Is this a Hadith?

“Whoever misses Fajr salat loses the light of the face. Whoever misses Zuhr Salah loses the strength of his body. Whoever misses ‘Asr Salah loses the benefit of his wealth. Whoever misses Maghrib Salah loses the benefit of his family. Whoever misses ‘Isha Salah loses the benefit of his sleep.”



I have not come across this Hadith in any primary Hadith nor in any secondary source.

The narration should not be quoted until it can be sourced and then verified. There are many authentic Hadiths which warn against missing and neglecting Salah. These should be quoted instead.

See the following links:

  1. The severity of missing Salah
  2. Hadith on warning of discarding salah
  3. Punishment in the grave for missing Salah
  4. Those who neglect Salah will be with Qarun, Haman and Fir’awn
  5. Salah is the pillar of Din
  6. The rewards and warnings for Fajr Salah
  7. The importance of being mindful of Salatul ‘Asr


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
