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

middle path radio, your source of Islamic knowledge is not a friend of the shaman hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen or salat wa salam ala nabina Muhammad

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

I'm about salaam aleikum wa mercato.

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

Welcome, dear brothers and sisters, this is the final episode to the course how to focus in your salon is a lot to get through Sharla we'll get to the end of the salon today.

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

ask Allah geological Baraka in this in this status and to give us the future as well to try and give it its due right in this short amount of time that we have mineral banana mean.

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

Okay, to begin,

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

I wanted to share with you something a mama has earlier rahimullah said in his book and he said that the Salah is the key to the hearts, and it is the way a lot keeps the heart of creation linked to him.

00:00:59--> 00:01:00

But then he said

00:01:01--> 00:01:10

that the impact this law has on your heart is proportional to the amount of meaning you have uncovered of the words of Salah.

00:01:11--> 00:01:16

Therefore, he said, a person should. In fact, he said therefore

00:01:18--> 00:01:30

that knowing the meanings is the right of the color of the salon and the right of the authority. So meaning it is the right of the words of the prayer that you understand what they mean.

00:01:32--> 00:01:49

Therefore, he said, a person should slow down when he stands in salah and recite these words in order to contemplate over them. Now you think about that is actually a very practical piece of advice. Because we're gonna study the meanings of the words and there's a lot to take in.

00:01:51--> 00:02:30

Even though you may have studied all of them, and I could ask your questions, you could answer them The fact is when you stand in Salah, you still may not get anything. And the reason being is because you're praying too fast. That's basically what it is. You are speaking or you're speedily rushing through the salon saying the word so quickly that even though if you knew what they meant meant, you wouldn't be able to contemplate over it. So his first point of benefit is you may know the meanings, but you need to slow down your recitation and your camera in order to reflect over those meanings. And he brought this story generation about Ibrahim Munna Hari, Rama Hari passed away in 96. He one

00:02:30--> 00:02:50

of the early Muslims, he says that when he used to stand for salah and he's reciting the Quran, when he would come across certain verses, he was slow down, for example, if you would if he was to recite muttahida law who mean well as you can I mean, one man can America will mean

00:02:53--> 00:03:14

that there is a law has not taken a son. No. Is there any day t in this world worthy of being worshipped alongside him when he would say something like that? He would, he would lower his voice in recitation. And they said this was because he felt shy to say certain words that were not befitting of Allah.

00:03:15--> 00:03:34

Because it's not right there's some people say that Allah has taken the sun and it's not right. There's some people say there's other things out there that deserve to be worshipped. So when he would say the media Salah, even though it's part of the Quran, he would lower his recitation. And that shows you that as he was reciting, he was reflecting over what he was reciting. Otherwise it would be impossible to do something like this.

00:03:35--> 00:03:44

And then he said, that a person should be feel embarrassed, that he stands in front of a law, and his heart is concerned about everything except a law.

00:03:45--> 00:03:54

And then he's got he mentioned that happy for the person sort of the process and said, law is Allahu mobila novolog de

00:03:55--> 00:04:42

la manorbier defeats that the process of said that Allah He turns to the slave when he stands in prayer, and continues to be like that, up until the slave himself turns away from Allah. Can you imagine that the King of kings, the one who is taking care of the whole universe, he pays attention to you when you stand in front of him to pray, and his attention to you last as long as your attention to him loss. Think about that for a moment. They said about our brokenness, at least when he would stand in Salah he would become like a peg, you don't peg that you hit into the ground to keep the tent standing. They said he became like that, what does that mean? It means that when you

00:04:42--> 00:04:46

saw him in Salah, he would stand still as if he was stone.

00:04:48--> 00:04:51

dead serious and tall focused.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

I can imagine that this is the way that the early Muslims pray. There's a lot. Now there's a reality check. We need to take him and that is

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

Whoa, sure, and your slot will go up and down.

00:05:04--> 00:05:29

And it's impossible for a person to maintain that level of concentration all the time. It goes without saying it's not going to happen. However, you need something in your mind to focus your thoughts on. Otherwise your mind's gonna go, everyplace? What is it that's going to keep you focused? Knowing the meanings of the words, because as you say them with your tongue,

00:05:30--> 00:06:12

the meanings will start to enter into your heart. When they do, you will start to realize that you are in a conversation with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Okay, this is why it's very important. So one of the lessons we learned last week, is that your experience in the Salah is proportional to your understanding of the salon. The more you understand of the salon, the more you will experience the salon even there's a hadith the person said, that laserline abdomen sala de la casa minha that the slave will only get from the prayer as much as he understood. Yes, this is a hadith and Chef, another human Lhasa, this hadith is a heap. So okay, so we have got to the words, when you go into

00:06:12--> 00:06:14

the court, what do you say when you go into court?

00:06:17--> 00:06:18

somehow not a deal.

00:06:21--> 00:06:30

So I just want to recap what we've done so far, very quickly. So you stand in the center. And what you should be saying to yourself is you know what, a lot you are more important than anything else in my life.

00:06:32--> 00:06:43

So you say words to that effect? What are words to that effect? Allahu Allah, you are greater than everything else in my life, you are the most important one. And then you begin to praise Allah.

00:06:44--> 00:06:59

You say words of praise the opening to our supersonic law whom we will be handing, what about a customer? What are our jeddak whether ilaha hirooki praise a lot, you showing a lot that you are the most important thing in the world to me, then you're aware of the danger or who

00:07:01--> 00:07:13

ship on shutdowns gonna come for you now, because you decided to do a very good thing. out of concern of shavon you need the help of Allah. So what do you say in order to get the help of Allah?

00:07:15--> 00:07:36

Allah human Shivaji, do you see how beautifully it flows? Then you ask Allah to give you safety. And so Allah, if you set it with conviction, will prevent the shaitan from coming in whispering to you. Now the salon is all yours. But to give a perfect Salah who's helped Do you need a loss? So what do you say in order to get that help?

00:07:38--> 00:08:21

Very good. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in your name, meaning with your assistance and your help, will I end up having a special prayer. Okay, and then you begin to recite Surah Fatiha. Now, usually, if you had more time, I'd go through the defeat of certain criteria, because it is probably the most important part of the slot that you need to know the meaning of but because of time, I would have to tell you to go online because last year, we actually did the Tafseer of sort of 30. In this method, quite a detailed one. If you were to go on YouTube and type my name and sort of how you'll you'll see what we've done in Sharla and you can study that in your own time. So from now we have entered

00:08:21--> 00:08:25

into record. What do we say record we say soprano bill.

00:08:27--> 00:08:39

Now the words of hand, what do we say meant? It meant to declare that a lot is flawless? Yeah, one of the interesting things about the word Superman is that it comes from the root of

00:08:41--> 00:09:04

the Arabs, they derived another word from this root suburb, and it means to float was the connection between being perfect and floating. They said when you float, you rise above everything else. In the same way the one who is perfect, he rises above all imperfections. So why not be allowed him so he says Han? Who is

00:09:05--> 00:09:09

my master, or be allowed him who is described as being

00:09:10--> 00:09:44

the word of him it touches on the attributes of a law, like the greatness of a law, the highness of a law and the honorable nature of a larger law. His greatness, His Highness and his honor. That is why the word ultrabeat Okay, is not as superior as the word allow them allow him is more than an COVID because they said the one who is could be the great one. He may not be the one who is the highest. So the alim encapsulates greatness, highness as well as honor.

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

So this name, the way you describe the law is a name that talks about a lost power and his greatness. scholars are connected between the posture of record and the words that you are saying and record they said, think about

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

This, when you go into the core, you are in a position where your body becomes weak. If a child was run and fall into you, when you enter court, you'd easily fall over. Okay? Some people, they find it difficult to keep balance in record. Have you seen this? Sometimes people stop falling backwards, okay?

00:10:20--> 00:10:22

maybe thinking about other things as well.

00:10:23--> 00:11:08

But it happens because that position is a position of weakness. So in that position of weakness, what do you say about Allah? He said a lot. You are an athlete, you are the strongest, you have the highest. And in a position of record, the person is also in a lowly position, isn't it? You know, lowly position, but you say it about a law that you are Suppan, that you are above everyone else. So the words subpanel have been out in the defeating of the posture. They will play Ramallah. He said, You know, when you go into court, and so Dude, what should you think about? He said, You should think about the greatness of a law. And the significance of yourself, this is what you should be

00:11:08--> 00:11:34

thinking about. Every time you say three times, by the way, say three times, five times seven times 10 times, okay. Every time you say you should think about how insignificant you are, how great a lot is that I just want to share something with you to help you appreciate this point. I remember, I think it was two years ago, I read an article in the BBC, that on the fifth of November 1977, NASA sent out a

00:11:36--> 00:11:41

a spacecraft on a mission to study Jupiter and Saturn.

00:11:42--> 00:12:11

After 35 years, not only did it pass beyond Jupiter and Saturn, but it ended up going beyond the outer limits of our solar system. Okay, this is 35 years after the mission began. At that moment, when it went past the outer limit of our solar system, it became the furthest human built object in space, and it moved into outer space, the space between stars,

00:12:12--> 00:12:39

they said now, that object is so far away from Earth, that it takes 17 hours to send a radio signal 17 hours and they said though, it took some 40 years to reach that point of the outer limit of our solar system, it will take another 40,000 years until it reaches the closest star and it is traveling at a speed of 100,000 miles per hour alone.

00:12:40--> 00:13:31

Think about how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of the creation. What then about the creator? how insignificant are we in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala as in, in the in the context of Allah we on less than nothing? So when you think about this, think about it in your report and you still do. So how long are the there are other words that person can say so both from producer Obama to Super unintelligible to America, he will Kibriya he will say these things, go home and memorize them. Okay? Because one of the tips I'm going to share this with you now, in trying to keep the focus in Salah is to memorize the different wordings. Does anyone remember how many different

00:13:31--> 00:13:35

types of opening supplication? They are in the salon? I mentioned it last week?

00:13:37--> 00:13:38

Not three who said 10?

00:13:40--> 00:13:43

Yes, very good. Mashallah. That was a good night in the house.

00:13:45--> 00:14:28

Yes, 1010 different supplications that the person used to make when he used to open the salon. Now you see if you memorize all 10 of them, or even some of them, when you start one salon, you say you know what, actually, I'll say this one instead of that one. Even that moment, there would be a moment where you are engaging with the words of the salon, or we are moment to make you focus in that the shadowed we will do we will learn that there are actually five different types of the chef with wordings five, okay. And each one of them is named after a companion. So another task Another good tip for you is to go home and try to memorize as many of them as possible and in your salon you

00:14:28--> 00:14:33

should change. Yeah, sometimes this and sometimes this and this will help you keep your focus.

00:14:35--> 00:14:51

So if all of a sudden he said when a person stands up from things that cannot be of him three times, his heart should feel a sense of hope that I just praised Allah. And Allah must have heard me

00:14:52--> 00:14:58

and hoping that if he heard you, he would respond to you. So what do you say when you stand up?

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

Semi Allahu leemon hamidah you said, Allah heard the one who praised him who just praised him? You just did. You just praise them. And you said, Send me a long one even hamidah By the way, there's four ways you can say this the first way.

00:15:20--> 00:15:52

So you know this, the next wording is for 370 a lot. And what does it mean? It means not just Allah heard, but Allah will respond to the one who praises him. Not only is he listening, but he is there waiting to respond to what you want. And then you say, a banner, like enhance a long model banner. And luckily, this is the first way a long model banner while I can hunt the second way Allahumma banner, like, anyone spot the difference?

00:15:58--> 00:16:17

The wall is a long model, banner luckyland Allahumma. Banner, luckily, there are two, then you get rid of the mahama. And you say a little banner when a can opener. Like I'll hand again, four different ways all of them come from the process seldom change between them.

00:16:18--> 00:16:23

So you say open up my master. Yeah. Luckily,

00:16:24--> 00:16:37

it is only for you. You are the only one who deserves all praise and thanks. This is what you are saying when you stand up. And then you go into your suit. What do you say when you go into suit?

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

suit panel bill?

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

Yes.

00:16:44--> 00:16:53

So how not to be an airline. Again, you declare the perfection of Allah. But this time instead of saying allow them, you say my master is what

00:16:54--> 00:16:57

Allah, Allah, Allah means the highest.

00:16:58--> 00:17:33

Here, Mr. Mosley said something amazing. He said, think about this. He said this posture is the lowest possible posture a human being can make to an anyone else. And he said in that moment, the slave shows the ultimate form of humility to Allah. And he said his face if he was praying outside his face down on the ground, which is soil and dirt. And this should serve as a reminder that this is where I'm going to end up one day.

00:17:34--> 00:17:39

And this should serve as a reminder that me, I came from Toronto.

00:17:41--> 00:17:43

And now I am facing a Torah.

00:17:44--> 00:18:01

And then he said that this should make a person break his heart before Allah and remove all arrogance and pride from him. This is the power this posture should have. And and he then he said, does not look at what the posture makes you do and makes you take the most

00:18:03--> 00:18:09

looked after part of the body and put it on the lowest part of the Earth

00:18:10--> 00:18:17

is the face. The face is the part of the body that people look up to the most people don't put makeup on the elbows as far as I know.

00:18:18--> 00:18:45

Okay, the face is the pride and the joy of the person. You take that and you put it on the floor for the sake of Allah. This is what you call humidity. Hiram, Botswana, we did a exhibition for non Muslims in this Leighton and there was this young white guy. He was a teacher. He came inside the machine and I said, shall I give you a tour of the mosque? He said yes. So I took him upstairs in the masala area. There was no one there.

00:18:47--> 00:19:07

And he was just standing there amazed. Quiet peaceful. I said, this is where we pray. He said, What do you do? I said, Okay, so I started to pray just the justice that I went into salute. And then he said, Can I do it? I said, Yeah, go ahead. He went into sudduth. And he wouldn't come up.

00:19:09--> 00:19:53

Really, he took a long time. And when he came up, he said, You know what, that's the best feeling I've ever felt in my life. That's the best feeling I've ever felt in my life. That's exactly what you said. And that's also part of we don't reflect about the wisdom of the postures of the salon is designed to make you feel a particular way. But yet we also heatless sometimes we say so parent or being in the position of ultimate lowness, do you declare the highness of Allah subhanaw taala You are the lowest position and what do you say Subhana Allah, Allah highest. Now if you were to prostrate to any other person in this world, you would have humiliated yourself to not but the one

00:19:53--> 00:19:58

who prostrate himself to Allah only raises himself. The person said in an authentic hadith

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

That

00:20:02--> 00:20:24

natella Hayden lilla he in law law, he said no person ever humbles himself before Allah except that Allah elevates his person. This is the son of Allah, whoever humiliate themselves not humiliate, sorry, humbled themselves before Allah. Allah takes this person's answer, and he raises it.

00:20:25--> 00:20:45

And who is the one who has the most answer in this world? It is our leader, the prophets of Allah. What a foreigner look at the Quran, Allah has raised his honor, because he was the one he used to humble himself most towards Allah Subhana Allah May Allah make us humble towards him, I mean, then the other words you can see inside this position

00:20:47--> 00:20:51

you have them here you can say for example, a lamp

00:20:52--> 00:20:54

see there's a few different ones

00:20:57--> 00:21:03

adequately Han inshallah you can see them in the notes. The next part is that the shepherd?

00:21:04--> 00:21:13

This the Shahada, I want to make a few points before I go into it. First of all, it is unfortunate that this is the least well known part of the slot.

00:21:14--> 00:21:15

If I was to ask you,

00:21:16--> 00:21:17

why is it called a shovel?

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

Would you be able to give me an answer?

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

Why Why is it called the shovel?

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

Very good.

00:21:36--> 00:21:50

Very simple to work with, because you say the Shahada, a shadow law, you know the law, a shadow under Mohammed Abdullah surah because you take the proclamation of faith in that position, and that is why it's called to Sherwood.

00:21:51--> 00:22:08

But unfortunately, not a lot not a lot is known about this position. Moreover, not a lot is known about the words that you say in this position. For example, did you know that there are five different wordings of the disjunct and each one of them was taught to a different companions. So we say that the shareholder

00:22:09--> 00:22:22

or the shareholder or the shareholder, there, there are five different different wordings. The one that we think is most common is the following additional year to the law you're Salatu was

00:22:23--> 00:22:36

salam, Radhika AAUW, Allahu Akbar to Marlena awada arriba de la sala hain, a shadow in Allah wa shadow Mohammedan, Abu basura.

00:22:37--> 00:22:58

This is the shadow of Islam is out. And he was rude. He said that the province had a long war. It taught me that the Shah hood, like he taught me the Quran. He took my hand between his two hands, and he taught me these words adhere to the law, he was allowed to open a bottle.

00:22:59--> 00:23:05

And then so he said that he taught it to his students, Alabama,

00:23:06--> 00:23:44

and Alabama. He taught it to him in the same way, taking his hand between his hands. And the outcome. I taught it to his students, Ibrahim and nihari, in the same way, taking his hand between his hands, and Ibrahim and he taught it to Hamad his students. And her mom taught it to Abu hanifa Rahim Allah ultramarine, in the same way very beautiful. And even to today, if you were to learn that the Shahada from a Muhammad this, he would do it in the same way. You place your hands in between his hands, and He will teach you the words that you would memorize. And he will say the chain all the way back to Mr. Massoud who will take you back to the profits of the libretto said,

00:23:44--> 00:23:58

look at our tradition, unbelievable. The words you say in your prayer, go back to the process seldom even to the extent of the gesture he made when teaching it. This is from the beauty of Islam, she cannot find this in any other religion. Yeah.

00:23:59--> 00:24:02

This is what you call a true religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:24:04--> 00:24:16

Okay, so, these are the words the first word is a word which is a bit difficult to understand. here to learn the word attached yet comes from the root of higher what is higher mean

00:24:17--> 00:24:43

life now before Islam pre Islamic times, an operation they would say a greeting towards each other, they would say hi Yah, kala. Kala means May you be given a long life. Yeah, may you be given a long life. This is the type of greeting they would give. So, originally hierarchal law, greetings and life had this connection. you greet someone you asked a lot to give them life

00:24:45--> 00:24:45

to live.

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

You can't say you give greetings to Allah, can you? You can't greet or you can't say Salaam to Allah for Allah Islam. So what does it mean exactly. Now one of the scholars of the law allegedly of the law

00:25:00--> 00:25:36

Add in the time we managed carefully, he went out trying to find out the exact meaning of attention to the law. He went to one scholar who said, it means May the blessings of blessings of Allah, another scholar said, the mercy of Allah. But he was not satisfied. Because he said, You say adhere to the law, he was salewa to what are you that here? And these words, they kind of have that meaning already? So he went to Amanda sheffy. And he said, I've already asked other people about this, but I'm not being satisfied.

00:25:37--> 00:26:18

What is the meaning of adhere to the law? Even a chef, he said, Why did you ask other people? They're not they are not scholars of the language? Yes. So you have a chef, he was not just a scholar of the religion, but also of the language. So he said attached to the law. It is like when you enter the code of a king, when you enter the palace of a king, you send compliments of the king before you speak to the king. Like when you enter into the maybe Buckingham Palace or your to speak to the queen, you would say Your Royal Highness, I have come to visit you. Okay, words to that effect when you For example, when they speak about the King of Saudi Arabia, they see how they will

00:26:18--> 00:26:24

mean it which means the custodian of The Two Holy Mosques, okay, what's been said about him recently, let's not go there.

00:26:25--> 00:26:31

But you get the idea. You have these kind of honorary compliments you give to kings who speak to them.

00:26:32--> 00:26:51

So is it attached to the law is you are sending royal compliments to Allah, before you speak to Allah. This is what it means adhere to the law is like you are giving royal compliment exclusively to Allah subhanho wa Taala adhere to the law, he was Salatu was

00:26:53--> 00:27:23

Salam means all my prayers, the font and the Nuffield, who are therefore, only for Allah. out by iba. The word pious means everything beautiful and appealing. All the good things you do in your life, besides the Salah, like when you, for example, are nice to your parents, when you take care of your neighbors, when you stand up on the train, and you offer your seat to an elderly person, all of these nice things you do apply events. Who should they be for Lila?

00:27:24--> 00:27:51

So you say, adhere to lillah? Wa Salatu? And what are you but all of these things, you know who they're supposed to be for? this supposed to be for you Allah. So at the childhood, you can divide it into three parts. The first part you praise Allah. The second part, you pray for the prophets of Allah Hardison. And the third part, you pray for yourself.

00:27:53--> 00:28:01

You pray for the praise Allah, you pray for the person and then you pray for yourself. You see this, this is how you make a dog.

00:28:02--> 00:28:05

You want to make a dog to Allah, you start off by praising Allah,

00:28:06--> 00:28:17

then what should you do? Since a lot on the processor, then what should you do? Make the offer yourself? This is how you should make water loss pinata likes at all others.

00:28:18--> 00:29:10

So when you said you may pray for the person you say, I said Mr. Alec, you 100 bu or amatola hirakata As salam alayka the word Islam means peace, safety and security. May the peace, safety and security of you Allah be upon the prophets that Allahu Allah so you call him you say au 100 v. o nebby. You know what Nabhi means? It means someone who came with an important message, from inbound inbound means to give a very important piece of news, the word nebby comes from that. You have to be the one who came with a very important piece of news. What about la hirakata, as well as the mercy of Allah be upon you, as well as the Baraka let's hear about chef and as I said, if anyone reflects

00:29:10--> 00:29:31

over this, you just asked Allah to send peace and safety upon the process, Adam and his mercy would realize that this prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not a deity that should be worshipped alongside a law for which God needs to be given mercy which God needs to be given safety.

00:29:32--> 00:29:37

Do you see what he said? He said, people that go to extremes, they raise the rank of the person to the rank of Allah.

00:29:39--> 00:29:47

We're in your shadow, you are saying he needs safety, he needs peace, so he cannot be a danger. Now the other word buckets.

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

bucket is the plural of Baraka Baraka, one of the meaning is long lasting benefits. Okay, long lasting benefits. So you see a lot send your long lost

00:30:00--> 00:30:51

Benefits on this man Mohammed Salah Hello, sir. Mr. Thurmond, he said something amazing. He said What this means is Oh Allah make the followers of the process of them adhere more closely to his teachings. Because when they do, this man will end up getting more and more rewards because of the following of the Muslims. This is how the burkart of a law come to the bottom, when me and you, we live by the teachings of the processor more and more, all of our deeds, a copy of their reward goes to the process of them in his grave, he is benefiting from the following all the Muslims and then you make $1 for yourself, a Salaam or Elena, while everybody likes Salah, hey, you say I made the

00:30:51--> 00:31:45

peace and may safety and make security be on myself. Actually not on myself, Elena on all of us, whether anybody likes him and on every righteous servant of Allah. You see here, the scholar said, You made a draw not for yourself, but for the Muslims in general. And this shows you that the Salah is teaching you to be part of the oma, as if you are unified and you are not individual, even when you say he cannot do what you can to stand in. That is it is you alone, we worship and You alone, we seek assistance, not I worship and I seek assistance, and Hayes senemo Elena made the piece of a lobby on every one of us. This shows us the Brotherhood in the salon. While they're in bed, the last

00:31:45--> 00:32:16

sort of hint episode he said, when you say these words, that it touches every righteous slave law in the heaven and on the earth. Can you imagine that? When you said a lot send peace on us and every righteous person a lot takes that and it touches every righteous person in the sky and on this earth. Who is righteous? This is Hades inside Sahih Bukhari. Think about this farmer in that moment of the shovel.

00:32:17--> 00:33:01

In those words, you are connected with millions of people, wherever they are, if they're righteous, you just made a connection with those people. So karma This is so powerful, and then you end up by returning to praising Allah, Allah shadow Allah Allah and Allah shadow a number hamedan abda who are a pseudo that I have a witness that there is no de t worthy of worship except Allah and I bear witness that this man Mohammed Salah Abu who is his slave for a sudo and His Messenger meeting his last messenger the other to show the show they have now bus to show the kebab and Sharla you can learn

00:33:02--> 00:33:05

now there's just two parts left. In fact three parts.

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

You see a lot on the processor

00:33:09--> 00:33:18

Allahumma salli ala Muhammad Ali Mohammed came out later Allah Ibrahima early Ibrahim and it continues on

00:33:19--> 00:33:47

one of the interesting things about this salon the processor What does it mean to send salon on the processor? There are two opinions The first is that it means our loss and mercy on the processor. The second meaning is Oh Allah remember the processor them in the company of those closest to the angels and the people of Paradise make mention of Mohammed Hassan amongst them for indeed if Allah did that, it would be an honor for the processor

00:33:48--> 00:34:00

assalamo the llama suddenly Allah Mohammed Wada, early Mohammed and upon the URL of Muhammad's the l can mean family. But there's another word in Arabic for family. Anyone know what that word is?

00:34:03--> 00:34:06

Yes, very good. What's the difference between a Helen l?

00:34:08--> 00:34:09

Anyone know?

00:34:11--> 00:34:12

And I went to the next level, isn't it?

00:34:14--> 00:34:40

They said the difference is, can refer to more than just the family. And so the scholars Ebner famously said early Mohammed refers to not just immediate family or the process of them, but all of the followers of the processor. Meaning all of us we are all part of early Mohammed's in our lives and that is beautiful. We are included in the family of the processor. Why? Because we are the followers of the processor.

00:34:41--> 00:34:48

While early Mohammed canossa later Allah Ibrahim. Now we always used to bug me.

00:34:49--> 00:35:00

If I am a sinner, I'm a great prophet of Allah. With all love and respect. What does Ibrahim have to do with sending Salaam the processor what

00:35:00--> 00:35:00

is a connection.

00:35:02--> 00:35:02

What do you think?

00:35:08--> 00:35:09

Okay

00:35:12--> 00:35:24

albana Jana has a late he makes a doctor now I'll make this placemat going to a place of a sacred place and it connects to the processor Okay, maybe yes.

00:35:26--> 00:35:26

Uh huh

00:35:28--> 00:35:33

okay he was the lead of a lot and so was the processor. Okay. Interesting. Yes.

00:35:39--> 00:36:01

Okay. So is he connected to a salon through lineage This is his his goals the lineage goes back to Adnan here who was the center of his Mary is Marian Brahim, etc. So yes, there is a connection. Okay, there he is from the lineage but there are other prophets as well that the lineage of the person and their lineage comes together.

00:36:04--> 00:36:06

Yeah. of the law.

00:36:16--> 00:36:24

The people were both worshipers of statues. Okay, but this is more is also dealing with other problems as well. Okay, the last last one.

00:36:33--> 00:36:34

A lot praises.

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

House.

00:36:37--> 00:36:38

Oh, okay.

00:36:44--> 00:36:46

Okay, I can't remember the verse actually.

00:36:49--> 00:36:51

in Accra, hamidah Majeed

00:36:53--> 00:37:45

Okay, maybe maybe there are many things many links between the bio humanism and the processor. Okay. These two that they mentioned here. The first is the fact is the process that he said himself and Dara to me Ibrahim I am the accepted to our of my father Ibrahim in Islam. If I even if some made a da allometry in the Quran. Yeah. The O Allah sent from amongst my people Rasulullah a messenger yet to do Allah He Maja t to recite upon them universes will use a key and purify them we will kita will Hickman teach them the book? And the Hickman, who is the answer to that door, the processor. So he is linked to Ibrahim because Ibrahim is the one who made the draw for the coming of the processor.

00:37:45--> 00:38:29

Okay, it's quite amazing, isn't it? We are connected with him in this way. So bringing them together in one two hour make sense. For the process of them came because of the Dharma humanism. Another connection they said in everything he said, it is what they call the making a vasila. What sila means to appeal to Allah. You appealing to Allah, you're saying, Oh Allah sense Allah or the processor and his URL, be just like you did to Ibrahim, as if to say Allah, you've already done this flavor rahimullah. So if you can do me a favor on him, then please do it for the profits that are a lot harder as well. This is one of the reasons why Ibrahim al Islam is mentioned as well. And almost

00:38:29--> 00:38:39

as best they said, there are many different opinions as to this. Okay, finally, what is the last thing we do before we finish, we make a draw.

00:38:40--> 00:39:03

There are a number of doors that you can make as well. This is one of the more well known ones. A lot of them in the arrow, the bigger manava will cover caminada jahannam or in fitted myeloma. I mean, shut the fit that intimacy at the job. You asked a lot to give you refuge and safety from four things.

00:39:04--> 00:39:08

Okay, you ask a lot for four things. What do you ask them? What are those four things?

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

A car, the house promotion, and the chart?

00:39:14--> 00:39:15

Now

00:39:17--> 00:39:23

none of those things. In fact, the four things have nothing to do with dystonia, nothing.

00:39:24--> 00:39:35

All of them are to do with your Acura. You know why? Because your Acura is more important than your dunya that's why I say ask a lot to give you refuge from for things why are they

00:39:36--> 00:39:59

the punishment of the grief, the punishment of the grave meaning when a person dies, he enters into a state of battles of the life between this world and the hereafter. And in that stage of his life, if he was a righteous person, then his grave will become a reflection of the paradise in which he will enter May Allah make us like this.

00:40:00--> 00:40:48

But if he was a wretched person, a person who sinned and did not make Toba then he may be punished his grave, and his grave will become like a reflection of his place in Johanna mela zabis. So you asked a lot, the first thing to become in other will come from the punishment of the grave. That's the first thing you ask a law to save you from? What's the second thing? Woman either be, john, from the punishment of the Hellfire, the punishment of the hellfire. This is something you should be thinking about. In the process that he said that when that Johanna will be brought on the Day of Judgment, and he will have 70,000 chains attached to it. And at the end of each chain, there are

00:40:48--> 00:40:58

70,000 angels pulling it down into control. Because jahannam that day will be raging. And it will say Helen Keller

00:40:59--> 00:41:52

Yeah, what's a call to hell, limousines? Allah said, it will be said to Johanna, Are you full now? I will janam say, Is there more? Is there more? Is there more? So Johanna Marie brought like a raging beast on that day, and it will be hungry for the flesh and bones of human beings. So when you say to become mean, either be jahannam mean it with your heart? mean it with your hearts? May Allah save us from the punishment of Janda mean. And then you ask to be saved from a third thing? What mean fitna till Mattia, what moments from the trials of this world, and for the trials of death, they said, the trials of this world are the trials, the tests that try to come between you and Allah, sometimes you

00:41:52--> 00:42:30

go to difficulties in life, and they become a barrier between you and Allah, they become like something that takes you away from Allah, those type of trials, you should ask a lot to save you from and then mammoth in death. They said, it means the trial, either when you're on your deathbed and szczepan is trying to get you to die as a calf. Or when you die and the angels come to you and ask you, who is your Who is your prophet? What is your religion, that will be a test for a person, you ask Allah to save you from the difficulty of that test. And then last thing is what

00:42:31--> 00:42:46

fitnah all missing at the job, the imposter at the job. Now, I always thought to myself, in every salon, you ask Allah to save you from the trial of the jar.

00:42:47--> 00:43:05

That means that the trial of the jar is so difficult that you need to ask a lot every day to save you from it because it is so difficult to pass the test of the junk mail also plans to save us and our children from the testicle at the junk.

00:43:06--> 00:43:08

Okay, what time is that?

00:43:10--> 00:43:17

Okay, inshallah we have few minutes to finish. So this is the door and the last thing you say. A Salaam Aleykum

00:43:18--> 00:43:31

Selam Aleykum Selam Aleykum de la or Santa Monica la de Vaca. Okay, there are different ways of saying it. One interesting things that I saw recently I went to Morocco, they follow the Maliki method.

00:43:32--> 00:43:35

Now one of the really strange things never seen this before.

00:43:36--> 00:43:42

is when they would make to slim the Imam he would say that salaam aleikum.

00:43:44--> 00:43:44

That's it.

00:43:46--> 00:43:47

That's it. Just one.

00:43:48--> 00:43:55

Hey, I was aware of this opinion. Yeah, the Maliki they say the Imam. We should just make 123 Santa Monica.

00:43:57--> 00:43:57

I was aware of this.

00:43:59--> 00:44:07

But what I wasn't aware of is the next one was a mom said. Uh, Sarah Mar Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu.

00:44:09--> 00:44:11

You just went up there now there

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

was a leak.

00:44:14--> 00:44:37

They say no, this is another opinion in the Muslim. Yeah. And what the now the wisdom behind this. They said the Imam should reduce the prayer down to a shortest possible limit. And the minimum is to say Salaam wa Alaykum as soon as you say that the Salah has technically finished.

00:44:38--> 00:44:41

So you should do it to that level. So whoever needs to leave.

00:44:46--> 00:44:54

This is what they said is what is that you can you can check it out yourself in Sharla. Okay, so now Molly Kumara was one. That doesn't mean that you should talk.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

shortening the prayers. This is if you're leading the slot, okay. That is the opinion of

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

The medic is by the way, if you're going to change your opinion has changed the whole opinion. Not just one part of the salon the whole center. Okay?

00:45:08--> 00:45:12

Allah Khalifa, Santa Monica, Mr. Ricardo, Sara, Molly Kumar,

00:45:13--> 00:45:14

who are you saying, Somali come to?

00:45:18--> 00:45:28

The US? Yes. Some of the scholars said you are saying Salaam to the angels who are present? Are the angels that are there with you? Or the angels are generally there in your presence? Have you ever thought about that?

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

So don't worry.

00:45:32--> 00:45:33

But this gave some changes.

00:45:35--> 00:45:45

Other said if you pray in congregation, you are actually saying Somalia come to those that are next year as well. Yeah, this meeting was so dramatic. Okay, just to end with a few tips. Now.

00:45:46--> 00:46:00

There is one tip, the amount of Azadi he gave, he said that, when a person starts to lose focus in Salah, he should imagine that the most respectful person he knows is sitting right there watching it.

00:46:01--> 00:46:35

And then he should say to himself, if I improve myself, or has such a focus, because the most respectful person I know, for me would be my chef, for example, maybe for you will be somebody else is sitting there and is changing myself or what then if I was a presence of the one who is the master of this person, meaning Allah subhanaw taala. And I thought about this very interesting piece of advice. Well, your brain is going in there. And you're thinking about the match. And oh my god, I hope that old school while I'm praying,

00:46:36--> 00:46:48

when that starts to happen, so just a moment, if I was rushing around my slot, and my shift saw me, or somebody else saw me who had you have so much respectful?

00:46:49--> 00:47:34

How would you feel? Would you be rushing it? No, you wouldn't? What then about the one who is the master of that person? Allah subhanaw taala. Okay, one of the really, I think the most important tip, or all of the tips we have given is slow down your salon. This is the most simple but most effective, just slow down your salon. It is only when you slow down your salon, that you be you give yourself a chance to think about what you're saying. But when you speed up your salon, it's very difficult to think about what you're saying. In fact, it is next to impossible. Okay, so this is one, really it is a supervisor, somebody may say,

00:47:35--> 00:48:03

you know, I'm very busy right now. I've got so many things to do. You know, I've got the kids of the job, send an email. And then on top of that, you start to hear your phone vibrate. That's the worst, isn't it? I wonder who it is? Is it Facebook? Is it WhatsApp? Is it telegram? Who knows? Yeah, your salon is ruined. You start to think about all these different things and you start to rush. Okay. You might say I'm too busy to slow down.

00:48:05--> 00:48:13

And I'm busy person. At that moment. Think about the processor. Was there anyone more busier than the processor?

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

You know how many wives he had at one point in his life?

00:48:19--> 00:48:20

You know,

00:48:21--> 00:48:27

at one point in his life, he had nine wives, nine wives,

00:48:28--> 00:48:29

children.

00:48:30--> 00:48:38

On top of that, a mission to take Islam to the world. At nighttime, standing up in clear lay.

00:48:39--> 00:48:46

Was anyone who visited him. Was there any more important matters pending than the matters that are pending for the processor?

00:48:48--> 00:49:36

No, though he was the busiest person in the world. He took his time when he was praying. And this shows you that panela you are never too busy to rush your salon. Never. In fact it Okay, it goes one step further. He said Do you realize that the thing you are rushing is the thing that will make everything else easy. You are rushing the one thing in order to do all of these other problems to fix these problems that you have. But the one thing that will fix them is the thing you are running away from. So if you were to fix this one thing, so many other things, your life will fall into place. And this is one of the very beautiful tips as well. Just to slow down your recitation. You're

00:49:36--> 00:49:48

never too busy to slow down your station. Of course as we said, it happens up and down. It is a struggle. But what I would say Finally, is think about this.

00:49:49--> 00:49:56

You spent time to come here to learn how to focus in your salon. You spend time to learn the meanings of the salon.

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

You have taken time, effort

00:50:00--> 00:50:06

You have equipped yourself with the tools that you need to now go and experience true Salah?

00:50:07--> 00:50:26

Don't you see that Allah has seen your effort that Allah has seen the time you have sacrificed. Now don't you think Allah would make it happen for you if you wanted to, kind of make things happen for you? Of course, all Alan needs to see is that you are willing and you are trying.

00:50:27--> 00:51:04

If Allah sees you are willing and trying, then nothing is impossible. Nothing is impossible for our last panel. We asked him, to make us of those who pray the prayer as it should be preached. May Allah mix of those who accept our prayers, a mix of those that pray Our Salah with who sure contemplation and pondering, I mean, your bladder mean biological desire. We have five minutes to Sharma five minutes maximum. Yep. Any questions? sisters don't usually get a chance to ask questions. So if they want to write it, send it down. We will try to answer inshallah. Yes.

00:51:06--> 00:51:12

It is crucial what he said today, about the vastness of the universe. Yes.

00:51:15--> 00:51:15

Thank you.

00:51:18--> 00:51:23

The size of the war is vastly diverse. Yes.

00:51:25--> 00:51:26

Senator, yes.

00:51:28--> 00:51:30

Is our understanding and believe that, you know,

00:51:33--> 00:51:38

everything on the sake of this war is our understanding. I don't know.

00:51:40--> 00:51:46

question all the time. I think what I don't pose to anybody today that I'm asking you.

00:51:47--> 00:51:54

The other this is art alone is not any other creation or any other.

00:51:56--> 00:52:11

Okay, so the the uncle's asking question that look, we spoke about the universe being so vast, so many planets and so on and so forth? Is there another creation of a law living somewhere out in the universe that we don't know about? This is your question.

00:52:12--> 00:52:27

The simple answer to this is a law knows best. There is no decisive proof from the Quran or the Sunnah, to say this or to say that, yeah, however, it seems as though it is more likely that they The only creation existing in this universe.

00:52:28--> 00:52:36

That is like the human being top of creation is the creation of this earth. And one of the verses that comes to mind is Allah says,

00:52:38--> 00:53:04

who will lead the Haleakala comb murfin? Abdi Jamia? Allah says he created whatever is in this earth for you. Meaning you human beings. Yeah, so Allah Allah Allah knows best. It seemed as though it's closer to the understanding that human beings are the only creation created by law to worship Him in this world from that human category. Biology no one knows best. Maybe it's

00:53:12--> 00:53:13

just one small question.

00:53:15--> 00:53:18

What could be the wisdom behind most parents?

00:53:19--> 00:53:20

legislating?

00:53:28--> 00:54:11

Okay, the last question, what's the wisdom behind this dude being repeated twice? The record is done once. Why is this dude done twice? Well, Long Island. It seems as though that the salute as I said, it is the greatest expression of servitude. The physical posture is the greatest expression of servitude and humility to Allah subhanaw taala and perhaps because of a loss of love for it, did he make us repeat it? Yeah, and we know that the person said that the closest a slave is to his master is in the suit. So this dude is something that is special above and beyond all the other possible salon owners best

00:54:12--> 00:54:17

disagrees. Have a question as to what edition I didn't point out.

00:54:19--> 00:54:21

A warning and bla bla

00:54:24--> 00:54:25

bla bla

00:54:28--> 00:54:33

and what we find in the llama, Allah is obligated to understand the meaning law.

00:54:36--> 00:54:38

One must understand that.

00:54:40--> 00:54:48

So obviously, this one is fully what happened. You see the Arabic language was confined within that.

00:54:50--> 00:54:53

Cancel the Egyptian illusions more plans.

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

Change the mother tongue and to Arabic language.

00:55:01--> 00:55:10

For the southern portion, yes, the the perfection and intoxication you can either cause a diversion from Salah yes diversion from Salah

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

come Let

00:55:14--> 00:55:20

me make you on the Microsoft dunk who make a make very good point he said there is a verse in the Quran

00:55:21--> 00:56:07

that parable salado unto Galahad that movement of Oulu here that do not go near the prayer whilst you are intoxicated until you know what you are saying. This is early on when alcohol was not fully prohibited is. So this verse shows us that if a law prohibited people from praying because they are drunk on the basis that they don't understand what they are saying. Then it teaches us that to pray Allah to pray to Allah with the true prayer a person needs to know what he's saying. Yeah, very good point. Okay, one sister asked, Can we recite the door of saving ourselves from the grave punishment Hellfire Charles Charles and the job during the studio, in the studio, you can make any door you

00:56:07--> 00:56:08

want.

00:56:09--> 00:56:33

There is no limit on the door you make and in the Nuffield salaat, many scholars said you can make dua in the language of your choice. So if you struggle with Arabic, make dua in English or do No, there's no difficulty in that whatsoever. In fact, I would encourage you to do that in your head, not in the foot in the front of the person who said prayers you have seen me praying and he only is to speak in Arabic And Allah, Allah.

00:56:34--> 00:56:36

Okay, you want to ask Allah.

00:56:37--> 00:56:50

So we took we took about another pushup in terms of schools that had like karate, or other sort of tradition, yes. When, say, for example, a teacher comes in shoes off.

00:56:55--> 00:56:58

Okay, so the brother asked a question about

00:57:01--> 00:57:15

sometimes when somebody is learning kung fu or something, and they enter in his tradition, to make a certain gesture, like put your head down, or put your arms inside, so on and so forth, is this permissible?

00:57:16--> 00:57:34

line is, it seems as though this should be avoided, because there's a specific prohibition, about lowering yourself to other people. However, there is another opinion, and that is that there's a difference between lowering yourself in either like bowing,

00:57:35--> 00:57:38

or lowering your head even to someone

00:57:39--> 00:58:20

or to this dude, the status that he holds, or rather the position he holds, for example, a person is a king. And usually a king is shown a certain level of respect and even justice. So if you were to give that gesture to a king, it doesn't come down to the prohibition because a king ought to be shown this, okay? And that is something that is known. But if you were to give that respect, and that gesture to someone who doesn't hold a position deserve it of that, this is where they said is haram. And they said the reason behind this is because you can only show that respect to someone who Allah has given an indication you can

00:58:22--> 00:58:26

so you're showing respect to him is in fact, endorsed by Allah.

00:58:27--> 00:58:37

It's very deep. Okay. But regardless, my my advice to you is to avoid doing that Sharla and you need to tell the instructor chill out, you know, show respect you

00:58:39--> 00:58:40

Okay, Mark
