Suddenly I felt uneasiness, somewhat giddy or atypical vertigo and I have to control myself not to fall down or fainted.  But I got an almost a total thought-block and need to concentrate a lot with some difficulty to remember that I have to say the definite “Niat” or my aim and objective of that prayers.
