Episode Notes

Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi unravels the secret to Salah in this episode of the Tafsir of Surat al-Fatihah where he acquaints us in detail with the Hadith Qudsi of the conversation between Allah SWT and the one in prayer. The Hadith is as follows:

Abu Hurayrah RA narrated that the Prophet ﷺ said that Allah SWT said: “I have divided the prayer between Myself and My servant into two halves, and My servant shall have what he has asked for.”

Hence, we can extrapolate a few important details from the above:

  • Salah (prayer) is a personal conversation between the slave and his Master between the worshipper and the Lord of the Heavens and the earth.
  • The absolute magnificence of the fact that Allah SWT Himself is responding to us when we recite Surat al-Fatihah in our Salah and the need for us to be in full realisation and awareness of it the next time we perform Salah.

As for a hotter today, I realized that there was a very important headed that I was delaying and delaying to say to you, and inshallah I really need to say it today before we move on because this hadith is perhaps the most important Hadith about students of thought to have and we will come back to it over and over again. So I will say it for the first time today, but you must memorize it and I will refer to it over and over again. And it is really the most detailed Hadith about throated Fatiha and it is narrated in the sight of a man Muslim, the pseudonym of Buddha would the JAMA of Timothy, the Muslim Imam, Mohammed all of these books mentioned it. Abu huraira said that the

00:00:56--> 00:01:41

Prophet system said that Allah said so we now have a hadith Cozzi Abu huraira He is the most famous narrator Hadith, saying I heard the Prophet Mohammed system say that Allah has said, and this is the highest and the most noble level of Hadith had these Pudsey means a sacred head is a noble idea, and it is all good see, because this is second only to the Quran. The Quran is the speech of Allah Hadees could see is also speech of Allah, but it's not in the Quran, Hadith could see is also speech of Allah, but it is not in the Quran. It is preserved in the Hadith of the Prophet system. So the most sacred of all Hadith is how the footsy and it occupies the level. If it is authentic, it

00:01:41--> 00:02:28

occupies a level underneath that of the Koran. So what did our Prophet says that I'm saying that Allah has said, or sung to salata, benei ouabain abdeen, this vein, I have divided the Salah, between myself and between my servant in two equal halves, what the AB edema Sal, and my servant shall get what he asks in his half. So the idea begins, I have divided the Salah, between myself and my servant in two equal halves, and my servant shall get his half IE. So I will get my half Yes, but the servant will get his half as well. Then what did the process Some say that Allah said, then Allah says, when the servant says al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen mean? And the idea goes, idea by

00:02:28--> 00:03:17

idea. So pause here, our Lord said, I have divided the sila between my servant and myself. And then he goes on to talk about sutra till Fatiha only. It is as if Surah Fatiha is the essence of sada and that's why it is called the sada I have divided the Salah between myself and my servant, then the Hadith only mentions Fatiha so far has been called sila. And if you go back to the very first to the second lecture I gave, I said one of the names of the fact they had the some of the Sahaba said is suited to Salah they call this the surah outsider. Why? Because of this hadith that our Lord has called this surah he has said it is the Salah. Why? Because the fact you have embodies everything

00:03:17--> 00:03:56

about our religion, it summarizes the relationship between Allah and us and that is really what our religion is all about. And what is the purpose of the Salah. The purpose of the Salah is to remind ourselves of the purpose of life and that is why Fatiha is called the Salah. So what did our Lord say? I have divided the Salah between my servant and myself in two equal halves. Now pause you How can there be two equal halves when they're seven as we will see, three here, three here and one in the middle. Three for a law and three for the servant and one that is the connection between the two. And that's the beauty of the Fatiha three verses are for Allah subhana wa Tada. The first

00:03:56--> 00:04:44

three, the last three do are for the servant and the middle. ayah is the linkage between Allah and the servant that is economically we are going to stay and we'll come to this that's the whole purpose of our entire series. So what is the Hadees say? Allah says one my servant says Alhamdulillah hear of balada mean? I say hamadani Robbie hamadani Abdi excuse me, my servant has praised me. So Allah is happy. Allah is happy that my servant has praised me. When my servant says out Rahmani Raheem, then Allah says ethna ie Abdi and the difference between Hamdan Sena is very technical. And Santa is a type of ham that is repeated. So Santa is also a type of praise. But

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

generally speaking Santa is a ham that is repeated. And if you look at it a Rahmani Raheem, it has been repeated, is it not? Because how do you begin the Fatiha Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Then you say Alhamdulillah Hara mean that

00:05:00--> 00:05:53

You say again Rahmani Raheem. So it is very appropriate to say Athena or the Abdi that my servant has repeated his praise of me, Athena Abdi, then the servant says, Allah hemmati kyo Medina, and Allah says magetta nee Abdi, my servant has glorified me. magetta means Tim did have a last name is Al Majeed. We translate al Majid as the glorious. So Tim g of Allah means to exalt the status of Allah. And when you say ma de Chioma Deen, you are exalting the status of Allah. So Allah says, My servant has given me exaltation. But jedynie Abdi, then the servant says, he cannot do what er can stir in. So Allah says, This is between me and my servant, this ayah is the link between me and my

00:05:53--> 00:06:39

servant has there been any will been apathy. So this is the linkage now you alone do we worship or a lot and you alone are the one who's helped that we seek and by the way, even in this there are two statements er can average and then he can sustain and he cannot good relates to the first three is we worship you Oh Allah, because you are Allah the rub with Adam in Mandara him the money to Medina, so he can avoid then the next the half surah is the wow Yakubu than the half surah is well what he can sustain you alone are the one who's helped we ask and then the rest of the surah is a help from Allah is Dino Salatu was Salam ala dnmt later moldoveanu himolla Bali so that wow. of iaca with what

00:06:39--> 00:07:20

yakata stain is quite literally dividing the surah into the first half deals with Allah and glorifying Allah and the second half deals with what we want from Allah is Dino Serato. Salima we'll come to that when we come to it. And so quite literally the surah is divided neatly in half. The first three is praising Allah then based on that praise What do we do? Yeah, cannibal we are worshipping Allah because you are Allah and you are above the mean. And you are right man. And you are Rahim and you are the magic of Yama Deen. So we are worshipping you. But then what do we want from you? Oh Allah, he cannot. He cannot stay. We need your help or Allah. After worshipping you, we

00:07:20--> 00:08:04

need your help to worship you. So what do we need from you is Dino Serato was stuck in Serato Lydian and I'm tied to him later in Moldova to him what a body so Allah says, when the servant says he cannot with we're gonna stay in. Allah says, This is between me and my servant. This is establishing the relationship, the linkage between me and my servant. And now that the linkage has been established, when the Abbe de Marcel, my servant shall get anything he wants, what he will ask he will get. So a large xojo is pleased when the servant praises him. And hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen My servant has hamadani Rahmani Raheem, my servant has Athena Alia Maliki Ahmed Dean, my servant has

00:08:04--> 00:08:44

Madani So Allah is happy that my servant is worshiping is praising his glorifying. Then the servant says yuck. And now the way I can assign, Allah says, Now I have a relationship has a benei ouabain Abdi This is now the relationship between me and my servant. Now let him ask as he please, he shall get it without the muscle. And then the servant says it did not set off and was telling him Guide us to the straight path set off already. And I'm telling him The path of those whom you have shown your blessings, how you didn't moldoveanu him not the path of those who have been shown anger one of bollin nor the ones who are astray, then Allah says has the Abdi This is what my servant will get,

00:08:44--> 00:09:22

because he asked me after praising me, after glorifying me, after giving my Hamden Santa and managed now he will get whatever he wants. And so the servant asks and then when he asks Allah subhana wa tada says, The Abdi what the Abdi Marcel, this is for my servant, and my servant shall get anything that he asks for this beautiful hadith of Abu hurayrah narratives of a Muslim and other books I need you to memorize it because we're going to come back to it over and over again and it shallow down because of the weather. We're going to cut it a little bit short inshallah and we will continue this tomorrow. Vanilla heat Allah was set up to Mahabharata capture
