Channel: Musleh Khan
Let's begin our discussion for this evening, the only law he Tada, we are now at the mistakes of the sujood. Now, the first primary mistake when it comes to the sujood is very, very important. It's the most common mistake. It's the one mistake that most people who have problems with the sujood, they're going to have problems in this area. And that is, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordered us to have seven parts of our body touch the ground, and be firm into the ground when we go into the sujood.
Now, this problem here with this mistake is for some muscle lean for some of the people who pray, they don't have all seven parts actually touching the ground. And we've talked about this before. Now the prophets I send them mentions these seven parts, we all know what they are, they include the nose. Now, with the nose, some of the Aloma have a difference of opinion, believe it or not, what is exactly a nose, because what they say is the nose. It has a particular bone or a joint area and some are lemme have a feeling of whether this part of the nose and the forehead actually counts as one or two separate parts. And why do I say them, just imagine if you're going into sujood. And when your
noses onto the ground, some of them are Dima encouraged to try to get this inner part of the between the forehead and the nose to try to touch this to the ground. And the reason why is even the profits of the lohani was Cena mentions that the SL of sujood is also found here in this place. It's not just in the forehead, you know, some people have that dark spots on their forehead, the prophets I send them talked about this and mentioned that this spot here, it was done and it was brought to that person and they're they're given this sujood marker, then insha, Allah huhtala, Allah will cause that spot to be brighter than the sun on yomo piano. So some of the orlimar said to achieve
this, one of the ways is to perfect the face when it touches the ground for sujood. And part of doing that is to try to get this area to also touch the ground. Now, let me tell you, that's not easy. It's very difficult. As a matter of fact, you might even find yourself pushing literally forcing your head into the ground. Now you don't want to force your head into the ground, but just apply some pressure that it's comfortable at the same time. That's number one, then the two is the hands. Then three is the knees. So what are we at Here we are at five, and then six, seven is the two feet, all seven of these parts of the body have to be firmly placed into the ground. Now there's
a couple of issues here. The first issue is how do you perform a perfect sujood now when a person performs a perfect sujood from the mistakes This is the second mistake of the sujood is when people go into sujood their hands are placed to the ground but their fingers are spread apart. The prophets I seldom sin of going into salute his hands or fingers are together. And the reason the Hickman behind this, of course, is all the fingers face and point towards the fibula. Secondly is the palm area, the palm area is extremely important also for it to be firmly placed into the ground. Don't just have your fingers like this.
And just have them resting on the ground lightly tried to keep your entire poem into the ground as well. When it comes to the hand, the third mistake when it comes to the salute and placing the hands is the arms touching the ground. The profits of the low Holly was sudden them made a touch be and said that this here when you do that. It's like the sitting of the dog. When the dog wants to relax. What does it do? It takes its two front paws and lays it down into the ground. And Sutton does the same thing with its back legs as well. The prophesies send them says don't imitate the animals like this when it comes into the sujood even if Nakayama rahima, who long tells us that a person who
imitates any animal in their sujood for Cod, Apollo solid, then verily their solar is broken. So you have to be very careful of how the sujood looks. Even some of the elements said don't make your sujood resemble, like the curls of the snake. What does that mean? Some people when they go into sujood their nature Institute is that their body is how can I say that it's not consistent. In other words, their body looks very messy when they're in the sujood. So you'll have like one of their feet pointing this way another feet pointing that way. One hand is straight. The other hand is probably this. It's just
A lot of careless little detail that they miss out with the sujood. And scholars, they say this is very similar to how a snake will sit and relax itself, that a snake will start to curl itself, but its head would probably popping out its tail would pop out this way, and all of these different features that about them. So it's a very, very intricate detail about the sujood, you try to perfect as well and avoid when it comes to the feet and the knees.
I don't know until this day, why some Muslims, they do this. But some Muslims, and I'm sure some of us here, we've probably seen this, that some Muslims, when they go into the sujood, they'll raise their feet off the ground. I don't know what that's for. I don't know if they're just airing their toes or what it is, but they'll just raise their feet off the ground. I've even seen like people who play with their feet at the same time. You know, I've even seen some people scratching their feet, whose one feet and scratch the other feet, and do all of that while you're in sujood. Remember brothers and sisters that being in sujood, you're the closest to Allah azza wa jal Imagine if you
are the closest to your rub. And this is the nature you meet him in. It's really, really a very, very careless manner to be in front of a line. So a gel in this particular state. And this is why I've always said that people today, especially insulin, do a lot of crazy things, a lot of things that were unheard of. I mean, sometimes when I try to research some of the things that I've seen people do, I can't find them in any of the old books, I have to look for them in more of the newer books that scholars have written because these things were simply not understood or they weren't aware of back in the day. So that's important is that we try to keep our feet firmly into the
ground, when it comes to the toes, the toes should also be bent in such a way that you try to do this to the best of your ability that your toes are facing towards the fibula as best as possible. next mistake is when the feet are down.
You want to try to keep the feet touching each other as best as you can. So the heels so imagine this is where this was the feet, you want the heels to be able to touch each other as best as you can. And this is something that also the prophets alohar. It was Selim, it was narrated by some of the companions that they used to witness this from him that every time he would go into the sujood, he would be together with his feet. Next point is after all of these limbs, and these parts of the body touch the ground. Now we want to look at exactly the position of how the sujood should look. And this is extremely important. And I need somebody to volunteer this for me. So who can I pick on?
How about you? you're by yourself, have their men come let me single you out and bring you
Okay, now I need the sisters to look at this. Can you get the use of to come and just control the camera?
Okay, so we want to look at how a sujood is supposed to look, I'd get you to go on the table, but I'm afraid for you. Okay.
And the meantime, let's set you up. So, let's get you to go into a sujood and you can face this way, okay? But don't make no need for any sellout or anything or you're in trouble. Okay.
Okay, so look what's happened here. Now the first thing when it comes to the subject, okay, let's just wait for a moment. Okay, you can come on, you can. Okay, you can sit you can, you can sit. Let's just wait until the brother comes so that we can get the sisters to be able to see this. But basically what I want to do is I want to demonstrate how the solute should look once everything is complete, there should be a perfect manner and a perfect structure in how the solute should look. This here, you stay right there. Okay?
This here, what we're going to demonstrate is how ensure alone, you want your solute to look from this point forward every single time, it doesn't matter if it's enough, or sooner prayer or a photo period doesn't matter. You want to try to make sure that every single moment now from this point forward try to perfect your solute this way as best as possible. We're going to talk about also the arms and how to space them out because the prophets I send them also mentioned that as well in another Hadith. So in the meantime, when we're waiting for this brother, you stay right there, okay, in the meantime when we're waiting for them.
Another another mistake that we want to take ism raising, giving a platform giving a platform to an elderly or weak or sick person to perform sujood on I've seen this
happened before. You know what happens is that some people they'll see like an old man who can't go down for sujood. But he can stand and he can sit and he can do total core and everything else. But when it comes down to the sujood, it's as if at some point, he's either afraid or doesn't want to put in 100% effort in putting going to the sujood. So what did some people do, they'll take like a piece of wood or a small table or a small stool, and they'll place it in front of him where he would perform sujood on that stool, so that way it prevents him from taking his entire body to the ground. This happened to a companion who was very sick, and Abdullah Ebner, omoto and the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam, they both went to visit this man when he was sick. When the prophets I said them in our beloved in our own little Viola one, he they walked in, they saw this men performing sujood on a piece of wood, and the prophesies send them ordered Abdullah Abner Omar to remove that piece of wood. When the man was finished, he told them end this. He says if you can perform the sujood in its entirety, then you must do that. What inland but if you can't, then you can use something to support you or sit, do the three ways you either sit to stand your the pray, standing, pray, sitting or pray lying down the three main categories or methods of how to pray. Let's go back to the sujood really
quickly. Okay, so let's go into soju now, but
Okay, go ahead.
So the first thing that you want to look at is let's get you to straighten up is the space here
is the space between his leg and his stomach. This here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that when you perform this kind of sujood, you want to make sure that there is a gap between your leg and your stomach. And it should be almost to a 90 degree angle, you're going to probably need some assistance with somebody tell you exactly how this should look. So obviously his is too bad, too much back. So pull this forward a little bit. Perfect. The second thing is so that's the first part. The second thing is, is the straightness of his back, you want his back to be as straight as possible. So flex your back or look strong look like your firm, very good.
Third thing, remember, we talked about the feet and so this is how the feet should look. So you want to point your toes and then the heels will touch each other. As best as you can, the heels will touch each other as best as you can. Next point is the arms. Now scholars they differ on where the hands should be mm hmm chef era Hema hula, he mentioned that the hands it should line up with the ears, it should line up with the ears here. Other scholars said no. Other scholars said that the hands should be as far back to your shoulders as much as possible. And this here is the gym holder. The majority of mazahub tell us that this here. This is including a medic, Imam, Ahmed, Imam, Abu
hanifa, that your hands should be lined up or squared off with the shoulder area. This here is not a major concern in the Sala either or insha. Allah is also valid. Next point here is that we can take this as the next mistake. The next mistake when it comes to the suit is that people are closing in their arms and making themselves very tightly. Now this here, this type of sofa or description of the sujood is only for the women, the women are ordered to keep their bodies together as best as they can. This is one of the five ways of how a woman's prayer is different from a men's prayer. So one way is that when she goes down for sujood, her body is close together as much as possible.
summerwood a man also mentioned that if it was just women alone, then she's allowed to pray the same way that I've mentioned here she's allowed to pray, like how exactly the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all the other companions would pray. But otherwise, especially she's in a gym, or anywhere else. She should keep her body close together as much as possible. Are you okay down there? This is like 100 kind of subdued. You're doing okay, take a break.
Take a break for all. You're gonna go back there just now. We're training you for tahajjud man, so don't worry. We're getting you 4pm Malaysia Ramadan, all that good stuff. Okay, so you're good. You're ready to do this again. Okay, yeah, go ahead. So let me see a good suit now. Very good. Now the arms for the men. You want to try to keep it as wide apart as possible. Now, the proper size
them says that it should be wide enough that a small animal could creep underneath here. But in another narration This is a much more accurate narration in terms of creating the image of the sujood is that the prophecy sell him his companion said that we could see the whiteness of his armpit. So once that's accomplished, then that's the what the wideness of the arms and how they should be in the sujood Otherwise, this looks pretty good. What do you guys think? Looks pretty good. So this is pretty much the how the salute insha Allah should look.
Are you okay down there? Yeah. Is there anything you want to say to anyone? Was your institute you want to make two hours or something? Okay, yeah, let's as I call it, you can go back now.
So I hope in sha Allah that kind of at least helps a little bit of how the suit should look for the sisters. Remember, we have a section where we will talk about the five different ways and I will go through all the fifth rulings as well in sha Allah, of how a woman prays different from a man from especially from how she folds her hands, how she goes into the Royal Corps, and everything in this sujood and so on. We will talk about that once that section arises.
from the bar or the mistakes of the sujood
this is rare, but it does happen. And it is a misconception that a lot of people have with the sujood and that is that some of the Imams perform a such that to sell or that apologetic sajida or the such that of forgetfulness. Some mam's perform this when they have the gut instinct, that feeling inside of them, that there are non righteous people praying behind them. So what where's this all coming from? It was narrated by some of the companions that the prophets I send them prayed Salah till February one day, and he read suit at a room.
When the Sala was over what happened is that the prophets I send them turned around to the companions and said that there are still people amongst us who do not perfect their will do and as a result it has caused me to become confused when I recite so what did some mam's take this narration and do with them, basically when an Imam now semi memes when they recite and they're leading solder, and if they make a mistake in the recitation, the first thing they do is a turnaround is hates your fault, because there's some non righteous people in the gemera. And you guys caused me to make a mistake. First and foremost, this hadith is Latif, it is a week had Ethan because of a particular
person by the name of Chevy or Abner Naeem a billionaire in the scholars them they say scholars of Hadith say we don't know how just and how fair and honest this individual is. And obviously for a hadith to be Sahih, or had these to be hesson. Those two categories, you need somebody that has justice and has the reputation of being fair, honest and trustworthy amongst the people, it's not enough to just say, Look, I'm a trustworthy person, you have to have that reputation amongst the community as well. So because of this Indu individual who is part of this narration, scholars did not accept this narration. next mistake. This next the the next series of mistakes have to do with
the sitting position and the Tasha hood of prayer. Now, the first one is saying a seller more IRA can a human be warahmatullah Baraka, so sending solid and salam to the Prophet size send them is not the mistake itself. It's how it's done. Now the Arab speaking brothers and sisters, you will know exactly what I'm talking about. But for the rest of us, let's look at this very carefully. If you say a Selim or I like.
What this entails is that you're talking to someone who's in front of you. In other words, they are alive and they're and scholars they had an issue with this because when the prophets I seldom was alive. When he was alive, he ordered the companions to send peace and blessings to him in the prayer. As a matter of fact, there were a couple of instances where some companions only praised Allah, but they didn't send peace and blessings to the prophets I send them and the prophets I send them was made aware of that and he told them to repeat the salah and go and do this. So the question here is, what is the issue that scholars had, Abner how God says and I quote it has been
Narrated by a series of narrations some of the method of how the solid and the solemn to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam should be done, what has been ordered during his lifetime
is that they would say a seller more I like using the calf in that word I really care. Now that entails that somebody is alive and in front of you and well, but this here is not permitted now, because the Prophet sallallaahu it was sent him of course is not with us anymore. So what should we say instead? What should be said is you use the extension in Arabic We call this the dummy or you use the extension or the pronoun that suits with a position and circumstance of the province I sell them which obviously is not here with us anymore. So you will say, a sedum Island nabee warahmatullah. You You will say or salatu wa sallam Island B. So you will now omit or erase. I like
everybody with me so far. Shake your head if you're with me. Okay, good. Alhamdulillah I think most of us here are with me so far. So this is the quote of ebony hedgerow. And also this is the quote of the majority of our lemma. And by the way in hedger states, this quote in his explanation in federal bury, which is the explanation of Sahih Bukhari now, this is a linguistic technicality of the salam, you have to at least pay attention to a little bit of the Arabic language to understand where this is coming from. But again, it's a crucial point and it's part of the perfection of the Sala itself. The next hop or mistake when it comes to the
the the sitting position. Now the sitting position. Let's just talk about this very briefly is how do you send solid and Salim to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because why some people when they say aloha masala vada Mohammed while early Mohammed came also later Allah Ibrahim and so on, and they continue and they add a lot of extras to this Dora. There's only two ways that have authentic narrations of how you send solid and sell them to the prophesy sell them in his prayer. Here's the first one so just listen to it carefully and see if this sounds like what you're probably saying in your Salah at this moment. The prophets I send the mentions. This is the first way it
should be done. Allahumma salli ala Mohammed, what are the early Mohammed Kemal Slater Allah Ibrahim, what Allah Addy Ibrahim in naka hamidou Majeed Allahumma barik ala Muhammad wa ala de Mohammed gamma Baraka, Allah Ibrahim, what Allah early Ibrahim in NECA hamidou Majeed so that's the first way listen to the second way that has an authentic narration to it. Allahumma salli ala Mohammed and bl o me where Allah early Mohammed came out so later Allah Ibrahim wa barakaatuh Mohammed and below me what other early Mohammed came about Dr. Eddie Ibrahim a filler the mean in NACA, hamidou Majeed, so two narrations, both of these can be found in that little Dora book the
fortification of a Muslim or Christian and Muslim that do our book has both of these narrations in them as well. Otherwise, what they are lemma especially scholars of Hadith state, everything aside from these two manners. Now, scholars of Hadith as one brother was telling me, scholars of Hadith are like scholars that feed you an entire platter of food, whereas other scholars, they'll just give you bits and pieces, they'll give you snacks here and there. I thought this was really interesting, because whenever you're dealing with scholars of Hadith, they give you everything, they'll give you the Hadith, they'll give you the authenticity of the Hadith, where you can find it, and how that had
it became Sahara or die, so you get the entire platter right in front of you. Whereas other scholars, they will say this Hadeeth Asahi and leave you there, or they'll say it's so narrated invalid was there's nothing wrong with that. Just scholars of Hades, so panela there so they're in a completely different category from everyone else. So these two narrations here, of course, as I mentioned to you are authentic narrations that you can find them in all the authentic hadith books including behati Muslim and all the sudden books as well.
next mistake that we want to look at because there's really not much to discuss when it comes to the sitting position. There's really nothing much that we need to discuss.
But when it comes to the sitting position, the next mistake is the manner or the method of how the sitting is done. Now there's a number of ways of how you can sit. So this one here, let's come, let's get my volunteer really quickly.
So we're just going to sit this time you're going to face towards this direction, okay?
So now pretend you're sitting like you're just about to finish solar. So you're just gonna you're gonna vote to say send Imani right, okay, so Facebook could look completely. Okay. So here, what we're looking at is a couple of things. Number one
is his arms. The prophets, Allah lohani was selling Sallam when it came to his arms, his arms, he would try to avoid touching them on his legs as much as possible. There is one narration By the way, where scholars have a difference of opinion of how authentic this variation is, where the prophets of the lohani was said, No, Scheffler Benny says this hadith is so here, where this left hand is almost touching the left leg. So turn around. Now let's let's let everybody see what we're doing.
So this left hand is almost touching the leg, but this right hand is still Mr. theme, it's still straight up, no issues here. So this is one method that you can use, or the second method is both arms are straight. next issue when it comes to the tissue hood, is where the actual hands are placed. There are two ways that can be done. Both of them in sha Allah are correct, I found good evidences for both of them mm unknowingly mentioned in his memorial, both of them were as the hands they can be placed right over the knees itself, or they can be placed above the knee itself. So you have this method, or you have this method as well. So either or insha, Allah are good. When it comes
to the Tisha hood, talk about that in a moment. Next thing is that we want to look at is the feet. So now you're going to turn on Facebook Qibla turn around the other way, is the position of the feet and how it should look. So the brother here has got the idea so far, try to get all of your toes facing the Qibla. Not just the first few all of them. No, no, just on the right feet. So sit on your left feet good at perfect. That's how you want your Tisha hood to look. You don't want just a couple of the toes, you want to maximize every moment you want Allah azza wa jal to reward you for everything you're doing in the sada you see how simple these things are. This is just our own
carelessness that we're losing reward in our select for the simplest little things. So this is the first thing that you want to make sure you do. This is not easy. So if you're able to do it, by all means, if not at the best of your ability, you want to make sure that your back is straight as well. And that's how the T shirt or the sitting position should look like. Okay, I'm going to call on you maybe one more time. Okay, very good.
So that's the Tisha hood and how it should look just one more detail that we want to talk about. Some, it's part of a lot of customs if you'd like that there is no solid and no salom. To the prophets of Allah Holly was sent him in the first Tisha hood, right? So after you finish two records, say praying for after the tour tokachi, you're just saying to here to the level Salawat will tell you about all the way I should have Allah Allah in the lower shadow and number Hamadan, Rasulullah and then you stand up for the third rock era. This here according to some scholars is a hapa. It's a mistake of the Sala because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordered that every
single Tasha hood, it should have a solid and solemn to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so part of perfecting the solid now, just so you know, scholars differ on this, because there is another narration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he allowed some of the companions to just say a shadow Allah Allah He Illallah Sherwin amadora sola and stand up for the third la cara. So scholars differ on this issue because the prophesy Sam seems to be as though he's allowed both of these methods to happen. So here what I will say to you is very simple. The author here also encourages this as well. And that is, you want to try to make sure that we protect our seller and
maximize all the reward as much as possible. So when you say a shadow Allah, Allah in
Hello shadow Windham. comodoro sola and you want to stand up for the third load aka Allahumma salli, ala Muhammad Ali, Mohammed,
that is the minimum of the solid and the Salaam to the prophets, I seldom do at least the minimum and go into the third rocker, especially if you have the opportunity to do that if you don't have the opportunity, of course in the prayer behind Amen, then the first is sufficient enough. next mistake, this is one of the last mistakes, or last couple of mistakes is the raising of the fingers in the prayer in the shower, of course, now we've discussed this in one of our discussions that there are basically three main ways of how this should be done. So you can refer to that video, but I'll just go through it very briefly just for the sake of our discussion. The first method that are
lemme tell us some of how to use this index finger into childhood is number one,
is that the tashahhud finger is always facing the Qibla from the beginning of tashahhud until the end period. No ifs, ands, or buts, it's just facing the Qibla all the time. Number two,
the Tisha hood finger is starting off the beginning of the Tisha had the finger is facing the Qibla. But after you say, Why Chateau La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah and you start making Dora then your finger starts to bounce. Okay, it starts to do this tapping effect. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned, this tapping effect here is equivalent to taking a hammer and beating the shaitan over his head. So this is his Actually, it's sort of like a supernatural benefit. It's very powerful in and of itself. So this is the second way and then this is only done during Dora's so do it for the prophesied sell them and your own personal doors as well, you're doing this. The
third method is also a common one shuffle. Daniel Rahim Allah also mentioned this in his book, where you shake the finger throughout the entire show from beginning to end. A lot he brothers and sisters, just based on my own level in doing the research for this, Allah azza wa jal knows best, but they seem to be all correct. All of them seem to be authentic. And what I found even is that when I look at even Tommy's discussion about this, I find that even Tamia also doesn't really make a big deal out of it. It just basically says that all of these are Boolean, they're accepted, you know, so he doesn't really make a major issue out of it. So with that in mind, it's really not a
major issue, even with us when we do it in the solder. But we give it we try to formalize it at least so that we have those options and we try to utilize them as best as we can. Then the last thing that I want to say for our next discussion is
the doors that are recommended for the Tasha hood period, is the prophecy seller mentions that just before you say set MRT come on up until now before you say the test team. This is time when de la is accepted by Allah as Silla Jen and shareholder Daniel Rahim Allah mentions that the Dora that's encouraged during that time is to offer your parents. So you start to make a lot of draw for your parents, just before you're about to finish the prayer. It's also a crucial time. And then we'll talk about the different types of salons that can include a prayer as well how it should be done. So if you say in the salon, who should you be looking at? Should you be staring at the wall staring at
the ground staring at your shoulder like this? What should you do, then there are some mistakes regarding this. Some people when they say the salon, they close their eyes, I don't know for what I don't, I'm still trying to find like at least some history behind it. But if I mean, I don't know, I haven't found anything about it. But I've noticed this. And we want to talk a little bit about that as well. And that will conclude the sitting position of the Tisha hood. And that will take us in, of course, to the mistakes in a Masjid and the Sala in gemera. So this of course, we're going to talk about the mistakes in the event and in the karma in the tech abio. With all the gemera together, how
do we say Allahu Akbar as a jemar. And then we'll also talk about some of the rewards in the gym era, and some of the people's mistakes regarding certain practices in the gym. Some people like for example, standing feet, two feet, you ever noticed that you'll go to some Masjid, there's this wide gap between you and that person, but then you'll go to another Masjid and that person is cutting off your blood circulation. So where do you find the gap and what's the federal ruling behind all of this? So all of those things inshallah we will look at their own in the heat so having
said this will happen on Sunday. So brothers and sisters Sunday in sha Allah after motive we will meet here. We didn't get a chance to meet last week Sunday because there was a volunteer dinner from the conference happening upstairs. So that's why we didn't have a huddle by then, but we will have a halaqaat in sha Allah this Sunday after mclubbe May Allah subhanho wa Taala continue to increase us in increases in knowledge and wisdom and causes us to understand our religion and causes us to be close and have a strong relationship with the Quran and the Sunnah, and implemented in our lives each and every single day, while Afro derawan and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen I'll just spend like
a five or 10 minutes and we'll just take a couple questions inshallah.
