Almost a year ago I reached the end of a failed experiment to improve my prayers. As Ramadan draws near again I have found myself back here. Honestly with great pain I will admit that I am in the exact same place I was one year ago – days filled with meaningless prayers. I am filled with shame. Oh Allah!

I’m not sure what to do exactly but I will do something! I won’t allow another year to pass me this way. Starting today I will ask Allah everyday to help me with my prayers. I will make duaa that Allah grants me a prayer life filled with solace.

Oh Allah make my prayer the solace of my life … the thing beloved to me most … the thing I can never let go. Ameen
