10 Things that will Help Achieve Khushoo in Salah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

This great piece is taken from Staircase to Jannah's blog mashallah. Inshallah we can all learn something from it.

(('Khushoo' = devotion, concentration)))

1. Answer the Call right away (pray on time)
2. Concentrate on where you pray- choose a place that is clear of ornaments and colors, anything that takes away your concentration
3. Do not pray in the presence of hunger or if you have to go to the bathroom
4. Don’t be a liar when you say “Allahu Akbar” – God is the Greatest – say it like you mean it and don’t think about something else
5. Pray as if it is your last prayer on earth
6. When you pray, beautify your voice, enough so that you can hear yourself– recite slowly and understand what you are saying – when we hear, we concentrate more
7. Think of what you are saying and what the verses mean – recite new ayahs
8. Understand what prayer is:
-realize why we make wudu – purify your body on the outside and the inside
-realize what it means to face the kibla – leave everything behind and facing the kibla
-realize what it means to make sujood - you are humbling yourself and facing Allah (swt)
9. Khanzab- Shaiytan – his sole job is to destroy your salah – say "aoodoo billa" and spit 3 times on your left side – realize that you are in battle with him and you have to be focused - do not let him win
10. Don’t make your salah too long, that you cannot concentrate, and don’t make it so short so that you cannot concentrate – keep it an average length
