As Salamu Alaykum
For the Shafi'i brothers on the forum like Sidi Yahya and others. Do any of you know the original position whether it be the Qawl al Qadim or Qawl al Jadid of Imam Shafi'i that neglecting to perform the prayer out of laziness is kufr or not kufr? Meaning can someone cite for me with english translation from Al Umm or Al hujjah?
There is a claim out there that the early Mujtahid Imams held it be kufr. I am already aware that Imam Shafi'i's position in Kitab al Hujja or Kitab al Umm may or may be the mu'tamad of the madhhab because a lot of tarjih was done through the centuries and that the main reference is what Nawawi and Rafi'i agree upon and the main figures for fatawa in the school is from ibn Hajar Haytami and Ramli.
