Pearl of Wisdom

'A group from the companions of the Prophet (SAWA), when the verse: And whoever is wary of Allah, He shall make a way out for him, and provide for him from whence he does not reckon descended, locked their doors and engaged themselves in worship, saying, 'We have been sufficed.' The Prophet (SAWA) found out about this so he sent for them and said, 'What made you do what you are doing?' They said, ?O Messenger of Allah! Our sustenance is being taken care of so we have occupied ourselves in worship.' He said, 'Whoever does this , his call will not be answered [by Allah]. You must seek your livelihood.'

Question : #452 Category: Salaat / Prayers
Subject: unable to pray at work
Question: Salam,

I used to be able to pray at work and now my Zuhr/Asr namaz becomes qaza because I pray at home.

Is this a major sin? There is no facility for me to pray at work.

Please let me know.
Answer: It is not appropriate for a Muslim to delay the saying of salat from its preferred time (i.e. at the beginning of its time span) and what has been mentioned in the question is not an acceptable excuse.

If the need to work at that place reaches the level of necessity, then he should pray in time in whatever way possible: even just by indicating [by lowering the neck halfway for ruku' and fully for sajda]. However, such a situation would arise only exceptionally. So he should fear Almighty Allah and not accept a job which leads to neglecting the pillar of faith; thus, he should remember the words of the Almighty:
"And whosoever fears Allah, He will make a way out for him [from difficulties] and provide for him from where he does not expect." (65:2)
