We've done our will do.
We've chosen the appropriate attire. Right? For salah.
And then we've come to the masjid. We've understood the position for men in
the stands for women with respect to Salah in the masjid.
Now we speak about another aspect, which is the what do you think we're going to talk about now? The
what is left before the salah begins.
Did you say something? The
the place of prayer law, something else. Something you heard today, you know the other than the call to the prayer.
Another aspect of the Salah
that is massively under appreciated
a huge underdog when it comes to the race for people's attention.
And that's a gross miscalculation when you see people competing to be the Imam, the leader of the congregation, but no one seems to compete to be the other than and that is a gross miscalculation and that is a gross misunderstanding than the call to the prayer is not just an announcement that Salah has come
it is more than that. When was the last time you experienced the joys of Adam and you unlock the reward of Advan but you see what is sad is that a lot of brothers Subhanallah they come too late they're coming to the masjid such that they will miss the event and just about making the karma.
So a year two years may pass by and they will not hear the event in person perhaps only on Friday.
Because he will time he's coming to the masjid he will not say what time is and he will say what time is a farmer
Phil is not around so you will not hear the man and repeat after them love them. This is an opportunity that has been missed out upon missed out on the other.
What do we know about the event?
First of all what we know is that shaytaan despises the other he hates it
it causes him a very negative reaction.
And that is why the Prophet sallallahu I think he was sent them he said
he there are new the new Salah at
the bar I'll show you around who Allah Who do rotten had to Allah is not the
when the Adhan happens the call to the prayer shaytaan flees the scene and he passes wind so that he doesn't hear the event so Han Allah what a corrupt being. He passes wind so that he doesn't hear the name of Allah being glorified it bothers him
for either a holder yet that the you know,
Taco Bell, when the other end finishes shaitan comes back.
For either Sue we value solidarity at bar, then when the armor happens, the second call to the prayer to announce that the Salah is about to start. He runs for either coldly at death weaboo Aquaman and when the economy finishes, he comes back to join the prayer, but not to do so now of course.
Forever Lu us we sue banal Marie UNFCC here Kudo. Cada Gorka Bhima la mia Cooney, Kuruman Kabelo of Allah Raju Allah did he comes on?
He said Satan then begins to whisper to those who are praying and he says, Remember this, recall that remember this. Recall that till he leaves a person in a situation, not knowing how much he prayed. So shaytaan hates the other end, that in itself should pique our interest. He hates it why that is understand the adhan, there is a dimension that perhaps we are missing out on. Therefore, when the event happens, it's not just white noise.
It's not just an old dunmow An old uncle screaming at the top of his voice, and you're talking to your friend or you're scrolling through your phone. No, hold on a minute, pause, absorb what is happening. Allah's name is being glorified, Salah is being announced. What is happening?
First of all, there is a huge bounty associated with those who are courageous enough to give the other
and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that and once they know you have a ruler who will be most useful to hear the one who gives a damn will have his sins forgiven because of the voice that he raises.
While you're sad do oh who Kuhlman Semia whom in the meanwhile this and everything that hears his sound, whether it is moist or dry, meaning all creation will confirm we repeat after him.
And listen to this third one. He says, Well, yeah, who
are you? Man, Saldana aku and he will be given the reward of everyone who takes part in that salah. Subhanallah so how many people do
We have here with our sisters 250 300 people.
So the brother who gave the Advan today he enjoys the salah of 300 people.
Now you will say to yourself like that in Allah, I mean, come on, realistically speaking, I'm not going to give the other
you can you can spice it up as much as you want, but I highly I'm not going to give the other. Right. I know my voice. And I know my confidence. And I know what the uncle is going to say if I put my foot forward and you will give yourself all sorts of
excuses. By the way. I am also terrified for the Iran I'm sorry to say that and that's because of a bad experience I had as a as a kid I remember
in Arabic school in those Saturday classes. And somebody asked me to give the dad maybe just 3040 of us and okay when I was a Shia he Sunni Iran it was just all over the place saying everything wrong. People were correcting me and I just got nervous. And I wasn't even that Oh, you're not young, like I think I was 16 or 17. So one of the brothers had already you sit down and then a kid came up and he gave me the other and I never got over that situation. Till this day, I will avoid the event even if it's just at home with three or four people I will say no Aveda Hugo give the other no you give the other
but if I'm giving a lecture so 20,000 people no problem in Leeds we had lighter moonlight mashallah 15,000 people, no problem. You know, it's it's just the number with the advantage becomes an issue. So don't fall into my problem here. Right? you challenge yourself, especially if you haven't hit the age of 30. You're still growing. Right? Challenge yourself.
So there is a Raha there is a fear to it. But there was also a reward. He said he will be given the reward of everyone who prays with him.
So we were saying, you will say I'm not going to give you the other. So what is in it for me?
I take you Subhanallah to the hadith of Maha Weah that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said men semi Allah Allah Allah for Karla Mithila Maya who fella who means to RGV whoever hears the Adhan and repeats after the Adhan will be given the same reward as them will
be given the same reward as the one who gave the other. So imagine you are in Makkah, you're praying in the Haram there's 100,000 People mashallah around the cabin doing salah, and then then what other than says, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And you repeat after him, the more than gets all of the idea of 100,000 people, and you get a copy of that as well, because you repeat it after them while they're.
So when it happens, sinus dobro, the next Tuesday, just a moment, listen to the other hand, and repeat after him in a conscious and intentional manner, and take the opportunity that Allah has given you
a brief history of event and we will stop here in Charlotte in the next three or four minutes.
A Brief History of the tertiary ID legislation and then what is the story behind that and, and how did it become part of the religion?
I then was introduced into our religion in year one after the hijab to the city of Medina Subhan Allah so as soon as they arrived at the city of Medina, within a few weeks, perhaps Allah Almighty had legislated the other hand, it is that central to our religion.
How did it start? Well,
our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had not been given any information from Allah Almighty yet about how to call the people to Salah. We were praying five times a day.
But there was no specific divine instruction about how to go about calling people analysing the salah.
And this bothered the Prophet Muhammad Ali who salatu salam. So some people they said, why don't we hoist the flag for each salah.
When it's time for the harasser to Madrid we put a flag and people see it and they they come to Salah prophets of Allah Allah who has sent him he didn't like the idea.
One of the companions said, How about we use the Shabbat? The horn that the Jews blow into to call for Salah we can copy them, prophets on Allah on using them didn't like the idea. He said this is the matter of the Jews is not us.
Somebody said why don't we introduce a Knackles a church bell. We can also bring a bell for our salah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't like this idea. He said this is the matter of the Christians. It's not ours.
And there was no answer.
And one of those people who were bothered by this was a man by the name of Abdullah. He'd been his aid.
If you have the lobby, Abdullah Hussein
and he fell asleep that evening in the state of
an ease now
anxiety about the situation?
So he saw a dream.
And in the dream he saw a man carrying a bell and now course
and he said to him, excuse me, will you sell me your belt?
And the man said, for what purpose? He said so that we can use it to invite people for Salah. She said, Shall I tell you of something that is better than the bell? He said, Yes. He said to him, repeat after me.
Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, which had one that you know, in Allah Shawanda Illa in Allah, which had to under Mohammad Rasool Allah, a shadow under Muhammadan rasul Allah. Hi Jana sada Hi Jana sadhana Highland Fela Hayyan and Fela, Allah Hua Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Now.
Then the man disappeared for a moment. All of this is still in the dream. And then he came back, he said, and when the time for ihana happens, just before the prayer begins, repeat after me. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Allah Ilaha illa Allah, a shadow under Muhammad and Rasulullah Hi yah Allah salah. Hi yah, AlFalah cardio cardio cardio karma to Salah Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah EDA in NAMA, Abdullah, Hebrews eight Volca.
And he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and by the way, one of the signs of a true dream is that you remember its ins and outs. You wake up and it is vivid.
He went to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam, and he said, O Messenger of Allah, I, I saw this dream.
And the Prophet said to him in a hallelujah Ha, it is a true dream. It is from Allah.
So go to Bilal, teach him the words that you saw, tell him to go and give the other one because his voice is more beautiful than yours. Had that been anyone else? He would have said, Oh, hold on a minute. That's my dream. This is my property, my intellectual property, right. And we would have gotten upset and fought over it that companions weren't like that. Was that about who's at the front and who's at the back and who was appearing and cutting the red ribbon and who's introducing the project. This wasn't their issue. He said, Go to Bilal and teach him what you saw, and he will give you the adhan, because his voice is the inner one does that mean his voice is better than yours? And
subhanAllah as His conversation was happening, Muhammad Ali Allahu Anhu comes out of his own your jewelry that he's dragging his clothes all over the floor. He has just about enough time to cover himself he's so happy. And he said O Messenger of Allah, I swear by Allah I saw the exact same dream last night, Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said for the lion hunt all praises due to Allah subhana wa Tada.
This is the story of Adhan and how it was introduced into our religion. Of course, it wasn't the dream that brought it into the religion. We all see dreams. What made it part of their religion was the confirmation of the prophets of Allah, Allah will send them through ye through revelation that brought it into their religion. I hope this point is clear. As for the details of the adhan, and what these statements they mean, why they are ordered the way they are, inshallah we will cover this next week if Allah gives us life until then,
we'll Salalah interview now Mohammed will help you
