Ma'am has an embassy Rahim Allah He says that the Salah is the narrow lodge of the believer it is the assent of the believer to say that when you pray you are connecting directly with Allah subhana wa Taala. And you are ascending in a way that resembles the ascending of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he received the command for the prayer as he was in the heavens on the night of it, it's not when I lost the law while he was alone. So prayer is very intimate. It's very powerful. But we know having not had the ability to pray normally in the massage the way that we used to. It's different when you pray behind any man with a beautiful voice. When you pray in a congregation. What

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

was it then to go and pray every single Salaam behind the Prophet sallallahu wasallam who received that command himself?

00:00:54--> 00:01:32

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would come out to leave the Salah, and he had a very unique way of reciting the Quran. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Of course he was the one who received the Quran sallallahu wasallam. Of course, you can expect that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would take care of every position of the salon and each wrecker, not something special to him. sallallahu it was someone praying behind him the motions were perfected by him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but what was his recitation like the Prophet slicin them? He had a beautiful voice a special voice remember Qatada? Rahim, Allah said has an allege has an assault, that every prophet

00:01:32--> 00:02:14

had a beautiful face and a beautiful voice. And when he would recite the answer Allah heart and he was Salaam, Khanna, yucca or Pirata. He used to pause between the verses and he used to draw out his recitation crisply and clearly so just like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to speak slowly on his Salatu was Salam and articulate properly. The recitation of the prophets lie Selim was slow and every verse was recited separately. He also had a beautiful natural melody to his voice, and his voice was described as not being too loud, so it was loud enough to where you could hear him. And if you were praying, or if you were near his house while he was praying sallallahu it was

00:02:14--> 00:02:56

something you could hear him from his courtyard as he was reciting sallallahu wasallam. Now, the prophet sly son would frequently get emotional as he was reciting the poor, but the way that the prophets lysozyme would cry when he would recite the Quran was also unique. They described the crying of the Prophet slicin them in his recitation, as if there was a wheezing from his chest and a humming from his chest like a boiling kettle pot. Somehow, let's just like how his laughter wasn't really Audible, but it was just a wider smile than his usual smile. Likewise, the prophets license weeping was also dignified. It wasn't very loud. sallallahu wasallam but it was so sincere and you

00:02:56--> 00:03:35

could tell that it was coming from a place deep within his chest sallallahu wasallam and his eyes used to shed tears profusely, the tears would be coming down from the profits license eyes, even if he was not making the sound of loud weeping a beloved Masaru little the low tide on who of course has this famous incident where he says that the profit slice and I'm told him to read and to him, and I've loved Mr. Little DLR, and also Dr. sulla aacrao and equally cones that you want me to read to you and it was revealed to you and the profit slice I'm set, I love to hear it from other than me. So he said, I read Surah Nisa. And when I got to a particular verse for kayfabe Ajit and I'm

00:03:35--> 00:04:14

incredibly honored to be Shaheed How will it be when we bring upon every oma a witness, and we bring you Oh, Mohammed slice and I'm upon all of them a witness, the Prophet slicin put his hand on my knee and he said, I spoke enough and I looked up and he said, the prophet sly somes eyes were like faucets he was flowing with Tierra sallallahu wasallam but he didn't notice about the Allahu taala at home because the prophets lie Selim would not weep loudly it his sloths was snapped but a deep sincere, crying from the heart sallallahu it was sent him that led to his eyes always being moist it his Salatu was Salam. Now, the prophets lie some of course would connect with Allah subhanho wa

00:04:14--> 00:04:50

Taala in his Salah, whether it was an obligatory prayer, or a voluntary prayer, but the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not torture those that were behind him by getting lost in his colossal Allah why he was sullen and prolonging it when others were praying behind him and no one loved his prayer like the messenger sallallahu wasallam. But he said that when you lead the follow up, when you lead the obligatory prayer, then keep it short, because you have behind you, the elderly, the sick, the women that come with their children, and those who have to run errands. So the prophets lie some Salah was not long when he was leading the father when he was leading the

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

obligatory prayer. And in fact, if the Prophet salallahu it was set him heard children cry in the salon. He would not, you know, reprimand the parents after the salon. The problem

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

It's my son would actually speed up his prayer at his Salatu was Salam and not recommend the parents but the Prophet slice alum himself understood what it was like to be a parent or a grandparent, with children in Salah. There were times that Hassan will Hussein may Allah be pleased with them particularly hesson will be allowed to Allah and who would come and jump on the prophets lie Selim yes in the fuddled as he was Institute and the Prophet slicin would wait for him on his back so that he would not harm him, or mama or the Allahu taala and her she came to the Prophet slicin them as a baby girl, prophets lysozyme held her in his arms as he led the Salah, and then he put her down when

00:05:36--> 00:06:16

he would do the son of the son Lola, who it he was lm so his felt prayer was a beautiful prayer to follow him in. And you heard his sincerity, even though he would not recite long Salah Hardy was someone you enjoyed his beautiful recitation. But what about the voluntary prayer? Now it's a normal man and we can understand you know how much we long for us a lot to tell you in its full function, and even the Sahaba of the Prophet slice Allah. When the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam used to lead the prayers. In the first few nights of Ramadan, the masjid got so full, that it could not even hold the people in there. So even in the time of the companions, the prophet slice alum had that

00:06:16--> 00:06:48

response from the Sahaba, who wanted to come and listen to him read all night, and of course, the prophet slice alum, he stopped doing so because he didn't want to become a fuddled on the people. He didn't want it to become an obligation on the people. Now they didn't have Sabbath or the Allahu taala. And who has this interesting narration, he says the prophets lie Selim had set up this chamber in the masjid, and he would come out at night and he would pray there in this particular location in the masjid. And the people started to hear and that's what would happen, they'd hear that the Prophet sly son was praying, they call the others and they start praying behind him

00:06:48--> 00:07:23

sallallahu wasallam So, on the nights that the prophets lie, some would not come What would they do? He said, they would cough they would you know, go out of his door slice a lamb they raise their voices a bit. He even says that they would throw some pebbles in the direction of the door of the Prophet slice of them hoping that he would hear their voices and he would come out and lead them in colossal Allahu it he was alone. So the prophet SAW some came out to them one night and he was upset and he said, you had enough Oh, people, you kept on doing this until I thought that it was going to be prescribed for you. So offer your prayers in your houses because a man's prayer is better in his

00:07:23--> 00:08:01

house, except for a Mac two backs up for the obligatory prayer. But if you were blessed enough to pray behind him in the voluntary prayers, you might actually regret it. And then Miss Ruth or the Allah tada and hold the same man Subhana Allah, who took so many suitors fresh from the mouth of the prophets lie Selim. He said one time I prayed behind him sallallahu it was something I saw him praying pm and I prayed behind him, and he said him to be amblin so you know, I thought to do something bad. And they said What was that? He said, I thought to actually leave the profit slice a midway like while he was in sujood. I'd run away from the salon because of how long it was. Are they

00:08:01--> 00:08:36

familiar man will the law I know he has a famous story. He says one time the Prophet slicin was praying pm I thought let me join him. I joined him and he started reading a Bukhara and the first slacker. He said I thought he'd stopped at 100 verses sallallahu alayhi wasallam but then he kept going then he said I thought he stopped at 200 the profit slice I'm finished 200 then he said I thought he stopped at bacara the profit slice I'm finished at a bunker and he started suit at the Nisa. Same thing I thought 100 versus he finished a Nisa altogether. Then he finished earlier in Milan all of its summer lahardee he was selling then he went into his record and her they familiar

00:08:36--> 00:09:16

answers are solo slightly cylinders recall that was as long as his standing up and his sujood each says there was as long as the standing up in the record. And then the second record, he continued to read a lot either and he kept on going with the long sodas on selling model the allowance data and he says that one time the profit slice I'm read a sub alclad the long surah is the seven long sutras in one record sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So in the form of prayer, you enjoyed it, but he kept it short. If you prayed Qian behind the messenger sallallahu wasallam. He was connected to his Lord sallallahu Sallam and he would take his time slot was Ceylon enjoying his recitation, the beautiful

00:09:16--> 00:09:23
