00:00:01--> 00:00:08

So it's either on my Facebook and my YouTube and Instagram as well. And the masjid YouTube

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

on 44 different places and you just type my name in. That would but you'll find it

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

Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam who identity he'll get him out of trouble salatu automatise league proficiently suddenly via city

00:00:35--> 00:00:41

Melissa have a couple of Cody Brothers Sisters sit down when it comes to walking

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

so as I mentioned yesterday if there's any sisters if you want to come over into the main prayer hall feel free to do so or if you want to open up the doors divided in the middle then you can do that today in shot long time we're going to be covering the second use of the clock and the second CIFAR of

00:01:04--> 00:01:09

I know that issue at night you're way ahead of it third Jos 100 Illa

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

Yeah, right there just

00:01:16--> 00:01:23

but both follow along with days alone, right because hunger love these guys are on like next level speed down.

00:01:25--> 00:01:30

In sha Allah Allah as we go through the second use of the Quran.

00:01:32--> 00:01:38

we recap how we covered swap and Fatiha yesterday and some parts of the beginning of Sudoku.

00:01:40--> 00:01:49

And we took a couple of examples, and eventually this trend throughout the Quran, and you'll see it today as well as Montana.

00:01:50--> 00:01:57

We spoke about a couple of things that pertain to sort of micron and the reward.

00:01:58--> 00:02:07

But we did not talk about a whole slew of title, meaning that it is titled the swab of the cow or the chatter the cow.

00:02:09--> 00:02:18

And that is because of the story of Mossad agents and how the people been oversaw in that followed him. They

00:02:20--> 00:03:04

went on Saturday, his setup went away long story short, because I didn't plan on getting into that today. But it was it was mentioned. So Musa alayhis salam he left his people he went to communicate to Allah subhana wa Tada and he Bennett saw eel they ended up building molding out of the jewelry that they had an empty or hollowed out structure of account and they begin to worship it and of course there's there's more that we can go into which I've covered in the past and that's why I don't go over it. I like to choose different verses every single year. And so this is something that could be found within the soil as well because someone is asking, why is it titled?

00:03:06--> 00:03:20

So, today in shallow data we're gonna look at we'll begin with first number 165 Verse number 165 of salatu wa some have more to add that says Jean

00:03:21--> 00:03:25

will be then Sima here, Duffy Lumia Dooney

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

the

00:03:30--> 00:03:31

BT

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

one lady

00:03:39--> 00:03:41

101 Lady, you know one of

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

your own in our

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

material, he just

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

no more machete he

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

also had a tiger says what in us?

00:03:58--> 00:04:24

There still are some people who may get defeat from Indonesia and your hipbone. I don't care who Pilla there still are some who take other or other than other ones either. And placed at the same level as Allah azza wa jal, and they love them as though they should add. And they love them as they should love us.

00:04:28--> 00:04:53

Right, and we touched upon yesterday, very briefly, when we mentioned right people who pass away and pious people, and sometimes they're even worshipped in certain countries, countries around the world, we see this happening. We see it happening as well, where you know, sometimes whether it's within the Muslim communities or you know, in other faiths, pious, righteous people,

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

and worshiping worshiping, they shouldn't be worshipping a Muslim cannaboids Allah but they worship

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

other than Allah

00:05:02--> 00:05:15

and Allah Subhana Allah says, whenever we are on leadin avalable easyHotel as with any knowledge me, I will abolish that even if only the wrongdoers those who worshipped other than Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:16--> 00:05:31

couldn't see the horrible punishment awaiting them for their actions in worshipping other than Allah, it would certainly realize that all power belongs to a lot, and that Allah is indeed severe and punishment. Now when we think of

00:05:32--> 00:06:04

the life we live, and worshiping also kind of went to add a lot of the time as I mentioned, we can't see Allah so we don't think of Allah in that sense. Like, we don't come up with an image of Allah subhanho wa taala. And as we get older, a lot of the time children will question and say we want to know what Abass habitat looks like, we want to see a lot. Yes, we will get to see what's going to add on once we reach paradise shot a lot to add. But in the meantime, we try to understand the muscle can which added through his science,

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

through his name, through His attributes, through what he does what he provides what he restricts, right, what he withholds from getting to this as well. Things that are not good data refrains from giving to us. And so ALLAH SubhanA, Allah to Allah is the one to be worshipped. But at times, we think we're sure Allah in our minds.

00:06:29--> 00:06:33

And this can be challenging for someone at times,

00:06:34--> 00:06:37

where they feel what Allah subhanho data looks like.

00:06:38--> 00:06:54

And because they can't figure that out, they resort to worshiping other than a hospitality. These are to worship, what does makes sense to them what they can see tangible, right, what's physical in front of them.

00:06:56--> 00:07:25

And signs that they are worshiping other than Allah Subhana Allah doesn't begin immediately by just shifting from a one to something else. We saw this in the example of the people of know how they have set up, slowly transitioned from worshipping Allah subhana wa Tada to respecting what the pious people did in the past, right, and then trying to strive hard for how the pious people used to worship of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:07:27--> 00:08:08

And then they brought the idea of making idols or statues to remind them of those pious people. And they used to have the statues outside, and so people would walk past them and see it and be reminded, and then they decided to bring those statues into the place of worship. And they put them in the back. And so when people would come into the place of worship, they would see it, and then they would be reminded of how high of a word how righteous they were, and how, how, you know, much they cherished certain aspects of those people's lives. So they became more connected to that. And then they said, you know, what, why don't we just put the statues or the idols in the front, so that

00:08:08--> 00:08:16

when we worship a wall, we are reminded of their sacrifices to how righteous they were, and we could inshallah become just like them.

00:08:18--> 00:08:24

And what happened over time is that Shavon we're talking centuries, whisper to them, to try to.

00:08:26--> 00:08:39

And eventually they started to worship pious people that passed away. And so Shavon doesn't begin immediately by, you know, turning us off from ALLAH SubhanA wa, tada. Shannon's job is to whisper to us.

00:08:40--> 00:08:41

Whisper, whisper,

00:08:43--> 00:08:55

Whisper, whisper, right, like that constant sound, you're always hearing. And it's annoying, and you start to push it away. But eventually it keeps telling you something like someone tells you

00:08:56--> 00:09:11

you know, people pick on me because my nose is big, right? So they say your nose is big, and I never felt like my nose is big. I said nobody else was good, the size of your face, like okay, and then another person comes says you have a big nose like

00:09:12--> 00:09:24

that. I've heard that before, you know? And then you know, it's another friend is you have big nose like okay, I get it. And then you know, your children tell you you know, your nose is big, like I know, everyone tells my nose.

00:09:25--> 00:09:31

I'm big and eventually start to believe it and then eventually a day comes I have a big nose.

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

You never

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

felt wings. It never bothered you before. You never even thought twice when you look in the very you never thought to look would be like oh that's it. See how big it is? No, you never do that. But because so many people are always telling you the same eventually feel like you have a big house and you affirm it by saying to other people, I have a big nose, even though you never felt like it was big to begin with. And so that's

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

An example of how shade on works on us, right whispers to us slowly but constantly, whispering, whispering whispering to get us to believe something. Now,

00:10:13--> 00:10:38

one of the reasons why I wanted to mention this today is because I was thinking of this with regards to raising children, our own children. Sometimes we don't tell them enough that they're beautiful. Okay, sometimes we don't tell them enough that we love them. Sometimes we don't tell them enough that they're good at what they do, that they're nice that they're honest, that they have courage that they're breathing sounds, we don't say that enough to them.

00:10:39--> 00:10:49

But what we do say to them is, you're being annoying. raising your voice, stop doing this, right? You're laughing? Because it's true, right?

00:10:50--> 00:11:22

Right. You know, yes, you're always banging your feet, you're slamming the doors, stop doing this, stop doing that, you're like this, you're like that you're like this, you like that. And we constantly tell them, so they start to believe eventually, that they're like that. And that's a mistake that we suffer all the children that are listening, I am going to apologize to you on behalf of right. And I will apologize to those with as well. We don't mean to. Sometimes life is just too frustrating.

00:11:23--> 00:11:34

There's too many things going it's too difficult. It's right to recognize that you're our children, and you mean the most to us, right? Children?

00:11:35--> 00:11:52

Are you sitting next to your father? And he'll say yes, you are the most valuable thing to me. And when I say thing, we include the human beings, right? That we we don't say it enough, but we cherish each other so much for granted that they're with us in our lives, right.

00:11:53--> 00:12:17

So we need to say the good things that without our children to them, so that when they grow older, they believe that I am courageous, I am brave, I am strong, I am smart, I am good looking, I am beautiful, I am strong, and the qualities we you know, find and see within our children. But if we don't tell them

00:12:19--> 00:12:19

that they will grow.

00:12:21--> 00:12:22

I'm a troublemaker.

00:12:23--> 00:12:26

I cause trouble. And then in school sometimes.

00:12:27--> 00:12:55

What happens is other friends, the friends are like, Well, yeah, and then they get challenged by their friends. And that's shaped on working on us as adults, not allowing us to raise our children the way the prophets selected. Remember, he said that you'll be learning on your own after surgery upon a run only a small whoever believes Adana the final day, say that which is good or remain silent. How many times do we say bad things to our children.

00:12:57--> 00:13:33

And we should stay silent. Now, there is the need to discipline children or to speak to children. And there's a way and a method that I think every one of us has parents, we sometimes get lost in the method of correcting our children, how it's supposed to be done according to the weight of the prophets, a lot of it to send them which is with good words, lower control center, you know, advising them nicely, speaking to them nicely sitting with them being their friend, the prophets on the wall or southern was friends with friend of his time.

00:13:34--> 00:13:40

That's why they were so happy to go like when there was an expedition when he was traveling, they would want to go and try.

00:13:41--> 00:14:03

Travel at his time was not like retirement, where you get into a nice air conditioned car where you get into an airplane and you go to another country and you stay in a hotel that's not travel with the profits on welfare and even some travel that his time was, it was difficult, right? It was really challenging, you would go away for months, and you would not come back.

00:14:05--> 00:14:08

Later if you even made it back alive.

00:14:10--> 00:14:12

If you didn't want the journey,

00:14:13--> 00:14:27

back exam, parents of the Prophet some of us being various shows us that they would travel and things would be difficult and they would pass on their journeys and never come back to where they are.

00:14:28--> 00:14:41

So we take it for granted that we have our children and we don't become friends with them and the prophets of Allah Allah it was so it was so close to the children and his time that they would want to leave their parents to be with him.

00:14:42--> 00:14:49

Now that doesn't mean that their parents were bad means that their parents made them love him so much.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

Through their own personal lives, they as the adults the male and female Sahaba it's a hobby at the time of the prophets of Allah I do something

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

I loved him so much. It was I love that their children so much.

00:15:07--> 00:15:16

So it wasn't a hatred towards the parents that we want to leave you and go with someone else. No, it was like, You love him so much. What is it about him that we can love to?

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

So when we talk about worshiping other than apostle

00:15:22--> 00:15:34

those are small whispers that come over time, that affect us, as human beings, and we need to be very, very careful of that. Give it to verse number 168, just at the bottom of the page.

00:15:36--> 00:15:46

From 168 to 173 Awesome hammers. Yeah. Johan nezuko. Naomi Murphy. Oh, we had

00:15:48--> 00:15:55

one at Debbie Ruth, what is she on in America?

00:15:56--> 00:16:02

Be in almost Canada says Oh, humanity. Yeah, you haven't asked everyone

00:16:03--> 00:16:26

who didn't? who hadn't bought you, sorry, Guru mean nothing other than almost 100 addresses to all human beings eat from what is lawful and good on the earth, and do not follow the footsteps of shape on whether your rule Hoopa to shape on the zoo. We're talking

00:16:27--> 00:16:41

in the whole movie in very he is truly or he is truly your sworn enemy. So Allah subhanaw taala says to all of the human beings who no mean fill out the Halon by either

00:16:42--> 00:17:11

eat from what Allah has provided for you on earth, that is halal, permissible, good. halaal being lawful, don't think of halal as only I take, you know, or I eat the meat from an animal that is permissible and it was sacrificed in a permissible manner halaal extends to also purchasing that

00:17:12--> 00:17:15

food in a manner to vote

00:17:16--> 00:17:22

and earning the wealth to purchase that food in a manner that was permissible as well.

00:17:23--> 00:17:41

So when we say eat from what is lawful, first we need to be able to attain it in a lawful manner. Because if we eat chicken that was hand slaughtered and hamdulillah and everyone says this is halal, our Muslim Brothers Sisters serving it to you.

00:17:43--> 00:17:45

But you went and you stole it from them.

00:17:47--> 00:17:55

Then even though the meat itself is heroin, It's haram for me to eat it because as I stole it,

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

even though

00:18:00--> 00:18:48

in and of itself, it's holiday. So attaining something, and this extends to not only food But here Allah subhanaw taala specifically says eat from what is lawful. Now eat, consume what is good for us. Halon by iba things that will benefit us and this is Ramadan, and we know Al Hamdulillah we break our guests on sometimes things that are not for us. And I know the brothers and sisters are setting up the phone now maybe we should tell them to block their ears a little bit for the next few seconds. And sometimes we eat things that are too greasy. Now there's nothing wrong with eating something greasy, but eating too much greasy foods is not good for us. The same way eating too much

00:18:48--> 00:18:53

dates is not good for us. How did Imam Malik rockin Allah pass away?

00:18:54--> 00:18:55

Who knows?

00:18:59--> 00:19:01

Yeah, I know, you know. And else No.

00:19:03--> 00:19:04

No, no.

00:19:06--> 00:19:07

How did he pass away?

00:19:08--> 00:19:10

He ate too many days.

00:19:12--> 00:19:20

You know, Malik hobo he was he was looking and researching a must a question.

00:19:22--> 00:19:31

And he was researching all night he had dates, you know a bunch of dates next to him and he just kept eating while he was searching, he would take the dates and eat and who is reading and searching and

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

what the scholars were asked one, they would leave

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

their books or their or you know, until they found the answer to that question.

00:19:43--> 00:19:57

They would they would take it seriously not like just let the person go. He was researching so much and he was so focused on trying to find the answer to what he was asked about that he ate so many dates

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

to the point that it

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

Harvey passed away.

00:20:02--> 00:20:13

So he overdosed on dates, not intentionally. But it goes to show us that even things that are good for us need to be consumed in moderation.

00:20:16--> 00:20:30

The same thing for many other things like coffee, or tea. Is that something that's permissible? Well, going back many years, the scholars initially would say that coffee is permissible because it's like a

00:20:31--> 00:21:17

but then they realize like a little bit of something a little bit of this is okay. Right, certainly may be permissible, we are allowed to have, we're allowed to happen as long as we don't overdo it. So if you eat too many, some also, there's just maybe potatoes or minced meat or something in it. It may harm our health. Right? If you eat too many chips, it can harm your health. If you eat too many chocolate bars, it can harm your health if you eat too much of anything, even water. I used to say that the oh not eat too much or have too much of his water. Give me one second, I was sitting in an auditorium teaching in Malaysia once I flew to Malaysia, goes teaching there. And in the audience

00:21:17--> 00:21:22

was their use of he is the head neurology.

00:21:23--> 00:21:31

Neurology or cardiology, I think it was neurology is headed neurologist in the country. Right. He's like the top specialist.

00:21:33--> 00:21:40

And it's kind of what he towards and he's like, No, even too much water is dangerous for you. He said, You can flood your brain.

00:21:41--> 00:21:54

And he says, This is what happened with marijuana, they get very thirsty. And because they're thirsty, they drink a lot of water. And they end up because as they fled their brain by drawing

00:21:57--> 00:22:00

they drown their their brain, lava.

00:22:03--> 00:22:05

I can't hear you have to speak louder.

00:22:06--> 00:22:10

And you come closer, and I'm going to talk because it's gonna get very hot.

00:22:13--> 00:22:14

makes too much noise

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

he died.

00:22:28--> 00:22:37

Somehow Well, look at that. So a young boy, he's telling us there was a competition of who can drink and the winner of the competition died because he just kept drinking.

00:22:38--> 00:22:44

Right? So even something that we think is not harmful to us too much of it is no good.

00:22:45--> 00:22:48

So ALLAH SubhanA, Allah is telling us eat what is lawful for you.

00:22:50--> 00:23:32

You've attained it in a halal manner, you're going to respect when to eat it. It's halal for you and so on the beach from what is good and don't follow the footsteps of shade on shaytaan. I was trying to find ways. Like you hear people say, Okay, if we go to a restaurant and you know, bit of alcohol as they're frying my food, the alcohol evaporates immediately. Right? And I know it's a question you're gonna come to me after about, right? The alcohol evaporates very quickly. So there's no more alcohol left in the food. So we should have food. Right? Well, the scholars differ on right that we do differ. But the better thing away from it. Why? Because shaytaan is whispering to us. Why do I

00:23:32--> 00:23:45

have to go to that room? Is there no restaurants available for me to go to? I can go to so many restaurants, halal restaurants owned by Muslims that are not going to use a single drop of alcohol and the food but

00:23:46--> 00:23:50

we prefer to go there sometimes this is what you see people doing and saying yes.

00:23:54--> 00:24:23

What's the point of putting it evaporates immediately because from the alcohol stay in the food. Right? And another thing I learned today, just today, I learned there were two young girls actually four young boys that came to see me two of them. Some two of them interested in becoming Muslim. And they were saying that you know, we want to become Muslim. But one of the things that are challenged with in our home is that our parents when they cook they always use cooking wine

00:24:24--> 00:24:34

and it's because apparently it were game flavor like it removes the media or the you know that wild flavor that you find within beats

00:24:36--> 00:24:39

that would exist don't use the one I didn't know that.

00:24:40--> 00:24:46

My wife might have couldn't cook much and she knows that and she's not happy with it. But she's gonna give me some input

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

give them that as a tip.

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

To the to these boys told them on some halal meat that has no blood in it right? So that's true the non Muslims the most part at least here in Canada

00:25:10--> 00:25:19

have to do say this in Canada This is dreamed from the animals those in particular right so are the method that is used in

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

industry and under the law is better than other places.

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

Then of course,

00:25:30--> 00:25:33

it says in verse number 169 in number

00:25:34--> 00:25:39

one fascia you will enter who are the alimony protocol robot says in the whole document I do want

00:25:41--> 00:25:54

to follow the footsteps of stray dogs. They're the he is a sworn enemy of yours and incites you to commit evil and indecency and to claim against a wall what you do

00:25:56--> 00:25:57

well enter who you are and

00:25:59--> 00:26:04

what you don't the little McDonald's will call you 10 euro and faina lady

00:26:05--> 00:26:21

when it is said to them, what Allah has revealed they replied, Don't you say to follow along has revealed that like No, Allah has revealed we only follow what Matt is saying I Nina.

00:26:23--> 00:26:31

I'd say now what our forefathers used to follow what our parents and their parents what they used to

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

always tell a Muslim youth.

00:26:46--> 00:26:51

Okay, we'll come back to that. Okay. So let's tell it Are you are you

00:26:52--> 00:26:57

most right, the youth amongst the Muslim community children think

00:26:58--> 00:27:13

if we are telling you as your parents as Muslims, if we are telling you something that's wrong, do your research. And you will find that the truth always comes back to what Islam says. So you will always find it wanted to be hopeful to want to shake

00:27:15--> 00:27:57

even if our parents were Muslim, so want to be Muslim. The Quran says, Oh, we're just following what our parents are saying what our grandparents did, and what are great parents did okay, fine. If that's what you think, then go and find what the truth is research. And you will see that that is the truth. So this statement sometimes is used out of context by teenagers, that university students at our time here, and they say, oh, you know, we're not doing anything different than what the Quran says the Jewish and the Christian and anyone else is doing. Right? By following what our parents do. We're just following in their footsteps. I have to figure it out for myself. And so we encourage

00:27:57--> 00:28:23

them. Okay. Ask, what questions do you have? And that's why I like these young boys. They came in today. And they were so particular with their questions. They had everything written out, right, each brother had it written out. And they asked her questions, and they had researched and they had read through the Quran. So like they found what they wanted to know about other religions. And they concluded that Islam is the truth.

00:28:24--> 00:28:38

That was their conclusion. They were given the ability to research their parents allow them to go into research. And then the muscle can went to Allah says, Our Oka home layout a donation and when I tell you one

00:28:40--> 00:29:00

would they still do so? Would they still follow their parents, their grandparents, their great grandparents, even if their forefathers had absolutely no understanding or guidance? Like sometimes we follow people who don't know this is a mistake that we make as Muslims even

00:29:02--> 00:29:10

today, today, what is it? April 3, Sunday 2022 We make this mistake as Muslims

00:29:11--> 00:29:28

here, even within our Masjid within our community, we do things thinking this is the way we always did it. So we shouldn't do anything different. And we look and see what the Prophet SAW longer than us and loved it. And I'll use the example of taraweeh

00:29:29--> 00:29:33

and I love doing ministry and I'm about to probe a little bit yes, what is it is your hand is up

00:29:43--> 00:29:47

you're gonna have to stay right in front of me. You'll be my best student sitting in front of you all.

00:29:55--> 00:29:56

How

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

How do they find out the truth by research?

00:30:04--> 00:30:07

By simply research because the truth speaks loudly

00:30:08--> 00:30:28

as in when you read through other books through other books or Ashton's to other, you know, religious people, the answers you will get will not coincide, they will not be the same as what you feel inside of you remember you and me and everyone we were born upon the fifth

00:30:30--> 00:30:33

fitrah is default mode, you know, when you get a brand new phone

00:30:34--> 00:30:47

and you open it out of the box, and you turn it on fancy cool things. That's the way it was programmed to work, right? And then your mom or dad changes the ringtone from going to dddd.

00:30:48--> 00:30:49

Right? So you changed it.

00:30:50--> 00:30:58

So the default mode that you were programmed with, that Allah programmed to you and every one of us with is the truth

00:31:00--> 00:31:02

that Allah is the one to be worshipped.

00:31:03--> 00:31:36

Right? Now, when you ask questions to other religions, or you research other religions, you will find that it doesn't make sense to you. And when it doesn't make sense to you. It's because you were programmed upon something that was true that Allah is the one to be worshipped. Okay, so anything other than that will not make sense to you. So it's very easy to find out the truth. We just need to worship, we just need to research and you'll find it, Shawn. Okay. But how did that how to research is done? Because you're being raised as a Muslim. Right.

00:31:38--> 00:31:40

So as I was saying,

00:31:42--> 00:31:44

one of the uncles that we get is

00:31:45--> 00:31:48

a Quran, sorry, throughout the month of Ramadan.

00:31:50--> 00:31:53

Did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to pray

00:31:54--> 00:31:55

about are we

00:31:57--> 00:31:59

yes or no? Who says yes, raise your hand?

00:32:01--> 00:32:03

Who says no, raise your hand.

00:32:05--> 00:32:11

The scholars defer to the law. That means we're doing something good. If there's a difference of opinion, then it must be good, right?

00:32:13--> 00:32:16

So the answer to that is when I went like this, the

00:32:18--> 00:32:21

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not deter me

00:32:28--> 00:32:32

Okay, so there's a there's a few things here that we have to mention. He prayed.

00:32:33--> 00:32:35

But first of all, wasn't me.

00:32:36--> 00:32:45

No, I'm over. I'm gonna do one more. And he came into the masjid all over the lava and was the Khalifa. Right? He came in

00:32:49--> 00:32:52

comes into the masjid. And he saw praying in the night

00:32:54--> 00:32:55

during the Ramadan

00:32:57--> 00:33:49

exerting themselves so much that they can't stand any. And so they took rope and they tied the rope around. And the poems that were on the roof, holding up the beads, and making the roof of the masjid the rope and wrapped it under their arms and around their, their torso, to hold their bodies up so they can remain standing. They were so tired and exhausted, they couldn't stand anymore. So they were tying ropes and holding on to things to be able to continue to stand. And he said this is not what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would do. And so they decided that PM, right, the young will lay which is what I used to call it or the prophets of Allah where it was southern Easter break

00:33:49--> 00:34:15

tahajjud during the Ramadan, he was the MLA standing throughout the night. Right and he used to pray this in units of two so 222 and two, and the more common number was eight at our God but he used to recite sometimes in the first Afghan Surah Al Fatiha schooltool Baqarah su Everon and sometimes slower to Lisa imagine

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

MCI

00:34:18--> 00:34:35

and we complain really caching till the email that I give her say too much too long. Take it easy, you know, have mercy on us. Right? Have mercy on us. Yeah, exactly. You take very own. So the prophets of Allah, Allah and he was set up when he was tired

00:34:37--> 00:34:40

and he wanted to continue what did he used to do

00:34:47--> 00:34:51

and know he wants to continue prayer. What did you used to do?

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

You know, when the he would sit down so long

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

As

00:35:01--> 00:35:32

the prophets, Allah God, he would pray sitting down sometimes when he was tired will help to pray sitting down because he prayed sitting down, right? But what we see is the 20 raka that we pray nowadays was not prayed during the time of the prophets on a longer it was set up. In fact, on the first night he came out, and he prayed with the people, right. And then the second night, he came out the second night of Ramadan, he came out and he people, and then the third night he came out, did he come out?

00:35:33--> 00:35:34

He didn't come out.

00:35:35--> 00:35:52

But the people waited, and they were there. They're waiting and waiting. Where's the profits on Lamar Hanson? Why isn't he coming out? Why isn't he leading us in prayer, and they waited and waited and waited and waited, but surely they like got him to come out. And he says,

00:35:53--> 00:36:07

I feel here that you are making where you will make something compulsory upon yourselves if I come out and continue to pray with you like this every single day. And so he went back into his home and he prayed on his own.

00:36:09--> 00:36:37

Now if we think of what Allah subhanaw taala is showing us here, is sometimes we say Oh, our parents grades Oh, we had to be 20 So we're gonna pray 20 Like I was raised praying 20 And I feel weird if I prayed less than 20 Sometimes I forced myself to pray less than 20 intentionally because I'm like, You know what? I don't feel like praying the 20 like my my desire to pray right now because I want to sit down

00:36:38--> 00:36:45

I want to go rest and if you continue to pray, I'll come to you in a second inshallah if you continue to pray

00:36:46--> 00:37:05

because you know, other people are watching me keep going, Oh, how come down is leaving and he's not paying 20 A car? Oh, how come so and so a person is leaving and your friends cod like what's wrong, man? What's wrong week can't break your week. And so you're scared that they're gonna say that about you? So you pray?

00:37:06--> 00:37:11

Are you praying for Allah? Are you praying because you're worried they're gonna say something about you?

00:37:16--> 00:37:31

praying for Allah Hamdulillah. That's good. But if someone is praying because they're worried that people are going to say something about them, then that in its health is doing exactly what we said. Following Shavonne

00:37:33--> 00:37:34

following

00:37:37--> 00:38:03

in prayer, you think to yourself is following check on something that was not following chip on as you're praying, worried what other people are going to say about you, your prayer is for the people and not for our blog. So your title, your pm at night is not for the sake of pleasing the last panel we've had. And this is why I encourage us if you're tired, sit down.

00:38:04--> 00:38:45

If you want to go home rest. What's most important is that we prayed Orisha, we prayed the Isha prayer. That's the most important right? And then the extra prayers Yes, the prophets Allah did them so we don't discourage that. We encouraged to pray more throat when I'm alone, breathing the nights to life of muscle. Palitana puts Baraka in our sleep. He puts Baraka in our food. And we know that because look at how many hours we've gone without food, and how long we're in here. We probably didn't think of it like smell it but we're not craving for it right away. Right? So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has the ability to put Baraka in things so we shouldn't think like oh, I have to do this

00:38:45--> 00:38:56

because my parents grade 20 I have to and this is what our grandparents did and our great grandparents didn't you know so so person's family was a family of mmm so we all have to do

00:38:58--> 00:39:01

what you do for the sake of pleasing yes

00:39:12--> 00:39:18

very good, Abdullah. That's exactly right. If you're doing it for the sake of pleasing Allah, you can pray more than

00:39:19--> 00:39:37

the 20 Okay, going back to the story of the Allah or he called it or coined it totally. Why for Raha is the Raha Raha is like rest, relax, take a break.

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

Are we cold, taking a break?

00:39:44--> 00:39:50

And we think of it like oh my god, we're not taking a break. We're standing we're praying as long it's hard. No, no, it's

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

give you a break. And so you're on camera, or I'm gonna do a vlog where I made it so that people would take a break after four o'clock.

00:40:00--> 00:40:29

at rest, and this is why you'll notice the Imams when they're praying. They do too, and I've got to them to kind of then rest for maybe a minute. Now we do it much quicker because we're not praying as long as they used to pray, they would recite long Raka, right, and then rest, and then get up and pray two more, and then two more and then rest. So that break in between is the time of relaxing and resting, and that's what it was called. Tommy, the prayer that you pray, that includes taking a break.

00:40:32--> 00:40:37

That's how we learn our deen is that we don't just do what we always did.

00:40:38--> 00:41:02

Because that's what our parents did. Even as we need to be careful of this. We need to do what Allah subhanaw taala wants from us. And we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make it easy for us to continue to do that. I mean, there are many things that I wanted to cover today. But I didn't have the ability to get into it. If we just go to verse number 177. And we have 10 minutes until the end then 12 minutes

00:41:04--> 00:41:14

about 1012 minutes. So in verse number 177 I'll just go over it in English Chapa ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, They said goodbye to a loo comfortable and meditative another.

00:41:16--> 00:41:36

Righteousness, better piety is not turning your head towards the right to the left or towards the east in the West. This was because when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada had told the Muslims now you're going to pray towards the Kaaba in Mecca and not towards beta naught this

00:41:37--> 00:41:44

they got a little bit upset. They were like, sad, why is it that we are going to

00:41:45--> 00:42:30

see the Muslims now worship in a different direction. So Allah subhanaw taala, saying piety is not that you turn your faces in a particular direction, when our kingdom, Apostle pan with Alice's rather righteousness or piety are those are the righteous and pious are those who believe in a lot the last day the angels the books and the prophets, and they give in charity, out of the wealth that they cherish, to their relatives, to orphans, to the poor, to the needy, to travelers, to beggars, those who are freeing captives. They also established a prayer they pays a cat they give, sorry, they keep their pledges that they've made, as they said, they're Muslim that are hypocrites they

00:42:30--> 00:42:56

believe they believe, and they are patient in times of suffering and adversity. And in the heat of a battle, they don't leave. When things get difficult. It is they who are true in faith, and is they who are mindful of Allah subhanho wa taala. That's all the time that we have for today in sha Allah, just Akuma level Kailyn for us, this time in brown.

00:42:57--> 00:43:28

We ask Allah subhana wa to annotate or as the last panel to analyze levels of paradise and for dogs. Ask Allah subhana wa to Allah to grant is completed for forgiveness. Love these made easy for this to continue to learn the deen that you have designed for us. Now please make it easy for us that are going through hardships and difficulties and struggles. Remove the hardships from a promise love please make every single hardship a means of our forgiveness and attainment of nearness to you. I mean that either seven or seven are enough.

00:43:29--> 00:43:33

Either 7070 come around to buy or cancel
