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, head, and face; indeed all the limbs and their actions are humbled, even

speech. This is why the Prophet 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. The

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 (salah). allah

has praised those who have Khushu`, in the prayer.

Al-Hasan, may Allah have mercy on him, said, ‘When you stand in prayer, stand in due

obedience as Allah has ordered you, beware of negligence and looking (here and there),

beware that Allah be looking at you while you are looking at something else, asking Allah

for Paradise and taking refuge with Him from the Fire, yet your heart is heedless, not

knowing what the tongue is saying.’

Hudhayfah said, ‘The first thing you will lose of your religion will be Khushu` and the

last thing you will lose of your religion will be the prayer, and it is well possible that

there is no good in a person who prays, and soon will come a time when you shall

enter a large Masjid and not see a single person with Khushu`.’

This small treatise deals with the correct and accurate meaning of Khushu` and with

three extremely benficial appendixes.
