it is a statement of fact but it's not a statement of information for a muslim this is a statement of a relationship
this is a statement of our look if we do not have that dialogue and if this statement is only a statement of
a statement of information then we have lost the plot somewhere and we need to get it back
remember think about this when we go into our grave what is the first question that is asked the first question that is asked is mandra book who is your rump the question is not omar abu alameen amen robert i mean the question is not who is the creator and the sustainer and the material or the protector of the universe who is the rub of the worlds that's not the question who is your rub who is my rub it's a statement of connection a statement of my dialogue and that is why the answer to that is rugby allah
rugby alumni rugby is alive right so therefore when we when we say the statement shadow allah allah allah allah allah muhammad rasul allah let us ask ourselves what is the evidence that this statement is true for me it is true by itself because we know the record is true that allah subhanaw taala is our job and is the is the only one worthy of worship we know this is true that does not require someone to reiterate that or someone to emphasize that we know that is correct and we know it is true question is
is it true for me do i live my life as if it is true in my life now what is the evidence of that
the evidence of that is
solid the first day is to believe in my heart shall i love our children our mothers would love to say it with my tongue and toe
live by it through our Java through our senses and through our faculties and through our limbs. To practice this and to show that we believe this. Now what is this showing that we believe how do we show how do I show that I believe in Allah Allah Allah Allah will show the Navajo mothers Allah by establishing Salah
Allah subhanho data set in sort of the nor will okay mo salata wa to sakata were RT or su La, la I log on, or hameau which means Allah said and established Allah and gives a guard and obey the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that you may receive mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala I remind myself and you that this is not a Allah is not
giving us the choice, you know, do it if you can do it. And if you can't do it, well, you know, that's too bad. He's not saying that. Allah Subhana Allah is giving us specific,
a very specific and clear instruction and that's what I'm saying. This is what you must do. That you must establish Salah you must pay zakat and you must obey Rasul Allah sallallahu Sallam
link let's look at Salah now first
link Salah back to the kalama how's that link? Allah subhanho wa Taala said okay masala what Aki masala and establish a solid.
How is it with what is the meaning of Salah
the linguistic meaning of Salah is da so if I simply say well you know Allah subhanaw taala so I'm going to make Tao Allah This is this. Is it enough? Is that does that amount to Salah as intended by Allah subhanaw taala How do we know what Allah subhanaw taala intended? Did Allah Subhana Allah the Salah that we do for example we pray we just pray finished praying Madlib
the three rakata memory isn't mentioned anywhere in the Quran that in memory we must pray to God not for not to
the methodology of Salah that it must start with Tabitha horiba we must raise our hands and reverse recite after their Santa. And then it was decided so Fatiha and without Fatiha there is no salah and after if it was decided some part of the Quran and in that part of the Quran, what is it? What is the best way of reciting?
Right? And then after that Roku and in Roku, how do you how do I go into Roku? How do I come out of Roku? In Roku What must I do then after Roku is so good Roku is one to do this to supposing I said oh no I love Allah so much to Salah is not enough I want to do 10 is my Salah still valid or not valid? Even though my intention is so nice.
Where do we get all this information from?
We get it from Muhammad Rasul Allah is analyzer. So link it to us also to link it back to the caliber
Allah said Aki masala and I stand up and say la Vega la mala back yes Allah I am ready. I'm here I'm present. And I'm ready to over you. Sorry, I know.
How is it?
That is the second part of the karma wash. Muhammad Rasul Allah. I just said that Hamas or Salah Mr. Rasul of Allah. Again, it's not a Statement of Information. It's a statement of connection. It's a so what question to ask is, so what shall I bear witness the Moses Elam is the Messenger of Allah, so what so I obey Him? So I follow him. So I imitate him emulate him.
This is the this is the meaning this is what we must
remember and this is what we must
think about and this is what we must do.
So the Salah is the
physical manifestation of the kalama which is the belief
And that is the reason why it was all about Salah mutualism said
I had a lady by Nana or buying a home a Salah from an arada ha forgot Guevara. Oh kumbhakarna Lisa to salami said the I had the covenant, the agreement, the promise, the dividing line, the differentiators between them and us who is them. People who are not Muslim.
non Muslim for Muslims is the Salah
Amman arada, the one who ignores it, the one who denies it, the one who refuses to do it the one who does not pray to God Guevara, truly that person has
denied Allah subhanho wa Taala. He has committed COVID
ezhava. We're all agreed upon this,
that somebody who denies Salah has committed copper has left Islam.
Among the scholars, there is a difference of opinion of what constitutes denial whether it's necessary to say that in so many words, or whether just not praying is denial enough because by your action, you are showing that you do not pray that you do not think it is important that you don't need to pray or is it also necessary to also say that is only worse? There is a difference of opinion between between the scholars, but nobody's disagreed upon this, but everyone or other everyone is agreed upon it, that whatever be the difference or whatever constitutes denial. If that is there, then the person has left Islam. This is how important Salah is.
It's a it's a proof of our Eman
so fundamentals of Islam. One is the Karima The second one is Salah. Now how is it to be prayed? And that's why I said this is this is where
we come to the we come to the the
sunako says there's a beautiful Hadees in Bukhari and Muslim narrated by Malik bin Wade is Alonzo
who at the time was a young boy he said we came to Rasulullah saw Salaam and stayed with him for 20 days and nights. And these were boys from different tribes from near and far from all around the dinner. He said we came to rossano Solomon stayed with him for 20 days and nights. How fortunate were these boys that they got this time to spend with with us exclusively. They stayed with him they watched him.
He did their tarbiyah he taught them they ate with him right food from his houses. So he said we came to resources element stayed with him for 20 days and nights we were all young and have about the same age.
as Adam was very kind and merciful. When he realized our longing for our families. He asked about our homes and the people there and we told him then he asked us to go back to our families and stay with them and teach them the religion. And he told us to reward and order them to do good things. He also mentioned some other things which I have forgotten says Malik bin Hadith or galarneau. And that is as soon as the restaurant then added pray as you have seen me praying So Luke amar itunesu Sally, and when it is time for the Salah, one of you should call the other should pronounce the other and the oldest of you should lead the salah and this is in Bukhari and Muslim. Now see the these boys
How fortunate they were. But having said that hamdulillah I think it's very important for us to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for
decreeing that we live with a man in whichever period of history of the earth that Allah swatara decreed.
I want to tell you two things. One is Rasul Allah said I'm set to the Sahaba. He said, If you leave
1/10 of the dean, Allah will punish you.
And they said about a time will come on my oma. When if they hang on to the hold on to 10% or 1/10 of the deen. Allah will give them better.
Now we can interpret this any time, any age, people can interpret this and say that age of holding on to only 10% of the deen is surely this age. That's not a useful discussion because nobody can give any definitive answer to that. But the fact remains that the farther away that we are from the time or resources the more Allah Subhana Allah gave us leeway.
So in one way, or hamdulillah that Allah subhanaw taala caused us to be born and to be where we are.
Another beautiful how these two to relate to this are actually story from the Sierra
he's i would say the holy ron who was sitting with some of his friends of the sahaba when are you a young man who had been i mean he was born after her asylum passed away so he had never seen it was just
so he passed by and he stopped there and he made salam to his elders and he said how fortunate you were that you were born and you live during the time of our lives
and that you saw him and that you were in his company
so i was able to call him
and he said to him thank allah subhanho wa taala for decreeing you to be born when you were born and that allah subhana allah gave you even
he said because in our time among those who had the company of resources and who witnessed as well as a seller who saw him what i would have had and i will have
and of course many others who never believed in him who did not come to his lap who did not have faith in officials
including his or uncle vitaly and of course i will have also watched his own uncle
abdullah bin solo
right away when several other women saru medina
and many others who had the company out of the office versus but not only did they not benefit from that but they actually in the case of ebola have an women solo they actually cause the loss valterra to send down i at promising their destruction and promising punishment for them
now may allah protect us from ourselves but these wise malik been waited and his friends are the law known as vain these were different hamdulillah they were young boys who had the love of allah and allah wa salatu salam in their hearts and they came and they spent the time with them
and they are hugely benefited they learn from him and among the things that he told them was this was nothing about this
they spent 20 days now in these 20 days they are living in masuda nava sharif the eating from the houses of resources and as i mentioned they sleep there they wake up there
they witness roswell asylum
and of course obviously they also made and they are in the company of the great cobra
among the sahaba
they are going
to when they are going and as soon as solomon is now giving them some mercy at some advice
i think about is that in that situation obviously he would have told them many things during those 20 days so he is not doing a recall of all of that and saying well you remember i told you this and this and this and this and this whole long list no
if you weren't in that situation and somebody if somebody came and stayed with you for some time and then they were going to say please give us some advice what would you do you wouldn't tell them all that you spoke to them you would pick one or two or three maybe not more than that of the most important things and tell them only those
that's what was the radiant pick three pick only one and that one was salah
is a brain as you have seen me pray and when it's time for prayer one of you call the other and the oldest of you should read the salah
to call the other man and do salah even if you are alone this is from the sunnah of rasulullah salah and this is what he ordered us to do our sisters let us
know let us allow and let us ensure that the importance of salah is become ingrained becomes completely inside our heart
and is reflected in every action that comes out of our bodies
the importance of salah
and remember that salah
allah ordered it and the soldiers also taught us how to do it
the one who wants to practice islam without
acknowledging the position of resources alive and without following him
is completely and totally deluded
And he's trying to do something which is completely impossible.
There is no Islam without Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. There is no Islam without the Sunnah of Hamas.
There is no Islam without following the Hadees of Rasul Allah is that
right? So, please understand this and ensure that we follow the deen in duality,
in word and in spirit.
So we looked at two of the principles of
Islam, two of the pillars, caliber Shahada and Salah The third one is I got a lot of deals.
how much I got to give?
What is the god liable on?
For example, we know that Zakat is levied on gold and silver not on precious stones not on diamonds and rubies and so on.
Where did this information
how much I got? Is there any Zakat on
agricultural produce? Is there any Zakat on animals
if I have goods
of trade, trade good
is there's a cut on that
and so on. All of this we got from Russell nice.
I remind myself I knew
that it was entirely possible follows vinyl data without any exaggeration
and a without any exception to write or to mention
all of these details
in the corner
I lost around a local attorney there's nothing to stop him I was worried that I was not you know constrained by having to stick to so many I thought so many words and so on. So, how to do Salah five Salawat certain fighters will be prayed like this with this Suna and so on Serato zohore like this so many regard and this is what should be done. This is what you do standing This is how it started this is how it ends. This is what is to be decided the different actions all of this could have been mentioned in the
Quran. What how to prepare for Salah all the soul of the Hara for example.
Walsall wardo When does it begin when when I will I will do my hustle when I will I will to make Whoo, what breaks the Voodoo What must you do? How much to do the Voodoo how much to do the puzzle what are the four is
what will invalidate them?
All of this could have been in the Quran.
Similarly with the gut, what is it level on how much to pay, who to pay, who not to pay? who's eligible to receive Zakat?
All of this could have been in the Quran, it is not the hora.
This is because Allah subhanaw taala wants to establish the central position of NaVi sallallahu Sallam in this day. And there is a very good reason for that. The reason is the rossano salam was there physically present people would ask him whatever they want to ask him.
So Allah subhanaw taala used him to teach those people so that they have a strong connection and binding with the
they're not just reading a book or they're not just listening to something and then coming to their own conclusions here is the person who received his book
and who received the knowledge in order to be able to interpret that book and to teach that book.
That is the position of Muhammad Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam absolutely is like the backbone of the body
without which the body cannot stand.
We come to the third one, which is fasting. Allah Rhonda said yeah, you will levina armano quotevalet gosia mukalla
publikum La Laguna de una said oh believe fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you so that you may become matakohe so that you may become biased so that you will become people who are concerned about the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala in every action in their lives, in every aspect of their lives in every action in their lives. This is the purpose of
the meaning of taqwa is to be conscious of and worried about and concerned about allah subhanho diana's pleasure in everything that we say and do
all the promises in the quran are for the buddhahood and that's why to become a motor is so critically important and in order to help us to become motor home allah subhanho data centers iscala centers ramadan and prescribed fasting for us because fasting makes you fast you basically draws our attention to or emphasizes obedience to allah
because during the past even that which was normally halaal becomes haram we hold ourselves back from that which is normally hello
so obviously this is a
message an emphatic message to us to say if in order to obey allah because it is the order of allah and there's no other reason why do you fast because allah said so
so we are saying to ourselves and we reminding ourselves that if the order of allah is so important that i will even give up halaal how much more important is it that i should give up haram for the same reason which is because allah prohibited it
how can somebody who is fasting 30 days of ramadan simultaneously also take an interest based loan
and run a business with that and with that income is breaking is fast how utterly shameful is that
right how utterly shameful is that if there was somebody who broke his fast with drinking whiskey for example or instead of he fasted he fast the whole day and instead of
instead of drinking water
for the star if he's drinking gin and tonic or if he is drinking you know scotch on the rocks what would you say
you would say this is blasphemy this is miserable this is horrible you should be ashamed of yourself
you're breaking your fast with something which is haram
what do you say about someone who is baking is fast with income which is
the food that he bought food itself is hard
but what he purchased that food with that income of his his heroin
what do you say to that this is our problem our problem is we have decided to make some things halaal and some things around on ourselves that is why we will not eat pork but we will drink alcohol
because you don't want to eat pork anyway
or you got some cultural taboo you got mental conditioning
and so eating pork is you know you you find it disgusting or not to eat pork for example is not difficult for you because you don't want to eat anyway
but if i give you a chicken and you're not sure if that chicken has been slaughtered properly or not
do you hold yourself back because as far as the haram part is concerned both are equally haram
do you say sorry i will not eat a chicken which is not hand slaughtered because i'm not sure whether this chicken is halal or not so therefore i'm not gonna read it do you do say that
how are other other was the dar abdullah good
whatever is there
please understand this is not the deen is not a game right
there is meaning in that there is dignity in that there is it it is enormously important
so similarly you have an interest based business your bet you're buying you are set you set up your business from taking a bank loan
which you know was haram
you took this bank loan knowing that others have another a declared war on the one who does that on his own behalf and on behalf of russell's alum
and from this business of yours
from that income you're buying food for your car what kind of fasting is that what kind of thought is that i won't say it is rejected it is not accepted it's not my job to sit here and you fatwas i'm just asking you to use your own intelligence ask
Her own heart
he was satisfied with this.
And if you are not satisfied with his why are you doing it?
Why are you doing this? This is about yourself.
So Allah, Allah told us to fast so that we become mustafi
if I'm fasting and I become a Moto G then what must happen? I must not disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala at all in any way in anything.
If that is not happening, if I am fasting and I am still disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm buying and selling haram I have businesses which are which are selling Haram. I'm working in companies where some swear all kinds of you know doubtful things, then it is not correct and I must not fall into this trap.
This is the meaning of the kalama.
So Allah, Allah told us to fast as well as Salah, Salah is Adam showed us how to fast from what time to what time, what breaks the fast, what does not break the fast.
What must I do, if I break the fast, what is the cover of all this?
right and so on and so forth.
we come to the
Shahada, Salah fasting, I mean, the god fasting and the last of the five pillars of Islam is Hajj, Allah
in Avila by jeu de nasi Lillahi barakaatuh Mubarak and bajo de Lille I mean, while Illa he either nasty head jewel Beatty money stata la de sebelah woman Guevara for in Allah avani Yun I nearly I mean a lot of our data said which means other lightning round very Lee the first house of worship appointed for mankind was at bucha, which is the earlier name for Mecca.
Full of blessing and a guidance for al al amin, which is all the world's the men Jin whoever it manifest signs for example, the macom place of Ibrahim, Allah he set up
whoever enters it, he is safe. he attains security and Hajj which is the pilgrimage to the house of Allah had jus I'll bet that Allah Allah What is it? What is that? What he Lai Allah nasci hit jewel Beatty has to the house of Allah
and Hajj which is the pilgrimage to Mecca to the house, which means the Kaaba is a duty that mankind owes to Allah subhanho wa Taala
those who can afford the expenses
of this journey, so your conveyance your residence is on and also about disbelief that is denied Hajj and who says that he is not, he does not have to do Hajj and whatever they say. Then Allah, Allah said, then that person is a disbeliever.
And then Allah does not
stand in need of any of the elements. Allah does not need any of the
any of the
of the features any of the annual the alamy meaning human being the gentleman. So let's say what is believes, denies the denies Hutch is a disbeliever has left Islam. Now.
Here is this ibadah which is obviously and clearly so important. It is so important that a person who denies Hajj who does not do Hajj, even though he or she is eligible for it.
who refuses to do it, or who does not do it. This person has
left Islam quite literally this person has left Islam. Now, Allah subhanaw taala is you know saying
saying this, so emphatically
The question is, how do you hedge What is the matter
Who shot who showed us the method? processor? And he sir Hello Andy murase cocom take from me, the monastic take from me the rituals, the stages of Hajj, learn how to do Hajj from me.
Once again Allah would have mentioned all of this in the hora
even though it is such an important activity.
If you are eligible if you have the money to go for it make Nia do it as a first opportunity meaning this year
don't wait Masood Azhar as an object The one who is able to do Hajj that means who was eligible and who had the money who was capable of doing it, and did not do it and died will be resurrected with the
Yoda NASA he will resurrect it with the disbelievers because this person denied the pilgrimage to the house of Allah vannatta by his actions, please don't fall into that trap go and make Hajj
and remember all the Morocco has the rules of Hajj came to us from Russia. There's a long IDs about the
Hydra pseudo solemn which is in detail in
and in other places which narrates the nerves all the masik how which was the most important thing to understand the thing about this Rasul
Allah said hatch to the house of Allah. But what he knows and observe what has he said the one who has not stood in alpha for him, there is no edge he has not done
so which is the place for
alpha which is far away from the house. So if somebody comes to the house of Allah subhanaw taala during the time of Hajj from nine villager onwards, and he said Allah said Hajj to the house, so I'm going to stay here and I'm going to make the offer Kaba and I will pray here and this is my hedge.
Is it easy touch is it valid? If someone says Why must I wear this around which is with neither looks good nor feels good? It is not comfortable? It is not fashionable.
It is a difficult thing to manage. Why can't I wear you know dry or tracksuit or something which is comfortable and which is which is you know looks nice.
So I'm not going to wear Hara is his husband is his hedge valid? If somebody says Why must I sacrifice an animal I'm you know, I'm an animal lover. I will not sacrifice the animal. Why must I shave my hair?
There is no I must say what Rasul Allah is Allah Islam taught us is the Battle of Hajj.
If we want to do Hajj, which we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept and to reward us and what is the reward was they bought Vijay Is that the one who has completed the Hajj and whose hedges Maharaj is accepted. It is as if he was born on that day that person is completely and totally free from sin. All his sins are forgiven.
If you want that reward, then you have to do Hajj, how Passover celebrate Hajj. There's no argument about this.
There's no why and you know, why not? And so on and so forth.
This is the essence in the fundamental of Islam. And this again brings us back to column after Shall we Lyla. Hi Lola, I worship no one except Allah. No one except Allah is worthy of worship. Hajj is worship. Allah said make hi I said I am ready.
Wash iguana, Mohammed, Allah. And I believe that Baba Salam is the is the last and final messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah.
he is the last and final messenger of Allah.
Therefore I follow him and I obey Him. So I stand up to make Hajj. How should I make Hajj I learned from Allah. I stand up to do Salah How much do I do Salah alumnos yourself by the Hara. How is that to happen? I learned from the resource Oh
my god, how much to pay, who to pay what to pay on I learned on
my fasting from when to when what makes it what breaks it I learned from the sources.
Then how about how to do business? Then how about how to run a country? Then how about how to run my home
Then how about every other aspect of life, all of which require obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala. How to do those? From where munsterlander
through Howard from Stanford from Cambridge, from Oxford, from where?
Same source I learned from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa he was having said, that is the reason why to study the zero of Rosaura. Salah Salaam is so important to study his biography, I'm not just reading it. I'm talking about deep study in depth study, with only one intention, the intention is to implement it in our lives.
To follow his beautiful example in our lives, with that intention, we studies here and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make our lives like the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa, he was
asking us to be pleased with you whenever to be displeased, and to keep us firm on this kalama
and we ask Allah to make our feet firm in this world and when we go in our COBOL in our graves and when we are resurrected on the Day of Judgment before I must manage data, and we ask Allah to protect us and keep us safe in the company of a sorceress alum, all the way into general for those who Allah and to grant us his company, in general for those who either be Aveda hisab was Allah Allah Allah will vary widely, he will savage me, Veronica Rahi well hamdulillah Hello, Bill alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
