priorities. Should Karima was a thank you for having me on your program. Salam Alaikum. Welcome. Thank you for having me on your
screen, this issue of prayer. There's a lot of discussion around in the month of Ramadan. People are praying at night and we and there's a lot of emphasis in Islam on prayer. How important is the prayer? Is it something that I have to do I can do what I want to do, what do I have to do on time? Can I do it late? it Why is it important? Where does it fall in and the five pillars of Islam? These are all questions that the viewers might have. Imagine Malik the Messenger of Allah sallallahu
when he is going through the final moments of his life, the agonist of death. You know what he said to us? This is his final will support Allah, Uppsala to Malacca a man of Salah asala to look at a man
salam and what your right hand with this process those who are under your meaning your family responsibility? sola sola Salah. Yes, imagine, right? Imagine this
Armando mahapatra de la Juan, when he was stepped,
Leading the Leading salata
and he would faint and comes back
into consciousness again. And he would always ask a solidness to the people pray did the people pray? Did the people pray? And then he made that beautiful statement. Learn how often Islam even taraka Salah someone who abandoned Salah has no share in Islam. Allah has no share in Islam. Okay. Imagine all the pillars were revealed in the book in the Quran and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu. But once it came to the Salah, because of its importance, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was called up the great point he ascended to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We know that Salah was the five daily prayers were finally legislated and prescribed on the night of the ascension because of
the importance of the Salah, imagine this medic

Welcome back to hasten to goodness you guys get online support us on Facebook, three w.facebook.com slash true TV as well as hastened to goodness over here.
creamer was a speaking about the importance of prayer. Where does it fall in, in the life of Muslim and shake Indeed, many people and I know people and I'm sure you know more, spent many times not praying many a lot a large part of our life not praying and we get phone calls all the time on our on our show here. And people say look, I spent 10 years on praying, I regret it. I began praying again regularly. And now I feel this deep regret in my heart and I want to make up for those years of praying. I mean, it seemingly impossible. I mean, 10 years of not praying. So what is your advice for somebody who left a prayer but by the grace of Allah has returned to it? Alhamdulillah wa salatu
salam ala rasulillah Mashallah La la
la sharika y shadow Allah Mohammed and Abdo Rasul. Allah subhana wa Taala says in scaletta, can tala mina keytab and makuta. The Salah is to be performed in its fixed times, the beginning and the end. Like he cannot pray before time, right? Unless you have an excuse like you're being a traveler, and you could gather or you have another library to share before it's time because you have any shot to get something like that. Yeah, I got that. We're talking about the normal course here. Okay. He cannot pray the Salah before it's time. Also, when the Salah is no longer the time is no longer there. You cannot pray it.
As long as you don't fall into Manila and salette in
that you were asleep and you slept through the time. Okay? As soon as you wake up, you pray even if the time has passed has passed and we have the famous Hadith when the Rasul Allah, Allah, Selim and Bilal, and the rest of the companions, slept through the time of pleasure until the sun rose, but also lavalas lm stood up, and he asked me to make the karma and he led the Muslims in the Salah. So, if you are asleep and the time passed, passed, or you forgot,
now the expiation for this that you make up this Salah, okay, and this is the view of the consensus or the majority of the jurists regarding this subject, okay, but you intentionally left, left the salon that I'm not going to pray, there is nothing you can do about it.
But the fact that you regretted that, that you feel bad about it, and then hamdulillah now, you do not abandon any Salah, this is a good start. Now, what you should do is do as many voluntary as possible, why Rasul Allah wa sallam told us that in a different direction, the first act of worship, of course, after he was talking about Muslims here, you see the notarization for humanity is La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Allah. Now if you fall into the rank of La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, then you have another notarisation, which is the Sala our Luma, use Allahu Allah Abdu l malkia. Matthew Minami la sala, the first act which Muslim will be asked or question regarding it in
the day for selection is a seller. If the seller is sound,
then the rest of the deeds and this is what we said that the intro the rest of the deeds will be looked at will be accepted or will be added or not. But what if it is not sound? What if it is not complete? We do have another Hadith where Allah subhana wa Taala commanding the angels to look into his voluntary to complete the mandatory so now the brothers and the sisters who did not pray for an extended duration of time 1015 sometimes 20 years we asked them to pray as many voluntary as possible now I failed big mistake that you play with each Salah one Salah you can you know you don't do that never been established. What you do is you pray as many voluntary as possible and hopefully
this will complete the missing portion of your mandatory Salah or another thing, go to Hajj guru hombre you know when you pray one salah and yeah
the word is 100,000 times in Medina 1000 in Jerusalem 500 times and in leakiness Ramadan in fact you can again either one to I'm sorry to interrupt you but I don't want to give the brothers a plan now to skip the Salah No I'm just not going to pray and all I have to do with it no
Be careful here let's not let's not play around this and if someone else is watching Ramadan now and Ramadan Okay, they miss a lot. They want to make it up now you can have a you have an opportunity now. Yes, you catch up. I will ask you tough question puts you in a corner here a little bit shaken. I'm sorry to do so. But what if someone didn't pray for 10 years or even someone didn't pray for one prayer, but he or she intentionally left
So this person, shouldn't they just make the Shahada again? And what I mean, if they intentionally leave the prayer, I mean, where does that leave them? The issue of does a person who abandon the Salah still a Muslim or not is a serious issue. Right. And it has been debated for a long time for a long time. And okay, well, I can only convey what you know, the scholars have already figured out. But I want to let the brothers and the sisters know who are not praying that your Islam is in question. They time that should be enough right there. Right? That should be enough. The fact that you fall under the view that you're no longer a Muslim because you're not praying. This is alarming.
This is alarming, right? Because the scholars or the jurists who ruled that the person who does not pray is no longer a Muslim they do have legitimate legitimate evidence evidence by now virtually verbena kufri tarraco Sala imagine hijab between a Muslim and this belief is not praying, okay?
is authentic? Can you have more of a crystal clear evidence than this tool that somebody who does not pray is not a Muslim, but here is how they do it?
You know, you ask the individual
brother, sister How come you don't pray?
You end up with two scenarios here are two types of answers. Answer number one staphylococci law I've been trying and stuff for law you know, it's just difficult I tried but it's not working. I know I should be praying This is bad. This person is a facet. That's the rule that he but here's the other scenario for you to understand that this person is a better okay in a better situation than this. Oh, man. You the second one say why should I pray? Okay, this is this is the bigger problem. This is right. This is a headache for Yeah, yeah, no. This is this relief. He's denying the command. Okay, this is danger. This is this relief? Why should I pray? They used to pray when they used to
ride camels and donkeys and mules. But here we have airplanes were more busy than then we have Google and Yahoo.
You know, this someone is out of the fold of Islam literally because he had a monkey. This one is denying the command of Allah subhanaw taala or what the scholars called jihad, okay. He is rejecting the command of Allah. But the first one is, you know, faster. But again, you know, you're in between if you're not praying, you're between being a facet, or disbelieve, right. Is that where you want to be? Give me a break, shake anything a quick phone call from brother Mustafa, Salaam Alaikum. Brother Mustafa, thank you for waiting. Go ahead, brother.
I have actually
a question about the glare.
scholars said one of the scholars said that the one who leads to prayer, even if out of being lazy or busy is to be considered a disbeliever. To have some opinion.
I'm just wondering, okay. Thank you for your phone call, I believe.
Yeah, we can answer that. But we'll we'll give brother Mustafa again. The author? Well,
we we simply was talking about that when he although
I think he was doing the advice of turning off the television.
That's why he did not hear the answer. But look at this. You know, like we said, a person is to be asked, How can you not praying? That's the way it can be. Because you need to understand that there are a lot of Muslims who yet do not know the importance of the subject.
They are unaware of this. The word unaware is more of a polite term ignorant. That's the way Yeah, and they have
they have an excuse because they are ignorant regarding the status of the Salah in Islam, and regard regarding the fact that there is text, which indicate that the person who abandons praying intentionally is no longer a Muslim. Yeah, thank you, shaker thank you for that wonderful point. Because sometimes, I find sometimes we were too hard on people a lot of people simply don't understand the status of things through so so thank you for clarifying that shape. We're gonna take a quick quick look at this report. You guys stay tuned for to hasten to goodness. We're gonna take a quick look at the report regarding the prayer and we will be right back inshallah.
Why not learn more of the Quran and read the sutras other than Surah ikhlas in every Raka jabber of the Allahu anhu reported that Mohammed Salah Salim said, the most excellent prayer is that in which the duration of standing is longer. Have you found in Bukhari?
Let's learn Surah
Surah two wealthiest man. You don't know Arabic or you can't memorize quick enough. Even a few verses a week will do the job. Find the solution. This is your prayer.
Let us enlighten you with some of the sayings Prophet Muhammad wa sallam is to say in his salat, he would open the prayer with the DA
so the hanoch Allahumma behenic whatever Okay, smoke. What? Elijah doc Walla how's Iraq? Where he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say other times as well. Allahumma barik veiny were they in a hot idea? Come about sabinal Masha.

Welcome back to hasten to goodness see Kareem I hope you enjoyed that report. Very nice, actually high definition. The brother shared some new information, new news, new applications that I had never heard before. Which begs the question, a lot of us do. Pray perhaps not properly. I think a lot of Muslims, and that's where this report falls in place. Assume that they pray properly, right? Or there's only one way to pray. For example.
Imagine this Rasool sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and how do you feel? So he was sitting in the masjid with his companions? And a man entered? And he prayed.
And then he approached the gathering as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh the prophets of Allah Allah alayhi wa sallam answered him and he said, walaikum salam, wa sallahu wa barakato go back to pray, because you have not prayed.
And this was repeated three times.
Imagine this companion right thought that he is praying certainly. Yet the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said you have not prayed. You have not played here. So the man was humble enough. The companion may Allah be pleased with him. Well, lawyers will elaborate The one who sent you the truth that's all I know Teach me Mashallah. So we answer a lot of Muslims very unfortunate. They assume that they are praying properly and in reality, they
They are just praying the way that they saw their parents praying. Right? And it's so amazing when you go to into the massage it now especially during, you know during Ramadan, Malik, a lot of people who don't normally pray they are out there in the masjid and look at the way that they pray, and, and the person would be so embarrassed out there because he sees people praying differently. And now he begins doubting the way that he's praying whether it is right or wrong. And he begins actually some of them start like looking to the side and mimicking people, right? No, we don't base our actions on assumptions. We don't we must build our actions on concrete knowledge. Yes, the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Malik commanded us by saying Solow cannot lie to Mooney or suddenly pray like you have seen me pray. It's your responsibility as a Muslim, as a Muslim, to go into the books and dig deep and find out how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam actually prayed that you're not basing your Salah on assumption because I showed that person doing that move, then I'm going to do like him. Or because I saw my father doing like this or my mother doing like this, and we just want to pray the way that they are praying. No, you pray like the messengers. prayed, and this must be on the basis of knowledge. Shake, shake Dr. Mohammed shared interesting point with me. He said back in
the states that he saw this men always pray the sooner sitting on a chair, but he would pray the forward standing up. So he said to him Monday, May Allah give you health because he thought he was sick. He said What do you mean? He said, Why are you sitting? Why are you praying sitting down? He said because my grandmother taught me always pray standing up the fourth intubate the sooner sitting down upon Allah he didn't know that right? Yeah, his knowledge, lack of knowledge. But again, we want to say that I don't know if your point is complete or not complete. Yeah. in general. So the Salah standing up, you know, standing up is a pillar of demand that only Salah Yes. So a person can
volunteer who is volunteering can sit down and his Salah still accepted. Okay, so we don't want to confuse the two eyes, but a person who who prays sitting down without an execuse loses half of the world Okay, okay, so we need to be careful, still valid, it's still valid. Salah is valid. Rasul Allah has allowed us to pray the nephila while he's on his
mule, and camel and so forth. So if we have a phone call brother, my brother, Salam Alaikum, welcome to the program.
My concern is
the head with a good answer your question asker question.
And I want to know what to do regarding Braille during because you said you're traveling in these days, is that right brother?
Okay, okay. And so you want to know how to handle the prayers right now?
before you answer the brothers question. You mentioned a point before the episode, the man that prophets have sent me sent him back three times. True, right. But they It was beautiful, though. The point that that was was making that this man so that he's praying, right? Right. That's a lot of Muslims are like that, right? I like this man.
But now, you know, they need to learn how to pray. But his response was beautiful. Also, he said, that's just all I know. Can you help me? Yes, that's the attitude that we all should have. You see that the point that we're trying to make that don't base your Salah on assumptions, okay? Or because you saw that person praying right? You know, based on Hadith holla Casasola, okay, this is a beautiful booklet, you know, salatu salam, the prophets Allah, Allah, Allah, you know,
just all the series that chief Saleh add on this on this channel, on this channel is is very beneficial. I mean, find a way you know, find a way that you you're praying the messenger way, okay?
That you're not gonna change your position because you saw somebody doing that. And this is what you see, you know, you're, you're witnessing in the masjid, especially in Ramadan. Like, I go ahead and pray and somebody standing next to me, he doesn't know how to pray. Now. He sees me, you know, look like a beard. Like this guy. Yeah, this guy looks like he's learned person. So he looks at me, I can tell that he's looking at me. What if I don't know what I'm doing? Right, of course, that I look like a lone person. But in reality, you know, which, you know? I don't know, right? No, you can do that. You cannot do that. You need to learn how to pray from legitimate sources. Okay.
Not from people they meet by accident or not from random people, random people like I you know, I'll never forget this this brother I think this is a an example you know
it wasn't the United States you know the he would stand up and he would put his hand down you know like this straight on his side straight on his side instead of you know, crossing his hands on his chest on his chest like this. So, you know, we know that certain people in West Africa Morocco they follow they assume that Lima Malik prayed like this and they assume that he you know, this is the way to pray Okay, so I you know, I approached him and I said you know, we do have enough evidence to establish that of us also allow us to hold his left with his right on the chest you know what he told me Are you better than my tribe you know, all my tribe in Africa Ray like this are you better
than my tribe? So imagine imagine Of course for me I wouldn't take this as you know, I'm My job is to you know, try to acid the Messenger of Allah is better than me and your tribe.
This is how we pay
that's funny, but it's true though. I guess the meaning for me to say is I guess we should be kind with each other and and say okay, let's talk about the evidences are open the delay like that I see one way is right or wrong. Okay. Brother must have makuta I believe was traveling. So what is traveling Ramadan isn't?
It should be handled as if you're traveling anytime, right? You would simply combine the prayers. Yeah, well, a traveler has a license to shorten. This is number one, the Salah, meaning the for Salah four units right to be shortened to the final he ends up shortening the harasser and Ayesha fetcher and another tip after we combine three no to be prayed and full two lockers and three Raka now he also has a license to combine to combine water and acid at the time of lower all the time of acid Okay, Matthew Anisha at the time of Russia or at the time of Maverick he has the choice What about the pm at night and all this I mean, he's gonna miss out on he can still do it. It's up to
him. It's up to him. But unrestricted volunteering is the ideal when you're traveling. Okay, okay. You know what in Ramadan if you don't want to miss the PM? That's fine. You know, you can you can pray it while you're on the airplane or in the car can find a when the bus just right, right. Okay. Wonderful points. We're going to take a quick look at another report shake. Sure. And Shall we We'll be right back you guys stay tuned to hasten to goodness and to take a look at this report. And we'll be right back.
I get so many calls and so many messages saying gosh man, my wife my daughter, my situation
I'm in such a terrible sight. What do I do? You know the first question I asked
majority of time they say to me
sometimes I miss some sometimes I make them up sometimes it's the majority of times you find most people are not praying the five daily prayers are on time.
How do we expect almost pinata Allah to help us if we're not helping ourselves? How can you turn to a life you're not praying?
How can you lift your hands it's Allah give me my sins. If you're not at least praying.
We need to understand once you believe in Allah and His Messenger The first thing after that you have to make sure you do is pray your five daily prayers.
It was unheard of of the Sahaba that any of them didn't pray.
The hypocrites were praying.
Now we have people who honestly believe
in Allah and His Messenger
I don't need to pray because Allah is in my heart. How is in your heart and you don't pray?
How is Allah subhana wa tada in your heart and you don't pray?
If I was in your heart, you did everything that Allah subhanaw taala wants you to do.
Salaam Alaikum Welcome back to hasten to goodness sake cream. That report was lovely. I really liked it. There was a couple points I want to mention and speak with you about in that report. First of all, he said it was unheard of in the dangers of smoking.
The rule of thumb the nobody prayed even the hypocrites prayed number one, rule number two he said people say a lot in my heart but he said if the laws in your heart yeah then you will do the things that Allah has commanded. So that's the similar statement. My heart is wide. Yeah number 30. Yeah, I think every culture they came up with like that this is the you know, the the, the the ideology of Malaysia. That nephew llama Lena gave the actions from Islam from the man. Okay, they see a man that you believe in your heart holla it's finished. That's enough. You affirm by your heart that Allah exists that are angels. Salalah No, no, you know, right. I mean, I'll never forget I you know, it's
a little bit funny, but I never forget this. I was in Washington DC at one stage and I was leading solid eight.
So, you know, there is that variation of opinion, the difference of opinion regarding the number of technological aid Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, between the Nef and the rest of the Judas.
So, you know, I did the seven and five so I think he was used to 11 and other languages. Yeah, so he came to me after the Salah, and he said, I complain
I complain due to a loss of health.
Why what happened brother Ain't nobody you know what they say? You messed up the only Salah I pray
I mean, and he's somebody who doesn't pray he only plays under their feet right right. There are Muslims like that. Allah is in my heart to my heart is white and I don't do any trouble but la Habibi Salah is Salah is
Salah is no question. I want to let the brothers know you have no choice. You have no choice. You're deceiving yourself if you think that you can receive salvation while you're not praying. Okay? Yeah. Some people say shake and it's related to this idea of laws in my heart. They say Rasulullah semi said
check your heart if you have something in your life a decision
regarding refer to your heart and whenever your heart leads you to go for it. But then the above this is it doesn't matter if it is a sound heart. Yeah, that's because your heart can be corrupt.
We need to understand was talking about this stuff to call back? Yes, yes. If the heart is still sound, right, but the heart is already deciding okay? Because also Allah said that the heart can be sealed, right? You understand? Right? So the heart must be sound. This is the heart which will give you the right set. Okay, right. That is like you go to a corrupt corrupt scholar and he'll give you a copy and He will give you a corrupt answer. Like why is your heart if your heart is corrupt, right it's not and then the straight path is not missus for most meaningful believer. Yes. Okay. Yes.
People look at people that misperceive the kind of look at it like a daily chore. Something I don't want to do like, oh, man, it's it's 1230 How to praise overdue you know what I mean? It's three o'clock, I have to be honest. I think we should change our understanding of the, the connection with Allah that was not the attitude of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he used to say, let let us find comfort in Salah. Look forward to it. Yeah. Let's find a relaxation, relaxation, tranquility because literally when you stand in Salah, you're standing in front of Allah subhanaw taala and that's why Allah Subhana dialysis wakulla carnitine stand in front of Allah Subhana Allah in a state of truth
that you look down, but you know into the place where you prostrating and and some halala you know, we every single day we have so many conversations with different people. But the most important conversation which we have with Allah subhanaw taala 17 times a day mandatory that you actually talk to Allah subhanaw taala you actually talk to Allah, that, that is why By the way, the Salah is the connection with Allah Subhana writer. Imagine this when a person stands in for Allah Allahu Akbar, and after the ride is after, and then he begins reciting sort of in Fatiha, which is a pillar of each unit that you must recite. Of course, if you're playing behind any man, that's another issue
that we can discuss later, but when you say Alhamdulillah
I mean, imagine this, Allah will say hamadani Abdi upon Allah. You know, when you say All praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of all that exists, Allah will say, My servant, praise me, Allah.
Allah will say Ethnology Abdi, my servant has exalted me,
Maliki Amit de master of the Dave king of the absolute ruler, the absolute judge in the Day of Judgment. Allah subhanaw taala will say magetta niyati. My servant has
glorified, magnified me,
in the nose yaka Naboo, Coniston, you alone, I worship, I want to do a job, I just want to worship you. You know, having monotheism is is a challenge, but I really want to do this Europe and I cannot do it if you don't help me, right? If you don't support me, look what Allah says there licchavi ouabain Abdi Ali Abdullah said, I know what my servant is asking for, and I will give it to him. So imagine that Imagine if he didn't
muster the guidance to the straight path. And then Allah Subhana Allah will say, likewise, this request is between me and my servant.
And I know what my servant is asking for and I will give it to him. For imagine that conversation Imagine you're standing in front of Allah subhanaw taala that is what I was also told us when you're standing in Salah Allah looks at you
when you stand in Salah Ally's face is looking at you. That's why you're not supposed to look around. You're supposed to look at imagine the closest acaba Maya Kunal abdulah
the closest a person can be when he's frustrating, you know, sometimes we see a lot of the brothers would they want to make dua they would be sitting down and then he would prostrate to make dua. Why would you do this? Is this correct? That's a bit odd. That's inefficient. You're not supposed to do that. But imagine in the Salah, while Why do you? Why Why didn't you Why didn't you talk to Allah while you're in the prostration? But what you're doing it outside the salons and that is a misunderstanding. No. The sujood in the salon archroma, Kunal Abdullah says it feels solid, in the solid that you prostrating to Allah subhanaw taala. And imagine you're asking Allah for things help
me, support me and complain to Allah subhanaw taala about what you're going through in a school bus, he was Niala it's a connection, it's a relief. That's why they would not abandon it, they would not look at it as a burden. And I challenge voila, HumanIK I challenge the brothers and the sisters who are unafraid, and who still look at the salon to be a burden. Just boot yourself into a training program, that the next three months, just three months, some scholars, some students of knowledge will say six months, no, I tell you, just three months, that I'm not going to abandon any Salah. And I will do whatever it takes to play the slot on time. I'm telling you, after the three month, you're
gonna win the time the solids, you're gonna start you're gonna find yourself standing up like this, you're gonna feel there's something funny, right? Right, your, your body, your your, your, your, your, your soul needs, it needs it. So automatically, your soul requested when the time to praise here, and you may be busy with other things, your soul is gonna come on, let's go pray you're gonna feel guilty about you're gonna find yourself praying, you're gonna wake up for a long time, you're gonna abandon your best soap opera and your best TV show, to go and play a share in the machine. Just get yourself first forced to do it for 3456 months. And then it becomes a habit. Well, it
shouldn't be a habit, it will become part of you is part of your system, but it should not be. Okay. Now, we spoke about depression in a previous episode. And this has nothing to be little because it's a serious condition. And many people go to therapists and medical practitioners and take medicine for this and we're not belittling that.
