Narrated Ibn `Umar (RA):

While `Umar bin Al-Khattab (RA) was standing and delivering the sermon on a Friday, one of the companions of the Prophet (ﷺ), who was one of the foremost Muhajirs (emigrants) came. `Umar (RA) said to him, "What is the time now?" He replied, "I was busy and could not go back to my house till I heard the Adhan. I did not perform more than the ablution." Thereupon `Umar (RA) said to him, "Did you perform only the ablution although you know that Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) used to order us to take a bath (on Fridays)?"

(Sahih al-Bukhari 878, Book 11, Hadith 3)
