QA33

Question

Assallamu allaykum warohmotullah wabarokatuhu….
Can someone say d tasleem to d one who doesn’t pray at all?

Answer

Wa alaykum salam wa rahmatullaah.
Scholars differ concering his Islam.
However, what is more preponderant with the Sahaabah, according to Shaqeeq, is that he is not a Muslim.
One should strive to encourage and admonish him but should not extend tasleem to him.

He should be shown the hadeeth of the Prophet that says:” …whoever abandon salaat has indeed forsaken Islam”
