Remaining with someone who abandons a single prayer continuously


What is the ruling of a man who abandons the Fajr prayer. Is it allowed for his wife to remain with him?


The one who intentionally abandons a single obligatory prayer without an excuse is a Kāfir in the Madhab of some of the people of knowledge.

So upon this, it is incumbent for this man to repent to Allāh from this sin and return to safeguarding his prayer, and if not then his wife doesn’t remain with him and Allāh is the granter of success.
