brothers and sisters,

00:00:13--> 00:00:57

we're in a time where people are actually starting to question the basics of our Deen. Now, it's so easy these days to connect up, and to go onto the internet and to find so many videos even on your phone. And people get all sorts of ideas and they're questioning the very basics of it. Now one of the bases I want to talk to you about is the Arabic our religion is based upon certain things done in pure Arabic, certain things read and recited in Arabic language only. So for example, the Salah, or the prayer that we do, from the beginning to the end, from Allahu Akbar all the way to said, I want everyone to have Allah, everything in there is Arabic. And some people are questioning this and

00:00:57--> 00:01:09

saying, Well, why can't I do it in my own language. And you might have seen a couple of videos where people are saying, Allahu Akbar, and then the saying, in the name of my Lord, the Most Gracious, the most beneficial,

00:01:11--> 00:01:24

all praise due to Allah, the Lord of the universe, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. And you can do that. And you can try and do Salah, but one thing you should understand is,

00:01:26--> 00:01:28

is your Salah going to be accepted?

00:01:29--> 00:02:08

Because any action that we do in the religion has to be according to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and how he showed us the action, we need to follow suit. Now you can carry on doing Salah like that, but will your Salah be accepted? That's a big question, what's the point of doing a Salah for half your life or your full life like that and ending up on the day Jasmine? And Allah says, Well, I said clearly in the Quran, that you're supposed to follow my Prophet, and my Prophet was the one who would show you how to pray, and you fail to, to follow my Prophet, and therefore your Salah is not accepted. Now that's why what I want to say to you is we need to do in Arabic, because that's

00:02:08--> 00:02:53

how it was done in the prophets time, the Sahaba went to many different lands, and each land they went to, they met people of all sorts of languages, okay, they went all the way to Azerbaijan, they went to India, they went to Africa, they went to Southern Europe. But each time they came to a new land, and they sort of people with a new language, they just demonstrating for them a Salah, and a way of reciting in Arabic. And that's how it's been for 14 centuries. people today are now saying, well, we need to sort of doing do it in our own language. Now we've got two extremes and understand there's one extreme that will do the Salah. And when they do the Salah, they just won't understand

00:02:53--> 00:03:34

anything for life. I mean, that's one extreme please go outside there and learn how to understand what you're saying in your Salah. It's a very essential part of your of your religion. That's one extreme people not understanding what the saying the other extreme are those people who want to do it in their own language because they they kind of want to feel connected. Now there's an in between pathway which is do it in Arabic, but try and relate the Arabic words that there are not that many words in the whole of the Salah, try and relate those Arabic words to the meanings in your mind. And if you do it again and again, when you say Alhamdulillah here, Abdullah Al amin, you will actually

00:03:34--> 00:04:22

be thinking of All praise is due to Allah The Lord of the worlds that will actually automatically be in your head when you when you go over the meaning again and again. Now some people say, Well, how can I ask Allah for something unique in my Salah. Let's say my novel prayer I want to ask Allah for something unique in my Salah. Well, I'll give you a quick quick phrase that you can say in your sajida when you go in You're such that you say Allahu Mandala zucchini hadda Allahumma zoek nee hadda Our Lord grant me this Allah who model this or rather Allah home model, Zoo, Ernie Hannah, Allah grant me this Allah grant me this when you go in such that Korean repeating that and think of

00:04:22--> 00:04:38

the thing that you want from Allah, and inshallah you've asked your prayer from Allah because you don't know Arabic. You can use the simple da to ask Allah to give you something. But again, let's avoid trying to change our entire Deen in the basics because of the of the

00:04:40--> 00:04:49

sort of, I would say, the misconstrued understanding of certain individuals of what our religion really is. Is that Mohave wacka Donna
