaa prayer it will wash them away. Then you sleep and nothing will be written against you until you awaken."[5]

Anas bin Maalik (ra) said: The Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: "To Allaah belongs an angel which calls at every prayer: O Children of Aadam! Stand and attend to the fires which you have set alight that you may extinguish them."[6]

Abdullaah ibn Mas'ood (ra) said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: "A caller is sent at the approach of every prayer and says: O Children of Aadam, stand and extinguish the fire you have kindled for yourselves. So they stand and their sins fall in front of them and are removed in front of them, then they pray and are forgiven for what was between them. Then they kindle a fire again and when the time for prayer is near the caller calls: O Children of Aadam, stand and extinguish the fire which you have kindled for yourselves. So they stand, purify themselves and perform the Dhuhr prayer and are forgiven for what they did between them. When the Asr prayer approaches the same thing occurs and when the Maghrib prayer approaches the same thing occurs and when the darkness comes the same thing occurs. They sleep while they have been forgiven. So one leaves at night in goodness and another in evil."[7]

Taariq ibn Shihaab said that he spent the night with Salmaan al-Faarsee (ra) to see how he strived (i.e. in worship). Taariq said: So he stood and prayed during the last part of the night. It was as if he (Taariq) did not actually see what he used to think (about Salmaan). So he mentioned that to Salmaan and he said: Safeguard these five prayers as they are an expiation for these wounds which (even) carnage/murder does not inflict.[8]

Amr ibn Marrah al-Juhainee (ra) said: A man came to the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and said: O Messenger of Allaah! Do you see that if I testify that there is none that deserves worship except Allaah alone and you are His Messenger, then perform the five prayers, give the zakah, fast the month of Ramadan and remain upon that, amongst whom will I be? He (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: "Amongs the truthful and the martyrs."[9]

Abu Uthmaan said: I was with Salmaan (ra) under a tree and he took a dry branch and began to shake it until its leaves fell to the ground. He said: O Abu Uthmaan! Will you not ask me why I am doing this? I said: Why are you doing this? He said: The Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) did the same to me while I was with him under a tree. He took a dry branch and began to shake it until all the leaves fell to the ground. Then he said: O Salmaan! Will you not ask me why I am doing this? So I said: And why are you doing this? He said: "Indeed (each time) the Muslim performs wudhoo and beautifies it, then performs the five prayers his sins fall from him jusst like these leaves have fallen" and then he recited the verse:

Establish the prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approaches of the night. Indeed the good deeds remove the evil deeds. This is the reminder for those who remember.[10]"[11]
