have started lon her amando meaning the wife of the prophets I send them in the daughter of Babylon who she narrates that she heard her father make a deal, which she found strange. She says that her father said in his
Allahumma opening catiline fee savelic were fat and fee bernadina v IC.
He has the last panel data for two things in this.
He said oh well I asked you that i i die in your path.
The diet Shaheed the most noble and honor death.
But he also said at the same time while wishing for that I also asked you that I die in the city of your profits on I said
because we know that there are
certain blessings attributed to those who die in Medina and are Braden bulkier
and he wanted to be next to his companions, the promises of an ambu bag and who were buried there as well and the other many companions who were buried there.
So have so I asked him how is that possible because at that time, there wasn't any battles in Medina there wasn't a chance to die Shaheed and Medina.
right the the the outskirts of the of the Muslim Empire at that time was in Northern Africa and Sham and the lake. So when she asked him that he responded by saying in the lion TV, MD and sha Allah can do as He wills. Right? It's just up to us to make the drama. We asked a lot, a lot leave it up to him to answer. And it wasn't so long after that he made that there are that on Salatin Federer when he stood before the Muslims to start the prayer for soldats, and fidget. And what he would do is, you know, when the Imam tells the congregation to straighten the lines, he would actually walk between the rows and make sure everybody is straight, like an army, how they marched together, and
they stand together disciplined, shoulder to shoulder, foot to foot, everybody standing in a perfect line. And then he began reciting, and he began to sell lots of veggies. And it wasn't it's narrated, that it's it wasn't uncommon for people because the message would be so full, that there would be people who would pray next to the Imam meaning they're maximizing the space of the mission.
And so when he began praying, there was a man who was hiding behind the main front pillar of the masjid
by the name of Abu Elmer, juicy Abu, the fire worshipper. He was a slave, a non Muslim slave in a time and he was a blacksmith by training by trade. And so he had fashion this dagger with two heads that some narration say he's soaked in poison for one month, with the goal to assassinate a monopod.
And so when the prayer began, he jumped out from behind the pillar and he stabbed him three times in the shoulder in the chest and in the abdomen, and the abdominal wound, he actually opened, he did a large a large wound.
And then he turned around now to flee. But what's he facing, he's facing an army of believers standing in prayer, shoulder to shoulder foot to foot.
And so he literally just jumps into the line and begins stabbing left and right. And he stabbed 13 other Sahaba that day, seven of whom died on the spots.
And finally, one companion, he took his his art and he threw it at a bow and covered him.
And he realized that he's going to be captured and so he committed suicide and took his own life.
Now the Sahaba in the back of the machine didn't know what was going on.
Right they hear some commotion to hear the recitation has stopped. So the begin things from Hannah law
to prompt the Imam to continue.
Now I'm gonna have Bob who was leading the Sahaba. And Sala he actually grabbed
who was right behind him, one of the 10 promised paradise one of the senior Sahaba
and pulled him forward to finish the prayer to leave the prayer. And then he passed out unconscious.
And Subhanallah man finished the Salah.
He finished leading the prayer. And after their prayer was complete, I'm the live and the Son of God he narrates what happens next he says a cabana abena Amina, who
will be damned, he says, We came to my father to carry him in it and his wounds were flowing with, with with with blood. So he says I tried to stop the bleeding. But when I put my hand over his abdomen, my hand actually went inside because of how big the wound was. So I took off my turban and I tied it closed and we carried him home and he sees and my father was completely unconscious.
And so you can imagine the scene you know when you read what happened in this time in the in the state of Medina
at the time and these last few days on the hot tub and when he finally died from these injuries.
The similarity the closest similarity that we that I'm aware of is when the president of himself died
like the city was in the state of shock
and as they were trying to resuscitate Omar and and wake him up and and and you know try and try and revive him. He remained
unconscious until someone finally told him a meeting what meaning Asana, Asana
because the sun was about to rise in the time for Vegeta was about to end. When they told him I mean what meaning of sauna the time for prayer. He then woke up from a state of unconsciousness.
And the first words he spoke
his body's pulsating. Imagine the scene. His body is pulsating with pain that people are crying the woman behind the curtains are crying. People are are in a state of shock. He wakes up he looks around him. And the first words he sees is a sullenness.
Did the people finish the prayer?
Did they pray for lots in federal or did they stop their prayer?
His first words?
And when they told him Yes, they prayed, He then said, he saw his son, I'm the law. 30 said Go, go get me water. And he said, Do you want to drink? He said, No, I need to make will do it because I didn't complete my prayer.
And then when he brought him the water, and he told him to lie again, sit me up. And I told him, You can lie down and pray you're injured, severely injured. He says, No, I don't. I don't accept that for me to lie down and praying, I want to stand up and pray.
And when they tried to set him up, his injury became severe again, and it opened in the lake and he wasn't able to and he prayed laying down. After he finished the prayer, He then asked a question that you and I would think you would ask from the start, which was who killed me?
who stabbed me Who did this?
And when they told him it was the slave of movie era, he says the the firewall shipper
and they said yes.
You know what his response was?
He said Hamdulillah, Dijon, mot Allah de Rajan. Let me Yes, you'd be such that in wahida, you had Jenny behind the light. And he says, All praise and thanks to Allah subhanho wa Taala, who has made my death at the hand of a man who has never once made sujood in front of a law before.
Why is he saying that? Because he says, by virtue of even doing that, once in his life, he would have a standing position or ground by which to argue with a law against Ahmad on the Day of Judgment, just for one such that
as remarkable, some kind of law from his subconscious, from a coma like state to wake up when he hears the words, the time for prayer about to leave is about to leave. Where did he learn that from?
Where did he learned that from?
You know, when the prophets I send them was in his last days.
And he was so weak, he couldn't even leave his room, which was connected to the messenger to lead this haben Sala satellite shop. He said Moodle backend value suddenly been NASA's tell Abu Bakar to lead the people in prayer.
But they, they were hopeful, they were hoping that perhaps the President would be able himself to lead the people in prayer.
So they didn't tell him.
And the last sentence he passed out from how severe his sickness was.
And when he woke up from this, he was going in and out of consciousness. The first words he said, were synonymous to the people pray.
They said lay out a pseudo law homie until the Messenger of Allah, they haven't prayed. They're waiting for you to lead them in prayer. So he said, Well, can you bring me water? So I can make I can wash myself and then I will leave them in prayer. So they bring him water. And when he tries to wash himself, he passes out again, unconscious.
And so they wait again.
And nobody's prayed. And when the prophets I send them wakes up again, from the state of unconsciousness, he again, the first words, he says, are synonymous, that the people pray.
It's remarkable the dedication and the commitment they had to the prayer. And one of the last times you know, before before the Hasidim died, he he he appeared to the Sahaba from from his door, and the narration says that his face was like a shining silver platter.
And when they saw him like that, and he was so happy, and why was he smiling and happy because he saw the message and full
of oberkommando thought that maybe he's on the road to recovery and so he left to to see his family. And that was the day the problem some of them died.
But some halala after this much dedication
and, and an effort and and blood, sweat and tears.
Well what the person's reaction be to seeing our state with our, with our slot out today.
You know when the verse was revealed when Allah subhanaw taala he says in pseudo Imodium, he says fairhall fmu body him holophone
Shahada for so.
Allah says a nation came after them who abandon the prayer and follow their desires so they will meet a lion
and ally is a valley in Hellfire that is so severe in its punishment, that the rest of Hellfire seeks refuge from that part of itself.
A lot of things there'll be a nation that will come after them who will abandon the prayer and this will be their end their promises that he asked you read on he said, he says, to buy your own muchas Sana my alma will abandon the prayer.
My Alma will leave the prayer
up Ronnie Sam told them yet to acquire moment oma Chica bionda Dino domina dunya canino messenger of Allah, there will be people who will come after you from your nation who will sell the religion for a very small, miserly return.
will be so scared to pray in public, or to pray at work or at school or wherever we are because of what people might say. Just because of what people might say we abandon the prayer.
Battle the minute dunya for very small, miserly returns upon Allah. Right and somehow in the positive means set in a heading, that the difference between a person and disbelief what stands between a person and disbelief is technical sada is abandoning the prayer.
That's why on the day of judgment and when the people of Paradise will be in Paradise, they'll be talking to one another last month Allah He says illa habba Leah mean Fijian knotty Tessa
an emoji Remi Masada cacoon v soco. Allah says that the companions of the right hand the people of Paradise, they'll be talking to one another, they're in general enjoying themselves. And they're talking to one another. They ask one another in conversation they say, you know, feature not the other side alone. They're asking about what about the people that they used to be with? who ended up in Hellfire and so the conversation then shifts to directly to them, they asked them the people of Hellfire what caused you to go into hellfire. And the first reason they respond with is on
Amina mousseline. We weren't amongst those who used to pray.
We weren't amongst those that used to pray.
And so now when the affair has been decided, this is their end.
This is their end. SubhanAllah. Right. And you know what's interesting is panelo when when you know when a new child is born,
his father calls the event in his ear.
One of the first things you and I have all heard
or your children have heard,
is the call to Salah.
Come to prayer, Haryana and finance come to success.
But what's interesting is that is made a call to prayer is made but there is no prayer offered. There is no sutra offered.
But you fast forward in this young infants life maybe 30 years or 50 years or 10 years or however long the law gives us
person to live.
And when their body is brought in front of the congregation for Salatu janaza. And the Salah is prayed. There is no event called
there is no a comma called.
It's as if our prayer is between our lives. Our whole life is between the event and sauna.
That's how short life is. But that's also how important prayer is within the life of the believer.
That's how important it is. You know, there was a brother who I met in Medina and Mr. Nebo he and I recognize them because I saw his video on YouTube before he's paralyzed from neck down. His name is Abdullah.
He used to be healthy he used to be a young man with just like anybody else with ambitions and dreams and the like and but he wasn't religious. He was a Muslim, but he didn't. He didn't pray he didn't you know, he didn't really care about following the injunctions of this religion.
And he had an accident and he became paralyzed from the neck down. And so on this interview on TV on this on this, this this broadcast the the interviewer asked him a question. He says, Oh, I'm the law. If you had three wishes, what would they be?
Somebody who had everything and lost everything. I mean, he can't even use the bathroom on his own, his mother would have to help him use the bathroom.
He can't scratch his back. He can't he can't move. He's literally neck down. He's paralyzed.
And so he sees panela his answer was was amazing. He said, my first wish is I wish that I can make just one such that Allah subhana wa Tada.
inshallah megumin, he says, and I don't even want to get up from that such that again. I just want to have the ability to prostrate to allow one more time.
And this is what was interesting. He says, You know what, what shocks me? He says, when I was healthy, he says, Now when I'm sick people come visit me. They feel sorry for me. They see me in the state that I'm in and they and they feel bad for me.
But he says when I was healthy, and I didn't use to pray, no one felt bad for me.
Now physically, yeah, I'm sick. But before spiritually, I was in the ICU, I was clinging on to life.
And no one felt bad for me.
And he sees what terrifies me.
What I'm so scared of. He says is the verse in the Quran
where Allah subhanho wa Taala he describes a scenario that will occur on the Day of Judgment. When he says, yo ma you chef Saku una Isla suju the Fed is dumping your own
total help boom de la welco the car can you down ina suju the one whom Sadie moon Allah says on the day the shin will be uncovered and we will be called to make such that to Allah.
A call will be made and this will be the time and only the believers and the hypocrites remain
and alone will call all of mankind's have fallen prostration to Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah says, there will be a group of them that will not be able to do so.
The mufa City and say that when the believers will fall in prostration it will be as if an iron rod is placed in their back straight. So they can't bow down and they fall backwards.
And Allah subhanaw taala he says, Hotshots and Obasanjo their eyes are overwhelmed with fear tumblehome vinland they're surrounded by humiliation. And Allah says what God can Are you the owner in a studio boom Salima
before you were called to make suju to Allah while you were healthy
while you were able to do so
that's why I'm the law the brother is terrified because he's he says when I was healthy I didn't
brothers and sisters sada is the first thing we'll be asked about on the day of judgment
and if we take care of that then everything that comes after will be okay. But if we falter in our Salah then the Hadith says whatever comes after is worse
we will not succeed it is the criterion it is the the red line
that we have to do the best we can to preserve our photo and then if there's any shortcomings in our photo, the prayers our obligatory prayers then it will be looked at our sydnor prayers are now laughing Is there anything from there to compensate so that we can be hold and continue on and and inshallah tada go to Jenna but that's that's the criteria right there sada How will be how will our prayers be? How will our prayers be? Hakuna Connie had our sovereignty welcome. First off you don't
know him I know him hamdulillah me know salatu salam on a hot minute being a member of Sani Habib? Vina Mohammed wa he was a big man.
You know, last panel with Allah. He commanded sheep on the police to make sujood
to make sujood along with the angels to add the monies. And the angels fell in prostration. But at least he refused.
He refused to make one such that just one.
And for that he was cursed for an eternity.
How many sujood have we missed?
How many prayers have we been negligent upon?
We've slept in or not cared to do or said we'll pray later or the like.
What's interesting, or what's almost scary? Is this narration in which authentic narration which man, he came into the masjid.
The prophets of Salaam was sitting in the masjid. And the man went to the front of the message and he prayed to rock eyes.
And then he was leaving the machine and you and as he was leaving, he said, sat down to the Prophet. So I said, No.
And so the president responded. And then he told him interjet, for Sunday for in the column to Sunday,
go back and pray for you haven't actually prayed.
But the man just prayed.
He just went in front of the promises and pray to other guys. And the promise of them tells him go back and pray you haven't prayed.
And so he goes back and he prays again.
And as he's leaving the mess to the second time again, he sees an answer. Again, tells him he said, heaven tells him the other Jefferson leaf and the column to me go back and pray you haven't prayed.
A third time he prays a third time he's leaving a third time the President tells him go back and pray you have not prayed.
And then finally, the man tells the messenger Wilson, I said to him, he tells him what are the batha bill? How come I've seen a little later I had a family or messenger ally swear by the one who has sent you with the truth.
I don't know better than what you just saw me do. Meaning the way you saw me pray is how I know how to pray. So Teach me.
And so the process that I'm taught him what he was doing wrong in his prayer, he says when you stand to pray, then he says, recite whatever Allah has made easy to you from the Quran, and when you go into the court, make sure you come to a position of stillness and calmness. And when you stand, make sure your back comes up straight, meaning you're not rushing through your prayer. Each position is given its rights. And each position as we learn more about the prayer, we learn has a unique taste and flavor and sweetness to it.
That can just that one position of prayer can really transform your life, or you can have a spirit, you can break down crying, in front of a lot of humility and fear and love. And just that sitting between the two sides does that last one second, the last one and a half second, can be a profound spiritual moment because it has profound spiritual meanings. It does.
In the process of me setting a hadith in an app that I use only Sala da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, a man may pray and only get 10% of the reward.
Or maybe one ninth of the reward, or one eighth of the reward, or one seventh or one sixth, and he went on.
So we just talked about the importance of prayer. But what about the shelves? I know everybody here is amongst those. You're here at the mission. You're here for Juma, you respond to the call to come.
But what if our prayer if we're praying five times a day are we getting? Am I among the people who only get 10% of the reward?
or 20% or 50%? That's still a big deal. Right? So it's not just about the prayer. The Prayer is obviously critically important, but it's not just the prayer but rather also the spirit within the prayer.
The concentration and for sure we have in the prayer.
Right Allah that He says Leanna Lohan to whom ohana deema.
When we make the solder for all the hair for the Qurbani, I'm gonna say it's not the blood that means it reaches a lot. It's not the meat that reaches a lot.
mean, but rather what reaches a lot is the awareness you have of a last panel with another consciousness you have a last panel with Allah as you're doing the act.
Right so brothers and sisters, we have to recommit ourselves to being a nation of families and communities who are our lives revolve around the prayer, not the prayer around our lives.
Right And not only that, we have to try and do the best we can to increase our quality in prayer so that every prayer we pray so tada we are getting the most from their award meals not to give us tofield to do so. In Allahumma lunada nebia Amano San Juan, he was sitting with us Nima Aloma Sanjana Mohammed Ali Mohammed came so late Allah him water Ebrahim in nicomedia Majeed, a llama vaticana Muhammad Ali Mohammed came about October he wanted to Brahim finallly minakami de Majeed allama Philomena well Muslim out mininova minutes Allah you mean him?
