So, the kumbha hula, the

00:00:44--> 00:00:51

respected scholars, beloved students, friends and elders in Islam.

00:00:53--> 00:00:58

We have gathered today because it is the 15th night of Shabbat.

00:00:59--> 00:01:13

And as we are sitting here, we are seated with different mindset, different information coming from different platforms due to the access we have to these information through social media.

00:01:15--> 00:01:22

Someone might have read that it is an innovation someone might have read that it is asuna.

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

So, what is the reality

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

in this matter?

00:01:30--> 00:02:18

The 15th night of shabaan has been a subject of debate amongst the scholars in its authenticity. So, let us understand that yes the narrations that are coming to us regarding the 15th night of shabaan are weak, they are weak, we are not denying it. But there are so many narrations coming regarding 15th night of shabaan that one is compelled to accept that this night does hold some kind of significance. Are you getting my point? The narrations are weak. But there are so many narrations that one has to accept that there is something there. There's something in this night. That is why even

00:02:19--> 00:02:41

mentions the same thing that yes the narrations coming to us a week. But there are so many narrations that one is compelled to accept that this night does hold significance. What to do in this night, whether to fast or not fast. It is a different topic of its own. inshallah we'll talk about that later on. But

00:02:42--> 00:02:53

if we are gathered here then we have gathered for a reason. And the reason is to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala in this night, because it holds significance.

00:02:55--> 00:02:57

Respected elders and friends.

00:02:58--> 00:03:14

Now how can one benefit from this night? And how is this night blessed at night? How is this night a blessed at night? You know the best way a believer can benefit from this night is by asking for forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:03:15--> 00:04:04

Why? Because there are so many narrations regarding forgiveness in this night. It comes in a narration prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that in this night, Allah subhanho wa Taala gazes at his creation, he looks at his creation. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives each and every creation except for two except for to number one, an idolater a person who has to ascribe partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two, a person who has to harbor ill feelings regarding another brother in his heart. These are the only two people not forgiven in this night. And this comes in the generation of Muslims. According to another generation, everyone is forgiven

00:04:04--> 00:04:18

in this night, except for two number one was to harbor ill feelings regarding another brother. Number two, a mother is not forgiven in this night. So there is one thing common in these two Heidi in these two narrations

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

and it is breaking the rights of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala The first one is an idolater everyone sits here No One No One has come here because he doesn't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala Everyone is here because he believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala right. But the second one harboring ill feeling regarding another Muslim brother. That is what we are supposed to worry about. And inshallah we will elaborate more on this method later on. You know, they say that keep your phone and your heart so clear that if someone has to ask you at any given time to show it to them, we shouldn't be shy.

00:05:01--> 00:05:32

Today forget about our hearts. We can't even show a phone to someone, you know, when we give it to someone to check, obviously it is against the ethics ethics for a person to to start scrolling. Right. But if we give it to someone to check, and if you start scrolling, he will state will straightaway Snagit the you might end up seeing something which you're not supposed to see. Forget about our hearts. I'm only talking about our phones, then what more about our hearts? If they are to be open today, can we show it to others? Let us ask you a question.

00:05:34--> 00:06:16

So I was talking about the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In this slide, the second narration, eyeshadow, the amount Allah mentions that on the 15th night of Siobhan I saw prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam performing salah and he went into such the end he prolonged his such da to such an extent that I got scared that you see is he still alive or not? So I even started touching his legs to check if he's alive. So prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam moved his legs. And then at that Ayesha mentions that I heard the Prophet of Allah, crying out to Allah subhanho wa Taala with the words Allahumma inni bhumika be rebar come in Socratic Allah tala, I seek

00:06:16--> 00:06:36

your refuge in your happiness from your anger will be more alpha coming robotic. I seek your refuge from your punishment in your pleasure, while also becoming an Allah Allah I seek your protection from you.

00:06:38--> 00:07:22

Now Seaton, Allah, I cannot praise you enough. And the karma of nature Alana sick and you are the way you have praised yourself. So even prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asking for forgiveness on the 15th night of Shabbat. It comes in another narration so Pamela What a beautiful narration an Ayesha mentions the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me, that on the 15th night of Shabbat, Allah subhana wa Taala forgives more people. Then the hair, which is found on the on the ships have been local. Bangkok was a tribe, which was famously known for their great flock for their animals, plenty animals. So Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says that Allah

00:07:22--> 00:07:30

subhanho wa Taala forgives more people in this night, then the head which is found in all those animals,

00:07:31--> 00:07:33

Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from those

00:07:35--> 00:08:24

and it comes in another generation. Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that in this night, from the sunset, till dawn, Allah subhanho wa Taala comes on the lowest of heavens, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala starts making an announcement. Is there someone to seek for forgiveness? So that I forgive? Is there someone to ask for prosperity? So I grant him prosperity, prosperity, is there someone to ask for relief in his struggles? So I grant him relief from his struggles. So if a person has financial issues, this is the night if a person thinks he has transgressed, he has broken all the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the night if a person thinks he's going

00:08:24--> 00:08:56

through struggle, nothing seems to be right. This is the night and Subhanallah there are many other narrations regarding other nights with the same weddings that Allah subhanho wa Taala comes on the on the first sky and he asks the same question, but in those narrations it is mentioned that Allah tala only does that in the third part of the night at the time of tahajjud. But when it comes to 15 night of Shabbat, Allah subhana wa Taala starts making this announcement from Muslim which we already performed to tomorrow fudger inshallah.

00:08:58--> 00:09:14

So, that is the significance of this night and we are supposed to understand one thing from all these narrations let us reconcile with Allah subhanho wa Taala today, let us return to Allah subhanho wa Taala today, no matter how many commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala we have broken

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala is ready to forgive ya iva de alladhina

00:09:19--> 00:09:59

Hussain Lukla to me Rama Tila, don't be despondent of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala people will talk that is why people are creative, they are going to talk about you and I that this book valuable prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this book bear about Allah then who are you and I, that does not focus on what people have to say let us return to Allah. Let us reconcile with Allah no matter what we have done in the past. Do we all make that intention today inshallah. inshallah. So that is the first thing we understand from the 15th night of Siobhan to ask for forgiveness from Allah, and Alhamdulillah we have all made Toba today, there is no restriction in

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

Toba, Allah tala doesn't say that you have to come with $10,000 $500. To ask for forgiveness, zero, Allah tala doesn't say you have to come in the middle of the night. Allah Allah doesn't say you have to come to cover to ask for forgiveness. Wherever you are, in whatever condition you are, just say Allah I have transgressed. Well ALLAH forgive my sins and Allah says, I will forgive. Allah says, I will forgive. That is the first thing. The second thing. There are many questions we receive. And it is that what are we supposed to do in this night? What actions are we supposed to perform in this night? There is no particular authentic narration which talks about a particular action that we are

00:10:39--> 00:11:17

supposed to perform this Salah or we are supposed to do this ibadah there is no such narration. Yes, a person should try and seek forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala by performing Salah by performing optional prayers and inshallah Allah subhana wa Taala accepted Allah subhanho wa Taala we accepted. The third question which we normally received is that what are we supposed to do tomorrow? Are we supposed to fast on the 15th of Shaban, then let us understand that again, there is no particular narration which talks about only fasting on the 15th of Shabbat. It was a practice of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam too fast on the 14th 15th and 16th of every month not

00:11:17--> 00:12:01

only in Siobhan, but in Siobhan prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to fast a lot, he used to fast a lot and the reason why he used to fast a lot, which he has mentioned is that in the month of Siobhan the annual deeds of a believer are presented in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam used to say that when my deeds are presented in front of Allah subhana wa Taala I want that they are presented while sign fasting, that is why he used to fast a lot a lot in the month of Shabbat. So, if a person is in entailing a fasting tomorrow, then he should fast on the 15th and 16th in any other day inshallah, okay. So, that is the that is the

00:12:01--> 00:12:40

masala regarding fasting on the 15th of Shabbat. This was related to 15th of Shabbat and we we normally get this information every year, we are all aware about it, it is not something new. But there is another thing which is always mentioned whenever a buyer is given regarding 15th of shabaan, which I already mentioned, and it is that everyone is forgiven in this night, except for a few group of people. Number one, as I mentioned, a person who has to ascribe partners with a lot no one here says that he doesn't believe in Allah number two a person was to harbor ill feelings and that is something which we have to work very hard on. There. There are some other narrations which

00:12:40--> 00:13:07

also mentioned, other few groups like a person who has to disobey his parents is not forgiven in this slide. A person who has to break ties with his family members with his friends is not forgiven in this slide. You know, let us understand this why it is so important that Allah Allah is not saying that in this night. Everyone is forgiven except for the person who misses his Salah, or who doesn't. First, let's only talk about good conduct and character. Why? Let us understand this.

00:13:08--> 00:13:49

In the beginning period of Islam, when prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started preaching Deen he was asked mal Islam. What is the definition of Islam? prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied booney al Islam Allah comes in the foundation of Islam is based on five things. Look at the example of Israel Allahu alayhi wa sallam is using. He's using the example of construction. He's using the example of a building that the foundation of Islam is based on five things number one, they witness that Allah subhanho wa Taala is one and prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the messenger. Number two, perform your Salah number three first in the month of

00:13:49--> 00:14:32

Ramadan. Number four, give out your mandatory charity give out your Sokka number five go for Hajj. This was in the beginning period of Islam and prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said these are the pillars. And when a person has to start building a house, and if he is only done with the pillars, he is not going to say this is my house. He's going to say this house is under construction. My house is under construction or someone is building a hospital. If only the pillars are in place. They are not going to say this is a hospital. They're going to say this hospital is under construction. Now let us come to the towards the end of the life of Prophet Muhammad

00:14:32--> 00:14:54

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his final Hajj says enable is to live with me Mama Karim Allah Allah. I have been sent to complete your lifestyle to complete your good conduct and character who thummim to complete something.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

So when in the beginning prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked

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

He said, The foundation of Islam is based on five things. And towards the end he's saying, the completion of this religion is based on good conduct and character. The roof of the of the house of Islam is good conduct and character. That is why in the last days when prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was asked by Amrit nabasa the no prophet of Allah Muslim same question, which was asked in the beginning, Mal Islam, what is his reply? What is his reply? It armata with evil kalaam, feeding others and having a sweet tongue. Same question, different reply, feeding others and having a sweet tongue. And when a person has a sweet tongue, what law he lives in effect in every person's

00:15:53--> 00:16:09

life. And I'll give you an example to that. We all know Professor moolah in our society, Dr. moolah when his son passed away, what was everyone say? Gentlemen? Beautiful person. Golden men. Why were they saying that?

00:16:11--> 00:16:28

I still remember two years ago. I think it was two years ago when I gave it my on on the 15th of Shaban. And he met me outside. And the words that he shared with me, I still remember them. You know why? Because they were sweet words. And today I'm talking about

00:16:29--> 00:16:36

Yeah, is an example in front of us. When a person has a sweet tongue. He has an impact on each and every person's life.

00:16:38--> 00:16:44

And that is what prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is explaining to us again, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is asked

00:16:45--> 00:16:47

Are you an Islamic of the?

00:16:48--> 00:17:34

Who is the best person in McKinney? Who is the best person in makini? What is the reply of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam man Saleemul Muslim Muna, mainly Sunny, where that person is the best person who doesn't harm someone with his hands or with his stomach. There is another hadith of Luffy sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the best of you is he who's most beneficial to the society. If we can't be from that group. Let us not be from from this group, where we are harming others. nella suparna with Allah guiders May Allah subhanho wa Taala protectors. Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is seated with a group of people and someone says that oh prophet of

00:17:34--> 00:18:05

Allah, there is a lady. She performs her salah and she loves to fast, but she has a harsh, harsh tongue. The Prophet of Allah said she's going to go in Jana. I'm not saying this. Who are we to decide about someone going in Jana, Jana, whatever Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke, it was what he Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said she'll go in Jannah. Then they said no, there is another lady who doesn't perform her Salah or who doesn't fast, but she has good conduct and character. Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said she was going

00:18:07--> 00:18:08

she will go engine.

00:18:09--> 00:18:27

Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is seated with Abu Bakar and he says that there are 360 qualities of good conduct and character 360 branches of good conduct and character. If a person has one of them in Him, He will enter into Jannah

00:18:28--> 00:19:11

Allah tala who says that oh prophet of Allah, do I have any of those qualities in me, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam replies, or boubakeur. You have all the 360 qualities in you Subhana Allah, something off the topic, look at the affiliate of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam look at the close ones of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam look at the people prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to make much rarer with the head all the 360 branches have good qualities in them. Who are our affiliates today? Who are our advisors today? That is something we have to learn. That is something we really have to learn. Mila subhanho wa Taala

00:19:11--> 00:19:56

guide us so all these narrations are telling us one thing, good conduct and character. And you know I'm no way trying to justify that one is allowed to to to abandon his Salah or when is allowed to not fast May Allah subhana wa Taala forbid, may Allah subhanho wa Taala Forgive us, but let us understand. Today we have understood the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala but we haven't understood what is supposed to be the outcome of those commands. Let us look at the five pillars of Islam. You know Allah Allah says in the Holy Quran in alladhina kufr Amina Al Kitab al machete kin affinity Jana Holly denorfia hula Cahoon shadow Berea a person who doesn't believe in the Almighty

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

Who doesn't believe in Allah. He's from the worst of

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

the creation of allah subhanaw taala he's not a good human so who is a good human the one who believes in allah so the caliber of scaling someone as a good human through eman is clearly understood from this verse a person has to accept islam automatically supposed to be a good human number two salah why do we perform salah allah says in the salah

00:20:25--> 00:20:37

your salah is supposed to stop you from immodesty it is supposed to stop you from wrongdoings why do we fast quotevalet como cm kamakoti barnala de la mina

00:20:39--> 00:20:47

fasting has been made mandatory upon you why so that you become from the people of taqwa who are the people of taqwa vasari

00:21:29--> 00:21:59

oh prophet of allah take zakat from them so that you can purify them you can make them into good humans what is the outcome of hedge fund for the female hedge fund out of a koala for sukawati dollar village when a person has to intend of going to hedge no speaking few time no fighting no argument what is all of this it is becoming a good human so basically the five pillars of islam are teaching us about becoming good humans

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

allah subhanho wa taala grant is good conduct and character respected elders and friends all these ladies are teaching us one thing if we want the forgiveness of allah subhanho wa taala tonight the way we have decided to reconcile with allah subhanho wa taala let us reconcile with the creation of allah subhanho wa taala if we have wronged someone let us go and ask for forgiveness not only ask for forgiveness but try and rectify the situation

00:22:30--> 00:22:49

you know subhan allah we disobeyed our parents we have disobeyed our parents may allah allah forgive us when our when we were young our parents take care of 567 kids at once when we grow up 567 kids together are not ready to take care of one father and one mother

00:22:52--> 00:23:23

we have brothers we grew up together madrasa together school together if someone has to touch my brother and therefore you but when we grow up we forget we forget we are not ready to talk to each other due to financial issues or any other issues family issues we say something wrong to our wives our children to the young ones to the elderly ones but we don't realize what we are doing and then we are left with nothing with regret but but regret

00:23:24--> 00:23:52

two brothers they grew up together they have the love they fought one passes away and that is when one realizes i wish only one side went to him and i say to him that oh my brother let us put everything aside let's just put everything aside now my brother we only realize that when it is too late we end up regretting we end up uttering words to our wives and our children which we are not supposed to and then we are left with nothing but regret look at this example

00:23:53--> 00:23:59

of of regretting later on you know harun rashid very successful king

00:24:01--> 00:24:17

harun rashid had an argument with his wife and he ended up uttering to his wife that tonight if you sleep in my country or in the in the country where i grueling then i give you a divorce

00:24:18--> 00:24:58

successful later on as i said we are left with nothing but regret he understood that i wasn't supposed to say that what to do now what should i do i want to take her back and she can't even travel at that time there was no mode of transport which we have now right they only had camels and horses and look at the kingdom of harun rashid it was so vast even if a person has to start traveling he couldn't make it till morning so he started calling all the movies give me a solution give me a solution move this up i was angry he was very angry i said it out of anger i didn't mean it but i said it out of anger

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

so then he

00:25:00--> 00:25:45

Follow the movies. Everyone said that there is nothing you can do. So then he asked that is there any student remaining of Imam Abu hanifa the amount that we follow that I follow? So they said that is yes, there is this one student by the name of Imam Abu Yusuf Yaqoob Rahmatullah Yani this so he said called, now Mr. Magoo. Yusuf was from a very poor family, very poor family. His father was a laundry men up on one occasion, you know, his neighbor, a Jewish neighbor, he extended his wall on the road. So he mama who Yusuf went to him and told him that you are taking over the rights of others, this is a road for people to pass. So the Jewish replied to him that are you? Are you a king

00:25:45--> 00:26:08

or something that you want to come and start advising me? Are you even traveling in the pelland kin in that shelter which people used to live that was like the Mercedes of that time? Are you even traveling in that, when you come with that? I will, I will break the wall for you, I will give you way that is a mama we used to have such a humble man and from such a poor family. So he is invited by Harun Rashid.

00:26:09--> 00:26:12

And Harun Rashid mentioned mentioned the whole incident to him.

00:26:13--> 00:27:01

So Mr. Yusuf ponders and then he says to him, that there is one way in which the divorce one take place. So the king says how, so he replies that if your wife has to sleep in the masjid today, the divorce will take place. Why? In nun massages Allah, the masjid belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala they don't belong to any individual or any King. They belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala so tell her to sleep in the masjid the divorce will take place. So Hannah, so then, Harun Rashid became very happy, and he made him the Chief Justice of that time, and he gave him 1 million dinar. And as the mamaku Yusuf was going, Harun Rashid said that you deserve respect. Yeah is a parenting for you and

00:27:01--> 00:27:14

00:27:15--> 00:27:16

Can you break the wall?

00:27:18--> 00:28:00

So Subhanallah from this story, we learn Firstly, when we do something wrong later on, we are left with nothing but regret and secondly, the tables can turn anytime the tables can turn anytime. So let us reconcile. Let us reconcile with Allah subhanho wa Taala let us reconcile with the people around us. Let us try and rectify the situation in whatever way we can know Allah subhanho wa Taala guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the ability to benefit the most from this night. Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from those who are forgiven in this night. May Allah subhanho wa Taala present our good deeds in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala in a way where Allah subhanho wa Taala is
