hamdulillah we have an awareness. And we have many of our brothers and sisters, they pray.
And this is a very
beautiful thing. But the problem is that I see sometimes is that many of our Muslim brothers and sisters, they delay their Salat. They delay this fella. Oh, they pray, they combine their prayers at the end of the day. Why? Because either they're at work and I didn't pray at work because they're shy to pray at work or they, they come up with some very weak excuse that they can't pray at work, or because they're out there. We're out in the shopping center or the marketplace. And there was just no way to pray. excuses that shavon makes up. Well, let me remind you of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who said in the math, jewelry let Li Allah in the Madrid Allah,
Allah Allah Masjid and Mata hora the earth with a Muslim unlike other scriptures, the earth for the Muslim is a Masjid a place of sudduth where you can perform your sujood your prostrations and it is a place of purification is either water or if there's no water there is to dry ablution right. So what he said is okay, so you go to spend a few hours in the shopping center. Okay, for whatever reason you go shopping that doesn't mean you cannot go and make in a toilet it does not mean that you can't find a corner worst case scenario go into a changing room into one of these stores and perform you're solid and and hamdulillah today we have you know, mobile phones with applications
which have the prayer compass the Qibla they're all you can carry a compass for a measly few dollars. If you are serious about your solid will lay there'll be no excuse. I just cannot fathom really, I find that I cannot understand any excuse to delay the Salah. Unless, unless you have forgotten or, or what. Or you have slipped through the solid. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said Manama Ancelotti, una sia fall usaully her either Akira her lack of Allah tala Illa Dallek, that whoever Manama on solid if you slip through a solid, or you forget a solid, pray it as soon as you remember it. Pray as soon as you remember it. Don't be shy, what are you? What are you
shy about? What are you shy about? So panela that shows you are showing that Islam is very deep and serious. When you pray in public while law he these disbelievers. They look at you and many of them are jealous. Many of us say, Wow, look at this person who's performing his prayer. That means Allah is our priority, not the shopping center and not our desires. Let us remember that in this Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said our Salah to Allah walk to pray and it's fixed time. And Allah says in the Quran,
he says in a salata, kanatal el Mina, Kitab and makuta salette has been prescribed upon the believers when at fixed times, not when you when I feel like another this has disheartens me when I hear Muslims who start who have
they have early shifts. So they have to start work for example, maybe at four o'clock in the morning, right? So they have to start at four and let's say budget starts at five or 430. So they're going to be into their work so what they do because they've woken up early what do they do? I don't know if you've heard of this. They pray early Have you heard of this? They pray the future will lay I heard this recently. They pray they fudger prayer at two o'clock or three o'clock before it's time is it acceptable? No. You can't pray when you feel like I'll give you but they say you know I'm going to be busy and Allah is off for him. Oh pray earlier or earlier? Okay, I'll ask you. Are you
allowed to perform CME Ramadan? Can you pay Ramadan? Can you can you fast Ramadan in Shaolin? Or in Shaban or interledger? Or in mojarra? Can you do that? No. Why? Because it's before it's time you can perform an act of worship when you feel like it. Allah azza wa jal has set the time can you perform Hajj next month and and and it's you know, and it's the month of Roger for example. You can patch has a specific time, but I'm alone has a specific time. So that has a specific time.
Let's not pick and choose and make up our own Dean. Okay, so we need to pray when Allah azza wa jal wants us to pray. So now, establish three things. Let's pray on time. Let's not delay our
Press Yes. Can you delay your press, you can delay your press if there is a dire need
a dire need. If there's a situation you're in, maybe you are a doctor or a surgeon, you're operating on someone, it's an operation for several hours and need to combine between the hood and acid at the time of arrival. At the time of also, this is permissible or as it's a prey model in Asia at the time of the sunraysia. This is permissible. Okay, you are a traveler, you are sick and hamdulillah Islam gives us concessions. It gives us allowances. It gives us discounts. Okay, but we take it too fast sometimes. Okay, first, victory in quantum Latin among us the people of knowledge. If you're unsure
