you who believe give charitably from the good things you have acquired, that we have produced for you from the earth. Do not give away the bad things that you yourself would only accept with your eyes closed. Remember that God is self sufficient, Worthy of all praise. Say in certain ways you too with with the prospect of property and command you to do foul deeds. God promises you His forgiveness and his abundance. God is limitless and all knowing and he gives wisdom to whoever he will. Whoever is given wisdom has truly been given much good. But only those with insight. bear this in mind. Whatever you may give or vowed to give, God knows it well. And those who do wrong will have

00:04:36--> 00:05:00

no one to help them. If you get it openly, it is good. But if you keep it secret, and give it to the needy and private that and it will atone for some of your bad deeds. God is well aware of all that you do. It is not for you to guide them. It is God who guides whoever he will. Whatever charity you give back to your own soul provided you do it for the sake of God whatever

00:05:00--> 00:05:31

You give will be repaid to you in full, and you will not be wronged gift to those needy who are wholly occupied in God's way and cannot travel in the land. The unknowing might emerge because of the self restraint, but you will recognize them by the characteristic of not begging persistently. God is well aware of any good you give. Those give out of their own possessions, by night and by day in private and public will have their reward with their Lord, no fear for them, nor will they grieve, physical.

00:07:44--> 00:08:25

So here we are, the 23rd night of this month of Ramadan. In fact, when you think of it six months ago, none of us were even thinking of this month of Ramadan. We probably thought you know, it's it's a long time away. Let's not think about it. And when we reached three days before this month of Ramadan, in the month of chawan, we started to feel Hey, wait a second, am I even ready for this month, and we began to prepare, we began to eat we began to learn we ourselves in the mode, we bought the groceries, we stocked the fridge no Alhamdulillah, we put out our plan. Some people have their own nutrition plan. They have their plan, they have their own plan, they have their you know

00:08:25--> 00:09:04

circled plan. There's all these different kinds of plans that everyone has put in place for themselves. And then what we see what we saw happening at the beginning of the month of Ramadan is everyone just started to push really hard, right? And you get that burnout right at the beginning where you feel Subhanallah missing the coffee and missing the tea and missing the food I'm missing the nutrition that I typically would have and all the junk food as well. Then we got into this nice mode where we traveled through the last few weeks. And here we are, one week away from the end of the month of Ramadan. Just one week away. So 23rd night, there's only a few more nights left of this

00:09:04--> 00:09:22

month of Ramadan. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us very clearly we know this sort out many of us memorized it when we were children. rules will be hidden lashay banyuwangi team. This means your mama and your lahi in

00:09:24--> 00:09:42

Zen movie in a Latino Cardo wanna come on to lucado lane or to call the Hawaii room in elfi showhome Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he brought down to us this night of power.

00:09:44--> 00:09:55

That is a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala and it's prescribed for us throughout this month during some time and the Quran descended on that night as well

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

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

So when we think of the month of Ramadan, and we think of the blessings within this month, and we think of it being a month of the Quran, have we really thought that this is the month when I'm supposed to connect with my Creator through the guidebook that came to the messenger from an angel on a night that could be tonight?

00:10:21--> 00:11:02

We usually don't think of it that way. And Allah subhanaw taala asks one other Laila to record what do you think is later to recover? Think what do you think if we ask our children say Laila to Qatar is at 3.3 years did it is it and they give us all the whole breakdown, right, like one second during the month of during the night of Laila to Qatar is equal to, I don't know, if you do the math, it's something like 23 hours of very bad one second, but really, when we think of it, Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, will not add Raka Molina to Qatar, Laila to Qadri hieromonk, artificial, Allah Subhana. Allah says it's not equal to 1000 months, it's not equal to 83.33333. It's not equal to one set

00:11:02--> 00:11:40

during that night is 23 hours played. It's better, it's even better. What that indicates to us is that the rewards from Allah subhanho wa Taala are rewards that we can't even think of, we can't comprehend. They are so abundant, so amazing, so awesome. And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah tells us as well at the end of soif author, you'll notice in the second to last page third to last page right at the bottom of the page, Allah Subhana. Allah Allah says, that those who give in sadaqa, Allah Subhana, which Allah rewards them in this life, but also abundantly in the hereafter.

00:11:42--> 00:12:27

He never leaves us dry. Allah Subhana which Allah never abandons us. And so on this night, we need to make sure that we give a little extra and I know you're probably thinking that I'm referring to what I'm not referring to money yet, money comes later. First need to give to Allah subhanho wa Taala in ways that we can get to him by simply sitting down and refraining from committing sin. If you have your phone in your hand, and you're watching this right now, make sure that the next swipe is not wipe to something that's how long make sure that the next time you click like is not liking something that is how long, make sure that next time you push the Back button to escape from tic

00:12:27--> 00:12:35

Tock and it doesn't let you escape keeps you there. It takes you to someone else's, you know video, make sure they press it twice and you escape as quickly as you can.

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

Open up your Quran. Recite a simple page.

00:12:41--> 00:12:45

Raise your hands, ask Allah for forgiveness.

00:12:46--> 00:13:08

Think of your parents think of your children. Think of your neighbors. Think of yourself. Think of the day that you could be holding your hands like this now. But on the day when the sun is bright and hot and above our heads and we're sweating, the hands of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are holding water in them for you to drink from.

00:13:10--> 00:13:33

Why? Because Laila to Ricardo de hieromonk Alfie Shahar because you knew that the night of Laila to Qatar is better 1000 months. So you decided to yourself or within yourself, I'm not going to let this night go to waste. I'm going to work hard, the ability an opportunity to drink from the hands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:13:34--> 00:13:34

tenez

00:13:36--> 00:13:59

what roofie her be is Nairobi him in Cali, Allah Subhana Allah sends the angels and of course amongst them is the angel Jabri. Allah has center. And we'll get to the last part of this surah on the 25th night in sha Allah, Allah but for now, I want to encourage all of us to make sure that we use these next minutes

00:14:00--> 00:14:31

when we finish listening to you know myself and then we pass it off to chef for the yard as soon as we're done. Or if you have another device, think of the mustard think of this place that we're sitting. Think of the place where the angels are surrounding the angels are filling the instantly they're a place where Allah subhanho to Allah and only Allah Subhana Allah is a place that you and I have the opportunity, the ability, the strength, the power, the know how to maintain and to look after.

00:14:32--> 00:14:35

But the question is, do I have the choice?

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

And we do.

00:14:38--> 00:14:57

We have the choice, but will you and I choose to give to the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala tonight, will you and I choose to open a little bit of what we have saving in here for Allah Subhana water Allah knowing very well that this night

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

could be the last night of our

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

Our lives this night could be a little cuddle this night could be the night that Allah multiplies it. And this night, could be a night we never get again for the rest of our lives. My brothers and sisters, the websites are up in front of you, I've pinned it on Instagram, it's up on Facebook and YouTube. For those of you that have another device in front of you, or if you want to swing by the masjid and you know we have the drive thru set up for donations outside, we're going to be here for the next hour. And so please do feel free to swing by and shout Allahu Allah will see you on the outside will accept patients will make do our together with the loss of hanworth Allah failand

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

Baraka and we ask Allah subhana wa to Allah to put goodness in your lives, and to bless you with the best of this dunya and to bless you with the best of the earth era and to shade you on the day of judgment because your heart was so connected to the masjid, that even when you were in the comfort of your home, you decided to get into your car to drive over to the sound of community center of Milton and to give a little sadaqa for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and for no other reason except for Allah does aka malachite on I'll pass it off to Sheffield medical local fue como Santa Monica Morocco to LA he wabarakatuh

00:16:30--> 00:16:49

smilla Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam so less salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My dear brothers and sisters, I'm gonna share something with you, you may not have never heard, truly, because I've been doing some research. And I was thinking, What shall I share with you, but I want it to reach your heart.

00:16:50--> 00:17:09

I'm going to echo a little bit of what she said. And then I'm going to, you know, go a little bit further, about the same solar. And again, remember I said In short, I'm going to mention something maybe you've never heard before, about that very particular solar that the chef has recycling, in Enza no feeding

00:17:10--> 00:17:12

data to other federal officials.

00:17:13--> 00:17:42

I used to make that mistake myself. You know, a lot of us think that when our kids, like the chef said earlier about the, you know, the wind the numbers, you know, 83 years and few months and what not, that's the 84 years, but we tend to ignore higher. I want to focus on the higher, higher, what's higher, what is this higher year better? Better than 1000 months? Could it be 1000? Could it be 1 million? Could it be one zillion?

00:17:43--> 00:17:52

whatever the number is, let's say x number, Allah subhana wa Jalla. It says higher, it is better. The state at this night could be tonight, by the way.

00:17:53--> 00:18:01

And there's some hobbies, in fact, in some many authentic Heidi, who have mentioned that the later two is on the 23rd of

00:18:02--> 00:18:08

Ramadan, which is tonight, higher and why Allah azza wa jal mentions 1000.

00:18:09--> 00:18:31

And here's the beauty. Why 1000? Why not 1 million? Because the Sahaba this plan, this particular verse here, at the time was addressed to the Sahaba that the companions and the companions, they only knew 1000 as the utmost number. A lot of them they did not know, it was something above 1000 I'll give you an example.

00:18:33--> 00:18:39

When they used to enumerate the, the wealth of wealth,

00:18:40--> 00:18:43

they said other men have had elf, elf.

00:18:45--> 00:18:59

elf elf. elf in Arabic means 1000. Right? So they said I've heard now for us to have 1000 1000 that means 1 million they did not know what million they said. 1000 1005 from a random from sheeps.

00:19:00--> 00:19:35

And then he used to have alpha in alpha immunolabeled. I'll find alpha again. He used to have to, I'll find 2000 elf, which means 2 million from the evil from the camels. A shade melodeath what I'm trying to say here, they only knew 1000. If they knew 1 million they would have said 1 million if they knew one zillion they would have said 101 billion 1 trillion. I don't know. I mean, the Atmos what numbered I know up to maybe one zero in other days, anything above one zillion personally I don't know. And but

00:19:36--> 00:19:41

the Sahaba the only new 1000 I'll give you another example. This man by the name of even

00:19:42--> 00:19:47

when the Prophet Mohammed is a sin was talking about some prophecy that that's the

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

healer and healer in Iraq. You shall conquer Iraq, and they will be this woman by the name of shaman on her dark buckler mule. She is the daughter of

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

This King, and you shall conquest. And she will become one of the prisoners of war. Yeah, and one of the spoils of war. And then the Prophet is talking about something that has to happen years later. This happened in the era of Omar.

00:20:18--> 00:20:30

But when the Prophet was talking a man by the name of the house, he went to the Prophet, he says, Yes, will love a Shima. He's talking about that a woman is a shaman. Can it be mine?

00:20:33--> 00:20:36

Can it be mine? And the Prophet says, she is yours.

00:20:37--> 00:20:47

If you are that is yours. So he years later, and Ibn owes he participated in that battle.

00:20:48--> 00:20:53

You know, and they called basara in Iraq, so even

00:20:55--> 00:21:37

Oh, looking around, looking around, looking around, he's looking around for a shame up. And then he found this woman on this mule, and he rushed to her, are you ashamed? She says, I am ashamed. And then he made some truth Allah Xhosa, and he grabbed the mule. Then he went to the end of the day, it says she is mine. He says, Who gave her What do you say? Should we have not even distributed the sports? He says the Prophet Mohammed gave her to me, says, Well, you have that he? Let's talk to another. So he went on. Yeah, I mean, she's fine. says Do you have a daily? We haven't even distributed the sports you have evidence says yes. About sola. sola. How do you have any evidence

00:21:37--> 00:21:47

you have any witnesses? He says, yes. I have two witnesses. They came and they said, Yes, we heard the Prophet Mohammed telling him, she will be yours. I'm gonna cry.

00:21:48--> 00:22:07

What happened was because she is the daughter of the kink. One as a hobby came to me says, when they will come ask him, you know, to get her back, ask what any money, they will give it to you. So, lo and behold, the brother of that shamer the princess came to him.

00:22:08--> 00:22:22

He says, Ask anything you want. I'll give you just give me my daughter. He says 1000 1000 so the guy put 1000 and gave it to him and then he took his daughter, a sister and he left the Sahaba went to him.

00:22:23--> 00:22:32

Do you know who this guy is? Is the prince He is the son of the king? Why did you ask for 1000 he says is that anything more than 1000?

00:22:34--> 00:23:22

Is there anything more than 1000? So what what are we learning here? They that will cover the higher on min elf. Allah is saying that this Layla is better than elf at the time of the Sahaba did not know anything more than 1000 So Allah is telling them it is better than 1000 months of a Bader and that 1000 like the sheer said, Imagine you can imagine anything you want. Is it one in 1000 is it 1 million? Is it something you cannot imagine? That number is bad as Allah Subhana Allah tell us why. xS zero. Here's another beauty that we don't know much about in the later on. In Arabic When you say come down, because when you look at the the translation in English it says the angel descends really

00:23:22--> 00:23:27

the trunk English translation does not give justice to the idea unless it's tetanus xlv say

00:23:29--> 00:24:16

this is the means Yanni with the emphasis. Tenzin Tenzin in Arabic means Nebula Yan zero out 10 zero come down. But Allah says the ns zelle tannersville This is why you need to learn the beauty of Adobe, you know, Xs zen, this is an emphasis here meaning as added aim, they say the angels there start come it's it's it's really it's it's a celebration of the universe, celebrate what kind of celebration, all the angels they live whatever they're doing, and they're start coming down coming down from Missouri but anthon first of Denison turnersville angels of the angels of the angel who is doing this and who's know they live everything that could come in down, led by zebra has set up for

00:24:16--> 00:24:23

a mother enter fashion. If they were to come down as they are coming right now down and they see you donating

00:24:24--> 00:24:27

1000 Why did I say 1000? up?

00:24:29--> 00:24:30

I know 1000

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

All right. I'm just like in the house. So I want us insha Allah to Allah you will be the first brother or sister who will say I will give $1,000 in sha Allah Allah sadaqa if you know more, give more but I know 1000 give 1000 in sha Allah in lei little cuddly as Allah will multiply in abundance inshallah Rotana do not miss out this opportunity as the Shia says who knows whether we're going to be able to live

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

And witness another aid or another Ramadan or another day or even the night of the 25th or the 27th. So, Allah Subhana Allah tabulous you may Allah reward you may Allah cadential Allah as Kamala Harris Baraka lofi come, may Allah make you amongst those whose soul will be saved in sha Allah from Hellfire in this blessing nights in sha Allah is Akuma La Jolla Baraka loafie calm what a salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
