Okay, he said
John Lord This week we will deal with the chapter bourbon Phillips decide if Labour had a chapter on
being moderate in worship being moderate in worship from the other side of him
first I want to
we can't involve the sisters here. So I'm gonna just take the voice of the brothers. So I'm planning to start a new series. So we have two options. We have two options to start a new series.
Kitab mostly for to Salah in the visa Salam, the description of the prophets prayer by Sheikh Mohammed Nasser, Al Burnie can go over the book. Read the text. So hundreds the book has been translated
long ago in English so we can read the text and comments and establish the rulings and later on the end of the class if there are any questions, we can answer them. So there's one option
might be this year.
We so probably six years ago, we were doing this era we stopped in the middle and it was going well. So who would go for the book of a Salah the description of the prophets prayer. So the sisters have to forgive me I can't take the vote so we're gonna depend on the brothers votes. So if you vote for Kitab Josefa to Salah the book of the description of the prophets awesomes prayer in detail as if you see it. Okay, so describes the prophets prayer from authentic hadith. We're going to take it step by step in detail. So if you vote for this, put your hand up where I can see it.
Okay, who can help me help? Can you count the the hands because seems to be a close call. Please keep your hand up. Just one hand up not to
count how many
2020 Okay. Oh would go for the Sierra.
you can't vote for both. You can have to vote for one.
That was 2222 23
Five Sierra winds. Sierra winds, Sierra winds. Sunshine Inshallah, if we have some time later on after zero we will go we'll we'll put the book of Salah for vote again. But today inshallah we'll deal with this chapter bourbon Phillips decide if you're a bad call letter IRA. Poor man Zelina Lee Cal Khurana. Ritesh.
This is the beginning of solo pa Allah Anna. And by the way a ba ba is not the name of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Baha is not the name of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam BA is? Letters to letters just like Alif Lam Meem
dislike Alif Lam Meem pa two letter star. And so it's not the name of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam you're seeing is not the name of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam it's two letters. Yeah. And seen. Yeah. And seen. So keep this in mind, Bahama and Zelina Aliko Purana de Tishkoff we did not also talking about himself. We did not send down the Quran upon you for you to find hardship and difficulty as I'm in that way.
So we did not send down the Quran upon you for you to find misery and hardship.
So the Quran was not sent down to me things to make life hard for us or to make worship a burden on us. This is not the point behind legislation. It's not an Allah subhanaw taala says another version sort of Bacara you read Allah will become a looser whether you read OB Comala Rasul Allah whence ease
You, Allah doesn't want hardship and difficulty. So Allah doesn't want to put us in hardship. Allah doesn't want to place any burden or Allah doesn't want to overburden us. Allah wants is for us. So this is why one of the main principles in Islam of the film the whole body of Islamic jurisprudence, one of the main principles is a
Sula TCM deal us from Islam is ease Islam is all about ease. This way you have a lot of concessions you have a lot of exemptions. You have a lot of these what we call a rasa as well we have a lot of ways out in Islam within itself.
There are Hadith now and Anisha total the Allahu Allah and maybe your son Allahu Allah He was Solana the holler Allah you were in the hammer. Call. Men heavy, all 34 learner tune to the column insalata called Emma Ali convener total your own fellow Hola Hola, Emma Lulu who had Emmylou what can I have boo Dini la Hema da woman i Li my dad when I saw him who and he looked upon and he was Kelly Mattoon a hen was a young woman. And Lulu Isla taught with a Weber who uncom all the way. Mera Kaam wa Mellotron manly heterotrimer LUFA truco fimbriata Kommentar huduma to the porn at the one alley, the adorned with a wobble hula comb, waffle blue and a comb. This hadith is collected by the Bukhari and
Muslim reported by Aisha Radi Allahu Allah, the messenger Sanlam entered her house, the house of Allah which is the prophets house, but her specific chamber. So he enters the house, and she had a friend, a female friend who was with her.
So later on the Prophet SAW Salem asks, Aisha who's this, Who's this woman, he probably is the first time the Prophet Salam saw her. So she says, she is so and so. And then I actually started to mention how this woman prays so much. She does a lot of Salon. She does a lot of Salon she plays she prays a lot, a lot of silhouettes, she makes a lot of silhouette. So when she mentioned this to the professor's I'm and you can see from the context, from the context, it shows that Aisha was proud of this woman of her friend that she actually prays a lot.
What is the process of Salam say
it's a word to show dislike. It's a word to show dislike. And it's a word to show disapproval.
That definitely came as a surprise to actually Allahu Allah. The Prophet of Islam says Alikum Bina totally own hold on to what you are able to do and sustain.
Don't push yourself over your limit. Don't don't go into excess when it comes to worship.
So they can be my totally own for Allah, helium and Lulu who had terminal. So he's saying here basically as imam in no way explains the statement, he says that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will reward you for your deeds, Allah will reward you for your deeds. So when you do your deeds, do them with enthusiasm when you have energy. But don't push yourself beyond that when you go to access. Because when you do this, it shows that you have become
your worship doesn't have any meaning doesn't give you any sense. Any meaning you you become a little bit bored of the prayer, you push yourself into it. So the problem says, if you get into this sense of boredom, from salah, then Allah will treat you the same and that means the reward will be less.
So this is what you might have no expense. He says, Allah will reward you for as long as you pray with your heart being there with your energy being there with heart with your energy being at a high level.
he says what can I have? moodini ie, my Dawa Masahito honey, the aspects of the deen of Islam that the prophets of salaam loves the most or loved the most. Were the things that a person could do consistently and maintain. Now you do another you push yourself and then you can't sustain this so you change your ways. The President didn't like this is why another Hadith in Bukhari actually Allah Anna, she said about the actions of the Prophet SAW Salem can and they will who Diem can ama loop Dima, the actions of the prophets of salaam were consistent. If he started something he would keep doing it. It's not that anyone like one month he would do something then for three months he
couldn't keep it up so he would leave it. Now the province of Salem would maintain his actions and his wife
another Hadith about the prophets of salaam Khanna, either Aneela Annalen is better who the prophets will serve them. If he initiated an action, he would sustain it, he would keep it. So pray to rock out dam, Alain, it's not that I would make it for a week, then give it up because I can't keep keep up with that. They maybe two months later, I get you know, excited again, I get the hype again. So I'm gonna pray again. So you pray for one week, two weeks, then you can't sustain it, you give it up. That's not the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Islam. The Prophet says, if he started something, he would keep it. So keep Torah and maintain them, sustain them. It's better for you than to pray six
for a few days, then give it up. So it's all about being sustainability when it comes to worship.
So what's the point here? The point here is that getting to Allah subhanaw taala is not necessarily by the amount of deeds that you do. It's not by the amount of deeds. You do the days that you fast the prayers that you pray. It's not with the the quantity, it is with what the quality because the professor explained, he said Leiria Malala had that Emmylou Allah will not cease his reward
until you reach a point of boredom until you reach a point of boredom in your Salah, which means you have gone to access.
So this is how we should treat the deen of Allah Islam. Does this mean we should not do extra prayers. This will be explained later on in some of the Hadith, that
what the prophet Islam is saying here is do not jump into high levels of performance right from the beginning. You don't stop praying a lot from the beginning. This happens gradually. It's a natural organic process as it happens, follow through. But don't push yourself into it. That's the difference. Because you can read from some of the companions of the Prophet SAW Salem. The Prophet saw some himself he would pray a lot, right? So why would the Prophet SAW Salem? C'est la comme Lima totally own this way. He said, Do what you are able to do and sustain. So when you pray you're praying Well, it's not that you're praying while you're sleeping while you don't concentrate.
So it shows that it's not only the quality quantity, but the quality as well is very important in a bad so the point here is not the product I'm saying don't pray so much nobody is saying when you reach a point in your religious maturity that you can actually pray that number perfect, but if you just push yourself prematurely that's where the problem is. That's where the problem is. Some Hadith insha Allah will will give us the light
when unassembled the Allahu Anhu all Jatha to Laughlin healer will You at His Word in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a Luna and a bird that in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Fela macaque Bureau can now call Lou Lou international Mina Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but goofier Allah who might have caught them in them be one might call him a man, Arthur also Lee about the recording after we're gonna assume with the Halawa of the call an artist UniSA fella at a zoo whatever the Fajr our soul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa salam in en for cod and Tamala G in Appleton, Kedah our Cara, Emma Allah in NIDA Akshaya come Lila What are comme la la kidney assume
we're after what are suddenly what? What is a word? UniSA Thurman body behind sunnah T fillet salmon name
is a famous Hadith collected by Bukhari and Muslim from Anna's nomadic robiola and that three people came to the house house of the prophets are seldom. And the at that time the porcelain wasn't there. So they asked about the prayer or the rebirth of the Prophet. What does he do on a daily basis in terms of worship? What's his daily routine when it comes to worship? They asked about it. So they were informed they were informed about it. So they didn't see it as much for them. It's not they thought, you know, a person could do more than this. So one of them said, Oh, they said basically, the prophets of Salaam has got his sins forgiven past and present so and future so he doesn't need
he doesn't need his sins like like us. The problem is infallible as well. For us, we sin so we need to do more to catch up with this. So one of them said, I pray meaning I pray all night and and go to sleep. Second one, he said I fast all days. Every day. I don't break my fast
Third one said,
I do not marry. I do not marry. Why? Because probably he saw marriage as a distraction. It's gonna be responsibilities. You have to provide, you have to deal with issues, you have to have children. So he thought, No, I'm just gonna dedicate my life to worship later on the prophets of salaam comes back and he was told about the statements of these guys. So he approaches them and he said, you said this and that. They said, Yeah, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said to them, I am the one who fears Allah the most amongst you.
And I am the one who has kept the word to Allah more than anyone else, but I fast some days and I open my fast other days. I eat other days. I pray some nights and I still get some sleep.
And I marry. So whoever chooses other than my sunnah then he's not from me. I have nothing to do with him.
So that shows these people came with good intention probably and they wanted to do more than what they saw the prophets of salaam doing yet the prophets I seldom advise them against this
advise them against this so he said you don't you need to sleep so you get some sleep you give your body its rights
for fasting fasting every day is just too much for the body so fast some days and in our four other days don't fast when it comes to marriage do not stop yourself from marrying, thinking that's going to give you just time to worship.
Again this shows the don't forget the chapter here is about moderation in worship.
Anybody mess with another Allahu Anhu and and maybe your SallAllahu already he was sending them a call hola como tanakpur Your own Karla hasta la la la who Muslim and multiply your own Animoto and my own Elmo. Tisha they don't theory remotely. hdwd Sadiq is collected by Muslim reported from Abdullah and Mr. Odle the Allahu Anhu that the Prophet SAW Selim said hello, Kellyanne Watanabe on those who go to extremes have destroyed themselves have destroyed themselves or will destroy themselves. Or it could be this could be
it could be derived from the Prophet sunnah. May Allah destroy those who go to extremes in the Arabic language? This statement holds all these meanings is what they call an Arabic MOSHTARAK. MashAllah colorfully, okay, this statement could mean that the prophets of salaam said people who go to extremes have destroyed themselves or will destroy themselves. Or it could also mean that the person is making dua, May Allah destroy those who go to extremes, all of these meanings are correct. And Omata not everyone here are the ones who go to extremes who overburden themselves and overburden others.
So this shows that this kind of extremism or extremism is not part of Islam at all. extremism is not part of Islam. We tie this in with the Hadith with the first or the first two verses that we mentioned. You read Allah who become a useless when are you ready to be commercial Allah once east for you, Allah doesn't want hardship. There are people who don't see that they have worshipped Allah, unless they go under extreme hardship. If they don't experience extreme hardship, they don't see themselves they don't see that they have done anything. That's the That's a false parameter.
That's a false parameter. The correct parameter is that you do what Allah subhanaw taala wants from you. That's the correct parameter. So it's not necessarily hardship, or is
an MBO way Lazzaro the Allahu Allah Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a call in Edina you Sharon. Well, a new shirt that Dena hadn't worn and you shared the dinner had on 11 for said do Akari boo ABS Shira who was studying or will add what he what he what he was a minute diligent. Allahu Al Bukhari V rewired in the who said they do Akari boo, what we'll do, we're also mushy. Amina dolger, and Castile Casta Tableau. So this Hadith from sila Bukhari two weddings close to each other, but Imam and now we explained so I'm going to read the Arabic explanation from the man in Norway commentary here, and then we'll explain this in English. I will have a dean who Mr. Fortin mela Musa
Masahito what do we have on soba? What do we learn new shed that Deena AHA don't recall who salatu salam in wala who are vulnerable who didn't know what it is a radical Moshe Daniel Kawamata Dini castrato throttle pay. Well look at do I see you Willie Lane what Well,
I will say we're willing to have about how to sell zero asset in the hub with dual Jan
huge leap where this theology in whatever field women are studying Allah Attila here's the origin man if he worked in a sharply come with Harajuku become behave protested the throne and rebelled that well as a Munna. Matsuda Come, come and Musa if you haven't heard it, you see if he had him oh god Where's three who who are the better movie lady her first first and we'll make sure that we re tab Allahu Allah. This is profound explanation from Imam unknown. So the prophets of Salaam is saying in Medina, you Sharon, the deen is is the religion of Islam is is is about is so this is an essential characteristic of Islam.
Islam is about is it's essential in Islam that it is in essence it is is
when you share the dino in love Allah who are willing to shed the Dena hidden in love a level anyone who deals with uses tension to deal with the deen with the religion of Allah. So, that means they push themselves they try to take hardship in the religion, they try to make things difficult or they try to do everything all at once.
Anyone who takes this tense attitude towards the religion in their approach in their practice of Islam, the religion will overwhelm him will overpower him.
So they will not be able to handle it. They will crush the will crush under the religion as demand because as it says here,
that this person who approaches this religion with with the tension and with a lot of intensity and with extremism, this person will not be able to handle this because the religion will overwhelm him. There'll be so many things upon him at the same time.
Then the prophets of salaam says for said they do work Haribo, abseil said they do, try your best to hit the target. That's what Sunday do means try your best to hit the target as Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, Allah Mustapa to
fit the Kola mustard have Taqwa of Allah to the best of your ability, as much as you can, as much as you can. There are people who can have one more than you because they have more religious maturity, you cannot keep up with them.
You and I cannot be like a marble hardtop or Abu Bakr. We don't have that level of Taqwa. We don't. So we're, we're not supposed to reach that level overnight.
So we have to be aware of this set they do. So aim at your target, try your best to hit your target, walk audible if you can't hit the target as close as possible. Audible as close as possible. If you can't meet, you know, meet the point or meet what is needed, do as much as possible, get as close as possible to it, web share all and take things with a sense of optimism. Be hopeful in Allah subhanaw taala.
There are people like if they make a mistake, or they can't do something, or something like gets overwhelming for them, they fall into a state of guilt, they stop beating themselves. That's that's again, not from Islam.
We're studying you know, Bill Doherty, we're roja mache in minute DULHA. What does this mean? This is an analogy that the prophets of salaam gives. He says, The reason I'm saying simply here, that you are on a journey to Allah, travelers, especially at those times, us talking about the Arabian Peninsula, people would travel on foot, or on a camel or a horse. So people would usually seize the time at the beginning of the day after fajr after fajr. Why, because it's cool, the weather is still bearable, it's not, there's no extreme heat. So people will start traveling at that time, until you can say maybe 9am 10am, the middle time of Doha, because the sun has not become very hot. So people
use this time, it's easy to travel, there's no extreme hardship, then they would rest during the middle of the day. Because it's hot. And that drains the energy and tires, they're writing animal and then around so time, they would set off again, they would start you know, resumed their journey. They travel. Why? Because it's cool, again, until maybe midnight until midnight, where they would actually get some sleep. So this is how people used to travel to minimize exhaustion, fatigue and the difficulty of the travel the promise or suddenly saying your journey to Allah is similar to them.
So remember, no, he says is saying here. So worship Allah subhanaw taala, when you have this enthusiasm, when you have attention when you have energy, and you can put your heart in what you do. So seize the moment, seize the moments, you can call them spiritual moments, you can call them moments, when you find yourself drawn into worship. So you should read yourself, see what times of the day or the night, you find yourself more attached to the worship when you're doing it.
Don't try to do everything all the time, you have to be selective, you have to be strategic. That's what that's what Mr. No is, is saying. I'm paraphrasing what he says.
And he's saying, so seize the moments when you have energy, and you have focus. And when your mind is empty, you don't you're not consumed with other concerns and ideas. So that's, you can peace, the sweetness of worship, he says just the behavior, just tell it don't even bother. So you can find the sweetness of worship, we can do it with enjoyment, enjoyment.
For many people, the concept of enjoyment in worship is alien. It's not from Islam. For them. No, worship has to be hard has to be difficult. That's worship. But if it's beautiful, you enjoy it. It's not worship, that's extremism.
If you're not suffering, you're not worshiping, that's extremism.
The best type of worship is actually when you enjoy it, because that's when your heart is in it.
That's when your heart is in it. And when your heart is in something, you don't feel the physical fatigue.
Actually, your body generates more energy. And you can see this, when you engage in something you love, something you enjoy, you actually forget about physical fatigue, you forget about it, you even forget your sense of time, you start to enjoy things, when you engage in any kind of sports that you like, even if you are tired, all of a sudden you don't know where the energy comes from. And you forget about, you know, being tired, you forget about lack of energy, sometimes you forget about lack of food as well, because you enjoy that game, it gives you that different level of energy. That's what the process is talking about here. So seize these times.
Okay, so that you find the sweetness of worship, and well that is a Mona Matsuda Kumar so that you do not reach a point where you become bored of what you're trying to do.
When you don't feel it, you have reached your limits. Some people say, Well, I want to do more will sustain this. And this will help you mature as you mature, you will, you will see that you will actually you will demand more. So you can extend the time naturally, without pushing yourself into boredom.
And that's a very important issue. That's a very important issue. Worship is meant to be done
should come from the heart. It should come from the hearts.
But Alternatively, Alternatively, within our cultures, a lot of cultures what you'll find, when we talk about worship, we think it's all about forcing people into it.
Especially when we deal with our kids, we think we have to push them to do it.
We have to force them to do it.
And it doesn't occur to us that we can speak with them. And we can open their minds where they can actually see the beauty in the ibadah. So they want to do it themselves. It doesn't occur to us.
But when our children reach a certain age, and we say Oh, well, they're not praying, they're not fasting, they're not observing, you know, the karma of Allah subhanaw taala I should discipline them now.
You should start way before this. And you should start by opening their eyes to see the beauty in the worship. Because while I said this previously, I'm going to say it over and over again. Because that's, that's the core part of Islam and you'll find it missing. You'll find it missing. The essence of worship has shifted Islam, Tamia and others said, the essence of what worship means means love Allah Akbar. And muhabba worship means love, in essence. Yes, some aspects of it contain fear, contain fear, but in essence, it's about love. It's about love. So when you worship Allah when you make the hate, that means you do what you do in Love of Allah. That's what it means. So we should
pray in Love of Allah, our kids should correct should pray in love out of their love for Allah.
And when you love something, you're going to do everything for that thing.
When you love Allah, you're going to do everything for Allah. It's not about pushing yourself there. But you will find yourself pulling you in with Allah subhanaw taala
Danna, you can't even keep up with yourself. You can't keep up with yourself because it longs to Allah and out of love. It is drawn into, into the love of Allah subhanaw taala. And you can't like give it what it requests of you physically,
This is why Imam Abdullah Josie, he describes the Companions, he says, there are these are people, their hearts were far better than their actions than their external actions.
And he said, The hearts reached levels of Eman that no physical body could keep up with in terms of actions.
So the hearts were better than their actions.
Then he says people of our days their actions are better than the hearts,
says people of his time. And he lived around the
seventh century after Hitler 600 Something that's when James lived. So he said, people of all time their actions externally are good, they pray and fast and they do but it doesn't come from a good heart.
Opposite of the companions.
when we do our acts of worship, out of love out of our love, the love of Allah that we feel in our hearts, that's when you're going to find the sweetness. That's when you're going to find the energy that's when you will find the focus. This is when you don't need to ask how can I find her short and Salah
you're not going to ask how can I find for sure and Salah because when you are drawn into it, you don't have to bring your focus your focus is already there before you
you only ask the question how can I get my attention in Salah how we're going to get focus? How can I get ashore is actually when your love is somewhere else and you forcing yourself into the prayer.
So we need to work on this side of worship because that's the essence of worship. It's in our hearts
Okay, so this is the meaning the overall meaning of this hadith. Next Hadith and NSW Allahu Anhu called
the halal maybe your Salah Allahu alayhi wa sallam and masjid
for either have been on mum do don't be in a serie at a&e for Paula Maha Hubbell Aloha the hablo only Xena for either affects Allah Tala patchy for call and be useful Allahu alayhi wa sallam Hello,
Do you solemnly Hadoken Naja who for either photography and you're called upon Ali, health correctly by the Bukhari and Muslim from us again. He said the Prophet SAW Salem enters the masjid one day, he finds between two poles in the masjid. There's a rope tied up, there's a rope.
So the problem sees that Robin says, What's this? Like? What's this rope? What is it for? They said this is for Xena Hussein.
The wife of the Prophet SAW Sanlam Xena bento,
Xena been to Jash.
Only Ilona. So,
they said this is for Xena. She uses it when she prays. And then she reaches a point where she physically cannot sustain being standing like this. So what she does she relies on actually depends on it. She leans on the on the rope to keep her standing, because her body cannot take it anymore.
She can't stand up anymore. So she leans on it, to keep her standing in her salon. That's obviously it's a little late night prayer. It seems to be. So the Prophet SAW Selim said, untie that wrong.
Untie that rope and he said, Let let any one of you pray for as long as they find the energy to do this. So if you find your body reaches a point of fatigue, exhaustion, you cannot sustain it. Go to sleep.
Go to sleep someone would expect the President to say oh pray more. That's good. pray more. Know the promises of themselves. If you are unable to stand up that means you have pushed yourself way beyond your limits. It says you pray for as long as you have energy for as long as and this includes physical energy and mental energy.
If you lose that and go to sleep, go to sleep.
And I should tell the Allahu anha analysts will Allah He said Allah and He will send them a God either NASA Hello como Ilana is
where where you will suddenly fill your head. Oh no, for in the inner head either Salah whenever he soon had real Allah Who yet you're still a fit for your soup bone Hafsa who couldn't honey?
This hadith is collected by Bukhari and Muslim from a shell the Allah but Allah sama
And Justin Selim says, if you feel sleepy, you feel sleepy
or drowsy while you're praying. And obviously, that's night prayer.
Let them go to sleep.
Let them go to sleep until they get enough sleep so they can wake up with good energy.
So let them pray until they lose that state of,
you know, drowsiness. Then he says because if one of you prays in that state of being drowsy or sleepy, you don't know you might want to say a stop for Allah, you end up making a dua against yourself. Because your mind is not there. Your mind is not there. And we know that when you reach a point of fatigue, there's no mental focus. There's no physical energy, there's no mental focus. So you could be saying something which you actually don't intend which you don't enter Now remember I probably said this. I'm not there was an imam leading us in taraweeh. And I think he was tired that was long ago and
he basically made the diet he said
alarms alarm on sort of caffeine or something like this. Oh Allah give victory and support to the to the coffee
okay. And and he said basically Aloha Malika Bilal Muslim, you know, some Allah destroy the Muslims or something like this.
Okay, he didn't say that intentionally. But obviously it was obviously he was very tired. So he started mixing words up.
so salah, is not it as you said, it's not only quantity, its quality. If your mind is not there, your body is not helping. You should go to sleep. That's what the professor is saying. If you feel drowsy, sleepy, go to sleep until your body is in good is in a good state. Then you want to pray go ahead and print
one lb Abdullah Germany some a lot of the Allahu Anhu McCarl come to Salim and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Salawat for cannot Salah to Kirsten were for Tibet to who Koston Raha Muslim, Columbo cars done and eBay in a totally well case.
This is Jabra Minos no Sumeragi Allahu Anhu. He says I would pray with the prophets. I send them the if the five daily prayers
and his Salah was moderate
was moderate. It wasn't long, wasn't short. It was moderate. It was moderate.
I remember someone told me I was in in Egypt for some time 10 years ago, and one of my friends told me about their local Imam.
He's an old school chef, old school chef. He was a scholar learned person graduate from Eliza and very good person but very old school as well. Yet when he prayed the heart he said he would stay in salata door for about an hour and a half. And forecasts
Yes. And I think he that's a person who used to recite the whole Quran
once every day for himself in his Salawat in his whether it's silent or loud, so he would solidor was an hour and a half a shirt was something like an hour
so this is why they said if you're just passing by don't pray in the masjid because you'll be stuck like you're trying to get some paperwork done in some government place or something and it's a lot a lot okay, I'm just gonna pop in 10 minutes pray but hold on come out you'll be stuck for an hour and a half okay
but the Prophet SAW Selim his prayer was was not too long was not too short it was moderate

And this from webinar, Abdullah the Allahu Anhu. He said the prophets of Solomon, he made them aka the Brotherhood. In Medina, he Salman al Pharisee, was with a Buddha
as two brothers.
So Salman visits a Buddha that one day and he sees a dog that visits the house, he only sees a mother that she looks on with her that she's not dressed up properly. She looks like she doesn't care, doesn't take care of herself. She doesn't take care of herself. So he asked her he said, What's What's wrong with you?
Marsha anokhi, she said, Your brother has no desire in this life, anything in this life. So basically, he doesn't approach me. He saw his mind is so much into worship, that he doesn't walk bother about anything of this life, including his wife. He doesn't approach his wife.
So later on after that comes, and he makes food.
He makes food out of that because he's the host. And he offers
he offered some man food and he says eat.
When he excuses himself. He says, I'm fasting. You eat. I'm fasting. That's a Buddha. He says Salman, he makes the food and he offers it to Selma. He says you eat. I am fasting. I will eat later on me.
So Salman said, I'm not going to eat until you eat with me. You have to eat with me.
And it wasn't Ramadan. It wasn't an obligatory fasting was never like he was just a volunteer to do this fast. So he ate with him. Then it was nighttime.
Straight like seems to be after Aisha came back home. He started wanting to pray, pray family. Obviously it seemed that he was praying all night.
So Solomon says to him go to sleep,
go to sleep. So he goes to sleep.
Then later on, like, let's say midway in the night,
he wakes up again he wants to pray. Solomon wakes up and he says to him go back to sleep, go to sleep. So he goes to sleep.
And then Salman towards the last third of the night he himself wakes up and he wakes up with the app. He says Now let's pray. So they pray be Amelie.
Then Salmaan turns to a Buddha that teaching him he says to him in Arabic Allah your Lord has rights upon you.
Were in the UFC guy like
yourself has rights upon you meaning your body your mind everything has rights upon you. When he actually Kalika happen your family your wife has rights upon you. For out they could literally have been have gone give each one of them their rights.
Because if you give more rights here you're going to take from someone else's rights.
Now I would like that wants to verify double check with the Prophet of Islam. Is that correct or not? So it goes to the messengers Salaam. And he mentions the story the prophets of salaam says sadaqa Sandman. Sandman has said the truth. That's the truth. That's the truth. So again, you see that's what the prophesied and recommends that's what the companions were upon. Its moderation moderation in worshipping Allah subhanho wa taala.
Another Hadith from an abbey Mohammed Abdullah Muhammad Rasul the Allahu Anhu marcada book Beyond maybe you saw some of them and the upu Allah Helios woman and how well a woman Leila is to for God also lines Salam Salam and Lita all with Eric for all Tula who got called to be Obi Wan Antonia rasool Allah, Allah in Nicoleta study Oh Darrick for some well after what I'm working on, was so Mina share Hadith Allah Azza Yom for in Al Hasan Abu actually, I'm familiar with Ali camisa, Lucia MC da ultrafine otaku, Abdullah mean Derek, Carla for some young woman who after young men will tune in you will take off but I mean that kind of assume your woman will have to reopen for that because

one corner I'm loving Hamilton has won a corner ability to sell out at a yam and Latte parlor Rasulullah
Use Allahu Allah. He was a lamp, a headboard in a yam in Li wa Mani
Abdullah bin amylopectin house. He says the prophets of salaam was informed that I had said
I should fast all these. And I shall pray all nights. So the prophets of salaam asked me you said that. I said yes, indeed, I said that. So the prophets of salaam told him you cannot sustain it, you cannot do this, you can't sustain that there's something you can't sustain. So the Prophet said, fast, some days and don't fast other days.
Sleep and pray at night.
And from every hour in every month, fast three days, fast three days, because Allah will reward each hasna 10 times. So three days is like 30 days. So if you fast three days every month, it's like you have fasted the whole year,
three months, or three days every month, that means 30 days. So as if you have first the whole month, each month, the first three days, as if you have fasted the whole year, that's the reward you get.
So I'm the Allah said, I said to the messengers, and salam, I can do more than this, the processor and said, Well, if you insist, fast, one day, and leave off two days, so every three days fast one day and live two days fast one day live two days. So I said I can do more than this. The prophets of salaam said okay, then fast one day fast every other day fast. One day live one day fast one day live one day. This is the Siyam of the wood prophet that would he said, This is the best of cm.
Abdullah said to the President, I can do better than this. The prophets of salaam said there is no better than that.
There is no better than that.
So, Abdullah later on a later stage in his life, he says, I wish that I accepted the advice of the prophets of Salaam and fasted only three days every month.
That would have been better for me.
So again, that shows it's not about quantity quality. And when the professor lamb prescribes moderation for us, it's better for us. It is better for us.
There is another wording of this hadith what I'm just gonna skip this

And he says, how will you handle it? I said,
you know, I've become a hypocrite or I'm making hypocrisy. So I'm Rebecca said, Subhan Allah and that shows when you are amazed at something or you're puzzled by something, it's as soon as you Say Subhan Allah. So you said what are you talking about? He said, when we are with the prophets of salaam humbler says when we are with the company of the Prophet, he talks to us about paradise about the Hellfire as if we see it with our own eyes. But then when we leave the prophets I seldom go and deal with our families and our kids and our business. We forget we forget Oh, a lot of this. So because said I experienced the same thing like so if it's a problem let's go and check with the
Prophet SAW Salem. So they go to the Prophet Solomon, they tell them what that was.
So the Prophet SAW Selim says
if you stay in the same spiritual state, meaning as you as when you are with me all the time
you would reach a point where angels would come and shake your hands, when you are in bed, and when you are walking down the streets, that this high level of purity spirituality, and connection is way beyond human capacity, you cannot do this, you cannot, if you were to reach that you will become more like angels to the point where angels would probably reveal themselves to you to the point where they shake hands with you. But you humans cannot do this, you cannot sustain this. That is why he said, Saturn was,
you know, some time for worship, and this high level of spirituality and connection to Allah subhanaw taala will you experience it, and one day or another time, one hour here, one hour there is you have to go about doing your daily business, you have to sustain yourself, you have to fix something, you have to deal with people, right? You have to take care of your family. You have to take care of your kids. You know, dealing with kids is not spiritual. Really teaching your kids or disciplining your kids or taking kids to the park is not a spiritual experience. We can find some people can find maybe some good spiritual things in it. But it's not essentially a spiritual
experience. It's a human interaction, dealing with people on a daily basis. It's not a spiritual experience. There's a lot of concerns. There is a lot of emotional baggage. There's a lot of misunderstanding. That's not a spiritual experience. It takes your attention away from Allah subhanaw taala. So But that's the nature of life. That's the nature of life. You have to have time where you're purely with Allah subhanaw taala focused on worship, focused on element of aid the unseen world
and completely absorbed there. And God to have some times about being practical in this life, you have to deal with practical issues in this life. That's what the test of this life is about. So this is why the prophets of salaam said satin, was you know, spend some time here in some time here that's normal. This fluctuation is normal, is a normal human phenomenon.
And even the ambassador of the Allahu Anhu Mr.
Boyle beat them and abuse a lot of salami
either, either who will be allowed Julian call him Fussa alphacard who had a father who is ill another lot in your home efficiency when I awkward while I still really love when I get to kill them, we assume for calling the BU salatu. Salam Morrow who failure to kill them while you're still living. While you Tim masoumeh What Allah will Buhari collected by the Buhari, the prophet Saddam was given a hot bowl one day and he saw this man standing in the sun and the heat of the sun.
So the Prophet was puzzled, why doesn't this man like sit down and in the masjid in the shade, and listen to the hotbar in that state? So they told them this is a man, his his name is Abu Israel. Israel is the name of Prophet. Yeah, cool Prophet Jacoba Islam one of His Names is Israel, is what children of Israel are the children of Jakob and Islam. So his name was Kanye was a buoy slide.
He made a vow, he vowed to stand up in the heat of the sun, and not to sit down.
And not to talk and not to eat just to fast.
So the prophets of salaam said, tell him to speak. Okay? Don't you know hold back speaking, you speak because there's nothing good about, you know,
this kind of fasting, you know, it's fasting from speech, you don't talk.
There's no point that and let him seek shade from the heat of the sun. And let him complete his fast his fasting Fine, let him complete his first.
So that shows in Islam as well, he, it's not about seeking hardship. There's nothing good about hardship is not sought for itself in Islam. That's a very important point. Hardship is not sought for itself. It's not a goal in Islam. Hardship is not a goal. Hardship is not a goal.
We set the goal and the parameter is to follow the words of Allah subhanaw taala. And the instructions of the Prophet SAW Allah and he was that's the goal.
Now how to have an ease there is irrelevant.
But to start seeking hardship, that doesn't show by the way, a good heart, doesn't show dedication doesn't go doesn't show good intention at all. It doesn't. It has no significance in that in that respect. So we will come down to the end of this chapter, but just to show you that worship is about moderation. So first of all,
Oh, it's about things that you can sustain. And it's about things that you in terms of worship, things that you can find your heart in, that you can keep your attention with. As a member no explains here, you, you pray, and you worship and you fast and you do whatever acts of worship for as long as you find your heart in it, and you find its sweetness, and you can do it. You know, with your heart being there. That's what it is. But the moment you reach what the President says, Lay him a lulu habitat Emmylou. When you reach that point of boredom, when you don't feel it, but you're just pushing yourself into it. That's when you should stop.
That's when you should stop. And all of this is with the voluntary, voluntary things. That's where the voluntary things because the things that are obligation Islam are not hard, essentially, they're not hard. They're within human capacity. And they're not Do not place a burden when they place a burden under certain conditions like traveling.
Or like times of war, or specific times. There are exemptions in Islam that are known. And
so Islam again is about is, as we said, and this is something that we need today, we need to do, because there's a lot of our younger generation is under the impression that Islam is about hardship
that Islam is about but overburdening yourself. And Islam is all about making life hard for people.
There are people under this impression, it's very tacit and hidden. And that's the problem. Because when we can pinpoint something, we can speak about it. It's easy to deal with it. It's easy to fight it back. But when it's subtle, it's unspoken, we don't have language, even to discuss it. That's when it seeps in. And it festers and it creates so much trouble without us not realizing there's a problem. So this is a serious issue. Islam is about easy as Allah subhanaw taala
says, you read Hola Hola, como nuestra wala, you read to be commercial. So Islam is about is Islam is about this. And if we fail to see the ease that is in Islam in one instance, then we are missing the bigger context.
You might find in one instance on some, some certain conditions that there is difficult difficulty. But if you take that point in isolation, yeah, you're gonna find it difficult. But if you zoom out and you look at the whole context,
you actually going to see that this is actually the best option.
This is the best option.
So that's the main point.
I believe in this chapter. We have some time for questions. So let's take some questions. relevant questions, first half priority relevant questions, any questions?
those of you know, most of the time we are praying, but legally we are praying we are not.
So means even though we understand sometimes some are big, not large, but still we try the
Whew, sure. How can you get Sure, and most of us struggle in this regards.
I've looked into this for years.
the only way Honestly, the only way he should most of us experience experience for sure, on certain occasions. And we experience it as a gift from Allah subhanaw taala.
But the real secret, the real secret of Osho there are many things that could help you for sure. You know, just be mindful, you're standing in Allah's Presence, that now you're conversing with Allah subhanaw taala these increase your focus and thus they feed into your social, but the real, main cause of short
Is Love. For sure is not a state of mind is the state of heart.
It is a spiritual state is not a mental state and there is difference. mental state is about the focus. So when you have focus, which is mental focus, which is a mental state, it is conducive to for sure it does enhance your question.
If you are distracted, it doesn't do good service to the level of your question.
So that's an A contributing factor but the reality of Horseshoe as a state of heart. It comes from love.
If you find someone, two people in love and real love, they really love each other when they are together.
are in beautiful moments, what they are in is a state of Iowa, some form of culture? Well, not exactly. Because with Allah subhanaw taala it's a different experience. Still.
Social is a state of heart, when you feel drawn in your way to Allah subhanaw taala. And you feel this kind of bliss at that moment.
You can't there's no words to describe Kashiwa really, there's no words to describe for sure, there's no words, because it's a it's a state of the heart, it's spiritual state, tried to talk, in our trenches, it's focused, it's not focused focus helps for sure. So really, really the only the real heart of Kosher comes from from love from loving Allah subhanaw taala.
And love of Allah is in the heart, but you just have to make yourself aware of it. You have to turn into your heart and search for the love of Allah in it.
Really, now things that help for sure. First is before salah, clear your mind. If you have unfinished business, finish it.
Finish it, don't leave things hanging, finish them. And it's good to take a few seconds, at least maybe sometimes a few minutes as well to say now I'm going to pray. Okay, so I want to clear my mind. And I put my mind completely put my focus completely on this task, I'm just going to put all my mental energy into the salon. So I'm going to make a law now, for example. So we make although mindfully seeing that when you make will do your cleansing your sins as well as the Prophet SAW, Selim said. So when you experience this, this serves as a warm up, it puts you in a spiritual state, because you're no longer consumed by this physical world you also see the unseen world you are aware
of it now my sins are being cleansed. I don't see them with my eyes. But since the process of them told us as you wash your hands, the sins you committed with your hands are being washed away with the water. And similar with your face, similar with your feet. So you see since being cleansed, that puts you in a more spiritual context. And then you say to yourself that I'm going to I'm going to stand in homeless prisons now.
So I'm not going to worry about anyone I'm not going to worry about the people next to me. What's the color of their socks? What pants they're wearing, right? Whether their shirt is nice or ugly, I don't care I don't care about this. So aw Duvalier.
Or one of the greatest have a tablet in here. He said
so late to fee if you missed the the rasool Allah He Salah Salem Alba Aina Sana, lemma Irishman, Allah EMA Allah, Yemeni Well, Ashley Marie, he said afraid 40 years in the midst of the Prophet SAW Salem, I never recognize the people on my right and left.
He knew them he knew who like if you looked he would recognize people. But he was so absorbed that he did not even recognize people around him. He didn't never paid attention.
So once you decide, I'm going to put my whole mental focus in this process now 10 minutes 10 minutes, I'm just going to put my I'm going to clear my mind completely remove everything out. I won't allow anything in my mind now except the fact that I am studying Allah's Presence, and I'm conversing with him
is not gonna yield itself easily the first time, second time, third time, but the more you try it, the easier it becomes you have to invest in this.
So these are things that that help in terms of prepare yourself just before you entered as long
as we have physically Yeah, almost everyone does this, unfortunately. Because we come to the Salah, we all will be making our calculations, my bills, what I'm going to say to this person, I'm going to say to that person, what did he say to me and Allahu Akbar, will obviously going to carry the same trail of thought, so create a break, and you say, Okay, I'm going to put an end to all my thoughts, running thoughts all over the place, I'm going to put an end to them, I will deal with them later on.
So I'm going to think there is a fear in the self that if I don't keep my mind working on these issues, if I don't keep on top of my issues, I'm going to lose control.
It's that fear. So in Salah, your mind is rushing because it's working on survival. But when you realize my survival is with Allah. So yes, maybe there are issues that I need to deal with. But I'm, I'm now standing in the Presence of Allah who controls these issues. Why don't I just go to Allah directly.
And when I say Salam aleikum, Allah, Allah, I'll go back to the Battle of life. But I'm going to take a break now complete break, disconnect from this dunya so hopefully these things help but no one really can find her show except with love when you bring that love to your attention, the love that you have in your heart, the love of Allah, bring it to your
Tension, short is more likely to come in. It's more likely to come in and the more aware you are of Allah outside the prayer, the more Allah is going to give it to you in the prayer, it's a gift from Allah. So a few are mindful of Allah outside the prayer Allah is going to give it to you even inside the prayer.
Do you think that we should be different from one person to another? That for me myself, I got another for sure when it comes to that sort of, you know, the
fire. And I get those ones really shaky? Like, I'm not really sure because I understand very well, what's going to happen in Europe.
I know I love Allah, but also, you can also be filled from Allah, for sure comes from the field, as well. Okay, a lot of people understand that point.
I'm not necessarily saying this is the case here. But oftentimes we mix between assure, and an emotional experience. You can have an emotional experience when you listen to versus talking about Jana, or talking about partners. But that doesn't have to be crucial. That's focus.
Yeah, so it's not necessarily for sure, you can find someone who doesn't understand Arabic who doesn't understand what the recitation is. But at some moment, they have this feeling of bliss connection to Allah at that moment. So such a special moment and salah, they don't understand what is being said, was being recited. They're just, they feel they're drawn. It's, it's like, it's a sense of elation. It's like flying, and you don't know where it comes from.
Although you don't understand the meaning. Sometimes it's just because that's the connection with Allah. It even it transcends language, transcends language. Obviously, when you understand it helps. It adds a lot. It's very important. But it doesn't mean if you don't understand and the answers second part of your question, even if you don't understand doesn't mean that you're not going to get what I said it's a it's a spiritual state. It's the state of the heart, not necessarily state of the mind. So when someone hears or recite some verses about paradise, or about the hellfire, and they get emotional, that's not it couldn't be for sure. But it's not necessarily for sure.
It's not necessarily for sure. It could be just an emotional state. And it's not necessarily bad is good. Okay. Could be good. But it's not necessarily hotshot. So there my distinction, as I said, Who sure is, you can't really I mean, you can't put words on that. Really, you can't board. The only way to define for sure is to experience it.
The only way to really define culture is to experience it. That's the only way.
Hey, I have a question.
Can you speak up
