too often these days we're focused on the bare minimum, it's what I call bare minimum fit. Well, is it permissible? If I do that? Or am I sinful? If I do that, and the implication of the way that the question is phrased is that, like, if it's permissible, you best believe I'm going to do it. And if it's not sinful, then this will not here we go, right, without sort of being attuned to what's said, What's the best thing to do? Right? You can't live life at the bare minimum. And you certainly can't worship your Creator at the bare minimum, which is why, you know, we have these pseudo robotic prayers, right, the sort of prayers that are attached to the five daily prayers. And it many of the
scholars said, if if you didn't pray those prayers, we wouldn't accept your testimony in a court of law. You know, you're not like a reliable person. I wouldn't trust my kids with you. You know what I mean? Right? Like, where are we compared to that they had higher standards that they were really serious about trying to worship? It wasn't just like a chore. It's like, ah, do I have to do the winter prayer? Do I have to the sort of prayers like it's a real question, you're asking that question? It's the wrong question. You know, you need to work on yourself and get to the point where you love to do where you want to do and where you need to do where you feel guilty and you feel like
you know, you're missing something out of your day, right? It's like if you skip breakfast, you know, many of us we're going to be crap. Are you skip your coffee for me? If you skip your coffee, I got a headache. Oh, my God, it's horrible. How long can I get to it? When can I get to it? The second you go in the door, boom, you put the you know, pull that pull that shot and you're good to go. Okay, what are we doing so that the sort of prayers get to that level? Where we're like, oh, man, I didn't pray What's your first thing? You a lot of people don't know you can make makeup Witter. You know, a lot of people don't realize that, you know, and there's different men that have
about exactly how long you have, but it's like, okay, it's like, first thing you wake up in the morning, you wake up and Phaedra I forgot to pray with her who's hitting the floor, you know, acting like I can't make it without this sort of thing. You know, that's where we've got to try to be we can't just live can't just be a wallflower can't just live with the bare minimum.
