00:00:18--> 00:00:21

as follows my dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam,

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

and even Muslim or Hama, Hama, he mentioned this following Hadith in his story, and this is the hadith of, of men of an urban house sohrabi Allahu anhu. This is a companion that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam appointed as a leader, but boy, if so there is a area called a bar if it's close to Mecca about 60 kilometers away from Mecca. When NaVi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam obviously at the time was living in El Medina. So he appointed of men have been up in sort of the Allahu anhu as an Imam for the people in Nepal. If so, of Mandarin Avila house he narrates, he says,

00:01:03--> 00:01:06

I became confused in my soul that he is praying.

00:01:08--> 00:01:53

And he's forgetting what he's reading is forgetting how many of our God is praying. He's been distracted and disturbed in your solid. So he went to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in El Medina, and he approached the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whenever he saw cinemas and he surprised what are you doing here? We've appointed the robot if ye coming towards Medina, so he said to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yellow Salalah in nutshell Tanaka had a baby obey no celebrity or karate you will be swallowing that a shavon has become a barrier between me and my sled. He's distracting me and my solid and he is confusing me in that which I read of the Quran. Any

00:01:53--> 00:02:03

advice? for newbies Allahu Allahu wa sallam he says to him that cache apolonio con una hinda. This is a shavon Caulkins up

00:02:04--> 00:02:20

for East Asia. If he comes again in the sonnet, Fatah was Billahi min se alveolar him in a shavon it was him and spill to your left what Fulani acetic acid earthen and spittle to your left and he turned to your left and go

00:02:21--> 00:03:06

three times and allow soil will remove him away from you. Fast men have an open house for the alojado obviously he returns back to our boys and he says I did that for us haha hola Juan de la social got him away from me. And his focus and concentration came back to him once again in a solid, my brothers and sisters in Islam in brief. If we look at this hadith closely, we find something incredible about the Sahaba. And their concern with this on earth of men have been up in our sort of the Allahu anhu had a problem in where he cannot concentrate and focus in a solid. So what did he do? Most of us today complain from the same issue. But what do we do? Nothing. Nothing. Yama, Let's

00:03:06--> 00:03:40

pray. And it's all good. Shama Juan de Lucia will come by itself from a server it'll come down and one day inshallah we can find this focus in a solid of men urban urban, probably Allahu anhu didn't settle with this. He didn't ignore it. He got on to use camel. And he took a journey of six seven days until he reached out Medina to ask Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about this issue. Six days of travel on a camel day or night, almost 600 kilometres? For what? Because he cannot concentrate in his sonet

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

Don't we all have this issue? What have you done about it?

00:03:46--> 00:03:53

He took a journey until he reached el Medina. And who better than your son in law some Allahu alayhi wa sallam to ask?

00:03:54--> 00:04:17

You and I my brothers and sisters in Islam. What's your relationship with a solid? What concern Do we have with our solid Yani upon hours of man hours is concerned with us for sure. today and I receive messages on my phone, I lost motivation to pray. Heather is not asking about for sure. He lost motivation to pray all together.

00:04:18--> 00:04:45

What kind of advice do we give him and align their books or they used to discuss what is the ruling on a person that leaves a solid, but they didn't go into detail? Because they said that this is a assumed Nara who's gonna leave solid. Why are we supposed to talk about it anyway? So yeah, the quick work, they didn't spend a lot of time in it. Because it wasn't imaginable that someone in their time was going to leave us on earth

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

should have never been up in the Allahu anhu we're learning a lot from him. He took this journey because he's concerned in useful that he understands that that is your link to Allah subhanho wa Taala without us

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

If you have no direct connection with Allah azzawajal that's why it was called for that. It is solid comes from the word Scylla. Or Silla means a connection, that which links you and your master.

00:05:13--> 00:05:44

This is why it was called a solid journey without solid there is no connection he understood that he's missing something vital in a footnote, which is Alicia. Let's now look into and analyze the response of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this definitely is the cure for each and every single one of us. Everyone that complains of a lack of horseshoe in solid and focus in solid, listen, because this is the advice that is Yani basically required for everyone.

00:05:45--> 00:05:50

And let me sell Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said to him, their cache upon

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

that destruction that you find in a solid is because of a shame upon you call.

00:05:59--> 00:06:18

The firm's name is called Hinson. Jani. What does this mean? It means that there is a special shavon designed only to come and distract the insula. Nothing else during your day and during and it doesn't come. But as soon as you say Allahu Akbar, he's there.

00:06:19--> 00:06:49

He's there right there. reminding you something in the car, reminding you something at home, reminding you something that you had to do a minute ago now all of a sudden, you know seletti remember the way did all this come from? From shale Ponyo? Paula Hawkins up and he is staying with you. He will remain until you finish a salad for dinner. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying to have men have an open house. This is a shavon COVID Ginza. Now what's the what's the honey? Why do we have to know there's a shavon Caulkins applying

00:06:51--> 00:07:03

Allahu alayhi wa sallam wants us to know. Be aware and stay focused and stay alert that as soon as you begin the solid, there is an enemy trying to steal from your solid.

00:07:04--> 00:07:45

So stay alert. Jani imagine now I said to you. I said to you, brother, can you go down the street and buy me a bottle of milk and come back. Go to a store and buy me a bottle of milk. Normal, you'll take the journey easy. We'll go you'll get the bottle of milk and you come. But if I was to say to your brother, beware. There are thieves on the road. There are rubbers on the road. I don't know that the road is not safe, beware. Now your attitude when going to the store to buy the bottle of milk is not going to be as the journey you will take to the store if I wasn't to tell you of these threats that are around you. It wouldn't it be a lot. You'd carry a stick, you'd look left and

00:07:45--> 00:07:45

right.

00:07:47--> 00:08:25

So that you make sure you're not attacked. That you've been nerissa mamajuana your Salah when he's telling us that there is a special shavon that comes upon us when we are praying you follow the hymns up. In other words of a solar masala Allahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us that the biggest and the greatest reason of attaining who you are in solid is to know that there is an enemy waiting for you as soon as you begin your solid. Now when you know this, your attitude changes when you begin solid. You don't begin Allahu Akbar, as though there is nothing a no worry. You begin and you know that you're going to enter a fight against the shaper

00:08:27--> 00:08:36

whose only role is to distract you in a solid. For now you're more alert, and you're focused and you're concentrating and you begin Allahu Akbar.

00:08:37--> 00:08:53

When he comes up, you're focused. If he comes and tries to distract it, what do you do? You say out we'll be laying him in a chiffonier regime. This phrase which is a it is the greatest weapon against the shape on

00:08:54--> 00:09:24

it is better than cursing the show barn. It is better than doing anything else you feel and think you might hurt the shape on with the greatest weapon that will seriously damage and hurt the shape on is this hour we'll be laying him in a shape on your machine. Why? Because you're seeking a loss protection from him. Well, Lars Zoysia is the one who created a shavonne for if you seek a loss protection from him a lot. He's the only one to protect you from him.

00:09:26--> 00:09:36

And then, if this was wise, is growing and growing in a solid and the destruction is growing and growing in a solid, turn to your left and spilled

00:09:37--> 00:10:00

three times. This is on the show barn and his destruction and it was worse of men of an albatross did that. And he told us for sort of a verbal lohani and eventually, after a while a shavonne was removed por la Zoysia took the SharePoint away from him and he regained once again, consciousness, focus and

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

Concentration, and horseshoe are in his solid. For in brief my brothers in Islam. What we're learning from this hadith is that we're supposed to have a serious relationship with our solid. We're supposed to be concerned for every pillar in this solid, every single pillar and the greatest of them is Alicia. be focused and be aware to be alert. And understand as soon as you enter a solid, you're in a fight with the shape arm. This is why you see this, what's it called in Islam?

00:10:29--> 00:10:51

Whether it's called al Maha, it comes from the word help. How means a battle, because once you enter the hub, you're entering a battle with the shavonne. And sooner or later these nilla you overcome the show barn. And we read in the last ad that we read in now selected in shavon, likoma do

00:10:52--> 00:11:30

guadua Allah azza wa jal is teaching us how to deal with him. He said that the Chopin is an enemy of yours, therefore, take him as an enemy. You see, most of us know the first part of the air, that the Shabbat is an enemy. But the next part of the ayah says, then treat him as an enemy. And so you know, when you have an enemy, how do you treat him? we really know how to treat enemies. If someone hurt you or harm you or did something to you, how do you block him? You don't respond to him. You don't answer him. You'll never invite him. You will live on to see you know how to you know really well how to treat your enemy. The greatest enemy on top of the list was a Shabbat. Why didn't you do

00:11:30--> 00:12:16

that with the Showboat? And this is the solution that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches of men of an urban household we allow one We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us and Lucia in our solid focus and concentration in our solid because without this concentration without this for sure, our solid is always an always an always going to be heavy upon us. Allah azza wa jal he says, He says subhanho wa Taala in Allah Kabir Ratan Illa. Allah hace to salette is heavy. It's huge, except upon those who have who are. For those who have been given assure, they will find a solid, really they will see it as a gift from Allah to them. They will find it as a blessing from Allah to

00:12:16--> 00:13:07

them. They cannot wait to pray. They cannot wait to get up to the solid. This is why you know Allah then is supposed to be recited slowly. But if karma isn't recited slowly or Quickly, quickly, why or whatever. They said, By now we're standing we cannot wait to start, hurry up and finish the comma so we can say Allahu Akbar, and begin our solid. So the comment was rushed because of that case. Musa alayhis salam, and NaVi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed by his grave for a moussaka even you suddenly feel that Musa alayhis salam was standing and praying in his grave. Kenny, how much did Musa alayhis salam love the salette that Allah did not deprive him from solid even in his grave. We

00:13:07--> 00:13:47

shall Islam Ibn taymiyyah Rahim Allah, He speaks about this. He says that there are servants that fall in love so much with a worship that Allah will not deprive them from that worship in the grave. What kind of level is this? This is huge. This is a huge level. And it can only be attained with cashew and deep focus with allows for my brothers and sisters in Islam. Use the remaining days of Ramadan, to ask Allah azza wa jal to grant you this kind of kashua and to grant you the ability to have assure in your solid and in your worship swells colossal pantalla to accept from a soul. Well sallallahu wasallam avacado Nabina Muhammad Allah Allah He also big marine
