00:00:31--> 00:00:33

SubhanAllah, already 20 days

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

gone.

00:00:34--> 00:00:37

It's absolutely as Ramadan always is

00:00:38--> 00:00:41

called the light, generous,

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

guest, the light, meaning not the heavy. This

00:00:45--> 00:00:47

is a very common word we use

00:00:47--> 00:00:49

we use it in the Arab world,

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

very

00:00:51--> 00:00:52

light, brings a lot of khair,

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

brings a lot of generosity

00:00:55--> 00:00:56

and it does not

00:00:56--> 00:00:57

burden

00:00:58--> 00:01:01

the host, subhanAllah, it doesn't burden us on

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

the contrary, subhanAllah, that

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

we have

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

20 days Allah gave us life to live,

00:01:09--> 00:01:12

but the as we always say, we leave

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

the best for the last, and SubhanAllah, there

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

is always a reason for everything we say,

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

and the best for the last is actually

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

the last 10 nights or the last 10

00:01:22--> 00:01:25

days of Ramadan, but specifically the last 10

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

nights and specifically

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

the odd numbers,

00:01:29--> 00:01:30

the witter.

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

And Rasool alaihi salatu wasalam in a beautiful

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

hadith that you probably have heard it many

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

times by now,

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

and it says the following,

00:01:39--> 00:01:39

O people,

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

There is more than one narration.

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

An

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

amazing, a great, and honorable month

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

has come. It's already come, it's already 20

00:01:51--> 00:01:53

days SubhanAllah.

00:01:54--> 00:01:55

It's a blessed month.

00:01:57--> 00:02:00

In a month, there is a night better

00:02:00--> 00:02:02

than 1,000 nights.

00:02:03--> 00:02:04

Allah made fasting,

00:02:09--> 00:02:10

Allah made

00:02:11--> 00:02:12

fasting an obligation.

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

Okay.

00:02:16--> 00:02:16

And

00:02:16--> 00:02:18

standing up in the night

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

in salah

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

is an act of

00:02:22--> 00:02:23

voluntary. It's not an obligation.

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

It's highly recommended.

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

Now,

00:02:29--> 00:02:29

whomsoever

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

gets try to try

00:02:32--> 00:02:35

to come closer to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala,

00:02:35--> 00:02:38

any small good deed of goodness,

00:02:38--> 00:02:41

it is as he or she have done

00:02:42--> 00:02:43

obligation

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

outside Ramadan

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

and

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

whomsoever

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

does an obligatory

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

act in it as if he or she

00:02:50--> 00:02:50

has done

00:02:50--> 00:02:51

70

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

obligatory acts outside

00:02:54--> 00:02:57

and it is the month of Baha'u shahru

00:02:57--> 00:02:58

Sabr, it's the month of fasting

00:02:59--> 00:02:59

and

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

patient.

00:03:01--> 00:03:02

We have covered this in if you are

00:03:02--> 00:03:06

following our daily reminder, we covered these in

00:03:06--> 00:03:09

everyday, alhamdulillahi rabbilamin. It's the month of fasting

00:03:10--> 00:03:12

and it is the month of patient.

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

Being patient, the reward

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

is Jannah.

00:03:21--> 00:03:22

It's a month of consolation,

00:03:23--> 00:03:25

the month that the sustenance of the believer

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

will increase.

00:03:28--> 00:03:31

I'm reminding all of you, myself number 1,

00:03:31--> 00:03:33

because we have only 10 days left. If

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

we haven't done any of these yet, it's

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

time to do it. There isn't much time

00:03:37--> 00:03:37

left.

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

Not much time.

00:03:42--> 00:03:42

Whomsoever

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

will

00:03:45--> 00:03:48

whether pay money or cook, basically prepare or

00:03:48--> 00:03:49

help

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

to for a fasting person to break their

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

fast, it will be equal

00:03:55--> 00:03:57

to forgiveness of his sin, and

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

release from the hellfire.

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

And he will have the same reward of

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

fasting as the fasting,

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

person. Then people said to Rasul,

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

we don't all have this opportunity

00:04:11--> 00:04:14

to make food or to buy food or

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

to help a fasting person to break their

00:04:16--> 00:04:17

fast.

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

You will get this reward even if you

00:04:22--> 00:04:25

will use one date, or even a cup

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

of water, or even if it is,

00:04:29--> 00:04:31

a sip of a milk or a sip

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

of yogurt. And this month is the beginning

00:04:34--> 00:04:36

of it is a month of rahma, is

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

month of

00:04:38--> 00:04:40

mercy, loving mercy, and in it, in the

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

middle of it, is magfirah, is forgiveness, and

00:04:43--> 00:04:45

the end of it, and the end of

00:04:46--> 00:04:47

it, the end of it, At

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

the end of it, the last 10 days,

00:04:51--> 00:04:51

is relief

00:04:52--> 00:04:53

or release from

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

the health,

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

fire, and

00:04:56--> 00:04:58

this hadith, as we have,

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

said, it's,

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

it's a weak hadith. It's a hadith, but

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

it's a weak hadith, not very weak, but

00:05:05--> 00:05:07

it's a weak hadith. But the meanings of

00:05:07--> 00:05:09

it is being narrated in different

00:05:09--> 00:05:12

hadith. What I am trying to say in

00:05:12--> 00:05:13

the beginning,

00:05:13--> 00:05:15

the most important thing

00:05:16--> 00:05:16

in

00:05:17--> 00:05:17

Ramadan

00:05:18--> 00:05:19

is

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

we do our best,

00:05:21--> 00:05:23

and this is why we called the talk

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

today, seize the opportunity.

00:05:26--> 00:05:28

I need to look at Ramadan as an

00:05:28--> 00:05:28

opportunity,

00:05:29--> 00:05:31

let alone the last 10 nights and 10

00:05:31--> 00:05:33

days that we are going to start tomorrow.

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

It's an opportunity. And what does an opportunity

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

mean? What does an opportunity mean? Opportunity mean

00:05:40--> 00:05:42

there's something good

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

that doesn't happen every day,

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

that is

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

I am able

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

to reach it or get it,

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

and I will get in that thing, in

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

general, opportunity

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

way more than if I do the same

00:05:56--> 00:05:58

effort in another action.

00:05:58--> 00:06:01

So opportunity is, somebody will tell you, and

00:06:01--> 00:06:04

I know this is probably very easy for

00:06:04--> 00:06:06

us to understand, is when there is a

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

sale,

00:06:07--> 00:06:08

right? And they say 70%,

00:06:09--> 00:06:10

80%,

00:06:10--> 00:06:12

buy 1 get 1 free. What is that?

00:06:12--> 00:06:13

It's an opportunity

00:06:13--> 00:06:16

because the same thing I need if I

00:06:16--> 00:06:17

don't grab this opportunity,

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

I will have to work harder. I have

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

to pay more. I will get less.

00:06:22--> 00:06:23

So, opportunity,

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

number 1.

00:06:25--> 00:06:28

Let's look at all ramadan is an opportunity

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

if you compare ramadan

00:06:29--> 00:06:30

with the

00:06:31--> 00:06:33

other months of the year,

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

and the last 10 days and nights are

00:06:36--> 00:06:37

the opportunity,

00:06:38--> 00:06:42

and then inside these, the odd nights

00:06:42--> 00:06:44

is the the the opportunity

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

and specifically the 27th.

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

So what do I need to do from

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

today?

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

I need to change my mindset.

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

It's extremely important because it's difficult to do

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

things without setting up our mind.

00:07:01--> 00:07:03

I need to set up my mind that

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

number 1,

00:07:06--> 00:07:08

there is a huge reward.

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

There is a great opportunity in front of

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

me. I need to grab it.

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

That's number 1. Number 2,

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

it is not very difficult

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

and why I'm saying this? Not because we

00:07:20--> 00:07:21

are all very strong

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

because there is nothing easy but what Allah

00:07:24--> 00:07:25

makes it easy.

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

If Allah see you and me

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

really wanting to take

00:07:31--> 00:07:31

the best

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

opportunity or to take advantage of this opportunity,

00:07:35--> 00:07:38

he absolutely will make it easy for me.

00:07:38--> 00:07:40

So I need to change my mindset

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

from it's difficult,

00:07:43--> 00:07:44

I can't,

00:07:44--> 00:07:47

it's long fasting, I cannot function if I

00:07:47--> 00:07:49

don't sleep in the night, all these,

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

I need to change my mindset

00:07:52--> 00:07:54

and I'm gonna turn to Allah Subhana Wa

00:07:54--> 00:07:57

Ta'la and this is another opportunity for du'a,

00:07:57--> 00:07:57

it's supplication,

00:07:58--> 00:08:00

especially when we are fasting during the day

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

because one of the people, one of the

00:08:03--> 00:08:03

categories

00:08:04--> 00:08:06

that the du'a the categories of people,

00:08:06--> 00:08:07

their supplication

00:08:08--> 00:08:11

is responded and agreed is when they are

00:08:11--> 00:08:11

fasting.

00:08:15--> 00:08:18

The fasting person till he or she breaks

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

the fast. Till all the day in another

00:08:20--> 00:08:21

narration,

00:08:22--> 00:08:25

at the time or at the moment. So

00:08:25--> 00:08:25

today,

00:08:26--> 00:08:27

today,

00:08:27--> 00:08:30

spend your day. You have to do what

00:08:30--> 00:08:32

you have to do, but

00:08:32--> 00:08:35

keep asking Allah, you Allah make it easy.

00:08:35--> 00:08:38

You Rabbi make it the best 10 nights

00:08:38--> 00:08:40

and the best 10 days ever.

00:08:41--> 00:08:43

So change the mindset. It is not going

00:08:43--> 00:08:44

to be difficult

00:08:45--> 00:08:48

if I tell myself Allah will make it

00:08:48--> 00:08:50

easy. There is many things we do and

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

those of us who are living in the

00:08:52--> 00:08:54

western world, how many non Muslims look at

00:08:54--> 00:08:56

you and says, I cannot do that. How

00:08:56--> 00:08:58

can you for 30 days,

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

not eat and drink and nothing from

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

that time to that time? 12, 14 hours.

00:09:04--> 00:09:05

And we always answer,

00:09:06--> 00:09:07

you know what? We've been doing it for

00:09:07--> 00:09:09

years. If you try it, you will be

00:09:09--> 00:09:11

able to do it. That's what we need

00:09:11--> 00:09:12

to say to ourselves.

00:09:13--> 00:09:14

Change the mindset.

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

It's an opportunity,

00:09:15--> 00:09:18

a huge opportunity. I'll come to the details

00:09:18--> 00:09:20

in a second. I'll take you through it.

00:09:20--> 00:09:23

But number 1, there is an opportunity in

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

front of me. The opportunity comes once a

00:09:25--> 00:09:27

year only,

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

it's only in these days, SubhanAllah,

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

Allah chose it,

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

he chose these days, he didn't chose other

00:09:35--> 00:09:37

days, the hikma,

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

he's the Hakim, he's the wise

00:09:39--> 00:09:41

and he chose these so I'm going to

00:09:41--> 00:09:44

tell myself these 10 days doesn't come next

00:09:44--> 00:09:45

month

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

and doesn't come when I,

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

have time or when, the day is shorter

00:09:52--> 00:09:54

or when the night is longer, it doesn't

00:09:54--> 00:09:56

come. It comes only once a year.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

Another change mind offset

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

reminder extremely important

00:10:02--> 00:10:04

and SubhanAllah how much it helps.

00:10:05--> 00:10:07

I don't know if I'm going to have

00:10:07--> 00:10:08

this opportunity

00:10:08--> 00:10:09

again.

00:10:10--> 00:10:11

I have no idea.

00:10:15--> 00:10:16

No soul knows

00:10:17--> 00:10:18

in which land we'll die

00:10:19--> 00:10:21

or when we will die.

00:10:21--> 00:10:23

I have no idea if I am living

00:10:23--> 00:10:25

next to next Ramadan,

00:10:25--> 00:10:27

I need to tell this to myself, not

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

to people, not to the others.

00:10:30--> 00:10:31

The last 10 days don't worry about the

00:10:31--> 00:10:33

others unless you have to take care of

00:10:33--> 00:10:35

them, focus on yourself,

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

this is your opportunity, my opportunity with

00:10:41--> 00:10:41

Allah

00:10:41--> 00:10:44

I'll tell myself, I don't know if I'm

00:10:44--> 00:10:44

living.

00:10:45--> 00:10:46

I don't know if there will be another

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

Ramadan

00:10:47--> 00:10:48

and I don't know if there's gonna be

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

another later Qadr,

00:10:50--> 00:10:52

and I will add more. I don't know

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

if I'm living tomorrow.

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

Can any one of us guarantee we're going

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

to wake up tomorrow morning? No.

00:10:59--> 00:11:01

But if I will make the resolve,

00:11:01--> 00:11:04

if I will make the Himma, if I

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

will make the intention

00:11:05--> 00:11:06

that I will

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

make these 10 days

00:11:09--> 00:11:11

the best ever, I am gonna

00:11:11--> 00:11:15

have Allah Subhanu Ta'ala see the best in

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

me in these 10 days.

00:11:19--> 00:11:21

I'm gonna show Allah the best of me

00:11:21--> 00:11:23

as a servant of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:11:24--> 00:11:26

and I made it made this intention and

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

I made it sincerely

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

and tomorrow I don't wake up,

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

Allah will reward me

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

as if I have done it

00:11:36--> 00:11:38

And Allah said this concept is in the

00:11:38--> 00:11:40

Quran, it's in Surah

00:11:46--> 00:11:47

Whomsoever

00:11:47--> 00:11:50

migrate for the sake of Allah, he will

00:11:50--> 00:11:53

find in the earth its migration physically moving.

00:11:54--> 00:11:56

He will find in the earth,

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

he will find a lot of

00:12:01--> 00:12:04

expansion. You will find a lot of goodness.

00:12:10--> 00:12:11

That's the point.

00:12:15--> 00:12:16

And whomsoever

00:12:17--> 00:12:19

they leave his house

00:12:20--> 00:12:23

for the intention of migrating

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

to

00:12:24--> 00:12:27

and Rasool alaihis salatu wasalam. Then he or

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

she dies before they reach

00:12:32--> 00:12:36

Allah will reward him the reward of that

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

action.

00:12:38--> 00:12:41

And Allah All Forgiving, All Merciful, Subhanah.

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

So here I am,

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

change my mindset

00:12:45--> 00:12:46

that

00:12:46--> 00:12:49

these are the opportunity that

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

no opportunity like it, we will come to

00:12:52--> 00:12:52

it.

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

No other days

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

or nights in the year

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

like these coming 10 days

00:13:00--> 00:13:01

and no other nights

00:13:02--> 00:13:04

at all, especially the nights

00:13:04--> 00:13:07

because scholars differ that the days of the

00:13:07--> 00:13:10

first of 10 days of the hija are

00:13:10--> 00:13:11

better than the days of last 10 days

00:13:11--> 00:13:12

of Ramadan,

00:13:12--> 00:13:15

but no one disagree that the last 10

00:13:15--> 00:13:18

nights of Ramadan are the best nights of

00:13:18--> 00:13:19

the world of the time.

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

I need to remind myself, I need to

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

remind myself that

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

in these 10 nights, there is a night

00:13:28--> 00:13:30

better than 1000 months. We'll come to it

00:13:30--> 00:13:31

in a detail.

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

3,

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

it may be difficult, it may sound difficult,

00:13:36--> 00:13:39

shayyatan will make it difficult, my weakness will

00:13:39--> 00:13:41

make it difficult, but I am going to

00:13:41--> 00:13:42

be holding

00:13:42--> 00:13:45

to the awi, to the strong. I will

00:13:45--> 00:13:46

get

00:13:46--> 00:13:48

my strength from him Subhanahu

00:13:49--> 00:13:52

I will get my strength from Allah Subhanahu

00:13:52--> 00:13:54

wa ta'ala and I am going to say

00:13:54--> 00:13:56

continuous du'a from today

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

You Allah, nothing

00:14:00--> 00:14:02

is easy except what you make it easy.

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

And I and you are fasting, and the

00:14:04--> 00:14:06

dua of the fasting person is granted.

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

3, I'll make the intention from today.

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

From today,

00:14:12--> 00:14:14

I am gonna change my mindset

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

that I am gonna do the best

00:14:17--> 00:14:19

best ever, I've never done it before, I'm

00:14:19--> 00:14:20

gonna do it,

00:14:21--> 00:14:22

do my best,

00:14:22--> 00:14:25

and if I am gonna die tomorrow, Allah

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

will reward me,

00:14:26--> 00:14:27

SubhanAllah.

00:14:28--> 00:14:28

So

00:14:28--> 00:14:30

let's look at

00:14:30--> 00:14:31

what are the things

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

that we will need to do

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

specifically

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

and generally?

00:14:37--> 00:14:40

Or specifically for these 10 days that I

00:14:40--> 00:14:42

have not yet done it in the last

00:14:42--> 00:14:44

20 days? Or if I have already

00:14:45--> 00:14:47

have done it, what do I do more?

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

Alhamdulillahirrublaam.

00:14:50--> 00:14:52

Just a reminder, we will have,

00:14:52--> 00:14:55

we will open for questions and answers, so

00:14:55--> 00:14:57

you will feel free to write your questions

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

on the chat,

00:14:59--> 00:15:01

and inshallah, we will take it at the

00:15:01--> 00:15:05

end, but let's look at what is in

00:15:05--> 00:15:07

the last 10 nights.

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

What is it? What do we do? Or

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

what is the best of the creation did?

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

What did he do alayhis salatu wa salam?

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

What did he do alayhis salatu wa salam?

00:15:18--> 00:15:18

In general,

00:15:19--> 00:15:22

and this hadith was narrated by Sayida Aisha.

00:15:22--> 00:15:24

When the 10 nights

00:15:24--> 00:15:26

or the 10 last 10 days or 10

00:15:26--> 00:15:27

nights of Ramadan

00:15:27--> 00:15:28

approached,

00:15:28--> 00:15:31

which is Asna living it tomorrow.

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

What did he do?

00:15:34--> 00:15:35

Right?

00:15:38--> 00:15:39

He would

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

wake up his family, look at the word,

00:15:42--> 00:15:44

wake up, meaning it's a night It's

00:15:46--> 00:15:47

an act of worship in the night.

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

And

00:15:50--> 00:15:50

this is

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

a figure of speech, he basically

00:15:53--> 00:15:53

tied

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

the like Al Mizra, is

00:15:57--> 00:15:59

the lower part that, that you cover the

00:15:59--> 00:16:03

body. When you tie it tight, it's usually

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

used as a figure of speech that you

00:16:05--> 00:16:07

are going to be getting ready to do

00:16:07--> 00:16:08

something

00:16:08--> 00:16:09

special,

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

something not easy and you're going to be

00:16:11--> 00:16:13

focused on it.

00:16:15--> 00:16:18

And another meaning the scholars have said, this

00:16:18--> 00:16:20

means that he is absolutely

00:16:21--> 00:16:21

gonna be

00:16:22--> 00:16:23

removing himself

00:16:23--> 00:16:26

from his family and he will be focusing

00:16:26--> 00:16:28

only on Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:16:34--> 00:16:35

Number 1, I'm going to say,

00:16:36--> 00:16:37

I will say this to myself,

00:16:38--> 00:16:39

I

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

need to do my best in these 10

00:16:41--> 00:16:44

nights to stay up as much as I

00:16:44--> 00:16:44

can.

00:16:45--> 00:16:48

For those of us who are working, those

00:16:48--> 00:16:50

who cannot do it because they have things

00:16:50--> 00:16:52

to do in the morning, you will do

00:16:52--> 00:16:55

longer than what you normally do or

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

sleep

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

early, wake up before Fajr.

00:17:00--> 00:17:02

Fajr is about 5 or

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

4:40,

00:17:04--> 00:17:05

wake up before Hajar,

00:17:05--> 00:17:07

even if it is 45 minutes,

00:17:08--> 00:17:09

but the longer you stay up in the

00:17:09--> 00:17:12

night, the better and especially the odd nights,

00:17:13--> 00:17:15

especially the odd nights, and the odd nights

00:17:15--> 00:17:17

meaning the night of 21st, the night of

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

23rd,

00:17:18--> 00:17:19

the night of 25th,

00:17:20--> 00:17:21

the night of 27th,

00:17:21--> 00:17:23

and the night of 29th.

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

The night of 29th

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

is

00:17:27--> 00:17:28

one of the odd nights

00:17:28--> 00:17:30

and has even much special

00:17:31--> 00:17:33

reward than all the other nights.

00:17:33--> 00:17:35

Please pay attention to this.

00:17:36--> 00:17:37

So I am going to say what did

00:17:37--> 00:17:38

he do

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

in these 10 nights

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

that I need

00:17:42--> 00:17:45

now I'm learning and I need to practice

00:17:45--> 00:17:45

it.

00:17:47--> 00:17:49

He woke up in the night, meaning

00:17:49--> 00:17:52

the nights and the night starts after Marub.

00:17:53--> 00:17:54

He

00:17:55--> 00:17:57

and did he really need to do that?

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

All his

00:18:03--> 00:18:05

sins and what sins he did was all

00:18:05--> 00:18:06

forgiven

00:18:07--> 00:18:09

and he was the chosen by Allah Subhana

00:18:09--> 00:18:11

Wa Ta'la, yet he did it.

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

What about me and you?

00:18:14--> 00:18:16

Number 1, the night starts after mawrub.

00:18:17--> 00:18:20

I am going to be spending that night,

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

if I cannot do it all,

00:18:22--> 00:18:24

I will do as much as I can

00:18:25--> 00:18:27

in an act of worship.

00:18:28--> 00:18:29

So for the woman,

00:18:29--> 00:18:30

we're gonna

00:18:30--> 00:18:34

put the food people have to eat, clean

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

the kitchen, everything

00:18:36--> 00:18:38

and we are done here.

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

If everyone in the family

00:18:42--> 00:18:43

take a place in the house,

00:18:44--> 00:18:46

if you're not going to the masjid and

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

take a corner

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

and start act of worship, some of that

00:18:50--> 00:18:51

I will share with you,

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

everybody,

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

that house will be blessed,

00:18:55--> 00:18:57

that house will be blessed and we always

00:18:57--> 00:18:59

wonder what happened to our homes.

00:19:00--> 00:19:01

We need to bring back the barakah.

00:19:02--> 00:19:02

Please

00:19:03--> 00:19:06

don't spend eastern nights watching TV.

00:19:08--> 00:19:09

It's a loss,

00:19:09--> 00:19:11

huge loss.

00:19:11--> 00:19:12

It's like

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

someone come and tell

00:19:14--> 00:19:16

you buy this stock today,

00:19:17--> 00:19:19

tomorrow it's going to be 5 times,

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

1,000

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

times more

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

and

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

you decided not to? What a loser.

00:19:27--> 00:19:29

The last 10 nights of Ramadan Allah did

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

not created them

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

to entertain,

00:19:32--> 00:19:35

did not created them to watch TV,

00:19:35--> 00:19:36

to check,

00:19:37--> 00:19:39

social media, no.

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

I have to do what I have to

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

do, that's obligations.

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

Taking care of my family, I have to

00:19:46--> 00:19:48

work, if you do night shifts,

00:19:49--> 00:19:50

what you have to do you have to

00:19:50--> 00:19:50

do,

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

but anything else extra,

00:19:53--> 00:19:54

it's a big losers.

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

And let's come and talk a little bit

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

about what is so special

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

about

00:20:02--> 00:20:03

these 10 nights.

00:20:03--> 00:20:05

And I'm gonna share with you this hadith.

00:20:08--> 00:20:08

Also,

00:20:10--> 00:20:12

This month has come, has reached

00:20:13--> 00:20:14

you now.

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

And in it there is 1 night.

00:20:20--> 00:20:23

Better than 1,000 nights, we all know this.

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

Now,

00:20:25--> 00:20:26

what I just said,

00:20:26--> 00:20:28

see what he taught us, Arasulullah

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

Let me translate.

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

He said,

00:20:45--> 00:20:46

the month has come,

00:20:46--> 00:20:48

in it there is 1 night.

00:20:48--> 00:20:51

1 night, we don't know which night. 1

00:20:51--> 00:20:51

night

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

has

00:20:54--> 00:20:56

higher in that night,

00:20:57--> 00:21:00

better than 1000 months, we know that.

00:21:02--> 00:21:03

Whomsoever

00:21:04--> 00:21:05

was deprived,

00:21:06--> 00:21:08

please pay attention to this word, deprived

00:21:09--> 00:21:10

of that night,

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

he's deprived.

00:21:13--> 00:21:14

And

00:21:14--> 00:21:17

no one will be deprived of the goodness

00:21:18--> 00:21:20

of that night, but

00:21:20--> 00:21:21

is the real deprived.

00:21:22--> 00:21:23

What does that mean?

00:21:24--> 00:21:25

What does that mean?

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

The night has a lot of goodness.

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

Why?

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

In that night,

00:21:40--> 00:21:42

we need to feel this.

00:21:44--> 00:21:47

We don't know which 1, 21, 23rd, 25th,

00:21:47--> 00:21:49

27th, 29, Allah knows.

00:21:49--> 00:21:51

And another hadith,

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

it's Look at it or or seek it.

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

The last 7.

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

So 23rd, 25th,

00:22:01--> 00:22:02

27th,

00:22:02--> 00:22:04

29th, the last

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

7 odd nights.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

It's better than 1,000 nights. We know that.

00:22:13--> 00:22:14

Why? Why?

00:22:20--> 00:22:21

All angels,

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

all angels

00:22:24--> 00:22:26

comes down to this earth

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

in a way we don't know,

00:22:28--> 00:22:29

in a way we don't see it,

00:22:30--> 00:22:31

to the extent

00:22:31--> 00:22:34

that it has been said there will be

00:22:34--> 00:22:37

no empty space on this earth,

00:22:37--> 00:22:38

spiritually

00:22:39--> 00:22:40

for an angel.

00:22:41--> 00:22:44

It will be completely full of angels in

00:22:44--> 00:22:45

that night.

00:22:48--> 00:22:48

Whomsoever

00:22:50--> 00:22:52

is deprived from the goodness of this night,

00:22:52--> 00:22:54

how will I be deprived?

00:22:54--> 00:22:56

How you will be deprived?

00:22:56--> 00:22:57

It's the nights

00:22:58--> 00:23:00

of it's the odd nights and what I

00:23:00--> 00:23:01

am doing in the night.

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

I'm checking social media.

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

He or she is deprived.

00:23:07--> 00:23:08

What am I doing?

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

I'm watching TV.

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

Debrid.

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

What am I doing?

00:23:15--> 00:23:16

Doing things in the house that is not

00:23:16--> 00:23:19

necessary, it can be done afterward.

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

In general,

00:23:21--> 00:23:22

anything

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

I am doing

00:23:24--> 00:23:25

in that night,

00:23:25--> 00:23:26

outside

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

the act of worship,

00:23:28--> 00:23:31

that can wait, please pay attention to this,

00:23:31--> 00:23:35

can wait till I till after Ramadan,

00:23:36--> 00:23:39

I am a loser. I am deprived

00:23:40--> 00:23:43

And the abbreviation is when you are absolutely

00:23:44--> 00:23:45

it's almost destitute.

00:23:46--> 00:23:47

You lost it as we say, you lost

00:23:47--> 00:23:49

it all,

00:23:49--> 00:23:50

you lost it all.

00:23:51--> 00:23:52

And I'll share with you a hadith of

00:23:52--> 00:23:54

Rasul alaihis salatu wa salam, this is in

00:23:54--> 00:23:56

ibn Abi Hatim.

00:23:56--> 00:23:58

One of the Sahaba says, we are with

00:23:58--> 00:24:00

the Rasul alaihis salatu wa salam,

00:24:00--> 00:24:01

and he mentioned

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

4 4

00:24:14--> 00:24:15

those 4 people,

00:24:17--> 00:24:18

they worshipped

00:24:18--> 00:24:19

Allah

00:24:20--> 00:24:21

for 80 years.

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

They did

00:24:25--> 00:24:26

not disobey him even

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

in a blink of an eye.

00:24:29--> 00:24:31

And he mentioned who are these? He said,

00:24:31--> 00:24:34

Ayub, Sayyid Nayub, Sayyid Mezakariya,

00:24:34--> 00:24:35

and then Hizkail,

00:24:35--> 00:24:37

Milajuz is another

00:24:37--> 00:24:39

righteous man, and Yusha,

00:24:40--> 00:24:40

so 4.

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

What is these 4? 4 human beings,

00:24:44--> 00:24:45

from the children of Bani Israel,

00:24:46--> 00:24:47

they worshiped Allah

00:24:48--> 00:24:49

80 years, 80,

00:24:49--> 00:24:51

and they have not disobeyed Allah with a

00:24:51--> 00:24:53

blink of an eye.

00:24:54--> 00:24:56

And the companions are like, wow,

00:24:56--> 00:24:57

for Hajiba,

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

wow, really? 80 years?

00:25:01--> 00:25:02

Jibril came to Rasulullah

00:25:04--> 00:25:05

and he said,

00:25:12--> 00:25:12

Muhammad

00:25:13--> 00:25:14

your people

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

are so surprised,

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

surprised

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

that there is

00:25:20--> 00:25:21

880,

00:25:21--> 00:25:22

people,

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

and that there is people

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

who have

00:25:26--> 00:25:29

worshiped Allah for 80 years and they never

00:25:29--> 00:25:30

disobeyed him?

00:25:32--> 00:25:34

Now Jibreel is saying to Rasulullah

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

Assalam,

00:25:38--> 00:25:41

They have they are given way better than

00:25:41--> 00:25:41

this.

00:25:42--> 00:25:43

They were given

00:25:44--> 00:25:46

way better than this and then he recited

00:25:46--> 00:25:49

Sayyidina Jibril. And what did he recite?

00:25:56--> 00:25:59

So Sayyidina Jibri talked to Rasul alaihis salatu

00:25:59--> 00:26:00

wa salam and he said,

00:26:01--> 00:26:03

your people are so surprised

00:26:04--> 00:26:05

from,

00:26:05--> 00:26:06

surprised

00:26:06--> 00:26:09

from the fact that there is 4 people

00:26:09--> 00:26:11

worshiped Allah for 80 years and they not

00:26:11--> 00:26:14

disobeyed him at all, we have given them

00:26:14--> 00:26:16

better than that. This is you and me,

00:26:16--> 00:26:18

it was given to you and me, it's

00:26:18--> 00:26:21

a gift, that's why it's opportunity, it's a

00:26:21--> 00:26:24

gift. I didn't even ask for it. Allah

00:26:24--> 00:26:26

just gave it because it's Hakim and he's

00:26:26--> 00:26:26

generous.

00:26:27--> 00:26:28

Subhanah.

00:26:29--> 00:26:31

And he said they were given better and

00:26:31--> 00:26:32

he recited,

00:26:34--> 00:26:37

We have send it down in the night

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

of power.

00:26:41--> 00:26:43

That's the beauty, and what do you know

00:26:43--> 00:26:44

about?

00:26:44--> 00:26:46

Another figure of speech

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

used in the Arabic language when you want

00:26:48--> 00:26:50

to say something, woah, you don't know what

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

this is.

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

What is it?

00:26:56--> 00:26:58

You don't know what is it?

00:26:59--> 00:26:59

Astonishing.

00:27:00--> 00:27:01

And then he says,

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

It is better than 1,

00:27:06--> 00:27:06

month.

00:27:10--> 00:27:11

Acting,

00:27:13--> 00:27:16

worshiping here, worshiping Allah in that night better

00:27:16--> 00:27:18

than 1000 months,

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

worshiping Allah in it

00:27:22--> 00:27:24

more than 1 month. How generous is Allah

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

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala?

00:27:25--> 00:27:28

How generous Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala? In one

00:27:28--> 00:27:30

night, one night

00:27:30--> 00:27:32

and the night is how many hours

00:27:33--> 00:27:36

my beautiful and my dear sisters and brothers,

00:27:36--> 00:27:37

how

00:27:38--> 00:27:39

how long the nights,

00:27:40--> 00:27:41

the longest night

00:27:41--> 00:27:44

we eat, let's say 7:30 and then Pajar

00:27:44--> 00:27:47

is 5 or 8 to 5, 12, 13,

00:27:47--> 00:27:47

10 hours,

00:27:48--> 00:27:49

better than 1000 months.

00:27:50--> 00:27:53

Worship Allah in that night. That's what he

00:27:53--> 00:27:54

wants from me. Only,

00:27:56--> 00:27:57

only few hours,

00:27:58--> 00:28:01

few hours, we stay on our TV watching

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

TV and and on the internet for hours,

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

shopping,

00:28:06--> 00:28:09

surfing the net or looking social media,

00:28:10--> 00:28:12

1 that's what Allah wants from me. 1

00:28:12--> 00:28:13

night.

00:28:13--> 00:28:15

Don't be miser, I'm saying this to myself

00:28:15--> 00:28:17

and to everybody, don't be miser.

00:28:18--> 00:28:19

I am the loser.

00:28:20--> 00:28:22

We are the losers. Allah is not gonna

00:28:22--> 00:28:23

get anything

00:28:23--> 00:28:26

extra from me sleeping in the night of

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

Al Khadr or up in the night of

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

the Khadr.

00:28:29--> 00:28:32

What is Allah gonna what is Allah gonna

00:28:32--> 00:28:33

get out

00:28:34--> 00:28:35

as Abu Rasool alaihi wa sallam

00:28:36--> 00:28:37

taught us? If the

00:28:40--> 00:28:43

if your demon ins and the first

00:28:44--> 00:28:46

person Allah created and the last one, all

00:28:46--> 00:28:47

of them were Mu'taqi,

00:28:49--> 00:28:51

the sovereignty of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala will

00:28:51--> 00:28:52

not increase

00:28:52--> 00:28:53

a

00:28:53--> 00:28:54

little, a bit.

00:28:56--> 00:28:58

Allah doesn't need my Ibadah, I need it.

00:28:58--> 00:28:59

I need it

00:29:00--> 00:29:01

and we need it.

00:29:02--> 00:29:03

So a few hours,

00:29:05--> 00:29:08

and question comes in, why we don't know

00:29:08--> 00:29:10

it? Why we don't know which night it

00:29:10--> 00:29:11

is?

00:29:11--> 00:29:13

Yes, most probably

00:29:13--> 00:29:15

27th, but not for sure

00:29:16--> 00:29:18

and even some scholars will say it changes

00:29:18--> 00:29:18

every year.

00:29:19--> 00:29:21

It changes every year. Why?

00:29:21--> 00:29:22

And he said,

00:29:24--> 00:29:25

also he said,

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

He was shown which night it is, and

00:29:29--> 00:29:32

he came out to tell the Sahaba which

00:29:32--> 00:29:34

night it is, and he found 2 companions

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

arguing and the knowledge was lifted.

00:29:41--> 00:29:43

That knowledge was lifted from Rasul

00:29:44--> 00:29:45

and then he said,

00:29:48--> 00:29:50

and it could be, it's probably

00:29:51--> 00:29:53

more for you that you don't know which

00:29:53--> 00:29:55

night is it. Why? Because I'm going to

00:29:55--> 00:29:56

do more,

00:29:56--> 00:29:58

I am going to do more,

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

SubhanAllah.

00:30:02--> 00:30:04

So question, why what is why it was

00:30:04--> 00:30:07

called Al Qadr? Why it's called Ilatul Qadr?

00:30:07--> 00:30:09

It's in the Quran, true. But what does

00:30:09--> 00:30:10

it mean?

00:30:11--> 00:30:13

It's one meaning is yes, it's the night

00:30:13--> 00:30:14

of decree,

00:30:15--> 00:30:18

right? Or night of power. That's one meaning,

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

but look at the meanings.

00:30:21--> 00:30:22

Number 1, night of honor,

00:30:25--> 00:30:26

Qadr,

00:30:26--> 00:30:28

one meaning of it in the Arabic language

00:30:28--> 00:30:29

is somebody who's honorable.

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

They have Qadr, they have status, they have

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

honor.

00:30:33--> 00:30:36

So Laylatul Qadr is a knight that has

00:30:36--> 00:30:37

honor.

00:30:37--> 00:30:39

Allah chose it.

00:30:39--> 00:30:42

Yeah. SubhanAllah, when you think of this,

00:30:42--> 00:30:44

you know when you have so many options

00:30:45--> 00:30:47

and you have so many things around you,

00:30:48--> 00:30:50

but you choose to pick 1,

00:30:51--> 00:30:53

and we normally human beings choose what, what

00:30:53--> 00:30:55

we like, what is easy, what we love,

00:30:56--> 00:30:59

but Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala when he choose,

00:30:59--> 00:31:01

he choose for a hikmah and he choose

00:31:01--> 00:31:02

it.

00:31:02--> 00:31:05

I need to remind myself this so again,

00:31:05--> 00:31:06

I will keep looking at baylaqulqadr

00:31:07--> 00:31:08

completely different

00:31:08--> 00:31:10

and not one night,

00:31:10--> 00:31:11

and not one night.

00:31:12--> 00:31:14

So it is an honorable night. Allah

00:31:16--> 00:31:19

called it Qadr out of honor because Qadr,

00:31:19--> 00:31:21

one of the meaning of it is honor,

00:31:21--> 00:31:21

number 1.

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

Qadr,

00:31:24--> 00:31:26

Allah also used it, woman Qudira

00:31:27--> 00:31:29

Allah used it in the Quran, when it

00:31:29--> 00:31:31

becomes very narrow and very tight,

00:31:32--> 00:31:33

One of the meanings of Al Qadr, and

00:31:33--> 00:31:36

you know why? Because there is no space

00:31:36--> 00:31:38

on this earth, you know, there will be

00:31:38--> 00:31:40

the earth will be so tight

00:31:41--> 00:31:43

and no more room and space for the

00:31:43--> 00:31:45

angels that will be descended on that night.

00:31:48--> 00:31:49

There will be no space, it's going to

00:31:49--> 00:31:50

be so narrow

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

and so tight

00:31:52--> 00:31:55

because all the angels are coming in that

00:31:55--> 00:31:56

night. 2nd,

00:31:57--> 00:31:59

Bayatul Khadr, which we all know is the

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

night of decree,

00:32:00--> 00:32:03

where it is usually written in it.

00:32:04--> 00:32:05

Life and death,

00:32:09--> 00:32:10

who's going to go for Hajj,

00:32:12--> 00:32:13

and also sustenance.

00:32:14--> 00:32:16

So we know that. The

00:32:17--> 00:32:18

other meaning.

00:32:18--> 00:32:19

It's

00:32:20--> 00:32:23

an honorable knight, yes, but it will honor

00:32:23--> 00:32:25

the person who honors it.

00:32:27--> 00:32:28

Honor

00:32:28--> 00:32:30

the person who will honor it.

00:32:31--> 00:32:32

And what is honor?

00:32:33--> 00:32:34

What is dignity?

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

It's not money.

00:32:36--> 00:32:38

It is not status. It's not what people

00:32:38--> 00:32:41

think of me. What did Allah teaches me

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

and you about Alqadr

00:32:43--> 00:32:45

and about honor, izzah?

00:32:45--> 00:32:46

What did he say in Fataw?

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

Whomsoever

00:32:52--> 00:32:53

wants dignity,

00:32:53--> 00:32:54

seek dignity,

00:32:55--> 00:32:55

honor,

00:32:58--> 00:32:59

To Allah belongs

00:32:59--> 00:33:00

all dignity.

00:33:02--> 00:33:04

To Allah belongs all dignity. How will I

00:33:04--> 00:33:06

get the dignity from Allah? I need to

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

be close to him.

00:33:08--> 00:33:10

How do I get close to Allah Subhanahu

00:33:10--> 00:33:11

Wa Ta'ala? Worship

00:33:12--> 00:33:13

him and take opportunities,

00:33:13--> 00:33:16

take advantage of the opportunity.

00:33:16--> 00:33:20

So Laylatul Qadr, one of the meanings of

00:33:20--> 00:33:21

it, the name of it,

00:33:23--> 00:33:26

it will elevate and honor and dignify

00:33:26--> 00:33:28

the person who dignifies it,

00:33:28--> 00:33:29

the person who

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

honor it, the person who comes to it

00:33:33--> 00:33:34

with full focus,

00:33:36--> 00:33:38

and the last meaning of it.

00:33:42--> 00:33:42

In it

00:33:43--> 00:33:47

has been revealed a book, an honorable book.

00:33:47--> 00:33:48

Right?

00:33:51--> 00:33:53

What did we what did we send?

00:33:54--> 00:33:57

Al Quran. It's a night, it is honorable

00:33:57--> 00:33:58

because

00:33:59--> 00:34:01

the honorable book of Allah was

00:34:02--> 00:34:04

revealed in it, and in it, it's what

00:34:04--> 00:34:07

most scholars will say, the whole Quran was

00:34:07--> 00:34:08

revealed

00:34:08--> 00:34:11

in one part from Allahu al Maqfuh, from

00:34:11--> 00:34:12

the tablet

00:34:13--> 00:34:14

down to a down

00:34:15--> 00:34:17

to the heavens, and then over 23 years,

00:34:17--> 00:34:19

it was sent gradually

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

accordingly on the Rasool alaihi wa sallam, different

00:34:22--> 00:34:24

times and different

00:34:24--> 00:34:26

places. So

00:34:27--> 00:34:28

night of honor,

00:34:28--> 00:34:29

night of decree,

00:34:30--> 00:34:32

the night that is going to be the

00:34:32--> 00:34:34

earth will be so tight, the honor that

00:34:34--> 00:34:35

will elevate

00:34:36--> 00:34:36

the person

00:34:37--> 00:34:41

honor because he honored it, and the night

00:34:41--> 00:34:43

where the honorable book was

00:34:43--> 00:34:44

revealed

00:34:44--> 00:34:45

in

00:34:45--> 00:34:46

it.

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

And if you want to summarize it, it's

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

a night,

00:34:49--> 00:34:50

honorable,

00:34:51--> 00:34:52

and the

00:34:53--> 00:34:54

earth will be tight

00:34:55--> 00:34:56

and the angels

00:34:57--> 00:34:57

coming

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

bringing all Allah's mercy,

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

in it will be the decrees

00:35:03--> 00:35:07

and every human being will be elevated and

00:35:07--> 00:35:07

honored

00:35:08--> 00:35:10

on how much he or she does in

00:35:10--> 00:35:12

it or honor it, Allahu'ala.

00:35:14--> 00:35:15

What is the signs?

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

There are signs

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

the scholars

00:35:18--> 00:35:18

said,

00:35:21--> 00:35:22

Insha'Allah, let's

00:35:23--> 00:35:23

hope

00:35:25--> 00:35:26

that we will know

00:35:26--> 00:35:29

that the issue is and see how Allah's

00:35:29--> 00:35:30

hikma works.

00:35:32--> 00:35:33

You don't know

00:35:33--> 00:35:35

the sign of the night of Al Qadr

00:35:35--> 00:35:36

except the next morning.

00:35:38--> 00:35:39

So

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

I need to grab or seize the opportunity

00:35:42--> 00:35:44

because by the time I will know it

00:35:44--> 00:35:46

was last night, it's too late.

00:35:47--> 00:35:49

And Allah has his own ways

00:35:50--> 00:35:50

of

00:35:52--> 00:35:53

arranging things SubhanAllah,

00:35:54--> 00:35:56

he could easily have gave me the signs

00:35:56--> 00:36:00

before the night start, No, it's he gave

00:36:00--> 00:36:01

me the signs after.

00:36:01--> 00:36:03

What is the sign? They say

00:36:03--> 00:36:05

the sun will rise

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

that morning

00:36:06--> 00:36:07

with no rays,

00:36:08--> 00:36:11

no rays will be so clear

00:36:12--> 00:36:15

and scholars say, and this is actually amazing

00:36:16--> 00:36:19

is is an Imam Shirkrit, sheikh Shirkrit, he's

00:36:19--> 00:36:22

a contemporary scholar, he's amazing, he has beautiful

00:36:22--> 00:36:25

tafsir of the Quran, not complete, unfortunately.

00:36:26--> 00:36:29

He says the reason that the sun has

00:36:29--> 00:36:31

no rays will be so pure because all

00:36:31--> 00:36:32

these angels

00:36:32--> 00:36:34

that were on the earth,

00:36:34--> 00:36:36

they will be going up

00:36:37--> 00:36:39

before or as the sun rises

00:36:39--> 00:36:42

and they will block the rays of the

00:36:42--> 00:36:43

sun. Allahu'ala,

00:36:43--> 00:36:44

Allahu'ala,

00:36:46--> 00:36:47

but usually

00:36:47--> 00:36:49

this is one of the signs,

00:36:50--> 00:36:51

in it.

00:36:52--> 00:36:55

What things I can do in these 10

00:36:55--> 00:36:55

days including

00:36:56--> 00:36:58

so the first thing I wanted to share

00:36:58--> 00:36:59

with you all of you, inshallah,

00:37:00--> 00:37:01

Allah helps me is to

00:37:02--> 00:37:03

change our mindset

00:37:03--> 00:37:05

about these nights

00:37:05--> 00:37:07

because I don't know which one is the

00:37:07--> 00:37:08

night of Alakadir.

00:37:08--> 00:37:09

We need to change,

00:37:13--> 00:37:14

our mindset.

00:37:16--> 00:37:18

I need to look at from tomorrow night.

00:37:20--> 00:37:22

Is going to be completely different.

00:37:22--> 00:37:24

I'll give you an example. May Allah forgive

00:37:24--> 00:37:27

us, but sometimes examples from our daily life

00:37:28--> 00:37:28

help

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

us. If I have

00:37:31--> 00:37:34

the most important exam of my life

00:37:35--> 00:37:37

or deadline of my life

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

or interview of my life,

00:37:40--> 00:37:40

and that

00:37:41--> 00:37:42

exam or that

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

project

00:37:44--> 00:37:44

due

00:37:45--> 00:37:48

on 13th or 14th, meaning the day of

00:37:48--> 00:37:48

Eid.

00:37:49--> 00:37:51

What will I do the 10 days before

00:37:51--> 00:37:53

it? Will I be watching TV?

00:37:53--> 00:37:55

Will I be going out with my friends?

00:37:56--> 00:37:58

Or what are we going to normally say?

00:37:58--> 00:37:59

I have an exam,

00:38:01--> 00:38:03

I can't do anything, we will do everything

00:38:03--> 00:38:03

after,

00:38:06--> 00:38:07

I need to focus,

00:38:07--> 00:38:10

this is my opportunity. If I don't pass

00:38:10--> 00:38:12

this exam, I'm done. If I don't get

00:38:12--> 00:38:14

this job, I am done. If I don't,

00:38:17--> 00:38:20

deliver the program or the project on time,

00:38:20--> 00:38:22

I'm in big trouble. I lose,

00:38:22--> 00:38:23

seize the opportunity.

00:38:24--> 00:38:25

These are the 10 days.

00:38:26--> 00:38:28

SubhanAllah, some of the teachers I have seen,

00:38:28--> 00:38:30

some of the advices I was given is

00:38:30--> 00:38:32

like even for us women,

00:38:32--> 00:38:34

even for us women, don't spend too much

00:38:34--> 00:38:36

time on cooking

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

in these days, in these nights because you

00:38:38--> 00:38:39

will get tired.

00:38:40--> 00:38:42

Remember, we are human beings, we need energy.

00:38:43--> 00:38:45

So they say, even

00:38:45--> 00:38:49

get everything ready, for sure gifts for Eid,

00:38:49--> 00:38:51

everything related to aid, get it done today

00:38:51--> 00:38:53

and tomorrow or the day of Eid.

00:38:54--> 00:38:57

Don't waste the energy because we have we

00:38:57--> 00:38:59

don't have a lot, a lot. We have

00:38:59--> 00:39:00

limited energy.

00:39:00--> 00:39:02

So we really need to look at these

00:39:02--> 00:39:04

10 days, the opportunity.

00:39:05--> 00:39:06

What do we do? What did he do

00:39:06--> 00:39:08

as I said earlier?

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

Very unique

00:39:12--> 00:39:13

act of worship

00:39:14--> 00:39:16

to the 10 days, last 10 days of

00:39:16--> 00:39:17

Ramadan, unique,

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

only

00:39:20--> 00:39:20

specifically

00:39:21--> 00:39:24

did it in these 10 nights is Al

00:39:24--> 00:39:25

Atikaf.

00:39:26--> 00:39:27

Seclusion.

00:39:28--> 00:39:30

Seclusion. What does that mean?

00:39:32--> 00:39:33

In general is in the Masjid,

00:39:34--> 00:39:35

and Allah said this in

00:39:38--> 00:39:41

Don't get close to them, he's talking to

00:39:41--> 00:39:41

the men,

00:39:42--> 00:39:44

meaning when you are in state of atika

00:39:44--> 00:39:47

in the Masjid, that's you are not going

00:39:47--> 00:39:49

to be coming having your relationship with the

00:39:50--> 00:39:51

with your wife.

00:39:51--> 00:39:52

What does that tell you?

00:39:53--> 00:39:55

A scholar says Atikafri Masjid

00:39:55--> 00:39:56

in general,

00:39:57--> 00:39:58

general

00:39:58--> 00:39:58

Iatikaf,

00:39:59--> 00:40:02

seclusion is in the Masjid. Okay, how about

00:40:02--> 00:40:03

now?

00:40:03--> 00:40:05

Allah tested us.

00:40:06--> 00:40:07

How about woman

00:40:07--> 00:40:09

can't? She has family

00:40:09--> 00:40:11

or she normally doesn't go to the Masjid.

00:40:13--> 00:40:14

What do we do?

00:40:14--> 00:40:17

There is always, SubhanAllah, there's always solution for

00:40:17--> 00:40:18

everything

00:40:18--> 00:40:20

because Allah makes it. SubhanAllah.

00:40:22--> 00:40:23

For those

00:40:25--> 00:40:27

and let's let's go about the tikaf first

00:40:27--> 00:40:28

and then we'll come to that. So what

00:40:28--> 00:40:29

is that tikaf?

00:40:30--> 00:40:31

Seclusion.

00:40:31--> 00:40:32

What is Atikaf?

00:40:33--> 00:40:36

Atikaf is an haps, they call it.

00:40:36--> 00:40:38

You hold, it's like saber,

00:40:39--> 00:40:41

you hold, you actually disconnect.

00:40:42--> 00:40:44

Yeah, takafah, disconnect.

00:40:45--> 00:40:46

What does it mean?

00:40:46--> 00:40:47

I am going to be

00:40:48--> 00:40:48

as

00:40:49--> 00:40:50

a

00:40:50--> 00:40:51

human being,

00:40:52--> 00:40:55

Hayfa, Sara, Muhammad Ali. I'm gonna be

00:40:56--> 00:40:56

disconnecting

00:40:57--> 00:40:57

myself

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

willingly

00:41:00--> 00:41:03

as an act to get close to Allah

00:41:03--> 00:41:05

from everything else

00:41:06--> 00:41:06

in

00:41:07--> 00:41:10

the life that I normally do it, except

00:41:10--> 00:41:11

the obligation

00:41:11--> 00:41:12

and the necessities.

00:41:14--> 00:41:15

Obligations and necessities.

00:41:16--> 00:41:17

What did he do

00:41:20--> 00:41:21

What did he do

00:41:23--> 00:41:24

that's how they said.

00:41:24--> 00:41:25

When the 10

00:41:26--> 00:41:28

days or the 10 nights approached

00:41:28--> 00:41:29

he entered

00:41:30--> 00:41:32

he was actually in the Masjid itself, he

00:41:32--> 00:41:34

had like a small tent

00:41:34--> 00:41:37

and he goes and stay in that tent

00:41:37--> 00:41:40

all day, comes out only for salah

00:41:40--> 00:41:42

and to leave,

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

to respond to the call of nature

00:41:46--> 00:41:47

and food delivered to him.

00:41:49--> 00:41:50

That's the example,

00:41:51--> 00:41:53

that's what I am looking at,

00:41:53--> 00:41:54

that's my

00:42:00--> 00:42:01

Usua. You have

00:42:01--> 00:42:04

in the example of Rasulullah Surah Alaihi Wasallam

00:42:04--> 00:42:06

the best example, that's what Allah

00:42:07--> 00:42:09

taught you and me in the Quran, Surah

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

Al Azab.

00:42:10--> 00:42:12

So what did he do? That's what he

00:42:12--> 00:42:13

did.

00:42:13--> 00:42:14

This is the

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

A plus

00:42:16--> 00:42:17

this is the goal,

00:42:18--> 00:42:20

the whole 10 nights by the way

00:42:20--> 00:42:23

and in the year he died, he did

00:42:23--> 00:42:24

it for 20 days.

00:42:26--> 00:42:28

Now let's come to us practically.

00:42:29--> 00:42:30

Number 1,

00:42:30--> 00:42:32

I am going to be disconnecting

00:42:33--> 00:42:34

from anything

00:42:35--> 00:42:36

that is not necessary.

00:42:37--> 00:42:39

And the number one,

00:42:40--> 00:42:42

what they teach is you and me

00:42:42--> 00:42:44

in Rehte Kaaf

00:42:44--> 00:42:45

is you hold your tongue.

00:42:48--> 00:42:51

Much and much and much and much and

00:42:51--> 00:42:52

much and much

00:42:53--> 00:42:53

less

00:42:53--> 00:42:54

less

00:42:54--> 00:42:55

less

00:42:55--> 00:42:56

less

00:42:56--> 00:42:58

talk. And actually one of the names of

00:42:58--> 00:43:00

Ramadan that we will be covering

00:43:00--> 00:43:01

is Sharusamt,

00:43:01--> 00:43:03

is the month of silence.

00:43:04--> 00:43:05

So Iitikaf,

00:43:06--> 00:43:07

practically,

00:43:08--> 00:43:08

you take

00:43:09--> 00:43:11

a part let's talk about the house. You

00:43:11--> 00:43:14

take a part in the house, usually preferably

00:43:14--> 00:43:15

is where you normally

00:43:15--> 00:43:16

pray.

00:43:16--> 00:43:19

You normally pray. If the way you usually

00:43:19--> 00:43:21

pray is a place that is not going

00:43:21--> 00:43:21

to be private

00:43:22--> 00:43:23

for you,

00:43:23--> 00:43:25

then you choose a place in the house,

00:43:27--> 00:43:29

a small room, a corner, where you will

00:43:29--> 00:43:30

have your privacy

00:43:31--> 00:43:33

and you will be easily disconnected

00:43:34--> 00:43:34

from around you.

00:43:36--> 00:43:36

No talk,

00:43:37--> 00:43:38

unless necessary.

00:43:38--> 00:43:40

And I'm gonna come to certain circumstances and

00:43:40--> 00:43:42

I'm talking now in general.

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

If it was the norm, the usual time

00:43:45--> 00:43:47

and we are in the masjid,

00:43:47--> 00:43:49

then that's exactly what it is. Tikab is

00:43:49--> 00:43:52

not sitting with people in the masjid, chit

00:43:52--> 00:43:53

and chatting what's happening

00:43:54--> 00:43:56

with the news or what are you going

00:43:56--> 00:43:57

to do for Eid, that's not Ihtikaaf.

00:43:58--> 00:44:00

As some say, that's sleepover.

00:44:00--> 00:44:02

Atikaaf is not sleepover.

00:44:02--> 00:44:03

Atikaaf,

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

I

00:44:05--> 00:44:06

am giving my time,

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

myself,

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

my comfort

00:44:11--> 00:44:14

to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. That's what I

00:44:14--> 00:44:15

cut

00:44:16--> 00:44:16

everything.

00:44:16--> 00:44:18

So you choose a place in the house,

00:44:19--> 00:44:21

you choose a place in the house.

00:44:21--> 00:44:24

Tikaf usually starts, if you are doing the

00:44:24--> 00:44:27

whole 10 days, usually starts from the Maghrib

00:44:27--> 00:44:29

of the night of 21, 21st. So for

00:44:29--> 00:44:32

us in the United States, if you all

00:44:32--> 00:44:34

fasted with Makkah, then it is going to

00:44:34--> 00:44:36

be tomorrow, Sunday, from Maghrib.

00:44:36--> 00:44:37

Get

00:44:38--> 00:44:40

He or she goes to her place of

00:44:40--> 00:44:40

Ihtikaaf,

00:44:41--> 00:44:43

leaves it to again,

00:44:43--> 00:44:45

necessary things, If you have someone that brings

00:44:45--> 00:44:48

you food to your place, that's usually, if

00:44:48--> 00:44:49

not you go and eat and come back,

00:44:49--> 00:44:51

but mainly it's the

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

very minimum

00:44:53--> 00:44:56

things that you have to do. That's the

00:44:56--> 00:44:58

ideal, of course, the ideal is in the

00:44:58--> 00:44:58

masjid.

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

How about I can't do that,

00:45:02--> 00:45:04

I can't do it, I have to go

00:45:04--> 00:45:04

to work.

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

I couldn't take time off. I can't take

00:45:07--> 00:45:09

time off. I have to take care of

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

my children.

00:45:10--> 00:45:11

I have to take care of my family,

00:45:12--> 00:45:13

then do at least

00:45:13--> 00:45:15

part of the night

00:45:15--> 00:45:16

with the meal of Atika.

00:45:17--> 00:45:18

Like after Isha,

00:45:19--> 00:45:21

after Isha, we took care of everything in

00:45:21--> 00:45:22

the house, Alhamdulillah.

00:45:22--> 00:45:25

We ate, kitchen is clean, we did everything,

00:45:25--> 00:45:26

after Isha.

00:45:27--> 00:45:28

Go to that corner,

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

sit there

00:45:31--> 00:45:32

and disconnect

00:45:33--> 00:45:36

from everything else and number one disconnection is

00:45:36--> 00:45:36

this,

00:45:38--> 00:45:40

unless of course you are on call or

00:45:40--> 00:45:42

you have something then leave it only to

00:45:42--> 00:45:44

be to ring, but remove the Internet.

00:45:45--> 00:45:47

I need to completely disconnect. What did I

00:45:47--> 00:45:49

say earlier? I need to show Allah the

00:45:49--> 00:45:51

best in me and the best in me

00:45:51--> 00:45:53

I'm giving up You Allah, all these I

00:45:53--> 00:45:55

usually do and enjoy

00:45:55--> 00:45:57

like we have given up food and drink

00:45:58--> 00:46:00

for all these 20 days and the next

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

10 days. Now I am giving higher you

00:46:02--> 00:46:04

Allah and harder.

00:46:04--> 00:46:05

My comfort,

00:46:06--> 00:46:09

my joy, the things I normally like and

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

entertain

00:46:10--> 00:46:11

for you only.

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

For you only.

00:46:14--> 00:46:16

So either you do with the whole,

00:46:16--> 00:46:18

if you can. If you cannot, can you

00:46:18--> 00:46:20

do the nights? The odd nights?

00:46:21--> 00:46:22

The odd nights?

00:46:23--> 00:46:24

If you cannot, can you do

00:46:25--> 00:46:27

part of the night? But definitely,

00:46:27--> 00:46:28

definitely

00:46:28--> 00:46:29

make sure

00:46:30--> 00:46:32

you have in these coming nights,

00:46:32--> 00:46:34

in these coming nights,

00:46:34--> 00:46:35

every night,

00:46:35--> 00:46:37

there is a time for

00:46:40--> 00:46:42

the beauty of it, what it does to

00:46:42--> 00:46:43

the heart,

00:46:44--> 00:46:45

how it clears the heart

00:46:46--> 00:46:47

is something

00:46:47--> 00:46:48

beyond,

00:46:48--> 00:46:50

and I have seen it with my own

00:46:50--> 00:46:53

eyes when Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala blessed me

00:46:53--> 00:46:54

to do it in the Haram,

00:46:55--> 00:46:56

in Makkah,

00:46:56--> 00:46:59

the night when they announced tomorrow, Zaid, I

00:46:59--> 00:47:00

have seen woman,

00:47:00--> 00:47:01

woman

00:47:01--> 00:47:03

sob like a baby

00:47:04--> 00:47:05

because Ramadan is done

00:47:06--> 00:47:07

and this spiritual

00:47:08--> 00:47:10

atmosphere that we lived in is done.

00:47:11--> 00:47:13

Cleansing, it cleans us,

00:47:14--> 00:47:16

like literally, like we go and take a

00:47:16--> 00:47:16

shower,

00:47:17--> 00:47:19

when we obey Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala constantly,

00:47:19--> 00:47:21

specially when it is difficult,

00:47:21--> 00:47:24

especially when it's I've not done it before,

00:47:24--> 00:47:27

especially when there is challenges in it, it

00:47:27--> 00:47:27

clears

00:47:28--> 00:47:30

and cleans the heart like there is a

00:47:30--> 00:47:32

soap in it, SubhanAllah.

00:47:33--> 00:47:34

So Atikaf,

00:47:35--> 00:47:37

what do I do in it?

00:47:38--> 00:47:39

Salah,

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

the obligations,

00:47:41--> 00:47:42

extras,

00:47:42--> 00:47:43

extras,

00:47:43--> 00:47:44

extras.

00:47:46--> 00:47:49

What did we learn? Alhamdulillah, you have heard

00:47:49--> 00:47:51

this hadith many times, many times.

00:47:56--> 00:47:57

Whomsoever

00:47:57--> 00:47:58

fasted Ramadan

00:47:59--> 00:48:02

out of faith and waiting for the reward

00:48:02--> 00:48:04

with certainty in the reward, and who spend

00:48:04--> 00:48:06

the night up

00:48:06--> 00:48:07

praying

00:48:09--> 00:48:11

out of faith and waiting for the reward.

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

Since

00:48:16--> 00:48:16

previously,

00:48:17--> 00:48:20

previously done, sins are

00:48:21--> 00:48:21

gone,

00:48:22--> 00:48:22

removed,

00:48:22--> 00:48:23

forgiven.

00:48:24--> 00:48:25

So what do I do?

00:48:26--> 00:48:28

I alternate between the

00:48:28--> 00:48:29

I alternate

00:48:29--> 00:48:32

between the acts of worship. Human beings in

00:48:32--> 00:48:34

general, by nature, we get bored.

00:48:35--> 00:48:37

We get bored easily, so change it.

00:48:38--> 00:48:40

Spend time in salah. Well, I don't know

00:48:40--> 00:48:42

much of the Quran. Alhamdulillah,

00:48:43--> 00:48:45

Have the Quran in your hand and read.

00:48:45--> 00:48:45

Read.

00:48:46--> 00:48:47

Read. 1.

00:48:47--> 00:48:49

Make longer. Don't

00:48:49--> 00:48:50

say

00:48:51--> 00:48:52

make

00:48:52--> 00:48:55

longer 10, 15, I've seen I've seen people

00:48:55--> 00:48:56

does 2025

00:48:56--> 00:48:57

in 1,

00:48:59--> 00:49:00

Go for a

00:49:00--> 00:49:02

long sudud as much as you can.

00:49:03--> 00:49:05

I am and you in sudud closest to

00:49:05--> 00:49:07

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala,

00:49:08--> 00:49:10

Closest to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala?

00:49:11--> 00:49:12

All your dua,

00:49:12--> 00:49:14

all what you want from Allah, in Dunia

00:49:14--> 00:49:15

and Akhirah.

00:49:15--> 00:49:17

Don't you want Allah to forgive you? Yes,

00:49:17--> 00:49:19

of course. Don't I want Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:49:19--> 00:49:21

Ta'ala to forgive me? Yes. Don't I want

00:49:21--> 00:49:23

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala to give me a

00:49:23--> 00:49:25

good end? Yes. Do I want Allah Subhanahu

00:49:25--> 00:49:27

Wa Ta'ala to bless my children?

00:49:27--> 00:49:29

Yes. Do I want Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:49:29--> 00:49:31

to bless my family and home? Yes. Give

00:49:31--> 00:49:35

me rus'an hala, it gives gives me lawful

00:49:35--> 00:49:36

sustenance?

00:49:36--> 00:49:37

Yes.

00:49:37--> 00:49:40

Give me good health? Yes. On and on

00:49:40--> 00:49:42

and on. Don't I want Allah Subhanahu Wa

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

Ta'ala

00:49:43--> 00:49:45

to make it easy death for me? So

00:49:45--> 00:49:47

I remember you llah when I die.

00:49:48--> 00:49:50

Don't I want to have my grave

00:49:51--> 00:49:52

as a piece of Jannah?

00:49:53--> 00:49:55

Don't I want to enter Jannah? Don't I

00:49:55--> 00:49:56

want to see Rasulullah

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

Don't I want Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala to

00:49:59--> 00:50:01

take my accountability

00:50:01--> 00:50:04

or reckoning is much easier? There's a long

00:50:04--> 00:50:07

list of things. You don't have to have

00:50:07--> 00:50:08

memorized all the duas,

00:50:09--> 00:50:13

all the duas, ask Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:50:13--> 00:50:16

anything you want as long as it's halal

00:50:16--> 00:50:18

and the best time is in your sujud,

00:50:19--> 00:50:20

long, don't count

00:50:21--> 00:50:23

Oh, I'm gonna do 20, I'm gonna do

00:50:23--> 00:50:26

100, is not the amount, it's the quality,

00:50:26--> 00:50:27

what are you giving Allah

00:50:29--> 00:50:31

You can do a 100 and long ones,

00:50:32--> 00:50:34

but focus on the quality,

00:50:35--> 00:50:37

focus on giving Allah again as we said

00:50:37--> 00:50:39

in the beginning, give Allah the best in

00:50:39--> 00:50:40

you and in me.

00:50:42--> 00:50:44

So long standing, we will get tired. Yes,

00:50:44--> 00:50:45

we will.

00:50:46--> 00:50:48

Then sit in the kir of Allah Subhanahu

00:50:48--> 00:50:49

wa Ta'ala,

00:50:52--> 00:50:53

a lot of Istighfar,

00:50:57--> 00:50:58

Then read Quran.

00:50:59--> 00:51:00

Read Quran.

00:51:02--> 00:51:02

Reflect

00:51:04--> 00:51:05

on yourself.

00:51:05--> 00:51:07

Reflect on your heart.

00:51:07--> 00:51:08

What is in it?

00:51:09--> 00:51:10

What is in it?

00:51:10--> 00:51:13

Reflect on your life. Where am I going?

00:51:13--> 00:51:15

How much left? What's going to happen to

00:51:15--> 00:51:16

me? All these

00:51:17--> 00:51:20

becomes easier and easier when you are away

00:51:20--> 00:51:21

from distractions.

00:51:21--> 00:51:22

Now,

00:51:24--> 00:51:26

the best dua that everybody

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

needs to memorize,

00:51:28--> 00:51:30

it's a very short one,

00:51:31--> 00:51:33

where Sayida Aisha, the scholar,

00:51:34--> 00:51:35

asked Rasulullah

00:51:36--> 00:51:37

What a question,

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

what a blessing

00:51:39--> 00:51:41

that she asked and what a blessing we

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

have Rasulullah

00:51:43--> 00:51:44

who taught us. She said,

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

How about if I knew

00:51:53--> 00:51:56

this is the night of Laylatul Qadr?

00:51:59--> 00:52:00

Imagine,

00:52:00--> 00:52:01

think of it,

00:52:01--> 00:52:04

Someone comes to you and tells you tonight,

00:52:06--> 00:52:07

what should I say?

00:52:08--> 00:52:10

And this is probably questions many of you

00:52:11--> 00:52:13

have it. What do I do? What do

00:52:13--> 00:52:15

I say? She asked him. Mada'aqul.

00:52:16--> 00:52:19

Basically, what do I ask? What did he

00:52:19--> 00:52:19

say?

00:52:20--> 00:52:21

Please memorize this one.

00:52:30--> 00:52:31

You are

00:52:32--> 00:52:33

the one who pardon.

00:52:34--> 00:52:35

Not only forgive.

00:52:38--> 00:52:39

Forgive.

00:52:39--> 00:52:40

Pardon.

00:52:40--> 00:52:42

We don't talk about it. We don't think

00:52:42--> 00:52:43

about it. We don't think about it. You

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

love

00:52:46--> 00:52:47

to pardon.

00:52:48--> 00:52:51

You're glorifying Allah now. So it's not only

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

you are the one who pardon and forgive,

00:52:54--> 00:52:56

but you love to

00:52:56--> 00:52:58

forgive and pardon, please

00:53:00--> 00:53:00

forgive me.

00:53:01--> 00:53:03

Please pardon me. That's it.

00:53:04--> 00:53:05

How difficult.

00:53:06--> 00:53:07

How hard.

00:53:07--> 00:53:09

Now you know the reason.

00:53:11--> 00:53:13

The one who will be deprived

00:53:13--> 00:53:16

from the goodness in that night will be

00:53:16--> 00:53:16

deprived.

00:53:18--> 00:53:20

Simple dua, one line

00:53:24--> 00:53:25

You have it on your screen.

00:53:27--> 00:53:29

You Allah, you are the one who pardon.

00:53:29--> 00:53:30

Pardon.

00:53:30--> 00:53:31

You love.

00:53:33--> 00:53:36

Forgive me. Pardon me. Memorize it.

00:53:37--> 00:53:39

Memorize it. So I will not be of

00:53:39--> 00:53:40

those who are deprived.

00:53:41--> 00:53:43

No, I don't. This is what I am

00:53:43--> 00:53:45

going to say to myself from today.

00:53:45--> 00:53:46

You Allah.

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

You Allah, don't make me from among those

00:53:51--> 00:53:52

who are

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

deprived.

00:53:56--> 00:53:57

One of the beautiful

00:54:06--> 00:54:08

Imam Ibn Uqayim, now in the last 10

00:54:08--> 00:54:10

days, this is during the day, so Imam

00:54:10--> 00:54:12

Ibn Uqayim say this about his teacher,

00:54:13--> 00:54:14

Sheikh He

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

said,

00:54:16--> 00:54:17

one time

00:54:17--> 00:54:18

I sat

00:54:18--> 00:54:20

and I watched my teacher,

00:54:20--> 00:54:22

Ibn Taymiyyah, he prayed Fajr.

00:54:23--> 00:54:23

Now again,

00:54:24--> 00:54:25

what I am sharing with you,

00:54:26--> 00:54:28

if you can do it every day, Rabidaqalhamd.

00:54:28--> 00:54:30

If you cannot, at least in the weekend,

00:54:30--> 00:54:31

there will

00:54:31--> 00:54:34

be weekend in this 10 days, Alhamdulillah next

00:54:34--> 00:54:36

Saturday Sunday. So what did he say? He

00:54:36--> 00:54:39

said I saw Ibn Taymiyyah, my teacher, praying

00:54:39--> 00:54:39

Fajr

00:54:39--> 00:54:41

and then he stayed

00:54:41--> 00:54:41

remembering

00:54:42--> 00:54:45

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala almost to noontime,

00:54:46--> 00:54:47

to noontime.

00:54:48--> 00:54:49

Meaning,

00:54:50--> 00:54:52

one day, I am gonna try to do

00:54:52--> 00:54:53

that,

00:54:53--> 00:54:55

even if in between, I will take a

00:54:55--> 00:54:57

break and a small nap

00:54:57--> 00:55:00

with the intention of getting stronger, I will

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

be rewarded. But for him, he was up

00:55:03--> 00:55:03

till

00:55:04--> 00:55:04

noon

00:55:05--> 00:55:05

and then

00:55:06--> 00:55:08

he looked at me, so

00:55:08--> 00:55:10

the Imam Ibn Taymiy looked at Abu Al

00:55:10--> 00:55:13

Qayyim, his student and he said, this is

00:55:13--> 00:55:14

my food

00:55:14--> 00:55:15

of the morning

00:55:16--> 00:55:18

and if I don't eat in the morning

00:55:18--> 00:55:19

I'll get weak.

00:55:21--> 00:55:21

SubhanAllah.

00:55:23--> 00:55:25

This is my food for the morning

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

and if I don't eat

00:55:27--> 00:55:28

the food in the morning

00:55:29--> 00:55:30

I will be weak.

00:55:31--> 00:55:33

We say this about coffee and we say

00:55:33--> 00:55:35

this about breakfast and we say this about

00:55:35--> 00:55:36

this and this,

00:55:37--> 00:55:40

so I'm gonna do I'm gonna make a

00:55:40--> 00:55:40

schedule

00:55:41--> 00:55:42

that I'm going to do these things in

00:55:42--> 00:55:44

the day, I'm going to do these things

00:55:44--> 00:55:46

in the night. Dhikr of Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:55:46--> 00:55:48

Ta'ala does not require anything,

00:55:48--> 00:55:51

You can do it with your working in

00:55:51--> 00:55:53

between, you can do it with your driving,

00:55:53--> 00:55:55

you can do it with your cooking, your

00:55:55--> 00:55:57

cleaning, even going to bed, you do it.

00:55:58--> 00:55:59

SubhanAllah.

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

One of the things you do it in

00:56:01--> 00:56:02

these 10 days,

00:56:03--> 00:56:04

and in the nights especially,

00:56:05--> 00:56:06

wait

00:56:07--> 00:56:08

for the salah.

00:56:08--> 00:56:09

Or,

00:56:10--> 00:56:12

I'm sorry. Yeah. Wait for the salah, from

00:56:12--> 00:56:15

salah. So wait for salah to Ulfajar. Sit.

00:56:15--> 00:56:16

Wait for salah to Ulfajar.

00:56:17--> 00:56:19

Wait. Don't wake up, it's like, oh, 2

00:56:19--> 00:56:20

minutes. No.

00:56:20--> 00:56:22

We're gonna try to be up all night

00:56:23--> 00:56:23

and wait,

00:56:24--> 00:56:26

sit and wait for the salah during the

00:56:26--> 00:56:28

day, if you can, again,

00:56:29--> 00:56:30

next weekend,

00:56:30--> 00:56:32

if you are not working,

00:56:32--> 00:56:35

from Wuhr to Hasr, wait, sit down,

00:56:36--> 00:56:38

bring your Quran in your Musalah, where you

00:56:38--> 00:56:40

are going to be making your Atikaf, bring

00:56:40--> 00:56:43

your Quran and your Niyah, not only Atikaf,

00:56:43--> 00:56:45

but you are waiting from 1 salah to

00:56:45--> 00:56:47

the other. Why? Because I'm going to share

00:56:47--> 00:56:49

with you this. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala will

00:56:49--> 00:56:50

say,

00:56:51--> 00:56:51

the

00:56:52--> 00:56:54

one who sits in their

00:56:54--> 00:56:57

Musalla, in their place of salah, waiting for

00:56:57--> 00:57:00

another Salah as if he is neighbor of

00:57:00--> 00:57:02

Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:57:02--> 00:57:02

Ta'ala

00:57:03--> 00:57:04

SubhanAllah,

00:57:04--> 00:57:06

as if he is neighbor of Allah Subhanahu

00:57:06--> 00:57:08

Wa Ta'ala and this is said,

00:57:10--> 00:57:12

Allah will call on the day of judgment,

00:57:12--> 00:57:13

Where are my neighbors?

00:57:15--> 00:57:16

Imagine this.

00:57:17--> 00:57:18

Allah on the day of judgment

00:57:19--> 00:57:21

will say, where are my neighbors? Where are

00:57:21--> 00:57:22

they? Where is where are my neighbors?

00:57:26--> 00:57:29

And the angels will say, our Lord, who

00:57:29--> 00:57:30

can be your neighbor?

00:57:32--> 00:57:33

And he says,

00:57:34--> 00:57:35

those who

00:57:36--> 00:57:37

have fulfilled

00:57:37--> 00:57:38

and flourished

00:57:38--> 00:57:39

Masajid,

00:57:40--> 00:57:43

meaning they are in salah and especially waiting

00:57:43--> 00:57:44

from

00:57:45--> 00:57:46

1 salah to the

00:57:47--> 00:57:50

other, from 1 salah to the other.

00:57:52--> 00:57:53

One of the things we also have to

00:57:53--> 00:57:54

remember,

00:57:56--> 00:57:58

don't be of those who Rasool alaihi wasallahu

00:57:58--> 00:57:59

wasallam said

00:58:03--> 00:58:05

Let us not be of those who Rasul

00:58:05--> 00:58:06

'Alaihi Wasallam

00:58:06--> 00:58:09

on the day of judgment will say you

00:58:09--> 00:58:09

Allah

00:58:10--> 00:58:11

my people

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

neglected

00:58:12--> 00:58:13

this Quran.

00:58:15--> 00:58:17

Let us not be of those and neglecting

00:58:17--> 00:58:19

the Quran is many levels, number 1, we

00:58:19--> 00:58:22

don't know it, we don't read it,

00:58:22--> 00:58:24

we don't understand it,

00:58:24--> 00:58:26

we don't practice at its levels.

00:58:27--> 00:58:30

Let us be part of these 10 days

00:58:30--> 00:58:33

and the nights it is going to be

00:58:33--> 00:58:33

Quran.

00:58:34--> 00:58:36

Put for yourself

00:58:36--> 00:58:37

schedule

00:58:37--> 00:58:38

with

00:58:39--> 00:58:41

a specific amount of reading the Quran. Again,

00:58:42--> 00:58:45

these will be very easy when I remove

00:58:45--> 00:58:48

all the distractions except the necessity, but if

00:58:48--> 00:58:49

I am going to keep doing as I

00:58:49--> 00:58:51

am doing, as we say it here, if

00:58:51--> 00:58:52

you keep doing what you are doing, you

00:58:52--> 00:58:54

will keep getting what you are getting.

00:58:55--> 00:58:56

If I'm going to still be

00:58:56--> 00:58:58

spending a lot of time on the phone,

00:58:58--> 00:59:00

chatting with people, discussing politics, discussing,

00:59:01--> 00:59:03

stock market, all this,

00:59:05--> 00:59:08

I am deprived, I can discuss all this

00:59:08--> 00:59:08

afterward.

00:59:10--> 00:59:12

So let's ask Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, You

00:59:16--> 00:59:18

Allah don't deprive us from

00:59:19--> 00:59:20

the khair, the goodness of

00:59:21--> 00:59:22

You Allah

00:59:23--> 00:59:25

this is a beautiful Dua also.

00:59:28--> 00:59:30

You Allah help us

00:59:31--> 00:59:32

and to remember You.

00:59:33--> 00:59:34

To be grateful

00:59:35--> 00:59:37

and to worship You in the best way,

00:59:37--> 00:59:39

in the best way. The more grateful I

00:59:39--> 00:59:41

am to Allah, the more He will give

00:59:41--> 00:59:43

me, the more grateful when I put the

00:59:43--> 00:59:45

date in my mouth and I say You

00:59:45--> 00:59:46

Allah, alhamdulillah,

00:59:46--> 00:59:48

You made the day easy, Allah will make

00:59:48--> 00:59:49

the night easier.

00:59:50--> 00:59:53

Let's start this relationship and I will end

00:59:53--> 00:59:56

up with this. Let's take these 10 days

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

opportunity

00:59:58--> 00:59:58

and

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

re establish,

01:00:01--> 01:00:02

re establish or

01:00:04--> 01:00:05

make

01:00:05--> 01:00:08

re establish the relationship with Allah

01:00:08--> 01:00:12

or strengthen the relationship with Allah Subhanahu Wa

01:00:12--> 01:00:13

Ta'ala or

01:00:15--> 01:00:17

much closer to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. One

01:00:17--> 01:00:20

thing, don't forget to be generous in these

01:00:20--> 01:00:21

10 nights also.

01:00:22--> 01:00:23

If you are not in a state of

01:00:25--> 01:00:27

meaning you are not completely disconnected,

01:00:27--> 01:00:28

be generous.

01:00:28--> 01:00:30

Anyone reach out to you. I'm not talking

01:00:30--> 01:00:32

about money only, I'm talking about

01:00:33--> 01:00:33

giving.

01:00:34--> 01:00:36

Anybody reach out to you for help, do

01:00:36--> 01:00:38

it. Don't say they don't do it. Don't

01:00:38--> 01:00:40

say they don't deserve it. You're doing it

01:00:40--> 01:00:43

for Allah. You're doing it for Allah, very

01:00:43--> 01:00:45

generous. Absolutely give money if you can, that's

01:00:45--> 01:00:46

for sure.

01:00:47--> 01:00:50

Everybody is doing their fundraising these days because

01:00:50--> 01:00:53

you are opening an opportunity for people to

01:00:53--> 01:00:54

do a good deed. This is how I

01:00:54--> 01:00:56

say it to myself, when someone

01:00:56--> 01:00:57

call me or text me and say we

01:00:57--> 01:00:59

need this or I need that, Irakh Alhamdulillah,

01:01:00--> 01:01:02

Allah brought it to me. So I will

01:01:02--> 01:01:05

be generous, generous in forgiving people, clear your

01:01:05--> 01:01:06

heart,

01:01:07--> 01:01:09

clear your heart, go to these 10 nights.

01:01:11--> 01:01:14

You Allah, don't put in our hearts any

01:01:14--> 01:01:16

hatred to any person who is a believer.

01:01:17--> 01:01:19

Whatever they did, I have done worse with

01:01:19--> 01:01:21

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. This is how I

01:01:21--> 01:01:24

always say, clear your hearts, clear your hearts

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

completely

01:01:25--> 01:01:27

and ask Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala You

01:01:28--> 01:01:31

Allah accept from us as Sayyidina Ibrahim when

01:01:31--> 01:01:33

he build the Kaaba, what more

01:01:34--> 01:01:37

virtuous act than building the house of Allah?

01:01:38--> 01:01:39

At the end he said

01:01:41--> 01:01:43

You Allah accept from us

01:01:45--> 01:01:47

You are all hearing, all know, and

01:01:49--> 01:01:50

repent and accept our repentance.

01:01:52--> 01:01:52

Ask Allah

01:01:56--> 01:01:58

You Allah You are Thee, 1 who pardon,

01:01:58--> 01:02:00

please pardon me.

01:02:00--> 01:02:03

And You love to pardon, please pardon me.

01:02:12--> 01:02:13

I wanna share a couple of things with

01:02:13--> 01:02:14

you, number 1, JazaakumAllahu

01:02:14--> 01:02:16

khayran, I am personally

01:02:17--> 01:02:19

as me and on behalf of all the

01:02:19--> 01:02:22

staff of Jannah Institute, I am so grateful

01:02:22--> 01:02:24

to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala number 1, but

01:02:24--> 01:02:26

also to everybody who have been supporting us

01:02:27--> 01:02:29

and supported us by your generosity from last

01:02:29--> 01:02:30

Ramadan,

01:02:30--> 01:02:31

Alhamdulillah,

01:02:31--> 01:02:34

and I cannot be enough grateful to Allah.

01:02:34--> 01:02:37

Everything in our institute doubled or tripled, the

01:02:37--> 01:02:40

courses, the teachers, the students,

01:02:40--> 01:02:42

the classes, we were able to open more

01:02:42--> 01:02:44

and more and more. Alhamdulillah,

01:02:45--> 01:02:46

we moved from

01:02:47--> 01:02:49

a local institute to Alhamdulillahirubbalan

01:02:50--> 01:02:53

International Institute. We have students from all over

01:02:53--> 01:02:55

the world, that's by his fubal al niyama,

01:02:55--> 01:02:56

and

01:02:56--> 01:02:59

after that by your help, your generosity,

01:02:59--> 01:03:02

you're trusting us to learn from us, you're

01:03:02--> 01:03:05

trusting us to donate to us, you're trusting

01:03:05--> 01:03:07

us that we are worthy

01:03:07--> 01:03:09

of taking this Amana, so Jazakumullahquayra,

01:03:10--> 01:03:12

and I am here pleading

01:03:12--> 01:03:14

to everybody because I'm going to share with

01:03:14--> 01:03:14

you,

01:03:17--> 01:03:19

a beautiful gesture Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala made

01:03:19--> 01:03:21

it easy. Bi idillah,

01:03:21--> 01:03:24

from this fall September, we are starting a

01:03:24--> 01:03:25

whole 1 year program.

01:03:26--> 01:03:29

Woman to woman, woman teachers to the woman

01:03:29--> 01:03:30

students,

01:03:30--> 01:03:32

and it's titled year of knowledge,

01:03:33--> 01:03:36

what every Muslim woman should learn about her

01:03:36--> 01:03:36

deen.

01:03:37--> 01:03:39

The goal of this program is not to

01:03:39--> 01:03:40

graduate scholars,

01:03:41--> 01:03:43

the goal of the program is that the

01:03:43--> 01:03:44

mothers of tomorrow

01:03:45--> 01:03:46

and the current mothers

01:03:47--> 01:03:48

learn this Deen

01:03:48--> 01:03:49

properly,

01:03:49--> 01:03:51

practice it properly,

01:03:51--> 01:03:54

in an authentic way, all the books and

01:03:54--> 01:03:56

all the material we are using are all

01:03:56--> 01:03:56

authentic,

01:03:57--> 01:03:59

but in an easy way and a practical

01:03:59--> 01:04:01

way. We ask for your dua, number 1,

01:04:01--> 01:04:04

and absolutely we will ask for your support

01:04:04--> 01:04:06

and the the, you see the link,

01:04:07--> 01:04:10

we had a generous woman this week

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

and she

01:04:12--> 01:04:12

pledged

01:04:13--> 01:04:14

to

01:04:14--> 01:04:14

match

01:04:15--> 01:04:17

whatever we are going to be collecting in

01:04:17--> 01:04:18

this weekend.

01:04:18--> 01:04:20

Be generous and do it for Allah Subhanahu

01:04:20--> 01:04:23

Wa Ta'ala and our goal is to reach

01:04:23--> 01:04:26

100,000, Alhamdulillah we are close to 60, we

01:04:26--> 01:04:28

still have some to go and it is

01:04:30--> 01:04:33

tax deductible as you all know and also

01:04:33--> 01:04:35

it is zakatib as we will allocate it

01:04:35--> 01:04:36

to the needy students.

01:04:36--> 01:04:39

So don't deprive us from your support

01:04:40--> 01:04:42

and if you cannot and we absolutely understand,

01:04:43--> 01:04:44

spread the word,

01:04:45--> 01:04:45

share it.

01:04:48--> 01:04:50

The person who guides people to do good

01:04:50--> 01:04:52

as if he or she did it.

01:04:54--> 01:04:56

And you have the,

01:04:58--> 01:04:58

the donations

01:04:59--> 01:05:00

details here.

01:05:00--> 01:05:02

I think there was a lot of questions,

01:05:02--> 01:05:04

if I can get some of the questions,

01:05:06--> 01:05:07

let's see.

01:05:10--> 01:05:12

Yeah. Norita, can we have the questions? I

01:05:12--> 01:05:13

don't see it.

01:05:14--> 01:05:16

Any questions is there?

01:05:20--> 01:05:21

Okay.

01:05:21--> 01:05:23

If you can put the questions at the

01:05:23--> 01:05:26

bottom, Yeah, Noritas or Yeah, okay. Alhamdulillah, Layla.

01:05:27--> 01:05:28

Can

01:05:29--> 01:05:31

you please talk about what those

01:05:31--> 01:05:33

on their ah, very good question.

01:05:33--> 01:05:36

May Allah reward you, Alayda. Allah SubhanAllah.

01:05:37--> 01:05:38

So the woman during her menstruation,

01:05:39--> 01:05:40

what can she

01:05:42--> 01:05:44

do? And it is a very common question

01:05:45--> 01:05:47

and it's a beautiful question. You know why?

01:05:47--> 01:05:49

I always say this to the woman, the

01:05:49--> 01:05:50

fact you are sad,

01:05:50--> 01:05:53

the fact you feel you are deprived and

01:05:53--> 01:05:55

look at what I did, that's a good

01:05:55--> 01:05:57

news. Your heart is connected with Allah Subhanahu

01:05:57--> 01:05:59

Wa Ta'ala, you want to do more.

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

So how do I answer? Number 1, number

01:06:02--> 01:06:03

1,

01:06:03--> 01:06:05

the fact you are not fasting,

01:06:06--> 01:06:07

that's an act of worship.

01:06:08--> 01:06:09

You will be rewarded

01:06:10--> 01:06:12

because you are not fasting because it's your

01:06:12--> 01:06:14

menstruation, because that's what he taught me. What

01:06:14--> 01:06:17

is Al Ibadah? What is act of worship?

01:06:17--> 01:06:18

I do and say

01:06:19--> 01:06:19

everything,

01:06:20--> 01:06:22

internal and external that's pleasing to Allah Subhanahu

01:06:22--> 01:06:24

Wa Ta'ala, so he told me not to

01:06:24--> 01:06:26

fast, so I'm not fasting

01:06:27--> 01:06:30

the actual fast, I am obeying Allah, I'll

01:06:30--> 01:06:31

be rewarded. I'm not praying.

01:06:32--> 01:06:34

I am not doing this because he told

01:06:34--> 01:06:35

me I am

01:06:35--> 01:06:37

obeying him. So what do I do?

01:06:39--> 01:06:40

Number 1,

01:06:40--> 01:06:42

and that's the most

01:06:42--> 01:06:44

easier the easiest one,

01:06:45--> 01:06:46

a lot of dhikr,

01:06:46--> 01:06:47

remembering

01:06:47--> 01:06:48

Allah.

01:06:48--> 01:06:51

Try to do try it. How does it

01:06:51--> 01:06:54

feel to make a 1,000 salawat Allah Rasool

01:06:54--> 01:06:54

Allah Wa Ta'ala

01:06:55--> 01:06:57

or 500 or 6 or 7? There's no

01:06:57--> 01:06:59

specific number I'm trying, but just a lot.

01:07:00--> 01:07:01

How about istighfar?

01:07:01--> 01:07:03

How about like what he taught us Rasool

01:07:03--> 01:07:05

alaihi wa sallam? Whomsoever says,

01:07:08--> 01:07:09

1,000 times

01:07:10--> 01:07:12

I'm sorry, 100 times in the morning, 100

01:07:12--> 01:07:14

times in the evening. How about that?

01:07:15--> 01:07:16

How about

01:07:17--> 01:07:18

100 times in the morning, 100 times in

01:07:18--> 01:07:19

the evening?

01:07:21--> 01:07:22

Now number 2,

01:07:23--> 01:07:24

stay away from disobedience.

01:07:26--> 01:07:27

That's a huge reward

01:07:28--> 01:07:30

at all. I'm not going to say anything,

01:07:31--> 01:07:33

anything that will disobey Allah.

01:07:33--> 01:07:35

I'm not going to be looking at anything

01:07:35--> 01:07:36

that will disobey Allah.

01:07:37--> 01:07:38

I am not going to hear or listen,

01:07:38--> 01:07:40

anything that will disobey Allah and I will

01:07:40--> 01:07:41

do my best

01:07:42--> 01:07:43

to harbor

01:07:44--> 01:07:45

nothing, nothing

01:07:45--> 01:07:47

but what pleases Allah in my heart.

01:07:48--> 01:07:50

Can I be generous in that money? Yes,

01:07:50--> 01:07:53

during my menstruation and again not necessarily only

01:07:53--> 01:07:55

money, generous, help people,

01:07:56--> 01:07:56

help people

01:07:57--> 01:07:58

cook,

01:07:58--> 01:08:01

Go and and and deliver it to the

01:08:01--> 01:08:02

fasting person.

01:08:03--> 01:08:03

Everyday,

01:08:03--> 01:08:04

$1.

01:08:05--> 01:08:05

Share news.

01:08:06--> 01:08:08

Share good news, good projects.

01:08:09--> 01:08:10

Be generous.

01:08:11--> 01:08:13

So the only 2 things or 3 things

01:08:13--> 01:08:16

where the woman during her menstruation cannot do

01:08:16--> 01:08:18

in reality is fasting, but she will be

01:08:18--> 01:08:20

rewarded by not fasting.

01:08:21--> 01:08:23

Prior, she will be rewarded and reading the

01:08:23--> 01:08:27

Quran. Reading the Quran meaning moving her lips

01:08:27--> 01:08:30

in the three opinions she cannot and definitely

01:08:30--> 01:08:33

touching the Quran. So you can have the

01:08:33--> 01:08:35

Quran in your, let's say iPad,

01:08:36--> 01:08:38

right? And then just look it with your

01:08:38--> 01:08:40

eyes and don't move your lips.

01:08:40--> 01:08:42

If you do this and

01:08:43--> 01:08:44

stay in your Musalla

01:08:48--> 01:08:50

And may Allah make it easy, Alayla.

01:08:51--> 01:08:54

Nourita, there's another question you can put now.

01:08:59--> 01:09:01

Do we have to stay up all night

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

to get laylatul Qadr?

01:09:05--> 01:09:06

That's what

01:09:08--> 01:09:09

Peace.

01:09:10--> 01:09:11

Till

01:09:12--> 01:09:14

the morning. You do your best.

01:09:15--> 01:09:17

What I mean by the following, you stay

01:09:17--> 01:09:18

in your

01:09:19--> 01:09:19

place,

01:09:20--> 01:09:22

whether again in the Masjid or in your

01:09:22--> 01:09:24

home, and if you get extremely tired and

01:09:24--> 01:09:26

that's why I've said during the day,

01:09:27--> 01:09:30

don't overdo things, don't get yourself so tired

01:09:30--> 01:09:32

and get rusted during the day because you

01:09:32--> 01:09:34

will you have a long night as we

01:09:34--> 01:09:34

say.

01:09:35--> 01:09:36

If you fell asleep,

01:09:37--> 01:09:39

then you take a nap, Allah gave you

01:09:39--> 01:09:42

this, but in general, yes, you stay up

01:09:42--> 01:09:45

all night between Dhikr, Qur'an, reading the Quran,

01:09:45--> 01:09:48

asking Allah for forgiveness and salah.

01:09:50--> 01:09:52

And again, not only the 27th,

01:09:54--> 01:09:55

29th night of Ramadan,

01:09:56--> 01:09:57

that many Muslims,

01:09:58--> 01:09:58

SubhanAllah,

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

I don't think we know it, we know

01:10:02--> 01:10:02

it's

01:10:03--> 01:10:03

virtue.

01:10:04--> 01:10:05

Other than it could be the night of

01:10:05--> 01:10:07

Al Qadr, but it is the night that

01:10:07--> 01:10:09

Allah will be rewarding

01:10:09--> 01:10:12

us and Rasul alaihis salatu wasalam says don't

01:10:12--> 01:10:13

you pay

01:10:14--> 01:10:15

the worker

01:10:15--> 01:10:17

at the end of his job,

01:10:18--> 01:10:20

it's the same for the night of 29th.

01:10:20--> 01:10:22

So I want when Allah is going to

01:10:22--> 01:10:24

reward me, I'm showing him the best in

01:10:24--> 01:10:25

me.

01:10:26--> 01:10:29

Please tell the issue regarding the property left

01:10:29--> 01:10:31

by a woman and its distribution.

01:10:32--> 01:10:34

I don't know what exactly this question,

01:10:35--> 01:10:35

mean,

01:10:36--> 01:10:39

I need more details. Please email me at

01:10:39--> 01:10:40

[email protected]

01:10:42--> 01:10:45

with more detail and inshallah, I'll do my

01:10:45--> 01:10:48

best. 3rd, whenever I want to do something

01:10:48--> 01:10:48

good,

01:10:49--> 01:10:50

the waswasa

01:10:50--> 01:10:51

of Shaytaan

01:10:52--> 01:10:53

disturbs me.

01:10:53--> 01:10:56

Is my iman weak? I am afraid Allah

01:10:56--> 01:10:57

will not forgive me.

01:10:58--> 01:10:59

Allah

01:11:02--> 01:11:03

Very good question.

01:11:03--> 01:11:05

Whenever I want to do a good, so

01:11:05--> 01:11:06

she has the intention,

01:11:07--> 01:11:08

and it is good meaning

01:11:08--> 01:11:10

what pleases Allah,

01:11:10--> 01:11:12

uh-huh, the was wasa of shaitan comes in

01:11:12--> 01:11:13

and I'll give you examples,

01:11:14--> 01:11:15

is my iman week,

01:11:16--> 01:11:18

May Allah forgive me. So there's many points

01:11:18--> 01:11:19

in this question, let's take it 1 by

01:11:19--> 01:11:20

1.

01:11:21--> 01:11:22

Intent to do good all the time,

01:11:23--> 01:11:24

all the time

01:11:28--> 01:11:28

and Rasulullah

01:11:29--> 01:11:31

see the beauty of this deen, whomsoever

01:11:32--> 01:11:33

intended

01:11:34--> 01:11:34

had

01:11:34--> 01:11:38

has or had the intention of doing good,

01:11:38--> 01:11:40

pleasing to Allah, and he or she could

01:11:40--> 01:11:41

not do it,

01:11:41--> 01:11:42

could not do it,

01:11:43--> 01:11:44

they will be rewarded.

01:11:45--> 01:11:47

Hasanah. And if they did it, they will

01:11:47--> 01:11:48

get 10 rewards.

01:11:49--> 01:11:52

So that's number 1. Number 2, what's wasa

01:11:52--> 01:11:52

of shaitan?

01:11:53--> 01:11:54

What do I do?

01:11:54--> 01:11:55

What do I do?

01:11:57--> 01:11:58

Allah also answered

01:12:15--> 01:12:17

When the whisper of Shaitaan touches them, what

01:12:17--> 01:12:18

do they do? Remembered

01:12:20--> 01:12:20

Allah.

01:12:22--> 01:12:22

They will

01:12:24--> 01:12:25

see well meaning.

01:12:26--> 01:12:27

Ask refuge.

01:12:33--> 01:12:35

This is easy. Just keep saying it. Keep

01:12:35--> 01:12:37

saying it. Shaitaan does not give up, but

01:12:37--> 01:12:38

don't give up.

01:12:40--> 01:12:40

Sabir,

01:12:41--> 01:12:44

compete, compete with him till he gives up.

01:12:44--> 01:12:46

2, is my Imaan weak?

01:12:47--> 01:12:50

We cannot keep saying our iman is weak.

01:12:50--> 01:12:52

My iman is weak

01:12:52--> 01:12:54

when I don't obey Allah.

01:12:54--> 01:12:57

When I disobey Allah in that moment, my

01:12:57--> 01:13:00

iman is weak, but not general. Rasulullah salatu

01:13:00--> 01:13:02

wasalam also taught us,

01:13:04--> 01:13:06

The person, the believer

01:13:06--> 01:13:09

who does or commit adultery in that moment

01:13:09--> 01:13:11

of committing adultery,

01:13:11--> 01:13:13

he's not a meaning his iman is weak.

01:13:13--> 01:13:14

So it's not general,

01:13:15--> 01:13:17

but when I disobey Allah, yes, my iman

01:13:17--> 01:13:19

at that moment is weak.

01:13:19--> 01:13:21

When I want to do something good, but

01:13:21--> 01:13:23

then I didn't do it,

01:13:24--> 01:13:26

could you be my iman weak? Yeah. But

01:13:26--> 01:13:28

don't look at it this way because that

01:13:28--> 01:13:30

will let shaytan have an easy way to

01:13:30--> 01:13:31

you. Just, you know what?

01:13:32--> 01:13:35

It's normal. Iman increase and decrease. This is

01:13:35--> 01:13:37

one of the belief of the people of

01:13:38--> 01:13:38

Husunna'al.

01:13:39--> 01:13:39

Iman

01:13:40--> 01:13:42

goes up and goes down. No.

01:13:43--> 01:13:45

How do it go up? By Bilpa, by

01:13:45--> 01:13:47

obedience to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, and how

01:13:47--> 01:13:48

does it get less?

01:13:48--> 01:13:49

By this by,

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

disobedience.

01:13:51--> 01:13:53

So whenever I feel this, just do a

01:13:53--> 01:13:55

good deed and the good deed is Astaghfirullah.

01:14:00--> 01:14:02

Will Allah Will forgive me, don't we

01:14:02--> 01:14:04

we should never ask this question.

01:14:06--> 01:14:06

No.

01:14:17--> 01:14:20

My servant, this is also to Zumal, the

01:14:20--> 01:14:23

scholars teaches us this is the most hopeful

01:14:23--> 01:14:24

verse

01:14:24--> 01:14:26

in the Quran. You

01:14:28--> 01:14:31

Say my Ibad, my servants, who are they?

01:14:32--> 01:14:33

They transgressed

01:14:34--> 01:14:36

not was wasa shaitan,

01:14:36--> 01:14:36

transgressed.

01:14:40--> 01:14:41

Don't despair

01:14:42--> 01:14:44

from the loving mercy of Allah.

01:14:47--> 01:14:48

Allah forgive

01:14:48--> 01:14:49

all the sins.

01:14:50--> 01:14:52

And then the next ayat, 2 ayats in

01:14:52--> 01:14:54

Surah 2 Nisa In Allah

01:14:58--> 01:15:00

Allah does not forgive

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

that we worship another partner with him.

01:15:05--> 01:15:07

Everything else he forgives. Allah is Al Ghaffour.

01:15:08--> 01:15:11

That's why we need to learn to be

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

Al Ghafoor.

01:15:16--> 01:15:18

Should we only worship during odd night? Very

01:15:18--> 01:15:20

good question, may Allah reward you. How do

01:15:20--> 01:15:22

I know for sure this is the odd

01:15:22--> 01:15:22

night?

01:15:24--> 01:15:25

How many years

01:15:25--> 01:15:26

we have

01:15:26--> 01:15:27

seen

01:15:28--> 01:15:28

that

01:15:29--> 01:15:31

they said it is today is the first

01:15:31--> 01:15:34

day of Ramadan so that odd nights will

01:15:34--> 01:15:36

be this and then later on they said

01:15:36--> 01:15:39

no, it was actually the beginning of Ramadan

01:15:39--> 01:15:40

was not in this.

01:15:41--> 01:15:43

Number 1. Number 2, there is always different

01:15:43--> 01:15:43

people in the world

01:15:45--> 01:15:47

fasting. How do I know we are the

01:15:47--> 01:15:48

right or we are the wrong? So what

01:15:48--> 01:15:50

is the answer to be on the safe

01:15:50--> 01:15:53

side? Every single night,

01:15:53--> 01:15:54

as much as I can.

01:15:55--> 01:15:58

That's why Araswari sallahu alaihi wa sallam, he

01:15:58--> 01:15:59

did that to cover the whole 10 nights.

01:15:59--> 01:16:01

He did not do it in the odd

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

nights only.

01:16:02--> 01:16:04

So do You Farah.

01:16:04--> 01:16:07

Every night, think of it of Layit Al

01:16:07--> 01:16:08

Qadr. Every night.

01:16:09--> 01:16:10

Every night.

01:16:10--> 01:16:13

Again, change the setting, the mind setting and

01:16:13--> 01:16:15

make every night as if it is Naylatul

01:16:15--> 01:16:17

Qadr, then for sure you will not miss

01:16:17--> 01:16:19

it. For sure you will not miss it

01:16:19--> 01:16:21

and ask Allah to make it easy. You

01:16:21--> 01:16:23

Rabbi. May Allah make it easy for all

01:16:23--> 01:16:24

of us.

01:16:26--> 01:16:28

Any other question, Yanurita?

01:16:33--> 01:16:35

How can I soften my heart? What

01:16:36--> 01:16:36

a question.

01:16:39--> 01:16:40

How can I soften my heart?

01:16:41--> 01:16:43

Turn the question the other way around.

01:16:44--> 01:16:45

What makes my heart

01:16:46--> 01:16:46

hard?

01:16:47--> 01:16:49

What hardened the heart?

01:16:50--> 01:16:51

Disobedience of Allah,

01:16:52--> 01:16:53

heedlessness,

01:16:53--> 01:16:54

Al Ghaffla,

01:16:54--> 01:16:55

Al Ghaffla.

01:17:03--> 01:17:04

Nay,

01:17:05--> 01:17:06

their hearts were

01:17:06--> 01:17:07

sealed

01:17:07--> 01:17:09

with a raan. Raan is like

01:17:10--> 01:17:12

the dark black, or the

01:17:14--> 01:17:18

Sadah is like when the metal becomes rotten.

01:17:20--> 01:17:22

Because of what they were doing, the heart

01:17:22--> 01:17:24

was engulfed with this.

01:17:24--> 01:17:26

That's what makes the heart hard,

01:17:27--> 01:17:27

meaning

01:17:28--> 01:17:30

if I spend my time

01:17:31--> 01:17:32

daily life

01:17:33--> 01:17:35

focusing only on my akhira.

01:17:35--> 01:17:37

I'm sorry. Focusing only on my dunya.

01:17:38--> 01:17:40

Not thinking of my akhira.

01:17:41--> 01:17:42

If I disobey Allah, it's not a big

01:17:42--> 01:17:44

deal Allah has Ghaffoonur Rahim.

01:17:45--> 01:17:47

I don't do but the bare minimum and

01:17:47--> 01:17:49

even if the bare minimum, I can assure

01:17:49--> 01:17:50

you the heart is hard.

01:17:51--> 01:17:53

And in one saying, I don't recall now,

01:17:53--> 01:17:56

but one of the ways to soften the

01:17:56--> 01:17:58

heart, many ways, but one of the ways,

01:17:58--> 01:17:59

number 1,

01:17:59--> 01:18:01

is dhikr of Allah, remembering

01:18:02--> 01:18:02

Allah.

01:18:03--> 01:18:03

Salah,

01:18:04--> 01:18:07

reading Quran, reading Quran inside salah and dhikr,

01:18:08--> 01:18:10

soften the heart, a lot of Istighfar,

01:18:11--> 01:18:14

a lot of Istighfar asking Allah for forgiveness

01:18:14--> 01:18:17

and Allah he sees you and he sees

01:18:17--> 01:18:19

me, he see I want to come close

01:18:19--> 01:18:21

to him, he will make it. But it's

01:18:21--> 01:18:21

a work,

01:18:22--> 01:18:24

the the you can go back to our

01:18:24--> 01:18:27

Tuskegee classes, we covered this in detail last

01:18:27--> 01:18:30

year about the signs of the hard heart

01:18:30--> 01:18:32

and the signs of the soft heart and

01:18:32--> 01:18:33

what are the steps, but I just gave

01:18:33--> 01:18:35

you the, general

01:18:36--> 01:18:38

is number 1. Charity is number 2, it's

01:18:38--> 01:18:39

extremely

01:18:39--> 01:18:40

and long

01:18:41--> 01:18:43

salah, especially in the night.

01:18:43--> 01:18:46

Tips for Muslims who are going to practice

01:18:46--> 01:18:48

the last 10 nights for the first time.

01:18:48--> 01:18:51

Okay. Good question. Never done it before.

01:18:52--> 01:18:53

You feel it's so scary.

01:18:54--> 01:18:55

You feel it's impossible

01:18:55--> 01:18:57

because I've never done it. What do you

01:18:58--> 01:18:59

mean by me sitting

01:18:59--> 01:19:02

on a corner facing the wall for the

01:19:02--> 01:19:04

whole 10 nights? That's very difficult.

01:19:04--> 01:19:05

That's Shaytan,

01:19:06--> 01:19:07

and that's my weakness.

01:19:08--> 01:19:10

Number 1, as I said it in the

01:19:10--> 01:19:12

beginning, I don't know if you joined us

01:19:12--> 01:19:12

from the beginning.

01:19:15--> 01:19:17

Nothing is easy but with Allah make it

01:19:17--> 01:19:18

easy.

01:19:22--> 01:19:23

Allah make it easy.

01:19:23--> 01:19:25

Make it easy. Make it easy.

01:19:26--> 01:19:27

Whenever you get tired,

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

take a nap,

01:19:29--> 01:19:31

especially during the day, if you're gonna do

01:19:31--> 01:19:33

the whole 10 days, make sure in the

01:19:33--> 01:19:35

day you get enough sleep because when we

01:19:35--> 01:19:37

get tired, we cannot do it. Don't eat

01:19:37--> 01:19:38

too much.

01:19:39--> 01:19:41

When we eat too much we get lazy,

01:19:41--> 01:19:42

when we eat too much we get lazy,

01:19:42--> 01:19:43

I've seen teachers

01:19:44--> 01:19:46

of the hearts where they will tell you

01:19:46--> 01:19:47

bare minimum

01:19:48--> 01:19:49

dates and water like

01:19:50--> 01:19:52

for 3 days. I'm not going to ask

01:19:52--> 01:19:54

this, but eat this.

01:19:54--> 01:19:56

Things you like to eat, stay away from

01:19:56--> 01:19:58

them. It weakens you,

01:19:58--> 01:20:00

it weakens you. And

01:20:00--> 01:20:02

pay attention to this, what I am gonna

01:20:02--> 01:20:03

say.

01:20:04--> 01:20:05

The first day is very difficult.

01:20:06--> 01:20:09

2nd day becomes less. 3rd day becomes less.

01:20:09--> 01:20:11

4th day become less.

01:20:11--> 01:20:13

5th and 6th becomes

01:20:14--> 01:20:16

not a big deal, 7, 8 becomes easy,

01:20:17--> 01:20:19

the 9 and 10th you're crying, it's done

01:20:20--> 01:20:23

because it's beautiful, we have never felt this.

01:20:23--> 01:20:24

Remove,

01:20:24--> 01:20:25

remove

01:20:26--> 01:20:28

the distractions, no phone,

01:20:28--> 01:20:30

No phone, and the reason I'm saying phone

01:20:30--> 01:20:31

because phone these days is not just a

01:20:31--> 01:20:32

phone, it's everything,

01:20:33--> 01:20:34

if you can, of course,

01:20:35--> 01:20:37

And minimum things, don't waste your time in

01:20:37--> 01:20:40

anything of dunya, not necessarily. And it will

01:20:40--> 01:20:42

be very easy. Allah will make it easy.

01:20:47--> 01:20:49

You can donate by check, absolutely.

01:20:49--> 01:20:50

Yes.

01:20:50--> 01:20:51

You

01:20:52--> 01:20:53

can

01:20:54--> 01:20:56

you can send the check, to the address,

01:20:56--> 01:20:57

if you

01:20:57--> 01:20:59

you can put the address, it's on our

01:20:59--> 01:21:01

website. You can send it to that address

01:21:01--> 01:21:03

by check, you can donate directly

01:21:04--> 01:21:04

through,

01:21:04--> 01:21:07

the bank, so it's direct debit through the

01:21:07--> 01:21:09

bank. You can do through credit card. You

01:21:09--> 01:21:11

can do through launch. Go to gennensitutedot

01:21:12--> 01:21:13

com/donate,

01:21:13--> 01:21:15

you will find it right there or just

01:21:15--> 01:21:16

go to jennaininstitute.com

01:21:17--> 01:21:18

and on the top there is donate, click

01:21:18--> 01:21:20

on it and we'll give you all the

01:21:20--> 01:21:20

options.

01:21:23--> 01:21:25

Yes, don't forget us in your generosity.

01:21:28--> 01:21:30

To and I say this all the time,

01:21:30--> 01:21:33

to give anything with to do anything with

01:21:33--> 01:21:34

Ihsan, it cost.

01:21:35--> 01:21:37

If I want to do Ihsan in my

01:21:37--> 01:21:40

salah, it cost me energy and time.

01:21:40--> 01:21:42

So if I want to do a program

01:21:42--> 01:21:44

and I want to teach and and the

01:21:44--> 01:21:45

institutes to flourish,

01:21:46--> 01:21:49

with Hassan, it definitely comes with cost because

01:21:49--> 01:21:51

people who works, may Allah reward them, we

01:21:51--> 01:21:54

have many volunteers, but also people comes and

01:21:54--> 01:21:56

they want to work instead of working in

01:21:56--> 01:21:58

another place that there will be no reward

01:21:59--> 01:21:59

other than

01:22:00--> 01:22:03

dunya, then and professionals, they need to be

01:22:03--> 01:22:05

paid well also, that's their right.

01:22:06--> 01:22:09

Yeah. That's the address right

01:22:10--> 01:22:11

here. Any other question?

01:22:12--> 01:22:12

How

01:22:13--> 01:22:14

to encourage

01:22:16--> 01:22:18

your loved ones to practice Islam better? I

01:22:18--> 01:22:19

feel frustrated

01:22:20--> 01:22:22

and sad when seeing some of my close

01:22:22--> 01:22:24

connections don't fast and pray

01:22:25--> 01:22:27

and don't observe Ramadan as we should do,

01:22:27--> 01:22:30

please have us in your dua. It's so

01:22:30--> 01:22:31

so true,

01:22:31--> 01:22:32

so reality,

01:22:33--> 01:22:33

so reality.

01:22:34--> 01:22:37

You see people fasting and they're not praying,

01:22:37--> 01:22:39

and you see people not fasting, and you

01:22:39--> 01:22:40

see people

01:22:40--> 01:22:42

fasting and praying

01:22:43--> 01:22:44

maybe just Ma'arub,

01:22:45--> 01:22:47

and you see people praying and fasting there

01:22:47--> 01:22:50

and praying the salawat but not reading Quran.

01:22:50--> 01:22:52

They know everything about this life but they

01:22:52--> 01:22:53

don't know the Quran.

01:22:58--> 01:23:00

As Allah said they know everything about this

01:23:00--> 01:23:02

life and they are very heedless about the

01:23:02--> 01:23:05

akhirah, it's sad, it's very sad.

01:23:05--> 01:23:05

However,

01:23:07--> 01:23:08

Alhamdulillah for Islam

01:23:09--> 01:23:11

and the Ayah that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala

01:23:11--> 01:23:11

told

01:23:16--> 01:23:17

You do not

01:23:18--> 01:23:18

guide

01:23:19--> 01:23:20

whom you love.

01:23:22--> 01:23:23

Allah guide.

01:23:24--> 01:23:25

So that's the first thing.

01:23:26--> 01:23:28

First thing is it's not in my hand.

01:23:29--> 01:23:30

I love them. I want to see them

01:23:30--> 01:23:32

with me in Jannah. I want them to

01:23:32--> 01:23:34

be even better than me, but I can't

01:23:34--> 01:23:36

do it, I can't change. I need to

01:23:36--> 01:23:38

tell this to myself. Having said that,

01:23:39--> 01:23:41

do I have other things I can do

01:23:41--> 01:23:43

for them? Yes, number 1 is

01:23:45--> 01:23:46

ask

01:23:50--> 01:23:52

Allah and I say if Allah guided me

01:23:52--> 01:23:54

and guided you, why not that person or

01:23:54--> 01:23:55

that person?

01:23:56--> 01:23:58

Sincerely pray for them, and if they are

01:23:58--> 01:24:01

your loved one by the name, in your

01:24:01--> 01:24:03

moments of closeness to Allah, in your sudul,

01:24:03--> 01:24:05

when you're crying and sobbing. This is your

01:24:05--> 01:24:07

children, when you're crying and sobbing,

01:24:09--> 01:24:10

beg him You Allah

01:24:10--> 01:24:11

You Allah

01:24:13--> 01:24:14

You are capable of everything.

01:24:16--> 01:24:17

Forgive them and guide them,

01:24:18--> 01:24:20

so pray and pray and pray for them,

01:24:20--> 01:24:21

don't nag,

01:24:21--> 01:24:24

don't give lectures, you push people away this

01:24:24--> 01:24:24

way,

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

but

01:24:26--> 01:24:29

most importantly, you are the example, I am

01:24:29--> 01:24:29

the example,

01:24:30--> 01:24:32

I practice what I preach as much as

01:24:32--> 01:24:33

I can,

01:24:33--> 01:24:35

and Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala will not let

01:24:35--> 01:24:35

you down.

01:24:37--> 01:24:39

Can you recite online Quran when you are

01:24:39--> 01:24:39

menstruating?

01:24:41--> 01:24:42

You mean

01:24:43--> 01:24:45

I didn't understand that. You mean recite, you

01:24:45--> 01:24:46

mean you're moving your

01:24:47--> 01:24:49

tongue, reciting the Quran moving your tongue, in

01:24:49--> 01:24:52

the three school of thoughts accepted Imam Malik

01:24:52--> 01:24:53

it is not allowed,

01:24:53--> 01:24:55

So if you wanna unless you are a

01:24:55--> 01:24:56

Haaf Yuwa,

01:24:56--> 01:24:58

unless you are in the process of Eid,

01:24:58--> 01:25:00

or you already have memorized and you are

01:25:00--> 01:25:01

reviewing, that's the exception,

01:25:02--> 01:25:04

But in general, the answer is not allowed

01:25:04--> 01:25:05

in the 3 school of thoughts.

01:25:06--> 01:25:09

Which is more important finishing Quran during Ramadan

01:25:09--> 01:25:11

or reading it with understanding but unable

01:25:11--> 01:25:13

to finish it. Very good question,

01:25:14--> 01:25:16

This is very common question. What was the

01:25:16--> 01:25:18

sunnah? Go back to the origin.

01:25:18--> 01:25:19

What did he do

01:25:21--> 01:25:24

He reviewed the Quran with Sayyid Najibreel

01:25:25--> 01:25:26

every night

01:25:27--> 01:25:28

for 30 nights.

01:25:30--> 01:25:31

Quran. He eats

01:25:32--> 01:25:35

with sayyid Najibre, does it once

01:25:35--> 01:25:37

except the last year when he passed away,

01:25:37--> 01:25:40

he did it twice. So the sooner is

01:25:40--> 01:25:41

you finish. So what do you do? You

01:25:41--> 01:25:42

make

01:25:43--> 01:25:45

one, as we call it, khatma to finish

01:25:45--> 01:25:46

the whole Quran by reading.

01:25:47--> 01:25:50

Just read, and your intention, again, it's the

01:25:50--> 01:25:51

Quran, it's the words of Allah and follow

01:25:51--> 01:25:52

the Sunnah of Rasulullah

01:25:53--> 01:25:54

then

01:25:55--> 01:25:56

allocate some time

01:25:57--> 01:26:00

daily, one page to understand. Alhamdulillah, you can

01:26:00--> 01:26:02

do more, you can do more, but again

01:26:02--> 01:26:03

practically

01:26:03--> 01:26:07

also part of your dhikr, remembering Allah and

01:26:07--> 01:26:09

worshiping Allah, is

01:26:09--> 01:26:10

you understand

01:26:10--> 01:26:12

a page of the Quran, for example, half

01:26:12--> 01:26:14

a page, 5 a page, whatever you can.

01:26:15--> 01:26:18

Do the last 10 nights starts at Maghrib,

01:26:18--> 01:26:20

tonight it depends, it's it starts on the

01:26:20--> 01:26:21

night of 21st,

01:26:22--> 01:26:25

the night of 21st, so it depends when

01:26:25--> 01:26:26

did your Ramadan

01:26:26--> 01:26:27

start for you.

01:26:28--> 01:26:30

What is the best istighfar? I keep on

01:26:30--> 01:26:32

saying Astaghfirullah, but I realize at time my

01:26:32--> 01:26:35

mind is not here, does it count?

01:26:36--> 01:26:38

Very good question, Alhamdulillah, you are all doing

01:26:38--> 01:26:40

beautiful questions, Adhikr is 3 levels,

01:26:41--> 01:26:44

Remembering Allah Subhanahu Ta'ala is 3 levels.

01:26:45--> 01:26:47

The first trouble is with your tongue only.

01:26:48--> 01:26:49

I just say it.

01:26:50--> 01:26:52

2nd level is with my heart only. I

01:26:52--> 01:26:54

don't say it with my tongue. The best

01:26:54--> 01:26:56

is with my heart and with my tongue.

01:26:56--> 01:26:57

So I do my best to do the

01:26:57--> 01:26:59

3rd, but if I did the first, it's

01:26:59--> 01:27:01

also dhikr. What is the best Istighfar?

01:27:02--> 01:27:04

Sayyidul Istighfar, as Rasul alaihis salat wa salam

01:27:04--> 01:27:06

taught us, the master of Istighfar.

01:27:15--> 01:27:16

No,

01:27:16--> 01:27:17

I'm sorry,

01:27:18--> 01:27:20

it's not coming to my mind, SubhanAllah.

01:27:29--> 01:27:30

Help me if you can put it on

01:27:30--> 01:27:33

the screen. Sayyidul Istikfaal. I did a whole

01:27:33--> 01:27:36

one hour, subhanahu wa sihi how Allah always

01:27:36--> 01:27:37

remind us that he's

01:27:39--> 01:27:40

the only one who knows.

01:27:41--> 01:27:42

You can go to YouTube, I did a

01:27:42--> 01:27:42

whole,

01:27:43--> 01:27:45

about the Sayyidul Al Istighfar.

01:28:15--> 01:28:16

You find it

01:28:16--> 01:28:19

in Muslim in anywhere. Put it write it

01:28:19--> 01:28:20

in Arabic. Put it in your place where

01:28:20--> 01:28:22

are you doing your ratika, or where you're

01:28:22--> 01:28:24

doing your acts of

01:28:25--> 01:28:27

acts of worship right there. If this is

01:28:28--> 01:28:29

sometimes we want more, the best

01:28:31--> 01:28:32

and as Rasulullah

01:28:33--> 01:28:34

taught us what Sayyidina

01:28:41--> 01:28:43

No God but You You Allah, I was

01:28:43--> 01:28:44

a wrongdoer.

01:28:44--> 01:28:46

We'll take one more question.

01:28:48--> 01:28:49

What advice can you What

01:28:50--> 01:28:53

advice can you give for mothers to balance

01:28:53--> 01:28:55

between the ibadah for lasting nights and our

01:28:55--> 01:28:57

mother duties? Very good question, You shawl.

01:28:58--> 01:29:00

May Allah reward you. Number 1, and this

01:29:00--> 01:29:02

is applies to a lot of the women,

01:29:02--> 01:29:06

Alhamdulillah, especially with young children, right? Or big

01:29:06--> 01:29:06

family

01:29:07--> 01:29:09

or women taking care of their family, their

01:29:09--> 01:29:12

husband, their parents, what do I do? I

01:29:12--> 01:29:14

can't do this 10 nights completely.

01:29:14--> 01:29:15

Number 1,

01:29:16--> 01:29:18

have the intention and you are sadika, you

01:29:18--> 01:29:20

are true to the law that if I

01:29:20--> 01:29:22

did not have this I would have done

01:29:22--> 01:29:22

it to Allah.

01:29:23--> 01:29:25

And as Rasool alaihi s salam taught us,

01:29:26--> 01:29:27

when he was telling the Sahaba, there is

01:29:27--> 01:29:28

people in Madinah,

01:29:29--> 01:29:31

and when he left with a group of

01:29:31--> 01:29:31

companions

01:29:32--> 01:29:34

going for expedition and there's some people stayed

01:29:34--> 01:29:36

in Madinah. He told those who were with

01:29:36--> 01:29:39

him, there is people stayed in Madinah. Any

01:29:40--> 01:29:42

mountain or any hill that you go up

01:29:42--> 01:29:43

and you go down,

01:29:43--> 01:29:45

you will get reward, they will get the

01:29:45--> 01:29:47

reward. The reason they didn't come up because

01:29:47--> 01:29:48

they had the excuse

01:29:50--> 01:29:52

So here you are, Allah knows if you

01:29:52--> 01:29:55

were free, if your children were grown up,

01:29:55--> 01:29:56

if you were alone, you would have done

01:29:56--> 01:29:57

it.

01:29:57--> 01:30:00

So have this inside you. Number 2,

01:30:01--> 01:30:04

taking care of the children or taking care

01:30:04--> 01:30:06

of the husband or taking care of the

01:30:06--> 01:30:08

parents in the way pleasing to Allah is

01:30:08--> 01:30:09

an act of worship

01:30:10--> 01:30:11

and Allah will reward you.

01:30:12--> 01:30:13

3,

01:30:13--> 01:30:14

3,

01:30:14--> 01:30:17

every spare moment I have, I'm going to

01:30:17--> 01:30:18

use it for Ibadah,

01:30:18--> 01:30:21

every spare moment, you know, sometimes you're very

01:30:21--> 01:30:23

tired, we just sit on the couch and

01:30:23--> 01:30:25

just we do nothing, not in the 10

01:30:25--> 01:30:26

days of Ramadan, the last 10

01:30:27--> 01:30:29

days. I am going to be doing dhikr,

01:30:31--> 01:30:33

Quran. Allah, please forgive me. You Allah make

01:30:33--> 01:30:35

it easy. Right? I'm going to be listening

01:30:35--> 01:30:35

to Quran

01:30:36--> 01:30:38

and then the Quran is close to me,

01:30:38--> 01:30:40

so whenever there is a moment I will

01:30:40--> 01:30:43

be reading Quran. Grab the grasp and grab

01:30:43--> 01:30:43

the

01:30:44--> 01:30:47

every free time opportunity, even you're sleeping, make

01:30:47--> 01:30:48

it act of worship.

01:30:49--> 01:30:50

You Allah, I'm going to bed, I'm very

01:30:50--> 01:30:52

tired but I need to rest a little

01:30:52--> 01:30:53

bit and I'm gonna get up to worship

01:30:53--> 01:30:55

you, You Rabbi Ani. We'll take one more

01:30:55--> 01:30:58

question, inshaAllah, we will be done, if there

01:30:58--> 01:31:00

is any more questions. May Allah make it

01:31:00--> 01:31:02

easy for you, and for everyone,

01:31:03--> 01:31:05

for everybody who's working these long hours they

01:31:05--> 01:31:07

had to work to feed their families.

01:31:07--> 01:31:09

Man and a woman, may Allah make it

01:31:09--> 01:31:10

easy for you.

01:31:11--> 01:31:13

I'm trying to maintain the non

01:31:15--> 01:31:18

muhrams in our house, I want my family

01:31:18--> 01:31:20

to maintain the non muhrams in our house.

01:31:21--> 01:31:24

Pray salah, do fast, they read the Quran,

01:31:24--> 01:31:26

but they are weak to maintain the non

01:31:26--> 01:31:28

Mahram in the house. I don't understand exactly

01:31:28--> 01:31:30

the question, just one comment.

01:31:30--> 01:31:31

Let's not

01:31:33--> 01:31:34

judge people.

01:31:35--> 01:31:37

Allah knows what is in the heart. I

01:31:37--> 01:31:39

don't know who has weak iman. Let's not

01:31:39--> 01:31:41

be that. If anybody has weak iman, it's

01:31:41--> 01:31:41

me.

01:31:42--> 01:31:45

Right? And at one day I was even

01:31:45--> 01:31:47

worse and I didn't understand very well, sister,

01:31:47--> 01:31:49

please email me so so I can look

01:31:49--> 01:31:51

into detail. Can a woman do a tikaf

01:31:51--> 01:31:52

at her home? Yeah, absolutely.

01:31:53--> 01:31:55

Absolutely. Some school of thought, they said her

01:31:55--> 01:31:56

a tikaf is in her

01:31:57--> 01:31:59

home, however, the wives of Rasool alaihi wa

01:31:59--> 01:32:01

sallam build Atikaab with him in the Masjid.

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

How can we join the course at Jannah

01:32:03--> 01:32:04

01:32:05--> 01:32:06
