One of the areas we struggle with is observing Khushu during our salat offering. Below is a gentle and beneficial advise on how to gain khushu through sujood. May Allah continue to make it easy for us. Ameen

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem

Sujood (Prostration)How beautifully explained :
In prostration (sujood), Having good expectations and hopes from your Rabb is one of the best forms of relieving anxiety and stress. For no one who hopes for good from the Creator of the heavens and the earth gets anything less than what he expects.

Dr Tawfique Chowdhury defines 12 Ways to Prostrate With Your Heart:

-Don’t lift your head off the floor until you get at least one Subhana Rabbiyal ‘Ala that comes from the heart, mind, tongue, and limbs

-Zoom out; picture yourself like there’s a camera over you that goes up and up and up and help yourself with feeling and becoming small in front of Allah ‘Azza waJal.

-Ask for at least three permissible things you want in each sajadah.

-If Shaytaan comes to you telling you that you’re showing off if you make a long sujood, make it even longer!

-Eliminate the thought of time from your mind.

-Picture yourself making sujood in Makkah, or imagine every single believer making sujood on the Last Day.

-Realize that Allah the Almighty has the complete power and right to destroy you right then and there for the millions of times you’ve slipped, made mistakes, etc.

-Do sujood in random places and vary as much as you can, as every piece of ground you’ve prostrated on will testify for you on the Day of Judgement InshaAllah

-If you can’t shed at least one tear in sujood or during prayer, then remember the sunnah of Umar (ra) when he would pretend to cry if he couldn’t.

-Imagine Rasul Allah Sallalahu alaihi wa sallam , making sujood

-Do sujood al-shukr (the prostration of thankfulness). The Prophet Sallalahu alaihi wa sallam, prostrated frequently in response to a calamity or a blessing that came to him . Revive this forgotten sunnah in your daily life InshaAllah

-Let’s End With a Beautiful Incident From the Seerah - Rabi’a bin Ka’b (ra), a companion of the Rasul Allah Sallalahu alaihi wa sallam, said: I was with Allah’s Messenger Sallalahu alaihi wa sallam, one night and I brought him water and what he required. He said to me: “Ask [anything you like].” I said: “I ask your company in Paradise.” He said: “Anything else besides it?” I said: “That is all (that I require).” He said: “Then help me to achieve this for you by devoting yourself often to prostration.” [Muslim]

Sujood is the greatest thing a Muslim can do; it’s the one thing Shaytaan wouldn’t do!

O Allah, make us of the saajideen (the people who prostrate to You) — make us increase our sujood, make our hearts present, elevate us through every sajadah, and erase our sins, ameen!

Kindly forward as much as you can. If someone's khushu' in sujood on qiyaam increases after reading this In sha Allah, Allah SWT will reward you too of experiencing/tasting khushu' in your ebadah'Sujood (Prostration).
