السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
A student of the Qur'aan, reading, memorising, teaching, learning...A seeker of knowledge...
Just reminding myself and those around me; إنا لله وانا إليه رجعون - From Allah Jala wa'ala we came and to Him is our return.
وعليكم السلام و رحمة الله و بركاته

The heart is a confusing, altering thing. No state is forever. No state of bliss lasts forever. But no state of pain does either. They all pass. So if you experience happiness, ask Allah to make it forever in jennah. And if you experience sadness, ask Allah to make it a means of purification and elevation for you. And know that this too shall pass.

So often it hurts us that we are not able to focus in our prayers. Remember, the more you focus on Allah outside your salah, the easier it will be to focus on Him inside your salah. What occupies you in salah, is what occupies you outside of salah. Try to fill your mind and heart with Allah as much as you can throughout your day. Talk to Him, make duaa to Him constantly. This will build your personal relationship with Him. Then, going to salah will be like coming home to an old friend.
