Without Him the law salatu salam ala Rasulillah Hamdu lillahi Hamden UAF in Yama who you will Kaffee OMA Zita or SallAllahu ala Sayidina Muhammad in Walla early he was such a huge marine

and We're looking now at the hadith of earner Sybil Malik or the Allahu Allah Allah and who, who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Manasa Salatin, Fela Musa Leah Manasa salata and failure so li ha, either the Corrado lurk afar or the Lucha electronic, whoever forgets a prayer, then let him pray that prayer when he remembers it.
There is no Kufa there is no expiation for that forgotten prayer except that the person prays that prayer at the moment in which he remembers the prayer. Right. So this is talking about someone who forgets a prayer but there's another individual as well, who sleeps in and is unable to pray because you slept in. Both scenarios are the same. And the Prophet told us in another variation of this very Hadith as well, that whoever forgets a prayer or sleeps in our nama on her or sleeps in fell, you will suddenly have either the gara Ha, then let him pray it when he remembers, meaning when he wakes up.
Okay, so this obviously, can happen to people specifically when it comes to fajr prayer when it comes to the sleeping in part, right. Someone is trying, they're trying their best to wake up, but Fajr is extremely early or they came home late from work. They tried their best, they put the alarm clock on, and it didn't work out they woke up late. So the prophets I said, Let me said if you forget or you sleep in, then pray at the moment in which you remember or at the moment in which you wake up. laka Farah della Illa Dalek, there is no other explanations you have to do. This is very important, by the way. And this also is telling of the farsightedness of the prophets are settling
because now you have some people that say, Hey, you have some prayers that you have forgotten. Okay, for every prayer, you have to give this much sadaqa and I can take it for you. You've heard of that, right? They will there are people out there charlatans that will say okay, you know what? You have missed 10 prayers or you've forgotten a specific prayer. You don't know what to do about it. Okay, well, I can take an expiation and the Prophet thing for now Kufa. Well, Erica Farah della Illa Dalek, there are no expectations. That's it.
You just make up the prayer. This is if you forgot, or you slept in? How about if someone intentionally leaves a prayer? This is the tricky question.
According to the overwhelming majority of the scholars,
up person that leaves a prayer intentionally, they have to also make up their prayer as well. They have to also make up that prayer as well. So there is no choice according to this particular opinion. And this is the opinion of all of the major schools of thought. The only people who disputed about this are two, or maybe a little bit more than that few. Let's put it this way. Scholars over the course of history, the two very famous ones are IGNOU hasm, a va Haiti, the one who basically is one of the leaders in the literate literalist school it has them very famous scholar, very reputable scholar as well. And so same with Ibn Taymiyyah Rahim Allah. Those are the
only two major figures in history that disputed this that if a person intentionally leaves a prayer, do you have to make it up or not? Is it possible? Let's put it this way. Is it possible to make it up or not? Because in the Hadith, the prophet is only giving the option of making up the prayer to two categories of people. Someone who forgets and someone who sleeps in. So from this angle had been Tamia. And also it hasn't. They said, actually, you know what? That option is only given to the person who sleeps in or forgets his prayer. How about someone who's intentionally doing
yet is knows the time is finishing. He just doesn't want to prayer.
lets it go. They say there is no way to make this up. Now
what did it what do you do?
It hasn't he says in Mohalla he says that just do as much height as you can. There is no way to make this prayer up because there was a specific time that Allah had prescribed for this prayer. Beginning time Djibouti is Hadith very famous. He came and taught the prophets and sell them the beginning of each prayer and the time of that prayer, and then the end of each period and the time of that prayer. So when the Prophet has already taught the beginning and the end, he Gibreel has already taught the beginning and the end time. That means when you go out of that time, there is no way to make it up. You understand?
Why is this? Why am I even mentioning this? It's probably better to just tell people to make it up.
How about someone like it's reasonable if someone missed one prayer, two prayers a day worth to tell them okay, go and make it up and don't make a habit of this. You've made a sin make dua to Allah azza wa jal, and how about someone who comes to us, he is a Muslim, but he hasn't prayed for the past 15 years.
He says, I have always believed that there is no God worthy of worship except for Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is His servant and Messenger. And I've always believed it's an obligation for me to pray and to give zakat and go for hygiene. Too fast as well. I've always believed that the Quran is revealed by Allah to Muhammad, I've always believed that the prophets I send them has guidance in the form of his sunnah as well. But I just was a sinful human being. We're not going to say this person was a non Muslim. And now he has come back to Islam. Forget all of those prayers know, this person. How do we handle them? Do we tell him make up 15 years of prayer?
Personally, I think this is not reasonable.
I don't think this is reason they are literally as I said, majority of the scholars, there are a few who give the fatwa that go and make up 15 years of prayer. I don't think that's reasonable, because now you're trying to get this person to come back to Islam. You tell them okay, unlike the average person, you have to do twice as much.
You're going to turn a lot of people away from Islam.
Especially because we have no conclusive evidence, saying that all of those prayer needs to be made up. That's why I say that. And that's it's very important that a person looks at the scenario as well. When they're giving the fatwa you have someone like this, they're coming back to Islam. It's, it's an asset for them, for them to come back to Islam. And we know that there's a generality of the Hadith of the prophets of Salaam, where he said adobea to the Jubu, malerkotla, the Toba, that repentance ends up removing the sin of everything that is prior to it. And in this case, the prayer the previous prayers being made up there are some there are some Athar, there are some statements of
the self to this effect as well. I'll give you a couple that has encoded it hasn't quoted that ignorant ignorant model the Allahu Taala and he saw a man he was reading. He was reading a document
for Karla Huya hurdle car he said to him, oh, reader, it all readers, someone is sitting around reading something, but he got occupied from prayer because of that book. He was reading. People used to get occupied from prayer because of books now it's the phones, right? So you saw him reading something and that made him busy from the prayer. So I told him, he said that in the whole la sala de Lima LEM, you saw less volatile li workouts for solely through Mahatma Burdock.
He said there is no prayer
meaning there's no prayer accepted. There is no prayer for the person who doesn't pray on time.
What does this mean? If you remember the saying that there's no such thing as making up a prayer you deliberately leave and he said so pray and then pick up the sofa and read as much as you want
it's very similar to someone sitting on their sofa nowadays and using the phone and they're like all there's a little bit of time left a little bit time time completely exits, and Salah is finished. So I thought it would be applicable as well. Another one is that
Omar Israel kebab as he was giving one of the sermons, he said that we're in sala de la Rockton Sherpa, hula hula lovey, that there is a specific time that Allah has described for you
each prayer, this is a condition, Salah is not acceptable, except within this time, all of the shows that if the salah has been deliberately kept or taken out of the time, then there is no way to make it up. Now I'm not saying this is the better opinion or that is the better opinion. I'm saying this is the reasonable thing to say to a person who comes to Islam, after 510 1517 years of being away from Islam, you tell them make up all of those years, you're going to turn people away. And I've actually seen this as well. Sometimes people they want to come back to Islam, but they said this is too much. You tell them okay, no problem make dua to Allah azza wa jal and fix your ways from Iran,
and do as much good as you can. Because you've been very neglectful. You've been very neglectful, you can get them to become better people in this way. But if you force the person and you tell them if you don't do this, and as I said, some people, they ended up making a business out of this. They calculated a is amount, how much would it cost to expiate every prayer. So they do a complete calculation, you go to them, they say, okay, you can print make 17 years of prayer, you can make them up, or you can give me this much money, and I'll handle it for you.
This is really happening out there. Maybe you've come across some of this as well. But the idea is the prophets that there's no explanation in those two cases, except that you make up the prayer in the case of someone deliberately leaving prayer make dua to Allah and fix your ways from here on in sha Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will be
most forgiving evening like to Allah but this is also an opportunity to give advice to the person who is forgetting their purse who is missing their purse who is deliberately leaving their purse, the prophets Allah Allahu Allah said, Let me said that the first thing that each person will be questioned about on the Day of Judgment is a Hadith and Sunnah anatomy, the authentic, that the first thing that every single person will be questioned about on the Day of Judgment is your prayer. For in sallow hat, if the prayer happens to be right, the prophets have said limbs advocate a flower and then that person will be successful, he will be successful, what in first advocate Harboe
hustle. If the prayer is corrupt, then the person would be completely lost as well. He would be a loser on the Day of Judgment. So it's very, very necessary, very necessary, that we look after these prayers, at least to ensure that they're done in the time, it really doesn't take much out of our lives to make sure that the obligations of the prayer are done. Let's do the math. How long does it take to do the bare minimums of solitude? Fudger? Maybe three to five minutes? Let's keep it in the middle four minutes. Okay. How long would it take for a lot of law?
Also, let's say another five minutes. Okay, we're at about nine minutes. Now. We can add a minute in there 10. Let's just say an average of five minutes prepare, how much is that 25 minutes of your day. That's it. And even that is divided over the entire day. And on top of that there are so many benefits in your prayer that are there for you. On a physical level as well. There are some doctors that have researched the different
basically exercises you ended up doing in your prayer. These are kind of like stretches. It really is I don't want to basically make the prayer look like a bunch of exercises because some people they have that in their mind but it is true. There are a number of exercises you're doing you're doing a bunch of stretches, which do help your muscles they help your tendons they help your joints. So there's other benefits in it that Allah subhanaw taala has placed as well just by making sure that you are giving that one thing to Allah azza wa jal on
in every single day. And at the end of the day, this is your iman, this is literally your iman Allah calls prayer Eman in the Quran.
Allah subhanaw taala he says that Allah will not leave you will Dr. Iman, Allah will not waste away your iman
and the MUFA city and also the prophets of Salam before all of them. They say you didn't have a city and they explain that this Iman is referring to prayer over here. Allah subhana wa Tada will not waste away your iman meaning your prayers that choose to pray towards bathe and McCullough so this is your email, this is your faith. This is one of the manifestations of the faith of a person in the very first thing that every single person will be asked about on the Day of Judgment.
Hadith number 36 The hadith number 36 Is the hadith of
Hi, I'm Lisa, I'm sorry, who said that? His father said
Apple said he didn't hooded he had told him I was so happy.
He said to him, he said to a man's father,
he said that I know that you love the sheep and you love the wilderness. You're always out and about, I know you love the sheep. And you love
the wilderness meaning you like living off grid basically you like living in remote areas you'd like living away from the city. You don't like city life you'd like
outside of the city.
And so doubles are easy like that as well for either
Quinta fie runamok Elba de attic for event table sala de for futsal tech, if you happen to be in your
body or if you happen to be in the wilderness if you happen to be out side of the city.
And then you make other than that make sure you make the other than very loud. For inner hula is my real mother. So till then a genuine wala insome, Washington, Illa Shahidullah Oyamel piano, because the voice of your Advan is not heard by anyone, neither a djinn nor a human being or anything else as well, even inanimate objects as well. Things that don't have little that don't have a soul. Even those objects if they hear your other than they will come on the day of judgment as witnesses.
So this hadith is encouraging making a van.
Now of course this is in body right. And body is saying that I will say that Audrey said this words but I chased this hadith down. It's also reported from the prophets of salaam as well. These same similar words are also reported from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which basically say that give the Athan even if you're outside in the wilderness. So that means the Sunnah of Adan is not particular to the masjid This is very important. A lot of times people think that the Sunnah of Adan is only specific to the master that I only give the Adan when I'm at the masjid or the Medina is only to be given at the masjid. That's not the case the Prophet is saying and I will say reading
Audrey is reporting from the Prophet SAW Salem that even if you happen to be out and about in the wilderness you happen to be in, in a remote area, there's no one there to hear your Athan except for maybe the odd person walking around or maybe some jinn and just objects all around you make the event they will all come as witnesses for you, on the day of judgment or than my brothers. Often people forget is a very, very virtuous action.
It is an act of worship. It is a very virtuous action. And there are so many a hadith that show us the virtue of this action or this other than that we have it so preserved literally, we have till today these words of the Adan preserved one mouth to another mouth to another mouth all the way to be done or the Allahu Allahu Anhu. And also to even Omar Maktoum, the two more things of the prophets of Salam. And the prophet had another one as well.
And, and so these are than the words are actually preserved in this way, I literally learned from my teacher in the Asad Burma with the Adan who heard it from his teacher who heard is from his teacher all the way down to the sahaba. So this Adan is actually preserved, every single word of it is very preserved. And by doing this addendum then gets great reward. So I encourage every single person to learn the other. Why? Well, because pretty much all massages in Canada, do not have a Muslim.
If you go to the Eastern world, usually there is a Muslim
and there is an imam.
In the Western world, we're barely able to have any map.
So most of the massage, I think maybe there's only a few exceptions in the entire country, maybe if even that don't really have.
So it's an opportunity for anyone who has the ability to give the Adan to get this reward. Otherwise, if you were to go back home, wherever that back home is for you there is going to be a thing that is fixed. No other person will be given the gun so
He is the only one who will be getting this reward.
You understand? Whereas here, it's an opportunity for anyone who has the willingness to get this reward. And I'll tell you some of the rewards of that. Anyone can get up and give the other you know, at the July time, we're struggling to find them.
I just come up and I stand up and I say cerametallic Allah, I don't know who's gonna give the event someone decides to get up. Well, they're the ones who ended up getting the reward hamdulillah right. So
the reward of them Xin the prophets of salami said in the Hadith in October, Ronnie authenticated as well. He said that,
then you will offer Hula, hula muda Muda, salty, that
the morphine is forgiven for all of the sins that would be, if they were to be placed.
They will be placed as long as his as far as his voice can reach. So the distance to which his voice can reach all of that area, if you were to imagine to be sins,
then what then would be forgiven for that? And the Prophet continued and he said, What a Jew who will me through IG Reman, Salama? Who? And the Agile of the reward of them well as in is the reward of everyone who prays So imagine this Masjid few 100 People pray at
Juma time someone gets up and gives the other than everybody. All of their reward is given to them as in why because he's the one who called everyone to Salah. This is one Hadith The Prophet said and another Hadith also authenticated, as well. The prophets have said to me said that men are thinner, thinner, they are shorter Senate and wider but luckily Jana, whoever makes the Zan for 12 years, Allah Subhana Allah Allah will grant him Jana Jana becomes necessary for him Jana becomes basically something that he's going to be guaranteed what coup de Bella who will be Vini he could Leominster tuna Hassan and for every single day he will be given 60 rewards. And for every karma, every event
that is for every karma, he will be given 30 rewards. This is the more than and this hadith is also authentic. I'm usually very careful to pick authentic hadith and if they're not I mentioned it by another Hadith is the hadith of Abu Dawood and others as well. I will say then Quadri, he said that
this is still about again, he said that
I mean, there is another the next Hadith will have something about Athan as well. So I think it's enough related to Iran. But there is another point to mention in this hadith. Notice Abu Saeed Al Hadi is saying in the Urraca to hibel Hunnam our body, I noticed that you love your sheep and you love the wilderness, you love to go outdoor, you love to leave the city, right?
So this is something that is actually a positive thing to go away from society, especially when a person is afraid for their religion.
There is a Hadith of the prophets of Salam. In which he said that there will be a time there will be a time in which the best wealth of a person will be livestock that he owns. That he takes up the mountain passes
while the worker alkatone You have filled Ruby Dini him in Alphington and he's basically staying in areas nomadic life. In other words, he's staying in areas where rain comes down. So he's living a nomadic lifestyle out of the city away from people why the prophets of salaam said he filled Ruby Dini humanoid fitted, he's running away from the fitting from the trials that the society is giving. Right? So sometimes, sometimes I'm not saying this is that time. But I'm saying sometimes things become so difficult in the world, that the best thing for you to do is just to save yourself.
And the Prophet spoke of this time that there will be a time that the best wealth a person can have his livestock, farm land outside of the city away from people and he just sits there and worships Allah looks after his livestock, sheep family teaches his own kids and his wife and children and everybody. They're doing their personal thing. All of the society can be going in and every other direction. Doesn't matter. They're focused on their deen and they're focused on Allah azza wa jal. You have Phil Ruby Dini, he mentally fit and he running away. He's running away from people because of the Fitton and the trials. And Abu Dawood. He said that this hadith shows us Babu Myra hustle, V
min albida What if ill fated he said that this hadith is basically showing us that
Sometimes it's permissible for you to just go away from society because of the fitrah.
Because sometimes it's really fitting or overwhelming.
And this has happened to people in history, many different occasions. If you think about the Spanish Inquisition and the type of fit and that people had to go through the end, the Lucien Muslims, they were very severe fit. And so if someone found an opportunity to just go into the mountains, it is reported that some of them did decide to do this. They went into the mountains, and they just living by themselves away from everybody else. Neither are the people down in the cities bothered by them, nor are they bothered by the people in the city. Okay, they can do that. Because this is allowed. Yes, it is preferable in normal circumstances, to meet people to socialize with people, the
prophets, Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Man Hall upon us was sobre, LA, Jolla, Romina, let Elam you highlighted nasolabial surah. Allah, other home, whoever meets people in his patient with all the harm that they do to him is better than the person who doesn't meet people and is not patient. So it is good in normal circumstances to be that person that's giving and taking, meeting and helping society. But let's say the situation gets beyond your hands. There's nothing you can do. Take your children, take your family, go somewhere remote. Just focus on your own lives. See when when this whole COVID thing happened. It's not literally a fitna per se. What I mean is, it's not
what's intended by this hadith, but I'm just trying to bring the idea closer to you. Some people, they literally packed themselves up, and they went to remote cities in Canada. They said, Okay, the numbers are going up in Toronto, they're going up in Vancouver, they're going up in Edmonton, they're going up wherever I'm heading to, and they will go to some random remote city where there's like not even one case throughout the pandemic movie. Right? Many people did this. Why? Because they're running away from their lives. So similarly for your spiritual lives. If you have to run there is no choice there is no option no problem. It's there's no harm in living a lifestyle where
you're away from, you know, the big cities. There's no problem with that there are sometimes even health benefits to that as well right? By Heidi's number 37 The profitable hoorah Radi Allahu Allahu Anhu the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Lo Yeah, Allah Manasa Murfin NIDA he was sffilm Awali thumb Mala Mia Judo Illa estamos la lista him. The prophets I said, Let me said if people were to know what
reward lies in pronouncing the Athan and other Hadith related to the event, if people were to know what reward lies in calling or pronouncing the Athan and the first row as well.
And they could not find any way to be that person who does the event or be that person who goes in the first row, except by drawing lots they will do so.
So if they find no other way, except for Coura, looked around, they will try their best to draw the lats and get to be that winner. They will do it.
So there is serious reward in praying in the first row. And most
out of the different places in the row, the right side, there's a hadith of the prophets of Salaam in which he said that the angels, they
they send their Salaat upon the right side of the rows. So the best even within the best is right behind the Imam. But if you don't have that option, and you see that there's two sides, you don't know where to go go for the right. But this is very tricky. By the way. If you don't know
the best option number one right behind the email, first of all, let's say the row is growing evenly in both directions. Then what do you do?
Look for the right got it. If the right is beginning to become
the dominant side because everybody wants to be the on the right side.
Then there is another Hadith of the prophets of Salaam in nama journal Imam Lee was suck Imam has been made so he is centered. So if you see people going too much on that side, then the reward goes on the left side so you can center the Imam as well. This is important because sometimes one time I was in a masjid someone told the Hadith of the right side. So everybody started to pray on the right side and then you'd have like the empty left.
But there's another Hadith the Prophet SAW Selim said the Imam has been made so you center him
If you see people going too much to the right side, then you've got to center. Go back to the other side and make sure the rows are balanced by.
So then the profits I said, Let me continued.
So there are two rewards a profit as mentioned, number one, he's talking about them, then. And then again, has a great reward one of the Hadith, the prophets instead of them said Elmo, the Nona outward are nasty and Anioma. They're more than the people who give the event the people who call the event the people who pronounced the Adan they will have the longest necks on the Day of Judgment. Now, what does this mean? They'll come as giraffes or something? No, that's not what it means it means they will be.
It's basically a way of saying that they will be proud.
They will be proud.
Do you understand?
Like, hold your head up high. What does that mean? Literally hold your head up. I
know, this is a way of saying that these people will be very proud of what they did. Maybe there's going to be a physic physical element of the length of the neck as well. But it doesn't mean like a deformity. Okay? It's basically saying that they will be
very, very proud of their actions on the day of judgment. And in terms of the so forth, the prophets have said, Let me set the best rows for men are the earlier rows, okay? How you also fulfill the Jallianwala, the foremost or the best for men, and for the, and the worst ones, or the or the final ones. And for the woman, it's the opposite the prophets instead of them said the the worst rose for the woman are the foremost ones, meaning the earlier ones. And then the better ones are later why?
And I want to stop at that for a second. The reason for that is because, of course, if the woman is in the early, so forth, in the first so forth, rows, then she will be witnessed by all of the men who are walking into the masjid because at the time of the Prophet, there was no partitions in the masjid.
You understand? This is the reason why the prophets and send them is saying that the best so far for the men are the ones closer to the prophets. And Salam, the first ones, and the worst ones for the woman are the first ones because the ones who will be witnessed by the men as they're walking out, are the ones that will be in the first row. So since the woman has been commanded to protect herself as much as possible, cover herself as much as possible. The best row for her is then the back one. But what if you have a masjid that does have a partition? Now? Is it still necessary for a woman to pray? Is it still best for her to pray in the back? Well, that reasoning is no longer there anymore.
There was a particular reason why the prophets Salam had given this particular rule and we know that the principle is that a hook memoria doodle man, I let you he would you then were adamant that the ruling, it's always in circles along with its reason.
When the reason is there, the rule is there when the reason is not there, the rule is also not there. So if it's completely segregated, there is no harm in the early rows sometimes maybe there's going to be more protection in the early rows depending on how the masjid is situated. You understand what I mean? Jamie?
Then the Prophet continued and he gave another
fella Another virtue as well. So these are just generic virtues the prophet is talking about in terms of per another one the prophets have said to me, he said is well we are Allah Munna Murphy the God let's debacle, if they knew the type of reward they will get for coming early to prayer, which prayer some scholars they said that God literally means coming early for the whole time. Others they said any prayer anyways?
coming early generally,
if they knew what type of reward is incoming early,
they would race to come early. Well Oh yeah, Allah Munna. Marfil automaty will soon be a woman 101. And if they knew the type of reward that's there in Atlanta, what's awesome
this is important. I'm sure you should know this. The reason why I say you should know this is because this is one of the five daily prayers. There's some of their prayers they have more than one name by the way, okay. Like for example, salatu. God is also known as Salaat. A sub
and, sorry salata. Fajr is also known as salatu salam, and salata. Risha is also known as
NOAA, NASA, the latest pm only. It's known as an atom. That's another name for salaat and Asia.
Okay, but the Prophet discouraged using this name there is a Hadith in which the prophets have said let me said that don't let the Bedouins overcome you with the name of your prayer Aisha and they call it a Latimer.
Okay, this hadith is in Muslim dilemma Muhammad. The Prophet SAW Selim discouraged over here from calling salatu Orisha anathema, but in Buhari is calling it uttama as well. Why? Because the Prophet was always very cognizant of who is speaking to, it's possible that he was speaking to a lot of Bedouins. So they're in front of him is using words that are more familiar to them. Do you understand the people in outside of the city they're not the city dwellers, the Bedouins they would call their this prayer, they would call it atma salatu, WA salatu, Aisha. So the Prophet said, don't let them call it. Don't let them overcome you, basically, with their dialect, into forcing you into
saying automa, but rather you St. Lucia. Now in this case, the prophet is using the word atom. And this shows you two things. Number one, it shows you when the Prophet is saying, don't use the word atma. He doesn't mean it's haram to use the word is discouraging it? Do you get it? This is very important. Why? Because sometimes people they take everything literally. And we say that you have to look at the words of the Prophet and see how he dealt with the situation as well. Here he is saying don't do this. And then he does it himself. That's the first thing that it's not necessary for us not to call it ADAMA, but rather, it is better for us to use the word
The second thing is that maybe the reason why he did this is because he was addressing people that this is what they understood. The Prophet always had this idea of using words that are comprehensible to the person before him. For example, there was a tribe that used to change the Elif lamb into Alif, Nene.
Right. Like for example, if you say alpha j.
They had another way of saying every URL they would say M
M Fajr. For example, Al Kitab, they would say M Kitab Al Quran, M Quran so they will change the lamb to mean specifically with the Elif lamb that goes before each words each of the nouns that is so the Prophet one time, he was speaking to a Sahaba, who was from that tribe to make more sense to him, the prophets I send them said laser meaning be REM CR Moon films.
There is another report of that same Hadith which says laser maynardville of cmo freesurfer, it's not considered a good deed that you fast in that you basically forced yourself to fast while you're traveling. Some people would do this, they would basically, you know,
overwhelm themselves by fasting while they're traveling while it's hot while they're unable to etc. So the Prophet said, This is not considered bitter. This is not a good deed, you're basically disobeying the prophets. In one of the cases the Prophet even told them to break their foster disobeying in that case, right. But this time the Prophet was addressing a companion who had that dialect of instead of oil so he literally spoke like that he said in his recorded in the Hadith as well he said lace I mean embittered him. So Yama himself so he's cognizant of who is speaking to so there's a great potential that the prophet is speaking to people who know Orisha as a Latimer over
Whether we are hola Munna mafia Timothy was Sophie Leto, Houma, la hubba hubba. If they knew the type of reward that Risha and Fajr have, they would come to both of these prayers, even if they had to crawl to come. Okay, so this is the reward of these two pillars. Now if you really think about it, basically the prophet is adding a specific reward for every type of prayer.
Pretty much because there is a specific reward that prophets SLM had, that Allah talked about in the Quran, when it comes to a salatu salam, which is salata rasa. So that's awesome. There is another very specific reward in this hadith for a long time as well, because the Gita according to a number of scholars, including a hobby is that you pray the whole on the early time. Then there's a reward the prophet is mentioning for Orisha, another one he's mentioning for Fudger. So What's he trying to do? He's trying to encourage every prayer in different ways. Some Allahu alayhi wa salam. Do you understand what I'm saying? It's not like, yes, all of them have something unique about them. But
the prophet is going at people in different ways to try to encourage
them to accomplish all of these obligations. If you know what type of reward you're going to get in Russia and Fajr, you're going to try to come there even if you had to crawl. If people knew what type of reward is in praying vote on time that they would come there, even if they had to raise to it. Half a little Allah Salatu was Salam ala stop, protect your prayers generally, but make sure you're working on the answer. So every prayer is being encouraged by the prophet and by Allah azza wa jal in different ways. sha Allah will.
Now we'll do one more Hadith this time.
Hadith number 38.
And Abdullah have
an IV as an Abu Qatada as Hadith. We were with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, were with the prophets or Salam.
were praying with the prophets of Salam. When suddenly the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard
the noise of a group of people basically hurrying.
And so when the Prophet SAW Selim finished praying,
he said, Marcia, what's going on with you people? Why are you making so much noise? These are quite literally the words of the Prophet, Masha and Rocco. What's going on with you people?
What's the matter with you people, right?
God who is their agenda in a solid, they said, The Sahaba some of them of course, they said that we were racing to get to prayer.
Allah filata fellow, he said, Don't be hasty when you're trying to come to prayer. So it's good to come on time, but not to run to the prayer. The Prophet Salam said, either a day to masala tuffa, la Kombis Sakina. When you come to prayer, then come
with tranquility come to the prayer and you are completely tranquil. You are feeling you know, like,
comfortable to be able to pray. This is the idea of tranquility and serenity in prayer. The idea here is that you come to prayer in a way where you are only going to be occupied in the prayer, your mind is not busy with something else. Your mind is not busy with using the bathroom, it's not busy with food that you have sitting on the table. It's not with the busy, it's not busy, you disconnect from everything. And you connect to Allah who has a theory about this is the reason why the prophets are Silliman say, when you come come with tranquility, come with serenity, firmer doctrine, facade, you do whatever you're able to get him there, you pray that
all my thoughts are comfortable, and what you missed, make it up. Because if you really wanted that reward, you should have come earlier. But now that you're already laid, the right thing to do is not to be running, but to be coming slowly. And that same thing, tranquility, let's put it that way. The same thing goes with driving as well. You know, sometimes people are trying to make it for prayer. And they're like cutting the light and 80 miles per hour or something like that. That's not the idea when you come come with Sakina if you're late Al Hamdulillah, you're late now you should have come earlier before, but not in a way where you're going to kill someone along the way. Come with
tranquility, whatever you're able to get, as the Prophet said, get it what you can't then go ahead and make that.
So this hadith should give us a general principle that everything that is going to get you occupied in your prayer when you come for Salah cancel that this is the reason why I always say turn off your phones, right? Or put them on silent or do something now of course, everybody forgets on the odd occasion. But the idea is that this is what we should be doing. We should be aiming to be in a situation where nothing else will keep us occupied. Not the food, not the drinks nothing else. There's a very interesting hadith of each of the Allah Allah Hannah, in Sahih Muslim
and this hadith is telling of even the social culture
I say this because sometimes we ended up
early Islamic Arabia had its own social culture as well. Do you understand what I'm trying to say? There was
an auntie there was there's a cousin there's a all of those things they compound into a social culture over there as well. So this is going to give you another insight into a shot of the Allahu Talana Aisha is now
behaving or dealing like an auntie? She's literally an auntie in this case. Okay, so I Aisha speaks to her nephew
her nephew was a very famous scholar. His name is Al Qasim ibn Muhammad ibn Abu Bakr. But Al Qasim had an accent.
Of course him had an accent Why did he have an accent? Well, Mohammed, Abu Bakr ended up getting married to a woman who was not from Arabia. Okay. She was a concubine and then she became a what they call an omelette. A mother of a child, so she's kind of like a wife. Okay, he had a child with this woman. And from that wedlock or from that relationship came across him even Mohamed Knickerbocker, who is one of the great scholars of his time. And he's also the nephew of Aisha Radi Allahu Allah Anna. They, she is talking to her nephew. Now, Kasim and one of the other people they ended up having a conversation.
I Isha is observing. Conversation finishes, our Isha says to Al Qasim, she says that Why does your friend speak so well and you don't know how to speak?
Because this is an anti. Right? She's basically giving him a piece of her mind. Man up, straighten up, you should know how to speak. Use the right language use the right words. She's getting mad at him. So she she literally says to him Malika let the head death roll at the head. So
why don't you speak like this person?
Why is it that you do not speak like the son of my brother over here, metaphorical brother.
And then she continues herself. She's a little bit angry. She says that. I know exactly what happened.
In his case,
his mother was the one who was teaching him. She knew how to speak properly Arabic. In your case, your mother was the one who's teaching you
what you're trying to say she didn't know how to speak Arabic. So you came out making mistakes.
Now of course, she's basically at the same time she's giving him a dance right? But at the same time she's trying to tell him you need to learn how to speak properly. You need to fix yourself up over here. Now as a young man, he got a bit angry. He got a bit angry. Literally the Hadith says Sahih Muslim he says that Al Qasim he got up and he got a little bit angry at his auntie. So
at that very moment food came in and it was placed before Aisha Radi Allahu Allah Anna. And Aisha says to this guy, he's leaving now. She says where he says where she says, Where are you going?
He says I'm going to pray.
She said sit down.
Call it ageless. Allah in your in your Salah. I'm going to pray. He's being
rebellious, a rebellious young man. harlot ageless order.
This is one of those cases where our Isha used the word witch we can even call maybe a swear word if you want to use that. Why? Because she's disciplining him. We don't know the whole backstory there could be the possibility that he was being rebellious in other ways. This is a young man at this moment. Later on, remember passing goes on to become
he goes on to becoming one of the top scholars of Medina. But at this time, he's still a young child and Auntie Aisha is giving him a piece of her mind to teach him to discipline him to give him the right therapy and so forth. So she says ageless would sit down you How do I translate this?
You think of a word All right.
In the semi to rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam call, la salata, we have the letter puram Walla Walla Walla, who are you the federal Bethann there is no prayer that you should be praying. When food comes before you. It's time for prayer, Masjid, this praying on Dr. Aisha saying don't go for prayer. Do you understand? This is a monumental Maha meaning
you mother from the Mothers of the Believers. And she is this the auntie of this man who goes on to becoming one of the top scholars of Medina. Wala Who are you deaf here one button, and neither should someone be praying when they have to when they're fighting against one of the two filthy things meaning either urine or stool they have to use the bathroom in other words, right. So in those cases, there is no prayer that you should be praying you should just wait
And let's say someone decides to pray. It depends. Number one, if it's just a normal level of needing to use the bathroom and answering the call of nature, your prayer is considered mcru. It's considered mcru. For you to do the prayer at that time, it's disliked. It's not encouraged. You're trying to make this offer whatever weight, go to the bathroom, come afterwards. But if it is to a point where literally, you know, you're gonna lose, like sometimes people come to the masjid and they're literally just jumping up and down, right? You can kind of tell there's a lot of unease going on, there's no way the person will be focused in the prayer at this point. So in this case, if
it's to that point where you cannot focus in what you're doing, then all of the scholars agree that if it gets to a point where he cannot even think about what he's doing in his prayer, then the prayer is not accepted.
That is it. It is not permissible for him to go into that prayer. And and that prayer is not sufficient. This is an Iijima consensus. But again, this isn't the case where he has no idea what's going on his prayer because he really got he's just wanting to go through the motions and get to the bathroom.
And I stopped here at the thought of my boss or the Allah who said that there is nothing that you will get a reward from your prayer except whatever you're able to comprehend. So if you come running into the masjid, then you're like
that's not the way to go about it. Walk. You missed it. hamdulillah pray the second Jamar. Pray by yourself. Miss raka I'll make it up. No problem. sha Allah, just a common law. Harun will stop here with some of the Allahu Allah say you didn't Hamedan was early. He was so happy
