Bismillah Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu. This is your sister in Islam, Felicia Bennett. And I'd like to say to you all a big congratulations mobarak congrats on reaching the final 10 nights of the blessed month of Ramadan. Indeed, it is a great Nima a great blessing and a great mercy a gift from Allah subhanaw taala. The fact that we have been able to meet these final 10 nights of Ramadan and not just that, we're actually well into it almost halfway through the final 10 nights. So we've got a little window of opportunity to truly start to push ourselves for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala in our worship. So what are we looking for in these final nights of Ramadan, we
are looking for the night of elkader Laila to look older, or sometimes it's translated as the night of power. But what I want to remind you and myself to do is for us to tap into our power, the power of what what powers do, you and I have, we have the power of prayer, we have the power of da we have the power of our Quranic recitation, we have the power of setting new intentions renewing our faith, and we have the power of giving for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala Allah Allah tells us in Surah to codder Laila to look at the higher amin el fissure, that the Night of Decree it is better than 1000 months at 1000 months of worship, which we equate to over 80 years of worship. So whatever you
do on that night, whichever night it might end up being year after year, if you can exert yourself in those final 10 days of Ramadan, inshallah you can achieve and meet and gain the benefits and rewards of Layla Takada with whatever worship you are able to exert. So, what kind of efforts should we make in those days we know that, you know we should make our prayers we should make dua and recite Quran but one of the things that we can really make an effort in is in giving sadaqa and imagine if you give sadaqa on that night that you have inshallah, maybe Allah Allah knows you've you've managed to give sadaqa on one of the nights of the final nights of Ramadan, and one of those
nights ends up being Laila to Qatar, and you're rewarded for having given sadaqa for 80 years. Pamela imagine the rewards imagine the countless blessings and mercy Imagine seeing a lowest quintile on the day of judgment and you have these mountains of good deeds and you're like where did that come from? And it was the sadaqa that you gave potentially on Layla Takada at some stage in your life. So I want you to get behind Sadako welfare fund and in particular, they've got the hashtag going path to elkader and give sadaqa with the intention of paving the way to achieving and meeting Layla Takada in these final nights of Ramadan and having having given a generous amount of
sadaqa and let your charity not only earn your reward, but inshallah also expiate you for your sins we all have countless sins. So we all of course, were hungry for reward, but we also need Allah dollars forgiveness for the sins that we commit. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam says in a hadith recorded intermediary that charity extinguishes sin, just as water extinguishes fire. So put out the fires of sins that we have committed with your charity in sha Allah and Allah subhanaw taala also tells us that verily good deeds remove the evil deeds. In chapter 11 verse 114, giving charity giving sadaqa is inshallah going to remove the evil deeds that you and I have committed. So let's do
it now. Congratulations on meeting the final nights of Ramadan and don't regret that you have let these nights passed and make sure you exceed and excel in what you're able to give to Allah Darla particularly of sadaqa jazak Allah hi
