So it is the 14th of June 2020 to Sunday evening and we are going to continue with our essential thick class that we have on Sunday evenings. And we've been, you know, doing it every single Sunday for the last
little while since a pandemic started except during the month of Ramadan.
We will continue with the chapter of Juma on Friday, and inshallah we'll try and keep it a little bit shorter. Today we'll finish off the chapter of Juma we'll open it up for some q&a. And then we will try to wrap up a little bit earlier than the hour so we won't go for a full hour.
And that's because I want to be able to make it to the mustard for selected marketed in sha Allah.
As of right now all of our programs are still being done online. So we are still going to live stream all of the programs. The
the ability to use the masjid is restricted to prayers only at this point in time. So we are not running our programs from the masjid which is why we still live stream them. And also it makes it easier for everyone to attend. If we were going to have the classes in the masjid, there's a chance of you know gathering happening as in, you know, larger congregations
in without respecting the physical distancing, but also less people would be able to attend so we're still live streaming all of the classes and shout out to Hannah. I know some of you have been asking about Juma as well. So inshallah, when we do start up the Friday, July prayers, I will continue to livestream those as well. So that people who are not able to make it to the masjid can benefit from learning something from that to Jumana lecture as well. So we'll continue we started the last Sunday, talking about Juma Friday, Friday prayer, the Juma prayer the time of the Friday prayer. We learned about the hookah or hooked up to have Jeff as it's known the Friday speech
the aquaflex health and how it's delivered with the sitting in between the two and how the football begins the prayer so are comes before the prayer I should say. As opposed to their each prayer the hook was afterwards in the Juma it comes before it. So those are a few things that we learned last week and this week we're going to be continuing with We'll begin with when does a person catch Juma prayer so when does a person arrive and knows that they've caught the Juma prayer if someone comes late and they missed the whole football, does that mean that they miss Juma or did they catch Juma? So we see here that the Friday prayer is to have a gap. Right? It's two and a guy two units of
prayer. And it's to be done in congregation so we can't just pray Juma on our own the person can't just say okay, I'm all alone. I'm gonna pray to him on myself. That's not Jamaat Juma is prayed in congregation. If someone who is not obliged to pray the Friday prayer
does not come in, attend the prayer. Or if someone has a valid excuse, like we mentioned last week for not being at the Friday prayer for example, they might be traveling, then that person is to pray. Vote prayer, okay to pray, vote prayer, a Florida. So for example for us right now, as you know, we were going through this pandemic, and we're not able to congregate, we're not able to go to the mustard, we're not able to stand in large gatherings. We, therefore are not permitted to or we're not obliged to perform the Juma prayer. And so we were praying Salatu thought we were praying the prayer on our own or as a family at home.
Now if someone is going for the Juma prayer, unable to make it to the Juma prayer and is mature and falls in that category of you know, being someone who the Juma prayer is an obligation upon then, if they come to the Juma prayer, and they catch one Raka so they join the prayer
and they catch the record in the second Raka. So when the Imam is bowing down, and everyone is seems to be allowed in, if they come in the prayer and they join, they say aloha club and they join the prayer they bow down and they say
Hello via Nazim and then the mmm says send me Allahu neeman hamidah that person caught the record of the second Raka that means the person caught the Juma prayer. Okay, they were able to make it on time for the Juma prayer. If someone comes after that, then they should pray for that kind of for God because that means they missed the Juma prayer they missed the entire hookah, and they miss the entire two units of prayer except for the Tisha hood, except that sitting position at the end. So, anyone who came
to the Juma prayer, who has to pray the Juma prayer it's compulsory for them and catches or even if it's it isn't compulsory for them, but they end up praying the entire prayer or praying one book is the second book and they caught the record of the second Okay. Then that person caught the Juma prayer as in their their prayer was, you know completed. But what about the longer and narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever catches a Raka of the Friday prayer has caught the prayer. Okay, so whoever catches that, okay, one of the Friday prayer of the Juma prayer has caught the Juma prayer. Okay.
Prayers before and after the Juma prayer. So how many sooner or is there some prayers that are prayed before and after the Friday prayer? What about the long run reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever makes hosel whoever takes a shower bath and comes to the Friday prayer then prays as much as Allah has written for him and then remain silent until the man finishes his hookah and then he prays with him. forgiven for him will be whatever he did have minor sins from that day to the previous Friday, plus an additional three days we took this Hadeeth already. So here we see an example of praying Sunnah prayers before the Juma prayer. So the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advises with seeing this hadith of Abu right out of the 11. If a person comes to the Juma prayer, and they've taken a shower and they come in, they're ready. And they pray as much as Allah has willed for them to pray. As in you, you pray as much as you are able to pray. Right? That doesn't mean that there's a specific number to be prayed, or a specific amount that needs to be prayed. What it shows us here is if a person has the ability to pray to God, and they feel to pray to God, then that's good if they feel to pray for and they pray for them that's good if they pray six, or they pray eight. And of course these are in units of two. So they pray to and they
pray to then they pray to some people come early for the Juma prayer and they pray to Africa constantly over and over, they'll pray another to another to another to until the email arrives. Right? That is what is meant of this heavy that someone prays as much as Allah has willed for them if Allah willed for them to pray to God and then they sit down and they start reciting pseudo Touka for example, then that's sufficient for them. Okay, but we have to remember to pray to heya to the masjid as well when we come into the masjid for Juma okay.
If the Juma prayer is taking place in the masjid
and during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sometimes they prayed in the masjid most of the nibbly and sometimes they prayed out in the distance, you know a bit further away past the market place in Medina.
So whenever they were praying in the congregation in the masjid the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged that they pray there to hear to mustard as well as the companions of the abattoir and entered into the masjid while the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was delivering his Friday hookah and he came in and he sat down and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pointed at him singling him out and told him to stand up and to pray, right to pray his to have to hear to mustard.
Under the same topic, prayers that are to be done before and after the Juma prayer as for after the Friday prayer, if one wishes he may pray either for an icon or two, okay, after the Juma prayer if a person wishes to do so, okay. Of what the Allahu had reported that the Messenger of Allah sent along it, he was sending them said, if one of you praise the Friday prayer, he should pray for it. After it, right he should pray for it after it. That's in one narration. However, we also see that even our model de la hora and Homer said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not pray after the Friday prayer until after he had left and he would then pray to America in his home. So the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you'll see that this is like
The common thing especially in Medina and Mecca after Juma people, the locals they get up and they leave. Right and it's from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to pray the some of the prayers at home. And this is why even now during this pandemic, you know, while the massage it has opened, we are still encouraging people who do come for the prayer. When we are done the compulsory prayer don't stay in the masjid slowly get up one row after another or one person after another and leave and pray your son that prayers at home. Okay, so even our little dilemma Angela says however, the prophets of Allah either you or someone would not pray after the Friday prayer
until after he had already left and when he got home, he would pray to Africa in his house.
What is the etiquette of Friday? So what are some of the etiquettes of Friday's recommended for anyone who intends to attend someone who has intention to go for the Friday prayer, it is recommended that they follow certain things that are mentioned in this Heidi so Emanuel fallacy, or the alarm is narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, No one makes oversold, takes a bath on Friday and purifies what he can and puts on some oil of his oil so puts on some oil for example in your hair does your hair or you know you do your beard or you put some oil on wherever you need to on your hands lotion. Basically, nowadays, we call it lotion or some people
might still be using, you know, some kind of oil like coconut oil or coconut milk or something like that, you know, putting it on your hands olive oil. So the profits in the long run I think it was send them said that no man makes a fossil or takes a fossil on Friday and purifies what he can and put on some oil of his oil and apply some perfume from his house, right puts on some perfume and then goes out without coming between two people goes out and doesn't disturb two people doesn't become an issue amongst two people. It doesn't create any problems doesn't you know step over people as they're going for the the Friday prayer and then praise what he has what has been written for him
to pray, like we saw in the previous Heidi's praying as many as you want before the Juma prayer then remains quiet while the man speaks. So during the hook, but that person stays silent and listens and pays attention.
But he will be forgiven for what he did between that Friday and the previous one. So if a person does all of these things that are mentioned in the etiquettes of tomorrow, so getting ready putting on some oil or lotion, you know, putting it getting ourselves ready, then putting on some perfume, right? grooming ourselves properly. Going to the masjid not being an issue for anyone not getting in the way of other people, not disturbing other people as well. And then reaching the mustard and praying to God or praying for DACA or parent praying six or eight or however much is written for us to pray
and then listens to the cookbook and prays with the Imam then that person it's written for them to be forgiven of their sins from that Friday to the previous one. So the sins that we've committed from Friday to Friday.
Also, besides for the long run narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said for whoever makes a hustle on Friday, where's the best of his clothing. So here we see another example of more etiquettes putting on the best clothing that we have. This was not mentioned in the previous Hadeeth
Where's his best clothing applies some perfume if he has it. So if you're able to apply some perfume you apply it
then comes to the Friday prayer without stepping over the necks of the people. So remember, not disturbing to people, not not bothering anybody as you are going to the prayer and as you are entering and walking through to find a place to pray, then remain silent. When the Imam comes out until he is finished with his prayer, then it will be an expiation for whatever occurred between it and the previous Friday. So again, we see that the sins of the person will be forgiven from this Friday to the previous Friday. So within the last week, also, who are the alumni narrated that the messenger of a loss of a long video send them set. When it is Friday, there are angels upon every
door to the mosque, recording the first to arrive. And then the next and then the next right so there are angels at the door of the masjid and they are recording their writing down in the scrolls. The names of the people who arrived from the first to the second and the third and the fourth and the fifth, and so on. When the MN sits so when the man comes in and sits on the member getting ready to deliver the sermon
The scroll is rolled up. And they come and listen to the remainder. So the angels will roll up the scrolls, and they will no longer be recording the name. So the people who come after the mm comes and sits down, their names are not recorded in those scrolls. Okay, their names are not recorded in those scrolls. So as soon as the Imam sits the angels roll up the scrolls, and they join in the hopes but as well.
They sit and they listen. They come in, they listen to the reminder, the one who comes early is like the one who sacrificed a camel. So the person who comes early is like the one who sacrificed the camel. Next is he next is he like one who sacrificed a cow, then it is like the one who sacrificed the sheep, then it is like the one who sacrificed a chicken. And then it is he like the one who sacrificed an egg. And that's showing us the rewards for our sacrifice. So those who come early, they get a huge reward. It's as though they gave more for Allah. So Allah gave them more in return. Right? They made the sacrifice of coming early. So when you come early, your names are written in
the scrolls. Also, the reward is that that is great and huge like a camel at the time of the Sahaba of the llama and home was one of the most prized possessions one of the most expensive things that you can have, like even a you know, sometimes a ring or a jewel, a piece of jewelry or something that was given to, you know, a spouse from a husband who was was getting married, like from the groom to the bride. Sometimes that was less value than a camel. Right? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned here,
that the one who comes first those who come earlier, they get a greater reward. And then those who come after the reward is a little bit smaller like that of a cow. And those who come after that, then it's like, the reward of a sheep. And then those who come later, it's like that of a chicken. And then those who come towards the end, just before the event begins, it's like that of a
cake. Right? A smaller, much, much smaller reward
of the cloud that asked a question, we'll get to that afterwards. Actually, I'll just take it right now since we're talking about it when you mentioned that I'm sitting in the scroll being rolled up does that mean as soon as the e&m sits or does it mean when he goes to the member and sits before the second event is called exactly it means when they when mm a sense steps on to the member and says lm to the people and then sits down
getting ready to begin the football. Okay, while that second event is usually going on, okay, so as soon as the not when the man comes to the masjid but when the Imam sits on the member and from the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam is that when the Imam comes that mm comes right when it's time to begin? Right? People sometimes criticize Oh, the email isn't here. Well, that's from the seminar, right? Is that the the meme comes right when the meme is to begin, so no one disturbs you know, the thoughts of the meme or you know, disturbs his, his focus before delivering the hookah he doesn't get busy and answering people's questions he doesn't get overtired or burdens from you
know a lot of things happening. So this is something that you know, a lot of people don't understand that like well where's the Where's the money? Where's the boundaries not here. You might just be sitting in his car parked in the parking lot. And from the sum that we see the profits and a lot more I need to sell him comes in and goes straight to the min button sits down. Right.
Okay. Recommended words of remembrance and supplication on the day of Friday, first of all, praying for and conveying peace upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, very often on a Friday.
It's narrated, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stated the most virtuous of your days is Friday. So Friday's one is the most blessed day of the week. On that day, Adam was created and on that day, he died.
On that day, the horn will be blown and the people will be dazed, right, the horn will be blown to end the world. Right, that will be the announcement to the end of the world. When the horn is blown. It will be on a Friday as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then says continues to say, increase your prayers upon me as your prayers will be presented to me. So increase in salah and send them upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a lot more slowly. I know Mohammed. Mohammed can also lead Darla Ibrahim ahead earlier on he might never have even legit or alarm or somebody was sending robotic Allen abena you know anything.
anything of the sort that you want to say from the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sending Peace and blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Then the people asked, they asked the Prophet sallallahu I didn't even send them all messenger of Allah. How will our prayers be presented to you when you have passed away? Right? They're asking him, when you pass away, how is our sauna and send them upon you going to reach you when you've already passed away? And so he said, some Allahu Allahu wa sallam, Allah has prohibited the earth from consuming the bodies of the prophets. Allah has prohibited the earth from consuming the bodies of the prophets, which means that the body of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all of the profits or loss of head of water Allah has been preserved
should say have been preserved.
And so whenever we send salah and send them upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam like right now when you hear someone says Mohammed and you say, suddenly, Allahu alayhi wa sallam that reaches the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, slow Lu la hazelnut.
Right? Send Peace and blessings or send salutations upon me, wherever you may be. And this is a lesson for all of us. Sometimes we know someone who's going for Amma or going for hedge and we say, please go and stand in front of the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and send my my salah and my send them to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Well, really, we should all be reminded that we can do that wherever we are, we don't need to actually be in Makkah. We don't need to actually be in Medina in front of the grace of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sending Peace and blessings upon him from so and so person from this person and that person so people go
then to have oldest and then the Prophet sallallahu I need to send them also mentioned, whoever sends Peace and blessings to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he responds to that 10 times. Right as in the response to that is tenfold.
And there's a number of Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with regards to sending Peace and blessings upon him on the Friday. The second thing that is recommended, in terms of things to say, on the Friday is the recitation of sawed off to the calf of who sorry, the recovery of the Aloha and reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, For whoever recited sort of took off on Friday, it will light for him a light between the two Fridays as in there will be more for that person from this Friday, until next week's Friday, if I'm going to read sort of through the class, right, so there will be new
between that person so the person who makes intention to recite sword or to cast this coming Friday, and then has intention to recite it the following Friday, Allah subhanho wa Taala will put nor as in there will be goodness in that person's life throughout that week, okay.
Thirdly, increasing one supplication, on this day, hoping to catch the special hour of response to our do hot. So there's an hour on the Friday as the Prophet sallallahu Edda. usnm teaches us that it is made up of 12. Right? The day of course, is made up of 12
hours. There is one hour in which no Muslim asks a law except that Allah gives him what he asks. So there's an hour on Friday, when do I is accepted that no Muslim asks from Allah except that Allah gives them what they're asking from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues to say, and seek that time in the last hour after the afternoon prayer.
What is the afternoon prayer?
also is the afternoon prayer. So after also, there's a timing there and there are a number of narrations. So the point there is anytime on the Friday tried to find this hour, he tried to find this hour and of course it is, you know, most of the scholars lean towards the last hour of the day. So the last time before motivated on the Friday. Okay, so Friday after Juma after salata, Lhasa on the Friday, that is a time somewhere between there and the end of the day when Allah subhana wa jal accepts the death of the believer that asked from them from
the Friday prayer is to be in the larger is to be done in a large communal
or larger communal mosques. So you'll notice that in some countries that you go to
mainly Muslim majority countries, you'll notice that some of the masajid will not have the smaller machines will not have Juma prayer and the larger ones will. And so they will not hold the Juma prayer in the smaller machines because you can't get a larger congregation. And we see here that it's encouraged for us to gather in larger numbers, and not together in smaller numbers. And this is why during this time, this pandemic, you know, we've advised people if you can pray the Juma prayer and there's no congregation taking place, then pray. So lots of thought. And people said, Well, what about you know, if we just pray Juma at home? It's not actually advise to pray in smaller numbers in
small, different areas. It's advice to come together and to pray one large congregation
of your loved one has said that people would come on the day of Friday from their residences and from the outlying villages. So the profit center sorry the
setup the logline, as she mentioned that on a Friday for Juma people from the their homes would come out, but also people from the neighboring you know, towns or the neighboring villages around the city of Medina from one hour. They used to come out to pray in congregation with the rest of the Muslims despite being a little bit further away and having you know, another having the ability to congregate somewhere else. They did not used to congregate in the smaller massager they used to come and pray with the prophets on a longer day he was sending them Zakat he said the people of the Himalaya
used to perform the Friday prayer with the prophet and they came from a distance of about 10 kilometers from Medina. So the laser for those who don't know is the meat court of Medina. Okay about it. So the main part of of Medina the halifa. The meat court is the place that you go to when you're leaving Medina and you're going to Mecca to perform your job to perform your job. You will stop at a Masjid in Buda halifa and you will put on your home or you will make your intention from that spot whether you have your home on already or not. You know some people wait till they get there some people will put it on in their hotel, and then they will you know get on the highway and
you drive a little bit and then you stop at this Masjid. It's about 10 kilometers away from mustard the next week on Friday. The people from the Himalayas I used to come all the way to Madina munawwara to pray Juma prayer with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I bought even a beer driver said
the people of Mina used to attend to the Friday prayers in Makkah, the people of Mina. They used to attend the Friday prayers in Makkah.
Which is really interesting because minute itself, you know, for those of us who go for Hajj or have gone for Hajj, you know that walking from minute to the Haram in Makkah, it's a distance to walk, we usually walk from there to our hotel, right and then from there either walk, you know, after resting a little bit to perform at the loss and come back. But so Pamela, the people of Mina used to go all the way to
Mecca, how haddam the caribou and pray their Juma prayer and then make their way back, which shows us something really interesting. These two walk a pretty far distance. They didn't have air conditioning, they didn't have the tunnels that we go through nowadays as well. Right? We go through tunnels, they used to walk over and around the mountains. So kind of law. Imagine that. And so we have it really, really easy compared to how they had it during their time. Of course, some of them were riding on camels, some of them are riding on horses.
Even how Joe states
in trophies volume to page 55 it is not reported that the profits on the long ladder usnm ever gave permission for the performing of the Friday prayers in any of the other mosques of Medina or in any of the nearby villages. So we've been talking about a lot he is the one who wrote the explanation to say hi Bahati. Okay, even Hi Joe, very famous scholar. He says we have not seen a report of the prophets and along with us and them giving permission for people to pray Friday Prayer Juma prayer in any other Mosque
of Medina. So within the city of Medina, they were not, you know, given the permission by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. To pray Juma.
within any of those smaller massages, except for most of the Navy, and he says nor in any of the nearby villages, okay, so whatever villages were neighbouring Medina that people would come to muster the Navy or come to the open grounds and pray in congregation with everyone else. So this is one of the reasons why we discourage people to pray Juma in small numbers in scattered different places. Okay, lastly in this chapter is what happens if Reed falls on a Friday? What happens if Reed is on a Friday? Okay.
If the day of Reed falls on a Friday, then the obligation of the Juma prayer is dropped. For those who attended the read prayer.
They have come out of the lava and said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed that reads prayer and then gave an exception. And so he gave an exemption
for the Friday prayer saying whoever wishes to pray. Juma may pray it. Okay. whoever wishes to pray may pray it. So the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam, he prayed that prayer and then gave an exemption whoever has already prayed read because it's Friday, you don't need to come for the Juma prayer. However, we see that the Prophet sallallahu either he was sent him still prayed the Friday prayer. Okay, so it's preferred for the Imam to hold the Friday prayer for those who wish to pray the Juma prayer. Okay, so the Eman even though he prayed the read prayer in the morning, it is. See that's the hard part of being an email everyone else has gone chilling and partying and having fun
with their families today buried right there enjoying and traveling and going and eating and you know, relaxing, but the email needs to come back to the masjid and be there to lead those who have to pray Jamaat, remember not everyone made it to the each prayer. Right and then there are some who made it to the prayer but still want to pray the Juma prayer so the Imam has to be there to lead them in the Juma prayer if Juma falls on or if he falls on a Friday, okay.
I've got a bottle the lover and reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to festivals have occurred together on this day of yours. Read and jumar Okay, two festivals have occurred on this day. For whoever wishes, this will suffice for his Friday prayer. So he mentioned that there needs prayer whoever wishes this read prayer and hookah is sufficient for you on this day on a Friday and we are going to perform the Friday prayers. So he's advising people if you still want to come or you're able to come or for those who want to come in to pray the Juma prayer, then you can still come because the men will still be leading the prayer. That brings us to the end of
the chapters, the chapter of Juma Friday prayer. We'll open it up for a few minutes for q&a. If anyone has any questions.
Feel free to type that in and ask.
That's trying Try not to take too long because I do need to head over to the mustard. I'm just gonna pull this aside
to be able to see
me a second.
Go that way I can see all the questions.
If anyone typed a question earlier, it's going to be hard for me to scroll around and look for them. I'll do that right now really quickly. But if you can just retype your question
What is the best place to get the best perfume in the GTA?
I don't sell perfume. But to be honest, I don't buy any perfumes here in the GTA.
I usually buy all of mine abroad, whether it's in Medina or mcca, or the UAE
I don't buy any perfumes here.
So I really couldn't tell you I really don't know. How long
does it mean they don't get the Friday prayer reward is squirrels are ruled and the person's name is not written. No, that's not what it means. Remember, we saw it afterwards that those who came earlier got a larger reward that of a camel and then those who came afterwards got a smaller reward that of a cow. And then those who came afterwards got an even smaller reward that of the sheep. And then those who came even later they got the reward equivalent to a chicken and those who came even later they got the reward equivalent to a
egg, right so the it's referring to the rewards those who came earlier.
Their names are written as an honor for coming early to the Juma prayer.
How is depression being explained in Islam? Okay, that's a loaded question. That's going to take a long time to explain. And I really don't have the time for that right now. It's a little bit off topic. So I'm not going to answer that right now.
Is there a Hadees that you can pray Juma? If three people are there,
brother Fazal, stop trying to find loopholes.
there's no minimum number. Okay, there's no minimum number you see that in different method. It mentioned there's mentioning a 14 mentioned of 10. There's a mention of three. So that Mmm, oven and one other person, but these are all recommendations from the scholars. Okay? Juma itself was not prayed in small numbers, it was prayed in large numbers. However, the scholars look at it and say, Look, if you're, for example, traveling or you're somewhere in a city where there's no Masjid and you want to pray Juma and you are a minimum of three or a minimum of 10, or minimum of 40 people, then you can do that.
is there a small mustard near, if there's a small mustard near my workplace, should I still try to go to a larger mustard that's far?
You see, we in North America, we don't really look at it as going to a smaller mustard or bigger mustard because we don't really have as many massages as they did during the time of the Prophet sent along. It was seldom or even now in a Muslim majority country.
Having said that, you also need to consider the time that it takes you to go from work to pray and back. However, the reward for going to the larger congregation, even if it is further, like you're saying,
is greater. Why? Because there's more distance that's going to be covered in getting to the masjid. So you're getting rewards in the distance travel, for traveling to the masjid. And then traveling back from the masjid, you're getting that much more rewards. Plus, you're getting your prayer that you're praying, multiplied more because of the amount of people that are praying in that congregation. So we should try to go to a larger congregation if we're able to, okay, if we're able to.
Okay, it's a question here, the prayer times on the iccm website matches the times the prayer that is held in the mustard.
Okay, so I think you're asking, do the timings of the website match the timings of the prayer that are being held in the masjid? I do believe so. That's the point of it. So the website, the app and the masjid usually the prayer timings are in sync. Otherwise, what would be the point of having the prayer timings on the website different than the timing at the masjid, okay. However, just as a small side note, because of this pandemic, and because we've been away from the mustard for so long, I would double check with the masjid or when you're registering for the prayer, whatever respective prayer you're registering to attend, just check the timing that is listed there when you do
register, because you know resources are being put in various different places right now those who are usually looking after the website and looking after the clock and the mustard and so on. are busy doing a lot of other things right now like checking temperatures and making sure people have carpets and mats and masks and coming and going from the masjid in orderly fashion. So everyone is a little bit busy with other things. So it may happen that there is a little bit of a difference. So just check when you do register to come to the masjid the timing for that prayer that you're registering for.

You know, may Allah subhana wa tada and make it easy for you to pay it back on time and in full
