when Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam used to stand up in the nighttime, he got so deep into so deep into it, listen to this hadith once the heart became, and he saw the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam praying in his night prayer, and he went and joined him.
He joined the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in prayer. And of course, who wouldn't love to join the Prophet sallallahu is in prayer, but this was his nightly prayer. This was his private prayer. This was the one that he didn't make it short for the people behind him because there's not supposed to be anyone behind him. It's him, one to one with Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam started and he says, When the Prophet said, Allah has prayed, he prayed every single idea, slowly and steadily to the extent that I could count the letters he was saying, Allah, you know, one is to count the words how many words are saying, one is so slow that you can count the letters, there'll
be as slow as this, possibly possibly close this out.
He can kita boo, Roy fee, who then more than happy if I go as slow as that I can count the lettuce. But if I go faster than that, if I say the early kale key Taboola array, but if he gets way too much for me to count, right? So he must have been going slow as as the first time I do. And he said, Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, he read Surah Fatiha. Then he started surah baqarah and each time he read a verse, I thought, okay, he's going to go to recovery in a short while and he kept on reading and kept on reading and reading kept on reading. And he kept on reading and every time he came to an IR where he's supposed to ask Allah for something he kept on repeating it again and
again. For example of the
Dean do Nia Hassan and morphing wanting has been
washed in Piemonte Hassan and down
and he would repeat it. Rob burner.
Finn Irati Rati has been wifing him Lottie has been
and unrepeated. And every time he came to something to seek Allah's refuge, he would seek Allah's refuge and save again and again. And the Sahaba thought loop was seven was a maximum, the province of Allah Allah isn't going to read well to the end of surah baqarah and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam reached the end of Surah Baqarah. And he didn't go into RUCO. He started Surah Nisa.
And the Sahaba is thinking this is getting very long now. And the prophets of Allah has been carried on till he finished all the verses revealed up to that time of Surah Nisa. And then he started sort of earlier Imran and he recited Surah Al Imran, you know how much all of this is, this is almost if we count all of the iPads revealed, and it's about five years, maybe not all the iPads revealed by that point, it would have been at least three or four years. That's a long time in that rhythmic thing to read. It's a long time, it's probably about I don't know, probably might be an hour, hour and a half could be hour and a half. I don't know.
So Oh, could be an hour at least. So he's standing the old way with the prophecy last night, you're standing that long, it's going to it's going to be paying you Okay, now the Prophet sallallahu is and finally goes into ruku. So when he goes into court, it's a relief. It's a relief, because you're gonna recoup and you know what it Hassan, he says, he says his record was as long as he's standing. Allahu Akbar. And the and you might think, Wow, that is that is long. Now. I'm not asking any of you guys to do that tonight. Okay, seriously, you won't be able to manage it. This is a person building his Salah to a wonderful, wonderful point. This is our Prophet sallallahu sallam. And he said that
he's standing up for that was same as his ruku. And his sujood was same as the ruku and he and the sahabi. He said, I want you to break my salon go.
Now, now it's not for everybody. Now I'm not asking everyone to do this. I'm asking for us to do a five minute instead of taking two minutes for two tickets. Take five
minutes for two records.
You guys can take five minutes, take four minutes, take them all the time. So normal people will do two records in two minutes.
Normal people, two records two minutes. Fast people will do two records in one and a half minutes to recap probably in one minute. That's really fast. Okay, if you can do two rockets in four minutes, three to four minutes, that's very good. If you can take two rockets and you can stretch it a bit more than that's excellent. And all I'm asking for if you can double the time for two rockets, say three to four minutes if you can double it, you'll see you'll you'll you'll get better and better and you'll enjoy more in fact when you stand there sometimes you will not want to you know some people think let me share share a secret with you some people think that

I said for Salah you know, fine and even Tara we should be moderate. Tara we shouldn't be that slow. But you know, some places in taraweeh they go drome drome drome drome drome drome they want to just finish it
