Zikr without prayer


If a person performs zikr to Allah for 5-6 hours a day. And the person is doing this for years and years. The person does not pray the 5 daily prayers. Is the person with Shaitan, Iblis and jin?

Thank you :)


Alaykum Salam,
Many might answer yes if they have heard of the Prophet Muhammad (upon him blessings and peace) and yet knowingly reject his way and the Divine command to pray as taught by him. However, perhaps that person has not heard of the Prophet yet, but they are striving to tame their ego and remember their Creator — like a monk or nun or devotee in other religions — in which case Allah Most High will guide him or her to truth if they are sincere. They might be in reality very close to Allah’s open door and it takes only a little push for them to reach a high level. Allah knows best who among His slaves is ultimately guided.
