00:00:11--> 00:00:12

Not nothing from the left

00:00:14--> 00:00:16

to the left one and he was like me as many

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

things themselves. So we finished session one, like I said, it's a little longer.

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

We are not actually going to talk about we're going to get into the content of the course. The first, the first session was important I feel to give us an idea of our perspective on that, so we understand that properly. Now, we yesterday in the gym I talked about we talked about the importance of soda. Yesterday in the gym, we talked about the importance of soda. So now we're gonna just jump right into the importance of push. Sure why we're gathered here today. Number one, just some basic definitions. What does the word mean? The word for that.

00:00:55--> 00:01:37

It actually means do I actually means linguistically? What do you want to say? Like when we supplicate to Allah We ask Allah for something. That's what so that actually means linguistically. So even as a hadith and worst of all, OBEY Him can ask the process alum Can I do like a min sadati? How much of my job Should I make dedicated to you sending Sonoma Kuan Yew but use the word for that's actually what de Sala means it means do now it comes from the root word which means Sita or which is Sita which means that connection. So it's kinda you see the person when he went to me, Raj, when he ascended to the heavens, and the journey we just talked about, you can see why so that is a

00:01:37--> 00:02:14

connection between us and Allah Subhana Allah because Allah is called the mineralogy and movement the the essential of a believer because when we pray, we'll talk about inshallah, we actually experienced this, this, this feeling that you can't experience any anywhere outside of sauna. So linguistically, sauna means a supplication. Da, and it comes from the word, the root, which means a connection. Now, why do we pray? What is the purpose of prayer? Allah subhanaw taala says no foreign, what are the means for that any degree and establish the prayer for my remembrance.

00:02:15--> 00:02:22

So the reason why we pray is to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:23--> 00:02:58

And what's interesting is in this versus actually when Allah says that a total game Musashi sent out the commander prayer You know, when Musa was given the command of Salah it was actually the same one Allah first talk to him directly. So just like our problem versus send them received revelation of Salah, directly the five prayers directly from Allah. Mousavi said I'm also received directly in a conversation with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah told him and established a prayer for my remembrance. Number two, sama prevents us from sins. So that prevents us from sins Allah in the Quran.

00:03:02--> 00:03:08

He kameena kita Asana in

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

what are the gurumayi

00:03:18--> 00:03:19

matters now?

00:03:21--> 00:03:38

Allah says and recite what we have revealed to you from the book The Quran, and establish the prayer for surely the prayer prevents one from evil and wicked deeds. Then he sees the remembrance of Allah is greater and Allah knows what you do. Now.

00:03:40--> 00:03:41

What's interesting is that,

00:03:42--> 00:03:49

does that prevent us from evil deeds, Allah prevents from evil deeds, but does our Salah prevent us from evil deeds?

00:03:52--> 00:04:03

You know, a man came to the Prophet Solomon and told him about a person he says in the plan, you certainly will name he says that this man he prays in the night you pray that justify your prayers. This man prays to hygiene

00:04:05--> 00:04:07

when he wakes up in the night and he prays to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

But he says that

00:04:13--> 00:04:16

when he wakes up, he's in the daytime he steals.

00:04:18--> 00:04:24

So you see, this is kind of strange. You praise the hedges that night, and he steals in the daytime. You know, I remember once I was

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

in the masjid, in Michigan.

00:04:30--> 00:05:00

And there was next to me. I'm a university and went to Michigan State University. It's a big, big party school. So there's a brother next to me who was praying and we were sitting in line waiting for this. And so I told him that I should MSA that night we had like a piston Detroit Pistons game outing, they bought like 30 tickets or something. And the MSE was going to watch Detroit Pistons game. It was a Friday night, so it was a Friday in the daytime. So I said, you know, like, Friday night, you know, obviously the club scene is big and whatnot. So I told him I knew the brother was struggling a little bit. So I said, Hey, the MC is going to this pistons game

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

You know, you're welcome to join them and go with them. You know, it's inviting him to head on something alternative, depending on what you consider, but it's better than going to the club.

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

So,

00:05:11--> 00:05:21

so I told them, you know, think it gets companionship with the MSA brothers and things. And he actually he told me, he said, No, actually, this is the first line in the message. He's saying, I'm actually going to the club tonight with my friends.

00:05:23--> 00:05:36

It's kind of strange. You're like, You're in for pleasure. But you're going to the club tonight. Just to kind of other brothers. And I was told this man, he, he preached the hedges, but he steals in the daytime. And the person I'm told the man in the room say

00:05:39--> 00:06:05

that what you say about this man, if he is praying in the nights, then certainly that will prevent him from doing what he does, from stealing. So the question is, does our soul that prevent us from sins? But this is this there's it? Absolutely, well, the problem is not in the equation. The problem is in the one implementing the equation, Allah says that prevents us from sin. Now, if we don't pray, the way we're supposed to pray,

00:06:06--> 00:06:16

if we don't have a feeling of Allah subhanaw taala and now we're talking to a line we feel we're standing before Allah, then so now becomes mechanics, and it just becomes exercise.

00:06:18--> 00:06:30

And it won't prevent us from from sinning. But if we pray with our hearts, attentive to Allah subhanaw taala, then Indeed, Allah will eventually stop us from committing those bad deeds. And we'll talk about that as well as we continue with the program.

00:06:32--> 00:06:41

So this is Sala but what about for sure, we've been saying the whole time, for sure. What does this word mean? The definition of for sure is to feel humbled and overwhelmed

00:06:43--> 00:06:50

to Allah subhanho wa Taala. out of love for him and fear for him and hope in Him and humility to him.

00:06:51--> 00:07:13

That this feelings it, it manifests itself in a way that shows its effects on your lives. It's kind of wordy, and say one more time to feel humbled and overwhelmed Allah subhana wa tada in a manner that the body exhibits signs of this humility

00:07:14--> 00:07:47

to Allah. So when one prays, if they're hatia, then they're not going to be scratching their head, they're not going to be yawning and checking their watch because they're feeling they're interviewing of humility and to Allah subhana wa to Allah manifests. This manifests itself on the body, you know, we have to give you an idea. You know, when when your son or daughter or when you guys are playing video games, or you're watching the game, right? You're watching the NBA Finals. When you're watching, you know, the game, the game winner in Madrid the other day, he got the ball young LeBron fouled them no call. He's like,

00:07:48--> 00:07:59

I think everybody was conscious at that moment. Everybody is focused on the TV screen. Nobody knows what's going on outside. They don't know what's happening. If somebody called Hey, hey, Ibrahim.

00:08:00--> 00:08:04

He wouldn't hear it because he's so focused, what's happening.

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

That's what people when they play video games, their mama can be literally this close to them saying of the love, you got to wash the dishes, and he doesn't hear a word of mama sink.

00:08:15--> 00:08:25

He doesn't hear it. Because he's so focused on what he's doing. To beat this stage or beat the boss or whatever it is. He tuned out everything else. And that's for sure.

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

But for the wrong things we want to have for sure.

00:08:31--> 00:08:55

So that we are so focused on Allah subhana wa tada that everything else just gets tuned out. So far back is itching, we don't feel it. If the kids are playing around next to us, we don't hear them. Because we're focused on Allah Subhana Allah now even compete, he sees specific specific states specifically about Cusco and sada he says, show and prayer is only attained by the one who has emptied his heart totally.

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

Who does not appear to pay attention to anything else besides soda?

00:09:01--> 00:09:08

And who prefers cola above everything else? This is how we have to show in our prayer now.

00:09:09--> 00:09:21

The definition of showing a prayer now why is for sure important? Why is this quality important? Why are we spending a whole day trying to improve our for sure, Allah subhana wa tada Satan's through the movie Don't call

00:09:22--> 00:09:23

me

00:09:24--> 00:09:27

a levena home to him.

00:09:30--> 00:09:52

Indeed, the believers have attained success. And I after about 910 I attend they describe who who the believers are who are successful. The first description Allah gave is that when they pray in their Salah, they have this quality of sure to stand before Allah humbled to Allah with concentration and humility and love and fear of Allah.

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

They have attained success and what is the ultimate success? Let's see the conclusion of the set of hoonah

00:10:04--> 00:10:16

Alevi nyati una dosa home fee for the dune they are the inheritors of they are the inheritors, those who will inherit, and for those that are

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

the highest level of gender

00:10:21--> 00:10:26

or what's the roof of this level of gender? Is the art of civil law somehow No, it's

00:10:27--> 00:10:55

your neighbors with Allah. How do you get to that level? The first quality of love said is the believers who get to this level, there are those who have for sure in their prayers, number two, Allah subhanaw taala, describing the hypocrites who he sees about them in them Buddha if you're paying for Dunkin is very mean and they're the lowest level of Hellfire, the worst punishment worse than the kuffaar is the punishment for the hypocrites. Allah says about them in up in

00:10:59--> 00:11:05

the room, the hypocrites they try to deceive Allah, but Allahu deceives them what either

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

you

00:11:15--> 00:11:33

last one is Corona, la la cadena. He says that when they stand to pray, they stand leisurely. They're lazy in their prayers. And they don't remember Allah except a little and they do it to show off.

00:11:34--> 00:11:41

They only remember Allah a little now brothers and sisters The question is when we pray, do we pray like this with our hands a lot?

00:11:43--> 00:11:59

Are we lazy in our prayers when we sit down or is our back straight? Or we kind of slouched and going back and forth how do we pray? The hypocrites plate pray legally. And Allah says do you remember I'm only a little so the question is do we remember a lot a lot or a little in our prayer

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

and we only remember a lot a little the rest of we're just thinking about our work and the job and sports and and and Facebook and what else?

00:12:08--> 00:12:32

We're actually qualifying for a description Allah describe the hypocrites with and that's scary. Now as we mentioned yesterday in the football show, it's so important that one son I could not be even counted if you don't have to show it rather than setting aside Hadith in the Muslim ego that that in another usefulness. Sara Marie tabula rasa Ha, ha ha,

00:12:33--> 00:12:48

ha ha, ha ha, ha ha, ha, this is awesome says that a believer can pray and he will only be given a 10th of its reward. So imagine it for a lot of today we pray after we do the whole for recognize everything you leave, and you only got 10% of the reward.

00:12:50--> 00:13:17

why the President said or at night, or eighth or seventh or sixth or fifth or a third or a quarter or half. Why? Because you're only rewarded for for the part of prayer which you are attentive, which your mind is focused on Allah subhanaw taala it will favor him Allah He says, Be generic set up as a consensus of the early scholars that that's a no later and I've even forgotten.

00:13:19--> 00:13:35

He says that by consensus, early scholars that no one will have a reward from their prayer except for that which they understood and that which they focus on. So now it's scary. Because now we're talking about Okay, we pray five times a day, but I'm getting the full reward of our prayer.

00:13:36--> 00:14:10

That's why this topic is so important. Now, to show brothers and sisters is not easy. This is not an easy thing to attain. And I am probably most in need of this reminder than anybody else. This is not easy. In fact, if somebody said in an authentic hadith that oh what to say in your file will be happy and Allah, Allah for sure had to add de la terapia Harsha. He says the first thing that will be raised from this must be taken away from this oma is this quality of for sure, until you won't even see one person who who is Harsha who has this quality of for sure.

00:14:11--> 00:14:17

You know, unless he says, for way too little mousseline and levina home

00:14:18--> 00:14:18

himself

00:14:20--> 00:14:24

in a way, which is a valley and Hellfire is for the people who pray.

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

Allah says the people who pray will be have this valley in Hellfire, but he sees that as a qualification. It's not just that they pray. But when they pray, they are neglectful on their prayers. I'm gonna say that to him so home, which means the timing of the prayer, they don't pray on time, so they pray, but they're gonna delay thoughts later on until later. It actually says, just like we mentioned yesterday in the hook about about the answer of money and the same thing about this idea that this actually means the one who delays God for the end of God. The praise is already at the beginning.

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

So they join them. So technically they're praying on time.

00:15:04--> 00:15:18

But they're delaying the prayer till the end so they can get the two for one deal. They will have a valley in Hellfire, you know I'm gonna go he said about this idea. He says Alhamdulillah Allah the honor and what am Yeah, cool thing.

00:15:19--> 00:15:27

This thanks to Allah who said on their prayers beyond the time of the prayer through negligence and not in their prayers, they're negligent.

00:15:28--> 00:15:30

Because Allah said that that's scary.

00:15:31--> 00:16:08

And he we're going to if we're going to be a valley in hell, if we're not, if we're not Cognizant, inner prayers, all of us struggle with Asana recognize it's difficult. So it's a difficult thing to do. So you have to understand it's not easy it's gonna take work, just tending one seminar today is not going to give you the solutions. It's it's a process it's a process one step at a time inshallah Tada, now, I want to go over some necessary steps to help develop who sure what are these are our spend too much time on it? will this go on to the next break? Well, there's going to cover these fairly quickly, inshallah Tada, just so we have an idea of some things that need to be done

00:16:08--> 00:16:18

regardless of what we're going to talk about later. So the rest of the program after this, we're gonna get into Salah. These are things that you just have to do is a given. Okay, so it's kind of like a laundry list. We'll quickly go over number one, do

00:16:20--> 00:16:59

you have to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala. To make you amongst those who have for sure. Allah, Allah will have he's the gift giver. He gives gifts to whom He wills. Now, have you heard sure having conscious as a prayer is one of the greatest gifts someone can be given. So we ask Allah Subhana Allah, Oh Allah make me amongst those who have for sure in their prayers. You know, as he says, Well, he says, Well lovey, let me ask you to shayan belaid in LA, he says, look, you will never reach any goal that you have in your life, without the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:17:01--> 00:17:08

there is nothing you will be able to accomplish in your life without the help of Allah. So we say is the key for us on Illa.

00:17:11--> 00:17:15

So how then does one expect to get to Allah subhana wa,

00:17:16--> 00:17:20

to draw closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala without the help of Allah.

00:17:22--> 00:17:32

So but this is the first and absolute most necessary step of having to show is to actually make the HA that Allah makes you a hatia this is important number to

00:17:33--> 00:17:51

pay attention to what is being recited in the prayer. This is sounds like obvious, like really, you're telling me this, but this is important. You have to pay attention to what's being recited in the prayer. And if you if there's a quiet prayer pretend to do what you're reciting You know, there was a there was a this man the man he prayed for that and there's a debate that happened after he prayed for Kaiser three slots.

00:17:52--> 00:18:00

So the last thing I prayed for and some of them are like you prayed for something you were up three. So they're arguing with one another, the one man says, Look, I got

00:18:02--> 00:18:13

I got the solution. I think I know what happened. He says I own four businesses. And so on the first truck I think about all the finance finances for business number one

00:18:15--> 00:18:50

and then number two, business number two, Okay, number three, business number three, but this one I didn't get to business number four, we only pray three records we have to redo our prayer. So kind of that's how we are we don't pay attention to the point we forgot how many recall we did, how many surgeries and we're just thinking about whatever and that's literally chiffon comes to us this is an authentic Heidi The person who said she on comes to the believer when he starts his prayer and says remember that remember that we must remember the most random things like what did I What did my friend wear when he was in third grade at a sleepover party when he wore those Pokemon pajamas? What

00:18:50--> 00:18:51

was he thinking? Like Really?

00:18:52--> 00:19:13

I mean, really? The most random things come to our minds when we pray. So literally This is a base obvious but pay attention to what's being said in the prayer. Everything you say everything that was reciting try and pay attention to what is being said number three, understand what you're saying. This requires. This requires studying what is said insula

00:19:15--> 00:19:26

per se but besides our own in the Quran, what else is said in the sauna for example, Sunday are loaded with heavy the What does that mean? We'll cover inshallah, what does that mean? Somebody spitting 40 years of his life, he doesn't know what that means.

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

But how can you focus on something you don't understand what's being said? So studying what is the set of the prayer is obviously critical to having concentration in the prayer. Number four, learn the Arabic language. This is important. You know, I've been saying to him a lot, he says, A Luma to an Arab ear to me that the that the language of Arabic is part of the religion of Allah as part of the religion of Allah. So if we learn Arabic then when it comes to reciting the Quran, or anything that we say or anything, now we can understand what is being said.

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

So learning Arabic is critical to, to,

00:20:05--> 00:20:05

to

00:20:06--> 00:20:30

having for sure. Not only that, memorize the Quran another point memorize the Quran. Have you noticed when the Imam recites in prayer something as soon as that you memorize don't you pay more attention? Because you know just even in Ramadan it's interesting because you know what happens in our blog is that you know and the first like five six days admissions packed for about a week and everything people miss a shot they miss the funnel they come for the Sunday they come in strange

00:20:32--> 00:20:42

but then after like day five, day six the spirits kind of like dips down a little bit and then and then you don't see as many people then what happens towards the end it picks up but you know what else picks up?

00:20:43--> 00:20:45

You know, most a lot of people they love pseudo yacine

00:20:46--> 00:21:00

right Surya seems like a favorite. So when the map was good, everything's seen that day, the rest is more full. Everybody would say to be like, yeah, I could listen to the mountain and he's we're sending a pseudo either. I know. We're also excited, because we're kind of hoping some people the man makes the mistake so I can correct him

00:21:02--> 00:21:06

since he now stops for a breath and the album like attempted in the back of the kids are really

00:21:08--> 00:21:17

not gonna hear you. The end of actually for correcting the mob is the the proof break behind the assumption correct. The meeting people are the people right behind the knobs should be most knowledgeable of the crowd.

00:21:18--> 00:21:34

So when you understand when you memorize for the exam, understand it's up to you memorize, it helps you focus more. Number six, I think number six, study the defeat of giants. So one thing is knowing Arabic understanding translation, but when you go into the explanation and the in depth of the IR,

00:21:36--> 00:21:55

it transforms a prayer to another level. So study Tafseer, read a book or listen to audio lectures. Whatever it is, it helps you and honestly this is a long process. But what's sad is that we've been Muslim for some of us 4050 years. And we still don't know what will always be Robin and Philippines.

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

We were sitting our whole lives.

00:21:59--> 00:22:05

So not just learning the translation but live when you learn the in depth meaning it gives you a whole another appreciation for

00:22:07--> 00:22:14

that that's point leaving off sin leaving of sin. Now we'll talk about this at the end of the program, but just briefly,

00:22:16--> 00:22:19

briefly every time you commit a sin a black.is put on your heart.

00:22:21--> 00:22:31

So until What I'm saying is that the heart will be coming peace and blackness will be like hard like a rock. So how can you expect to stand before Allah and have a soft heart?

00:22:32--> 00:23:06

And outside of somehow you sinned against the law? constantly, openly, boldly that how do you expect to then stand before Allah and be humbled to Allah and when you do a good deed it removes that blacktop and replaces it with a white.so leaving off sin helps one developer and he you know the the famous poetry Noam shafia he's complaints to his teacher, he says should come to me No kidding. So hopefully he was trying to memorize the Quran. You think my memorization is weak. So counting you know we're getting too heavy for our shader need to kill mounsey because in naive Allah He knows.

00:23:08--> 00:23:19

He says he guided me to leave off committing sins because indeed the the, the knowledge of a lot is a light and the light of Allah is not given to the center.

00:23:21--> 00:23:52

So we have to leave off center to the best of our ability and Allah will give us with this gift of for sure. Number The next point avoid excessive laughter. The most authentic hadith and Baba Rani excessive laughter kills the hearts. And he was you noticed this a lot especially with the young guys like my age, you know, high school college, you notice that they always get together and they're just talking about random scenarios and they keep going on with weird weird stories. And just laugh and laugh and laugh. Unless these will tell the Hakuna whether to Kuhn

00:23:53--> 00:23:57

you laugh a lot and you don't cry. The most that I've said lower

00:23:59--> 00:24:00

the victim Kareena What?

00:24:01--> 00:24:13

If you knew the reality of what I know about him, you would have laughed very little and you have cried a lot. But as his sisters When is the last time we have cried Allah subhana wa tada into our in prayer.

00:24:15--> 00:24:21

honest question, what is the last time you cried to Allah was the last 27th of may a little more than a year ago.

00:24:22--> 00:24:24

Last time we want to hedge it that

00:24:26--> 00:24:30

laughter hardens the heart and crying softens the hearts.

00:24:32--> 00:24:32

Let's

00:24:33--> 00:25:00

pray at the appointed times. And don't don't rush again. It's a given. It's something's obvious but don't rush through your prayer. When you pray, you know the Hadeeth President told them and go back and pray for you haven't prayed three times. The man came in the mission he prints are the guys that every single time when he's leaving the rest of the problem told him go back and prepare you haven't prayed and he prayed about that and told him that when you go into a recall, stay in recall until you've been

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

I'm still the morning Stand up, stand up until you're back becomes fully straight, then go into surgery until you become still. And when you sit, become still and do that for every part of your Sunnah.

00:25:10--> 00:25:14

This is natural that when you slow down, it gives you the opportunity to think when you started thinking you have for sure.

00:25:17--> 00:25:36

Next point pray in the messages in the congregation. When you pray in JAMA, you get number one to get 27 times more reward. Number two, the pastor said that the shaitaan attacks the lone sheep just like the wolf attacks alone sheep, sheep on attacks alone believer. So when you're in congregation, it helps you to do a show and stay away from the tricks up Satan.

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

Next point,

00:25:42--> 00:26:16

keep your eyes on the prescribed places. So when you're praying, we're supposed to look down at the place of such depth, except for when we're sitting down. When we're sitting down, we look at our finger, the rest the time we look at decision. So if you're looking around, naturally, some distracts you from the prayer. So look where the President told us to look at the place of such that next point is learn about Allah so you understand who you are praying to. Now I want to spend a little time on this point. Because really, this is the most important knowledge is the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala. I think if we knew allies, if we fully understood his names and his

00:26:16--> 00:26:20

attributes, our approach to Salah would be completely different.

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

Because we're standing for a loss of habitat. And I want to share with you some things the President said

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

he Muslim.

00:26:29--> 00:26:47

How do you see something that I listen to sing by the words of promise? I said, he says, Yeah, anybody could come down on 11, heydo, festa, dooney and decode all my slaves, all of you are misguided, except for those who I have guided so ask me for guidance. I will give you guidance. Yeah, anybody could look in jail.

00:26:48--> 00:27:04

For Stephanie Mooney. All my slaves, you are all hungry except for whom I have given food. So ask me for food. I will give you this panel. What's amazing, is that you know, everything that we eat, or drink is written for us.

00:27:05--> 00:27:25

Specifically, when you go home, when you peel an orange, you go to Walmart and you buy an orange, that orange that you purchase when it came all the way from Florida shipped to Texas, and the ones that got placed in a Walmart and you happen to go to that Walmart at that time when that specific orange was placed there. And you chose that specific one that was actually written for you by Allah subhanho wa Taala it's not random.

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

every sip of water, you drink that water bottle, you buy that specific water that came from the spring in Colorado that was put in this specific bottle, those specific 1012 ounces were written for you that you drink as a gift from Allah.

00:27:42--> 00:27:50

And when you open that orange and you take one pill, one slice for yourself and one slice you give to your brother, the one he had was written for him by Allah, I get.

00:27:51--> 00:28:08

Everything we have is from Allah, his parents, and he says, Yeah, you could look them up. Elementor Soto fasttech, Sunni exocomp they're all my slaves. All of you are without clothes. Except for those who those who I'm whom I have closed. So ask me for clothes. I will give you clothes. He says

00:28:09--> 00:28:13

yeah, he bought the lady one and a half. One. unova Jamia first of

00:28:15--> 00:28:26

all my slaves, you commit sins and mistakes in the day in the night and I forgive all the sins so ask me for forgiveness. I will forgive you. He says yeah, anybody in the comments below who

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

wouldn't appear on every button family, all my slaves, you will never be able to harm me, nor will you be able to do me any good. What does that mean? Listen to what he says. Yeah. Hey, buddy. No, no wanna come in second margin nickel. Can you

00:28:42--> 00:28:45

call me Ragini minko. Masada

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

daddy Kathy Wilkie Shea if the first of you to the last, the humans in the gym, were as righteous as the most righteous person amongst you. If all of the men of the oma were like Abu Bakar and all a woman who were like buddies

00:29:02--> 00:29:07

that would not increase the dominion of Allah in any way at all.

00:29:08--> 00:29:16

So people sometimes think why do I need to pray? Why does Allah need my prayer? Who am I? Allah doesn't need your prayer. We need unless panel was

00:29:18--> 00:29:22

reading a loss help a lot does it need us? Then he says yeah, you need a window what

00:29:24--> 00:29:25

kind of

00:29:27--> 00:29:55

income manager so that he can remove all my slaves and all of you with personal last human in general on the we're like the most sinful slave and in this world, the most sinful person in the history of the world that would have diminished from the kingdom of Allah in the least bit and he sees Yeah, he bad you know when no one was. Second virginica. Amalfi sided why because I only need to calm down and sign in with another man after so that it can mean mimiron de la kameoka. So either

00:29:56--> 00:30:00

he says that if all of you from beginning

00:30:00--> 00:30:35

To end from the center to the day of judgments, incent human worth to stand on one plane, and everybody asks me what they want. Imagine you want gold, one silver, you want palaces, you want Ferrari, you want land, you want planets. You want to own islands. And you want to own the hoard everybody, the trillions of people who have lived with us, for them, everybody asked and asked Allah for whatever they wanted, that would not diminish the kingdom of Allah, the least bit. And he gave the example just like a bird picks out a drop of water from the ocean.

00:30:36--> 00:30:37

This is the last panel.

00:30:38--> 00:30:57

This is where we stand before to worship every day. Now, what's interesting is that if we try to count the blessings of Allah upon us, we won't be able to do some. Allah says, went out do near but Allah He not even count one blessing of Allah upon you, you can't do it, let alone all the blessings of Allah.

00:30:59--> 00:31:27

You know, there was there was a woman in New York who had kidney failure. This woman she had kidney failure, she needed a kidney transplant. And so they began to search, you know, you know, the doctors, you know, they're looking for who can who can donate their kidney to this woman to save her life. She's finished, she needs a kidney transplant. So that began the search and they found out that her husband actually had the matching kidney type that can be donated to his wife to save her life.

00:31:28--> 00:31:41

So the husband being the loving husband, you know, he said, I'll go ahead with the surgery. It's funny because I want to ask this question to another group. I said, I asked them what do you think the husband would do what he do the surgery or not? So the brothers in the crowd said no, this is just said yes.

00:31:43--> 00:31:44

Do you guys do you do the surgery?

00:31:46--> 00:31:48

Yeah, of course. This is why

00:31:49--> 00:31:49

he

00:31:51--> 00:32:10

to do the surgery. So he does a surgery he donate his kidney to his wife and Masha Allah imagine now like how this couple would be would feel. I mean, the husband's like, Man, I'm the man. I should expect landvetter body briyani at home everyday come home from work. Why? Because I saved your life and you owe me that's the least you can do.

00:32:11--> 00:32:15

If you want to throw some gloves I want to put off also I need the better. But again,

00:32:16--> 00:32:36

that's how and the woman's probably like I owe my husband my life. Right? He's saying I mean, he gave me one of his organs. That's, that's pretty serious. So there must have been a nice parallel. The husband finds out that a year just one year separated from the surgery. He finds out that his wife cheated on him.

00:32:37--> 00:32:39

He was like, Oh,

00:32:40--> 00:32:53

that's not cool. I gave you I gave you a piece of meat. I gave you my own kidney. And you can go cheat on me. He was so upset. He filed a lawsuit. He said I want my kidney back.

00:32:56--> 00:33:04

So what does the judge do? We reverse the surgery, we give the kitten and then you can't do that. So it's fine. It's gonna be $1.5 million. And we'll call it a day.

00:33:05--> 00:33:06

We know it's interesting.

00:33:08--> 00:33:09

Allah subhanaw taala is and Helene

00:33:11--> 00:33:12

is the most forbearing

00:33:14--> 00:33:18

so Allah gave us our kidneys.

00:33:19--> 00:33:27

He gave us our eyes He gave us our health. He gave us our beauty. He was everything we have. Brothers and sisters do we act like this woman?

00:33:29--> 00:33:32

Do we take the blessings Allah has given us

00:33:33--> 00:33:38

and use those same blessings to sin against Allah subhana wa tada Allah.

00:33:39--> 00:33:50

Oh Allah, you gave me my eyes. I'm going to look at how long all you gave me my beauty but I'm not going to work your job. I will use the same blessings you gave me to sin against you

00:33:51--> 00:33:52

as Allah.

00:33:53--> 00:34:04

But even with that, even when we do this stuff, in gratitude, a bonus against Allah Subhana Allah still keeps giving us

00:34:05--> 00:34:07

he doesn't take away our eyesight.

00:34:08--> 00:34:31

He doesn't paralyze us next time we sin with our hand or with our feet. He keeps giving us His blessings and having even an eraser last season. Have you seen my own softening Abdi? yet? They're already faster here. We are Sweeney. What is the E Mini is my sleeve hasn't been fair to me. He he as he likes to me and I answer him.

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

I feel shy to not answer him.

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

But he sins against me. He doesn't feel shy from me.

00:34:42--> 00:34:43

spamela

00:34:44--> 00:34:47

a lot of them had he. Allah is

00:34:49--> 00:34:57

the one who covers our sins. You know we commit sins and sins and sins and out of his mercy to us, covers us.

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

If

00:35:00--> 00:35:10

Did they say if we had a sense of our sins had a stench, we wouldn't even come within, you know, miles of one another because of how much how bad he was smell by law covers our sins.

00:35:11--> 00:35:12

And there are some people

00:35:15--> 00:35:40

who are so bold against the last panel with data that they will sin, and then they'll publicize their sins. They'll tell other people they'll post their pictures on Facebook with the girl that they were at the club, or the guy that ran the club. Drinking alcohol, sisters will post their pictures on Facebook without any job that's publicly sinning. And you know what that means. The prompts I said, This is serious. He says, He says, qu,

00:35:42--> 00:35:48

il puja hero, the all of my oma is apt to be forgiven, except for those who publicly sin.

00:35:50--> 00:35:58

He says they spent the night committing sins, because committing sin is natural cannot be added up, we will all commit sins.

00:35:59--> 00:36:08

He spent the night committing sins, but Allah covered him. And then in the day, he goes and tell so and so I've committed such and such I've done such and such.

00:36:09--> 00:36:14

He spent the night in the cover of Allah. And then he removed the cover of the last panel.

00:36:16--> 00:36:22

Allah is a little foolish man or him and everybody can be forgiven about Allah, except for the one who publicly sins.

00:36:23--> 00:36:41

So never brothers or sisters post pictures on Facebook or on Twitter or do something publicly sinning against, at least have the decency to the shame to hide when you're committing to since but then when you know, Allah knows Allah is karate, you know, Allah is always watching you.

00:36:43--> 00:37:08

Brothers now even brothers will post the pictures on Facebook at the club. They'll post pictures of their wives without any job. Maybe their wedding day sisters usually get the bank on stuff and a lot of times in this disgusting culture, but it is what it is. It's culture. They don't wear that even sisters are wearing the job. What were the job on the wedding? So they're here is going to have makeup on now to go on like that. But then they'll post their pictures on Facebook, look at me my wedding day.

00:37:11--> 00:37:24

And he wins the veto. There's a sense of protective jealousy. Where's the sense of honor we're going to publicize our sins against the law? How have we become against the law? To the point is so serious that

00:37:25--> 00:37:29

you will never be forgiven by Allah if you publicize your sins.

00:37:31--> 00:38:06

Unless you stop, you take off the pictures you repent. But this is a serious problem is spread like like like the plague in our own. People publicize their sins and they think it's okay when I put it out. But Allah says he's the one who repetitively covers our sins. So never brothers and sisters be the one who uncovers a cover of Allah. He's got to love. He's the one who repetitively forgives and repent. Steven says, well, lo you read were you to Veronica. Hello was to turn to you and repentance. So no matter how many sins I have committed, can I come back to Allah? Absolutely. You know, we think people have baggage people sitting they have baggage. You know, a lot of doors are

00:38:06--> 00:38:14

never too narrow for anyone. No matter how many sins you have committed, you turn back to Allah not only will he accept you but he says

00:38:16--> 00:38:17

sort of forgotten in

00:38:23--> 00:38:28

for the one who turns back to Allah repentance and believes and he works righteous deeds, but

00:38:31--> 00:38:32

he can you bet the

00:38:34--> 00:38:35

team has no

00:38:36--> 00:38:52

work at all Allah for Allah Hema, for this person, Allah will replace their bad deeds with good deeds. Imagine you spent 30 years at the club and sitting and doing all these bad deeds never prayed. And then you come back to Allah and repent to Allah.

00:38:54--> 00:39:02

All those evil people you didn't know won't just be wiped away. They will actually be converted into good deeds and will be part of the skill of good deeds.

00:39:04--> 00:39:05

This merciful

00:39:06--> 00:39:11

he's the one who constantly forgive you do what you say is the source of love. And I love that.

00:39:13--> 00:39:22

He says, I think this idea is the most the idea that gives us most reason to hoping Allah, Allah was gonna say is how

00:39:25--> 00:39:28

it is done. We'll call it the tobe

00:39:29--> 00:39:36

Shadi did I copy that bone? He says, the one who forgives sins and accepts repentance but he sees

00:39:38--> 00:39:48

them as a form of Guru and avoided avoided Toba Subhana Allah, Allah first days you will forgive the sins. Then he says I accept repentance.

00:39:50--> 00:39:56

You can't even imagine how much of a less he perceives you'll forgive the sins before even the one repents

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

because he didn't talk to God. But he said

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

Fear and punishment for the one who turns away from Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:40:04--> 00:40:14

He's R Rahman r Rahim, the most constantly Merciful, the the the Abundantly Merciful and the constantly merciful. You know what he says?

00:40:15--> 00:40:16

In that in nahi, Mia,

00:40:18--> 00:40:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala Ana has divided mercy into 100 portions, and he says the only 1% one portion has been put in this world and 99% is left for us.

00:40:32--> 00:40:38

So, the mercy that we see amongst the creatures of Allah have mercy a mother shows to her child

00:40:39--> 00:40:44

is just 1% of the mercy of Allah watch this video and

00:40:52--> 00:40:52

see,

00:41:05--> 00:41:05

yo

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

yo own known

00:41:18--> 00:41:20

for the man

00:41:24--> 00:41:25

says,

00:41:27--> 00:41:31

oh, Eddie Yeah, amen.

00:41:48--> 00:41:49

Many.

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

Yeah.

00:42:06--> 00:42:16

That was example of just 1% of diversity. That is replacing this earth, a portion of the one person this cabin, give me a car that is half

00:42:19--> 00:42:22

size and doesn't leave the side of this cap.

00:42:26--> 00:42:38

between animals, how us parents, Allah has saved 99% of His mercy He has created for us. And this is the one whom we send before and pray five times a day.

00:42:40--> 00:42:45

So brothers and sisters, to sum it up, when the more we learn about our last panel,

00:42:46--> 00:43:01

the more we learn about Allah, the more you will love Allah. And the more you love Allah, the more you're looking forward to praying to Allah subhana wa. So one of the necessary steps to for sure, is to learn about who Allah is. I just gave you this some points.

00:43:03--> 00:43:13

But this is the most important knowledge one can have is a knowledge of a law. And once you know Allah said that he saved 99% of His mercy for Alfredo. You know, like, you know, I'm a chef. Yeah, he says,

00:43:14--> 00:43:22

Allah Subhana. Allah has given me Islam, without even me asking him for it. I was born a Muslim.

00:43:23--> 00:43:35

So I am hopeful that He will bless me with the dose and while I am asking him for it, can you imagine nanny, the setup, they would say, I look forward to meeting the 99% of the mercy of Allah.

00:43:36--> 00:43:41

If Allah gave me the greatest form of mercy is what the sub has the greatest mercy as a being if

00:43:43--> 00:43:48

we were given that mercy in this world. So imagine, well, what has in store for us, but the other day 9% and

00:43:49--> 00:43:51

this is our Lord, that equal number of buku.

00:43:53--> 00:43:53

This is your Lord Allah.

00:43:55--> 00:44:03

So worship Him, the least we can do is give him five to work out for our own need. He doesn't need our own need, pray five times a day with concentration

00:44:05--> 00:44:05

that Michelle

00:44:07--> 00:44:17

will end the session with. The problem is that a Muslim man will ask the Prophet he will not 90 Allah which deed is most loved by Allah. The President told him of Salah to Allah,

00:44:19--> 00:44:43

prayer on his time. So if we start to learn about Allah, we love Allah and because we claim to love Allah, but if we truly love Allah, then we would want to do what's the most love to him? Who would want to worship Him by what's what he loves the most positive said the thing Allah loves the most is the five prayers on their appointed times. So next time we pray, we know what the gift from Allah to us and we know Allah loves when we do it.
