Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My brothers and sisters, if you're struggling with Salah What that means is shaytan is tampering with you laziness, and sometimes you might be missing a prayer or two, then what you need to do is become more disciplined. understand one thing, Salah is one of the most important Pillars of Islam, if not the most important pillar of Islam. It is dedicated to Allah alone, and shaytan will definitely come to us to try and distract us from it. If you can overcome the whisperings of the devil for that you will overcome it for a lot of other things. So dedicate yourself to the prayer. We put our heads on the ground for the one who made us

00:00:42--> 00:01:23

five times a day. So behind Allah, he is old that he made us and we're going to return to Him. You know, when you think about death, and you think about where am I going to go, one of the things that should come to your mind is I'm going to go back to my maker and you know what, I've worshipped him throughout my life, I've put my head on the ground for him. So I'm very, very happy to go and meet with Allah subhanho wa Taala my shortcomings He will forgive and my ibadah the good deeds he will actually accept from me. So your prayer, please be stronger for it. You know, be in the right company. Try and listen to something motivational. Stay away from sin, and Allah will strengthen you

00:01:23--> 00:02:07

towards fulfilling this five daily Salah. But when we have not bothered about our income or eating of halaal when we venture into that which is haram, then obviously we will become lazy and the energies we derive will not be used for the right things but rather for the wrong things. force yourself at the beginning. Make sure you are hard on yourself at the beginning and get used to it. Getting a fudge of making sure that you're doing your Asia your Salah, and wherever you have missed it or overslept. Remember the prophet SAW Selim says manana and Salatin owner sia half olusola eva cara, whoever has slipped over a prayer or whoever has forgotten a certain prayer.

00:02:10--> 00:02:35

As soon as you remember it, you need to fulfill it. So in sha Allah, may Allah make us all strong. It's definitely something that will protect you from evil and immorality. A lot of blessings will come about when you please Allah subhanho wa Taala through prayer. So if you're struggling with it, yes, you're just a human being. Strengthen yourself and Allah will be pleased with you. And it's a long term dedication. Don't ever, ever become,

00:02:37--> 00:03:17

you know, lazy. When it comes to your prayer, be strong, be very dedicated. There are 1000s and millions of people across the globe who wouldn't miss even one of their five daily prayers. Why should we be left out from that number? Why should we be tagging along at the back right at the back when it comes to the day of judgment and all those who are praying are right in the front, so Han Allah, may Allah strengthen us all. I've been to parts of, you know, the poorer countries of the world. And I've noticed a lot of dedication in places that you wouldn't have imagined it and then sometimes when you enter the cities that are luxurious and very modern and very, very advanced, and

00:03:17--> 00:03:49

you find people lazy, you start telling yourself you know, no wonder why this technological advancement was not there at the time of the prophets of Salaam it's a distraction. Sometimes, people play games and they don't want to pray. People actually do things they don't want to pray. People are on their phones on WhatsApp and on a call and they don't want to pray. They prefer all these things over their connection with Allah, it when you die, all this is not going to help you. Your connection with Allah will help. May Allah strengthen us forgive us and grant us goodness. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah.
