Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi etchmiadzin All praise is due to Allah and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and upon all of the prophets and all of the messengers sent by God sent by Allah azza wa jal to enlighten and to guide all of mankind mean my dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:45--> 00:00:56

Today inshallah to Allah topic is entitled, The importance or optional prayers and related matters,

00:00:57--> 00:01:18

or related Max's optional praise and related matters. So, today in shallow Tyler, we are going to talk about the prayers that we refer to as the Sunnah prayers in Islam. As you know, when it comes to prayer, there is the father of pray, which is also known as worship. But

00:01:19--> 00:01:30

generally speaking, we refer to the five daily prayers as our farrand obligatory prayers, they are mandated they are compulsory, they have fixed times.

00:01:32--> 00:01:43

Then we have another set of prayers that are called the noir fill or the Sunnah prayers now with regards to the Sunnah prayers, they are either

00:01:45--> 00:02:43

makeda or Hiroo makeda. So they are either stressed upon whereby the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he consistently praised them, or they are higher makeda the total war they are optional, whereby the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has recommended them through one Hadith or another. Now generally speaking, the prayers that are associated to fudger to Lahore a sermon and I share those related prayers are referred to as RWA tip, which is the plural of variety by prathima. So that our tip of the silhouette, and we have, as we go into here in a moment, hadiths that talk about the merit and the virtue of these silhouette, these praise, Allah subhana wa Taala without a doubt,

00:02:44--> 00:03:36

the most beloved acts of worship to him, which acts as the obligatory actions. So, first and foremost, we must ensure that we are fulfilling our obligatory prayers, that that we are fulfilling them in the manner in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wants us to fulfill them, as he said, so Luca, Mara Ito Mooney, who suddenly pray as you have seen me praying and we must perform them on time. On the prescribed time, this is Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Enough salata, kanatal, el Mina, keytab and makuta that the Salah has been prescribed upon the believers at fixed times. And in the Hadith bootsy Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, that nothing is more beloved to him than that

00:03:37--> 00:03:41

which he has made obligatory upon the son of Adam.

00:03:42--> 00:03:46

And when he said, he said that a person

00:03:47--> 00:04:42

continues to draw a need to Allah subhana wa Taala how, through the nowhere fill three through the optional acts of worship. So today, that's what we're talking about. We're talking about the opportunity to draw nearer to Allah subhanho wa Taala through the optional press, with hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen, which also not only serve as a means of drawing nearer to Allah azza wa jal, but as a means for compensating for any shortcomings that we have in our field or in our obligatory account, any shortfall there is made up is made up through the Sunnah, acts of worship, and that is through our swinden will add together all the higher makeda sunan al Qaeda and sunon are robotic. So

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

we begin inshallah, who to Allah emammal no Rahim Allah who to Allah has dedicated in the book of virtues Baboo or keytab alphabet in the keytab. The Book of virtues he has dedicated a number of chapters regarding to this the first

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

Chapter entitled it the excellence of optional praise, along with the obligatory praise now the first Hadith is the Hadith that is found in Sahih Muslim Hadith. omo Habiba wrote the loved one Hmm, who is Homer Habiba is one of the mothers of the believers. In other words, one of the wives of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Habib was the loved one. How about her? She heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying a house and mentioned he said the prophet SAW Selim said

00:05:37--> 00:05:50

he said, a house or a mansion will be built in general for every Muslim who offers 12 Raka of optional salette other than the obligatory salad in a day and night.

00:05:51--> 00:06:30

So the prophet SAW Selim said ma'am in abdeen, Muslim in you suddenly lilla heater Allah Coolio min thin Tae Ashura, Taka, Tata, one viral sarebbe 11 Allahu Allahu baith antigen. So whenever you pray 12 units in the day and night, what is he referring to hear, he's referring to the two units of sunlight before fed the four units of sunlight before the two units of sun after the first of the two units of sun Aftermath and the two units of sweetener after a shot.

00:06:31--> 00:07:26

If you do your maths, that will come to a total of 12 units, those 12 units, if you maintain them, and you are consistent in performing them, through them, Allah xojo will build for you a mansion in general, we ask Allah azza wa jal to build for us and to create for us the dimensions and to give us the energy and all that it takes in the zeal for us to be performing these sunon of which are known as these are known as the robotic, the robotic, the SLM, he would not miss them out except if he was traveling. He would only pray the two units of Sunnah that come before the budget pray, the others, he never prayed. The other prayers he never prayed. And we'll talk about what to have later on. He

00:07:26--> 00:07:37

did pray that within his pray, he continued to pray his night prayers, even though it was even though he was a musafir or a traveler. Another Hadith that I want to

00:07:38--> 00:08:28

bring to your attention that a man will know we Rahim Allah to Allah included, because we didn't have time to include all of the hadiths. I've had picked a number of Hudis that are related to this chapter. Abdullah even Maha ferrovia loved one who He states that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in the Hadith fandom Bukhari and Muslim that baina Cooley as a naini Sala Bay in a coolie as an A new Sala Bay Nakula as na sala. And then he says the third is a pile of his family sentiment. He said that there is a solid between every event and karma between every event where the what has been the quality produce the event and the karma, of the Salah, between this period, you

00:08:28--> 00:09:14

can pray to units of prayer. He said this price, he said this three times, that between every event and every karma, you can pray to units of pray for the one who wishes so by the by the mere fact that Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying Lima and share it means for the one who wishes therefore is it obligatory? Now it's not obligatory, it's not obligatory, even though he said it three times. The very fact that he said limb and share for the one who wishes so there is a Sunnah, but I guess a lot of people may be may be unaware of and that is the Sunnah of two units of prayer between then and between the karma

00:09:16--> 00:09:42

we move on inshallah huhtala. No, no, we have a hammer hula, hula Allah. He has another chapter. And this chapter. It's called he entitled it the emphasis on offering to rock art sooner before the budget pray. So as I said earlier, that prophesize tell him he never missed the sooner of the budget, pray and emphasize pray. And so here we have Hades, Shara de la vida,

00:09:43--> 00:09:45

originally found in Sahara Buhari,

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

that Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he never admitted for a cart before the vote of prey and toorak art before the fragile prey, so he never left out.

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

For units of prayer, before the hook in this hadith and the two units before,

00:10:07--> 00:10:09

before the fudger prayer

00:10:11--> 00:10:26

So, he used to offer these two prayers regularly and as I said earlier, these would this would be referred to as a Sunnah makeda Now, we come to the hadith of an Israeli love on her also, that is found them Bihari a Muslim that

00:10:27--> 00:11:22

she said Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not attach more importance to any nowhere feel to any option of prayer than the to record of prayer before the dawn prayer before fudger. Now with regards to budget prayer, some communities some cultures they refer to this prayer as subo so if you say fudger to them, they may not understand what you are referring to because they know it as Subaru or Subaru, okay. Pre select will fudger In any case, both soap and virgin have been mentioned. Okay, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran was so busy he that NFS will fetch Erie while I am in Azure. So both names have been mentioned in the Quran. Both are correct, but the

00:11:22--> 00:11:31

one that is more regularly mentioned is Salah till surgery, Salah toil fudger the dawn pray that the break of dawn

00:11:32--> 00:11:36

the next Hadith is Hadith Ayesha also regular one hahaha.

00:11:37--> 00:12:05

And this hadith is fantasy Muslim. The process lm said the two Raka before the federal prayer are better than this world and all it contains a low equity. Look at the merit. He said Anna his Salatu was Salam rakata and surgery hiren mina dounia one fee her that these two units before budget are better than all of what the dunya contains and what is in it. Okay.

00:12:07--> 00:12:53

Also, mmm no Rahim Allah who to Allah he actually dedicated in this next chapter a whole chapter entitled, referring back to the swindler prayer virgin briefness to be adopted in offering the tutor sooner before the budget prayer, their time and the solar tourist site inland. So Panama, a whole chapter dedicated to these two units of prayer, and they briefness Yani SubhanAllah. This prayer is so important of all the sun their prayers, yet despite it it's it's important. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he did them very quickly. He prayed these two units very quickly. So in the hadith of it showed a loved one Hmm.

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

There is found the Bihari Muslim.

00:12:58--> 00:13:18

Allah smishing, as I said, he said used to refer to the short prayer between the event and the karma of the dawn and she also said that he used to offer the two supererogatory Raka pray of budget and make them so short in duration that I used to think whether he had recited Al Fatiha or not.

00:13:19--> 00:13:36

So she would doubt she think so Pamela, the prophet SAW Selim he prayed them so quickly, that she thought maybe he didn't even recite Al Fatiha. That's how quickly he prayed them. But of course he did. And we learn that the prophet SAW Allah while he was selling, that

00:13:38--> 00:13:46

he recited Al Fatiha and in the first locker, he would after Fatiha he would recite surah which Surah

00:13:48--> 00:14:15

Al Fatiha he would recite so that will calf your own soul it will calf your own Kalia your health care for your own like moto moto boon to the end of the surah and in the second Raka after Al Fatiha what would he recite surah to last called who Allahu Ahad. This is this one nice and easy. Okay, so this is something to keep in mind. And we have

00:14:17--> 00:14:26

the Hadith that is finished with a Muslim Hadith Abu hurayrah Allahu Allah, that the Messenger of Allah saw seminary cited in the two

00:14:27--> 00:14:43

paragraph era Chi Chi and fetcher the two suta kuliah you healthcare for your own waku Allahu Ahad Kalia you healthcare for your own Baku, Allah who had two chapters, which are to do with

00:14:45--> 00:14:57

absolute monotheism, absolute towhead. You see what happened? The disbelievers at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the worshipers of the idols. They came to him

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

when they were disappeared.

00:15:00--> 00:15:49

pointed with the fact that he's not that he's people, or that the people of that time are no longer worshipping the idols introduced to them by their forefathers. And they said to him, Look, how do we come to an agreement? How about we come to an agreement that you worship our idols for one year, and we will worship your Lord, who worship Allah for one holy? How about this compromise? And so Allah azza wa jal revealed to the Prophet Mohammed saw Selim, at that very time, I surah, a short surah found in Jesus, amen, to be recited until the day of judgment, whereby there is absolutely no compromise, when it comes to the worship of Allah azza wa jal and singeli. singling him out alone,

00:15:50--> 00:15:58

ascribing and associating no partners to him fully Are you healthcare for your own, say, are you who have this belief that

00:16:00--> 00:16:02

I do not worship what you worship?

00:16:04--> 00:16:09

One and Two might be doing, and you will not worship what I am worshiping.

00:16:10--> 00:16:50

When I become a habit to be doing, I'm Alberto lakum, Dino, Kamali, again at the end, Allah says, to you is your religion and to mine, and to me is mine, my religion? So there is to be no compromise? When it comes to the worship of Allah azza wa jal and called who Allah had Ahad say Allah is one his absolute kulu Allahu Ahad Allahu Allahu Samad meaning that all of the creation is dependent on Allah subhanho wa Taala and he depends on none, or no one or nothing called who Allahu Ahad

00:16:51--> 00:17:04

is one, Allahu Samad. lemmya lead while I'm youlet Okay, it does not beget he doesn't he was not begotten. Well, Amir Kula who Khufu one ahead and nothing

00:17:06--> 00:17:49

resembles Eliza. Nothing is like Eliza gel. He is perfect. To Him belongs the Most Beautiful Names and attributes. Laser chemistry he Shay, nothing is like unto Allah. He is the old hearing. He is the OC he's the old knowing. He is Allah subhanahu Allah, Allah hula Illa Illa Who? Allah there is no ILA no God, no deity that deserves to be worshipped, except Allah except he, Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Creator of the heavens, the creator of the earth, and the creator of all that is between them and all and everything that exists.

00:17:50--> 00:18:10

And hamdulillah once again for the Nirvana and for the blessing of the deen of Islam. Alhamdulillah for towhead for monotheism. Alhamdulillah for Islam that warns us of shirk, that warns us of polytheism of associating partners to the almighty to Allah azza wa jal

00:18:12--> 00:18:32

So, these are two chapters that we recite in the budget prayer super pray. Okay, so now prays before the Tucson the prayer that comes before the fudger Now, we move on now to the Sunnah of our prayer, the Sunnah of our prayer. And here we have a number of narrations

00:18:33--> 00:18:39

in honor of a loved one who or a loved one whom Allah be pleased with him and he with his father, I'm not even alpha pub.

00:18:41--> 00:19:27

He said, I offered along with the last messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to look at before and after the horror press to to Raka before and after her pray. In another narration, the narration of shadowline hahahaha is found in mojari Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he never admitted for a cat supererogatory prayer before the vote of prayer. So again, you have the choice to pray either two or four for is more complete, and more in line with the consistency of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and him praying these four prayers before the four that are forth or that are obligatory in the Hadith is found in sunon Abbey there would a Buddha would and a

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

telemovie. Hadith Mahabharata, Allah, Allah, as you saw Selim, he said, Whoever observes the practice of offering for a cart before the horse, before her prey, and for a cart after her prey, listen to the reward, Allah will shield him against the fire, Allah will shield him. So again, by adhering to for before the hood for after the whole. So including your for a photo, you've paid a total of 12 Records right there. And then

00:20:01--> 00:20:17

That will act as your shield as your barrier. A barrier, a shield between you and between the Hellfire will layer the biller. Let's move on to the answer of prayer. Now the sooner of the answer prayer is a room.

00:20:19--> 00:21:01

It's not stressed upon like the sunon like the tsunami of the other prays such as the Son of God and the horror and muscle regeneration. And we have the Hadith that is found in Sudan abita wood and tsunami, Timothy. Hadith urban Omar radi Allahu anhu, Masha, Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said May Allah He said, Rahim, Allah hombre and Salaam cobla laughs We are banned. He said, may Allah have mercy on the man who offers for a car before the us supreme. So when you pray, pray or before praying your father must be praying for you are, you are inshallah huhtala

00:21:03--> 00:21:24

going to be receiving the runner and the mercy of Allah azza wa jal by praying these four however, bear in mind that these four units of prayer are not within the 12 units that we spoke about earlier, which entitle you to a mansion in Jannah insha Allah who to Allah,

00:21:25--> 00:21:30

Sunnah of the mother of prayer, mother of prayer, the prayer that we pray at sunset

00:21:31--> 00:21:42

we have the hadith of Abdullah ibn MacGuffin, or the Allahu Allahu Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Salut, caudwell, el Masri.

00:21:43--> 00:21:44

Kala

00:21:45--> 00:21:49

Lima and share he said he said it three times he said

00:21:50--> 00:22:11

offer to Raka before the Monterey pray offer to recap before the mercury pray and he said this three times and he repeated it and after the third time he added he who may wish So in other words, again, you may pray before mahari pray two rakaat if you wish, and this is something which is a swindler.

00:22:12--> 00:22:14

Also we have

00:22:16--> 00:22:29

the sooner prayer of course, offering to Raka Okay, after Salah to Allah after certain most of the Sunnah is to pray two units of prayer.

00:22:34--> 00:23:26

The next the next one that I want to talk about is the Sunnah of the reshot prayer. And here we have a hadith and that is Hadith Ibn Ahmad has narrated that he offered to record after the footprint of Russia with Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Abdullah bin Mohammed has narrated that Allah's mysteries wa sallam has said there is a select between every tech beer and the event. So again, there is two units of prayer that you pray after selected Asia MMO MMO na Rahim Allahu taala has another chapter. It is called Bab sinner to Juma what is the Sunnah when it comes to Juma prayer. Now Juma prayer is not waterproof. So, when we refer to the salad that is prayed in the

00:23:26--> 00:23:26

masjid

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

during Juma

00:23:31--> 00:24:12

during the Friday prayer, the we don't refer to this as Serato. We say this celestial aluma Okay, for those who are praying at home, such as women, for example, who have not attended the mission, they don't pray to units they pray for they pray, and they can can only pray those four units of prayer after the commencement TIME OF GOD pray and they cannot pray. If for example, they have an Islamic channel that is broadcasting live the Salah to Juma you know you might say the Haram of Mecca or Medina or the Haram of Palestine

00:24:13--> 00:24:35

or any other question, or they can hear on the radio, you know live prayer and they just want to pray with the Imam Can they do so? No they cannot do so. You cannot simply follow the prayer from the television or from the radio. You actually have to be there. You have to be on that site at that venue at that Masjid.

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

So here we have a number of hadiths Hadith, Abdullah ibn Ahmad Allahu Allahu Allahu anhu. Man, may Allah be pleased with them both. He said, I offered along with a less messy just sell alone while he was selling to America after the Juma prayer. So when it comes to Yama Juma and you come to the to the Friday prayer, if you come to the message

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

Should you sit down you can pray as many lots of two units as you desire.

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

There is no specific

00:25:09--> 00:25:19

number of units and there is no specific Sunnah with regards to the Juma prayer, or when you come to the masjid, okay?

00:25:21--> 00:25:22

In another Hadith,

00:25:23--> 00:25:39

Hadith Abu huraira radi Allahu Allahu wa that is found in Sahih Muslim if when any one of you offers the Friday prayer, he should offer for a card soon after it so you can have the option to pray two or four after

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

another Hadith Hadith even Omar regular Juan Houma Allah says Allah messenger sauce Ellen would not offer any salad in the mosque after the Friday prayer to he had turned to his house, he would then have to record the how do we

00:25:58--> 00:26:24

consolidate between the two integrations, if you are praying, you sooner pray in the masjid. He would be more complete to pray for units two and two. If you are going to go home and perform your sooner than just Pro Tools for now. Sumitra Juma when you go home so this is how the older man have consolidated between these narrations

00:26:27--> 00:27:16

we move on to the next chapter. Mmm no Rahim Allah who to Allah has included the desirability of offering their wife in praise at home. So the Sunnah is to pray your Sunnah at home, whether it's your knife in your spinner, which is a cutter which is stressed upon the sweetness to prayed at home. How did they even Sabbath or their loved one who Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said people are for your Salat in your homes meaning your voluntary Salah because the best solid of a man is the one he offers at home except the obligatory select the best solid turn is the option of solid. This is the center. So if you want to pray in the masjid, frigid, you pray you're to spin

00:27:16--> 00:27:27

off virgin at home. Then you come to the masjid and pray with the Imam, the father, likewise, so on and so forth. With regards to the rest of your press.

00:27:28--> 00:27:40

Narrated Eben Amara radi Allahu anhu man, as we read in Buhari a Muslim Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you should observe part of the salat, meaning part of the Noire fill

00:27:41--> 00:27:54

in your homes, do not turn your homes into graves, or into graveyards. Okay, so what this means, it teaches us two things, two important lessons. The first lesson is that

00:27:56--> 00:28:27

your houses should have a portion of your solar. There needs to be the Victrola the remembrance of Allah in your homes. Don't turn them into graveyards, because we know that you are not allowed to perform prayers. In graveyard it is prohibited to perform solid in the graveyard except for the Salah to janessa URL allowed to perform the funeral prayer if you haven't performed select to jenessa on a deceased person because you came late

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

to the funeral procession then you are allowed to perform that solid right there and then as for your other silhouette. As for your other praise, they should not be prayed in the graveyard. So do not turn your homes into graveyards. In other words, places where prayer is not performed. So it's very very important that we pray Our sooner praise at home

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

barakallahu feeco

00:28:57--> 00:29:47

another Hadith Hadith Jabulani Allahu Allah, Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, he said that when you have finished your final Salah when you have finished your followups Allah in, in the masjid, in the mosque, he should observe some of your salad at home. Allah will bless your homes because of your salad. In other words, because of your salad in your homes. So again, if you want the Baraka, you want for there to be blessing in your home. Then make sure there is a good portion portion of your solid that is performed in your home. barakallahu Phu Kham Now sometimes you see some Muslims when they pray in the masjid, or they pray at home or they pray somewhere. You see

00:29:47--> 00:29:48

them after a solid

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

after select will further what do they do, they move from one place to another place or they swap positions with the person next to them.

00:30:01--> 00:30:19

They make sure they speak before performing their sooner prayer. The idea, the sooner prayer that comes after the first prayer. What is the basis of this? We have a hadith the Hadith is found in Sahih Muslim. It's the hadith of Rama even appa

00:30:20--> 00:30:21

Palmer Eben, aka

00:30:24--> 00:30:27

that NASA even debate he sent him to

00:30:29--> 00:30:30

site even

00:30:32--> 00:30:49

Namir, to ask him about some things that while we had seen him doing in salette, he said, Yes, I offered the Friday prayer along with him in the enclosure. In the Matsuura, there's an area in the masjid.

00:30:53--> 00:31:41

This was an enclosure and macrofauna is an enclosure in the masjid or a place which was made for the security of the rulers for the security of the rulers. So, when the Muslim halifa is the whole effort rashidun used to offer their prayers in congregation, they would occupy this place. In any case, he says here that I offered the Friday prayer along with him in the enclosure in the Mk Sora. And when the Imam concluded the Select with the tasleem I stood up in my place and offered the Sunnah prayer. When Where are we went home he sent for me and when I came, he said never do again. What you have done, when you have observed the Friday prayer, you must not start another sooner pray

00:31:42--> 00:32:29

to you have spoken to someone or have shifted your place. Because Allah is the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordered us not to follow up the congregational Salah with any other salah and to we have talked, in other words, talk to someone or move from that place. So while we're he saw this action from someone, and then he gave him instructions, he said to him, Look, we learned from the sooner and over this happened on the Friday prayer. This was a specific incident. But the specifics of this incident does not limit this should not at this time. The sooner is in general, because he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when you have finished a congregational

00:32:29--> 00:32:57

prayer, when you have finished a Salah to Gemma, don't go straight into the Sunnah pray without having having spoken or moved from your position Why? It shows now that there is a clear distinct distinction between the Father and the Son. Otherwise if you stand up straight or Salah Hawk, but it is as if you've added another unit to that prayer. So we want to make that very clear

00:32:58--> 00:33:22

distinction between the third and between the swindler pray. So, this is why you will see many people they swap positions and likewise by swapping positions, you are allowing for that place of the earth or that ground to be a witness for you in Charla huhtala on the day of judgment that you prayed in this position and that position, inshallah hutan

00:33:23--> 00:33:31

the next pray is waterproof. waterproof. mm una Rahim Allahu taala. He

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

has included a chapter

00:33:37--> 00:33:51

dedicated a chapter. He calls it Baboo has siala selected with three. What Diane and husana aka what Diane work with it pray it's time and it's truly

00:33:53--> 00:33:56

Now the word Witter means odd.

00:33:57--> 00:34:05

There is a hadith in the Lucha in the Lucha with turon. You hit bull with Allah is Witter. Allah is one

00:34:07--> 00:34:30

and he loves Witter. And that's why you will find in Islam. Many acts of worship are done in an odd number. Whether it be five pillars of Islam, whether we perform the work or we circulate the Kaaba seven times we walk between Safa and Marwa seven times

00:34:31--> 00:35:00

we whether it be saying things three times, okay? What is a number that is favored by Allah? Or in Islam the odd number is favored by Allah Subhana Allah Thailand. So here we have the hadith of highly Ibn Abul pilot or the Allahu anhu what are the that is originally found in Santa Ana Timothy and soon and Abby there would hear he said the winter prayer is not applicable.

00:35:01--> 00:35:07

As the prescribed prayers, but Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam observed it

00:35:08--> 00:35:18

as his regular practice, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the law with turon you have bull[???]ter for outeiro Quran.

00:35:19--> 00:35:24

The prophet SAW Selim, he said Allah is littered, meaning single or odd

00:35:25--> 00:35:44

number and loves what is Witter. So after witr prayer of followers of the Quran, of followers of the Quran offer the witr prayer. Now we find, for example, that the Hanafi school of thought they look at this prayer and they deem it as being magical as one of the

00:35:45--> 00:36:31

obligatory prayers, meaning that if you miss it out, you are sinful. However, the more correct position and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best is that celestial wizardry is one of the sooner that is more academic, that is stressed upon. So, some of the other men, they would not take the witness, they would not allow the witness of a person who did who was complacent with regards to his which had prayer, or did not offer the width and prayer because of its importance. So salata router is the last prayer of the night, and it couldn't be in an odd number whether you pray one, whether you pray 3579, but at most it's 11.

00:36:33--> 00:37:15

So it is a pseudonym okay that we have another Hades Hades is Sha one Sha, Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he observed the water pray in every part of the night at the beginning in the middle, and at the last part of the night. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, however, would finish his prayer before the fudger before dawn. So it's earliest time that you can pray. The earliest time of Salah truth is directly after Asia. So you pray you're a short prayer, you pray to sooner pray, then you can pray and offer your winter prayer. That's the earliest time you have to pray in the middle of the night. But the best time to pray it, as we read in other heads is the

00:37:15--> 00:37:40

latter or the third part of the night. This is the best time to pray your selected winter in the mid 30s, North north by Eben amarante, a loved one who lost messenger solomani he was selling he said HR Lu and hirasawa, cucumber Levitra, he said make quitter pray the last of your prayer at night. So

00:37:42--> 00:38:19

this is a Yanni with regards to the times of offering the witr prayer in other Hadees Hadees Abu sightings of your loved one who are da that is fantasias Muslim, Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said I will tiru tarbela and to spit out your vocabulary and to speak to that means offer your winter prayer before the budget before the dawn prayer. Another Hadith had this is shakeela one when she says that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to offer his voluntary prayer at night. In other words, his pm or his tahajjud

00:38:21--> 00:38:34

while she was sleeping in front of him, and when the winter prayer was yet to be preserved, he would awaken her to offer her winter prayer. So I actually don't want her because they had a very small room.

00:38:35--> 00:39:16

You know, the problem is I sell him the harddrive I share the rim of Ayesha was a small room. So sometimes when she would be sleeping in front of him, he'd have to tap her to move her legs to allow for him to perform his salute his frustration. So in this Hadith, we learned that if someone is sleeping, before a worshipper, his salad will not go wrong, that it's permissible to pray with someone sleeping in front of us. So if somebody is there in front of you, and you are performing your Salah, so for example, that can be your sutra, it can be your barrier that could be in front of you. They're not moving, they're just still and they in front of you. There is no harm in praying in

00:39:16--> 00:39:24

front of them, because you're not praying to them. They're just acting as your sutra or your burial. They're just sitting there there's no harm in that at all.

00:39:25--> 00:39:45

We learned this in this hadith and we also learned that it is desirable to awaken your family members for optional prayers for nowhere for me to wake them up for the evening for the optional prayers and we learn that you you offer the one can offer the water prayer before the budget purchase before the budget pray you can delight

00:39:47--> 00:39:49

Hardee's even Armada the Allahu anhu Allah.

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

The prophet SAW us he said the prophet SAW Selim he said that he was SOPA bill Witter. He said hasten to offer the witr prayer before dawn and the Hadith is found

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

In a Buddha would and soon and ultimately, also we have Hadith, Jabberwocky a loved one who Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, He who apprehends that he may not get up in the latter part of the night should observe the water pray in the first part of it. And he who is certain to get up in the last part of it, he should observe the winter at the end of the night, because solid at the end of the night is attended by the melodica angels, and that is better, and how does the Spanish Muslim, so it is best to perform and delay your winter prayer to the third part to the latter part of the night, especially with the presence of the melodica the angels, for those

00:40:42--> 00:41:24

who are in regular habit of performing the winter prayer consistently, and let's say for example, you slipped through and you forgot, or you slipped through your the night, and you weren't able to get up for the winter pray, then you can pray it as you can pray it as a make up prayer as a misprint the next morning or the next day. But in doing so, we learn from the sun now, in the Hadith that is furnished a Muslim, that instead of praying it, that instead of praying it in an odd number, you would pray in an even number. So for example, if you normally pray three and by the way, three is better than praying one and more complete.

00:41:25--> 00:41:49

If you normally pray three, and you want to make up the witr prayer of last night, the following day you pray for you pray for you pray in an even number, because it is only Witter, because of the fact that it is the last prayer of the night. And the last prayer of the night is done in an odd number is done in an odd number.

00:41:52--> 00:41:53

Likewise,

00:41:54--> 00:42:43

the last prayer of the day is which prayer is the mother of prayer. And the mother of prayer is the fourth. The fourth of mockery praise how many units it's three. So we find that the last prayer of the day is three of the fourth press. It's an odd number. And the last prayer of the night is an odd number being the winter prayed. The question arises, are you allowed to perform? Are you allowed to perform any prayers? After you have prayed the water pray? there is difference of opinion amongst the men. Whether you are allowed to pray a sooner pray after whether or not the correct opinion is that you are allowed sometimes to pray. A Sunnah pray after Salah to Witter.

00:42:44--> 00:42:49

Okay, there is a hadith whereby the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:42:50--> 00:43:35

we find instances where the prophet SAW Selim he offered to the art of sadhana pray or nowhere fail in the sitting position after the winter pray. So therefore this goes to show that just because you've prayed your winter pray, it doesn't mean you can't pray. swindler pray. It doesn't mean if you happen to get up at night. And you want to pray extra you can pray extra. Some people think that now fellas, that's it. I have prayed my router pray. Therefore I cannot pray any prayer because I've prayed my will to pray the correct opinion. And as I said, with all due respect to the alignment, there is a difference of opinion. But we do have an aeration. That states that this is the case that

00:43:35--> 00:43:38

you may pray to units of prayer after

00:43:39--> 00:43:56

the Salah Luthor, but there is to be no two winters in one night live with tiny few Laila means that if you have prayed with her once, and you prayed again, he didn't have to pray you didn't have to pray with her again. Let's say you've prayed for the first time.

00:43:57--> 00:44:41

Let's come to Ramadan and Ramadan when you pray your Torah with the Imam. Some people they pray with the Imam and the sooner is to pray with the Imam until he has until he has finished because if you pray with the mmm until he has finished, it will be recorded for you as if you have prayed the entire night with the Imam or it will be recorded for you as if you have prayed the entire night in terms of reward and virtue for that night. So now the Imam you pray with him with it. And he wants to continue so he's paid for example eight, he sprayed his three return. Now you want to pray more during the night. You want to get up in the third part of the night and pray more. What you can do

00:44:41--> 00:44:45

in this case is you stand up when a man says Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullah to the right.

00:44:47--> 00:45:00

Then you can then stand up, not say you're asleep and try one more car to make that last unit make it an even number. Now, your last period was even so then you can

00:45:00--> 00:45:15

Add in lots of two's and then when you have finished your night prayers, pray one Raka as wizard and that's it, you have now prayed you with a prayer only once and instead of having prayed it twice, so, these are a few

00:45:17--> 00:45:28

points related to the woodshed pray. Yes, the sooner is to recite after Al Fatiha if you're praying the water pray, the sooner is to recite Al Fatiha. And then

00:45:30--> 00:45:46

subbase Mara because Ls rutile Allah after the Fatiha of the first Raka and in the second Raka Kalia you healthcare freuen and in the third row kar poldhu Allah who had an in one narration, Paula had an Falak and an S all in one Raka.

00:45:48--> 00:45:55

But that is soon it's not a must for the winter prayer to be accepted. Also with regards to the wizard pray

00:45:56--> 00:46:39

the sooner is to pray if you're praying it three for example, is to pray to units, say a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah to the right and to the left. Then stand up, say Allahu Akbar and pray one Raka and do your yet and do your download Sharif or Ibrahim iya, Allahumma salli, ala Muhammad, Allah Allah Muhammad, salam, Aleykum Selam Aleykum to your left, that's one way of praying with her pray. The other way of praying with her pray, is to pray three units without sitting for the first Tisha hood, or without sitting in the middle of the two of the three units. So you pray right through to the very end with only one teacher who would only want to hear it and one Ebrahimi or the

00:46:39--> 00:47:12

road and saying, Allahu Allah, Allah, Mohammed, Mohammed and then saying Assalamualaikum to you right, then saying a ceremony come to your left, that is the Sunnah with regards to the winter prep, there is also a dryer do I want to add a note is that you say when you get up from the third unit from the recording of the third unit from central panel of vilavi and you come back up and you say Allah Medina Freeman had a headache wife in a female wife in a female faith

00:47:13--> 00:47:41

with a will and a female overlay, etc, etc, the do I do? I cannot you can look it up. And you can do it either before you go into the record position or after the record position, okay, there is flexibility with regards to this. So these are some matters that are related to solid emammal. Now we Rahim Allah who to Allah, He has also included selected

00:47:42--> 00:47:58

as and he says, the merit of the optional or the Doha prayer now to have prayer is a prayer that one prays between fudger prayer. Okay, and between the Horta prayer so there is a hadith

00:47:59--> 00:48:04

beautiful Hadith Hadith Abu huraira Allahu Allahu Allah, that is found in Bukhari Muslim.

00:48:05--> 00:48:34

He says, Our Sani Holly Lee sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we see me filati I mean, Alicia her. Were rakata up to her. Were an otira cabela and or could, he said that mahali you Helene is your best friend? Allah subhanaw taala says about Ibrahim alayhis salam. He says what Allah who Ibrahima Holly Allah. Allah took Ibrahim as a very close friend.

00:48:36--> 00:48:57

My Holly Allah His Messenger saw Selim directed me to fast three days of every month, who's saying this about hora de la one. He says my best friend may in the province of Salem, he instructed me to fast three days in every month meaning the 13th and the 14th and the 15th of every lunar month.

00:48:59--> 00:49:29

And he said the three days of each month and to observe to record of do have for noon, that's to record of the Doha pray and to offer the winter prayer before going to bed, three things, okay, three things that we should safeguard and that is the first three days of every month known as the white days am will be because the moon is a full moon on the 13th and the 14th and the 15th of every lunar month, okay.

00:49:30--> 00:49:38

The sky is illuminated with the whiteness of the light of the moon.

00:49:39--> 00:49:42

And then he said about the law of prayer and spoken about the word prayer.

00:49:43--> 00:49:59

There is another Hadith, Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he used to offer the full rocker of prey at the full moon and would add to them whatever Allah wished. So when it comes to the number of records, that can be true

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

That can be for that can be. We have narrations up to eight in another Hadees. We have

00:50:08--> 00:50:11

mohana, the daughter of Alpine arugula one her

00:50:13--> 00:50:31

regular one saying I went to all those messages alive silent on the day of the conquest of Mecca, and he was taking a bath at that time when he finished. When he finished the bath he offered eight or a cart of optional prayer and this was during the Doha. Now

00:50:33--> 00:51:15

there is difference of opinion regarding Salah Schrock hosoda to Shahrukh and Satyagraha Some have said that the two units that you pray after the sun has risen. So you know, as soon as that you pray, one says, let's say for example, you prayed your budget in the masjid. And you said they're remembering Allah recited for add words of God until the sun has risen. He waited about 15 minutes until the sun is at least a species length above the horizon. And then you perform to record some scholars, they refer to these judicata as being the solid of sunrise selected.

00:51:16--> 00:51:18

Some say this has started

00:51:19--> 00:51:25

because it's the four noon so they they say these two units referring to the same prayer.

00:51:27--> 00:51:40

But when we look at an analyze the swing closely we see that they are two press, one for having prayed directly after the sun has risen, based on the Hadith, whereby the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who said

00:51:41--> 00:52:03

that whoever prays fudger in Jamal in congregation and he sits in his place where he prayed and he remembers Allah until the sun rises, and then he prays to units of prayer. It's as if he has performed Hajj and Umrah complete, complete complete. Tim, Tim, Tim.

00:52:05--> 00:52:08

Another Hadith. Okay.

00:52:09--> 00:52:59

That has been included in the chapter. The time for the Doha prayer is the heritage site, even Atacama Viola one I saw some people offering to her in the in the early for noon, and warned them saying these people must know that offering salette a little later is better allas messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Salah to Bina hanaa Torah mabou Alpha soil, he said the pray salat, of repentance, those who repent, the Select of those who are repenting is to be observed when the young ones of camels feel the heat of the sun. In other words, when it becomes very hot. So the very fact that he's recommending to pray the high pray when the ground is very hot. That goes to

00:52:59--> 00:53:08

show that there are two pris, there is a prayer of solitude and there is a prayer called solid rock.

00:53:09--> 00:53:14

That's what supports this argument that there is a recommendation to pray solitude

00:53:15--> 00:53:17

at the latter time.

00:53:20--> 00:54:05

Another Sunnah that is important is to hear to the masjid to hear to the masjid in Malmo. Now we are here Mahalo to Allah. He has a chapter, the inducement to offer to here to the masjid. So when you enter the masjid, you should greet. You should offer the greeting How do you offer the greeting by ensuring that you have prayed at least two units of prayer before sitting, whether they be the first prayer that you pray with the Imam, whether they be the sooner prayer variety by that you pray, for example, you're going to pray your fudger sooner pray in the masjid or at least pray an optional or a voluntary two units of prayer to thought. Okay, before sitting so the Sunday is not just just to

00:54:05--> 00:54:23

enter the mission and to sit down. That's incorrect. If going against the sooner the sooner is once you've entered the masjid, that you pray two units of prayer before you sit. Okay and then you sit down and wait for the Imam or if there's no prayer you can go on with your business.

00:54:24--> 00:54:42

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in the Hadith Phantom bahaya Muslim is at the Hala hadoken al Masjid fell ageless had the usili Raka attain that when any of you enters the masjid he should offer to the cart before sitting and the Hadith is found in Bukhari and Muslim.

00:54:44--> 00:54:58

Also, we have the hadith of jab that will be a loved one who I came to Alice messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was in the masjid and he said to me off to the art of prayer Sally, rock it

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

So again, it's a pseudonym aka it is stressed upon. It is

00:55:05--> 00:55:13

important to pray this prayer. However in saying that it is not fun. It is not worship, it is not a compulsory prayer.

00:55:15--> 00:55:58

Even when now we Rahim Allah who to Allah He has a chapter entitled the excellence of offering to the heart of voluntary prayer after ablution. So, there is a sweetener, which is known as soon as we will do, so that after you perform will do, you can pray. It's legislated to pray two rakaat two prayers of Sunnah and the Hadith, that he includes the hadith of Abu whatever the loved one who Allah, Allah, messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said to be learned or your loved one who are that tell me about the most hurtful act. In other words, one which you deem the most rewarding with Allah you have done since your acceptance of Islam, because I heard the sound of the steps of your

00:55:58--> 00:56:01

shoes in front of me in general.

00:56:02--> 00:56:18

So Bilal, even the robot and why then are the products are selling the process sell and he heard his footsteps in general. So, therefore, he will be in general and the prophet SAW Selim wants to know, what is it that you were doing that entitles you or that has entitled you?

00:56:20--> 00:57:10

For gentlemen, and he said, I do not consider any act more hopeful than that, whenever I make will do or I took about a time he made will do Oh, he had to hustle or to hustle. He might also in an hour of night or day, I would immediately offer salad for as long as was destined for me to offer. So, the sooner is also if you can to pray to the crowd. of soon after solid after the performance of will do which is known as rakata or attain in Budo. And Allah subhanahu wa taala knows best sallallahu wasallam about a canal and the b&m Mohammed Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
