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

mighty brothers and sisters in Islam. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:44--> 00:01:24

How have you all been hamdulillah it's great. Firstly, I would like to praise and thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for giving me this opportunity to be with you all he in Sri Lanka. This is my first trip my first visit to Sri Lanka and hamdulillah I have been, you know, seen a lot of wonderful things already. The brothers have been really hospitable to me hamdulillah and it's just been really amazing experience so far. hambre in one day, I've learnt a lot already. I've got another three more days to go and I hope I'll learn a bit more in sha Allah. Also, we should always praise and thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for everything that he has given us. Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:24--> 00:01:44

has given you this life, this gift of this life. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you this life to be amongst the aroma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Isn't this a great Yama? Isn't this a great blessing that He has given you this Islam to be in the Omaha masala

00:01:45--> 00:01:57

out of the 7 billion people in this world. Allah subhanaw taala has chosen you. He has chosen me to tread the path of La ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, that is a great,

00:01:58--> 00:02:38

a great blessing that Allah subhanaw taala has given each and every one of us. How many of us are really appreciating this gift that Allah has given us? How many of us are really treading the path of La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, how many of us are literally going through that light that Allah subhanaw taala has given us at the end of that tunnel? How many of us are reaching it? While we just named a Muslim? Just because my name is Abdullah Muslim? Or is it because that you are following the deen how Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam followed it? That is the question that we need to ask ourselves. Are we following this great religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala? Are we do

00:02:38--> 00:02:57

we have those signs? Do we live in the life of that perfect worshipper of that perfect believer? That is a question that you and I need to ask ourselves. Hence the topic today is the life and science of the perfect worshipper or the perfect believer in Allah soprano without

00:02:59--> 00:03:02

the Allahu Allah he narrates a very beautiful heading.

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

He says one day, we were sitting with Hamas and Allahu Allah Salah, and the companions were there as well, we were sitting down. Suddenly, a man entered the room, a man came, this man was wearing beautiful clothes, and thick black hair.

00:03:20--> 00:04:01

And we've never seen it before. We've never seen this man before. Usually when you don't see a person in the same area in the same locality, because they're under the law, and pretty much knew everyone. But he's never seen this man. So he thought he must be a traveler coming to them. But he said that he had no traces of a traveler on him. You know, usually a traveler in the desert. I mean, today we have the nice car and we have the a condition and we you know, go to places that time that we're traveling on camel, that we're traveling on horseback, they would get dusty. So he had no traces of a traveler on him at all. He came in he sat down next to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. He

00:04:01--> 00:04:27

put his knees on the knees of Rasul Allah for a long while. And he asked a couple of questions. He asked a few questions. He said the first question, what is Islam? What is Islam? Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied, that Islam is the five pillars to the Shahada to believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to believe the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his slave and His Messenger.

00:04:28--> 00:04:32

Also what he was Salah was the Moto moto Moto G.

00:04:33--> 00:04:44

So first the Salah, for example, follow the five daily prayers, getting the car fast in the month of Ramadan, and head to the Hello.

00:04:45--> 00:04:46


00:04:48--> 00:04:53

the man says so Dr. You're correct, you're right. And then he said, what he's been

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

there for a long while he will suddenly mentioned the six articles of faith to believe in

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

last panel wants to believe in these angels to believe in his books, to believe in his messengers to believe in your will and to believe in a God.

00:05:12--> 00:05:16

And then the man said you correct your rights. When he asked, What is if some

00:05:18--> 00:05:22

sort of sort of lost and alone while a Muslim said and tabula haka Anika Tara

00:05:25--> 00:05:35

to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as if you are seeing him and if you cannot think that then know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is seeing you is watching.

00:05:36--> 00:05:56

later on. We also few more questions later on Rasul salam wa sallam asked the sahabas genome who this person was. They said, Allah hora Salaam, we don't know the Prophet, Allah, and the Prophet Novus. And then the three of us and alojado said and said, that was God. And he came to teach all of you about Islam.

00:05:57--> 00:06:31

What we learn from this hadith is the levels of faith, the levels of faith, the first level is to be a Muslim, to be a Muslim. That's the first level. The second level is to have that Eman, not mean. And the third level, the highest level is to have the exam. And that is a moccasin. So what does it mean to be a Muslim? All of us, we all agree to be a Muslim, we testify, we say a Chateau La ilaha illallah wa shawanna, Mohammed rasulillah. We testify, we make this oath, we make this pledge.

00:06:33--> 00:06:34

I'll give you a little scenario.

00:06:35--> 00:07:18

I'm sure all of you work. And when you first went for that interview, you had the interview with your employer, the employer told you everything about this job, he asked you a few questions, your employer was very happy with you very happy with your response, very happy with your resume. Then the employer calls you back and gave you a contract, you looked at a contract, and the employer told you to look at it carefully. Read the conditions, read the terms, read what you have to do your job and read the salary that we are going to pay. And if you agree to everything you sign at the bottom. So you close the loop, you look at everything, the salary, your job, everything is good, and you put

00:07:18--> 00:08:02

in the signature. That signature is an oath that you are giving to your employer that you are going to fulfill the obligations. You're going to do that when your employer wants you to do that's what you want to do. Right. And in exchange, your employer is going to give you a salary. So you get something in return. When we say a shadow Allah, Allah Illallah Muhammad Rasul Allah, we are signing a contract, we have made an oath to Allah subhanho wa Taala, that I am going to fulfill all the obligations of Allah subhanaw taala. And I'm going to stay away from all the prohibitions from Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is an oath that you are making. At some time in your job, you make some

00:08:02--> 00:08:34

mistakes, you're a bit lazy, sometimes you check, check in on Facebook, and a few things you do, and your employer finds out, your employer finds out. So he lets you go Okay, that's right, that next time, don't do it. Then suddenly he catches you again doing something wrong. And then he says, Look, I'm gonna give you a warning. Right? So last chance, if you don't behave yourself, if you don't do the job, you're out, you're gonna get picked up. Right? Then later on, you still do a mistake, you make another mistake and employer says, Come here. You're fired. That's it. You go We don't want you anymore.

00:08:35--> 00:09:08

Brothers and sisters, likewise in Islam. When you search through Allah, Allah, Allah should know him a little pseudo law you found that contract. When you make mistakes throughout your time. You have time to repent to Allah subhanaw taala your attention you say Allah forgive me for my shortcomings. Allah forgives. Allah forgives you, Allah forgives you, for very for time comes where you do not pray your follow up. You're completely you know, you don't pray at all. You don't give you a sucker. You run faster. Most of Ramadan and dentists approaches you what happens? You have been fired from Jenna.

00:09:09--> 00:09:14

Jenna is no longer helpful for you. unless Allah subhanaw taala forgives you in your mithya.

00:09:16--> 00:09:34

Can you imagine that when you say should Allah Allah, Allah Allah, that's the oath that you have given. That is the minimum requirements, the five obligations, the five pillars is the minimum requirements to be a Muslim. How many of us don't even do the minimum requirements? That's a question you need to ask yourself. The second level is a man.

00:09:36--> 00:10:00

A man is to be a movement is a person who does all of those obligations, but he does it with sincerity and devotion. He does it with that see that hope that love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is sincere in his actions. He takes time when he prays. He has full concentration while he prays. When it gives the guy or charity he gives it because he loves to give

00:10:00--> 00:10:26

And he knows that Allah has something big for him in return. That's why he's giving it. But to be a Muslim is to make sure you complete those obligations, you might not have that full conviction, or you might not have that force in theory, but at least you've done the action. That is to be a Muslim to be a movement is higher than that Shi t those obligations with that in hand, with a firm faith and that firm belief, that sincerity and devotion,

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

the next level is a son.

00:10:30--> 00:10:40

And his son is a level where the forehead was reached. And it is not impossible to reach it. But yes, it requires a lot of determination and dedication.

00:10:41--> 00:11:22

If someone is to do all the obligations, but do it in a manner that you are seeing the loss penalty function in that manner. I want you to imagine you're in your workplace, you're in your workplace, and you're in the machine, you know, you're trying to fix up something, you're doing the job. And then your employer comes in front of you. And you quickly straighten up and you try your best to do the job because the employer is watching you. And you're seeing him is you're seeing watching you, you try your best to make sure you do the best. Just for that little payrise just for that employer liking you more and you try your level best. That is because you're doing the action Why? Because

00:11:22--> 00:11:39

you are seeing employee in front of you right now, to be a machine to be a machine or to have the level of exam. It requires obviously a degree above that. Your employer is just an example that I'm giving, that you know that you are seeing Allah subhanaw taala

00:11:40--> 00:12:14

if you're doing an action knowing that you are seeing Allah Spano, tala is a different level is a level where your Salah will be perfect is a level where you will be extra good. It will be a level way when you give sadaqa you will not care how the amount that you are giving. We know the story of a book, the last one when you wanted to give his whole everything that he had. Why because he had a son. He had that level of exam. But it is not impossible to reach. It requires a lot of dedication. That is to be a moccasin.

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

My brothers and my sisters.

00:12:18--> 00:12:26

This is from the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam and you can find this Hadith, the second half of an hour normally the 40 hadith of Imam nawawi.

00:12:27--> 00:13:01

Now, when we say well we are Muslim, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us a few things. No Quran, for example, Laffy masala, what are these different levels, you pray your follow, you give your soccer, this is to be a most Muslim. To be a Muslim, again, is to have that determination that faith that love of Allah subhanaw taala. And to be a more sin is to worship Allah as if you are seeing him and if you cannot, they know that Allah is watching the know that Allah subhana wa Taala is watching you. Now we know throughout time

00:13:03--> 00:13:30

a person's emotion increases and decreases. We can't say a motion every time or have that level of accent every time it decreases as well. If we look through our history, the prophets were sent to different nations and tribes. They were sent to different nations. What was the reason why Los Altos sent these profits to these nations. The reason was that the man decreased so much so that they started committing,

00:13:31--> 00:13:47

they started doing the extra. So then Allah subhanho wa Taala will send another navy and then he will send another movie, and then he will send another lady, we know Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the last and final messenger and he was sent to mankind, woman

00:13:48--> 00:14:12

in love metal Allah. Allah subhanaw taala says that I have not sent you for any other reason except for the mercy to mankind to mankind, meaning after him there is no other prophets, there is no other prophets. So if our Eman is decreasing so much so that we are going into cos know that there is no other prophets to come to remind, you know,

00:14:13--> 00:14:35

his legacy is left behind and that is the Quran and the Sunnah. That is the Quran and the Sunnah. That is the person who we are supposed to follow. Being a Muslim, a true believer, to have that sign of a true movement. To have the sign of a true worshipper. You need to follow Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam you need to

00:14:36--> 00:14:49

you need to act upon what he did need to follow his footsteps. today. If you ask especially the youth, you ask them, who do you want to be like? Who do you want to imitate? Who is your idol?

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

Do you want to follow what answers you get off? I want to be like Justin Bieber. I want to be like Michael Jackson. I want to be like those one.

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

direction boy, and they have the day like that. They do the moonwalk, they do all sorts of things, crazy things. They want to be like them, they want to act like them. And that is the reality of today. That's the reality amongst the Muslims. I'm not talking about the Kufa, I'm talking about the Muslims. If you ask them, who do you want to be like, they will never say those hobbies, or most of them will take us a house. They will not say

00:15:24--> 00:15:30

where has that love gone? Where has that love gone? Where has that imitation gone? The image imitating

00:15:32--> 00:15:40

imitating the sahabas of Rasulullah sallallahu. Alexandre, that love has to be there and support and I'll tell you a little story.

00:15:41--> 00:15:46

While I was in Malaysia, I had a friend of mine. And he had family friends who lived in Malaysia.

00:15:48--> 00:16:03

And his family friend, they had a newborn son. So they invited him and my friend told me to come along because I had a car he didn't have a car is a big fossil, he went. So we went to this place. We went to the house and I lost control of less than with a baby boy.

00:16:04--> 00:16:07

So we saw the baby boy, we had a good time we ate everything was good.

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

So we asked the Father, what did you name him?

00:16:11--> 00:16:44

And just for your information, this was an Indian family. And you'll know why I say Indian family. We asked, What did you name your son? So he said we named our son Salma. an alpha channel, what an amazing name. I was like brilliant, that's beautiful, after salmonella faricy, a great Sahaba a Sahaba. And I'm thinking this a Sahaba through throat or Susana Salaam, about the trench to build the trench for the Battle of the trench Battle of thunder and GG that's upon Allah, Allah. Allah gave Islam and the Muslim victory now for an amazing name.

00:16:45--> 00:17:15

And then my friends hold that asks the father of the child, why did you name him? What was the reason? And he said, I love Hong Kong. I love his movies. I love Bollywood. And he was my favorite actor. My wife loves you as well. And so karnala all that good. 30 my mind just went away. There is a problem. That's the issue. When we start imitating others, when we start imitating others, there is really going to follow that perfect believer God

00:17:16--> 00:17:19

where has a perfectly to come? Where is he teaching his children?

00:17:20--> 00:17:46

So this is something we need to understand and have that love of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, we all play we love Allah correct. If I ask each and every one of you a Christian, do you love Allah? Everyone will say You're crazy. We all love Allah will put a hand up we all love Allah subhanaw taala but how can we gain that love of Allah? I love you love us as well. But how can we gain that love? Allah Allah says, in content of a boon Allah.

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

Allah, Allah.

00:17:51--> 00:17:51


00:17:53--> 00:18:10

Allah, Allah says, Allah Salallahu alaihe salam so the people if they say that they love Allah, if you live in Las panatela safaree Rooney, then select Mohammed Salallahu alaihe salam, if you follow me, you'll be welcome Allah. Allah subhanaw taala will love you

00:18:13--> 00:18:40

and not just love you. He will forgive you your sin. Will long before Rahim. Allah is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. What more do we want? If Allah loves us today, the chef the heart tray, he talks about the level of love. And He even told us that if Allah loves you, what more do we want? That is what we want. That's the ultimate goal to make a Les Paul teller love us and the way we do that is we follow the footsteps of

00:18:41--> 00:18:53

Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. That is a true believer, that is a true worshipper. That is a sign of a true believer and a true worship, to follow the footsteps of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:18:54--> 00:19:07

if we can do that alone, love us. And what more do we want? Because we know when Allah loves us, what will he give us? He will give us journey. He will never, he will never tell a person whom he loves to go to Germany.

00:19:08--> 00:19:13

But he will bring them and he will take them to Germany. That is our ultimate goal.

00:19:14--> 00:19:25

My beloved brothers and my sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us signs in the Quran of the perfect, the perfect worship.

00:19:26--> 00:19:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us in the beautiful Surah Surah noon

00:19:32--> 00:19:34

well lots of kind of what Allah He says in the Quran

00:19:36--> 00:19:39

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


00:20:45--> 00:21:01

I am one through 11 of the surah. Allah subhanho wa Taala describes to us the perfect belief, the perfect believer, Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says, are the moon, that successful are those who are the believers who are the

00:21:05--> 00:21:15

number one and Who are they? They are those who pray, they have shoe. They have devotion. They have that love and that fear of a loss of kindness.

00:21:17--> 00:21:24

That is a sign number one of the perfect meaning, the perfect worshiper, the perfect believer. What is this Shu

00:21:26--> 00:21:31

Rahim Allah He mentions. He says, the horseshoe of true faith

00:21:32--> 00:21:53

is when the heart feels away and humble before the greatness and glory of Allah subhanho wa Taala and is filled with all fee China's love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and recognizes and since the issue of the heart is then transferred to the body that is crucial in

00:21:55--> 00:21:55

this beautiful

00:21:57--> 00:21:59

how do we develop is crucial in our Salah.

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

Devotion that love how can we develop a future in our Salah. Now, if you're aware of tomorrow as you know we have the premix perfect course coming up and I don't want to give a lot of other way but I will give some bits and pieces in Sharla about the Fufu insula and it's something very important that we need to understand how we can develop that tissue in our Salah

00:22:23--> 00:22:40

number one, prepare yourself. Prepare yourself for follow. For example, take your time when you're doing will do as soon as your watch beats for Salah as soon as your yo yo your phone. Good yeah then you know Salah is in the time of Salah is in.

00:22:42--> 00:22:49

Take out all the ways of the world. Go to the bathroom, go to the window area, make your will do nicely for a time.

00:22:50--> 00:22:54

When you prepare yourself properly, you had that issue.

00:22:55--> 00:23:10

A time when you're making will do wash your hands properly your face properly. Make law after you will do go to your follow up very nicely. That is all preparation for it. A lot of us what we do is we wake up 10 minutes before sunrise

00:23:11--> 00:23:19

and we go to the wooded area and we quickly wash ourselves we don't prepare for ourselves properly for Salah. If we do this, how can we develop that's

00:23:20--> 00:24:04

number one. Number two time. Make sure that you pray your follow on time. Do not delay. When you pray your follow on time you develop that devotion that will show in your Salah because you have that time to pray, you had that time to pray. As soon as Salah time comes, all the other worries has gone your focus is on the last panel. That is where your focus lies. You go to the masjid or if you're at work you go to your prayer place and you put them masala and we pray US alone time. That is how you develop your show because you gain the importance of Salah over worldly matters. That is how you develop. Number three,

00:24:05--> 00:24:06

clean the mind.

00:24:07--> 00:24:47

When you're in your follow make sure you are concentrating on your follow. Do not focus on any worldly things. Because in Salah you are talking to who you are talking to your Creator, you are talking to the person who has given you sustenance. You are talking to the person who has created you as a believer. That's who you're talking to. So why is it when you are talking to Allah subhanho wa Taala we think of the worldly matters and Cipolla. It's amazing how the shavon works. As soon as you go to follow your Salah what you start thinking about your work, you start thinking oh my wife is waiting for me. I gotta go home. You start thinking about all of these things. My children are

00:24:47--> 00:25:00

waiting for me shaitan is playing with your mind. That is the time where you clear your mind and focus on love. So kind of what's our focus in the world what you are saying. That's number three. Number four, remember

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching you. Remember that Allah is watching you, that is the level of their son. Remember that? If you know that Allah is watching you and remember the time when your work and your employer is around or the camera is there, what do you do, you try your best to do the best. You try your best to make sure your job is perfect. Just for that extra game, your boss will like you. So remember that your follow up to your boss Who's your boss will last and Allah created you, the one who will give you either general Johanna, the one who gave you this or on the one who gave us

00:25:34--> 00:26:15

He is the one that we should be focusing on. He's the one that we should think that he's watching us. That's true. He's He knows everything that we do. He knows what's in our hearts. And remember, get constantly in your Salah when you're remembering your depth. Your prayer automatically will be perfect. Because why you might die tonight you might die tomorrow. When you think of death. You will think that this Salah is the last and final follow. And for that reason, you will pray perfectly imagine you go to the hospital, you've got some problems, and your doctor tells you you've only got two days to live house perfectly you Salahi how perfect we'll use a lobby after that. That's a

00:26:15--> 00:26:28

Christian you need to ask yourself, know that death can happen at any moment. I had a cousin who was 16 years old and she passed away 16 year old cousin and she passed away. We death doesn't have a time limit and he can come at any moment.

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

Number six.

00:26:33--> 00:26:34

Make a little blind you'll follow when you make law constantly, you have that devotion, you have that field, you have that issue number six, variety. Don't make your solid mechanical. You know every time we pray a follow up and we always recite the same song.

00:27:52--> 00:28:08

And we do this every time we do this every time we don't even think about it automatically. Now lips that sort of comes because it's been so mechanical these days. Have a variety choose different students in your suit to make different law. That's how you will not make your salaat mechanical and you have that for sure.

00:28:10--> 00:28:44

Remove the distractions if you're praying and the carpet is distracting you don't pray on the carpet. If you're praying and you can smell the food on my special chicken is cooking and you're praying and you're hungry What is that for sure gonna go the food's gonna go into meal so do not pray when you're hungry or do not pray when there's food out.

to how good you are focusing only on the last panel tala you're focusing on him correct you're praying alone at night no one is watching. That's how you develop them and if you can do that in the head you can do that in every other Salah inshallah we'll talk number two what levena humani love we model you don't mean is a person who does not have that guilt or is not Tokyo or bad. That is a person who stays away from it. And most popular safe. Yeah, you will arena Mm hmm. Okay. filomeno done in Nevada, de la la, la la, la la

00:29:23--> 00:29:27

la la si matin. *ery como la ilaha

00:29:28--> 00:29:59

illa. Allah mentions a beautifully in this idea that we need to stay away from assumptions, assuming things. If we see someone doing something, we assume something else. But the reality is, it's not that at all. Now, I'm had that experience. I was in my university. A lot of the university students are not married. But I was an exception. I was married. And while I was there, I was sitting with my wife who was studying together. There were a few buildings in the corner watching and look to look at these Westerners. But these Westerners, they think they can come here, they can flirt with girls, they can sit with whoever they want, you know, and they start spraying this room.

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

This guy, so called Abdullah is sitting with a with a girl and they're studying together. When I found out about this, I went to them. And I said, Brother, do you want me to carry a science in that I'm married to this woman? So assumptions is very bad. And my wife also cooked it a lot. Why is always with this boy? Who is this person? My wife's like, do I have to carry a marriage certificate everywhere I go. Danny, do not assume bad things. When you see something, always think of something good. So don't spy on each other. A lot of people don't want to see a person doing something wrong so they can spread the news. Do you know backbiting backbiting? Allahu Akbar, we know it's a major

00:30:35--> 00:30:37

sin. Allah subhanaw taala tells us

00:30:38--> 00:30:49

have emphasized so much He said, If you tell the truth about a person, but he doesn't like it that's backbiting. And if you lie about him that slandering, you can imagine the gravity of that.

00:30:50--> 00:31:10

And I was part of a phase where your liquidity Lumosity lomasa whale is what Firstly, upon those roles, those also placed in profile to those who backbite and not others, you know, mocking means or just a shadow on your face was the shadow a person is working you don't like him you're talking to a friend and like, it is

00:31:11--> 00:31:14

just a shadow is also part of humans and

00:31:15--> 00:31:23

that is something we need to understand. Also, my brothers and my sisters, Allah subhanaw taala he says, When Latina homeless,

00:31:25--> 00:32:03

they are those the woman or those who give their soccer, the kids a charity, and they keep it with submission, they give it with devotion, that is a person who is a true believer a true and charity something very hard sometimes, when you're giving charity in your mind, you're thinking my money is getting less and less and less. That's what you have in your mind. But the reality is Allah Allah will increase your wealth number one, number two, he will give you more internal inshallah which are sometimes we take it literally, you know, we are also Salah mentioned gift from your right hand in your left hand of the note. So we don't put a hand on his hand. No, it means that you give him in

00:32:03--> 00:32:22

secret. No one else knows how much you've given. If you can do something like that, that is sincerely that is a true believer doesn't mean that you can't give that charity in front of people. No, it means to encourage others. That's perfect. But the best charity is when you are giving secret. That's the best that you can do something like that. That is a sign of a true believer.

00:32:23--> 00:33:03

Also wallerian only for routine halfmoon. Last counselor says those who got their private cause those who got themselves I you know from from the pleasures of this life, and what is that the women, the women to the men. And for those of you who can God your private parts, they are they have that sign of a true believer. And we know the story of Yusuf Ali Salam in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned if he did not guide you so he would have fallen into the trap. So we are human beings we are men were created in such a way that desires out there and so much so it is something very hard to do to stop yourself. Allah also saw Selim says that a person who be under the shade of

00:33:03--> 00:33:17

the last panel tala is when he is approached by a young beautiful woman who has status and she says to you do whatever you want with me and you say I feel a loss of control. It's very hard to do. But if you can do that last part, Allah will give you shade in your will.

00:33:19--> 00:33:26

So that is something we need to understand and be wary of that a true believers a person who God's insult

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


00:33:29--> 00:33:32

a last part Allah says Allah Dinelli man, it was

00:33:33--> 00:34:12

a person who is interested and he keeps that trust and he and he keeps his promise. We know the sounds of a hypocrite. Also, Sam tells us there are three signs of a hypocrite. What are they a person who speaks and he lies, a person who have a promises made and he breaks his promise. And a person who is interested in something he breaks that trust? Do you not be a hypocrite? We know where hypocrites are gonna go? Where are they gonna go? Kill us Philomena now they are the people who will be the lowest grade of hellfire. So a person who is entrusted with something, make sure you keep that trust. So let's say if a brother comes to you, and he says, I think I have a problem. My wife

00:34:12--> 00:34:23

and I were having some issues. But please don't tell anyone just want some solutions. What do I do? And this puppet goes rustling and he's having problems with his wife. He was about to get divorced. The great news is all over.

00:34:24--> 00:34:51

CNN, hello. This is what is happening. A person who breaks that trust is he has a son of a hypocrite. And if you promise something, you say, Mom, Dad, I promise I'm gonna do this for you. I'm gonna promise I do that for you. And you break that promise. You know you can do it but yet you break it. That is a sign of a hypocrite. A person who keeps that promise a person who keeps that trust. He has that sign of the perfect worshipper, he has a sign of a perfect worship.

00:34:52--> 00:34:56

Also, again a lot of controversies with arena mala salvati you have

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

what is the last controller say that

00:35:00--> 00:35:12

He maintained his follow up. Remember a lot already reminds me. Again he reminds us about Salah, a person who prays that maintains his Salah praise on time, a lot of faith

00:35:14--> 00:35:18

in Allah, Allah to himself well to the ones who pray,

00:35:20--> 00:35:43

don't pray to those who pray that they are heedless of the death raise on time. They pray and fine or they delay their Salah so much so that they have only five minutes to pray. Or they have no issue in Salah they pray like the picking Crow, that's how they pray. But it's a lot harder to say no to them. What about the people who don't pay at all?

00:35:44--> 00:36:03

What about the people don't pay at all. That's something to think about brothers and sisters. What happens to these people who like a mulberry food allergy, dosa comfy have fallen. They these signs people who have the signs of a movement. They are the inheritance inheritance of what inheritors of

00:36:05--> 00:36:13

I live in a funeral for those for those that is the people who will interact with those panels. I would like to end it with a story.

00:36:14--> 00:36:19

A story of a hobby. Who shows that love that devotion of that perfect worship.

00:36:20--> 00:37:02

This Sahaba His name is salado the loved one in the Battle of Babel. Rasulullah saw Selim was learning the ranks, you know how in Salah you straighten the rows, also in the battlefield, restaurants in the rows. So what are the other one was a stocky man. So he was sort of in front of the road while the others were behind. So he was a bit ahead of us and came to him and sort of pushed him to make sure the line is straight when he pushed him there So Sam was holding a weapon right? And it hurts him. It hurts him. So why would allow you hurt me? I want to retaliate. I want you to prevent an iPhone I have an iPhone I imagine commanded

00:37:03--> 00:37:15

to punch you in the face employee to go away for a long while a solemn expose his chest. And he said retaliate. So what are the long one? He heard Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam and he kissed his chest.

00:37:16--> 00:37:18

So what what are you doing? So as

00:37:20--> 00:37:27

you can see what's going to happen? I'm going to die in this battlefield. I want my last moments to be my skin touching your skin.

00:37:28--> 00:37:31

I want that last moment. I have the love for

00:37:32--> 00:38:09

our heart, the love for Islam and I want to sacrifice myself for last. My last moments to be nice in 30 years. Right is a true worshipper a true believer in a lust penalty. That is a sign of a true brothers and sisters that Allah subhana wa Taala preserves, that loves to kind of alter like give us the signs of a true believer. There are lots of panatela make us true me and give us that level of becoming a moccasin now lots of panels Allah guide us all inshallah huhtala taala. And I asked Allah subhanaw taala to gather rice, gather us, like we are gathered here inshallah in Jannah, which is our hula hoop.

00:38:16--> 00:38:17


00:38:18--> 00:38:28

if you're praying, and you get this whispering in your ear while you're praying, what should you do? Who knows the answer I want to ask you guys who knows the answer? Yes.

00:38:34--> 00:38:37

So if you turn your head to your left and you speak what about the brother catches your spirit.

00:38:39--> 00:38:59

The lightspeed okay? So Sallam said in a hadith and the Sahaba has also mentioned this that in your Salah you may do so you may do so is what he turned to your left and you speak three times not literally getting all the saliva out but some of the alumni say that do this

00:39:01--> 00:39:20

Don't do it. Don't do it. Why? Because the brother next to you will be concerned. Right? You might dispute my go there and also some extra movements in your salon. So you know do that in your phone. According to this according to the Atlanta police una sala. There is an issue so

00:39:26--> 00:39:28

you know for creating women who answers the excellent question

00:39:29--> 00:39:59

in your Salah while you're praying in your prayer and you are in your suit Can you make law Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam encouraged to make dua he encouraged you know the Imam is going to prolong the search there may do as much as you can. But there is a condition the condition is in must be in Arabic in your third Salah in your fourth Salah, the DA in sujood or even in ruku should be in Arabic Now

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

I'm sure all of us know many webinars in academia has no philanthropy has an open

00:40:05--> 00:40:11

mind I say that's just one example. The Alumni say, if you don't know Arabic, you can read this.

00:40:13--> 00:40:46

Because this is generally for everything right? So you're asking Allah give me the good of this world and the good of the hereafter. And think think in your own language what you want from Allah in your form Salah because Allah knows what's in your heart, but we know that when we speak in Salah in a language of an Arabic speaking Salah, in third Salah Salah can be bottle it can be broken, but according to a lot of the other Aloma they say that in your Suna Salah it is fine This is according to a lot of the other automatic masala is fine but in the in the form

00:40:48--> 00:40:49

any other questions,

00:40:50--> 00:40:52

clarifications about the topic

00:40:54--> 00:40:55

inshallah if you attend tomorrow

00:40:56--> 00:41:20

I'm hoping all of you will attend inshallah, it is of course prayer makes perfect. And this course we will be discussing every issue about Salah inshallah we'll try our best in two days, whole day. So stay the weekend inshallah come to the course learn about the Salah, the Salah, the differences of opinions in Salah for example. You know a lot of us have problems. A lot of us have a lot of problems in

00:41:22--> 00:41:55

this country, but in my home country, which is Fiji where I was born, if you make roughly a day, right if you make roughly a day, they might statue on the face, because they are they know only one way they haven't been exposed to the others. So it's best to know many other ways. My uncle was telling me once in Fiji he was making roughly a day and another person said was there a lot of flies want to eat? Why are you always popping up? Because they don't know. So it's good to know and learn about Salah from a different modality in amateur theory. For example, Imam Abu hanifa Imam Malik,

00:41:56--> 00:42:19

we should know the sooner follow the YG Bible, follow the follow the follow the pillars of Salah we should know the prerequisites of Salah. All of these things we'll be discussing, we'll be discussing about the other end, we'll be discussing about the power, we'll be discussing the manner of walking to the Salah. We'll be discussing in great, great detail inshallah. So for those of you who can come in so long, I'm pretty sure there are still seats available.

00:42:20--> 00:42:24

So if you if you do want to come join Sharla you'll be a benefit to all of us.

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

Any other questions that you guys have? Yes.

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


00:42:36--> 00:42:40

All right. That's a good question. That's a really good question. It's actually a bit of a controversial question.

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

Okay, to be clear on this should be a mom who's a mom, a person who prays behind the man.

00:42:49--> 00:43:07

What is his duty, his duty is to follow the email correct. his duty is to follow the email. If the Imam goes Sudoku and you are reciting something, the scholars are in agreement that you go to Roku. You follow the email Why? Let's say for example, you are praying follow.

00:43:08--> 00:43:51

The Imam is praying the Gemini praying and they go to the zoo. And you came and you joined the Salah in the Roku. Is your first Raka valid Yes or no? If you join the Roku is your account. Is your car valid? it's valid. Have you prayed to the Fatiha No, have you prayed another soon after that? No. So there are other mothers say that the Eman recited for you. This is according to majority of the Allah. But if you are in Salah especially Eman Shaka hola Shafi Medina, they say that if you're in Salah you need to recite Surah Fatiha as well. You need to recite Surah Fatiha and that has a basis for it as well. There's heavy bone that there is a heavy one that but there is no Salah if it is not

00:43:51--> 00:44:31

recited. So this basis on that by Mr. Bahari when he says that the Salah of the Imam is recites station is your citation. So wherever he recites you don't have to recite. We'll be discussing that tomorrow as well in sha Allah in great detail. So the conclusion is if the man goes Sudoku and you are still reciting, it is better for you to go to the pool with him. Even if you have to cut your Aptera even if you have to cut your cut off because you need to follow the man you can't wait until the Mambo semiological have you there and you haven't gone through first. Right? So that's something we need to understand. Yes, in the Salah of hope. So that will hope that's different Salah few the

00:44:31--> 00:44:54

FISA law, right for example, in the battlefield and the enemies in front of you. Then there is a different method of praying. There is a there is a line a front line at the back. And when the commander says the the first line does such though, while the back stays there and watches Wait, it is any attack that's different. So that's clean, shall we'll discuss it tomorrow morning before it shall I think we'll end the day.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

Oh, that was beneficial inshallah. And we'll make lots more loss penalties.

00:45:00--> 00:45:08

He gives us the understanding of Salah the understanding of being the perfect believer and I hope inshallah, that we can be the examples of that in the future

00:45:15--> 00:45:21

because it's relevant to practical to my everyday life for the same reason, because I can relate to the teachers

00:45:32--> 00:45:34

use me as a means my learning

00:45:36--> 00:45:41

straightaway because I finished university last year on the course notes are very easy to follow

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

because it's a single weekend course.

00:45:49--> 00:45:51

Because I come with my wife we learn together

00:45:55--> 00:45:58

because individuals and leave us brothers.

00:46:07--> 00:46:13

I get to see wonderful people from all around the world who are interested in learning the sunako puppet in the morning
