Certainly, many people are unaware of what should be the etiquette of a Muslim on Friday. Most of them are unaware of its significance. Most of them do not exactly consider the Friday Prayer as obligatory. Hence, they miss it intentionally. Many people in Islaamic countries, because they get holiday on this day, they spent the whole day either by sleeping, or going out for picnic or by playing cards, chess, cricket, hockey, carom board, or many other haraam games. They do not know the significance of the Friday Prayer and its sermon. Thus, they come to the mosque according to their wishes. They do not practice the correct teachings of Islaam. They don’t know the importants of cleansing on Friday. They come to the mosque anyhow they like and they wear any kind of dress which they like. They are unaware of proper behavior, one should have while entering the mosque on Friday. Most of them are unaware of what a Muslim should do before and after the Friday Prayer, what a Muslim should do in the mosque while attending the sermon in the mosque, etc. This book is mainly written to guide the Muslims to follow the correct teachings of Islaam on Friday.

33 Ways Of Developing Khushoo’ In Salaah (Prayer)

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/33-ways-of-developing-khushoo-in-salaah-prayer.jpg

Muhammad Salih Al-Munajjid

Salaah is the greatest of the practical pillars of Islam, and khushoo’ in prayer is required by sharee’ah. When Iblees, the enemy of Allaah, vowed to mislead and tempt the sons of Adam and said “Then I will come to them from before them and behind them, from their right and from their left…” [al-A’raaf 7:17, interpretation of the meaning], one of his most significant plots became 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 khushoo’ will be the first thing to disappear from the earth, and we are living in the last times, the words of Hudhayfah (may Allaah be pleased with him) are particularly pertinent to us: “The first thing of your religion that you will lose is khushoo’, and the last thing that you will lose of your religion is salaah. There may be a person praying who has no goodness in him, and soon you will enter the mosque and not find anyone who has khushoo’.” (al-Madaarij, 1/521).

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 the loss of khushoo’, the need for some discussion of this matter is quite obvious. The following is a reminder to myself and to my Muslim brothers, and I ask Allaah to make it of benefit.

This book talks about on how to develop Khushoo in prayers, rulings on Khushoo, the means of developing Khushoo, knowing the advantages of Khushoo in prayers and etc. Continue reading

The Humility In Prayer

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/the-humility-in-prayer.jpg

Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 82 | Size: 5.5 MB

This is a treatise we have written concerning humility (Khushu’) and the hearts meekness and breaking (inkisar) before the Lord. The basic meaning of Khushu’, is the softness of the heart, its being gentle, still, submissive, broken, and yearning. When the heart is humble, so too is the hearing, seeing, heard, and face; indeed all the limbs and their actions are humbled, even speech. This is why the Prophet (saw) would say in his bowing (ruku), “My hearing, sight, bones, and marrow are humbled to You,” another narration has, “and whatever my foot carries.” One of the Salaf saw a man fidgeting in his prayer and remarked, ‘If the heart of this person was humble, so too would his limbs be.’ The source of the Khushu, that takes place in the heart is the gnosis of Allah’s greatness, magnificence, and perfection. Teh more gnosis a person has of Allah, the more Khushu’ he has. The greatest action of worship which manifests the Khushu, of the body to Allah is the prayer (Salaah). Allah has praised those who have Khushu’ in the prayer. Continue reading
