His Eminence, the imam and preacher of the Grand Mosque, Sheikh Dr. Yasser bin Rashid Al-Dosari, recommended that Muslims fear God and worship Him, and draw near to Him by obeying Him in what pleases Him and avoiding His anger and prohibitions.
And his eminence said: God created the sons of Adam and made them testify of themselves, so they acknowledged His Lordship, which necessitates His divinity, as He, exalted be He, said in His power: (And when your Lord took from the sons of Adam, from their backs their offspring and Make them testify against themselves, have I not witnessed your Lord? They said, “Yes, we have witnessed.” [سورة الأعراف، من الآية: 172]When God created their bodies and breathed their souls into them, they remained attached to their Lord, forced to lack their Creator, just as He said, “Every newborn is born on the fitrah,” adding that the greatest of practical acts of worship that nourishes these spiritual demands and fulfills their needs is the fitrah. Yah: It is the worship of prayer to the Lord of the wilderness. Therefore, it was the pillar of religion, the bond of the servant to the Lord of the worlds, and the closeness of all the prophets and messengers. Prayer is the consolation of the hidden, the solitude of the pious, the reassurance of the believers, the comfort of the eyes of the lovers, the pleasure of the souls of the monotheists, the garden of the worshipers, and the pleasure of the worshipers. The ruler of the humble, the test of the conditions of the truthful, and the balance of the conditions of the workers, and it is a mercy God is the gift given to His faithful servants, the Lord of the worlds said: (And seek help with patience and prayer, and indeed it is great except for the humble (Surat Al-Baqara).
And he added: Prayer has a great status in Islam, and a lofty position: God imposed it without intermediaries on the night of the Isra’ and Mi’raj, from above the seven heavens. By it, his nation is the Seal of the Prophets, and the first thing that the servant will be held accountable for in terms of the rights of the Lord of the Worlds, and one of the greatest reasons for accompanying the Prophet in Paradise on the Day of Judgment. Benefit yourself with much prostration.”
His Eminence continued by saying: Then know – may God have mercy on you: – that God has in each of the servant’s limbs a servitude that belongs to it, and obedience is required of it, it was created and prepared for it, and prayer was established for the use of all the limbs, in the servitude of its Creator, for every servitude in prayer is a secret and an effect And slavery does not get from Other than it, whoever uses those raptors for what they were created for, then he is the happy one whose trade is profitable, his sin is erased, and his rank is raised. Because he knew the path of salvation, so he stood on the foot of etiquette in communion, and he obtained from his Lord what he hoped for, for he has the greatest destiny and prestige, adding that God Almighty, in His wisdom, made entering upon Him in prayer dependent on purity, and He prescribed for the one who purifies himself as the Prophet told him to say after he finished ablution “I testify that there is no god but God alone, with no partner, and I testify that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger, O God, make me one of those who repent, and make me one of those who purify Yin.” It was included by al-Tirmidhi, and he commanded him to face the qiblah with his face, to turn to God Almighty in his entirety, and to stand in front of him in the position of a poor humble servant. Then he says Allahu Akbar with reverence and glorification, then he opens his prayer by saying: (God is Greatest), Allahu Akbar: a declaration of monotheism, Allahu Akbar: disavowal of polytheism, Allah is greater than the pleasures and pleasures of the world, Allah is greater than its worries and distractions, so the worshiper abandons the obstacles and cuts off all ties, then After the takbeer, he begins with the supplication of opening, then he glorifies God, praises Him, glorifies Him, and singles Him out with Tawheed, He alone has no partner, and he says: (Glory be to You, O God, and with Your praise and blessed be Your name, the Most High, Your grandfather, and there is no god but You), then he seeks refuge with God, and turns to Him to divert Satan away from him, then he bismillah After that, he stands at each verse of Al-Fatihah, sensing the answer of his Lord to him, as if he is hearing him saying: (My servant praised Me), (My servant glorified Me), (This is between Me and My servant), then he asks his Lord the best question, which is: (Guide us to the straight path (Surah Al-Fatihah). ; to guide him to the path that leads to him and to his paradise, and to keep him away from the path of misguidance and the causes of his anger, and then he takes after that to recite what is easy of the Qur’an; And he reflects on the words of the Most Gracious, so those verses descend upon the hearts like rain on the earth that has no life without Him, and He takes the place of souls from the bodies, then he returns to the takbeer of his Lord, the Mighty and Sublime, and the worshiper then moves to a station of submission before God, a place where he bows. The servant crucifixes it, and bows his head in reverence to God, praising Him by mentioning His great name, and says: (Glory be to my Lord the Great), clearing God of everything that contradicts His pride, majesty, and greatness, then he rises from his bowing, praising his Lord, praising Him with the most perfect advocacy. This is the best of it, and he says: (God heard To him who praises Him), (Our Lord, to You be praise, many good and blessed praises for it), then he says takbeer and moves after the praise to the greatest place of prayer, and its most honorable place, so he falls down prostrating to God on the most honorable thing in it, which is the face; Humiliation and humiliation in the hands of his Lord, and every member of the body has taken his share of this submission and servitude, so he glorifies his Lord, the Most High, in his prostration, and he says: (Glory be to my Lord, the Most High), and since prostration is the goal of the servant’s humiliation and submission, he is the closest thing that can be to his Lord. The Messenger, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said Peace be upon him: “The closest a servant is to his Lord while he is prostrating, so supplicate a great deal.” Narrated by Muslim. have mercy on me, heal me, guide me, and provide for me), and these The goodness of this world and the hereafter, then it was prescribed for him to repeat this rak’ah over and over again, to replace what came before it with what comes after it, and to satisfy the heart of this beneficial food, and to take its share and ample portion of medicine, for the status of prayer from the heart is the status of food and medicine.--
And he indicated that at the end of his prayer it was prescribed for him to sit for the tashahhud, so he would praise God with the best greetings, then greet his Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, with the most complete greetings, and greet himself and all the righteous servants of God, then bear witness to the truth, saying: (I bear witness that there is no god but God, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger), then he sends blessings upon the one who taught the nation this goodness and guided them to it, so he sends blessings on Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, and upon Abraham and the family of Abraham, upon them the best of blessings and complete submission, and after that it is desirable for him to seek refuge from the torment of Hell, from the torment of the grave, and from the trial of life and death, and from the trial of the Antichrist, and that he seeks forgiveness from his Lord, acknowledging his sin and weakness, then asking God for his needs, and supplicating as he wills, and if he decides that, he is permitted to leave the prayer with the salutation, so he concludes it with: (Peace be upon you and the mercy of God), and it was from the completeness of grace that he departed from between His Lord’s hands are in peace that accompanies him and lasts for him and stays with him, and he commanded to establish prayer five times a day to purify him from the heedlessness of his heart and the dirt of his sins. That is a reminder for those who remember) And the Messenger, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said Peace be upon him: “Do you think that if there is a river at the door of one of you and he bathes in it five times every day, will there be any dirt left on him? They said: Nothing of his dirt will remain. He said: This is like the five daily prayers, through which God erases sins. strength, tranquility, tranquility, and reverence, so they bear fruit in the soul, and bear fruit in The servant has its effects, and thus the servant attains prosperity, which God promised to the people of faith and righteousness, as God said: (The believers have succeeded who are humble in their prayers) and these are lofty stations of faith, and transcendence to the mortal realms of the world, to which only the boats of humility can rise. and perseverance on it .
His Eminence added, saying: Know that what is meant by prayer is the glorification of the deity, for it is glorification of God from its beginning to its end, and glorification of Him can only be with the presence of the heart in obedience. With that whispers and bad thoughts, and this is the soul and core of prayer, if the heart has the spirit of intimacy, those costs will be removed from it. And hardships, so prayer became a comfort to his eye, strength, pleasure and happiness, and that is why the Prophet said: “The comfort of my eye was made in prayer.” Just as the comfort of the eye: that you perform it while your heart is happy and reassured by it, and your eyes are happy, you rejoice if you are in the act of it, and you wait for it if longing for her time, And since prayer is a relief for the heart from fatigue and weariness, the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: “O Bilal, give us rest through prayer.” Ahmad included it in his Musnad, until he returns to what is the comfort of his eye and the bliss of his soul. the Prophet
With his heart and mind, as the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: “Pray as you have seen me pray,” adding that one of the meanings of solemn prayer and its great goals is to establish congregational prayer, and in this is the consolidation of the concept of the unification of the word and the coalition of the ranks of Muslims so that they are like one body, if one member complains about it, the rest of them respond to him. The body is fed by fever and vigil, and the nation continues to breathe in this spirit, and there are explanations about the stances of the noble Kingdom with Muslims regarding that, and it is good to refer to it in this context is the praise for the generous human historical stance that our wise government in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia takes under the leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and his trustworthy Crown Prince With the Sudanese people, which was witnessed by everyone near and far, including what the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and his Crown Prince instructed the King Salman Relief Center to provide various humanitarian aid, and to organize a popular campaign through the platform: “Contribute” for the benefit of the brotherly Sudanese people, so take the initiative and hasten, O Muslims, to contribute and participate In this blessed campaign, may God reward the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, his Crown Prince, and you with the best, most rewarding and rewarding reward for all that you offer and expend in support of your brothers.
