Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Mr. Mallya, Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who are early he was Sadie Hillman Wanda Allahumma Illumina and founder when Florida everywhere I lived in I was in Ireland and Subhanak Allahumma. The argument in Ireland in early Mahaki was that
respected brothers sisters, Salam aleikum, wa Rahmatullah heeta and overcut.
that everybody is doing well in sha Allah in this blessing night.
And in this blessed month of Ramadan, Mubarak, we only have a few nights left.
I would like to thank all of you for taking out your
time tonight Hamdulillah.
It's quite late here in the UK, past midnight and wherever you are in whichever part of the world you are, whatever time it is where you are,
as we spend the last few nights of Ramadan, and the last 10 nights and today's the 27th night
and we look at the insights and reflections on these last 10 nights and specifically tonight and I want to talk briefly about strengthening our relationship with Allah subhanaw taala would like to also thank our beloved Academy for arranging arranging these webinars series
and inviting various speakers
to talk about different aspects relating to the month of Ramadan and the last 10 Nights etc. May Allah subhanaw taala accept efforts bless everybody inshallah.
I won't take too much of your all my time.
Tonight is 27th night of Ramadan in Mobarak
which could be Leila through butter.
One of the things about later is this, that it is not possible
to say with surety which night is Laila to other
there are multiple opinions on which nucleated the other might be.
And there are Hadith said the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said seek it, search for it seek it ill Demi Suha
seek it on the 21st night on the 23rd nights and durations talk about 25th night 27th Night. So there are multiple opinions of scholars looking at various Hadith.
But most possible, it is most likely based on the majority opinion is that this night is most likely to occur Leila to cuddle and I will explain why it's called cuddle and what it means by little cuddle.
Most likely this particular blessing night it's a little Mobarak as well blessing night in the Quran Allah refers it to also sort of de Haan equals it Leila to Mobarak
in Anza, now Vinay Letty Mobarak. So it's a blessed night full of Baraka, full of blessings, full of Allah's mercy. So, this particular night, most likely it occurs. Number one in Ramadan, and Mubarak number two, most likely in the last last 10 nights.
And from the last 10 Nights, most likely the other nights. And that's why the narration is of the 21st 23rd 25th 27th and 20 nights. And I think all five according to the many opinions of the scholars all five equally possible. Some have then, additionally said also that 27 is more likely from these as well from 2123 2527 and 29. Some have said that 27th is most more likely, but majorities I think hold all of these odd nights of the last 10 nights as equally
you know the likelihood nights in which Laylat recorded might take place. And also the issue is that it's not like every Ramadan on the same night. It isn't Ramadan.
And it could be anytime in Ramadan, it could be any night and number one, it could move around. So this year it could be 27. Next year, it could be 29. The following year, it could be 21. The year after it could be fifth of Ramadan.
It moves around and we've been commanded to search for it search words meaning not spend and waste time in searching and looking at the clouds and the skies and there's another time for looking at the clouds and the skies and you know marveling at the creation of Allah
I'm looking trying to look for some rays of sun etc, etc. And it's it's a bit late today and this little other unethical, it's not that this is not the meaning of search for it searching for it seeking it means that we
make the most out of the night and do as much as possible in order to build our relationship in order to build our connection with our Creator Allah Spanner data. Now, you see, we have to understand the bigger picture here, brothers and sisters, there's a bigger picture here, which we really need to understand. And the bigger picture is that why has this knight being
created or designated by Allah? subhanaw taala? Number one, and then number two, why does it move around?
And why don't we know for certainty and for surety when it is and why have we been told to seek it? All of these three, four questions, they all kind of relate. It's like I'll answer all of this in one one in one answer because they're all connected. Why did Allah create this night and design it and designated it and you know, highlight in this particular night, sort of the other not? Allah didn't just just highlight it in simple terms that Allah revealed a whole Surah a hellhole surah in the book of Allah Surah pada. Regarding this night, there is no other time regarding which Allah has revealed a whole solar. There's no whole sort of sort of Ramadan, there's no sort of aid there is
not there are many multiple we have these, you know blessing occasions and times and nights and days.
The Hajj time, the first 10 days of Ashura, the ninth 10th of Muharram fasting, and then we have Siobhan is a very pleasant month. The whole month, mentioned in Hadith that the messenger Salallahu Alaihe. Salam used to last quite a lot in Shabbat,
Ramadan as a month, but there is no particular time regarding which Allah has revealed the whole sunnah. There is another Surah after a particular time, which is similar to Joomla. There is a whole slew of our Joomla named sort of Joomla are built. The difference is that the whole Surah doesn't talk about Joomla rather, there's many other topics in the beginning and then it leads into just the last two three verses Allah talks about Jamar this surah in who Ville a little harder on the rocker man a little harder Laila to address hieromonk l Fisher Zaloni Ito to work rho v herb is near OB him in kuleana. Salam on here, hat monopolar il Fajr whole Surah dedicated
to this night,
this other night.
I like to call it this little cutter. But I will explain why. You know, we say the powered night powder. That's not the only meaning of a little cutter. And therefore I personally there's nothing wrong thing, knife power because that is one of the meanings. But there's about three, I'll just mention them as well, just briefly, but there's about three meanings but to answer that question to finish off that point. That why has Allah designated this knife given it so much importance to it? And then he's told us to see kids in the Hadith, the messenger SallAllahu Ayushmann tells us, it'll tell me Suha it'll tell me Suhasini kit, and then we have not been told about it. There's one
narration where the knowledge was uplifted because of a reason. There were two people fighting and arguing. But that was just made as a reason Allah wanted this not to be for us to know specifically, we've been told to search it. We don't know about it exactly when it is for surety. Definitely. But we've been given signs and indications and certain duration is given. So it's not kept as abstract. And as you know, like just not tell us at all. Like there's one night in the year. Seek it wasn't like that. Ramadan, last 10 nights, the odd nights. So giving us like, you know, just giving us that cake, but they're not giving it to it's like it's like the child in your hand. No, it's like you're
you're so close yet so far.
So close yet so far. This is the this is the whole you know, the way Allah has approached made a little harder for us.
Seek it, look for it, search for it. It might be there. It might be that it's probably here. It's probably they'll give you some clues. Give you some hints. Okay, look for it. Okay, anyway, in this room. Okay, maybe it's in that corner in those few boxes.
Making it easy for us but not telling us exactly.
Now the whole
concept behind this is really, we have to understand that this Deen of ours that Allah has given us Allah wants us to connect to him and really feel
focus really on the aka this is just this I'm responding to these questions now with this, that this world is not really the real life. It's not the real abode. It's a temporary about we're just here just for a short period of time. The real focus of the believer the real focus should be darker and this is what Allah said, oh mahalo oxygen. Now we'll insert hilarya Abu, I've only created you for you for a test and for to worship me and let's say you come you prepare for the next life and you go, don't dwell on this life too much. Now.
That's the real purpose, but as opposed to some other faith communities like Catholicism, in which they
believe in robinia. Rania means monetarism, like they completely detach themselves too from the world. So they don't marry they don't have children. They think marriage marrying itself is wrong. You don't enjoy the world you don't and you don't buy you don't sell. You just divorce the dunya completely. You just go in a desert somewhere and you just like completely this for them to get too close to Allah you have to completely dedicate yourself totally and you leave the dunya completely you can't even enjoy this night, can't even enjoy food, even intimacy, even marriage is frowned upon. Okay?
Whereas Islam said No,
Allah said what I have done here, Tony, but this monetarism, we did not prescribe it upon you.
Nakata gonna hide him. So Allah doesn't want us to have that kind of life, then you've completely detach yourself from the world. Rather, Allah says no problem. Islam says, you earn, you work, you go, you marry, you have children, you deal with your daily life. And there's nothing wrong with all of that. Rather, earning a livelihood is an obligation because we're highly varied environment believer.
So Islam doesn't prevent us from engaging with the dunya. But then what happens, someone can go to the other extreme, where once you go into the dunya, you can completely detach yourself from the AHA.
So those robinia is where people are detaching themselves completely from the dunya. And thinking just all day, night long, just worshiping worshiping and in the desert. And that's it. They are detaching themselves from the dunya. But then
some others can go to the other extreme, where they detach, they live as though they're never going to have a second life. It's all about just this life. It's all about just making money here, it's just about this. Now here present, forget about alcohol, they forget about Allah, they forget about the real purpose of the existence, which is the eternal life preparing for that, so they can go to that extreme.
Islam wants us to be in the middle,
balanced, where you live in this dunya you enjoy this dunya as well and you do all the things that are necessary, but at the same time, your heart and mind and soul is connected to Allah to Africa to the hereafter, you're always thinking about the ACARA the balance, and this is why Allah has made these certain times in the year.
The certain times for us as reminders, as a reminders, because we're in the dunya we might forget about Allah as a reminder that remember, it's like you know,
and these reminders are like constant. So like, for example, five times a day, five times a day, prayers. So you wake up in the morning, first thing, you'd make a dua you pray, you offer your Salah to the Fajr you make your morning of car yo yo concentrated on Allah you're thinking about Allah yo you connect to your heart and mind to Allah subhanaw taala to the author, you started your day fresh with slaughtered pleasure with a bit of recitation of the Quran, etc. Now what gonna be breakfast, gonna have your breakfast that's dunya ready? Dunya take your car dunya walk, train, to factory to business plays to the university to the workplace to your meeting, whatever to the office dunya
dunya dunya five, six hours and then
along comes from Allah food.
Don't forget Allah, come back. Pray Allah. So you come back from the dunya and you go to Allah again, you're going off for your bar, you can you connect your mind and the heart and the soul and the spirit to Allah subhanaw taala and then, okay, you come back now lunch and carry on with the rest of the day. After a few hours again, you might completely forget about Allah and Allah, the real purpose of existence straightaway another reminder don't ask. So five times as a matter of Asia, these are all daily reminders. And then there's a bigger reminder weekly reminders on how to Juma every week
and then throughout the year Allah has made these different different days Okay, first 10 days of you know,
will hija Hajj time once a year Ramadan and this is the whole purpose of why Ramadan is given because 11 months
of the year, okay, you're connected with the dunya. Ramadan, you come back, it's like once a year, you fully focus on the real purpose of creation. And within Ramadan, the last 10 Nights, especially for this, you know, this urbania as I said, we don't have this Rabbani and Islam, which is this ministers ism and this,
you know, detachment from the dunya. But just a flavor of it, just a taster of it is given in this last 10 Nights. This is why we have our ticker, what's the purpose of our 10, cough, cough, bear ticker for just give where it's a cough and basically means cutting yourself from all worldly activities to the point that normally, normally it's wrong, to cut yourself from your family. Normally, it's wrong not to talk to your family. Normally, it's wrong to avoid intimate relationships with your family. But these last 10 Nights, it's a bit of the taster of like if you're going in a desert, so this is you're going in a masjid. And you're detaching yourself completely.
There's no intimate relationship with your, with your spouse. And you're just 10 days and 10 nights, the last 10 days you've you are just completely detached from the dunya and connected to Allah. And this is why the real article brothers and sisters is where the whole purpose of Attica, Attica is worth someone completely detach them from the That's why if there are brothers and sisters who are should go in article, they should make sure I mean, I personally feel that
to go in Article and taking one of these with you
is probably completely going against the whole basic concept of Africa. Because now, back in the day, if you weren't in Africa, the only thing you would probably have a phone, maybe you might call your your family members once a day or something like that. But now if someone takes a smartphone, whether they are physically disconnected, because they've gone into the masjid, but they are mentally and spiritually and through the heart and mind and soul connected to the whole world wide web. So if you're going on online and looking here and looking there, and this, all of this, then it just it's not really hard to come to be honest. So this is the whole purpose of these, and a little
other as well. So the same issue with Rails to Jakarta, Allah is telling us Look, there is a special light, it's a very, very special night.
And but I'm not going to tell you so you seek for it. So you worship on not just one, like if I told us one night, it's just 27 Then that's it for the rest of the nights, we'll just completely shut off. So we don't know we try on 21st 23rd 25th 2729 Some people might try all 10 Nights, it could be any of these 10 nights or they you know, equally worship Allah and connect themselves to align all the 10 Nights. So this is these are just incentives, because really, it's all about connecting with Allah Subhana Allah doesn't need a special night and we you know, Allah doesn't need this special life to bless us. Allah is a highly of Ramadan and Shabbat on January February, he creates
everything the night of Ramadan and outside Ramadan, they all belong to Allah Subhana Allah but Allah is just giving us incentives to keep on turning to him, which means that the idea behind this is that we connect to Allah through these weekly, daily monthly yearly reminders. And you know, Allah has put these incentives, it keeps us connected. So that we don't disconnect too much keeps us connected. This is the whole idea. So this is about later the other witches are very, very blessed at night. And the whole Surah like I said, was revealed regarding Laila to the other night of other
in Salina who feel a little puddle. Indeed, we revealed it it mean in the book of Allah the Quran in Laila to puddle Allah said We revealed it in later.
And Allah also says in another place,
shahada Ramadan, a month of Ramadan. I love the on Zilla V Hill Quran it's that month in which the Quran was revealed. So when Allah says month of Ramadan is that month in which the book the Quran was revealed, and then in this surah other Allah says, Indeed we have revealed it in
Nayla Takada. So what does that tell us that may little cover is in Ramadan?
And I mean, it's very clear from these two if you put these two verses together, so it isn't a MOBA. But then like I said, because some there are some opinions that it could be outside of my band, but this these two verses are very strongly clearly you know, like explicitly say we put them together. So
Quran was revealed in this night and what we mean by the Quran has revealed that the Quran was revealed from lower low balled up to the heavens on this night like the whole Quran and then from there
upon the heart of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it was revealed over a period of 23 years slowly, slowly, gradually as and when there was need. So verses to be revealed on the messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam on different different times and over a period of 23 years, but in Enza La Villa Padre revealed it the whole of Quran Estacado was from in luxury food to the heavens
to the first guy, and this is the beginning of Indians anopheles and we know the surah in Anza now feel a little warmer Ragamala Leila to Padre hiraman Alpha, just before me was saying I called the last bit of his presentation, it is better than 1000 bytes. Now these are all just incentives. It is all incentives, the whole idea the bigger picture, you know, this is telling us is better than an eternity is better. It's not like only Okay, we're gonna start calculating. It's about a three years, four months. It doesn't mean that okay, if I offer my Isha today later to paddle, then I don't have to offer it for the next 83 years and four months? Of course not.
You know, because everything has to be put in place. If someone worships Allah all night, on the last on the 27th night, or the last 10 is 10 nights of Ramadan, and then go sleep and never worships Allah for the rest of the year. So no benefit really, though. The idea is to connect to Allah. Hi, Rahman Al Fisher, then as I like to work, connecting to Allah with the heart and soul, with the mind, there's a lots of ways to connect to Allah. And I'm just going to end with this point, that when we say we, you know, building a love for Allah subhanaw taala, connecting to Allah through different ways, and that's a topic on its own. How do we create this special connection with Allah
subhanaw taala? How do we connect with the mind with the heart with the soul spiritually? How do we connect constantly through these reminders, but then it becomes such that our whole life, from the moment we wake up to the moment we sleep every day, every week, every month, every year, for eternity, for for the whole this life. And then of course, in Accra, but we are connected to Allah, that's a topic on its own, there are different ways like we can go through like a list of 10 different ways in how we can build a very strong, a very powerful connection number, just two, I just remembered, I forgot this when I said powerful. I was gonna say that why I don't say later the
Night of Power, because little paddle has three meanings, just one minute. God
means one meaning is decree. It's tackled from a duck de Adara, who took the euro. So it's a night of deceit decision making the night of decreed that's why you might see some translations The Night of Decree. In other words, Allah knows about all of this, but in the execution of what he knows is it's just with the angels is on this night, throughout the year, who's going to do what and who's going to earn, how much and who's going to die, and who's going to be born and who's going to pass away and who's going to marry and it's going to have children and how much it is, who's going to going to be fortunate and who's going to commit sins, and who's going to be pious, who's going to
turn their life etc. So this is one meaning of later, but strong meaning of later, the Night of Decree. Another meaning is power with because otherwise from the order of quadra, the powerful law. So it's the Night of Power to general meaning the Night of Power, it's a powerful night, it's a powerful night to connect with Allah, it's a strong night to connect to the law. It talks about the power and the power of a loss. I know that as well. And there's a third meaning as well. There's other recoveries from you know,
like Manzella rudabeh, like, honor, status, it's a night of status is a night of honor. So you can say the Night of Decree the Night of Power, the night of honor, and status. This is a meaning of less than a quarter as well, the night of status and honor, meaning it's, we can also call it a little Mubaraka because the other verse of the Quran says, a night of Barak a night of blessings. So basically, you're connecting to Allah subhanaw taala in very many different ways. I talked about some recently, I had a few lectures in different parts of the country here and I was going abroad as well. I went through some of these ways, like there's one, connecting to Allah through sugar,
gratitude. It's an amazing, powerful, amazing, powerful way of connecting to Allah. That's a topic on its own, like counting your blessings, sugar and gratitude, the whole daily life connecting to Allah. And this is why, you know, so many of our supplications and doors that we make to Allah has the they begin with Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah means all Praise to Allah. It's thankfulness. It's showing gratitude and
There's other ways of connecting to Allah building a strong connection with him through the heart through the mind through the Soul constantly thinking thinking but one I just want to talk about one thing here which is dua just five minutes on this level and inshallah dua connecting to Allah, Allahu Allah but I personally feel that there is nothing more powerful, there is nothing more honorable, we can use the same laser cutter meanings, there is nothing more powerful, there is nothing more honorable and nothing more prestigious and nothing more. Greater. Then, to add supplication before Allah in building a connection with Allah dua itself, we need to like a couple
of hours into ah there's so many issues, what is the definition of dua, how to make dua, what are the etiquettes of do what are the times and why should shall be most likely be accepted? Why do I is sometimes not accepted etcetera, etcetera. But just this point here, I want to say is that
dua is such a powerful tool that is given to us and that's why the Hadith of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do Silla, not mean to Allah is a weapon of obedience weapon, it's your weapon. It's with which you navigate through this life and do I should be constant constant in builds a strong connection with Allah you know sugar and do are both are really important. This is why you know sort of prefer to have solidified the highs a summary of the whole Quran is the essence is the cream of the book of Allah. If you look at the beginning part is sugar. The latter part is dark. In other words, the whole summary essence Hadassah cream, the you know the summary of the book
of Allah, sugar, gratitude, thankfulness and supplication and hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa Rahmani Raheem Americium we did. This is all sugar gratitude, thanking Allah praising Allah, and then a year can never do it dinner sought out on wisdom. So rotten, Latina and untidy, every day we are making dua.
Now, this dua
is really powerful in connecting ourselves with Allah subhanaw taala.
We should ask we are always looking every human being is needed. We are always in need of something we should ask for every major thing minor things small thing even like the Hadith says even ask if your shoelace is broken. Ask Allah.
Now, you know what this means. This is not really shoelace shoelace This is talking about things which you or I might think it's so insignificant, but ask Allah like suddenly, I'm just looking for my phone. I dropped my phone somewhere. I was using a pen and he fell down.
Islam is telling us if you want to constant connection with Allah, you don't even have to raise your hands do ah
it's better to raise hands.
And one of the etiquettes but it's not a requirement to some two hours can be done without raising hands. So the mouse just starts well luck, please let me find my pen. Oh Allah. Oh Allah please let me find my pen. Oh Allah. I want to know from pen please give it back to me granted to me.
Allow me to find it. Things like that. This is what this shoelace
we take the means but also like you know, everything's in the power of Allah so you know, you might think if my shoelace or is broken, I'll go to the shop repair shop, the shoe shop, where the repair but number one, you know Will you be able to walk there and when you'll be able to find the right person when they charge you the right price you know when they charge extortionate price all this you know the minds and hearts of people in the courtroom and the power of Allah and the control of Allah. So a believer first tends to Allah, every small base you need, major, minor need be turned to Allah. And remember, we always get reward for dua. That's the most amazing part is that we ask Allah
for our needs, but Allah is rewarding us. How amazing is that? We make dua to Allah. For us. We're not making the art for Allah.
We're not making dua for someone else. We should do that as well of course, but even for someone else is kind of for us because we love that person, parents children, so it's still this game for us. It's for us.
But Allah says that you are making dua for your needs for you the needs of your family members and your loved ones and your family and your relatives and your friends and your needs. I should reward you for asking me. How amazing is that? A da
da da who will regard to our is worship is the essence of worship. It's a bada and we can reward it. That's the instant benefit of Da instant benefit is like straightaway. You want to connect
in the dunya people get irritated when you ask keep keep asking. Allah is happy rather Allah is angered.
Mala Miss La La yogabody is a Hadith of the Messenger of Allah and he was salam. Where he says Melanie's Elena he elderberry. Allah is angered Allah is angered if you don't ask.
So dua itself is an act of reward. We can ask for our worldly needs. But I will mention one thing that yes, we are asking for our worldly needs. We also need to ask for our next one you need sometimes we forget our next world needs again here, the parents don't only keep on asking about oh Allah grant me a nice bow. So I want to get married. I wonder this I want money. I want Baraka I want one risk job, you know this, of course, no problem ask us, we should ask and we get rewarded as well for that. But, but we should never forget, and there's another eternal life and we need our dua, that eternal life requires our do our move. Don't neglect that life. Yes. Make the art for the
78 years of this life, which is a short one. We need a good life here. Robina attina duniya Hazara Orfila hora de Hasina famous dua beautiful dua comprehensive amazing dua Tina dunya, hacer una fulfill accurately has an Ebola in this dunya we want has an award goodness, and we want Christina has an asari in Accra,
Ghana, this is a short 8090 years life 7080 years life.
Why should do we neglect the eternal life we need to ask for that so ask for the needs of the Hereafter ask for Paradise as for the pleasure of Allah asked to see him on Yom Okayama ask Allah to be saved and protected from hellfire ask Allah for entry into paradise. But the main thing is, we want to Ridwan you want your pleasure Allah, Allah Khomeini a little girly Aloka well Jenna, this is prophetic dua Allahumma India's Luca de Baca Well, Jana, Oh Allah, I want your pleasure and Paradise really, it's your pleasure. Paradise is like a side thing. It's not really it's the main thing is I want your pleasure. If I tell you a pleasure, I'll go paradise. I want your pleasure. It's not the
sweet you're giving me it's your happiness. You want someone like your parents or somebody it's not about what they're giving you. That's just like a sign of their love for you. I want your love. Allow me to look at a book or Genova although becoming psychotic or not. I am seeking your protection a refuge for
protection from your displeasure and hellfire. So how far is mentioned second, but I don't want your displeasure like you being upset
and displeased with me. That is a greater issue. That's a killer. More so than going into hellfire. Allah being displeased like imagine your Lord Your Creator, our Lord Our creator is displeased with us. There's so these there's a lot of beautiful prophetic to ask Allah how many
will I ask you for your love? Subhanallah you know what this means? All I'm asking you for your love. I am asking you for your love. It's general which means Oh Allah, I am asking you to love me and am I asking you to place in my heart love for you both ways. This book is general Allahumma in need as a Luca Hogberg Oh Allah I ask you for your for your love. Meaning in my heart, I have love for you and for your love. Meaning I want you to love me.
And I want the love of those people who love you. Here's when you could have two meanings. I specifically asked one of my teachers about this, that can you have both meanings because one meaning is clear. love Allah grant me your love worship Bergman you had and grant me the love of those who love you which means that in my heart I want to love those people who love you. But also second meaning that I want those people who love you to love me.
I would really suggest to go through all this prophetic to us and these prophetic doors are amazing. Amazing read a good book called Mona jack of all accepted, accepted whispers translated into English and a few other translations were all the two hours from the Quran and Sunnah have been gathered, read them, with subject with translations with understandings with meanings connect the heart and mind mind and soul to Allah with this amazing weapon that we have been given, we have been given. And remember he might give us what we asked him,
but he might not give us
we should come we should invoke supplicate bag with conviction. Now the best of the eyes or the rubber comes around we're healthier. The Quran says hold on to your Lord.
Hold on to load.
Although I'm healthier, begging Lee and discreetly, secretly, the best doors that are done are those that are done privately, between you and your Lord has nobody else baby tonight you could do this. Go into a room. Like no one's there, knowing your children, your spouse, your siblings, your parents, whoever, nobody just locked the door. Close the lights, dark, dark room.
Offer maybe Tahajjud prayer 100 Prayer. And, you know, just one thing here before so many things come into the mind. You know, a lot of times when we talk about these things, connecting to Allah, the heart is broken and shedding tears. This is really amazing. Rubbish. Remember, this is all for the, you know, this is not just for, you know, our hearts been broken because of worldly things, that we only go to Allah because you know, there's a problem in life. Of course, we should do not a problem. And like I said for this, but sometimes, you know, we only go to Allah because it's a problem in life or because you know, things are not going well. So let me go and cry to Allah and
you know, I'm heartbroken, heartbroken because my boyfriend left me
because my girlfriend no longer texts me so I'm heartbroken. This is I mean, you shouldn't be having a boyfriend girlfriend anyway, in the beginning.
This heartbroken pneus is really you know, when we talk about heart being broken, it's really heart being broken in terms of sins being connected, committed that I am heartbroken that I committed sins before. All my heart yearns for Allah, heart once this love of Allah in it, it's all that kind of spiritual aspect. So anyway, going to the room, shutting the night lights, dark, who may be offering tahajjud Salah a couple of
records also Serato Hydra is a very, very powerful Salah
pray of need need of this dunya need of the Agora for whatever reason, and then not connecting to Allah shedding tears you can make drawing sujood as well just go into sujood as well and just cry Allah and say, I want your love. I want your pleasure. I want your love of Allah. I want my heart to be filled with your love. And I want you to have ultimate love from imagine, you know when someone you really respect and they love you like sometimes, you know there's one teacher that I absolutely adore and love and you know when someone says oh, he said something, this good thing about you so much joy comes into the heart that he'd said a few words about about you or you know, someone you
respect and honor and love imagine Allah loving us What greater thing can there be in this life than Allah wanting us loving us liking us? You know, you know, we say we have a soft spot for someone, Allah having a soft spot for us and then if that you know, Tabby and the way of saying is correct, but imagine this love of Allah, constantly, you know, asking crying to Allah for this inshallah you will see, you will see the change in your life, we will see the change in our lives, we will see uniqueness in our hearts and souls, the way our heart and souls are connected. constantly throughout, if we can constantly do it, do it, not just one off, but constantly like even after
Ramadan. You know, we shouldn't have these kind of nights where we go and connect to Allah at least once a week, if not once a month, where we go privately with Arabba Contadora raffia can connecting to Allah talking to Allah, you know
supplicating begging with conviction, talk to Allah, one of the chashu has to say, constantly talk to her like I said there could be even during the day talk to Allah you go into the car, talk to Allah, you know, while you're driving, talk to Allah, Allah, I'm talking to you, you know, talk about this world issues, exploit the issues.
Have a conversation with Allah subhanaw taala and finally, Allah might give might not get
there's no guarantee. Again, the reward does guarantee because he's told us clearly through his Hadith and through the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam so the reward is there instance we've got that
Okay, so there is no such thing as is pointless making dua if it doesn't get accepted because number one you've connected to Allah, you've become closer to Allah. Number two, he's given you lots of rewards. So you've got that for the ark. So every no dua is in vain. No dua is pointless. Because we've got like sometimes we if we go into
it might be such that we might go into Africa and say these are all the this is amazing reward for you. As you can see,
this is not because of any Salah you prayed or any Teow of the Quran and Decker or a good deeds or any good courteous actions or charity or any help and assistance, some not. These are all those
What as you made you made like 733 to us which were not accepted of yours in the dunya this is all the reward imagined someone I don't know, we might just start thinking, you know, you know the other 500 to us, I hope they weren't accepted as well, for that short 6070 years of life like,
Okay, now imagine this eternal life, I could have had another similar type of reward. So never think die is pointless or waste of time because it's bad, you get a reward. However, Allah might sometimes give you what you're asking for. And many scholars have said this based on evidence from the Quran so no but if it's about Allah Allah will definitely accept as karma for hedaya One of my teachers moved to talk with money have a little law recently said We ask Allah to forgive our sins but at the same time don't just stop there. Don't say Oh ALLAH forgive me a long lecture tonight. On little Takada, one of the great two hours is this Allahumma in the iPhone to enable for for any occasion of
the law and asked all messenger of Allah peace and blessings be upon him if I do finally little wash do I shall I make? He said, say Allahumma indica. foon to him Hibbeler 451. In Ola you are very forgiving very careful when it's a very exaggerated form of forgiveness, you are a food to herbal alpha, you love to forgive forgive me. So making dua to forgive making dua to Allah to forgive our sins but at the same time not stop the shutter both monitors don't stop them but also add to it. Oh Allah save and protect me from committing sins in the future.
So it's actually Oh, I just keep it Forgive me i Oh Allah, forgive my sins and inshallah after Ramadan keep on forgiving me because I'm going to continue committing sins. So yeah, every month, every week, I'm going to commit so many things of keeping forgetting, forgiving, that's, that's bad. So idea is all whatever, I've committed sins, forgive me those sins, but in the future, protect me. Protect me, save me safeguard me. Allah was definitely asked if you ask Allah for hedaya Allah for changing of life or piety or law changed my life made me righteous make me pious, make me.
Someone who prays regularly, make me a person of prayer, fasting, make me someone who avoid sins, these two are inshallah Tofik. From Allah, they will be accepted. As for dunya we issues Allah might give some time sometimes why not? You know, like, something to him, he might not based on what's good for us, Allah is a key. You know, we don't know. Sometimes a child asks the Father for something. Because we don't we don't know the greatest scheme of things.
Imagine, you know, there's a gun here or a knife. And the child has the four four year old kid is asking the mother or the father, I want this knife as a toy. Like, oh, can I give this please? You know, the father said, Ask me anything I'll give you. If you ask me anything, I'll give you been a really good boy, I'll give you anything. Okay, give me that knife. I want to play with it. No, I'm not giving you that. You said you'd give me everything. But he knows that this is not right for the child. So we might ask for something. Through our limited understanding, we might think that's good for us. But Allah knows better, he knows better, what's good for us at what time might be something
not good for us now, maybe later. This is why if not secondary says in one of his poetry, that Allah will definitely accept your prayers, but in a way of his choosing, not your way of choosing and at a time of his choosing, not at a time of your choice.
In a way, so we asked in a particular way, he will respond but not in this particular way, in a different way. It might give it in a different form. And at a time of his choosing, not the time of our choosing. I've asked Allah for it now. But Allah might give it to me after six days or after seven months. So it's all in the power encoder of Allah, but we should still continuously keep on making dua and sometimes people see like, miraculous ways of how they do other and on many stories of people who have asked for certain things. And then two hours have been accepted miraculously, like you know Hanalei like in amazing ways, they seen the, you know, the help and assistance of
Allah like instantly in their life happens, it's happened to a lot of people but this happens when people are connected to Allah, that beg Allah that cry to Allah they can with conviction, and you know, the constantly connect to Allah and have this very strong link and relationship with the Creator, then they will see the manifestations of the supplications and then two hours in this life as well as you know, the them being rewarded for the dollars and so this is something that we should constantly do to I'm going to end with these three words inshallah. We got last two, three nights left now 27 Tonight, then 28 And then another really, really amazing 29th night as well.
and you might get a 30 at night as well. So whatever is remaining, we shall try to spend as much time as possible into our and other forms of worship May Allah grant us the tofield from Allah grant us ability and Allah
because close to him and make us from His beloved people, make us of those that he has love for and grant us in our heart. His love and in Europe allowed me to love
