السلام عليكم The basic meaning of khushu` is the softness of the heart: it is being gentle, still, submissive, and yearning. When the heart is humble, so too is the hearing, sight, head, and face; indeed, all the limbs and their actions are humbled, even speech. Khushu perfects worship.
We are best friends who have made this blog to spread Islamic knowledge that will إن شاء الله help us all attain khushu and perfect our worship of Allah the Exalted. We hope you find our posts beneficial and share them so they benefit others.
"Do you know who is most generous? ... Allah is the Most Generous, then I am most generous to humankind, and the most generous people after me will be those who will acquire knowledge and then disseminate it. (They) will come on the Day of Resurrection singly, like a ruler." [Al-Tirmidhi]
It has been reported by the wife of the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH), Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her):
"I asked the Messenger of Allah if I knew which night was the Night of Power and what should I say during that night? He, The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: Say, ‘Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘anni’ (Translation: ‘O Allah, indeed you are the pardoner, you love to pardon, so pardon me’)."
The Prophet (PBUH) said, “Whoever established prayers on the night of Qadr out of sincere faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven; and whoever fasts in the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith, and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven.”
(Narrated By Abu Huraira. Sahih Bukhari: Volume 003, Book 031, Hadith Number 125.)
