This jumuah Khutbah enlightens about salah in the light of two ayahs from Quran, one from Surah Ankaboot and the other from Surah Baqarah. The ayah from Surah Ankaboot outlines how establishing salah will protect the mankind from engaging in evil and immorality and the ayah from Surah Baqarah provides multiple solutions to protect marriage with the help of salah.

la kameena kita
all praise and thanks to Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala, who is indeed our Creator, sustainer nourisher protector and Kira. We asked him Subhana Allah to shower his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved apostle Mohammed Salah long while he will only give us a lamb, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his bath with utmost sincerity until the day of tm.
House later for law first and foremost, I advise myself and then all of you all seated here to adopt a life of taqwa and that is to fear a loss of more dialogue and to be conscious of him as a virgin during every single second of our lives if we wish to attain success in this world as well as the hereafter. maleness, the kind of more dynamic is all from the people of taqwa. I mean,
I would like to start off by translating the second words that I read at the very beginning. Allah subhanho wa Taala states in Surah to line the booth, the spider, the surah, which is an anchor booth, which is the spider he states who here la caminar keytab your opinion Sala or Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam agreed with Luma who here that which has been revealed unto you minella kita from the Quran, were up in Uppsala and established sada in salata Sangha, in fact, he will mooncup indeed, Salah indeed, prayer prevents an individual from indulging in things that are evil
and prevents an individual from indulging in immorality, whether the crew law he or Cuba. Now before I translate this part of the words, I would like to highlight that some people have a misconception because they directly translate this part of the words without any context or without any background. And they go on to state because if you were to directly track translate this particular part, what adekola he, you will translate it as the vicar of a law the remembrance of Allah is the Greatest.
And they go on to assert this misconception where they say that the vicar of Allah the remembrance of Allah is even greater than prayer. And they go on to say that scholars read this worse, every I'm sure most of you are aware that scholars read it on the pulpit towards the end one of the crew law he died about one law matters. Now, they go on to say that scholars read it, but they don't translate it. They hide something, they're concealing something and what are they concealing according to them? The scholars are considering the fact that the vicar of Allah is greater than Salah.
And then they go on to say that certain Alia of a mosque the kind of Medina the minute they reach a particular stage, they no longer need to pray to Allah, the final Mandala. They spend the whole day in Likud remembering Allah azza wa jal, so they no longer have to pray unto Allah azza wa jal, they no longer have to offer the five daily prayers, Allahu Akbar
I will translate the words but before I go to that, my question is,
don't you all agree that Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the leader of all Alia of all the friends of Allah Subhana Medina, have you ever heard of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ever, ever leaving so Allah He was the closest
allies are the most beloved unto Allah Subhana Medina, but rather we are only heard that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kept on advising the Sahaba and the oma and the oma at large to establish Salah on time. In the salata, kyneton Mini Nikita makuta. Indeed Salah has been prescribed upon the believers at appointed times. So how do we translate this far what are they called La acobot scholars have translated in two ways. Number one is that well as the crow law, and now this ayah was directed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam as I said, in the beginning was number
one adekola and O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the remembering of you, the remembering of you by Allah is greater, greater than what is greater than you remember in him in Sala
the remembering of you by Allah because when I recruit Hua means the remembrance of Allah this mobile mobile of Allah in Arabic recruit la the remembrance of Allah so the remembrance of our lives and what is the lives of a gel remembering what is Elijah Virgil praising when you make liqueur you praise someone you praising Allah Subhana morganne so the remembering of you the praising of you by Allah by the angels Alonzo Virgil praises Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in a lot of America who you saw Luna and NaVi,
the remembering of you by Allah is greater greater than what greater than you remembering Allah, Allah This is one way of translating. And the other way scholars Rahim Allah translated is that what are the cruel law he activated? Yes, the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala is greater. And sila, in and of itself is the greatest way of remembering Allah Subhana Medina, what do you do in Sora? You start off Alhamdulillah hyrum Bina me What are you doing? You remember in a mosque behind the hotel, you are in ruku. So the hanger beer azeem your incentive? So the Han Allah, Allah,
Allah tell him what are you doing throughout the Sunnah? The scholars behind hula they said that whilst you're in Salah it is actually considered makrooh to be silent, except in the situation where you are listening to the Imams recitation, you're supposed to ponder on the recital, but other than that you're not supposed to ever be quiet inshallah. Even in ruku, you're done with reading in price to the honor of your audience. Vanara James Vila has him and the mom is still in ruku you're not supposed to keep quiet you're supposed to go on with the anchor to the Hyderabad audience.
What are you going to lose for every so the handlebar a tree is being planted in your orchards in Panama, so we're supposed to keep on glorifying, praising and thanking us behind and medalla exalting advisor Virgil, so in and of itself, Salah is the greatest way of remembering the last behind the hotel in Surat, Thani. He will move to LA he Akbar, Allah
and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows all that you do.
Now coming back to the point in the selected 10 hand infection
checklist and even the Tamia rahimullah mentions in his book Memorial patella, that
the doing of good deeds mandates the leaving of wise and simple, the doing of good deeds mandates the leaving out of wife and sin and the leaving of wife and sing mandates the doing of good deeds. So he goes on to say that Salah is something so powerful, so special, that it makes an individual leave wise unseen. And it also makes an individual involved in ariba in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you might wonder, I pray so much to Allah subhanho wa Taala but then why? Why do I always feel that the devil is whispering in my mind that the devil is confusing me? Why am I always being pulled towards the abyss of sin and destruction? Why? The reason is many respected
elders and brothers in Islam is that we need to perfect our Salah. We need to perfect our prayer justice Allah Subhana Medina states in another place in the noble but I'm happy to swallow it was sadati who spa Baku de la carnitine have you to either Salatu was Salam ala Cusco protect your prayers, especially the middle prayer. Now in regard to which is the middle prayer scholars rahima whom Allah have differed, some have said it is salado Baja, some have said it is solid to Lhasa. Some have even gone on to say that it is all five prayers we don't know just like we don't know when later to recover. We cannot pinpoint exactly when later to the main night of power comes about. We
are supposed to strive all throughout the last 10 nights of Ramadan. We are supposed to perfect all
Five prayers thereby securing this special celestial booster this special preferable and middle pair.
But coming back to the beginning of the ayah half a zoo, Allah Sala one, you see this word half you do is in the scale of phylum Viola. And this entails when you translate the trade entries to individuals involved in something, say for example, yada yada, yada, yada it means to argue Giada means to argue to have a dispute, can you argue by yourself? Can you have a dispute just alone can I just argue by myself I need someone else to argue there are two people involved. So this scale have to do is either for two people to be involved. So scholars Rahim Allah explained that it also brings about something when you perfect your Salah you're also supposed to perfect your social
relationships outside further. That is one explanation. And the other explanation is that it is for emphasis that you're supposed to overly protect your Salah. And how do you do that? You do that by protecting the sharee aspects of Salah you cannot praise Allah without knowing about Salah you must study the icon of sada you need to know what is soon now what is farther, how to pray, the higher the postures what you need to read in Salah you need to study all of that and also you need to maintain you need to protect the spiritual dimension of Salah because without the spiritual dimension of Sana Salah is just dead. It will be like picking on the ground, which you and I most of
us are guilty of May Allah subhanahu wa taala forgive us and protect us. We need to protect the Sharia II perspective of Salah as well as the spiritual dimension of Salah. Just as one scholar Rahim Allah once said
that if you take the analogy of a ship, if say you're traveling on the ocean, the ship is like the sherea you need the ship to travel. The ocean is the spiritual dimension in all of our events that you need the spiritual dimension, we as human beings, we always have this vacuum, we need that spirituality in Sora. And then when you have these two elements, if you just have a boat or a ship, and if you did not have water, you'll be stuck on land, you cannot travel anywhere. On the other hand, if you have a vast ocean, you're so spiritual, but you don't know about Sharia, you cannot practice and that's when you will come to misconceptions. Like I mentioned earlier, that liquor is
better than salah and that we don't have to offer Salah. So you need these two things to go hand in hand you need to strike a balance and then you will reach the middle of the ocean where you will be able to die inside and come out with the pearls of recognizing Allah subhanho wa Taala a beautiful analogy. You need Sharia. You need the spiritual dimension and then you will reach a loss.
So my dear respected elders and others in Islam very swiftly, let me highlight something very important. The strategic placement of this ayah in Surah ALLAH hafiz Salatu was Salam in Busan. That's what I said it strikes it's very close to our social relationships, especially marriage. Let me tell you about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said a long while he was he was a very calm, easygoing person at home with his wives amongst his wives was very calm. But the minute the call for Salah was heard he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became a stranger, a complete stranger. The wives went on to say that we were it was almost as if he did not know us and we did not know Him
Allahu Akbar, he used to immediately get up and go and offer Salah.
You know why? Because look at the strategic placement of this ayah in Surah Baba. Look at the context. Allah Subhana medalla talks about the bowls. It talks about divorce, and in the middle of the ayah of divorce suddenly in the middle, this is how you do Allah salatu wa salatu salam, ala carnitine is sandwiched in the middle of
the Quran is the divine speech of Allah subhana wa Tada. So remember, there is nothing that happens. Oh, by coincidence, Oh, you know what, I just stumbled upon this. And it seems like it's a coincidence that this ayah is in this place. No. It is out of the Divine Wisdom of us behind him with Allah and there is always a strategic purpose behind an ayah coming in a particular place. It is a foreigner slaves of us behind them with Allah to deduce lessons and this is the whole point of the obscene. This is the whole point of the explanation of the Quran.
Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about DeVos and then in the middle of brings this ayah as it is a solution.
When a couple is going through a patch of trouble, when they are not seeing things through the same light when they are not seeing things eye to eye. When that emotional strain has come in between two spouses. And when they are finding things very difficult when they feel that they are not compatible for one another and when
They are considering divorce advisor Virgil talks about this idea. Remember my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, as most of us here are married and there are youngsters who are perhaps planning to get married. Divorce is not something easy. Today, wherever you look, you see couples breaking up, you see them resorting to Divorce, Divorce is a very painful resort. The last option, but still it shut is everybody was concerned with the matter starting off with the two spouses, the children, the families, Allahu Akbar, the whole society is affected by a divorce. So it is something that we as individuals must resort to as a very, very last option. We must strive to protect our
marriages. And this is why I lost behind them what dialect commands us to establish sola, how does Sara help a marriage?
Number one, Allah subhanho wa Taala is rebuking the two spouses that you must establish for Allah because the individual who does not establish Salah cannot be trusted with anything. If you don't establish Salah there is no element of trust. And this is the case many a time because we do counseling and many a time when couples are going through a bit of a problem. When we ask them about Salah it's either that their one spouse is either one spouse is lacking inshallah both of them at times don't offer their Salah on time. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is offering you a solution. Perfect your relationship with Allah and Allah azza wa jal will perfect all of your other
relationships, Allah subhanahu Medina will take care of your affairs, all of the things will fall into place, the minute you perfect your relationship with Allah Subhana Medina, so it is of utmost importance that we establish our Salah, that's number one. Number two is that it brings about discipline, it brings about discipline, just imagine if you are an individual, you look at many successful righteous individual there'll be people who made it to Sora on time with the man Gemma, just imagine you are an individual who makes it for the five times for our domestic on time with the man Gemma, just imagine how much of disciplinary bringing your life how much of time management it
will bring into your life. And this is why to run a marriage to run a family you need to be a well disciplined individual so that you can run a family number one, Allah behind him what Allah is rebuking you, because you're not establishing Salah, you're not the person who can be trusted, you must establish Salah number two it brings about discipline it brings about time management, it brings about functionality, all of these things it trains you allow, it is a complete program. Number three, very swiftly it brings about humility. It brings about humility, you see most of the time, in relationships, where there's a lot of strain.
You always find the ego in the equation, you always find pride in the equation and that's why two spouses find it at times very difficult to reconcile because of this egoistic nature. They don't want to come down from their high horses, they don't want to apologize, they don't want to forgive but then if you are a person was established, what do you do in Salah when you fall down in such other What are you doing in such that you ask the forgiveness of Allah Subhana Medina, basically you are. You are saying Yeah, Allah, I am a sinner. I am a criminal, forgive me and you are expecting the forgiveness of Allah subhanho data. So it brings about humility, it brings about the quality of
forgiving others. And if you don't forgive your own spouse, then what's the point about
the spouse who is by your side who bow you your children who cooks for you, who maintains your house keeps your house clean for you? Allah subhanho wa Taala says your answer for acabo de la if you forgive it is closer to Taka voila tenza will follow the Nabina comb and do not forget the word she will between you two do not forget the words you have your spouse. Do not forget the fact that she bore you children. She went through so many pregnancies for you.
We tend to forget all of that and you know what you're not compatible for me. So I want out of the relationship. You are affecting your children you are affecting your your family is going to be shattered that beautiful family unit, your home everything is going to go out of the window when our cancer will fall apart in a coma. Do not forget the virtue between you two.
And finally many respected elders and brothers in Islam. we as human beings, we need that rejuvenation, and Salah brings it back. So now rejuvenates you swana refreshes your spirits a lot. Look at the words of the prophets that alone while he was alive, he suddenly
While he was lm says, I find comfort with women. Women in the sense my wife and I find comfort in perfume. And finally sort of long winded wisdom said but my ultimate comfort is in Sala in another generation. The coolness of my eyes is in Salah. Look at the description. Look at the analogy. Look at the example. Look at the intense imagery in this example. But just imagine you are in the middle of a desert, there is a sandstorm all over the place. Allahu Akbar The other day I was watching a video of a sandstorm recently in Qatar. It's so scary. There's dust all over the place. Just imagine if you were in a sandstorm. It is what grains of sand stinging into your eyes. And it's so
difficult. And then suddenly, everything clears up and you stumble upon a cool spring of water, a cool pond of water and if you were to splash that water on your face, just imagine how rejuvenated how refreshed you would be. This is the analogy that you will find coolness insula, the coolness of your eyes in Sala so this refreshes the spirit. This refresher the spirit of the two spouses. It helps them to refresh themselves and get back Allahu Akbar. These are a few of the solutions that can be highlighted through Salah My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. So let us become individuals who establish Salah on time and protect our Salah happy to Allah follower that does
overly protect our Salah because the minute we protect this relationship with Allah Subhana Medina, the minute we repair this relationship with Allah azza wa jal, Allah subhanho wa Taala will protect all of our other affairs and Allah Subhana Medina will make everything fall into place beautifully in sha Allah, Allah May Allah subhana wa Jalla forgive all of our sins except our good deeds. And just as how united as here, this beautiful Friday afternoon many Unitas in the gardens of genuine Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I mean we're further away and come to the left behind
