So this question
it deals with the the issue of the silence Allah as we're all aware that an asset is a silent salah and obviously the last struck as a motive in Asia and the sooner and in effect, these are silence Allah. Now a lot of people they misunderstand what does it mean that the Salah is silent, and they unfortunately make the very, very, you know major error, it is a huge error of keeping their mouth shut, and
imagining Salat Al Fatiha imagining through the loss and nothing moves. And they're just standing there.
And in their heads they're saying
in their heads, that is actually not a recitation. Now, our follow harmless setup allows for given what they didn't know. But technically, the Salah is not valid. Technically, Allah if you didn't know was gonna forgive you. But from now on now that you've heard this response, never ever just stand there silently when you are praying, you know, if you're behind the Imam, then there's a controversy Do you recite or not, but if you're alone, if you're the one, you know, leading the site, I mean, you know, praying on your own, the silent prayer means that you recite in a manner that the person next to you doesn't hear. Now, what is the minimal level of being silent? Our
scholars mentioned, the minimal level is that your tongue and your lips move with the pronunciation and with the expulsion of air, but so silently that even the one next to you might not hear what you are saying. Okay, so I mean, if I were to do this, you will not hear it with a microphone.
Like that. Okay, I'm reciting, if somebody were to be standing right here, they might just hear a man and then Maliki they might hear that they cannot hear the whole thing Okay. That is the minimal level of being silent that air is coming out and your tongue and your mouth are verbalizing The, the the words but it is so soft, that even a person next to you cannot hear and then even better than this or higher than this is you do it basically in a whisper. Okay. And that is silence. That's what is that is what is meant by the silent prayer. And the idea is that you recite in a manner that people around you can hear Alhamdulillah your beloved I mean, by the way, the fact that it is
Giardia or susiya these are not account or what you bought and in case accidentally you you you you forget or what not your Salah is valid so in case you recite you know motive Syria for example, you know, this is something that you're alone and you just recited hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Ahmad Rahim it's a Syria manner it's against the sooner but it's not you haven't broken a watch if you haven't done something that the Salah will be null and void but better than this is to of course do the Jehovah for motivation and Virgil and Siri Of course so accidentally if you set it
out loud, your Salah is not bolted, it's a sooner so to be a city and God the point being that the she asked the proper way, and so it must be enunciated and we know this as well because our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite insalata Zohar and salata, laaser and people in the first row, if they listened carefully, they could hear a phrase or two and know which sutra that he recited. Okay, so the fact that people in the first row that's four feet behind, can just barely pick up what is being said, illustrates that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite Syria in a way that even three feet away of phrases hurt, okay, and that's the meaning of being
silent. Now, you said about the rules of Tajweed and pausing between the verses. Note it is not obligatory to do that, and if you do not do that, then your Salah is completely acceptable and pausing between the verses actually is not even something that needs to be done in the form of sada as for those who know
Noted with in Nigeria Sala must definitely utilize it if you do not know the rules of Tajweed then you are exempt or forgiven, but in this area, you do not have to, you know, perfect the rules of Nigeria Of course if you do so it is better for you and you do not have to pause after every verse. You can say Alhamdulillah paraliminal Rahmani Raheem americium Medina, the way you're gonna say it of course it's not good. You're going quickly, but the Salah is still accepted and valid and alasa widget knows best
