If a Muslim doesn't pray regularly or neglect other obligatory acts, what is the responsibility of other Muslim's towards him? What if one doesn't perform this responsibility? Is he sinning?


1 Answer 1


Your responsibility towards a non-committed Muslim is to simply advise him , other than that , you aren't responsible .(ie if he refuses your advice , etc.)


  • Is this responsibility obligatory upon me? If so, what is prescribed to do if they don't listen?

  • @Crimson as far as I understand , you need to atleast try to advise them , if they don't listen then there is no fault upon you if they do something bad afterwards. As for what to do with them , your friendship with them need not be affected , but of course you should avoid joining them in anything that is haram or questionable , maintaining your own worship and steering away from any group activity that doesn't make you comfortable , if they are your friends they would understand that . You are only encouraged to leave them if they are actively trying to drag you into their lifestyle by force

  • @Crimson (i.e if they have a significantly bad influence on you ) otherwise , continue your relationship with them as usual and mind your own self .
