Punishment for Neglecting Prayer

Punishment for Neglecting Prayer

Neglecting prayer (salah) is a big sin in Islam. Even some scholars consider who leaving the prayer and not doing it at all, he left Islam and not a Muslim anymore. This is serious matter.

Allah ﷻ says:

فَخَلَفَ مِن بَعْدِهِمْ خَلْفٌ أَضَاعُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَاتَّبَعُوا الشَّهَوَاتِ ۖ فَسَوْفَ يَلْقَوْنَ غَيًّا

“Then, there has succeeded them a posterity who have given up As-Salaah (the prayers) and have followed lusts. So they will be thrown in Hell” [Maryam, 19:59].

Also in a hadith from Jabir ibn Abdillah (may Allah blesses him), the Prophet ﷺ says:

بَيْن الرَّجل وَبَيْن الشِّرْكِ وَالكُفر ترْكُ الصَّلاةِ

The border between a person and the shirk and kufr is leaving (neglecting) the prayer” [Muslim: 82].

Let us pay more serious attention to our prayers. And also to the people closest to us. Do not let us and those closest to us leave the prayers that are obligated by Allah. Because of the serious consequences for people who leave prayer.
