Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh This is a brand new q&a episode. And for this video I received a question recently across social media I think it's best to read it off the platform

00:00:14--> 00:00:25

as salaam alaikum. Chef, could you please highlight the importance of Sunnah prayers? Do we really have to pray them? Are we sinful if we avoid them and how many units are they if we are to pray

00:00:27--> 00:00:55

this Miller here rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam. We begin by praising Allah we ask him for his help, we ask him to open those of beneficial knowledge for all of us. And we ask him to send his choices to blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity under the DFP ama.

00:00:56--> 00:01:20

My dear brothers and sisters, when you look closely at the teachings of our beautiful Dean, we see that along with every followed, along with every obligatory deed that has been prescribed upon us, whether it be the compulsory Sala the compulsory prayer, whether it be the compulsory, fasting compulsory,

00:01:21--> 00:02:18

or compulsory Hajj, you see a corresponding method or optional act that has been legislated by Allah subhanho Adana. So all these aforementioned obligations are accompanied by similar optional acts. And these have been legislated to compensate for any flaw, or to rectify any discrepancy that may occur in the form of the Act. And this is deduced through a narration that has been captured by the famous companion Abu huraira or the Allahu anhu, who stated the prophets of Allah Islam is reputed to have said, the first thing about which the people and I'm paraphrasing the hadith of Kamala is that was Salaam The first thing about which the people will be called to account from their actions

00:02:18--> 00:02:33

on the day of the AMA, on the day of judgment is a Salah prayer. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all to offer our prayer, our Salah with excellence upon excellence. So our Lord, the Almighty will say to the angels,

00:02:34--> 00:03:25

even though Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best he knows better, he will command the angels look into the prayer of my slave and see whether he has offered it perfectly, or see whether he has offered it completely or incompletely as to whether it is complete or whether it is defective, if it is complete, then the Salah will be recorded completely it will be recorded perfect. If it is on the other hand flawed or defective, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will come on the angels see if there are some optional prayers offered by my slave. And if there are optional prayers to his credit, Allah subhanho wa Taala will say compensate the obligatory prayer by the optional prayer for my

00:03:25--> 00:04:15

slave compensate the flaws the discrepancies in the obligatory prayer by the optional prayers that my slave is offered and likewise all the actions will be considered. Similarly this hadith is recorded in the book of Imam Abu Dawood Rahim Allah. So based on this media brothers and media sisters, we need to give utmost importance to their Sunnah prayers that are in place. So as the question of the questionnaire, it is sooner. So, if you perform it you are rewarded, and if you omit it, you are not going to be considered sinful. Unlike the case with far the prayers no further prayers if you do it, yes, you are rewarded, but if you leave it, then you are sinful there is no

00:04:15--> 00:04:34

room for us to leave our fart prayers. But on the other hand, the Sunnah prayers, they are of a lesser degree when it comes to obligation, but as you can see, it is of utmost importance that we fulfill it because when you when you look around most of us,

00:04:35--> 00:04:42

those who do not offer their far the prayers May Allah subhanho wa Taala help them to offer them because you

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

that is something that you have to offer. But when it comes to the Sunnah prayers, a lot of us the bulk of us, we offer our father the prayers, but we do not give enough importance we did not attach enough importance to the Sunnah prayers

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

and this is why it is important that we

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

Clear this awareness that we have a beautiful Hadith where the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reputed to have said

00:05:08--> 00:05:58

Allah will build a house in the garden in Geneva for whoever is diligent in observing 12 sundara cat This is the sooner not robotic. These are the sooner a cat the prophets lie Selim gave a lot of importance to so for whoever is diligent in observing 12 sundara cat and they are as follows for a cat before salado so we start off with Serato vahagn you afford a cat four units of prayer before so out of the house and then you have to after salado her and then you have slaughtered Margaret so salata acid, we will discuss it in just a bit. So start with mercury, you have to after serata Mercury, two units of prayer after slaughter mcrypt and then to after slotless Asia and to before

00:05:58--> 00:05:59

slaughter fetcher

00:06:00--> 00:06:47

once again, let's start off with Serato have, you have four units of prayer before Serato 202 after Serato her so six units there, too after Margaret 10 eight, two after slaughter Ayesha 10 and two before the dawn prayer before slaughter fetcher totals up to 12 as per this particular Hadith which is an authentic one and it is recorded in the book of a mama tirmidhi Rama hula and other books as well. So from this Howdy, you see my dear brother, my dear sister by offering these 12 units of prayer, you are following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you are rewarded immensely by Elias imagine

00:06:48--> 00:07:04

just imagine every every single day 12 minutes of prayer and you are securing residences for yourself in the lofty and beautiful garden of our maker. Now as for salat, Lhasa?

00:07:06--> 00:07:10

In regards to Serato the answer you don't have a routine

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

sooner, but

00:07:14--> 00:07:22

it is most to have it is highly recommended. That one prays for units of prayer before they ask for prayer.

00:07:24--> 00:08:02

Again, when you look at these for a cat, they are of a lesser reward and significance in when you compare them to the 12 sunon robotic that we just discussed these for a cat before so the answer. They are highly recommended. The highly recommended and I'm going to mention the Hadeeth in regards to them the highly recommended but when you compare them to the sooner they are proactive. Okay, as we as we mentioned at the beginning, you have to file the prayers which are right at the top. And then after the fight of the prayers you have the sooner or robotic. And after the sooner robotic you have these four I had these four units of prayer

00:08:03--> 00:08:44

before Sonata Lhasa. Now in regards to these four units. We have a hadith where the prophets that along Mali various enemies reported to have said, Rahim Allah, may Allah have mercy. Look, looking at the brother media sister who is making the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know a lot of us, we tend to be very happy when someone makes for us. And you have people you know, when they come to visit us, they would say, Chef, please make me Please pray for my health. Please pray for this. Please pray for that. You know, and and we're very happy when someone makes a draft. Like I said earlier, here in this head if you are observing that it's just not any ordinary

00:08:44--> 00:08:49

individual who is making. This is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Prophet of Allah.

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

Will his daughters be turned away?

00:08:54--> 00:09:40

The best of creation, the greatest of them all the most beloved unto Allah subhanho wa Taala. This prophet of Allah is making the ayah he's saying, Rahim Allah, may Allah have mercy. May Allah have mercy upon the one who prays for a cat four units before the asset of prayer, how long is it going to take for us to offer four units of prayers. And by offering those four units of prayer, you come under this beautiful canopy this beautiful day out the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you are securing the mercy of Allah. Therefore don't let go of it media brothers media sisters, this hadith to is recorded by Amanda tirmidhi Rahim Allah in his book and it is an

00:09:40--> 00:09:41

authentic hadith.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

Now, in regards to all of these voluntary prayers, you have to understand that as per the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, these four cat four unit prayers are supposed to be offered to

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

at a time, for example, if you were to take the four units that I was just talking about, so that

00:10:06--> 00:10:20

now we are familiar with Southall as being a player, where you have to the showerheads, yes, but one asleep when I said asleep, but I mean is a Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah you conclude your prayer with the fourth unit.

00:10:21--> 00:11:00

But with the Sunnah prayers, it is as per the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Uma Shafi Rahim Allah highlights this Imam Muhammad Hamble. Rahim Allah highlights this, that they are supposed to be offered two at a time. So the four units before select lacer you will pray two units and then conclude the two units by giving your tasleem A salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah. And then you will stand up for the next two units and conclude those two units as well with a disclaimer saramonic bajo de la Santa Monica de la and then you will go on to offer your slicer. I hope it's clear. So with that we conclude this video we pray that Allah

00:11:00--> 00:11:32

subhanho wa Taala helps all of us to adhere very firmly and strongly to the sunon urawa taib. May Allah help us to offer them on time metalizer which will help us to adhere to the beautiful teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive all of our sins, may he accept our good deeds, and may He admit us into His beautiful and lofty garden. I mean, I mean, Russia and hamdulillah hero behind I mean, just like Kamala Hara, said Mr. Lee Kuan Rahmatullahi wa barakato
