Weak Iman of Family Members



For quite some time I’ve been fearing my close family’s Iman. Some of my family members don’t pray salah regularly, they usually pray Jumuah to Jumuah. And I’m wondering, how can someone who believes in Allah(swt) not pray salah. Also, I don’t see them having a consciousnesses about this issue, they think it is a light matter. Do such people with this type of an attitude have true Iman that will cause them to enter Jannah?

If one of my family members go to hell for sometime, and when they come out, will they be next to me since we are family?


Alaykum as-Salam,

The Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) said the difference between unbelief and faith is Salat. He also said the first account we will be asked about in the grave is Salat.

As for the last question, Paradise is countless levels, and the people of the upper levels can visit the lower levels at will, and Allah knows best.
