My dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam, I welcome you to a series I chose to call it, glimpses from the chapters of the Quran.
And today insha Allah, we will begin with Sora to the Fatiha.
So glimpses from Surah two Fatiha This is part one, so that we keep track.
We're not doing literal explanation of the chapters or others we are trying to provide
a MapQuest a GPS for you to understand the surah so that when you recite it, you reflect on it.
Brothers and sisters in Islam Salatu Fatiha is an extremely important chapter of in the Quran. It is the opener. Imagine this is the chapter Allah subhana wa Taala chose to place at the very beginning of the most half because we read from right to left. If you open the most half the first chapter, you'll find in front of you is sort of to Fatiha
and for a wisdom and it must be a great divine wisdom. Every single Muslim is required to recite it at least 17 times a day
or heated recited 17 times a day.
And if you add to this the 12 voluntary arrakis units which we observe throughout the day, that is 29 and if you add a minimum one which that is 30 times a day brothers and sisters in Islam, there must be a wisdom there.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described it described Surah Al Fatiha to be the greatest chapter in the Quran.
In a an authentic hadith, combined with Alabama gohari the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to one of his companions, I will teach you that greatest chapter revealed in the Quran. Before you leave the masjid today, and later on he revealed to him this greatest chapter is Surah Al Fatiha brothers and sisters in Islam. Salatu Fatiha is a sub burl metheny one qurani labin the seven after repeated verses referred to in chapter ehedg. While occurred at a NACA sub ban Minh and Bethany, one for analyzing it is also called multitap, the mother of the book because it contains the foundation of Islam.
And as if every little every chapter in the Quran is to explain sort of the Fatiha
without any further delay, I want you to learn three things from Surah Fatiha.
The first element, it will help you to develop horseshoe what is for sure the presence of the heart in the Salah, which is something a lot of us suffer from.
The second meaning or the second benefit I want you to get from the surah is the understanding of the hate and how the surah contained the three types of hate.
The third meaning that I want you to get from this chapter is the certainty when you make dua because Surah Fatiha is the what is a supplication.
And to some extent you're following the etiquettes of the DA when you recite it.
And there there are promises a general promise from Allah and a particular promise from Allah to us. That whatever we ask, whenever we ask Allah using sola to refer to her and the ending of surah, Al Baqarah, whatever is there, Allah will give it to you, and I'll explain that. So basically, we want to develop three things from understanding sort of the Fatiha. The first, which we'll try to address today is the presence of the heart and the mind in the Salah. The second is the proper understanding of the heat.
And number three is having certainty when you make dua, using this chapter, brothers and sisters in Islam,
as for sure, the submission of the heart, we know we all struggle with this. Imagine as soon as you say Allahu Akbar, you're supposed to apply Allahu Akbar, meaning Allah is greater than what you're leaving. And your focus now is with Allah subhanho wa Taala. But unfortunately, as soon as we say Allahu Akbar, the thoughts come to us from all directions, and we're distracted.
That the heart is not present. Now,
someone who observes the Salah if he understands the meanings
of Salatu Fatiha
in context of this Hadith, he will be able to develop horseshoe in the Salah.
The Hadith is narrated in a Muslim Hadith Abu hurayrah radi Allahu anhu the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,
Allah subhana wa tada Allah says, This is what we call Hadith Pudsey
are similar to similar to our son to Salah to beanie.
beanie verbena, Urbina, denas Feeny
I have divided the sala
de Sala here means Al Fatiha
the word of the Salah. He means, in fact, the rest of the Hadith is the evidence for that. But why?
why it is called the Salah two reasons because the Salah is invalid without reciting in Fatiha.
The Hadith is agreed upon Hadith obata masama Torah the Allahu anhu la sala Taliban Lamia Cola, data
loss alone a few 100 In addition, no Salah
the validity of the Salah, lace lF Nuffield Carmel Neff, Lama Natsu, you're actually negating the whole Act. The whole act is invalid because the citing effect, insula is a pillar of salah and we will come to this inshallah we'll explain that in more details. Especially if you're being a mount
for you learn so let me let me look at it and that is why it's called Salah because the Salah doesn't
is invalid without it, the Salah is invalid without it. This is one also the meaning of the word Salah linguistically is not
the linguistic meaning of the word Salah. There is a linguistic meaning and there is
what do you call that?
technical meanings. The technical meaning of the Salah is certain acts beginning with Allahu Akbar ending with a Solomonic amatola
that's the Salah. But the linguistic meaning of the word Salah is Dr. hookman am wearing him solder cotton to the hero whom what was a key him Bihar was an era him
take from the wealth or azula as a cattle man and suddenly a lie meaning need to ask for them.
So Salah you
means that's why Allah subhana wa tada is saying, I have divided split the sola to Fatiha, which validate your Salah or the dry made in Surah Fatiha between me and my slave benei avena abdeen is fine
two halves one half for me one half in which my sleeve breezes me and the other half my slave requests certain things from me. Imagine this for either call a lobby to win my sleeve C's and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen imagine this when you say this when you stand in the Salah, and you say Alhamdulillah your beloved I mean imagine this, Allah will say hamadani Abdi
my slave has praised me.
Here a lot. Imagine when you when you are in Salah, reciting on Fatiha, you're having a conversation with Allah subhanho wa Taala when you're having a conversation with a loss of Hannah data should you be distracted? If you reflect upon these words, my sleep has raised me by when you say a rock man or rahmanir rahim
the merciful and the incredibly merciful. You know what Allah will say? Allah will say f now Allah Yeah, Abdi, my slave has exalted me. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar.
And when you say Maliki only Dean, or many kiyomi, Dean,
Owner of the Day of Judgment, Allah Subhana Allah will say he's magetta nobody was he love so wha la Yaba de my slave has glorified magnified me. Yeah, LA. Imagine this. Imagine this is happening in the Salah. That is why Omar Abdulaziz Rahim Allah, one of the offspring of Omar will hop up
when he would leave the Salah.
He used to be Amelia momineen at one time, and he would lead the Muslims and Salah. So he would say Alhamdulillah you know, I mean, and he would pass we'll stop for a little bit. We'll stop for a little bit. So that people after the Salah will ask him, Why are you stopping like this? He said, I want to hear Allah answering me. I want to say hi Melanie Abdi.
Imagine this. Imagine this, when you stand in the Salah brothers and says looking down and allies talking to you and having sutra nobody suppose that is the beauty of of connecting
small rituals like having a sutra like looking down.
Your heart is present your mind is present in the Salah
rituals like this which some people consider to be insignificant with the belief that Allah is talking to you. Allah is looking at you. So panna, in a way the truth is majesty. So when you say Alhamdulillah you're not blind. I mean, R Rahman Rahim, Maliki and when we do imagine those three so that that is the port which belongs to Allah, you braised Allah subhana wa Tada.
You have praised Allah subhana wa Tada. And normally brothers and sisters in Islam, when you're, you're talking to Allah subhanho wa Taala you begin with praising him Subhana you praising his lordship that he creates that's what the meaning of that up, he owns. He has the sovereignty he provides he noticias who nourishes the body with with with water with food with vegetation, the soul with the revelation with the Quran with with the Sunnah, with the with the submission with Islam, all right, he takes care of what he created, and he takes care of it on the basis of mercy. That is why Allah named two names which are identical, but when they are paired, they are not. They mean
different things. But
man means Mercy is a manifestation of the mercy of Rahim is a manifestation of the mercy. But of course when when you're paired them together in one verse, But Allah is emphasizing, emphasizing that he takes care of us on the basis of mercy.
And then medical with Dean he owns ever he owns the hereafter.
He owns the hereafter.
Now, should you ask someone else for things
should you come up? Should you know you should not wear that look a little
This a man who led the final outcome for mirage of his room. Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who created you ally. Let the fellow who come to Morocco come to me to come to my eco
helming Shoraka eco mania following their local minchie Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who created you,
then he provides for you, then he will cause you to die, then he will give you life afterwards.
There are other associates rivals with Allah who can do any of these. What is the answer is no.
As a result of this, you should say what a Cana abodo yuckiness in the alone we worship the alone we seek Hill to do so. So this is the draft so this is the part you're asking a lot. The first half you braised a lot. A lot said that half is for me and half for my slave. So here's the first thing that you're asking Allah subhana wa, Oh Allah guide me to worship you and give me strength to do so. Give me guidance to the strength to do and strength to do so. Look what Allah will say when you say you're gonna Buddha you're gonna stay in and us Allah, Allah, Allah will say have been you have a nada de vida de ma said, this is between me and my slave. I know what my slave wants, and I will
give my slave what he's looking for. He wants to worship me. He wants to defeat his knifes his Genie shaitan and his human shape on the dounia the love of worldly things he wants to defeat that and that is why I know what he wants. He's serious about it. He means it he's not plastic, you know? And I will give it to him. A bit of syrup almost Akin goddess with a straight path. I want the week you i wanna i want i want to go to you I want to I want to travel to Allah subhana wa Tada. And this straight path is the path of those who earned your Allah your ledger. Nana Nana metal Islam net mapa de la rasulillah they are guided with Islam. What are the Tula cool Islam Medina.
Aloma acmella to LA comme de la come
to La, la, la la la de la cuchara V to la cual Islam Medina, a lot said that in the field will go off. Today I completed the religion for you. And Islam and I completed the meta bounty and the bounty is what Islam

well my daughter in law however soon whoever obeys Allah, his messenger will be in the company for Mr. Latina and
also the Pina was sure that he was solid in so and I'm a low volume again
Namah here the bounty is that Allah guides you to obey Him and obey His Messenger.
Now, you don't want the way of those who went astray, whether intentionally or knowingly. And as a result of this, they earned the wrath and the anger of Allah, Allah him or those who went astray.
out of ignorance, out of ignorance, they don't want to worship Allah, they decided to, to worship Allah according to whatever the way you know. So basically, we have two categories of people who have the knowledge and they don't apply the knowledge. They don't follow it.
Because they are distracted with with worldly things, whether musician or arrogance or bright. All those who
worship Allah maybe sincerely but out of ignorance. They want to go to a law from their own perspective. They don't want to follow a loss of Hannah who, what I imagine when you're saying enough, Surat Al Mustafa Pema, serrata Latina and I'm Tara Lee him over here in Malibu via la him wall of wall lien. You know what the law says? Have there been any obeying either the way up the mess and this is between me and my slave, and indeed my slave will get what he asked for the shed brothers and sisters in Islam. The first benefit that we want to get today from Salatu Fatiha is the developing of Joshua, the presence of the heart, mind and soul in the Salah. And this can happen
When you reflect upon the fact that when you say Alhamdulillah your blood I mean Allah is answering you. manner Rahim Allah is answering you Maliki only been alive spoken back to you in a certain way you're gonna stay alive spoken back to you. He did not set off Allah stuffy Allah is talking back to you sarafa Latina alas token back to you. So imagine should you be distracted with a laptop back to you? Should you the answer is no. We ask a lot of that is why brothers and sisters in Islam before you engage in the deciding the salah and reciting and Fatiha what happened. You're supposed to say oh to realize me, apology. Bin Hamza he went, he went because shadeland is not gonna allow you
shaitan is not gonna allow you. json is gonna try to distract that conversation. Brothers and sisters in Islam. In sha Allah. To be continued. We'll we'll we'll talk about the second benefit we get from Salatu Fatiha, which is the real understanding of all of the aid was mentioned in Fatima. And the third benefit is having a certainty because sooner than Fatiha, like I mentioned is a form of Dawa now having certainty that Allah would answer you.
