You're listening to Ramadan reflections but with the same money this summer, Mufti Hussain will be teaching the Hadith intensive, students will study the different methods of compilation and preservation of ahaadeeth. The major role female scholars have played in Hadeeth preservation, the biography of famous Hadith narrators, as well as different collections and excerpts from famous heavy texts like Sahil Bahati. For more information visit Hadeeth intensive.com smilla manana Hema comm to learn.

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

The Hungry learner waka file so nominal anybody can learn your stuff on

00:00:35--> 00:00:40

sanada So you did receive a half a million via water rescue was having a look via my blog.

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

One thing that you'll study in Islam

00:00:48--> 00:00:55

is that every person from a loss of planet Earth on its creation is given equal opportunity.

00:00:57--> 00:01:35

The opportunity to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala is available to every person, even though at certain times there may be restrictions. For example, a person may not have wealth, the companion came to the Prophet that a lot of money was sent them and they said our messenger of Allah we don't have wealth, and our wealthy brothers gifts. So where's our opportunity to give sadaqa so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then told them your method of giving sadaqa even though it may not be financial, is that you say Subhan Allah, that you say and hamdulillah that you say Allahu Akbar, the women came to the Prophet sallallahu it was sent him instead of messenger of Allah. We

00:01:35--> 00:02:08

aren't able to go in the battlefield and fight like the companion like the male companions do. They swing their sores they throw themselves in the middle of the battlefield. We the women don't have the ability to do that. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, she had to conduct al Hajj, your jihad is to go for Hajj. And therefore you saw the female companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in particularly his wives, they would regularly go to have some of them or go to Hajj every year someone go to Hajj every other year, the opportunity to do good is available to everyone. Now based off that I wanted to share with you a Hadith of the Prophet

00:02:08--> 00:02:42

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And this hadith is narrated by Mr. Mallika, Allahu Allah in his motto, one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was addressing the companions. And he told them, that the nations that came before us, one of the favors that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them was that they have longer lives. As we see in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says regarding new hottie Salaam, philosophy omaheke alphason illa hum Santa Ana, that he remained teaching his people for 950 years such long lives.

00:02:43--> 00:02:57

The Companions a sort of messenger of a life they lived such long lives, that means they had that much more opportunity to do good deeds. And another narration the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was telling the companions about a particular person from Nusra,

00:02:58--> 00:03:33

who lived a very long life 8090 years and every day in his life, he spent so much of it just doing a part of Allah subhanho wa Taala doing such that to Allah doing this doing that doing this making a vow of Allah. When the Sahaba heard this, they said a messenger of Allah, these people have such great opportunity What about us? So the purpose of the law while he was selling made to Archer Allah subhanahu wa tada that a similar opportunity being be given to this oma and Allah subhanahu wa tada revealed a suit of doctrine in the law, who feeling that

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

there are common Laila,

00:03:36--> 00:04:13

Laila to the contrary, hiren mean l Fisher, that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them longer lives, Allah gave you a smaller life. But in this small life that Allah has given you as an another narration the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the average lifespan of the people of my oma is between 60 and 70. And few will live beyond that. But in this small life of 60 to 70 years, Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us an opportunity to live a life of 1000 years. And even more than that, because every year Allah subhanho wa Taala of our lives gives us one night and that night is called Layla to

00:04:15--> 00:05:00

the power of that night. The greatness of that night. The mind of that night is such that a person who utilizes this night, who gives subaqua in this night, who reads for on in this night, who makes law to Allah subhanho wa Taala in this night, who reads kiama Leyland this night, the reward they do a single fold on this night will be multiplied by 1000 months, which equals to roughly 83 years 83 years of a bother are given to a person who dedicates this one night, and it's been Malika rhodiola Hassan says, as narrated by mom, suitor hamdullah here it is a doodle monster that a good deed in later to other charity.

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

Salas, Shaka is greater than 1000 months is greater than 1000 months. Now, what's interesting here is that note that usually when we talk about later the other, we talk about 1000 months. The Quran doesn't say good deeds in later 2000 are equivalent to 1000 months. It actually says, Hi, I'm Michelle Fisher, what does that mean?

00:05:22--> 00:06:01

More than 1000 months, 1000 months is kind of like the bare minimum, that's where it starts. Then when a person does beyond that, the sincerity, the devotion, the sacrifice they make, that is given even more. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is giving us an opportunity to catch up on the reward that we may have missed out on earlier on in the year. And not that only but for the people who've missed out in their life until today. Now you're even being given an opportunity to catch up beyond that. There's a Scot amongst the scholars, there's a discussion that which tonight has more virtue later to israa or later to father. Which night has more virtue later. As we know the purpose of the law

00:06:01--> 00:06:37

while he was sent him was honored on the night of native electron mount Raj with the great honors. So does that night have greater greater virtue or native? And I'm not saying you don't have mahalo tala. He explained this issue very beautifully by saying that Laila to this at all was probably the best night in the life of the Prophet for a long while he was sent him for himself, because that was a night where he was honored beyond any other honor, as political other it is the greatest night for every other believer, because this is our chance to make up this is the chance or we hit the turbo button in our car and we really take off and we catch up on all the opportunity that we missed out

00:06:37--> 00:07:01

on. This is once again a manifestation of Allah subhanho wa Taala as mercy upon us that Allah subhanho wa Taala is giving us a chance, people who neglect Allah subhanho wa Taala people who openly and we accepted that we neglect the right the rights that we have for Allah subhanho wa Taala yet Allah subhana wa tada is giving us a chance to find this night and if we find it Allah will resurrect us with the worshipers on the Day of Judgment, a lower right in our book of deeds

00:07:03--> 00:07:42

83 plus months of a Baba 83 plus years of a bother for every person in this gathering, inshallah, how do we find little clutter? So regarding that we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam give different guidances to the companions. There's actually one narration that two Sahaba came to the province that allamani was sent them and in front of the province that allamani was sent on they were arguing and the prophets of Allah Juan he was sent and said to them stop arguing before you started arguing Allah subhana wa tada informed me when the exact night of later two other was I was just going to inform you but the no husa the lack of Buttercup that the Buddha was sucked away

00:07:42--> 00:08:00

because of your argument also caused me to forget that night meaning Allah subhana wa tada remove the exact value in the exact night of one latest chocolate that is in the scholars. They say there's buttercream that to the Baraka is what if everyone knew there was one night? Which night wasn't able to recall that what we even care for the other 2829 nights of Ramadan?

00:08:01--> 00:08:40

Yes or no? We wouldn't. Right? So Allah subhanho wa Taala saved it and said search for it now. Because now as we search for it, we will use every night of Ramadan, the Sahaba and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In the beginning days, they would do Attica for 30 days from upon how many days 30 days. And the reason why they would put themselves in the machine for 30 days is because those were the 30 days they were looking for later. And then after that Allah subhanho wa Taala inform the prophets of Allah while he was sent him that later was in the last 20 nights. So the prophets of Allah who it was sent him then for some time, did Antica for how many nights 20

00:08:40--> 00:09:13

nights and then after that the prophets of Allah whiny was cinemas in format Allah subhanho wa Taala that later the quarter is in the last 10 nights and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then after that every year what would he do in the last 10 nights he would do a tick off and he was searched for labor to cover a search for a different color and use whatever he could the energy he had in one narration you know when the purpose of a lot of money was sent him at the beginning of Ramadan when he introduced the month of Ramadan, the Hooda he gave well talking about it being a shadow Mubarak and a blessing month, he said Son Allah while he was sent him The great thing about

00:09:13--> 00:09:52

Ramadan is that it is a night that is greater than 1000 months. In this night is later to call in this night is opportunity for you to be honored about loss of Hannah hautala then the prophets of Allah Juan de was sent him in one narration told the companions that if you're looking for later to call them, let me narrow that window down a little more for you. Not only is it in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, it's in which nights the odd nights of the last time that's from one so now how many nights are we searching for five? Does this sound familiar to you guys? But Salah It started off at 50 then a lot narrowed it down, narrowed it down, narrowed it down and narrowed it down all

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

the way to the how many so now we're left at the end. Five and musante salaam said what? You're almost still going to neglect it. It's still too much for them.

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

It says if we look at this whole, this whole scenario here, it started off with searching for 30 nights, 20 nights, 10 nights. Allah subhanaw taala made it so easy for us that even from 10 nights unlimited how many nights, five nights and Mark my words Some of us are going to spend these five nights sleeping. Some of us are going to spend these five nights catching up on what Donald Trump said today, some of us are going to spend these five nights watching something on on YouTube or watching Gordon Ramsay cook some food, you know, that's where we're going to spend these waste these last five minutes doing silly things, wasting our time, when these are times for us to really catch

00:10:36--> 00:11:06

up on. I know, there are some of us who will say that I don't have the ability to react the cup and I accept that. Okay, if you don't have the ability to do I'll take off for 10 days. But tell me who here cannot do their take off every day from multiple fuzzer. At least on the odd nights, we should come to the machine from multiple fudger with our family members and say that these odd nights, at least from Mother and Father, we will spend it in the machine. And if I need to sleep, I'll sleep in the machine that we're able to emulate and the machine will have a brotherhood and people will gather together and they will talk about the DNA in the machine better than me being at home and

00:11:06--> 00:11:17

being distracted. That's the purpose of Attica, just finished earlier on my father called me. He said Hussein, I'm going to take off for 10 days. Give me some advice. It's really awkward giving your own father advice by the way.

00:11:18--> 00:11:33

I said to him Father, you know, I'm just going to say one thing to you. If you want to go for your take off and you want this to take off to be meaningful. My only request to you is this much. Just promise me you won't take your phone with you in the masjid leave it behind. And he said but but

00:11:35--> 00:12:03

my memory is weak was a lumberyard narrator I don't know what if I need something I said? That's why Allah subhanaw taala created pen and paper. If you can remember something, what do you do? You know, back in the day, people used to have these phone books that they will keep in the pocket. I will alphabetical. You guys remember those small little phone books, kids have no idea what I'm talking about. But for those of you who remember, they would carry these small little phone books that people would have. And they would have their diary and they'd write numbers in there. I said that you had five of those. I remember because you used to make me search for the number in those books

00:12:03--> 00:12:37

every time and I couldn't read your writing. So why don't you just write those numbers down and leave your phone behind? And believe it or not, he left his phone behind. And right before he went in for takeoff. He called me he said Hussein, I think I made the right decision. I said that 10 days from now you're gonna tell me I know I made the right decision. But not these nights of other these nights that are before us. And tonight is one of those nights tonight is the 21st night of Ramadan. Which means that if there is a possibility of later the other which pot which night can be a possible later to cuddle tonight can be that night. So what do we do if we find data to call that

00:12:37--> 00:12:59

this is a question now if tonight is later, what can we do? The first thing I encourage you to do spend even a few moments of your night in Africa off in the machine. And these moments that you're sitting here right now listening to me can be considered ethical. All you need to do is make an intention. Oh Allah. I am in the state of Africa as long as I am in the machine. Now way too soon. Natalia Attica madam.

00:13:00--> 00:13:33

Oh a lot I intend to pick up as long as I'm in the machine. For every moment you are sitting here right now you are being rewarded with the reward of etica and you are getting a partial reward of ethica the full reward for your efforts 10 days, but at least a partial reward is going to take off you can get right now. The second thing we know the progress that along while he was still able to give sadaqa in the month of Ramadan gifts upon this night if tonight is Ramadan and you'll give $1 sadaqa. It's as if you've given $1 setup offer at three years straight and Allah will not decrease you one penny of your reward. And that's the minimum by the hydro minute efficient. Go back to that

00:13:33--> 00:14:15

I have the Quran and remember right and some of you are probably thinking wow, that's too big of a reward. That's why I lost said Well I've got my latest other mini you really won't ever appreciate how great this night actually is. Read some put on read a few pages. If tonight is and you read five pages of the Quran insha Allah, Allah will reward you for reading five pages of Quran every day for how many years? At three years. This is an act for you to do. If you and I are lazy people and we don't do the 100 Salah come to the machine and pray behind our beloved mom and tutor Chi you read and Allah will give you the reward of reading to Dhaka every night for at least at three years. I

00:14:15--> 00:14:18

suddenly a lot one that came to the professional level it was said.

00:14:19--> 00:14:21

And she asked him she said O Messenger of Allah.

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

If I find out later to the other What should I do?

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

And this hadith here teaches us a very important lesson. She said are messing it up a lot if I find later two other and how do you know if you found me a little further. Those are other narrations that give us a description of what the moon will look like. The dampness in the earth and the calmness and that's another narration and many narration that describe what leaders will gather will actually look like visibly when a person searches for it. She said O Messenger of Allah, if I find later to other What should I do, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to her, read the following the law that night and I encourage all of you to join

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

Right now and read this block and memorize this block and think of this block for the remainder of your Ramadan and keep repeating this block for the remainder of your own been in particular the odd nights Don't let a day or night pass by without a reading this blog Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Allah Houma in naka approven to have Bala Africa far from me, Oh Allah, you love to pardon and forgive. Our food is different from the food. The food is to forgive, authorized to forgive our food is to wipe away to erase. Not only are we asking a lot to forgive us for saying Allah make our bad deeds as if they never even existed Allahumma in makafui You're the one who has that ability to help will

00:15:45--> 00:16:02

offer you love to forgive fatwa on me Oh 510 Allah, so pardon me or pardon us, you know what I mean? And we say I mean to that today and the last encouragement last advice I have for you, is on the nights of on the odd nights the possible nights of later to

00:16:04--> 00:16:44

be punctual on praying your Isha salah and your fighter Salah with Gemma in the masjid. You guys understand that? There's a reason why I'm saying this and I'll share the truth with you shortly. But let me repeat it again. So you understood on the odd nights of the last 10 nights of Ramadan, be extra particular cancel your thought ballots if that's what's delaying you. But you make sure you pray you're a shell saw with Gemma in the masjid. And you pray your father saw with Gemma in the masjid because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said mon Sol Alicia fija Martin fucka Anima calm and this full name woman Salah so happy Gemma teen fucka Anima sola Laila Kula, the one who

00:16:44--> 00:17:05

prays Isha Salah in congregation as if that person has worshipped a lot half of the night. There are some of you sitting here who've taken that reward already so far in Ramadan, and there are some of us who haven't. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and the one who then follows that up with a fighter salah and congregation, that person will be given the reward as if they worship the entire night.

00:17:07--> 00:17:41

If you can catch these two things, Allah will give you the reward of worshiping Him all night, every night, for at three years minimum. I keep repeating this again and again because I want you to understand, this is not a moment to be lazy. This is not a moment to be forgetful. This is the moment for you to cry, every tear will multiply for at three years, every good deed that comes to your heart, be obedient to your parents go and kiss them on the forehead, massage their feet, serve them go and serve the football, do whatever you can do something good though, on these nights and don't waste them. Because only Allah knows if we'll get the chance to see our fine linens and

00:17:41--> 00:18:15

clutter again in our lives repaired at a loss of honohan what that allows us to benefit from the lives of others. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala allows us to live in later together again and again and allows us to find it and allows us to pray to Him, worship Him and allows us to be true beneficiaries of these great bounties and blessings and gifts given to us by Allah subhanho wa Taala because I promise you later to tada is nothing short of one of the greatest gifts. Allah subhanaw taala has given specifically to the home of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allahu Allah and Muhammad Sallallahu taala said it was heavy rain.
