00:01:04--> 00:01:06

I felt was and how we

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

My dear brothers and sisters last week,

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

we spoke about

00:01:15--> 00:01:21

the importance of the second pillar of Islam or Salah

00:01:23--> 00:01:28

its importance, its significance, and some of its benefits.

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

However, many among us,

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

who consider themselves

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

to be regular at their salah,

00:01:43--> 00:01:46

praying their five daily Salawat

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

on time

00:01:52--> 00:01:53

many

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

they lack

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

an integral part of the Salah.

00:02:03--> 00:02:07

The very spirit of the Salah, the very heart of Salah

00:02:09--> 00:02:14

and because of that, they find that they don't achieve that benefit of the Salah.

00:02:17--> 00:02:20

And that essence that spirit that heart of Salah

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

is none other than unusual.

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

Uh huh sure

00:02:31--> 00:02:34

is to humble yourself before Allah subhana wa Tada

00:02:37--> 00:02:44

to free your heart of everything besides Allah subhana wa Tada when you're standing before him

00:02:46--> 00:02:55

to feel the presence of Allah subhana who were to Allah in your heart, to focus on your Salah, to concentrate, not to become distracted,

00:02:57--> 00:03:04

to know what you're doing in your Salah to know what you're seeing. All this is the essence of Salah.

00:03:05--> 00:03:11

And so it exists in the heart, but then it appears outwardly as well.

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

And so this whole show is something

00:03:18--> 00:03:22

that is difficult for almost every single one of us.

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

But we vary.

00:03:26--> 00:03:33

We vary in the degree of a lack of wushu in our Salah for some

00:03:36--> 00:03:40

when we enter the salon until we leave the salon

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

we haven't paid attention to anything.

00:03:46--> 00:03:52

We have zero for sure in our salon. But for others it's on off it's in between

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

and no one no one is safe

00:03:58--> 00:04:05

from a lack of Kosher in our salah, but we vary in degrees and that's why Omar Abdullah,

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

for whom original photography Allah was

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

being who he was.

00:04:13--> 00:04:16

Even he says that in my salah.

00:04:17--> 00:04:20

I will be preparing an entire army

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

in another narration it says

00:04:29--> 00:04:36

the overall the Allah one he would say that in my salah. I will be calculating the jizya that is coming from behind

00:04:41--> 00:04:55

and so no one is saved from having a completely perfect Salah with complete perfect for sure. But we vary in degrees. And so some of us don't care and we continue being heedless, and continue with our thoughts.

00:04:57--> 00:04:58

But others

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

which

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

mental struggle

00:05:02--> 00:05:06

and we fight those thoughts and we try our best to concentrate.

00:05:08--> 00:05:24

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explaining the various degrees of people in their salah. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in no Roger Lyon sorry Fleming Salah T one Ikuti Bella who Illa shrew ha?

00:05:25--> 00:05:33

What is Ruha whoo hoo ha was Suguru ha was sudo su ha homeless who had what I was talking to her when

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

he says some people they would observe their soul

00:05:40--> 00:05:43

but in terms of the Agile that they get from it,

00:05:45--> 00:06:01

some only get a 10th of it. Others only a ninth others only an eighth others only seven others only a six others only a fifth of fourth or third and some only a half of the measure of Salah.

00:06:02--> 00:06:06

And so praying is one thing, praying or five daily Salawat

00:06:07--> 00:06:21

making sure you don't miss any of them. Making sure that you pray on time. That's one thing that saves you from the punishment of those who will be punished due to their abandoning of Salah.

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

But the reward gained from each Salah

00:06:28--> 00:06:34

that is not something that everyone achieves Ibaka you Ibrahim Rahim Allah he says

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

explaining this point he says

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

that Salah without Huzoor

00:06:42--> 00:06:46

Salah without the sugar and mental presence

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

is like a body without a soul.

00:06:52--> 00:06:57

Isn't it shameful for a person to gift another human being like himself

00:06:58--> 00:06:59

a dead slave.

00:07:00--> 00:07:11

In the past, a slave was a very precious commodity. And if you wanted to gift a king or someone special with something, you would gift them with a sleeve.

00:07:12--> 00:07:15

How does it feel to gift someone but that's

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

and so that is how

00:07:19--> 00:07:26

that is how your Salah is with a Cushaw you're gifting to Allah subhana wa Tada something dead.

00:07:28--> 00:07:34

Abraham says in another place, every person must stand before Allah subhana wa Tada twice.

00:07:35--> 00:07:39

Each and every single one of us must stand before Allah twice.

00:07:40--> 00:08:00

The first if he stands in his Salah when he stands before him in this dunya and the second, when he stands before Allah, on the day of judgment. He says, Whoever stands before Allah in this dunya in his Salah, the way he should,

00:08:01--> 00:08:05

then the second standing on the Day of Judgment will be easy for him.

00:08:06--> 00:08:12

But if he doesn't stand in this dunya in his Salah, the way he should,

00:08:13--> 00:08:24

then the second standing, the standing on the Day of Judgment will be made difficult for him. Why? Because as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us

00:08:25--> 00:08:33

the very first thing that we will be brought to account on the day of judgment before Allah is none other than our salah.

00:08:34--> 00:08:53

Whoever perfected it, then everything that comes after will be made easy for him. But whoever was heedless and neglectful of his salah, then the rest of the questioning by Allah will be made difficult for him to answer. And so why is it that many of us we lack in our social

00:08:55--> 00:08:56

The reason is very simple

00:08:57--> 00:09:02

because of a lack of Eman and a lack of your team

00:09:03--> 00:09:06

a lack of Eman and a lack of your team

00:09:07--> 00:09:10

or lots of China who have data describing the people of Eman

00:09:11--> 00:09:18

with several different characteristics. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, If law has been

00:09:20--> 00:09:39

successful indeed are the people of Eman the believers the mean Who are they? And then all our lists several characteristics of who they are starting with and let you know whom few so that you can call she rule those who endures Allah. They have who Sure.

00:09:40--> 00:09:46

So this shows us that those who don't have for sure and there's a lot they're lacking in their Eman

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada

00:09:51--> 00:09:54

he says, What's the you disobey? Allah?

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

We're in the rotten Illa Allah hace la

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

In that Salah is burdensome it's difficult for who?

00:10:09--> 00:10:14

For everyone except those who have for sure. Who are those who have for sure

00:10:16--> 00:10:17

and let you know whom

00:10:19--> 00:10:27

fix for naughty him hace room. Allah subhana wa Tada says Illa Allah hace en el Medina.

00:10:28--> 00:10:45

Medina Johan Munna hula de him? What an easy Raji rule? Who are the people of for sure, they are those who know, with certainty with the opinion that they will meet a walk meaning on the day of judgment.

00:10:46--> 00:10:50

And so a lack of Eman and a lack of your team is why

00:10:51--> 00:10:59

we lack in our role, because if you certainly surely, with conviction from the bottom of your heart knew

00:11:00--> 00:11:02

who you are standing before

00:11:03--> 00:11:07

you wouldn't allow yourself to wander off in your soul.

00:11:09--> 00:11:10

Which is why the setup

00:11:12--> 00:11:16

were completely different to us. In terms of their crucial and their salon.

00:11:17--> 00:11:21

We have so many stories of how they would stand in their salon.

00:11:22--> 00:11:41

until they've been Zubair rubeola who they say that he would be standing as if he was a tree standing in the forest not moving. When he would go down into sujood. The birds would come onto his back, thinking that he was a wall that they're standing on.

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

One of the set of

00:11:46--> 00:11:49

Muslim mdsr He was praying in the masjid.

00:11:52--> 00:11:54

And an entire side of the masjid fell.

00:11:56--> 00:12:00

The people in the market they rushed in commotion, what has happened

00:12:01--> 00:12:03

while he found him still in his salon

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

unchanged in his continuous condition.

00:12:11--> 00:12:13

And we even find examples of this today.

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

There was this clip that was circulating on social media

00:12:19--> 00:12:24

of a man who was praying with his son who may have been eight years old, next to him

00:12:26--> 00:12:27

on the sidewalk,

00:12:28--> 00:12:32

and suddenly, a canine dog came barking at him,

00:12:33--> 00:12:39

stood right next to them barking at them. The sudden he was frightened and wanting to get up.

00:12:40--> 00:12:42

And the father was holding him down.

00:12:44--> 00:12:51

He held him down. He continued his salah, he was in his final Tisha hood. The dog was barking,

00:12:52--> 00:12:57

but he was continuing in his salon. When finally the dog calmed down

00:12:58--> 00:13:07

and sat down next to them and finally laid down. What does it show us? It showed us that you're clean of this man this father

00:13:09--> 00:13:18

showed us his Eman and his your cane in the one who he was standing before. If that was one of us, what would we do?

00:13:19--> 00:13:34

We would run off. Why? Because of a lack of our iman. He knew that the one who he was standing before was the same one who had control of the stock and who could bring it under control.

00:13:35--> 00:13:38

That is the salah of the people of crucial

00:13:40--> 00:13:57

BarakAllahu li Walakum Quran and Are we one of our Annual er Combi mafia he mean it was it could Hakeem Kulu Mantis Marang WhatsApp Fetullah hurry welcome Melissa you didn't see me and could lead them they know Katya festival Bureau who didn't know who kind of affair or what to do in no time to web

00:15:05--> 00:15:06

My dear brothers and sisters

00:15:08--> 00:15:10

having crucial are in our Salah

00:15:12--> 00:15:15

is an integral part of perfecting our Salah.

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

So if we want to truly benefit from our Salah

00:15:21--> 00:15:25

if we want to gain that benefit from it

00:15:28--> 00:15:30

which we spoke about last week

00:15:31--> 00:15:39

of how this Allah we are the ones who benefit Allah subhanho wa Taala does it benefit anything from our ADA and our salah

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

the benefit is gained by us.

00:15:45--> 00:15:59

So if you truly want to gain that benefit from our salah, then we have to have for sure in it, why is it that most of us, we don't benefit from our salah, not gaining that peace, that serenity that tranquility in our lives.

00:16:01--> 00:16:06

Not having this Allah to prevent us from an fascia and sins.

00:16:08--> 00:16:15

Not feeling that connection with Allah subhana wa Tada. The reason for it is because of our lack of crucial.

00:16:17--> 00:16:23

So there are many things that we can do to help us to gain this crucial in our salah.

00:16:24--> 00:16:26

Among these things is first and foremost,

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

showing importance to this pillar of Islam

00:16:33--> 00:16:39

showing importance to it, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would show importance to it.

00:16:41--> 00:16:53

And so when that event will be called, and he would be among his family or among his companions, he would leave whatever he was doing, and he would rush to the salah.

00:16:54--> 00:17:07

Most of us, we don't care when the exam goes, we say we'll pray later, until the end time. Some of us the end time comes and we find ourselves we pray after the time has already finished.

00:17:09--> 00:17:17

Among the things that will help us to gain crucial in our Salah is by realizing the reality of who were standing before.

00:17:20--> 00:17:25

We're not standing before anyone. We're not standing before any creative being.

00:17:26--> 00:17:39

We're not standing before any notable person in this world, not before a president not before a king, but rather before the King of all kings, the creator of the universe.

00:17:41--> 00:17:46

In every model, the Allah who he wants saw his sleeve nephila.

00:17:48--> 00:17:51

He took off his turban and he was praying.

00:17:53--> 00:17:54

And so he said to him, Jana

00:17:57--> 00:18:00

How would you stand if you were to stand before the assault on

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

the Khalifa.

00:18:03--> 00:18:14

He said I would put all my best clothes, I would wrap my turban nicely, and then stand in His presence. So it'd be normal said to him

00:18:17--> 00:18:23

that you should stand in an even better manner. When you stand before Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:18:25--> 00:18:26

Among other things that will help us

00:18:28--> 00:18:37

to gain our control or in our Salah is by making sure that nothing in our surroundings will distract us.

00:18:39--> 00:18:45

Many times we pray in a place where things are distracting us, either objects

00:18:46--> 00:18:54

or designs or noise. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once he prayed in a garment that had a design on it.

00:18:56--> 00:18:57

So after his Salah

00:18:58--> 00:19:05

he took it off and he threw it away. He said it hurts me honey Salah It distracted me from my salah.

00:19:07--> 00:19:14

Among the things that will help us to gain crucial in our Salah is to pray, as if

00:19:15--> 00:19:18

you see Allah subhanahu wa taala before you

00:19:19--> 00:19:27

and that is the very definition of sun and Telugu the Wahaca Ana Katara

00:19:28--> 00:19:33

to worship Allah as if you can see him for inlanta Contura for in New York

00:19:35--> 00:19:57

to pray to Allah as if you can see him. But then realize that although you cannot see Him, then surely he is watching you. He is seeing you your every movement, your every your every statement that you see in your salon to the point where your every thought in your heart

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

is heard by all

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

So

00:20:02--> 00:20:11

among the things that will help us to gain who are in our Salah is by focusing on the meanings of what we are seeing,

00:20:12--> 00:20:44

from the moment, we say Allahu Akbar, ponder over that. What are you seeing? You'll see saying Allah is the Greatest. What does that mean? It means that Allah is far greater than everything else in this dunya. So if thoughts come to your mind, remind yourself that Allah subhanahu wa, is far greater than my worries, ALLAH SubhanA what data is far greater than these thoughts?

00:20:46--> 00:21:30

Among the things that will help us to gain crucial in our Salah is by focusing on the meanings when we see a rule to bIllahi min ash shaytani regime, what does it mean? We are seeking refuge in Allah from shaitan. Among the things that she thought does, is that he comes to us in our salah. And so think you are asking Allah to pretend to from the whisperings of shaitan when you receive too little fat you have ponder over the fact that you are conversing with Allah subhanho wa Taala every single statement that you make in spiritual Fatiha, Allah responds to you as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed us when you go down into the cool

00:21:32--> 00:21:40

imagine the greatness of Allah, the one you are bowing before when you get up and see some yeah Allah holy man Hamidah.

00:21:42--> 00:21:49

Allah here is the one who praises him. Remember, Allah is Hearing your every word, when you go down to sujood.

00:21:50--> 00:22:05

Ponder over the fact that you are lowering yourself and you have not lowered yourself to such a low state, except because of the greatness of the one who you are lowering yourself before.

00:22:07--> 00:22:23

The only way we can achieve that is if we ponder over the meanings, even if we don't understand the Arabic language. Read the meanings, memorize them, so that they are present in our minds when we pray.

00:22:24--> 00:22:35

Among the things that will help us to gain crucial in our Salah is by not rushing through it, not rushing through our salah, which unfortunately many of us do, especially our young ones.

00:22:38--> 00:22:47

And so we should move through the steps of our Salah in a gradual manner. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once asked his companions

00:22:48--> 00:22:51

What do you consider to be theft?

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

And so they said,

00:22:54--> 00:22:56

for someone to steal from his brother,

00:22:57--> 00:23:00

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no.

00:23:01--> 00:23:15

That is not the meaning of theft, but rather, the meaning of theft is to steal from your salon. They ask them How can a person steal from his salon? He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, law you Tim marucho

00:23:17--> 00:23:24

What has to do? What are for sure? He does not perfect. He's a little cooler nor has to dude. No, he's for sure.

00:23:26--> 00:23:46

Among the things that will help us to gain who in our Salah is by seeking refuge in Allah from shaitan every single time that Sheikh shaitan comes and whispers to us distracting us. Among the things that will help us to gain crucial in our Salah is to pray,

00:23:48--> 00:23:59

to pray, as if we will never prix ever again. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said either come to either Kentucky Salah attic for solidly Salah tell me what

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

he said to one of his companions, when you stand up to pray before Allah pray the prayer of the one who is bidding farewell from this dunya

00:24:14--> 00:24:16

How would you observe your salon

00:24:20--> 00:24:21

How would you observe your salon

00:24:23--> 00:24:24

if you knew

00:24:26--> 00:24:34

that right after you see your salon and complete your salon, the Angel of Death is waiting to take away your soul.
