Someone told me that he is in a crisis. He is tempted to stop praying. Why? Because when he prays, he doesn’t feel anything. He doesn’t feel spiritual or enlightened or anything. But, he said, I won’t stop praying because I’m not going to abandon what Allah has commanded me to do.

Maybe that is what Allah will accept from you. Maybe that sense of responsibility, forcing yourself to make wudu and stand in prayer on time when you don’t want to but only because Allah commanded you to do so, maybe that will result in forgiveness, eternal salvation, and the good pleasure of your Lord.
