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

In Alhamdulillah,

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

sallam 31 and 30

00:00:43--> 00:00:45

Yeah, you

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

wire

00:01:07--> 00:01:08

one eight.

00:01:17--> 00:01:18

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

I want us to listen

00:01:24--> 00:01:25

carefully

00:01:26--> 00:01:27

to this dream

00:01:29--> 00:01:30

that was seen

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

by one who never lines

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

and interpreted

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

by those who cannot lie,

00:01:40--> 00:01:44

a dream that was seen by our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:01:45--> 00:01:49

and interpreted by none other than that into homes.

00:01:50--> 00:01:51

A very frightening dream

00:01:53--> 00:01:56

in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

describes many things that he saw.

00:02:02--> 00:02:10

But we just want to focus on one of those things that he witnessed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says to this companions,

00:02:11--> 00:02:13

as was his habit,

00:02:14--> 00:02:23

that he would ask them who saw a dream last night. But this time, he turns to them and he says, last night, I saw a dream.

00:02:24--> 00:02:29

I saw a dream in which two individuals came to me

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

and woke me up

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

and said to me proceed.

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

So I went with them.

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

And we came across

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

a man who was lying down.

00:02:44--> 00:02:51

We came across this man who was lying down, while another man was standing over his head

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

with a huge rock.

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

And so the man with a huge rock, he would throw it, he will throw that work

00:03:04--> 00:03:08

at the head of the man lying down, smashing his head into pieces.

00:03:10--> 00:03:14

Then the rock would roll away, and the man would go chase after it.

00:03:16--> 00:03:19

He would pick it up, and he would come back

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

to only find

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

that the man's head

00:03:25--> 00:03:29

had been restored, restored back to its normal position.

00:03:32--> 00:03:34

And then he would do the same.

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

He would throw the rock smashing his head

00:03:39--> 00:03:41

and then going after the rock and coming back

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

continuously.

00:03:44--> 00:03:49

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked the angels

00:03:50--> 00:03:51

who was this man?

00:03:53--> 00:03:58

And so they said to him proceed. And so he sort of continued with them.

00:04:01--> 00:04:05

Until he saw many other scenes, very horrible scenes,

00:04:06--> 00:04:14

until at the very end, he said, I have come across all of these wonders.

00:04:15--> 00:04:19

So is there an explanation to each of these?

00:04:20--> 00:04:21

And so they said, Yes.

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

As for the first man, the man you came across,

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

whose head was being smashed,

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

did he is the one

00:04:34--> 00:04:35

who learns the Foreign

00:04:37--> 00:04:37

Studies,

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

but does not recite it.

00:04:41--> 00:04:44

Nor does he act by his teachings, and

00:04:45--> 00:04:48

he sleeps in for so long.

00:04:49--> 00:04:52

Well, when the law comes in, he doesn't get out.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

He allows a time for Salah to go and that may be your previous Allah afterwards.

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

But the point is that he doesn't wake up for his solo.

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

And so my dear brothers and sisters

00:05:07--> 00:05:10

an unfortunate reality that we live in today

00:05:12--> 00:05:14

is that many among us

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

are negligent of our Salah

00:05:20--> 00:05:24

you have a huge percentage who do not pray at all.

00:05:26--> 00:05:31

And then you have those who pray at times, and other times they don't pray.

00:05:32--> 00:05:38

And then you have those who pray each one of their five Salawat.

00:05:39--> 00:05:39

But

00:05:40--> 00:05:45

they don't care if they paid on time. They don't care how they created.

00:05:46--> 00:06:04

They intentionally they leave their salon until the time finishes, and then they pray afterwards. All of these My dear brothers and sisters come under the same category of those who are neglectful, he lives they don't care about their son out. Obviously.

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

Some are in a more dangerous position than others, but they all come under the same category.

00:06:14--> 00:06:17

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us

00:06:18--> 00:06:20

to Lady Diana verbena will

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

cover

00:06:27--> 00:06:31

the treaty that is between us and them meaning the kuffaar is this Allah

00:06:32--> 00:06:38

whoever neglects it, whoever abandoned it, he has committed coup for the Sahaba

00:06:40--> 00:06:44

they did not consider a single act a single deed.

00:06:46--> 00:06:50

The abandoning of which is cool for accepts Allah.

00:06:52--> 00:06:55

He says, learn how perfil Islami

00:06:56--> 00:07:04

la Islami Lima usually there is no place in Islam. For the one who doesn't pray.

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

My dear brothers and sisters.

00:07:09--> 00:07:13

It's an unfortunate reality that we face today.

00:07:14--> 00:07:23

We are so many who claim to be Muslims, and yet they don't pray or they are neglectful with regards to their Salah.

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

This solo does not make a person religious,

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

but rather it makes him a Muslim.

00:07:34--> 00:07:39

This is the second pillar of Islam after the Shahada fame.

00:07:42--> 00:07:54

Just like a tent, a structure can only stand with all of its pillars. Likewise, a person Islam does not stand if one of its pillars is missing.

00:07:56--> 00:07:56

This

00:07:57--> 00:08:02

is the very first thing that each and every single one of us

00:08:04--> 00:08:37

will be questioned about. before Allah subhana wa tada on the Day of Judgment. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that it is the very first thing that will be asked about whoever is successful has passed that test. Then everything that comes after it, meaning all the questioning that you will be questionable after that, with regards to all of your other, all of your other deeds, it will become easy. But if you feel that first test, everything that comes after it

00:08:38--> 00:08:50

will be made difficult. Your teeth won't be accepted. If you don't pray. Allah subhana wa tada commanded us to pray disarm is the only thing

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

that no one has an excuse for abandoning.

00:08:58--> 00:09:03

If you're traveling, if you are sick, You are excused from fasting.

00:09:08--> 00:09:21

But even when you're traveling, even when you're sick, you're still required to pray. Whether Muslims are at peace or whether they are in a state of war, even on the battleground, they are commanded to pray

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

this alone

00:09:25--> 00:09:26

there is nothing

00:09:28--> 00:09:33

that shaitan is more keen on distracting us from the sofa.

00:09:35--> 00:09:37

He comes to us when we prayed

00:09:38--> 00:09:43

whispering to us trying to distract us more than any other time. Why?

00:09:46--> 00:09:47

Because he knows

00:09:49--> 00:09:50

that if

00:09:51--> 00:09:53

you establish your salon

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

properly

00:09:57--> 00:09:58

then he has lost you

00:10:01--> 00:10:02

My dear brothers and sisters

00:10:04--> 00:10:08

after all this, what excuse do we have

00:10:09--> 00:10:13

for being neglectful with regards to our salon

00:10:14--> 00:10:45

and this goes for our earrings, who I regret in teaching their children about salah and its importance. Some of them have reached the age of 10 have reached the age of puberty, or teenagers or adults, and they haven't been told about the importance and the significance of this salon. Why? What excuse Do we have what excuse when we have before Allah subhanho wa Taala when he asks us votings

00:10:48--> 00:10:52

My dear brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

Man half ago honey ha

00:10:57--> 00:10:57

Machado

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

00:11:06--> 00:11:08

whoever preserves his ally,

00:11:10--> 00:11:21

he will have a late he will have a proof and he will be saved on the Day of Judgment, what is it ha, salami akula, who

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

would have would have

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

won on a job

00:11:28--> 00:11:31

and the one who does not preserve it, he will have no links

00:11:33--> 00:11:40

he will have no proof he will have no salvation on the Day of Judgment, what are your middle tn

00:11:43--> 00:11:47

what our coruna will be even if they have any kind of

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

what will be even high enough

00:11:53--> 00:12:03

and he will be raised on the Day of Judgment with who with Fairholme would hammer with qarun and will be even heard of the leader of the mafia.

00:12:05--> 00:12:11

For affirming daddy him holophone although sanata whatever shadow IT

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

and they proceeded after them generations.

00:12:20--> 00:12:21

After

00:12:23--> 00:12:28

the richest generations, there came after them.

00:12:29--> 00:12:37

generations who although salata what was Shahada, who neglected their salah

00:12:38--> 00:12:42

and follow their lusts and their desires, for some will fail.

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

They will meet

00:12:45--> 00:12:59

they will meet evil consequences. This is the danger of becoming neglectful of our salon. Neglecting it also means delaying it.

00:13:00--> 00:13:03

As many of us have become accustomed

00:13:04--> 00:13:08

to delete our salon not caring

00:13:09--> 00:13:20

about the fact that the time has ended. And seeing it's not a big deal Oh pretty later on. especially nowadays, with the days becoming shorter and the salaah

00:13:22--> 00:13:25

each solo coming closer and closer.

00:13:28--> 00:13:32

Allah subhana wa tada says, For when you lean muscle lean

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

world to the people who pray

00:13:38--> 00:13:41

a lady in her hometown Salatu himself Hoon

00:13:44--> 00:13:48

those who are neglectful of their Salaam.

00:13:52--> 00:14:06

He says explaining the Tafseer of this if it refers to those. It refers to those who delay their salon meaning intentionally until the time finishes and then they pray.

00:14:08--> 00:14:10

barakallahu li walakum feel

00:15:44--> 00:15:46

Why is there so much emphasis

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

on this saga?

00:15:53--> 00:15:59

What Why is it so dangerous to be neglectful of our Salah?

00:16:00--> 00:16:05

It's not because Allah subhana wa tada gets anything out of it.

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

Allah subhanahu wa tada is not in need of us. He is not in need of our ADA. He is not in need of our sacrifices.

00:16:18--> 00:16:20

But yet he has commanded us to worship Him.

00:16:21--> 00:16:28

He has commanded us to sacrifice everything for him. Not because he gets anything out of it.

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

But rather

00:16:31--> 00:16:39

because it is we who get something out of it. We are the ones who are in need know Allah Subhana Allah Allah.

00:16:41--> 00:16:48

Allah subhana wa tada legislated everything that he did. For our sake, not for his sake.

00:16:49--> 00:16:52

Allah also caribou attallah made this salon

00:16:54--> 00:17:03

to be the source of salvation for us, the source of good for us, both in this life and an X.

00:17:05--> 00:17:09

So why would you after all of that, being neglectful of it.

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

This is your role. It is your connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

If you neglect your Salah, you have cut that wrong. And that connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

this salon

00:17:26--> 00:17:30

it is the closest you get to your lips of Hannah who

00:17:31--> 00:17:35

was Judah walk 30 hour command just to make such

00:17:37--> 00:17:47

to get close to him. Why? Because in the state of subdued, you are the closest that you can ever be to Allah subhana wa Tada This Salam

00:17:49--> 00:17:53

just like your body is in need of nourishment.

00:17:54--> 00:18:09

Your soul is also in need of nourishment. If you don't eat, you're gonna die. If you don't, if you don't rain, you're gonna kill your soul. And that's the reality. This alone is the source of peace.

00:18:10--> 00:18:18

It is a source of tranquility in our lives, which is why the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would command VLAN

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

vihara jablon

00:18:23--> 00:18:33

bring us peace, bring us comfort through it through saliva began. Meaning gives the other the ability because through our salon, we gain comfort.

00:18:35--> 00:18:43

We gain peace we gain tranquility, which is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whenever he was in a state of distress.

00:18:44--> 00:18:50

Whenever something was bothering him, whenever he was in some worried the highest

00:18:51--> 00:18:54

he says he would turn to Salah

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

for us we don't do that.

00:18:59--> 00:19:04

We turn to the doctors. We turn to antidepressants.

00:19:05--> 00:19:10

We turn to others instead of turning to Allah subhanho Adana

00:19:12--> 00:19:16

this summer, it is a key to all goodness

00:19:17--> 00:19:21

it is the only thing that brings a bow good in our lions

00:19:24--> 00:19:29

Salatu was tavira luchar his nephew Nora Zuko

00:19:32--> 00:19:39

Allah subhana wa tada tells us after commanding us to command our family to perform Salah.

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

He says

00:19:44--> 00:19:50

that we don't command you to look for provision risk, but rather it is we it is alone

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

who provides

00:19:54--> 00:19:57

and so it's unfortunate that many people today

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

they

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

Use a risk

00:20:02--> 00:20:08

and work and their jobs as a as an excuse for abandoning their salon

00:20:09--> 00:20:11

saying I carry out work

00:20:13--> 00:20:19

and they prefer that over their solo. Whereas the loss of China who attended tells us here

00:20:20--> 00:20:26

Do not worry about that, as long as you pray that Allah subhanahu attallah will provide for you.

00:20:28--> 00:20:30

And it is because of all of this

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

that Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:20:36--> 00:20:41

In the event he teaches us Hagia Helen Farah

00:20:42--> 00:20:48

come to success because it is this saga

00:20:49--> 00:21:00

that will give a success not only in the actor, but also in the dunya. And finally my dear brothers and sisters, preserving our son allow

00:21:02--> 00:21:07

our five DD son a lot by not abandoning them,

00:21:08--> 00:21:10

not a single one of them,

00:21:11--> 00:21:19

nor deleting them until their time finishers. by preserving our subtle left, we are proving

00:21:20--> 00:21:25

our love for Allah subhana wa tada and recognition

00:21:26--> 00:21:31

of his blessings upon us, the one who created you

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

the one who gave you everything that you have, the one who gave you your eye is the one who gave you your eaters.

00:21:41--> 00:21:47

The one who gave you your life The one who gave you your breath that you breathe with.

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

Isn't he deserving

00:21:52--> 00:21:53

of our gratitude

00:21:56--> 00:21:59

by praying and preserving our Salawat

00:22:00--> 00:22:09

we are being grateful to Allah subhanahu wa Tada This is the least that we can do. To show our gratitude to Allah subhanahu wa

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

We ask Allah subhana wa tada

00:22:14--> 00:22:33

to make us from among those who preserve our son Allah and to make us from among those who make our children to preserve their Salawat We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make the Salah, a source of peace for us, a source of salvation for us in Asheville.

00:22:34--> 00:22:34
