Villa hirable Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. Karim Allah Allah He asked me to marry.
We've been talking about means by which our do as are accepted and some of the narrations say that the dua of a person is suspended between the heavens and the earth until a person son Salawat on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allahumma salli wa sallam of Africa applicable Asuka Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam to seemingly cathedra when you send your peace and blessings upon him sallallahu 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 begin
our prayer with at hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen and we ended with Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad Anwar Ali Mohammed terminals are later Brahim, while early Ibrahim in Naka, Hamedan Majeed, you begin your prayer with hems with praise you ended with Salawat it is one of the most noble ways to Invoke your Lord, it brings you close to Allah subhana wa Tada in ways that no other decoder can, because Allah loves His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And when you invoke Allah with his beloved one, then you automatically close the gap, the distance of your DUA, but I want to get very specific about what this means in terms of incorporating satellites into your app. And there's a beautiful
narration from obey of new capital, the Allahu Taala and one in which there is much discussion because obeyed all the allowance on 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 obaidul The alonside annual comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he tells him Yes, Lord Allah in the booklet or salata, I like 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 draft should I dedicate to Salawat?
So he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 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, Yabba salah, 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 other sort of law what if I make it two thirds of my dua he said that that would be good and you can increase. And he said he also Allah, what if I make the entirety of my dua salawat and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam told him, if you do that, it will be good for you. And he said, took the hammock, while your photo locker
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,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is your noble brother. This was one of the episodes of the angel series and we talked about this concept, the madman Tamia Rahim, Allah is a beautiful intervention on this hadith. This is referring to not the ThinApp portion of your DUA, not the praise person, a portion of your draft. Remember, your supplication is made up of thinner and pull up praise and ask praise and requests. 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 polyp portion, the requests portion of your DUA, and we are taught as believers not just to make do out for ourselves,
but to make do out for each other for our brothers and sisters. And when you make you're out for your brother or sister, an angel says, mean, well, that could be with me. I mean, and for you as well. So you might even say to him, Allah said So what then when you make dua for the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam, the most noble brother that you have ever had, not only is it the angel that says, you know, that can be Mythili he Gibreel it has salaam,
sons Salawat upon your 10 times, Allah Himself who is greater than Djibouti, and it has Salam. Sen. Salawat upon your 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 seats from you, and Allah raises you by 10 degrees $10 jet This is the virtue of one Salah on us
Total allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that's just one.
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 taller perspective, from the request perspective, what ask are you going to make of Allah that's going to give you those rewards? What asked 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 Allah and was specifically because he knew he had a particular prayer that he was trying to make. Alright, he knew
he had a particular due out 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 I'll kill all of it in the Arabic language means a club, most of it just like when aren't you shall have the Allahu Taala on her says that also allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to fast all of Shaban couldn't know who Shimon ACARA who 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 all the Allahu
Taala and to increase the portion that you're never going to max out. You're never going to max out on salawat and your DUA. 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 alayhi wa sallam, you know, I never enjoyed recording anything like I did meeting Muhammad Sallallahu it was something your heart feels like you talk about Him your heart feels like you hear about him, your heart feels like there's a science to that, that is divine. Took
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
really seeking the removal of him of burden so that you could have contentment in this life?
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 damn book, your sins will all be forgiven. So if the sins are forgiven, then where do you go? Jana? The sensor 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 sallam says, If you increase in Salawat, your hem will be gone, your homework,
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 acts right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam taught us many drives that means that when you have a request to make of Allah, increase in the Salawat on Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, 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
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? How many of you have been to Medina?
Ever felt more happy and at peace than that? No.
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 Sierra, 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, Allah who will suddenly Anna Mohammed didn't run early Muhammad, oh Allah send your peace and blessings upon him upon his family, upon his companions. May Allah subhanaw taala send His peace and blessings upon him. And may Allah subhanaw
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 alpha Dosen Allah Allahu Amin wa salam, wa salam and baraka and Nabina Muhammad while early he also could be Ultramarine ceremony
