Night better than a 1000 months referring to night of Qadar ( بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
إِنَّآ أَنزَلۡنَـٰهُ فِى لَيۡلَةِ ٱلۡقَدۡرِ (١) وَمَآ أَدۡرَٮٰكَ مَا لَيۡلَةُ ٱلۡقَدۡرِ (٢) لَيۡلَةُ ٱلۡقَدۡرِ خَيۡرٌ۬ مِّنۡ أَلۡفِ شَہۡرٍ۬ (٣) تَنَزَّلُ ٱلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةُ وَٱلرُّوحُ فِيہَا بِإِذۡنِ رَبِّہِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمۡرٍ۬ (٤) سَلَـٰمٌ هِىَ حَتَّىٰ مَطۡلَعِ ٱلۡفَجۡرِ (٥) ) Surah Al-Qadr
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
We have sent it (the Qur’an) down in the Night of Qadr. And what may let you know what the Night of Qadr is? The Night of Qadr is much better than one thousand months.The angels and the Spirit descend in it, with the leave of your Lord, along with every command. Peace it is till the debut of dawn.] in the odd nights of Holy month of Ramadan . Very useful lecture given by Shaykh Hasan Ali @ EIC Al-Masjid in north london this lecture is part of series of lectures given in the month of Ramadan 2012 @ EIC Al-Masjid .
other sisters, as
a lot has been very merciful on us first, but he has made videos
great is the greatest Mercy of Allah.
Allah has had a great, great mercy on us that he has kept us alive,
alive, to be able to be able to do something
that has been great for us that He not only has us
alive, but he has given us Time, time is probably one of the biggest factors after being alive. Having the man once then we got the time to do something of some of the greatest narrows allowed Lazarus gives us
of nobody says that there are too
many different many people are many people are deceived by these gifts.
In deception with these gifts, one is a second one is good health. And one is for what is being free. Having free time
is alive as given us good health has given us time to wonderful gifts. Now having more of these, having more of these, on top of that allows
us where the benefit of it is you don't have to live for 300 years or 900 years, the people before us
That's how long is now what
was 1000 years.
They say the average span of life was a 300 years. So
how do you find this, they start to express their feelings.
Like for example,
listening, although it says that the people they were like from from
like from father to love, and he said the the rumor of the Christians they are like love for us.
So you can see that the closeness
How are we supposed to compete with people before us? How is
In fact, our brothers and sisters know otherwise,
for ourselves is such a great deal. And enough for me to
say that I will give you one night, one night.
One night that will be better than 1000 months.
that you've got the shortest span the shortest span of life.
The span of the line I will expand 60 to 70 years. That's the average
You actually live.
If you live up to 60
Allah, Allah has not left you an excuse if you reach the age of 60 if somebody reached the age of 16, that Allah has given enough time in their life to make it so that they will be enough for the next time. So there's no excuse that at the age of 60
wish in the 60s
because they never see a white head, but never seen one that was on their head.
So they don't see anything. There's no signs of mold. And the guy basically has nice nice oil and nice green and the rest of it makes us a little nice and young, like clean shaven like the back of the knee and the behind the baby 40.
there are certain people who are met, who, when they hear somebody died at the age of 62 or 63, they say
why he died so young, why he died so young. He lived his life. He needed to 60
between 60 and 70.
And if you made 70 that's that fulfillment. I know when you read 60 most people don't realize this when you read 60 they think they read 60 on the 60 birthday wrong. You don't read 60 to 60.
You know, you reach your 36 year of life.
You become so you become 37 on your 36th birthday.
you are 30 you're 3637 from then on? Yeah. Because he is.
So happy 36 years again one year.
So you reach 72 you actually 74 the moment you said what you do, you're actually 74 the people who are 5960 6061. And some
of you are the lunar cycles, you're 6041 and a half years old to go to the solar
generation. And on
because now you got this age, a
data has given us what is known as email, he gave us all of these he gave me
a one night you can read, we can get more than 1000 months, analyzing the data has given us all of this, all of this within a short span of life. Okay, now is your chance that you can compete with these people.
for 300,000 years, but I don't think you want to compete them is your chance right now, I will give you every single year one night, and that one night you will equivalent to the worship of 83 years and four months. That's 1083 years, who's gonna live 83 years.
You get if you get 10 later in your life,
living a life of 800
years of life 833 years and four months of work, anything you do in my life is
anything you do. So you can imagine. Now there's a lot on my mind that we see this
a lot given us one
last here on this earth for the first.
The first was
the first one of the first people to actually reach them.
So we've got all these benefits. Now what are we going to do with it The thing is, though colossal, has not given us every night,
the night the power the night of decreasing things the other means to decrease other means to maintain means also to to restrain. Other means that on this night Allah would reveal to His angels all the things that are going to happen for the following year until the next day
is coming in
next fall so nice because we felt we had a nice coming in. Because tomorrow night is going to be the 21st night of Ramadan. Today, tonight
tomorrow not tomorrow is going to be 21st now they can be in it can either be in the online and sometimes it's
even nice. So there are certain hobbies I say or even that are more hobbies for the online so plenty more, there are certain nights he said he can be also on the 22nd the 2028 to 30
several Aggies so it's not like you get into the last 10 minutes and you take a gamble and you just do the online because we don't know whether we really started our fasting according to the
written Masha Allah bless less low clouds
to the sun the sun basically doesn't shine on the sun that's the best
we can see now it's a different debate to think about what happened what happened in the beginning of Ramadan I know we have a big problem in this country and honestly to solve this problem I'm gonna say this and I hope someone's hearing me please
make some money by the way I do this I think the simple solution to this is
most people don't know why For God's sake when did the TV become your
TV as well
this TV is only a mechanism for the people behind it and broadcasting
what they have most of the Muslim in this country so far they based it on you know they based on several factors some based on their homeland some based on the news for some countries some basic economic days are based on Saudi Arabia but based on Saudi Arabia seriously.
You seriously look at the fact that Saudi Arabia has 12 different places to see the moon and
the moon and honestly the same thing happened
before now that
none of them see the moon so how do they sign the moon go to some guy that came from the heels of the mountains he saw the moon I
don't even know why his name is
I guess the guys that own guns but white eyebrows and one of his eyebrows.
But it's kind of
like the rest of the world and always the rest of the most of the rest of the world is that one day two days out. And they seem to be you know, one day two days early. I don't know maybe some reason that you know that land a lot less.
Before anyone else I don't know about
that we need to visit so the best way
to listen to this the best way is I would say just get two guys inside you know and get down the South of England and two guys in the north of England right both
directly from from this place place yet. How is it gonna cost us to contribute to this maybe 50 pounds a year or something towards the cost of these debts. He won't take many months to do that together. The cost of the jets to just fly up there and make sure you don't go to people from the same set to one you
will see that definitely I've seen it.
So one thing simple solution but maybe still arguing about the moon and see whether that's a separate issue. Rather we don't know whether this we actually started Ramadan on the first day of Ramadan we started on the 13th day of,
of the of Shabbat. So therefore, every single night is very important for us the 21st right down to 29 to 30 is really important for us to see.
The last 10 days he used to go into seclusion. Now think of it as the word seclusion I know a lot of people
don't leave them in so many different things. Some people is picnic time.
Some people It means a lot of time
on the road and blessings over the last 10 days. Even more.
sending all these nice
green sec collusion that I get myself to get
myself, I might
not be that physically but in my mind goes on.
And that's what is
before he even started getting the affairs sooner the Fed sooner in this deal was what was was
And he stayed there for nights on. And he was just thinking about reform, about reform, how does he reform? How does he change the city? How does it How does change everything around him. So this was a form of Attica, because he's to take his job is to take an account hoping would take three, four days at once. And then he would go up to the, to the Hill to head off, and you said, stay in that game and come back after another three, four nights and take some more food again and go back up there. So this is one of the first Why is this sooner so important before even the sooner
the better we do
some brothers complaining
and you lost your devotion. So I try and go into seclusion before you actually set up a small seclusion smaller, honestly, one minute, 10 minutes, five days before the actual slide. So close your eyes sit down and go into seclusion go into you know, just start seeing maybe 100 times
I'm negating my mind and my thoughts on negating my, what I've seen throughout the day,
I only want to have a lot in my mind at this time.
I'm negating my business, I'm negating my world, I'm negating my wife and my children on the mailing list.
A small type of solution. solution
is a massive, massive Why? Because without one reflecting without removing the bad thoughts inside our, our heart, our hearts and mind, you can't make plays from luck. Because all these things are there. And you know, what happens naturally is the thing you've seen throughout the whole of the day within the business that you have, that's going to automatically come into your head once you start to stop. When you stop when you stop talking. When you stop saying anything.
You automatically those things will
happen anytime you see to the toilet seat.
How do you stop that incident? What How do you stop that is that you've got to be a person who can come into a seclusion when you want and come out of it is a very important part of
that power to stop my whole world at anytime I can stop it and it's not going to bother me. See, this is a big big mess. And I'm saying about you know, most people who are depressed or stressed go to the ocean. This is the problem. The problem is they haven't taught themselves they haven't engaged themselves in how to stop and stop how to stop the stop.
How to solve that.
There has nothing
stopping you just
nothing if I can't do that last.
less, not less, not you your wealth, and all things that belong to you.
And what is
this anything you're attracted to? anything in this world you are attracted to or that is something that you're engaged in all your children specifically let them not put you in an absent mindedness from Allah. Let them not make neglect or from Allah one
Who ever will do that they are in a loss.
And it seems
the biggest problem
is that he is attached to the world, when I told him to get up and start going out there and fight with him, I say they
become so attached to the world with a
distant distance from it, that's what happens when we become so heavy on the air, so much involvement. So we will bring ourselves hours to bring ourselves out, we're going to learn this occlusion. Now this 10 days occlusion for anyone who's going to take out before the rest of us who are going to, you know, use these 10 days to try and practice this, this should penetrate anytime you want. inside, outside, inside any other activity, we will say, anytime I want, I can take myself out, you know, in modern psychology that we teach this they call it anchoring. anchoring is in modern psychology, they teach them how to suddenly you know, bring they say, Okay, I feel
backwards, then they say, Okay, now you're the angry, angry. So what I do in a moment, they're supposed to bring all the good thoughts and make themselves feel delighted again.
Happy again, okay, now the first time it takes about 10 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes, half an hour, to get a really wonderful feeling, again, all the good thoughts and good interaction over that. But eventually they get them down to three minutes. And then eventually they get the time within seconds. So you know that the best the best of a train about people love within yourself.
The idea that they teach them within seconds able to cut off from any bad feeling and bring the good feeling and good good for society.
You have What is it?
What have you got so important that matters to you more than Allah? Because imagine, imagine that there's a God, what would you do that you would not even imagine using us? for less than just want anything about whatever is outside there that's concerning my life, whatever it is, if death came to me, wouldn't concern me.
The answer's no. worries, financial problems, real financial deaths is not going to bother
you children are not well.
Your wife is on the straight path.
So this moment that you will decide if
you should stop and then how to stop everything and allow your important everything.
Allah is great. is not greatest, is a great time.
In Arabic, English, you normally see allies the greatest so they say, Yes, fine, they can express the meaning for what they're supposed to have
done than something but that's something that we left blank. What is that? And why is greater than my life allies greater than my sickness allies greater than my troubles greater than my dad's allies? You know, the people who are my enemies, unlike
and feel that I only need allies right now.
So this submission of 10 days really should be a person should try and make themselves trained in doing this. What it was
stressing was the last 10 days or the last 10 days getting the first
shut down visa is too fast and tight is local government. What does that mean? That means that two things either he wouldn't speak with his wife at all, even in the nights of Ramadan, like
somebody wants to see his wife that they can but in the light of the last time it could even do that or it means that the way somebody that maybe you know your trainer, you fasten your you know, you buckle up for a race or something the same way you
align the last 10 nights like he never used to do before. They say when
increase, but within the last 10 days thing is increased even further. even further. They say he was like he was very
he was like a fast wind he was like a fast when he would spend and he would spend when the last step what were the first 20 days game he would do his
time when he wouldn't necessarily go out of his way to wake up but when the last 10 nights came he made sure that on the night he woke up he woke them up
in the last time he woke them up when it came to the first trilogy nights if there was a slight slight tweak you know 40 minutes he got he got that but in the last 10 nights is to simply be known that he wouldn't sleep I
would you stay awake the entire life used to be awake because these other nights one night in these 10 nights is going to be one night that is more money than all the nights in my entire life. My brothers even one night have imagined imagine I live a life of 60 something years
60 something years one is worth alone 83 years one night alone is worth more than all the rest of the nights in my entire life on this night if somebody does anything is going to be timed by that much so you can imagine I what I want to do is I want to get geared up rather than just in the last 1920 days now has been for us to prepare for this last 10 nights we are now preparing for the last step is what does that mean? That means that this these last 10 nights we don't own these either those of you who are working to try if you haven't already taken time off you should probably take some time off you can take any type of iPhone doesn't matter what you do please is it for the last
20 nights you've been coming home Africa and then you've been basically eating something and then you know maybe a couple of rounds or not you've been sleeping or something these last 10 nights please just do straight after
the nighttime if you think about going to sleep just those two cups imagine a two of cups is like I did those two every night for the whole year for my whole chain years
ago 80 something years
those of us who are you know doing those of us who believe in the apricot you know the apron as I have said this time again before there's a whole debate between a defendant here what are the
right but what I want to say to you is it's not against the sooner to do only eight and no more please remember that if you pick up there
many nights eight
have good news
12 1517 you do the
same as you did only eight and then he said 1215 including the
other two extra guys now these tech guys you know I will say
as as as
I've seen so many brothers
and they woke up 20 minutes outside they're talking
about damage slowly slowly into the car gone home and sat down.
So one thing is
that we do the rest of the
Nothing extra extra boundary friends. And then after that I'm asking you
in the next the next book.
You're gonna have the big time and hopefully
You may be a
or a woman.
That woman is the man
he says in a long time outside
of Muslim, he has said to the cause of a diva, hi, do you mean Holla Holla, he
is better than what the entire part of what the sun sees you have the sun in the side, whatever it comes about in the whole the world, the whole world can change.
And can you imagine doing that on the night of power the night of the night effect?
So there's no time to wait. There's no time to just sit gossiping and so on. In fact, one thing is, you know, I come to the masjid I come, you know, for the last few days, as a friend, know people are talking between
Do you not realize?
he said, no law is rejected, no prize rejected between the advance and the
gossip? How can you sit here and gossip, because that's the
next time I walk in here, we have a chance to talk to him telling him tell him
I was waiting to say the master,
you got a chance to meet him.
You're going to talk to me when a
person comes in, and he sits down he
is just waiting for the demo to stand up.
writes down for you and why'd you sit down and without breaking the attributes of the masculine man.
Either you don't break the rules, and you don't break the etiquettes of the masculine. What does that mean? That means you don't talk as long as you do
it the same way.
to sit down and do nothing.
So, next time relevance.
As long as I
know this, how can we talk? So anyway, back to the actual father itself, what are we going to do on these nights?
The night staff you start crying.
And then after that,
if you stay
lives in his in his time
when he learned once on the
on the waiting for
me, and they said Why do you always need
He said, as long as one
man for the night prayer
and you do not believe him until he finishes then you get the same reward as praying.
You get the same reward as planned the whole night. Then imagine that so don't be the manager.
You don't need
to salvation you
just walk to the handle.
So how do I
how do I you know, to get
just collected. These are not times to talk. Honestly, I met someone
and then someone had told me a wonderful thing. He said that I came to have and I met someone who I hadn't met for a very long time. So I made Salaam with him. And I said to him brother, I love you as a brother and I haven't seen
For the very long time, this is not the time for us to catch up on old moments.
He told me, he said, Please give me a call is my number, we'll talk and we'll catch up. Let me not waste my opportunity of doing this day of meaner and meaner lenders Not only is not rude,
guys, you know
he gets a bit too
in the last 10 days,
I want us to get into a habit that we get into.
We understand he's not trying to catch up on moments that we missed. These are not trying to say, you know, random martial law, you know, and how are you and what's happening.
It is a necessity to talk to somebody you want to know about somebody you want to know about somebody.
But not outside of that. So
then what happened after that was bursting, and you come home is relaxation time slot.
For those of you that
didn't come back, say
he used to get a map, a map. And this map he wrote within the last 10 days, and used to put the map down in a certain place
to sit on the map. And that meant you did not
he did not
as soon as
he was either bigger reflection, or he was some atmosphere or he was doing whatever it was he was on that path you did not talk to them.
And then you're like, Okay, I can do
where he needed his hair to be washed. So then he would come to the
side of the mustard and he would put his duck his head inside the government allows you to wash his hair out okay, in the tradition, but that was one of the few things that he did that and then sometimes he had to go and you know, really himself so he would go outside the mosque for that to come straight back without having conversation with individuals or when somebody wants to talk to you about the dean I really important that
he would have done that but not for any other
last 10 days throughout his life for every single
hole days or nine days
depending on the month
in the last year
during Ramadan is different debris the company
used to come and meet you Ray used to go over the brand
up to whatever was revealed after that time, but he said in the last year of my logic came to me and he read I read game or even
in the last day was twice and he got it he got the message
my brother's This has been your home and so on. This is now the time you want to meet me. Can you imagine? If
you do three days a day,
10 days, three days a day you finished one four and by the end of the day.
The head start tomorrow just in case is 99 days, nine days you might be shorter the last three days. So what you do is tomorrow. I want to go tonight even start
tonight. If you can do three news every day as one grant in the last 10 days.
Three of those dues will be available. You can multiply you
will be able to do it.
was the last three years. So what you need is this time to
reflect and reflect as well allows you
to sit down and reflect one of those eyes will give you to reflect. So you just sit down, and you just close your eyes, and you reflect, please don't, don't sit down too long, just blood circulation is not flowing, then you're going to start a browser that you'll be asleep. Don't lock yourself in, obviously, if you become sleepy, get up, get up and start doing something different. Some things are moving around, you know, get the circulation of blood inside your body. So what are you going to reflect? you reflect the idea of the poor, and you can choose any I want really, but
he is with you, wherever you are, he is with you, wherever you are, in terms of his knowledge in terms of the site in terms of his hearing
about me, then I see myself getting up and I'm walking off the stage with me, like watching me alive, see me
going to my kitchen or come to my living room. And each one
is a practice. Why? Because we want to get to the
point of the excellent question was are a lot
of the time, I'm going to do my car ride with you all the time of like watching
a lot alive with me. So I'm now in my wife to my husband,
colleagues, so move yourself around in your mind. And as many places as you can take your mind in the daily lives and routines that we have. And you start to reflect on this if you can reflect on the on the idea of of, for example, Allahu
Allah, this is an
insane thing about the creation of God, we don't think about God Himself. We don't imagine God we have no imagination.
But in the creation of a lot, we may think, and we should think
that they think about the creation of the heavens of the earth, and the creation of our illustrations on
the deep trance of
the seas and the mountains of the
universe is so wonderful. That is one of the things now we figure this whole thing called meaning thought and reflection. On the bigger vehicle, there are so many you could do and I want you to
make sure that these words is 100 times 100 times 100 100 times is better than better than whatever the sun shines upon the whole world, whatever it contains. So make it to the top of my ticket every single day. And they also have
this, there's another Elisa says, I start to love
100 times a day
100 times a day as a sum that we should follow him
that should be added on
or maybe more or less.
you do 100 times it will be another 100 there is so much
as I said, it's like be free in 10 stages that you're getting 10 reward that you can see if you can also do these nights every single time to set up the sphere. The sphere they say that it is five different iterations right where it's acceptable for you to do each iteration
in it but together it's accepted it hasn't hasn't
happened happy to have have also said that it's acceptable to do
so so a lot of the fear is that you will do a salon lead to ally What have you
You can do it 75 times in each single regard.
That's a total of 300 times, I'll tell you a very simple way of doing it by doing this.
He was 80 years of sins forgiven.
Imagine how much
that will only take you about 45 minutes to do or maybe less than that for you to do. So you use it.
Before every Fatiha, you say
that's the one you got to remember, every other time is 10. So if you say you have to say the sutra, and then before you going to go, before you go, do you say that
10 times 10 times
10 times, and you can easily you can count, you just press your fingers, especially where they are, as you're holding
it, then you know that we're
going to move
on. And after that we say get 10 times inside your room, then you get up
10 times against
us to do after
you say 10 times and then you come back sit in between us you sat down if you want to say that
then you go back and
you say 10 times again, that's a completed 75 times when you get back up, right up. And you're standing again before you say how many times 15 times Okay, then the rest of it goes continues the same for the whole entire second round. So second
what is it what is it
and then you get up before
the 15 times.
So there are many different relations, this is the easiest narration to follow.
try and do this or Avast if you can, every single night if you can't, and you do it every single week, you know that every month or every year that you can apply at once at least once in your lifetime to the news.
So you will add that every single night to Salah then come to the calculate apricot, a wonderful apricot, you can Okay, if you look at that.
he says two things two qualities about the calculator.
Don't ask me about the beauty of his his ricotta cheese to do. And don't ask me about the length of
the longer we can do that in terms of standing and longer we can be in a room long as well, as well, especially when you try and prolong that. And
this is another part of our lives every single night for the last 10 nights. On top of that, I want you not to forget every single night.
Take 100 pounds,
they do end up on the side and every night down in the message box or in one of the pieces outside there every night you because one of those nights is guaranteed you've given some 20 pounds, or 10,000 pounds will not add as much as every day I get
every single every single right. So when you've done all of that, all right, what gives you the rest of your time if you do the rest of your time with as many
of your homies you can do or you can say hospital while you're alive enough for us is the best of people are making the progress of the meetings that we can depend upon. So has been a lot
you can just say the
body you can just do your
And he knows what do you do? Try and read certain books up
inside the book all the
time to get those books ready for your essay.
Have you lost and raise them and use them in the last 10 days, those of you who haven't gotten
what you can use go home. And in the nighttime session, the women is
that they take a curtain or something, and they put it into one corner of the room. And they go into seclusion in that corner of the room. So the rest of the house knows them in those periods that they can see that
if you're a man in row, and you can choose one corner of your house or your room
and do your use inclusion. And the hope is that we get close to the last minute of what we say to you is that no matter how much we do, you think that you've done enough
wrong fires within a day.

He was outside the car just outside the car.

Why are you crying?
He had done the whole of the 30 days in the house, not just the last the whole of the 30 days now. And during those 30 days. He finished one full day and one night 64 and 64 and the whole of the Ramadan in the house.
Somebody said Why
are we alone? He said I'm crying because my
mom and I haven't been able to worship
that please remember this in your mind. Let us do our best. We have
