Solat Is Must and Cannot Be left out
Solat means a Prayer which is must for every Muslim and one cannot argue with that. Its form may change according to the conditions either if not feeling well or a person is on a journey and so on. But during this instance it can be shorten but cannot be left over. It's an obligatory phenomena and one has to offer it whole heartedly. There is no excuse to leave obligatory Solat and remember one has to answer before Allah Rabbul Izzat for not performing regular Solat at its specific time. Offering Solat is a symbol of true Emman on Allah Tabaraq Watala. It symbolizes that a true Muslim has fear of Almighty God Allah who is the Creator of this Universe. Solat is one of the principles of Islam. Solat is a tradition of Prophets (Peace and Blessings upon Them And their Families). There is severe punishment for the person who purposely and deliberately leaves Solat for no reason.
These are the following ayaat from Quran:
"What led you into Hell-Fire? They will say; 'We were not of those who prayed;'
(The Noble Quran, 74:42-43)"
"So woe to the worshippers who are neglectful of their Prayers, those who (want but) to be seen (of men)
(The Noble Quran, 107:4-6)"
"Enjoin prayer on thy people, and be constant therein. We ask thee not to provide sustenance: We provide it for thee. But the (fruit of) the Hereafter is for Righteousness.
(The Noble Quran, 20:132)"
"The hypocrites--they think they are over-reaching Allah but He will over-reach them: When they stand up to Prayer, they stand without sincerity, to be seen of men, but little do they hold Allah in remembrance.
(The Noble Quran, 4:142)"
"Their eyes will be cast down--ignominy will cover them; seeing that they had been summoned aforetime to bow in adoration, while they were whole (and had refused).
(The Noble Quran, 68:43)"
May Allah Subhano Watala give us Hidayat to offer Solat at of five times Ameen
