your brothers and sisters when and juicy. The person who murdered on Bobby alone tada on when he planned his scheme or decided that he was going to murder on he decided to choose the time, the best time where the people's concentration would be focused away. And he decided to choose the time of salon. And the salon where the people's concentration would be the strongest was in the fetcher and when it was dark, and so he chose that time, a Buddha. In a nested in neverwet, he had chosen a pillar to the side of the head of the place where the man prays where the alarm was coming, the belief of the Muslim mean, was coming for federal prayer to lead the congregation.
And he stayed there all night waiting in the darkness. And he had to stay there during the night because the people would then fill in the first row the second row and fill in the rows from there as our model the long line who would recite and it's narrated, that are not about the long line who would choose long sewers in the federal prayer so that the people and the Muslims of Medina could come and be able to join in the Salah. So he would read very long sutras in the first round.
And as the the Salah started our model the alohar who began to recite.
Medusa came out from the corner, and they say also that the fact that someone was walking in front of them wasn't something strange for them because very often the masjid would fill up. And people would have to go by the Imam and pray beside the Imam Abu Medusa one time or the Longhorn who with a dagger that was poisoned, stood right in front of Ramallah, viola horn who, and slit open his stomach during the Salah.
Now there's some very important points that happened after that. I'm about the alohar who screamed from the pain. But notice and the narrations that we remember that Armando Dillon is the person that died but actually seven Sahaba died in that same incident, because when he turned around, the front row was so packed together, that there was no way he could escape except through the Muslims. And so he began stabbing left and right killing another Muslim after a Muslim as he tried to make his way out until they had thrown a cloth over him about the line who didn't shut down the salon. He didn't stop the salon. He continued leading the prayer. And as some people may say that bleeding breaks
your your will do we have here the example of our model of the alohar and who, who was bleeding profusely, but continued his salah and continued to pray. Some people thought that that pause that he that he had made a mistake in his citation, but he hadn't. He had completed his Salah, and by that time abou and Medusa, someone had thrown a cloth over him, and that knowing that he was captured, he took the same dagger and killed himself and committed suicide and our model of the alohar and who later passed away after that, because of those wounds. The importance of Salah cannot be overstated in Islam. If you see the Hadith talking about the Pillars of Islam, the things by
which Islam stands, and by which if they're broken, the Islam collapses on that person. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said booney al Islam Allah hums Shahada en la ilaha illa Allah that there's there's no God, that there's no God but Allah and Neela sort of learn that I'm the Messenger of Allah, what you call them Salah what Mohamed Salah to establish the salah coming immediately after the toe hate of a person.
And you'll see that in the most majestic circumstances does Allah subhana wa tada speak about the salaah for when all the all the rulings were revealed on Earth to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, Allah chose the israa chose the Mirage
of the Prophet sallallahu sent him to the heavens when he came closest to Allah Subhana Allah Donna, and at that point, Allah Subhana Donna made the Salah farther than compulsory upon the Muslims and reading the Quran in Surah Taha when Allah subhana wa tada speaks to Mussolini's Salaam,
and speaks directly to Moosa, and these are the words of Allah subhanaw taala to to Moosa what Anna don't do cafestol Mia Lima you ha in any and Allahu La Ilaha Illa NSR Bodine for our Bodine name is swana that easy carry. Lots of Connaughton is telling Moosa that there is no god but me. And these are the words that Allah said to Moosa five would mean so worship me, what often is solidly the key and establish the prayer for my remembrance.
And you'll see the one Allah subhana wa tada describes the believers, such as in Surah Mino, you'll see consistently that one of the greatest characteristics of the believers because you see many groups, people trying to increase the man of their followers and many workers, people, Muslim activists working to increase the man of their people. Look at the movement and how Allah subhanaw taala describes them. But if let me know that the believers are successful, the moon, Allah subhanaw taala doesn't just leave you there, that you go and figure out what a moment is. Allah subhanaw taala then describes the characteristics one after the other, a Latina whom feasts Allah to him
on those who concentrate in their salon, those in their Salah, those who concentrate and you'll notice here that it's not a question whether they do solo or not to be a moment the person has to do their salon, but Allah subhanaw taala says one step more than that, it is those that concentrate in their salon.
And the importance of the Salah comes in Habib after Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Why don't I use Alola Abdullah and who? Yeoman piano masala. The first question that the person will be asked on the Day of Judgment is the salah and Subhana Allah, some people maybe in the university, you try to get a cheat sheet or if there's the day before the exam, if you could get the questions that are going to be asked, you would go and prepare for that. here Allah subhanaw taala is telling you the question that's going to be asked, and you know the question and you know you're going to be tested, Allah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the first question question
number one, you pull down the paper, and it says question number one, how was your solo? For incana higher on that if it's good, then everything after that should good you should pass your your complete exam on the Day of Judgment. And if it's bad, then everything after that should be bad. And in reality, when a person has the horseshoe and increases his awareness of Allah subhanaw taala during the Salah when they leave the Salah, as some of the other men of the past have said that they'll enter salah and they feel sadness that the Salah is going to come to end soon. Whereas when a person hasn't reached that level, they're concerned that the salon hoping that the salon will end
soon. But these are people who have understood the Sala having the sadness in their heart that they're in the third rock or the fourth and their connection and their discussion with Allah subhana wa tada and their prayer to Allah is going to complete and so when the person comes to that lofty position of his nearness to Allah subhanaw taala in the Salah. After he completes the Salah, he feels ashamed and shy, to go back to the low position that he may have done the synonymy he may have done before, that's Allah. And that's the kind of spirit that the solar increases in a person as they go from Fiji, to the to Lhasa to refer to the Isha Allah subhana wa tada says, in solid 10 and
that Verily, the Salah forbids a person from the fascia and the Mancha.
But you'll see in our community of mousseline and this is something that remains with the community that so long, there's so many bid out that may come in, but the one thing that remains consistent is the salon amongst the Muslims. And if you go to other religions, and you see that the way they worship, you go from one church to the next. And you'll never find two people worshipping in the same way or two churches worshiping the same way. But when you see the Muslims you can go from here to any country in the world, and people will be performing the salon.
But in that community of saline, you have some hazy actions that need to be corrected. For example, some of us don't concentrate on what we're saying during the summer semester.
speed when they pray, some wonder with their gaze during the soda, the number of Raka you see by the third Raka that many of the people in the in the gym I don't know if it's the third rocker or the fourth. And for some, the dunya hugs their heart, they may concentrate more on what the their groceries than what they're saying in the salon. And sometimes before the man even says a law, the person's already speeding into that next position, beating the man.
And if you compare this to those who came before us, or B einheiten Rahim Allah tala, they said from his consistent lowering of his gaze in salah and outside of Salah people used to think he was blind. People used to think he was blind. He was a student of Abdullah and the Messiah was about the alohar and who and when he would walk without glutton, and Massoud or he would come out of the lagoon Massoud servant would say to him, your blind friend is coming. Your blind friend is coming and when he would hear this Arabia Rahim Allah he would smile. He wasn't blind, but it was his concentration and thinking of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Bukhari and Muslim Abu huraira the Allahu taala who
narrates that a man came into the masjid and he prayed to Iraq guys and then after praying the two doctors he came to the prophets of Allah on he was sent him and said it said Imani Prophet sallallahu Sallam said while he was said on it Jaffa Salif inoculum to Sunday, he said go back and pray for you have not prayed. So the man went back he traded to Iraq guys and he came back to the Prophet said to them why they come and sit down into Jefferson leaf in economic to slowly go back and pray for you haven't prayed. The man went back and he came back a third time said I'm on a quantity Come and sit down. The prophet SAW the law they sent him said it is Jeff for suddenly for
in the kingdom to suddenly go back and pray for you haven't prayed. And this hadith is known as animasi salata, the person who didn't know how to pray, is the Hadith of the person that didn't know how to pray. And in every book of fic, if it talks about Kitab ossola this hadith has to be there. And Subhanallah just because of the mistake of this one person, you'll see the entire oma learned how to make Salah from the way the Prophet said a lot I sent him explained it. He said to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, he said, let us innovate Aha, he said, I do not i'm not capable of doing anything better than the Salah filing. So teaching and the Prophet said a lot is
seldom said either quantity lasala for Captain, he said if you stand up for Salah, then say Allahu Akbar, then recite for correct methods that are like a minimum Quran, then recite what comes easy to have the Quran so Mirka had taught them in Iraq and then you go into the cooler until you become firm in your core, some some comb or some material or standard hotman in Parliament until you stand up firming your standing the messenger then go down for such that until you are firm in your sector, then come up and down and then do that in your entire salon.
And so like today, we want to take just a few moments and go back and try to correct our Salah just like this person was taught how to correct their salon.
Why do we come to the masjid and why do we come to perform the salon with the congregation, the person comes to the masjid to come closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. But you'll see that that initial intention of coming and being with the with the brothers and being able to perform the Salah with them and suddenly that person might lose it with his wandering heart or a wandering gaze or his speed. And so the person if he's coming all the way for the Salah that he has to make sure that he's taking full advantage of that salah and making sure he's doing his best to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala because verily the province of Milan is and I'm told us that a person will perform
his Salah, and not all of it is written for him, meaning that a person will perform salah and actually what he his actual Salah was only one 10th of what he did, or one, one fourth or one third or one half as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
in the lab or in La Jolla, they are humanists Allah, He said barely a man will leave a salah and nothing and only a 10th of that Salah is written for him or only a nine or only an eighth, Orleans sixth are only a fifth or only a fourth or only a third. And this is all dealing with the concentration that a person puts into his soul on
earth man even heavy data by him a whole lot of data. He says that I've never prayed a Salah to Allah subhana wa tada except that after the Salah, I've asked forgiveness from Allah subhana wa tada for my shortcomings in that sada
we learned from the sin that someone who
shortchanges his Salah is a thief. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the evil is thief is the person who steals from their salon. And the people the companions asked him or messenger of Allah, how does someone steal from their salah and the prophets have a long line to send him said, you're a sinner Roku aha well as to do the hard work
that the person doesn't perfect the Roku and doesn't perfect his to do and doesn't perfect his concentration in the salon.
And because of the speed that a person may
apply to Salah it may become as if he's acting like an animal during the Salah, you'll see many Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would forbid someone acting like an animal during this law such as you may know in the sense that a person was forbidden to put their hands down on the ground. Because it may be imitating a dog in the way a dog sits or the way a person goes down not to imitate like a camel. And the Prophet said a lot a cent and speaking of the speed that a person may apply, the prophet said a lot isn't and forbade that a person should Peck in Salah like a crow should Peck like a crow, you'll see a crow maybe there's a piece of bread on the ground, he walked
up to the bread and peck pick it up and then back up. And that's how a person when they apply their speed, they may go up and down in their Salah pecking and not fully concentrating and perfecting the record and there's
probably a long line. He wants to do it on the on the member and he addressed the people speaking about this exact issue. And then he said that verily Emanuel grow old in Islam and not perfected and completed a single rocket to Allah subhana wa Tada. And they asked him, How is that for me? And then he said that he doesn't perfect its concentration, nor does he perfect his humbleness in that regard. And nor does he perfect, his focus on a law's origin.
And once motto Phil carefree rockin Mahalo to Allah, he was standing with two students, some of his senior students, and one of the students they were arguing of who would lead the prayer.
And so the students said, you lead the issue of prayer. And he said finally that Okay, I'll lead the issue prayer on condition that you lead the federal prayer on condition that you lead the federal prayer, our motto for Kofi Rahim Allah Tada. He heard this, he said, Subhan Allah, if you think that you're going to be alive to fidget prayer, that you haven't perfected your Salah. If you think that you're going to be alive to fed your prayer, you haven't perfected yourself, of course, and even Muhammad Rahim, Allah tala, he was the nephew of eyeshadow, viola Han. He said that when he was young, and every time he will go out to the marketplace, he would always stop by at his Auntie's
house, I should have the Alon and he would ask her if she needed something from the market. And he would go and get it for him. So he says that one day, he came at the time of loha, which is the time between fetcher and the third time, around 10 o'clock, or something similar to that. He came in around at that time, and he found that he showed up the Aloha on her insula. He found her in salon and he says that I sat there listening to her as she recited over and over again kolu Tada the words of Allah subhana wa tada Paulo in
pabu Fie, Lena mushfiqur bien, then en La La La Nina. Well upon
that I shoulda de la Han, who is reciting the verse part of saying, a four time in a public arena much 15 these are the people of gentlemen saying that a four timer in the past days, in those days that we used to live on Earth, that we were afraid with our families that we left our lived our lives in fear that Allah subhanaw taala may not accept this from us. Vietnam was 15 for men, Allah horning. So Allah subhanaw taala placed his favor upon us well upon
and saved us from the torment of the hellfire. I shadow the line would recite this over and over and over again, invoking Allah subhanho wa Taala and crying as a person, Rahim Allah was sitting there, her nephew, listening to her recite like this, and she kept resetting it over and over and over again, that finally he said, let me go to the marketplace because I don't know if she's gonna finish now. So he went to the marketplace, did his work in the marketplace, and came hours later. That day is sort of the Aloha and he says when I came back to visit her, she was there again, in the same player prayer place, reciting the same verse, invoking to a loss of Hano Donna and crying for the
Allahu taala on her
How do we concentrate in Salah. This is something that many people ask. And the sun has many, many ways that teaches us how to concentrate in our Salah. And so from that we learned from the Sunnah, that we should come early for the Salah, and prepare ourselves to concentrate.
We see from the center that when the event gives the event that the person should repeat what the event is saying. So from the very beginning, the person should be listening to the event, and paying attention from the moment that the Select time comes in.
And we should also we realize or receive from the center, that when the event is finished, the person should make a draw after that the supplication after the event, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the hour to lay your rod benavente will come down to that dinner at any comma, meaning that there are a person's prayer isn't refused between the event and a comma. And so for a person to be able to make during that time, he's most likely in the masjid waiting, he heard that he's now early for Salah waiting for the comma trying to take advantage of that time to make that.
And the Prophet said a lot is and also taught us to do our will do properly to prepare properly for Scylla. And not just a speedy will do. And the Prophet said a lot is and also taught us that if you wouldn't want to put a hardship on the oma, he would have commanded them to use a miswak for every will do or in another narration for every salon. So we see here that the person's using miswak doing will do properly repeating what the admin says coming early to Silla, all in preparation. By that time, the person would probably be right behind the man and get a very important spot and a very important time where he can prepare himself to concentrate.
We should aim in our salon to get the entire reward that a person shouldn't be happy with 110 of their salon, but they should go for the full reward of the salon bobak even hear him a whole lotta he says I saw how he even savate Institute. He said I saw Habib in savate Institute. And he said if you saw him Institute, you would think that he was dead because of his concentration in that situation. You would think that he had frozen, he'd become frozen in that situation.
Thirdly, we should contemplate the pet and the car that are being recited in the salon. And you should think about every area that you're reciting. And it's it's sad and disheartening that you'll see many people if you ask them, What are you studying in the university? Most people are studying computers, or that's the thing to go into. And I'm sure there's people studying other things. But the people if you ask them about cobalt, a plus plus they have manuals this big manual after manual, they understand the language of pluses and minuses. But when it comes to the Quran, Alhamdulillah hyrum belisle, I mean, they may live their life, 30 years, 40 years, 50 or 60 years, and they still
don't understand what sorts of fetta means, even though they may read it how many times maybe 17 times in a day, but they'll be pleased with themselves or they let it go that they don't understand what these risks are meaning when a person comes up semi Allah who the man Hamida when the person gets up from a record, he may live his entire life and never know what sent me on loan even hamidah means and all it takes is just a question brother what the seminar long and the person knows the answer may take a click on the internet to find the translation of these things and learn about there's a lot that they're doing every day, but the person just becomes negligent of this and lets
life slip away and just lets the river pass them by Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, a fella Barun alko
Won't they contemplate the Quran for the Quran wasn't meant as some ritual that a person just recites without understanding, but it's meant for the person's contemplation and to live the Quran. And in another verse, Allah subhanaw taala says it and who la kam OVA rock that a book that we reveal down to you MOBA con, bless it, and indeed many people are reading it for blessings in the Quran is mobarak. But it doesn't end there. Allah subhanaw taala then teaches us why he sent down this blessing book, he tapped one and then who in a MOBA raccoon, Leah who
so that it's versus would be contemplated. Allah subhanaw taala says why this blessing book was revealed down so that it's verse it would be contemplated and implemented.
We should pray in congregation we see this is a very serious matter coming in the sun. And you will see something like the Prophet said a lot I sent him like we just said about the miswak that not to put a burden on the on
On that he would have commanded them to use the miswak at every silver. On the other side when the Prophet said a lot is and and puts an order, and he is the merciful Salalah Han he was sending them. Allah subhanaw taala describes them as a mercy to humanity. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that I wish that I could get someone else to lead the prayer. I wish that I could get someone so that he could do a mission. He said, then I would go to those houses of those people who did not come to pray in congregation did not come to the masjid for Salah, and then I would burn down their houses upon
compare this to the verse of the talk about the mercy of the prophets of the loudness and if he was going to do something such as this, then how serious is the matter? Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran, and this is for the men, for the men coming to the congregation. What LP masala established the prayer, what it was like,
and give this a can pay there's a cap. And then Allah Subhana Allah says, while Carol murottal walk
in and do two core to the bowing with those who do battling with those who do core and Ls 100 already said establish the Scylla pay there's a cat and how should you do that Salah you should do to cool with those people who do to core meaning in the masjid, praying with the congregation for Allah subhanaw taala didn't command us to pray by ourselves, but that we should pray in the congregation.
And we shouldn't miss. We learn from the sinner that we shouldn't miss our knuffle Salah the sinners that come before the salons and after they're like the fortress for the person. Some people will pray that for Raka and then just go away with that. But when those soon if a person just held tightly to his center prayers, you can imagine that he would never lose his father. If a person was so dedicated to assume that before as soon after, he would never lose the fight he would be protected in between. But when a person drops those sydnor prayers and these are called pseudonym aka things the Prophet sallallahu Sallam never gave a synonym aka that it's you know that there's
emphasis that he never missed these even if he was traveling he would never miss his with Ursula is with her suddenness and if and if he was traveling he would never miss the to Iraq as a fetcher such as this. We should not speed up our salah and we should pay attention to what we're doing in the salon. Even we're blocking a whole lot of data he says I saw so Fianna throw to him a whole lot of time at the Kaaba and after mother. He got up to pray to rock guys. And he says well law he by the time the event came for Asia, Savannah felt he hadn't finished his first rocker in those two lockers. And he had prayed for multiple Asia, just concentrating on that one rocker.
We should remember that Allah subhanaw taala responds to us and Allah subhanaw taala will continue to listen to us so long as our heart is focused on Allah. If our heart turns away from Allah Subhana Allah has no need to further pay attention to that person's heart. If the person's heart is away, as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam showed us in Hadith, and also the other Headey is where the Prophet said a lot a centum said when the person stands up for prayer, or sign Hadith klutzy. When the Prophet said a lot I sent him said that Allah subhanaw taala said, for some to Salah to benei obey naughtiness Fein for the abdomen said that I divided the Salah, into two parts, and for between me
and my slave into my slave is what he asked for. And then as the Hadith continues, that when the slave says al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen, Allah subhanaw taala says hamadani that my slave has praised me as a person concentrate. If you go back to this Hadith, and concentrate on what Allah subhanaw taala saying back to you, you'll pay attention to what you're saying. And so
we should pray with a barrier. A sutra the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught us that if you pray that you should put a sutra and draw near to it, meaning that when a person tries crossing in front of you, there should be something in front such as a chair, or maybe you're praying behind someone and then if someone tries passing the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that he should fight them or put your hand out like this, so that when the person's crossing that he doesn't disrupt your Salah, some people may pray at the back of the messenger with a complete open area. And you can imagine how away that is from concentration as opposed to someone who draws closer, finds himself a sutra and prays
and make sure no one goes in front of him. We should seek refuge from the Shaitaan when we go for our our salon,
as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that there's a devil, or by the name of hunza that comes to the people during their Salah to distract them from the Salah. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us that if he comes to you, you should turn to your left side with your head and spit thrice with dry
Videos such as this,
such as that too, and say our Double Diamond shaytani r rajim. I seek refuge in Allah from
shaytani outcast. And this is when a person has whispers this is what they should do is taught to us by the prophets of Allah honey and Sunnah.
And in conclusion, when we get up for Salah we should pray as if it's our last prayer as Abu Bakar moosonee Rahim Allah tala. He said if you want your prayer and this is taken from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he said Salah salata more, or slowly salata moda, pray as if it's your farewell prayer. I will book it and was in Iraq mahalo Tada. He says, If you want your Salah to benefit you, if you want it to have benefit in this life, and the hereafter for cool then say that also levada that I'll never be able to pray another prayer after this. In Allaha microbiologically when centimeter corba went hand in fascia even among Korean yeah tocumen Allah come to the Quran for
the Kuru La La theme as Kuru Kuru Allah near me here is it cool political Allah Akbar. Allahu Allah.
