Smilla Rahmanir Rahim wa salatu salam ala and Babu Rahmatullah al Amin and abhi in our heavy bin Mohammed in sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salim Ahmed
desert Kamala Haven exile Kamala Fabian for granting me this opportunity to the present before you discussing this topic, which I believe it is very important, if not the most important topic to be discussed in this month of Ramadan.
And this is going to be about the prayer the Salah, the second pillar in Islam.
To begin, I will take us back to the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to see the way Allah subhanho wa Taala usually dealt with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah when it comes to the revelation and inspiration.
Usually Jabril Ali Salam will reach the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and convey what Allah subhanaw taala wanted him to convey
of the why.
That's the norm. Starting from the time the prophets of Allah Allah and similar received him in the cave of Hira up to the time the prophets of Allah Allah is Emma received the last revelation, which is the Saint of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Yama
at the scene of Allah subhanaw taala would topple Yeoman to geography in Allah. That's the last revelation from the Quran.
There might be some other conversation between real and the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, but when it comes to the Quran, this is the last thing the promises are large and well received from Jamila Ali salam from Allah subhanho wa taala. So that's the norm. As I said, debris will come to the prophets, Allah al salam, and tell him what Allah subhanaw taala wants him to do. Or Allah subhanho wa Taala will inspire the prophets that Allahu alayhi wa sallam with the details of whatever he wants him to do.
But when it comes to the prayer, this norm change,
Allah subhanaw taala sent Gibreel along with another angel to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam in the house of Omaha need to take the province of Allahu Allahu selama all the way from the cab to the heavens.
And this itself shows importance, you know, God did not come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam and tell them the details of the five daily prayers, but he asked him to come with him because Allah is inviting him. So the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, I said, I witnessed this moment where these two angels came to me. And they opened my chest, they removed the heart, and they open the heart and they remove one blood blood in it, black blood in it, which we call the portion of shebang. They throw it away, they wash the heart, and they put it back a lot in the preparation to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala which I will come back also to correct and to link this to one of the mentions of
Sheikh riba a few minutes ago, so in the preparation to meet Allah subhanaw taala, they removed that thing, the prophets Allah Azza is going to the highest place and Allah so they took the prophets Allah similar to the Kaaba from kava, they move to Brighton Marquis, they reach you can say within the blink of an eye, because they use Baroque you know that animals which is so fast and so quick in its steps, so they quickly reach vital market is where the profits are Allahu Allah, who silhouette was welcomed by all the prophets of Allah subhanaw taala
imagine this, this event you know, this is the greatest meeting I call that ever existed on Earth.
Where nobody nobody was among those entities except a prophet of Allah subhanaw taala the minimum qualification you can use, you can have to be part of this meeting is to be a profitable as
either profit or messenger all only last minute possible.
So the prophets Allah Allah Zuma was welcomed by them. And he prayed in front of all of them, leading them in the prayer. How Allah Imam Allah Molina will activate the leader of the first and the last generation.
After this meeting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
move with Gibreel alayhis, salam to, to the heavens.
They're reaching that place you can see within the blink of an eye, they were in the heavens.
When they reached the heavens, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I set up knocked on the door. And they asked him
about his personality. Who are you? He said jiggery Larissa.
They said, Are you alone? He said, No, who is with you?
That's what I call the highest authority, you know, degree lowest Angel, who is the leader of the angels, Allah subhanaw. Taala said Mapai thumb. I mean, even in the heavens, the angels they obey Him. And He is the trusted, one that Allah has wanted trusted, all of them just said trustworthy that Allah entrusted him.
And it's so powerful to strong,
but he shouldn't have in this end user receiving command from the Most High Allah subhanaw taala. So they asked him about the reason why he is. I mean, I mean, they asked him about his present who he is, and also who is with him.
Gibreel Ali salaam told them. I'm not alone
okay, we swam a lot, they open the door for them.
They went inside. So the angels welcome the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, and he saw Adam, in that place. And with Ali salaam asked him to go and talk to Adam, no, and he went.
And then we go after he met Adam in this in this level of the heavens, and then he moved to the second level.
The second level, this is heaven. Number two, that same process, and he made some profits also inside, and he moved to the third one, the fourth one, the fifth one, until he reached the sixth and in the heaven number six, he met Musala Salah
when the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam met him and say salaam to him, you know.
They mentioned that after he left, Musa alayhis salaam cried, they asked him where you cried. He said, Just now, a younger Prophet Prophet passed me.
And I'm told that the amount of the people who will be going to Paradise from his nation, larger than the amount of the people who will be going to Paradise from mine.
He was so sad because of the attitudes of the Jew who refuse to follow him except a few amongst them.
So the prophets of Allah, Allah Himself, I left him to the heaven number seven, where he met Abdullah via the father of the prophets, Ibrahim malice.
And he said, I met him
leaning to the beach in Malmo, which is like the caliber of the angels
that went to him I said salaam, he welcomed me as a son and as as, as a Prophet also.
And then after that, this is heaven. Number seven,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, and then I was taken to a place, you know where I can see the signature Manta ha.
So some scholars in order to reconcile between the Hadith that says it is found in the heaven number six, and some said it is found in the heaven number seven. Both are mentioned in the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, that's why some scholars said the CD to multihop begin from Heaven number six, and then reach the heaven number seven, or even more.
The prophets a lot if someone said, I found it to be a tree that nothing can cross it at all. Whatever comes from up from above when it reached the spirit to monta it has to it has to stop the same goes to whatever is coming from from underneath.
The province of Allahu Allahu Silva said we reach a moment whereby degree that A salaam told me Yeah, Mohammed had them Academy had Allah. He said, Yeah, Muhammad, Muhammad, how had a McCobb he said, This is my position. It means this is the last place I can reach. You have to move forward alone. The province of Allahu Allah
selama said FOMO fear and then Allah subhanaw taala took me up, up to the moment, we reach a place where I can hear the cerebral ukla the sounds of the pens right in the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala have Allah
all of these is because of what Allah wants to meet the prophets, Allah sama to prescribe the most important things to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam to the Bahamas, Elijah.
And I do believe by now, you can send this important speed of light.
You know, look at these attitudes. And the way Allah smart Allah is dealing with the prophets, Allah sama concerning the prayer,
you know that this is something that is important. The Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, I said, I reached that place. I sow the seeds of the mantra, and then Russia hamartia ha You know, something came which is so beautiful covers it. You know, the prophets, Allah, Allah sallallahu alayhi salam, I said, I have never seen something that is more beautiful that says it.
He says Allah smarter revealed to me from that moment at that moment.
When he was in that place, then Allah subhanaw taala talked to him.
So that's talking about Allah subhanaw taala to the prophets of Allah, Allah, He said, I'm a mobile Shabbat, Allah, Allah spoke to the Prophet said Allah Hi, that he was salam in that place. And he prescribed for him 50 prayers to be prayed on a daily basis 50 prayers to be prayed on a daily basis.
The province of Allahu Allah Who said I was so happy.
And this also making them in this way, you know, 50 times, that shows how much we need it.
You will love that source, how much you need we need and that confirmed to the believer that there is no success in the life of anyone living on Earth.
Except through the prayer.
No prayer is equal to no success. So the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam I received 50 praise from Allah subhanaw taala
after Allah is warranted, I spoke to him with whatever he wanted to tell him.
Allah azza wa jal letting go the prophets of Allah Allah to my left the place back to the earth.
You pass Ibrahim Ali set up, Abraham did not make any comment.
A pass Musa Ali set up most asset cup
the prophets of Allah Allah so going back to
What did Allah subhanaw taala give you? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam out of happiness. He said Allah granted me 50 prayers to be prayed on the daily basis.
Musa alayhis salam said 50 prayers said yes. It says yeah, Muhammad.
It says in the Arlidge too many is right. It says I face a lot of difficulties to deal with the bunnies, right? The children of Israel, the Jews, it said I face a lot of difficulties to convince them to do something like this and they couldn't.
And my people were stronger than your people.
Like people are stronger than your people. Because you are the last generation that the structure of the creation is reducing and decreasing. So my OMA was stronger than your nation.
If they couldn't do something like this, for sure your nation cannot maintain it.
cannot do it.
It's a very Jayla, Rebecca says would you say go back to Allah subhanaw taala and ask him to reduce the size of the prayer.
The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam accepted that advice because he listened to it for sure logically have to think wisely and accepted. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accepted that advice from Musa Allah He set out and he went back to Allah subhana wa
and he asked Allah smarter to use Allah subhanaw taala reduce it in some narration Allah reduce five some narration reduce
the prophets province that Allahu alayhi salam I came back to masala
Musa said what happened? He told him that hamdulillah last month I kept out five prayers or 10 prayers. Musa said no you cannot do it.
You should go and ask Allah subhanaw taala to reduce the preface that Allahu Allah instead of going back to Allah and Allah subhanaw taala cut
off the same thing
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam I came back to Musa Ali So Musa told him the same thing he kept on going between Musa and Allah subhanaw taala until the time they became only five priests
and Musa is still insisting that Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I should go back to Allah subhanaw taala and ask him for leniency
to reduce that amount. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said, he says that that kind of a bit too, Boehner says I have been going from you which Allah subhanho wa Taala it says, I'm shy of going back in sha Allah, these fake prayers, my alma can do it.
And then after that, you know, Musa still didn't believe.
And subhanAllah this is what I said both of them are right, you know,
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam I said,
they can do it. When the Buddha said they cannot, the both of them are right. Because you have Subhanallah in our villa many many Muslims who call themselves Muslims, but they're not praying to Allah azza wa jal you have some who want to pray and accept in Joomla
on humor you know, you have some people who are not praying accept and they do great
and we are talking about all of these characters may Allah subhanaw taala you know kinda you have some people who are not praying accepting Ramadan may become very good after Ramadan they will neglect the massage it you know,
and they don't pray at home as well.
But at the same time, you have those excellent righteous people who submitted to Allah subhanaw taala, who are not just restricting themselves to the five daily prayers, but they pray additional prayers which you call robotic, we call which we call the ricotta alpha. We call all of those prayers that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I used to do the night prayers, the HA you know? No, no.
That's the reason why I say if you look at both of them, right, in one,
what he called Dementia.
So after this, Allah subhanaw taala talk to them. It says here, come sue for Hola.
Hola, sama. subhanaw taala says these are five prayers to be prayed on a daily basis. We're hoping they'll come soon. And I will maintain the old number in terms of reward. Allahu Akbar, you can see that the blessing of Allah has mounted upon this OMA, you pray five times in a day but Allah subhanaw taala will give you the reward of praying 50 times in a day, not 50 words know the reward of praying 50 prayers in the day.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam a left back to the earth. When he reached the Earth.
She became team the next day to teach him about the prayer times and also how to pray. That's why degree was utilized. Allah holy Surma said
unmanageably Marathi GP led me in the prayer twice.
And that's authentic hadith. So he taught the prophets of Allahu Allahu selama how to pray, and today's why to eyes, because he needs to know the first part of the time. And the last part of the type.
You know, the first the time when do begins, and the time it ends. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if you want to see that practically he has to pray two prayers, one of them to be prayed.
to breathe again.
So Jabril gave the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the description of how to pray, and also the prayer time.
So this is the prayer My dear brothers and sisters, this is how it begins. This is how it began. Allah subhanaw taala took the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam all the way to the heavens to receive this prayer.
That's the reason why I said it is the most important
act of worship that a Muslim is dealing with.
And it is so special in the life of the Muslim in a way the prophets of Allahu Allahu selama set the example of this five daily prayers. It just like the river you have in front of your house.
You have a pool, swimming pool, in front of your house, where every cent
Though they, you come out of your house and swim in it and wash yourself five times in a day, the prophets of Allah Allah who stood up and said, Do you think this person will have a single dot, you know, on his body.
For sure know, if a person is going to take shower five times in a day, there will be no remaining of dirt, the skin will be so clean. That's how these prayers are purifying the one who observed them properly.
And this is very important in your life. You will Allah, this is very important in our life. And everyone should understand this unless if you don't understand who you are as human being somebody who is very vulnerable, you know, to the commission of the sale, every single moment we do since we disobey Allah subhanaw taala accidentally or intentionally, or whatever, you know, this is who we are. So Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala for the believers He granted as these moments of explanations, things which we do in our life. At the end of the day, they will remove the sins so that the evening light Allah will be able to go back to Allah subhanaw taala with no sin in our account.
You can hear this night that we're assisters prayed does this for you. The Prime Minister Allahu Allah you set up I set a Salawat to come so while geometry, Geometry and Algebra can follow to Ramadan Ilana Maga Cafaro to Lima Bay, you know who energy kinetic Hubei
the five daily prayers between every prayer and the one next to it is Farah kuffaar means a total mental exhibition means something to remove the sins. So whatever you commit it between these two prayers, Allah as much I will clean it.
Even if you don't see a step for Allah, automatically the prayer will take them out.
That's the reason why I said we need it. Because without this type of attitude and system being established in our life, we will definitely get into trouble because we are going to carry all of these tragedies back to Allah subhanaw taala and face the consequences
and the province of Allahu Allah Himself has given us the easiest way to pass the test in this life. After that, not only removing your sins, but it is acting as a deterrent. That keeps you away from going against Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah says in the salata, 10 ha and in Russia, it will monka one of the crew like a kebab, Allahu Allah.
It says the prayer is acting as a deterrent against vices and evil attitude, your manners and bad things in sins. And that's why if you look into the the rate of the people who are engaging in committing crimes and since these peoples are away from the massage it
it will turn find people who are praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, except a few
been engaged in those crimes, except a few. Why do I say except a few because I do believe if a person is praying in the weight loss one or two, Allah commanded, you know, sincerely for the sake of Allah, according to the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, for sure the prayer is going to act as a deterrent, you know, standing before him prevented him from engaging in anything that is that is inappropriate.
Deborah Sisters, we have a lot to be said concerning this.
But I will close this importance and then I moved to another terms of importance. I will close it with that statement of Abdullah who members of the line Massoud said, so they have lived Massoud. He said man sorrow and yellow Kola rather than Muslim and fairly happy that
he said whoever wants to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala tomorrow as a Muslim
you know if you want to have a peaceful meeting with Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment, which you know that every single one of us is going to have this meeting with Allah he will Allah that's the greatest meeting.
Imagine my dear brothers sisters were the last part is going to bring each and every one of us for what for accountability.
So that will be question about whatever you did in this life. Allah says Will the archetype for thermal Majidi medium which VPN? I mean Murphy
way Apolonia way letter Amani had Anki tabula rasa tabula rasa orgy do ma
Do how there are millennials anymore a book
on the Day of Judgment, the big book of record, you know, will be presented before a slave of Allah subhanaw taala. And you will see the criminals being scared and panicked. You know, concerning that which is found in the book, which they forgot the vast majority of it, but the book did not forget anything. That's why when they see some tiny, tiny things, which they know they did it,
and they see it being 100% and precisely documented by the angels, they will be saying, Mary have al Kitab legado savedata Hola, que viva la so what's wrong with this book, you know?
Even these tiny, tiny things, recorded, you know,
what's wrong with this book, what is going on, you know, even these things, you know,
that he kind of will Alameen is Allah subhanaw taala when Allah has wanted to take record on something, this is the most precise, you know, record you can find in your life, you know, you can hear about so accurate, so accurate, in the way nothing is missed, you know, from the eyes of Allah subhanho wa taala.
So imagine, you know, Allah subhanaw taala will bring you on the Day of Judgment, for accountability to ask you about all of these tiny, tiny details. Why did you do this? Why did you do that? Why didn't you do this? And that will start with you, why wouldn't you go and do this and that you know,
imagine Allah is what is questioning you about every single thing you did in your life, and the prophets of Allah Allah who said, as I said, when you look at your right side, you see nothing but your action and your deed, you look at your left side, you see nothing but your deed, you look at in front of you, you know, you see nothing but help facing you. And Allah is questioning you and there will be no going back.
Either you move forward, you know, you know there is no going back at all. You have to move forward or you pass the questions of Allah subhanaw taala then angels will take you to another place not that place.
So think about this, my dear brothers sisters.
So that you can understand the reason why the line was rude is say, when Sarah who and yell Kola Rodan, Muslim and Phil you have it on, like satellite, whoever wants the meeting with Allah subhanaw taala to be so perfect and excellent. And also Allah to meet him as a Muslim. Let him take care of these five prayers.
What does taking care of the five prayers means
to pray them in the way Allah subhanaw taala prescribed.
And this is the most important part of my lecture today.
To pray them, according to the prescription, the way the prophets of Allah, Allah and selama asked you to do what you took from Allah subhanaw taala to pray them sincerely for the sake of Allah, and to pray them on time and to pray with Osho these are the five elements which you use when you interpret the saying of Allah subhanho wa Taala What are key masala, Allah subhanaw taala commanded you to establish the prayer.
You have to reflect upon far four things. They must be inside your prayer for that prayer to be accepted.
Because my dear brothers sisters, if you didn't pray like this, your prayer will be useless. Somebody came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he said
I mean he went to the masjid. He prayed first and then he went to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and said As salam o Allah Kassala
Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, I looked at him and said, while equals salah,
Farah for Sully for inoculum to son.
The Prophet said, Allahu Allah Who similar replied this aloud to him. And he commanded him to go back and pray because he did not pray.
So the companions were like, What is going on here?
Because they can see the man praying.
And they couldn't understand what's wrong with this prayer. He prayed.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, I told him, go back and pray because you did not pray.
He went back and prayed. And he came back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he said salaam to him. The Prophet salallahu alayhi salam took him back. And he told him energy read for Saliba in Nicola to suddenly go back and pray because you do not pray.
The man went back and prayed
Back to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam twice or thrice he was doing that. And the prophets, Allah Asuma has been telling him go back in prayer.
When he came back at a third or the second time, he said yes who Allah will let the bath or kibble happy la Theano via the validly
is that the companions of the prophets Allah has a very smart
he said he also Allah, I swear by the one who sent you with the truth.
I cannot pray better than this. Fall in the household I teach me.
That was the job of the prophets. Allah has so much to teach. When he said the hours will lie teach me the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said yes, it he said either come the inner celerity fatawa camera America hola que se when you stand up and you have an intention to pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala The first thing to be done is to make will do just like the way Allah smart Allah commanded you to do.
I mean, so prefix unification, you're looking for success, right? The only way to success is through the test kitchen lifts
purification of the soul. Allah subhanaw taala sees Avila Hammonds A ka wakad Harlem and DISA
the one who purifies his soul, his nerves succeed,
and the one who disrespect and I mean, destroy, you know, and humiliate him. So, through the sins fails in life
and loss at the same time.
If you want to see the one who will be in trouble, look at this person, who Allah's Morotai removed the success from his life in this dunya he will not get this blessing of Allah subhanaw taala and in the hereafter also he will be the real loser.
So, prayer gave you this purification of the soul after the two heat of Allah's March and the Akita Wallah himedia Verse, it says there is nothing that acts, you know, in this sense that is greater than the prayer.
Starting from the time you're making the woowoo you're purifying yourself physically, and those are the car and Aditya and whatever you doing right after you finish the prayer, they are purifying your soul from inside.
And the way also the predecessors used to behave when they're making although Subhan Allah was so unique, Zayn Labadi
Alexander, the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they mentioned that he will be making jokes with people and he will be doing things you know, but when the prayer times comes when they see making although it will see him, masha Allah, very calm, you know, not about worried but so happy but serious at the same time.
Somebody asked him why whenever you start making wudu then up so seriously?
He said yes. Because you guys don't know. Who am I going to meet? That's why you're asking me this question. It says that you know that I'm going to be meeting Allah subhanaw taala in this prayer.
That's the prayer of somebody who observed the last element I'm going to be mentioning.
So the province of Allahu Allah you serve a tool that person, Khaled Minerva, his name, operating in the masjid is in fact our karma. Our Allah may Kudo
J just like the way Allah smart Allah commanded you to do, make will do in the way Allah smart Allah commanded it.
How did Allah subhanaw taala ask you to make a book called check in in Surah to Alma either and also in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam because both are supposed to be combined together to understand the way to perform the will do. If you go with the Quran, you might not know how to do the details. But the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam and the Hadith of
the previous slave of
the Allahu he explained to us how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I used to perform model of the life and said many companions of the Prophet sallahu wa salam, they did an excellent job to tell you what exactly the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam I used to do you know, and they did not leave a single you know, you know, you know, dot which a Muslim need to know about the widow without explanation.
So this is an invitation because if I stay here
To talk about the way the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam used to perform his will do the whole time given to this lecture will be deficient. So I will invite you to go and contact the scholars and ask them to teach you exactly how the prophets Allah Allah sama used to take, although it takes a few minutes, can you add and then you will be having a new window because when you are making it, you will know from your heart that this is what was said to be practiced by the Prophet sallallahu Sallam The taste is going to be different. The taste is going to be different because now whenever you perform Do you have the vision you know, you have the feeling that this is the correct way to
perform or do according to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu.
So he told him Mikado in the way Allah subhanho wa Taala asked you to do
and then the prophets Allah sama taught him how to pray starting from the technical to the
you know all the way to the hourly stiff and all the way to the setup. He prescribed for him one raka you know under the showered and then he says film of I'll meet the daddy Caffee Salah ticket
and then you copy the same thing and applied in the rest of the prayer.
You know what the Prophet sallallahu Sallam I told him,
he said for a nickel emit Allah Ha he is referring to the prayer he was doing, the man was doing in the masjid in the presence of Rasul Allah,
mid Tala, Vedas, Milla, you will be dying upon something which is not Islam. Now you understand the reason why I'm delighted, Massoud said, if you want to meet Allah subhanaw taala peacefully, and as a Muslim, you must preserve these prayers.
How to preserve it, I said you have to observe four things in your prayer. Number one is sincerity. To make it sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is the prayer that saves. Prayer without sincerity is useless. Whatever you do, if you're not sincere for the sake of Allah, I mean, not doing it sincerely for the sake of Allah will lie in staying away from it is better for you.
Because doing it is shaped either minor or major?
You better purify yourself? Yes, I mean, yourself.
And the question is, why do I need to pray for the sake of somebody?
Why do I need to think of somebody? Why do you need to think about somebody? Why did they do in your prayer?
How does he benefit you in your prayer. And also always remember, that this person cannot add or reduce. And also don't forget, human beings cannot be convinced. If you are to try to convince human beings to make them happy and satisfied with what you're doing. That might be sometimes impossible. And even if you do if there is a way to convince them, since this is supposed to be done for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala Why do I need to engage somebody in it?
Why do I need to engage somebody in it? And as such, my dear brother, sisters, it is so illogical walleye for somebody to come and shake. Shaytan will never leave us but it is so illogical for somebody to pray for the sake of somebody. Why do you need to do that? This person is not benefiting in this life. This person will never benefit you in the hereafter. Why do you show him your righteous deed?
That's why the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam wa said, on the Day of Judgment, Allah Azza wa Jalla will bring those people who are showing off showing their deeds to others and ask them to go and take their reward from those people who they use to show that these two and you know, there is no way for them to be rewarded by those ones. That's when they are definitely into trouble. So Allah salovaara here, so that's the first thing to be done which is sincerity. To pray for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the prophets of Allah Allah who said him I said in number Iman bindi yet
he said in number llamada, vignette,
when nama liquid Lemare manna from incarnate hedgerow to il Allah He was solely for hirato in Allah He was
womankind, a teacher to either Dooney and usuba or Marathi and Kira for Hegira to who Ilana hydralie
Currently this hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah accept your actions if the intention is perfect, Allah accept your actions if you're doing it, doing it for his sake.
And if you don't have this kind of intention, your actions is useless
If you do it for the sake of dunya, Allah says, you go to the dunya and ticularly word
salah, Salah Mala Hiya. So the first thing my dear brothers sisters is sincerity.
And the second thing you should have is following the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam annual prayer.
This is as important as the first one also. Or the next thing that has importance is this.
To pray according to the Sunnah, because this is a system that belongs to Allah subhanaw taala. You cannot please Allah Azza wa Jalla in your own way, you have to make it in the way of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.
You cannot please Allah subhanaw taala in your own way
you can't please Allah subhanaw taala in your own way, you must make it in the way Allah smart Allah commanded.
And how do I know this? There is only one way which is to go and check with the prophets of Allah, Allah sermon how to do it. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I talked to the OMA before death, how to pray.
molecule, Hadith, he and his friend visited the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam on it. And they stayed with the Prophet sallallahu ala cinema for a couple of days. They learn from him the religion, they're coming from one of the villages. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, I realize that now most likely they want to go back to their family. So the prophets of Allah Allah has ever said, it looks like you want to go back to your families.
And then the prophets of Allah Haile Silva said, If this is the case, then you can go back. And when you go back to people, please teach them what you have learned from me.
And also, when the prayer time arrives, one of you should stand up and make the event for you. And then the one who has more Quran should lead the prayer was a newcomer writing in yourself and pray as you have seen me pray.
So that's the command from the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, that prayer can only be accepted by Allah. If you make it in the way the Sunnah lies that Allah honey Salam prays otherwise, how can you understand that somebody is bringing his own version of the prayer and he thinks that Allah is what is going to recognize this? No way. Because if Allah subhanaw taala want us to pick it up in our own way, there will be no point of sending Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam prayed one day with them and he was on the member
he was praying on the member
whenever he decided to make records to do with the practice that Allah Allah who said that yeah to Gerald Takara he will go back a bit so that he can have space to make salute
to the brothers Allah sumo Goodell
you know, under make reconstitute and then go back to the member I did.
after you finish, the province of Allahu Allah you syllabus it in nama fall to delicately to Allah masala it is that I was doing that so that you guys will understand and learn how to pray, you know, is to do this on top so that everyone can see.
So that's why they are brothers sisters. I said this is very important, as important as the first element. You have to do it with a class and you have to live according to the sun. And this is the meaning of the Seine of Allah subhanho wa Taala for mankind al Julius rugby for Yama, Hamelin Salia you know, our blood Massoud said if you want to meet Allah subhanaw taala peacefully and you have a great meeting with Allah then you should engage in practice in the righteous deed.
What is Allah Masada? He said Makana calissa Luigi Allah, wa Canis Allah.
Allah had in Ibiza La Silla. He said a la mala salah, and that Allah is Mata mentioned here, which is the key to success when it comes to meeting with Allah subhanho wa taala. He says, this is any deed that is based on sincerity to hate, and also following the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam are precisely
if you have this sincerity, but he didn't do it according to the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, that action is useless.
And if you have the Sunnah of the Prophet cells you protect you practice it according to the Sunnah, but you're not doing it for the sake of Allah, that action is useless also.
So both elements must be preserved for the prayer to be accepted.
Number three, to pray on time.
And the prayer time are given to us in detail how to pray, and as such the Muslim should
Be very careful, because praying not on time intentionally can put a person into one of the most dangerous situations. That's why I was suggest that you should listen to this carefully. There are some scholars whose opinion is the most excellent opinion.
Their opinion is the most excellent opinion, which can be supported by the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. They believe that if, if a person refuses to pray on time, and he knows that he has to pray on time, but he refused to pray on time,
but later on, he made Toba. He wants to pray again, that Toba is accepted. But there is no way for him to make up that prayer up but then
that prayer is gone. Because Allah subhanaw taala said in the Select a candidate Island mini Nikita Harbin Makuta it has a fixed term that allows me to prescribe for every prayer.
The only concession given to the OMA is concerning somebody who is in a state of sleep, he overslept or forgot the prayer. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he can pray, you know, the moment he wakes up, or he remember that.
And the prophets that Allahu Allah himself I said, Man, I mean I'm Allah lays out a runner from Warren, whoever does an act, know that he claims to be an act of worship. But unfortunately, that is no command from the province that Allahu Allah who sent him Oh from Allah for him to do that, that action will be rejected.
So it's very serious matter, my dear brothers sisters, imagine something that caused the bridge to come all the way to tell the prophets Allah sama twice, he's coming to teach the prophets, Allah cinemawall The prayer, and how to pray and the prayer time, you know, you should know that definitely, this is something of seriousness with Allah subhanaw taala. And as such, these columns said, if a person refuses to pray on time, and he knows that he has to print a time later on, he cannot pick it up, even if he's going to print 1 million times.
So praying on time is essential. You cannot be counted as somebody who established the prayer unless if you pray on the time prescribed for it, by Allah subhanho wa taala.
And the last one is to pray with consciousness and
that's very important. Otherwise the prayer will have no taste. And the Prophet said, Allahu Allah, you serve, as I said, perhaps you might find somebody who prayed to Allah subhanho wa taala. But unfortunately, he does not have anything from Allah subhanaw taala in the tab, except the weariness, and the tiredness, you know, he just exhausted himself but there will be no reward for him from Allah subhanaw taala because that prayer has been snatched, by what? By the shaytaan and the devil, internally and externally, internally he is not conscious at all. He's in another planet, you know.
Externally he moves so much during so many activities in the prayer
and both are against the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu offerzen folks Rasul Allah is Allah Allahu Allah Who says I said during that Kurata if Salah
If you want to know who understands the prayer correctly, you should read the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
He said Allah smart Allah puts my comfort and satisfaction and the coolness of my eye in the prayer, meaning the prophets of Allah, Allah himself might get his relief when he prays,
who reaches this moment among us?
That's the translation and interpretation you have. When you are told about the prayer of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, he stayed at night and pray to Allah subhanaw taala for full five, you know, four to five hours
45 hours, because they told us sometimes in one workout, he recited he recited surah baqarah he recited Alibre he recited made he recited a nice up for long sewers. You know, but Christ more than enough. If you read it in the way Khalil Hasani is reading. I'll mean Shall we take around one hour plus, you know, if you go a bit lower than than that, you're going to take like two hours you know, or even more than that. And they say that the province that Allahu Allahu semi used to recite calmly and very slowly and can
On a moodlemoot history, prolong the mud is to make them long.
Imagine the prophets Allah sama recited those four sewers you know, you know what sorts of Bukhara means 286 verses
you might say but some verses or maybes, small verses no it's not like that. They surah is the largest surah in the book of Allah subhanaw taala. That's why even some scholars call it that some scholars they call it quality Sharia difficulty of Sharia, because it almost has everything you need in this life.
It has around 49 pages.
After that, he decided Surah to earn Imran 200 verses and he recited ma either 120 verses and he recited Surah two Anessa 175 verses
we are talking about the first raka
Salah you can imagine how much he enjoys you know when he prays he will love you will not understand this mighty princesses unless if you agree to remain calm to focus in your prayer.
In no I'm speaking the truth My dear brothers sisters, some of you when they start praying at night, you know your intention is to recite just one Jesu but you end up reciting the whole sort of baccarat in the first rocker.
Sometimes you feel like you don't want to stop you know.
Sold. Excellent. Allah says in the Nash Atleti here I should do what I'm what Aqua Makeda
the prophets Allah sama really rocks when he prays.
And the same goes to the son of Assad. They also like that, if you check out their history, it's kind of like so amazing when it comes to some of these, you know, if not, because it is narrated for us, you know, to us with an authentic chain of narrations. I'm telling you will not believe in it. You
imagine a person they cut off his leg when he prays and he doesn't feel it.
He doesn't feel it.
In our salah, there's a prayer. Imagine a person you know, they, I mean some part of the masjid fell down.
And the person you know
did not even feel that there is something going on in the masjid.
The people in the market run away.
And this person is still praying in the masjid.
And when they asked him
how come he didn't run away?
He said, Because I was praying.
He said I did not run away because I was great.
Didn't you hear what happened? He said what happened?
They were the one who told him that some part of the message was down. It doesn't feel it.
That's the prayer. It talks his life completely. He's like in another dimension. It doesn't know what is going on. And they narrated to us about one of the service side. You know, he told his kids please, if you see me reading books, I don't want anyone to speak
you have to go somewhere else and and play. It's up to you. But please don't come to the place wherever
you can play when I pray no problem. Somebody visited him
and found the kids is shouting, yelling you know this normal life and he's praying that the man said, Aren't you disturbed by this? He says no to be honest with you want to pray? The moment I say Allahu Akbar. I hate to remember what it's good. So much focus in in history.
We have a lot to share. You know, one of them when he died. A younger boy in the house, you know,
he told his mother is a mum. That tree that is on top of the house of our neighbors is cut off somebody's remote.
So she laughed at him. She said no, that wasn't a tree. I was so I'm so I'm so in the last part of the night he used to come and go on top of his house, you know and pray. He knows the justification of that. But he was so established in his prayer and the way the boys thought that that was a stick, you know, because he's not moving at all.
If you're not impressed, listen to this narration about this Companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He was praying one of the praise
one of the enemies of Allah subhanho wa Taala shot him with with an arrow
When they shot him with the arrow, he removed there and throw it away.
You understand that that's insane, because he removed it and fill it
and continue to spread
the shot again,
when he was afraid of being killed by the enemies, he quickly finished the prayer and woke up his brother who was supposed to be guardian also with him. But they made an arrangement. They said, instead of both of us just being awake, why can't I be awake for a while, and then you sleep, and then I will be awake, and then I will be? Absolutely you will be awake for a while, and then I sleep.
So during during his tenure, he was praying and then one of the enemies saw him and ensure him without, he removed it and
and continue with the prayer. When he woke up the front, the friend found him bleeding. He said, What's wrong with you? Why didn't you wake me up? He said, no reason why every waking up, I was afraid of me being killed, and then they will kill you also, and then go and attack the Muslims. I was afraid of you being killed. He said, Why didn't you stop? He said because I was praying.
He was so enjoyed in so much enjoying his certain camp.
He couldn't even stop to pray.
I'm not saying we have to be exactly like that. But at least we can close it to them.
As the statement says Fattah Chabot, inland to Colombia.
So this issue is necessary. But Gabriel sisters, what is the issue in the prayers? But it's for sure. That's for sure means to cry. The social means to shed tears that crucial means to do this and that, you know, no, it has a definition. Let's call it said a Who? Who? Or who will call be what's called Yara and for sure, who the hell do they call me? What's it called?
apart to be very attentive, and Luca him in his writings, you know, when he was commenting on the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam? Sure. I mean, was he hadn't as a career, even though Kareem says these people when they pray to Allah subhanaw taala, they submitted their heart completely to Allah subhanaw taala, they will be in another dimension, they will divorce the dunya completely.
It's like they don't know what is going on.
These are the best categories of prayers. And they pray when they say Allahu Akbar, all of the attention, you know, will be given to the to the prayer, there will be focus in the prayer, they will not be thinking of anything except their prayers, in which sometimes they don't even know what is going on, around them.
So although called to be very attentive in the prayer, this is what we call crucial
for psychology, and also to be very calm, moving too much in your prayer, to be standing in one position calmly and not moving in the prayer except where necessary.
So this is how they define the for sure, Hello, can we possibly do it?
And my dear brothers, sisters, these are the four elements should be preserved in order to attain the success mentioned by the liveness old when he says Whoever wants the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, his meeting with Allah on the day of judgment to be profitable, excellent. Let him preserve that take care of these prayers.
He says in the hula means sanel Buddha. And then he said in that hadith, he said hi to another bill, you should take care of them the moment that Advan is being mentioned.
Since he is talking to the brothers who are obliged to go to the massage, it is only here that you move to the masjid
and pray on time
Hala Lambert's own set. It says I witnessed the time I can see among the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam menu had been ever delayed. A person will not be able to come to the masjid by himself. You know, other people will be dragging him. I'm sorry, not dragging but holding him you know He will put His hand on to people. They will be carried
his his toes will be making lines on the ground.
Had telecom of soft they don't want to miss the prayer with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam
they don't want to miss the bread with the prophets, a lot of Salah but unfortunately nowadays, you find a person who is prefer it his
job more than the prayer
very quick and on time when it comes to the job, but not on time when it comes to pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala
he will be going out of his house before the prayers. If he is good, he might pray when he reached the place where he works. It is that person, he will not pray until the time he comes back home and then he combines all the prayers and put them all together at once.
So Dr. Brennan says let's take this matter seriously. Prayer is your salvation. Without the prayer, you will definitely into trouble. I know I have exceeded my time. So I will be inshallah wrap it up. And I will mention this hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam
to confirm the statement I have just said a few seconds ago, when I said is your real salvation of the Day of Judgment. The province of Allahu alayhi salam I said, the first thing that Allah subhanaw taala will look at amongst your deed is the prayer.
If the prayer is fulfill and completed, you know you don't have deficiency that is it for Avila Hello Abdullah Anja.
Definitely you succeed. The prayer is perfect, definitely succeed.
That's the statement of the prophets Allah, Allah. If you fix a prayer you don't have deficiency in it, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said you succeed
but if the prayer is not perfect, you have deficiency in it.
Then Allah subhanaw taala will ask the angels to check and see whether you have some Sunnah prayers in your account to complete the deficiency
if you have the Sunnah prayers to complete the deficiency then they will use the Sunnah prayers to complete the deficiency.
And here comes the importance of what the Sunnah prayers. Don't you ever deceive yourself and think that you can take the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam that that said to that person, you know of law in Sudan,
you think that you can do that you go and stay away from the Sunnah prayers and just restrict yourself to the YG But Deborah says that this is a very dangerous line a person could be
you'll be living at the edge to very dangerous line. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam out when that bed will ask him, Yara so lion comes to salawat and Phillimore later, hallelujah. Is there anything? Why do people pull me apart from the five day reprise?
He said no inlanta power.
He asked him a couple of things, you know after this, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I was listening to the man. When the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, I told him, the only word you have is the five daily prayers. Totally. Why did you know? Is the five deliveries?
So the Prophet sallallahu somoni Tell him this, the man says well, Lady Bertha can be happy as you do Allah had Walla Walla hospital. He said, I swear by the one who sent you the truth. I will not add, that I will not reduce
the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam I said he definitely succeeded in history.
But the question is how to be truthful. That's why the prophets Allah sama has given us a way out. Because for sure you're going to have deficiencies in your prayers. For sure, no doubt you must have deficiency in your prayers. I cannot claim that you pray is precisely and perfectly as the prophets Allah. So let's pray that you never have deficiency. You never have mistaken a prayer. That's impossible.
And the problem is that you need something of the same nature to complete the deficiency to fix that deficiency you have. So from the prayer, Allah will use praise, lower than these praise. So you have the word prayers that you have deficiency in them, Allah will take from the celebrities. But if you don't have this inner praise,
that's I said, my brothers and sisters, that's the reason why we should take them seriously.
You have the robotic, the into our prayers you pray, and Subhanallah they were so excellent to earn you're not just a reward, but an additional reward, which is to be given a house in Jannah.
Every day, if you can pray to our guard, everyday, Allah's monitor will grant you a housing agenda every time you pray them. Hala, what are these sorbara Cut? The follow catch up before the hook took out after loop to look at AP demography to look at apt Asia and the tour card before Fajr where the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam I said these to recap before Fajr they are
greater than the dunya on whatsoever is found in it
and you have the with the night prayer, which is the best Sunnah prayer city in the province of Allahu alayhi salam I was told by Gibreel Gibreel said
to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala Muhammad, Ah Ma che to find Nicoma YouTube, watch the mainsheet to find a couple of Article
Wiremold Murshidabad Mecca moves and it says, Yasser Allah, it says, live as long as you wish. But you will know you should know that you will die one day
and do whatever you want. And the day will come Allah swatter will reward you accordingly. And love whomsoever you want, and they will come you will leave this person.
And then he says, Well, I'm in the shadow of a minicam, who believe was zoo is the number one in the US. It should know that the sheriff, the honor and nobility that a person get from Allah subhanaw taala lies in the ninth place. That's why these night praise is so perfect in the way Allah has managed to make them additional tasks on the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, for him to get the best position on the Day of Judgment.
Who does among us a few.
But it is really an opportunity granted to each and every one of us which are missing. And my Deborah sisters, this is opportunity Allah in this month of Ramadan to train ourselves so that we can continue with this excellent attitude.
is a source of comfort you know, you'll be with Allah subhanaw taala at night you will be protected by Allah sponsored in the daytime. Do you ever remember this? You will be with Allah azza wa jal that night, Allah smart Allah will grant you the tranquility and the comfort you need to survive in the daytime.
It has so many things to lose, I mean to be said about it, you know, this nightmare is that the time will not permit. You have the salah to Doha, you have so many other prayers prescribed by the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and as such like the verses at least, you know, the robotic, take the robot in if you don't want to go for something else take the water and the winter.
But don't stay away from the Sunnah prayers because you might put yourself in a very dangerous situation.
So if there is some now prays to complete the deficiency loss Mahoto completed for you and then you will be taken to paradise. But if unfortunately, there is nothing to complete the deficiency you have, in this case, Allah subhanho wa Taala will ask the angels to check every single thing in your book. And you know, what does that mean?
You know what that mean? You know Subhanallah because if I am to look into your life, you know, I'm going to find a lot of deficiencies. If you're going to look at my life into my life, you're gonna find millions of deficiencies and bad things, you know, this is who we are. And this is human capacity in the some of them when they are detained by the by the authority those intelligence you know, when they describe the tell them something in their life, they even forgot they did you know,
but it's precisely documented. That's human capacity.
What do you think if Allah subhanaw taala is going to check you your teacher
so that's the reason why I call it the real success you have in the salvation you know, in this life and the hereafter is depressed. Because if it is complete, Allah Monica will just take you to paradise without checking the rest of your actions.
As the reason why the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, I set my location however,
if Allah subhanaw taala is to observe the hisab on you, you will definitely be in trouble. I shouted Allah one has said Ya rasool Allah, didn't Allah subhanaw taala say for Sophia has to be 70 Zero. Allah azza wa jal will observe the reckoning, you know, an easy reckoning on the believers. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yes, Allah subhanaw taala said that.
But that is allowed a lot of mean this is the treatment the way Allah is what I will deal with the person who prays what happens in that heart, Allah Sparta will bring your believer and he will put him in a place where nobody can see him and then allows me to converse with him. Tell him about his team, especially the bad ones, and then Allah Sparta will tell him I was the one who can see all of these deeds nobody know them except me. And today also I will conceal them go to paradise.
Imagine on a day Allah smarter call it Yama tubular survive the day when the secret is exposed to you.
That's the reason why the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam in the last 10 days of
Ramadan, the Prime Minister Allahu Allah, your semi uses to send somebody to wake up the sisters at home, telling them wake up, the time to sleep is over. Aruba casita for dunya. I heard it in Yama, gamma, perhaps you might find a person who is concealed in this life, Allah subhanaw taala granted him this kind of concealment, his offense are all concealed. But in the Day of Judgment, everything is going to be revealed and exposed. So you want this to take place, neglect, suppress. Then on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will expose all of your best what Allah has wanted to conceal your offense, preserve the prayers.
So after this, Allah's want to forgive him, and that's the reason why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, yo mo pm et al meaning the Cadbury Marbella Salah to Zoey but
they have judgment for the believers, the length of the Day of Judgment is just like the length between the hope and also
the appearances I have a lot to share with you concerning the prayer but time will not permit have exceeded my time and if I keep talking information will keep coming from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu ala sama which is so beautiful. It's an ordinary beautiful
clothes with this hadith of I wouldn't even know Saudi. When the man came to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and said to him, ya rasool Allah, give me advice, advise me Tell me something which I will remember, you know, but be very brief. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, either so later for suddenly Salah Demo Day, whatever you pray, pray as if this is the last and the final prayer you're going to do in this life, as if an angel told you that this is your last prayer.
This is how we supposed to pray My dear brothers sisters and you know if you have this feeling, you know your prayers going to be perfect and excellent. You will make sure you're doing it sincerely for the sake of Allah, you will make sure that you're doing it on on time, and you will make sure you're doing it with the best of culture and you will make sure that you're doing it according to the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam.
And then he says, well, Ativan che and tartar the Romito. But he says, Don't you ever engage in doing something which you will need to go and tell others? I'm sorry.
That's been stay away from doing mistakes intentionally and try your best to avoid doing wrong to others? Because it's a form of humiliation. At the end of the day, you have to go and say sorry, so avoid the thing at the very beginning.
And then he says, Watch Mel, yes, sir. Mean Murphy idleness and gather all forms, all forms of despair from that which other people have their brother or sisters, Let's cooperate. You know, and teach yourself, remind yourself of this prayer. And make sure that you teach your children from the early days to love the prayer and to pray, the best success you know, element that can lead to success that you are having in this life after that pain and to hate is a prayer
and neglected this prayer will lead you to be negligence throughout your life. Remember the law and who said, Monday ya have a holy mess you are out there. Whoever neglects the prayer, you will never find him being serious in that which will benefit him in the hereafter as well as this life.
So with that, my dear brothers sisters, ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept you and to reward your patients and very sorry for taking longer than the time being prescribed for me their loss monitor Grunty good in the hope ecology median caffeine Subhanak Allahumma are we handing a shadow inland as typical car to be late? A seller Wiley who want to Llahi Omar cattle
Kira and check for the very insightful talk I feel that we just are just touching the surface.
More to which unfortunately, we don't have enough time for today, but perhaps in future class inshallah. But we can continue some of the conversation in about 10 to 15 minutes Shala.
So JazakAllah khairan again for accepting our invitation to speak on this conference today. And just before we continue to the next section, a quick reminder for everyone who's listening to just send in your questions via the pigeonhole link. Any questions that you have regarding solar that you've always had in your mind, this is the perfect opportunity to ask Chef today so please jump on the pigeonhole link and do submit your question inshallah. And so just to let you know, we've collected quite a lot of feedback from the participants and
let's say the number one reason that we see that the Ummah today is facing is that we just don't feel the salah like the me
meaning behind the Salah we just missing it. And therefore, when we look into the stories of the seller for Salah for Salah for example, when you mentioned Zainul RBD and he was jovial in his dealings when he dealt with the people wet but when he took his will do the seriousness came to him you know, so that's the mindset and attitude that shows that our staff they looked at the Salah as something very great very important very pivotal in their lives you know. So I think a lot of it has to do with what we think today as the reasons why we are lacking in this and
perhaps when the other one calls for Salah a lot of us perhaps have the mindset or I'll do it later when I have a bit more spare time you know, with my task rather than looking at as an opportunity to become successful successful with the Salah. So just to continue on your your elaboration before just to ask how can we as an ummah, collectively change our mentality when we think about salah and perhaps we can make it a priority? And how do we train ourselves to fall in love with the Salah and to reach the state where it becomes the coolness of eyes such as Rasul Allah when he said to Bilal arena behavioral, you know, so how do you think we, we as an ummah, should approach it step by step
in this regard?
the way I see it, is that there is one step to be stamped on for the OMA to reach this perfect, you know, and prestigious
position, which was
what you call acquired by the predecessors, which is to favor you know, if you look into their life, you will see that our era, you know, is better than the dunya they favor the ultra more than the dunya.
Because my dear brothers, sisters, I'm telling you, without having this element, you know, been well established in our heart,
it will be very difficult for us to have the same feeling they used to have before
for them, praise everything, and Acuras everything.
Some of them are rich, some of them are very poor. But there is no difference between the rich and the poor. Both of them submitted to Allah subhanaw taala when it comes to the dedication, they dedicated that time and they understand the real purpose, you know,
of this life, they dedicated that time to Allah smarter force and force, the balance they have after doing that which Allah is what I want them to do. They sacrifice it to the genetic
that's why you see people like a blind Mobarak you know,
they told us that this man was praying that this man was blessed by the last hotel and so many ways, extremely rich. And also extremely knowledgeable scholars, you know, he was so strong in his knowledge, one of the keys you know, in this analogy
and also at the same time, which is disability law, and at the same time, always pray in the night pray, you know, wherever there's something good, you know, this person is grabbing it to
so that's the life he was praying one day, a thief came to him.
And then that thief stole his horse. And he bought this horse 30,000 dinar
30,000 dinar that's a lot. Every 20 dinar is equivalent to 15 to 18,000. Ringgit imagine the horse 30,000 dinar. He was praying one day somebody came and took it from him.
So when he slayed came back and he couldn't find the horse, he asked me sure who is the horse?
He said somebody took it. He said, whoever you he was playing. It said I need to not stop the prayer. Because he knows that Islamically if somebody comes to attack you well, you have a right to go. But those people are different from us in our last lecture, but right give you a right if somebody is stealing your car, you can stop the brain and go and get him.
But I just want us to understand how much those people value the Acura more than the dunya.
So what happened was he told him I was praying.
He said I need to not stop. He said yes. I was praying. Why would I stop my prayer? Because of this.
So is that is it okay? Then make dua against him?
Is it okay like
he needs of his hands so you can see that heart is very pure and clean. You know? He raised his hand. He said yeah, Allah. If this person who's told my horse
He was doing that because of poverty that he's in. Yeah Allah He asked you to make him rich, Salah Muhammad Allah, Allah make you rich
and even he was doing it out of following the desire you know he doesn't have any reason why to do I mean he's doing this but he just wanted to see if he has enough but still he wants to see he said yeah Allah I asked you to guide him no curse no anything either ask Him for guidance for Allah squatter to make him rich.
That's how the value the prayers
and that's how the glue was Sofia management Deena are sitting in his house. You know? They said this man when he goes to the masjid, he doesn't take anyone to the masjid. He goes alone table and sisters because they want to prepare themselves. And this is also related to this question. How to prepare myself when I pray to have the taste.
Doing it according to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallahu alayhi salam and be ready for it before the prayer time. That means you make although on time and you move to the masjid and you pray some Sunnah prayers, you get a refreshment you sit down and read the Quran, you know all of your consciousness have come back to you and then stand up and pray the ones your prayers, but we didn't do that. We are the people of karma, we go to the mercy when their karma has been made, you know,
those ones who are not like that? One of them said that hassled basally and so it will say in the narrative from both of them, one of them spent 25 years when talking about divide times 25 years, he never listened to the other one out of the Masjid. So huddled together 25 years he never listened to the other one out of the masjid Hello.
One of them for the same amount of years or 15 years never missed a credit and continuously
were totally different. So how did they manage to reach this position because they have the Arca been placed on top of the dunya. They remember that this life is temporary and they are not here to stay forever. They are just here to have first and get as much as righteous deed so that they can make that journey to Allah subhanaw taala easy. So that management dinner was in his house if he comes to the house, and the fifth check in the house of this chef as well. I made a mistake. This is a student of Oracle. mean this is this color who doesn't have anything in the house No nothing except the mat where he sleeps. So the man couldn't see anything in the house. So when he finished
checking the house, he couldn't see anything. And Melinda was watching him and the team also doesn't have shyness, you know,
he couldn't see anything and then he left. While he was going out. Malik Mindanao told him he says my brother, he said Please wait.
He said since you couldn't find something of the dunya Do you have any interest in the akhira salah the man said yes I have. He said Come Mikado they made will do you know he goes with him visit visit first time they so Maliki when dinar walking with somebody to the masjid.
And they were even scared they told him you know who is this person? He said Yes, I know.
And the man according to his story became somebody else.
Monica Mindanao told him he came to steal our dunya you know, and he did not find anything but we we stole him We granted him the emaan
we hope and you came to steal us but we stole him you know what an attitude
so that's, that's that's how I see my dear brothers sisters. I mean, I know it's very difficult but if you seek the support from Allah subhanaw taala The first thing you should do is to understand that this life is temporary that favor the Ark era before the I mean over the I mean I'm sorry favorite the aka over the dunya and also make sure that when you go to the masjid try your best prepared the prayer for the prayer on time. Go to the masjid before the time. Pray the Sunnah. Sit down and make some vicar read the Quran that will help you to get some relief from the dunya before you be standing for the five daily prayers in front of Allah subhanaw taala so I guess in sha Allah
this will be simple tip in sha Allah if you are able to do the first one in the light either. Naturally the second one will will take place in sha Allah, masha Allah Merkel
just to share like for my personal experience, but perhaps people out there would benefit. What really changed my mindset about like Salah and obedience to Allah actually, you know, does get to not the element of seeking knowledge about Allah. So when you know Allah, you automatically know how great is Allah and you
You know, it changes the mindset that you think you want to sort of please him rather than waiting for, you know, telling him telling him what to do what to do you know, so, in my personal experience one benefit that I gained was
learning Aqeedah I really enjoyed the class when with you from near Santa lay, Mashallah. That was one benefit I derived from very greatly to improve the deeds, the prayers, especially as well. So, yeah, this is perhaps one one thing that I can share insha Allah.
And also, when Chiquita is talking about this reminds me one beautiful and simple thing mentioned to us by the Prophet sallallahu Suma was this prayer, which is the fact that the moment you say Allahu Akbar, do you know that Allah subhanaw taala will direct his face to you?
It's like you're present you're praying in the presence of the last one oh Tada. So if you have this feeling, although even see Allah subhanaw taala but it's like you are standing before Allah. That's the feeling which the predecessor has had, you know, that's why even as in the lobby agencies, I'm going to the meeting last month in the prayer. So have this feeling you know, Allah smarter will direct his face to you when you pray to Allah subhanaw taala and this is a fact you know, and this is a reality and for sure when this feeling is with you, but even the light Allah it helps you to manage, you know, the battle, you know, between you and shaytan and to be able to defeat him Xiaomi
Alas, modular fix. So, for sure.
I mean, just just Alchemilla Chiron
Okay, so we are moving on to the next question here on the questions submitted by the participants. And the first question that we have here.
What is the ruling on praying in the masjid for men and women considering the current pandemic and movement control orders? How do we keep ourselves motivated not not to miss the prayers at the message it
you should understand that the one you worship before Ramadan is still the one you worship in in Ramadan. And the one you worship before the pandemic is still the one you're worshiping. And the Sharia of Allah smartair remains in the way it was. The only thing is that if the Masada locked Allah subhanaw taala and bring this back again may Allah is going to help the OMA to see the end of this pandemic so that live will come back to normality inshallah. So when the Messiah did a lot, then you pray at home, Allah is going to the sees your intention, and he knows who you are. But the moment that massage are open, that a Muslim male is obliged to go to the Muslim and pray with them
with the GEMA according to your capability, you cannot come and have the same contact you used to have, do whatever you can do, but at least the massages are being kept alive. You know, this is very dangerous Allah it's very dangerous to have a situation whereby the massages are not being alive, unless there is somebody who's praying in the masjid. So brothers, they should go to the masjid sisters from the beginning, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam already advised them to pray at home, you know, not because of this, but generally their prayer at home is more valuable for them than praying in the massage. And as such, in this pandemic, it is not good for them to go. You know,
because even before Ramadan, the Prophet sallallahu Elisa said they should pray at home it is better for them to remove to reduce the crowd in the massage, they pray at home that's actually better for them and more affordable and more valuable. You know, for them, when they freeze. They pray to Allah subhanaw taala at home, but for the brothers, they have to go to the massage and they have to pray as long as there is a massage Masjid next to you. Who is praying in the masjid is open. You must go to the masjid and pray with the people last more to the grantors good.
I mean, Morocco affic. And the next question that we have here, what exactly is a class or sincerity? And what how one can get it? How do we maintain sincerity and intention for the sake of Allah during prayer and after prayer? Whether people pray at home or in the mosque? And how do you attain the level of who you are as well? With this? Yeah, sincerity is very simple, you know, which means to do everything for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala nothing should be in your heart except Allah. You're doing whatever you're doing to please the last one or two, let alone not to please others not to make other people happy not to make your parent or your wife or your husband or
whoever happy you're doing it only for Allah subhanaw taala so first you're doing it out of love, and you're doing it because Allah commanded you to do and you are directing the action to Allah subhanaw taala straightforward without being thinking of
