the chapter of encouraging one to have ashore in the prayer. So yesterday we finished with the previous chapters, one on the conditions of the prayer and the other one on the strong in the prayer. And today inshallah we begin with a new chapter which is the encouragement of having a crusher in the prayer.
Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the Quran that from the attributes and characteristics of the successful Muslim is that they have Kishore in the prayer Allah subhana wa tada says and sort of mean on butterflycircle Moon, Allah Vienna Humphrey Salatu him harsh Iran. Indeed they are successful, those believers, those who have crucial in the prep, what is crucial, for sure, is basically as if nobody Mahima hola Tyler said, The combination of a number of things, number one, humility and humbleness towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two that you submit to the will of Allah azza wa jal and number three, that that you fear Him, and that you're conscious of his
awareness of you subhana wa Taala. So with these three things you have, number one that you humble yourself in front of Allah. So you acknowledge when you stand in front of a large wizard in prayer, that you're standing in front of your Lord and your Creator, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the one who provides for you, the one who gives you life and death, the one who will hold you to account on your multi armor, the one who gives benefit and he gives Homme subhanho wa Taala you acknowledge this and that humbles you, and it makes you humiliate yourself in front of a large soldier. Number two that you submit to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala by following that which
he has obligated upon you, and staying away from that which he has prohibited for you. And so even though it may be difficult for you to come and pray in the masjid, may be difficult for you to wake up in the morning and pray fudger, especially during the winter, or especially during the summer, when fertile becomes very early use, don't do it. Because this is part of ashore. And number three, you have fear of a larger region. And you're conscious that he is constantly aware of you that he is all seeing and all hearing and all knowing subhanho wa Taala that he knows everything that you do. And when you gather those elements together, that is for sure in the prayer. So you pray as the
prophets on a long word, he will seldom said you offer that prayer as it as if it may be your final prayer. And so from beginning to end, you're conscious of a large soldier, you're aware that you're standing in front of Allah, that Allah is watching you and that is listening to you, and that he's aware of your intentions, what you're hiding in the depths of your heart and your chest alaric xojo is all aware of this. That's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that perhaps the person will pray, or a person when they pray, they only rewarded for that which they're conscious in, meaning they have assured in that part of and perhaps a person will pray, and they will only
receive a sixth of their prayer or a 10th of their prayer. Meaning that you only get rewarded by Allah azzawajal for what you're conscious in. So if you stand in prayer, and your mind is elsewhere, it's with your family and your job and your wife and your children. You don't get rewarded for that. Even though you fulfill that obligation. No one's going to see to repeat that Russia prayer or that mercury prayer, that federal prayer. But what the issue isn't just fulfilling that obligation, it is also getting the benefits of their prayer and the reward that a large surgeon has placed in the prayer. And that's why Rahim Allah tala.
Despite this being a book of faith, despite this being a book of fact, which as we said, normally revolves around issues of practicality, how to pray, conditions of prayer, the pillars and obligatory parts of the prayer, the do's and the don'ts of the prayer. He has given a whole chapter to this issue, and that is for sure in the prayer, and that's because of its importance. And the scholars have said that Osho is something which only not only falls
upon your heart, but it also folds upon your limbs. So for sure isn't just something which is in your heart. But once it is in your heart, it is manifested on your limbs as well. So when you pray, you pray in that way that your whole show dictates you don't. Don't rush the prayer. The prayer doesn't become a game to you. It's not a toy away you just play with it and you quickly rush the prayer, but rather the prayer that was short which is in your heart is translated and manifested on your limbs as well. So even 100 Rahim Allah tala, he brings a whole chapter on this issue on the issue of crucial in the prayer to show its importance and its need in the prayer.
Hadith number 191 and a symbol the Allahu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam apol is a demon Asha. Sorry Mr Sharif. Hadith number 189 wannabe hora de la Rocha. Na Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you sold the original moto Sera, la con la will not only Muslim Marina who and yada yada.
Well, Phil Bahati and our Asia and Nevada Pharaoh lulea who de Sala team on the third Shiva boo hooray rhodiola one who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbade a person from praying with their hands on their waist. And this is in an Buhari and Muslim and this wordings of Muslim. And what it means is that you place your hands on your waist during the prayer. And in the narration of Al Bukhari on the authority of Arusha are the en la Juana, the prophet, it was said that this is the action of the Jews in their prayer. This whole chapter will revolve around this issue of ashore, and what will detract from Yahushua. So what Allah will bring in these, a hadith is
those things which will help you to gain horseshoe, and then at the same time, those things which will detract from your control. So what you should do to increase in horschel, what you should stay away from by will detract from your control. The first thing is that a person just done as is in this hadith with their hands on the waist in the prayer mean that during the prayer, either in PM, or after they come up from record, they stand like this, with their hands upon their waist or upon their hips, right, or something like this, they stand in this manner. And so this is something which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam forbade bait, how is this related to his show? Or how does it
detract from your home? Sure, as we said, the scholars say that one of the greatest meanings of offshore is your humbleness in front of Allah, that you humiliate yourself in front of Allah. So when in the prayer, anything which detracts from the humiliation, and detracts from the humbleness that humility and humbleness, then that is something which detracts from your show. So therefore, it is either disliked or is forbidden. And so what the scholars say is when a person stands in this way, in such a manner, it is normally an arrogant type of stance, slowly when you're looking down upon someone that you stand in that way, or when you're turning someone off. Either you're boasting
or you're becoming arrogant, or you're turning someone off, you're showing that you're better than someone else, or that you have a higher position than someone else, you have more power than someone else. And so therefore, you use a certain stance you stand away, which shows that you have that that position and that power. In the prayer. It doesn't matter how rich a person is, how powerful they are, what their social standing may be, everyone is equal in that regard in the sight of Allah. And the only difference between one Muslim and another in the sight of Allah is the taqwa the amount of piety and fear they have within their hearts for a larger region. And so anything which detracts
from the humbleness and the humility, that is something which isn't allowed in the prayer. And this isn't just in the prayer, but even across all of the other acts of worship.
Everyone is equal in regards to worship, there are no special rules. For someone who is ultra ultra rich, or someone who's ultra powerful, or someone who's a leader or a king, everyone has to pay the same type of xhaka. Everyone has to pray the same prayers and in the same manner, everyone has to perform the same Hajj wearing the same garments in the same way. And that's why even in hajj, you may have people that are multi billionaires, you may have people that are kings and presidents and prime ministers. But when they come and have lunch, they still have to wear those two white robes don't have any special exemptions for the no special rules. Everyone is equal in this regard in
front of Allah. So likewise, in the prayer is not allowed for someone to stand in a way which is boastful. That may be that they have more money are more power than anyone else. And that's why the profits on the lower end he will sell them we'll also order the people in their prayer that they stand in a straight line to swear to so forth. Everyone stands
in a straight line. So it's not that if you're more powerful or you're more rich, you can stand in front of everyone else in your role to show that status that you have. You don't have to follow the rules that you have more status than others. So you can stand in front of someone who doesn't have as much status has to stand slightly behind the role. None of that you will find in the prayer, everyone is equal. The only person that has a special position in the prayer is the Imam, sone person, everyone else is equal. So anything which detracts from the accumulation and the humility for towards a large Xhosa It is something which is either disliked or is something which is
prohibited. And so in this hadith we see that this type of standing is prohibited because it detracts from the foreshore in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala the next Hadith 191 and assemble the last one, and that assault Allahu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam appall either put the menasha for that will be ecoblend to salute him. Upon early on the authority of Anasazi along were under the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If dinner is presented to you, then start with it before you pay the monthly prayer. And this is in Al Bukhari and Muslim.
This Hadith is in particular to the dinner, or that type of meal, the dinner and it's not also particular to Salatin Maverick, what it is, is an example, which establishes a principle. And that is something which also detract from kosher. kosher, as we said, is when you're conscious of a larger vision, so your attention in the prayer, it is towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. Therefore anything which severely negates that attention detracts from that attention in a severe way. It is something which then either it is prohibited to have in the prayer order is disliked. So in this Hadith, we have the example of the prophets on a lower legal setting them saying that if food is
presented to you, then you should eat it before the prayer. What this means is at the time of prayer has come in. So for example, the Muslim prayer is about to start. And you're extremely hungry, to the extent that if you were to pray, you'd be thinking about food. That would be your main preoccupation. You just be so preoccupied because of how hungry you are, with the meal that you're going to receive. It would detract from your short in the prayer. Therefore, the sooner says, and the Sharia says that you take and detract or somehow get rid of that issue, which will detract from your for sure. So therefore, you eat first. And then you come and pray. And there are other Hadith
in a similar regard to this as well, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam established the same principle. So the point being, there are a number of things to remember, number one, is that you have to be in a state, so hungry, if you were to pray in that state, you wouldn't be able to concentrate in the prayer. So this isn't just a general Hadith, even though the wording is general, is not just general, if for example, a person doesn't need to eat, they're not hungry. Or, for example, they don't feel that their hunger would detract from their short in the prayer, even though their dinner or their meal may be ready, then the prayer gets more precedence than the food, because
it doesn't detract from your social, because you're not hungry, you won't be preoccupied with the food, there is indifference to someone else who has eaten and will be hungry. And that will detract from the show. For them, it is better to eat, and then come and pray. And this example that is given is an example of the evening meal. Because normally, especially in the olden times, in the past, like generations and so on, people would work a long day, and they wouldn't have like a lunch break. And it wasn't like today we have breaks and then you have a lunch break and so on, people would work a very hard day manual labor, and they would come home towards muffling time, because that's when
the sunsets the end of the day, called work in the dark. So that come home and then be extremely hungry, extremely tired, and then they would be given food. So then they would have this issue arise. And that's why this example is specifically given of the evening meal, along with Serato. However, it is a general principle. So if someone and this urban shows that the Sharia looks at you for sure, you're short in the prayer is very important to this extent that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying that anything which detracts from your for sure, then experiment. And so if a person needs to eat, they're allowed to eat, do they eat the full meal? Or do they eat just
enough so that they fulfill their hunger and then they go and pray? The scholars have differed over this issue? Both opinions are mentioned by the scholars. And what seems to be the stronger opinion is it depends on the type of prayer. As we said before that mercury has a very limited time, Mercury was the shortest prayer in terms of its timings as opposed to the other prayers. So for mercury if a person just eats
enough so that they can go and pray in a comfortable manner. That's okay. And then they can come back and finish their meal. As opposed to, for example, the Asha prayer, which is extremely long. So even if a person was to delay that prayer, the timing is still there and then they can go and eat. And so for example, if a person like we do with fasting, person is fasting all day, the time for Muslim comes in, they break their fast, they eat their dates, they probably have a few starters. Then they go and pray, then they come back and have their meal. And so that so that you don't delay that mockery. Pray because timing is short. And alliances over generals best. The next Hadeeth 191
we're under visa in rhodiola one who Paula Paula Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is upon
us off to a Jew who are on Hamza Toby's net and so he was met with Hadith and Oda, Officer he and Maria
and authority of Abu Dhabi radi Allahu anhu said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if one of you is standing in the prayer, then do not wipe the dust, but rather it is the mercy of Allah which faces you and this is collected by the five with an authentic narration and in my maximum increases, wipe it once or leave it. And this is also mentioned in Al Bukhari, on the authority of
this howdy is authentic, except the statement in which it says that mercy will come and face you Mercy is coming upon you
that some of the scholars said that it is that statement, that part of the narration is weak, and the rest of it is authentic. What this hadith is speaking about is against something which detracts from your for sure. We said yesterday concerning movements and actions in the prayer for person was to move and perform actions which are not part of the prayer, we said that one of them is disliked. And that is when a person doesn't do something in excess. But that action is nevertheless not part of the prayer. There's no need to do it. And it's not part of the prayer. And so therefore, there is something which is disliked. And we gave the example of a person messing around with their clothes,
straining their clothes, straightening the jacket, or the coat straightening their glasses, straining their watch the constantly fidgeting and fiddling around with their clothing. And this handy is speaking about a similar issue. And the reason why these issues are disliked is because they detract from your culture. Instead of concentrating on the recitation of the Imam and your prayer, you're concentrating on your clothing, concentrating on your watch your glasses and so on your hat and so on. Rather, you should be concentrating on the prayer. In this Hadith, we have a similar issue, and that is that a person wipes dust from their forehead. Obviously, during that
time, the time of the prophet SAW Selim, there were no puppets, there were no rugs, there were no maps, people prayed on the ground, they preyed on the sun and the dust. And so when you go into sujood, you find that dust comes on your head, on your forehead, maybe on your nose, maybe on your hands, maybe on your knees. And even today, if you were to pray open in on the open grass, you pray on the road, you pray on the tarmac, you get dust on your hands and your face and so on those places, especially where you make sujood, those places that touch the ground in prostration, what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying is two things. Number one is that don't wipe off
that dust once you come up from surgery. So every time you sit up from surgery, you wipe off the dust from your hands on your face, you go back into pseudocode come up and you wipe it off again. And you keep doing this. Because this will preoccupy you, and it will detract from your control. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying, don't do this, don't do this. That's the first thing is prohibiting us from the second thing that the prophet or surname is prohibiting us from is from straightening out the ground. So if you were to pray on the in the sand, or on the on the on the ground, there may be pebbles. Or if you're praying on the sand, the sand may be uneven. They may
be rocks on the ground, they may be other things, which if you were to prostrate on them, they would be a nuisance to you. So the prophets on the lower end, he will send them in saying that during the prayer every time you go for surgery, don't keep straightening out the ground. Don't keep leveling out, moving away all of these things. Every time you go for surgery, you're trying to get rid of these nuisances to you, because that will also detract from your show. And what he's saying in the southern region is that if you must do so, then do it once before the prayer. So before you start praying, if you see that in front of you, there's something that has that's an impediment, something
that will be an obstacle or nuisance to you and then take care of the way before the prayer starts. But once it starts then don't do so. So these are the two meanings that are mentioned in this hadith and both of them detract from number one to fidget generally with your body, your face, your clothes.
So on. And number two the ground the place of prayer that you're praying on. And that can also be translated, for example, to a prayer mat. So normally when you're praying at home, you have a prayer mat. Sometimes when you go into children come up, that prayer mat moves, becomes crunched up, doesn't Street, it's not flattened out. And so you see people every time they waiting for us to do they have to straighten out that prayer mat, then they come up and it moves again, they go down, and they straighten it out again. And so they're constantly fidgeting with this prayer mat, that is also from the meanings of this hadith. So anything which detracts from the short because of the fidgeting
element, then there is something which is also disliked and something which a person should stay away from. How do you feel about 192 when Arusha todo de la hora and harlot CELTA Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and effective sala sakala whoa de la Samia associaton Salatu or ohare? Will you tell me the analysis also? Ha ha. eta multifactor Allah, Allah, Allah Buddha, Toto work on the authority a very short of the Allahu Allah who said that I asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about turning in the prayer. And he said rather that is something which the shape on snatches from the prayer of the servant, and this is collected in an Buhari and in sadhana Timothy
on the 30th episode, the last one, which he authenticated, he said, beware of turning in the prayer for indeed it is destruction. And if you must do so then do so in the optional prayer.
This second narration the spell is different over its authenticity. But it basically establishes the same principle as the one in Zion and Buhari and that is the Ashanti, Allah, one who was asking the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about turning in the prayer.
What we mean? The prayer is that you turn your head, right or left that you turn in the prayer not that you turn physically, your body. So you're not moving your body either to the right or to the left, but rather from the neck up, you're turning your head to the right and to the left. And so what the profits on a lower hourly or salary seem to Irish over the long run Hmm. In response to her question, that by doing so, shaytan will come and he will snatch from your prayer. He will snatch from your pray, meaning that it will take away from your reward, you will lose in your for sure. And there is another Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in which he said that when a
person prays, they're facing the Lord, and Allah faces them until they turn away. So when you end the prayer, you're turning towards Allah and Allah tends towards you until you turn away. The normally in the pray the way that you turn away is by giving the salams says salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah on the right. A salaam aleikum, wa rahmatullah on the left. So you turn away from Allah and you break that connection in the prayer, what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is seeing also during the prayer, so not only in the disheveled but during the prayer, do not turn right or left in the prayer. However, this howdy if there are other narrations that speak about turning in
the prayer, if there is a need to do so. So for example, if a person is praying at home, and they have a young child with them, and the child is behind them, and maybe there's a gas heater on, maybe there's a knife, whatever the issue may be, you're not aware of what your child is doing. So you turn just to make sure that the child is okay to show the child safety. When you turn back and you carry on that is allowed, because it is authentically established in certain habido that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was leading the prayer with the companions in a congregational prayer. They were praying in Jamaica and he was leading them, and he would every so often turn, and he would
look towards the distance, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has sent one of the companions on horseback to go and look at something to go and check on something. And so the prophet SAW Selim was worried about him, and he was worried about what he asked him to do. So he would turn every so often to see whether he'd come back or not. And even in the Hadith, which we mentioned, last week, of where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was late coming to the prayer, and Abu Bakr rhodiola was leading the people in the prayer. And when he came back, the companions began to clap, began to clap. And notice then they clapped even more and louder. And then he looked to his
right and he saw that the prophets of Salaam was standing in the front row. And that is when he moved back and allowed the prophets of Salaam to move forward. In the Hadith, the prophet will send them didn't rebuke Abu Bakar for looking, didn't say, why did you look, repeat your prayer your prayer is invalid, he allowed him to do so because there was a need, there is a necessity to do so. And so if there is a need, it is allowed. Otherwise, it is something which a person shouldn't do and it is something which should what passengers
To stay away from one of the benefits of this hadith and many of the other Hadith that we spoke about yesterday, and even last week, it shows the amazing nature of the Sharia and this religion, that even with these wait acts of worship, Islam is not just a religion, of worship and spirituality, but it is extremely practical and reasonable as well. Because there may well be a reason for you to turn in your prayer. Islam is not so rigid where it says that you're not allowed to turn in your prayer. Or if you do so, your prayer becomes invalid, you have to pray again. But this is from the Russia and the mercy of Allah azza wa jal, and the kindness that we find within the
Sharia, the when there is a need to do something, and need to, you know, like, bring someone's attention to something like we said yesterday, that if there is something harmful, it is allowed for you to draw the attention of the person in the prayer during the prayer to that thing. And that's because the Sharia is reasonable, and it's practical, and it shows us that it's not just about worshiping Allah azza wa jal, but that we obviously have other responsibilities as well. So if there is a need to turn it is allowed to do so. Otherwise, a person should stay away from it and avoid it and a large surgeon knows best.
had his number 193 100 assemble the Allahu anhu Paul, Paul Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam either Karna Sala Europa followups open the day you will learn Yemeni maleki mancinelli, pata mikimoto una de or fury via the pottery on the authority of Edison what your law one was said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if one of you is in the prayer, then he is having a conversation with his Lord. So do not split split in front of you know, on your right, but rather on your left under your foot. And this is collected by Al Bukhari and Muslim and in a narration under your foot, or under your foot. This Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam establishes a
number of issues. Number one is that the prayer is a conversation with Allah. When you pray towards a larger region. In that prayer, you're having a conversation. And monada in the Arabic language is when you basically have a private confidential conversation when you whisper to someone and it's extremely private, that is monada. It's not done openly, no one else will know except the two people involved. That is what you have with a larger version. And it is authentically established that when a person prays, for example, and they're reciting surah, two, in fact, they have a large social response to every verse that you recite. So for example, when you say hamdulillahi, Rabbil aalameen,
or praises due to Allah, Lord of everything that exists, a lot responds, and he says Hamad hamadani de Lama generally, that my servant has praised me, and he's glorified me. And then you have this conversation, but every verse you recite from Surah Fatiha, allow response to you directly. And there are other parts of the Orianna as well, in which the problem with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah also responds, like, for example, the final verses of Surah Al Baqarah, where we make rather a larger version doesn't hold us to account for our sins, sorry for our mistakes, genuine mistakes, and our ignorance and so on. In Sahih, Muslim, the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah says in response to those verses, but found, I have done so meaning that I have responded to your door. So there are times when a large surgeon is having this conversation with us during the prayer. So from the etiquettes, of prayer, when you're facing someone, and you're speaking to someone, even if it was just a friend, just an ordinary person that you don't even know, one of the etiquettes that you have is that you wouldn't spit in front of that person, you wouldn't spit in their presence, that would be considered to be extremely rude. So what about when you're standing in front of a large, zoa, gentle, the Lord, the creator, the king of the
heavens and the earth, it is extremely rude. And it is not from correct etiquette that you do. So. However, again, there surely are, allows it in limited circumstances. And that is that if a person must do so, so the general rule of thumb is that you don't spit, but if you must do so, for whatever reason, then you do so towards your left under your foot. And it's also reported in one Hadith that is ascribed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, in which he said that spitting in the prayer, it is a sin. But if one must do so the let him do it under his foot, meaning that when you spit towards your left, you place it, you place your foot over it. And so obviously, during that time,
especially people will be wearing sandals as well. So it wouldn't be their bare feet, but that they would be wearing their sandals as well. And they would be praying in the open desert. So it's not like you know, it's like carpeted and rugs and you start spitting in the machine that would obviously have its own issues attached to it. This is an open grant that we're talking about. And so it's something which shouldn't be done, but if one must do so, then it's
allowed put in this manner on the left under the foot. And this hand It also shows therefore that spit and saliva is not impure. It's not impure. So even though it's something which is considered impolite but etiquette rude, that saliva isn't impure. So if someone spits if it's allowed in the trade shows that is not impure, because if it wasn't pure, then it wouldn't be allowed. An alarm surgeon knows best. The next had it had it number 194

Ancelotti on the authority of Anasazi along when there are a Chateau de la one had a curtain that she placed on the side of her house. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said to her remove this curtain from me, for its pictures have still continued to disrupt me in my prayer. And this is collected in an Buhari and in another narration for indeed distracted me in my prayer. This Hadith also establishes something else which detracts from for sure. And that is basically anything which will detract your attention away from the prayer, anything which distracts you in the prayer. It is something which is disliked for you to pray towards. And if it's in your field of vision, it is
disliked for you to pray in that place. In this Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his wife Arusha rhodiola Rhonda had a curtain, a curtain that they had, she had a sight on the side of a house. And we know that the House of Arusha was attached to the mosque of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. To the extent that if he left the house of Arusha, he would enter into the mission he was joined, right, so he was literally drained together has a very sharp, and the house and the and the mosque of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And that's why it is reported that during erotica, the prophet of Islam would have his lower body in the masjid. And he would put his head in
his house, and Arusha would comb his hair for him. That's how close the house of the prophets of Salaam was to his Masjid. So she had a curtain there that basically in the area that that was between the house and the machine, there was a curtain, which obviously concealed the house, that curtain was bright, and it had certain pictures on it, certain images on it. And the profits on a long wire, it was still an auditor to remove it, because they distracted him in his prayer. And so this establishes the principle, the general principle that it is in the masjid, whether at home, where you pray, there shouldn't be anything to distract you. So for example, if a person was
praying, and there's bright colors that is like you know, you got some art on the wall, and it's extremely bright colors and is extremely, you know, vivid and whatever that will distract you in your prayer. Therefore it is disliked to play in that place. And that's why the prophets of Salaam forbade us from beautifying the massage it in such a way that it distracts us. And it's from the signs of the hour, from a shout out to Sarah, that the people will beautify their messages, because it will be the case then that people no longer pray and they worship Allah as they should. Rather than just you know, they're just attracted by the beauty, the inner and outer beauty of the
massager. And that takes away from the whole purpose of worshiping Allah and standing in front of him. And so this had established that principle as well, that it is disliked, that you have anything which distracts you in the prayer. So therefore, for example, if a person is praying, and they have, for example, an open book in front of them, and when they go into record, they can see the book and they can see the pictures in the book, and it's going to distract them and they're going to start reading or for example, a person places their phone right in front of them and then the phone beeps with a message or an email, and they can see it come up on the screen. All of these things distract
you and they detract from your culture. And so anything like this should be avoided. And the large soldier knows best
that it's Hadeeth 195.

Say, there is no prayer in the presence of food, nor if one needs to go and relieve themselves. These two ahaadeeth, these generations again speak about this issue of detracting from.
The first issue is a person during the prayer that they look up, they look up and they raise their head towards the heavens. This is something which is not allowed in the prayer, the sermon of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that during the prayer, you look at the place of frustration, or you look down at the place of prostration. And that is the opinion of a number of the scholars of Islam, that that is the place that you look at the place of frustration. And in that there is also humility and humbleness towards Allah, that you're lowering your head in front of him, just as you know, when Normally, if you were to go up in front of a king, or someone very powerful, you would
lower your gaze out of respect and honor for them. And Alonzo Richard has more right? That he should be respected and honored. And so by looking at that place of search, that you're lowering your head, and you're showing that humility to Allah, when you raise your head towards the heavens, then that is something which shows the opposite of that humidity and that humbleness. And it shows a certain amount of arrogance, as well as a lack of etiquette. And so therefore, it is something which is prohibited in the prayer. The second Hadith speaks about an issue, which we spoke about already, and that is the presence of food. And we said that if the food detracts from your attention in the
prayer, then you can eat and then pray. The other issue that is bought in this habit of amnesia, that we haven't mentioned before, is that the same ruling also applies to a person who needs to go and relieve themselves. So for example, you come into the masjid, and the karma is given and the prayer is about to start. But you know, you need to go to the bathroom to relieve yourself, you go and relieve yourself, even if that means you missed the prayer, again, with that same condition, as we mentioned about the food with the condition that that would then detract from your control. So if it's not going to detract from your for sure, you know, you just feel like going to the bathroom,
but it's not really anything major. It's not really anything which is desperate when you go and pray. However, if it's to the extent where you won't be able to pray, you won't be able to enjoy that prayer. You can't concentrate in that prayer, you know, you're going to get stomach cramps, and it's going to be extremely uncomfortable for you. Because you need to relieve yourself, then you go and relieve yourself because otherwise that prayer, or lack will show up and you'll just be waiting for the Imam to finish the prayer and just be waiting for him to conclude so that you can leave and the large surgeon knows best. The next Hadith were an herbivore era todo de la one. An obeah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam appalled at a thorough boom in a shape on the further thought about how to come for the Moscow bar or wahoo Muslim metonymy v was at the Sala
and authority of Abu huraira the long run that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, yawning is from shade barn. So if one of you yawns, they let him prevent it as much as possible collect about a Muslim and Timothy with the with the addition of in the prayer. This is also something which detracts from the foreshore and something which is disliked to in the prayer. And that is a person morning. And it's disliked because the morning is normally either because you are extremely tired, or because you're bored or for some type of reason. You know, you're feeling very lazy and lethargic. It has something similar to this. And that's why you want you've lost interest, as
opposed to someone who's connected in that prayer to a large surgeon, that understanding the verses being recited and they're connected to the recitation of the Quran, they wouldn't be yawning. Normally yawn when you're when you've lost interest or you're tired and so on. And so therefore, this hadith says that it is from shape on learning is from shape on. And we know in another Hadith also in a Muslim, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if you yawn, then place your hand over your mouthful indeed, otherwise shippon will enter shavon will enter into your mouth. And so therefore it is something from shape on yawning generally. And so in this Hadith, the prophet
SAW Selim is saying that you should prevent it to the best of your ability, you prevent it and you try to stifle that you want as much as you can. Obviously, if it comes out, then you cover your math and this is from the experts of the press as well. And with that, from the dillo we have concluded this chapter of Russia in the prayer, and next week, inshallah we'll go on to the next chapter of the chapter of massages, and mosques. So if there's any questions inshallah we'll take them boys will conclude the processing history we mentioned the Hadith of the person replying to the synapse in the prayer, should a person begins to lambs in the first place, if he knows that person is
praying, based on the Hadith of the Prophet or service policy, yes, he can do so if he wishes to and there's no harm. Because even though the companion saw the prophet will send them praying, they gave him the Psalms. And after he finished from the break, he didn't rebuke them didn't say, you know, you're disturbing me. Why did you do this? He allowed them to do so.
Yes, if it's specifically directed at him the initial response if he's the only person there, for example, you're at home and you're praying and someone enters and they given something you know is directed to you. There's no one else there then you should respond. As opposed to for example, there's like 200 people in the masjid someone who enters in this SLM on a cul de sac general Salaam. And so even if like, not every individual responds, that's, that's incorrect. So even in the width of prayer, when you're making dua, you raise your hands, not your your head and your eyes. So your eyesight is still down, you're still looking towards the ground, but you raise your hands, no more
children, you don't have to stop from the player walk in front of you in the prayer, because the professor said them aloud his grandchildren to convince him and they would play with him whilst he was praying and he would carry them and so on, and so on, reported that he would push them back and so on. And like you said, children don't understand. And so
it's difficult for children whether male or female, anyone that's a child, obviously, until the age they can understand no better young children Mashallah, it doesn't it doesn't affect you.
Sorry, if you
if you get distracted, you're currently on. Like it doesn't break your prayer. But it may decrease from your your depending on how much you get distracted.
If it is a motive time and you've missed the hustle, then you play a surface and then you play mosaic. You might also just end up motive milanos best.
How does the person game for short match like a lecture in and of itself. And it's something which recovered I remember, in a Saturday lecture not too long ago, like I had this topic of the show, but briefly, like number one is a person extract a large solution. And they seek refuge in the law from shape one from his whisperings and his traps. Number two that a person prepares for the prayer so they make Budo properly. And they come for example, if they're praying in the mush, they come early, so that they won't be rushed to come to the prayer. They won't be missing the military from number three that they understand what they're reciting in the prayer. So they understand the Koran, they
understand that the vowels, that they're going to be reciting that cow that they're going to be reciting as well. And number four, that a person is conscious of who that they are, who they're praying to. So they know that they're praying and standing in front of a large soldier. And as the profits on a longer article seldom said prayers if it is your final prayer. And so if a person has that level of consciousness and they treat that prayer, as if he may be the final prayer, then that would enough self help them increase in for sure Angelenos best.
