However, this should not be done. Fasting is an obligation throughout the day. But the daily obligatory prayers are 16 rak’ats. In terms of dignity, the most important act of worship after faith is prayer, then fasting. Beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said that prayer is the difference between faith and disbelief. (Muslim)
Therefore, from this hadith we can understand that the one who is fasting but is not praying, his fast is only to abstain from food and drink. Whoever has the fear of Allah in his heart, has been able to obey and submit to the commandments of Allah. And if that did not happen, then this fast of yours has no meaning, this is what Allah wants through fasting.
Prayers are the best way to express one’s devotion to Allah throughout the year including Ramadan. The main task of a believing man and woman is to establish worship. During the prayers, the best part of the body falls to the ground, prostrates, surrenders to Allah and seeks forgiveness.
Because, prayer is the main sign of obedience to Allah. Salat is one of the acts of worship which Allah Ta’ala has made obligatory. The Holy Qur’an instructs to establish Salat 72 times, “Establish Salat and pay Zakat and bow with those who bow.” (Surat al-Baqara, verse 43)
In the month of Ramadan, prayers are the most important of all obligatory acts of worship. Prayers strengthen faith. It is only through prayers that one can attain nearness to God. There are five bases of Islam: kalema, namaz, roza, hajj and zakat. The first three are obligatory on all Muslims, rich and poor. And the last two are obligatory on the able-bodied Muslims.
