as always we begin by praising Allah Subhana Medina with our Creator sustainer nourish, protect and cure. We ask Allah the Almighty to Chava his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his bath with utmost sincerity until the day of the AMA, my dear respected elders brothers in Islam. First and foremost, I enjoined upon myself and then all of y'all who are present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala and to be conscious of a loss behind and more data during every single second of our lives, if we wish to attain success in
this world as well as the hereafter. May Allah the Almighty make us all from the people of taqwa in sha Allah Allah for today's Juma sermon.
The topic will be the Night of Decree and inshallah Allah we will be touching on Laila to the Father, but we will not be touching on the night itself, but rather we will be touching on the term, Laila to lucado. We will discuss in regard to the term Layla Toluca, and also if time permits, we will touch a bit on the virtue of laylat, we'll call them
now the term Laila to father consists of two words Layla and Layla in the sentence is translated as night night from whoo Shams from the setting of the sun until to the oceans of the next day, until the sunrise of the next day. This is the definition of Laila. Now as for alpha, alpha, either you can either say it as a quarter in the sense with a sukoon over the doll, or elkader, with a Fatah over the doll elkader or al Qaeda.
Now, this has a few meanings. This particular term has a few meanings and the scholars Rafi mahoma law, they have brought the meanings out and in general in terms of in in in in relation to Arabic terms. I have said this before, but I don't recall mentioning it here. We have a logon definition. In other words, a literal definition and also an Eastern philosophy definition IE a technical or a conventional definition. To elaborate further if you were to take the term sola, sola, it's lower than its literal definition would be da. In other words, in vocation that is its literal definition, but it's philosophy if you look at its technical definition in other words, on a Sheree perspective
swala is a set of actions is a set of actions prescribed actions that begin from zero to a from ie the first step be that we tie in Sala and ends off with the slim assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah. This is the Salafi definition of a sola, likewise a father or a father, it has a logo and a literal definition and and his philosophy definition, but both the definitions do not differ much we will touch on them both in sha Allah hota Allah. So some of the scholars they state that one meaning that can be given to alpha or alpha is alpha one
Which means the decree the Divine Decree of Allah behind them for the Allah. Another translation that can be given is Allah hokum It is also known as the knight of ordain men, the ordained men of Allah Subhana Allah, and also scholars state that it is a night of Lucia and in other words, a night of power, it is known as the night of power, the night of grandia, Allahu Akbar, and also some scholars state that the term father or mother gives about a meaning of tau z. Now, this is a very surprising
translation, if you will, but then we have the scholars have matched it to the night of power and we will bring about that explanation to insha Allah it is a beautiful explanation, because the meaning of tau d means constrained in other words narrowness of the means constraint or narrowness. So the question could arise How can we attribute this particular term of the year to lay the colocado? In other words, how can we attribute narrowness How can we attribute constraint to later to recover some scholars rahima who moolah have brought about a beautiful explanation Allahu Akbar and I am sure that this may be the first time for some of us to ever listen to this explanation a llama Rahim
Allah except for those molossia behind them Medina has opened the doors of beneficial knowledge. May Allah the Almighty opened the doors of beneficial knowledge for all of us. So Scott, some of the scholars Rahim Allah they state that this meaning of the year, in other words narrowness and constraint is brought about because on that amazing night, Allahu Akbar, on the night of power, on the Night of Decree, there will be so many angels on the face of this earth, there will be so many melodica on the face of this earth, that in reality, there will be constraint Allahu Akbar, there will be narrowness because there will be no space because that many melodica will descend Allahu
Akbar, such a blessing and such a powerful night Allahu Akbar.
Hadith is in Abu Dhabi
and Abu huraira the last one, he states that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said and the narration goes along the lines of these words, that the number of the angels that will descend on that particular night, the number of the angels that will descend on the night of power on the Night of Decree on layer two the other will be more in number than the pebbles which are on this earth a lot of pebbles can be even trying to count how many pebbles are on the face of this earth. There will be more melodica on that night even more than the pebbles on the face of this is such a blessing such an amazing and such a powerful night May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless us
all with the opportunity to attain the coming later to further amin
Allah the Almighty He states in Surah davon honey HMI
hammy Walter bill moving lost behind mo Donna swears upon the clear book I eat on in an zelner houfy Lee let him move
We have revealed or sent down an outcomes about a pronoun in our answer now who who is a pronoun in our answer now who we sent it down feel a let him move
in a blessing on a blessed night. It is upon that consensus of the scholars of the past year they say that that pronoun that who that pronoun refers to the Koran in an zelner who we revealed we sent down the Koran fee lady let him move on MOBA Raka. In a blizzard on a blessing night a powerful night a noble night IE Laila to another place of us behind and Medina.
States shabu Ravana Ella de de la.
It was in the month of Ramadan that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down the Quran.
Now there could be a question that can arise in regard to these Ayah because number one, a question could arise. Allah subhana wa Taala stating that he sent it down on the bless at night I elated to the Father, and then another is stating that it came down in Ramadan. And then we also know that the Quran did not come Joomla and wahida it did not come down all at once. We know that in accordance to various occasions and different timings. Ir came down upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So then is there a contradiction amongst the ayah? Allah Allahu Akbar, there is no contradiction at all. It is all from one source, it is from Allah subhanho wa Taala that will never ever be a
contradiction. If you think that there is a contradiction then something is wrong with our minds. It is something wrong with our intellect and our minds. There will never be a contradiction. So scholars Rahim Allah bring about a German bring about a conclusion in regard to this ayah they state that it was in the month of Ramadan. It was on Laila to say that the Koran was sent down to the summer or dunia to the heavens of this earth. It was sent down to the heavens of this earth, and from there onwards, in accordance to various occasions and various timings. It came down upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, please remember Salawat whenever I mentioned
his beautiful name, my mother, my father and myself we ransom for him. In accordance to occasions in accordance to timings it used to come down from somato dounia to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during a span of time it came down part by part Allah Akbar. So many others in Islam, many respected elders and brothers in Islam this night. The the nobility of this night is because of the poor on Allahu Akbar, the nobility of this month that we are in is because of the Quran, the Quran, the speech of Allah Subhana Allah, the Quran, which is a blessing upon this oma Allahu Akbar. It is because of the Quran, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, so much of nobility so much of
honor has been attributed to this month of Ramadan and likewise Laila to recorded otherwise translated as the night of power or the Night of Decree.
Now what was behind that who are the Allah states?
fee ha, you Prabhu ambrane hockey. Now it is in this night that all matters are decreed Allahu Akbar. Now coming back to the initial term, we are the crux of the photo today Laila to further we discussed Layla and now we have a cada elkader now father, like I translated in the beginning is pre determination, pre determination. Now let us try to touch on it briefly. It is a matter My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has warned us that we are not supposed to dispute in regard to al Qaeda. We are not supposed to argue No Are we supposed to dispute because he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said along the lines
of these words, earlier nations nations before us they used to dispute they used to argue and they went astray May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us oil, whatever I will try to impart to your in Sharma who to Allah is from the teachings of our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and from the noble Koran. So I'll call the otherwise a Taka do pre determination is divided into five, pre determination is divided into five, primarily number one, we have a taco D rule as number one, we have a taco deal as a D, and this My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. This is the pre determination that has been written many, many eons before the creation of mankind and this has been
sealed off in the love of God in my form in the preserved tablet. Hadith is in Achmad in the Muslim Imam Achmad. And likewise in the book of Imam Abu Dawood Rahim Allah and this particular Hadith has been clubbed So hey, by Eman al Al Bundy Rahim Allah rabada even assignment are the long line movie states that also the one beside the Long Island wa sallam is reported to have said and the narration goes along the lines of these words, that when a lost behind the who a dial up created the column when a loss of behind them who created the pen, Allah the Almighty commanded the pen Allah the Almighty or
The pen to write Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded the pen, right? The pen asks Allah subhanahu Adela yarrabah mother to Allah oh my lord What am I to write? What am I to write? Then Allah subhanahu wa tada commands the pen to marco de Raku Li chez Li, yo milaca Yama write down the pre determinations of every single thing. Until the day of Yama write down every single thing Allahu Akbar, and in accordance with the command of a lawsuit the high number was eila. The pen wrote down every single thing that has occurred that is occurring that will occur in the preserve tablet in the local mfu me standing on this member it has been written in the corner me dressing these clouds it
has been written in the corner all of you seated in the master has been written in the corridor for y'all to choose and come to Java MST has been written with the Father for me to choose this topic and talk on this topic has been written in the corner for you the clothes that you are wearing, the choice of your clothes today has been written in the corridor, every single thing the pen wrote it down until the day of Korea.
This is the primary
type of attack are the three distinct predestination predetermination, a taco de Li
and this is from the articles of faith to in the very famous Hadith, which is recorded in many books of Hadith very authentic hadith of gibreel.
When gibril Allahu Salatu was Salam went to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Yeah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for me and he man, tell me about the man Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then answers and took me Nabila mala ekati wakatobi he was truly he well, yo Mila here.
You're supposed to believe in Allah believe in the angels of Allah, the books of Allah, the messengers of Allah the last day and you have to believe in order you have to believe in the Divine Decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The pre determination of Allah subhana wa Taala that good and evil is from it. It is from the articles of faith if you refuse of if we reject the author of Allah subhanahu wa taala. We cannot call ourselves believers May Allah subhanahu wa taala fill our hearts with strong Eman.
The second type of a duck to the The second type from the makadi number one is a type of deal as a Lea. The second type is a taco de yo millimeter
a taco de yo mil Misha and this My dear brothers in Islam This was when Allah subhana wa tada created Adam Allahu Salatu was Salam. This was that day when Allah behind them who was the Allah created Adam Alinea salat wa salam, and Allah the Almighty placed his right hand on the back of Adam, Allah is Salatu was Salam. And when we say right hand, it is not the hand that we think Lisa cometh Lee Shea, there is nothing equal to alas behind them who are to Allah because Allah the Almighty state, so we confirm it. It is, it is what Allah subhanho wa Taala means it to be we do not know what it means Allahu Akbar, Allah the Almighty places his right hand on Adam alayhis salaam wa
salam, and then the offspring of other Mali salat wa salam come out and it is visible to other Malema salatu wa salam and Allah the Almighty then states a lot the almighty then states, and just before this, that was when I was behind and who would either ask the souls unless to be Rob Bhiku is to be robbing whom am I not your law? Call who Bella and at that time, all of us, all of us may be respected elders and brothers in Islam. We all confirm and affirm that you're Allah You are our Lord. But perhaps we can't remember it just as how we can't remember what we did in our mother's wombs. And just as how when we cross on to the next world, even the life of this dunya will be like
a dream of the life of dystonia is so short, malice behind them was either opened the doors of goodness for us a lot the almighty places his right hand on other molecules. Salatu was Salam and ultimately Salatu was Salam could see his offspring. And then Allah subhana wa decrees that all of these offspring of yours they are the people of Jen. It has been decreed. They are the people they are from the people of Jenna. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala places his left hand to Sarah, the narration goes along the lines of these words if I'm not mistaken, and then Allah behind them who the island states to the offspring that come out then Allah subhanho wa Taala states that they are
they are designed for Johanna Mia last behind the board.
Allah save us all. All of them are going to the fire of Johanna. Then at that time a person was listening to a song of mine he said a long while ago seldom as a hobby really a long one. He asks it also the law he said a long while it was lm Yasuda law, the what is the use of doing good deeds, it has already been decreed that so and so is going to Jenna and so and so is going to Johanna, why should we strive to do good deeds Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam very beautifully clarifies that if a master behind them what Allah has decreed and individual to go to Jenna are lost behind and what Allah will use that individual to do good deeds. If you are doing good deeds, they know for
a fact that Allah Subhana Allah is using you to get you to Jannah above. And on the other hand, if a person has been decreed for the fire of Allah subhanho wa Taala will use him to do evil things resulting in him going to agenda so it is upon us to strive. It is upon us to strive to do good deeds.
I'm running out of time. Some people have this misconception about the product. There are two groups that went astray. One is algebra Riga, and the other is El Kataria, Algeria, you know, these are two extremes in terms of the quarter of a loss behind them for the island, Algeria, they came about with a claim saying that we are forced, we have no free will. We have no free will. We are being forced by the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala we are under duress and we are forced by the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala We have no choice we have no free will. We are like feathers in the wind. Wherever the wind blows us. We have to go Allahu Akbar, this sect were deviant and they went astray.
The other group the other extreme alcove area, they stated that we have complete free will. We have the power completely lost behind and who are the either nor the decree of Allah subhanahu wa taala plays any part in our lives of two extremes. One extreme saying that we don't have any choice at all. And the other extreme, saying we have all power and the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala does not affect us. Both groups were deviant and both went astray. They are hallucinate our drama, our side of una sala a pious predecessors, they strike a beautiful balance in between these two groups where they state many respected elders and brothers in Islam. The decree of Allah subhana wa Taala
applies when every single thing even our actions are the creations of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But yet we have the power of choice we have free will allows behind them with Allah states in the Quran as Haku mirabegron for mansha for human woman Sha filioque. For the truth is from Allah subhanho wa Taala he who wishes can deny it, he wishes can accept it. So lots of behind the hood Allah has given us a certain power of choice where we can decide and also some things are above our power where we have no choice in regard to it. Say for example, say for example, time of Juma the time of Juma, say 12 o'clock you're getting ready at home. Now you have the choice to decide Shall I go to the masjid?
Or shall I head over to the cinema and watch a movie, you have the choice there, you have the choice. If you take the route towards good if you come to the masjid, if you sit in Juma, then your destiny take shape accordingly. If you choose the other path, the other path towards evil, then your destiny will take you that way. But you have the power of choice. And many people confuse pre destiny predetermination with the knowledge of lost behind and the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala encompasses everything so much to the extent that Allah even knows what you are going to choose. That is in regard to the knowledge of Allah behind every word Allah, Allah the Almighty
knows what choice you're going to take at every junction we take so many choices in the morning when we get up when we go in front of the mirror, what color shirt Am I going to wear? What color tie Am I going to wear? What color trousers Am I going to wear? Am I going to go to work by car? Or perhaps Should I take the bus? Or should I take the train? Should I come off early? Should I take my family out? Should I take a vacation Should I switch my jobs? We take so many decisions and all of these decisions we have the power to take them. But remember, even those choices are decreed by Allah subhanho wa Taala and they are also in the knowledge of of also behind them what Allah basically the
core, the principle, the principle that we all have to understand my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam is that man's Free Will man's Free Will
is a manifestation of a laws absolute will. Man's free will is a manifestation of a laws absolute will. This is something that we have to inculcate in our minds quickly moving on to the final two types of taco deer. The next media respected elders and brothers in Islam is a tougher the year and hopefully we have the next type of tougher the era taco deal Holly
which is a taco deer that take this takes place annually, annually and that is the taco deal. We are concerned with the taco deal which is written on Layla through quarter on the ninth of power on the Night of Decree, then that is well lost behind them. What are the state fee how you Prabhu kulu ambreen Hakeem, it is a night in which are lost behind them what Allah decrees many things or every single thing about the other type is a taco de la Marie, and that is in regard to a life of an individual. The Hadees
is reported to have said that the creation of an individual of a human being
takes place for 40 days in the womb of his mother inhalation goes along the lines of these words, and allows the device to belong Weiland whatsoever also states in another Heidi, that for every room, an angel is appointed Allahu Akbar, for every room, whether the mother of the child be a Muslim or a disbeliever. A calf era, an angel is appointed for every single room. And as we all know, the process of the child growing it starts off as a loofa as a mixture of sperm NOFA the angel looks at a loss behind them what Allah Allah it is no two for now. And then when it goes on to become a Ida, a blood clot of blood then that to the angel cries out to a loss behind him was Allah
and then it becomes a mogul. It becomes a lump of flesh. And then again, the angel tries out to almost behind the Buddha Allah and then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam coming to the main Howdy, Allah, the Almighty at that point, sends down an angel, the angel comes down and writes down four things, four things are written on that particular child, number one in regard to his risk in regard to his risk, in other words, how much he will earn, however, much we strive and we run many respected elders and brothers in Islam, what is decreed will come to us, that doesn't mean that you have to sit at home sleep and say, now you know, I'm going to rely on the father of a mouse behind
him more than Allah, let me just chill, the money will fall from the sky, that is not going to happen. We have to take hold of all of the above, we have to use all of the above as much as possible. And then the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala works in accordance. So number one in regard to Israel, number two, in regard to his lifespan, how long is he going to live on this earth that is also written at that moment? And then his deeds, whether they're going to be good deeds or evil deeds? And then finally, is he going to be a wretched individual? Or is he going to be a fortunate individual Allahu Akbar, even that is written at that moment, many respected elders and
brothers in Islam. So having said that, the final Dr. De Yomi, which takes place daily which takes place daily, Allah subhanho wa Taala stating the noble for iron. Yes, Allah will Memphis Mr. watty will Kula Yeoman Waukesha and that whoever is within the heavens and the earth, they ask Allah Subhana Allah as each and every day of our subhanho wa Taala brings about a matter now to read off. My beloved Sheriff shuffle is not able to take me out of him alone. He states in his book it that he wants to do that in regard to these five types of dukkha the the number one taco de taco de aza Li It is based on the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And no change, no change at all can be
brought about in that taco deal that is permanent, the pins have been lifted and the pages have dried Allahu Akbar. But in relation to the other types of Takada that we mentioned, a taco the rule yummy a taco the rule Holly, a taco de la ohmori, a taco the rule, the other four types that I mentioned, all of those may be respected elders and brothers in Islam can be changed to through the law, and so many other things but I don't have the time to touch those can be changed and that can be changed in accordance the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But bear in mind, even that change that takes place has already been recorded in the primary deal as really amazing indeed amazing.
This just has to fill our hearts with the greatness of our Creator, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. I wrap off by stating that let us try our level best. Those who live in Long Island was seldom is reported to have said that the later two quarter will be in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, and then the supervisor Allahu alayhi wa sallam into step ahead another narration and said search for it in the odd Knights in the odd knights, ie the 21st, the 23rd, the 25th, the 27th the 29th just five Knights many respected elders and brothers in Islam, if we secure a little further, it is
is better than 1000 months at three years and four months of Escobar, how foolish will we be if we sleep in those nights and misled little further? Why can't we stay up for five nights for the sake of our beloved maker securing great rewards and mighty respected elders and brothers in Islam. As we all know, if we stay up that night and we fulfill the rights of this month of Ramadan, all of our sins will be forgiven and it will be as if we are given a new slate, a new slate. So let us use that new slate by starting off with beautiful good deeds of of beautiful acts of philanthropy, beautiful acts of charity where we get close to Allah subhanho wa Taala there are many opportunities around us
today there are many things happening can help many people and even I was asked to state this that in domestic two, they are collecting funds for the staff members and you should think that you know, the staff members they're doing so much for this particular message or other massage to be amongst the the people who call out the Adhan and even the people who clean the message, etc. They are doing so much they are doing so much we come to the message that at times we enjoy Dharavi. We enjoy Dharavi, but we don't know how much of trouble that half is all for an goes through from morning revising the lesson preparing further away. So let us help them out. Let us dig deep into our
pockets and help them out and I think collections are being done in the front after Salatu Juma try your level best and help them with your soda and your other gifts and hadiya May Allah subhanho wa Taala reward all of your many the almighty forgive our sins and mainly accept our good deeds. May he accept our fast many accept this month of Ramadan from us and mainly the almighty bless us all with the opportunity to attain the night of power to attain Laila to look further and May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless us indeed many opened the doors of goodness for us and may alleviate the sufferings the Muslim Ummah is going through many alleviate the sufferings of our brethren in Gaza may
alleviate the sufferings the Muslim Ummah is going through, many reward them many accept the Shahada from them and maybe grant them the highest stations in gender. May He filled the hearts of the whole Muslim Ummah with strong unwavering Eman and patience to go through the trials of the latter stages so that we meet Allah subhanahu wa tada in a state that we are pleased with Allah the Almighty and Allah the Almighty is pleased with us. I mean, what are ya Anil hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen
