Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim Allah Allah Allah He was hobby of mine, my brothers and sisters, welcome to rise in Ramadan program session number two, reflection on selective supplications or do ours in Islam.
Before we actually dwell into each supplication every single day, it is important for us to understand what is the law and the beauty of the power of dogs are the virtues of law. If we just have a quick background of what importance does it carry in our Deen in our Islam, then it becomes a lot more easier when we actually reflect on particular do I right? So do our to understand my brothers and sisters in Islam is one of the most beautiful and profound aspects of worship. It is a direct channel to communicate personally with your Creator who is ever ready to respond. A lot of mighty says in the Quran. When my servants ask you about me tell them I am quite near. I hear an
answer the call of the caller when ever he calls me the beauty of da my brothers and sisters. It is mentioned in Hadith l could see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that a loss of Hannah who attire Allah He stated, I am near to the thought of my servant, as he thinks about me, I am with him as he remembers me. And if he remembers me in his heart, I also remember in a similar fashion, and if he remembers me in assembly, I remember him in assembly, better than his remembrance, and if he draws near me by a span of palm I draw near but you know, near him by the qubit, if he draws near, to me, by the qubit, I draw near him by the space covered by two hands. And
if he walks towards me, I rush towards him, this is our brother, a lot of blazer, who listens who accepts our do ours insha Allah, Allah to Allah, the best times to make dua is also important for us to know so that we can make use of those selective situations and, you know, hours, for example, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned some of the some of these times, you know, as follows number one, the last third part of the night, that is the moment where a lot of Bonanza he descends, as it suits to His Majesty, and gives an open call to all of us to to invoke him and ask anything, that's the moment that we should not miss number two an hour on Friday, this is also a
beautiful and a very powerful hour of the duel in its effective sense, right number three, the night of other that is again a night in which a lot of blur is he made this night a night better than 1000 months. So that is again a beautiful you know moment to pray to make dua number for the dua for Muslim for his Muslim brother or sister. So when you supplicate for someone a lot of Berryessa he gives you that and he gives you know you better than that in fact right number five da during the month of very month of Ramadan Subhana Allah This is the month of June that is the reason that is the purpose why we have actually selected certain selective you know supplications and inshallah we
will reflect upon those doors to begin that the first and the foremost do are that we have to make my brothers and sisters and we make actually in every Salah in every regard. We say he Dino sirajul Mr. Team, have you ever wondered the power of this? Do
you know the whole Islam can be summed up in this if you are, you know, clear and if you reflect on this particular da is the Nosferatu muster team and you really work towards it, then your mission on the face of the earth will be done right
So what does it mean? Many of you perhaps know the meaning of it, it means guide us upon the straight path. That's the translation. Now, the reflection comes like this, after confessing his obedience and servitude to Allah subhana wa tada reaching the stage of worship, and asking for help from him, he can do it, I can say the first thing that the servant seeks is his guidance to the straight path, the path of righteous the path of justice, the path of faith and good deeds. Right. That is the that is the beautiful Diwan that we have to ask. And we have to reflect on every single time when you say, a dino Serato. Mr. Team, what do you actually intend? What do you want to focus
on? guidance hedaya meaning it comes basically in a way that it lead or direct us to the straight path of Islam. And it's not the intended meaning in Surah Al Fatah since the people reciting Surah Al Fatah have already been guided to it right. So, when we are already Muslim and when we are, you know, trying to walk on the street, but why do we actually commanded to say it again and again. Now, there is a perspective in that and because you know, we have already accepted you know, the, the guidance. So,
we are asking Allah subhanahu dialler when we say he, Dino Serato, Mr. Team, three things. Number one, we say when we read out in a certain Mr. Team, guide us to words Islam, number one, number two, allow us to accept Islam, number three, keep us firm upon Islam after we have accepted it. So this
the meaning of hedaya with these three, you know, pointers gives us a holistic approach or a meaning of a dinner serrata Mr. Payne, we actually say Guide us to the straight path that is land that is by giving us knowledge of Deen, you know, the second thing guide is to the straight path by allowing us to accept the new things we learn from our Deen so that the more we learn, the more we become firm. Number three Guide us to the straight path by granting us this stability. You know when we actually learn we get stable. When we get stable. We are more closer to Allah Subhana huhtala. This is how we actually should look whenever we say Dino Serato Mr. team, and this is the way that we should seek
Allah subhanho wa Taala because remember, my brothers and sisters, fitna will come and people will go to be to bad Muslims and go out in the morning as disbeliever Subhana Allah you know in the morning you are a believer and in the evening your disbeliever people will go out in the morning as Muslims and be disbelievers by night nightfall. So we are not safe. In fact, the people who feel safe and do not think that they can stay after being guided are often led astray in the most hideous of ways since they since they let their guard down. Right? All of this is part of worship Allah subhanho wa Taala helped us with this beautiful drop in a certain theme so my brothers and sisters,
it is extremely important to keep in mind for us to reflect over the meanings of this beautiful and simple. A dinner Serato Mr. Team, as we recite it so many times in, in our Salah, may Allah subhanaw taala grant us all steadfastness upon his magnificent Deen and Islam was Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
