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

The law with cinnabar colombina

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

Sara Marie Kumara to

00:00:29--> 00:00:36

the users out of the bag, as they say the cat came out of the bag, a bone mentioned to you all that I'm having a sixth child.

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

So, anyway, I mean, I wasn't going to tell you all, but I thought I'd tell you a story that I once read.

00:00:45--> 00:00:48

And that was what should you name your last child.

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

And it's really important because I've always wanted to name my last child, or my first child really is my for some reason I loved his mind the name.

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

And actually if you read about his mind and his persona, and how Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about his mind, and how Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam goes to his son, yeah, all my little boy in the interface, man, me and the other guy who got found

00:01:21--> 00:01:38

when you read how often he reads a surah in your heart just melts cytokinesis recite if you listen to is your citation. How used to how used to recite this versus your heart just not all my little boy, my beloved Son, I have seen in my dream that I am slaughtering us. What do you think

00:01:40--> 00:01:45

about it if I'm too much for my father, do as you have been

00:01:46--> 00:01:47

in the facilities verse

00:01:49--> 00:02:07

in the pursuit of this verse, even above for the Allahu taala and who said his smile rally his salatu salam said to his father, oh my father, let me start my Salah. And then I am Sajid and I'm prostrating to Allah, that strike my neck.

00:02:09--> 00:02:10

Yes.

00:02:11--> 00:02:14

And that's what I said, I have to call my son is fine.

00:02:15--> 00:02:23

Because you know what, these days parents don't raise their children really well. And who knows I won't be killing my kid perhaps but inshallah, but

00:02:24--> 00:02:31

these days Unfortunately, the way we raise our children is tantamount to killing them, we kill their hearts, we kill their souls, we kill their minds, we kill everything.

00:02:33--> 00:02:39

When I read about Su Qi, copied in a subtree, he said that the seal of this verse

00:02:40--> 00:02:46

and he said that the seal of another person who put on about Ibrahim malissa the snap talking about

00:02:47--> 00:03:23

him making dua to Allah about a child and he said and Hungary like that he will have any other kebari is mine. Okay, Glory be to Allah was given me despite my old age, as some by the name of is my sub consent. It is recommended that when you have a child when you're old, that you named him his name, because of how important he called him is fine. So I told my wife, I said, bad luck guys. I'm gonna call my last child is mine, not my first one. So the first one's gonna be useful. And the last one will be mine. So I told my wife in Sharla when you're having the 13th or 14th child

00:03:26--> 00:03:29

that's what we'll call this mine. Anyway, I just thought I'd tell you that

00:03:30--> 00:03:39

because I've seen some really amazing massage. And we'll let you be really amazed when you read the senior different part of Paradise equity.

00:03:42--> 00:03:50

When you read about our solar solar lighting setup, and how he converts with Allah subhanho wa Taala, you're truly amazed because the solar system was a magician, his words.

00:03:52--> 00:04:05

He was amazing with his words, despite being an illiterate man who could not read or write. He was amazing with the words that he could say, and color told us.

00:04:06--> 00:04:11

And that is why even the best of the Arabs would come to the Prophet itself and be amazed with the eloquence of this man.

00:04:13--> 00:04:15

One of the most eloquent things that I have ever heard is how

00:04:16--> 00:04:29

to call upon the depths of light. And I want to read to you one of the blogs of the of the prophets and I want you to think about this book. And I want you to think about how you can connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:30--> 00:04:41

in the way the prophets are set up connected, he said in the authentic hadith, which is in a without intimidate others, that once the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was missing next to Ayesha.

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

And he was praying that I should filter on where his wisdom found that he was standing and praying. And he was making a dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala What is this door? Listen to the door and how amazing it is. He said Allahumma Oh my god. Oh our Lord.

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

Until

00:05:02--> 00:05:51

you are the woman, you are the light of the heavens and the earth and that which is in it for you is praise and lahoma or our Lord and the father was one of the woman feeding you are the Originator of the heavens of the earth. And that which is in a local habitat for you is praise Allahumma or our Lord until you somehow it one of the woman moments we can you are the cherisher and Sustainer of the heavens of the earth and that which is in it and for you is all praise and love and all love for you displays a love and done or allow you are the truth well why don't you call her up and your promise is true. It was about to happen Jana is true one Naruto and the fire is true one Wu

00:05:53--> 00:06:09

and indeed the profits are true one more hammer than some of the law while he was selling them and more hammered some of them is true a lahoma bigger meant or Allah had believed in you Wiley cattle and upon you I have put my trust and my

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

what a lake

00:06:12--> 00:06:16

and to you I return independence while he later

00:06:17--> 00:06:27

and to you I return for your judgment what he later have come and to you I seek your your judgment in my affair fulfill the market

00:06:29--> 00:07:14

so forgive me that which I've done in the past and that which have yet to do mama are strapped on my island, that which I do in private. And that which I do in public. Yeah. My brothers, my sisters in Islam. Is there any more magical words that this word is more beautiful than this other than the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's why you know even has a Muhammad likes to say, if there was no cure, I'm assuming that would have been enough. And not just enough in just knowledge but would have been enough in eloquence because sometimes it was also known as SLM was so amazing like it touches the hearts and brains that you can imagine your equity love my tahajjud yet but i

00:07:14--> 00:07:25

tolerated I don't yet love it. I don't look forward to it like tonight go look forward to look forward to a nice warm bed. Especially when it's so cold like this ridiculously cold.

00:07:27--> 00:07:32

And believe me, I want to wear some some nice socks, some really nice shower, perhaps a nice

00:07:33--> 00:07:37

glass of hot milk, and then have a nice day to sleep.

00:07:38--> 00:07:43

But yes, this is not what Allah subhanho wa Taala created us for.

00:07:44--> 00:07:57

What did Allah subhana wa can create us for? You think about it. Initially when I used to speak to atheists talk for the purpose of life. You know, we always used to recite that same verse in Surah Surah Allah,

00:07:58--> 00:08:16

Allah subhanaw taala says methodical agenda will insert in the upper right, I have not created mankind and Jim, except that they worship me but the more I thought about it, the more I thought about the more I thought about it, the more I thought about it, and I thought somehow not this is not it only. This isn't the only purpose unless

00:08:17--> 00:09:03

there's something greater than that. That Allah has told us this verse only speaks about the least reason while not quickie but there is a greater reason for God. What is that? It's for gentlemen, Allah created up for gender. Allah created you and me so the weekend go to Jamaica and be with him for an eternity. Well, let us win better. Okay, if the total ultimate reason was Allah subhana wa The why is it that the God is only 70 years? Why is it that we're going to pray and fast and do jihad and do and given charity and being difficulty and strife and to Attica for kamalame, only for 70 years after they will die? normal size is Allah in general

00:09:05--> 00:09:13

is a jihad in general, is the difficulty and the delay with your legs breaking and cold will do.

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

Fish, there isn't any.

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

What's the agenda, you will worship all of us in Spanish.

00:09:21--> 00:09:25

And you and you will Tagalog because of the food that you ate here that

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

there is no ethical, ethical

00:09:30--> 00:09:31

time for ethical

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

respect, because with ethics.

00:09:36--> 00:09:45

I mean, that's the best way you think about it. If Allah wanted us and created us for eternal

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

worship, that we would be forever praying and fasting. And that's why I used to go to my Christian friends and say, what's what happens in general, you know, describe your agenda to me. And this is our world. You know, Paradise is like, you know, welcome to be like

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

Angel's

00:10:01--> 00:10:19

wings, and we're going to be flying and we're going to be having what's I think called? Yeah, whatever. And we'll be playing guitars and singing hymns. So what we'll be singing and praising God all day. So yeah. Isn't that fun? I said, Is it fun? Is anyone said church is fun? It's not fun.

00:10:21--> 00:10:23

Whereas our agenda is for fun.

00:10:25--> 00:10:37

So if Allah subhanho wa Taala credit us for all the bad, why is it that we are not worshipping Him, and praying and fasting and jihad, also in general, because reality is the real reason why luckily for us is because He loves us so much.

00:10:39--> 00:10:51

The real reason for which allows us is because He loves us so much, he really wants to see us in general. And that's why He created us. And that's why he gave us a very simple test of 70 years, which compared to any clinic is nothing.

00:10:53--> 00:11:31

You don't the day have led me think 27%, for example, or 23rd, pretty fit whichever night, we think that because we're all extra careful, are we not? Because we tend to think wow, every single minute, is equal to a few days, a minute or less. The other night is like three nights. That's what my calculation, I did one of the nights and one of the particular days in Saudi Arabia, and I calculated the days and I said Mama, one minute equals to three nights, three days, three full days. So if I said, if I prayed for a minute, it's like praying for three full days. So you know, everyone is really careful about every minute of the day.

00:11:33--> 00:11:37

But the absolute that is one night, compared to 1000

00:11:39--> 00:11:43

months, compare now 70 years to an eternity that

00:11:45--> 00:11:46

it's nothing

00:11:47--> 00:11:48

is no comparison.

00:11:49--> 00:11:58

Every second equals billions of years, every second equals billions and trillions of years, and the other isn't so

00:11:59--> 00:12:03

if that is the case, equity, every single minute of our life is so important.

00:12:05--> 00:12:11

And what can be better, in fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala that how Allah Subhana Allah practice prophecies

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

are further akuna have done Shaku that's why he prayed. He prayed because Allah was the most beautiful way to think of us.

00:12:21--> 00:12:28

It's the most beautiful way to love a lot, and to be faithful to a God who has created us for general life.

00:12:30--> 00:12:40

And he's created us so that we may have the blessings of gentlemen and eternity in Paradise, that which our eyes have never seen our ears and never heard. And our hearts cannot even think of

00:12:42--> 00:12:47

my brothers, my sisters in Islam, hope your sisters listening, keep saying sisters,

00:12:48--> 00:13:04

my brothers and sisters in Islam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam love this Allah so much that he has never ever made a dua for Johanna in the way that he made. For those people who may have missed a prayer.

00:13:05--> 00:13:08

And he has never ever been so angry.

00:13:09--> 00:13:09

Ever.

00:13:10--> 00:13:33

As when he ever actually missed his own Salah. Has he ever missed a solemn promise? Yes, he did. Listen twice. The Prophet says hello, actually Mr. Solid twice, it was reported when was that once it was reported that it was in the bathtub. In the bathroom? 100 authentic report. It's a Muslim that the Prophet says in the cane at the other end.

00:13:35--> 00:13:36

The sun had set

00:13:37--> 00:14:23

at the then he said oh, I did not pray about so prayer. Omar came as well, and said so Pamela, even I didn't pray about so prayer. Right? And so the soldiers said, may Allah fill the graves of the machine with five foot they have made us they have of course because of the pressure that they were in. Can you imagine Of course 10,000 mushrikeen against 3000 Muslims with the courage or the novocaine and the balloon lady in the back, you know, backstabbing them, obviously it's a really tense situation. And so the prophets Islam without wanting to Unfortunately, the second time is to sign up to look at the boy who made it. Seven times the Salah was when he overslept. And this

00:14:23--> 00:14:45

happened once and in some authentic narration and without where the prophets Islam into the battle, and I don't remember which battle it was an adult. Remember that daddy's actually mentioned it. But he went through a particular battle. And the Prophet said slept slept, and the Sahaba slept and they woke up in the morning and the sun was burning them when they woke up. So the prophets of Salaam woke up and he said

00:14:48--> 00:14:54

he forgot to give me a villa. And so below that which over took you over took me as a free

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

mini course was my father of Allah. Allah

00:15:00--> 00:15:29

And of course, he was not guilty of any sin at all, obviously. But he was so tired. And perhaps Allah did this as an example to show us all what to do if we missed. So what did the profitsystem do at this point? He moved on. He said, let's move on from here. This is a place where shaytan has has come. So they moved on, and of course, they did their Salah straightaway, the equity, the prophets of Allah, what he was sending them warned us against missing also.

00:15:31--> 00:15:47

At one hand, he loved the Salah, and he kept up with it. At the other hand, he warned against missing it in a very, very seriously in the authentic narration in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us of different places of jahannam that Allah has kept for those people who miss this Allah

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

and he tells us

00:15:51--> 00:15:56

about this place instead of money. And he says

00:15:57--> 00:15:59

about the Gambia

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

Economy The

00:16:03--> 00:16:10

Nepean I mean fully 80 of them and they are the ones who were blessed from the children from the MDF and the profits from the children of other

00:16:12--> 00:16:12

women.

00:16:14--> 00:16:15

Women hammer

00:16:16--> 00:16:31

and those people that we blessed along with the people that know had on his on his shift woman giulietti Ibrahim and from the family Ibrahim, what is Rajeev and from his heart.

00:16:32--> 00:16:38

When we mean when each debater will have a no which debater and those that we guided and that we chose

00:16:39--> 00:16:40

either however, it

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

still serves

00:16:45--> 00:17:01

women when they know which debater either a toothless Iron Man who sujeto puppy, and when inverse of Allah subhanho wa Taala was recited to them, they used to rush and cry, and prostrate rush to prostrate to Allah Subhana.

00:17:02--> 00:17:18

And this is the way of the prophets, the very next verse Surah Maryam Surah 55 the next verse, which is verse number 59. Subramanian that was 58 and 59. He says, For holla coming back at him holophone.

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

For so for you.

00:17:23--> 00:17:53

So there have to follow them meaning from the people who didn't listen to the profits, the follow them or people who said that they would pray, but they didn't pray about solder, they left the solder. What about OSHA? How about me follow the desires, for so far, you will, again will be thrown into this value of right? What is right, even a bus with your loved one who said the value is a very deep low line value in which the

00:17:54--> 00:18:36

the guts and the blood of the people of gentlemen that are above it, that when their bodies melt, and when they're pus comes out of the body, it will come into the valley of hiding. And the people who do not pray, who actually I'm sorry, who delay their saliva will be thrown into the value of life. This is the promise of what is the value of life. Again, God is a very deep, low lying Valley in one narration of some of the pious predecessors, the Hawk and others who said that the value of a vine is a very, very deep valley, if you were to jump into it, until you jump until the depth of the bottom, it would be 70 years of swimming

00:18:38--> 00:18:59

70 years of swimming until he reached the bottom of the value of a very deep, valuable way where the past and the cuts in the blood of the people of Johanna will be there. And this is the this is the place of dwelling for those people. Who about what does it mean to adopt to do it outside. It also means that you pray but you pray outside its time.

00:19:01--> 00:19:04

You pray that you pray outside. If you didn't even pray,

00:19:05--> 00:19:17

the way this person applied to you something worse applies to you. Only Allah knows what's worse. But this is for people who pray but outside it's time. What's an example of that people who, for example, you know,

00:19:18--> 00:19:20

have you heard this bizarre because we're just going to

00:19:22--> 00:19:43

be busy with work. Can you ask me to pray? I can't even put my legs on those. Have you seen those Washington's basis is too high comfortable common smells, and my boss is going to see a number of my legs up. So what did they do? They come back from their their work, and they do the work. So every time in one go class.

00:19:44--> 00:19:51

Is that true? Is it true or not? You're laughing because you know it's true. Correct? It's true. philosopher witness.

00:19:52--> 00:19:56

You know it's true because when money this is unfortunately what people do these days.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

This is the value of life.

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

This is the value of life the second value of life is told us about

00:20:05--> 00:20:09

is the value of waiting for ya loosening

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

of your own

00:20:17--> 00:20:25

way means Whoa. So linguistically means well according to some of the setup, may Allah have mercy upon them they said Wayne is also another value.

00:20:26--> 00:20:30

And the value of whale is less than the value of

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

of,

00:20:33--> 00:20:41

of the other one that we just mentioned. available. But the value of whale it contains a river of fire molten lava.

00:20:42--> 00:20:44

So I don't know which one you prefer.

00:20:45--> 00:21:11

Take your pick, do you prefer some puffs of guts? Or would you prefer some molten lava but the value of where you're set up for Why suddenly is for who whereas the other one is for people who pray outside its time the whale is a valley that is for people who simply pray within the time but delayed meaning what the time is from 12 to three

00:21:12--> 00:21:49

but 12 comes along comes a phone messages time for Salah people tell them time for Salah but I've got a meeting or I'm just gonna go for lunch. Yeah, or just go for lunch and so much goes on and it's like a French lunch right to our lunch. So you go up and you get up get in you get your cream and cheese if you Mashallah have your nice and dinner, then to 30 to 45. Good Lord, it's time for slack quickly. Let's quickly pray. And then you suddenly prayed but still pray within time. Right? Because also prayer other is three. So you suddenly pray in the last half an hour. We'll have that's why you

00:21:51--> 00:21:53

molten lava is your food.

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

equities Allah, Allah is activated.

00:21:58--> 00:22:15

Solar is greater than everything else. So that is more important in females. It's that which comes which brings you closer to Allah. It's also that which will be the greatest cause for regret of the Day of Judgment, the very first key that's judged that will judge on other deeds.

00:22:17--> 00:22:22

And the people of Gemina will speak to the people of judging them on the Day of Judgment. And they will say

00:22:23--> 00:22:37

one other gentleman does have enough they will ask them what they will say masala cuckoo soccer. What caused you to enter Jannah? What will they say first answer before anything else. London akumina Muslim never used to pray.

00:22:38--> 00:22:40

We never used to pray.

00:22:41--> 00:22:45

It's for this reason why it will pay more human losses any other era more pain.

00:22:46--> 00:22:48

Something really amazing.

00:22:49--> 00:23:02

He says the scholars does not have complete consensus that the one who does not pray is worse than that someone who drinks someone who takes a river, someone who

00:23:03--> 00:23:20

commits a sin and someone who kills a soul without you right? And they have agreed that the one who does not pray is worse than the one who does all of these things at the same time.

00:23:22--> 00:23:30

Can you imagine someone who fornicators and kills and drinks and takes liver it's kinda devil shaytan ne

00:23:32--> 00:23:46

ne the biggest devil you can imagine right? Now remember those bollywood movies are really bad. Surely evil looks evil, is drinking alcohol is shooting somebody and then he's got these dancing clauses going to sleep with evil man.

00:23:48--> 00:23:57

That guy is nothing compared to a person doesn't play. today. We tell our daughters Please marry this man. He's a surgeon.

00:23:58--> 00:23:59

That's a

00:24:01--> 00:24:09

good family. He has some money. Marry him. Look at him look so handsome. He's tall, Fair and Lovely.

00:24:10--> 00:24:14

we marry our children to people these days without caring whether they prey on law.

00:24:16--> 00:24:20

And international law. My dad was a great scholar of Islam was asked the question

00:24:21--> 00:24:38

is it is the marriage of the person who who is married. A person preys on a wife prays but her husband does not pray. Is their marriage valid sort of it's a it's a proper from leisure time. Is their marriage valid check with that said

00:24:41--> 00:24:56

that marriage is invalid. She must have to pray otherwise. She must leave him. I asked my chef. completely happy to lay chef. Do you agree with this? He said yes. It's a valid one. I do feel that he can

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

adopt any difference of this color.

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

To this point,

00:25:05--> 00:25:08

how many days to three days? Max?

00:25:09--> 00:25:12

Three days Max? Three days?

00:25:13--> 00:25:20

How am I going to make people? I'm going to tell them the marriage is invalid for three days? And within those three days? Yes, sir.

00:25:22--> 00:25:28

What? If your husband was a fornicator? Could you would you be married to?

00:25:29--> 00:25:47

The husband was killing someone? Would you want to be with it? No. My brother's Islam? Would you marry your daughters to someone who takes rubber and brings alcohol and kills and forming cakes? No, of course not. Why are you marrying doctors? to people that do not pray? And why are you insisting that this is a good thing cannot be good at all.

00:25:49--> 00:25:49

Cannot be good at all.

00:25:52--> 00:26:03

The very first book that was ever written about the greatness of Salah is a book by the by the name of the having come through Salah by this man called the man was a

00:26:04--> 00:26:38

great scholar of Islam, who was born in the year 202. After his trip, two years after a chef passed away. Two years from sorry, before a chef he passed away. And it was a great scholar of the chef. He wrote this book, because in the loop of hammers, nobody said that there was no better that was known except for four different types of data that arose. In the first 100 years in the first 100 years, four types of data arose. What are the types of data that arose in the Omaha system, the first 400 years of

00:26:39--> 00:27:27

the first one that was the data of others. Some people said that there's no pattern, right? Those are shaky. That's one thing. Number two was some people signed up to obviously, support earlier on that is of course the ship correct? Then the bigger the coverage came correct. And there's you know, that's the group that fought against it, right. So these are the three well known one, not major ones. And then a fourth one arose before the 100 years finished. Which one was this one. And this one was the origin of the people who did not believe the actions of email. So in other words, he wrote a book called the avocado salad in approximately 1300 pages, two volumes of 600 something

00:27:27--> 00:28:02

something pages, each book. And in that book, he filled it with hundreds of pages of proof of how the person who does not pray cannot be a believer. And in that book, he said the greatest evidence that shows the person who does not pray is not a Muslim. Is the Hadith in Sahih Muslim where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Listen to this heavy and see if it makes sense to you all. He says the greatest evidence that shows that a person who does not pray cannot ever be a believer. Is the Hadith.

00:28:05--> 00:28:20

In Sahih, Muslim where the prophets of Allah alayhi wa sallam said binal Muslims, okay, what is that he? What Baden kufri? Was Sheltie? tallapoosa Sala.

00:28:21--> 00:28:28

Okay, what did you say? between the person and his Islam? Or in one direction between Islam?

00:28:29--> 00:28:33

And between? uncouth free, what are Shin?

00:28:34--> 00:29:18

What did I say? before an owl ship? Okay. Third Person A well known Muslim, multiple durations, it's a well known, okay mature, very well known multiple changes in duration not to the level of water water, but however, it's definitely much more multiple changes in relation. Some of the Sahaba said some of the scholars have said about clothing changing dimension. What does it say? It says, between Islam? What is Islam Christ? Can anyone tell me? It's the religion Would you agree? and Islam? What is unmade? By the way? It's the definitive article for those who are Arabs, those in Arabic know what I'm talking about. So definitely article right. Islam means the Islam Would you agree? When you

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

say that Islam means the total of the religion? Would you agree towards whether religion? And the other thing you said is between al Islam and I will call for an L shape? What does that mean? What do you think?

00:29:31--> 00:29:35

Would you agree? And it means that alcohol means that Cooper allshare means

00:29:36--> 00:29:41

Would you agree that therefore when it's done, it must mean all of you for all of you.

00:29:42--> 00:29:54

Would you agree? Or if not all that you would at least me the greatest Cooper and the greatest ship it cannot mean go from Tanaka for Alaska for smaller, would you agree because it does have a resume.

00:29:56--> 00:29:57

And that is why

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

many of the scholars now

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

Many of them if it hasn't been Tamia

00:30:04--> 00:30:11

the old set this heavy is the Ashoka, Mama. The greatest evidence that a person who doesn't praise a disbeliever is this

00:30:13--> 00:30:13

being the

00:30:15--> 00:30:18

one who free worship Peter kusa.

00:30:20--> 00:30:22

A person who does not pray cannot be a believer.

00:30:23--> 00:30:25

A person who does not pray cannot be able to say

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

it's a serious issue. It's a serious issue.

00:30:32--> 00:30:35

On one hand, we have the prophets of Solomon who prayed because he loved his holiness.

00:30:37--> 00:30:56

On the other hand, we have leaving sulla is disbelief. What are we pointing at? What are we trying to get? What we are trying to get at is a person who does not pray is not fulfilling the reason for his existence. And a person who does not pray does not truly level so he cannot.

00:30:57--> 00:31:07

So personal does not pray. If your family members are not praying, if your friends are not praying, they cannot truly love a lasagna. Because even if they say they do their life,

00:31:08--> 00:31:12

what they're saying with their mouth and what the actions are showing is different from what is reality.

00:31:14--> 00:31:16

So you fit my brother's

00:31:18--> 00:31:21

the real purpose of our existence is realized.

00:31:22--> 00:31:27

And the purpose of existence is to be with Allah subhanho wa Taala eternally in general.

00:31:29--> 00:31:35

And without a doubt, we can never ever achieve it. Through salary equity, we all have a hope of coming closer.

00:31:36--> 00:31:46

And we have a means of repentance to Allah subhanho wa Taala Silla and Africa with Allah subhanho wa Taala that nothing else no other type of eradicate ever give

00:31:47--> 00:31:50

the prophets or send them the first thing that he focused on was

00:31:53--> 00:32:15

when he entered into Medina, what's the first thing he said? Yeah, you're all mankind authentic. Have you seen suitability, but then you say, Yeah, you're not. And he imagined the Prophet first entering entering McCullough entering Medina. It's like, you know what, what's your name below? You've just been appointed the Prime Minister of UK

00:32:16--> 00:32:19

Mashallah, well Donna your plan worked

00:32:22--> 00:32:29

so imagine Villa has been appointed Prime Minister of UK Masha Allah subhanaw taala or better yet the president of Pakistan

00:32:31--> 00:32:53

and this is the inaugural speech No, we had so much importance on Obama's inaugural speech etc. Right? So without is not going to give his first speech, the first feature of the solar system what do you think he said? Yeah, so he's talking to Jews and Christians and Muslims and non Muslims like everybody here that's very important. You got to speak to everyone everyone wants to listen to what you have to say your prime minister.

00:32:54--> 00:32:55

Okay.

00:32:56--> 00:32:57

And what does he say?

00:32:59--> 00:33:10

feed people food what I should send them and spread this alarm are so loopy lately we're nursing Nia and prayer the depths of the might was people are asleep the whole agenda. You will enter agenda in peace.

00:33:12--> 00:33:13

First advice.

00:33:14--> 00:33:23

First advice, simple things food salon. And of course, how can you forget the most important thing with Asana

00:33:24--> 00:33:38

the last advice of the prophecies have dealt with me well known and well known duration, after about Swami and Masuda lies a lot more than one year old Asana, Asana Malika

00:33:39--> 00:33:41

The last thing that was heard from a solar cell seller,

00:33:42--> 00:33:51

right, as he passed away from this dunya is our solar a solar you know, by electrify America that which you're right has possessed at your obligations upon people.

00:33:52--> 00:33:55

So you live with the laws of logic and the obligations upon people.

00:33:57--> 00:33:59

Throughout his life, what's the first thing he taught people

00:34:00--> 00:34:04

throughout his life when he entered the Medina first thing he built was the masjid.

00:34:05--> 00:34:08

That's the Sunnah that is more important than anything else.

00:34:10--> 00:34:19

Not only because of love of Allah azza wa jal, and a fearful but because of something, perhaps that joins between the love and fear of love. And that is hope.

00:34:21--> 00:34:26

That we must have hoped from Allah subhanho wa Taala and the greatest means of Hope is our Salah.

00:34:28--> 00:34:30

How is that? Because the prophets have said

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

the closest a person is with the loves of a gel

00:34:35--> 00:34:37

is in his Salah.

00:34:38--> 00:34:49

That's number one. So it gives you hope that loves listening to you that love hearing what you say, paying attention to you. And he knows what you're about to say still he pays attention number two

00:34:50--> 00:34:52

for solo solo models.

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

He said the Sala will come as a knight in the grave protecting him in his grave

00:35:00--> 00:35:22

For the punishment of loss of which gives you hope. Number three the profits from said the salaah will come for a person as a weakness for him on the Day of Judgment IRBs Allah will say authentic narration of the Prophet said he said, Allah manaka human unknown, I stopped him from his sleep era.

00:35:24--> 00:35:27

So I better success now. So that is a means of hope one last imagery.

00:35:28--> 00:35:52

In the authentic narration the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, a person who is to recite the Quran, and according to the scholars of Medina explained this to me, that the reciting the Quran in the Salah, to the person who recited the Quran, he will be asked to go into Jenna, and his last place in Jannah, will be with the last verse that he recites. So the scholars different, how many levels are there?

00:35:53--> 00:36:02

How many levels are there? Some scholars say there's 100 levels, because it's an authentic integration. It's a Muslim, where the Prophet says 100 levels. And that's

00:36:03--> 00:36:19

another opinion, which is reported by some of the scholars such as if it can be your ally and others. Others, they said Gemma is five proof for that. Well, proof of that is this idea that with every single verse that he recites, you'll be asked to go another level another level

00:36:21--> 00:36:22

5000 levels,

00:36:23--> 00:36:25

each level greater

00:36:26--> 00:36:29

than the level before it like the difference between this earth and the heavens that

00:36:30--> 00:36:31

he imagined.

00:36:33--> 00:36:35

Can you imagine how amazing that would be?

00:36:37--> 00:36:44

equity on the day of judgment when Allah subhanho wa Taala tells the angels to sweep down for would you

00:36:46--> 00:36:47

tie him up.

00:36:49--> 00:36:50

So much Jackie was on to

00:36:52--> 00:37:07

grab these people grab them and tie them up with authentic narration It was reported for the FCC, who Allah subhanho wa Taala gets really angry with the people after the judgement is done, he will order the angels to sweep down and grab the people by their faces and drag them into Java.

00:37:08--> 00:37:16

And they mentioned that the only way the angels will recognize a person and so miss that person will grant them is by the authority to do

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

this by the light on their faces because of the places that they used to make upon.

00:37:24--> 00:37:29

So if we're at the places we washed our bodies and faces, our beards, our hands

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

it will all shine forth and that is how the angels would recognize us of the day of judgment and not grab us to throw us into China

00:37:39--> 00:37:42

gives you hope doesn't gives you tremendous hope among us

00:37:45--> 00:37:46

wa t Asana.

00:37:47--> 00:37:52

Asana will bring us closer to the soul of us and Allah and he will send him to anything else.

00:37:55--> 00:38:00

In one authentic narration the prophets have ascended a man cave to the prophets have said yasunaga

00:38:02--> 00:38:09

How can I be your source revenue companion in general

00:38:10--> 00:38:37

so the Prophet says have said that got a copy you asked me for something really great. So help me or me because after the surgery, so help me in a live setting my blog of you being my companion in general with a lot of frustrations. So if you truly want to be able to sort of settle and make your frustration that means are coming closer to the source as a means of being with Rasulullah solution.

00:38:40--> 00:38:53

Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't need a lifetime readout from us he needs that one single divider that is so righteous and so clean and so pure that it's not meant by anything except the face almost

00:38:54--> 00:39:01

the only muscular is Is there anyone here who can guarantee that that you have even that one single frustration

00:39:03--> 00:39:04

and this is why

00:39:06--> 00:39:08

Abdullah bomber used to say to the

00:39:09--> 00:39:22

glory be to the one to the tuba which is which means two things are the three agenda agenda itself and they will generally go to back to back to the person who can guarantee that Allah has accepted even one of his frustrations

00:39:23--> 00:39:28

For indeed for life succeeding one prostration he will not allow you to be punished in gender

00:39:30--> 00:39:36

equality assala gives us hope like nothing else. It gives us hope that our sins will all be removed.

00:39:37--> 00:39:46

It gives us true hope that his sins we will have Sahabi came to the prophecies of yasunaga have done a really filthy thing. What have you done? I have kissed a

00:39:48--> 00:39:48

mosquito.

00:39:50--> 00:39:52

You know for us if we kiss a woman

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

I don't think we would consider that to be Xena. The Sahaba were worried that it was enough.

00:40:00--> 00:40:15

So even Massoud said, you think of your sins like they are flies in front of you that are buzzing or funny, you simply move your hand and they just go away. Whereas we used to think things are like this huge mountain about about to crash down upon our hands.

00:40:17--> 00:40:33

So this is how we came to us and said, jasola I can really tremendously What have you done? I've kissed somebody. So the prophet SAW looked at him and said, Did you just make more boobs? Yes. Would you pray with us? Yes. Did you concentrate in your prayers? Yes, insha Allah, Allah would have the goodness of

00:40:34--> 00:40:43

fit the people of Siemens who is their monster except that we are sitting every day we are singing even once we're praying, that's what he says. Right after.

00:40:46--> 00:40:49

To all the people have seen the one who's speaking and the one who's been spoken to.

00:40:51--> 00:40:53

So Allah gives us hope that Allah will forgive us

00:40:55--> 00:41:08

because the prophets have said the person who prays he doesn't stand up for prayer except that his sins are put on his shoulders when he does that surfaces for us to do that all of his sins will have authentic radical Muslim

00:41:10--> 00:41:28

the prophets since an authentic and even before us, me anyone amongst you who if you have a shower five times a day that he said that he would be clean. He also loved five times a day 100 loves no one amongst us today will be so pure. So Salah is like a river that is in front of the house and you believe in it five times a day.

00:41:30--> 00:41:54

Yes, 45 brothers and sisters now solid uses the greatest hope that our sins will be forgiven, and that we'll be able to be with our profits or send them in jail. And please Yeah, what you don't think that we can't do if we can't be with him? Why is the Quran even telling us about why would the rasuna some Tell us about it must have an opportunity to meet with rasulillah service

00:41:55--> 00:42:09

to be with him enough for those if we didn't have that opportunity and chance there will be no further no benefit if that even being mentioned that's that's what everything is is that sometimes the South associate of the new he thinks that he can never ever attained that level

00:42:11--> 00:42:29

that may well be the case for a lot of us. But if that was truly the case that the law has already chosen the people or for those who is already done and dusted it's like you know when you try and book a seat, I want business class is gone. What business class is gone right okay. Let me pick double let me get

00:42:30--> 00:42:48

first class and the trouble is it looks at you like are you done in business class has gone to two things first has also gone before that so first class is gone business class is gone. like come on after pay double and triple. Let me get me in some of the other Nope, we're all booked all the way until two months later.

00:42:50--> 00:43:06

For those who are not like that, it's not like it's booked and done dusted, no chance to any one of us to achieve it. If that was the case, there'll be no fun either in those haven't been mentioned. And Allah subhanho wa Taala telling us to struggle and strife must be a chance you must believe you have an opportunity.

00:43:07--> 00:43:10

And so you have an opportunity to earn that photos today.

00:43:11--> 00:43:20

You must believe you have the opportunity right now, with the next honor to earn that purpose. You must believe that you must and that is our job that is hopefully

00:43:22--> 00:43:26

one minute, one minute to be in the

00:43:27--> 00:43:36

dark blue. And no one despairs, the mercy of Allah except for the unrighteous people, the misguided people.

00:43:37--> 00:43:46

You must have hoped for love so much as well as the tremendous fear of your soul or be rejected, as well as tremendous love of Allah azza wa jal for yourself

00:43:48--> 00:43:55

and equity I'm going to end with this practical advice. how they how do you start? How do you really stuck to what you

00:43:56--> 00:44:25

have is the most important prisoner because the 100 is the one that's the most difficult hamdulillah you all come for your saliva Mashallah. Life configuration, inshallah you're close by hamdulillah for many of us who are still struggling with our five daily prayers, but, you know, for a number of us, at least the people attending this machine, I can see vast majority few 100 I have the look of piety on your faces and shower, you all attend your your prayer as much as possible, and pray them on time.

00:44:26--> 00:44:27

But the real problem is

00:44:28--> 00:44:42

how do you start? I had this huge problem a few years ago, I just couldn't make myself play. And I came across a Malaysian of of moolah, but some of his students came to me they said Yeah.

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

What do you say about a tolerable who does not pray?

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

I said bits of legend saw

00:44:55--> 00:44:56

me evil man

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

is that student of knowledge

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

One who does not stand to prep? Pizza?

00:45:05--> 00:45:12

What an evil man is that man who does not pray at the depths of the night? Yesterday? How do you pray at night? How difficult?

00:45:13--> 00:45:23

All right, here's a simple, simple way that I try and handle at work to be alive, alive after a week or two. Analyze to me.

00:45:24--> 00:45:26

What's the worst thing that you ain't about? Pray

00:45:27--> 00:45:38

about my prayer. For example, what's the worst thing? Standing up? would you say is the most difficult thing? Don't you just love it when you see an uncle who just gets to sit on chairs? Come on.

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

Don't you sometimes look at an uncle

00:45:50--> 00:46:04

sometimes envied uncle, would you agree? Yes or no? That's true. Okay. All right. Well, there are lots of differences between an obligatory prayer and a non obligatory prayer, one of the differences is in a non obligatory prayer.

00:46:07--> 00:46:16

You don't have to stand up in a big return, you must stand up, correct. In a non obligatory, you don't have to stand up. That's where the Prophet can pray, for example, not obligatory prayers on his candle,

00:46:17--> 00:46:30

you can pray and one of the key players was Jonah writing this correct. Even when you're driving your car, you can pray and none of the prepares sitting down non obligatory prayers. Of course, the reward is half. But the point is, you're still praying. Correct?

00:46:31--> 00:46:39

That's what I've said to myself. So the worst thing for me is I can't stand up for an hour. So eight records, my plates gonna break. I'm, of course, I'm

00:46:41--> 00:46:50

an old person, you know, my legs are painfully Why am I shut up? Right? So I luckily have said, You know what, I'm going to sit and pray.

00:46:51--> 00:46:54

The second issue that I had is sometimes

00:46:56--> 00:47:07

I make mistakes. And because my citation is I want to read Sora for example, from my memory. Sometimes what happens is when I read is useless, it sort of I mess up a verse. And so I feel like Subhanallah

00:47:10--> 00:47:19

I missed it up, you know, and I feel really bad myself. And so, you know, like, I wish I was praying behind somebody or some screen behind me, at the very least he would correct me from a mistake, right?

00:47:21--> 00:47:28

But then I remembered, you know what, it's permissible to take your book, the program with you, in your footprint.

00:47:29--> 00:47:31

So that's why that's what I'm going to do.

00:47:32--> 00:47:37

I started my big prayer, sitting down, praying the whole prayer sitting

00:47:39--> 00:47:43

in my hand, to refer to what I'm reciting. And started

00:47:46--> 00:47:48

in the first week, I was finishing Baccarat.

00:47:49--> 00:47:50

Believe me,

00:47:52--> 00:48:03

because I've memorized it, so I could read it. So I could refer the book in my hands at the very least, if I messed up a verse. I wouldn't miss it. I still have the book to refer to, you don't want to say and hungry. At the very least.

00:48:04--> 00:48:20

I was praying after a week, you know what I feel like standing. But so Judo is difficult, and we still come on. shutdown still again. But what I did was, you know what, I'll stand and pray for the suit. I'll actually sit on a chair. So I did that for a week.

00:48:22--> 00:48:23

Now after that, you know what,

00:48:24--> 00:48:26

watch, I don't make this stuff.

00:48:27--> 00:48:33

I simply have the chair next to me and I have my hand still because I could use it for reference or correcting

00:48:36--> 00:48:40

me it's possible if you use this strategy.

00:48:41--> 00:48:50

Okay, I've heard of other other ways people have tried, but you have to struggle with yourself and make the hijab bearable to you inshallah. And that's how you make

00:48:51--> 00:49:08

salatu salam Amazonia come closer to you. Does that look like a plan of record would work? The good isn't it? It sounds almost too easy. Or you feel like you're cheating yourself and then you keep telling yourself Oh no, I don't want to have to do what you have to do is better than no reward at all.

00:49:09--> 00:49:12

Would you agree? And sometimes that's how you have to enter into it.

00:49:13--> 00:49:26

So ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make a follow up for Best of our deeds because of those people who pray Our prayers do love from Lhasa would you like the way the prophecy did have be very afraid of missing or Salah was

00:49:28--> 00:49:53

like a lots of headwater told us not to do so. And to make US dollar means our hope of Allah subhanho wa Taala has mercy for indeed, such a stable law those who didn't do a good deed they hope they hope from Allah azza wa jal, a lot of good things. And we have lots of panels make our Salah, a witness for us with our graves, a defender for us in our graves a witness for us the day of judgment and that means of facilitating the highest of

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

the Day of Judgment.

00:50:03--> 00:50:05

But this is what I realized is

00:50:07--> 00:50:10

you may have some pressing questions. So what we'll do is

00:50:11--> 00:50:30

maybe take a couple of questions from the brother side. And the sisters, I understand that some of you can write questions down as well. So you can pass this down in Charlotte. So we're looking at finishing tracks five to 10 minutes. But if there are any pressing questions, and please feel free to raise your hand and, Charlie, if you have anything you'd like to ask, are there any questions on the other side? Yeah.

00:50:41--> 00:50:43

So the question is, is it obligatory to bring a master

00:50:57--> 00:51:01

is obligatory to pray in the masjid? Absolutely. Absolutely. It is.

00:51:03--> 00:51:04

00:51:35--> 00:51:36

However, there are other authentic

00:51:39--> 00:52:14

and logical inferences from assume that that show that prayer in the masjid is obligatory. And you cannot use this as an evidence simply because it is not talking about a person having a choice, but rather when a person is not having a choice and he's just preying on his own or individually at that point.

The first is authentic Muslim, one sort of law so the law is sometimes said law sanaka the jar mustard.

00:52:15--> 00:52:16

There is no prayer for the

00:52:18--> 00:52:31

for the neighbor of a Masjid except in the masjid. The scholars are different who is a neighbor of domestic. Some of them said that the one who could hear the other of the other said 40 prayers 40 houses in front back right left
