Fatwa ID: 04670
Answered by: Mufti Maruf Ahmed
Does Allah accept good deeds like giving charity, saying zikr and durood Shareef from a person who doesn’t pray 5 times per day? I read if you don’t pray your 5 times fardh salah your good deeds don’t get accepted.
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Allah Ta’ala will accept the good deed of a believer if performed with sincerity.
Allah Ta’ala says: “Allah accepts only from the God-fearing.” (5:27)
As Salah is the most important act of worship, there is no doubt that a true God-fearing person would not abandon or be irregular in performing Salah.
Only Allah knows best.
