Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have heard that a person who does not pray namaaz at all is a kafir. Is this true? What about a person who prays only in Ramadan. Will he or she be considered a kafir?


A: No. But he is doing something that resembles the kuffaar.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
