00:00:29--> 00:00:59

wash Hello hola Ilaha illa Allah who the hula Shetty cada Wanda Mohammed and who are soo sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam I'm about to do for in Hiral Hadith the Kitab Allah heeta Allah will hire al Hadi do Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam where Sharon Ohmori Mahadeva to her Wakulla the 13th Buddha who bid the item Lola we're calling lobola that infinite

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

a my bad

00:01:02--> 00:01:07

before we begin part of the etiquette insha. Allah of Duma

00:01:08--> 00:01:14

is that if you come you do not sit or you do not sit until you pray.

00:01:15--> 00:01:30

right even if the Habib has started the hotbar you do not sit unless you pray to work as and that is what the prophets Allah Allahu Allahu wa salam commanded when he saw someone sitting without praying. He's asked him to stand up and pray.

00:01:31--> 00:01:43

Now when you come, and it's the dam is being called, some of us wait, while the other man is being called. And when it's done, then they start their salah.

00:01:44--> 00:02:10

And we say no, don't wait for the Sudan to finish but rather pray as soon as you arrive. Get it would be more important for you to listen to the hotbar than answer the more than it's more important for you to listen to the hot word and answer the more than and if you want to get both of them. Try whenever possible to come early. So you would catch this and you would catch that.

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

Now

00:02:15--> 00:02:18

a man once came to sell ban.

00:02:20--> 00:02:26

The Companion of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He came to him

00:02:28--> 00:03:14

and he asked him he said a bit of Nibi Amylin material Jana, I'll be happy family Allah is telling me about a thing that will admit me to heaven or of the most beloved deeds to Allah. So he asked him once he didn't give a reply, he asked him twice. He did not give a reply. He asked him for the third time. And then so Ben, he said, I asked Rasulullah sallallahu ala who early was seldom this question, and he answered, I like Kirby Kathy sujood for inoculant the student Allah He said you don't Sajida in Quetta, baleka, Bihar hacer una were hotter and cabbie her healthy aura aka Bihar da Raja. He said I asked the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa early he was telling him the same question

00:03:14--> 00:03:29

and he said he told me do a lot of sudo to perform a lot of sujood because whenever you do this, Allah because of it will write through you a good deed and erase a bad deed and elevate you a rank closer to him.

00:03:31--> 00:04:11

So the recommendation of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam is to do what a lot of sujood and what we mean by a lot of sujood here is this ajoute that is in the Salah, in addition to sudo the tilava when you recite the Quran, and which recommended for you to prostrate or sudo to Shaka the sujood of gratitude, but let's last two are infrequent in comparison to the sujood that we do in the Salah. So when the prophets Allah Allahu Allah who were early, he was a lamb recommends sujood is recommending sujood in the Salah, because we don't have a sudo that is independent of Salah.

00:04:12--> 00:04:16

So do a lot of Salah but in particular, a lot of sujood

00:04:18--> 00:04:28

and our connection to sujood goes all the way to Adam allihies sinner and it doesn't of course and there it begins with Adam.

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

When Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded the angels, what alpha Tala canal come from muscle Warner come from Napoleon Hill mela is to duly Adam for Sergio Illa IBLEES Allah Mia co Mina Sergi Deen Allah Muhammad aka test do the Amato Paula Anna Hi Robin Hi, Dr. Nieman Nari waha. Dr. Holman thing, it says Allah subhanho wa taala. He said we commanded the angels to prostrate in sudo to add them. And this prostration by the way is not a prostration of a bad worship but

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

prostration of greeting a price raishin of showing virtue to the one that they prostrating to, not of EBA and that is a similar prostration as you will encounter in Surah to use of Yaga to India right to Hadassah coca Washam so welcome our right to whom Lisa did in the dream that use of Alayhis Salam had when he told his father Iacobelli he must Salam that I saw the stars and the moon and the sun prostrating to me, all of our above we added our Shahar ruler who saw Judah and in then in reality, the fulfillment of that he elevated he brought up his parents on the throne, and the old prostrated Institute to Yusuf Ali Salam, and that is a prostration of greeting and respect, but for

00:05:48--> 00:06:27

the Ummah of Muhammad. Ali, his Salatu was Salam. That is prohibited. That is not our Sharia. You're not allowed to bow or to prostrate to anyone except Allah subhana who were to Allah see, we don't greet people with prostration. That was for past nations. But going back to the command that Allah azza wa jal had given the angels and included in that is the shaytaan. Because of his refusal of frustration, he was cast out and condemned and promised Hellfire because of his rebellion against Allah azza wa jal. So you find in the sujood,

00:06:28--> 00:07:20

a signal an act of submission to Allah subhana who were to add, versus those who refuse to submit to Him, and they refuse to prostrate and those are the disbelievers, the rebellious ones, Allah has Zota will punish. So that this is the mark sujood is the mark of the believer. This the one who submits to Allah subhanho wa Taala and you will find that Mark mentioned in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Muhammad Rasool Allah will let you no matter who she does or Alka fairy or hammer obeying the home Tara Home Rule can suit Jada you're gonna follow me Robbie him wanted one SEMA home fee will do him in atheris suit. Allah subhana wa Tada says Mohammed, the messenger of

00:07:20--> 00:08:06

Allah, and those who are with him, are stern with the disbelievers, compassionate with the believers. You will see them Rocha and Sujatha in often acts of Bowing and prostration to Allah subhanho wa Taala seeking the pleasure and the bounties of Allah azza wa jal and they bear the mark Allah continues they bear the mark of subdued on their faces. And that is not the physical mark that you will see on the forehead that some people may have but others don't. But this is the light of EMA. This is the light of iman. This is the light of worship that emanates from their face, Sima home fee, would you hear him ye mean authority suit? And that means that they prostrate with

00:08:06--> 00:08:40

sincerity to Allah azza wa jal, so they have that mark in the dunya. And by the way, they have it in the era as Rasul Allah is Allah Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam said in some of the Hadith that he will be able to identify his OMA on the Day of Judgment, even though he did not see them. And they say, how could you Oh prophet of Allah, and in some of the narrations of these Hadith, they will be they will be Roman authorities to do they will have light on their foreheads on their faces from sujood. So that sujood

00:08:41--> 00:08:50

will identify a person as a believer as a Muslim and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be able to recognize him.

00:08:51--> 00:08:55

And that sujood is a protection

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

from hellfire,

00:08:59--> 00:09:00

even if a person

00:09:01--> 00:09:20

enters it, so he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam. In Allah ha Rama Allah Nari Anta, Aquila, Manuel Diaz sujood. Allah azza wa jal has prohibited Hellfire from consuming the spots of sujood that is if a person even if they are sinners,

00:09:21--> 00:09:29

and the Enter Hellfire but they pray, the spots of sujood whatever will touch the ground when they are in servitude that will not be burned.

00:09:30--> 00:09:45

So sudo it is a protection from hellfire. And Hellfire will not touch a person who completely submits to Allah subhana wa to Allah but if that is lacking the spots where he had submitted to Allah, that will not be touched.

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

And the shaytaan going back to the first idea that we've mentioned, recognizes the virtue of sujood maybe more so than a lot of us. So he said Allah He is Salatu was

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

Salam in the Quran has surged at the facade it is at a shaytaan we have key yaku YAHWAH EULA who O'Meara has to do with the facade the other fella who will Jana will omit to this to do the fossa to Philly and now

00:10:13--> 00:10:27

he says when the child of Adam when the servant of Allah azza wa jal is reading the Quran and he reads the sedge, da, where he is commanded recommend it to prostrate and he actually goes into prostration. Isn't the shaytaan withdraws crying?

00:10:28--> 00:10:31

The shaytaan when he sees this, he withdraws crying.

00:10:32--> 00:10:44

And he says, yeah, well EULA. He says, Woe to him, meaning wrote to himself, he was commanded to prostrate and he did and he will go to Jana, and I was commanded to prostrate and I refused. I am going to hellfire.

00:10:45--> 00:10:48

So when you read that prostration in the Quran,

00:10:49--> 00:11:04

and you prostrate remember that hadith because anything that causes the shaytaan to cry and wail like that is beloved to Allah azza wa jal and you should oppose the shaytaan in all means, because that brings you to him subhanho wa Taala closer and closer.

00:11:06--> 00:11:10

And, in fact, that is what the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said.

00:11:12--> 00:11:18

A caribou Maria kulula. Abdo Mia Rob behavior who was searching for xe Rumina.

00:11:20--> 00:11:29

He says the closest that a person will be to Allah is when he is prostrating when he is in prostration. So do a lot of dua

00:11:30--> 00:11:42

the closest that you are again to Allah azza wa jal in all the positions that you will be throughout the day is when you are in sujood. So he says do a lot of DUA

00:11:44--> 00:12:04

and why do a lot of dua in other Hadith he said Alia Salatu was Salam well I'm Mister do do for actually roofie him in a dua coming in and use the jab welcome. He says as far as to dude, do a lot of dua Ineke fish day do fi exert yourself in making dua because you are likely to be answered in that position.

00:12:05--> 00:12:13

And as a side note, as a side benefit if you want to combine the best positions when you're closest to Allah.

00:12:14--> 00:12:20

And the best times when you are closest to Allah, there will be at the last part of the night

00:12:21--> 00:12:46

acabo Maya Kunal Abdu mill Rob Biggie fie JioFi labile. Earth here is the closest you will be to Allah azza wa jal is in the last third of the night. So if you combine both, you will be closest to Allah subhanho wa taala, you will be close to Him and He will be close to you. And if you were to ask yourself, why is it that I'll be closest to Allah as urgent in that position in that spot?

00:12:48--> 00:12:51

So you look at what you're doing when you're frustrating.

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

The most honorable part of your body is what

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

is your face?

00:12:58--> 00:13:12

That is the part that you will protect with the rest of your body. If there is loud noise, if there is an Allah attack, what do you do you protect your face with this, which is the center of your consciousness. You protect your face with your hand.

00:13:13--> 00:13:21

And you could ask yourself, isn't your hand a part of your body as well? Why isn't it the reverse? Why don't you protect your hand with your face.

00:13:23--> 00:13:43

Because that is the most honorable and most important part of your body. That's what you will save. That's what you will keep even if you lose the rest of your body, that's what you will keep. So if you take the most honorable part, and you put it on the ground, then you submit it to Allah azza wa jal in the most effective and complete way.

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

That's what kings and Monarchs ask of people, when they want to see them, submit to them, put the most honorable part of you on the lowest part.

00:13:54--> 00:14:03

And show me that you submit. And that's why it's haram to be done for other than Allah zoton. So for one is because you submit to Allah as Odin incompletion.

00:14:05--> 00:14:13

The other also it's because that position is the person position where you are far away the furthest you are from the dunya.

00:14:16--> 00:14:18

As you stand for Salah,

00:14:19--> 00:14:21

your eyes could wander left and right.

00:14:23--> 00:14:28

And record your eyes could wander left and right. But in sujood, there's no other place to look except down.

00:14:30--> 00:14:43

There's no other axis for the dunya that you have. And when you close that axis, that allows your heart to reflect on what you are doing. There are no distractions, any more visual distractions. Now you have to take care of

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

the reflections, the distractions of the heart, and if you manage to restrict that, then you could be devoted to Allah subhanho wa Taala in sujood. So in that sujood the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said you are very close to Allah the closest

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

And when you're closest to ask Allah azza wa jal for the best

00:15:08--> 00:15:09

it gives you honor.

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

And it gives you salvation.

00:15:15--> 00:15:19

One Sahabi for Obeah ImmunoCAP.

00:15:21--> 00:15:25

He used to voluntarily serve and assist the prophets Allah Allahu Allahu alayhi wa salam.

00:15:27--> 00:15:44

So he said about himself, I used to serve him throughout the day. And at night I will sit by his door, just waiting if he needed anything from me, I would hear him say repeatedly Subhan Allah, Allah Subhana Allah Baal Aleem, Subhan, Allah bissap, until I fall asleep, he said,

00:15:45--> 00:16:22

and he kept doing this for a while, and then the prophets Allah, Allahu Allah, who earlier was said and wanted to reward him for that deed. So he said, Send me for LTF asked me for something so I would give you asked me for anything. Then that man said, Give me a little bit of time to think about it. Then he said, Then I thought about it and realize that anything I would ask from the dunya will perish in end, because the dunya itself will come to an end. So I didn't want anything from the dunya. So it comes back to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And he said All prophets of Allah, I ask you that you pray that Allah will save me from hellfire and admit me into heaven. And another

00:16:22--> 00:17:01

narration in the Finnemore famous narration, he would ask, I asked that I'd be your companion in Jannah. What I forgot to Kafeel Jana. So the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He said, who advised you to say this? He says none. But I realized something about the dunya. So I don't want anything from it. He said in NIFA. And he says, I will do this. What are in the NFC kobika throaty sujood helped me to achieve this with yourself with a lot of soot. If you want this protection from hellfire to be admitted to Jana, to be the companion of Muhammad Ali is Salatu was Salam in the higher higher realms, he said, assist me with a lot of salute.

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

So that is the thing that saves and that is the thing that elevates because that's the thing that Allah Zoda loves.

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

And interestingly Subhan Allah and if you need a visual to help you like Roku and like sujood

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

he said Allah has Salatu was Salam

00:17:22--> 00:17:32

ala in the ladder either karma you suddenly Ota b2b equally for the CIA or RTP for Kula maraca, Oh sir jaydata Sakata ottoman.

00:17:33--> 00:17:46

He says when a servant of Allah stands in Salah, all of his sins will be broad and put on his head and on his shoulder. So whenever he goes to Roku and sujood, some of them will drop off.

00:17:48--> 00:18:15

So if you want to think about it every time in Salah you're carrying your sins and in record, some will fall off, some and record more will fall off. And the more that you will do this, the more of them there will fall off until you become sinless, if we do enough of that. So ask Allah will Allah mean to make us of those who accomplish this and do and strive to do it a holy holy Harada was the federal law he would have confessed a few.

00:18:34--> 00:18:46

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Hamdan cathedra on 311 Without a can fee, also li wa salam, O Allah rasool Allah He Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam, and my bad.

00:18:48--> 00:18:55

We are not the only people who price straight to Allah azza wa jal, not the only beings who price straight to Allah.

00:18:57--> 00:19:00

The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said about the angels.

00:19:02--> 00:19:09

He says, I thought this summer or hook paler her and it he says the sky is making sounds it's squeaking

00:19:10--> 00:19:18

and it deservedly so. Matthew Hammond moldy RBL saw a bear Illa O'Malley Aquila, Malecon Wilder Anja Bata has to do with Angela.

00:19:19--> 00:19:31

He says it's making sound the sky and deservedly so because there is no space as big as four fingers joined together, except that there is an angel of Allah lowering his forehead Institute to him.

00:19:33--> 00:19:52

So imagine how vast the sky is. Every almost every inch of it there is an angel of Allah zodion ensue due to Allah and the sky is so heavy it's about to rake and that's why it's making that sound. So all the angels of Allah zoton are in frustration to him Subhanallah with God.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

And he and Allah azza wa jal said also about the rest of creation

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

Hola mero Hola Mohalla hola humming che yet the failure or the learner who annually I mean he was Shema it is Sanjay Leela he will home Darth Imran he says do they not see that everything that Allah has created that casts a shadow to the right and to the left, they're doing this in frustration in salute to Allah azza wa jal submitting to him. So all the shadows that you see as they move from night today, from morning to the end, from right to left, that is an actual frustration to Allah zodion So everything prostrates to Allah subhanho wa Taala and I'm Tara and Allah has to do the whole Memphis similarity woman field was Shem su will come through when new drummer will G Bell who

00:20:43--> 00:20:49

was sheduled over a theorem in a nurse what cathedral Polly Hill, it says do not see that Allah,

00:20:51--> 00:21:28

everyone in the heavens and on earth, the price treat to him and also the sun, and the moon and the stars and the mountains and the plants and animals and a lot of people and a lot of people deserve punishment, meaning they don't. Everything in the universe price streets to Allah subhanho wa Taala whether you comprehend it or not, but they submit to Him subhanho wa Taala in their own way. And in the Hadith the Prophet Sall Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam said about the sun that whenever it sets it prostrates before Allah azza wa jal, the Almighty seeking His permission to rise again.

00:21:30--> 00:21:38

And one of those days she will not given what will not be given permission and will rise from the West, but every day it prostrates to Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:21:39--> 00:21:47

So to be part of that is to be connected to everything that is around you and to be a true servant of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:21:49--> 00:21:55

And in addition to all the benefits that we talked about elevation in the earth era protection from hellfire,

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

the good deeds that you will earn

00:22:01--> 00:22:14

they are also or subdued also saves you from distress, saves you from anxiety and from depression because imagine you will be close to Allah as a surgeon and you will be asking him

00:22:15--> 00:23:00

and Allah spoke to His Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam when he said well, I could not Allah more and nicaya lyrical Sadhguru kabhi Maya Kowloon fossa behind the Arabic Allah ko Mina CGT it says we know that your heart or your chest grows tight because of what they are saying. So what is the remedy that he gives to Muhammad Ali is salatu salam, the one who's carrying the greatest burden by the way, he says for sub behbehani The Arabic glorify Allah and praise Him and to be among those who prostrate and Allah continues and worship Allah as Odin until the very end. But the remedy that anyone who's in distress who's facing difficulty needs is put your head on the ground and ask Allah

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

azza wa jal, and the longer the solute the better that it is, the longer the sujood the better that it is. So now ours to do it shouldn't be simply a phase that we're passing through, I want to go through sujood simply to finish it and then finish the Raka. But the sujood becomes a destination. You're going to Salah why, because I want to reach that suit. And that sujood is a NEMA by the way. It's an enema, and only those who miss it will understand how much of a nightmare It is only those who don't prostrate and then begin to prostrate will understand how much of an AMA it is that Allah will guide you to the fact that put your head on the ground in this position and then ask and see

00:23:43--> 00:23:52

how you will feel. And it's almost an immediate relief and comfort from Allah subhanho wa Taala and what you expect from a position where you're closest to Allah

00:23:53--> 00:24:38

and if you do it right and do it often you will long for it you would wish for it you will hate the time when you rise from sujood because you because you feel the distance. Now I was close and now now I'm not I'm not as close see you along and crave to be close to Allah subhana wa Tada. So now our Salah should be a destination, our schedule should be a destination, and it should be something that we look forward to. And we practice well. So spend more time with your schedule and spend it with intention and ask Allah xojo for everything that you want, because that is the best time to ask him subhanho wa Taala whereas Kim Rabbil Alameen or hamara Haneen to forgive us all of our sins and
