00:01:16--> 00:01:53

as we fast approach the last 10 nights of this month of Ramadan, which begins on this Sunday night in sha Allah wa tada we know that it was the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to expand more in way of worship and effort and coming closer to enlarge the agenda in those last 10 nights than he would in the first 20 nights of the month of Ramadan. And that was a principle which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam not only embodied himself, but it is something which the companions of the love language marine understood and the to apply it within their own practice of worship in this month of Ramadan in these last 10 nights of Ramadan. And that is shown in a number

00:01:53--> 00:02:02

of narrations and ahaadeeth. Perhaps the most famous of them is the narration of Alma the Irish or the Allah one in which he asks about the dua of leader to other

00:02:03--> 00:02:46

remember Timothy rocky mahalo tala collects in his jammin Allah had death an apple table to Mr. Eden on her death in a jar photo bluesoleil Manoj Dewberry, Anil gamma Sydney Hassan and Abdi lively bowrider an Irish authority Allahu Allah tiara stone Allah are at lower limb to at NIDA to Kadima poofy hair color coolly Aloma inaka iPhone to Herbalife for acne, there's two that we find this hadith of eyeshadow the Allahu Allah is a well known to her is to do either you often hear the Imam reciting in the witr prayer each and every night or throughout many nights of the month of Ramadan, especially in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. It's a divide that you're familiar with. I'm sure that

00:02:46--> 00:03:24

many of you have memorized this too. But perhaps many of us have never stopped to think about the importance of this to her and why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pinpointed and highlighted and emphasized this particular day, over and above any other invocation and supplication that you could choose to make on the nights of the last 10 seeking Lila to cover. One of the first benefits that we find from this hadith of Al Shabaab the Allah wa now when she came in, she said, O Messenger of Allah, do you see that if I find Laila to call them which to her Should I make it shows to you that she understood that from the most virtuous acts of worship, you can perform on the night that

00:03:24--> 00:04:01

you hope and wish and pray is Lila to Qatar, is to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala? Because she doesn't say your messenger of Allah. What act of worship should I do if Laila to Qatar comes? she already knows, because she understands, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would spend those last 10 nights of Ramadan, in salah and in the recitation of the Quran, and India. And that is why some of the scholars went to the position, that it is those acts of worship that Alonzo God intended when he said, Lila toccata, the human elfi shall lead leader to cuddle is better than 1000 months of worship, because that is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chose to do during

00:04:01--> 00:04:38

those nights, and other scholars said no charity and any good deed applies. But the point is that they all agreed that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't spend those nights doing other acts of worship. He spent them in Santa, in recitation of the Quran and the vicar of Allah azza wa jal, and in making dua, and I shall the Allah 100 distances. Now from the benefits that we see from this, therefore, is the love or the understanding that I shall have the Allah one has of this religion, that she doesn't need to ask the Messenger of Allah. Should I give charity on this night? Should I feed someone on this night? Should I do x y Zed act of worship on this night she knows she

00:04:38--> 00:05:00

understands because she's an observant lady. She's a scholar of this religion. She knows how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam worships when she when he's in her house, and in the presence or messenger of Allah, which do I should I make, and I shall the Allah who is a scholar from amongst the companions. It's not like she doesn't know any dance selection of familiar with the daughters of the court.

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

On will the mini the eyes of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught his companions are underrated throughout the Sunnah she knows. But she's asking what is the most important thing that I should concentrate on in terms of asking for on this night. And that is another point that we should understand. Because you can make any dwelling on the life and the Knights of the last 10 if you think it's a little further, you can ask for anything, make down for yourself, your families, your wealth, your house, anything and everything. But what is it that you should be focusing on? What is it that you should be concentrating on? That is what I share with your loved one is asking, and the

00:05:35--> 00:06:13

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as we know loved I shall have the Allahu Allah more than he loved anyone else when he was asked on messenger of Allah, Who do you love? He said, Ayesha rhodiola whiner, so he's not going to tell it to focus on something that is less important. He's not going to tell it to focus on something that maybe is okay. Or maybe if you do, he's going to tell it to focus on what is the most essential thing because they are limited hours on the night available to them. It is a finite opportunity of a few hours, you have to take that time. You have to use it wisely. Just as the people have had on the day of our offer. They don't mess around, they don't play around.

00:06:13--> 00:06:43

Once the time of the Horde comes in. There are a few hours that you have to ask for Allah to ask Allah what is of the most important and most integral things that you need. Similar to the night of other leader to call the room you don't have the time to just make do ask for anything more everything. Yes, you can. But there is something that you should concentrate on more and above anything else. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told her none of the benefits. He said Son Allah when it was sent him in the DA along Main Naka, iPhone to

00:06:44--> 00:07:24

Allah, you're the one who pardons and you'll have to pardon and that is from the names of Allah azza wa jal that He is Allah subhana wa tada and our food The one who pardons is similar in meaning to the one who forgives similar meaning to the one who has mercy and kindness and generosity towards his creation. But there is a difference between Mahavira which is forgiveness and allow for which is to pardon because almost Fira in the Arabic language in its root word means to conceal to veil. So when someone sins and Allah forgives them, he's essentially covering their sin. And we know in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever law covers their sins generally

00:07:24--> 00:08:05

speaking on Yom Okayama, he will forgive them it is a good sign. If Allah conceals our sins and veils them, that is a sign of forgiveness. He shall allow Tyler on the Day of Judgment, but when you conceal someone sin, the sin is still there, still present. All you did is draw catch and you veil the sin, but the sin is still there. The meaning of the word raffle is more eloquent. It is a higher form and a more complete form of forgiveness. Because the raffle is to expunge a raffle is to wipe out a raffle is as if it never happened in the first place. So you no longer need to conceal it. Because Alonzo would you didn't lonely, forgiven conceal and veil but Allah subhanho wa Taala wiped

00:08:05--> 00:08:17

it away as if it never occurred. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam chose this name. That is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam focused on this name. He said Oh Allah, you are the one who is

00:08:18--> 00:08:52

the one who pardons to hit bull off when you love to pardon subhana wa tada for honey. So Pardon me. For more of the things that you could ask all of the devices that the prophet SAW along while he was selling him could have taught the one that he loved most Arusha. rhodiola one and by extension, therefore, the rest of his oma. He chose to focus on this one issue. And it is extremely brief and concise, in its words, extremely comprehensive in its meanings, because there are four includes two things that are full of the dunya and the half of

00:08:53--> 00:09:30

the half of the dunya. The pardoning that Allah azza wa jal gives to people in this life in the dunya includes everything that takes place in this world because we know that the night of Qatar because actually what the Allahu anhu asked specifically She didn't say a messenger of Allah, what do I do? I'm making Ramadan. What do I do I make in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, she asks if I meet or I see Layla to cuddle. What do I should I mean, while I for them, because from the purposes of Lila to enlarge those dimensions in the Quran in surah to de Haan Fie, how are you for kukula emaline hackin Allah azza wa jal descends the decree of the following year, on the night of Lila

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

tocado, Allah has decreed everything in the local muffle the preserved tablet, everything that will happen to the piano has been written and recorded. But that decree is sent down to the earth on an annual basis a yearly basis and that night is the night of paddle and that's why some of the scholars said and there are different opinions, but some of them said it is called Laila Takada, because this speaks to the decree of Allah that He sends to the earth on that night. So when you ask Allah azza wa jal to forgive you and to pardon you

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

On the Mitel marzotto, will cause his decree to descend. And we know that the Prophet said Son, Allahu Allah, you will sell him. Nothing changes the decree of Allah. Except do nothing changes the decree of Allah except to her. You are asking Allah subhanaw taala to give you a decree for the following year, in which Allah is Allah has bestowed upon you His forgiveness and his pardon. And how many calamities how many hardships, how many tests and trials and tribulations as we've just seen in the past 18 to 24 months of the lives that we've just lived, and the experiences that we've just had, only Allah knows what the future holds. But when you spend the night making the wire, only

00:10:37--> 00:11:11

Allah knows how much evil has been warded off from him, and how much has changed in terms of the evil and hardship that may have struck you and how Allah subhanaw taala poured in view that even in those hardships in those calamities, they do strike you that you do suffer from that Allah gives you the steadfastness and the patience and the perseverance and the discipline to be able to deal with them in a way that is pleasing to Allah subhana wa Tada. So you ask Allah is dogen for Allah foo. And there are stories about if you read the stories of the scholars of how they will meet people, and they will teach them this two hour on the night that they will consider to be later to call the

00:11:11--> 00:11:48

maybe the 23rd, the 25th, the 27th night of Ramadan, and that person who had no understanding of the religion, dinner worship Allah never pray demon, the night of the 27th of Ramadan, they're outside on the streets dossing and messing around rather than worshiping Allah. But when they make this to Allah subhanaw taala transformed their lives, because they're asking Allah azza wa jal to pardon. And when you ask Allah subhanaw taala for his pardon, it is a comprehensive term that includes every good and that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught it, because if Allah pardons you and forgives you, and as his mercy upon you, then what else do you need? What more is there because

00:11:48--> 00:12:24

every good and every blessing is entailed within the mercy of Allah, every kindness, every generosity that you could possibly need in this life and the next comes from the mercy and the forgiveness and the pardon of Allah subhana wa Tada. If Allah forgives you, you are saved. If a large surgeon forgives you, you have gender. If a lot of social challenges mercy upon you, there is no force in the rest of the universe that can come and stand before the mercy of Allah azza wa jal and that is one meaning of the dunya. But then you have the second meaning, which is the life of the partner of a large sojourn and the Day of Judgment manola was was turned before Allah subhana wa

00:12:24--> 00:13:04

tada will order with all of the sins that we've committed with all of the errors that we've done with all of the oppression that we've committed upon ourselves and to one another, when we stand before a large soldier, and Allah subhanaw taala has accepted that dua, and all of it is expunged and wiped clean. That is the power of one simple data that doesn't take you more than four or five, six seconds to utter from the words of your tongue, but its meaning is so vast and so great that you ask Kalonzo JAL to treat you on the Day of Judgment, as if those sins never existed. They will be wiped away clean. And to come to a large region with a clean slate with a white page with no sins is

00:13:04--> 00:13:41

the greatest of achievement and the greatest of victory in the sight of Allah subhanahu wa tada and that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to focus on this. And handfield le mami Mirage, Rahim Mahalo to Allah. He has an amazing statement in his book, Lapa Informatica. He says, Why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell us to focus on this issue of forgiveness and pardon. When for 20 days, the first 20 days and nights of Ramadan. All you've been doing is worshiping Allah. How much Quran Have you already read? How many fasts Have you completed? How many tarawih President Salahi how many dials Have you been making for 20 days? Now the process enemy's

00:13:41--> 00:14:16

saying ask for more forgiveness make this to our Why? He says rahima Hello Tyra. Because the believer is the one who despite all of those good deeds, despite everything that they've already accomplished by the will of Allah in the month of Ramadan, the believer is the one who doesn't take you for granted. They don't know if Allah is going to accept those deeds. They don't put a guarantee on those deeds that they've completed because they don't know the quality and the level of the value that he has in the sight of Allah azza wa jal. And they know from themselves that despite even if Allah does accept them, despite all of that the sins that they have are still far greater. And the

00:14:16--> 00:14:50

blessings that Allah has bestowed upon them are far more and far more numerous. And so therefore, why wouldn't they ask for the alpha of Allah azza wa jal on these last nights of Ramadan in the hope of attaining Leela to Qatar, and that is why large xojo tells us that from the attributes of the believers is that when they come towards the end of their good deeds, when they accomplish amazing things in terms of worship, they make a still photo of Allah and they ask Allah for his forgiveness. When you finish the Salah, every obligatory Salah was the first Vicar that you make a stop little law or stop federal law or stop federal law when the people of hedge make hedge and they finish from

alpha and they leave Allah says to them for Mirfield looming Hey so I found the nurse was takfeer Allah when you leave from alpha and you go to miss Danny for having completed

00:15:00--> 00:15:34

The main pillar of hedge now seek Allah's forgiveness. They just completed our offer in sha Allah, Allah just wiped away all of their sins. No, now you make yourself part of a large religion. And likewise now that you've done 20 odd nights of Ramadan, you've done the two thirds of this month, now is the time for you to redouble your efforts in terms of seeking forgiveness of Allah subhana wa tada milazzo nomikos from amongst those that he forgives and pardons barakallahu li walakum flock Ronnie was one of our newer younger female at LACMA Polka.

00:15:42--> 00:16:14

smilo from the de la salatu salam ala rasulillah while he was talking to a woman while I was a limited Sleeman kathira. It is because of the meanings that we've mentioned and the points that we've discussed that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, will put more time and effort in in these last 10 nights of Ramadan than any other time of the year. He would spend the whole night awake and that wasn't his mom, because the profit center would predict the AMA lane, but he would sleep a portion of the night. But in these 10 nights, he doesn't sleep. And he would do more in terms of acts of worship, and coming closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he would wake up his

00:16:14--> 00:16:47

family and ask them to spend the night awake with them. And he wouldn't do that often. Normally his wives would sleep and he would pray. Normally they wouldn't be asked or were awakened by the prophets of Allah while he was sitting him. But because of what is so precious during these last 10 nights, and that is the night of Ada to cuddle. With 1000 months of worship. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made it a ticker for the first 10 minutes of Ramadan because he didn't know when neither two other ones. So gvrd sam came to him at the end of the first night and he said continue making decaf because it wasn't in the first 10 nights so he made it to go for the middle 10 nights

00:16:47--> 00:17:22

of Ramadan Can you imagine? 20 nights of Ramadan already netted the gaff Jubilee comes to mind he said, No, still you haven't a teenager to Qatar continue in Attica. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made an article for the last 10 nights and then after that every year, he would only make it in the last two months of Ramadan. And that is why the position or the strongest position amongst the scholars of Islam and Allah knows best concerning related to the other is, is that it could be on any of the last 10 nights of Ramadan, and it changes from year to year, one years to 23rd. Perhaps one the 21st one the 27th only a large soldier knows and that is because

00:17:22--> 00:17:56

Allah subhanaw taala wants you to seek out Leila to cuddle because of how important it is. And so to spend these last few nights to Charlottetown at the beginning on Sunday, worshipping Allah azza wa jal reading Quran making surah making dua to Allah azza wa jal in particular with the daughter we just mentioned, in sha Allah wa Taala and is from the greatest acts of worship that you can perform in the hopes that Allah azza wa jal allows me a new to witness the night of data to other members of a large soldier with his most beautiful names that allows us to do so and that Allah subhanaw taala makes us from amongst those who worship Him and make dua to him on that night and that allows

00:17:56--> 00:18:26

pardons and forgives us raises our levels in Jannah that allows or increases our rewards and forgives our sins and that Allah subhanaw taala makes us from amongst those that he will emancipate from the fire of Allah Masha Allah Muhammad Ali Mohammed came also later on Ebrahim agua de Brahimi nicomedia Majeed, wa barakaatuh Muhammad Ali Mohammed Salah Ibrahim Ali Ibrahim al amin in naka hamidou Majeed supine aerobic Yamaguchi foon masala manoharan more serene, well hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen
