I know that making my prayers to Allah is important but I feel so bored. Help!
If you think praying is boring, you should try standing around in a field chewing grass all day! Try these tips to change your yawning ways:
Eyes on the Goal!
Now, if I said that the person who stood up the quickest and sat down the quietest would get a prize, would you be bored doing the same thing over and over again as you try to win?
Prayer is just like that. It might seem like you’re working for nothing, but doing the best you can every time will earn you rewards without end!
All Muslims are summoned to prayer by the adhan. Take a few minutes to learn this beautiful call to prayer and then surprise your family by gathering them together with those wonderful words.

Hey, Wait Up!
Sit down after the prayer and make a du’aa to Allah, thanking Him for His Gifts of Love and Mercy. Try to think of at least five things that you are happy about and tell them to The One Who Hears Everything.
I never get bored talking about myself and Allah never gets bored of listening to the voices of His faithful servants!
So stop yawning and start yahoo-ing because the time to pray is the time to celebrate being a Muslim!
