Narrated Abu Huraira, may Allah be pleased with him, I heard Allah's Apostle, may Allah bless and grant him peace, saying:- "IF THERE WAS A RIVER AT THE DOOR OF ANYONE OF YOU AND HE TOOK A BATH IN IT 5 TIMES A DAY, WOULD YOU NOTICE ANY DIRT ON HIM?". They said, "NOT A TRACE OF DIRT WOULD BE LEFT". The Prophet, peace be upon him, added:- "THAT IS THE EXAMPLE OF THE 5 PRAYERS WITH WHICH ALLAH BLOTS OUT (annuls)EVIL DEEDS".
[Bukhari, Book 10, No.506]
In yet another Hadith, the Prophet, peace be upon him, was quoted saying:-- "THE FIRST MATTER THAT THE SLAVE WILL BE BROUGHT TO ACCOUNT FOR ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT IS THE PRAYER. IF IT IS SOUND, THEN THE REST OF HIS DEEDS WILL BE SOUND. AND IF IT IS BAD, THEN THE REST OF HIS DEEDS WILL BE BAD". [At-Tabarani].
It is sad, however, to note that many Muslims today do not accord this important second pillar of Islam (Sallah) the importance and priority it deserves. You hear some say 'I am busy' now or 'I have no time' to pray now (at its stated time).. I will pray later.
You/We must drop this attitude and say our Prayers on time and preferably in congregation, noting that what distinguishes us, Believers, from Munafiqs (hypocrites), is the Sallah...the 5 daily prayers.

Salam, Salah is a basic pillar of Islam. Our Holy Prophet (PBUH) if it is dropped then whole religion is dropped. Therefore we must adopt the habit of Salah five times a day on their appropriate time. May Allah Almighty give ability to offer Salah on time Aamin. JazakAllah Khair.
