By Ibn Qayyim Al Jawzziyah, Dar as-Sunnah, paperback, 96 pages
A book that takes the reader through a vivid journey of the stages of prayer and their profound spiritual significance – combined with the physical actions that symbolise submission, surrender, and humility to Allah.
Today's pace of life has created an imbalance in many people's priorities, especially in diminishing spiritual fulfillment. Seldom do we find contentment or a sense of purpose in our daily routine; Masjids are running on the hollowness of its congregations, homes have become dry of personal uplift. This is due to a distinct lack of understanding of what our prayer means and what it demands of us. Prayer is a fundamental act of worship every Muslim strives to perfect, and it is the first thing about which Allah will question mankind on the Day of Judgment.
Imam Ibn Qayyim's 'Inner Dimensions of the Prayer' identifies impediments to achieving khushu' (mindfulness) in prayer, and beautifully explains some profound benefits and wisdom behind actions performed therein and the words proscribed.
