I am on an ongoing quest to improve the quality of my salah as it’s something I still struggle with. I’m sure I’m not alone so I thought it would be beneficial (for me and you) to create an ‘Improve Khushu In Salah’ series. The posts are designed to be as simple and as brief as possible, making them suitable for parents to share with their children too. The full series will be added to our website once complete and can be adapted and added to based on your feedback and suggestions.
(I will not be covering tips for mothers with children as this topic deserves a whole series by itself!)

These ayahs provide us with clear guidance about salah. We are advised to take care of our daily prayers, perform them in the best way, with devotion, and in a humble manner.
