Ramadan Amen and we're here to serve and fulfill Allah who matter called the moment.
Whoever prays the nights of the month of Ramadan, then he will get his sins all his past sins forgiven, all of them will be forgiven.
Sometimes, obviously people have work to do people have commitments, and it's hard to pray so much, oh, to pray the whole night. For example, just as the Prophet SAW Selim used to pray most of the night, the Companions as well, especially at the early stages of Islam, but Allah Subhana Allah made it easy. And in Ramadan, the Prophet SAW Allah sent them
because the Prophet SAW Selim pre telawi with the Companions three nights, then he did not come out to the masjid because he did not want it to become obligatory upon them.
So the messenger Salah Salem, during these days instructed them and he said muncom and Al Imam Hatao and Sarraf kuchibhotla Houthi, Yama, Lila.
Whoever prays with this Imam meaning the tarawih whoever prays with the Imam that Sahrawi in he will get he will get the reward of praying the whole nights
from a SHA two.
You see the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala
muncom Anna and Imani Yun Solace kuchibhotla Houthi Yamuna. Whoever prays with the Imam. Whoever prays with this Imam and taraweeh Salam said it in the occasion of tarawih
muncom Allah Allah Manhattan's sort of coachable and vocal I'm reluctant can however praise with his Imam until the Imam finishes with prayer. This applies to 1234. Imams, like you pay him to hold on to Imams every day, you finish with the two Imams until the Imam leaves leaves the prayer area that he finishes declare, even if he prays to God.
And that's it. It will be written for you during word of praying the whole nights. That's the gift from Allah subhanaw taala. So even sometimes, you might think the prayers a bit long, it's a bit difficult, but that's the only month that we pray thoroughly. So we have and this time actually for you to push yourself beyond your comfort zone. So if Allah subhanaw taala made it easy as well for us and here I wanted to share with you something from the Sunnah, that it is not an obligation.
It's something that you do voluntary in order to seek reward from Allah subhanaw taala. And I'm saying this for our uncles, and although uncle's Ma sha Allah sometimes are more fit than the younger generation than us. But if you have some kind of illness or if you are tired,
with the taraweeh prayer, you can sit down
even if you don't need to, even if you don't need to any voluntary call, if you would like to pray it sitting you can pray sitting from the beginning, you can still do that. But you will get half of the new world this is where the Prophet sallallahu sallam said you will
miss for time.
The one who prays sitting will get half of the reward of the person who prays standing that's no bigotry prayer now with the five daily prayers, only voluntary prayers so in total we if you feel a bit tired, if you see the Imam has recited for long or you feel it's been long enough, okay, and you predict that in the next couple of hours you will be tired and it would be too much for you relax, grab a chair and sit on the floor as well. You can still do that. The prophets also when he prayed at night, I shall Allah be pleased with her said sometimes he would pray the whole night standing. Other nights he would pray the whole night sitting that's what the night prayer so we can still do
that. But I would recommend to get more reward if you are fit and you can handle it. Stay standard so don't make it a habit sometimes people do out of just being different or trying to do something different try something different. Don't wait let it become a habit. But generally when you feel that you will need it. You feel the need to relax you can play the first talk I standing the second car sitting down no problem. It's inshallah flexible. So these are some of the things about the total we handle forget that the nights of Ramadan are the most precious and the prophets Allah has said about Ramadan where they could only Muslim in will equal remote meaning that water Mr. Jana,
for every believer, there is a DUA and Ramadan that will be granted.
And don't forget, the Prophet SAW Selim says about Ramadan. When he learned he Otakar off he couldn't be Laila. In every night of Ramadan, there are people that Allah will protect for good from the hellfire. So there will be written as the people who will never go to the hellfire.
So the more sincere you are, the more dedication you have, the more mindful you are of Allah subhanaw taala and the more you put your heart into prayer
And you make dua and sha Allah hopefully, at least we get one of these nights we will be from those from Allah will free for forever from the Hellfire that's at every night and the month of Ramadan
is the split that let domestic comes at the beginning or forgiveness in the at the end and in the middle. The whole of Ramadan is Mathura Krushna exponent now the whole month, the first term the second term and the third term, all of the nights all of the days of Ramadan. They are mercy full of mercy, forgiveness and free from the hellfire. This is what the month of Ramadan is. So push yourself a bit you know probably the the length of defer and put up with the temptation to make the pressure because you are standing before Allah subhanaw taala can be bored of it. Don't be bored of it. Try to contemplate with the recitation. Think about Allah subhanaw taala leave the whole world
behind. Mostly people when they don't they want to finish the prayer quickly. They have something keeping them busy in their mind. There must be something keeping them busy, overtired. physically tired, sit down, no problem.
If your mind is busy, you will not focus in the prayer and you will not get the benefit of it. And these are the times where the angels are meant in sha Allah to be among the believers. That's the time we mentioned Allah subhanaw taala recite the words of Allah subhanaw taala Amana Bong is the term for the angels when they spread on Earth. So feel the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala it will help you it will help you to strengthen your faith and inshallah let's get the sha Allah the make our best make the best advantage in sha Allah from Ramadan this year what is that from La Salle?
