If the CEO of your company called you out of the blue for a meeting, it would probably be the most important meeting of your professional career. You wouldn’t dare to be late or untidy. In the meeting, you wouldn’t dare to look bored or disinterested.
Now compare this to your attitude in salaah (prayer). Is it the same, less, or more?
By Allah, I assure that the Keys of the Heavens and the Earth are in our Lord’s Hands. There is no matter but that it is under His complete control. There is nothing you desire except that He has it in His Power to give. There is nothing you fear but that He can save you from it.
And He wants to meet YOU exclusively five times a day.
Do the math and act wisely. Make salaah the most important appointment of your day.
