00:00:07--> 00:00:08


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

periods and the most important issues for us to be paying attention to, but how easy is it for us to just put it on the side, you know, we all we end up doing everything else. And we neglect our prayers in the end.

00:00:25--> 00:01:07

You know, that's we get so busy with our lives, we get so busy, busy with the dunya, and all of our responsibilities, and we start to slowly neglect our prayers and put them to the side. But we don't realize that what we should be doing is trying to always make it a priority to organize our lives around our prayers and not organize a prayer in our life. Because once you start to organize your prayer around your life, you end up neglecting the prayers, you end up missing prints, even because you just try sticking your prayer wherever you can find time to put it in. And that's not what we should be trying to do. We should we should we know our prayer times, yes, we do have a few hours,

00:01:08--> 00:01:45

in general to pray those prayers, but we don't have to pray them in the beginning of the time. But the more you neglect it towards the end, slowly, you end up getting to a situation where you end up missing the prayer completely. So that's why it's not, it shouldn't be our habit to constantly be praying our prayers towards the end of their time, our habit should be trying to establish the prayer for the beginning of their times. And then sometimes due to a situation or another that's out of our control. We might delay you know a bit longer. So we should be trying to aim to pray Our prayer within at least the first hour.

00:01:46--> 00:02:01

And then, you know, like sometimes things will come up when we might have to delay there'll be longer than that. But in general that should be That should be our goal every day, once we've got that we start to organize our life around our prayers.

00:02:04--> 00:02:04


00:02:06--> 00:02:46

even when it comes to good deeds, we have to realize that you know, a lot of people like you might get really busy doing good deeds, like helping sisters outside the house, you know, working with a charity, whatever you're doing. And then sometimes you forget to prioritize your prayers, even good deeds are good deeds, and not on the same level as praying your five prayers on time, like that is a priority. Even when someone asks the prophets that I love why they listen what is the most beloved of all deeds to Allah, what is the most beloved deeds to Allah, he said, a solid to Allah.

00:02:47--> 00:03:16

The prayer time, the more hair in general is prayed towards the beginning of the time, the more in love that prayer is to Allah, there are some exceptions in that, like, I share his love to delay the prayer if you're not pregnant, it is love to delay it. Um, you know a bit later, but not too late. And also both if it's very hot, it is from the sun not to delay the prayer slightly when it's hot.

00:03:18--> 00:04:02

But in general, praying the prayer towards the beginning of the time, this should be our aim. And this is, you know, if we're, if we're striving for good deeds, we're hoping to please a lot with our life, then this is this should be our aim. So trying to pray the prayer towards the beginning of the time. Because it's the most loved update as we said to Alaska just now we have to realize that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us that the prayer is nor the prayer is light. So this is how much you're in need for prayer in your life. You're so desperately in need for prayer in your life, because prayer is nor is the light of your life. Without prayer, your life becomes a life of

00:04:02--> 00:04:50

darkness, a life of emptiness, a life of ignorance. You don't know where you're going in life. Whereas when you're stuck to your prayers upon a law, you see the blessing that a lot of places in your life. He places blessing in your family, he places blessing in your household. He gives you guidance in your life. You can see clearly the matches, you know the differences between the good and the evil like people who are not stuck to their prayers. They can't it's very difficult for them to see what is haram and what is halal. But when you're stuck to the praise Allah gives you for all he gives you a criterion that you can distinguish between what is something hated alone, what is

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

something which you couldn't play it and loved and you get that feeling in your heart. Without friends, you won't have that developed within yourself. That's

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

Why the Dallas is in no solid

00:05:03--> 00:05:55

fashion, even mukha that the prayer forbids a person from fascia and mukha it forbids the person from evil. And you know from doing things it stops, you know, like gives you self control. That's what prayer does. It's a light in your life, that helps you get self control. When you're able to pray your prayers on time, you'll find all the other aspects of your life will start to fall into place. I can testify this to Mike for my own self, when I first kind of like embraced Islam all those years ago. And as much as I believed in on law, but it wasn't until I actually started praying my five prayers on time that I really felt my whole life just fell into place. I knew where I was

00:05:55--> 00:06:26

going. And I really felt that direction in life, it keeps you on track. But if you start to neglect your prayers, you start to not pray them. You see how your life is like a mess. You go to bed at night, you feel like your life is in a mess. So what is the key to fixing up a life and fixing a life. Start with the prayers, pray your prayers on time and Subhanallah you'll see how your life just start to fall into place without you even trying to find a law.

00:06:28--> 00:07:12

And we have to realize that for those people who don't pray, you know, they don't pray at all like altavilla like they don't realize how much they are in darkness in this world, the emptiness they have in their hearts. And then the sad thing is when they go to their graves in the next slide, all they find is the darkness of the pub. All they find is the darkness of the grave surrounding them May Allah protect us because we have to realize that the Salah is no it is light for the believer and and just like you were looking after your Salah in this life and it was a normal for you in this life, the Salah will be a nor for you in your grave will surround you and it will be

00:07:13--> 00:08:00

a comfort for you Subhana light in the darkness of your grave. And similarly, on the Sirat on the bridge over the hill fire, which is so dark, you can't see anything. It's blacker than the darkest night. And yet upon a lot due to your prayers and your melancholy had your righteous deeds, a loss of pantalla will give you a light to be able to see your way in crossing over the sea right over the bridge over the hill fire to Panama. So we have to realize that, you know, prayer is such an important part of our lives. And we need to establish our household upon the prayer. If you want success in your family. If you want success in your marriage, then you have to establish your

00:08:00--> 00:08:23

household upon the prayer. And this is why you find the prophets in the NBA. They used to make dwis to Allah to keep their families and themselves dig fast upon the prayer. For example, we see how he bring him Alayhi Salaam who used to make the dryer or I'll be Johnny booty masala tea will mean to be at

00:08:24--> 00:09:14

Taco Bell. So he's to say, Oh Allah, make us You make me from both establish the prayers, and from my offspring and my children make us all from those who are steadfast upon the prayer of Allah except my daughter, because he knows that the common law, the prayer pieces, assist in keeping your household on track, keeping your household together, not going through grief later on. If your children goes straight, because you didn't bring them up on the praise, how many sad stories have we seen of people crying over their children, or because they didn't bring up their children upon the prayer. And then later on, you see the effects of that they were so worried to bring up their kids

00:09:14--> 00:09:46

as doctors as engineers as having a really great career. But they didn't pay attention to making sure that their their children was stuck to a salon and then you have to suffer the pain of that it's kind of like you suffer the consequences of that later on. And it's not something that anybody wants to go through like you would prefer to not have money in this world than to see your own children go astray and go off the straight path it is more painful than that. May Allah protect us and keep us keeps firm on the straight path.

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

And we see how you smile. Allies slam like we see how Allahu taala he described a smile. What can a mortal as Allahu Allah T was the catchy What can I eat?

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

Don't be so alone. Allah tells us how the smile he used to commend his family. The Sala was the cat for the to establish the prey and establish this a cat. What can be he modeling? Yeah. So I was pleased with him due to the way he was living his life, stuck to the prayers and stuck to performing as a cat. And we see also how the first thing he says to Moosa what after you saw the victory, and perform the prayer in order to remember me if you want to be close to Allah, and you want to be from those who from the they're kidding, those who remember Allah. And remember, if you say you love Allah, the sign of your love for Allah and remembering him is your prayer and your dedication to the

00:10:54--> 00:10:58

prayer. So we have to put our priorities into order.

00:11:02--> 00:11:47

So this is why this is we see the prophets that a lot while Sam was always emphasizing, with the companion about the prayer over and over again, like, we cannot have enough lessons, reminding us about our prayers, because prayer is something we have to do every day. And there are times where I know you get lazy with your prayer, things happen, you start to go backwards a little bit with your prayers. That's why we need to have constant reminders of the prayer You see, that's why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was constantly reminding the Sahaba and reminding Omar of the importance of the prayers. I mean, you think about it, sisters, we are going through hard times as Muslims, we are

00:11:47--> 00:12:34

going through trials and tribulations. How do you expect to keep your slaughter dead path through these trials and through these hardships? If you're not at least keeping your steadfast steadfast through your prayer, you need it. It's your connection to Allah. It is your lifeline to Allah. Only if you let go of the lifeline, what's gonna happen to you, you're gonna drown. You're gonna drown in these waves of fitna, you're gonna drown in these waves of hardships and trials, it's so easy to slip off the path of a lot. If you're not holding on tight. You have to keep holding on and making yourself steadfast, even if it's hard to struggle with yourself. You might be really down you might

00:12:34--> 00:13:18

feel like I don't have anything left in me even to pray. Just get up and push yourself any we don't even want to pray. Push yourself to pray, sisters, keep pushing yourself as the panela. You'll see how very soon, you want to pray. It's a matter of habits. Prayer is also a matter of habit. The more you push yourself, even against your own neck when it's telling you No I don't want to pray. Push yourself against it. Don't get into the shade bond. Don't get into your neck, heavy on yourself, trying to push you're not to pray, keep pushing against it, push against the tide. And Subhanallah give it some time, you'll see that slowly you'll want to pray that you'll look back and think and

00:13:18--> 00:13:23

hamdulillah I States did pass because now it's easy for me once you get over that hurdle.

00:13:24--> 00:13:44

So we have to realize that all success is to be found through the prayer you want success in this life. It weighs so heavily on your prayers, success in this life and success in the euro. You cannot have success in this life nor the ltr unless it's a Panama you're stuck to the prince.

00:13:45--> 00:14:27

Let's talk about some of the benefits of the prayer that we're getting. Every time we pray the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us that if one of you had a Riba slowing in front of your house, and you took a bath in it five times a day, would there be any dirt left upon you? And so of course, the companions they said, No, you're a civil law. So law one it was sent him. And so he told them that is exactly like the prayers, the five prayers that Allah continues to wipe away your sins, and to wash away your sins, through your prayers. That's the effect you're constantly getting purification through your prayers.

00:14:30--> 00:14:53

So as to Panama, like if you pray God, it wipes if you pray your midday prayer, it wipes up to the minus things that came before it. And if you pray after your afternoon prayer, it's wiping out and exploding for sins that came between, you know, smart minus things that you have done between the midday prayer and the and the afternoon prayer

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

and even the prophets of Allah what else and he tells us how is it how do you

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

prayers come up a person when they pray. So he tells us in a Sufi narration in a very happy, he tells that that when the believer stands before Allah in his prayers, his sins abroad and gathered and placed upon his head and his shoulders, okay, so when you go to pray before a lot of the scenes are placed, or they gathered on the person's head and shoulders and so when they make look or when they make bowing in that prayer, and then it's such that when they make the prostration in the prayer, the sins are falling down from you. Each time you do that you don't realize this seems uploading down from you through that those actions of before and produce how much you becoming

00:15:43--> 00:16:18

purified each time you're getting closer to Allah, each time you pray to Allah, you're getting closer to me, and he's wiping away those things. He's purifying you where we're in need for constant purification, we're always in need for constant purification to Panama. So this is why you know, also, you know, from the sooner to lengthen the record as well to lengthen the bowing to lengthen the prostration you know, panels, you know how much that's good for you. This also encourages you inshallah, to to one to lengthen your sense, don't you see that the righteous seller, how much they would lay in there because

00:16:20--> 00:16:41

even the Prophet said a lot while he was selling, you know, like, for example, it's mentioned by about some Fianna folding, that he prayed in Mecca in the heart on, he prayed on the tsunami of money, and he stayed in touch device, from the time of the tsunami, all the way up until the event for

00:16:42--> 00:16:48

power, this is how much he wants to stick me in is to allow for these to do that we know and she says that

00:16:49--> 00:17:19

they know in the city, when you're in the prostration to Allah, this is the closest place in this dunya that person comes to a law that you're in a position to be in this, this whole world to Allah subhanaw taala when you're in your suit, George so if you think about that the righteous leaders of the past wanted to stay that long in that condition, because they know that this is how they close to Allah spawn tada in this position on a law.

00:17:21--> 00:18:14

Okay, we need to also realize that you know, seeing a lot in the next slide, this is the greatest joy for every believer, seeing a more senior creator seeing our watchmen, Rahim, the Most Merciful in the next slide. This is the greatest blessing the believer will be given in the F era is going to be more love to you than anything you're given in the genre. Everybody looks forward to Jana, you look forward to what you're going to be given in the agenda. But everything in Java is nothing in comparison to the gift and the blessing of saying a lot in the next slide. This is the greatest joy and blessing that Allah will bestow upon the believers like Allah says, Who do we all know? Now?

00:18:15--> 00:18:25

You know, behind now the rock that faces on that day will be full of light and bright and lit up with joy.

00:18:26--> 00:18:36

Behind now they are looking towards the Lord. So Panama, and Panama. So the professor has shown us that.

00:18:37--> 00:19:31

See a law in the next slide. It is it has a link to your friends in dystonia. It has a link to phrase in dystonia, the professor Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells us that very early, you will see your Lord just as you see the moon on a night when the moon is full. And you don't have any difficulty in seeing the moon like just as easy as you can see the moon on a full night with CLI and there's no cloud. That's as that's how easy it's going to be for you to see a lot in the next slide. So he says he says he just had this idea. So if you're able not to miss this is the thread before the sun rises. Talking about the budget pray if you're able to miss not miss the prayer before the

00:19:31--> 00:19:40

sun rises the fudger prayer and if you're able to not miss the the rain before the sunset,

00:19:42--> 00:19:49

prayer, the afternoon prayer then you should do so. So what is this had this show us It shows us that

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

praying your budget prayer like don't be negligent. Don't just wake up and pray your budget at seven o'clock in the morning or eight o'clock in the morning. If you really want to see a law

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

In the next slide, you will take care of your prayers not to pray them, like not to pray them out of their times, not to pray after the sunrise, not to pray after us, you know, towards the sunset or after the sunset, you'll be careful with those prayers because it shows how much you want to see a law in the next life.

00:20:22--> 00:20:53

Now, we have to also realize this sisters that the first thing that a believer is going to be asked about from a man on Yom Okayama is the prayers, the prayers are the first thing, you're not going to be asked to back off first, you're not going to be asked about, you know, other good deeds that you did in this life. First, you're going to be asked about your prayers, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells us in the installer hat for God, and jack

00:20:54--> 00:21:44

was infested that Harbor was there. So he says that if the person's prayers was sound, then he will be successful. He'll be from the successful on your piano. But if his prayers were corrupted, then he will be from the losers on Yom Akiyama. So you have to realize that praise is linked with your overall success. And let me tell you, sisters, that if you see people who go around causing strife in the community, and doing fitna and doing a pressions, let me tell you, there is something wrong with their praise. There is something wrong with their praise. Either they don't pray their prayers on time.

00:21:45--> 00:21:59

Or when they pray them, they're praying and up and down and having no pressure whatsoever. And just, you know, praying them so fast, not praying them in the way that Allah, Allah has ordered because we know that Allah said enough

00:22:01--> 00:22:01


00:22:03--> 00:22:14

If a person is really praying the prayer, focus focusing on they pray when they pray to Allah, knowing that Allah is what she then

00:22:15--> 00:23:03

feeling the presence of standing before a law in their prayer. Okay, if they pray in such a way, how on earth could they leave, they pray, and go and cause fitna in the community back by causing all kinds of strife? No, it can't be possible, because if they knew a lot in their prayer, that we know a lot outside they pray. So we know if someone has doing kinds of corruption in the earth. They don't know a lot in their prayer, there's something very wrong with this person. In a way, they're praying to Allah. And that's what two, three, that when they come on Yom Okayama, it's because there was something wrong with their prayers. This is why other aspects of their trade, the life will also

00:23:03--> 00:23:48

be a failure, as well. So that's why when you get your pre order, you'll see how you become more conscious of Allah in every aspect of your life, it causes you to strive for the hero, because you're conscious, you've got that conscious reminder five times a day, at the minimum, five times a day, of remembering a lot and striving for the era. And so therefore, what does that do? You don't have to stop at prayers, you start looking for other avenues of good deeds. So maybe you start fasting more, maybe you start getting so the more you start trying to help sisters, you improve your improve your behavior, you know you better with your husband, you're better with your children,

00:23:48--> 00:23:53

you're better with your life in general. This is the difference Johnny's and

00:23:54--> 00:23:56

we should be thinking

00:23:57--> 00:24:04

of a person who is really praying the way that Allah has, you know, wants us to stand before Him in the prayer.

00:24:05--> 00:24:19

And the other thing is true that you know, you say you love the rustle. You say you love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you wish to see him in the F era. Isn't that true? You wish to see the profit. So

00:24:22--> 00:24:43

let's look at what did the Prophet said a lot of what I was going to say to one of the companions who wish to be with him in the janma Did he say it's enough for you just to wish? Let's have a look. So as to Panama, Robbie bin Malik, he used to help the Prophet said a lot of what I said an intake he will do what he used to bring the water for him and

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

so a lot of sand in in washing through the window. And when the profits are lower than saw in the face of obey been manic, the sincerity like how much he loves righteous deeds is humbling himself so much

00:25:00--> 00:25:45

For any deed, to get close to Allah, like he's even ready to bring the water to help the process that allowed him washing his feet because of his love for the earth era. And so then the Prophet said a lot while he was sitting, he says to a BA been married, he says to him, asked me what you wish. And so what does rivia bin Malik say? Does he ask him for something from the dunya? Does he ask him for money, because maybe he's not good enough to eat. For him and his family. He says to him, yasumasa loved his son, and I want your company in the JAMA. I just want to be with you in the genre, your Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So what did the Prophet said a lot? What else

00:25:45--> 00:25:47

didn't tell him? What was his advice?

00:25:48--> 00:26:33

Did he tell him That's okay. As long as you love me, you'll be with me or just keep hoping it's alright. He told he told him, help me with yourself, by increasing your food helped me with yourself by increasing your food. We know that the profits that allowed us to make sure fair for us and your machiya he can make the concessions for us. And for his love for us on the Day of Resurrection, he's going to make intercession for his oma for his nation, we know that. But at the same time, if you want to be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the era, if you truly love the Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, as you say, then the way to do that is by increasing your surgery,

00:26:33--> 00:27:03

increasing your Salah, and praying extra prayers and pay and being careful with your prayers. So this is why do sisters, praying, and praying extra prayers is so recommended in Islam, not to just to just depend upon your footprints, but to also increase upon your five prayers by raising awareness and praying extrasolar prayers. Because on your Matsuyama, as we said, the first thing that

00:27:05--> 00:27:13

you'll find Chris, all right, praise first. Now, if your prayers will complete, then you'll be fine.

00:27:15--> 00:27:45

But if there's something lacking in your prayers, there's something deficient in your prayers, they were days where you might have, you know, not paid properly, you have the concentrate at all. So you really got really nothing out of your prayer. You know, things like that, when you miss a few plays here and there, a lot of these little deficiencies that come in the prayers. So that alone will say to us, Malachi, come to the angels look and see their wives and prayers. Well, we can see there.

00:27:46--> 00:27:51

And so, the Malachi cover, look at that person's extra prayers.

00:27:53--> 00:28:38

And we'll see I don't look at the record. And if they find extra credit by extra sort of prayers, extra voluntary prayers, been those prayers will be taken and make up for any deficiencies in the five prayers. And so the prayers will be come to play by that. However, imagine how it's going to be for that person who had negligence in their prayers, but they didn't use to praise to not they didn't use to pray extra prayers were the good at how to make up for the deficiencies in their public praise. So that's why it's encouraged for us to also not just rely only on praying of God prayers, but to try to pray extra sinner prayers as much as we can and we see the righteous, the

00:28:38--> 00:29:00

righteous believers, they use true subpanel or they used to put so many extra prayers. So Pamela how much blessing the head in their days compared to us? Like in the family story? Mm Akhmad, Rahim Allah it's reported that he used to play 100 vodka every single day he has to pay 100 on top of his five

00:29:02--> 00:29:05

that's on top of all his lessons that he has to give and his

00:29:07--> 00:29:23

teaching and, and all the things that he's doing his day he still has time to find to pray 100 rock hard look at us. Well hello and upwards to 1111 struggling just to pray five quick five prayers a day with a Baraka in our lives Panama.

00:29:25--> 00:30:00

The process that allows one day he was sent them he said whoever prays 12 Raka besides default prayers like if I pray to God in a day and night, Allah will build for that person a house in Jannah Allah will do for you a castle in janma How many of you are saving up for a big beautiful house? Anyway nice people. They always wish they can have some beautiful house on a hill looking over beautiful like a beautiful scene and clear the ocean. Looking over a river or like something beautiful

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

to retire to suparna law, why don't we wish for the castle and the alpha which is beyond beyond anything you've ever seen in this dunya Panama all you have to do to get it is just to pray to record to

00:30:19--> 00:30:19


00:30:20--> 00:30:45

Suna before the fetcher, press the morning prayer and fall apart before your midday prayer and to record after it and to record after the sunset prayer and to Raka sky shadow. If you make that as your habit, that's your life savings towards a castle in the next life.

00:30:46--> 00:31:04

You didn't have to work and you know get money for it. You just have to put in your investment every single day of praying you know wifey, it's all it takes from you know my child with insincerity, and will give you the castle in the jungle and shortly

00:31:05--> 00:31:06

on top of that,

00:31:08--> 00:31:21

the prophecy of the lowest and has mentioned to us some specific virtues of some of these prayers mentioned based on a phrase for example, he tells us that the to Wonka before fetcher

00:31:22--> 00:31:29

are better than whatever is in this world. It's better than this world and whatever is it just Chewbacca just

00:31:30--> 00:31:46

units of prayer before your fudger prayer is better for you than everything in this dunya is more precious, and it's worth more than whatever is in this dunya any and this to never ever seen it.

00:31:47--> 00:31:58

Now because the professor knew how precious and DHEA and heavy these prayers work, if you look at him, you see he never ever miss these prayers,

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


00:32:02--> 00:32:10

he never missed them even if he's traveling. Whatever the situation he never misses these truth is true.

00:32:11--> 00:32:17

And that's why this distance as well if the event was cold and you pay your fight

00:32:18--> 00:32:30

it's legislated for you to even pray the sooner after the fact in this case if you couldn't pray for my job because when you go to the mosque for example, you're praying family, the family and they always say

00:32:31--> 00:32:35

you know to pray to Christ by God and if we run out of time to pray

00:32:36--> 00:33:02

it's legislative for you to pray the two sooner after this budget pray in this case not all the time shouldn't be a habit but if we were allowed to make up for it after that, you know to pray after the bunch of prayer and not miss it because of how deep and precious that prayer is. And you know that you know a lot of pray other prayers after Frederick so it's an exception it's an exception to the rule.

00:33:03--> 00:33:51

Okay and then if we look at the process that a lot one a lesson and also he used to take care in praying the fall sooner praise before though, before the midday prayer he used to take great care in pain the fall sooner prayers before the midday prayer to level sisters that if he ever missed them, because he got busy like maybe sometimes people would come to see him and he got delayed. So he missed praying his for sooner prayers before he used to sometimes Qaeda after acid or before acid so he wouldn't use them completely he would make up to the asker he would take care with you know making up for them because he knows the he knows the value of these.

00:33:53--> 00:34:27

And then when the professor lawless and was asked Yaroslav Why are you so careful about these prayers? Why are you so careful about these sort of phrasing for for both people thought he said to the Sahaba sort of long line in the sand he said this is a time when the heavens are open. And I like it for me to be seen. I like it for me to be seen to doing a righteous deed. When the heavens open he wants to be upon a righteous deed when the heavens are open and this is why he has to be so

00:34:29--> 00:34:33

you know diligent in praying these four Sunnah prayers.

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

Okay, and then. Okay, so then this is in relation to the 12 prayers of the day and night they called the robotic prayers why they called robotic press because they connected to the five prayers pacifically specifically connected to the footprints. There are other places we can pray to I'm not going to go into that. Yes, you can pray for our cloud before or after. But it's not included in the robotic okay, but there

00:35:00--> 00:35:18

Other there are other narrations that mentioned and pray to rock out with between every comma. There are many other prayers but we're just talking about the 12 prayers of the day and night this is this is the ones the two before the four before the two of the two of the mother, even the tractor, Alicia

00:35:20--> 00:35:59

another of the press, which should not neglect as well as the width spray. Okay, the woods prayer to pray it either before sleeping, or if we're gonna wake up and pray pm and lay the night prayer, we should pray the Lord's Prayer at the end. And you know, the prophets that allowed us and he told us that, you know, he told us make with, make with because Allah is with, and he loves with in number. Make with with what's mean the literal meaning of which means odds. It means odds. So he said make the trade with praise God pray because law is which he's like he's one Allahu Allahu wa.

00:36:01--> 00:36:11

And he loves, he loves. He loves the odd that he loves. Loves. We see that isn't a 711 odd number. Yeah, and a long time it isn't worth it.

00:36:12--> 00:36:13

lashley killer.

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


00:36:18--> 00:36:46

So the process that allows and is another prayer that the prophets of Allah said he never used to miss it. Each one is traveling, he doesn't miss the woods prayer. And with prayer assistance, you can even pray as one record, even as one record. But the best is to pray as three to pray three Raqqa. And the best is to pray to Lancaster first and do teslin and then one Raka separate that's the best. But you can pray and Iraq are joined together without personally only.

00:36:47--> 00:36:48

Sorry to shop.

00:36:49--> 00:37:10

You can pray three records join together, you don't seem to show one until the last, the last record. That's the second best way to pray, which the way that I'm disliked to pray, which is to pray like Margaret is disliked for you to pray with the with the same way you pay money, but you do do to

00:37:12--> 00:37:15

another of the prayers that's loved by a lot.

00:37:16--> 00:37:33

The prophets that Allah sent him, he advised many of his Sahaba, including Abu hurayrah, Wadi Allahu anhu, and a Buddha and many other of the Sahaba. About to have pray about the Doha prayer, which is the you could say the morning

00:37:36--> 00:37:38

the morning prayer after the sun has risen.

00:37:40--> 00:37:57

And he told he informed us that in every day, there is a solder pad that is due on a person with every day you have a sadhaka a charity that is due on every joint and burn of your body, which equals 367.

00:37:58--> 00:38:01

So he tells us that when you do tests, when you say

00:38:04--> 00:38:13

when you do when you say it's time to laugh at you, when you say to Lee, like you say that, you know the law that when you say

00:38:15--> 00:38:24

right, if you tell someone if you encourage someone to do something good, and remind them of something, that's a Sadako for you, if you

00:38:25--> 00:38:36

get something which is evil, that's a subtle call for you. But what is sufficient to make up for all of that charity is just trying to rock

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


00:38:40--> 00:38:41

This is Islam.

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

So that

00:38:45--> 00:38:47

is a certified equals

00:38:48--> 00:39:14

every single joint of your body. Look how simple you're thanking Allah, for your body. For what, two weeks, just by trade to Raka. It's a sort of cop because everything every blessing Allah has given us the sisters, there's a sadakazu for it. We need to give charity because when you get charity, on what Allah has given you, he blesses you in what he's given you.

00:39:16--> 00:39:18

When you give charity you give

00:39:19--> 00:39:20

on what

00:39:21--> 00:39:42

he increases the blessing in that thing. So if you want this thing in your health, if you want a lot to preserve you, then this is why we should be more careful in praying because you're at a loss of your body. May Allah give us a lot of fear, maybe give us health inshallah, and keep us in a state of health because we know health is the greatest.

00:39:45--> 00:39:54

The professor was saying also he mentioned that the prayer of God is the prayer of the aware being.

00:39:55--> 00:40:00

The prayer of the heart is the prayer of the our being what does it mean? It means

00:40:00--> 00:40:35

Is the prey of bones returned to Allah in repentance? You know, they have that characteristic of turning back to Allah. So when you seek to do hard shows that go from those people who know you've got a lot of gods who is our man or him, and you want to turn to him, he's aware, he's the one who pardons. He's awful, who pardons the sins and panel laws returned back to him in repentance constantly. And Allah loves those who turned back to him in no law,

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

where you keep

00:40:41--> 00:40:53

those who are from the lobby, who constantly turns back to me in repentance, and just turn back to him in general, and they purify themselves constantly.

00:40:54--> 00:40:55

So, so this is,

00:40:56--> 00:41:24

this is counting the virtues of the Buddha. And then of course, the best phrase, of the fun prayers are the light prayers. These are the heaviest, you know, karma in the scales. After the after the day, the depth of prayers, they should try to pray pmla, which is the night prayers and the best time to pray. pmla isn't the last third of the night, this is the best time to pray.

00:41:27--> 00:41:47

So there's many extra prayers in general, you can be playing all day and all night, there appears all times of day and night to Panama, we restrict ourselves thinking that it's only five prayers, but there's so much more we could be doing. If we want to seek meaning to Allah. And if we want to be close to the prophets that allowed us and in the next life.

00:41:50--> 00:41:53

The last thing we need to speak about today, which is really important,

00:41:54--> 00:41:58

is about having for sure in our prayers,

00:41:59--> 00:42:09

having humility and humbleness and feeling, you know, feeling that we're standing up for law in our prayers, we're having submission in our praise to Allah.

00:42:11--> 00:42:27

This is something we need to pay great attention to, because this is the prayer was not prescribed upon us, just as a mechanical action. And that's why we see what we did before. Why does the people not have wireless was so weakened very men today.

00:42:28--> 00:42:36

Why are the Muslims so weak in their Eman today, because prayers became a mechanical action for them.

00:42:38--> 00:42:43

And the prayer without fusuma is like a body without a soul.

00:42:45--> 00:42:51

The prayer without for sure, is like a body without a soul. It's not a life.

00:42:53--> 00:43:13

Okay? This is why it doesn't have effect on them. They don't get the benefits, they don't get the true benefits of praying due to this. And the process that allowed us and when he saw someone rushing in their prayer, not taking their time in their bowing, not taking their time in that sense. just picking up the floor.

00:43:14--> 00:43:19

Quickly like that, like you know, just for one second touching the floor as it was people

00:43:20--> 00:43:22

are not really not staying.

00:43:24--> 00:43:41

Not becoming what's the word stable in the, you know, bowing. And they stood up and they don't even make their backbone straight. They just come up quickly and go straight down. He told the person who did this go back for you have not prayed.

00:43:42--> 00:44:12

How can you get for sure. If you're just taking in your prayer, there's no way. So obviously if you're praying like that, you're you're praying a very mechanical way. It's an absolutely no effect on you whatsoever. That's why the profits are low. So I'm told the man who did that, go back for you have not prayed. It's like you haven't prayed at all. The level of talent told us that the from the characteristics of the successful believers if you want success as a believer, he tells us what that

00:44:13--> 00:44:17

means know, I let enough instalaci him harsh.

00:44:19--> 00:44:30

But those believers will be successful who have pursued in their case, this is the path to success. If you want to be successful, it's through having sure in your prayer.

00:44:31--> 00:44:59

And upon law, we all we can say is a law he would like to allow we can only complain of ourselves when we compare our prayers, our province of pray to the prayer of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And as the harbor and the righteous sellers like their prayer was the difference between their prayer and our prayer is like the difference between the heaven and earth are more like the quality of prayer they had like we see the effect of the pray on them.

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

How many times the prophets that allows them was prayed and his tears were dripping down his blessing bead onto the floor Subhanallah help from the the effect of the prayer on himself. You know, they mentioned that they would, they would hear him crying in his prayer like the sound of a pot when it's boiling. That's the sound is coming into his chest. The law was sent in from the shore in his prayer, and radi Allahu anhu. And he stands in front of a law. You know, the reason what I didn't used to like to make a buck the man, because no sooner this reading outside, he breaks down in tears before a law. He was so soft hearted. That's why sometimes I would say no, we don't want

00:45:44--> 00:46:24

Oh, back to the US in prayer, because as soon as he starts praying, he straightaway starts crying, he makes everybody feel Oh, stop crying, you know, it's powerful. This was the difference in their prayers. You know, it's Panama, like even these stories, talk about how one of them will take will go and look at their face. They face has become white and shamed. Why? Because you know why, because they're having all of a law like they know they're about to meet a lot of this. So affected by knowing about stand in front of a law that you have hold has been in the heart, knowing the right to stand before law. But look at us before but to pray with joking around taking it easy. We're not

00:46:24--> 00:46:36

we're not tripping ourselves up. We're not gearing ourselves up for the serious moment when we get down to fall law. And that's why the pain is coffee on us. It's like we don't get the effect.

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

And, you know,

00:46:42--> 00:46:49

if we look at the free of the sellers, you know, the sad thing is, that's what it used to look so much food they pray.

00:46:50--> 00:46:59

They use too long for the prayers long he mentioned that when was the last time we load for a prayer like we see anything I can't wait to I pray

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

they actually use too long for the prayers. Can you mention one of them, he said there was not one prayer that I performed, except that I would look forward to praying it since the time that I embraced Islam. From the time he had become Muslim. There wasn't one prayer that he didn't look forward to. He couldn't wait for the moment. Just to stand before I was a little bit different difference. Why? Because the quality was completely different.

00:47:31--> 00:47:43

You know, it's kind of lost sisters. The sad thing is, when they had hardship, they had their prayer. When we have hardship, let's be honest, what do we have?

00:47:44--> 00:48:28

I'm not putting people down. But this is the reality. If we go to antidepressants, they had antidepressants in their time. They didn't have antidepressants. I know there is a need sometimes but I'm not gonna try and put someone down. If they look at the reality. The reality is if you're if you've got a prayer to that level of strength, honestly, you would not need antidepressants, we could overcome the positivity that you get out of that prayer of being close to Allah and overcoming you know, escaping really truly escaping from the dunya he will overcome any negative feelings they would override negative feelings or or anything that hardship that is a reality. So it's very hard.

00:48:29--> 00:48:49

It's not easy to reach that level. But we can if we ask a lot of Allah makes it easy for us if we make, we can ask Allah to help us to achieve that level. That's why the prophet SAW Some said that alarm made the prayer, quote, whiny, he made it the coolness and happiness of my eyes. That was his escape.

00:48:50--> 00:49:37

How is it that the Prophet says and bury children, he buried with his own hands, even why they died in his lifetime. He went through so many tragedy and so many hard, sad times. But yet, he's always got a smile on his face. He went through tragedies that me and you have never gone through such tragedies and hardships. The whole world is against the rules against you now, if you feel like the media is against you, the politicians are against you. You feel like the world is caving in on us as Muslims. Well. mahila is nothing in comparison to what was going on in the present when they were going through the hard days of Mecca when the whole world was against them. A couple of uomini in a

00:49:37--> 00:49:50

whole world of disbelief. Imagine that and you're the one who is on your shoulders to bring toe heat and bring the light and slammed his whole world unused.

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

He mentioned in your eyes family even it's against you everyone's against Jews Panama. You've only got a law

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

to kind of know what I was giving you from a few of the believers, so imagine that but yet he's always got a smile on his face. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam, what is the key because

00:50:14--> 00:50:18

the revelation for a lot of Christ lifting his heart every day, every night,

00:50:20--> 00:50:24

we're on. And we can leave capsules true if we close to the port.

00:50:25--> 00:50:34

Okay, we can leave ourselves as well, if we always close to the Quran, and his prayer, which is connection with Allah, he's getting that real connection with Eliza.

00:50:36--> 00:51:01

So this is the difference distance, the three was their relief from the stress their relief from the hardship that he had other forms of relief. So they had only one thing to turn to. And you know, that was the best thing is but but because we have alternatives now, we might not put so much emphasis or effort is trying to get to relief in other ways.

00:51:04--> 00:51:10

Okay, so let's talk also now about how to get for sure how can go some tips on how to get for sure.

00:51:11--> 00:51:21

One of the ways is to make yourself feel that this could be your last prayer. If you think about it, every one of us is going

00:51:22--> 00:51:23

to pray.

00:51:25--> 00:51:54

Every one of us is going to die between true prayers, the prayer you previously paint, and you're about to cry. So which one is it going to be? Allahu Allah, we don't know, which is the prayer that can be our last prayer for our life. So if you think about that, and you think this would be my last prayer, I'm ever going to pray, this can help you inshallah, to have more for sure, because you want your last prayer to be the best.

00:51:57--> 00:52:07

And then on top of that, sisters, we need to try to make ourselves feel when we're praying, as if you can see a law.

00:52:08--> 00:52:18

And if you can't get that feeling, then develop the feeling yourself, a law can see you. And God will the law can attach

00:52:22--> 00:52:59

to worship Allah as if you can see him. And if you can't see him, then he can see you develop that feeling yourself that he is in, you're standing in front of him. He's watching you right now you are communicating with him. And ask yourself these sisters, how much are you longing to say Allah in the next life? How much are you longing to meet with a law in the next life? If you can try to think that each time that you go to your friend, you're meeting with a lot in this dunya before the era, you're meeting with a wall

00:53:00--> 00:53:10

before the FCR says you want your meeting with a law to be a beautiful meeting, start by making your meeting in this

00:53:11--> 00:53:13

meeting. That's why

00:53:15--> 00:53:23

he said, there's two stations for a person. If one of them is good, the other will be good as well.

00:53:25--> 00:53:38

So he said, and he says one of them is ruined, the other one will be ruined. So they said what are those two stations, he said, the first one is the person's pray in this world.

00:53:39--> 00:54:13

And the second is he's been brought to account by Allah on the Day of Resurrection. So if you, you know can seek Nina's to Allah in your prayer and be close to Allah in your prayer, then this is a good sign for you inshallah, for your meeting with a law in the era when you stand before a law on your piano. So the quality of your prayer is unique to how easy it's going to be for you when you meet with the law on the Day of Resurrection. Look at it like that as well.

00:54:15--> 00:54:25

The other thing, the message of a loss or Larson has told us as well is you know, if you get the shakes and stuff to come to you, you find your your mind has been distracted and you don't want to do what

00:54:27--> 00:54:27

you say

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

in your prayer, and you turn slightly to the left and do this three times. So you just say great foods with the shapes are as with with a lot from the shape on and you blow like dry three times.

00:54:45--> 00:54:59

When you do when you come to bow make yourself feel how Allah is Allah when he is feel the majesty of a law before you feel the greatness of a law before you and so that when you feel the great

00:55:00--> 00:55:34

Miss Gloria, voila. You want to glorify Him, subpoena subpoena, subpoena resolving subpoena resolving. And then when you go into such depth, you feel your corners to allow your humbleness. How much are you in need for a law? If Allah leads you for one second, you won't be existing your your brain can be cut off. Don't you realize Every Breath You Take is from the mercy of a law, every beat of your heart is by the mercy of a law. Can you control your breathing

00:55:35--> 00:55:58

Can you can throw your hands so you are in the hands of a wall. A second you can cut off your breath, you can cut off the beating of your heart so your heart is beating by the mercy of a law your breathing is by the mercy of the law your brain operating is by the mercy of Allah May Allah protect us. At the moment, a lot can take our brain away from us.

00:56:00--> 00:56:26

Us Europe galantamine and keep all types of diseases and illnesses away from us, but a moment a lot can take away your sanity. With all by the mercy of a law if you think about how much your need for a law to protect you how much your need for love to preserve you in this life and then say to partner with Allah Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah glorify him from your hearts.

00:56:28--> 00:56:34

Humble yourself in your job and call upon him by his beautiful names. Make glad

00:56:35--> 00:56:49

to take the opportunity to speak Nina's trauma in your sector. By calling upon him asking, release your burdens, you have problems, release your problems onto your prayer mats.

00:56:50--> 00:57:32

Joint like they say don't release your problems on your pillow. What is the use, release the problems onto your onto your surgeon you're into release your problems in your suit onto your prayer mat because that is of use to you. Whereas crying on your prayer mat, praying, praying on your pillow. What does that do? Nothing. This is a true way to pray to Allah subhanaw taala that and then if you pray, imagine if you pray to Allah, can you imagine don't? Don't you think that when you pray like that, when you leave your prayer, you're gonna feel different. Of course you are, you're going to feel uplifted, you're going to feel like my life is worth maybe I can go on. Allah has given me

00:57:32--> 00:57:38

the strength to go on, I can still keep going. You know, that's what the prayer is going to do for us, Panama.

00:57:39--> 00:58:06

Okay, so Panama, like I said to you, the prayer, without for sure, is like a prayer without a soul. It's like a prayer without life in it. So if we want to make we want our prayers, and we want to get the good effects of the prayer that benefit us in this life and the era, then we have to pay attention to appraisers focus on our prayers, make our prayers a priority for ourselves sisters.

00:58:08--> 00:58:59

So panel, I asked a lot as well. July I asked a lot of arm to Allah, that he makes us steadfast in our prayers. I asked him to make us firm in praying our prayers in their times. I asked him that he doesn't they asked me clicks our prayers and you know, to miss our prayers. I asked him to make us always remember him. There has always been a state of remembering him to go to bed remembering him to wake up remembering him. I asked to borrow with Allah to help us to remember he asked our prayers, and to try to always be in a state of remembering him day and night, never forgetting Him. May Allah help us to meet our prayers and means for us to relieve our hardships. Maybe help us to be

00:58:59--> 00:59:41

close to him through our prayers, so it will be close to him on yamaki ama, I asked him to help us to pray more prayers. So we can be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the genital truth also Allah, may he help us to live our whole life upon prayers, never neglecting our prayers, until we take our final breath in this life. May Allah help us to meet here in a state and to die upon a state of 911 gold bar of crystal hajima have a good ending. Maybe give us all the best of endings and maybe unite us all with him in the general dose of Allah

00:59:44--> 00:59:45

Subhana Colombia.

00:59:49--> 00:59:51
