a la hora Sula, hufa fosun Lima. Indeed, our praise and our gratitude is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala entirely. Allah is most entitled and worthy of our words of praise, and our words and actions of gratitude.
We ask Allah for guidance, and we ask a lot to keep us steadfast upon his guidance. We ask Allah for forgiveness,
from our shortcomings and mistakes and we ask Allah for protection.
And we bear witness that no one is worthy except Allah alone, he guides whom He wills and none can guide those that he has not guided. And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his last and final prophet and messenger. We ask Allah to shower our beloved messenger with compliments and salutations. The best that we could do on the eve of Friday and throughout the day of Friday, is to increase in salutations upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam solo Allah Rasool Allah Allah, Allah Allah Muhammad Ali Mohammed conocer later Allah Ibrahim Oh at early Ibrahim, in nikka homido Majeed let us remind each other to renew our taqwa of Allah subhanahu wa
tada for it is his right. It took a long help I took it and let us make sure that we go through this life until the very last moments in submission is to Islam Lila, will in Thea Duda, who built via obeying Allah subhana wa Taala in what he commanded, and abstaining from that which he has forbidden. That is piety. That is taqwa that is the road to success in this life, and in the hereafter. Allahu Subhana, who had that Tada, our most merciful, our most generous, our most wise Lord and creator, in this perfect dean of ours, that he has blessed us to be a part of, has created certain mechanisms within what Allah established, he has created certain mechanisms for us to be
elevated in our status, and for us to be forgiven.
from our mistakes, and our shortcomings, we understand that in this journey of life, we will surely fall into mishap, we will surely lapse in our good judgment. But along with subhana wa tada has not left us alone, to continue and to say stay stuck in our moments of wrongdoing. But rather Allahu Subhana, who had died and His Messenger have guided us to statements and actions by which we can free ourselves of our own mistakes.
And of those mechanisms, the greatest of which is a flutter.
The message today is very simple. And the reminder is nothing new. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a slider to new solid, the devotional act of worship known as solid is light is a means of illumination of sada to know
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that it is
what holds up our head. The Prophet spoke to more as the great companion, and he said to him, I do look at it.
Should I not inform you of what is the most important of all matters and affairs and a better era sorella
Please tell me on messenger of Allah so Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this authentic hadith said, Allah so Allah, Al Islam,
the master of all affairs, the most important thing that exists is Islam.
Your submission to Allah subhana wa tada in this Deen of Allah in Edina in the law and Islam were removed
who have fallen, and then the messenger set and the pillar the backbone, the spine, which holds up the head of all affairs is flooded, such that if the pillar is removed, what will happen to what it is holding up, it will collapse.
It will collapse or spill among Islam, where I moved to Uppsala. Now we have heard about Salah before, and it is worthy of being reminded of over and over again. But today the discussion is not about the obligation of Salah because we should know that solo five times a day is an absolute obligation upon every adult Muslim.
But rather, the discussion today is a reminder of how Salah is a means of cleansing. How Salah is of the best ways of seeking Allahu Subhana who with the others forgiveness, because many of us may feel burdened, carrying the weight, and the thought, and the memories of our mistakes. Small but perhaps plentiful. Few but perhaps great.
And we learn from our learned in the field of psychotherapy that when a person does something wrong,
and they recognize that it is wrong, then they feel guilt. They feel guilty.
And we learn from these individuals that there is a relationship between guilt and shame. And guilt is when a person recognizes I've done something wrong, what I did was not correct. And they feel bad about it.
If that guilt is not transferred into a positive action,
to transform or to better one's behavior or one's life, then it leads to what is referred to as shame where the person is no longer thinking about what I did is wrong, but then they feel I am wrong. I am bad. I am incapable of redemption. And that is a very dark place.
There is a very dark place because Allahu subhanahu wa tada said, in a hooligan asuna roshanda McAfee rune that nobody ever falls into despair from the mercy of Allah, except those that have disbelieved in Allah.
So to prevent that cycle from continuing, Allah has given us mechanisms. So we can put them as pegs to interrupt that dangerous behavioral cycle,
and transform our days and our nights in our lives.
Through actions and words of Toba and few sincere intentions, and as we said, of the greatest ways of seeking forgiveness from Allah is slaughter. Perhaps today if we only paused on this one aspect of sada that it is a means of cleansing and of purifying a way for me to shed this weight of my mistakes, then perhaps that is what we need to change our perception of salon. If our Salah has become nothing but a chore that we do out of fear of punishment, then perhaps we should reflect on how it is an opportunity for cleansing so we can go to it out of love and out of yearning for Allah's hope.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and I do look him, my Impala he'll be he'll coppia Why
should I not inform you about that which if you do so, Allah will raise your rank and expiate your sins and your mistakes, they said yes or messenger of Allah. He mentioned three things is about Hulu Ll McCarran, where Catherine Hooper Aaron masajid, went to borrow Salatin, the father,
the Messenger of Allah to complete and to perfect will do the washing before salon
and to increase and accumulate more footsteps to the masjid. Meaning to go regularly to the masjid and to wait from one Salah waiting for the next to perform the next meaning that after one Salah comes the next one and the next it's not one and done. As we said previously, this Deen is about continuity of good deeds. The Messenger of Allah is saying that when we wash our will do that as a means of elevating rank and expiating sins. And when we walk to the masjid, the place of salon, we are elevating in our rink and exploiting our sins. And when we do one salaat after another after another
After another that is a means of elevating rank and expiating. Since Allah subhana wa tada is so generous and so vast in his mercy, all of these things that the Messenger of Allah mentioned they are related to Salah they're not even Salah itself. Did you notice that he is talking about preparing for us Allah going to Sala waiting for the next Salah, intending to perform it and following up.
All of these are matters related to Salah. And when you peruse the sooner when you peruse the collection of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam traditions, you find an absolutely incredible amount of narrations that talk about how Salah is so virtuous, and how it is an opportunity for forgiveness, time and again, before we even get to Salah. Let's pause on this act of worship known as Lu the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said mento
Harada coppia hoomin just said he had that mentality of
the Messenger of Allah said Whoever goes and makes will do and perfect that will look completes it washes all the necessary parts of
that person's loom that person sins and mistakes, physically exit and leave their body from every part of their body. The Messenger of Allah said until the sins are escaping from under a person's fingernails
Sala will do is it means not only a physically washing our skin with water, but of cleansing ourselves and our record of deeds. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in an absolutely incredible and detailed Hadith, either told by Muslim men when the Muslim when the believer makes will do
for cassava, Harajuku Meanwhile, at Nevada, La Habra, Rainey, Hema Alma Alma, Katarina, when they believe or makes will do and they wash their face and will do. The Messenger of Allah said every sinful thing that they did with their eyes, leaves from their face when they wash their face, then they must have drove unless and when they wash their arms and their hands. From their hands emanate and exit every sinful de that they did with their physical hand. And when they wash their feet, exiting from each foot are the sins for each step that they took towards something wrong or sinful. Had Raja nokian minutes lube.
The Prophet concluded the narration saying by the time this believer is done with although they leave that place of will do and they are cleansed and purified from all of their sins.
Such an opportunity, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself, once made will do so carefully. And with such a focused demeanor, to what love is and and will do salatu wa sallam, he perfected his although and the companions were watching, and they were watching very diligently. And he was doing it so carefully and passionately. And when he concluded he spoke to them and he said, mentor well.
He has some masala carotene. Now you had the Sufi man who feola who Matata dynamic.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Did you see the will do that I just did. Whoever anybody ever makes will do. The way I have just made will do and then stands and prays to like as they will be forgiven of all of those
who fear Allah who matter demean them be
a promise from the Messenger of Allah, who fear Allah who met them and
then we come to the call to Salah we're not even speaking about Sanaya and then the call to Salah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Man either Hina is Moroni de eyeshadow Allah, Allah illallah wa the hula Sheree Kala shadow Mohammed and Abu rasuluh are only to be like
a tsunami de Dena Wahby Mohammed
Salah mana BIA houfy Allah who Matata means MB,
the Messenger of Allah said when you hear then and after the event, you make the testimony of faith. You say I shadow Allah, you know, in the law, I bear witness that there is no one worthy to be worshipped except Allah exclusively alone without any partners. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his last and final messenger. And then you make three brief statements of conviction. I don't need to be law here but I am content and I am pleased with Allah as my Lord. Will bill Islami Dina, I am content and I accept Islam as my way of life with the Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala rasulillah. I accept and I
I'm pleased that humans have a long way to send them is my messenger.
The Prophet said after these few words of Vicar after the other than the one who makes this statement will be forgiven of their sins.
Who fear Allah who matter but then I mean,
then we come to the sada itself, how huge of an opportunity it is for forgiveness, but also to like give a metaphor, so we can understand it. Imagine how much cleansing takes place when we stand in Florida. But also don't ask the companions
he's asking them please tell me Give me your opinion. About a term low and r&b. Bobby, I heard you come. You have a 32 minute moving Yomi come summer. What have you upcoming delana Hey Shay,
the Messenger of Allah asked the companions I want you all to imagine, if somebody had a flowing river right outside of their front door. You open the door to your house, you open the door to your apartment, and you find a flowing river of clean, pure water.
And five times a day, you go out and you completely bathe yourself in that water.
Not once a day, not twice a day, but five times in that day, you open your door, you stroll outside and you completely bathe and shower yourself in this flowing clear River. Rasulullah asked the companions imagine someone with that living situation. Would they have any dirt remnants on their body? Would anything remain of impurity on their body? If they did so, five times a day day in day out on hula hula sutala they said it's not imaginable a messenger of Allah someone who does that they're gonna be perfectly clean.
They're going to be perfectly clean.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said furtherly como sola
fatale kamisato Salatu hums young Allah will be he'll coppia such as the example of the $5 a day. Allah wipes away washes away erases the record of our blemishes and our stains and our mistakes.
The words of Allah carry so much virtue and power. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said either a manual for amino Rasulullah said when you hear the Imam recite surah to refer to her and say mean then you should also say amin then say amin for amino and any means of Allah answer our
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, for intall melodica to me.
The messenger said because the angels are with you and they also are saying I mean you can hear them but the messenger said they are and we believe him.
Then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Furman wife aka Amina Amina mela aka hula hula Taka Dharma means MB. So whoever says me and and that coincides with the angels beside them also saying I mean, then their previous sins will be forgiven.
And in how easy is that? How much effort is in there very little.
Which shows us how merciful Allah subhana wa tada is yet another opportunity in the words of Salah. Similarly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when the man stands up from record from bowing and says, send me along with the man Hermida then say, oh Ben Allah can hand then say Allahu mela bernetta can hand Oh Allah our Lord and Master to you belongs our praise and gratitude brought banana Callaghan. The Messenger of Allah said from Anwar felco todo, todo el Mirage horfield Allahumma Taka dama means MB. Again, if we make that statement, and it coincides with the mela eco with the angels making that same statement, because they are then the previous sins will be
So many opportunities that Allahu Subhana Allah gives us and this completely changes and transforms. The idea that many people carry that along with some Hana horchata is vengeful, whether Allah subhanho wa Taala takes pleasure in punishing
anyone who reads these narrations will come to the conclusion that it is quite the opposite, that Allah loves those who repent. And Allah loves to forgive those who seek forgiveness a lot ask the question in the end, now your friend will either become anyone who hasn't
inkling of fat, or anyone who is so deep in their moment of doom and gloom that shaylen has taken advantage of that and told them your Lord will not forgive you. Allah poses this question in the Quran. What will Allah do with your punishment? What benefit does it do for Allah? Allah punishing His servants does not increase him and Mike does not increase him in power. It does nothing for Allahu subhana wa tada he is already the almighty all powerful million federal law who be either becoming shackled to momentum. All you have to do Allah says is be grateful and have conviction in your belief. Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah has no desire in your punishment. In that case, how
merciful Allah is along the Filipina in the cocoon della Farah, Allah forgive us, you are the most forgiving and most merciful.
wa Salatu was Salam ala Adam and Luna via VEDA Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik at essid you know Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira we have been talking about how the amazing act of worship of Salah is a means of cleansing is a means of purifying is a means of forgiveness from Allah subhanahu wa tada for all our past shortcomings, and then came to the Messenger of Allah. And he said to him, in a moment of desperation, and guilt and sadness, the man came and said, O Messenger of Allah, I have committed a sin.
In the outskirts of Medina, I behaved immorally and unlawfully, with a woman doing a Zina It was not adultery. But he said nonetheless I behaved in an immoral manner.
What should I do and he came pleading with the Messenger of Allah. So the Messenger of Allah remained silent for a moment. And Omar was nearby. And Omar said to the to the man, referred cetera Allah knows that subtlety enough sec. Omar said to them that Allah has concealed you. I wish that you had also concealed your faults. But nonetheless, the man was seeking redemption seeking forgiveness.
Eventually, he did not find a response from the messenger right away so he turned and began walking away. When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had received what he had received revelation and he called him back and he recited to him the verse from Surah Hood. What a theme is tada tada in a hurry was lF Amina Lael in Al Hassan it used him in a secret that he could call it that killing the messenger recite it to him Optimus law established Sala Baba in a hurry was with FM in a lane at the furthest ends of the day and during the night, meaning establish all of the Sadat throughout the day and the nights.
In the senate you have an essay at a law followed up that reminder by saying that good deeds do away with bad deeds. There is a relationship between those two in the most immediate sense allies reminding us of that good deed that he just mentioned Asana.
Karma to Sala does away with se does away with mistakes, and poor choices. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith that is sound, narrated by Abubakar mami la Julian listen to this hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said mamiko juhlin usually with mbun soumaya, Ufa taco, so may you suddenly feel La Ilaha for Allahu Allah.
The Messenger of Allah began the statement with an emphatic clause. There is no person memory ledger and there is no man
using the bosom Ben commits a mistake. And the Prophet said them been open ended it could be small, it could be big. Many of us may think I don't do major sins. I'm good. I mean hedge your ombre. Give my zeca Amina machine for Ramadan. I'm good. But also less than using the Busan ban any them.
A person may think I am good, but they harm others with their tongue. I am good. But they are abusing someone in their wealth. I am good but they cut off ties of kinship.
I am good. But they are backbiting and harboring evil feelings and thoughts about a fellow believer
Rasul Allah said you've been through them but any of them
then afterwards, they
