The next question from Hassan from Oman, if someone does not do anything forbidden, but the only thing is that he does not pray.

00:00:14--> 00:00:17

Is it possible for him to enter paradise?

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

The question posed by brother Hassan from Oman, that if a person doesn't do anything forbidden, but the only thing he does he does not pray. So can you go to China?

00:00:28--> 00:00:44

It is like somebody asking me that I want to have a very good, healthy body. I do exercise. I go to the gym. Ideally go to walk, I do cycling. Only thing I don't do is I do not eat anything the full day.

00:00:46--> 00:00:52

Do you think the person will be healthy, they'll be going to the gym, cycling, going for the morning walk, jogging.

00:00:54--> 00:00:57

Very good, fresh air, but does not eat anything full day.

00:00:58--> 00:01:28

Like it is known to us. For a healthy body. You should have three meals a day. Similarly, for a spiritual soul, it's compulsory. That minimum you should pray five times a day praying five times a day for the psalm regarding the question that can I go to Jana if I don't do anything haram and maybe do all the other good deeds, but do not offer prayer. Our Beloved Prophet masala Salim said it's mentioned

00:01:30--> 00:01:42

in say Muslim are number one, number two for six. That between the man and shirk and kufr stands the offering of Salah

00:01:43--> 00:01:51

Miss salah, praying salah is the differentiation between a man and shirk and kufr. That photo Prophet said

00:01:52--> 00:02:09

that the reason the scholars many scholars say that of a person who does not pray at all it is he becomes a Kaffir some scholars are more lenient to say that if a person doesn't pray, but believe praying is a first, then it cannot be called the cafe, the difference of opinion

00:02:10--> 00:03:04

amongst the deeds, that is the most important a beloved Porsche masala sunset, as mentioned in an essay, one number five Hadith number 3996 that the Prophet said that the first deed that Allah will ask on their judgment is regarding offering of Salah. So the most important deed amongst all the Salah as we discussed in the last session, the biggest sin in the sin of Schilke the thing which are haram, it should then would be murdered like magic etc. Similarly, amongst the deeds that is the most important. It is Salah, it is prayer. And if you don't do that, that is like your $100 in deeds. How I said in Finn ship is the worst. Similarly indeed. Number one is Salah.

00:03:05--> 00:03:08

If you don't offer salah, can you go to Jenna.

00:03:10--> 00:03:56

Allah says in the Quran in surah ISATAP number fours number 48 And it's really sad chapter number four was 916. If Allah pleases, he may forgive anything but the sin of Schilke he will never forgive. Yes, if after committing Schilke if you repent, ask for forgiveness and stop it inshallah Allah Allah forgive that also. But if you die at the Mushnik without asking for forgiveness without leaving [???], you are detained for hellfire. There's no forgiveness. The most important deed to be done is Salah. If you don't have a Salah the chances of you going to Jannah is bare minimal, very negligible, if Allah wishes to forgive you, because they have not done allow me forgive you.

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

Possibility their probability is not the

00:04:01--> 00:04:06

possibility, yes, but very low point 000 1%

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

Because that's the most important deed

00:04:10--> 00:04:23

if you do something else, and if Allah is pleased with you, and Allah wants to forgive you, there is too much of ifs and buts the person cannot take the risk. We are undergoing the final examination. This is the test for the year after

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

you cannot take that chance. And if you analyze, if I asked you a simple question, that is the human being who everyone is saying was so grateful. He's such a good human being. And he is looking after other people. He is going and helping the poor, and he's loving everyone else. And when you closely go and analyze, you realize that he had a mother and father, who were very loving, who took care of him who looked after him and educated him, gave him good clothes.

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

And then he became rich. But later on, he doesn't take care of his parents at all. He's not been going and meeting them for years together, he not thanking them. So how will you call him a good human being just because you're helping the poor, but the main people mean to human beings, his parents, mother and father, who took care of him, gave him the education and bottom up because of that, why today he's got a good job, and he neglects them, doesn't mean them, doesn't care for them, doesn't go and even say, how are you? For years together? How can you call him a good human beings you know, compared to parents and Allah, Allah subhanaw taala is our Creator. Inshallah, we are

00:05:43--> 00:06:09

thanking Allah subhanaw taala and besides saying Allah Spano Tala, we are getting guidance from Him, how should we lead our life, I've given the talk on Salah, the programming tools righteousness, that not only do we pray, and thank Allah, we also get guidance from Him. And if you are following the right way, we are being guided to good deeds. So the chances if you offer Salah correctly, will be on the straight path is very high.

00:06:10--> 00:06:14

And if you're in trouble, the best solution is Salah.

00:06:16--> 00:06:31

If you're in trouble and if you have a problem, you cannot see that you have tried everything to solve the problem until you pray in the last 1/3 of the night and ask for the problem before integer

00:06:33--> 00:06:53

besides the five compulsory Salah there are many other salah, Salah if the programming to righteousness, it is your main soul. The best deed is Salah. And while I was doing my little research on the life of the prophet, I realized

00:06:54--> 00:07:36

that the Prophet on average to the CDR isn't mentioned exactly how many hours he slept in a day. On average, according to my study, he might have slept between three to four hours a day. Because he felt that he had to pray for 1/3 of the night you to pray for a Baccarat. And for Imran that's more than two Jews, nearly two Jews both put together for Jews. So but naturally it takes us. So based on this depending upon whether it's summer or winter, the nights keep on getting short and long. The maximum that the prophet could have slept was maybe three to four us no more than that. And if we analyze the time you have to spend praying everyday if you just calculate logically, it would be

00:07:36--> 00:07:46

more than five, six hours. So according to me, according to my research, the Prophet prayed more number of hours than the number of hours he slept.

00:07:47--> 00:07:58

Anyway, let me be very clear, there is no Hadith or no Quranic verse telling that you should spend more time in praying than sleeping. Not at all. But this was the practice of the Prophet.

00:07:59--> 00:08:36

I'm just telling you something about the Prophet practice, not that every human being should do it is difficult. But as a normal human being requires about seven hours of sleep minimum, seven to eight hours, minimum is six hours. So it difficult that there isn't if you heard my answer when I gave last month in the month of Ramadan, about my daily routine, I said when I was in Bombay, as to sleep for about three hours and have two prayers approximately for three hours. When I came to Malaysia I started praying for about 415 minutes and mostly been killed two, three and a half hours before what I said in Ramadan. But after I'm done for the last one month Alhamdulillah I've

00:08:36--> 00:09:18

increased my time for prayers. I started praying tagit for minimum one and a half hour every day around the little after I'm done have just in the Florida citation takes about one and a half hour previously method used to vary from 20 minutes 30 minutes on time on our average was about 30 minutes now that increased to one and a half more than mana. So now my average time I spent 20 the time from the oven. When I do walk to the mosque, come back total all the five salah and the Salah the lower and do the approximately five or 15 minutes if I remove the time of voodoo and the time of going in coming in the time of dua, yet it will be more than four hours Alhamdulillah and my time

00:09:18--> 00:09:59

asleep is about three and a half hours. So when I'm around the law trying that let my hours of Salah be more than hours of my sleep. Anyway, this is not compulsory at all. For the Muslims. It is just my research and I'm trying to follow what I can and Allah has blessed me that I can do my work throughout the day even with sleeping less. It's an AMA from Allah subhanaw taala So prayer is the most important deed during the answer that if you don't pray and do all the other good deeds and stay away from the bad deeds, the chances of you going to Jana is very, very bad minimal was to forgive you and put you in Jannah that Allah prerogative but the chances are very low.

00:10:00--> 00:10:31

So medic mystery brother that feed to it that you pay attention on your Salah. Your full life should revolve around salah. If a person is a good practicing Muslim, all his activities in the day it revolves around salah. The time we need is based on salah is the before Salah after salah the time he sleeps based on salah. The appointment you give to anyone is based on Salah. So those people are practicing Muslim and see to it that they offer Salah five times a day in Jamaat in the mosque. The whole daily routine revolves around Salah

00:10:32--> 00:10:48

it is the most important factor. It builds a discipline in you. And it is the most important deed I request to that you should always pray Alhamdulillah five times a day in the mosque in Jamaat, that the midst of dances the question
