00:00:05--> 00:00:32

Hey you are you wasting your time on social media again, your brothers and sisters in Islam net from Norway are establishing a message in a Dawa center. Establishing a message to convey the message of Islam is one of the best deeds a Muslim can do. There's a huge need for annoying you know this and I know this, so that makes it even greater. So give generously and Allah azza wa jal give you even more

00:00:33--> 00:00:55

As Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah here, what I care to how are you guys doing today is going to be a different kind of flavor, a different kind of thing that we're going to be doing together, because we should do reaction videos, we should talk about current affairs or current things that are happening. Today, we're going to talk about something completely different, which is probably more important than all that, in fact, definitely one point, which is the prayer.

00:00:56--> 00:01:21

The most important thing for a Muslim to do, the action of a Muslim does five times a day, will differentiate them and distinguish them from the disbelievers as the Hadith states. We're going to kind of think about the spiritual implications, the inner dimensions of the prayer. In fact, there's a nice book by Josie translated into English called the inner dimensions of prayer. So let's go through the Islamic prayer. Bit by bit.

00:01:23--> 00:01:51

When you start the prayer, you say Allahu Akbar, and you put your hands up, okay? We're not going to do the fifth of this mother spiritual aspects. Love Akbar means Allah is the Greatest. That's what that means. So as you're doing that, you imagine that Allah subhanaw taala is watching you, you imagine that Allah subhanaw taala is with you. Of course you don't imagine. He's with you, in essence, but you imagine that he's with you, and that he can hear what you're saying.

00:01:53--> 00:02:01

And then you start the praying, you say 100, a layer of blood, Amina Rahim. And you mentioned Surah Fatiha,

00:02:02--> 00:02:28

saying that all praise and thanks to be to Allah subhanaw taala, Lord of the Worlds, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, Master of the Day of Judgment, you will only worship and you will only ask for help guide us to the straight path, the path of those who you have favored, not the path of those of your anger. None of those will go straight. Now you're thinking about this and you're in the present moment.

00:02:31--> 00:02:49

You're not thinking about what's going to happen later on, about the bills, about this about that, about these anxieties that you have about your relationships, about business, you're not thinking about all these things. You're literally praying and thinking that this is all that there is.

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

This is all that there is.

00:02:55--> 00:02:57

There is nothing else going on at the moment.

00:02:58--> 00:03:00

In fact, the future doesn't exist.

00:03:02--> 00:03:08

There is no such thing as a free that's what you're thinking that's this is how to get sure in the prayer, say there's no future.

00:03:09--> 00:03:20

Only this conversation that you're having with Allah, the Creator, the Lord of the heavens and the earth at this point in time, the future doesn't exist. You're in a state of

00:03:21--> 00:03:28

Hodor you're present with Allah subhanaw taala. And that means that there is no future. Everything is just about that moment.

00:03:30--> 00:03:39

You're clear in your mind, and then you're doing another Surah maybe Allahu Ahad or whatever. And then you're saying a lot, but again, you're going down to the bank position,

00:03:41--> 00:03:42

and you're humbling yourself.

00:03:45--> 00:03:55

You're calm, and you say, subhanAllah Halim, and that means such glory be to the one who is all the means mighty.

00:03:56--> 00:03:59

And you're not humble, bowing,

00:04:00--> 00:04:00


00:04:02--> 00:04:16

And then you come back up, send me a holla holy man Hamidah that Allah has heard the one who has praised him. That's what that means. Because some people say this phrase and they don't know what it means. And then you say, Rob, Ban our local hand.

00:04:17--> 00:04:21

Oh, and our Lord, to you belongs, praise.

00:04:23--> 00:04:33

That's what I've been our little Hamed means and then now you go down and you say subhanallah I'll be ill allah and You are prostrating

00:04:34--> 00:04:38

and your the highest part of your head is in the most low part of the ground.

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

And you're seeing Glory be to the one who is most high

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

you're seeing that three times.

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

Subhan Allah or BL Allah

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

This is a very deep situation right now.

00:05:05--> 00:05:26

And you're thinking about that and you're humble, this is a very relaxing position. This is a very peaceful position. This is the most peaceful position you can imagine. This is the best situation. There's nothing more important than that position in the entire day. There's nothing more important than that position in your entire life, in fact, so you're in that position.

00:05:28--> 00:05:29

This is why you were created.

00:05:30--> 00:05:39

This is the purpose of life. This is everything you need to know. There's everything you need to do. There's nothing more to life than this.

00:05:40--> 00:05:55

And then you come back up, or be affiliated with Phil you say, you know, or Allah forgive me, ALLAH forgive because we've done lots of sins. So we're being a bit accountable when you go back down. After you've asked Allah, the king

00:05:56--> 00:06:00

to forgive you, you go back down to power bill, Alice power bill again.

00:06:02--> 00:06:06

And that's one unit of prayer. And you repeat that and, and so on.

00:06:08--> 00:06:09

If you get this right,

00:06:10--> 00:06:13

you get Hannah was a man, you get the sweetness of faith.

00:06:15--> 00:06:19

Because we have five presidents, this is a really beautiful, Yannick meditation

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

kind of exercise, not the kind of meditation that these machines do.

00:06:26--> 00:06:31

And the ones who worship other than God know you're worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:06:32--> 00:06:38

there's nothing greater that you can do as a human being you know that there's nothing but there's nothing better you can do the time

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

there's no money that you can amass

00:06:42--> 00:06:51

there is no fame that you can get. There's no you know, adornments that you can put on. There's nothing

00:06:54--> 00:07:05

this is peace. This Ella basically lights out my envelope. This is surely with the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest

00:07:13--> 00:07:46

make sure that when you're praying next time you think about those things with Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to who ever build a mosque for Allah, Allah will build a similar the house in Jannah. And we know the great reward that will not only be gained but rather will fill your grave after your death. Whenever someone prays that whenever someone gives shahada in the masjid whenever someone learns something in the masjid, yes, that will be something that you will have on your scale.
