Increasing this one habit that you already do can make you one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Jannah.

00:00:09 --> 00:00:48

Assalamu Aleikum, I'm your brother Abu at this Salam speaking to you from the blessed city of Makkah. That's my kettle Makara Rabea Ibn cab Eslami Radi Allahu anhu, a companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was known for his unwavering service to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he devoted his entire life to be in the company of the Prophet sallallaahu Selim and he would spend his nights in his companionship helping him with his needs, including getting him waterfall do touched by Rebecca, Radi Allahu Anhu. Dedication the prophets of Allah I've said them said Tim asked me for something, Robbie, from the Allahu Anhu with his purity

00:00:48 --> 00:01:35

of devotion responded saying I request your companionship in Jannah Allahu Akbar, what would we ask the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam if he were in front of us today asking us the same question What do you want? The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam then asked Is there anything else that you want? Robbie I wrote the Allahu Anhu affirmed that this was his only wish, meaning he only wanted the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in Jannah. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam den said for any Allah NFC kavika frati sujood help me to fulfill your request by prostrating more. This powerful Hadith shakes the hearts reminding us that every single act of worship, especially our

00:01:35 --> 00:02:19

sujood, prostrating to Allah, Lord of the heavens and the earth, this act of worship carries with it not just a physical act, but a step towards elevating our ranks in the hereafter. It's not merely a bodily movement, but a humble act of submission that grants us closeness to Allah Subhan Allah to Allah and his messenger SallAllahu Sallam in Jannah. Our obedience and love for Allah and His Messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam create the foundation for us to be with those whom we love in the hereafter. Our deeds, especially our Salah are obligatory and voluntary prayers, and the sincerity and humility in our prostrations can directly correlate to how high our ranks will be in Jannah. The

00:02:19 --> 00:03:06

more we engage in the novel of voluntary press, increasing in our prostration the more we solidify our chances of being in the company of the best of creation, Mohammed the son of Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Jannah. Isn't that the thing that every single Muslim desires to be with the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Jannah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, increase in your prostrations for every prostration that you perform before Allah subhanaw taala will raise your position one degree and will remove one of your sins Subhan Allah, how merciful is Allah how easy it is to get closer to Allah? How much more should we love prostrating to

00:03:06 --> 00:03:55

Allah, Lord of the heavens and the world's? Of course, as we all know, the quality of our worship matters immensely. When we prostrate we should feel a great deal of humility and submission to Allah allowing us to be completely engrossed in communication with him. But many of us may ask, How can I being this insignificant, tiny creation among many of Allah's Great creations? How can I increase my feeling of being present in front of Allah, Lord of the world? Subhanahu otile, especially when we have so many thoughts, worries and fears racing in our minds in this day and age work meetings, deadlines, assignments, bills to pay budgets, kids to entertain spouses to please the list is never

00:03:55 --> 00:04:38

ending. How is it even possible to focus with humility and concentration when prostrating with all these distractions zooming in and out of our minds? Well, there are two steps we can take during our prostration. To accomplish this. The first is understanding that when we prostrate we are prostrating to the Creator of the heavens and the earth and everything in between. We are prostrating the Creator of life and death itself. We are prostrating to the only being in existence, the only one who can change our affairs for the better if he so wishes and deems it good the one who is more merciful to us than our own mothers. In fact, he is more merciful to us than we are to

00:04:38 --> 00:05:00

ourselves. Indeed, when we say Subhana Rob Bell Allah we affirm that Allah is above all imperfections. It means Glory be to Allah who has no imperfection we are comforted by the realization that Allah subhanho wa Taala has the absolute power to effortlessly alleviate our burdens this dhikr thanks

00:05:00 --> 00:05:39

to partner up Bella Bella means that our Lord is free from everything that is imperfect. We, on the other hand, are filled with imperfections and have problems that we can never resolve alone. And this leads us My Brothers and Sisters in Islam to the second step, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the closest a slave is to his Lord is in his prostration. So increase in your DUA is here, the messenger of allah sallallahu Hyson is literally giving us the formula for how to get closer to Allah, and in this formula is so much benefit for us, both in this world and the next. It's really that simple. If the closest a person is to his Lord is during his Sajida, his

00:05:39 --> 00:06:27

prostration, then it stands to reason that if we want to get closer to Allah, then we should simply prostrate more. And the second part of this prophetic formula is to make dua, ask ALLAH SubhanA, Allah to Allah, beg him for anything that you wish, beg him to clear your debt, beg him to remove your anxieties, beg him to increase you in your sustenance, beg him and cry to him for every single one of your worries and problems. And keep doing this every single day. And then watch what happens in your life. Watch how your problems fade away one by one in ways you could never imagine. And while everyone else on Earth eventually gets fed up, when you keep asking them for things over and

00:06:27 --> 00:07:13

over again, your Creator instead gets happy. Allah is pleased with it, and Allah loves it, when his slaves humble themselves in supplication. This is why our prostration is one of the most powerful places for us to make dua. So make dua make dua in your own language, vent to Allah about all your worries and fears and ask him to aid you in fixing them. Allah loves it. When we seek his aid, not only will you find that you feel better about whatever was occupying your mind, but Allah subhanaw taala will give you a solution for it as a result. So let us seize these precious moments to pour our hearts out and be assured that he has, he knows and he responds. Allah subhanaw taala says we'll

00:07:13 --> 00:07:58

call Rob Docomo, the only SDJ welcome and your Lord said Make dua to me, and I will respond to you make this practice a living tradition in your daily prayers. Make dua as much as you can. Whenever you do a search to Allah and for sure, you will increase your focus concentration and humility in your prostrations any prostration to Allah where one attains greater focus and presence of mind is superior to one where he doesn't and the lengthy prostration in which one is sincerely devoted to one's Lord is superior to that which is shorter. Therefore, while quantity does matter, quality purifies and elevates our worship. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, let us all strive to

00:07:58 --> 00:08:39

embellish our prayers with abundant and heartfelt prostrations nurturing both their quantity and quality. So we can elevate our ranks in the Hereafter, and be blessed to be in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in paradise, May every soldier be a stepping stone for us towards that sublime goal than May we all find comfort and humility in our prostrations. And may Allah subhanaw taala unite us with His Beloved Prophet Muhammad salallahu Alaihe Salam in the highest levels of Jannah. Without reckoning, no punishment. I mean, the Honorable I mean, please don't forget to share this with your loved ones. So together we can all try to increase in our

00:08:39 --> 00:08:48

prostrations and closeness to Allah once again. I'm your brother Abu Salam, speaking to you from the blessed city of Maccha. Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
