What is the ruling on the Salah


A: First: We advise you to continue being mindful of Allah and to remain steadfast on the path of righteousness. You should also continue counseling your family with wisdom and fair preaching while, following the example of the Prophet, patiently enduring the hardships you may suffer and expecting the reward from Allah. Second: A person who intentionally neglects Salah due to sleep or is repeatedly awakened to perform it or performs it after its due time has elapsed is the same as a person who abandons Salah intentionally. The same is true of a person who neglects waking up for prayer time and continues to sleep until the due time has elapsed. It is authentically reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: The covenant that distinguishes between us and them (the disbelievers) is Salah. Anyone who abandons it has committed Kufr (disbelief). In another authentic Hadith the Prophet (peace be upon him) is reported to have said: Between a servant and Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship) and Kufr is abandoning Salah. (Part No. 6; Page No. 17) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
