With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Surah 19 (Maryam)
But there came after them an evil generation, who wasted prayers and followed lusts, so they will meet perdition
After the passing of the messengers of Allah, the generations that followed them lost the essence of the message. Their salaah became meaningless. A warning for us in this verse as our salaah today has also become just an empty ritual. Among the many purposes of Salaah, it is meant to keep us away from committing evil and injustices.
Further reference is Surah 29 verse 45
…and establish regular Prayer: for Prayer restrains from shameful and unjust deeds…
