    There is no quantification of such punishment available in Quran or Hadith, but we find extreme condemnation for skipping Salah both in Quran and Hadith. Belief in the hereafter, prayer and charity, is the essence of the whole religion. According to the Quran, two things are needed to be a servant of Allah in the world: One is that the relationship of man with the Creator should be properly established. The second is that he should connect with the creation of Allah in the right way. The first thing is obtained from prayer, which is the first manifestation of love for Allah Almighty, and the second is from charity, which is the first manifestation of love for creation of Allah (i.e. fellow human beings).

    Quran Says:

    فِیۡ جَنّٰتٍ ۟ؕۛ یَتَسَآءَلُوۡنَ ﴿ۙ۴۰﴾ عَنِ الۡمُجۡرِمِیۡنَ ﴿ۙ۴۱﴾ مَا سَلَکَکُمۡ فِیۡ سَقَرَ ﴿۴۲﴾ قَالُوۡا لَمۡ نَکُ مِنَ الۡمُصَلِّیۡنَ ﴿ۙ۴۳﴾ وَ لَمۡ نَکُ نُطۡعِمُ الۡمِسۡکِیۡنَ ﴿ۙ۴۴﴾ وَ کُنَّا نَخُوۡضُ مَعَ الۡخَآئِضِیۡنَ ﴿ۙ۴۵﴾ وَ کُنَّا نُکَذِّبُ بِیَوۡمِ الدِّیۡنِ ﴿ۙ۴۶﴾ حَتّٰۤی اَتٰىنَا الۡیَقِیۡنُ ﴿ؕ۴۷﴾

    They will be in gardens inquiring after these wrongdoers. They will ask them ‘What has brought you into Hell?’ They will reply `Indeed, we were not among those who prayed nor did we feed the poor. And we used to quibble with these quibblers and used to deny this Day of Reckoning till there came to us this moment of certainty“.

    (Quran 74:40-47)


    It is mentioned in Hadith:

    Between disbelief and faith is abandoning the Salat.”


    Verily between man and between polytheism and unbelief is the negligence of prayer.”
