How do I get addicted to the salat?

Thank you very much for your question. It is our pleasure to answer it.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

Dear brother, prayer is the basis of the religion, and there is no religion without offering prayer. It is the first act that a person will be held accountable for on the Day of Judgment.

Some helpful tips to keep on prayer

1- Resort to Allah and seek His help and guidance.

2- Stay away from sins and evil deeds. Once a man complained to Al-Hassan Al-Basri that he could not wake up for Fajr (Dawn) prayer, Al-Hassan replied, “You are shackled in your own sins.”

3- Accompany the pious and good friends who always guide us to the right way of Allah and avoid mixture with immoral people. Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: “I heard the Prophet (peace be upon him) saying, “Man follows his friend’s religion, you should be careful who you take for friends.” (At-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud)

4- Preserve the congregational prayers in its prescribed times which is one of the greatest means that helps persistence on prayer.

5- Remember death, the questions of the angles in the grave, the life after death, and the Day of Judgment.

6- Realize the severe punishment for those who neglect their prayer which awaits the man on the Day of Recompense.  Almighty Allah showed His Prophet (peace be upon him) the people who are punished because of neglecting the prescribed prayer.
