Assalamu alaikum today I want to discuss slowing down in the month of Ramadan.

00:00:07--> 00:00:46

What I mean by slowing down is slowing down in our acts of worship, and in specific slowing down our prayer. Look, I know outside of the month of Ramadan, it's easy to feel like our prayer is just a ritual, we need to get it done, get it over as quick as possible and get back to work or go back to school and get back to doing whatever we were doing. Just get it out of the way. But in the month of Ramadan, as our spirituality comes into focus, this is the time where we can work on our prayer as well. And one of the ways we can accomplish that is simply by slowing down slowing down the prayer as a whole, but also slowing down the specific aspects or the specific parts of the prayer. So

00:00:46--> 00:01:24

spending more time in every position of the prayer. So when we are in the record, spending more time in record, letting our body settle into that position. Likewise, when we are incensed the letting our body settle into that sense, the also that means moving from one position to another position slowly so going into the court slowly coming out of the court slowly going into center slowly coming out of the stage that slowly making a conscious effort to beautify the physical aspects of our prayer. I know we make an effort to beautify other aspects of our prayer which beautify our recitation and so on and so forth. But likewise, making the physical aspects of the prayer, the

00:01:24--> 00:01:58

movements of the prayer, beautiful as well. Another way we can slow down our prayer, what would help in slowing down our prayer is making sure that we have enough time to pray Our prayer meeting, not waiting until the last minute to pray the prayer. So making sure there's enough time, so not delaying until just offset is about to come. We're not doing awesome, until just momentum is about to come, for example, and actually the person that um, gave us this very specific example, as I said, I'm actually referred to this prayer as a prayer of the hypocrite press that have said this is the prayer of the hypocrite, the one who waits until the sun is just about to set and then they

00:01:58--> 00:02:34

quickly pick out for a cause of prayer, la Yokota la mafia in la calidad. This person doesn't remember a lie in these four other cars except for just a little bit. There's very little time they're rushing to the prayer, they're trying to get it done. So there's no time to remember a lot. There's no time to beautify the prayer there's no time for the heart to be settled in this prayer in this heart to really benefit from this prayer. You know, and I mentioned this point about Ramadan before that sometimes we get caught up in numbers and amounts and so on and so forth. Our priority in Milan should be just like our priority outside of the month of Ramadan and that is our obligatory

00:02:34--> 00:03:12

our fund prayers and bet making the most of those fun prayers. So we shouldn't be spending the most amount of effort in beautifying and perfecting our prayers. Before we ever turned to the suddenness of the new iPhone and tada we had a family and obviously we can do both. That is the best but our focus should be our prayers, making them the best, the most beautiful, the most beneficial prayers possible. So take advantage of the spirituality of the month of Ramadan take advantage of the blessings of the month of Ramadan. We all know and understand that it is easier to worship Allah in the month of Ramadan, so use this time to help beautify your prayer. Take your time when it comes to

00:03:12--> 00:03:20

your prayers, at the very least, and Allah Hafiz para tiada knows best Take care. I said I want to equal what I meant the law hate or what I can do.
