Besides that, there are instructions that the eye is for an eye, the nose is for nose, the ear is for ear, life is for life and money in the revenge of money but if someone wants to forgive, it is better as ALLAH Almighty likes forgiveness.

As far as prayers are concerned, there are clear orders of ALLAH Almighty in the Holy Quran to offer prays. Reminders are given many times in the Quran to offer Namaz and to pay the Zakat.
