So where are we are in our journey is as you said, we are now in a posture of sujood. We are prostrating to Allah subhana wa Tada.
And there is a very key record here pillar of the prayer that should be discussed at this particular juncture. In fact, it should be discussed at any point of Losada
it's a record of pillar meaning in the absence of it, your Salah could be rendered invalid.
It's up there on the same level of someone who prays without Moodle.
And this is the eurocon of format Nina. Nina literally meaning tranquility, or composure. To pray with serenity to not rush the salah to give each position each posture it's hard it's your it's do it's right.
And in the famous Hadith which Buhari generates and Muslim on your authority, Baba Hora era, the Hadith known as Hadith to almost see it is solidarity.
The hadith of he who prayed incorrectly.
A man came into the masjid and he gave Salam to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he took to a corner in Nigeria another way and he began to pray. When he finished his Syrah, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him era Jaya, for suddenly for inoculum to suddenly go back and repeat your prayer because you have a braid. So the man went back and he repeated his salah.
And then the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him era Jaffa son leave in Milan tussilago and repeat your Salah you haven't prayed
and the man does this a third time and he hears the exact same commentary you haven't prayed
and so this is a hobby this companion is baffled
and he said when did the batha Bill hack the mouse you know, the Euro data I live in the I swear by Allah or messenger of Allah. I don't know how to pray any better than this. So please teach me and so he gave him instructions listen to the instructions bit by bit. He said to him either comb their inner solidarity for kept beer, some Muckrock na sa kemenah Quran. When you get up to PRAY, LISTEN to the instruction. Imagine you are the one receiving this information. When you get up to pray. Say Allah Allahu Akbar. Then recite whatever you can from Quran
he said to mark our dogma in rakia, then bow till you find it midnight meaning till you find tranquility in your beret.
He said tomorrow ha ha de la Calima then stand back up till you find tranquility in your standing.
So much good habitat that my inner Sajida then prostrate till you find tranquility in your prostration for modulus had that thought my inner Jalisa then sit up till you find tranquility. In your sitting, he said to my family Caffee Salah Attica Kula, then repeat this for the duration of your Salah.
So the key word here is that my in till you find tranquility. So this collides head on with the behavior of a lot of us when we pray, especially when we are in a rush. How we run through the motions of sila as if it's some sort of athletics competition, up, down, left, right. And there's no tranquility, there's no composure. The idea of standing to each one of your limbs and your joints finds its place of comfort and normality, then bow and stay there until your limbs relax and your joints go back to their original position not to go up and down like the plucking of a rooster.
And that was the description of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he gave to the salah of the hypocrite.
May Allah protect us from this description? He says describing the prayer of a monastic a hypocrite he said karma for Nakara Kana karate de now you have called Allah have you in Ocarina, he gets up. He prays hurriedly, plucking at his prayer as if he is a rooster, and not remembering Allah Almighty in the Salah, except a little
praying hurriedly and going up and down like the plucking of a rooster. So if you don't act upon this, my brother my sister, your Salah is under threat Be careful, there is no rush when you are inside.
And that is why how they have done yeah, man, the Allahu Anhu the companion
when he came across another man who was described as La ut Moroka, Asada to Allah sudo da. He wasn't perfecting the bowing and the frustrating
how they thought about the Allah one who called him over, he's asked him a question he said, when we do come, what are the things on? How long have you been praying in this format?
He said one two are buying the center. I've been praying like this for 40 years now.
They said to him a mouse or later moved to Albarino Center. He said rather you haven't been praying for 40 years.
While muda Wahhabi he Salah took lemma Tala Halal fitrah sama Kabbalah Ali who are Lima who he said my brother,
if you were to die in this state, you would have died in a state that is contrary to the fitrah to the natural way of the Prophet sallallahu I names
then how they follow the Allahu Anhu
went to the van and he began to educate him.
So they he said to him, my brother, you haven't been praying for 40 years. And if you were to die in the state, you would have died upon a state that is other than the filter of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And one of the key issues of this man's prayer is that he's not doing it right now and he's not finding tranquility in the prayer. He's bowing them instantly he's getting back up but then he's prostrating and he's instantly sitting and then no sooner does he raised his head. He's frustrating again, this may render the salah invalid, be careful, my brother, my sister, and that is why
a lot I know has to be the companion when he saw the salah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had a very unique description of it. He said Romhack to flatten the reefs, Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, I observed the prayer of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam he sold the following. He said it's our job to look forward to piano who, for whom kua who fatty dalla who badda Rocco first Big Data who Virgil cetera who for such data who for gel setter who cobbler onion, sorry,
Perryman Mila Silla. I saw the prayer of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I saw that his standing and his bowing then his standing then his prostrating, then his city, then his prostrating were similar in duration.
So if you as it were to
ignore Roger Well, Hanbury and others have commented what this hadith means is that if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to prolong any aspect of the Sunnah, he would prolong every other aspect of the center. And if he shortened an aspect of the Salah, he would shorten every aspect of Masada. So some of us what we do, and inshallah there is no problem in doing this in principle, but it's not ideal. We're Institute and it's a long So dude,
with everything else of the Salah is very short and rapid.
The hadith suggests that if the Prophet alayhi salatu salam prolonged any aspect of his Salah he would prolong every other aspect. And if you shorten something you will shorten every aspect of the Salah. If you don't do this is not a huge issue. The key message here however, is what it means.
Don't be in a hurry when you bow when you raise when you prostrate, give each position it's do my brother, my sister.
So you are now in sujood. You're prostrating to Allah subhanaw taala. Last week, if you remember, we introduced the enormity of this position. We say this is the grand finale of Salah. And we said that everything that we have done and studied up until this point was simply a preparation for this moment to place your forehead to press your nose onto the ground in submission to Allah to Allah gelato
Institute in frustration, our Prophet alayhi salatu salam would firmly place his palms onto the ground
and his fingers would be facing the direction of the prayer that Qibla so he wouldn't do this. He would do this assuming the Qibla is this way.
And he would position his hands on the floor, parallel to his head
or parallel to his shoulder. There is a difference and all of this is acceptable insha Allah
and he would prostrate pressing his forehead along with his nose on the ground. Some people they will put their heads
but they will miss their nose and other people especially if they've done something nice with their hair, say before our wedding. He will place his nose onto the ground but he will miss the forehead. Yes, what you should do according to the majority of the scholars is that you should pray press your forehead along with your nose onto the ground where when frustrating.
And that is why Buhari generates on the authority of women who have baths that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said or mirror to us do the Allah said it. I have been instructed by Allah to prostrate upon seven parts of the body. What are the seven parts? He said algebra? What? Ashara Illa anfi Well your day you need work better you need a thorough feel a domain. He said the forehead and he pointed out his nose simultaneously.
The hadith said when he was enumerating the seven parts that he has to prostrate with. He said the forehead and he simultaneously pointed at his nose. So the scholars have said the forehead and the nose they are part of the face that should make contact with the ground.
When you prostrate that's one, they are together. He said on both of your hands, that's three and both of your knees that's five and the tips of your feet that seven.
So when you are prostrating the prophets Allah, Allah Allah has sent them is where he was to place his forehead and his nose onto the ground to Allah subhanho wa taala.
And he would also create a space between his size and his body, his abdomen. So when he is prostrating, he's not tucking his legs to his stomach as he prostrates keeping it all together. Rather, he would create a space between his thighs and his abdomen when prostrating and he will also create a second space this is between his arms and his body, so he wouldn't prostrate with his shoulders tucked in like this. And of course, this could be the way if you are praying next to other people and you need to create space, that's fine. But in principle, he would create quite a significant space like this almost when prostrating such that the whiteness of his blessed armpit
could be seen when he prostrate alayhi salatu salam, and such that if a small animal
wanted to pass between his body and his arm it could pass. So it must have been quite a significant space that he created when frustrating. And one of the thing that he would really discourage is the idea of resting your forehead, your forearms onto the ground when frustrating like this. Some people especially those who are perhaps new to the religion of Islam, when they begin to prostrate they are like this, and they placed their heads onto the ground and their forearms are completely level with the floor.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this shouldn't be our frustration. He said,
lie abou so to LUCAM Vera is in B flat and can be fistula label. So to Hulu comm Vera, I hate to say that in recital Kelby you should not place your forearms onto the ground the same way that the dogs rest their paws onto the ground. So the idea of raising your elbows from the ground when frustrating, and one of the wisdoms behind it and Allah knows best is to separate us from the behavior of animals who may resemble this type of position. Allah said, Well, I could call Ramana bunny and we have honored the son of Adam. So we differentiate ourselves from all things that are lowly, we are to raise our elbows in frustration.
And they're in sujood.
Our Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam would say Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhana RBL Allah three times meaning How perfect is my Lord, the Most High?
You can say it once minimally. Ideally you say three, that is whole, or you may recite it as much as you want above that Subhanallah Bill Allah Subhana Allah Allah depending on the issue that Allah has blessed you with, on that morning or that evening Subhana Raphael Allah. And look at the paradox here La Ilaha illa Allah, how every one of the remembrance is of Salah has been carefully positioned with wisdom,
in that position of Salah that will give you most growth and nourishment spiritually. So you are in solitude, at your very lowest point where you drop your highest, your forehead onto the lowest the ground. And as you are in that low and humbled state, you say
Allah Almighty is the most high
as if to say I acknowledge I am the most low
and Allah Jalla Jalla Allah who is an ally and Allah the Most High. So you say sort of Han or OBL Allah, glory be or how perfect is my Lord Allah, the Most High humbling reality La ilaha illAllah.
And their Institute is your opportunity to make your requests
you haven't now are unlocked for you.
Think of all of the burdens you need your anxieties, your worries, your requests your desires, from this world or the hereafter,
and send them up to Allah subhanaw taala through the envoys of the melodica the angels through dua, as you prostrate Subhana Allah
and they're in frustration. There are other dua that we are recommended to save
our prophets Allah Allah, Allah who sent them said
that when you are in sujood, you should say the following. So he's Muslim, he would say, Allahu McFeely Thembi Kula. Oh ALLAH forgive all of my sins, memorize it, the coho agenda, the small ones, and the huge ones were wonder who were Akira, and the first of my sins, the last of them wahala Nia who was era and the public sins, and the private ones. Forgive them all. Oh Allah subhanaw taala. You want to complete format of the heart
Drive. That is an ambitious dua. Don't leave a single one of my students Oh ALLAH till you erase it. Now you may say to me, brother Ali, what was the need for this type of elaboration?
Surely it is enough to say Allama philia can be cool. Oh ALLAH forgive all of my sins Colossus, yeah create this inner that covers the public and the private and the first and the last.
Why the elaboration
and one of the wisdoms behind it and Allah Almighty knows best is because this is the nature of what happens when you are interacting with someone whom you love.
When you share an intimate space with someone who is dear with you, you notice how you go on in intricate details, speaking for the sake of speaking, why because you are enjoying the warmth of the intimacy of that moment. You've all experienced it with someone who is dear to you and someone whom you love, a gathering that you simply don't want to end.
And that is similar to the Prophet of Allah Musa Alayhi Salatu was Salam, when he is speaking to Allah subhanaw taala and he is hearing the voice of Rama.
And Allah Almighty asked him the question and Allah knows the answer.
One Attila can be Yemeni, KR Musa. What is this in your hand? Oh Musa, what are you carrying in your right hand and Allah Almighty knows, what is the point? What was the response? What was the response of Prophet Musa? He said he I say it's my staff. It's my stick.
You could have stopped there. Question Answer.
He said, a delicate Walia. I sometimes lean on it. Well, who should be harder on me and I beat the leaves of the tree so that I can feed my animals with it.
And there it's almost as if he realized as he enjoyed the warmth of speaking to Allah subhanho wa Taala that he's going on in a little bit too much detail.
So he said wrapping, wrapping up and concluding li wali Fe Hana addabbo, Quran, I have other uses for the stick as well. As if to summarize. He's just realized I'm speaking to Allah, gender judo. And that's what happens when you're talking with someone whom you love. You don't want the conversation to end. So you speak and you give details and you elaborate. So here in the DUA, you say, oh, ALLAH forgive all of my sins dip for what you love, the small and the large. Well, what uh, who was the first and the last, while only there who was the public and the private,
such as the state of the movement, they believe that when he is besieging Allah in Nigeria
so this is one of the Dwyer that we are recommended to say when we are a frustration and I advise you to memorize the DUA that is found in the Quran and the Sunnah and also to spill out your heart and speak to Allah subhanho wa taala.
Then when you have finished your prostration
you now say Allahu Akbar. And you now sit up, this is your first sitting.
The setting that is found between are located between the two prostrations you say Allahu Akbar, and you sit up. And here the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam would sit on his left foot, you would lay it onto the ground, and sit on his left foot, and using his right foot, he would keep his balance and he would keep his right foot erect, and the toes would be pointing towards the table, curved and pointing towards the Qibla. That's one way of sitting. Another way of sitting is to stand on your heels, or I mean to say, to sit on your heels, between the two frustrations, and to bend your toes such that they are facing or they are pointing towards the cupola as well, these are two ways of
sitting between the prostrations.
And here our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say, What would you say?
What would he say here
are a bit fiddly, rub your feet fairly, my Lord, forgive me, my Lord, forgive me,
is asking from the forgiveness of Allah, And subhanAllah we've just come out from sujood. And sujood is a place of Doha requests. And now you are sitting up and you're still making requests from Allah subhanaw taala. And such as the ambition of the believer in his Lord.
You're asking the King who is rich, and who stores never deplete, and who loves you more when you ask of him, unlike man who loves you less the more you ask of him. So you're now standing up and you're saying, Oh, my Lord, forgive me, my Lord, forgive me. And when you say Allahu MacDuffie really you're asking for McAfee era forgiveness. Now Kira is from the three original letters of the word, which is the Roth IRA. Roth IRA is a verb which means to cover and also to protect. These are the two meanings to cover, and also to protect. And that's why in the Arabic language, the helmet which a fighter would wear on the battlefield is called an Arabic a middle Pharaoh, sharing the same
routes a metaphor because a
helmet has two functions, it covers your head.
It covers your head, so you don't know what is beneath the head in terms of hair color, etc. It covers the head. And the second function of the helmet is that it protects you from the harm of battle.
So you have the meaning of covering and the meaning of protection. So when you say Allahu McFeely or rub the fiddly my Lord forgive me Give me McAfee, you're essentially asking to have many things which is first of all, they are my sins. Don't disgrace me, Don't embarrass me. Don't make my weaknesses. Oh Allah public in this world, and don't make them all public on the Day of Judgement. Cover me. They owe me. Don't humiliate me. That's one of the things you're requesting. And you're also asking Allah for protection. Save me from the evil consequences of sins, that affects mental health. Mental well being affects finances, affects relationships, affects your grave affects your
dying moments affects everything. Forgive me protection from the consequences of sins as well.
So he would get up from his frustration saying Allahu Akbar.
And he would say, Robin fairly rubbish, really, there is a second dua Allahu Akbar era is so beautiful, where he would make several consecutive requests between the two prostrations he would say in this narration, memorize it. Allah hummock fiddly Oh ALLAH forgive me, What harmony and have mercy upon me, watch Bodoni and repair my breakage what a felony and raise my rank. We're howdini and guide me
where I Feeny and give me wellbeing what is opening and provide for me?
Allahu Akbar, who is able to respond to these huge and colossal objectives, requests other than Allah, Allah Annie, the most rich Subhan Allah.
So you have made this dua as you sit now you say Allahu Akbar and you go down for a second prostration notice you bowed once there was one little cord on your salah, in each unit of so that there was wondering why there is two Saturdays to show you the superiority of this position of this posture of this action of this unbelievable expression of humbleness before Allah subhanho wa Taala
you say Allahu Akbar and you go back down into servitude, as if to say one such there was not enough.
One frustration has not satiated my need to be near Allah agenda did I go I need a second one for contentment. So you say Allahu Akbar when you go back down into frustration a second time
and here after you finish your second Sajida you have essentially completed what you've completed one full unit of Salah
each or QA or unit of Salah looks like what we have just described. There is a clear there was a standing there was a narrowing or raising there was two frustrations and now you have completed one full unit. And you repeat that twice for selected failure four times for more Maghreb or Asia and ICER and three times for salatu McCarrick.
So notice La ilaha illAllah.
How every Rakhine every unit of Salah begins with what the recitation of the Quran and it ends with what
sujood prostration. Each rockhard begins with the Quran, recitation of Quran and to conclude with what such that frustration. Now look at the very first Surah given to our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is Surah two al
Allah Haluk surah Allah Allah, what is the very first verse
Accra recite? What is the very last verse Kela tutor who has good work that is the instruction to prostrate, so that will Allah begins with the recitation of the Quran the instruction and begins with the and ends with the instruction to prostrate and each raka of Salah begins with the recitation of the Quran and it ends with with sujood prostration.
All of it has come from the same law, the law, the law in the law, the designer of it all is one He is Allah subhanaw taala I heard.
Now that you have finished your second frustration, you continue your Salah, you repeat this process again till you get to your very first tissue out.
The shareholders of course, as you know, when you sit onto the ground,
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would place his left hand on his left knee or his thigh and he would place his right hand on his right knee or thigh. And he would create a circle form like this, grabbing onto his middle finger using
his thumb, and he would raise his index finger like this in the direction of this Qibla
a single expression of the unity of Allah that are heat of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is one form of others.
And all of the four schools of thought
the Shafia is the Maliki's the hand, Belize and the HANA fees are of the view that it is a sunnah it is recommended to engage in ishara to indicate with your index finger like this in Santa, then there is a bit of a difference of opinion as per what you do with this indication or do you move the finger or not? This is a long discussion that we don't really need for this particular series.
And Alhamdulillah there is scope to do more than one form as was understood by the scholars of Islam because there isn't a definitive a definite answer to this question. You see interpretation of our Sunni scholars when looking at the Hadith, in this particular discussion, so for example, the Hanafis they will say that the Sunnah here is you raise your finger just once when you say the negation
the Nephi when you say law, you raise it once then you drop it.
So you had to delay whatsoever to what point you back to Santa Monica. You had the VU Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh Sara Molina and I very much had one La Ilaha illa Allah, when you speak of the negation, there is no God.
You raise your finger when you say but Allah you drop it.
The shaft as they say, you raise your finger, when there is the affirmation that is that?
You say I shadow Allah Ilaha illa Allah, I testify that there is no God but Allah when you are affirming but Allah you raise your finger. This is their understanding.
The Maliki's they have the opinion that you move your finger side by side like this. This is one of the understandings of the movement of the finger in Sudan. One of the directions or one of the movements indicates the negation the other one negates the affirmation La Ilaha illa Allah like this.
The Hunnewell is in their motherhood it's the idea of raising your finger every time you Utter the Name of Allah Subhana Allah love Dolgellau Allah. So you have your hand dropped every time you come across the name of a lot you raise it at the hey yeah to Lin he was Salah to work on you better Sarah Malika you whenever you are off METU Baraka serum Allah, you know Allah, Allah his son, Chateau La Ilaha illa Allah wa shadow Nam Hamad and Rasulullah every time you come across his divine name, erase it. If this is confusing, don't be confused. And don't tell off your brother who is doing it in a different way to how you're doing it.
And if you are really perplexed by the situation and you don't know what to do, just follow the way of your method. Follow the where you have your shake your teacher, and if you don't have any of this to hand, you can simply keep your index finger raised for the entire duration of the t shirt like this.
For the sake of simplicity, just keep your finger raised like this for the entirety of both of your T shirts and this is one of the opinions of our scholars, especially some of our contemporaries is what
so you are interested in
and have to live not have that he was asked about the wisdom what is the meaning of this raising of the index finger in your tissue. And he thought he said that he can Eclass it is an indication of sincerity.
It is an indication and an announcement of your toe hate unifying Allah Almighty in worship he is one
and this is why it is so painful upon shaytan to see inside to see the believer with his finger raised like this, because it indicates the greatest of all realities you're to hate.
And what can he do with that?
And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who said that the future Hamid narrating his most speaking about the era The indicating with the finger he said that he should do either shaytaan the menial Hadid it causes greater injury meaning this indicating with the finger it causes greater injury to shape and then iron does.
And Munna Anahata he comments on this hadith and he says is now yet the Asaro is now hola esta Roble hottie Denia servito Hadith. He said it's not iron that causes injury to shape on. It is to heat that causes injury to shape and he's saying what the hadith is saying is that shape art is not affected by things that affects you and I.
What affects him is the sentimental meaning the value that is implicit in this indication, which is telehealth. That's what bothers him so much. It is more damaging and causes greater injury to shaytaan than iron does.
So this is something about the raising of the finger.
And here our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to say that the shout were you say adhere to the law, hey, let's take it sentence by sentence. Here to the law. All royal greetings belong to Allah. That's what you're seeing in your tissue out and a lot of you I believe, will be hearing this for the first time and Hamdulillah we are here to understand and learn, but it is key to unlock these meanings of something we do 10s of times a day and for years of our life.
You see here today now, all royal greetings belong to Allah. This is one of five understandings whenever we find one or five translations, but we will stick with this one for simplicity, it will suffice.
Here to explore all of the here, a royal greeting. What you are saying here is
every royal greeting that is offered to a government or a prince, Soufan, Emile King, Queen, whether in the UK, or in Japan, and emperor, whoever he or she may be all of these expressions of royal greeting and honor Talim they all belong to Allah, Allah subhanaw taala is worthy of them all.
And this is one of the meanings of the here Hirota Aleem, the glorification, the titles of glory that are given to people or things, Allah Almighty is the world use of them all.
You may offer a statement of me and so on, and so on. And so but in reality, they are nothing in the eyes of Allah,
Who is the one who deserves these descriptions, and they be fit him and he is a greater description as well that is Allah so you see, here to Linda, all royal greetings belong to Allah. Then you say well salah,
and all prayers they belong to Allah. What are you that an all pure speech and actions they belong to Allah adhere to the law he was allowed to work for you but
now that you have finished praising Allah subhanaw taala you turn to the individual who has the greatest right upon you in the life of this world, after Allah subhana wa Tada and he is Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you give him on a sleeve a share of your DUA.
You now see As Salam wa Lika you have Nibi What if not Allah you gotta get
oh Allah give peace and security to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and mercy
When you see a Salah Malik, you are saying, Oh Allah give him security, give him safety, free him from all harm. free him from all evil, save him, give him security, along with his message his religion, save it from all harm after his death.
And it is not something strange that we should remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a daily dua. Whilst he was the man who never forgot us in his dorm.
How many times did it happen when he was reduced to tears thinking about the welfare of Muslims, and longing to meet those Muslims whom he had never met those who come after him?
When he would go to the graveyards, and he would say, I wish that I had the opportunity, the opportunity to meet my brothers and the Companions would say, are we not your brothers? He said to them, you're my friends. He said My brothers are those who come after me. And they believe in me, though they have never seen me. So he thought about you. He prayed for you. In fact, he wept for you.
In the famous occasion when Angel Jibreel comes to the prophets Allah Allah Allah Sinha because he's crying in the middle of the night. And you really says to him, Allah is asking you and Allah knows best. Why he is crying, Allah asked you, why are you weeping? And he says, Almighty God Almighty, I'm worried about my nation. I worry about my nation. And Allah Almighty instructs Gibreel to tell the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yeah Muhammad Oh Muhammad in Sonora week if you are Merdeka Allah and so we're going to make you happy with respect to your OMA and we're not going to let you down.
Allahu Akbar. So the thought of you my brother, yeah, yeah, Ali Khalid, so on So sisters, who may have had the thought of your welfare, reduced into tears.
And every prophet and messenger had a dua that Allah Almighty gave him to make in the life of this world that would definitely be answered. And all of the Prophets and Messengers used that dua for a noble cause in the life of this world. With the exception to our Prophet, he said, I'm going to save this answer dua for the day of judgment to benefit my own man.
So is it too much to remember him in a daily dose? Allahu Akbar alayhi salatu salam he is desiring.
So you asked her for
Using Allah you turned to him. And you say a Salam O Allah, how are you handling your rahmatullah wa barakatu. May the peace be upon Allah may the peace be upon the Messenger of Allah and the mercy of Allah and blessings. Then when you finish with this, and by the way, I wish to say something here, no doubt that each and every one of us wishes, that he or she had the opportunity to offer this greeting the salam, and dua directly to the Blessed face of the Prophet Saracen. Is that not the case? Wouldn't it have been infinitely more satisfying to see his blessed face,
to enjoy his charming smile, and to serve him to carry the burdens off him and to kiss his hands and his forehead and to wipe away the soil from his blessed feet? And to say to him, I said, I'm Malika Are you hungry?
Peace and blessings be upon your messenger of Allah to do it in person.
Yeah, we would have loved that.
But we have been deprived of this opportunity in the life of this world for the wisdom of Allah has things that he knows that we don't.
So since that we have missed out on this opportunity, Let's not miss out on the second best opportunity, which is to give him Salam through this dua that I have just shared with you. And rest assured there is a promise for people who do this. The hadith which Abu Dawood the rates, with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who said, No, I mean, why didn't you send the Mali in? The Allahu Allah yo he had the other day, he said on any person who makes do art for salaam to me, Allah restores my soul to my body, so that I may respond in time.
So that I may respond in kind and make dua for him by name.
So you may doubt the outcome of your dua for one barrier or another one reason or another, but you cannot doubt that two out of the prophets Allah is in them. So always say Allahumma Salli, wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad, he will give a personalized response, Allah will give him permission. So you've missed out on the face to face and on. Don't miss out on the second best opportunity.
Then when you have praise Allah, and you have given Salam upon the prophets of Allah on your sin and what's left, what's left is yourself, and your brothers and sisters around you. So you conclude the DUA by saying As salam o Allah, you know, while I obey the law, he Salah May peace be upon us, and upon the righteous slaves of Allah subhanho wa taala.
They have a right upon you to
and then you conclude by saying a chateau La ilaha illallah wa shadow under Muhammad and Abdullah was testified that no one has the right to be worshipped but Allah may testify that Muhammad is leaving His messenger and that's the conclusion of your diet.
Then when you have concluded this, and you have continued your Salah, you now continue praying to you reach your final shout.
This will be your second one in Salah to Bihar, Orissa or Maghreb raesha and it will be the same one if it is scheduled. It's only the one when you get to your final Tasha hood, you recite what you just heard at the yard. And now there is a Salah al Ibrahimi upon the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and upon Ibrahim Alayhi Salam.
What would you say here?
You will say Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad, oh Allah honor Muhammad wa ala Ali Mohammed an honor the family of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam come out so later Allah Ibrahim Ali Ibrahim as you have honored Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim in NACA Hamidah Maji you are praised by the glorious and then you say Allahumma barik ala Muhammad wa ala Ali Muhammad Oh Allah bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad comma Doctor Allah Ibrahim Ali Ali Ibrahim as you have blessed Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim in a Hamid Imagine you are praiseworthy and Lori's
Why is it that you are making a dua for Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam of all the prophets Why him side by side with our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the DUA could have been Allahumma Salli Okemos or later Allah, there would, there would indica Homido Majeed, Oregon also later Allah Sulaiman Well, Ali Sulayman in Nikka, Hamidah Majeed why Ibrahim? One of the reasons is that Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, as you said, rather Keba that he is honey lie he is the close friend of Allah Jalla gelato
such that our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said shortly before he died, that if I had taken a clean a close friend from my own life, it would have been Abu Bakr
but Allah has taken me as a family as he has taken Ibrahim as a honey. So the greatest human being to come into existence after our Prophet Muhammad was awesome. He is Abraham
and it is his religion that Allah Almighty instructed us to follow the religion of Allah
any fear and Ibrahimi are the upright monotheistic well your Prophet Ibrahim. So it is apt that we include his name side by side with the name of the Prophet. So I said let me know Salawat another reason this was mentioned by
Ally II are one of the Hanafi scholars he gives another two reasons.
He said when the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was taken into the Maharaja journey taken into the heavens, and he met all of the prophets and messengers, and he spoke with them. The only prophet who made a special request to our Prophet Muhammad Salah said that he should give his greetings on his behalf to us was Prophet Ibrahim.
Prophet Ibrahim, he said to our Prophet Muhammad wa salam convey my Salaams to your own back. He's the only one who did that.
So in a similar kind, we respond to this favor. By remembering him as he remembered us in the heavens. We remember him here on the earth in a DUA, in every single one of our son as Subhanallah
has our son in the sun, Allah said, excellence should be rewarded with excellence.
A second reason which the sheikh mentions is that when Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam concluded his building of the Kaaba, he made a dua to Allah subhanho wa taala. And he said, Oh Allah, any person from the OMA of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who comes to this Masjid to pray, convey my salam to him on behalf of me, and on behalf of my family.
So we respond in a similar kind by remembering him in a DUA, and we send salutations upon our Prophet so I sent him on the Prophet of Allah Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam.
When you have finished this, you are now in a strong position to make dua.
This is one of the most likely times and places of all that dua will be accepted just before you conclude your Salah.
And that is why I tell me the new rates in his genre, but he messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked the question, Are you dua SMA, which dua is most likely to be answered? He said jofa Leyland
will do bouras Salawat et al Maktoum.
He said the most likely time and place where do i is answered, is in the latter hours of the night. And at the end of each one of the obligatory salah
the latter parts of the night, and in the concluding parts of every salah, you finished your salah upon the Prophet salallahu Salam, and for the Brahim alayhi salatu salam, there is now an opportunity to make dua.
And it makes sense that this is a place for dua, doesn't it?
I want you to imagine that you are now sharing a space with someone who is dear to you. And you engage in warm conversation together and you connect and you bond. And there was a sense of familiarity
and friendliness and understanding and joy.
When you finish that conversation, what do we use you to say to this person just before we love them and leave them we say what do we say?
Your anything you need?
Is there anything I can do for you? Can I assist you help you anyway? Let me know.
And similarly here in Santa, you have spent a few minutes glorifying your Lord bonding with him, glorifying him praising him. Do you think this will go without gratitude from Allah Sure. Cool.
So it's almost as if you are being told now that the salah you're bidding it farewell. Your Lord wishes to say to you, is there anything I can do for you? Just before you go, just before you conclude with Salam is there anything you need from this world or the hereafter ask? What can I do for you?
So now there is the space or the opportunity for Doha, and our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this position, he would make a bandhan DUA
and some of the DUA he would say was as follows memorize some of these if you can or look them up.
Muslim the rates on your authority of Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us to say at the end of each prayer the following words Allahumma inni I will be coming either Abuja Hanim Oh Allah I seek refuge in You from the punishment of Hell. Woman will cover and from the punishment of the grave will mean fitna thing Maya will mama and from the tests of this life and the hereafter death. woman shall refit nuttin mercy hydrogel and I seek refuge in You from the evil fitna trials of Mercy hydrogel the Antichrist
Every one of your Salah dish should be included before you before you conclude yourself.
Another dua we are recommended to make as Bukhari generates. And this dua was taught by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam to the greatest of this Omaha after its profitable vacuum, he said to him, you should say the following words Allahumma inni LOM to an FCM Holman. Kathira Oh Allah I have wronged myself, and abundant longing, whether I have a feud with the Nova India and nobody can forgive sins, but you fulfill the Hmong FIRA Tamina Hendrik so give me a forgiveness that is from you. What haven't you have mercy upon me in Atlanta la foto Rahim you are the Forgiving and Merciful.
And the third dua This is another beautiful one Subhan Allah which in the set up rate,
that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will say the following words yeah Allah He would say Allah who maybe only mica arrived Oh Allah I asked you by your knowledge of the Unseen
work with erotica alcohol and I asked you by your ability over creation
a Hema elemental higher to higher Lee give me life so long as you know that life is good for me. What they were funny either unlimited without the hydralie but cause me to die. If you know that death is better for me
was a joke. Allahumma has sciatica baby was Shahada. And I asked you Oh ALLAH for fear of you, the public and private matters.
What is a look at Kelly metal hockey field with our club and ask you to inspire me to speak the truth when I am contented when I am angry? was a local coffee factory wondering. And I asked you for moderation. You're in times of poverty and affluence was alakina I am a lion fan. And I ask you for a delight that never ends. Well as Luca Kurata is in Latin copper. And I asked you for a joy that persists was a local riddle about Alcoa and I asked you to give me contentment with all of your decrees what? Luca BARDELLA up battle mode. And I asked you for the coolness of life after death. Well as I look at that another illogic and I asked you for the sweetness of looking at your face was
Shoka Illallah IK and I asked you for the longing to meet you feel hungry about raw Motorola fitness in mobila a longing to meet you Oh ALLAH that is not caused by pain or misguiding fitna that causes me to wish for death.
Allah who has a you know Buzina to EMA and Oh ALLAH decorate us with the beauty the adornment of faith, which I know who they are attend more Teddy and make us people who are guided and guiding to others what a dua in the law and what a way to conclude your Salah commit this to memory Dear brothers and sisters as one of your missions before the end of this week inshallah.
So, now that you have concluded your Doha
you're now going to finish your Salah. And the way that you finish your Salah, of course is by saying a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah turning to your right and as salaam aleikum, wa Rahmatullah turning to your left, this is one of the format's of ending your prayer.
And hear your intention should be several things. The first is that you are giving salaam greeting to those angels who have been part of your life since the day you were born.
Since the day you came into existence, there were two angels from many who are appointed one to your right, documenting your good deeds within a book and want to your left documenting your every sin within a book. Today they are unseen on the Day of Judgment when they put those books together, they will present them to you you will read your life script that you had been altering today and you will meet those angels for the first time in your life and you will put name to face and face today.
So they have a right to be greeted. They're part of your journey in this world and part of your journey in the hereafter to you we you and I arrive at Paradise or hell God forbid. So you say a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah but you are also giving salam and greeting to your brothers and sisters who are around you, because they have a right
for the duration of the Salah. You have ascended to enormous heights.
You have disconnected from the life of this world. And you are communicating with Malika Rahman, the king, Allah subhanho wa taala. Now is the time to transition back to reality.
To transition back to dunya.
And to recognize that there are brothers around you sisters around you, my sister who have been sharing this sacred space with you
so you say As salam aleikum, greeting them all to reaffirm your bond, reaffirm your brotherhood and sisterhood to acknowledge them. And therefore it doesn't mean
extense that you say As salam Aleykum Selam Aleykum you are making dua that Allah should give them peace. But then in your heart you're still harboring a fallout with him or her.
In the same Masjid brothers saying, Salam Aleykum Selam Aleykum but they're not talking to one another. It doesn't make sense. It's a paradox Naxi Moreover, they don't fit with one another.
So when you say uh, Salam aleikum, wa Rahmatullah salaam aleikum, wa Rahmatullah beware of hypocrisy it. Beware of being two faced in this say it from the depths of your heart, you mean it?
