As a Muslim who has only recently figured out a way to take my "on again, off again" relationship with prayer to the next level, I thought it might be helpful to share some things that helped solidify salah's position in my daily routine. 1/10

Fifth - be kind to yourself. Maybe you can't start with all 5 on day 1. Maybe start with 2 and build from there. Or maybe you can't pray all 5 as soon as they come in. Maybe try to start with 3 blocks/day: -One for fajr -One for dhuhr and asr -One for maghrib and isha 8/10
Finally, it's *never* too late to start. Allah knows who you are and what you struggle with. He just wants you to try your best. Your prayer journey can start with the next one! You're never too far gone or too damaged or too distant. Every day you're alive is 2nd chance. 9/10
He was received by Khaled al-Faisal bin Abdul Aziz, Governor of Makkah at the Royal Terminal in Jeddah. Khan was accompanied by Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi; Advisor to the Finance ...
First - remember why we pray. A teacher recently emphasized to me that we're repeatedly told that prayer is something that benefits us. In the blessings sense, of course. But also, prayer is inherently beneficial to our health and well-being. 2/10
Second - make prayer a meeting you can't miss. At the beginning of every year, I place short blocks on my calendar for each prayer. The process takes about an hour to set up, but the daily calendar reminders/blocks ensure that no one (including me) schedules over prayer. 5/10
A Saudi gentleman DMed me & asked if it's true Saadia Gaon names Makkah (Mecca) & Medinah in Gen. 10:30. I thought to myself, no way, but I looked it up and it's true! Interesting! Mesha=Makkah Sefara=Medinah http://pic.twitter.com/wWgdDgEv0p
If I'm not ready to sit before Allah and honestly admit what I want and need, will I actually be able to ask other people for help or take steps to helping myself? Prayer helps you check in with yourself and fosters a necessary form of self-awareness and self-compassion. 4/10
Fourth - create a behavior contract with yourself to reinforce the behavior. A few of mine: -I'm not allowed to leave the house until fajr is done. -I'm not allowed to leave work until dhuhr and asr are done. -I'm not allowed to get in bed until maghrib and isha are done. 7/10
Third - create a dedicated space. At home, there's a corner where a rug is always out. At work, I keep one in the motherhood room (which I also pre-book). Out, I carry a travel rug gifted to me by @SamiraImam_ This helps me literally hold space for prayer in a tangible way. 6/10
"I got big and i got rich" On the 19th of September 2018, God opened the doors for me. I ended up getting rich. I bought a mansion, fixed in flashy cars in it and got myself a private jet. I helped those who were in need, moved my parents to Canada and built a mosque in Makkah
None can beat Saudi Arabia in Charity! It's the entrance of the giant Makkah clock tower and it's written there —"Waqf Malik Abdulazeez"—which simply means all the revenue from this tower goes to the Charity. http://pic.twitter.com/GIsUVWZAdV
