Pray as if it is your last Prayer. Imagine that these are the last few moments of your life therefor your last salah in this dunya. Imagine the green, lush gardens on your right. Imagine the heat, the smoke, on your left. Imagine a bridge under you, thinner than a hair and sharper than a sword.
Allow yourself to be overwhelmed by the attributes of your creator..... "The Most Merciful, The Compeller, The Mighty, The Most pure, Holy" (read up on the names of Allah)
