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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. In Al Hamdulillah salat wa salam O Allah sherfield Amir Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, woman, voila, but

00:00:13--> 00:00:24

my brothers sisters, we are on day two of the session on Salah. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to cause this to be a means of benefit for us all.

00:00:26--> 00:00:29

Because Salah is

00:00:30--> 00:00:38

not just something which is important, but it is the most important thing in our lives.

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

I explained to you in detail yesterday with

00:00:44--> 00:00:53

all the proofs for saying this. And so I will not repeat that today. But just very briefly.

00:00:56--> 00:01:04

We need air we need food, we need money, we need a home and so on and so forth. All of that is restricted to the life of this world.

00:01:06--> 00:01:13

Some of it is not even some of it or not even things that will last us the entire duration of this life.

00:01:15--> 00:01:18

We don't need them for the whole duration of our summer, early summer later.

00:01:20--> 00:01:32

But Salah is something that we need for the life of the Hereafter, which is forever and we need it for success in this life for the entire duration of his life.

00:01:34--> 00:01:45

A person who does not have Salah meaning meaning a person who does not have a man does not have access to the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala in this life and will have no access to Jenna in the next life.

00:01:46--> 00:01:51

And obviously, there is no comparison in terms of importance between salah and anything else.

00:01:53--> 00:01:59

When I say things like we need Salah I'm not saying this is a nice thing to have and you know

00:02:01--> 00:02:24

it's a plug in your life or no I'm saying we need it and we need it at a level of force that I simply cannot possibly emphasize enough when I say that it might seem like strange, because we are not used to using Salah in this life to solve our problems.

00:02:26--> 00:02:34

More or less either masala used to say ages namazi todoroki name is Aki una mas to me. Because I

00:02:36--> 00:02:48

used to say that this Allah in this life the quality of our Salah is this derived his life, which can't seem to get you two pieces of bread. How is this going to help you when you have to cross the syrup.

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

So it is essential for us to

00:02:54--> 00:02:58

learn how to pray properly. And then to pray properly.

00:03:00--> 00:03:02

These two things are absolutely critical.

00:03:04--> 00:03:10

But then if you see and ask yourself, How much time do you spend in learning how to play

00:03:12--> 00:03:15

and not because this is some, you know, great

00:03:16--> 00:03:27

body of knowledge that you have to pass. First of all, you have to pass a tough exam in order to enter university and then you have to be in the university for 25 years before they before you will know nothing.

00:03:30--> 00:03:34

All you need to do is to go to somebody who knows and there are a dime a dozen.

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

They're not even a dime a dozen because they're free.

00:03:40--> 00:03:43

Go to somebody and say please teach me how to break that's it.

00:03:45--> 00:03:46

But we don't do that.

00:03:48--> 00:03:51

Even if somebody's willing to teach you don't want to come what to do.

00:03:53--> 00:03:58

Like we saw yesterday I asked people how many of you know the four eyes of Vasa

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

and deliberately I have no desire to humiliate anybody. So I don't I don't tell people no show of hands or anything I know I know what will happen.

00:04:09--> 00:04:15

You will either lie or you will show you will show up your hand and others look like they don't. That is not my intention anyway.

00:04:16--> 00:04:30

And then I said How long will it take? I said take a stopwatch and I will teach you It took all of 15 seconds. One five to learn the variety. And that's only because I was trying to talk a little slowly so you understand.

00:04:32--> 00:04:43

But that 15 seconds you do not have for yourself obviously this seriously are we need to ask ourselves this question. I'm not asking for anything are hungry. I need nothing we take nothing

00:04:44--> 00:04:52

for yourself. And what is the cost of that the cost of that is you are living your entire life in a state of impurity of

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

what what sin does is what says doesn't mean you don't have 15 seconds to spare for yourself.

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

To live in a state of purity, where you are rebar that are accepted, you are accepted, you are protected from all kinds of influences and so on and so forth. There is Baraka in your house, you have no you don't have 15 seconds to spare to for yourself to get that. I mean, how tragic is that? Tell me.

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

And just to rub that in,

00:05:26--> 00:05:38

how much time do you spend in doing stuff? I'm not even talking about the stuff that you drive you spend doing stuff, which is clearly wrong. Let's not worry about that. But even stuff which is not wrong, but which is a waste of time.

00:05:42--> 00:05:43

How much time do we spend,

00:05:45--> 00:05:45

by including all my

00:05:46--> 00:05:50

neighbors and friends here who are you know, sort of greatly interested in football,

00:05:51--> 00:05:55

which is fine, Angela. But if you're playing the game,

00:05:56--> 00:05:59

but if you are spending your time watching the game or a TV screen,

00:06:01--> 00:06:14

that add best add absolutely number one top best that is a waste of time, it is something that you will hopefully you won't get punished for it. But definitely, it's something that you will regret very, very badly when you meet a loss of another.

00:06:15--> 00:06:23

and at worst, if it ends up making you misaligned ends up making you in a state of love, then you are asking for punishment.

00:06:25--> 00:06:47

Go play the game. Very, very good thing to do. Absolutely. I recommend football to everyone and his wife, go play the game, go onto the field, fall down, scrape your knees, learn teamwork, learn leadership, learn sharing, learn passing, right, good for your health, everything else, we're sitting in front of the television, all you're doing is turning into a potato and you're watching that thing and and what.

00:06:48--> 00:07:05

And this is the benign part of it. I'm not even talking about other stuff, and so on and so forth. So we spend hours and hours and hours just do a rough calculation, you know how much time you spend, just do a rough calculation for yourself. It might have a salutary effect one hopes.

00:07:07--> 00:07:24

Do a rough calculation for yourself and say how many hours did I spend doing things which are neutral value neutral, there is no benefit in it, there is no harm in it, but it is useless where we will value neutral is useless. Rajaratnam said if one day is not better than the next day, then you always think of time.

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

He said for a Muslim

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

each day must be better than the previous day.

00:07:32--> 00:07:42

These are the standards set by the province. And instead of I'm saying I won't say leave them with that those are the standards were supposed to follow. But I'm saying just as a you know, taste for that

00:07:44--> 00:07:52

is ask yourself and say that I am spending so many hours doing something which is at best useless.

00:07:53--> 00:08:06

And then when there is an opportunity to learn something which is clearly absolutely critical to learn, which is something which is going to benefit you in this life. And the next life inshallah was that

00:08:09--> 00:08:11

you don't have, you don't have an hour, you don't have two hours.

00:08:12--> 00:08:14

Even when the thing is being given to you for free.

00:08:16--> 00:08:26

Your football doesn't come for you. You're paying Netflix, you're paying the Cable Guy, you're paying the electricity guy, God knows who you are paying paying all that and getting useless. They use uselessness.

00:08:28--> 00:08:46

Really, we have to ask ourselves this question, as all of what I'm saying is not for the people who are here, because you're here. This is for those who will see this video and they think they have done a great job because they are now watching the video, I will guarantee you there are I think probably over over 1000 hours of my lectures on the net.

00:08:48--> 00:08:49

Probably that mark maybe more.

00:08:53--> 00:09:15

And if you look at the YouTube and Google statistics, there are 1000s of people viewing them. But you know, and I know that viewing them means what what what is Google counting? If someone clicks on it, it counted as one. Whether the fellow spent 10 seconds on it or he spent or you watch the whole lecture we don't know. And I can guarantee you they're not watching them.

00:09:19--> 00:09:22

We I know how much patience I have to sit and watch something for for an hour and a half.

00:09:24--> 00:09:26

I never do I have never

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

I like to read so I read I don't write on what lectures

00:09:31--> 00:09:35

we like in hours and hours. Watching lectures is not my thing.

00:09:38--> 00:09:41

So when there is an opportunity take make use of the opportunity.

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

So yesterday we covered a whole bunch of stuff, all leading to the perfection of Salah we looked at all the issues of the Hara, we looked at all the muscle and so on and so forth. We looked at the issue of the importance of Salah itself why it's important

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

That we covered yesterday today we will continue with that and then we look at supply itself we will look at Salah by Gemma we look at issues of intimate,

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

leading salah and so on and so forth inshallah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this a means of prayer and Baraka for us all inshallah.

00:10:21--> 00:10:44

Now, yesterday we mentioned this in passing which is the issue of sutra which is to keep a barrier in front of you, so, that somebody does not cross in front of you while you are praying. Now, I will say the coda delanco narrated from resourcers Ella, who said when one prays, you should

00:10:46--> 00:10:50

let him pray towards the sutra, let him face or put a barrier in front of himself.

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

And let him pray close to it, meaning that this barrier must be at the at the point where you make sudduth. So, if you're spraying here, if we're standing here, don't put the barrier far away, put it at the place where you are making pseudo and so that when somebody doesn't pass

00:11:10--> 00:11:11

in front of you and

00:11:12--> 00:11:18

use a sutra, even if it is an arrow, so even if it's a small thing doesn't matter, but use it put it that

00:11:19--> 00:11:25

Sam has prayed. There are there are there are variations to say that he prayed.

00:11:26--> 00:11:36

Facing with a camel saddle. He made his camel sit down and he prayed in no this is a Ben is playing outside. And at home when he was praying.

00:11:37--> 00:12:12

He had say the ISIS avellana she was sleeping so he would pray she would turn over there on the other side and he would pray with her in front like that as the sutra and of course rossana once removed his turban and put his turban there as the sutra this way I mean any anything, whatever is convenient for you, you can do that. But do place a sutra now when and this applies to all Salah. So it's when you are traveling when you are at home wherever this applies to all services which are done

00:12:14--> 00:12:54

individually or which way you're not following the one where you're following the Imam the Imam must have his own sutra and usually obviously the man is in the front so he has the he has the wall of the Muslims where he is break or if it's any mom, if you are doing a mama if you are making Gemma outside somewhere, then make sure that the Imam has something in front of him and then the Imam sutra is enough for the whole Jamaat. So sometimes sometimes you might find for example that in mustard, sometimes we find this and turabian czar in the harem you see it all the time but in our massages here, the whole budget is packed and then you will find that maybe somebody lost their

00:12:54--> 00:13:31

widow or something happened to them and then they will leave and they will walk in front of the whole surface standing here. The person walks in front and goes out and a lot of people have a lot of sometimes there are a lot of issues confusion somebody tries to stop don't do all that there's no problem your Salah is perfectly valid, absolutely no problem. The Imam sutra is your sutra this person can walk in front of you no problem at all. So if you do you happen to break your window or whatever the reason might be if you need to go Please go ahead. Just step out in front and walk out walk out there is no problem. But this applies only to Salah by Yama. So in Juma while the Juma

00:13:31--> 00:14:10

Salah is going on this is possible but once the Juma Salah is over, when people are standing and praying sooner or nephila, whatever it is, then each person must have his own sutra and you must pass beyond that sutra, not in between. That's why in this budget you would have noticed I always tell people, this last row there, the chairs move all the chairs forward so people can pass behind you. Now this consideration we'll look at that in a minute. But this consideration for others, especially when you are in the masjid is a very critical part of Islamic manners. right this is we'll we'll come to that inshallah. But do keep that also in mind. So this is the issue of the sutra

00:14:10--> 00:14:20

always do that. And like I said yesterday, there is no need for you to drag chairs here and there. And you know, people literally sort of walk around with chairs there's no need for that just put anything in front that is more than enough.

00:14:22--> 00:14:36

A very very, very important thing there is a lecture of mine called What is it called? Or any tala Yeah, there is a letter a lecture of mine which has or will send you with this thing called earn any dollar which we did here was in this budget, I think one of the relevant

00:14:38--> 00:14:53

eating and earning halaal is absolutely critically important for the acceptance of your Salah and acceptance of that. It affects the quality of worship. It makes it good or it makes it bad depending on whether you're eating and earning

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

anything what is the safe thing to do whatever is doubtful limits

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

Now Verizon said leave the doubtful for that which is not doubtful.

00:15:05--> 00:15:22

So anything that is doubtful whether it is in earnings or whether it's in food, anything that you have a doubt in clarify the route until you clarify that are donated. And once you clarify the route of course, you know what the situation is, but when you are doubtful usual problems as far as our food is concerned is with chickens.

00:15:23--> 00:15:41

Because we factory process chickens which please understand I've said this a million times factory process chicken is not halal. Unless you have specific information about that particular factory that it is being hand slaughtered. Unless you have that information do not go by the LLC, the LLC means nothing.

00:15:43--> 00:15:59

So even if it comes with a valid stamp, it is not valid. Don't fool yourself and say well, you know after all the stamp is there What can I do? No, it is your body. Now vrslcm said any if a haram morsel goes into the body and becomes part of the body, the fire of jahannam is YG on this body.

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

So save yourself.

00:16:02--> 00:16:40

The second issue is aerated drinks Coke and Pepsi and stuff, which is clearly my point about Coke and Pepsi is very I don't say that it has alcohol is that my point is it has ingredients which are not on the label, right? They have a secret formula that says this is so and imagine this is the hypocrisy of our world today. Where anything that you manufacture any food item that you manufacture by law, you are supposed to put the ingredients on the label yes or no. So why is that not applied to Coke and Pepsi? They get away by saying we have a secret ingredient What secret ingredient?

00:16:42--> 00:16:56

How can it be secret when your law says that it cannot be secret that all the ingredients must show on the label? This is the law of the land? How come you allow major huge corporations to get away with this nonsense to say we have a secret ingredient?

00:16:57--> 00:17:15

So my point is okay, if that secret ingredient is the water of Zamzam. I don't care about you didn't tell me that. So as far as I'm concerned, as a Muslim, there is something in this drink, which I don't know. Now tell me is that Helen O'Hara for you? You don't need to be a Mufti for this.

00:17:18--> 00:17:24

Right? If I give you this glass of water, I say, Well, you know, please drink it. But there is something in it which I won't tell you there is a secret ingredient.

00:17:26--> 00:17:31

You might still be good because you know me personally, but I'm saying supposing I'm a stranger. I'm not even Muslim.

00:17:32--> 00:17:51

As a Muslim, if you have a modicum of humor, if you have one grain of emotion in your heart, what will you do? Will you should you drink it? Or should you not regular is very simple. You don't need one great movie and this and that. And, and and chemical analysis reports, simple question as a Muslim, if you are given something to eat or drink, and you do not know what it contains, what will you do?

00:17:54--> 00:18:01

Leave it obviously. Okay. Let me give you a bemani example. Supposing you are allergic to something.

00:18:03--> 00:18:22

Right. And some people are very violently allergic to things or they literally it can be a matter of life and death. If there is an allergen in that thing. And I give you something to drink. Or I say, I'm not sure whether the thing that you are allergic to is in this or not. I'm not saying it is there. I'm not saying it is not there.

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

Will you drink it?

00:18:33--> 00:19:04

Let me give one more example. We go to a restaurant, right? One waiter that tells you say everybody knows you this restaurant. So one waiter that tells you that this thing this thing which you are being given to drink, maybe it might have the thing that you are allergic to it might be there I'm not sure. But it might be there. So one way to tell you, the everybody else's restaurant, including the owner, the chef and all the waiters is a nice Boogeyman No, nothing, absolutely no problem. You can drink it, will you still drink it on me?

00:19:09--> 00:19:15

You will, you will hesitate like hell you will say you know, even if, what if this one guy is right.

00:19:17--> 00:19:56

Now, I can tell you that everybody everybody does know. They also don't know they are saying it is not there. But do they know perfectly? They don't know. Bottom line is what? At the end of the whole thing. If there is a problem, who is going to face it? Not that waiter, not the chef, not the restaurant owner, not the government, not the Prime Minister is me. I am the one who's going to do the dying. If the if the thing has got that allergen in it. I am not taking that chance. I'm not dying of thirst. I've got 10 different alternatives. I don't have to bring this particular thing. You're not talking about a life saving drug which I don't have that I will die or something.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Nothing, nothing, nothing nothing. Instead of this I can bring 10 different

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

No problem.

00:20:02--> 00:20:06

Why must I take that chance? Anyone with any intelligence will do that?

00:20:08--> 00:20:11

So I've given you, Islam

00:20:12--> 00:20:15

example in a non Islamic example take what you want.

00:20:17--> 00:20:29

We'll call this is the whole issue of what has always taken the EMA on Allah subhanho wa Taala has nothing else one do I really am am I going to eat or drink something which will spoil my bothers to Allah subhanaw taala very simple

00:20:37--> 00:20:55

we will. Nevertheless lm said, leave the doubtful for that which is not doubtful, he gave a very beautiful example. He said, it is like a shepherd, who is grazing his flock of sheep, if he goes too close to the boundary of the king, the chances are that some of the sheep will go across the boundary and then the shepherd will be in trouble.

00:20:58--> 00:21:04

So he said the safety of the shepherd lies in staying far away from the boundary of the king.

00:21:05--> 00:21:09

Don't go near that but why do you want to take a chance you want to do something and then

00:21:10--> 00:21:10

stay away.

00:21:12--> 00:21:18

So very, very important if you understand this, that eat and earn halaal and leave everything which is

00:21:20--> 00:21:28

earnings we know perfectly well I don't know. As I said, I don't want to go into the details of the whole lecture of I know that please listen to that lecture. But this is very important for us to understand.

00:21:29--> 00:21:34

Second one is please understand that Salah is for and the Salah is Allah

00:21:37--> 00:21:40

Allah subhanaw taala ordered us Aki busara

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

and those who relies on a Salaam

00:21:44--> 00:21:49

showed us how to make Salah yesterday narrated for you the whole head is related to that.

00:21:51--> 00:22:19

So what you are actually doing is you are following the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now why is Allah Subhana Allah think about this and of course Allah knows best why he did something is my understanding and interpretation. Why is Allah Why did Allah subhanaw taala not simply describe the Salah in detail in so many words in the Quran? Allah subhanaw taala go to reveal five is 10 is the whole surah

00:22:21--> 00:22:28

you know 100 is describing the Salah in detail. salado further should we pray like this, or should we pray like this Allah.

00:22:31--> 00:22:54

Allah, Allah is not submitting his manuscript to an editor to who has a word count. I mean, there's no issue with that, why did Allah not do that? My understanding is that the reason why Allah Subhana Allah did not do that is because he wanted to show and he wants to show the importance of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this day.

00:22:55--> 00:23:11

So therefore, what does Allah Allah do? He gives the hokum and then he tells us that we show them what to do how to do it. So if a person accepts the Hong Kong of Allah Subhana Allah Siracusa lives Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah Allah back I'm ready Allah to pray, how must I pray go as the NaVi.

00:23:13--> 00:23:48

He will show you how to pray. And that's exactly what happened yesterday you heard the whole idea that this is exactly what happened. This was a circumstance alucabond Tony who sadly pray as you have seen me pray, he demonstrated the whole Salah so when we are praying, we are actually following the Sunnah. Now why is this Sunnah, given this level of importance, that it is the way in which you do the most important erba of our lives, which is the difference between Mr. And Cofer, and yesterday, you heard all that is related to that also, why is that?

00:23:51--> 00:24:19

To emphasize and to help us to understand the point the importance of Sunnah itself in all our life, not only is Allah Salah is Nebuchadnezzar, his way, if you read the sea that way was that he used to use Salah as a way to illustrate anything of importance. For example, the famous hunters were given his lava cave and asked him Well, what is

00:24:20--> 00:24:29

what was the example he would have said it has to do everything excellently in your life. It is what it is it untangled Allah Hagen Nakata

00:24:32--> 00:24:35

to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as if you can see him

00:24:37--> 00:24:59

and though you do not see Allah subhanaw taala know that Allah subhanaw taala sees you Why is he even giving this example because that was his way he would give the he would relate everything to Salah because Salah is the head of the matter as you said in another this is Ursula is the pig or is the head of the matter. So once that is clear, then the same lesson is to be applied across the board in our whole life.

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

So how do I deal with people as if I'm seeing Allah subhanho data? How do I do my transactions? As if I'm seeing a large amount of data? How do I deal with my wife, my husband, my children at home, as if I'm seeing Allah subhanaw taala

00:25:13--> 00:25:39

How do I drive my car as if I'm seeing a lot of animals and everything throughout life? Everything I do as if I'm seeing a loss of animal I'm making widow as if I'm seeing Allah subhanaw taala so if I'm seeing Allah subhanaw taala and I know that Allah is watching me doing this particular thing real time, then what must I do? I will concentrate to make this the absolute drop of the line best photo that I can possibly have made in my entire life.

00:25:42--> 00:25:45

I may have made mistakes earlier but not now. I'm going to make sure because Allah is watching me.

00:25:48--> 00:25:54

This is the beauty of Nia and this is the beauty of this understanding which Allah teaches us.

00:25:55--> 00:26:01

So following the sooner therefore is absolutely critical every time we stand where we are asking this second point is

00:26:02--> 00:26:14

what do we ask Allah subhanaw taala yesterday we mentioned I in May I do I spent a little bit of time on sort of the Fatah what we say is there a certain Mr. Kim and then Sara Lee Nam tally

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

what is the surah

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

Allah data set he has seen well karate lacking in elemental mousseline Allah serata mystery

00:26:29--> 00:26:31

which are the most okay. The one you just asked for

00:26:33--> 00:26:40

who is on that? saucer, who is bearing witness and certifying

00:26:41--> 00:26:45

that he is on the Siracusa him is the fact that

00:26:46--> 00:26:52

Mr. Lim Is it a matter of our rocky death and our loved one of them that we are saying because we love it? No.

00:26:54--> 00:26:56

Allah subhanho wa Taala said this

00:26:58--> 00:27:00

in Academy lol mursaleen Allah

00:27:01--> 00:27:16

verily and Julie and surely you are among the among the prophets among the ambia among the Rasul and you are on the path of steadfastness on the on the thermistor. That's another mystery we asked for.

00:27:17--> 00:27:22

isn't as another mystery. Then you tell me how can you after Salah go and go against the sooner?

00:27:24--> 00:27:32

If you do that, then aren't you telling a lie to yourself and an ally to Allah? subhanaw taala then how do you stand on that? on that muscle again? Tell me how is that possible?

00:27:34--> 00:27:36

You just asked for the weight of the Navy.

00:27:38--> 00:27:40

And then you make Salaam and you reject the view of the Navy.

00:27:42--> 00:27:53

In the relay window Roger, the problem is we have learned to make hypocrisy into a way of life. Now please forgive me I'm not trying to hurt anybody. I'm just some basic facts.

00:27:54--> 00:27:56

We have made democracy into a way of life.

00:27:57--> 00:28:03

So therefore it becomes natural for us. It's okay for us, we say something here which is the opposite somewhere else and so on. And this is life.

00:28:04--> 00:28:05

This is not life.

00:28:07--> 00:28:16

We have to be true to ourselves. And do tell us when you stood here and you asked for the Serato booster came through at 11am derive even more.

00:28:19--> 00:28:20

Who are the enemy la

00:28:21--> 00:28:25

Anima Allahu la mina na v first among them

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

and who is the Olympia

00:28:30--> 00:28:32

hombre de la sala.

00:28:35--> 00:28:53

So, you asked what was the game, then it is absolutely incumbent upon us to be truthful to ourselves and to be truthful and authentic. And then follow that Serato Mr. Kane which has been shown to us, this Robin was the game with you and I asked for is not some great mystery which you have to search somewhere.

00:28:54--> 00:29:08

It is open it is clear it is given. It is preserved it is presented to us in absolutely clear language with all the evidences and proofs in the world. There's nothing secret about it.

00:29:10--> 00:29:25

So let us follow that. reject all bids that reject all inventions. reject all disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala and reject all the actions which go against the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salah

00:29:27--> 00:29:46

Please understand, there is no such thing as a big sunan as one sooner, the sooner the sooner. And the beauty of the sooner is that anything which is done according to the sooner converts into an action of Allah converts into an action of worship, which means that Allah subhanaw taala will actually reward you for that action.

00:29:48--> 00:29:56

You drink water because you are thirsty, but you drink it according to the sooner it becomes an act of worship Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards you for drinking water.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

You will drink water anyway.

00:30:02--> 00:30:06

It converts it into an action of worship and this is across the board for the for all of our lives.

00:30:09--> 00:30:16

I said yes ally and congregation is for then I will show you the proof so that the zaharie Allah

00:30:18--> 00:30:30

and others arrived late Allah they have said that the laws of Salah apply equally to men and women. So therefore Salah by Gemma is forced on the man and the woman

00:30:32--> 00:30:34

including Juma including praying in the masjid.

00:30:36--> 00:30:37

I'm just giving you the facts.

00:30:39--> 00:31:06

The other ima Ivanova Imam Shafi and others. They said Salah by Gemma is not further on the woman. If she does it Alhamdulillah This is beneficial for her Allah will reward her but on the man there is no difference of opinion among any of the any of the allama any of the vaca ha that Salah by Gemma is for the on demand. So it is not just beings that are going further which is worth praying Serato verger by Gemma in the masjid This is for

00:31:08--> 00:31:15

just being you know praying Salah by Gemma in damages not in this budget anybody

00:31:16--> 00:31:27

is for praying Zaragoza is not worth praying Serato her by Gemma in the magic is fun. For example, you don't have to say pray fosatu door with Voodoo.

00:31:28--> 00:31:30

You don't need to say that but this is supposed to happen.

00:31:33--> 00:31:36

The Saba understood this and I will I'm just about to give you the

00:31:37--> 00:31:47

URL for this I just want to make this very clear because there's a misconception in the AI in the minds of a lot of people. As an AI as long as I pray, I pray no praying in the masjid.

00:31:49--> 00:32:14

This is part of the fourth for the man on this matter. There is no difference of opinion. As I said there is a difference of opinion with regard to the women. There is no difference of opinion about the permissibility of women they are most welcome to come and pray in the masjid. But some of the column as I've said to them and others that desire you have desire, they have said that it is forth on them because there is nothing to say it is not for

00:32:15--> 00:32:56

their daily lives that Allah subhanaw taala gave this hokum and applies equally to men and women and Allah did not say anywhere that this does not apply to women. So therefore it is for Salah by Gemma is four in the budget for the moment also. Anyway, we are not following the heading by the way following the other mothership and hamdulillah. So stick with that. But my point is that for the men, there is no there is no rat hole to slide out of right. So please understand that very clearly. Now, what are the lies, a man came to him and asked him permission not to pray in the Jamaat rasulillah salam said to him asked him, can you hear the other? Can you hear the call? He said yes.

00:32:56--> 00:32:57

He said then answer it.

00:32:59--> 00:33:01

The mount the magazine, Allah Salah come to realize

00:33:07--> 00:33:13

there was a blind man who was on permission to pray I don't as soon as I said Can you hear the other? He said yes, he said answer the call.

00:33:16--> 00:33:24

Right in other hobbies, said whoever hears the call whoever hears the other and does not come there is no Salah for him.

00:33:25--> 00:33:31

Which means if you are hearing the other you don't go to the masjid your Salah is invalid If you prayed at home your Salah is not counted

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

except for the one who has an excuse I mean if you are ill and sick and so on and so forth, they would not go that's a different issue inshallah Islam has room for that, but if you are hearing the other

00:33:45--> 00:33:51

and you are not answering the call for Salah, then you have not prayed even if you prayed at home the Salah is not

00:33:53--> 00:34:02

is not valid Juma is fourth on all those who are mocking on all those who are resident in the place

00:34:03--> 00:34:13

for the traveler Juma is not far but an umbrella if a traveler wishes to bridge what is good for him and we should pray them if you are in a place where there is a mercy the Bible do not pray

00:34:15--> 00:34:16

but for whatever reason if you are

00:34:18--> 00:34:19

if you are traveling then

00:34:20--> 00:34:32

I want you can miss meaning deliberately missing would be you know not an acceptable thing frankly, but yes, if you missed it, it's okay it's not a it's not a foregone you and but you must pray.

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

I'm going to talk in a minute about huzar and Casa Gemma, but just because I mentioned Juma here I mentioned him this year, which is that if you are combining in travel and we'll come to those things in a minute, if you are combining his or her answer then please understand you cannot combine Azur with Java because Java is a different shala. java is not

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

ga is different Juma is different.

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

So if you are traveling and you wish to combine the two Salawat or asset then you pray by yourself and you pray or another concert Gemma This is okay. But if you go to the masjid to pray Juma then you will have to pray. Azhar at the time of Azur, you can't combine it with your because there is no combination between Juma and assar. If you prayed Azur and you combined Azur with Juma then you or you prayed Azhar before time and no Salah is valid before it's time to that Salah is not valid. So don't try to combine answer with Duma.

00:35:34--> 00:35:48

In other heavies in Bukhari and Muslim rasulillah salam said, When you hear the comma, then walk to the Salah, and you should be tranquil and dignified and not rush. This is something also teach the children

00:35:49--> 00:35:52

and hamdulillah we have a lot of very

00:35:53--> 00:36:00

enthusiastic youngsters and they come running for the Salah. So don't come running for the Salah walk

00:36:01--> 00:36:24

you know peacefully and come for the Salah Angela, we welcome you and we are very happy that you come and that you are so enthusiastic. But behaving in the masjid with dignity. This is a very important principle of the other half of the masjid so running to the Salah is not something to do

00:36:25--> 00:36:40

you whatever you catch of the Salah you pray and what you don't what you miss you make up so there is no need to rush to catch that particular row or whatever it was there's no need for that right makeup the rest of it as long as you got into the salon before the salon you got the whole salon

00:36:43--> 00:37:31

clothing yesterday I mentioned I mentioning again please enjoy when you come to the budget that your clothing is dignified your clothing is sorry correct your clothing should be correct everywhere not only in the masjid, it is not haram for a man or a woman to wear clothing which is shaarei incorrect. The correct clothing is clothing which is loose clothing which is which doesn't cling to the body and clothing which is not transparent and clothing which covers the entire hour the entire hour for the woman is the whole body except the face and the hands and for the man the hour is from above his belly button to below his knees. Which means that even when you are sitting in the shadow

00:37:31--> 00:38:07

your knees must not become must not become bear they must not become exposed. Many times I see youngsters wearing those you know the long shots right? Bermuda's kind of things and then when they are sitting in a shadow, the knees are exposed. And then when you tell them there's no my knees are covered because from where he is looking the knees here the Baba is up to here. So and from where he is looking, he discovered but when I am I am the mom I am in front of him I can see it so what I do is I put my father take a picture a jovial journey.

00:38:09--> 00:38:10

Now what do you use technology

00:38:14--> 00:38:34

is like one of our dear friends he passed away melasma Delafield is covered with no he had this habit of walking barefoot. So he would make little here and then he would walk barefoot all the way here and his feet were like, may Allah protect me from that. So one day I took a big use he was praying so I took a picture of his feet from the back and believe me they have black completely.

00:38:35--> 00:38:38

So I showed him I said a guy will acaba

00:38:40--> 00:38:42

he was like he couldn't see properly

00:38:46--> 00:38:47

calibrated.

00:38:50--> 00:38:52

He was not joking with something he thought I was really.

00:38:54--> 00:39:13

So please understand, don't do things like this is very, very important. As I said, May Allah forgive him and give them other food was very nice, very wonderful man but he had to eat whereas, as we have our own peculiarities, somebody was telling me about my peculiarities. I think actually, I have quite a few of them. That's the whole point of brand you have declarative.

00:39:15--> 00:39:26

So, dignity in dress again, dignity in dress does not mean that you have to wear expensive clothes or you know flowing robes and just clothes which are chalet correct and which are clean.

00:39:28--> 00:39:59

That's very important. Secondly, his dignity and bearing so no running and this and that and dignity in behavior. So inside the masjid, silence is preferred. So when you are there you do your fill, make Vicar read Koran, or just sit silently, ideally speaking in the masjid, you didn't come but it is not a place for socializing. You know and hanging out with friends is a place to connect with Allah subhanho wa Jalla Jalla. So therefore, silence is preferred. If you need to speak speak softly. Don't speak about the dounia no

00:40:00--> 00:40:12

Politics and this and that and business and you know what happened did you sell this property will not sell you registered whatnot all that stuff dude outside the budget not inside the margins talk about Allah subhanho wa Taala if you need to say something Say it Say it softly

00:40:14--> 00:40:29

I see this a lot of times and May Allah forgive the sisters I'm not picking on you but I see this and I hear about this. I hear complaints of this from many of the sisters that people come even while Juma talking about what was going on. People come and just like ooh,

00:40:30--> 00:40:41

pilot Oh that's a curse it's not a Salam alikoum means may you become a you because may you die. Yeah, ricotta salata, marinara Kabbalah, As salam o Allah como

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

la Koo

00:40:45--> 00:40:47

abajo please

00:40:49--> 00:41:04

and then everyone has this I don't know where they got this wrong. Everyone has to hug and they have to kiss on both cheeks. In LA when I some people tried to to be I absolutely put my hand out as a year. Only body part even touch

00:41:07--> 00:41:10

and then they after having done that then you see them five minutes later.

00:41:12--> 00:41:17

This is in the hands Oh my god. This is what does to me about you know germ warfare.

00:41:18--> 00:41:20

Please don't do all these things is filthy nasty.

00:41:22--> 00:41:29

So then then the whole thing about you know wherever you I didn't see you was no longer carry a

00:41:30--> 00:41:34

knife or a cannon Canada please don't call this the masjid is not for all that.

00:41:36--> 00:41:56

Please come take your place quietly. Listen to the whole vibe it is going on. If it is not going on he will Salah you pray and I will pray for whatever don't talk to anybody No need after go out to the budget. Do all your socializing no problem inside the budget do not do all this. Second thing is don't step over people and come in poverty is another big problem.

00:41:58--> 00:42:14

The step over people you move people and whatnot because you want to get to your place in the masjid. Please go look at the carpet very carefully. Your name is not written on that right? Nobody's holding a real piece of real estate to say if you really so desperately in love with that piece of land, then come early and sit on it. No problem.

00:42:16--> 00:42:53

But if you come late goes into the back and do not disturb people. There are people who are praying the people who are sitting there, don't step over them and try to come in the front. This is these are all things that happen all the time please this is a important thing. I think it's very important for us to keep that second thing is you know laughing loudly in the masjid. All of this is highly avoidable. Please do not do any of these things. Another big thing is any Masjid don't interfere with the intensity of the Masters with the with the administrative arrangements of the budget. You know don't pull curtains don't lift curtains don't lower blinds don't turn on Asian

00:42:53--> 00:43:27

offices. There are people in the masjid who belong to the committee of the masjid who will do it for you tell them if you don't know who they are sit in silence server is good for you suffer in silence no problem. Later on you can you can tell someone else right but don't interfere with there is a reason why in any merges Some things are done the people who are doing it there is a reason for that please don't go and upset that. People move chairs is that underlying images I think that this is done very rarely is only people who are new. Most people don't they know what to do. But I've seen this all the time.

00:43:35--> 00:43:56

Very good point. As I was saying people who come in the beginning, don't leave gaps occupy the spaces. If you come in the beginning go to the front stuff and stand sit in the front of the people at the back or you know places there in the back. That also people go into the back because they want to lean against the wall. So now in between things are they're used. Another very big issue is obstructing

00:43:58--> 00:44:17

people enter the merging alaba now you are standing in the doorway you're standing in the pathway. Now you're stuck people are stuck on this side and this side and you can look up because you are praying you're praying so don't do it be very very clear in your the way you park your car. What do you do with your shoes, the shoes oh

00:44:18--> 00:44:20

you know the whole you know everywhere in the world.

00:44:21--> 00:44:33

Throwing shoes everywhere all over the place. People send us photos of you know this is a Buddhist temple and this is a Muslim must do that. How shameful is that? We barely tell you I mean we never learned please understand pay make sure you do this.

00:44:35--> 00:45:00

Right please make sure you put your shoes properly. It is good for you. It's good for your shoes. Because if your shoes are thrown somewhere someone else is going to stamp on them. Your shoes are going to get dirty forward, put them in racks if the racks are not there, then put them line them up nicely along the wall or something. Leave a walk a walkway in between so no one has to step on your shoes. When you come in, set the budget, find a place where you're not upsetting anybody the best

00:45:00--> 00:45:21

thing is go right to the front or go to one of the walls and then you can pray peacefully nobody bothers you and you got you won't bother anybody else don't just enter and stand somewhere in the middle or in the pathways or wherever and start praying because you are causing obstruction to everybody else the same thing of course parking is a major issue everywhere in the world and which is why I always get a bad rap.

00:45:24--> 00:45:24

Yeah, another

00:45:28--> 00:45:39

another one, I don't know. I mean, I am sitting there in the on the masala and somebody will come and stand right in front of me and he's praying. I mean, the whole merges is where you find my belly, my belly button to make up for what

00:45:40--> 00:45:48

is crazy, I don't understand the margin is empty. But they will come and stand in front of the bar forward. Same thing they do with the with a member and

00:45:49--> 00:46:22

the time is happening. And there's someone who very peacefully praying for Raghav Sana before the right in front of the member. So you can go you can get on to the member because you guys bring that the order of these things, please. I mean, we have to repeat these things over and over. Don't do that. Make sure that before you start your Salah, you are in a place where you are not disturbing anybody and nobody will disturb you. And you by all means pray peacefully. Don't drag a chair in the middle of the sutra. No, you go and find yourself a place where you are not a obstruction to anybody. Right.

00:46:24--> 00:46:29

Now I'm going to show you a issue of on the issue of correcting the Imam. I'm going to show you

00:48:20--> 00:48:24

what is happening here you see the rest of it. The Imam is reciting correctly

00:48:26--> 00:48:38

is thinking of another is and he is correcting the Imam thinking that the writing wrongly to the character is completely wrong and himself. But the other issue the other was we'll talk we'll see what happened.

00:50:02--> 00:50:16

He the the issue is here it this this is purely an issue, this is purely an issue of arrogance, nothing is now correcting of the map this is an important issue I think.

00:50:18--> 00:50:25

Now first and foremost, who has the first and foremost what you what should you correct? Right.

00:50:27--> 00:51:08

If the Imam is making a mistake in Surah Fatiha definitely it should be corrected because you know the vada is the ruler of the Salah if the Imam resets it wrongly than the server itself is invalid and therefore it must be corrected number. Usually nobody will make a mistake in Drupal fathia there may be and sometimes in terms of Tajweed there will be mistakes in terms of Muggeridge, and none of us know that the pronunciation and while Allah insha Allah this does not invalidate the Salah that should not be there. The Imam must be somebody who who knows how to research so the Fatah at least correctly other otherwise why is it the mom in the first place? But anyway, that's a different

00:51:08--> 00:51:49

issue, that mistakes are only in the second Surah the first and foremost thing to understand is that as far as correcting of mistakes in the second Surah is concerned, no mistake will invalidate your Salah. So even if the Imam makes a mistake in recitation, there is no problem with your Salah history is valid, your Salah is valid. Obviously making a mistake is not a good thing. But it happens. It even happened with nummies Allah Salam he stumbled in his in his recitation sometimes, and that is how we understood how to correct and this was done for me, Salazar of Allah subhanaw taala did it in order for him to teach us what to do. So therefore, first and foremost, if the mom

00:51:49--> 00:52:13

if you think the mom is making a mistake, then if you do not do anything, there is no problem, number one, number two, if you need to correct first thing to see is where you are standing. And that is why the general rule is a person who knows the most Koran should be the Imam and the person standing behind him should be somebody who also knows the Quran well,

00:52:15--> 00:52:42

because for two reasons, one is because in case of correction, the person is standing right behind so you can correct it. And this is done softly in a graceful manner. Secondly is that if the Imam dies in Salah, then this person can take over and continue the Salah, Salah is not broken, or may not be something so drastic, if the man for example, loses his widow, then all the Imam does is the man goes away to make his widow and this person comes forward as the Salah continues, the Jamaat is not stopped and you don't say everybody rose up, I

00:52:43--> 00:53:01

don't need to do all that. So, this is the reason why somebody so if you are wanting to correct First of all, if you are standing in the third row, fourth row is down in the corner. And you say Alhamdulillah No, no, no, no, no, that is not your job. You sit quietly there you pray your Salah, if you are standing far away, do not open your mouth.

00:53:02--> 00:53:38

If you are standing a third situation is you are standing now behind the mic or may not be directly behind the man but you are in the first step and you are close by and you would like to correct the way to correct is to do it. Clearly. To do it not loudly but loud enough for the man to hear and the man may not have the greatest theory in the world. So sometimes people mumble I was you know what I'd What did I do wrong? He's mumbling something in the back? I can't understand what he's saying. No. So do it clearly. And the best way to do that is to begin at the starting of the is that the man made a mistake in

00:53:41--> 00:53:42

the morning is that

00:53:43--> 00:54:09

a big hill moon cuchara collision career and somebody made a mistake you start from the beginning. Don't Don't just mention that one word by itself. Because it's very confusing. You don't know the word you mentioned. Now, where did the mistake come? From the moment perspective, I'm saying because I do remember. So, I know the confusion and creates. So, start from the beginning of the Now you might say well you know i you and I don't know the beginning I keep quiet has nothing

00:54:11--> 00:54:27

It is not your job to correct the man first and foremost understand this. Then comes the issue. Now, you corrected the man the man did not take your correction for whatever reason maybe he did not hear it maybe he thought it was not required or whatever it is what must you do nothing

00:54:29--> 00:54:59

Do not try to correct a second time that is against the other this man is doing for eight hours Can you imagine the second backup also and in all power to even the hips also is strong in spite of all the correction he continued on is now in his place for example, I would not have resided that is the second regard because that is like digging up a fight. What is it first because whatever happened happened Albert we went into Roku and sudo second regard there is no need to reside the same is again you could have gone to something else. So one is this man would not have been

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

had the opportunity to do it eight times

00:55:03--> 00:55:24

finished with six or seven, but also I mean they have as the Imam there is no need for you to take up a fight in Salah with somebody else. So that is a different issue, but I'm saying that correcting of the Imam and Salah This is the issue. Now, what can happen sometimes is that the Imam may make a mistake

00:55:25--> 00:55:30

which completely alters or completely changes the meaning of the recitation.

00:55:31--> 00:55:50

Now, in that case, there is there is a there again there is an opinion to say that this is all this is not does not invalidate the Salah, but the stronger opinion Allah Allah is to say that if the meaning is completely changed, then if the correction is not done then the Salah becomes invalid you will have to repeat the Salah

00:55:51--> 00:56:23

so in that case if the if you correct the Imam more than once it is okay and if the mom still does not take the correction and still the mom insists on reciting that incorrect way then after the correct Salah is finished then respectfully take the Koran show the Imam you know where he made the mistake and then request him to repeat the Salah now this can happen for example instead of instead of the person saying Salah he's just varsity instead of he of Gemini he says Jana in

00:56:25--> 00:56:38

sometimes we will make mistakes and especially when people are imams don't understand Arabic They don't understand them this is the reason why it is so important to understand the Arabic language because if you are residing something and you don't know what you are saying

00:56:39--> 00:56:40

then obviously you will make a mistake

00:56:42--> 00:57:17

and sometimes if a mistake of this kind where you have completely and not just alters the meaning but it makes it the opposite meaning you know for instead of saying a sample gender or you know people of Gen Z people of the of the fire, so, things like this then correction must be weird, but please understand that the other of the correction must always be adhere to now correction as far as other things. This is only with regard to recitation correction for example, if the Mr. Mrs. Rocca or some other correction then what you need to do is to say Allahu Akbar or say Subhana Allah

00:57:19--> 00:57:40

again not shout but from behind says to Allah so the mom is alerted that I made a mistake. Now that's up to the VM Of course to recall what mistake he made and usually they will do that and then they will make up the depending on we'll come to all of that I don't want to go before the the thing if it is a record, for example, if it is

00:57:41--> 00:57:59

record itself, then the robot must be made up and then you have to make sausage so you just making the sound does not is not enough. So the record must be made up. So this the man will do inshallah, that that's not a problem but just so that the mom knows that something went wrong, right?

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

If despite that the man does not take the correction and you end up paying 03 regard instead of four or five regard instead of four. Then you have to obviously repeat the Salah when that is over. Anything else?

00:58:15--> 00:58:42

Yeah, exactly. that this happens a lot. I mean a lot of time in therapy. There are people who want to show off that they know the Quran so they when their mom is breathing they will give one love mother they know they prompt him there's no need right let them and breathe. He has to do he has to live know otherwise I will do your vomit. So the No Don't be in such a hurry to correct people. We will take a break for 15 minutes and we'll come back inshallah for the rest of the class was Allah Allah Allah Allah will carry while he was abused me
