Hadith Explanation

Presenting Oneself in the King’s Court

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Allah has made five prayers obligatory: whoever performs their ablution well and prays them in their time, completing the bowing, the humility, and the awe that is due in them, has entered a solemn pact with Allah to forgive him. And whoever does not, has no pact with Allah: should he want, He will forgive him, and should He want, He will torment him.” [Abu Dawud]

Prayer is Allah’s call, the invitation from the King of kings to attend His court. Whoever responds to the invitation, having made themselves presentable with ablution and clean clothes, presents themselves at the invited time, fulfills the etiquettes of courtly behaviour, and adopts the fitting demeanour, will be entitled to Allah’s Mercy and Forgiveness.

Would anyone ignore an invitation from a generous, powerful, kind, and beneficient president? Whoever does so, not considering it worthy of his time, has no reason to be considered worthy of the president’s time or favours.

Thus, the case of whoever does not pray, i.e. does not present himself in Allah’s court, is for Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) to decide.
