all we mentioned already
we were speaking about the hara no renounce Allah Charlo. It's pretty much a review of what we went through but some of the common mistakes that we covered and some of them actually we actually didn't cover. And we mentioned the first thing when we spoke about the harbor is of course
is somebody can somebody conditions and one of the conditions of the horrors from a hadith Abdullah neuroma radula horrible. He said that the prophets of Allah have said and this is one of the Hadith that we covered, actually, that Tupelo sletten Be ready to hold a lot of value Surat be invited to hold wala sadaqa Minwoo rule, Allah Subhana Allah does not accept any prayer without purification. And there is no sadaqa that can be taken from wealth that's taken wrongly in Jihad visa vie dilla. When you take from other people, so of course what are some of the things
in relation to that? And we know that the Hadith we mentioned already another Hadith similar to it is also from Hadith from Bocanegra hora de la and he said, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said led to follow so that women so that women
that took Vello Serrato men apart person who breaks his will do his prayer is not accepted.
Until he makes will do so,
what are some of the things in relation to and so forth that a lot of people make, make mistakes about? Well, the first thing of course, is
you know there there, there are a lot of mistakes. And these mistakes are sometimes miss misunderstanding, and most of it is because of lack of seeking knowledge. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa so said Tala reloaded adequately Muslim
seeking knowledge is mandatory upon every Muslim and Allah Subhana Allah says first Allah Allah decree, including letter Allah when asked the people of knowledge, if indeed you do not know. And so when when it comes to prayer, and and will do the prophets of Allah I think he was said Sallam he said Salah Kamara at Munoz Sunday, pray as you see me pray. So when it comes to Reba, the worship of Allah subhanaw taala we can't do anything unless we find an action that the Prophet sallallahu did. Because he said so Luca Morrow at morning on Sunday, pray as if you see me pray. So the only the only thing you can do in a bada? Is that what you have proof for? And you can't just do anything
that because you think it's good, no. Everything is haram, everything is prohibited, except for that which we have been ordered to do or what we have proof for when it comes to the dunya matters we mentioned, right? Everything is halal, unless you have proof otherwise. So everything is halal in the dunya that's not connected to Abu unless we have a hadith unless we have it. But when it comes to worship, everything is haram. You can't do anything in worship, except that you have evidence and proof from Allah Subhana Allah and from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam also even in Hajj. He the Prophet saw a lot of lives and said Hadith from Javelin Abdullah Lita, who I named Manasa Ko, take
from me, your rituals? So when we think when we make Hajj, how do we make Hajj The Prophet said a lot less absurd follow my actions. And he says for in the law, the law, the law,
by the Hajj he has.
He said, I don't know if I can make another hydrogen. In other words, everyone pay attention to what I do. Pay attention to what I do, because this is maybe the only time that you're going to be able to determine how to make Hajj and take your lessons from it. And so
some of the mistakes that one of the main mistakes I will do is is negligence and we'll do itself what is negligence and negligence and mudo is someone who makes wudu but they're they're in a hurry. They're in a hurry and so they don't wash the areas properly. And negligence. It is something that is not something that should that should be taken lightly. Why? Because the prophets of Allah have said, wait a minute now, as we will we'll do it
He said, Whoa, do the heels in the hellfire, make sure you perfect your will do. Make sure you perfect you will do. So the perfection of prayer starts from the perfection I will do. And that's why the Prophet Salam said Woe to the hills of the Hellfire, which means what, which means if you're not proud you're not careful in making will do the areas that you don't watch properly, and that those areas are prone to be in the hellfire. There's a there's a warning that you will be in the Hellfire if you're not careful and making will do. So we're not talking about those who don't pray or those who don't make although we do those who make will do, but they are negligent, which means
they're not. They don't. They're not careful. So some people don't they will do just really quick and they're not taking their time.
Because when you take your time the reward is greater. Anytime you do something, you do it perfectly why? Because if you perfect your will do and you pray to rock as a sudden, and you don't and you're concentrating all of all the time mainly meaning what? Excellence the reward of excellence is so great. The reward of being careful and being meticulous is so great that all your previous sins will be forgiven for
whoever perfects or will do and then praise to raucous ly you had to feed him and he does not fully concentrates. He does not
he does not think about anything except for that which is appropriate and prayer. Then all of his previous sins will be forgiven for that means you have concentration concentration although meticulousness in Gulu and concentration and prayer, all your previous sins will be forgiven.
Kind of hello hello accorded and also you know when you when you, you've asked, you'd have all your premises be forgiven for ourselves when you make Hajj. You have all your previous sins be forgiven for Romans, mon sama Ramadan, even like the Sabbath luthier Allah who might have had them in Zambia. And then when Hijjah Well, Amir forth Well, I'm just fine. But Jeremy has an OB he came to me while at
a person who makes hij and he does not speak Luton and lewdness there and he does not in a manner that was he controls his himself and does not mention anything that is inappropriate.
An act inappropriately John heights and his patient will have he will he will come back from his heart, like the day that he his mother gave birth to him. In other words, free of sin. Allah will he's forgiven for but you know, most people don't realize every single time you make a loop.
Every time you may, will do and you pray to rockers. Make sure you've been focused on all your previous sins are forgiven for In fact, if you come to pray that Yamaha prayer, the obligatory prayer, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said either I'm gonna email a middle when the Imam says I mean, then say I mean, say I mean, because whoever I mean
coincides with the I mean, of the whoever, whoever whoever's I mean coincides with the I mean of the angels, who will have all his premises to be forgiven for.
So because when we say I mean the angels also say, so when you say I mean together the angels that means every single time you come to the masjid or you pray with the Imam, the greatness of the reward is you can also have your previous all your previous has been forgiven for because Allah subhanaw taala wants us to intergender Well, lo Yeah, Andrew Iridessa. So be careful when you're making will do prayer, professional prayer, starts with the perfection of will do and not being here not
being negligent and will do is a major sin. negligence and will do is a major sin. Why? Because there's a warning of punishment about it, as the Prophet saw a lot so said, another one also, is when you're making we'll do another common mistake that people make is that they don't wash the areas that are hard to wash. Right? And they don't wash like the area between the fingers or the areas between the toes. And the negligence and some people also they don't wash all the way they don't wash their hands. So what I mean by don't wash your hands, or some people don't wash their the
risks, right? Because they do what they make will do whether the first washing or the end is sooner right? But then the washing of the hands is the washing from the tip of the finger to the elbow. One common mistake that people make especially now with sinks is that they when they start making a little do they wash here, they put their hand under the sick they go like this, right? And there's one part that they didn't watch and that's from here to here the wrist. They only watch this part. And so because that they didn't watch that
They only watch that part only. That means you didn't wash your hand. Because you have to wash your hand it to your elbows, I mean from the wrist, or from the tip of your finger all the way to the elbow, including the elbow itself, also, when you're washing, and that's why some people I see some people don't like this. And then they all they do is wipe here. And this area might be wet, right? But did they wash it?
They did, they washed it at the beginning. But that's not the washing of the hands. That's sunnah. The obligatory action is washing of the whole hand again, is, is firstly, the idea chameleon morale means wash your hands to the, the whole hand to the elbow. And so that's why that's another common mistake that we mentioned. And we covered before. But just a reminder, because we're, we're, you know, we're gonna start a new one in sha Allah. And so when a person makes
another mistake that some people make when they
when they wash the face, and part of the model and purification, is when they wash their face, they don't wash the whole area of their face. So they wash here. Now what's the common area that's not washed? On the side, any side, so you only wash in this area, and they don't. And sometimes some people they have like, you know, thin, thin beards, or they have they don't have you know, or don't even have side sideburns or anything like that. So it's from ear to ear, right. And so a lot of people watch this area, and they leave the area. Here, even though there's a difference of opinion amongst the scholars about that particular area. But for those who have who don't have a sideburns,
it's an area that's showing, which means it's part of your face. So if it's part of your face, that means washing your face is from the hairline to the chin. And if you don't have a hairline, some people might not have a hairline.
That's wherever normal hairline would be in that area. If you did have hair that will be that will be good. Because some people they don't have any What are you going to watch? Go ahead. No, you don't have to. So wherever the area was supposed to be when you're facing that person, so make sure you watch carefully also the face because you see a lot of people actually don't watch the whole face when they do that.
Oh, also another thing that some people don't, they a couple of things that people make mistake about. And that is they don't complete a many of the actions or washing or the wiping. So when they wash their hands, their feet, they only wash the top of the feet.
They just watched the top of the feet, and the back and so forth, and is there negligent about because why? Because one of the more difficult areas to watch is your feet. And you don't watch it properly. So you don't watch it all the way. And also when they wipe their head, the stronger opinion. And then you should watch the Sunnah is to wipe your whole head, start from the beginning, go to the back and then come back to the front and Aluna minerals and also the ears are considered part of the head.
So the ears are considered part of the head. And the area the face is from from the hairline to the chin.
And from the from side to side and on your ears. So make sure you watch your whole head. And also another thing that people will know when you do have like a thin beard, right? That's something that a person looks at, they can see. That area also requires that you screw up also, you get it wet also. So there's a lot of people who see all of these little details here. Many people when they go do they make it so quickly,
that they never even think about these details. And maybe you might say, well, you know, but am I responsible for that if I didn't know? What if I didn't watch properly because I was in a hurry.
Those are those little those little details really count? Do they matter?
Of course they matter and that's why the Prophet saw some of one of the companions. He said why lose a puppy when or not he says be careful on the heels of the Hellfire because these companions were tired and so you know when you're tired you're making will do you tend to be negligent or you're not as careful when you're washing your feet. And so because of that the prophets of Allah has warned them gave them a stern warning. He said Woe to the heels in hellfire water, the heels and the hellfire.
And, as I mentioned also make sure that you remember I mentioned that you have to make sure that all the areas are wet. The other area that a lot of people don't take care of is hadith is between the toes
mystery definition dad and mystery ignatia Dad wrote the law he said, right Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam either worldwide.
You'd like you don't like you'd like a cyber rich lady within Siri. He said
that a duck is,
is to, to, to wipe the area between he between his his his, the profit somebody made will do. Mr. Denisha dad said, the Messenger of Allah Allah Allah has some word use his pinkie may consider he is a pinkie is the smallest way. And because it's the smallest, it's easiest to go between the two toes. So he would, he would use his pinky, to make sure that the water reaches the area between the towns. And so this is what the prophets of Allah did. This is what almost stolen initial data of the law said and you know, when we're making what we do, how many people do you see using their pinky? And making sure that the area is what between the toes, not too many people, but this is what the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did, and another Hadith from Citizen and Timothy from Abdullah in our bus or de la Rasulullah sallallahu ala either to Abdullah
II that they that were bought for Halal by nasaga aka like, in this particular hadith is a Hadith and sunnah to me, Al Imam and Al bernisa. This is Hadith as authentic. And it means that Abdullah nobis, he said, either thermoblock that the Prophet Salam said when you make will do for Halal bein Asad de COVID-19. What did you like? He said, When you make it, you will know make sure you you cover the areas. Make sure Hala means to go in between the wet the areas between your fingers and your toes. Make sure halal for Halal management when you do this, this particular area because imagine how many times have you able to okay, and you just wipe over the top? And of course this
area is covered? And if that area is not what are you responsible?
For you are responsible on the day of judgment you meet Allah, how many prayers Have you prayed without proper will? Does that count?
You're responsible because you're negligent. You weren't careful when you make the will do and so one of the things that people are
our, you know people are negligent about is is wiping or
what do they call it? How would you call this not doing anything but
scrubbing the area, scrubbing the area between your fingers and your toes. And of course, one thing that's also very prevalent now a lot of people do. That's especially with we with our sinks that we have now is wasting water, wasting water. A lot of people waste a lot of water. And that's not something that's permissible. In fact, the prophet that Allah Subhana Allah says Allah to sniffle and Nicola, you have been mostly thin, so use only a little bit of water. When you make it a little. Be careful, make sure you scrub properly. But you also have to not waste water also. So in Islam, some people might say, well, I use more water so that everything will be wet. Make sure that
everything's clean. No, it's a middle path. We don't waste and we're not negligent. The sooner is the middle path. We don't waste resources. We don't waste water and say what water is cheap. We live in Seattle plenty of water. It doesn't matter whether it's cheap or not. It still cost you money also, and wasting is not something that Allah subhanho wa Taala does. In fact, Allah says Well, I 234 in Allah, La you humbleness reefy you weren't allowed to love you. Allah does not love those ways.
Allah subhanho wa Taala does not love waste, people who waste things. So wasting water, you might say, well, let me just, you know, okay, let me just, you know, just make sure they use enough water and they use enough water Yeah, but don't waste it. And that's how you also earn the love of Allah. Because Allah does not love those who are wasteful. And the Prophet Solomon says I will hurry from aniseh nomadic and wrote the law horrible. And then the visa of Allah and in Ghana yes it will be saw in LFO city I'm dad we at our block will move them.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Cana yet Tesira Bissau the Messenger of Allah used to make Lulu okay used to make losses with the saw. The saw is a dry measurement, and it's about a two liter less smaller than a two liter bottle
Have you calculated calculated, it's a lot less than a two liter bottle. And so
it's actually actually about, you know, about half of that probably one liter. So of water. And so the profits of them used, he didn't use much water. And and when he made will do well yet Avada, Bill Mud, mud mud this word
is one handful of water, you know what one handful the water is, you know the water, the amount of water that we have, when you drink, you know, there's a big bottle, and then there's a small bottle, right, that small bottle, you know, then Ramadan, sometimes we have the smaller bottles, so we don't waste. So the smaller bottle, I'm gonna say how many ounces, eight ounces as well. That small bottle, not the big bottle. That's how much the Prophet salallahu used to make will do it. For us. That's the whole model. Okay. For us, that's not even one one washing, we turn on the sink, it's already more than that right away the first two seconds, first three seconds, we've already used
more than what the prophets will use with all
the first two seconds, we use more we use more water than with a profit some use the whole will do already. And so that's why if you want to use a sink, it's okay. But try to you know, try to make sure you don't turn all the way and make it run. And so you knew you wash the then you close it up or just make it you know just enough that you have enough water to make it wet. And then you screw up, then you screw up the areas that need scrubbing. And if you do that in sha Allah, in sha Allah
when you stand up for prayer, you will reward and Salah will be greater because you're following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So I know next week in sha Allah, we will cover more I don't want to take more of your time this I just wanted to end with some of the mistakes again, that we covered already. And just a reminder for everyone because these are some things you know, if you don't take anything from this whole section, then these mistakes these things that we can apply every single day we do every single day for almost every prayer, we should try to at least do these things correctly. So that we can earn the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and have our acts of
worship be accepted. So anyone have any questions?
You mentioned the years
Yeah, the water what the IRS you wipe. So anytime you wipe, wipe it the difference between wiping because one Allah Subhana Allah mentions one Sahabi
Rosie Cook, right so wipe your head. So the wiping is the difference between wiping and washing is washing as you use water and with it drips. Right wiping as you're wiping with wet and not necessarily dripping. So when you're wiping your ears, you don't put water in your ear. You wipe with wet fingers. So you go like this, come back and he put your right here remember this area here. So you're wiping right you're wiping the inside of your ear. And then you wipe the outside of your ear with the with the with your thumb. So this is this the pointy finger. You start at the top and then you wipe down and then from the bottom, you wipe up and you only do it one time just like you
So wiping is not you're not putting water in it yet. And so and you don't need to get new water for the years. Right so the IRS is you're wiping one time. Let's say your hands wet right so you're not putting water in your head. You just have a wet hand and then you wipe from the front to the back. And then from the back to the front and then you go to the ear you go like this down and then you go up from the back in the back and then you walk through here and your head
no your hair shouldn't be dripping water because it was dripping that means you're washing so if someone were to do this, okay, they made will do right and then they finish all the exit will do and then it comes to the whiteboard they had they did not wipe they did this
they put their head they put their head on this and the bottom of the sink okay. And they put in they didn't wipe they will do is not valid. Because Allah ordered you to wipe not to wash. So when you wash it doesn't count as wiping you never wiped. So to get your hair wet by washing there's not that it's not valid for
so all you have to do is wipe
yes one time some people put their fingers in the beard yeah that's why I said you could use use a scrub your if you have a light be like beard where you're where you can see the flash or your chin through the
Hear that you have to scrub. But if you don't, if you have a thick beard, then you don't have to. Because Because the reason is because when you're saying face, the description of a face to scholars I mentioned is that which others see when they're looking at you face to face. So let's say if you have a thick beard, they can't see the
they can't see the area under your under your beard. But if you have a thin beard, then you can actually see it and so that's why you have to scrub. You get to yes. Well,
does anyone else have any questions? Because I was the one behind the question.
