From hadeeth(bukhari) it is fard to ghusl for Friday(Jumu-ah), which mathabs(Shafee-i, Hanafi, …) do this fard, and which consider this a sunnah ?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I told a friend that I read a string of ahadeeth saying that Ghusl on Fridays for Jumu-ah is compulsory. He was unsure and said that it’s sunnah. Could you clarify kanalah. Then which Math-habs follow this as fard, and which(if any) follow this as sunnah ?


According to all four Madhabs, Ghusl on the day of Jumu’ah is Sunnah, and not Fardh.

The Hadith you are referring to applied during the early period of Islam. Later, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) explained that the rule had changed, and that it is no longer Fardh. It, however, remains a Sunnah.
