Is there any guideline for training one’s self to concentrate in salah?
The Tabi’i, Abu Mijlaz (rahimahullah) says: ‘It was the practice of the Sahabah (radiyallahu’anhum) that to avoid foreign thoughts in salah, they would offer short salats without compromising any of the postures.’
(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, hadith: 4707. Also see Fathul Bari, hadith: 706)
Some people advise offering lengthy salats for this purpose. It’s possible that both methods work for different individuals.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
