Welcome to our program, Islam insight, a very exciting and special series, especially dedicated for new Muslim brothers and sisters, wherein we are dealing with some of the most important and relevant questions that they get after accepting Islam. And in this session, inshallah, we shall deal the questions relevant to the second pillar of Islam and that is Salah.
We have three new Muslim Brothers here, one from India, from Romania and from Philippine
can we have the first question from you, brother Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah brothers, I want to ask, why does Allah subhanaw taala need our peers? Right, you have gone to the basics. Why does Allah need our prayer? You see, at the outset, we need to understand what Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran, in Surah, fateha surah number 35 ayah number 15. Allah subhanaw taala says, All men, all mankind, it is you who are in need of us who is in need of Allah Almighty, and Allah subhanho wa Taala, he is free from all needs, he is independent, and that is the essential quality of the Creator, that he is independent, he is eternal, he is absolute, the moment creator becomes
dependent, he no longer remains a creator, because the rest of the creation, the entire creation is dependent, is relying upon the greatest force, and that is the creator. So the fundamental quality of the Creator itself is that he is the one who is independent. So Allah subhanaw taala, he does not need our prayers. On the contrary, we need Allah subhanaw taala why, because we are weak, we need Allah subhanho wa Taala we need the the to make the prayer to Allah subhanaw taala Why? First and foremost, we need to understand from the worldly perspective, if you have any need, or if you have any disease, you will go to a specialist, you don't go to someone who is just a doctor, you will go
to a specialist for example, a person has a heart disease, he will go to a cardiologist, he will go to a specialist in that field, who is a master in that field. So that so that you will get a proper treatment makes sense. In the same way we know the specialist, the master of the entire creation, the owner, the controller is none except Allah Almighty. So we go back to him. In order to take and fulfill our needs from we go back to him in order to make sure that we get what we need from our Creator. So on the contrary, we need a las panatela Allah Almighty says in the Koran, if
the sea becomes the ink, if the sea, the entire sea that we know. It becomes the ink and all the trees on the face of the earth. It becomes the pen
and they start glorifying writing the glorification of Allah subhanaw taala saying Allahu Akbar are allies, the greatest allies the greatest it does not. It does not make a lot more greater allies great by himself and if all the creation
tops abandons to praise the last panel to Allah to glorify Allah subhanaw taala
they will not be able to glorify our last panel to Allah a bit because Allah is already glorified. He is an Allah meaning the Most High. He is when we say that the salla Allahu Akbar is already the greatest. So our prayers, regardless whether whether we do it, we don't do it. It doesn't make a las panatela more superior or inferior if you don't do.
The bottom line is we need Allah subhanaw taala because we need to live in this life. We have to get sustenance, we have to be under the grace of Allah subhanaw taala we have to rely upon the greatest force. And that is the last panel that I hope that answers your question.
