Details of the Question
Is the worshipping of a person who does not perform five daily prayers not accepted?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

What is meant by that expression in the hadiths is that the worshipping will not be expected in the perfect manner.

It will be wrong to say that the other worshipping of a person who does not perform five daily prayers is not accepted because Allah does not let any good deed disappear. However, since prayer (salah) is the essence of all kinds of worshipping and since a person who does not perform prayers is regarded to have committed sins, the reward he gets from other kinds of worshipping will decrease. That is, he cannot obtain the perfect rewards but his deeds are valid.
