Prayer Like a Mo’min

Somebody asked Haatim Asam R.A as to how did he say his Salat.

He replied:

“When the time for salat comes, I perform my wudhu and go to the place where I have to say my salat. I sit down for some time, till all parts of my body  are relaxed. Then I stand up for salat visualising the Ka’bah in front of me, imagining my feet upon the Bridge of Siraat, with Paradise to my right, and Hell to my left, and Izrail close behind me, and thinking that it may be my last salat. Then I say my salat with full sincerity and devotion. And I finish my salat between fear and hope about its acceptance.”
