oh one who sleeps stand up bendy, Claire the 1717
Assalamualaikum and a very warm welcome to the philosophy of fasting Bismillah Rahim Al hamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen All praise is due to Allah, peace and blessings be upon Muhammad, Allah's Prophet and Messenger of Allah.
As always, it's my ultimate pleasure to welcome Dr. Hatem al al dad to the studio. I salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa and thanks again for joining us in the studio. Does that go lucky? Well, Doctor, it's an amazing journey that we're going on together. And I want to take this program today because we're approaching the last 10 nights of Ramadan. And I want to share with the viewers at home the virtues at the last 10 days of Ramadan.
Mr. Villa ramen over him Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah.
The last 10 days of Ramadan, are considered to be the most virtuous days of the whole year.
Some scholars said that there are 10 there are two groups of 10 days, right, the last 10 days of Ramadan, and the first 10 days of the ledger. Okay. So they were saying that the most the more virtuous days of the
whole year, or the last 10 days of Ramadan, some other scholars said no, the most virtuous days of the whole year are the first 10 days of the hijab. Some other scholars said like Scheffel, Islam even told me, he said,
in terms of the nights, the last 10 days of Ramadan, the last 10 nights of Ramadan are the most virtuous nights of the whole year without any discussion. But in terms of the days, the law, the first 10 days of the hijab, the days, not the nights, the days, they'll hit, more virtuous than the last 10 days of Ramadan. So generally speaking, those 10 days are very unique opportunity for all of us, definitely. And every single minute of those 10 days. And this those 10 nights of Ramadan is considered to be a mine of gold.
I'm really surprised to see that our brothers and sisters are very keen on materialistic things. And whenever there is a season for, for trade or business, they don't waste any single minute. Yes, when when, for example, this period is a good period for business is a high season, of course, they don't waste any single minute of that Dr. Tomato, the highest season four, the Ibadah is the last 10 days of Ramadan, and yet we lose a lot of this.
See, as we are talking about again, philosophy of Ramadan fasting,
let us imagine that there is a wealthy King, not just a normal king, or will thicken, who said to the people, I will have a competition.
And I will be visiting this city, I'll be visiting different cities in My Kingdom.
And whenever I visit a city, those people who meet me in that city, I will give each one of them later say $1 million, okay. And I will give him a big property in any place he wants or she wants. So, for example, we have city A, B, C and D. So he said, I will go and visit all of these cities
during this period. And whenever who whoever meets me and baby shakes hands with me. I will just give him $1 million and a property and any place he or she chooses. And he said I have
One condition, the only condition is I will not tell you when I'm going to visit A or B, or C or D. Okay, I will visit them randomly. So it is up to you to go outside to receive me.
And during those 10 days, yes, because in one of those 10 days, I might be there.
Now, I'm asking you, brother, Rafi, if you hear about this, and you see, you think about it, we have an opportunity of 10 days, just go every single day to meet the king. And one of those days, definitely, we are going to get $1 million.
And the big property. Do you think that there is anyone in the world who hear about it? Or anyone in the kingdom of that King, who hears about this does not go to get to this opportunity? Definitely. We'd be there. The first opportunity would be there straight at the the hour, we're live there. Yes, people will live there definitely not to miss the opportunity of meeting the king, for sure. Because they will say, Oh, it's just a matter of 10 days. Let us work hard on those 10 days. And on the opposite of those 10 days. We are going to get what we are going to get $1 million and a big property of course, the last 10 days of Ramadan have Laila to others. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam said that I was given later to gather the knowledge of Leila together I was given the knowledge of later added but I forgot it but I was told that you need to seek later other in one of the 10 days of Ramadan or in one of the last 10 days of Ramadan. Okay. This is a little other what is Leila Takada? Yes
Lena tell other either week a we can say the translation of Leila to other other means on a mighty or value. Okay, this is Goddess.
Now, this Leila this night or some people translated as the night off power
might not be an accurate translation I don't want to get into political views Yes, I don't means means value right status. This is the original meaning of Laila. Tell others number a little
later in the no fee little cuddle. Okay, so
this night is a very distinguished night. The Quran was revealed in Laila Tokaj. Allah Allah Allah Allah says fee ha yo for Rocco Kulu Amarin Hakeem and the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam explain to this, that the cause of what Allah Allah Allah is going to reveal what Allah Jalla wa Allah is going to decree for the coming year will be revealed from the Preserved Tablet to the lower to the lower heaven during that night. Otherwise Allah deliver Anna decided everything in the past before Leila Takada, but there is the yearly
you can say decree, the yearly decree and the yearly decree takes place in Leila to others. That's why it is the night of honor. It is a very distinguished night. It is the most important night throughout the whole year. That's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to make a decaf during the last 10 nights of Ramadan in order to meet Leila together. And all of us know we all know the surah the surah to Qatar, in the NA who feel each other. We have revealed the book in the night of others in the law who feel a little other than Allah. Allah Allah says what lay that will cadre Hiren mean official half the night of other this night is better than 1000 years or 1000. Bumps Yes.
1000 bonds means how many years? At three years? What does it mean that Leila two other is better than 1000 months? The Scholars say that they're a bad
during Leila to other is better than a bad for 83 years. And some scholars say that Allah Jalla Anna
knows that the
ages for this amount will be short
Definitely, and Allah Allah Allah Allah wants the people of this mother of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be the best. So Allah, Allah, Allah honored us. Look at this, this is the Mercy of Allah, Allah. Allah Allah Allah Allah honored us honor the people who came after Mohammed, the owner of Mohamed by this a chance that if you if you meet like that, if you witness that later, if you have a BA in Laila to others, then your productivity, your life will be increased, because your life will be your lifespan will be 6070 years, plus how many Laila to cuddle? You did a brother in so if you did a bad in one, just only one labor to cover your life will be increased by 60 years
plus 83 years of a badass. So you will be able to compete with other nations who used to have long life. In fact, as some scholars said, Imagine that person who
for the past 60 years, for example, this person died when he is on his 80 or 75. Okay, so he was doing a bad job for 60 Ramadan's, right 60 years, and 60 Ramadan's Okay, okay. So, every year he is doing a binder and he is getting delayed at other getting the reward of labor to other means he is getting expansion in his life 60 times, at three years. Imagine how long his life will be a huge him lie, his life will be that long. And all of this will be considered as a bad for him Subhanallah that's why any sane. any sane person who knows about this, he should be so keen to do what to do about the taxi thing later, martial law. Thank you so much, Doctor. Definitely it is something to
You know, it's amazing. That's all we have time for right now in this part. Well, stay tuned. We're just going to take a quick break Assalamu alaikum welcome.
Oh, my Amantha
Assalamualaikum and a very warm welcome back to the philosophy of fasting. Well, as you know, we're talking about the virtues of the last 10 days of Ramadan.
Dr. Latham you know we were talking about before the break about the the last 10 days of Ramadan, and the virtues. Okay, so let's take me for an example or any reverted Muslim that wants to do a decaf and wants to perform the last 10 days. What will happen to me how can I perform it and what why will it benefit me?
Okay, Mr. Lau salat wa salam ala Rasulillah.
If the person can do a t cap on those 10 days of Ramadan, that is the best thing, okay. If the person cannot do Attica for whatever reason, he goes to work or he had some other commitments, then at least he should observe the Yama Lane throughout those 10 days of Ramadan, right? You know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to as Aisha Radi Allahu Taala and has said that he used to normally sleep and make the omelet. But when he started the last 10 days or the last 10 nights of Ramadan, a higher Laila who cooler who means he remained awake for the whole night, during the last every night over the last few days, on Ramadan, and in the other Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam, she said that the prophets Allah has seldom used to dedicate himself more in the last 10 days of Ramadan, but he kicked himself for Asia and pm Lena more in the last 10 days of Ramadan. And she is used to say that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam tied his lower garment his medicine, shed them Zara who the scholar said this shed them Zara who it refers to the fact that he became more active during the salon last 10 nights of Ramadan. Some other scholars said no, it means it means this and it also means another thing that the prop
salatu salam kept away from women
in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, why because he doesn't want to spend time in anything other than a BA.
And it doesn't mean that it is not allowed to have the sexual relationship or intimacy with your wives. But it means that that is spent, if you can avoid it, in order to dedicate yourself more for a data, that is better, of course, and, and they they the scholars discuss this issue with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam used to remain awake, literally awake for the whole night from Asia until Fudger
throughout these nights, and some scholars said yes, he used to remain awake because the Hadith says here Leila who co Lo, he used to be awake for the whole night. Some other scholars very few. In fact, they said no, he stayed awake most of his night. Whether this or that, we can say that if we can remain awake. Especially you know, these days.
Summer time, the night is very short. Definitely yes, it is okay, it's very especially in the West, the night is very short. So, if we can remain awake for the whole night, that will be excellent the whole night means after Isha until failure. And we witnessed many of our scholars who used to be awake for the whole night.
And by the way, the last 10 days of Ramadan, or the last year, the last 10 days of Ramadan, they start from, as we said, previously, when we spoke about teacup, they started from the Maghreb of the 20th
the malady of 20th until the last day of Ramadan, so during those days, during those nights, in particular, the person has to increase his a vida, for sure, we will come and discuss Inshallah, the rulings of the Yama and the details of the amulet, but if the person can increase his family
and he can mix the Yama lane with some types of do
re citation of the Quran, okay, with making stuff up, that is good. That was good, definitely. And that as we said, it starts from the Maghreb, of the 20th Ramadan, Mashallah. Dr. Hatem? You know, it's fascinating, and I'm really happy that I have this opportunity to work with you to find out this information, as it's been revealed to me, obviously, to the viewers, as well. However, let's take me for another example. I'm I'm doing I'm in the last 10 days of Ramadan, what virtues can i What virtues Can I have from this? Yeah, as we say that every single person can do this. Every single person can do this, even even if the person cannot do it. You are, I think you are coming
from that background? Yes. If I can't do Attica, will I miss the opportunity of the last 10 days of Ramadan? Or the last 10 nights of Ramadan? No, you will not miss that opportunity. Right? It's still you can get to that opportunity, provided that you increase your Ibadah during the last 10 nights of Ramadan, you dedicate yourself on every night as the prophesy seldom used to dedicate himself more for a bad during these 10 nodes. And see, I don't want you or the viewers to understand that if you do not do it curve, then you are going to miss that opportunity. No, that is not true. Because because it has been revealed that Leila to cuddle can be witnessed by those people who are not doing
it decaf, right and the Prophet sallallahu sallam said man's man, man karma Laila tell others, the one who observes a young lady during the night of power, he will have all his previous sins forgiven. So the Prophet SAW Selim did not make this is special for those who make Antica, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam just made it open for everyone who can do or who can increase the Jambu level during those 10 nights. And as I said, it is not only prayer now
If we can pray during these 10 days, or these 10 Nights, that is good, but if we cannot pray for the whole night, then we can mix up between prayer, we can add some dua, we can add some resuscitation of the Quran, even the Assam scholar said, giving sadaqa during these 10 Nights will be one of the virtuous acts and inshallah we will be, we hope that we have some episodes to speak about the importance of sadaqa during the month of Ramadan, so, all of these types of EBA that that can can be done. And see,
because you are talking about the worst. And the people normally are busy. And they have other commitments, of course, if people can do at Cafe Al Hamdulillah, but if people cannot do a takeoff,
they should not make it so hard for themselves to do aitikaf and to lose their families, of course, because I have seen some people who just do it calf look after themselves, but they neglect their families, they neglect their children. And you know, some some people like to enjoy themselves more during the last 10 nights of Ramadan. And they used to hang around and go etc. Exactly. This is this is not correct. If this is not correct, of course, we want to do it Ibadah but the essential the essential obligations, such as looking after the children and and taking care of them is something that we cannot we cannot neglect a during the last 10 days of Ramadan, of course, Dr will get pushed
on time. So you know, I'm trying to wrap it up as quick as I can, however, coming from the west, and I've lived in the east. So have two opinions on you know, what I've seen in the West, we have seen exactly what you've said. And in the east. I've I've seen exactly the same because people are not going on the straight path they are going this way they seem to interpret it how they want they don't value what they've been given and what message can you get unfortunately yes you are right. So,
in the in in some Muslim countries
it is very sad to say this definitely is very sad to say that the last 10 nights of Ramadan or the nights of Ramadan or nights of celebrations and the night of fun nights of going out people and instead of spending the night the whole night in the masjid they spend the whole night outside hanging around or in the in the markets, shopping centers and so on or just watching TV and unfortunately, most TV channels in Muslim countries in particular, they put more attention to provide more plays more films during the days of Ramadan and in particular some of them during the last 10 nights of Ramadan. And as some people say that we are waiting for Ramadan to see new films a
new place yes and on TV and this is very, very bad. Very, very negative correct. It goes against the spirit of Ramadan and the philosophy of fasting in general. Of course may Allah subhanaw taala guide us all back to the straight path inshallah. Thank you so much for joining us again in the studio today Dr. Baraka Luffy as well surely guys at home in sha Allah, May Allah guide us to the correct path. Until next time, I'll leave you in the safe care of Allah assalamu Alikum welcome
