To publish on a Saturday where suddenly Embry riddle, aka the 10 million Sandy of coho coli, my brothers and my sisters said, Marty, come over to LA he will got a cat.
It is Friday night, October the first 2021. And
we have the orange theme going on. First off, because of autumn, also, you know, significant yesterday, with regards to
remembering and learning about the indigenous here and subpanel I grew up with a lot of Mohawks in Ghana, woggie. And they were very respectful. And in fact, the people that would defend me as a Muslim whenever some of the Irish and Scottish that we went to school with
sort of stepped out of line. So some how to law
you know, it's important for us as as Muslims to understand the history of the lens that we live in, and to respect not only the lens we know as Muslims, we are to respect the land that we live on, and the world that we live in, but also the people that we live with, right, have respect for one another and
try to understand each other as well because the best they're the best person to call to the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Of course we see what Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran.
But in addition to that,
in order to be effective in Dawa, as we see in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that we have to be people who understand one another. We need to understand who we are giving Dawa to who we are interacting with, who we are talking to who we live with our neighbors and so on and so forth. So we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make it easy for us as Muslims, to be as effective as we possibly can in our download by submitting first of all to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for he is the one who controls the hearts and we are in no position to
feel that we give Dawa or invite others to Islam. Rather, it is Allah subhana wa to Allah who controls the hearts and opens the hearts of those who he wills and seals the hearts of those who he wills.
So we carry on with our class on the etiquettes of visiting the masjid. And
we took a few points last week. Just to recap, we looked at an IU on her daughter massage at Lehman I can assume so.
The prohibition on attending the mustard for those who have eaten garlic or onions or leak or anything that really has a strong stench or smell like cigarettes or even body odor. If we are not clean. Maybe someone came from work or something of that sort. We also took the part of this chapter that discusses his job to attempt to either massage it, the encouragement to arrive early and be on time when attending the prayer in the masjid. What we're going to start with today in sha Allah to Allah is unless you are on a sauna at the horseshoe or in West sakeena. Walking towards the masjid and to the masjid or any Masjid that we go to with short with sincerity but tranquility, I should
say with tranquility, and
and focus, right.
Why? Why do we need to do that? Well, when we arrived to the prayer, we should not be arriving to the prayer when we are huffing and puffing. We don't join us online. We're like
no, we don't do that. As believers we walked to the Sala patiently, calmly, right with tranquility and we get to the prayer and we begin our prayer focusing is what the scholar says very difficult to focus when you were rushing to the prayer. And so when you are, you know, your mind is rushing, your heart is rushing your body was just like in very quick movement and motion and you arrive to the soul Allahu Akbar, like you start thinking what prayer my praying? Did I even like do I even have a loo? You know, what is it and you start to sometimes forget, you might join the prayer and you pray and you don't even know which god they're in and then Sala finishes and you're like, Well, I have to
make up one or two or three o'clock. I'm not really sure. And so it's important for us to come with a peace of mind to come in a tranquil sort of manner and to start our prayer focusing on that focusing on the fact that we're standing before Allah so how do we tie it up? We see
Hades agriculture, Abu Qatada of the Aloha and where he says,
been a man No, no, no Sunday man Navy is on longer Allahu wa sallam. So we were praying with the Messenger of Allah with the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we heard the ruffling, right or this noise
of men or people joining the sauna.
And so when we finished the prayer, right,
profits on a long ladder, US alum asked mersch at knock on, right? What's going on? Like what are you guys doing?
And so they told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is their agenda in Asana. We were rushing to get to the prayer. We were rushing to attend the prayer. Call Fela to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, don't do that.
When you either potato masala valet can be Sakina when you're coming to the prayer, then come with tranquility, be calm when you're going to the prayer.
From a direction for solo woman Fattah, come 13 more. So whatever you have caught of the prayer when you arrive, then pray and whatever you missed of the prayer because you were late. If you were late, then just make up for it. So this teaches us the importance of not rushing to the prayer, taking our time coming in tranquility, being patient, being calm, being focused, when we get there. Focus all about start your sauna and be focused in your prayer instead of focusing on getting oxygen and you're short of breath and you don't know what to do and you're just like huffing and puffing and like sweating and you just don't feel comfortable and good at all. Okay, so it's important for us to
focus on our sada in that manner in a way that we are calm and cool and at ease with Allah Subhana what we also see in another Hadith hadith of regret over the long run, or he says Sameera todo sobre la he's on a longer na usmma a boon I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying
he that ogema to Sala Fela to this una what to dimension time Shawna y la como Sakina he says either ottima de Sala when the karma for Salah has taken place, right? The karma of prayer among model was about a shed one era in lumbo eyeshadow Anna Mohammed was
hired Asana to hire a little fella by the comet is to play the kamati sada walk
in love more when you hear that usually people like LS starting let's go and they start to rush to the prayer right rather than profits and along it was send them says when the comma for Salah has taken place. Do not come to the prayer running or rushing, right running.
Rather come to the prayer walking while I lay comas Sakina and have tranquility in your in your walking as in be at ease has that stickiness in your method of walking to the mustard. From a direction for solid Lu 1/3. tack on a Timo same statement as the Prophet sallallahu it was animating the other Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says so whatever you caught of the prayer then pray it right if you come in there in the second car, then join the prayer and pray and whatever you missed of the prayer because you came late then just continue and make up for it afterwards. So these are two headings that show us the importance of coming to the prayer at ease
the first one says
data for either potato masala it comes second when you're coming to the prayer. The second one actually says that the iqama has taken place. So usually like I said, when we hear the comma we're like oh my god, so that was about to start like, like we need to go now. And so people rush rather the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us not to do that. Now let me extend this to not only taking it easy while walking, but taking it easy while driving I have seen Mashallah. A lot of articles, so many things as we are coming to the prayer, especially around the area of the masjid. And it's really sad, but I'm gonna say it. I've seen so many people at fudge of time I remember you
know, one morning
A brother was coming down the street, and the light to turn left turned red but the light to go straight to a still green. So he went straight. And then after you cross the intersection, there's a sign that shows no u turns allowed. And what do I see not just one brother many times, not only at fudger many times people go straight Muslim Brothers, go straight pull a U turn where there's clearly assigned for no u turns, pull the U turn, come back hanger right and head over straight to the masjid. My brothers and sisters, we are to come to prayer at ease. We are not so here's the thing, when you are rushing or we are rushing to the prayer that way we are actually disobeying the
command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because he tells us for LA calm this Sakina come to the prayer calmly, you are making an effort to come already so your reward is there. Don't worry, even if you arrive and the prayer is done and hamdulillah you made the effort to come and you miss the prayer. Just pray whatever you've missed the profits and alongside of us and them said 1/3 to comfort him whatever you've missed of the prayer then make up for it. So pray it so if a person is rushing to prayer, first of all they're disobeying the command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam by rushing and breaking that rule of the road now the road traffic safety or Highway
Traffic Safety Code or whatever you want to call it in Ontario and from Quebec so we call it la de la route
the rules or the laws of the road
so some handle on what we're doing in addition to not following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and disobeying Allah Subhana way to add it because when we disobey the prophets and along with it to send him his advice, we are by extension disobeying Allah subhana wa tada so in addition to that, not following the sun disobeying Allah subhana wa tada we are breaking the law which is also disobeying the law so how is Adam because we are to obey or respect the laws of the land that we live in. So long as they don't force us to denounce Islam
right so hamdulillah come to the masjid this setting for highly calm this setting in for LA come this city in LA come this Sakina like we can't say it enough because you see things all the time. Like a brother was complaining to me just about a month ago I was telling my wife this you know
about how you know, things happen on the road all the time. You know, someone coming to the masjid cuts through the Tim Hortons bypasses the lights hangs right? on Allah like what are we doing? You know, what are we doing? Are we supposed to do that? No. Are we supposed to run to prayer? No. Can we walk with a quicker pace? Yes, but wok, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us not to run, fell out to hurt the sound do not come and you are running to the prayer, right? So don't run to the prayer. Take it easy, be at ease, and you'll join the prayer in sha Allah who Terra Alcala who some Allahu Allah He will send them up either akima to Salafi by n will emri Lydia Mila nurse of
our even Allah say, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions you know in the second Hadith, if the if karma has been called as in the prayer has begun.
Even then, don't rush. Even then don't rush.
And you know, at some people like I need to be there, I need to be there. As we all need to be there. I have, you know, examples of times I was coming to the masjid to lead the prayer. And I know that I'm early, and brothers are cutting me off on the road. They don't they don't know it's me that like cutting in front and I'm like wash on lots of water come, I'm going to leave. I'm going to be the Imam of the prayer, delete it. So the prayer won't start before I get there. And we're early. I suppose a lot of people
have the line or the reward for being in the front row is great. But it should not come at the cost of putting other people in harm's way.
And think of it this way my brothers and sisters look under law look under law should something happen on the road.
And we are penalized for it with whatever punishment
like is that really something that we want to do? Sometimes someone could take the life of another person while driving in the rushing, right they're going too quick breaking the speed limit doing things that shouldn't do. It's not worth it. My brothers and sisters so please take it easy on the roads and shot and blah okay.
I remember when we were in Medina you know you the bus dropped you off from the University at the beginning of the grounds of Masjid and never we now sometimes we get there in the bus you know it takes us time to arrive and so now you need to walk it's like a five to seven minute walk just to get into the doors of mustard another way then you get into mustard and nibbly and now you need to walk another five to seven minutes to get to the gym because the mustard is so big right and sometimes in that process like you would end up missing three four indica of the prayer come to dilla right you try your best and if you miss out then you make up what you missed. And
the next thing we'll learn in sha Allah Allah is my you're calling me that Dora are in the mushy Illa Sala What should we say when we are walking to the masjid? Well from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would say and this is in the Hadees of Abu Dhabi. It is reported by Abu Dawood or him Allah
which is also mentioned
by email Muslim, Abu Dawood and Shakeology, Bernie rocknrolla. graded it as savvy as authentic and also email.
Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he left to go to the masjid for a prayer he would say Allah geography call it the new word geography lesson in overall what geography seminary knew or what geography but sorry Nora.
Nora, what am I mean wah wah German folk the more or woman tatty Nora? Allah hum clini newer or Allahumma
are allama What are vim Li Nora? Okay.
What is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaching us to ask for nor to ask for blessings from Allah subhana wa tada here let's translate it you're going to the masjid What do you say Allahumma Jain fee will be Nora Allah put more in my heart. What are Alfie Leeson in WA and place nor upon my tongue? wa jal fee summary Nora and place nor in my ears, right in my hearing. Was your annual fee bustle you knew it all and place nor in my sight?
What you're on your whole fee Nora What am I mean wha and place nor behind me and in front of me? What's your unmin foty Nora? Woman taty Nora and police nor above me as well as below me. A lot of them are Fini Nora are a lot of them. What are vim Li Nora? Allah grant me or bless me with North low UCLA. Isn't that amazing? Every single one of us wants nor right. Nor like the brother or nor the sister because it's a name that we use for men and women not nude like the light that is shining in your face right?
But no, you're like the glow that Subhanallah you know people say oh, there's a glow on that brother, that sisters Pamela something amazing about them. And it's not necessarily a glow. It is.
It is something an aura. An amazing aspect of this brother or this sister that you recognize and you say Subhana Allah and it's not something negative. It's not something bad. It's not something you know, like that. We think in our minds of someone of the opposite gender. No, it's Subhanallah this person is connected to a lot. This person's heart is linked to a lot. This is a person who is maybe from the Olia as in from the people who are loved by Allah subhanho wa Taala because they love him so much, right? This is someone who recites from the Quran, who learns the Sunnah who implements a Sunnah, you know, things like that someone who spends long hours at night long hours at night,
right? It could be long hours of standing before last penny to add up or making such to a loss of bandwidth, or making dua to Allah subhana wa Tada. Right, or someone who comes to the masjid early, someone who says the door are going to the mustard someone who recites into after making Rudel someone who is kind to their parents, someone who's kind to their neighbors, it could be anything, Allah Subhana Allah puts nor the person who recite surah to cough from a Friday to a Friday right? These are all things that we can use or do to obtain and acquire more nortal from Allah Subhana Allah more blessings from Allah.
So my brothers and sisters recite this door when we are making our way to the masjid
And a loss of handling data we'll put more in our lives when we have more in our lives. And again, we're not talking about any brother or sister in particular. When we have nor right blessing from Allah Subhana Allah, there are things in our life that become easier for us and the challenges and difficulties of our life become easy upon us. They may seem hard and difficult for others, people who look at us or people who recognize what we're going through. To an outsider's eye it might seem difficult, but to the person who's going through it is easy and peaceful and calm and they're connected to a lot. So remember that when we ask Allah subhana wa Taala for nor we should do that
seeking nothing from anyone and only from Allah subhana wa
Alright, the next thing that we'll learn in sha Allah to Allah is a dwara render the whole Masjid we're in the huji min. Do when entering into the masjid and do when leaving from it? Well, it is encouraged, advised that we as Muslims say a dua when we enter the masjid First off, Allahumma salli wa sallam Allah Muhammad wa ala Annie Muhammad Allah, le EverWeb are hermetic and when we leave the mustard a one masala selama Allah Muhammad wa ala Muhammad, Allah in the Luca min for the lake Okay, now where do we get this from Colorado School of Law he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, either
dukkah dokumen Masjid folia cool when one of you enters the masjid then say a lot of them are definitely aware but automatic or Allah open for me your doors of mercy. Allah him a family of words or hermetic, you're coming into the mustard What do you want? You want mercy? What blessings you want goodness from Allah subhana wa Tada. So you're entering the mustard, Allah aboa. teak, right? Think of it as doors of mercy from Allah Subhana Allah Allah opening up in front of us.
And this Mercy is coming out right? Allahu Akbar, Allah come up along most definitely a boa Matic as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, What either hot or cold. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and when you are leaving the mustard or exiting the masjid, then say,
Allah in the end will come in public. Right? Allahumma inni as Allah will come in for public, asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for his father, for his, you know, blessings, right?
These are things we should be doing consciously, but
subconsciously. What I mean by this is it should be such a habit for us to say it when we're going into the masjid or coming out of the masjid that we don't have to make an effort to do it. But we consciously are aware that we're seeing it because we're consciously aware that we're asking Allah Subhana Allah for his mercy and blessings. Okay, we're in the abbey there are a whole lot. So as we dealt with Ahava in another narration.
It's mentioned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said either, Docomo Masjid fell for you suddenly Marlon nabee when one of you is entering the masjid then send blessings or Peace and blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from Leah will then say a lot metalli above or hermetic for either Cora Jeff and Jaco and when you're exiting then say a lot of money as Luca mean for the LEC.
Now while we are entering and exiting the masjid
It is also found in the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam that one says rules will be learned allowing him will be wedgie he will carry him whistle ball and he called him Mina Shay banja regime and this is found in a hadith jovetic if you had either Abdullah ignore
ignore Laos or the Allahu and Homer. In hadith of Abdullah bin I would live in a house or the Aloha home and Homer and in Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam that the Messenger of Allah the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and now who can use that fella msgid call that when he would enter the masjid he would say Rue de la de la veem will be watching. It was so funny he called him ministry, on your regime. I will be loving him will be what he will carry him was so funny he will
respond he will khadim ministry volunteers
pledging to say that when we're entering the masjid so you can say that and listen to Allah homophobia, blah blah hermetic.
Next thing we look at is
how do we enter do we enter forward? Do we enter backwards? Do we enter sideways? Right? We enter with a right do we enter with our left?
So it's duck Lima rajul. Sorry, is that team original alumna or in the dehulling mustard? Well, you saw or in the whole genome is encouraged and preferred in our Deen. According to the Shetty, the dean and the way the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to enter the masjid with our right foot
and to leave the masjid with our left foot. Why? Well, it is encouraged to do that when entering the masjid because entering into the masjid is a place of honor. It is a Masjid. And so it's a place of Rama, a place of mercy, a place of forgiveness, a place of submission, a place where only Allah subhana wa tada is worshipped well and then sad that he fell out of the room a lot he had only Allah Subhana which Allah has worship there. So entering into the masjid should be a place that we enter with our right foot. And so you enter the mustard with your right foot, because you are entering a place that is the most honorable places that we find on the face of this earth. Right? The most
amazing, most blessed, most sincere, most genuine, most authentic, most clean, most Marshal, lots of articles, everything right? All the good qualities come from the masjid. And so, from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that you enter the masjid with your right foot.
Wearing the Guru Ji Minh who,
when we exit the masjid Taka Deen original eleuthero the fearly sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he and Merkin radle Masjid do an EVO shut off that exiting the masjid first of all was done by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam with his left foot, but also in your mind when you think of why should I exit with my left foot and not my right foot because entering the masjid is the most blessing of places. And so anywhere you go outside of the mustard is not as blessed and as noble and honorable as being inside of the mustard. Therefore we exit the mustard with our left foot. That doesn't mean that being outside is a terrible bad, evil place. No What it means is that outside of
the mustard is not as beneficial and rewarding as being inside of the masjid. And so when we enter it, we enter with our right foot. When we exit it, we exit with our left foot very good. In a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is about the Allah and her narrates. She says canon nimbyism along Latin canon abuse and among other US alum the prophets on a long ladder he was sanlam he would your ijebu at tm one he would be amazed and and particular and punctual with doing things with his right things that were good right starting with his right whether his right hand or his right foot or doing things to his body with his right so for example, she says that the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would start things with his right if he it's an hour early he was putting on his footwear whether his shoes or slippers right putting on his slippers, he would start with his right foot.
And we're gradually here which is grooming yourself right? He would groom himself right start by combing the right side of your beard, and then move your way over to the left. or start by combing your right side the right side of your hair. And when we remove our nails, what do we do we clip the right first, right so we're cleaning So we start with the right and then we move our way over to the left and come back to the right, right.
Well, to hurry fish and equally and purifying washing himself. He would wash the right side of his body first and then wash the left side of his body. So start with the right side washing the right side and then wash the left side of your body. That's the wave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
I think we'll end there in sha Allah Tada. Okay, just gives us a few minutes to take some questions.
Yeah, well in there in sha Allah.
data and if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask them now in sha Allah and then we'll continue from here next week.
Just write the date, October 1 2021
panela remember when we're in 1999 and we would say I wonder what the year 2000 is going to be like.

By making your way to the masjid because we still have another 25 minutes. Am I correct? Yeah, 25 minutes until the Salah starts. So you can make your way over in sha Allah who Tad and you can practice preparing yourself by making whoodle and coming to the masjid seeing your indoor art. When you come to the masjid asking Allah subhana wa data for ignored. You can practice entering the mustard with your right foot and seeing the dua.
what else do we take? What else do we take? Yeah, that's that's pretty much it for today.
So put that into practice, sha Allah will see all of you soon. All right, I don't see any questions. Seems like everything was pretty straightforward. These are all things that we pretty much already knew. We need to be reminded whether cared for in the content value meaning right to last Henry Tyler tells us whether remember and be reminded for in the vichara the remembrance 10 for meaning and Vicar is also the Quran. The Quran benefits us right it is known as a vicar. So we encourage one another to,
