Moving at a Measured Pace During Prayer | Developing Khushu In The Prayer
by The Islamic Book Cafe on Mar 15, 2023
The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to move at a measured pace during Salah, allowing every bone to return to its place.
Abu Qatadah (may Allah be pleased with him) said, 'The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
'The worst type of thief is the one who steals from his prayer.' He said, 'O Mssenger of Allah, how can a person steal from his prayer?' He (peace be upon him) said, 'by not doing ruku and sujud properly.'
Abu Abd-Allah al-Asha'ri (may Allah be pleased with him) said; 'The prophet (peace be upon him) said,
'The one who does not do ruku properly, and pecks in sujud, is like a starving man who eats only one or two dates; it does not do him any good at all.'
The one who does not move at a measured pace in his prayer cannot have Khushu because haste is a barrier to khushu and pecking like a crow is a barrier to reward.Book Excerpt From: Developing Khushu In The Prayer
