Salaam Alaykum

I am familiar with arabic a bit, and I understand what I'm saying. I don't translate words to English while I'm praying. Practice and don't be so sensitive about this. You should pay attention to Allah and your words %100, but it should not make you doubtful about correctness of your Salaat. Personally I am more sensitive on praying at Prime Time, Salaat-ul-layl, and avoiding sins.

It makes sense.  

the Salat / Prayer involves your heart (i.e. your center, your entire being, all that you are).  It is about being aware, being conscious, being present. 

 

It is not about how well your think, or use your mind.  If it was then it becomes hard.  

 

But in prayer no effort is required, because in prayer you should be using your mind much.  Your mind is in fact a distraction.  so use your heart.  simple BE!  no effort is required.   simply be conscious of your own awareness of the divine presence that are in the words uttered on your tongue.   Each word your utter, especially the names of God are in fact a doorway to Eternity.  The eternal is present in each and every word of God.  You don;t have to think about it, but simply feel it in your heart.  feel the beauty, the bliss and the eternal peace in your salat.
