The Holy Qur'an says, "Then woe to those prayer performers. Who are heedless of their prayers (Part 30, Surah Ma-oon, verse 4-5)

My Beloved Prophet sallalaho alaihe wasallam's beloved devotees! Hypocrites (munafiq) were very lazy about their prayers. That is because they had apparently accepted Islam but did not believe in Allah Ta'ala or the day of judgement in their hearts. There was no importance given to prayer by them, if they prayed, they prayed. If they missed it, it was no big deal to them. If they prayed they were not expecting any reward for it. If they missed it there was no fear of any reprisal or punishment. If they were amongst people they would pray. If they were on their own they would not bother, or would not pray it at the correct times. They would sit around swapping stories, and when the time would almost be up, they would stand, move up and down quickly a few times and claim that they had prayed. They would not pray with the sincerity or humility that it should be prayed with. They would never truly busy themselves in worship or the remembrance of Allah Ta'ala.

My Beloved Prophet sallalaho alaihe wasallam's beloved devotees! These are all forms of carelessness, and a true believer should save himself from all of them.

The author of Rooh Ul Bayaan says that this verse refers to the hypocrites that do not pray and the Muslims that are transgressors (fasiq).

In the verse Allah Ta'ala says that there is a place called "Vail" for people that are careless about their prayers. In the blessed Hadith it states that "Vail" is a valley in hell. If all the mountains of the world were put in there, they would all melt because of its intensity and heat. This valley is for those that are lazy about their prayers and do not pray at the correct times.

My Beloved Prophet sallalaho alaihe wasallam's beloved devotees! Let us make sincere repentance that we will not be lazy with our prayers in the future and will pray with the congregations, Insha Allah. May Allah Ta'ala guide us all to pray at the correct times. Aameen
