The Prayer Its Effects In Increasing Eemaan and Purifying The Soul
'The people have indeed come to treat the Prayer as something unimportant. Attentiveness and humility in it have been taken away, except from those whom Allaah, the Most High, wills. The hearts have become darkened and the people's distressed state has become grave. They have searched for the causes and strive to find a cure, but are unable to find it. They have looked into everything except their Prayers, which are the closest of affairs to them...
Indeed the well-being of the soul beings with rectification of one's belief (aqeedah) and one's Prayer, and I do not think that I am exaggerating when say that correct Prayer done with full attentiveness and humility is one of the most important means for the success and victory of this Ummah.
So let us reflect upon our Prayer and compare it with the Prayer of the Prophet and Companions, since that is the way to change the souls and turn them to that which is loftier. That is the way to success, well-being and salvation in this life and the Hereafter.'
