We love our team and hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen level 100% authentic and Jamila shadow Allah Isla de La Palma Mary could have been overshadowed Ramadan Matsubara growth of our hearts and in our alanine are now stuck on how do you get our body Terada over hominins Allahu alayhi wa sallam, morning in the federal hub, or coulomb activity with regard to Tamala G for now. And the name of Allah the most versus all the bestower of mercy, all praise and glory belongs to Allah, Lord of the Worlds Indeed, Allah is deserving the best of thanks, and the most beautiful phrases and we testify that no one is worthy of worship of Allah alone, without any partners, the true supreme King, the

00:00:44 --> 00:01:19

Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a servant and His Messenger, whom Allah sent as a mercy to the worlds and we testified to choose the words the words of Allah the great Glorious Quran and the best of guidance is the Sunnah the example of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the most dangerous matters the newly added matters into the religion for every single one of them as illegal stray that only leads to the fire. Welcome everybody back inshallah we continue with this which should be our 10th. And we'll be in sha Allah, our final session Salah revisited, or why we pray

00:01:21 --> 00:02:04

after speaking about the importance of Salah and its great status in Islam, and it being the greatest factor to help you in the rest of your Islam. And the first thing we will be asked one of the day of judgment and the greatest thing to liberate you, right from everything that shackles you in this world, and may torment you in the next we just wish to come full circle now and some very important final advices and we shouldn't leave the discussion or the study of Salah without so a few points I'm going to try to squeeze them into 45 minutes with the love of Allah tofield reading from Allah Azza would come all success. The first of them

00:02:05 --> 00:02:25

is our children and salah. How do we ensure after we've now known the importance of Salah that our children will take that from us and do that after us and inherit this in a manner that will benefit them and us. The very first thing

00:02:26 --> 00:02:30

we need to understand is that depending on yourself,

00:02:32 --> 00:02:49

spells out an appointment with disappointment right? Depending on yourself for the guidance of your children is destined in yourself to believe because you don't own your own guidance. So how can you own the guidance of anybody else

00:02:51 --> 00:03:26

and have the greatest components of guidance is making solid correctly. And those defined in the Quran that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada told us that even Ibrahim Ali Salam said, Rob be challenging the masala tea elementary Yeti or have been our mantra, oh my Lord make me of those that truly established and we already discussed the differences praying and establishing the prayer. The one who truly establishes the prayer, me and my offspring, my children as well. So constantly and regularly make that dry and you will see it's effective in the last diligent

00:03:28 --> 00:04:05

after now, the greatest thing to ensure that your children will be those that make solid consistently and correctly is for them to see their parents doing that this is something you know and children the mimic phenomena, right? The child sees you do something they do it for a child, whatever my parents do is correct. And the most complete and perfect human being is my mom and my dad. And that's where a child who sees him two to three years old as soon as they they realize you know their left from their right, they'll make some dude with you and look up to check if they're doing it right and things like this.

00:04:06 --> 00:04:49

And let me add that when you do make solder know that they're noticing more than you realize, like sometimes even we're in Salah, and we're not practical, like we expected to three year old to stay in the Salah all the time without moving or running away. That shouldn't be expected before four years old, for example. But when a parent is like that, even at four and five and six, constantly grabbing their kid in Salah right, stop moving and all this that we see all the time, right? First of all, as I said you're expecting of them more than they can handle it's not gonna work. Second of all they're noticing from you though they're gonna program it later it's in the back in the back.

00:04:49 --> 00:04:54

And right now on the back burner that you don't stay still in your slot.

00:04:55 --> 00:04:59

They're watching you they see from you that you're aware of your surroundings.

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

that will have an effect on them later and make sure concentration hard on them later. So the of the greatest factor is them watching you make salah.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:16

The third factor,

00:05:18 --> 00:05:30

and the fourth and the fifth and the sixth and the seventh. Let's start with the hadith of vulnerable tribe, who narrated from his father who inherited from his grandfather who is on the left number of the Allahu Anhu. He says this is a record available

00:05:31 --> 00:05:44

at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Morrow Allah that can be solidly separate or remove malaika and Yash. Were very poor by now infant Malatya command your children to pray at seven

00:05:45 --> 00:05:48

and strike them for it at 10

00:05:49 --> 00:05:54

and separate between them meaning at that point in their events.

00:05:56 --> 00:05:57

Command your children to grade seven

00:05:59 --> 00:06:15

strike and four to 10 and separate them in their beds. Few things we have to say about this headin. The first thing is, this teaches us because the command that it's an obligation that you command your children to grade seven.

00:06:17 --> 00:06:28

Okay? But remember, the obligation is on you, it's not on them. This is your obligation, not theirs. They're not obligated until they become adults or until they pass puberty

00:06:30 --> 00:06:32

the obligation is on you.

00:06:34 --> 00:06:44

Second of all, the obligation is not to tell them pray because today's your seventh birthday. Right? The obligation means once they turn seven

00:06:47 --> 00:07:00

that means every single prayer five times a day you're obligated to remind them or make sure they prayed or check up on them. And this primarily as the scholars mentioned is the obligation of the father.

00:07:01 --> 00:07:23

That's your duty. So if you're not home for work or otherwise, it's your duty for you to delegate someone and make sure they're fulfilling their job. Whether it's the mother an older sibling or otherwise, that's your job. They need to be praying fetching vocal Ross melody raesha from 730 want to say what the Hadith

00:07:24 --> 00:07:35

if you're obligated to command them to make solar at seven that means they must already know how to make solid before seven right or wrong

00:07:36 --> 00:07:45

because it is law you get obligate someone with something impossible and it's impossible for someone to do something they don't know how to do so they need to know how to do that before you obligate them

00:07:46 --> 00:08:30

that means already by the time therefore they need to know Salah is something you must do fetch is not possible at for debatable I think I may agree with you right but still a solid time you come the harassment regression on your home at least you stand with me that for expected to be there the whole solid right and if they miss something you've pointed out later and then after they've seen you make Salah now and you've commanded them you've encouraged them to make Salah you need to be rewarding them for it. Yes this whole before seven okay. And then also you test them show me how you make solid and already of course you took taking them into the bathroom watching you make wudu now

00:08:30 --> 00:08:32

you make wudu right.

00:08:33 --> 00:08:43

So by the time seven comes you're putting on not talking about birthdays by the way, but you put a big spotlight on the day they turned seven like this is graduation from and you know that

00:08:45 --> 00:09:09

there will be nothing wrong for example, to get them a watch the day they turn 70 Okay, you're in man now, right? You're a woman now. Now you're going to tell us when it's solid time, right? All this needs to happen before seven. Seven becomes. That's it. We've moved on now. Now you're responsible for vive salon every single day. And then you can continue commanding this

00:09:14 --> 00:09:51

until they're 10 because it's command them when they're seven and then strike them for that tenant. Some people think wrongly because they've been stripped with wisdom because they don't want to look at the Hadith and assume the best of the Prophet SAW Salem or the scholars of Islam or whatever they think this hadith is assuming harshness right what do you mean strike my good don't strike your good for Salah you strike it was ALLAH is gonna hit Salah and he's not gonna want to pray and this is wrong. Don't do it. The Prophet SAW Selim said do it. So it's not wrong. But it's harsh. No, no, you thought it was harsh. It's not harsh. Think about it. Think about it. Think about if you are doing

00:09:51 --> 00:09:59

it the way I just said no. You're starting at seven, five times a day. For three years. That's over five

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

1000s reminders later, isn't it? Let's suppose leak where you tell them one time, it's all up during the video game, or supposedly, you're gonna save only once. So it's as if the hadith is see if after 5000 times, they're still not regular on their five prayers, then turn up the notch. They need to know listen, this is getting very, very serious, though, this is non negotiable. And the majority of the scholars said that the striking here is not an obligation. Rather, it is a recommendation to be more stern to show them this is very serious. And obviously, the overriding rule in the Sharia is if there's an outweighing Bennett, overwhelming benefit and not hitting, then you wouldn't hit right.

00:10:47 --> 00:11:10

Right or wrong. And then if you hit the last thing, I want to say what they need so we can move on. And if you hit their guidelines was striking initially, I just further you know, established there's nothing harsh you have the rules for striking I can't talk about it now, right of the guidelines for striking in the dean is that you're not allowed to strike them when you're angry.

00:11:11 --> 00:11:29

You know why? Because the striking is supposed to be a disciplinary measure means the force, the benefit is supposed to discipline them. But if you're striking them because you're mad, when you're mad, you're not striking them for them, you're striking them for you. So you're not going to strike them how much they needed, you're going to strike them how much you want it.

00:11:30 --> 00:11:52

And therefore you're not going to stop striking them until you're satisfied or you see a sad scene in front of you. So you return to your senses. In the height of novice and another new for the Prophet SAW Selim said either lonely but I had to confront Yes. When one of you is angry, he must be silent, so it doesn't mess up. If you're not allowed to speak when you're angry, you think you're allowed to hit when your anger

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

or I'm gonna

00:11:55 --> 00:12:31

need to get angry at someone or you pass a verdict. You throw them in prison for three days first, so that he wouldn't rush and be rash in his punishment because of his anger. That was from his merci Rahim Allah Allah. So likewise, there are guidelines, of course you don't leave a mark, you're not breaking a bone, you're not cutting the skin. You're not doing any of this. It's more of a symbolic kitsch than anything else. And that is the last option. And only if you follow it, everything that preceded that we just mentioned, you don't hear this hadith now. And it's like, Oh, snap on link, right, kids 13 And you go home after the election.

00:12:32 --> 00:12:40

Right now, that's not the way it works. It didn't follow the protocol. So that's your children and salah. That's the first thing wanted to mention.

00:12:41 --> 00:13:06

The second important reminder we want to talk about in Salah is the importance of learning solid curriculum, we all sat through 10 sessions of why we pray at all we really talked about we may have visited little subjects here and there, or little corners of bigger subjects. But we need to keep in mind that it's very key on a person to not waste their prayers.

00:13:08 --> 00:13:11

And part of that is learning how to pray correctly.

00:13:12 --> 00:13:20

As you know the height of Ns let's imagine some of the Hadith some of the scholars name it acceptable that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:13:21 --> 00:13:25

Bala honoring me forever to Allah Cooley Muslims acknowledged and obligation every Muslim.

00:13:26 --> 00:13:49

Of course it doesn't mean that every Muslim has to keep seeking knowledge until it becomes a scholar know that we have to have scholars that says a communal obligation right for it will be failure. But there is an individual obligation over a certain amount of knowledge that we will have to know like our Eman how to believe in Allah azza wa jal like our bajada and Salah how to purify ourselves and stand in front of Allah. Everyone needs to know how to do that. Everybody.

00:13:51 --> 00:14:04

You're liable. You can't be excused by ignorance. When you have access to the knowledge and we're in the age of the internet. I don't think we need to say much more. You need to learn how to pray the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:18

He said in the highest American Hadith narrated by Al Bukhari and Iman was on Luke hemorrhoids money will suddenly and pray, tell him pray, pray as you want on your terms doesn't work. He says, Pray just as you have seen me pray.

00:14:21 --> 00:14:34

To the degree that your prayer is different than the prayer of the Prophet SAW Salem. You could miss out on some edge. Or if your prayer is too different from the Prophet SAW Salem. Your prayer could be invalid altogether.

00:14:36 --> 00:14:38

I'll give you just one quick example.

00:14:40 --> 00:14:50

Just so not to linger on the subject cancer into the class what the Prophet SAW Selim said and heightened slightly more clarity. I was commanded to make sujood on seven bolts

00:14:52 --> 00:14:58

the two feet, two knees the two hands and the face this is considered one bone right the nose in the end for it

00:15:00 --> 00:15:11

Some people due to rushing in salah or negligence or otherwise just being careless because and this usually happens more than more of the time when you're rushing.

00:15:12 --> 00:15:28

They go into sujood and their feet come off the ground. You ever seen that? Their hands, they're on the ground right? And their knees are on the ground with their feet themselves are off the ground. They hold it there for a second. It's like a seesaw. They're coming back anyway, in a split second. They're not staying Institute for very long.

00:15:30 --> 00:15:34

According to someone that forfeits your prayer hands if you didn't pray to begin with.

00:15:36 --> 00:15:45

I'll give you another one. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no salah of what have you is sufficient doesn't have the bare minimums. If

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

his nose does not reach of the ground or his head, and usually people do this as well and so Jude therefore it is on the ground and knows nothing the ground. Let it work with your career. So to the degree that your prayer is different, the prayer of the Prophet SAW said and you could either be missing out on some edge or you could be missing out on the whole Salah and not realizing it. So dedicate yourself to this subject. Learn how to make Salah is something no one can do for you, you must do it for yourself.

00:16:17 --> 00:16:18

The third reminder

00:16:21 --> 00:16:24

the importance of advising others about salah.

00:16:27 --> 00:16:35

Hydretain and Dad It's like Musa and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, do not see how this religion is all about being truthful and sincere

00:16:36 --> 00:17:16

and giving sincere advice. There are the meanings of Alessia, they said to whom Messenger of Allah, He said to Allah and to this book, and His messenger and to the leaders of the Muslims and their masses. That's part of this religion and inseparable part of this religion being true in your relationship to your brothers. A true believer, as he says off a limb is the mirror of his brother, the mirror shows your flaws. Part of being a good Muslim is not just smiling in his face. And Sam are they gonna give Halligan to laughs and we all walk away. Part of that is worrying about him. Honestly, wishing that you could figure out a way to fix him make him better. You honestly should

00:17:16 --> 00:17:36

want your brother to be better than you. You should because you're not supposed to want to be where you are. You're supposed to want to be better than you are right? You're supposed to want to improve your condition. And you're supposed to love for your brother which you love for yourself. So you want your brother also to be better than you. That's part of being a true genuine believer.

00:17:37 --> 00:17:40

So a part of that is when you see your brother

00:17:41 --> 00:17:47

not to pray. Or you see your brother or your sister praying in correctly you tell them

00:17:49 --> 00:18:16

you know the hadith of animosity Salah demanded prayed poorly. The Prophet SAW Selim kept telling him it'll Jeff will suddenly find McCallum to suddenly go back and pray for you have not prayed. Go back and pray for you have not prayed, go back and pray you have not prayed he was praying. But it wasn't sufficient. But it was invalid prayer. He was bouncing out of the works. Dude, he wasn't coming to a standstill in every position. This is unacceptable. And it's unacceptable for a Muslim to let his brother do that.

00:18:18 --> 00:18:52

That doesn't mean that you say necessarily exactly what the Prophet SAW Selim said, because they're always in a position of authority. So he tells someone go back and pray you haven't prayed. It's high too low. It's acceptable. You can speak to someone of your subjects of your followers like that with the near with your brother and your peers in the masjid. You stop them and say if exam Allah will allow you to do something nobody else does. You know who comes to the masjid these days and masajid are empty. And I admire you and your dedication. And every time I come I see you here. I just I wish to tell you something it was please don't get upset if you have to promise not to get

00:18:52 --> 00:18:57

upset. I heard the chef mentioned the Prophet SAW Selim said XY and Z.

00:18:58 --> 00:19:15

The last word is be careful about that's it. And if he gets mad at you let it go. And he will realize either for that moment or from you forgiving him when he steps at you or any other reason that you were sincere in your advice.

00:19:16 --> 00:19:25

And if you are sincere you're going to pick the best way to say that advice. When the point is figured out you being silent about this is not an option.

00:19:29 --> 00:19:51

Remove and Mahanoy you know listening very beautiful about this. He says the example of someone who sees a man praying incorrectly and does not stop him is like someone who sees a sleeping person being attacked by a snake and he does not awaken him. You're never true brother. Right? You're letting this guy get stung. You're letting him you know be hit with this and you're letting it go. You can't let it go.

00:19:52 --> 00:19:59

And it was reported ultimate Muhammad Rahim Allah Allah. That's when he says there's some controversy about ascribing this am I

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

But, but nonetheless, it's reported about that. He said, know that if a man prays correctly, he prays correctly. And then he sees someone who prayed incorrectly or negligently or he outrace is the man when he's speeding past the man in the gym. And he remains silent about pointing that out.

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

Nor advising him that he shares with him in that scene.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:40

And also, when you do this, keep in mind that you're correcting more than this person's prayer. Remember what we said about teaching your kids to break kids watch the parents. So consider that you're correcting him and those whoever's watching him. Whoever he's a, he's an example for him. You can think about him or what he mentioned.

00:20:41 --> 00:21:03

He says before he assumed any positions and hedgers you guys know what to do with the big sword. Right before he was a man with a was bloodthirsty. He was very evil to many of the writers of his time. He says I'll hijack one spray next to Ceridian musei. So it will save you notice the amount of a temporary one of the greatest scholars, bar none.

00:21:04 --> 00:21:08

Perhaps the most knowledgeable of all of the Tegrity in the generation after the Sahaba

00:21:11 --> 00:21:19

he was sitting there in the prophets Miss Susan Medina and her judgment Ford had just became the governor right, came and prayed next to him and had judge was

00:21:20 --> 00:21:26

pray, racing with the man going ahead of the Imam at the same time of the Imam.

00:21:27 --> 00:21:36

And when they finished the Salah, serrated Musa grabbed the clothing of a pet judge and he's continuing to make his dick

00:21:37 --> 00:21:42

every time we'll have a genuine stand up you will pull him down and he's continuing to make his dick

00:21:44 --> 00:21:59

and then only finish his neck he turned to him and he says to me haha in yes and you traitor, you thief. You betrayed your commitment to Allah like this right? And you have stolen from us? What are your remedies? Or how do you recover in the past? He says to solve the heavy Salah

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

How dare you pray like this, I was on the verge of taking my shoes and doing this and that to you. Right? I leave out the details. But once again, keep in mind, don't say this is somebody this is Satan will save someone that nobody will talk back and he knew he had that authority. And so he would use it not for his ego. But for the sake of Allah. Keep that in mind. This is key. Nobody in our age has that authority in anybody's hearts, to be honest with you. So nobody has the right to speak to anybody like that. Please keep that in mind.

00:22:30 --> 00:22:33

But anyhow, he says this to him, and unhygenic didn't do anything.

00:22:35 --> 00:22:41

He left after the Hajj season. I've been Melek takes turns Hajaj into the wedding, the governor of Medina

00:22:43 --> 00:22:49

at the time, and then he sends him back and the people hear news that a judge has reached Medina.

00:22:51 --> 00:22:57

And her judge now is coming back in full authority. Now he's the governor is the wording.

00:22:58 --> 00:23:05

And then he enters the messages and all the people know what's about to happen. So he about to die.

00:23:07 --> 00:23:18

And he asked them where Simon was saying and he comes in and sits right in front of him. He says you're the guy who said to me that no one can imagine you're the guy who told me those statements last year.

00:23:20 --> 00:23:27

Society will say it takes his hand and he strikes in his chest said yes, I'm the one who says meaning relax, calm down. Not gonna run from you.

00:23:30 --> 00:23:32

He said to him just ask Allah who

00:23:33 --> 00:23:51

may Allah reward you with the very best. Meanwhile the minimum wage and even high law is a desert Allah may Allah reward you for being such a teacher and such a player disciplinarian, you know, may Allah reward you for that with the very best. He said, I did not make a prayer after that day, except that I remembered your words.

00:23:53 --> 00:24:07

And you know, those that read the martyr had had judge they knew that he caused disasters on one end, but at times many times when he was advisement has celibacy, and others he would, you know, he would come to his senses at least for a few minutes. Right? He would accept the advice

00:24:09 --> 00:24:19

and so on. Think about that. When you give someone advice you don't know who's behind this person. You don't know who's influenced by this person. So don't shy away. Don't shy away from that.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:40

fellated Marriott Mola he mentioned. He says that Maliki dinar Rahim Allah, regarding the same point once saw a man praying poorly. So he said Mr. hamady very early, How I pity his children. I feel so bad for his kids.

00:24:42 --> 00:24:46

So the people said this person is negligent in his prayer.

00:24:49 --> 00:24:53

What does it have to do with this kids? Meaning Allah who will not give them the sin of their father?

00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

He said yes, yes. I don't mean they're gonna get his sister praying bed, but he's there in my

00:25:00 --> 00:25:05

And and they have no one to learn from him obviously they're gonna pray like him so I feel bad for them

00:25:08 --> 00:25:18

that was the third advice right your children and then learning to pray early and then learning how to pray and then advising others about the Salah number four

00:25:20 --> 00:25:23

is to hasten to rush to pray early.

00:25:26 --> 00:25:34

Part of securing that you will be someone who establishes the Salah is to follow the Sunnah in every aspect of the Salah.

00:25:38 --> 00:25:46

A part of that Sunnah of the most emphasized parts of the Sunnah regarding Salah is you prayed when the time first comes in

00:25:47 --> 00:25:52

every soul as soon as it comes unless you have an excuse you pray right then and there.

00:25:53 --> 00:25:59

That's ideal. That should be the norm everything else should be the exception.

00:26:00 --> 00:26:19

Safe or maybe we shall at the end of the first third of the night as we ahaadeeth mentioned promises to deliver sherbets classes at runtime that will that is the ideal time. But the norm is what is the most beloved lead to Allah we covered the Hadith he says he says praying on time another narrations bring it the beginning of its time.

00:26:23 --> 00:26:46

And as you know what he says and Allah had this word. I constantly hate quoting it, this statement, because I see it so much is my life and I'm guilty of it, even though I'm the one that sells it to the people and realizes whoever delays something beyond its time will hardly ever find time for it again.

00:26:48 --> 00:26:49

You know that's true.

00:26:50 --> 00:26:51

Try it, well don't

00:26:52 --> 00:27:22

write but look for it, you'll see. Likewise, if you delay the salah beyond its time, if you give it the leftovers, you're not gonna pray the same slaughter, you're gonna find some five minute corner for the last commercials for the football before this a lot of time ends during the football game or whatever else right? If you delay it beyond its time without a reason, your time will be stripped of its blessings and you will hardly find time for it to get it. Even if you do pray. You're not gonna pray the same way.

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

And so he said he said he says to pray early.

00:27:29 --> 00:27:35

The last thing I want to mention and I want to spend the remainder of the talk on 1520 minutes I'll be done shower

00:27:38 --> 00:27:39

is salt and veg.

00:27:41 --> 00:28:09

And if we said that Salah your salah is the most accurate way to measure your religious commitment. Your prejudice Allah in particular is the most accurate way of all to measure your religious commitment. And if you wish to understand why the condition of the Ummah is as it is, in our day and age, let's consider solid vision amongst our own. What percentage of the 1.5 billion grade

00:28:13 --> 00:28:18

of loan of that minority what percentage of them preys on time?

00:28:20 --> 00:28:24

And then of those men that prey on time how many of them range amount

00:28:26 --> 00:28:31

and then have them that range and now how many of them prefer to the generic congregation

00:28:33 --> 00:29:08

it's as if this is abrogated it was for a rule for another woman. Right and we are all guilty of this we can all improve on this. But isn't it justice then that Allah subhanaw taala sent upon the Sunnah, those that will not fear Allah regarding us nor have any mercy to honor us. In Allah Allah uma Bowman, Hatha Yoga euro euro mafia, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change that which within themselves all that we see around us, right we have two choices either to ignore what we're doing wrong

00:29:09 --> 00:29:11

and blame it on Allah.

00:29:12 --> 00:29:36

Or we need to figure out what we're doing wrong and veggies one of the easiest most obvious standout right dilemmas is the woman now and blame ourselves. There is no other option guys. We don't worship a god that's unjust or is cruel or is weak or breaks his promises. So it's either going to assume the worst of yourself, or you're going to assume the worst of all Allah, but there's no other way to understand what's happening in America.

00:29:38 --> 00:29:39

And so swatted fridge.

00:29:40 --> 00:29:41

So love adventures.

00:29:44 --> 00:29:48

Is an appointment like any other appointment and an appointment.

00:29:49 --> 00:30:00

You if it's important to you you'll make time for it right or wrong. You ever heard heard of somebody and slipped through a flight almost never take it for go

00:30:00 --> 00:30:10

She's to make sure you make it slept through your SATs never MCAT it's not gonna happen right? Someone that comes too late to work every single day

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

you know

00:30:15 --> 00:30:51

if a person you know that employee that comes one day it says I'm really sorry just the district there was training that you guys need to train like we do in New York, but there was train problem and the next day I was really sorry. She said, Oh, my, my wife, my wife was sick, right? And the third day is like, I'm sorry, my great grandfather died, you know, and the fourth day like his dog tripped over you know, a Twizzler and to take him to the veterinarian. After a while it's just like, if this was important to you, you would have made time for it right is obviously the last thing on your list and we can't accept all of this right Fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me

00:30:51 --> 00:31:03

right? I remember him adore him oh wait, they will ask him K for Daddy forgive them in how do you know Elia call them email led by their appointments, right? A person is to consider

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

the hourly the appointments that you make, you may not intend on line with even when you give too many appointments, you know that you're either lying to yourself or lying to the person in front of you, you know, you can make all these appointments.

00:31:18 --> 00:31:42

You know, the great scholar that I took the series from and I mentioned his name many times I come home and say no, but I visited his office once and I found the sign on the door on the inside of his door. And I will not forget until today for a number of reasons of those reasons that I know this about him that he actually holds himself to this rule. The sign said was on top of his door, it said I'm Ronnie lyase lemma liminal can be

00:31:44 --> 00:32:01

kept bottled memory were shifted to their terroir, su things that will hardly ever be free from lying, that will ever escape lying. Too many appointments and intense apologies.

00:32:02 --> 00:32:08

If you give everybody an appointment, you're gonna be forced to break some of these appointments. You're going to be lying. Right?

00:32:09 --> 00:32:14

And when you hear someone say I'm Sol sol, sol, sol, sol, sol, sol. Sorry, no, you're not.

00:32:15 --> 00:32:18

Right. Give me 100 bucks. I'll forgive you. Hey.

00:32:19 --> 00:32:28

All right. Intense apologies. Right. This is a bit of exaggeration. And exaggeration is a departure from truth. And that is what a lie is.

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


00:32:34 --> 00:33:07

fetches an appointment and something in our life causes us to see that appointment as unimportant. That's, that's the bottom line. If you're missing pleasure, time in and time out, then something is causing you to not see it as important. Maybe it was your parents. Okay, let him sleep. He has examined the morning, right? Oh, no, no, no, he's still young. He's gonna be getting up an hour. Right? That's called misplaced compassion, compassion in the wrong right sphere. That's not compassion, you're destroying them. You're making it harder for them later to pray.

00:33:08 --> 00:33:24

Just like the issue of she's too young for a job. No, no a child. It's easy for them to do these things early. And they love to do it early. Later on, they're gonna turn a switch and flip the HL it's very difficult for them very difficult. So one of the reasons could be parents.

00:33:25 --> 00:33:30

One of the reasons could be a weakness of Eman, right? Hypocrisy has climbed into the heart.

00:33:32 --> 00:33:39

Or it could be a whole bunch of other factors. So let's talk about the opposite very quickly. So it can be done in 12 minutes. What are some factors that can help us wake up?

00:33:44 --> 00:34:21

First of all, you need to empty that heart of yours right from the toxins or get the diseases out. As the Hadith says there's a morsel of flesh in your body. If it sound the rest of your body sound me actions will be sound, that's the heart. So with this tilbyr purchase goes to sleep upon tilbyr asked Allah to forgive him for the sins that he piled on that day, they're going to wake him down when he wants to put his head to sleep. And also hydrate that heart of yours and your heart has dried up hydrate with some victory with Quran with the remembrance of Allah do you know of the beautiful advices I heard one of the scholars say this, and they were using this about camel lane.

00:34:21 --> 00:34:30

And if it works for them, it'll definitely work for veggies. He said out of the eat the best ways to ease for yourself waking up to pray

00:34:31 --> 00:34:34

is to pray to our cause before you sleep.

00:34:37 --> 00:34:39

Right. Why?

00:34:40 --> 00:34:59

Because one will lead leads to the next. So the ways to get up for prayer is to pray before you lay down pray to rocks and ask Allah Allah helped me get past this obstacle. Oh Allah don't allow me to die. Well, negligent offenses, right? Oh, no. You know, don't let this be too difficult, you know of a crime to get over

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

Okay, that's the first thing the second thing is to refresh your memory regarding the I ads and the ahaadeeth concerning fetch grab variable solid in open the chapters on hardsoft are the chapters on solid read the IRS about this these are not this is not something you know that you read once in your life and that's it without caffeine I think of money and reminder when there's benefit. You could have heard a hadith already you haven't heard it for three, four years and you refresh your memory oh man, alright, then it has a force inside of you it grows.

00:35:33 --> 00:35:53

So when Allah Subhana Allah says Allah Quran officially in the class, he can have a shooter. Right. The recitation that happens at Fed is witnessed witnessed by the angels via Hadith mentioned when you hear that the Hadith about the man that slept through the prayers and how he's punished in his grave, right, or the Hadith about shaitan time three knocks on your head when you go to sleep.

00:35:54 --> 00:35:55

And when you get up.

00:35:57 --> 00:36:35

Remember, a loved one not isn't done, and then you make will do the second one isn't done, then you get up and break. The third eye is under in your fresh, right and energetic for the rest of your day around greeting them before you sleep helps. It helps you because you know when you wake up for finches. And you get up and you just like five more minutes. And you go back to sleep and he was hedging, right? Of course, that hadith reminds you that it's shaytaan because think about think of how drunk you are when you say that drunk would sleep. You couldn't get up after you woke up and you're saying five more minutes. You think you're gonna wake up when you're five minutes deeper into

00:36:35 --> 00:36:50

sleep now? You're delusional right? The hadith reads 100 Wait that's a true contrast on so I think and then two more things and I'm done I'll be I'll be awake let me just make Hulu force myself into the bathroom but also water right on my body and just pray these two records the Sooners

00:36:51 --> 00:36:54

refreshing your memory with the * helps a great deal

00:36:56 --> 00:37:05

so Gabriela input on your nightstand joining these mailing lists or a Facebook page or whatever it is to get these reminders in your emails or in your in your message boxes

00:37:14 --> 00:37:15

you know the

00:37:20 --> 00:37:30

the hadith of Bilal, I believe it's like the Prophet SAW Selim did everything in his power to prefetch. And he missed such Salalah on iOS.

00:37:31 --> 00:37:32

Right? You guys know,

00:37:33 --> 00:37:35

they were coming back from the bedroom. I believe it was flavor.

00:37:38 --> 00:38:17

And they traveled throughout the night. And then they had to stop. They just couldn't go any more before the break of dawn by a few hours. So they set the money up for Elena Salah Turner who's going to safeguard our prayer for us. They were concerned about this, right? And so below the law and said I'll do it. And so he says I faced these, everyone wants sleep I face these so I can see the sun right here. This is a light of the sun that comes out. And I prayed with ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala destined for me to pray or pray to whatever Allah gave me the ability to pray. And then I faced the ease and I leaned on my animal meaning he remained standing look how hard he tried. He kept

00:38:17 --> 00:38:18


00:38:19 --> 00:38:44

A agents what is head I mean animal from the intensity of his fatigue, he fell asleep and he says nothing woke me but the heat of mice the sun on my face. The sun came up and it is gone. And the Prophet SAW Selim said what happened what Tokyo villa, he says the same thing that happened to you or messenger of Allah for Allah audios Allah. Allah Amma in Neville lays as we know, is a phrase.

00:38:47 --> 00:38:48

He said, Indeed,

00:38:50 --> 00:39:07

there is no negligence in sleep. Meaning if you did everything in your power, and you truly couldn't wake up, right, then that's fine. But you need to make sure you're exerting your effort. You're setting the alarm, you're reading a reminder you're sleeping on, try all you can. The third thing quickly,

00:39:08 --> 00:39:10

is praying in the same message regularly.

00:39:12 --> 00:39:45

Magellan is gonna jump with him on what he says. If a Muslim does not get anything of benefit out of his Muslim brother, except that he is embarrassed to commit the sin in front of him. That will be enough, right? Until your level is at that your degrees that your email is at that degree or level where you're ashamed of Allah at least get a helper to be ashamed. Right? You're Muslim brothers. When you pray the same message regularly they know when you're missing. And if they're good brother, they'll check up on you to you they may you miss a day or two in a row. They'll check up on you. Well, that helps a great deal.

00:39:46 --> 00:39:53

You know, one of our local Masjid in Brooklyn. It was messy to my house. When I miss ventured in the masjid.

00:39:55 --> 00:40:00

The next day I walked to the masjid like this because I know I

00:40:00 --> 00:40:13

I'm embarrassed of the old guy who doesn't get the message and the guy who never misses an opportunity tells me her were yesterday's leave behind you know? So this helps a great deal too we can get ourselves out of that critical point.

00:40:15 --> 00:40:18

That's number three bring the same message regularly. Number four

00:40:21 --> 00:40:22

is being stingy with your time

00:40:26 --> 00:40:46

give him a shot of your MO Allah he says manifest that work RTL Vegeta also fairly lie through color. He says when when someone misses the two Hakkasan fishes, let him curse the the people that are nuisances that are burdensome. You know the person that the guests that comes he doesn't know what to leave that guy.

00:40:49 --> 00:40:54

Listen, Islam teaches us to be good to our guests. We do that to please Allah.

00:40:55 --> 00:41:31

But even if your guests are going to think you're disrespectful, that's fine. If the only other option is to just respect Allah subhanaw taala right to this please Allah azza wa jal, and you don't have to be disrespectful, they may see it as awkward but after a while, they'll realize you're serious. Tell them listen, I really would love to sit with you. And I would love for you to stay there's an empty couch right here. There's a bed, please on your lap now because you're imagining saying this saw so I want to say this to a Muslim right to the out of your mind. So that is there. Finally, by the way is anybody here from Sudan? Sudan is like sleeping in their house like drinking

00:41:31 --> 00:41:42

tea. Like when you visit somebody's house. You have to stay like for a week. That's hospitality. They don't even have couches. You come in lay down. Let's talk I want to lay down first and we talk

00:41:43 --> 00:42:19

right? I love listening to this all the Muslims everywhere. Anyhow, tell him listen, I'm gonna miss fetch. I'm not like you forgiving me. I'm not able to get up after four hours of sleep right? You know the sooner is to not speak after Isha unless you're going to benefit someone or benefit from someone. Right? Sometimes you need to relieve your wife, the poor lady was home all the time and give her a few moments. If you're the type of person that only comes home after a show. Right? You have that's a benefit she needs she's gonna collapse if she doesn't get it.

00:42:20 --> 00:42:25

So you have to resist your own collapse so that you can keep her from collapsing. She's watching your kids.

00:42:26 --> 00:43:03

So the Sunnah is to not speak after Isha whether in the masjid lingering around and turn on Jazeera Listen, unless you're going to benefit someone or benefit from someone. There is no speaking after Isha. And even if you're going to benefit someone, or even if you're going to benefit from someone at the cost of veggies, or listing as benefiting someone at the cost of storage, I'm sorry, right? Somebody only stay up all night watching slanted lectures right on YouTube, and they miss out on veggie. There's no such thing as benefit in a lecture, if it's gonna cost you 20 That's a trick of Chinese playing on you.

00:43:04 --> 00:43:06

That's number four, being stingy with your time.

00:43:07 --> 00:43:11

Number five, oh man, I went over give me four minutes I'll be done.

00:43:14 --> 00:43:21

Number five is the etiquettes of sleeping. Right sleeping early being a man will do as you could see sleeping on your right side all of that.

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

Number six.

00:43:26 --> 00:43:40

Try to apply this hadith because this hadith was a reason for many people to be consistent with Frank fish. And that's the Hadith the balance of the loads eyeliners edited video we've covered it before but I mentioned it now again for the benefit.

00:43:41 --> 00:43:45

What the Prophet SAW Selim says Whoever prays for Allah

00:43:46 --> 00:44:08

40 days in Gemma and congregation catching the first SEC Viera, Allah who will write for him to guarantees a guarantee from the fire and guaranteed on hypocrisy. Let's say you can't do all five prayers, try to apply this hadith. You know, they say if you do if you perform a practice for 30 days, it becomes a habit it becomes easy, right?

00:44:09 --> 00:44:48

So this hadith pushes you to 40 days try to perform veggies, you know, when you don't have a way to measure yourself, it's hard to stay encouraged to say okay, almost, I'm getting there. When you give yourself that target you will see it will come easier through that. It will you will get up without an alarm without depending on anybody without o'clock in sha Allah is just try it. Give yourself a 40 day, you know, Bootcamp on sort of Veg, I'm going to sleep early. I'm gonna get up professional. No visitations, I'm sorry. This is emergency circumstances right. seventh and last is reading how dedicated the seller for the early Muslims were to their sorta

00:44:50 --> 00:45:00

one of them at nine years old. He said I didn't pray a photo obligatory prayer alone except twice. It says and it says if I didn't pray them and some

00:45:00 --> 00:45:31

Someone else said he did not miss a congregational prayer for 40 years acceptable except once when his mother died and he was busy with preparing her funeral. And everyone around him Allah says for 40 years serene Musa was not seen except between his house and the masjid doesn't mean he was unemployed or you know, he was someone that would just take the lesson and we'll explain the context at a later time. And what Chiara mo Allah He said, so they might have been Mahalia Amish lived for nearly 70 years without missing the first step could be

00:45:32 --> 00:45:40

and among the self, it was customary to extend condolences right there for three days if somebody missed the first secretary.

00:45:42 --> 00:46:20

And for seven days if the person misses the prayer and Gemma you go to that people may Allah you know, keep you patient. May Allah you know, reward you for your masiva and you know, it's alright it happens to the best of us and they go give them condolences, like somebody in his family died, had some fire him over. He says, The tragedy in someone's religion is greater than the tragedy and somebody's duty in his worldly affairs. And yet when my daughter died, more than 10,000 extended their condolences to me, whereas when I missed the congregational prayer, nobody gave me their condolences, meaning people have been twisted. They don't know what a tragedy is anymore

00:46:28 --> 00:46:40

there's a slightly long story here, you guys are tired. I'm not gonna continue because the three minutes unless everybody says I can continue to continue. That's not everybody and everybody's hands up if you want me to continue.

00:46:42 --> 00:46:44

Very quickly. There's a story

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

of LSCC Malik on the hola Juan when he was assaulted ventures.

00:46:52 --> 00:46:54

That Eric consensus shoe store

00:46:55 --> 00:47:17

was a formidable Persian city that the Muslims besieged for an entire year and a half with flip before it fell into the hands of the Muslims, making it a historic event, and one of the most difficult campaigns ever experienced by the Muslims. What if the event was this marvelous? Then why would they listen to the Malika Lavon cry whenever remembering the battle system.

00:47:19 --> 00:47:58

The gates of Shuster felt shortly before the break of dawn, the Muslim armies poured into the fortress where an epic confrontation took place between 30,000 Muslims and 150,000 Persians, the fierceness of the battle was to the brink, and every moment of this battlement possible that and carried extreme danger for the Muslim army. It was an utterly difficult moment and extremely risky dilemma, but in the end, why Allah's grace, Allah had written victory for the believers. It was it was a spectacular triumph over their enemies. But this victory took place moments after sunrise, they missed touch.

00:47:59 --> 00:48:36

And the Muslims realize that fajr prayer had been lost amidst the intensity of this day. The Muslims are unable in the middle of the brutal predicament and the swords of over there next to prefetch. And it's time and yet innocently Malik cries for losing the federal prayer one time in his life. He cries even though he's excused, and though the Muslim armies excused, and though the Muslim armies visited with the most difficult acts in Islam fighting in the way of Allah, but what was lost was indeed a great thing. And it says, What is your story? Like, what's the worth of your stuff? I lost ventures that day. I wouldn't wish to have this entire world in exchange for fetching

00:48:37 --> 00:48:42

for that prayer. And subhanAllah the comment is how I Ali's

00:48:44 --> 00:48:50

look at his excuse for the needs of a soprano that right and compare that with the excuse of anybody else.

00:48:52 --> 00:49:00

And the point is that the believer is moved by his email. We know for a fact that if there was $1,000 waiting for us in salted veggie,

00:49:01 --> 00:49:03

we'd be the guy opening the message calling.

00:49:04 --> 00:49:07

Right we'll be praying to Him lady or university before that time, right.

00:49:09 --> 00:49:27

And we'll have some food and fast that they bought, right for $1,000 for slotland vision. The believer is moved by more than that he's moved by his image and the Prophet saw signs in the two archives of sunnah before Vegeta Ayesha is worth more than $1,000 worth more than the whole world. He said everything is

00:49:28 --> 00:49:31

and so if a person can get their Eman

00:49:33 --> 00:49:43

out of you know these lowly ranks and up, he'll find the way to prefetch your comment screen you mentioned side so many stories of people that have come to him or otherwise is I was told about a brother

00:49:45 --> 00:49:51

that says I could never prefetch until I figured out what I'm going to do. I used to drink a lot of water before he went to sleep.

00:49:53 --> 00:49:57

You know why right? Before you have to get up now you might use the bathroom.

00:49:58 --> 00:50:00

So you get some Adventure Time to go back to sleep.

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


00:50:01 --> 00:50:22

if there's a will there's a way by Allah's permission, he mentioned another brother, he says he used to tie a string from his toe and put it outside his window when he sleeps, and he will tell his brother on the way to the message, hold the string, keep tugging. And don't stop until I come to the window me make sure I get out of the bed.

00:50:23 --> 00:50:50

I need to think of 1000 ways to do it. But there has to be the one inside of here we have to realize the importance of this we're not talking about some additional you know, virtues act. We're talking about the pillars of Islam dies, how did the OMA get to the point where it can neglect this? You mentioned one brother that are closer to Allah azza wa jal in London I believe he used to come you can do this yeah, I'm sorry. But he used to come to the masjid with a sleeping bag for a Shabbat

00:50:52 --> 00:51:02

why is because there's no way I'm gonna go home and come back for venture even get up revision. So let me get into the habit here right the guy comes in that guy kicks me in the ribs are we up

00:51:03 --> 00:51:26

if there's a will while muster mission there's a lady on muscle panel got to make this series of benefits or overheard it and for over spoken about Greta sincerity and speeches and actions. And teachers always that which was better for us and enable us to use that to safely journey towards him and properly stand in front of him. And forever be in His pleasure with him.
