You know many people talked about last night and how special it was. And in fact, you look around the world today and the way the sun rose rayless and Medina and other places the 27th night and the probability and you say subhanallah. It felt like such a beautiful night.

00:00:18--> 00:00:27

But I want you to for a moment, think about a very important concept about Leila Takada that I think we have missed in our generation.

00:00:29--> 00:01:11

We have this idea whether we say it out loud, or whether it shows in our practice, that in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, it's later to Qatar or bust. It was either later to Qatar or it was just another night. And I want to actually shatter that first and foremost from a Quranic perspective, and from the Sunnah of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam for a moment, when you look at these last 10 Nights, firstly, in the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even when they knew that they had caught later to Qatar, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Companions continued, with the nights that followed that night and the Hadith of the 23rd Night being the 23rd

00:01:11--> 00:01:57

night one night, and the Hadith that we mentioned, from obaidul, the Allahu taala, and they continued onwards with the rest of the nights as well, with full dedication, the even nights and the odd nights. Now, I want you to just remember this very simple formula Laylatul Qadr is the best night of the year. Without any doubts without any comparison. After Laylatul Qadr the best nights of the year are the rest of the 10 Nights, without any exception. After Laylatul Qadr the best nights to worship Allah subhanaw taala and to exert yourself, the nights in which there is more forgiveness, the nights in which there's more acceptance than any other point of the year are the

00:01:57--> 00:02:09

rest of the nights and it is so easy for us to miss them. So for example, the even nights come you go well, you know, we know it's in the odd nights. That's true, but you're in the best batch of nights of the entire year.

00:02:10--> 00:02:24

And you don't even know if it's an odd night. Now from the Quran. Subhan Allah when Allah azza wa jal says well, February while Al and ash, ALLAH SubhanA wa swears by legit and then he swears by 10 Nights, what are they at and are speaking about?

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

How many of you think they're talking about the last 10 nights of Ramadan?

00:02:31--> 00:02:35

I'm doing hands raised tonight. How many of you think they're talking about the first 10 days of the hijab?

00:02:36--> 00:02:42

Alright, so we have Stella from Austin Ranieri, we have a difference of opinion amongst the more fustian on a VRC

00:02:43--> 00:03:29

some of the scholars said Allah is swearing by the last two nights of Ramadan, some of them said Allah is swearing by the first 10 days of the hedge. Some of the scholars said it's actually both because Allah did not say when they lash the 10 days, Allah said while Ayane and os 10 days, so it technically could apply to two sets of 10. So some of the scholars said In fact, the best 10 days of the year, or the 10 days of the Hijjah the best 10 nights of the year, or the 10 nights of Ramadan. The best 10 days or the first 10 days of the Hijjah the best 10 nights of the year are the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Now whether or not that TEF see it applies to it or not. I just wanted to give

00:03:29--> 00:04:11

you the short reminder that after Laylat al Qadr, there are no nights of the year that are better than these nights for your Salah, for your dua for your crying for your sadaqa for your good deeds, and that's why the prophets lie some did not sleep any of these 10 nights or Nine Nights if it becomes a 29 day Ramadan. So take advantage of every single one of these nights and shift that paradigm it's not a little feather or bust. It's the best 10 nights of the year. And if I observe all of them, then I will catch up a little bit in the night Allah may Allah allow us to observe later to Qatar, and may Allah allow us to honor all of these last two nights and may Allah subhanaw

00:04:11--> 00:04:24

taala allow us to be amongst those that are forgiven the Sorbonne and that are counted amongst counted amongst the redeemed souls from hellfire. And those who are guaranteed paradise Allah whom I mean just darken a little hiatus and I want to come out Sonica
