to learn how to love so I'm so sorry that one early to Sofia level about should I let you know
why why do you
have to do who whenever you are sort of we begin the name of Allah or praise and glory belongs so Allah mais finest peace and blessings be upon Muhammad the Messenger of Allah and his family and his companions and all those loyal to him. And we testify that none is worthy of worship of Allah subhanaw taala that glorified exalted alone without any partners.
At the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was indeed his prophet and a servant that is messenger. So welcome all the beautiful faces back and we apologize for the extended delay.
And we return to our discussion on Salah revisited the many reasons for us to pray. And the many reasons we learned so we can convince others to pray, and the many reasons why we should be working hard to enhance the way we pray and benefit more from our prayers, and realize the full potential of this prayer and then chase after it, the child was so much.
Following up on the last class, we're up to the 26th virtue or unique characteristic of Salah. And that is that salah is a cause for your risk, your provisions, your sustenance to be increased.
It was already from the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he likes him, the Lord of Salah from 50 to five, right? Just imagine what it would have been like it was really 50 solid, it stayed like that. That would mean let's say just for simplicity today is 25 hours instead of 24. Every half hour, you'd be making solid. So when would you work? And when would you sleep?
And when would you enjoy any segment of your life
that it takes longer than a half hour to perform? Right?
So from the Mercy of Allah that He reduced it from 50 to five, while keeping the reward, it's 50. But there's a condition
that it's five but these five have to be established correctly, have to be established and protected and given on time right offered on time.
But it's from the Mercy of Allah that He made them five so that you can fulfill your other obligations as well
is that he says Allah Allah, he was setting up
ineligibility car like a half hour earlier on the car like half hour in the life we got like a half.
We nearly actually gallon Hapa soon after also live at work particularly we're articulately How could happen. He said, Indeed, you're right. Your body has a right to party, you need to sleep, to rest, to be nourished. And your Lord has a right upon you. That's an obligation, the greatest of them of course, and your guest has arrived upon you to host them properly. And with excellence and your family, your wife, your husband has a right upon you
so fast and break your fast depending on the circumstances and pray meaning at night and have relations with your wives as well as different with your spouse as well. That's an obligation Alright, that has to be delivered as well. And give each it's due right. So those are all obligations that you need to fulfill as well.
And since they were obligations, just so no one thinks that they can offer one obligation instead of in place of the other. Allah azza wa jal clarified to us and because a loved one that leaving your other obligations
when it's time for the greatest obligation, Salah is an obligation, right? It becomes mandatory on you to leave what's mandatory
when the number one priority comes and that's solid to clarify that so Surah for sure. The hadith shows us the balance of Islam moderation on matters everything has a right definitely. But the greatest right is the right of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that Salah and so he clarified to us that it becomes the most on you
to abandon the other obligations when it's time for the obligatory salah. And he said surprising without an evidence for that.
Yeah, you will Alina either knew the slides in Yama Giamatti for sound that the killer was our own beer. Or believers when it's time for the Friday prayer when you hear the call
Don't rush to the remembrance of Allah rush notice the wording rush right and leave off your earnings that's an obligation to go make a living leave it off now
and notice the word rush versus the command is also a command to go get dressed to go earn provisions to go make an income he said soprano Darla bola de jalla coolala The new law firm shoe fee monarchy we have a coulomb interesting. He is the one that made the earth for you traversable you can walk around on it he made it manageable flats off capable to travel on it. So walk not rush walk in its expanse and seek out the risk. So it comes to seeking out the livelihood it's walk when it comes to the Command of Allah Salah rush and leave off everything else.
And then he says the parent who wants
to reassure you
will either route the gelatin Avila and frog to La house or a cougar called Mr. Poole Merica modifier on the left loominatee Jarrah,
was the lead. So these people they get up and they leave the prayer to go chase after their business or their trade, tell them that in which is with Allah is better
than the trade and the business and Allah is the best of providers. You know why the eye ends like that, to reassure you that you leaving off what you love to do, and what you're obligated to do to make a living is not going to take away from your life, we want to ward off that whisper. As he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, mantero cache and Nila I want a hula will fail on me. Whoever gives up a thing for Allah, Allah will compensate him I'll make it up for him with that, which is better than it.
So to give it up, because it's time for a solid, in a solid I can retire Lumia guitar but no good and a solid Salah has been prescribed written against a volume and a burden an obligation at a specific time to delay it beyond that time you haven't fulfilled the obligation is not accepted before it's time or after it's time has to be within his time. But if you do that, and you give up things to make sure it's in its time, Allah will bless that time for you.
And look, there's something that you can try with yourself.
A person that gives up making solid to get something done, he will come away with that moment number one with the destructive act of leaving salah. And then he won't get done with whatever he left Salah to get done.
You know why? Because Allah has stripped that moment that hour that day of its blessings.
We have to stop calculating things only on the physical on the tangible material level. And likewise, when a person gives up something, whether it's his work, whether it's his studies, when it's time for Salah, Allah will bless his time for him, he'll compensate him with that, which is better. So he on the clock, if you have a timer, he would have studied less. But he would have made more out of that time.
Money or studies or otherwise, isn't it true? Sometimes you sit there all day in business and you don't make a penny, right. And then sometimes in one hour, you make more than you made your entire that sometimes a person that can sit there on a page for 20 minutes, he can't figure this subject out. And sometimes he flips to the next piece of cake and he flips over to the third. This is a reality that you will risk in your mind your abilities and your capacity are in the hands of Allah to bless them or strip them of their blessings. This suddenly you can witness about yourself. And so Allah warded off that whispered that I'm going to provide for you just worry about the Salah. And he
said to the prophets of Allah who Allah He was telling them what like ever Salah to stop that Alia learners Hello Paris National Novel Zopo well activated charcoal and command your family to enjoy the prayer and be persevere and endure it upon that we are not asking you for your risk. We're not going to cost you any money. Don't worry, it's not gonna cost you anything to do this. We are the ones that provide for you. Don't forget that what our favor to the temple and the end destination is for the people of piety.
Otherwise, you want to visit yourself with your own risk Fine, go fishing with yourself for yourself without help from Allah subhanho wa Taala and you could make more money once again in the physical sense, because you pay more hours and you are able to transact more deals. When you can spend that money on yourself in a hospital. It could be
It's stolen from you, you can pay it in parking tickets, it will not be blessing
with the person that is insistent with the solid needs to know that being constantly or solid will actually increase your risk. So stop worrying about that and that's why so many if you're hearing them now revolve around that subject worshiping Allah correctly and there is will be there the reminder is always there so you can relax Allah Subhana Allah says in a third area one might have to Jin now in Ceylon yeah we are only creating a worship that's why you're here that's your number one rule purpose in life the eye right after it says what memory domain whom interest Why don't we need to remove worshipping these not for me, I don't need from them any provisions once again. I don't
need for them to feed me. The next is as in Allah whoever was up Allah is the provider is the one that says that is to begin with.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said Salah Sachin Kulu bomb you know Allah in Angelucci Paulo, goofy or in mattered Allah, Allah, Allah and Jana, the three people that are having guarantee from Allah that if they live they will be provided for and they will be suffice, they'll be taken care of, they'll have enough.
And if they die, they'll be admitted into paradise. That's the guarantee. One of them he says of above all he was in love Omaha Raja it administrativo long and Allah, whoever sets out he just starts on his route to the masjid. He's guaranteed by Allah Subhana Allah that guarantee.
And that's what a law is does it also said in Zen Mela, the salah will Eater is occurred, we sent money down to begin with, so that Salah will be upheld, established and zakat would be paid, meaning wealth came down for you, so that you can continue living your life, earn your livelihood so that you can fulfill your purpose of worshipping Allah and inviting others to worship Allah, that's what it was sent down for you. It was created for you, you were not created for it. So instead of using that risk as a means you make it your number one priority. This is the most nonsensical of personalities. One of the really most of is something very beautiful. He said the example of the
person that lives for his it is his number one concern is number one priority. All his efforts are there is like the example of someone that cleans the bottom of his shoe with his cheek.
You get it
sounds mostly funny. And was he supposed to get it at least? Does it make sense? Or should I explain it?
The bottom of your shoe was made for you to protect you from getting glass or nails or otherwise in your foot. Right? You're not supposed to be living in the surface of the bottom of your shoe were used the most important part of you your face to clean the bottom of your shoe. Right? Thus is the person who lives for his money.
Is money supposed to be servicing him? He's not supposed to be servicing it. And you are risk Allah Subhana Allah told us early it's guaranteed what may have been dead but in fact all the law what it is, and there is no beasts that walks the earth no living creature except that it's upon Allah to duty upon Allah to provide for it.
And slay Gemma
Gemma Rania Mohan narrates the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,
problem and risky Can I melt? Lead Raka? Who risk who can you recall moments? If the son of Adam was trying to run away from his risk is provisions the way he tries to run away from that go turn around from that right? His risk will catch him the same way that will get you
that's one of the selfies. It took this hadith and he said, so if the son of Adam
was trying to get on a boat to flee from his risk, and this, by the way, is not just money, right? It's just the easiest example. It's anything I love provides you with right money or reputation, family, health, whatever.
If the son of Adam were to get on a boat turn away from his risk, Allah Who sent his risk on lightning to catch up with him. There's no escaping right? The fight is going to come you're not going to be shortchanged. Depending on an inhalation or otherwise there's a limit and a written amount and a share. No one can take even one of the ayat Allah Azza says
Officina in spoken one or two
and in the heavens is your risk
and all that you've been promised, it's this in the showers down upon you. Some said Allah relieved the people's worries by informing them in this ayah that your risk is in the end
offense, because if it were under the ground on the earth, people would kill you looking for it. Within the avenue is not attainable. Me no matter where they look, they're not gonna find that in the right place. It will somehow just drop onto you, it will reach you.
And another beautiful holiday that will remember the Mahan also and so I heard German
their authors generics webinar right here. He said some Allahu alayhi wa sallam in a row hell, kudos. Nephi roaring, indeed the Holy Spirit who is the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Holy Spirit.
We do we do. What not there is a third counterpart to the gods very important difference, right? That was the mix of it they had and we Allah for not being a Fulani, those that are lost those that put things in other than their place, right.
In order to help produce the Holy Spirit never that theory blew into me meaning he inspired me a form of revelation and enough semblance and muda had to stack me that agenda what Estelle river is that no so we'll die until it lives its lifespan to the fullest. To the very last breath very last second, what Estelle wherever is ah and it collects into this is provisions in full.
He some Allah has been comments now on this revelation that he told us he says for temple Allah, which Middlefield polyp So fear Allah and beautify your requests, meaning go out and seek that risk. And now that provisions in the beautiful Helen manner, while I mean an STIPA, or risk, any of Luba who be haram for Intermarine de la ingela, united in love and loyalty, and do not be driven by your fear for your risk to go pursue it through the forbidden means.
For indeed that which is with Allah, and evidence, that which is with Allah can only be attained through obeying him. Otherwise you get it but it's stripped of blessings once again, that which is with Allah only be attained through obey Him.
And finally the hate of Edison, it's really the province of Allah, Allah He told us
my candidate hello to him.
Whoever is concerned is the hereafter.
General level he knows. Gemma Allahu alayhi shalom, Allah will consolidate for him his words, right they'll simplify his life for him.
Well, Geralyn Penang feel calm and he will place his riches in his heart. No matter what his risk was, he'll still feel rich.
Whatever to Dunia were here of human and a share of this world will will come to him whether it likes her or not me no way around, it's gonna come. Well, my candidacy duniya him. Whoever's concern is this world. That's the number one priority.
Shed that Allahu Allah He Shambhala Allah, the scattered, disperses his worries, torn between so many different directions. What Giada Hubei 99 And he places his poverty between his eyes, he all he can see is that he's poor, you can be the richest man on earth, you'll still feel his poor.
While I'm here at him in a dunya in lemma, coochie, Bella, and it will not come to Him of this world, except what was written for him.
So the pens have been lifted, and the pages have dried. So prioritize your concerns, right? That's how we have to be. You know, some people, they don't pray because of work.
And they say and we tell them but
this is guaranteed for your wrist either way. So don't worry about telling your boss you to pray tomorrow. Don't worry about someone seeing in your lunch break, praying in the staircase, just pray and just have Allah's mercy that those five means that there's bigger spends between the prayers as well. Right there's a bigger window to make that you can find some time if there's a will there's a way by Allah's permission. Allah will not see you striving to please Him put an obstacle in front of you.
But they say but I have to earn a living I'm gonna lose my job first of all, not to lose your job. And if you lose your job, there's no getting the job right at the privacy from solid. And if you leave it for Allah, you quit before they fire you a level to replace you with something better. I'm not saying quit make them fires and get unemployment.
But the point is, if need be, right, leave it for Allah subhanho wa taala. But they say but I have to seek a living this is the doubt the argument that shaitan has caused to situate in front of them.
They say I know it's guaranteed, but I have to seek the means right?
this is true. This is true. Absolutely. And whoever thinks relying upon Allah means not trying the rug right? You have to go out to Allah Allah is not gonna he could create the feeling of full stomach without you eating he could and he could you know
Put a child in your in your wife's building without you coming near her. You could say I don't want it. But he chose not to do that. He chose for that to be a miracle for Maria, Malia cillum. He chose for that to be the exception of the rule that we're not allowed to live our lives according to right. He chose for that to be a miracle, meaning something that's well attainable, even though he had the power to do it, he chose otherwise. So you do have to seek the means I agree. But you only have to seek the means for your risk. What about seeing the means for laughter gender doesn't you have to seek the means for that? is in that emerge advice as well? The prophets of Allah Allah
hey, help me demon father, evidential and legible Bella almonds. Indeed, Whoever fears his priorities are right, whoever becomes afraid will will leave by night. No leave by night means when you travel, you travel in the morning. But when you're extra worried, you reach extra limit or you try your very best to take your precautions. So he's saying Whoever is truly afraid will do everything in his power. He will try he will seek the means above and beyond Whoever fears will travel by night. Do extra right. And whoever travels by night mean doesn't even wait for the morning to start his travels. He will definitely reach his destination. And then he explained what he was
talking about some Allahu Allahu Selim and he said Allah in a Siddhartha Hilaria Allah in a Siddhartha Jana? Indeed the merchandise as my points of Allah is expensive, indeed, the merchandise of Allah is paradise. So the one that says I have to seek the means to say we agree, but don't you have to seek the means for gender as well? Absolutely. Allah made the dunya and we after all, based upon the means, right? You have to seek them both. Even though he destined ultimately what will happen in each
another argument that's used, that the sheer habit of our calls our attention to, he says, and some people when they're told, why don't you pray, they'll say it's alright. Allah knows and Allah is Most Merciful. Right? Love of God, right? Yes, Allah is Most Merciful. And they're right. It's true. Allah is the Most Merciful. No one is more merciful than Allah.
But is Allah only merciful in the hereafter?
When people are standing on top of Delphi?
Or isn't he also the Most Merciful in this dunya? Do you think that he provided for you when you are away from him when you are a runaway Rebel, and the day you want to come close to him is going to destroy you?
He's not merciful and dunya is only merciful until after he's not without mercy on you when you try to come nearer to him and please him.
You if not but you know what he said
about these types of
false arguments, these excuses that we put in our heads. He says, in nature he had like a female dominated what x zero can
female bully blaming
the LI Lunarlon three mass evil co rhotic
you working so hard for something already guaranteed for you. And you slacking so much and what was demanded of you is of the signs that your insight has been
buried. And thus these arguments come out, right, you can't see straight anymore. He throws anything in front of himself to not feel the guilty can't do that. Keep it moving.
number one, to keep in mind that ALLAH SubhanA holds out and when you rush back to him, he will rush back to you even faster. And a lot of articles dilated said, Well, Anna Anna pura man who was attacked naturally him baraka to Minister Manuel. And if the people of the town had believed and feared Allah, He would have opened up notice the word again the blessings the baraka from the heavens and the earth.
You know, the other student says what feminists too much to cure will be generally whatever police's when they forgot, they kept being reminded about Eman about Islam, about salah when they kept being reminded, and they kept forgetting the reminder over and over again. We also opened up for them the doors of everything. But there's a difference in this eye and that eye. This eye has we punted meaning we punish them by distracting them with everything. Sometimes you risk is your destruction.
The first ISS when they believe we open up for them the blessings of everything, you get the highest and only the beneficial right of this dunya otherwise you can get great amounts of this world and that would
be a distraction for you to use up what is remaining of your time. So your life here expired Have you ever find in the path again Wrath of Allah
so it's odd that someone sees it fits, that they live on the earth of Allah subhanho wa Taala taking already from the risk of Allah azza wa jal benefiting from it and then not upholding the most basic right of Allah and that Salah five times a day on time correctly,
it cannot be imagined Sharia law says that a person be a Muslim,
that is not menstruating and not postpartum, right, Nova, Nova, the woman that just had babies, and it cannot be Imagine that you are a Muslim.
And you don't make Salah unless you're either on menses or on postpartum because if anyone would have been excuse to not make Salah it would have been the sick person or it would have been the combatant in the battlefield. But even those who have to make salah I don't think
the sick person free standing if you can't and sitting he says a lot. If you can't then link even he has to break, you think you don't have to break
the one in the battle who lives on the line a lot of His mercy He modified the salah even further for him, but he still has to make it.
So what's left
and be reassured that this is an increase for your risk and your risk will the bless it once you perform that Salah on time correctly. Number 27 And perhaps I'll make that
summary page on finishing shot.
Number 27 Is that salah of the uniqueness of Salah is that salah is the start and end of Islam.
What does that mean?
It's the start of Islam first of all, because when a person becomes Muslim, his very first obligation is swollen.
So a person enters the masjid right now and takes his shahada, it automatically becomes an obligation on him to pray Russia for a short time is over. But he can't find a loved one obligated beyond his ability to stand next to us and imitate. I don't know what you're saying it's fine, say subhanallah. Just stand there right now you can live long enough to close. But it's an obligation on him from the moment of Islam. We started with Salah without getting into the filth of it right?
the start of Islam in the sense that the Muslim on the Day of Judgment, who will be judged?
The first thing is going to be asked about is what is solid. And if that goes well the processor loves it and everything else goes well.
And if that is not good, I told you everything else might be good. The other narration says.
And if any of these obligatory prayers are deficient, Allah azza wa jal will tell the angels to ask if he has had enough and extra prayers with enough of the recommended prayers, so that he can complete his follow up. And if they do, we'll hamdulillah and if they're not,
he's in deep trouble.
So that's the start of Islam in that sense, and it is the end of Islam, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that it will be the last thing lost in the deen
and so I can generally say to my family they want to Thailand reports the prophets of Allah alayhi wa sallam said, and these are real life prophecies that we saw unraveling before our eyes of the proofs of His Prophet when some Allah Allah Himself, He said a word on my own farm in Nasik, Amana
well after Maya common Dini Masala or Rupa mousseline laugh Allah Allahu Allah hits on the very first thing to be removed. To be uplifted from this Dean is LMR true trustworthiness.
Someone that holds true to his deal with a wiser origin and his trust with the people and the very last thing to remain from their knee and he said is solid.
He said, Well rock solid, love Allah, Allah holding the water heater Island and perhaps a person would even be making Salah and have no share of that Salah in the sight of Allah azza wa jal.
Why wouldn't you have any share of Asana? And so it's a question
why would they have any share of the Salah?
Why would we benefit from the solar?
Number one is that performing it correctly, not on time not upholding its conditions or its pillars, right the fastener coming to a standstill in this position. That's one way distracted by other matters of the dunya.
During the follow up, he's busy in his mind. So his Salah is deficient one way or another in how he's performing it right
or number two is solid wood absolutely perfect. Right when he's not fraying except for the people to see. Right, and I'll try typically, and at the end of time, it's all the Salalah volumes that the tribulations will pour upon this month. So the
leaves into two groups, one group of 30 Man, no hypocrisy in it. And one group of pure hypocrisy. No me man, it
was totally manual. And if we if we start with the first in line Manaphy and the pure hypocrites the one that never makes Salah unless people are watching, it's of the ways.
What's another way you can pray not have any shear if you're brave.
Right, that's part of number one. There's one more important way.
We mentioned part of it in the football today
was not the subject of
the actual cyber.
He is a person that prayed but lost out on the reward of his prayers because of other things used to write sins in private, consuming the rights of others violating others. You know, the Hadith that says Don't you know who the bankrupt person is bankruptcy doesn't have anyone and this is saying a person is meeting Allah with salah, but he has no share of that Salafis the hate of the bankrupt person don't move please don't you know what the bankrupt person is? Is it Mala?
Mala Mala who was
the person that has no wealth or any property.
He said the bankrupt person from my home on the religious level is a person that comes on the Day of Judgment with Salah and sleep, and Zakhar a prayer and fasting and charity from the likes and he cursed this person and he violated the honor of this person and he struck this person is spilled the blood of that person. So each of them takes from his deeds.
And if his deeds finish, he sets up a bar or insulin before he pays off what he owes. He started seeking from their evil deeds until he has thrown his face in the fire out the window. If not the alright mama has about this hadith is this hadith means that this person did a valid Salah because the Salah is valid currency to pay off with if it wasn't if the Salah was deficient, it was invalid would not be worth anything.
But he has no share of it in front of Allah because he had debts he had to pay with it. A person will show up at the end of time pay off his debts with his good deeds rather, Willa.
And is this what we see all around us? Sometimes a person all you can recognize is Islam that makes salah but the violations in his life are countless.
The May Allah doesn't make us any of those that truly submit to him a lot of money.
And the last thing I need to have mentioned for closing about solid being the last thing last thing I need is I hate that woman out there volatile and we're in the prophets of Allah are they even system said, that's all for the rural Islam in Rotorua. The Kalam and to me that winds up a little lower the ship within us we let Italia Wahoo Laguna put on hook well as a witness
that the knots of Islamia things that have been fascinated have been set by the Prophet SAW Selim right have been set about Islam will be undone. One by one one after another. Every time one of them is undone the people hold on to the next one. This is Islam right? Oh, this is Islam. When you compartmentalize your Islam Islam is just about having a good dark or Islam is just about salah or Islam. So long as you know you speak the truth and you're you know you will have good manners, right?
Every time we throw one out and see but this is what's important, isn't exactly what happened to the human.
He said Don't call the roll Islam room with an old one. The knots of Islam the strongholds of Islam will be undone one after another. Every time one is loosened. people cling on to the next one.
Very first of them to be undone will be rulership, ruling by the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the very last of them to be undone is what Salah and hate Islam says lead to Canosa Hatzalah you call off without the Allah Allah, the Day of Judgment will not start until there it is no longer set in the earth. Allah Allah Allah as I mentioned the earth anymore.
And of course salah is the ultimate mention of Allah subhanho wa Taala right that's the most obvious fact of Islam reality of Islam and Mohamed Salah came with most recognizable once that's gone that means nothing is left from prophethood which means there is no good left in this world. So Allah will destroy this universe of bring about the hereafter.
So Salah is the first
Send the last
of Islam and of this oma in reality well then their job was so that'll open the Florida awesome hands went up about questions and we'll defer the rest of the subjects in the following weeks publicly
