    Re: salah

    when i m on my own and doing salah, its not so bad, but when i pray with others, i get nervous, start stressing im gonna mess it up, and soemtimes i do mess it up, and then i feel stupid and lose complete sight of it, i mean i carry on, but all im wandering is omg have i messed it up?! does this happen to anyone else? what is my problem, why cant i just concentrate like i do when im alone and not make mistakes?
    assalam o alaikum sis,
    like you, i have also went down this road, but probably in slightly different way. when i used to pray with others it was completly fine, but when alone, i used to mess a lot probably like you, and then i chalked out my problem to a hafiz teacher who used to come to teach me Quran Al-Kreem. and the solution is-------- put ur heart in praying to Allah subhan o talla , put ur heart in how to make your salah more beautiful in sense to make it more better. dont think about people, or what they gonna think and say. think, in salah u r prostrating before the Almighty Allah. and most imp ask Allah suhan o talla to save you from waswassas of shaitan, ask Allah to help you make the best salah.
    shaitan will always be there to put distractions in our heart n mind. but we have to make our faith strong. sometimes even doing wazoo get difficult for me-- shaitan whispers in heart-- go do taimum-- but thats not the right way.
    sometimes offering nafl gets difficult, i give lots of reasons to my own self. this all is waswassas of shaitan.
    sometimes when i have these kind of urge to let go of nafl salah. i only think of one thing --- maybe this salah which m offering be the last of my life -- so try to make it better -- better in the way which is pleasing to Almighty Allah.
    hope this helps

    more than caring about others, i start to question whteher im making any mistakes or not, and that happens as soon as i enter the masjid, even on my way there i start stressing out thinking once again im gonna make some mistake

    for those that are thinking oh its easy to follow when you are following........to me it was and still is a bit alien , and sometimes, when im at masjid, im there after teh prayer time, so then i pray alone anyway, (people are around), and im fine but when im there at the allocated time, thats when things start going wrong...

    what happens when you in the 3rd rakah (say maghrib), and they dont recite aloud then, you do your own and then you hear allahu akbar and you gotta get up but you havent finished reciting what you were reciting to yourself?!


    ...im better off at home alhamdulillah

    Yes we get more reward for staying at home, as women. But, I remembered something that might encourage you a bit next time you are out with sisters and feel nervous to pray.

    I read a lecture transcript that said something like, it is a trick of the shaytan to make one nervous or shy to do fard things. If a Muslim is pious and he cannot convince them to do haram, he instead makes them so afraid of riyaa (showing off) or being noticed by others that he prevents them from doing halal. I am paraphrasing here, of course.

    i thought this, thats why initially,after learning how to pray, all i did, was pray at home, but then your aware of people going to masjid for salah, so i thought i should go sometiems right, so i started going thinking that i should make the effort to go and pray, why am i taking easy way out and doing it at home all the time, i dont know , is it ok, to not go masjid for prayers?

    also, when i started to go masjid sometimes for salah, i just thought it owuld be like when im at home, then i see how it is different, and ive been trying to grasp it, but, i tend to do salah at home usually, only like eid salah that kind of thing or tarawih, but i think maybe i need to learn about praying at masjid or soemthing?

    We all loose concentration sometimes but this seems to have gone a bit over board.
    i do try pray as if i am at home, all i want to do is do it right for Allah azzawajjal and not be a loser inshallah i shall try much more harder

    You can delay doing the movements and wait for other to do it. For example, when it's time to go to sujood, wait 1-2 seconds, when other are half way down, you can do down then, and so on.
    sometimes i forget if ive done sujood once, or two times, so can mess up. im not used to praying around people i guess and then make it harder that it has to be

    and the delaying means focusing on others when im trying to focus on me, and again, that gets me stressed out
