Ramadan pigs

00:00:10--> 00:00:50

sit down why they can watch Matala he wa barakato Welcome to another episode of Ramadan pics. In this episode we'll be talking about developing our concentration of who Sure, will you military and outsider. And of course, this is a topic that scholars, the layman, people, Muslims have been discussing from the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this is an important topic, because if we realize that sada is the second pillar of Islam, that is the first act of worship that people will be held accountable for on the Day of Judgment, then it is something that we need to pay careful attention to. And it is something that we need to make better and improve. And so in this

00:00:50--> 00:01:29

episode, we'll talk about some ways and means and methods to improve our solder from amongst these methods is that we learn how to recite the Quran properly, and then we learn its meanings, and we learn its Tafseer. And this is something that is taken for granted in our times, but it's something that is definitely important, because when a Muslim recites al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen, what exactly is he or she is saying, and if we don't learn the meaning of the Quran, if we don't learn the meaning of all of the altcar that we recite in our solder, then outside our will become a ritual, something that we do to finish, not something that deeply affects us, not something that

00:01:29--> 00:02:09

brings us closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala nearly Arabic formulas and rituals and sit and sayings that we say, so that we can just finish this obligation, but Salah is so much more than that. So that is meant to keep us away from sinning from that which will earn the displeasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah. So we need to understand what we are reciting and what we are saying in our slaughter. So that's the first step. The second step is to make sure that they are no distractions before we start to perform outside. So we switch off our mobile phones, we focus on the fact that we are about to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala that we are going to stand in front of Allah, and that

00:02:09--> 00:02:52

we are going to worship Him and we are going to you may not humiliate, but humble ourselves we are going to humble ourselves to Allah, we know that he sees us he knows that he is us. One of those indications that we you know that when that realization becomes apparent, is when we come up from rocor. And we say semi Allahu Allah, Mohammed, Allah years those who praise Him and who glorify Him, and then we say, a burner wallet tell him that for you, our Lord for you, our master, there is praise. So this realization that you are communicating with Allah subhanho wa Taala you are fulfilling your purpose in life that is going to cause you to perform your Salah, as if nothing else

00:02:52--> 00:03:34

matters. And we hear these statements from amongst the seller where they used to say that you should pray as if that slider is the last time that you will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. Imagine that. Imagine that just before you were about to pray, someone told you that this is going to be the last solar, you will not worship Allah again. How would you pay everything that you say everything that you do in that solar is going to be done to the best of your ability with utmost concentration and humility. The third benefit or the third tip rather that we need to inculcate in our lives, is to realize and to perfect the soil out of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that the Salah be done

00:03:34--> 00:04:15

in a manner which is slow, which is done with a measure of love, where you're hoping for the reward of Allah subhana wa tada not something that you quickly go through. And we see this in the hadith of that man who the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kept on sending back to perform his Sunnah again. And at the end, he came in he said, Yeah, Rasul Allah, that I don't know how to perform my slaughter better than this. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught him and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam showed him and one of those things that I just want to take from that Hadith is hot tub DOMA in Araki and was edgy then the fact that you develop a level of contentment

00:04:15--> 00:04:38

of serenity in your cider. So that it's not something that you know, as one of my colleagues says, up down, touch the ground and back to town. And what he means by that is a sauna which is performed so quickly, that the person does not even remember how many times this has happened to you where you do not remember what you have recited in the first locker or the second locker after so often.

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

So Salah needs to be done with a sense of contentment. And the final tip, and there are so many My dear brothers and sisters, but the final one is that you need to realize that this slider is what you will be held accountable for firstly on the day of piano, this is the first time

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

That's going to be judged. So make sure that it's done to the best of your ability and strive strive will lie to make sure that your cider is something that you will be proud of on the Day of Judgment. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us of those who are cautious he will have concentration and humility in their Salah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept from me and from you desert Camilla Heron please don't forget to share these videos And may Allah subhanho wa Taala reward you as the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam says that the one who shows others the path to good is like the people will be like the people who are doing it by Article of income was set out why they come to LA
