When we go into the position of sujood, we're also asked to make dua, make dua meaning supplicate to Allah. It's the closest you could be to Allah.

00:00:15--> 00:01:01

Learn the beautiful supplications of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam learn to ask the almighty using beautiful words that were used by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam all that were mentioned by Allah subhanho wa Taala in Revelation, these are the most powerful words, and we should try our best to learn them to use them to call out to Allah. May Allah make it easy for every one of us. And may Allah grant us our wish. But I want to raise the awareness of something else. Whenever you're sad. Whenever you're feeling anxious, whenever you don't know what's about to happen whenever there is uncertainty in your life, whenever people are trying to harm you. One of the best

00:01:01--> 00:01:27

What were they saying? Well, the people of Quraysh used to say nasty things to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam false accusations, words of belittling they tried to be liberal but they would never succeed because nobody can belittle the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam they mocked at they scoffed at and the only thing that happened was their own status was dropped. Never did that affect the status of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam but Allah says it tightened your chest we know it saddened you the reason why it saddened him was he was desperately seeking their guidance. And he was so sad that they were not listening and that it was going to be affecting them

00:02:29--> 00:03:18

negatively. So part of Nobu and Prophethood is that the messenger peace be upon him was very concerned about the guidance of those whom he was calling out to the dean and therefore whenever they rejected or mocked or scoffed at, etc, he would be saddened and the tightening of the chest refers to so many things. Allah says we know that what they're saying tightens your chest, but we want to advise you What did Allah advise him Subhana Allah, Allah says, For sub behind the Arabic declare the greatness of Allah, glorify Allah, declare the praise of Allah Alhamdulillah is referring to the praise for sub bit behind the Arabic declare the glorification and the praise of

So the prostration will help you overcome that hurt, that sadness, that anxiety, those negative feelings, what will help you frustration will help you my brothers and sisters. Take your time. It's a gift of Allah. Go into that position and weep to Allah,

00:04:11--> 00:04:41

cry to Allah, praise Allah colau to Allah. Do whatever you would like to for the sake of Allah in that position in terms of the words you're going to say and cry to Allah. Remember, we're taught how to prostrate, but we're also taught by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we are allowed to call out to Allah in that position of prostration. So get into that position and call out to Allah. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us acceptance
