So if someone may Allah protect us on commits a sin from now until they wake up for failure, and they face a lot of pressure on time

So he was a grandchild of our workers to deal and he was the second cousin of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam his father was as available as one the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And when the Prophet salla son passed away, our beloved Isabel was very young was about 11 years old, because he was the

00:06:22--> 00:07:02

first child ever the first child ever to be born healthy and survive after the hijra from the Mahajan. You know, when people in the people of Mecca de immigrate and they came to Medina, many people just start talking about the people, the people of Medina, you know, the Mahajan, they're not gonna survive, Medina is not a good environment for them, they're gonna die, they're gonna get sick and so on. And indeed, the women of the Mahajan were unable to conceive for quite a good time. And people they say that's because of the curse of being there left their cities and so on. But when Abdullah and Isabel was born healthy, and he survived, the Mahajan was so excited, they said they

00:07:02--> 00:07:12

have never been accepted by anything that like the birth of the law of urbanism obeyed or the Allahu anhu Omar Abdullah zobayan. He had a very amazing quality. He was a very strong young man,

00:07:14--> 00:07:58

very outspoken, and very courageous. He has a history of basic Islam. Part of this history he became almost almost became like the halifa. After the death of Maya we are allowed on almost he became the halifa. So he kind of ruled a lot of Arabian peninsula in Iraq and some parts of a sham. But then unfortunately, he was defeated by the armies of Hadji Musa photography he was trapped in Mecca. So this story speak about him Canada karma for Salah Khanna who do minerals for sure. They say when our beloved Mr. Beard used to stand up and Salah, you would think that he is like a, like a trunk of a tree, which means what doesn't move. He doesn't move at all. Mineral for sure, because of his focus

00:07:58--> 00:08:38

and concentration and salaat he does not move out the line. He doesn't scratch, like many of us do. He doesn't try to check if his keys are in his pocket or not. He doesn't try to look at the time because I didn't check what what time was that when I start my Salah he doesn't do that at all. When he starts in Salah he's firm and he's not allowed to run completely like a trunk you cannot see him actually moving. Our can is dude. Sometimes he would go when he goes to the sujood when he makes us prostration Institute for 10 zero la sofiero Allah hora de la Sabu en la general health sometimes the birds will search on his back institute that is that they think he is a piece of frog or a stone

00:08:38--> 00:09:19

basically that's sitting there. What does that mean when a bird comes on purchase money? What does that exactly mean? It means you literally like a dead dead bird like a stone like a rock. So he was so focused on a Salah that he doesn't shake, he doesn't move at all, as if he was indeed like a stone or rock or the Allahu wa Taala was Allah Yeoman Phil hedger. One day he was seeing making salah and allegedly Judas made around the Kaaba that was in he was leading Mecca, and he was besieged by the armies of Alhaji Vanessa photography. He was making salah and the hedgerow of Ismail that space that arch that you see around the Kaaba. He was praying there rhodiola han hydro Qaeda,

00:09:19--> 00:09:46

Al Qaeda, it's the the catapult a stone that was flying from the catapult that they threw over him and his army when he when they received them in Macedonia lon. So they have been about the therapy femen fatten said that stone passed by him that even his job his garment was shaken. You know what, what got shaken because of the wind that passes by? And he himself he did not even look around to see what happened.

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

Can you imagine that? You'd be standing in salon and something like like a rock or a ball just comes across by you just goes close to your ear, close to your body that you could feel

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

That but he himself for the long run did not even look to see what happened. Why is that? Because he was 100% focus on his solar bubble Carla my mood of the moron Mara it Muslim of NASA and we'll take it and use a lot of Muslim events ASR one wasn't the seller for Salah Rahim Allah Allah says I've never seen him looking around or even trying to see or to even with his eyes basically to look anywhere and his Salah what occurred and hadn't met now here terminal Masjid he said one day he was praying in the masjid, and one corner of the masjid collapsed. Imagine the message that you bring in one side of the message collapse. Cada suka data, the entire marketplace all the people in the

00:10:45--> 00:11:27

marketplace they came running to see what happened. The people of the market they came to see what happened in the holofil messages you suddenly felt effort and he was there in msgid itself and he was making his Sunnah he didn't even look to see what happened. What can Allah Beatty he either dalmunzie in second they say about him Rahim Allah whenever he comes home, his family they can get quiet because that is at home basically. For either karma a la sala Taka l'amour De hecho but when he starts his Salah, they go back rowdy and they start talking and laughing and so on. Why is that? Because when he's in Salah, he disconnects completely from the surrounding completely. He is so

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

focused, so concentrating so focused on his Salah that he doesn't even hear or feel anything that goes around him radi Allahu, Allahu Allah. I know for many of us, they would say wow, can you even get to that level?

00:11:43--> 00:12:20

Is that even religion? Is that even rain? Can someone really get to that level? Well, I'm unlike Muslim Mara and bilinear sada they allow that and he did that. And I'm sure if you if you put so much effort in getting to that level and show love, dedication, who shouldn't, you might get to that level specifically, specifically, if you become so emotionally attached to Salah imagine when you're on Salah, and you start now flying because of joy and happiness and feeling of spirituality perhaps you will be crying in your Salah will lie whatever happens around you, you wouldn't even care. You will you wouldn't even pay attention to what happens around you because you're so focused and you're

00:12:20--> 00:12:30

so enjoying every moment of your Salah. What kind of aliveness is saying same alley, the son of a person are they allowed to run around the Allahumma EDA

00:12:31--> 00:13:08

his father alone what he used to pray, he would turn yellow basically he turns pale, he turns pale for clear Allahu Fidelis he was he was asked well what happened to you what what's wrong with you when you make what do you always tell people what's wrong with you? Why are so scared? For Karla Karla affected Runa by other men returning home Don't you know before whom I'm going to be standing right now? Understanding before Allah subhana wa tada that's why the Imam when they sometimes they will stand in front of the people they will remind the people that make this your final Salah that imagine with whom in front of whom you're standing, you're standing before Allah subhana wa Tada. So

00:13:08--> 00:13:47

when you make that conscious decision that you are going to be standing before the law surgeon. Hopefully it will help you focus and concentrate on your Ivana now remember him Allah is bringing us to the slices This is not the virtuous of Salah. Now let's talk about what you do. How can you focus on your Salah call wylam another Salah tr cannon awaji baton was sooner, he says you need to he should know that your Salah has pillars, obligations and sunon now offer which means these are recommended acts. So use or whatever you do in Salah some of it is essential for the validity of the Salah. Some of them are essential for

00:13:49--> 00:14:32

the technicality of the Salah to be to be good and to be right and acceptable and some are considered sunon Museo de enhance the quality of your rabada annual Salah but he wasn't focusing on this. He was not focusing in this this is these issues can be discussed and books of fuck what he wants you to pay attention to called Whoo hoo ha as for the soul of your Salah. Then indeed the spirit of your Salah baraha and Nia, the intention will have lost sincerity while horseshoe focus meaning the focus on your Salah will helldorado call the presence of your heart. So these are four things. I want you guys to remember that. I want you to repeat this with me number one, what is it?

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

And Nia The first thing What is it? And Nia which means your intention? I don't mean by this intention? We don't mean by this intention that you're making salata. bourassa in particular, no, that's not the intention we're talking about here. The intention is to whom are you doing this Salah for us are you doing it and you need to always to be observant of why you're making this allow for number two is last sincerity. That everything that you do for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah

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

Without associated no partners with alas those that you're not showing off with that it's only for the sake of Allah xuejun number three, what is it an issue that's not concentration focus on your Salah. And when you do your Salah you don't get distracted by the designs of the carpet you always focus on your salon la vida and number four called the presence of the heart Your heart is there with you that your heart is there focusing on the ibadah it's not like your eyes are focusing on the on the carpet and then your heart is somewhere else you can either need to be all together in this place and at that moment, which is the Salah Carla for insalata Why do you need to have these four

00:15:39--> 00:16:11

together and solid to be to count you know as the best. He says for inner Salah usila Touch Malala at Karen one Mona Jatin my fan your Salah is reports at car words of remembers when monada subtle communication between you and the last panel data what file and actions can we repeat that again? Gemma there are three things when it comes to Salah you're doing three things number one I've got remembrance words it remembers like what Tell me what the role was it remembers that you do in Salah.

00:16:13--> 00:16:15

Pray citation SoTL Fattah, what else

00:16:18--> 00:16:41

so how to be an Allah Subhana Allah Diem. How about saying Allahu Akbar all these are words of remembers you remembering Allah azza wa jal you glorifying him subhana wa Taala you praising him. So there is words of remembers. The second thing is when when our job the meaning of monada that subtle communication and conversation between you and the last surgeon? What are the subtle communications between you and the last panel? Tada? What is it?

00:16:42--> 00:16:54

The fact itself when you say Dina serrata must have been your Allah goddess with a straight path. That's a communication between you and the last panel data. What else are the subtle communication between you and the last surgeon?

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

Institute? What do you do? Do?

00:16:59--> 00:17:12

You supplicate and you make your help me with that you're helping with that. But there is much more profound and deep, subtle communication between you and Allah subhana wa Tada. And what is it?

00:17:15--> 00:17:20

Can you think of something that is deeper than just making dua and making words of the What is that?

00:17:22--> 00:17:23

Can you think of something?

00:17:25--> 00:17:25

Say louder?

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

What is it exactly? I know it's a Jew but what is the essence of it?

00:17:33--> 00:17:46

It's the humbleness, humility, servitude, submission, obedience, all of that. What is it? you're communicating all of this to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:17:47--> 00:18:26

when you come on time for Salah, you know that you're busy working, you're busy cooking, you're busy acting this or that you're busy studying, driving, whatever you do, but then you interrupt everything you made your will do. And then you came on it you come on you make your Salah? What exactly are you communicating to Allah subhanho wa Taala when you do this, aren't you communicating to our last panel on your obedience to Him, you serve with you to him, your humbleness, your humility, don't you do that when you make this salon this a better, this doesn't happen verbally. And you don't do that through the actions only. That comes from inside from the heart. This is the

00:18:26--> 00:19:09

subtle communication that we're talking about here. The third, the third thing that you do and Salatu mentioned followers, and actions. The actions are what raising the hands when you make your tech be, make a new record. When you bow down and moving down to the search the position when you do that you go up and down and the long standing the long standing for the last panel with Allah. That is devotion. These are signs of devotion There is no doubt about it. So you're doing three things in Salah you're doing worship remembrance at car. Number two, the subtle communication between you and the last soldier Elmo nyjah and number three LFR these are the actions that you do in your Salah

00:19:09--> 00:19:33

Paloma Adam hodl called La Sol Matsuda will carry well monada if the heart wasn't there, if the heart was absent, if the heart was not present, at that time, almak sudo will carry over monada does not happen means the purpose of these words of remembrance. The purpose of this subtle communication does not exist or not happen.

00:19:34--> 00:19:39

When you just recite the fact that the only thing you remember from it is I mean, what did you exactly say?

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

What did you really mean by saying a dinner Serato must determine your heart was not there. You did not communicate the essence of Allah guide me to the straight path. You didn't communicate that properly. You said it, but you did not communicate that properly. You just said it. That's all the same thing when you make when you say somehow

00:20:00--> 00:20:44

Allah Institute. That's a word of glorification you glorifying Allah azza wa jal Oh Allah you praising Allah by saying Subhana Allah Praise be to Allah the Most time. But when your heart wasn't there, you only said it, you did not you did not communicate that to Allah Xhosa meaning you, you did not, you did not appreciate that did not say that enough. That's the meaning of it. You just communicated that verbally but it was empty, formless essence, which is the presence of the heart. On the unknown, Nautica is Allah Mula Bandha. Filled damiri Kennedy manzi little Hadrian. Because not ms speech, speech, if the if it did not express what it's there in the heart, it becomes worth

00:20:44--> 00:20:45

hallucinating.

00:20:46--> 00:21:27

When someone says something, they don't mean it. What does that mean? This is speaking nonsense. And that's exactly what it means. When you say things, you don't even mean them. Seriously, if you don't come from the heart, then we don't make any sense. If you keep saying all day Subhan Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala and you just have no idea what's the meaning of Subhan Allah? What would that sound like? Like nonsense. But if you just sit down for one minute, and you say from your heart, Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah, and you focus on it, you recognize the meaning of this Praise be to Allah, so just always praising Allah subhana wa Tada. And as you say, these words as

00:21:27--> 00:22:04

you utter these words, even though they're very simple, they're so short, as a statement. When you say these words, you're focusing on the meaning of that, that is the communication of the heart. That's the manager, that the subtle understanding and communicating these words for Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's when it really benefits you the most. When you go down and see Jude, and you start saying, Subhana, Allah, Allah, from the heart, not just from the tongue, when you make your ruku Subhana Allah, Allah Subhana, Allah Bernardin. And you say that you Allah, Praise be to Allah, the greatest panel data when you say these words from the heart, that's when it means the most that

00:22:04--> 00:22:14

these are the sort of communication and believe it or not, when you start enjoying these words, when you enjoying these words, can you imagine how long your solute is going to be?

00:22:16--> 00:22:41

While you're enjoying sense of hanok bill and support of Bill, Adam, would you rush your Roku answer just because there is something else you just want to finish started to go and catch up with? I doubt it. Because at that moment, that is the most enjoyable woman to the most joyful moment to you, the most serene, the most peaceful, the most beneficial as that you do. Whatever you think of after salon wouldn't matter to you.

00:22:42--> 00:23:27

And that's when you start enjoying your Salah. And your event called Rahim Allah, waka Delica, la Sol matsudo are similar to the actions that you do in Salah if the heart wasn't there, they will be meaningless. The ruku answered, you don't show humility or humbleness. They only show someone doing mechanical acts. That's all. You're only doing this obligation just to get over that. That's it. But the benefit the true benefit of that Avada is not there at all. Currently no is a current matsudo malkia and finma. Because if standing, it's to show servitude, women are required to shoot the lower limb and bowing down and making such that is to show glorification of Allah subhanho wa Taala and

00:23:27--> 00:24:05

reverence to Allah. So Jen, what a miracle Calvo Hydra, but the heart was not present at that moment. Let me Massoud meaning, the essence of that action was not there. It didn't didn't feel fulfill the purpose from your soul, Maqsood for in and fairly matter Harada and Matsuda he bought the assault and Latvala because the action if it doesn't fulfill the purpose, it becomes superficial act. Whatever you do, if it doesn't fulfill its purpose, it just an image, nothing else. And that's exactly the meaning the meaning of our Salawat sometimes you only make the Suna in two minutes, literally in two minutes.

00:24:06--> 00:24:12

Why is that? Because you only want to fulfill the obligation of doing so now that's it,

00:24:13--> 00:24:54

but to enjoy it, to joy yourself Nero to Allah subhana wa tada to erase your sins, to elevate your status, to build the house and agenda to please Allah subhanho wa Taala with this, to confirm and justify your servitude to Allah azza wa jal, these meanings if they're not present at the time of making a banner, they lose, they lose the meaning the Salawat they lose their meaning and that's why many of us do not enjoy the salon because it's empty and become void for material purpose. Instead of enjoying it to connect with the last panel what and a subtle communication. It became an obligation I have to get over with, just do it and move on with your life. That's it. The sooner the

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

faster, the better it is. And that's why people enjoy praying behind an amount of praise faster.

00:25:00--> 00:25:40

than someone who prays longer. God Allah tala Li Nan Allahumma lahoma voila, voila. kena taqwa. minko inserted hace las panatela says, les Annette aloha to whom I'm speaking about the sacrifices you do on the on a holiday, meaning the heading that the animals that you sacrifice during that day. Allah subhanho wa Taala says lady and Allah Allah Allah human means Allah is not going to get anything from the meat. What are the mouthwash? No, he will get anything from this blood that you shed over there. What are you know, I mean come the only thing Allah subhana wa Taala will see from you. He will see the taqwa, your righteousness or your piety. That's what counts the most. As for

00:25:40--> 00:26:02

the blood and for the meet Allah who is underneath of that Allah has asked you to give it to the poor even. But what he needs from you for doing that. What he needs from you. To do that for is to show your gratitude show your taqwa, your righteousness, and your piety, while Massoud Anil was reliance upon on Watada who will was what really reaches a loss aversion is the attribute and

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

the attribute that captures the heart.

00:26:06--> 00:26:47

What really reaches Allah subhana wa Taala in regard to the sacrifice is the attributes that captures the heart when I see another taqwa men come and let the Hata hamdullah LMT third Allah Hata homina LMT third oma bloober This is the attribute that captured the heart that forces the heart to fulfill and obey these commandments. That Allah subhanaw taala was asked to interview for abdomen huddle call before Salah you have to have your heart present during your Salah. What can you send me her shadow for you reflect in tatara Allah subhanahu wa tada will forgive a temporary, a temporary distraction.

00:26:48--> 00:27:03

Allah will forgive that temporary distraction. We don't expect you 100% to be present in the Salah from the beginning all the way to the end. That's natural as human beings, your mind is not wandering around, right? It's going to happen. However, that doesn't mean this every single time you make your Salah

00:27:05--> 00:27:18

if this is the case, every single Salah you do it's 100% distraction. Every time you pray for or nothing. You're always distracted. What does that mean? That mean the heart is never there.

00:27:19--> 00:27:33

But for every Salah you do you put an effort to bring your heart into it, then you get distracted. That's understood. We're human beings. And we're going to have to struggle to make it always present bodily and the holder of a very high and stable token.

00:27:35--> 00:28:10

Because when you start your Salah when you start your Salah would complete consciousness of keeping the heart involved in that data. It will continue it will move on and continue for the rest of the solid that means in the middle when you start seeing yourself distracted, what do you do? you force yourself back into focusing on your Avada and a new Santa Barbara. Now he has given you a practical advice. And he's given three actually things. One man led the team will be hired to solokha Tierra How can you bring life back to your salon? How can you bring that live back to Salah.

00:28:11--> 00:28:31

He said number one a man and a woman will call became a de karma the presence of your heart. Your heart has to be there when you make your salon when ma who and you for a woman Lady mahamudra Villa you have to empty the heart from everything else. Everything else besides that salon.

00:28:32--> 00:29:11

When you come to salon, you don't worry about going back to work on time. You don't worry about school, you don't worry about exams you don't worry about anything else when it comes to Salah you only worry about one thing that you may go solo right and perfect and Allah Subhana will accept that from you. But I want to start off with article him How can you achieve that and him the word l him in the Arabic language means basically the strong result. That means you have you have this strong resolute and always determination strong determination on achieving things always determine on shaping goals. So when you start your Salah you have to start with this strong a determination that
