Can you explain why Islamic clerics state that certain prayer times are more important than others? Is God not always available? I always think about how we are told all these things and what is true. Is intention not important. At times I think and thank Allah, but do not offer salat. I think I want to be REAL as opposed to pretend or just pray with an empty heart just to show off to other Muslims. Anyways, where does it say that one prayer is more important then the others? This makes no sense and I doubt God with his infinite wisdom limits his grace, his love, and his mercy. Where are such thoughts coming from?
Offer salat alone if you prefer but you need to offer salat. Humble constancy in obeying our Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) is the best guarantee here and hereafter.
