33 Ways of Developing Al Khushoo’: Humility and Devotion in Prayer

Khushoo’ (khushu’) is often translated as devotion, humility or concentration in salah (prayer). Understandably, it is a critical component of salah. In ’33 Ways of Developing Khushoo’: Humility and Devotion in Prayer’, Shaykh Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid gives us a simple, step-by-step approach to regain khushoo‘ that uses the excellent example of the prayer of the Prophet (peace be upon him) to guide us, so that we can truly return to a state of humility and devotion before our Lord.

Shaykh Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid’s little book is perhaps one of the most widely-circulated among Muslims today. This is because the topic touches worshippers where it hurts—we know that we often lapse into an automatic sort of prayer when we lose concentration. The Shaykh points out that this loss of concentration really stems from a lack of humility and devotion—in Arabic, khushoo‘.

His aim in writing this book is to help us to get back that khushoo‘. His step-by-step approach makes it simple. He gives practical advice and uses the excellent example of the prayer of the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him) to guide us, so that as worshippers, we can truly return to a state of humility and devotion before the Lord.
