Wa salatu salam O Allah, Allah, Mo Selena de la Mohammed a
soft v woman sada je
in de la tres due to Allah subhana wa Tada.
May the peace and blessings be upon his final messenger Mohammed salam,
Salam Alikum warahmatu light.
Before I begin, there's just a few things I wanted to mention.
And Firstly, and lastly that All praise is due to a loss of penalty island that he has gathered us here
to talk about what is of course the most important topic. And it's a solid prayer and its importance.
It is the first time that Allah subhanaw taala has enabled me to come to this Masjid is not really that far away from me.
So I would like to thank Chicago summit and the committee for agreeing
to come this agreement for me to come which is a good sign inshallah Tada.
And also, I would like to do recognition as well, to where, you know, recognition is do
that, I think maybe this is the closest I've sat with on something like a platform like this. For more than eight years, I mean, close to 10 years,
is 10 years ago, I sat in a similar position to chef toffee, and like this disposition, because we were at the same clubs. And I think I look back to what it was then and what it is now on the achievement. Of course, the greatest blessings are from our sponsor, firstly, but the way the Cheeseman that allows which has enabled chefs will seek to do really in establishing mercy mission. And all the sub projects have gone under that like there's a national as a car Foundation, and cultural force, which is one themselves, Ward, Chef, he can mail us at all rural there is structures, and all of those who have participated in such a noble effort.
Before I started to, before they get into the topic about the habits
of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam concerning the soul. Specifically, I think, there was a few things I wanted to mention. So as we can show the added benefit from is beautiful and best of guidance concerning the song.
And first I want you to note the importance of following the habits of loss, the loss of a lot.
And knowing the importance of following is is fun, Elisa, especially in a time where now that all of us we are claiming to have a loss of a lot more money. And then we will demonstrate our love to the prophet Elisha sermon a number of different ways.
But the most important criterion in showing our love and demonstrating our love for a single loss
is adhering to his authentic self.
And Alexander Rather, he tells us for income come to him boon Allah, let's say if indeed you love a lot, today Rudy Viva Kamala, then follow me and he will attain the love of entrepreneurs.
So following the shooting of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is a means for us to gain the love of Allah genuine.
This is the ultimate goal for us to gain the love of Allah subhanaw taala and in turn, attain the ultimate reward by being entered into the paradise.
So May Allah subhanaw taala give us the success and the guidance to follow your authentic self.
A man he was praying in the master
and he prayed after maybe one node example he prayed after the sunrise. And he was offering a number of frustrations and Rahu and remember was one of the
sides of the Messiah.
He rebuked him for doing this review of timber praying this time.
And then the man said are you rebuking me Are you telling me off because I'm praying is that I'm not rebuking you for the fact that you
But I review Can you the fact that you are going against the Sunnah of Mohammed Salam audience and
so even though that the action the person is claiming to be correct may be correct,
but the timing of it and how you're going to do that is of the utmost importance.
So how you demonstrate your following in the sermon of Rasulullah sallallahu Alif seven, is of the utmost importance.
Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from
the beginning of his prophethood to the end, you will find that the solid that the prayer has an extremely important significance.
That is said that, when I'm also penalty, Allah revealed, yeah, you have
all the one who is covered in garments that he said to his wife, Khadija.
That is it time for rest, the time for sleeping and relaxing is
calling for me.
Allegedly, rather than commanded the purpose of a logo, I decided to stand up and to warn his people.
From this time, until the very last moments of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi salam, you will find that the prayer and everything that was around the prayer
was given priority.
And the focus was on the prayer.
I'm not going to go into the wider aspects of the importance of friends, and that will come later.
But I wanted to mention the guidance of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam within the prayer itself.
Then if you go through the prayer, from the very beginning, it is not just a set of bodily movements. Because that there are many of us, you'll find that they do the same report, they do the same schedule. Everything is exactly the same from the beginning to the end.
But you might find that one has the reward
that reaches up to the heavens,
and another person has no reward.
And another person that someone doesn't reach above the neck, even though they're doing the same actions.
So the point here is not of course, of course it is important. So Luca, now I truly have somebody pray, as you have seen the as you have seen me pray, as the Prophet sallallahu its importance. But it's not just merely actions.
It's not just merely that external
position that we are going to focus on, which many of us that we do, we just focus on the external part of the prep,
which is important, but not at the sacrifice, about the internal actions.
And as many of them
have said that the actions of the internal actions are of greater reward, and grease, the significance of those outer actions. Because the foundation of any outer action, it starts with that interaction with your intention inside.
So when we are focusing on straightening the lines, which is important,
maybe when we want to focus on making sure that our bodily parts on the right our shoulders, and our feet are touching and chasing people, but yet somehow we have forgotten the essence of our soul.
And you're concentrating and humbling yourself, and fearing Allah subhanaw taala within those movements,
and as an even avatar,
that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he would perform his solo,
that every morsel of flesh, every tendon, every hair on his body, or a Serato, salon, was in pure servitude, to a loss of power.
These are the kinds of habits and these are the kinds of things that I want to make sure that are part of my brain.
But it's not merely actions with those actions are in fact,
me showing a manifesting mighty burden, my servitude
and my yielding to Allah subhanaw taala. These are the kinds of habits that I want to ensure are part of my career.
Not just as I mentioned, those things which you see with the eye,
but I want to make sure that it begins with insight
that when I pray that my body parts are truly worshipping Allah subhanaw taala.
Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he taught us how to pray.
So now whenever you make this be
when any special panel last panel will be another panel without him
It is Rasulullah sallallahu it was torture to say that whether you want to record or whether you are
and that when you are standing and solid that you read Al Fatiha and that you may recite another story
and that is because of this rule of law. So, nobody taught us that
and it is adhering to these things
which is what what that will give you success and a kobold from Allah subhanaw taala Bismillah.
When you look at the Salah itself and you look at your own soul,
what habits do you have in your soul?
Now, that habit when you think of a habit
is that we occurs quite frequently the same thing that you keep doing.
But within the soul It is good to have good habits.
And it will note that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam showed us particular of car particular things to do and save throughout the solo,
that there is some scope within the server itself. If you for you to do more than one thing, for example, or not to stick to the same thing.
So after you raise your hands, you say Allahu Akbar.
What is the first type of drama that you see?
Is it that you say the same
every single time?
Or is it that you find that you may change it from time to time?
By saying the same thing you may become a little heedless of the meaning of what you're saying, if indeed, you know exactly what you're saying in the first place.
But the habit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that he would change the dura and stifter.
The opening supplication from time to time, at times involves praising lots of penalty either completely.
At other times, it involves you asking lots of penalty Allah for forgiveness. And on other occasions, it may involve both praising lots of penalties, and asking for forgiveness. This was his habit salallahu alayhi wasallam in the Torah.
This is a habit we should try to bring within our own solo, and not just to restrict yourself to one route. And then you speed through it so quickly. You think yourself they're actually saying, so try to say another neuron, where you will concentrate on what you will say.
And after the recitation of authority, for example,
then you will not restrict yourself just for the small soul.
Even though it may be if you're not in the masjid, and you're in the morning federa for example, that you restrict yourself for no
good reason to the small soul. Rather, what was the habit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding selective pressure that he raised resemble elongated slide.
That is the habit of sort of muscle loss and concerning the budget.
And likewise, the other prints like Rococo, cray,
cray, and democritus. What was the habit of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam concerning these?
Now, the short time that I have with you,
I don't have the, we don't have the time for me to give you two answers for every single seller, this is what you should be doing. But at the very least, I'm stimulating some sort of thought process within yourself that yes, what was the habit or the practice? All of a sudden of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam concerning these prints,
when you go into, for example, a record? Are you going to suit what are the different altcar the different applications that you can possibly say those times, or when you restrict yourself to be loving?
One more album of killing,
not for us to belittle that statement. For you to make such a statement in Roku, there's nothing better for you to say, for the record for all the movies your
spouse for you're bound to a lot of penalty either. So glorify or exalt, you will note that is the best statement that you can make. But along with that, there are other applications that you can make.
And likewise Institute thanks to heroin or opiate,
growing at a low, the Most High. The best supplication you can say is that
but along with that, there are other things that you can say. And it was the habit of the Prophet salallahu it instead of to say other things, which reminds me about an aeration,
the young Sahabi or the Allahu Allah,
that he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and
that this young Sahaba
Paying attention to what the prophet sallallaahu Selim was saying in sudo.
And the times that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam could be heard saying many, many different things, one Institute,
this young Sahaba, who showed a lot of endeavor, and desire to learn what was said in the frustration that he said the food or loss on the last minute said
that I do not have the eloquence of that would you Yasuo la sala what I'm saying? That you say in your suit, I don't have the eloquence
my language is not as as wide as yours.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him,
what is it that you say he's rude? What do you say while you're frustrated?
He said quite simply, I say I love them in the local agenda.
Where I will be convenient, not, Oh Allah, I asked you for the paradise and I seek refuge from the fire.
The Prophet sallallahu I'm somehow level man within everything that we are saying is around these two things.
So at the very least, if you haven't memorized lots of lots and lots and lots of cars, that along with your statements to Panama via either that you would make that statement Allahumma in the local gym, well, I will be coming or not.
And it was the habit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
to teach the components and to address the companions in the way that they understood
and to make them feel part,
part of the jamara part of the society. Part of the day felt as though that they could participate in achieving some reward,
that they have to reach a certain level and then they could start accumulating deeds.
But regardless of what level that you are at,
that there was an opportunity for you to attain reward and mercy and blessings from Allah.
So, when we look at this,
you will find that the Prophet sallallahu azim again gave another advice concerning the habit of Asana,
not just restricting yourself to one thing within Masada.
A man he came into the master and he trades and is a well known Hades
and is known as the hunting of the man who prayed badly. Does anybody know his name? By the way?
Does anybody know the Hadith? The man he came into the masjid and he prayed and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him to go back three times and to repeat the prayer. And he said at the end, laughs You know,
I cannot do any better than that. You know the Hadith? You know the Hadith from shot, you know, the Hadith? Does anybody know the name of that companion? Like, at the end of Charlotte, Allah? If somebody hasn't given the answer, I'll give you the answer.
That gives you an opportunity to
look at it.
This companion or the alarm
in the manner that he prayed.
It was a level that the Prophet sallallahu deemed it that he needed to repeat his prayer.
At the end, he said, I can't do any more than that, when you think anything different from that. So then the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam taught him
and he taught him how to pray. Did he miss out his record? No.
Did he miss out his suit? No. Did he miss out beginning a lot but no. Did he miss out just leave at the end? No.
So he didn't miss out what you would physically see how a person prays.
But that important ingredient was a
tranquility within the brain.
The ability to be calm within the solid between each movement,
that when you're standing and you're going to record
and then you stand up. And then you go back into construction. Each of those is an independent movement that needs to be completed and has its
and has its right.
So the worst thief is who
want to steal from the salon.
So here the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught this companion, that a make it a habit within your solar within your prayer to make sure that every movement of your solar is given its heart is given its right.
But when you stand that you stand up optimal, and when you're going to record that you're going to record Padma Padma until you are calm.
You are tranquil. And when you stand up, you stand in that position of mine.
One of the secrets of masala that many of us, it bypasses is
that I showed you a long time. And
she's stated that whenever a matter or issue would bother the focus on the level it was seven would make him think deeply fuzzy I lasala.
Whenever seven thing came to the Prophet sallallahu, it said them serious matter, the first thing that he would go to a solid Ukraine to turn to our last panel. This was his habit.
Now, for many of us, if I have a problem,
or don't have a problem, family problem,
do I go for Salah? Or will I go to something else?
Maybe I think I'm going to fix the problem.
The one who's going to fix the problem is the one who gave you the problem in the first place. What do you decree that matter for you, at the very beginning,
a low gender line.
So when I initially came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he would immediately soon
as it is also mentioned by the oma Hatton meaning the mothers of the believers.
Now, when the Prophet sallallaahu, Adam said we would go into the house, can either hypnotic technique that he was at the service of his family.
Not like Roger Roger bar leader,
ordering people around. This was not the practice of the Prophet sallallahu it was and then within the home,
but he had a central salon, from the time that he would leave his house,
being at the service of the people.
And the service of Allah subhanaw taala, he would come home, and then he would be at the service of his family.
And even that,
he said, he stated that even within that time, he would split into different times when he was at his home. And he would still designate a time where people could visit him on a Sunday sermon needs to be at the service of the people.
But about the amount of time stated, for either
one of them was made. It was no he did not know anybody.
That was the one that was called, it was time to turn to Allah subhanaw taala. And
everything was then put on hold.
Everything was then to wait. Because now is the time to turn to a loss of penalty add
those five daily prayers.
example that comes to my mind is that act as a burden, that act of worship. For everyone who is sitting here in front of me. What happens after a brother will never stop.
That active Eva will always remain with you.
If you don't have the money, you don't pay the cat.
If you don't have the money in the means you don't perform much. If you're ill or you're sick, you travel, you don't post,
whether you're rich or poor, your resident or traveler, the prayer will remain with you.
So when the event was made,
that the purpose of the law he was said
he turned to prayer immediately.
Even you find a more compassionate side, a softer side
in how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said them in his offering swallow in knowing his surroundings.
That he would carry his granddaughter who may be the daughter of Zegna for the long run in
a small child that he saw a lot of money send him would pick up his daughter, his granddaughter and place her on the shoulder. And then what he went into her courts to place her in front of him and then he Arizona pick her up making
another another example
of the Allahu anhu climbing over the back
of the focus on the law, why'd you send them widen suit and chill on one occasion that one of the complainants thought because the statute was quite long
that something had happened.
Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam informed that companion that he wanted to give her a half an hour saying they have their right in wanting to play and then to move off.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had an awareness within
uneven the person who is leading the prayer,
the leader of the community, when he's leading the prayer for you,
then let him pray likely on the people
that the people enjoy praying behind the men
while each other
from one of the most
knowledgeable of the Sahaba deola, very beloved to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to lead the people in Venezuela in Cuba, not too far away from the master of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to lead them in salata, Russia.
And on one occasion, he prayed a lot in Asia quite long. In one narration, he said almost the length was sort of one button.
Until one of the people who was fella who was a farmer, it was so long he left the prayer. He prayed on his own. And he said, I'm going to raise this issue, to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that you are hypocrites. You left the prayer.
So the man he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and told
him what had happened.
He said to the Prophet, so I said, to
turn an empty mouth,
are you one who's creeping into your mouth,
because within your generosity, there is a Marine, that maybe is a sick person, or can be a person, somebody older,
always young, or even a woman with a child.
So if any one of you is going to leave the prayer for you,
then lighten up,
not to the extent that it goes against the sun, and us not knowing maybe what you should decide in Southeast Asia, for example.
So there is that balance between knowing the sunlight in both areas, because you don't want to go from one extreme to another.
And it was the habit of the focus on the long body, him send them in when giving them advice, that not only that, he said a lot wise, and we'll give you an advice that was needed for you right at that particular time.
But he would give you an advice, something extra, something directly linked to that issue.
Like when the Sahaba of your love, and some of them came, that needs to be fishermen.
And they sometimes carry a small amount of water.
That if they said if we drank this water, that we would omega vote with this water,
that we will become thirsty, because we cannot make will go with the seawater. Are we permitted to make war with the seawater?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you can the water is the who is pure.
The answer has been given, then the focus on the love of it, you said to them, and also it's dead is pure for you as well.
The dead fish, the things that you find in the sea doesn't cause you any harm, that is also permissible for you.
So it is the habit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in giving advice, giving advice for that matter that was needed at times giving something extra that was needed.
But the importance of Salah the prayer was given great significance.
And that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
make sure that the prayer was an intrinsic part not only his less advice on the love of it,
but the companions about the Allahu anhu that this idea of this understanding was passed on to them and passed on to their families.
When you look at the applications of the prophets, Allah Himself of sediment from the evil he managed,
to a loss of penalty
in making sure that his family
was steadfast upon the prayer.
And that he served the local audience and then was found on on occasion, because it was his habit and he said to set up to establish the night prayer
establishing the night prayer was part of his son
to the extent that I should not be allowed to and I said to him, some Allahu Allah He said that you are home Allah gel Nevada has forgiven
Previous on your sins to come, they will be forgiven.
But yet you still place yourself in this position. And the answer was what should I not be thankful server
Should I not be thankful?
So it is these habits that I want to instill in my life to ensure that I am a grateful servant.
And that it will enable me to have a relationship with a loss of penalty.
And for all the people that are on this earth,
regardless of their religion, whatever way that they follow,
that there is no body
that can really have a relationship with the loss of penalty either like the Muslim does.
No one can equally, not even close.
Because from the moment that you wake up, there is code for you.
And all the things that follow, going into the bathroom, coming out of the bathroom, putting on your clothes, making mobile going, leaving your house, going into the masjid, come out to the masjid, go back and go back into your home. How many of you have just mentioned that? Let's meet in the space of half an hour 45 minutes.
No one has a relationship with Allah subhanaw taala like the true believer,
and that there was no one who feared a loss of more than a loss.
There is no person closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala than Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
no one will ever pray like him, no one will fast like him, no one will make the Hajj like him.
No one will be like him in his
But he is output.
He is our role model.
And he is the way
to reach us.
That there is no other way to also penalty I'd accept through the way and the habits and authentic son of Rasulullah saw blah, blah, blah.
And any ignorance that we may have
any journal that any one of us may possess, and all of us that were ignorant in many things, this can only be extinguished. This can only be removed by knowledge.
And what we mean here by knowledge, is knowing the book of Allah subhanaw taala. A knowingly authentic approach to the loss of love.
That there is no success in this life, except by holding on to those two things.
There is no way to gentleness there's no way to paralyze except that you adhere to those two.
Those two revelations, the Book of Allah
and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu.
Now many books, many writings have been compiled concerning the prayer of Rasulullah sallallahu.
From the earliest books we've ever had in
Malta, of Mr. Malik,
and the other six books of Hadith in Bukhari Muslim and the full cinema Buddha would attend me imagine
all Have you ever solid, the book of prayer?
How the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would pray?
From the time that he saw Allah what he said he would raise his hands say Allahu Akbar, to the time that he is from Allah, who it was certainly would say, as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
None of this knowledge is hidden from us.
Nothing is hidden in caves or volts. It is all there for you.
In a language that you can understand,
whether it is in the language of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke the pure and beautiful Arabic language
or in translating the meanings into other languages, like English or French or ordered
there is no excuse for any one of us to be ignorant concerning the habits of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam concerning what is your conversation and your link with Allah subhanaw taala five times a day.
At the very least
that when you say
and you also lost a penalty if it had been I'll see you all still P. O Allah. Guide us to the Straight cough
is that because you are born with it?
Is that because you are misguided numerous guiding others that you are asking for guidance?
Or is it actually that you are asking a lot of you are recognizing that religion has guided you to an Islam.
But you're asking a lot of penalty either to keep you firm upon the straight path
and to give you knowledge, and success to remain on that straight path.
This is what the intended meanings from its intended meanings of a lot of keep me steadfast upon this Dean
gives me knowledge, knowledge of the Koran, and knowledge of the authentic son of Rasulullah sallallahu.
These are just a few words that I just wanted to mention concerning the importance of us adhering to the way of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam within our sola
and anything that I have said correct is from the trophy of Allah Jalla wa.
And I hope that enough is first and foremost, this reminder for myself, to educate myself concerning the intricacies of my prayer. As you should be also focusing on the intricacies of your prayer that you do not move your foot, your hand, your head, or anything in your Salah, except that you have been directed to do so.
How beautiful it would be that you are in fact praying
exactly the same way that the prophets of Allah body send them to a book recipe for the long run.
Or the same summer as
for any of us who have borrowed your loved one, that you are 14 130 or 40 years later, you're playing exactly the same song.
What an honor, it is, if also honors you with a Sala that is conforming to the way of the prophets Allah.
May Allah subhanaw taala guide us to pray the way that the Prophet sallallahu
I mean also cannot remove all forms of arrogance and
jealousy or whatever diseases of the heart The one may have in stopping us to follow your authentic shame now possible loss of
malice upon others bless you all. And I ask Allah subhanaw taala to go on to a gathering in the places of gentlemen that we may one day talk about such a gathering that we have no robotic alone pika masala
solomani Come on.
