Does not Praying make you a kafir?
..... If one doesn't believe in Praying, like those who rejected Zakat which caused the battles of apostates, then he/she becomes a disbeliever.
If one is lazy, or physically tired and wouldn't Pray because he/she doesn't want to Pray a nonsensical Prayer, then he/she would not be an infidel. Here is the proof:
29:45 اتل مااوحي اليك من الكتاب واقم الصلاة ان الصلاة تنهى عن الفحشاء والمنكر ولذكر الله اكبر والله يعلم ماتصنعون
[029:045] Recite that which hath been inspired in thee of the Scripture, and establish worship. Lo! worship preserveth from lewdness and iniquity, but verily remembrance of Allah is more important ولذكر الله اكبر. And Allah knoweth what ye do.
Notice in this Noble Verse Allah Almighty Commanded the Muslims to establish Prayer. But the Almighty finished the Noble Verse by saying that the remembrance of Allah is the greatest thing to do. The context here says that remembering Allah Almighty and Glorifying Him is greater than Prayer itself.
Therefore, one who does not Pray due to physical limitations would not be an infidel. I know there is a Hadith that says "The one who leaves Salat (Prayer) is a kafir (infidel)". The problem with such too-general Hadiths and the cults that abuse them is that they do not reveal the details. They're too general and too open that it is easy to use them to condemn all or most Muslims by the wholesale. This is completely wrong and shows a great deal of ignorance in Islam.
We all must Pray:
Please do not use this post as an excuse to further abuse your neglect of Prayer. I declare my innocence before Allah Almighty from all such people. I also seek refuge in Allah from all laziness and satan. Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, used to make a similar dua. We all must Pray to Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty Said:
[051:056] I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me.
I myself do my Salat walhamdulillah. But I just wanted to respond to those who might use such Hadiths as clubs to beat other Muslims' faiths and to belittle them and to eventually apostatize them.
Ask me any question section.
Allah, Islam, Quran, Muhammad questions and answers.
What is the place of Jews, Christians and non-Muslims in Islam.
How does a Muslim get to Heaven, saved, reach a state of perfect harmony with God?
I liked your concept of God in Islam and that man can directly have fellowship with God. But how does God stand the sin in man ? How does God see the sin between man and man?
What is the Wisdom of Islam?
The Mercy of Allah Almighty on Mankind, and our age of 40 wisdom in Islam.
Is our destiny pre-determined by GOD? Does GOD choose who is evil and who is good? How come GOD didn't make all of us good if He is the "Most Merciful" and "Most Just"?
The authors of the New Testament had conflicts (hostility) with each others.
Quran Miracle: The Jews' and Christians' scribes changed and still change the Words. Proven with images, text and videos from their corrupt bible and books! See how they removed words and altered words.
MORE LIES ON GOD: Rebuttal to Jochen Katz on FOX News' lying on their motto (Balanced Lies Rebuttal).
Who was the sacrificed son? Isaac or Ishmael? Even the altered Bible thoroughly supports that it was Ishmael  in many passages. And in Islam there is no "El" (God) in names as in Ishmael or Gabriel in Hebrew? Is the GOD of Islam different? Allah Almighty allowed for His Holy Name to be shortened (as "El" in Ishmael, and Lillah for Li-Allah in the Quran, as in Alhamdulillah) in both Islam and Judaism .
Made to be prostitutes by GOD: In 2 Samuel 12:7-12, King David's wives were turned into ***** prostitutes by GOD Almighty  as a punishment for David's sins with Bathsheba. This means that GOD Almighty can create custom Laws for punishment even if they fully contradict GOD Almighty's Moral Code on morality and chastity. Also, seduction and RAPING of virgins isn't a physically punishable crime in the Bible. See Deuteronomy 22:25-29, Exodus 22:16-17.
