Just as he has gathered us here today on the day with Gemma, may Allah subhanho wa Taala gather as with our families in Jeddah for those that Allah in the companionship of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his Sahaba May Allah subhanho wa Taala make our last among our best Armelle We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to help us and grant us the ability to witness the month of Ramadan. I mean Yarrabah I mean, brothers and sisters, it is very obvious that as we get closer to the month of Ramadan, we began to hear hot buzz reminding us about the month of Ramadan, the value of the month of Ramadan and SubhanAllah. I want to begin by saying that even a yam Rahmatullah Allah He has a

00:05:39--> 00:06:24

very beautiful saying he says, he begins his quote by saying by Allah, He swears upon Allah subhana what to Allah. And he says that if the dead were to were asked that they will be granted one wish, they would wish that they could come and spend one day and witness one day of the month of Ramadan, not the entire month of Ramadan, one day of the month of Ramadan. This in itself, this quote in a game should give us the realization that the month of Ramadan is a very valuable month, it is a month where we can make our akhira. And if we don't spend it correctly, we can either break our Ark era, this is a month of spirituality. This is where we began to talk about Ramadan to help us gain

00:06:24--> 00:07:08

the value of Ramadan. And just to give us another demonstration of how beautiful and how valuable Ramadan is. I want to share with you the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because he saw a dream. And in this dream, what he saw was that there were two people he initially you saw these two people becoming Muslim at the same time, one of them passed away while fighting for the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the other one passed away. One year later, he died of a natural death. This person saw a dream that a person who died one year later, was admitted into Jannah prior to the Mujahid, prior to the person

00:07:08--> 00:07:50

who lost his life in the Cause of Allah subhanho wa taala. And this was, of course, very shocking to him. Because obviously, when we hear about a person who loses their life, as we know that before their blood touches the ground, they're granted Jana, so this man was clearly in the state of shock. He approaches us through law. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and he asked the Prophet Allah you some about this curiosity of is and what did the Prophet said Allahu Allah. He was some telling him, he says that, don't you realize that the person who passed away one year later, he has one more year of prayers, more than the person who passed away in jihad, and the person does not only this person

00:07:50--> 00:08:36

does he have prayers, but he has an additional month of Ramadan. Look at this very important quote of the Prophet Salam. He says he has an additional month of Ramadan above the other person. So why did he of course that's why he went into Jannah This in itself teaches us that every single moment of Ramadan is very very precious. But in order the only way we will be able to spend Ramadan the correct way is if we go into Ramadan, while we are prepared, if we are under this theory or this mindset that let Ramadan come and then I will prepare and then I will spend Ramadan the correct way that is not possible. This is why we go back and we study what our alumni have said. And I go back

00:08:36--> 00:09:24

again to am Rahmatullah on a in a very well known saying of his and I'm sure you've heard this before, the as Ramadan is coming. The two months prior to Ramadan is Rajab in Shaba. And Raja is the month where we plant the seed, the month of Shabbat is when we water that seed and hence when that seed sprouts and it grows, then we are able to bear the fruits of that tree in the month of Ramadan. I want to at this time, take a little time and focus on this quote of even a human Rahmatullah lay because when these orlimar, they will speak they had a lot of wisdom and their sayings and in their quotes, and this quote of able to pay him is indeed very deep. It is quite deep. If you go into it

00:09:24--> 00:10:00

and try to understand it. Let's think about it for a moment when he says Raja is the month where you plant the seed. When you want to grow a plant you have there is a foundation of that plant, there is a foundation to that tree and that begins with a single seed. When you put the seed into the ground. That is the very first step. That's you developing the foundation for that tree. When you observe the month of Rajab in itself. The month of Ramadan is the month to lay down the foundation for the coming month of Ramadan. Even that is why some are mad they are they you know they say this in a very

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

A profound way that the month of Rajab, of course, there's a lot of speculation from a sealer perspective, that when did it saw what a mirage take place. But let's just say we go with the theory at this point that it saw what a mirage took place in Rajab.

00:10:14--> 00:10:52

This was the month where Allah subhanho wa Taala gave five times daily prayers told us Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam, the five times daily prayers are the foundation to all the other prayers. A person who does not have the five times daily prayers, they're going to be weak and all their other prayers, they're going to be weak in their sunnah. They're going to be weak in their new often, there'll be weak in the winter and so forth, because they are weak at their foundation. Once again, the month of Rajab is the month where we lay down the foundation. Likewise, the month of Rajab is one of the asuran Haoran is one of the sacred months. And when we talk about the sacred

00:10:52--> 00:11:34

months, we learn that the people long time ago they would put down their their arsenal, they will put down their weapons, and they will not fight with each other, all fighting and wars will cease in the month of Rajab. So think about this for a moment, if we consider the month of Rajab as the month of foundation, then this is truly a foundational month, that where we began to hold back our grudges. The month of Ramadan is coming. And how often do we see that right in the month of Siobhan shaytaan is working so hard to separate the hearts from each other before Ramadan starts? Does that is why if you think about it from from a very interesting perspective, the month of Rajab is the

00:11:34--> 00:12:18

month of foundation, we're in that month two, we begin to hold back our grudges. We began to you know, be nice with each other, we remove our hatred for one another, then comes the month of Siobhan and even a Hume says the month of Siobhan is when you water that seed, think about it for a moment, you don't consistently plant a seed, you plant a seed only one time, but then you have to water it consistently. You cannot just plant a seed and let it go. And you cannot just water it one time and let it go and expect it to grow. But you have to constantly monitor that plant and constantly monitor that seed. And not only that, but you have to constantly water that plant. So hence the

00:12:18--> 00:12:58

month of Siobhan is the month to grow stability. And this is why very beautifully we find in the spirit of Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was setting them based on many a hadith that as month the month of Shaban would roll around in the month of Shabbat in itself Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would fast abundantly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would fast consecutive days in the month of Shaban and there are many a hadith or somebody that will say that he would fast for one or for half of the month, and then the second half of the month, he would he would begin to prepare for the month of Ramadan, and he would reserve his physical capacity for the month of

00:12:58--> 00:13:39

Ramadan. And not only that, but there are some who say even fasted, some some say that he'd been fasted the entire month. Some Sahaba said that the Prophet saw some would fast so persistently, that we thought that he will never end his fasting and there were times when he would not fast and we thought that he would never ever fast and so forth. The point is, the month of Shaban is the month of gaining persistence, it is the month to gain consistency. So if a person begins for the month of Rajab, and they began to read Quran, they began to establish their prayers, they began to become punctual about their prayers. They began to fast on the three white days Monday and Thursday and so

00:13:39--> 00:14:22

forth. Then when the month of Shaban comes, they gain stability so that when you gain stability, when the month of Ramadan comes, you are fully prepared for the month of Ramadan. It takes time to build a foundation, it takes time to gain stability. And often what we find is we're trying to build a foundation we're trying to gain stability and benefit all in the month of Ramadan. And that is why for the most part, because we are not prepared for Ramadan, that is why we're not able to spend a meaningful Ramadan and Ramadan is one beautiful month, one special month that it has so much power that can change any person a person's life. It can change their o'clock it can change their

00:14:22--> 00:14:59

perspective of life, it can change their relationship and their to unlock with Allah subhanho wa taala. But think about it, how many of them have ons have you and I have observed, but our clock continues to be the same. Our o'clock our deficiencies in o'clock, our deficiencies in arriba. They continue to be the same. That is the reason why is because we're not fully prepared for the month of Ramadan. How often we find in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says in certain nests that he's found. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says there Luca shadow in the month of Shaban is the month where more

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

Most people you're fooling Nasser Andrew, most people are unaware there. They are in the state of Gulf law regarding this month, and this month exist, and it lies between the month of Rajab and the month of Ramadan. This is the quote of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And he goes on to say on a histogram, who was shot one through referral fee Hill Armel illa Billah Al Amin, fo hippo and your family were under saw him, why would the providing some fast so much in the month of Siobhan because he said this is the month where the Armand are presented before Allah subhanho wa taala. And I want my Arma to be presented in the state that I am fasting. However, when we see our situation

00:15:44--> 00:16:24

right now, where we are more obsessed about is making sure that our pantries are filled up making sure that we've cooked all the different foods before the month of Ramadan comes, this is our preparation today, that was their preparation and this is their this is our preparation. Clearly we see that the difference in hence in our Ramadan. And therefore I come to the next subject, which is the month of Siobhan and the virtues of under Siobhan and especially when we talk about their mother, Siobhan often people ask is What do we believe in when it comes to the 15th Night of Siobhan and I want to just clarify some things about this. And I want to approach it in a very balanced

00:16:24--> 00:17:07

manner. There are some people who completely negate the idea altogether, there is another extreme that go beyond and they may even do some die. I'm here to just provide a very balanced approach to this night because this night is coming and therefore we find that there are many a hadith in regards to this. However majority of those are Hadith Hear me out majority of those are Hadith are weak, no doubt. But according to our Alama and appointed Asuna Hadith, there is a concept that when you have many weak a hadith that talks about a similar concept, and when they are brought together, the concept becomes an acceptable one. Hence we find many scholars of the past such as email

00:17:07--> 00:17:08


00:17:09--> 00:17:57

In my humble humble email even a major imam of poverty, Imam Shafi Omar Omar Abdullah Abdullah Aziz, many of them have talked about that this 15 night, the night or the 15th of Shaban is an auspicious night Imam taka using a super key, a great scholar a shot for you scholar he says he in fact refers this night with many names such as Leila to textfields de Loup, later Tulou Baraka Leila Tuberosa, and many others. We also find a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in hola hola Pollio fi Laylat Innisfree min. Shaban for yo phenyl deja Mira Halevi in early Muchnick in Omu Shahan. This is mentioned even though some scholars have classified this hadith as we even know her

00:17:57--> 00:18:40

but even huband has classified this hadith as a sahih Hadith and which means that Allah subhanho wa Taala he looks at his creation in the middle of the night in the middle of Shabbat the night that lies in a month of shot in the middle of Shabbat and he forgives all of his creations except for those who commit ship with Allah subhanho wa Taala and those who harbor immunity and hatred in the heart. So what our alumni have said in fact, even or even Amara the Allah who I know he says that there are five nights when do eyes are not rejected? There are five nights when do eyes are not rejected? This is the code of Ebola or the Allahu Taala on Houma. He says that is the night of Juma

00:18:40--> 00:19:20

the night the first night of Rajab, the 15th Night of Shaban and the night before Eden aloha in April 5. Once again, this is the code of Ibn Ahmad Radi Allahu taala. And we find Omar Abdullah Abdullah Aziz Ahmed Allah Allah doing his Khilafah time when he was sent letters out to all the different governors he would tell them about this particular night. So I want to clarify exactly that what we find from majority of our alumni and so forth is after they have looked at the Hadith and after they have studied our deen our Sharia, they are saying that yes, this is a night where you can exert yourself to Allah subhanho wa Taala but I want to make it very clear. There is no special

00:19:20--> 00:19:59

prayer on this night. If you want to pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala is a standard prayer is a standard prayer. There is no special fasting that belongs to the 15th day of Shaban a person who's under this assumption that I will not fast and I will just exclusively fast on this day of Shabaan on the 15th day of Shaban because there is a special reward associated with this. This is a wrong concept to begin with. And likewise there is no special act of worship on this night. There is no special prayer on this night there is no special dua. What our alumni have taught us is that you engage in everybody what are the

00:20:00--> 00:20:37

might have taught us is that you engage in the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala for forgiveness and if a person says I want to fast, because I want to fast on the 15th Shaban, you can fast under this assumption that the Prophet saw some he would fast and Siobhan not because there's a special reward on this day, but because we find that Rasulullah sallallahu Sena, would fast in the month of Shabbat. We find from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he would fast the three white days, the 13th, the 14th, the 15th you can fast on that day thinking that I'm fasting because the primarily Sun would fast, but there is no exclusive reward

00:20:37--> 00:21:14

for fasting on that day. So this is a balanced approach to approach the 15 night a shaman once again, I conclude by saying that may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the Tofik to benefit from this month of Shabbat and once again, the month of Shabbat is not the month that where we waste this is the month where we do not engage and heedlessness and we are completely oblivious about the surrounding. This is the month that comes before the month of Rajab and it comes between Rajab and Ramadan, and this is a month that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he will hold very dearly and he will prepare he will use this month to prepare himself for Ramadan. So let's do the same

00:21:14--> 00:21:53

thing. Let's begin reading Quran Subhanallah and now that when I come to the masjid, I'm starting to see people sitting in the first row reading Quran coming here 1520 minutes before this is how you begin the spirit of Ramadan in the community. We come and night and we pray a lot and we can't we go home at that time at home whether in the middle of the night or before we go to sleep some am or some tahajjud This Is Us preparing ourselves for the month of Ramadan if you want to fast start fasting on Mondays and Thursdays just to get into the habit and the routine of fasting and preparation the only then inshallah our Ramadan will be a beneficial one I asked Allah subhanaw
