On the authority of Buraidah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: Come early to the `Asr prayer, as the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: That who abandons the `Asr Prayer, his deeds become fruitless. (Reported by Al-Bukhari)

Lessons Deduced:
1. It is forbidden to abandon praying `Asr prayer. This prayer was mentioned in particular to encourage Muslims to pay attention to it. Abandoning its performance may be a great disaster like having one's efforts fruitless.
