Farz Salah and its ruling

Farz Salah is the one which has been made obligatory for every adult Muslims male and female and there are total five times obligatory Salah in day and night.

Salah has been made obligatory and they must be offered at their specified times as Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran.

Holy Quran:

فَاِذَا قَضَیۡتُمُ الصَّلٰوۃَ فَاذۡکُرُوا اللّٰہَ قِیٰمًا وَّ قُعُوۡدًا وَّ عَلٰی جُنُوۡبِکُمۡ ۚ فَاِذَا اطۡمَاۡنَنۡتُمۡ فَاَقِیۡمُوا الصَّلٰوۃَ ۚ اِنَّ الصَّلٰوۃَ  کَانَتۡ عَلَی الۡمُؤۡمِنِیۡنَ  کِتٰبًا مَّوۡقُوۡتًا.


And when you have completed the prayer, remember Allah standing, sitting, or [lying] on your sides, but when you become secure, re-establish [regular] prayer. Indeed, prayer has been decreed upon the believers a decree of specified times. [1]

Another Aayah in the Holy Quran:

وَ اَقِمِ الصَّلٰوۃَ طَرَفَیِ النَّہَارِ وَ زُلَفًا مِّنَ الَّیۡلِ ؕ اِنَّ الۡحَسَنٰتِ یُذۡہِبۡنَ السَّیِّاٰتِ ؕ ذٰلِکَ  ذِکۡرٰی  لِلذّٰکِرِیۡنَ.ۚ


And establish prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approach of the night. Indeed, good deeds do away with misdeeds. That is a reminder for those who remember. [2]

عَنْ جَابِرٍ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ بَيْنَ الْكُفْرِ وَالإِيمَانِ تَرْكُ الصَّلاَةِ ‏”‏ ‏.


Narrated Jabir that:

The Prophet (PBUH) said, “Between disbelief and faith is abandoning the Salat.[3]

Hadith which tells us what is the difference between Islam and Kufr.

It was narrated from ‘Abdullah bin Buraidah that his father said that:

“The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, ‘The covenant that stands between us and them is the Salah; whoever abandons it, he has committed disbelief.'”[4]
