Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh many of us know the Salatu Torah, the Torah way or the night prayer that is offered after salata, Asia, in Ramadan, sometimes it's eight or sometimes it's 20. But the origin of that surprise Allah was when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam would pray after Asia, and he would pray in the companions would pray after him behind him. They love to follow the messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he prayed this prayer two nights or three were upon the last day. The night after that he stayed in his home after a show, and he didn't come out until fudger time the companions were wondering why didn't he come out after Isha? He told them

00:00:57--> 00:01:35

verily I feared unknown to frog sutopo alaykum that this will be obligatory upon you, I didn't want you to think that this will be an obligation upon you. Mercy on the people that you love, mercy upon people in general. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding this see why we know that the miswak they wouldn't root stick from the root tree primarily that we that the process of use to clean his mouth with and he would wake up as he said it a common allele issue. So Fairhope is a word that he stood up from the nighttime, he would use the celiac and he would use it in his mouth, the one who worked harder to learn from me more often than Rob that it is cleansing of the mouth and

00:01:35--> 00:02:21

Allah is pleased with it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said regarding this Lola and shocked by that Mattila Amar to whom bc wacky and the coup de Sala, he said, if I did not fear that this would be a hardship on my oma, I would order them to use the so celiac and every single prayer for every single prayer. So mercy upon the people do not be hard upon the people have mercy upon them and withhold harm that may be withhold something that may be harmful to them, or something that may cause them to leave the religion. It's important as we talked about earlier, that people have mercy or you understand people's level and at the same time, you don't overburden them with the

00:02:21--> 00:03:02

rules of Islam. You use it in a way that is wise and we see that Allah subhana wa Donna even did that within his legislation but to the Raj as Allah subhana wa tada said, Yeah, you will in Amman letter karabo salata. antoon tsuchiura had a momento Kowloon, Allah subhana wa Taala when the prohibition of liquor was first revealed, it was do not come to the prayer until you know what you are saying, Do not come to the prayer tsuchiura when you are drunk, because that was an occupation or preoccupy us to preoccupy themselves with drinking. So Allah came with to determine she was gradual when bringing the rulings of Islam and the legislation of Islam don't come to the prayer

00:03:02--> 00:03:46

when you are intoxicated. But later, later in Islam, Allah subhana wa Allah revealed that in the middle commonweal in Mesa will unsavable as lamb richeson administrate on fidgets enable Allah Darla mentioned that liquor and he mentioned gambling and other things are rageous it is impure, it is from the actions of shavon fetch to enable so avoid it, stay away from it as an order of prohibition. So Allah subhana wa tada was gradual within the legislation. When we tell people about Islam, it is in purse important that we have mercy with them. We don't compromise the integrity of the ruling, but in the way that you may say it, or in the way that you may do it for yourself, know

00:03:46--> 00:04:09

the level of other people when recommending an action for them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to do something called as we saw, he would fast without breaking his fast at milgrim. He would fast for over 48 hours and even reach the level of a week. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would do this, when the companions found out about this, they wanted to do the same, probably Allah Who?

00:04:10--> 00:04:52

And they said yes, Allah indicates was it. He said under less to less to commit to become the practice of law. There was an ime said when the companion said you do a continuous fast, they said the process and he said I am not like you. I am not like you. Verily, Allah subhanaw taala supplies me and he and he provides for me your money or your skinny that he is the one that gives me food and gives me drink and some scholars mentioned that is with the left the two in a binder with the total undivided attention of worship and servitude to Allah to where he doesn't even think about eating or drinking. The Companions may not reached that level and that is specific from the size of the

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

province the license specific to him. So when mentioning this we see the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala which is shown through the mercy of the

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

Prophet sallallahu wasallam with his companions, fathers, mothers leaders, be the action do the actions of them with tucky in having mercy upon the people when dealing with them, and not being hard on them as sin Amane come to light and better cats. Thank you
