The humility expressed by a believer in his prayers via prostration is ultimate, expressing to the creator, that no one is more supreme in the eyes of this believer. Allah, the Almighty, the most Forgiving has expressed to His creations that He is keenly listening to the pleas of those who are searching for Him in their prayers and prostrations.
Rising above our weaknesses, aiming to achieve humility, simplicity, piety, righteousness, and sense of non-attachment with the worldly affairs, can aid us in climbing the tallest of mountains. Pleasing our supreme King with our weak attempts can help us in making this earth a blessing for all. Let us strive to feel the pain of our near and dear ones, being of assistance to those in need, lending a helping hand even when we ourselves are falling short, only for gaining Allah’s pleasure.
The salah needs to be filled with our heart, mind and soul, being fearful of standing in front of Allah, while humbly praising Him and aiming for jannah in the hereafter, in sha Allah. The khushu and khudu, the humility, the devotion, the submissiveness, the humbleness of our limbs, the alertness of our body parts, these are the required elements of a salah which Allah almighty will accept in the akhirah. The true essence and spirit of salah revolves around the presence of khushu and khudu, meaning inward and outward submission and devotion respectively, praising Allah and communicating with Him with our deepest interest and love. The heart remaining free of any worldly worries and tensions while our body exhibits submission of even the tiniest body part.
