Dr. Muhammad Salah - How to develop khushu'

Dr. Muhammad Salah is one of the well-know scholars in US

He teaches at Al-Azhar University,Shariah Academy and London College.
He speaks Arabic and English fluently

He obtained his BA in Shari'ah and Islamic Law from the University of Al-Azhar and BA in pharmacology.
He obtained a four-year diploma in Muslim arts and Arabic calligraphy
He obtained the pre-master diploma in Islamic studies from the American Open University.
The following episodes are taken from a series on Huda TV called (The Prophet's Prayer) and it Dr. Muhammad Salah discusses Islamic prayer, and issues related to it. The complete series is available on youtube for those interested. However in this post I will only share episodes that deals with quite a crucial part of a Muslim's prayer and that is khushu'.

In order for Allah Subhanho wa Tala to be pleased with a prayer and to accept it, one must be in complete khushu', meaning their mind must be focusing on Allah and the prayer only, because basically as we pray we are between the hands of Allah, and how would it look like if we are communicating with Him with no reverence or consciousness? Pretty rude I'll say xD

The following four episodes explain what exactly is khushu' and how one might develop in it in their prayer. I've embedded a youtube playlist that includes them all (this is the first time I've come across this youtube feauture. You can scroll through the episodes either mb the arrow buttons on the side of the video area or click on the little icon that's on the right of the play button to see the list of videos invluded in the playlist) I've also linked the link to the playlist on youtube, incase you don't like the embedded playlist =P

Hope they enlighten you as much as they enlightened me.
