Salam Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:05--> 00:00:13

I was when I submitted the ministry times he was phenomenal Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. Karim Allah Allah he will be at Marine.

00:00:15--> 00:00:57

We've been talking about means by which our do as are accepted and as some of the narrations say that the dua of a person is suspended between the heavens and the earth until a person Sun Salawat on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allahumma salli wa sallam robotica applicable Asuka Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam to streaming cathedra when you send your peace and blessings upon him salAllahu alayhi wa sallam, the Euro travels to the heavens and he is the one who Allah subhanaw taala set to be amongst us on this earth with guidance from the heavens and was a mercy to all in the heavens and on earth. And subhanAllah as we do our prayers, we

00:00:57--> 00:01:44

begin our prayer with at hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen and we ended with Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad Anwar the early Mohammed terminal so late to Allah Brahim while he brought him in Nikka, hamidou Majeed, you begin your prayer with him with praise, you ended with Salawat it is one of the most noble ways to Invoke your Lord, it brings you close to Allah subhanaw taala in ways that no other vicar can, because Allah loves His Messenger SallAllahu it he was salam. And when you invoke Allah with his beloved one, then you automatically close the gap, the distance of your job, but I want to get very specific about what this means in terms of incorporating satellites into your app. And

00:01:44--> 00:02:28

there's a beautiful narration from obey of new capital, the Allahu Taala and one in which there is much discussion because it will be in all the allotted time and who comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and I want to see your lips moving sallallahu alayhi wa salam you can't say it enough by the way, you can't say enough. well below the Allah Tala annual comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and he tells him y'all this little Allah in neat, little salata, Alec, I tend to make plenty of prayers upon you. In one narration, I have a prayer in which I am making so I have a duty that I make and I increase in my Salawat upon you, how much of my day should I dedicate

00:02:28--> 00:02:29

to Salawat?

00:02:30--> 00:03:09

So he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, if I do 1/4 of my DUA and Salawat, would that be good? The prophets lie Selim told him that that would be good and you can increase. And he said the opposite of Allah, what if I make it half of my drought? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him that it will be good and you can increase and he said the otter sort of Allah What if I make it two thirds of my dua he said that that would be good and you can increase and he said, The eldest son Allah, what if I make the entirety of my dua salawat and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him if you do that it will be good for you. And he said, took the hammock while your

00:03:09--> 00:03:26

photo laka them book. Your concerns will all be removed and your sins will all be forgiven. This is a very interesting Hadith, multiple facets. I don't have time to go in depth into all of them, but it is a rich interpretation. Number one,

00:03:27--> 00:04:08

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is your noble brother. This was one of the episodes of the angel series when we talked about this concept. The moment Tamia Rahim Allah has a beautiful intervention on this hadith. This is referring to not the ThinApp portion of your DUA, not the praise person, portion of your job. Remember, your supplication is made up of thinner and pull up praise and ask, praise and request. So the thinner of Allah azza wa jal has to stay. The Hand of Allah has to stay the praise of Allah has to stay. This is referring to the pull up portion of the requests portion of your DUA, and we are taught as believers, not just to make dua for ourselves,

00:04:08--> 00:04:33

but to make dua out for each other for our brothers and sisters. And when you make dua for your brother or sister, an angel says, mean, well, that can be misery. I mean, and for you as well. So your mom and Samia Rahim Allah said So what then when you make dua for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, the most noble brother that you have ever had, not only is it the angel that says, anyone that can be Mythili, he Gibreel at his salon,

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

sons Salawat upon your 10 times, Allah Himself who is greater than Djibouti, and it has Salah sent Salawat upon you 10 times, Allah allows the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam to respond to your Salam. So Allah Gibreel Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on top of that, on top of that, Allah writes down 10 has an ad for you. Allah removes 10 C from you

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

And Allah raises you by 10 degrees $10 Yet, this is the virtue of one Salah en Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that's just one.

00:05:12--> 00:05:47

So what if you do that? 100 times? What if you do that? 50 times what if your heart is present? What if you feel a deep emotional attachment when you're doing it? So this is the first element of this that from the polar perspective, from the request perspective, what ask are you going to make of Allah that's going to give you those rewards? What ask are you going to make of Allah that's going to give you those rewards. Another element of this there might say, it may be that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was speaking to the case of obey of new capital, the Allahu Anhu specifically, because he knew he had a particular prayer that he was trying to make. Alright, he

00:05:47--> 00:06:26

knew he had a particular do and he wanted to make, and also allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was telling him that this will achieve what you are asking another. Another, saying in regards to this hadith that some of the relevant mentioned, is they said Al Quran. All of it in the Arabic language means Al Aqsa, most of it just like when aren't usually Allahu Taala and he says that all sort of La sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to fast all of Shaban couldn't loco CheMin a thorough the majority of it. So in the Arabic language, when you say all of it, it could mean that you mean the majority of it. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was just encouraging obey, or the Allahu Taala to

00:06:26--> 00:07:05

increase the portion that you're never going to max out. You're never gonna max out on Salawat in your job. Okay, and just like with Hemant, just like there is value in simply praising and thanking Allah subhanaw taala saying and hamdulillah there is value in simply saying salawat and simply reading a book of sila, reading some watching something that brings you closer to the Prophet sallallahu It Was Love You know, I never enjoyed recording anything like I did meeting Muhammad salallahu Salam, your heart feels like you talk about Him your heart feels like you hear about him, your heart feels light. There's a science to that that is divine. Took for hummock,

00:07:06--> 00:07:45

your concern is gone. When you talk about him. sallallahu alayhi wa salam, when you send prayers upon him, what are the scholars mentioned here, by the way, which is so profound? What are you going to ask Allah subhanaw taala for of this dunya except that you are seeking, but all through him, for Allah to remove some stress from you, everything you're asking Allah for in the category of worldly need, is, in some way, shape or form, the removal of a burden, right? Whether you're asking a lot to protect you from harm, or you're asking a lot to give you something of this world, you're asking all Allah to bless something of you of this world. What are you asking Allah for, except that you're

00:07:45--> 00:07:50

really seeking the removal of him of burden so that you could have contentment in this life?

00:07:51--> 00:08:30

And what are you seeking from Allah of the Hereafter, except that sins are a barrier to what you are asking for. And if those sins are removed, then you will achieve everything that you could be asking him for. You'll follow like a dumb book, your sins will all be forgiven. So if the sins are forgiven, then where do you go, Jana? The sins are the barrier between you and goodness in the Hereafter, just as stress as the barrier between you and goodness, and this life, and so on. Also, allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam says, If you increase in Salawat, your hem will be gone, your homework,

00:08:31--> 00:09:17

your stress is gone. And your forgiveness, your sins will all be forgiven. A lesson for this, from this for us, is to increase as much as we can to make it part of your wisdom to make it part of your daily remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala your daily supplication? That doesn't mean don't ask ALLAH that doesn't mean abandon all the other do is right the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam taught us many years that means that when you have a request to make of Allah, increase in the Salawat on Rasulullah sallallahu, it was salam. And I want you to think back. When does your heart feel lighter? When do you feel closer to your Lord, than when you are in proximity to the mention of the

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam How many of you have been to Medina?

00:09:23--> 00:09:26

Ever felt more happy and at peace than that?

00:09:27--> 00:09:27

No.

00:09:28--> 00:10:00

You never feel more at ease than when you're in proximity of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and walking in the footsteps of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when you read his sila, when you listen about him, when you interact with him, at those moments when you're feeling feeling that closeness even with your family, you know what, before I move on to the next chapter before I move on to the next lesson, let me take a step back and just say a lot more suddenly Allah Muhammad Ali Muhammad, oh Allah send your peace and blessings upon him upon his family, upon his companions. May Allah subhanaw taala

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

Allah sent His peace and blessings upon him. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to be plentiful in our Salawat upon him and may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to embody the traits of him that make us love him. And may Allah subhanaw taala join us with our beloved sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in it for the dose of Allah. Allahu Amin, wa salam, wa salam and barik ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine ceremony
