00:01:42--> 00:01:48

Muhammad Abu Sulu sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam.

00:01:49--> 00:01:52

I'm about to fire in hi Ron Howdy.

00:01:55--> 00:01:58

Howdy, howdy Mohammed in Salalah alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:02--> 00:02:04

wakulla Desert in wakulla.

00:02:08--> 00:02:23

All praise belongs to Allah, the Almighty the old merciful, we thank him. We asked for his help for his forgiveness and protection from the evil of ourselves in the sense that we do.

00:02:24--> 00:02:31

Indeed who serve Allah guides no one can lead astray and who serve Allah leads astray no one can guide

00:02:33--> 00:02:41

and bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone. And then Mohamed Salah Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam is a slave and messenger,

00:02:42--> 00:02:59

the best of sieges The Book of Allah. And the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the words are religious matters, those are innovative, and every religious innovation is evident and every man dies misguidance and every misguidance will be in hellfire.

00:03:02--> 00:03:06

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:03:09--> 00:03:10

I have boo

00:03:11--> 00:03:16

Allah macchine Allahumma said you do not have will be ready in a lifetime I said you do have

00:03:18--> 00:03:21

the best spots on this earth.

00:03:22--> 00:03:28

The most of them beloved to Allah hi Zodiac are the masks the messages.

00:03:30--> 00:03:33

Which means that if you were to scan a city

00:03:34--> 00:03:38

and try to locate the best place in it,

00:03:39--> 00:03:42

that place always will be the master.

00:03:45--> 00:03:48

And Henry la we have some connection to the studio.

00:03:49--> 00:03:55

We come to it every Friday, when we want to get married, when we want to bury our dead.

00:03:56--> 00:04:00

But this is or is this sufficient?

00:04:01--> 00:04:04

If this is the best place in the city,

00:04:06--> 00:04:09

what type of connection should we develop with a Masjid?

00:04:10--> 00:04:13

for what reasons? What did we get from it?

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

This is what we want to know in this football.

00:04:19--> 00:04:24

Allah says in the Quran, in the Miyamoto Musashi de la

00:04:25--> 00:04:27

la, la la la la la

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

la la la, la la.

00:04:33--> 00:04:38

It says only those who have a model

00:04:39--> 00:04:43

a model of the houses of Allah so demeaning physical, a model.

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

Those who build it. Those who maintain it, keep it clean. That's one aspect of a model. Another aspect and a branch of a model are those who frequent domestic inhabit crane and both

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

are considered a matter of MSG, who are those who will do both of these things? Those who believe in Allah, and then the last day, and stablish, the Salah, and they give this a guy and if you're none but Allah, so those are likely to be guided.

00:05:18--> 00:05:32

So a lot is telling you that there is a relationship between these ads and these beliefs and being in the masjid. That is if you have these beliefs, you believe in Allah.

00:05:33--> 00:05:51

Where would you want to be if you believe in the last surgeon? He believed in the last day? You want gin and you want to escape from Hellfire? Where would you be if you have that belief? If you stablish the sun? What would you naturally find yourself? If you feel none but Allah azza wa jal.

00:05:52--> 00:06:01

So then you ask yourself, I want to stay away from the harem, and be as close as I can be to Allah, how would you find yourself?

00:06:03--> 00:06:40

If you say, I want to be guided, and I want to find this guidance, I want my children to be guided I want my spouse to be guided, what do I What would I naturally find myself. So the problem lies it is telling you that there is a relationship between these two, if you have these beliefs, you will be in the message. And if you want to develop these beliefs, and develop these practices, they're weak in me and you, but you say I want to enhance them, I want to be a better person. Where is this location that will enable you to be a better person is no other place, then the message it?

00:06:41--> 00:06:44

We call it, the house of Allah xojo

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

but this is also your house.

00:06:51--> 00:06:54

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

Allah said you do boo to life?

00:07:00--> 00:07:01

Allahu Allah manzara who

00:07:02--> 00:07:04

is in a coma?

00:07:05--> 00:07:06

He said,

00:07:09--> 00:07:09

You know,

00:07:11--> 00:07:12

I'm saying that these messages

00:07:14--> 00:07:16

are the houses of Allah on the face of this earth.

00:07:19--> 00:07:25

This is the house of a lot. Of course, a lot as the origin has dominion everywhere.

00:07:26--> 00:07:29

And in a sense, all this earth is

00:07:30--> 00:08:08

a place where you can pray, but selected from all of these phases are places that Allah loves more than others. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is saying these messages are the houses of Allah zildjian just like think about it. All this earth is a Masjid. But the cafe is better than all of them. So you want to be closer to Allah azza wa jal where would you head to the houses of Allah so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is saying that Hadith? These messages are the houses of Allah. Allah is bound to honor a ukri moment, Zahra is the one who visits a lot in them.

00:08:09--> 00:08:12

So every time you're coming to the messages for you visiting

00:08:14--> 00:08:24

Yes, you may have a friend. Yes, there might be a HELOC. All these are pluses and you know, benefits. But who are you visiting every time you come to the masjid?

00:08:26--> 00:08:27

you're visiting Allah so

00:08:28--> 00:08:45

you're coming closer to him subhanho wa Taala in ways more than you can do at your place, in your market place at your workplace in your house. There is something special about every single messaging that is only

00:08:46--> 00:09:05

that no other spots. And I said this is your house as well. Because also the lives of a lot to sell them also set MSG to and this is an authentic Heidi and MSG do Bay to Cooley Dotty, he says the message is the house of every pious person.

00:09:07--> 00:09:21

Think about it, you have a home that you go to. But more than that your home this is actually your home. If you and I have a you will feel that this is your home, and you actually would want it to be your home.

00:09:25--> 00:09:32

The sahibi that Allah has promised He who inhabits the house of Allah Rohit

00:09:33--> 00:09:50

meaning relief and mercy and for him and her to pass quickly on the Scylla on the Day of Judgment, pass on that bridge on the Day of Judgment into Allah had promised the person who makes the masjid his and her hope that they will get that thing

00:09:52--> 00:09:53

Subhanallah

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

when you are in that message in the house of Allah God, what do you get?

00:10:02--> 00:10:05

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:10:07--> 00:10:15

that praying and congregation is better 25 times or 27 times more than if you pray alone.

00:10:16--> 00:10:17

If you're praying in a

00:10:19--> 00:10:25

matter of patience Malaysia, it is 25 or 27 times better than if you do this on your own in your home.

00:10:27--> 00:10:28

Well then you can

00:10:29--> 00:10:42

fashionable do so Maharaja lol misty de Lyonne who's who will have Salah, meaning that he sits on a lot he was sitting there is a few is taking you through a process what's going to happen if you make will do and you do a 12

00:10:43--> 00:10:50

and then you head to the masjid and the only thing that is taking you out of your home to the message is the Salah.

00:10:51--> 00:11:12

He says every step that he will take will eliminate a sin and give him a good deed until he reaches the masjid. And when he prays and he sits in his little Salah where he has prayed the angels will continue to make his Safar and do out for him. Allahu Allah do ballet

00:11:13--> 00:11:35

masala Allah Allahu Allah have mercy on him he ALLAH forgive him y'all like Brenton repentance, y'all accept his repentance from him. Continue to do this for him until he leaves the masjid Malamute with the female as long as he still has will do and as long as he did not hurt people around.

00:11:36--> 00:11:56

If that condition is there, as long as he's sitting in the masjid, who's making dua for him the dangers of online soldiers. Meaning once you come into the message you are in the company of the angels of Allah. As long as you are waiting for us and as the prophets of the law he was in and I said you are in a Salah.

00:11:58--> 00:12:11

You just sitting, you're reading your urine, you're making your ticket whatever it is, it's counting as if you are praying and if you wait for half an hour if you wait for an hour if you wait for two hours, all that time will count as if you are praying

00:12:13--> 00:12:17

and if you wait from one side to the other, all the time.

00:12:18--> 00:12:20

Is sudden

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

said

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

I'll

00:12:31--> 00:12:32

tell you about what

00:12:34--> 00:12:48

through which he eliminates all sin and raises you degrees in gender. This is yes O Messenger of Allah called a spell mchattie he says you make will do and you complete it. Even dislike some difficulty maybe it's

00:12:49--> 00:13:03

you don't really want to do but you do it for the sake of Allah zodion so completing your despite difficulty working for masajid and taking a lot of steps to the house of Allah zodat to the massage.

00:13:06--> 00:13:11

This is waiting for Salah till the next select comes on for that eco revolve.

00:13:13--> 00:13:17

Eco develop this is as live you are being station for jihad

00:13:19--> 00:13:29

is Allah loves this from you. Your heart is connected to the message in your body is connected to the message.

00:13:30--> 00:13:32

And it's not going to happen overnight.

00:13:33--> 00:13:35

This is not going to happen overnight.

00:13:37--> 00:13:42

But the more that you send time in it, the more that you allow your heart to feel

00:13:44--> 00:13:52

alive in it. The more that you send to the angels of allies around you, the more that you will love the message it

00:13:55--> 00:14:04

also lives a lot he wasn't himself among those who will be shaded on the day of judgment when there is no shade except the shade that Allah will provide.

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

The massage it

00:14:09--> 00:14:18

is one whose heart is attached to the mystery is a horror German who had died when he leaves can wait to come back.

00:14:20--> 00:14:45

Of course it's not going to happen overnight. But that is the type of relationship I am you should have with the masjid. The longer you stay the longer you listen. Because every time you're going to be coming here being the law surgeon, you'll be reminded if you forgot, you will learn something that you did not know about before. You will see someone who is doing something that Allah loves and you will imitate and copy them

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

enough

00:14:50--> 00:14:55

to be so close to Allah azza wa jal, one of the mentors actually of being in the masjid

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

at a time when the messages were furnished differently than they are today.

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

So people you know, could probably sit in a Masjid or whatever, because it's sand and they can cover it up.

00:15:08--> 00:15:10

But the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, he said,

00:15:12--> 00:15:26

telling people about how they should behave inside the masjid. He says if you were to sit in the messages, do not sit in front of you when you are praying, because Allah xojo is between you and the Qibla

00:15:27--> 00:15:52

don't you imagine this, but when you are standing in Salah, you want to understand what's happening when you are praying in the houses of Allah zodat what is happening, who is between us notice who is between you and the Kubler Ross region. He says you are conversing with Allah don't sit in front of you. And also he said don't sit to the right of you. Because to the right of you is an angel.

00:15:54--> 00:16:02

But when you're sitting at the house of Allah, you can't see them but if you believe Mohamed Salah you it was in them, you believe that this is happening

00:16:03--> 00:16:13

to the right of you is an angel, but better company can you keep on better company could your spouse and children key that to be in the company of the angels of Allah civitan

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

and another heading that you probably know

00:16:20--> 00:17:02

he says a lot of us in the Mr. Mahoney baited me booty La, la, la Suna obey, no, it says if a people sit in the house of Allah zoton reciting the book of Allah and studying it, what is going to happen to them when they're doing these two things, they pick the best location to be in and they could be at any other place. Because other places are very attractive. They're very shiny. They're advertised all the time. But here in a sense, if we could call it advertisement, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is advertising the messages. Why should you come to the masjid versus other places? It could be at a restaurant it could be at the mall, you could be in the movies you can be doing any

00:17:02--> 00:17:09

other thing but then for one reason or another, you come to the house of Allah azza wa jal and say I want to be here.

00:17:11--> 00:17:31

And even if there is some hesitation, some difficulty in the beginning you say to yourself, No, stay here. This is a rebar This is what the Prophet Solomon talked about to be stationed in the obedience of Allah. And if you try and you do it, eventually you'll start liking it is what are you going to get when you are in the houses of Allah studying the book of Allah?

00:17:32--> 00:17:36

Allah who Sakina tranquility will descend upon them

00:17:37--> 00:17:42

to Morocco, and then mercy will surround them will cover them.

00:17:45--> 00:17:50

Again, the angels will surround them with that God will love him and Allah will mention them.

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

To those who are with him, Suppan

00:17:56--> 00:18:02

saved yourself in a world that lacks tranquility. Where can I find it?

00:18:03--> 00:18:11

You have to run away from the world to the houses of Allah and locate that tranquility within it created.

00:18:12--> 00:18:37

How do I create it by sitting here? and reading the book of Allah and studying it alone or with others, then that tranquility Sakina will descend? Where do I get the mala surgeon? he get it in the house of bars. And I want the angels and we can just begin to tell you what the company of angels will give you is that I want them to be around the angels and for them to be around me. I want to

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

spend time in the house of allies.

00:18:41--> 00:18:46

And if you want to be mentioning you with the angels,

00:18:47--> 00:19:03

that is something that Allah loves and for which he will be talking about you to the other angels. That's an honor. And you will only get this in the houses of Allah May Allah so Jamaica for those who love uninhabited houses, affordable holy had our stuff

00:19:23--> 00:19:33

at hamdulillah Hamdan caphyon on Pleven oberen fee will suddenly will suddenly mala Rasulullah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sallam sadly he was sitting

00:19:36--> 00:19:37

Of course.

00:19:39--> 00:19:45

messages are inhabited or populated, run by people.

00:19:46--> 00:20:00

And because we are imperfect, the messages are gonna be imperfect. I say this because some people will say well, I went too much did so and so or missed it this semester and I just encountered a frustrating experience.

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

So I stopped going

00:20:03--> 00:20:14

while I went to that other method I was in welcome. So I stopped going. And we're not going to deny that this happens and it could happen. But the question here, are you going to make this stop you?

00:20:16--> 00:20:33

Or are you going to stop going to all the message because of one bad experience with one message? Or two or three? Are you going to lose all of these benefits and rewards from a lot as well? Just because of one or two or three people or 10? Isn't this your message?

00:20:35--> 00:20:46

Isn't that your messages? every message that you go to your messages of you're going to stay away from it, and your family is going to stay away from it? Where are they going to learn Islam?

00:20:47--> 00:20:58

Where are they going to meet other pious men and women, that they're going to push them towards Allah zodion where are you going to meet people will remind you if you forget,

00:20:59--> 00:21:02

recharge you when you feel empty,

00:21:03--> 00:21:06

assists you when you need assistance.

00:21:07--> 00:21:36

Where are you going to find the believers if it's not the house of Allah suited but more. So where are you going to find Allah azza wa jal and his Rama if you distance yourself from the masjid, so I'm not asking you to come to the masjid here because of the activities in it. There might be activities or maybe though there's nothing I'm not asking you to come to the masjid for the sake of so and so or leave it for the same go so and so. Come to the house of Allah because of a lawsuit.

00:21:37--> 00:22:02

Be in domestic because you need it. Because you want what ally is going to give you and then if you are in the masjid with that intention, I guarantee to you basically learn you persist and you strive, you're finding the method what you want, you'll find that you'll find that tranquility will find the people that you want to meet, but you have to be in it for you to find it. If you allow the shame

00:22:03--> 00:22:26

to dissuade you discourage you and take you away from the message that he has one. So yes, you can go to one message and you will encounter something that you dislike your entire infrequent MST then after some time somebody will say something that will upset you but never stop coming to them as did because always remember it's not for them that you're coming. It is for Allah Zoltan.

00:22:29--> 00:23:05

And then if you want to be active in it, if you want to hold up position in it if that comes later, but you're not coming for opportunities for leadership, you're not coming for opportunities of this lady, you're coming here primarily because I want to put my forehead to the ground and pray to Allah Zeldin and be forgiven, everything else follows never let anything like that any any frustration in the house of Allah has to stop you and if you know you can find how you know this particular message does not appeal to you find another one and handler there are many but find one

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

and frequent it and if you frequent msgid

00:23:10--> 00:23:15

Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam said it's a beautiful ID

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

bash bash Allahu la he can

00:23:23--> 00:23:43

be him. It says if a person inhabits a Masjid for the Quran Salah meaning that this has become a sought his slaves His home is Allah every time he comes to the masjid Allah smiles at him allies happy with him, like a lost relative who comes family back to his family.

00:23:44--> 00:23:46

When you come into the masjid,

00:23:47--> 00:24:15

maybe maybe no one's gonna greet you no one is gonna say Salaam to you it does not matter because I want you to remember that every time you're taking a step inside the masjid. I want you to know that Allah has our camera Haman is watching you and is happy with you because you are doing this. When your heart is connected to Allah azza wa jal like that it then does not matter who says something good to you or back to you is the founding aligned the house of a lot. And the last thing that I want to say

00:24:16--> 00:24:43

is domestic or not not really the last thing I pulled out a couple more things in Charlotte domestic is not only for the old, there's just sad subpanel idea that goes around that the message is for those those who are elderly and I will wait wait till I'm older only then will I come to the house of Allah xuejun if you're a slave of Allah servant of Allah, you want to be close to Allah you're not going to wait till you're older because there's no guarantee you're going to reach that age.

00:24:45--> 00:24:51

Young and old. We need this place young and old. Our Eamon needs it.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

And one of the things can also remember of why we're coming to the masjid one of the hours that you

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

You say or leader that you say when you come into the house of Allah zodion Bismillah Allahu Allah, Allah Muhammad. And you see a lot of

00:25:09--> 00:25:11

Allah omen for me the gates of your mercy.

00:25:13--> 00:25:23

There's not one or two or three days, but gates of Allah's mercy open to you and your family when you come into the masjid gate of

00:25:24--> 00:25:38

the gate of asking Allah for forgiveness, the gate of how many times you come into the masjid you forgot about, you find somebody raising his hand and you say, I need to do this and you start doing it. You remember if you forgot,

00:25:40--> 00:26:03

there is the guilt of remembering your sins. There's the gate of meeting somebody and assisting them there is the gate of just saying salaam aleikum to them smiling in the face of that is happening. There are so many good gates that are open to you when you come to the house of Allah azza wa jal. And when do you say this? When you come to the mystery, because the gates of mercy are in the houses of Allah? And through them Do you get to agenda?

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

So it's good that we are connected to the mysteries on Fridays, but that's not enough. It needs to be better and to grow stronger. You say how do I do this? Practically, I'm going to ask you in sha Allah to pick at least if we only coming to the masjid only once a week, let's just do the following. Pick one

00:26:26--> 00:26:49

on one day, and just come to that center, that will be your extra thing that you will be doing in sha Allah if you have an intention, beginning this week, meaning on Saturday on Sunday, I'm going to pick a show or a method or this just once, once a week, and that add that to your routine, and start doing it and keep up with it and keep up with it and keep doing it and never miss it.

00:26:51--> 00:27:02

And be in the know with time, you'll find yourself at one that single sundown that single day will turn into two days, and maybe in two three days. And maybe we'll never miss that

00:27:03--> 00:27:21

throughout the week. And at least we become connected to the house of Allah azza wa jal one day in addition to Friday, and then maybe two days extra, and maybe then every single day, and maybe then twice and three times a day allows us to notice because once you take one step towards Allah,

00:27:23--> 00:27:38
