00:00:39--> 00:01:12

All praise belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala we praise Him and seek his assistance and seek His forgiveness. And we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evil of our souls and the adverse consequences of our deeds. wampserver Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon the non kin misguide. And those who allow misguides dinan can guide and piece and salutations be upon the final messenger humble sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah subhanho wa Taala gathers with him agenda. I mean, I bear witness that there's no one with your worship besides one Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is His Messenger.

00:01:13--> 00:01:16

From the outset, my dear brothers and sisters, I want to extend

00:01:17--> 00:01:23

a sincere apology from myself regarding the change in schedule just for

00:01:25--> 00:01:31

obviously, this weekend, the next week. So we have a lesson today, Tuesday, the next lesson will be on Tuesday. I know as a result,

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

we've lost many live attendees because

00:01:36--> 00:01:43

you know it, the time change has has sort of made things much later. For those in some parts of the world.

00:01:45--> 00:01:58

I sent out a message to you all explaining why. And I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala opens your heart to accepting this apology, I do respect your time.

00:01:59--> 00:02:06

And I do respect the schedule. This is really, really something beyond my control, not to say that I have chosen something.

00:02:08--> 00:02:13

considering our time together less important. Absolutely not. I really wanted to make this point clear because it's

00:02:14--> 00:02:37

you all very close to my heart and the program is close to my heart. And we've always said we must respect time we respect each other's time, I know you have a lot going on in your life as well. So please don't take it as something just came up and I chose to drop that class. No, it's something really important and I shared my reasoning in detail in the email that you got. So

00:02:38--> 00:02:56

that's the the start of today's session, a sincere apology for myself. In terms of lesson 11 at the End of lesson 10 we began discussing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his guidance with regards to salah and in terms of my notes,

00:02:57--> 00:03:06

that particular portion started on page 23 and he shall read for us when he left his hand.

00:03:08--> 00:03:18

And at the beginning of today's session, I want him to continue inshallah, from where we left off. And to continue reading until page

00:03:19--> 00:03:30

spinning spinnler. Let me get to it very quickly until page 51. So shall we just take note of that a nice clear, quick styled, reading till page 51.

00:03:31--> 00:03:48

A lot of what we'll be taking over today and what we've taken in the last session and even in the upcoming sessions are related to Sala but let's just get through the discussion related to the compulsory prayers, and then inshallah we will shed some light

00:03:50--> 00:04:02

on that taken in a way conducive to the objectives of the class that we have set and in a way conducive to the scope of this particular gathering. So if I could just pass it on to a few Hisham

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

barkcloth he

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

was further tossed around.

00:04:14--> 00:04:30

He was supposed to be a Jemaine May Allah shower his blessings in his mercy upon the writer of this book, on the teacher, for the reader and upon all those who are listening and learning. I mean, I mean, we are starting on page 29 of settlement provisions for the hereafter.

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

Chapter. As for the votive prayer, sometimes he used to prolong the recitation in it so much that abou sided or the Allahu anhu said, the vocal prayer would begin and the person could go to a buffet and take care of his affairs and return to his family, make ablution return and still find the profits that allow it was seldom in the first rocker due to the length of his recital narrated by Muslim sometimes he would recite something of the length of surah sajida and sometimes sudo to Allah so to live

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

So what we'll do, Raj, as for the answer prayer, his dissertation, there would be half that of the lower prayer recitation if that recitation was long and the same as it if it was short. As for the model prayer, his guidance there in contradicts the practice of the people today, for he prayed it once reciting their insula to have divided between the two rockers and once he recited to tour and Serato Sarah, as for the continual practice of reciting short sutras from Alamo porcelain, it was a practice introduced by Marwan Abner hakam. and due to this they didn't Sabbath or their love and reproved him. If not, they'll both have said it has been narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:05:38--> 00:05:59

wa sallam recited in the mother of prayer surah two are off divided between the two la casa de Haan and Serato Allah. So two teen with the the more the more or with a 10 answer to that, and this is well known and also that he used to recite the search the short solos from Admiral Foster, and all of these reports are authentic and well known.

00:06:00--> 00:06:40

As for the last shot, the mother of prayer being known as the first shot. He used to recite their incident the teen and he taught me how to be a loved one who to recite sweatshops. So it will either answer to Lael and other suitors. That is why he rebuked him for reciting Surah Baqarah in Russia and he said to him, Are you one of those who have put who put the people to trial Omar's Packers have concentrated on this word and they paid no attention to what came before it or what came after it. I eat the context. As for the Friday prayer Easter essential to Juma and Salatu munaf yakun or Serato Allah Angela to Harsha as for restricting oneself to the final verses of the two sutras he

00:06:40--> 00:07:20

never did that. As for the read prayers, he is to recite their incident of and sorrow to karma completely. Or sometimes he would recite sudo to Allah and sudo to the Harsha and he remained upon this guidance until he met Allah the Almighty the all powerful. Due to this, the candidates acted upon it and avacado their lover and who recited slotted Baccarat in the fudger prayer until he made the tasleem just before the sun rose and remodeled the lowland who after him recited it in recited in it surah Yusuf and sola to nail and he also recited surah houde and Salatu Bani Israel and the like. As for the saying of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If any of you is leading the

00:07:20--> 00:07:57

people in prayer, he should make it light, it must be referred to the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not to the desires of those being led in prayer and his guidance and that is his habitual practice is the judge in all matters in which there is a disagreement. He did not designate any particular surah, which was to be read to the exclusion of all others, except in the Friday prayer and read prayers. It was part of his guidance on love while he was telling them to recite a sutra and he might recite it in both rockers. But as for the recitation of the end of the sutras, or the middle of them, that has not been recorded from him as far as I can to surahs in one

00:07:57--> 00:07:57

Raka.

00:07:59--> 00:08:35

He used to do that in the super rock supererogatory prayers. And as for the recitation of one surah, in both rock as that is the least that he would do. And he would make the first rock are longer than the second record in all of his prayers, and it is possible that he may prolong it, so that he would not hear the sound of footsteps, thus enabling late comers to catch the prayers. Once he had completed his recitation, he would raise his hands and say Allahu Akbar as he bowed, and he would place the palms of his hands on his knees, as if he were grasping them and he would stretch out his arms and hold them away from his sides and he spread his back and kept it level and he would be at

00:08:35--> 00:09:04

ease in his position in this position and you would need to raise his head no let it drop, but kept it level with his back was in record he would say so panula be loving Glorified be my lord the most great and sometimes he would say with it or instead of it subhanak Allahu Allah banal be handicar la homophily. Knowing between to you or alarm on our Lord, and praises are for you forgive me, as a rule, his record would last for as long as it takes to say this be

00:09:06--> 00:09:43

as a rule as required would last for as long as it takes to say this be 10 times as long as his sujood but sometimes he would make the length of his bowing and frustration the same as that of his standing. But he only used to do that sometimes during the night prayer. So his guidance in most cases was to make his prayer balanced and even. He also used to send requests so boy producible mother equity row, most glorified Most Holy Lord of the angels in the spirit, ie jabril at a salon and sometimes you would say along my locker like that are meant worker slumped, or shalaka, summery or bizarre, even balmy, wasabi.

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

Which means a lot to you, I have bowed and in you I have believed and to you, I have submitted my hearing my sight, my brain, my bones, and my nerves are humbled before you. But this has only been reported from him in the night prayer. Then he would raise his head saying send me

00:10:00--> 00:10:22

lonely man hamidah Verily Allah listens to one who praises him and he would raise his hands and he would always treat in his back when he stood up from bowing and between the two such desert and he would say prayer in which a man does not straighten his back and record and so Jude is not accepted narrated by him no Jose Jose man, his sorry. Once he had straightened up from Boeing, he would say have been our local hand

00:10:23--> 00:10:37

our Lord and to you all praise and thanks are you and sometimes he might say a long model banner like a hand or Allah our Lord to you all praise and thanks to you, but as for compiler combining Allahumma and bilateral while this is not correct,

00:10:38--> 00:11:22

it was part of his guidance sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he would prolong this pillar of the prayer to a length of time equivalent to that of the record. And it has been authentically reported from him that he would say in it alone might have been a like 100 mil smls. Woman, woman a man or woman am she I mean she in that lesson you image a Hakuna Cora loved aku Luna lacquered lemony Idina our plate when I'm really mama not what I infer with energy demon kilted Allah our Lord to you do or do all praise and thanks, filling the heavens filling the earth and whatever in between them, and filling whatever else you wish, Lord of the glory and majesty, this is the most truthful thing that

00:11:22--> 00:12:07

any slave may say. And we are all slaves to you. None can withhold what you have and not what you give and none can give what you withhold, nor can the possessions of an owner benefit him before you and it has been authentically reported from him that he is to say they're in a low moq ceiling and if you're eligible valid or not preliminary, we will hop I cannot you know possible to dominate Dennis by benei webinar hop I cannot that dynamic shifty will normally will Allah cleanse me of sins as a white garment is cleansed of dirt, or law purify me from my sins by ice water and hail, or law purify me from misdeeds and sins as a white garment is purified from dirt and make the distance

00:12:07--> 00:12:23

between me and my sins as great as you have made the distance between the East and the West. And it has been authentically reported from him salallahu alayhi wasallam that he used to repeat there in Europe be Al Hamdulillah beforehand, all praise and thanks to my Lord or praise and thanks to my Lord

00:12:24--> 00:12:59

so that it was the same length as his rocker. Muslim has reported on the authority of ns ob Allahu anhu. When the prophets when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, Send me our lovely man hamidah he would remain standing until we would say he has forgotten. Then he would prostrate and sit between the prostrations between the two prostrations until we would say he has forgotten. So this was the well known guidance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. As for the shortening of these two pillars, it was done that by the leaders from among Bengal omiya until the people thought that it is a part of the sooner

00:13:02--> 00:13:37

chapter, then he would make the tech beat and prostrate without raising his hands. And he used to place his knees on the ground and then his hands after them, then his forehead and his nose. This is what is correct for the part of him which was placed on the ground first was the part of him which was nearest to it. Then the next nearest, the first part of him to be lifted from the ground was the highest part of him, and then the next highest. So when he rose, he would lift his head first and his hands, then his knees and this is the opposite of the action of the camel and he prohibited imitating animals in prayer. He prohibited lowering oneself to the ground in the same way that a

00:13:37--> 00:14:02

camel does. Glancing around the way a Fox does, spreading the arms the way a beast of prey does, in the manner of a dog a car in the manner of a dog, pecking the ground as a crow as a crow does, and raising the hands like the tails of wild horses when making the teslin. He used to prostrate upon his forehead, and his nose below the winding of his turban, and it has not been reported from him that he used to prostrate on it.

00:14:04--> 00:14:41

He used to prostrate on the earth much and underwater and mud and on a hombre made from date palm leaves, and only has he made from them and on a 10 foot wall. When you're frustrated, he would place his forehead and his nose firmly on the ground and spread his palms on either side of him and he would keep his arms away from his sides until the white of his armpits could be seen. He used to place his hands at the level of his shoulders and his ears and he would be at ease and his frustration and he would face the tips of his toes towards the tumbler and he would place his hands and his fingers flat on the ground without spreading them nor clenching them. While prostrating he

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

would say Subhana Allah Glorified be my lord the most Thai and he would also say so pina colada model banner will be hamitic alone knock Philly or LA our Lord glory and praise be to Allah forgive me and he would say so. borhan prodution Rubble, mela eco Roy most glorified most

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

Holy Lord of the angels in the spirit, and he used to say, a lone molucca subject to a big man to a like a slumped sajida God led the holla who was a wah wah wah hoo Abbas la la de barakallahu Eisen holophane will lie for you I have frustrated in you I have believed Do you I have submitted my face has frustrated for the one who created it and shaped it then brought forth its hearing and sight bless it be Allah the best of creators and he would say Aloma fiddly then be called level deca who would you love who well who Hera Allah Nieto who was era or law Forgive me all my sins, the minor and the major the first and the last, the apparent and the hidden. And he used to say,

00:15:46--> 00:16:32

Allah homophily Hatha Yoga Jerry, why Salafi Emery? Well, my auntie Ireland will be mini Aloma fiddly did do has Li wahaca yo Andy aku daddy candy wakulla daddy Karin de Alomar Filipina, condemned to a halt as long island, Wilma, Wilma, Ireland to anttila illa Illa Allah and Allah forgive me my mistakes and my ignorance and my extravagance, for you know them better than I or Allah forgive me my serious mistakes and those made in jest, and my my unintentional and my intentional mistakes, and all those and all of these are in the Oh ALLAH forgive me my sins in the past and in the in the future, and those which I concealed and those which are committed openly, you

00:16:32--> 00:16:43

are my ILA and has the right to be worshipped except you. And he ordered the companions of your low on whom to strike much in supplication, on prostrating saying, verily, it is most worthy to be answered for you.

00:16:45--> 00:17:24

Chapter, then he would raise his head saying Allahu Akbar, without raising his hands. And he would sit with dentition, laying the left foot along the ground and sitting on it with his right foot upright, and placing his hands on his thighs, and placing his right elbow on his thigh, and the edge of his right hand on his knee, and he would make a fist with his fingers, and make a circle with his thumb and forefinger, and he would raise his forefinger and supplicate with it, moving it up and down and saying Allahu mcfeely or haniwa Dini or zucchini, or law, forgive me Have mercy on me, guide me and sustain me. This is how this was how it was described by even a burst of your love and

00:17:24--> 00:17:55

who from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where they felt at their level and reported from him that he used to save a bit fiddly, my Lord forgive me, then he would stand up on the tips of his toes, supporting himself on his thighs. Once he was upright, he would begin reciting, and he would not observe a silence as he did when opening the prayer, then you would pray the second Raka as you did the first except in four things. Firstly, the short period of silence, secondly, the opening of the prayer. Thirdly, the opening tequila, And fourthly the prolonging of it.

00:17:56--> 00:18:09

Then when he says for the share hood, you would place his left hand on his left thigh and his right hand on his right thigh, and he would point with his right index finger and he would not raise a tie, nor would he hold it down.

00:18:10--> 00:18:49

But he would bend it slightly and move it, clenching the little finger and the ring finger and making a circle with the middle finger and the thumb, and raising the forefinger and supplicating with it, and he would fix his gaze upon it, and he would spread out the left palm on his left thigh and he would rest on it. As for the description of his sitting, it was the same as that between the prostrations as mentioned previously, as for the Hadith of the bear narrated by Muslim, when he sat in prayer, he would place his left foot between his thigh and his shin, laying his right foot flat. This was in the final Tasha hood, Abu Zubaydah said that he used to lay the right foot flat, while

00:18:49--> 00:19:31

Abu Hamid said that he raised it, but this and Allah knows better is not a difference of opinion, because he used to sit on it. Indeed he used to push it out from his right side, so that it was between being raised and being flat. Or it was said he used to do this and this he used to raise it and perhaps sometimes he laid it flat and that is more relaxing for the feet. He would always make the shareholder is sitting in the sitting and he taught his companions or their loved one him to say, a day or two later, he was slower to play You bet. salaam aleikum rahmatullah wa barakato. Salaam Marlena vida de la sala when a shadow Illa Illa la hora shadow under Muhammad Abdul Rasul

00:19:31--> 00:19:48

Allah all the compliments prayers and good tidings good things are due to Allah, peace be upon you or prophet and Allah's mercy and blessings, peace be upon us and upon the righteous slaves of Allah. I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger

00:19:50--> 00:20:00

and he used to make it very light, as if he was praying on a hot stone. It has not been transmitted from him in any Hadith ever, that he used to send prayers on himself and on his family.

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

In it, nor did he seek refuge in it from the punishment of the grave nor nor the punishment of the Fire nor the trial of life and death nor the trial of unless he heard the journal. And if anyone recommended it, it was only due to his understanding of general evidences, which clearly clearly refer to the final Tisha hood. Then he would stand up seeing a low bar on the tips of his tools and on his knees, supporting himself with his hands on his thighs. In Sahih Muslim and in some routes reported by Buhari, it is mentioned that he used to raise his hands at this point, then you would recite slotted Fatiha alone, and it has not been confirmed that used to recite anything else in the

00:20:36--> 00:20:37

final tool archives.

00:20:39--> 00:21:16

It was not a part of his guidance to look hither and thither during the prayer in Sahih Bukhari It is reported that he was asked about it and he said, it is stealing. Satan steals from the prayer obviously, of the slave. Sometimes he would do it in the prayer due to some abnormal circumstance which was not a customary action for him, such as when you look towards the mountain pass where he he who sent the recliner to and Allen was better. After that the shower hood and before the test lean, he would supplicate and he ordered his companions or the Allahu anhu. To do likewise, in the hadith of aura and the hadith of Allah the laquan.

00:21:18--> 00:21:53

As for the publication of the tasleem, after the test, Liam was facing the Qibla, or those who are being led in prayer that has no basis in his guidance of Allahu alayhi wa sallam. In general, he only performed this applications connected with prayer during the prayer, and he ordered his companions hobo novel on whom to do likewise. And that is what befits the situation of the worshiper because he's approaching his Lord and once he makes the test lean that is lost. Then you would make the test link to his right singer salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah. Then he will do likewise to his left. This was his customary practice, but it has been narrated from him that he is to make one to

00:21:53--> 00:21:56

swim in front of his face, but this has this has not been confirmed.

00:21:57--> 00:22:34

The best Hadeeth which exists in this matter, is that a violation of the law of wonder, which is in the sunon, but it is with regard to sending in prayer at night and it has some weakness in it, because it does not clearly state that he made only one test limb. He used to supplicate during his prayer sing along in the road to becoming available of public or becoming fitna till mercy hit the gel or to become infinitely malleable mammoth along in the era with the became in minima suddenly will not hold on. While I seek refuge with you from the punishment of the grave. And I seek refuge with you from the trial of and messy heard the jail and I seek refuge with you from the trial of

00:22:34--> 00:23:18

life and death or law I seek refuge refuge with you from sin and debt. He also used to say in his prayers alone more fiddly than be worse here leafy daddy we're basically female as opportunity or life Forgive me my sins and widen for me my abode and bless me in that which that by which you sustain me and he used to say Aloma Iniesta look at the birth as well as the Mata Allah rushed was Lucretia karate. shukran, aromatic or mercenary by eidetic was Luca Ben selima was Luca de sentence logica was a lucam in hydromat, alum or who will be coming sheremeta Lama was futile Kadima, the metabolome, or LA I asked that you make me firm in the affair of my religion, and that you make me

00:23:18--> 00:23:37

constant in integrity. And I asked you that you make me thankful for your blessings, and make me to worship you in the best way. And I asked you for a sound heart and I asked you for a truthful tongue. And I asked you to give me from what you know to be good. And I seek refuge with you from what you know to be evil. And I seek forgiveness what you know.

00:23:39--> 00:24:13

And all of the supplications in prayer which have been preserved are in the form of the first person singular. When you stood in prayer, you would lower his head according to a man a hermit and when making the Tasha hood, he would not extend his gaze beyond his pointing finger. A love made him find joy and peace in prayer. And he's to say, oh Valera, clad in us with the prayer, but this did not prevent him from observing those whom he led in prayer. In spite of the complete presence of his heart in the prayer. He's to enter the prayer wishing to prolong it, but would hear the cry for child and shorten it fearful that he would burden his mother. Similarly, he would often obligatory

00:24:13--> 00:24:49

prayer holding oma, his of your low honor his granddaughter on his shoulder. When he stood up, he would carry her and when he bowed or frustrated, he would put her down and he would pray an Al Hassan and Hussein or their lover and whomever would come and climb his back. So he would prolong his frustration, disliking to throw them off his back, and he would pray in our HR will be lower and higher would come and you would open the door for her then returned to his place and prayer of prayer. And he used to return salutations of peace by indicating with his hand. As for the Hadith, which says states, wherever indicated with his hand during his prayer must repeat it. It is

00:24:49--> 00:24:49

baseless.

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

He used to blow during his prayer according to him alignment, and he would cry during it and he would clear his throat when necessary. Sometimes he would pray barefoot and other times where

00:25:00--> 00:25:34

Shoes, and he ordered his companions of your level and home to pray in their shoes in order to be different from the Jews. Sometimes he would pray wearing a single garment and sometimes two garments. And this was more common. He performed Kanoute in the federal prayers after the record for a month, then he stopped it. And his keynote was due to some temporary circumstances and once they had been lifted, he would stop it. His guidance was to perform canoes due to some particular calamities, and not to do so when there were none and he did not perform it only during the fudger prayer. Indeed, most of his canoes was performed during it, due to its being prescribed to make it

00:25:34--> 00:25:41

long and due to it being close to early dawn the Sahara, and the time when supplication is answered, and the time of our last descent.

00:25:45--> 00:25:54

Chapter it has been confirmed from sallallahu alayhi wasallam that he said, I'm only a human being like you. I forget as you do so if I forget remind me,

00:25:56--> 00:26:31

and his forgetfulness was a completion of our last favor upon his community, and the perfection of their religion in order that they may emulate him, for he stood up after praying to lock eyes of a four Raka prayer. And when he had completed his prayer, he frustrated before making the test slim, from which it was inferred that whoever leaves a portion of the prayer which is not a pillar, a broken, should prostrate for it before making the test lean. It has also been taken from some sources that if he that if you forgot that and had begun a pillar, he had not returned to it. And he made the test limb after praying to law cause of one of the afternoon prayers, then he spoke, then

00:26:31--> 00:27:07

he completed it. Then he made the tasleem after which he prostrated then made the test limb again. And he prayed and made the tasleem and left while one rock I remained of the prayer, and Paul held of the Allahu anhu said to him, You have forgotten Erica. So we entered the mosque and ordered burl for the level and who to call the call center. And the people prayed one Raka routed by Ahmed, and he prayed five rock highs in the lower prayer and they said you have prayed five, so you're frustrated after making the teslin and you pray three rockers in the answer prayer, then entered his house and the people reminded him so he went out and prayed one record with him with them. Then he

00:27:07--> 00:27:23

made the tasleem then he frustrated then he made the testing again. This is the total of what has been reported from him in this matter, and there are five situations. It was not a part of his guidance to close his eyes in prayer and this was disliked by Ahmed and others. For this said it is one of the actions of the Jews.

00:27:25--> 00:28:01

A number of scholars permitted but the correct view is that keeping them open is better if it does not detract from the required humility of prayer. But if it prevents one from achieving humility, due to the presence of ornaments and other things which distract the worshiper then it is not disliked. After making the test slim he would seek forgiveness three times saying stuff federal law then he would say a lot of my interests allama women because Sudan What about October January column or law you are at peace and from euchems peace most blessings are you owner of Majesty and Honor. And you will not remain facing the karma for longer than it took to say this, but would hasten to

turn towards the worshipers and you will turn to his right and to his left. Then he would face towards the worshipers in front of him and you would not single out any particular direction in preference to the others. When you offered the federal prayer, he would remain in the place in which he had prayed until the sun had completely risen. And at the end of his obligatory prayers he would say in law why the hula sharika Roman cola cola Chateau de Leon has the right to be worshipped except Allah alone without partners his the dominion and to him or do you all praise and thanks and he's able to do all things alone Malema Nia Adina Alfredo Mora theory mama not wallow in front of

And there is no power and no strength saving Allah. None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, and we worship none save him. Our blessings and bounty belong to Him, and all the beautiful praises are due to him.

00:29:20--> 00:29:59

None has the right to be worshipped except Allah with sincerity towards him in religion, even though the polytheists may detest it, and he encouraged his people to say at the end of the obligatory prayers, so panela 33 times hamdulillah 33 times Allahu Akbar bottle 33 times and to complete the 100 by saying La ilaha illAllah YW la sharika Makoto, Allah kulesza included.

And if you died during that day alone ordained for you protection from the fire. And if you offer the mother of prayer before speaking say alone, I didn't even know or law protecting you from the fire seven times. And if you died during that day Allah will ordained from you for you protection from the fire.

00:30:27--> 00:30:34

If he prayed towards a wall, he would leave the distance sufficient for a sheep to pass between him and the wall, and he will not stand Far from it.

00:30:36--> 00:30:49

Indeed, he ordered his companions while they're low on home. To move close to the sutra. If he prayed towards a stick a pillar or a tree, he would place it side slightly to his right side or his left side, and he would not stand directly in front of it. He would plant

00:30:52--> 00:31:28

he would plant his spear in the ground, one traveling or in the desert and pray towards it. And that would be his sutra and you'd place his riding camel and pray towards it and he would make and he would take the saddle, place it straight and pray towards the end of it. He ordered the worshiper to pray towards a sutra even it'd be an arrow or a stick and if he did not find one should draw a line on the ground if there was no sutra, it has been authentically reported from him that he said a woman a donkey and a black dog passing in front of the worship records of the prayer. Anything which contradicts This is either authentic but unclear or clear but inauthentic. He used to pray when it

00:31:28--> 00:31:41

shall be Allahu Allah was sleeping in his Scribbler, but this is not the same as a person passing in front of him, for it is unlawful for a man to pass in front of a worshipper, but it is not disliked for him to remain in front of a worshiper in prayer.

00:31:50--> 00:31:54

Okay, barter Co Op comm which is a colloquial term for that

00:31:56--> 00:31:59

00:32:00--> 00:32:06

your voice lasted and we could hear you sipping away hamdulillah it was making us feel thirsty as well

00:32:08--> 00:32:17

by brothers and sisters so we've actually reached page 5149 and we've covered the matters related to

00:32:21--> 00:32:31

worship as a whole mini Sunnah as a whole right? Salah as a whole and in particular the compulsory matters pertaining to Salah. Now as we said, this is not a fifth course.

00:32:32--> 00:32:36

And, you know, this is a course to enlighten you but nonetheless,

00:32:37--> 00:32:43

you know, stick to that which you have been taught stick to that which you have been taught by your reputable scholars

00:32:45--> 00:33:08

that look after the fifth key matters, your key matters your matters of worship, based on the method that you follow, but nonetheless become enlightened by this. Now just a few points on page 33 the reading of the do is allow Marbella nickel hammer mill smls mill mill Bina Houma mill a magic temin shake in bed

so in case there was a cut off in transmission along those best

00:33:34--> 00:33:43

I'm repeating that for your benefit. I'm just getting some messages here saying that it's not very clear Bismillah

00:33:44--> 00:33:45

let's see what's happened.

00:33:48--> 00:33:50

I have my microphone settings as they were

00:33:53--> 00:34:04

it's on number one, I can't lower it anymore. Perhaps everyone can if I lower it any more you'll hear me so can I ask you to reduce the volume on you and please

00:34:05--> 00:34:09

Mashallah, I mean it's pretty amazing, this online classroom but even on level one.

00:34:10--> 00:34:13

It sounds pretty clear and unless somebody else's microphone is on.

00:34:15--> 00:34:59

There's nothing else I can do inshallah. Okay, so we've heard a lot we have just some quick lessons brothers and sisters from our reading together. Firstly is we let how detailed how detailed the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is and how detailed the documentation of his life is about law you won't find it as a man. I don't think you will find anyone from the beginning of time till the end of time who has his life or her life, documented as well as the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life is documented, right? We know we know everything. SubhanAllah everything. You know if it's matches to do with him behind

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

Closed Doors we know it because his wives taught us

00:35:04--> 00:35:12

when he traveled here to have a traveling with him, and they narrated every small matter and every big matter that happened during that travel

00:35:13--> 00:35:20

when he was you know, moving around in Medina, so many you know, there's countless narrations when

00:35:21--> 00:35:30

you read the narration, you see he's either with Abu Bakar or Abu Bakr and Omar or Abu Bakr and Omar and his man, married, right. So

00:35:31--> 00:35:36

whatever happened even in those movements within Medina, or was in Mecca.

00:35:38--> 00:36:10

We have details about it if we talk about the hegira, even though it was such a secretive affair, Allah subhanho wa Taala chose a Siddiq Abubakar Viola and to be his companion, and we have critical details, right, pertaining to some of the most intricate parts of that hedger. Right, that make us you know, that really allows us to even imagine it in our minds when we read it. You know, today's Panama, some museums have actual sculptures and displays,

00:36:11--> 00:36:19

explaining the Asia, right. And the reason why this can be done is because there's enough detail, there's enough detail that, you know,

00:36:20--> 00:36:40

allows for these processes to take place. So the life of Rasulullah sallallahu, Alayhi. wasallam, is extremely documented. And this is one of the first things we need to learn from the reading that we've heard, right? I mean, we've heard every small, you know, matters which you would not even perhaps you know, we would not even consider a matter.

00:36:42--> 00:37:19

We find the habit of the Allahu Allah, Nigerian, they considered it a matter. For example, He used to clear his throat in Salah, for example, he says sujood was wrong one day. And, you know, they found out that it's because his grandchildren were on top of him. So they even picked up that today the suit is wrong. Right? We're not talking about big matters. Like, for example, the four units of prayer became three, because he forgot a unit of prayer. And then after that, he did the Sudoku, he completed it and did the sujood, and so on and so forth. Those are methods that you know, we'd pick up on, but we're talking about matters that perhaps you and I would not have any acute focus

00:37:20--> 00:37:22

on, you know, we'd say

00:37:23--> 00:37:47

he cleared his throat is this, you know, we didn't even cross our minds as a highlight. Well, in the minds of the saboteur of the Allahu anhu regimen, it passed the mind as a highlight. So this is how Allah subhanho wa Taala protected the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam by inspiring the best people to have an acute focus on everything, he did something Allahu alayhi wa sallam, right?

00:37:49--> 00:38:11

And this is a lesson This is a lesson no doubt from all the different mentions that we have seen. Sometimes he prayed a lot this way. Sometimes he did this. Sometimes he decided this sometimes he decided that he never encouraged the recitation of of the longest students, for example, in Latin America, he would read this surah or that surah and through sutras which are similar, right?

00:38:12--> 00:38:15

Very, very detailed with him and

00:38:16--> 00:38:56

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he teaches us to pray as we've seen him pray. Right, pray as you see me pray. Right. And we have enough detail to actually vision. That particular prayer the prayer of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us with him agenda. Me. The other thing, my dear brothers and sisters is that at that time, phip was not as fit is no now. Okay, so at that time, it wasn't a case where, you know, Santa was being taught and it was being centered these are the are kind of the pillars of the Sunnah. And these are the YG back in the conditions, and these are the must have back in the recommended acts. Right, and these are the

00:38:56--> 00:39:00

disliked acts, and these are the forbidden acts, right? Rather,

00:39:01--> 00:39:02

the

00:39:03--> 00:39:26

marine they understood these acts from this acute monitoring of the actions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And then he's teaching some of Allahu alayhi wa sallam meaning his verbal teachings, which means that the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu magic as Marian they learned from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam through observation, as well as through

00:39:27--> 00:39:34

the things that he said, and the things that he said might have happened because of questions that they asked or might have happened

00:39:35--> 00:39:54

from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam himself without any questions being asked or without there being a circumstance that necessitated and mandated that he he says, that he would say something in that particular circumstance, right. So we learn from this how we should better our

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

abilities to acquire knowledge and that that knowledge

00:40:00--> 00:40:28

acquisition should come about through observation, as well as through listening, and seeing, and so on and so forth. And the you know, the famous statement goes, and we've said this before in the session in the session, I, if I recall correctly, that the speed of light is faster than the speed of sound. So people are going to see you before they hear you. Right. And also, when people see you, there's far more senses being used, right?

00:40:29--> 00:40:31

Because they see you and they can hear you.

00:40:33--> 00:40:37

And then, you know, the brain captures that processes it, and so on and so forth.

00:40:38--> 00:41:19

It's far more effective than just being given a verbal presentation. Right? And that's why today, even when we teach our children and teach in the data and and and run, you know, our, our conferences, or our workshops, and so on, and so forth, we should take into consideration this point that how can we make the session more interactive, and especially interactive through the process of engaging more more senses of the students and those that are going to receive the knowledge that we're trying to share? This is important. Now, one of the issues with virtual learning is this I mean, our lessons right now happening in a virtual classroom. And today, we live in an age that is

00:41:19--> 00:41:22

big on distance learning of virtual learning, right.

00:41:23--> 00:41:49

So most of it is done via virtual classrooms, we sit in the classroom together, or we watch a video, we read a book, and we processing things ourselves. And then we move forward to take on exams, and complete diplomas or degrees, and so on and so forth. But one of the issues definitely comes about with regards to this particular point, the whole process of seeing, although it can be mitigated today, because I have the lower video, and so on and so forth. So, you know, it's, it's, it's not this or that. But it's definitely

00:41:51--> 00:42:25

the pros and cons definitely exist upon both ends of the spectrum, whether we say on site learning, or online learning. But the point is, my dear brothers and sisters, if we make our learning online, then we should bolster that particular process by filling it with as many visuals as we can. lucrative visuals of course, conducive visuals, of course, visuals, which have an impact, I'm not saying we should busy ourselves, just flooding things for the sake of it. But appreciate from how much detail we have from the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, just because of his companions, observing him, appreciate how powerful

00:42:27--> 00:42:33

observance based learning is. So for example, if you're going to teach, you know, for example, you teach

00:42:36--> 00:42:50

online, then try and bring about a situation and circumstance where there's visuals, there's videos that people can watch a humbler now, we live in the deal of ebooks, and so on and so forth. Pretty amazing. Right, I was fortunate to work on a project, teaching new Muslims,

00:42:51--> 00:43:18

the basics of sauna and fasting and zecca and hedge. Just the basics, but some hydrolite was it was in an ebook format. And, you know, they would open a page and on that page, there'd be a link to a video on YouTube, or a link to a PDF somewhere else, or a link to some photos uploaded somewhere and they could hit the photo does a high definition photo, the photo opens you can twist it, you can turn it you can expand it, you know it really it's not really.

00:43:20--> 00:43:58

At the end of it we you know, we said that this is not about reading a book this is about going through an experience. So take this lesson to point my dear brothers and sisters, the importance of engaging as many senses as possible. When we lead we also learn from this My dear brothers and sisters, the importance of following the Sunnah, as close as we can. This was a habit of your loved one who wanted it wasn't just the case of what he was a Hawkeye so we can tell people what he did know it so that Firstly, we can put it into practice and pray as he prayed because he told us to pray as he prayed. And this applies to everything else, right outside of the scope of sunup because

00:43:58--> 00:44:04

if this is the case with the most important thing, which is Salah, then what do you think should be the case with the other matters, right?

00:44:06--> 00:44:31

Because they all fall under the concept of worship and worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala has to be done based upon the mandates and teachings of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And as we've said before, today, we belittle a pseudonym because it's a sinner, but the companions robiola who are married, they glorified it, because it was a Sunnah they did it because he did it some Allahu alayhi wa sallam and they knew that Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:44:33--> 00:44:39

commanded him to do it. So coming back to the earlier point fit cannot as it evolved,

00:44:40--> 00:45:00

is different to how fit was them. It definitely evolved into a science and now we know the conditions of of different acts, the recommended functions of different acts, the disliked matters, and the harar matters and so on and so forth. And all this is taken definitely from the life of Russell

00:45:00--> 00:45:37

mussel Allahu alayhi wa sallam to help make matters easy for us, this habit of the Allahu Allah Germain, they were definitely skilled in the Arabic language. And they were skilled in terms of receiving the revelations. It's not that they just understood, they knew how to speak it, but they could understand the nuances. So it wasn't a case whereby they were taught this is a big, but this is a certain, but they understood it. They understood, you know, what rendered your prayer invalid. They understood what mandated to do this or how to save the prayer. Right? They understood that you know, those things, which are not a big deal, it's better to do but not a big deal, if you don't,

00:45:38--> 00:45:43

right, they understood it from the observance of the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And from

00:45:45--> 00:45:57

their understanding of the text, right, given the rich Arabic abilities, and obviously, without mentioning the great teaching ability of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:45:59--> 00:46:32

The other thing to note, my dear brothers and sisters is that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I mean, for those who are following and as I said, so that we become enlightened, it shouldn't be a case that we pray Salah in a particular way. So we belittle those who prayed in a different way, as you can see here, the, you know, the documentation of his Salah is, is is, you know, of a very high level. So, you know, the author is going through that he sometimes placed his hands here, sometimes he placed it there, sometimes he decided to sometimes he decided that sometimes he sat this way, sometimes he sat another way. And you know, we learn from this

00:46:34--> 00:47:18

acceptable differences of opinion, right, because whichever way you do it, it still boils down to something which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam did, and this teaches us to be more forbearing. Today, we find certain elements being very difficult with the Omarosa lasala, who it was only because a person sector particularly in Santa and not the way this person said, so for example, he placed his hands below his navel, and not on his chest or on his stomach, and not below his level, and so on and so forth. Right? We find people becoming a bit difficult, becoming a bit severe instead, for a matter which the cheriya has kept wide and, and, and easy, right. So as you can see,

00:47:18--> 00:47:36

from from this reading that we've just had, that the documentation is detailed, and it all goes back to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. So if somebody prays with his hands on his stomach, or places on his chest or places it below his navel, or sits in one way or the other way, as we find attributed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:47:38--> 00:47:44

you might smile If I say this, but let me just say it, it shouldn't be a means for us to develop high blood pressure.

00:47:45--> 00:48:01

You know, develop high blood pressure and cholesterol and, and the like we Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from the so this reading should enlighten us. And when we become enlightened, then indeed, we should become more

00:48:03--> 00:48:18

lenient with Omar, Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this is another point. Another point from the reading that we take my dear brothers and sisters how to make the masjid the most beloved place for all elements of the Muslim society. Right?

00:48:21--> 00:48:50

It's very, very important that the masjid is not a place that is detested by the young for example. Now we we learned this from it from from a simple mention or citation in the text that we just had. The fact that masala while he was alive would prolong the sujood if his grandchildren had jumped on his back, there wasn't a case where Oh, do you know it's a hard and fast rule? Now? I got to get them off, throw them off. discipline them, you know, embarrass them make a seed out of them? No, he just prolong the sujood when you

00:48:51--> 00:49:03

look at this look, right? Amazing sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah gave us with even gentle light. So this is how merciful the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was to young boys, right?

00:49:04--> 00:49:06

And you know Subhana Allah,

00:49:07--> 00:49:52

what an amazing man he was, we're lucky we can we can only make dua to Allah to forgive us and get us with engender some Allahu alayhi wa sallam. So the message should be a beloved place, my dear brothers and sisters, it shouldn't be a place that, you know, doesn't serve the purpose of the community. You know, it shouldn't be there. But we have the females of the community not benefiting. Whilst we have the machine is over, there shouldn't be a case where the children are not benefiting. When you have the machine over there. The Masjid is the hub of all success. It's it's the hub that the radiance emanates from, and should become stronger from so that it then spreads across and folds

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

over to the rest of the community and makes the rest of the community strong as well. is very important, my dear brothers and sisters that some of us are in

00:50:00--> 00:50:40

Questions. May Allah forgive us, for those who are sitting on Masjid committee boards, you know, we run messages as if it's a business from one of our businesses. Right? We run messages as if it's it's a business from one of our businesses. And this is wrong, my dear brothers and sisters, if you have been blessed by law to be part of a board or a committee of msgid, make the masjid inclusive, not exclusive. Right? In some countries, you know, females don't get the opportunity to learn anything about Islam and on Juma Are they still not allowed into the masjid, you know, so this is wrong, because what's gonna happen if you don't, if our sisters are not going to get an opportunity

00:50:40--> 00:50:42

to hear about Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:50:43--> 00:50:48

Over now things are better than they have, you know, they get prevented, but then there's other avenues like the internet.

00:50:49--> 00:51:28

But that's not conducive to the Imam who's working in that locality. Because now the women of that locality are going to be learning their Deen from foreigners who are not sensitive to the situation in the community that this Imam is working in. And you're going to have a problem, the best person that everyone in a community should learn from is their email, they will ama that is the best person you can lead to because that color is pretty insensitive to the sensitivities that exist in that particular place. And definitely flip is not a copy and paste from one region to another region. Fifth is specific and unique to the religion that are to the region sorry, that

00:51:29--> 00:52:04

it existed, right? So if we don't open the door to our youth, and our children, our sisters and females to come to the masjid, then they're going to be at home. And now you know, how many homes are free from television and the television is only going to preach matters that attach you to the dunya, you're going to lose elements of the community, you're going to lose the female element, you're going to lose the children, a whole generation is going to go away. Right. And sadly, through some of my travels, I've actually seen this and that's where I'm highlighting it and highlighting it also because we've said that this class is especially for those who work in the dour. Right. Through

00:52:04--> 00:52:14

my travels, I've started to see that messages are only frequented by old people in some regions. I'm not being stereotyped, diosdado mind No. But in some regions, this is a fact.

00:52:15--> 00:52:20

Right? You're not going to get the youth to the rest of the machine is the last thing on their mind.

00:52:21--> 00:52:42

So we need to do Matina saying how can we practically implement this in our lives we need to make the message fun, we need to make the message relevant, we need to make the message the source, the hub, when I say source, not the source that you eat the as you see source I mean the source that you are

00:52:44--> 00:53:17

See, right we make the magic sauce Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he first went to Medina, the first thing he did was established the masjid. But she never we. That's the establishment. This is where all success is going to start from. And we know brothers and sisters that the message is a piece of barricades frequented by angels to parties far away from this environment. And that is why each and every one of us here, speak included we need to develop within ourselves. I love to be in the masjid. This is what the males especially for the females when they can go. And obviously when the females do go there was observed the etiquettes of going I'm not

00:53:17--> 00:53:39

being loose here, my dear brothers and sisters and complaining that we don't open our mercy to the sisters. Yes, some communities the machines are forced to shut their doors because the sisters are not maintaining the student when they come then it becomes a fitna. No, but we're talking about general circumstances, not specific circumstances. Okay. So the machine is definitely a place that we should love to be in because it's a haven.

00:53:40--> 00:53:50

It makes sense. It's a no brainer, right? The machine is a no brainer. You know, should I have my meeting in my lounge or in the masjid? It's a no brainer. Let me have it in the masjid. I should have.

00:53:52--> 00:54:22

Right? If I'm planning on studying, should I study at home or in a Masjid university? No, no doubt, no doubt. So what we're saying brothers and sisters is let's make the masjid accessible. Now, I'm not saying that don't be sensitive to you know, your region. Sometimes there's a lot of thieving and brutality. So sometimes you got to shut the message between prayers, that's fine. That's an x. That is a valid excuse. Right? Safety and Security is important. But I'm talking about places where you don't have to, but we still shut the machine down.

00:54:23--> 00:54:43

And when we run our programs, we don't adapt and make the programs conducive to the audience that's in front of us. So then they don't come back for the next program. Right. So we need to move with the times my dear brothers and sisters because obviously, the means by which we achieve something as long as it's Helen, the Sharia has given it

00:54:44--> 00:54:59

you know, the elasticity to evolve and be tweaked and change so that he can accommodate and be inclusive, as we said and not inclusive. So the fact that he was allowed to delay the sujood and until his grandchildren got out. This is a lesson

00:55:00--> 00:55:21

Should be fun. These, you know, no child who, you know, went through that experience and never got scolded, for example, and the adults were sensitive to the fact that this is a child. You know, no child went through the setup and through this and ever hated the machine Rather, they wanted to come back to the machine. So this is very important point also, my dear brothers and sisters, as you've seen

00:55:23--> 00:55:56

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very diverse in his worship. So sometimes he said, This way, sometimes he it you know, in the defense, the Shahada sat like this at the end, he is reported that he said like that, he's reported to have prayed this in another report, he he prayed this with this addition, in another report, he prayed something else. So what you can see this this diversity in the worship of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in a prayer and diversity Allah, diversity increases concentration. Why? Because things stop just being an automated routine.

00:55:58--> 00:56:01

Does that make sense? Right, it stops becoming an automated routine.

00:56:03--> 00:56:19

And because your mind has to engage the prayer because you're doing something different every time it breeds better concentration, and better huzhou and contentment, so it shouldn't be a case where you know you read the same surah every Salah I know today what's our famous one good

00:56:21--> 00:57:02

What are some what are some and in the opinion hacker cofa right? I'm sure you giggling behind your computer screens right? But this is this is what makes our Salah robotic and sometimes what happens is we end up forgetting which unit of prayer we in because the Salah has become a norm kind of robotic, the spirit of it is lost. And we fail to grow from our Sunnah as we should. Right? So take guidance from the messenger sallallahu alayhi, wasallam and lead difference application sometimes he would stop the seller using his application at the time he would use a another application right? So your job is to be diverse. Learn as many different applications you can learn. So you can be diverse

00:57:02--> 00:57:18

in terms of what you read in the record what you read in sudduth what you read at the beginning of your Salah, right? This is important and this will help you engage your Sunnah in a better way rather than it just becoming a routine. The other thing My dear brothers and sisters, that we learn is

00:57:19--> 00:57:25

that Salah is his Vicar is different from before the fella

00:57:26--> 00:57:34

until even after the solder is weaker. Right? Think about it you have the event the event is thicker, you have the power the power is thicker.

00:57:36--> 00:57:37

Right?

00:57:38--> 00:58:06

Then you start the prayer Allahu Akbar. This is the after you start immediately you reciting this all Vicar you're going to ruku you recite you don't just go into the core. So you say Allahu Akbar this liqueur in that in the Salah. In the record, you you you recite different applications you get up as you go down is to do is thicker. The whole saga, from beginning to the end is that remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala there's no period in it where you silent

00:58:07--> 00:58:25

and Daydream or have a moment to think of matters of the dunya No, you have entered into the Presence of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's why it's so appropriate and so amazing that you stopped the Salah, saying Allahu Akbar, right that Allah is greater. This is a technical translation.

00:58:26--> 00:58:55

Right over the convent translation is Allah is the Greatest. So you think you saying Allah is greater Allahu Akbar greater, greater than me? greater than my feelings are greater than my worries greater than my children. Greater than my spouse, greater than my parents greater than my job greater than my car greater than my worries are lies greater. That's how you start your Salah by throwing everything else which is not solid out of your Salah

00:58:56--> 00:59:36

and keeping everything that is solid inside of your Salah. Say Allahu Akbar, what an amazing Vicar to begin the sada and then your journey begins ensuring that from beginning till the end, you remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and early I said, you know the vicar is even till after the Salah, because we actually know that after the Salah, this has gone and we'll come across it in Shaolin in future reading. Right, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite certain Vicar after the Sunnah. So even after the Salah is right, and they should teach us how amazing keeping our tunnels moist with the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala is, you know, just the other day I put out

00:59:36--> 00:59:43

a tweet, on my telegram channel on the telegram channel. I have a telegram channel. For those who don't know,

00:59:44--> 01:00:00

inshallah the brothers can share you the links. So one of the posts I put out there was worship hard, but also worship smart. Right. Worship smart. Yes. You know, because a lot of the

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

Time to worship hard and because it's hard then we give up. But the days that you can't worship hard worship smart, right? And the beautiful thing about worshiping smart is you can even do it on the days that you worship heart. Right? It's just amazing. Right? So for example, if you just say Subhana Allah, who will be Hamdi, Subhana vilavi.

01:00:18--> 01:00:31

That's a smart thing to say, because of the sort of loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam said that there is light on the tongue, beloved to Allah, heavy on the skin. It's amazing. Amazing, right?

01:00:33--> 01:00:49

That's worshipping Allah smart. Right? worshiping hard might entail a one hour delay. But you can't make draft one hour every day. So you worship Allah, smart. You will do it the smart way. You see all I asked you upon me and all those who I

01:00:51--> 01:01:30

consider important to me. And I'd love to include in my draft, I asked you for all of us all that which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked you to give him and I asked you to protect us from all that which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam asked you to protect him from Allah showered upon us your message. I think in this class we discussed the importance of asking the lawfulness right. See Allah be merciful upon, right? Because you're asking Allah for everything that is considered merciful. Alhamdulillah, right. They see Allah show upon His mercy. This is short, so it doesn't need one hour. But that's worshiping smart, that's being comprehensive. So let's say we

01:01:30--> 01:01:32

might be a brothers and sisters, we need to be smart.

01:01:33--> 01:01:41

When we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And look after this important lesson that we gained from the Sunnah, right? That the Salah

01:01:43--> 01:01:59

entails the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala from the beginning to the end, now, we have about 10 minutes left, I wanted to go into the blessings of Allah inshallah, we'll do that in the next lesson. But for today's remaining moments, allow me to use them in just sharing some issues that we should

01:02:01--> 01:02:17

concentrate on, especially with regards to sauna especially with, you know, when you're a worker, point number one, it's a message to myself first and foremost, as always, is that, you know, in working in that hour, you shouldn't be the one who's late for something.

01:02:18--> 01:02:42

It shouldn't be that the young people or the elderly people in the community, they've started the Salah with the Imam, and then the man makes the salad. And then people look back, because they want to leave the masjid. And they see you standing up to complete the prayer all the time sometimes is fine. Right? But all the time, this is not good brothers and sisters, as I said, you guys are role models, you guys are role models, right.

01:02:44--> 01:02:45

So you have that added responsibility.

01:02:47--> 01:03:17

You have that added responsibility. Right. So you know, for example, you know, I was asked by a brother the other day and he said Jeff, can I listen to an A sheet with beatboxing? So I said look, you are the head of a dow organization. Right? If you listen to it, even if we said beatboxing was okay. But if you were listening to stuff, which was questionable, and somebody came to visit you and they, they didn't ask you is this beatboxing and they thought it's actually music? Because some beatboxing is extreme.

01:03:20--> 01:04:03

What do you think what happened? They will say, Well, if that guy who runs that organization can listen to music, so can I right? If you're going to run your course with mixed seating, for example, right, going against the sooner, right. People will say well, that that organization, they you know, they intermingle and mix so our weddings can be intermingled and mixed. And brothers and sisters, if you think this is a fairy tale you better you know, rub your eyes and pack your cheeks and wake up was not a fairy tale. This is a reality. You know, excuse the colloquial English. But you know what I mean? This, this is a reality. Communities are, you know, they, this is what they use to justify

01:04:03--> 01:04:38

their actions. So we must understand that there are repercussions, there's repercussions, if we always seen standing up always as a habit hallas the new generation, we'll see, well, this is our role model, this teenager, so and so with this 20 year old so and so you're a role model to the five year old, the four year old, the six year old, right? Let's see, well, that's what they do. So it's fine. It doesn't seem like a bad thing. Right? So there's repercussions brothers and sisters, especially when you work in the Dow and I'm not saying there's only if you work in the Dow all Muslims shouldn't make it a habit to be late for the prayer and then having to always be standing up

01:04:38--> 01:04:41

at the end. We have a panel with Allah forgive us. So this is a point.

01:04:42--> 01:04:48

The other thing My dear brothers and sisters is, especially when you run the conference events, the causes.

01:04:49--> 01:04:59

I understand that you know, what happens is sometimes it's difficult for you to pay the salary with the first Gemma app because you're taking care of security matters. Maybe it's

01:05:00--> 01:05:38

lunchtime at the cost of the conference, you receiving the caterers, or whatever, but make it a point out of courtesy, to explain to people that the ideal thing is to pray your salon time. And today, what you saw from some of the volunteers was because of ABCD, and E. So, you know, you've cleared the doubts in any of the people who sort of seen you do what you've done, or, you know, we've seen the action you're dealing, yes, you have a valid excuse of the Sherry act, right? It's your right to delay. But it's your responsibility now, to explain to the people, especially in this day and age, especially since there's a good chance that even one person or even half a person is

01:05:38--> 01:06:15

going to take what you did as as a sweetener for them for the rest of their life. Right. So understand the responsibility. Nobody wants that burden on their shoulders. Nobody wants that burden on their shoulders. If for example, you traveling and you join the prayer, explain to the people so that they don't just don't don't think that they'll just figure it out. Right? No, explain to the people tell them. Look, people are musafir and I joined the prayers, I wasn't feeling well, I knew I knew I was gonna be really busy. And so I've joined the solid, you know, you guys go ahead. But don't just leave it up in the air, right? Because there is a responsibility upon us, my dear

01:06:15--> 01:06:19

brothers and sisters. So this is just something more specific to that that was seen

01:06:20--> 01:06:22

that we should develop

01:06:23--> 01:06:58

an acute understanding about, especially given how volatile our scene is. It is volatile, you know, Mashallah, it's good to see so many people wanting to do to do that. But sadly, we have a lot of people that that will who are not qualified to. And, you know, once it's good from one end, there's a lot of harm from the other end, because why we are now nurturing the next generation two lakh ideals, right. And that's why we've started the saddle mat class. And we said, It's especially for those working, because we said we need something to give the people which fills up their tanks and keeps them motivated to continue

01:06:59--> 01:07:29

worshiping align the work that they do number one, and number two, to make them effective role models, make them effective role models and even this book that we're reading, it's not enough that you've just had a sham read. You need to read it yourself before class. And you need to read this book again, maybe twice, maybe thrice. Right? Make put it in your plans, cite it as homework, you have to read it again, my dear brothers and sisters, right? It can't be a case whereby I've read it once and that's it. No, it won't stick and that's not the way to acquire knowledge, and that's not the way to develop right? So

01:07:30--> 01:08:07

take care of these matters. My dear brothers and sisters inshallah, when we return next week, we will go into the ideals or the the blessings and Fatherland, benefits of the prayer Bismillah hytera Allah and after that we'll continue with our reading in Shall I move into some of the voluntary prayers of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his guidance with regards to that once again, my dear brothers and sisters, a sincere apology from me from the bottom of my heart. For the change in schedule, your time is important. I really value your time. And please have a look at your email were offered my explanation as to what's happened and why we need to have these Tuesday classes just

01:08:19--> 01:08:23

We also accept from us and we have good hope in Allah we have good hope in Allah, that Allah will accept from us inshallah, until next time, we will not preserve us in his obedience.
