Why do you pray?
Do you pray because you need something? Do you pray because you want something? Do you pray because you are just told so? Come, think of it, ask yourself, why do you pray?
Many thoughts are coming now to your mind.
We have all our own reasons why we pray to Allah, but before anything else, let it be known that you pray because it is not because you are told so but because you are obliged to do so, it is the first pillar of Islam.
