Bismillah R Rahman Rahim
al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
wa sallahu wa sallam them. Alma Ruth Rahmatullah alameen Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge mine.
we come to a conclusion of our series of lectures here in Doha, Qatar and the masjid
We ask Allah subhana wa tada to put Baraka inshallah, in what was said in the last five lectures, and what will be said tonight, inshallah, and to forgive us for any shortcomings or mistakes that were made during these lectures.
Today's lecture, which is entitled The fifth of salaat.
It's a lecture that was in originally requested by the brothers to talk about the description of the prophets prayers that Allahu Allah He was sending him
as he came in the Hadith, where our beloved prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, he said, solo, comma, right morning, timoni. Oh Sally, pray as you have seen the brain.
And then the brothers I noticed before I came here to occur that they changed the title to focus a lot.
And this title fit us a lot
is a very deep and in depth six lectures, or three if we were to go into depth to cover the fifth of solid.
So inshallah, I'm going to talk about one aspect of the fifth of solid, as it will come shortly, which aspect this isn't shallow Tada.
When we talk about the salaat, we look at the status of silica in Islam and the importance of the salaat and Islam.
We see that is the second pillar of the pillars of Islam. And it's the most and greatest pillar after the pillar of the Shahada theme of the testimony of faith of the Shahada, Allah and Muhammad Rasulullah.
And we see this when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said my brother, Lahore and Yemen.
And he taught him what he needed as a daddy. And he told him to focus on the key of tower and the foundation of tower, which is what we mentioned, that you have to eat. He said in
a helicopter. Now this is the fifth of the Dow, which talked about before, as he knows the material, the person who is calling to Islam and inviting to Islam, he learns about him before he goes and knows how to deal with him. And he said, You call our method to relay him to LA he, she had Elena in a lot, and he rasulillah. So the first thing you call them to is the Shahada, the testimony of faith that there is no deity worthy of worship, except for a loss of Hannah Montana, and that I am the messenger of Allah, as the Prophet always said. Then he said that he said, was the lamb in whom? Agia Buccola Derek, if they answer this, and he by entering Islam,
then you teach them and the loss of Hannah wattana other photogallery him comes to Salawat, the yoga Haemophilia team, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has made compulsory upon them five prayers in their night in their day. And this shows the importance of the prayer because after he thought he focused with the Shahada, the foundation of the Dow and then entering Islam through to eat. Then he went to the next step immediately, which was salad and they showed us the importance of salad and another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described the salad as being the mood of the deen, which is translated commonly as the the pillar of the religion or sometimes translated as the
backbone of the religion. And whether it's translated in this way, or that way, you'll see that the foundation of something, if it is weak, what happens to it?
It breaks down and collapses, also the backbone of the human being, what happens if it's weak, also, he cannot stand. So whether it's the foundation of the backbone, we see that it's the importance of salah and Islam when our beloved prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam he describes as being their mood, the foundation of the religion, and this is why he said, and another Hadith, that the first thing we'll be asked about on your piano on the Day of Judgment, from our deeds is the Salat is the prayer. So if any if it's accepted, to be let's put it aside without
That would the ceremony. So if it's accepted from us from all swatara accepts it from us, then the rest of our deeds will fall into place and be accepted as well. But if it's rejected, then the rest of our deeds will be rejected as well. And this shows us once again, the status of the Sultan Islam. And this is the first thing we will be asked about. And all of our attendees depend on being accepted. It goes back to the salad, was it accepted or not?
Also, when we look at where the salad was made compulsory, was made
on the Muslims winning where
when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam took his incredible journey on this road Mirage, Allah subhanho wa Taala made the solid form compulsory upon all of the Muslims. No other no other act of worship, or no other pillar of Islam was made during that time. So this shows us once again, the importance and the status of Sultan Islam.
Also the salat, it's always watching upon the Muslim, there's no time when the flat doesn't become legit upon the Muslim.
There's no time except for the woman, obviously, she has a certain time, but in general, there's no it's even if you're sick. If you're in a coma, you have to make up this a lot later when it comes just like a little Phantom
hatch, for example, if you do not have the ability to manage the file used to be low, was the ability to reach touch to go to hedge the capability to get there if you don't have the ability,
is it legit.
So now we see once again the importance of the slot because at all times, you must make it as a cat. If you don't have money, you have to basically cut out so you see the pillar of the salon, it's always a must and something you must do all times. Even if you're in a you're sick. If you cannot
work even if you cannot move your limbs you must even pray even if it's just by moving your eyes and blink your eye so Pamela so the salon and never stops being compulsory upon the Muslim.
Also look at the salad, we see what the select what it gives us from the emotional effect it has on the Muslim, the emotional effect, it has on a Muslim, and that's where the profits and a lot of it he was seldom used to say to be less than or below I'm gonna be higher believe he wants to find the relaxation through the prayer and they start to cylinder.
Because he knows that because the prophets have I sell them and those who follow in his footsteps who are truly the believers, they find this peace of heart, this Halawa of the man the sweetness of the man through their prayers. So we see now the emotional effect it has on a Muslim and that's why Allah subhana wa Tada. What did he say and so to start, you know,
savasana and to seek assistance through suffer through patience and through what? The prayer. So now when a Muslim and I sent him when they said, if he will find anything difficult in his life, he will immediately turn to what
he returned to the solid. So it shows you it's it's a way out for the true believer, and it's a way out of the difficulty that dunya and that's why Allah subhanaw taala told us to seek assistance, through patience, and through the prayer.
The Salah is well it is the difference between the Muslim and between the non Muslim and that's why it came in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he said al Abdullah the bane in Albania whom a solid fermenter aka Kapha that the cabinet between us and them in in the people who are that the non believers or the non Muslims, that it is a solid, so whoever leaves the slot and he has committed an act of Kufa and the other Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, they originally were Badal, Khufu a ship turbo salaat that between the Cooper and the active ship between the men and the coupon active should join partners with almost no penalty no worship is
leaving the slot. So that leaving slot is just like what the cool for the disbelief in the shirt joining partners with the loss of Hannah Montana and here's an important benefit that in these cases as shuffle Islam in Tamia, Rahim Allah as you mentioned, and it also optimise the theme in his book, The colossal optimist opinion which has been translated to the English language as well. He mentioned that in the Arabic language and instead of Hadith, or when it says, el poofer, in the Hadith when it says elico for the Kufa, he said this, this shows that it's the cover of x bar is the major coup for which means the person actually leaves the fold of Islam when he does it. So this
coup further is in the Hadith, and it says elico for an usher
It shows that it's the major coup for and it means that this person leaves Islam. And this is what was said this was the understanding of the Sahaba. Well, the Allahu anhu. And that's why I've delayed worship, Rahim Allah, whatever. And he said that the companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam an OB Allahu anhu that they didn't see anything from the deeds from the actions, leaving it being poofer except for the Salat.
And if we look into the statements of the Sahaba, we would see the likes of Omar Maha Bob, and Jabari Abdullah and Abu huraira. And you Massoud and even who are best avoided all of them.
They have clear statements saying that whoever leaves this a lot is a Kaffir is a disbeliever. And a person who has left the fold of Islam. It was also narrated on Ali, Gabriella and that he said that whoever leaves the salon is a Kaffir is a disbeliever. The narration on alliott of the law and when it comes to the net, the chain of narration, the scholars differ, is it authentic or not? In my first research, I found that it was not authentic, but I found recently some of our of our machines, they seem to be hasin, the Hadith, however, any whether it's correct or not, we have a lot of the others that have a Honda who say very clearly that this is an act of poofer. And this is why the
Imam even has an Rahim Allah, he mentioned that this is the map of the Sahaba. This is the consensus of the Sahaba they agree upon it, whoever does not pray, has left the fold of Islam.
And this shows you the importance of them because like Abdullah, she I think said that they didn't see any other action when the person leaves it be an act of Kufa, it's an act of disobedience of maaseiah. But that doesn't reach the level of being an advocate for only the leading of the prayers, this one quick thing we asked ourselves now, what do we mean by leaving a salad? Does it mean that if we leave one, one slot
or two or main leading slot in general that a person leaves the fold of Islam? Who knows the answer to this?
Three Juma prayers, what else? Anybody else?
And don't be scared. We're here to learn. Whatever you know, inshallah.
I'm saying how many slots is what I'm asking a person we said, Now, it's clear from that from the Hadith from the statement of Sahaba.
Even it's one prayer by purpose, okay. Now the scholars who have said that the person who does not pray leaves the fold of Islam.
So some of the things that have to do man he mentioned the idea that whoever leaves the Juma his heart becomes black hands on Okay. So now the scholars who are who have said that the person who leaves the salon has left the fold of Islam they differ, how many salons is it?
If you go back to that Halle Berry,
by even region and pay attention this because the famous with Halle Berry, which is the exhibition of Sahil Bukhari, who is the author even harder.
But the first person who started to do the book called Halle Berry, Shah Bukhari estimation style Buhari was the Imam and have even been rigid and humbly in the regiment humbly and they say that Rahim Allah, he started explaining the book Sahil Bukhari and when he reached the book of the janazah, the funeral prayers, his janessa left his house where he Mama, so he went, he reached only the book of janessa. But the Hampton has been printed, and it's one of the most beneficial, shows explanation of the cycle cardio fine, especially because he did a very good job. And the book of human it's very, very beneficial. There's two copies that I know of that have been printed one in 10
volumes, and one in seven volumes. So it's a very beneficial explanation. If you go back to the first few videos, you'll see he talks about this issue in detail, and he mentioned is that a lot of the sellers from the any of the scholars of the past, they see that even if a person needs one prayer, on purpose and doesn't pray it that he leaves the fold of Islam
and from the scholars of our time, is our shift, shifting bezel him along with Tyler. He is also of this opinion, that if anybody leaves, even one prayer,
on purpose that he leaves the fold of Islam, and he took this obviously from the statements of the scholars before him. He also has a famous Fedorov Rahim Allah, that if a person or to equip his alarm clock every morning for fudger on when it's time to go to work, and some people do now, when it's time they'll put up for 5g because they want to get an extra sleep extra boost for the day. So
Now if he has to be at work, at eight o'clock, he'll put the alarm clock on seven 630 whatever how much time he needs, but he won't get up for a certain budget. He said a person who does this intentionally then he leaves the fold of Islam.
Other scholars mentioned different things. But I mentioned what even what they mean mentioned, he mentioned that it is the person who leaves the salon altogether, he never prays. And this is an opinion that I see in Charlotte to be the strongest of the two.
As a person who does not pray also altogether, he leaves the fold of Islam. And if you look at our personnel, we have a lot of Muslims, especially the time we live. And we know that perhaps they might leave sometimes pray sometimes, and they're in a rock, they're fighting within themselves, because they want the good and she thought is pulling them away. And we know these people personally, inshallah, we don't believe that they have left the fold of Islam. But obviously, it's Haram, what he's doing, he's in great danger. And just the fact that some of the scholars, a lot of the scholars, so I mentioned the book I've even read you have and humbly if you go back to this, he
mentioned just one prayer, the fact that this doesn't mention this, it shows you the danger of the situation, and how you need to focus on striving to never leave any of your prayers.
The topic we want to talk about tonight, when it comes to the fifth of salaat. I told the brothers
this, what is he? What are you gonna talk about is there's not enough time to talk about everything. So he said, What are you gonna talk about? And I said, it's a secret?
I'm not going to tell you. So they kept asking me, you have to tell us what is it you're talking about? Says the secret?
No, so that's what I'm gonna talk about some of the secrets of the select something I was telling them the truth of the law. So it's the secrets of the selected slot of the salad. Now, some of the Forgotten fifth of salad. That's what I want to focus on tonight. The fact that we have forgot to know we say you need to do this, this is assumed to do this, it's Why'd you have to do this, you have to make sure dude like this. That's not what I want to get into tonight. I want to get into a forgotten topic about this a lot. And these are some of the the secrets behind the things we do in the prayer, whether it's the things we do in preparation for the prayer, or it's the things we do in
the prayer itself. And this is what we said we it becomes unfortunate for us a custom a lot of the things we do, it becomes an either, we always continue do it like this, do it like that, and we don't think about why are we doing this. So let's start inshallah, and we'll take a trip together, and start in several points. And tonight's lecture, inshallah tada to look at some of the secrets behind the things we do in our salon. And in preparation for our prayer.
The first thing we want to reflect on is the will do itself.
the Sahara, the purification of the soul of the body, is because the Sahara Desert we don't focus on how many types of tahara purification or there
were the brothers sitting.
two types of purification, I get to pick on them. Because we studied together in the morning, we set up either solutions or the answers.
And they always sits in the same spot, so it's easy to find an umbrella.
So now, there's two types of bahara, two types of purification, which is the power of word
of the EU itself and everything which comes with that, and then the purification of the soul. So a lot of us now we focus on the purification the way we think about the first type, how to make we'll do what soon What should you do what you not do? What breaks you will do, we want to focus on tonight is what is meant by this rule, what is meant by the slot itself, is to purify what our hearts and our souls have been how many times we forget this. Look at the verse insulted neither I have to do, which verse is it? Verse number six.
Was it as called I will do all the time we studied in fifth because it brings the provider what you have to do and will do how you make Udo if you don't have water, what you do if you have a major in the vessel, all of this is mentioned the eye so it's a very important if at the end of the verse, the end of the ayah Allah subhanaw taala he mentioned to us, why he has made this rule compulsory upon us.
Who knows the reverse Mercury, the law,
leverage alikoum inherits, it is not what to make difficulties a lot is not what to make difficult for you
He wants but he wants to purify you. So from this will go the goal behind it and the secret behind it is to purify you now just about the purification and making you clean. The purification, more so of your hearts and of your soul. Now when we're making our will do and the water is dropping off the limbs. It reminds us of what and Shall we go into the slug how the sins and shall also will be falling off like this. So Panama
how the sins and shall we falling off and from the goals the death of this prayer is for the sins to go away for us to purify our hearts.
From all the bad deeds, and to get another chance, it's like it came in the head either prophesied seldom, the person who plays the five prayers is like the person who leaves his house and in front of his house is what? A stream that he washes himself in. And he said, Will there be any sins left. So this is this is one of the main goals. And we never think about this.
So this is what we want to reflect on tonight, these types of things behind what we do.
Also, when it comes to the power of any being purified, we want to be purified also in what
are the way we look as well. And we want to as most of us who luzina to home and the cleanest you need to look good when you come to the prayer as well. So when you're making also the law, you're reminding yourself that you want to be in the best of states, when you stand in front of a loss of power within your prayer, wear your best clothes, make sure you smell the best. Unfortunately, now we find a lot of brothers and sisters, when it comes time to their prayer, they were the worst thing they have.
You're going through the masjid, he's wearing a T shirt. A dirty though, why? I'm just going to select
the other ones who come to Silicon frigid how many times it happened to you, when you're coming out, you're listening to the man and the guy comes next to you and he was very big.
And then he didn't brush his teeth when he came to the machine. So kind of like
he will just select for you.
What is this happens all the time. So he said his word you have to come to the hammer, you can just brush your teeth. It
happens I mean how many times it happened and I think it's gonna happen to all of us. So naturally you come into salons you're coming to stand in front of the last panel wattana the melodica the angels are there, you have to make sure you look when you smell good. So also is a reminder the will do remind me of this, that we should be in the best of states also in how we look in our prayer.
When it comes to purifying our hearts, this obviously lecture needs to be in detail by itself and have several lectures I've given on the topic. But what are the some of the easiest ways to purify our hearts on the chin four quick things that help us as gentle and purifying our hearts to be the light on first of all, is implementing and perfecting or to heed our worship of Allah subhanaw taala when you perfect your to heed and you only worship Allah and you remind yourself these acts of worship are only for him and you do nothing of him your life becomes philosopher with Allah, everything you do is an act of worship. You'll see what this is purifying your heart, you're
cleansing your heart because you're making your heart solely for Allah subhanaw taala the maraca Baba Allah subhanaw taala when you implement the to heat of the smell was the fact the names and attributes of Allah Subhan Allah subhana wa Taala in your life. Now a person we mentioned last night, we're talking about October, when a person comes to do that which is displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala he remembers that Allah is the sneer. He's a little bossy. He is the all seeing the all hearing. So even now, if nobody else sees you, you remember, from the when you implemented to hear the tactic of the tauheed implementation of the tau e, you remember that loss of final data
he sees you, he hears you. That's why you see the weakness of a man. If a person were to go into a room and do that was Hello, and the door to move. If it jumps, he's scared. But if you're not scared from Allah subhanaw taala you need to check out your heart you have a serious issue. So now when you when you had this email, you implement this email in your heart that last month Allah He sees what you do he here's what you here's what you say. And you stop that was Adam and shala this is one of the greatest things in purifying your heart.
Also the issue of the man with the whatever happens in this dunya to you, you know, it's from Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's why it came in the Hadith. of gibreel Ali Salaam when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he mentioned le Mercado, the Pillars of Islam. He didn't just say Allah will cover Elisa to Scylla What do you say to men will carry
heavy machinery to bleed in the good and evil which comes from the good or bad that comes from it. And this is only when you have this a man the strength in your human will lay this will help you in cleansing your heart and perfect your heart. Anything that happens? You sell hamdulillah it looks evil, that perhaps you do not like something and it's good for you. Perhaps you like something is evil for you as the last month or
so now when something happens that
no matter how difficult might be and you say something good happens you say Alhamdulillah that's why I always like to reflect and I mentioned in lectures before here of the Hadeeth of algebra and geometry movement. At the beginning, it's something strange the affair of the believer, because whatever happens to him, it's good for him, as the professor is Adam said, and at the end of the heady it was something good. He thinks it's better for him. And if something What? That he has patience, and it's good for him. So this is what a Muslim, a true believer used to believe in implement this amount of sugar in your life and show up in the lattice.
One of the best ways to cleanse your heart.
The last issue we'll talk about when it comes to the tawheed is the belief in the hereafter
human alpha, when you have strong up either strong to heal strong belief in the Day of Judgment, what becomes your goal and the dunya
that you're after your goal is to get the agenda in here after you want to need everything and it's done yet doesn't mean you don't work, you know, do this, some people understand that you strive in the dunya we're all striving to be the best we can be in the dunya whatever job we have whatever we do, but our main goal is where is to get the gender. So when somebody heart is attached agenda,
how's it gonna be with with the dentist, it's not gonna affect him, he'll be cleansing his heart because he's not living in this dunya with you? Well, we see some of the some of the machines and I remember one of the ones who taught me
to heat and the second year of the college, and in Medina, and this man, so pantalon, Allah protect him and get Baraka to him and his life and his children. One of the best teachers, which was very good teacher, he taught us about smells, effects, and about other.
So we used to see him, you see how we used to what dress, very simple, a very simple way to like this very simple, though. And even the car he used to drive was very simple. And the brothers told me that this car that he's driving, they forced him to buy it. He didn't know how to drive until a few years ago, because he didn't care. And you would see him when he just the way he walked. And he wasn't with us in the dunya. His his reflections, His heart is to tell the students that the ship is not with us. He's reflecting on the earth and the earth. And you could see in his face that he was sadly he was a person of the night prayer. And that's where the some of the said if you say the
person of the night prayer, you can see the light in their face, it shows during the day, just how the shock was. So the person whose heart is attached to the alcohol, then this is one of the best ways of cleansing our hearts. These are four ways from the tour itself. The other three ways I said I mentioned quickly to help us purify our hearts is through all of the a bad debt all of the acts of worship. I will say this a lot and giving us a card and going for Hajj and Umrah all of these things any type of act of worship will help you cleanse your heart and shallow Tana and thirdly the we citation of the Quran and we didn't know Koran. And fourthly, the vicar the remembrance of Allah
subhana wa Tada. Allah the decree lay
barely to the remembrance of a law the hearts are assured. So a Muslim always needs to what Remember last panel with Anna and that's why the prophets of Allah when he was selling them, one of the companions came to him and he said to him, asked him for advice. He said, Now yours no listen what when we declare that your tongue will constantly stay moist with the remembrance of Allah Mata your constant remember Allah
and we look at our scholars who implement Islam, not just on their tongues in their lives we'll see is what they always remember a lot. The brother used to tell me when we go to visit chef and basil himolla we find that we constant remember long because you never see the chef except for his remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala all the time. And I always mentioned the story The first time I met the ship when he helped me get into the University of Medina, Rahim Allah, that when I went to him,
I came to him to give him the paper, and he was on the phone with a phone call from France, answering some questions from a sister from France. And then when he finished when he goes to talk to the person next to him, he Amelie starts supine and loud.
He waits into the reader starts to recite. If the reader stops again, something he doesn't waste any seconds, stuck for lost or for lost or for using memory alone.
And also when you look at the Senate, how they were when it came to remembering Allah subhanaw taala, the scholars of Islam, the true scholars of Islam, they had something I believe I mentioned here is that Rahim Allah he had, in his a Houston is sitting he had 5000 students, they say that only 500 of them used to write the other 4500 used to benefit from his morals, his beautiful manners. They can be used to benefit from the manners of this year, only 500 other students were writing. I thought to myself,
now, we have maybe a few 100 people will come to lessons. And if we don't talk in the microphone, they have difficult hearing us. So I said okay, it's a quick narration, but how to 5000 people understand this year, that's when I first started seeking knowledge. I didn't know this. So then we learn we're studying the science of Heidi, they had something called animal bender that he would have different students and each part of the of the machine. He would say for example, any scholar scholar had he was a for example, had nothing to work here that Wilkie Rahim Allah told us, it will go to the first student. Then he would go to the back student. Paula had that
Nokia Go to the back, kala had the Nokia he said had it okay until it gets back to the end of the circle. And just because they want to make sure that nothing went wrong in the heads of the province on
the same chain had to come back to them.
You see I'm saying so go it goes to the end of the circle and then has to come all the way back to make sure we say correctly. So what was the scholarship of Hades? What was he doing during this time? remembering and also Panama now wasting his time that we do. And now if we were to go, what's the first thing we would do? All of us?
alomst sum. Look at the difference between us in between them. May Allah guide us to that which is good.
The second thing we want to reflect on is
after we have made our will do and we come to the prayer we stand facing in which direction?
the Qibla What does this remind us of? First of all, the greatness of Mecca. What it most of what I was saying earlier about
Mecca. In the old debate with the arena's
Linda de Becker, the first House of Lords that was put for people was the one in Becker, Becker another name for mepco. They wanted to see at the end of the is a panel with Anna
Baraka, who then he described as being a place of Baraka, a place of Huda place of guidance, a place of blessing, oppressive Huda and he said after next Monday, Hello Can Amina, whoever enters it isn't he feels safety, and you feel safe in this place of Panama. So this shows about the importance we face this direction reminds us that we are blessed as an oma, the loss of panatela chose for us the direction of prayer, the best and most holy place to face in our prayers with hamdulillah.
Also, if we reflect even deeper, and before that, I'll tell you an interesting story before we reflect a little deeper that
a group of Christian missionaries in Indonesia
they were working to call Muslims to enter Christianity. So some weak Muslims
Not because they believed in the app either. And they believe, but because they wanted what?
Money, they wanted money, because now they're getting money. They're very poor people. So these people often have money and assistance. So they took it because they weaken their email. And they started to learn and they were attending all the classes and learning about Christianity. So the people there the Christian missionaries, they were very impressed. So they said, since you have you know, gotten to the stage, when you've done very well, we want to give all of you have gifts,
anything you want, choose it, and it will happen.
So they went to the side together, Indonesians together to hell it up. And they went back and they told them, we've decided what we want when I go to Mecca.
So now, even though they've gone astray, and apparently, in their hearts, they're still attached where to go to Mecca is where they want to do all of their life. So that you see that Gambia is a place that it has in the hearts of the Muslims and
if we want to reflect deeper,
if we look at
the spirit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
When he first went to Medina,
what was the direction he was facing? And the first 17 months
when he was in Mecca, Elisa to Salaam also is facing the same direction. When he was in Mecca, he used to put the car back in front of him.
So when it came time this he in his heart, he wants to face Mecca. But this was a small town I was chosen for him. So hamdulillah he's doing as has been ordered, but he keeps looking up to the sky and hope as well. So that was what I mentioned this and then he mentioned at the end, Subhana wattana.
Allah, Allah, Allah in Allah may or may not be one of the reasons a lot of change the Qibla was to test. The believers in the first stage of Islam when it when the Muslim state was was what was put together, it was established. So one of the first reasons that people was changed was the test. And this reminds us also that we're in a test
in this life. We're here to be tested.
When is jr to be tested?
Flemmi has given us a youth Roku Amana
Hola, Katana Latina Kobe polyaluminium
lemon and Kathy de los matar make clear that you are here do you think you're going to see when you'll be left to see we believe you're not going to be tested very a lot tested those before us to see the truth when he will test us as well to know who are the true for who are the lions should Panama very very clear. This is one of the reasons we're here. So we face this Scribbler it reminds us of the fitness of the of the hardship that happened during that time because it was difficult for a lot of people. Now this major change in the religion during this time, even the Jews during that time and the hypocrites and mother*ing they took this as an opportunity to slander Islam and to
attack the Muslims and the religion. If this is the religion, why is it like this? So in the days we live in, this gives us what
it is strength, because now we're living in a time of fitna. We're living at a time when our region is constantly attacked from non Muslims and from the people who claim their Muslims who live in the Muslim countries. Look now in the last few years in Muslim countries, the things you see said about Islam and Muslims in the Muslim newspapers. A few years back, you couldn't have found that. But now when Muslims when the Muslim start to get attacked from the west, they saw their knight in shining armor has come to save them, because these people are hypocrites obviously, because they were hypocrites. So they found the opportunity to start slandering Islam from the inside. So now we see
from the beauties of this, this test, Allah you means the Cadiz minute
Allah says what is that was that which is pure and good. And that which is not? And only the true believer, the true Muslim is the one who stays firm during these hardships and during these tests. So it's also one of the benefits we gain, we look at the other direction, why are we facing Mecca? What we reflect on this, all of these inshallah are things we can gain and benefit from this in shallow data.
The third point
when we standing facing the Qibla, we have to have settled our we have to be covered in a certain way for our prayer to be accepted. Men and women. What is the out of demand
for the navel to the need for a salon to st you can pray without a shirt and salon?
Also, the shoulders must be covered during the Select demean. What about the woman?
The full body except for the face in the hands. That's what some scholars see. And some say she must cover completely everything her face in her hands as well. Like, what what else a lot was she covering slot
in select just the cover facing slot.
If there's been around, she covers her face, obviously. But if there's no men around the jam covers her face up, and she can also uncover hands. It's also important that we point out that some of the scholars see that it's compulsory logic for even to cover her feet completely during the slot. And whoever does not do so that her slot is Bartholet it's not accepted. So this is important to be pointed out. Also the woman must cover her feet during the prayer leave now this this covering for men and women. What is this reminding us of? It's given us tip t as reminders of something What is this?
Not try that there's no wrong answer. Maybe somebody will come with an answer now that I've benefited from it, I'll write it down.
That you should have shame. It reminds us of how you should be outside of the prayer as well. Because this is you have this shame when you stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the prayer also you should have it in all aspects of your life and in all times in your life. So this cover covering that reminds us of this in the prayer is one of the great things we if we reflect we benefit how a Muslim should be in all times how a Muslim should be at all times how she should be dressed, and how she should be pious and she should be humble.
The first thing we benefit is when we're standing in the PM. We're standing in the stance.
We remind ourselves of that great day on yomo piano,
we will be standing in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala
the Yeoman candidate who comes in emphasis in a day that will be equal to 50,000 years and feel like it's 50,000 years, we're standing there waiting to be judged in front of Allah subhanaw taala we're standing there and will be covered in our own sweat
depending on the deeds that we have done in this dunya so some of us will be covered, maybe halfway up to the knee. Some will be covered to his waist and some will be almost drowning in his sweat because all the bad deeds he has done in this dunya when the sun will come over our heads and we will feel this great 30
And everybody will be sipped. And they are as they were born naked without clothes,
naked, with no clothes. And that's why she
will be alone. She asked if I was assuming she heard this, men and women everybody in one place with no close. So he said,
she said they have something much more severe this, nobody's gonna be even looking at the other person on this day. Or as he said that he said, Nobody will even dare to look at another person, because his only concern is himself.
If you look into sort of the abyss at the end, what is the loss of animals Allah say about this day? Yo, Maya Pharaoh Morrow minashi. And who else whom he was he was, so he met he women, why he will run away from all these people. Why the equilibrium in Houma in
the day, that the person went away from his own brother,
and his mother and his father, and his wife, or his spouse, and his children. Are there anybody more beloved to us in the Union these people?
Think about it, your own brother, your mother, your father? And how much do you love them? Everybody? How much you love your mother and your father? How much you love your own brothers and sisters? How much do you love your wife?
How much do you love your children? Look at the children, for example.
Now any parents, if his child will become ill become sick?
And how does the prepared feel?
How does he feel?
worried he hurts inside? Well, like any parent that sees his child ill he wishes he could take that pain himself. He wished he could take that sickness, if he and he could take it. And for his kid, it's pretty difficult for a parent. That's how much they all of us who love our children, this much a parent now, if he if he will be willing to die for his kid. If you're walking down the street, and a car is coming,
and it's about to hit your kid, what are you gonna do?
What are you going to do?
You're going to go into the street to push them out of the way, even if that means you being hit and being killed yourself because of this love you have for your child. But on that day, he won't even run away from him won't even be concerned about him. Why? Because the last month and I said that every person that they he has his own thing to deal with. And I've seen FC, his only concern that they will be himself. So Pamela, so this PM, we're standing in front of Allah subhanaw taala reminds us of that great day. And reminds us also this is our one opportunity in this dunya to be get prepared for that day is the only chance you have no other chance. And we mentioned about this in
the football of Juma about the people who regret and the betting on their hands, wishing they had followed the way of the messengers or send them in the way of good during this dunya.
The fifth point
is what we see as we raise our hands.
What is a lobotomy?
Allah is great.
If somebody were to become Muslim now right here, what are we going to say?
We say all the time. If somebody gets married, somebody has something good happen in his life. What do they say?
We say all the time.
But we say it all the time. What we want to reflect on now is a low really great in our hearts is the aquabot honestly, truthfully in our hearts, everybody ask yourself, everybody will say yes on the tongue. But in your actions, does it show up or not? This is the question. So now somebody
and when it comes to doing that, which is Helen that which is head on and he chooses the path of harem is a lower the greatness hearts.
Not really. This is the truth. And they say we have an expression we say and I say in America because it was in English sometimes. English don't say the same things we do. When we say in America, the truth hurts. Sometimes it does. This is the truth. So the truth hurts. And this isn't it. So now what do we gain from how many times? I'm gonna give you a homework tonight. When you go home, sit down and start from something and count how many times you see a lot in the slot and one day the five daily prayers and then ask yourself, look at your actions. And the seller, Rahim Allah are pious predecessors, they used to always have what they call more hassle for they go to bed at
night. They will hold themselves to account for everything they did during this day is one of the great ways to strengthen your human. He see all the all the bad things they did in his day and they make us tougher to Allah subhanho wa Taala they beg for forgiveness. And they try during the next day not to return to that. They look at all the good they have done during that day. And they focus on building on that and the next day is massive but they hold them
to count at night. So we hold ourselves to account and we ask ourselves, when we go to bed tonight after we do a homework assignment chulmleigh is a lot of really great and our hearts are not on our toes. Michelle Obama was born all the time. But in our hearts interactions Is he the greatest. This is one of the things that this allowed his colleagues to reflect on and to benefited from.
the sixth point is where you put your hands and how you put your hands during the slot. And this is important because it came in as soon as
to a hoodie, or it came out almost in the suit. Now see, there is a hoodie about where you put your hands a place where you put your head. One of them is authentic, has been where the president needs to put his right hand on the left hand on his chest. And the chest area, as the scholars of Islam described it is this area here right on the on the bottom between the stomach and the chest. Not up here, some Brother, you find me choking themselves, though, it's here. This is the chest area. The other brothers who put their hands down under the navel. This is a Heidi that came on Alice
Rotella on the snare, that chain of narration as the scars have had these mentioned and it's not authentic, it is weak. So the head either just has an impediment is the Hadith, about putting on the hand on the chest. And then it came and as soon as the prophets I seldom six different ways of putting the handle, we know we we've got the right or the left is the first step, the second step is on the chest, how you put it in the chest, there's six different students to do.
It's actually three times two, which equals six at the end. So now you put it like this.
This is one way, the second way when you put it in the middle like this. And then other way, the third way closer like this. So these are three different ways.
These are three different ways. We start here,
here, and then you have to here and you have to the left side. So this now is three ways to put the head. The third way is when you grab it used to grab it, sometimes it's hard to sit I'm not like the three fingers like some of our brothers do like this, no, bear with the whole hand, he'll go from this area and sometimes grab it from this area and sometimes grow from this area. So this equals six different ways of holding the hand, the hands on the chest during the salaat.
What we want to reflect on is some of the benefits from this email.
He said it's dual mania Diaz's
that is a type of humbleness between are standing in front of heels greets. It's a humble stance. And that's why the posters chose this stance and as soon as it gets it's a humble way of standing up for almost Montana. When you put your head down and you put your head like this, you'll see this type of humbleness, remind you of the Muslim must be humble in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala and remind you that the Muslim he's in need of Allah subhanho wa Taala and remind you also that a Muslim must be humble in all aspects of his life. The seventh point
is the doula very stiff to the opening, supplication in the prayer, and there are different types of sub locations you can find.
And you can go back to the books of the sooner and I would recommend for learning
the methodology of how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to pray the book of the great scholar of Hades shift Mohammed Nasser de la banda Rahim Allah Shellman, his book, The prophets per described are sivut selectadna v, celluloid cinemas in Arabic. It's one of the best works, I believe in and how to pray. And the shift in the beginning of the book. He mentions the correct methodology of the scars themselves. He brings what Abu hanifa Rahim Allah says about finding the sin. And he brings what Hema medic. And what do you mean sheffey? What do you mean, Rahim? Allah, what they say about Paragon as soon now, as an introduction, teaching the student who's reading this book and
wants to learn the proper methodology. It's not what you found any of the 40 moms on even though they're great emails, we all love them. But what's important is that we follow what they say, by implementing and the sooner so the sheer he goes now and he shows you that this is the Hadith and it's found in this book. So I'm glad that she was able to find any
original book. It's three volumes. It was printed after Shaq's death, but the small book which is any in one book, I actually had it with me, I forgot to bring it to the I'm sorry, but you can find it's easy. I'm not available everywhere. The description of the province prayer by Chef COVID-19 Rahim Allah
the date of his death, or the opening, supplication you make for the prayer. There's different types. You can do a whole bunch of them. But why are the other different types what is the ECMO, the wisdom behind the promises and I'm saying different types of supplications in the beginning
To make it easy film What else?
Ma'am test is one of the most important points that I mentioned. So does it become a common what, like a customer rotation that you do in your life, you're just doing a certain thing. We know because we don't want any also it makes it gives it gives life to the prayer, you do different things, different types of sooner. And then also each application has different benefits in it and different things. Do iron itself different meanings, so cause you to reflect on it, and not to make your prayer routine. So now when you have different types of sunette, you memorize one today, next week, you memorize the second one, you memorize the third one, you'll find you're always changing
around. And that's why shiftless lab, Himalayan mentioned the importance of always changing and doing the different types of sooner, because it revives the sun, first of all, and it gives you different types of it gives life to your worship. And in all aspects. And even for example, if you look at the event, there's two ways the event has been confirmed as sooner. So now we try sometimes to do the different event in certain countries, if it's okay, depending on what you will call for that country, say, the countries, we don't have problems with that. And they do. They should do the different types of sooner all the time. And you remind yourself of what of reviving the center and
all aspects of life. That's some of the Hickman behind it, also, but what I want to focus on when talking about the usdf, what is the goal of it? Why did they have this introduction, supplication in the beginning of the prayer, some of the things that I found our scholars mentioned, they say it's actually like an introduction, from the heart to the prayer. It's like an introduction to remind yourself, because now you want to focus on In fact, they want to focus on your Roku on your sujood. So it's like an introduction. And it's taking you from the buffalo that you were in before the absent mindlessness before the prayer. So it's an introduction getting ready. Just like now, when
you want to work out, you want to exercise what's the first thing you do?
Warm up, you do the warm up. So now this is a warm up, but a warm up for your hearts. It's introduction now for the heart for you to work, get ready for your friend. So to focus on your prayer.
The eighth point is this the either seeking refuge
from the ship on your machine, seeking refuge from a ship on.
And this reminds us
that we're about to enter a battle.
And we mentioned last night that we're constantly in a battle to ship on.
And we mentioned the example of waking up for Southern pleasure. You wake up on time you make a little later before the time goes out do you go to the machine I go to the machine we're in constant battle with the ship on
but more so in the salon that she thought he focuses and all of us know this. He remind you of everything in the slot. Now on our mobile telephones, what do we have to help us memorize the the appointments we have, we have the daily reminder. She upon comes to you with a free daily reminder every day in the salaat remind you of everything that you need, what you need for next week, what you need what you should have done last week, what you should be doing today he comes remind you Oh, by the way, it's important important. Don't forget, oh yeah, it's true. So you're thinking you lose it, she thought he focuses are ruining our prayer for us. Because he knows I told you last night,
he's 40 he has fifth in the religion. He knows he knows how important the slot is for you to be successful in your life. He doesn't want you to be successful. He doesn't want you to go to agenda, he doesn't want you to find peace of heart. So he's gonna focus on destroying the key to that which is the slot. He's gonna focus on the slot and try to ruin it for you. So this is a reminder to us that we're about to go to war with the shavon and it's remind us that we're in constant battle that she thought in everyday life as well reminds us of the prayer and also outside of the prayer. Something interesting I found
that email said Rahim Allah, He said that what you gain from your slot
and the dounia or how easy it is for you to be successful in your setup and in dunya this will be how easy or you are successful you will be in the hereafter pay attention and what you gain from your slot because it came into how do you get some of it some reward for a part of it or half of it or less than that. Depending how much effort you put into balance sheet on and focusing on benefiting from your salon, you'll get the reward for it. As it came the idea that some of it will be thrown back in your face says you didn't take care of your prayer and it gets thrown back in your face and not accepted from you. So now
a mama has said the success the success you have in your prayer of benefiting from your prayer this dunya this week will the success you will have on the Day of Judgment Subhanallah
I'm gonna tell you a story that shows you how bad the chiffon can be when it comes to us in our prayers. A story that happened and a Muslim country where they used to pray the bore and also in the soup in the market area. So every day they had one of the the traders there the businessman he would lead the prayer
So when he sat down for what he believed to be the fourth record, and they believed to be the third record, they started saying Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, because they're saying it's the third record, and he believes is the fourth so he's not he's not budging. And this is just true if you're the Imam and you think what you have is done is correct. And you're sure then you don't listen to this upon. But if you have doubt, then obviously you get up and continue. So he was sure that what he was doing was correct. And he listened to this. So he said a salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa Salaam Alaikum. Until they love each other said, You paid only three records. Say no 4343434 he
doesn't want to tell him the truth of how he knows. He said, I'm 100% positive that prayed for him. And they said, No, you pray three, and they're getting into it back and forth. 3434
they said, Look, I said I'm I break it down to you.
He said in this superior in this marketplace. I have four stores.
Every day when I pray, I let you guys go. I go to each store. He said the first look, I go to the first store and see what's going on as to what do I need in any new stock? I knew this. So he said, I went to the first store. I went to the second store. I went to the third store and I went to the fourth store. So there's no way I pray three, because I know with all four stores today,
the cache upon any corrupt software, and this guy said he does it every day.
So she thought he focuses on the prayer. The ninth point is the best Milan of saying Bismillah What does this remind us of the Bismillah
Montez everything is the name of Allah, especially the slide itself and you're about to do it remind you not to have rehab.
Not to do it and if somebody else is looking at you, because you want to look good in your salon. And that's why now this one is the shape one, if somebody comes in, and you're reciting the Quran, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen, Michael J. Man, he you beautify this out, and then all sudden your back is straight. Now.
Make sure it's mushy upon Allah, may Allah protect us from that. So this reminds me of Bismillah it's who we're doing it for, and the name of who and name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this throws out that it's already biased only for a law, this act of worship, and all acts of worship, are only for who for most apparent wattana. This is the first reminder. Also, as the brother mentioned, that we reminds us that everything is from law. Everything that the Muslim does in his life is for las
colinas allottee Uzuki, we're here at Blue,
luxury color. Now this is I will say barely, that my prayer, my music, my other acts of worship, slaughtering, what have you other acts of worship, and my life and my death, therefore loss of Hannah Montana, I will not join any partners with him.
As a reminder, a Muslim woman says Bismillah we say all time Bismillah Bismillah. But how deep you want to reflect on what we gain from this Bismillah? Are we gaining anything from it or not? Is our life actually for a law or not? Are we living for a law we live in for Shere Khan and for in being slaves are less than our desires. So now, this is a reminder when we say Bismillah that we must live as Muslims only for Allah subhana wa tada and from the mercy of a law that if we make everything in the name of Allah and everything, for ultimately you get reward for all of this, even something very simple when it comes to feeding your family, the process and he said even the food to feed feed
demotic. Even the food you put in the mouth of your wife
is what it's edited if you have the correct Nia, and unfortunately, we don't focus on benefiting from this. Because it becomes customer just like the slide we're talking about. Now it's become it's become custom to do this and to say this, even every aspect of our life. If we have the quick near the correct attention, we'll get reward for it. Now as a Muslim man, is it compulsory upon you to take care of your family, your wife and your children. It's not up to you. As us tell my students I said even if your wife makes 50,000 a month and you make 10,000 you can't have any of our money in Islam. If she wants to give it to you, it's up to her. But now you have to do everything you have to
pay the rent, bring the food everything so to watch it you have to do it. Well you can get you can do it as a customer and not get reward for you'll get reward for a job you're doing your budget but I'm saying if you focus on the act of making an act of worship who have to worry about that you'll get even more reward for it inshallah, Tada. That's what I want to point out. The 10th point is the fact that had self understand we have left
they do not reflect on the Quran. So it's like they have a lock on their hearts. So the core has been sent down to reflect and patho will be in every slot. Even now, it becomes an expression that if you ask somebody for example, I asked the brother Do you memorize Zaid phone number he said like Al Fatiha because you memorize You're so good. We say it so much as an Arabic expression.
We should remember is this good or bad to have? Because if it no good, you read it so many times as you're either a new Muslim, or were born a Muslim. They people know well, like, in fact, they reflect what was it called oma Quran. Why is it called? The Why is the salon not accepted? If we don't read the last 11 o'clock, there is no prayer accepted, if you don't read with the fact that that was the fact so important.
Let's think about it. This isn't I mean, this is why I'm talking I want to call myself and my brothers do tonight is to reflect on these things. Why was the pattern I made the only store that if you don't read it, your slot is nullified, it's not correct. What is what is the behind it? What are the secrets minus madhhab? It's very deep. Because he for days and talk about the fact that and the hook by yesterday, it was who attended with the full base today. We talked about reverse.
Reverse yesterday of butter.
Even with Islam, I talk about entire verse.
They talk about entire verse,
half a verse. And if it was,
if we wanted to, if there was another codebase, and I didn't do here, but I did it in another place, I will add to guide us but guidance he died. And yesterday we talked about Serato must have been only part of an iron one football. And if we had time, we could have made an entire lecture. That's just half an hour. So shows you how deep the Father has, he does want you to reflect on it. When to reflect on the right hand the meanings in it. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen the rope of Allah mean of all of the universe's supanova Donna, we're thanking Him. And if you look at the name of Allah Subhan, Allah blesses la smetana to endless. And if you look at the beauty of Islam, how Islam
teaches a Muslim to be when it comes to being faithful.
It says to look when it comes to the affairs of the dunya you look at the person who is what,
look at the person who's below you, when it comes to acts of worship.
That person is above you. That's why now some of our friends who say to us that and he was actually in Saudi Arabia, he was actually Mashallah. He was a prince from the royal family. And he's a student of knowledge. At the same time beautiful brother Mashallah. So when I used to always go to rehab, I used to visit him in his house, or the castle of the castle, as they say. So when I go there to the house, we used to reflect on certain things that were benefiting from knowledge. And one of the things I used to say, Is love or love or shipping best, even when I told him my story about shame and mercy because you want to write a book about chef and as he took the story and wrote
it down immediately.
He used to say, why don't we try to be like shipping beds, he said, the students have noticed that we can't be like shopping bags. He said, Well, like if we were to reach 25% of what she had reached, would it be a nightmare for the woman a blessing. So this we can try. So that's what we look at who is above us, and we strive to get there. 25% 10% that's it's a blessing for the woman. But when it comes to the affairs of the dunya we look at that person who's below us, because there's always somebody more even if you're in the scheme. If you think you know the juniors is difficult, you're having a difficult time there's somebody who's worse off than you. Then look at the people in some
countries that don't find what to eat and what have you. been a blessing. So always think Allah subhanho wa Taala for this, this is one of the things that we can't go into deep into depth in the ayat
II look at the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala all the blessings he given us is what we talked about the Toba that he accepts the Toba from us even though we sin 19 days upon wattana many human Deen once again, reminder that he is the Owner of the Day of Judgment, it reminds us to get ready for that great day. He cannot do what he can to stay in What does remind us of
only for last minute Allah
also the importance of the Arabic language I can't explain it here. Now. When they say echo nabooda within
nabooda Yak it should be but it's a Manila he put the Naboo Atlas it shows you the importance of the hustle that you only return to a loss of Panama Tyler and these types of worship, to to worship him only to seek his assistance only remind once again about the the core of Islam the basic, the basic of Islam, which is the terrain once again, we come back to the shift to heat, then you continue to identify the hell.
And you see the verses, we will miss a lot of certain stuff in the last verse, When you talk about which path to follow. It said then that the path of those were what the Christians and the Jews, why the Christians who want to change this, this dipsea now in the day we live in, they say it's not politically correct the day we live in. So let's change the text to say no, well, we're not going to change the tissue is the suit of our scholars. What did the scholars say? When it says Well, you didn't have to be eiling him on a Berlin and he mentioned the Christians the Jews because they are the ones or anybody who who acts like them when it comes to their worship. So the person who knows
that he knows that Huck and hasn't thought of it. And he's doing like the Jews did because the Jews wouldn't
In the process and came to them, and why did they move to Medina? Why were they even there in Medina, because their books and their knowledge showed them that the profit of the last
less than mankind, less profit to mankind would come in that area.
And you notice,
I can't go into depth now showing the proof of that. But there's clues from their books. Now you notice that they didn't even go into Mecca, they went straight to Medina. Because they knew that's where the Prophet would be. But then when he came in, he wasn't from them. They rejected the help. So anybody who knows the truth, and they reject it, don't work upon it. And they're just like them in their actions. And anybody who worships emulsify with Allah to ignorance is just like the Christians because when you ask them now, for example, I mentioned I think two out here, maybe two brothers in the morning session, that one of my friends who study was in university, one of the
things that guided him to Islam was when he was 15. You always want to ask the priest, he said this Trinity thing. He said, I can't understand it. It doesn't make sense to me. He said, You know, he put his arm around me say, son, sometimes you just gotta have faith. Sometimes you gotta have faith one understanding why faith, it doesn't make sense out three in one in one in three and it doesn't make sense it doesn't that common sense.
these are some of the reflections that will
will go on to point 11 and 12.
The report Institute
what is the Hickman Why is the wisdom when
we put our foreheads on the ground next to Jude, it reminds us that all acts of worship only for who for last month on it, it reminds the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala because this is the greatest act of worship is to make to bow and to prostrate, knows whether the people who are when they used to do to the kings, this is the top type of worship that you can offer to somebody respect. So that's why now when you do it for Allah subhana wa Taala remind you of the greatness of Allah and the only as a Muslim we only worship and then we only carry only makes to Jude and we only make record to Allah subhanho wa Taala in all of our life is only for Allah subhanaw taala
the 13th in last point, which we'll leave it at inshallah, obviously there's much more but we have no time. The seller
the seller from we see a celebrity camera tool on the right side, which is Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah on the left side what does it remind yourself
whether maybe the slime itself runs your brotherhood if you give Salaam to your brother, maybe it's a good point, we could add it on inshallah in the future. Well, the main point what is this? What is what do we gain from this?
What do we have what is every human being have on his right side, his left side, angels. So panela now as we're about to leave this prayer, come down with a with a loss of hydrodynamics prayer, we're about to go back to the union to the fitting of the dounia we remind ourselves that what
we have on both sides, angels, one writing the good deeds, and other writing the bad deeds, it's a reminder to you to reminder to you watching how you need to be in this dunya and reminds us once again of the Day of Judgment at the end of soul deserves Allah
like to see the youth sometimes over the boys here can be from so deserves to be brave of you memorizing
individually, I want some of the young kids, somebody volunteers and nobody has went down.
I like to say sometimes when I like the young kids to take a young kid, but I'm saying because none of the young guys said it. So somebody had to step up to the plate.
So anyways, the point I want to point out at the end of sort of the Zilla needs to is most of my data says that even an Adam's weeks of good or evil, no matter how small it is, at the smallest possible thing to be, no matter how small it might be. You're going to see it on the Day of Judgment. It's been written down we say salaam aleikum, wa rahmatullah salaam aleikum wa Taala, reminding us of everything is going to be written down. It's a reminder of how we should act, the path we should follow. We should pay attention to what has told us to do and stay away from that what you should have been is from and remind ourselves that we're going to see this on the Day of
Judgment. And now, a mom sub has chosen to come to call the parents so inshallah to continue to speak to him
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
wa sallahu wa sallim ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala Sahih marine
This brings us to an end
of the series of lectures and the workshop we do here in Qatar
I would like to say at the end,
before I forget that the fifth slot when I chose the title, or the bonus shows the title, I didn't choose it that
I want to focus on something different from the pickup slot. And that's why I said, The Forgotten pick of slot surprise when they make the DVD, they will call it the Forgotten pick of slot.
And when this lecture I've given it before, but so Pamela, each time I give it,
it seems to something happens to the recording.
And one time I'll tell the story, and I'm delighted it means it's not meant to be so we have email with the Father. Even though this is one of the lectures, the most lectures, I've enjoyed giving myself. So hope the world has benefited from inshallah myself, I've benefited from the law. And my main goal was when I sit in this chair is for abderrahim, the benefits of the law. And then if everybody's benefits, and we think Allah subhanaw taala, my, my main goal is benefiting myself and then my channel, Donna. So now, at this subject, I really I really love this topic. And it's something I enjoy putting together. And I remember when I was giving in university in Sudan that
I started that we're going to start WC, wait a few minutes. So I turned off my recorder.
And a sister came up with her mobile telephone today. And he said, Don't worry, see the shift is going to record it. So you don't need to record it. So she took her mobile telephone. So I started I gave the lecture. They enjoyed the lecture, I enjoyed it, everybody wanted a copy of it. So look down at my recording, it was turned off.
I went then to our Bose and Piper TV in tune. And they asked me to do something English. So I did it in English until the TV, when I went to ask for it somehow, some way.
It can't be found Cialis, hopefully still if somewhere but it couldn't be found. So I found the brothers here for now Mashallah. They are focused, and they've done such a wonderful job on recording as well. So I said perhaps is an opportunity for us to record. And as I was leaving the hotel room, I wrote my own recorder just in case something happened again, that will be recorded in Arabic I have it's been done in Arabic. And it's it's available in Arabic, but the English version, it was never available. So Panama. So I said now and I was thinking about the flip of salad. And I said the Forgotten fig is one of the most important things to do don't focus on. So what to focus on
this tonight. And that brings me to talking about the filming and the great job that Rosa had done in filming. I want to thank Allah subhanaw taala First of all, and then thank our brothers who have enough for all of the efforts they made to make this possible. And we've been joking a lot with each other. And he I don't know how any is from the grace of Allah smart Allah obviously and the mercy of Allah smart Allah that we made it to this, this level because we actually finished because every time from the time they were trying to bring me here, something went wrong. Nothing went right. Even when I came here, myself, obviously it was a lot of things have been getting here. I thought I
wasn't prepared like I should be.
And even the first time I came in, I said here in this chair, I told the brothers, you know that I had a very bad fever for the first two days.
And I didn't think I was gonna be able to the lecture. I mean, the fee was so bad I was shivering from being cold and then I would be sweating and a few minutes from being so hot. So I was in very bad shape. When I came and sat down the chair hamdulillah Allah tala made it all easy. So it shows you some of the patterns sometimes you know when something's meant to be it happens. The Drosophila supanova Tada and we've been working hard together, we've been here we've had very little sleep. And even though lamotta has made us any keyboard to make it to the last day, I told him Shabbat is the last time we're going to do this in sha Allah. The brothers have strived so hard to make this
successful. And I want them I want to thank them for all the efforts and obviously any on top of all of these brothers any the first one to think obviously our brother I believe
at the moodier of the center here for his efforts and agreeing to host this event and for them to bring me in. And then our brother at jazz for all the effort he made and all the hardships we put him through in a jazz affair I didn't put him through difficulty just in this now also in some personal issues of minds the whole affair he helped me out with that greatly May Allah bless him and his wife for the help they helped me that inshallah so now
we'll see the need of the Third Brother but he asked me before this he said if you say something about finance, don't mention my name, because he doesn't want his agenda and inshallah he will be there whether I say anything or not. So when the third brother Rohan mentioned his name, who strove very hard as well, to make this happen, and like to say to all of them that Lafayette May Allah bless them all and grant them the agenda and grant them the great reward inshallah for all the effort they made.
About the taco salad hamdulillah when I decided to talk about a topic, I said the secret the brother didn't always want to talk about our brother heads that Hello, hello somewhere our brothers in the audience they brought for us DVDs from the fifth of salaat 13 episodes.
done by chef Mohammed Salah, the famous brother who does the escal houda. On TV on Hulu TV shows the fatawa a very good brother of ours, Michelle, may Allah bless him and get back and all the effort he's making to help Islam the Muslims. So we have with us how many copies
didn't bring an extra 15?
Okay, so there's about 70 copies of your now another 50 that might be coming shortly. So what have they left, we have now the fifth of sorts, 13 episodes 13 episodes from Hulu, TV, and the brothers which I will pass it out to you in the back after silicon shala. So please, nobody come and rush the front. If there's a lot, everybody will get their free copy of this DVD inshallah from our brother Sheikh Mohammed Salah, and there's not enough copies and there's gonna be more copies for you in the future. And hopefully they send some to the sisters. I don't know if they did or not.
The first question is about the sisters who have their menses and coming to the lectures in the masjid. Obviously, when she's during her menses, she's not allowed to come inside the masjid. But there should be haven't been to the sister section. So I don't know, there should be a place where the sisters can sit, which is only on the side of the budget. And actually in the budget itself.
Maybe it's like a hallway area that should be suitable obviously, for sitting and benefiting with the speaker. So obviously, because this happens to the women, and they should not be forbidden from coming to benefit from the lessons so the brothers there should be a place upstairs I'm assuming there is but if there is not a private place or a section this inshallah is a request of the brothers, they will build this for our sisters in the future, but and he just because she wants to benefit. She's not allowed to enter the ministry itself. But she has to stay in a private section where she can hear and benefit from us in general Donna, any other question shalom for the comma.
The brother mentioned that there's a from the sin to waste a driveway a ship on, it's not really spinning, spinning. It's I don't know, we call it English. It's the small little
it's more than a blow, I guess. And it may have been a blow in the spirit. But you do it any three times on the side and you see all the blemishes, and you do
it three times on the side as it came in as soon
as it came in, as soon as the sentiment is helps in shallow driveway she upon during the salaat.
The brothers asking how to play with this difficulty. Because any especially now it's difficult because we mentioned yesterday as early time.
One of the main things to help us pray fudger is going to sleep early, common sense. If you stay awake all night, it's going to be it's going to be different, it's gonna be difficult, excuse me to wake up. And it's common sense. If you go to sleep at 12 o'clock or one o'clock, when the alarm clock goes off at 330 it's not gonna be easy to get up. It doesn't matter how strong your emotion is, it can be very difficult to get up. Because if you're a human being and you fall into deep sleep, and it's not gonna be easy to get up. So you need to strive to implement the sooner of sleeping early. That's the first step. Also one of the keys I always tell our brothers and sisters
is what you do before you go to sleep. How many of the people now they stay awake, watching television and they're watching television was good for them. Islamic children something like that, but they're watching that which is haram and displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala and as a scholar said to Judo that the sin the Mercia, it pulls it sister, it's not enough for her she wants more to bring more to you more sense. So he brings the next thing the third and the fourth and the fifth. So this is what happens so when you're awake at night and you're watching it let's head on displeasing to last fall down you stay up late doing that. What how does it affect your hearts it puts the black
stains on your heart and your heart into your hearts. So now we will do that which is bar which is obedience to Allah subhanaw taala for the pleasure you don't find that to appeal so I think these two things are the main things and then other things you can have for example there are so many brothers maybe who sleep very heavy so maybe their wife sleep late and she can help them get up and it's from the sooner also for the even for the night prayer for them to help each other get up and pray the pmla so obviously certain failure is any even more important that obviously so she they help one other waking up for failure. Maybe if you have a brother call you you know brother who
never misses the feminine Gemma, so please call me in the morning wake me up and keep your phone on different things you can do inshallah, to help you out and Long Island.
From the sister section they're asking about the mom who doesn't pause after the Salah after repair to have
the correct opinion is that you read it. Even if it's reading there's a difference of opinion in the scholars. Some say you should wait or this but at the best thing
I see that you start immediately after he finishes, you read. In fact, even if he starts reading something else, as well, even though he mentioned that it's in the Ma'am, he should pause a little bit and give the person the opportunity to do it in the process of use the pause, and he was there for the fact that he was pausing anyways, before he started the new store. So it's not as soon as that quick anyways, so it gives you a time, obviously, you're not going to read it. You have to read as fast as possible to get it done in shala and reading it properly, but at a speed where you can get it done. And even if the amount of strokes when you're at the end of it, but how you continue
inshallah, and you read it, because it came in handy. There's no slots for the person who doesn't read, in fact, so you must read that five to 10 channeled data, that's the strongest opinion of this
person, is it permissible or not?
The correct opinion, there is a difference of opinion, some of the Maliki scholars and some of the machinery of our time they see that it's not permissible to bring in a second Gema second group in the masjid, but the more correct opinion inshallah is that it's permissible, it's no problem because it came in handy when processing sigma two sub dhikala had any a form of surgical who will pray with a person who was late and they sometimes say no, that was he was praying enough when he was praying the father of that is trying to make it's making it more difficult it's very clear that the first of them gave them permission to pray a second amount whether this person was praying the father that
was nothing doesn't make a difference. So it's very clear from this hadith that
it is permissible for a second Gemma and it happened some days but the world we live in you have traffic you have this hamdulillah as long as you're trying and some of the scholars mentioned what is what is not permissible is when
it's not permissible when you need to pray the second Mr. This unit may can become a sin pay attention that is purposely he intends to miss the first amount now for example somebody sitting down
no we can go pray as to how many gems that we have tonight how many girls prayed about six seven Mashallah. I mean I said the six seven Gemma, like a game when you can do it when you want to? We'll go 15 minutes late. If somebody purposely does it becomes a sin. But if somebody is trying to get to the message on time, and if something happens, then he prays inshallah second Jamaat, this inshallah is the most correct opinion. And Allah knows best.
Was the from the sisters, first of all?
Okay, one of the time.
And also Are we allowed to display
the sisters asking about pictures and having pictures and frames at home? If it's scenery or something like that, that's no problem having that as there's no room whatsoever, issue of the pictures, it's become a serious issue in the time we live in
our pictures that we see the photographs, are the pictures mentioned when the officers have said that a lot and we're so worried that a lot of crews who want to take the photographs
Is it the same the pictures in the in the camera and is that we see today, the majority of the scholars say the pictures, these matinee pictures, and especially the filming, that is not the same thing. It's not the same ruling. Some scholars say it is. So obviously it's better to stay away from it. And they are doing a too much of it. But then the majority of the scholar they see that it's not the same thing. That's the first thing even though if we were to say now that these pictures are allowed,
because this is what the scholar said, the other Heidi, that the angels don't enter the house of has a picture in it. It's implemented.
It's implemented even if the picture is allowed pay attention is so we say okay, these pictures we take the opinion of the majority of this cows, these pictures are allowed and they're not held on but hanging in the house is not allowed because if you do that the angel is not going to insure because it is a picture at the end of the day. So this is the crypto pay that even if you have a picture, you're gonna hang in the house and do this and also the know when you have the attachment to the pictures, it becomes dangerous. If you look back into how this should start in the in the people of Newark, Elisa Lam this outstanding picture and things like this, when they were the pious
people they will put it up on the wall or what have you. So it can lead you astray. And any issues in somebody know wouldn't happen I put this picture so it's better just to stay away from it. And do not do it any because the angels want to enter the house and Allah knows best. The second thing
the sister is asking the question, which do you do first do you put the hands down or the knees down first? Any you have to realize that these issues are fifth there is a difference of opinion between the scholars and three of the Imams which is the mishap of hanifa
Have you have a chef at NAMM? I've met all three of them see that you put the knees down first. And he's going to have first. And there's a difference of the Hadeeth understanding of how does the camel go down and what have you. But it came very clearly in Sahih Bukhari that the prophet SAW, they seldom put his hands down first. And this is the metric metric, and a lot of the scholars of Hadith. So I personally see that the correct opinion is that you put the hands down first, because it's very clear in the modern Sal Bukhari that he put his hands down first. And the other scholars have another idea that was not really authentic, about the knees first. And then they tried to say,
but the camera his his knees are in the back and the front and they went to a lot of detail here.
It's very clear that he put his hands down first and he said to solemn, so that opinion shala I feel it's the it's the strongest and knows best.
go back to any other questions from the other side.
Know, people always watch TV or whatever other
people are chatting every time you know, through Ramadan.
In the last
video, people say
shallow, shallow, you mentioned several things. First of all, it was a request I requested for the Muslim yesterday that we have a no TV Ramadan, released into the bad television station, inshallah we don't take it away, we should do it all the time. So let's make a start. And it's Ramadan. And he mentioned also the thing about Facebook, and how people waste their time chatting and stuff like this. So it's a good point as well that you don't want to waste your time is an opportunity that might not come back. That's why one of my lectures I gave in Ramadan before was any for suffered Latin root or an opportunity that could perhaps never come again, it's Ramadan. So so we need to
look at this Ramadan, it's coming as an opportunity that might never come back, saying that, after the comma. I don't know anything as soon about this. Honestly, I don't if there is, somebody else knows they can tell us, but I don't know. I know that. And then it's, you're supposed to say what the warden says, but I don't know after the comma, you say certainly, or any other type of thinker, I don't know. And then lo item. The next thing about the sujood the, from the sooner to make to answer you as close as you are to Allah subhanaw taala him The sooner is when you are introduced. So this is the place to make dua and hasta, la somata. When your institute
as from the sooner that's when you're in the line for the prayer, it's from the sooner to
put the feet together. And as it's obvious to stand shoulder to shoulder and the the the feet to be at the other end ankle to ankle. This is the sooner but as soon as unfortunate A lot of people don't know.
That's when you put your foot next and he moves to the side because he doesn't want you to put your foot on his foot. And this is this is funny when you when you talk about the Hickman the wisdom behind this. It shows the the the strength of the Muslim woman brotherhood because they're standing together in one solid line like this. So this one should be this as soon as the proposition said do not leave the gaps for the ship on as well. So this is the way you're supposed to come together as soon as, like I said, why people run away from it is because they don't know it sooner. So they see a guy put his foot he moves away. So now we teach people in shelters from the center until
eventually it was it was spread and the people will know and it was starting from the minute
