WE NEGLECT / IGNORE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF AL-SALAT.
The other requirement of salat is to be patient [بِالصَّبْرِ] and ego less [الْخَاشِعِينَ]. Before the process of establishment of salat [connection] one has to have clarity in mind [غْسِلُواْ] and focus on the goal in front of them [الْقِبْلَةَ] – If you want to achieve something you cannot lose your connection and the focus / aim, you have to be 24x7 connected to it. This is what salati daimoon is. Can we achieve permanent connection by simply bowing and prostrating 3 or 5 times daily that too depending on the movement of the sun?
الَّذِينَ هُمْ عَلَى صَلَاتِهِمْ دَائِمُونَ
Allatheena hum AAala salatihimda-imoona
70:23 Those who are on their salat continuing / lasting / constant / remained / endured / always / endlessly.
Generally people ignore this important aspect of salat [صَلَاتِهِمْ دَائِمُونَ]. The process of salat is 24x7. The process of connection with Allah / Rabb and us is never ending. يُقِيمُونَ الصَّـلَاةَ establishment of salat is constant and never ending process.
(a) Why our Salat [connection] is lost or wasted [أَضَاعُوا]?
When we follow extreme desire / lust [الشَّهَوَاتِ] then our salat is lost or wasted – [19:59]
Note: According to the book Qur’an al-shahwaat is one of the opposite of salat because salat is lost due to shahwaat.
(b) How the Salat is connected or revived again?
For the re-connection of Salat we have to believe again in the process of connection, repent / return back and do right / reconciliatory deeds [عَمِلَ صَالِحًا] and avoid extreme desire – [19:60]
