“The one who takes prayer light is not of me. No, by Allah, such a person will not reach the Haud, Pound of abundant."[Man-La-Yahduruhul-Faghih, vol. 1, p. 206]The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) said:“At the (appointed) time of every prayer (salat), I hear a caller who calls and says: ` O children of Adam! Keep up prayers in order to extinguish the fire you have lit against yourselves (by committing sins)."[Mustadrak-ul-Wasa'il, vol. 3, p. 102]The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) said:“The worship done by the one who earns his living on unlawful money is similar to a building constructed upon sand."[Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 84, p. 258]“On the Reckoning Day, the First thing that a servant will be reckoned for is the prayer; therefore, if it is accepted, the rest (good actions) will be accepted, too, (otherwise, his other good deeds will not avail him)."[Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 7, p. 267](At the last moments of his life, Imam Sadiq (A.S.) called his relations and companions and told them):

Establishing regular prayers. 5. Giving alms. 6. Fasting in Ramadan. 7. Performing the Pilgrimage (Hajj) to the Sacred House. 8. Kindness to the lovers of Allah. 9. Detachment from the enemies of Allah. 10. And, avoiding any alcoholic beverage."[Khisal by Saduq, p. 432]Imam Sadiq (A.S.) said that Allah (S.W.T) in a revelation told Moses, the son of `Imran (a.s):“O’ you son of ` Imran! Those who only claim that they love Me, tell a lie, for when the night falls they neglect Me."[Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 13, p. 329]
