Hello raha Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen
or salat wa salam O Allah Shafi Lambie
Ali Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam does leave and can see
he called them his special slaves. We have been talking about the importance of the heat and the importance therefore of the high job as our connection with Allah subhanaw taala the ideal time the most beautiful time to establish our connection with Allah Serrano dolla dolla dolla who is that special time when there is no one standing between you and you rub or disturbance, there is no interruption and the slave is able to stand before is Rob Jalla Jalla Lu with complete concentration and with total focus.
Many of you who have May Allah bless you who have been
listening to my
to all these these two stories of Hassan vasila Huntelaar concerning the hatches which I have mentioned many times these are two of my favorite stories in Allah subhanho wa Taala. One of the draws I make is that I should meet Hassan al Bashir hasta la la
in Janda insha Allah asked Allah subhanaw taala to grant me that there are some people who are so beautiful that you really want to meet them. And you know, say Salaam to them sit in their company, and hustle and bustle and hustle is definitely one of them. So how do
these two stories or silvassa both relate relating to the one is that Hassan was standing on his musala he's about to begin his Salah.
He's about to begin his tahajjud but before he you know, he makes the military man before he starts his lab. He's talking to rob Delgado. He said Oh Allah, the whole world is sleeping, who are awake you on your ash and me here on the first on my masala
everyone just does just think about is this is the thing which I
I beg Allah subhanaw taala to grant me and I keep mentioning this again and again. That this is what we need to develop we need to develop this perfect connection with our rock jelajah laloux. Without any formality without anyone intervening without anything in between it is just the rub and the abs. This is what Islam came for Islam did not come to that person and this thing and that thing Allah subhanaw taala said oh the only us who asked me I will give you Allah did not ask me through this one or that one who asked this one to ask me no hamdulillah if you are about the best, why is the drug that the slave makes for himself? Because that is the connection, direct connection between the
slave and is created his robe between the abdomen. Now how do I say that? What am I going to say this is the reservoir? This is from the Sunnah of Rasulullah assassin, a man came to his house and he pointed to his chest. And he said Dr. Zola, I have a pen here. Please make dua for me. What did the relational model to
place your right hand on the place where there is the pain and ask Allah subhanaw taala make this work?
Allah has taught him
to make for the relief of pain
out of the minutiae. Reema ijebu,
say Bismillah, three times Bismillah Bismillah, Bismillah. And then and with Bismillah, three times again, that's it. Now think about this, the man who came through so seldom
what would he have liked?
If you put yourself in that situation? Put yourself in that situation that 100 Allah Allah has given you this opportunity to talk
with Rasulullah saw Salaam you go to him and you say Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, I have a
please make dua for me. What is it that you would have loved our I would have loved is for a solo solo salon to place his blessed hand on my chest and to make dua to Allah. This is what I would have loved.
What did he do? He didn't do that. He told the man Place your own hand Place your hand he's It doesn't mean that he's had the man's hand is superior to the hand officers know
And of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is the hand of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his Deen. He's teaching us our Deen and what is our Deen our Deen is only a study of local our Deen is asked me and I will give you
palate Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said this
is teaching him that and that is why I'm saying that the best wife or whoever young children ask them to make a photo hamdulillah young children especially they are from sin, and inshallah they advise accepted, but the best is, and for that we have to establish a connection with Allah subhanaw taala. And the time to do that is
a brother and sisters. As I've said many times before, you know we have the, for the for the lack of a little cuddle, that we all know the fuzzy little little color we know the beauty and the grace and the majesty of this beautiful nights. 10 days of Ramadan Kareem We ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to to attain this to get this.
And we ask Allah to accept our draws made on NATO to color.
But remember, that every single night,
every single night throughout the year, Allah subhanaw taala descends on to the first heaven in a manner which suits His Majesty and grace. And the same thing happens, what Allah subhanaw taala announces and an announcer announces on the beach on behalf of us raw data say, Who is there who needs anything from his rubber? let him ask who is there who needs the protection of Israel, let him see protection.
And at that time, we want to be sleepy.
nobody's nslm said the Allah loves that man who wakes up for the Hajj and wakes up his wife. And he said Allah loves that woman who wakes up for the Hajj and wakes up her. Right?
See the importance of this
of this particular Ambassador at that particular time. So as he stands there, and this is the connection of the abdomen, he's speaking to his robe before he formally enters a state of Salah.
The second lovely story of celibacy is one day he was praying in his house alone by himself, and he heard a sound in the house as if an intruder had entered.
Now tell me, what would you do? What would you do? What would I do? I would immediately break my salah and I would deal with the intruder, I would you know, fire, figure out what's going on Who's there? and so on and so forth. And maybe you would have done the same thing. Not as
he is with his robe. It's so happens that he hears the sound of an intruder in the house but doesn't matter. He will know what he's standing. He was reciting Quran, he's
When he finishes his Salah, he sees the vitals running around just to him What kind of a man are you?
He says, I am a thief. He says I am a thief. And I came to get something from you from this house. And there is nothing he says you have nothing there is nothing in his house which is worth taking.
So I actually you know I wanted to wait and ask you What kind of a man are you how do you live like this, that there is nothing in your house which is worth stealing nothing in your house which is worth taking.
How do you live like this?
So as embassy says to the man, I have something to give you. There is something in this house which is worth taking go make do and camino de voto Muslim.
Go make some
sort of thought well, you know I'm getting nothing this van is eccentric and he wants me to be or whatever.
So the theme is almost the opposite. where he's praying tattooed next to her son or mercy.
Say the tambourine is called one of his one of his outcomes.
A man who studied from Southern I live in Italia Milan.
Imagine what kind of recitation of Quran you must have. I'm not talking about the law not talking about the tune.
I'm talking about the caveats. I'm talking about the power of
the recitation of someone where the Quran resides in his heart.
Not just somebody who understands the Quran or who understands Arabic language. No, I'm talking about somebody who the reality of the Kalam is in his heart.
Imagine those who prayed
so hard like there is something for which we need to envy this habit and there are many things
behind sort of some seller that they heard the recitation of the Quran
we sold the body.
Mamma mia de la
mer Abu Talib
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa he was
the person who received this color what must be his restitutionary
so this team now is standing next to Hassan basirhat lalla. Salma sera Talal in second Cora
when they finish their turaga of Salah, the thief wept. He had tears in his eyes just wrote down his cheeks.
And he said to ourselves, truly you have given me something today. He said, Truly, I have never got so much wealth as I got in your house.
He said I make Toba.
And he said, I promise you that I'm leaving this work. I will not steal anymore.
I will not steal
this is the wealth I got. I got the wealth of Hidayat I got the wealth of rights, right of guidance to the path of righteousness from all the Haram that I was doing which was stealing.
Other than just this the hedgehog is so
beautiful. It is so amazing.
Allah subhanaw taala della della, who
he told us
Akemi salata, Lizzy, Cree, Allah said establish Salah for my Zika
what is the purpose of Salah, the vicar of Allah Subhana Allah and that is why sometimes when we are harmful when we are thoughtless, when we are that somebody claims to be in remembrance of Allah
and simultaneously the person is forgetful about
me How is it possible?
Is it possible for us to remember and forget simultaneously?
So obviously if I am forgetful at that time, there is no reverence Allah.
So if there is no remembrance of Allah, he might ask you, sir,
I'm not going into the back of the issue. And I'm not telling you that you should repeat your Salah or makes sense or something. No.
I'm saying he's asked this question. Is my Salah still Salah when I am no longer concerned with Allah in that Salah. When I am no longer focused on Allah subhanho wa
Taala Salam says that when the slave loses concentration, when the slave starts thinking
and more magnetic,
then me and my thoughts and my my remembers
what is it in your life? Which is better than your objectives?
What is it in your life that is more important than your jealousy
and ambition as Adam says, when the slave returns to Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning that the thought wanders, would you catch yourself to come back and say well, please forgive me. And we continue Alhamdulillah the Salah continues, but then when Miss thought wanders again Allah subhanaw taala again called her This is what is it?
What is better than me? What is more beautiful than I am what is more powerful than I am what is more important than I am?
Where are you going?
and services again, when the slave comes back hamdulillah calls out twice, three times.
As many times as he wishes and then Allah lets him go and then we shall have said that is like a camel was broken. It's teta
and tether and is a wandering is gone somewhere we don't always you know.
Nevertheless, sisters seriously, let us focus on the quality of our sir
Please understand, as I've said in the in the
in the lesson on living Islam, Allah subhanaw taala will weigh the deeds to wit, the worth the value.
Allah will not count.
You know how many times you've created you know,
the weight and the value of it. So let us focus and concentrate on improving the quality of our Salah.
This is the
effect in our life and in the lives of others. It's not simply a mechanical exercise to be finished off somehow, you know, get rid of the burden, take the take the load and dump it somewhere and go we know
it's not a, it's not something that we,
we deal with carelessly, while thinking of everything on the in the universe, except the one that we are standing in front of. I'm standing in front of Allah, Allahu Akbar, I said, Allah is the Greatest, and then my thought is somewhere else, meaning that I am now denying the statement that I made, because if Allah is the Greatest, then by definition, everything else is less than that. Then why am I focused on something which is less when I'm standing in front of the one who is the greatest.
And this is what we have to my brothers, sisters, we have to remind ourselves and we have to keep on correcting ourselves, because
it is our time and personal space with Allah to carry on with our Creator, and our sustainer. Allah will consume the living and the established, who has suffered his free from all need, and how you live the lie mode, the one who is living and who will not die alone, well, what was the hell while battling the first and the last, the manifest and the hidden are rasa who will who will kill Mateen, the Sustainer and the maintainer of everyone and everything who sustains with his power, the one who introduced himself to us in the Quran, in so many places, in so many beautiful and majestic ways, which suit his majesty and grace, my brothers sisters, Salah is our connection with Allah subhanaw
taala we need to examine its quality and improve it as we as we need to do with our is my is my Wi Fi working or not? Is that Wi Fi? What is the strength of our Wi Fi? Is this internet service provider giving me the is it giving me 3g 2g one g? No g 5g. Yeah, G. Now g one. What does it mean really think about this and say that we are focused with all of this. But when it comes to the connection with the loss of
connection there potentially, there cannot be any outage to that connection, a connection that is as strong as you want it to be a connection where you can connect no matter where you are sitting or standing, in the middle of a forest, in the middle of the ocean, in your house, in your Masjid, in the Kaaba, wherever you are, you can connect with a loss of Hanover and the converse is equally true. Wherever you are, you can get disconnected from one another. Just because you need not be you can be around and your focus and your mind can be wandering somewhere else. May Allah protect us from ourselves. But this is something that we have to work on like we work on with all our
connections, we have to improve it we have to examine its quality. And we have to be because otherwise we do not get a response. My brother says just Allah subhanaw taala responded to his navy and those who prayed and he said I will let him initiate on Raji rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in Arabic Allah Mohan Nakata como
su se li li Wen is who was also at or if

Hi, Santa. What am I Ducati Malian. boosey comin hiring as you are in the law you
must ofuro law in LA for
the last episode Muzammil Allah subhanaw taala said Verily, your rub knows that you do stand to pray at night. So imagine who is the witness for the Salah of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala himself, who is the witness for the Salah of the Sahaba is one the Hayley mcgrain Allah Subhana Allah Himself
Brothers and sisters,
if you make effort,
you get it.
No karate will not come for you and know that you do stand to pray a little less than two thirds of the night of the night or a third of the night and so do a party of those with you.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala measures the night and the day. He knows that you are unable to pray the whole night which means the ideal is what pray the whole night.
He knows that you are unable to pray the whole nights to hear stern to you in mercy.
So recite the Quran as much as maybe easy for you. He knows
that there will be some women who are sick, others who are traveling through the land seeking Allah subhanaw taala as bounty, yet others fighting in the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So reside as much of the Quran as maybe easy for you. Now imagine, Allah is not saying if you are sick, or if you are traveling, you don't have to put it on
Allah saying Bray
The only consideration is instead of bringing the whole light brainless,
and it makes eminent sense. The point is that if I'm in a difficult situation, do I need the help of Allah more or less? So if I need the help more, why would I disconnect?
So you say well, you know I'm traveling Yeah, of course you're traveling. So when you're traveling, you need a lot more than when you are at home, in your own environment with all your with all your resources, everything with you.
It's not as if you need the help of Allah less but the point is that at least you are in on familiar in familiar territory. Whereas when you are traveling, you're not intimidated.
Allah subhanaw taala saying, pray, even then you pray and then allows Raja Zen to reside as much of the Quran as maybe easy for you and establish a salah and gives a god and lend to Allah. Harun hacer una hora Sana. Now, remember, Khurana Cortana is mentioned after paying of Zakat, which is what religion which doesn't just enjoin charity, Allah has made charity farther It is part of our aqeedah it is part of the our canon of Islam It is part of the pillars of Islam. And in addition to to the to the for charity, which is a God, Allah subhanaw taala told us to do even more. So all I say is that as much of the Quran as may be easy for you establish a kamati Salah establish Allah gives a
card and lend to Allah a goodly law and whatever good you send before you for yourself which is all manner of good deeds and charity and so on. You will certainly find it with Allah better and greater in reward.
So when you give some charity, Allah will not return that amount you Allah will give you in addition to that, Allah will give you in keeping with his grace and majesty
and seek forgiveness of on hand most merciful. My brothers and sisters truly those who taste the pleasure of tahajjud once they do not need any convincing
and hamdulillah we have had this situation many times when when we do our Elysee the leadership excellence course It begins with the huddle. It begins with the huddle in whichever country whatever time it is, it begins with terracotta tahajjud by Gemma and of course as much as you want to pray, and we have had cases I remember one case in Malaysia, where one of the brothers he was 72 or 73. He came and he was actually escorting his daughter who was
was a participant in the course and she did not have a mom so the father came along and the father prayed had you the first time and then he came and said to me this is a fun exercise and I wanted to say it was beautifully said is absolutely beautiful. And inshallah I will never stop bringing it until I die. He said I will I will never miss it. Smaller this is the this is the value of of promoting or doing something good people then for them it becomes a life changing thing. And without hamdulillah Angela Angela Allah subhanaw taala used you or me to be the means for this person to get this beautiful gift, which is the connection with Allah Subhana Allah says I recommend I recommend
and please start praying to have you pray that will make it further yourself. Let not a single day pass when you have not prayed at least two rakaat of time
to pray every day and inshallah if you have the ability you can do that but at least to
that you do not get a single day does not pass when you have not prayed to God, irrespective whether you are traveling, whether you are home, whatever it is, even if you are sick, may Allah protect, it doesn't matter if you're sick they want to cure you is the one that you are addressing. So what's the problem with that? Right? If you are sick, and somebody says, The doctor is here to meet you is no, no, I don't have the time. You're sick, you need the doctor.
So even if you are sleeping as a doctor's here, you should know wake him up. Let the doctor see him first. Right? He can go back to sleep later.
Don't they do that? Or do they tell the doctor come back again?
Doctors, not the doctor, the doctor is up there.
The cure is from Allah subhanaw taala. So even if you are sick, especially if you are sick, get up and put period of time.
Unless there is, you know, physically incapable May Allah protect you from that. So very, very important members and sisters, the people who know the sweetness of talking to their rub in the stillness of the night, when only he is awake to listen to them. They don't need they don't need any encouragement, to pray,
to ask the one whose treasures and every action that has the potential to affect us and to return to and make Toba
before the only one who has the power to forgive us. Please I don't have to say this, you know this and I know this and Islam, we accept that sins are forgiven only by Allah. We do not have make a confession to the priest. We don't tell the priests to prescribe for us, you know, some wazifa or something to recite in order to seek forgiveness. There is only one thing we need to do to get the forgiveness of Allah and that is rascal. So we ask Allah and we ask Allah to forgive us. And hamdulillah insha Allah Allah subhanaw taala forgives us because this is what he promised to do.
So seek this forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala. Salah is the proof that one has entered Islam. It is the physical manifestation is worthy of worship except Allah. When I say I shall a la ilaha illa Allah I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah. Wa shawanna Mohammed Rasul Allah, and I bear witness that there is that Mohammed Salah Salem is the Messenger of Allah, and I bear witness that I am his follower, and I bear witness that he's the last and final of the messengers of Allah, after whom there is no other messenger, when I'm seeing that in my Salah. I am proving that, that I worship only Allah and how do I prove hamadryas Allah because I worship Allah
in the way that was taught to me by Mohammed Salah Harrison. So La ilaha illa Allah is the establishment of the Salah itself is La ilaha illa Allah and Mohammed Rasul Allah is the entire method of Salah, which starts with the beard the horiba and end with salam, how Allah shadow Allah Allah illallah wa shawanna Muhammadan rasul Allah, the manifestation, the proof the evidence of this is Salah,
my brothers and sisters,
we have to understand that if somebody says La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, and then does not pray, then by not praying, the person has negative has negated his statement of La ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, there is no evidence there is no proof. When the person says there is no one worthy of worship, except Allah. And when the time for worship comes, when the time comes to pray, the person does not pray, then what is the person doing? The person is showing that yes, I have said, There is no one worthy of worship except Allah. But I don't really believe that because I
worship the very fact that you are not worshiping Allah is denial of your own statement. That statement gets you into Islam. And that denial, you decide what that does to your Islam. My brothers and sisters, the Salah is the and that is why rasulillah salam said, Allah has the banana verbena home masala, Furman
Kapha. Elisa, Sam ritualism said the I had the covenant the line the divider, the differentiator between us and them, who is us, the Muslims, the omoto, Mohammed Salah, the Sahaba
and who is them, those who are not the
who are not Muslim, everybody is the motto Mr. Salah.
But we're talking about the kamadeva which is the people who are not Muslim. Now, the differentiator between us and them is Salah,
the one who has left the Salah, removed himself from Islam, nevertheless still Why do we think about that is this what we are? Is this what we should do?
Remember, no matter who you are, right no matter whether you are a king or whether you are a Papa, no matter how powerful you think you are, I know many people who just because they have you know, some political power or they are
some do some government official or something or just because they have money, right? They think they are so powerful, just because there are a few people kowtowing to them and bending and buying and scraping before them, they think they are that they are those they are so powerful. Remember, nobody is more powerful than multiple modes. Nobody is more powerful than molecule mode.
molecule not will come for you. molecule mode will come for me.
And that is when we will realize all those security guards you're surrounded with will not stop Malibu, Masaya de la Santa Rosa great fortresses. Those fortresses will not stop by local modes. When the time to go arrives, multiple modes will come and he will take us
and at that time, what you had in this world who you were in this world, your great title, your great status, your great position, your great authority will have absolutely no meaning whatsoever.
The only thing which will have meaning is whether or not you worshipped Allah subhanho wa Taala
my Yabba dairy VEDA Islami dienen Vallejo Kabbalah Amina was
the one who comes to on the Day of Judgment with anything other than Islam as his or her Deen. This will not be accepted from them. And on the Day of Judgment, they will be among the losers. Number six is Allah subhanaw taala blessed us Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us this
beautiful Deen and Allah gave us this Deen for us to practice it for us to live by it. Allah did not give us this Deen for us to ignore it. Allah did not give us this Deen for us to talk about is for us to teach it and learn it but not to live it's not to practice No.
brothers sisters, please understand this.
The question that we will be asked you're talking about the talaq with Allah we're talking about the connection with Allah. The first question that we will be asked when we go into our village is what
everybody knows. What is it? Man Rob book, man rabuka?
Who is your?
Who is your ramp?
This question man rabuka
Is it a question seeking information about Allah? Or is it a question seeking information about your and might look with Allah? You are in my connection with Allah? What is
a Chateau La ilaha illa Allah? Is it a statement which is giving information about Allah? Or is it a statement which is a declaration of light our look with Allah my connection with Allah?
Muhammad Rasul Allah, is it a statement that is giving information about who Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was? Or is it a statement which is talking about my connection with Muhammad Sallallahu
my brothers and sisters this Deen is the name of a connection. This Deen is the name of our relationship.
When we enter into
when we enter into Islam, we are entering into that revision.
And when we maintain that relationship, we maintain it through salah
and that is the question when we go to the to the animal burrow into our cupboard. That is the first question which is asked what is your relationship?
Because based on that question, the Malaika will decide what you are what is to be done with you.
Those who have a relationship it's like you know when you land in the United States for example, like in the airport, there is a line which says US citizens
and then there is a line and this is true in in you know practically every car
Do you have a you have a separate line for citizens of the country, and then you have a separate line for people who are not citizens of the country.
So if you are a citizen, you know things that are not a citizen of the country then there is more questioning and so on and so forth. Who are you? Where did you come from? What not what not.
So they are asking, do you have a connection with Allah?
Then Is there a be Allah? My Arab is Allah
But if that is not the answer,
if I did not worship Allah subhanaw taala How will I be able to say I'll be Allah because remember, on that time, at that time in that place, it's not what you have mugged up in your head, the actual
action will speak
by myself and you, this is time to wake up. This is time to reflect. This is time to straighten ourselves and to repair this connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. To strengthen this connection with Allah subhana wa, T, every second it is one second closer to that time. ask Allah to make that the best day of our lives, to make that moment the best moment of our lives to make that meeting the best meeting of our lives. Was Allah Allah Allah, Allah will Karim Allah Allah He was savage mine with
me. Well hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah you
