Details of the Question

Is there a hadith stating that the punishment for not performing a single daily prayer is eighty years of hell torture?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

We have not found any expressions in any verses or hadiths stating that the punishment of the person who does not perform five daily prayers is eighty years of hell torture.

Scholars emphasized on the meaning of the word "Ahqab" in verse 23 of the chapter of an-Naba 23 "They will dwell therein for ages." and in some narrations expressing that the people of hell will stay there for successive periods of long time.

They said that the singular of this word "Huqub" means forty, seventy, eighty or three hundred, sixty years, etc. The most well-known is eighty years. Most probably, the issue of the eighty-year punishment of not performing a single prayer is evaluated by establishing a connection with this verse.
