Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah while leaving you on site the remaining 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 thought follows My dear respected Brothers and Sisters in Islam, a Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:28--> 00:01:25

Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran in surah to shout out without care lol Aziza Rahim. Olivia raka Hina the womb what Luba calf is Dean inna who who was Samir alim. These are powerful air from solo to shout out. Allah subhanahu wa Diala instructing the V sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in these eight he says the motto can Allen Aziza Brahim put your trust and reliance upon Allah allows ease or Rahim, the Almighty the Merciful. Then Allah azza wa jal says a levy Allah Kahina Poon. Allah is the One who continuously sees you. When you stand up for pray. Allah azza wa jal sees you when you stand appropriate, what Dr. Luba Caffee says he didn't and he sees your movements among those who

00:01:25--> 00:02:14

prostrate anyone you do prostration and you go from the prostration to standing and then from standing total core and then to suit these movements in a sala Allah azza wa jal is seeing that he sees you when you do them in the who who was Samir alim. Now the idea is this. Even though Allah subhanho wa Taala sees our movements all the time, every moment of the day and the night Allah azza wa jal sees our movements. However, in these eighth Allah azza wa jal specifically mentioned that he sees us when we stand for prayer, hanging at home when you stand up for the prayer. And he specifically mentioned that he sees us when we move throughout our solid from standing to require to

00:02:14--> 00:03:05

suit in these positions. Why did Allah azza wa jal mentioned specifically that he sees us as we are praying? This, my brothers and sisters in Islam is an indication to the fact that the most beloved site to Allah subhanho wa Taala for him to see his servants in is when we are standing in Isola, but otherwise, Allah azza wa jal sees us all the time. But in these ayat he specifically mentioned that he sees us when we pray, and this is an indication to the fact that this position when we are standing in solid is the most beloved position to Allah Azorean to see the servant in gauging in Yanni the most of his time during the day and the night.

00:03:06--> 00:03:59

What have been most of all the Allahu Anhu he said, he asked the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a you are merely a Hubble Illa Allah, what is the deed that is most beloved to Allah? This is a direct question. When Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam answered Eben Miss route and he said the US solid to free walk the hair that you pray are solid during its fixed prescribed time. This is the most beloved do to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allahu Akbar. And so that means we must focus on this meaning every single time we stand for a solid, that Allah azza wa jal loves to see me stand in prayer, you must focus on this meaning that Allah azza wa jal loves to see the servant in a solid, so that every

00:03:59--> 00:04:48

time you get up to pray, pray with this kind of feeling that has enveloped your heart and your soul, that Allah loves to see me standing in a sonnet as opposed to praying with the mindset and the mentality that I have a responsibility. I have an obligation, I have a task I have a duty to do. Let's get up and pray. Yes, we all have this duty to get up and pray. But when you pray, with a mindset of I'd love to be in a position that Allah loves. It changes your perspective about a solid. So keep this meaning in your mind every time you get up to pray. This is something that is supposed to motivate you and continuously motivate you and encourage you to pray. Whether we're praying

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

voluntary prayers or obligatory prayers, the thing that motivates you keep in your mind and in your heart, that Allah azza wa jal loves to see me in this position. When I get up

00:05:00--> 00:05:54

I prefer his Sikh subhanho wa taala. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, why was a solid, the most beloved deep to Allah subhanho wa Taala simply because from the very beginning of the prayer to the end of the prayer, all your limbs, your tongue, and your heart, and your feet, and your bones, and your nerves and your hands, your fingers, your eyes, every single limb of yours is engaged in the worship of Allah subhanahu wata, Allah Allahu Akbar. Every single limb of your body is moving in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala the tongue and it's remembrance of Allah azza wa jal throughout the entire pray your eyes as it looks to the area of pursuit. It's moving in the worship of Allah,

00:05:55--> 00:06:01

your ears when you're praying behind the Imam and you're listening to a solid, it's engaging in Victrola

00:06:02--> 00:06:26

every single limb your hands as you move them up and down when you go your entire body and your bone joints when they move, and your feet as they move throughout a solid all of your body moves. Therefore a solid is the most beloved detail Allah subhanho wa Taala because it involves your entire body parts moving for the sake of Allah absorption.

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

Also, why is the prayer the most beloved de to Allah subhanho wa Taala because of Salette combines all the pillars of Islam. Did you ever think of this? What are the pillars of Islam? There are five a showerhead attain to declare that Allah azza wa jal is one Lord worthy of worship and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the Messenger of Allah, the second pillar of Islam or solid zakat, or Mabon, one has five pillars. You know the prayer, it combines all these five pillars, listen to how, first and foremost a showerhead attain.

00:07:08--> 00:07:55

When we say a shadow, Illa Illa illa Allah? Well, when you pray, that is a declaration, to the Oneness of Allah has origin, because it's only the one who believes in Allah, that prays for Allah has origin. Therefore, as you pray, there is an element of Shahada. There is a shadow La Ilaha illa Allah in your solid. Otherwise, if you did not bear witness that Allah is one worthy of worship, you wouldn't have prayed. So there we go. A solid has the element of shahada, the second part of a share that is a shadow under Muhammad Rasool Allah, you bear witness to the fact that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the messenger of Allah. Where is that in a solid? Because when you pray, how do

00:07:55--> 00:08:43

you pray? Who taught you how to pray? And Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself said, solo Kamara a to Mooney was only pray in the same manner you see me pray. So when we pray, we are praying exactly how in the beast Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam prayed nothing more, nothing less. So there is a shadow under Muhammad Rasool Allah in your solid. So every time you pray, there is a shadow La ilaha illa. Allah in your salat because you are praying and your Salat is a manifestation. It's a display that you have accepted that Allah is One Lord worthy of being worshipped. And in your solid, very the there is a display that Mohamed also

00:08:43--> 00:09:01

Allah because you are only praying according to how he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught you how to pray. The second pillar of Islam is a solid or solid is a solid. The third pillar of Islam is zakat. How is the prayer? How does the prayer have an element of zakat? Listen.

00:09:02--> 00:09:05

What is a second Zakat is when we give

00:09:07--> 00:09:55

when we give money, when we give 2.5% of our wealth, to purify the rest of our money and our soul. This is what Zakat is. The prayer is time we take out during the day and night. A solid is this one hour. We take away from the day and the night and we fulfill our obligation we pray for Allah and that pray. It purifies the rest of our day and night. It purifies it and he purifies our soul Allahu Akbar, when nobody sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said or Sala to La Salette mocha Fila to Lima you know, Homer, mage to the metal cada that one prayer to another. It wipes away all the minor sins in between

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

if the major sins were to be avoided, so look

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

Looking at the opposite. For example, looking at the opposite sex with a lustful look, this is how it's a minor sin. So that is wiped away with your solid from one solid to another solid, another solid it wipes away those minor sins. So just as zakat, you take out 2.5% of your wealth, it purifies all your wealth and all the dirtiness of the soul, then a solid is that one hour of the day in the night you take out and then he purifies the rest of the day in the night for you. And it purifies your soul Allahu Akbar. This is how solid has an element of zakat in it by and the fourth pillar of Islam is Ramadan to fast Ramadan, how does a solid have an element of Ramadan in it,

00:10:55--> 00:11:49

because in Ramadan, we do not eat and we do not drink and we do not engage in sexual relations during the day and are solid as well. We do not eat and we do not drink and we are focused in our salad to Allah subhanho wa taala. So Salette has an element of Ramadan within it. And finally, the last pillar of Islam is a hash and how is a solid? How does it have an element of house How is a solid related to a house because when we want to perform how we go to Mecca, and we do pull off around the cover, and in our solid, we are facing the cover, we are facing the cover. Therefore, the prayer combines all the five pillars of Islam within them Allah Akbar. This is why a salad is the

00:11:49--> 00:12:42

most beloved deed to Allah subhanho wa Taala and my brothers and sisters in Islam, a third reason why the prayer is the most beloved deed to Allah has origin is because from the very beginning of the prayer to the end of the prayer, we are remembering Allah Azzawajal non stop without any distraction. You're not allowed to answer your phone during a solid. You don't read messages during a solid. You don't open up Whatsapp and Facebook and social media. None of that is allowed. You are purely focused in your salad from the very beginning to the very end. It is all the karula none stop from when you say Allahu Akbar. And then you praise Allah Subhana Allah Morbihan, the quarter

00:12:42--> 00:13:26

Baracus moocow dialogic bucola Illa how are you? And then you read Quran the most beloved word to Allah azza wa jal, and you begin to ponder over what you read. This is the greatest vicar that Allah azza wa jal ever gave mankind which is a Quran. And so you're reading this you're remembering Allah in your Salah, and then you move from that to our record. In our record, you're saying, Allah Allahu Akbar, and you go down non stop. I'm telling you from the beginning to the end of a solid nonstop vicar for Allah azza wa jal, and you know, when you're moving from one position to another position in a solid, when are you supposed to see Allahu Akbar, you're supposed to say it. Throughout the

00:13:26--> 00:14:15

movement, you're not supposed to say it from when you move, Yanni. Let's say you're standing and you want to go to a record, you don't say, Allahu Akbar. And then you move into core, let the trunk and you don't move into record. And when you're finally in record, you say, Allahu Akbar, that's wrong. The correct is to say, Allahu Akbar, as you're moving from one position to another. So when you want to go into record, you will say, Allah Allahu Akbar, and you stretch it out until you reach the next position. This is how you see it. Why? So that the prayer, not a single moment, is that you remain silent from the Crow law. The prayer is supposed to be continuous LiveChat you're not supposed to

00:14:15--> 00:14:59

stop even a microsecond from the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala Yep, so you go into the core, when the be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Well, I'm gonna record for Avi movie here, Rob, on a lot of stores, you're letting glorifying Him in your court. System. Subhan Allah, that's what masuleh said. So that means seaspan or B. Alavi Sapan or B and Avi Sapan or Belavia him he say at minimum 10 times Yonny there is some opinions three, but the minimum is 10 times you're supposed to say a 10 times this is where Asuna is more correctly to 10 times. We even in a suit Subhan Allah Bella Anna more correctly is that it said 10 times. So

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

You make your honor Allah azza wa jal in your Neurocore.

00:15:04--> 00:15:47

And on Allah, you know, some people say, what's a good number of times that I'm supposed to say Subhan? Allah BL Allah or Subhanallah Belov him. When I'm in Rocco Institute. How many times should I say what's a good number of times? My Brothers and Sisters in Islam and maybe some Allahu Allah said I'll Lemo he said I'll remove feel up honor Allah glorifying him in a record. So I tell you something, and answer to that question. Stay in your record until you feel that you have glorified Allah. Stay in your suit until you feel that you have really honored and glorified Allah Azza vision, because this is what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, glorify Allah in your suit

00:15:47--> 00:16:28

and in your record now. So look at this from the very beginning of a solitary and non stop he could Allah has sergeant and then you get up from a Roku or you praise Allah or banner Allah Cal Hum hum then caffeine on EVA Mobarak and fee you go into Su and that's the closest position you are to Allah azza wa jal and you continuously making the good of Allah and then you're sitting on your knees after you get up from a su and this kind of ceiling is the ceiling of a bigger it's the ceiling of someone who is in need. You're in need of Allah azza wa jal so this is the time in where you say your bill fiddly or Bill fairly, or Bill fairly or Romney was Bernie Dini, why Finney. These occur

00:16:28--> 00:17:21

and why you say as your as you as you're sitting on your knees while having gotten up from a suit now until until you're making it the Hyatt until you say Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah the entire Salette vicar to Allah nama stop. This is why was the most beloved deed to Allah azza wa jal and there are absolutely no distractions in a solid you're supposed to be focused. You're supposed to be focused to Allah subhanho wa taala. Now, so my brothers and sisters in Islam is a prayer is the most beloved deed to Allah has origin. So if a person claims to love Allah, then he must do that which Allah loves is very simple the equation. If you claim to love Allah as origin, then do that which

00:17:21--> 00:17:30

Allah loves. So engage in plenteous when it comes to a solid, I'm not just speaking about unformed voluntary prayers, who soon and pray.

00:17:31--> 00:17:48

And if the prayer is the most beloved deed to Allah, that means the quickest way to earn Allah's love and pleasure is by praying and praying a lot. So my brothers and sisters in Islam pray, pray before sunrise.

00:17:49--> 00:18:16

Pray after sunrise. Pray before midday, pre me afternoon. Pray after sunset, pray at night. Pray in the last third of the night. Pre whenever you need Allah azza wa jal is guidance on a specific matter. Pray every time you enter a masjid. So Lu, pray, pray a lot. Pray as much as you can. We are only

00:18:17--> 00:18:25

or we only have one chance on this earth. After we die, that's it. No more solid is required from you.

00:18:26--> 00:18:45

The obligation has been lifted, responsibility has been lifted. That's it. You are now awaiting the results for the Day of Judgment. Now you're waiting the day of judgment to see the results of your Salat. Now now we are in the exam now. Now is the time. Pray as much as you can. Don't be lazy.

00:18:47--> 00:18:53

There is a Sahabi His name is Allah biotic niqab and Eslami OB Allahu Anhu.

00:18:54--> 00:19:35

He said that one time he went through school allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he asked him a question. He said to him, no, actually the Sahaba or Obeah or the Allah one we said, come to earth he rasool Allah boo boo, he will be Hagerty. He used to bring the bowl of water for us all allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in order for the release of Allahu alayhi wa sallam to make although so Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he asked to be on time, and he said to him, sell me. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Turabian asked me, asked me something, asked me whatever you want. Tell me what do you want? Like what what do you think it'll be? I'll ask. So we'll be out of the

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

Allahu Anhu he said, the rasool Allah, Maura, careful Jenna, I ask that I be your companion in the Paradise Gladue. And this RBR was a young boy. Look what his aspiration was, look what is bothering him and what he wants and what is on his mind. He wants to be a company of Rasul Allah, a friend of rasool Allah in the Paradise

00:20:01--> 00:20:46

He did not ask for anything worldly. So then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said team, our hyena VALIC Do you want anything else? Allah Yanni he's asking him, Do you want anything else? Okay, fine. You want to be my companion in the Paradise? Is there anything else you want in this dunya anything you want? For a BRB Allah one who said, who were there? That's the only thing I want. I want to be your companion in the Paradise Allah What about the high aspiration that are Sahaba Obioma Han whom had so then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said theme for our in Niala and a seeker because I thought his suit, he said to him helped me out by making a lot of suit, which

00:20:46--> 00:21:28

means by praying a lot, it doesn't just mean go drop into suit every time not it means to pray because a suit comes only in a solid, except if a person was doing such that to sugar or such data to our when you recite the Quran and there is an AI of sujood then you go straight down into suit. Or if there is an excitement moment in your life and you want to thank Allah azza wa jal for it which is recommended. You go into sujood straightaway. Otherwise, a suit is supposed to be in solid. So the Hadith means and the reason Allahu alayhi wa sallam said team helped me out, you will be my companion in the Paradise. But there's something you need to do pray a lot, pre a lot, pre in

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

plentiful supply and a lot.

00:21:30--> 00:22:08

And so again, if the prey leads to the Paradise, not only that, but a lot of prey, makes a person close and companions and neighbors with Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Paradise. If that's the effect of a solid, then surely it must be the most well loved the to Allah subhanahu wata Island. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, I want to warn you of something. And this is something severe, dangerous and serious. And it is answering the question of why most of us are lazy when it comes to the print.

00:22:09--> 00:22:48

Why is it that look, there is a lot of people that are extremely lazy when it comes to the form of photo press. There are some people that prove the photo he and he pushes himself and he proves that there are others that find praying anything more than default is very, very difficult upon them. And they are lazy concerning that when it comes to Sunon or robotic, you know, the Sulan that are attached to the prayers, the ones before and after the prayers. Some people don't pray that at all, Allahu Akbar, Muslims don't prevent at all they only stick to the fall will happily lead. But we need to lift the standard and the bar up for us you need to climb and ascend in your relationship

00:22:48--> 00:23:25

with Allah massage. And so I want to answer this question. Why is it that we are lazy when it comes to the prayer? Some people have never ever experienced the night prayer in their life, except in Ramadan. insalata tarawih some people they don't know what winter is, and they have never prayed with it. Some people select the boy, good boy, he doesn't even pray select the boy and doesn't even know what it is. So why, why is it the case that we are lazy when it comes to the prayer? And don't have that have a great concern towards the prayer? Listen, I will tell you why listen carefully.

00:23:29--> 00:24:02

Since we have just established now in our lesson, that the most beloved deed to Allah is the prayer. Therefore you should know that the shine upon the shade bonds evil whispering is going to be the strongest to the servants. Whenever the time for prayer comes. Yeah, and look, there's a principle here. The deeds that are most beloved to Allah are the deeds in which Ashiya ponds evil whispering upon us would be the strongest.

00:24:03--> 00:24:57

Learn this, the deed or solid is the most beloved deed to Allah. So Shavon is going to work extra extra hard to keep your away from a solid and similar to this principle is that the deeds that are most hated to Allah, the sheer bombs evil whispering for you towards them would be the most strongest. Understand this. And so when you realize and recognize this, you need to know that the laziness is coming from a ship on. It's coming from a ship on. He wants to keep everyone away from a solid, so you need to fight him. Fight him with Alistair either. Our will be hearing a shake upon your regime. The strongest word ever said that would crush and destroy a ship on it's the either.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

That is the sharpest knife.

00:25:00--> 00:25:27

against a shape one and is the other our own will be lay him in a shade of powder, Brahim. You're seeking the protection of Allah from this accursed shape born and so continuously repeated said as many times as you need until you feel the strength and power to get up by Allah's permission and to prove that this is something we need to recognize and realize in our life, my brothers and sisters in Islam

00:25:28--> 00:25:34

and Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam during his day and during his night used to engage in a lot of Salat

00:25:36--> 00:25:39

in a lot of solidity, because no one no one

00:25:40--> 00:25:48

yet and he knew that the most beloved deep to Allah has version is the pray more than rasool Allah. And so

00:25:49--> 00:26:04

since he knew that a solid is the most beloved detail Allah, this was the moose deed he would engage in every single day and night. So when the beast Allah Allah wa salam, if you were to observe and ponder over the seal of Rasul Allah,

00:26:05--> 00:26:44

especially the prayer of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you'd realize that he would pray at least 40 light guide a day, a day or night 1414 guide 17 blackout for the obligatory prayers tovala Guyatt for the robotic the sooner and before and after 11 rocket which was his wizard, the clear will lay the night Pro. So that's 17 plus 12 plus 11 That's 40 aka hat, he would pray Allah c'mon 40 rocket

00:26:46--> 00:27:20

Yanni we should be trying to achieve this and it's not it's not difficult Allah He loved him it is not difficult 17 block out for the obligatory prayers we're praying we're praying add to them are related to like add before version for God before bow to like after World War Two after modeling my brothers and sisters to like only after Madrid and two after Asia and then go for asleep and wake up. I am not saying to get up two hours before vision.

00:27:21--> 00:27:59

Not even one hour. Get up half an hour before freshers Get up 20 minutes before freshers and pre 11 rocket Wallah, he will Allah he will change your life completely. 11 rockhead the one who prays a lot is someone that is reading Quran a lot. These two go hand in hand solid and quiet go hand in hand, the one who's praying a lot. He's reading a lot of Quran. He's engaging in the word of Allah azza wa jal and in order to see success in your life, you need to have an affiliation and a relationship with these two things Salat and Quran.

00:28:01--> 00:28:50

And then why do we see that there is a lot of unsuccess in our life. Because Quran Salah is missing, the one who wants to see success in his life, goodness in his life, Baraka in his life, the ones the one who wants to see Baraka in his power to others Baraka in his advice Baraka in his words to others, the one who's want to see wants to see productivity in his work in his day in his night, in his meetings with others, in his conversations with others. If you want to see baraka and success in your DNA and unite and in your actions and jobs, then there are two things you must have all the time and that is solid and Quran, solid and Quran.

00:28:51--> 00:29:35

For solid, it is Quran because the majority part of the site is spent reading Quran when you're standing, especially the night prayer, it focuses that meaning for you. And it keeps you focused in your relationship with Allah and in the Quran. Because of course it's a quiet time. It's a time in where Allah azza wa jal descends, and he's looking at the servants and he always sees a subhanaw taala but this is a special time where Allah azza wa jal is observing the servants and He's forgiving their sins and answering their desire and giving them what they want. So pray my brothers and sisters in Islam increase your solo Earth, a solid is going to keep you on the straight path.

00:29:35--> 00:29:40

It's going to be keep you committed and steadfast until the day you die.

00:29:41--> 00:29:50

And so if that's Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praying for to God during the day in the night. That means there are at SU

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

theories at SU short in folio, aka What do you think? The one who knocks the door of Allah a

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

tee times a day

00:30:02--> 00:30:04

that Allah would reject such a person

00:30:05--> 00:30:55

can enter what's bothering you? Is there a matter that's bothering you? Take it, reserve it for a solid. What is it? You want success in life by automorphic money or like give me success. Ask Allah at times in every single suit, that if you're praying 17 Look at the fob and Tov the Sunon robotic 11 Select the late 11 o'clock at night. That's for your guide at suit. The one who is asking Allah at times, never Allah sosial would reject Him. Because you are asking Allah ensuite, which is the closest you can be to Allah assertion. Allah Kabbalah, my brothers and sisters in Islam, I finally want to conclude with one thing, and that is,

00:30:57--> 00:31:01

you know, in the books of footer, there is a chapter

00:31:02--> 00:31:04

that is titled Babel, oh god the Navy.

00:31:05--> 00:31:16

So when you open the books of FERPA, there is a chapter there cable Salette, the chapter of prayer, and it's got all the rulings of the one of the chapters within the chapter of solid.

00:31:17--> 00:31:35

It is our call tonight it discusses. It discusses the times in which the prayer is forbidden. There are times in which the prayer is forbidden. And so all the ahaadeeth related to the pray, or the times in which the prayers forbidden are in that chapter.

00:31:37--> 00:32:08

And of course, what is meant? What does it mean that the prayer is forbidden during this time, of course, it's referring to the voluntary prayers. So I'm referring to the obligatory prayers because the obligatory prayer whenever you remember it, it see you forgot to pray, and obligatory pray and then you remember in a time of way, it's forbidden to pray, you must pray it. So the chapter of when, when the prayer is forbidden, the times in which the prayer is forbidden is for the voluntary praise. Now look at this, let me tell you something.

00:32:09--> 00:32:51

You see, the reality is that the majority of us don't pray any voluntary praise, because we only play pray the obligatory prayers, Sonata Rottie.

The first place he would go to after a long travel was a masjid and he would pray to like this is why it is a sunnah, that whoever comes back to his country after a travel, that he go to the masjid and pray to like it. This is highlighting the importance of the masjid and the prayer in the life of a Muslim.

When the be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam care and if there hasn't been a maroon fuzzy ie la sala at any time he was affected by a matter he would rush to the prayer. This is how the Companions described him. And this wasn't a hadith he said, This is how the Companions describe the meaning. How many times did they see him rushed to the prayer. Every time he was faced by a calamity or there was a distressing matter.

00:39:06--> 00:39:41

They had seen so much that they related it to us as a news as a hub as an alpha as a hadith that any time he was distressed He was rushed to the prey. When the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam can either sell Ramadan, Hopper says you that if he was excited and happy with a blessing of Allah azza wa jal, he would make suit. He would make suit and thank Allah azza wa jal. You know, most of us today, when you get good news, right? Let's say you receive good news, you pass the exam. You're promoted in your work.

So you get your phone, you call them Alhamdulillah we got what we want. We achieved that. Or let's say you know, there was a

00:40:00--> 00:40:24

A terrible sickness in your body will ask Allah azza wa jal to give us protection and she felt for over sick. But let's say you had some sickness, and then you did a scan, you did a scan, and all of a sudden your cancer was gone. It is no longer there. It's disappeared. It's not growing anymore. You're so excited you call your family first and you share the news and humbly layer Hello us, my pain is gone and my cancer is gone.

In a case like this, the first thing you should do before you call your family is such that to sugar, you make suit. And what's that? What is that all about? That is you thanking Allah first and discussing the matter with Allah first, before you share it with others. And only someone that is close to Allah has social or understand this meaning and not only that will implement this sister to sugar for that was also awesome Allah Allah He was alone.

00:40:55--> 00:41:25

He wants to he wants to express his happiness to Allah first before he would give it to his family of those around him. That is the idea of such as to sugar. That's how connected and the reason Allah Allah He was in them was with the prayer. Always connected with Ocelot. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, we're studying the Sabri or solid, Allah azza wa jal, he says, seek Allah's help. Through the prayer, seek Allah's help any whenever you need help.

00:41:26--> 00:42:02

And if you're if you're in a state where you need help, that means you're in trouble. That means there's a difficulty. So Allah azza wa jal is seeing seek Allah's help, through patience and the prayer through a solid, you know, most of us during a calamity and a difficulty we know that you see in that Ilahi we're in a in a hero's journey, we all know this, but who from among us, when there is a calamity, he gets up, he makes wobble. And he prays knowing that the prayer aids a person and strengthens him concerning his difficulty and calamity.

00:42:03--> 00:42:30

So we must all ask ourselves, what is our relationship with the voluntary prayers other than the the end of the fog, we're not speaking about the follow up. And our Atiba will later this a believer should already be doing now, when was the last time you prayed to a cat? Because you love a Salette and you are longing for the meeting with Allah azza wa jal in this prayer.

00:42:33--> 00:43:22

Now Subhan Allah, this is what I wanted to share with you, my brothers and sisters in Islam. And don't forget that the first matter that is judged on the Day of Judgment is a solid itself. If your prayer was correct on the day of judgment, and it's all ticked, and it was perfect and complete, everything else you did, everything else you did zakat, reading, Quran, fasting, hush, almost Ombra, being good to your parents charities, looking for after people looking in the affairs of the poor, and the needy, all of the good deeds you do are all a pass, all of them are a pass. And if you've if your prayer was incomplete on the day of judgment, and if it comes ruined on the Day of Judgment,

00:43:22--> 00:43:31

everything else you did of the good deeds, habit, all of it facet, all of it would be ruined. Allahu Akbar,

00:43:33--> 00:44:21

is in that already enough for you and I to understand that we should prioritize a solid before anything else in our life. Prioritize a solid before anything else. If you're solid, solid had if it was good, and healthy, and you have maintained the prayer, then all your deeds are good. And if it was ruined, all of your deeds are ruined. And that's the first question on the Day of Judgment. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, this is one opportunity we have on Earth, we will never ever come back here ever again. This one second that just went by will never ever, ever return. It's either that one second that just went now. It's either a witness for you. It either helps you on the Day of

00:44:21--> 00:45:00

Judgment, or it's either against you, it witnesses against you on the Day of Judgment. So let the time that you live on earth be a witness for you. And fill up your time with the most beloved de Tala, which is the prayer of Salah. And you will not only see its benefits on the day of judgment on Llahi you are going to see its benefits in this life. In every moment in your life. You're going to see the benefits of the prayer in your relationship with your spouse, you're going to see the benefit of a solid in your relationship with your children. You're going to see it in your work. You're going to see

00:45:00--> 00:45:19

In your manners, oxy mobiler you're you're praying, you're going to see its effect. If it's maintained well, you're going to see its effect in your manners in your character. You're going to see it in your organization, you'll be organized, you'll be a person on time you'll be a person that's productive. You'll be a person that people love.

00:45:20--> 00:45:37

And you're going to see its effect in the grave as well as so that comes in to protect human available cover. That's its effect a solid to know as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a solid is light, it will illuminate your grief.

00:45:38--> 00:46:28

Now, don't forget these meanings my brothers and sisters in Islam, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep us firm and steadfast upon our prayers, Allah mashallah Mimaki ME A SOLID Allahu mashallah Allah min Mookie me are solid or been allowed to ZIL Kuru bonobo it had a tener hablan emila dhankar Ramadan in canto Lahab We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep a steadfast upon the prayers we ask Allah azza wa jal to keep a steadfast upon Amen.
