Prayer is one of the greatest practical pillars in Islam. Kushu` is very necessary to get the full reward of prayer. Delaying prayer to the end of its time or praying after the time is over leads one to lose khushu` in prayer.

In this talk Yasmeen Mogahed sheds some light on khush` in prayer and how to enjoy our prayers.
