smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam

00:02:53--> 00:03:15

ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa tabin woman tambien be excited Hitomi Dini or bad. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household, all his companions, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless them all. And to bless every single one of us, my brothers and sisters,

00:03:17--> 00:04:05

I see and I noticed the face of the youth, which is really, really a very positive feeling. It is something that is extremely good, something that really gives us hope of the revival of the oma and at the same time. It is something that brings about a lot of goodness within community and society. I must mention as I start the first evening lecture during my few days that I will be here in the city of Colombo in Sri Lanka, that as I disembarked, and as I left the airport, I noticed great development in this country infrastructural change of a positive nature. For this, you need to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you need to thank the government of this particular country that they

00:04:05--> 00:04:48

have really engaged in so much. I noticed it took me just about 15 minutes to get across from the airport to come into the city, whereas last year, it took me one hour and 15 minutes. So that one hour by the will of Allah, some of you might complain that the CD that we have in our car, we are no longer able to listen to the entire lecture. But believe me, what really is of essence is that the journey has been made easy sometimes we take for granted this type of development. But having traveled to many countries, let me tell you, you are fortunate. You think Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah grant our strength in the same way that we have a highway that comes from the airport, all

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

the way into the city without any traffic lights, we zoom across so easily. We need to think about how good we feel when we can actually Dart from one end to the other

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

Without any obstacle, what about darting into gentlemen? In the same way? What about going through the highway without any obstacles with no traffic lights into paradise? May Allah grant that to us as well, in the same way that a huge effort, dedication and money was required to bring about that highway.

00:05:20--> 00:06:01

effort, dedication and wealth will be required to build your entry into paradise. Similarly, something extremely important when we use these facilities, we don't for a moment think that they will help us the few times that we use that road perhaps we will go down in history as being a generation that contributed to our country the most maybe, but what about going down as a person who entered the earth era? A person who entered Paradise by reaching out to people by being the best of people by trying to obey the instructions of Allah subhanho wa Taala as best as possible by being people who are always found in the messaging? What is the masjid amazing that's our topic this

00:06:01--> 00:06:45

evening. The cry from the masjid so topic I was given to speak about amazing so I chose to start with the cry of the highway. Because Mashallah, as we move under the highway Think for a moment how lovely we feel. I felt so good. I was actually shocked for a moment I thought I was in a first world country to my left and right to a beautiful green gardens amazing, even better than some first world countries. The weather has been immaculate and excellent this time by the will of Allah We thank Allah for this. But as I was crossing I told myself Yeah, Allah grant us entry into paradise in a similar way. Then I remembered that entry into paradise also requires a great effort. What is that

00:06:45--> 00:07:09

effort? Make your way to the houses of Allah. Find your way to the place where you will prostrate the term Masjid is derived from the word or the root sajida which means to prostrate sir, that to prostrate the place of prostrating is known as the masjid how many of us prostrate five times a day for our maker, then we expect to enter Paradise with ease.

00:07:10--> 00:07:26

A great effort is required no one is asking you to lift concrete blocks in order to get that highway everywhere No, but what is being asked of you is to lift your blanket off your bed in order to get the highway prepared by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:27--> 00:08:07

you know those of us in Mashallah, in Sri Lanka because of the laws of this country, many people have updated motor vehicles. You are not allowed to import a vehicle older than X amount of years beautiful law because the country is updated everyone has nice motor vehicles and when you jump into your new car Mashallah whether it is an alpha or a verifier, whatever else it is Mashallah you know what happens? You feel so nice because of the smooth ride you are happy but you don't know that was an expensive car, you worked so hard to earn the money and at the same time, you bought it you want good roads, what did you do to contribute towards those good roads, some of us have done very little

00:08:07--> 00:08:20

or should I say we can do more. But we get so excited when we have a lovely road. One of the things that came to my mind was Mashallah those with the Jaguars now will really enjoy the ride because we can how beautiful it is.

00:08:22--> 00:08:49

Love awkward I don't know about the speeding fines and traps and all that but it's all part of the laws. However, how excited we get for a beautiful ride, we will fulfill the laws and get to our place. The same applies with Allah subhanho wa Taala you want to enjoy a beautiful ride to paradise. When you just go to fulfill the laws do not go above the speed limits, make sure you are not stopped or blocked by some obstacle. May Allah protect us from spiritual punches.

00:08:50--> 00:09:12

Sometimes when we deviate, you know person wants to talk on their mobile phone while they are driving. And believe me that is so dangerous and detrimental that even from a religious point of view, it is frowned upon very strongly you are putting the lives of others in danger. Even if you think you are multitasked Believe me the women who are multitasked perhaps will tell you don't do that.

00:09:16--> 00:09:43

They will tell you don't do that. What about us. So if we are to talk on the mobile phone, not only will we be fined, but we are putting lives at risk including our own, we will tell you adopt the law, adopt the law of the land do not do that. What about with Allah subhanho wa Taala why is it that we want to get to a destination but we are not yet in the masjid. We have not yet got to the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala we have not yet read our Salah.

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

So, to start off this message, I want to invite you to the most beautiful pillar of Islam after the Shahada and that is to fulfill and establish your five daily prayers. How can I call myself a Muslim when

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

I have not yet established my five daily prayers. And if you notice the establishment of your five daily prayers will come upon levels, there will be a stage when you have to force yourself to do it. You have to my brothers and sisters, we love each other for the sake of Allah, we want to go to Paradise, we do not want to see each other heading in the wrong direction. Imagine the day in a few years when your entire city and country is linked with beautiful highways, what will happen is if you miss one 10th you will have to go perhaps another 10 to 20 kilometers before you can get another term, you will have wasted fuel you will have wasted a lot of time and perhaps you might not get to

00:10:39--> 00:11:26

your destination on your particular appointed time. What happens to us is in our journey to Allah subhanho wa Taala we sometimes miss the turn, we sometimes go further in transgression of Allah subhanho wa Taala. By the time we come back, we have already lost a bit May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and effort is required. We want to see each other in paradise without making an effort. Nothing good just comes about take a look at the infrastructural development while live. It might take you four years to build a building, a tall building a skyscraper in the center of the city. But after those four years, you are smiling all the way, the stress, the amount of money spent, the

00:11:26--> 00:11:58

sleepless nights for how many years for four years after that, you can rest because your building is built. But that rest also, it is conditional to the type of building you have built. If your structure was not good, you will always be worried of the building dropping, may Allah protect us, it is prohibited for us as Muslims to go against the laws of town planning. Because if we put up a structure that is dangerous for those who will live in it, then we are guilty of culpable homicide the day that that burden comes down and loss of life happens that Allah protect us.

00:12:00--> 00:12:10

So this is why as Muslims, we need to be good citizens of our own land. And how will we be good citizens of our land when we are not even good to Allah subhanho wa Taala as laws.

00:12:11--> 00:12:27

So this is why the most disciplined of people are supposed to be the Muslims. They get up early morning, not because they've got to go to work, but they have to prepare for that palace of this which is going to come after death. Just today I tweeted something very interesting.

00:12:29--> 00:13:10

We heard of the death of Nelson Mandela. And it is natural that a man who has struggled to fight tyranny, to fight racism, to fight oppression and so on who became an icon globally, of the fight against apartheid and racism and so on. He is a man that will definitely be missed. He has left a legacy we learn from and amazingly we all say condolences to his family, and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us the day we die we learn a lesson from such a death. Because what I said today is something strange. It came to me a Juma whilst I was speaking. And I'm sure some of you might have heard it.

00:13:12--> 00:13:40

Life is not guaranteed for anyone not at all. No one here can guarantee that he or she is going to get up and walk out alive, not one person. But at the same time death is totally guaranteed. If I were to ask you how many of us are going to die one day, we will all have to put up our hands every one of us yet we prepare for life much more than our preparation for death and post death. It's a sickness.

00:13:42--> 00:14:07

We become sad at the loss of life Don't we? When life is lost, we become sad we should be saddened loss of life. If it is a Muslim, we are we are sad if it is a non Muslim, we are sad because they have not seen the light. So as we become sad upon the loss of life, we should be even sadder, more deeply saddened at the loss of the afterlife.

00:14:09--> 00:14:45

If a person has lost this life, but they have not lost the afterlife, they are still prone to gain they will be gaining they will be smiling one day forever and ever. But if a person has lost this life and the afterlife, then it is called casilla dunya. Well as here on the Lika who will husana maybe he has lost the JR and the earth here. That is indeed a manifest loss. Very clear cut moonbeam straightforward. You have lost both this world and the life after death. So how many of us have whatever we want in this world?

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

Not a single one.

00:14:49--> 00:15:00

So when are we going to get whatever we want? what some may Allah protect us may never ever get everything they want because they would have lost the dunya and they would

00:15:00--> 00:15:17

have lost the earth era. But we as meaning and believers, we definitely do know that with us, even though we might have lost a little bit in the dunya, we might not get exactly what we want, we might not be, for example, able to marry precisely who we want, sometimes it is not possible.

00:15:19--> 00:16:01

We might not be able to have as much wealth as we want, perhaps the health we have is not as we would like it. But Allah says, Don't worry, a time will come, when I will give you whatever you want. What is the condition, just ensure that you have fulfilled the instruction of mine as you lived in this world? Now one might wonder what is the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala we have spent a lifetime studying the instruction of Allah and we will continue studying it. It is something that is not difficult at all to fulfill. In fact, it has in it the blessings in this world, as well as in the life after death. Say for example, a person who gets up for prayers early morning, he has

00:16:01--> 00:16:10

already disciplined himself, the non Muslim will tell you Early to bed, early to rise will make you healthy, wealthy and wise. Have you heard that?

00:16:12--> 00:16:47

I can add to that if you want. But let's leave it at that for now. Early to bed early to rise will make you healthy, wealthy and wise. We will tell you as muslimeen we were taught this a long time ago, Allah forces us to get up early. There you are. So stage number one, you will force yourself because it is the law of Allah. stage number two, you start enjoying it because you love Allah. Amazing. You start enjoying it my brothers and sisters because you love Allah, I see the youngster seated in front of me, my brothers, my sisters, remember one thing

00:16:49--> 00:17:19

if you start fulfilling your prayer because you love Allah and do it as a pleasure, that's the day you will feel the inner joy and the link with your own maker when you know deep down that my maker will not let me down when I get to the life after death. I definitely do know there is something awaiting me that will result in everlasting bliss that will result in smiles that will result in me getting what ever I desire. fi hamikdash

00:17:22--> 00:17:23

what else

00:17:25--> 00:17:48

what else oh two movie have Holly do it meaning in Paradise, whatever your soul desires, whatever is tasty to your eyes, and you will be in there forever dwelling there in forever and ever. I'm sure we've heard this verse many a time in the past. But do we work towards it? That's a question.

00:17:49--> 00:18:25

May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us, may he strengthen us. We have the houses of Allah, it is not befitting for us to even start speaking about the house of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, when we are not even fulfilling our five daily prayers, when we are not even fulfilling our own Salah. I've always told the youth and the youngsters, listen my son, do me a favor. Do yourself a favor. What is the favor? fulfill at least your father, that's the minimum, we are not saying that that is your duty, fulfill your facade and walk out. But that is the starting point.

00:18:27--> 00:18:32

It is a starting point. Some people are lazy, they say, you know the solar to Asia is going to take me so long.

00:18:33--> 00:18:37

I'm going to have to eat the sooner the further and the sooner and the winter and so on.

00:18:38--> 00:18:54

And so they say, Well, I'm not going to read it, just leave it It's okay, because I'm weak and weak. The reality is that those are the clutches of the devil. Imagine a man is telling you, this is just an example that came to me now, a man is telling you, I will give you $5,000 and you say no.

00:18:56--> 00:18:58

I don't have any place to carry that money.

00:18:59--> 00:19:12

So just leave all of it. If you have space for $2,000 take to at least and you know it reminds me of the man who was dreaming. And in his dream someone was offering him something some money. So

00:19:14--> 00:19:21

it was the other way around where the man is saying Okay, you know what I'm going to give you $100 he says no, I want 1000 he says no, no, no, no. I'm only giving you 100

00:19:22--> 00:19:26

so this man who was sleeping He says no, I want 1000

00:19:27--> 00:19:42

so the other man is arguing he says no I only giving you 100. In the meantime, something happened and this man woke up when he woke up from his sleep. He realized there is no 100 and there is no 1000 so he quickly Close your eyes. Okay, just give me the 100 Let's get it sorted out.

00:19:43--> 00:19:45

Give me the 100 Let's get it sorted out.

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

But the point I was raising was that as much as you can fill in your pocket, fill it take it because you are unable to carry a large amount maybe but at least you will be able to carry something when

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

happens with us when we look at the Salah, and we think now I have to make Ooh, now I have to go now I will have to spend so many minutes what will happen amazingly we start thinking, for example, wrongly that let me just leave it all together. I'll just make Toba a little bit later on I will repent to Allah. It does not work that way.

00:20:17--> 00:20:20

Men taraka salata, mata ammidon for the careful

00:20:22--> 00:20:57

Do you know that the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim, such a big warning, a warning of the exit from the fold of Islam of a person who intentionally abandoned Salah This is why, a few weeks ago, one of my colleagues was asking me that, you know, when we get each other up in the morning, and we we should be very careful how we word it, because if you're waking someone up, say for example, wife is getting up husband, or the other way around, and say for example, the wife is saying, Listen, my hubby, are you getting up for Salah? He says No, I have not. You know what he's saying?

00:20:59--> 00:21:11

He's saying I'm not going to fulfill the pillar that makes me a Muslim. So I'm just leaving it and it only took you two minutes to do it. It took you five minutes it took so don't say are you getting up for Salah say get up

00:21:12--> 00:21:48

to say get up because the minute you say are you getting up for Salah? If the answer is no, believe me it is such a dangerous statement. I don't even feel like uttering how serious it is. person saying no. It's like telling Allah you know what I don't want and you walk away How can you do that? So we ask a lot to strengthen us we need to think of these deep statements as well. Getting someone up get them up are you getting up into yourself I'm alive I'm breathing I've got eyes I've got so many things I'm you know Masha Allah, Allah has blessed me so much. Let me get up for the sake of my makeup start my day with due regard of Salah. So you start with the firm. Then you come across a

00:21:48--> 00:22:33

Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam where he says rakata fecha de Cairo Mina dunya amavi ha so hey Muslim, the prophet SAW Selim has explained this hadith Subhana Allah where he says the two units that are read for Salah till fudger, which is the sooner or further not talking of the forum, the forum is already compulsory, it has its own reward, but the two sooner the two units that we are reading pre for the Hadith says they are better than the entire world and whatever it contains, imagined, so get up a little bit earlier. Amazing, those two units. And this is why when we get to the house of Allah, we should get there a little bit early so that we can read them beautifully.

00:22:33--> 00:23:09

Some of us get there late. And then we want to rush through those two units as though Allah is going to be benefiting from what we are doing. It is us who are benefiting, not Allah. I cannot rush through my Salah in a way that I pretend that I am doing a service to Allah. No, I am actually benefiting myself. I'm serving Allah subhanho wa Taala. But he does not need that act of worship. It is me who needs it. So remember, start off with your father, my brothers, my sisters, extremely important. That Salah when we get up early morning, not only will we feel good, but we have already

00:23:10--> 00:23:23

been awakened. at that beautiful time you can go to work on time, you will not be late Why you're a Muslim. When a Muslim says I will be there at eight o'clock Believe me by the will of Allah five to eight, they are there.

00:23:25--> 00:24:07

This is why I always say in most cases, those who arrive late for their appointments have something wrong with the fulfillment of their Salah on time. Always. They might be obviously some exceptions to that because people who arrive late due to reasons beyond their control, but if a person is always late for his appointments, what will that indicate? It will indicate that they are not on time for their appointment with Allah five times a day. But a Muslim should be so disciplined that when the alarm goes off already they are preparing to walk towards the machine. Imagine on a Friday. Did you know that there is a competition that takes place? A beautiful competition that takes place?

00:24:07--> 00:24:40

Do you know what? Those who come first to the masjid Their names are recorded this one was first. This one was second. This one was third? The malla aka the angels are standing at the door of the massage recording the names of those who came first second one uncle comes 10 o'clock in the morning. His name is written every Friday this man is first. This one is second that one is there. When the Imam gets up in order to deliver the sermon. Those books are closed and even the angels come in to listen to what is being said. So hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam,

00:24:41--> 00:25:00

how many of us want to win that race even once in our lives? Once in our lives, a lot of us seated here Mashallah. We've been reading Salah for years and hamdulillah Juma we've all been there today Mashallah. We had a beautiful crowd so lots of Juma, but the winner is He who came first only Allah knows who that

00:25:00--> 00:25:26

It was and then second and third and fourth and so on. So much so that another Hadith says whoever is there in the first hour, they are as good as he who has sacrificed a major animal for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala who comes in the second hour, meaning in the second time is as though they have sacrificed a smaller animal and so on and so on. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from the winners at least a few times in our lives.

00:25:28--> 00:25:38

Something very interesting. The House of Allah subhanho wa Taala the masjid imagine myself if I were to come to your house, I would need to know you at least

00:25:39--> 00:25:48

I would need to know you a little bit before I just come to your house. I wouldn't like to barge into anyone's Oh, no, I might not be welcome there somehow Allah.

00:25:50--> 00:25:56

Allah subhanho wa Taala grounders goodness, if I am close to you, you will find me at your home.

00:25:58--> 00:26:07

If I am not close to you, if I have a problem with you, you will find me never coming to your home. How many of us have a problem with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:26:09--> 00:26:11

why then do we never go to his house?

00:26:13--> 00:26:21

When I say never I mean Juma. We are there because we heard someone say that if you're not there for Juma you exit the fold of Islam. So we go there by hook or crook.

00:26:23--> 00:26:55

But we are talking about that which you feel I want to go to the house of Allah. Why do we have a problem with Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you see one man in another man's house every day, and the two of them are sitting and having meals together, and the two of them are really enjoying the company of each other every day, it means they are so close. They have a beautiful relationship tomorrow. If one of them says brother, I need your help, urgently, I am stuck. The other one will say okay, leave everything I'm canceling my trip overseas, I'm coming to deal with whatever the problem is.

00:26:57--> 00:27:06

Why? Because you are very close. One man will cancel his trip overseas because of the sickness of another man's child. If they are very, very close, they can do that.

00:27:09--> 00:27:50

So you see that one man in the other man's house and they are sitting and eating together every day, it is indicative of their closeness. What about us, the house of Allah we are not there on a daily basis. We find ourselves the relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala is not as it should be. Do you know why? Because we have the devil who beautifies for us that which is around us in a way that we begin to think this is the main aim of life. So the main aim of life, in a lot of cases becomes the materialistic items. I want to marry the king's daughter, and I want to be able to buy that particular vehicle and I want to live in that type of a house and I'm going to buy that particular

00:27:50--> 00:28:14

property in the city center. And I want to earn a figure a salary with 12 digits for example, whoa Subhanallah that's your aim in life. So Mashallah, you ended up marrying the king's daughter Alhamdulillah you ended up getting that car, you got those phones, you got that salary, you bought that house, you built that building, whatever else now what now What happened? Now you're old. So

00:28:17--> 00:28:47

May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us goodness, love Akbar, Allah bless us, you have not yet started. You have not yet started getting into building for the investment of the earth Hara because Salah is not in place. Zakah is not in place, truthfulness is not in place. You know, protecting from sin is not in place. Those are the things that will earn us paradise, we worship our maker alone. That's what we declare that's what we say, but do we act upon it?

00:28:49--> 00:29:04

This is why remember, it's important to learn things connected to the dunya to this world, very important. You may have the luxuries and the facilities but don't make that your main aim. You need to learn survival of the earth. Let me give you an example that I think I've given before.

00:29:07--> 00:29:10

There were these professors who were crossing the river

00:29:11--> 00:29:12

in a boat

00:29:13--> 00:29:14

with an old man

00:29:16--> 00:29:40

who was the sailor, he was rolling away as they're sitting there. And one says I'm a professor of biology. And the other one says I'm a professor of geology. And the other one says, I'm a professor of this ology. And the other one says, I'm a professor of hematology, and the other one says whatever else and they all look at this man and says, What are you a professor of? He says, I didn't go to school.

00:29:41--> 00:29:52

They say you have wasted your life. Did you hear what they say? You have wasted your life. All he's doing is he's busy rowing. He's rowing the boat, and they're all crossing the river.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

They're all professors in the ologies. So now suddenly, the waves

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

Come when the waves come, what happens?

00:30:05--> 00:30:09

The old man who's rowing he looks at all these professors and he says

00:30:10--> 00:30:12

have you learned swim ology

00:30:17--> 00:30:19

do any one of you know how to swim?

00:30:21--> 00:30:22

And they said no.

00:30:23--> 00:30:25

He says What do you have wasted your life?

00:30:28--> 00:30:29

He says I am a swim ologists

00:30:30--> 00:30:34

and I know dive ology, so I will dive into the pool ology.

00:30:38--> 00:31:24

The moral of that is, I won't indeed you can indeed how you want you can either make them drown or you can make them have survived somehow. But the moral of it is look at the focus. That is how we operate in this world. We know every ology, but we don't know that analogy. And you can call it Salah, ology whatever you want to call it, call it but do we pray? Do we know Do we have the link with Allah when the true waves come of death? Will we be from amongst those who have survival kits so that we can live happily ever after? Oh will we be from amongst those who will have to say I don't know I had everything I was a professor in every ology there was but today I don't even know

00:31:24--> 00:31:26

the I don't even have a linker with my maker whom I'm going to return to

00:31:28--> 00:31:41

something very important for us to think you know, we are sound intellects this country Mashallah beautiful we speak English we understand we we have read and written we have top schools whether it's in Thomas or any other school.

00:31:44--> 00:31:46

I see the smiles. I just overheard that name today.

00:31:49--> 00:32:21

So it's important for us to know that we have everything laid down. Every time we go to school we pass the masjid and Nimrod Masjid and what else Masjid Mashallah, everything we passed, and we look at it and our handler called the masjid every time we pass it to see Mashallah going to extend this they're going to expand it they're going to make it big and hamdulillah we hear that we see Did you see the new musty we are putting up those that Mashallah, but we used to carry on going to university and come back, go to school and come back what was the link of the masjid? Only the word Mashallah, if we are lucky.

00:32:23--> 00:32:53

Someone comes from above, and we take them around, we say See, this is a machine. Okay? We know how often have you gone there, my brother? How often have you put your head down on the ground for Allah that is the link. These houses will bear witness for us or against us on the day of piano, you came here or you didn't you put your head on the ground that piece of ground will bear witness forever and ever so and so and so and so and so and so have put their heads on this ground I bear witness for the sake of you, Oh Allah.

00:32:55--> 00:33:27

I'll be ready for the ground to bear witness that we have prostrated on it. For the sake of America five times a day, it is not difficult. Come on, strengthen yourself, you will find you know, I went to one country I won't say which country because I don't want to say anything negative about any country, but it's a positive statement. I'm about to say I went to one country and I entered this lounge. You know, sometimes you have access to a little lounge just before you fly. And what happened. I noticed someone from a distance who was not dressed appropriately.

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

And suddenly I went

00:33:32--> 00:33:33

into this little

00:33:34--> 00:33:40

business center where they had a computer and so on and I was busy with my work. A little while later

00:33:41--> 00:33:53

I came out and I was walking to the masala masala meaning the place of Salah as good as a Masjid, so to speak a place of making such day. So as I was walking out,

00:33:54--> 00:33:57

I noticed the same person covered from head to toe.

00:33:59--> 00:34:09

They had just gone in for salah and they were walking out that's what I noticed. And in my mind I said to her Allah this Sister, I wouldn't even have known that she was a Muslim.

00:34:10--> 00:34:56

But she has gone into fulfill her Salah the only way I know Is she came out with something from top to bottom. Later on I saw her again. She was back to her original dress. She had another handbag perhaps she folded up something in her in her handbag and put it in whatever she had to cover herself with. And I told myself there are people who are dressed as proper Muslim who do not read Salah does regularly they will be too embarrassed. And here they are people who we might look at and we will not even think they are Muslim but they are fulfilling their Salah both of us have something to correct both of us have something to correct. But the one who is the bigger hypocrite is the one

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

who is dressed correctly and does not bother to have the link

00:35:00--> 00:35:14

Allah regarding Salah May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from hypocrisy later on. One brother met me at that same lounge, and he told me Do you know the sister here is a very, very big celebrity.

00:35:16--> 00:35:19

And I was shocked. I said amazing Look, the celebrities

00:35:20--> 00:35:43

who are Muslim, fulfill their Salah. They know they have to answer to Allah. They know they're answering is not to me and you but with us. We forget for a moment and we think look at these people. Are they even proper Muslims but my brother You will be shocked. Those who you think are a big deal in the world. Some of them fulfill their Salah more regularly than you and I may Allah make a strong

00:35:44--> 00:35:53

really because when you start off with salah and you link with Allah through Salah it will automatically protect you from a lot of immorality and evil.

00:35:54--> 00:36:31

A lot of it and sometimes people say but I've been reading Salah for many years, why is it that I still feel the inclination to outwards adultery or pornography and so on. That is because there is something wrong with your Salah. Perhaps you are just paying lip service to it. One of the main cries of the masjid of mustard here meaning the place of prostration is my brothers and sisters. We have not yet understood the Salah that we have been fulfilling for years on end. We have not made an effort to understand the meaning of semi Allahu leemon hamedan Ravana Allah can handle I don't even know what it means.

00:36:32--> 00:36:49

And we when we don't know what it means, how can we achieve the sweetness of it? We are reading salla Allahu Akbar, Allah protect us. We don't know anything. We have no clue. Let me give you another example. This I was told by one of the Masonic

00:36:51--> 00:36:53

he says there was a man

00:36:54--> 00:37:12

who was fulfilling salah and he was an irregular but he made his Toba and he came to the masjid. So he arrived at Salatin fudger and I hope my brothers and sisters that not a single one of us, Mrs. Salatin, fetchit tomorrow morning. Is that a promise? By the will of Allah you know, in sha Allah means to three things I'm sure you're awake.

00:37:14--> 00:37:20

inshallah, then you say, Are you coming to my house inshallah? They mean they don't come and say Did I say yes, I just said inshallah.

00:37:22--> 00:37:24

You're gonna say yes, inshallah. So are we ready tomorrow morning.

00:37:26--> 00:37:27

And the other four soldiers as well.

00:37:29--> 00:38:07

Not just federal. Okay. So this man walks in for salado and he's standing and the Imam starts reading Surat Al Baqarah. Okay, he reads surah Bukhara, and it's a nice long surah you know, Surah Baqarah is very long. So this man is standing and he's thinking hey, this Imam is leaving long. Now one of the cries of the masjid My beloved imams who lead the Salah. Do not overlength in your Salah stick to that which is sooner and understand it and realize that when you lengthen your Salah sometimes you are discouraging the weak ones behind you from coming for the next Salah. So if you are standing and reading beautifully or the microphone is good and the Mashallah everything is

00:38:07--> 00:38:17

beautiful and nice and the weather is beautiful, and you are just prolonging prolonging. There are some of those Surah Baqarah people at the back, you know, so you need to remember they are still a bit weak, you know.

00:38:18--> 00:38:30

So that is one of the cries of the machine is you know, calm down call it a little bit maybe you rather read a bit shorter so they come back and we don't want to read quick in a way that we are insulting Allah you know, taraweeh time in the house of Allah.

00:38:32--> 00:38:48

Many of the Imams they read like a Concorde that's why they have stopped the Concorde. No, do you know that Concorde is blocked, banned, finished? No more, all of them that are still there. They're just in museums, because it's too fast. We have conquered Salah

00:38:50--> 00:39:10

What is that? What is that? You are insulting Allah subhanho wa Taala Rama read short and clear then to read long and unclear and insult to Allah Who said you have to finish the Quran. To finish the Quran is assume that which is very great, but not at the expense of speed. Never ever.

00:39:12--> 00:39:15

Remember that and this I'm addressing us as imams who lead in the masjid.

00:39:17--> 00:39:25

People say I went and I listened to the whole Quran that men used to finish that away in 10 minutes. What did you hear? You just heard the humming of a bee that's all like a sound of a mosquito

00:39:28--> 00:39:49

coming to your ear and that's all you knew. Allah protect us. So this man came in for salah and is reading the surah baqarah is being read and he at the end of the Salah. You know he looked at the man next to him nudged him he says he does he mom read very long which surah did he so he says it is called Surah Al Baqarah which means the cow and it is the longest surah in the Quran.

00:39:51--> 00:39:56

So he said okay, now I must ask before I start my Salah which sutra is being read.

00:39:58--> 00:40:00

So Al Baqarah was very, very

00:40:00--> 00:40:10

So now he came from the poor fellow, and he started Allahu Akbar, Allah Pauline, and he starts he starts at m da da da, da da boo cabbie.

00:40:14--> 00:40:21

So this man, not just the other one that says, You know what, before you start, what surah is this? He says, This is the elephant. And

00:40:22--> 00:40:29

so that man says if Baqarah was so long, I'm sure he must be even longer. Let me go with

00:40:31--> 00:41:07

my brothers and sisters. Remember, this is the attitude and mentality of some of the public because they are weak. So he says, No, this is one of the shortest sutras in the Quran. The reason I'm saying this many reasons, there are many benefits for all of us, but one of them is we have not yet made an effort to know the sutras in their meanings. That is why we do not achieve the sweetness within the Salah. I have had occasions where I have led personally some long solo out of solitude. And some people have come to me and told me chef you should have read even longer the meaning was so powerful Subhanallah that is the type of statement we need.

00:41:09--> 00:41:37

But we don't know the meaning we're not bothered. Like I always say we've studied so many books in order to achieve all those ology degrees we spoke about moments ago, but we haven't studied the one book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. nor have we studied the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it requires an effort, it requires dedication, it requires time of work, it requires a lot you have no guarantee that you will live to old age when you can do that. So let's do it as soon as we can.

00:41:38--> 00:41:44

So one of the cries of the masjid is that a start learning the meanings of the Salah that we fulfill.

00:41:46--> 00:42:39

Let us learn the size of the Salah. Another cry of the masjid when we go down in frustration. Don't do it as though we are chickens trying to pick on little pieces of grain from the ground. No, do it as an act of worship of the highest degree, the prostration to your maker uporabo Maya coonan Abu Dhabi Yahuwah, Sajid, the closest that a slave can be to his maker to Allah is when he is in sujood in frustration, so you are the closest to Allah when your head is on the ground. So take your time, that is one of the cries of the house of Allah or the cries of the place of such depth that we are there for a very short time, lengthen it a little bit. Learn some of the other two hours that you

00:42:39--> 00:43:18

should be reading in frustration, such as the Virginie levy holiday holla, who was a water who worship Kasama obasa amazing supplications of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he used to say Subhana Allah and I'm sure we know he is praising of Allah glorification of Allah subhanho wa Taala who is my hub, my maker, my Creator, my cherisher my sustainer the one in control of every aspect of my life the Most High. One of the statements The other one is my head, or my face has prostrated on the ground for the one who has made it.

00:43:19--> 00:43:38

That's what you are saying. My head is frustrated on the ground for the one who made it. The one who gave it its form meaning the identity you have everyone has a unique identity The one who gave it its form I'm putting my head on the ground for he who gave me my identity and the one

00:43:39--> 00:43:48

who caused a little hole within what is known as the air such a perfect hole that when it was opened I could hear

00:43:50--> 00:43:54

and the one who slipped the most perfect slip

00:43:55--> 00:44:25

at my eye in a way that when it opened I could see who gave you your eyes and your ears Today we are listening Mashallah beautiful we can all hear loud and clear why Allah gave you is so we all love the frustration or alarm putting my head on the ground because you gave me ears you gave me eyes You gave me my identity. You gave me everything else. That's why I'm on the ground. And this is how you develop your lingo Jamaica, how can you let the time of Salah go by when the more admin says hi.

00:44:31--> 00:44:34

Ah,

00:44:35--> 00:44:39

beautiful. And we say a given that just sounds like

00:44:42--> 00:44:49

it's not about the song. Nor is it about the dune. It is about the message come to success.

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

So when we die, we will be told but you in your life have heard the call to success 21,000 times. Why did you only respond

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

Do it 200 times

00:45:04--> 00:45:23

we made sure that that statement highly alfalah is repeated twice in the call for prayer. And two times in the preparation of, or should I say once or twice in the preparation of the stuff in the masjid, yet, we are still found elsewhere. How can that be?

00:45:24--> 00:45:40

Who does not want success? Every one of us wants success. I want to be a successful businessman successful in my family successful in this and in that of you? You know, a few hours ago one of the brothers were saying make do out for me, I need success in polygamy.

00:45:41--> 00:45:44

And I'm thinking to myself, my brother, powerful,

00:45:45--> 00:45:46

very powerful to

00:45:47--> 00:46:30

me, Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us success in achieving the best of the earth here. Really, we need to focus on this. We all want success in every aspect. However, the ingredients or the formula to achieve that success, we are not ready to follow it. Not ready to follow. Someone wants success, for example, in polygamy, but all he wants to do is to make halaal his little girlfriend he's had for many years May Allah protect us look, the doors of Toba are open that's a topic on its own. Today we are talking about the cries from the masjid Allah subhanho wa Taala Quran does goodness, that call from the machine. It is also a cry, come to success come to success. We are far away from

00:46:30--> 00:46:47

success who wants real success. Find yourself in the house of Allah, find yourself prostrating for Allah not just one day I have had cases where people say I've been reading Salah now it's been a week and I haven't yet seen good results.

00:46:48--> 00:47:13

One week Allah gave you life my brother You are 30 years old. So for 30 years you will not feeding Salah one week you started leaving you expect to start seeing big change. You know when you plant the seed, some of the trees like some of the mango, some of them and even some of the papaya, some of the different you know, trees when you plant it. It doesn't just grow the next day. It's not like a jack in the beanstalk story No.

00:47:14--> 00:47:48

you plant the bean now tomorrow morning is up to seven heavens It doesn't work like that. You firstly you soften the land, you plant the seed you need to know how to plant it you put water you add fertilizer you look after it when it is young. It is more easily broken than when it grows strong. So when you've just been painted to Allah and you've started reading your Salah, you will become more prone to the clutches and the whispers of the devil who will tell you no come on leave it it's okay you achieving nothing. That's the devil your plant is still small, you are allowing an elephant to trample over it your tree is gone. But you need to nurture it you need to look after it.

00:47:49--> 00:48:31

Make sure that when it becomes strong The trunk is powerful of the tree then you find it will not be damaged. So I was saying some of the trees do not bear fruit the first year they bury the second year. Why? Because one of the lessons is sometimes you will call out to Allah within minutes you are given what you want. You go for the first Salah after Toba and your doors open already. That's the gift of Allah upon you. That's a very big gift of Allah. But that doesn't happen always. Allah loves us so much that He holds us longer. He owes us longer. I know for a fact. Sometimes when a person is far away from Allah subhanho wa Taala out of the love of Allah, He creates difficulty in that

00:48:31--> 00:48:44

person's life so that they've come close to Allah. Now they are trying their insula, they are doing tahajjud I'm sure a lot of us when we have had problems in our lives, we will regulate the hygiene. The problem was solved that it goes

00:48:45--> 00:48:57

I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. Some of us we have a problem. We are there for Salah first stuff so much so that when that admin is not there, we are the ones who do that karma. And you know, they call it a karma attack.

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

Once the problem is solved, why don't I see you in the mastery session My problem is

00:49:06--> 00:49:08

over a stove.

00:49:09--> 00:49:20

So if that is the case, it's better for Allah to keep you in a problem all your life so that you can continue coming here. So the mom is saying Oh Allah, that man used to come every so often put another problem in his life.

00:49:22--> 00:49:59

Why? Because we need to see him here. He needs to come it's a cry of the machine. Why wait for a problem before you read your Salah Believe me Allah can do that to you. If he loves you he can do it create big disaster. And then suddenly you're in the house of Allah crying to Allah you dressed appropriately. Now why? Because I have a problem. The mirror problem is gone. The dress code goes that goes this goes everything is gone. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. So like I was saying, a man saying that for one week. I've been reading Salah My problem is not solved, he needs to understand. No, Allah did not guarantee you that if you read Salah for one week, your problem

00:49:59--> 00:50:00

will be solved.

00:50:00--> 00:50:11

But he did guarantee that the moment you repent correctly and you start after the promise that you are not going to miss a Salah, fulfilling your Salah correctly you will achieve the contentment of the heart.

00:50:13--> 00:50:54

Allah be the karela he taught me in mukono. Behold, it is through the remembrance of Allah that the hearts will achieve that contentment, that peace, that tranquility, what is the remembrance of Allah, one of the highest forms of remembrance of Allah is Allah, Allah itself and the recitation of the Quran and trying to learn it and its meaning and putting it into practice. That is partly one of the greatest forms of the dhikr of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we ask Allah to strengthen us, like I say, success we all want, but the formula, the caller who's calling to success, we don't want to respond to him, by command telling you, I would

00:50:54--> 00:50:55

like to go to golf.

00:50:56--> 00:51:14

And when he's not there, he's going in another direction. Where are you going to go? But the signs saying goal and the people who are calling out towards goal there they are, they're in the other direction. You say, No, no, no, I'm going to go Don't worry. It's called mela protect us there was a man collecting funds for Palestine.

00:51:16--> 00:51:51

So we found him to be fraudulent, may Allah protect us and from this we learned something my brothers and sisters do not believe everything that you hear and see collection for this and collection for that make sure it is immutable. And make sure you know who you are giving I know of scams, even on Facebook and Twitter and elsewhere, where they will pretend to be someone they are not some people pretend to be myself as well. And they will say we are collecting funds for Indonesia and we are collecting funds for here and they and they will take custom by Allah. So this man we went to see him and we told him you know what, brother? Why are you doing this? collecting

00:51:51--> 00:52:02

funds saying you are collecting for Palestine? He says, Well, I am collecting for Palestine come to my house. I'll show you the proof. When we arrived at his house on the gate, there was a sign his address was there. And he says Welcome to Palestine.

00:52:05--> 00:52:11

Welcome to Palestine. So he was collecting money for his own house. And he named his house Palestine.

00:52:14--> 00:52:23

So when people were giving they were given to Palestine but which Palestine they don't know. Now that's a new one. When someone says we are collecting for Indonesia asked him which Indonesia

00:52:25--> 00:52:37

May Allah grant protection to our brothers and sisters across the globe who are struggling man he used us to reach out to them. So the point I'm raising is sometimes we say I want success with success,

00:52:38--> 00:53:05

this call to success you are going to the right. But we you are supposed to go to the right if you are working working towards the left shaytan also has his address and on his gate, he has the word success. Do you know that which means he will promise you and He will promise you big success but he calls you in the wrong direction. So you need to know the source of your knowledge. You need to know the source of the success that you are yearning for. It is the house of your maker. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness.

00:53:08--> 00:53:33

Now I'd like to get into a few Nitty gritties that a lot of the menfolk would be able to relate to my brothers when you get into the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala you need to know your dress should be appropriate. The verses that I read today they are versus amongst those verses, there was a verse where Allah says, Yeah, bunny Da Fu Xena Doku My

00:53:34--> 00:53:40

name is JD Oh Children of Adam. Ensure that you dress beautifully.

00:53:41--> 00:54:24

At the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala don't come in as though you are a little soccer player in your shorts and your little t shirt with all adverts on it. You know I visited Dubai recently. And I was so happy to hear that some of the massage there Do not allow you to enter in clothes that have any form of writing on them. You're not allowed to come in, go back dressed appropriately, either in proper clothing that covers you with you know discipline clothing, formal or your proper long press. When you walk back. They literally send the people away telling them you are not fit to enter the house of Allah. So people ask me, is this allowed or not? It is definitely allowed. They say but

00:54:24--> 00:54:59

it's not your house. How can you not know there is an etiquette It is just that in our countries we are weak. So we do not implement that. By right even the nightclubs will tell you that you are not allowed to enter with this clothing. In that style Villa we make sure we fulfill that rule but the house of Allah we will arrive there with something that rarely has dirty messages on it. May Allah protect us all. The minimum I can do for Allah subhanho wa Taala to dress properly, appropriately and going into his house. I must smell good. The Hadith says if you have eaten raw

00:55:00--> 00:55:30

You know garlic, then do not enter the masjid until you have washed your mouth thoroughly thoroughly because you will harm the people next to you with them bad smell. What about us who smoked like chimneys, and we have packet after packet of Marlboro and whatever else there is, then we enter the house of Allah and we expect not to harm the angels and the men who are there or the people who are there. My brothers, it is about time we made sure we were clean and smelling good, smelling good. And this is why one of the benefits of Voodoo

00:55:31--> 00:55:42

is that we will wash our feet we will wash our hands and so on. So when we enter we will not have smelly toes that have just come out of smelly pair of shoes May Allah protect us.

00:55:43--> 00:56:04

So wash up thoroughly coming to the house of Allah. Also, we don't want to disturb the other worship is in the house of Allah. Make sure your phone is on silent. One of the biggest cries of the masjid today is that we have the latest of the dirtiest of songs that are playing in the house of the Almighty. Allah mean coming from whom from myself and yourselves.

00:56:05--> 00:56:32

And this is why I challenge you to put a simple ringtone on your phone. The reason is, if you were to make a mistake, we are human beings we make mistakes. If you were to make a mistake to have left your phone on whilst you're in the masjid in the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala if it were to ring at least the ringtone will not be a distraction via dirty words. It will be a mid tone that will be ringing and you will turn it off as soon as possible.

00:56:33--> 00:57:02

So put yourself a simple ringtone. Why do we need all these funny ringtones of people singing songs of the dirtiest nature and then we enter the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala and by default that is the time the call comes. Why is he he was one must read I entered salado and believe me as we started the first mock up a man's phone rang the next day I will happen to be in the same machine for Serato the same phone the same man the same time and the same song.

00:57:04--> 00:57:28

And I told myself Yala same song on Samsung law. If I looked at that, man, I might have embarrassed him a bit more. So I waited until I saw him go out, walked out with him I greeted my brother you know Mashallah beautiful to see. We all human beings, we all make mistakes. So the issue is not that your phone rang because that's a human error. But my brother The issue is the ringtone you have.

00:57:30--> 00:57:32

And he looked at me and he just did this.

00:57:34--> 00:58:10

That might give away where he was from, but anyway, Allah make it easy. At least I hope the brother The message was correct. And I hope that he benefited from it. It was my duty in a beautiful way we do not want to embarrass you, because that is the house of Allah. These are the cries of the house of Allah I have been into the masjid must you do Haram in Makkah, some of us go for Hajj. And you know what, this is something I have seen. One brother was complainings very strongly about others who are making a laugh and answering their phone. And he was sitting with me and complaining. Moments later he got a photo of and you know what, as he was coming around, I saw him on his phone

00:58:10--> 00:58:11

as well.

00:58:12--> 00:58:28

And thinking look, we are quick to point fingers at others but we are guilty ourselves. Really many times we are guilty ourselves. We have not yet done anything to improve ourselves but we want everyone else to improve and this happens throughout our lives. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us improvement.

00:58:30--> 00:58:43

So, these are some of the cries of the masjid Also, my brothers do not fight over a fan and an air condition and a window and so on in the house of Allah.

00:58:44--> 00:59:17

That will spoil your stay at the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala it will spoil it in your for a little while by the will of Allah If yes, you have the capacity and you are for example, part of the group that runs the masjid you may want to make decisions. I remember going into the UK and I saw a sign saying the windows on this side shall remain open. The other side had sciencing the windows on this side shall remain shut. So whoever wants can now choose I should either sit here or sit on that side. Because some people like it cold Some Like It Hot.

00:59:18--> 00:59:21

I hope there was some who liked it in the masjid nine days low.

00:59:23--> 00:59:38

If you understood what I said May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection May he make us from those who understand we go to the house of Allah few minutes and we spoiled the whole state by complaining Oh man, that brother you close the window. I'm never going to go back there again. People fight Really?

00:59:40--> 00:59:59

A fight fists. They stop coming to the masjid. Why? Because that brother He closed the window. He opened the window. He switched on the fan he turned the fan off. These are irrelevant. Ask yourself how many of us go to the masjid for a window? How many of us go for a fan? How many of us go for a certain spot. If that's the case, we are there for the wrong reason.

01:00:00--> 01:00:19

Sometimes allow once you to endure. So when you sweat a bit, you can actually shed a lot of your sins perhaps you might be elevated in status by the time you walk out because you sweat it much more and you only endured for the sake of Allah and for the sake of the unity amongst the brethren, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us.

01:00:20--> 01:01:07

So these are some of the cries of the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala like I started I'd like to tell you, my brothers and my sisters, remember fulfilling Salah that masala we buy, you know what is a masala Giada it is a cloth that we use to read the Salah upon, although we don't need that cloth because we are allowed to read on bare ground, according to the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam but a lot of us would prefer to use a cloth just for our own purposes. Believe me, what is the point of buying fancy Turkish carpets and beautiful travel carpets or travel pieces of material or little rags in in plastic, where we say I want to give you this as a gift? What is it? It's a

01:01:07--> 01:01:08

small travel payment?

01:01:10--> 01:01:11

We've never used it. What's the point?

01:01:13--> 01:01:23

If you are honest, you could say my sister just give it to someone who really reads this Allah? Would we say that? None of us would say that because we would be too embarrassed. But inside sometimes that's the correct answer.

01:01:24--> 01:01:25

So we can change that.

01:01:27--> 01:01:38

inshallah We are looking forward to the peace. We are looking forward to inner peace. You know, one of the biggest gifts that Allah blesses us with, after the man is peace and stability.

01:01:40--> 01:02:01

What is the point of external peace when there is no internal peace, we would like the development of both. As much as people would like to live in harmony and peace, we also need to wish for the internal peace, wishing alone is not enough work towards it, my brothers and sisters, and really, I promise you one thing, the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:02:03--> 01:02:48

and that is those who fulfill their Salah, and those who establish salah and give out their arms or their arms, meaning the charities to the poor. Allah subhanho wa Taala says for them is paradise for them will be goodness in this world and the next. So if you would like goodness in this world, my brothers, my sister's, my sons and daughters. Remember, establish your prayer out of the love of Allah without missing a single prayer. And on top of that, give from the wealth that Allah has given you without clinging to it, and you will find you're preparing your paradise you will be investing towards that fella that success because you have realized that whatever I got in this world is

01:02:48--> 01:03:29

temporary. So let me give and my preparation for the ophira primarily is that I worship Allah alone, and I fulfill these five daily prayers. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless every single one of us. I hope the few words I have said this tonight. I hope they will motivate us to read Salah. Believe me I've been as direct as possible. And I hope and I pray that every single one of us can learn something fulfill the prayer for the sake of Allah for your own sake for your own benefit. If we were to die in right now with an intention in our hearts that Allah forgive our past from this day, we are never going to miss a single prayer. We will take our time without prayer we will learn the

01:03:29--> 01:04:01

meanings of our prayer by the will of Allah we will enter Paradise by mere intention, but loss of Hannah hautala Amano Binney yet we're in America every man hour indeed all actions are judged by their underlying intentions and for every person, every person shall receive what they intended or the recompense of their intention. So every one of us intends inshallah, by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala with an effort from us as well that we have given by Allah subhanho wa Taala to fulfill the Salah, am I right?

01:04:02--> 01:04:09

By the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad was Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
