I hear murmurs. The answer might not be as simple as you think.
How much is later to call that worth?
1000 months wrong. Sorry, but
I don't mean to pick on you
more than 1000 months. This is a very important distinction in the Quran and I want to talk about inshallah tada for a moment that the court ant does not see Laila to pottery cuttlefish Aha. Later to pottery is like 1000 months rather it says highwomen and Fisher Hi, it is better than 1000 months and there is something profound about that in of itself. But I want to talk about bidding nine times. When we look at the prophets of Allah in line with some of them and his relationship with Allah and our blessing and good fortune of being from the oma of Rasulullah sallallahu it was something there are two things that were sort of lost a lot more to us than them always does on our
behalf. He always advocates for Allah Subhana was added to lessen our burden. And he always advocates for a loss of hundreds is to increase our blessing. This is Our Messengers a little off it was while he was alive in this world, he constantly petitions his Lord to make things easier for the oma yet more rewardable and on the day of judgment or civil masala long line he was someone will be walking next to the members of his ummah, looking at their mouths and looking at their skills petitioning on their behalf. What so for your complete cut off bootcamp for total ba and Allah will keep on giving you Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam until you are pleased. Every Nabhi every
prophet has an accepted do rasulillah slice on him said I have left mine until the day of judgment when he would fall in sujood when he would fall in prostration and advocate for us. And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went on the journey of an Islamic marriage and we know the conversation that took place between him and more Saudi his saddam when Mussolini said I'm told the Prophet slice on go back and ask Allah subhana wa tada for less for to fief for less. Let me ask you a question and this is very serious to just think about do you think it also last night someone he received the order for 50 Salah Do you think that the Prophet sly some thought to himself That's too
much. I mean, we know his about it, his thoughts was set up 50 prayers would have basically meant that we spend our entire day in Salah that we live our lives in prayer and that everything else figures itself out. But Moosa and he said I'm said your oma would not be able to handle it and the prophets lie some went back to Allah subhana wa tada on behalf of us on behalf of the oma he Allah make it less yeah Allah make it less yeah let make it less. Until when musante Islam told Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that five is even too much the prophets lie Some said now I feel sinus. He felt too shy to his salatu salam to go back to Allah and say a lot less than five and Subhana
Allah now you can leave alone of some level Zaha Allah does not burden a soul beyond its scope word bless that hamdulillah five prayers is not too much and hamdulillah it is not too much. But on top of that, what did Allah subhanaw taala say to the Prophet slice of them, that the reward of their five will be 15 the reward of their five will be 50 How does later to cutter come about? nom hasna bossy Rahim Allah tells us about our messenger sallallahu wasallam anytime Allah gives him the Prophet slice and I'm things how does how does that translate into giving to the oma said that Allah as though Joe gave the prophets license and kofa Allah gave the Prophet slice of them and coat the
abundance that particular River and the Prophet slice on wanted something for his own muscle. Allah gave him data to others. That's one thing, abundance for the oma as well. sallallahu wasallam on top of that, we know some specific details about how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam particularly asked Allah subhanaw taala for a gift that we are all looking for for the last two nights. And that is the unece of nomadic or the Allahu taala and who said that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw some of the previous nations. He was given some of the a lot of some of the news of the nations that came before
The Prophet slice alum understood that the Armada of people, the average lifespan of this nation is shorter than the average lifespan of those nations that came before. And the profit slice I'm sorry, our model Almighty, the average lifespan of my oma is what?
between 60 and 70 years old. That's the average lifespan of my oma. So when the Prophet size some saw that, what did he think of right away and I saw the Allahu tada and who said that he was distressed the lulla Harney, he was some of them, and Yabloko home, my bellava hero home minimum, that they would not have the opportunity to do the same deeds, that the other among the other nations had the ability to do. So Allah subhanaw taala gave him a little harder as a gift to the Prophet sly sometimes oma, later to know how to reclaim them Hiram and elfi shop and we know that this is not a Hadeeth they aren't narrations from Mujahid and others within the books of Tafseer
that the prophets like some saw a particular man who lived a whole life of doing good deeds on the profit slice of them wanted his own life to have the opportunity to reach that sold on some parents gave him later to cuddle a lifetime a three years however, the minimum the minimum is 1000 months how do we interpret a hadith is a hadith about the reward of Allah subhana wa tada we get as specific as possible in regards to the deeds that we are to do in order to observe
but then when we interpret the reward we interpret it in the most expensive manner possible and that is in our personal London Allah subhana wa tada our good expectation of Allah. So let me be very clear here, when there is any iron or any Hadith that mentions a reward from Allah subhanaw taala. The calculations that are done by the scholars are to see how can we fulfill the action that is being called to in that particular I are heavy, so what does it mean to observe late that's what does it mean to observe this? What does it mean to observe that and so you'll find they're gonna go through the pain, you know, the painful time and process of trying to derive the most specific
recommendations possible for these types of deeds. But then when they interpret the reward, you interpret it be Oh, sorry, and the most expensive manner possible because that's how we look to our Lord subhana wa tada and the Prophet slicin him said that when Allah rewards a good deed, the minimum is by 10. And then Allah subhana wa tada rewards it up to 700 up to whatever Allah subhanho wa Taala once.
So for some people, later to Qatar is not even 1000 months, it's 1000s of months.
For some people, the test of Ramadan is not even times 1000 it's times 1000s up to what Allah subhana wa tada decides to reward His servants with and that comes back to each and every single one of us, calling out to Allah Subhana Allah, you connect that hydronym and elfi Shahada better than 1000 months. Allah in the car for one, two hibel Alpha five one and one narration Allah them in the car for one, Kareem when to hibel alpha 510 Allah, you are an fo you are al Karim, you're generous. You mix the generosity or you pair the generosity with his forgiveness. What does that mean you are generous in your forgiveness. You are generous in your forgiveness. So not only do you overlook and
pardon, but you increase what comes after the partner. So you are generous on top of being forgiving. And so when you're calling upon your Lord, I know there are some very cool like statistics about 1000 months equals this many years equals this many nights equals this many minutes and then if you take the night and divided then that means each second is worth this each minute is worth that. That's great. But Allah's mercy is even more than that.
No infographic can encapsulate Allah's mercy. So we just do our part. And when we do our part we say Allah, now we leave it to you. And Oh Allah surprise us, surprise us with the increase. Because we know on the Day of Judgment, that the believer is blown away somehow not as afraid as the believer is on the Day of Judgment the believer is blown away by the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala once Allah subhanaw taala starts to reveal the mercy that he stored only for the Day of Judgment. How many mercies does Allah subhana wa tada have in total, Allah's limitless and mercy but Allah subhana wa tada has only given us one out of 100 of the mercy that is between us that we benefit from in this
life and when you start to see what those other things
Mercy's look like it's sort of like when they talk about dimensions in this life right? That we don't know what a five dimension six dimension seven dimension a dimension. They talk about these galaxies in these universes that have multiple dimensions that we've never heard of, we cannot even begin to comprehend the layers of Allah's mercy that starts to come out on the Day of Judgment for the one that sought it blows us away. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala in McAfee when Corinne went to hibbeler alpha 510 Allah let us not just be amongst those that observed a little harder, but let us gain the maximum reward of later to cover. Yeah, let us gain the maximum reward of the data to the
public. Yeah, Allah forgive us and have mercy on us. And pardon us for every single sin that we bring before data to other the ones that are public, the ones that are private, the ones that are major, the ones that are minor, the ones that we know and the ones that we did not even realize we committed Yeah, Allah wipe them all out. And yeah, Allah reward us with all of the good that has been promised, all of the good that has been offered, the good that we can comprehend and the good that we cannot even comprehend. And yet Allah grant us the best gift of being with our beloved ones to Lola, when he was said on the outlaws. He wanted Laila to cuddle for us as a gift and as you gave
mercy in response to that, yeah, Allah grant us the greatest gift of being his companions in general through those along I mean, all sudden, I'm also invited kind of you know, Muhammad Ali, he will talk to US Marines zachman fatale Samadhi. Combined Salonika
