Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi senlin as salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh everyone does acmella here and for joining us this evening, I pray that Allah Subhana Allah blesses you and makes us very heavy on your scales allama Ameen. Before we begin, I wanted to congratulate each and every one of you watching and participating in our program tonight in tonight's gathering. Yes, it may seem a little out of place to you to be congratulated. But I assure you, it's a reason far worthy of being celebrated than anything else you could have ever imagined. And along their ration that's found in
both Sahih Bukhari and Muslim Rahim Allah.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something so beautiful. But due to our time, I'm going to summarize that the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam said, that there are specific angels who are on the earth looking for gatherings of Vicar. And we're in a unique times we have a very unique situation and so our gatherings of Vicar have become virtual. So I pray that we still receive the same reward and blessings. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when the angels find the gathering, in which the remembrance of Allah is being made, just like our gathering right now, they sit with them. And some of them surround them with their wings, until they spill the space
between the heavens and the earth. And when we finish and we leave, the angels also leave, and the angels go to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah subhanaw taala asks them, although he's best informed about them, From where have you come, and they say, we have come from your servants on earth who are glorifying you and bit Clara and your greatness and your oneness and they were praising you and they were asking from you, and Allah says, What were they asking for? And they say Allah, they were asking for your paradise.
Although he asked you for paradise along the mean.
And then Allah says, What else? Are they seeking my protection? And the angels say? Yes, they're seeking your protection from the hellfire.
May Allah protect us from the Hellfire alumna? And then Allah XPath Allah asks, Are they asking do they want anything else? And the angels say, yes, you're allowed, they want your forgiveness. And so then Allah subhanaw taala says, You angels are my witnesses, that I forgive them and then granting them what they requested. And I'm giving them protection from what they seek protection from sapan Allah, isn't that amazing? That Allah subhanho wa Taala appreciates a gathering like this so much that He gives us such a great reward
Alhamdulillah we should clearly law for this.
imagine, even Raja Rahim Allah, He said something really interesting.
He said, Oh, you who wasted your life, make up for whatever you've lost unless a little further because it's equal to an entire lifetime panel.
And so approaching us is a night that is very special. And that's why we're doing this program tonight. I want you to imagine, imagine worshipping in a night that would be like worshiping for 1000 months.
And that is 83 years and four months, which is more than the average lifespan sapan Allah and Allah subhanaw taala is gifted us a night that's actually better than 1000 months. Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran in there and now who feel a little further wama dropcam Elena to cuddle. Laila to qaderi. Hi, Ron L. Fisher. The night of Qatar is much better than 1000 months as per the law. So let's do the math. That means that one hour during that night is better than just over nine years of worship. One minute is better than more than 56 days of worship. And one second, think about a second the amount of time it takes to say Suppan, Allah or Al Hamdulillah
Allahu Akbar is equivalent to almost an entire day of worship Allahu Akbar. Imagine
Isn't that amazing? We have a lord who is so generous who gives us opportunities like this. So inshallah we're able to take advantage of every second and not waste this precious opportunity. It was collected by Muslim Rahim Allah that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, look for the Night of Decree in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. If one of you is unable to, then do not become over, do not be overcome by the remaining seven nights. So the prophet SAW Selim is giving us a little insight he's saying, if you can't do the last 10 nights, then be really, really prepared for the last seven nights and the handle now we have about eight nights left for a MOBA. So we all know
the countless virtues of this special night. So instead of focusing on the virtues Today, I wanted to share with you 10 super easy good deeds that we can all do inshallah to maximize our rewards.
Our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something so beautiful, he said, Do those deeds which you can do easily, as allow will not get tired of giving you rewards until you get bored or tired of performing these good deeds. So Pinilla and emammal has actually said something so profound. He said, When Allah loves the servant, he allows him or her to use these virtuous times, like these blessing Knights engaged in acts of worship. So, inshallah, because we're all here, and we're trying to learn how to maximize our rewards on the special night, inshallah that's a sign that Allah subhanaw taala loves us and wants good for us. So before we begin, I want you to share with
you one of the easiest good deeds that you can do, and that is, tag a friend or share this video. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the one who guides someone else to do something good, gets a similar reward. And so this is truly one of the easiest good deeds because all you have to do is click a button inshallah Tada.
Alright, this is the last before we start talking about the 10 easy good deeds. I just wanted to share one more quote by Eben rajim. It'd be the Rajab Rahim Allah. And he said that it's recommended during these last 10 nights where we are hoping and anticipating Layla Takada, to clean oneself to take a shower to use perfume and wear beautiful good clothing. Because these are special times and so let's make these nights special as we're standing before and worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah subhanaw taala is beautiful and he loves beauty. And
as we're adorning ourselves and we're wearing our favorite outfits, let's ensure that they cover everything we need to cover inshallah to Allah. So this meant that let's start our 10 easy good deeds that have great rewards.
Number one, forgive free your heart from the shackles of grudges and envy the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the gates of Paradise are open on Mondays and Thursdays and every servant of Allah who does not associate anything with Allah will be forgiven. So imagine all of us are Muslims. So hamdulillah we don't associate partners with Allah, so we should all be forgiven. But then the prophet SAW Sam says, except for a person who has a grudge in their heart against their brother or a sister about them, it will be sad. Delay these two until they reconcile delay these two until they reconcile this panel.
So take some time out today,
right now, and look into your heart and see Do I have any grudges that I need to deal with? The other thing we need to look in our hearts for is envy. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said beware of envy for consumes good deeds to satisfy or consumes wood or grass. So we don't want to gather all of these good deeds to find them burn up. Because in our hearts, we have envy while we're scrolling on our social media feeds, right and so take some time out today, and check your heart number to seek forgiveness these nights or nights
begging Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness and pardon. There's a special link between these nights and seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala is the law on how our mother the most beloved person to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And she said Yasuda last a lot. He was an if I know which night is Linda Toka? What should I say? And he said to her, say Allahumma inika. One. Kevin, you want to have a laugh with f1 or f1. Although you are pardoning and generous, you love to forgive, so forgive me.
There's a beautiful Vicar, a beautiful supplication for forgiveness, that has such a great reward. And it's so easy. So one of the companions said that his father narrated to him from his grandfather that he heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam say, whoever says this, Allah will forgive them, even if they fled from the battle. And that's one of the huge sins to flee from the battlefield. And this the good is super easy. It's a stuff that a lot has been, and led the last ilaha illa who and how you if you were to relay
or ally, seek forgiveness from you, the magnificent home, there's no one worthy of worship, but you the living the I you and I turned to you and repentance. And so saying this three times, will in sha Allah forgive your sins Alhamdulillah Allah.
There is another drop of forgiveness that the prophet SAW Sam taught us and he said it's seen so far. It's the best way to ask Allah for forgiveness. He also said Whoever says it in the evening with faith in it believing in its certainty, and they pass away they will be from the people of paradise. And it is a lahoma enter of de la ilaha illa Anta hallak taneema Anna hubdoc and Allah raha deca deca Messiah that will be coming shortly mass are not boo like I've been ametek la what will be then be Fela fiddley for unknown for the new battle and
so they do have What does it mean? It means all Allah, you are Myra. There's no to God except for you. You've created me and I'm your servant. And I'm trying as best as I can. I'm holding on to your covenant as best as I can. I seek refuge in You from the evil of what I've done. And I acknowledge your never ending favours upon me and I confess my sins so pardon me for no one has the power to pardon me except for you. Subhan Allah, such a beautiful day. So in sha Allah make this a part of your habit to recite it every morning and every evening in sha Allah.
Do you want an unimaginable unfathomable mount of good deeds? It's countless truly listen to this heavy where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever seeks forgiveness for the believing men and the believing women. Allah will record for that person
good deeds equivalent to every believing man and every believing woman. Imagine how many believing men and women have there been on this earth since the time have had them on a salon? So if you say Oh Allah forgive me and all the believing men and all but believing women, the ones who came before me and the ones who will come after me alone give you a good deed for every single one of them. And we know from another headache when we make too hard for our brothers and sisters. The angels make that for us. So in Arabic one can say a lot homophily when a Muslim in a while in Muslim 81 in meanie no one would mean it and yet even home well am I
okay, number three is a good day, pray Asia and fudger with your family and congregation. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that if any one of us was to play, pray a shot and congregation, they would be rewarded as if they prayed half the night. And if they were to follow it up with fudger and congregation, it would be as though they prayed the entire night. So have someone in your home make an event called for prayer and pray and Jamaat and why am I saying that as an because the prophet SAW sent him said whoever hears the event and repeats after it and then
a shadow ally either hands allow a shadow and the hammer the habit of solo Robbie to be left here Ababa Islami Dino be Mohammed Salalah alayhi wa sallam Libya, all their sins will be forgiven. And so make sure and these nights you have one of your sons or your husband, make an event and then have one of them lead the prayer as a family and inshallah you will get this great reward Subhana Allah.
Number four, pray some, some extra night prayers. The Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam said, Whoever stands in prayer during Laila to cuddle with faith and hope will be forgiven. So pray extra prayers with that faith that Allah subhanaw taala is capable of forgiving all your sins, and hope that he will reward you in unimaginable ways in sha Allah. The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam also told us that the best prayer after the obligatory prayer is the night prayer.
So make sure that you spend some time tonight praying and every night
and if you can't pray for your sister, or if you're ill and you can't pray, inshallah, you can do all of the other things that we're going to be discussing. Number five, recite the Quran. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that whoever reads one letter from the court and will receive a reward, and that reward will be multiplied by minimum 10. And that's outside of Ramadan. Imagine the great reward of reciting Quran in Ramadan. So Han Allah Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah, so make sure you recite a portion of the quarter and every night. And if you find it difficult to recite congratulations to you, because the profits on the LA laser incentive for you is double the
reward in addition to your portion of the quarter, and that you're going to be reciting every night. Make sure you recite Surah Al Fatiha. Because the prophet SAW Sam said that one day jabril was sitting with him. And he heard a sound above from the heavens, and he lifted his head. And he sat to believe that a sunset. This is a gate, which has been opened from heaven today. And it's never been opened before. And there's an angel that descended. And this angel came down to earth and he never came down before. And he sent greetings to the prophets last 11 and said, rejoice with two lights given to you from Allah. Such lights were not given to any profit before you. And the first is super
telepathic. And we'll talk about the second later, but those are the last as of Susan Bopara.
the the angel continued and said, You will never recite a word from them without being given the blessings. It contains panela there are so many virtues of reciting sweated fat you don't have time to get into them. But make sure every night you recite certain fats you have
to also make sure that you recite ayatul kursi after every single prayer, because the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever recites ayatul kursi after every prescribed prayer, there will be nothing standing between them and Jana except for the fact that they're alive and they haven't died yet. Subhan Allah also recite the last two items within Bukhara we just heard the great virtue
of it and sort of Fatiha listen to this next Hadees where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said whoever recites the last two verses of certain baugher at night it's enough for him or her. So make sure your site M and R so the last one is with a Bukhara Also make sure your sites would have been what the prophet sallallahu Sallam said there's a chapter in the Quran and it's only 30 verses. It's so short, which will intercede for its companion until they're forgiven. And that is Tabata. Can it be a deal more suited and work? Also, make sure you recite so little caffeine on Kalia you had caffeine on because the prophet SAW Selim said it's equivalent to one fourth of the Quran allow Acrobat and
ensure he recites with a loss Seurat kulu Allah had because one time the professor came up to the companions and he said, Are any one of you unable to recite one third of the court and, and they thought to themselves, when there's a lot in one night, and the prophet SAW said and said, I'll teach you something
recite Kahala had and it's equivalent to one third of the soup and Allah ladra below and who also said that the prophet SAW Selim taught him and said whoever recites
Cool Hello ahead so that'll last 10 times allow built for him a house in general. So make sure you tell your children, you tell your friends you tell your family so inshallah we can all be neighbors with the prophet SAW Selim in Jenin insha Allah Allah and he and
last but not least recite the three coils called Wallah who had come out of the rubble for luck and cool arrow, the European nurse three times, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever recites them, it will suffice them in all respects. Number six, make lots and lots of that lay that are covered is the night of that. Some scholars say that it's the night where our decrees come down from the heavens for the upcoming year. And so we want to make sure that we're making lots of
money make the heart for everything, because the prophet SAW Selim also said that the only thing that changes our Divine Decree is our their app. And so when a person reflects on this, we should realize that the little cover is the perfect opportunity to make that for everything we want in this life and everything we want in the Hereafter, and to seek refuge and ask Allah to protect us from everything that we want protection from in this life and everything we want protection from, in the here after.
And so make lots and lots of
and I want you before you start making that to do something, I want you to imagine a lost colleague and say, Hey, Ayesha feltner,
herded around the dunya asked me and I'll give you whatever you want, what do you want? How would you ask Allah? What would you do? And remember, in the court, and Allah says, we'll call out a book of Maduro and the statue of Lacan. And your Lord says, Call upon me, I will respond to you. So ask Allah subhanaw taala make the heart for everything you want in this life and in the next.
And I want to teach you an all encompassing drop. And this is a drag that the prophets and allies have taught his beloved wife, Isha, right, so it's important.
So our mother so the Lord has said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught our this application Allahumma inni iluka Minh and Heidi Cooley. Hi, Julie. Hi, Julie.

And I seek refuge in the Hellfire and everything that brings me closer to it in words or in deeds. And I asked you that you make every decree that you've decreed concerning me good llama I
mean, what a beautiful that and make sure you ask Allah for agenda three times and you seek refuge from the Hellfire three times. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever asks a lot for dinner three times genomics dot for them and whoever seeks protection in Allah from jahannam three times jahannam will say Allah protect them from the fire. So say Allah Houma, a journeyman a nod along a journeyman and not Allah a journeyman or not, and then say Allah humma in me as eloquent Jin along in the syllable gender along the in the ethical gender, love and mean.
uphold the ties of kinship. Reach out to family members send a quick text message to different family members. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Would anyone of you like for their provisions to be increased and their lifespan expected their lifespan
band extended. And everyone said yes. And he said the license said then let him uphold his ties of kinship.
And that doesn't just include your four family members that you need to text. It includes the people in your home smile in the face of your wife or your husband, or your children. It's a charity say sometimes when you walk in and out of the room with each other, saying finance is a great source of reward. When we say Assalamualaikum we get 10 good deeds if we if we add to it as salaam aleikum, wa rahmatullah we get 20. And if we add wabarakatuhu, we get 30 easy goodies. So imagine, every time you walk in and out of the rooms, you say to each other Santa Monica, Santa Monica, with lava, katsu, easy goodies, and then imagine they're multiplied and magnified on this blessing night in sha
And don't forget to shake hands with those in your home. Because shaking hands and giving hugs is a source of great reward. The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam said that when two believers meet, and they greet each other at peace, and they shake hands, their sins fall panela and don't we all want our sins to fall? Isn't that what we're looking for on these bus nights? Now, Number eight, make lots of the cat and send lots and lots of kilowatts upon our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The Vicar and sending Salawat upon the Prophet is one of the easiest forms of worship, even if you're tired, you can do it. There's no need to make with you. There's no need to put your hijab
on or to stand face. kubla there's no prayer mat needed. You don't need nothing. All you need is your heart. You can do it anytime, anywhere, while you're walking, or you're standing while you're laying while you're cooking. You can make the care and sense a lot upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It's one of the easiest forms of worship, and the reward is so unbelievably great. A reward we can't even fathom and I'm just going to share a few quick victories that gain great rewards with you.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, should I not tell you something that is beloved by a lot an expression that Allah loves? And they said, yes, you're a salon. He said, Suppan, Allah, He will be handy. And he also said, Whoever says that 100 times in a day or a night, allow will forgive all of their sins, even if they were to the extent of all the foam in all of the oceans and seas. So panela one time the prophet SAW said and said to the Sahaba, can any one of you earn 1000 good deeds? And one of those presidents said, Yeah, rasulillah How How can I earn 1000 That's a lot. How can I earn 1000 good deeds, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said by saying so panela 100
If you say Subhana Allah 100 times 1000 good deeds will be recorded for you and 1000 sins would be removed from your record Allahu Akbar.
Now there's a narration that is so amazing. Our mother do a via media LaWanda, one of the prophets Allah Hollywood, Sam's wife said, she was at home sitting in her prayer place before fudger the prophet SAW sent him got up and left to go to fudger in the masjid. So she was sitting there and she was worshiping Allah praying fudger making Vicar and whatnot. And then the prophet SAW Selim came home after sunrise. So this is probably hour and a half, two hours later, and she was still in her same position making Vicar so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked her Are you in the same state as I left you in? And she said, Yes. And then he said, after I left you I said forwards three
times. And if I were to take them and compare them to everything you did in the past two hours, they would outweigh them.
And then he said to her, and they are Suppan Allah He will be handy either the Hulk wherever netsy was in at arshi when we daddy Kelly matter.
So make sure that you say those three times, every night inshallah. And since Salawat, upon the Prophet SAW Salah, there's so many virtues but I'm just gonna share one with you. Whoever sends blessings upon me once Allah the Prophet, some said Allah will erase 10 cents from him, and will raise him 10 degrees and status. Number nine give charity give sadaqa prophet SAW Sam said charity extinguishes sins like water extinguishes fire. Prophet SAW Selim also said protect yourself from Hellfire, even by giving one piece of data as charity. The prophets ourselves also said whoever would be loved whoever would love to be shaded on the Day of Judgment with Allah shade, let him help
someone in hardship. So imagine if your charity feeds someone who's starving and saves their life. Unless isn't the court and whoever saves one life, it's as if they saved the entire humanity and Al Hamdulillah
there are so many charitable organizations out there
I've been working with one and I've placed the link for you in the description so that we can all share the award tonight in sha Allah and gain this great reward together.
And number 10 Last but not least, practice and gratitude should take some time out to think of the countless blessings that Allah has blessed to us and thank Allah for them.
Alas, panatela loves to be praised and he loves when people appreciate his blessings. The prophet SAW Sam said your Lord loves praise and gratitude and he also said that hamdulillah fills the scales of good deeds. He also taught us that whoever eats something and says and handed in lalla the nominee have our as academia highly heavily manual aku all of their past and future sins will be forgiven. He also said Whoever says when they get dressed and they wear their clothes, and handy landlady cassani Heather Thea Buddha's aka Neiman Heidi Helen Mineola Cova Allah will forgive their past and their future sins sapan Allah and these are just because these are just to have gratitude,
