Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim was Allah Allah Sina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam a salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. Who Ramadan Mubarak Sharla May these last few days that we have be blessed at once for you may your whole month be a great blessing and May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept all of our prayers and our night prayers and our fasting. inshallah, may Allah accept our recitation. I want to say first of all, just that later, kata is one of the great gifts that Allah subhanaw taala gave this oma, it's worth 1000 months of bad. And so this was as a way of compensating for the previous communities that had much longer times and more Baraka in their time
also, because they weren't as preoccupied with so many things that modern people are. So it's, it's a day and a night that really we should try to take advantage of it sought in the last 10 according to a hadith in a hadith is Mustafa Khan is a member of Korean Muslim the last seven nights, and particularly there are nights. And then there are many of our scholars, including the great
translator of the Quran, Ibn Abbas, who felt that it was on the 27th night, the sign of it is that the sun will rise the following morning, without any raise, it will be very clear. And I've seen that myself, I've felt that there was a lot of clutter, and I went out and looked. So it's not necessarily on the 27th. And we should never
limit it to that day. Because the prophets I simply said to have a rule, like seek it in the last 10 nights, and particularly the odd nights. So don't miss the blessing of all the nights, and particularly odd nights, and particularly the 27th night. And finally, I just want to thank all of our supporters, we have been just incredibly blessed. There's a lot of things that I'd like to do. If I had more capacity, I could do more things. But I have to be absolutely grateful. This community has been so generous with zaytuna College, we have just beautifully loyal supporters that see the importance of it. And also see the fact that we're caretakers that we will move on we're stewards
for a time we're building something so that others don't have to build it after us. If it was here, it would have been much easier for me to just be in an institution where I could just teach, but we've built it so that others after us won't have to build it. So I hope that you all continue to support us. May Allah bless you. And Allah bless your wealth. And may Allah subhanaw taala unify the hearts of our community, and also the hearts of the greater community. There's a lot of dissension not only among the Muslims, but we see dissension around the world. And this is all from Iblees and the the the message of layers of powder is multitude multitudes of angels descend upon us. And what
do they say Salaam peace, and peace is wholeness pieces unity, peace as well being and it's very far from dissension from enmity from animosity, and from disunity. So, the prophets Allah said, I'm said, and none of you will enter Paradise until he or she believes and none of you will truly believe until you love one another. And then he said, Can I tell you something that if you practice it, love will grow amongst you? And they wanted to hear and the Prophet said up she said on Vanakkam spread peace amongst you. That's the message of Laila to other Solomon. He had a mother and father
