4) Not Performing the Prayer

Beliefs & Practices, Major Sins

Allah, the Most High, says,

But after them there followed a posterity who missed Prayers and followed after lusts soon, then, will they face destruction, except those who repent and believe, and work righteousness.” (Maryam: 59-60)

Commenting on the above verses (Ayat), Ibn ‘Abbas said,

“Allah’s statement, “Who missed Prayers does not mean that they did not perform it at all but rather they did not perform it in its due time.”
