Imam gave a lot of importance to prayers and emphasized it very much; he always
used to say: “Don’t be negligent in your prayers.” He used to say to us:
“When you say, first I will do this and then I will pray, this is wrong,
don’t say this. Give your prayers importance. Prayers come first.” In short,
he used to emphasize (the importance of) prayers very much.
