1. The one who stops performing As-Ṣalāh due to denying its obligation:
If he is ignorant about the issue, then he is informed. Subsequently if he persists on rejecting its
obligation, he is a disbeliever, belying Allah Almighty His Messenger (may the peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him) and the consensus of the Muslims.

2. The one who stops performing prayer out of laziness:
Whosoever stops performing As-Ṣalāh intentionally out of laziness has disbelieved. It is
upon the ruler to order him to perform As-Ṣalāh , and advise him to repent from this for three days.
Subsequently if he repents and returns to making the As-Ṣalāh , he is spared. If he does not return to
prayer he is killed for apostasy. This in accordance with the Prophet’s (may the peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him)statement: “The covenant which is between us and them (the disbelievers) is the
prayer; so whosoever leaves it has disbelieved.”(1) Also his saying: “Indeed between a man and shirk and
kufr is stopping of performing As-Ṣalāh
