except illa Chara Ko COVID,

00:00:04 --> 00:00:08

except they will get the same reward Subhanallah they're in MENA,

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

they are home, but they will get the same reward.

00:00:16 --> 00:00:33

The distance that you have problem, they will get the same reward. This traveling what feast habila. Remember the girl from Telugu, the going out visa villa, that there is not a single Valley you traverse and you cross except they get a reward also

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

have a single member.

00:00:37 --> 00:01:18

Because they have a reason for it. They couldn't make it because maybe they're sick. Or they really want there will come some companions who wanted to come. But they didn't. They didn't, they did not have the means to do so they didn't have like others. Because you have to have means to travel, you have to have a capital, you have to have equipment. So they didn't have anything they really wanted to come. But they were not able to come for one reason or another. But if they did have it, they would have joined us. So because of that they will get the same reward. And so those who are traveling also, when you're traveling,

00:01:19 --> 00:01:25

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to shorten his prayers. They used to shorten his prayers.

00:01:27 --> 00:01:29

And he would pray to her to rock and

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

they will pray an answer to rockets.

00:01:33 --> 00:01:43

And he will pray Asia to rock. And of course 5g has already to and Maghrib is three so he keeps the it's still remains that

00:01:47 --> 00:01:54

before after, didn't pray them. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala loves

00:01:56 --> 00:02:15

from His servants, that if he gives them a concession, that means if he makes it easy for them that they take it. It's like a gift. When you're traveling Allah is giving you a gift from for the two we're making it easy you're traveling, just pray to rock as an adult. Just pray to rockers when it's

00:02:17 --> 00:02:21

time, then you play your two rockers and you're going to add another two of sudden

00:02:23 --> 00:02:36

do you add another tune? No, you don't? Because then it's like why would you? Why would What's the meaning of the gift that Allah gave that ease that Allah gave Allah wanting to make it easy for you to give you to like as of now you're gonna pray for anyways.

00:02:38 --> 00:02:41

As soon as before, after, then

00:02:42 --> 00:03:28

it would nullify that the ease that Allah gave you. And so, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not pray the sooner or whatever, with the exception of the Toorak as of the origin, and he would pray his wisdom, he would not abandon the with it. And of course, also at nighttime, some of the companions used to pray. It used to pray the hydrogen also. Right. So this is these are the prayers are outside, outside the, the shortening of the prayers, if it's connected to the shortening of the prayer, then the prophets underline and some would accept that another conception that Allah gave, they wouldn't pay the suddenness. But even if you don't do so, actually more rewarding for you.

00:03:29 --> 00:03:39

more rewarding for you. But whatever you're able to pray whatever you used to do, let's say used to fast before you travel, every single Tuesday every Monday and Thursdays.

00:03:40 --> 00:04:07

Use the fast are used to fast every other day. But when you're traveling, it's more difficult. So you can't fast. You're super fast. You can't pray regular prayers, you will surely still get the same reward. So every prayer that you used to go to the masjid, he will still get the same reward as praying in the masjid also, even though you're just praying to backers, but those two raka so that's why every single person who prays

00:04:09 --> 00:04:19

even though when we say the reward, the reward that a person gets for every prayer is different because everybody is different.

00:04:22 --> 00:04:29

It's the reward the prayer itself. And the person itself also determine how much the reward they get.

00:04:30 --> 00:04:39

Because a lot of hand iPads is very gracious. So if a person prays, let's say somebody stays stands up and pray.

00:04:40 --> 00:04:59

They might even get more reward. The as a result of them, let's say they're praying and then the two travelers, right one is traveling, and he has a partner. He has a partner with him. And they both pray the same prayer. Right same prayer

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

But one person might get a lot more reward because when he was at home, what he used to do

00:05:05 --> 00:05:27

is masjid, the other person just prayed at home. But now they're traveling they still get the same prayer. So that's why when you're coming to the masjid, also, and when you're doing a good deed, there are many other factors and variables that determine how much the reward a person gets. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:05:28 --> 00:05:31

that, that led by the

00:05:34 --> 00:05:35


00:05:36 --> 00:05:42

the worship of Allah subhana, Allah in times of trials and tribulations, in times of turmoil,

00:05:43 --> 00:05:46

in times of turmoil,

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

a person will get

00:05:49 --> 00:05:51

50 folds

00:05:52 --> 00:05:58

50 fold, meaning a loss of Handwara Taala will multiply by 50 times

00:05:59 --> 00:06:14

in terms of difficulties in terms of turmoils and hardship because it's so much harder to, to establish prayer so much harder to worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in times of turmoil, and so the Companions, they said,

00:06:15 --> 00:06:27

okay, they get 50 prayers, what do you mean 50 of them are 50 and 50 of theirs, are 50 of ours. So they understood that the reward that the companions get, that they get is much more

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

from seeing them in net or from Siena, Minko.

00:06:35 --> 00:06:42

50 There are those people in the generations that come later on in time, those times are 50 like us,

00:06:43 --> 00:06:45

they said, 50 like you guys

00:06:46 --> 00:06:51

50, like the Companions, the worship of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu.

00:06:52 --> 00:06:55

Why, because everything that they do is magnified.

00:06:56 --> 00:07:25

What because of their status, because of their position, because of their influence. Because whatever they're doing people learn from them. You know, whatever they teach, generations will come afterwards, we'll learn from them. And they're the reward that the companions get is so much more because of their status. And Allah subhanaw taala raise the status of those people. And so the people also, there's also to follow, that's a difference of

00:07:27 --> 00:07:33

gritty of reward in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala based on

00:07:34 --> 00:07:43

the person based on the person itself, it's not based on like, the color of your skin or the language that you speak, or whatever it is, it's based on top line,

00:07:44 --> 00:07:51

basis sincerity. A person who sincere is not like someone who is not sincere.

00:07:52 --> 00:07:53

A person who is

00:07:55 --> 00:08:01

concentrating is not like the one who is not concentrating. So when a person was a person who's standing up in prayer,

00:08:03 --> 00:08:22

if you're concentrating, and you're focused in your prayer, from the beginning to the end, it's not like the one who stands up to pray, and thinks about all kinds of things. By the way, when you stand up to pray immediately. What happens when you stand up to pray, like before?

00:08:23 --> 00:08:32

You know, you might be, you know, you might be thinking about other things. And actually, sometimes you make music. But then as soon as you stand up for prayer, everything comes to you.

00:08:33 --> 00:08:49

Everything comes to you. Why, because the Shangela knows, he knows how valuable this prayer is. He knows how valuable and it's so valuable that there is a specific duty shaitan

00:08:51 --> 00:09:00

comes and is waiting for the people who pray. And he is so his job is to distract you and your prayer.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:04

That's why it's so difficult because he has there's an shaytaan

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

specific job is to distract you in prayer.

00:09:10 --> 00:09:43

And the sheltering Of course they have there are many. But you know if you if it's something that's important, then you delegate or you have someone or have some someone that is specific for that duty. Something very, very important. So that's, that's so that's why when you stand up this specific shaitan and his only duty is to distract you in your prayer. And so that's why when we're praying also, when you come into the masjid,

00:09:44 --> 00:09:52

when you're focused in your prayer, inshallah you get 25 but that 25 is more rewarding.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:59

25 is better than, better than it's better than better than

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

praying at home. Of course, we say that the majority of the scholars of the opinion of that prayer is valid also, like the only some scholars like Cher for the cemetery and others have mentioned that the Prayer is not valid. And we said the stronger opinion is valid. It is, it is something that it is valid. And when we say

00:10:24 --> 00:10:33

when we say something is valid, it means that you don't have to repeat it because there are two types of things acceptability and rigidity, and

00:10:34 --> 00:10:39

reward. The reward and validity are two different

00:10:42 --> 00:10:51

and sometimes, an act is even not accepted in terms of not accepted and decided Hola, but it's still considered valid.

00:10:52 --> 00:10:54

Like what like if someone were to make Hutch

00:10:56 --> 00:10:58

if Allah accepts the person's height,

00:10:59 --> 00:11:15

it is hedge McGrew hatch that does not have sins and so forth in it, meaning you try your very best to avoid that all the things are prohibited, and you do it correctly, and it's accepted the reward for this gentleman, but let's say somebody makes Hajj

00:11:16 --> 00:11:17

and they,

00:11:18 --> 00:11:24

like, you know, in the hajj, like they're not patient that because some people when it comes to hygiene

00:11:25 --> 00:11:30

before the Hajj begins, and for the hungry guests, they already complained.

00:11:32 --> 00:11:43

The early complaining before the highest begins, especially now you know, the difficulty and registration and so forth. There are some people they arrested, they already complaining about everything.

00:11:45 --> 00:12:01

Complaining about the prices of hotel from playing but this instead of having the thanking Allah for the opportunity, they're complaining about everything already. And so then the hardship comes, and the whole time all they're doing is is complaining.

00:12:02 --> 00:12:22

Complaining the whole time, not being thankful to Allah for the opportunity. And take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity. complain about the organization is a test for you. You go into the hole you go, you know any country you go in, what happens? You land. You leave the airport right away, but not much.

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

You learn

00:12:26 --> 00:12:32

I have been in the airport for over 24 hours. I mean, for me personally.

00:12:33 --> 00:12:44

I land at six o'clock at the afternoon. I don't leave the airport until six o'clock next day or next next day.

00:12:45 --> 00:12:49

Not six o'clock in the morning. No. Six o'clock the next day.

00:12:50 --> 00:12:54

Because it's so an organized.

00:12:55 --> 00:13:16

I have been in the airport for 24 hours. Like something very easy. Just paperwork go leave, right? No. Sometimes in some many years, like you know, the six, seven hour right? That's average, six, seven hours. But I've been in there have been times in which I was stuck in the airport for 24 hours

00:13:17 --> 00:13:41

and handled sometimes you know you see the people who are with you. Right you see the people who are with you there's a group of people handler to take an advantage makes things difficult. The making will do heck the coming ask what Sooners Can I pray right now? So far there as soon as what can I do? They're like asking What Can I Do you know why we're waiting and telling you and then there are others.

00:13:43 --> 00:13:52

They're complaining as soon as they wake up, they're complaining left and right, left and right. So the reward that a person gets.

00:13:53 --> 00:14:25

It's not it's based on not just it's not just the act of self hospital. It's everything around it that Allah subhanaw knows Allah Subhana Allah guides people, towards patients. And Allah subhanho wa Taala helps strengthen them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala when he puts in your mind, your heart, you know you you realize, hey, this is this is, this is feasability Allah, whatever hardship I'm in, I'm being rewarded by Allah Subhana Allah that.

00:14:27 --> 00:14:30

Because if you're in a situation and you're complaining,

00:14:32 --> 00:14:59

there's nothing that's changing anyways. Nothing's going to change until you know you everybody's trying to do their best to finish everything in time. And you know, sometimes things happen. Sometimes. There are times in which we've gone to the airport, and it takes us four or five, six hours, and there have been times in airport mode. It took us 18 hours to go back at digit. Imagine being stuck on a bus for 18 hours.

00:15:01 --> 00:15:04

You're about to leave. At night, the plane already left.

00:15:05 --> 00:15:16

Like the whole group misses the plane, SS. And then of course you have some people. This is at the end our tests a person all the way to the end.

00:15:18 --> 00:15:41

That's the hutch. Is it like life also. And so when you're praying also, when you're traveling, when you're working, or you're praying all of this, everything that we do, these are tests and trials and tribulations from Allah subhanaw taala. Who are the ones who are successful. Number one, they they're the ones who remember Allah subhanaw taala.

00:15:42 --> 00:15:43

And so they reward

00:15:44 --> 00:15:46

like a person who worships Allah.

00:15:48 --> 00:16:01

When Allah Subhana Allah, that we know that a person, the deed is also the deed is different. The reward is different. Some people, they have axon and their actions in their worship.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:19

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he described our lesson, when he was asked by Gibreel. And we went through that hadith before, what is SN? He says, and that would Allah Kanika Tara, who,

00:16:20 --> 00:16:22

for LM tap into Rahu, for a New Yorker,

00:16:24 --> 00:16:42

and that would Allah Nicotero LM tap into Rahu for a new era, that you worship Allah as if you can see him. And if you can't see him, then he can see you. In other words, your act of worship. Notice that the prophets of Allah mentioned seeing,

00:16:43 --> 00:16:45

because seeing something

00:16:46 --> 00:16:49

is different than being promised something.

00:16:50 --> 00:17:00

You know, when you promise something, and then you don't know that you haven't really seen it yet. It's different than when you see it. As soon as you see something.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:19

It's different. When you act when you do your work. When you do your job, when somebody promises you something, and you don't know if you're gonna get it, or you know, you don't. But as soon as you see it, you see the goal already, you're the acts that you do, what happens, you're not tired anymore.

00:17:21 --> 00:17:45

Because you know, you're gonna get it. You know, you can see with your very own eyes already, you've already experienced it with your very own eyes. Just like there are some there are certain things that people who don't know, people who are like your children right now, you know, their children's kids, they don't know what life is all about. Right? They don't know what life is all about. And so they spend their time doing what?

00:17:46 --> 00:17:56

Playing. Right now all of us here at this age, we're like, Man, if I was younger, if I could go back in time, what are some of the things you wouldn't do?

00:17:58 --> 00:18:20

What are some of the things you wouldn't do? Like me, I wouldn't waste all my time on so many things. There are so many things like like I did. So hard. I wish I didn't do them. Like sometimes we're embarrassed that we waste our time on things like that, on some of those things. If we that we could have done like, because what we know now. So what is it that we know now?

00:18:22 --> 00:19:11

It's things that we've experienced, we see with our very own eyes, we already know. And so those who is faith with iman is high in their son, they worship Allah subhanho wa Taala in the state in which their faith is high to the point where excess of it see as if they're already seeing everything. They everything that they're doing. Like like right now before they say when you're a kid, right? You know, like you don't want to do your homework, you don't want to go to school and so forth. And then you see, now you see hey, you know what, if I would have gone to school, I would have tried hard there maybe I would have had, you know my PhD by now. At this time I would we have memorized

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

the whole Quran already. There's so many things that you can do you think about it. But if you were to know what you know now and you weren't able to go back,

00:19:21 --> 00:19:23

how would you behave?

00:19:25 --> 00:19:26

How would you behave?

00:19:27 --> 00:19:31

You will behave differently and would it be hard for you to do some of those things?

00:19:33 --> 00:19:52

No, it wouldn't be hard for you. Because you're like, you know what, it's I know what's there. I know what's ahead. That's why I know what's ahead. This is worth it. This is worth it. Even though I'm a little bit tired, you know, I'm still gonna go here, go to school and that's the dunya but for the people of the era.

00:19:53 --> 00:19:56

They worship Allah as if they could see him

00:19:57 --> 00:19:58

because what is

00:20:00 --> 00:20:02

What is the greatest pleasure

00:20:04 --> 00:20:06

that a person gets

00:20:07 --> 00:20:08

in Jannah?

00:20:10 --> 00:20:12

To see Allah subhanaw taala

00:20:13 --> 00:20:15

the test the greatest pleasure.

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

So you worship Allah.

00:20:20 --> 00:20:22

You worship Allah,

00:20:23 --> 00:20:30

as if you can see him as if you were there on the day, it's Friday and Allah has calling people to Jana.

00:20:32 --> 00:20:35

Calling people's agenda and you're there and Jana.

00:20:37 --> 00:20:39

And it's like there's a marketplace where people gather.

00:20:40 --> 00:20:46

And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will give the believers the best, the greatest blessing

00:20:47 --> 00:20:48


00:20:49 --> 00:20:50

And that's to see Allah

00:20:51 --> 00:20:52

Allahu Akbar.

00:20:54 --> 00:20:57

And then Jana, you can have whatever you want.

00:20:58 --> 00:21:01

In Jana, there'll be no more.

00:21:03 --> 00:21:04

No more tiredness.

00:21:06 --> 00:21:07

No more hunger.

00:21:08 --> 00:21:10

No more sleepiness.

00:21:11 --> 00:21:19

It's just, there's no more hatred, envy. You might be praying, you're like, Allahu Akbar, I'm praying.

00:21:20 --> 00:21:41

I finished pray I go home. And like, you know, my wife, man, you know, she's gonna say this, and that I know, I know how she is right? You're like, super Hannah, if I could go home, and she just smiles at me all the time. Always happy.

00:21:43 --> 00:21:44

When is that?

00:21:45 --> 00:21:46

That's in Jana.

00:21:48 --> 00:21:48


00:21:50 --> 00:21:51

if you have this life.

00:21:53 --> 00:22:02

But in general, that's always the case. If your family will return home, you come back and

00:22:03 --> 00:22:22

your wife says to you, honey, you look a lot more handsome than you were before he left. And then you look at Earth and you also you also everybody looks better. And, and so in general, you think about Jana and you think about the hereafter. Those who have Ersan.

00:22:23 --> 00:22:29

When they're worshipping Allah, Allah says, if they see what's already there ahead of them.

00:22:30 --> 00:22:49

Because that's what's going to happen and you know, when you see Allah, and when you're in Jannah, then when you when you as you can see Allah, as if you can see Allah, you are in a state of what

00:22:50 --> 00:23:03

instead of hope for hope for happiness for Ghana, Catarratto LM Contura have a new year aka. But if you can't see him, then Allah can see you. What does that also mean?

00:23:06 --> 00:23:08

Your faith is high, but also one

00:23:10 --> 00:23:14

that you're always conscious of Allah. He don't want to do anything that's displeasing to Allah.

00:23:15 --> 00:23:20

If Allah is watching you all the time. If you know Allah can see you, what do you do?

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

If you commit a sin, what do you do?

00:23:25 --> 00:23:28

Yeah, Allah. Ya Allah forgive me.

00:23:30 --> 00:23:33

So in your prayer, you're asking Allah for forgiveness.

00:23:34 --> 00:23:36

Because you know, Allah can see you.

00:23:38 --> 00:23:59

And you remember all the bad things that you did, and you ask forgiveness. And you change, because Allah can see you at all times. So as if you can see Allah And if Allah or if Allah sees you, can Nicotra who fell into control in New York, if you're in a state where you're conscious of Allah all the time.

00:24:00 --> 00:24:01

That's the state of ESA.

00:24:02 --> 00:24:11

And that's the highest level. Those who have assets that's the that's the highest level of ima and that's, you know, a faith.

00:24:12 --> 00:24:15

So that's the level that you want to reach.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:18

But of course, our Eman goes up and down.

00:24:20 --> 00:24:31

Just like our deeds increase, in decrease, you get less than you get more our faith. Our Iman also goes up and down.

00:24:33 --> 00:24:50

It also goes up and down. But does it mean that we don't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala No, because our faith isn't Iman isn't just stable, Iman goes up with good deeds. And that's why Allah Subhana Allah mentions about even Prophet Ibrahim

00:24:52 --> 00:24:57

Ibrahim oran br uniqa If to heal Mota.

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

And remember when Abraham said

00:25:00 --> 00:25:04

added Nikkei for Tokyo Motor Show me how do you revive the dead?

00:25:05 --> 00:25:08

Oh Allah show me how do you revive the dead?

00:25:09 --> 00:25:25

Carla, our two men. He said Do you not believe? Allah Bella? He says yes no I do believe while I kill near coma in pile B, I just want my heart to be

00:25:27 --> 00:25:42

stable. In other words, my heart to be at ease. I just want to be my heart to be at ease. I believe I know that you can you can raise the dead back to life. But seeing is not like just believe what you see it's different.

00:25:46 --> 00:25:47

It's different.

00:25:48 --> 00:26:02

To see it is a different level than to Yeah, you believe yes, I know that a lot of how do I like him? But to see it, it's a different different matter. And that's why every single time

00:26:03 --> 00:26:14

we see some of the signs of the Day of Judgment, what should it do to us? What should it do for us? When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:26:15 --> 00:26:17

that there will come a time in which

00:26:19 --> 00:26:25

you will see shepherds barefooted shepherds, barely clothed, naked,

00:26:26 --> 00:26:27


00:26:29 --> 00:26:31

destitute, poor,

00:26:32 --> 00:26:34

competing in building tall buildings.

00:26:37 --> 00:26:41

When you see that, they know that the hour is near.

00:26:42 --> 00:26:48

When before you see all the building of the tower, people building these tall towers and the desert

00:26:50 --> 00:26:54

tall skyscrapers in the desert. Did you not believe in the Hadith?

00:26:56 --> 00:26:57

Yeah, we believe we all believe

00:26:59 --> 00:27:04

Hamdulillah we know the hadith is authentic. We believe it. But then when you see it.

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

It has a different effect on you.

00:27:11 --> 00:27:43

And so the faith a person has faith in Allah subhanho wa taala. To me sometimes your Eman goes up and down. When you see miracles or when you do good deeds, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah strengthens your faith. So it goes up and it goes down. And so from this is we know that the verse that our Eman our faith isn't just like, Okay, I have you been either you believe or you don't know. So when Prophet Abraham when he asked, Did he not believe? No, he believed

00:27:44 --> 00:27:46

that he had faith, he had Eman.

00:27:47 --> 00:28:02

But he wanted more. He wanted more certainty. In other words, he just wanted to strength strength in his email. He believed, but when you see something, oh, that's how it's done.

00:28:04 --> 00:28:07

And that's why like I said, I said before, it's like, one of the miracles

00:28:08 --> 00:28:11

is that every everything in our body,

00:28:12 --> 00:28:15

every, whatever we get whatever we do,

00:28:16 --> 00:28:22

our bodies, in the DNA and in the blood, it records everything.

00:28:25 --> 00:28:27

Even doctor's note records everything.

00:28:28 --> 00:28:35

When I told you they take a piece of blood, and they know everything about what sicknesses that afflicted you, even when you were young,

00:28:37 --> 00:28:49

because I remember looking at mine a long time. And then they see they said, when you were a kid, you had this. And you had that you had this.

00:28:50 --> 00:28:55

And they said this is you had something with your lungs. And then they said this, like

00:28:57 --> 00:28:59

my mother, my father don't even know

00:29:02 --> 00:29:04

that I had my body

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

is telling them this is what I had.

00:29:10 --> 00:29:16

My body kept a record of every sickness I had.

00:29:17 --> 00:29:27

And I remember looking at the record like whoa, this that that they have all like with me and that you know, when they take your blood and they test everything. All of this when you were a kid

00:29:29 --> 00:29:36

and you know when you were in Vietnam, and these are like, Oh, you had this shot and that shot on this that. Like

00:29:37 --> 00:29:39

they weren't there to see the shots.

00:29:40 --> 00:29:42

They weren't there when I was sick.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:52

They weren't there. When some of the things happened to me happened to me. And then they could see they could tell me why

00:29:55 --> 00:29:57

my body recorded everything.

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

That's how amazing a locker

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

He does

00:30:02 --> 00:30:05

everything that you do. Your body records it.

00:30:07 --> 00:30:10

Such an amazing how can you not believe in Allah

00:30:13 --> 00:30:24

Subhana Allah. And so we were just talking with talking about the faith a person's faith and Eman goes up and down.

00:30:25 --> 00:30:25


00:30:27 --> 00:30:35

our Eman also, as I mentioned, if we the more deeds we do, the more good deeds it rises.

00:30:36 --> 00:30:55

And when we commit sins, then a human goes down also. And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions over and over again in the Quran we have so many verses, or so many verses that for those who don't believe that Iman goes up and down, like you're not really living

00:30:56 --> 00:30:59

because there are some times in which you wake up

00:31:00 --> 00:31:03

and it's very easy for you to get up for the hygiene.

00:31:04 --> 00:31:08

Get up and you pray to hygiene and you feel that also in Ramadan.

00:31:10 --> 00:31:32

Right you feel you you feel a difference in Ramadan also. Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, well Athena Ted ozada home Houda tell him taco well Athena todo those who are guided, zada home, who the Allah Subhana Allah to increase them and guidance, meaning you're on the truth that Allah Subhan strengthens your guidance, strength and your Eman.

00:31:36 --> 00:32:01

Loss of hugging Idina Armadyl Well, yes, daddy Lilina Anna Imana. And and those who believe their Eman increases for a Mullah Dena Armineh for that Tomiyama. As for those who believe, then they're a man increases. So this is an you might say, well, this isn't not a given. Yes, but But there are some people who think that Eman

00:32:03 --> 00:32:04

is just

00:32:06 --> 00:32:07

it's just the same for everybody.

00:32:09 --> 00:32:11

And you might say, well, who are they?

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

Who are they?

00:32:15 --> 00:32:22

I'm not talking about the Moto G or Tesla and people for they are people that live with us as Muslims.

00:32:24 --> 00:32:40

Even though they don't call, they don't say they don't know anything about these people. But they have the same belief. Who are they? They are the ones who tell you or who you tell them say Brother. You see the brother in the gas station.

00:32:41 --> 00:32:45

They say Brother, you can't be selling alcohol like this.

00:32:46 --> 00:32:57

It's not it's not permissible. Right? Because there's some brothers who have like these corner stores. And the biggest profit that they get is what why are they open 24 hours

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

they're selling liquor. They're just selling them and then people coming to them that are buying and you see like, brother, he's a Muslim. You know, he's a Muslim. You tell him probably don't you shouldn't do this. It's not it's not permissible. What does he say?

00:33:16 --> 00:33:18

Well, my brother imagines Yeah.

00:33:22 --> 00:33:24

Brother Brother Eman is here. Yeah,

00:33:25 --> 00:33:32

Eman is here. Yeah, it was lovely man is here. And they pointed the legs. That's where the bond is. Yeah, Allah.

00:33:34 --> 00:33:38

That's where the man is. What are they trying to say? What are they trying to tell you?

00:33:41 --> 00:33:43

Like Eman has nothing to do with actions.

00:33:46 --> 00:33:48

Has nothing to do with actions.

00:33:49 --> 00:33:54

I am still Muslim. I believe it doesn't matter what I do.

00:33:55 --> 00:34:10

In other email, there's an increase a decrease in no Eman is here. Like a man is here. Yes, Iman is there. But what they're trying to say he tells you is that all these actions don't really matter. Like yeah, I know. But I'm still a Muslim.

00:34:11 --> 00:34:26

Doesn't really matter. No, it does matter. Your Iman increases with good deeds. And when you commit sins, it decreases. And there are some people who say that Eman is here, but they have their actions contradicted.

00:34:27 --> 00:34:31

Their actions contradicted so they don't really have EMA.

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

Like there are some people

00:34:36 --> 00:34:37

there are some people who

00:34:38 --> 00:34:41

believe they say that they're Muslims.

00:34:42 --> 00:34:45

But sometimes they sell their Deen

00:34:47 --> 00:34:54

they sell their Deen by doing what by doing things that contradict Iman and faith.

00:34:55 --> 00:34:57

There are certain things we know are haram

00:34:59 --> 00:34:59

that we know are not

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


00:35:02 --> 00:35:05

right, that we know are not permissible in Islam.

00:35:06 --> 00:35:28

But then you're going to go and celebrate those sins, that Allah subhanaw taala. detests, and Allah punish the people for and you say it's okay. And you support them in their deeds and their sins, and other In other words, and also you, you celebrate their sins.

00:35:29 --> 00:35:31

You celebrate their sins.

00:35:32 --> 00:35:33


00:35:35 --> 00:35:37

Because you've sold your dean

00:35:39 --> 00:35:42

for status for money for position.

00:35:44 --> 00:35:46

The only thing you have is just your name.

00:35:48 --> 00:35:51

But in terms of your actions, it contradicts it.

00:35:52 --> 00:35:55

So you're promoting things that Allah dislikes

00:35:56 --> 00:36:13

and you're helping people who come who are against Allah subhanho wa Taala and the deen of Allah subhana wa Tada. There's some things that are very, very clear. There are some things of course, this is this is where the trials and tribulations come in

00:36:15 --> 00:36:15

the Phaeton

00:36:16 --> 00:36:18

when the faith and comes

00:36:19 --> 00:36:23

you have to be strong. You have to strengthen your Eman.

00:36:24 --> 00:36:30

Why, because those who don't have strong Eman, they will not be able to see the truth.

00:36:32 --> 00:36:34

And they will sell their gene

00:36:35 --> 00:36:43

the otter limited dunya for just a fleeting pleasure of this worldly life. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:36:45 --> 00:36:51

he said by the rubella amalfitana What is this a bad aerobill Amal fitna

00:36:53 --> 00:36:57

meaning while you still can.

00:36:58 --> 00:37:03

Do as much good deeds as you can, before the fitna comes

00:37:04 --> 00:37:07

because when the fitna comes, what's how's it going to affect you?

00:37:09 --> 00:37:12

If you don't have strong faith and strong Eman, what's going to happen?

00:37:14 --> 00:37:26

When the fitna comes you won't be able to distinguish good and bad a person will wake up in the morning as a Muslim in the afternoon he is a non Muslim, and a person will go to sleep as a Muslim in the morning his anonymously.

00:37:28 --> 00:37:38

EBT rodina will be out of them in a dunya the Phaeton will come Cafe Thai Leyland Muslim, just like sections of the darkness of the night that hit you.

00:37:40 --> 00:37:43

You can't see good from bad and right from wrong.

00:37:45 --> 00:38:02

And so you'll see some people because they don't have the strong foundation and knowledge. And you can only ask Allah for guidance, but you'll see them they fall by the wayside. I LFL fit that is

00:38:03 --> 00:38:05

when the Pfitzner comes

00:38:06 --> 00:38:11

then they fall why why did they fall

00:38:13 --> 00:38:21

because of their faith, their Eman and that's why when you're able when you're awake, when you're you're able right now.

00:38:23 --> 00:38:27

When you have the opportunity to come to the masjid come to the masjid

00:38:29 --> 00:38:34

one or 727 Choose the 27

00:38:36 --> 00:38:45

because the fitna can come at any time not only that, not only is a fitna can come but ALLAH SubhanA life can destroy everything in one moment.

00:38:48 --> 00:38:49

Especially in the west coast here.

00:38:50 --> 00:38:59

If Allah subhanho wa Taala wills all of this can be underwater in the next next hour. May Allah protect us

00:39:00 --> 00:39:08

and so that's why you never know. So that's why when you have an opportunity to do good deeds

00:39:09 --> 00:39:15

and the reason why we're mentioning here is because the prophets of Allah Allah He also said, so that to Gemma Alpha Goldman saw that in further

00:39:16 --> 00:39:20

praying and congregation is better than praying by yourself.

00:39:21 --> 00:39:27

One of the things that will help you is to come together and trials and tribulations in times of difficulties.

00:39:28 --> 00:39:35

You know, whose faces are that you can depend on sha Allah, you can depend on those people who are in the masjid at the time

00:39:37 --> 00:39:38

and each time

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

because those are the old prayers that will not fit the monastic code is very difficult. You see the brothers had a shot and so like you need the you need you need to be with good brother depending on them. Those are the people come pray in the masjid. Not only is the reward very great.

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

But in sha

00:40:00 --> 00:40:05

Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will strengthen your faith and your iman will go up.

00:40:06 --> 00:40:11

And Allah subhanho wa Taala will make it to the point where you want to come to the masjid.

00:40:12 --> 00:40:31

You don't want to pray at home. And it's not the same when you pray at home and you miss home, when you miss praying at home, it's like losing your money. Some people you know the some of the scholars or before when they would miss a prayer, the mustard you could see it in their faces, as if they lost all of their money.

00:40:32 --> 00:40:38

As if they lost all of their money, just one prayer, as if they lost all of their money.

00:40:39 --> 00:40:56

And so, the reward is very, very great, especially in the morning, darkness in the morning, and the darkness of the night. The hypocrites don't come and also that's the time in which Allah will give you know, on the Day of Judgment,

00:40:57 --> 00:41:00

give glad tidings to those

00:41:01 --> 00:41:18

who go to the fajr prayer and a short prayer because they will have more on the Day of Judgment that Allah Subhana Allah give them when it's dark for everybody else. And so the not only that the reward is also forgiveness

00:41:19 --> 00:41:23

Subhanallah one and what's another reward that a person gets when they come pray Dumas

00:41:26 --> 00:41:34

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, he the aminal imam for a middle. When the Imam says I mean and say I mean

00:41:36 --> 00:41:43

because whoever's I mean coincides with the I mean, of the angels, all his previous sins will be forgiven.

00:41:44 --> 00:41:48

You don't get that when you pray and hope

00:41:49 --> 00:41:56

and pray the masjid, every rock. Every time you say I mean you have an opportunity to have all your sins be forgiven for

00:41:57 --> 00:41:58


00:41:59 --> 00:42:02

When you come to the masjid, the reward

00:42:04 --> 00:42:06

is so great.

00:42:08 --> 00:42:12

Because it is, it is the house of Allah subhanaw taala

00:42:13 --> 00:42:27

that when your heart is attached to the masjid, Allah will shade you on the day of judgment on the day in which there'll be no shade except for the shade of Allah. Right amongst them is Roger in Palo Alto. My laughable massage

00:42:28 --> 00:42:54

has a person whose heart is connected to the masjid that they're always there. And so anytime you have made you feel lazy think about all the other the reward. And I know like mashallah the brothers here, we always see your faces in the massage. It's those are up there in sha Allah, make sure you come to the masjid. And those are here, whenever you feel lazy. Just think about some of these Hadith

00:42:55 --> 00:43:24

not only 27 Right, but there's so much more reward. And so we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept her medicine to give us the best of this world in the Hereafter. And again, we'll continue with some some other issues related to this hadith. So just want to mention this because when the prophets a lot in a subset salata, Jamar of the better than the better here is it's different for everybody

00:43:25 --> 00:43:28

and some people the reward is very great

00:43:29 --> 00:43:35

and the loss of bandwidth increases for them even more. Not everybody is the same

00:43:36 --> 00:43:48

not everybody is the same and that's why the Jana has also not one level and so we ask Allah subhanaw taala for the highest level and Paradise was Salah al na vida Mohammed who Allah He was anybody have any questions

00:43:51 --> 00:43:54

Charlo will continue next week with

00:43:55 --> 00:44:00

the continuation of the Bob the Hadith next, the next idea we will be covering also

00:44:02 --> 00:44:27

is a similar Hadith but there are other rewards for reward for walking to the masjid. And do I that you say and you know that and the reward of waiting in the masjid and so there's a lot more reward each other in relation to the to come into the masjid so we'll continue with with that with armed into that camp next week Inshallah, with more Hadith about congregational prayer
