In terms of the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:00:06--> 00:00:14

Then this Salah became compulsory during the issara in the Mirage and ASR refers to the travel by night

00:00:15--> 00:00:16

from message

00:00:18--> 00:00:19

to Macedonia.

00:00:21--> 00:00:24

And we know in this journey the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed

00:00:27--> 00:00:30

and then the Raj which is the ascension to the heavens,

00:00:31--> 00:01:16

when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ascends to the heaven heavens, Allah subhanho wa Taala gives him a gift. Note the term gift, gift brothers and sisters in Islam, not a burden. Not an obligation is given a gift which is an obligation. Why, for our benefit, not for Allah's benefit, understand this and understand it well. Allah subhanho wa Taala he is perfect from ever, and he is perfect forever. Your prostration does not raise his majesty. And your sin does not decrease His Majesty. He was the creator before he created and the Most Merciful before he showed mercy to anybody. Allah doesn't need to do things to grow his portfolio, so

00:01:17--> 00:01:36

he doesn't need you to prostrate so that he can be Allah, the One who is worshipped. He was the one who is the who's the most deserving of being worshipped before anyone prostrated on the ground. subhanho wa Taala. Allah says names and attributes are not a result of his actions.

00:01:37--> 00:01:40

like you and me. The titles we hold

00:01:41--> 00:01:43

are a result of our action.

00:01:44--> 00:02:15

The title, but Allah subhanho wa Taala is different. Allah subhanho wa Taala his actions are a result of his names. His titles are not a result of his actions of Hannah who attack. He was the creator and Harlock that was his name. Before he created he never needed to create to be called an Khalid. subhanho wa Taala is clear. He was perfect he Allah is perfect from ever and perfect forever. So when Allah gives the Salah to the owner of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:02:17--> 00:02:22

Allah subhanho wa Taala is giving it for the benefit of the Ummah, not Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:23--> 00:02:28

Understand this and understand it well, and that is why Allah says in Surah

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

Allah says, Yeah, you have ness

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

unto

00:02:37--> 00:02:41

all mankind, you are all impoverished and poor.

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

With regards to your Lord,

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

Allah Who, who will honey

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

but Allah is Allah, honey

00:02:54--> 00:02:59

and honey, the absolutely rich, perpetual.

00:03:03--> 00:03:04

That's Allah.

00:03:05--> 00:03:18

And he's al Hamid and we described it today, the owner of all praise, whether you praise Him or you don't praise Him, or you pray or you don't pray, or you think or you don't think doesn't affect his reality, He's the owner of opress

00:03:19--> 00:03:21

This is the reality brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:03:22--> 00:03:28

That is the reality. It's not that Allah needs us to worship. No this Salah was given

00:03:29--> 00:03:43

as a gift to you and I, that by we worshiping, we will help ourselves and there's nothing greater in terms of helping ourselves besides the Salah, as we see from the lives of Gambia, ademu Salatu was Salam and this surah when Allah gave it he gave me
