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

It will perform properly and trying to put on the show the way that needs to be put on which is fine, but you'll lose it. So you need to take some time and reflect upon your intention before you pray, it's very, very important that you lose yourself, especially you guys attend the Teskey. So you can easily understand that this is you're here for the job. And part of your job is the service you're offering the people behind you when as you lead, making sure that they're benefiting from the citation and benefiting from the actual job that you're doing. But that won't happen if you don't have the proper intention to begin with. So make sure that that's a piece of your preparation like

00:00:33--> 00:01:05

when you come in for for Salah you know that you're praying today you're gonna be leading today, make sure you take a moment to think about these things, it gets processed, the whole concept that I'd be standing up in front of people, I have to I have to ground my intention and make it sincere It's for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala hoping obviously to benefit people as you go through it like the reason that we're training you a little bit is so that you can do it properly. So that you don't stand there and just completely make make a mess out of it. So I'm not saying that you shouldn't care of how you're performing and how people are benefiting from what you're doing. But if

00:01:05--> 00:01:35

you don't if you're not careful, you can get lost you can become all about the performance and all about how people are proceeding with it they're liking it or not whether your voice was nice not needed. I don't think that's the right way to pray. Right because you're losing the idea of Salah and then you're ruining a Ramadan you're better off just praying at home alone or just praying him at home quietly and focusing and learning so that doesn't mean you're young. This is more difficult as you grow as you get older as you do this more it'll become easier for you like a little bit you'll get more skilled and kind of focusing your intention but you do need to work on your

00:01:35--> 00:01:56

intention to perfect it for for several weeks and I and if you feel like you cannot and you're not doing that then you need to talk to me because maybe you need some time off or maybe you need to kind of work a little bit stay in the in the the the behind the lines for a while before you are you kind of st sign up front where else you're gonna you're gonna end up harming yourself in the long run are we getting an upper end

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

of the jurisprudence meet we have to open one open

00:02:14--> 00:02:14

like they just

00:02:16--> 00:02:21

have too much they have too many things open and at once it loses its ability to

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

okay we're good we're good

00:02:28--> 00:02:29

all right No we're good

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

like when I walk away from the

00:02:39--> 00:02:39


00:02:44--> 00:02:45

costume presents

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

just miscast

00:02:56--> 00:02:57

just cast it out

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

if you

00:03:04--> 00:03:06

were to press representing

00:03:09--> 00:03:10

do look spike

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

Yeah, I wouldn't I wouldn't say don't do it that way

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

I am

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

so as

00:03:32--> 00:03:33


00:03:34--> 00:03:35


00:03:39--> 00:03:41

don't know why I don't know why this works. Okay.

00:03:43--> 00:03:48

So we talked a little bit about intention. That's, that's number. That's the first thing.

00:03:52--> 00:04:21

Second thing is a little though, because you're reading prayer, your will do matters more than anyone else's will do it behind you. Right, because you're leading the prayer. So someone doesn't have to just harm themselves if you don't have to, you're harming everybody and you're ruining everything so you have to make sure that you will do is appropriate. You're doing now usually the ablution but I'm talking about everything going to the bathroom, make sure that you're taking care of your ohata make sure that you make a fool will do without the socks like take off the site and make a fool will do before you pray waiting on the socks okay if you're praying alone if you're

00:04:21--> 00:04:30

being Imam don't do it that way because some people don't accept that opinion to begin with. So to be kind of respectful and mindful other people have different ways of different

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

they don't but that's you know, so it's a matter of a minor like you know, the you do as an Imam, you have to you have to do things that encompass everything that kind of include everybody that open up the door for everyone to enjoy what's happening if they're going to feel trusting what's going on. So yeah, I mean, when you're praying alone, do what you want on your being Imam take extra care of your will do the extra care of how you go to the bathroom and make people do not on your socks like appropriately the way you would do it because you are carrying this m&m For everybody else in front of behind you. Dress

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

Code make sure you're covering your head. You come here without a cover on your head. I'm booting you up that door over there. You come here with something on your head. You have to have a puppy on your head right? And if you don't have one, find someone to give it to you. This is important. It's not fuddled insula. These things are fooled right? These are just Sunon that you can easily pray without them however, because we are again we're trying to we're trying to serve the people behind us. So you don't leave a reason for someone to criticize something or to feel uncomfortable about something that's your job so yeah, this is your job your job is to make everybody feel included and

00:05:33--> 00:05:45

uncomfortable. So a part of that is a dress code you don't come any legislation legions who was Jamar you come you're wearing Jana, you're wearing something appropriate making good Libya, you have a tortilla on your head.

00:05:47--> 00:06:13

And you don't make anything compromising anything that can you anything see through or something stripped, don't come with socks with holes in them. When you make suits, you would like it we can see your your your foot need to take care of this stuff. This piece here is important. Again, when you're praying alone, none of this matters. When you're praying email and people are behind you. You don't leave this is your job is not to leave room for people to feel uncomfortable. That's your job. That's why we're doing it. That's what we're doing here. Are we trying to make people feel uncomfortable and their parent will actually enjoy salah? That's the answer to a question you have

00:06:13--> 00:06:45

to answer yourself answer. Ask yourself every time I am here to allow people to enjoy this experience as much as possible. So how do I do that? Well, I take care of this and this and this I take care of certain things so I don't come in dressed in a way that some people will look as wiser you look like he just walked out of a mechanic shop. What is it? Like not every Imams always have something on their head what is actually a pseudonym for you to cover your head when you're praying as an imam. So make sure you come in with this stuff. And I actually had ordered a bunch of of hats and stuff in September. I ordered it in September from Turkey and they still haven't sent it to me

00:06:45--> 00:06:50

it will lie It's like nine or 10 of them with a smile at the moment so just in case people want to trigger yourself.

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

I got like I'm very upset that they haven't sent it. I ordered in September so that it would be it had a nice day. I still don't have it. So I don't know if I have it yet before Ramadan, but make sure you have something like that we were coming in Yeah. I mean, just find someone who has it but honestly, there's no thought philosophy in the world anymore close we're out

00:07:14--> 00:07:16

Yeah, covered up with

00:07:22--> 00:07:50

you're trying to listen the stuff like don't like I remember you were praying once and on the back of your thing was like a tiger who was staring me in the face. I'm like, What are you doing? I can tell you right behind him. I made the mistake of looking at something flashy, like Tiger going like this to me. I don't know exactly what No, no, don't do that. Like, be very careful. These things matter. Like these things you'll be you'll be surprised at the stupid stuff that people will come and talk about it. I shouldn't say the word stupid. But the simple things that people will come in and you really get upset about and honestly, why why open the door to that you can say well, you

00:07:50--> 00:08:20

know, this is not important. I agree with you. But you're not here to defend yourself into being combative, you're here to serve people. So listen, any reason for someone to feel uncomfortable by doing things by the book by doing it exactly the way it needs to be done. So you're dressed appropriately. So there's no room for anyone to feel comfortable about it. Again, we're professionals, we're doing this the way it needs to be done. Why? Because our goal here is to is to help people you know, be closer to Allah subhanaw taala if I know that I were dressed in a certain way the person behind me is going to be obsessed are thinking about the thing that I'm not doing

00:08:20--> 00:08:48

right and they're not gonna be focused on their prayer because they well that's their problem. Sure, but But why my job is to help them so maybe I can I can help them by just doing this right. Does that make sense? This is my this is my philosophy. This is what I think and this is the profit out of this was that I would do stuff like he cared more about people's outcomes and what they would benefit from so he would do things in a certain way. So there's a few things cover your head wear something traditional and to beware of compromised clothing. You're wearing something wrong and you make so you wouldn't I can see the little thing in your back No no no did you dress in a way where

00:08:48--> 00:08:50

you're covering everything up but we're not seeing stuff we don't want that.

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

Oh go back a bit.

00:08:53--> 00:09:29

Okay, so to fight Yeah. So Fatiha has to be very clear, you cannot mumble In fact, you can be very clear, you have to have a flow I can't have you like messing up so to fit how where you're losing breath or getting out of falling out of breath running out of breath at a certain point and then going back again and then the flow has to be you know, very easy, you have to ease people I should have been kind of talking we have to ease people into the citation with the with the flow that you have. So to have a system meaning every time you stand to read sort of idea this is the system you don't play around with it until you are a master of

00:09:31--> 00:09:54

vocals are the element that should happen Kenny was explaining to you do not play around just the same citation every time I certify to exactly the same way every time I pray. It helps people get into a system in a rhythm it just comforts them if every time you're reading it differently and then you're messing it up and you're gonna have to do you're gonna start you know who you know sloppily Mr. T mostly law.

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

But also Latina I will kick you Miani in your behind. No, you saw at the right places, whatever it is, you suck.

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

Just get your get your system for Fatiha. Make sure you So yeah, that's how you always do it every time you say it. This is how it comes out. It's nice, it's a nice flow. Everything is clear, why is it moving on its own? And then make sure that you say I mean yes

00:10:17--> 00:10:40

don't read it differently every time. Unless unless you have two systems that are that are screwed down perfectly, meaning you have two ways of reading certified you know how to do them really well don't make up new ways to recertify every time you stand to recertify to just read it in a certain way and read it that way every time just perfect. Yeah, because it's very again it sets up the stage for what's coming next and then when you're reading the verses that's different yeah

00:10:48--> 00:10:57

so if you read part you have three or four times just before rocket how many different ways I'm going to hear certified to hear from you

00:10:58--> 00:10:59

differently than anything

00:11:01--> 00:11:35

Yeah, I'm gonna hear one way repeated four times, right that's I want to hear from you gave me one way if you do have two ways that you are perfected, but you perfect your their, their their perspectives, you know what to do, and then you can alternate fine, but I don't think you're there yet. Maybe you were I'm not I just one way I just read one way. And then your camera afterwards is like which I became explain, but firstly, I just stick to one way. Remember, like I said, I'll give you a few points. Memorize one way to do it, get it down, like to the to the detail and just read it that way every time. It really does calm people, it eases people into the locker and it calms them

00:11:35--> 00:12:09

down because you're not struggling. You're not jumping around back and forth within the VA has been a slow system of you know exactly where you stop. And when I for example, in Somalia, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Rahmani Raheem e Maliki you'll meet the industry stop. Yeah, can I do a year? Can I stand you next time? And you know, set up an email. So it all Lavina and I'm telling him not to bury him with a ball like, whoa, what's in three sections? That's how I do it? Sometimes. Yeah. Can I do it? Yeah, I'm gonna start, you know, who do you know, set up a new study. So I have two ways of going kind of breaking down the sections. But I know that I really wanted to do them

00:12:09--> 00:12:21

over 20 years, so I'm comfortable. And they won't break. I want to, you know, play around too much with 5g. So it's pretty simple. So you should do the same thing, have a system have a flow? And then say at the end, I mean, you're you're in and you're supposed to say I mean, yeah.

00:12:24--> 00:12:45

However you want just make sure it's, it's audible. So when a ball lean me like I say it that way, and then who they want to say it longer. They want to do whatever they want to do. Like you're not waiting for people to work with you. You're doing your own thing. You're reading fat guy, you're doing your own. I mean, you don't read citation, they're just there to enjoy the right that makes sense. Like you're just kind of you're providing everything yeah

00:12:53--> 00:13:08

no, no, no, no. And don't wait for anything. I mean, take a breath and go on. Don't give people any time at all, not even a shot. We don't do the grunt work we follow the rules, even though like I'm teaching that we're following the Hanafi and humbling opinion on this and

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

yet even for the fall, we just we just get we just keep on going.

00:13:14--> 00:13:45

Because the Japanese have a way out of it, meaning the mom is not accountable. If the Imam is not giving them time, they can just start reading and if emails are studying and stop and that's good enough for them. Pretty important I should be clear, we're not mumble stuff practice make sure that all the letters are coming out right? You have a letter that's not coming out right that's going to be problem is gonna be four times it's gonna come out wrong four times you really listen to something wrong. So make sure that you work on five to perfect fit and before Ramadan is a really good thing to do it make sure your system is nice yeah nice flow missing I mean at the end it can be

00:13:45--> 00:13:46

a lot

00:13:47--> 00:13:50

so a voice and tone when it comes to the tech via so

00:13:52--> 00:13:58

so if your institute right close your eyes isolated Institute, you don't you don't see the man and you hear a law.

00:14:00--> 00:14:31

You expect the man to be standing up breathing for fight? Yeah. What do you expect him to be? The because of the tone? Allahu Akbar, well, I'm definitely sending us your Allahu Akbar. And then I'm sitting down and copper people are standing up. Because there's the guy who's doing it doesn't understand how to do Tolan. Like it's just if you're continuing, give it a little bit of a movement. If you're done, bring it down, like bring it down a little bit like Chicago, Kenny was explaining to kind of up and down. So the voice and tone for the career has to be appropriate with what's happening next. Right. If you're, if you're coming, if you're, if you're ending that like I should

00:14:31--> 00:14:48

have a certain it should be more it'd be lower tone kind of towards the end. And if you're standing up, then it should be a little bit more kind of octave and higher, higher level higher volume, and make sure it's audible again, I got a little hope. Hello. No, no, no.

00:14:49--> 00:15:00

I have to hear it a lot at the bell, give it give it a nice, this is the deal, right and you're doing it. People should be doing it behind you based on the fact that you're doing it so so give it make sure it's audible make sure it's clear

00:15:00--> 00:15:28

here and make sure that you have a nice tone to it with your voice when you're moving around so people know what's happening timing. So it really depends on what if we're standing here, you should go down hola hola como. So you just kind of say it towards me I like to have it easy is when we're going down or coming up that people get a little bit confused. So I usually tell people who are you new, say to come in when you're on the ground, because if you because they don't know how I will say it up here, or they'll say down, I'd rather down there because if you say it up here, Allahu Akbar, the guy who's already on the ground, and you're still just kind of bending your torso. So so it's

00:15:28--> 00:15:40

very laid down, but the right way to do it. And this is the you know that your you guys have been doing this for a few years, you know, I would do it this way. If I were you, I would just go down the moment my knees hit the floor, I say Allahu Akbar, and then you're close. And then they can't, you know, they can't beat you in terms of

00:15:41--> 00:16:10

speed. And then we were coming up, it's okay to kind of be almost standing before you say Allahu Akbar, that's fine. Like, if you're coming up from sujood kind of be almost standing just before your back is straight, you can say Allahu Akbar. And that's fine. And give them a moment everyone come up, and they start reciting historical facts. So there's those timings are important. Just don't make sure you don't say a lot what and then move, it should be you're moving, saying Allahu Akbar, or towards the end of the movement, try not to do it at the end of the exact end of the movement, like after the movement is done, try not to do it after you're already down there. Because

00:16:10--> 00:16:34

people are getting very confused. I used to I tell you, younger people, I tell them to do that, because they don't know. I've tried the other part, I tried to undo it as you go down. And that just means for them, Allahu Akbar them, they go down, and then it's a mess, because now people are already on this floor. And they haven't made it down yet. So I tell them, just just do it after you move. But the professional way, the proper way that suddenly is as you're going down towards coming towards the end, you'd say Allahu Akbar, and then people would follow you. Does that answer your question? You were asking you. Okay?

00:16:35--> 00:16:37

Did you have a different question about that? Was it okay?

00:16:46--> 00:16:50

Don't memorize them by heart, like, I know, I just have to, I need these cues to remind me of what I'm gonna talk about.

00:16:57--> 00:17:02

Okay, so the movement, a pair, so the method and the duration. So when it comes to movement,

00:17:03--> 00:17:37

how you move it specifically here is the kind of when you're going down, Don't fall, don't fall down, don't slam into the ground, right? So go either go down with your hands first or go down with your knees first. Either way, it's fine. It doesn't doesn't make that much of a difference. But make sure that you you, you don't make too much noise when you're when you're making these movements. And make sure that the way your feet look, when you're sitting that I talked about, I think I talked about that, or do I not know I don't want to talk about here. So make sure when you're doing juice. So stay away from this one. Okay, I don't want to see this. So you get rid of this. So either this

00:17:37--> 00:17:42

where you're sitting on one and the other one is up, either way, or just easily.

00:17:44--> 00:18:05

Very simple. I use this because my feet don't work anymore. So that's it, but don't do these two to one standing up. That's the one that the least evidence to support. And, again, we're trying to stay away from controversy. And some of you don't want people to see something say, Well, no, he was pretty like that and have to explain to them well, this was this Imam said, I don't have time for this. Just Just Just get out of the controversy that we don't have to answer these questions. Yes.

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

You can do either you can do either or

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

less, what you do is

00:18:14--> 00:18:22

you can just put them on top of each other or whatever you want anymore. If you have a broken foot, that's an interview. I was gonna hold you accountable for that. For record. Yeah.

00:18:24--> 00:18:26

No, so don't do this.

00:18:29--> 00:18:35

Don't do this has to be up. If you put them down, just put them on top of each other. Okay.

00:18:36--> 00:18:44

That makes sense. Okay. For scheduled as soon as easy, but totally cool. I think that's important. So no,

00:18:46--> 00:19:04

you're not looking at your socks. So you're going to put your expand your head, you could extend your, your elbows look to be straight, and hold on to your knees. And they're going to have your your back nice and straight where I can put a cup of water on it. And you'll be looking down right there. Okay, not like this. It's not like this. Like this

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

you can eat like a cereal or something off the guy's back. Yeah.

00:19:15--> 00:19:15


00:19:18--> 00:19:30

No, no. So their back is supposed to be straight. So if they can't extend their arms, they can. They can have it on the outside of it's very rare. That's very rare. Usually there's like, like NBA basketball players who can't do this. But the majority of people are able to do that.

00:19:32--> 00:19:33

mean go do it again.

00:19:36--> 00:19:41

No, if you put your straighten your arms up and straighten it out. You're good. Not perfect.

00:19:42--> 00:19:51

Yeah, that's good. You know, your image is straight, you're fine. It's okay. If your arms are fully straight, that's okay. But I don't like the this thing. No, no, or this thing.

00:19:53--> 00:19:53

See the difference?

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

Don't like this, or like this. So that's what I choose. For you.

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

Oh, that's what I care about in terms of the movements, and then duration.

00:20:06--> 00:20:48

Duration matters watch Hunter has to be here, because he's going to cause like a problem if he doesn't. So So duration is important here. I can't you just, it's very simple. You go down Allahu Akbar. Subhanallah Ali, Mohammed. Ali Mohammed a little bit behind me a lot. Now I don't have to. I say I'm sure Hyundai says 105 times seven times. I do Subhanallah Subhanallah the liberal democratic government Cebu headquarters is that your your shareholders may go up again. Your internal we do want to leave the mythology behind you hoping for more. We're not marathoning the salah like we're not jogging through it, but we're not we don't want to make people bored that makes sense. That's

00:20:48--> 00:21:23

that's the key here. You make them they're praying and they're always hoping that they're getting there we got a couple of more seconds of everything that's why they're that's how they're enjoying it right? They want you to give it more time not less. So when it comes to a gorgeous do send me I like it a lot better or I can handle and Kathy you don't even know well I can fee if you want to see me as somebody that's right now then you're good just go down. Don't Don't you don't need to be exude Subhanallah get out of your Humvee three times make a simple da up gets very, very obvious very obvious very five times if you wanted to, because then you keep the timing Yanni keep the

00:21:23--> 00:21:52

timing all the you exaggerate the timing and can make people very tired. If you take more ideas solid also get convoluted. And then people stop actually enjoying praying behind you and they want you're distracting them because it's not everyone knows how to like if you're if you're like Oh, I'm fine I can do is record for another minute. And I'll still be focused on the speed and the concept itself. And I'm enjoying it. Most people don't have that they didn't weren't educated to do this. They don't have any training. And they don't know what they're saying and don't even understand what they're saying. So you want to keep them want, you know, you want to kind of give them something

00:21:52--> 00:22:00

that they can deal with. That makes sense. You don't wanna make it too long. So the duration for the movements are very important for me, even when it comes to praying Jonnie,

00:22:01--> 00:22:03

comfortable when you're standing.

00:22:04--> 00:22:35

For example, this fourth Third and Fourth Reich on your own recite Surah Fatiha, recite it moderately, like don't do hydro and don't do. Do you like something in the middle, and then go down, don't stand there for another, you know, extra 30 seconds as well. Everyone standing behind you like we're done, body is finished. I don't know what else to do. Most people don't know what to do. Like, you should say Subhan Allah and hamdulillah with Allah Allah, which will be my next record. But most people don't know that. So just read your Fatiha and then go down. And if they still not done, they can take a second and finish and then follow. It's not a problem.

00:22:36--> 00:23:09

The thing and then for Judas is Jehovah well, can not take too much time for Jehovah. Every time he prays. I'm praying to God that he doesn't think this is the first a second teacher hood because I wanted to go I don't think this is secondary, because I like London, I'm gonna have like a big, big fuss, because you take it you make people worry, like does he know that this is the first shot holder and I should just be careful with that. So just go through again, just say it normally, once you're done, if you'd like I was I too quick, was too quick. Do what needs to be done. And then get up. If you're if you're worried like was this too quick, Say Subhan Allah be handy Subhanallah Ali,

00:23:09--> 00:23:37

and then go. So you're just adding that little piece if you're if you're if like I don't know if it was too quick. That's all you need to do. Don't sit there thinking about Johnny, what you're going to eat after you're done or you're wondering about assignments and stuff, just just going to keep it moving it you're much better than you were before. But there was a couple of times where I was like, I don't know that it's going to go, yeah, because if people get worried. And then and for the last show, same thing. Don't make it too too long. Like don't, don't, don't stretch it out. But don't be too quick. If you're too quick, then and people don't get through the Ebrahimi and then they wonder

00:23:37--> 00:23:52

if you've been gone through them. And they start wondering if you know what to pray altogether. So it's so important that you give that enough time. That's just on duration. Most of you are good at this stuff. So it's not a problem. But just watch out for the timing, the timings here the duration of every movement is actually very important. And it makes a big difference in

00:23:54--> 00:24:29

the record duration. So this is just helpful because these are these are calculations I've done over the years because I you know, I prayed. This will be my 20th year. Yeah, I'm doing it publicly with a hokhmah. Sorry, when I 17. I'm 37. So this is like 20 years, I have 21 years now that I think about it last year was 20. But anyways, doesn't matter. Like it's been. I've actually done eight I've done 20 I've done different things. And I've actually calculated them I've I put a timer, like for a couple of weeks in a row to see exactly how each block takes and how much is just to have an idea. So if you have seven minutes for each for 20 Plus, like I totally with hutzpah, there'll be

00:24:29--> 00:24:58

seven minutes for a record that makes sense. And then and then 10 minutes for an eight plus three. And maybe you're like I don't want to like I mean, I mean two, I mean a collection of two. Sorry, like that's I should have said that the I don't know why it didn't. So I'm talking about like the collection of two to one like, I don't know. Yeah, so it's seven minutes when we're doing 20. If you're doing a full job, obviously with 107 minutes is all unique as a page by page seven minutes. Then if you're doing eight plus days, are you doing two pages and a little bit then it's usually around 12 minutes and then 10 minutes for a 10 plus three, which is what we're doing here. We're

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

doing 10 plus three which are

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

For those that aren't 10 minutes per each, for each, like a minute, and then three or four minutes for an uncut Metalia and there's a there's a sad face at the end right there. You don't pray that ever in your life and don't be a part of that stuff if people do not document that oh, yeah, just let whoever wants to do it always be a part of a hokhmah. Wherever you are here. I

00:25:19--> 00:25:32

don't see why you guys need one on campus. Who needs it? Like a who's who's who on camp who requires a who is what is the population of students that require it to be on campus and can't make it to the centers around? This is my only question. That's all.

00:25:35--> 00:25:38

They wouldn't be able to make it to the massage and close by it's hard.

00:25:40--> 00:25:52

Okay, yeah, I mean, I haven't I'm not saying you shouldn't do and you're saying I'm saying like, I think they would enjoy it more if they came to a masjid and, you know, kind of embarked on the journey with people and massage and stuff like that, I think. I think on your own on the on campus may not be as enjoyable.

00:25:54--> 00:26:25

It's up to you every one overnight. That's totally up to you. I think doing a hot tamale on campus may be hard. I think it made me think it'd be difficult I don't think it was gonna do it that there. But what I'm saying for you is someone who will embrace racism upon every year and cares, always do that. But wherever you are in your life, if you don't fight unless you're doing admin, just go home and pray on your own. And recite the fold you need to see this is the month of the Quran you read read like, is up and down stuff anywhere you just kind of digesting the food that you ate him from getting a little bit of workout. That's not just be careful with these things.

00:26:27--> 00:26:40

So full duration, so 20 Plus One will be around an hour and 35 minutes. 10 plus three, which we're doing here an hour and 25 to 30 minutes and then Notaro we should be less than 45 minutes in general. Ridiculous. The first 15 minute 20 minutes on all your hands. That's not appropriate.

00:26:42--> 00:27:15

Here we are an hour and 30 minutes like an hour and a half altogether. beginning till the end. And these is totally within do I always remind people before you start I always tell people this is this is what I always say it. Yeah, to remind people because they have no idea what's happening. Most people have no idea where they are anymore. They just they're just praying. So let them know that this is shutdown. This is whatever you make sure you make that announcement because it's really it's your turn. Don't make me How would you like to remind me just just make sure you do this may remind them for HFM remind them for winter stick to two plus one never do like the three at a time.

00:27:16--> 00:27:31

Just not that it's not acceptable. Islamically totally is a part of them. But most people just aren't accustomed to it like a very very confused as they were going into sharper. And then this is one record but you're just easier that way for most people do I should be 10 to 15 minutes. It shouldn't be more than that.

00:27:32--> 00:27:42

I know you don't have to tell me. I know. I know what I do. But you for you guys 1015 minutes tops don't go beyond that. Once you build enough marriage in your community. You can do whatever you want. You shouldn't

00:27:43--> 00:27:44


00:27:47--> 00:27:50

but that was that was the end of the when I'm done. I was

00:27:53--> 00:27:54


00:27:57--> 00:27:57

that was

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


00:28:02--> 00:28:19

I brought it down a notch a little bit the last few years but still, it's supposed to be around half an hour or more like it's supposed to be that but for regular within 1015 minutes tops is what it's supposed to be. We're not trying to make people tired but honestly no good people don't really do too upset overburdened. So it's an important time for them to kind of embrace and learn.

00:28:20--> 00:28:33

So So I was thinking, I don't know, I think the best thing for you to do is just go back to the recordings of though you have last year and just listen to the first three nights of the row. Yeah, and those are the days that you should memorize the ones that I start out the month with

00:28:36--> 00:28:37

fine just runs things by me.

00:28:39--> 00:28:44

Just because sometimes they are telling me what certain things that are gonna say something out of what

00:28:49--> 00:29:20

Yeah, is there anything I can be can be aggressive? I don't I don't agree with them outside of this country even I don't agree with the being very aggressive. And uh, yeah. So, but just just for your own sake, so that you don't say something and then people don't know it. So but no, no, you're welcome to to be creative. And to look for what others do. I'm not I don't have a specific curriculum of drive that I need you to adhere to. I just need you to have like stay within the realm. So I can send you some stuff but I think it's better for you if you just take an hour or so and just go through the first three nights of Ramadan last year and just write down like the stuff

00:29:20--> 00:29:27

that you've heard or memorize a little bit of that and that should be enough. And I'll look I'll look it up for you just think as I have to I don't know where to do

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

it. 10 minutes I think should be should be gonna usually start with some hand. Right? And I think I think we talked we talked about that for a second or so I talked about that here. I'll talk about in a moment. Just avoid repetition. So the moment you feel like you don't know what to say next you're going to repeat something you said before, sort of Allah Allah Muhammad, and go down don't repeat the same job like don't just repeat it hoping to remember whatever it is that you forgot.

00:29:53--> 00:30:00

Yeah, avoid that stuffer. Avoid that and I'll talk about that in a moment even avoid, avoid repeating yourself for

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

Any reason you're not no don't do that. Do you look you say well sometimes you can do that yeah when you're when you're at that level of that shift go ahead and do whatever you want you don't need to listen to anything I say but now that you're you're kind of just learning how to do this and you're kind of building your your repertoire and building also your your skill set and then just listen to do what I'm telling you because this you want to pick up you want to get in the right habits and the later on you can you can you know

00:30:24--> 00:30:30

kind of go away or go astray from what I'm telling you do your own thing and follow your own rules but you'll do that based on your own understanding of

00:30:44--> 00:30:44


00:30:45--> 00:30:46


00:30:52--> 00:30:53

with us

00:31:02--> 00:31:05

nice nice he he's he is very

00:31:07--> 00:31:11

he loves his friends and their friends of his friends he's very open minded does I love it? No, I

00:31:13--> 00:31:41

cannot I don't run in draw. Like I had young people like a Hamza and they think someone that would make dua and then I would correct them, like into art like they're making it forgot what's next. I just tell them what's next. And they keep on going. So I don't mind doing that for you. Like I can help you sometimes you forget things. But in general, if you have like a, you know, you had one more day out you're gonna make and you forgot it. Don't repeat. I've just added this, okay? He'll do anything. Oh, you'll get another chance. Like it's not a problem, but repetition is a big turn off if people don't like it. So avoid it as much as possible.

00:31:43--> 00:31:58

Always start with the praising of Allah subhanaw taala. You're okay, just starting Aloma enough even today. There's evidence for that, but I prefer you not to always start with some form of hum de la Monica hamdu Hamden cathedral, even Mubarak and V Hamdani, working Amica Yash Koroma, Zita Acharya Tanaka Allahu Allah can hum do

00:31:59--> 00:32:05

like a look at hamdulillah who were like a shoe cuckoo cuckoo. You can share these slides with everybody on it just after the end

00:32:08--> 00:32:22

Yeah, but don't do that just start with hunt. Don't get too creative with stuff like the beginning at the beginning just just stick so here's here's the thing everything you do in life when you're just learning stick to the rules the basic rules that you're being taught

00:32:28--> 00:32:28


00:32:33--> 00:32:57

yeah, just stick to the hump exam for now. Again, people get very confused with stuff like that to me but maybe disappear you can do work in Nigeria or you do it in Dwight Hudson or something a little bit of that but in other sort of what you don't have any I can no roll with it we don't have a lot of evidence to support that that's that he'd ever did that Allah here. So that was that was not wrong, but there's no evidence to support it. And it's taking it takes a good chunk of time out of your DUA so it can kind of tire people again, I want people to

00:32:58--> 00:33:20

pray behind you with and hope for more in wish you don't give I don't want it the opposite. That people told the story later on as they tell it of mine 45 minutes, broke our feet. So you want to get a peep and so it's important to kind of keep that in mind. I'm starting with a lot of things acceptable but I'd rather hummed it you can take a good amount of time just doing him that's fine. And just be as Alright, as long as you don't

00:33:21--> 00:33:55

spend too much time doing it like because he would spend like I don't know 10 minutes just doing that. Sure, organize your data and prepare beforehand so make sure you have like three sections or four sections, four little paragraphs of Da I'll make dua for this let me draw for that. It'll make you decide for a couple of things doesn't have to be too too colorful or too you know, creative just something simple is very nice. And show your emotion as much as possible don't don't Yeah, is this solving members not offending them, like the guy who's you know, you can understand anymore at all, every time they make dua, no, try to control yourself as much as possible. Also, at the same time

00:33:55--> 00:34:03

with the right intention, try to find you know, some joy in what you're doing and try to find some pleasure in Earth as you're when you're doing it as well. So, just be mindful of these things. When you're

00:34:06--> 00:34:41

not supposed to, but if you do it is no big deal. But it's not it should be it should be like some scholars, okay, allow people to read with Tajweed like books or filtering books of Hadith. Most scholars aren't like there's a lot of difference of opinion here. I'm not a big fan of it. I feel like there should be there's a Quranic thing, maybe not but if you do, it is not a problem like I won't fault you for it. And always end with Salah and maybe Allah is also to make sure that you always end your DUA with the Dallas Auto Salon. I always got to have like I always every da la la Martina for dunya Hi stuff. That's my that's my little, you know, cliche at the end. So I so have

00:34:41--> 00:34:49

your cliches like, how you begin how you ended and a few things different than the middle. I'll send you some stuff in Sharla anyways, but maybe just do that. Just listen just for your own music kind of

00:34:51--> 00:35:00

mistakes during prep. This is very important when you need to make an extra sujood. So when do you not two very, very important. So if you're making a record and you stand up

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

You say Allahu Akbar, instead of saying I live in Hamlet, you don't need to do anything. Don't mix it yourself or that like that, that doesn't require anything. If you're coming up, however, from the first election, you sit down, and you're supposed to stand up and do a second look, that requires to do so, if you're coming up, you're supposed to sit down, but you stand up and think you have another icon you don't, then that requires you to sell as well. But make sure you know how to do so. Low equity, go down low equity, sit up, low equity go down, or shut up, and there's no way you can right away, right, because you're gonna have already done the the Sheldon

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

Salatin Brahimi. Before you do so you just sell and that's that's the easier way

00:35:43--> 00:35:48

Yeah, no, no, you go back down, you mix you so and then you mix it, you

00:35:53--> 00:36:16

know, so you don't just sit down, and then use a lot a lot, because you know, as acknowledging of your mistake, what else things. So if you forget Fatiha at the beginning, for example, you just start writing the Surah You don't need to do so for that. You don't need to use over that. But the majority of opinions others think that you should but I stick to the one that you don't. Because you just it's not really a

00:36:18--> 00:36:27

is there a citation? It's not a movement, like I think Susa was mostly for remembering or forgetting, or extra or less movements.

00:36:30--> 00:36:42

Yeah, so we're not gonna do that we're just gonna stick to the stick to the I guess there's different without having different ways of doing this. I'm gonna stick to one way that's simple people understand so that we don't confuse the heck out of them because you can be really confusing. Finishing you can also sell me Why don't you?

00:36:52--> 00:37:12

No, you can't, you can only not do that, if it's Russia, or Lahore or Muslim. Also meaning for the first issue you can't sit down again. But this is the second Tisha hood. This is the final Tisha hood right into Raka. This is the final Tisha hood. So, now you sit down because this is the broken, but if you're praying a four unit, prayer like boho, also and Asia, and you stand up.

00:37:13--> 00:37:40

Like if you're doing a shot, you stand up, instead of sitting for the first showed, you're already standing up and say subhanallah, you don't go down again. If you go down again, you invalidate your prayer. Till salata can solidly rock because, because you're going from Oregon to a wajib. And that ruins prayer. But in total, yeah, this is the only Tisha hood. So you know, the intention was to like, you can't pray a third. If you pray a third, you invalidate your prayer because the intention was to you can't do three. Okay. I think that's it. I think, what else? Do

00:37:41--> 00:37:49

you have any questions you're welcome to ask. I had a better list in my mind. About what do you require? And what doesn't, they're all going to come to me after we finish this. And I will start running out to you guys to tell you.

00:37:54--> 00:37:54


00:38:00--> 00:38:23

Yes, so definitely, I think I put that there somewhere. It'll come up. But yeah, you're right. So if there's a session to Tila, you're responsible for returning and saying, there'll be a stage to Tila and the first or second blackout, you have to announce it clearly. don't mumble it into the microphone, make it clear. So you will know because you'll don't know what's happening. And then the you're going on the ground and people don't know why. People don't always say the law is illegal. This man is crazy. He's making seafood before he's making a record and they don't know what's going on.

00:38:25--> 00:38:39

And then when you come up, you don't fit Hi, again, a, you come up, you don't realize it again, I used to make that mistake a lot. For some reason, he's always come up and just recited it again. And they were telling me like I wouldn't listen, just keep on going and doesn't make a difference. But you shouldn't do it. Like it's not appropriate to keep your composure when you can mistake Don't worry.

00:38:40--> 00:38:43

Don't don't calm down.

00:38:46--> 00:39:10

But I find people get like very tense and they get you know, they start to panic, don't panic, you're fine, you made a mistake, not a problem. We'll like you'll hear me behind you or someone kind of coaching your what to do, like in terms of what's next. What you remember. And just don't, don't worry, every Everyone makes mistakes is totally normal. But it's important to kind of stay composed when you do so that you can hear whatever the cueing behind you is so you do the right thing and you don't get lost if

00:39:11--> 00:39:39

you haven't had a problem with these but just want to bring it up in case of having them. So more common, most common thing for getting the first show hood obviously this isn't a shot. I'm not gonna give you a lot of a shot, honestly. But I give you any I shot a shot. Yeah, I have to prove to me like a few things. You have to I think at this point, we have enough portfolio I think you have to have ijazah. I think you have to be a little bit more Yaniv committed to this if you want to take the shot because it is like the is the most important prayer of the night. Basically, it's more important than the winter. So I'll be giving you a shot this year, most likely. But I do want you to

00:39:39--> 00:40:00

keep make sure you know these things. Bring in for this for somebody who's standing up, you don't go down. You can't go down back down again. But then you do so at the end. So if you're standing up for the verses, you're holding the Pinilla you can't go down, you stay there, hold your ground. People will just follow and then you mix it up. So before you're asleep because you missed versus forgetting which locale you're in is another common thing and if you forget just

00:40:00--> 00:40:13

Do what you think is right and then someone accuse you just respond and make you so at the end, and then saying the wrong thing could be, as I gave you this, I'm gonna learn how to say Allahu Akbar, for example, we're going down to somebody does, okay? You don't meet me or anything.

00:40:16--> 00:40:19

Like the first line behind you, myself.

00:40:22--> 00:41:00

SubhanAllah. And if I if you don't understand, I can kill you with something different. I'm allowed to, like I'm allowed to, there's a little bit more leniency for me as someone who's kind of coaching you to kind of tell you what to do even invalidates my prayer, but I'll still tell you to do. You can listen, mistakes during a citation. So speed, not too fast, not too slow. Again, too slow is my biggest problem. So if you have the cream told you what to do, I told you to slow down a little bit here and there. Don't go slow down, just keep on going. Do not slow down at all. I slow again, slow down. And he later on in life when you're a bit more experienced. When you're when you have like,

00:41:01--> 00:41:33

really fixate up, you have your MACOM and you're in your rhythm and your tone perfected. You know what you're doing, then you can go ahead and make some slowing. I don't need I don't think, yeah, I think you just keep on going. Again, I don't want you to be reciting at a speed that people can't understand what you're saying. But just get on that rhythm and just move right because this is an hour and a half and people get tired quickly. And we're trying to again, we're trying to help the people behind us to pray. We're not trying to I don't want them to leave. I want them to bring how we have to make it available. You know, we're reasonable for them. So keep on that speed, calmness,

00:41:33--> 00:41:51

keep your composure always, especially when you mistake. Don't lose your mind if you forget something. Or if you make a mistake. Just pause for a second, let the person behind you correct you. Correct it move on with your life. Just keep on going. Don't get to Yanni, everyone makes mistakes all the time. It's a part of this whole process. So yeah.

00:41:56--> 00:42:31

We tell people we ask them, we asked we asked people not to do that. But no one of us will yell at it from the middle of the message over there. I tell him, I tell him, please don't like I correct people. I give you some time. And I sometimes let certain things go if I feel like you're struggling. Okay, because you know, this is not any Savoca or anything, we will allow it but but if you make a mistake, just if you hear something behind you, and you feel like you're making a mistake, just pause. Most of the time I will correct you when you take a breath. If you recite a verse, when you take a breath, I'll correct you. Then you can go back and you can get

00:42:32--> 00:42:33


00:42:36--> 00:43:09

Yeah, so that goes for Hamza as well. He should definitely not panic when he's, yeah, yeah. And then if you're slow one, you get one strike. With slowness if you're slow one strike, and then the next time you're slow, you're out. You have to have to keep up. The thing is slow in his last year shift by the lazy, okay was amazing. But it's very slow. It was taking a long time for there's no way to get into people getting tired. So just keep the rhythm going. I'm not saying that you read unclearly. I'm not saying that you've ruined touch. We've know all that has to be observed. And if I feel like your tweet is not good. I'll ask you to stop on your I may I may defer your lesson your

00:43:09--> 00:43:17

sections until your tweet is up to up to date and proper. But keep the rhythm run and moving so that people can enjoy what's happening. Yes.

00:43:21--> 00:43:32

Yeah, we fail to make a mistake. Pause. See if we're going to correct you. If we don't correct you keep on going. Right. So whenever you feel like you made a mistake, just pause and we'll, we'll tell you if

00:43:37--> 00:44:04

you Yeah, of course. Yeah. But I mean, you won't even have the time will people will jump out you will before you you know what I what I tell them they're not gonna listen. So if you just let make sure you hear what's being said, so that you know what the mistake is. Because the biggest problem is that you don't pause long enough, you don't listen. And then you don't know what the mistake is. And you go back and make the same mistake again. And then we forget you. And now you're gonna make another different mistake, because you're focused on the first one and then it's a complete mess because we haven't been able to just, again, stay calm. Here the mistake and then correct yourself

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

when you need a

00:44:07--> 00:44:07

little prayer front

00:44:09--> 00:44:19

desk in front of as long as enough standing right in front of the Imam was there, it's fine. As long as they're not right in front of the Imam. It's not a problem. They can pray it, but they don't see the taraweeh and how long were they prayed?

00:44:21--> 00:44:52

Yeah, but were they praying, they're praying, they're not praying for the cabinet, imams, they're up way behind, and then all the people are praying in front of them. So this is not a problem, only the 100 Thieves are extremely extremely against this. And there's still them is still 100 of us have like some of their scholars who will see permissibility in certain situations, the rest of them have their head with a lot of water with a need is fine and the need and right now we this is the space I can't go frankly we don't have a Malabo front is not set up that way. So we'll be praying here and then people can fill up this space up front and that's not a problem for students. Definitely not a

00:44:52--> 00:44:55

problem for fatigue. There's a little bit more. There's less.

00:44:56--> 00:45:00

There's more controversy around it, but I'll give the photo beforehand and if you're not coming

00:45:00--> 00:45:09

Trouble, okay? If you came here and there's no space here and you're not comfortable listening to what I'm saying to the to the veteran and Go play somewhere else, it's no problem. But I had there's no problem people running for

00:45:11--> 00:45:14

paying upfront eating for Joomla, even for even for Joomla. Yeah.

00:45:16--> 00:45:47

No, this will be split and they'll be split. Men and women here at minimum and there, we can kick the sisters over. That's not and that's not nice. You they're coming to pray. Again, you don't feel involved. When you're putting in a little box somewhere you don't feel like you're a part of much. This, I know that this is not optimal, because the space is small, and it's not huge. But they feel involved in their fee that they're a part of everything going on. And honestly, for men, I don't understand what the bother is for men, men and men are coming to me with this problem all the time. I don't understand. Just don't look behind. This little booklet I guess you're looking for what it

00:45:47--> 00:46:16

why you care. Why is this a problem for you? You come to the masjid just Why are you looking? Just look here? Look at me. I'm not good at it. I'm pretty enough. Just look at me. Say up here front. Let the sisters pray behind there's not a problem. Why are we why are we so uptight? No, we have to have a curtain? Why do you need a curtain? Why are you looking at what is behind your head? Do you just don't use the sage towards the Qibla. And you're fine. It's not a problem. This is something that the sisters actually it really does bother them. We've surveyed people and we've done when you when you slap a big curtain in front of people or you move them to a different part of the messier

00:46:16--> 00:46:33

where they're not involved. For them this they feel disengaged, and they feel like they're not you know, we don't want them to come. And I don't think that's fair, especially in the time that we're living in. We need to open you know, make sure these places are welcome for everybody. But so this place will be men and women and a front there'll be a space for the women and a space for the men as well. Yeah.

00:46:40--> 00:46:52

Oh no, you have to be here early. If you're leading, I started my dataset to half an hour before. Right? Within the first four or five sentences of my delis you better be walking in.

00:46:53--> 00:47:26

You have to be here early. You're You're bleeding and damaged somebody like everyone else you're leaving, I needed to be here early. So that you can your parents park without problem you find. You don't have to walk in with your feet on top of people because you want to get front because the place is full. You just walk you sit up there you take your spot up front, you do your morada you go right you can pull it pour yourself a nice cup of salt and drinkers were out with eyesight and enjoy yourself. But I need you if you're praying. If you're praying or your backup, just make it come come early. Just make sure you're here earlier again, this is your you're you're a part of the service,

00:47:26--> 00:47:40

you're offering this as a service to people you need to you need to show up Jonnie for things on time. Repetition don't repeat from the beginning. You repeat once from the beginning, you're done. I will not you're gonna you're so so if you recite me write a verse.

00:47:41--> 00:48:00

And then you stop in the middle of it. And you go ahead and you're you start from the beginning of the verse again. We're done. You're not We're not friends anymore. Anyway, we're not going to do not do that. So when you stop whatever verse that you're reading, when you stop, go maybe two or three words behind before and continue or continue from where you left off don't repeat the verse from the beginning

00:48:03--> 00:48:17

go to three words before don't go back to the beginning of the year. Don't go back to the beginning of the year don't do that. That is really that's very bothersome to everyone who's listening to you don't don't do that. I cannot emphasize the importance of not doing that yeah

00:48:19--> 00:48:19


00:48:24--> 00:48:54

yeah, so backup if you're a little bit incoming a little bit later, that's fine. Because you'll know if the person is not showing up a bit earlier so that's okay. But if you're leading I expect you to be upfront earlier on again, this is all about professionalism This is a month where you are offering this service you're a part of the neither of what we're doing here. You need to be professional if I'm here you should be here like we come together we live together we make sure that we run this appropriately we're prepared we know what we're doing and their reputation part I think was an example is a good example here that

00:48:55--> 00:48:57

maybe you should think about it

00:48:59--> 00:49:03

not everyone does it and I keep on asking people not to do it but they don't

00:49:17--> 00:49:24

so suppose for example that it means like including to employ your own machine equally Jacqueline Sita and want to be model fewer than half moon could you tell me what I've been

00:49:25--> 00:49:25

doing and

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

why? Why just won't come in? Well, we'll hook it up or go backwards. Why are you going to the beginning again, don't go to the beginning again. Don't don't go to the beginning of the year like like if you're if you lost your breath at a certain point, go back two or three words right and continue if you go back to the beginning what are you benefiting? Nothing you're just gonna you're just gonna lose your breath at the same point again so what's what's the point of going back to the giving

00:49:52--> 00:50:00

Yeah, so so just Yeah, so that that's obvious. I can I can sense when it's a forget forgetting thing, but when it's not forgetfulness is

00:50:00--> 00:50:06

just you're just being, you know, cute. Don't do it like that. Don't don't do it because you want you want people to enjoy the idea behind you.

00:50:07--> 00:50:32

We enjoyed it, go on, keep on going. It was very nice. He's like Allah keep on moving again, as you get more experienced. And as you get older as you perfect your craft and doing this, you'll know how to do this stuff a bit better, like you will become much better at doing this, it won't be a problem. But but for now, for now, just stick to the basics. Don't repeat. Like if you started in one point, you read you started with a read to the point B, right, you lost your breath, go back.

00:50:33--> 00:50:46

Don't go back to a don't start from a again, don't start from a against start from a point. Just before be or just continue. I won't hold you accountable if your work wasn't amazing, like I that's fine. But that's gonna sound behind if it's gonna be I'll point it out to you, I'll teach you

00:51:16--> 00:51:46

racked up like we'll have someone who is specifically holding them was probably one of the backup people. Like if your backup that night, you'll hold them as half and you'll correct so the person who's correcting is responsible to stay awake during Salah and know where the guy is. So the best thing is when I have someone standing there to correct and the guy who's correcting lost focus long time ago, he has no idea where the person who's reading is and other people are correcting and semesters, if you're responsible to correct then you need to keep stay focused so that you can help them because it's important and then agree on a system how this will work. Meaning make sure that

00:51:46--> 00:52:10

you know you're gonna be corrected for everything or not there has to be something agreed upon within the masjid because no one else from other missionaries are attending here I'm just talking about our system. But other message we have a different system, we're not going to correct unless the meaning changes or let's just go for something No, here I correct even a while or even is when Latina said I will correct you why because people you know everyone's can't wait for you. So we have to be correct, everything is good for your health. And it's just better for the system and for the for the work in general.

00:52:12--> 00:52:24

So conclusions, energy have high energy when you read, to bring in anyone you're coming in to recite, bring in the energy, the positive energy every citation. So I'm not saying you don't read with a low

00:52:25--> 00:52:53

toner, you know, John McCain, you know, he's very correct with starting low tone, but that has nothing to with the energy of your citation, like the enthusiasm and the and the joy of it is something that should be clear, you shouldn't be coming and reciting. And you're, you know, upset or you're, you know, you're half depressed, and you're bringing on a feeling that this is not bringing the positive energy. So people feel that, you know, you're enjoying this, you love this, you're doing this, because you really love the Quran, you want people to enjoy the client as well. So that energy is very important to me. And that energy is not something I can define for you on paper or

00:52:53--> 00:53:11

equate for you with numbers, it's something more than it's just based on your Inshallah, on the comprehension of what you're doing. So bringing that energy to people that people have a good time, like we it's a positive, it's a positive time for all of us who want to come on that positive note and really, really enjoy what we're doing to bring that positive energy when you're doing it. Consider eating habits.

00:53:13--> 00:53:42

So if you're doing if you're praying Imam, you're not going to come here and burp for F and into my face or a cookie or whatever. You're going to come here with a little bit of soup and demo and water. And you're hungry. Right? We're all ready. We're both it's fine. We'll pray. Yeah, I love it. It's my So again, I'm not I'm not saying they have to start. Some people are asking me can I eat a salad or you can eat a salad. I'm not saying that you can't eat anything. I'm just saying you don't, you're not filling you're not taking this is not your full meal. This is just something to keep you going that you're standing here, your ifif you're able to recite your you have the energy again, if

00:53:42--> 00:54:14

you come here and you're full, your energy is going to be low. By default. You're tired like your body's all of the blood is gushing towards the gut to digest the foods. So nothing's going up here. And your energy is low. So just considering these eating habits, it's important to know your part well memorize well keep composure. Keep I've said that three or four times keep it composure. Don't panic. Don't worry. Everyone makes mistakes all the time. I cannot tell you. Oh my gosh, I can't tell you how many mistakes Oh, poor people who had to pray behind me the first few years of whatever.

00:54:15--> 00:54:46

was not very fun for them. I'm sure. Just keep learning to keep your composure. Calm down. Okay, you make a mistake. Just listen. Correct. Move on. Don't let that one mistake ruin your your record. Don't Don't, don't be rude. Don't let a mistake ruin what you're doing. Enjoy. It's fine. Everybody has yet to learn how to make mistakes all the time. Enjoy what you're doing. People make mistakes at all times. It's nice. No big deal. I don't care. I don't it doesn't bother me. Like I'm not bothered if someone's making mistakes. I am bothered if you're not preparing. Like if I feel like you're not coming like if you're not professional, I get bothered. If you come in you're not dressed properly.

00:54:46--> 00:55:00

You don't come on time. You're not doing a mirage. Oh, well. That bothered you because you're not being professional. I need you to be professionally show up this year and you're trying your best you're memorizing and reciting what you know, and if you make some mistakes, that's fine. Everyone makes mistakes. I pray every year and butchers his thing ever

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

Every single year, he tries hard and he just, you know, he struggles with the, with the, you know, the kind of the public thing he's struggled with. And that's not a problem for me

00:55:14--> 00:55:14


00:55:16--> 00:55:47

oh, this is just an issue of experience and training, like, I think I can say is just, you know, again your intention. I don't look back. Only recently since I random asked you to actually look at people I used to pray never look back at all I extend up there, my face is probably just read until the NIC bug I don't even look like if I even have to. So I just look down at older people. And I'm not like I'm focused, I'm doing this for me, I'm listening to the Quran, I'm saying the Quran, I'm trying to listen to what I'm reciting as well, so I can enjoy it too. I'm not I'm not interested in who is there and who's watching who's listening. If you're always looking at people, you may see

00:55:47--> 00:56:15

someone and the neffs will say is sometimes definitely likes the intention of a specific individual individual. For some reason, this happened in repeated public public speaker something you remember to give me a hug. But you see somebody for some reason, you're just like, ah, hold on is seeing you try to put on a good show. But I started ruining your intention. So you have to kind of learn to kind of, you know, dodge that I'm not giving the hope of one person, I don't care what they think, or I shouldn't, I shouldn't care. So how do you kind of die that you just you come early, you sit up there, and your face is that way. So the mess, you could have two people behind you or 2 million

00:56:15--> 00:56:45

people behind you doesn't matter to you, you're standing there, you're focused on your work. And then you know, the reason that and because there's no perfect way to fix this. I coach and I train and I get you guys to kind of these sessions and I do pray up front and I start you with a small suit doesn't give you what you want. And it because it does take time for you to get fully comfortable to do this. So it's not something that there's no fix. quick fix for it. Like it's an issue that takes time. And briefcases remember what it was like the first time or second time you guys prayed and then how things got much better as time progressed. I remember, maybe you don't

00:56:45--> 00:56:56

remember, I remember how you guys were at when we first started out. I guess most of you guys played in Alabama. At some point. It's your first time like was Tula Carson lmm. I remember what it was like I remember this. I remember the your voices.

00:56:58--> 00:57:22

He it's not his voice. But he's, he can barely stand on his two feet. And that's fine. It's totally normal. It's no, it's no issue because I know I know what this is like, I've done this before. So I understand it and I don't hold you for it. But again, it takes time. So practice and training. You start sometimes in small groups, like maybe doing a hedge with a couple of friends praying Imam getting used to that feeling and then you don't start off at a big stage like or a big Masjid. That's not fair to you. Yeah.

00:57:24--> 00:57:25


00:57:27--> 00:57:27


00:57:29--> 00:57:29

definitely, yeah.

00:57:31--> 00:57:38

You can have any blank, if you're nervous, this can cause you blank out, you have no idea what's next. Okay? Again,

00:57:39--> 00:58:09

keep her composure. Um, don't let me tell you what it is. Take a deep breath. And go on. Don't let it ruin your citation. Don't let it ruin because your don't why why you're you got it and Shala you made a mistake, just enjoy what you're going to do next. So people, people don't care about this stuff. And really no one no one has time to count your mistakes. So you want to do it right. So you don't want to make mistakes and I understand we all do it. But keep your composure very important. Just calm down, take a deep breath. Deep breaths are very important and so as to get listen make sure that you're you're getting any you're getting corrected you understand exactly what the mistake

00:58:09--> 00:58:13

is, so you can correct it. And then just kind of refocus again

00:58:16--> 00:58:30

some days depending on the days but they'll always be someone here to listen to you. Like we'll make sure that that system is put up so somebody he'll do his deal check in specifically will be responsible like to help you guys to hear your ideas out like what you're gonna be reciting the day before he was actually up with some again good will also help

00:58:33--> 00:59:05

i would i would highly advise that I would highly advise that you wish to say that at least once to somebody to hear so that you can figure out where your mistakes are and where your weak spots are so that you can work on them a little bit. So and also the earlier during also time the better so you have time to kind of work on your you know your handle. And then you guys don't have a long six pages at most for any of you know for certain date, reset six pages, just make sure that you're comfortable with them you know, because you can still be very comfortable make mistakes, there's no way around it but it's just again we're trying to cover our bases here and be as professional as

00:59:05--> 00:59:07

possible and then know the feel of being an email well

00:59:09--> 00:59:20

I've explained to you is make sure you take some time and read and know how to lead and know what you're responsible for what's expected of you and how to do it properly because that's your that's the kind of the the conclusions of this what to expect expect you to do.

00:59:21--> 00:59:26

That's the end of my presentation. If you have any questions I'm happy to take them yeah. Oh yeah. What do you want to ask?

00:59:28--> 00:59:28

Does anyone have a question?

00:59:30--> 00:59:35

I think has asked most of your questions throughout the session but if anything specific that you didn't ask you're welcome to do so

00:59:41--> 00:59:46

let them fix you let them correct you let them correct your film because there's no there's no harm

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

in salah I

00:59:51--> 01:00:00

mean I'll completely never let you hear the end of it but it's okay. I will remind you of it like every time I see you because again you want to try and dissuade sorry yes for

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

Don't you try to fix those stuff so they can protect your reputation your icon and your digital ID and all that stuff. But no, I'm not going to hold you for anything because we've been during prayer sometimes if it's really bad it's really bad like if there's like a particular new like damage or something like it is very obvious I will kind of just for your own for your own sake to cover your own bases and they're gonna be people people come and say something again my job is to protect you make sure that you're supportive and what you do that no one hears you know, doesn't no one comes in on Thursday with anything later on so that's just kind of

01:00:31--> 01:00:35

my mission during this no i Angela's

01:00:36--> 01:00:50

make sure you work on your intention a little bit and think about that and make dua that Allah Allah grants you the the sincerity and the trophy and the facilitation if you're doing it well that also accepts it from you and from all of us it's important to kind of always ground yourself and go back to these basics

01:00:51--> 01:01:03

there's a lot of excellent Imam if you do it right well because you're getting the gist of the action and if your intention in the right place you're getting a job of serving the people behind you you're doing I'm trying to make your salon nice want you to enjoy this I want you to have a good experience

01:01:04--> 01:01:29

maybe it's a Yeah, I mean I don't know I don't know I guess for some people maybe if they find it really really difficult but most people enjoy it so I think it's it's a bit too easy but something to think about anything else that went with that and also we're gonna have Leila Hannah and this tofu but they also Allahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad Allah is like he's like Monica, thank you for coming and putting up with this thing through Inshallah, one day you will share this with others in the future as you train your
