In todays episode, Sh. Omar Suleiman reflects upon a prayer made by a tree and the beauty of prostration.

[ Day 15 Du’a ] اللّهُمّ اكتُبْ لي بِهَا عِنْدَكَ أَجْراً، وَضَعْ عَنِّيْ بِهَا وِزْراً، وَاجْعَلْهَا لِيْ عِندَكَ ذُخْراً، وَتَقَبّلْهَا مِنِّيْ كَمَا تَقَبَّلْتَهَا مِنْ عَبْدِكَ دَاوُدَ عَلَيْهِ الصَّلاةُ والسَّلامُ

O Allah, write for me a reward with You because of it (the prostration), and remove from me a sin because of it, and stow it for me as a treasure with You, and accept it from me as You accepted it from Your servant David (Dawud), upon him be blessings and peace.

So now on camera and saliva counts everyone welcome back to prayers of the pious.

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

So we've done the prayers of people that aren't entirely heroes or villains, we've done the prayers of many of the companions, and many of the writers, predecessors and scholars and some unknown people as well, that that were able to even benefit some of those great scholars. How about the drought of a tree, the prayer of a tree. Now, this is a hadith it's not authentic hadith, of a man that saw a dream

00:00:33--> 00:01:15

of a tree making there and he conveyed that to the Prophet peace be upon him. So the prophets I seldom used to ask the companions who amongst you saw a dream last night that we could benefit from a good dream that we could all benefit from. and in this situation, you have this man that says to the Prophet, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, or messenger of God, I saw last night, a dream, a very strange dream. He said that while I was sleeping, Kenny will suddenly have a shadow. It was as if I was praying behind the tree. So there was a tree that was basically my mmm and dreams obviously can have different symbols and different meanings. So I'm praying and there's a tree in front of me, he

00:01:15--> 00:01:15

says,

00:01:16--> 00:02:12

So, I made sujood for sogetsu, for Santa to shadow, and so the, the tree prostrated as well I prostrate it and the tree prostrated as well. And then I heard the tree make do make the supplication the tree said Allahumma tably a lot of muck probably behind the calves Allah Allah write me a write for me a reward with you because of this prostration well, Nah, I need to be her wisdom and remove from me a sin because of its what john Hurley and aka the Quran, and stole it for me as a treasure with you. What's a cappella mini came out of belta Harmon abacha de la his salatu salam and accept it from me as you have accepted it from your servant that would lay his son out.

00:02:12--> 00:02:48

Alright, so this is a very interesting Hadith again, the tree was making this drought in his dream and obviously it's not an actual tree but there's he's learning a prayer in this and of course, everything glorifies the loss of animals and all of this glorifies Allah. But I can not tough the hornet's nest be home as Allah says you don't understand their glorification. But in this situation, Oh Allah. right for me a reward with you because of this such that because of this prostration allow him to leave behind the Godzilla. Although we have Islam and removed from me a sin because of this frustration with john Hurley and Decker Laura and stole it for me as a treasure with you. What's a

00:02:48--> 00:03:20

call Bell her mini came out and got the taco bell to him in abracadabra whoo Danny his Salatu was Salam and accept it from me as you have accepted it from your servant, would it his salatu salam, peace and blessings be upon him? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved this, so much. This this particular narration and saw it as a form of divine wisdom and pleasure. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually made sujood he himself prostrated it his salatu salam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made the same

00:03:21--> 00:04:01

with that sujood which teaches us you know, many lessons and this has had this hadith and Sunnah tournament the it's an authentic hadith from an Hasina Mohammed, may Allah be pleased with him. One of the things that we take from this is that as you're making sujood, as you are prostrating, recognize that the most beloved station the most beloved position that you are in with Allah subhanaw taala is your prostration and this is a lesson that Sophia Mariana Rahim Allah mentioned, that only the human being has been created to make the JuTh perfectly, to prostrate perfectly that our bodies are created to pray, our bodies are created to prostrate that all of our limbs, touch the

00:04:01--> 00:04:36

ground the way that they do with our heads, our foreheads on the ground, calling upon Allah subhanaw taala in prayer and humility, and there is nothing more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala than that the prophets lie so I mentioned that you are closest to a lot in your prostration so when you go into situations when you go into prostration that's your time to make a very special prayer. A very personal prayer especially in the know often especially in the voluntary prayers between you and Allah subhanho to Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our prayers May Allah subhanaw taala accept our prostrations. May Allah subhana wa tada allow that humility to be conveyed in our

00:04:36--> 00:04:47

prostration to him in our prayer and outside as well in obedience to His commands alumna I mean zakum aloha aina and I'll see you all next time in sha Allah wa Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah. He will go to catch up.
