Valuation of men without prayer

The holy book of Quran and many other traditions have given their opinion regarding a person who doesn’t offer pray or who ignores it. We’ll mention just some of them.

“ O you who have believed, take not those who have taken your religion in ridicule and amusement among the ones who were given the Scripture before you nor the disbelievers as allies. And fear Allah, if you should [truly] be believers. (57) And when you call to prayer, they take it in ridicule and amusement. That is because they are a people who do not use reason. (58) Say, "O People of the Scripture, do you resent us except [for the fact] that we have believed in Allah and what was revealed to us and what was revealed before and because most of you are defiantly disobedient?" (59) Say, "Shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that as penalty from Allah? [It is that of] those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs and slaves of Taught. Those are worse in position and further astray from the sound way."[1]

In the above verses people who don’t offer prayers, are cursed and disfavored from God, and they are promised to be punished on the Day of Judgment.

But there came after them successors who neglected prayer and pursued desires; so they are going to meet evil[2]

 [Who will be] in gardens, questioning each other (40) About the criminals, (41) [And asking them], "What put you into Saqar?" (42) They will say, "We were not of those who prayed, (43) Nor did we used to feed the poor. (44) And we used to enter into vain discourse with those who engaged [in it], (45) And we used to deny the Day of Recompense.[3]

Hazrate Imam Sadiq (A.S) has quoted from the prophet (peace be upon him) that he stated: whoever ignore prayer, by oath of God he’ll not get access to meet me at Kousar Pool (Houdz Kousar).[4]  

Imam Jafer Sadiq (A.S) has quoted again from the prophet (peace be upon him) that he stated: Devil (satan) is afraid and scream until the people offer their five times prayers on time, but when the people leave or ignore their prayer devil easily drive them crazy and take them to all evil acts.[5]

The prophet (peace be upon him) stated:

لاسهم في الاسلام لمن لا صلوة له. [6]

Whoever doesn’t offer his prayer, doesn’t have any share in Islam.

And he stated:

لكي شيء آفة و آفة الدين ترك الصلوة[7]

There is fall for everything which collapses it, and fall of religion is ignoring prayer
