Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al Hamdulillah Hello I've been I mean are salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He or Sufi remain, all praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala and may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon his servant and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as to what follows my dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam, we apologize for the inconvenience that is caused the live feed was cut for some technical issue and shall not die that we have a steady connection Now bear with me Let
my brothers and sisters in Islam, we are at the doors of the last 10 nights of Ramadan for some countries they have already began. And for other countries, they are only a few hours away from the last 10 nights of Ramadan. And these 10 nights they begin the correct opinion is that they begin on the 21st night of Ramadan for We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to allow us to witness Lee little cuddle. And we asked him subhanho wa Taala that he make the entire 10 nights and the little cuddle a source of blessing for us the evening italiana. My brothers and sisters in Islam, it is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala very allowed us and he allowed us to witness the beginning of this
blessed month of Ramadan. And so now it is even a more an agreed a blessing that allows Zoysia allows us to witness the last 10 nights of Ramadan. The 20 days that passed over Ramadan, they were all about preparing for now. They were about preparing for the last 10 nights and preparing for Leila to cuddle. Now the serious effort and the hard work is required. These days that are about to come. These last 10 nights are greater and more virtuous than the 10 days that already passed of Ramadan, which means this is good news for everyone. There is a chance and an opportunity for every single one of us that we rectify our shortcomings of Ramadan and correct our mobile and arola the
scholars that are hammer home Allah they said that the one who wastes the first 1020 days of Ramadan, he neglects the first 20 days of Ramadan, and makes the most of the last 10 nights of Ramadan is better than the one who took the first 1020 days seriously. And then the last 10 nights he neglects them altogether, that the one who took the last 10 nights serious and lost the first 20 is much better. And so this is a matter that is known in our beam that as we come towards the end of worship, that's when they are better and more virtuous than the beginning of them. For example, take a Friday for example, the last hour on Friday is better than the entire Friday because the last hour
is where the dryer is accepted. And take for example that they have an offer. The best hour during the day of alpha is the last hour, the end of the day. That is when Allah azza wa jal comes down and he praises His servants to the angels and so on. When Nabil salallahu alayhi wa sallam he said as narrated in Sahih al Bukhari, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, in normal armor, you will have a team that the deeds are judged according to the endings. So if the endings are great, then the entire deed is good, even if the beginning wasn't good, and the benefit of good and great endings the benefit of that is that it rectifies the shortcomings that took place at the beginning
of the deed will occur. So taking the last 10 nights in the last 10 days of Ramadan seriously, and making the most of what is to come of Ramadan. Now until the end of it will insha Allah ensure that whatever shortcomings took place at the beginning of Ramadan, are all forgiven if mila hidayatullah that's the benefit of making the most of the endings of any specific worship. For my brothers and sisters in Islam, as I said to you, our bond is all about the little cuddle these 20 days that we have lived. They were all about preparing for the little cut
in an aeration that is found in Sahih al Bukhari when Ramadan was made obligatory, this narration mentions and it is I will say the holy that is narrating he said that the governor in Dhaka for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actual all member of on that Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he performed the decaf in the first 10 nights of Ramadan. This was when first when Ramadan was first made obligatory. Did you know that and the visa lulla while he was in them, he performed at the gaff in the first 10 nights of Ramadan. At decaf means to seclude yourself in the masjid and to basically stay in the masjid not to leave the masjid and he did that for the first
10 nights of Ramadan for Adele, who gibreel then gibreel came to Him. And He said to him in the levy top global anomic he said to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the thing that you're seeking, which is Lila to uncover the thing you're seeking is ahead of you. So when Obi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yeah, deca financial Allsop, he did decaf in the second 10 nights of Ramadan. So he did the first 10 nights now he's doing the second 10 nights. So gibreel came team and he said to him in the lobby adopt mobile America, UK, that which you're seeking which is Lila Delgado, is still ahead of you. And so then Bassano Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
karma for hapa Sahaba. He addressed the Sahaba he gathered them and he gave them a hope but he addressed them. And he said to them, men Karnataka firmado, su Lila, his son, Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam physiologia anyone who performed their decaf in the first 20 nights of Ramadan with me, then let him come back, come back to decaf for a new read to lay that out. I have been shown a little other what you need to see to her, and then I forgot exactly what night it was. We're in a half an hour filled with it. And it is in the last 10 nights in one of the odd nights of the last 10 nights. And so he performed there decaf in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Did you know this? When
Ramadan was first made obligatory in this generation, as mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari and maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam performed their decaf for an entire month. The entire purpose was just to catch the little cover up. The first tonight jabril is telling you, it's still ahead. So he performed that decaf second to the next thing, and then God will tell him, it's still ahead until finally, Aloma now knows that leader, the other is in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. So I shared this narration with you to tell you that Ramadan is all about preparing for a little cuddle. And it is from the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he made a little cut at the end of the month.
Because by the end of the month, we should be ready, we should be used to the worship, we're in that mode of worship Allah god, look at the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so now it's at the end of the race, all your effort, and your energy and your strength is required right now, until the end of this month. Then when a lead comes, you have all right to celebrate a lead. celebrating a lead is for your worship for your hard worship of the last 10 nights. So now, you must seek Allah sergeant's help, that he aid you and give you the strength and power that you worship him like you have never done before. During these last 10 days, and these 10 nights, especially the Knights, look my
brothers and sisters in Islam on your own, you cannot achieve anything or lucky on your own you cannot achieve anything you need to ask Allah sosial and this is the first point on how you're going to prepare for these last 10 nights. Take a step back, relax, acknowledge that you on your own will not be able to do anything at all. Therefore acknowledge that you need a large social help. You need Allah subhanho wa Taala support an aid. So understand that the first thing you should do is ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give you the ability that you make the most of these last 10 nights of Ramadan Lonzo shall he sisters in salt and Fatiha he cannot both what year Can I studied? What year
can Stein year Can I put you alone we worship? This is the purpose of life. And the second half what year can sustain is the means and how you're going to achieve the purpose in life. You're going to stay meaning we are going to seek your help. How are these two related in other words, we're saying we are not able to worship you unless we seek your help. And you aid us and support us in our worship for you. So make God and from the drop of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Allah who are in Niala vitiligo, a shoe Creek near evatik Allah gives me the ability and the strength, then I advocate that I continuously make Vicar of you Why should click and that I remain grateful to
my house diabetic and that I perfect my worship for you. This is a vicar and advice you're supposed to make after every font salad.
So make this to her and continuously make this to her and say now hold our water 11 learner Hola Hola. quwata illa Villa is the greatest Vicar that will inject you with strength and power and ability to continue worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala until the day you meet him be evening
hidayatullah law court. So that's the first thing in your mind, you should know that you need Allah socials help that you worship Him in these last 10 nights. My brothers and sisters in Islam, what is the little cuddle? What is it? What does it mean? What does Laila to other mean? Because when you know it's meaning, you begin to appreciate the importance and significance significance of this night, more and more. Now the word cuddle or this phrase, the little cuddle, it appears in the insula the other three times in zelner Javi Lee little cuddle, one madaraka Lea little cuddle, lateral cadre, hieromonk Alfie Shahar. Therefore, since it comes three times, and irlam out by
hammer home Allah, they said that the word other has three meanings.
Number one, other means something that is great and something that is dignified, something that is no ball, something that is honored other, for example, when they used to say Allah shouldn't vote other this is a man rule. Meaning he's a great, honorable noble man, right? This is what other means. So Laila Carter was given this name, because it is a great night. It is a night of greatness. It is a night of honor. Laila to other Why is it great? Because of course you know, for many reasons, that the worship during this night is better than 1000 months of worship gibreel alayhis salaam and the angels they come down. It is a night full of Peace and mercy and forgiveness. The
Quran was revealed during this night. Remember that those of the paradise are still open, the gates of the Hellfire are still closed and the devils are chained. So many beautiful things are happening. Therefore, it was called les little cutter meaning a great night, a night of honor and dignity. Also Pamela leave at the other was on it. It was a night that was honored since Alonzo Hill created the heavens in the earth. But it did not carry the same virtue on honor and honor as we know today, any better than 1000 months and so on. That wasn't the case. Leila Takada existed when Allah created the heavens in the earth, but when the Quran was revealed on tour Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi
wasallam. This is when the night became increased in its honor and nobility. And that's when its virtues became clear that it is that the worship in this night is better than 1000 months and all the other virtues that we we just mentioned. So the first meaning of other is a great night a virtuous and an honored night. The second meaning of cuddle is
a cuddle, which means decree you know how one minute will cut that if it you are shattered, that one of the six pillars of event is to believe in the Divine Decree the good and the bad. So Laila Takada means the Night of Decree, why is it called The Night of Decree, because during lay little cuddle on that night,
this is when the decree is handed down to the angels, Allah subhanho wa Taala, he says, fee hair, meaning during let the other you follow to kulu amarin Hakeem that every single matter that is going to be decreed from this little cutter until next year, a little cutter every single matter that is going to happen. Allah subhanho wa Taala hands down that information to the angels. And they begin to carry those tasks out until next until next D. So who's going to live this IE, who's going to die, who's going to be struck by poverty, who's going to become rich, what land is going to go dry and barren and affected by drought, and what land is going to be cultivated and alive, who's going
to get sick, and who's going to increase in his health? What wars are going to take place and which earthquakes are going to strike every single thing in detail is given to the angels on Laila to cuddle? So it was called the little cuddle the night of the cream, and then our best probably Allah, one who he said, you may see a person after the night of God, you may see a person who is walking in the marketplace, while his name has been decreed among those that are going to die that he and he will not live until he sees next Laila to Allah Hawker. And this meaning has been narrated by the normal will be Malik or Mujahid, or biohack and more than one have a self or hammer home Allah,
Allah azza wa jal he says Fie how you flow. kukula amarin Hakeem there on this night, every single matter that is decreed that is going to happen in your life and everything around you, is handed down to the angels, and they will carry those tasks out Hakeem you for Julio amarin Hakeem, the decree of Alonso gel has been described as Hakeem hacky mean full of wisdom and hacky means layer.
But then while you're here, it is not changed and it is not altered. And it also means as we said, Hakeem wisdom that allows socials command and decree is full of wisdom. Then Allah azza wa jal said among men and dinner, it is our decree that we give to the angels, it is our decree. You know what this means law, when you read the word, a moron meaning dinner, it is almost decree, therefore our skin during these nights that he decree what is good for you, since the decree is handed down this night, in Laila the other and Allah is saying it is from us, were the ones that decide in the Cree, ask Allah so version, that He gives you a good other, you know, just like in the diet, it's the
whole diet is the whole a part of it is to see what could be Li and higher a high frequent, or law decree for me what is good wherever I am from merlini Bay, and they make me pleased with the color that you decree and remember a duac can change the other, as in the beast, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, layer or other elaborate, nothing will change the backpedaled except a dryer. So since the little cuddle was called that, which means the Night of Decree, because the decree is handed down to the angels, ask Allah, ask Allah that he save you from the bad karma that was decreed for you. And ask him subhanho wa Taala, that he writes for you Good other wherever you are, and that
you're pleased with his other subhanho wa Taala. So Pamela, my brothers and sisters in Islam, what do we learn from the fact that the color is handed down during these nights? was more specifically during Leila together? What do we learn?
Why is it this? Why is this the case that the product is handed down to the angels during a lot of other, you know, focus and pay attention to this, because during the entire ye
the days that are filled with the most worship of the last 10 nights of Ramadan, that's without a doubt, from among all the nights of the the ones that are filled with the most worship are the last two nights of Ramadan. So we see a direct relationship between the Qatar and our worship. For ma subhanho wa Taala hands down the worship to the angels on the nights in which our worship is increased. Which means the more worship be in the lead, the more goodness Allah social will decree for you on La Harlequin lishi in Padilla. So in these nights, as the cutter is being prepared to be handed down to the angels, ask Allah Zoysia if any decree whatever is good for you, wherever you
are, and that he made you pleased with his kadar subhanho wa Taala. So that's the second meaning of Laila to cuddle. We said, The night of honor. We said The Night of Decree and the last meaning of paddle is to restrict to tighten something. Allah Zoysia he says, Allah we have so called Little California shall work there. It is Allah who expands provision for whoever he wants, and it is Allah who Yep, he tightens the provision for whoever he wants. So the word cuddle means to restrict to tighten something. And so later on this meaning would translate to the night of tightness, the night of restriction. Why is this the case? Why is this called a night of tightness and restriction? And
erla or hammer home Allah they said, because the angels fill the earth during Laila to cuddle. remember Allah azza wa jal existence zuly Mela Eagle, what rule that the angels come down groups upon groups, armies of angels are coming down from the sky really quick, and they descend on Earth. So the earth becomes very congested and it becomes a very limited space on Earth. So it's called the night of tightness and restriction because of how many angels there are on Earth. What about holding a lot of their loved one who narrated the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said we're in Elma he get the tilde kelela to fill up a room in other dollhouse are Allahu Akbar and Nabi
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that on the night of other during lay, let them cuddle the angels on the earth are more than the number of pebbles getting how many pebbles on there are there on Earth, the angels the number of angels are more than the number of pebbles found on earth lava Come on. So because of how many there is the earth becomes congested and very limited space on it. So it is called Lila and other the night of restriction. And alongside all these angels, the big boss comes down jabril Allah is set up and his name is a rule. A rule means the soul which you breathe was called a rush.
Because he would come down with that which gives life to the dead soul, and that is the word of Allah and why. So he was called a war because he comes down with what revives our soul, and that is the end law. Therefore, it was called Leela. Thank God for these three meanings Allah who honor my brothers and sisters in Islam. Let's speak about when is Lila
and I want to share advice with you concerning this matter. When is the little cuddle now I've been hijacked by him a whole law, he mentions over 40 opinions.
as to when the little cutter is low, awkward, you believe there are 40 opinions as to when les little cutter is some of these opinion. And these are only far from being correct. Some of them I mentioned that laser cutter is one night during the entire he could be another one could be before or after Allahu Allah when it is right. This is the only one of the extreme opinions that we kind of don't accept. But the idea is, the idea is there are 40 opinions, which means a little ml put so much effort
and read so much ahaadeeth. And trying to understand when exactly that of course is but the most correct thing to see. After collecting all the ahaadeeth related to Lila and observing all these Hadeeth the correct thing to say is three things. And that is that it is during the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Definitely.
And it is most likely in the odd nights of the last 10 nights of Ramadan. And the last thing to say is that it changes every year, it changes every it could form on an odd night. And that is most likely and there is also a possibility that it occurs on an even night. Yes, as you heard. It can occur on an even night, but most likely it occurs on an odd night.
And so Pamela just on this matter about when Lila is when Allah azza wa jal addressed the issue of Lila and others in the Quran, he never mentioned anything about when it is rather the focus was on what it is about. Allah sosial he said, One adorar can now lay it out on others. What will give you any clue as to what little cuddle is all about? And what did not say on that? I thought I'd get my dad a little cuddle. What will give you any clue as to when les little cuddle is Allah azza wa jal when he spoke about the little cuddle, he highlighted and he emphasized the what aspect. What is this night about? Allah emphasized the importance and the virtue of this night. And he did not speak
anything in the Quran about when this night is about.
And you know, why is this important? Because when you know how huge this night is, when you when you focus on the what aspect What is this night about? How important is it how significant it is, when you focus about what happens during this night, then that's enough for you to take the entire 10 nights seriously. As opposed to the person who is concerned with the wind aspect. The one who is concerned about when they let the other is such a person. his emotions are up and down. You know what that means? Meaning when when it's an odd night, he's motivated to worship when it's an even night, he's demotivated. If someone tells him I saw a dream that Lila Delgado was last night he
shattered and he doesn't Yanni put that much effort anymore. And he allows the month the finishing. Probably next year I'll make it this is what happens when you focus on when later on covered is my brothers and sisters in Islam. What a loan, the address the issue of later to cover he addressed the what issue, what is it about? Not the wind aspect, forget the wind, forget it. concentrate on what it's about. When you know how huge this night is. you're motivated to worship Allah until your last breath.
This is very important. Don't pay attention to the wind aspect. Pay your full attention to what this night is all about. Even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was made to forget when this night was by Allah so should you know
he came out to the companions he was about to tell them when exactly let them cut the rods but there were two companions that were arguing. So Allah so I should remove the knowledge of when they little but that is from the mind of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. You see what happened? You see the argument argument? What do you think? What are the consequences of arguing? knowledge was removed from this oma? And if alarm sosial wanted us to know when the little cottage specifically was he
He would have told us, just like we know when the day of our offer is, and we know when the day of Ashura is these days we know and they are virtuous days and we know when they are. So if Allah azza wa jal wanted us to know when they let the cutter is he would have told us when,
in addition to all this, the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, when the 10 Knights began, as I shall be Allah one has said, can either the halacha that when the 10 Knights would begin should debate zylon what here leedham level three things she described him as doing, he tightened his waist belt, which means that he would avoid sexual relations with his wives, even though it is hallowed to do that at night.
This is implying how serious he will take these nights. Not even an Hillel, not even sexual desire, which is something Hillel, he wanted to to pay attention to, he kept this away from him. And the next thing he would do on a level, he would bring the Knights to life, all the nights, the entire night would be filled with worship is an interview sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who is the most knowledgeable concerning when les little gathered is he himself would spend the entire night of the last 10 nights although even in worship, and finally he would wake his family up, and they would pray and they would worship with him as well. So Pamela, my brothers and sisters in Islam, when
Allah azza wa jal
wanted to highlight the greatness of later than others, the first thing he said, was laying that will cut the human elfish out that the worship during this night is better than 1000 months of worship.
Look, the first thing he mentioned, was the virtue of worship during this night.
Getting before last social told us about angels coming down and jabril coming down and that this is a night full of peace. And then when he before he told us about these virtues of little cuddle, the first virtue Allah told us was that the worship during this night is better than 1000 months of worship, what do we learn from this? You know, what we learned from this is that the honor of a person in the sight of Allah zosen is according to his worship. And we learn from this that the most important thing that is happening during let the other is the worship of the slaves of Allah salvation, that is a V most important event that is happening during these last 10 nights. You know,
what the most important event it is you worshiping Alliance origin, it is the sleeve standing in between the hands of Allah so vision and worshipping Allah, so Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala he said, how you remain elfish better than 1000 months of worship? You know, some people calculate it to being 83 years and a couple of months. But really, there is no need to calculate this because Allah azza wa jal, he said, Your min Lv shot. It's like we are forced to think 1000 months, don't think at three years, even though that's the equivalent but think 1000 months 1000 months, the worship, the worship in these nights, if you catch the little cousin,
the worship in that month, which is just a few hours from your time is going to equal in the skill, better than 1000 months of worship that had no leader to other Indian. What does this mean? You know what this means? This means Allah azza wa jal is given us a chance and an opportunity to reach the rank and the levels of the righteous people of the past that lived hundreds and hundreds of years and worship Allah during those hundreds of years.
You know, for example, Adam alayhis salaam lived 1000 years, no hallelujah Salah he lived 950 years just giving doubt his people love Allah we must have lived longer than that. prophets. No, moose Ali Salaam lived hundreds of years, there would live hundreds of years, the righteous of the past lived hundreds of years, an hour the members of this oma are only going to live between A and B they're going to live up until 60s 60s is the average 70s. Let's say well, what are you going to live?
So Allah Sohail gave us a little cuddle. If you were to worship Allah during this night, you earn
the reward of worshiping Allah for more than 1000 months, which is a lifetime. So if you were to live to witness 20 or more bonds in your life, that's 20 little cuddle, right, which equals to one almost approximate
Word 2000 years and better than this in your record of good deeds. In other words, you caught up you caught up to the righteous that lived in the past you caught up to them
for this is the importance of this night. And this is a night of celeb alarm so you can sit sailormoon II, it's an eye free of evil. And this is why, since it's an IP Salaam, since it's a night free of evil. This is why we must free ourselves from all evil and sin and transgression. Stop the cursing and the backbiting and the arguing and the fighting. Stop the harem put a complete stop to the howl. Like we're just saying that in the VESA Allah wa alayhi wa sallam would avoid the Hillel sexual relations with his wives during the last 10 nights of Ramadan. He avoided the halaal imagine what this means when it comes to how long you need to be extra vigilant. pay extra
attention. Keep away from the how long. If you're a person who is at home and tempted with the home, go to the masjid go and do a decaf in the masjid. And then decaf in the mustard is a sooner it's the best thing you could be doing in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Be in the lab it will guarantee you that you keep away from sin. And it will guarantee be if the lead that you will definitely catch a little cuddle because you're in the worship of your decaf. 24 seven, so you're in worship. Right. And the sisters as well. It is sooner for you to go and do decaf as well find a local Masjid that is accommodating they should be accommodating. And then and find a decal for yourself. the wives of
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam performed their decaf. If you find that it's better for you. And it is healthier for your email and your relationship with Allah. And it motivates you to worship Allah azza wa jal during the last night go and do a decaf. Don't waste your time. Luttwak more than Allah azza wa jal, he said, had them applying pressure. Allah soultion he said that Lila on quarter, it ends mccline facial at mach line fissured, meaning it ends at the event of visual. Now this is very interesting. Why did the last social tell us that Lila to other ends at visual event,
even though it is very obvious that every single night ends at faceoff time? Yeah, and he ever knows this. Why did Allah mentioned that Lila to other ends at Fisher time, even though we all know that every night, it's a pleasure. And the day begins at
you know, it's as though we are being told, make the most of every minute, until the last minute, which is special time laquan. So it's a new event in Florida, for example, where I live, then in visual is 415. It's as though we're being told you have until 415 lay little cutter is until 4:15am you know when when you're doing an exam, and the teacher is walking around. And he says you have 17 minutes left is how precise he is 17 minutes left? What does that mean? Meaning every minute is precious. And you as a student you're writing and every minute is precious, you're paying attention in every minute. So now when Allah says Lea little cuddle is hot, they're not lying. When Allah
tells us that they'll cut that is until Fisher time. What does that mean? Meaning keep going. Don't stop. Don't waste a second. Don't waste the second You have until then we'll measure. So if then in future in your country, then as I told you, it's here it's 415 it's as though I'm being told you have until 415 or until 416 that's how precise it is. That's what I'm applying for is your means. And why is this important to mention to you my brothers because yeah, they my brothers and sisters in Islam because people what happens to them towards the end of the night of later so they prepare their support. Once they've eaten this whole they're kicking back sit down you know waste time talk
to others and as though the night's finished they're not the night's not finished. Have your support and quickly get back to worship quickly get back some core and some of course the best thing you can do just before then and Fisher is still engaged in Cincy. Honest, is still fall seeking Allah subhanho wa Taala has forgiven us from all your sins of the past one law one law one law e one one just one a stouffville law that comes out from a honest sin see how before then official during that time of a sound and if it was legal at all other if you didn't doing this every now
Night of the last two nights you'll surely catch later. Just one one lie he just won a stouffville Allah is enough to destroy an entire past and a history of sins. what are called make the most of it my brothers and sisters in his lap.
These last 10 nights of Ramadan they require jihad. They require huge effort and sacrifice. Why do I mention the word Jihad specifically? Because emammal berhadiah Rahim Allah pay attention to this.
When he wrote the book, when he collected the a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a book he called Sahil Bihari.
He made chapters and under every chapter, he made another chapter. And one of these categories getting the chapter of jihad when it came to the chapter of jihad, where he collected all the Hadith related to jihad, he severely layer one of the categories in this chapter, he he called it bearable jihad, the middle imen, that jihad is from Even it is from Eman And then he mentioned a hadith that proof this one of the head, if you mentioned was the hadith of Layla
and Jani seeking Leila. And so it has your name of Allah. He said,
commenting on the wisdom, why did the enamel Buhari put a hadith concerning later in the chapter of jihad? Why shouldn't you be in the chapter of Ramadan and hijaab wahala. He said, that, look how smart he was. He put this hadith in the chapter of jihad, so that he can tell us that Laila to other requires jihad. It requires maximum effort. Give the last 10 nights all you got. We need Jihad my brothers and sisters in STEM he heard in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. full effort, strife and struggle as much as you can. Well, my Eman Melaka I'm Allah Yanni when he was asked about you know a person leaning on the wall leaning on the wall, just to support himself because of how long
he prays in America, he said I dislike this for the obligatory prayers, and it is permissible in the voluntary prayers. Yanni Yannick lean lean on the wall if you have to find support for your long nights of solid Allah IE my brothers and sisters in Islam, it is only 10 nights.
If you want to guarantee if you want to guarantee the reward of Lila the other Listen up, I'll give you I'll give you a solution guaranteed that you will catch the little garden and earn its reward. Isn't this everyone's question listen to how brief The answer is.
Make the most of all the last 10 nights and put maximum effort in all the last 10 nights guaranteed. You will catch the little cupboard and you will own the complete reward of little cupboard Allah Waikato. It shall be Allah and her when she described in the piece on the law while he was willing to listen listen to the description of rasulillah don't bother yourself with these action plans or what am I supposed to do and listen, learn from your messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and do like him not your action plan for the last 10 nights. It shall be Allahu anhu. She said, Kenny there the Hanalei Should I really don't know what that question means. I did mention this Hadith, too. But
this is another narration in sorry, Muslim, there's an added word listen to it. She said that when the last 10 nights began, yeah, Lila who he brought the night to life. What does this mean? He brought the night to life.
Unit because when you sleep, you're dead. When you sleep, you're dead. So bringing the bite to life, meaning remaining awake all the night in worship, of course not really waking up on your phone in worship, or a cover. And he woke his family up he woke his wives up. To me. That's how much concern he had for his wives and for his family. He doesn't want the opportunity to pass by them while they're asleep. He'd wake them up, wake up your family. Why should the jet demeaning and he put all his effort? Why should they miss out? Or should they miss out? Meaning he tightened his waist belt which means to think two things he kept away from sexual relations and it also means tightening your
waist belt, meaning putting full effort and energy any putting effort was mentioned twice just that he put all his effort shut the limits up he put all his effort. What does that mean? Yeah, I shall be Allah. My name is emphasizing how much effort he put in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Something he would never ever do during the entire year. But when the last 10
came, he pushed it all his guts on the law while he was and that's our action plan. That's what you're supposed to be following. They shouldn't have Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So from this Hadith, what we learned is that if you're able to sleep during the day, then do that, sleep most of the day, and then be awake for all of the night. This is the best way to approach the last 10 nights. So let's be realistic as well. If you're unable to sleep during the day, because you have work, or a mother has children, she has to take care of care and look after my last social, reward everyone and make easy for everyone. But if you're unable to find hours in the day in where you can
sleep, and you have to sleep at night, then the earlier you sleep, the better sleep the first part of the night. Sleep the first part of the night sleep two, three hours, four hours, whatever you need. But make sure make sure that the last part of the night You're awake. If you need to sleep at night, then make that sleep at the beginning of the night.
And make sure you're up at least half a half the night at least for half the night at least. If not that at least the last third and don't reduce that at least
like him, and remember and maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said men calm and a little cadre. Amen and what are the seven orefield Allah hometel kept them in them be imagined the matter remember this Habib, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Whoever stands in worship during little other, amen and out of faith, meaning he believes there is such a thing as the little cutter that Allah mentioned in the Quran, that also Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us about a man and believe that there is such a night that is virtuous. Amen, amen. Kenny when you get up, amen and also means that when you get up you get up.
Your love for Allah is what gets you up. We're living near between Lila beam those who get up for their Lord pieces, amen and out of love for Allah sosial and for what Allah azza wa jal has of prizes as gifts, that he offers his servants on the day of judgment in the paradise get up for that reason, he man, what is heaven and seeking the reward from Allah. So again, seeking the reward, get up then, and seek the reward from Allah and ask him that he grant you the paradise. You know, monk, karma League, a little country, amen. And YT seven, don't get up because while everyone is awake, might as well just get up because everyone's up. That's not even. That's you're getting up because
everyone's up, refresh that intention. And make sure you're getting up. Amen. And for the love of Allah Sargent for his pleasure seeking his reward. That's why you're supposed to get up. And the main thing my brothers and sisters in Islam is how do you know besides orfila level meta condom in Zambia, whoever stands in worship during leader or other, Allah forgives all his past sins. The main thing my brothers and sisters in Islam is to be honest with a lot so we should be honest with Allah. Right. And so this is Yanni answering for those people that are sick, that they cannot stand in worship, or the woman who is menstruating. She cannot pray. The main thing is that Allah accepts
this night, and Allah accepts it. If the heart is honest and sincere. Whether you're praying or reading, or doing Vicar or giving charity or looking after the needs of others, or making diet or engaging enough God, whatever you're doing whatever you're doing, that doesn't matter. The main thing that counts here is your honesty. If Allah subversion accepts the honesty and sincerity that's in your heart on that night, that's it you're the reward of Lila
laquan so that's that's the focus here. Be honest, be honest, in your worship with a lot decency in your worship with Allah so vision. Remember all our deeds. They're all about honesty. If they are honest and sincere, they are accepted. Right? So don't bs yourself. How many lockout Should I pray? What should I read? What diet should I make? What because you relax, relax, we know all this stuff. We know all these pre whatever you can read the Quran, increase, do account do all this. The main thing is honesty and sincerity. If your worship is honest and Cincy, it's accepted by Allah and that's exactly what we want. Now, it doesn't matter about the quantity. What matters is the quality.
So make sure your heart is present with your worship during these last 10 nights. My brothers and sisters in Islam
Yes, when we're speaking about worshiping a lot during the last two nights, especially the odd nights
In the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam, when he prayed the night prayers in congregation with his companions during the Ramadan, and this happened in the first year of Ramadan only, this is the hadith of Abu Dhabi a loved one. He said that the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he prayed in congregation with his companions on the 23rd night of Ramadan, and he prayed the first third of the night. And on the 25th night of Ramadan, he prayed until the middle of the night. And on the 27th night of Ramadan, he prayed the entire night
of Allah Allahu anhu. He said, Sheena, and your Fulton and fella. He prayed the entire night until we were worried that we will miss out on alpha, alpha, meaning
we worried we will add Artemis as a whole. That's how unreasonable Allahu alayhi wa sallam spent the night in salette until the Sahaba. Worried Are we going to have time to eat some food on earth? I tell you, my brothers and sisters in Islam, you push your worship all the way until then and Fisher. That's what Allah said Salaam when he had them apply and Fisher, Laila, the other is with us until then we'll measure.
Then the Doha that is supposed to be made during these last 10 nights, as it shall be a long one here she asked the messenger salallahu alayhi wasallam. She said the mela sumulong. If I feel that it is Lila to others, what do I actually make? He said, say Allah Hama in NACA for one to hibbeler, for fire for honey, Allah in the golfo Oh Allah, you are the one who parents, you are the one who forgives to a bola food you love to forgive laquan now my brothers and sisters in Islam, when you recite this diet, stop at the word to him
and ponder over this word to him would
you love to forgive? You love to pattern?
What does this mean? Who, who in this world? Do you know that has this attribute? Who on earth do you know that loves to forgive?
This is exclusive
only to Allah so
this is an attribute only for Allah so we can offer here he loves to forgive. Yes, people forgive. People love to forgive, but there is a limit to everyone. There's a limit on how much he can forgive you. If I wronged you once you might forgive me, I wronged you two times you might forgive me. But if I run you 10 times you're gonna forgive if I wronged you 50 times Are you still going to forgive me impossible you'll find a human being like this. But look up Allah subhanho wa Taala he loves to forgive. And his love to forgive is unlimited. No matter how many times you felt a loss Georgian loves to forgive you any cannot wait to forgive you just run to his door and ask for forgiveness.
And so make this Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught Aisha Allahumma in a careful to him Palazzo five one. Forgive my sin. Forgive. You know there are narrations that mentioned Allah Houma in the gaff, wouldn't Kareem.
But in the actual narration, the word Kareem is an addition. So the correct Hadith, and the correct da is Allah in the gaafu to hibbeler for funny without Kareem. Kareem was written by a new self, they call them the other two self, only the people that he only collected the Hadith and they and they wrote it with their pins in the book, they added this word Karim. So it's not part of the original narration. And also this narration, it is being discussed among in order. Some say it's by if some say it's signed, but doesn't matter. Because this is a drier and drier is legislated Islam and drought for long, so it shouldn't forgiveness is from one of the most important right in our
life. And it was the most record dry on the tongue of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he would say a stone for a lot of stone for a lot of stuff and a lot more than 100 times a day more than 70 times a day. Right? So on lahoma in regard to him when I found for a knee, even though some people might say it's bife right? Some Some say Some say it's saya There is no doubt that it is permissible to make this diet and to seek a lot of social forgiveness during this night. So don't get caught up in this argument because I know what happens to people on WhatsApp or social media is that all it takes is one person to put out the word this how do you feel stiff? And there we go. We
have an entire chaos in the room and everyone now is doubting is Dean wonder how la quwata 11. So avoid all this. Everything is easy. If I had if he was buying doesn't necessary.
really mean that it's thrown out and we don't do by it. There are certain ahaadeeth that are boys that are classified weak, that we're allowed, we're allowed to do by them in Islam there are conditions, so long as the Hadith is not extremely weak, and so long as it does not contradict another Hadith that is, or an area in the Quran. And so long as this hadith is speaking about something that has origins and foundations in the deen, so if we look at this Hadith, right of, I shall be allowed to say Allah in the careful to him Allah for fire for Honey, it's not extremely weak according to those who say it's weak rather, it is authentic to a number of allameh
its weakness is not heavy, right? According to those who declared it weak. It doesn't oppose any Hadith, in the Sunnah. And it doesn't go against any area in the Quran. And it has a foundation in the de and that is seeking a loss forgiveness. This is legislated for every moment in your life, whether it's in the day or in the night and humbly let but you know what's interesting in this diet of hadith of a shot of the Allahu anhu
Why didn't marry some Allahu alayhi wa sallam director to ask Allah for forgiveness,
as opposed to many other things he could have told her to do. And he could have said to her, ask Allah for Allah Jenna asked Allah the paradise asked a motion that will feel those, there are many things that he could have pulled her to say. But he said to her, ask Allah for his forgiveness. Why? Why?
Because forgiveness is the door to unlock pleasure. And it is the door to the paradise and only slaves of Allah that knew the meaning of worship, and knew who Allah is only the sleeves that no Allah stojan they are the people that increase in effectiveness. This is why in the Reese Allahu alayhi wa sallam had a lot of forgiveness in his life, because he was the most who knew Allah subhanho wa Taala he was the one who knew most about Allah, the more is still far in your life, the more seeking forgiveness in your life, that is a sign that you know Allah so again, and that, you know, Your Worship is full of shortcomings that need to be patched up and repaired. And so a
stouffville law would patch them and repair them for you. And it's still far more correct your worship You know, Danny Lee little other we don't know. Did we spend the in the way along so shall wants from us? was a law pleased with our worship or not? We don't know. So at the end of that night, see your stuff that Allah stuff that Allah which is the time of sahab before vision. And when you say a stuffed animal like that, especially this diet, a lot of meat in the calf 124515151 Forgive me, pardon me, when you make that, that that buyer, if a lot accepts one of them, it will fix up all the shortcomings and the errors that took place during that night of worship.
And so you're motivated to worship Allah once again the next night. Right? So only those who know Allah truly increase in they still fall. And as I said, this is why maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam still sell photos a lot, because he knew who Alonzo Shan was. A lot of social inequality he said, was said, Oh, man, fill out the middle of bigger was your net in Alberta similar to a
rush and run to a forgiveness of your Lord and a paradise. He mentioned forgiveness first, then the paradise Why? Because if you own a loss, forgiveness, the Paradise is guaranteed for you. You don't have to worry about the paradise anymore. My brothers and sisters in Islam what cripples us what disables us from the worship, and from the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal is our sins. And the only solution to that is Allah social forgiveness. And the only way we're going to earn a loss forgiveness is by asking a lot of forgiveness sincerely, and honestly with a present heart and selecting the times of the day in the night in Where do I is accepted. Like later on, especially
especially the end of the night just before they're lonely Frasier,
my brothers and sisters in Islam, we're almost going to conclude I have a few more very important points to share with you. Listen to me very carefully on this point.
What I want to share with you is
don't underestimate the power of the day towards the night. What do I mean by this? I want to explain to you now, what is the relationship of the day of the last 10 days of Ramadan towards the nights
during the days of these last 10 days of Ramadan during the days, be humble, be well mannered, stop your sins, put a stop to them and you can do it. Allah will give you the strength and the ability at least for these last 10 nights and 10 days day.
I'm speaking about the days now. You know, we should stop sins altogether. But especially in these 10 nights stop.
Be humble during the day. Your humility during the day will have a positive effect on your night and how you're going to spend this night. Yeah, now I want you to think of this. Think of the day as being us standing outside the castle. Right? Think of Layla as being a castle, and there's a door.
And so during the day, we're outside this castle. And as soon as Muslim event takes place, whenever the event is called, The door of the castle is open. Now you enter a little puddle. Now, when you're outside the castle, waiting for the doors to open, how do you behave? How do you behave? Let's see. You're outside a castle. And you're going to meet a king in a few hours. How would you behave outside this castle? Why don't you be well mannered and humble? Right? What you be any act like nervous. That's how you should be thinking you should be thinking during the day. What am I going to ask a lot during the night? What am I going to ask the king? Now when I intelli little cuddle? What
do I need from him? So be humble during the day? And think think think how what are you going to do during the night? When modeling approaches? What are you going to spend how you're going to spend that night? Allah subhanho wa Taala he described this in the Quran about Iboga ramen is suitable for
when Allah azza wa jal described the servants of a white man, the humble servants of Allah. He described how they are in the day. Then he described how they are at night. He said in the day, yum shoe now out of the hole, that they carry themselves out in society with humility. They are humble during the day. humble, meaning with the servants of Allah. They are humble with the commands of Allah. As soon as the event takes place, the rungta are solid, they perform their prayers, they worship Allah they keep away from the sins. This is what it means to be humble on Earth. They keep away from arrogance, from swearing at people they keep away from sin and from transgression.
When that was them in the day when they were humble in the day, what was the next quality Allah azza wa jal, he said, Well Levine a ob tune and our beam Superjet and walkie Anna, and those who spend their nights for their Lord Superjet and ensued, prostration Wakayama and standing in prayer,
Allahu Akbar, you ask, how did they achieve such success, that they were able to stand in worship and worship Allah for many hours of the night. The Secret was, that they behaved during the day. They were well managed during the day. They avoided sins during the day. So when the night came, Allah azza wa jal woke them up. And Allah gave them strength and power and ability that they worship Allah Zoysia during their night long walk about what a meaning don't lose sight of this meaning. So the day is just as important as the night.
I'm not for the one who's arrogant during the day, sitting during the day, and transgressing during the day, he's going to find it difficult to worship during the night, even though the door of repentance and forgiveness is also open for such a person during the night as well. A lot of Allah's mercy covers everyone, and it is there any accommodates for everyone, no matter what your situation is.
My brothers and sisters in Islam.
Focus during these last 10 nights that you pray your obligatory prayers on time for the men, pray them in the masjid. For a woman, it's best for you to pray at home. But if you pray in the masjid, also, that is fine and acceptable no problems. Margaret Asia and Fisher every single night make sure make sure because Leila is during these times, it's between these times they let them cuddle is between Margaret
and Fisher. The little cuddle is going to happen between Margaret and Fisher.
So take care of these because these are the obligations. Everything you're going to do in between other than I shared is going to be voluntary. So it doesn't make sense that you neglect the obligation. And then you focus on that which is voluntary. Don't fall in this trap and this mistake, focus on your obligatory prayers, perfect them. Then give time for the voluntary prayers. You'll feel much more comfortable that way now. And so the best thing as we said in how you're going to spend these nights we said the entire night. You should make
time that you wake for all these last 10 nights the entire night. If you can't I already explained to you what you do at least sleep
The beginning of the night and make sure you're up for most part of the night. The best thing is prayer, or an enjoy prayer plan and diet
and these three things can be all joined in a summit. So how do you do this? by standing long time while you're standing reading plan, spend a long time reading Quran and ensued long
and don't be confused and say but I didn't know a lot of Quran What am I read? You can open almost half and read from the most half. That's permissible.
If you don't know how to read, read one surah and repeated repeated 50 times 100 times no problems. Even if it was one area you know, repeat the a repeat the 100 times and maybe sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it was narrated that he stood in solid one whole night repeating one air in the air. And that is the second last air in Salton man either into a VIP home for a number marybelle to quote in Darfur loan for in NACA anthologies will hacky. He repeated this idea the entire night.
You know, and when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was in Mecca, and Allah had commanded him from the early days in Mecca to get up and pre the Knights. What did you have of the Quran? He only had Acropolis Malbec under the hammock and something from Sultan Muslim mill. sola Veta. That's it. How is the law telling him pray the whole night come in late in the kalila. Pray the entire night except a little bit of the night Go and sleep. How he only had a few.
He repeated the Ayad. Right. So there's no issue repeat the everyone can have a long standing. If you cannot stand Sit, sit, don't waste the opportunity. The best thing you can do is be in salad. Because salad it brings the night to life in salad, all the Pillars of Islam gather in salette Did you know this? All the Pillars of Islam gather in solid. What are the pillars of Islam? A shadow, a shadow shadow later a llama shadow number hammerless all along. So when you're praying, you are fulfilling a shadow, which is authority you're fulfilling tauheed you're praying for law social, was solid is full of vigor is vigor. Subhan Allah, Allah subhana wa vilavi it's full of liquor. Then the
next pillar in Islam is a solid, solid solid. The third pillar in Islam is fasting. In insolate. You are fasting, you're not allowed to eat you're not allowed to drink. Then the fourth pillar in Islam, sorry that the the third pillar in Islam is
a second. A second. That's the sorry, the second is a pillar in Islam by how is the cat fulfilled in your salad? You know?
How is this the case of a hammer home Allah they said that when you stand in pray, you're solid is a purification for your time, just like Zechariah to Mel is a purification for your money. And time is equal to money, whatever you need the time time is equal to money. So when you have money, you give executor to you purify your money 2.5% he gives that how do you purify your time, your time, your time that is full of sin and transgression. How do you purify this time by a solid, therefore a solid is the Zakat of time. So that purifies your time. When you stand those minutes those hours in salon, you are purifying your time. And then the last pillar of Islam is a hash, and how is solid
related to an housh because of hash, the Hajaj they intend the house of Allah they go to the house of a law and in solid, you are facing the house of Allah. So there is that element that is shared with an housh in solid, you are facing the house of Allah, which is a lot. So the best thing you can do is a salette long standings, reading the Quran and repeating the IRT if you don't know a lot of plan,
if you get tired, sit down, and then long suit in where you make the hair in the suit and the best. As we said a lot of men that gavel to HIPAA law for fall for her knee, lockable. And for the woman that cannot observe the prayer, or the sick person that is unable to stand in prayer or sit and pray. Doesn't matter. read or listen to make dua, Vicar charity. As I said to you, my brothers and sisters in Islam The main thing is that a large social sees sincerity and honesty in your heart. That's it. This is the main thing if Allah wants to see sincerity, whatever if you're reading and praying whatever you're doing, be sincere and honest with him.
If a lot was to accept that, that's it. You're only looking at that and perhaps perhaps on that night, a lot of soldiers and freeze our necks from the fire law court, we ask a lot Zoysia we ask a lot of Sergeant to give us a moment of inertia in our life to fill our a bear dead with Sure. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he give us sincerity and honesty and a prison heart in our door and in our worships. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that He forgive our sins, we ask him subhanho wa Taala that he decree for us what is best for us and he decree good decrees for us. We ask him subhanho wa Taala to save us from the calamities of this life and the hereafter, we asked subhanho wa Taala we
asked him subhanho wa Taala. To save us from the calamities of available cover, we asked him subhanho wa Taala that he gives us the ability and the strength and the power, that we worship Him as best as we can, with all our effort during these last 10 nights of the blessed month of Ramadan. And we ask last version to accept every moment of worship from us. And we asked him subhana wa ala that he rectify our manners. We asked Him that He gives us good manners. And we ask him subhanho wa Taala that He forgive our shortcomings and our sins and our transgression and that he guide us and keep us guide us and keep us steadfast on the path until the day we meet him Subhanahu wa tada in
harmony with ethical quarterly. He has a como la heylen. My brothers and sisters in Islam
are salam wa salam O Allah Carla and maybe you know Muhammad, what other le he was so happy as your main was Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
