Hadith ~ Abandonment of the prayer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Narrated Jaber (APH): ‘The Prophet (SAWS) said: “Abandonment of the prayer disconnects man from faith (and attributes him to unbelief).'” (At-Termizi) The other version has the words: “Abandonment of the prayer attributes man to unbelief or polytheism.”

Narrated Borayda (APH): ‘The Messenger of Allah (SAWS) said: “The vow (religious commitment) that is between us and them (the hypocrites) is the prayer. He that abandons it has committed disbelief.'” (At-Termizi)

Narrated Abdullah ibn Shaqeeq Al-Oqayli (APH): ‘The companions of Muhammad (SAWS) did not consider abandonment on anything as disbelief, except (the abandonment of) the prayer.’ (At-Termizi)

SAWS: May Allah exalt his mention and protect him from imperfection
APH: may Allah be pleased with him
