why they can be sooner

or later

00:01:23--> 00:01:28

what will be the final de la sia

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

What's up? Cody I'm wanting

00:01:43--> 00:01:46

to be lagging in a shape on the rocking, have you

00:01:49--> 00:01:50


00:01:52--> 00:01:53

a lot of

00:01:55--> 00:02:23

he tells us about the role and the purpose of the we're on in our lives. The practical purpose and role of the for honoring our existence in our lives. A loss How do I tell that to tells us when a messy domina Poornima whoa Shiva, we are sending down we are continuing to send down little by little bit by bit piece by piece, I after Ayah from the from that which is a cure all.

00:02:24--> 00:02:44

Allah subhanaw taala told the prophets a lot he said at the time of Prophet that we are continuing over the span of 23 years to sit down to score art as he far away use the word tumor she finds a very specific word. It doesn't mean medication, da, it doesn't mean a remedy or she finds

00:02:45--> 00:02:47

a solution for problems.

00:02:48--> 00:03:12

Another place to look for omnibuses anything you've taught on the forum is not conjecture. The problem is not the product of someone's imagination. When I came to speak on eBay, rather than the brawn, it affirms reality, it confirms reality. What's initiating, it provides a very detailed elaborate structure

00:03:13--> 00:03:43

within which a human being can find meaning and purpose. Why would that matter, and specifically to manifestations of the upper arm, it is guidance through and through. And it is mercy through and through, in all situations, in all circumstances, at all times at all places for whom the volume is known for people who are willing to believe for people who will approach the book of Allah with an open mind and an open heart, the Koran will be guidance and mercy for them a solution for their problem.

00:03:44--> 00:03:50

When we take this type of look at the port, Allah, we look go looking for solutions, we find something very fascinating.

00:03:51--> 00:04:29

We have two problems amongst the many that many people might have. But there are two problems that are very prevalent in our communities today. There's a problem of spirituality, the spiritual disconnect, that many people experience, whether you want to talk about that from just having trouble kind of staying connected to the point of a crisis of faith, which many people struggle with, there's a spiritual disconnect in our communities. And secondly, we before our very eyes are witnessing the deterioration and the destruction, the crumbling of the institution of family,

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

something at a human level that is very, very necessary.

00:04:35--> 00:04:38

And the neuron provides a solution

00:04:39--> 00:04:54

or provides a very beautiful solution, a very practical solution and very miraculously, and this is the majesty of the book of Allah, that it provides a singular solution for both these problems as different as these problems facing.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

The idea that I recited in the beginning of the hook right here is I am

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

Number 238 from sources.

00:05:03--> 00:05:17

And I'd like to talk a little bit at least about the first part of the I had the message what it says, a lost power analysis Have you heard this word have to come from the root word, it means to protect something.

00:05:19--> 00:05:41

But it's not just simply the word for protected as a more sophisticated form of the verb. A more evolved form of the verb will have Iver fi MOBA. It has the element of hyperbole, it emphasizes the meaning. So and then have the who is the command form ls command.

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

So it doesn't just simply say protect.

00:05:45--> 00:05:59

Rather what I was saying when he says Happy Louis saying very carefully, very cautiously, very diligently, protect, safeguard, take care of and then the last is the word Allah.

00:06:00--> 00:06:03

This is the equivalent of a preposition in here.

00:06:04--> 00:06:16

Very simple. It means over on top of, but it's very interesting how much easier every word every letter of the book of a less precise, it is divine and it is miraculous in nature.

00:06:17--> 00:06:53

So when the Watchtower tada says upon over, why does he use that specific preposition, it invokes a certain imagery, it has a certain meaning to it a special meaning. Think about protecting something watching over something safeguarding something. So I want you to think of if you had a diamond in your possession, the most valuable asset or commodity that you possess, how would you go about arranging for it safekeeping protection, you will take that diamond, you will take that item, put it in the middle of a room that was dedicated to the protection of that item.

00:06:54--> 00:07:19

And then you will of course lock or secure that room. But then the very interesting thing to watch over it is you will position cameras, and those cameras will not be on the ground. Those cameras will not be on the side, those cameras will be on the ceiling, we're on the top of the walls, the upper part of the room, looking down at the item with the reason for that is the best vantage point is from on top.

00:07:21--> 00:07:37

Because when you want something from on top, nothing can come close to it nothing to get here without you seeing that thing first or that person first. And then those cameras are connected to monitors where somebody sits and keeps watch around the clock. So just like we would protect that diving that I know

00:07:39--> 00:07:39

a lot of

00:07:40--> 00:07:41

us have you

00:07:42--> 00:08:13

watch over, take care of protect around the clock, just like you would project that valuable item that asset that commodity. But what is the law telling us to protect here, a Salawat the prayers are five times daily prayers. Why? Number one, because they are our most valuable asset and commodity. They are our primary means of staying connected, becoming connected, and then remaining connected, staying connected, maintaining that connection to a loss.

00:08:14--> 00:08:36

It is what connects us to Allah. So he said very carefully, very cautious and very diligently, protect, save, keep watch over the prayers. And then of course, the luck continues was so often missed on the middle of the best prayer, what will win a battle team and stand for the sake of Allah alone in a state of total complete absolute submission and obedience.

00:08:38--> 00:08:58

Now this is the meaning of a very basic discussion on the meaning of that first part of that I. But this is what I like to call the zoomed in version. When you zoom in on each word, and you pick apart each word and understand what it means, but see the miraculous nature of the poor. And the beauty of a loss color

00:09:00--> 00:09:04

is that when you take a different look at it, it teaches you something different.

00:09:05--> 00:09:11

zoomed in, we pick apart each word and emphasizes our connection to a lot. But what happens when we zoom out?

00:09:13--> 00:09:16

zooming out provides you a different perspective, you know when you use a GPS

00:09:18--> 00:09:23

and you pull up your location on the GPS, and it zooms in all the way to pinpoint your location.

00:09:24--> 00:09:47

So now you know where you are, but you don't recognize what you're looking at. So instinctively, what do you click zoom out. And when you zoom out, you can see the nearby streets you click zoom out again you can see the freeway, the highways, the roads, the townships, whatever it is around there. And now you know exactly where you're located. You understand the context of what you were looking at.

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

When we zoom out from the parar take a zoomed out look at this ayah we learned something interesting. This I told you before this is number 238 from solo to Baba, the fascinating the room

00:10:00--> 00:10:25

markable thing is, this ayah is located in the middle of a passage, they're inserted, beginning and I am number 228. Going all the way to item number 242. That is the most detailed, the most detailed discourse, the most detailed discussion in the entire forum on the subject of divorce.

00:10:27--> 00:10:33

That entire passage to the three pages of lost power tonight tells us about divorce.

00:10:34--> 00:10:44

why it happens, how to avoid it, how to reconcile if reconciliation is not possible, the Learn the technicalities of the divorce, how to execute the divorce and follow through with it.

00:10:45--> 00:10:50

So this whole passage talks about divorce. And in the middle of that passage, Allah says happy.

00:10:52--> 00:11:03

Very carefully watch over the prayers. Now the question that you and I have to ask ourselves, is why in the middle of a passage about divorce, we'll also talk about protecting the prayer.

00:11:04--> 00:11:07

Because you see, when I talk, I have tangents.

00:11:09--> 00:11:16

I go here I go there I forget what I was talking about. Now I'm talking about this now that Allah subhana wa, tada does not have tensions.

00:11:17--> 00:11:41

This is a less collab. It's perfect. It's precise. So in a light in the middle of a discussion about divorce talks about protecting the prayer that has a divine purpose to it. So the scholars and will fascino they explain this to us. They tell us first and foremost, the reason why a lot emphasizes a lie here, in the middle of this discussion about divorce is to provide the first solution.

00:11:42--> 00:11:59

That if you if a family, if a married couple is struggling in their relationship with one another, everybody needs to go back to their corner from minutes, take a break from the action, and everyone needs to go back and reassess their connection with the law.

00:12:01--> 00:12:18

What is what is the condition of my relationship with the law? Because you see, Allah is the primary and the sole source of all bark and our blessing. And blessing in every aspect of our life comes to us from our relationship with Allah.

00:12:19--> 00:13:01

A lot of times and this is a reality of life. There are many people here probably you're working professionals, businessmen, family, men, and similarly mothers and, and people who have a lot of responsibilities wives and mothers, you have to understand one thing, this is not correct, it is unfortunate, but it is an unfortunate reality in our communities today. You know, when life picks up and things have gone and things get busy. And now you got you you finish college, get a job, you get married one kid, two kids, three kids. Now there's your side job and the side business and this and this and this and all of a sudden your table is full of things. Now one of the first thing that gets

00:13:01--> 00:13:03

left off to the side is a lot of times my time with

00:13:05--> 00:13:06

my my religion.

00:13:08--> 00:13:10

Now, so lives been pushed back.

00:13:11--> 00:13:23

So let's prioritize reminding this year that if you are struggling in your personal relationships, even your professional relationships, this is mainly because you are struggling in your primary relationship with the lungs.

00:13:25--> 00:13:35

So go back and reassess your connection with the law, Fitch in connection with a law and that's the first step towards fixing your connection with anyone else. Have you do either summarize.

00:13:36--> 00:14:18

But at the same time through this instruction, Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us something very beautiful here. And that is about the practical role. You don't want the greatest tragedies that has befallen us as movement today is the fact that something so powerful, so meaningful, so life altering and life changing as Salah has become a complete mirror ritual to us. That's a travesty. It's a tragedy upon us. So a lot teaches us here the practical benefits of prayer. So why isn't just simply a you know just ritual that we perform? No, no, it's a powerful communication with the law that has many many different levels of benefits to us.

00:14:19--> 00:15:00

And I'd like to explain just a few things point out a few things. That salon when we are regular particular concerned and implementing our salon properly salon instills. So I instills develops certain traits and characteristics within that individual that are very, very beneficial to that person, not just in their relationship with God, but even in their relationship with other people. I'd like to point out for such qualities, that's a lot helps us develop the personal development through prayer through salon. The first quality is a sense of responsibility. You could call this discipline

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

Guess what that scares people a sense of responsibility that may explain

00:15:07--> 00:15:08

so often.

00:15:09--> 00:15:17

Very early years 3:30am we dress off in Florida in Dallas, Texas at 6am 6:30am. So 3:30am

00:15:18--> 00:15:29

now, I had a very long day yesterday to yesterday, a very long day yesterday, traveling and all of this very tired, very exhausted. I know I have a long day ahead of me today.

00:15:31--> 00:15:51

But at the same time when my alarm goes off at 3am, or 3:30am 4am, and when my alarm goes off, then at that time, you know, you know that experience, the alarm goes off, you wake up, you hear the alarm, but you can feel every bone in your body. every ounce of your being aches and hurts

00:15:53--> 00:15:56

you you move your arm and you can feel your bones cracking.

00:15:58--> 00:16:06

But at that time, it doesn't matter how difficult it is how hard it is, I have to pull myself out of my bed. Why because I am responsible for something right now.

00:16:07--> 00:16:18

Just like when I have to drop my kids off at school in the morning, no matter how cold it is, or how tired I am. I do it no matter how difficult that is why cuz that is my responsibility.

00:16:19--> 00:16:35

Similarly, so often fettered by responsibility. So up to you, I hear lots of people who have a lot of things that need to get back to their school to work their jobs or businesses, their families. Some of the people who are sitting here at Juma have a stack of work on their desk this big.

00:16:36--> 00:16:45

But you left all of that you haven't even had time to have lunch today. But you left all of that and came here. Why? Because you are responsible for something right now. So that's the door.

00:16:47--> 00:16:48


00:16:49--> 00:16:52

when you're trying to wrap up everything and go home,

00:16:53--> 00:16:59

finish up your day, lock up your shop. But now before I take care of my responsibilities on how to last, so often,

00:17:00--> 00:17:18

when you get home, starting to get dark and cold outside, your feet are aching they're pulsing, it hurts so much. All you want to do is go home, kick off your shoes, put your feet up, you know, just eat some food, just relax. But first I got to take care of my responsibility so often loved it.

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

So often a shop

00:17:22--> 00:17:29

where the only thing you are physically capable of doing is going to sleep everywhere you sit down, you go to sleep mid conversation, you go to sleep.

00:17:30--> 00:17:33

But first I have to take care of my responsibility other shot.

00:17:34--> 00:17:35

So a lot of

00:17:37--> 00:17:44

it teaches us a sense of responsibility. One of the biggest problems we have right now, and a lot of times personal relationships is a lack of responsibility.

00:17:46--> 00:17:54

And a lack of responsibility is at the core of a lot of these personal problems that we have. The second quality is Allah teaches us develops within us

00:17:55--> 00:18:20

is the ability to sacrifice oneself self sacrifice, selflessness, the ability to put someone or something before ourselves. Again, look at the daily prayers. At the time physically, my body tells me I need to sleep. But more time I want to have lunch at a certain time, I need to finish up my work at time during the football game is on

00:18:22--> 00:18:24

time I need to have dinner go to sleep.

00:18:25--> 00:18:57

But But I have to sacrifice all of that. And put all of that aside and put a lot first sulla teaches me to do that. And again, a huge problem in personal relationships is when there are two people in a relationship, husband and wife for instance. And each one is to set on me me me what I need what I want what I need, it rips them apart. But when each person is fully invested 100% into the well being of the other taking care of the other. It brings them together pulls them together.

00:18:58--> 00:19:02

Salah teaches us that quality, that ability, day in and day out.

00:19:03--> 00:19:12

The third quality so law teaches us humility how to be humble. That's easy to understand. See, when we pray right now it doesn't matter who you are.

00:19:13--> 00:19:21

It doesn't matter how wealthy, how famous, how powerful, how educated, how handsome, how beautiful, it does not matter who you are.

00:19:22--> 00:19:25

When we say Allahu Akbar going to seduce

00:19:27--> 00:19:33

all of us will put our face on the ground. Where a minute ago right now somebody had their feet

00:19:34--> 00:19:56

where everyone's feet are. We're going to put our face there reminding us of all reality. It humbles us five times a day. And remember one very important lesson, arrogance that breaks our hearts humidity winds are solid teaches us to be humble. And the fourth and the final quality I mentioned here is forgiveness.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

So law teaches us to forgive

00:20:00--> 00:20:25

Because you see when we pray, we beg and we plead and we cry and we asked Hello Lucky's freaking love my new Valentina. She is woman kathira Oh, I messed up big time. When I was in Oba illa Anta no one can forgive sins except for you. Yeah Allah for Finley muffuletta, Mina, indigo or honey. So please forgive me wipe my slate clean as a favor from you and have mercy on me. in

00:20:26--> 00:20:40

you and only you are constantly forgiving, constantly merciful Yama, I beg and plead and I ask, and I asked the Lord, to forgive me and have mercy on me, but the Prophet of Allah Swati some taught us a very valuable principle to live by.

00:20:43--> 00:20:48

Someone who cannot show mercy to others, does not deserve to be shown any mercy.

00:20:49--> 00:21:28

If I can practice forgiveness and mercy in my own life with those people who are nearest and dearest to me, like my family members, what makes me think that I am entitled that I am deserving, that I am worthy of the forgiveness and mercy of Allah. Oh, my cannon will soon forgive whoever he wills. But why do I feel so confident about the mercy of the forgiveness of Allah when I practice any mercy, forgiveness, so five times a day when I beg and I asked a lot for forgiveness and mercy. It reminds me to be merciful and to be forgiving in my personal relationship. These are just a few benefits that we learned from salah and I want to talk about the Allahu taala and probably said it best when

00:21:28--> 00:21:53

he said men can and this Salafi will do it for the lady out of the whosoever will be irresponsible about his or her prayer will be even more irresponsible about everything else. Why from a nice coffee table in the lobby? Forgive a goofy thing, the lady because somebody who cannot be good to Allah, his Lord and His master Allah, why would you How would you ever expect that person to be good to anybody else?

00:21:54--> 00:22:36

So this is very important that we understand the practical benefit of souligner. Right. And I'll end on this particular notes here, the first part of the hubback. And that is, somebody could say, brother, I pray five times a day, for 15 years, five years, whatever. I don't see these benefits in my prayer life. There's one last very important ingredient that needs to be needs to be a part of the prayer. And that is what a line is messenger salami, some referred to as crucial apologist to summarize your call it quality. We need to have quality in our prayer that leads to the million dollar question. How do you get how do you get quality in your prayer? How do you get quality in

00:22:36--> 00:22:56

your prayer? How do you get for sure in your salon? There's a lot of different things. And we'll be having a discussion about them in the programs that were mentioned. But I'll give you one important thing. I've been talking here for about 25 minutes. Everyone is listening. There's a very simple reason why? Because you understand what I'm saying.

00:22:57--> 00:23:02

When I stand in my salon, I pray your day after day, year after year hear.

00:23:03--> 00:23:05

And I read through my salon.

00:23:07--> 00:23:07

A lot more. We

00:23:09--> 00:23:12

all have it. Do I understand what I'm reading what I'm saying?

00:23:13--> 00:23:28

And if I don't, it's not a big mystery why I have trouble focusing and concentrating in my prayer, why it lacks quality. So we need to make an effort to learn actually what we're saying in prayer what it means, so that we can engage in that conversation.

00:23:29--> 00:23:38

But along with that, I will admit it when I finally did it with the software awanee what happened when he said it was to me for Sofitel in

00:23:55--> 00:23:55


00:23:57--> 00:24:01

1818 in Nevada omala

00:24:02--> 00:24:03


00:24:04--> 00:24:06

amanu, sallu alayhi wa sallam Moses Lima

00:24:08--> 00:24:10

Mohammed in Africa arsenic was on the island.

00:24:12--> 00:24:13

When you see me now you see mad

00:24:17--> 00:24:18


00:24:24--> 00:24:25

me now

00:24:31--> 00:24:32


00:24:34--> 00:24:34

but you know,

00:24:36--> 00:24:37

a lot more fit than it

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

was out in the beginning. Also, don't forget to remember all of our brothers and sisters all across the world, wherever they are Syria, Philistine, Burma, wherever all across this world wherever our brothers and sisters are suffering, remember to make to offer them May Allah subhanaw taala help them May Allah alleviate their sufferings may have lost power.

00:25:00--> 00:25:03
