And now

00:00:02 --> 00:00:14

to straight in the lines in the prep, and how to stand up. And the prayers and part of that is also coming. Of course we mentioned we said, part of that is coming to the masjid early. And this is something that is

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

the virtues, the virtues of it are very, very great. There are so many a hadith that mentioned the virtues of coming to the masjid early coming to pray in the first lines and the first rows, in fact,

00:00:30 --> 00:00:34

but there are also some things that you know, some people when they come to the masjid, they want to come.

00:00:35 --> 00:00:56

There are some mistakes that some people make also in that in that they're always they're in a hurry. So when you go into the masjid, then if you're late, the Prophet, some mother, I know, he tells me he said, he lets me out to my karma. When you hear the karma being made, because some people as soon as they know that the karma being made means what? Meaning the prayer has started before us sometimes.

00:00:57 --> 00:01:06

You know, in the old days, you don't know when the prayer is going to start. If you can't hear the karma, you don't know if the prayer started already. But for us, how do you know the prayer started?

00:01:07 --> 00:01:51

The time if you know the time has already started. Even if you can't hear you know that you're running late. You know that you're running late. Because before you come in, if you don't hear the karma, you know that it might have already finished or maybe it started before it hasn't started yet. You don't really know why because the only time you hear the comment is when you come close to the masjid. But for us, if you're late to the masjid, if you know that you're late, one thing you should not be doing is you should not hurry. Don't try to hurry to catch the prayer. If by being in hurry, of course, meaning you know your will might put you in danger also, especially when you're

00:01:51 --> 00:02:25

driving sometimes you're in a hurry to catch the prayer. And you anytime you're in a hurry, you don't pay attention as much. So one thing what part of our Dr. Dean is the complete Dean, the prophets of Allah anything my son said either semi automatic karma, you know, it's very virtuous, of course, to catch the first accurately and to catch the first and to be in the first line and so forth. But if the karma is being made, Feng Shui out famzoo Who are they come a Sakina. While we're calling

00:02:27 --> 00:02:40

the province of Allah, Allah, he was telling me said, when you hear the karma being made, he said, some shoe the first order you do is walk, what's the opposite of walk,

00:02:41 --> 00:03:35

run, don't run, don't run, don't speed up, because some people as soon as they hear, especially when you see the Imam was already inside the RUCO. Right, everyone just tries to hurry. So he does anatomy karma. When the prayer is already started, you hear the karma, the first thing you do is you walk while they come a second. And you know, be tranquil and be calm. Well, we'll call a Sakina will walk, meaning Sakina there'll be no in haste, and you will as wakad as your demeanor. Don't act like you're in a hurry. Just be calm and be calm, be be cool and calm. And don't be in a hurry. And whether to zero and don't. And the prophets have emphasized it. Don't, don't speed up, don't go

00:03:35 --> 00:04:02

faster. Don't go faster. That means walk. So even though if you're walking, sometimes you're walking slow, right? So when you hear the comma, you walk faster, so don't even walk faster, just walk normal. Just take it easy. Whenever you catch up the prayer, then prayer, if you can't catch it, then what you want to do is you want to complete your prayer, notice for Timbal

00:04:03 --> 00:04:46

Dr. Fasano McPhatter. Comfortable wherever you miss it, then complete the prayer. And so what is completing the prayer mean? It means that the first rock that you do, let's say you miss the first rock, so you're not making up the first rock. So you're saying you miss the first rock. The rock that you're making will be your second rock. So let's say you caught you caught the last two rock. And so you count the last two raka so the last two of the Imam is what the last two of the Imam is your first two which means when you stand up for your third and fourth Do you read an extra Surah You don't read an extra Surah because you're not making up

00:04:47 --> 00:04:59

you're completing your rock. So your third rock your third rock out when the moms already finish when you stand up for the third is your is your your that's your third they might you mean

00:05:00 --> 00:05:18

The you're the one that you stand up after you finish your prayers, your third raka not your first, you're not making up the first. So you don't read another Surah because the prophets and limbs have it more completed and complete the prayer. And Allah subhana knows best and of course, we know that going to the masjid

00:05:19 --> 00:06:03

is something that's extremely rewarding as the prophets of Allah Allah who has some sediment whether Ill masjid or Raha whoever goes to the masjid in the morning for in the afternoon I Billa hula How can you get getting that in New Zealand? Everything Allah Subhana Allah will prepare for you and abode in paradise you get a you get house in paradise and abode in paradise. Coulomb Aveda or AHA every single time he goes in the morning, or anytime he goes in the afternoon. And so what that means to leave in the morning for him is to go in the afternoon. Go in the afternoon. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned like every single time you go to the masjid

00:06:04 --> 00:06:14

The Coulee coatsworth nila seletti sadaqa. Every single step that you take to the prayer, you will get the reward of a Salah reward of

00:06:15 --> 00:06:22

charity and the Messenger of Allah Larus have also mentioned the greatness of going to the masjid

00:06:23 --> 00:07:10

in that every time you go there your status is raised and your your sins are also dropping the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said I do look for my lamb I am who yep Allah. Tala would you like me to show you something that wipes away sins? Will you fall we are probably hit the road yet and Allah Subhana Allah will raise you and status and the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said number one, the companion said yes of course. And he said number one is Babel will do Allen Acharya as well and will do Ellen MacArthur. This is very very actually it's much easier for us as well who don't miss perfecting your will do other than Acharya another mechanic are the times

00:07:10 --> 00:07:16

that that's difficult. In the old days, what would make what would make somebody

00:07:18 --> 00:07:22

do something like what what wouldn't make difficult what will make will do difficult.

00:07:24 --> 00:07:32

Cold right, it's very cold, it's very cold, you don't want to touch water. For us, we don't have to worry about that. Why?

00:07:33 --> 00:07:52

If it's really cold, we turn the hot water. So it should be actually easier for us to perfect our will do IsValid although means to perfect your will do that means part of your prayer perfecting part of the perfection of the prayer starts with the perfection or you will do

00:07:53 --> 00:08:26

if you want Allah subhanho wa Taala to raise you and status and let your sins dropped. So this most of us we think about okay, a prayer is of course very, very important. But we don't think about the window itself as being part of the actual prayer. So you will you start your prayer when you when prayer time comes in when you start making you will do that's the beginning of perfecting of the prayer. It doesn't begin with the flotilla haram. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to horo shutaura Eema

00:08:27 --> 00:09:10

purification is half of Iman and what is the what's another name for prayer? Iman, the word Iman is another prayer another name for prayer Allah uses it in the Quran. In surah Al Baqarah Allah subhanho wa Taala says to America and Allah He Americana lovely Yulia Eman. Allah would not make your Eman go to waste. This verse will reveal when the Companions asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they said, O Messenger of Allah, how about those who used to pray towards vital magnets they never got the opportunity to pray towards Mecca. What happens to their prayer? And Allah revealed America and Allah who the only IEMA Allah will not make your iman go to waste. What

00:09:10 --> 00:09:11

are they asking about?

00:09:12 --> 00:09:42

Prayer. So Allah responds by saying your email will not go to waste, which means your prayer will be accepted will not go to a so when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said a pahoehoe shuttle Iman purification is half of Eman, half of what? Half a prayer. And that's why it's about what we'll do. Perfect thing that we'll do is part of the prayer. Your prayer starts and so that's what you have to when you start when you start preparation for prayer.

00:09:44 --> 00:09:59

Who is very important? Of course for sure. perfecting your whole show, trying to be focused in your prayer, perfecting the actions of we'll do our prayer but before that, you have to perfect what you will do

00:10:00 --> 00:10:01

So how do you perfect your will do?

00:10:02 --> 00:10:14

Making sure that you make your will do properly. Not be. Remember we said when the man when the prayer starts How should you do what whenever the harm is being made? Do you run to the masjid?

00:10:15 --> 00:10:17

You don't run work what state are you in?

00:10:19 --> 00:10:21

And state have a Sakina while we're

00:10:23 --> 00:11:08

in state of tranquility, and state of peace in the state of Utah, just calm down don't be in a hurry. So when you make it will go what should you be doing? You should slow down and perfect you will do every single action, you will not lose. You will not regret perfecting you will. So you have to start and if you start with that inshallah it will continue throughout your prayer. Also the Prophet Salam said this. What this is one of the things that raises your status, you weren't allowed to raise your status. You weren't allowed to forgive your sins. You weren't since we dropped from your from you. Then it's about what to do and then Metalia making wudu perfecting it even if it's

00:11:08 --> 00:11:11

difficult. What's another thing that makes it difficult?

00:11:15 --> 00:11:17

Call them what else?

00:11:18 --> 00:11:19


00:11:21 --> 00:11:41

Yeah, sometimes you know, in some some countries it's really hot. You it's very difficult to make a loop because it's so hot. I remember at Medina Do you know in Medina, we used to, you know, they have the water tanks on the roof. And it's so hot that when you turn it on, you can't take shower and you can't even make barely make.

00:11:43 --> 00:12:00

Because it's so hot. So what did we used to do? We used to have a bucket. And we would keep the water in a bucket for horses for horses and wudu. Because if you turn on the faucet, and you turn on the shower is so hot that you can't take shower. So you Yes.

00:12:02 --> 00:12:13

What is it? Yes, you live device, you know, those who lived in Arabia, they know exactly what I mean. We used to do that we used to put in the bucket because it was so hot. So sometimes it's too hot. What's another thing?

00:12:16 --> 00:12:44

Yes, very good. Sometimes there are areas, like your job, you have areas that you you know that that that made me paint, or you're doing something and you're not like, you know, it's hard to tell, maybe it's very, you know, like you don't, you know, I'm gonna go back to work anyways. So you don't care. You don't take care of it. And you're not careful. What's another thing also, that some people don't like, or neglectful? Who knows?

00:12:46 --> 00:12:48

What's the hardest part to wash

00:12:50 --> 00:12:51

when you make little

00:12:52 --> 00:12:52


00:12:54 --> 00:13:01

Yeah, it's very difficult to wash your feet because number one, it's far away. And the older you get, the more difficult

00:13:02 --> 00:13:05

right when you have, especially when you have to put your feet

00:13:06 --> 00:13:37

on the sink. Right? It's difficult. And so if you want to make it easy for you in the morning, just put on socks and then you can wipe the rest of the day and Charlotte makes it a lot easier. But when you're washing your feet, it's difficult to wash your feet. So most people don't wash in certain areas they don't wash properly the feet or the areas between the toes. Right. So sometimes air between toes are not washed, because your neck neglectful and being neglectful in Moodle is a major set.

00:13:38 --> 00:14:14

Being neglectful not washing properly is a major set. Why is it a major sin and what's the proof of that? Because the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw the Companions they were coming from taboo and they're tired. So he saw some areas and their feet that were not washed. And so the prophets of Allah Allah he was suddenly said, Wait a minute, whoa to the heels in the hellfire. Whoa to the heels in hellfire. This is proof and evidence that a person can be punished partially. That means there are certain parts that will be punished.

00:14:16 --> 00:14:54

When you are not taking care of those parts, that means maybe the other of your whole body might not be punished, but your feet are going to be punished. Why did Allah kabhi Mina walk to the heels in the hellfire, these heels are going to be the hellfire. These heels are going to be the hellfire. And that's a major sin because there is a warning of punishment in this life or the hereafter is one of the what the definition of a major sin is. If there is a warning or punishment in this life or the hereafter, it's considered a major sin. So not taking care of the will do not washing it properly because the most difficult part to wash is your feet. And one of the most difficult areas

00:14:54 --> 00:14:59

to wash is the back of your feet, your heels because you don't see it. And sometimes you're just

00:15:00 --> 00:15:48

neglect for you only washes area and you don't make sure you don't wipe the whole area of your feet and you don't wipe the, your, the areas between the toes also, and so is bevel we'll do a little Macquarie anytime it's difficult whether it's hot or cold or you know, in areas that are difficult you tried your very best to to wash those areas properly. In sha Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will raise your status and will forgive your sins also. But customers will falter Ill massage and walking and taking many steps to the masjid taking many steps to the masjid. And when de la sala de vida Salette. And waiting from prayer to prayer from what like for example, you wait for mother and then

00:15:48 --> 00:16:17

your Will you stay in the masjid until Isha and the that the Prophet sallallahu Alikum Reebok finale Kumar Revathi says that's really that's that's a Reebok music you know when a person is waiting, and one of the greatest rewards that a person can have is like protecting them, you know, staying up at nighttime, or protecting and you know, protecting the frontier, the Muslims, you're in battle and so forth. And so

00:16:18 --> 00:16:31

finale commodity map, this is the prophets have indicated the greatness of the reward, reward of it and in the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned in another Hadith,

00:16:32 --> 00:17:15

that that the Malayaka also then give some of them they ask forgiveness for those people. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said In another Hadith or we heard the Allahu Anhu he said and Hadith inside Buhari if he had to commit that Allah, if one of you makes will do for us and for us, Anna faster, you know he makes will do and he said he perfects his will. And he's tries his very best to make sure that everything's washed properly. And then properly, fat and masjid and he goes to the masjid that you read the Illa Salah he doesn't go to the masjid except because we because of the prayer because there's some people go to the masjid for different reasons. Sometimes I want to

00:17:15 --> 00:17:34

go to the masjid because you know, there's a brother that owes me some money. I know I'm gonna see you in the masjid. So maybe for that reason. And so you go to the masjid for no other reason except for the prayer. Let me have to hope. He does not take a single step. A lot of alhaja are rough Allahu naratriptan

00:17:35 --> 00:18:19

except Allah somehow raised him and status will help and who hopefully Yeah, and Allah subhanho wa Taala will wipe away his sin. way the devil and masjid and when he enters the masjid cannot be selected. He will, can be considered to have been in prayer. That means your prayer already started your prayer. The reward for you in prayer has already started. We can see Salatin McKennitt that'd be so if the only reason why you're staying in the masjid is because you're waiting for the prayer. So the earlier you go to the masjid, the greater the reward is and also do you know where else you get? Well to Solly Allah he'll melodica and the angels will continue to say salata pardon, which

00:18:19 --> 00:18:35

means that angels will continue to ask forgiveness for that person, Madame de Medici, Leu, Salafi, as long as he's still in that city. That means before and after, while you're waiting for the prayer and why you are, you're while you're

00:18:36 --> 00:18:50

while you're waiting for the next prayer or you stay in your prayers that you pray and you know what the angels say Say, Allah, Muhammad Allah. So Allah hum of Oh ALLAH forgive him. Allah madhhab O Allah have mercy upon him. And why Malamute?

00:18:52 --> 00:19:34

V as long as he doesn't harm anybody doesn't do any cause any problems. And he doesn't because we'll write what the full alarm a fella alarm or handle and they can they continue to say Oh ALLAH forgive him. Allah have mercy upon him. And these are from who from the angels, the angels and of course they do are the angels the most pure and there are a creation of Allah subhanaw taala that do not disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in another narration Lyocell hydrography Salatin, you will continue to be in prayer meaning you will deem to have been in prayer. The reward of prayer will be upon you. Mme, it's a solid heavy su la yamna. Who

00:19:35 --> 00:19:59

will call him Isla de la ilaha, Salah and the prophets of Allah himself you know that the only thing that is preventing him from staying there is because of the prayer in sha Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will continue to give you the reward. And of course coming early and being in the first line is one of the rewards that people don't realize how great

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

It is but if they knew how great it is, the prophets of Allah Allah He was someone who said another Hadith which we covered in the in the chapter itself. Now yeah luminous Matthew NIDA was off Allah well if people knew the reward of the NIDA, the call to prayer and the first line from Mala Mia Gu IL Yes Taheebo Allah He and then they find no other option no other

00:20:27 --> 00:21:02

no other way except to pink lots another topic like who gets to pray first and who gets to make the other well yeah Allah then they would have done so in love Allah Ya Allah muda Massey Tangier and they knew a year Mr. Come early, if they knew the reward of coming early, let's step up for you they would have raised each other to see who would come to the masjid earlier. The reward of coming from the masjid is very, very correct. And of course when you come to the masjid, some people don't come to the masjid early. But when it's time to pray, where they pray.

00:21:05 --> 00:21:05


00:21:07 --> 00:21:16

know that they pray in the back. Even if they come early, no, you can barely make sure you sit in the front seat. Right?

00:21:18 --> 00:21:27

To sit in the front meaning you front row in the front row. So if you're coming early, so in the front row, this is you know, there's no reservation here. I told I told you the story of

00:21:28 --> 00:21:38

one of the you know the Pilgrims the project that I used to bring from Cambodia Vietnam, this was a while back a couple of years back and

00:21:40 --> 00:21:47

I had a group of over 200 And you know you have group over 200 Most of the plane is your people.

00:21:48 --> 00:22:04

So I don't want I want to make sure that everyone gets on the plane. So I go last and waiting making sure everyone goes in. And when I go in there's chaos. Why? Because the people who entered first you know in their country when you get to the bus home you get on the bus first where do you sit?

00:22:05 --> 00:22:46

You sit in the front right? So all of my people they went into the plane mashallah, where did they sit? First Class business class filled up Mashallah. They didn't look at what seat the egg came first. And so they filled all the they came and sat and there's chaos. Because first of all, everybody sitting and you know, the, you know, the people who are there, they usually try to show you but they don't know English. This is a lot of these people. This is the first time on the plane. Right? It's the first time so they get all all the front seat and to finally I came, and the story. The story is the people on the plane, they're like, tell, please tell your people really sit in

00:22:46 --> 00:22:59

their seats. And they and then so I'm telling us no, this is not our seat. And they keep arguing with me. i We got here first. Like why these people are trying to tell us to go in the back. Those are the smallest seats.

00:23:01 --> 00:23:03

We got, like we got

00:23:04 --> 00:23:10

these guys to try to take our seats. That's not fair. We * with them as we get the seats.

00:23:11 --> 00:23:27

And you know, even the back everybody did nobody sat in the right seat. Everybody just sat wherever they were until finally they just gave up. They just made sure that all of our people sat in the economy. And so during that whole flight, nobody sat on their property except for a few people.

00:23:28 --> 00:23:39

But you know, you go in for it. But in the masjid hamdulillah if you come first in sha Allah, come first. Come to the front. No Reservations, yes.

00:23:42 --> 00:23:42


00:23:45 --> 00:24:22

Yeah, if they their space, you can go and Charlotte their space. But if there's no space, then you cause more problems for people. Yeah, sometimes they're so space. But if there is space and chocolates, okay, make room for your brothers and sisters. Because it's the reward is great. That's what we should be competing for. But try to come early. And that's why does that happen? Why does it happen? That happens because the people who came early don't know the reward of the first first row. And that's why they leave some space. If you came late. If you come late, you shouldn't find the first row. She'll find space in the first row. already. Yes, if the futures of

00:24:23 --> 00:24:24


00:24:26 --> 00:24:30

because you have to come early if you came late.

00:24:32 --> 00:24:33

Push yourself.

00:24:36 --> 00:24:53

No, the thing is, as long as you don't harm people, if you come early, you get the reward of coming early. And then the reward the first line or two these two types of reward, first line but the thing is, if you come early and there's space in the first role, make sure the people in the background have space.

00:24:54 --> 00:24:59

If if there's still space, that means we don't know the reward. The people who came early

00:25:00 --> 00:25:01

are not taking advantage of it.

00:25:02 --> 00:25:10

And if you're not taking advantage of the people behind, they're going to take it. Because they know the reward. That's the that's, that's, that's that's the benefit of knowledge.

00:25:12 --> 00:25:39

So the better if you know that reward the first one, okay, the first row, are you gonna go? Are you gonna let other people take it? Their space even if you came late, as long as you don't harm people, some people they go and they harm others. So you have to remember, you have to be in a state of tranquility and the masjid is the calm because some people like push and, and that's also contradictory to the, to the teachings of the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah.

00:25:40 --> 00:25:52

Why? Because we know that the first lines are the best for the men. The first lines are the best for them and, and also, of course, catching the first technique to feel to the Hara.

00:25:53 --> 00:26:29

When you're when the Imam says Allahu Akbar, then you being in the masjid is something that's very, very important, extremely important. And of course, you're in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to stay close to it. Close to the masjid, next to the masjid. So when he would come out, that's when the Companions would stand up. That's when the Companions would stand. Otherwise, they were waiting and they were waiting and they were happy to wait to answer because they're still in the reward, the reward of the prayer is still there. It's like, the earlier you come to the masjid, the greater your reward is. And these

00:26:29 --> 00:26:30

are the people who are Charla,

00:26:31 --> 00:26:48

these are the people who, you know, on the Day of Judgment, there's their faces will be like, like the sun and those who come after the dawn, their faces will be like the moon. And also what's the what's another benefit from coming early to the masjid?

00:26:49 --> 00:26:54

What's another benefit of coming early? And by you know, it's one more benefit

00:26:59 --> 00:27:18

than you can see alone, yes, but there was a time between the Athan in the comment the Prophet salallahu Salam said a dua supplication now you're not Dubai Nila Dan Mallika dua Allah. You wrote, do banal as annually clamor to supplication between the Iran in your karma is not rejected.

00:27:19 --> 00:27:34

And that's why when you come early, before the dawn, or you know, before the comments anytime, you should make dua to Allah subhanaw taala you should supplicate that's the time for supplication and some countries. When did they suffocate?

00:27:35 --> 00:27:47

After the prayer they supplicate like yeah, Allah the time for it is before right? That's the time for and when you leave the Sunnah when you abandon the Sunnah a bit that takes place

00:27:48 --> 00:27:54

why do people supplicate together after the after the prayer some in some countries because they think that we haven't made do it yet.

00:27:55 --> 00:27:58

Why you know you the time for dua is when

00:28:00 --> 00:28:05

there's between the Iran and the karma. That's the time when it's accepted. After the prayer it's the time for this via

00:28:07 --> 00:28:49

the time for a dua is before and when you when you leave that sunnah, then another a bit quick takes place. And that's why come early. If you're waiting for the prayer, you're getting the reward of the prayer and supplicate to Allah subhanaw taala raise your hand and supplication after you pay your sunnah make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala as much as you can, because that's the time in which you, you know which you get the reward. And also of course, the messenger of allah sallallahu as I mentioned, also another thing that you benefit if you come early, when you come early, you hear the alarm, especially us here, when you hear the alarm, what do you say?

00:28:51 --> 00:29:03

You make the DUA you say what the wedding says and then you make the DUA and you say Alomar, Obadiah dalata, Tamela Salah to climb and do after the alarm, when you finish. What's the reward of it?

00:29:06 --> 00:29:08

You will have the intercession of the prophets ALLAH

00:29:10 --> 00:29:58

SubhanA dua accepted and your intercession, intercession of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day of judgment and that's why it's so rewarding to come early, especially coming for coming before the other to hear the other and make dua after the Athan. Inshallah you have the reward of and we know the headline times also. And sometimes we delay the event a little bit so, especially when it's far away, but generally, if you're here for the Athan, you have that opportunity that's one another benefit. But another big benefit of coming into play the match it, of course, you get the reward of multiple multiply by 2725 or 27. Based on the different narrations and the first ride

00:29:58 --> 00:30:00

we were speaking about the first one row

00:30:00 --> 00:30:42

was ALLAH the prophets of Allah Allah Allah, Allahu wa Malayaka to saloon Allah, Miami de su, Allah and His Messenger they prey upon or they make gifts a lot Salawat upon the right side of the lines. So where's the most rewarding part, it's actually the right side, if you have the choice, the first thing you do on the right, but with the right is already full. So that means what I mean, when you come, if the prayer hasn't started yet, it's just start from you should fill up from the first right from the right side. But if the prayer is already started, right, and then the line is being formed, then it should be equal, it should be even. So you start from the right but the only time you get to

00:30:42 --> 00:30:43

choose which side is when.

00:30:46 --> 00:31:27

When you come early, May when you come late, there's no choice you have you have no option. If the right is already for them, you have to go to the left. So you start right, left, right, left, the only time you really have an option to choose which side is when you come early. And when you come early. Allah and His messenger Allah and the Angels send their Salawat upon those who are in on the right side of the, the lines, what's the benefit that you get from? We mentioned some of these these are some some things that we've mentioned already. What's another benefit from coming to to pray in the masjid early or have come to pray in the masjid in general, is that the prophets of Allah Islam

00:31:27 --> 00:31:50

said either Carla had to come me when one of you says I mean, we'll call it a melodica for some I mean, and the angels are in the heavens, they say I mean, so whenever the Imam says I mean, you the angels also say I mean and so when you say I mean and you're I mean coincide with the Amin of the angels, then you know what the reward is?

00:31:52 --> 00:32:07

Wolfie Rolla who metacoda Women's and all your previous sins are forgiven. So every single time you pray, and you say I mean, after the Imam you have the opportunity to have all your previous as we fill you in.

00:32:08 --> 00:32:11

So that's that's another thing and so when you're praying by yourself,

00:32:13 --> 00:32:16

you don't have that you don't have the I mean of the month

00:32:17 --> 00:32:34

that's what the Prophet sallallaahu somebody said either I'm going to email for amino when the Imam says Amin then say I mean because when if you I mean coincides with the I mean of the angels and all your previous sins, inshallah we forgive so when is it I mean of the angels? What do they say?

00:32:35 --> 00:32:44

Like, immediately after the Imam says well of Bali? When the Imam says well, Marlene, then do you have to wait for the man to say I mean,

00:32:46 --> 00:32:51

some of the scholars say you do have to wait, but the stronger opinion here is that you don't have to wait as soon as he says Well, I

00:32:52 --> 00:33:14

really say I mean, I mean immediately because some people they wait for the Imam to say I mean, right but the Imam is gonna say I mean the same time also pretty much. So, when you when you say I mean, of course you have the opportunity to have all your sins be forgiven for and so this is just some of the

00:33:15 --> 00:33:17

some Hadith relating to

00:33:19 --> 00:33:29

you know, coming early to the masjid, praying in the in the masjid. And also one of the most rewarding things is also

00:33:31 --> 00:33:33

is coming, not just

00:33:34 --> 00:33:43

but not coming just to the prayer, but one of the most important prayers and, and one of the most important prayer for us to come early

00:33:44 --> 00:33:46

is the Juma prayer.

00:33:47 --> 00:33:52

Juma prayer, why? Because the reward for coming to the Juma prayer

00:33:53 --> 00:33:55

is extremely

00:33:56 --> 00:34:10

the reward for it is very, very great. And, of course, it's a mandatory mandatory prayer, but the reward is even greater because Because number one it's it's like it's our eat.

00:34:11 --> 00:34:12

And it's

00:34:14 --> 00:34:28

a lot of people they come in to Joomla, very, very late. And that's contradicted the Sunnah because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said manifesta Yama Joomla hosted in Geneva, whoever makes

00:34:29 --> 00:34:55

rehearsal for Juma the horses that you would make for Janab before appearing in state of Geneva. Some Raha? And then he goes, he goes out for Kanima aroma banana when he goes out early. Then it's as if he has slaughtered a cowboy. So Suhana how much is a Campbell? Many No.

00:34:57 --> 00:35:00

Cam was very expensive, most expensive than you

00:35:00 --> 00:35:01

Can price

00:35:02 --> 00:35:03

How much is it

00:35:04 --> 00:35:05

depends on the camo right?

00:35:09 --> 00:35:10

Back home is cheap

00:35:13 --> 00:36:01

you know that's, that's a lot of money for people back home. That's not the that's not chump change. That's a lot of money. $1,000 is a lot of money or 2000. But even in the old days, it's something that's great. I mean, it's expensive. Not every day you buy every single Friday, you can get the reward or a burden. I mean, this is a camera woman prophesied to Tanya, and then whoever goes and the second hour, then the second group of people the second hour for kinda macabre, and says if he slaughtered a cow, well, Mongla half is cited earlier. And whoever goes during the third hour, for Kanima power by caption upfront, it says SSE has slaughtered a, you know, a sheep. That's

00:36:03 --> 00:36:51

a big sheep. And it's fully fully grown. Woman Rothfuss aka Robbie, if I can name a robber the Georgia whoever goes after that it's as if he is slaughtered a, a chicken, right when Robbie sacrifi Minnesota Kanima programa de la. And as if somebody goes after that mean, this is the last hour right right before the mom comes up comes up. Then it says if he has he has sacrificed a the egg and the sun just did an egg. So the reward keeps on going down from a cow to an egg or from from a camel to an egg, you want a camera you want an egg, those people are like coming at the end. So you get the reward of sacrificing. And based on this Hadeeth by the way, it has them the law he says you

00:36:51 --> 00:36:53

want to eat an egg you have to slaughter the egg.

00:36:55 --> 00:37:47

And you can and you can sacrifice an egg also. But the majority of the scars is no, this is just to show you the difference reward and how in comparison to how great and how literal it is when you come late and how great it is when you were early for either holida an Imam, how the rattle Mala yesterday or a vicar when of course, you're those who are coming to the masjid they get you know, your your the the angels right? Who comes first? Right who comes first the records and then this is for people coming to the masjid. And then when you so this is what these are like, these are the good people, then you come after the Imam, the angels no longer write your name. So you're not even

00:37:47 --> 00:38:38

like you on the Day of Judgment, the angels that the people who are coming to the masjid so that when when did the record is proof come come for came forth. As proof for you. Hey, look at this guy, right? Like, you know, you need all the evidences for your good deeds, right and you don't lose anything. So who gets who gets who or who you know, like in school, you have a list of all of the, you know, the top, the top of the class based on their grades. So what kind of list do we have? We have a list of people coming to the masjid for Joomla early or not. And if you come in late, you're not even on the list. He's not even on the list of the you know, like the top top people. And so,

00:38:38 --> 00:38:59

the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Also he said this is a member coming to the masjid, because we have a lot of people who are always coming to the masjid late. He the Messenger of Allah Salam said In another Hadith in Sahih Bukhari they can do angioma can Isla coolibah demeanor verbal massage and mustard melodica you have to google I will follow Well,

00:39:00 --> 00:39:15

every single Joomla there's an angel that's at the door. They were right. The first people to come in first for either jealously, ma'am, though, a sort of when the man sits down, meaning the Imam starts the footpath, but

00:39:16 --> 00:39:57

then they closed, they're closed, they closed the Soho, they close their books of record, but Yeah, yesterday Merona Zikr. And the angels also listened to the to the thicket. They listened to the the Hotbox SubhanAllah. So have you given your given credit to the people but also who else is listening? Yeah, Allah the angels. The angels are listening to the football also. The angels and how do they listen to a football? They don't get distracted. They listen to the this is an act of worship, that the angels even the angels do it. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordered us

00:39:58 --> 00:39:59

to come and of course

00:40:00 --> 00:40:15

As the reward the reward is very great for all the prayers to come early. But specifically when it comes to Joomla it's even more rewarding and and of course, when you come to the masjid, you should also

00:40:17 --> 00:40:20

you know go as close as you can to the EMA

00:40:21 --> 00:40:29

as close as you can to the EMA and the reason is because the prophets of Allah Allah was also mentioned that hadith

00:40:31 --> 00:40:34

he said men versus women russula Yama, Giamatti?

00:40:36 --> 00:40:40

Well, whoever vassula that means, whoever

00:40:41 --> 00:41:22

whoever makes hosel causes himself to be instead of Vasile, this is this was some of the scholars have said, so what is it also, that means also undo my view, your view marry, some of the scholars matches sunnah to this to put yourself in that state meaning you sleep with your wife, right? So you have marital relations with the wife or drama, then you may worsen and if you don't, of course, you just make also if you don't have you know, you're not married, just make listen. We're back Cara Webtech and he makes the effort to go early and he arrives early because sometimes you go early, but you don't arrive early because you can go early. Right but if you live far away, you're gonna arrive

00:41:22 --> 00:41:28

late. So you go early, to the point where you can arrive early

00:41:29 --> 00:42:01

you go early to arrive or you go on Masha while I'm Jakob which means what you walk, and don't write. So if you're able to, if you have a masjid, that you can walk to and you have the option to write, the reward for walking when you're able to walk is greater than writing. Well then Emil Eema and then he goes close to the Imam and then once and also Subhanallah notice the province and said well Masha, Allah I'm Jakob, what's the problem? Well, we have what's the big problem? We have?

00:42:02 --> 00:42:10

parking. Parking, right? So if we were to follow the sooner we would need less parking spaces.

00:42:11 --> 00:42:17

Right? As is the Province of New our situation, right? Our dean is so perfect. It sounds

00:42:18 --> 00:42:36

like you know, they didn't have you know, they didn't have any like problems like parking lots and so forth. In the old days, they had some people bring their camels and stuff like that, but not a lot, right. He would just tie you would always have space usually. Right? But if we were to follow the Sunnah, we wouldn't have problems with parking. Why?

00:42:38 --> 00:42:55

Because most people will be coming to the masjid at least Juma walking right in the prophets of Allah knows and said, Well Masha, Allah Murica. Now what's the reward of doing all of this? Well, then I mean, the man and you come close to the man because some people come to the masjid early. Where do they sit? Back there?

00:42:56 --> 00:43:04

Right, they come early. They sit way back there or like, you know, I need it's more comfortable sitting here now. All right. Yeah, it's okay if you can get the walk in.

00:43:07 --> 00:43:31

If you if you can't, but you face the man. Or you you come close to the man once. And also he listens. When Be quiet. He stay silent. Was stammered Welcome. I'm yellow. He listens. And he doesn't play around. Because some people they listen, but they're playing around with the shirt and playing around with the people who actually mildly pray a lot play around. Some people even play around with their thoughts.

00:43:32 --> 00:43:38

So you don't touch anything. You don't play around with anything. What is the reward?

00:43:39 --> 00:43:41

What is the reward if you do this on Joomla?

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

And listen, because ALLAH SubhanA was so generous, that you do something little like this.

00:43:50 --> 00:44:02

Just once a week, the reward kinda low equally hot waiting. You have to her every single step that you take, you know, the reward is Yes.

00:44:04 --> 00:44:06

At zero Senate in cm who have a

00:44:08 --> 00:44:13

law called the reward of one years worth of praying and fasting

00:44:16 --> 00:44:17

and the award of how much

00:44:18 --> 00:44:23

one year's worth of prayer, fasting and praying standing up in prayer.

00:44:25 --> 00:44:26

One year,

00:44:27 --> 00:44:29

though, you want one year's worth of reward?

00:44:31 --> 00:44:45

one year's worth. Imagine if somebody gave you so okay. If you do it like this. Yeah, I just want you to once a week, okay, get some exercise, walk to work, instead of writing. And on that day.

00:44:46 --> 00:44:59

00:45:00 --> 00:45:09

If you will get this a year's worth of salary whenever you make the whole year you get for that day who would not go?

00:45:11 --> 00:45:15

Would you walk? If you weren't in downtown would you walk to downtown?

00:45:18 --> 00:45:39

No, no, I'm not talking about a year's worth in salary. Okay, I'm not talking about a year's worth in salary only how many years worth of salary every the province of a lot so said listen to this carefully. He said, he said Can Allah who will be holy hot wet and you have to be equally hot

00:45:40 --> 00:45:45

every step is a years worth of praying and fasting

00:45:49 --> 00:45:59

the the generosity and the kindness and of Allah subhanaw taala to give you the reward of a year for every step,

00:46:00 --> 00:46:02

every step, but how many people you think do that?

00:46:04 --> 00:46:11

With this in mind, very few people why why are so few people do it? Because the Schaefer knows the reward.

00:46:13 --> 00:46:50

grader rewarded, you will do all that he can to make sure that you don't fulfill these conditions. So what's the condition again? First, Mombasa Yama Yama, what does he mean? Ghosal. Okay for Joomla. mucosal for Joomla was Salah means if you have the opportunity, you know, fulfill your wife's rights also, like so. That right? Well, but carob techer come early, leave early, come early, arrive early. Walk and don't ride which means even if you have a car, walk and don't ride and when you come into the masjid, what do you do?

00:46:51 --> 00:47:12

They'll stay in the back come as close as you can to the mouth. And then when the equipment starts, don't talk, listen. Don't play with anything. Every single step that you took to the masjid, you get the reward of a year's fasting, the years prayer. Allah Allah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:47:13 --> 00:47:17

is so generous because one of you can see one says to intergender

00:47:18 --> 00:47:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala once it gives us so many opportunities, to earn his mercy to earn the reward from Allah subhanho wa taala. And so, when, when, when Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us these opportunities, a lot of people don't take advantage of it. And so, sha Allah we,

00:47:40 --> 00:48:05

I wanted to just just discovered this. And when we speak about coming early, come in the front line, stay in the front rows. This is something that's very, very important. Just a reminder for everyone for myself, everyone else. Everyone here and everyone listening, to always take advantage to come to the masjid for prayer come early. And you know, don't

00:48:06 --> 00:48:09

you know when you're waiting for the message waiting for the prayer.

00:48:10 --> 00:48:45

It's, it's very rewarding. You're being rewarded by Allah Subhana Allah for. So don't stay in the masjid as if because some people when they're in the masjid, they feel very uncomfortable. They just want to leave quickly. And there are some people who love to come to the masjid. Their hearts in the heart is in the masjid. And that's what we mean when we say a person's heart is connected to the masjid when they go out to the masjid. It's like a it's like a fish outside the water. Outside of the river, or outside of the ocean. I officially outside was like can't survive has to come back to the masjid to feel comfortable. But for some people, it's the opposite.

00:48:46 --> 00:48:50

The Mercy is like let me just finish my thing. It's a burden that you want to get out quickly.

00:48:51 --> 00:49:33

The people who will be shade on a day of judgment are the ones who are always whose hearts are always connected to the masjid. They always come and they always love to stay in the masjid. They always come to the classes in the masjid. And they always you know, sit down peacefully, tranquillity. Remember Allah making dua supplicating to Allah, these are the people who are the true men who inshallah will be rewarded in this life in sha Allah and also in the hereafter. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to teach us that which benefits and benefits from now stylists. Next week, inshallah we'll continue from the omelet. And we'll mention some of the rules some of the callback

00:49:33 --> 00:49:36

to some of the rulings. We just want. I just wanted to

00:49:37 --> 00:49:59

have this particular session as a reminder for us to come to the masjid early to also come to the front row, the reward and the front row is also very great coming to the front and also when you come into the masjid make sure you come and come calmly. So even if you're driving, don't be in a hurry. Don't be in hurry because why? Because that's when you

00:50:00 --> 00:50:02

I may get a ticket

00:50:03 --> 00:50:38

as a result of it. So don't be in a hurry. Try to come early, to prepare ahead of time, so that you don't have to hurry. And if you get to the masjid in sha Allah, then if you get to get here early, and just wait for the prayer, you're you're still in prayer and make lots of dua between the Adan and the karma, chama and then in sha Allah, on the Day of Judgment, you will see the reward is very, very great, extremely great. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us MSOs who will be shaded from the day of judgment and the day in which there'll be no shades of shade of anyone have any questions?

00:50:39 --> 00:50:49

None Inshallah, we'll end it right now. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala he prolongs our life. Next week, inshallah we'll continue again. I think this is this time okay, or do you want after each other?

00:50:50 --> 00:50:56

I think this is better, so that you can you after each other can just go early, so we'll keep it in those times.
