⠀⠀💔Why don't you PRAY??💔Many Muslims do not pray or fulfil the conditions of the prayer, despite its importance. The purpose of prayer is to strengthen your relationship with your Creator; to be grateful for all His blessings; and to remind yourself of His Greatness. Just as the body requires physical needs, such as food and water, the soul requires spiritual needs, nourished by acts of worship, the most important of which is prayer. It could be that the body of a person is healthy but the person is spiritually dead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “The comparison of one who remembers Allah(The Creator) and one who does not, is like that of the living and the dead.” [Sahih Al-Bukhari]
Many Scholars of Islam hold the opinion that if you do not pray, you are a disbeliever, quoting the following hadith: “The covenant which distinguishes between us and them (i.e., between believers and disbelievers) is the prayer, and whoever neglects it has disbelieved.” [Ahmad, Tirmidhee] ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Common Excuses of the people who don't pray. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀No time (work, study, busy, etc):Pure and simple deception. You haven’t given prayers priority. Allah Ta’ala will bless your time and make you more effective, efficient and successful.
My heart is clean: Allah judges who has clean hearts, and He wants you to pray! Actions will reflect what is in your heart. No one has a cleaner heart than Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) who used to pray regularly.
My family/spouse/parents/friends prevent me: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “There is no obedience to anyone in disobedience to Allah.”. You will be judged alone.
I’m sinning too much: In time, your prayers will prevent you from committing these sins – just pray! You are sinning because you are not praying.
What excuse for abandoning prayer do you honestly have when you face your Lord on that difficult Day?
What excuse will you give your Creator, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, on Judgement Day?
May Allah forgive our shortcomings and keep us straight in His blessed path Ameen.
