«The purpose of ritual prayer is not that you should bow and prostrate yourself all day. Its purpose is that you should develop a prayerful attitude, maintaining the spiritual state obtained in prayer at all times. Whether asleep or awake, at work or rest, you should always remember God: you should be one of those who "are constantly at their prayers"» (Rumi, FIHI MA FIHI 15)
