Burdaidah reports that Rasoolullah (SAW) said, "The difference between us (Muslims) and them (Unbelievers) is SALAH. Whoever abandons it is a disbeliever."
Rasoolullah (SAW) said, "Whoever guards and observes his prayer, it will be a light and a proof and a savior for him on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever doesn't guard and observe them, they will not be a light or a proof or a savior for him...* " [Ahmad, at-Tabaraani]
'Abdullah ibn Qart (RA) related that the Rasoolullah (saws) said, "The first act that the slave will be accountable for on the Day of Judgement will be salah. If it is good, then the rest of his acts will be good. And if it is evil, then the rest of his acts will be evil." [at-Tabaraani]
Allah says: "(The inhabitants of Hell will be asked): "What caused you to enter Hell-fire?" They will say: "We were not among those who prayed," [Quran 74: 42-43]
