In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Faṭwá Series for Ramaḍān 2016 - featuring selected faṭāwá by Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī (رحمه الله).
[A]: If he fasts, but doesn’t pray, then I say: Fasting is not accepted from whosoever doesn't pray. Therefore, if Allāh guided him, He has forgiven him, and tawbah [forgiveness from Allāh] erases that which preceded it.
Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī (رحمه الله).
