Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam
ala while early he was
belongs to a last panel with either I made the Peace and blessings of Allah. Allah be upon his final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam My dear brothers and sisters in the cinema salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Allah when, I mean, I asked Allah the Great
as he has gathered us here, and has gathered us here for a reason, and the most beautiful reason to remember lagenda wahala that he gathers us in gentlemen, for those that are either alone We're having.
Now the theme of the conference is named the dome and fragile.
And this particular title or federal has a very important stages in the life of every Muslim.
And I will endeavor inshallah, to either try to touch on some aspects, which would encourage us, first and foremost, to remember ourselves to remind ourselves of Allah subhana wa Tada.
We want to leave today, having increased our Eman in some way, or having increased our relationship or have a Nia an intention to strengthen our relationship with a lot of volatility.
And I want you to begin with a story.
And it is a story which is etched radially and profoundly in Islamic history.
The great companion of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you will notice that each and every companion has their own story. Each and every companion has a profound has had a profound impact on Islam in some way.
And he was walking through the market, he was unable to meaning the Commander of the Faithful
walking through the market as he did for the Allahu anhu wanting to know about the affairs of the Muslims. When he came across a blacksmith,
this blacksmith his name was Abu al Medusa.
And he asked him, I have heard this particular individual was a servant of
So, Ilan asks, Abu I have heard that you are making or you're very good at making utensils, and just at that time he had
stepped up the use of fire banging something about the assessor. I heard that you made this particular earlier this utensil which couldn't ground ground, like Herbes and things like that.
He looked at
he said, what law he loves, actually and he said by a law I will make something
that the people from the east and the west on earth they will hear about it.
Because remember the I said I heard you could make something where the wind or the air will power will help you. He said by a law Well, I will make something that no one will forget.
This individual he then went on to make a dagger.
This dagger was not just a normal dagger but a dagger that had three points in it coming out the side and parts of it made from a smooth stone, making it very very strong.
was made a Sunday because then you wanted to soak it and leave it in soon in poison and he left it there for more than a month.
His intention was to assassinate me the meaning of the alarm.
On one occasion
in the nighttime axolotl, the dune he hid himself in the masjid of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he handled himself when he couldn't be seen. Now bearing in mind that that time is not like the massage now what likes is all over the place and you can see what is in the side. Maybe the one or two small lights can lights just illuminate the place. So he was hidden.
when he came in, told the people so full, straighten the lines, the governor saw a law
blue so that people were still coming into the masjid and the first black guy
So he waited until the second DACA.
And then when they began the second DACA
he came, and he stabbed
three times, one time in his chest, one time in His sight, and the third just below his belly button. And as it was the lowest common, he pulled it.
This particular the last stabbing just below his stomach, he pulled it.
And then he ran through the people.
And as he was the Sahaba, Iran were trying to grab him, he was his dagger left and right, he stabbed 13 of the companions, some of them seven of them died instantly.
Seven of them is dying instantly.
Then some of the companions about the Allahu anhu at the back of the master, he closed the doors that he couldn't escape. If you go near him, one of the companions about the I took of his garment and threw it on his face so that he couldn't see. He knew that his time was up. So he stopped himself.
He stopped himself, and he killed himself.
This was all at the time when
several of those companions will be raised the old wooden piano
seven of these companions, their last actions will be that it was written that they were attending salado
and that they were there defending America, bah, bah, bah, bah. I mean,
as Omar was on the floor, blood flowing out of de la Abdullah, the son of a mother
began to hold him. And he said I used to, I began putting my hands on the wounds of my father to try and stop the blood.
And I saw that the blood was profusely coming up underneath his stomach. So I tried to put my hand that will block it and my hand went in, into his stomach, the wound was so large.
So then, I was taken to his home was bandage they tried their very best. They tried their very best to keep him alive.
He came awake in the evening
when he woke, in pain, blood, bandages.
Anyone particularly the person who asks, What happened to me? Who did this to me? But the first thing
What did he say? When he came around? solidness? Have the people printed?
On this particular issue, try to ponder over what has happened, and is happening to this individual have the people
with where do we find this? We find it for the one who taught
who is the teacher of
none other than our beloved.
We know that in the final days in the final hours in the life
when he was coming in and out of consciousness,
he would ask he gives me water
to bring down the temperature to bring down the fever. And when he felt he had enough strength, he would begin to wake up to stand up in collapse. When he woke up what do you say to some of the people
and they will say
that people are waiting for you.
He would ask for water.
And then when he felt he had enough strength
it would be bought. He asked for adding or removing numbers for the line. And they would carry the Messenger of Allah so Allah
bearing in mind that the professor was so weak.
He wasn't walking with his feet, his feet were dragging.
His feet were dragging along the floor when he was going to the masjid. And on the way, again, he passed out. And every time that he would wake up, he would request and say, have some numbness. Have the people prayed?
Now I'm mentioning this, my dear brothers sisters, are these two stories or incidents from Islamic history? Because this conference wasn't seen that fragile,
for no reason.
But the focus on prayer, the focus on Salah is of the utmost importance.
When we know that
and when he worked, he said, How do people prayed? And then he called the people bring me some water because the people thought he's thirsty. And they began to give him water to drink. He said no. I need to pray.
He recognized himself that he needed to pray.
Then he prayed. Then he asked, Who did this action? What happened? Who did this? And they said, Who?
Was the servant of
What did you say? What did they
say? And how do we learn that the Johanna mean Katie? Anna Yeah, they
would praise to Allah,
Who is the one who was me to die now after Alexander Allah,
who did not make sure you to Allah even once. He didn't want to know he was a Muslim who did this was a disbeliever. He did this.
Again, remember the line you're attaching the matter, to pray.
In the final moments of the life of the soul, the loss of the law,
when he wasn't really able to say very much about what he did say so the law is a solid, a solid, a solid, the prayer, the prayer, the prayer.
The focus on the prayer, my dear brothers and sisters is extremely important. And as we know that before the alarm when he passed his he knew he was going to pass away, he sought permission from Anisha. But the alarm rang,
that he wanted to be buried next to suffering. Next to the two companions sort of pseudo loss, I saw them in Abu Bakar.
But it was the health of
an army surely alone and had the desire that if he was to pass away when she was divided, that she would be buried there.
the long run permission, so she gave it to him, there was only one place for one more. So we know that if you go to messages and numbers,
and you go past the edge of the house of a shadow of the alarm, you see the Prophet sallallahu send them
they are married.
There are three types of people regarding masala in general, three types.
The first one,
the first doesn't like them doesn't care.
Then they expect so much from Allah Subhana Allah, they're living in darkness, they're living in depression and sadness. How many Muslims use this on Saturday? Give me some advice. And then you ask them to get to the bottom of the issue. And then maybe you get a little bit deeper. And then you start to think about how can I advise them and you say, What's your relationship with? Like?
What's it like? is a strong?
And how do you determine how strong your relationship with with a lost contact is by what do you get with?
As far as that's an indicator? That's the most important indication in this life of your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala Why do I say that modality was the proof
because the first thing that anuman piano that you will be asked about is your salon.
So the first thing that you will be questioned about on the Day of Judgment shows the importance of what is happening in the dunya now and that is your prayer and your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala for that one young girl who cuts the relationship with Allah does not pray
How can they expect anything from Allah subhana wa tada is the first one. The second one is
the lazy one who wants to offer their Salah when they finished shopping wants to offer their Salah after they finished using the social media Facebook Twitter. Once I finished this outbreak, once they finished eating upgrade once I finished my gaze upgrade, they pray
but it is not the most important thing in their lives for wailing the low suddenly. Woe to those who pray.
Allah vino masala tea himself, though is the one who delay unnecessarily without reason woe to these individuals.
And then there was the third process
the one who can truthfully correctly up masala to establish
who understands that the Salah is their nourishment through the day.
Even if they have no money, even if they their nourishment and that connection with Allah subhanaw taala is the single most important thing to them.
What they are doing, the University, the college, their job, their children, their family, the first
the salon. They know that when our last panel dad is in Australia to Canada, Ireland, he indicated
that the prayer was established upon the believers that set and fixed times. This is this verse is immediately in front of their eyes, delaying it unnecessarily, not praying it for some dunia or worldly cause. Now you know possible How can I place a larger no Allah behind me and place that what I have now in the dunya before Allah subhana wa Tada.
Not possible. These people who established the prayer of the same people who Allah, Allah chose over mankind
while the prophets, the messengers are
one of the few examples and not just the prophets, but the most righteous of people.
When we use look at the story of Zachary.
Elijah informs us that when the angels they came to Zachary, to give him a bushel or to give him glad tidings about the coming of a son. How did they find secondaria?
Allah subhanaw taala says that
to the angels they called Zachary
What was he doing?
And he was playing in the praying in the place of Salah
Marian, and I said I'm the mother of how she addressed when she gave birth yeah Maria
he was 21
bow down to your Lord and bow with those who about
Ibrahim Ali saddam
a nation you know himself
and when you mentioned about our hemmati He said
he's the one profit
that you find you know how to sell them but also
follow the way the religion of Ibrahim Ali said and how many times we found our beloved Navy solicit them refer back to Abu ambia Ibrahim Ali Salim what was his supplication?
Ravi Gianni mukhi masala
oh my lord, allow me to be one who establishes the prayer me.
But Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was not just looking for himself, woman
and for my progeny who come after how many of us will we make?
Because maybe many of us we make so many things increase in wealth in health, better car but the house how many of us actually make
and when we look carefully at the applications that he brought, he made a solemn how from fundamental they are
Oh my Lord make me from one to establishes the prayer women Why do you make drive to a larger Nevada to make you strong and steadfast upon the prayer and your families? How often you do that? When you have any more money
or Lord keep me away from the worshipping of ideas and my beliefs and those who come after me for my family.
And the duality by Mr. Excellent no doubt was was asked. Because Allah Allah mentions reminds us concerning this money with this money and remember this money in the book. What did he used to do with
his money the son of Ibrahim Ali himself
The driver was made for him by his father, similarly used to command his family to establish the prayer as well.
The first meeting
Kadima la musala salam, when he heard the speech of Allah subhana wa Tada. What was mentioned to him, while
at established a prayer for my remembrance, the first words that came out of the mouths of Lisa rnv said in America as a child in the cradle, what did he say?
father in law, I am a servant of a law attorney and he gave me the book what Jilin every year and made me a prophet was
a lemma and made me a blessing from wherever I would be. Well Allah Swanee disciplina
and advised me commanded me to establish what the Salah the prayer,
you can see that there's a real common underlying theme. With all of these prophets. I live in salatu salam,
as I said, at the very beginning of his life, the first meeting of musasa with Robben Island in
the last moments of the life of
the last moments of
how important it is for the believer, even our beloved
and command your family upon the Salah. and be patient. Yes, when you're tired?
Yes, when it is cold? Yes, when it is difficult, yes, when it is busy, and yes, an excuse and excuse US dollar,
US dollar US dollar.
If only we understood its reality, and what it would be like
to stand in front of our eyes.
The first thing that you're going to be asked about is your Salah, and if it is good, everything that follows is good.
If it's here and the
moon comes Of course, after that will be similar.
Because the most important thing is not structured and in its place of done properly, then how would one then expect that what is will come after it can also be
focused on and in the correct order.
The person has obviously their priorities wrong.
How many times do you come, I've met families they come home say
we have problems between the husband and the wife, between the mother and
the daughter in law, so many incidents, and then when they start talking about how can we resolve the particular situation. So many times so many times, there are issues with the Salah of an individual.
The prayer of the individual is not as it should be.
The first time that any one of us, we come into this earth
he doesn't understand anything. But what he's done to you was the first thing that the baby is as a baby as a Muslim they go the first thing they hear what is it
then, are you calling them to pray to Allah, he's gonna come to pray with you. But that's the first thing he is a Shahada. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, hi Allah, Allah, Allah.
And when the person leaves this dunya
what is done over the individual again, the Salah, the prayer is established over the individual from the beginning, until the very end, the Salah is there to remind us
as he was Sister moosari set them up enough
to establish the prayer for the Lord's remembrance. Maybe some of us we pray
we pray inshallah Tada. But the quality
and how we pray.
Ask yourself how you do.
Imagine now that the last prayer that you prayed was going to be shown on the screen for everybody to look at.
Maybe you were home,
or you were somewhere there was nobody near you. And you offered your Salah and Amanda, which may be retrospectively looking back on it. Yeah, I could have done it better. I could have slowed down a little bit. How would it be that your soul is shown in front of the people? Maybe you'd say please don't show it.
It's embarrassing. Stephen please don't show it in front of the people.
But if a person was to say that
they weren't shy in offering the prayer light in front of a large and
the prime minister said he was not hidden from others.
But you will not shine you offered it how you offered it. But in front of the people. Please don't allow the people to see how I pray.
It goes further establishing the prayer
Not just actions and there is not a separation of the external and the internal in your breath.
A man he came into the salon and came into the masters of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam,
and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, Go back in the Columbus only did not pray.
He went and prayed and he came back. He was told for a second time go back, because you have not prayed.
And the third time, go back, because you have not prayed. After that time, what did the individual say? You have a similar level of seniority
is the best I can do. I can't do any more than that.
It is an extremely famous Hadith.
It's mainly the prayer of the one who prayed bad
just as you know that there's a hadith of gibreel.
This is named Hadith masala, when he tried
to focus on this hadith and state that was to the loss I set them focused on one particular matter, there was nothing new.
The establishment standing in the prayer and bowing and making sure you it's all there we will know this. But at each moment of the prayer
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
when you're in
the when you're in the bind position, you stay in that position until you are calm and tranquil. And then when you stand up, you stand up until you are calm and tranquil. And when you go down into surgery, you stay in subdued until you are calm and tranquil.
For this reason, many of them they say that tranquility and you moving correctly at each part of the prayer is one of the pillars of the prayer.
If it is not there, it is not present then you have missed out one of these, or can you miss that one of the pillars, just like sutras and 35 is one of the pillars of the prayer.
So how we have our Salah is extremely important and that the establishing of Salah is not just an external exercise. But it is a test and an
an exercise for us to look at ourselves internally and how we
worship a larger line.
A person who establishes the friendship
with the one who also establishes the salon Asia in JAMA receives the award receives the reward of standing in the night for the whole month.
Rasulullah sallallahu simcenter the bond who prays a lot in Asia in general will get the reward of half of them
and the one who pray is Gemma, a certain project Gemma will have the reward of the other half.
the heaviest of prayers upon the hypocrites is an
on one occasion Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Salatu
turned around and spoke to the companions I know Poulin
is here. He's not
he's not we're stone so he's not.
And here the purpose of medicine is all about those who are not attending. salata
is the heaviest prayer and
the attributes of the cross.
But then maybe I say
I'm a hypocrite.
They never felt safe.
Even hopefully for the man or the alarm. Who was a stackable
booster keep the secrets of the names of the minority
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa asmat the names of all of
who went to
your whole labor digital supervisor mentioned my name
is mentioned mining. Told him your name was not mentioned and I will not mention any other things.
No one should feel safe. No one should be protected.
The one who feels safe and protected from these matters has fallen into a great danger. One who is lazy in the US
salon. One who is not paying attention to the salon again, is in great danger. Because we've already mentioned about the status of the setup of the righteous people, the best of generations of this
system says hi.
I had the Nana. And I say to them,
I had the honor of being with whom ideally, to be some I never met before in my life.
I've never met a chef in my life before.
I had the blessing of spending five full days,
And in that time that I had with him,
had been a Muslim for as I mentioned earlier, 24 years. And I have done a lot of studying in different places and studying with being with great people who are deemed to be great people
who deem to be the only economic the righteous people.
I have never met in my life, an individual like this.
If I were to give him a name, I call him
he is an encyclopedia.
He is an encyclopedia.
If you want to ask me, what is the hot sauce watching? What's his speciality?
I don't know.
I cannot see that he has any speciality at all.
see a lot
of food across the board.
But what made him stand out
is that whenever he would refer anything, give to him for anything.
As far as maybe 95% of the time, he would mention only individuals from the first three generations.
Father shuffling churches,
processes. Mohammed who hasn't said this. So if you're on the phone, he says this.
It is as though that I truly understood now what it meant for a person to adhere to a methodology for really need to live by what they live by.
And that this oma will not truly be rectified and changed and straightened. Until we go back to that word straightened and corrected at the very beginning.
A very famous statement of my mother.
When Allah Allah says, yeah.
Oh, you believe Save yourselves and your families from the heavy fire.
The question then immediately comes is that how do i do them?
What do I do? What do I begin with?
Sometimes we forget to forget about the foundations. We start talking about books and cooking and things like the country complicated. But sometimes we need practical, simple information about as a genuine Muslim. I'm not a scholar. I'm not a student of knowledge. I'm just living day by day What do I do to save myself and my family.
Status establish number one, establish your following.
establish your brand. Never leave your printer.
No matter how busy you are, no matter what you have
to say people will look at me people will delay. I'm not concerned.
The salon, the salon, the salon,
because in the nine movements of the most beloved people to me,
that was most important to them. So similarly that should be important to me.
Imagine now this is after yom is the last day for you in your life, how you would behave and how you would live.
Nevertheless, a lot of prayer false, no but you just freed it. But you have truly established your prayer.
If the master is within walking distance of your home,
attending the masjid in July.
Under there is no limit. There is no sweetness, there is no more beauty when knowing that near the dunya now the world is sleeping around you. But you get up and the Jew established a lot of
there's nothing like that. And then if you're able to sit there in a shadow until the sun rises, you stay in that place that
was mentioned before on
vehicle and then when the sun has risen, then you pay to
have the reward of What had you been?
That's waiting for you every day.
But what prevents us?
What prevents us as maybe 101 excuses that really are not excuses at all.
the grandson of Ramadi, Amman,
his name was Abdullah.
And he was within a setting of judges who use
a judge in New York who was a tyrannical leader at the time.
And there was an incident where he command is the forum, take him and take his head off. Take your sword I'm taking
this is how we'll be with people.
So the man he got a machinery
she says the man stood up and took him and took him away. And they will the people in the group will ask him, is he really gonna kill him? Is he really gonna take his head off for that was nothing. There's a small incident.
So he walked away, this individual was taken away.
And he was asked the question
he was asked to substitute praise and friendship this morning.
he said, part you find now God
is not commanded by a judgment he will do to you.
He says my father
narrated from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
that whoever prays Rajab in German is under the protection of a ma
Who would have ever thought that this individual everything
that establishing salata funding but morning, by Allah permission would be the reason that he would live another day.
never would have thought that.
And I promise you the trouble
is that whoever you come in contact with
and you only have a few minutes with them. Even the companions or the tablet, they would meet one another. And they will at times ask each other for advice and advice.
We advise each other to
say these things to each other.
Like I love you for the sake of velocity. They're not for the sake of any linear worldly mission. But because Allah Allah Allah made us brothers or sisters.
If you have a two minute meeting with them,
a one minute meeting with them is assured that you advise child to Allah has something to do with the Salah, the prayer, make sure you're firm on your brain.
Because if you have a connection with a large under other
relationship connection, establishing your prayer,
you can be guaranteed
you can have a promise with Allah Allah.
Allah, Allah will never forsake
for the one who sees the connection with Allah Subhana Allah is the single most important thing in my life in your life.
You all as you think of Allah is with you as you think of him.
the prophet SAW,
Allah is with you as you think of a lot.
If you have
good feelings, good connection with Allah similarly a lot is with you like that. And even more
I asked a lot of penalty
about CES I also have lots of panel data we made some some will be masala masala here established allows us to be from those who truly establish the prayer. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to give victory to the home of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam does not come along Hara was a lot of symbolic anatomy and Mohammed was led by Mr. Malik.
