Oh praise and glory get to a lovely thank him and we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure and his forgiveness. And we seek perfection with our love and evil 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, none 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 in perfect fairness in perfect 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 to Allah alone
without any partners, the true Sabrina kina that is profitable comments on the love that was in truth, this 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 Love, love, love, love. Old people who are believed to have been tough for the love of 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 a law state of Islam, where you surrender to His laws by accepting them and trying your best to implement them.
And by surrendering to whatever investments 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 Joomla and we thank Allah for gathering us in his house. A blessing that No words can praise on long enough for
we continue with that even to be
the mightiest angel that was sent 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 him Yeah, Mohammed, Mohammed.
Mohammed lived however long you want, but know that ultimately you will die.
Why did men cheat
and love whomever you wish to know that you will ultimately be separated from them? Why are men men cheat and do whatever you wish for a better image of God he knows for sure you will be reunited with it, you will be repaid with it.
And now the fourth statement Jabri, Daddy celeb went on to say to the profits of a lot of money to set it up.
To be late.
And know the surgeon only
knows that the other the shop the nobility, the shop of the believer is in his standing at night meaning of his standing in prayer at night.
And so our home 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 So know that you will die and know that you will be separated 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 this lamb, one of the most unique special acts of worship and all of this lamb sila, but not any further. You saw that in the middle of the night.
And what's the relationship with this particular prayer? And the statements before is reminding of definite details
are the prophets of Allah said to us that in the handle to boo, boo, boom
these graves are filled with darkness. Darkness like you can't imagine.
We can close our eyes.
I turn off our lights and see darkness. But it's not the same darkness because you know, you can look at it that through, 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 grief is with solid itself, a solid to lose. But that is a source of
many instances. And to add is also vital info and is vital. But here it is heavy saying and know that you're going to meet your needs. And in the most honorable of Europeans, you should be focusing on no the honor of praying at night, because praying at night is one of the most quality, qualitative prayers, the prayers with the highest quality.
And so they will offer you a bite in your grave when few other deeds ever win.
This is the relationship between the domain and between that and the grief, then move on to say, why was a cold shock?
Why wasn't it just normal is implied life is implied. And that's good connected with darkness degrees. But why is it called schuff? Why is gamma lead a source of nobility.
You will know when you're lower than your graves, but it will begin here before your lower end in your graves. You see this dunya very sharp there are many forms of honor in this world money is a source of honor. Hence admissibility is a source of honor coming from a certain family can give you honor, these are real there. But in comparison, what is we are all riding 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 an economy because we can afford to be on an airplane. We all have various degrees of honor riding this airplane in this fight, 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 is going to have their entourage waiting for them. They're honored employees with that in the destination, not in the journey. And so this is true honor someone who honors themselves or is honored by Allah gets distinguish through having rapport with Allah, our relationship with Allah and nothing can quite create that family. Because at the end of the night prayer, this is a very special, very different kind of meeting between the slaves and is lowered. That By the way, a lot of honors people with a love honors certain people, to the degree that is pleased with them, with what
with the honor the prestige of being able to connect with Ahmed privately and have these soft, special conversations with Allah in the dark.
That's how the early Muslims on the students directly by the way, you know, one of the early Muslims who complained to many of them reported from a delay than others. I do everything I'm not able to break down the day.
I go to sleep early. I put the water right next to me so I don't need to go and try 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. A moment allow you to get up. I think it's a Friday. I don't see this a burden to catch a flight. I don't see it. I just I have to do it. But this one I can't pull off no matter what I tried. He said you've been shackled by the disobedience of law hasn't chosen you
because of the lack of pleasure he has with you.
Even a little bit of Trump's agenda. So he said I was deprived for him to the other lady who has left to sit at 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 Have a look at how we speaking about it. I wasn't allowed.
I didn't qualify. And perhaps he said if this was also severe, it's because at one time I saw a man crying and I said he's showing off I said nobody. He's just acting like he's so sincere and moved by the idea.
And even though the Joshua
the halifa when he went to one of the great scholars of his time here
and found him crying he said to him Why is that I didn't pray every day last night. He said it's no big deal.
And this is true because the problems often send it to us when you intended to the elderly and you don't get up
This is your edge in it you got your award, because you tried your best. And this dress was Southern. Meanwhile, a charity gave you a freebie a charity from a law you so until
he said 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 I last spoke about in North Korea and what he said, What happened, Kenny, how loving the iPhones with a Baba, Allah hates it to see them go forward. So he kept them down, referring to the haters that are this interested them from going out to the prophet SAW.
And so they saw it as a privilege or love chooses who comes out and who doesn't. And you can see it from another angle as well.
Night at time is one, 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 emotional pleasures, the things that give them a high, like fancy dinners or dating is not a grant 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. A slam capitalism 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 known as more intense love for a love anything else.
And 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 doesn't a lot of siljan deserve a part of our life to be dedicated to him.
And so when Allah allows someone to stand that light, this is a shot off that he's the only person that got it right. He's the only person that is good, how best I had pleasurable this conversation with Allah subhanho data 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 that I 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 has my direct answers from Allah, that's all good. But alone, the honors a few to realize and even fewer to act on that. The Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam he said to us men called Amina lady, we actually seen them, you know, Rafi, whomever it
is even. In fact it is. So it
is tender that whomever has the sense that Sofia divided grace from Allah to do that at night, by the way, I tried to be right after Asia or right before French momentary, whoever can do this will not be written with Allah among the heatless
you're not of those that are gonna be heap lists in your on your way to your app.
As for those who don't, they will become heedless. A person can say does that mean it's hard not to break the underlaid? Is it mandatory to bring the ninth graders if there weren't so much? The answer is no, technically, it's not. Technically it's not mandatory. Okay. 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 good question that you need to answer for yourself. Why should I do this to myself?
Some people many people come to the machine or the either Emacs or just they just they suffer from having a dip in their in their 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 you're
setting a wall on top of your five. you're committing other things as well that are tearing you down. And so the other lane is for you Your chance each night to wash away all this to snap out
This CES, your friend your fight, it's true.
But your fight 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 fight as they should be offered. And so they're not giving you all the answers you're supposed to be getting from them. And then you add on top of this, the fact that you do so many things, aside from negligence in the five
that just a pylon of disobedience throughout your day, you look 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 or not. He told Listen, I just I can't get myself to break down women's burdens every day. It's not the fight obligatory phrase. That's it. He said, Okay, listen, don't say during the daytime, and don't break down and
it will be easier to break your five there's no minus or plus your own key. But it's definitely the case. It certainly isn't.
I mean, if you don't have a warm body, it can be overlaid was in essence obligatory on them.
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 RPM, we would look at them completely different. So a large soldier at the onset of his status as well. Yeah, you know, you was wrapped up a province. Our Senate 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 when he comes out with this, unless you who is wrapped up in trying to contain himself, only get up and pray at night, the whole night, in a funny way except for the two minutes. Myth how much missed half of
the night, I want you to submit who can either or take a little less than that less than half by the third or the night.
More you have to do a little more meaning than half
what Allah told Tila and pray and recite the whole l in slow rhythmic toes slowly.
Why in that Saluki
we are about to reveal to you a very heavy statement, very weighty version, this revelation and the mission is something very heavy. And there is nothing other
than doing this. Then reciting the whole and slowly in that as she had said, Maybe I should do
that. Because the wee hours of the night or a shed do whatever. And
I started to work on means more effective, what it means for things to overlap. So it's more effective and there being concurrence reinforcement of what of what you're saying and what you're believing.
Because even if you credit a fire during the day, when you say some kind of weird army, would you say some kind of Vietnam?
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 they weren't. 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 day, had albeit are being Glorified is a love.
perfect in every way. He's in full, that digital concurrent spin. And so we tell you, when the lights go out, and people stop moving, and the noises come down, and then there's a shutdown.
And it's more upright for these words. These words that you're seeing, they become more meaningful, more meaningful to you.
In, in the hands of the believer, he says because you have the deep time, a long preoccupation, you don't see that Arabic is what swimming seven heads like as if we're drowning in your day for so many hours. If you don't have the proper kind of downtime,
you're gonna drown you're going to become useless, this is the meaning of the
season, but in pmma mode in a completely different atmosphere will do so much.
And if you
have understood this to the point that there is not a single so how do you imagine a whole generation like this? We want to evaluate the state of humanity one is held coming from above and
he says there is no so happy except that he had a certain portion of the night someone had bless some another boy that's expected that's no 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 AMA is shut off from movement in honor of the believer, what happens when all of a generation are doing it, you find the most honorable generation go to, to the point that
this is particularly interesting because
if Do you have to ever
forget to do
less, and you certainly have that.
He says, I spent seven days at Horace Mann in the house level oil.
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 would wake the next person up above himself.
I promise the profits of the law he will send to them to never go to sleep before I prayed my way to the end of my wife's prayers.
And it is very interesting because the Sahaba all knew that the prophet SAW Selim said, the best way to prepare with a ideality is to sleep is to pray democrat instead of the inadmissible lady.
He used to sleep for half the night, and then pray for a third, and then sleep for the last six of the night.
But he would pray at the beginning of the night, while they said he would pray this way early on and pray these wins 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 into all those without article that should not be an option for us. Even if you cannot get the minimum each night. And we can all pray with you. You can set your Friday night, you can set your Saturday night job to start with a young baby.
Or whatever you also
said also that we heard the prophets of love or it will send them see
them on them in an ad for finding that through my reading habits number Have you actually had map
farmers with an ad for solid
Zelda threaten ever no more cheating that may have been mercy upon a man who gets up and prays for a small portion of the night, and then wakes up his wife. And if she refuses, he sprinkled some water in her face, and they'll not have mercy upon a woman that gets up and prays at night they leech 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 to phrase gambling and if I don't get up with me on sprinkles on water use on massage we 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
about 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 every one
of these family little by little?
You know many times and I've said this to you before, some of the great teachers say whenever I asked a student that completed him, your parents break the Adelaide, 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 blind we're blind to we can see. So our kids are so intelligent. Some of the parents are just so busy, that the kid can live double lives and you catch you all the way to the end you thought to raise them so low, but someone that
wants to separate themselves and that their families are suffering 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 year, 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, our city here in Allentown.
There was a brother who attended our spring conference was not Muslim. And we took him out. We had another speaker, our brother.
And we sat in the Donald's long story short, it was 11th night. And he said, uses five times a day.
And so I kind of jumped in. And he gave him an excellent
perspective that I want to share with you about family. He says, bro, we don't pray five times a day, we pray more than that. We only have to pray Father, once you start breathing, you'll realize that this that you looking at it from the outside is a very dude, from the inside. It's a privilege.
And so I can tell you that you're now a law. So Jen 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 says this. And he says, having said info Leon, is there anyone asking so I may give them his
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 have to be gradual, but make the promise right now? I'm going to start playing clearly, even in the tiniest fraction of my week, I'll do it. I'm going to start with enough. 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?
He said, after explaining a big relief we connected with this you standing in the dark will fill your agreement. Why are you standing firm and being consistent will make you firm on that path crossing the Hellfire for you and your families. So bear with the determination now make the decision right now, a lot of you may find out 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 alpha and survival was at stake levels for eternity were being distributed. They are not like us and you have those who enjoy his company at night. More than we enjoy the company of people
during the day may help us stand in front of him with dignity and be able to those that are entitled to standing in front of him to ensure that they will be realized so they forgive us for the things that keep us down. And then on Mars does it make us interested enough to want to engage with him and takes conversation with him every single night before we leave this dunya along.
