Have you let me know salatu salam ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali he also he may know that since the weather condition is has prevented, I believe many people from coming and we combined model with Russia
with the excuse of snowfall. So what we're going to do, I was going to talk about the life of Muhammad Shafi
because I know many people would like to be here when we talk about this, so we're going to give an alternative topic today, which will fall off from the subject of today's hotma inshallah, inshallah, next week, we will talk about the life of the mammoth Shafi. The life of woolly mammoth Shafi is quite rich and the details about it are so many, so,
so this is why I didn't want a lot of people to miss it. So inshallah we'll postpone it for next week. And we'll start we'll talk today about
something that has to do with the prayer and it's taken from the book being a dealer
basically could be translated in the presence of a law to emulate on film and about in a Sala, contemplations or reflections on the deeper meanings of Salah.
So first, the first topic here of chapter he talks about a Salah to will hire so I'll be reading from the Arabic text original Arabic text, and I will be explaining shortly briefly what this means because it's quite simple and straightforward. A select will hire a Salah to sad little loop. I have selected a sadness you can tell the Rona salata, Michelle ruffino, Echo Bell wakad O'Shea, but boo boo Mahabharata had a battle gelila he worked in the waffle and Nashville and have a philosophy how Vulcans Isla De Anza la hora boo Mina sama
basically, this says a
prayer, the prayer and life, the relationship between salah and life. It says the prayer is the reason or one of the main causes for the happiness of the hearts is the people of the prayer the people who observe the prayer, they are the happiest among all humanity. They look forward to the prayer. With so much eagerness and love
and the law the love of the prayer has been mixed with their hearts and with their flesh
at a time when most people have grown heedless and negligent of the Salah, and they don't appreciate this great treasure that has been given to them from Allah subhanho wa Taala confusable duty as habitable men are hurt in war hesalite Allah Martha home in a slot is salatu wa barakaatuh ye terminal Wahid amin hula we are older either dunya de hakama Duda little Haleakala houfy sama La Moneda waterpoof Aegina timaru shatin Ravi mahalo shot with an SMS a beer on jun net.

They feel the regrets because they have missed a lot of the beauty of Sala during their lives. So they wish that they could come back to this life just for a few minutes. To fly in the horizons of conversing with Allah subhana wa tada and to live in the garden and the paradise on earth which is which are the moments of salah and to smell the fragrance of Paradise while engaging in the prayer in this life. A Salah to in the heart, Mahabharata
what was Salah? These are the greatest moments of existence and life.
And these are the highest states for the soul when it engages in salah and iatefl insane obeying Albania, the harlot Yuna g waitara Nadia Kalamata Fatah boo forma, how roho Phil mallacoota Allah.
These are beautiful moments when the when man on the human being stands in the presence or before his creator.
He speaks with him and converses with him and he recites the words of his own creator. So his soul flies in paradise in the high strength in Paradise, while he is still on Earth. What 234 other will do the mineralogy Nan so his soul looks at the earth and existence from the heights of heaven in these moments. What a playful female I mean, t comma F Nan, and it takes the fruits of Paradise
During the moments of Salah, the how vital Latin sir to sell with Buddha Murphy, these moments these pressure moments
they are more precious than the whole lifetime of a human being who does not know this
but he will hire to have a patent This is the reality of life. You're searching for life you will find it in the moments and the minutes and Sala What am I doing a Delica Oh, harmonica Helen anything other than this is just a mirage. And it's just wishful thinking.

He only does the external physical act of the prayer and his tongue recites the words and the earth card.
the only thing he gets from Salah is what you can see and what you can hear.
Now see boohooman harakat will abandon the only thing that he gets from Salah is the movement of the motion of the body. What is really worked and the occupation of time. That's it. Tara huka Eamon block here and surgeon rupal Bula when you find him standing, bowing and making sujood but his heart is somewhere else. His heart is not present in the salon.
The man who left you have one minute Dunia khaleel His heart is engaged in matters of this dunya some something about this dunya what Cathedral happily and the big things about them about this life are just tiny and small. There's nothing really precious about this life. For just a goofy word in Waterloo Wi Fi what you will find his heart is one word is in one world and his body is in another world. So his body is in Salah, but his heart is with the dunya Salah to who better known Bonnaroo his prayer is a body without a soul washes gelatin vilasa mala and the tree that has no fruits.

Why because they thought the Salah is only this physical acts minzu attend and Roja was certainly held Maktoum that has no soul and has no spirit for them. mahamudra Hara catton waterkloof that out of the unhealed the Yeah, so he thought Salah is merely a physical act. So he thought Salah is not really important is not so why should I engage in it? So he left it altogether? He said it's just a physical act so I don't need it.
Yeah Allah Hema should defer pata
is basically saying how great his sense of deprivation is, this man has deprived himself of so many great blessings. Man as to how difficult is his state difficulties his life? Young shame will keep Ben Allah wa je Bethan Anil, follow him at home. He walks around the Earth searching for happiness, searching for more thinking this is where he will find happiness. Women who abandoned her Jetta who are at home, and he doesn't know that what he is searching for. It's actually behind this physical apparatus of the Salah.
what happiness is searching for the meaning he's searching for. He's trying to get it in this dunya actually, it lies beyond the physical acts of the Salah if he manages to search beyond
But he doesn't know this fact
what am I happy leaving my van you have a solid here to Homerton the room so he saw this happiness in something other than the prayer. So all his efforts will go in vain. In Nelly salata, canoes and masala for the Salah there are treasures there are secrets behind it Leonardo in lemon philosophy who are the only ones who will get these treasures are the ones who put their hearts and their sincerity in the solar what's other coffee in our here and they put their effort and their and their focus in the actions of the Sala What are Malibu iraq hahaha and his heart aspires to know what is beyond all of this physical acts physical acts of the salon and here to Chicago Mendoza Sala.

One pillar confy ethical higher and it is life it is more about engaging at a higher level with life. cannibal selfie your head was salata Illa de la gente in New York to LA and la de la salette about the multi. Some of the early generations loved salah and prayer so much that they asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to allow them to pray even after their death
for Canada and the UK power will move to Arizona to be what Allah Buddha Buddha cofeb in a day, so this person he feared that if he dies, that he would not be able to engage with Allah subhana wa tada in salah and connection to have the fabri tune and bonanni Sabatini bonanni one of the tablet in one of the scholars of Hadith verbeteren Fulani Rahim Allah upon Allah who
had an salata, I had a man holidayiq A salata, Abrahim afternoon, or Allah, if you have given any of your creation, the ability to pray in the grave after they die and they go to the grave, or Allah give it to me as well. Give it to me as well. So this person didn't want death to stop him from Salah why because he found his heart in it. He found so much enjoyment and so much meaning in it.
For blue selective in Islam, the station or the position of Salah in Islam,
a selected agenda, a bar that you will follow but Salah is the best of all acts of worship McKenna to selectively Islamic earlier the position of salah and Islam is so high. When are you Danny Hannah won and won a bet that if he had Hinman Zilla to Lima, and there is no act of worship, that is similar to the prayer in that level. For he or similar to be to a man it's the main pillar in a man. What I'm gonna do for starters is this is the foundation. You're all gonna be useful Allahu alayhi wa sallam in a higher light at a magical masala indeed the best of your actions. The best thing you can do is Salah is the prayer.
This is reported by Ahmed and even magia with an authentic chain of narration. A solid or a mega Deen so Salah is the foundation of the religion where it somolia teen and it is the avenue to certainty and trust in Allah. What actual robots and the most important of all acts of worship were a shadow half in us and the most known to all people. When Pharaoh half enough's and the most beneficial to the self and the soul. When he then he got a tennis shirt it will be by Ernie fugly how what a nail party This is what a loss of Hannah Montana in details he explained how the prayer should be performed performed in terms of time in terms of conditions, in terms of obligations in
terms of pillar pillars and so on and so forth.
Without any old party How was your loyalty? How can you How would that be how what Oh Ha see how when and why feeling Latina and alima Let me have a look at what you either have an album, Dean and last month I made Salah to be one of the most important signs of men. And we know that
the prophets of Salaam said Abdullah the bane of our being masala, the covenant the agreement between us and them any human being a Salah fellow
tilaka half a cup of a person who leaves Salah stops observing Salah then he has fallen into disbelief.
Very serious issue.
Oliver was he one of the scholars and he said, Well, I'm here to tell him that he What does the grocery one major I mean in the history of Latin Uh, well I mean assala The first thing or the main obligation that Allah made after tawheed after believing in Allah is Salah.
It shows the most important acts of worship.
And Allah subhanaw taala said tomaselli sarangkot Allahu de Moosa in any and Allahu La Ilaha Illa NFS Bodine Akina sala de Vickery, a Lhasa tomaselli salam, it is me Allah
no one has the right to be worshipped but me so worship Me and establish the prayer for my remembrance. That's the first thing Allah commanded Mussolini's Salah with a solid to what to heat the relationship between salah and to hate oneness of Allah. Lisa flew the LM informalities Sala for he arms with a battle Holly Sati Lila, why No, there is no fruit in life that is sweeter than the fruit of Salah, because it is a symbol of towhead Salah is the symbol and manifestation of the hate. What he did you see what the NRC he and it embodies and explains the reality of the hate. So Salah is a physical and verbal manifestation of belief, a real belief in Allah subhanaw taala for he at
that bill Neff siendo he had in LA so in the self wants to express its worship to Allah and His love for Allah Salah is the way to do it. So Allah is the way to do it. Fatah Bella Roshi Allah berry he has so you see how the soul is running towards Allah in Salah fiesta de sola. The acid is already here I've had the agenda yet, so you'll find the soul expressing itself in Salah in the best of shapes. The Delica Canada Salatu mo the Dean was the whole machine This is why Salah is the main pillar in Islam. What he said was a bit higher. It is the biggest door to goodness, human goodness you want reward from Allah you will find it in Salah. You want you know self cultivation, you want
to grow your Eman you will find it in salah
and Mahabharata Allah select him in other means if I mean so observing the prayer is one of the main descriptions of the believers. What your karma to salata Allah what he has them Oh, Sophia Helen, amen. Establishing the prayer is the main description of the believers, if he or in one who selected him the man because it is the title of their connection to Allah subhanho wa Taala the current level Mohammed has no meaning at the embassy Allah, Allah, Allah when he described the believers and the good things about them, he started with the Salah. So he said that after the honeymoon Allah Dena home Thea Salatin harsh on the believers are successful. And the first description Allah says Allah
Dena home fear Salatu him harshly on the other ones who are who have for sure and there's a lot
of solidarity. So Islamic Salah is the parameter or is the gauge of your Eman
Salah is the gauge is the is the accurate gauge or indicator of the level of your email. celestial Abdi lmft either Islamic healing now was the slamming Healy Umbra, Salah is one of the clearest signs of your belief and submission to Allah.
Nepal Abdul Mamiya Madoka cola Amanda am narrated from him from a measurement, his statement in Omaha boomin and Islamic Allah Padre Hughley, Minnesota, your share of Islam, your share of Islam is proportionate to your share in Salah.
That means the quality of your Salah and the amount of your Salah will show how much Islam you have.
As simple as that. You want to know how much Islam you have, how much demand you have, look at your solar
in terms of quality, is it good? The better the quality of your Salah the higher your Eman is the more you pray
the more Eman you actually have. As simple as that. There's no no tricks around it. It's so simple.
So a minute pay him says fair enough. Sokka Abdullah have not been says so know yourself. What Adam and hubback I mean Islam, Islam in depth because we have the Camino de la vaca in Dec you want to know how much you share of Islam is how much Islam you have. Look at how much you value the prayer. As much as you value the prayer This is how much Islam you have whatever until Allah azzawajal level of control in Islam and that can be careful. Should you return to Allah
When you have little or no value for Islam in your heart
for in other Islamic countries philosophy, so the value of Islam in your heart is identical to the value of Salah in your heart. As simple as that.
The Delica Kanata Salatu mehak wildside have been huami Zanna Wallace satechi so he's saying here the Salah is the real test for your Eman. There is no better taste test or more accurate test for your Eman
better than Salah. Salah is the best test and this is why I call it the Allahu anhu who said in morikami in the US Allah the Most important of your affairs to me is Salah. Man Have you ever heard half of it half of it half of Medina. So whoever observes it and maintains it, then he has preserved his religion. Woman by Yahuwah masiva via whoever lets go of the prayer he doesn't observe it. Then he has wasted the rest of the religion as well.
solid solid to delhi delhi don't have better luck Delaroche man, Salah is the real proof that you actually love Allah subhana wa Tada. While an unnecessary amount of money at work to heat the lead on Allah wa t lb. He
says here, the way you use your time, how you use your time shows exactly the direction of your heart.
Where is your heart going? How you use your time that shows exactly where your heart is going. So he says for kulu Mohammed bin Yes, if you're a felon, a young woman walk to him and when you were female, you're the person who loves love something or love someone. They are so keen to invest their time in what they love. And with the one they love.
Where your house will enter corner how the law that is an old party law William boulby for kobu how they're on fee.
So he says the person who loves they put their time where they where they love and with the person they love. And they make sure that this time they spend with the one they love is the best of time. So they are present. They are there so not they're not just present with their buddy, but they present with their heart and their mind.
So he says we'll let you hit Bula Tara who you bukoba our T foo Phoebe Naima Mola Well, yes, and takuna have he hired Artie. So the one who loves a lot. He loves to spend his time standing before Allah in Salah.
So the person loves a lot they love to stand in the presence of Allah and Salah. And they strive to make these times these moments of solid the best time in their day
for your corner cabinet holders, so they are fully present in these moments. Where Upolu will be he will happily he will clearly however, see so their heart and their mind and their soul are all present. In this moment. We're happy to hear a limited amount and this is a sign of belief and faith funboard ella worktext so look at your time check your time. A Natasha who are female faculty, where do you put your time? Where do you spend your time? What do you tend to spend your time her the lady you want to be okay and Happy Friday meant to him? This is the indicator that tells you truly who you love. So where do you put your time? What do you invested in that tells you who you truly love.
So we might be making claims. I love this I love Allah I love you when you love a person who say oh I love this I love you and I and I value you right? But if you don't strive to spend time with that person, these are just you know claims. These are just claims when you love someone you want to spend time with them. When you love something you love to enjoy, you love to engage in it and spend time in it. That's a reality you cannot avoid but if you casually spend time with someone you don't have so much stuff for them. You don't have so much love for them. So he says someone can Mr. Bonilla for in Nikita Allahu esrd akuna Jean Luc t Phil kotoba was the one who truly loves Allah,
you will find this person striving to find opportunities to come closer to Allah and do things that Allah loves. woman can and more heavenly dunya but who loves this dunya this life tecido who Yes, Rafi and Jacobi I'd really love to hear female Bashar ottima You're

People who love watching, you know, football, soccer and basketball, you find these people because they love these sports, they're going to put their time watching these and maybe playing them right. People who love reading and education you will find that they put their time in what they love. So how you spend your time and where you invest your time shows you exactly what your heart really loves. Period there's no joke about it you know, so such straightforward and such so clear. It's as simple as that.
A solid two essential caboodle a man, Salah is the foundation or the condition for other actions to be accepted. What Willie mechanics is selected in the law, he has his origin Allah subhanahu kaballah man in a big Allah to Allah. Because Salah is very important for Allah, then Allah made it a prerequisite and a condition for the acceptance of all other actions. From an era that era Maryhill, Kabbalah, and Allah be welcoming a big half Allah here and you were gi motto, Allah so if someone wants a lot except their deeds, they should make sure and put their attention that their Salah is actually in good shape. If your Salah is in good shape, the rest of your actions will be
accepted. But if the Salah is not in good shape, you will be in trouble.
The Guru Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah messages on Salaam says a woman who has Abu Dhabi yo malpighia masala The first thing the person will be questioned about on the Day of Judgment is a Salah the prayer for in Salah hats Allah has eliminated the Salah is good and sound the rest of the actions will be okay will be accepted would be sound. Were infested that faster the cycle a minute but if the Salah is not valid, it's not prayed well
and it's corrupt,
then the rest of the actions will also be corrupted.
So someone might be doing a lot of good actions, but if the Salah is not in good shape, these actions will not be accepted.
As simple as that this hadith is authentic.
Wa sallahu Wa Salatu Jacobi Tamati ha well, Muhammad Ali so how would you guarantee that your Salah is actually in good shape is valid equal to b comma t how by establishing it so you actually pray you physically pray when you have poverty and observing it and it's times you pray? The Salah is not like a prayer sir but I don't pray the whole night you pray all the silhouettes, what you call it ha ha ha and that you establish its conditions so you pray well physically and verbally.
Omar ottima Annie Havas availa T will have an observing the external aspects of the salah and the inner aspects of Salah. What are the inner aspects you focus
feeling the connection to Allah subhanaw taala during the Salah. This is what these are the things that makes Allah accepted because if you pray only physically,
Allah knows how much you're getting from your Salah. Allah knows
a solid select to general logical Salah is paradise on earth. Salah is paradise on earth. Column lupien says a Salah to cold water Nima had been the ones who love Allah Salah is like a garden for them is like a garden for them. Well at the to Ottawa Hill mohideen the people have to heat they will find so much sweetness and Sala what was standard Aberdeen for the worshipers. Salah is the best place is the best place with Mr. Otto fuson Harsha in Salah is also the best fruit of cashew and connection to Allah.
Then when national facilitators our tuna our metalphoto people in Salah are different levels, different levels, feminine hormone ronamoon woman hormones RM some people they get so many good things from salah and some people are actually making salah and getting since
minimal varnam woman who Muharram some people will be praying and getting rewards. Some people would be praying but getting since How is this
experience what well he semmen Kanata Salatu will be under
Hyatt Allahu Allah Hatton. Powhatan de Jolla and the husband he was a heavenly heavenly he wasn't me what matters and who.
When I was he came and he called me he was
he was what's a cliff Allahu alayhi salatu Allah Harada
so he says the person who finds sweetness
For him, Salah is the spring of his heart, and it brings life to his existence. And it removes his pains and his worries. And he comes to it at the times of hardship, he finds this a lot as the safe resort and the safe haven during the difficult times. This person is not like the person who sees the prayer as a burden that he just wants to get rid of.
And he finds the Salah more of a constraint upon him.
And then it is.
Yeah, so he says basically, for the second person for the latter, it is a burden. And it's a huge obligation. But for the first one, the one who loves it is actually an act of elevation and transcendence. These are the ones that will pay him.
So this is why the scholars just elaborate on this. Some scholars said the person who prays only with their body and they thinking about other things in Salah. Some of those people might be sinning. Why? Because you are standing in the Presence of Allah and the prophet SAW Selim says, either calm and do your solidly or with a comma had to confess Allah for in Allah Haryana, Cebu who de Bella Abbe de Madame el tivitz when you stand up in Salah, Allah subhanaw taala erects his noble face in front of you. And so Allah
so Allah faces you in Salah in a way that befits His Majesty, we cannot understand this with our minds, but our hearts know that
unless you turn away from Allah,
unless you turn away from Allah. So imagine you're standing in Allah's presence, Allah is paying attention to you. And you are thinking of someone else.
If I'm having a conversation with you, a chat we chatting together, I'm talking to you from my hearts. Or you're talking to me, and your mind is somewhere else. And I can see the signs. Isn't that disrespectful?
I would feel offended. I'm talking to you and you're not even there. Why? Because your mind is with someone else over their husbands. Try this with your wife, she's talking to you.
And you're thinking of something, something else? And she tells you you're not with me. So no, I just thought of something. Believe me, she won't talk to you for two or three days. Right? Why? Because it's offensive. It's offensive. I'm talking to you. You're talking to me. But you're not paying attention Your mind is you would rather be with someone else. So you are standing in a less presence, but you'd rather be with someone else. See how rude that is. So that's why we these people, the scholars said some of these people might actually be sinning because they pray because they just have to pray.
But they don't see it as a good investment. Don't even give any value to it. Don't even feel that they are in the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala so it's very dangerous. It's very dangerous.
a salon owner on film called The white shark on film, he Sala brings light into the heart and it brings beauty to the face. Brings beauty to the face How?
De Lille has an enormous Li Rahim Allah mbarara Mr. Medina believe him in us and in NASA. We'll do our Motorhead GD and aberlady NASA NASA
has an embassy was asked. Someone asked him, he said, Why do the people who pray at night? Why do they have the most beautiful illuminated faces? There's light in their faces. Why? He says the unknown Hello burwash man for Alberta homie Nori. He said because they stood in the Presence of Allah alone. So Allah gave him some of his lights.
Allah gave them a light from him. So their faces illuminated
for Salah to turn modal button button, you have a healer who will heya Sala brings about life to your inner state and to your outer state external state for usually who would you who western Iraq elbow so the heart the face enlightens and the heart is full of light. Carla said he Doman Colorado say yep Rahim Allah Saddam Hussein one of the tabs again he says in rajulio Saliba Lail. A man prays at nights for la houfy would he know ah, so Allah brings light onto his face. Because he prayed at night. You hit boo and he couldn't Muslim every Muslim who sees him he likes him.
That's because of Salah at night
manlam era when someone meets him and he sees him for the first time for your call, Nila Rajan, someone sees him for the first time he says, Well, I love this person. I feel I know him. I think he's so close to me, but that's the first time I see him. Why is this because of this Salah when someone prays from the heart for our last panel to add
I just want to move since we don't have so much time
to some of he gives here, six secrets to finding horseshoe and Sala six secrets that will help you find closure. And so I mentioned two of them in my code, but today
I'm going to read something in Arabic and summarize it because it's beautiful and important. He says about Salah how people can find horseshoe and Salah he says it's not easy. It's not easy. And that was done purpose on purpose. It's not meant to be easy. But I'm going to read the Arabic a little bit then summarize it in English for the Arabs here just to get a taste as well have it those ones done Arabic. Waka jurickson nathu la he an akula Allah kado who work Allah Thurman who wapa but tomato Who? Allahu Allah who marry me. Why fabu we hold women? How will he were still he's saying, the way Allah creates his creation is that whatever is valuable, whatever is precious, a lot of them
make it easily accessible.
Allah protects it. So you will find treasures and gold usually hidden and buried right?
fruits, you will not find fruits being exposed like this, you have to peel them off. Why? Because this kind of skin protects them protects them. Usually when people have treasures, they don't expose them and put them in a visible place. Right? They hide them precious things. that's a that's a that's a general rule universal rule. Whatever is precious is usually hidden. He will explain why. He says well, how did his son tell our happy family? Well, surely he will Java has
this rule you will find it in fruits, things are not easily. And even the sweetest fruits By the way, the sweetest some of the sweetest fruits are not the easiest to grow. And some of the sweetest fruits, especially the exotic ones, tropical fruits are actually very hard to get through. So even their skin is spiky the skin is spiky so you have to go through so much pain to get that. So, so you will find this kind of rule in in the fruits and you will find it with golden silver and precious stones were tough enough it is in Africa it will loom and even in important sciences. And knowledge is not easily accessible. You have to work your way through a lot of studying and work to get to the
most precious pieces of knowledge and understanding. So if it's given to you easily you will not appreciate it you will not even know how to use it. You have to go through that. You know through this skin, you have to go through a journey. So it says for in anfis ilumi yoruba ob NFC and the akun Effie Mata now what do you call the motor? How within console Oh motor elephant module, he says the precious knowledge it does not give itself easily it does not yield itself easily to lazy people or to hasty people it does not.
It does not yield itself. Precious knowledge does not offer itself. So if you are hasty you want to get it overnight or give me the most important thing about knowledge. I want to learn it overnight you cannot get it knowledge will not yield itself to you. You will misunderstand it.
As you know as simple as any knowledge if you try to learn knowledge overnight, you will misunderstand it, you will misconstrue it, you will not figure it out Why? Because knowledge grows with time, with comprehension with hard work and over and over and over again until your mind you know finds its way around it then it finds the secrets. So knowledge takes all of this work to really figure it out so you can get the best type of knowledge someone offers it to you. You cannot utilize it. You have to go through a journey.
Okay, so it does not yield itself to someone who's hasty. And it does not yield itself to someone who's lazy. Who is not seeking for it. It doesn't. So, Bella boop demin holebas Mr. illume What wg FEMA Derrida watier aka huobi howard stern he has the poliana versity as minhwa that a journal article
Memorial winnemucca Dam That's beautiful. He says
there is there is no other way bots to delve into the knowledge into studying, delve into studying and taking it slowly one step at a time gradually, incrementally you learn one level after the other after the other after the other, and then you will start breaking through the screens and the levels. Through then after so much work and hard work and understanding and struggling to understand and figure out and after remaining loyal to the knowledge and to studying then all of a sudden the precious knowledge and understanding will start to yield itself to you
start to offer itself to you after all of this hard work. And he says well how can a move and facility by dirty work allow her to see UC Luba ha ha ha ha ha widely for Canada How is Adobe certainly here in lemon soda cars movie and you deema Maha we have tequila daraja he says the same thing applies to the most precious act of worship which is Salah you cannot find sweetness in it you cannot find her shoe in it. You cannot find the beauty of salah and the fruits of Salah unless you do what unless

So he's a famous lover, lover of what level of Salah
Well, are you gonna be coming through hubiera and no one can truly give you the best prescription than someone who's been through that experience. So take it from an expert.
And Mr. Holloway, the first key he's saying it's the key of gratitude.
What does that mean? He says, well, who had the unlimited natadola he suparna Hakuna who Acoma houfy? Heather McCollum, what a hula hula who were soccer hooligans Allah yummy lb What better and he had met a fellow Allah Subhana. Whom I can assure you, I mean, Derek Can I can also have it we don't have a BS en la sala mokulua, la isla Lima, Dana, one letter, so de la Selena, basically, that you should witness in your heart and experience fully. That the Salah is a gift from Allah a blessing from Allah to you.
I said in the hotbar, I don't see that when you are performing your Salah that you are on the giving end, you are on the receiving end, you're not offering a lot of fever. You're not giving a lot of fever. By the way, when you make Salah. Not, it's a law that is giving you a favor, that he allowed you to pray. So it's the other way around. So you see yourself as receiving this on the that you have nothing to brag about, nothing to feel good about.
But you just have to be thankful that so you see that it is Allah Subhana Allah who brought you to this position allowed you to pray, and he has enabled you to perform this. He says had it not been for Allah and had not chosen you for this, you would not be praying. So it's a last panel to Allah that gave you this gift of Salah, just as the companions used to say in the presence of the prophets of Salaam had it not been for Allah, we would not have been guided, we would not have given charity and we would not have prayed. So they say thank you Allah for all of these blessings. So when they do something they see it's Allah doing them a favor, Subhan Allah. Then he says, a lot of Montana
says sort of fragility and well known alikhan Islamic law terminology Islamic umbrella.
A man in control.
You know, some of the Arabs came to the Prophet Solomon. They said, Oh, we are Muslims. We do this and we do that and we perform this and we perform that so they feel good about themselves, this self righteousness, and they have done something for Allah. Allah, Allah sent to the prophets of Allah and tell them you know, don't count your blessings on me if you are following Islam.
There is no blessings there. You're not offering me anything. He says, Belinda, who yamano Allah come it's Allah. It's Alan's gift to you that you are actually have believed or have accepted a man if you are truthful.
So don't see yourself ever offering a lot something when you believe or when you do something good. Or when you pray for that matter. Don't see yourself in that at all. You forget yourself completely. The only way you see yourself is that you are actually getting a blessing from Allah, that Allah made you a Muslim that Allah inspired you to pray that Allah designed the prayer for you that Allah allowed you to come and
Stand in his presence. And Allah accepts the prayer from you and Allah pays attention as you are praying. And Allah rewards you for the prayer. So everything is from Allah,
everything, even your ability, your intention, your willingness to make Salah is not even from you, it's from Allah.
So basically, basically, you have nothing to offer, it's a last minute and so once you see this, your heart will melt in humbleness before Allah, because you know, you can't thank Allah enough.
So what that does, it takes away your ego and Salah so you don't feel good about yourself. I'm making Salah, but you feel all this blessing, Oh Allah, I thank you for this blessing. I feel grateful, I feel humbled, because you are allowing me to do all of this, and you are inspiring me. And you have chosen me to be someone who prays and you have guided me to it. And you are giving me the energy and the body to perform it and the heart to be present in it. So I thank you. I want to express my gratitude in this moment and Salah, so I am praying in thankfulness. I want to express my thankfulness. I channeled that fact for thankfulness through my performance of Salah that's the
point here. So that's the first key.
He says, one wish I had the two minute Illa he had an macom tune zero called Buffy mahkamah Shakur. He says,
observing that the Salah is a blessing from Allah to you. It's not something that you're offering a lot. It's a blessing from Allah to you. He says it allows the heart to, to to to arrive at the station of thankfulness and gratitude.
That realization takes you heart into a station of the heart that is called thankfulness. And he says woman Zilla to shoukry tester regional lbs Anima female Oh Buddha and the station of thankfulness and Schuchat, it brings the best from the heart.
So the heart gives its best when it you know enters that state of Chicago and thankfulness to Allah subhanaw taala for in other words is shook to Henry Cofield lb and Bella maknoon it
because sugar the state of thankfulness. It brings about the best juices from the hearts. It brings from the heart the most noble parts of it the most noble aspects of it. Okay. The second key
Mashhad will floss, the key of sincerity, he says we're in your corner herminia La Hoya de la hora de la la batalla abdillah when I had better hula
basically sincerity means that what drives you What drives you to pray?
Okay, what pushes you to pray
is your love and you're longing for Allah. That's what a class is.
So basically, you are praying in love, because you feel so much love for Allah. You want to express that love, the best way is Salah.
It's the most expressive way to express your love for Allah naturally by Fatah. So that's why Salah is very poor. So that's what class means. Some people think a class or I'm going to do it for Allah, it's not a mental thing,
if last comes from love. So he's saying that what drives you to make this prayer is your love for Allah, your love for Allah and the seeking and the eagerness to get Allah's pleasure that Allah is pleased with you. So you want to get this by any means and the best way to actually do this as the prayer.
So you are praying in expression of your love for Allah and you're longing to him.
That's it. That's what it means.
He's saying well how the UK bottle assata salah and this is the biggest secret of Salah.
This is the biggest secret consola
Okay, Bill, who was your role higher. This is the secret of life. The secret of life. Woman fair to hold a philosopher who is the one who doesn't get floss, as we said that comes from love for Allah. He has missed every good. That said he's missed everything. Every goodness, he has missed every goodness.
the third key. So we have two keys. The first one is gratitude.
You praying gratitude. The second one is that you pray in love, which is sincerity. The third is Mashhad Teixeira.
This is basically the key of falling short,
falling short, what does it mean? It means when you are praying, you have a realization that even if I offer my best prayer, and I put I physically I do the prayer well, and mentally I put my focus and my I put my heart completely in the salon I experienced the highest level of for sure, I still fail to give Allah his rights.
I can't give a lot he deserves. You can put it this way, your best is not enough for Allah. Allah deserves more.
Even if you offer your best Salah ever.
Allah still deserves far better and far more.
This is this should not make you fall in despair. But basically it's a realization that Allah is far greater than whatever I can offer. So my best is never enough. So what does this help you do? That helps you humble yourself
humble and never see that you will paid a lot off.
What does this give you? What else does it give you?
It actually it becomes a motivation for you to even do better. So I gave my best or I had my best seller ever in my life. Now, my next Salah I'll make sure it's even better than the masala before and so on and so forth. And I know I will never give allies right. But as long as I die striving that's my journey. And that's my struggle.
So these are very powerful keys by the way a few now, to make it practical. Once you start prayer just as the mother is making the karma, try to put these in your mind 1111 of them at a time one key at a time. So try with
okay gratitude, say in this Salah. I'm going to live this allow experience the salon in the feeling that
this Salah is a blessing from Allah, and everything about it is a blessing from Allah. And I just want to pray in thankfulness. I want to show a law that I'm really thankful and I appreciate this beautiful gift of Salah, this beautiful miracle. I want to show love, I am thankful so I'm going to appreciate it and I'm going to pray this Salah in this spirit and see how your Salah will be gonna have a different quality of your Salah, very powerful.
Another salasi I'm going to do this Salah in love for Allah. So Allah I love you. I want to go back to you on the day of judgment and be close to you and live my life there in general be able to see your face and converse with you I just want to be close to you. That's what I want. And because of that love and I'm going to express that love by making the salad so I'm going to pray the Salah in love for you or a lot I want you to feel the love and see how you this Salah is going to be different as
a third Salah what you can make is basically see see the greatness of Allah that no matter how good my Salah is, I will never be able to give Allah what he deserves.
So Allah, our humble myself before you so you pray this, this third Salah, let's say in this kind of spirit, or Allah, offering my best, that's the best that I can in this moment.
So please accept it from me. You deserve far better, but accept it from me. And I know that I will never be able to give you your right or to match what you truly deserve.
And feel his blessing that even though you're not giving a lot he deserves he still accepts the prayer from you.
Let's move on to the fourth key.
Mr. Robert Misha, does anyone know?
What a new new federal law called the hula heafy
ways to free her Jota houfy Javi de la well Jimmy Appleby he he was a party
actually hava here on what about
measures Cisco knows this is basically
to do your Salah in truthfulness. How can we put this in English put your heart in the Salah.
Put your heart in this Salah.
the best Salah of your life now.
Pray the best Salah in your life. Now basically, leave no effort, leave nothing you can do except that you invested in Salah to make a masterpiece and offer it to Allah Spanner to iron out in the salon that you are praying. That's basically means putting your heart in
Put your heart and soul in the Salah. Then he because he says that you strive to perform the Salah as best as possible in all parameters external like physical and inner in terms of the experience of your heart so your presence and you are experiencing spiritually.
Okay, the fifth key and Mr. Harness, mesh Abdulmutallab, it will. Okay, this is the physical vessel of Sala. Basically, following the prophet SAW Selim and Sala that means you learn the Salah how the prophet SAW Selim prayed it, okay the manner of prayer, and you keep to it. So you pray as the Prophet solemn creed physically, that's the physical vessel.
And that vessel is very conducive, and helpful for you to experience so lawfully.
That's the fifth, the sixth and the last one
is a lesson
and so on was the lesson is basically you reach a point where you pray your Salah, feeling in your heart, the Presence of Allah.
And that's what he said and tabooed Allah, can you worship Allah, as if you see him? You are so aware and mindful of Allah and connected to Allah. Okay? That you get to a state where as if you are actually seeing a last panel Tada, you're so aware of Allah, as if you see him.
As if Allah is visible to you, that's what it means. When something is visible to you, you cannot ignore it right? You cannot forget about it, you cannot grow heedless.
So you are so aware of Allah and connected to Allah and conscious of Allah to an extent as if you're actually seeing him.
You get to that state of certainty with Allah.
So that basically when you pray,
you feel Allah is observing you. You in your heart, in your heart, you see Allah not with your eyes, okay? So that's not a vision. That's an experience of the heart. You're so conscious of Allah in your heart.
That's the most difficult and that's the highest. And the more you work on the other five
the easier this becomes, this is more of the icing on the on the cake. That comes after the hard work is why Santa is the highest level in the deen. It comes with so much work. So much dedication, so much connection to Allah subhanho wa Taala
Okay, so I think that's enough, inshallah, any questions,
who found something
resonated with them something they actually did? What did you find that was something that stuck in your head? Okay, that's something that I'm gonna try.
Know, because it's because building a career and doing all those things, and being sincere.
You know, how do you how do you achieve what you say? And you know, that was the heart.
So what do I need to do to get to where I need to be?
As simple as that, when you come to the prayer, okay? leave the world behind.
Okay? It's only Allah and you.
And once you do the Salah, just be mindful of Allah, that you are now standing in the Presence of Allah and Allah is observing you.
And he's listening to you and he sees you. If you pray in that spirit, slowly, slowly, you're going to find yourself getting into these issues.
That's it. Simple as that.
We could understand
his level of understanding
how do we can make that
the source in the brand or in
I'm just trying to think of something. Okay. Basically the question is, Satan received said that some people
who pray at night and they pray to Allah SubhanAllah. Sincerely, there's light on the face as a gift from our last panel data. So where do we find something like this, or something about this in the columns and the person and there's a couple of ahaadeeth from the process and then what he says, There are people that when you see them, they remind you of Allah.
There are people and these are righteous people. When you see them, you just remember our last panel
in the sense their state and how they are either their face because they have so much love for Allah subhanaw taala you just realize it when you see them,
remind you of Allah, they remind you of righteousness.
So that's it man either at the color Kabila
and another head if there are people that when you hear the recitation when either submit who you are on the khardungla some people you hear the recitation of the Quran, you just remember our last man attack.
But that doesn't have to be directly like, not everything, like, Oh, where's the proof for this and local and the sooner was the proof for this. There are things that are logical and taken from the Quran the sooner so for example, Can't you tell?
at a basic level, if someone is honest and righteous?
And there are exceptions, some people can really fool others. Yeah, they can pretend. But for most people, if someone is dodgy, and they've done a lot of bad things in their life, most likely you're going to have a feeling towards them. We call it a sixth sense, right? Or intuition. That's just a common human experience.
I understand what
you just wanted the connection to the longest.
Somebody when I was growing up
to me, I never seen it. Like that person. so far.
Somehow Nola, actually, as you're talking now, I just remembered something even worse when he makes the CEO of Sema and he will do him in a suit
valleca methylome veto. Okay.
if I told Mohammed, Mohammed, Mohammed?
So such? Yes, so
basically, about the companions of the Prophet ilmc Mountains, he will do him. I mean, as a sujood. The sign is on the face because of their sudduth. Some of them are serious. They said, this is basically that dark spot here from some people who pray excessively, even our best says no, he says that the light on the face of the people who makes it good for Allah is the brightness on their face.
That's even adverse. So that's the connection to the Quran, CML and you will hear him in a third suit. So there's sine of securities on the face.
So I mean, I bass, who's among the most knowledgeable of the Quran basically says that's the light on their face because of their subdued for Allah. subhanaw taala.
Which is the person
he used to
deal mostly with kids.
Most of the time, when there are kids, he used to play with kids, but with adults, not that much.
He used to be, I don't know. I have to see him as he did now.
I was trying to I have to make an inspection to be able to
to be able to give an answer. Well, hello, Adam. I don't really know.
A lot. Well, yeah.
No questions. Okay. Yes.
this means that
the person is disbelieves.
Okay, the issue of the one who doesn't pray. That's a big debate among scholars. So a person who says Salah is not an obligation
is none of Muslim non Muslim? Okay, that's done except for small, very limited cases. Okay. But generally speaking, someone who denies the obligation of Salah is not considered to be Muslim. Now we're talking about someone who doesn't pray. Just because he doesn't feel like it all feels lazy, right? he's just he's not motivated to do it. That's where the debate of the scholars has been. Is he really truly a Kaffir? Or is the action of not making sulla is Cofer, but the person is not necessarily Catholic, some big issue of debate. I personally lean towards that. He's not necessarily Catholic. He's not necessarily a Catholic. But the scholar said this person is on the verge of
because truly, like it's unimaginable, someone that truly loves Allah is connected to Allah, and they find it hard to pray and they know that Salah is obligatory it's really hard to experience this, but can for me, can you make someone who doesn't pray you make fun of him? I find this such a far fetched kind of place to be in. Yeah.
Yeah. Okay, let's take one last question. Go ahead.
closing their eyes, okay.
Okay, basically saying some people find it easy to have a show if they close their eyes and Salah.
Now the prophets prayer was described in detail, there's nothing about closing the eyes.
So it seems the professor did not close his eyes and Salah It seems the case. And there are some remote indications how, because for example, you have the problem says in the Hadith, if you're in salah and you see a scorpion, kill it.
Your insula, so basically cut off your Salah, leave it, kill that Scorpion and complete then complete your Salah. You can't see a scorpion unless your eyes are open and Salah, right? So that's a remote indication, that's remote indication. So we say ideally, you shouldn't, you shouldn't Close your eyes. But this course also also I have debated. Some of them said said it's not a big issue, but also the prophets. I send them when he prayed. He kept his eyesight when he was standing on the place of Institute the spot where he put his forehead.
So that's also important. So some scholars say you should not close your eyes at all. You're not allowed to close your eyes. Some scholars said it's not a big issue. Some scholars said it's okay. Like amendment never. We said if you can only find horseshoe if you close your eyes do it.
But some other scholars say no lecture Mm hmm. Bears says no, no, you can't close your eyes, you should not close your eyes and Salah.
So and there are scholars in between. So what I would say at least in the five daily prayers, obligatory prayers, try to keep your eyes open. You're doing something that's much easier, as much as you want to close them. And so you feel a bit more for sure. That's easier but in the obligatory salon I would prefer not to I would prefer not to but do I go to the extent that I say it's haram? I don't take that stance personally.
On one side on the left on the right, yeah.
Okay, the professor was praying in his house, his room. So she had like us a curtain or something right, a piece of cloth that was covering like the the the wardrobe
and it had some shapes in it. So the prophecies are what does he do? He He prayed as he was praying Salah, so he moved towards it and he ripped it. And then he completed his Salah, his Salah, he did not even close his eyes.
So I would say
yeah, because it was distracting him, right? Yeah, so I don't know you want to do but believe me if you are really focused on salaat, the more engaged you would actually distractions would be less intrusive. Okay. Play Allah. Allah Allah, Allah. Allah Allah, Muhammad wa sahbihi wa sallam
