“Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that for Salat (prayer) an angel is assigned and he has no other task to perform. When one completes a Salat (prayer), the angel takes it and ascends to heaven. If it is of the kind that is accepted, it then is accepted, but if it is of unacceptable kind, it then is said to him, ‘Return it to My servant.’ He then descends down with that Salat (prayer) and strikes it against his face saying, “Woe is upon you. You continue to have such deeds that make me tired.”’”

“I heard abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, say, ‘Every mistake in Salat (prayer) is dropped thereby except that Allah, the Most High, completes it with optional prayers. The first item of deeds with which one is judged is Salat (prayer). If Salat (prayer) is accepted, other deeds are also accepted. If Salat (prayer) is raised in the beginning of its designated time, it comes to the person prayed it all white and radiant, saying, “You preserved me, may Allah protect you.” If Salat (prayer) is raised in other times without observance of the rules about it Salat (prayer) returns back to the person who has performed it, all black and dark, saying, “You wasted me away, may Allah lay you waste.”’

“Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘A man may become fifty years old, but Allah has accepted not even one Salat (prayer) from him. What can be more serious than this? By Allah, you may also find someone in your neighborhood who performs Salat (prayer) with you, but is not accepted from him due to his considering it insignificant. Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Glorious, does not accept anything other than what is good. How then He will accept what he considers insignificant?’”
