Whoever died while deliberately abandoning Salah is not a Muslim
Whoever died while deliberately abandoning Salah is not a Muslim and should not be buried in the graveyards of Muslims. The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
What makes one a disbeliever is the abandonment of prayers.
(Recorded by Imam
Whoever died while testifying that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, regularly establishing Salah, and committing no sins that are on contradiction of Islam, must not be buried in the cemeteries of the Kafirs (disbelievers). Rather, he should be transferred to either to his Muslim country or to the nearest Muslim graveyard where he is to be buried. (Part No. 7; Page No. 393) May Allah grant us success. May Allah's Peace and Blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and his Companions!
