Some people can not perform prayers
because Satan incites them. One
says to himself 'I have bad things
while performing prayers'. What is
the solution?

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.

The prayer is the greatest pillar of
Islam after the two declarations of
faith. Abandoning the prayers
according to many scholars
takes the person out of the fold of
Islam. Some people imagine that
there are no benefits in performing
the prayers while persisting in
committing some sins, and think that
a sinner could not establish the
prayers. This imagination is wrong
and it is just the lure of the devil to
mislead human beings. As long as a
person prays, he is considered a
Muslim even if he persists in
committing sins. Whoever dies while
having committed sins, if Allah wills
to forgive him, He will forgive him,
and if Allah wills to punish him, He
will punish him for the sins that he
committed and then He will bring
him out of the Hellfire because of his
belief and because of the intercession
of righteous people of his family.
As regards a person who dies as a
disbeliever [as a non-Muslim], then
there is no way for him to be
forgiven by Allah, Allah Says (which
means): {God does not forgive (the sin
of) joining other gods with Him; but
He forgives whom He pleases other
sins than this. }[Quran 4:116]. Allah
further Says (which means): {Indeed,
those who disbelieve and die while they
are disbelievers, never would the
[whole] capacity of the earth in gold
be accepted from one of them if he
would [seek to] ransom himself with
it. For those there will be a painful
punishment, and they will have no
helpers. }[Quran 3:91]. Therefore,
whoever dies while having performed
the prayers is a Muslim even if he
had committed sins, and he is better
than the one who dies while having
abandoned the prayers.

In addition to this, the prayers are a
means of having many sins wiped
out. A person who is sinful but
performs the prayer, his prayers will
wipe out many of his sins. The
Prophet said: " If there was a
river at the door of anyone of you and
he took a bath in it five times a day,
would you notice any dirt on him?"
They [the companions] said, "Not a
trace of dirt would be left." The
Prophet then said: "That is the
example of the five prayers with which
Allah wipes out evil deeds. " [Al-
Bukhari and Muslim] Besides, the
Prophet said: "There is no Muslim
who purifies himself as Allah
prescribed him to do, and performs
these five daily prayers except that
Allah wipes out the sins that he had
committed between them. " [Muslim]
Hence, the prayers wipe out the sins,
so how come that a person says: 'How
can I perform the prayers while I am

Allah Knows best.
