I prayed Fajr (the first Muslim prayer of the day) today 🙂 I haven’t been the best at praying that lately. And I feel happy and motivated to tackle the day ahead inshaAllah.
So Alhamdulillah, prayer has such a positive effect on one’s mental state. In the previous days I have felt guilty and sad after missing prayers. This isn’t a good way to start off the day.
Praying fajr seems to be like the first pillar in a building. It sets the foundations and if that pillar is missing, then the rest of the building will feel it’s absence.
This post was intended to be a reminder to myself and for anyone else reading this post 🙂 that prayer is so important for mental health.
