“As harsh as this may sound, and as politically incorrect as it may be, I have full confidence and no hesitation in stating that whoever claims to be a Muslim, acknowledges Allāh as His Maker and Provider, and has an interest in being safe on the Day of Reckoning, yet still neglects the prayer, then that person is an evil person.”
