Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Shara philam BIA, you will mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, the Sleeman Kathira and Kathira Mavado.
My neighbors and sisters,
the second write of Allah subhanho data on us is Salah, to establish Salah not just to pray, not to offer Salah not to
not to do Salah not to
you know whatever word we use. The word used in the Quran is a comet is Salah, okay masala established Salah
a question I asked myself and I request you to ask yourself is what is our true attitude towards Allah? I'm not talking about those who don't pray. That's a different category altogether. I'm talking about those who do pray and who do pray and who pray regularly. What is our attitude towards Allah?
And the way to judge that attitude is to check how do you feel after you have finished salah?
Do you feel a self sense of relief say okay, this is All Hallows I finished? I'm done. Now I'm free to do whatever I want to do. Is that the feeling? The feeling of having
I don't want to use a word like phrase like dumped the burden but you know, that kind of feeling that this is over? So I'm happy it's over? Is that the feeling? Or is the feeling that
I lost something? Meaning I have done this. But now I have to wait for a long time to come back into the presence of Allah subhana wa
Another one is, may Allah protect us from missing any of our Salawat but if we do happen to miss a Salah because we overslept or something happened, what is the feeling after that?
Is it Yeah, okay, so it's a mistake, I made a mistake I'm going to do cover that's over? Or is it a sense of loss, a sense of bereavement, a sense of grief, a sense of deep sadness to say, how Allah How did this happen? How did I not wake up for some of the Fajr? What is it that I did
the previous night? What is it that prevented me prevented this from happening? Even though the Imam is not a matter I have to lie? He said that Allah subhanaw taala prevented me from the hijab for one month, because of a sin that I committed
the surface that sort of sat here in the one of the the scholars,
they considered not praying, and we're not even talking about the further we're talking about our novel, not praying or, or not praying regularly, those no afield, and especially with the Hadoop, they consider that as a warning from Allah geladeira to say get your act together, because you are being prevented from going into the presence of Allah subhanaw taala
my brother sister, let's try and understand this thing. A lot. That I said I was with him and I shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Subhana Allah the surah br boo de la la mina al Masjid Al haram Elon Musk G the Ocho saw Elon Musk via the app also levy Vairocana Hola. Hola, Maria, who mean Tina, in who was me on balsley instead of Teresa the first one but Israel the first hire Allah's word that is a Glorified and Exalted is He jell o jell O Allah, who took Islam or Hamas Allah Allah Allah who only was able to sell them for a journey by night, from Al Masjid Al haram in Makkah to the Father's mosque, Al Masjid Al Aqsa, the surroundings of which we have blessed in order
that we may show him, Mohamed salah, Our Ayat, verily He Allah subhanho data is the oil here and the all SEER he is the one who hears everything and he is the one who sees everything.
It was one of the most difficult periods of the blessed life of Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Salam when his lab called him to himself
alive in his normal human form, and caused him
him to be transported from Makkah to Jerusalem and from there up into the heavens, one after the other, until he, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was before Allah subhanaw taala in a way that Allah Subhana Allah knows best. It is not for us to speculate about what Allah subhanaw taala chose not to explain to us. What is clear, however, is what happened because of this miraculous momentous Journey and Ascension. Allah subhanho wa Taala order, honored his messenger Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and through him he Jalla Jalla who honored the OMA of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by giving us the best and highest possible gift, the permission to come into His presence.
Gela DeLallo whenever we have the need to do so, we know the story of Allah Allah, Allah Azza wa Mirage, and how Allah subhanaw taala made Salah obligatory 50 times a day Rasulullah Salah was delighted
that Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted him to be in his presence every half hour. You must know love to understand this. May Allah subhanaw taala fill our hearts with love for him geladeira Lu and for his Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But when Rasul Allah says, Allah met Musa alayhis salam on his return from the presence of Allah subhanho wa taala. Musa Islam advised him to request Allah subhanaw taala to reduce the number of times because Musa alayhis salam said Your people will not be able to do it.
What is it a Musa alayhis. Salam knew?
Then it's viral. Imagine look at this because he knew his people the money is right. And he said you have people who are like my people, they will not be able to do this. So ask Allah to reduce it. Now this happened multiple times until it came to five times a day. Musa Islam still advised sorceress Allah to ask Allah for a reduction even of this. But also salaam refused. Because he said I feel very shy to go back to Allah subhanaw taala asking him to reduce
a gift that he gave an honor that he gave.
Allah subhanaw taala infinite generosity declared that door the number of times had been reduced from 50 to five, the reward would remain the same, which is the reward for 50 prayers would be given for five prayers.
Now, let us reflect therefore, if Salah as I mentioned is if it's a bird, if it's a burden, is it a duty, it's an honors responsibility? Or is it an honor and a privilege of being a Muslim? What is our attitude towards Salah
to be a Muslim means to have an access card to the Darbar to the court to the audience chamber of Allah subhanho wa Taala to stand in His glorious presence to praise and thank him and to ask him for anything we need or want, knowing that he sees and he hears in the hole who was Samuel Busey.
Salah is our biggest resource, our most potent and powerful tool and weapon, our best asset, but like everything else, we must work on it to strengthen it. The best tool is the one we know how to use. So also salah, which is as powerful as we can make it that happens with thoughtful practice. Allah subhanaw taala gave us a way to contact him and to ask for his help. Allah Subhana Allah said yeah, you will learn I'm going to start you know, the summary was salah, in Allah Hamas sabihin Allah said oil believe seek help
in summer, steadfastness and patience, and a Salah, the Salah, Truly, Allah is with a Sabi, Allah is with the people of patience, even when a Salam understood this and so when he left his wife and infant son in the barren valley of Makkah, he made this dua he's a Rabbana in a scan to mean Luria TB word innovatie V Zara in in the bay tickle Moharram Rob Birna the up masala failure if either Tamina NASCI ahi la him was Zuko. Menoth Amaravati La La homea SquareOne. He said, Oh, our rub. I have made some of my offspring to dwell in an uncomfortable Valley by your sacred house, the Kaaba in order or our rub that they may establish a salah they cover the salah Sala so fill some hearts
among people with love towards them. And Oh Allah, provide them with fruits, so they may give thanks, you bye
Melissa lamb shows his understanding of the importance of Salah as being the head of the matter, which will result in all other matters falling into place. See the order of his dog? What does he ask for first?
Consider his situation, and the situation in which he left his wife and son. And then let's ask ourselves, what we would have asked for if, what would what we would have asked for first? If we were making this door, then then ask, why is it that Melissa lamb did the opposite,
establishing salah before safety before sustenance? Ask why. The first thing that Rasulullah sallallahu did when he made his route to Medina was not to build his own house. But to build the Masjid.
The MBL aim was set up they knew the right order of causality.
The ambi understood the true priority of life, the root route the true priorities in life, because they were the most successful people in the world.
They knew how the world works. And they came to teach us that we need to ask ourselves, what our standards and role models are for success. Our role models The Gambia Alayhis Salam, the prophets and messengers of Allah or are our role models, somebody else?
Even Amara, the Allah anumana rates that rasool Allah Azza wa sallam said, the place of Salah in religion is like the place of the head in the body.
Our data Delano stated, My friend Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam gave me the following advice. Even if you are chopped up and burnt, do not associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala and do not miss your fourth Salah deliberately, Allah will remove his protection from a person who misses his first Salah deliberately.
Abdullah bin kartra The law no reports that Rasulillah Salam said on the Day of Judgment, a slave will be questioned about his prayers first. If his prayers are good, his other deeds will be good also. If his prayers are bad, the other deeds will be bad also, we ask Allah to protect us from this Abdullayev no more on the alarma again reported that Rasul Allah is Allah Salam said a person who misses the afternoon prayer who misses the salah for Azur is like a person whose whole family and all his property have been destroyed.
My brothers sisters, Salah is the same, the differentiator of the believer and it differentiates him from the disbeliever it is as fundamental as that unless rather as a god after me known Alladhina Hoon V Sala to him harsh you're in surah the moment own in the first wioth Allah said successful indeed they have succeeded who the believers, those who established their Salah those who offer their Salah with all solamente and full submissiveness with kosher and follow Allah home V Salah him has you and later the same surah in the ad. Also the movie Oh 910 11 Allah Samantha said, Well Davina whom Allah Sana YT him you have his own, like a homall Worry Thorn and Adina Yadi thornell
for those whom via Holly rune, we ask Allah Swatara for this, Allah said, those these are the people who the momentum and the believers are those who, strictly god, they're five compulsory congregational Salawat, at their fixed hours. These indeed are the inheritors, who shall inherit Alpha those, the highest level in Jannah, they shall dwell there in forever. We ask Allah smart Allah for this.
Allah also differentiated, that is believers. And he said annual Mooji remain ma Salah cocoon feasts occur Carlu love Naku middle Musa Leave about the image remain the polytheists the criminals, that is believers, and they will say to them, what caused you to enter Johanna what caused you to enter hellfire and they will say we will not have those who used to offer their salah. We will not have those who prayed
Rasulillah Salam emphasize the importance of Salah in the strongest terms. What does Ana Abdullah immutable Raida abhi he all Cora Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I had to levy by Nana obey in a home a solar farm and taka taka Guevara Oh Kumbhakarna Lee salat wa salam Abdullah bin Barreda Delano narrated that his father's
Rasul Allah sallam said, the covenant the line the divider the differentiator the distinguishes between us and them, meaning between the Muslims and the non Muslims is Salah. So whoever leaves it, he has committed COFA and this is a sahih Hadith in Sudan underside, Jabra vellano reported that Rasulullah Zahra sallam said Verily between a man and idolatry and unbelief is abandoning the salah Abdullah bin shocky Al Roker Ali,
who's a tabby, he said, The Sahaba have also realized Salam did not consider the abandonment of any good deed to be disbelief, except the abandonment of Salah. And this is in theory, which means that the Sahaba did not consider that a person would become an apostate would leave Islam if we left any of the other good deeds, except salah, meaning if we live salah the Sahaba were agreed upon, that this person has committed cover and this person has left Islam we ask Allah to protect us from that.
My brother and sisters we enter Islam by pronouncing the two Kalamata Annie the two declarations La ilaha illa, Allah Who Mohammadu Rasulullah there is nobody worthy of worship except Allah. And Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is his messenger is the last and final messenger after whom there is no other messenger, Salah is the proof the evidence of belief in this caliber, we bear witness to and give evidence of the first part of the Kalama by our willingness to pray, and to the second part of the karma, by praying in the way taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu sallam,
my brothers sisters, we enter Islam by believing in the Zulu hadith of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada in the
fact that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah, and that only Allah is worthy of worship, and in the result in the messenger ship of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and declaring that in and declaring that in the form of the shahada, and demonstrating our belief by establishing a Salah Islam is not merely a philosophy or an ideology, but it's a practice therefore, there is no such thing as a non practicing Muslim.
That is why as soon as we declare the shahada, Allah subhanaw taala requires that we give evidence of that by our actions, that action. The evidence of our Eman is Salah Allah subhanaw taala did not leave us to decide what constitutes worship, or to worship him in any way that we like. Allah subhanaw taala taught his messenger Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, how he wished to be worshipped. And also Allah is Allah Salam taught us how to do it. The beauty of this is that when we worship, we are not in any doubt about whether what we are doing really works. How beautiful is that? Narrated Marik narrated MyLEAGUE been Hawaii Earth, or the Allahu Anhu we came to Roswell Isola Salem and stayed
with him for 20 days and nights. They were all young, and of about the same age. As soon as salam was very kind and merciful to us. 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, teach them Islam and to order them to do good things. He also mentioned some other things, which I have remembered
as soon as I listen and then added, pray as you have seen me praying Solu Kamara, Ito Mooney lucidly, oh Kumbhakarna li Serato Salam, and when it is time for Salah, one of you should call the other and the oldest of you should lead salah, and this is in Bukhari. This also reiterates the position and importance of Rasulullah Salallahu Salam in Islam, without whose guidance we cannot perform even the most important and basic action in Islam, which is Salah. This is one of the most important proofs of why Vironment law, the revelation that is not decided, but we still revelation and and that refers to the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam,
my brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala would have revealed the entire method of Salah and described it in detail in the Quran, but he did not He taught it to Rasulullah Salah who taught it to us. May Allah subhanaw taala help us to truly appreciate
the position of socialism and the importance of following his sunnah in every aspect of our lives. Reflect on this in all
societies, the priestly class is considered the highest because they are responsible for worship. In Islam, we do not have any clergy of priestly class. But Allah subhanaw taala elevated all humanity and declared that he created us all human beings, only for his worship, those who refuse that degrade themselves, because whatever else they may be doing, other than the worship of Allah can only be less honorable and praiseworthy. Allah Sarah masala Cocina valenza in early Abu and I have not created the Djinn and the humans for anything other than that they should worship Me. Allah subhanaw taala said benefits of Salah we ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to appreciate them. How
tragic to have wealth and still be hungry and beg others for aid when you have direct access to the only one who can help me Allah subhanaw taala Forgive us
our last round that I said Autodromo hiya la campanelle Geeta we were it means Salah in sala Tata and her annual fascia he will Moncure well as the guru Allahu Akbar, Allah Ahuja Rama pasa narrowed you hear this right in the in the Duma for every human in order to compute Allah said recite or Muhammad Salah Salem, what has been revealed to you of the book the Quran, and establish a salah. Verily a Salah prevents from an fascia prevents from all great sins of every kind and all Moncure every kind of wicked deed and rebelliousness and remembering of you by Allah. What a digger like been remembering of you by Allah meaning ALLAH remembering you is greater than you remembering
Allah, Allah data, obviously, plus rather remembering us is greater than we remembering Allah subhanaw taala and Allah knows what you do Allah Who Yama Yama mataas now
in a hadith in Bukhari and Muslim, I will What are the Allama reported Rasulillah Salam said if there was a river at a person's door, and that person took a bath in it five times a day, would you notice any dirt on him? They said not a trace of dirt would be left Yasser Allah bussola Salim said that is the parable that is example of the five Salawat five prayers by which Allah subhanaw taala removes your sins. Evening Amara Ilan Omar reported Rasul Allah says Allah said Verily, when a slave stands to pray, his sins are placed on top of his head and his shoulders and every time he bows in Rocco or prostrates, ensue, they fall away from him, but wherever there are no reported
and also Lazarus alum said the five prayers Friday to Friday and Ramadan Ramadan Ramadan with XP it will wipe out the sins committed between them. As long as major sins are avoided. We ask Allah to help us to avoid all sins inshallah. This is in a Muslim Javin Abdullah the Allahu Anhu reported Rasulillah Salam said the key to Jana is Salah, and the key to Salah is although Abdullah amor him the Aza Viola anima narrated one day or solos are seldom talked about prayers about Salat. He said the salah of a person who performs
the five daily prayers without missing will be brightness, evidence in his favor and salvation from him for him, salvation for him on the day of judgment. A person who does not performed five daily prayers properly will be with Qarun or hammer or fear out and obey will kind of
Ross May Allah protect us from this surah Salah salem said Allah Subhana Allah has obligated five daily prayers. Whoever performs them excellently with Lulu whoever performs excellently, their voodoo and prayers, the Salawat praise the Salawat at the proper times, completes his Rocco's who knows and has special and has this person has a promise from Allah, that he will forgive him JELA Dylan, and whoever does not do that has no promise from Allah subhanaw taala he may be forgiven or Allah may punish him. Let me repeat that as soon as I celebrate Allah has obligated five prayers, whoever excellently performs their widow, praise Allah at the proper times, completes their record
Sue and has also has a promise from Allah, that he Jalla Jalla Jalla Jalla who will forgive that person and whosoever does not do that has no promise from Allah subhanho wa taala. He may be forgiven or he may be punished. Rosa CERAM said when any one of you is engaged in Salah. He is holding an intimate conversation, which is Rob geladeira. Who may Allah grant us this sense of being in
touch with Allah subhanho wa Taala In conclusion I want to say my brother and sister that the Sahaba considered Salah to be a great gift of Allah subhanaw taala which it is. Someone asked the servant of Abdullah of nabasa Allah to tell him about the daily schedule of his master. The seven said he waits from one Salah for the next. And between the two he recites Quran Abdullah Abdullah Basa Delana. Ma was a businessman. He did this
reciting Quran and waiting for Salah some bit for the salah while doing his business. Today we give business as an excuse to delay or leave salah. Let us reflect on this and repent. That is ask Allah's forgiveness. I ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant as the sweetness of Salah and to fill our hearts with love for Salah and to grant us dedication and concentration during Salah and to accept our God and make our salah, a light for us in this life in our graves and in the akhira inshallah Robin has Ramadan husana Willem de fille on our ohana learnupon Cassidy Baba Athena for dunya Hassan Otto Filipino after the astronaut okay now Lebanon was Allah Allah Allah will Karim Allah Allah He
