Santa Monica, cattle peacefully with you, my dear brothers and sisters, this is your brother almost Lima. You know, the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him suffered all kinds of hurt and all kinds of tribulation in his life. And in fact, from every aspect, you know, when it comes to emotionally, his father, you know, passed away before he was even born his mother, when he was only six years old, and then his grandfather only a few years after that, three years after that, and the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, you know, he lived the life of an orphan, he had, you know, he had a very rough life in terms of making his financial income, you know, he had a rough life, even as a

00:00:46--> 00:01:25

messenger, in fact, peace be upon him, his his troubles and tribulations and the trials that he faced, were only increased when he received revelation. And then he was humiliated, he was tortured, the only thing that he had, which was his name, was also dragged through the mud and instead of being assaulted, I mean, the most honest and the most trustworthy, you know, he was being called names like sorcerer, and liar, and poets and all kinds of nasty names are being hurled at him, you know, he's placed under economic boycott, and he loses his uncle, olive, who is his source of physical protection, he loses Khadija or the Allahu Allah, may Allah be pleased with her, his wife,

00:01:25--> 00:02:05

who was the woman that he first went to, when he had when he was first having those experiences with the revelations, she was always his source of comfort. And he thought that, you know, maybe at least this would open up for the Dow for his call. And then he went to the pot, and he received the worst, you know, experience of his life. And he used to tell it, so that that was indeed the worst day of his life. And in that context, Allah calls the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him up through the heavens, to give him a special gift. And that was the gift of Salah, the gift of prayer. And just as he called Musa Moses, peace be upon him. And he called him to the valley and he spoke directly to

00:02:05--> 00:02:43

Moses to Masada, he stood up, and he gave most of that gift of speaking directly to him and of enjoying the conversation with God. Likewise, Allah called the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him up. And he gave him that beautiful command of prayer as a gift. And in essence, the reason why he gave it to him in this context was he allowed him to experience all of the bitterness of this world so that he could fully appreciate the sweetness of the prayer. And so the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him receives that command of 50 prayers. And likewise, you know, as this was the only command that was given, you know, in the heavens and not on the earth. Likewise, as the great scholar Imam

00:02:43--> 00:03:19

Hassan buslee, said, while the Allahu anhu that a Salatu Mirage meant that prayer is actually the ascension of the believer, meaning if you want to ascend through the heavens, the way the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him did, then you ascend through that prayer, you speak directly to the one to the one who spoke to the Prophet peace be upon him, and we enjoyed those conversations with him. And the Prophet peace be upon him actually met Moses peace be upon him, and as he met many other prophets, you know, on that journey, and when Moses peace be upon him heard that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was given 50 prayers, he told them, Look, I've been through this before we have

00:03:19--> 00:03:57

similar nations, your people will not be able to handle this, go back to Allah go back to God and tell him to lighten it. And so it was lightened first to 25 and then to 10. And then finally to five. And Moses told the Prophet peace be upon him, you know, go back up and ask God for a further reduction, they won't be able to handle it. And the Prophet felt shy, peace be upon him from Allah. And then it was said that it was said to the Prophet peace be upon him, that the oma that the Nation of Muhammad peace be upon him would still get the reward of 50 prayers, just through those five prayers. And in essence, I want you to think about this for a moment. The reason why the Prophet

00:03:57--> 00:04:38

Muhammad peace be upon them surgery that correlate to it for Salah that the that the coolness of my eyes was placed in my prayer is because God gave it to him as a gift as an escape from this world so that he could taste the sweetness of that relationship with God. And so whenever anything happened, whenever anything troubled him, he would always run back to the prayer. And he'd always find his comfort, behavioural comfort us with it, oh, Bella, and we find that God, Allah actually breaks us away from the dunya at least five times a day from this world, so that we can also put things in perspective and understand that true happiness and contentment lies in conversing with the most high

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

and in speaking with a lot and turning back to the creator and ascending through the heavens and having that connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And on you know, On a final note, I just want you to think about this. The scholar said very beautifully, that God prescribed in five prayers, the reward of 50, and the original command was 50. And can you imagine

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

And if our lives were spent every single day we had to pray 50 prayers and that is an essence to tell us that the intent of our life The reason why we were created when the holux in general, incidentally Abu Dhabi, we were created to worship. We asked God to make us amongst this pious worshipers, and those who connect to him through prayer in following the example of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon disaster, well hyena was Salam Alikum obika
