I speak to you because you are a alim , google its not a alim of madhab, jazak Allah khar.

 

ANSWER:

Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

All the scholars including the four Imams of fiqh have unanimously declared that one who denies the obligation of Salah is a kafir (unbeliever) and a murtad (apostate).

This is on account of his denial of an obligatory duty which is evident from the firm sources of the Quran, the Sunnah and Ijma. They have also stated that one who leaves off Salah out of laziness and negligence is a sinner and transgressor. (Al Fiqh Al Islami Wa Adilatihi Vol.1 Pg. 658 Maktaba Rasheediya Queta)
