alamanda podemos mo loudhailer in the book, Mutasa, Mahajan, Casa de, that's the abridged version of manhandle Casa de that's the path and the methodology of the travelers to the hereafter. We spoke last time we spoke about the secrets of salah and we mentioned that Salah if someone wants to read it to benefit from the Salah that you focus your main focus should not really be just perfect your Roku Institute and where you position your hand and Salah or where to raise exactly the hands and so on. Although they are no doubt these are part of complimenting you know the essence of Salah itself, but it has to be beyond just the Roku and sujood and these physical aspects of the Buddha and the
Salah. It has to be something beyond that and we mentioned he or him Allah tala mentioned Finally, four things that you need to observe. There are four things that you need to observe in order to bring the best out of your Salah. four things you need to observe in order to get the best out of your Salah number one that he mentioned potholder roll call, which means the presence of your heart. It's not just your eyes, not just the ears, the first thing the presence of the heart. The heart has to be in there meaning when you come to the salon, there's a difference between you coming to salah and having that heavyweight you trying to relieve yourself off and come into the salon and your
heart is looking forward to that moment like the Prophet salaallah semister say I don't know. Yeah billon means bring us comfort with solubilized bring us some comfort means we're tired. We're exhausted relievers would the Salah mean let's bring the salon right now. Today it's the opposite. We think that it's like a burden that we need to get rid of as soon as possible. So the first thing a little called the heart needs to be present there. Number two at the home remodel column, he said that you understand the linguistic aspects of your salon. as basic as saying Allahu Akbar, what does it mean exactly to you? Is it just a statement that is said only to help you translate for traveling
the transition from one position and Salah to the other. Or when you say Allahu Akbar, it means Allah is the Greatest which means is greater than anything and everything that might distract you from your salon. That is something that needs to be taken consideration and need to keep that in your mind. Then he said that whatever distract a person, whatever distract a person from the salon is one of two things Emma, Emma had his show was over here about Anna. These distractions might be something private, something hidden, or something basically secretive or something that is public or something that is outside. So you have external and internal distractions. The external distractions
will distract your eye, use distract your ears, they will distract the eye in the ear, such as having loud noises around you. You might be having some some people talking in the area, map, some TV or radio, computer and so on. These are all distractions, these are external distractions. And he said the best way of doing it, the best way of getting rid of all these distractions is when you choose a place for Salah. You make sure that you pray in a place that has the least if active has any of these distractions. But what is most important, what is most important is to focus on the internal distractions, what distract the heart, not just now the eyes and the ears. What distracts
your heart, and he mentioned here such as a show out of Colombia means what is your biggest concern? What is it? What is the biggest concern that occupy your heart and keep your heart always busy with that that's the main thing. So he said that you need to as much as possible before before you start your Salah when you stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala prepare yourself by by evacuating your heart from all these things emptying the heart from all these showers and, and all these distractions he gave them then he gave a statement called Harlem you need to understand in an ela method cannot learn far away. He said naturally, you need to understand that when sickness or the
disease becomes strong, you need to have a strong medication and strong treatment for it. If the disease becomes very strong, which means if it's spreading all over your body, it means you're going to have to have a very strong medication, a very strong procedure to rid yourself of that sickness or disease. And he's trying to say that this is exactly the same thing for the heart. That's exactly the same thing for the heart. When Ella either COVID jazza bottle masala Giada Illa, anta Nakata Serato Filmora and he says this Ella, and he speaks it about these distractions of the heart. He says when they become strong, they start pulling back and forth. They pull you away from your Salah,
and he tried to pull yourself back into the sun.
All these distractions keep pulling you away a new pen that you putting back, out, in and out, in and out, he says until the Salah is over. And the only thing you will be doing is just fighting these distractions, you will be spending your seven minutes 10 minutes will could be the most valuable 10 minutes of your entire life because it could be the last saw you make. You will be spending these 10 minutes only firing these distractions when you're supposed to be focusing on something more than that enjoying the salah and tasting and savoring the sweetness of your Eva and your Salah. So he says because it is so strong in the heart. That's why you spend your time fighting
all these distractions. Parramatta ludovica, you gave another example, visualizing this example, Carlo Metallica kimathi, Roger in
the example is the just the example of a man who's sitting or resting under a tree. Imagine now handleless springtime, the trees are Mashallah becoming a blossoming become so beautiful. So it's time for you to get outdoors and start spending some time perhaps you know, and the park and so on. So you do that and enjoy your time. So he said it's an example of a person sitting underneath a tree, or the Aeneas fula houfy crew, you're sitting there in order just to think deeply just to enjoy, you know, reflecting, you know, it's a beautiful moment, right now the weather is nice, and you want to do that. So sit under a tree, and just watch you know, the beautiful scenery of the
spring and start thinking about a lot of creation. However, we can add a mechanic or SWAT philosophy to show we show it. He says you're sitting under the tree. And all these sparrows and birds are querying over your head. You're not the only person who's coming you know, enjoying the tree, right? Everybody's around you as one. Even the birds are coming into the tree right now enjoying this tree. And they keep tweeting and keep tweeting and tweeting and you just getting basically, it's too much every time he tries to focus on his on his thoughts. This verse being a distraction for him, call our fear the Akasha button is the Euro habia. And this man was sitting down there, he had a stick in
his hand, or what he's doing to fight these distractions, these birds just keep showing them like this.
He just keeps showing the birds, they would fly. But then what happens? They'll come back again.
Every time he starts focusing on his on his thoughts and his ideas. The birds come back again to distract him. And he keeps just showing them. You might spend an hour like this, what would you do? Nothing. And how do you come up after an hour? exhausted?
You did not enjoy your session. You didn't enjoy the scenery. And you were just distracted all the time. So you did could not put two ideas together. So Paula, that reminds me recently even Bushra for example, my daughter, she sleeps in the you know, the upper level and her room, there is a window and somehow it's because it's closer to the roof. So there are a lot of birds come in that area. And they stop in that that location. Early in the morning, even before fetcher. The birds come and they keep start chirping and start you know tweeting them. And she thinks it's just gonna come stuff a few second few minutes and then just move on to the on business, right. But they keep it
they keep tweeting and tweeting and she she said they're driving me crazy. That's what she says. Which is true. I go to her room and I could hear them. They're very, they're just like above her head. And she's unable to sleep easily because of that she enjoyed the first few times because she thought oh nice beautiful birds, like they're your pets, right? But then if this is going to happen every single day, and every single month from now on, that's gonna be a lot. And that's exactly the same thing. Imagine yourself your Salah, your Salah is just like this beautiful tree. You come down there, you come to Salah with the intention to focus your thoughts on your Avada you want to enjoy a
bad but then all of a sudden, all these birds now all these distractions and thoughts started coming to you call from is the camera crew who had the audacity to finish there's a little behind. Every time you start now focusing on your what you're doing, or your thoughts, your ideas. Suddenly the birds come again. Every time you focus in your solar, suddenly these distractions, these thoughts they keep coming back again. And if you ask yourself, what exactly you think about when you start your salon, you see so many things completely insignificant to you at that time. Like what you ate, what you're going to eat afterwards, your car, the keys,
anything that's completely that is completely insignificant at the time of the Sala
these tiny little thoughts and ideas. They might just come and stop by for a few seconds in your soul. And the entire purpose is just to distract you. That's the work of the shaitaan he keeps distracting to bring in reminding you know with all these things, Carl had a shirt on for chirala who this guy who keeps you know showing these birds with his thick potato ohada online cotton so just for your knowledge, this gun is never gonna work.
We'll never come to a stop means you're gonna continue doing like this because these birds will always come. And that's exactly the segment you need to understand. These distractions will always come to you and your Salah, if you open the door and open the window for them. For an hour, Carlos says in order for you, in order to completely get rid of these birds, you need to cut the tree. Cut the tree so that there's no trees over them. But of course, we're not going to tell you how to cut the salon, cut short or finish it, you need to focus on it called psychedelica shadow to shadow the tree that you need to cut right now shudder to shower, the tree of desires, the whims of the heart,
this is the thing that you need to cut during this time for in either Allah waterfall rocket Asano ha in just about a laugh car. Because when that three of the three of whims and desires when it becomes strong and become spread out and huge is going to start attracting more and more will attract more and more of these ideas and these thoughts skripsi you keep thinking about these issues. But Candida will also feel as God was the Bevilacqua these now thoughts gonna keep coming to this tree of desires and worms just like the birds will come to this tree and the flies will come to the dirts further have a moron fees fees if a man
says you're gonna spend all your life which means you'll waste your entire lifetime just defending yourself and trying to push away these things which cannot can never be fully pushed away from you. You can never push you're pushing these ideas, our familiar but what's available Hardy and the reason for this whatsoever the shower allows you to the garden of God. And the reason behind
planting this tree. Why is this tree growing anyway? I mean you need to stop this tree from growing in your heart the tree of desires and once says the reason this tree is keep growing and growing says one thing about
the love for this world
is the attachment to this world your love for this world. Of course Allah subhanho wa Taala implanted in our hearts, Allah azza wa jal he planted the seeds of loving things of this dunya in order for us at hamdulillah to live and survive, like the love for wealth, the love for for your family, the love for your children, all these things are natural forms of love. But when it comes when it goes beyond that, which is natural, when it becomes your biggest concern, when it becomes the most important thing for you, you start focusing on caring for that tree and you lose the ground the fertile ground of the heart which is supposed to be for something else that is to focus on your
right and your path. And he mentioned some examples clearly I'm or even the face Rahim Allah, one of the righteous predecessors he was asked help to help me to connect suka be a minimal dunya for Salah says tell us when you when you start your Salah do you start thinking about these matters of dunya does it come to you when you pray in your Salah Carla antithetical a sin to fee a hub Bula Yemen and agita Hydra, he says you know, I'd rather being stabbed with swords and spears, rather than get myself busy with that in my Salah.
Because I'd rather to be basically any killed in a battlefield fighting, I'd rather be fighting swords and spears, rather than fighting these thoughts and these ideas, which means I can handle that the sword and the spear. But I cannot just hand I cannot easily handle these things. Which is true.
I mean, some of us every time we try, you try and you're allowed to focus and enjoy it will always have this thing that would sour your a bite on your soul. Every time you try to focus. Suddenly you find yourself again getting distracted. And he said then whalum anacapa dunya Filipino kalbi Amritsar says you need to understand that completely eradicate this love eradicating the slough for the dunya from your heart. It's something difficult Imran Saab, it's hard to achieve, meaning he's telling you you'll never be able to do that 100% was Allah who will could lead to disease, getting rid of it completely from the heart is so scarce can barely achieve that then so what you need to do

Alamein and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who guides and Allah subhanho wa Taala who will give you the assistance and the help to achieve that. Then he comes down to the third point. Remember we said there are four ways four points in order to achieve that. That focus in your salon enjoying a better one man said he said the third point right now at Dollywood Illa well haber
Given Allah subhanho wa Taala a Tavi, which means a glorifying Allah azza wa jal will have a reverence, reverence and respect that Allah subhana wa tada Almighty He deserves in your heart karlova delicate Allah dementia. And you can achieve that by doing two things or recognizing two things. How can you recognize the haber and the tardy mobilization? I mean, I know we all say that we also talk about all the time, Allah is the is the greatest, we all we say Jalla Jalla Allahu as our gel which is the meaning the exact meaning of the word utsavam glorifying Allah subhanho wa Taala we always say that, but how much of that haber? How much of that glorification really is there
in our hearts karlova delicato Allah dimension you can achieve that by observing two things number one, Marika to Jana Allah tala Muhammad by recognizing the true glory, the blue the true greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala the true glory and greatness of Allah azza wa jal. So how would you know that?
How would you recognize that?
You will recognize that by recognizing a smile on sifat the names and the attributes of a large panel will tell you the Beautiful Names and the attributes of Allah zildjian give an example. If you know that Allah azza wa jal hears everything, would you just say something that displeases Allah subhana wa Tada. You wouldn't.
And if you know that Allah subhanho wa Taala truly, and you know that you know it but if you truly observe that all the time that Allah sees you everywhere you are, Would you dare do the things that you will feel ashamed to do while knowing Allah subhanaw taala is watching you. You wouldn't. But we are human beings in science, we tend to forget. And that forgetfulness, which makes us lose the meaning and the essence of recognizing the glory of Allah azza wa jal and the creator of the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala Amina Chateau de la Mancha when she when she she said basically when the woman The old woman who her husband whose husband, he pronounced the word the heart over
her on her, just like Dr. La basically separation saying his wife like his mother to him that his private life his mother, so she went with her sort of life lesson I'm arguing your case for him. You're a solo he's an old man. I mean, you're a solo What can he do right now? He just said that word. Is there any way we could just you know, reconcile, can we amend this whole thing and so on? And the prophet SAW Allah said he was telling her It's over. It's like a final divorce. There is no way to return to Him. It's over. So she was arguing with Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and it truly she was arguing with Rasulullah sallallahu because that's what Allah said in the Quran. Then,
certainly a lot into the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the role of Dr. Kazemi Allahu codility to God, Luke, a few zody have attached to it Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala he heard he heard semi accountability to God look the statements of the woman who was arguing with you. She was arguing with you to judge DeLuca physiology in regard to the her husband was taking it along she was complaining and she was she was expressing her griefs Allah subhana wa tada what La Jolla smelled hot water Kuma and the last panel without also said yes, Mount Howard Akuma. He heard the conversation, how it was how it went between you and him. I showed the love that on her when she
reported the story. She was amazed by this revelation. I mean if I say that if now I pronounced the ayah to you. What would amaze you about this ayah anything special depends on how deep your understanding of the asthma and the names and attributes of Allah subhana wa tada is for you. I should recognize something not Not anyone can recognize isn't. She said called Subhana man was as simple as what she said Hannah Praise be to Allah azza wa jal, who's whose hearing is is accomplishing all sounds and all voices. He hears everything's a panel with Anna. And she was saying, well, I just I swear by luck because I was there in that room. You know, the house of
Chateau de la was very small. It was tiny room. When you say the house of Russia. It's not like a mansion, not 234 rooms you get lost admit in between. and then the hallways. There was just one small room on the property used to make sujood he had to poke her leg so she could pull them away. She could find a spot for research there. But she said I was there when this woman was arguing with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in one of the corners of the house while she was arguing with the prophets of Allah send them a smile minha
means I can hear some and I miss some IV I hear a few things and I just miss some of what she's saying. Meaning it wasn't clear for me what she was saying she didn't want to make a case out loud. So she was kind of trying to just negotiate with the profits of the law seller. And she said then Allah azza wa jal Minh said focus
someone whom above seven heavens in a manner that says his majesty subhanho wa Taala. He heard that conversation.
She said I was there, and I wasn't able to hear everything. And here's the last soldier from both the main focus of his sermon what he was able to hear all these things. Now imagine if you have for every attribute of Allah zoldan every name of allah subhana wa Taala, the Most Merciful, the of forgiving Ar Rahman AR Rahim, Allah Aziz al Jabbar element token, Allah for the web, Amazon alhadeff imagine all these beautiful names of attributes of Allah subhana wa Taala. You truly understand the essence and the meaning of each and every one of them. Why don't you recognize the glory of Allah azza wa jal and his greatness that's what it means when you stand before our last panel with Allah.
And that's what it means when you say Allah Akbar.
You're saying Allah is the Greatest. And if you're saying Allah is the Greatest meaning if you say Allah is the Greatest, meaning that he is greater than everything and anything that should distract a few masala then you will be able to achieve that Eva properly. So that's the first thing he says. That is the first thing. You recognize the glory of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his greatness. The second thing in order to have the tedium the true demon glorification of Allah subhanho wa Taala says when I refer to have power to neffs when my refer to Hakata knifes were anomalous data. And also recognizing contrary to that, how significant your neffs is compared to Allah subhanho wa Taala
and that neffs should be should surrender itself to Eliza it is this a servant and slave of Allah Spano. Tada. So when you recognize how high and how great Allah subhana wa tada is, you recognize how insignificant and this is a servitude if you're next to Allah subhanho wa Taala. This huge gap which is no comparison whatsoever between both this this huge gap should give you the essence of recognizing your position when you stand before the last panel tada and Sala. So when you come to the ibadah and you realize that now I know myself, I need that mercy for last panel. I need I need the help, I need the assistance and he is the one who have all of this because you know the
greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So once you get to that point, but first of all alumina didn't matter if a man had Milan manufacturing, because of recognizing these two things, the greatness of Allah subhana wa tada and the insignificant view of yourself and your essence, before Allah subhana wa Tada, you will recognize two things, you will have the knowledge of two things number one, and is the kana and number two, for sure. As for realistic Anna, that means humbleness, humility, humbleness, and humility. You wouldn't come to the Salah with arrogance, like I just want to finish it and go back again to work, right? Like I'm doing a favor right now. I'm just making this as an
obligation because I have classes right now I need to just do it and move back again to my class. So it becomes like a burden, more than an opportunity for you to seek forgiveness and mercy seek the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala it gives you humbleness and humility. You recognize yourself and the kindness of our last panel, Darla, you get that humbleness and humility. The second thing that you recognize is that gives you the knowledge of two things number one, humbleness humility. And number two, l horseshoe l horseshoe we talk about OSHA. It's not just about fixing your sight and your eyes on your the position of your salute. That's not just the OSHA. We explained that in many
other sessions before. And so sure the horseshoe of everything, the horseshoe of the heart, the horseshoe of the mind, the harsher of the eyes, and the harsher of the entire body. The harsher of the thoughts even everything become harsher. And the meaning of become cautious here is become like stationary, focusing on one thing, your hands once one move, because you focus your focus and you have kosha in your solar. That's why when one of the people was making salah and they said he started scratching, his head scratching, it was reported that one of the Salafi said about him called aloha Shaka Zulu la Jara. If his heart had kosher, his body would have kosher.
If the heart had that for sure, the body would have the whole show. But when the heart is busy fighting all these distractions, how do you think the body will focus on the Salah? So these two qualities are very important to have that cushion. And it's the kind of humility and have your insulin shallow to bottle data. And how can you do that? Again, recognize it two things, the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his glory. And number two, your position before Allah azza wa jal, you're in significance and that you
service and a slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala con woman Derek, how can you also achieve that? Raja Raja which means you always have hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala for in Noseda an idol hope it's not just feeding Allah so they're not just sheep of Allah Spano. tala. No, it's that fear associated with hope. You're afraid from Allah subhana wa Tada. But for all of you hope you hope for his mercy. You know, remember the children when they, when they when they when they make things that makes their parents upset. Makes your mom upset makes you that upset? A child, get intimidated, get afraid, this guy gets freaked out. They're so afraid. But at the same time, what do they have? In
addition to that fear? They have hope these are my dad, this is my mom still. They're gonna still have mercy on me. So you have that meaning it's not like all the way fear. No fear would hope that our last panel does have forgiving, Most Merciful part of a cabin more of them in many can you have? How many people do you know that they really they give, they give this glory or they glorify kings and humans, and they are afraid of them? The hope is that what they're afraid because of their oppression, they're not afraid because they love them. Now they're afraid because of their oppression. Carla, can I urge you guru and how many of them would really just be looking for the
goods that you can bestow upon them? Well muscle Li m Li ne akuna Raja be salatu salam and you will you make your Salah you need also to to expect the reward you need to have hope you get the reward for what you're doing not just to get over with it. You need to think of that you need to be rewarded for what you do. Can I have them in toxicity and a cop just like you're afraid if you miss the site you're going to be punished for that you also need to have that hope that you will be rewarded for the good deeds that you're making and that's and that's your about your solar power embedded masala and it's also incumbent upon the masala who is making salah and you and your
daughter called boo and the coalition masala Calvo and the coalition masala that you bring your heart to everything you do in your Sunnah me when you start making that you're thinking about it, you focus in on it. When you move on to the Roku, you're focusing on it. When you go to the studio, you're always attentive, you're always paying attention to what you do in your salon fader semiotica Elmo as in fell Liam's fell
fell you masculine leader our affiliates Linda Daniel Tiana, when you hear the call for the ad and then try to visualize try to think of the call for the Day of Judgment this call for the ad and when people start coming to the message when you come here driving or walking, you see some of the brothers and sisters who live around the masala the masjid they walk right well lights and amazing sight you see some people coming from one direction others from the other direction somehow from different direction these are they all meet just by the door? Yes here will handle your shake and say how are you doing? But on that day? I don't even know you are you wouldn't even recognize
anybody because I'm too busy caring about my stuff right now. Carla, remember when you put when you hear that? It just like calling you for the day of judgment call evolution merrily, Java and when you hear this other means what time to respond right away and instantly you respond to the Salah while younger man he was younger yonder matter eg meaning on the day of judgment will you be called to come attend before Allah subhanho wa Taala what exactly you come for you come with with with what will what you've done so you want to present something that's exactly the same thing when it comes to the Salah when you hear that you need to come into the get ready and prepared and bring something

that for the guys when you start getting ready and dressing something specific for the masjid and something just for a Salah when you do that says you remember to remind yourself that you're covering your physical our perhaps from the people, and that's exactly for the article I wrote about when he was a hustler, he let he lie in the hollow. So then as you cover yourself physically, remember the thing that needs to be covered and no one else sees because for Allah subhanho wa Taala the things that you do secretly the things that you do no one else is there. The thing that's only between you and Allah subhana wa tada and will lie we all of us are full of these things. They are
And big, major in mind we all filled with that. And we all have that moment of weakness and we always wish that Allah subhana wa tada Allah keep this hidden you know Allah don't disgrace me don't expose this to the public. So when you do that, and it's time before the last panel data, remind yourself for that as well. I need his mercy I need to come to Allah to hide me from my own weaknesses. He says God Allah sathyaraj Lucha and who said what he said and who said no one can you can't cover up this you know before the last panel that you can make it uncovered it up here in dunya from the people, but from Allah so again, there is no way you can cover this up. Color we're
in what and how you can feel them and you recognize that the only way to erase these things beneath them. Another means regret. What higher shyness, feeling ashamed of what you've done, while hope and fear from Allah subhana wa tada and being exposed to the public God while he does stuff but Allah tribler now that you stand in front of us panel that onsala were either stuck battle tiblet difficult sort of our job, another jihad, Elijah debating lakita now you know that when you stand facing for Salah, what exactly you're doing, you're reminding yourself, all these distractions.

That's a reminder, the reason you pray first in that direction, to remind yourself, all these distractions are different directions, they're taken a different directions. The way you physically turn towards one direction, you need to make your heart also turn towards one direction. And that's the last panel what I'll call for sort of vocal de Illa Allah Allah Mandela, just like to physically turn to one direction, then turning your heart towards the direction of Allah subhanho wa Taala it's more worldly to focus on to worry about for karma unknown later, Elijah till Beatty

You cannot do this unless you turn yourself away from everything else. You have to turn yourself away from everything else, even if it was the most valuable thing to you, which would be behind your back, you're going to have to give it your back and face the direction of debate and karma. Just like when you do that good article called Leon soulfood. Allahu taala. In Lebanon, Salafi and masiva. Similar to this is the heart. The way you cannot face the direction of the Kaaba unless you turn away from everything
else. Your heart will not face the direction of Allah subhanho wa Taala unless you turn your heart away from everything else, but Allah subhana wa Khan will either convert or you have masala means my dear brother, basically brother or sister when you make your Salah when you say Allahu Akbar Fela you can even call Albuquerque Santa Albuquerque Santa

But your heart is getting busy with everything else.

Let your heart contradict what your tongue is saying. The unknown either Can I feel felt shaken up? bottlemen Allahu taala. That says because if there is something else in your heart, greater than Allah azza wa jal, then you're lying. You're lying with that statement that you say Allahu Akbar, Father, and your Kunal Hawa, and the UK Barbie Akbar, with a really exotic and Wakata who Allah tala tala says so be careful, don't allow your desires become greater, greater than then Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you have the evidence for that. The evidence for that is greater than allows the region that your preference during Salah is to focus on these things, rather than a large region and
worshipping the last panel of elephants Allah. So that's an evidence that your mind and your heart are busy with these desires.

I would not succeed and survive without you Without your help you're alone? If you cannot, when you say those words, think about this. Yeah, I do believe in a shutdown regime I seek refuge with the last panel data from the Shaitaan from the devil, the cast one you just see can refer you to the last panel if you remind yourself at the beginning of Salah. So you focus on this call of Phantom analysts, the editor here the junior lions apana that's how you do you seek refuge with ALLAH looking at short term with
the last panel Tada. Faisal intelligible called Vika. If you don't seek that shelter with your heart, not just with your tongue, if you don't seek that shelter, and that protection through your heart and your heart can Akala mukalla your Quran your speech will be nonsense,
will be will be just completely null. Nothing meaning nothing. Because what does it mean? If you say, oh, wha equipo de la and your heart to seek revision something else? It's nothing, it means nothing. But what I found nanomedicine and when you start reciting, try to understand what you're saying. Try to understand the meaning of what you're saying. What, for whom have you called me? And bring that the profound understanding by heart, which means that you're
contemplating right now it's just it's beyond just the citation. Because we are using the heart and the kolayca Alhamdulillah of me, saying Alhamdulillah grateful and thankful to Allah azza wa jal, the Lord of all the universe, all the creation, everything, all the words, when you say Alhamdulillah horrible and I mean, you know, remember one time when many times I mentioned and the hookah Andrews, there's many people when you ask them, How are you doing? What do they say? This Al Hamdulillah I cannot complain. I said you already complained.
The moment you said hamdulillah I cannot complain. You indeed you complained already in a in a hidden way. It's a complaint in disguise. And some other people they say Alhamdulillah it can be verbal handler. What does that mean? means you're not satisfied. You're not contempt for what you like what you have. So whenever you said handler, let it come out, say Alhamdulillah which means I'm happy I'm satisfied. Well, light makes you happier, makes you more energetic, and makes you even healthier and even focused veterinary better. But if you said hamdulillah with resentment, you know when you say Alhamdulillah and you have that kind of resentment to accept that I'm truly
Alhamdulillah thankful to Allah Xhosa what benefit your heart is going to get out of this. You're going to say by words, but your heart is not really happy, not excited about being grateful and thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala Carla was to have the look for then when you say then you remind remind yourself with his look supanova data, the meaning of look means the subtle, the subtle care that our last panel data is showing for you. Things that you cannot even comprehend because they are constant and not visible to you like what waking up every day in the morning.
When everybody when some other people they want to wake up, waking up healthy, and being able to sleep six, seven hours when other people cannot sleep one hour. If you start thinking about all these Muslims, panela and even non Muslims around the world, who are sufferings and refugee camps, like in Syria, situation in Bangladesh, people in their own homes. They're not they're not any safe anymore. Though. hinga the people who are just roaming in the oceans and the seas they have no shelter from anything except from a lustful with Allah azza wa jal when you think about all of these things, you realize that's how you have all these blessings. Remember the story of the man who serve
us serve the last 70 years and on the day of judgment when he was told to enter agenda by the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada what it is in Colorado, How come I've been worshipping for seven years I want to know how how much this is going to benefit me. So Allah subhanho wa Taala said just way the name of Allah buzzer the blessing of the site, I want you to read this for him only compared to the 70 years of acts of worship, just compare that what happened there wasn't sufficient
seven years of constant worship will not sufficient to sell hamdulillah for one blessing such as the site so when the went from my pocket when his deeds were just go, they were all like nullified. It's like nothing compared to the to the center of the site called Arab bill Andromeda. I admit I'll go with your mercy and go with your mercy for Subhanallah that's that's an amazing thing. Well, when you think
Think about these things every day you wake up, you open your eyes you see yourself in the mirror hamdulillah that
you can find your ways you can even remember what the bathroom from the kitchen. And somehow you have that. Yes, you might sometimes wake up and disoriented that's different. But normally you wake up and you could recognize your way where you're going. You can do things that handler normally, these are all president colludes for law. So the remember the subtle Name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When you say R Rahman r Rahim,
the Most Merciful the most compassionate panel with Allah. tala dr Amato. Remember his greatness, his greatness when you say Mally Chioma did that he is the king. Many Chioma did. He is the king of the Day of Judgment. When Maliki oma did he is the owner of all what you're going to see over there all the stations of that day of judgment. He owns that sapan on with that he owns a gin he owns Johanna, he owns everything that you're going to see over there. When you remember all of this. You remember the greatest of Allah subhana wa tada con, Baka Delica PGM a method Lu, similar to this remind yourself the meaning of what you say in every every citation called walk through winner and
neurotic Navy overall the Allahu anhu wa and the hopper office allottee he was one of the better the righteous predecessors. He said he it was reported that he one day decided in his Salah for either a nuclear off in poor certain modesitt Allah subhanaw taala says fader no Clara finacle you know what's enough for you?
What is that? The horn basically an encore, which is the trumpet of Seraphim when he now announces the beginning of the day of judgment. Farida knocker of Naco he reported that when he decided this ayah and his Salah for her, Amanita he died instantly.
Now, as you can see, he was he and he aged in his life, though, wasn't like he was 510 years old. And then he remembered that he died. Now he lived his life. But somehow he got to a point. He got to a point of understanding and caring and worrying about this whole idea. And what he's going to be presenting on a day of judgment that one day in his Salah, he decided this ayah faridan Oprah Naco, which means and remember when it's Rafi is going to blow into the trumpet. Remember that? So it seems that the whole the whole, like all the movie of events came in his mind regarding what's going to happen. Allows description of all this and sort of sort of
sort of duckweed uncertain in Chicago. All these scenes about the Day of Judgment. They were so scary to him that his heart couldn't take it anymore. He died. Now, of course, Carlos maza Ileana, who saw what a typical hell for us in doTERRA. He says this is only how it only happened to him, because he visualized that he was able to he was able to picture this in his mind that it caused him tellef which means destroyed it destroyed him completely. Of course. Remember including Rahim Allah tala in one of his books, when he explained why the Sahaba who received this ayah we don't hear them recited this ayah and then cracking that basically like that. We hear some of the setup of sada mo
la after their time, there is a desire, and they just they die. Why did why Why? Well, what was the case is because of the habit of the alarm that I'm home, they were able to balance it, they were able to balance allow for a job, fear of Allah subhanaw taala and hope they were able to balance spirituality with practicality in the dunya because they have this huge spiritual energy in their hearts, but they still were able to live their lives. But those people are set up a solid amount of data seems that their and their focus on on the on these events and and spirituality and understanding of the meaning of these events and so on was so great, that they they got to the point
that their hearts could not handle it could not really handle it too much likely so however the last time they had we finished with this and shallow data was such a futile query cataldo was such a futile query, aka Tabata, when you bow down and record, you need to humble yourself because that's a position by the way. That's a position. It was one of the hardest positions for the Arabs. The Arabs who received the Quran back then, when they received it south in Macon sujood was much easier for them than make a record because the position of record bowing down on record position, it shows the greatest middle which means just like any humility and humiliation to that extent for them, so it
was very hard for them to do that. But when they were doing it for the last panel tada
it easy for them. It made it so much easier for them. And it says when you do that, remind yourself with this with this humbleness to Allah subhanho wa Taala. If we refuse to Judaic Hazara to do, and when you go all the way down by putting your forehead, which is the greatest thing you can you pride yourself with that your intellect, and you put it all the way down on the ground on the floor, what does that mean? you're increasing the show of humility and humbleness to Allah subhanho wa Taala. The unlikable Dr. nafsa malda. Because you're just sending a message to your own knifes. You're sending a message to a nurse by saying listen, this is your position. This is the value. This is how
significant you are before Allah subhanho wa Taala you're going to go down all the way down putting your forehead all the way down before the last quarter. What are the what are that alpha, you know, honestly, he decides to do the Torah will let the holy men and then you remind yourself that you bring in a lawsuit for a lawsuit. You are the branch You are a product or byproduct of what of Earth and dirt. So when you go all the way down putting your hands and your forehead on the ground, you reminding yourself Listen, you're going back to where and where you came from. This is your start, this is your reality, this is your position you just made up of dirt alone measure from this and you
should be returning to him. But
what the family of God evoke. And whenever you say that sense of how to build Allah subhanaw taala in the UK, which means try to savor the sweetness, that the spiritual sweetness of that not just by
speaking them out or just you know, crying your eyes out. You need to also sweet savor the sweetness of these bites difficult unto me the spiritual sweetness of this car, while I'm another salata via the shuttle Bettina. Now he's coming to conclusion says Harlem and no another are Salatu beheaded. She wrote about in a cerebral leggera and called the Masada she's know that if you observe these things, what he just was teaching us about observing these secrets of Salah when you will observe these conditions in order to purify yourself these are now hidden conditions of purify perfect and your Salah sub ledger I'll call them in a soda. This will clear your heart from the soda which means
the rust. This will clear it from the rust, the rust from the dunya the residues of all the things that things that we do in this dunya leaves marks on us and our hearts. So that will will completely clear and clean. Clear your heart from that rust will have sorted Anwar the fee and let the visa to Thailand mahatama to my booth. And then by doing so by cleared from the rest from this dunya you will shine it with the lights that will help you see the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala your deity The one whom you worship, what Allah Allah Asahi, what am I a widow ha la la, la la de moon, what Allah Allah sorry, it means this would help you on your heart, your hope your heart see the
secrets. But everything that Allah has put in this creation in this universe were married to her in the honeymoon. And not so many people would recognize that only Alhamdulillah loon and Halle moon, those who have the knowledge, the profound knowledge, those who will understand and comprehend the essence of it says if you want to really be one of them, you need to focus on this from and who are calling on the sort of Salah as for those who are just standing and caring only about the image of the salon, how to raise the hands and where and just putting where to put the hands and so forth all of these although apart from the Salah, but if this is the only thing you care about, it is the only
thing you care about doing a turkey Santa Monica without focusing on the meanings for in hula para la shaman danika into Judo, and you are not going to be able to recognize anything, you will not be able to even to see the distractions at all.
You won't be recognizing that Salah will pass by you finish your Salah, and you don't even recognize it was wrong, or that it was useless or you didn't get benefit from it, you did not feel it. And so because your heart is not recognizing any of these troubles, but if you really focus in on clearing, clearing the heart and then fill it with the neural from Allah subhanho wa Taala that's when we'll be able to show a lot of data to recognize now as a final advice and shout louder for parents in particular for the parents. What do you teach your children Salah. I know that we always focus on making sure that our kids they press a long time that our kids that they make the Salah properly in
terms of how to pronounce the ayah how to pronounce that car making the ruku answer dude, definitely they have to perfect that they have to perfect that. In addition to that teach your children the profound meaning of Salah the essence of it
Don't wait for them to come and ask saying, What's the point? Why am I doing this anyway, don't let them wait until then you need to teach them that they need to understand the value of their Salah is beyond just making it five times a day. It's not a burden on you, as much as a blessing. You need to be happy and excited that Allah has blessed you with connecting with him five to five times a day, you should be actually blessed by that that has given you this opportunity to connect with him and giving yourself the chance to Charlotte with Allah to connect with Allah as origin, shallow terracotta, Allah subhanaw taala make your solar any beneficial and make your solar harsher and
perfect. Because if you really can do that, as we know, it's the first question of the day of judgment, I would mess around too. So the first thing you're going to be asked about on judgment day will be about solar, if it was perfect hamdulillah everything else will be easier after that. So please make sure to comprehend that make sure to implement that and remember what he said it's not going to be 100% you're going to try your best and keep trying keep struggling until you get there in Charlotte.
Next time when we come back, we'll be discussing specific secrets and other etiquette related to Salatu. Juma inshallah Allah Azza wa Taala. Any questions?
A question about closing the eyes and Salah let's say I cannot. I'm praying let's say in a public place you're going to school so there's a classroom you have all these colors, all these posters around and so on. I just cannot cannot comprehend because those distractions Can I close my eyes? Can I just close my eyes and Salah? Well, it's not recommended. It doesn't invalidate the Salah. But it's not recommended that you close your eyes and Salah you need to keep your eyes open and try to force yourself to focus on on on that. However, however, remember what Rahim Allah Allah has also mentioned that it's like a final resort. Which means if the destruction was so great, that you are
unable to focus on the Salah completely that you lose your horseshoe, then yeah, go ahead and do it. Because having that for sure is much more important than keeping your eyes closed or open while on.
Now, the question is, what about sudduth? records? When you're in surgery, it's easier to close the eyes anyway, because it's very hard to keep your eyes open. So can I just freely close my eyes and just focus on my salon messages? What closing the eyes? The answer again? It depends. If you if you can still keep it open, that's fine. But usually you have to somehow close the eyes. If I feel if I feel more for sure and closing my eyes and such that, should I do this again. If if you're going to get distracted too much, then close the eyes. My biggest concern of specific if you don't think I'm alone, is that what do I close your eyes and you go not just into asurion Sakina and tranquility
will cover and then you fall asleep. Milan? So be careful with that. Yes.
The question is, I start to set my Salah, let's say you do a lot of rasa, for example by yourself.
Or even with the Imam. And in the middle of my Salah. I didn't like what I did. It's not good enough. In terms of your answer, Jude perfect. I did my Roku itemized. But in terms of quality, I just don't feel I have done a great job yet. And it's not to the level that I was hoping for. Can I then break my salon cape Salaam and then start over again?
Can I do that? What do you guys think? would you do it?
But if you do it if you if we say yes and you do it, how would you know that the second time is better than the first time.
So what's going to happen? You're going to decide maybe the third record or man one more like let me start over again. And then you start over and over again and again and again and again and you fall into the worst fossa become so obsessed. And this obsession ruins people's lives, not just Salah in some people they get so so obsessed and so scared to perfect their rabada that unfortunately, they mess up their lives. I have seen some people like that. I remember actually we had somebody in a
long time ago. He was obsessed with taharah. So when he makes photo Myskina he follows specific opinions and felt that you have to match the intention with the first part of the photo. So every time he wants to make his will do he has to make sure that his Nia for the for the for the photo begins when he washes his face. So I remember we had a load of a bus all of us we can actually print that message actually and he entered the bathroom or like everybody else started making model
We all about 50 people perhaps you know big bus actually 50 people they came they made there was the bathroom, they made the auto repaired the sooner repaired the farm. And by the time we're leaving them as he came up from the auto area.
And it's unbelievable. We also had another person named moschini had obsession with the Sala obsession with us Allah. So when he comes to the salon, he had to have a specific and format for it. He even though he comes in Jannah, he brings with him his own prayer rug, a white sheet basically holds put it down there. And he wants to make sure that the location is is clean and pure. Because he's obsessed with the hora too much as well, that he needs to make sure the place of Salah is unpure every time he does is always in white. So basically he's just so obsessed with that too much. And he wasn't following and following any particular set that does that. It was Johnny from other
suitable Gemma, but still he was obsessed with everybody. So my concern, if every time you start your Salah, you think it wasn't good enough, let me do it again. Let me do it again, that you will fall into this into this trap of the shaitaan. So I'd rather not to do that instead, if you would like to do an a better job, do nothing.
You finish this out of the hood, you will not have very happy with what you did when you make your son focus on it. You did the sooner you got 80% of what you would desire to have seen what do another two and keep doing that until it until you focus on it. Michelle altana
another question Gemma. Yes.
na, let's say you're praying behind any amendments or the Torah.
And then the Imam he decided an idea that made you just go out without saying anything, of course, but just it just took you by surprise. And you start thinking about this. If you start thinking about this over and over again over and over again and the master is going on, there's a citation, the man finished two pages already. And you're still focusing on this idea, then the man goes into the pawnbroker, then you realize oh Subhanallah I missed all this citation with that, does that mean that you lost the assurance Allah?
because I cannot say that because you are focusing on the meaning of an ayah truly, which means it bringing you to focusing on your Salah, but at the same time you kind of got disconnected a little bit from the moment that sense that doesn't invalidate your salado it does not invalidate the Salah at this point. But does that mean that you lost your assurance Allah? It depends a lot on
So what did you do?
after stopping for about 510 minutes you're trying to figure out which is come next you couldn't so what did you do?
What if you don't remember that?
The question is if you start the solid so you don't emulate for example, or even for salah and then after reciting few
years you might get gem basically forgot what comes next. He tried to remember you repeat the same again the previous one so that could help you know in the transition. It didn't work out. And you've tried again it didn't work out you tried again they work hard then you stop they're trying waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting. How long should you wait before you move on from this ayah I would say if you if you want to really enjoy your effort and your Salah if you couldn't get if you couldn't remember this, then move on to another surah
and if you could not remember anything at all start the citation from the beginning. Let's say if you if you are done to three pages, and then you your mind got jammed on this ayah then start from the beginning. Back again from the beginning. That's all right. It's okay. And even if you got to the same point and you stopped one more time, then make your record. Go to the ruku answer dude. And don't try to think about it in judo. But when you come back and Salah recite again from the beginning there is nothing wrong of repeating the same song over and over again hopefully inshallah Allah that would be an incentive for you. After you finish your Salah you open the most have to see
which area that caused you this trouble and you will never forget it.
You will never forget that is how I remember
one of my friends chef, Mohammed Salah is an amendment coach right now. Maybe he's watching or hearing this one day inshallah. We used to be students in Medina
Now, he was after Saturday, he remembered in the risotto salon. So he was reciting. And he was memorizing parts of sorbitol. Bukhara was memorizing part of sorts of Bukhara, the one of the lungs. I had consulted Baccarat valida to Donna Donna Kalani, Cameron innamorata, you tomorrow down the aisle that speaks about breastfeeding, nursing.
And I was at a distance from I could see him basically. And he was trying and I was always doing my own thing. And he was doing his own thing as well over there. He kept repeating that over and over again, from after failure until after sunrise, trying to memorize one I almost like a half a page. And it wasn't clicking.
It wasn't clicking at all for him. trying and trying over and over again over and over again. And Subhanallah it just it's not it's not getting in there. It's not registering. And just keep trying to imagine yourself spending almost two hours, two hours from after fetcher until way after shadow after sunrise. Just trying to memorize one if
it was like torture for him, I can see his frustration because I can see his head keep shaking and moving. And then just kill you know, basically going right left and so on. Finally, almost he gave up.
So how long he gave up almost like close, the most heavy almost was almost crying.
He tells me and I saw a guy coming close to him. An older guy was sitting on the side. Suddenly the guy moved and came next to him.
He shook hands with him. I saw him basically having some very short conversation for a few minutes, or maybe a few seconds, even panela. And then he left him with him and left him. He left smiling. And my friend was smiling back again and smiling. Then when it was over after maybe a few more minutes, I find him he just closed the mishap and it just basically we move back to what happened because I was trying to decide I've tried to memorize the word that you're doing. I don't know how they came in and I've just been trying and and trying and trying and trying. It was registering at all and I got really frustrated because I finally I just gave up said when I gave up he said This
old man came to me he was very happy and smiling. He says Mashallah Holic Mashallah Good job good job. Keep trying, he says says the man came out of nowhere and just keep telling him just keep doing it. I know you'll you'll you'll get there and Sharla you don't get it just keep trying. He says have one of those few words from this man it just like wow, all this stress was gone. All the stress was gone. He says in less than 10 minutes I got it.
And after they just say God, I must have again spending two hours and memorize it. But in less than 210 minutes he just got it. So he realized it's not about how much money you repeat as much how much you earn is probably your heart is into it. And yes, you might be trying to normalize but your heart is distracted as you've opened up must have even as you recite he tried to memorize your mind is somewhere else. You're memorizing an idea. But your mind is on what's coming next. How much is left? How much have I done all these concerns will distract you. So the best way to memorizing shallow data is just keep your heart clear and focus on that and just enjoy the dissertation that event
that's the best way of doing it in a shallow data so that's applies in the same way so for Salah if you could not remember that I just move on to recite if you would like to recite the sort of from the beginning if not recite another surah and if you're not if you don't you could even recite just a short surah like Paula had and then you move on to the record and then you come back again and so on. So just do that inshallah hopefully we'll never forget an IRA again. Well, lo Dada I think it's time is up by Nance panic alone. 100 I should have learned
