00:00:01--> 00:00:36

I was relying on a sheet on regimes Willow Manor, Haman hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa not only he also he married my beloved brothers and sisters in Islam Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah. We have reached the end of the night of Ramadan year in Cape Town and Alhamdulillah This is the most important night of Ramadan, it is the most important night of the year, and it could be the most important night of our lives. Well, we know that this amazing night of labor to color the night of power and destiny. We know that many of the scholars of the Sahaba have mentioned that it shifts from year to year. If you were to choose a

00:00:36--> 00:01:16

single night in which to have an added emphasis, then it is the 27th night of Ramadan. Many Sahaba swore that it is this night, the 27th Night of the Prophet Salaam, and basically instructed them to perform Salah to exert themselves, and that they saw in their lifetimes, that the 27th night of Ramadan was that night in which a little quarter came about. And so as we exert ourselves in the last 10 nights, and we do an extra emphasis on the odd nights, we take an even further, you know, an extra push on the 27th of Ramadan. And so one may give an analogy that while label color shifts from night to night in different years, it most frequently falls on 27 night. And so this night is that

00:01:16--> 00:01:50

night we should, you know, put all our emphasis that it could be that this this night, that which is a little harder and reminding ourselves again, that the prophets of Salaam told us at the beginning of Ramadan, remember of the blessings of this month that there is a night in it. We Salah on that night, all your sins are forgiven on that night is a lifetime of good deeds. When the Quran tells you that, that it's greater than 1000 months, it means that if you got I always made the analogy that it's a paycheck times 1000 if you look at your salary times 1000, when you get that paycheck, it basically means you don't have to work again, it is enough for an entire lifetime. That award you

00:01:50--> 00:02:23

can get in this one night is enough to sit you up for all of eternity. We know that the prophets of Salaam tells us the Quran tells us and we know from the Hadith, that it is this night we the angels are sort of in this congregation with Allah subhanho wa Taala receiving the decrees receiving the instructions. And then they leave the seminar what and they all congregate here to the earth because the angels, they seek out places of the earth they seek out places of Salah, they seek out the company of people that are doing good on the earth. And especially while we're doing the Tafseer of Surah mulk we realize how big and vast the universe is. And on top of it there are six Muslim out

00:02:23--> 00:02:56

yet the holiest place in all of the Sun hour is this little planet, this little earth with the believers worshipping Allah, that is where the angels want to descend. And Allah says not only do the angels descend, but the root meaning jabril Now we know God is a Salaam, his job was to bring down revelation that was his primary function. And now that revelation has come to an end, after the demise of gonna be so shallow, really, there's no reason for video to come to the earth, He doesn't come to the earth really what what purpose is for him to come, the only time he comes, is on this night of labor to color we as he came to bring the Quran he sits in the company or he attends the

00:02:56--> 00:03:29

different gatherings with the Quran is recited. And so we pray Allah legendario you know, into upon us in our homes now before it would have been maybe the massage. Now the amazing thing about this year, there is no magic really that is that is performing tarawih so the thorough work is being done in the house in the houses. And so Jubilee will attend the house of some very special people who knows, maybe they're unknown to us, but those special uncles and Auntie's that are very dear to Allah. Allah knows who they are. And so God will come and convey that Salam we know Allah says Salaam when you hit them up like fudger, one of the Tafseer is that that as the angel say Salaam

00:03:29--> 00:04:04

when the believers intergender they will say Salaam when the souls are taken, well, you've succeeded. This is a sanitation from the angels, they might enter upon houses amongst us, and they may say Salaam to you and your family because of the sincerity of your Salah, the sincerity of your worship. And that is why we should really really push ourselves at Panama. Imagine the angels are descending upon us and he believed himself descends into our homes in Ibiza. Sangam, as we said, mentioned that there are more angels that will come down to the dounia on that evening than they are pebbles and stones that are on the ground. And then of course, the most important thing of later

00:04:04--> 00:04:38

color is that our decrees and our destiny is being finalized or being put out on this night. And if we do our fleet is of paramount importance we make the law and so when as you make dua, on this evening, you make the offer yourself, you make the offer your family's well being your risk to be expanded your life to be extended, you know that Allah subhanho wa Taala keeps you safe and keeps all of us safe. And of course, the most important things are of salvation. That was part of what Allah make us of those who are free from jahannam and that he's behind Allah decrees for us that we will be in Jannah that our names are written down in the register of those will be successful and

00:04:38--> 00:05:00

for yourself and for the entire panel and in fact the whole world. People ask can I make dua for non Muslims Yes, you can the living once you can. And then of course only for those Muslims who have passed away we'd like to offer the people in the Cold War. Remember the people of the grave if they could ever come back it would be under snipe because there is really no better time to be making salah and making Africa and to be besieging Allah's mercy. This is the pinnacle. This is the

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

highlight of the entire year and so we ask Allah subhanaw taala as we begin the evening that he gives us the strength to see the entire night through, people ask what is the best thing I can do on this night. The best thing we can do is Salah. That is the absolute best thing you can do what kind of Salah what type of Salah, Salah meaning the same way you would make normal Salah you would stand and you would recite from the Quran either from memory or resign from the must have prolong your standing as much as you can. Many is in the Quran. Allah Spangler speaks about the the pious people are those who spend the night in standing meaning standing in salah and in sujood. And so spend a

00:05:34--> 00:06:08

lot of time as you can in sajida making sure you eat and in the To Do you praise Allah, you glorify His name's mentioned all the blessings that we have and give praise to him. And then of course, ask and beg and plead and cry. That is how this night should be spent. I have received a lot of questions about SB Sala, as I said before, and I know there are other views, the evidence for it is not very, very sound. It is therefore based we know what an obese woman did, he did not perform well. There's no Hadith that says on the ninth of April, quarterly performance vs. Allah, or they use that time in, you know, intelligence, intelligence is like tarawih. Basically, it's the same

00:06:08--> 00:06:42

like da da da da is like dadgad early in the evening. And target is more towards the last the latter part of the night, it would just be that perhaps your Roku, and your suit is made longer linked in the Roku linked in the suit. And in that you make a car and you make draw. And of course, if you are going to pace yourself and you know it's difficult, and very few people can actually spend the entire night and focus the entire night in evader, you want to make sure that you are spending a big chunk of your night this evening from about two o'clock of pasta until so what so whole time that is the pinnacle of the night that is the holiest of the holiest night is that last third of the night.

00:06:42--> 00:07:16

So the night of love to cuddle, the angels descend and gibreel descends. And in the last third of the night in a manner which one was majesty, he himself descends to accept the two hours. And so Subhanallah that is the time when we really want to be focused, may Allah grant us the best and grant us this be the best available color for all of us and to grant all outdoors to be accepted only by that one of the benefits is we in a very strange Ramadan, it might not be that we get a chance to spend the entire night a week as we can this year perhaps. And so May Allah subhanaw taala grant us all the strength to worship Him in the way he wants to be worshipped. I mean, what we

00:07:16--> 00:07:48

continue now with our Tafseer of sort of Allah subhanaw taala. In the last section with two types of people, there is the one who walks upright, upright, meaning he is walking straight, he's on the right path. He's aware of the signs, you know, there's a decent word called being woke being welcoming, being away being in tune with what's happening to the two people there's the one who is away, and then there's the one who's in delusion unless he's he's fearful or he is misguided. He's completely lost. And he's walking basically with his head in the sand. He cannot see where he's going and what will be for him. Now we continue to rely on the sheet on the regime. The next batch

00:07:48--> 00:08:27

of iron, there'll be a number of them will follow will say cool say and I did instruction to the navy seals on them and to us as well. Allah subhanaw taala is insisting that we should say certain things about a lot and what he wants us to mention as a response to certain questions and of course to ourselves and the disbelievers out of alignment methodology. hula hula the insha Allah Kusama pasado, en either kalila Matusz guru, Allah says say he it is it is he only him who produced you unsure outcome is really the word that is used to describe a flower and a plant that blossoms and is blooming and is built up from you know from from a seed to a sapling until it becomes a plant and a

00:08:27--> 00:09:03

beautiful plant. Allah says he is the one that unshackle he nourished you and produced you watch Allah come and he gave you the ability to hear the ability to see and either and he's given you hearts of EDA is the poodle of word for artist one heart and of hearts kalila mata, Kuru, very few, very few of those who give thanks to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So I want to point out here, that of the physical blessings, of course is giving us the ability to see the ability to hear the heart, of course is the is the center of spirituality and the center of learning and ability to see the truth from falsehood. So Allah says that he's given you the physical blessings of sight and sound, but at

00:09:03--> 00:09:41

the same time, there's a spiritual connotation. Yeah, he gave us the ability to see the truth, to hear the truth and the heart to recognize the truth, but very few of us is called meaning hardly any nothing. The word very few is even less than that hardly any policies are grateful to the blessings, the physical blessings. And of course, even less than that are grateful to the spiritual blessings Allah has given us. He has given us the ability to discern guidance from us guidance, but very few, very few listen to that, and are away and take note of the science, cool, one lady that are confused all the way to Allah Subhana. Allah says again, let's say he is the only one that there are means

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

multiplied or to produce you from that he's the one that produced you from the earth and then spread you out there are needs to be spread out and to have a multitude. Allah made you into many numbers, Allah made one inside one item and from him he spread us out throughout the world, meaning we've populated the whole world. The whole world is our playground. Basically, Allah says

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

He is the one that made you and spread you out throughout the earth, what led him to shoot, but ultimately you also recarey us up again. So as we are scattered away, don't think we are out of his reach, he's going to gather us all together once again, and to piano. Alice, Pandora always links the gathering and kiama and the resurrection with the earth, the Earth is always shown that look, we came from the earth, Allah Subhana, Allah created Adam from the soil of the earth, and of course to the earth we will return once we die during that period, or while we alive we walk on the earth we eat from it, but then ultimately to the earth is our return. And then as the plants are nourished,

00:10:35--> 00:11:10

and they did Earth is revived, so to where we exit the earth once again, and that is of course the life afterwards. And that is that is Kiana. And so Allah subhanaw taala is reminding that they will be an account and they will be this gathering hashtag Sharon is really what is referred to when you herd cattle, and analyze it, it's a really heavy kind of analogy, because we will be shoved and pushed outside our graves naked, scared and being herded like animals basically, towards the judgment on the day of the AMA. And so Allah says, we say say to them, that Allah is the only one who made us and spread us out through the earth, and he's the one to whom we will return. We are

00:11:10--> 00:11:42

cool, they will say, and they are saying and it's actually it's the prison thing they are saying. They mean the disbelievers were called Luna Mata has a lot to include in terms of the thing. When is this promise this promise you're telling us of this afterlife? this gathering the schema? When is it going to come if you are telling the truth if you are being honest, and of course this is a rhetorical question is not a question to actually determine a time it basically says, you really really want us to believe that when we die that there's a life afterwards and Alessia Kudo and mean, every generation This isn't a Puja, hell, every single time you will have a big group of people that

00:11:42--> 00:12:13

will deny the life after this. And we live in a time Subhanallah with atheism is perhaps the the dominant religion of the world at the moment in terms of who runs this world. And so this is the standard view of many people in the world. They don't believe that these are life after death. All these is the now and so when you ask them and you speak about this camera, they will say what are you talking about? What like show me someone that bring back our forefathers? Do you really think that when we are that we are dust all of this is going to come back to life? And if so when give me a day Tell me a time. So then Allah says when they asked you this respond to them cool enamel

00:12:13--> 00:12:46

anymore in the law, or in them and another human being say to them, visually, the knowledge of the of kiama the our only belongs to Allah, no one knows when kiama is what in them and another one will be in and out and the prophets are going to be saying now this is to the prophets of Allah. He says to them, I'm only giving you a warning. I'm only here to warn you. I don't know when qiyamah is going to come I don't I can't bring him about I can stop it. I'm just yeah, giving you delivering a message, you know, take it up with it with the Master, I am just the the messenger. And so what we also learned from this ayah is that the knowledge of tm belongs to a last panel that alone there's a

00:12:46--> 00:13:22

beautiful Hadith hadith of gibreel which jabril asked them every so seldom Tell me when is Kiana and then ivysaur salaam responds to say neither the one being questioned? And the question and meaning neither me Mohammed salatu salam, no, you LGBT you know anything about when qiyamah will come that knowledge is one of those hidden secrets that not a single one of the occasion knows when our last panel data will be created in Surah. Yaseen, we mentioned that Israel in Israel feel rather the angel will blow the trumpet, signaling the beginning of qiyamah, he himself does not know when he's gamma, or rather, his mouth is on the horn, and His eyes are focused at the waiting for the command,

00:13:22--> 00:13:55

because it could happen at any time. So we also see from this ayah, that it is of those things, this these knowledge, which belongs to Allah alone, and then the resource Allah is very humble here. And that he's saying, I don't know when kiama is, I'm just here to deliver a message. And many times when, when people would ask about piano, there are those who ask it in a way like this. denying it means kiama going to come in, I don't believe it is you talking nonsense. You're telling the truth. But it also happened that many believers would ask them to be so Samia rasulillah salam tell us when Kim is going to happen, it's a sincere kind of question. And his response would would always be

00:13:55--> 00:14:29

would be one that will make you reflect and say, remember that when you die, that is kiama for you. tiama can come anytime, not the big kiama. But just when you when when we die, that's it, we get to see the angels, you get to see the grave, you get to see everything becomes through around you get to see gender, you get to see gender. And so piano would have would have arrived. And so he would ask a response to that question would be what have you prepared for piano? If piano were to come now? Meaning if he were to die now, are you ready for it? Are you ready for it to arrive? Because it could come anytime anyway at any moment. And so even to the disbelievers, those who deny and they'll

00:14:29--> 00:15:00

say, you know, if you're a prophet, how can you know when the scammer responds to them is, well, do you know when you're going to die? Leave the big kiama Do you know when you will die? And so this is this is something for us to think about. Again, as we are talking about the Night of Decree, we know that this panel of the Angel of Death is going to get a record of all the people who are going to die. In fact, if they live recorded is tonight or tomorrow it could be any like he's a record or his list of people who sold to be taken is not complete. You and I could be on that list of analysts very possible that we could be on that list of the 20

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

20 souls, we are the listeners for next year, we might not see the next one. And so piano is an inevitability that can happen anytime for any one of us. And so the best we can do is, is to prepare. So Allah subhanaw taala responds to those who deny it. This is for those who don't believe hamdullah we do believe in it. But for those who don't believe Allah says vilamoura ozone for 10 see at Hulu. Hola, Dina cafaro. Kira has already come to me down a las pantallas is on that day when they see it approaching zilpha zilpha means approaching step by step basically, as it unfolds gradually. So Allah says, On that day, when they see tiama unfolding gradually, like harder off the

00:15:38--> 00:16:10

order, it will just be one blow after the next First they will die. And when they die, they will see the angel of death, they will come to know the angels of punishment, they will come to know the ASVAB of the cover, they will come to know the questioning of the cover, they will get to see the places in general and janam the police in general that they will be forbidden from ever entering into the place of Jannah waiting for them, then they will you know the one and they will be pushed out of the grave. And then of course all the horrors and the torment of gamma Allah says it will unfold step by step as that happens, then you will see the faces will turn bad see if meaningful

00:16:10--> 00:16:45

become bad, it will become completely sour it will become the status the faces will completely turn doc with the realization that everything was true. And then it will be sent to the most could be the angels or it could be all himself saying this is what you used to ask for. So now you're getting what you asked for you asked when is kiama brinkema it is now coming and this is exactly what you wanted, and now it befalls us panela. Of course the now there's no nobody time we think about Mandala as we stand in later to color kiama is a thing that is on the foremost in our minds. Because none of us know a way we are at the moment. As soon as can be more than our good deeds. And if that

00:16:45--> 00:17:17

occurs, then this panel of the person who's left side of the scale is more than he's in trouble. But this is that one night where you can get the entire left side forgiven. And if the right side of the scale of good deeds is light, and this is also that one night where you can get more reward, more blessings, more good deeds on your scale than any other moment. And so scatola we pray Allah subhanaw taala that when qiyamah unfolds and it will be horrible, it will be difficult for everyone, no one will be safe for me when he unfolds that has been the companionship of those who are successful and may we be saved from the hardest and the torments on that day and then may pass by

00:17:17--> 00:17:26

very quickly so that we may intergender and to be close but Allah Allah bless us all and except from us and grant us to achieve later for color, like Allah. Hi. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah la when it got to
