And seek help with patience and prayer ( بالصبر و الصالة (واستعينوا Day 1 Based on the book ( الصالة (تعظيم Magnification of the Prayer by Sheikh Abdulrazaq Al Bader. Introduction We knew before ( حول و ال قوة اال باهلل (ال was a treasure of paradise, but when Allah (جل جلاله) opened it more for us we got to see more of this treasure. And we thank Allah (جل جلاله) that He prolonged our lives to get to know this treasure. Alhamdulilah. We all have needs though all of us are different. When you say ( حول و ال قوة اال باهلل (ال you re going to the One Who rose over the Throne. Our problem is we re relying on ourselves and this is the worst. Imagine someone is drowning and only his hand is out, can he rely on himself? No. That s why it s the worst to rely on yourself. The shayateen want to make us think to be confident in ourselves, but ask Allah حول و ال قوة اال باهلل (.(جل جلاله) (ال is true confidence. ( حول و ال قوة اال باهلل (ال is a treasure to get all you want and to protect yourself from all evil. It s in our hands to make our test end or prolonged we ال حول و ال ( up? wants to take us up levels, and what makes us go (جل جلاله) don t want to get stuck. Allah power. is movement, we can t move one step up except by Allah s help and (حول).(قوة اال باهلل is a (ال حول و ال قوة اال باهلل ( everyone. is a master key for everything and for (ال حول و ال قوة اال باهلل ( treasure of paradise and one of the doors of paradise. It s a treasure and door, how? When you get this master key, then you can get all the other doors of paradise. How can you (ال حول و ال قوة اال باهلل ( ال حول و ال قوة اال ( without enter the others doors of paradise such as the door of prayer, fasting, etc Allah. Subhan?(باهلل When you say ( حول و ال قوة اال باهلل (ال you want help from Allah.(جل جلاله) Today we will look at means to (واستعينوا بالصبر و الصالة ( prayer tells us: And seek help with patience and (جل جلاله) help us in life, and Allah patience and prayer. So as if it s a triangle ( حول و ال قوة اال باهلل,(ال patience and prayer. You will notice ( بالصبر و الصالة (واستعينوا is mentioned twice in Surah Al Baqarah and both patience and prayer are mentioned together each time, we will later see the reason for this in sha a Allah. In Surah Yusuf :18 ( ب ل س و ل ت ل ك م أ نف س ك م أ مر ا ف ص بر ج م ي ل و ٱهلل ٱل م ست ع ا ن ع ل ى م ا ت ص ف و ن (ق ال (He said: Nay, but your ownselves have made up a tale. So (for me) patience is most fitting. And it is Allâh (Alone) Whose help can be sought against that (lie) which you describe. ) you will see Yaqoub (as) mentions a beautiful patience. When a person is in a difficult situation, he can t say much, but he just said beautiful patience and Allah (جل جلاله) knows what he means. Allah (جل جلاله) is (المستعان) He is the One I seek help with. Meaning of (الصبر) patience Patience (الصبر) means ( النفس (حبس controlling the self. The human is hasty and wants everything quickly. No one will leave this life having done everything he wanted, but it s important to do what Allah (جل جلاله) wants. In this life we need patience. For example, we want to get full marks, we want to raise our kids, we want to learn some skills all require patience. Your patience makes the solution come faster. The Prophet (ﷺ) said Allah (جل جلاله) immediately responds to our dua but what delays it? ع ن أ ب ي ه ر ير ة أ ن ر س و ل للا صلى للا عليه وسلم قا ل ي ست ج اب أل ح د ك م م ا ل م ي عج ل ( Hadith: When we are impatient. Page 1 said: The (ﷺ) (Abu Huraira reported that Allah's Messenger (ف ي ق ول ق د د ع و ت ف ال أ و ف ل م ي ست ج ب ل ي supplication of every one of you is granted if he does not grow impatient and says: I supplicated but it was not granted.) - Sahih Muslim 2735 When a two year old runs around, and there is something dangerous around them, you pull them إ ن م ا ي و ف ى ٱلص ب ر و ن ( 10: back, and similarly we need to pull back our nafs with patience. Surah Az Zumar reckoning) (Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without ) أ جر ه م ب غ ي ر ح س ا ب imagine you re waiting in the doctor s office for your appointment, do they give you money for waiting? Of course not, but if you re patient for Allah (جل جلاله) then He will reward you an open-check, it s countless, subhan Allah. Imagine 5 minutes you re patient for Allah,(جل جلاله) there s a reward, imagine 1 day, 1 year, 2 years, many years, subhan Allah. The patient ones will come on the Day of Judgment and they will see mountains of good deeds and they will wonder, where did I get this? I didn t do this many good deeds? And it will be said to them, it s because of your patience. And now unfortunately we re wasting on patience on trivial matters the didn t go through, etc. When we became impatient we become restless and can react badly. Patience can be bitter and burning, but it s still light. In Arabic, the word (صب ار) means cactus. They are living in the dessert and they re patient. That s why Yaqoub (as) asked for beautiful patience sabran jameel, as if been in a waiting room with all facilities, you can go to the spa, etc, unlike someone being in jail. و ج ع لن ا ( 20: We are tested with people, but what are we supposed to do? Be patient. Surah Al Furqan (And We have made some of you as a trial for others: will you have ) ب عض ڪ م ل ب عض ف تن ة أ ت صب ر و ن patience?) we may be surrounded with people, but we re alone, it s only between us and Allah إن النصر مع ( victory We re a test for the people and they re a test for us. Patience is the key for.(جل جلاله) verily victory is with patience. Take the opposite, verily failure is with impatience. So seek (الصبر help with patience. When you re patient then you ll be given victory. Meaning of (الصالة) prayer Prayer (الصالة) means connection to Allah.(جل جلاله) Prayer is a form of connection to Allah (جل جلاله) based on your actions. When you bow, prostrate, rise, stand, then this is all connection. This connection will help you to get what you want in life. When the Prophet (ﷺ) would have a problem in life, he would immediately go to the prayer. is the head and then there s patience and prayer. Patience gives you victory and (ال حول و ال قوة اال باهلل ( prayer is the first deed you ll be asked about on the Day of Judgment and when the prayer is good then all deeds will be good.?(الصالة) and (الصبر) What is the connection between Patience is sunlight and prayer is moonlight: Both are light, but they re different types of light. We all need light in order to achieve anything. Patience is an intense and big light. Patience is like the sunlight. In a longer hadith: The Prophet 223. (prayer is light..and patience is brightness) - Sahih Muslim ) و الص بر ض ي اء و الص ال ة ن ور ( said: (ﷺ) Page 2 (جل جلاله) For example, when you want to do something outdoor, you want sunlight. With patience, Allah will unveil many things around you. When you re impatient, you can t see properly, everything is upside down. When you re patient, you re calm and still and can see properly. No one can go to paradise without patience. So patience is a pre-requisite. You can t move on to other steps without patience. ال ( need we need patience for prayer. When you want patience, you,(الصالة نور ( noor And prayer is (جل جلاله) and you need patience for prayer. So you need them all. Alhamdulilah Allah,(حول و ال قوة اال باهلل gave us the salat. Salat puts off the heat of patience, subhan Allah. That s why you have th day and night. When you see the sun, you ll remember patience and when you see the moon, you ll ) و ه و ٱل ذ ى ج ع ل ٱل ي ل و ٱلن ه ا ر خ لف ة ل م ن أ ر ا د أ ن ي ذ ڪ ر أ و أ ر ا د ش ڪ ور ا ( :62 remember the prayer. Surah Furqan (And He it is Who has put the night and the day in succession, for such who desires to remember or desires to show his gratitude.) alhamdulilah for the sun and moon to make us reflect and remember. Patience is heat and prayer is coolness: (ﷺ) Patience is heat and prayer is coolness, that s why you need them together. The Prophet ر س ول للا صلى للا عليه وسلم ي ق و ل ي ا ب ال ل أ ق م ( prayer would tell Bilal (ra), let us cool and relax with the as saying: O Bilal, call iqamah for prayer: give (ﷺ) (I heard the Messenger of Allah ) الص ال ة أ ر حن ا ب ه ا us comfort by it.) - Sunan Abi Dawud 4985, Authenticated by Al Albani as Sahih referring to calling و ج ع ل ق ر ة ( Hadith: said the coolness of my eyes is in the prayer. (ﷺ) the prayer. And the Prophet (and my comfort has been provided in prayer) - Sunan an-nasa'i 3939 (ع ين ي ف ي الص ال ة It s a blessing from Allah (جل جلاله) to have taken the Prophet (ﷺ) on the night journey to prescribe the prayers upon us and teach us on the earth to overcome our patience. Patience is bitter and prayer is delightful Patience is bitter and prayer removes the aftertaste of patience. So with patience and prayer you will get what you want in life and to avert all evil. And alhamdulilah (جل جلاله) all the tools of the solution to our problems are free of charge. It can t be in this life that Allah placed us to have solutions with money, subhan Allah. And imagine people are going to useless solutions and wasting money which only cause more problems. Allah (جل جلاله) created us and for sure our solutions are free. ( حول و ال قوة اال باهلل,(ال patience and prayer are all free. (تعظيم الصالة ( prayer Magnification of the Normal prayer without magnification will not give you help. The real help is when you magnify the prayer. Sometimes we pray but there are no feelings, but when you magnify it then you feel its greatness. س م عت ر س و ل للا صلى للا عليه وسلم ي ق و ل م ا م ن امر ئ م سل م ت حض ر ه ص ال ة م كت وب ة ف ي حس ن و ض وء ه ا و خ ش وع ه ا ( Hadith: (ﷺ) I) heard Allah's Messenger ) و ر ك وع ه ا إ ال ك ان ت ك ف ار ة ل م ا ق بل ه ا م ن الذ ن و ب م ا ل م ي ؤ ت ك ب ير ة و ذ ل ك الد ه ر ك ل ه say: When the time for a prescribed prayer comes, if any Muslim performs ablution well and offers his prayer with humility and bowing, it will be an expiation for his past sins, so long as he has not Page 3 committed a major sin; and this applies for all times.) - Sahih Muslim 228 when you do ihsan in your wudhu and ihsan in your khushu, what does that mean? Whatever you re saying in your prayer then you re present. Notice ruku is mentioned and not sujood in the hadith because people want to do ruku quickly. To do things with ihsan is as if you see Allah (جل جلاله) and if you can t see Him then He sees you. Don t think when you re at home then you don t have any sins. We all have sins. So what is the condition to have our sins expiated between the obligatory prayers? Ihsan. There s sweetness to the prayer and imagine you re connecting to Allah (جل جلاله) Who is so great. Every part of body is being used for the prayer unlike animals which cannot bow or prostrate, and we re not using our body to pray, subhan Allah. (الصالة على جميع األنبياء ( prophets Prayer was performed by all the Yunus (as) Surah As Saffat : و إ ن ي ون س ل م ن ٱل م رس ل ي ن )٩٣١( إ ذ أ ب ق إ ل ى ٱل ف ل ك ٱل م شح و ن )٩٤١( ف س اه م ف ك ا ن م ن ٱل م دح ض ي ن )٩٤٩( ف ٱل ت ق م ه ٱلح و ت و ه و م ل ي م )٩٤١( ف ل وال ا أ ن ه ۥ ك ا ن م ن ٱل م س ب ح ي ن )٩٤٣( ل ل ب ث ف ى ب طن ه ۦ إ ل ى ي و م ي بع ث و ن )٩٤٤( And, verily, Yûnus (Jonah) was one of the Messengers (139) When he ran to the laden ship, (140) Then he (agreed to) cast lots, and he was among the losers, (141) Then a (big) fish swallowed as and he had done an act worthy of blame. (142) Had he not been of them who glorify Allâh, (143) He would have indeed remained inside its belly (the fish) till the Day of Resurrection. (144).(جل جلاله) The people of Yunus (as) didn t accept the message so he left without permission from Allah The whale swallowed him while feeling disgraced and humiliated inside. Had he not been from من ( said those who do tasbeeh then he would have remained until the Last Day. Ibn Abbas (ra) ال ( was subhan Allah. Yunus s prayer,(جل جلاله) means from those who pray and connect to Allah (المسبحين (There is no one worthy of worship except You, verily I have been (اله اال أنت سبحانك اني كنت من الظالمين from the wrongdoers). Allah (جل جلاله) removed him from the belly of the whale and onto land, and not even the sea, subhan Allah. Ibrahim (as) ر ب ن اا إ ن اى أ سك ن ت م ن ذ ر ي ت ى ب و اد غ ي ر ذ ى ز رع ع ن د ب يت ك ٱل م ح ر م ر ب ن ا ل ي ق يم وا ٱلص ل و ة ف ٱجع ل أ ف د ة م ن ٱلن ا س ( :37 Surah Ibrahim ( O our Lord! I have made some of my offspring to dwell in an ) ت ہو اى إ ل يہ م و ٱرز قه م م ن ٱلث م ر ٲ ت ل ع ل ه م ي ش ك ر و ن uncultivable valley by Your Sacred House (the Ka'bah at Makkah); in order, O our Lord, that they may perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), so fill some hearts among men with love towards them, and (O Allâh) provide them with fruits so that they may give thanks) Ibrahim (as) made dua for his offspring to be among those who pray. This shows prayer is so important and it s his priority before anything else. When their prayer is good, then everything else will be good, their studies will be good, being dutiful to their parents will be good. But we re focusing on other things because there s no magnification for the prayer. When you magnify the prayer then your children will magnify the prayer. For example, if they make a mistake on the exam, Page 4 then tell them no worries, you can make it up tomorrow, but if they miss the prayer, then this is great. A person can always catch up with the duniya. In the dua, Ibrahim (as) is talking about his condition, he said I left my offspring in a valley with no vegetation, and he asked Our Rabb to make them establish the prayer first. If it was us, we would ask Allah (جل جلاله) to protect them and provide them with food, subhan Allah. This shows his magnification for the prayer. If there s prayer in the children then there will be goodness in them. When they have a problem, then let them seek help in the prayer. Then Ibrahim (as) asked Allah (جل جلاله) to make the hearts of the people to blow towards them; to be inclined to them. Then he asked Allah (جل جلاله) to grant them fruits and fruits are a luxury. He completes his dua in order they may be grateful. This shows they already have patience because you can t have gratitude without patience. Surah Ibrahim :40 ( ر ب ٱجع لن ى م ق ي م ٱلص ل و ة و م ن ذ ر ي ت ى ر ب ن ا و ت ق ب ل د ع اا ء ) O ) my Lord! Make me one who performs As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), and (also) from my offspring, our Lord! And accept my invocation.) Ibrahim (as) is a messenger and he s asking Allah (جل جلاله) to make him from those who establish the prayer. In the Quran, you will notice the description for prayer is establishing the prayer and not those who pray. And he s asking for offspring to be from those who establish the prayer. Ismael (as) Surah Maryam :55 ( و ك ان ي أم ر أ هل ه ۥ ب ٱلص ل و ة و ٱلز ك و ة و ك ا ن ع ن د ر ب ه ۦ م رض ي ا ) (And he used to enjoin on his family and his people As-Salât (the prayers) and the Zakât, and his Lord was pleased with him) Ismael (as) is the son of Ibrahim (as) whom he was making dua a for, subhan Allah. Ismael (as) would command his family to the prayer and this shows he magnifies the prayer. The children have to be commanded to the prayer by the parents from the age of seven. And before that time they should see the parents praying. Just as we command the children to do their homework and to wear their uniforms, we shouldn t say I can t command them to pray. A parent can command them for the duniya, but not for the prayer? Subhan Allah. Is haaq (as) Surah Al Anbiya 72-73: ين اا إ ل يه م ف ع ل ٱل خ ير ٲ ت و إ ق ا م ٱلص ل و ة و إ يت اا ء و و ه بن ا ل ه ۥ إ سح ق و ي عق و ب ن اف ل ة و ك ال ج ع لن ا ص ل ح ي ن )٢١( و ج ع لن ه م أ ٮ م ة ي ہد و ن ب أ مر ن ا و أ وح ٱلز ڪ وة و ك ان وا ل ن ا ع ب د ي ن )٢٣( And We bestowed upon him Ishâq (Isaac), and (a grandson) Ya'qûb (Jacob). Each one We made righteous. (72) And We made them leaders, guiding (mankind) by Our Command, and We revealed them the doing of good deeds, performing Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), and the giving of Zakât and of Us (Alone) they were the worshippers. (73) Is haaq is also the son of Ibrahim (as) and Allah (جل جلاله) inspired Is haaq (as) and Yaqoub (as) to do the good deeds, establish the prayer and give zakat. Inspired them means they love to do it. And all of this is a result of Ibrahim s invocation. Page 5 Musa (as) Surah Ta Ha :14 ( اى أ ن ا ٱهلل ال ا إ ل ه إ ال ا أ ن ا ف ٱعب دن ى و أ ق م ٱلص ل و ة ل ذ ڪر اى (إ ن ن ( Verily! I am Allâh! Lâ ilâha illa Ana (none has the right to be worshipped but I), so worship Me, and perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât) for My Remembrance) Allah (جل جلاله) spoke to Musa (as) with no mediator and He commanded him to establish the prayer in order to remember Him. The prayer is for the remembrance of Allah.(جل جلاله) Musa (as) even asked Allah (جل جلاله) to pray in his grave, subhan Allah, and when the Prophet (ﷺ) went on the Night Journey, he saw Musa (as) praying in his grave and Allah (جل جلاله) knows best. Surah Yunus 87: ( ) و أ وح ين اا إ ل ى م وس ى و أ خ ي ه أ ن ت ب و ء ا ل ق وم ك م ا ب م ص ر ب ي وتا و ٱجع ل وا ب ي وت ڪ م ق بل ة و أ ق يم وا ٱلص ل و ة و ب ش ر ٱلم ؤم ن ي ن (And We revealed to Mûsa (Moses) and his brother (saying): Provide dwellings for your people in Egypt, and make your dwellings as places for your worship, and perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), and give glad tidings to the believers. ) While Banu Israel was in difficult times being oppressed by Firaoun and their people, they were not commanded to protest and demonstrate, but to stay at home and pray. Islam is against protests and demonstrations. Prayer is the aid and help for all of us. Dawud (as) Surah Sad :24 ( و ظ ن د ا و ۥ د أ ن م ا ف ت ن ه ف ٱست غف ر ر ب ه ۥ و خ ر ر اك ع ا و أ ن ا ب ) (And Dâwûd (David) guessed that We have tried him and he sought Forgiveness of his Lord, and he fell down prostrate and turned (to Allâh) in repentance) When Dawud (as) made a mistake in his ruling without verifying, he fled to Allah (جل جلاله) and went down to bowing, meaning he went to the prayer. And ruku is
