hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Shafi la mia, you will mousseline Muhammad Rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa salam, the Steven cathedra and cathedra from Abu

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

Salah is not whenever we feel like doing Salah is at its fixed time. That is why Allah's router has it in the salata Garnet Allah movie Nikita Mahkota Verily the Salah is enjoined on the believers at fixed hours. So therefore praying at its correct time, this is absolutely essential.

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

Think about this. Obviously, there is a beginning time and an ending time of the Salah. So you can pray in that time at any time. There is not haram to pray a little bit later, but the question is a question of attitude. Ask yourself this question. Allah said in this hoorah for a little mousseline, Alladhina, home and Zara Ahimsa Hoon.

00:01:02--> 00:01:07

And as a word to those mousseline Word to those who pray a curse on those who pray

00:01:09--> 00:01:17

he's not saying the curse on those who don't pray thing of Gods on those who pray who do what who delay their Salah

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

why is that?

00:01:24--> 00:01:32

Think about that why is that I can understand if it's a curse on those who don't pray we're here is somebody who is rejecting Salah on your understand here I'm praying

00:01:34--> 00:02:02

this applies to those people. It doesn't apply to somebody who you are not able to pray at the right time and therefore you know you are when can I pray? When can I pray and then immediately you can pray you pray as soon as you're able to pray hamdulillah Inshallah, there's no problem with that. I am talking about those people who delay Salah deliberately. I'm watching a football match time for Salah Hara Salah al Falah here the other time for Salah has happened is an old order, Finland is bad finish last moments you know this is the game ball

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

or some other thing like this.

00:02:08--> 00:02:13

We will say every other month anyhow arrow time Hana putting guys in the

00:02:15--> 00:02:16


00:02:19--> 00:02:29

this attitude is an attitude of disdain and disrespect for Allah subhanaw taala diligent and that's why Allah's word there is saying that if this is your attitude, then

00:02:31--> 00:02:40

concerns that people want to such people who have this attitude towards Salah where they deliberately delay it as if it is something which is unimportant.

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

The Saba is to run for Salah

00:02:47--> 00:02:58

I just got a villa says that Rasulullah Salam would visiting with us and you know we would be laughing and so on and if genuine family you know being nice to one another.

00:02:59--> 00:03:06

And then she said he would hear the other and it would be like he does not recognize anybody else.

00:03:07--> 00:03:11

He would become like a total stranger as if he doesn't recognize us anymore.

00:03:12--> 00:03:13

As soon as he or the other

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

because the name of Allah subhanaw taala has been mentioned.

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

So the focus completely now is on on the agenda.

00:03:24--> 00:03:27

This is the meaning of being careful with the

00:03:30--> 00:03:30

time of Salah.

00:03:32--> 00:03:48

Now what is the benefit of Salah Allah subhanaw taala said guru near guru calm watch guru really well thought for own Yeah Are you loving monastery nobody slavery was Salah in Allah Hama sabe read

00:03:49--> 00:03:54

Allah subhanaw taala della de la rosette, see the number of benefits.

00:03:56--> 00:04:02

The most critical the greatest honor which Allah has said, You remember me I will remember you.

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

In your heart is your Guzzi. Allah subhanaw taala said when my slave remembers me within himself, I remember him within myself. When my when my slave remembers me in a gathering, I remember him in a gathering which is better than his gallery

00:04:26--> 00:04:59

pasqualoni At school, you will remember we I remember you. So the greatest benefit of Salah this does not desire is not restricted to Salah alone. Desired refers to the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala in any form that we do. So whether it is simply saying is one of our hamdulillah Allahu Akbar Allah Allah, Allah Allah or whichever way or sending salatu salam ala entrevista Salah which is also liquor or gatherings like this insha Allah which are purely and only for the purpose of pleasing Allah subhanaw taala to learn about our deen all of these kinds of things and always

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

The and definitely it includes salah

00:05:04--> 00:05:16

the first biggest and greatest honor is that Allah subhanho wa Taala remembers us by name on his Arsh with the Makara Boone with the greatest of the melodica who are surrounding the ash.

00:05:19--> 00:05:21

And then Allah subhanaw taala says,

00:05:22--> 00:05:32

Therefore, make sugar of this Be thankful to this and do not be ungrateful. Was Coronavirus, thankful, be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala and do not be ungrateful.

00:05:34--> 00:06:03

We need to be thankful to Allah Samantha for so many things, but obviously in this case, the number one thing that we need to be thankful dollars $1 for is the fact that Allah subhanaw taala is remembering us. Allah subhanho wa Taala is taking our name, Allah subhanaw taala is remembering us. This is something to be hugely hugely thankful to Allah subhanaw taala for what does this actually mean tell me it means tell me something if somebody whose name has been taken by Allah subhanaw taala on is ash

00:06:05--> 00:06:07

is that person when it went to Ghana?

00:06:10--> 00:06:32

Obviously provided the person remains on Islam remains a journeyman and dies in a state of women in sha Allah Musa and we have every hope from Allah subhanho wa Taala that this person whose name Allah subhanaw taala would have taken on his church and this is not my construction or why, you know if we go to my imagination or I didn't cook up the story, this is what Allah subhanaw taala himself has said in the Quran and the Hadith.

00:06:34--> 00:06:44

Such a person is that person going to go into Jannah no insha Allah that person will be forgiven inshallah this person will get definitely go to Jana. This is the value of one Salah

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

one dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

So what must we do?

00:06:53--> 00:07:07

We are grateful to all those words and it was go really well at the crew and then second benefit yeah you're Latina Armando star you know be somebody was salam. All you believe take the help of Sabah and salah.

00:07:09--> 00:07:19

Yes, true Salah and all its honor and glory and benefit on the Day of Judgment after I die but today I have a need today I have something that I need.

00:07:21--> 00:07:30

I need the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Nevada. What must I do Allah's rather I said, make your full effort and then stand in Salah.

00:07:33--> 00:07:43

ask Allah to monitor your nose in our monastery you know, he's there you know mean meaning. Take these Dianna take the help of discovery or salah.

00:07:45--> 00:08:10

And then Allah subhanaw taala says something which is even more wonderful. In Allah ma Savarin Allah did not say take the help of someone salah I will give you what you need know if Allah subhanaw taala said had said take the help of our Salah and I will give you what you need, I will fulfill your need. Inshallah. This is good Ananda Allah. But Allah did not say that Allah said Verily Allah is with the slavery. Allah is with you.

00:08:12--> 00:08:16

I've said this many times before there is a huge the world of difference

00:08:17--> 00:08:25

between the king saying I will give you what you need, and the same king saying I am with you.

00:08:28--> 00:08:31

I will give you what you need is restricted to what you need.

00:08:32--> 00:08:35

But when the king says I am with you, there is no restriction.

00:08:37--> 00:08:46

There is three restriction is the power and boundary of the kings might and wealth and power and authority. In the case of Allah subhanho Daraa

00:08:47--> 00:09:04

who al Malik will Hakuna ilaha illa who are Ebola shield Karim, there is no limit to his treasures. There is no limit to his order. There is no limit to his power. There is no limit to his authority, there is no limit to what you can do. We have Annamaya Shah, while you're hakama horrid,

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

he can order anything he wants. He can do whatever he likes.

00:09:12--> 00:09:27

And this one is a in Allah Marsh I believe in Allah Hamas. Allah was when it was in a no in Allah Hamas slavery. Were really and truly And surely Allah subhanaw taala is with the people who have summer

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

my brother and sisters is very, very important for us to be thankful and to continuously thank Allah subhanaw taala and this is what really and surely and truly we must do when he's done in Salah. The first thing that we should do before we make the knee of the Salah and so on is to thank Allah subhanaw taala and zeal hamdulillah or Bill Allah. Allah you gave me the topic you

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

gave me the ability. You gay, you taught me how to do it. You created a place for me where I can do this in safety.

00:10:09--> 00:10:17

Think about all those countries where literally a Muslim has to play with his life to offer to regatta of Salah.

00:10:19--> 00:10:36

If a man has a beard is thrown into prison, if a woman is wearing a hijab, she's thrown into prison. I'm not fantasizing. There are countries like this in the world. As we speak, there are countries like this one in this world, where if a Muslim fast in Ramadan is thrown into prison

00:10:38--> 00:10:40

if a person goes to the masjid, he goes to jail.

00:10:42--> 00:10:50

Yet they go to the masjid. Yet the women wear hijab yet the men try to keep their beards as far as possible, yet they follow the deen of Allah subhanaw taala

00:10:51--> 00:11:08

that Hamdulillah you and I live in a place where not only is there no punishment for following the deen of Allah subhanaw taala you get the if you do the right thing, people the right thinking people the good people actually praise you.

00:11:09--> 00:11:11

But your problem is that praise has no value for you.

00:11:15--> 00:11:22

Seriously, ask yourself this question that praise has no value for you the praise of good people has no value for you.

00:11:23--> 00:11:34

You want the brains of those who are disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala. So you go and you shave your beard and you take off your jobs and you won't pray on time and you do all kinds of nonsense to get the praise of all those cool people

00:11:37--> 00:11:40

the place to be cool is on the Day of Judgment not here

00:11:43--> 00:11:46

what is the good of being cool here and being very hot there.

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

Please get get get these priorities right.

00:11:55--> 00:12:02

I've said this a million times before no matter what you do, you will always have friends. Friends don't go away no matter what you do.

00:12:05--> 00:12:12

If you wake up one morning lying drunk in your own vomit in a drain there will be somebody who will be your friend because he also will be lying next to you in the same orbit.

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

Because both of you got drunk together the previous night.

00:12:17--> 00:12:44

And if you wake up in the morning and you stand praying the hedges in the masjid you will also have somebody standing there praying with you. Because you heard those friends also, you will have friends no matter what you do. Don't you think drug addicts have friends? They got plenty of it. That's how you get into drugs in the first place because of friends. Don't you think people who smoke cigarettes are friends? Don't you think people who are fornicating? And who are you know dancing all night or what? Drunk or thieves don't you think thieves our friends our entire parliament is will have never

00:12:48--> 00:12:56

everybody's got friends. Your question is what kind of friends do you want? What kind of friends are beneficial to you think about that.

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

Don't just just friends.

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

Look for people who are good in this world and who will take you with them when they go on the Day of Judgment they will be your they will still remain your friends

00:13:14--> 00:13:30

and that's why we must tanglers Ronaldson for good company for the ability to worship Him or the opportunity to worship Him. So when you stand for Salah Hangul was rather than hamdulillah or blurry yellow you gave me the opportunity to pray and then you make your near that then you pray.

00:13:31--> 00:13:48

And as we see from the sight of God Rahim, Allah subhanaw taala said ways that as an Arab Bogum lie in Chicago to La didn't want to incur for tominaga Villa Shadi and remember when you're up, proclaimed, and announced, that if you give thanks if you are thankful, I will give you more of my blessings.

00:13:49--> 00:14:12

We pray and we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala will give us more info and more concentration and dedication in the next salah the Saba This is also the how do I know if if a good action of buying has been accepted as a result of JD Vernalis where the likes and action of yours He will give you have to do it again.

00:14:16--> 00:14:30

So alhamdulillah you pray saddle Fajr in the masjid, Allah is rather like that. So it gives you opportunity to praise Allah who are also in the masjid he likes that he gives you as are also the budget and hamdulillah the Sahaba used to take this as a meter.

00:14:31--> 00:14:39

The difference between us and the Sahaba there are millions of differences but one of the differences is that they never did things mechanically.

00:14:40--> 00:14:43

Robotic No, thoughtfully.

00:14:45--> 00:14:58

We hear this hadith Salah where he said If Allah accepts a deed, he will give you the toffee. Do that again. Right. So now what happens? I prayed the local version of the masjid but the more time I could not go to the masjid

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

So what must I do? What do we do normally? You do nothing. Yeah. Okay. So it

00:15:07--> 00:15:12

loads right in double. So it didn't happen. What actually happened?

00:15:14--> 00:15:44

What actually should happen is we should get worried to say why is it that I did not get the trophy to pray Serratos czar in the masjid when the Prophet Salah salem said he will accept one Salah he will give you the opportunity to do the same thing again, if you accept one sadaqa if you accept one good deed applies to all good deeds, he will give you the opportunity to do that same good deed again, I did not get the opportunity second time so that means maybe my previous one something was wrong with it. So immediately I make Toba and CLI I

00:15:45--> 00:15:54

you know, contrite and I'm ashamed of this and please forgive me and please allow me into your house. This is what I used to do.

00:15:55--> 00:16:15

This what has nslm said if guests come to your house, Allah subhanaw taala if Allah is pleased, he will get guest your house he people will come to your place they will eat with you and so on. And so what is baraka for you, the Sahaba used to come to us I live in habitat comes to Me says Allah and he said yeah, so the three days have passed no guest has come is Allah displeased with me. What did I do wrong

00:16:20--> 00:16:57

then was a living thing for them. It was not a dead bunch of rituals that you know you finish this and colors. Goodbye now I you know I'm king on my own life. No, it was a living thing they used it. That is why they had power. That is why they had power. That is the reason why when something they wanted something they have stood in Salah and ask Allah Subhana Allah and they will get it Salah was the to me I want to I want to sign up with somebody was Allah Allah said ask and take the help of Surah Alhamdulillah I've got a I've got an issue I stand and make raka Salah and I pray to Allah is rockin ask Allah. O Allah give me this

00:17:02--> 00:17:05

I mentioned this story many times before but hamdulillah the beautiful stories

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

as a habit game to gain back from the masjid

00:17:11--> 00:17:15

and that is why get us some food Jesus there is nothing in the house.

00:17:18--> 00:17:21

So what does he do? He goes back to the masjid

00:17:24--> 00:17:26

he makes dua he comes back home

00:17:29--> 00:17:32

and he asked his wife as anything comes you know nothing.

00:17:33--> 00:17:35

Now what does he do? He goes back to the masjid

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

he goes back to the masjid

00:17:40--> 00:17:43

he prays another door I got make some more

00:17:44--> 00:17:49

now when he comes back his wife says something strange is happening. He said what

00:17:51--> 00:17:52

she said the

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

the motor unit

00:17:56--> 00:18:11

with Jackie will say what you grind grain with these two grain barley with this. So it's two stones with you move like this. So she said that thing is moving by itself. And there is barley flour, which is coming out of it.

00:18:15--> 00:18:19

These are people who are the man she didn't freak out and run. She's had a good hunger Allah is giving us

00:18:22--> 00:18:36

so what did she do? She's a geezer. What did you do? She said, whatever we had in the house or whatever utensils or containers were there in the house, I filled all of them. But this is not stopping this keeps going. So this Avi

00:18:38--> 00:18:41

rather learn how we know these are the end of the day they are human beings.

00:18:42--> 00:18:48

So like any other man, you know, men are mechanical more. So he wanted to see the mechanics of how does this thing work?

00:18:49--> 00:18:52

So he went to try to open it to see where it stopped.

00:18:55--> 00:18:56

But imagine his state.

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

So you ran to the Mr. Seller.

00:19:01--> 00:19:04

This was an assumption what happened? He said yes, well, this is what happened.

00:19:05--> 00:19:07

I made I had there was no food in the house.

00:19:08--> 00:19:25

And I came to the masjid I made dua and this is what happened to me. Now, what do you do? He said, No, I also I opened that thing to see. And I said if you had lifted if you had not touched it, that thing would have drowned and flour would have come out of it till the Day of Judgment.

00:19:29--> 00:19:37

I'm not talking about Jana. I'm not talking about you know, I'm talking about your daily things what you need on a daily basis.

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

And as we Malika vellano

00:19:43--> 00:19:45

There was a man who owed him some money.

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

So this man came, he owed him the money for a long, long time. He didn't pay it back and so on. And so the man has also never asked him finally one day the man came to him and he said, I don't have the money but I have this

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

Use of land which is in such a place so I'm giving you that as payment for what I owe which I find no problem.

00:20:08--> 00:20:26

Then he called his servant and he said go see this lovely this wherever the land was right in some Boondocks, in Medina, these are go see the land the man when there is other and he said, We came back and he said this place is barren there is nothing there it's just flat land and dry like a bone nothing will grow there

00:20:27--> 00:20:30

to sell an asset, which

00:20:31--> 00:20:36

he put it to regatta salah, he made dua, then he said to the man goes to the lawn again.

00:20:39--> 00:20:45

The man when he came back, he said This is very strange is that what he said? It has rained exactly on your land.

00:20:47--> 00:20:49

He said all around is dry.

00:20:50--> 00:20:54

He said where is only on your land and there is a depression is filled up with water.

00:20:58--> 00:21:01

day to ask these stories, they seem strange.

00:21:03--> 00:21:06

But remember one thing, Allah is the same.

00:21:07--> 00:21:17

The number is the same, the Kitab is the same. The heavens are the same. The earth is the same. The laws that govern all of this are the same. The only thing which has changed is these hands.

00:21:19--> 00:21:29

The hands of the Sahaba were never raised in the disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala and that is why when they were raised to ask Allah Allah gives them
