Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala to freedom be able to Mussolini or her mother or sort of lay Salah Heidi who I only was able to send him. This Lehmann cathedral cathedral from above the Wimbledon sisters.

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

We are reaching the last 10 nights of Ramadan Kareem. And

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

in those nights, among the odd nights,

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

wrestlers are seldom told us is likely to cover

00:00:36--> 00:00:56

one of your nights, he did not survive Salem specify a particular night you didn't say to the 21st to the 27th, or the 29th to the 25th. He said want to search for the data to cover in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. And out of them in the odd nights of the termite.

00:00:58--> 00:01:00

Given that we have one sighting

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

on different days, in different parts of the world, effectively it can be any of those 10 Nights. Because what is on odd night in one place, would be an even night in some other place.

00:01:16--> 00:01:17

The

00:01:20--> 00:01:29

key thing therefore is to maximize the benefit of those 10 nights and ensure that we spend all those 10 nights

00:01:30--> 00:01:40

if not the entire night, but then definitely a large part of the night in the worship of Allah subhanaw taala to deliver who in the Quran, Salah and throughout the Quran and so on and so forth. And

00:01:41--> 00:02:07

at least minimum, not spend it doing something which is either sinful or which is a wasteful thing, you know, watching this and that TV program, we're talking about all kinds of worldly things, politics and whatnot. That is the basic minimum at least don't ruin it, if you can't make something good out of it. And of course, we can and should make something good out of it. Because this is why I lost my job. I sent it to us.

00:02:09--> 00:02:20

I see the Hekmat of Allah subhanaw taala. We know the Hadees. Everybody knows this, that Rasulullah saw Salam hertz of argument happening in the masjid outside his house.

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

It was an argument between two of the Sahaba

00:02:28--> 00:02:30

different names that we mentioned, that's not important.

00:02:32--> 00:02:56

And with raised voices, and as soon as the restaurant came out, and he said, what's happening here? Why are you arguing? And then he said to them that Allah subhanaw taala had told me the exact night of letters of color. But because of this argument, he made me forget that, but search for it in the last 10 nights of Ramadan among those in the odd nights.

00:02:57--> 00:03:09

So first thing we have here is that then a really Salam was the only person who had been told the specific night, exact date.

00:03:11--> 00:03:14

And he was made to forget that. Right? So that's one thing.

00:03:16--> 00:03:24

Because of the argument, yes, so some one lesson can be taken to say that, you know, don't argue and Don't raise your voice in the masjid and so on. But that's not the point.

00:03:25--> 00:04:02

The point really is that Allah subhanaw taala in his wisdom, told his Nabhi the exact night and this is inshallah in order to honor the Navi that he should not be those who don't know, so he knew. But Allah in His Hickmott, also, in his wisdom made him forget that now you might say, well, what is the wisdom of forgetting? Now, I don't know, the wisdom of forgetting I don't speak on behalf of Allah. But I can tell you what I understand. And what I understand is that Allah subhanho wa Taala did that in order that the that the Muslims can benefit from all the nights.

00:04:03--> 00:04:31

So when you are searching for it, obviously every night and every day of Ramadan has enormous benefit, enormous value, and Allah does not want to deprive us of that. Now, obviously, supposing we knew that Laylat will cover because of a hadith of Rosa Salam because he said supposing he had said later to cover is on 21st Laila to cover is on 27 Let it recover is on 29th. If he had told us this specific date, that letter to cover is the night of such and such

00:04:33--> 00:05:00

day in Ramadan, then, obviously, we would spend that whole night in worship, and the rest of the time you'd sleep right we would do something else. Now Allah subhanaw taala wanted to bless us and wanted to reward us and wanted to give us more than what we deserve as always. So therefore, what he did Gela general who in his wisdom was he did not specify

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

Find the exact night he said it is among these 10 Nights search for it. So, this is a huge benefit for us that we do not know, a specific night number one, number two,

00:05:12--> 00:05:33

they asked us to sell them this idea also are there any signs of literal color? Now, he described some signs he said the morning after up, please understand, listen carefully, he said the morning after little further the sun will shine and the rays will not be harsh. Right.

00:05:34--> 00:06:02

So the sun will shine and it will be a very beautiful, gentle sunrise. Morning After which means what? Which means that on a given night, supposing I just slept through or I did something, you know, wasted my time. And then in the morning, I see the sunrise. Oh fantastic. So last night was there as well. So what am I going to do about that? What am I going to do about that? Because it's gone. Right? So the beauty of this sign also is that the sign

00:06:03--> 00:06:22

tells you what it was what it may have been, but it does it after that time is over, which means that if I really want to benefit from that night, I have to spend every night in worship of Allah subhanaw taala in a brother in vicar Shaka vicar.

00:06:23--> 00:06:53

And then the next morning I see the sun it's 100 Allah, I benefited from this I gain the benefit of this and I did not waste it. And this sunrise is inshallah evidence that I got Laila to color Inshallah, right. So this is a second very important point. So therefore, make sure that we don't waste our time in these dates. Third, important thing you might say, well, different people have

00:06:54--> 00:07:16

given different dates and people have said very quite authoritative Lee, that it must be the 27th. And a lot of people have talked about the 27th night that it should be the 27th and this and that and the other. And so and so said this was a very eminent names, right? I mean, I'm not I'm deliberately not taking all of His Names, may Allah be pleased with them, may Allah protect them,

00:07:17--> 00:07:18

and so on now.

00:07:21--> 00:07:37

My principle I'm sharing with you without any compulsion that you should follow it, follow it if you want, don't follow it if you don't want but I want to make sure that I state what I see as correct based on evidence, this is not my personal opinion. This is based on evidence.

00:07:38--> 00:07:54

In Islam, it is not permissible to specify a particular time a particular date a particular day, a particular week, month year, a particular form of doing worship,

00:07:55--> 00:08:01

unless there is clear evidence from Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam himself.

00:08:02--> 00:08:25

Why do we pray the way we pray because he said sunrise alum sir Luca Kabara. To Mooney Musa Easter pray as you have seen me pray, we pray in this way, we do not pray in any other way, even though there may be other ways which seem nice to us, but that will not be salah, it will not constitute salah, because that is not how Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam prayed.

00:08:26--> 00:09:07

Right? And so on. So we are very clear with regard to this day for example, when does a month start? When does a month and our usual Moon sighting controversies and moods are the arguments and all the thing about well, why can't we? You know, we are now in the modern times by country go by scientific calculations. Why can't we do this? Why can't we do that? We don't need to employ in modern times for scientific calculations. The Hindus have had a lunar calendar for 1000s of years. And it's a very accurate lunar lunar calendar. There's nothing wrong with the lunar lunar calendar. It can be used very easily without any problem. You don't need any calculation of the calculations have

00:09:07--> 00:09:08

already been done.

00:09:09--> 00:09:53

Why don't we use that? Because of the baraka because of the blessing of doing it the way Rasul Allah is Allah Sallam told us to do it. We are focusing not on the day, not on the moon, we are focusing on the beautiful words of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the baraka of following his ways. And what did he say? He said, see the moon and start fasting, see the moon and stop fasting. Now, obviously, it is our belief about him SallAllahu Sallam that he also knew Allah subhanaw taala had given him the Knowledge all about the new moon and how small it is and where on the horizon it is, and where it is visible and where it might not be visible, or what happens is there is cloud and

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

he knew all of that. And as I said, the Hindu calendar predates all this by saying

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

Judy's not by not by year by centuries, and it was well known, even in the Arab lands of the seventh century, when Roswell was also known was was on this earth alive, when he was walking on the earth, it was well known because there were trade trade relations between Arabia and India and all of this was not there was nothing and in any case Allah subhanaw taala would have told you, he there is a there is a reason these are this is from from the right, there is a reason why rasuna Saracen said this, we respect that. So, even though there is all kinds of calculations, which are let us wait for the citing, and we are not saying every single individual has to cite obviously, we know that we

00:10:41--> 00:11:17

know that we know the doctrine of that, as long as it decided in a in a given timezone or in a given country in America, like three times was when we entered a scene in California, we accept it, we accept that citing all over the United States and so on. And then similarly other countries have as long as decided now, is it possible that the moon is sited on the second of the month, meaning technically speaking, by the calculations, that what you see as the first or the of the month was is actually the second? Yes, it is possible? So what because this is what the Rasul Ali Salam said, we are following what he said.

00:11:18--> 00:12:04

We don't have to go deep into that as a no, no, no, but you see, it was actually the second so this is so therefore now it is really the day of it today. And I'm, you know, I'm fasting or vice versa, it is a day of fasting, and I'm feasting, none of that. As long as you are following the siting of the moon, then you are following the Sunnah for solar cells. Now, why did I leave that with this because the Sol Sol Salam, when you're talking about Editora, that he did not, he did not listen very carefully, he did not specify a particular date. What anybody else said after him is a statement that is as ascribe to that individual and that individual is not the Rasul of Allah, that

00:12:04--> 00:12:41

individual was not receiving that individual also given the names and the eminence of those people, they did not say, ignore what Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said, Follow what I said. Right? If you think somebody said that, for me the statement they merely said that I think it is on this day. And may Allah save us from saying, even saying things like this because I frankly between you and me, I don't think there is any need for anyone to say that. But people have said these things people have said for example, they have given explanations about the Hurrah for mocha to art in the Quran, which was very clearly said these are all for mocha that only Allah knows the meaning. But there are many

00:12:41--> 00:12:47

people including some of us here who have said Alif Lam, Meem this and Alif Lam. Meem means this and

00:12:48--> 00:13:38

Kapha and swag means this and so on as well. The point is, in Islam, is the safety lies in being within the boundaries well within the boundaries. What Allah subhanaw taala did not tell us we don't need to know what Rasul Allah is, or a salon did not specify, we don't need to know to extend your tongues that has camera on things, which we have no right to is a pathway leading to the anger of Allah subhanaw taala let us not follow that. Even the people who said that recovery is on on 27th. And as I said very clearly, they did not say it is definitely on this day, ignore everything else, including the habeas corpus or Salem, forget that Harvey's follow me, they never said any of that.

00:13:39--> 00:13:54

They made a conjecture, as I said, between you and me, even that conjecture was it would have been better for us and for them if they had not made that conjecture. It was unnecessary conjecture. Anyway, they did that. And as I said, if it was good, may Allah

00:13:55--> 00:14:31

bless them and reward them if it was bad, may Allah forgive them. But we have no compulsion whatsoever to follow anybody other than the Rasul of Allah salAllahu alayhi salam, and he did not specify final evidence. There are the famous hadith of ISIS Golan. She's She asked him and listen to that, who is asking whom? This is Ayesha Siddiqa, Radi Allahu Anhu. There is no Ireland better than bigger than her. She is responsible for the Romans, he is responsible for 25% of the deal. Right? One of the greatest fuqaha

00:14:32--> 00:14:59

of all time, she's asking the results. If I find she didn't say as well, what do I should I make on 27th? No. She says if I find Leila, to cover, what should I ask Allah? And he said Asia, if you find that he didn't say why he was saying if you're Asia, I mean did some 27 It's not what you want. Why you saying if he didn't say that, he said if you find it, then ask Allah subhanaw taala and say

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

Hello my nigga forward to help build LIFO FIFO and allow my nigga for one to help burapha 510 Allah you are the Forgiver you love to forgive so forgive me

00:15:13--> 00:15:58

now something about which sola SallAllahu Sallam himself did not give a specific date, my submission my brothers, sisters, do not get into these arguments. Don't get into all of this stuff. I don't care who said what, whoever said it is not the Rasul of Allah. And as far as I'm concerned, in matters of Deen in matters or other, our Aqeedah our creed, our belief is that we do not follow anyone other than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam that's it, period. If somebody else tells me something and says this is the hadith of Islam, and it says it's a authentic Hadees I follow. I'm not following the person who told me I'm following the one who said it who's

00:15:58--> 00:16:05

Mohamed Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa he was I was, I thought this is important for us because we're coming into

00:16:06--> 00:16:09

that time, when we will inshallah

00:16:11--> 00:16:49

be in the in the nights, one of which is that recover? Please don't get involved in arguments. If somebody is having a celebration saying tonight is later to recover. And tonight we are celebrating later to recover, stay away from that celebration, because that's an aberration is be that that celebration has no religious authority, that celebration should not be participated in because there is a person whoever is saying that is speaking about Allah without authority which is the biggest of sins, to speak about Allah without authority and with race it is we this is speaking about Allah because Allah belongs to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:50--> 00:17:12

So as long as that is not happening, you stay with yourself. You do your arriba you will make rasool Allah Mexico makes the farming Toba make lots and lots and lots of DUA and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept his dua for you and me. And we ask Allah Allah my Naga forward to hip Bella fufa funny, or Salalah will carry Malala he was a member of the gang All right
