00:01:13--> 00:01:21

Here, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam leads the MBR at a minimal Salatu was Salam in prayer.

00:01:22--> 00:02:19

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala raises the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to the first heaven when he meets Adam, Allah in your Salatu was Salam malherbe have been via Solly II when you give me a solid Welcome to the righteous Nabhi and the righteous son.

Yeah, it is said that he saw Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam. And Ibrahim looks most like Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:03:11--> 00:04:04

Imagine being woken up in your belly, you're comfortable, you're happy. You're okay, you're sleeping PRPs and you're woken up by angels and all of a sudden you rock the seventh heaven. At this juncture, when he meets Ibrahim Alayhi Salatu was Salam. It's a point of comfort for him because he sees someone who looks like him. And then he's taken up further beyond the seventh heaven where he has Cerebral clammy, the writing of the pens on the scrolls. You know how every time you do something or when you are going to do something something that's written for your future. Allah subhanho wa Taala writes it down whatever you do is written down by the angels. He years the writing

00:04:04--> 00:04:59

of the pens on the scrolls, and then he goes up even further and he meets a lot of will is that you will each other. It is said that here in this juncture at this point where there is you illumination, there is peace, comfort all majesty imagine standing before a wound there is that you will July you make the one who fashion Do you have Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is given the gift of a Salah the gift that we continue to perform until today. If we pause here for a moment and look at the rest of the commandments that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down, then we realize that he actually sent them down from the heavens to the earth. And when he came to us Salah he wrote

00:05:00--> 00:05:52

eased Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam elevated him up to him, and then gave him this gift of Salah. If we find ourselves in a position where we sometimes don't even pray or will compromise our prayer for our businesses and for our family, and for tasks that we are doing, or perhaps we sometimes just do it purely out of laziness. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was raised above the seven heavens to be given this gift of Salah. And it is prescribed to him and spliff. De units have prayer in the day or 50 prayers in the day and the night so not units. But 50k is in the day and the night one day one night firstly prayers. It then comes down to Musa Elena Salatu was Salam.

00:05:53--> 00:06:43

And Musa asks him what happened up there? I'd like to know what went down tell me what's going on. What did you come back with? And he says, I've been prescribed 50 prayers in the day and the Knights Musa lay the solid to a Salam says swimming in the ocean in a coma Kayla up Puna Derek, you Your people will not be able to do that image of love to Benissa eel I tried with bamboo is slightly and they were not able to do so. So go back for J kilo because alphatech FEAF go back to your Lord and ask him for less. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes back up to Allah subhanho wa Taala and he asks him for less. And then he comes down with 10 less to Musa alayhis salat wa salam. And he

00:06:43--> 00:07:29

says what happened? He says I've now got 14. So he says from Allah because no fee go back to you Lord, and ask him for less. Your people won't manage 40 So he goes back and in this fashion back and forth, up and down, up and down. Until he comes back was only five prayers in the day in the night and Musa salatu salam tells him in nakoma Kala up your own. You people will not be able to do this. Go back and ask your Lord for less. And he says I can't. I can't. How can I go back? He started at 50 We're at five right now. How can I go back and ask him Colace Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes back to the earth.

00:07:31--> 00:08:00

He comes back to the earth with this gift of a Salah. I'd like to draw our attention to something in the same manner that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went up to receive the Prayer. You can actually perform your own man lodge to Allah subhanho wa Taala five times a day. All you have to do Allah Allahu Akbar, Allah is the Greatest and if you see him in front of you,

00:08:01--> 00:08:50

that is your own form of Miraj, yes, it will not be in the physical manner that it happened with a messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who indeed how are you helping Allah, he was the best of creation of Allah subhanho wa taala. But you can imagine Allah subhanho wa Taala before you are a Buddha, Allah canal Mecca Talamh worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as though you see him as though he is before you, he is in front of you, you are interacting with him. The inlanta Contao HuFa in Naboo your luck for if you do not see him and you if you are not able to do so that he is able to see you at least know that much that my make is watching me his eyes on me. He knows what I'm doing.

00:08:51--> 00:09:42

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says something to solder V or V now in Spain, where the Arc de massa and I have divided Salah into two paths between me and myself in 10 for my servant will be that when she asks that either fall in love Do I have having to learn you're being mad at me on Allah min Hamadani D. When my sermon says, Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds Allah says, My servant has praised me. Imagine in this hadith could see where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is relating and narrating to us, that which Allah has said.

00:09:43--> 00:09:49

Allah says that he responds to your remembrance of him.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

Me, Allah subhanho wa Taala is responding to me, the week servants who can't let go of the sins that are

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

I'm committing Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala converses with me, Allah Allahu Akbar. How can we then say and hamdulillah Ramadan mean and rush through our Salah how when you know Allah subhanho wa Taala is responding to you

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

by email. I do

00:10:20--> 00:11:25

our manual Rafi when the services are not manual Brahim, the All Merciful, this especially merciful, Allah responds, as Nike ID, my servant has praised me in excess, for either fall in love do matter you can hear me doing so when the servant says, Owner of the Day of Judgment, Allah responds by saying, manager Danny I did, my servant has glorified me, Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking to you, Allah subhanho wa Taala is conversing with you, now's the time to pour your heart out to him. Now's the time to think of him to let those emotions of, of love and happiness and joy and sorrow and sadness, let them mount to Allah subhanho wa Taala talk to your mate converse with him. You know, we

00:11:25--> 00:11:49

have enough time to build a relationship in this dunya with a human being that is just as weak as, as us so even weak. We have enough time to get married and be intimate with a human being such that you reach a point where you love each other and you can talk to each other and you can confide in each other and you can trust each other.

00:11:51--> 00:12:45

And we don't have time for Allah, the maker who fashioned us, He who placed us on Earth in the first place. We really don't have time to talk to him, to converse with him, to let out our emotions to him to tell him that I'm really sad today Allah I really need you Oh Allah. You know, this has happened to me cry to him, he cares. Perhaps the person you cry to in this world doesn't even really care for you. But the thing Allah, this being that is like, like no other really cares for you. He will change your life and he has the capacity to change things for you. When there are whole violators salat wa salam had lost a son. He didn't complain to the human beings around him. He

00:12:45--> 00:12:53

didn't tell them that this is what I'm going through. I can't take it any longer. I've gone blind from solo in

00:12:54--> 00:13:22

school, that fee will lose me in Omaha. I complain of my sorrow and my sadness to ALLAH SubhanA water height. And this is how he circumstances his circumstance changed. You find that use of Elijah Salatu was Salam is reunited with his father. Why? Because he complained to Allah subhanho wa taala. When

00:13:23--> 00:13:45

a you Elijah salatu salam was touched with harm he went through so much so much of illness, so much difficulty for years on end and he said that he lost so many of his family members as well. Then he says in the misogyny of

00:13:47--> 00:14:40

our hormone auki me harm has touched me Oh ALLAH and you are the most most Merciful. You are the Most Merciful of those who are merciful. And Allah subhana wa Taala lifts up his problems relieves him of his heart ache and he's returned back to normal health sound and Okay, when lastly returned back to Allah subhanho wa Taala when lastly we beg of Allah subhanho wa Taala when Lastly, we really place our heads on the ground for our makeup when is that you will July the one who fashioned you place your nose where it is your mouth where it is gave you a respiratory system and the reproductive system and a circulatory system where your blood and your veins and everything works in

00:14:40--> 00:14:59

conjunction with each other, simultaneously functioning so that you never go wrong until you realize one day when something goes wrong, how valuable just that one eye is or just how valuable that liver issue like kidney is. You can place your head on the ground for him. You can think about him you can't ask

00:15:00--> 00:15:53

him, why not? Why not so insane? You know, it is the plot of shaytan to stop you from thinking of Allah subhanho wa Taala in your Salah. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us, tells us of a devil known as Kinzel. Oh Hunza kingdoms job is literally as soon as you say Allahu Akbar, Allah is the Greatest. He's poking and prodding you. Hey, stop, stop right now. Don't say that. Think about this. Think about that. You know, let's take your mind back to where you were yesterday and the day before and in the future where you will be anything besides Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So persona, allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that when he does this, when you become

00:15:53--> 00:16:05

distracted, they say are all Dubey learn you in a shame volume regime in your Salah, and turn to your left slightly, well yet full nine year salary, he

00:16:06--> 00:16:21

lets me speak very lightly on his side to the left, three times. And when I say split, or when that hadith says split, it doesn't mean you literally go gather everything in your mouth, and go

00:16:23--> 00:16:28

do it on the person next to you. And he's not Satan, he's not the devil pile.

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

You know, basically say,

00:16:32--> 00:17:28

without any split coming out. And if you are in JAMA in a gathering, then perhaps what you can do is take your handkerchief out, or put it into your arm and do it there instead of instead of actually splitting where a person feels like you're splitting on them. So this basically ends that we start from the devil, you've sought refuge in Allah subhanahu Attallah, from the accursed devil. This is one of the ways in which we can actually get rid of any distractions in our salah. But I'd like to talk about something before Salah that we are doing that we are engaged in how many of us are on our phones, going through tick tock, Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook, and so much more. And we're

00:17:29--> 00:18:18

literally going through real after real looking at different things for hours on end. And then we want to quickly rush into our salah, all those images that you that are that you were seeing a now going through your mind. You see that man that you were looking at, oh, wow, he's got abs. Amazing. Wow, she's got legs and so on and so forth and so forth. Excuse my language, excuse my language, I know that it might sound a bit vulgar to the older generation, but what Allah he this is what is happening. Wallah. And this is what's happening. You know we going through this stuff on a day to day basis, we can spend hours on end on it. And then at the last minutes, let's think of the

00:18:18--> 00:19:05

situation. How many times has done what has been said, Allah luck, one luck one, or the very phone that you are sitting on. Scrolling through access these words Allah is the Greatest Allah is the Greatest. The app is on your phone, you hear it, you quickly silent, put it on silent. And then you scroll through one, two more videos. And those one, two more videos, another 100 Because you keep going and going and I've got two hours to pray. It's okay. Allah doesn't require me to pray right now right here. So I'll play on Play. And then when it's five minutes left, you take one minute to make your elbow three minutes to play, you're done and you're back onto your phone. Why?

00:19:06--> 00:19:23

Why couldn't you wait to be with these human beings that you're interacting with that you watch him half the time you don't even know them? You don't even have a physical relationship with them. You don't you've never met them in your life. But you can't wait to go back to them.

00:19:25--> 00:19:54

And you can leave your maker you can rush through your salon with your maker why? Towards the end and for what reason? And what have you achieved from that anyways in the first place? You know what I understand that human beings are curious by nature and sometimes you want to see what's going on in this person's life in that person's life. Alhamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala as long as it's not haram, ALLAH SubhanA Mortalis allows you to do that. It's okay. Let's spend an hour spend two.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

It's not an hour that we spend. It's not to go into your phone. Go on to

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

The app that tells you how long you spend on on the first three or four or five apps, and you will notice that it's five to six hours a day, four hours a day, three hours a day. Really do you have to spend that long just looking at somebody else's life, that is a perfect picture that they have painted for you. They don't tell you that they go to the toilet as well. They don't tell you that they need the bathroom as well. They don't tell you all the rubbish that's going on in their life and how that they're going through as well. They're human beings just like you have problems just like you. They don't tell you all of that. And you look at it and you become depressed. I've got

00:20:43--> 00:21:30

such a sad life. This is what social media really does to you. But we're not here to talk about social media. We're here to talk about salah to at least 20 minutes before your salon 15 minutes before your Salah, put the phone aside set it aside put it on silent. Why? Because I'm going to mind maker now. I'm going to meet him and I'd love to meet him with my mind empty. Take your time making your wallow deliberately thinking of the sins falling of each arm and your face and your hair and your feet. Think about this picture in your mind think of Allah subhanahu Attallah been happy with you. And then say Allah was born with a clear mind once you really mean it.

00:21:31--> 00:21:52

Because when you say it with the with a clear mind, you really mean Allah, He's the greatest. He is the only being that matters right now. I surrender my life to him. I've come empty handed Oh Allah, You are the greatest and I declare that I acknowledge it and I admit it to Allah urine for you.

00:21:53--> 00:22:43

So, these are some of the ways that we can employ to enjoy our salah. You see the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a solid form of concentration. But if we take a look at the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will realize that his life was very different to ours. So if an ibis Rahim Allah Who to Allah, He says that I spent the night with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, at my aunt's house may Munna may want to have the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he says that the pillow that that he had, I slept on one side and the messengers are Allahu Allah, He will send them slept on the other, or he slept on the length of the

00:22:43--> 00:23:27

pillow and I slept on the width of the pillow and just before the middle part of the night, or just just after the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wakes up and he rubs the sleep out of his eyes gets hold of some water cooled water that was in a scheme that was known as Shang so this skin despite the heat of the desert would keep the water cool, it gets hold of this opens it has a little bit matrouh And then he reads the verses in as he is on our T one T team in a new one

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

was seen as you need anyone

00:23:33--> 00:23:35

to be owning and

00:23:36--> 00:23:53

indeed in the creation of the heavens and earth and the changing of the nighttime the day our science for those who ponder and Levine is gonna Allah have BML moonwalk or oanda, why Allah you know, being

00:23:54--> 00:23:57

known as he is watching

00:23:58--> 00:24:12

those who remember loves to kind of go to Allah when standing while sitting and once on the sides, and they think can they ponder in the creation of the heavens and the earth? Or better?

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

to

00:24:17--> 00:24:18

15

00:24:20--> 00:24:28

our Lord, You have not created this in vain. Our Lord, You have not created this in vain.

00:24:29--> 00:24:59

So protect us from the fire. Why did Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recite the last 10 verses of Surah Al in mind because in these verses Allah mentioned of the creation of the heavens and the earth, by Allah subhanho wa Taala the mention of people of intellect to ponder over all of this, if you ponder over the fact that Allah subhanahu wa taala created all of this and then you stand up. Imagine where your heart is.

00:25:00--> 00:25:22

Imagine what's in your heart at that point when you stand before you make, and you realize the magnanimity of Allah subhanho wa taala. You think of the heavens and the earth and the universe out there and the stars and the galaxies, and then you realize and Allah created all of this, this points to one being Allah.

00:25:23--> 00:25:38

And then you stand before that make of yours, that will make all the difference in the world. So sudo allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited these verses and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he actually

00:25:40--> 00:26:21

washed his face with cold water he made will do with cold water. Why? Because it woke him up. He robbed the sleep out of his eyes, you see the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam having who for who show having concentration, presence of mind and heart and soul and body for Allah subhanho wa Taala before you really entered into his prayer, this is why the prayer of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam led him to Tia and made his heart to tremble and let him to the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala until he will perform Salah such that you feed would swell up.

00:26:22--> 00:26:31

You see, this is what he did before you set up what is the Buddha to our salah. What have we done to prepare to meet our makeup?

00:26:32--> 00:27:22

The end of the Hadith to end of the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam performance, how units of prayer and even our best Rahim Allah to Allah he says that once we started the prayer, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gets hold of my ear, and he massages it gently. He massages it gently during the prayer. Why? To draw his attention to Allah subhanahu Attallah to tell him, now's the time. Now you've got to concentrate. Now you've got to think of Allah subhanho wa taala. So he says that then he performed 12 units of prayer, and he ended off with one and that was the end of his prayer of the night. 13 Mkhize of Salah 12 units of prayer, tu tu tu tu tu and then he ended off

00:27:22--> 00:27:53

with one and that was the end of the prayer for sudo allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and bearing in mind that the salah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved Salam so much was really that overall to me the salam the coolness of my eyes have been placed in Salah he would actually wake up every night to perform that salah. Yeah. Are you muslim middle booming, Leila in love or isla. Oh, the one who covers

00:27:54--> 00:28:29

stand up at night for half the night or less. For half the night or less. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did this on a regular basis stood up for Allah subhanho wa Taala couldn't wait until he went to his Maker behind the land. Bring peace and comfort to us with the salah who beloved make the make we are done. We can't wait to go to Allah subhanho wa Taala what is our attitude? How do we think of all Salah will be with Allah subhanahu wa

00:28:30--> 00:29:16

you know, as perfect as your standing is in this world. And as perfect as you make it in this world. Allah subhanho wa Taala will perfect your standing before you on the piano. Imagine someone wants to tell you and this is from the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam suddenly selected more during the home the salah of a person who's bidding farewell, one who's leaving this world. Imagine someone were to tell you that after the Salah, you climbed down into your grave and you lay down there or we're going to lay you down there and then the dust is all going to be gathered over you and that's your last salah. You're going to meet your maker now. What kind of solid would that

00:29:16--> 00:29:42

be? It would be a solid form of the concentration full of presence of heart and mind and soul and body. Why? Because I'm going to meet a lot of you talk to Allah you pour your heart out to him you're begging for forgiveness. And only when you were satisfied that Allah subhanho wa Taala was had forgiven you you felt that Allah subhanho wa Taala had forgiven you would you end that salah?

00:29:44--> 00:29:59

You know what? One day, the prayer that you last prayed will be your loves. So if you make every prayer like it's your last, then one day that will come true. One day you will stand before you will make after your last prayer

00:30:00--> 00:30:44

So it's about time that we change our lives. It's about time that we think about what we're doing with our lives. We're not saying don't take your time out to go and spend time with your family get to enjoy your life. Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't need you to live a miserable life. He placed you on earth to worship Him and to enjoy of the dunya and joy of the dunya living the dunya you live in hell he placed you here he didn't place you in Jannah he placed you here on earth with all of the trials and tribulations. Yes, you will be rewarded for it. Enjoy your life. At the same time, the few moments that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you has given you 25 hours 24 hours in the day,

00:30:44--> 00:31:21

24 hours in the day, and you can't give him half an hour for your Salah to be perfect, perfect. Half an hour, literally 45 minutes that's all you need to take out of your day to ensure that your Salah is perfect before Allah subhanho wa Taala it's hard. It's it is it's difficult. Nobody is saying it's easy. Nobody is saying that you can easily just get up and do it and it will happen in your life you have to fight yourself for it was stopping Riley what more can you say it was a bit early learners and who carries Zook when asked people to

00:31:23--> 00:32:08

command your family to perform that salah? Command your family to do that Salaam and be patient upon it. I really patients in your Salah? You just performing it? No, because you need to find yourself as much as your soul wants to drift and go away from Allah. No, no, come back here we have you standing before Allah. And one day you will get that prayer right? One day you will perform it right. And when you do, you won't want to leave that feeling that you get, you know, sometimes you ask yourself, again, you know, you ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah again and again for something, you keep asking them and you keep asking him and the answer doesn't come. But in that process of

00:32:08--> 00:32:55

asking him in that process of begging him, you freed sweetness in your prayers such that it becomes more sweet to you. This net which you have asked for and want to spousal Allah please grant me a spouse grant me a spousal Allah grant me you know wealth Allah, Allah grant me a chi Allah want a Ferrari, Allah want the Cybertech to Allah. And you keep asking Allah, Allah doesn't give it to you. But you find sweet sweetness and joy in that prayer such that you give it up just for that sweetness to continue with that sweetness in your Salah. This is really and truly the gift of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah upon us. It is given you sweetness in your prayer, Allah and he, there's nothing that

00:32:55--> 00:33:38

can replace that. There's literally nothing in this world that can replace that. And this is why we find that the river brothers and sisters really come on to the dean. Why? Because they've tasted darkness. And then when that light enters their hubs, many of them find it easy to find the Dean easier than the life that they led before. They know that it's a deep dark pit. And that's all that there is out there. So they find peace they find happiness in the salon in the connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala if tasted would darknesses like and I'm not encouraging you to go there and taste of the darkness. You know, if Allah has blessed you and you born into a Muslim family, thank Allah

subhanho wa Taala be grateful to him. You see so the last part of the ayah is very interesting ALLAH SubhanA Mortalis is learners alkalis calm. We don't ask you for sustenance. We don't ask you for sustenance now known as Zuhlke we will sustain you we will sustain you Why is Allah subhanho wa Taala talk about this now because so many of us give up our Salah

00:34:05--> 00:34:29

for business, give up our Salah for a deal, give up our Salah to attain the little bit of this dunya Allah subhanahu wa Tyler's Allah subhanho wa Taala is literally telling you that give that up. Why? Because if you come to me now known as Zuko, we will take care of you. We will provide for you, we will sustain you.

00:34:30--> 00:35:00

Try it out the next time and Allah subhanaw taala does test people in this manner, especially when you're in business, you know, you're about to conclude a deal. And if you waited five more minutes in that meeting, you'd miss your Salah, you'd miss your Salah, but you get a deal. Try it out, give up that business, let it go for Allah subhanahu wa taala it's useless. It doesn't matter why because Allah subhanaw taala matters more and on

losses panelboards Allah will give you way more than you never imagined. When telehealth Allah, He shade and Allah, Allah will hire me. I want to leave something for Allah, Allah will give him much better than that not only in the US, but in this dunya as well. You see, so some of the tips that we can actually use to perform our Salah in the correct manner is to remember Allah Subhana Allah to Allah before our salah, welcoming Salah into the country and establishing the Salah for my remembrance, the only way you really going to remember Allah in your Salah is to remember him before and out of your Salah. If you remember him out of your Salah and you constantly think of him, Allah

00:35:44--> 00:36:21

subhanahu wa taala will make it easy for you to think of him in your Salah. See whack you know this toothbrush is something that can help you in your Salah. Imagine you go to Allah some kind of what hallowed smelly breath and you will now and your inner Salah people next to you are distracted. The sky is somebody you know, what is he eaten before he came here? And then you belching away and so on and so forth. And this happens in Ramadan. And we know that very well I think we've all experienced it you have

00:36:22--> 00:36:50

a uncle next to you and it's basically all you know, why do you go to Allah subhanaw taala in this manner, why can't you brush your teeth take time out to bounce at home Walk at home and I know there's a very short period of time in the UK so help as much as you want at home do what you on purpose home and okay. Don't do it in the masjid avoid doing it in the masjid. What please don't eat that which is

00:36:51--> 00:36:55

I really don't know what people eat to be honest with you. So

00:36:57--> 00:37:33

that's just on the lighter side of things. But basically, clean your mouth before you go to Allah subhanho wa Taala and it will help your Salah because the month that you using to remember Allah is now clean, the angels feel fine and okay to approach you and be around you this presence of mind and heart and you there before Allah so kind of what social media we've already spoken about it, avoid using it for 2015 to 20 minutes before and time of Salah is very important. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:37:34--> 00:38:22

in the Salah, Turkana, Thailand meaning Akita by Maputo, indeed Salah is prescribed upon the believers at a specific time. So if you perform that Salah at the beginning part of the time, it's easier for you to render it to Allah subhana wa taala. Then when you wait, and you say it's okay, there's still time, it becomes harder and harder. And many of us have actually experienced where you continue to do this until the time of Salah has actually lapsed in totality. And the next Salah has slipped in why I couldn't you just perform it at the starting at the first part. And you will find that it is easier for you to pray at this time, it's easier for you to think of Allah subhanahu

00:38:22--> 00:38:24

Attallah focus on him.

00:38:25--> 00:38:37

Ponder over the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala ponder over the Ayat of Allah subhanho wa taala. During your prayer, those of us who don't understand Arabic,

00:38:38--> 00:39:22

go through certain verses every day or every week, and decide that this week, I'm going to pray these verses in my salah. Until you've got a database of verses that you understand and can ponder over during your Salam. It will make it easy for you to ponder over these verses. And eventually you won't have to look through them because now it's in my brain is there I don't need to look through them. And I keep going through different verses. So you don't become tired. normally and naturally human beings you become tired of something that's repetitive. You keep doing it, you keep doing it, you keep doing you become tired. Now Dana can call them and solopreneurs does. And so we'll go to

00:39:22--> 00:39:59

schools, right? The easiest and the easiest to say and take your time to look through other versus look through. If you could see what does it mean Allah is describing himself? And this is why I like going through verses that actually describe Allah subhanaw taala develop a nurse. Why? Because you're actually standing before that maker. It's isn't it good to actually think of him with his qualities. And his names. Think of what he actually looks like. Imagine that before your eyes. There is nothing wrong with this. Just don't describe it to the next man.

00:40:00--> 00:40:48

Because whatever you think of Allah subhanho wa Taala is different to that. That you're allowed to think of him you're allowed to imagine him in his physical being. Because he says all of a sudden allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says or Moodle Allah, Tala worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as though you see him, may Allah subhanahu wa taala. Grant us sincerity and may Allah subhanahu Allah grant us crucial in our Salah May Allah subhanho wa Taala make the salam that we perform a means of our entry into Jana and a light for us on the Day of piano as well as you know creatives, I mean are some of us will send them over a car and while he he will be many
