#MuftiMenk makes mention of the opening verse 1&2 from Surah Al Mu’minin (23) where Allah (swt) says how to increase #concentration in salah/ #prayer at one’s #maximum level automatically by following and doing specific activities.
you want contentment work on your concentration in Salah. How will I achieve that? So Allah continues to say those who stay away from, those who turn away from that which is futile, that which is futile, you stay away from it. Those who give zakah, those who cleanse themselves, those who purify themselves, those who give charity to the poor, they reach out to those who don’t have with what they have, those who protect their private parts; they don’t commit adultery. Those who fulfil their trust, they fulfil what Allah has entrusted them with and what people have entrusted them with, those who fulfil their five daily prayers. So when we do all of these things we will automatically be increasing the concentration in Salah.
Remember cut out that which is futile. it doesn’t benefit you. It’s a waste of time. Anything that’s a waste of time learn to cut it out, you’ll be happy. Do that which is constructive. Use your time responsibly and see what happens? Allah will open your doors in the dunya and the akhira –Mufti Menk

#MuftiMenk addresses that if the #Salah (#prayer) is in order everything else will be easy. If the Salah is not in order the rest of it what do you expect? It’s going to be difficult and tough. He says that one will achieve the greatest joy when he/ she fulfils that Salah when it is difficult for him in this lecture.
Mufti Menk adds five times a day we are called in a certain direction and the caller reminds us because it is that prescription from Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala for the caller to call out five times a day even though we know our duty towards allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala. He mentions some tips how to fulfil salah on time with smiling and contentment.
“Come to success- every one of us male and female; young and old we are looking for success. There is no success beyond that which Allah has promised us. We can never be truly successful if we have disconnected from our five daily prayers.” – Mufti Menk
