Oh praise and glory to Allah we thank him and we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure and his forgiveness. And we seek perfection with Allah Neva whispers within us and the evil consequences of our actions. For whomever Allah guides. This is a great gift that no one can take away. No one can misguide that person ever. Nor can this entire world and everyone on it misguided such a person and will never on love rights misguidance for imperfect, various imperfect justice, the entire planet combined cannot offer guidance to this person. And we testify that no one is worthy of our worship and our devotion and our lives and our love and our obedience but Allah alone without any
partners, the true supreme key and that is Prophet Muhammad's Allah, Allah, Allah Allah says there was in truth in his prophet, and His messenger and the best of his creation, and the seal of his revelation to this world and the most beloved of the slaves of Allah to Allah. O people who are believed to have been tough of Allah fear God and keep your duty to God, as best as you possibly can, at all times, and in all places in the manner that he deserves.
And do not die except in a state of complete and total surrender to it to Allah state of Islam, where you surrender to God's laws by accepting them and trying your best to implement them.
And by surrendering to the standard, whatever it is by accepting it, and being patient with it, and trying to be content with it. And this will begin with after welcoming our brothers and sisters, to yet another July and we thank Allah for gathering us in his house. A blessing that no words can praise on long enough for
we continue with the hadith of Djibouti.
The mightiest Angel, then we send it to escort and to train and to protect and to advise, and to communicate with the mightiest messenger. Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam. When he said to me I have met Oh, H Murshida. For me, it's all Muhammad lived however long you want, but know that ultimately you will die.
why men cheat as a mecca methodical and love whomever you wish you know that you will ultimately be separated from them. Why are men machines and do whatever you wish for electronic zuv know for sure you will be reunited with it, you will be repaid with it.
And now the fourth statement, Jabri, Radek salaam then went on to say to the prophets, Allah Allah Wa Al Salam, WA, Musharraf and mean Kiana who believe
and know the surgeon that his father was that the honor the shut off the nobility, the shaft of the believer is in his standing at night meaning in his standing in prayer at night.
And so our appointment is with this sentence is standing at night is his honor the honor of every believer. First of all, he says that each advice is built on the advice right before it so know that you will die and know that you will be separated for women from those you love and know that you will be reunited with the deeds you've done.
And then building on that he mentions one of the greatest deeds and all of Islam, one of the most unique special acts of worship and all of Islam salah but not any salah, your Salah in the middle of the night.
And what's the relationship with this particular prayer? And the statements before is reminding of definitely details
are prophets of Allah Rodrigo says I've said to us that in The Hamlet toward MaryLu volume, I already have these graves are filled with darkness. Darkness but you can imagine
we can close our
eyes turn off our lights and see darkness. But it's not the same darkness because you know you can look at or that room, you know you can turn the lights on, you know you can open your eyes as your own decision and your own discretion, this is different.
And one of the greatest ways to alleviate this darkness of the grave is with solid itself a solid to lose Well that is a source of bias problems also that told us in many instances, and to is also vital and for and is vital. But here this hadith, he said and know that you're going to meet your deeds, and in the most honorable of your deeds you should be focusing on know that the honor of praying and light because praying at night is one of the most quality qualitative prayers, the prayers with the highest quality.
And so they will offer you biting your grave like few other deeds ever will.
This is the relation between data laid and between different degrees, then move on to say why was piatto lay culture?
Why doesn't it just known as implied like is implied? And that's goods connected with darkness degrees. But why is it culture wise? Can we leave a source of nobility
you will know when you're low in your graves. But it will begin here before you're lowering in your graves. You see this dunya there is shut off. There are many forms of honor in this world money is a source of honor handsome isn't used as a source of honor coming from a certain family can give you honor, these are real.
But in comparison, what is we are all writing the same airplane, some of us are honored to ride the first class, some of us are honored to be in the business class or the comfort class. Some of us are honored to be in the economy because we can afford to be on an airplane. We all have various degrees of honor riding this airplane or in this life, right? But at the end of the day, this flight means nothing
till you get off, and you realize who's gonna get pulled into a dark room forever. And who is that it's going to have their entourage waiting for them their honor employee to that in the destination not in the journey. And so this is true honor someone who honors themselves or is honored by Allah gets distinguished through having rapport with Allah, our relationship with Allah and nothing can quite create that the family because at the end of the night prayer, this is a very special very different kind of meeting between the slaves and his lawyer. That by the way, Allah honors people with Allah honors certain people, to the degree that he's pleased with them with what with the honor
the prestige of being able to connect with Allah privately and have these soft, special conversations with Allah in the dark.
That's how the early Muslims understood it correctly. By the way, you know, one of the early Muslims he complained to many of them it was reported from an asset inflate and others. I do everything I'm able to break down and leave. Hints I noticed the I go to sleep early. I put the water right next please. I don't need to go outside to get it from a faraway place. I can't get myself to break the night prayers. He says you're sitting by the time has held you down by nighttime. Allah allow you to get up. I can get up for anything. I don't see there's a burden to catch a flight. I don't see I just I have to do it. But this one I can't pull off no matter what I try. He says you've been
shackled by your disobedience. Allah hasn't chosen you
because of the lack of pleasure he has with you.
Even other types of Jennifer when he said I was deprived for him to have a lady with everything as left to center to Asheville. I was deprived held back from my family for six months because of a sin that I committed.
I wasn't allowed to prepare him late look at how he's feeling about it. I wasn't allowed.
I didn't qualify. And perhaps he said if this was also Sofia, it's because at one time I saw a man crying and I said He's showing off I said nobody is just acting like he's so sincere and moved by the eyes and the hottie by local Animus.
And even if the job for
the Khalifa when he went to one of the great scholars of his time here
and he found him crying. He said to him why he said I didn't pray if you haven't been last night. He said it's no big deal. Allah wanted you to rest and this is true because the province I'll send them send it to us when you intended to the elderly and you don't get up
This is your edgelit you got your award because you tried your best. And this dress was southern cotton Minho Alec a charity Allah gave you a freebie. Chatterjee from Allah Allah you so I want to get your as he says, no, no, no, not me. I don't get that stuff. I'm not worried to get those freebies I'm not sincere enough. He felt he was more resembling or deserving of the category that Allah spoke about in North Colorado. He said, well, that can Ketty Hala who the iPhone with a Baba. Allah hates him to see them go forward. So he kept them down, referring to the hypocrites that Allah this interest in them from going out of the province or send them in the Muslim army. And so they
saw it as a privilege. Allah chooses who comes out and who does it.
And you can see it from another angle as well.
Neither time as well. It's a time when people stop acting, stop performing. They resign. And they sign off.
From their daily tasks to the things they like to their pleasures, whether it's physical pleasure, like sleep, or intimacy, or its emotional pleasures, the things that give them a high, like fancy dinners or dating is done at night for that same reason. People even are more emotional at night, or watching movies or watching sports or whatever it is. So this is our human nature. Islam capitalizes on this nature of ours and says, This night where you're hiking spiritually, where you're hiking, emotionally where you seek pleasure and war, this is the perfect place for you to devote yourself to Allah because the believer really is who will love you.
The believer is someone that has more intense love for Allah than anything else.
So think about it, we give our lives a part of our lives to school, part of our lives to work part of our lives just to leisure that all of that is fine. But does it Allah Siljan deserves a part of our life to be dedicated to him.
And so when Allah allows someone to stand that light, this is a shot of the he's the only person that got it right. He's the only person that understood how best and how pleasurable this conversation is Allah subhanho that is going to be
and so then realizing this is a sharp it's an honor because very few people do and then acting on this is a shot off that Allah chose them for it's an honor, that they're not oblivious to this and what exists here. The chance to connect with Allah be given very special gifts by Allah have my Do I answer from Allah, that's all day. But Allah only honors a future realize and even fewer to act on that. The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam he said to us, men lb, Amina lady, we actually it looked up, you know, rafidhi, whomever gets up and right and brings in 10 is evil. In fact, he says, so in fact, Africa, is 10, I let whoever has the sense that I will feel the divine grace from Allah to do
that at night, rather than try to be in right after Asia or right before if it's momentary. Whoever can do this will not be written with Allah among the E plus,
you're not of those that are going to be heedless in your dunya on your way to your app.
As for those who don't, they will become heedless a person can say is that means how not to pray the elderly? Is it mandatory to pray the night prayers if there weren't so much? The answer is no, technically, it's not. Technically it's not mandatory. Okay. And it's not mandatory, and why should I feel so stressed about not doing? Why should I feel a burden on myself unnecessarily when it's not necessary?
And that's a that's a good question. Then you need to answer for yourself. Why should I do this to myself?
Some people, many people come to the Russia if or the either Imams or just, they just they suffer from having a dip in their email. They suffer from like a weakness in their faith and they can't fully understand why. Say I'm doing what's obligatory. Like I'm praying my five
are you really praying to five
you're not really praying your five.
Setting a wall on top of praying your five, you're committing other things as well. They're tearing you down. And so the other lane is for you your chance each night to wash away all this to snap out
All these see, yes, you are friend, you're five, it's true.
But you're five in the muscle of the day in the in the chaos in the rat race, as they call it, the grind of the day is not fully you're offering something, but you're not offering the five as they should be offered. And so they're not giving you all the tears you're supposed to be getting from them. And then you add on top of is the fact that you do so many things aside from negligence in the five
that just a pylon of disobedience. Throughout your day. You looked here and you said that and you did this and you didn't do that. That's why when they asked one of the wise men I don't even know if he was a scholar. He told listen, I just I can't get myself to break down with it. It's a burden. It's heavy on me. It's not the fight obligatory affairs that's it. He said Okay, listen, don't sin during the daytime and those briefly on Monday. It will be easy to break your five there's no minus or plus you're okay. But it's definitely the case. It certainly isn't.
I mean, if you notice the Sahaba Laurel biotic in Korea who laid was in essence obligatory longer.
Even if it was reduced, they still did not forget why it was made obligatory and the time in which it was made obligatory for their own sake. And if we would understand the lack of of PM, we will look at them completely different. So Allah azza wa jal at the onset of the snap, he says, Well, yeah, you want to serve you know, you was wrapped up a profit center was very traumatized by the experience and traumatized by the mission that he's about to embark on of prophethood. And the backlash is about to get to he comes out with this alleged Whoa, you who is wrapped up is trying to contain himself, call me late, get up and pray at night, the whole night in LA Palina, except for a
little bit. Net how much NESPA half of the night owl equals men who can either or take a little less than that less than half, like a third of the night.
Ever see the day or two more you have to do a little more meaning than half
what to do or Anatole Tila and pray and recite the whole ad in slow rhythmic toes slowly?
Why? In? Absolutely, it can Oh, wouldn't that mean Neila we are about to reveal to you a very heavy statement. very weighty very, this revelation and the mission is something very heavy. And there's nothing that's going to prepare you for that than doing this. Then reciting the Quran slowly. In that she adds a navy assured dual annual APU Keila then Allah says, because the the hours of the night are assured, doable. And
I said to work on means more effective, what means for things overlap. So it's more effective and there being concurrence reinforcement of what of what you're seeing and what you're believing.
Because even if you pray or five during the day, when you say some kind of a bit, I mean, when you say some kind of good.
There's usually not much concurrence in most most of us between what we're seeing and how we're feeling. And that's why we weren't up in the day saying Why did this happen to me? Why did that happen to me? What am I going to do about this, but you're repeating throughout your date so I've had I've been I've been Glorified is Allah, perfect, perfect in every way he's in full, that does not encourage them. And so he's telling you when the lights go out, and people start moving, and the noises come down, and there's a chance to do whatever one either and it's more upright for these words. These words that you're seeing, they become more meaningful, more meaningful to you.
In retrofitting the hell he said the house believer, he says, Because you have used the date time, in more preoccupation. You know, seven heads either had an error because what swimming seven heads like as if we're drowning in your data for so many hours. If you don't have the proper credit downside of using a data lake, you're going to drown, you're going to become useless. This is the meaning of the promise I'll tell you 10 is evil. But in PMMA, removed in a completely different atmosphere will do so much for you.
And if you
don't know he says, so have all understood this to the point that there is not a single Sahabi imagine a whole generation like this, maybe we want to evaluate the state of humanity. One is held coming from above and
he says there is no so heavy except that he had a certain portion of the night someone had bless someone at the door that's expected that's known we have different lives, different commitments.
So there was a certain portion of the night in every so heavy schedule, every single one of them and if you think that the the AMA is shuffle movement in honor of the believer what happens when all of a generation are doing it? You find the most honorable generation to go to to the point that above all right. And this is particularly interesting because it's lagging behind every man says to buy to buy you have to do or you have to ever worry about Sargon forget who Allah to Mahajan who you are attacking who the lay that has left and you suddenly have you ever.
He says, I spent seven days every man in the house level what I do my wife and I found him and his wife and his servant. They used to
split the night into thirds, and exchange shifts, one would pray and then he went with the next person up. Above all right on himself on the alarm. He says, I promise the prophets of the law body he will send to them to never go to sleep before I prayed my way to the end of my life prayers.
And it is very interesting because the Sahara all of you that the Prophet SAW Selim said the best way to create pm would be ideally is to sleep is to pray in a Democrat instead of the Keller unanimous well elite former Abu Musa who
he used to sleep for half the night, and then pray for a third and then sleep for the last six of the night. A little bit, but he would pray the beginning of the night wise. They said he would pray this way early on and previous wimps early on, out of fear that he would not get up.
Meaning if you're not going to do it in the most ideal fashion, if you're not going to get it all those Miss outlines all that should not be an option for us. Even if you cannot get on each lines. And we can all pray with you. You can set your Friday night, you can set your Saturday night to start with a&b a portfolio that was shuffled on
our site or set them on every level we have our children that
said he could
do whatever you want also.
Instead, I'd be the
one who says also that we heard the prophets of Allah or Allah he will send them say,
Allah will let you land on them in an ad for southern law. So my brother and I've been fighting ever to Number Have you actually had map or a mobile phone? Verizon phone has been an ad for solid and so my other Zelda fan ever number spy cheating that may or must mercy be upon a man who gets up in praise for a smoke for a portion of the night and then wakes up his wife. And if she refuses, he sprinkled some water in her face. And may Allah have mercy upon a woman that gets up in the trees at night then leaks off her husband and if he refuses, she sprinkles some water in his face.
Can you imagine two people that have agreed obviously this is going to happen beforehand to agree that he wants a phrase getting laid and if I don't get up, wake me up, sprinkle some water do something. Massage me do something. Can you imagine a husband and a wife agreeing on goals like this together? And not getting that derived from the Prophet SAW said, rationing of Allah's Mercy descending upon him and his wife and his family?
Can you imagine there being marital problems for petty reasons after this happens? Can you imagine there being children's problems from someone who behaves like an override on the other one based on his family, little by little?
You know, many times and I've said this to you before, some of the Greek every teacher say whenever I asked a student that completed Have your parents spread the enemy late, I always find it true.
That's the secret. That's the pattern I've always found. You know, many times we raise our kids so well. But there are certain things that are blocked we're blind to we can see some of our kids are so intelligent. Some of the parents are just so busy, that the kid can live double lives and you can see all the way to the end you thought to raise them so well. But someone increase the elderly and it's to staff with themselves and with their family. They will not suffer this 99% of the time if not even more they will not suffer these things. When the family is together like this on that. Last I only have two minutes left.
sharing with you a personal story
about three years ago could have been for when I used to visit
Your City. Now our city here in Allentown.
There was a brother who attended our spring conference was not Muslim and we took him out to be in another speaker, our good brother, I'm not sure.
And we sat in the Donald's Long story short, it was a live event tonight. And he said useless. It's been five times a day.
And so I'm what kind of jumped in and he gave him an excellent
perspective that I want to share with you about family. He said to me, bro, we don't pray five times a day, we pray more than that. We only have to pray five. Once you start praying, you'll realize that this that you're looking at it from the outside is a very deep from the inside. It's a privilege.
And so I can tell you here now, Allah azza wa jal has promised that he comes down in the last third of the night, every single night. There is no glimmer of doubt there is no shade of doubt regarding the authenticity of this. And then our Prophet SAW Selim said this. And he says hadn't been set in for Leon is there anyone asked me so I may give them is Henry Mustafi. And for others, you know that anyone seeking forgiveness, I'll forgive them. Just asked me right here right now. I can tell you all of these things, but at the end of the day, I'm asking you something else. What are you going to do after the hotspot? be gradual, but make the promise be right now. The I'm going to start playing
family, even in the tiniest fraction of my week, I'll do it. I'm going to start with Inaka neck and kills them. I'll do it before I sleep not an ideal for me in the middle of the night. What are you going to do now?
All of that is right in front of you. All of that is at your disposal. And remember that you need a slot to be said after slaving and degraded he connected it with this you standing in the dark will fill your green compliant. You standing firm in the end and being consistent will make you firm on that path crossing the Hellfire for you and your families. So make the determination now making the decision right now Wallah. You may find that that one night made the difference. Once you actually start in one night made all the difference. When we got to the other side of the bridge. When we got to the AFA and survival was at stake levels for eternity were being distributed. They are loving us
and you have those who enjoy His company at night more than we enjoy the company of people during the day. May Allah is diligent help us stand in front of them with dignity and be among those that are entitled to standing in front of him to enjoy the family. May Allah azza wa jal forgive us for the sins that keep us down. And may Allah doesn't make us interested enough to want to engage with him and it takes conversation with him every single night before we leave this dunya Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. filetto Hana Allahu La Fila our Hyundai of LA for that our Hana
