“Cheerfully, with Formidable Desire and Intense Happiness …”

“Abdullah Ibn Abbaas said, ‘It is detested that a man stands to pray lazily, he should rather stand for it cheerfully, with formidable desire, intense happiness, for he is confiding privately in Allaah, and Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, is in front of Him and forgiving him and answering him when he supplicates,’ and he recited this verse, ‘And when they [i.e., the hypocrites] stand to pray they do so lazily.’’” [4:142]

At-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb, no. 1904.
