And then we complain about our state of our affairs or a weakness for our county. So I Giacomo la Salas mahalo tala canaliculi. Hi. I know there are many questions about this subject. But as I said, tonight, I want you to leave home with these benefits 11 benefits that I mentioned. I don't want you to think about cinema Canada or for FIFA, or worship.
Yeah. And you can study these things later on, we can talk about them on a different occasion. Even though if you want me to talk about why I feel that it could be an obligation, I can tell you that
the proofs of their odema who said that it could be an obligation
like Abdullah have no remarks to he was a blind man, right? And he came to us as well. And he said, Yeah, Rasul Allah, I'm a blind man. And Medina is full of beasts and insects.
And I don't find someone a guide to help me make it to the masjid. He's blind. He was blind.
He said, I don't find someone to help me bring me the message. Do you find the roxor for me to pray at home? permission? So he said yes.
Then when he left, but Allah says him called him again and said, Do you hear the error? He said, I'd love to say yes. And he said for he then respond to the call,
respond to the call.
Matter come to the message and pray with Muslims. This is one of their proofs.
They just call lucky for the line.
that when you expect the reward later, this app will increase. I mean, you're you get some benefits for thinking about the rewards. Instead of making instead of using it as a social habits, like it's part of my culture, my people go to the masjid I go to the masjid. That's the difference between the true believers and those who
you know, they don't think about the rewards because also less Aslam talks about the rewards. Remember, when sama ramadan mahkamah ramadan Eman and YT, sab and mon sama, Eman and YT Sabbath with faith and expecting the rewards, thinking about the rewards. So when you think about the rewards, you'll be excited and motivated to do things.
the rewards for
for thinking about the rewards to color allowance? I don't know.
For sure, we'll go. We'll start with the right side.
Yeah, that's a good question. And the brother is saying now, you stated you were talking tonight about the benefits and the rewards of fraying in the house of Allah in the message. How about the one who prays at home with his wife with his children to have a Gemma at home? Or the prayer at work? Now
gratitude opinions about it.
There are some Rama they said the people who will get the rewards for every Gemma in any place. And these rewards are all given to anyone who prays in JAMA he doesn't pray by himself, even if he prays in his shop or at home or outside anywhere. The second opinion they said actually Russell Lhasa Selim is talking here about the Gemma offered in the message. What is the delete the first heading that I mentioned. And this is the opinion of blue Raja Raja Rahmatullah alayhi wa sallam, he is great scholar. He's going to explain this hadith because they are in the Buhari, he said there was from Lhasa, Selim mentioned the masjid.
He makes you though at home properly and then proceeds towards the mercy.
And the other heavy machinery machinery give glad tidings to those two who walked to the masjid
who walked to the massage in the dark.
You know so, so much as enemies talking here in this ahaadeeth in the Miami rumor says the love the aim that they mentioned the sort of tilbyr the houses of Allah only maintained by those who believe in Allah and the day and the last day and everything
And so on. So the height even if we're talking about massage, so that that's why we have a group of scholars who believe no, this is the Gemma that is taking place in the message. And this is the opinion of many contemporary scholars. You don't agree with those who offer math and salata to their place of work or in their houses and even though if like Braden would ngema they don't they don't you don't agree with that. They said there are some losses and Amanda Gemma have the mercy.
Now, give me a chance to someone else here how do we differentiate
there is there is no difference
because the message is a place of suit and a place of suit people distinguish between masala and MSG.
Any other time for Sula hasulam
at the time for
the the eastern method and call the place in which the PErforM Salatu was Salam. But it was an open place an open place in the in the field it was not a proper place and they call it mu solid eight. So,
if you if you go to any masala like here method and this is a Masjid
we pray in either five daily prayers we do Juma and everything. You go to any masala and the Yama is being done with Imam and then karma inshallah Bismillah you get rewards. Hello, Tyler.
Just to clarify your signs of hypocrisy include people missing and
any shop so in my case, I'm clarifying because I do try to make it at least once or twice with demand but
do you think in my case, am I technically you because I'm not trying all the time to make it?
Because I do try to make it Yeah, I actually answered this question the brother is saying you're like trying my best with Mother Nature and fragile but I don't pray all of them in the message is it a sign weakness of email? I don't want to look at it this way. At this time. This is what they said at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu he clearly said it he said this is the difference between us and the moon African it's very hard for them to attend to Asia and Russia.
But as I said people nowadays are getting different instructions different you know opinions and they are confused about it but I will tell you if you know these benefits
of course of course
and you make it habit it will be easy
if they are well cooked he brother is talking about garlic and only if they are well cooked it should be fine.
And this is the first who are Fromer hapa is a cook them very well. If you want to eat them and come to the mercy but if they are fresh, no You shouldn't come to the mercy if you eat them fresh they are in salad or something yummy. Don't Don't come to them as
you should know you should be able to know any
if he did and then
if you are in doubt don't come to the mosque. It's better to stay at home because you have an excuse. This is a valid excuse. I'm not saying it's haram to eat only an garlic so taco salad to eat them. But also last as me said if you eat them don't come to them as their health.
So the onion and garlic on purpose.
Sharla Satan, I told you today Satan is
trying his best with people. You cannot make up an excuse. You cannot meet you cannot man unless it is their men like food. If food is served, it's okay. Your wife tells you food is ready. Okay, that's fine. This isn't a valid excuse.
I I don't want to make it difficult for people because then I like to enjoy to benefit from the Rojas of Allah subhanaw taala when Allah gives you a roxa
Allah spent Allah makes it an excuse Don't try to avoid it. It's nice you will enjoy the Rama the mercy of Allah spent Allah and his team. Take it easy. If you are tired, extremely tired, like sick cannot come.
So you're you're worried about the road conditions, the weather conditions you're
you're eating your food with your family. That's okay, these are valid excuses.
Yeah, but no eating garlic with the purpose of avoiding salad to Gemma it's silly.
And I'm sorry to say this but
and hoppy. The hottie is not giving hot, by the way, we are talking about Juma.
You mean they don't like the man.
That that's a good point. Actually. You know the earlier mouth and assume no Gemma, there is an agreement between all the room of allisonville Gemma between it's an agreement is man that Muslims are supposed to go to the mercy look. And
from this, you understand the importance of praying in the masjid. We said Muslims are supposed to pray behind the fantastic, sinful Imam or someone who has a bitter he's known for his own bitter as long as his bitter does not take him out of the fold of Islam.
Yeah, and even if he's a man of Buddha innovations, or he's fantastic, and he's leading the prayer, he was appointed by the government or appointed by the Ministry of Religious Affairs, who are appointed by some other people in the message and you can do nothing about it. Keep quiet and go and offer your salad with the Shama you will get your rewards have nothing to do with his personal life with his problems with his issues. As an email, you get your hands on it. This is an ajumma made by all the scholars of Allison ojama to show the importance of praying in the mosque. Unless you know that the Imam is not Muslim. Like he's has a crazy belief or something, then that's a different
story. And it's very difficult to label someone as a capital nonnamous. Yes. Based on what he said, last year, I went back home to chat. And then I went to the village at the village green was when we went through Juma prayer. A lot of people did not come to the mosque. And when I asked why they said the mom always takes the next job interview.
So what's the point of
the present rato?
This is a big mistake.
Even though this email is supposed to do his Friday hotma with their own language, well my son Mira, Solon, Ella, Bella Sonico me We never sent a messenger except with the tongue of the mother tongue of his own people.
Every messenger used to speak the language of his own people. So now all the aroma all the aroma except in the Hanafi school of thought, they said that Friday Prayer could be delivered in any language accepting the Hanafi school of thought is he a Hanafi and Chad they are not Hannity's.
Yeah, and the Hanafi that's why in the Hanafi, massage it the do what they do a buyer in English or although and then the email would stand up on the member and deliver his football in pure Arabic.
Even though he knows that the people one time it was in, in overseas in a country
and the masjid was full with brothers from Pakistan, India from different countries. But all of them do not understand that was maybe the only one who understand Arabic and the Imam gave a long hotline Arabic. And I was amazed Yanni what's the point?
What's the point of giving, delivering a speech with a language people don't understand. So the aim here obviously is making a mistake he should speak the language of his own people. But these people are making a bigger mistake because at least they should attend to getting get the blessing of the Juma and it is an obligation upon them to attend Juma another question for the
liquor store beside the masjid.
Yeah, it doesn't affect the budget, but it's not is it's better if not to have a machine in this area beside
The liquor store
that doesn't affect the prayers of people with fitna, if you talk about other political fitna, it's a different story. Yeah.
From time to time
while I explained myself, I said the owner are talking of here, as well as, as Alan mentioned, going to the message, those who go to the message, walk the message, you don't get this reward for praying at all.
Yeah, and I am inclined towards the other group of scholars who said No, I'm saying I'm saying and towards inclined towards the other group of scholars said that you get these rewards this multiplication of rewards for praying in the masjid. not praying Gemma at home.
You can appraise your motto I mean, you will have time to preserve at home when you are extremely tired, sick or you miss the prayer. There is no way for you to go to use the washroom and make Waldo and it takes you time.
And there is no way for you to attend your mouth. You pray at home. You had an excuse? hadn't?
You thought the answer? You'll be making Moodle for in five minutes and you end up using the washroom for half an hour?
For some health reasons will some problems hamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala All right, but you don't get the same rewards. All these rewards might allow anime. If you have a valid excuse you get, do you get the same rewards allow them and I believe that you could. If it is an obligation, you could be relieved from the bottom because there are no who said it is an obligation to pray in the masjid. He says those who pray on purpose in the house. The Salah will be accepted with
any Sahaba Thema their Salat is valid. from a juristic point of view. it's valid, they don't have to do it again. But with some
that is their opinion.
They are okay when you have an excuse there is no issue.
But do you get those rewards allowed to Allah Allah?
I'm not sure if
you can join him. Yeah. Yeah, that's fine to get the rewards of praying together and yeah.
Yeah, even if he's praying so now. What is the Delete YWCA Bharatiya luevano pray a show with us last night. That was his for either his Russia he used to go to his neighborhood they have they had small Masjid there or small masala and he used to be the Imam praying Asia again with his own people. Look Subhana Allah these people are amazing. Yeah, and instead of going home right now, should be going home. It's nighttime, going again to the masjid in his neighborhood, praying he has an email man he used to pray with
a young man who was very tired. He used to take care of cattle during the day and everything. He was a shepherd they think he didn't like it. And he got upset and one time he left and he
equipped the salad with rather than he bred by himself in the machine. And then he wants the next day he went and complained
and complained to the solar system about solar cells and blamed why he did not blame that young man.
Afternoon and are you making your own life? If you lead prayer in Asia and this is a message to every man or every one who leads the Asia prayer and Rasul Allah says lm used to recite more verses in Surah alphazero 40 to 60 to 100 even though we don't do it these days, but that was his son, but he I used to pray recited sub base or one page, like five four or five long as or sub bear or a Shamsi will go haha, well, lately they have shadows and it also does. That was his son sallallahu alayhi wasallam let me finish with the brother who was talking.
You finish okay.
Yeah, he I don't know if these benefits. Another way to motivate you. I don't know what could motivate you.
Until you will be treated as a special guest from the Day of Judgment. With every step, you will get adonijah and one of your senses
raised, the malayaka will be praying for you. So what do you want more than that?
Of course, if you feel like you are weak, you are lazy. Keep saying this to Allah marinella decree kohsuke request Nevada ticket that was the advisor for sama, Salim Kumar, Raja Carrera who knew camera
here in the stories that are turned on and Mr. It doesn't mean that he he hates him if he was giving him mercy. But on a different occasion. He said in the book, Mr. He used to love him. Well, that was great, by the way, but no one is perfect.
No one is perfect. He was a new Muslim, but he was a great scholar and great fucky and after as soon as I saw him, advise him to shorten his prayers, he prayer he started shortening them, following the commandment Rasulullah saw seldom well one time he said in the book, Mr. falletta and Taku defeatable ricola Salah, llama and Niala decree or shukri chorus Neva he said Don't forget to say at the end of every Salat la manga electrico Allah helped me to remember you. We should Creek to thank you, we're hustling evatik and to worship you in the best way. So when you keep saying this to Allah will help you in sha Allah.
Yanni come to the message, you are one of the brothers who come all the time, Mashallah and email us pantalla reward you for that, for that I consider the topic for location
is given by the
I didn't understand
the city make
a multifaith room
you build a separate building, right? A separate building.
This is a massive
there's a big difference between those multifaith rooms in airports and hospitals. You're not talking about these ones, talking about the separate building, in a in an area where we have churches and temples and that's okay.
For places of worship, yeah, and you build a monastery, right? As long as it is a separate building, that's fine. is no problem with that. Any you are not going to lose any reward for that have nothing to do with it. You live in a multicultural society? That's That's fine.
Like, I'm not sure it doesn't seem a permanent place, like a permanent place, right? You don't have zoom as they are and
it's only for Muslims.
You could have an excuse, it could be an excuse for you, because that's very far. If you are there waiting for customers will love. It could be very difficult for you to would drive to any closed Monsieur Danny, if you have the message in the area. Yes, you will have no excuse. That wouldn't be an alternative but in your case, allow you don't have a message in around in that area.
And I think it could be an excuse without Allah.
Allahu Allah miani. Yeah, go ahead.
Well, I this is a Yeah. How far it is a machine is. If you are asking about measurement, I don't have a clear idea about it. There are different opinions about it. But the criteria the time for solace SLM is are you able to hear the other end or not? That was the criteria at the time for sole assassin. So if someone does not hear that, then he could have an excuse. That means he lives far away from the mercy will love to Allah. But as far as our conditions here in town, I believe that driving for 10 minutes or even 15 minutes is not a big deal is not an excuse. Because many brothers have told me that, you know, I have to drive like 1015 minutes to the machine. It's not a big deal
for the sake of Allah for reaping this for the sake of reaping this, you know, collecting this rewards and hassle net.
I would encourage you to go as much as you can.
Lot Alana and if the person feels like he could be lazy by living far from the masjid, this will prevent him from going to the message he should look for another house. If he's if he's renting should rent another place, even if he owes his house for the sake to be close to the message why not selling your house and buying another house beside any message? There are many people actually who do it and they enjoy it and they are happy about vision you say like I own a house beside the messy then you see them like in southwest Missouri, I see them coming to the masjid all the time. They're happy about it. And there are people who are who live beside the message and they don't come
it's a it's a blessing that is given hidayah guidance given to some people by Allah subhanho wa Taala and as I said people will lie I've seen people coming to the weekend school to pick up their children of all time one o'clock and the Gemma eyes any people are praying Shiva thought and he would pick up his children and leaf. I've seen it with my eyes, people doing renovation work as I said, working in the backyard of the message elishama eyes people are praying and then
they have different talk to them, they will try to
some of them they will say okay inshallah inshallah make dua for me.
But you're going to know, our job is to convey the message given us the heart and that's it. In Nicoletta demon Abbott.
There are many social benefits, we didn't talk about them today.
There is no doubt when you keep coming to the message, it will strengthen your relationship with the rest of the brothers.
And you'll have you'll develop a sense of ownership. The people who keep coming to the massage Do you see them sometimes giving a see how trying to help with something, they come up with new ideas about programs, they feel like they belong to the machine. And the people who come once in a while. They don't have that feeling. And some of them will tell you I went to the mercy that I didn't feel like I was welcomed by
welcome This is the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala who you are expecting you to to welcome you in the mercy you want the man to
place a red carpet for you.
When we hear the statement, and this is the house of lights, your individual responsibility come to the mercy that belongs to you. This is your message. And I'm not talking about this message here what I'm talking about any message I'm talking to you live in northwest in southwest and talking about any message I'm talking about all the houses of Allah subhanaw taala I'm not talking about this place. If you live beside this place You are welcome you should come You should be here all the time with us. But if you live in a different area, then you should be going to your mercy in your area all the time and be part of the mercy then help them and give know see how and you'll be a
member strong member of the community that those are the social benefits. You know, the Ursula Salim used to ask about the Sahaba who don't show up.
We would ask but then I didn't see so and so for three or four days. And they will tell him oh he was sick. He's sick and we go visit him.
In a we know people who died in this country and no one knew about them.
One guy in Montreal he died in his apartment building in his apartment. And then he found him about him found out one week or two weeks after he passed away.
But if he comes to the masjid people will miss him. If he comes to the masjid all the time.
We know people one time here they will do genizah Muslims in Nakamura, you're trying to praise your naza on someone.
And then he brought him in and people start asking Who is this? Who is this man and what's his name and no one knew his name. No one knew that we wanted to meet him and didn't know his name.
And he said he has a wife and a daughter outside the message.
But no one knew who he was.
how do you expect people to know you to praise you and aza to make do out for you a fee if they don't show you don't show up. You don't come to the masjid and, and and one of the benefits is also on the Day of Judgment. Some of the pious people will be granted the power to
Make shefa intercession on behalf of their brothers.
Allah subhanaw taala will send some Muslims because of their sins to hellfire. To be clear about it. This is what the Hadith says. So people will be sent to Hellfire and some of the companions and friends close friends, we will be begging Allah. Oh Allah He used to pray with us look at the statement. Oh Allah He used to first with us, Oh Allah. So asking Allah Subhana Allah to allow them to give them the power of intercession cefa and then along with Allah, who will tell them go inside and take them out.
And unless I know to Allah would forbid the fire from burning those people do spires people who are coming and looking for their friends and companions.
He will, he will, like it's easy for our last plantilla to do it.
He stopped the fire from burning Abraham and Sarah so it's easy for him to do it. So they will look inside and look for them they will find them and they will he will take them out. This is a type of Shiva that will be given out to prophets and messengers to pious people who used to do good is to believe in Allah Subhana Allah perform am Allah saleha in this dunya and they will remember their friends and their family members.
Yeah, you catch the reward of the brother is asking about how can we catch the reward of the gamma if we are late. If we're coming late to salaat you get the reward of the Gema if you catch one or a guy with the
iPhone, if you join the gym, I was the mommy's doing the last dish out.
The rewards are gone. There is no reward for Gemma.
So if you catch one our car and the email Mercer was doing the record of the last record and you made record with him. Then hamdulillah now
Yeah, I just got like, some room and he said it could be weak. They had different statements about it. Lately, I found out that she called me and he said it sorry. So I felt Jani Chahal, one is an expert in Heidi. So I felt it could be so hey,
the other foot the brother is asking about the seven groups who will be under a shade of Allah's throne on the Day of Judgment. So we said the first one is just ruler. And the second one we said, the youth who grew up in the worship of Allah. And
a third, we said, the third a man whose heart is attached to the machine, this is the fourth man is a two people who love each other for the sake of Allah, the meeting on that and departing upon that we love each other for the sake of Allah. There is no other connection between them. They don't belong to the same country. They don't belong to the same culture, the same Kabira
they don't speak the same language, maybe, maybe they are from different countries, but they are Muslims, they meet in the masjid matter. And they love each other. For the sake of Allah subhanaw taala there is no other interest in between them, they can because people might love each other for the sake of something else like matter and the have the same interest. They watch both of them like to watch my favorite basketball games or hockey games, or you know what I mean? And they keep talking about it. That's a different issue. But these two people love each other for the sake of Allah, and a man who was invited by a woman of beauty and position to commit illegal intercourse.
And he said, I fear a lot.
So that's number five. And a man who gave a charity who donated in charity, and he hides it. He hides his charity to the extent that his left hand did not know what his right hand has given
to trying his best to hide his charity, his donation. And the last one. Number seven is a man who remember the last panatela in private. And he said to us
remember the last fighter by himself because if you shed tears in front of people
shaitan might come to you and say you're trying to fake or trying to make yourself look pious and good in front of people. So don't check tears in front of people. But this man is doing it by a privacy. So it is an indication of his class and sincerely
He felt remember the last pantalla ophira his relationship with Allah. And then he was shedding tears. So they they are it's easier. Ah, it's not very difficult. Some of them some, some of them are not very difficult, right?
Like the donation part and loving someone for the sake of Allah. What's wrong with you love your brother for the sake of Allah? He's a good he's a pious man he's, I love him for the sake of Allah, it's easy, right? Just pay attention to these things and then Shall I get this reward? Now, I think Okay, the last two minutes, because I should stop here 945
I answered this question I don't have if you are asking about measurement.
Casa Casa Rocky, the former head the former head. This ad it is 48 miles, which is
from the from the city, and from Calgary to Edmonton 300 kilometers. But if you are traveling to a place that is located more than 80 kilometers, then it is a valid legitimate travel and you can you can start shortening your prayers, or making Gemma if you want.
How you going to calculate from your house, man, it's difficult, right?
In Google, how people I mean, how about people in the old days didn't have Google and didn't have his maps and
it's difficult they are making trying to make it difficult to yourself from your town, that you start benefiting from this Rojas The moment you leave the boundaries of your city.
He cannot benefit you cannot make benefits from disruption while still in town. Even if you are in the airport, you are about to take the plane. You don't shorten your prayer until you take the plane and the plane leaves the city limits
and then you can benefit from this Rojas if you are going for a long trip. 80 kilometers and above. Okay, one question left.
You know, eating garlic and onions is not heroin. And I believe here I'm not inclined. I believe that smoking is harder.
is a sin.
Hello, lamotta. You better hurry ya will have I believe that smoking is one of the Habad
has a bad smell waste of money. It will hurt you hurt your health. It might hurt your marital relationship, your relationship with your family members.
So there is no good there's no i don't see I don't see any benefit in smoking.
social benefits. There are social benefits in drinking wine drinking and gambling. Right. But this is not an excuse.
Yeah, yeah. social benefits. Yeah, people get together and they smoke together and
it is haram. So
yes, if the smell is very strong, the person who and it happened to me I prayed behind beside someone who just had a cigarette, I think and the smell was very strong. And it was very disturbing. I was disturbed in my salad in half.
So when you do that when I do that, actually I will be hurting people around me. I'll be offending the melodica in the message. And we are not supposed to do it because it is Hara. Hello, Johanna. She's akula Hayden's panic alone over Hamdi shadow Allah Allah I learned Mr. Furukawa to buoy Lake
regarding moving our sisters I have to be clear about it. And he also likes SLM said let him know EMA Allah Hema says the law.
We cannot sell out to her nephew boo Tina. Hi Rhonda Honda. And he said do not prevent women from coming to the massage. Even though they're solid in their houses is better than their prayer in the massage. They are solid in their houses is better than they are solid in the in the message.
This is the introduction of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam that she gets rewards. Of course Allah Subhana Allah generous
Allah Allah subhanaw taala will treat everyone with justice on the Day of Judgment. It is the sharing of Rasulullah Salim that he say that it is better for you all amateur law, female slave of Allah that you pray at home, you perform your Salat at home. But if you want to come to the message You are welcome. This is the house of Allah subhanaw taala because Allah has made it clear did not prevent them from do not stop them from going to the masjid even though there's a lot in their houses is better than praying in the masjid without Allah Allah coming to the halaqaat is better for them because they don't have you know, opportunity didn't Yeah, it's a good opportunity for our
sisters to meet each other come to the Holocaust and listen to the Holocaust. It's good but bring the five daily prayers maybe it's better for them to pray in the in the in their houses based on the instruction of Rasulullah sallallahu. She's a cool thing.
