There are many deeds being done by humans in this world. But the first deed that will be counted by Allah on the Day of Judgment is salah (prayer). If someone’s prayer is good, then he is safe and good to go. If his prayer is bad, he will be damned and perish.
In a hadith from Abu Hurairah (may Allah blesses him), that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) says,
إِنَّ أَوَّلَ مَا يُحَاسَبُ بِهِ الْعَبْدُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مِنْ عَمَلِهِ صَلَاتُهُ فَإِنْ صَلُحَتْ فَقَدْ أَفْلَحَ وَأَنْجَحَ وَإِنْ فَسَدَتْ فَقَدْ خَابَ وَخَسِرَ فَإِنْ انْتَقَصَ مِنْ فَرِيضَتِهِ شَيْءٌ قَالَ الرَّبُّ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ انْظُرُوا هَلْ لِعَبْدِي مِنْ تَطَوُّعٍ فَيُكَمَّلَ بِهَا مَا انْتَقَصَ مِنْ الْفَرِيضَةِ ثُمَّ يَكُونُ سَائِرُ عَمَلِهِ عَلَى ذَلِكَ
“The first of man’s deeds for which he will be called to account on the Day of Resurrection will be Salat. If it is found to be perfect, he will be safe and successful; but if it is incomplete, he will be unfortunate and a loser. If any shortcoming is found in the obligatory Salat, the Glorious and Exalted Rubb will command to see whether His slave has offered any voluntary Salat so that the obligatory Salat may be made up by it. Then the rest of his actions will be treated in the same manner” [Sunan al-Tirmidhi: 413].
Don’t leave salah!
When someone leaves salah, he doesn’t perform it, it could makes him out of Islam. This is serious matter.
In a hadith from Jabir ibn Abdillah (may Allah blesses him), that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) says,
“The barrier between a person and shirk and kufr is to leave salah (prayer)” [Sahih Muslim: 82].
O Muslims, let’s be more serious about paying attention and maintaining our prayers and also those closest to us. Do not let us and those closest to us leave the prayers that are required of Allah. Because of the heavy consequences for people who leave prayer.
