As you can see from my background, I am back in Sydney. In fact, from yesterday's episode, you would have

00:00:25--> 00:01:07

deduced the same candlelight was a wonderful wonderful trip to Brisbane and the Gold Coast and seeing Subhanallah the many Muslims settled on the most eastern part of the globe engaged in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala during the blessed month of Ramadan meeting wonderful Imams wonderful scholars and and just such hospitality experiencing the kindness and the selflessness of our brothers and sisters there as we see also here in Sydney. May Allah subhanaw taala bless everyone involved and except from us all I mean tomorrow inshallah we head out to Melbourne and for a couple of days and meet our Muslim brothers and sisters, the members of the Muhammad sallallahu

00:01:07--> 00:01:24

alayhi wa sallam there and run some throwaway programs and then I will return to Sydney and then inshallah we will see where Allah subhanho wa Taala takes us. We will move on to other lands MILVUS panaway Attallah preservers in his obedience, I mean, for today's episode, I want to share with you a narration in Sahih al Bukhari.

00:01:25--> 00:01:36

Aisha Radi Allahu Allah is the narrator of this hadith. And she says that once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent a group of his companions out on an expedition and

00:01:37--> 00:02:16

obviously, as per the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would select a lead and that lead them would lead them in the prayer when he would pray in the Salah. He would pray and then he would end his presentation with sudo today laughs boohoo Allahu Ahad Allahu Samad Let me welcome you let me echo local foreigner had and he was doing this as a habit. So when they got back immediately, convenience went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and asked him about this, this is what he does. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, Go and ask him why he does this. And then he responded back by saying that because the class is full of the wonderful

00:02:16--> 00:02:56

qualities and names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa taala. So I love to recite it. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, tell him that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves him. ilaha IL Allah, a true moment with Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala love us. Now there's so many talking points, Brothers and Sisters in Islam from this narration from them, no doubt the importance of staying away from innovation do not innovate in the religion, be the AI has no place in the religion. And obviously the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam asked his companions to ask this person why because based on his intention, would it be known whether he was innovating

00:02:56--> 00:03:32

or whether he wasn't innovating we know that in Salah you can recite what you want hamdulillah but if you reciting it as a form of a rule, and it becomes a norm and you believe that this is part and parcel of the religion, then this would be problematic. And his response was, was was otherwise right. So he he said that he basically responses he responded by saying that I'm only doing it out of love, not out of belief that there's any obligation upon us. So this is from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he loves Allah so much he loves the qualities mentioned in the Surah and when he reads it, he feels closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and as he does it, so the

00:03:32--> 00:04:16

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah loves him sort of to the class, no doubt, brothers and sisters, that Islam is a Surah dedicated to the unity of Allah subhanho wa Taala in his in his lordship, it is Rubia Subhana what Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals in it, that say to them on Muhammad that Allah subhanho wa Taala is one in unique and he is a Samad, the one upon who everything in existence is dependent upon. No one gave birth to him, nor did he give birth to anyone, and there is nothing like Allah subhana what Lisa can with the che, or Samuel bustle, there's nothing like him. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is the old hearing the oil scene Surah to the

00:04:16--> 00:04:53

class also Brothers and Sisters in Islam is tantamount to a third of the Quran. It doesn't mean that if you want to complete the Quran that you just read three times to the class, but what it means is that its rewards are greater. And it also means that its meanings encompass Subhanallah a third of the Quran. But no doubt, if you recite it, you get the rewards of reciting a third of the Quran insha Allah as some of the scholars have deduced from this narration of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam However, that doesn't absolve anyone from reciting the Quran cover to cover, page by page line by line word by word because also in this they are rewards not just the rewards of reading a

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

third of the Quran or two thirds or three thirds but also the rewards of the effort spent the rewards of the time your lips move your tongue move

00:05:00--> 00:05:25

And we spoke about this in earlier moments with Allah sessions about when our recitations are rewarded the rewards the rewards of being recitation, and that is obviously when our lips move and our tongues move. So I leave you with this lesson with this narration from Sahil Bukhari upon the authority of Aisha Radi Allahu Allah for today's moment with Allah subhanho wa Taala and I love you all for the sake of Allah and until next time, salaam Allah Alikum warahmatu over cat
