We begin by praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and bearing witness that none has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him Subhana and we asked him to send his peace and blessings upon His Messenger, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family, his companions and those that follow until the day of judgment, and we

00:01:46--> 00:02:29

asked a lot to make us amongst them along I mean, your brothers and sisters, I will keep it very short today in Charlottetown, and hopefully sweet as well. That and hamdulillah we have among us now we are we have now reached the last 10 nights of Ramadan, and we are in these last few nights, and tonight being the 27th night in particular, which obviously has a very high chance of being laid to Qatar. And of course beyond that the 29th night and Subhanallah here we are as Ramadan is fleeting away from us and many people will end Ramadan before Ramadan actually ends and that is that after the 27th night, they'll kind of take it easy for the rest of the month or after the 29th night if

00:02:29--> 00:03:09

there's a 30th night which is likely this year. They'll take it easy for that last night for those last few moments even as this this beloved guest of ours is here that wipes out our sins perpetually. Every moment every test beer is so precious in this month of Ramadan, as the majority are in Allah to Allah narrates that one test beer once upon Allah, and Ramadan is equal to 1000 outside of the month of Ramadan. So every last second of this month is precious to us. But obviously looking particularly to the night that we have ahead of ahead of us, and half of them in Raja Rai malata. Anna shares with us a beautiful reflection for us to really think deeply about, which is

00:03:09--> 00:03:49

that it's from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he placed Laila to Qatar in the last 10 nights of Ramadan as opposed to the first 10 nights of Ramadan. Had this been a pre Ramadan hookah, we would have been talking about the importance of fasting Siobhan, why because as he said, Rahim Allah to Allah, it removes the physical hardship, the physical difficulty of fasting so that you can only bear the fruit of it and taste the sweetness of it once Ramadan comes in. However, before Ramadan and Siobhan Shabbat is not a month of total we it's not a month of kiama LED it's not a month where we get used to standing up in prayer all night, but the first 20 days of Ramadan to the

00:03:49--> 00:04:31

last two the last 10 days of Ramadan are what Shabbat is to Ramadan, so that the first 20 nights of standing up in prayer and making your and getting accustomed to spending your entire night worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala for these first 20 nights is just like fasting shut down for Ramadan. Because now as you come to these last 10 nights and particularly now, the 27th night tonight We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it later to look at that for us Lama I mean, particularly now this last, these last few nights of Ramadan, you've already gotten accustomed to total we you already know what it's like to stand up in prayer for an hour or two. You've already

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

somewhat adjusted your sleep schedule, if not entirely adjusted your sleep schedule. So can you hear later it his salatu salam to give life to the night to the entire night is not something that is entirely difficult for us you've become accustomed to coming to the masjid and the profit slice and I'm sad whoever prays there a shot and fudge in JAMA. It is as if he has prayed the entire night. You've already practiced for this moment. Allah subhanho wa Taala puts you in mandatory practice. Your body has been trained

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

For the standing that comes tonight, and your tongue has gotten maybe a little bit more accustomed to your app, you've gotten yourself back into the habit of Wichard. Hopefully, you know how to do what you need to do tonight. The thing is, what are you going to do tonight? And what are you going to ask Allah subhanaw taala for, and this is perhaps one of the most beautiful lessons that we have from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that he shall be allowed to ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if I see those 10 nights, and if I have a feeling that it's later to call that if I'm in the zone, and I feel like it may be later to cuddle, what's the deal that I

00:05:37--> 00:06:17

should make? And the profit slice and I'm set Aloma in a careful one to help with alpha five for Omni, Oh Allah, you are the one who pardons you love to pardon. So pardon me, so forgive me. You love to forgive Oh Allah, so forgive me. And in these last few weeks, we have felt the forgiveness of Allah subhana wa tada and the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala descending upon us. We have been in the companionship of the angels for these last few weeks as they have descended upon this Masjid, and massages around the world, and places around the world. We've already accustomed are accustomed ourselves to the Quran. Now we prepare ourselves for

00:06:18--> 00:06:59

what are we going to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala when we have these precious moments with him, first of all, tonight is a blessed night, not just for it being the 27th night but because it's the day of Friday, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned to us that there is an hour on the day of Friday, where your ads are answered where our supplications are answered, and that's the last hour before so lots of Muslims so you already have started to the job. You should start preparing yourself from the hour before mclubbe tonight inshallah tada with your job, you already have the hour of acceptance, and then recognize this, that Allah subhanho wa Taala have the means of him

00:06:59--> 00:07:40

responding to a person supplication are their Eva dots are the acts of worship that they've brought to that there so you have now your Ramadan to present to a loss of Hannah horchata as a pretext as a prerequisite to what you're going to ask him for. subhanho wa Taala but now when you have those moments, what will you ask him for? Allah subhana wa tada says, he has your Roku kulu Imran Hakeem that on the night of later to Qatar all of the all of the matters of the year to come are ordained by him subhanho wa Taala and particularly even Ambassador the allot of time who mentioned the names of the people that are going to Hajj so you really want to go to Hajj this year, make dua to Allah

00:07:40--> 00:08:19

subhana wa tada if you've been kind of, you know, faulty with your intention or you've been mediocre and you're asking Allah Subhana Allah to allow you to go to Hajj tonight is a night and the last few nights are nights where you ask Allah Subhana Allah Oh Allah ease the path of Hajj for me allow me to do Hajj because in these last 10 nights and we hope inshallah tada tonight the names of the adjudge will be written for the year for this coming year. You have opportunity to ask Allah subhana wa tada for anything What will you bring to the table and the most beautiful thing that we take from the Hadith of the Prophet sly sometimes shuttle the Allahu Allah is that he told her to ask for

00:08:19--> 00:09:00

something that is not of this world, but something that is far more precious than that which is contained in this world. He told me he said to ask for pardon. Because if you ask for Apple and you are granted that then you are guaranteed genda then you are already guaranteed paradise that comes in the pockets of Allah subhanaw taala forgiving you and if you ask Allah Subhana hoods Allah for his effort, for his pardon, and for his forgiveness, then when you attain that and when you enter into paradise or when you show up on the day of judgment and you found that Allah has forgiven you, every hardship in this world will suddenly pale into complete irrelevance. It will not even be a

00:09:00--> 00:09:44

sore memory for you anymore. Because you've attained the most the most blessed thing that you could possibly get from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so tonight, Allah subhanho wa Taala asks you What's your ask? What are you asking me for? Na, na, what are these people want that have gathered in the messages? What are these people want that have lit up their houses with prayer? What do they want from me tonight? And the prophets lie Selim says 100 euro Eve Allah, Metro her, the most beloved of supplications to Allah are the ones that are the most comprehensive. And he said in another Hadith, Allah His Salatu was Salam that the most beloved of their eyes to alar, the ones that come from the

00:09:44--> 00:09:50

heart, the ones that are heartfelt. You combine these things together and you prepare yourself for your day.

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

Prepare yourself for tonight. What am I going to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala What am I going to busy myself with? And how can I connect my heart from

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

Now until tonight, how can I connect my heart with a loss of Hannah hoods Allah so that I can feel his presence when I supplicate tonight because you're out will have so much more quality. If throughout the day, you've been engaged in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala and putting your heart in his presence of Hana horchata. So that tonight, when you start making those two hours and the nights to follow when you start making those two hours, you're already connected. You don't have to spend 30 minutes trying to discover that connection. You don't have to spend some time trying to get back in that presence. You've put yourself in the zone and then hamdulillah tonight's

00:10:38--> 00:11:20

the perfect opportunity for that with the last the last hour of today being Saturday job being an hour of acceptance. And your brothers and sisters The only advice that I want to give you as you come tonight with your job. The main advice, ask Allah Subhana which Allah for things of the hereafter. ask Allah for your forgiveness. The greatest gift that you can come out of Ramadan with is that part and then that forgiveness and make it comprehensive. And don't let a moment go by while your tongue is not busy. When you find yourself you know between your eyes even as you're walking, if you if you're going to you know to do something outside if you're going to use the restroom,

00:11:20--> 00:11:26

whatever it is, on your way as you're walking as you're walking between rooms alone in a careful one to one I feel fat for me.

00:11:27--> 00:12:10

At NASA jr has an awful accuracy Hassan joaquina de nada, ask a lot for the best of this world in the best of the hereafter. Keep yourself engaged in these last few nights. Keep yourself in liquid and connect that liquid connect that remembrance to your job. And ask Allah subhanaw taala for the most meaningful things that you can possibly ask him for. There is no shortage of trauma in the world today. Whether it is turkey two days ago or Somalia yesterday or Bangladesh today, and though the media does not set as much light on it as it should, it means something to us. You have a lot of brothers and sisters to make you out for as well readjust your priorities because of the things that

00:12:10--> 00:12:18

you asked for. And the way that you make your art tonight is very telling of the of the of the inclinations and the priorities that you have.

00:12:19--> 00:12:57

And that doesn't mean don't ask Allah for the matters of this world. ask Allah for the matters of this world. Allah subhanho wa Taala is a third Allah is more Allah subhana wa tada has the bounties of the heavens and the earth. So ask Allah subhanaw taala for whatever you want to ask. But seriously, bring yourself tonight in sha Allah to Allah to really ask Allah subhana wa tada for forgiveness and do acts that are beloved to Allah subhanaw taala that increase the likelihood of that forgiveness coming upon you in that part in coming to you and place your hearts in the Presence of Allah subhanho wa Taala from now until those moments in sha Allah, where you come tonight and you

00:12:57--> 00:13:35

ask the last panel tada for that forgiveness and that Pardon? We ask Allah subhana wa tada to forgive us and to pardon us and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that if we have fallen short, in the first few weeks of Ramadan, that our Riba our acts of worship in these last few nights salvage what we have missed in Ramadan, we ask Allah Subhana hearts out of that if our hearts have been neglectful and absent, that they find his presence of Hana horchata today We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that our tongues are made easy to remember him in these last few nights and we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala that he write us down amongst those who are redeemed, those who are freed from his

00:13:35--> 00:14:13

punishment and from his wrath and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to shower us in His mercy and we ask Allah subhana wa tada that as the angels descend tonight and these last few nights of Ramadan, that Allah subhanho wa Taala allows the best of those angels that Allah allows this message to be the messages upon which God at His Salaam and his most beloved of angels descend and report our names back to Allah subhana wa Tada. And we ask a lot to be pleased with us and to be pleased and forgive our brothers and sisters all over the world for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever seeks forgiveness for his brothers and sisters Allah will write down for him a good deed for each

00:14:13--> 00:14:28

one of those people. So May Allah subhanaw taala forgive our brothers and sisters around the world and grant them the benefit and the blessing of this night and the nights to come as well along I mean, oh, look at how that was tough for La Jolla comedy Saturday must be interested in who will go for him
