Slack in performing Salat: Its treatment

A spiritual aspirant wrote to Hakeemul Ummah Hazrat Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (R), “My mind slacks in performing Salat.” i.e. My mind doesn’t set for Salah and I don’t feel like praying Salat. Hazrat Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (R) replied, “There is no harm in it. However, don’t follow the slacking state. Oppose the reluctance of mind and accomplish Salat with care. Also make a practice of saying some voluntary, i.e. Nafl Salat up to an extent that wouldn’t hamper important works.”
