Imam Ali peace be upon him , in
verse 239, says:
مَنْ أَطَاعَ التَّوَانِيَ ضَيَّعَ الْحُقُوقَ
obeys weakness will ruin the rights. These rights include that persons rights,
the rights of others, and the right of God. Because a lazy man loses everything
at his tasks, For example at prayer he doesn’t have enough attention. Which in
the Quran says to the hypocrites:
وَإِذَا قَامُوا إِلَى الصَّلَاةِ قَامُوا كُسَالَىٰ.
Usually, humans are
caught up with some kind of laziness that creates problems for them and these
kind of laziness are mentioned:
First: Laziness in religious duties. Sometimes
people are lazy towards their religious duties and obedience to the divine
commandments; while they believe in God and his commands, but they don’t attend
to them because of laziness.
The bases of this kind of laziness are in a few things:
A: Doubts; if there is a doubt in the minds of anyone about religious
affairs, hes going to lose his faith soon. The solution is to eliminate these
doubts in the person s mind, so that it doesn’t cause laziness in performing

الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ.
Say, “O My servants who have
transgressed against themselves: do not despair of God’s mercy, for God
forgives all sins. He is indeed the Forgiver, the Clement.”
D: Failure by
families, sometimes families themselves, are lazy to carry out their religious
duties. A child growing up in this kind of family is expected to be lazy in
performing religious duties.
