Before we start inshallah just simple house rules. Insha Allah, I know most of you that are regulars, they know the house rules. But those of you that are new here, may Allah Subhana Allah bless you. There's like Allah here for coming. If you came with your kids, even if they're 25 years old, please make sure they're next to you.

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

And if they're not next to you, we'll get them they're probably outside.

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

If you brought your children along, which we highly recommend, just make sure that they're not running around and stuff. We want everybody to actually enjoy the night. We want the kids to enjoy night. Trust me, there's like some fun machine for the kids that can all come in and you know sing MO You know, all of the things they know. Paula Alba

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

through talking about all the kids nasheeds in sha Allah, so we'll do that. But for this to happen, we have to make sure that at least the sisters section and the brothers section were extremely quiet and respectful inshallah while we're doing this as a basic decorum for everyone, okay, that night is going to be very easy and then if I can ask the brothers over here the brothers on this side if you can scoot over this way so that the sisters want to move up because they get really crowded at the back. So the brothers if you can move this way

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

past that Xhaka locker

00:20:34--> 00:20:47

and the sisters if it's perfect, and if the sisters can move up because as other sisters come in, it gets crowded at the back. Same thing for the brothers if you can move up as a as brothers start trickling in, it gets crowded at the back, inshallah.

00:20:48--> 00:20:51

So, tonight, inshallah we're going to do

00:20:52--> 00:20:53

00:20:54--> 00:20:55


00:20:57--> 00:20:57

00:21:01--> 00:21:03

I just want to make sure that we are

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

okay on the stream

00:21:12--> 00:21:25

Okay, bye Smilla Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Hubert rubbish rally Saturday us Sydney Emery. Well, hello looked at Emily Sani of the holy Robina Zina alemannia Karim.

00:21:27--> 00:21:31

I think you guys can hear me on the other mic. No need for two mics.

00:21:39--> 00:21:54

So alhamdulillah in this masjid, we've been doing this era of Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at various different angles. And we have been doing it from an angle of Shamaya we've been doing it from an angle of

00:21:55--> 00:22:15

where we have discussed Nabi SallAllahu Sallam has various aspects of his life. We have discussed for example, in today's hotbar one of the aspects of recognizing Rasul Allah, Allah Azza wa sallam from evidentiary grounds. How do you get to truly know that Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was truly an ABI.

00:22:17--> 00:22:19

And as I was preparing this lecture,

00:22:21--> 00:22:37

and we live in a very fast paced world where we want an instant 15 Second real and we just flip, another flip and another flip, and I want like a quick dose to imagine, and you know that that quick dopamine hit that we are so accustomed to,

00:22:38--> 00:22:40

every single one of us wants a quick fix.

00:22:41--> 00:22:45

And for me, I wanted to see if there's a way for us

00:22:47--> 00:22:58

to summarize, the entire Syrah of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Okay, his entire life, is there a way for us to be able to summarize

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

all of that

00:23:02--> 00:23:02

in a lecture?

00:23:04--> 00:23:17

Is there a way that we can summarize his life in maybe a five minute reel or a 32nd reel? Or is there a way even better, can we look at every incident

00:23:21--> 00:23:30

during the life of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and can we did you sit down to one or two words

00:23:32--> 00:23:33

I eat this word

00:23:34--> 00:23:38

or this concept, it was present

00:23:39--> 00:23:52

in every event of Prophet sallallahu Sallam his life, he displayed that characteristic, that trait that Hello, irrespective of

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

whether it was a victory, or whether it was a lesson learned, right? Some people say it's a loss Rasul Allah does not have losses, right? It's because of the sahaba. And their mistakes is not because of prophets of salaam that there was a loss. They didn't listen to him or hurt. So was there a lesson learned for the sahaba? And how did he respond when a calamity was falling on him? When something was struck when he lost his his son? How did he respond and which

00:24:25--> 00:24:28

trait remained with him

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


00:24:32--> 00:24:32


00:24:33--> 00:24:44

the more you study the life of seal, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you come to this realization very, very quickly, that there are two words.

00:24:46--> 00:24:52

There are two words that describe his entire life.

00:24:54--> 00:24:56

And whosoever tells me

00:24:57--> 00:24:58

these two words

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

Hey, if you've heard this lecture before, please, you're not you're disqualified.

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

I don't think I've given this lecture before anyways, but so, but in case if you heard this lecture somehow, you know, in, you know, you came in my dream and you heard me, then in that case, I don't know who was in my dream, right? Maybe uncle Wassef, possibly, right? He was reading what I was thinking. So if you've heard this, you're disqualified. But if you tell me two words

00:25:27--> 00:25:31

that we can use their individual words, they're not connected.

00:25:32--> 00:25:45

So not Rahmatullah mean? That's like three words anyways. Right? So tell me two words that would summarize the life of Prophet Salah Salem. And we're Shaquille right?

00:25:46--> 00:25:48

Outside, he's gonna give you $50

00:25:51--> 00:25:56

It will check in right from his pocket, he'd check in right you're giving $50 Whoever answers this question.

00:25:59--> 00:26:06

He's like, yes. It's so easy to take our money from him. hamdulillah All right.

00:26:08--> 00:26:08


00:26:10--> 00:26:15

Ghana Whoa, loco, hello, Boo Al Quran bottle.

00:26:17--> 00:26:19

filled. Somebody says,

00:26:20--> 00:26:20


00:26:24--> 00:26:27

Allahu Akbar. That's one word. You have to give me the second.

00:26:29--> 00:26:30

That's one word.

00:26:32--> 00:26:37

I'm close. Abdo. Allah is one word. We'll get to the second one.

00:26:39--> 00:26:55

Every single event that you go back and study about Prophet sallallahu sallam, one thing is going to be absolutely clear, without a shadow of a doubt. That Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recognizes that he is abd

00:26:56--> 00:27:01

he is a servant. And a slave to Allah.

00:27:02--> 00:27:03

He doesn't control.

00:27:04--> 00:27:09

He doesn't have control. He's not hurting. He's not free.

00:27:10--> 00:27:11

I want freedom.

00:27:12--> 00:27:17

No, you are a slave of Allah. Whether you recognize that slavery or you don't.

00:27:18--> 00:27:31

But us all allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we all know the Battle of all heard what happened? Battle of have heard how long did it last battle over it by the way. Let's see. It's a trivia quiz for you guys, too. How long did battle overheard last?

00:27:32--> 00:27:34

Two days? Three days? Five days?

00:27:37--> 00:27:45

The one with pink? going like this? Yeah. I mean, it's just make a guess. 20 days? Yes. At the back

00:27:46--> 00:27:49

70 days. Seven days no.

00:27:52--> 00:27:53

Less than one day.

00:27:54--> 00:28:12

Battle of oho took place less than one day. How many hours? Now? You know the answer. Tell me how many hours Yes. Six, six hours. Six hours. Battle overheard only lasted for six hours. The net loss to Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was what?

00:28:13--> 00:28:21

Within six hours he lost 70 of his dear precious Sahaba that he spent 13 years developing them in Makkah.

00:28:23--> 00:28:30

Majority of them from that that group. Then within six hours he loses his uncle Hamza.

00:28:33--> 00:28:55

The stomach of Hamza is split open, the heart is taken out. His ears are cut off his nose is cut off within six hours. Within six hours. His mill follow his helmet. The watch the pointy part of the helmet goes into the head of Rasulullah he breaks his robot and he breaks his teeth.

00:28:57--> 00:29:04

Abu Bakr Radi Allahu uncom strives to take the metal piece out of the skull that was stuck and he broke his tooth.

00:29:05--> 00:29:15

All of the Sahabas and at that moment, we had Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was striving for La Ilaha illa Allah or renew Hubel was said

00:29:17--> 00:29:30

the NARA or you know the slogan of that day was the Quraysh were like orlo Hubel that Hubel was victorious and it was great all the herbal, herbal was great and victorious. That was the slogan.

00:29:32--> 00:29:37

Imagine the state that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be in

00:29:38--> 00:29:41

imagine what is going through him at this hour, six hours.

00:29:42--> 00:29:48

Everything turned from a victory absolute victory with one disobedience to prophets Allah Laude center

00:29:50--> 00:29:53

with one disobedience to prophets, I send them for dunya

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

and all of this, and look at what Prophets Allah Allah when you send him say

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

And when he sees all the bodies of the 70 Sahabas in front of him, including his uncle Hamza.

00:30:09--> 00:30:10

He said,

00:30:12--> 00:30:13

All of you,

00:30:14--> 00:30:19

his stone was stuffy mu was Sephora.

00:30:20--> 00:30:24

Make straight lines, and all of you stand behind me.

00:30:26--> 00:30:29

Why? Oh prophet of Allah, why would you want to do that?

00:30:30--> 00:30:32

He said, he says,

00:30:33--> 00:30:38

because I want to praise Allah, for what He has given us.

00:30:39--> 00:31:03

I want you as a prophet of Allah, how won't you want to praise Allah 60 of your Sahaba 70 of your Sahabas or daddy or uncle is dead, so much losses life you have lost technically on the battlefield. It seems like you have lost the battle. All of this you have done and you want to nothing but praise Allah. Yes. Because this is what my Rob decided to give me.

00:31:05--> 00:31:08

This is the hand that was dealt to me and I

00:31:09--> 00:31:10

am a servant.

00:31:12--> 00:31:23

And a servant. I'm a slave. I don't have a choice. This is what my master dealt me I have to be praised. I have to praise Him. Many times you will be delta card and you don't want that card.

00:31:24--> 00:31:28

You don't want you don't like that card you don't like why me?

00:31:30--> 00:31:31

Why me?

00:31:32--> 00:31:38

You because you are a slave of Allah. And he chooses. If Allah Maya Shah

00:31:39--> 00:31:52

and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his entire life was an expression of that. This is at the moment when there was some losses. Let's see you Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the moment of victory.

00:31:54--> 00:31:57

But also allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam enters

00:31:58--> 00:32:06

the father of Abu Hanifa the father of Abu Bakr Abu Hanifa. He is on top of the mountain with the sister of Abu Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han.

00:32:07--> 00:32:17

And she says, Yeah, are the all my father in the Aurora squad, I see a black moving cloud on the desert.

00:32:19--> 00:32:26

To Abu Hanifa he was blind at that time, the father of a walker he said ha Jaysh This is an army.

00:32:28--> 00:33:17

Then she says Ara Enel Jane's the hummus, the Jaysh. This army, this cloud split into five factions, you want to understand this. So the Sahaba is they protected Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than their lives. So what that means of Jaysh basically means that there are five squares, square in the front, square at the back, two squares on the side, front, back side, and then you have the primary square that you're trying to guard in the middle. And you walk like that. So if the attack comes from any angle, every angle can form a front and a back. every angle, you turn, you have a front and a back and the middle is protected. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is

00:33:17--> 00:33:18

right in the center.

00:33:20--> 00:33:31

So she sees that the homies of Jaysh and what does she say? Abu Bakar Father, what does he say? He says, Let's go they'll help cultivate let's go we're about to get captured

00:33:32--> 00:33:34

at that moment.

00:33:36--> 00:33:52

Some of the Kure she's we're gonna she's but not Muslim at that time. They recorded this for us. I will Sofian they recorded for us Radi Allahu Allah and what did he say? He says I saw Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entering

00:33:53--> 00:33:55

and literally as he was entering

00:33:57--> 00:34:09

this was his camel. And you know on the camel when you're sitting on that, that you know that saddle for the camel, and then that saddle has this whole place that you can hold on to so you don't fall. Right.

00:34:11--> 00:34:47

He mentioned that I saw Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Salam wa who are fighting. He is entering as a victor of none other than the land that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved and Allah subhanaw taala loved he enters in that land and his state is that his top teeth were touching that handle from the tomato or the tea hand and he was all the way down and he was saying enough

00:34:49--> 00:34:53

Rubina Leo feel like that Allahumma

00:34:54--> 00:34:56

them big amount.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

And that was the state that he had.

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

And that impediment of I am nothing.

00:35:05--> 00:35:12

I am nothing. I have been given the greatest victory. I am nothing. I know.

00:35:14--> 00:35:16

I know, I am a slave of Allah.

00:35:18--> 00:35:26

All of the issues that we face today is we failed to recognize this quality.

00:35:27--> 00:35:35

You didn't come here by your choice. I didn't come here by my choice. If you think you all came to the masjid by your choice, you're heavily mistaken.

00:35:36--> 00:35:43

For verily you have so many of your friends that are not here. It was Allah subhanaw taala who decided

00:35:44--> 00:35:48

and made your heart easy for you to come and attend

00:35:49--> 00:35:50

and to listen.

00:35:51--> 00:36:01

So we show the servitude we saw this humility to Allah that Allah has allowed us to serve Him. Allah has allowed us to be in her in a house that belongs to him.

00:36:02--> 00:36:19

These massages l massage doula, they belong to Allah. They don't belong to anybody. They don't belong to the Imam, they don't belong to the board. They don't belong to the community. And if we are not thankful to Allah, Allah says, Allah can bring another nation. Well let me Hakuna I'm tired of them and they're not going to be like you.

00:36:20--> 00:36:26

So this ability of ours to understand that Allah that Rasul Allah was

00:36:27--> 00:36:39

ambitious al haffi. He was having a party in his house, literally a party singing and everything you could hear the sound of girls, and a person silent person comes and knocks at the door. And he says,

00:36:41--> 00:36:43

is the master of this house?

00:36:45--> 00:36:54

slave or free? So the woman that opened the door, she says, NAMA who are visionary, homegrown vision is a free man.

00:36:56--> 00:37:03

He said, Yeah, truly, he's a free man. Because if he was a slave, he would not have disobeyed the master.

00:37:04--> 00:37:27

As this person leaves, visual haffi runs behind, and he's called Al haffi. Why? Because he ran behind without shoes. barefoot, he ran behind looking for this pious person. He said, Dr. Bob, you knocked the door. What did you say? He said, Yes. And to hold on and I've done. Are you free? Or are you a slave?

00:37:29--> 00:37:29

He says,

00:37:31--> 00:38:16

He said, Yes, you're heard. That's why you are disobeying your Lord. If you are a slave, ma say to Allah, you would have not disobeyed Allah. And at that point, when Bishop he heard that, he fell to the ground and he said, Yeah, but I know. I know. I know. And from there, the transformation of vishawn haffi happened and he became a pious person, this recognition of ours, that if you and I are in the masjid, not because I'm a good practicing Muslim hamdulillah and I have, you know, a good flow in my hashtagging on Instagram and I know all the trendy hash for good and practicing Muslims. It's because Allah has allowed you

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

to be here.

00:38:19--> 00:38:31

And if we are not respectful and humble ourselves towards this quality, that we are able to we are servants and slaves of Allah at the end of the day. Nothing else.

00:38:33--> 00:38:35

That's first word. What's the second word?

00:38:36--> 00:38:36


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


00:38:41--> 00:38:42

You got to speak louder.

00:38:44--> 00:38:48

Okay, no, that's not the word. Second word that describes Rasul Allah.

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

I just said the word

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


00:38:59--> 00:39:01

He is the Rasul he is the messenger.

00:39:02--> 00:39:21

He is the messenger of Allah I II in every element of his life, every story you're going to pick up, you're going to find his expression of being an app, and his expression of being Rasulullah sallallahu. It was his expression of being the Messenger of Allah.

00:39:22--> 00:39:24

And what is the purpose of a messenger?

00:39:25--> 00:39:29

A messenger is sent down for one purpose.

00:39:31--> 00:39:43

That when we are misguided, they come to us and they give us hedaya Or II, they give us a book and all the means for you and I to attain hedaya.

00:39:44--> 00:39:57

Through the message and the miracles, they come and tell us, this is the message. This is the miracle believe, if you believe that's amazing. If you don't, it's on you.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

Now, if you focus

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

On the message, how do you know

00:40:05--> 00:40:15

in the rissalah in the messenger, the entire life of Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam hide, you know, what was an important thing for him in a simplest format?

00:40:16--> 00:40:27

How would you recognize that what was very important for prophets SLM? I mean, he had so many commands he gave, he gave a command for this in the command for this and the command for this and a command for this. But how do you come to this realization?

00:40:28--> 00:40:35

What was priority number one, priority number two, priority number three, how can we find that out?

00:40:40--> 00:40:53

How would you study how would you recognize that? Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a messenger? How do we know what was the thing that was important for his life? How do we know that?

00:40:55--> 00:40:57

What was the focus like he wanted to focus on that

00:41:00--> 00:41:08

Masha, Allah that gang is back together mashallah your your rules all of your rules must have met in in Jana and party together.

00:41:09--> 00:41:20

I know that's what I'm saying. You come in everybody comes in he comes in everybody comes so you must have connected in Jana. Somewhere partying so very hard. Okay, I need you guys to get separated please.

00:41:21--> 00:41:24

I don't want distraction. So I need all of you to get up.

00:41:25--> 00:41:29

Hudson, get up. Get up get up. Musa Get up. Let's go.

00:41:31--> 00:41:33

Go somewhere. You have an entire home.

00:41:36--> 00:41:44

But not together. Now coming back? How do you know that Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam had an important message for us? What will tell us?

00:41:45--> 00:41:50

Well, Al Hamdulillah we live in a day and age where you have technology.

00:41:51--> 00:41:55

You can search all the nine books of Hadith in less than 30 seconds.

00:41:56--> 00:42:18

You can put a word oh lets me talk about the concept of said look. Let me see the word said. And how many times in the nine Hadith books does the word said show up from the statements of Prophet sallallahu Sallam then you will know that oh it shows up 680 times. Wow, this must be really something important for prophets of Salem. What's the one thing

00:42:19--> 00:42:29

that came the most in every like if you do a nine Hadith Book Search, there's one word that showed up the most.

00:42:31--> 00:42:37

Hint Hint, that word was also the word during his last few days

00:42:41--> 00:42:44

somebody said it. Salah prayer

00:42:47--> 00:43:24

a Salah Uppsala a Salah right before Prophet Salla sallam said what era fitel Allah that I'm choosing the highest companion right before that sal Allahu Allah you Salem before that he said what? A flood, a flood, a flood ah. prayer, prayer prayer. If you do a search of the nine Hadith books, the word Salah and its root word Solu, Salih salah. All of these different derivatives of that comes 66,900 60,900 times.

00:43:26--> 00:43:30

The only other word that comes more than that is the word Allah.

00:43:32--> 00:43:38

The only other word that is IE first the dough hate. And then it's Allah,

00:43:39--> 00:43:48

our iman and our faith in Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, his message is not complete, without emphasis on salah.

00:43:50--> 00:44:13

And honestly, we all take an account for ourselves, including myself, every single one of us deep down inside knows we could do better in our silos. True or False? We all know that right? Like man, like this, there's room for improvement. Right? Nobody's ever gonna say no, no, no, I'm the law. I got it man. Like, you know, I'm gonna get the award for the best football person in Atlanta.

00:44:14--> 00:44:32

know, we all know inside, quote Asika in there somewhere there is some gap and it's a fillable gap. Ie you have the tools to fill the gap. I have the tools to fill the gap

00:44:36--> 00:44:37

but it's not the priority.

00:44:39--> 00:44:51

And four Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam before leaving this world his only concern for you and you and all of us was salah, Salah, Salah.

00:44:53--> 00:44:57

Take care of Salah take care of Salah take care of Salah.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

So the question that you and I need to

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

Ask Us, where are you and I would our salons.

00:45:04--> 00:45:23

We all come to the masjid those that come to the masjid Masha, Allah Allah, it's amazing. How good is your Salah. When was the last time you had an upgrade in your Salah? When was the last time you said okay I'm going to read Subhan Allah Bill Alvin and I'm also going to add some bullets to those rubble murder equity rows. I'm going to add something extra.

00:45:25--> 00:45:37

There are recorded in authentic narrations more than 3000 Sooners only in Salah that we can all work on.

00:45:39--> 00:45:52

We can start with the smallest and work ourselves to heart because remember Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he left us with something which is called an MP L.

00:45:54--> 00:45:54

What's an NPM?

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


00:45:58--> 00:46:04

No emefiele Is not that MPL means minimum performance level.

00:46:06--> 00:46:14

So all the Asgard that you know and I know that have been codified in our formada hips. They are like entry level.

00:46:15--> 00:46:18

Like, this is what an average person should get to.

00:46:19--> 00:46:22

We should all aim to get to that minimum performance level.

00:46:24--> 00:46:26

But that's just a start. It's not the finish line.

00:46:28--> 00:46:29

For many of us, that's our finish line.

00:46:31--> 00:46:35

Whatever I memorized with my body sob when I was a small kid is what I remember.

00:46:37--> 00:46:41

So how are we going to increase and make our Salas better?

00:46:42--> 00:46:49

Because that was the concern of My Habib and you're heavy for us. A Salah Asana, Asana,

00:46:50--> 00:46:53

once a person was coming, he came and he was like,

00:46:55--> 00:47:03

finish you know, those DSL philos right? High speed salons, right? I prefer that you know, people in the day I wish we have dialogues allows you not to

00:47:06--> 00:47:06

remember that.

00:47:10--> 00:47:22

That sound? I mean those slides you know you sometimes I don't know if anybody remembers Netscape who remembers Netscape? Oh, yeah, Netscape generation. Show of hands. If you'd remember Netscape? You don't remember Netscape?

00:47:23--> 00:47:25

10 years your parents deprived you?

00:47:27--> 00:47:46

From the sisters. anybody remembers Netscape? You remember Netscape? It remember that it had that that wheel north, south east west, and it had like a captain's and you would sometimes load a website and you would turn it on at night. And you would click on Load, and you will go to sleep?

00:47:48--> 00:47:53

And, yes, you've got and then you would wake up in the morning and the website is loaded?

00:47:54--> 00:48:10

Like the community, yes, it's loaded Hamdulillah you would download things at 50 kilobytes per second. And you would calculate on those torrents that you would download on, you know, software's that were available. What was it was a Napster.

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

But it was all like, you have to wait the entire day for that song to get downloaded.

00:48:17--> 00:48:21

Right. But the good part was we got free time to do things.

00:48:22--> 00:48:28

Now with the access of such fast internet, we have no time left for our a bother.

00:48:30--> 00:48:35

Because we're instantly pick up uncle Google shares Google.

00:48:36--> 00:48:47

Right, mostly Microsoft, all of these people are, you know, you know, Shehar Cortana. All these for all those people who are Microsoft fans, including brothers Suraj.

00:48:49--> 00:48:52

Microsoft fans, you know, we want to emphasize brother Suraj

00:48:53--> 00:48:55

Google's better any day. But anyhow,

00:48:56--> 00:49:06

coming back, if you really think about it, our salons require a revamp. And it's a true conversation that every single one of us needs to have with ourselves.

00:49:07--> 00:49:29

Go back home today. We're all gathered over here in the month of February Oh Well, too late learn from his life. And his life is summarized in two words. And we say this whenever somebody becomes a Muslim, a shadow Allah Ilaha illa Allah or a shadow anna muhammadan Abdullah, who wanna sue

00:49:30--> 00:49:44

these two things and you must have needs to understand. And these are the things that you and I need to understand that our entire journey is between recognizing my incapacity of decision making,

00:49:45--> 00:49:59

versus my full ability to following none other than Nabina Muhammad Sallallahu said no, we have no Deen without Muhammad Sallallahu we have no religion. You have no Salah whose Salah Are you praying

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

Nabina Muhammad Salah that you pray, he is the one who told you how to pray.

00:50:05--> 00:50:34

You can't eliminate the Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam from the equation. You can't say you know what? I will just figure it out from a hadith. No, it can't happen. We need people to explain that to us. And this is the primary focus for all of us if we can fix our Salas until Ramadan, and focus on understanding Fatiha, what it means. What does it mean when we say adhere to the law? What does it mean? What is

00:50:36--> 00:50:44

What are you asking Allah? What are you confining to Allah? Something to Lila? What belongs to Allah? What is this?

00:50:46--> 00:50:48

What is what Salawat

00:50:49--> 00:50:51

why a salam alayka

00:50:52--> 00:51:04

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not alive right now with us. He's alive in the grave which is the Athena of Allah cinoa GEMA. But in the Salah, what do we say A salaam wa la?

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


00:51:07--> 00:51:10

you use the word guy when somebody is mohatta When I see you in front?

00:51:12--> 00:51:22

Do we ever think about that? Do we ever feel that when we're saying a salam alayka Johann Nabhi that we are talking to Prophet sallallahu sallam, we are talking to Allah.

00:51:24--> 00:52:00

And if we don't feel that, then I think it's high time that we focus our lives back to what is important, which is Salah, because there is no spirituality without a perfect salah. I remember in the past if you read the books, any new chef would come the first thing they would do is what nobody would learn from him and the town nowadays martial law old issue have like bios and stuff and you can look them up on Instagram. Oh, that's what he does. And that's where he works and stuff. People didn't have that information back then they didn't have access to who you are. You look like a good person.

00:52:01--> 00:52:09

But that's about it. So what was the evaluation criteria? They would observe him does he show up to Fudger

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

does he show up to Orisha

00:52:13--> 00:52:22

does he pray Salawat in the masjid and when they would see more of lava I II this person is there 30 days consistent.

00:52:24--> 00:52:26

Then they would say okay, this person has fixed

00:52:27--> 00:52:37

the most important thing, thing that is there to fix in his life, which is his connection with Allah. Hence he is worthy of us actually taking some knowledge from him.

00:52:39--> 00:52:43

It's very sad today you you know and I get to travel in conferences and stuff like that.

00:52:45--> 00:53:01

And subhanAllah many times you feel that like Salah is like the conference is focused on everything. But like Salah is like the last thing in the small corner somewhere someplace. And yeah, do your Jamar do colors you can do yours, you can do yours, it's all good. Hamdulillah

00:53:03--> 00:53:07

I mean, the purpose of us gathering if we cannot gather to pray for Allah,

00:53:08--> 00:53:10

then how are we going to praise Allah.

00:53:11--> 00:53:23

It's Salah, the shortest path to your spirituality. Shortest and fastest way to build connection with Allah is Salah. And to understand what we read in our sauce

00:53:24--> 00:53:34

in Allah subhanaw taala grant us the true ability to truly connect with ourselves deep down inside and hopefully gives me that ofI to teach a course on salah.

00:53:36--> 00:53:44

It's been brewing in my head, and maybe you guys will be the test run and then we can live you know, hopefully pass this on.

00:53:45--> 00:54:05

Beta testers? No, I think alpha or you know, beta testers are people from Microsoft and stuff like that. Yeah. So anyhow. All right, the next part of the the event tonight, we're gonna delay the Salah by 20 minutes. In sha Allah, Allah is nine, we're going to pray at 920. So we have exactly,

00:54:06--> 00:54:15

let's say, 928. Please don't hold me on that. I added three more minutes uncle. So it's okay, three more minutes. So it's good.

00:54:16--> 00:54:18

Even if it's not, it's happening. So

00:54:20--> 00:54:24

it's happening Hamdulillah that you know, and your Dunda is not next to us. It's fine.

00:54:25--> 00:54:39

It's close by. So now we have prepared some young people to come and they're going to sing the sheets. These are very common new sheets. Most of you are aware of these new sheets. Before I preface that I want to actually preface few things about that.

00:54:41--> 00:54:42

This is a last tradition.

00:54:44--> 00:54:48

Poetry is the last tradition in our communities.

00:54:49--> 00:54:55

With without poetry, logic and grammar, there is no progress.

00:54:57--> 00:55:00

These are the three things intellectually

00:55:00--> 00:55:20

We need to grow as human beings. There is a reason why every single in every single knowledge, the shoe, they would write the book, and then they would somebody would come and they would summarize the entire book in a poetry and people would memorize this.

00:55:21--> 00:55:35

So for example, the poetry's are related to touch with rules, right? Or baton gum or noni a circle in it what the knowing any noni in soccer and that was the hero popular roofing how to finesse it.

00:55:36--> 00:55:38

That's how I've memorized my tooth roots.

00:55:39--> 00:56:10

Right? Hamza on a non on Donna. But everywhere you go in the world, rules were taught to us through poetry, the life of Rasulullah every kid had memorized poetry is about his life. You have a skeleton in your head and you know the poetry you know, this is what Rasul Allah is life is, you know, the rules of Tajweed you know, the rules of Salah, my Sheikh Abu al Anwar Alfred very, he has written

00:56:11--> 00:56:53

three major works of poetry. One of them he took the shaft effect, and he summarized the entire shaft for every 15,000 lines of poetry. If you memorize those 48 pages, 1000 small lines of poetry, you will know the entire framework of shaft effect, you will know every muscle that you need to know and everything that you need to understand to be able to understand the shaft effect. Then he got bored and he said, Okay, let me actually go and study the Humbert effect and he mastered the humbling effect. And he wrote 1000 lines poetry on the humbly film, then he's like, well, people are getting really confused about Hawaiian PA. So he wrote another treaties on that.

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

So this is when a tradition sadly in our world, it's lost

00:57:00--> 00:57:45

during the time of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and even past his time, it was a non tradition at the time of Imam Malik in Masjid the number week, that the entire month of robiola Well, obviously, as we said they did not they would not celebrate Molad at the time of Imam Malik, but they would never ever shy away from praising rasool Allah Azza wa sallam in the poetry's every kid had memorized stuff. So this is a tradition that sadly, is lost. Inshallah, I'm trying to get a che to come over here, who has actually written a 20 minute song in English. If our children memorize this 20 minute song, it is called the Sierra song. It's available on YouTube, you can look it up the

00:57:45--> 00:58:20

Sierra Song, written by Sheikh Abdullah Misra. And I've been talking to him to come and teach this to our kids and make them memorize the song in English. Then the rest of you all as parents, you never have to worry about your child or your son or your daughter ever knowing basics of Rasulullah his life, there will be up in the song for him memorized like a song. So today, what we have is we have collected some of that tradition that has been passed down to us through generations. Some of these machines have been around for over 900 to 1000 years.

00:58:21--> 00:58:27

And some of them are new. You will you can tell the ones that are geared towards kids in sha Allah, our ha

00:58:30--> 00:58:36

and the person who's going to be leading us is none other than our Cerruti chef over here. The chef of Munch heads

00:58:37--> 00:58:41

up the Marcin Mohsen who still hasn't made the Monday pit for us yet.

00:58:42--> 00:58:46

But inshallah inshallah we'll we'll get you you know, maybe this is my way of like,

00:58:48--> 00:59:10

getting you going inshallah so if some of the kids when we are doing the machine if you know the new sheet then I would want you to come in the front from the kids to if you know the new sheet right when he's reading the new sheet and you're like Oh, I know this machine, then you can come up otherwise we are going to have couple of kids that are sitting up there they will be singing along you want to take it away insha Allah

00:59:12--> 00:59:13
