A mouse fell in love with a camel

It is being said that a mouse fell in love with a camel,It was love at first sight.To express the love the mouse called the camel over to its house and said;
The house and everything you find in it is yours.The camel looked at the house and said;
"Either you find a house that befits the one you love,or you find another love that befits your house".
Ibn AL Qayyim (Rahimahu ALLAH)said,
"The same goes to you;Either make your salah befitting of your Lord or seek a Lord who is fitting of your Salah."
What then can be said to many musllims now adays who are neglectful of the importance of khushou'and concentration in Salah,and donot strive within themselves during every Salah to perfect it for the sake of ALLAH(SWT)
IBN AL QAYYIM(RAHIMAHU ALLAH) also said in the same book;
"It was said to one of them that:We find ourselves distracted in our Salah.
He said,"Is the Jannah are you thinking about or are the the Hur al-Ayn(Women of Paradise)that have take your minds away,or is it the day of judement that is causing you to be distracted?"
They replied;Rather it is affairs of this worldly life that is distracting us.
He said:It is more beloved to me that go between spearheads than that which you just mentioned.
You stand in your prayers with your body,directing your face to the Qiblah,while your heart is directed to a different territory?
Woe to you!
The prayer of yours is not worthy of being a mahr(dowry) for paradise,how then can it be befitting for attaining the love of ALLAH(SWT)?
