Surah Al-Ma'un makes a reference to lifeless prayers:

"So woe unto those performers of prayers (hypocrites), who delay their Salat (prayer) from its stated fixed time" [107: 4,5]

A worshipper is neglectful of his prayers either when he delays the prayer to the last possible minute, or when he does not concentrate fully on what he is doing and saying.

Allah's Messenger (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) was once sitting in the Masjid at Al-Madinah when a Bedouin entered and began to pray. He prayed so quickly, that when he had finished, the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) asked him to repeat the prayer. His second attempt was just as hurried, so the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) asked him to repeat it again. After a third hurried prayer, the bedouin said: "O Messenger of Allah. I cannot pray better than this." The Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) then showed the man how to pray. He instructed him to recite Surah Al-Fatihah while in the standing position, then to say Tasbih in the Ruku position, to stand upright saying Rabbana lakal hamd, to go down with Sajdah and recite Tasbih, and to sit between the two Sajdah and recite a Du'a. The Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) advised the bedouin to do this in each Rakah. [Musnad Ahmad]

Allah's Messenger (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) used to spend a lot of time on each prayer, so that each movement of the prayer could be offered slowly and properly. He once said: "A man's lengthy prayer and short sermon shows that he has a good understanding of the religion." [Muslim, Abu Dawud]

This refers to the Friday Khutbah which should not be too long while the prayer should be lengthy.

A friend like you is rare
Caring sweet and always there
A friend like you is very scarce
In this world where most things are a farce

A friend like you brings joy
Always giving reasons to smile
Listening, caring and always there

A friend like you takes away the dark clouds and brings rays of sunshine
A friend like you is like a treasure
Makes my life a pleasure

Thank you for Being a Friend Like You
