The importance of concentration whilst performing Salaat


SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) who said: If a person performs two Rok’ats of Salaat and (whilst praying) does not engage his/her soul to any of the worldly affairs, Allah (SWT) forgives his/her sins [1]. In another similar narration, the Prophet (PBUH) said: When a servant of God stands up to perform Salaat with his/her thought and desire towards God (full concentration), ends Salaat as if he/she is born from his/her mother [2]. In another narration, the Prophet (PBUH) said: O’ Abuzar, two Rok’ats of Salaat with thought is better than one night of Salaat without [3]. It is also narrated from the Prophet (PBUH) who said: Two persons from my Ummah stand up for Salaat, and their bowing and prostration are the same but the difference between their Salaats from the point of view of attainment, is the difference between the sky and the earth [4].
