Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah He also he has mine. All praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon his servant and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as follows my dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam as salaam alaikum, wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. First and foremost, we say Alhamdulillah that allows sosial has extended our lives, to give us yet another chance to witness the first 10 days of the sacred blessed month of Malaysia, for ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us the ability, that we worship him the way he deserves to be

00:00:53 --> 00:01:24

worshipped. My brothers and sisters in Islam, these are 10 days, and they are the most rewarding. These have the entire UI and the best days of the entire UI. And there are so many good deeds that a person can do so many good deeds a person can do. But we need to prioritize and understand what is important and what we're supposed to focus on. And what we're supposed to give much of our attention to.

00:01:26 --> 00:02:00

And if there is one deed that we're supposed to give full attention to, it is our obligations. Allah He my brothers and sisters in Islam, nothing will bring you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala other than the obligations and the best deeds to be done during these 10 days, and outside these 10 days would always and forever be the obligations of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the riesel Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said in the authentic hadith

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

and this is

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

a hadith bootsy. So Allah subhanho wa Taala said this woman at the core Robert la Abdi bishi, in a hubber, la yamim of Du Bois de Allah Zoysia said, there is nothing, nothing that will bring you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala like the obligations that our laws Zoysia commanded us to do. This is the thing that will earn you the closeness to Allah and the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala and everything else would be secondary, everything else is no effort, and everything else is Mr. hub liked and permissible to do. So we need to focus on our obligations, and one of the main obligations and this is the greatest obligation after a towhead after one embraces, the tauheed embraces La

00:03:02 --> 00:03:11

ilaha illa Allah the oneness of a large version, the greatest of the obligations is a salette the prayer

00:03:12 --> 00:03:18

we need to focus on the obligation of a solid, especially now during these 10 days.

00:03:19 --> 00:04:03

And one lucky e my brothers and sisters in Islam, not everyone who performs the actions of the prayer is considered someone who prayed and if there was a man in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam who prayed when there is Allah while he was alone told him IRS year for solidly for iNec alum to suddenly this is a companion that prayed in the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and after his prayer, maybe Salalah while he was ill, and told him get up and pray again, because you did not pray. So not everyone who performs the actions of the prey, doing this and recording so using coming up and down not everyone who does the actions of the prey is considered

00:04:03 --> 00:04:19

someone who prayed. We need to focus and we need to pay attention. How are we supposed to enhance our solid and perfect our solid, so that Alonzo Hill accepts it, and so that we can see its reward in this life

00:04:20 --> 00:04:59

and on an on the Day of Judgment, my brothers and sisters in Islam when a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described his relationship with a solid in a beautiful Hadith, he said Habiba la Ameen dunya come of preborn he said we're sure a that correlate to it for salette la corte Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says two things in this world the life I love, and that is perfume, and woman. This is what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loves of worldly matters. Perfume because it smells nice.

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

has a beautiful smell to it. And it pleases those that are around you. And it opens their heart to you, as opposed to someone having a bad smell for Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved perfume. And from this worldly life, he loved the woman. He loved woman and aroma, hammer home Allah said, Because woman, when a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married these women, and he had so many wives, they are the ones who would narrate to us his private life. hold us all the loss on the Allahu alayhi wa sallam slipped, how he woke up, how he prayed at night, how he performed the hosel how he performed his shower, and all these matters that happened inside the house, who's going to

00:05:47 --> 00:06:36

narrate that to us woman, that Maria sallallahu alayhi wasallam loved woman and he loved marriage because what is meant by woman here is marriage. He loved marriage, because these women later on would relate to the entire onma the private affairs of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and how he lived as a husband in the house, and there are so many Hadith narrated by the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in where we learn so much about our Deen for these two matters he loved notice he used the word how bidda I love from this world perfu and woman meaning marriage, then the Hadith went up a level. When the result Allahu alayhi wa sallam said was you're a lot poorer to IE

00:06:36 --> 00:06:56

feel solid, you're a net? Or what do I need feel solid, and the delight of my eyes, the coolness of my eyes, the happiness of my eyes, was in the prayer. Now, you see how big and how is one level to love something.

00:06:57 --> 00:07:48

But if you want to express that you love something, Yoni more than just the concept of love, the other word for this is good word twine. In other words muhabba or help is one level or poor twine is a level higher than love. Although I in the development of hammer home Allah they said that when your heart and your eyes are filled with the love of something, so much so that you do not look for anything to replace that thing. That is what could what wine is. So when the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that the prayer was his corporate wine, which is a level higher than the natural love. This is the enth degree of loving something. When he says that he means that I will not

00:07:48 --> 00:07:55

replace or select for anything else. You know, children have been described in the Quran as Allah twine

00:07:56 --> 00:08:39

the Musa alayhis salaam was described for his mother Paulo twine he Sally his salon was described for his mother model in Cape Coral I know how that doesn't work out Rena children Los Angeles is a lot better have learned I mean as well as you know the retina, Coldwater ion Why? Because you will not replace your children with anything else. These are your children. These are your color time, your happiness and the delight and the coolness of your eyes when you see your children. So Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam a solid was his good what why in In other words, you give him the world he will not replace it with a salette nothing can replace a select. This is the level that we want

00:08:39 --> 00:09:30

to reach, how can we reach a level that no matter what was offered to us, we will never accept that in replacement for select. today. So many people have replaced a solid with materialistic matter, right if he has humor, so Latin humor, people miss a Luma because of a worldly job because of some money because of some job that might pay him 1000 or $2,000. He missed selectel Juma because of some materialistic manner, such a person or salette hasn't been over time in his life. For a solid to be called offline in your life, the delight and the coolness and the happiness of your heart and your eye. Meaning you will not replace it for anything. No matter even if the entire world was given to

00:09:30 --> 00:09:56

you. You will never replace it. This is all fine. Is it possible we can reach such a level? Yes of course. Of course we can reach such a level. So listen be if nilay Patel and I'm going to share these points with you and as I mentioned in the description, the lesson is going to take long journey. Be patient with me. If you cannot then be an allow put the recording up and you can hear it later on. My brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:09:58 --> 00:10:00

salette is the

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

Write of Allah subhanho wa Taala and it is one of the greatest rights that belongs to Allah azza wa jal in a Hadith, a woman came to the messenger salallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she said to him, that her mother had died, and she still had one month of fasting. And her mother, she still had one month for mobile and she did not fast. So she came to the Sula sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said the outer Solar law My mother died and she still has one month of Ramadan she did not fast

00:10:35 --> 00:10:39

on her, can I fast this month on her behalf.

00:10:40 --> 00:10:49

So when the bass Allah alayhi wa sallam he said to her, and listen to this, he said, lo gana Allah omega Dane, according to Paul,

00:10:50 --> 00:11:02

Paul v. The beauty of it. If your mother was in debt and she owed someone money, would you have went and paid it on her behalf?

00:11:03 --> 00:11:49

So this woman said yes, I would have paid it on her behalf. That Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said today you know law he had a nuclear bomb. He said that the debt that is owed to Allah deserves more attention deserves more attention. Then if your mother was to owe someone something from this role be life. Yanni the depth of Allah is more important than the depth of people. So as Luna vsam, Allah, Allah He was sending me is telling of course, going fast this month of Ramadan on behalf of your mother that she did not fast, because this is the death of Allah. If you are going to pay back the people money, money that your mother owed, then most definitely go and pay the debt that is owed

00:11:49 --> 00:12:36

to Allah subhanho wa Taala and fast those days on her behalf. So what we learned from this hadith is that the prayer is a rite of Allah zosen the worships that allows sosial obligated upon us and commanded us to do they are the rights of Allah azza wa jal, and we must show concern with the rights of a large version, and we must pay them in full and worship a large version, the way he commanded us to do so. Allahu Akbar. And as I said to you, my brothers and sisters in Islam, people today are missing celestial humor, people are missing selectel Fisher, people are not praying selected a shirt, because of work because of worldly matters, because of a party because of a, a

00:12:36 --> 00:13:21

gathering or an invitation. And they stay up long hours of the night. And then when he gets back home, a lot of solo shows and I grew up and then go to sleep on our luck about what is this? We need to change this kind of behavior and attitude to select, this is wrong. We must respect the rights of a large version and make them one number one in our life. After that your worldly matters come. Number one is the obligations then worldly matters come. You can look after that after after yearning you have achieved or fulfill the rights of Allah so isn't my brothers and sisters in Islam? The Prayer is the right of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:23 --> 00:14:10

it is a man who deem as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described that he said in the Hadith, R mu a solid that the foundation of this Deen of our religion is a solid. This is the foundation. You know, if a house if you remove the foundations of a house, the house would collapse. So in other words, if you remove the prayers from your life, and you don't show concern in your prayers, you know what happens as a result, your entire email would collapse. Your relationship with Allah would collapse. This is the first thing that teaches us the importance of solid in the life of a believer that it is our war to Deen. It's the pillar in the foundation of the religion. It is the first thing

00:14:10 --> 00:14:21

in the first matter that Allah subhanho wa Taala will question us about on the Day of Judgment Lama Kemal. The Hadith goes on to say and if the Salat was correct and perfect,

00:14:22 --> 00:14:59

and there was concerned concerning the prayer, then all the deeds you did are all correct and perfect. All the deeds that you're going to do now, in the 10 days of the yo yo saw the call to notice be Allah Subhana Allah and the goodness that you do all of this is depending on your salette if your solid is given a tick on the Day of Judgment, everything else you did B if nilah is accepted, and it's all good. And if your select was a big cross for him faster that if his prayer was corrupt and it was neglected and you showed no concern towards

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

But everything else you did

00:15:04 --> 00:15:44

is gone to ruin everything else is gone to ruin and it is of no benefit luck about how after you hear this Hadeeth can a person neglect is solid and focus on other things. prioritize my brothers and sisters in Islam and use these 10 Ds of Malaysia to learn your salad and to perfect your salad. You only have 10 days you have now eight days ahead of you as a short training course, to perfect a salad. So that after this you're able to pre Yanni in a good fashion in a manner that allows social deserves. So it is the first thing that we are judged about on the Day of Judgment.

00:15:46 --> 00:15:58

Also, it is L Kuru may also be Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It is the last matter that was all masala Allah Allah He was advised his oma before his death.

00:15:59 --> 00:16:03

Just before he died, the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a solid a solid,

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

a solid meaning commit to the prayers commit to the prayers. And he said it twice. Meaning he emphasized that and this shows its importance.

00:16:17 --> 00:16:33

And Allah subhanho wa Taala he praised those who pray he praised them in the Quran, Allah azza wa jal he set up his Marielle Allah His Salaam, what can a moral level the Salatu was a cat or canine dollarbie model

00:16:34 --> 00:17:21

that is married Allah he said, he used to instruct his family to pray and to give Zakat as a result. Allah Zoysia was pleased with him luck about he earned the pleasure of Allah because he would instruct his family to pray and he used to commit to the prayers. As a result he earned the pleasure of Allah social. Isn't this the purpose of life? Isn't this what we want in life? to own the pleasure of Allah Zoysia there's the path of solid when there is Allah Allah He was sending me sending me off authentic hadith, right in Allahu Allah, you learn from him in a layli for some there were a proper level. May Allah have mercy upon a man who woke up at night and prayed. Then he went

00:17:21 --> 00:17:28

to his wife, and he woke her up. And if she did not wake up, he sprayed water onto her face.

00:17:30 --> 00:18:07

And may Allah have mercy on a woman who wakes up at night and prays and wakes her husband up. And if he does not wake up, she sprinkles water on his face. v. These people earned a laws mercy because of their concern for a solid. This is their concern for a sooner prayer, which is the night prayer and they aren't Allah's mercy for a knuffle prayer that they showed concern in imagine then how much of Allah's mercy would they earn when they would show concern in the obligatory prayer?

00:18:08 --> 00:18:20

law? What about my brothers and sisters in Islam? The more concern you show the sooner prayers and the night prayers. This helps you in developing concern for your obligatory prayers.

00:18:22 --> 00:18:26

And what proves the importance of a site also, this is an introduction

00:18:27 --> 00:19:12

that allows so shall disgraced The one who abandons and neglects or salette loss aversion. He says for holofil embodying harmful, Obama's salat, Allah spoke about people who lost interest in the prayer and they abandoned the prayer completely and they would pray whenever they feel like they would delay these prayers and pray them at the end of their time outside their time. Lord social said about them with the vowel show as a result, they follow the designers they were tested with their designers online, he there is no one on earth that abandons the prey, except that he becomes weak towards his designers, he cannot control himself, he becomes weak. And he submits to his

00:19:12 --> 00:19:28

desires. And he follows a shape on because these are two parts. It's either the path of Allah and you stick firm on it, or you're going to be led to the path of a shape on there's nothing in the middle. There is nothing in the middle at all. It is either this or this

00:19:29 --> 00:19:59

fairly large social disgrace, disgraced, the one who neglected the prayer. And he shows how much Allah social loves this prayer that he disgraced The one who abandoned it. It shows us the concern that a believer is supposed to have for this solid. What was the result of these people that have been in the pros for silphium corner here. They'll be thrown in the IE, they will come in contact with Ray or they is the name of one of the levels in the hellfire.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:03

Well as we let my brothers and sisters in Islam

00:20:04 --> 00:20:33

the greatest pillar of Islam is as solid as possible. Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Hadith booni al Islam Allah Hans Johanna de la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, what you call me solid, economy solid, that Islam was built upon the oneness of Allah azza wa jal and to accept the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam as being the Prophet of Allah, and then it almost Salah to establish the prayer.

00:20:34 --> 00:20:54

Also, what proves the importance of a sled is that allows origin at the beginning you're obligated these prayers 50 prayers, they were 50 prayers at the beginning. You know what that means? This is, this proves the love Allah has for select.

00:20:55 --> 00:21:50

That love initiative initially wanted us to pray 50 prayers, this is the love Allah has for solid and this is how much Allah loves to see a standing in select. Allah loves to see a standing in solid. So the first command was 50 prayers at my servants stand up between my hands 50 times in the day and in the night and pray, but then out of mercy of a loss surgeon, he reduced it from 50 to five prayers and he still gave us the reward of 50 prayers Allahu Akbar. And then we have people that do not see the mercy of Allah azza wa jal in this Hadeeth Rather, they took advantage of this and they neglected five prayers. When in initially it was 50 prayers. That's a mouse love for a sled

00:21:50 --> 00:21:53

that he made it 50 times a day there is nothing in our Deen

00:21:55 --> 00:22:18

that we are commanded to do like a solid, nothing at all, that we repeat every single day and every single night like a salad. Can you imagine this automobile is one see. Zakat is once a year that if you can afford it has us once a lifetime. Never select was supposed to be 50 times a day.

00:22:19 --> 00:22:22

by the mercy of Allah He was reduced to five

00:22:23 --> 00:22:32

and we were rewarded 50 for this proves the love Allah has for solid. My brothers and sisters in Islam. Also,

00:22:33 --> 00:23:04

when Allah subhanho wa Taala listed in Surah mithoon the qualities of the successful people the first quality he mentioned the city of La manana levina handfeel sala de Janeiro and the first quality of the successful believers was that they have poor sure in their sled, can you not? Not the first only there wasn't those who pray, no, pray that's that's that's a matter that's closed. Of course every believer is supposed to pray.

00:23:06 --> 00:23:24

The first quality was that they have in their soul that they are solid is a portrait wine for them. They have reached excellence in their soul that they cannot live without this alert. That is the first quality of the believer before before givings occurred before anything.

00:23:26 --> 00:23:53

How can we neglect this? How can we delay our solet? After he is happy? How can we not show concern in our salon? How can we still rush our prayers, when we know this is the first quality of successful believers, not people that pray. Because that's a given supposed to be praying as a believer? Don't you dare give yourself the chance or the option should I pray Should I pray.

00:23:54 --> 00:24:03

Rather, the first quality was they have sure in their salad. And this takes training and exercise. But if they let you get there,

00:24:04 --> 00:24:13

but listen to the lessons, learn how to pray correctly, how to make the salad or not Why be if the lead you will get there.

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

And then

00:24:17 --> 00:24:44

the last of the qualities of the successful people in that same passage of sudo moon last version said, One Lavina, whom Allah solloway to him, you have your vote, and those who are the who safeguard their prayers, they safeguard them. They don't let any solid slip away from them. They always careful and conscious and cognizant about their prayers. And they pray every prayer on its time.

00:24:46 --> 00:24:54

This was so get me the first quality of successful believers and the last quality, something related to a solid law, high quality

00:24:56 --> 00:24:59

and from the importance of a solid is that Allah saw

00:25:00 --> 00:25:21

commanded Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to instruct his followers and his family to adhere to the prayer. A lot of social said what more like a celerity or slavery rally here, la social commanded the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and told him pray and commend and instruct your family to pray.

00:25:23 --> 00:26:02

lower quality. And finally, are two more points I share with you on the importance of a solid. And that is that Allah and Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam commanded the one who slept through the prayer, or forgot about the prayer to pray it as soon as he remembers it. That's how important it is. That even if you slept by accident, let's say and you slept through solid and fissure, or you slept through solid tonatiuh or whatever it is, then as soon as you wake up as soon as you're open your eyes and you remember a solid Get up, make will do and run to the prayer.

00:26:03 --> 00:26:47

Doesn't this hadith prove how important solid is that even the one who slipped through the prayer or forgot it? He's been commanded to get up and prayed as soon as he remembers it. Not Hello story. It's gone. Yellow wait for the next pray. You know, unlike the other pillars, like Luke, for example, and harsh look at the house for example, if you miss the house, house, you're on the wait for Lexi and musclehead. No, don't wait for the next slot. If you forgot it by accident, get up and play it as soon as you remember it. And finally, what proves the importance of a solid is that it never ever drops in any any circumstance whatsoever.

00:26:50 --> 00:27:03

Never drops any in comparison to all the other Pillars of Islam. They might not be for you. For examples that get it's not for everyone. Zakat is not for everyone.

00:27:04 --> 00:27:11

Zakat is for people who have money, you pays a cat and other people will take yours account. Other people will take this account.

00:27:12 --> 00:27:51

You know, fasting Ramadan is not for everyone. If there's an old man, an old woman or someone that is terminally ill with a chronic illness and he cannot fast, then Hello, fasting drops, he doesn't have to fast feeds a poor person for every day and that's it. Harsh is not for everyone, certainly for the for the person who can afford it financially and is in physical health and is able to do how much otherwise pleasure is not required on your behalf but look at a solid, whether you're sick, you still pre sitting down, lying down. Whether you're traveling pre, whether you're in residence pre

00:27:52 --> 00:27:59

whether you're on the battlefield, there's a solid if you're on the battlefield, it's called solid bone health.

00:28:00 --> 00:28:47

The prayer of the uchealth prayer even one word, pray, pray for in histone pharyngeal and odac manner. If you're on the battlefield, and there is intense fee, Allah azza wa jal commends the believers to pray as they are running regehr learn as you're walking, pray, or look better on your horses and pray on your horse. It does not drop in any circumstance, whether you're sick, whether you're in extreme Fie, whether you're on the battlefield, your life is about to your life is at risk you're about to die. Don't abandon a salad and even for tianyi Allah azza wa jal commends the believers to pray in congregation so that the hope is Allah taught in the Quran, how it's prayed in

00:28:47 --> 00:29:05

congregation. Imagine that if there was one reason to abandon the congregation pray you think it's solid to hope when you're on the battlefield. Yet on the battlefield, your your life is at risk. present in JAMA. How can people then neglect Gemma and the Congregation for the men specifically early?

00:29:08 --> 00:29:58

Even if it's raining, no matter what case it is, you pray, even if there's no water, make them and pray. Even if there's no dirt, let's say and you're stuck in a prison cell and there is no dirt whatsoever. There is no water there is absolutely nothing praying the way you are. Young Allah Hill, or hammer Homer likes blame this in detail. Even if you don't have calls on. Let's say someone stuck in a prison cell and they remove these codes. has no water has no to rub dirt to make their mom, pray the way you are. If you don't know the tipler prayer in any direction. me Give me one instance in Islam where pray is canceled.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:43

In any concerning a specific individual, other than if a woman was to have her periods, or an insane man that has lost his mind, these people, they're not only responsible for solid and they're not accountable for it was a concession from alarm. But other than that when this where would the pressure drop, it never drops. This is enough my brothers and sisters in Islam enough to teach us the importance of the prayer, and why we're supposed to make it our main focus in life. And our lucky my brothers and sisters in Islam, I did not want to start with the six points until I gave this introduction of about half an hour. So that now when you understand the status of a select in

00:30:43 --> 00:31:05

Islam, the position of the prayer in Islam, you will now pay attention to what I will give you have six points. So forgive me for this bit of a long introduction. But now we have Mila Allah, we're going to enter and discuss the six points that one law and by Allah. If these six points

00:31:07 --> 00:31:26

you continuously realize them and recognize them and feel them in your heart and in your mind and in your soul. Before every solid or similar one law he is going to enhance your salette in a way that you have never ever experienced ever.

00:31:28 --> 00:32:20

And be is nilay you've given yourself the opportunity to reach sn excellence insolent. And you've given yourself a chance for a solid three or two I inika. For the prayer to be the coolness and the delight and the happiness of your eye. Just like it was for our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a lot to it, meaning you will reach the level in where you will fall in love with this prayer so much so that you will not replace it with anything in this life, no matter how valuable this materialistic matter was like, well, let's mention these points, write them down, put them on a paper, write point form and summarize. And then make a nice paper and keep it with you. And recall

00:32:20 --> 00:32:37

them before every solid. If you do that for about a week, two weeks, you will memorize them. And you will know that if you ever get distracted in solid for one second, you immediately remember these points and it'll straighten up your attention and your focus in a solid number one.

00:32:39 --> 00:32:58

And that is mesh huddle, loss, the feeling of sincerity, love, the feeling of sincerity, that when you pray, you are praying with sincerity, which means that you are seeking your reward only from Allah and no one else.

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

And you will develop sincerity in your heart and you will strengthen it. When you pray alone when no one is watching you. This is how you're going to develop sincerity in your heart. Pray at night. Pray sooner prays in a room where no one sees you. And that way you're going to develop sincerity. Sincerity means that you are praying and you only want your reward from Allah. You want recognition and appreciation from Allah. You want Allah to praise you and you want to earn a lost love. You're not you don't want people's words, you are not after the people's praise. You don't want the people's appreciation. You don't want the people's reward. You don't care about what people say.

00:33:47 --> 00:34:39

Plus is I don't care what people see. I only care what Allah how Allah who will see me after my prayer. That's what I care about. This is a loss. And the way you're going to develop it. pray a lot in seclusion in private. This is how you will develop and every deed we do in Islam must be Cincy online without sincerity, your deed is gone to waste. This is why this is the first feeling that you're supposed to have in your heart. My brothers and sisters in Islam, this loss, the ending Let me speak about certain situations. Firstly, if you pray with sincerity, meaning as soon as you say Allahu Akbar and before that, as soon as you begin your prayer, in your heart, you should feel the

00:34:39 --> 00:34:46

display is only for Allah. And I do not want anyone's appreciation at anyone's reward only Allah is reward.

00:34:48 --> 00:35:00

This is a loss. If, if midway through your prey, you begin to feel a sense of ostentation, or showing off if you

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

Feel that midway in your prayer

00:35:02 --> 00:35:20

and you find this feeling, you fight this feeling by reminding yourself that this solid is only for Allah and no one else, then your prayer is correct when hamdulillah that showing off, that came midway through your prayer does not affect your prayer whatsoever.

00:35:22 --> 00:35:30

The other situation is, if you began your salad with showing off, your prayer is nullified and canceled altogether.

00:35:31 --> 00:35:33

Your prayer is canceled and nullified altogether.

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

This is what we need to understand sincerity is the first feeling you're supposed to have.

00:35:41 --> 00:36:24

The second you know, and why I mentioned this because there are some people that pray in the presence of others just so others can see. Look, this person prays, Masha Allah, look how long his prayers, look how perfect display is, I wish I can pray like him. And he loves to hear these words. If you're a person like this, and you love to hear these words, you have lost sincerity. But if people praise you for your salad after you have finished, and he did not look for that, and you did not care about what people see, you didn't even want to hear that. The new sncb if Miller, so long as you keep up a fight in your heart, and you begin to suppress a rear and trying to hide it and

00:36:24 --> 00:36:37

trying to destroy it in your heart, then you're so that is good. And this is exactly what sincerity is by number two to reach the level of sn insularis. And what do I

00:36:39 --> 00:37:03

miss shadow or sick? My shadow said that you must be honest, in your solet the feeling of honesty must live in your heart when you pray. What does that mean? How do we achieve honesty in our solid, my brothers and sisters in Islam simple words, I give you simple words a lot. And I want you I want you to

00:37:04 --> 00:37:05

be aware of what I'm saying.

00:37:07 --> 00:37:11

And right these notes down and fill them in your solid.

00:37:12 --> 00:37:22

And tell me later on tell me later on how your solid has improved if it's improved or not. So we can follow up these lessons with a second lesson.

00:37:23 --> 00:37:41

My shadows suck the feeling of honesty in your heart when you come to pray. Simply What this means is that your outward appearance, your outward appearance must match your inward appearance as well. I'll give you an example.

00:37:42 --> 00:38:25

Yanni, when you say Allahu Akbar, which means Allah is greater, and it's not a complete sentence, a lot like a lot is not a complete sentence. You have to complete it. Allah whatever means Allah is greater. Doc, now you fill in the blank. Allah is greater than everything he created. Omar sosial is greater than your worries, Allah is greater than all your distractions. Allah is greater than all your problems. This is what it means. So honesty is for you to say, Allah God. That's what your tongue said. This is what you said from your heart, Allahu Akbar. But is your outside appearance?

00:38:27 --> 00:38:41

matching this statement? In other words, do you really believe Allah is bigger than your problems, and Allah is bigger than everything you own. Because if you really believe that, you will not rush your prayer.

00:38:42 --> 00:38:52

You will not rush. If you believe Allah is greater, you will not rush your prayer. Why? Because whatever you're rushing to Allah is greater than it.

00:38:53 --> 00:39:38

So how can you be saying Allahu Akbar, and then you rush your prayer because of something you think is important, either now here, you're not being honest in your soul, that your Allahu Akbar that you said, You're not being honest with him. Similarly, when you raise your hands, this movement of raising the hand, it symbolizes many things. One of the things it symbolizes is surrender. You know, when someone surrenders, they raise their hand, given up. This is you're surrendering to the commands of Allah azza wa jal before you start, you're praying you're surrendering now And remember, as in the Hadoop so you do still fall part of SQL is still fault. We say what anala deca, deca?

00:39:38 --> 00:39:53

mustapa? Allah, I am doing my best to fulfill that that is between me and you. The agreement that's between me and you. I'm doing my best to fulfill this agreement. What's this agreement? worshipping Allah?

00:39:54 --> 00:39:59

Right? So when you raise your hand, you're surrendering to Allah azza wa jal, you're surrendering. Allahu Akbar.

00:40:01 --> 00:40:04

If you rush your prayer, and you're running to something else,

00:40:05 --> 00:40:51

then you're really not surrendering to Allah social. Or if you're rushing your prayer, so that you can run to a desire or a temptation or something, that is how long you have not surrendered to Allah sosial. As a result, you have not achieved honesty in your salad. Yeah, when you my brothers and sisters in Islam, understand this, let's understand that together. Honesty in solid, meaning what you say and what you do, must match inward and the outward must match together. When you look down, Allahu Akbar, then you look down. This looking down, symbolizes humility, that you're standing before Allah, how dare you just look up like this, put your head down. This is humility. you're

00:40:51 --> 00:40:54

praying to Allah be humbled by him.

00:40:56 --> 00:41:25

And then you need to be humble. honest, this is this is your outward action. And it needs to match your inward journey, your outward appearance, with your head down, and your eyes to the ground. Your outward appearance seems to be humble. But inside your humble inside is your heart filled with humility, or it's filled with arrogance, against the creation of a large version and against the commands of Allah.

00:41:27 --> 00:41:34

Even your outward appearance must match your inward and your inward must also match your outward appearance.

00:41:35 --> 00:42:21

You know, don't really stiff there. So you've began to pray. Now there is a diet that you see before you read sort of unfair to her. And this is one of the Dwyer is was just to watch he really loved the football seminar were you all have a hanifa one animal mushrikeen in masala tea wanna Suki? Wanna hear your alma mater de la Hello bill. I mean, and and this dryer list if there is a long one, I just gave you a quarter of it. But the point is, this dryer list if you know what it says. It says we're chuffed to wish he led the football summer were you on Audible hanifa you are saying literally you're saying Allah, I have turned my face and my attention to the one who created the heavens and

00:42:21 --> 00:42:51

the earth had even and I am inclined to adore hate Islam far away from a ship when the enemy unusually keen, and I am not from those who associate partners with Allah in NA celerity verily my prayer, when no Suki and my rituals and my sacrifice are Mahia in my entire life and every moment in my life, when my morality and even my death is for Allah luck about this is barely stiff that you see that you've you said this.

00:42:54 --> 00:42:56

You said this to her. But is that the reality?

00:42:57 --> 00:43:07

Is that the reality? Have you really faced a last session and given your attention to the one who created the heavens and the earth, as you said?

00:43:08 --> 00:43:11

So remember, or hammer home a lot they said

00:43:13 --> 00:43:30

not only the body is supposed to face the pillar, but your heart must face Allah subhanho wa Taala just like you cannot turn your body away from the Qibla you should not be turning your heart and your attention away from Allah.

00:43:32 --> 00:43:52

Because Allah Dwyer list, if you just said was just too big, I have turned my attention, and my face and my body and my soul to the one who created the heavens in the earth. And then what do we find out that your heart is paying attention to something else?

00:43:53 --> 00:44:06

Your heart is thinking about something else in this worldly life. Your heart is rushing to something of this worldly life even now we have not achieved honesty. Because your words don't.

00:44:08 --> 00:44:17

Match. don't match the state of your heart. As a result, we have lost honesty. My brothers insisted in Islam understand this point.

00:44:19 --> 00:44:27

Understand this point. This is what honesty is. Whatever you're going to do on the outside must match your inside.

00:44:28 --> 00:44:37

If Allah is truly great, and you said Allahu Akbar, then your heart must not be distracted with anything because Allah is greater than it.

00:44:38 --> 00:44:53

Right? And with all the other points as we mentioned, this is how we achieve honesty in our prayer. When you are praying, Allah He my brothers and sisters in Islam when you are praying, Allah is responding to Allah is responding.

00:44:55 --> 00:44:59

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in how the commies are coming in suddenly when any one of you gets up

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

To pray in the Millionaire's Europe, he is having a secret private conversation with a law firm Leon balki for your energy. Danny, in other words, for leonberg key for you energy, how are you going to converse with a law? Now that you know you're standing in conversation with a large social, how are you going to converse with him?

00:45:22 --> 00:45:24

And how can you converse with Allah

00:45:25 --> 00:45:47

when a part of you is doing what is supposed to be done, and your heart is being distracted and turn to somewhere else? Indeed, this is not honesty in select my brothers and sisters in Islam, this is why it is prohibited as well. that a person spit in front of him to be some Allahu alayhi wa sallam forbid this.

00:45:48 --> 00:46:00

Why? Because Allah sosial is in front of you. You are having a conversation with Allah azza wa jal, it's rude to speak. So this is a real conversation, for you need to be honest.

00:46:01 --> 00:46:48

And Subhan Allah, Allah Sojin has made it easy for us that your tongue is moving throughout the entire solid and it does not stop at all. Allah Subhana Allah love more behind the developer gets Miguel de la Buccola smilla rahmanir rahim ineffective vennel surah Allah hotbox pan all the other three times then something Allahu Akbar Allah. Allahu Akbar. None stop your tongue is moving twin the entire time from the moment is until you say a salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah. You know, what doesn't that does, it helps you it helps you remain focused in your select and paying attention in your select. Because you're moving your tongue the entire time, you're not stopping.

00:46:49 --> 00:47:32

Sometimes panela very important that you realize this, you know, I'm speaking to you now. And I have been speaking nonstop for almost 47 minutes. And I'm focused and paying attention. Why? Because I'm talking and you're the one who's listening. You haven't been talking all this time. So most definitely, some of you might have lost some attention with me, even if it was for a minute or two or three minutes, because you're not talking. The one who is talking does not lose attention. How then when we pray, we lose attention when loss Zoysia made for us the entire solid, a movement of the tongue that doesn't stop Morocco, Allahu Allah, how rude the people have not appreciated but

00:47:32 --> 00:48:11

Allah azza wa jal has given them. People are robots now in their solet. And it's being prayed like a habit, you need to restart and run remind yourself of these points that I'm telling you so that you can achieve this excellence in a solid. My brothers and sisters in Islam, honesty, how do we achieve as we on the second point, right? honesty, which is the outward appearance matching your inward appearance, I give you a tip. How do you achieve this, don't rush your prey. Pay attention because when you rush something, you don't pay attention. When you take your time, you begin to pay attention and you focus even if this attention came to you in the second locker or in the third

00:48:11 --> 00:48:15

rocker hamdulillah better, better than this attention not coming all together.

00:48:17 --> 00:49:06

And I tell you how you do this, I told you a secret. How you stop brushing your prayer. Listen, just increase, increase 30 seconds to 60 seconds for each movement of a solid. The antidote is a law called standing. Your normal standing on it another 60 seconds or 30 seconds. Your query see your Aqua just please add 30 seconds to it sounds easy. 30 seconds of Allah here will make a difference in your life. You come back up from record instead of five seconds. People get up somewhere along or have your blog online instead of five seconds. Make them 30 seconds. Make them 30 seconds. Yeah now on your five seconds and 25 seconds.

00:49:09 --> 00:49:33

Allah you're going to notice a difference. And in your suit, AD AD AD 30 seconds. And when you come up from sujood ad 510 seconds, you go back into the ad, get up AD AD at some time just seconds on the telling you minutes. seconds just so you can notice a difference within this week. Now this week that's coming this 10 days of the Asia

00:49:35 --> 00:49:59

at 1020 seconds for each movement of a salad. By the end of 10 days you're going to realize a massive difference. Then begin to upgrade. Go up and increase one minute and then you will know how to deal with this on your own accord. Very important very important to do this. You need to upgrade you need to enhance your salaat you cannot stay praying the same prayer praying my brothers and sisters in Islam

00:50:02 --> 00:50:40

Upgrade upgrade your salad you know people today husband and wife when they're married, they see you need to upgrade you need to upgrade the relationship. So what that means is order no go on a holiday go somewhere refresh do new things right because otherwise this relationship between you and your wife will get boring. Upgraded every few months to do something exciting so you can keep this love and this motivation in this marriage going by a boss so now your relationship with a solid you need to upgrade it so that your love for this solid remains upgrade enhance learn a new look at the reset in our recorder learn.

00:50:41 --> 00:50:50

Learn the complete degree that he said when you stand up after ruku one hour can humble humbug if you're on mobile I can female Samoa diomande

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

Vina Homer will match it to me she in bad, aloof and it will measure the Omega Khan Abdul coluna lacob Allahumma Malema operated Mr.

00:51:01 --> 00:51:14

Dimon conjured. This is the complete form of praise. That is supposed to be said when you rise from a record. One thing you've already given up on yourself. You ever look at this ticket ever again until you die?

00:51:15 --> 00:51:57

If and we need to enhance our solid so our prayer can be honest, we can achieve honesty with Allah azza wa jal in our prayers. The feeling of honesty insularity is important I brothers and sisters in Islam, don't rush your prayer. Anyone who rushes the prayer will never achieve honesty in his salon. You dream you're living up there. Because when you rush you don't pay attention. And when you're not paying attention, you're not being true. And you said a lot. What about remember Lord moment, Allah is greater than everything. Show me. Show me how you believe Allah is greater than everything. When you rush to something, that means you've considered that thing great in your life, and you need to

00:51:57 --> 00:52:05

rush through it as soon as possible. You're not being honest. My brothers and sisters in Islam also, when you pray the prayers on time, you're being honest.

00:52:07 --> 00:52:51

You're being honest. Why? Because you are preferring what Allah loves over what you love. And when you prefer what Allah loves over what you love, you've achieved honesty. Let's take an example. Selecting Fisher time, for leisure time, the body loves to sleep, it loves to rest at the time, just like millions around the world they're doing. But then as soon as you hit Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, you get up. And you say, I'm going to pre select the visual on time. Because Allah loves for me to pray it on time. And my body loves to sleep. But I will prefer what Allah loves. Overall I love you've achieved honesty, congratulations. So that over comes solid over people are busy in

00:52:51 --> 00:53:06

their work, money making business deals, contracts, whatever it is, the disruptions of all the life so you said wait, wait, wait, I love to deal and make money and sell and sign contracts and meet people I love to do this.

00:53:09 --> 00:53:58

I love to go hang out with the boys with the girls, whoever it is only drink a coffee at this time all the time, you know Nanana Okay, this is what I love to do. And Allah wants me to pre select the world. So I give up everything. Am I pre selected board on time. Now, I am preferring what Allah loves over what I love. See that comes on at the loss of time. Everyone's tired, everyone's busy. You just want to keep back on the couch, play with your phone, and read updates and whatever it is people do on their phones these days. But then you remember that Allah is calling me for select the lasso. But I love to relax at us all the time. However, to be honest with Allah, I'm going to prefer

00:53:58 --> 00:54:21

what Allah loves. So I'm going to get up and make oboe and Priscilla to Lhasa. And I'm going to prefer this over what I love. And that is to sit on the couch and doing whatever you do to relax. And same thing goes for when model time comes in window share time comes. By the time you check comes your body just shut down, wants to sleep and you want to relax and enjoy your sleep.

00:54:22 --> 00:54:59

But Allah wants you to pray. So you say all law. I love to sleep now. I'm tired. They're aligned. I went to sleep now. But I know as well. We love you'd love for me that I pray on time. So I'm going to prefer what you love over what I love. And I'm going to pray properly before I sleep. Allahu Akbar. Congratulations if that's your mindset, and that's your attitude and behavior towards a solid. You have achieved honesty, the salette Mahabharat. My brothers and sisters in Islam is a big point. Honesty in your prayer by so these are

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

who have lost sincerity and number two is honesty.

00:55:05 --> 00:55:10

We'll move on to the third point of how a person can

00:55:11 --> 00:55:13

reach the level of Rottweiler.

00:55:15 --> 00:55:24

Third point is listen to this mesh huddle more move by Mashhad will move by the feeling

00:55:25 --> 00:55:33

of praying in the same manner Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed a lot about.

00:55:34 --> 00:55:45

This is what we want. We want you to pray, like how all Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed. This is the feeling you're supposed to have in your salad.

00:55:46 --> 00:55:56

That I am praying the prayer of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I am going to pray it exactly like how he predicted.

00:55:59 --> 00:56:19

You will feel close to the missing just a little while he was and as a result you will feel close to Allah so again, wouldn't it be some Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, Son no camera or a to Mooney or suddenly there is a law of Allah you wa sallam said pray. In the same manner you have seen me pray.

00:56:20 --> 00:56:37

Even the way we pray, is what we saw of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and how he taught us. We are responsible for this. Everyone is responsible to learn to pray how Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed,

00:56:38 --> 00:57:17

we are responsible. On the Day of Judgment Allah azza wa jal will ask Leo moon ad him, they are all mad that he abdominal more saline. This is a question from Allah on the Day of Judgment, Allah who will gather the people and He will say to the nether as you're tuned more serene? How did you people respond to my prophets? How did you people respond to my messages? Did you take your teachings informed and implement them in your life? Or you neglected and ignored and you said someone else will do it on my behalf? How was your response to the messenger?

00:57:18 --> 00:57:40

Allah azza wa jal, he says, felonious alumna, levina, oral sila lay him while an S and an L mursaleen. You will be questioned, the messengers will be questioned, and the followers will be questioned, you will be questioned, did you pray in the same manner Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught you or not.

00:57:41 --> 00:57:54

Or it's just something like you saw your parents pray and you never enhanced your knowledge about a solid. One normal law, it's a crime. It's a crime, to neglect knowledge of a solid

00:57:55 --> 00:58:08

because a prayer is obligatory upon each and every single one of us. And the principle in Islam is that if a deed is obligatory, seeking its knowledge is obligatory.

00:58:09 --> 00:58:47

So we cannot neglect the teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. How many people around the world pray wrong? Because they did not make an effort to learn how to pray correctly. How no money one lady in the 1000s there is not a Masjid I have entered, except that I see someone dressed in a wrong way. He's always showing for example, his back. You know the common mistake of making little cooler, and then he shot fires up and half his backside is showing. He's always showing your praise invalid.

00:58:50 --> 00:58:56

who's who's responsible for this? Who I meet someone else? No one is responsible but you

00:58:58 --> 00:59:02

because you choose to remain ignorant and not learn your salad.

00:59:04 --> 00:59:15

My brothers and sisters in Islam. I mentioned this point about learning how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed, but I won't leave the point hanging here. I will tell you this and direct you to a good source.

00:59:17 --> 00:59:59

Learning how to pray is a fucking matter. It's in the books of Islamic jurisprudence. There is an excellent book write this down. It is called Sleaford solid Navy prophets prayer described prophets prayer described it is a book made up of about 170 pages for Mmm, l Bernie or hemma. Hello, Diana. And may Allah reward him for his effort. He wrote a beautiful simple book in Arabic. He called the prayer of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or more specifically, it's translated as prophets prayer described. Yeah, he purchase it.

01:00:00 --> 01:00:22

Go and buy it and read it with your family. Read it once, twice, three times. Until you master how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam read your whiny my brothers and sisters in Islam or even in the peace love Allah He was a lamp. Even he was taught by eg Breen how to pray.

01:00:24 --> 01:00:25

You know when you breathe in,

01:00:27 --> 01:01:05

when in a bizarre senemo, still Mecca gibreel came, and he led the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in prayer, he led him twice in prayer, all the prayers. And he said to him, this is how you pray. This is how you pray. And this is your prayer, and the prayer of your mama that comes after you. Even a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam learned how to pray. So, so how can you remain ignorant on the matter of solid, going by yourself this book, and read it and understand and if you have questions, ask, ask, ask and learn how to pray.

01:01:07 --> 01:01:20

The whole lower poverty level their journey, it's sometimes it's upsetting that the solution is they read the book, ask your questions, at least the fundamentals the obligations of your deed.

01:01:22 --> 01:01:23

Learn how to pray,

01:01:24 --> 01:01:28

so that you can experience select also only learn

01:01:29 --> 01:01:45

as you pray. And that way, you are coming closer and closer in order to achieve in what time you're coming closer to closer to having this experience, that the prayer will be the coolness and the delight and the comfort of your eye.

01:01:46 --> 01:02:20

And you know, by the way, I just want to share one point here is probably a side note. And that is something concerning the prayer of a woman. And you know, there's always this debate, ongoing debate just doesn't stop. And there's always questions about this. Does a woman have to cover her foot when she prays or not? We all know this matter. It's always comes up from time to time. Yeah, my brothers and sisters in Islam volume was more specifically my sisters in Islam. Listen and pay attention to what I'll say about this matter. I will say at once and I won't repeat it.

01:02:23 --> 01:02:44

Yeah, any Elysium Ward, the majority of lemme see that the entire body of a woman must be covered when she prays except her face and hands. So that means the majority opinion is that the foot must be covered. That's number one. Number two, China gets serious

01:02:45 --> 01:03:09

mahabali molokhia with habel molokhia, the melachim of hub and a Sheffield EMF hub, two giants of Islam, two big motherhood in Islam. They said their opinion is that if a woman prayed with her foot uncovered, then her prayer is invalid.

01:03:11 --> 01:03:20

amalickiah said that if she is still within the time of solid, she must repeat her prayer while her foot is covered.

01:03:22 --> 01:03:25

When he marries Sheffield, he also said the same thing.

01:03:26 --> 01:03:51

Yanni, what I want to say now is and I'm not here to debate the matter. We're lucky I'm not here to debate the matter. I know there are opinions in where it is fine, and no problems a woman can pray with her foot uncovered, and that it does not invalidate her brain. Her prayer is correct. But I'm going to see this. We all know that the first matter that is questioned on the Day of Judgment is a solid.

01:03:52 --> 01:04:36

Since you know it's the first matter question. And that the safest opinion is to cover your foot. It only takes two three seconds to wear socks. Then why? Why do you keep asking this question and avoiding this matter? Put your socks on and pray with peace. Right. I just wanted to mention this as a side point, if we know that the Salah is the first thing that is questioned on the Day of Judgment. Let's just go and pray correctly and just avoid the difference of opinion. Even though we respect the difference of opinion, hmm. And if any, if a woman that is listening to me now has studied a Sharia and her teacher has taught her that it is fine. And it's permissible to pray

01:04:36 --> 01:04:59

without the foot being covered. And if that's what you learn, and your prayer is correct, and it's not invalid. I respect that. No problems continue if this is what you believe continue to issue and I'm just seeing the safer opinion on Huawei. The safer opinion is cover since the solid is the first thing that is questioned and add to that too great images in Islam.

01:05:00 --> 01:05:02

I mentioned that the prayer is invalid,

01:05:04 --> 01:05:38

if the foot is uncovered laquan even that is the third point, learning feeling feeling for select of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And you know I can mention a story here on this point, something beautiful a lie only our teachers will really matter or Mr. Mullah, have mentioned the story that happened between share of embarrass or himolla will mm and Bernie shuffle and Bernie will have a whole lot of interest. They mean for him a whole lot. Three contemporary memes giants in Islam.

01:05:39 --> 01:05:47

They were in Minar during the Hajj, time in Mina, and it was time for a solid. Look at the humility Allahu Akbar among them.

01:05:48 --> 01:05:57

So it was time for a salad and you have three year old MA in one setting, who's going to lead the prayer. Who's gonna lead the prayer. So

01:05:59 --> 01:06:09

they mentioned that shift a bit of a mean should pray because he's the most knowledgeable concerning fucker. So they sit there and go and pray. Amen.

01:06:10 --> 01:06:46

Then chef Abernathy Minh refused, refused. And he said, a chef. Alberni is more knowledgeable in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because that was his speciality. He was yearning he was his knowledge was deep in a Hadith, so they agreed emammal Alberni is going to pray. So he stepped forward to pray. And then he looked back, and he said to share Eben Bez Should I pray Should I lead the people out will suddenly be in salata, rasulillah and

01:06:47 --> 01:07:34

he said shekel and belly. He said to share the mess. Should I lead the people and pray and pray the prayer of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or should I need the prayer light and easy? La Jai Kumar, a scholar is asking this other school Shekar bugbears, he answered the shuffle Alberni look at the humility and he said to him, I lymnaea key for salata. rasulillah is sitting Teach us how did the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pray and it was an incredible solid that the the people that narrate the story, they see it was an incredible solid day. Yanni my brothers and sisters in Islam who you don't have to live in Hollywood to think something like this. Learn how masala masala

01:07:34 --> 01:07:58

Mohan he was sitting and prayed. And you will have the same experience that those who prayed on that day behind the shekel and then he had and then even better, you will pray as though you are praying behind Rasulullah sallallahu isn't what a beautiful prayer was lacking any when you choose to remain ignorant? How how's your salad going to enhance? How are you going to feel sweetness in your salad? How

01:08:00 --> 01:08:06

they're how they would have caught the level. May Allah azza wa jal teachers milazzo shall make it easy for us to learn how to pray.

01:08:08 --> 01:08:20

My brothers and sisters in Islam, the fourth matter and the fourth life changing point. And the fourth feeling you're supposed to have in your heart when you pray is mush huddle.

01:08:22 --> 01:08:23

mush huddle is

01:08:24 --> 01:08:37

the feeling of excellence in salette What does this mean? My brothers and sisters in Islam said is a high level it is higher than Islam and amen it is the highest level.

01:08:39 --> 01:09:00

So much so that allows origin said in the Quran Allah who was in in Allah loves the mercy mean those who have reached the level of sin. How do we achieve excellence? How do we achieve this feeling of excellence in our prayer? Very simple. The hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes to teach us this.

01:09:02 --> 01:09:19

When a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked what is he said? He said and Barbuda, la Hakka at NACA tala for lm Taekwondo for in New York, even sn is two levels. One is to worship Allah as though you can see him

01:09:20 --> 01:09:23

to worship Allah. As you can see him

01:09:26 --> 01:09:43

and the one who worships Allah as though he can see him with his heart. Such a person will pray out of love and passion and excitement. The second level of said is for ylim decanter all in Iraq.

01:09:44 --> 01:09:50

If you cannot see him, and you cannot have this feeling of seeing a lot with your heart,

01:09:51 --> 01:09:59

then the second level of concern is to know and be certain that we'll look and see you and the one who was

01:10:00 --> 01:10:17

Allah, on the basis that Allah can see him. Such a person worships a law, out of fear of loss of vision. You understand the Hadith two levels, the highest level of sn is to worship Allah as a low you, you yourself can see him

01:10:19 --> 01:10:28

not Allah can see you know that you're on another level. You're worshipping Allah as though you can see him as though you have witnessed Allah

01:10:29 --> 01:10:36

made this a you know, journey a shared attain the two testimonies of our Islam what was the first word in them?

01:10:37 --> 01:10:51

I should shadow you know what a shadow means? A shadow Allah ilaha illa Allah, you know, they translated a bear witness and testify bear witness. A shadow comes from the word shahida. To see something

01:10:52 --> 01:11:18

to see something with your eyes. No, we did not say Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. I know. You come to La ilaha illa Allah we did not say that. We said a shadow. You're saying I bear witness with my own eyes, that there is no Lord worthy of worship but Allah as though you saw it. This is the kind of Eman uncertainty we have to have in our Diem.

01:11:19 --> 01:11:36

So so that's the ID, and double the look and Nikita law as though you can see him. You have to worship Allah as though you can see him. Now you will reach the level of excellence. My brothers and sisters in Islam.

01:11:40 --> 01:11:52

Yanni let me say something, when you pray, you're in a real meeting with Allah. This is why you cannot sit down during the prayer while all the quantity Get up.

01:11:53 --> 01:12:01

You cannot talk in a salad. Because you're seeing law with your heart. You're in a real meeting with Allah.

01:12:02 --> 01:12:09

This is why we're not allowed to sit in our salad for no reason your salad is invalid if you said

01:12:11 --> 01:12:17

we're not allowed to talk to anyone in our salad. You're not allowed to look left and right.

01:12:18 --> 01:12:20

Because Allah is in front of you.

01:12:21 --> 01:12:29

We're not allowed to eat and drink. You're not allowed to look up. The re Salalah alayhi wa sallam warmed

01:12:30 --> 01:12:41

that people should not look up otherwise Allah Who will take their site. What an incredible warning. Why? You because you're not respecting the fact that Allah is in front of you.

01:12:42 --> 01:13:22

So what did we say? We said you're not allowed to sit when you're able to stand. You're not allowed to talk to anyone. You're not allowed to look left and right. You're not allowed to look up. You cannot eat you cannot drink if someone spoke to you, you cannot answer him. You cannot speak in front of you. That is a heavy filet unmittelbar rG do not speak in front of you. And if you have to speak if there's film, then to your left to your left or in your clothing and just take it away in this manner because allies in front of you. You cannot look left and right and unhappy from the reason Allahu Allah salami said that in the lie. morrocan The Salat Allah commanded you to pray for

If you turn left and right, Allah Zoysia turns away from you, Allahu Akbar. Why why all of this why all of these restrictions in a salad? Allah is helping us realize the fact that we are in a conversation with Allah. So don't move don't eat, don't drink, don't sit, don't look left and right. Don't talk don't respond to anyone. Don't spit in front of you don't look up at this. And the reason Allahu

01:14:08 --> 01:14:33

alayhi wa sallam he said in the Hadith is that the third about how to come off video editing for solid felly acha wimauma stop off in the ship on a whole, even when you want to yawn, and maybe sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said if one of you wants to yawn, and he's insulated, then suppress it as much as you can. Get rid of it, suppress it wake up.

01:14:35 --> 01:14:59

Home, hold media wake yourself up. Stop yawning in a solid fitness shape on alcohol because the shape one would enter Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Can he why why why stop yawning when it's a natural thing, that because you are standing before a law and it is rude. That now now if two people if a human being if you went to a job interview

01:15:00 --> 01:15:20

You'd be embarrassed to yawn in front of him now. What's next? That's a human being and you're embarrassed to yawn in front of them. However in a salad, how then in a salad Do you dare to own finale sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said suppress this morning as best as you can.

01:15:22 --> 01:15:56

lockable Allah lovely my brothers and sisters in Islam, all of these restrictions in a sled, because we are actually in a real conversation with long hair will love we in a real conversation. That's why I'm telling you miss Schauble. Yes, sir. feeling of excellence you will only reach this when you actually believe it. That you can see love with your heart and acknowledge that Allah is seeing you and that you're in a real meeting with Allah, you are talking to a law and guess what Allah is responding.

01:15:58 --> 01:16:42

As in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hadith could see Allah azza wa jal he said, whenever the servant says and humbling learning or belie aalameen Allah responds to the servant and says hamadani Abdi, my servant has praised me. Then you say, Emmanuel Rahim, Allah would say Earth now Allah yap de, my servant has over praised me, nearly killed me, Dean, Allah would say measured any update. My servant has exalted MI, Allahu Akbar, Allah talks back and responds. The only thing is, we cannot hear it. But we can see it remember in our hearts, and we can feel it

01:16:43 --> 01:16:54

Subhana Allah, this is my shadow sn my brothers and sisters in Islam, especially sn is huge. Allah He my brothers and sisters in Islam.

01:16:55 --> 01:17:03

When you know that you are in front of Allah, you are talking to Allah and Allah he's responding one law he when you notice,

01:17:04 --> 01:17:15

with what attitude, and heart and with what emotion Will you now see, and hamdulillah help me out what you're going to see.

01:17:16 --> 01:17:45

After all, this after now, realizing the secret behind all these restrictions in a solid, it's just so it can help you focus and pay attention to Allah. After you know all this. How are you now going to say Alhamdulillah? Help blind me With what heart? With what attitude? With what emotion? Are you going to see a Latin delaire All praise belongs to Allah, a one like you're going to remember everything Allah has done for you and you're going to see Lamborghini.

01:17:46 --> 01:17:49

With what emotion and feeling Are you going to say, Oh, man.

01:17:52 --> 01:17:58

It's not going to be casual anymore. You know, your last solid? How did you say Alhamdulillah? Alhamdulillah

01:17:59 --> 01:18:01

did not care about what it means.

01:18:03 --> 01:18:06

Why? Because you did not realize you're in a real conversation with Allah.

01:18:08 --> 01:18:10

But when you start realizing this,

01:18:11 --> 01:18:13

the way you see our manual

01:18:14 --> 01:18:18

is going to be way different to how you said it in your previous prayers.

01:18:19 --> 01:18:30

That when you're going to see Maliki Oh me, Dean. Yes, you are talking to the one who owns the Day of Judgment. Yes. Yeah, well, like you're talking to him and he can hear you.

01:18:32 --> 01:18:53

And then by the time you get to he can about you're going to feel a sense of power that all along. I am humbled unless you give me the opportunity for me to declare with the tongue you created er Cannot you alone we worship and I don't worship anyone beside you.

01:18:55 --> 01:18:59

You reaffirm reaffirming your belief in along with the word Yak anabat.

01:19:00 --> 01:19:03

And Allah is hearing it Allah is hearing it.

01:19:05 --> 01:19:09

And Allah is saying heavily active on the abdomen son,

01:19:10 --> 01:19:11

llama camel.

01:19:12 --> 01:19:13

Even this is said

01:19:14 --> 01:19:24

this is said my brothers and sisters in Islam to worship Allah as you can see him to believe that you are in an actual conversation with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:19:26 --> 01:19:59

And as I told you, all those restrictions and all what we have been forbidden, you know, select is helping us remember that we are in an actual meeting with Allah. So in the same manner, if you are speaking to your boss in an interview, job interview, or you're speaking with a king or a big leader or someone that's important, in the same manner, you will not turn left and right you will not talk to someone else you will not look up. You will not speak in front of you. In the same manner you do that to a human being, then do the same thing and even better

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

When you're standing before Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:20:04 --> 01:20:27

and what is the result of excellence? What is the result of their said if you pray with this attitude and this feeling, what's the result? And Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, as in the hadith of available sadhana, probably Allah one who is so knowledgeable solid for at the model cuando su Judah, all at a solid haffi vaca la who can have your bunny Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, either so now

01:20:29 --> 01:21:16

if a person was to perfect his solid, perfect his prey, perfected for at the mall require he perfected little couture and the suit and the standing of the prayer and every aspect of the prayer, the prayer the after the prayer the prayer would see how feel like Allah can now have your money, your prayer will make it right for you. You will see Allah protect him in the same manner he protected me look after him in the same manner he looked after me photographer in the prey is raised to a loss aversion without a cell solid and if you ruin the prey, if you ruin that and you showed no excellence in your prayer from YouTube, Morocco and how is that done? You did not perfect the

01:21:16 --> 01:21:23

record. Your record was my person Allah Allah Mohammed, what else should I have and you did not perfect your soon.

01:21:24 --> 01:21:36

You are like how Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described the prayer of the moon ethic that he picks up the ground just like a chicken picks up the ground. Meaning up and down, up and down. That's a solid.

01:21:37 --> 01:21:57

If you ruin your prayer, you did not achieve excellence in the standing in a record in a suit or select after you pray or select would say bye yada Allahu Allah your attorney. May Allah ruin your affairs in the same manner you ruin me

01:21:58 --> 01:22:08

or select makes it against such a person not only there but they listen to what happens for to lefou Kamiya Yuna phobal hunt

01:22:09 --> 01:22:42

for your ballclub. We'll be here with you who and then your prey is tied up. It's wrapped it's wrapped. Like how a ruin shirt is wrapped and that it is thrown in your face. That's here. That is what you deserve for ruining a salad. It's like Didn't you respect the fact that you're standing before Allah you didn't respect the fact here take a salad in your face and it's thrown in your face

01:22:43 --> 01:23:00

it's through thrown in the face of the one who did not respect the fact that he is standing before a lot. Now my brothers and sisters in Islam and that is serious there's nothing harsh here. The matter is serious if there's one thing you need the perfect in your life is it's a celeb nothing else.

01:23:01 --> 01:23:48

Worthy This is why when your select is perfect everything else in life falls in place. Well law, you understand Can you understand what I'm saying? Because when your select is perfect in the manner that I've described to you, and there's still two more points imagine how good your affairs would be an outside life now. So good, so good. And as I told you, my brothers and sisters he slept in this heartbeat now that I shared with you. It proves once again not everyone who did the actions of solid is considered someone who prayed look at in the case of the one who did not show interest in his salad and did not perfect the Roku and sujood understanding his prayer was thrown in his face. He

01:23:48 --> 01:23:53

did the actions of salad but he did not pray is not considered of those who prayed.

01:23:55 --> 01:24:31

Whoa, hold on a porter Lola. The fifth feeling we're supposed to have is Mashhad Minh. What Michael Mashhad will mean now must be pumping in your heart before a solid. You need this. What is this? It's to feel and to realize that the prayer is a favor from Allah to you. It's Allah's gift to you. Allah guided your salat, not the other way around. It's not you it's not your favor to Allah. No.

01:24:32 --> 01:24:59

Don't ever feel like it is not your fever to Allah. No. It is a lowest fever upon you. This is Misha Dooley Mina, you must realize when you realize this Messiah, you're a step closer to experiencing a solid as being put to iron in for you as being the coolness and the delight of your eyes, just like it was for a smaller loss on the law Hilson Michel de Mina or Sahaba the can

01:25:00 --> 01:25:32

honeymoons over a loved one home. They used to sing a line of poetry. This line of poetry says Lola lahoma the dinner one sub doc now Selena, it means had it not been for Allah, we would have never been guided and we would have never given in charity and we would have never prayed like one. So a select is a law's gift upon you. It is a loss fever upon you. Not your fever to alarm on doesn't need your prayer.

01:25:33 --> 01:25:39

And the people of the paradise when the believers enter the paradise We ask Allah azza wa jal to make us from among them,

01:25:40 --> 01:25:43

they will see and this is mentioned in sort of an hour off,

01:25:45 --> 01:26:36

they will see humbly lay he loves he had there nearly have one canal in the Alola and had an Allah they will see All praise belongs to Allah, the One who guided us to this to this jedna to this paradise, had it not been for Allah, we would have never been guided to this paradise and to Islam never ever would have been guided. Allah Zoysia he says in the Quran, Yamuna Allah can Islam, Allah tamanu Allah Islam acoem Bonilla, yamano la comunidad comely amen in kuntum saw the pain, la soldierly says at the end of solten hos Europe, they the the veterans, the Arabs that accepted Islam, they think they have done you Oh prophet of Allah a favor by becoming Muslims. say to them

01:26:36 --> 01:26:50

respond, do not consider your Islam a favor to me, is not a favor to me. Rather, it is Allah who has done you a favor by guiding you to eat man.

01:26:51 --> 01:27:10

It is Allah who made you and give you and guided you to this evolve, amen. Now, that's the reality. This is a mash head. This is what you're supposed to feel in your salad as you pray. It's not by your power. It's not by your ability. It's not and I also it's not your favorite or loan.

01:27:12 --> 01:27:36

It is a last fever upon you is what a lung guided you to look at the door of Ibrahim alayhis salam, he said a better version muslimeen illa. Allah made me and my son is married, submit to because they know them on their own accord they cannot It is Allah who makes them Muslims.

01:27:38 --> 01:27:54

He said Ibrahim in his other dryer are busy. People solid. Allah enable me Make me of those who pray. Even Ibrahim realizes that when he gets up to pray it lowers fever upon him. And Allah subhanho wa Taala he says,

01:27:56 --> 01:28:48

well maybe could be near met in feminine law. Every fever that you have been given it is from a law and guidance is the greatest of blessings or solar is the greatest of breast blessings therefore it came from Allah. And you know, when you pray, you see, so open levina anon Da Li him, guide me to the path of those whom you bestowed your favor upon. Then you're reminding yourself in us on Earth, that a solid is a laws favor upon you. It's not you doing Allah a favor? What does it need your favor laws Zoysia Lee says in the Quran, when I kinema Habiba la como email was a yellow houfy Apolo become, it is Allah who made the love of a man in your heart, and he decorated it and beautified it

01:28:48 --> 01:28:52

in your heart. You must feel this in your heart as you pray.

01:28:53 --> 01:29:12

And it is so important to have this feeling alive in your prayer. What feeling in brief is the feeling of it is a lot the praise Allah is fever upon you. What's the benefit of that when you feel this? Number one, it prevents arrogance from developing inside your heart. When you know that it is Allah.

01:29:14 --> 01:29:53

That is Allah who favored and showered you with the blessing of a solet you cannot develop arrogance in your heart anymore. What are you going to develop arrogance for? When you acknowledge its allowance fever upon you, you cannot develop arrogance anymore. So that's one thing. And the other benefit is it motivates you. And it promotes you and it encourages you to continuously praise loss aversion. And you'll never ever praise yourself ever again. You'll see at Al Hamdulillah Allah that you guided me to a solid and you made me from among a few that prix around the world. Lola Hey Lola

01:29:54 --> 01:29:55

and this is

01:29:57 --> 01:29:59

an is actually perfect a poster

01:30:00 --> 01:30:20

Heat. This is perfect a person's story, you will never achieve complete the heat unless you acknowledge with your heart and with your tongue, that it's a loss fever upon your soul that is a loss fever upon you. And that you have been guided to be from among those who pray. And you know from a last names is a solid.

01:30:21 --> 01:30:56

A solid, a solid means you need a lawyer he doesn't need you from his name is Allah honey, he's the rich, he's a rich, and honey means he doesn't need anyone because he's rich. Also from his names is alimony, the enricher Not only is rich, but he gives people from what from from his blessing subhanho wa Taala. So he does need your worship. He's a solid, his leadership, his family, he doesn't need your worship. You know, it's strange sometimes when people they praise they're solid right alongside one after the fact that

01:30:59 --> 01:31:25

he's reading a clause. He's reading a short order quickly so he can rush the prayer and finish the prayer quick. And he did not realize when he said Allah whole summit, that within our Samad there is a reason for why you shouldn't have rushed to pray. Yet and more solid means the one who is not in need of you and your worships. Is this the solid you're going to give Allah? Allah doesn't need that.

01:31:26 --> 01:31:47

So you read Allah has solid and within the word of solid. If you only pondered over what you said, you would have said and question yourself, why did I rush the prayer? If Allah is a solid, which means he doesn't need anything from us? He doesn't need this prayer right now. Why am I rushing? Why are you rushing your prayer? Do you think Allah needs it?

01:31:49 --> 01:31:59

Now so much told you that he doesn't need it. Rather you are in need of His mercy and acceptance. So praise the way he deserves. So Pamela,

01:32:02 --> 01:32:06

final and the sixth point on how to achieve

01:32:08 --> 01:32:11

the level of corporate wine

01:32:12 --> 01:32:18

and that is mush hadoo duck soup. What is it, my shadow duck seal.

01:32:19 --> 01:32:57

And that is to feel and acknowledge in your heart, that you have many shortcomings in your prayer. As a matter of fact, all the worships that you do, you have shortcomings in them. And concerning the rights of Allah, we have a lot of shortcomings. And you need to feel this in your heart in order to achieve or what why in, in order for this prayer to be your own work right? To be your delight and coolness and happiness of the eye. You must feel and recognize and acknowledge in your heart that your prayer is full of shortcomings is a lot of error and wrong in your prayer.

01:32:59 --> 01:33:08

Like even if you exerted all effort, and you prayed the best on earth in your life, you still must acknowledge there are shortcomings in this pray.

01:33:09 --> 01:33:19

There is one second perhaps your last attention could be of course it could be that that one second that one moment you lost attention. That's your shortcoming in your solid.

01:33:21 --> 01:34:07

You know we are speaking about laws rights here. Who can dare to say I gave Allah his rights in full? Who can there after a prayer to say yes, I prayed 100% according to what Allah wants from me, who dares to do this? No one. So acknowledge from the very beginning and feel and realize from the very beginning of a salette that your prayer is full of shortcomings full of shortcomings, the quality my brothers and sisters in Islam, one law even if you spent an entire life time ensued, from the moment you were born until the moment you died, you are in Suzhou did not raise your head up you did not eat you did not drink he did not do anything at all, is impossible. But let's say that

01:34:07 --> 01:34:20

happen, you will still have shortcomings concerning your worship with a loss of Hannah horadada hair loss End of story we are shortcomings. This is why after a solid we see a stellar federal law.

01:34:22 --> 01:34:59

And the best version is to see a star Thor law what a Tobu la that's the best version to see a Stanford Allah what a to LA and the short version is to salestone for a lot of stuff and a lot of stuff for the law three times. But the best is to say a strong federal law to really strong federal law to really stand for the law to really three times why because a Stanford Allah, you're seeking a loss forgiveness from the shortcomings that took place in a salon. And at the same time, what do we really you're announcing your tober and your return to Allah subhanho wa Taala Do you realize this

01:35:00 --> 01:35:40

Then after every prayer, we say Stanford Allah, why is it because of a sin we committed? No. We say a stole federal law, to patch, the shortcomings and the errors that took place in our select in hope that a lot of social will Polish our prayer and make it perfect 100%. So after the prayer, when you say a stump for lower to really three times, you're supposed to realize that you are in need of Allah, wiping away your sins, and forgiving your shortcomings. More than you are in need of reward, and has an ad for this prayer.

01:35:41 --> 01:35:51

You're in need of Allah forgiving your shortcomings after this prayer more than you are in need of reward and hazard for the prayer.

01:35:52 --> 01:35:54

That's what you're supposed to realize after a salad

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


01:35:59 --> 01:36:28

and even Allah who my brothers and sisters in Islam, even if we prayed the way a lot once, and it was 100% let's say for argument's sake, I'm saying. And let's say our prayer had no shortcomings whatsoever, then, do you still deserve any reward? Do you think you deserve reward? No, you didn't deserve any reward? Why? Because you're a slave of Allah. And a sleeve must be his master.

01:36:30 --> 01:36:38

And he must be in service of his master. And a slave cannot ask for reward. That's not right. You cannot ask.

01:36:39 --> 01:37:27

It's not your right to ask your master give me reward. Danny, take your world, the example. Let's see there's a sleeve. And he did work for his master. Right, a slave and he did work for the master. And then let's see, the slave asked the master, can you give me some money for the service? What would people would label that slave as being insane and crazy? You're a slave. You have to be in service of your master. You cannot ask for reward in conversation. You cannot Subhanallah and this worldly man I gave you in reality, the actual master and the slave both of them are slaves to Allah Zoysia. So now imagine, Allah azza wa jal is our master, he's our job, and we are slaves of his.

01:37:28 --> 01:37:42

So as a slave, we don't have the right to say, well, Lord, give us reward. When you're a slave. Do the work of a sleeve, you're in service of your master, you should be worshipping Allah.

01:37:43 --> 01:38:28

And if this if the master decides to give you a reward, it's not because you deserve it. It's because he's being generous. subhanho wa Taala. This is why in obese Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, none of you will enter the paradise. See, the Paradise is a reward. None of you will get the reward of a lion enter the Paradise by his deeds and his actions. Now, why? Because wear sleeves and as a sleeve, we're not supposed to ask for reward for our deeds. So none of you will enter the paradise because of your deeds, the good deeds that you did. They were the right of Allah, they were the right of your master. You had to do them.

01:38:29 --> 01:38:37

Not even the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as in the Hadith, then there is a law Alejo Samson inlay at the hamadani level there are many men who have

01:38:38 --> 01:39:32

only if Allah was to encompass me with his mercy, with his grace with his blessing. Then I enter the paradise. And this is how we enter the Paradise by the generosity of Allah and His mercy, we enter the paradise, not with our deeds, because I told you and I repeat to our deeds, you have to do them for a law because you're a slave. Surely you think a slave just sits on the side and does nothing. You're a slave, nom hamdulillah. So do what a slave is supposed to do for his master. And don't you dare ask or believe that you're entitled to some reward. ask Allah reward humbly, a lot or give you not because you deserve it. But because he Subhana Allah is Al Karim is the generous one.

01:39:34 --> 01:39:41

We want to reach the level of Sure. You want to reach the level of your said you want to reach the level in where a solid becomes corporate why in the coolness of your own you want that power, you really think you're going to get that in one minute in one second.

01:48:18 --> 01:48:30

My brothers and sisters in Islam, this is the life this is how it is a few more. These are all gone. What are people running after? What do people want? Why do people rush their worship? What are you running after?

01:48:31 --> 01:48:59

What is it you know what people want? They want happiness. Everyone is in pursuit of happiness. Everyone wants just a peace of mind. Comfort, and happiness isn't a true, everyone wants this. If that was through money, then you work hard and he makes money so that this money could get him happiness. If it was marriage, then he will get married and he's marrying in the intention that this wife or this husband is going to get them happiness. Everyone is after happiness.

01:49:00 --> 01:49:26

And we're going to find happiness oximetry let one lie he the one who looks for happiness. The one who looks for happiness, and does not pray, pray, will never find happiness. Live no he's looking in the wrong directions. The true happiness is in your relationship with Allah and your relationship with a long is your relationship with a solid plan

01:49:27 --> 01:49:30

for happiness is sought in these various

01:49:31 --> 01:49:36

phases. Don't be saying I'm looking for happiness Michael you're not praying you will not find it.

01:49:37 --> 01:49:59

Don't run after the luxuries of this life. And brand names and designer clothing and perfect you know brand name shoes like what's taking the people today by storm. Don't run after the luxuries of this life. Don't Don't run after them. They have been put in front of us as a fitness Allah

01:50:00 --> 01:50:03

They have been put in front of us as a fitna.

01:50:04 --> 01:50:24

How crazy people are, they make a lot of money. Then they spend it buying a designer shirt, which cost maybe three $400. And some brand shoes that cost them seven $800. And then after a few months or a few years, it goes into the beam

01:50:26 --> 01:51:11

led CD cycle. This is exactly what is meant when Alonzo gel said, Amen hair to dunya elaborate on that this will be life is only a deception. How is it a deception, this is how it's a deception. You work, work, work work, you make money, you spend it on something that weren't last, and then you throw it in the bin? Wouldn't it have been wiser to buy something that covers your body? Something anything humble that covers your body are never seen that brand and expensive clothing is how long? I'm not saying that. But I'm seeing for the one who cannot afford it and puts himself in this kind of mess and financial difficulty and borrows money and so on to live a luxurious life on the expense

01:51:11 --> 01:51:21

of others and it destroys What wouldn't have been easier for you to cover your body in simple clothing and use your money in something else that is productive.

01:51:23 --> 01:51:38

Last Zoysia he said, Well, I could add the neck a sub i mean in my 30 we gave you all at the fair to have one full anilao even we gave you the why. And then Allah said let them deny an ache. Don't stretch your eyes to that which we have given them in this lovely life.

01:51:39 --> 01:51:46

Don't stretch your eyes out to the luxuries of this life. Why? Because we've given you the

01:51:47 --> 01:52:07

we've given you something that is better than the luxuries of this life. We've given you the plan we've given you sort of unfair to how we've given you a slot. Stretch your eyes to the plan learned the poor and the more you learn the meanings of the hole and the more you'll find this kind of luxury in your life and happiness in your life.

01:52:10 --> 01:52:15

And there is some Allahu wa sallam he said in the dunya what would have

01:52:16 --> 01:52:21

what in Allah must come via film for rocky for that Maroon?

01:52:22 --> 01:52:39

Navy salam wa alayhi wa sallam he said this life is sweet and it's green. Sweet and it's green. It tastes beautiful things in this life taste beautiful. And there is beautiful scenery in this life, this beautiful landscape and mountains and rainfalls and greenery and so on.

01:52:40 --> 01:52:47

And you know if something is sweet, and beautiful and green, the eye seeks it and the heart seeks it.

01:52:49 --> 01:53:21

This is why I'm upholders. Don't stretch your eyes to the luxuries of this life. But when your heart when your eyes seek something that is luxury, and your heart seeks it. That's when the human being falls in a trap. So Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, that's how the world the life is full of luxuries, full of beauties, by Allah mostly for convenience and Allah sosial will make you inhabitants of this life so that he can see how you behave. Love is seen how we behave.

01:53:23 --> 01:53:49

For taco dunya taco Nyssa and the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam then said beware of this world and beware of woman. Verily, the first trial of the children of bunny Salaam he was in woman because of course, this is the greatest treatment. This is the greatest sweetener that Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, worried for his mama after his death, it not only sir, the fitna of women.

01:53:50 --> 01:54:16

So men are supposed to lower their gaze and woman at the same time are supposed to dress up appropriately, according to what Allah their master has commanded them to do. Now I'm so pauwela important. How do you finally my brothers and sisters in Islam, and I'm just sharing this conclusion with you so you can be in perspective what this what the life is really about. There is nothing to rush to

01:54:17 --> 01:54:58

concentrate in your prayer and take time in your solid one last Hadeeth and this is the habit of when was when a lot of your loved one who He says He did a whole but in front of his companions and I leave you with these words. He said to them a method for in the dunya Evan at the Solomon one let's have them.

He said, The world has given that has the world has been given the news

01:55:07 --> 01:55:52

of its end. And it's running to meet its ends with, meaning this world is it's coming to its end, almost finished. Nothing is left of this all the life, except the very little amount of water that remains in a cup. You know, a cup if you drink it, and then you put it down and there's a little bit of water left. That's how much that's left of this worldly life studies have automatically alone one. Then he said, and you are all going to move to an abode which knows no end, meaning we're all going to the Hereafter, and there is no end. So this world is about to end and the next life doesn't know any end, there is no ending

01:55:53 --> 01:55:54


01:55:55 --> 01:56:42

So he said, so everyone should proceed. There. Go there, go to the afterlife. With good deeds, pack up good deeds in your bag. Make sure your bag is well packed with good deeds, especially with your solid and go to the afterlife with that baggage. Linda, this world is about to end and we're about to start a new life in where it does not end. It's either Hellfire forever, or the paradise forever. You make the choice my brothers and sisters in Islam laws sosial has given us the intellect, the mind and the ability to worship him the way he deserves to be worship. And make the most of your time and ask Allah Subhana Allah Most importantly, that He gives you the aid and the ability and the
