These last two nights of Ramadan that we're currently in from the most virtuous and superior nights of the year.
And all of that is to seek out one particular night from these 10 and that is the night of leader to cuddle. This night, the night of ADA tocado resolve virtuous, it has so much virtue and reward attached to it that Allah azza wa jal dedicated a whole chapter a whole Surah of the Quran to this very night in Anza. Now for you neither to cuddle will reveal this Quran and neither to the other. And that in itself is a virtue for this night. That the greatest of Allah's revelations, the last of his revelations to mankind, Allah azza wa jal chose the best night of the year, in order for its revelation to begin upon our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, well madaraka Merida to Ricardo,
and what will allow you to know the virtue of this night, the special status of this night, the reason for which all of us spend our nights a week in worship of Allah subhana wa Taala in prayer in Doha in the Quran, and recitation of the Quran to seek this one night. It is called a night of great virtue, because Allah azza wa jal says Lila to look at the Euro mean elfish it is a night that is better than 1000 months and night that is better than 1000 months. Some of the scholars of the self they used to see that if we didn't know what night it was, Allah didn't tell us that it's the last 10 nights of Ramadan. He just said that there is one night in the year. That is better in worship
than 1000 months in terms of its reward. We would spend every night of the year awake seeking out that one night because that's how virtuous that night is. Allah azza wa jal is telling you that you have on a single opportunity of one night the opportunity to earn the reward of 1000 months. If you did not know what your what your what night of the year it was, it would be worthwhile. It will be worth your time and effort to sacrifice your sleep, to spend the night to wake in
worship, but from Allah's mercy He told us and gave us a a general timeframe of when that might occurs. It is the Night of Decree, as Allah azza wa jal says 10 Zero melodica to
be is near a beam in Cooley Amara, this is the night that the angels of Allah including Jira, Allah, you send them the greatest of them. They descend by the command of Allah azza wa jal with the decree of the the decree for me a new that is in the local mifold the preserve tablet with Allah azza wa jal on a yearly basis, it descends onto the earth on the night of the little puddle, to the extent that ignore Abbas what the Allahu Anhu has said in the Tafseer of this verse, that there is no major thing, nor any minor thing, except that it is revealed to the earth on this year, to the extent that Allah azza wa jal will decree on this night, who from amongst us will make Hajj and who will do what
on this year. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the general practice of his was when there was a night like this, when it's days in which your actions are going to be raised to Allah subhanaw taala or nights in which the decree of Allah azza wa jal is going to descend upon the earth. He will spend a night in worship, because you want Allah azza wa jal to favor you in terms of what he decreased for you. You want Alonzo to preserve you from the hardships of this life and its calamities and trials, and you want Allah azza wa jal to open up his blessings, his fevers His Grace and Bounty upon you. So it is a worthwhile night of spending in worship. And
that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as we know us to make your a decaf. decaf is when you cut off every type of connection with the outside, outside world. You seclude yourself in the house of Allah to worship Allah to seek the night of Laila to cuddle. We today, brothers and sisters, we make a decaf in the last two nights of Ramadan. But before we knew that the little COVID was going to be in the last two nights of Ramadan, the prophets of Allah where it was cinemas in the hadith of Abu Saeed and Audrey Rhodiola. One, inside al Bukhari, he made them decaf for the first 10 nights of Ramadan. The first 10 nights of Ramadan he made it recap it decaf means you can't go home.
That decaf means that you can go and see your family at decaf means that you sleep and live in the masjid. All you do is worship Allah subhanaw taala the first 10 nights after the first 10 nights we're ending Jubilee Valley salaam kingdom and he said in the little booboo that what you're seeking or messenger of Allah, it is ahead of you. Meaning wasn't in the first 10 nights, so he made their ticker for the middle 10 of Ramadan. 20 days he's making
20 Nights pass and he's making a decaf. We have in this Masjid Al Hamdulillah number of brothers and sisters who are making the gaff, that in the third or fourth day of ethic athanor don't ask one of them. The amount of time and discipline and effort and patience it takes to make it a decaf for 345 10 Nights 20 Nights is making a decaf and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has Jubilee Valley salaam come to him one more time and he says in the lady dotloop whoo hoo ha mammoth that what you're seeking is still ahead of you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mixture decaf for the last 10 nights of Ramadan, a month of erotica. One month from the beginning of Ramadan
until the end, seeking this night of Allah subhanaw taala that is leader to other the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then told us seek out Lila to cuddle in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. And that is why it was therefore the practice of the wives of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions and the scholars who came after them. And every generation of Muslims from that time until today, we spent the last 10 nights of worship last month of Ramadan in the worship of Allah subhanho wa taala. The best form of worship in these last 10 Nights is to spend all 10 nights in worship, not to miss any of them not to pick or choose the odd nights over the even nights, but
to do all of the last night's of Ramadan. And that is because that is the safest way to know that you have a teenager to cuddle and that is why the prophets of Allah what He was sending with mica Attica, fall of the last 10 It has become a common mistake today, where people only focus on the odd nights and they neglect the even nights. And even though it is more likely to be on the odd nights more likely doesn't mean that it will be it just means that there's a greater chance there's a greater probability, but that's not a guarantee. So the people who want Allah's reward the people who seek forgiveness through this month, they don't let any of those nights go pass them or bypassed
by them with or without being in the worship of Allah subhanho wa taala. And that is because in those durations that specify the odd nights of Ramadan, some of them tell you to come from the beginning of the month. So 2123 2527 29 Those are the odd nights. Brother Norwegians tell you to count in reverse from the end of the month, in which case if the month is 30 nights, the odd mites or even mites, they're not on anymore. The Prophet said sal Allahu Allah. He was sending me the Hadith seek out later two or three nights before
A month ends five nights before he lends seven nights before it ends. If the month is 30 Nights was three nights before that 3029 28. Five Nights becomes 26. Seven Nights becomes 24. And that's when some of the scholars of the Center for the position from the nicer is likely to be later to the other is the 24th night of Ramadan. Allah azza wa jal says in this surah in nuns and now for you either to coddle you reveal the Quran to you on the night of other according to many of the scholars of Islam that night in that year that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam first received revelation of the Quran was the 24th night of Ramadan, not on at night, and even meant, and so that
is why the scholars of Islam used to say seek out all 10 nights in the worship of Allah subhana wa Tada. But those people who can't you have a genuine excuse, you have family commitments, you have jobs, you have certain things that prevents you from seeking out all 10 Nights, then for you, we say, take those other nights, you can't do all 10 Take the odd nights take 2123 2527 20 night, and you can't do all five of those, then take the last four of them 2325 2729 Because some ration said Seek around in the last seven nights of Ramadan. And you can't even do one of those you can only do one night in the whole month of Ramadan, then seek out the 27th because that was the position of
many of the scholars of Islam. But that's for those people the odd few from amongst us who can't do more than that the circumstances don't allow it before everyone else. It is seriously recommended and encouraged that you spend that whole night in the worship of Allah subhanaw taala all of those 10 nights of Ramadan, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in these nights, he would do what he didn't do in the rest of the year. And he would go to a level of worship and a level of effort that you wouldn't see from him Sal, Allahu Allah, He will send him throughout the remainder of the year, he will wake up his family and ask them to stay awake. And that wasn't his norm wasn't his norm. He
would often pray the night prayer and his wives will be sleeping. But in these last 10 nights, he would wake them up and he will spend the whole of the night awake is normal practice and tahajjud was that he would restful part of the night playful part of the night. But in these last two nights, you wouldn't sleep. You would spend them in the worship of Allah azza wa jal, and the worship that he would do is that he would play sunnah. And he would recite Quran, and he would make dua to Allah subhanaw taala those are the three primary forms of worship that he did. And that's what the seller for upon. And so the best thing that you can engage on in these nights is those three acts of
worship more than anything else you don't have in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu that he was telling us to specify these nights for charity that he was known to give excess charity because it's nighttime and you will do so will feed the poor do anything else you will spend these nights in these three acts of worship Salah Quran do and the best of them is Sunnah, because it includes the other two, the prophets on Allah where he was sitting encouraged his Alma to seek out these nights, none of us with all of our sins and all of our mistakes and all of our shortcomings, none of us is in the position to allow these guys these nice to pass us by without putting in that extra time and
effort. You need to rest for a certain part of the night because you have work, you have studies you have school, then rest, but don't let the whole night pass you by premium as much of it as you can manage your situation, move your commitments do what you need to do in order to be able to attain the reward of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. We have a number of these nights the left tonight will be the 24th night that some of the scholars considered to be able to further whatever that night is, and it changes every year, as is the position of many of the scholars of Islam. It is not stable upon one date, but it switches every single year. Because you have so many different durations of the
companions when you gather them. That's the conclusion that you reach every year in may be a different night. Don't let any of those nights go by you without you showing to Allah subhanaw taala that you are deserving of his of his forgiveness and of His mercy, because these are nights in which Allah azza wa jal emancipates and flees people from the fire. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala on the specific day of Friday, in the explicit month of Ramadan, hoping and seeking out later to other that Allah azza wa jal mixes from amongst those people who will be made haram upon the fire, that Allah azza wa jal saves us and our parents and our families and all those that we love and one of the
Muslims from the punishment of the Fire Rescue Allah azza wa jal that he shows his mercy and forgiveness upon us that he makes us from amongst those people who stood in this month and fasted in this month, point in this month, in a way that is pleasing to Him and that he forgives us for all of our past sins.

From the engineering and math bank, as we come towards the end of this month of Ramadan, this opportunity that Allah azza wa jal gives, there is a limited number of days a Yama Magu that a limited number of days and we're fast approaching the end of those days is the time to redouble your efforts. We double your efforts in terms of worship, in terms of seeking Allah subhanaw taala has forgiveness and repentance from the greatest acts of worship that you can perform in these last 10 nights in your Salah and in your DUA is to ask Allah azza wa jal for his forgiveness, to repent to Him. subhanho wa Taala and repentance is from the most beloved of beings to Allah azza wa jal and
that is why when I shot the Allahu anhu, the most beloved of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked the Prophet sallahu wa salam, O Messenger of Allah, if there was a dua that I was going to make the leader to further what to actually make, for more of the things he could have advised her for more of the things that he could have told her to focus on her health, her wealth, her steadfastness, whatever it may be so many things he could have chosen. The one aspect that he told her to focus on is to seek Allah's pardon forgiveness, see, or insha Allah who made the guy fool when funny. This is the night in which you asked for these other nights in which you asked for
Allah's pardon and for His forgiveness Subhana wa Tada and from the acts of worship, that we have to be mindful of and be diligent regarding to is the cattle fatal, is a cattle fatal is coming up very close to us now. The class to three days of Ramadan, you start giving us the cattle fatal in the hadith of Ibn Ahmadi Allah, one woman said, Follow the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a cattle fitter, so I'm intending or sorry, I'm in Sharia. Allah couldn't be holding our Ogden record in one Samuel Muslimeen the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam obligated to the cattle and fit them in food. The amount that he told us sort of detour of wheat upon every single Muslim, male or female
adult or child, whether you fast it will you didn't fast, whether your child is three to one, or whether they're an adult, whoever they are, every single Muslim must give us a cattle filter to the extent that some of the companions are with mammal the Allahu unbeliever of the position, that the child in the womb of the mother that's yet to be born, you should give us the cattle fitted upon that child as well. And so it is from the obligations that Allah azza wa jal has placed upon us. Some people, not everyone has to give Zika because of their circumstances, but the cattle fatal unless you're very poor and you're unable to do so. It is something which every Muslim should do,
because it is from that which purifies the mistakes that you made in this Ramadan purifies the shortcomings that you had in this specific month. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala on this blessed day and in this blessed month that Allah azza wa jal eases our affairs for us, and that Allah subhanaw taala accepts our worship from us. And Allah azza wa jal allows us to witness many moments of Ramadan, that Allah subhanaw taala does not the private from the deprive us of these opportunities of reward. These opportunities of worship is opportunity of seeking forgiveness and repenting Tim Subhana wa Tada and that Allah azza wa jal looks upon us and shows his pleasure upon
us. And with that pleasure, his forgiveness and His mercy and the highest of His rewards. Subhanallah Rabi crop Larissa Dr. miles the phone was turned on when Harlan was serene and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen
