Contemplate the Meaning of Allahu Akbar in Solat

“If you truly contemplated the meaning of Allahu akbar (in solat), the world would vanish from your thoughts. This is because Allah is greater than everything, and you are standing before the One greater than everything.”

Ibn ‘Uthaymin رحمه الله

“The solat should be seen as an honor and a gift rather than a burden to be performed and get done with.” – Mufti Menk

The honor we are presented with five times a day, not once or twice or three times but five times a day to stand before the Lord of the worlds is the epitome of honor and blessedness that we can experience in our day.
