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

Killer another Rahim

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

al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah shuffelin beaver mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, WA de was

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

the Sleeman, Cassia and cathedra from Abbado.

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

My dear brothers and sisters,

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

Allah subhana wa tada gelato who told us we are on the, in the class of wisdom of logmar alayhis salam, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this a means of fair and Baraka for all of us, inshallah. And as I always begin by reminding myself, I knew that the purpose of all of these lectures and everything else, is for us to understand and remember that

00:00:49--> 00:00:50

we need to

00:00:52--> 00:00:56

practice these lessons in our lives.

00:00:57--> 00:01:04

That is the most important thing, the most important thing is to practice these lessons in our lives. That is the purpose of teaching, there is a purpose of learning.

00:01:05--> 00:01:11

So that we benefit that's the only way we can benefit we cannot benefit just by listening to the lecture.

00:01:13--> 00:01:20

The lecture is to remind myself and you of the importance of practice. So that is what I would

00:01:21--> 00:02:13

I would strongly recommend and I always begin everything, every class by reminding this now, we are on the issue of Salah as satana Lockman Eddie Sallam advised his son in a loss of data, consider it important enough to tell us about it. So, it was rather a told us what to do when we are called to Salah. He mentioned this with respect to Juma in particular, but also it applies to all the farts on Earth. When Allah said yeah, are you are levina armano either uno de la sala de mijo mille Giamatti fossa, Villa de la he was ruled by value como hydro lacunae in condom tala mode, which means the last rant that I said oh you believe when the call is proclaimed, when the other is called for the

00:02:13--> 00:02:31

Salah on the day of Friday on Juma then rush and race and go fast to the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala we by which is meant there's a lot of drama, and leave your business and every other thing that is better for you, if you if only you know

00:02:33--> 00:02:48

as I said, This refers also to other Sabbath. So anytime the time for a first Salah comes, then everything else in the world is less important than that for Salah.

00:02:49--> 00:02:59

Now for a believer that is I don't think it needs great explanation. If Allah Subhana Allah Akbar then whatever has to do with Allah subhanho wa Taala has to be

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

anything that is related to Allah subhanaw taala will be the most important because Allah is the most important. So that is the reason why Allah subhanaw taala told us to leave everything and rush not just walk leisure Li or stroll or something, but to rush and race towards Allah when the other one is called.

00:03:17--> 00:03:39

And of course we know the meaning of the words with other the words insert here lasala and then he says hello Farah come towards Allah and come towards success. Now obviously, here is the was in who's calling us towards salah and he's calling us towards success. And if so, if we say our buyer behavior,

00:03:41--> 00:04:10

if we demonstrate that we consider something else to be more important, then effectively we are saying that success is not really in salon success is not really where I'm not Ratana told us, but we know better. what success is in my business or meeting or whatever it is that I'm doing, rather than being in the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala in being a Abdullah in being a obedient slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:11--> 00:04:44

my brother and sisters, Allah subhanaw taala is ordering the Muslim to leave his worldly affairs and go to salah and says that this is better for him only if only he knew. Now today we delay or even miss a Salah altogether because we are tied up in worldly affairs and some of those are ridiculous. I mean, you know, some people miss Allah because they're out shopping and other people miss Allah because they're watching some game or something. Now this is the opposite of what Allah subhanaw taala ordered us to do. So the question to ask ourselves is what do we intend to say to Allah subhanaw taala when we meet him,

00:04:45--> 00:04:52

because here is Allah subhanaw taala telling us to do something and we are doing the opposite. So we will recall to account and then what do we do?

00:04:53--> 00:04:56

How do we answer and this is the whole essence of

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

of a mannequin.

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

Now obviously all of us because we are Muslims, we will not deny the meeting with Allah, we will not deny the fact that we are accountable, we will not deny the fact that one day we will be, we will die. And then we will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment before Allah subhanaw taala. And we will face his his judgment on that day, we will not deny any of these things, but the fact is that just not denying, verbally, and is different from acting in that way where our actions show, and they are evidence for our faith and belief. Our actions are the proof that we have not denied the meeting with the last 100

00:05:42--> 00:06:10

that is where we need to get ourselves how can I act in a way which will be the evidence in my favor when I meet a lot of Hamilton because believe me, it's only our actions are our ultimate that I said, Nothing will allow for him, what to call him an ID him with a shadow or romila conexpo. In sort of the scene, Allah said that the the time we received you will not be able to speak, your hands and feet will speak about what we used to do so.

00:06:12--> 00:06:40

And the hand will speak and the feet will and the legs will bear witness. And the legs will speak and the eyes will speak and the ears will speak whatever we used to do and the and the parts of the body and the faculty we used to do that these will speak in our favor, or they will speak against us depending on what we have been doing. And that's the reason why it's so important for us to ensure that we do only the right thing and we do not fall into the trap of doing something which is wrong.

00:06:42--> 00:06:42

My brother and sisters,

00:06:44--> 00:06:58

sometimes they will ask this question, especially when I had like this, what Allah said was obey, leave whatever is is there, leave your worldly affairs and rush towards the worship of Allah subhanaw taala.

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

And this is better for you If you only knew.

00:07:03--> 00:07:10

Sometimes shaitaan puts this doubt in the minds of people and people ask this question and they say well, you know,

00:07:12--> 00:07:36

should live in the worldly affairs Does it mean that I have to stop working? I just have and their interpretation of course, is to is to do nothing. Now I want to clarify this very clearly for you. Taco does not mean to do nothing taco means to do the best and then trusting a loss manager. Take the example of a farmer for example, right? If you have a farmer, have you ever seen a farmer Muslim farmer?

00:07:38--> 00:08:04

Simply, you know, in his field, say for example, just before the monsoon before the rainy season, when he should be getting his field ready, plowing it and following it and cleaning it up. And you know, taking care of taking soil samples, doing soil correction, as they need might be putting in fertilizer, digging his irrigation trenches, ditches, water conservation,

00:08:05--> 00:08:11

water conservation practices, instead of inserting all the Have you seen a Muslim farmer

00:08:12--> 00:08:26

who simply puts his masala in the field. And he's sitting there and all day and making bigger and he's praying dollars 100 Allah, Allah give me a good crop. Allah give me a Best Buy. Give me the best crop. We do that. Have you ever seen a farmer like that? Right?

00:08:27--> 00:08:31

I'm sure you haven't. Because farmers don't do that farmers understand the meaning of tobacco.

00:08:32--> 00:08:58

Nobody understands the local better than farmers Believe me. So what is the meaning of our call me keep this farmer mommy's up. And I'll tell you why I'm saying that. The the example of oql is that the farmer will do everything that he needs to do. Right, he will plow his field, he will do everything all the stuff that I mentioned before, to he'll plow the field Varroa will, you know, to correct the soil pH value is that the if it is more acidic, he puts more calcium in it if it's more

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

if it's more alkaline, the Neil put ammonium nitrate into various things. Now he do all of that pest and disease control water conservation, irrigation, everything. And once he has taken care of all of that, and then he waits for the rain to come when the rain comes, he plants the best possible seed. He treats the seed also before planting so that it's not eaten up by insects and so on. It's not affected by pathogens once it was planted, keep plants all of that and then he will stand and he will cry for Allah and he will raise his hands and he will say all I have done everything that I could do also buy your trophy. But now without your help, this field will not grow. I will not get a

00:09:41--> 00:10:00

crop. So please give me the best crop. Now when is he asking? He's asking. He's asking for the best crop when, after having planted after having done everything that he needed to do. And after having planted the seed. He's asking because he knows that despite the fact that he did everything, it is possible it is still possible.

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

The decision may not germinate, it is still possible that they might rot, it's still possible that they might not buy don't come in time, it's still possible that he might, he might have the whole crop. Like it happened a few days ago register, whole crop and then there was a hailstorm which destroys the whole crop. Now all of this can happen. But he the farmer knows this. So therefore, what does he do? He doesn't know is my effort. I am a good farmer. No, he says, I know, I know, I have to make the effort. Because without the effort, there is no there's no harvest. But even after the effort, there is no harvest unless Allah subhanaw taala wants to give you the harvest. So

00:10:33--> 00:10:45

therefore, our goal is to understand that we need to make the effort and also understand that the effort by itself will not yield the result, unless the help of Allah subhanaw taala comes.

00:10:46--> 00:11:18

So it is the combination of these two things, it's a combination of making the effort, and then standing and asking ALLAH and I might say, well, if I'm making all the effort, why must I stand and make dua to Allah subhanaw taala because that is that though he is the head of the heart, the local is the Dorito. The heart dalcolle is what keeps your attention on the fact that despite all my effort, without the help of Allah, I cannot succeed. success comes from a loss manager. But Allah does not give success to the one who does not make the effort. Illa Mashallah.

00:11:19--> 00:11:58

There's a story of Seth and our villain who came to Missouri the number one day and he saw some young men start sitting there, he said, What are you doing? They said, We are doing making secret. He said, For what? There's no formula, no provision for risk. So he said, How can we don't work? So they said, We are not alone. This will be our people who have thought could Sandra Delano whack them with his daughter, I said get out of here. He said Allah does not rain down gold and silver. Go and make effort, go and work. Then McDonald's manager. The finest example of taco Of course from the Ceylon Mr. seller is his Of course, his whole his whole life is topical, but I'm saying that the

00:11:58--> 00:12:15

finest example that I can give you the most graphic illustration is that of the Batmobile that before the Battle of other What did he do he did every he did not go there and start praying No, he made all the effort. He took the people apply, he put them in the right place, he

00:12:17--> 00:12:57

separated them into battalions, he appointed battalion commanders, he gave them the battle plan he gave them where they were, where each one is going to stand which group and so on and so forth. And then only he raised his hand he stood in salah and he said Oh Allah give me what you promised all your problems with victory, or like give me give these people if this if these 313 if they die, then there will be no one to take your name on the face of the earth he made all of these Darwin after, after having made all the effort related to the to the battle. Now this is because we need to we must not get into a situation. This whole concept of this left self made man or woman where we make

00:12:57--> 00:13:47

the effort and then we believe that this success is because of me. So now I'm making myself shriek in the badania of Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm making myself the partner in, in in Allah's greatness and in in success and failure which comes only and only because of the will of Allah not because anybody's anybody else's interference in that but I'm it's almost like I am you know trying to short circuit that, right? So I am imagining that I it's because of my effort that things are not my not my effort and whatever effort I may or may not have made success cannot come unless last panel data wisdom and this is where we remind ourselves about this what is fact and and we stand in our code so

00:13:47--> 00:14:09

this is the reason why when the most insert hydrosol for even though I'm in my business and so on I'm making the effort, I'm saying now here I lost my antennas calling music, come here and get success. So what do I do I leave my stuff and I go there. Now this is not third of us but this is the third g to the Subbu bola over the cerebral Adra.

00:14:10--> 00:14:59

This is not leaving the ASVAB it is giving precedence to the higher sub over the lower to the higher means or the lower means the highest of means is Salah. The highest or means is the is the help of Allah subhanaw taala the lower means is your and my effort. So I'm giving Thursday I'm making the lower effort. I'm giving it the right place which is low and I'm giving procedures to the higher effort which is the which is asking of help from Allah subhanaw taala This is the meaning of our call and ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to understand the meaning of Salah. So that we give it the importance that is due to it inshallah. Our Roman sisters Allah Subhana Allah gave us Allah

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

As a tool he gave us Allah as a weapon he gave us Allah as the greatest resource for us to fight our difficulties for us to use in order to help ourselves to succeed in this life and the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah is that if we do that Allah also inshallah gives us Jana so it's a means and a tool for us to use in this life and the next insha Allah with meaning not use the next meaning, when we use it in this life, the result of it, we will also see it in the next life. Now, Allah subhana wa tada mentioned with great love is messenger, Mohamed Salah, and once again referred to him

00:15:45--> 00:15:58

about that, which is to give him strength to do his work for which he had been sent in the work is the work of presenting Islam to a hostile world. hamdulillah

00:15:59--> 00:16:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala today has created that situation also for us, not in Em, I don't mean to compare themselves. But I mean that the work today is also for us Muslims to present Islam to a world which is, at least some of it is hostile to Islam.

00:16:18--> 00:16:28

For no reason other than the fact that we are Muslim. It's so it's very strange. I mean, the other day, somebody on my Twitter, I have no clue who that person is.

00:16:30--> 00:16:50

There was some discussion about global warming and the eating of beef. And they said we should stop eating beef. And so to prevent global warming, and this discussion was going on. And some comment that I made. This person then caused me mother chop, that is a stamp of others.

00:16:51--> 00:17:07

And usually, I do not engage. And I think that's the best thing to do is just don't engage. But I don't know what came over me. So I said to him that I do not consider that word bother such hub as a insult.

00:17:08--> 00:17:31

I am proud that I went to Amazon. And I do not consider that to be an insult. I think it's a it's an honorable thing. So you will have to try better next time. So he replies to me. And he says that as long as you keep spreading false things, I will insert you and mother such app is a very bad insert.

00:17:32--> 00:17:50

Now he doesn't know me from a bar of soap. So I looked him up. And I see that there is a young fellow, probably not even in his 20s maybe in his teens. And he has on Twitter, he has two followers. And he follows two people and obviously I'm one of them.

00:17:51--> 00:18:32

So of course I banned him. So that's the end of the story. Again, he's out of my out of my my feed, but I'm saying that this is the kind of world we're living in. He has, he has nothing against me, except the fact that I Muslim. And so here's this young chap, what kind of a life is that? I mean, what kind of a loser is that? What kind of pathetic, you know, person is that, that his life is so full of hatred, that he wants to insult somebody who's probably older than his father. I mean, I don't think his father would be my age. For no reason at all. I mean, I did not do me any harm. I did not, you know, I didn't even I don't even know he existed. I mean, he, the conversation, which

00:18:32--> 00:18:37

was happening in Twitter was or was with somebody else with respect to an article that I

00:18:38--> 00:18:54

that I saw and I forwarded on global warming, and this guy comes out of nowhere. And the first word out of his mouth is this has happened he is he means it as an insult. Right take it as an insult or not is a different thing, but he means it. Except

00:18:55--> 00:19:15

he said it is an insulting word and I will keep on insulting you. I mean, what I did I I really don't know whether I should laugh or cry when I see or hear something like this, but this is this is the unfortunate reality of the world today that the only reason that somebody hates you is because you are Muslim Alhamdulillah we don't complain, we don't cry about that.

00:19:16--> 00:19:28

bs okay. This is therefore this is a reality. So what must we do? what we must do is to do what Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam did, which is to connect ourselves to Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:30--> 00:19:35

to draw strength from Allah subhanaw taala and then to

00:19:36--> 00:19:44

pursue and continue to show the beauty of Islam in all its magnificence to the world.

00:19:45--> 00:19:49

Just do that. Do that because that is the only thing we can do.

00:19:50--> 00:19:53

That is the only thing that we can do.

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

It's not for us to

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

to you know to do any

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

Anything else other than that because we are not We are not here to,

00:20:05--> 00:20:22

to to react and be and become puppets in the hands of puppet masters. We are here to present Islam in the best possible way because that's the reason why a lot smarter centers into this world. So Allah subhanaw taala in this issue of connecting to

00:20:24--> 00:20:54

him jello as a means of so as means a strength and a source of support. Unless right that I said to resocialize in Serbia, you will Muzammil como la la kalila Misbehavin koosman oh karela oh, see the alley he worked in karate Allah. Allah, Allah says, provision Sara. Oh, my beloved NaVi. Yeah, evil Muslim, hello, stand and pray all night, Kobe, Laila Illa, Curry, or you,

00:20:55--> 00:21:41

wrapped in government's stand to pray all night, except a little half of it or a little less than that, or a little more, and recite the Qur'an in a slow and pleasant tone and style. Now, this is the need, this is the reminder that we must connect with a loss of data. And that we must draw and we can only do that if you connect with him, is to draw our spiritual sustenance from that connection, if we want to do his work. Now, if there is not a conditional, if we have to lose work, this is why we were sent. This is the purpose of our creation, to present Allah subhanho wa Taala to the world and hamdulillah we tried to do our best with that. But to get the strength to do that, as

00:21:41--> 00:22:20

I told you, this is the strength is required, because we will not be able to do this work without that strength and support from Allah subhanaw taala. The strength is required because we are facing a hostile world we are facing a world which their instant response is hostility, not because of anything you have done, because you are a Muslim. Be that as it may, we cannot change people's minds by arguing with them. So we don't argue with them, we don't engage with them, we continue to do our work to the best of our ability, which is what Allah has given us. And for that we need spiritual sustenance, we need strength and that strength come that strength comes from connecting with Allah

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

subhanho wa Taala.

00:22:22--> 00:23:00

Now this applies to everything in life. But it applies especially to the work of data. And that's why I asked myself how many in our organizations stand in Salah in the night? How many of them stand in the huddle in the night and beg Allah subhanaw taala for itself? I'm not saying Nobody does it, and say we need to ask this question. Because our success will speak for itself and will directly project this connection. If we do this, we will succeed and if we do not do this, we will fail. No matter how talented we might be in a

00:23:02--> 00:23:17

in a worldly context, no matter how talented our people might be. In a worldly context, we will fail. If and unless and until we understand this that we have to connect with Allah subhanaw taala Jelena.

00:23:18--> 00:23:28

To give you an example, in a simple way of understanding that is no matter how you know the world of smartphones, no matter how complex and capable and

00:23:29--> 00:23:34

you know, powerful your phone might be if the battery is dead is dead.

00:23:35--> 00:23:42

Dead, the best phone in the world is only as good as the power and battery. And if that battery you do not charge

00:23:43--> 00:24:04

regularly, as the charge depletes, then you will find that you are going to end up with a phone which is which does work, which does work, even though it's capable, it has all the hardware, it has all the software to make it work, but the essence what is it that allows that software to function.

00:24:05--> 00:24:09

What is it allows those programs to run on that waste is power.

00:24:10--> 00:24:18

And that power is in the battery. And this battery needs to be charged periodically to ensure that it never runs out of charge.

00:24:20--> 00:24:54

If we don't do that, then no matter how wonderful their phone is, it's a dead piece of metal nothing else right. So, this is the this is a very very important thing for us to understand that it no matter how talented I might be no matter how talented you might be no matter what our education, our capabilities and so on. If you are not connected with Allah subhanaw taala if you are not drawing that power on his elbow, then all of this talent all the visibility or the strength is going to get is null and void. It will not will not help us.

00:24:55--> 00:24:57

So we need to therefore

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

look at the

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

quality of our connection with Allah subhana wa tada and we need to improve the quality of that connection with Allah subhanho wa

00:25:10--> 00:25:39

Taala shraddha responded to his visa salah and those who prayed with him and this is the beauty of the Sahaba that Allah subhanaw taala is that weakness? And unless rantala mentioned in the last It was a Muslim it was we live in a shutdown regime. interrupt Baka Yamanaka takumar dynamin sooloos la leverage, pseudo effetto minella Xena mark will love you look at the rule 11

We're still feudal law in law

00:26:22--> 00:26:25

unless Raritan is the witness of the Sahaba. And

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

Allah said Verily, Europe knows that you do stand to pray at night, a little less than two thirds of the night, or half the night or a third of the night. And so do a party of those with you. And he's referring to his Makati is speaking to Allah and Allah and Allah measures the night and the day. He knows that you are unable to pray the whole night so he has turned you in mercy.

00:26:54--> 00:27:00

So requirement is to pray the whole night. But Allah says I have allowed you to sleep for a while.

00:27:03--> 00:27:53

So recite the Quran as much as you can as much as maybe easy for you. He knows that there will be some among you who are sick, others who are traveling through the land, seeking a loss bounty, yet others fighting and loss cause so reside as much of the Quran as may be easy for you meaning do this the hundred and perform a Salah which is a comedy Salah establish Salah which is the force on earth and gives a card and lend to Allah is in addition to Zakat, lend to Allah a goodly known ukri de la hora de la Santa, give Allah mean over and above is a card game for charity. And whatever good use and before you for yourselves, you will find it certainly with a lot better and greater in reward

00:27:54--> 00:28:33

and seek forgiveness of Allah. Really a lot of forgiving, Most Merciful. Think about this, let's not say pray to God. But if you are traveling, if you're sick, if you are fighting in the cause of Allah, you can leave it doesn't matter No. And let's say even there, you still presided, you still call upon Allah subhanaw taala maybe you do a little bit less because you are you are tied up with something else, but still do it. And it makes eminent sense because you know, in normal circumstances when nothing is going on your life is running smoothly Mashallah you there is no limit, you might feel that there is no need from wherever you are, of course, there is always a

00:28:33--> 00:28:58

need. But especially if there is a problem if I'm sick if I'm grabbing the water and if I if I am, you know, working for a project that time I need the help of Allah even more. So where is the question of leaving the hundred if I if anything, I'm as I was praying even more to add to that, because I need the help of Alice Miranda even more in normal circumstances.

00:28:59--> 00:29:04

In these abnormal and unusual circumstances, I need the help of Alice who hadn't even when

00:29:05--> 00:29:47

she was premiered. That's what was telling us. And I say do that then Alice Roger says, but that does not mean that you leave the Facilities Committee Sarah, the establishment of solid This is part of the this is the the pillar of Islam. So is the cat and then Allah says just like with the committee, Sarah for Salah, and you are doing more than the for Salah, which is the hedges and so on. Similarly, Zakat is for give more after that once you're paid to the cat now give more and this more see the the mercy of Myra Jelena who he calls this a curb? He calls this a loan to Allah subhanho wa. I think about that, well how can anybody give a loan to Allah?

00:29:48--> 00:29:54

What is the meaning roll unless using the term the term loan to signify something and what is that?

00:29:55--> 00:29:57

One that you will get it back

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

it's not gone.

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

The difference between a loan and a gift or you know, of charity is the usual understanding, which is that I have given it, it's gone. But loan is you getting it back. And usually it was interesting Haram in India in Islam. But

00:30:16--> 00:30:25

when you are when you return a loan, what do you do you pay much more than what you have borrowed people who borrow on interest. People, for example, take out mortgages or houses and so on.

00:30:26--> 00:31:04

By the time he's finished paying the mortgage, he is actually paid much more than the actual price of the house that he bought. That's the reason why in Islam, it is prohibited interest based mortgages, interest, interest based loans, all kinds of interest based activities are Haram, Allah subhanaw taala, has declared war on the one who deals in interest. That's the reason why because it's a it's a it's a losing game, for the person who's who's boring. So but the point here is I'm saying the symbolism of it, is unless calling it a loan unless saying, Give this loan to Allah, because Allah will then return it to you unless and that when you may tell us maricella you're going

00:31:04--> 00:31:17

to find this, whatever you spent in the path of Allah, in a much more beautiful varme and much greater and reward how much greater in greater and keeping to the, in keeping with the majesty and grace of the of the giver.

00:31:19--> 00:31:56

And then seek forgiveness of Allah, magical look at this beauty of this thing. You have just finished praying to had to deal with brain damage all night, have the night three quarters of the night, you will decide in Quran and so on and so forth, you're giving charity and all that and unless they would seek forgiveness of Allah. Now what did Why? Well, for what, for what I mean, did you commit a sin was praying to Allah said no, what's the forgiveness? forgiveness is? First and foremost, it is a symbol of our mood yet the symbol of our bond is a symbol of the fact that we are the slaves or loss of health. So we present our worship not as I am fulfilling your rights. No, we

00:31:56--> 00:32:23

present it as a as a very small and insignificant and incomplete and broken gift to the great monarch to the great king, Donald lol. I'm Sal, Allah subhanaw taala is, is beyond description and examples. But we are presenting it as a gift with great humility and submission. And we are saying Allah, please take this Allah, Allah, please take this sucker. It's not worthy of you.

00:32:24--> 00:32:38

In any case, whatever went into that meaning for Salah, for example, the energy, the knowledge, the time, the ability to pray, all of this came from where I came from on this mountain.

00:32:39--> 00:32:40

There's nothing in it, which is mine.

00:32:42--> 00:33:01

Charity I give if I give money, where who gave me the money I like giving, so I'm taking a trawler club handing it here. And even though it doesn't belong to me, even though I like gave it to me and Allah subhanaw taala gave me the trophy he gave me the the understanding and the

00:33:02--> 00:33:10

and the and the guidance, to spend that in his path. Despite all of that coming from him, he still towards me

00:33:12--> 00:33:17

and rewards me in a way and in in amounts that I can't even begin to imagine.

00:33:18--> 00:33:30

Right? This is a beauty. This is the meaning of Islam. This is the beauty of Islam. And this is the sign of the greatness and glory and magnificence and generosity of Allah subhanho that

00:33:32--> 00:33:48

despite that if somebody doesn't want to pray despise that if somebody does want to give Zakat despite that if someone does not want to get caught and to spend more in the path of Allah, then this is really it is your misfortune. It is your you know this is evil from you May Allah protect us from that.

00:33:50--> 00:34:06

And then Allah says Allah is more forgiving, Most Merciful. The see the individual sort of taught over Garcinia Delano to read in Salah before Salaam after finishing everything is what is dry is for asking for forgiveness,

00:34:07--> 00:34:12

asking for forgiveness in his Irby in his beloved NFC Zalman Cassia.

00:34:13--> 00:34:14

For in the hula,

00:34:16--> 00:34:23

oh my love, I have Amara, I have given I have done, I have transgressed on myself I have done so on myself.

00:34:24--> 00:34:26

Digital democracy,

00:34:27--> 00:34:38

forgive me because only you can forgive what I pray house prayer. So, because the prayer was supposed to be of a particular quality and you know, and I know what our prayer is like.

00:34:39--> 00:34:48

So if you take something and you are going to give this to Allah subhanaw taala and you are giving us some inferior trash, this sort of

00:34:49--> 00:35:00

that's why what do we do? He asked us forgiveness we submitted to him with Hume is with humility with great submissions he Allah Please accept it. And there

00:35:00--> 00:35:26

By honor me accept it and thereby save me accept it and thereby enable me to at least hold up my head without shame to say that I tried to do something for the sake of my objection, because if Allah does not accept that salah and it is thrown back in my face and we know that this is what happens to some to some sellers, because of the quality of that seller and whatever you do

00:35:28--> 00:35:32

you can say well, you know, I I did my salad, we didn't want to accept regio problem No, because

00:35:34--> 00:35:42

our brothers sisters, Salah is also to inculcate in the Muslims the habit of asking only from Allah

00:35:43--> 00:35:45

and bowing only to him.

00:35:47--> 00:36:11

Really, let us let us ask ourselves this question we ask only from our economic good, we are gonna say this is the, the, the essence of our events. The essence of Islam is dahveed and Tao he is to worship only alive without any partners, without joining anyone with him, and to seek help only from Allah Subhana Allah.

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

This is the essence of the

00:36:15--> 00:36:18

hamdulillah Santa's gave this to us.

00:36:19--> 00:36:28

We ask Allah never take it away. And we must make every effort to hang on to this. never asked anyone for anything. If you want something ask Allah, Allah will give you

00:36:30--> 00:36:35

If Allah wants he will use a means if Allah wants you will give you your peace. Like he gave to me, Melissa,

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

where fruits used to come out of season fruits has to come and they would be in a room I learned to send from Jenna

00:36:45--> 00:37:00

and Zachary Hassan came there he saw this thing. Here is this little girl I will lock her up in the room for her own safety and I come back I find she's got beautiful fruits and fresh fruit, which is out of season not available anywhere in the market. How did she get it?

00:37:02--> 00:37:06

And she says this has been in the news from Paula.

00:37:10--> 00:37:13

Yeah, Maria, Anna, like you have omarion Where did you get this from?

00:37:15--> 00:37:22

Okay. So the point is, that the same Allah who can give whatever he can give you a me

00:37:23--> 00:37:24

there's no doubt about this.

00:37:26--> 00:37:29

provided we have the kind of dakwah leccion.

00:37:31--> 00:37:42

So Salah is to inculcate in the Muslims, this habit of asking only for Allah subhanho that nobody has, and bowing only to Allah Subhana Allah nobody has.

00:37:43--> 00:37:49

It's also to inculcate in ourselves a discipline of cleaning ourselves from impurity and sin.

00:37:51--> 00:37:55

Washing ourselves, so external purity, internal purity,

00:37:56--> 00:38:12

and returning to Allah subhana wa sallam is to help us to plan our lives it is helped ages it is to help us to have a timetable to follow a leader to stand shoulder to shoulder with our brothers, and collectively demonstrating the

00:38:13--> 00:38:20

Brotherhood of faith. Now, of course, we don't stand shoulder to shoulder nowadays, thanks to COVID and we should not Don't insist on doing that

00:38:22--> 00:38:39

hamdulillah inshallah, even though we are standing six feet apart, because of the circumstances because this is a calamity and this is an IP tailor from Allah subhanaw taala. Allah does ensure that our hearts are kept together the shaitan does not come between us.

00:38:41--> 00:38:45

It is very important to follow safety regulations absolutely critically important.

00:38:47--> 00:38:53

Nevertheless, sisters, it is very important for us to understand the importance of salah

00:38:54--> 00:39:15

and to realize what a big honor it is, so that we gladly and eagerly fulfill its responsibility and benefit from its power unless rather a sense the Salah, in order for us to benefit from it. And also rather give it to a sort of some sort of as his gift so that he

00:39:17--> 00:39:24

was able to do his work. And this is what this is a gift from Allah subhanaw taala for us also

00:39:26--> 00:39:28

very, very important that is try to

00:39:30--> 00:39:48

let's try to ensure that we never ever miss a single salah and we make every effort to pray on time. And we make every effort to improve the quality of our Salah. ask Allah Subhana Allah to enable us to

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

to learn and to implement these learnings in a way that pleases His Majesty and grace ask Allah be pleased with you and never to be displeased masala Alana will carry on

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

It was savage made with Mohammed Mohammed.

00:40:04--> 00:40:06
