00:02:36--> 00:02:38

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:02:50--> 00:02:51

Hello

00:03:37--> 00:03:38

sauna

00:03:48--> 00:03:49

sauna

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

Hey,

00:04:09--> 00:04:10

hey

00:04:54--> 00:04:58

in Alhamdulilah in America who want to stay in or who want to study who want to stop fear of

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

Korea

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

proscenium and sejati Imani nemea de la dama De La MaMa you will follow her Diarra, who was shadow La la la la la de la sharika wa shadow, Muhammad Abdul Rasul. All praise due to Allah and His praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family, his companions and his followers until the day of judgment. I agree with this set of laws, the only one worthy of worship and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is lost on Final messenger. My brothers and sisters

00:05:32--> 00:05:37

happen to be reading a little bit about business. And one of the things that caught my eyes,

00:05:38--> 00:05:41

the whole concept of bonuses and businesses,

00:05:43--> 00:05:51

especially those who own companies, or managers, you know that bonuses means a lot for any business to be successful.

00:05:53--> 00:05:58

You know, it shows employees that their companies care about them.

00:05:59--> 00:06:09

These bonuses, it motivates them. It attracts quality, talent, good employees,

00:06:10--> 00:06:13

bonuses, it improves and motivate

00:06:14--> 00:06:43

people. And actually, there is some studies I was reading about how to improve even the moral character of the person, how its impact on the person's character at work. It brings basically your business to a closer to success. But as you expect, I'm not here to speak about business. But I was thinking about the basically the blast bonuses.

00:06:45--> 00:07:13

I was thinking about this concept because this concept of bonus and why people love bonus, it's something natural, don't you agree? Who is here don't want to have a bonus. Every one of us. You know, we all would love to have extra either money or extra bonuses comes from anything cook, maybe a gift somebody give you. You know, even as a teacher, I know my students love my exams. Because after I finished my exams, I put Bonus questions.

00:07:14--> 00:07:32

My team my students loves that I didn't know anyone go to school, he loves that as well. Because you know what, you can make up whatever you miss in the exam by doing these bonuses, basic questions, or assignments. If you do it, you can take extra four points or five. And

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

rarely, but happened that people will get

00:07:38--> 00:07:54

more than 100 points in my exams, you know, 100 510 100 law. So I'm happy to see I'm with this concept of bonds. This is very natural. And asked myself why it is basically

00:07:55--> 00:08:16

natural why people love bonuses. Because bonus for me it means that I'm growing extra money so I grow my income, you know, and basically a growth and that's something natural and human being that the growth also extra provides a sense of security.

00:08:17--> 00:08:30

the more money you have, you have extra sense of security financially, you know, more questions, extra bonus questions, assignments, sense of security that I can do a good grade and that exam.

00:08:31--> 00:08:34

Extra means I can use it to make up what I mess.

00:08:36--> 00:08:36

Okay.

00:08:38--> 00:09:17

Or I lost before. Extra means I feel special. When someone gives me something extra, a gift, a special gift and extra attention. You know, that's make you feel special. So that's why it's so natural for people to love bonuses. Employees love bonuses, his students love bonuses, even your spouse will love a bonus guess your spouse would love in that extra attention that you give him or you give her everybody will love that extra things to be done to them.

00:09:18--> 00:09:27

And when I look at it was thinking about this and they look at what the blessing are the blessings bonuses that we have as Muslims from Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:09:28--> 00:09:59

There is a whole concept it's cold in Islam and no often the extra volunteer act, these extra things that Allah Subhana Allah giving us the opportunity to do not only to pray the five time prayers, but others extra prayers. And if you look in every aspect, in Sharia, in every aspect in Sharia, you will have that concept of extras. Extra no extra prayers extra fasting extra had extra aroma. You can do multiple times had to

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

Rama the washroom is one in your lifetime, once in your lifetime

00:10:05--> 00:10:22

and also when it comes even to interacting with people, there is a minimum requirement of how should we treat each others but so much extra things was given to us and will be encouraged to take advantage of it and to basically fulfilling when it comes to how we deal with each other's

00:10:24--> 00:10:57

why when you look at how the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the early generations of Islam especially if you look at the duration of Mohammed Salim the companions themselves how much that the cared about this extra volunteer actor fortune about these basically blessed bonuses that his gift from Allah Subhana Allah does you will be amazed how she feels sad oh she felt not sad she felt worried about the process and that you spent so much of his night praying

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

as extra prayer that's not the fault of the logic prayer.

00:11:03--> 00:11:50

The understood that meaning very well the concept of bonuses that you know that concept in relation to the dounia the connected it to the aka the new that bonus it means make them special, make them closer, make them close up to success. It's a sense of security for them. It's to make it whatever was missing from their by that and from there for them from their YG back. They understood that when Allah subhanho wa Taala ordain these extra volunteer acts. It's because he wants to benefit us like these bonuses because in the basis of them said that the law said chemical Buhari had Amata mdbc in a habit in a name of Tara to LA

00:11:52--> 00:11:58

that's nothing my serving can please me with more than the things that I made it obligatory upon him or her.

00:11:59--> 00:12:02

Then what what Masada Abdi

00:12:04--> 00:12:27

had a bow, and my servant will continue to try to please me by using these bonuses by using these extra volunteer deeds that Allah Subhana Allah encouraged us to do this extra Salah, this extra fasting, this extra set of donations, and the province of Williamson that Allison had tapped him.

00:12:28--> 00:12:33

And in this case, I will love that person, kind of

00:12:34--> 00:12:43

a short note and to have laser focus and to hit the point is to be loved by Allah, not only to love Allah,

00:12:44--> 00:12:48

not only to be loved to be loved by Allah, that's the main point.

00:12:49--> 00:12:58

A lot of people claim that they love Allah. But does Allah Subhana Allah love them by do the earn the love of philosophy with Adam, that's another story.

00:12:59--> 00:13:18

The understood that these extra deeds and these no often are an opportunity for them to elevate their status and gentlemen, to raise their basically station or place in general, and to get more and more of the reward in the hereafter.

00:13:19--> 00:13:27

Listen to this amazing example, which is ignored all the allow and can use solely allergenic as a human serif. When I

00:13:29--> 00:13:50

used to pray in the janazah, and when the generals are finished, he will go home he will not follow the janazah thinking that this is the sinner, let only the family bury the person, the family of the deceased, the very the person who didn't need to follow it. And he didn't know anything in regard to this visit son of a virtue of following that funeral.

00:13:51--> 00:13:56

So I'm going to give him a pass set. Our sitting with Abdullayev neuroma one day

00:13:57--> 00:14:05

and kebabs Sora hubbub was coming for part A Abdullah Omar

00:14:07--> 00:14:24

Abu Abu hurayrah Did you hear what I was saying? a Beretta claiming that he's heard the prophets Allah Allah Allah He was sending them man hanayama generosity min beta was Allah Allah sumati to defend. Can Allah Pirata Nieminen

00:14:25--> 00:14:32

coo Loki Ratan mithila woman Sala la Mirage caribou missed it.

00:14:35--> 00:14:50

He said that the firm said if you follow the journals and you pray on it, and you follow it until it's buried, you will take to pee rot the size of each one of them like the mountain but you pray on it only and you don't follow it until it will be buried. You get only one.

00:14:51--> 00:14:53

Then if you remember they allow an

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

Ursula miromar hubub an era Asia? Yes, no he told her back if I will

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

rated this, let's double check, because I never heard of this before. So he asked come back to go ask actually.

00:15:08--> 00:15:39

So he went to asking you about what's going on under rated that the prophets of Salaam said he came back. And the whole time had been Ramadan, the alarm and was holding pebbles in the sand of the mustard in his hand and keep moving it from one hand to another, which shows a sense of a stress. You know, he's anxious to know, what's the answer. So we'll come back came back to him. He said, she told me the same thing about the low and told us are narrated.

00:15:40--> 00:15:51

Had the veteran even handed me here. She told me the same thing. Then he'd been around a lot and he took this footballs and he throws in the ground and he said, Come for lahtinen arrabiata kathira

00:15:52--> 00:16:05

He said, I missed so many parents. I missed so many opportunities. I have so many words by not doing that. Carla no Rahim Allah that shows you how much they care.

00:16:07--> 00:16:14

They love to do the good deeds and for laboring and the oil I have bought in a year. I happen in DVR de

00:16:15--> 00:16:26

la the most beloved something the most beloved thing to me when the night comes not because sleep no because I pray that's the best thing in this life.

00:16:28--> 00:16:43

That's why when you hear that when he was dying, crying they said Why are you crying? He said I'm not crying because I'm afraid of death or worried about this live or anything like that. Kind of intimate upkeep is often Allah Sonia Salah.

00:16:44--> 00:16:49

I'm praying because I'm going to miss that extra prayer or the prayer and the first thing that they used to do

00:16:53--> 00:17:29

the understand that these extra deeds, it will make up whatever missed from the input from their obligatory active portions. And that shows you that come clear in one of the handy thing Debbie's also one of the same of the elements of whatever reported they tend to be so seldom said the first thing that you will be asked about in the Day of Judgment. A woman who has a mobile app do not mean m&e aside the first thing that you will be asked about in the day of judgment from your actions is the salaat if it's good, but after how energy is successful, no worry about him.

00:17:31--> 00:17:38

We're in festival Cabo hustle. If it is corrupt, and not good is a loser or she's a loser.

00:17:40--> 00:17:57

For Indian tourism infinity if it's not complete is incomplete. Pilar booboo, Holly abdomen totowa look maybe as a volunteer prayers that can make up whatever missing from the Salah. Whatever missing from his saliva saliva is incomplete.

00:17:59--> 00:18:21

Then, through my cool new FISA, Emily HCA data, and that's how the case in every obligatory so the first thing and the head and the owner and the socket, so everything that you do extra will make up whatever missing from this. So moolah roofie. Bertie, Emily mithila dannic, heads reported by Chairman

00:18:22--> 00:19:00

and it is sound heavy. That's why lambertini Rahim Allah mentioned something very unique. He said it in Tamia. And maybe so Samson veritably hurayrah parlay, silicon insalata illa Moroccan tamina your salon you have from your salon, whatever, you're able to concentrate and focus. And so you pray and you only get from yourself 50% the process of themself 30% 10% 70% these volunteer prayers will make up whatever missing from the 5030 That's why you should care so much about these volunteer prayers.

00:19:02--> 00:19:10

Maybe your calculation of the cause not accurate, but all the support and charity will definitely make up what was missing from it.

00:19:12--> 00:19:16

Today, I would like to get your attention

00:19:17--> 00:19:26

or you direct your attention to something from this extra bonuses that a lot giving us. Maybe we should care more about it.

00:19:27--> 00:19:29

Unfortunately, among us,

00:19:30--> 00:19:34

people who used to care about it so much, but not anymore.

00:19:40--> 00:19:44

And unfortunately, the case is worst when it comes to origin young generation.

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

Even though I'm 100% positive, and surely everyone in this mastered, who's above 30 years old, if I asked him or her about this particular extra prayers

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

He will tell me that his parents were consistent in praying it

00:20:05--> 00:20:16

but they are not just one generation above us and now the next generation our children are completely almost neglecting it.

00:20:17--> 00:20:18

Don't care about it

00:20:20--> 00:20:37

which it came in say Muslim mean anything not man if he said that he heard else said had definitely am Besa ignore Abu Sufyan or submit to Omaha Viva la de la, Mini.

00:20:39--> 00:21:02

All these narrators saying we heard Habiba the process Alan's wife saying, I heard the prophets of Salaam said, Man sunless Natasha taraka who ever pray 12 Raka for Yeoman weleda in 24 hours booni Allah, Allah who will be hidden away to fill gender? Allah will bill for such person a house agenda, call it Habiba Mojave

00:21:03--> 00:21:42

Allah tala Hema Tara tahune among the Senate to condemn in isolation so let me since since that day, I heard the President said that I never missed a day in my life unless I prayed to Raka or embassy and since I heard him Habiba told me that he will I never missed a day I must say prayed that will occur then I'm gonna have now said since embassy told me about this hadith I never missed a day without praying 12 Raka then in Malaga, Salim said since amrani, I was told me this hadith I never missed these 12 Raka in a single day in my life.

00:21:46--> 00:21:53

I'm wondering who today can say the same. Since I heard this today from chef Woody, I would never miss to have Rakhi day.

00:21:55--> 00:22:26

This honey, there's a lot of info on the massage and for a lot of things we can learn from it. Look at how the scholars rahimullah live the early generations care about to be consistent in their deeds, anything that they heard that the sooner they will immediately try to do it immediately will be committed to it because they understand what ally invited them to wasabi Buddha, Marathi Morocco was typical Herat. They rush to do the right thing.

00:22:27--> 00:23:11

second issue, are these 12 Rockers, restricted specified and Sharia or any 12 rockets? Like let's say now after so do you pray 12 rockets? Will you get very word of it? The answer is yes. It is not restricted by a specific time. It's any 12 Raka that you pray in the day, you will get very word of it. That's some of the scholars said that. Other scholars said no. These 12 rockers in particulars are what's known as a sinner rotten. The Cinder that is connected to an obligatory prayer. Are you ready to send me a sinner? Roger, the most paseka bharatavani be amarin watching

00:23:12--> 00:23:18

the sunon are this the volunteer prayers that shouldn't be associated with the obligatory prayers?

00:23:19--> 00:23:26

In what are they? What are these cylinders the processor that used to care to pray them constantly.

00:23:28--> 00:23:49

There is a debate about what they are but I will choose the most famous opinions with the majority of the scholars agreed upon which is came in handy. Abdullah asked the law about the 12 Raka. Then she told him they are like this canon abuse Allah Allah do you send them pray before the two rockers and after law two records.

00:23:51--> 00:24:28

And in one duration he saw she saw for like as before and after the two rockets. Then after mobile two rockets and after Isha two rockets. And before February two rockets total is 12. And some elements it only 10 because of the other narrations because also the amount of the alliances are often omitted. But anyway, the 12 block added these are the zeros if you consistently are consistent and doing them. Definitely, definitely that's well guarantee you that adger that you heard the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said

00:24:30--> 00:24:30

in another point.

00:24:32--> 00:24:49

Another point also said, Do I have to be consistent on them to get the job or even if I do it once in my lifetime, and you don't have to make 12 rock every single day to get that house antenna or even if I did it one day, my life.

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

She

00:24:51--> 00:24:53

believes it has to be consistent.

00:24:55--> 00:24:57

In another word, you only have one house

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

and that's only one house.

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

If you're consistent during the course of your life, praying to Raka every day,

00:25:05--> 00:25:20

and his opinion comes based on the duration and tirmidhi and in Messiah and others, men thought, but I listen to a Ashoka frame and half of those who consistent those who constantly praying to Africa every day.

00:25:21--> 00:25:38

But other scholars didn't understand that from the Hadith, and many of them didn't understood that bad and other ones did. The heavy they said, any 12 Raka doesn't need to be consistent as long as you do to one day so you get the idea. So in other words, you can have a house every day built for you.

00:25:39--> 00:25:53

If you are doing this every day, and that's the position of chef I'm with me Rahim Allah to Allah and the word half of the author Bara it means he cared to do it in that day. He's consistent in that day on the 12th Okay, doesn't mess them

00:25:55--> 00:26:34

Okay, another point in this heading is there is any other sinner that we should care about other than the one I just mentioned had it the two before federal four before World War Two after the war, and there is nothing for ourselves and two after after a yes in Nabi sallallahu wasallam was so consistent insalata Witter Why don't we call it variety because it's not attached to solid Asia usually whichever is later on after solid Russia not like the way we do it now, but you just not connected to solid Russia itself. Otherwise in the midst of so never miss Whitten traveling or residence, so a lot of setup, even if it's

00:26:36--> 00:26:40

even if it's whatever account, you pray, coordination out to

00:26:41--> 00:26:57

make it even a joint account. So 13579, whatever you want, you pray, as long as odd number is there is any other Sinan that we should care a lot about. There is so many but if there is one, I want to point it out today won't be

00:26:59--> 00:27:05

after the sunrise to rock as to pray. And in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:27:06--> 00:27:14

order to care to praise auto everyday Panasonic halevi Vitara women, Sameera kata yoga

00:27:17--> 00:27:31

and no doubt the best of all the sunon erotic sinitic federal Navy sankaty Junior mafia, these turaga before 5g are better than whatever in this world. The process of them said that signal

00:27:33--> 00:27:42

I asked Allah spirit Allah to make us among those who hold into this cylinder robot and to revival that cancer that we care about the signal of the solid

00:27:43--> 00:27:45

Masato Mr Romani, welcome

00:27:49--> 00:27:55

hamdulillah salat wa salam ala mandana via by the way that my dear brothers and sisters

00:27:56--> 00:28:08

there is a very big difference between those who constantly pray their volunteer prayers, the sonority but they know after these bonuses that Allah give us and also don't

00:28:09--> 00:28:11

just think about it this way.

00:28:12--> 00:28:14

Because some people number works with them better.

00:28:16--> 00:28:23

If for one year, you are consistently praying to a broker every day, this student provides every single day.

00:28:24--> 00:28:37

So that's a and b. A pray this soon as every day be doesn't in the end of the year after 12 months, you know what's the difference between them 4320 rockhouse.

00:28:38--> 00:28:46

The one who prays he had added to his account 4320 accounts.

00:28:47--> 00:28:54

Those who pray which are even if it's one worker, the difference is 365 Records extra.

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

If you pray the Torah

00:28:58--> 00:29:10

that's what 730 Raka extras, then those who don't. If you do this, which is very minimum that means 5415 Drucker

00:29:12--> 00:29:13

the difference that's one year

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

what that means

00:29:17--> 00:29:22

you know what that means? It means that every rock has two searches.

00:29:24--> 00:29:34

At means the total of scheduled for that here is 10,830 searches. And in the visa sanlam set for each center our issue one level

00:29:37--> 00:29:41

that's 10,830 levels up

00:29:42--> 00:29:46

just for one year to be consistent in your volunteer prayers.

00:29:49--> 00:29:58

Refer Basha. Can you imagine you and your spouse, you and your son? You and your friend. See how the difference

00:30:02--> 00:30:15

If I go to these business owners here, this is this master. And the first one offered me a salary of 100,000. And the other one offer me a salary of 200,000. Who would I go with

00:30:17--> 00:30:20

in one year and make 200,000 in one year and make 100,000

00:30:22--> 00:30:49

has a lot of a lot of reward that we missing. And all it takes is to be consistent. So I hope today that we just rethink about that, how much are we missing from these Salawat the volunteer prayers that we should pray before Salah or after the slaughter video, care about you and your children. Remember, it is from the way of Mohammed Salah Lord isn't enough to kind of sudden rush to it. Don't delay it.

00:30:50--> 00:30:55

Don't have them until 200 or zero, whatever from it you can do do.

00:30:56--> 00:31:03

You know be in a company of people who remind you of this. Please make sure that you tell your kids to pray send them

00:31:04--> 00:31:16

make sure you tell your friends to pray sydnor if you hang out together in your prayer ship together before everybody leaves say let's pray center before we leave, we are having a dinner or somebody's house, make sure that we encourage them to person.

00:31:17--> 00:31:20

Make sure to come into the mustard so you can pray your son

00:31:21--> 00:31:25

even in a salon or den for us to make it up if we miss it.

00:31:27--> 00:31:37

Remember, it's an opportunity to raise your level agenda and to make up what is missing from your Salah Kedah program your mind that it is part of your Salah.

00:31:39--> 00:31:45

Read more about how setup how much they care about praying their sin and their extra prayers.

00:31:46--> 00:32:28

Make sure that you ask Allah subhana wa tada to help you and you get addicted to sugar isn't a valid to perfect is a bad and part to perfecting the evanna perfecting the salon is to select sin that is attached to it. I asked last panaderia department a minimum income when you have a few dollar an hour when you need to know Yeah, you have to Hannah Ababa Part One your Salah Helena ask Allah subhanaw taala to make the act of worship easy for us and easy to do it easy to commit to it and ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our hearts to do what is right and to open our mind to see what is correct and to give us the will and determination to hold into your straight path until we die. ask
