Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

Developing Khushu in the prayer is a practice we strive to achieve. Khushu (Calmness; concentration; humility and being present-minded in Salah) is one of the greatest assets a Muslim can possess in his faith. It comes with struggle; perseverance; and patience and is obtained only by those who work for it; who really set their sights where they should be.

Prayer is the greatest of the practicals of Islam, and khushoo in prayer is required by Shariah. One of Shaytaan's (Satan) most significant plots become to divert people from Salaah by all possible means and to whisper to them during their prayer so as to deprive them of the joy of this worship and cause them to lose the reward for it.

As khushu will be the first thing to disappear from the earth, and we are living in the last times, the words of Hudhayfah (radiy Allaah anhu) are particularly pertinent to us. "The first thing of your religion that you will lose is Khushu, and the last thing that you will lose of your religion is Prayer."

There may be a person praying who has no goodness in him, and soon you will enter the Masjid and not find anyone who has Khushuu.

Because of what every person knows about himself, and because of the complaints that one hears from many people about waswaas (insinuating thoughts from Shaytaan) during the Salaah and loss of khushu, the need for some discussion of this matter is quite obvious.

Alhamdulillah, this is such an amazing website. I think it has books for your different needs in Islamic growth and development. I recently purchased this book as I always like to ensure that my acts of worship are being done according to Qur'an and Sunnah and that it is being done to the best of my ability. I am excited to start reading this book in sha Allah as this should be very interesting to see what else I can implement in my prayer and what I can improve on. May Allah allow me to retain all that I learn and apply it to my daily prayer Ameen

Jazaka Allah khair we appreciate the support and pray Allah rewards you in both worlds and helps you develop khushu in salat so you can truly taster the sweetness of prayer ameen.
