Why we should not be deceived by some people’s long Salaats?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) advised Komail ibn Ziad by saying: Do not be fascinated and deceived by those who perform lengthy Salaats, and keep fasting all the time, and pay to charity; and they think they are successful people! Because it is possible that they are used to do these prayers or want to deceive people on purpose. O’ Komail; when Satan wants to invite a group into sins like adultery, drinking wine (alcohol), usury, and similar sins, makes prayers with lengthy bowing and prostrating endear to them. When Satan traps them well and truly, then invites them to friendship with the leaders of oppression and cruelty [1].
