He does not pray, but fasts during Ramadhaan

Reference: http://mufti.af.org.sa/ar/content/حكم-من-صام-وهو-تارك-للصلاة

Question: What is the ruling regarding the one who fasts [the month of] Ramadhaan, whilst he has abandoned the prayer?

Response: The prayer is the most important pillar of Islaam after tawheed. So whoever does not pray, then I fear his fast will not be accepted. That is because a group from amongst the people of knowledge are of the opinion that abandoning prayer is disbelief, and therefore believe the fast [of Ramadhaan] is not accepted from the one who does not pray, [because] prayer is more important [in rank] than the fast [of Ramadhaan].

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
