Tazkeer Bil Quran – Deen

Disclaimer: I attend a Tazkeer Bil Quran (Reminders from Quran) course at Al-Mawrid Institute Canada, and my instructor is Mr. Malik Faisal Aslam. I take notes in order to be able to remember important points from the lecture/discussions and decided to share the same in synoptic form here, as and when I am able to. My only objectives are (a) to organize my thoughts and (b) to share and help anyone interested in learning about these, as I am. If you find a mistake, it is entirely from me, and I sincerely apologize. I am not a theology expert, so please form your own opinions. Thank You.

Khushu & Khuzu

Yakhsoon (being afraid) comes from Khashiyat (Khushu), which means Abasement before the power of Allah; Fear of being answerable to Allah SWT.

Khushu is usually spoken in tandem with another word, Khuzu or Khudhu, which means thinking of oneself as lesser, when presenting yourself to Allah SWT. Modesty or Humility.

Together, Khushu and Khuzu mean veneration to the Almighty.
