Yeah, you heard Larry and I talk a lot how to Colin sadita slash lecom.

00:03:25 --> 00:03:25

While you're

00:03:28 --> 00:03:33

warming up, I learned how Rasulullah who cerca de fares if I was in Hawaii, and died.

00:03:35 --> 00:03:36

My dear brothers and sisters.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:42

We now approach the end of the month of Ramadan.

00:03:43 --> 00:03:48

And so the countdown begins with the last 10 nights on our doorstep.

00:03:51 --> 00:03:54

And so now is a time to ask ourselves, where do we stand?

00:03:56 --> 00:03:58

How have we been doing so far?

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

And where do we want to be standing by the end of the month.

00:04:05 --> 00:04:07

And so my dear brothers and sisters

00:04:09 --> 00:04:17

if you have been lagging behind so far, then now is the time now is the time to push

00:04:19 --> 00:04:20

and to dig in

00:04:22 --> 00:04:24

and to get yourself back on track.

00:04:26 --> 00:04:27

And if

00:04:28 --> 00:04:38

you are doing good then now is not the time to slow down but rather to increase in the good that we have been doing.

00:04:39 --> 00:04:43

And so by the end of the month of Ramadan,

00:04:44 --> 00:04:47

there will be one of two people.

00:04:49 --> 00:04:51

There will either be the winners or the losers.

00:04:53 --> 00:04:55

And so this is a competition.

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

What's the coup? Ilana zero

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

Timmy Rob Beco modulating how to do haka, how do we somehow it will.

00:05:07 --> 00:05:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala command us. It's not optional. It's a command from Allah subhanho wa Taala race compete

00:05:18 --> 00:05:19

for what?

00:05:21 --> 00:05:22

For a gentleman

00:05:23 --> 00:05:26

who's with is that of the heavens and earth.

00:05:28 --> 00:05:31

And so, Allah subhanahu wa taala

00:05:34 --> 00:05:38

he meets certain times of the year to be virtuous.

00:05:40 --> 00:05:41

Like the month of Ramadan,

00:05:43 --> 00:05:46

like the first 10 days of the hedger.

00:05:48 --> 00:05:51

He meets certain times of the day more virtuous.

00:05:54 --> 00:05:55

Like Fridays,

00:05:57 --> 00:06:01

and in these virtuous times Allah subhanahu wa taharah

00:06:02 --> 00:06:09

you'll notice he need the ending to be more virtuous, and to me to be more better than its beginning.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:18

Until the month of Ramadan, its ending the last 10 days last 10 nights are better than the first 20.

00:06:21 --> 00:06:22

The first 10 days of the ship.

00:06:25 --> 00:06:28

The last two days are better, the day of alpha

00:06:29 --> 00:06:42

and the day of eight are better than the first eight days. Likewise, Friday is a virtuous day, but it's ending the last hour is a virtuous time.

00:06:44 --> 00:06:48

What is the wisdom behind that? The wisdom behind that is

00:06:51 --> 00:06:53

that many people they start off

00:06:54 --> 00:06:55

with a lot of energy.

00:06:58 --> 00:07:00

But then they start to lose steam towards the end.

00:07:02 --> 00:07:14

And so Allah subhanahu a data in order for our determinations not to lose that steam ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. He reminds us that the ending is better.

00:07:16 --> 00:07:17

And so here we are,

00:07:18 --> 00:07:21

in the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan

00:07:24 --> 00:07:27

in which we have Leila to cuddle,

00:07:29 --> 00:07:33

which is better than which is better than 1000 months.

00:07:34 --> 00:07:40

And so the one who was lagging behind in the beginning of the month of Ramadan

00:07:43 --> 00:07:45

if he puts in the effort now

00:07:48 --> 00:07:49

and does well.

00:07:51 --> 00:07:53

He is far better than the one

00:07:57 --> 00:07:59

than the one who started off well.

00:08:01 --> 00:08:10

But then he slowed down towards the end of the month. And that's because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us in normal man who will Hatim

00:08:12 --> 00:08:16

that what depends. What matters about our good deeds

00:08:17 --> 00:08:26

is not the beginning. But rather than ending. Likewise, what matters about our lives is not

00:08:27 --> 00:08:36

what we may have done throughout our lives. But how we ended our lives. Did we end it with a sincere Toba?

00:08:38 --> 00:08:44

How did we end our lives and so the endings are what matter.

00:08:46 --> 00:08:48

And so my dear brothers and sisters

00:08:52 --> 00:08:56

in a few nights we have the last 10 nights of Ramadan

00:09:01 --> 00:09:04

it's a virtuous time. It's a time for a bad

00:09:05 --> 00:09:35

it's a time for doing good deeds. It's not a time to be sleeping. It's not a time to be wasting in doing the things that we have gotten so accustomed to throughout our lives throughout the year. Wasting time on social media, wasting time playing video games, wasting time in social gatherings, wasting time in this and that

00:09:36 --> 00:09:57

but rather it is a time for the Ibadah of Allah subhanahu wa BarakAllahu li Walakum fill Quran Allah when whenever anyone can be Matthew he'd been it would be Hakeem. Kulu Metis maroon still federal law Haley welcome. Well, he said you didn't see me and him and could lead them in a heartbeat for still a funeral who in who and all four are here.

00:10:13 --> 00:10:56

What are all the goofy see everyone? Najwa yeah you handed in a taco ha ha Well, Tom don't have some academic record. What toquilla In Allah hobby room Bhima Maroon? My dear brothers and sisters.

00:10:58 --> 00:11:01

The last 10 nights of Ramadan are special

00:11:02 --> 00:11:06

because of one night and that is Laila to coddle.

00:11:08 --> 00:11:16

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us to help grow Leila Toluca during filler I should

00:11:18 --> 00:11:24

look for this night, the Night of Qadr look for it

00:11:25 --> 00:11:30

anticipated when in the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan.

00:11:33 --> 00:11:39

And so the scholars differed with respect to which night exactly precisely is this night.

00:11:42 --> 00:11:47

But the view of many scholars is that it alternates

00:11:48 --> 00:12:03

and it is not one specific night. And so it alternates every year it's on a different night. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said what he said to look for it to look for this night in one of these nights.

00:12:07 --> 00:12:11

And so my dear brothers and sisters the reason for why Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:12 --> 00:12:24

concealed this night, the reason for why he didn't make it plain and clear that it is this specific night. The reason for that is

00:12:26 --> 00:12:27

so that

00:12:29 --> 00:12:32

those who are truly honest to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:33 --> 00:12:35

they will work hard

00:12:36 --> 00:12:40

throughout these nights, and not just come on one night

00:12:42 --> 00:12:45

while ignoring all the other nights

00:12:50 --> 00:12:52

until these nights are very special.

00:12:54 --> 00:13:00

And so it's important for each and every single one of us to know what to do on these nights.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:03


00:13:06 --> 00:13:08

stay up on these nights

00:13:12 --> 00:13:16

revive these nights with the Rebbe of Allah subhanahu wa taharah.

00:13:18 --> 00:13:20

And so the Prophet sallallahu ala usnm

00:13:23 --> 00:13:26

would worship Allah subhanahu italiana throughout the month of Ramadan

00:13:27 --> 00:13:28

in the night

00:13:31 --> 00:13:33

where he would get up for PR Milady

00:13:35 --> 00:13:39

but he would also sleep a portion of the night.

00:13:40 --> 00:13:46

But then when the last 10 Nights would come, he would get up and stay up the entire night.

00:13:48 --> 00:13:56

And he would make sure that those of his family members who were able to get up and pray he made sure that he woke them up as well.

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

And so if there are any nights of the year in which you should be spending the entire night up worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala it is these these last 10 Nights secondly

00:14:18 --> 00:14:20

what should we be spending these nights doing?

00:14:22 --> 00:14:26

Spend these nights in the Riba of Allah subhanho wa Taala specifically

00:14:27 --> 00:14:28

Korea Malaysia,

00:14:29 --> 00:14:31

Quran Al Quran reciting the Quran

00:14:32 --> 00:14:35

and remembering Allah subhanahu wa Tada

00:14:36 --> 00:14:38

through various kinds of other car

00:14:39 --> 00:14:41

and also a DUA

00:14:44 --> 00:14:55

and so the best state to be in during these knights is in the state of Salah. Why these because it combines all of these activities.

00:14:57 --> 00:15:00

So when you're praying and you

00:15:00 --> 00:15:06

prolong your Theon, you're standing, reciting the Quran they're in

00:15:07 --> 00:15:12

and then throughout the Salah, you remembering Allah, various kinds of ADKAR

00:15:14 --> 00:15:37

and then when you go down and sujood prolonged or sujood, making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said ocra my Hakuna Lahab do Iraq, well who are Sajid for up to a dua the closest that we get to Allah subhanahu wa taala in this dunya is in the state of sujood.

00:15:39 --> 00:15:41

To make a lot of dough out there in

00:15:44 --> 00:15:47

it's all these nights or nights

00:15:50 --> 00:15:52

to be making dua to Allah subhanahu wa Tada

00:15:54 --> 00:16:14

and that's why Allah subhana who were to Anna mentioned in the ayat related to fasting where either so Allah carry daddy honey, for in new Kareem OG Buddha today either the hand fell yesterday booty well you mean who will be your shadow?

00:16:15 --> 00:16:19

If your servants if My servants ask you about me

00:16:22 --> 00:16:24

then indeed I am near

00:16:26 --> 00:16:29

I answer a dua of the one who calls upon me.

00:16:31 --> 00:16:33

So my dear brothers and sisters

00:16:36 --> 00:16:44

tonight is a time for Doha as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Amina Lelisa

00:16:45 --> 00:16:51

that there is an hour in the night. Now you are fugu her abdomen Muslim.

00:16:53 --> 00:17:04

There any Muslim who calls upon Allah during that hour of the night? Yes, Allah. Hi urine. Mean Emery dunya. I will ask you

00:17:06 --> 00:17:07

out or who Yeah.

00:17:08 --> 00:17:11

That no matter what he asks Allah for,

00:17:12 --> 00:17:18

whether it be that related to the dunya or that which is related to the Astra except that Allah will give it to him.

00:17:20 --> 00:17:25

If he calls upon Allah, with a humble heart with a sincere heart,

00:17:27 --> 00:17:32

begging Allah subhanahu wa Tada humbling himself before Allah subhanahu wa Donna

00:17:35 --> 00:17:45

asking Allah subhanahu wa Tada for his needs, except the Allah subhanahu wa Tada will give it to him. Why is it that the night is a special time?

00:17:47 --> 00:17:52

That Allah subhanahu wa Tada answers our dua they're in. It's because

00:17:53 --> 00:17:54

it is the time

00:17:56 --> 00:17:57

when everyone else

00:17:58 --> 00:18:02

is enjoying their warm, comfortable beds.

00:18:05 --> 00:18:11

And you get up sacrificing that pleasure for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:18:13 --> 00:18:21

And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells us that Allah descends to the lower heavens in the last third of every night

00:18:23 --> 00:18:24

asking who is out there

00:18:26 --> 00:18:34

who is asking me for something so that I may give it to him who is out there asking me to forgive his sin so that I mean forgive him.

00:18:36 --> 00:18:41

The night is a special time to connect with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.

00:18:43 --> 00:18:51

And so let us take advantage of these nights for their they are more special than the other nights of the year. Finally.

00:18:55 --> 00:18:56

For those

00:18:57 --> 00:18:58

who are not able

00:19:01 --> 00:19:07

to get up during these nights for our women, for our sisters, who are prevented from praying

00:19:09 --> 00:19:11

during these nights

00:19:13 --> 00:19:17

than they should not abandon the core of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:19:19 --> 00:19:26

They should be sitting in their Musala remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala reciting the Quran

00:19:28 --> 00:19:29

and making dua

00:19:30 --> 00:19:32

for it is hope that if they do that,

00:19:33 --> 00:19:36

then they will attain the reward of later to cuddle.

00:19:37 --> 00:19:43

Also, for those who have a legitimate reason

00:19:45 --> 00:19:46

that prevents them

00:19:48 --> 00:19:51

from getting up during these nights

00:19:53 --> 00:19:59

and they pray salatu Lucia in Geneva along with Salat al Fajr in Jana

00:20:01 --> 00:20:06

then it is hope that they will also get the reward of praying the entire night.

00:20:08 --> 00:20:10

And this was the view held by many of the Salah

00:20:12 --> 00:20:20

for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that whoever praise Allah Tala, Aisha in Jana.

00:20:22 --> 00:20:23

It is as if

00:20:24 --> 00:20:26

he stood half of the night in Korea.

00:20:27 --> 00:20:30

And then whoever prays salatu refriger in Jamaica.

00:20:32 --> 00:20:32

It is as if

00:20:34 --> 00:20:36

he prayed pm the entire night.

00:20:38 --> 00:20:42

And so the blessings of Allah subhanahu wa taharah are vast and unlimited.

00:20:44 --> 00:20:49

Let us not deprive ourselves of these blessings, finally.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:05

Reviving these knights in the idea of Allah subhanahu wata Hydra

00:21:07 --> 00:21:09

is something that only comes once a year.

00:21:11 --> 00:21:13

And there are many of us.

00:21:15 --> 00:21:21

Every year we hear the same thing, the virtues of the last 10 nights of Ramadan.

00:21:23 --> 00:21:26

the virtues of Laylatul Qadr.

00:21:28 --> 00:21:28

We hear it.

00:21:32 --> 00:21:33

We hear it.

00:21:35 --> 00:21:37

And we don't do anything about it.

00:21:39 --> 00:21:42

We don't make the effort

00:21:43 --> 00:21:52

to spend these nights in the Ibadah of Allah subhanahu wa taharah. depriving ourselves of these blessings and of these virtues.

00:21:56 --> 00:21:57

Let us not forget

00:21:59 --> 00:22:02

that there were those who were with us only last year

00:22:04 --> 00:22:15

who were no different than us, who also deprived themselves of the virtues of these knights. And today, they're no longer with us.

00:22:19 --> 00:22:23

One of the ways that will help us

00:22:24 --> 00:22:26

to take advantage of these knights

00:22:27 --> 00:22:28

is by realizing

00:22:31 --> 00:22:34

by realizing that death is around the corner.

00:22:36 --> 00:22:44

And if it was them last year, then it could be us this year. This could be our last Ramadan

00:22:47 --> 00:22:55

what guarantee do you have to live until next year, let alone to live

00:22:56 --> 00:22:57

to live a single day.

00:23:00 --> 00:23:11

And so let us take advantage. It starts with the determination. It starts with that sincere and honest intention and determination.

00:23:14 --> 00:23:16

That yes, this year I'm going to do it

00:23:18 --> 00:23:21

and then proper planning

00:23:23 --> 00:23:26

and then removing any obstacles that come in our way

00:23:27 --> 00:23:28

and above all,

00:23:29 --> 00:23:34

putting your trust in Allah subhanho Medina and asking Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:36 --> 00:23:42

to make you from among those who Allah subhanho wa Taala has selected

00:23:43 --> 00:23:49

to be from among those who will be from among his sincere

00:23:50 --> 00:24:07

and develop servants during these nights we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from among them. We ask Allah subhanahu wa taharah to forgive our shortcomings during this month of Ramadan and to help us to make up for whatever remains in these last nights.
