Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah see the masurian Wada and he was so happy

00:00:08--> 00:00:10

to say that we had the hayleigh Deen

00:00:11--> 00:00:43

there is no extra brownie points for knowing the topic for today. And that's because we are entering into the final phase of Ramadan if we can call it a phase but in reality it is the last third of the month it is the last 10 nights of Ramadan. It is a very important and very blessed and highly rewardable time of the

00:00:44--> 00:01:37

this of this, this year, this month, etc. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to put extra efforts in this month in these 10 days more than anything else. And the reason as we spoke about yesterday we said that the process is to put extra effort in. The reason being is that these 10 nights they have Lila to cuddle in them. And laylat will paddle is a great night. It's a night that Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen from amongst the night for the descending down or the ascending down of the Quran. In Enza now feel a little better. So because later to padri is that special night that which Allah subhanaw taala sent down the Quran or toast to start the revelation

00:01:37--> 00:01:46

of the Quran on this night, it has a very special power because if you consider that the salvation of humanity

00:01:48--> 00:01:52

relied on the coming of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:53--> 00:02:29

La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah so the, the coming of the prophets I send them the advent of his return of his message was the important part for humanity to initiate everything that needed for their salvation in terms of knowing how to worship Allah subhanaw taala in terms of knowing the deen how to practice the rules, etc. So, this night commemorates the beginning of that link between the heavens and the earth, which allow us to start

00:02:30--> 00:03:01

that revelation of 23 years documenting and recording the most important communication that has sent down to the to the earth and it all started with laser cutter. So, you can see it is a very special knife in that in that way. Now, later. So, powder has a number of meanings, either sometimes they are translated as the night of power in terms of goodra meaning power and the ability other might also mean the other form of other all the other

00:03:03--> 00:03:12

textual derivation of other is regarding to narrowness or restrictions. And this way you say this is your other means this is your restricted,

00:03:14--> 00:03:57

restricted your fixed portion that's getting to you that's why I say federal law, meaning that's what Allah has chosen for you and it has given you in this set portion. So the night of butter is also a restricted knife in the sense that it is only one night is a small time, a small period of time compared to the rest of the the or arrays or other from the meaning of decree and destiny. That Allah subhanho wa Taala sets down in some durations on this night, the destiny for people for the next year, and so on. So there are different meanings for that. Also, other can mean position and status. You say someone's bothering me, somebody has a high status or a night of power is all of

00:03:57--> 00:04:51

those nights of either the Night of Decree the night of station, the night of position the night of, of state status. And having said that, it is a very great night as we all know, Allah subhanho wa Taala has given from his special reward for this night. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in many ahaadeeth he said look for it in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. In some narrations. He said look for it in the last seven nights in some durations, he said look for it in the odd nights. And this is I think part of my opinion some of the confusion that some people have. So we have those different durations. We have a very strong integration as well, from someone else a habit even

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

swearing By Allah, it's the 27th night and so on. Now, a lot of that might seem a little bit conflicting.

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

For example, somebody might say, well, if the price and find it in the last seven nights, why are we saying that it's in the last 10 nights to say it's in the last seven? Or if he said, if somebody saying is the 27th night, then why are we looking anywhere else? and so on so forth. And the reality is that there's no contradiction. Well, what is a missing important point to understand is

00:05:19--> 00:06:05

that when those the Sahaba, or indeed the prophet SAW Salem was talking about, he was talking specifically about that year, because every year, which is a very strong opinion, almost every year laylat will either will or may change and appear differently. So on one occasion, it was in the last 10 nights, on one occasion, it happened to be in the last seven. So it was a much easier for us a habit to have a little bit more strength on one night, it was the 27th night. So therefore, you know, the Sahaba would have said yes, definitely, it was the 27th night and they could swear by a lie because they knew that and so on. And we know from many a Hadith of the prophets lie Selim was

00:06:05--> 00:06:06

shown

00:06:07--> 00:06:23

the night of either in one narration, and he then was when two people he came off to the masjid he saw people arguing to people arguing and that knowledge was, was lifted because of their arguments. So it is

00:06:24--> 00:06:58

around for last pantalla that He has given us Laila to pander for us to search can be any of those 10 nights, it could be as well, in the same way any of the odd nights big then it could be any of the even nights because the organize, we don't know when the night start, we don't know when they will finish or normal lawn and so on. It doesn't therefore, it would not be correct to just put your hopes on set number of days, when you don't know where or what it might be, or what occasion when, when it started, etc.

00:07:00--> 00:07:44

Now, also, laser father is one of those things of a Lost Planet Allah. Not only has he multiplied the award, but also it is a special night because the whole place is full of angels. And that's another meaning of later either because they say that the earth is also restricted. For angels, there's not there's not any space for the angels, the amount of angels that come down onto the earth on that night is so many that they they struggle to find space amongst themselves. And that's why even the sun as he rises on the The next day, it doesn't come up with a very light, bright glow, because the angels are still there. They are, if you like screening, the intense light of the sun.

00:07:44--> 00:07:47

Now Allah subhanho wa Taala may or with his

00:07:49--> 00:08:31

honor to certain people, he may show them which night is the night of Iran. We spoke previously about how pm lay is a privilege from Allah Subhana Allah and he gives it to him He wills and similarly you might choose to give letters to other to whom He wills and he might tell people that this has led up either in their dream or they might have some sort of sign which will enable them to do more Eva and to not miss out on this one. So that could be a virtue from Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's why in the Hadith, I show the line as she said, the RS will allow a writer in UI to lay letter local dairy farmer aboulafia, she said almost your law telling me if I was shown the night of

00:08:31--> 00:09:18

butter, what night it is, what should I say in it? And the prophets I said lamb obviously understood her question and he responded to her. And he didn't say to her No, no, you're not going to be told when lit up either is he affirmed this understanding that later to apply there may be shown and so he said to her, if you are seeing this later to further then you should make the alumni NACA offer one to have a laugh workflow for me. And so that is the importance of the other I'm sure most of you already are aware of its importance or its greatness. It just then remains for us to say that is important that a person has a schedule, a schedule in which they are

00:09:19--> 00:09:31

trying to make use as much use of the night as possible to divide the night adequately into different sections where they are reading for and they're doing a car they're making. They're praying

00:09:33--> 00:09:54

and they're having food as well, they're having breaks etc. So all of that is there in the schedule. Surely we'll get the most out of this great night in Sharla. We'll be posting out a rough template for you to help you to make that plan in Charlotte Tyler. So look out for that in the coming well tomorrow by the letter Alif allow us
