00:00:04--> 00:00:07

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:09--> 00:00:11

smilla rahmanir rahim

00:00:13--> 00:00:15

al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:00:16--> 00:00:32

wa sallallahu taala Allah shortfill MBA you will mursaleen Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala early he will be here he marine was standing there be something that he learned he Isla yo Medina Amar buried

00:00:34--> 00:00:47

as always and forever We begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala we seek His mercy, his forgiveness, his guidance, His love, His protection, his security in this dunya

00:00:49--> 00:01:04

and we testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah subhanho wa Taala and we further testify that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala early he was sahibi he was Salim is indeed his servant and injure.

00:01:06--> 00:01:30

My brothers and sisters, I invite you all to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala the fear that he is most deserving of you and do not return to Allah. Do not return to Allah subhanahu wa taala unless you are in the state of submission unless you are in the state of taqwa unless you are in the state of Islam.

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

And as to what follows Are you hubbub

00:01:36--> 00:02:09

on this evening, once again, we have the glorious opportunity to once again come together in such a blessed place, a house of worship. And we have left our homes, our busy lives, and especially the weather. We have left all of this and we have come to the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And at this time I asked a Lhasa ludgershall deDE reward us for our efforts we put in this dunya for his sake supine, who What are either

00:02:11--> 00:02:39

for I can understand personally how difficult it is, or how difficult it can sometimes get to even come to a Masjid. And listen to a lecture, especially in this part of the world. From where I've been spending the last seven years in Medina, to go to a lecture means you put your thumb on, come out of your house and you walk two minutes to a Masjid, and you have the machete are there.

00:02:40--> 00:03:32

And it's sunny, it's always plus 30. And you'll never have to worry about catching a cab, you'll have a car, or somebody will come pick you up or it's just walking distance. And so things become very, very easy. When it comes to audible and not like here, it takes me a half an hour to get here. And then it's cold, and I don't even know jacket. So all of this thing are all part of the struggle that we face. In seeking knowledge, as one of the sons refused to say, anybody who wishes to seek a path of knowledge, let him put on his metal shoes. And by this meaning, let him prepare to walk a road of harsh hardship, a road of difficulty, let him be prepared or prepare himself to feel pain.

00:03:33--> 00:03:45

Even to learn the simplest things in this religion, you need to sacrifice pain and you need to struggle as the LMR have a very famous statement

00:03:46--> 00:03:53

that whomsoever struggles, in the path of in the path of seeking knowledge.

00:03:54--> 00:04:08

This person is called America. And this is a type of person who is constantly struggling to get the constantly going through pain, constantly going through obstacle after obstacles.

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

But after all of this for in America,

00:04:14--> 00:04:42

that after every struggle and pain, there comes ease and this same person becomes emotionally for at the end. He becomes a leader, she becomes a leader. They become a person of m and in sha Allah, they have made their path and their road easier to the ultimate goal and that is paradise. And may Allah subhanahu wa taala allow us to enter his paradise

00:04:44--> 00:04:54

or you have a whole lot this evening. We have the opportunity to entertain a very, very large topic.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

And it is a topic that if only one hears

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

The name of the topic right away they can learn how enormous and how vast this topic is,

00:05:06--> 00:05:09

of a Sala, our prayer

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

a Sala

00:05:13--> 00:05:22

its importance in our life, and how integral this type of a battery is in our life.

00:05:23--> 00:05:36

It is the sole purpose of why we live in the studio, we live in this dunya for the better, and from the most important or the bad in which we illustrate in our life is a Sala.

00:05:38--> 00:05:59

In this evening's discussion, we will try to focus on a few main categories and I do this because I noticed that there are some brothers who write and in order for these brothers to follow along, and at the same time, keep their notes organized. The first point that we want to discuss with you in sha Allah

00:06:00--> 00:06:11

is a me it'll feel called to earn was sooner to Saha, the importance of Allah in the Quran, and in the authentic sooner.

00:06:12--> 00:06:14

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

after sorbitol Fatiha

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

after sorbitol fatty have begins

00:06:22--> 00:06:45

by speaking about a Salah in salt Al Baqarah in the very few first verses of Surah Baqarah after Alif Lam Meem Valley can kita boo louder you Buffy in this book in this port and there is no doubt who the limit tapping it is a guidance for them tapping those who fear Allah azza wa jal

00:06:47--> 00:07:04

How do we know who they are? Allah continues soprano who Watada la mattina Allah Xena you mean una bella hijab? When you pee Muna Sala right away, they are the ones who believe in the unseen believe in the hijab.

00:07:05--> 00:07:49

And they are also the ones who established their prayers. They are the ones who pray allatheena you know when a bit of hype were up more than a sada established their prayers. One of the best ways to understand por en if you study to see you, one of the best ways to understand or an is try to understand why Allah subhanho wa Taala uses specific words to describe an action. For example, Allah says in this ayah and over 65 yet in Nepal Anna like our like this, Allah sees established prayers. Allah doesn't say just go and pray.

00:07:50--> 00:07:59

Allah says establish it why ecommerce Allah up masala Aquino salam, why this particular word,

00:08:00--> 00:08:39

as soon as your prayers you see when somebody establishes something, it is firm and it is very difficult for somebody to come and make changes to something that has been established. This method here is established and there is a solid foundation that this Masjid here will remain here. It is a building a structure with pillars etc It is established and it will remain here. And such is how Allah azzawajal expects us with our Sala established establish it as part of your life.

00:08:40--> 00:08:44

Nobody should ever wake up

00:08:45--> 00:08:50

except that they should be of those who establish their prayers.

00:08:51--> 00:09:26

As little Sol sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us in an authentic hadith, what is between us and them? a sauna, meaning what is between us the Muslim moon and then the disbelievers is a Salah. This is one of the main criterias that differentiate the Muslims from everyone else is we pray. We wake up we pray. We walk we pray. We sit we pray. We go to sleep we pray

00:09:27--> 00:09:32

all throughout our lifetime and our purpose in this dunya is already bad we pray.

00:09:34--> 00:09:44

And then another Hadith, though Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us bonyen Islam, Allah Hobbs. This religion here

00:09:45--> 00:09:49

is upheld by five things five pillars.

00:09:51--> 00:09:54

The first one is as we all know the Shahada.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

The second pillar is a Sala

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

is to establish your Sala.

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

Now why does the Shahada come before a Salah?

00:10:07--> 00:10:18

Because without the Shahada, there is nothing else. You can't pray without having a proper creed or a proper Akita and this is understood.

00:10:19--> 00:10:21

Now is it enough for somebody to say

00:10:23--> 00:10:29

I have the right Arpita makeda sound I believe in Quran and Sunnah, but he's never prayed

00:10:30--> 00:10:31

or he doesn't pray

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

this person's Arpita

00:10:35--> 00:10:43

because they're actually actions don't illustrate what is in the heart than their Arpita even becomes Baldwin

00:10:45--> 00:11:00

in another Hadeeth that are Sol sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us Hello We're in a field just study model. Either solo hat solid hi Jessica kulu what either facilidad foster kulu Allah wa hill

00:11:02--> 00:11:09

there is a piece of flesh or a piece of meat in the body. If it is pure,

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

if it is pure and clean,

00:11:14--> 00:11:17

then everything in the body will be pure and clean.

00:11:18--> 00:11:45

Meaning even your actions all will be pure and clean. But if this particular flesh or piece of meat is filthy, or dirty, then the rest of your body the rest of your actions will be filthy and dirty. What is that piece of meat? The heart. The heart is the soul foundation of our Nia of our intention.

00:11:46--> 00:12:25

And how you know when somebody is sincere that Allah tells us this, that how you know when somebody isn't is sincere to Allah azzawajal and they have a sincere heart at their actions. Look at them pray, look at them perform hajj, look at them in their ibadah and this is one of the signs you will know that somebody has a clean and sincere heart. Listen to their words. Do they speak the truth about themselves and those around them? Do they have good luck with themselves with their families and the community? All of these?

00:12:26--> 00:12:29

Prove when someone is sincere.

00:12:30--> 00:12:39

We continue and we speak about some of the prophets and messengers of Allah azza wa jal Ibrahim alayhi salatu wa sallam.

00:12:40--> 00:12:59

Ibrahim is the father of all the prophets that came after him. He's the father of all prophets. And when Ibrahim was building the carrabba he was making a duel or B Gianni Maki masala to women jewelry Yeti or Taco Bell.

00:13:01--> 00:13:04

He was making dua to Allah azza wa jal.

00:13:05--> 00:13:16

He was saying to him, Oh Allah make me of those who establish prayers and also make my children of those who established prayers. Once again.

00:13:18--> 00:13:31

Pay attention to the words of this ayah and why Allah azza wa jal structured this ayah the way it is, Ibrahim is speaking in such a way. It's as if he is saying

00:13:32--> 00:13:51

make me of those who are better than me. Make me of the of the people who pray make me amongst them. It's as if these people who pray are better than him. And this is him alayhi salatu was Salam collied Allah, the person who Allah calls his friend.

00:13:52--> 00:13:54

Imagine having a las panatela is your friend.

00:13:55--> 00:14:10

And this is Ibrahim Ali Salim. Not only him, not only him, keep him on the path of salah and the people of a Salah. But also bring his children and keep them on those who pray their Salah,

00:14:11--> 00:14:20

Musa alayhis salam when Moosa went to Mount mount tour in where he spoke to Eliza gel.

00:14:21--> 00:14:59

One of the things that Allah azzawajal commanded him to do in so little Baha in nanny, and Allahu La Ilaha Illa Anna Farah Bodine, were up in solitary victory. Allah azzawajal told told him in many annaleigh Verily, Allah subhanho wa Taala saying, am Allah and Allahu La Ilaha Illa who there is no God but Allah subhanho wa Taala Pharaoh Bodine, worship me, how do you worship Me? How can you do this?

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

massala to the Vickery. Establish prayers and this is how you can worship me.

00:15:07--> 00:15:18

All the prophets and the messengers pray to Allah from Adam IE Salaam to another use Allahu Allah who was sending them. They may have different in the way they pray.

00:15:19--> 00:15:24

But all of them were told and commanded to establish some type of prayer.

00:15:25--> 00:15:29

Then we come to our Isa IE selam Isa,

00:15:30--> 00:16:24

who was born without a father, whom Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded him to speak from the cradle, in defense of his mother, and Allah subhanho wa Taala told him Paula ini Abdullah, in me Abdullah now this is Isa Ali his Salam speaking, telling the people in defense of his mother, that I am leave of Allah subhanho wa Taala attorney Al Kitab, Allah azza wa jal gave me a book, watch our island in Libya, and made me a prophet. What giannone Mubarak can aim Quint and Allah azza wa jal made me a blessing wherever I am. What Oh Sani Bissau, Allah. And Allah azza wa jal advised me to pray.

00:16:25--> 00:16:41

Also, honey bee Salatu was Zakat and to pay my Zakat, madam to hire as long as I am alive in this dunya pray my Salah, give my Zakat and busy myself with worship.

00:16:42--> 00:16:50

And he's saying this actually as a baby in his cradle. This is Isa it is Salatu was Salam. And then we come to

00:16:51--> 00:17:37

the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam who it Allah azza wa jal commanded numerous times in the Quran to pray numerous times, he was told and even it went as far as a loss so we're just telling the Sol sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what model Luca Sala was stopped at our la her command even your family, your children, your wives command your family to pray, was stop it early and have extra patience with them. Why should you have extra patience when you command or teach your family about worship?

00:17:38--> 00:18:29

Because this here alone, you can understand that teaching your family is more difficult than teaching strangers. This is why Thoreau sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us in an important Hadith, three out of home theater commonly the best of you amongst you are those who are good to their families. The people who are good to their families who teach them who involve them in worship. These people are the best type of people. Because if you can give Darla to your family, your wife, your husband, your children, your uncle's your in laws. If you can give dadullah to your family while law you will be able to convince anyone else around your family. Get through to your family.

00:18:29--> 00:19:09

You will get through to strangers. You will get through to your community as long as you can do it with your family. This is why Allah azza wa jal tells us we'll still be Riley here and have extra patience with them. Because this road of teaching family about Islam is more difficult than teaching your brothers and sisters and your friends about Islam. We move on to another important category the legislation of a solar machinery to solar how solar was legislated. How did solar come to us?

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

If you notice

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

in the Quran, in the Sunnah

00:19:16--> 00:19:41

when it comes to cm, fasting Zakat, Hajj beruwala, Dane a hillock similar to Rahim relationship with with your brothers and sisters and your families. If you notice that all of these things if you open the core and or you look into the Sunnah, you will find that we were ordered to do these things. There's a strict order whether it's an IRA or an authentic hadith.

00:19:43--> 00:19:46

However sada came down very different.

00:19:47--> 00:19:58

Sala not only was commanded in the poor and and in the Sunnah, but Allah Subhana who what I call the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to him.

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

The important journey that we all have heard of and we know that is Sora was mirage.

00:20:06--> 00:20:17

The Night Journey that took place from Mecca to Jerusalem, and then where the Sol sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was raised up to Allah azza wa jal.

00:20:18--> 00:20:24

This is how Sala was legislated, unlike any other type of EBITDA

00:20:26--> 00:20:27

and during this event,

00:20:29--> 00:20:53

Allah subhana wa tada actually legislated. 50 prayers in one day. Can you imagine praying 50 that's like praying every 15 minutes 1520 minutes you're praying every single day. And this is what allows religion legislated for the summer. And we will come to why Allah subhanho wa Taala did this. There was a great Hickman behind this

00:20:55--> 00:20:57

will sell a lot more Allahu Allah He was Silla met Allah.

00:20:58--> 00:21:00

And Allah told him about this.

00:21:02--> 00:21:14

And he came back down but also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he met musala who salah and Musa alayhis salaam told him go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala go back to him.

00:21:15--> 00:21:18

Because I musalla he Selim

00:21:19--> 00:21:54

was telling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I have been through more hardship. I have been through more obstacle with my own money than you will go through with your own and your own I wouldn't be able to pray 5050 times a day. So go back to Allah azza wa jal and ask him to decrease this to less than this. And there were a series of descents back and forth to Musashi Islam, to Allah subhanho wa Taala that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was doing this until it became

00:21:55--> 00:22:53

daily prayers. It didn't stop there. Not only did it reach five daily prayers, but even in the hadith of Eman Malik are the long run. In this authentic hadith explaining how the Salah was legislated. In the same Hadith, Allah is saying to us, that 50 prayers will now reach five, but 50 will always equal with five will always equal 55 prayers will always equal 50 in reward. So as long as a Muslim prays their five daily prayers, you will receive the reward of praying 50 times in sha Allah, we ask a laws of logic to accept even if it is just one Salah from us, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to accept our prayers.

00:22:54--> 00:22:56

There's an important question here.

00:22:57--> 00:23:31

Why does Allah or why did Allah subhanho wa Taala legislate 50 prayers but knowing fully well it was going to reach five, of course a lot zoologia knew that it was going to reach five. He knew that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be descending back and forth to Moosa and him. So why did he say 50 in the first place, though, lemme have to acquire our colon regarding this two opinions regarding this, and they both complement each other. The first one is

00:23:32--> 00:23:41

the Dalai Lama tell us that Allah subhanho wa Taala actually wanted us to feel the reward of 50 prayers.

00:23:42--> 00:23:59

He wants us to feel as though we were the reward of 50 prayers, even though we only pray five. And this as we mentioned to you is in the Hadith itself, and that there is a very important I installed it and I am and we're allies. So which tells us

00:24:00--> 00:24:17

ninja bill has an anti fella who actually unfairly her that whomsoever comes on your piano with a good deed, they will be rewarded 10 times more that deed. So one solar 10 times another another another end, you have 50 solar.

00:24:18--> 00:24:23

Another opinion, is that praying 50 times a day.

00:24:26--> 00:24:38

One hikma, the Dalai Lama told us here is that this here, showing us this here shows us the importance of rabada the importance of sada

00:24:39--> 00:24:53

Allah azzawajal by saying such a high number choosing to legislate 50 daily prayers automatically teaches us the importance of this worship even though we only do with at least five a day.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

Just thinking the thought of having to pray at least every 15 minutes

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

This shows us how important Salah is and how it should be in our lifetime.

00:25:06--> 00:26:02

will love him Stan, May Allah help our brothers and sisters home even. We are praying at least five times a day yet there are still brothers and sisters who do not pray five times a day. There are still brothers and sisters and I'm sure every one of us here knows of someone like this. Who is not praying five times a day. Now can you imagine if we were stuck with 50 times a day, praying every 15 minutes. So Pinilla This is a great mirror of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is a great example of the love and care and compassion that Allah azza wa jal shows to mankind by lessening the load of Salah on in our lives, but still giving us the reward as though we prayed all day. So Pinilla,

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

we continue our URL

00:26:06--> 00:26:16

to another category. This is a third category that we will discuss the best times and places to pray.

00:26:17--> 00:26:41

This is an important practical point here, the best times to pray, and the most important or best places for you to pray. Now, in terms of the best place to pray, there is obviously one place in this entire dunya in terms of reward, which is the best place to pray. And that is of course in mestu that held on in Mecca.

00:26:42--> 00:26:46

In where a person who prays one prayer in Mecca

00:26:47--> 00:27:08

will receive the reward of 100,000 prayers, praying $1 invested How long is equivalent to 100,000 prayers. So let's do the math here. 100,000 prayers How long would it take for somebody to do that in their lifetime?

00:27:09--> 00:27:38

54 years, nine months and two weeks, two equal to equal the reward of one prayer in mystical how long 100,000 prayers and so Pinilla Can you imagine if any one of us here have been given the honor and blessing to go and make Hajj or Umrah and we go to mystical Heron and we pray five prayers there in mystical harem

00:27:39--> 00:27:46

and we stay in Mecca for two weeks or one week and we're praying all of our prayers, all of them all of them all and missing out on.

00:27:47--> 00:27:58

Well lucky one prayer alone equal 54 years of mining. You better believe that if you can crawl and reach missed out on

00:27:59--> 00:28:28

that this is something that every one of us should do. If we had to scrape on our bare hands and knees and get into that house them and pray at least one prayer. You better believe that that is what exactly you should do. That is exactly what anyone should do. If they've been blessed with the chance and the opportunity to go to Mecca and pray, go to Mecca and perform their hedge or intermodal

00:28:30--> 00:28:40

A u haul above since not all of us have that privilege of going to Mecca. What about where we live? Where are the best places for us to pray?

00:28:41--> 00:28:46

Before we come to that, let's discuss very briefly the best time to pray.

00:28:47--> 00:29:13

As Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in Surah t Musa in the Solana Thailand mina keytab, a makuta that verily prayer has been prescribed and written for the believers at a specific specific times. specific times prayers have been legislated and have been asked for us to do we can't we're not allowed to wake up

00:29:14--> 00:29:33

at fudger time and say we want to pray voto for this is unacceptable. We can delay failure after vote and say that's what I'm going to prefetch No, because a lot subhanho wa Taala tells us that these prayers have been established at specific times.

00:29:34--> 00:29:44

This is one the second point here is now all of us Alhamdulillah I trust that all of us understand what these times are and so there's no need for us to get into that.

00:29:45--> 00:29:51

However, we will mention an important Hadeeth of Abdullah even Mr. Udo the alohar

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

he came and asked the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yada Salalah O Messenger of Allah

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

You are Mellon hub Illallah

00:30:04--> 00:30:26

what is the act or deed? That is most beloved to Allah subhana wa tada What did what deed is most beloved to him? that he would reward tremendously if I do this this act. What did the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reply and tell him a Sala Allah walk Tia,

00:30:27--> 00:30:33

not a Salah. That's it. Us Allah, Allah walk to

00:30:34--> 00:30:52

prayer at its time. And Orellana Rahmatullah here, I leave him from them your mama know where you are akima Hola. Explain that Allah walk to her at its time, meaning at the beginning of that prayer time.

00:30:53--> 00:31:41

So, for example, when the time of solitude enters, just as the sun begins to set, and the sky begins to change color, and we don't want to get into the fifth of this, but we start to see the signs of solitude entering in, this is the best time to pray. Salatu mahalo. And the same goes for all the other Salawat from Sala till February tovo, harder to answer and etc. Once you see that all the signs have been established in front of you, that this particular scholar has the time for it has now entered. This is one of the most beloved acts of the to Allah subhanho wa Taala is when a person prays,

00:31:42--> 00:31:45

when not just prays alone, but they pray on time.

00:31:46--> 00:31:57

And they pray their Salah on time. And this should answer this question is the best time for us to pray on time. This is the best time for you to pray on time.

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

Bob,

00:32:01--> 00:32:05

let us continue. For the time in sha Allah is coming near.

00:32:07--> 00:32:10

We continue with one last and final point.

00:32:12--> 00:32:26

And that is the best places for us to pray. And this is especially important for where we're living this part of the world. And as we mentioned to you since we are not in the blessing places of Mecca and Medina etc.

00:32:27--> 00:32:40

Where is the best place for us to pray? For this particular question we will entertain we will separate it into two main points. The best place is to pray for the men and the best places to pray for the women.

00:32:42--> 00:33:05

As for the men, the answer is only one place. And that is in a Masjid on a place where it is known that the five daily prayers are established there. So a Masjid doesn't have to be something that is structured from scratch all the way and you know you build a message from scratch. No.

00:33:06--> 00:33:09

I believe this message here used to be a warehouse is that correct?

00:33:10--> 00:33:58

Or a government office. However, it is established now to be a place of worship. So it is called msgid. You're not going to say I'm going to avoid or the government office, you're going to say you're going to the masjid. And the same thing, whether it's a house, a basement, a community center, a warehouse, whatever the case is. One of the conditions of a place to be called a message is that at least the five daily prayers are established there such as this place. And so for a man, the best place for him to be when it's to his five daily prayers is that he is with the jamara he is with the congregation in a place of prayer in a Masjid.

00:33:59--> 00:34:33

Now, this does not mean that you establish a bunch of brothers in your house in your room. And you're like, Okay, this is my Masjid from now on. And I'm going to bring on vitc brothers or I got I got seven children. So I got a little Java in my house. I don't need to go to the masjid. I can just pray right here, set up a little mic and actually I saw this once I visited a brother and he had a huge mic system in his house. And he had about four, four or five children.

00:34:34--> 00:34:59

His message was five minutes away from his house. This was somewhere in Scarborough. His misdeed was five minutes away but he never went there because why? He said that this is his Gemma and this is incorrect. You will never find I mean Allah Allah. You will never find a scholars telling you that this is correct. Going to the gemera it means going to

00:35:00--> 00:35:19

The place where the community come and pray, where people brothers and sisters, strangers, families, everyone, the Muslim community come and they gather here for worship. And this is the ultimate goal. This is where the man belongs.

00:35:21--> 00:35:23

What is the ruling or the hokum

00:35:24--> 00:35:47

or the status of praying in gemera? What is the status of a man praying in German that will tell us that the ruling for a man to pray in a jamara is why Juba unless there is an important reason why he cannot do so. And we don't want to get into the reasons,

00:35:48--> 00:36:06

however, and must try his best regardless of his situation, he is to try his very, very, very best for topo la Mr. thorton fear Allah azza wa jal, the best of your ability and establish your prayers amongst the gemera

00:36:08--> 00:36:10

a man as we will come to shortly,

00:36:12--> 00:36:15

a man who remains in the masjid

00:36:16--> 00:36:42

and he remains in there waiting for a prayer he is in the state of Salah even if he's just sitting there, like all of us here today. At this very moment, all of us here sitting in this semester, we are in the state of Sala, we may not be going for the little Corps in the sujood at this very moment, but we are getting reward from Allah azza wa jal as though you are all and myself and everyone here is praying

00:36:43--> 00:36:49

and this is based on an important Hadith which will conclude with with the section of the mentorship pray.

00:36:50--> 00:37:04

This is an important how do you find a B hold al todo de la Horne pod pod asuna la sala la hora de he was sending them Sala to Rajamouli Phil Gemma itin to dar if

00:37:05--> 00:37:15

ILO Sala te fi Beatty ii wafi soupy hum sunwarrior sharena Blair, Blair fen are barf and

00:37:16--> 00:37:20

a person who prays in the jamara in a Masjid.

00:37:22--> 00:37:41

His prayer is 25 times more. And in another written narration 27 times more, better, more rewarding to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then if he were to pray in a marketplace, or in a mall, or in his home,

00:37:42--> 00:37:51

praying amongst the gemera is 25 or 20, more times better than praying in these other places.

00:37:52--> 00:38:04

Because praying in a mall is not easy. It's not easy to find a place to pray, where you can establish your Salah where you can establish concentration where you can focus on Eliza gel.

00:38:06--> 00:38:20

But even the difficulty that you go through praying in those places, it is 25 times better for you to do it's right in the masjid here amongst a congregation and the Hadeeth continues was Alec

00:38:21--> 00:38:26

and now who either talabat sunnen will do if that person

00:38:28--> 00:38:46

if that person who is going to pray in msgid they're sitting in their home or at their work or wherever the cases and they perform will do and they have in the intent, their intention that they are performing their will do because they are going to go and pray and jamara

00:38:47--> 00:38:52

going to the masjid they're going to leave their homes and go to the masjid and pray

00:38:54--> 00:38:58

this person here if they perform a proper will do

00:39:00--> 00:39:04

and will do in and of itself. You can have an entire conference on how to do proper withdrawal.

00:39:06--> 00:39:32

But this person does the proper will do using the proper type of water. Use the making the window in order and following all the rules and regulations. And they do this with the Nia that they're going to leave their home and go to the question though so sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us through Maharajah lol Masjid la you Horridge who in la sala

00:39:33--> 00:39:48

he leaves his home and he has no other reason to leave his home except he is going for Salah lennier how to how to attend in lo fi at Allahu Allahu Allah Subhana Allah.

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

This person here will not take a footstep, except that each footstep he takes he will be raised

00:40:00--> 00:40:12

status with each footstep he takes towards the masjid. Allah will raise this person in honor on status. Allah will give him nor in his life.

00:40:14--> 00:40:18

Have you ever noticed a person who is constantly in the masjid?

00:40:19--> 00:40:47

praying constantly in the mustard when you look at that person's face, you look at his face alone and his face brings ease and comfort to you. You will find that there are some people like this, especially the trilemma but even aside from the Atlanta people right in our community here, you look at their face and you feel or you see that there is a good chance loves this person.

00:40:49--> 00:41:14

When this person smiles, you feel nothing but comfort enjoy with this person. When this person speaks, you feel nothing but comfort and joy when this person speaks. All of this mukou have the effort. These are all effects of his Salah. These are all effects of him struggling and taking each step towards the masjid. And the Hadees continues.

00:41:16--> 00:41:20

What hope I'm will be here we're hope to learn how to be healthy.

00:41:21--> 00:41:37

So pianola and even he is raised in status for every step that he takes towards the masjid. And at the same time, a sin is removed from him for every step that he takes.

00:41:38--> 00:41:44

So if you take 1000 steps towards if you count and you take 1000 steps to reach the masjid

00:41:47--> 00:42:32

This is 1000 mistakes or sins that allies so a general rule removed from you so panela imagine this person hasn't even reached the message yet. He hasn't even entered he hasn't even started praying yet yet. He is already being raised in status. And he's being forgiven of sins. And he hasn't even started praying here yet. So Pinilla Can you imagine? Actually there's a brother who's who has a very smart way of getting this reward, Masha Allah, may Allah reward this brother for his eagerness, he would come to the masjid because there are lemma explained this Hadeeth meaning that driving is not part of this Hadeeth it's walking footsteps. So what this brother used to do is come to the

00:42:32--> 00:42:55

masjid find the last parking all the way at the end of the parking lot and walk and he wouldn't walk in a straight line, but he would walk in a zigzag and walk and walk until the door of the message and he entered. Mashallah. So in sha Allah, all of us, we parked somewhere by Tim Hortons, and we walk here

00:42:57--> 00:43:20

and the Hadeeth continues. So finally, it doesn't even end there. Just simply coming to the gemera that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us for either sulla Lem tezi Mela ekata to solea la Madonna Phil masala. This person once he has come to the masjid, and he has prayed.

00:43:21--> 00:43:31

And now he remains in the masjid. He's just waiting. It's finished praying, for example, Maghreb. Now he's sitting in the message and he's waiting for Isha.

00:43:32--> 00:43:56

He is in the state of prayer. And he will receive the reward as though he never came out of oral Corps. He never came out of sujood. He never came out of PM, he's still reciting that and saw those and he's in such debt and so on, and so on and so on. He's getting the reward as though he's constantly praying and all he's doing is he's just remaining in the masjid, waiting for the next prayer.

00:43:57--> 00:44:00

And it doesn't end there. The Hadeeth continues

00:44:02--> 00:44:10

the mela aka the angels will begin now to make dua for that person.

00:44:11--> 00:44:20

They will make do offer that person what what is this to our Allahumma suddenly it this is what the angels

00:44:21--> 00:44:29

the angels will ask allies of which an O Allah send your blessings upon this person who sits here waiting for the Salah.

00:44:30--> 00:44:51

And it continues along more humble. Oh Allah shower your mercy, your comfort your love and care on this person? Well, I guess how do you Sala tin mantova Sala and as we have mentioned to you and the Hadeeth isn't al Bukhari Muslim.

00:44:52--> 00:45:00

That as long as a person is waiting for a prayer in the masjid, he will always be in the state of prayer.

00:45:00--> 00:45:00

Prayer.

00:45:01--> 00:45:07

And there are a number of benefits of why the men especially come to the masjid and pray.

00:45:08--> 00:45:21

However, before we touch on some of the FOA ID or some of the benefits, let us entertain briefly, the women and where is the best place for them to pray

00:45:22--> 00:45:41

for the women, we come to an important Hadeeth in Abbe de wood, where little Sol Sol de la hora de who was seldom tells us last 10 narwhal, Nisa akula masajid What drew you to Hana highroller hana

00:45:42--> 00:45:46

don't prevent them from going to the masjid.

00:45:47--> 00:45:49

What this means here is

00:45:50--> 00:46:00

if a woman wants to go to the masjid for a lecture for a conference for a class, or whatever the case is something important and beneficial.

00:46:02--> 00:46:24

There are also a lot more IE will sell them tells us don't stop them. As long as they are capable of going as long as they are in the position that they are able to go. Don't prevent them from doing this. However, here's where total Sol Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam tells us now Where is better for the women to be?

00:46:25--> 00:47:06

What will you to hoonah however their homes higher Laguna is better for them. The rlms explain this. What does it mean when you say that their house is better for them? What does this mean? It means is better for them. They you will receive more reward for putting in their homes. And even somewhere LML went as far as saying that if a woman stays at home and she prays her Sala simply by acting upon this hadith she will get more reward than the men who come to the masjid. So Pinilla

00:47:08--> 00:47:11

why is it that the home is important for a woman?

00:47:12--> 00:47:17

The reason for this Darla told us it is in the home.

00:47:18--> 00:47:29

It is in this structure that the women them control. Sorry, brothers what I have to say, the women control the home. How do they do this?

00:47:30--> 00:48:27

They are the ones who look after the home and look after the children. The first high school that a child goes to is the high school with his mother, the first city that a child goes to he goes to the to University of his mother. The first school that a child will ever enter in his entire lifetime is the School of his mother. It is what the mother can teach. It is what the mother can present is what will determine the success and the piety of this child. So this is one reason is that the women their important role in being in the home and taking care of the home. This is why Allah azza wa jal made it easy for them and set to them. On top of all of these things that you do. Praying your home,

00:48:27--> 00:48:32

you will still may get more reward than those men who leave the home and go to the masjid

00:48:33--> 00:48:39

for boo to hoonah. Hyrule Laguna is better for them.

00:48:40--> 00:48:44

And also a u haul hubbub. We want to conclude

00:48:45--> 00:49:12

by stating some of the benefits of praying in a gem era. And this is also for the women if they wish to establish a gemera wobbu tahuna highroller on their homes and establishing a jemar in their home is better for them. However, what are some of the benefits, we will only mention a few of them and we will conclude in sha Allah, that some of the benefits

00:49:13--> 00:49:59

of praying in a gemera is that this is the way or this is the best way to establish a unity and love amongst the community. When brothers pray beside a brother, there is no religion in this world that will do this, where you are told to stand shoulder to shoulder beside a strange person you've probably never met in your life. You're not only told to maybe speak to them or send it to them or say a Salam or Aleikum to them, but you're told to get in what some people call their personal space gets shoulder to shoulder and touch. And this establishes a sense of unity and love amongst the brothers. And that the same goes for the sisters

00:50:00--> 00:50:55

As well as praying in El jamara, praying on time, this is also one of the most important ways for us to seek Allah subhanho wa Taala is paradise. We ask a lot of agenda over and over and over as long as we can breathe in this dunya we ask a lot zoa gel to give us his agenda, to allow ourselves and our families and our children to hear human human words those who are alive and those who have returned to Allah azza wa jal to enter his paradise. My brothers and sisters, these are the few words that I conclude with. In sha Allah next week, we will conclude this topic by discussing what is the ruling for somebody who doesn't pray what happens to that person in the dunya and in the

00:50:55--> 00:51:47

earth era? What are some of the opinions that the allameh have regarding a person who does not pray? A typical Salah person refuses to pray, or a person who is just plain and simply lazy to pray, what happens to this person, as well as next week in sha Allah we will discuss on how to improve your horseshoe how to improve your concentration in a Salah. And also in sha Allah, we will discuss some of the important acquirement itself. Some of the important sayings and statements of the seller regarding a Sala May Allah subhanahu wa tada forgive us shower His mercy, his love his protection, his guidance indistinct all of us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us amongst those who pray in

00:51:47--> 00:52:09

this dunya an even in the earth era, however it is pleasing to Him soprano what Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala bring those who are not praying to the jamaa to the masjid to the SATA, male lizer which I accept from us our good deeds give us a tremendous reward in the author.

00:52:10--> 00:52:18

And these are the words that will leave you with a URL above will ask you to Darwin and in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salaam wa Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
