Enormities: NOT PERFORMING THE PRAYER

This is another article in the chapter Enormities from the classical manual on Sharia called Reliance of the Traveller. The articles are posted one by one in the order they are given in the book.

p4.1 Allah Most High says:

(1) But a generation followed them who dissipated the prayer and pursued [their] lusts, and they shall find Ghayy [n: a “valley in hell” (Tafsir al-Jalalayn (y77), 402], save he who repents … ” (Koran 19:59–QO).

(2) “Woe to those who pray, unmindful of their prayers” (Koran 107:4-5).

(3) “‘What has brought you to hell?’ And they shall say, ‘We were not of those who prayed’ ” (Koran 74:42-43).

p4.2 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said,

“The agreement that is between us and them is the prayer: whoever leaves it has disbelieved [dis: w18.2-5].”
