Wa 'alaikumus salam sister. Fear Allah, for he knows everything you do! Those who miss prayer intentionally will receive a painful torment in the afterlife if they don't change this habit and repent. In Sura Ma'un, Allah sub'hanu wa ta'ala says - "Fawailoollil musallin allathina hum 'an salatihim sahoon" (Wailool is for those who neglect their salat!). Wailool is an extremely hot place in jahannam. It is so hot that other places in jahannam seek refuge in Allah from it! Do you understand how severe is the punishment for not being attentive in salat? Can you stay in fire for even one minute? No, you can't. Then how will you tolerate such a torment? Think about these things seriously. Always give Akhira more priority than dunia. Just imagine, you are going to sleep and suddenly you wake up to see Azrael 'alaihi salam! What will happen then? This life is so short. We have to make use of every single moment. Never ever neglect the fard salats. You have to strengthen your iman first. Know that the afterlife is 100% true. How have you taken preparation for it? Once you die, there will be no coming back to this world. Make hay while the sun shines. Follow these steps, InshaaAllah this will become easy for you. 1 . Firstly, read Quran in a language you understand. Realize the intensity of the punishment for being disobidient to Allah's divine rules. We are bound to follow the rules set by Allah sub'hanu wa ta'ala and Rasoolullah sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam. If we don't, the wrath of Allah will surely be on us. 2 . Understand as much hadith as you can, for hadiths are explanations to the verses of Quran. 3 . Develop love for Allah and Rasoolullah sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Love Islam. Also fear Allah and his punishment. 4 . Think about the ni'amats in jannat. Don't you want to go there? Then pray the fard salats with concentration. Make up any fard salats you missed. Pray a lot of nafal salats everyday. 5 . Realize that salat is a connection between you and your Lord. So pray slowly, pronounce the ayats and du'as in salat correctly and also know their meanings. Pray salat in such a way that you may feel talking to Allah sub'hanu wa ta'ala himself! Make salat an enjoyable act for you. 6 . Make du'as, repent and cry a lot. Beg Allah for mercy. Ask him to make salat easy for you. After reading this, please don't miss a single salat. If you missed any salats today make them up before you pray another fard salat. Please don't miss another fard salat again! When Rasoolullah sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam went to meet Allah in M'iraj, Allah ordered that his ummat should pray 50 waqt salats everyday! After the request made by Rasoolullah sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam, Allah made salat easy for us by ordering us to pray only 5 waqt fard salats a day! If we don't even manage to pray this 5 waqt salat, what kind of ummat will we be? So please sister, don't make the same mistake again by missing another fardh salat.
