Whoever Neglects Prayer


Today, I share a hadith with the kids about:

Whoever Neglects Prayer
Allah will send Fifteen Punishments upon Him
[Transmitted by Sahih Bukhari]

The Prophet Muhammad (sal-allahu- alleihi-wasallam ) said:
The one who disdains the prayers will receive fifteen punishments from Allah. Six punishments in this lifetime, Three while dying , Three in the grave & Three on the Day of Judgment.

The Six Punishments of Life:

1. Allah takes away blessings from his age (makes his life misfortunate).

2. Allah does not accept his Dua.

3. Allah erases the features of good people from his face.

4. He will be detested by all creatures on earth.

5. Allah does not award him for his good deeds.

6. He will not be included in the Dua of good people.

The Three Punishments while Dying:

1. He dies humiliated.

2. He dies hungry.

3. He dies thirsty. Even if he drinks the water of all seas he will still be thirsty.

The Punishments in the Grave:

1. Allah tightens his grave until his chest ribs come over each other.

2. Allah pours on him fire with embers.

3. Allah sets on him a snake called "the brave", "the bold" which hits Him from morning until afternoon for leaving Fajr prayer, from the afternoon until Asr for leaving Dhuhr prayer and so on. With each strike he sinks 70 yards under the ground.

The Three Punishments on the Day of Judgment:

1. Allah sends who would accompany him to hell pulling him on the face.

2. Allah gives him an angry look that makes the flesh of his face fall down.

3. Allah judges him strictly and orders him to be thrown in hell.
