Sometimes while praying my intention is not confined properly in my prayer? How should I direct my mind towards God in prayer?

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

1. Recent answer on the fiqh of intentions on the Hanafi Fiqh list (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hanafi).

2. Make a dua before praying, asking Allah to help you direct your heart and mind towards Him.

3. Prepare properly for prayer, following the proper manners that Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) taught us—see relevant chapters of Imam Nawawi’s Riyad al-Salihin.

4. Busy yourself with remembrance of Allah outside prayer, and you will find presence of heart inside and outside prayer.

And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam,

Faraz Rabbani
