عن جابر -رضي الله عنه- قال: قال رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم-: «مَثَلُ الصَّلَوَاتِ الخَمْسِ كَمَثَلِ نَهْرٍ جَارٍ غَمْرٍ على بَابِ أَحَدِكُمْ يَغْتَسِلُ مِنْهُ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ خَمْسَ مَرَّاتٍ». وعن أبي هريرة -رضي الله عنه- قال: سمعت رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- يقول: «أَرَأَيْتُمْ لو أَنَّ نَهْرًا بِبَابِ أَحَدِكُمْ يَغْتَسِلُ منه كُلَّ يَوْمٍ خَمْسَ مَرَّاتٍ، هَلْ يَبْقَى مِنْ دَرَنِهِ. شَيْءٌ؟» قالوا: لا يَبْقَى مِنْ دَرَنِهِ شَيْءٌ، قال: «فَذَلِكَ مَثَلُ الصَّلَوَاتِ الخَمْسِ يَمْحُو اللهُ بِهِنَّ الخَطَايَا».
[صحيح.] - [حديث جابر -رضي الله عنه-: رواه مسلم. حديث أبي هريرة -رضي الله عنه-: متفق عليه.]

Jābir (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "The five prayers are like a great river running by your door in which you wash five times every day." Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) say: "What if there was a river at the door of anyone of you wherein he takes a bath five times daily, would there remain any of his filth?" They said: "Nothing of his filth would remain." He said: "This is similar to the five prayers by means of which Allah erases sins."
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Muslim - Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Explanation

The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) likened abstract filth to physical filth. Just as bathing five times a day removes filth, praying five times a day eliminates sins.
