He Never Prays Fajr On Time - Islamweb. by Taamas111 (m): 4:00pm on January 12

A person who prays four times in Masjid but
never wakes up for Fajr and prays his Fajr
prayer at Thuhr time daily. What is the
Hukm on this kind of person and how can I
advice him since he lives with me?

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

Allah Says (which means): { Indeed, prayer
has been decreed upon the believers a
decree of specified times}[Quran 4:103] i.e.
they have to be performed in their fixed
times. Whoever performs them after having
passed the prescribed limited time without
any acceptable Islamic reason he is negligent
of the prayers.

Allah Says about those who neglect their
prayers, (which means): { But there came
after them successors [i.e. later generations]
who neglected prayer and pursued desires;
so they are going to meet evil. }[Quran 19:59]
Neglecting here means, delaying prayers
from their prescribed fixed times, it is also
said that it refer to giving up the prayers.
Allah Says (which means): { So woe to those
who pray. Those who are heedless of their
prayer }[Quran 107:4-5] This ruling implies
delaying prayer from their prescribed fixed
times without any Islamicly valid reason due
to laziness.
Not waking up for the dawn prayer and
delaying it without any Islamicly valid reason
is a among the major great sins. Sleeping
through this prayer perpetually is not a
religiously valid excuse, rather it is one of
the characteristic of hypocrites. The Prophet
said: "There is no prayers more difficult
for hypocrites (to perform) than the dawn
and the night prayer. But had they known
what is in them (the great reward of these
prayers) they would have come to them
(these two prayers) even crawling (if they
cannot walk). " [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Therefore, a Muslim has to fear Allah and
should perform the dawn prayer at it fixed
time. He has to use all possible means that
are helpful in this matter such as seeking
Allah's help at first, then going to bed early,
using an alarm, etc. There is no harm in
asking someone to wake him up for the
prayer. If one uses such means probably, he
will wake up for the prayer, Allah Willing. If
we suppose that after doing his best, one
cannot wake up once or twice due to deep
sleep, then he will be excused for the saying
of the Prophet said: "There is no
negligence in sleeping." [Al-Bukhari and
Muslim] As for delaying prayer habitually on
the plea of sleep is nothing but laziness,
which is not a valid excuse in Islam rather it
is among the characteristics of hypocrites.
So, one should keep away from that.

Finally, you have to exhort your friend,
remind him of Allah and give him the books
and cassettes that highlight the importance
of the prayers and the dangers of giving it

Allah Knows best.
