Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh who
are the bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah al Karim rubbish Friday Saudi were silly, Emery wash Little Rock data melissani of Kahu Kali Allahumma. The combi was suddenly sunny wetsuit schemata Colby Amin uribl al Amin, in sha Allah today we will be covering daraz in Salah. Meaning all of those prayers which we say while we perform salah. What do these doors mean? Why do we say them? What is their significance? Remember that the main objective of Salah the main reason why we pray Salah is to remember Allah or zoologia Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, we're Hakim is salata levy Cree, he said to Musa alayhis salam
that established Salah for my remembrance, meaning in one's life, throughout the day, a person turns towards Allah in order to remember him. And yes, we remember Allah subhanaw taala throughout the day, but five times a day, in a formal way through ritual worship, we remember Allah, we remember his greatness, his perfection, the fact that he alone is the creator, the owner Sustainer that he alone is worthy of worship. And Salah has been obligated so that we are able to maintain these feelings throughout the day. Everything in the universe glorifies Allah subhanaw taala we learned about the angels, that they glorify Allah constantly in the night in the day and they do not slack
and so we should also declare the perfection of Allah We should remember his greatness and praise Him and the best way to do that is in Salah. Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, that lackey Neil Rossi Hona filler ilmi Lachenal Rossi Hoonah filler Elmy min home well mock me No no, you may not want to be my own ZTE Laker warmer on Zillow I'm in public, while movimiento Salah while most tuna Zakka while me no Nabila, he will yo mil F here, hula ecocentric de him Edgerunner Alima. But those firm in knowledge among them, and the believers believe in what has been revealed to you and what was revealed before you and the establishes of prayer especially, and the givers of the care
and the believers in Allah and the Last Day, those we will give a great reward.
We see over here that Salah is one of those deeds for which Allah subhanaw taala has promised a great reward. It is no ordinary action, it is not something you do only when you are free, or when you have nothing else to do. No, it is an excellent the best form of worship. And in this ayah Allah subhanaw taala tells us about the virtue of those who have knowledge of us who are gonna fit in and the virtue of those who believe those who do righteous deeds. You see Rossi Hoon means those who are firmly rooted is sheduled or a tree that is Rasika is a tree that is firmly rooted, that does not get uprooted by winds or or storms. So the people who are deeply rooted in knowledge, it doesn't
mean that they are perfect or complete in it because there is no limit to rather they are firm in what they know how, first of all, it is because they believe in what was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam their firm in their knowledge because they believe in the truth. They have beneficial knowledge they have knowledge of the truth and they do not follow. They do not blindly follow the trends of the people of the world. They follow evidence. So they have knowledge that is free of any doubt and knowledge that is rooted firmly rooted in their minds in their hearts. And then with this knowledge there is also a there's a
to action, because Allah subhanaw taala mentions one more creaminess, Aleta will will move to another cow, they establish Salah and gives a cow. So, this is firmness in knowledge that a person believes that a person has knowledge of the truth. A person believes in that truth and then a person acts upon it as well. And when a person is firmly rooted in knowledge, then they are protected from deviation. They do not get swayed by their surroundings. And such people Allah subhanaw taala says and D him a Jelena Lima hola Iike any those whose status is very high seno de Him we shall give them a June or Lima, a reward that is ever great, any, this is a promise of Allah. And there is no doubt
about the promises that Allah subhanaw taala makes. Now remember that there is a deep relationship between Eman and Amal Salah between knowledge, faith and righteous action. Because when a person has knowledge of the truth, and a person understands it and believes in it, then what happens is that their knowledge leads to Iman and Eman. Their faith leads to action. And then action in return strengthens their faith. So it is not enough that a person says that I believe and that's sufficient with Amen. We must strengthen both sides. We need to strengthen our knowledge. And we also need to strengthen our actions because both of these preserve and strengthen your Eman and Eman remember it
is the most valuable blessing that a person has it is more precious than their car, their house, their bank account, everything that they own. Amen is more important. And in order to preserve our iman our faith, we need both things, knowledge and action. And I hope in sha Allah through the sessions. You are increasing in your knowledge you are remembering things that you maybe knew before but had forgotten and I hope in sha Allah through the sessions you are also encouraged to increase in your
in your actions. Now we learn that when it comes to Salah it is also called Iman in the Quran Allah subhanaw taala says women can Allah Who Lilia II manacle Allah will not waste your faith and what is meant by faith over there is your Salah and Salah is is something very very essential to one's Iman meaning if a person does not press a well then they're Eman is questionable. And Salah is you know an act of worship that includes not only your intention, any you you intend to worship Allah in your Salah, but there's also certain words that you have to recite and there are some actions that you have to perform and when it comes to performing Salah it is not enough to just do Salah any it's not
enough to just go and say that okay, I am done my salah. No we see in this ayah well mu p meanness Allah, those who established Salah and to establish Salah is to perform Salah properly correctly, while fulfilling all of the conditions observing all of the pillars meeting all of the essentials of Salah, the obligatory actions of Salah and then perfecting the Salah with the recommended deeds as well. And even our best sort of the long run who said that iqama to Salah is to properly perform the record and the Sajida any if you are properly performing Salah that means you are making your ruku or your Sajida properly. You're not rushing through it. And iqama to Salah is that you recite Quran
and you observe your Salah with her sure with humility with attentiveness. And Qatada said that economista Salah is to guard the times of Salah I need to make sure that you're performing Salah at the right time and you are making the record and the sujood properly in Salah you're not rushing through them you're not speeding through them. And we see that both salah and the cat are excellent acts of worship and both of them require sincerity on our part and excellence in the way that we perform them. Now when it comes to Salah, remember that Salah linguistically means to pray.
And technically Salah is an act of worship that is performed by sayings
certain words and performing certain actions and Salah begins with duck bead and it ends with the slim, meaning it begins when you say Allahu Akbar, and it ends when you say a cinema aleikum wa rahmatullah.
Remember that the ultimate goal of our lives is to worship Allah subhanaw taala. That is the reason why He created us. Well, my follicle Gina will insert in earlier videos, I did not create jinn and men except so that they should worship Me. So out of all the things that are important in your life, remember that what is of utmost important what is at the top of the list is what it is Salah, Salah is the purpose of our lives, literally. So if in a day, you're not able to, for example, finish an assignment, you're not able to get your chores done, you're not able to, you know, prepare any food for yourself. You're not able to accomplish anything on your to do list, but you are able to perform
the five daily prayers, then you have fulfilled the purpose of your life for that day.
This doesn't mean that other things are not important they are but Salah is more important than any other thing that you can busy yourself with. Because it is the purpose of our lives it fulfills the purpose of our lives which is to worship Allah. And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked that which deed is the most beloved to Allah, a humble Illa Allah, He said a Salah to allow bacteria performing Salah at its proper time. When a person
becomes a Muslim, then the first thing that they learn is to perform Salah it's the first and foremost act of worship. When children are taught to worship Allah the first thing they're taught is to praise Allah. Salah comes before fasting, it comes before Hajj, and other acts of worship. We see that all of the prophets of Allah performed salah, Musa alayhis salam and one of the first things he was told by Allah was working with salata lyrically established Salah for my remembrance, Ibraheem Alehissalaam Medora Robbie Jeronimo key masala Oh my Lord make me someone who establishes Salah we see that Ibrahim alayhi salam left his son is married in the middle of the desert. Basically why we
learned in the Quran, Leo Kimo salah, in order that they established Salah and he this is the reason why he left his family in Maccha so that they worship Allah they perform Salah rissalah has Salam when he was a baby and he spoke in defense of his mother. He mentioned that what URL animal belacan Aina makan to what oh Sonny the salah he was the cat tema due to higher that Allah has commanded me to praise Allah and gives a cat for as long as I am alive. Madame Ali has set up their Aveda, the worshiper she was told, yeah, Maria makuuchi lira beaky was Judy worker in Morocco theory that oh Maria, be devoutly obedient to Your Lord and make Sajida and make Bluecore any worship Allah through
performing Salah Look, man, the wise advised his son that ye buena yo Akima salah, oh my son established Salah Allah subhanaw taala commands as slaves to perform Salah paleri Birdie Alladhina amanu Yuki masala and it is a sign of sincere believers that they establish Salah, Salah is the second pillar of Islam. And we learned that Allah subhanaw taala has obligated five Salawat on people during the day in the night and the person who fulfills them and he performs them properly and is not negligent about them. Then on the Day of Judgment, he will have a covenant with Allah that Allah will admit him into Jannah but the person who is any he neglects his salah. Then such a
person will not have such a covenant with Allah. It is up to Allah. If Allah once Allah can punish that person and if Allah wants he can forgive that person.
You see, two times a day, Allah subhanaw taala asks his angels about our salah, because angels come and attend to us he they observe our actions, they record our deeds and there's two shifts of angels. And as the shift changes, they return to Allah and Allah subhanaw taala asks them that how did you find my slaves and how did you leave my slaves? So if a person is or those who perform salah the angels reply that
When we left them, they were praying and when we reached them, they were praying. How beautiful. So remember there is no religiosity in a person, if they do not pray salah, sometimes we try to belittle the importance of Salah by saying, Oh, I don't pray, but I'm very respectful and I am very honest, and I am nice to my family. I am, you know, very decent in the way that I talk and my faith is in my heart. Excellent. All of that is great. Or some people say that, you know, I wear the hijab, I wear the niqab, I look after my parents, but when it comes to Salah, I'm not that consistent. No, the real religiosity, the real piety in a person is that they are loyal to Allah and
that they fulfill the purpose of their existence by worshipping Allah. And what is worship, that Allah subhanaw taala wants from us that Allah subhanaw taala has obligated on us. It is Salah, the five daily prayers and remember that it is Salah that differentiates between Islam and COVID between Islam and disbelief and we are commanded to not just perform salah but also to guard our Salah Have you low or no sweat away and we are commanded that we pray Salah ourselves and we also remind our family members to perform Salah and to not be lazy in regard to our Salah and not be lazy in telling our families to pray. Allah subhanaw taala says what more Elijah Bisola it was a bit earlier that
instruct your family to pray Salah and be steadfast there in be steadfast in what be steadfast and performing Salah yourself and also be steadfast in telling your family to pray.
And children are supposed to pray after eight seven so don't be lazy in teaching your children how to pray and in reminding them to pray Salah and Salah is so important that people are required to press a lot even in in the thick of battle. And at the time of the gel also, we learn that Salah will still be obligated and the believers will praise Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He taught us about the importance of Salah and he emphasized it so much that his last words his last words before he departed from the world were what in regard to Salah he said a Salah of Salah, warmer Malacca a monocle any be mindful of your Salah, guard your Salah, guard your Salah,
and be conscious of Allah in regard to that which your hands possess meaning if the fear Allah in regard to your slaves, and remember that the first question that we will be asked on the Day of Judgment is regarding our salah. This is how hisab will begin. So if a person passes the test of Salah, then the rest of the hisab will also be easy. But if they get stuck over there, then everything else will be difficult. And this is why we are told called the EF Lohan movement on AlLadhina houfy salatu him Koshu Salah brings success and Salah doesn't just bring a person success in the hereafter in this world also, it is a source of mercy. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
salam. He said that when one of you stands in prayer, then the Mercy of Allah is before him. Allah subhanaw taala says we'll have chemo salata will add to the cattle were ugly or Rasul. Lila come to heaven in order that you may receive mercy and how often it happens that you know in the day we are struggling, we are struggling with you know, illness or fatigue or work or worry stress. And the way to find relief is by performing Salah and through salah. We get sustenance from Allah Salah removes poverty and dependency on people when a person performs Salah than they receive the doors of the angels also. Allah subhanaw taala brings them out of their worry and their fear. Allah subhanaw
taala helps those who praise Allah, Allah subhanaw taala guards and protect those people who praise Allah. Allah subhanaw taala heals them, ignore him say that remembering Allah and turning towards him and eagerly praying Salah is something because of which many who were ill have been cured and have been granted safety and well being any because of Salah our illness goes away an illness is not just physical illness. It includes spiritual illness.
Any the doubts that we may have or or the desires that constantly distract us, burden us because of that because of Salah we are healed, our sins are erased, our sins are washed off, and a person is guarded against indecent and immoral actions because of salah. Because think about it if a person has to pray five times a day, with attentiveness, and with awareness any they are aware of what they're saying, then how can they indulge in indecent and immoral actions between two prayers? So Salah breaks bad habits also, in a hadith we learn that the Prophet sallallahu Erusean was asked regarding a man who no prayers but then he goes and commits theft. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam said that if he is as you have said, meaning he prays, then his Salah will will stop him eventually, any Salah destroys bad habits and Salah brings real joy and happiness to a person. It brings a person comfort, which is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that what do you look forward to or any fees for Salah that the coolness of the eye has been the coolness of my eye has been placed in Salah meaning I find comfort and happiness in Salah. And we learned that it will pay him said that the person whose eyes are cooled through Salaam in the world than in the Hereafter they will be cold by closeness to Allah subhanaw taala any if Salah brings you relief and
happiness in this world, then yes, on the Day of Judgment, you will find happiness and relief and comfort and all of the good feelings by being close to Allah subhanaw taala Because salah allows you to experience closeness to Allah, because in Salah you're not allowed to talk to anyone. In fact, you should not even be thinking about anything, the entire focus should be on who Allah subhanaw taala so when you strengthen that bond, then imagine on the Day of Judgment, a person will find real joy and happiness in in being close to Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment, the limbs of the people who pray Salah will glow and he they will be shining. This will be their distinctive mark.
And so, on the Day of Judgment Salah will be as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said No Ron guber Han and when a jaton young well together, it will be a light and a salvation for a person on the day of judgment. And it will be a protection against Hellfire for a person in the hereafter. On the other hand, if a person isn't, you know, if they neglect salah, then this is extremely dangerous, because it leads a person to Cofer to disbelief and to shake and it deprives a person of their faith even was rude would say that the one who leaves prayer has no religion. And Abraham said that there are six things in Salah that are signs of hypocrisy, meaning of a person performs their
Salah with these with these six characteristics then it means that they have hypocrisy in them. What are the six signs they are first of all showing laziness in going towards Salah
Secondly, praying Salah in order to be seen by people so that people are happy that okay, yes, she is someone who prays Allah. Thirdly, delaying in performing Salah any procrastinating, delaying doing everything else before going towards Allah. And then number four, praying very quickly rushing through it. Number five, remembering Allah, very little insula that a person is praying, but they don't remember a lot at all. They're constantly thinking about what they're going to do, what they're going to say what they're going to cook, what they're going to eat, what they're going to do next. And number six, not praying in congregation. All of these are signs of hypocrisy, whether you
are the biller, we also learn that the person who deliberately leaves Salah loses the protection of Allah. He such a person is not in Allah's protection and the one who loses one salah, then it is as if he has lost his property and his family. May Allah protect us. If you've ever heard of situations where you know, for example, people have lost their homes to a fire and if there is some damage to not only property but you know, we hear in the news about how children died in the fire. The entire family died in the fire. So imagine what a huge loss this is. Losing one soul
Ah is greater than that loss. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us. And we learn from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the one who leaves the US sort of prayer, then his actions are wasted. And the aroma said that this is about the one who delays that also prayer without a genuine reason. Such as procrastination, laziness, any they're just delaying, delaying, delaying, and then they end up missing it, then all of their actions are wasted, real loss penalty to protect us. Another thing is that in the Quran, we learn that the people who do not pray, then their death is very, very painful. Any death is painful anyway. For those who are righteous and also those who are
not righteous, but it is especially hard for the person who does not praise Allah. Because Allah subhanaw taala tells us we'll definitely circle B cell and the leg is wound about the leg. Ila Rebecca young may even kill myself to your Lord that day will be the procession. Folau sadaqa well salah, and he neither believed nor had he prayed, meaning this person who was dying, whose leg is joining with his other leg because life is leaving his body, then this person, he neither believe nor did he pray, well, I can cut the butt with a welder but instead he denied and he turned away. And we learn that the person who does not pray, then they will be with our own and fit our own and
have an and obey you will have any be enemies of Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us. So we should pray to Allah that he or Allah made me someone who establishes salah, make my children, those who established salon and we should also
think about what we are saying in salon because when we know what we are saying, we are able to focus better and then we're able to enjoy our salah, and then we can be consistent with our Salah. So in sha Allah in today's short session, we're going to go over the meaning of some of the doors that we are supposed to say in Salah.
Now remember that Salah begins with the Kabira to Iran, and he would saying Allahu Akbar, and it is called that beautiful haram because everything that was permissible before saying it becomes impermissible after seeing it. So for example, a person is allowed to eat and drink and talk to people look here and there, go in and out, walk around, et cetera, these are all permissible acts, but once you say Allahu Akbar and you begin salah, then you cannot eat, you cannot drink, you cannot talk to people, you cannot even look here and there. You cannot, you know, go out of the room and come back. No, all of those things become forbidden. So this is the Kabira tool
and saying Allahu Akbar took me out of the house. This is a pillar of Salah without which there is no salah, and without it Salah does not begin any if you don't say Allahu Akbar properly correctly, your Salah does not begin to enter Salah you have to say Allahu Akbar. And you say Allahu Akbar, many times in Salah and we see that the COVID is connected to Salah in every way. Any before Salah there is again and then then there's the COVID Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, right. And then after then there is a coma in a coma. Also there is the COVID When you begin salah, you begin with Allahu Akbar. And then every time you move from one step of Salah to the next, again, you say Allahu Akbar,
in every transition, except for when you're getting up from record. So that we remember is a symbol of Salah, the Shirat of Salah, just as there will be an issue out of Hajj, when people go for Hajj, what is it that they say constantly loveawake Allah Humala, Baik, right? And in Salah, what is it that we say constantly, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
So the secret of Salah is what it is, there are leam of Allah ne it is to glorify and praise Allah to magnify Him, to show his to express his greatness. Even hedger said that the bead is a vehicle, which is said at a time of shock at a time of surprise and fear. So for example, in this era, we see that at many occasions, when some news fearful, you know, frightening news was given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He's
said Allahu Akbar. So you say Allahu Akbar, at a time of shock.
And also you say Allahu Akbar, at the time of happiness. Like for example, on the day of read,
in order to show gratitude to Allah. And you say Allahu Akbar at a time off fear. Why? Because you remind yourself that Allah is greater, greater than what then this problem that has come my way that Allah is capable of helping me. So that bead is a vicar and it is not only glorification of Allah, it is also a form of showing gratitude to Allah. Allahu Akbar means Allah is the Greatest. So the person praying salah, says it in Salah in order to declare that Allah is greater than anything else that I could be doing right now.
Allah is greater than the essay that I was just typing. That is why I left it and I came and I started praying, Allah is greater than the food that I was cooking. Alright, big and that is why I left it and I came to Salah and in Salah when anything distracts you the food or the essay or what people are saying, then you say Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater than anything that could distract me, or that could hinder me from salah. And when a person continues to say, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, in Salah, then this saves a person from two major disasters, and what are these major disasters? First of all, the Cabal, pride, arrogance, because we think I am great, I am able to do this, I can
do this, I can do that. Allahu Akbar reminds you Allah is greater than you. Allah is greater than me. Right? So it saves you from arrogance, and secondly, saying Allahu Akbar also protects you from turning towards someone other than Allah. Because when you keep declaring Allah is greater Allah is greater than Allah is greater than anything that I love. Allah is greater than anyone whom I love. Allah is greater than anyone who might fear. Anything that I am concerned about Allah is greater, he is more worthy of my attention. He is more worthy that I talk to him, that I glorify Him, that I converse with him. So Allahu Akbar is a is a protection. And there is even or the salam says about
the wisdom of the community in Salah, because you have to sit back read again and again in Salah. He says that the purpose of Salah is to remember Allah.
And in order to do that, it is necessary to know the greatness of the one you are remembering. And he if you're supposed to remember Allah in Salah, while Who is Allah, you have to know his Greatness. You have to keep that greatness in mind in order to show proper other throughout the salah. Because, sadly, you know, when people are praying, sometimes they are looking here and there they are, you know, not moving their lips, they're not saying anything, or they have the audacity to stand in prayer without will do.
And that is because they don't recognize the greatness of the one whom they are remembering. Salah begins with the bead, which proves the greatness of Allah so that a person knows who knows the one he is standing before and the one that he is sitting before into shadowed and making record and such therefore. So when you remember the Majesty of Allah, the greatness of Allah by saying Allahu Akbar, in Salah, then you're able to show obedience and proper humility, then you will observe proper Adam and you will ensure that you have purification, both external and internal, and only then you can focus on your conversation with Allah. So when you say Allahu Akbar, it means that you're leaving
everything behind. Because when you say Allahu Akbar, you also raise your hands, right? You also raise your hands, and when you raise your hands, what are you doing? You're basically throwing behind yourself, everything else, everyone else, you are focusing entirely on Allah subhanaw taala. So when you say Allahu Akbar, Allah is the Greatest and you say it.
Well you mean it. Then you will have humility and proper etiquette, proper adult in Salah and the person who stands properly before Allah in Salah. They will be able to stand properly on the Day of Judgment also
When we say Allahu Akbar, and begin salah, after that, we place our hands on the chest, and our eyes should be looking straight on the place of the such depth of prostration we should not be looking right we should not be looking left, we should not be looking at our hands, or our toes, or our clothes. No, we should be looking at the place of such them. And we stand in prayer. And then we begin the doors of Stifter we begin glorification and praise of Allah, and we seek forgiveness from Allah. And with regards to dr. oz of SF TA, ignore him says that the secret of Salah and its essence is that a person is
attentive towards his Lord. And he that's that's the main goal of Salah that you are paying attention to Allah subhanaw taala and only Allah and you are making your heart present before Allah, that you're not allowing your heart to get distracted. This is the entire struggle in Salah. Right? That you want to make sure your heart is fully attentive, only attentive to Allah subhanaw taala.
And he says that in Salah, the slave is similar to the condition of a person who goes towards the door of a king in order to meet the king.
So before this meeting, this person needs forgiveness for his sins and he needs to ask for the generosity of the king and for sustenance, in order to have the strength to meet the king.
And when he reaches the door of the king, then there remains nothing other than conversation with the king. So this is why before we
recite Surah Fatiha, which is basically a conversation with Allah. Before that, what do we do? We ask Allah for forgiveness, and we praise and glorify Allah. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to shower His blessings on us. How do we do that? Though? We say the doors of a sifter. And there are several doors of Stifter one of them is Allahu Akbar Kabira. Well, Hamdulillah he cathedra was Subhan Allah He booklet on what a sailor Allah is the Greatest, the Most Great, Praise be to Allah abundantly. Glory is to Allah at the break of day and its end at the beginning of the day. And in the evening. You have been remodeled the Longhorn who reported that while they were praying with the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a man said these words and after salah the prophets of Allah who already said I'm asked who said these words, and a person said that it is I, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that it amazed me because the doors of the sky were opened up for these words. So even Ermelo de la Mourinho said that I have not left these words since I heard the Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm saying that. So we should also say these words when we begin Salla Allahu Akbar Kabira will handle the law he can feel what Subhan Allah He bukata was leader. And you see in this also, we are declaring the greatness of Allah. Because when we declare the
greatness of Allah along with his praise, and while showing gratitude to Allah, then this brings contentment to the heart. When we declare Allah's greatness, we find ease, our problems are solved, our worries are removed, our sorrow is dispelled when we declare the greatness of Allah, this strengthens our iman, when we glorify and praise Allah, this opens the doors of goodness for us.
And especially, you see in this dua we say book Ratangarh sila in the morning and in the evening, meaning I declare Allah's greatness His praises glory in the morning and in the evening. Why in the morning, and in the evening, because this is when the angels give the report of our Salah to Allah subhanaw taala in the morning and in the evening. Another though we can say, when we begin salah, Allahumma buried benei ouabain A Hatha Yoga, come about I intervene and mushed if you will McRib Allahumma pinnae Minar Hatha Yoga coma unocha thornbill availble Mina Denis, Allahu Mozilla Hatha Yoga Bill, you were third you will borrowed me, or Allah, set me apart from my sins as far as the
east and the west are set apart from each other. The first thing we're asking Allah subhanaw taala for is that oh Allah created a distance between me and my sins, what kind of a distance a distance like that between the East and the West? Because this distance is such that it can it can never be eliminated in the sense that the east and the west can now
ever be joined together? Right? So you're asking Allah to create a permanent distance between you and your sins, to take you far away from your sins and to take your sins far away from you. So you're asking Allah subhanaw taala to forgive you for your past and future sins. And you're asking Allah subhanaw taala to keep you away from committing sins in the future, that keep me away from sins, meaning keep me away from sins in my future, protect me from committing sins in my future. Secondly, you're saying that Illumina Penny mineral Hetalia, come at you not Cathar will be Illumina, Dennis, that Oh Allah, clean me from my sins, as a white garment is cleaned of dirt, any
after thorough washing, what happens to a white garment that was stained, the stains are removed, and the garment is completely clean. So you're asking Allah subhanaw taala over here, to remove your sins, and to also remove the effect of sins from you. Any all the things that you've ever committed? You're asking Allah, Allah wash away there, remove their effect, also their impact on me because since do have an impact, so you are asking Allah subhanaw taala to remove your present sins from you, meaning the sins that you're that you're currently committing, and you're not even aware of them. And then thirdly, you're asking a lot along well, Sylvia been Matt, you were eligible, but
that Oh Allah, wash off my sins with water, snow and hail, Allahu Akbar, you're asking Allah to wash away your sins with three things. And think about it. If you're cleaning something, if you're cleaning a garment, and you, you put it through one stain cycle, and then you leave it to soak. And then you wash it again. You know, you wash it, you clean it through multiple rounds of cleaning. Why? Because you want to make sure that it is completely clean, completely clean. So you're asking Allah subhanaw taala to wash away your sins with water, snow and hail three things. Why? So that your sins are completely washed away?
And why is it that you're asking Allah to wash away your sins with something cool, cold like snow and hail, because sins have a heat, a fire and water, hail, snow are cool. And the water of hail and snow and rain is completely pure, right because it is untouched by the hands of people. It is pure and purifying.
remember that when it comes to removing stains, cold water is way better, more effective than hot. And you're also asking Allah subhanaw taala for ease in the removal of sins. You see one is that a person is purified of their sins in the fire of help. And we seek Allah's refuge from that, because we learn that people who believe because of their sins, many will end up in hellfire, and they will be purified of their sins by experiencing the punishment of those sins in hellfire. And then they will be removed from hellfire and admitted into paradise. So we're asking Allah Allah Allah, don't purify me through fire, purify me through water, snow and hail. Because you are able to forgive all
sins. So you're asking Allah for ease in the process of purification, sometimes any leaving a bad habit is very painful. Leaving the sin is painful, any it's hard a person struggles. So you're asking Allah subhanaw taala for ease in the removal of sins from you. And here you're asking Allah subhanaw taala to wash away all of your past sins. So in this Dora you're asking Allah to keep you away from sins in future you're asking Allah to remove your
present sins from you. And you're asking Allah to wash away your past sins as well. What a beautiful Dora it is another though we can make Subhanak Allahumma behenic What the baraka smoke What are you gonna just duck wala Isla haha you look glorious you are Oh ALLAH and with your praise, and bless it is your name exalted is Your Majesty, and none has the right to be worshipped but you and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would begin his Salah with these words. So we should also begin our Salah with these words. Because in these words, we are
glorifying Allah praising him, declaring his, his perfection his his greatness. We also learned that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would wake up for the 100 prayer, then he would recite some other doors in East Iftar as well, and of course, I cannot cover all of them right now, but I will mention one in which we learned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would say, would just do what you hear little lady football, Assa T will up honey for a woman and aminal machete keen, I have turned my face toward Him Who created the heavens and the earth as someone who is unswerving in the worship of Allah alone, and I am not of those who associate partners with Allah in the Salah it when Uzuki
when we're here, Yahweh, Marathi Lillahi Rabbil Alameen lashari Kola will be the liquor omitted to a nominal Muslimeen verily my salah, my sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, the Lord of all that exists, he has no partner. And of this I have been commended, and I am one of the Muslims Allahumma anthelmintic La ilaha illa Anta O Allah, you are the sovereign, there is none worthy of worship, but you uncorrupt be we're an Arab Duke You are my Lord and I am your slave. Gollum tune up see, ya don't have to be them be.

And I turn to you about Dr. Ouattara later. Bless it, are you exalted? Are you a stone Fuuka what a
tubal alayka I seek your forgiveness. And I repent to you what a beautiful door this is. After the war is the FDA we say our own the bIllahi min a che plan as regime we seek refuge with Allah against Trayvon. And we can also say our own bIllahi min ash shaytani R Rajim even Hamza he one of three one of the that I seek refuge in Allah against che plan who is accursed, especially from the hums, the evil suggestions of che pawn, his nuff his puffing up. And this can mean that his puffing me up that I feel arrogant in myself one of the and from his spitting any from his influence on me that he or Allah protect me from the influence of shaitan and then we recite Surah Fatiha and after Surah
Fatiha we recite some portion of the Quran. And then we go into the core we say Allahu Akbar, we go into the core, and the core remember, this is described as a third of summer and record should be performed properly, such that our back is completely straight. And in record, we should also observe stillness, any we should come to a complete stop. You know some people when they're driving and they reach a stop sign. They don't have a they don't make a complete stop. They make a rolling stop. Right? And then what happens they drive off some people don't even bother to stop. Other people make a rolling stop and then they continue driving. And if a police officer sees you doing that what's
going to happen you're going to see consequences because that's not a complete stop. In Salah remember in every position we have to come to a complete stop including record meaning become completely still before getting up from record. And as you are completely still in record, then say the Add car of record and what is it that we can say in record Subhanallah be and Arlene we said Glory be to my lord the ever great and you see when we say words of glorification in record, what are we doing? We are showing three types of humility. First of all, we are showing humility so
through our limbs, that we are not standing up straight, rather we are, you know, bending our bodies, right? We are physically showing humility before Allah subhanaw taala not just by lowering our eyes or lowering our heads, no, we're literally lowering our back. We're bending down. Secondly, we are showing glory, you know, humility before Allah, how? Through our tongue, that we show when we say words of glorification Subhan, Allah BNR Aleem, glory be to my lord the ever greet. So we show glorification to Allah and we show humility in ourselves by bending and then by saying such words and then thirdly, by with terylene in our hearts with respect and reverence and humility in our
And other things that we can say or other other words off, the record that we can say in ReCore are Cebu Han could do some horrible Mala Ekati will rule that Oh Allah, you are the most glorious, the most pure, the Lord of the angels and the spirit meaning Gibreel and some are Allah may say that rule refers to those creatures that are even hidden from the angels Subhanallah any
we can see, sorry angels can see us we cannot see them. Right. But angels they can see us they cannot see rule. So the rhythm I said that rule can be Gibreel and it can also be other creatures when the angels cannot see. Now in record, remember that you are
completely erasing your greatness, right? Your greatness you are completely erasing it. How? By bending your body by saying words of glorification. And you are supposed to glorify Allah subhanaw taala for long any at times the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam Zulu core would be as long as his pm the same duration. So, say subhanallah Bella Alene for example three times and then say Cebu hyung could do some rubble Malacca he will roar, and then say Sub Saharan Africa will be hung de la ilaha illa Anta Glory and Praise be to you. There is none worthy of worship but you Subhanak Allahumma Robina will be handed a lot more fiddly Glory and Praise be to you Oh Allah, our Lord, or Allah
forgive me. Subhan Anika will be Handicare Estelle Federica were a tubal elaida Subhana dirigible route. Well Melkote Well, Kibriya will Aloma glory is to you, Master of power, Dominion, majesty and greatness. Another I'll be concerned record. Allahu Allah colocar to or Allah I have bowed to you, I make record to you. Why? Because I'm going to in you I believe what Islam to and to you I surrender. Hashem I like a summary. We're both sorry, we're mostly we're assuming we're also be my hearing by sight, my brain, my bones and my nerves, my muscles all are humbled before you. So the prophets of Allah who are listening would say so many different color, so many different Dora's in record. One
of the reasons why we've we do not find joy in Salah is because we repeat the same words over and over again. And we say them with our mouths, not with our hearts, our hearts are somewhere else. So it's necessary that we learn different call and we bring a variety in our salah, because that will help us with our show. After record is is the calmer meaning you get up again right but this standing position is shorter than the first one. And in this standing position, we should be completely straight, any we should make our we should stand completely upright. And as we stand upright, again, we should glorify and praise Allah. First of all, we say as we rise Samir Allah Who
Lehmann Hamidah Allah has heard the one who praised him and then we say a banana Willa can hunt or or a banana can hunt or Allahumma or banana can hunt any there's different ways of saying this and it's good to bring that variety in Salah that our Lord you deserve all praise Him then Kofi Ron Thank you been Mubarak and fie. A praise that is abundant praise that is pure and praise that is bless it and he alot and pure
And great, this is how much I praise you. Another thing we can say is some of your lovely lemon Hamidah along might have been a little hand mill or similarity were mill or we were mill OMA shake them in che embargo that Allah that oh Allah Our Lord for you is prays that fills the heavens and fills the earth and fills whatever else you will in another door all we add to that
center you will manage a Hakama call out we'll call Luna Luca Allahu Allah Maria Lima out later, when are more clearly mama Narita. When a young fart with a jet demon culture, that oh Allah you are worthy of what the slave has said. And all of us are slaves to you, or Allah none can prevent what you have willed to bestow and no one can bestow what you have willed to prevent and the wealth of the wealthy one will not help him against you.
In another era of karma, we say Allahumma Doheny be Celje Well, Bernard, when they're ill Ballard Allahu Mata hidden even at the newbie will Kataria coma Yonaka Thal will appeal to mineral wasa that Oh ALLAH purify me with snow, hail and cold water. Oh Allah Cleanse me from the sins and errors just as a white garment is cleansed from dirt. He's in this amazing he the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam worship to find the most beautiful way. And this is why his example is the best example for us. He we cannot come up with such beautiful words, such complete words, we can only learn them from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And you see in these words, we are taught to seek
forgiveness from Allah, we just did that at the beginning. And now again after ReCore when we glorify and praise Allah, again, we ask Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness and purification, after this is such that we go into such the end in such the Remember, a person
is close isn't the closest position possibly possible to Allah subhanaw taala meaning on this earth, the closest that you can find yourself to Allah is in the position of such though and Allah subhanaw taala tells us was good work the rip that makes such the and draw near draw near who Allah subhanaw taala because in such there now, you cannot even see anyone, right, you cannot see anything, you're literally putting your head on the ground, and what you see is just the ground. So in this position, as you are lowering yourself completely bringing yourself down and you are placing yourself on seven bones as we learn your hands, both your hands, your knees, your feet and your forehead knows you are
close to Allah subhanaw taala and this is why we should make a lot of Dora insearch though, and remember for every center, you get rewarded, your sins are erased, your ranks are raised, and the parts of the body that are involved in such the in making such that so the seven bones the knees, the feet, the two hands and the and the forehead, nose area. These parts of the body are forbidden on the hellfire, meaning even if a person ends up in hellfire because of some other things fire will not consume these parts of the body Subhan Allah may Allah subhanaw taala protect us from health and
in such the because we are closest to Allah, we should begin with the praise and glorification of Allah and then we should ask Allah so we should say SubhanaHu BL Barilla Glory be to my Lord, the Most High we should say Allahu Morphett Lima Assam to woman Erland you see you are conversing with Allah. This is like a secret or private conversation with Allah. So you're saying, Oh ALLAH forgive me, all of my sins, what I have concealed and what I have done openly in my sins that only you know of, Yet Allah forgive all of them. And again, you glorify Allah, Cebu hyung could do some rubble Mala Ekati will rule Subhana wa behenic La ilaha illa and you you are the most glorious, the Most
Holy Lord of the angels and God, glory be to you or Allah and all praise be to you. There is no deity except you Subhanak Allahumma Robina will be Hendrik Allahumma fiddly glory be to you oh Allah Our Lord and all praise be to you or Allah forgive me Subhana little java route while mela code will Kibriya it will Algoma go
already to the one who has all power sovereignty magnificence and might and especially you ask Allah for forgiveness Allahumma fiddly them be Kula who are Allah forgive me all my sins the kahawa joola Who small and great what a wala who are Pharaoh who first and last, where I learned that the who was Sarah who? Open and secret? We also ask Allah subhanaw taala for refuge, we say Allahu Allah or the Videla come in Celtic or Allah indeed I seek refuge with your pleasure from your wrath will be more emphatic coming robotic and with your forgiveness from your punishment what are all the we come in and I seek refuge with you from you law or sleep and and our lake? I cannot account for your praise
and that come at the need that I learned up sick you are as you have praised yourself. I cannot praise you enough. You deserve even more. So yeah, Allah you protect me. Even when you are angry with me for something that I am guilty of? Yeah, Allah still you protect me from your punishment. Allahu molucca, Sajid to where we can amend to Welaka a slum to all Allah before you I prostrate myself and in you I believe and to you I have submitted such a wedgie he literally halacha who was a warrior who worship person or who were bizarro who my face is frustrated before the One who created it and brought forth it's hearing and it's sight to BarakAllahu sanral Kalia clean, bless it is
Allah, the best of creators. We can also make dua news in such the Allahumma Gylfi Kobe Nomura of the summer you know what we must Sorry, no worries, your mean Inula Morenci Marley Nova, what a mammy Nora. Well, hon Fein aura will fall penal law with the new law, would you lean over the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this dua in such though also we're asking Allah for light in our heart and we're hearing in our vision on our right on our left in front of us, behind us, above us below us and all of us who are asking Allah to fill us with light. Now, when we get up from such the and we go back into such that again we have to sit and this is called the Jelsa right. And
in this sitting position, again, first of all, we have to make sure we become completely still some people do not observe stillness in the sitting position. They get out from such that and they go right back into such them. Know when you get it from such that sit still. And when you are still then say a bill fiddly, or Bill fairly, this is what we should say when we're sitting, that Oh my Lord, forgive me. Oh my Lord, forgive me. And you can say this over and over again, not just two times, the Prophet sallallahu urusan would say I'll build fiddly little bill fiddly, meaning over and over again. Oh my Lord, forgive me, oh my Lord, forgive me. And then you go back into such that.
And when you get up from such that in your second rocker, or in your last record, then you say the words of the show hood. And in the words of the show what what are you saying? You are basically glorifying and praising Allah, and you are sending solid Salam on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on Allah subhanaw taala is right to slaves. And you are making different doors. So you begin with,
with words of praise and glorification for Allah. So you say I'm here to deliver he was Salawat to work by Cuba to all greetings for Allah and prayers and good words. You see the word a day yet the yet means good words or words of greeting. And the Arabs would say they hear you need to greet one another. And what they meant to say was May you live a long long life, may you live 1000 years. Yeah. Because what is life? So adhere to the law means that all greetings all salutations are for Allah, any you are. Basically any complimenting and greeting Allah subhanaw taala. And then you were saying was salawat and all prayers also Salawat refers to the five daily prayers, and not just the
five daily prayers, but also every form of worship, and every Dora. Any you are dedicating that to who to Allah alone Lillahi wa salatu lillahi ne all worship you dedicate to who? Allah and then what the you bet by you bet means good words. Words of vicar pure words, words of praise, words of glorification
not just words by you, but also means good actions. So when you say at the here, you are saying that all words of worship are dedicated to Allah. So, this is basically calling a murderer you are worshipping Allah through your words, when you say salawat or for Allah, you are dedicating your actions of worship to Allah alone. So, this is fairly rabada. And when you sit by you, but good actions are good words, you are dedicating words of praise and glorification to Allah and also, you are dedicated all other forms of worship, for example, your charity, your spending also to Allah, so adhere to the law. He was Salawat to apply you but and then you say a Salam or Aleikum, au Hannah Vu
or Rahmatullah, he will not occur to you say Peace be upon you will the Prophet and the mercy of Allah and His blessings and then you say, a Salam or Elena what Allah Eva dilla Hassan Ali hain, may peace of Allah be upon us and upon the righteous slaves of Allah isn't the so beautiful, you you make dua for the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, and then for yourself, and all of the righteous slaves of Allah, any when you say this in Salah you are making dua for every righteous slave of Allah, whether they lived before they're alive now, or they will come to the earth after you have left the world. Subhan Allah, you know, so often people ask you to meet or offer them. When you say
this, you are including all of the righteous slaves of Allah in your door. And then you say the words of shahada, I shall do Allah Allah, Allah Allah, what I shall do shadow under Mohammed and Abu Baba Zulu I testify that there is no deity but Allah. And I testify that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a slave and His messenger. After the words of the shahada, you send Salawat on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and remember that this is the best way of making Daraa you begin with words of glorification and praise for Allah. You send Salah to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then you make dua. And what what Dora's can you make after this, there are so
many derives from the Sangha, and I will read some of them here so that you become familiar with them.
Allahumma inni Welcome to Nuptse bohlmann cathedra or Allah I have greatly wronged myself, while our young few dooba illa Anta and Nan forgives wrong actions except you. Fall Finley Mo Farah terminar indica what honey in the intellia photo Rahim. So grant me your forgiveness. And oh Allah be merciful to me. You are the ever forgiving, the Ever Merciful. We are confessing all of our sins over here, many, many sins over here. And we are acknowledging that no one can forgive sins except for Allah. And we're asking Allah for special forgiveness for great forgiveness from Himself and His mercy because he is able to forgive all sins and he is very merciful to his slaves. Another their
art we can make a lot more fiddly Makkad them to warmer a hole to warmer astrology to warmer Ireland to warmer surf to warmer and to Ireland will be him in the antenne mocha demo. What have you, La ilaha illa Anta O Allah forgive my former and latter sins, and those which I have done secretly, and those which I have done openly, and those sins in which I have wronged others, and those faults of mine about which you have better knowledge than I have. You are the one who sends forth and you are the one who delays. There is no true deity except you. We also make dua Allahumma in the URL that we come in our Darby Jahannam women are that will cover women fitness in mahiya, while Mummert women
Cherie fitness and mercy hit the jell O Allah, I seek refuge with you from the punishment of the grave, and I seek refuge with you from the trial.
Sorry, Oh Allah, I seek refuge with you from the punishment of Hell, and from the punishment of the grave, and from the trials of life, and the trials of death, and from the evil of the trial of the jungle. And you're asking Allah subhanaw taala to protect you from the from the greatest evils, the greatest dangers, the greatest harmful things that you could ever experience. And these are the punishment of health in the grave, the punishment of the grave. You're asking Allah to protect you from the different trials in this life and the trial of death. Any the trial of death is that a person
A makes such a mistake at the time of death that their good deeds are nullified because shaitan does not leave a person even at that time so yeah Allah protect me from that fitna and protect me from the greatest fitna in the world which is the thickness of the gel. In another version of this there are we also ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from when we met Sammy will mahalo that Oh Allah, I seek your refuge from sin and from debt. Any sin that I do not even realize and debt financial burden. Yeah Allah protect me from that because that makes life very difficult. Another there is a lot more in the art world becoming a bully.

Lada Illa Romo? What are all the becoming fitna? Dunya what are all the becoming or that will cover or Allah I seek refuge with you from stinginess, I seek refuge with you from cowardice. I seek refuge with you from reaching the age of
decrepit old age basically where a person is completely weak and dependent on others. And I seek refuge with you from the trials of the world and from the trials of off the grave the torment of the grave. We can also make some other such as Allahumma inni as a Luca ya Allah be a nickel where he do a how to summer the lady lamb yella dweller Mulan, welcome your Kula who Kufa went ahead and Delphi rally the Ruby in Intel have a photo Rahim that Oh Allah, I ask of you, Oh Allah, because you are the one the only one the self sufficient master, the one who neither begets nor is he born and there is none equal or comparable to him. I ask you Oh Allah that you forgive me my sins for you are the
ever forgiving the All Merciful. And remember that at the end of Salah before we say the salam This is also an excellent time to ask Allah subhanaw taala for whatever that you want. So for example, you can say Arabic generally multimodality women the laity have been outta Kabul Dora Rabanal fairly well you validate here within Medina your way of poetry. So, you can see Robina attina for dunya has an awful lot he has an Joaquina are there but now you can make any door and you can also say at this time Allahumma in the US a Luca bn noelekal hound, La ilaha illa and gentlemen, Nan buddy or summer work, he will help you either Jalali will kromm. Yeah hi you yaka young in the UK. That Oh Allah, I
ask of you, because you deserve all praise. There is no god but you you are Alma, Nan, you are the restore of favors. You are the Originator of the heavens and the earth. Yeah, they'll Jalali will eat Crom Yahaya Kurume ever living the sustainer of all indeed I asked you. And in Hadees, we learn that when you make dua to Allah with these words, then your doors are accepted. You are given what you asked for. So you can say this door in your the shahada also, any before you end your Salah, and then you can ask Allah subhanaw taala for whatever it is that you wish, may Allah subhanaw taala accept all of your doors. I mean, and after that we say a Salam or Aleikum, wa Rahmatullah and we,
we say salam to those in our right and those in our left. And remember, when you send salam to others, then the same is for you. Because when you make dua for someone else, the same door is made for you. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us all safety and peace that we so desperately need and wish for. I mean, Subhanak Allahumma will be handed a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta Astok Hirokawa to buoy lake was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
