Questioner: This [questioner] asks for guidance and advice for the one that is lax and lazy concerning the obligatory prayer, and the dangers of this upon the religion of the servant?

Mufti Abdul-Azīz Āl us-Shaykh: There is no doubt that leaving off the prayer [in totality] is disbelief:

“What has caused you to enter Hell?” They will say: “We were not of those who used to offer their Salât (prayers).” [Al-Muddaththir 74:42-43]

“Then, there has succeeded them a posterity who have given up As-Salât (the prayers) and have followed lusts. So they will be thrown in Hell.” [Maryam 19:59]

We ask Allah for safety
