Allahu Akbar

The most ignored part of salah is probably the allahu akbar we say after every motion. It has become a word that we keep repeating over and over again, more than a hundred times a day during salah, and yet we have no idea what it means or what it signifies. It comes from our tongues and never from our hearts.

Next time you make salah focus on putting meaning into these beautiful words. Allahu akbar, God is the Greatest! Allahu akbar and Allah is the most important thing in my life. Allahu akbar and nothing else matters compared to Him. Allahu akbar and to Him I belong and to Him I will return.

These words, said with feeling, with heart, with meaning, can put a new life into your prayers.
