Minor sins between Friday Prayers will be forgiven

Abu Huraira (Radhiallahu anhu) reported:

Allah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) as saying:

“He who performed ablution well, then came to friday prayer, listened to the Khutbah (the sermon), kept silence all (his sins) between that time and the next friday would be forgiven with three days extra, and he who touched pebbles caused an interruption.”

(Sahih Muslim – Book #004 – Hadith #1868)

1. “If anyone performs ablution properly” means does it in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH), that is to say, one should not exceed the prescribed limits, nor should one use water extravagantly. One should wash every organ of the body involved in “Wudu”, at the most for three times. One should neither use water in excess of the need nor leave any of the organs unwashed or partly washed in Wudu’. This Hadith also makes it evident that it is more meritorious to perform Wudu’ at home.

2.Sins of ten days are pardoned because every virtue has at least ten-times reward. Here sins means minor sins as the major ones are not forgiven without sincere repentance nor are Huquq-ul-`Ibad i.e., (rights of people) forgiven without compensation.

3.One should listen to the Khutbah quietly with full attention. One must avoid toying with anything (such as straws, one’s watch, etc.) as this is a useless exercise, which will doubtlessly deprive one of the Friday reward.
