I mean, yeah, but I mean, my dear respected beloved brothers and sisters, I ask Allah azza wa jal to protect you wherever you are, I mean,

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

00:01:15 --> 00:01:20

I want to repeat the Hadith that I quoted in the first class

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

a man walked into the masjid

00:01:27 --> 00:01:40

and he prayed and he went through Salah Salem and he said, As salam o ALLAH, Rasool Allah rasool Allah wa salatu salam replied the salam Wa Alaikum salam o alaikum salaam wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:01:41 --> 00:02:08

And then he told him, go back and pray because you did not pray. And like we said, this incident three times, that happened three times the man went back again, and came back and also said, You did not pray, go back and pray, and the third time the same. And then the man said, well, Lady Bertha cabel Huck, now was she knew her era, the Alemany me, Lord,

00:02:10 --> 00:02:20

by the one who sent you with the truth, I cannot offer any better than what you have seen. So teach me

00:02:22 --> 00:03:05

teach me, my brothers and sisters, there's nothing wrong no matter how old you are, no matter no matter how educated you are, there is nothing wrong with asking others for help. And especially when it comes to the matter of the deen and especially when it comes to the matter of of the salaat. So this man, only Allah knows how old he was. But he came and admitted yeah rasool Allah that's all I know. So teach me because as soon as I said I'm told them that thing that you just did, I don't know what it is. This is not what I told you. This is not Salaat go back and pray because you did not completely did not pray. So what are the wrestlers SLM tell him and so Sasaram started telling him

00:03:05 --> 00:03:17

with his gentle method, his stride, telling him how to perform the prayer. He started telling all about every rock can do it, had dogma in

00:03:18 --> 00:03:24

do it until you feel at ease doing it, Erica Tuchman in Iraq and was injured

00:03:25 --> 00:03:42

in a surgery that Subhanallah may Croco until you are at peace in your record, makes Ouzoud until you feel at ease in your schedule, and so on with every single pillar of the salad, my brothers and sisters

00:03:44 --> 00:03:46

Where are you going? For Aina to the bone.

00:03:48 --> 00:03:59

Some of us pray in such speed that Subhan Allah Yanni, we asked ourselves, why am I rushing so much in the slot?

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

We rushed so much in the slot to the level that we have no clue what we recited. We, we miss some records maybe some time, but that is an if it happens every once in a while, no big deal. But it happens regularly. Quick, quick, Fatihah quick test, be quick to hear everything is quick. We are rushing, where why are we rushing? Why

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

aren't we in the meeting with the most beloved.

00:04:34 --> 00:04:50

So slow down, that I'm mentioning this after he mentioned everything because in sha Allah Allah tomorrow, we will actually start the meeting. So before we start the meeting, I want to bring this up the rushing in the salaat

00:04:52 --> 00:04:55

slow down or the slow down mean

00:04:56 --> 00:05:00

when we imagine that we are in a meeting with Allah Subhan

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

In what Allah and we are practicing everything we said before, we are understand what we are understanding what we are saying. We are standing in front of the old beautiful himself, old merciful himself. We are standing in front of the one we love the most. And remember the key the secret key for sure. I am talking to Allah azza wa jal. So if I am talking to Allah, how can I rush with my talking to him, I have to enjoy my talking with Allah subhanho wa Taala so we rush in reading the Fatiha and my brothers and sisters. I'm going to recite the Fatiha I'm going to put a timer on the screen and I'm gonna recite the Fatiha that most of us recite and then I'm gonna recite

00:05:40 --> 00:05:51

it in a way that is supposed to be recited and let's see the difference is it really worth it? Okay, read inshallah. Okay, this is the way we recite the Fatiha most of us recite the Fattah

00:05:53 --> 00:06:05

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Rahman Rahim, Maliki and within ear canal Buddha yakka Stein and you know Surat Al was takim Serapion Medina and and Tally him while you're about to bury him or a ball lien Amin

00:06:07 --> 00:06:10

00:06:12 --> 00:06:26

Let's recite and I was very fair by the way some some people have did that again. When did you maybe take 678 seconds? So I was very mothered. Let's recite the Fatiha right now in the way it's supposed to be recited

00:06:27 --> 00:06:32

and handed in here I've been iron me in our

00:06:33 --> 00:06:59

rocking Maliki only Dean II can Abu door II kind of staying in us we're off on Mustafi said auto lady Lena and him. Are you real? No Do we hiring him what a ball lean? Mean?

00:07:13 --> 00:07:21

19 seconds difference which Fatiha was better you think? Second one right 19 seconds

00:07:23 --> 00:07:48

difference between making the Salah, the Fatiha beautiful or just making a quick Fatiha 19 seconds and if I'm praying to raka the difference between a beautiful salad and the quick salad is 19 and 19 for less than a minute, less than a minute. So please slow down and your Fatiha.

00:07:49 --> 00:08:10

As when when we come to the explanation of the Fatiha we will we will explain it area by area and we will mention that it is the only surah in the Quran that Allah azza wa jal actually answers you back after every single area and it is the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallaahu salam to stop at the end of every area. That is the son of Rasulullah sai Salam.

00:08:12 --> 00:08:45

So slow down my brother, slow down my sister, when we are reciting the Fatiha the best surah in the Quran, slow down when you are making the spear. When we are making Subhanallah Brd right when we are on record and we are saying Subhana Abderrahim SubhanAllah 100 100 Beardy. Why? Why? What the Subhanallah Brd mean we are coming to it in sha Allah Tala, when we come to the part of the record, we are glorifying Allah, we are praising Allah azza wa jal you tell me what kind of praise is this?

00:08:46 --> 00:08:53

If you ask me for if you asked me for $20 and I gave you $20 And he said, Thank you, thank you, thank you.

00:08:54 --> 00:09:08

What kind of thank you is this and praising Allah Subhana Allah Javi let me say Subhana Vilavi I'm going to teach you a way to say it Subhan Allah be Ravi and take a breath

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

Subhan Allah

00:09:12 --> 00:09:16

Subhan Allah the similarly Subhan

00:09:17 --> 00:09:29

Allah I'm pleasing Allah azza wa jal, I am remember I am talking to Allah azza wa jal slow down please slow down Subhana Allah Javi Subhan

00:09:30 --> 00:09:44

Allah at to hear too little, was Salah to slow down, where are you going? Are you know Subhanallah one time I was I was in the masjid and then a brother came

00:09:46 --> 00:09:59

and he was praying and he did the Sudoku in such a fast manner, that I could not believe that there is any possible way he recited three times

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

Subhan Allah, Allah. So I said to myself, when he goes down to the second record to the record, I'm going to say with him Subhanallah we are going to see how he does he say three times. So when the brother went down to the record and the second record

00:10:13 --> 00:10:53

and I started saying Subhanallah we are done with him. I said sub, I said sub and the brother was up. I said, Allahu Akbar, what is this? So when he finished Of course we supposed to talk to each other and advise each other and order good and forbid evil, gently kindly. I went to the brother and I praised him, masha Allah, you're coming to the masjid you're praying, but I noticed that is it possible that you have said Subhanallah Robin three times in your record? He said Allah Yes, yes, I did. To how I was trying to say it with you. I said some and you were up. He said chef, you know, after I finished the small Surah after Fatiha for example, mineralogy naughty when Allahu Akbar as

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

I'm going down, yes, yes, I started saying so hang on, we are adding some other

00:10:58 --> 00:11:45

Have you been this is not the way it works. So we have to when we are in full record, then we start Subhana Vilavi. So we say it slowly. So Jah Matata because we are praising Allah subhanaw taala one time a Sheikh was sitting in the masjid and so somebody prayed very fast. After he finished praying. He said, Who are you praying for? What who's that salad for? He said, This is for Allah azza wa jal. I'm doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala he said Allah if you gifted me this Salah to me, I will throw it in your face. How dare you give it to Allah subhanaw taala slow down, it will change definitely will bring you closer to achieving the holeshot How can we or what should I do in order

00:11:45 --> 00:11:48

to help me slow down in my salon number one?

00:11:49 --> 00:11:54

There remember this name of Allah azza wa jal and Rocky,

00:11:56 --> 00:12:07

Rocky, the old watching he's watching me. Right? Imagine that you are praying. Imagine that you are praying and your father is sitting there and checking.

00:12:08 --> 00:12:20

Fatiha. Check good record. Excellent, excellent. Check. So shoot oh Masha Allah Very good. Right? Imagine somebody is grading you for that Salaat

00:12:22 --> 00:12:30

your Imams watching, your parents are watching. Your your spouse is watching Subhan Allah.

00:12:32 --> 00:13:18

Allah is watching you. Allah subhanaw taala is watching even if there's nobody at home. Allah is watching. At what Allah anytime I think about that. My Salah completely completely changed. Allah is watching me how can I rush? Allah is watching me. This is what I start thinking about that there was an Imam and one of his students. He came and he said, Yeah, Imam yesterday, I finished the whole Quran unclear. So the Imam is very wise. If he finished the whole Quran, okay, and that means he was rushing so much. So he said tomorrow, when you are reciting the Quran, imagine that I am sitting next to you. So he came in the next day he said, How was your career? So the La Jolla chef I took

00:13:18 --> 00:14:07

your, your prescription, and I prayed clear with you as if you are watching me and I have the finished Tengiz he said tomorrow pray pm as if Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is watching you. So the next day he came I said, Yes, I heard the finished one just because I imagined this last lesson he was watching me. He said tomorrow, you pray as if Allah is watching you. So the chef gradually get to his point. The next day, the student came tearing said what happened? He said Allah chef, I took by your advice, and I hardly finished the fat Yap. Subhanallah Allah is watching us slow, down, slow down, please slow down. The second thing that will help us slow down our Salaat

00:14:09 --> 00:14:15

there was a hadith in in a necessity, where I saw my son Elijah, man came to him and he said,

00:14:17 --> 00:14:53

Teach me your rasool Allah and make it short Subhanallah teach me and make it short. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said suddenly, Salah Temo pray as if it's your last prayer. That is something that will definitely help me improve my shoe and improve my salah and slow down. I will consider every Salat I am praying. This is my last slot. This is my last slot. Imagine Allahu Akbar Hollis They're waiting for me outside the taking me to the graveyard. This is my last. How would that slot be?

00:14:54 --> 00:14:59

Would that not be quick and express and I have no idea what I'm doing and I cannot wait to finish. No, no, no, no

00:15:00 --> 00:15:29

Since my last summer that's it I'm done. How would that Spanner bill of MB how would that better be? This is my last time saying these words slow down slow down and this could be your last a lot. As a matter of fact, it is allowed every once in a while it's not a it's not we should not be a habit that the Imam every single salah, tell the people some salata more, but if he said it every once in a while, pray as if it's your last prayer once once a week once a month once

00:15:30 --> 00:15:43

every few times they pray it's okay but to make it steady, this was a solemn word that was not his his son. So remembering that this could be my last a lot will definitely make me slow slow down.

00:15:46 --> 00:16:38

And the last thing Charla Tada that if I remember, and I think about it will slow down my salad knowing that it is the first thing I will be accountable for on the Day of Judgment. The hadith said if the Salah is good, everything will follow. And if the Salah is not good, everything will follow. If the Salah is good, fasting will follow hygiene will follow ombre will follow the cat will follow charity, everything will follow. And if the Salah is not good, he did not say if you pray, if you do not pray, we will talk about that later. Everything will follow. So I have to make sure that this salah is in sha Allah to Allah to the best of my ability. I'm trying to perfect it. So I

00:16:39 --> 00:17:25

every other hammer that I'm doing in sha Allah, Allah will also be good. So my brothers and sisters, tonight's lesson is very brief, straightforward. Two words Slow down, slow down some chocolate and if you apply all these lessons that we took already, I'm sure by now you started feeling the hotshot in the solid and especially my young brothers and sisters, please slow down in your Salah. Please slow down in your solid. May Allah subhanaw taala make us from the people who listen and apply. May Allah azza wa jal at this time of Athar in sha Allah Allah, may Allah save our necks from the hellfire. May Allah subhanaw taala accept the fasting and accept our dua. May Allah azza wa jal

00:17:25 --> 00:17:40

bless and protect our children and bless and protect our parents. I mean your bill Alameen wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad Ali, he was a big man Subhana Allah Allah, that should Allah Allah he learned the stuff you want to be like, see you all tomorrow in sha Allah.
