Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Allah Melinda main founder and founder Mr. Lim tena was at nine when
we ask Allah azza wa jal teachers would benefit us, benefit us from mosquitoes and increase us in knowledge me Naira Bill Alameen, my dear respected beloved brothers and sisters, may Allah subhanaw taala protect you from any harm, I mean Allah
for hamdulillah datamine we are now at a stage that if we are applying all the lessons we have learned in the series, we should start tasting some of the sweetness of the salad. We said that the heart has to be present in sha Allah Tala, we are understanding what we are saying. We introduced the feeling of Raja of hope of Allah's mercy. We introduced the feeling of fear of haber of Allah subhanaw taala has a lot of wrath,
or maybe not accepting and we introduced the feeling of love of Allah subhanho wa taala. And then we introduce the secret key, which is talking to Allah subhanaw taala talk to Allah subhanaw taala and yesterday, we discussed something extremely important, which is slow down, slow down. Okay.
Let me ask you a question. If the Angel of Death
came and said,
that last slot that you prayed
is your last slot?
How many of us would beg him to do it all over again?
Many of us would ask him, please can I pray it again?
SubhanAllah. So why don't we pray every single slot
in a way that it is our last slot.
And keep in mind that when we are praying that for my brothers and sisters or thrush,
we have to
think that no matter what you are worried to lose, or whatever you think you are going to miss is in the hands of the one you're standing before. So why are you rushing?
Is it possible that because I took my time and I enjoyed my salad.
Allah subhanaw taala is going to punish me as it Allah is going to make me lose that deal or miss that meeting or no I take my time and I'm not saying you know,
mess up all your schedules and all that. But just do not rush in in your salad. It's in the control of the one you are standing before. My brothers and sisters today.
We are ready to start this a lot of officially John McDonough all that was an introduction or that was an introduction to this moment.
Before we start the salad, I just want you to please pay attention to the way you are dressed. Many of us when they go outside any kind of party wedding, baby shower, graduation, any kind of occasion they put their best clothing
and when it comes to the salaat erupted shirt, ripped pants, dirty this dirt No no no no. You're in the meeting with Allah subhanaw taala I'm not telling you put a tuxedo when you're praying use a lot but at least have a garment that is dedicated for Salah even at home. And when you're praying you put it on just to pray with the pajamas on or the sister your hijab half of the hair is showing and you just grab anything and and sometimes we pray and while you're praying our our showing in the back and so just have something dedicated for this a lot and wear it every time that you would like to pray in sha Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said, Who Xena TOCOM in the Kundalini Masjid dress
properly at any place of sujood Masjid here it could mean the masjid and it could mean anytime or anywhere that you perform your your Salah so now we are ready we have all these feelings and we're about to start our our salah.
Every action must have an intention. Right? So when I am about to pray, I have to have the intention that I am about to pray door or acid or measure any salad but the only day
difference is that we do not utter the intention very, very common mistake. We do not alter the intention we do not say, I need to undo suddenly or Baraka hardware behind this and in this masjid, no, no, no, Allah knows what you are coming to pray. Now is the time for motive, right? You're not going to pray for Azure right? Now, Allah knows that you're coming to pray this, this solid. So we just have the intention in the heart, there's no uttering of the intention. Did you do say for example, when you want to eat, you say, I intend to eat salad and then you eat salad. I intend to drink soda and then you drink. So you don't say anything. You just have the intention and you do it.
Similarly, when it comes to the salon, you have the intention and the heart. We have to have the intention. Don't get me wrong, but it's in the heart. There's no uttering of the intention. So the intention is in the heart and I say Allahu Allahu Akbar. Now we say Allahu Akbar,
Allah Allahu Akbar, Allah Subhan Allah, and we gave a talk before that it is the most word that we utter on a daily basis is the word Allah Akbar. The most word we say, the people who are praying regularly that people will make their ADKAR after every salah. They are saying Allahu Akbar the most over 300 Something per day, Allahu Akbar. So why not? Alhamdulillah why not? Subhan Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, why Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar is has a very strong, meaning ALLAH SubhanA. Allah Akbar has a very strong impact. Allah is Akbar, Allah is greater than anything I'm thinking about. Allah is greater than my, my home, my family, my business, my and my wealth, my anything, Allah is
greater. I'm declaring that before I start the salad, Allah subhanaw taala is more important than whatever I am thinking. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar and Allah subhanaw taala from his hikma from his wisdom, as we are moving in the salad from one rockin from one pillar to another, we keep repeating it. Why? Because sometimes we get distracted. Sometimes our mind start wandering right? Allahu Akbar. Don't keep up. Forget about what you're about to eat. Forget about the phone. Forget about the meeting. Forget about anything that you're thinking about. Allahu Akbar, every time about to get distracted to start wandering left and right. Allahu Akbar, come back and much greater than what
you're thinking. Subhan Allah, the power of of Allahu Akbar.
Some people start their Salaat by lying. What? Yeah, don't they say Allah Allahu Akbar. Allah is greater than anything I'm thinking about Allah is greater than anything in my life. And I start immediately thinking about everything else that we have just Clyde. How do you say Allahu Akbar and start thinking about everything else. Right? Allahu Akbar. We have to say it in a way that we mean it. It is established in our heart, Allah subhanaw taala said, We're Kabira Jota Kabira proclaim His life is limitless greatness. Allah subhanho wa Taala is is Akbar. When we say Allahu Akbar, five things take place.
When we say Allahu Akbar to the salaat, five things take place number one,
the meeting with the King of Kings starts
officially the meeting starts Allah Akbar. Number one the meeting starts
number two some things that are halal become haram.
Right eatings Halal drink drinking is Halon laughing is halal. Talking is halal. But when I say Allahu Akbar and I enter to the salon, that means I cannot eat I cannot drink and cannot laugh. I cannot just start talking about any matter. No, no no. All these things become not allowed prohibited during the summer. So second, some things that are halal become haram. Third, listen to this.
Our sins Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, When a slave stands to pray, all his sins are brought and placed on his shoulders as he's moving as she's moving to the record, to the bowing and to the Sousou to the prostration all the sins drop. All the sins drop Allahu Akbar. So the first meeting start second something's Halal become haram. And then the sins are placed on my shoulder as a moving, the sins are dropping and I want you to imagine that every time you go to court, and every time you go to sujood number four,
the fourth thing that takes place when we say Allahu Akbar is that a special shaitan His name is pins up, pins up. This shape on has PhD in distraction.
Master in distraction, his jobs
starts to make us think about everything except salaat and assume allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on one of those harbor His name is Othman. He came to him and said yes my mother shaytaan keeps distracting me when I'm reading the Quran He taught him what to do. He said turn to your left and and you spit with air only not with the with the actual spirit three times out of lunch I would have learned Shakeology
Okay, to your left, okay.
If you felt like the shaitan is really whispering and distracting you from from the salad and the Hadith Asahi hadn't seen the Bihac And the fifth thing that takes place when we are say Allahu Akbar, and I want you to think about that is think about your self and compare your size to others creations of Allah azza wa jal think how how great is Allah subhanaw taala how how I am so so insignificant compared to other creations of Allah subhanaw taala you know, I want you to think and I'm going to put a clip on watch this clip in sha Allah Tala and see how small we are in the in the dunya. And how small is this earth, we are in this earth and we are so small in the earth, look at
our size or the earth size compared to other planets watch this please with me.
Allah Allah Allah,
can you cannot see the earth anymore Subhanallah and the earth completely disappeared, you cannot even see it
so my brothers and sisters look insignificant the size of the Earth, and I am small and small, very small that in that Earth on that Earth Subhanallah so
Allahu Akbar, Allah was greater. Allah is greater than anything I'm thinking about. And I am right now standing before the creator of all that. And before the creator of more than that, things that I cannot even see things that no one has discovered yet, even SubhanAllah. I want you to think about your size, when you are making sujood you are making Sousou to the creator of all that you have seen. And this is only one Milky Way compared to millions of Milky Way's Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, comes from the heart. Allahu Akbar, you know, you're entering to the meeting and you are in front of the one you love the most. Allahu Akbar SubhanAllah. Now, when we say Allahu Akbar, we raise our
hands, right, we raise our hands. Now, the raising of the hands, the hands are closed, and the fingers are closely tied to each other. And I have two positions, and they are both authentic, either up to the shoulders, right here or up to the ears. Many people think they have to touch the ears. You don't have to touch the ear, the head, you said by the ears. So I can say that this Allahu Akbar, or Allahu Akbar. They are both authentic, both authentic, what do I do which one Subhanallah the more I get my mind involved in the salaat the more or the closer I am to Sure. So one time I do this, and one time I do that, one time I do this one time I do that. Now. The hadith is in narrated
by Ibn Ahmad in Bukhari and Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told us that you raise your hands at the beginning of the salaam tech be rattling around, and you raise your hands before you go down to Roku and you raise your hands before after you get up from Rico. All these are mentioned in the Hadith in Bukhari, and in in Muslim. And so we raised our hands in the salon, which was a sunnah, raising the hands
for positions in the beginning of the beard, before you go down to the core, when you get up from record, and when you get up from the sitting, the first sitting, you're getting up to the third record, you raise your hands also. Now
when you raise your hands Subhanallah you know, you know when someone is, I want you to feel that as if you have the whole dunya in the back of your hands and you're throwing it behind your back. Allahu Akbar the whole dunya is here. Allah Akbar, you're throwing the dunya behind your back and when
When someone you want to be when someone for example, ask you to give up everything you have already do.
I submit now you're submitting to Allah azza wa jal I submit to you yeah Allah subhanaw taala now, all this 10 minutes, seven minutes, whatever time the Salah is going to take all that yeah Allah is going to be concentrating about how much
I'm looking for your mercy. How much I'm looking for your forgiveness how much I'm worried about your your your punishment how much I love you yeah Allah, I'm talking to Allah subhanaw taala remember, we are talking to Allah subhanaw taala and there's a lot and we are not going to rush Allahu Akbar. This is our first step in sha Allah Tala in the beginning of the meeting. So Charlot Allah tomorrow, we will move. Now we are actually in the slot. We're going to go in details, from the meaning of our will from the meaning first is the dua before the Fatiha and we will discuss how many authentic dua there are before the Fatiha and then we will discuss our bIllahi min ash shaytaan
regime and then the whole Fatiha
and then we will discuss the recall and getting up from ruku and decision step by step hoping that Allah subhanaw taala at the end of this program in sha Allah Tala, we will be from the people who are really having sure in in their solid. I mean, you're bright I mean, my dear brothers and sisters, I ask Allah azza wa jal to make it easy for us to implement everything that we're learning. May Allah make us from the people who listen and apply May Allah azza wa jal save our necks from the hellfire. May Allah subhanaw taala increase us an Eman May Allah azza wa jal protect our children from any harm may Allah protect our parents from any harm. May Allah fill all our homes with love
and mercy and tranquility and nearby enemies but Salalah lot of you know I'm gonna do it early he was I mean Subhan Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah Allah and the stuff Heruka when he told me like, see ultimate inshallah shall
