Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ narrates that the Prophet of Rahmah, the Intercessor of Ummah صلی اللہ تعالٰی علیہ والہ وسلم said, ‘The five daily Salah and Sala-tul-Jumu’ah compensate for sins till the next Friday, and Ramadan compensates for sins until the next Ramadan, provided that the major sins are avoided.’ (Sahih Muslim, pp. 144, Hadis 233)
