Why have we not yet benefited from this Ramadhaan?

بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله ، وبعد

If we have not yet benefited from this Ramadhaan, then know it is because of the lack of sincerity and Khushoo` among us, except for those whom Allaah تعالى protected:

The Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

أول شيء يرفع من هذه الأمة الخشوع حتى لا ترى فيها خاشعا

“The very first thing to be raised from this Ummah is Khushoo` (awe, fear of Allaah) until there is not a single person in it with khushoo`.” [Saheeh al-Jaami` (2569) and graded as “Saheeh” by Shaikh al-Albaanee]


He صلى الله عليه وسلم also said:

أوَّلُ ما يُرْفَعُ مِنَ الناسِ الخشوعُ

“The first thing to be raised from the people is Khushoo`.” [Saheeh al-Jaami` (2576) and graded as “Saheeh” by Shaikh al-Albaanee]


Abu Dardaa’ رضي الله عنه said to one of the companions:

إِنْ شئتَ لأُحَدِّثَنَّكَ بأوِّلِ علْمٍ يُرْفَعُ منَ الناسِ الخشوعُ يوشِكُ أنْ تدخُلَ مسجِدَ جماعَةٍ فلا تَرَى فيه رجلًا خاشِعًا

“If you wish I will tell you what the first type of knowledge taken from the people will be - it is al-Khushoo` (the fear of Allaah- humility, submissiveness) such that if you enter a Jaami'ah Masjid, you will not see a single man who has Khushoo`.” [Sunan al-Tirmidhee (2653) and graded as “Saheeh” by Shaikh al-Albaanee]
