melodious Saddam Hussein or shadow no Muhammad and I do a lot of solo solo early, but early What's your sentiment Tasneem Anthea, meningioma Dean, and my bag shallow talent. Today we're going to cover

00:00:12--> 00:00:34

several points, starting with the essence of saliva, and what is saliva all about? Is it just external submission? Or is there more to the Select and then the movements. The second topic we're going to cover is one of the wisdom wisdoms behind the Salah

00:00:35--> 00:00:58

is that when you feel worried, and you feel sad, you have to recognize what the reason for that feeling is. And it's being distanced from ALLAH SubhanA Tana, in the salon is a way to, to bridge the gap, right to take away that distance that's between you and Allah subhanaw taala, then it will claim is going to go directly into

00:00:59--> 00:01:12

each aspect of salon, and why it's important for the completeness of servitude to Allah subhana data to show you how the salon is a comprehensive act of worship.

00:01:13--> 00:01:56

And so from laying that out, he's going to go into will do, then he's going to talk about coming to the masjid and then he's going to talk about the tech be totally wrong. They just want to talk about that stuff, tech, and he do either to make it the very beginning of your Salah, where you start reciting Fatiha, then he's going to talk about this, the other and so on and so forth. And so today, we knew that Tyler, we're actually going to get into the meat of the treaties and shallow China. And we are on page 25 1.6, page 25. Before we get into this, it's important to know how we got here. And it is critical that you have to book with you either physical copy, or PDF. Because you have to

00:01:56--> 00:02:01

follow along the whole point of Studying a book is actually also to learn how to read.

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

Learning how to read is not just that you know the words so you know what the words mean? Or you know what the sentence mean? is figuring out what is the relationship between this paragraph and the paragraph that comes after? How do these things relate? Why is the author saying what he's saying? You have, because this is what it means to actually develop literacy. So that you can open up a book at some point, after you study, you know, enough times that you're now able to follow that same process by yourself. Alright, and it doesn't mean you're going to understand everything, but it means you know, how to look out for what is this book? What is the author actually trying to tell

00:02:38--> 00:02:52

me. And that's part of this, the reason why we actually just read books and not just come and just do lectures is to learn how to read, which is super important for us to do. So last week, we ended up talking about

00:02:53--> 00:02:59

the three different types of people that will claim to lie they he says that people are of three types in general.

00:03:01--> 00:03:02

Number one was

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

the one

00:03:06--> 00:03:12

the one with the good, good farmland, what how did he describe that person? What do you say about that person

00:03:15--> 00:03:23

uses his limbs that that person didn't care of diligent. So all of these, all of these come in that it has taken cautious.

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

Time something else.

00:03:26--> 00:03:34

Mindful. So my fellow Zakka, lucky, right? This person is the mindful person. And

00:03:36--> 00:03:46

he mentioned several things on it, like you said, the good land and tilling the land, and he's cautious, and so on and so forth. But there's three main things that make a person mindful

00:03:47--> 00:04:11

to summarize what everyone kind of says. So you need you need to know this. And you can go back wherever it is in a book. And you can just write this on the side, being mindful, first of all, is that you recognize a loss favor. That's that's the first thing you recognize that he's giving you a gift. Right? The second part is that you utilize the gift to please the gifter

00:04:12--> 00:04:19

All right, so that gift that Allah azza wa jal gave you, you're using that gift to please Him. So Hannah, who was Adam?

00:04:20--> 00:04:46

And then the third thing is that you protect the gift. All right, that you protect it so he gave the example of making sure that you're weeding it right, making sure that nothing else is messing up your craps and that you also set up guards right, he said, You'll even hire some guards to set up the gates to protect it. Right? And to make sure that nothing else and he's going to come and destroy that favor, that you have

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

for you.

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

The second type of person is

00:04:52--> 00:04:54

heedless, Lis

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

so this person he called treacherous

00:05:01--> 00:05:02

because what was treachery? Me?

00:05:04--> 00:05:05

Misuse something

00:05:11--> 00:05:38

evil, okay. Betrayal is the word you think of when you think of treachery. That person betrayed a particular trust that they had. So, so they prove treacherous, right? And, and when we think about why this person is treacherous, they use the favors that Allah Subhana Allah gave them to disobey Allah azza wa jal, right. And we talked about something under that, which is that not everything. That is

00:05:39--> 00:06:04

not everything that is beneficial is not everything that is beneficial is halal. And not everything that is haram is totally harmful. And that's why the person who is treacherous misuses the favorites of Allah azza wa jal, sometimes they may misuse their favor, but it's beneficial to other people as harming themselves, because they learned so that people can say they were a scholar,

00:06:05--> 00:06:49

but then teaching is still beneficial to the people that are that are learning from them. Right? So that's treachery. In fact, that's treachery. Right? A person who for example, they get their earnings from rabbet right, but then they give to the poor to the poor benefit from that. Absolutely. Is what he's doing. halau No, It's haram to take to get your earnings from rabbet but this is how he's he's now giving sadaqa based on it so not everything that is haram is totally harmful. Right? That's an important point. It's important concept to understand, just like not everything that is beneficial is is Hello. So somebody might say listen, on Friday night I need that

00:06:49--> 00:07:25

shot like I need that to calm down like nerves and it might for them for them it may have some benefit in in their lives which I'll talk about that no Quran is still Hara it's still haram and sometimes this is this is a problem people have to overcome because they're putting their intellect above above the text I don't understand why this is like halaal or this is we have to do this so I don't understand this and this is it because you're not blinded meaning you're not going to know everything and that's fine. Just like you can't see everything you have some sight but you can't see everything you have ears and ability to hear but you can't hear everything. And you have a mind

00:07:25--> 00:07:37

mashallah and ability to ration but that doesn't mean you can understand everything. So know your place, and don't go against me. So that's the that's the second type the treacherous The third type of person is

00:07:38--> 00:07:55

heedless and why they have no claim say that that one is even worse than the treacherous person is the worst of the three categories. Said person is useless. laughing I'm gonna do that for you. I'm gonna ask you, I don't bring anything to the dunya and do nothing for the hereafter along with that

00:07:56--> 00:08:03

fight. So now we move into what they will claim says the secret and essence of solid neck top

00:08:06--> 00:08:08

page 25 Page 25.

00:08:11--> 00:08:31

So reading from page 25 1.6, the secret essence of Salah the secret in essence of Salon lies in the inclination of the heart towards Allah and focusing attention on him while praying. Alright, so this is what you write on the side or you write some the essence of Salon

00:08:32--> 00:08:34

boils down to two things.

00:08:36--> 00:08:51

And this is super important for us. Subhanallah because the reality is, is that a lot of people when we learn how to pray, right, either by watching your parents pray, or you accepted a slap somebody taught you how to pray. Everything focuses on one

00:08:52--> 00:08:53


00:08:54--> 00:09:00

First face the Qibla say Allahu Akbar. Don't worry about the DUA you can learn that later.

00:09:01--> 00:09:20

Say sorta till Fatiha. When I when talking about what this Fatiha actually mean, right? And then you got to make record and then so you just learn and what movement Subhan Allah? Did we ever go back and actually try to think about Wait a minute. Why did we start standing and not in prostration?

00:09:22--> 00:09:30

Why do we go into court before we go into sudo? Like what's and just start thinking why Allahu Akbar Allah has 99 names.

00:09:31--> 00:09:39

Me It's when Illawarra right. And he has more than that. But the point is like why Ekberg? Why not? Allahu Allah?

00:09:40--> 00:09:50

So like actually trying to figure out what is this prayer? What is this supposed to actually be doing? For me? It's interesting because

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

there's not there aren't many other things that we do in a day more than salon. Right? Like even meals how many meals a day

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


00:10:01--> 00:10:12

three, I mean, have you in five squares? That's that's probably a problem. Right? The three meals. So when you're young, you just eat right? Because because you're young, as you get older, what do you start going?

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

snack to eat unless you start?

00:10:18--> 00:10:54

You started considering what you eat, wait a minute, okay, these are vegetables. I mean, he has my plate needs to be green, right? And then I need some protein and then and then if you really get into it, you might start measuring stuff, right? Because you start realizing that it's not just about eating anything, you actually need to consider what it is that you're putting in your body because that's your fuel and it's important. Do it again, do we stop? Let's think about what is this slide actually supposed to be doing? Because the food is supposed to do something for you. And if it doesn't do it for you, right? If you just eaten mindless food, and it's not even making you full,

00:10:54--> 00:11:06

and after a while you start realizing like what am I doing therefore, right? Or if you eat something makes you sick? And you're like, I can't do that again. You might eat something to have an allergic reaction to it. You know, you can't eat that again. So you monitor that.

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

And the reason the reason why it's important to us is because we need food to live

00:11:13--> 00:11:45

and Allah azza wa jal them, likewise for our hearts to be alive, we have to pray. It's it's it is absolutely necessary for our souls. Right? But understanding what that sloth is supposed to be doing and working through it that's that's what this book is about. So the first thing when when we look at the essence of select what is this slot all about? It is about the number one the heart turning to Allah subhanaw taala that is you are totally devoted to Allah in salon.

00:11:49--> 00:12:14

And I know this is just this is all cognitive and theoretical at this point. It's just okay. It was okay to heart turns. But knowing is important. It's the it's the step that you need before doing. So knowing what it's supposed to look like. And as we say, easier said than then done, but if you don't even know to aspire to something, if you don't even know that that's what salon is about. How do you how do you get there?

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

As I was teaching a class over the weekend,

00:12:19--> 00:12:27

so was sunnah by Amelia beloved is where Rahim Allah Tada so he has a small book on it called sunnah.

00:12:29--> 00:12:31

First Hadith and sizable hearty, right?

00:12:32--> 00:12:43

Is what anybody know the first Hadith desirable heart is in the mala Mala vignette, Bacardi at the very beginning of his uh, he says, had definitely Khomeini, they have the loved one is will be

00:12:44--> 00:13:01

called her death and Sophia, and even again, so in the very beginning of cyber carding. His first hadith is he's taken from his Sheikh Abdullah, Venezuela and Khomeini, right who wrote so the Sunnah book on it. So but before I asked the students to

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

to open up sigh Oh, hi, I just said that anyway. Anyway, remember I say starting from the beginning and somebody said people memorize I heard as I still people right now kids, they memorize all the codes we sit

00:13:15--> 00:13:26

in a teens right? After they've memorized the Quran, six books, they weren't as party Muslim. I will tell you the Nisei had been magic with the internet

00:13:28--> 00:14:13

with this man, so somebody was like, alright, you can see him like wait a minute. They didn't even know what it was a thing. Right? How do you aspire? If you don't even know that that's a thing. Right? So I'm saying I'm saying what the salah is the same thing. You event you have to know first what this is about. And then you can aspire actually to get there and seek Allah's aid and getting there. And that's again, that's what this class is about shallow Yang and we're trying to help each other get there within that time. The second thing the second thing is no I am not going to lie late. He uses the word. Hell Durrell Culp right. So the presence of the heart. In other words,

00:14:13--> 00:14:16

complete presence.

00:14:19--> 00:14:23

undivided attention, full focus. All right.

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

What do I say?

00:14:28--> 00:14:30

Complete presence,

00:14:31--> 00:14:46

undivided attention fully focused, fully focused. This is what even okay and we're not going to lie les is trying to be number one, you turn your heart to Allah and you are present.

00:14:47--> 00:14:53

Absolutely present completely in the moment as they say, Right. A lot of

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

the because mental health terminology is spread out now and they talk about being present.

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

hear people talk about that and relationships

00:15:03--> 00:15:13

being present. Alright? I mean, I don't necessarily ascribe to all of that, but I mean, you get the point right being present in this moment is critical.

00:15:16--> 00:15:16


00:15:17--> 00:16:01

But read the second sentence, consider the case of a person whose heart is engaged in one's own thoughts and worldly affairs. He is like a person who visits the king and intending to apologize for his own mistakes and shortcomings. He's eating rain from the clouds of his gut of his generosity and mercy to Norwich his heart enough so it can be at his it can be a service. However, as soon as he arrived at his at his doorstep, and is on the verge of calling upon him, he turns away from the King, and instead starts to busy himself with things that are most disliked and disparaged by the king. Even as his heart is inclined towards trivial matters, he still stands still sent

00:16:02--> 00:16:43

his servants IV limbs to serve Him on His behalf into his cues and compensate for the absence of his heart. Alright, stop right there. Stop right there. Alright, so you got to be able to break this stuff down, right? What example was he given us? He's, he's talking about the person who's, who doesn't do number one and two. So number one and two was what that the heart is, the heart turns to Allah, you are fate, which, which is part of the hikma facing the Qibla. Okay, you have to have a direction to face. So your heart turns to Allah subhana Tada. And you're completely in the moment. All right. So he says the one that is not like that, okay. In other words, the one was not focused,

00:16:44--> 00:17:23

is preoccupied with his own thoughts. Okay. He's like the one who's going to the king. Now, you think about any any of the subjects, it's an honor to be able to have an audience with the King, right? And so this person is going to the king. He's made some mistakes, he messed up. And he's saying, let me go to the king before. Before the king says the soldiers to me, I'm just gonna go throw myself at his mercy. pologize. Right. And so he's going to the king, he wants an audience with the king and he wants to, wants to apologize. He wants to beseech His mercy, right. And then he also wants to get something from the King. So because they said, Look, I am swamped, I want to serve you

00:17:23--> 00:17:56

better, but like, I need to eat good. Alright. So it says to the king, like, and I need something to help nourish me as well. Okay, so now, just as he's about to go in, right? You don't just walk up to the king, you got to you go through a few stages before you get to the king. So just as he's about to get in, to talk to the king. He started looking right, left, this is how I have no claim described. I know it didn't translate exactly that way. But in Arabic, this what he's saying. So he's saying, He's turning right and left might even just turn around and he's preoccupied.

00:17:57--> 00:18:11

So he has his own, like, servants, that this, this one was going to see the King. He's got his own, you know, servants. So instead of him going aside to talk to the king, he says the servants

00:18:12--> 00:18:28

so I'm a little too busy to talk to the king. Basically, I'm preoccupied some other stuff, I guess stuff going on here and there, right, and he sends his service. This is, this is what it means. I want you to get the get the picture. So go back and read this role. Read it again.

00:18:29--> 00:19:12

Consider the case of a person instead of the case of a person whose heart is engaged in one's own thoughts and worldly affairs. He is like a person who visited Ken King intending to apologize for his own mistakes and shortcomings beseeching rain, from the clouds of his generosity and mercy to ignore his heart enough so it can be at his service. However, as soon as he arrives at his doorstep, is on the verge of calling upon him. He turns away from the King, and instead starts to busy himself with things that are most disliked and disparaged by the king. All right, we got that understanding saying so even even as his heart is inclined towards trivial matters. He still sends forth His

00:19:12--> 00:19:25

servants IV his lens to serve Him on His behalf into excuse and compensate for the absence of his work. So in other words, now he's he's making that he's giving you that example. Hmm.

00:19:26--> 00:19:46

So now he's basically it's like now my hands are gonna move they're gonna go up, my tongue is gonna move. I'm gonna, but the heart is not there. Right. And so this is like his rookie sending the the servants in to talk to the king. Right? But he's basically saying I'm a little too busy to talk to the king myself.

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

Despite that, but despite that, the generosity in the benevolence of the King refuses to dismiss to dismiss is the servant of his office leaves, obviously is without grant

00:20:00--> 00:20:18

Do your master hogging the slaves of Allah in portion of his verse another words that God has sent in to in his servants, right? To the King. The King is so generous and so benevolent that he's like, I still give you something right I still give you something

00:20:20--> 00:20:38

but there is a difference between the one the ones who wins in the earning earns the trophy and those given a consolation prize out of compassion and mercy. Right. So there's a difference between really taking the cup home right and getting a little what they call those

00:20:40--> 00:20:44

participation trophies. Yeah, hey, participation trophies, which is a thing now.

00:20:48--> 00:21:31

And for all there will be ranks from what they do. And he may have paid them that that he may pay them for their deeds and they will not move on it Allah azza wa jal says what he couldn't then della Jaya to me, man, I mean, it is different levels. Right? It's, it's so interesting how even modern slang, right? Actually, people get it. Like they say his levels to this thing. Yeah, Allah has was also really cold in the raja manual. It's different levels, you know, you're not getting the same. The person who just is going through the motions is not going to get the same thing, as with the person who's in it with his heart is going to get and they might be standing right next to each

00:21:31--> 00:21:40

other praying behind the same. Amen. Right. And that was saliva. And it's taken him the agenda and the other one so I was not doing much for

00:21:43--> 00:21:52

Allah created mankind solely to worship Him. And He created everything else to be at me in concert concerns. It is related in a heavy

00:21:55--> 00:22:30

the Hola, Hannah, stop stop there so that the author actually did not call us a hadith Kotze he said Phil Asteron. Elaine, that's different. So so divine narration when scholars use that term, divine narration Aletheia el Ilahi. Sometimes what they're referring to oftentimes, what they're referring to is something that has been narrated from Ireland keytab something that has been narrated from the People of the Scripture, which is also called what and he I know that there's a technical term for that

00:22:31--> 00:22:40

they call Israel end yet is Salam Ely yet. Okay, so the narrations from Israel In

00:22:42--> 00:22:59

Israel India. So this here the cross out Hadith could see because the there's a big difference between Hadith Kotze and SR la which is a better translated as a divine narration not

00:23:00--> 00:23:25

Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Oh, son of Adam, I created you to worship Me and created everything else for you. So by my rights upon you do not indulge in matters other than what I needed you for. Okay. All right, stop there. So I again I'm not going to stop everywhere where I think that there's a better translation is that's not really the issue, but sometimes the the meaning is not coming through

00:23:26--> 00:23:34

and so it is important that you know that we look at that so here he says so by my rights upon you in Arabic he says

00:23:40--> 00:24:01

Nah, he says for be happy I like led to shoven be man called up to laka am man Halak to a Mahalo to Carla. Right. So I will translate our that were says do not indulge in matters No, he says do not use what I created for you. Which is what

00:24:02--> 00:24:18

the dunya that do not use what I created for you. Right I created for you, the dunya do not use what I created for you, to distract you from what you were created for.

00:24:20--> 00:24:26

That do not use do not use what I created for you, to distract you.

00:24:27--> 00:24:31

From what I created you for all right.

00:24:34--> 00:24:36

Which which, which again, this is a

00:24:38--> 00:24:55

very we don't have any evidence that Allah azza wa jal said this is not authentic from the prophet Isaiah Salatu was saying however, many of the scholars mentioned that this meaning is authentic include and as well as the what's to come, which is also an Israel Ed narration.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

But in another narration Oh

00:25:00--> 00:25:32

also an agent to worship me. So do not play Okay. So do not play around forget that I think so do not play around, like just like we say stop playing around, right. So do not play around. Yes, I guarantee your provision in this life. So do not tie your tie on yourself is the provision, secure provision been about do not make it a concern, because provisions are already decreed. Alright. So, in other words, alliances in this in this narration, if you will,

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

I have taken responsibility of providing for you. So, Don't exhaust yourself, right, this is actually

00:25:42--> 00:26:20

it mean the meaning comes out here where it says, do not tire yourself, Don't exhaust yourself, like to the point that you that you cease to worship Allah subhanaw taala Yeah, it's affecting your worship, that your risk seeking your risk is affecting your ability to worship Allah subhana tat don't don't let it get to that point because Allah azza wa jal has already written it. Now, Oh, son of Adam. Whenever you seek me, you shall find me. And whenever you find me, who shall find everything, but if you were to lose me, you would lose everything. Very, I ought to be the most beloved one to your heart. Yeah, so

00:26:21--> 00:26:22


00:26:24--> 00:27:01

if you find me you have found everything and if you lose me, you'd have lost everything. The think about the statement of Allah Subhana Allah so little hash out? Well, that's a Kunal Kalinina Ness Allah for NCR home and also don't be like those who forgot Allah. And so then Allah Who caused them to forget themselves. If you lose Allah, you lost everything, even yourself. Because if you don't recognize in that moment that you are Abdullah, but you lost yourself, you've lost yourself. Right? And then and then as it as it ends, our to be the most beloved one to your heart.

00:27:02--> 00:27:42

Allah azza wa jal says, In the Quran, Allah Dena Ave. A shed to help Bella. Those who believe are way more intense in the love for Allah subhana who was at even Elijah Rahim Allah to Anna. He says in his book fuggle and masala Fiat and Hello, and the virtue that the knowledge of the self has over the knowledge of the halal. He said that this narration is not found in any of the books of Hadith, it's from the Islamic end yet, and that the meaning is authentic.

00:27:44--> 00:27:56

Play. This is why Allah Most High Vados the means through which people can be near him, invoke Him, earn his love and enjoy His company. Now

00:27:57--> 00:28:32

1.7 experiencing the detachment from Allah during the integrals between divided by curves, the Abdullah or the eyes of Allah experienced his time to he business detachment from Allah, hardening of the heart, disregarding the steeps and disposes towards sitting during the intervals between the five daily prayers, this deplorable, this deplorable change takes him away from his Lord and prevents him from being near to him and alienates him from his position as the true Allah.

00:28:34--> 00:28:52

So here, it'll Cayambe he starts this section off, not not section 1.7 Section 1.6 talking about the essence of the salon. Right, and then the main idea behind the salon is that you are totally devoted to Allah Subhana Allah totally present

00:28:53--> 00:28:56

after the salon was going to happen, naturally,

00:28:58--> 00:29:01

you're not going to be in the same state anymore, right now.

00:29:02--> 00:29:25

Again, through through doing this day after day, and then week after week, month, after month, year after year, you should see a change who you were last year should be different than who you were, this year based on based on that select the consistency in the Select, but from one slot slot to another. And there's a there's a time in between. There is a level of

00:29:26--> 00:29:59

slips that people make sometimes sometimes deliberate sins that a person commits, which is different from from a slit, and that's sometimes there's just indifference, I just don't feel like doing anything or whatever it might be. All of that begins to create a distance between the slave and ALLAH SubhanA who attack this is basically what he's trying with the office saying there. Alright, so now what he says even worse, even worse, he may really deliver himself to his enemy Shavon who captures him put

00:30:00--> 00:30:32

machines in lots of in the prison of his base designers, causing him to experience nothing but anxiety, grief, sorrow and regret, while being unaware of the reasons behind his wretched conditions, put it put put, like a line, highlight that, while being unaware of the reason behind this condition. What is he say? Once a person submits to Shape Outline, he turns his soul over, right to his own desires and whims and these type of things right.

00:30:33--> 00:30:35

Now he's, he's locked up.

00:30:36--> 00:30:47

Now he gets locked up, this is prison because now your desires are controlling, right? And a person doesn't realize because usually usually when we think of desires, we think about stuff that that person was

00:30:49--> 00:30:52

temporarily enjoys, right? They want that thing. So

00:30:54--> 00:30:55

even though they want it.

00:30:57--> 00:31:11

This is something that they want to do. But then they start, it doesn't do anything for now. So they're not feeling right inside and maybe they feel a little anxious. So they're feeling sad about something or they're regretting and they don't realize why am i

00:31:15--> 00:31:19

but it's not making them feel good. Right. So,

00:31:21--> 00:32:12

it is through the mercy of his Lord, the Most Compassionate who decreed upon him a comprehensive act of worship, made up of diverse phases and format. So when he when he says phases informants, literally, it's different parts in different situations. And what he's talking about here is standing, bowing, prostrating sitting, which you might do before to select like making will do so, there's different this activity badda is made up of different parts, different situations, each each phase and format corresponds to the different actions he committed and conditions he experienced outside us a lot more. So, it is it is designed so that he so that the goodness and benefit he

00:32:12--> 00:32:41

acquires from each phase is in a in a measured proportionate to his needs. As this act of worship I use a lot is prescribed to demonstrate his servitude to Allah. Alright, so here with the author's telling us, Rahim Allah is that each part of the salon matches something that is outside of the salon, meaning every everything you do in the salon

00:32:43--> 00:32:57

is supposed to match, or will match something that you've done outside of the salon, so that it removes any negative impact that something you did outside the salon has. Right.

00:32:58--> 00:33:16

And he's going to start with the issue of a voodoo. Okay, now hot, what does that look like for example? So, and this is what he's going to talk about in a minute. But if outside the salon, somebody does something, and they actually have physical

00:33:18--> 00:33:21

dirt that needs to be removed, that how does that go?

00:33:22--> 00:33:46

Through we'll do right also will do is, is a ritual form of purity that erases sins, right? And then there's things you say after we'll do that draws you closer to Allah Subhana Allah all this before the salon. And all of this related to something that has happened outside of the salon parallel to this is what he's going to talk about now in shallow time. This is his prelude to say

00:33:47--> 00:34:33

to because he wants to talk about each part of the salon. He's trying to show you that Allah azza wa jal has prescribed an activity be added that is so comprehensive, that there's absolutely nothing else like it, which is why saliva is considered to be the greatest ritual act of worship. And it's now 1.8 discussion on we will do is the describe ritual whereby dirt and filth are cleansed and removed. So Allah is believing slave may stay pure in His presence. The effect of voodoo that manifests itself outwardly is the cleansing of the body and the limbs using the act of worship. So the inward effect, on the other hand, on the other hand, is such itself, as it has, it has to do

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

with the purification of the heart, from its sins through repentance. Alright, so stop right there. What effect does we'll do have, in order to answer that, we got to say,

00:34:44--> 00:34:48

amb, but what effect this will do have a.

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

So let's go let's go externally or outwardly, right. And then we can say, Part B is, is internally inward. By

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

externally what this will do, what does it do?

00:35:03--> 00:35:13

Right? So it physically removes any dirt that may be going, all right? And inwardly or internally, what does it do?

00:35:14--> 00:35:56

It cleanses the heart. It cleanses the heart through Toba. He's gonna talk about that now. Right? The two aspects of voodoo are inscribed in the statement of Allah has water either in the lung Hipple in the lung hood with the webbing we have been working on healing. Indeed, Allah loves those who are consistently repent, repentance, and love, loves those who purify themselves. Now in Allah, you hit to webbing where you hit boom, and mudita hating. So Allah azza wa jal combines between two types of people that he loves here. Who are they, the tau were born and who want to tell everyone what do they do?

00:35:57--> 00:36:04

Yeah, there is. There's a there's a tab in the web, right? A tab is somebody who does what?

00:36:05--> 00:36:11

Right. So a tab is somebody who has done or is doing Tober right? And what is Tober?

00:36:15--> 00:36:21

Repentance turn back to Allah. Okay. Bye. Was there was 20 tokenistic far.

00:36:23--> 00:37:11

Right, so so so Toba requires, that you have the firm determination never to go back to, to commit in essence doesn't mean that you won't do it again, it means that you are firmly you have firmly made that decision, that you're not going to commit that sin ever again, that is required and Tober. And so Tober is to feel that remorse, right? It is to absolutes to stop committing that sin. Which also means that if the sin involves somebody else, that you have to you have to make it right with them. You have to make it right. That's a part of stopping. Right. And then the last thing is that you have firm determination not to go back to that sin. So soba is an action of the,

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

of the heart.

00:37:15--> 00:37:19

Toward was an action of the heart is still far is dua

00:37:21--> 00:37:31

seeking forgiveness which is an action of its own. And a person may seek forgiveness from Allah Subhana Allah feeling bad about the sin they've committed, but not feeling strong enough to leave off the sin.

00:37:33--> 00:37:34

So they haven't made Toba.

00:37:35--> 00:37:43

Understand difference. person might feel bad, they might be addicted to something. Right? They feel bad about it, and they're not ready to give it up.

00:37:45--> 00:37:50

I can still ask Allah azza wa jal for forgiveness and Allah azza wa jal may forgive them. But that's not totally.

00:37:51--> 00:38:19

That's not at all a license. So in the law, you have to were being the ones who consistently turned to him Subhana who was at it, who consistently recognize whatever since they have committed and who consistently make that firm determination not to go back to committing that sin again, where you hit boo, and multiple hitting those who purify themselves. And so there's a relationship between repentance and purification.

00:38:21--> 00:38:26

Where he links repentance with purity, and the statement of the Prophet SAW Allah

00:38:31--> 00:38:38

O Allah, make me among those who turn to you and repentance and make me among those who are purified

00:38:40--> 00:38:52

where he where he prescribed for us to supplicate to be among the cleansed and among the repentant one so when does somebody when is somebody supposed to say Allama Gianni minutes of living was only meant to point at

00:38:55--> 00:38:57

after will do take you write this down? I'm gonna

00:38:59--> 00:39:01

write it down I'm other than Tom Well the last time and

00:39:03--> 00:39:07

he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam said ma'am increment i had the answer

00:39:08--> 00:39:14

for us we all will do there is not one of you who performs will do thoroughly okay.

00:39:15--> 00:39:26

And then says shadow Allah in ayatullah right is now a shadow and let you know he'll Allah whack the hula surely you gotta watch huddle under Mohammed and Abu rasuluh

00:39:27--> 00:39:28


00:39:30--> 00:39:34

what did I just read it back to him? I want to talk about your loved one who said

00:39:36--> 00:39:42

that the prophesy Salam said what is not one of you, whoever of you performs will do

00:39:44--> 00:39:57

any kind of will do thoroughly perform your will do thoroughly write and then says what? Shadow law labor law Shawanda Muhammad and I have the who

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

what are pseudo who

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

In footie, Hatzalah whoever level janitor Thurman here

00:40:04--> 00:40:17

you have heard him and he has shut except that the eight gates of Jannah are open for him. He may enter from whichever one he likes it Tirmidhi this hadith is a Muslim.

00:40:18--> 00:40:22

I didn't say Muslim. It tells me the added after the shahada shadowing,

00:40:24--> 00:41:05

shadowing that Muhammad and I do. Why do we actually get our shadow under Mohammed Abdullah solo, he added a llama giant even until webbing, which I need min and Matata hitting. However, many of the scholars of Hadith say that this, this edition is not authentic. That edition is not authentic. So I just wanted to bring awareness to that. And if a person says that do it every once in a while, that's not a problem at all. There's no issue with that. Why? Because Allah Azza he loves those people. So you want to be front of people whom Allah Subhana Allah loves. In fact, we did a whole 10 weeks on one dua

00:41:06--> 00:41:19

the image of explain what was at the end of that dua Allama NASL, go hug back. Or Allah asked ask you what for your love will have by men you handbook and to love those who whom you love.

00:41:20--> 00:41:43

Wish? Well, I'm telling you believe me, hug back and to guide me to actions that allow me to reach your love. Right? Allow me to acquire your love. And so from amongst those actions is what Toba en Sahara so asking Allah Allah Medina even until wellbeing, which I don't even know multiple Haiti so beautiful.

00:41:44--> 00:42:26

It's just in terms of it being related to this specific time after will do this hadith and Allah Subhana Allah knows best is not authentic. Clear. All right. Hamdulillah. So can you say that do I? Sometimes yes, just don't, don't tie it directly to will do. And after will do you should make sure that you say every single time spend like how many? How many times have we missed out on this reminds me of the Hadith. Whenever Oh, my God, a lot of China and who on the Allahu Anhu when I heard about the reward for praying that Janessa right. There's a Pirot for light, which is like the amount of words the reward for praying to Jeanette, and if you don't want all the time, and I hadn't

00:42:26--> 00:42:49

heard that hadith before. And so he went and he checked and he verified and then he said how many key lights have we missed? Right? How many times have we missed the prophesy Salam is just saying here just say it's had on late night Allah why the who last rica shadow No, Mohammed and Abdullah SUTA. After every time you make will do if you say that the eight gates of gender are open for you, you can answer from anyone, any of them you want.

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


00:42:54--> 00:43:05

yes, Allah therefore perfected for his believing degree in layers of purity and servitude to him inwardly and outwardly at every strata.

00:43:06--> 00:43:36

Bearing witness that there is no ILA worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is his messenger purifies from disbelief and policies. Okay, so here number one, look at the levels of purification through we'll do and the thicket after we'll do through we'll do an addict after we'll do so when you say shadow Allah Illallah why the hula shed? That is what that is taharah that's purifying you from confidential.

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


00:43:40--> 00:43:58

yeah, turning to him in repentance purifies him from sin. So so when you're asking Allah Lamas and even to webbing it based on that narration being authentic, then that is a purification itself from from sins, but the window itself, by the way, will do itself purifies from sins,

00:44:00--> 00:44:14

causes the sentence to fall off now. And using water in lieu purifies him from visible, right, any physical, physical, tangible filth, is removed, through will do play keep going with

00:44:15--> 00:44:59

1.9, perfecting one's servitude in attending the Masjid. So, you see, having a claim is going in order, right? Because normally a person is going to make will do before they go to before they go to the masjid. That's the normal practice. Now, in particular, Allah prescribed that his be in the most perfect level of purity will do prior to entering upon him and then before him into law, as only then he does, as only then does he exalted big grant permission for his heart to stay in his presence, after he has become pure both from the from the outside and the inside. Thus signifying that he

00:45:00--> 00:45:42

is not a rebellious. Okay, so Immanuel Kant was laying this out in terms of using the language that would be used for an actual slave. So you have the slave that is fine, like, you know, lives amongst the family and serves and serves the master. And then you have the runaway slave fugitive. Right? And so what he's saying here is that the one who purifies himself inside out, preparing himself for the salon is make a signifying to himself first and signifying to Allah Subhana Allah, I'm not I'm not rebellious, I'm preparing myself to be in your presence right now.

00:45:44--> 00:46:26

And when he enters his house, I eat the rest is the place where he like Subhan Allah let me just I just the only way this is going to work. The only way this is gonna work, is you really got to feel this stuff, you got to make yourself think about that. Don't like put it in your mind right now that the next time you make will do you're thinking of yourself as a as a fugitive slave coming back. Alright, I gotta come I gotta get back. Right? That's you getting that train ticket, you're going back down south. You went through the Underground Railroad. And you said I'm going back. Okay. So literally, it's like, I'm going to make this will do. I'm going to make this will do. This is me

00:46:26--> 00:46:42

purifying myself so that I can prepare whatever else I was doing whatever, heedlessness or negligence or indifference or whatever was going on, or less to the side, I'm getting myself prepared, stand in front of a lawsuit.

00:46:43--> 00:46:48

Oftentimes, because we'll do as a ritual and it's not a bad thing, by the way we're talking about.

00:46:49--> 00:46:58

It's not a bad thing that you become accustomed to a bad fact that's a good thing. It's a good thing that you say on your tongue. Like if you just sat down, he just says

00:47:01--> 00:47:13

and he wasn't even thinking about what you were saying, is that better or being silent is better? That's better. Because eventually you know what's gonna happen? What you saying on its own will have an impact on your heart. Eventually.

00:47:14--> 00:47:17

It's better for your heart and your tongue to be in harmony.

00:47:19--> 00:47:55

But remembering Allah azza wa jal was better than than not remembering Him. And so making will do even if it's just ritual, right? Even if it's just something you're not really thinking about. That's still better than than what than its opposite which we not to make will do. But I'm saying let's try to take this to another level and seek Eliza Eliza Joe's aid in that right which is the always asking Allah at the end of every salon Allahu Allah and Allah who are in the critical was shook Rico was in the bed, it was in the bed, right? You want to get to that level of saying, You're a bed. That level of sand requires that your heart is present. She's thinking about what you're

00:47:55--> 00:47:56


00:47:57--> 00:48:47

And when he enters his house, domestic, the place where he even says evinces his server to Allah, he becomes one of his slaves. This explains the reason why attending the masjid to pray. The compulsory is a lot of cutting congregation, with some scholars consider obligatory to do, and others consider highly recommendable to do is dealing from the aspects of perfection of the one servitude to Allah. The example of a heatless person is like a rebelling is this obeying His mascot, a fugitive slave that ran away? Yeah, he seizes the boat, his limbs and heart at the service of his master, which is the sole purpose for which he is created. But as soon as he comes back to his master, he effectively

00:48:47--> 00:48:55

nullify nullifies his state of disobedience, and restores the state of obedience. And when he stands before Him in humility, and

00:48:56--> 00:49:47

the compassion and the compassion and kindness of his master, overwhelmed and in golf Him and accept Him after having rejected rejected him before, like, play, so here, the author brought him over lo Tana. He's talking about why it's so important to pray the Father Salah in congregation, right? Because it he mentioned that some scholars considered obligatory and others consider it commendable. And we're gonna talk about that in just a second shallow to Anna. But it's, it's from the as he says, is deemed from the aspects of perfection of one's servitude to Allah. And that is because you actually have to go somewhere, right? So now it's not just the Sahara and preparation, but it's

00:49:47--> 00:49:59

like, I'm going to leave this place. My home or whatever place I was comfortable and I'm going to go somewhere for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala, which is different than just standing up and

00:50:00--> 00:50:03

Everybody feels that everybody feels that

00:50:04--> 00:50:12

which is why I mean you'll you'll find, for example, that there's some where's it better for women a woman to pray buy a house? Or domestic

00:50:14--> 00:50:17

photography? Where is it better for a woman to pray in a house in a mansion?

00:50:20--> 00:50:21

Tobon Allahu Allah

00:50:25--> 00:50:42

in our house if she's able, by, okay, do you remember the front row here? Right? Front row, what a mess is it better to pray in the front row to second row, front row, what it was 10 people in the front row you did a whole time like this the whole time.

00:50:44--> 00:50:51

You were rather benign as to what you were rather that I said was better second world or first row, first row

00:50:54--> 00:51:12

mashallah, there is a principle that will help you understand, hope you and you better than shallow data. That is that the virtue that is directly related to the bad itself takes precedence over where the bad is performed.

00:51:13--> 00:51:17

So, if in the second row, you can actually

00:51:18--> 00:51:29

have some some space whereby your thoughts are on the salon and not on being crushed, then it's better for you to pray in a second row.

00:51:30--> 00:51:34

All right. Now, this is important, isn't it important to understand?

00:51:35--> 00:51:41

Don't however, don't let that get you to the point where Oh, if I go to the masjid

00:51:43--> 00:52:04

I'm not as comfortable as I am in the house. So I'm gonna go ahead and pray and I don't know let's say that I play with you like that. But in the masjid itself, the different thing so now let's but let's go a step further. So it is better for a woman to pray in her home is no doubt about that, from the Sunnah of the Prophet Isaiah silabs was sitting, who mentioned that the best prayer for the woman is in her home.

00:52:05--> 00:52:06


00:52:08--> 00:52:55

and many of the alumni have talked about tolerably specifically. But even for other Salawat. If praying in her home, does not allow her to achieve a certain level of short for whatever reason that may be maybe her ability to recite the Quran is not strong at all. And she feels a lot more comfortable being in the message she she's able to feel her salon, then it's better for her. At that, if that's the case, it's better for her to pray in the masjid. Obviously, there's other logistical circumstances that will determine that the reality of that or whatever, but my my point in mentioning this was that sometimes people get very focused on the where, and not the how, of the

00:52:55--> 00:53:01

salon. The how is is more important than the where now here.

00:53:02--> 00:53:26

And obviously, he's a general statement. So since we don't have a lot of time left, I want you to write down the evidence so it'll kind of like him to lie lay. He says that some scholars hold hold praying in July to be obligatory while others hold it to be commendable Jeremiah in the messages, he holds the opinion, that Celox of Jamara in the masjid is an obligation upon the men.

00:53:27--> 00:53:35

It is an obligation upon men. And from the evidence that he mentions in another book of his I will mention to you now shallow time

00:53:36--> 00:54:20

is the statement of a loss for how to Anna be the queen to feed him. Welcome Taylor who musalla filter content if it's a min HOMAG while you're asleep at home with us I didn't want to take your time. Let me just fall over you so go back to the end of the I saw it in the set. I want to talk to Eliza Justin says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam if you are amongst them right in the salon for come to the homeless Salah and you establish the prayer for them. Let one group of them pray with you. Okay, so this is talking about obviously during the time of war and the end of time of battle. Let one group of them pray with you while armed. Okay, so keep keep your arms

00:54:21--> 00:54:36

and when they prostrate themselves at the other group stand guard behind them. And then the group that hasn't prayed yet will then join you in prayer. Let them be vigilant and let them keep their arms as well. Alright, so when is this happening?

00:54:38--> 00:54:39

And war.

00:54:41--> 00:54:59

How does this shoulder salon GEMA is an obligation even among their Rahimullah talent one of the great early scholars over snap he said in his book called L suck for me Allah Hebei commented geomatics if he hadn't have the lead on Anna Anna Danika for you hand me a job. He said

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

It Allah azza wa jal commanding them to pray in Jamaat, even at the time of fear, they call us a lot of hope. Right? Even at the time of fear, they have to pray and Jamar, he says, that shows that is clear evidence that it is even more of an obligation at times of security.

00:55:25--> 00:55:25

All right.

00:55:26--> 00:55:27

All right.

00:55:29--> 00:55:49

Other I have from here I'm just gonna mention three since we don't have a lot of time. The prophet Isaiah Salatu was Salam. So already enough CVAD McClenaghan m two and M will be happening. Your thoughts will be solid for you as in law, from the AMA module and for your own oneness. He said by the woman whose hands my soul, I considered.

00:55:51--> 00:56:17

Having somebody bring me would, okay, and then lighting that wood on fire, and then I will command that the Selectmen established, I think that the exam would be called, and then I would tell somebody else to leave the salon. And then I would go to the Jilin to people, right people's homes for adults who, and set their houses on fire, who said there

00:56:19--> 00:56:36

are the prophesy Salam, or hamanasi bidness the one who was the Most Merciful of the people to the people. Elijah was a mouse and neck Illa Rahmatullah anime, Max central accept this a mercy to the creation. There's the one who said that.

00:56:37--> 00:56:39

Well, let enough severely low

00:56:40--> 00:56:48

in the whole Yeji do out of concern Meenan or mid Mitanni has an attaining a che that Aisha right. So

00:56:49--> 00:57:30

he's, he's saying that by the woman whose hands my soul if one of them knew that they will find some material benefit here and the message that they would have, they would have come, they would have come and Salatin Orisha obviously the prophets alive some of the night do it. But the point here that the scholars mentioned is that a son and he said back into law they Hadith a lien on Allah who will Giamatti Anan lackey fine, this hadith clearly shows that it's an obligation an individual obligation upon him and not a communal obligation. Because some of the scholars say no, it's just select has to be established. So as long as some body goes to the masjid and some people break, then

00:57:30--> 00:57:45
