Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters in Islam welcome to episode number 21 moments with the Quran for today's moment we're going to take an ayah from Surah Maryam in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says for haulover Mula Bandha de him Alba Sana tell what about Shahada Silva yeah Luke oh now yeah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala after teaching us of the prophets and the messengers and how diligent they will with this Allah, then teaching us of the people who came after them who walked in their footsteps and also how diligent they too well with their Salah Allah tells us of a people who came thereafter who went against the way of the former people. What
did they do? They followed their desires and they left their Salah they wasted their Salah
Allah subhanho wa Taala says for Sophia Olivia, they will be flung into the Hellfire and lie over here, as taught to us by an explanation by Eben Massoud robiola, who am the famous Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the scholar of the Quran. He told us as we find in si si robina behead him and as mentioned by mumble Bay happy in his book and bathroom and Lucia we learn from a statement of his that alibi refers to a river of scale being hot water in Johanna Aloha, Mr. X so this will be the punishment. Now Subhanallah brothers and sisters in Islam, I mean, there's no mincing of, of messaging here. Right. It's very clear how important Salah is as a rule, and how
deadly and severe the punishment is, for the one who lacks diligent with their Salah, wasting Salah as we find in this ayah some of the scholars have said it refers to a person who left their Salah. Okay. And some other scholars. For example,
a great scholar from the time of the tambourine, whose name was awesome, even muhammara he says that wasting Salah here refers to a people who prayed their Salah after it's fixed and prescribed time. So when the Salah came in, they preferred their play, they preferred their work and matters of this life over their salah and then the time would finish and then they would observe the Salah as Kava after it's fixed, and prescribed time they prefer the dunya the life of this world over their meeting with the Lord. So handled our brothers and sisters in Islam.
Salah is something that messengers call towards it, it's not just something that came with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and with regards to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so panela he received the command to Salah whilst he was in the heavens during the Mirage, every other law of Islam was revealed was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was on Earth, right, except the Sala and we know that people have authority. They send communications out to the ministers to their deputies. But when something is so important, they call them in and they want to have a face to face right? So Allah subhanho wa Taala raises his messenger to the heaven and gives him the Salah
50 in number then reduced to five with the rewards of 50 La ilaha illa Allah as a gift now I know Salah is an obligation no doubt is the second pillar of Islam it is an obligation but it was given as a gift so we cannot only see Salah as an obligation but an obligation and as a gift and we must look after the gifts brothers and sisters in Islam that are given to us and benefit us if I gifted you something and then I came to you A week later or a month later and I saw my gift broken or wasted or somewhere in the yard or you know in the dustbin of course I'm gonna feel offended. I'm gonna feel offended because I learned from how you are with my gift how you value me. Now Allah
subhana wa Jalla is above these human examples but understand brothers and sisters in Islam what we are doing so Pamela that on so many levels, we are disobeying and disrespecting Allah subhanho wa Taala when we lack diligence with the Salah brothers and sisters in Islam, the first thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala will ask us about on the day of the AMA is our Salah, if it's in order, all our good deeds will have the momentum to benefit us our soccer, our hedge our fasting and so on and so forth. If the Salah isn't in order, then the momentum will not be passed on to those other deeds to benefit us. Right. I was gonna ask us about this first. I don't know what I can say to make us
understand how no matter what our circumstance is brothers and sisters in Islam. Make sure you don't miss praying your Salah on time. Make sure brothers and sisters in Islam Now I'm not saying do bad deeds and pray Don't get me wrong. I'm not condoning bad deeds, but I'm saying in your journey leaving the disobedience of Allah make sure you don't let shame upon cause you to leave your Salah making
You feel like there's no hope. Whatever happens, keep praying. If you pass away, praying on time, there's always hope. No matter what you've done, if you've passed away, praying on time, there is always hope because no doubt, Salah is us proving our Eman through action. We walking the talk brothers and sisters in Islam when we pray Our son up because when we say eyeshadow La ilaha illallah wa eyeshadow and Mohammed Abu rasuluh when we say the testimony of faith on our tongue, through this, we are teaching people what we have in our hearts. No one knows what's in our heart. But they know what's in our heart what we see on our tongue. Like how do you prove that what is on
your tongue is true. You have to walk the talk walking the talk is in you praying five times a day on time. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the difficult thing upon the hypocrites is the Salah. Right? It's the Salah, because it's difficult to keep up appearances, and you have to pray five times a day. If you're not truly a believer, it's going to be very difficult to pray five times a day if you're just doing it to keep up appearances because if one Salah finishes, then the next one's gonna come in, then the next one's gonna come in until the end of your life brothers and sisters in Islam. This is the lesson of this moment, whatever your circumstance is, pray, okay. And
this is the month of bringing in the necessary motivation and the necessary change for the rest of the year. We pray more in Ramadan than any other month of the year. For most of us I would imagine that this be the month that we realize no matter what we will never, ever miss spring, our sellout on time. I love you all for the sake of Allah. This is the lesson for this moment. Until next time, Salaam Alaikum alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
