Abandons or neglects obligatory

The seventh question of Fatwa no. 6787 I read a Fatwa where you considered a person who unintentionally abandons Salah (Prayer) to be a disbeliever. If this person does not perform Salah, should we ask him to repent? What is the time frame for asking him to repent? What is the ruling if he does not repent?


A: According to the soundest opinion, the person who intentionally abandons prayer should be asked to repent for three days. If he does not repent, he should be killed by the command of the legal judge. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: ''If somebody (a Muslim) changes their religion, execute him." This Hadith was reported by Al-Bukhari in his Sahih from the Hadith of Ibn `Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
