This is the key that I want to share with you. Why why in the winter salah. Do you see people sobbing more than any other time of the year? weeping? How come? The Imam he begins making dua imploring the majestic Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala calling upon him, praising him, glorifying him asking for Jana seeking refuge from Jahannam confessing the weakness and sins and deficiency and asking for what we don't deserve complaining of our problems and our pains for our own man, our families and our children ourselves. You see people weeping. Why?
Because during that moment, you've experienced something called Al monada.
Al monada. It means private talk with ALLAH SubhanA
you experience the sense of gauging and secret private communication with Elijah.
For a lot of people there so now for many years, feels like it is one way traffic.
One way communication, I am praising I am reciting I am dying. It's me sending things to the heavens. And not once does he experienced all throughout the year other than Ramadan perhaps in winter when it becomes too weak communication, and this is what opens up the hearts as it bleeds. It bleeds it sins and allows a man to fill in its place. Munna yah, this is the secret to come into your Salah, feeling that this is a conversation with my Lord.
So you say, Allahu Akbar, hold on a minute, what did you just say Allah is greater. You have just told him directly.
That you you're a Be my Lord, You are greater than my worries and greater than my ambitions. And you're greater than the job that I've just left to pray for you. You're greater than my spouse, you're greater than my illness. You're greater than everything's I've come to stand before you. You feel that you are speaking to him and he is responding gently to Lego.
And then you you begin to introduce a surah to refer to what do you say when you begin your Salah? Subhanak Allahumma Obi handig Glory be to You owe Allah and I praise you.
Look, I praise you you're speaking to him directly. What about aka smoke and bless it is your name. What Allah just duck and exalted is your mind. Well, ilaha yuroke and there is no god but you, yaki you're not saying to someone, can you deliver a message on my behalf to Allah subhanaw taala you're not saying that.
You're not singing Can you take a message to him and say that I praise You and I love you and I need you. You're speaking to him and all you need to do man with no middleman.

So coming to your Salah with this mentality.
Why is it that we love people whom we love so much.
We're not so attached to them anymore when they're dead because they can't talk back.
That exchange of empathy and love just now Subhanallah
Before I came to you here I had a case with the Shediac counsel, husband and wife they want to divorce at the core of it was what the wife said they feel like the man is dead What do you mean sister? MashAllah healthy man Strong man now she's a no he's doesn't show empathy.
He doesn't praise me. He doesn't give me the the emotional satisfaction that I require just to speak well of me and to reassure me, does he pay the bills? Yeah, good with the children. Fantastic. Does he help in the house? He does. But you want to divorce? Yeah, because she doesn't give me what I need from an emotional perspective emotional. That's why you when you feel that you're spoken back to there was communication that's when we love
what he learned his method will Allah to Allah belongs the best example. Allah Almighty speaks back at you and that's why we enjoy the wit of Salah so much and we want to take that idea in with it and extend it to every one of our Salah every Salah you make I am so I am about to engage in Munna Jaya, the private talk with Allah Subhana Allah
Subhan Allah be an IV glory to be glory to my Lord, the mighty, to speaking to him.

And then he said, Allahu Allah and Medic, Oh Allah, you are the king. Look, he's speaking to Allah. It's not just an invocation of prayer that you're just uttering he's speaking to him.

And I said, because it was so long it was as if he had disappeared into a different world. And he wouldn't feel his injured feet that were cracking, open and swelling, because he's speaking to our Lord that he's obsessed with that conversation. He continues and he says, hola, hola.
