Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh everyone I pray you all well and
making the most of the last 10 days and nights of Ramadan, Allah subhana wa tada except for my son back in Riyadh, after an amazing couple of nights in Mecca, Los Santos Allah accept all our efforts, I mean, brothers and sisters in Islam
in Surah milone, Allah subhanho wa tada
really emphasizes the importance of sada really, really emphasizes the importance of salah and mentions that the successful ones are the believers, those who are diligent with this.
And then Allah subhanho wa Taala explains, again, the believers who are successful as those who protected the salah and were guardians over the Salah, they cared for this Salah they will upon this letter on time, every time brothers and sisters in Islam
the key to gender is slider.
understanding how successful you are as a human being or how unsuccessful you are as a human being really boils down to how successful you are with the prayer. And I'm not just talking about being punctual with it. I'm talking also about the quality of the prayer.
The first thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala will ask us about on the DFP ama is the seller.
If the seller stands
then all our other deeds will stand. If the seller doesn't stand, then all your other good deeds will mean nothing.
All your other good deeds, all our good deeds, may Allah protect us all will mean nothing. It's as if all the deeds will be waiting for the chance to shine.
cheering on Salah, hoping that sort of stands up, hoping that Salah is passed, so that Allah subhanho wa Taala now looks at the other deeds
salatu salam, his words were on the tip of the tongue of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as he was passing away as well, as he was feeling the pangs of death as he was feeling the pains of death as he was feeling the reality of the soul being separated from the body.
He was going through what he was going through.
But such love and concern he had for the oma he couldn't help but teach the oma and as his parting words he shouted out a sweater of sweater Oh my alma your sada your Salah, whatever you do, look after your Salah, whatever happens. Look after your salad, this Salah look after it's the key. It's the key. How are we with our celebrities and sisters in Islam? How are our children with this letter? How are our students with this letter how our neighbors with the Salah.
We Allah subhana wa Taala protect us
because a cursory look teaches us that we have three groups of people with regards to Salah, a group that never pray. And that is dangerous. And you understand how dangerous that is from what I've just shared.
They have a standing in front of Allah, and it's going to be a dangerous attack.
And Allah protect us from this group.
And then we have the second group who pray, but they're not
diligent with the prayer. They're not punctual with the prayer. They're not regular with the prayer. They pray when it's convenient. Someone calls them to pray they pray when they finish working. All right. All right now I can pray I have nothing to do finish playing Okay. Let's pray. Right? Might have access to a Masjid. Prayer at home.
Right for the males. The pleasure of prayer,
prayer at home, you know they their relationship with the Salah, it's a relationship of convenience, not a relationship of diligence and determination.
And this group no doubt is better than the first group. But this is a dangerous group to be part of because
anything could happen and you could easily slip into the first group may Allah protects us.
And then we have the third group and the third group that I described a loss of Hannah who are the that I share with you holds the description that Allah subhanho wa Taala shares in his book about those who pray and especially at the beginning of surah tumino and levina, whom Allah subhana wa team you have with one allele in a home and also select him there even when they are upon their Salah, punctual, regular, diligent, determined and then they are
Upon their Salah as protectors as guardians, they understand that the Salah was a gift from Allah to the ummah. And if we look after it, we only stand to benefit our prostrations. Don't raise the majesty of Allah and our failure to pray does not decrease the majesty of Allah. He is perfect from ever and is perfect forever. He has created agenda, he has made this the key to gender, and he gave Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the key to give us and he taught us that if we look after the key, we will get into gender. But if we waste the key, then this is a grand show of disrespect to the gift that Allah gave you. That is being rude brothers and sisters in Islam. And for those who
are rude with this gift, and don't appreciate the gift of the gift. Then they will be put in the Hellfire May Allah protect us. Brothers and sisters in Islam, and hamdulillah This is Ramadan. This is the last 10 nights of Ramadan. You know if this is the grand period for Salah, this is the time to make it happen. hamdulillah you are listening to me are breathing. And as long as you breathe in, you never ever lose hope in the mercy of Allah. I'm not sharing any messages for anyone to lose hope brothers and sisters, but I'm sharing what I share in the spirit of not sweeping retrogression under the carpet bad behavior under the carpet but calling a spade a spade and not a big spoon as you
always hear me say in that common statement that is mentioned in Africa I call things for what they are. It doesn't mean that we call things what they are that we're trying to offend anyone. Are we trying to make someone sad? Absolutely not brothers and sisters in Islam. I share what I share so that we take heat, we take heed and we correct ourselves because as long as we breathing, we never ever lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala we tend back to Allah, we sincerely seek forgiveness, and we make a wish show a determination to positively change and become a better people, brothers and sisters in Islam. You know, if there's anything you want to take away from this
Ramadan is moving to the rest of the months of the year having a better relationship with your son. Indeed this greatness in it will also
cause us to live upon our salah and pass away upon our salah and meet Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah to Allah with our solar in great shape with our solar be a means for us in this life and the next immediate open I mean, brothers and sisters again I say don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah rather assess and fix and before fixing seek forgiveness these are the nights of forgiveness or lower forgive you and I want you to ask a level of forgiveness not doubting that Allah has forgiven you. ask Allah for forgiveness, believing that Allah has not only forgiven you but converted your bad deeds to good deeds and smile and move forward. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala is our man the
Most Merciful. Salah to Salah brothers and sisters in Islam Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
