Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. Brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:00:03--> 00:00:05

as we enter the last 10 days, the

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

last 10 nights of Ramadan,

00:00:07--> 00:00:10

seeking Laylatul Qadr, it is very important for

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

the believer to observe the life of Nabi

00:00:12--> 00:00:14

Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

00:00:14--> 00:00:16

And what did he do in the last

00:00:16--> 00:00:19

10 nights, And that's our example, that's our

00:00:19--> 00:00:21

role model, and that's what we should follow

00:00:21--> 00:00:23

in order to attain the reward of laylatul

00:00:23--> 00:00:24

Qadr.

00:00:24--> 00:00:25

Abu Saeed Khubri

00:00:26--> 00:00:28

narrates, and this Hadith is found in Sahih

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

al Bukhari,

00:00:30--> 00:00:33

that when Ramadan was first obligated, Nabi Sallallahu

00:00:33--> 00:00:36

Alaihi Wasallam performed the tikaf in the first

00:00:36--> 00:00:38

10 nights of Ramadan.

00:00:38--> 00:00:40

So he slept in the Masjid for the

00:00:40--> 00:00:43

purpose of worship in the first 10 nights

00:00:43--> 00:00:43

of Ramadan.

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

Then Jibril came to him and said to

00:00:45--> 00:00:46

him,

00:00:48--> 00:00:50

he said to him what you're seeking which

00:00:50--> 00:00:51

is it's

00:00:52--> 00:00:54

still ahead of you. So then Nabi

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

performed Iatiqaaf which is seclusion and sleeping in

00:00:59--> 00:00:59

the Masjid

00:01:00--> 00:01:01

for the second 2010

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

nights of Ramadan.

00:01:03--> 00:01:05

Then Jibril came to him and said to

00:01:05--> 00:01:06

him

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

He said to him

00:01:10--> 00:01:12

that which you are seeking it's still ahead

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

of you. Then Nabi

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

addressed the Sahaba on the 20th

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

night and 20th day of Ramadan

00:01:20--> 00:01:23

And he said to them, whoever had performed

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

Iritikaf with me, come back and perform Iritikaf

00:01:26--> 00:01:29

for the last 10 nights, because I have

00:01:29--> 00:01:32

been informed that Laylat al Qadr is in

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

the last 10 nights in one of the

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

odd nights of the last 10 nights. And

00:01:37--> 00:01:39

then he performed the Atikaf in the last

00:01:39--> 00:01:39

10 nights.

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

Brothers and sisters, what we see from this

00:01:42--> 00:01:43

hadith is that Nabi

00:01:45--> 00:01:46

performed Atikaf,

00:01:47--> 00:01:50

seclusion in the Masjid for an entire month

00:01:51--> 00:01:54

just to capture and observe and witness and

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

earn the reward of Laylatul Qadr.

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

This is how important the night is and

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

it is by the wisdom of Allah

00:02:01--> 00:02:04

that he made Laylatul Qadr at the end

00:02:04--> 00:02:04

of Ramadan.

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

By then

00:02:06--> 00:02:09

we are all prepared spiritually and we're in

00:02:09--> 00:02:10

that mode of worship,

00:02:11--> 00:02:13

so we're able to seek it really easily.

00:02:15--> 00:02:15

Then Aisha

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

she described the state of the Messenger

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

during the last 10 nights of Ramadan.

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

She said that when the 10 nights of

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

Ramadan began,

00:02:36--> 00:02:38

She said that he

00:02:40--> 00:02:41

tightened his waist belt,

00:02:42--> 00:02:44

and what that means is that he avoided

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

intimate relations

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

with his wives,

00:02:47--> 00:02:50

even though this is something permissible at night,

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

but he would avoid it and therefore he

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

would focus on his worship.

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

And it also means that he would put

00:02:56--> 00:02:59

much effort unlike any other night in the

00:02:59--> 00:03:00

year.

00:03:00--> 00:03:01

She also said that

00:03:03--> 00:03:05

he would waken up his family,

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

he would wake up his wives, so that

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

they also can partake

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

in this night of seeking the reward of

00:03:11--> 00:03:14

Laylat al Qadr and she also said, and

00:03:14--> 00:03:17

this is the most important here, she said,

00:03:18--> 00:03:21

he would bring his night to life.

00:03:21--> 00:03:23

You see what that means is that the

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

night is dead when you're sleeping.

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

But how do you bring the night to

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

life?

00:03:28--> 00:03:30

When you engage in worship

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

and so when Nabi

00:03:33--> 00:03:36

would engage in the entire night in the

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

worship of Allah

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

and the best of that is to be

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

standing in and

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

reading long

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

and long and

00:03:45--> 00:03:46

long sujood.

00:03:47--> 00:03:48

This is how he

00:03:49--> 00:03:52

would spend every night of the last 10

00:03:52--> 00:03:52

nights.

00:03:53--> 00:03:54

He would be awake

00:03:54--> 00:03:57

from Maghrib all the way until Salat al

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

Fajr and that's the ideal situation. If you're

00:04:00--> 00:04:01

able to do so, then you do so.

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

It's only 10 nights And if you're not

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

able to do so and you need to

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

sleep, then it is advised that you sleep

00:04:08--> 00:04:10

at the very beginning of the night. So

00:04:10--> 00:04:10

after

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

you take a break for a few hours,

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

but most importantly

00:04:15--> 00:04:18

make sure you're awake especially at the last

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

third of the night

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

engaging in salat is still far,

00:04:22--> 00:04:23

the

00:04:22--> 00:04:23

the
