No prayer accept good deeds
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 103:
Indeed, the salaat is a prescribed duty that should be performed at the appointed times by the believers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verses 45-46:
45 Nay! Seek (Allah's) help with patient perseverance and Prayer: it is indeed hard, except to those who bring a lowly spirit.
46 Who bear in mind the certainty that they are to meet their Lord and that they are to return to Him.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 20 Surah Taha verse 14:
14 "Verily I am Allah: there is no god but I: so worship thou Me (only) and establish regular prayer for My Remembrance.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 29 Surah Ankabut verse 45:
45 Recite what is sent of the Book by inspiration to thee and establish Regular Prayer: for Prayer restrains from shameful and unjust deeds; and Remembrance of Allah is the Greatest (thing in life) without doubt. And Allah knows the (deeds) that ye do.
Allah Subhanah has prescribed the five obligatory prayers as a right and a duty due to Him from those who have professed belief in Him, and amongst all the obligatory rites of worship in Islam no act is mentioned and stressed more often in the Glorious Quran by the Lord than the establishment of obligatory prayer! One can comprehend the importance and significance of the obligatory prayers through the fact that the absolute first thing that will be called to account on the Day of Resurrection will the prayers, and that the Messenger of Allah (saws) declared that the one thing that manifests differentiation between a believer and a disbeliever is prayer!
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 863 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
He heard that the Prophet of Allah (saws) said: The first thing about which the people will be called to account out of their actions on the Day of Judgment is Prayer. Our Lord, the Exalted, will say to the Angels - though He knows better: Look into the prayer of My servant and see whether he has offered it perfectly or imperfectly. If it is perfect, that will be recorded as perfect. If it is defective, He will say: See if there are some optional (Sunnah or Nafl) prayers offered by My servant. If there are optional prayer to his credit, He will say: Compensate the obligatory prayer by the optional prayer for My servant. Then all the actions will be considered similarly.
Jabir reports that the Prophet (saws) said, "Between a person and disbelief is the discarding of prayer."
Related by Ahmad, Muslim, Abu Dawud, at-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah.
Buraidah reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "The pact between us and them is prayer. Whoever abandons it is a disbeliever."
Related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud, at-Tirmidhi, anNasa'i and Ibn Majah.
Your Question: Is it true if one doesn`t pray his charity will not be accepted by Allah or any good deeds he does will not be accounted for him ????
There is no specific Verse or Hadith which declares that Allah Subhanah will not accept the deeds of one who doesnt pray; thus in reality, the case of one who professes belief but did not fulfill his obligatory duty of prayers is in the Hands of none save the Lord Most High Most Supreme.
If one claims to be a believer, claims belief in Allah as His Lord, in Prophet Mohamed (saws) as Allahs Last and Final Messenger, in the Glorious Quran as the Last and Final Revelation of Allah, and claims belief in the Hereafter..but denies or is reluctant to fulfill the very first duty that the Lord demands from His believers.how is it possible to assume that such a person would be willing to do anything else for Allah Subhanah???
The similitude of one who professes belief but refuses to fulfill his obligatory duty of prayers is like a soldier who joins the army but refuses to turn up for his daily training! Would the army accept such a soldier in their ranks or trust him to defend the nation when required??
Or the similitude is of a student who enrolls in school, but refuses to attend the daily assembly or classes! Would any school accept such a student???
Or the similitude is of an employee who is hired to do a particular job; but he does everything else except the job he has been hired for! Would any good organization or company hire such an employee?
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 51 Surah Dhariyat verse 56:
I (Allah) have not created the jinn and men except for this that they should worship Me alone.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
