Speaking about the second pillar of Islam he says, the establishment of prayer, so Salah is a pillar, such a strong pillar that if we were to drop it, we would actually be dropping the entire building known as Islam. A person's closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala is established to gauged by his importance given to Salah how much importance does he give or she gives Salah. If Salah becomes extremely important, it means that part of the building is extremely powerful and the pillar is very strong, all the other bricks and everything else that you have for the building, it will all be placed there after and inshallah we'll have a beautiful building May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant
us genital fear those. But this being a pillar of Islam, it's important for us to recognize that Allah subhanho wa Taala would like this as a link between us and him a commitment something that's going to keep on happening, and the quality of it should be improving as time passes. Remember when we establish Salah we don't just get over and done with it. Oh, it's the time to pray. Let me quickly get done with my prayer and come back. Sometimes that would quickly could be an insult because we should not be making haste. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says suddenly Salah tamada in when you fulfill and establish your prayer, make sure you do it as though it is a farewell
prayer. It's your last chance. And if you do it like that all the time, one day it will be your last prayer. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us.
