Salafs sayings

Abu ad-Dardaa narrated [Saheeh Muslim, No.6588]: The Messenger of Allaah said: «No believing servant supplicates for his brother behind his back (in his absence), except that the Angels say: "The same be for you too".»
al-Imaam an-Nawawee comments [Riyaadh as-Saaliheen #1494]: This hadeeth makes it evident that one who prays for someone in his absence also stands to benefit from it because the angel appointed for the task of praying for those who pray for others will pray for him, saying, "O Allaah! Grant him also the same which he has asked for others".

The Fasting of the One who has abandoned the Prayer

The Fasting of the One who has abandoned the Prayer



Noble Shaykh, what is the ruling upon the fasting of the one who has abandoned the prayer?

The fast of the one who has left the prayer is not correct and it is not accepted from him; because the one who abandons the prayer is a disbeliever, apostate; due to the Saying of Allaah the Most High:
But if they repent, perform the Prayer and give Zakaah, then they are your brothers in the Religion. (In this way) We explain the Ayaat in detail for a people who know. (At-Tawbah 9:11)

And the saying of the Prophet: 'The covenant between us and them (the hypocrites) is the prayer, so whomsoever abandons it then they have disbelieved'1

And the saying of the Prophet: 'Between and man and polytheism and disbelief is the abandonment of the prayer'2

And this was the general view of the Companions, if not their consensus.

Abdulllaah bin Shaqeeq rahimahullaah said - and he is from the well known Taabi'een -: 'The companions of the Prophet of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam never saw anything from amongst the actions, the abandonment of which is disbelief, except the prayer'.

And because of (all) this (evidence), if a person was to fast whilst he does not pray then his fast is rejected, not accepted and of no benefit for him with Allaah on the Day of Judgement. And we say to him, pray then fast, as for you fasting and not praying; then your fast is rejected from you, because the worship of the disbeliever is not accepted from him.
