Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Shara film ba Vermouths serene Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Taala he was the Sleeman Kathira and Casita, home Babu, my brothers and sisters Alhamdulillah we are blessed with a lot of people with a lot of good intentions. May Allah bless them May Allah make their intentions pure and may Allah accept their intentions and convert them into good actions which he also should accept and reward them.

00:00:29--> 00:00:35

I want to remind myself and you that we have a religion which is based on a book and the book is the Quran will carry

00:00:36--> 00:01:00

the basic fundamental principle in our religion which I mentioned before as well is that all matters of a bada and Akita Akiva anybody, the Creed and worship are strictly and strictly controlled by what Rasul Allah is Allah Allah He values I will sell them said, taught and did and that is based on the Quran will carry

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

every single piece of our creed, who we worship, which is Allah subhanaw, Taala gelato, how we worship, which is Salah.

00:01:12--> 00:01:59

And from there onwards, I don't want to make a long list, I'm sure all of us are aware of them. So we do in terms of our iba, that in terms of our Aqeedah in terms of arriba that we do what Allah subhanaw taala ordered us to do in the way that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam taught us. This is the fundamental formula. This is the fundamental principle. We do what Allah ordered in the way that Rasul Allah is Allah Selim taught us to give you an example Allah subhanaw taala said Akemi Salah tal is decree established the salah for my vicar for my remembrance. How do we do that? In the way that Rasul allah sallallahu Sallam taught us and the way he prayed where he said Sir lo Kamara, I

00:01:59--> 00:02:02

too many who sadly, pray as you have seen me pray.

00:02:04--> 00:02:50

So if somebody says this is a fantastic thing, and I will pray but I think that just to recap for Fudger is to less I love Allah subhanaw taala a great deal. I would like to pray 20 raka have fought Salah for Salah to Fajr his Salah is invalid if somebody says just to sudo this is not enough. I have so much love for Allah. I'm going to make 10 to Joe in each record, his Salah is invalid even though his Nia is good, his he loves Allah subhanaw taala. But if he changes the method that wrestlers are seldom used for Salah, his Salah is invalid. If somebody says we have a bunch of people who do not understand Arabic, why must we pray in Arabic? Instead of saying Al hamdu? Lillahi

00:02:50--> 00:03:42

Rabbil Alameen? Why don't we say All Praise and all things are due to Allah subhana wa Tada, who is the creator, sustainer protector and the provider for the whole of universe and for all the worlds. Why don't we say that because people understand English, the Salah is invalid. I'm giving you this example because one of the things that I see happening of late thanks to all the crises in Palestine, in Philistine and in the Middle East, and also this general crisis that we as the Ummah, Muslimah, the OMA of the believers, find ourselves in is that people come up with these magic formula. For example, somebody says, let us have this global day of fasting. Now what is a global

00:03:42--> 00:04:26

day of fasting, fasting to, to keep a fast to do to have and then you know, pray during the fast after the fast time of soul time of Iftar. All of the 100 is that no problem. But you convert that into a global day of fasting and we say the aim is to get everyone everywhere in the whole world to be fasting on this particular day, which is the 18th of October or the 20th of October or the first of January, whatever. This is not permissible in Islam, because there is no delille for this. There is no proof there is no evidence for this. As I said, we are a religion we have a religion, which is based on evidence. And the evidence is the Kitab of Allah and the Sunnah of Rasulullah Hassan salah,

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

did he ever declare a global day of fasting? Did he say all the people in in the Hejaz because that was the globe at the time in terms of the presence of the Muslims. Everyone must pray together must fast together on this particular day. Because we are facing this danger. He didn't know that he didn't do that. He said you ask Allah subhanaw taala Allah said oh the only after the blog boom call me I will answer you. Let us call Allah we answer Allah. If somebody says you know it's a good idea to fast and then to call upon Allah of course Absolutely. No problem. Please go ahead, please fast

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

Please call upon Allah subhanaw taala. But if you convert that into a format, this is the day on such and such a date, global world a global day of fasting, my brothers and sisters, this is against the Sunnah and if you insist on it, it becomes a bit and therefore it becomes something which is instead of being something which is beneficial and which is rewarding, it becomes something for which we have to fear the possibility of punishment from Allah subhanaw taala. Similarly, if somebody says, Let us decide, this digger or that vicar, whatever the vicar might be, somebody says let us simply recite husband Allah whenever lucky, Let us recite along as he would have been a

00:05:38--> 00:06:16

nurse, let us decide whatever good thing you hungry La La hawla wala Quwata illa villa, let us decide this you know in our in during the day when we are walking around and so, on let us do this let us keep this in mind hamdulillah no problem, but somebody says we are going to send his message out on social media everybody and we everyone start reciting husband Allah whenever lucky we are trying to reach a count of 10 million 20 million 50 million this becomes a bizarre because there is no such delille there is no such evidence of this from the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salah please my brothers and sisters, this is the game of shatter shatter knows he cannot he cannot deceive you and

00:06:16--> 00:06:59

me he can make you and me drink alcohol or he can make and make your me gamble he can make make you and me inshallah do something which is openly haram. So, what does he do? He takes our Ibadah he takes the good deeds we want to do and he does one of two things, either he reduces their value by putting us into this framework of advertising this telling the whole world about it and so on. So therefore, therefore the value of it is reduced or goes away completely or he convert this into a Buddha which is haram, which is which results in the possibility of punishment from Allah's Manager. Please stay away from all of these things, no, no global fasting, no global prayer, no global, this

00:06:59--> 00:07:39

global that is not from Islam, this is somebody is bright idea. hamdulillah May Allah bless them, they are all of these come, these ideas come out of good intentions. But please understand, just a good intention is not sufficient for an action to be to be acceptable by Allah subhanaw taala for an action to be accepted by law Sumatera there are three requirements, the action must be in accordance with the Helcom the order the Command of Allah, it must be in the way the method of the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam and it must have a good intention of sincerity of his less, no showing off no advertising to the to anybody else and no other,

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

no other thought which is

00:07:43--> 00:08:22

which contaminates the action. So this is these are the three things which are required. Again, an example Allah subhanaw taala said he said, he said establish Salah Hamdulillah we have the Command of Allah when I started to pray, how do I pray according to the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salah we pray the way the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught us to pray. We don't pray in our own way. We don't invent a way we don't do this and that we pray in His way. And third thing is we don't pray to show off. We don't pray to advertise. We don't say I want to become the Imam I want to become the Hasib know, I pray with sincerity only for the pleasure of Allah all three things are in place, then

00:08:22--> 00:09:06

inshallah My prayer is acceptable. If I pray in a way, which is different from the matter of of rasa salah, no matter even though I am praying the prayer, if the matter is changed, the prayer is not acceptable. If I am praying in the same way and I'm praying the salah which Allah ordered but I'm my intention is to show off, my intention is corrupted. My prayer is not accepted. Please understand three things. How come of Allah order of Allah method of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and sincere intention? Intention alone is not good enough. Just wanting something it's a great idea. No, it is not a great idea. It's a very bad idea. Because this idea is taking you has the danger of taking you

00:09:06--> 00:09:10

and me into that. So stay away from all this global this global that

00:09:12--> 00:09:47

it lasts. We know the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salam and what Allah ordered is the Hajj is to pray stand up in the night, wake up one hour before it's a little further. Pray, hi God, make dua in sujood cry before Allah subhanaw taala beg Allah subhanaw taala to change our condition and have the complete and total your cleaner Allah insha Allah will change our condition. This is the Sunnah. This is beautiful. This has Baraka, we ask Allah for acceptance. We don't need anything else. Alhamdulillah what Allah gave us is enough, was Allah Allah, Allah will Karim Allah Allah. He was a member of Africa. All right.
