Very Good Question and let me inform you that many irresponsible people will use the prayer/devotion/worship as a tool to get popular or as an excuse to stay away from discharging responsibilities. The authentic religious practice is what you mentioned ( Offer worship or charity in secret so as not to be seen by others - only between the person and God )

However such worship which is done only to be seen by people and not please Allah/God will have no value in front of Allah/God !

Yes! I fully agree with the both the experts.

Daily Salat is never an inconvenient in the daily routine of mankind.

Appreciate that one should restrict opinions like 'Fad' or doing salat for others to see etc.. unless we are 100% sure.

But scholars should educate these Muslims on how to observe salat & in case of delays where to observe salat in a more humble manner without

inviting criticism from non Muslims if salat is coming in the way of business/work etc.

May the Almighty Allah have mercy on us to forgive our sins and guide us all to the true path of Islam as per the Koran

Love, sex and marital problems are some such topics! This is an independent volunteering service and not under any organizational banner that I may be affiliated with. My book- Intimacy and the Sacred talks about Sex and Muslims.
