The Divine Closeness

Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad invites us to reflect on the meaning of khushu' and its role in enabling us to turn inward and attain the fruits of Ramadan.

Khushu' means calmness, serenity, tranquility, dignity and humility. One gains khushu' from a fear of Allah and the sense that He is always watching. It means that one's heart stands before its Lord with humility and submission.
