00:00:06--> 00:00:11

Mila Smith said I'm only Kumar mental ly you want to care too

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

start in Sharla few seconds from shell layer it's time to start

00:00:35--> 00:01:16

this Monday rambling now so that was cinema I know somebody who either early he or so heavy I send them a bomb I didn't know my info now when you mount a limiter now is it not even on but I mean, alarm. I know I know the critical issue critical sneer balletic alarm have to worry about a hermetic, or in an automatic auto. But I mean, beginning as always with praising Allah xodus panel what the honor and seeking His guidance and protection and seeking his offer in this month of Rama and mercy and seeking his assistance, because without his assistance, will be unable to do anything without him subhana wa tada

00:01:17--> 00:01:40

sending Salaam Salaam upon His Messenger sallallahu early, you're sending them the teacher, the guide, the messenger, the prophet, asking Allah as them to reward him for everything that he had taught, and to make us able and willing to lovingly follow him, so the law and he was in them in this dunya. And to be with him in the afia mean,

00:01:41--> 00:02:06

asked him Subhana Allah to accept all that we do that in Ramadan, all the good that we do, and to open the doors of righteousness for all of us the doors of thought the doors of worship, and to protect us And forgive us from our own weaknesses, our own sins and our own Miss guidances our own things that we do that when we stray from Allah as

00:02:07--> 00:02:11

the protectors from the shavon I mean, but I mean,

00:02:12--> 00:02:26

so today's topic insha Allah is a specific topic, a special topic that breaks the sequence, but it's still within the spirit of Ramadan motivations, which is the last 10 of Ramadan?

00:02:27--> 00:02:46

What are they and how to get ready for them? And specifically, how is it that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam used to observe those nights and maybe perhaps also through all of this, how is it that we can get motivated to be able to do more? So again, insha Allah by saying

00:02:47--> 00:03:02

that these nights known very well to us right now we know how many Ramadan's have we witnessed and fasted and all we know that these are special nights and days, and the nights are more special than the days

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

and when that nasty nights of Ramadan would come, the prophet SAW Allah and he was sitting them would do something different and extra,

00:03:12--> 00:03:24

unlike the rest of the month, and unlike outside of Ramadan, so these Knights stand above the rest of the year and stand above the rest of Ramadan itself.

00:03:26--> 00:03:57

So they said about himself Allah hottie who was in them can either the Hanalei shrewish the head, man, he stayed up late, he says, When the night or the last night of Ramadan would come, the last 10 of Ramadan would come, the prophets on Islam would strive would exert himself more than other times. Yesterday he melief de VEDA he would exert himself and strive more than other times, so the primatologist would push himself when the last 10 of Ramadan would come.

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

So that means that there's something special about them and we know what is special about them related to cancer is there. A laser cutter is there and it's a hidden night and we'll talk about lasers we'll put that in sha Allah the last part of today's talk that leaders will posit is hidden that's why what the last night our last 10 nights of Ramadan I'm having trouble same last 10 nights of Ramadan anyway. So what they do in sha Allah is that we exert ourselves we put more of our effort into them trying to seek this night that is hidden, we don't know what night it is. So we try and in doing all of this, we achieve a result that Allah azza wa jal wants from that from us and that is

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

inshallah gonna become apparent again at the end of this talk we have so let's go back to that. To those nights. What are the profits all of a sudden we used to do, can either the huddle a shoe, when that Knights would come? Those last night would come can either headed I shovel or Jacobo

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

He would wake his family up

00:05:03--> 00:05:09

okay, where should they visa and he would tighten his his up the lower garment

00:05:10--> 00:05:20

widget and he would be diligent he would be striving and is a better worker here a leader, and he would live in the night.

00:05:22--> 00:05:30

So let's go and dissect this this statement and see one by one. What does the What does all these things mean? Miss Mila

00:05:32--> 00:05:39

can either the Knights would pick in when will that last 10 nights of that Ramadan begin What do they begin?

00:05:40--> 00:06:15

They begin with the night of the 21st of Ramadan. So for us, this will be Sunday night. right for us. This will be Sunday night so they begin with the night of the 21st of Ramadan. And we know very well I hope insha Allah that the nights in Islam they precede the days. So the 21st day of Ramadan when is it's night before or after? say of course the night is before it. So for us that would be what Sunday night. Now why do we Why do we say that? It's the night of the 21st? Not the night of the 20th?

00:06:16--> 00:06:20

Because some people may think okay, if Ramadan is only 29

00:06:21--> 00:06:28

and you can't last 10 from the 29th you're going to get into the 20th. So we should include the 20th into

00:06:29--> 00:06:45

the last time we say no, it's from the 21st two eggs exactly from the 21st Why is it it's because first the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in one Hadith he made that he got in the first 10 nights of Ramadan.

00:06:47--> 00:06:57

Then he made that ticket the same month then he made I think in that second the middle 10 nights of Ramadan when he was about to leave on the 20th day

00:06:58--> 00:07:23

he came back and he said you know mo he turned to this hub and he said that you breed Allah he said I'm came to me and he said that little cursor is in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. So whoever would like to continue in Attica would me continue in Attica. And I was seeing what I was shown that I will be making prostration in that night at the at its end in mud.

00:07:24--> 00:07:42

So the Prophet continued his attic calf, and on the night of the 21st of Ramadan, it rained, and the ceiling of the masjid fell. And that ground or the message was muddy. So the Sahaba said I saw the messenger so a lot he was in the leaving so that will fit in with mud on his face.

00:07:44--> 00:08:14

So this head he tells you what it tells you really a lot if you think about first of all in the beginning that the no one leads to a cut there was no they did not it was to them, all of Ramadan in the beginning. So the prophets and all he was send them the dirty calf, the first 10 and then the second term. And then he went into the third term meaning all of Ramadan was Attica for him. Right? That's the plan, all of Ramadan was at the gap, at least what he did 21st days of Ramadan in a teacup in the masjid.

00:08:15--> 00:09:00

Later on, he wouldn't do this because he never was now he knows that plato's closet is the last 10 not in the middle or the first step. So that's one one benefit. The second benefit is that the middle 10 include the 20th of Ramadan, right. And he was about to leave. When he resumed his Attica, he resumed ethica for the last one of Ramadan with the 21st. And so later on when he would go into his epi curve, he goes into his ft calf, beginning with the 21st of Ramadan. So that's where it begins. That's when he first so that the 100 shrew in the last 10 would come. That means with the 21st Okay, what does he do so a lot he was an alum, first Iacocca and he would wake his family up.

00:09:01--> 00:09:05

Meaning it's not only his own personal labor, but his wife and his kids.

00:09:06--> 00:09:48

And he says his daughters and then their husbands wake wake up for sada so here is a motivation. And there is a lesson that you inspire your family as well to do as much as they can without pushing them to the limit. But inspire them to do what they can you remind them the nights of Ramadan are going about to end the last 10 have arrived, tried to do try to do this, try to do that wake up for your set out to motivate, inspire. So that's something to keep in mind. It's not just me while everybody is asleep and they don't really care about this month, but try to involve as many people as possible within your family again without overstepping or pushing them to the limit beyond what

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

they can tolerate. Maybe you can pray most of the night maybe they can only pray one hour or so. Don't push them beyond what they can do. Push them within the limits insha Allah within what you understand is

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

possible for them. So Allah Allah The second thing is should the visa shuttle me is on here is tightened his lower garments. Some scholars have said it means that he stays away from his wives meaning from being intimate with them during the night to save more time for a bother other scholars said that means what? To be more diligent, more focused, like if you'd like tighten the belt to mean that I'm ready for work now. Roll up your sleeves to mean that I'm ready for hard work right now. That's what it means Allahu Allah. Agenda be diligent and striving here leader. He would enliven his night with evader

00:10:43--> 00:10:49

now what does it mean in life in his night with a bada? Does it mean that he prayed the whole night?

00:10:50--> 00:11:20

Meaning his Salah his tm was the whole night or was it most of the night. Scholars have said it's possible that it had meant most of the night because if you enliven your, your night with Salah most of the night, it could be said that you've prayed all of the night. Maybe there's a Heidi that could tell us in sha Allah, the extent of the profits a better and could inspire is also right. So in an authentic hadith,

00:11:21--> 00:11:58

they said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not lead us MTM for most of the month, until that what had remained from the month or seven days, what had remained worse seven days of the month, on the seventh and date, which by that they mean the 23rd of Ramadan. So I'm just going to use the dates now. Not their terminology, I'll use the dates because it's easier for us. So they say on the 23rd of Ramadan, he goes and he leads us inside out until 1/3 of the night had passed. And then he gives salon and he concludes this silo.

00:11:59--> 00:12:06

Then on the 24th, he does not come out 4pm for us, meaning he does it on his own individually.

00:12:07--> 00:12:37

On the 25th he comes out and he leaves us MPR until half of the night we reach half of the night. And he concludes this saga. So once the hobby asks him and tells him all messenger of Allah, could you not continue beyond that, maybe till the end of the night. And he said so a lot he was saying something that is beautiful. He said that if you pray with the Imam until the Imam is done, it will be written for you as if you prayed the whole night.

00:12:38--> 00:13:16

That is if you're praying in JAMA, clear mortal are we in domestic typically right if that is available for any, any any of you. And you conclude with the email until the members done, it will be written for you as if you have framed the whole night. Meaning he's telling that's a hobby I don't need to do the whole night, it'd be written for you as if you've done the whole night. So on the 26th, he doesn't come out to leave them inside out on the 27th he comes out so a lot he was sitting with his family and he leaves them inside out. And he leaves them in Salah until most of the night had passed. And they were afraid that they will not have an opportunity to eat the meal of

00:13:16--> 00:13:22

support. So that tells you that from Africa or Asia till close to failure.

00:13:23--> 00:14:03

But still there was time for support and they didn't miss that meal, but close to failure. That's on the 27th and then he doesn't come out on the 28th or on the 29th. I mean he prayed on his own civil law I knew it was him and he was also afraid that this would become an obligation of all Muslims unite in sada at his time, the law could make it an obligation on Muslims and he was afraid that if that would happen, we would not be able to carry this out as average Muslims right maybe hundreds and 1000s of years after his death. So a lot he was sitting so he didn't do it. So it just tells you about the extent of the worship of the prophets of Allah Allah you earn he was in them. So in live

00:14:03--> 00:14:16

in his night with a brother could mean that he spent a lot of it inside out but not necessarily all of it inside out. So if I am not praying the whole night, inside out, what do I do?

00:14:18--> 00:14:33

So what should might be better look like in the nights of Ramadan, especially the last 10 nights of Ramadan? Well, it will look similar to the Torah. We are not the end they choose to use to pray throughout the month.

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

It will look similar to that but it could be longer that if you have the desire and the ability in sha Allah to do so if you have the time, you would lengthen your son out. So what you can do in sha Allah and you have options. You could stay up the whole night. It doesn't mean praying the whole night, but you can stay up the whole night doing what one is set up. So you can start praying right after Isha. So you pray

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

Russia you pray your sooner and you're the young can start you can pray a truck as then you can pray all your pm then if you wish, or you can divide it and pray some after Asia some of the last third of the night. Or if you're really really strong lucky and that is difficult I understand you can start your site after Isha and go all the way till the middle of the night all the way till the last third of the night. I don't really imagine that most of us can do this. So what we can do and what is reasonable for us in sha Allah is you can divide your Salah you start after Isha, you pray to Rockers, and you can make them long as long as you want. And then you sit and relax a little bit,

00:15:42--> 00:15:54

inshallah relax doing what you can eat a little bit, you can drink, you can do some dhikr of Allah xojo you can do some Quran, you can do some disappear, you can do some Eva,

00:15:55--> 00:16:02

then when you get regained your strength, you can go back and you're free to more and they can be long if you wish, that's just one scenario.

00:16:03--> 00:16:29

And then after you finish them, you could sit down and shut a lot and then you can do the same, you can do more or you can do more thicker, you can do more Gulf allies again, you can eat a little bit you can drink a little bit just to regain your strength and you can continue like that. Or you can pray those two guys one two rockers and then just relax a little bit and then tour occurs and then relax and have a lengthy session of reading of all

00:16:31--> 00:17:03

of the of the group Allah has his origin. Then again, an alternate between evaders if you start your day and then after some time you get tired, go into the queue. You go into the group, Allah surgeon and your mind starts to stray and you want to move into something else. Go into reading of the Quran, you pass an area and you that intrigues you What is this? I mean, what is it about and you have a deep sea of and you have a translation, go and consult with FCM the translation and

00:17:06--> 00:17:07

study the Quran,

00:17:08--> 00:17:24

you feel like you have a book of sunar book of Hadith and you feel like yeah, I want to just read some of the Hadith of the prophets, a lot of you said and that's also about a read some of that, then when you have insha Allah, you feel refreshed, you can go back to your son out.

00:17:26--> 00:18:07

So inshallah try a mix of all of that enlivening the night with a bar. That means that all sorts of Eva that includes solar in it, but also include to include Vicar include for our, if you need to talk to your family a little bit, if you need to take care of your kids a little bit, that's all permissible in Sharla it's it doesn't mean that you need to boycott everyday everybody and isolate yourself completely, thinking that every single second because we also don't want to be too anxious, every single second and every single minute has to be taken advantage of otherwise, you know, I wasted the night nobody should ever talk to me, nobody should ever, you know, want anything from me

00:18:07--> 00:18:44

that moderation and balance are needed. And even at the time of is FDA Gov. So a lot of you it was send them you know, some of his wives would come and talk to him. And then he would go out and he would send her back to her whole so it means that not every single minute of every single second was used in anybody as a human being so probably you need to interact with other human beings. You need a little bit of relaxation, you need to go to the washroom you need to do you need just relax a little bit you need to eat a little bit, that's all permissible. But what it means is that most of the night inshallah or at least that it is registered that I've done that I've tried that I've

00:18:44--> 00:18:49

prayed that I read that I made, do, I've done something okay.

00:18:54--> 00:19:03

So what carriers can we do to allow the additional select this is all clear on what do we call it thoroughly haltia this is all we have here is the same size.

00:19:04--> 00:19:23

And the best is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did, which is 11 broadcasts. Some scholars allow more than that. But you know you we know that the prophet SAW to send them in Ramadan and outside Ramadan he prayed what you love in broadcast, but the way that he prayed them sallallahu wasallam is that he took time with them.

00:19:24--> 00:19:59

And again Subhana Allah I mean just understand your own abilities so that you can match what he did so a lot he was selling to the best of your ability. The seller of the prophet SAW the cinema and he would read the he would read it but with contemplation he would ponder he would be quiet with his meaning slower with his recitation. He would understand what he's reading if he passes, or reads an eye about Jenna Hill ask Allah for Jenna. If we would read an area about Hellfire he would seek Allah's refuge from hellfire. he interacts with the arm and then when he goes into Luke

00:20:00--> 00:20:33

He spends time in Israel court when he goes into his suit, he'll spend time in his suit, he gives his soul his body time to ask Allah Zoda to glorify Allah. So he's moving between between these different positions in Salah in comfort slowly, deliberately and consciously. So it takes time for all of that. And that Subhanallah brings relaxation and comfort when you're doing your setup. Now, maybe you as maybe you and I cannot stand for a long time, you can sit,

00:20:34--> 00:20:44

you can start standing, then you can sit while reading the Quran, and then you can stand up again and then you can sit the Prophet solo, he said when he got older, he would sit down in his dm, by the way.

00:20:46--> 00:20:50

Without facade, he said that when he got older, at times, he would begin his soda standing.

00:20:52--> 00:20:53

And then he would sit.

00:20:54--> 00:21:36

And then when it's time for record, he would stand up and do his record. And other times when he would be tired, he would be sick or he got even older, he would spray at night, stand sitting down. So that is available for all of us. right that's available so you don't at the same time have to push yourself so much that your back starts aching and Subhanallah the next day you're having trouble fasting and the next time you can even stand to pray, you don't want that you will need the moderation that takes into account what you can do and also spreads out this is better because we want to be praying throughout all the nights of Ramadan. So hamdulillah I hope that we've explained

00:21:36--> 00:22:17

that we have a variety of data and we can insha Allah filled the nights of Ramadan with all of that and even if you need to sleep and wake up, that's also fine inshallah, if you pray, then you need to sleep for an hour or so or two hours and so and then wake up and pray again, if that is what is most suitable for your heart and body you can concentrate without doing this. Then what we want is maximum concentration, maximum desire to worship Allah azza wa jal not a person who is worshiping Allah and he hates what he's doing half asleep, does not know what he's saying and doing. Right. So again, in shall, what's the quality of about accounts as well, right? So what night Should I

00:22:17--> 00:22:35

concentrate on the most? So if I begin with the 21st? What nice Should I concentrate on the most or most ideally, we want to worship Allah zodac throughout the nights of Ramadan, when more concentrations on the odd nights of Ramadan without excluding that even nights.

00:22:37--> 00:23:11

Okay, so concentrate give more attention to the odd nights 21st 23rd 25th 27th and the 29th without forgetting about the even nights. Now some of us what we do is we think that later to Qatar is only an exclusively on the 27th night of Ramadan. So you see in the messages, how many times you've seen it, that people don't come to the rescue this often in the last day, or they increase the frequency, but on the 27th the mystery of this pact,

00:23:12--> 00:23:16

the 27th the messages back because there's this belief that

00:23:17--> 00:23:18

that's level two.

00:23:20--> 00:24:04

And some of the messages they enhanced this belief by you know, doing Huffman code on the 27th. So everybody's coming on the 27th 28th to 29th. They think that it's over all done is done. No, no, not that's not true at all, later to cut the moves beyond when I'm beyond between those odd nights, because we have a headache. From the profits a lot to sell them when Laila to cuddle and recorded that headache was on the 21st over a MOBA. It's an authentic Heidi. So if you only think that later to the quarter is on the 27th then you will miss it, you would have missed it. But it moves between the odd nights of Ramadan so the prophets A lot of you send them here but then as a reason it's me

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

suha Phil, actually our altar even seek it in the last 10 nights of Ramadan in the odd nights of them.

00:24:14--> 00:25:00

And some scholars have said even that, even Knights should be considered, even though even Knights should be considered why they have a reasoning for it. Because according to one Hadith of the prophets a lot he was sent him in the way that he explained when to seek it. They said if the night of the month of Ramadan is 29 it's possible that level two could fall on an even night. So our approach should be insha Allah not wait for the 27th and only then I'll make dua and worship Allah, not only on the 20th and the 21st and 23rd and 25th 2729 No, I'll try all the nights of Ramadan, but more attention. More a better more effort according to the Hadith comes on the 21st 23rd 25th 20

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

The seventh and when 27th come Don't think that I'm done Do you still have the 29th

00:25:06--> 00:25:13

who knows maybe they'd have to cover this this month this year is on the 29th of Ramadan. So insha Allah try your best throughout.

00:25:15--> 00:25:19

So these are the last 10 nights of Ramadan

00:25:20--> 00:25:36

and the prophets Allah allow us to do most his most his best with these nights with come okay seeking what we simply that okay. So what is special about clay that will cut it was understand that what we would do we get from it and why is it hidden?

00:25:37--> 00:25:49

So Allah azza wa jal revealed an entire surah about clinging to COVID all of us memorize that in nuns are now feeling that we have revealed it in a natural color with what

00:25:50--> 00:25:54

revealed the Koran. So the Quran comes down

00:25:55--> 00:26:27

or came down in a little country. And that is an honor for that night. And Allah chose this specific night because of the Baraka that is in it, because I was special it is so if you know that humanity's guidance, the guidance that you and I have that has changed all of our lives, that will take us to dinner came on that night, you'll understand that was special that night is it descended, came to the Mohammed Salah hottie or send them to the heart of Mohammed to the tongue of Mohammed and then to our hearts and tongues on that night.

00:26:28--> 00:26:31

So that's a very special night in the envelope you needed to

00:26:33--> 00:26:37

what else came down or comes down in a little cut?

00:26:39--> 00:26:44

Allah as it says in other surah fi how you for a poco ambrane hacking

00:26:45--> 00:26:52

in it or on it, every decreed matter is sent down is recorded and is clarified.

00:26:54--> 00:27:17

It means that Allah has decreed what is going to happen to all of us long time ago before it has happened. On the little cousin, it gets what it gets copied from the preserved tablets and sent down to earth. And the angels read it and know what's in it and understand what's going to happen to you and me from now till the next year.

00:27:18--> 00:27:49

So if rokoko amarin high came, it gets clarified and sent down from above to this earth. So also our decrees are being sent down and the angels are aware of what's going to happen to you and me who's going to live who's going to die, it's written it is sent down and it's spread out among the angels. That's another thing that happens on that night. Another thing that is momentous that is important that happens. A third thing that happens in it as a lot as it says in that sort of luck on Monday that will cut the leader to cadre

00:27:51--> 00:28:00

what will make you known understand the gravity the importance of leaders will come later to occur is more important and it's better than 1000 months.

00:28:02--> 00:28:04

So Allah zoodle had made one single night.

00:28:06--> 00:28:24

One single night better than 1000 months they if you in calculations they say 83 years more than 83 three years. So if Allah zildjian enables you and me to do something good on that night, it will be as if we have done it for more than 83 years. Salah and it's accepted

00:28:25--> 00:29:09

more than 83 years of Sunnah are on and it's accepted more than 83 years of reciting the Quran. There are more than 83 years of Vicar more than 83 years of the Quran Allah zildjian just for that one night just for those few hours from Asia. Okay, mother is included in terms of yeah you can do is still a summary better for mother Asia. But most of it the bulk of it is coming from Asia to fetch it for those few hours. If you can push yourself if you can just strive a little bit more then for those few hours if you do it it'd be as if you didn't did it for more than 83 years. And that is part of the mercy of Allah zodion and the blessings in the month of Ramadan and the last 10 nights

00:29:09--> 00:29:26

of Ramadan. A little bit of work could translate into more than a lifetime of a better and rewards from a loss more than a lifetime. Because even if we live for till 90 we will not get 83 years of a better but for that one night we can

00:29:28--> 00:29:56

fade woman Alfie shorten Azuma eager to roofie her Bay is nearer to him in coolum. Allah azza wa jal says that the angels descend and you breathe and he said I'm descends with the permission of Allah azza wa jal descending with what descending with Allah's mercy, Baraka forgiveness and decrees. So they're coming down with Allah's decrees what's going to happen to all of us, and when they come down, they come down with a With what? Baraka

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

they come down with forgiveness.

00:30:00--> 00:30:16

They come down with mercy that's what the angels carry with them. And the messenger sallallahu I knew who it was in them said that they are so plentiful that angels are so plentiful that they are more than the number of pebbles small pebbles on earth on that night

00:30:18--> 00:30:32

that we're talking about multitudes and multitudes of angels will tie knots about talking about only hundreds. We're not talking about 1000s we're talking about millions and millions of angels descending on this earth on that night.

00:30:33--> 00:30:41

Millions of angels with them up on a sinner. So understand that your brief does not descend for any occasion.

00:30:42--> 00:30:45

Yes, he used to descend when Mohammed Salah Lottie was sitting was alive

00:30:46--> 00:31:25

to give him this this revelation to speak to him some a lot he was sitting in Ramadan every single night he used to come down and speak and then recall Mohammed Salah Lord he was sitting but you believe this just does not descend for any occasion on later to Qatar he comes down so this is a really special night for the for a bad for Allah Rama for freedom from hellfire. So now when he had them apply in federal it is a Salaam and I have said I'm free from free from harm free from Allah's anger free from sin. Free from evil. Till done. Tilda Salam here.

00:31:27--> 00:31:35

So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says about cleaver to cutter describing it, the signs of it, what does it look like?

00:31:36--> 00:31:49

And we're going to talk in Sharla about how to wait or not to wait for later to cutter anyway, or how to identify and not identify later but anyway, he says about it. In the heyday, the tune somehow can tell it's a comfortable easy night.

00:31:50--> 00:32:12

And easy night comfortable name. La how Ratan whenever he does, it's not hot, and it's not cold. Meaning relative to your own climate at this time, it's not hot, and it's not cold belgica illite night, a lit night there's light in it's as more light than previous nights. Okay.

00:32:13--> 00:32:28

To see her film, Su sub he had to her her bra etha then the sun when it rises at the end of that night, it rises week reddish so so weak sunrise.

00:32:29--> 00:33:11

So he describes this nights a lot in cinema as being an easy comfortable night that is not it's a moderate night. It's a pleasant night. It's a late night and the sun when it dries it rises out what a weak sunrise. These are some signs related to cut. Now with a little cut Suppan Allah the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said about is something that he said about the entire month of fasting and the entire qiyamah of Ramadan and Ramadan amen and yT mahkamah nega Takada email and YT server, we've got Allahumma to put them in them be if you pray Leila to cuddle amen and YT server, your previous sins will be forgiven. He said the same statement about fasting the month of Ramadan and the same

00:33:11--> 00:33:21

statement about praying the whole over the month of Ramadan. So if while you knew, maybe did not have the opportunity did not have the

00:33:23--> 00:33:24

the strength?

00:33:25--> 00:34:09

Right, the physical ability, right? psychologically, we're not really there to do pm of the rest of the month of Ramadan, or most of the month of Ramadan, I still Subhanallah have this opportunity. Right? That I can if I really put my effort I concentrate in the last 10 of Ramadan, that I can witness later to Qatar and for Allah accepts it. And if I'm doing this, amen and YT sir, but I'm doing it because I believe in Allah zoldan and following his messenger sallallahu cinnamon, I want to reward me and take away my sins. that one that one single night. Allah can take away The sins of my past here just for that one night. But the thing here and the challenge here is that I do not

00:34:09--> 00:34:10

know which night that that is.

00:34:12--> 00:34:12

It's hidden.

00:34:14--> 00:34:59

It's hidden, even with those signs that the province auto send them has said it's not really definitive. I may think it's a moderate night somebody else may think it's an another night. So what I hear in Sharla, what I want to caution all of us against is the following way one, do not try to predict later to cause it before it happens. And don't listen to predictions. They will will only discourage you from what worshipping Allah throughout all the nights of last not 10 nights of Ramadan. So don't listen to predictions. Somebody says says I saw a dream. It's going to be on the 23rd. Somebody saw something and it's going to be on the 27th. They did whatever type of calculation

00:35:00--> 00:35:39

It's going to be on the 25th. Don't listen to any of these things. Allah hid little cousin and it's going to remain hidden. No one for sure is going to know what side is going to be on knowing. So inshallah, let's ignore all of these predictions even if they come from someone you think they're knowledgeable and this and that good for them if they think that it is, but it doesn't mean that it is. The prophets a lot in cinemas giving you the best guidance on when little odd is going to be that odd nights of Ramadan. The Odd last nights of Ramadan, focus on that, if you do this, for sure you get a calculator to cut the Bismillah zildjian second, don't listen to someone who says leisure

00:35:39--> 00:35:42

to Qatar was last night was two nights ago.

00:35:43--> 00:35:48

That too, don't listen to. Because if you listen to it, that will discourage you.

00:35:49--> 00:35:57

You'll think it's done. It's over. I don't need to worship anymore. And if that person is wrong, you will miss lead to conduct that is yet to come.

00:35:58--> 00:36:01

So don't listen to that as well. What if they are wrong?

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

What if they are mistaken?

00:36:06--> 00:36:25

So again, the guidance of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave the best guidance. He has the best guidance He did not say for that night, just go outside. And then look, is the night cold or hot? If it's too hot means it's not later to cut. What if you're wrong? What if your assessment is wrong?

00:36:26--> 00:37:09

Or tonight Tonight, it's a dark night. It's not doing that? What have your mid assessment is wrong? What if you discover at the end of that night's a panel? No, that was my night and I missed it. So no one who really understands the value of lynda.com is going to base it on specific science before later to call or specific predictions, they'll base it on what is definitive, and what is definitive is the odd nights, I'm going to concentrate without also neglecting the even nights, that will mean I will catch it insha Allah because if the prize is so precious, you're gonna cannot get a gamble that it may you may lose it just based on someone's prediction somewhat on a sign that you may have

00:37:09--> 00:37:36

gotten or may have missed. Ignore all of this. And just stick to what we know for sure. And what we know for sure is the last 10 the odd nights among them, concentrate on that. And when the evening nights come, don't just relax and say I'm not praying, I'm not reading put on I'm not making No, let's not do this. If you want to take it as if you want to you know decrease your event a little bit just so that you would be motivated for the next

00:37:37--> 00:38:04

odd night you can go ahead and do this. But don't empty that night of all a better because it's also a potential night for labor to cut. So if you can do things there, you should, if you can pray you should if you can reach out and you should, and normally be empty of all a better, right? And this way insha Allah if you are praying all those nights and reading Quran, and doing more insha Allah you'll catch later to cut. Now

00:38:06--> 00:38:08

why did Allah have to hide it?

00:38:09--> 00:38:45

And of course a lot of that didn't have every right to hide it would not we're not questioning Allah xuejun. But do you think about why is it that Allah has noted the hidden layers? of other words? Wouldn't it be easier for him to say to us, it's on the 27th. And that is it. And we know for sure that it's going to be on the 27th it's on the 25th. Or that each year it's you know, it moves. So this year, it's the 20/21 the next the 23rd The next is 26. It moves. And so we know it's gonna be isn't it easier for all of us? So if you think about it, why is it that a lot of the hit that night? So we do not know?

00:38:46--> 00:38:50

Why is it that? What is it that a low on it from that?

00:38:51--> 00:38:54

Now we think about it's kind of like if you had a child

00:38:55--> 00:39:03

and you wanted that child to study for an exam, and you want them to study every single night before that exam.

00:39:04--> 00:39:10

And so you said to that child on one of those nights, if I catch you studying,

00:39:11--> 00:39:17

I'm going to give you a gift that you always wanted. I'm not going to tell you which night one of those nights.

00:39:18--> 00:39:24

But I'm going to be a surprise but it has to be one of those nights and I'm going to give you a gift of your study.

00:39:25--> 00:39:27

What is your intent when you do this?

00:39:29--> 00:39:37

Is your intention for him to simply study on one night or is your intent for him to study every single night to be ready for that exam.

00:39:39--> 00:39:51

So Allah zildjian wants us by hiding later on to do something that is beyond later to cut as precious as Linda Takada is and it's really the most precious Night of the entire year.

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

Okay, the most precious and the best night of the whole year is this night. You're not going to encounter

00:40:00--> 00:40:19

The rest of the year a night that is better than this night. But Allah also wants from this night, something that is better than all of this, which is what for you to develop a better into a habit for you to worship Allah every single night for you to ask him every single night for you to be close to him every single night. And for that he gives you later to,

00:40:21--> 00:41:02

if you try to guess when it's going to be, you're not going to be able to, if you're not going to only worship Allah on a single night, you're not going to be able to catch later, every single year. If you worship him every night of the 10, you'll catch it. That is what Allah wants you to connect with him every single night. And to be close to him every single night. And then you get it then evaluate becomes something that you love that you like, and you strive to be devout every single night. And that improves you as a Muslim improves your connection to Allah zildjian. And then you reward his labor to other just like that student, your son who studies every single night, he will

00:41:02--> 00:41:43

Ace his exam because he studied all of those nights and you gave him that reward as a motivation. Not for him to only study one night, not for us to only go to the masjid or pray on the 27th No, it's for you to study all those nights so that you can win that exam and that exam is that you're after. So Allah gives later to Qatar for the sake of escaping Hellfire and winning Jana, and loving Allah zildjian is not for the sake of letting me be a wise guy. Let me be a smart guy and trying to figure out what is later to cover. I'm going to do my own calculations and we're going to do you know, follow the forecast with the forecast to see what is the most pleasant night maybe then I'll

00:41:43--> 00:41:45

catch it, you won't catch it this way.

00:41:46--> 00:41:49

You want to catch it this way. Otherwise, that's to harbor would have done it

00:41:51--> 00:42:00

that sooner of the Sahaba was to pray the whole nights of Ramadan and intensify that a bother the last 10 nights of Ramadan.

00:42:02--> 00:42:18

Now later to because there's a special about it, I was almost gonna forget that forget this Allahumma inika 412 hiboy f4 for any year Allah, you are most loving of Abu Abu you love to forgive,

00:42:19--> 00:42:48

you are forgiving, and you love to forgive so forgive me. So if you can do this insha Allah that is a drive that is recommended by the prophets of Allah sallallahu was in them nonetheless. So it's the best deal given to her she asked him if I know that this is a little further I expect or anticipate this little further What should I say? Allah making the gaafu on to Ebola Africa for any. So this is what we are seeking the most for later to make it a frequent. Now the only do

00:42:49--> 00:42:57

not only do but the most frequent to and I would recommend insha Allah that you would have with you a book of

00:42:59--> 00:43:15

or if not a book of a list of traditional inherited from the Prophet sallallahu send them and then maybe a list of what the only thing that you want to ask, but specific from the prophet SAW them, send them this do this, do this do that. And the more comprehensive there are the better.

00:43:17--> 00:43:30

And then remember all such as for the hereafter and the dunya for yourself and your family, for your brothers, for your teachers for your other Muslims that you love. People who have asked you to make up for parents,

00:43:31--> 00:43:37

grandparents, aunts, uncles, whoever include everybody as much as you can include everybody.

00:43:38--> 00:43:51

And remember the most important to Allahumma in the Gulf who want to hit bullet alpha for any allama in the Gulf want to hit bullet for that for any in addition to that. If you want to give sadaqa go ahead and give sadaqa

00:43:53--> 00:44:31

if somebody you know Subhana Allah they need your help and Allah sends them your way assist them on that night. Make a lot of do do a lot of still file do a lot of thicker line Hey Lola had the whole Dasha moon corner will handle who Allah Cooley shame Katia, do Amata Subhana Allah He will be handed Subhana Allah Allah lien and stuff we will learn that the law either in the horn Hey, are you more to buoy so do a lot of a better than take a little bit of break. If you get tired you go and eat you can drink you will go walk a little bit and then go back to your evader, take a little bit of nap and then come back to your ibadah and this way in sha Allah you will have more energy to do a little

00:44:31--> 00:44:43

even more and more. Now maybe this is the last thing shallow before we get to the questions. Okay, so a person may say to themselves to themselves to us to somebody else. He says okay, at the end of this month,

00:44:44--> 00:44:46

I'm just out of energy.

00:44:47--> 00:44:59

Really out of energy for whatever reason, circumstances whatever it is, I'm just simply out of energy. Under lockdown. I'm not being a bill. I don't have the ability to go the opportunity to go to the masjid to be

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

With family I'm just completely depleted at this time. Or somebody else who is just too excited about aid. He says mentally I've already have skipped the last 10 I'm really thinking about it.

00:45:12--> 00:45:40

So for both of those people for us do what do we say, to get ourselves motivated? We say insha, Allah Bismillah the Prophet sallahu send them God most excited, most motivated about the last 10 of Ramadan because the most important night is in them. So if you fasted so far and you prayed so far, are you simply going to quit at the right at the end, when the prizes are being given a distributed and the prize is limited,

00:45:42--> 00:46:08

before you just finish it before you reach the finish line, and it's within reach. You've been running all this around the tracks. And now you can see the finish line, you're going to have to end the race. And before you finish, you will say that said I'm too tired, I'm just going to sit here. Or you will say I can see the finish line I can see we can see now the end of Ramadan, you can count the days. So let me just push myself just a little bit more.

00:46:09--> 00:46:17

Because once it's over, it's over. Once those nights are done, their nights are done and then I can relax lever, push yourself.

00:46:18--> 00:46:21

Just see just a little bit more. Let me just push myself

00:46:23--> 00:46:31

a little bit of effort. And the prize is so grand and so big. It's so priceless. You can win. Jenna,

00:46:32--> 00:46:38

you can when the forgiveness of your sins for the past year. It will be as if you are reborn. So Pamela

00:46:39--> 00:47:18

you can escape Hellfire forever. Just for a few extra hours. So yes, physically I'm tired. Mentally Subhanallah emotionally I brought unburdened but if I ask Allah Allah of hammer I mean yeah, Allah I am too tired. Physically I'm anguished, I'm destroyed and under pressure. But I really want to do just helped me Allahumma inni magnetic rica was ukoliko his neighbor that tequila assist me. Yeah, Allah help me. Yeah, Allah inject energy into my spirit into my body and get excited about it. And so panela you know, if there are tricks that can help you get excited,

00:47:19--> 00:47:58

you know, subpanel I use them. If having special treats special food, if having coffee, having tea. If having desserts of having with moderation and charm of having desserts of having special food is having rewarding yourself or your family with gifts. inshallah, if we're gonna if we do a banner right on those nights, you have a treat of you know, eating at this restaurant, you'll have a treat of you know, ordering from this place, get them excited, get them happy and show love but motivate yourself and motivate other people. If it's something with dunia, it's worth it. And if you can do motivate yourself just basically purely based on athalon, hamdu, lillahi, rabbil, alameen, but

00:47:59--> 00:48:14

whatever works, use it, whatever works, whatever, it's gonna bring you closer to Allah and give you more energy do it. And as for the person who gets excited for it and says, I can't wait for it, you know, Ramadan is over. He say Subhana Allah eat his aid because of Ramadan.

00:48:15--> 00:48:33

You really going to enjoy your aid because you see can see you can look back and you said, I prayed. And on that night handed, I felt something. I felt close to Allah. And maybe that night was the day that I don't care what so this person said and that person clean. Maybe that night was later too.

00:48:34--> 00:49:18

And I felt something in it. And I feel closer to Allah. And I made a lot of good for my people, myself, my parents, my children. I was worried about them and I need to ask for them. I was worried about my parents, I need to ask for them. I was worried about my health. I made a lot to ask for that. I was worried about my many of money, my business, my studies. My job I was I made a lot of do after that and hamdulillah I really feel better, because I may give a meat that is a Rama from Allah that I did. Your aid will be a lot better when you can reflect and say Allah guided me to be close to him guided me towards those Knights for the for Salah for a better for Koran. I finished the

00:49:18--> 00:49:30

Quran once I finished the Koran twice I finished all on three times. I asked Allah to accept your a better will be your aid will be a pretty pretty your aid, a happier aid because of it.

00:49:31--> 00:49:59

So we put the brakes on a little bit, you can get ready for it by making food or having plans but it's not eat yet until you've actually finished Ramadan until you prayed in Ramadan. So asking Allah for it and assist as asking for his assistance. And beseeching him subhanho wa Taala pleading with him you're not but I mean, I don't have energy you give me that energy. I don't have time you give me that time. I don't have the mood you give

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

That route

00:50:01--> 00:50:03

without Allah will not be able to do it.

00:50:04--> 00:50:27

And also insha Allah push yourself, but not to the breaking point. So stand in between between a person who says, No, I'm going to push myself. I'll do the minimum or less than that. No Then we have lost it. We've lost leader to others and the prophets Allah who said them segment Halima, heylife. And Holly, if you are denied its virtue you are deprived

00:50:28--> 00:51:15

you don't want to leave Ramadan deprived be in a deprived No. So push yourself Yes, like the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to push himself so extra work more than the previous night's So push more, more on lengthier center more do more the kind of allies of just push yourself but also don't push yourself and your family to the breaking point to where you just simply resent all that data where they say that's it you made a spray the whole night it's not their custom you pray the meters free the whole night. We don't feel like crying at all now so understand your limits and the limits of your family. Push yourself but to the extent where you still want to pray the next night and the

00:51:15--> 00:51:36

next night and the next night. Push your family insha Allah but to the extent where they still want to and would like to pray the remainder of the nights of Ramadan inshallah so moderation is also important right plamen Shall I hope I did not forget anything if I did remind me insha Allah with your questions, but I shall and Shall I want to get to as many questions as possible in sha Allah

00:51:39--> 00:51:46

is what if I was bothering my family waking them up for the night prayer and I do and do I pray for night prayer after Isha

00:51:48--> 00:51:53

I mean you want to have an understanding with them that you want to wake them up for Sunday Do you want to wake up for sada

00:51:54--> 00:52:32

so I'm going to be waking up in sha Allah are not going to go to sleep Do you want to wake up at one o'clock two o'clock three o'clock negotiate with them? And if they say no these are you asked why not? A little bit of extra effort insha Allah like the prophets A lot of you are sending them that will help you so maybe you can negotiate half an hour more an hour more see what is their limit, you can force them Don't force anybody. If you go to someone he told them wake up and they say I don't want to just to just head back and you pray you tried, but just negotiate and if they agree, inshallah they're going to stand up and they're going to pray with you so let's see what is possible

00:52:32--> 00:52:39

for them what is pleasing to them and then inshallah with them when it's possible for them. And this you can start yourself out right after Isha

00:52:40--> 00:53:02

and you can space it out or you can just concentrate just right after a shot you finished by 1112 one o'clock and then you can spend the rest of the night in other evader or you can space it out start after a show up to rock as then you relax a little bit do some other things you can go back to your Salah and so on. So the different scenarios to fit in sha Allah different modes and different schedules in Sharla

00:53:04--> 00:53:44

What if you do telawi in German, a family for every night it's not advisable and better to mix ways like I described. And then inshallah it just depends on what is more suitable for your heart. What is more suitable for your family? You can do it all one shot right in a bed because that's easier for your kids. like we do in the messages right what do we do in the messages in domestic Voodoo it's one shot why is that the beginning of the night? Why is it and most of the people in Ramadan right when we do that are we are we hungry? I'm missing by the way right? When we do it most of the people most of the oma Mohammed Somali was sent him today when they do that we do it right after a

00:53:44--> 00:54:25

show one shot and we finish it. Why is that because it's easier for us. So it is easier for your family and for your kids to do it like that. Go ahead and do that. So after right after a show you pray the sooner Have you prayed that we healthier with all of your kids, and you conclude with with and you finish by 11 o'clock or maybe two o'clock depending on when Eurasia is by 12 o'clock one o'clock you're done. That's fine insha Allah because this way all the family can pray you your elderly parents, your young kids your aunt's your uncle's whoever is there all of you can pray and once you've finished everybody pray some will go to sleep you have your more energy you can if you

00:54:25--> 00:54:47

want either pray more. Read more and do more. Do more Vicar of Allah zodion whatever it is as possible for you so it's possible inshallah whatever is more convenient more a closest to your heart brings more her shoe more of the more of the family can join in a battle and that may be probably the best inshallah

00:54:48--> 00:54:53

do whatever yeah if you if you pray after Isha and you're done with all of your son or daughter then

00:54:54--> 00:55:00

if you praise her after Isha and you're spacing out the Sunnah till maybe the last

00:55:00--> 00:55:15

Third of the night it is when you conclude all of your salad that you do your router. So when you're finished all your solder, that's when your winter is if you still have some psychiatric to do no delay or whatever till you conclude all of the solder and then you deal with it, right?

00:55:17--> 00:55:46

What if I do not know how to read fluently, Allah rewards you for whatever you do. And if it's hard for you, Allah rewards you for that hardship as well. So somebody who reads the Quran and it's hard for them, Allah rewards you for trying to read the Quran, despite difficulty and resisting to read this fight difficulty. So read whatever you can, you don't have to if you cannot finish all of the Quran, you don't have to finish it. The only thing that Allah wants to see from you and me is that we're trying

00:55:47--> 00:56:26

somebody can try somebody can finish the entire Quran and they don't even try somebody they can finish the whole Quran and they tried to do as much as they can. Allah rewards you, right? It's the effort is the intention. It's that humility in your heart, it's the near the intention, it's the striving that matters, right? Not necessarily what you have finished. Right? So maybe you did not finish the whole Quran and what you can do is one just but you're trying your best, and Allah maybe you could reward you more than someone would finish the whole or arm. But he's not trying their best and they could do a lot more. So you don't worry about Incheon, I only want to do one gesture and I

00:56:26--> 00:56:32

have only a third memorized in English and the advice on how to take full advantage of my pa repeat it to

00:56:33--> 00:57:09

just repeat that juicer or you finished it insha Allah and you're done with that that 100 in that you finished your theum European does not need to be for hours and hours. If the only thing you know is just one dessert, you can just read that one just and you finish it and you sit and you read the rest of the Quran. Or another possibility you can hold the most half if it's possible for you right may may not be possible for everybody you can hold the most half you can hold your phone, you can sit down you can sit down right and almost half on your lap. Okay and you can read the Koran right and that is your Salah

00:57:11--> 00:57:12

frame sitting down

00:57:13--> 00:57:27

you can do that and you can read more than one so you can hold them as half and you can read from those half and for that that will enable you in Charlotte to eat more than one juicer even though you can read 234 and more so that's another possibility in sha Allah

00:57:29--> 00:58:12

when the month of Ramadan is 29 days then also less than nights will be from night of 20th Ramadan would start from the 19th night of Ramadan when Ramadan is 29 the last night the last 10 still start on the 29th of 20 29/21 right so if Ramadan is 29th or 30th It doesn't matter when or how many days Ramadan has the last 10 start from the 21st so you will started from the 21st night overall. So we don't know now if Ramallah is going to be 30th 30 days or 29 days. We're still starting that last 10 from the 21st right? That's

00:58:14--> 00:58:17

somebody come when he comes around if I send my

00:58:19--> 00:58:31

Zika to fifth reapportion to my half brother Do I have to say this amount is my second portion? Or do I have that to tell him just for dignity purposes? Okay, so first of all right?

00:58:32--> 00:58:47

Is that cow you don't have to tell the person that is a cow you don't have to tell a person in sicko whether it's a cow with money or is the cattle fitter you don't have to tell them that it is a cow as a cattle fitter second of all it goes for those who can afford to eat

00:58:48--> 00:59:06

basically right because it primarily should go out as food so when you understand that it should go out as food as rice as wheat as barley as like staple food so when it goes out as food you understand that it should first of all cover the needs of those who don't have this

00:59:07--> 00:59:30

once those the needs of those people are covered in goes on to cover the other needs of people right we don't have other types of food. So yes, if your brother qualifies if you have brother You said so half brother qualifies then he ate can go out to them and you don't tell them anything about it being Second. Okay, so we don't have to advertise or publicize Oh, this is a car by the way, you're gonna have to okay.

00:59:32--> 00:59:39

So besides that you have better profits on incident that I share what are the recommended personnel that we should be making if there's any tips,

00:59:40--> 00:59:47

any draw from the profits, a lot of use in them is better than our own personal job. So there is a portion reserved for our own personal job.

00:59:48--> 00:59:59

The time is a time allows it in Sharla. But if you want to give it priority, that day out of the profits a lot he was setting up than any other day that is comprehensive from the profit

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

Because comprehensive diet covers everything so that you're not going to exclude anything from it. All the good of the dunya and the ice in it, so seek that comprehensive attina for dunia has an awful lot. He has no cleaner other than that includes everything.

01:00:18--> 01:00:56

Allah manana Silikal Hagar akula Gina who as you know whom I didn't know I mean woman I'm Nana. There is a Allah we ask you for all the good. The hasent and the delete the thing that we know about the thing that we do not know about this includes everything. We seek refuge from all evil. I do the who agita the hasten and delete what we know about what we do not know about. This covers everything. We ask you for gender, anything brings us closest to it. That's includes everything we seek or protection from Hellfire and everything that brings us closer to you. That includes everything. So include the comprehensive, because it covers all bases.

01:00:57--> 01:01:09

And then after that insha Allah any dollar that you like from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and then you go on to your own personal job. Protect me from this give me that from the dunya from the asset on my parents, my children, my

01:01:11--> 01:01:15

brothers and sisters, my teacher, my students, all of this, right?

01:01:16--> 01:01:38

I've seen lots of Muslims putting efforts and birthday celebrations during Ramadan. Is this permitted in Islam birthday celebrations? And if you could please emphasize on birthday please does Allah hear about them off you go. I don't know why they're celebrating birthdays in Ramadan. In particular, we said that before birthday celebration is not from the sooner it's not from the habit of Muslims, not from the habit of the Prophet.

01:01:39--> 01:02:07

Not from the habit of the Sahaba not from the habit or early Muslims. So it's really a foreign non Muslim habit. And like a lot of foreign non Muslim habits is an inferior habit. It's not the best of habits. It's not this most sound of habits. And this is my recommendation for everybody leave it in sha Allah, there is no need for it. I don't want to get into insha Allah haram and hollered soon or be at this moment, I just want to appeal to the phone.

01:02:09--> 01:02:15

It's not something that we do for centuries and centuries, Muslims never celebrated their birthdays.

01:02:16--> 01:02:26

And as a as a celebration as something to commemorate, we usually commemorate commemorate something that Allah has have done that is prophets a lot he sort of wants us to commemorate.

01:02:27--> 01:02:31

So it's not really an occasion that is so special, that we should pay a lot of attention to

01:02:32--> 01:03:17

pay attention to what is dear to Allah dear to his prophets a lot he will send them. And as I said before, if you don't want to celebrate something, celebrate the achievements, celebrate achievements, but birthdays, it's a habit that we know that we've gotten from non Muslims. It emphasizes their habits. It has a tradition, its own tradition that is steeped into now Muslims culture and non Muslim habits and even religious habits, religious habits. So for us have had a lot, this is not something that is on the straight path. Let's de emphasize it, and re emphasize and really rededicate ourselves to whatever whatever whatever Allah has given us, including eight. So

01:03:17--> 01:03:28

when we say don't celebrate birthdays, we're not against happiness, we're not against celebrations, we're saying to all take all that energy, all that money and put it into your aid and celebrate you're at the max.

01:03:30--> 01:03:49

That is what that is something that Allah loves. This is something that the prophets of Allah Islam loves. And by doing this, you're elevating Allah's Name, and you're celebrating something that's Islamic. So you're having both ethical and dounia. Right, lower and birthdays, you know, you know, that requires a different lecture and kind of a,

01:03:52--> 01:04:05

a, kind of a, what do you say a deliberate and progressive way of trying to deal with it in sha Allah but it's in some way hope that that was adequate in sha Allah and enough inshallah for our purposes now.

01:04:07--> 01:04:15

If I cannot lengthen my turn, are we in winter 11 Raka. Since I don't memorize many soldiers, can I substitute with Dr. Baker in reading

01:04:16--> 01:04:28

Becker, in reading Quran? Are those considered part of pm so you can lengthen your turn? Are we withholding the most half if you wish, right and reading from themselves.

01:04:29--> 01:04:59

Okay, or as we said, from your phone or tablet, you can do that and read more of the Quran while you're standing. It's difficult for you to stand we said you can sit down, that's fine in sha Allah and then resume standing and then sit down again you can do this right. So that is one way for you to lengthen your Sunnah. Another way for you to lengthen your sada is as you I think you have said, lengthen it with your da and lengthen it with your zyk Vicar of Allah. So when you see a lot of talk about and you go into your record, you can make your record long

01:05:01--> 01:05:41

Then semi Allah Hanuman Hemi Dada banana can help there is also thicker in that that is one you just have to go to the books of Earth God book of the you will find the specific Vicar at that time then when you go into your sujood you can make it really long right you can make it long with Vica along with the new rise then you go again into your a sudo and you can make it again very long with thicker than with do and then you stand up in tm read more and as I said you can also hold them as half so yes, you can lengthen all parts of your Salah with thicker than wood. Okay, so I hope that answers it inshallah.

01:05:42--> 01:06:19

Does that include Okay Is there an estimate dates that we can start and which dates are night do we expect it's included later to cover all the 10 of Ramadan? If it is then will the 10 night start so the 21st so for us insha Allah it's Sunday night so you starting with Sunday night and charlemont and put more emphasis on the 21st so that's Sunday night and then the 23rd 25th 27th 29th and we said also do not neglect the even nights of Ramadan so don't neglect also the 22nd 2426 and 28th of Ramadan and then also the 30th don't neglect those inshallah.

01:06:20--> 01:06:25

Does that include major sins or minor since it includes minor since

01:06:26--> 01:06:39

the forgiveness of the previous sense include minor sins but you're also remember asking Allah for forgiveness and for mercy and recommend freedom hellfire. If Allah accepts that that will include the major sense.

01:06:40--> 01:06:45

So just the basic ibadah it forgives the minor since

01:06:46--> 01:07:00

you're asking for forgiveness includes What? All since that's why we say you can leave Ramadan sinless. If ally accepts you're a Bader and you're doing super well. Right.

01:07:02--> 01:07:49

is reading Islamic books between Asia and fedrick considered part of the yes if it is part of your study of Islam. And you kind of interval interwoven this into your evaluator. Right. So we say your intersperse. So it's not that what you're doing the only thing that you're doing in Sharla is you pre Eurasia, and he was studying and reading Islamic books till failure without doing anything else. That's not what we're saying. What we're saying is you're doing solea km tarawih and you're doing your Dra. And you're doing your thicket, and you're reading your arm. And then you're consulting as you're reading the haoran you're consulting at Tafseer or consulting a translation to understand it

01:07:49--> 01:07:59

more. And then also now you don't have energy or you're still there's some hours and you need to fill them. And there is a book of Hadith you say I read that book of Hadith, it is a banner.

01:08:01--> 01:08:13

Why just to give you that energy to give you that space so that inshallah you refresh and he can go back to your Salah. So that's what we mean we don't mean to turn later to other into a session of reading

01:08:14--> 01:08:34

just reading Islamic books, right? No. So, you are you you alternate between a balance that includes also including some Islamic or portions of Islamic books to give you some energy and motivation, what are you reading this so that you can go back to your foreign and doing the rest? So if you alternate Yes, put reading among them inshallah. Right.

01:08:40--> 01:09:24

Okay, so my concern is I have less of a man I mean, do I but remaining doubt will accept or no, so my Salah after Asia, again is accepted or no and when it's more confirmed, when I made up for my immediate issue and when time has passed, nothing happens that makes me Sure Allah for sure will not listen, how to make my email more strong. So listen, now, the most important thing that you want from Allah as though to hearing during these nights is not for your worldly things to happen. This is one thing that we mined from Allah zildjian but not the most important thing. The most important thing is that when he asked the prophets Allah said and what should I ask Allah for? He said

01:09:24--> 01:09:25

forgiveness.

01:09:26--> 01:09:43

Now when you meet Allah Zoda, you're not going to look back at your worldly life and say, Oh, I regret that I did not graduate. I regret that it was not married. I regret that it was not promoted. I regret that I did not have a million dollars by Allah. So you're not gonna say any of these things because none of these things will matter that dunia has passed.

01:09:44--> 01:10:00

So if you're only the only thing that you want is worldly things. And because he did not get them you feel that your Eman is weak and Allah is not listening to you. You're limiting yourself. Suppose that you and I are sick and I'm asking Allah for

01:10:00--> 01:10:45

Health a cure for my illness. It's not happening. It's not happening. It's not happening. See thing since this is not happening I will not ask a lot. You have limited so much of our life of Allah because Allah can give you a lot more than this. What you want from Allah is safety, eternal safety, not safety right or health for the next five or 10 years and we will die them. So if you don't get something from this dunya it's irrelevant at this moment. Forget about it. Ask for it. But don't wait for it. Your main concern is the Allah save me when I'm going to see you save me when I pass into the next life. Save me Save me one the only option is it's hellfire. Or Jenna. If I enter

01:10:45--> 01:10:58

Jenna, there is constant continuous, uninterrupted bliss. No one can take that away from me you will be healthy forever. happy forever. If I enter Hellfire who will save me?

01:10:59--> 01:11:04

You think that illness at this moment is hard? Try spending a night in hellfire.

01:11:06--> 01:11:10

So that's what we're running away from. So don't think about the dunya so much.

01:11:11--> 01:11:58

Make do out for the dunya that make it secondary Allah make me healthy cure me of this illness. Give me a better job, save me from this difficult time that I'm in save me from this make this. But now think about it. The difficulty of this life, as difficult as it is registers at attend for all of us. The difficulty of the Hereafter is at 100 compared to this life. So you think that just because I was not saved from the 10 I'm willing to risk the 100 the hardship of 100 and Hellfire or I say Subhan Allah, Allah Subhana Allah, maybe you did not grant me this thing that I want from this life yet. But for sure, I'm going to ask that you would save me from hellfire. That's the thing that

01:11:58--> 01:12:21

we're running away from. This is the thing that should give us all energy in sha Allah that it is really something weighty and heavy that is waiting for us. Allah will say where heaven or hell What did you do? What did you ask for? What did you sacrifice and I say nothing. I did every terrible thing. And when the opportunity game for came for me to be forgiven, I was too lazy to sleep be too busy.

01:12:23--> 01:12:38

Why was watching TV I was just eating I was out with my friends. This is what I did. I wasted all those hours. I have nothing to save me from hellfire. So you spend a night or two or a week or two or a month or a year in hellfire. For what?

01:12:40--> 01:13:24

So no, your image should be high and you should be very hopeful. If Allah gave you life, gave you the information gave you the energy to pray. It means that Allah wants you to pray forget about the dunya for now, ask for it. But Allah will give it at a time of his choosing worry about the most important thing and that is the hereafter. Right? And a lot of subtle delays for a reason for this dunia delays for a reason. Don't question his judgments, Hannah what Allah just wait for the right time for him to give you but even if you don't get anything from this dunya and you get it all in the hereafter you are still a winner. And you if you get all your wishes in this dunya and you lose

01:13:24--> 01:13:50

the you're after you will look at your life as you've lost it. Because now Yes, I was rich. I was healthy. I had children, man now I'm going to go into hellfire. What was my life for what did I wasted on you will look at it as a loser. So the loser is the one who loses that you're after another one who knows is that of you? So insha Allah just you know ask Allah to regenerate and when you imagine in your heart inshallah

01:13:52--> 01:13:53

okay

01:13:55--> 01:14:07

during Durham Qian Can we take a break? Can we do thicker your arm while lying on bed? Is this appropriate? Absolutely shall that's me. You can take me a lengthy

01:14:08--> 01:14:33

break to that as you can pray and then you just want to relax a little bit and you can lie in bed and you can do think of Allah zodion and then a lot of do and what have you and then stand up later and you go and then you pray. And then you know you finish your Salah you go as we said and you eat a little bit you drink a little bit you said and then you do some more and something of Allah you lie down and you do a little bit more and then nickel absolutely is financial.

01:14:34--> 01:14:59

What is the 21st of Ramadan as we said, It's Sunday night in shock. I have to pay a lot of Zika and I can't afford to pay at one time. So can I pay through the through the year and consider that is a cat thanks. Now um, if it's okay, it's due on you. But for some for whatever reason insha Allah you cannot pay it immediately you that is a debt that you owe. So as soon as you have that amount you would have to pay it

01:15:00--> 01:15:04

So as soon as it's in your possession, you would have to pay it in shop right

01:15:06--> 01:15:10

below and I'm not going to question the details of why you can pay it I'll leave that and show off to you.

01:15:13--> 01:15:29

Let me answer this in sha Allah that'd be the last thing. Some countries started the day after some other countries have, then how do we be sure which night are the odd nights? Do we just follow when we have started and not bother with the other who started was probably that's the easiest insha Allah

01:15:31--> 01:15:52

is that follow where you are, follow the Canon calendar of Ramadan when you started from Milan, if there is a significant disagreement of when Ramadan is started, that's why we said in sha Allah that's where you need to consider both the odd and the even nights in case that in case that the other guys are right and we are wrong.

01:15:53--> 01:16:35

If there are significant differences right between and in starting the month of Ramadan, and there are no significant differences where everybody started on the same day or most everybody started on the same day. We said inshallah, go ahead with your own calendar with the oromo bomb calendar. And if it happens if it happens, that the other guys were right and we were wrong, two things are possible one, since we're afraid every single night of the last 10 we also did pray on the La Liga to other second, since we tried our best to pray on the odd nights following the Sunnah of the Prophet salon he was sending them a lot also writes for us as if we prayed or later on, even though

01:16:35--> 01:17:17

we didn't really get it. But we made a mistake, right in calculation, in citing the mod Allah so that it takes that into account that we did our best to the best of our knowledge, best of our ability. And we follow the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu solemnise Allah as it writes it for you as if you've got it. So May Allah zildjian make us of those who witness leader to be Allah, give us the strength so make this to our insha Allah and make it from your heart may Allah zodion give us the energy Allah we ask you, that you assist us without your assistance and help we cannot do anything and without you accepting from us none of none, nothing that we do will be worthwhile. So

01:17:17--> 01:18:01

we ask you out of bed I mean give us the physical, emotional psychological energy to be able to worship you on the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Give us your up and I mean the appetite the desire to do more on those nights and accept that from us. Make us of those who worship you on the night of al-kurd and accepted from us and forgive us all of our previous sins and make it better for us than 1000 months make it the best knife that we have witnessed this year. Whereas Europe and Ireland mean to make us out to make our bed accepted allow us to live in this night with a bad as your messenger so Lonnie was sitting them did allow us to live it they live in all the nights of the last 10 with a

01:18:01--> 01:18:46

bad as your messenger so Allah hottie was sitting them did make us of those who do a lot of think of it do a lot of do up do a lot of reading on the on remember you do a lot of salah and accept that from us, remind us to say a lot of money make a fool to people I for for me And forgive us all of our sins the sins of the past few years. The major one and the minor ones accept us into gender and make this a reason for us to enter into gender and make this a reason and a cause for us to escape from Hellfire Armenia Bella alameen Iran reminders to include in our our parents, our spouses, our children, our loved ones, our families, our teachers and the oma Muhammad Sallallahu Adie we're

01:18:46--> 01:19:28

sending them we ask you out but allow me to accept all of our all of our fasting all of our pm to make the end of Ramadan a blessing end of Ramadan when we wanted to said you are freed from Hellfire make our Ada eight because it is eight and because we are in general I mean your enemy well as you are but Allah need to make this Ramadan the month of patience a month where we learn patience. Learn taqwa. learn a lesson in our head where they'll ruin staying away from sin and learn how to love you and love your messenger. So the lady who was hitting them, learn how to stay close to you and how to sacrifice for your sake, teach us this era but I mean in Ramadan and beyond it and make this Ramadan

01:19:28--> 01:19:59

a significant transformative moment for us. I mean, your hammer Rahimi asked about unlimited less all of you to bless all of us. I asked Robin halloumi to accept from all of us and give us the strength in sha Allah make this to be a reminder and a motivator. keep getting ready. Get yourself excited, get your family excited. pray to Allah zodat and as we said in don't get too excited, so that you only pray one or two nights and forget about the rest. get too excited and pray in moderation so that in your head and with

01:20:00--> 01:20:38

Your family plan ahead insha Allah we're going to do this in sha Allah for the whole night nights of Ramadan May Allah azza wa jal make that make this a possibility. And whenever you feel down, understand that this is natural, push through this and strive and ask Allah xojo that he gives you the energy to overcome that feeling. Perhaps Allah as of Jun is only testing us to see how determined we are. We don't have the mood push through this Allah xojo will give us in sha Allah the mood will give us in sha Allah that they will fear me Allah is 100 Rahimi accept from all of us. I mean, just welcome Allah, Allah and we will see you in sha Allah but I mean tomorrow at the same

01:20:38--> 01:20:54

time, we're going to resume in sha Allah our shorter reminder in sha Allah tomorrow. Baraka lo pecan jazak, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah Harvey Hamdi, a shadow and the ADA ADA and there's a few kawakubo they haven't really dealt with either mean a Santa Monica Rahmatullahi wa barakato
