Salaat - Pray before you are prayed upon

Check these picture out below, SubhanAllah, devoted Muslims of all ages, who seek to pray at the prescribed times regardless of where they are.

Rasulullah [SallAllahu Alayhi WaSallam] said,
"Pray while standing and if you can't, pray while sitting and if you cannot do even that, then pray lying on your side."
(Sahih Bukhari Volume 2 Book 20 No.218)

وإن كنت من ( المتكاسلين )
فستموت ميتة ( الخاسرين )
فلاتدع الصلاة تفوتك
Do not miss a prayer
Do not die a loser’s death

والله تعالى يقول : (( إِنَّ الصَّلاَةَ كَانَتْ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ كِتَابًا مَّوْقُوتًا )) .
Allah swt says in the Quran that prayer is prescribed upon the believers according to a precise timely record

صَـلُّوا قــَـبْلَ أنْ يُصَلَّى عـَلـَـيْكُمْ
Pray before you are prayed upon

This is an amazing picture of a diver, praying underwater - I am not sure what the Fiqh issue is around this is.

Therefore, we should not add excuses to missing our obligation of Salaah - we must pray all 5 prayers daily Insha'Allah!
