Brothers and sisters, I'll keep it short but I want you to remember the five things that I'm going to share with you inshallah Tada. As we look out for data to cover now, Sunday night begins the pursuit, every single one of those nights has the potential to be the most consequential night of your life and so for 10 nights, Allah subhanho wa Taala will be looking out to his creation, and we ask Allah subhana wa jal that what he sees from us is pleasing to Him, Allah amin and the Prophet sallallahu. It was said I'm setting I'm promenade to cuddle, amen and what discipline or fear Allah who not academic in them behave whoever stands up whoever observes labor to cuddle with faith and
seeking the reward Allah will forgive them for all of their previous sins. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us amongst them love man, I mean, so five things their brothers and sisters I want you to carry with you in Charlottetown and to set your mind to from now as we get into these last 10 nights. Number one as we go into the last 10 nights and as we hope that we catch up a little further, remembering that the night starts at McRib, remembering that the night does not start at a shot but the night starts at mclubbe and some of the son of the mentioned that this is such an important point for us as we go into these precious nights. Because how many people at the time of
their breaking of the fast will lose out their Nathan pother before they pray a single record of total we before they even make it to sell out very sharp. Why? Because over if thought you might backbite you might gossip you might say something you should not be saying you might do something that is not pleasing to Allah subhana wa tada and even Kodama Rahim Allah tada and most of the people lose it in its early part of the night. May Allah subhana wa protect us most of the people lose it in the early part of its night. It could be one comment that's made at the dinner table. One comment on your way one joke that is told that should not be told in those nights and of course
should not be told at any part of the night. But it starts up Salah to the Muslim and when Allah subhanaw taala says Tata Jaffa General boumalne in Milan, dear, you're the owner of the home health and well Palmyra that they forsake their beds seeking Allah subhanho wa Taala is reward fighting with their size. Amen. Personal bossy Rahim Allah said this actually refers to the companions praying between method of inertia. And so remember to include everything from the event of mclubbe all the way to the other offenses as part of your data to the second thing, dear brothers and sisters, to make sure that we catch ERISA and fudger all 10 of those nights and days within jamara.
And if that jamara cannot be in a Masjid for those that are not able to then that Gemma is formed in some other way but to pray it in congregation, and we know that because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever prays Salaam in a shop in congregation, Allah subhana wa tada will write down for them the first half of the night in prayer and whoever prays a lot to budget in congregation in jamara, Allah will write down for them the second half of the night in prayer. And so to put that in context, just very logically, to pray three hours in the night but to miss budget for example, or to miss your a shot would not be more pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Pray them
in jamara sorry, didn't we'll see you on the Allahu tada and hookah men say the Asia men Laila to Father, Father be healthy, he minha merciful is Allah. He said whoever prays so lots of very sharp in congregation has taken their portion from later too. So keeping that and if it is your regular habit and you're unable to do so then Allah will have written it down for you anyway, but have the intention and shall Watch out for every night and day that you can to catch a shot and to catch fudger in gemera. And if you're unable to at that time, or if you sleep through one of them and it overcomes you and you pray at home, do not grieve Allah subhana wa tada writes down in accordance
with the intention. So that's the second thing not to miss a shot or budget in jamara in those nights, the third thing, what the prophet sallallahu wasallam said authentically that whoever prays pm with the mom until he finishes Allah will write down for him the entire night in prayer. Now they're gonna not differ as to what the quantity of that is. Does that mean for example, that if the mom comes at three o'clock am or a two o'clock am and prays for an hour, let's say from three to 345 and you pray with that single Gemma, that single group of people that single mom for that entire time, that counts as the entire night in prayer does that mean if you pray the first eight, or if
you pray, you know a group of rock out with one mm that that counts and be in the 90 Tada. We take the opinion
In Charlottetown, and that yes, to pray with any Mum, when there is an established prayer, from the beginning of their FTM until the end of their pm counts as the entire night of prayer. So try to be, you know, very careful to catch it. And if you can catch both of the prayers then do so but to at least pray one block of the night bit in the night, behind an Imam, throughout their entire portion of what they are to read that night. And if you can catch what's in with them, then do so. But
that is the third thing. Now I'll get to the ones that get a little bit more interesting and that require a little bit more thought than
we started off this month by talking about what the best ethical, what the best forms of remembrance in llama one are, what is the best do and later to call them? We all know the answer to that. But I want to, I want to build on that just a little bit in Charlottetown. This number four means keeping yourself busy endura and particularly the short dx. I'm going to mention the reason why
most people in here if not everyone already memorizes Allahumma in the Capital One to hibel Alpha for me. Oh Allah, you are the partner you love to pardon. So pardon. Most of us memorize that you're out we have been taught it at a very young age at hamdulillah when I saw the Allah and asked the Prophet slice of them, what do I actually make the Prophet size some did not give her a page that we would all be fumbling to try to find it and try to repeat it and get through the Arabic of it or no anyone can memorize this. And anyone can learn its meaning very quickly. That in of itself is the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala However, there is not saying build on that concept of the short,
comprehensive do as as you move around on Layla to cuddle even Subhana Allah even they said if you're on your way to relieve yourself and come back, keep the short drags on your tongue. Why? Because the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a habit, a habit in Allah America. The most beloved of the arts to Allah, the Most Beloved of supplications to Allah are the ones that are the most comprehensive. What do you say in the loft between a rock than the Amani and 100 s word the last round the fall off? You just keep repeating what Robin artina for dunya Hasina. bofill archeologia has worked in other banal as you're moving around, whatever you're doing, as you're
trying to think of what you want to do next. As you're immersed in your dad's sandwich in between your personal drops, use the short comprehensive gerace memorize from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu it was sent them and let them engage you throughout the entire night. The short of God the short forms of remembrance, and the short comprehensive drops from the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Finally your brothers and sisters number five. This is the most comprehensive way to understand later to corporate and it's very important. The narration about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam either death or natural shut down.
We'll hear later hallway pada Allahu Salalah Harney, he was certain that when the last 10 nights would come in the Prophet, slice alum would tighten up his waist belts, and he would give life to the night. He would enliven the night the whole night was alive. What a beautiful expression. The Night of the Prophet slicin was alive. And he would wake up his family he would make sure that his family also was participating in it was the last I saw them when he said do not turn your homes into graveyards. Assign a share of your salon to your homes, don't turn them into graves. Why? Because Vicodin gives life to the heart and it gives life to any space that we are in the mama Shafi rocking
a whole lot to Allah He has a very important reflection on this hadith. He says that when you look at the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, some of them prefer to spend the night in praying. Some of them prefer to spend the night in karate and Quran and the recitation of the Quran. Some of them prefer to spend the night in Europe. Some of them prefer to spend the night distributing their cell the thoughts each one of them had a regimen and they weren't all the same. Because the prophets lie sometimes description in this regard was simply give life to the night, all of the deeds that would give life to the night. And so every single Muslim is included in this
category that you have something to give life to every portion of the night and within that you diversify your good deeds and an easy way to remember this dear brothers and sisters, is that all of the good deeds that are preferred in LA Milan are even more preferred in the last two nights of Ramadan and and make sure there's a portion of each one of them in the last 10 nights. This is what Imam and now we get him a whole lot to either set.
He said that Tyler's habarana he said that our our scholars said What did you do? Must have must have mophie Shangri La Milan well financial Ella three of model exida and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the son of one he and the whole shotgun Sharif from Santa to fee he have Lalo mindvalley he said what the Allahu taala Anwar Hema hola that our scholar said that to be generous in Ramadan is highly recommended as we know from the Prophet slice Adam and Jude's the most broad definition of generosity, and he said specifically during the last 10 nights, because the best time to emulate the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is in the last two nights of Ramadan. So every
description you have of the Prophet, slice alum, if needed to follow the Prophet, slice them in those last two nights is the best way to worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, as it is to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala at any time, and the month is honored as a whole. And these last two nights are the most honored 10 nights of the month. And so Pamela we find a connection between particularly in that regard do and charity do and sadhaka to other to decree. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that there are two things that affect your Divine Decree, he mentioned that nothing changes the Divine Decree except for supplication except for dura, and he mentioned Salalah when he
was some that nothing extends the life of a person, except for a slob except for charity that would actually form an extension change the decree and extend a person's life. So you can find what then on later to cuddle what then on the Night of Decree right, to bring these types of deeds into our lives as well. So as you are there in sha Allah, tada as you are thinking about how do I fill these hours, diversify, keep going between these things and know that you are following the setup in some way. One of the companions has a knife that resembles the one that you do are you hope that your night resembles one of the Sahaba in the portions that you are assigning because they were all
different in that regard, but all of them were exerting themselves all 10 nights of Ramadan, giving life to the night in obedience to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and in seeking the pleasure of Allah. Lastly, the most simple form of advice, what is the point of dirty cough, if you're still connected to everybody and everything in arity cough, a person could be sitting in the masjid all night long would have their phone and still be checking groups and still be going on different apps, and still talking to people. And they are in less air decaf than a person who is sitting in their bedroom, but has put their phone to the side. I'm not talking about the technical specs of it, I'm
talking about the meaningful part of it. The whole point is seclusion. So even if you can't do anti caffeine, you know, obviously we have restrictions this year, in regards to how we would do it. Even if you can't physically do errante calf, do not leave room for yourself to get lost in something during the last 10 nights. So if I could take an oath in Juma I would from each and every single one of you, no social media, no WhatsApp, no text messages, no nothing except of course, if you're texting someone from your family, or something just to get something done. None of that during the last two nights when the time of mclubbe comes in, put it aside, I'm not going to check anything,
I'm not going to go to anything. Because Allah knows Allah knows that that one minute turns quickly into 30 minutes. And then that one conversation quickly turns into 10 say 10 since Be careful, cut it all off in the last two nights. But also last night, some of them went incomplete there decaf in the last 10 nights. Let's try to cut it all off and shut law and only maintain what is necessary, so that we are able to communicate with our family but they're not heated or communicate in ways that need to be communicated in Charlottetown. But cut it all off and don't leave even an inch of it to corrupt any one of those precious time nights remembers kennela later to the Qatar the night of
later to Qatar was lost because the prophets lie some came out and he saw two companions that were arguing. And Allah subhana wa Lorenzo just lifted it from the Prophet slice I'm in the companions because of two people that were arguing. Do not be that person, some kind of law where the angels are on their way to you and then you quickly do something and they leave you don't do that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to isolate our hearts seclude our hearts, our thoughts, our bodies, our tongues, everything from that which is displeasing to Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to engage in that which is pleasing to Allah Subhana Allah dear brothers and sisters, just like with
hedge, not off with our super dodgy data and hedge it's don't do anything to mess it up. Don't do anything to mess up.
Out of the same thing is true don't do anything to mess up your data. May Allah protect us from doing so. And may Allah allow us to exert ourselves and connect with him in a way that gives us a lifetime of good deeds and gives us a lifetime of consciousness and taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that we rise to the level of Exxon rise to the level of excellence be amongst his most pleasing servants along that I mean, that was tough, but he will accomplish that and muslimeen stuff will not hold off for looking at him to dinner Salatu was Salam or annato su de la early he was gonna be here woman Wilder, a lot more current mininova more minutes well, Misty, meanwhile Muslim
