I Don’t Pray: Will My Fasting Be Accepted?

MAMHTROSO.COM -- In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.


In this fatwa:

1- We are not the one to judge on such matters.

2- While it is a good thing that you are fasting, you may do well to start praying immediately and never be slack in doing so.


In responding to your question, Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states:

I am not the one to judge on such matters. What I can tell you is that Prayer is the first and foremost pillar of Islam. It is the true hallmark of a believer. That is why it was the first commandment issued to every single messenger of God from Adam to Muhammad.

When Allah spoke to the Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) he ordered him thus: “I am the one and only God: so worship Me and establish Prayer to celebrate My remembrance.” (Taha 20:14)

Therefore, while it is a good thing that you are fasting, you may do well to start praying immediately and never be slack in doing so. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Whoever observes the Five Daily Prayers, they would be a light, evidence of faith and means of salvation for him or her on the Day of Resurrection.”

On the other hand, if anyone neglects them, he would be deprived of light, evidence, and means of salvation; and would join the company of (the tyrants like) Pharoah, Hamaan and Ubyy ibn Khalaf on the Day of Resurrection.” (Ibn Hibban)

Therefore, I would urge you even as you are ready to observe the Fast, why not take the next step of establishing Prayer?

I would guarantee you that once you start doing so sincerely, you will experience inner peace and freedom from worry and anxiety.

I pray to Allah to honor us all to remember Him, thank Him, and worship Him in the best way.

Almighty Allah knows best.
