Course Introduction

What can we do to improve the quality of our salah?
We pray, go through the physical motions, recite the surahs and duas, and discharge the obligation. Is that all that is expected of us?
Allah, Exalted is He, says, ‘And establish prayer to remember me’ (20:14). The Prophet, peace be upon him, said, ‘When one of you prays, he is in intimate discourse with His Lord…’ (al-Bukhari). Furthermore, the Prophet, peace be upon him, took pleasure in salah.
This and other verses, and many hadiths like the one above, demonstrate a dimension and quality to salah that require more from us. An attitude to salah that goes beyond physical movements, and verbal incantations, a dimension that requires mindful devotion, presence of mind, and an awareness of Allah’s presence.
This is called Khushu.

This course is about khushu. It will show us that khushu is not just a word that expresses an abstract unattainable spiritual state but a requirement of prayer that every believer must pursue with all their heart, and all their effort.

This course will show you how khushu can be attained.

The course is online on-demand, so you will have access to it all the time to review and double check your knowledge, from anywhere in the world at any time. Then armed with this knowledge, you will practise improving the quality of your salah.

There will also be a scheduled live Q&A session with Shaykh Shams to help you with anything you need clarified or any questions specific to you.
