Now beginning of laughable praise and glory belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds and Peace and blessings of Allah upon Mohammed
is messenger and prophet and made a Peace and blessings of Allah be upon his family in his companions and all those loyal to him. We testify that none is worthy of worship, but the law alone without any partners at the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was indeed His Prophet, and a servant and His Messenger. And the truth is the words the words of Allah and the guidance of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the most dangerous of matters, the newly added matters into the religion for every single one of them is leading the strain on the means to the fire.
We can tell you with why we pray, all right.
And once again, we are trying to unbundle if you will, the
vast opportunities that the salon provides for us
and we are up to the 28 unique characteristic of the solid and that is that solid is a cause for success and for victory in this world, and the hereafter.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says by def la halaman minimoon la Vina Winfield sala de him call Sharon Ray, they have certainly succeeded the believers, those who are humbled in their prayers. So these believers, because they are believers, they have automatically succeeded there is success. But what is the description of these believers that have success? their very first quality is those that are humbled in their slaughter
And so till Allah Allah azza wa jal says, The F Lucha Manta Zakat was that Kairos ma P. FOSS Allah Fossella, he has certainly succeeded the one who purifies himself.
And what is the description of a person that purifies himself that versus continuing see
whether Kairos Merapi and he had to remember the name of his Lord, for soil and then he prayed,
when it relevant mentioned is referring psalteries right. And a person mentioned a lot with that they could be wrong,
and then fell soil and then he makes the soil as a lot to bury. But regardless of whether it is specific to soldering, or to all the solids, that are preceded by the remembrance of Allah, what that will do or that are far more suited our daughter and why there's old remembrance, he has certainly succeeded once again success, that person that has purified himself and he had remembered his Lord that He prayed.
And of course, the connection between soul and success is crystal clear the and then when you say hey, Allah, hi Allah.
Allah come to the prayer come to success. They go hand in hand.
And the connection between salah and victory. We said that Salah is the greatest way of remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Allah says, Yeah, even Latina mano, is Allah free to attend butuh with guru LA. Oh believers, when you meet a fish, the opposing party may be opposing army, fifth bullet to the So stand firm with kuroh law and remember a law. That's what's going to help you stand firm in the face of adversity. That's what's going to help you attain victory. This is the meaning. And perhaps that is the reason why all laws legislated for the Muslims. So out to hold the fear prayer, what's the fear?
What's the fear? Whenever you're afraid to go play the fear, pray right. What's the fear?
So what is it that's out? There is like, what is this here for?
sisters, you want to help rescue the brothers.
The brothers into a free dimension with the fear prayer is
right. The prayer invents a laws that legislated for this oma that when the Muslim armies in battle
Even then there are the excuse for not free, but he legislated for them because the circumstances demanded Yes, time is of the essence a modified version of the bread. So if your break took us half the army freeze one lock on the other half will bring the other cost so you're bringing one marker in reality, but the point of reference that we want to quote here is what? Perhaps the reason why Salah was not
perhaps the reason why salsa was not excused altogether even in battle is because Salah is an integral part of preparing the believers are to earn victory. So he needs solavei then more than ever, and those are laws prescribed the fear, prayer or love are
also the connection between salah and success and victory, the
loss of clarity. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there in in Emma Yun sama, young Sula, who had the oma Billerica Indeed Allah gives victory to this to this nation, by virtue of the weakest members of it. And then he says, Be Darwin see him will be solid see him and other narration will be a philosophy him by virtue of their supplications and their soul so the soul is connected to victory of this oma, the soul of the week is an especially important part. And the day of the week is especially important parts of victory coming to this oma and other inheritances and due to their sincerity as well, because you know, the weak members were the weak members, by the way, what are
the weak members of the community? Those that can do the least amount of push ups, right? Or the weak members of the community?
Know About logins victory to this oma by virtue of its weakest members, the members of this own so they're Muslims.
No, no, the weakness here is the worldly weakness, meaning their dependence, right? So we're talking about the wife, the child, the elderly, right? They are an asset to the oma by virtue of their Salah by virtue of their dura by virtue of their sincerity. Why is the weak person especially such an asset?
What's so special about the leek verse? sisters help.
I'm asking the sisters why this is so special towards the victory of the oma.
That's an aspect of your strike shabwa whatever the weakness.
I just said that. Why?
How come the week they're solid, so effective?
Last one go. Because
the weakness when a person acknowledges their weakness, this is what activates your aura, right? better chance of you getting accepted. When you show desperation. Sometimes it's easier for a person that can recognize his own weakness to speak to a level of more sincerity and more
humility. Why is the travelers door accepted and the fasting persons who are accepted
and the oppressed persons that are accepted? Those are all one howdy? Why those guys?
Because the traveler he's a little bit more humble. He's worried he's not around and feels a little farriers vulnerable? Will I ever see my family? Right?
The fasting person you feel a little weaker and fragile when you're fasting. So you're accepted, more more likely to be accepted? And the oppressed person is a person that's feeling victimized, right, feeling that he is being subjugated, right. He's not powerful enough to avenge himself. This is there is acceptance of the reasons.
And so the week the orphans, the needy, the elderly, the women, the children, they shouldn't ever be seen as a burden, by the way, because the Hadith says that you are given victory through them. Right. Sometimes a person could be even be deprived of his risk by His provision at home because of his sins, but Allah who will provide for him
because of the other members of his family, right? So he couldn't consider them a burden. They could be the source of goodness and sustenance in your life.
You know it's like the issue of sins preventing you and you're getting to eat on somebody else's tab
the higher incidence of dementia I believe
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said
and no people withhold paying visit can have their wealth that's a big sin right 11 minute rule cutter Amina summer while lol by her MLM
they stop, they withhold thing there's a gap, Allah will withhold the rain from the skies, provisions and we're not for the grazing animals they would receive no rain at all. Meaning sometimes these droughts we see are because of collectively with holdings Academy
and the times that it rains it could be because of the animals not because of you so you're eating on the cows tab Forgive me for the expression right. So a person should not consider the weaker more inferior you know, extensions or
members of the community as a burden rather than it could be an acid lung is victory to the soma through the end of the week.
And so LSL was used to see RSM Rama juris kala, kala, when you give importance to the commands of Allah likes Allah, then Allah will give you importance and significance then you will be earning victory. And Allah,
Allah will you submit academic only if you give support to a lot, meaning the cause of Allah by upholding his religion, will he give you support, and he will keep your feet firm, in order to keep the feet for
the LMS and keep the feet firm means to keep your feet firm in the battlefield, right? So you don't turn around and run and to keep your feet firmly on the straight path. So you don't deviate. And to keep keep your feet firm in the grave when you're being interrogated. And to keep your feet firm in the hereafter when you're walking across the salon. All of that. Because think about it, it all one leads to another. You have to be pleasing in the sight of what's earned the victory and to be to be a continuous recipient of guidance. Right. And if you are a one who received guidance his whole life, Allah is not going to trick you in the end and allow you to mess up in the questioning of the
grave. And if you don't all of that correctly, Allah will carry you across the surah one leads to the next and this all of these meetings that Cisco has gave us correct
and I've lost so this isn't the foreign and he declared that he said we'll call him love or any Morocco and Allah had declared I am with you let him come to musala if you establish the prayer
and a lot of Alina imechanica
masala those that whom when we establish them in the land they established the prayer
you know in the end of time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said to us that this the stone and the tree will call out to the believer and see yeah after the love right oh slave for love. You know the Heidi.
Come behind me right is hiding here. Can you imagine? Oh slave of Allah? Would that be sent to someone who doesn't make solid?
Can is that even imaginable? How can you be considered a slave a lot when he does not feel powerless, he feels free to ignore the appointment of Allah subhana wa Tada. He doesn't feel bound to those appointments five times a day, at the very least.
And he also told us something about her. I didn't know that at the end of time when a law surgeon permits for the return of recently served Jesus the son of Mary. And Allah grants him in the midst of his victory isn't the jail the Antichrist, the false messiah, he said and I love will command the earth to release its blessings. And the people will live in a time of prosperity. And Allah will cause the animals to become peaceful even when for nothing. And the fruits to grow, the produce will be of immense sizes. He said to the degree that a group of men are split meaning 10 or less men will sit there eating from a pomegranate and then they will seek shade it shall you imagine, right? He
said some of them and at that time, just so you understand who is this generation that will earn that and at that time, one such the Salah one sujood will be more beloved to them, and the whole world and everything in it.
So once there are people who message there's more beloved to then the whole world and everything in it.
Then this generation has begun to arrive, then perhaps that generation is here now, as will receive all those promises.
The 29th unique virtue of solar is that solar saves a person from the punishment of the grief.
The best thing a person can furnish his grief with and prepared his grief with is the obedience of Allah subhanho wa
Taala so that's his main caffarelli he gufu whomever disbelieves that upon Him will be his disbelief it will be held against him.
Woman Amina oily Humphrey fusi him em Hatsune and whomever does righteousness, then it is for their own selves that they are paving it they are preparing
Magellan Rajab Allah but this idea.
He said, finally, I'm forcing him to do and for themselves. They are paving. He says meaning in their graves. They're paving for themselves agreed. A comfortable stay in the grief
of the word novice or the number one Mahanama used to say tuba
Lehman banner abre who complained yet cool. I'm
glad tidings congratulations to the person who's smart enough, right? He says who builds his grave before he enters it. He doesn't mean the physical building. It doesn't mean to dig the grave. Someone will take care of that for you. Right.
He is someone who builds his grave before he enters it. What Sarah can do near Atlanta to Cabo and he divorces this world before it divorces him.
And he pleases his Lord before he meets him.
And the height the venison numerical hill behind Buhari and Muslim, he said Salalah on user behavior, you all know that three things are all the dead person to his grave. And then to go back and one remains is followed by his wealth and his family in his deeds. Those are the three and then his wealth and his family return those are the two and his deeds remain.
And then in the era of nursing or the law and the famous long about the journey of the soul up into the heavens and coming back down into the grave that he must have heard
of the most graphic detailed authentic adding an entire sermon.
He said salovaara isn't part of it had been for the believing sleeve. He said and then when he answers the questions correctly, there comes to him from the comfort and the fragrance of paradise.
And his grave is widened once again preparing furnishing his grave is widened for him for as wide as his eyes can see. He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then a man comes to him with a beautiful face beautiful garments, clothes and a beautiful smell. And he says to him Who are you this is a face that only comes with good news. He said I am your good deeds right this Sala arrives. And you know the hadith of
a very beautiful Hadith
about what Salah does for a person after they die. He said to us the Hadees narrated by him. He said
that when a when a person dies, he's placed in his grief.
And then he hears the footsteps of his family leaving as they walk away from him Is everybody. Then he said some of ours for in Canada Mina that if he is a believer,
will Sala is brought and placed that his head does Allah actually has a material to materialize. And it's placed that his head and fast the Muslim is placed that is right.
And his his Zakaria support his charities are pleased that his left and then his acts of goodness in his command, the good and forbidding evil being gracious with the people all this benevolence of his is placed at his feet, he sets a lava lamp and so the punishment of the grave the flames, so the punishment comes from his head. And so the scholar itself says the soul is speaking as if it's a person, the soldier says, map the belly method. There's no entrance here. You're not getting him through me.
And so the punishment comes through this right? And the fastening says Matthew by the method is no entrance here. You're not coming in through from my direction. And then so the punishment comes from his left. He's surrounded by punishment, but he's, he's in a protective case of his good deeds. It comes from his left and his zeca and his charities they see that you're not getting into my direction and then it comes to him from below and his act of grace.
Is this a monthly payment for there's no insurance here. So that saves a person from the punishment of the grave that would otherwise surround him. Number 30
is that solar is the wish of the dead, those that have died, if the greatest wishes is to have solar
panels, narrative and authentic shame.
He says of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed by I agree. And he said, What's great is this. They said so and so. The name was mentioned. So he said to them, some of them are attorney, Attorney Matt
I have to LA
to light our costs, which you belittle.
Like make fun of us, you wouldn't be a Muslim, we little meaning you don't think they're that big. What, if known, and you offer them voluntarily mean they're not even obligations.
We're this person to be able to add them to his deeds right now. And he pointed at the grave, he said is dearer to him than everything that remains of your world. He could just add two more accounts. So it's the wish of the deceased once he dies.
Ibrahim is visited agua de la, he says attorney react by syriaca Pisces one of the great scholars of his time as a place he came to me.
And he says you have us have something to offer him.
So realize he says to him, Airbus have come let us visit the people of the hereafter he needs to remind ourselves of those that are already have already moved on to the hereafter. Let us renew our relationship with the people of the hereafter. refresh our memories, reacquaint ourselves not
to reacquaint ourselves with them
says so we got there. Once we got to the graves, we sat down. And then he said, he said to me, no
matter how much money or no money, this person, he pointed at the agreements that this person buried right here, if he had a wish, what do you think it would be?
So he said, he said, he says, So I said to him, that our ma send him back to this world
so that he could enjoy an opportunity to obey Allah subhanho wa Taala and fix the things he must often rectify his affairs.
So react says,
Well, here we are, right? He's not gonna get that. So why don't we act like we're that person. Here we are in his place.
He says, Sorry, I help. I said, Here we are. And then he got up and he got even more dedicated his worship, right, he refilled his gas tank with his visit to the grave. And that's when Carlos also advised me to visit the graves, because it reminds me of the hereafter this interest in the dunya. He says so he got up and he became even more devout in his worship. And very soon thereafter, he died.
You know, a lot so he
had the he had a note, all of June, when that finally comes to one of them is Oh, my Lord, send me back, Langley, Arkansas, and FEMA Iraq, so that I may do good deeds in this world that I left behind. A lot. So justice can learn in kennametal, who are called elucha knows, rather it is a word that he says.
You know, there are scholars mentioned regarding this idea
in their head Kelly Mattoon, who according to her it is both a word he says
some of the scholars said this is the statement of the dead person.
Or this is referring to the dead person saying send me back. I'll do good. So our laws are the same to him. No, no, no, it's just the word that he says he's all talk. Right? All he can do is wish he had his chance. The other seed of the idea is that no, you're not going back Kela in a hair Kelly motto. It is a word that he knew that he simply says meaning a law. When he says a word. It's done. He said Your time is up your time is up. He said nobody comes back to duty after leaving it, it said and it's done.
Both the proceeds go hand in hand. Meaning the language carries the potential of both of them in the room or and by the way is that Allah whoever it is
To carry the wide spectrum of meanings, so long as the meanings don't contradict, or contradict anywhere else in the Quran, they can be understood to mean all of them at once loads are odd.
But then our Wiseman speaks about the hereafter elsewhere and he says, well, whom you study who and if we have been a frigid, normal soil
and they scream, very demeaning of the hellfire. And they say, Oh our Lord, send us back.
pull us out of the fire. So we may do good deeds Other than that, which we used to do about this is not to say, well, by Allah, he did not ask to be returned back except to obey Allah. So consider this wish of the disbeliever and act upon it yourself. Consider this wish, and don't be of those people that looks back and says I would have should have could have Don't be that person. Right? I was telling you what they wish you will hear this with your ears. But don't you dare be someone that says it themselves.
Because time time is like to take advantage of your time. You know, this is this concept of that we hear all around us of YOLO right? You only live once. This is true. You only live once meaning you only have this one opportunity right now. Do whatever you can to keep putting things off the important stuff because you only live once. No, no, we live here a very temporary life. You know what
to say, Man, Allah Shiva inland cache in me, for
my youth, the years of my youth or the that period of being a youth, I consider it nothing. I see that it's nothing except something that was in my sleeve and fell out. Meaning you hardly ever felt feel felt that go Whoa, where in the world this happened. I'm sitting here cracking jokes Oh, my parents used to do back in the day. And now I'm here their age with their white hairs. And they're gone and forgotten and folded up in the history books. And soon those history books will will wear out as well. And My turn is coming The train will continue and I'm ready to get plugged in the world keeps going.
And that's why he told us all about how to set up take advantage of five before five write your life before your death. Your youth before your old age, your wealth before you become poor, your free time before you become busy and your health before you become sick.
Because most people want and they only want it when it's too late. That's when they want it bad enough when it's too late. Right? And they wish they could
but at a time when all they could do is wish and they're separated from the studio before they ever thought they would.
ln 10 minutes a child was legit the number 31
is that Sala saves a person from the flames of a loss. So gentlemen here after
the height of Ennis, very interesting Howdy, the province of abohar syllabuses in Manila American united during the coldest Salatin Benny Adam Irani community open to her outfit.
Allah has an angel
that calls out at the time of each prayer. Oh Children of Adam of human beings. Get up towards your fires which you can build which you lit. What are the fires that you lit
Now what is the fire that you lit yourself?
You Siddons, right, you qualified yourself for being burned by this fire. You lit that fire for yourself? Oh, children of Adam. Get up to your fires which you lit and put them out, put them out out at solar equals out of the solar. This is your opportunity. You looked at fire, here's your chance.
you burn and you burn.
Then you pray.
The morning prayer. And so it washes it when you burn you burn when you do things that qualify you for burning. He says awesome. Then you burn and you burn and then you pray the food appraiser washes it and you burn and you burn the bread the awesome prayer then washes it and you burn a new burn to bring them out of the purge washes it and you burn and you burn until you pray the prayer and it washes it.
He says to Matera mood
and then you finally go to sleep and nothing is written against you until you wake up again. Meaning we do stuff that qualifies us by day by night. So this solar is what washes away these things.
And Muslim hater Mr. Weaver.
He said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said nearly had no language. And now I can solve the problem.
Nobody will enter the fire that prays before the sunrises and before the sunsets, meaning fetch and
fetch is one of the most difficult prayers to me. And Sala Ross is one of the busiest times of the days when your day is getting wrapped up, and you have to make sure you got all your money and you sold all your products and you're getting home in time for dinner and you're catching that trade and everyone else is rushing and of the busiest times of the day, it doesn't mean that you bring those supers, you don't bring the rest of your fine, right. But this is just an indication that the person who is consistent upon even the most difficult prayers will not enter the fire. And obviously that means that you can't be catching the rest of the Braves.
But even even the person that commits sins, so long as he's he didn't commit the sin of leaving solid.
That will save that will protect him as a person sometimes. Should one comes to me says How can you pray after you've done X, Y and Z? Right? We say pray is the prayer Well, I will either get you to stop committing the sin we already talked about that or do away with a bit of the punishment from the sin. Or at the very least it'll qualify you if you get punished for the sin that the punishment at one point in time will end
you know in
the province of
when love wishes, when a law has concluded judging between these sleeves
What are you free German No, man arada yohanna mi, mi, la Loma, and then he wishes to pull out of the fire those who he wishes to have mercy on. From the people that testify. There's no God but Allah, obviously the ones who has mercy on those who are what who died was the will remain Muslim, or at least have the seat of a man. So I'm officially judging between the slaves and then he wishes to remove from the fire. Those he wants to have mercy on from those
that testify that there is no God but Allah amaura. Whom, to whom? Ferarri for whom
he commands them, them, humans, the angels to pull them out of the fire. And they recognize them by the mark of their prostration
a lot for bids on the fire from eating that spot of the person even if the fire devoured the person. Even if Allah forbid, a person spends 1000s of years paying his sentence in the fire serving his sentence, the fire will devour him over and over again. But that part of his body will not be devoured. And when the time comes that our work chooses mercy on this person, how much
how much above the prayer, he tells him Go get them and angels recognize him as the guy that needs to do is get him out.
And he gets recognized by that sign of subdued on his face, because Allah forbids the fire to touch it. Other ahaadeeth mentioned that when that person is taken out
from the fire or what brings them to a fountain that is known as metal higher and it says that the water or the fountain of life if you will, and it causes the rest of their bodies to to regrow and they sprout the way a seed sprouts out of the ground then they're brought into paradise and they're known as agenda you and the people that came out of them then they're known as
those that were liberated by a man or a man the Most Merciful mean they didn't even deserve to come out but it's only because I love is the Most Merciful right? That they qualify by simply being Muslims to come out eventually.
says well, p mu salata will add to the character, one or two pandemonium fusi come in, hi, g do worry
and establish the prayer. And pay does occur. The two most important acts right the two pillars of Islam after the Shahada, then what does he say about acts like these isn't whatever you send for the for yourself? You will find it there for you. Without law.
That means Allah and in other words, they beat you to the hereafter and they wait for you there right? You send it forward. And then Allah says for yourself, you're not doing it wrong. You're doing it for you. Right you're doing it to please our love for your own good not for our money, not for his benefit.
One man to the moon m Fujiko. Matthew said for the hereafter for yourself of good, you will find it there without law. So Salah will you'll find it there to benefit you waiting for you, and it will intercede for you on the last day.
So he beats you there
and intercedes for you. Especially that's a dude of yours
unless he married was how soon and the four accepted imagine from Thailand and she said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Man, half a lot out of our garage in
Maryland now, whoever prays for us before the end for our guys after though
it becomes forbidden for the fire to touch you. So that's solid. We said, our cause for victory and success saves you from the punishment of the grave. It's the wish of the deceased and it saves you from the flames.
There remains to three virtues of solid solid it only gets you into gender but raises your levels.
And then, to the degree of how you perfected your solder will be how you see a must face in the hereafter which is greater than gender. And then Sala has been a guiding light for so many meanings. Allah is one of the biggest doors for people to enter Islam to see the Muslims perform. There's all that go read to a whole bunch of testimonials on that before we move to chapter two, which is the dangers of leaving slaughter and stop there is a lot of
