What is the meaning of the verse hafeez? Ooh, Arlo solloway, it was sold out it was thought that guard all of the prayers, especially the middle prayer,

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

this verse isn't suited to Allah and Allah subhanaw taala says Happy Lu Allah Salawat. Happy Have you loo arella means to diligently maintain something, it basically conveys the meaning of arare. to look after something, and to ensure that it is done well, it is done properly, and also that it is not wasted. So guarding the prayer means that a person ensures that he prays on time First of all, secondly, guarding the prayer means that a person makes sure that they pray consistently, that they're not skipping their prayers or missing their prayers deliberately or accidentally. And then thirdly, barding. The prayer also means that guarding your mind your attention in the prayer, so to

00:01:00--> 00:01:47

ensure that you are focused, to ensure that your heart is attentive. guarding the prayer also means that you are performing the Salah properly, that you're not being careless about your will do or about your recitation or about your sajida or any parts of Salah. And then finally guarding the prayer also means that you protect the reward of your prayer. You make sure that you don't do things after a sauna that will waste the reward of your sauna. So have you boo r la sala worked diligently maintain your prayers, and especially was selected wasco the middle prayer and the middle prayer refers to solitary hustle that pays special attention that you make sure that you pray the Salah on

00:01:47--> 00:02:32

time you pray it well, you pray it properly, and you don't follow it up with deeds that will waste the reward of that Salah. In these we learn the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah the Exalted has made five prayers obligatory if anyone performs will do for them well, and then offers them at the right time and observes perfectly their record and also the submissiveness the who sure in them, then it is guaranteed that Allah subhanaw taala will pardon him. And if a person does not do that, then there is no guarantee that Allah subhana wa tada will pardon them. So if we want the forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala then we have to guard our prayers. In another Hadees

00:02:32--> 00:03:16

we learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a person returns from performing their prayer while only a 10th part of it, or a ninth part of it, or an eighth of it, or a seventh or sixth or a fifth or a third or a half of it only is written for them. Meaning the reward for that sauna is relative to the attentiveness and the focus with which a person has performed that prayer. How well did they guard that prayer that is going to determine the level of reward that they will get. So have you loo and Asana Watashi wa salatu wa wakulla nahi carnitine. And all of you stand before Allah as devoutly obedient, meaning stand before Allah, like you are His servants, so stand

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

with humility.
