00:00:00--> 00:00:03

So, we've agreed so far

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

that we're going to come into salah, bringing our mind and attention so that it doesn't drift outside of the parameters of Salah. We've also agreed that we're going to make an effort to understand

00:00:19--> 00:00:26

that I dynamics of the solder the ins and outs of the solder, the wisdoms behind the movements, the numberings the statements of solder.

00:00:27--> 00:00:36

And then we added the first of the four layers, what were they are the first of the three layers? What was the first layer of?

00:00:39--> 00:00:41

No, we said this one

00:00:42--> 00:00:44

layer of hope,

00:00:46--> 00:01:01

Raja to come into Salah with hands spread forth, having hope in Allah subhanaw taala that you will not end the solder only after he has filled your hands with everything that you need and fulfill your ambitions and forgiven your sins.

00:01:03--> 00:01:09

Then we added another layer to our shuwa our attentiveness to our soda what was the one after that?

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

Say again,

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

biases. Weeks ago she had we're going back via

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

the element of Kashi and Coffea. To have fear of Allah

00:01:24--> 00:01:32

to come into Salah in a state of trepidation having recognized who Allah Allah Aziz Jabbar and Malik the King, the sovereign is fear.

00:01:35--> 00:01:43

And then in the last week, we covered yet another layer, we said we will come into Salah with the dimension of

00:01:44--> 00:01:48

of, of Mahatma of the love of Allah agenda gelato.

00:01:50--> 00:02:03

So we said again to focus and to keep your mind in Salah number one and then to try to understand the salah number two and then to have a hope in Allah and number three and then to fear Allah number four to have love of Allah Almighty number five.

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

Now we're ready to start

00:02:07--> 00:02:13

investigating the salah itself and the surrounding features of Salah.

00:02:15--> 00:02:28

Now that you have set the scene and if you're able to apply what you've learned so far, you've set yourself up in a good place to enjoy your Salah and to experience this treasure of Osho that we're trying to understand and develop.

00:02:29--> 00:02:39

We want to speak about several aspects in the build up to a sauna. The first of them is the aspect of Waldo.

00:02:41--> 00:02:55

Right, looking at the floor in the bathroom just now when I went in, it seems that everyone in the country has done we'll do in our bathroom over there. But how many people have experienced the joy of

00:02:58--> 00:03:12

anything in life when you do it over and over again, it runs the risk of becoming a little bit boring, mundane and chore like not just the Salah, even the things that lead up to Salah and the things that happen after solder your thicker etcetera will do is one of them.

00:03:13--> 00:03:28

The pre prayer washi yet there are many miraculous dimensions of Waldo and it would be a shame to allow any more model of your life to pass by without understanding them and experiencing them.

00:03:30--> 00:03:37

We want to walk out of the masjid today having transformed the experience of voodoo from something mundane or boring

00:03:38--> 00:03:43

into something that really sets the scene for your solder will do.

00:03:45--> 00:03:59

And the stores of reward are many and there are small tweaks and adjustments that are required to unlock them. And one of those tweaks and adjustments is the mindset or if you wish we can call it the near the intention

00:04:03--> 00:04:36

don't waste the opportunity by simply coming into your wobble with a unilateral intention with a one dimensional approach which is Stiva to Salah you do your will with no intention other than to make your Salah permissible. So you see will do as just unnecessary thing that you have to do. Because you recognize that there is no Salah without Moodle. You see it as a go see La Ilaha is just a means to an end it's a vehicle that takes me to Salah without actually focusing on the vehicle called will do.

00:04:38--> 00:04:46

Right. So it's about the NIA we want to add many years to this model. And that's why in our understanding as Muslims

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

the scholars have said Abdullah human and robotic being the scholar here he said robanda In serene to Outremer who near Waru banner in Kabir into her Kira who near you

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

There could be a small action. By its nature, it is small, but the intention amplifies it.

00:05:08--> 00:05:16

And there may be he said something that is huge in terms of a deed, but the intention diminishes it. It's about the heart.

00:05:17--> 00:05:33

So two people will carry out will do and the reward between them in terms of the differential is like the difference between the heavens and the earth. It goes back to the state of their hearts as they were carrying out their will do. And I perhaps I've told you before that one of my teachers he said to me that when we were in Yemen,

00:05:35--> 00:05:41

somebody knocked on the door. He said, I got up to respond to the cola teacher said to me,

00:05:42--> 00:06:20

what are you doing? I said, I'm going to open the door. He said, That's it. I said, Yeah, that's it. He said, alright, you sit down and open the door. So he went and he opened the door, and then he sat back down. He said you had only one intention. When you said you wanted to open the door. As for me, I intended to walk towards the need of my brother who was standing in the scorching heat. This is in sha Allah, a sunnah. And I intended to smile at the face of my brother this in sha Allah is a sunnah then I want you to put my right hand into his right hand and greet him as is the Sunnah and then I want you to smile in his face. This is of course a soon I wanted to give him the greetings of

00:06:20--> 00:06:43

Salaam. This is a sunnah that I wanted to bring him into my home and this is a sunnah and I wanted to honor my guest and this is a sunnah and I wanted to create space in the gathering for him to first step off in my journey. So you have several you have said the first step all you have to say now hula can make space Allah makes space for you. This is also a sunnah and he said he listed around 40 intentions behind the opening of that door.

00:06:45--> 00:07:00

So the intention as the scholars they say it is to Jarrah hola Ma is the commodity which the scholars trade with they trade we trade with POUND DOLLAR they trade with white they trade with the intentions because they recognize small actions become huge by way of intention. Same thing about will do

00:07:02--> 00:07:22

you can come into your will vote with one near Hasakah la cara Salah becomes permissible. Okay, fair enough, but add other intentions to it. For your next we'll do at the intention of yes is diba to follow to make the prayer permissible number one, excellent. Number two, add another intention. What could it be? I intend to

00:07:23--> 00:07:38

carry out of the instructions of Waldo that were instructed by Allah in the Quran chapter five. He said yeah, you have nothing in common. Oh, you who believe either come to me in a solidarity pharmacielo Would you help him are you here committed Murase when you get up to pray do Your will do

00:07:40--> 00:07:43

my Nia is to carry out Allah's instruction in the Quran. That's another intention.

00:07:44--> 00:08:01

Number three, my intention behind this model is to follow the way of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and how he taught us to make the detailed will do this is another near solo Kamara, timoni, or suddenly he said, Pray as you've seen me pray, which includes the whoodle

00:08:02--> 00:08:10

That's another intention add that to bring up the value of your will do or not, and then make another intention.

00:08:11--> 00:08:42

My Nia is to erase the sins that I've committed with my eyes and committed with my ears and committed with my face committed with my hands and feet when I carry out the window and I'm going to share with you amazing Hadith about this in a moment, that's Nia number four. Nia number five. My intention behind my widow is to give myself a source of light on the day of judgment that is by its nature a day of Bleak darkness will do is a means of bringing you a torch that you need on that day of darkness

00:08:43--> 00:08:55

quick exercise and you notice there are so many Noah intentions you can plug into your window to transform it from something that gets you to Salah into something that gets you to much higher places

00:08:56--> 00:08:58

which include the Salah and more

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

what does the Voodoo of Islam look like?

00:09:06--> 00:09:36

You have the obligatory will do your no frills version of will do your basic will do. The fundamental components are mentioned in surah two nakida chapter five what are they very simple. Either come to me in a Salah when you get up to pray fancy Lulu Hakuna What's your phases? What are you do comida Rafi and your arms until your elbows while I'm salvia OC come and wipe your heads. What are joola comida codeine and wash your feet until the ankles that's your standard we'll do your basic we'll do to get you to solder.

00:09:38--> 00:09:51

But if you want the higher version with all of the add ons, and all of the extra features of glue all of the Sunon involved then look at the works of the fuqaha and what they've understood from the Sunnah and you see

00:09:52--> 00:09:55

a different type of will do this that you just heard and more.

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

What is your will do very basically speaking

00:10:00--> 00:10:26

And quickly because I know most of you are or many of you are aware of this. You intend to make the salah permissible. We've spoken about this a moment ago then the year one year two Maha Luhan called the place of the intention is the heart. You don't need to verbalize it. You don't need to say I am now intending to carry out my will do you don't need to speak about it because the NIA sits in the heart. This is where resolve is born from here.

00:10:28--> 00:10:42

And then you take out your slack. As soon as that beginning with myself and a lot of us are falling short towards the stick which a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would use to brush in his mouth, brush his teeth, not just before salah but before will do.

00:10:44--> 00:11:24

And that is why because generates Dalia that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Lola and Ashoka Allah Almighty Allah Allah to whom BC whacky Hanga Cooney will do. If it wasn't for the fear that I had, that I would cause hardship upon the Muslims, I would have instructed them to do sea work to brush their teeth with celiac before every will. That is because my brother, my sister, you're about to communicate with your Lord. You're about to recite Quran, you're going to be in the presence of angels, and they will be near you. And so the mouth should be pure. And that is why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam even before he passed away, he managed to signal with his eyes

00:11:24--> 00:11:42

and with his weak head movements as he passed away, that somebody hands me a sack and they gave him a sea whack and with the help of Allah mother Isha, he brushed his teeth, and he brushed and cleansed his mouth, which is already pure and bless it. Alayhi Salatu was Salam in preparation for his meeting with Elijah and legendado.

00:11:43--> 00:12:10

So you intend that we'll do number one, number two, you brush your teeth with the sea whack if you can, number two, number three, you say Bismillah. In the Name of Allah, if you are in the bathroom, don't say it verbally put it say it into your heart or say it before you come into the bathroom Bismillah. And then you wash your hands three times up and up to and including your wrists, your hand, your left your right beginning with your right three times each as you know.

00:12:11--> 00:12:20

And then you will wash your mouth and your nose. Right, you will wash your mouth and your nose

00:12:21--> 00:12:56

you will use your right hand and you will bring the water into your mouth. And at the same time with your right hand you will bring water into your nose if you can. This is an ideal way of doing it. But there are different ways. With one handful you bring the water into your mouth and up into your nose and you sniff it until it reaches the upper part of your nose if you can, and then using your left hand you will blow your nose because the right hands is for the upper part of the pure things and the left hand is for the Cathar the impure things. So you bring the water into your mouth and nose using your right hand and then you will bring out the water using your left hand and you will

00:12:56--> 00:13:02

swirl the water in your mouth three times. And you will do that for your mouth and for your nose three times.

00:13:04--> 00:13:34

While earlier bill is in Sharpie Illa and takuna saw Iman the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said exaggerate in bringing up the water in sniffing up the water to the upper part of your nostrils When cleaning your nose, except if you are in a state of care because then you may solo it. Then after you finish that you will wash your face three times what are the parameters of the face that needs to be included in water lengthwise it starts from around here I mean my diabetes Shahril are seen mourtada

00:13:35--> 00:13:38

from the area where hair usually starts from.

00:13:39--> 00:14:09

So in the case where if your hair is receding or some people's hairline is quite further back, you don't need to include your face from here. No is the normal place where hair starts from from around here. Right so that's it starts from here and then it drops all the way to the bottom of your chin bottom of your jaw. Allowing for and then with whites is from ear to ear. So all of this area here is called Edward Minaya so that we can more calm and this is what you meet people with allergy because you meet people with it all of that needs to be included in the washing

00:14:10--> 00:14:19

including the recesses of your eyes, all of the other pots all of it needs to be included in the washing and then you do that three times.

00:14:21--> 00:14:34

And for those brothers who have beards in sha Allah, all of our brothers will have beards right unless there is a condition Subhanallah This is the color of Allah but the blade and the shaving and the machine this is not a condition. The brothers should have beards.

00:14:35--> 00:14:46

So if the beard is thick, you pass your wet hand over your beard as you are washing your face and then you bring your fingers that are wet and you pass it through to the roots of your hair. This is called a clean

00:14:48--> 00:14:58

and that's for those who have beards but are quite thin. This is against the creation of Allah subhanaw taala they have thinner beards in that case they need to wash the inside and the outside of their beard

00:15:01--> 00:15:24

then you need to wash your arms, your right arm first and here is the thing you need to begin from the fingertip of your arm and bring it down to your elbow and including your elbow. This is a common mistake a lot of people make in Moodle, that when they start there will do it they start here with their wrists and they start doing this. And then number two, and then number three, and this part here their palm is, is dry. This is a huge era,

00:15:25--> 00:15:38

the washing of the Moravec or the the ad the hands until the Mirage the elbow, it starts from your nails your fingertips up to and including your elbows, three times to your right and then three times for your left.

00:15:40--> 00:16:02

And then with fresh water, you will put your fingers together and you will start to be more Democrats and Democrat than yours the beginning of this part of your head and you will wipe your hair back until you get to the nape of your neck and then you would bring it forward again. And as for our sisters who have longer hair, they don't need to pass a wet hand over their entire hair they just need to bring it from the front to the nape and back end and they are finished as well.

00:16:04--> 00:16:14

And then you will put your index fingers into your ears and you will wash them and using your thumb you will rub the outside part of your ears to clean that as well.

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

And then you will wash your feet

00:16:19--> 00:16:45

three times each beginning with the right up to an including your ankles where you don't need a copy me dinar Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoa to the ankles from the Hellfire wall to the ankles from the hellfire. And he said this when he saw some of the companions washing their feet but they had not submerge their foot with water ie there were parts of their feet that were left dry. He said whoa to the ankles from the hellfire.

00:16:47--> 00:17:05

And your toes should be included in the washing there as well. I say all of this brothers and sisters whilst adding a caveat, a very important disclaimer here. Beware, beware of Westwater. Beware of falling into a problem of obsessive compulsive disorder and OCD type of behavior.

00:17:06--> 00:17:29

Where you begin to wash your arms and your mouth and your head twice and thrice and 10 times. We had one sister recently who came to us with a case and she said help me because my Sana and my widow takes on average six hours a day and it's causing problems between me and my husband now. Six hours a day each Salah takes on average an hour and 20 minutes.

00:17:30--> 00:17:32

I'm here because shaytaan terrorizes people.

00:17:33--> 00:17:54

And the specific term for this in English is the OCD of scrupulosity. We say it is a wristwatch to carry in Arabic and I was thinking about dedicating a section for this here in this lecture but I thought it's so important it needs an entire perhaps a Delta course all on its own. We will do this in sha Allah in the coming weeks or months in Shaba.

00:17:56--> 00:18:01

Then you've completed your will do and here you are to say a dua

00:18:03--> 00:18:08

Muslim narrates on your authority of Omar that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

ma'am in the Raju when

00:18:13--> 00:18:14

you have to walk by

00:18:15--> 00:18:19

Mammon coming I had in Yatta worked for us even Whoo.

00:18:20--> 00:18:28

So my Hakuna eyeshadow Allah in in Allah, Wanda Mohammed and Rasulullah in footie hadleigh Who Abu Abu Jannetty as

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

yet who Lumina ye Hashem.

00:18:33--> 00:19:02

He said, Any person who carries out the window and perfect it, and then says after the will do I testify that there is no God but Allah Muhammad is the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the eight gates of paradise will open up open up for him on the day of judgment, and he will be given permission to enter through any one of them he wishes in such a simple act. And look at the opportunity these are the things we are to remember when we are doing our will do

00:19:04--> 00:19:26

remember this do our I shared with you the shahada eyeshadow Allah ilaha illallah wa shad Wanda Muhammad Rasool Allah in the other edition which are telling me the mentions in his jam add the addition of the DUA Allahumma, John The Minitor wellbeing or John Lee Minamoto hearing Oh Allah make me from those who turned to you in repentance and make me of those who purify themselves an amazing opportunity law in the law. Why would we miss out on that?

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

And I will say I didn't agree. The Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Whoever finishes his will do and he says the following dua Subhana Allah Huma will be handshake, I glorify You, oh Allah and I praise you and shadow Allah ilaha illa and I testify that there is no god but you are still futile care what I do when I turn to you in repentance and I ask your forgiveness what happens? CO T badali cafetera. In those statements will be written in a book. So moto Baba then it will be sealed with a seal

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

Following up sir Eli Roman piano and that book will not be broken and the seal will not be opened till the Day of Judgment.

00:20:08--> 00:20:17

So it's a reward that has been deferred for the day of judgment to surprise you and make you happy on a day when you need happy surprises and comfort.

00:20:18--> 00:20:32

Memorize this Subhan Allah Muhammad 100 Cash Edwin La Ilaha illa Allah to be like after your will do. So there are multiple opportunities these are the things to think about when you are doing your will do is not just about making the Sunnah permissible.

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

And one of the amazing aspects of Judo

00:20:40--> 00:20:43

is that you can describe will do as being your ID

00:20:44--> 00:21:05

for the Day of Judgment for the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to recognize you with. You haven't met him. You've heard about him. So you've loved him. You've believed in him, you've dedicated your life to his sunnah. And he will recognize you on the Day of Judgment but how since he's never met you, it's through your blue

00:21:07--> 00:21:38

and that is why in the Sahaba on the authority of Abu Hurayrah, our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once visited the graveyard and he said, As Salam aleikum, Dara comin meaning Salam aleikum, oh dwellers of the earth. Oh, righteous people. Were in the insha Allah Hubei Camilla Hoon. Very soon. We're going to follow you and die. Very soon we're going to join you in Allah insha Allah who become law who and God willing, we shall soon follow you.

00:21:39--> 00:21:45

And then he said, What did he know is Waggoner Oh, I wish I had met my brothers.

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

So the Companions they asked a valid question.

00:21:50--> 00:21:56

Our listener is Atlantic era. So are we are we not your brother's or messenger of Allah?

00:21:58--> 00:22:07

He said unto us hobby No, you're my companions. Were f1 Luna Nadine LM, Yeah, too bad. But my brothers are those who haven't come yet.

00:22:08--> 00:22:18

That's you Inshallah, and that's me. We hope that's us. We are his brothers who have not come yet. That was at the time of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, I haven't met them. These are my brothers.

00:22:20--> 00:22:32

So they said to him, okay for Daddy fu mellem Yachty bad omen O Matic. How will you recognize a messenger of Allah those people who come after you? Will you recognize them on the Day of Judgment valid question number two.

00:22:33--> 00:22:34

And then he said to them

00:22:35--> 00:22:38

All right, hello hon. Allah Who have you known

00:22:39--> 00:22:44

homeroom who had Jalla de Navarra halen both mean don't mean.

00:22:45--> 00:23:22

He said if a man owned a group of horses that had white marks on their foreheads, and white feet, and these horses were found in in a crowd of another group of horses that were completely black, would he not recognize his own? They said yes, O Messenger of Allah. He said likewise, in Almighty yet tonight, oh man Korea naughty Hora and Maha Jolene. I mean, after it will do. Likewise, the people from my nation, they will come on the Day of Judgment with light emanating from their faces and emanating from the limbs because of the effects of whoodle

00:23:24--> 00:23:27

ig La Ilaha in Allah. So this is your ID

00:23:28--> 00:23:37

don't rush to come out of your will do. And to carry out a no frills version, a takeaway type of will do no, take your time, don't waste water.

00:23:39--> 00:23:50

But at the same time, enjoy the experience and think about you're building a case to be recognized by the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, as you submerge your limbs with water for will.

00:23:52--> 00:23:58

And what I find even more amazing about who is that not only does it cleanse you of your physical impurities,

00:23:59--> 00:24:05

it cleanses you from the spiritual ones as well. It cleanses you from those sins that you've committed with every one of your limbs

00:24:06--> 00:24:07

miraculous

00:24:10--> 00:24:11

and in a beautiful Hadith

00:24:13--> 00:24:21

which Muslim the rates on the authority of Abu Hurayrah the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said think about this and some of you will hear this hadith perhaps for the first time

00:24:23--> 00:24:29

he said either powered by Allah Abdullah Muslim or I will mean when a believer does the will do what happens

00:24:30--> 00:24:49

for God's Salah was Yahoo Harajuku min ie he couldn't do happily at another la bi Na Na Alma. I will not Katrina and you begin to wash your face in will do. He said every one of the sins that you've committed with your eyes will fall out with the water until the very last drop.

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

He said for either Salar de Harada mini a day he couldn't help me out in battle shahada who now Allah headache

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

Katrina and therefore when you move on to your arms and you wash them every sin that you had committed with your hands, they fall off with the water until the last drop of water. He said for either her salary G Hara German Ridge li qu hupy at in machette Harry Julia Houma Anna, attorney, Ma, and then when you wash your feet every sin you'd committed with your feet, places you'd walk towards.

00:25:24--> 00:25:37

They fall out they come out with the water or until the last drop of water the Hadith says had diarrhea, collusion opinion means lube till you come out of your window completely cleansed from all sin.

00:25:39--> 00:25:41

In allah how generous is ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.

00:25:42--> 00:25:57

Now that's why we have a lot of our brothers whom the moment they carry out a sin, the first thing they do is they go to the bathroom and they do with their will do and they look into that water and they realize that this is their sins Allah is taking away from them to experience yucky uncertainty.
