Tips for improving your Salat

Salat is most important pillar of Islam. As a Muslim it’s our foremost duty to offer the Salat regularly without any laziness. Obviously we all offer prayer but we feel sometime that we are not satisfied even after offering the prayer regularly and because we don’t feel satisfaction sometime we left to offer the prayer. It is really the matter of thinking. It’s the time to look at you and your way of offering prayer. May be there are some problems or maybe you are missing something in Namaz. You should improve your Salat. Below are given some tips for improving your Salat.


• Wadu (ablution) is the first step toward Salat. If someone does not know the exact way of making ablution how he can offer prayer in proper way. So learn the way of ablution and make proper ablution.
• Your clothes while offering the prayer should be neat and proper. For women it is important to cover her properly as Islam has said. Some people don’t care about clothes. They don’t know that neatness is half Imaan. So we should be careful about clothes. In namaz we talk to Allah. When we go in front of special people we do very much care of our clothes. Why don’t we care when we go in front of Allah’s court. He is our Lord. Nothing is special more than Him.
• By performing the each Salat you should say thanks to Allah almighty that you have gotten a chance to stand in front of His court as a courtier again. We should think that maybe it is the last prayer of our lives so it’s the last chance to ask mercy from Allah Almighty.
• Never offer prayer in hurry. Before offering the Salat you should fulfill your physical requirements.
• The most important thing which we lose during prayer is concentration. Here the basic question is why do we lose the concentration? Here the most important reason behind losing the concentration is we don’t know the meaning of that Arabic actually which we recite during prayer. If we look at the meaning of Surah E Fatiha we will come to know that how beautiful and inspirited this Surah is. The heart wants to weep when we recite Surah E Fatiha with full of understanding. We should learn the deep meaning of each and every word and try to concentrate on these meanings. It’s a very important tip to achieve concentration.
• Lower your gaze and try to bring Khashoo in prayer.
• Remember this thing that you are talking to a most important “Lord” who is “one” the most merciful.
• Try to us more verses and more duas during prayer. Always remain focused on whatever you are reciting.
• When you perform a best Salat it changes your life and makes you an ideal Muslim. So always think that t his Salat will make u an Ideal human. In Quran it is said that:-
“Prayer forbids the indecent and the reprehensible.” {al-Ankabut 29:45}
• It is not essential that you should offer every Sunnah and every Nafl even if you cannot concentrate. If you can’t offer Sunnahs and Nawafil you can offer Fard prayer. But concentration is very much important. As it is said by Holy Prophet (PBUH) that:-
If a man performs two rakas of Salah without the distraction of any worldly thought, all his previous sins will be forgiven." (Bukhari.)
• Try to perform Salat in its early time.

So here are some tips which can help you in improving your Salat and getting the best reward. May Allah give us power to improve our prayer. (Amen)
