Prayers

TIPS ON HOW TO CONCENTRATE DURING SALAT

1.Before standing up for Prayer, try to deal with all the
minor urgent matters which demand your attention. If you
are pressed by hunger, eat first; if you are pressed to attend
to the… call of nature, relieve yourself; if you are the parent
of an infant, feed him or her, or keep him or her busy.
☛ 2. Perform your wudu’ (ablution) well, paying due care
and attention.
☛ 3. Approach the Prayer with zest and passion as if it is
the last prayer in your life before dying. Actually the Prophet
(peace and blessings be upon him) taught us that we could
do nothing in this world that could ever surpass Prayer in
merit and excellence.
☛ 4. Visualize that in your Prayer you are going to have a
special audience with Allah, Lord of the worlds, and that you
are enjoying a direct communion with Him—which, in fact,
is true.
☛ 5. Think of the Prayer you are performing as if it were the
last Prayer of your life. In fact, it could very well be the last
one, since no one is given a guarantee that he would live to
perform another Prayer.
☛ 6. Picture the scene of the Last Day when people will be
lined up into two groups, one destined for Heaven, and
another for Hell, and ask yourself where you would be
placed.
☛ 7. Focus your mind on what you are reading in your
Prayer and recite simple suurats that you understand it’s
meaning and ponder on the meaning whiles u recite.
☛ 8. If, in spite of your best efforts, your mind is still
wandering, seek refuge in Allah and bring your mind back to
Prayer.
☛ 9. Pray to Allah and beg Him to grant you true the joy of
concentrating in your Prayer and protection against the
wanderings of your mind.
☛ 10. Place your eyesight to the one spot where you will be
making your sujuud while you recite and avoid taking your
eyes from that spot.
☛ 11. While which Surah reciting in the Salah if you call
back in your mind the Meaning or Translation of that Surah
along with the Arabic recitation ,In Shaa Allah in Salah the
concentration will never deviate.
Prophet Mohammed ( pbuh ) says :
”Those who memorize the one ayat and long with the its
Translation , he will get 100 Nafeel Salah Reward.”
[Sunna Ibne Maja Ch 16 Hadith 219]
