00:01:03--> 00:01:44

as always, and forever. In this dunya We begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala. We seek His mercy, his forgiveness, his guidance, we testify that nun has the right to have any type of worship, what Allah subhanho wa Taala and we further testify that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is indeed his servant and final messenger. My brothers and sisters, allow me to invite you all to fear Allah azza wa jal, the fear that he is most deserving of you and do not die unless you are in the state of submission, unless you are in the state of Islam.

00:01:46--> 00:01:56

And as to what follows as the brother mentioned, this is going to be a continuation of what we began last week in our studies and discussion of physical Sala

00:01:57--> 00:02:03

and in our last discussion, we talked about the importance of a sauna in the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:02:04--> 00:02:18

And we discussed also how assala was prescribed to a few of the messengers and the prophets from Ibrahim Teresa and to the Prophet Mohammed Salah law while he was setting them

00:02:19--> 00:03:09

Furthermore, we discussed the legislation of a salah and how Salah was legislated and how Sala was prescribed and how different it was prescribed from all the other acts of worship that we do. So from a cm Zakat and beruwala, Dane and Hajj. These all of these acts of worship were ordered by Allah azza wa jal. And we mentioned that Sala not only was it ordered by Eliza agenda, but a lot personally called the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to him as part of this legislation process. Then we concluded with speaking about the times, and the places that are most beloved, and most preferred for us to be braid, and we mentioned that as for the men, the most preferred place

00:03:09--> 00:03:31

for us to pray is Miley Gemma is with the congregation. And so for the women we mentioned, about the most preferred place for the woman to be is in her dwelling or in her home, and we discuss the ahaadeeth regarding that. Today, as we mentioned, last week, we will discuss a very, very important Miss Ella.

00:03:32--> 00:03:49

A very important scenario is that it is incumbent upon each Muslim who studies of Salah who prays, they should and must know, what is the status or the ruling for somebody who does not pray?

00:03:50--> 00:03:58

What is the ruling for a person who does not pray? So this is our first category in sha Allah.

00:04:01--> 00:04:02

A person who does not pray

00:04:03--> 00:04:20

is a person from Allah now, this is a person who is who has the traits or the characteristics of those who dwell in the hellfire. And we know this and we can see it it is stated in the Quran.

00:04:21--> 00:04:27

And when the angels will ask those in the Hellfire and pseudotumor death field,

00:04:28--> 00:05:00

the angels will ask them masala cocoon feasts upon how did you all reach in here? How is this punishment happening to you? How is this your dwelling place in the jahannam these people will reply and say Paul lemna community mousseline they will reply and say we weren't of those who establish prayers. We weren't of the people people who prayed in this dunya first thing. First thing they will mention

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

Is that they didn't pray. This alone can show you can teach us how severe it is for somebody who does not establish prayers in this dunya that this is the road, that if they continue to stay upon the road of not praying, this is the ultimate destination for someone like this.

00:05:21--> 00:05:22

Also,

00:05:24--> 00:05:46

Allah subhanho wa Taala in his infinite love and care for this oma for the human race, asked us know, commanded us to pray at least five times a day commanded us to do this. And this is the least that we should be doing is at least pray five times a day.

00:05:48--> 00:05:52

And Allah azza wa jal has given precedence to those who

00:05:53--> 00:06:30

has given precedence to those who pray and the human beings who have been prescribed to do this, and tells us in sorbitol surah, Allah had killed Rhonda Benny Adam and we have preferred Benny Adam, the human race over others, over the animals, over the insects over all the other creations, deployments and so on. Allah has paid special attention to those human beings and asked the Muslims, the believers to pray their Salah, pray their solar.

00:06:31--> 00:06:35

Now, the first point that we want to discuss about a person who doesn't pray

00:06:36--> 00:07:17

this mess Allah is divided into two groups. There are a group of people who don't pray, period. These people who don't pray. They are a group of people who don't pray and don't believe in Salah. Don't believe that there is something called prayer or Salah in the religion of Islam. They refuse to accept it as part of this religion. Allah subhanho wa Taala as we mentioned last week study talks about assala over 65 times in the Quran, but they refuse this they have a different definition.

00:07:18--> 00:07:29

These people also deny the importance of salah and they feel as though it has nothing to do with the religion. If I say la ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, this is enough for me.

00:07:30--> 00:08:04

This is one group of people. What is the ruling that Allah have regarding this group of people who don't pray and refuse the importance of prayer? They are disbelievers Big Mac, all the scholars present and in the past, have agreed that these group of people if they were to leave this dunya in this state with this Arpita with this belief, they will leave this dunya as a disbeliever of Eliza widget

00:08:06--> 00:08:20

and delete for this. There's an important Hadees that total Sol sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us about the Sala and tells us Allah had a lengthy baby Nana verbena whom masala

00:08:22--> 00:08:28

the contract that we have as Muslims and believers

00:08:29--> 00:08:41

by Nana between us what they know whom and between them them meaning the disbelievers. What makes us different from those who disbelieve

00:08:42--> 00:08:53

is not only that we believe in a larger agenda Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Kenda This is not the only reason but also, according to this Hadith, also assala.

00:08:54--> 00:09:15

And those who saw the law while he was selling them continues to tell us to tell us from an taraka for Khafre, and whoever leaves off a Sala whoever stays away from it. Whoever doesn't establish a solid pocket cafe they have fallen into disbelief.

00:09:16--> 00:09:21

They have fallen into Kufa and the Hadith is in a tournament the oneness.

00:09:23--> 00:09:29

So this is one group of people and there's no cleanup. There is no difference of opinion amongst our elemental regarding this group of people.

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

Then we come to another group of people who don't pray.

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

And this is the second category amongst them this mess Allah of the rulings of those who don't pray. The second category. The second group of people these are people who don't pray. However, they believe in solar. They believe in the importance of solar. They believe that it's part of this religion. They believe that it is a pillar of Islam. They believe in the idea that Allah azzawajal

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

has an urn and they believe all the authentic sooner and all the authentic hadith of the Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding Uppsala.

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

Now, what is the ruling regarding this group of people, this is where there is some empty life, there is some difference of opinion regarding this, where there is a group of scholars that have deemed that these group of people are in the state of Cofer, there are just there is no difference between them. And the first group that we mentioned, they are exactly the same.

00:10:34--> 00:10:48

There is another group, who also state that these people have committed a lesser type of Cofer. It is a type of disbelief that does not take you out of the state of Islam.

00:10:49--> 00:11:22

But if a person does not repent, they will die with this lesser type of Cofer. However, they are still Muslim, they're still Muslim, we still call them Muslims, we still look at them as Muslims, we still treat them as Muslims. And so, this is the laugh amongst the LML. regarding these group of people, I won't give you an the most correct opinion, this is not my job, I will give you the opinions and I will leave you with this. However, what I will say to you is this.

00:11:23--> 00:12:08

That the reason why there is an lt left or a difference of opinion regarding this group of people is that the scholars them they have a difference of opinion regarding the meaning of the word in the same Hadith that we just discussed in a tournament the when they say the where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us a lot, the lady been in our baina home Asada ferment taraka. And whoever leaves it, they have a difference of opinion, what is the meaning of the word tarak? In this hadith? Does it mean a man taraka? Meaning the person who completely ignores it and leaves it? Or does it mean a person who just doesn't pray, but they believe in it?

00:12:09--> 00:12:10

That's where the left is.

00:12:11--> 00:12:18

And this is where there is this two difference of opinion regarding the trilemma and this particular messala.

00:12:19--> 00:12:47

Many of the scholars in our time have discussed this hadith have discussed this missile and have gone into great, great detail. And if you look in the books of, of Chuck sod headphones, and check them out, share it with a me and in many of our lemma, you will find that they will say this to you that they have a same pattern or theme amongst themselves the scholars of our time. And they will say that the best ruling regarding this group of people

00:12:48--> 00:13:07

is that after you give them advice, and you teach them and you show them the importance of sada and still they refuse to pray, and still they don't pray, only then they take the ruling of the first group of people and they are in the state of war.

00:13:09--> 00:13:15

But anything before that, they should still and be considered as Muslims.

00:13:17--> 00:14:12

And so, if you look in the poor, in Surah tober, Allah azza wa jal in an area kind of leans towards the same opinion that these scholars hold that this ayah if you study it, some of the scholars have studied and diagnose that this idea kind of leads to the same opinion that we just discussed. And I and sort of the Toba Allah azza wa jal tells us for intangible what a common Sala will add to zakat. For one confit Deen. If they repent, and they establish prayers and pay there's a cat they are your brothers in this religion. They are your brothers in this religion. So you see here in this A A A Salah is mentioned as a criteria for calling someone a brother, or for that matter, even a sister.

00:14:12--> 00:14:15

The point is, they are a companion to you in this religion.

00:14:17--> 00:14:26

Now that comes an important question here. Whenever you discuss the ruling regarding someone who doesn't pray, there is an important question here that needs to be answered.

00:14:27--> 00:14:33

who must pray? Who are the people that must establish Sala

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

what are the things that determine that a person must pray? And for this, we go to one statement that all the elements agreed upon. And this one statement will answer this question for you clearly insha Allah, that every Muslim This is the first criteria Muslim who is mature and

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

saying so three things. The first thing is the person must be Muslim, other than a Muslim there is no Salah. So they must establish La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah then prayer is incumbent upon them.

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

Secondly is that they must be mature.

00:15:22--> 00:15:24

For a young child.

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

A solar is not wired up for them.

00:15:29--> 00:15:59

Until as little Sol sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that all of us know of this hadith of when the child reaches seven, you ordered them to pray. You begin to tell them about a solid and teach them and bring them to the masjid and Masha Allah we see that there are some very young children here, very young children who don't have to pray on their own but Jessa Houma, La Jolla run for the parents who bring them why to show them the importance of Asana.

00:16:00--> 00:16:18

And then the hobbies continues and when they reach 10 years old. You are to discipline them whether it means to spank them, or whatever the case is discipline them, and show them that now is the time that you must pray on your own. You must wake up for Salatu fetcher at 10 years old.

00:16:19--> 00:16:20

Long, Stan,

00:16:22--> 00:16:39

if you look around us, a little salsa la Hollywood cinemas telling us that a 10 year old at least must be waking up for Salatin federal, must be praying. And there are even adults that I'm sure all of us know, who are not waking up for solitude, who are not praying. They're Salawat

00:16:40--> 00:17:04

who are not praying, they're solo. And so this should answer this question. Homeless pray a Muslim that is mature and sane. So the third criteria is that they must be a sane person. And the delille for this is a hadith that we all have heard of, though Sol Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam telling us that it is a hadith of eyeshadow, the Allah who

00:17:05--> 00:17:31

wears when he tells us that autofit column Allah thalassa that the pen is raised upon three groups of people. The first one, I know him Hatta is status, a person who is sleeping until they're awake. So as long as you're sleeping, the pen is raised from you until you are awake, that pen recording your deeds and your actions. And a second group I will still be

00:17:32--> 00:17:41

on a child had to tell him until they become mature. And the third group of people on an image noon, hat dioctyl

00:17:42--> 00:17:57

on a person that is not sane, until they become sane. So a person that is mentally handicapped, or whatever the case is, until they become sane, only then the pen is

00:17:58--> 00:18:19

behind their deeds and behind their actions. And so I hope that this will show us give you a brief insight on what is the status of those who don't pray to groups of people and we discuss the opinions and we discuss the delille and who must pray a mature a Muslim that is mature and sane,

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

Muslim mature and sane.

00:18:23--> 00:18:49

We come to another important category regarding the Salah. And this is something that each and every one of us must constantly try in our lifetime. As long as we are breathing and we are praying people we are praying Muslims, we must always always always try to battle ourselves our inner selves with

00:18:50--> 00:18:58

concentration and trying to build our love and concentration and our focus in Uppsala.

00:18:59--> 00:19:21

In this particular section, we will discuss the words of a great scholar, a great early mineral aroma and he is none other than Eben Pagan Rahim Allah. And as we all know Eben Pagan Rahim Allah was one of the most famous students of chez hoonah, Shahada, Islam, even taymiyah urashima who

00:19:23--> 00:19:24

even claim

00:19:25--> 00:19:44

has categorized the people who pray into five main categories. five main categories no matter who this person is, as long as they are praying, or they are part of the praying people. They will fall under one of these five categories

00:19:45--> 00:19:53

for clodagh ecclesiam rahima, hula huhtala These are the words now of even Liam rahima hula, the first group of people

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

that are praying people are a group of people.

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

Who do not fully complete and adhere to the rules of Salah so they don't complete all the other can or the pillars of a Salah they don't complete all the shootbolt or the conditions regarding a Salah.

00:20:19--> 00:20:37

These, this is one group of praying people. So for example, a person in this category A person is going to pray but they don't perform proper will. They'll maybe just wash their hands and skip their arms or something and go to their face and so on.

00:20:39--> 00:21:06

This is a person who falls under this category where they did not fulfill one of the criterias of assala which is to perform will do however not just perform will do however you know it to be but perform will do correctly according to the Quran and Sunnah. So this is one group of people under the Sol sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described this group of people

00:21:07--> 00:21:10

as a group of people who pray like chickens.

00:21:11--> 00:21:36

This is to interpret this this is like a person who prays quickly and hastily in his Salah. So he'll be like Allahu Akbar, and then he will rush from deliverable algo para Maria Medina Fatiha Hello, hello someone in Surah then they will go into dual core and before they could say Suppan Oh, it'll be LLVM they're already back into a lower.

00:21:38--> 00:22:26

Low and they're praying like a chicken. This is what the salsa Lola while he was some described these people. And all of us, I'm sure all of us have seen a chicken eating. What does the chicken do? It takes his head and keeps picking up the ground. And so this is how little Sol sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describe these group of people. So this is one category where some people will fall under this. Another category. The second category that I've been playing with Rahim Allah tells us about is that there is a group of people who protect their solar, they adhere to the pillars, they adhere to the conditions of Asana. However, they are overcome by the West salvus assala, the

00:22:26--> 00:23:14

whispers of the shame upon that happens in a sada they're overcomed by this, for example, examples are good, because the examples clear, make a point clear to you. So I could be sitting and talking and talking and talking and still my words would be tainted, or tinted in front of you. However, the purpose of examples is to clarify and make these things clear to you. So for example, this person here, who protects all the pillars and the shuttle, and so on and so forth, is overcome by Elisa was shaped on their overcome by the whispers of shaitan. So they're praying. And as soon as they say, Allahu Akbar, all of a sudden, they're thinking about,

00:23:15--> 00:23:44

you know, if I go to school tomorrow, man, what time am I gonna get to sleep tonight? A sister may be thinking, so panela when I reach home, or when I'm home, or I'm sitting in this room, what am I going to cook when I'm finished, kind of spice what I use for this chicken, and kohan and so on. And so far, actually, there was even a brother. He was thinking about the lottery. So Pinilla even when he was while he was praying. After he, as soon as he said said, I want to go on for the last

00:23:45--> 00:23:46

$48 million

00:23:48--> 00:24:30

before you could even say stuff with all that stuff, but all stuff and begin your altcar so this is a person who's been overcome by the west side was the shaitaan. And I'm sure Chuck Saeed mentioned to you in his gin series, that there is a designated gin that comes only in sala alized religion created a specific gin to come and distract us in a Sala and orlimar have various various upwell describing this type of Jin Allahu item and is on its authenticity, but they describe how the jinn looks and so on and so forth. Well, the whole argument is authenticity. So this is one group of people,

00:24:32--> 00:24:53

the third group of people and we will come to why I'm discussing these group of people we will come to how you increase your whole shore, your concentration from the words of Eman clay and Rahim Allah. The third group are people who protect their prayer. Like we said, follow through with their conditions, the autocannon etc.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

However, at the same time, all they are concerned with

00:25:00--> 00:25:35

They're insular, all that their focus is on is on battling that shape time that gin that keeps whispering to them. That's all their their Salah is all about. And so, as we know of the authentic hadith of the Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaching us a one of the ways to keep your concentration in Asana is, you see are with a big lemon shaped by the regime and you turn to your left and you you do a dry spit three times. This is one of the way so every so sometimes you might find a brother or a sister that every two minutes

00:25:40--> 00:25:51

and he's just going back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. He's busy fighting the shape and he's busy, five battling against this enemy of Allah azza wa jal.

00:25:52--> 00:26:05

So this is another group of people. The fourth group of people. The fourth one, right, yeah, is a group of people that protect their solar, same thing follow through with all the conditions of a sada.

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

However,

00:26:10--> 00:26:13

his greatest importance in the Seiler

00:26:14--> 00:27:00

to protect his solar and to protect his worship to allies. So again, this is his most greatest importance. So whether it means to fight off all the service of the shavon whether it means that every single solar he has to make will do even though he has to he has to go and perform although because why? All he cares about is to establish salah and worship, and that's it. He just wants to pray a proper prayer where he's concentrating on everything that he does. And we see this, we see this, there are always some brothers, that you will see that when you see them praying, you will say Subhanallah No matter how much noise No matter how much chaos or children, whatever the case is

00:27:00--> 00:27:24

around this brother, his brother is concentrating in a salah and he's praying and May Allah reward this brother. This is the fourth type of or the fourth group of people. The fifth and final group that Ebon claim Rahim Allah teaches us and tells us about is a group of people that we ask Allah azza wa jal to make us of this group of people, the fifth group,

00:27:25--> 00:27:33

this is the most preferred group and this is where we will extract ways on how to improve your whole shore in a solid

00:27:34--> 00:27:38

these are the group of people group number five,

00:27:39--> 00:27:42

that stand up in front of Allah azza wa jal

00:27:43--> 00:28:02

fulfilling all the conditions, all the rules and regulations, they go to the masjid or this sister she remains in her home and she tries to do all the Sunnah acts even even the Sunnah, acts of the Salah, this person tries to keep them and hold on to them.

00:28:03--> 00:28:14

This is a person that their sole concern when they pray is they pray as though they see a large surgeon

00:28:15--> 00:28:20

and Nikita Tato for 11 Tara who fell in love with Iraq.

00:28:22--> 00:29:20

This person is praying as though Allah azza wa jal is watching him and him alone. And he himself is praying as though he sees a lot of zoa gel, and he sees nothing else around him. This is a person not only is he battling with the West west of the sheath on the whisper of the shaytaan not only has he made or performed a perfect will do, not only has he come to the masjid. Not only has he performed all the Sunnah, acts to prepare for a sauna, but he prays with his heart. He prays hoping that Allah azza wa jal showering his love and mercy upon him, he is praying with his heart and as a result his actions is illustrating what is in his heart. And so this is the person you find him

00:29:21--> 00:29:39

that he would praying salata Lucia, or he's praying sought out to the mothership. And the man begins to recite a surah talking about yo piano, and this is the person who begins to shed tears in fear of allies. So again,

00:29:41--> 00:29:55

this is the person when the here is of the core and speaking about Allah punishment, this is the person that is crying in his Salah in fear of a loss or just punishment.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

This is the person person that when he hears

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

The rewards of Allah azza wa jal and the rewards that Allah azza wa jal has prepared, prepared for those who believe for those who establish their prayers. This is the person who cries and trembles his heart and happiness that Allah is most caring, most loving, most rewarding to him. This is the person when he goes into such depth when he prostrates and he goes into sujood. This is the person that you will think he's sleeping in his suit. He's falling asleep. But what he's doing AC spending moments after moments after moments, crying his life to alarm so urgent. He's crying, and he's complained all of his complaints.

00:30:52--> 00:31:14

He's going through problems after problems. He has just lost his wife, or she has just lost her husband. She is stuck with three or four or five children. She has no job. She has no one to take care of her. And so she remains in sujood pouring her heart out to allies. So again,

00:31:16--> 00:31:50

this is the group and the fifth and final group that even claimed Rahim Allah speak to us about in his passage, Eben Pagan, he tells us of four main things that we can do to improve our whole show. The first thing he tells us is that this group of people they place their hearts and submitted completely to Allah azza wa jal. So this is the first thing that a person can do to improve their whole show is to completely submit your heart to Eliza gel.

00:31:51--> 00:32:03

You pray as though no one is in control. You pray as though no one can distract you. This is all part of submitting your heart to Allah azza wa jal.

00:32:04--> 00:32:08

The second thing you can do, the immune claim tells us about

00:32:09--> 00:32:13

is fill your heart with the love of Allah azza wa jal

00:32:14--> 00:32:15

pray.

00:32:16--> 00:32:58

Not only because you have to, not only because it is part of your religion, not only because Allah commanded you to, but because you love to pray, you sit and you wait. Even when you're at work or school and you're doing your job in the back of your mind, in the back of your mind, you're waiting, you can't wait that when the time for Salah comes, you can drop everything you can perform you will do and you can have a moment with you and Allah subhanho wa Taala and so all of this, it builds the love in your heart for Allah azza wa jal

00:32:59--> 00:33:14

and erases you from the group that Allah azzawajal describes in the Quran in Surah Al Baqarah where he tells us that there is a group of people and these are the mafia Poon. These are the hypocrites. Now when they pray,

00:33:15--> 00:33:19

prayer becomes something heavy and difficult for them.

00:33:21--> 00:34:13

was their enormous subsidy was sada we're in luck hubiera tune Illa Allah cos you're in. Allah tells us to prepare ourselves with patients and assala but then tells us what imnaha luck hubiera tune a Salah is something that is difficult and hard. For those who are the Muna, fickle, those who pray, who believe in Allah azza wa jal, but in their Salah, it's something that they find as a burden on them in their lifetime. Allah tells us this is how you know that when Salah becomes so difficult for you, you end up falling into this category. And this is something you ask a lot of constantly to bring love into your heart for a Salah. Don't make it something difficult but make it something that

00:34:13--> 00:34:20

is easy for you and a lot tells us a lot of closure in those who are fearful to Allah azza wa jal

00:34:21--> 00:35:00

so filling the hearts with love for us Allah for Allah azza wa jal another thing that someone can do as they've been playing Rahim Allah tells us is completely try your very best to completely block out the with Silas. So when you see that brother who constantly keeps turning to his left and he keeps doing the dry spit action, when you see somebody doing that, for how the height, this is something good. This is something good that this is a person who's constantly trying to block out the rest of the show.

00:35:00--> 00:35:11

respond. And just a side note with this particular point. How else does somebody do this? How else can we block out whispers that come to us and temptations that come to us whilst we're praying.

00:35:12--> 00:36:03

There are a number of things that are lemma tell us and from them is make sure that you perform a proper will will make sure you try your very best. And you take your time to perform will do. Are you bad is never something that is rushed, never something that you do in a quick rush, unless there is a valid reason and the exceptions are in extreme cases. So I will do take your time and perform it correctly. This will help you concentrate in Sala and this will help you fight off the snack gin, that all he has to do all his job in this world is to come and bother you while you pray. Another thing you can do is pray on time. Get your site up on time. And this is another way that the West

00:36:03--> 00:36:37

WESA of the shaitan is removed. also read lots of poor and read as much as you can every chance you get. If you're walking into the masjid Masjid, you're reading pour on your lips are wet with the count of Allah. As you're driving, whatever Saurus you have memorized, you are constantly reviewing whatever you chance to get at work, or at school, there is a break time and you are finished enjoying this break, you have a must have in your pocket. And you're reciting Quran

00:36:39--> 00:37:24

I actually know of a brother, who told me that he has a friend at his workplace who accepted Islam. How did he accept Islam, he saw this brother in his break time, for an entire year this brother in enjoying his break would review the word review just on the 30th juice of the Quran. And he would review it review it constantly. And then when he was done that he would review another job and he would just constantly be reviewing the Koran. And so this person constantly used to ask this brother, what are you doing? What are you reading? Why you keep reading this all the time? What does it do for you? And the brother would give this person Dawa and tell him about the poor and tell him

00:37:24--> 00:37:28

that it's the word of Allah and tell him why it is important to him.

00:37:29--> 00:37:36

And before you knew it, that same person said a Chateau La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah. And that brother

00:37:38--> 00:37:45

is in Toronto here. And from what I've heard, the brother even comes to dismiss you so insha Allah, he would be around.

00:37:46--> 00:38:39

Another thing that you can do to wipe out this was ours is and believe it or not, Darla might teach us and tell us that concentrate also on the way we dress, the clothes that we put on, when we pray, make sure that it is clothes that doesn't distract you, or anyone else around you. So if you have, for example, a T shirt and there's some famous Abraham Lincoln, Malcolm X saying on it, and instead of it being in the front of your shirt, it's at the back. We think that guy behind you is doing. You know, he's sitting there and it's like Malcolm X says, and he's reading, reading, reading, this is not only his fault, this is not only something that he gives account for in his Sala, but this is

00:38:39--> 00:39:34

also a responsibility that the person there who had chose to wear that clothes, chose to wear that as a distraction to others will also have to give account for it in front of Allah azza wa jal also using the C whack using the C wacka is also a way to reduce the restless of the shape on you know smaller, keeping our mouths clean, keeping our mouth smelling fresh, and this is done especially with the slack. The slack has a number of benefits, we can have an entire conference on the benefits of the C loc. The C whack has been proven to help a person breathe to help a person eat to give a person a stronger voice. It strengthens the gums it whitens the teeth, the benefits of the siac the

00:39:34--> 00:40:00

trilemma discuss it in great lengths, in great lengths, and so always have a C work with you will help you rid yourself of the restless of the shaitan and the fourth and final point. How to improve yourself in a hole short before we move to our final candidate category is knowing that there is nothing new

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

no job, no school, no responsibility, more important than assala and your worship. So knowing the importance of prayer, and why you do it, why it is important for you to pray? Why is it that even when you're at jobs, you still, you are still trying to find time. You're still trying to put aside time whether it's two times or three times a day at your workplace to pray a Sala

00:40:31--> 00:41:15

why the importance of prayer. Prayer is one of the only acts of worship where there is hardly any excuse for it. Even if a person is lying down in his bed and can never walk again. But they are mature, they are Muslim. And they are saying they still have to pray their solar. Even if they have to pray they're solid within their heart. They have to pray within their heart fertile core, the sujood, the PM, they can't eat, they're so paralyzed and so sick, they can't even speak and move their mouth. So in their heart, they're reciting something, they still have to pray their solar. This is how important assala is.

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

This is how important it is. And so brothers and sisters,

00:41:21--> 00:41:27

we will move on to our final category before we conclude our Upsala.

00:41:28--> 00:41:33

The final category which I will leave you with is the virtues of a solder

00:41:35--> 00:41:42

the Fudd masala will fall into her the virtues of the solder and the benefits of us praying a Sala

00:41:43--> 00:41:59

let me be the one to tell you, and remind you all and myself that assala the rewards for it are endless. We will never be able to count the amount of rewards and benefits of a solid in our lives.

00:42:00--> 00:42:06

A person who prays is a person who is loved by Allah zoa Jen,

00:42:07--> 00:42:33

if you want to know does Alo really love you. Then you look at your Salah. If you are a person who establishes prayer, this is a sign and more so if you are a person that fulfills all the conditions that we mentioned, and is a person that prays with their heart to Allah azzawajal Then where is this person from? What is the status of this person in front of Allah zoa jen

00:42:36--> 00:43:26

a sada as little Sol Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam describes to us in authentic hadith is like taking a shower five times a day. It is like jumping into a river five times. If a person were to jump into a river and clean themselves, the sahabas asked would you find that associate asylum as the Sahaba? Would you find any dirt on this person? And the Sahaba said, No, you wouldn't find anything with them. And note also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them this is how a Salah is that when a person prays five times a day, they are constantly being forgiven and cleansed from their sins. They're constantly being cleansed. So if a person, for example, happens to be walking outside, and they see

00:43:26--> 00:43:41

something, how long they see something, how long and they turn their head or they see it and they forget to say a stock federal law or they forget to seek a lowest forgiveness for this. And they go and they pray there. So Allah,

00:43:42--> 00:43:53

Allah azza wa jal B is the love to Allah will forgive him and cleanse him from that cleanse him from those minor sins that he has committed throughout his day.

00:43:55--> 00:44:52

The Sol Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam continues to tell us that a Salah is also a way for us to find ease and comfort in our lives. As he ordered Bilaal or the Aloha and he said yeah, Bella aqui masala arena be her. Go and establish prayers, let's pray, give us ease and comfort to our hearts with it bring ease and comfort to us. And this is why we emphasize the point that Salah is not something that is a hardship upon us, but rather it is something that is of ease and comfort to us. It is of ease and comfort to the movement. The movement, he loves to pray, he loves to hear the event. He loves to stand and he loves to have that one moment where it is only him and allies so agenne

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

A Sala and this is the final point that I can will conclude with me in the leg Karina

00:45:00--> 00:45:28

Sala is something that should remind us all that there will come a time where we will stand in front of Allah azza wa jal this same way that you see yourself standing in a Sala shoulder to shoulder side by side. with people you don't even know people you have never met in your life. You're only seeing them and standing beside them in a solder.

00:45:30--> 00:46:32

This is a time that should also remind us about a day that is coming to us. And as as chef basil rahima hula once stated that we are standing in front of the doors of your piano, we're standing in front of the doors. This is how close we are. And even though to Saul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that himself he was sent. And the last day the last Sarah, the last day in this dunya Yokoyama have been sent this close to each other, that a soul Salalah while he was selling them and yo piano. This is the distance between him and yolmer piano, and this was set 1400 years ago. Now imagine where it stands today. Imagine where it stands today. The llama told us that the majority of

00:46:32--> 00:46:42

the minor and the major signs of yomo piano have already happened. The majority of the minor and the major have already happened.

00:46:44--> 00:47:31

Bob, there will come a time, where we will all stand in front of Allah azza wa jal who fat and neurotic Motorola azuro sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that we will stand in front of him nude alone. Without anything. There is no mother and no father, no profit, no messenger, no friend, No brother, no one that will help us and we ourselves. We may find ourselves we will be looking for somebody to help us. And everybody will tell say, Neff see Neff. See, I can only help myself I can't help you. There's nothing that I can do for you.

00:47:32--> 00:47:58

And so these are the things that assala should be teaching us should be constantly reminding us. A Salah is a time even for the woman. When she goes through a hardship after a hardship in her lifetime. It is a time for her to also let out her tears and her complaints to Allah azza wa jal and sapan Allah,

00:48:00--> 00:48:09

Allah actually tells us this in Nepal and in solitary magetta in the very first ayah What does Allah azza wa jal tell us?

00:48:10--> 00:48:12

smilla rahmanir rahim

00:48:13--> 00:48:31

but is semirara long who olan Lottie to De Luca fees OMG ha or Tesh turkey no lor La Jolla smell Taha water Kuma

00:48:34--> 00:49:32

la semi bossy see, so panela great hope, especially for the women that allows so a gel is saying that he listens and he hears the complaints of a woman. When she goes in her sada obon. She raises her hands complaining about the difficulty that she goes through, and allies so Magellan makes specific focus on to the women because the women, most of the times they will go through hardship more than the men and this benefit them will fest soon. The amount of Tafseer tell us this. The woman she will go through the struggle of her hijab, she will go through the struggle in the way she dresses, she will go through the struggle of taking care of her children, she will go through the

00:49:32--> 00:49:49

struggle of taking care of her home, she will go through the struggle of of taking care of her family and her husband, etc, etc, etc. She will go through the trouble of giving labor to a child. She will go through the trouble of being pregnant for nine months.

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

And so, the woman when she finds herself that there is nothing else that she can do except complain to allies.

00:50:00--> 00:50:27

So a gentle until allies so it's all about her difficulty. What the What is the law so just say, well law who yes smell, Allah hears her complaint, Allah hears her Dora. Allah hears what she is going through in the last semi or embassy for allies. So a gel hears everything and he sees all that is happening in dystonia,

00:50:28--> 00:51:05

or you have a whole a whole lot, my brothers and sisters, these are the few words that I leave you with. I can only pray that Allah azza wa jal has opened my heart and all of you who have been listening from last week and today that we at least have some understanding of the fabric of Asana and its importance to our lives. And its importance as to our worship and why we need to do it in order to attain Allah subhanho wa Taala his gender. These are the words that I leave you with. And I conclude by saying to you,

00:51:06--> 00:51:28

that these words that I have set to you, in my time here in front of you, these words come from a brother will law he or she the law theme, or a bill shall carry a knee or hip rockenfeller was Allah to Allah and each miner what can be heard and hope FEMA guide you are intimately connected.

00:51:30--> 00:52:24

That I indeed, sit here in front of you not to lecture, I sit here in front of you not to vent over and over about a point over and over again, but will law he these words come from a brother that loves each and every one of you for the sake of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala and I asked a lot zoa gel to take this love that I have for you. And still it's in your hearts and keep it there. And with this love, bring us unreal mukaiyama in a place of truth and honor and pleasing to Him. sapan What are Allah? These are the words that I leave you with. I will be returning to Medina in a few days, and I will be returning back in the summer in sha Allah. So until then, Joseph kumala hiren

00:52:25--> 00:53:16

May Allah azza wa jal reward all of you for taking the time and the effort to get into your cars to put on your jackets to put on your clothes to turn on the heater and come here to the masjid the lady supine who Ouattara only to please Allah azza wa jal May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect you accept from you this good deed, except to give you all the goodness that you put forth in this dunya May Allah azza wa jal protect you, your children, your families, your jobs, Your Honor, as Muslims in dystonia. And if this is the last time that I see you, may Allah azza wa jal reunite all of us in his gender. genital theater dos akoto mata smartone what still fiddle la Li walakum Subhana Allah
