Does not Praying make you a kafir?
« on: May 18, 2018, 08:26:33 PM »
As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers and sisters in Islam,

If one doesn't believe in Praying, like those who rejected Zakat which caused the battles of apostates, then he/she becomes a disbeliever.

If one is lazy, or physically tired and wouldn't Pray because he/she doesn't want to Pray a nonsensical Prayer, then he/she would not be an infidel.  Here is the proof:

‏29:45 اتل مااوحي اليك من الكتاب واقم الصلاة ان الصلاة تنهى عن الفحشاء والمنكر ولذكر الله اكبر والله يعلم ماتصنعون

[029:045]  Recite that which hath been inspired in thee of the Scripture, and establish worship. Lo! worship preserveth from lewdness and iniquity, but verily remembrance of Allah is more important ولذكر الله اكبر. And Allah knoweth what ye do.

Notice in this Noble Verse Allah Almighty Commanded the Muslims to establish Prayer.  But the Almighty finished the Noble Verse by saying that the remembrance of Allah is the greatest thing to do.  The context here says that remembering Allah Almighty and Glorifying Him is greater than Prayer itself

Therefore, one who does not Pray due to physical limitations would not be an infidel.  I know there is a Hadith that says "The one who leaves Salat (Prayer) is a kafir (infidel)".  The problem with such too-general Hadiths and the cults that abuse them is that they do not reveal the details.  They're too general and too open that it is easy to use them to condemn all or most Muslims by the wholesale.  This is completely wrong and shows a great deal of ignorance in Islam.

We all must Pray:

Please do not use this post as an excuse to further abuse your neglect of Prayer.  I declare my innocence before Allah Almighty from all such people.  I also seek refuge in Allah from all laziness and satan.  Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, used to make a similar dua.  We all must Pray to Allah Almighty.  Allah Almighty Said:

[051:056]  I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me.

I myself do my Salat walhamdulillah.  But I just wanted to respond to those who might use such Hadiths as clubs to beat other Muslims' faiths and to belittle them and to eventually apostatize them.
