Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah five things that our beloved prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam used to focus on doing during the last 10 nights of Ramadan? And this is a question that we always get asked, what should we be focusing on. And the best thing to focus on is focusing on what our Prophet alayhi salatu salam used to focus on. And all of these things are taken directly from his sunnah, at least set out to a Salam. The first thing was mentioned by I showed the Allahu anha, when she said that, if the 10 knights would come, he would increase in his HT head, meaning he will become even more serious, even more focused and more devoted during these last 10 nights. And the question

00:00:37--> 00:01:09

always comes up, but what are the deeds what are the man that we should be focusing on these people want to ask all the time, and do the same actions that we were focusing on before in the first 20 days of Ramadan, but we're going to increase in them so we're going to increase in all Quran during these last 10 Nights, we're going to make our salad a bit longer. Maybe we'll do like they do in some countries where we pray that you know the total we we divided we pray part of it after Isha and part of it during the last third or the middle of the night. And then we're also going to increase in our dhikr of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, we're going to increase in our dua, all of these things we're

00:01:09--> 00:01:48

doing we're going to increase them during these last 10 nights. And there's two other things two bonus things in general Tada that we can add to this also taken directly from the sunnah of our beloved prophet Sallallahu sallam. One of them is the dua that we should be making during these nights. And this was taught to Aisha Radi Allahu Allah when she said, What should I say? When I'm observing later? COVID We're hoping that it's little Kado worshipping during these times, what is the dua that we should be saying? He said and he told her la Salatu was Salam to say Allahumma in Nica for one to hibel alpha five one ni O Allah, you are the offer giving you love to forgive so

00:01:48--> 00:02:22

forgive me Yeah, little bit, I mean, and the second thing is taken from as soon as well, which is the issue of giving sadaqa and this is something we should be doing throughout Ramadan. And we know this from the hadith of Abdullah bin IBISWorld. The Allahu Anhu that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was the most generous of people and the most generous he would be would be during the month of Ramadan mean, he would increase and always tell the brothers and sisters, you know, from the beginning of the month, given sadaqa, but have something left for these last 10 Nights. When you give sadaqa during these last 10 Nights, you're giving it during it's activated by that's better

00:02:22--> 00:02:55

than 1000 months. So now imagine how it's going to be multiplied during these nights. And heaven that law has made it so easy for us now where we can do this, we don't have to go out of our houses, we can just get our phones and go to a trusted charity, we can go with our laptops, and it's done. The donation that we want to do so have something that you want to do, even maybe four or five things you want to do. I'm going to feed some families for a couple of months or for a year I'm gonna sponsor some food packs, I'm going to sponsor an orphan, I want to you know, just give some general sadaqa jariya I want to maybe build a menu with different things that you want to do donate

00:02:55--> 00:03:27

during these nights. And you might ask Who should I donate to what's a trustworthy charity? My recommendation, obviously is the charity that work with and I can vouch for 100% which is one of my charity, or any other charity and I'll put a link for you guys in the description box below. But in any charity, you know that you know are trustworthy, and they're going to make sure that they give that amount to the people inshallah do it during these blessitt Nights. So these are the things that general things that we should be increasing on and focusing on during the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Now, the second and the third, and the fourth thing that he would focus on Ali salatu salam, they're

00:03:27--> 00:04:03

all mentioned in one Hadith also narrated by Aisha Radi Allahu anhu, that when the last 10 Nights would come in, the first thing he would do, she said she had them, Zahra hope that he would tie a bizarre. That's the literal literal translation. But what's meant by that the scholars mentioned two definitions or two explanations. The first is that he would become more serious, more focused. And the second one was, and that's interesting, the first one, you look at it, because we have the same expression in English. When someone wants to get serious, what do we say? So now it's time to roll up the sleeves, let's do it. Let's get to work. So the same any example given here, and the Hadith

00:04:03--> 00:04:36

about tying the Tsar, the second any explanation was that he would not have relations with his wives during this time. He was just too busy during these times to devote it to focus on the worship. So he wouldn't have relations with his wives. Does that mean it's not obviously if you're at the caf, he would understand and he why he would have relations but even when we're talking about affording the house as well, and we really shouldn't take advantage of every minute. And if it's something someone asked, does that mean, we can't have relations? No, of course not. Obviously, this in itself as a body if you want to have relations with your spouse, you can do that a Hamdulillah. But perhaps

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

any focusing more on the Father will be the best thing to do and it's what we learn from the Sunnah during these 10 nights. The next thing mentioned the Hadith, which is the third thing on our list of the five is that he would hear Leeloo that he would stay awake meaning for the entire night, he will be awake at least Salatu was Salam. And he as we know from his sunnah, that he would sleep part of the night and worship part of the night throughout the year and

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

This was also the way that he would do during the other days, the first 20 days of Ramadan. But during these last 10 nights, he would stay awake for the entire night for the majority of the night, if someone can't do it, and so we should try our best. And if we need to sleep, just get like a power nap brothers and sisters don't, for example, will be awake for half of the night or just a third of the night and then sleep the rest, try your best to get powered out, even if it's sometimes an hour a bit more, and then wake up in worship for the remaining part of the night. Make sure you're worshiping you're not wasting your time during these nights. The fourth thing, which is the

00:05:33--> 00:05:50

third thing, which in the second narration is that she said Roby Allahu anha was at a level that he would wake up his wives. And what do we mean from this, there's a clear thing that he obviously, it's not just focusing on ourselves.

00:05:51--> 00:06:24

And he, as many of us do, many of us, it's just like, this is the blessed time just focus on my Quran on mine Tilawat my things, and we're not focusing on our families. So what we should be doing, we should be reminding one another, encouraging one another. And that's the obviously we can see that clearly from the Hadith. But I want to go even deeper, I want to do a bit of a double reflecting with you guys, let's go a bit deeper, because one of the things that really has an impact on us is us being distracted by our devices during these days of just becoming generally lazy. So we have an a commitment, we're going to remind one another, and my son who's here with me filming now,

00:06:25--> 00:06:57

behind the camera, he's been reminded now not to be lazy during the nice and shallow Tada. And he really if he sees me being lazy, he's like, you know, be my father, be careful, you don't wanna it's less than nice. You see me, for example, watching something, or watching a clip or funny clip or, or watching an imminent MMA highlight is I might have to do from time to time when I have some free time. But it's not the time during these nights. It's also a reminder to another, you know, to be focused, not just to be awake, but also to be focused during these nights. So these are two things, we benefit from that part of the narration of the Hadith. And the fifth thing that he would focus

00:06:57--> 00:07:31

on, at least Allah was salam, as we all know, is making a decaf, and decaf and handle if you can make it it's a great blessing, something you should be doing. If it's not something you can be doing during the days of COVID, then at least make a place in your house where you are secluded, and focused on worship. Yes, it's not considered. I think half the scholars have mentioned even some of them the Ag map, the consensus that the IDF has to be an emergency, you can't really make a decaf in the house. But you can make the similar things with similar objectives. What's the objective and decaf is being isolated in order to be focused on your worship. So the same thing you can do in your

00:07:31--> 00:08:02

house, remove the devices, put them in a high place on a high shelf, you have to lock them and something some of us might need to do that. If you're not strong enough to just put it far away from you and another room where you're not distracted by the devices in your in your isolate in your house. If you can make a decaf in the masjid Alhamdulillah even if you can't Don't forget that the correct view is that decaf can be for an hour even for a less so if I'm going to pray total here. I make the knee of Attica if until I finish if I'm going to pray totally and then I'm gonna sit for an hour read the Quran and make the intention that this is Attica. If I can do it, I've just do the

00:08:02--> 00:08:35

Knights but I can't do it during the days that I have that the intention to get that reward and shuttle Tiana. So these are five things that our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to focus on doing during his blessing night May Allah help us to follow in his footsteps and to be from those who are successful during these blessed nights to Zachman lokalen for watching the video if you benefit it make sure to hit the like button and cello Tala and if you're not subscribed, please subscribe to the channel and hit the notification key so all of our new videos when they come out, you will know about them in shallow Tala and share the fail.
