Benefit: What Possibly Can Be Worse than Murder and Adultery?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

 Ibn al-Qayyim (رحمه الله) said: “Muslims agree that intentionally failing to pray a compulsory prayer is from the greatest of the major sins, and that this sin is worse than murder, adultery, stealing, plundering, and consuming alcohol, and that whoever does this is prone to Allāh’s anger, punishment, and humiliation in both this world and the next.”

قال: لا يختلف المسلمون أن ترك الصلاة المفروضة عمدا من أعظم الذنوب وأكبر الكبائر وأن إثمه عند الله أعظم من إثم قتل النفس وأخذ الأموال ومن إثم الزنا والسرقة وشرب الخمر وأنه متعرض لعقوبة الله وسخطه وخزيه في الدنيا والآخرة
