Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters in Islam welcome to episode number 25 moments with the Quran. For today's moment I'm going to take you back a little bit to Surah Surah meanwood and in particular the beginning of Surah 2 million in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says, By the earth let me know when i levena hoon de sala de him hace ruin Pinilla at the beginning of Sora to facilitate Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah makes a statement that indeed, the believers are the ultimately successful ones and then Allah subhanho wa Taala goes to mention the qualities of the true believers that they have who sure in their Salah, and we'll discuss this also

00:00:41--> 00:01:19

from the qualities is that they are diligent with regard to the financial obligations that Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed upon them, they are diligent with the rules and regulations that Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed upon them with regards to their chastity, they are also diligent with regards to their testimony and so on and so forth. And also they are upon their Salah on time and every time but right at the beginning, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that they have who sure in their Salah brothers and sisters in Islam, what will make us understand what who sure is who sure refers to submitting with humility, right? It's not just submitting, but you do it with humility, to

00:01:19--> 00:01:59

handle law with love and exaltation of the of the one the Lord that you are submitting to, especially in your Salah, this is who you are, and from the meanings of horseshoe is stability, right. So, a person is in their Salah with huzhou meaning they in their Salah with stability, the heart is stable, so it means their thoughts are stable. and that in turn means they actions are stable and we understand this meaning of stability from Surah to facilite. In which Allah subhanho wa Taala says women, T and Nikita are all the horsea Allah subhanho wa Taala says from the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala is that you see the earth Harsha are this harsh or mean? means it's stable.

00:02:00--> 00:02:40

And yes, you could say it's submitted with humanity to Allah because Allah commanded it to be stable, so it's stable. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wants to a person praying and he was fidgeting. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if the if this person's heart was stable, if it found peace, then the limbs would find peace as well. So who should our brothers and sisters in Islam and from our Salah, we are rewarded based on the levels of huzhou that we have we take from our Salah, the rewards based on the levels of assure that we have and that is why in the hadith of Abdullah a banana as reported by Mr. Mohammed Rahim Allah, he mentioned that

00:02:40--> 00:02:45

he had a discussion with a married man Yes, even a married man. Yes, he said to him, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:02:46--> 00:03:35

let you sell this sala de la yahooza minha Omar uke tabula minha Illa Shu ha to Sudha Subhana Allah OSHA to sauraha through Manohar, subrosa, sudo, Su ha, Huma Sua, Roja, thulusdhoo ha Subhana Allah, and then this for her. He says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a servant will praise Allah and it won't be written for them from their surah except the 10th of the Salah, or a knife, or an eighth, or seventh, or a sixth, or a fifth or fourth or a third or half, depending on the level of huzhou that they have, depending on the level of presence of heart that they had when they prayed depending on the level of submission with humility that was witnessed from them when

00:03:35--> 00:04:09

they observed that prayer. So no doubt we have an important question to ask how do we develop posture especially with our Salah, and the scholars of Islam have highlighted through the reading of the Quran that hoelscher is developed number one, the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala with an attentive Heart Of course, you remember Allah understanding? What you saying when you praise Allah subhanho wa Taala when you see Subhana Allah when you see hamdulillah when you say la ilaha illAllah when you say Allahu Akbar What are you saying? Right? And the evidence for this is in Surah, two, amongst other ayah in the Quran, in Surah towheaded Allah subhanho wa Taala says, lm Mia nini,

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

levena mono,

00:04:13--> 00:04:18

ARPU boom Li karela. Woman as alameen

00:04:19--> 00:04:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala says that has a time not come for the people of Eman to experience huzhou to submit with humility. Why because of the remembrance of Allah and also because of the score and that has been revealed in truth lyrically level minus elemental how to handle so the liquor of Allah helps develop our humanity because we understand a lot more and we train ourselves to understand a lot more than we entered the Salah with who sure so we really understand who we are worshipping. And also the Quran Subhana Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says woman has eliminated also the score and when you ponder over the Quran and the meanings of the Quran and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in

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

the Quran in surah two

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

sobre una lil Afghani yeppoon

00:05:05--> 00:05:11

Subhana Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that you see these people who are diligent with the Quran, they fall on the faces

00:05:13--> 00:05:52

with tears in frustration of course with tears supanova the heart feels it so the eyes react what the heart feels. And then Allah says we as you do, who are the who shoe is increased because of the score and that they attach to and they read Subhanallah so this is another way to gain pleasure through liquor and through pondering over the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala in light of surah Menon and this brothers and sisters in Islam, we understand that between horseshoe and Salah is a tight rope, they are interconnected, you need to assure for your Salah and you can develop kosher without your Salah. So we say also to develop kosher you need your Salah and Subhana Allah we took

00:05:52--> 00:05:56

an ayah earlier in our series, I'm suited to batara in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says he

00:05:57--> 00:06:35

was studying to be sober he was Salah in the early moments. In our earlier episodes we discussed this was stirring up somebody will say Allah subhanho wa Taala ecosystem through patience and Salah, or through fasting and Salah as some of the scholars have said have said patience here means fasting. And some have said that we should we should seek assistance through our Salah by by being patient. Some of some of the scholars have said have said this, that you need a great dose of patience to be able to pray diligently and Allah says we're in the Holika Puritan Illa Allah Allah Subhana Allah says that the Salah, this matter is mighty, except for the people of of who sure

00:06:35--> 00:07:13

Subhanallah except for the people who are able to submit with humility with ease. So we see how connected the Salah is to the concept of who's your brothers and sisters in Islam. What is the ruling of the football have discussed this? Is it compulsory or is it extremely recommended? Or is it a condition? We see different views between the scholars the majority of the scholars say that it is a noble station and highly recommended in our Salah. But it's not a condition. Although some scholars of Islam I mean demand whenever we says there's an agenda he says there's a consensus of the scholars that it's highly recommended but this is questionable because we do have from our

00:07:13--> 00:07:35

Islamic scholarship those who have said otherwise we have remembered it from the shareholders who said who should have been obligatory in Salah we have been hammered from the humble is anybody tell me also from the family from the families who have the view that having Hosier is wired up. In fact, the mama Rosie Rahim Allah He was of the view that horseshoe is a condition for Salah. So without it

00:07:36--> 00:08:11

the Salah is didn't even take place in the first place Subhana Allah. However, the majority of the scholars say that it is highly recommended and an extremely noble station but not compulsory. Why they say if it's compulsory, this will be too difficult for them. Which one of us can observe our sada without our mind lapsing our heart lapsing in some way or form? And also if it was compulsively the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would have made it clear to us in an ambiguous ways we would have known it beyond doubt that there wouldn't be any discussion regarding its ruling everyone would have understood in a way that's as clear as the sun that it is obligatory, especially given how

00:08:11--> 00:08:49

important Salah is if this hasn't been done, then it means that it's highly recommended and not obligatory. And we also know I mean, from the best of us armory, Bill hapa broke the law. And he used to say, as even a bishop I mentioned in his muslin enough in his in his compilation of as our generations that go back to the companions. And remember Buhari also mentions this in his site as a hanging duration as a hanging duration means it's not. He doesn't mention it, as you mentioned, everything else that he mentions fully in the site. He mentions it as a hanging narration, which means it doesn't have the level of authenticity that based on the conditions that he said for his

00:08:50--> 00:09:18

other narration. So he mentions this which shows that it is authentic that Omar says in Nila, which is one of the slider I'm going to use to say that I am I sought out the affairs of the army once and praying. Now obviously Omar is not saying this to to to to highlight that he hasn't played Salah in the way that in the best way that it should be prayed but Subhanallah he was expressing to his companions how much worry he had because of the Muslim army, going out of the battles about to begin and how this used to weigh heavily on him so panela that it used to

00:09:19--> 00:09:54

overwhelm him and take control over him. Now he's not saying it that he used to do it in a way that it used to overtake the the Marxian objective of Salah even though in other narrations, we find that at times this would happen is that the pray and not be able to read so the prayer would have to be repeated. This is not saying that this shouldn't be used as support for those who are thinking of other things in their Salah. I mean sometimes people say so Pamela, we know how many units of prayer the Imam is reading because we have certain parts of our business that we we ordered in our styling Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us and inshallah This is not true, but just the like message that

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

people share. So we shouldn't use another statement to justify anything because I wasn't saying it as a justification. He was saying it as a

00:10:00--> 00:10:31

Worry and before, we have Abubakar and before Abubakar we have the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who carried the affairs of the Ummah in a in a way far, far greater than Omar himself and they used to concentrate in their Salah or they had high levels of concentration in their Salah. So this is a discussion about whoa Sure, may Allah subhanahu Allah grant us for sure, especially in our solar and make us people for sure and make us people have solar. I mean your enemy. This is the lesson for today's moment. I love you for the sake of Allah until another moment. Salaam wa alikum warahmatu America
