Rubbish roughly soldering wire Cirelli Emery wash Lola rocket that's Amelie Cerny? Yes, cuckoo Kohli a Madonna. All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa taala. We praise Him. We seek His help, and we ask for his forgiveness. We praise and thank Allah subhanahu wa taala for once again allowing us all to be gathered here today in this masjid, to listen to the chutzpah to inshallah perform the salah to do more together and to keep us keeping us alive in this blessed month of Ramadan.

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

For that I ask Allah subhanahu wata Allah to bless each and every one of us and I asked Allah subhanahu wa taala to gather us like we are gathered he but in Jannah tool for those I mean

00:05:13--> 00:05:23

my brothers and sisters, Allah subhanahu wa taala do gives us so many opportunities

00:05:24--> 00:05:26

to do well in this life.

00:05:27--> 00:05:45

Allah subhanahu wa taala gives us certain EBO dirt, that if we do it, the hundreds are so great. For instance, when Allah Allah gave the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the gift of Salah

00:05:46--> 00:06:05

and from the 50 salah, it went all the way down to five, Allah subhanho wa Taala told the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that for your ummah, if they pray the five daily prayers, it will be equivalent to 50 prayers.

00:06:06--> 00:06:07

Also,

00:06:08--> 00:06:58

Allah subhanahu wa taala gives us more opportunities. He tells us when you pray in the masjid, you get the reward, as if you are praying more than 25 to 27 times more than praying at home. He gives us more opportunities. If you praise Allah to Allah insha in the masjid behind the Imam, then it is as if you are in a birder half the night and if you pray in the masjid for Virgil, it is as if you have prayed the entire night. The opportunities are great my brothers and my sisters, also at the same time, the opportunity that Allah gives us during the tahajjud pray, where it is mentioned by His Majesty Allah to Allah descends to the first heavens. And then he asks who is there who asked

00:06:58--> 00:07:50

for me I am here to give, the opportunities are so great. Likewise my brothers and my sisters, Allah to Allah gives us the opportunity in the month of Ramadan, in the month of Ramadan to gain the highest of hasard to get our sins completely wiped off, wiped off. These are the opportunities, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said Kulu Hamelin YBNL item hola Illa. Song for call Atala a formally we're an agency. It is mentioned in the Hadith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that for every day that a person does is for them, your Salah is for you, your charity is for you. The DUA that you make is for you, except for fasting for Allah to Allah says, fasting is

00:07:50--> 00:08:44

for me, and I will give as much as I wish there is no limits. And we know from another Hadith, that every deed you do, Allah Tala multiplies that by a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 700. Except for fasting. Fasting is for Allah subhanho wa taala, you get much more than that. The opportunities are vast, and we need to take this opportunity in the month of Ramadan. We are approaching the last 10 Nights, we have passed the halfway point. We are almost headed to the last 10 days or 10 nights of Ramadan. I want all of us to visualize a person who is running in a racetrack. Let's say he is running a 300 meter race. Nobody starts off that race by sprinting from the beginning. Nobody does

00:08:44--> 00:09:35

that. Because when you sprint from the beginning, you get puffed out by the end, you will notice that any athlete who runs a race that is long, they jog in the beginning, then slowly slowly they get faster until the last 100 meter where you can see the finish line. That's when they sprint and that is exactly how Ramadan is we need to pace ourselves the first 10 days of Ramadan, we pace ourselves in such a manner that yes, we increase our EVA more than what we used to do before Ramadan. But we pace ourselves then the next 10 days which we are currently in increase that slightly but unfortunately the trend amongst the Muslims is they increase from the beginning

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

decrease in the middle then increase again in the last 10 nights of Ramadan but they may get burnt out pretty quickly. By the 25th 2729 might you start getting burnt out Subhanallah so slightly increase as you are going are heading towards that last point. You can see the finish line is coming up. That is when we sprint insha Allah

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

Huhtala today, the highlight or the focus that I wanted to share with you, is what is coming up just before that finish line. And that is Leila.

00:10:12--> 00:10:47

Leila Tsukada, as we know, and it's been translated as a Knight of decree, the Knights of power, the night of Baraka in blessings. And this night is so great. Again, another opportunity Allah is giving us on top of what Allah has already given us in this month of Ramadan. On top of that, he gives us Leila Toluca. So what is Laylatul Qadr? And what better explanation is there? Then what is mentioned in the Quran? Allah subhanahu wa taala, he said,

00:10:48--> 00:10:53

in an Zelina, who feel a little warmer, Adorama Laila,

00:10:55--> 00:11:43

Laila to Kadri hero, Minh Elfi SHA, Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us a description about Leila to Lakota. He said, Verily, indeed, without a doubt, we have revealed it the Quran on the Night of Qadr on the Night of Decree. And then he asks us a rhetorical question. You know, for those of us who read English, for those of us who are well educated and when you know the techniques of the English language, there is sometimes rhetorical questions that are asked, and the reason for those rhetorical questions is not for you to answer but for you to ponder about it. And the answer will come very similar to that is the Arabic language but much richer than any other language. Allah

00:11:43--> 00:12:34

Allah tells us who am I Docomo Lila to Lucado and what will make you understand what will make you know what Leila to coddle is? Allah to Allah wants us to ponder because what's coming after is very important, very vital. Allah is asking us that question. Then he says Laila to cordery Hi, You mean I'll fish that the Night of Decree is better than 1000 months? This is something that is mind blowing SubhanAllah. Now, why is it called Leila Toluca, there is many difference of opinions amongst the scholars. And a lot of these opinions are very closely related. Some of the aroma they say that in the night of power or the Night of Decree, the reason why it is called an order is

00:12:34--> 00:13:30

because that night, Allah subhanahu wa taala reveals the happenings for each and every one of us to selected angels. For instance, we all know that Allah Allah created the pen, the first creation, and he told a pen to write in the pen wrote, the pen wrote everything that will happen from that time until the Day of Judgment, everything that you and I will do has already been decreed and has been written. But on the specific night, it is mentioned that an example is given, that the person who will die that ye that information is given to the angel. And it is said that amongst you could be people who will die that night or that year, and they don't know about it. Our names could be

00:13:30--> 00:13:39

selected my brothers and my sisters, we don't know. We may not see the next Laila to Ricardo. So we need to make the most of it insha Allah Who to Allah,

00:13:40--> 00:14:34

then Allah subhanahu wa taala tells us Cairo min L. Fisher, the Laila to order is better than 1000 months. And is again a few opinions on this. Some of the scholars they say that in the Arabic language when you say that it is better than 1000 months, you know, like in English when we say, you know, it's a million is a million years ago. Oh, it's great a million times better than anything. It's a saying to show how great this night is. So not literally 1000 years, but how great much better than a lifetime. But other scholars they say no, it's a literal meaning 1000 months, which is more than 83 years. Many of us majority of us here will not live up to 83 years. Some of us may.

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

Some of us may live more than 83 years. And again what is the reason for Allah to Allah giving us this opportunity? In a hadith he was mentioned, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam happen to know or happen to see the years that people used to live before him? They'll Alma previously, he was shown that they used to live for hundreds of years.

00:15:00--> 00:15:53

Is and they had so many years of opportunity to gain has an ad from Allah Tala. So when he saw this he was saddened, saddened for the fact that he said that my Alma only lives 60 to 70 years. The opportunity is not that big compared to the people who live before. So Allah to Allah revealed this Surah or this verse, this verse, Laila to Kadri how you Roman official, that this Night of Decree is better than 1000 months. Therefore you worshipping Allah to Allah this night, that is better than a lifetime. And you do it on a yearly basis. How many lifetimes? Are you doing that Eva, look at the opportunity that Allah subhanahu wa taala is giving us also, it has been mentioned that Allah

00:15:53--> 00:16:33

subhanahu wa taala said in Tanzania who failed ala T Mobile rocketing in guna marine fee eufora kukula Amarin Hakeem Allah subhanahu wa taala said we have sent eight meaning the Quran down on a blessed night, verily, We are ever warning on that night it is made clear, every precise matter. So your culture is given for that ye to the angels who are responsible. Also at the same time, Allah subhanahu wa taala tells us 10 Us Zelo Mala ecotour ro fi hub is Mira be him in Kalia.

00:16:34--> 00:17:29

Again, an amazing, amazing opportunity. I want you all to understand this very hard to visualize, but try your best. It has been reported that on the Night of Decree, the top top angels, they gather in sutra tournament, very high lofty place just under the ashram of Allah. And amongst them is Gibreel alayhi salam, the leader of the angels, and they descend, they pass all of the heavens and they descend to the skies to the to the earth close to the Earth. And it has been said that Gibreel alayhi salam sends angels to every part of the world, every home that they can find someone worshipping Allah that night. Imagine the opportunity Gibreel Alayhis Salam, sending the angels

00:17:30--> 00:18:22

telling them to go to all of the houses that you can see the one who in which there is worship of Allah subhanho wa taala. And their job is when they see someone worshipping Allah and making dua, they say I mean to your DUA, the angel say I mean to your DUA, they are told to go to those homes and massages all the places where he is worship, and make dua for forgiveness for those people make dua for those people to get what they asked for. Look at the opportunities. They also as mentioned in a hadith, they come to us they greet you and they say salaam to you. It has also been reported they shake your hand during that Night of Decree, look at the opportunities Subhanallah This is the

00:18:22--> 00:19:05

job of the angels. They do not enter upon homes where there are idols, they do not enter upon filthy places. So remove anything that pictures, frames, idols, whatever you may have in your homes, that you shouldn't have moved them away, you should not have them at all, especially on that night. But remove them away from your homes, put them away in cabinets or cupboards, because you don't need them to be displayed. We want the angels to come to our homes, and give us those Black Tidings asking Allah to Allah for forgiveness for us. This is what happens on that night. Then afterwards, the angels, they gather together in some metal duniya in this heavens that we are in. And as the sun

00:19:05--> 00:19:55

is coming up in the early part of the morning, they hover on top of the earth, and they wait until the sun rises, and they make their way up. And as they are going up back to Sedona Tomonaga they are met with other angels along the way. And those angels asks, How was Leila to Ricardo? And they say that we saw we notice, so and so the son of so and so. So and so the daughter of so and so, worshipping Allah to Allah that night, imagine they as they are telling the angels, they are telling them your name, mentioning your name, because you are in the worship of Allah subhanahu wa taala look at the opportunities and they do that for every level they going up until they go back to

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

Sierra Tomonaga. And over there, even though Allah knows all

00:20:00--> 00:20:29

Oh the accounts of people, but they go and they mentioned to Allah, so and so the son of so and so, so and so the daughter of so and so, they were worshipping you, they were making dua to you. They tell Allah everything they witness, look at the opportunity. This is Leila Toluca. This is what happens on that night. So we need to really think deeply what we are going to do on Leila to Lucado.

00:20:31--> 00:20:35

Who Astok for Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah confer Estelle Pharaoh in the whole photo right.

00:20:47--> 00:20:56

In Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman Kathira a Mehrdad.

00:20:59--> 00:21:46

As we know Laila to Carter is approaching, but a lot of people ask the question, when is Layla to Carter? The simple answer to that is Allahu Allah, we don't know. We don't know when a little puzzle is, however, you have opinions of even amongst the Sahabas, who some of them were believing it was the 25th 27th or even the 29th. Obey even God, he was pretty sure that he was on the 27th because he was told by the Prophet SAW Salem that they will be a light drizzle, and he noticed in the morning of that night, the Prophet SAW Salem after the prayer in the morning, he turned around and he noticed the moisture on his forehead from the sand because of the light drizzle that happened that

00:21:46--> 00:22:37

night. However, other Sahabas they noticed the signs on other nights. So the answer to that is Allahu Allah, some of the scholars they say that it could change every year, The Night of Decree could change every year, because the signs that the Sahaba has noticed, were different every year. So we are not sure. Therefore do not just worship Allah on the 27th Night night as many of us think it is. Even though there's high chances is it could be but worship Allah in every night of the last 10 nights of Ramadan. We know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told about Leila Takata. And he was coming to the masjid to give us that information. But he was stopped by two brothers. Who

00:22:37--> 00:23:25

were Coralie, you were arguing, and afterwards, he was made to forget, which knights Laila to cover is. So he told us a hubbas that I have been made to forget, but this is better for you. This is better for you. So seek Leila to Lucado. In that particular Hadith it is mentioned on the 25th 27th or the 29th night, so we should be seeking Leila to look out. There are some signs that have been mentioned there are many weak Hadith, many modo Hadith fabricated Hadith, but there are some authentic narrations that has been mentioned about the signs of Layla Toluca, and I will mention a few of them in sha Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, which is mentioned in

00:23:25--> 00:24:18

Sahih al Bukhari, Laila to cordery Laila to answer me ha Toluca la hora wala Baraka, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, on the Night of Qadr, it will be calm, it will be serene, peaceful night, it will not be too hot nor too cold. And I want to mention relative to the season of your area, because if you witness Leila to cuddle in a place where it's winter, then it won't be as cold as it is normally. If Leila took out that happens to be in a country where it is summer that he won't be as hot as it normally is, it will be nice and peaceful for the people. It is also mentioned by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. That the next morning, when the sun rises, you will not

00:24:18--> 00:24:59

see the rays of the sun meaning the sun will not be too strong, you will be able to see the outline of the sun. And the reason for this as the scholars have mentioned, remember when I said the angels hover after the sun or that while the sun is rising, it is said that you see the rays or you see the sun through the angelic realm. This is mentioned by many of the scholars and then the angels go up afterwards. And we know for a fact that when the sun rises, it's very difficult to see but on that morning it is mentioned it will be clearly seen in sha Allah obviously if the weather permits. It is also mentioned in Sahih Muslim

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

that Ebola or the Allahu when he said when we were talking about Leila to Lakota on the presence of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, He Who amongst you? Is there anyone who remembers at night when you saw the moon the moon arose, and he was like a piece of plates. So that was an indication that the moon that nights, obviously has to be a cloudy day for us to see it. The moon that night, you will see the entirety of the moon, the shape of the entire moon with obviously the crescent that is showing pretty clearly. This is also another sign of Layla to cover. What do we do on Leila, to cover? What are we expected to do?

00:25:45--> 00:26:35

The best form of worship, on Leila, to cover is to stand in PM. One of the best worship to do on a little culture is to stand for PM, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Man call Murphy Leila to Padre Eman and YT Serban who fear Allah humatrope adama Minami. Whoever stands on Leila to call the meaning in prayer in worship with iman and hoping for rewards Allah to Allah will forgive all of his past sins. It is also very important to recite the Quran. Yes, while you are standing to pray, but at the same time you yourself if you are not, if you are praying behind an Imam, then later on yourself should be reading the Quran that night. Because that is the night when the Quran

00:26:35--> 00:27:23

was revealed. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that inna and Selena who feel a Latino culture that Verily We have revealed in the Quran on Leila, to cuddle. So have that strong relationship with the Quran and look at the opportunity. Every half every letter you recite it is multiplied by 10 already, then further than that, you automatically get minimum of 10 maximum of 700 if you recite Quran any other day, but then on top of that, it is the month of Ramadan, so that 700 would be minimum, maximum Allah Who Arland sky's the limit. And not only that, on Leila, to order, it is as if you are reciting that for 1000 months. Again, the opportunity Your calculator will not be able to

00:27:23--> 00:28:17

calculate the rewards for that every letter that you recite on Laila to God. Make a lot of dua, make a lot of dua, as we said the angel say I mean to your daughters, but one particular dua it was asked by our Aisha Radi Allahu anha. She said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when we witness the Night of Decree, what should we do? What should we ask for? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told her to say Allah Houma, Inaka Alpha One, two he bull alpha five for I need, how beautiful is this dua, and every single one of us should memorize this dua, Allah Houma in full one to hit Bulla 454 I need you may add the word Karim Allah Houma in Naka Alpha One kitty moon to hit

00:28:17--> 00:29:10

bull alpha five for Annie, beautiful dua. Look at the meaning of this dua. Oh Allah. You are the one who forgives you obliterates all sins. The word the name, allow foo is one great name of Allah subhanho wa Taala the one who obliterates again, there is no word in English that you can translate the word awful, very difficult, but to explain it, it's the one who overlooks your sins completely. The one who obliterates and it's mentioned that a person walking on sand, what do they leave behind footprints? And then imagine a storm comes a gust of wind and it comes over that place. Where are the footprints gone? It is has it has disappeared. That is an explanation of this name, the Allah to

00:29:10--> 00:29:59

Allah obliterate all of the sins that you are done, that you have done. Allahumma Inaka fu Oh Allah, you are the one who obliterates all sins, the one who overlooks all sins, to Hebrew laugh WA. You love to obliterate sins, you love to overlook sins, you love to forgive sins, fair for me. So forgive my sins, obliterate my sins, completely eradicate my sins, Allah, Allah loves that DUA and not only you are saying this to us, but the angels are saying, I mean to your two hours. At the same time, there are so many other things you can do, such as you can do other good deeds doing what the spear doing, you're still far and again, the sky's the limit.

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

charity is another thing that you can do. Online you can give charity if you are doing charity kerf if you want to give the poor and the needy on that night, please give some And subhanAllah to end off the chutzpah. Today, you and I have an opportunity. You and I have an opportunity to prepare ourselves for Leila terracotta. We have our brothers here from the Uighur Muslim community in Sydney. And we know what is happening to our brothers and sisters in East Turkistan. We know the atrocities that is happening there. The massages many of them have been wiped out in that place, and the massages that still stand no one can go and pray in there. Our brother mentioned that

00:30:42--> 00:31:24

beautifully yesterday, in during the therapy. And today those brothers are here. Because what they want to do, yes, they can obliterate the message they can. They can demolish the mosques in certain areas, but they will never be able to demolish what's in our hearts. And for those brothers and sisters who have migrated to Australia from that community. They want our help to establish a masjid and in sha Allah they will be establishing a masjid in Preston's in Sydney and focused on the Uighur community insha Allah helping them reviving Deen in their life and you will be a part of that inshallah. So there'll be standing outside and inshallah donate generously, and of course prepare

00:31:24--> 00:31:32
