Once again he will be subject to the feelings of pain and anguish that his heart endured before he started praying, all of which melted away as soon as he commenced his salah. At that point, his heart rushes to enjoy the nearness of Allah for the last time, to bask His grace, and to be saved from the disruptiveness of his worldly affairs.
