Celina Vienna Mohammed
wasafi woman sada al energy,
India Lopez dua 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 I lost my dad has enabled me to come to this Masjid, it's not really that far away from me.
So I would like to thank Chicago summit and the committee for agreeing to come to 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 Michelle Sophie. And like this disposition, because we were in the same class. And I think I look back to what it was then and what it is now on the achievement. Of course, the grace, the grace and blessings are from our sponsor, firstly, but the great achievement that the lives of others 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 cat Foundation, and Coco force, which is one themselves male,
Chef, and male as well, all rural, there is truck structures, and all of those who have participated in such an overlap.
Before I started to, before we get into the topic about the habits
of Rasulullah sallallahu. Concerning this follow, 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
and first I want you to note the importance of following the habits of loss to the loss of a lot.
And knowing the importance of following his his film, Elisa, especially in a time where now that all of us, we are claiming to love the loss of a loved one 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 the loss of a loved one 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 Allah, today, Rudy,
then follow me and he will attain the love of God.
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 paragraphs.
So May Allah subhanaw taala give us the success and the guidance to follow the authentic son of
a man he was praying in the master.
And he prayed often, maybe one example he paid off at the sunrise and he was offering a number of frustrations and reports. And remember last month out of the budget,
San Jose Rahim Allah tada he rebuked him for doing this review of timber praying at 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.
So even though that the action of the Prophet 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 alayhi wasallam is of the utmost importance.
Now, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sent them 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 a loss or penalty Allah revealed, yeah, you hit him with death, fear, all the one who is covered in garments that he said to his wife Khadija wrote to Dr. Lance, that is it time for rest, the time for sleeping and relaxing is
a luxury rather than commanded the purpose of a long time to stand up and to warn his people.
From this time to the very last moments of Rasulullah, salallahu alaihe salam slide, you will find that the prayer and everything that was around the prayer
was given priority.
And the focus was on the prayer.
Now, I'm not going to go into the wider aspects of the importance of friends, that will come later.
But I just 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,
when you might find that one has the reward
that reaches up to the heavens,
and another person has no reward.
And another person that sort of doesn't reach above their neck, even though they're doing the same actions.
So the point here is not, of course, it is important. So look at moody or suddenly 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 the 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 of a 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,
and 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 favoring Allah subhanaw taala within those movements.
And as an even Abby karnavati, Allahu anhu stated,
that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he would perform his swallow,
that every morsel of flesh, every tendon, every hair on his body, AlLahi salatu salam 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 prayer.
But it's just not nearly actions with those actions are in fact,
me showing you manifesting mighty burden, my servitude
and my yielding to Allah subhanaw taala. These are the kind of habits that I want to ensure are part of my
not just as I mentioned, those things that 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 whenever you make this be
whenever he says you can, the last panel will be either supine along with aldine
It is Rasulullah Salallahu it instead of the torture to say,
whether you want to record or whether you are
and that when you're standing and solid that you read Al Fatiha and that you may recite another surah and that is because of a pseudo masala body insulin
and it is adhering to these things
which is what what that will give you success and a COBOL 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 solo?
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 solid is good to have good habits.
And even know that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam showed us particular card particular things to do and save throughout the follow
that there is some scope within the server itself with you for you to do more than one thing, for example, or not just stick to the same thing.
So after you raise your hands, you say Allahu Akbar.
What is the first type of grammar that you say?
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 penalties either completely.
At other times, that involves you asking Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness. And on other occasions, it may involve both praising lots of penalty either and asking for forgiveness. This was his habit sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the Torah.
This is the habit we should try to bring within our own soul. And not just to restrict yourself to one euro. And then you speed through it so quickly. You think yourself they're actually saying, so try to say another ground, where you will concentrate on what you're saying.
And after the recitation of authority, for example,
then you will not restrict yourself just for the small sword.
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 sword. Rather, what was the habit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding certain federal that he NHSN would elongated slightly.
That is the habit of solo masala and concerning the budget.
And likewise, the other prints like Robo crib? And also the marketing. 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 occur the different supplications that you can possibly say those times or when you restrict yourself to
one more album or
not for us to be literal that statement. For you to make such a statement in Roku, there's nothing better for you to say, for Amber's record for the MFI
spouse for you're bound to a loss of penalty either. So glorify or exalt you a lot. 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 Helen
glowing beach 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 puppet solomani instead of to say other things, which reminds me about an aeration.
Now the young Sahabi or the Allahu Allah,
that he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam an
this young Sahaba
Paying attention to what the prophet sallallaahu Selim was saying in situ.
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 sent through the loss of a loved one, it said
that I do not have the eloquence of that, would you you're a pseudo loss on
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 said, I love them in the SLO congenita.
Where we can mean I'm not, Oh Allah, I asked you for the paradise and I seek refuge from the fire.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said he would love woman 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 car, that along with your statements to handle all of the other, that you will make that statement along with me as
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 drama, part of the society. Part of the day felt as though that they could participate in achieving some reward. Well, but 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,
we will find that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, again, gave another advice concerning the habit of Asana,
not just restricting yourself to one thing within Masada
a man he came into the mustard and he prayed, and is a well known Hadees.
And this is known as the hunting of the man who prayed badly. Does anybody know his name? By the way?
Does anybody know that?
The money came into the masjid. And he prayed and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam told him to go back three times and to repeat the prayer. And he said at the end of the day, I cannot do any better than that. Do you know the Hadith? Do you know the Hadith from Charlotte? Do you know the Hadith? Does anybody know the name of that companion? Like, at the end of childhood? If somebody hasn't been in the house, I'll give you the answer.
So it gives you an opportunity to
this companion or your loved one
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 say anything different from that. So then the Prophet sallallahu, Adamson 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 phrase.
But that important ingredient was atomic
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 frustration. Each of those is an independent movement that needs to be completed and has its heart and has its right.
So the worst thief is who
when you steal from someone
so here's the purpose of the law and send them toward this companion. But to 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. It's right.
That when you stand that you stand hopped up Optima in and when you're going to record that you're going to record pokemon pokemon until you are calm.
You are tranquil. And when you stand up, you stand in that position, but
one of the secrets of Vassallo that many of us it bypasses is
that I showed you a long time and
she stated that, whenever a matter on issue would bother the focus on the law, it was seven would make him think deeply fuzzy I lasala.
Whenever something came to the Prophet sallallahu, and you send them serious matter, the first thing that he would go to a solid look
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 solid? 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 me the problem in the first place. One who decreed that matter for you, at the very beginning,
a little genuine.
So when an issue came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, that he will immediately soon
as it is also mentioned by the oma Hatton meaning the mothers of the believers.
Now, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said he would go into the house, can either symptomatic
that he was at the service of his family.
Not like 100 on job board leader,
ordering people around, this was not the practice of the Prophet sallallahu it was in within the home.
But he was around from the time that he would leave his house,
being at the service of the people.
And the surface of Allah subhanaw taala, he would come home. And then he would be at the service of his family, some of our volumes.
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 at a certain time, and he would be at the service of the people.
But about the amount of time stated for either.
When a van was made, it was though he did not know anybody.
That was the one that then was called, it was time to turn to a loss of Hamiltonian. So
everything was then put on hold.
Everything was then to wait. Because now is the time to turn to a loss of time.
Those five daily prayers.
example that comes to my mind is that act to embed the act of worship. For everyone who is sitting here in front of me, what happens after a bother will never stop.
That active a gardener will always remain with you.
If you don't have the money, you don't pay the cap.
If you don't have the money and 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 telling them sallam,
he turned to pray immediately.
Even you find a more compassionate side, a softer side
in how the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said them in his offering solar in knowing his surroundings
that he would carry his granddaughter who's the daughter of Zegna
a small child, that he's gonna love it, send him would pick up his daughter, his granddaughter, and place her on the shoulder. And then what he will do to place her in front of him, and then he can pick up again.
And another example
of the Allahu anhu climbing over the back
of the focus on the law, why'd you send them? Why didn't you do until on one occasion that one of the companions 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 for saying they have their right in wanting to play and then to move off.
So the professor
had an awareness with the
And even the person who is leading the prayer,
the leader of the community, when he's leading the prayer fellow,
then let him pray lightly on the people.
Let the people enjoy praying behind the men.
While the puja
from one of the most
knowledgeable of the Sahaba do not run, very beloved to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to lead the people in Barrow center in Cuba area, not too far away from the master of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to lead them in Salatin, Asia.
And on one occasion he prayed a lot in Asia quite long. In one narration, is that 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 prophets of Allah wa he was sent them and told
them what had happened.
He said to the Prophet, so I said to
him, MTM mouth,
anyone who's creeping into your mouth,
because within your generosity, there is a Marine, maybe it's a sick person, or can be a person, somebody who's older,
always young, or even a woman with a child.
So if any one of you is going to lead the prayer, for you,
then lightened up.
Not to the extent that it goes against the sun in us not knowing maybe you should resign in Southeast Asia for Islam.
So there is that balance between knowing the sermon 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 and send them in when giving an advice, that not only that he saw a lot more it will give you an advice that was needed for you right at that particular time.
But he will 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 used to sometimes carry a small amount of water.
That if they they said if we drink this water, that we would omega vote with this water,
we will become thirsty because we cannot make water with the seawater. Are we permitted to make we'll go with the sea water.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you can the water is the who is pure?
The answer has been given. Then the Prophet sallallahu, if 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.
So it is the habit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in when 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 the purpose of the longer it was
make sure that the prayer was an intrinsic part not only his less advice on the local audience,
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 supplications of the profits, and he himself was stolen from them, by him and he said
to a loss of penalty
in making sure that his family
was steadfast upon the price.
And that he served a lot more audience seven was found on on vacation because he 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 alone with her and I said to him sallallahu alayhi wa December that you are home a larger Nevada has forgiven much upon
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 at Stanford.
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 a loss of penalty either like the Muslim does.
No one can equally not even close.
Because from the moment that you wake up, there was 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 of the masjid, go back and go back into your home. How many of you have just mentioned that let's make in the space of half an hour 45 minutes.
No one has a relationship with Allah subhanaw taala like the true belief,
and that there was no one who feared our last panel data more than the last.
There is no person closer to Allah subhanaw 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 a loss of penalty I've stepped through the way and the habits and authentic son of Rasulullah sallallahu early
on 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 unknown the 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 gentlemen, there's no way to paradise 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,
more or less of Mr. Malik
and the other six books of Hadith in Bukhari Muslim and the for cinema Buddha Tell me imagine they all have you ever sala de book of prayer?
How the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would pray.
From the time that he saw Allah who it said it would raise his hands saying Allahu Akbar, to the time that he is from Allah, who it was 17 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 professors on the lower body of cillum spoke the pure and beautiful Arabic language
or in translating the meanings into other languages, like English or French or audible.
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 ask a loss of penalty if it had been up to Mr. P. O Allah, guide us to district cough
is that because you are one
Is that because you're misguided, new misquoting others that you asking for guidance?
Or is it actually that you're asking? You're recognizing the knowledge of others guiding them.
But you're asking Allah subhanaw taala, 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 meaning is, 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 Salah.
And anything that I've said correct is from the tofield for La Jolla.
And I hope that 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 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
the same server as
for any of the Sahaba rhodiola on the new all 14 130 or 40 years later you're praying exactly the same song.
What an honor it is. If Allah subhanaw taala owners you with a Salah that is conforming to the way of the prophets of Allah wives.
May Allah subhanaw taala guide us to pray the way that the prophets of Allah
I mean also cannot remove all forms of arrogance and
jealousy or whatever diseases of the heart that one may have in stopping us to follow your authentic sooner. Rasulullah sallallahu
bless you all. And I ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us a gathering in the places agenda that we may one day talk about such a gathering that we have no robotica low FICO masala,
