I received an email once
as most of us receive a lot of emails
and it has a link attached.
You wonder whether you should open this link or not.
I decided to go ahead and open the link
it opened up
a close up on a young man, just his face.
And you hear the narrator says, Yeah, Abdullah, that was his name.
If he knew then what you know now
what would you have done differently?
The first word that came out of his mouth was a man he
he had three to be specific.
The first wish he said
at the men and s do delay he says that
he said the first wish that I would be able to prostrate to Allah once.
And he said, if I'm allowed or able to prostrate to Allah once again, or once more
that I wish I would die right there and then when I'm prostrating to Allah subhana wa Jalla, viola
they can camera pulls back, a bigger frame. You see that young man is a quadriplegic.
He's actually sitting on a wheelchair, paralyzed from the neck down.
He's been in a car accident
and you can no longer bow down or prostrate to Allah.
He said what is saddened? What saddens me is
that my friends
come to me now and they feel sorry for me that I'm in this state.
But they seem friends never came to me once says I'm sorry that you're not praying.
You wasted your life away.
So let us take the salon.
Because he said there's one verse in the Quran that scares me.
Yo, makeshift ones up.
What did the
The day on Judgement Day.
That allows upon Allah to Allah
will come and be revealed in a way befitting His Majesty.
We will be asked to prostrate and bow down to a loss why Nigella? Viola? Some of us will not be able to
Could you imagine yourself as E enough tea on Judgement day where it's 50,000 years? The sun leaves its orbit it comes close to our heads
where difference of opinions where the word mean in Arabic is is that a mile and distance or is it only the span of eyeliner?
Whatever it is, it's going to be close it's going to be hot people will be drenched in sweat. Some of us will even want to see just through me now fire I no longer want to wait for this day to start just for allows Hana data to start judging us. This intercession scam is just about what this whole thing about intercession is not for us to stay away from the Hellfire and go to heaven. It just for a loss of Hana data start holding us accountable.
He's on that day some people will not be able to bow down or prostrate to law did you imagine everyone is bound down or prostrating to Allah and you standing. It says you have an alien who has your back will be solid copper you will not be able to bow down you know who these guys are.
Those who did not bow down or prostrate to Allah subhana wa Jalla Viola in this dunya
in this life, when they had the time they had the health the wealth, no excuse.
So if you did not prostrate down to Allah.
In this life, you will not be able to prosper.
To allow on Judgement Day. Imagine yourself on that date.
On that day, as the Imam jolanda Hydra said, it is the first thing that you will be asked about.
There are two narrations of the Hadith. The first thing that you will be asked about is a Salah. Another narration says the first thing that you'll be asked about is that bloodshed a demand.
So, the opinions are the first thing that is that the rights of Allah Subhana Allah Viola is the Sala then the rights of every band,
the rights of the creation with the bloodshed. So let us think about the one that we are held accountable for personally, the scholars say that it is a physical, a Bader that nobody will ever be able to do on your behalf. Even though some of them are that the act of worship, somebody can do it on your behalf even after you die.
Somebody can make up your hedge if you die and you have not made it
basically on your behalf after you died, or even make up your sleeve. But Can somebody pray on your behalf after you die?
It is the only provider It is the only act of worship that you physically have to do it.
What if I don't
let's talk about the consequences of both or the reward. Word worried. The reward you will get and
imagine usaba v n od
go into hanifa nah man Rama de la la
and he said I finished the Quran in three days.
He says go back and read it as if I'm hearing you.
He says it took me three weeks
is go back and read it as a prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is listening to you
is it took me three months
is go back and read Quran. Like Allah subhanaw taala as if Allah subhanaw taala has listened to you is I could not even get over the Fatiha
because when we're talking about the celebrity
you want to think that you're talking to a loss
as if the score and is revealed specifically for you a lot of stock into you all the alignment and now he is all the commands and the provisions is specifically for you not anybody else.
That's why I believe in them is Rosa de la iguana Saba does main he says when we heard Yeah, are you Allah Xena Amano. Oh you believe can be a unit. It is a command that will be ordained upon us or a provision that will be forbidden to do.
We'll talk briefly about how you perform the salah and the most important parts of the Salah.
The honeymoon alladhina home fee Salatin has shown
we'll talk about who sure
and see how allows the panel gela Viola looks at us.
Then he looks at our bodies.
He looks at your hearts.
So where does your heart
where does it link when you pray it? And ot
is where the shopping list is.
I'm solving all my problems in the prayer most of us do.
There is a story
about a man that was praying about a behind an Imam that it was very tough, tough Imam. Nobody can touch this Imam no mess mess with him. No muss, no fuss.
So if a man makes a mistake, nobody comes to tell him because he's very harsh.
So this man was outside from the from that city and he's beginning to pray behind this Imam
and the man forgot he only made like three records instead of four.
And when he
made this limb this outsider says yeah, man. Well, you know, come up do one more record mix, which there's no i did not make a mistake. Because no, no, there is only three three, not four.
Because how do you know that? He says, You see, I have four stores.
The first rock I thought of how to organize and market the first door. The second rocker I also looked into second store and third records. I never got to the fourth store.
look at the beauty about it. The horseshoe or the horseshoe are
some of the righteous scholar says when he was asked how do you attain who you are.
He said when I say Allahu Akbar, I mean it.
So let us From now on, derive the outcome. Now, there is change from now on. Because we build our talks about two things. At minimum, we'll call these twins of faith, knowledge and action. So you can not come to this room at the end of the expected when you walk out of that room to be the same. You can't, you've wasted your time.
It's all about change. It's all about improving ourselves. So we learn something we implemented in Sharla. So from now on, when you say Allahu Akbar, you know what that mean? What does it mean? What does that mean? It means the law is greater literally translated, of course, the law is the greatest, but it means Allah is greater than anything else. So let me put you to the test before we actually go on.
How many of us
hear this call? Allah, what?
You hear the caller,
saying Allah is greater Allah is greater.
for Google to that in itself, it's another lecture and so on. But just we'll take what we have here for now.
Allows return, and some of us do what?
watching that movie, or that soccer game, or the cricket game.
And you hear the caller saying a lot but a lot sweeter. What does it mean? greater than your spouse, with your children? Good, and your boss, rather than everything else, all the bills greater than that movie, you want to watch more than that game you want to watch? But of course, shutdown will not leave you. So the movie you're watching is a Bollywood movie, man
is not just any movie.
Because the boy loves the girl. And the Father. The villain does not want them to get married. So they have to run the loop. And it's so romantic, and you get involved, and you're cheering for them now. Run girl run is so romantic. You go girl. Marry this guy is the love of your life.
Or hunting for my country man. This is from Islam, herbal water, Minna de de la escuela is fabricated Barton. It's not an ad.
So now, I taught my kids something I'm hoping that I share with you. As soon as you hear Allahu Akbar, they go like this with their hand.
Whatever remote control they have, whatever pen they have.
Where do we get this from? comes from a Sahaba de la jolla.
He had an X in his hand
as he was chopping the wood.
He heard Allah. Allah upon the call of prayer. What did he do? He actually went like that. He did go the hand
and he said something
took the visa that should be written with a gold leaf.
He says lab Boudicca Vitara cotton new de la sala. That strike that hit. It is not blessing, the ones that color of prayer calls upon it.
So from now on, think if you hear Allahu Akbar whatever you do after that is not blessed.
shaitan will come and actually remind you things can even turn on Annalisa
COVID and Rama Subhan Allah
He will teach you about things about to do the Quran. read Quran. Yeah, don't say anything. But elephant, terraforming. For every letter you get as an ad you will teach you that. Why is good mood you better what is the lesser degree because you're supposed to pray on time. That's the highest level
So you think when you pray on time, it's like you're depositing the biggest deposit in the bank. The later you leave it, the less deposit you pay in the bank. So he's trying to get you less has an ad. So he's trying to derail you
to keep the attention away from you.
So now, as soon as you hear it from now on, you did go whatever it is. So that man says, when you hear Allahu Akbar You mean it?
Nothing is greater than the law. So if you want to know where you stand with Allah, lukewarm Allah subhanaw taala placed you in errata Antara metalmark fungal FEMA powermock
if you want to know your status in the sight of Allah look where Allah subhanaw taala placed you when it comes to the deen does a lot come first? Or does Allah come manyara when I have time man, places to go things to do people to see I'm busy.
I get some stuff to look after.
Right? So if allows them why not Allah comes first. That means you come first to olanzapine Angela, viola, when you hear the word Allahu Akbar that means a large reason whatever it is that you have to do, you will know right there and then what you're made of well lucky, you will know right there and then who you are.
You can fool yourself at least you can fool people. Certainly you cannot fool Allah.
That's the first thing he said. When you say Allahu Akbar, you mean it.
Nothing is written in the laws of Allah Viola at this time,
at all times, but specifically in the Salah.
And he says as if you see the Kaaba
and you imagine the sins that you've committed. We don't despair of Allah's mercy, of course, but at least at this time, you're thinking of the sins you have committed, and it's surrounding you as it's coming down on you to destroy you.
And this is your last chance
to ask Allah for repentance for these sins and forgiveness
is when you recite the Fatiha you recited, like I mentioned.
You're speaking to olanzapine LG live Yola, you understand? salud comes from Silla, it is a connection and also a prayer or supplication or Rama all that under the definition of solid.
And he said
Imagine that you are now sort of
you standing on the Surat
the path that we will all have to cross over on judgment day
beneath it is the Hellfire
one step out of line your fallen Hellfire
as is as if Melaka note the Angel of Death is right behind you.
As an arrow pointed to your back he can let go anytime this could be your last prayer
let's be honest, if you know for sure that this is your last prayer How will you perform it
most of us do the American Express way
most of us
and who sure yeah oh yeah. Seriously yeah concentration that no to yet no show enough course. sincerity. Yeah. When you come to the masjid
we pray the American expressway
Can you hear that?
somebody is coming to
and when you're always by yourself
but when in front of people it has to be from Baccarat or Emraan Missa
tee time so people behind is a wow Mashallah for sure. That is amazing. How does the better do it? And you can hear him and you turn around say and I'm fasting to
this day for sure we're talking about.
He says if the Melaka note the Angel of Death is right behind you can take your soul at any time. Imagine pray everywhere as if it's your last prayer.
Hellfire is ready
is above all, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah over watch, watches over you.
Could you imagine?
As the Imam is Allah Helen says prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says
is nothing minha is better, give it give us comfort.
in prayer VLAN youlet kurata Haney for sada the apple of my eye. The pleasure in this dunya Amaya says in NASA
amazing will lie. I leave now Batalla de la Anwar elevated apart he used to shake the remember that Do you know when he used to shake
used to actually tremble when he was making a loop? Not brain when he was making although used to shake
when he was asked why? Why you shake them you make them all do his identity about the career of a madman.
He says Do you understand after a few minutes after I finished my will do in the front room I'm going to be standing.
Could you imagine as
a sergeant, a drill sergeant.
You don't even have the audacity to look at the eyeball of the drill sergeant. You have to look like this.
You don't talk back you don't move you don't do anything.
You imagine standing in front of Allah subhana wa Jalla viola, the Creator of the heavens and the earth. When gibreel alayhi salam gibreel Allah Islam
is described with 600 wings that covers the horizon from the east and the west.
And when Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam looked at him and his ascension in the night journey,
he looked at him and he could not exceed a certain thing, a position or a place.
And he was concerned. When Prophet Mohammed Salim asked him.
He says, you see me in that situation?
Did you imagine a Salafi
Islam feel is the biggest is one division says, from every from the foot to the knees, like the heavens and the earth, from the knee to the hip, and so on and to the shoulders, and then is that
beyond our imagination,
and since he was created, he has one foot forward, one foot back, holding on to the trumpet.
He has not blinked an eye since he was created, fearing to miss the command of Allah subhana wa Jalla Viola to blow in the trumpet, hence, ending world as we know it.
And we're standing in front of Allah s e n, o t, what are we doing?
checking this out? Have you seen this before?
Or you get a phone call
and prayer, just checking if it's important or not.
And if the man takes a bit of time,
and you start you know, we don't have a problem with some people when we talk or people go like this, but we have a problem. When they go look that
this is dead or
understand Of course, the man has to work that is not our topic, but it's again, something that we I'm going to share with you.
One man just became just be guided, he was not on the straight path. He just became guided recently, and he doesn't know much. So the was
the first rocker and the members it
could be thorough, or whatever it is. So it was very long. So the man heard the law and he he wanted to get away. The second rocker, the member says Adam Tara case Allah buka Diaz, Hi Bill, he's
the elephant and the elephant is bigger than the Bukhara this has to also be bigger than the buckle so he ran away.
Not knowing what's recited not knowing what it is amazing. So let us come back to and shall let them find out what it is.
I'm going to go through quickly inshallah. And the differences I'm going to come up in the end with the excuses why we why we're not brave.
You know, most of us understand the basics of the Salah, and I'm not going to go into details because we actually have a course
About the Sadat L. TOEFL is a two full days tells you exactly what you need to know about the slap from A to Zed everything you need to know. And more everything you wanted to ask it but you were afraid to ask. You wanted to know but you're afraid.
Now I will go through some of the differences with that interesting of having a little bit of unity. So we don't look at one another, like the wolf looks at the sheep.
We said that the most important part of the soul as well
as the verse again.
The true prosperity of that true believers when they pray and for sure, concentration, ponder and reflect about what you're doing everything else. So most of us when we say Allahu Akbar, you know, the strong Hadith is to put your right hand on top of the left the rest is weak. where to place it. So the brothers now when they say a lot what happens the first thing you look for, and that a lot of brother next to you, where does he put his in the hands
of the naval American chef, he was smart just between the two so he puts it on the table above
humbly Melaka and I will talk about it's not it's not there it's not authentic and not even the motor Mr. Malik does not even put that idea in his own water where you place it down. So now we're looking where does the brother put his end? We just lost the concentration.
So the most important thing is to place it that way.
And now when you will do to do you put it outside you put it inside?
What do you do, man? You look here. Do you look there? How's your back? You don't remember that? He says you put a pot of water doesn't fall. Okay?
When you come back up the rest of the series is and we're not using that. Okay, here's his hand. Does he put it down? Or does he put it here? Huh? I'd like anymore. And that's it. You're out of the herd. You raise your hand. I'm not talking to you anymore.
These are synonyms.
And a lot but if we go down Oh, that's another battle right?
We're going down. Do you go down in your hands first or are you nice first. So brother doesn't go he goes to different messages. Now he doesn't know whether these Mr. De formaldehyde either his elevators? Which but what kind of people are they? Right? So did they go on their hands hersonissos brothers starting to go down slow and then you started to?
Which one are you going down for? reax children just concentrate for life? You understand that? Abdullah Namo de la numa used to go down his hand first. His father Mr. de la used to go down his knees first and that's the Son and the father.
And they did not quarrel about it didn't fight about it. So acceptable here.
The difference of opinions but you understand and when you go down Of course you start the prayer. Some of us Oh yeah. Has
Monica Bala cup, she's okay. Be straighten or equal or parallel. So some of the scholar says is it between the heels and the shoulders? So they actually put the heels the feet parallel to your shoulder? That's according some interpretation.
Some of them says, you know, no, it's actually it's this way not that way. So one brother is adamant and some some of them said you know what, I have to put my foot next to my brother's foot that's a that's their understanding of the heading.
So I've seen this before and I heard some of the brothers talking about this and we started watching this you know the footsie thing here right? One brother goes out like this and the other one that brings his foot back in and the other no goes back a bit further out and the other brother brings it back in so they're doing the funky chicken as they're bringing and they're they're raising the roof in the Macarena I have no idea what they're bringing or where they're doing that what kind of dances as well like and one brother and I've heard this he says you know what, you know next time the person brings his foot next to me I'm gonna put a needle and my toe and he was gonna poke him will
lie It's true these untrue stories
puts his foot down that's it you're not going anywhere
or another I've heard this one to another member says you know if you see anybody moving to think oh, that's not a bad way
to move your finger. If you see anybody moving the finger break it will Masha Allah beautiful gala light. That's a fantastic way to bring it all together.
So we fight over which even part of the loop? Which part of the head do we touch? Do we only use a sufficient for the time? Or is it only all the way back? Or is it the top on the outside that you want? That means you cover the whole we fight over? Which part do we touch our hair or head on that comes to look and our enemies united to cut off our heads?
You understand the message? You have a much bigger fish to fry.
So where are we going to fight over this things anymore?
There's a lot more to it than that.
let us talk
About the excuses because most of the time
you know I don't have the cap thing the one side because they look so cool I mean unfortunately it doesn't it's rounded right around so it doesn't matter where your thoughts the same but you can imagine the brother from another mother
having the gap on the side and the bling bling hanging
and the bands are so wide you can put another brother next to them
don't see the messages
you know operate
when man I mean five times have brilliant never seen you before. No no, you must be on drugs or some I'm here I'm here I'm here and they are everywhere. You know I'm around Kool
Aid Yeah, have you heard?
If you don't, bro you're gonna have to pray anyway.
You understand that? Some of us come to the masjid once in the life that
when he passed away when we bring you in as on
when people ask when to pray and mozaffarian
all your whole life as much as you
very savvy. Let's
be in this life like a wayfair Okay, I'm on a wayfarer man. I'm traveling all the time.
You know it's amazing. It's not makes it easy for you.
When you're traveling, you can combine or shorten of every Aruba year every four prayers every forecast you could make into Oh yeah.
I don't know a message this and that's cool.
You know Prophet Mohammed Salim says I was given six characteristics that allow some final data is not giving any other profit and messenger before me. He says Joel is a lovely msgid amatola this whole earth was made to me to be a Masjid. And the whole purification source of purification. There is no so yeah, there's no water. You see, we haven't paid the bill. That's cool. You know, if you don't have water, you can just do the M drive.
I don't know where the Qibla is, man. Miss compass thing is not working. That's okay. Do your best to find out where the trouble is. And go ahead. No matter what. Whatever the direction you take after this dad taking job. So I can't stand up. Sit down. I can sit down, lay down. I can't lie down.
Move your head. I can't move my head. Move your eyes. I can't move my eyes. Just think about it the brain.
I can't think about it.
Don't have to worry about. So pray before you're dead. Moral stories.
Imagine yourself now back on judgment day.
Why didn't you pray?
I was I was rich. I was rich. I had people do things for me. I had a servant and a servant for my servant, a secretary a secretary secretor
people, you know, pay my way.
Says because you were rich, you did not pray.
He says were you richer than still a man Elisa.
Nobody who's witches and Suleiman arisa profits again.
into precious metals and stones measure.
He says and that his wealth did not deterred from not praying or devoting himself to the worship of Allah.
So I want you to think of this every time that you come up with an excuse. Because what you know that what's the excuse? No, I'm too busy. I get a pinky. I gotta I have to call my rabbits hair. What?
So I want you to hear this sound every time you hear loud when you sleep, and you're not praying.
Here comes one because remember, the scholar has a difference of opinions. If you don't pray in this life, this beautiful air conditioned, nice room. You will pray anyway the hereafter differences of opinions whether they're going to pray in the Hellfire or they're going to prostrate on the stone from the hellfire.
So you're gonna have to do it anyway. So why don't you do it just now and I'll give you the way out inshallah. Don't
so imagine this you haven't prayed because whatever it is the reason
so every time you don't pray I want you to hear that sound in the back of your mind
going where do you ever lead that nasty place?
So the first man says I'm rich didn't work no excuse my nanny Malia halakhah and me so Tanya who luvable low
wealth did not come into my age my disposition my posse did not help me allows those of us who do verbal command verb
command verb magnets and order who do Tony Angeles to take him dip them in alpha
chain 70 and so on.
I go to details on that.
So imagine that it will not help you in ot
Why don't you pray
you heard the first one said I'm rich it didn't work out so is what he's saying. I'm cool. I was so cool.
How cool will you do?
That was so cool.
Is this and the upcoming Isa we put the nice Elissa is to say this earth is my bed the heaven is my cover
did not deter him from devoting himself to worship me
What happens next? Oh
just imagine that
third one Why don't you pray
I was such a good looking I was a hunk God's gift to women. I was walking on earth and men sisters was just
personnel as I was walking by
under under main use of
or your more youthful and beautiful than useless
again before you answer please look in the mirror and be Have mercy and compassion on yourself.
So what happens again
moral of the story is
you will be granted wishes on judgment day.
note or build your own Li Amazon v mat select Candela in Kalimantan, Hua woman water in Brazil
syrup, bring it back. I seen the light I repent, I'm healed. I will pray
I see it now.
Will you be granted that
there's only utterance mere mere words just lip service right?
So how much will you pay as he in order for you to be given
a chance to come back and breathe
I only have three minutes left with you. So I'm gonna sit here and tell
you the scholar says if you are going to give up whatever it is in order for you to come back to this life. So you can do time and soul.
The most important part of the letters by no by non solid the difference between us and them is the prayer.
So if your give your your wife
or whatever Do you have any one column Remember, you will run away from your family your mother everything everybody your work?
Again, you will find your troll tribe, your whole wealth everything you give up just to come back this earth come back to life again. You know what the scholar said? And he had the Omnia. You are living this wish. Don't blow it.
Remember when that man says money that's what I'm finishing with what I started with.
I wish I wish I wish
I'm going to give you now the cure. Just in case. Man I'm doomed.
I'm toast. I haven't been praying.
Relax. the mercy of Allah is greater all.
As a matter of fact, there's a beautiful glad tiding
among the attributes of a man Alamitos among them the slaves to Allah.
This is Illa men tab
Well, I mean I'm Adam saleha for Ola aka bed doula, whose team has an idea of what a beautiful verse as all of course Illa except those who repent, believe and do righteous deeds.
They are in order not to have hazard their order for a reason. Except those who repent believe in the rights disease. Why the unnatural batterien to see the man when a man you're in a gamma solid
because Silva will increase your Eman and proof of your Eman is Amazon righteous deeds, you understand that he you can tell me I believe with no actions and deeds what else in the incentive he was letting me know only
by time indeed a non human being in a state of loss
except those who believe and do righteous deeds out both. So what do I do, man? I haven't been praying. I've been sleeping this and all that stuff. And some people tell you Oh, you've been sleeping for 20 years.
Allah help you man. That means you have to make up the prayers for 20 years and add on top of that is the sunon and then a waffle and pmla and all of a sudden from doing absolutely nothing. Everybody piles up on
how can do that? It's like a brother smoking and tomorrow you're gonna run the marathon is that gonna work? I know there are two opinions of the scholars I go with the easier opinion
the easier opinion as he is to pray is to take a shower wisdom with the needs of children.
Just to cut to the chase is that takes a long time to explain but just because of the respect your time I'm going to finish with this inshallah. Take a shower no matter what. No matter what you've done, no matter how bad you were, you did not kill 99 lives no matter what you've done, ever, ever. Never despair, the mercy of Allah gulia Daniella Dena Astra and push him let us know to Muhammad Allah in Allah Nova Jamia and is not abrogated by in the Lucha Libre used to be
a stronger opinion is that allows Allah forgives all things meaning in this dunya schilke is after when you die when you meet him on Judgement Day that is the one that does not forgive you, when you ascribe partners unto him. So no matter what he Allah's, mercy is greater than yours, wherever your sins are, as long as you have not committed ship.
So the opinion I follow is the easier one more practical.
Take a shower with the knee October wasn't neova Brito October and start fresh because some of the opinions of the scholars if you don't, you're not a Muslim, you want to take a chance on Judgement Day to find out if you're Muslim or not. If you don't pray,
you don't make will do and if you don't make will do how will Prophet Mohammed Salah make intercession for you on Judgement day because he will not know you? He will only know you from the illuminated parts of your body that you need to do it will become lit on Judgement Day. Oh my god. Oh my god. This one my own man, I'll intercede for you. You understand?
You know, what's the conversation on just Monday, masala comfy Safar.
What brought you to soccer and soccer is actually lower than jahannam.
What's the first answer? Hi, Lou. Lamb naku Mina de la vaca. What brought you to Hellfire even lower than that worse than Johanna? The first thing is that we did not we were not amongst those who pray Allah Allah akumina. Most of you want to take a chance. Is there something better than that? When you stand in front of Allah, you come out of it pure and clean again, you will get rewarded for every time you prayed in this vignette in the hereafter. Who do you want to be your neighbor Prophet Mohammed Salah is a price to pay.
The Salah is a down payment. We ask olanzapine Angela Viola to make us among those who listen speech and follow the best of it. After the 100 layerable alameen wa salam on areas of your vein this
