How to get motivated to start performing salaah regularly

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: For as long as I can remember I’ve never prayed regularly. Now I’m starting to realize my mistake and I want to start praying regularly. Whenever I pray, I don’t get the satisfactory feeling that I’m hoping to get.

Could you please tell me how can I start praying regularly? Is there any dua for it? How to get protection from Shaytan so that he doesn’t hinder in my salah? I really want to start praying 5 times a day.


A: The most effective thing is self determination, and perhaps what can support your self determination is the company of the pious or their recommended books like Fazaa’il-e-A`maal or Fazaa’il-e-Sadaqaat. What can also support you is that you make a commitment that you will only eat after you perform your namaaz on time.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
