have been doable whenever you also do stuff that had anything to do with money Toronto
Allahu Allah He was salam. A shout out to her. Fittingly dark limit is
now beginning of law Oh praise and glory belongs to Allah Lord of the worlds and may be some blessings of Allah be upon Muhammad,
his 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 Allah Allah tiny partners at the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was indeed his prophet and a servant and His messenger and they chose the words the words of Allah and the best guidance, the sunnah 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 street. It only leads 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 salah provides for us
and we are up to the 28 unique characteristic of the Salah. And that is that salah is a cause for success and for victory in this world and in the hereafter.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says by the F la Hollywood meno a Latina who feels solid, the hidden costs erode. 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 elsewhere that was a certain amino
and so that Allah Allah azza wa jal says, but the F la Hemanta zakiyah Was that charisma or b He foresaw Fossella he has certainly succeeded the one who purifies himself.
And what is the description of a person that purifies himself that he versus continue and say,
well, that charisma or be and he had to remember the name of his Lord fell silent, then he prayed.
Many Robert mentioned is referring Saul to read, write, and a person mentioned Allah who did the Quran, Allahu Akbar Allah and then fell Salah and then he makes the salah has a lot to read. But regardless of whether it is specific psaltery or to all the salah words that are preceded by the remembrance of Allah will that will do or that or calm or sunnah with or otherwise there's a whole 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 Salah and success is crystal clear the other when you say hey, our Salah Ayala,
fella 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 Azza Letizia, you will Adina Manoa petofi, attend fifth butuh with Kula Oh believers, when you meet a fear the opposing party, the opposing army, first boot to that, so stand firm, with Corolla and remember ALLAH, 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 Allah azza wa jal legislated for the Muslims. So I'll do hold the fear prayer what's the fear prayer?
What's the fear pray whenever you're afraid to go pray the fear of prayer right? What's the fear prayer?
was what is it that's how if your prayers like what is this your prayer?
What is also called thoughtless
sisters you want to help rescue the brothers?
What saddle have the brothers into a three dimensional the fear prayer is
I just like to love how you write the prayer in Vatsal. Allah Azza did legislated for this ummah, that when the Muslim armies in battle
even then they're not excused for not free. But he legislated for them because the circumstances demanded Yes, time is of the essence a modified version of the prayer. So if you're praying to rock as half the army praise one rock and the other half will pray the other rock so you're praying one record in reality, but the point the reference that we want to quote here is what? Perhaps the reason why Salah was not
perhaps the reason why Salah was not excused altogether even in battle is because Salah is an integral part of preparing the believers hard to earn victory. So he needs Salah and then more than ever, and those Allah azza wa jal prescribed the fear prayer Allahu Allah.
Also the connection between Salah and success and victory the either side of us or them or Amazon people quoting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said they're in in NEMA Yoon Seung Yong Sula, who having an OMA with Larissa, indeed Allah gives victory to this ummah to this nation by virtue of the weakest members of it. And then he says be dry to him will be solid to him and another narration will be a philosophy him by virtue of their supplications and their salah, so the Salah is connected to victory of the Sunnah the salah of the week is an especially important part. And the dua of the week is especially important part 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, or the weak members of the community, those that can do the least amount of push ups, right? Who is weak, weak members of the community.
Know Allah gives victory to this OMA by virtue of its weakest members, the members of this own, so they're Muslims.
They're just supposed to know 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 Ummah by virtue of their Salah by virtue of their dua by virtue of this sincerity. Why is the weak person especially such an asset,
whatsoever special about the weak person?
This this help?
I'm asking this is why this is so special towards the victory of the OMA.
That's an aspect of your strength or Shaohua. What about the weak is
I just said that, why?
How come the weak they're solid, so effective abilities of the man by command to
last one go. Because the drive
is a mother makes the guys always come through
the weakness when a person acknowledges their weakness. This is what activates your DUA. 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 Allah with more sincerity and more
humility. Why is the travelers door accepted? And the first thing persons who are accepted
and the oppressed persons who are accepted those are all one Hadith. Why those guys?
Because the traveler he's a little bit more humbled, right? He's worried he's not around feels a little inferior, vulnerable? Will I ever see my family, right?
The first thing person you feel a little weaker and fragile when you're fasting. So your dog is exempted, more more likely to be accepted. And the oppressed person is the person that's feeling victimized, right, feeling that he is being subjugated, right, he's not powerful enough to avenge himself. This is the right is accepting this of the reasons.
And so the weak, 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 for 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 shouldn't consider them a burden. They could be the source of goodness and sustenance in your life.
You know what it's like the issue of sins preventing you and you're getting to eat on somebody else's tab.
The hadith and Sunnah of the manager, or at least hate everyone in the room or the Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
and no people withhold paying this account of their wealth it's a big sin right? In Level ammonia roll conterminous summer while lol Bihar in Millenium
they stop, they withhold thing there's a cap, Allah who will withhold the rain from the skies, provisions and were it not for the grazing animals, they would receive no rain at all. Meaning sometimes these droughts we see are because of collectively withholdings, a cat this one
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 they could be an acid, Allah His victory to the soma through the euro and the salah of the week.
And so it hustle was used to say our exam or Allah juris, Allah, Allah, Allah when you give importance to the commands of Allah likes Allah, then Allah who will give you importance and significance then you will be earning victory. And Allah azza wa jal in console Allah has sort of come where you said with academic only if you give support to Allah, meaning the cause of Allah by upholding his religion, will he give you support, and he will keep your feet firm, you know what it means to keep the feet firm.
The LMS said, 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 firm upon the straight path. So you don't deviate, and to keep to 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 surrounds all of that, because think about it, it all one leads to another. You have to be pleasing in the sight of Allah to earn the victory, and to be considered to be continuous recipient of guidance, right. And if you are 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 Allah says in the Quran, and he declared that he said, well call Allah Who in the American and Allah had declared I am with you. Let him come to Salah if you establish the prayer,
and Allah azza wa jal Lavina in McKenna that with all the Agama salah, those that whom when we established them in the land, they established the prayer
you know, in the end of time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us that this the stone and the tree will call out to the believer and say, Yeah, I'll be the love right oh slave, Allah, you know, the Hadith.
Come behind me, right? He's hiding here. Can you imagine, oh slave of Allah? Would that be said to someone who doesn't make solid?
Can is that even imaginable? How can you be considered a slave of Allah when he does not feel powerless, he feels free to ignore the appointment of Allah subhanho wa taala. He doesn't feel bound to those appointments five times a day, at the very least.
And he also told us some Allahu alayhi wa sallam that at the end of time when Allah azza wa jal permits for the return of resale is Jesus the son of Mary, and Allah grants him and the Muslims victory against the JAL, the Antichrist, the False Messiah, he said, and our love will command the earth to release its blessings. And the people will live in a time of prosperity. And Allah who will cause the animals to become peaceful, even with one another, and the fruits to grow, the produce will be of immense sizes. He said to the degree that a group of men are also meaning 10 or less men will sit there eating from a pomegranate and then they will seek shade in its shell. Can you
imagine? Right? He said, Sal, Allahu alayhi salam, and at that time, just so you understand, who is this generation that will earn that and at that time, one such the Salah, once a Jew to be more beloved to them in 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 that will receive all those promises.
The 29th unique virtue of Salah is that Salah saves a person from the punishment of the grief
the best thing a person can furnish his grave with and prepare his grief with is the obedience of ALLAH SubhanA wa
Allah Azza Tasman Caffarelli ecoflo Whomever disbelieves that upon him will be his disbelief it'll be held against him.
Woman I mean, I'll slowly hand fairly over fusi him yam had dune and whoever does righteousness that it is for their own selves that they are paving it they are preparing
Magellan to jump right from Allah about this idea.
He said fairly unforeseen Mm hmm doing for themselves. They are paving he says weeding in their graves. They're paving for themselves a grave a comfortable stay in the grave.
I believe in our best so the number one who used to say to but
Lehman banner Cobra, who have learned yet Hello.
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. He doesn't mean to dig the grave. Someone will take care of that for you. Right?
Is someone who builds his grave before he enters it. Whatever I can do near come Lanta Toluca, who and he divorces this world before it divorces him well
and he pleases his Lord before he meets him.
And the height of Anna Sydney Malika hill behind Buhari and Muslim he said some Allah Allah 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 and 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 hadith of Bharat ignorance are the law and the famous long Hadith about the journey of the soul up into the heavens and coming back down into the grave. The height you must have heard
of the most graphic detailed authentic hadith in the entire sermon.
He said sal Allahu Allah is and part of that hadith for the believing slave. 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 furnish, his grave is widened for him first, why this 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? The Salah arrives. And you know the hadith of Abu Hurayrah Allah on a very beautiful Hadith
about what Salah does for a person after they die. He said to us and I hate this narrative. I mean the data labels on him. He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that when I'm when a person dies, he's placed in his grave.
And then he hears the footsteps of his family leaving as they walk away from this everybody. Then he set some alarms for in Canada Mina that if he is a believer,
will Salah is brought in place that his head the salah actually hasn't materials materialize. And it's placed that his head and fasting UCM is pleased that his right
and his his Zakah or soda pot is charities are pleased that his left and then his acts of goodness in his command, the good and forbidding evil and being gracious with the people all this benevolence of his is placed at his feet. He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and so the punishment of the grave the flames, so the punishment comes from his head. And so the salah itself says the Salah is speaking as if it's a person, the salah says Murthy barely met the heart, there's no entrance here. You're not getting him through me.
And so the punishment comes to his right. And the first thing says, Matthew by the method, there's no entrance here. You're not coming in through from my direction. And then so the punishment comes from his left is 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 both him from below and his act of grace.
Is this a monthly payment? Well, there's no entrance here. So so that saves a person from the punishment of the grave that would otherwise surround him. Number 30
Is that salah is the wish of the dead those that have died of the greatest wishes is to across of solder and your mama Dynamo Allah in Arabic and authentic Chang from Abu Hurayrah. He says of the Quran that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed by a grave and he said whose grave is this? They said so and so. The name wasn't mentioned. So he said to them, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam raka attorney coffee for attorney matter. Rule number 10 I followed your Z do who might have Fiamma who are shower?
I have gooey Li Min Buckley Yeti dunya
to Lightworkers which you build it to not be less of like make fun of us you wouldn't be a Muslim. belittle me you don't think that big what TANF alone and you offer them voluntarily mean they're not even obligations.
Were this person to be able to add them to his deeds right now. He pointed at the grave he said is dearer to him than everything that remains of your world he could just add two more records. So it's the wish of the deceased once he dies
Ibrahim is busy that are him Allah he says at any react LiCl Yahoo places one of the great scholars of his time as a reaction place he came to me
and he says yes have something to for him Museum is a
surreal place he says to him, yeah buzz have come let us visit the people of the Hereafter he means the grave 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 reaction place he said he said to me yeah buzz have
Mata Raha Medina. motorman, Nian, no Mooney, this person he pointed at the grievance that this person buried right here, if he had a wish, what do you think it would be?
So he said, he said, he said, so I said to him, that Allah sent him back to this world
so that he could enjoy an opportunity to obey Allah subhanho wa Taala and fix the things he must have interacted for interferes.
So react says had, 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 than he get in his worship, right. He refilled his gas tank with his visit to the grave and that's when Morozova advisor to visit the graves because it reminds of the Hereafter this interest in the dunya he says so he got up and he became even more developed in his worship and very soon thereafter he died
you know, Allah Azza hits me noon, had the ledger I had a whole note all about build your own. When that finally comes to one of them is Oh my Lord send me back. lonley Armand Assante Hanzi Mehta rock, so that I may do good deeds in this world that I left behind. Allah azza wa jal says, can learn in her Kennametal who are called into her nose. Rather, it is a word that he says.
You know, there are two diversity of the scholars mentioned regarding this idea.
In their head, can you imagine who according to her, it is both a word he says.
Some of the scholars had 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 Allah Azza saying to him, no, no, no, it's just the word that he says he's all talk. Right? All you can do is wish he had his chance. The other deaf seed of the idea is that no, you're not going back Kela in Naha, Kelly Mattoon who are called elucha It is a word that he knew that he simply says meaning hola when he says a word. It's done. He said Your time is up. Your time is up. He said nobody comes back to Dooney. After leaving it, it said it's done.
Both of proceeds go hand in hand. Meaning that the language carries the potential both of them in the room for and by the way is that Allah whoever it is
Look 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 lo Tada.
But then Allah Azza speaks about the hereafter elsewhere and he says, Well whom your study who Nephi have a banner of Regina Nirmal saw the kind of viral levy couldn't narrow and they scream very demeaning and the hellfire. And they say, Oh our Lord, send us back.
Pull us out any of the fire. So we may do good deeds Other than that, which we used to do about this If Allah He is 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? Allah is 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 that are you to take advantage of your time? You know, this, this concept of that we hear all around us, like YOLO right? You only live once this is true. You only live once meaning you only have this one opportunity, right? Like 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 only met Muhammad or him only used to say My Allah Shiva Illa cache in fee to me, for example,
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 the GO GO where in the world this happened. I'm sitting here cracking jokes of 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 gonna get plugged in world keeps going.
And that's when he told us Allah Allah, Allah used to take advantage of five before five, right? 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, but 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 this dunya before they ever thought they would be.
ln 10 minutes a child lost the number 31
Is that Salah saves a person from the flames of Allah azza wa jal in the hereafter.
It is very interesting Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in that in that he Mala can unite during the Coulee Salah team yeah Benny
Noorani community open to her for altfi
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 didn't?
Know what is the fire that you lit yourself
you sins right you qualify yourself for being burned by this fire. You lit that fire for yourself. Oh Children of Adam, get up to your fires once you lit and put them out, put them out out at Salah he calls out each solar This is your opportunity he lit that fire here's your chance.
And hey don't let Miss Ruth he says our solemn data important I tell him when you burn and you burn
and then you pray
the morning prayer and so it washes it we mean you burn you burn mean you do things that qualify you for burning. He says also lemon and you burn and you burn then you pray the full repress with washes it and you burn and you burn it with acid free, then washes it and you burn and you burn to bring them into the period washes it and you burn and you burn until you pray they're a sharp prayer and it washes it
he says to Matera Munna fella Dr. Wallach who practice they booboo 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 Salah is what washes away these things
and it's like a Muslim hater remark the labor
or the ALLAH and he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said nearly done now. Liana Gennaro Salah Pablo Furi Shamcey welcome la Rubia nobody will enter the fire that praise before the sunrises and before the sunsets meaning fetch and
fetch is one of the most difficult periods to meet. And Salah loss is one of the busiest times of the day is 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 often busiest times of the day it doesn't mean if you pray those two prayers you don't pray 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 will automatically catch be catching the rest of the prayers
but even even the person that committed sins so long as he's he did commit the sin of leaving solid
that will save that will protect him as a person sometimes should one comes to me system how can you pray after you've done X y&z Right? We say pray because the prayer will 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.
in Ankara and Muslim answers that the prophets of Allah Bartlett your Salam said is very Allahu Allah.
When Allah Who wishes when Allah has concluded judging between his sleeves
what are the youth Regina now? Men Arada Johanna, me May ash hadoo, Allah, Allah 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 wants to have mercy on those who are who die Muslim who remain the Muslims, or at least have the seed of iman. So Allah finishes judging between the slaves, and then he wishes to remove from the fire. Those he wants to have mercy on from those
that testified there is no God but Allah, Mr. Rahul home and you create your home for Yachty for whom we are aligned with the sujood. He commands them them hear me to the angels, to pull them out of the fire, and they recognize them by the mark of their prostration.
Allah forbids 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 I love, choose yourself mercy on this person, see how much he loves to do, how much he loves the prayer, he tells him go get them and angels recognize him as the guy that needs to do and get them out.
And he gets recognized by that sign of sujood on his face, because ALLAH forbids the fire to touch. Other Hadith mentioned that when that person is taken out
from the fire Allah brings them to the 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 a Johanna Vu and the people that came out of Johanna, then they're known as Dr. Paul Ryan and those that were liberated by a man or woman, the Most Merciful mean they didn't even deserve to come out but it's only because Allah is the most merciful, right? Did they qualify by simply being Muslims to come out eventually?
So Allah azza wa jal says, says we're a team solid will add to the character one or two pandemonium fusi Coleman clearly that you do worry a lot
and establish the prayer and pay this occur. The two most important acts are the two pillars of Islam after the shahada, then what does he say about acts like these is in whatever you send for for yourself, you will find it there for you with Allah,
that means Salah and in other words, they beat you to the hereafter and they wait for you there right? You send it forth. And then Allah says for yourself you're not doing it for AHA you're doing it for you. Right You're doing it to please Allah for your own good not for Allah may not for his benefit.
One or two per diem only m physical Medusa and for the hereafter for yourself of good, you will find it there without Allah. So Salah who 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 the dude the viewers
unless the Hadith narrated was how soon and the for acceptable imagine from heavy metal the Allahu Taala on and she said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, man, half a lot over our guides and a couple of booty water barring Didac could remind him now, whoever prays for rock as before though, and for rock eyes after though
it becomes forbidden for the fire detection. So that Salah we said, a cause for victory and success saves you from the punishment of the great it's the wish of the disease and it saves you from the flames.
It remains to three virtues of solid so that not only gets you into gender but raises your levels and,
and that, to the degree of how you perfected your solar will be how you see a must face in the hereafter which is greater than Jana, and then Salah has been a guiding light for so many meanings Salah is one of the biggest doors for people to enter Islam to see the Muslims perform their soul that will lead to a whole bunch of testimonials on that before we move to Chapter two which is the dangers of leaving solder. We'll stop there is Allah Allah Allah Mohammed while earning or sacrilege marine on handling lateral Quran
