Missing the Fajr prayer and sleeping during its time instead of praying it, is from the greatest of the prohibited acts, and from the acts of the hypocrites.
We see some people when they need to break [away from] their prayer [short] for some emergency, or to join [the congregation when] the imaam [is about to start the prayer], or if they have invalidated their prayer – they do the tasleem. So is this act [of theirs] correct, or will the intention [to terminate the prayer] suffice?
We see many people who only pray during Ramadhaan, and when Ramadhaan ends, they abandon the masaajid. So what do you say to these people [O] noble Shaykh, and may Allaah reward you with good?
What is the ruling regarding the one who fasts [the month of] Ramadhaan, whilst he has abandoned the prayer?
«There is no salaah for the one whose nose did not touch the ground, [and whose] forehead did not touch [the ground either].»
