00:00:05--> 00:00:06

In Alhamdulillah,

00:00:07--> 00:00:11

WA salatu salam ala rasulillah bad

00:00:13--> 00:00:15

My dear brothers and sisters

00:00:18--> 00:00:24

I want to talk to you today about the greatest asset that we have as Muslims

00:00:26--> 00:00:27

and that is Salah.

00:00:29--> 00:00:31

What we know in our

00:00:33--> 00:00:34

country here as numbers

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

I strongly encourage you to use the actual Quranic terminology that is good. The name of Allah is Allah not for that it's not haram to do that but it's when Allah subhanaw taala name is there. Why do you want to use another name which you have invented? Similarly Salah is Salah, it's not haram to say namaz Angela we can say that we understand what it means but when we use the Quranic term, then we are using a term which is from the column of Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:02--> 00:01:22

14 centuries ago, an incident happened that had never happened before, and never happened again. And that incident was the incident of Easter our marriage, where Allah subhanaw taala took his messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam on a multi dimensional journey,

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

spanning the universe,

00:01:27--> 00:01:33

showing him things that we know about today and showing him things that we do not even know about today.

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

About this journey Allah subhanaw taala said

00:01:39--> 00:02:23

how do we like immunoassay Tania rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Subhana Allah de Sora br o de la la mina al Masjid al haram ala Alma de de la casa de Baraka hola hola Noria home Anya. Tina. In who was Sammy, bossy? Allah, Glorified and Exalted is He Allah subhana wa tada about all that they associate with him, who took his slave hammers Allah Allah Allah Azza wa sallam for a journey by night, from Al Masjid al Haram in Makkah to the furthest mosque in Jerusalem al Masjid Al Aqsa, may Allah subhanho wa Taala free the Mashallah cacib in

00:02:25--> 00:02:29

the neighborhood of which the surroundings of which Allah subhana wa Taala said,

00:02:30--> 00:02:50

we have blessed Baraka anahola who we have blessed the surroundings in the neighborhood of our master de la casa, in order that we may show him Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam our hearts and our minds. Verily he Allah subhanaw taala is Samuel Busey, we're all here and all sia,

00:02:51--> 00:03:05

on this journey aerosolised salaam was taken from one dimension into another dimension, from one heaven into another heaven until they reached gibberella. A ceram was his guide until they reached

00:03:06--> 00:03:14

the final barrier, the final place. And then gra Salam said you have been ordered by Europe to go forward.

00:03:15--> 00:03:22

And also Allah Subhanallah Sallam said to jabril he said, Will you not come with me now jabril says my head this year.

00:03:23--> 00:03:58

He says beyond this, I have no authority to go forward. And the authority to go forward from here on is only yours. So you go forward. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best. What that forward meant and Allah subhanaw taala knows best what he showed is Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But what we know is that when the VI sallallahu alayhi salam returned from that place, the place beyond Sidra calm into the place of honor which Allah subhanaw taala only gave to one in his entire creation. And that was Mohammed bin Abdullah Salalah Holly was I was Allah.

00:03:59--> 00:04:03

He came back with a gift. He came back with a gift.

00:04:05--> 00:04:06

And this gift was Allah.

00:04:08--> 00:04:22

It's strange today we consider Salah Muslims we concerns even the ones who pray. May Allah forgive those who don't pray that's a different matter. But the ones who pray also majority of us we consider the Salah to be a burden that we discharge and when we are discharged Alhamdulillah have gone

00:04:24--> 00:04:25

where this is not what the Salah is.

00:04:26--> 00:04:33

This is not what the Salah is not a burden to be discharged. The Salah is a gift from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:04:34--> 00:04:44

Now why this gift, and not only this gift, Allah subhanaw taala gave this gift to his navy and through the Baraka of his dubby he sent this gift for the entire Oman till the Day of Judgment.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

And why this gift for one very good reason. And that reason is that this Nabil was to be the last of the ambia of Allah subhanho wa Taala he was to be the last of the messengers, the last of the prophets.

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

The last of those who Allah subhanaw taala communicated with directly

00:05:04--> 00:05:25

the last of those who received the heat from Allah subhanaw taala. Yet the work of messenger hood, the work of prophethood, the work of Nobu at wants to continue until the day of judgment, because there is always a need as long as Allah subhanaw taala chooses to keep this world, there is always a need for the creature for the human being to be introduced to his job.

00:05:28--> 00:05:39

And that job which was the job of the Gambia, was given because of the fact that also lasala salam was to be the last Nabhi Allah subhanaw taala gave that job to his own boss,

00:05:41--> 00:05:42

the job of the MBA,

00:05:44--> 00:05:59

but therefore, it was essential for the oma who was being given the job of noble watts, to be able to connect with them, and to seek guidance from the rub, and to seek spiritual and mental

00:06:01--> 00:06:04

and physical sustenance and support from them.

00:06:06--> 00:06:11

Without the support the MBR could not work. And without this support, we cannot work.

00:06:13--> 00:06:35

So when the he had been stopped, how was the ordinary Muslim to get the support. And that was the gift that Allah subhanaw taala gave Allah subhanaw taala gave this gift, where the ordinary Muslim was given the permission to walk into the presence of his rub at will whenever you want it day or night 24 seven

00:06:39--> 00:06:58

where he was given the the the permission to walk into the presence of his Rob and ask his Rob and speak to his Rob and listen to the column of Islam and listen to the speech of Islam and to get the strength from the magnificence of the presence of Islam on call anytime you want it.

00:07:01--> 00:07:01

This is

00:07:03--> 00:07:06

the ability to go into the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala anytime

00:07:09--> 00:07:14

and that is why Allah subhanaw taala said to is Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Yeah

my brother and sisters we watch you

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

Living God, never forget that. We worship a living God. When you stand here ready to say Allahu Akbar, Allah is there and listening to you.

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

You're not talking to a concept. You are not talking to a rock.

00:10:17--> 00:10:26

You're not talking to an idea. You're not talking to a human being. You're talking to a living God who sees you, who hears you, who understands your language and responds to you.

00:10:28--> 00:10:29

Never forget that.

00:10:31--> 00:10:31

And Allah says,

00:10:33--> 00:10:34

In the nazjatar, Li

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

Allah says it is difficult to stand up in the right we know this.

00:10:40--> 00:10:48

What our aquabot healer, but it is very good to discipline yourself and to understand the column of Allah subhanaw taala

00:10:53--> 00:10:56

the Salah, is our charging,

00:10:57--> 00:11:01

plug in the phone if you want the phone to work, plug it in, so it has a full charge

00:11:04--> 00:11:11

because the next day you have to do a lot of work. And that work cannot be done without the strength from Allah subhanaw taala

00:11:15--> 00:11:18

the question I asked myself I knew is many of us

00:11:19--> 00:11:36

we thought we like to say we are die of Islam we like to say that we invite towards Islam we run organizations which are Muslim organizations, which are inviting to people inviting people to Allah subhanaw taala question as myself when you is how many people in those organizations standing the night and cry before Allah subhanaw taala for success of that work?

00:11:39--> 00:11:39

How many people

00:11:41--> 00:12:16

because remember, the way to get success of this work is from connection with Allah subhanaw taala if our people we included and we first before them, if we do not stand in the right and cry before Allah subhanho wa Taala for the success of our work of Dean that work will fail no matter how many talented and like and and did and bla bla bla people you have got in the organization, none of that matters because they have no way of connecting with the rub. If they cannot connect with their lab, their talent is not worth a wit.

00:12:18--> 00:12:19

Allah does not need your talent.

00:12:21--> 00:12:31

Allah does not need your talent. Allah wants to know whether you are connected with him or not. If you are connected with him, then Allah subhanaw taala will give you the talent that you need.

00:12:33--> 00:12:34

Allah will train you

00:12:36--> 00:12:39

Amaya tequila while you are limo como la.

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

And for those who connected

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

Allah subhanaw taala responded

00:13:00--> 00:13:13

00:14:18--> 00:14:18

is one

00:14:20--> 00:14:27

last Ayah how many times when we read desire to be realized that this is Allah subhanaw taala speaking to the layman, why

00:14:28--> 00:14:32

is that? Allah speaking to the people who who did what he asked them to do?

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

read the Quran with realization.

00:14:39--> 00:14:40

read the Quran realisation.

00:14:42--> 00:14:53

Allah subhanaw taala said, verily Europe knows that you do stand to pray at night, a little less than two thirds of the night or half the night or a third of the night and so do a party of those with you.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

And Allah measures the night in the day. He knows that you are not able to pray the

00:15:00--> 00:15:00

All night.

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

As Eva, the requirement is to play the whole night.

00:15:05--> 00:15:40

He knows that you are not able to pray the whole night so he has turned to you in mercy. So reside of the Quran as much as may be easy for you. He knows that there will be some among you who are sick, and others who are traveling through the land seeking the the favor of Allah subhanaw taala seeking His bounty and yet others who are fighting in the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala so reside as much of the Quran as may be easy for you and perform as Salah kamati Salah established us Allah and gives a card and give some more after that. You're

00:15:41--> 00:16:14

gonna, Allah says give some more after that, give a goodly loan, a caravan has a good loan, and whatever good you send before you in terms of novel, you will certainly find it with Allah better and greater and reward. And let's talk for the law seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala and Verily Allah subhanaw taala for him He is the author of forgiving most merciful desire requires all lecture by itself. I'm not going into that because every single word of that needs explanation, but inshallah enough as far as our job is

00:16:15--> 00:16:16

to give you some

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

pointers to what you should read inshallah.

00:16:22--> 00:16:24

Apart from the reward Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:26--> 00:17:07

We have to understand the Salah, is to inculcate in Muslims the habit of asking only from Allah subhanaw taala and bowing only to Allah subhanaw taala. It is to inculcate in the Muslims the discipline of cleansing themselves from impurity and sin of repenting their sins, of returning to Allah subhanho wa Taala of planning their lives of having a timetable or following a leader, standing shoulder to shoulder with their brothers and collectively demonstrating their brotherhood of faith of being an oma it's important to understand the benefits of salah and to realize what a big honor it is that we so that we gladly and eagerly fulfill its responsibility.

00:17:08--> 00:17:42

Allah subhanaw taala use the Salah as a means of joining Muslims as brothers and sisters, with worshiping Him as being the criterion gala da da da da de moto moto wahida anara bukom fabu Allah truly rizoma viewers, this oma is this brotherhood of faith is one oma and I am your and therefore worship me. And that is why when de los alamos asked who is a Muslim, he replied, anyone who believes in La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, Who

00:17:46--> 00:17:46

eats what

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

only big idea

00:17:54--> 00:17:57

someone who prays to Qibla and

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

today we have

00:18:09--> 00:18:12

thoughts of small unimportant

00:18:13--> 00:18:14

and we will not

00:18:17--> 00:18:18

do this and we'll do that and we divide

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

this is to create

00:18:28--> 00:18:29

a Muslim

00:18:33--> 00:18:36

concern This is something which is so important and

00:18:37--> 00:18:48

and with joins us together as an oma that we must remember that this is the only thing the only criterion that joins us together as an oma and that is Allah

00:18:49--> 00:19:09

and Allah subhanaw taala said this criterion we did not set the criterion Allah subhanaw taala set this criteria and therefore it is very important for us not to create new criteria for ourselves, but to use the Salah as the criterion because that is the criterion. That's the only criterion that Allah subhanaw taala has given us and which we should, which we should use.

00:19:10--> 00:19:13

My brothers and sisters, I remind you myself when you

00:19:15--> 00:19:20

that Allah subhanaw taala when he gave us this gift of Salah

00:19:22--> 00:19:37

Allah subhanaw taala did another very interesting thing. And that is that in the Quran, he said Abu Salah, he said establish the salah, but Allah Allah subhanaw taala did not teach us how to do Salah. He did not teach us the method of salah

00:19:38--> 00:19:41

and instead he taught the method to his Nabil

00:19:42--> 00:19:46

and his name he came and he said Sal Luke Mr. Mooney, usually

00:19:47--> 00:19:50

he said pray as you see me pray.

00:19:51--> 00:19:51

Why?

00:19:54--> 00:19:56

First and most important reason

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

to establish two major reasons

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

Number one, to establish the importance of the nobbies Allah Allah Allah, Allah.

00:20:06--> 00:20:18

Allah is not Maharaj Allah is not limited. Allah subhanaw taala could have given us detailed instructions in the Quran on how to pray. There was no one in the world to stop Allah subhanaw taala and say you know this Quran can only be so many is

00:20:19--> 00:20:22

otherwise the publisher will not publish it. So reduce your number of irons.

00:20:24--> 00:20:46

La quwata illa Allah, Allah subhanaw taala could have made the Quran as big as he wanted. But Allah subhanaw taala had to establish the position of his Navy so he said to me, You teach them tsunami said Son Luke Amara tamanu Sandy's at spray as you see me pray. second issue is to establish on the oma the importance of the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:20:48--> 00:20:53

The importance of ETB of the Sunnah, not even ethos of the Sunnah

00:20:54--> 00:21:20

to establish Salah is at the heart of Allah subhanho wa Taala and is Nabhi. The methodology of Salah is the teba of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam because when Rasul Allah says Allah What did he say said spray as you see me pray, he did not say pray as I tell you to pray. He said he did not say pray as I teach you to pray. He said, Pray as you see me pray, what is it about it device to do what you see him do?

00:21:22--> 00:21:38

And Allah subhanaw taala started with the highest possible thing in this world, which is worship. Why? So that it gets established into our minds, that if the Nabhi is to be obeyed, without question, without argument,

00:21:39--> 00:21:43

without saying is this his other thought is is this is so nuts?

00:21:44--> 00:21:56

If he is to be obeyed completely and totally without question, in the matter of worship, then how much more important is it to obey Him and all other matters which are not as important as worship?

00:21:58--> 00:22:00

Think about them. The most important thing

00:22:02--> 00:22:09

and how important is Salah, how important is Allah? Allah Azza wa sallam said in the Hadees, which is men narrated in Bukhari and Muslim.

00:22:11--> 00:22:14

He said I had already been an albino masala

00:22:15--> 00:22:47

woman, our other half Assad Guevara. He said the boundary between them and us is Salah, the boundary between the non Muslim and the Muslim is Salah Oman. Aha, the one who lives it forgot Guevara. He's a copper he has left Islam. Why? Because the Salah is the physical manifestation of the kalama in the heart. You know, and I know that there are three truth. There are three conditions of entering Islam. What are those three conditions? Those of you who have come to the classes, you know all of this by heart,

00:22:48--> 00:22:49

or at least I hope you know about

00:22:51--> 00:23:20

three conditions. A cron bill isn't to say it with your tongue. Does the dumbbell curl to to reaffirm that in your heart to believe that in your heart and then what Mr. Wheeler can do like I said, Mr. de la can to demonstrate that with your actions. What is the action which demonstrate a shadow Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, there is no one worthy of worship except Allah which is the action which demonstrates that Salah

00:23:21--> 00:23:27

it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever if I were to say, a shadow Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah and then I do not pray.

00:23:29--> 00:23:33

I say only Allah is worthy of worship, but I do not worship Allah. So now where is the man

00:23:36--> 00:23:44

you get the you get the sense of this thing. And that's why there is no such thing as an NPM no non practicing Muslim. You are a Muslim or you're not a Muslim, period.

00:23:46--> 00:23:57

Because if you are saying I shadow Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah there is no one worthy of worship except Allah. Then what must you do? worship Allah. If you don't worship Allah, then you are not your karma karma you have negated your karma yourself.

00:23:59--> 00:24:22

And that's exactly the happiness of the opera Zola, Zola Salah, where he said this very clearly, and this is the deal which is reported in Bukhari Muslim, and Abu Tao and Timothy and a sizable image as well narrated by bowrider vellano where he said this and also was a Muslim said the fact the I had between them and us is the prayer the Salah, whoever abandons it has left Islam and is it is beloved

00:24:23--> 00:24:59

in the table before that, Abdullah Al Assad Delano in a in a hadith which is narrated by Muhammad and even a ban and torani. He said that he narrated from rasulillah salam and he said that the prophets Allah Allah said whoever guards and observes his Salah, Salah what prayers, they will be alight and a proof and a savior for them on the Day of Resurrection. And whosoever does not guard and observe them they will not be a light or proof or a savior on on that as and on the Day of Resurrection the Day of Judgment. This person who does not worship will be with our own fear our Harmon

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

By Edna Khalaf who was the head of the University of Medina, neither table judgmental Allah says in the Tafseer of this, I said the one who does not pray, maybe maybe he does not pray because he's preoccupied with his wealth or his kingdom, which means his authority and position or his position or business. If one is not praying because he is occupied by his wealth, he will be resurrected with charoen the one whose kingdom keeps him away and his authority and his government keeps them away from the Salah will be resurrected with Harmon and for our and the one whose business keeps him away will be resurrected with Obi Wan Hello,

00:25:42--> 00:25:55

may Allah subhanaw taala protect us from this because this is not a this is not a simple thing. And is based on this and many other hobbies that the IMA have stated that the one who lives Allah has left Islam

00:25:57--> 00:26:09

It's strange that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam used to talk about he used to say for a hobby he used to say obey Allah make us happy with the Salah. He said go call the man for a nappy.

00:26:10--> 00:26:18

make us happy with the salah and two days of our lives if we were to say the same thing we will be we would have to say make us happy by living this law in the law in the law to

00:26:19--> 00:26:25

free us from this Allah. Allah Allah, Allah Allah Think about this. This is the this is the this is because we don't understand what is

00:26:27--> 00:26:39

why would you voluntarily want to give up the greatest gift that you got from Allah subhanaw taala The only answer is that you don't understand that it's a gift. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our hearts to his gifts inshallah so that we don't leave these gifts.

00:26:40--> 00:26:52

There are three aspects to salah and very quickly I'm going to go over them three aspects to salah and then of course this goodbyes you know is will be on the on the on my website on the net, the whole text of it is there so do take it down and read it as well.

00:26:53--> 00:26:55

three aspects of Salah

00:26:56--> 00:26:58

pre Salah inshallah post Salah.

00:26:59--> 00:27:08

Now pre Salah is the preparation for Salah itself and this includes all the outcome of Iran Of course I'm not going to go into the Sahara here that's not are not part of our

00:27:09--> 00:27:49

thing here but do ensure and talk to people have knowledge and ensure that your data is perfect because without data without Budo the Salah is defective and in some cases it might be completely invalid whatsoever if the thing that is why that is negative or Tara is serious enough so do make sure that you know the outcome of the Hara. The second thing is to be for Salah is to do three things number one, guard your eyes and ears because if your eyes and ears are seeing haram then shaitan will use those pictures and those sounds to take away your concentration in Salah. So when you are standing in salah and you want to concentrate on Allah subhanho wa Taala and get some Cujo.

00:27:49--> 00:28:02

Then you will find all sorts of things happening in your mind and this is the result of what you have been watching outside of Salah number one, or listening outside of Salah number two important thing is to be constantly in the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:28:03--> 00:28:20

not necessarily to walk around with a video and liquor of Allah subhanaw taala is to be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala in all our actions, demonstration of which is obedience to the account of Allah subhanho wa Taala and to the Sunnah of his Nabi Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam.

00:28:21--> 00:28:26

The third one is to prepare for Salah proper Budo Proper Clause.

00:28:27--> 00:28:31

Allah subhanaw taala said go to the masajid with your Xena

00:28:33--> 00:29:09

he sir Kudo, Xena autoconfig Willie masajid Allah doesn't go into the masses with yours go in I'm not saying go to you know wear a three piece suit when you go to the mosque but you wear proper clothes as well. Depends now again suppose you are a motor mechanic you're working under car time for Salah we're not saying go home have a bad day No. As long as there is no magic on you you are you are perfectly free to play in clothes which have dust clothes which have oil on them this oil is not nudges dust is not nudges Alhamdulillah, you can pray you should pray, but I'm saying when we have the time and take the time to prepare for Salah put on some perfume cover your head the

00:29:09--> 00:29:32

covering of the head is the zenith of the man it is a tsunami de la sala Jeep I always tell all my all my great Salafi friends I got lots and lots of them. I tell them you are not selfish. You're selfish because you follow the people who came after you follow the people who came after the salaf because none of us are afraid without the head covered. They all used to wear turbans I mean what happened your turban you know so at least where it's sometimes

00:29:34--> 00:29:34

Yes, we

00:29:35--> 00:29:49

were in at least sometimes going ahead. This is from the center of the man to cover the head and he assumed our visa lasala similarly clothes don't go into the masjid after eating. You know some people come into the budget they spend like part of biryani or something la Lakota level

00:29:50--> 00:29:53

so don't don't don't make sure your your your clothes are not spelling.

00:29:54--> 00:29:55

unpleasant.

00:29:56--> 00:30:00

Once you Stan make the Nia for Salah, and then you

00:30:00--> 00:30:33

Make the NEA it is not the place for the Nia rasulillah salam said this is the heart It is not necessary to speak the Nia aloud you don't have to say I'm standing here to make Torah casado Juma behind is a man whose name I don't know in this budget with red carpets and with air conditioning and bla bla bla and Hyderabad city in capital of Annapolis, you don't have to do all of this. You just make the Nia for Java in your heart fellas. But it is important to make me I don't have gone stand. Just going and standing is not enough you have a sense that I'm here for this particular Salah when you make the Nia before you actually enter Salah.

00:30:34--> 00:30:56

Say I will be live in a certain region because only Allah subhanaw taala can protect us from the Shaitaan. And then if you have the time also resides allow the will of Venus because that is a specific surah which is against what's obvious. And then you stand and make the knee and stand in Salah. And then think of what you are saying in eva jatoba jalila de Vaca sama de Waal or hanifa fun mama and I'm in

00:30:58--> 00:31:05

the words of Emily's Salah, which Allah subhanaw taala put in his column, that I turn my face towards the one who is the father of somato

00:31:06--> 00:31:11

consciousness of where we are standing consciousness of in whose presence we are standing

00:31:13--> 00:31:14

and then we enter Salah.

00:31:16--> 00:31:18

Now, inshallah

00:31:20--> 00:31:28

Allah subhanaw taala said that Allah Allah, Allah Xena home feasts Allah to him hotshoe Harsha to La

00:31:29--> 00:31:38

hoshido of Salah This is very very important Allah tala said successful indeed other believers and they are the people who pray with concentration and dedication.

00:31:39--> 00:32:05

The quality of Salah is very important to work on my brothers and sisters and the quality of Salah. What do you do with WhatsApp is ignore them. Continue to speak. Think about this. When I'm speaking to you. Now most of you are paying complete attention to me your thoughts are not wandering here and there. You know big reason why? Because you understand what I'm saying. If I were to speak to you in some language that you don't understand, your thoughts will wander here and there. Supposing I give you a completely in Arabic,

00:32:06--> 00:32:39

which most of you don't understand that your mind will go everywhere because you don't understand what's going on. It's only sound. And that's what happens to us in Salah because when the Imam is reciting May Allah forgive us sometimes even even does not know what he's saying. But even if he knows what he's saying, you don't know what he's saying. So your thoughts go all over the place. So it's very important for us to learn Arabic to understand the Quran, at least to learn the meanings of the sutras that are recited that are that are that we use generally speaking, so that we are clear and our concentration is on the column of Allah subhanaw taala how strange it is that when I'm

00:32:39--> 00:32:44

speaking to you, your concentration does not go but when you are hearing the kalama follower concentration goes here.

00:32:45--> 00:32:55

That's a very strange thing. And it's it's something that is, you know, that really should not happen at all. Because the whole issue of concentration has to do with understanding so build an understanding.

00:32:59--> 00:33:07

The best description of the concentration in Salah is the statement of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in the famous Hadees jabril

00:33:08--> 00:33:17

where Jabra is Allah Masha Allah Azza wa sallam and he said as Bernie, Angela, Hassan, Yasser Allah, he's also Allah please explain to me what is the sun

00:33:18--> 00:33:22

and the sun was Allah Salim Sarah Santiago de la Kanaka Tara,

00:33:23--> 00:33:31

Tara in La Jolla, he said to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as if you can see him and if you cannot seem to know that Allah is seeing you

00:33:32--> 00:33:42

and this is the position of the horseshoe of Salah. Finally, we come to the last part of Salah, which is the issue of what happens outside of Salah.

00:33:45--> 00:33:57

One of our teachers, maulana Yunus Bertil damato la la. He passed away recently a couple of weeks ago he passed away in Makkah in the harem. He bred Missouri we made toffee bread lacasa I sat down and he died.

00:33:58--> 00:34:18

In north of Swan, Rajiv Allah subhanaw taala gives the name out and his next morning he was a salad The janazah was was done by chef Showtime and He is buried in Walla in Makkah, may Allah subhanaw taala fill his cover with more and have mercy on him and forgive me since he used to say Salah begins when you leave the masjid.

00:34:19--> 00:34:50

ajeeb statement used to say Salah begins when you leave the masjid. He said because all that you learned in the Salah. of Osho of concentration Allah subhanaw taala on taqwa of Kasha tala, of standing equal with your brothers of paying consideration to your brothers of following an Imam. All of this is not to be left inside the masjid when you step out of the masjid. All of this is to leave with the masjid and go with you so that you practice this in your life.

00:34:51--> 00:35:00

So as to say Salah begins when you leave the machine and I remind myself and you to understand this because it is

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

Very very important for us to understand the Salah is not simply some ritual that we perform and we go home and you know, Salam Alaikum know, the Salah is meant for us to

00:35:11--> 00:35:31

use as a tool and Allah subhanaw taala said this in Surah Baqarah Allah subhanaw taala as well as in amorous trying to be somebody was selling in Allahu Allah Subhan Allah tala said Oh, you believe take the help of salah and summer, take the help of someren Salah for what for everything is that you know, take the help.

00:35:32--> 00:35:39

Salah is a tool Salah is the weapon of the Muslim, Salah is the biggest resource of the Muslim.

00:35:41--> 00:36:08

And that is the reason why we need to improve the Salah, and why we need to make the Salah such that the Salah will be a source of help for us in this area. It will be a source of news for us in our COBOL and it will be the source of Naja and deliverance on the day of judgment in sha Allah. Because Allah Salam said that the first thing about which a believer will be questioned is salah

00:36:09--> 00:36:27

and if that is in order, then the rest of his his app will be in order and he will be delivered from from Johanna May Allah make us among them. And he said if that Salah is in a problem, then the rest of his his app will also be in a problem and May Allah protect us from that?

00:36:28--> 00:36:30

Ask Allah subhanaw taala to be pleased with you

00:36:31--> 00:36:55

and to grant you and me the sweetness of Salah because as we are about to enter the month of Ramadan This is the last Juma before Ramadan inshallah. Ramadan is the month of the Quran it is the month of Salah. It is the month of Dharavi it is the month of MLA and asked Allah subhanaw taala to give us the show and give us the photo and give us the ability to connect with him and give us the sweetness of Salah inshallah.

00:36:57--> 00:37:00

Now before I before I complete a

00:37:01--> 00:37:03

couple of announcements with regard to
