Laziness in Prayer – Shaykh Ibnul ‘Uthaymeen (Rahimahullah)
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Whomsoever performs the Prayer upon a manner of laziness then in him is a resemblance to the Hypocrites…so be wary & cautioned from resembling the Hypocrites.
Perform the prayer with energy and happiness & pleasure; and by Allah, indeed the Believer in reality is certainly pleased when the (time for) Prayer arrives because he will stand before Allah and call upon Him.
Due to this, if you see in of yourself laziness in the Prayer then blame yourself because you are without a doubt comparable with the Hypocrites in this characteristic, so alter your way (regards to Prayer & all worship) toward Allah عز وجل and do not be negligent”
