Spencer listeners, once again, we gather at the end of the month for the monthly the seed of the Holy Grail.

00:01:24--> 00:01:27

Having started from the last surah

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

we've now reached

00:01:32--> 00:01:35

the ninth seventh sort of, sort of an odd

00:01:40--> 00:01:40

sort of,

00:01:42--> 00:01:46

is one of the shorter sorts of Of course,

00:01:47--> 00:01:50

a very famous sorter,

00:01:51--> 00:01:54

which almost all Muslims are familiar with,

00:02:01--> 00:02:01

sort of

00:02:05--> 00:02:23

is famous for its brevity, the fact that most people have memorized the surah in order to recite in the Quran regularly hear it and most importantly, because of its connection with the month of Ramadan. And its reference to later

00:02:24--> 00:02:28

the most important night for the Muslims in the whole year.

00:02:33--> 00:02:39

Sort of his most famously known as sort of the other as well as what Layla did.

00:02:42--> 00:02:48

Lots of more data that says, I will be lurking in the sheep one of regimes

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

in the McAfee lately.

00:02:57--> 00:03:01

Indeed, We have revealed it in the Knights of

00:03:05--> 00:03:05

Labor.

00:03:08--> 00:03:09

And what will

00:03:10--> 00:03:12

make you aware

00:03:15--> 00:03:15

of what

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

the Knights of London is

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

labor from

00:03:22--> 00:03:23

the Knights of

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

Edelman

00:03:26--> 00:03:31

is better than 1000 months does equal to World War.

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

The angels descend

00:03:37--> 00:03:44

and the spirits fee her in this line. But you've not been mistakenly

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

by the command of their law

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

with every decree

00:03:52--> 00:03:54

Salaam Salaam here

00:03:58--> 00:04:06

peace it's his motivating fudge till the rising of the dome.

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

That's a simple translation of the Sora.

00:04:15--> 00:04:16

Fly continue.

00:04:17--> 00:04:19

Let me explain something about God.

00:04:21--> 00:04:24

The word used in the surah repeatedly

00:04:30--> 00:04:32

I haven't translated I've just left it

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

because incorporates a number of need.

00:04:41--> 00:04:52

The primary meaning here in this order and in this context is one of greatness. So other here means measure

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

something of great measure of magnitude of great significance.

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

importance

00:05:02--> 00:05:13

of great honor and dignity and something of Loftus. So in this context means greatness loftiness

00:05:15--> 00:05:24

someone could really call it a night of greatness. And one of the but it's not the only meaning incorporates another meaning which is covered

00:05:25--> 00:05:38

in the other part of the surah, which is also referenced in another song, which I will explain shortly. And the second meaning to this word,

00:05:41--> 00:05:50

which is something which makes it great. So one of the reasons which greatness and one of the incorporates the meanings of the word is decreased.

00:05:54--> 00:05:57

So, I'll leave it says,

00:05:58--> 00:06:33

and we should understand its primary meaning to be locked in Islam greatness. And its secondary meaning which incorporates a meaning to be decree. And the incorporated secondary meaning is one of the reasons why it's so great. So mainly Later, we'll cover should be understood as being the magnet of greatness, because it's the night of a last decree. And but not only because of that, it's the night of a large degree, for many of the reasons.

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

So in Anza, malfi, later through,

00:06:38--> 00:06:41

indeed, We have revealed it,

00:06:42--> 00:06:49

the pronoun it refers to the Holy Quran, and a lot of the mentions,

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

and this is part of the

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

style of the Arabic language and its rhetoric.

00:07:00--> 00:07:03

In that, by

00:07:07--> 00:07:19

with that, referring to something with a pronoun, instead of actually mentioning it's explicitly is a means of giving it importance and significance locked into some greatness.

00:07:22--> 00:07:29

So, law simply says in indeed we have revealed it's referring to the

00:07:31--> 00:07:31

fee later

00:07:33--> 00:07:35

in the night of but

00:07:39--> 00:07:50

elsewhere in the program, in sort of de Haan Allah subhanho wa Taala is harming work dabbing or being in the malfi, later to mobile

00:07:51--> 00:07:53

in Naka, de

00:07:57--> 00:08:03

la says, amin, by the clear block, you indeed we have revealed it

00:08:04--> 00:08:19

again, that it refers to the book, the Holy Quran, but here in sort of the Han, Allah swears by the clear book. So he says, How mean, while dabbling or being by the clear book

00:08:23--> 00:08:38

in Lanza novel feel a little more Baraka. Indeed, We have revealed it, ie the clear book, in a blessed not that blessed night referred to in sort of dawn has been clarified here.

00:08:39--> 00:08:44

That the blessed Knights being referred to there is none other than Laila.

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

And this is also

00:08:50--> 00:09:02

a further clarification of another verse of the arm and sort of Baccarat in which law says, Shadow DOM and the unzila fee hill or quarterly nursery will be in a minute hold on for

00:09:03--> 00:09:06

that month of Ramadan, in which,

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

or an has been revealed

00:09:11--> 00:09:12

as a guidance

00:09:14--> 00:09:21

for mankind, and as clear proofs of guidance, and as clear proofs of distinction.

00:09:22--> 00:09:34

So again, the verse of sort of Bukhara is very general, it's not specific, allows him to say is that the Koran was revealed in the month of Ramadan.

00:09:35--> 00:09:49

All three, this is the verse of sort of the Bukhara, the beginning of sort of de Haan and the sort of the, the, these verses of sort of others are all related. They all more or less refer to one and the same thing.

00:09:50--> 00:09:58

The verse of sort of Baccarat is much more general. The verse of sort of the Han is a bit more specific

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

And the verse was sort of other is very specific.

00:10:08--> 00:10:13

Before we speak a little further itself, it's the importance

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

a valid question

00:10:18--> 00:10:19

which people ask,

00:10:21--> 00:10:25

and which even the Sahaba of the Ummah were presented with

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

is

00:10:29--> 00:10:35

that in salted Baccarat, Allah says that month of Ramadan in which the Quran was revealed,

00:10:39--> 00:10:51

indeed, the Quran was revealed and in sort of the harm, we have revealed it in a blessed night, and sort of here, we revealed it in there.

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

So,

00:10:54--> 00:10:58

or, as we know, was revealed gradually

00:11:00--> 00:11:02

inverses and insulates

00:11:03--> 00:11:17

piece by piece over an approximate period of 23 years. And the revelation wasn't restricted to a single noun, or even a single month it was revealed in other souls.

00:11:18--> 00:11:24

So, what's the meaning of the Quran being revealed in just one night and in just one month?

00:11:27--> 00:11:31

And are the three and the different to each other?

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

The answer is very simple.

00:11:37--> 00:11:40

I'm delighted my boss of the alarm explained,

00:11:42--> 00:11:43

that

00:11:45--> 00:11:52

was first revealed from the local level, the protective tablets

00:11:53--> 00:11:54

in the seventh heaven,

00:11:56--> 00:11:57

to the lowest Heaven,

00:12:02--> 00:12:07

which he refers to as Baitullah is the realm of armor.

00:12:08--> 00:12:12

So the plan was revealed from the protected tablets to the lowest heaven.

00:12:14--> 00:12:26

In preparation for its revelation sort of saw the law, some of the love it was similar. So the plan was revealed in a single instance, on mass as it was complete.

00:12:27--> 00:12:36

And then from the first Heaven, it was gradually revealed to the Prophet some of the love it, some of them over a period of 23 years.

00:12:38--> 00:12:43

The first stage of this revelation Are you the poor and being revealed in its entirety

00:12:44--> 00:12:50

from the protective tablet to the lowest Heaven, this occurred in late April.

00:12:53--> 00:13:00

Furthermore, and therefore it was in Ramadan. Furthermore, the beginning of the revelation of

00:13:01--> 00:13:13

the first verses of the Quran, Acropolis, Arabic Allah vihara, first five verses of surah Braddock, were also revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the month of Ramadan.

00:13:15--> 00:13:19

So if we regard the revelation of the Quran as being in three stages,

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

the

00:13:23--> 00:13:26

transfer the single transfer,

00:13:27--> 00:13:32

and revelation of the entire program from the highest heaven to the lowest,

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

from

00:13:35--> 00:14:10

a lot of the sex of tablets to the lowest Heaven, that's the first stage of Revelation. The second stage of Revelation is the revealing of the very first verses and the beginning of that revelation, from the lowest heaven to the earth, total sort of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then the third stage of the revelation is the continuation of that revelation gradually over 23 years. So stage one, stage two were both in the month of Ramadan, stage one was in labor.

00:14:11--> 00:14:28

And, according to many Dollar Man, the stage two was also in Laila to other ie the beginning verses of the holy war, an accomplishment of the quality Hello, received by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the cave of

00:14:29--> 00:14:36

fungibility, alayhis salam. These verses were also revealed at night in later to other

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

parts of the lesson, the law.

00:14:40--> 00:15:00

Therefore, in all three verses in sort of other where Allah says indeed we revealed it in the nights of others, in the beginning of the harm where Allah says indeed we revealed it in a blessed night. Both are correct. Both refer to stage one and two of the revenue

00:15:01--> 00:15:48

And since there isn't Ramadan, therefore, the verse of sort of Bukhara is correct in that, that month of Ramadan in which the urn was revealed, ie, the first stage of Revelation, as well as the second stage of Revelation. In fact, there's a hadith later by a man handling as Muslims, and Amanda Bharani and others from worth, the love. I'm one of the companions, which explicitly states that not only the or own but also the other books. Holy Books given to the prophets and messengers were also reveal to them in the month of Ramadan. for the month of Ramadan is a month of Revelation, the Torah was given to Musa alayhis salaam in this month of Ramadan, the NGO was given to the Prophet

00:15:48--> 00:16:20

sallallaahu salam in the month of Ramadan, the rule of the Psalms were given to the Prophet sallahu alayhi Salaam in the month of Ramadan, and the sacrifice of Ibrahim the scrolls and scriptures given to the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis, salaam, were also revealed to him in the month of Ramadan. So other revelations were given to the messengers in the month of Ramadan, and the revelation for the soul, the law, some of the love it or some of them, was also

00:16:22--> 00:16:41

in the month of Ramadan, both the single transfer from the highest heaven the protected tablets to the lowest Heaven, as well as the second stage of Revelation, which is the beginning of the revelation of the whole report with the words product responsibility hudec, that also took place in the month of Ramadan.

00:16:43--> 00:17:04

Therefore, all three verses are interconnected, they all refer to one on the same thing, and all of them are correct and valid. The state third stage of Revelation, which is the gradual continuation of the revelation of the 23 years is not really referred to in these three verses, only the first two stages are

00:17:06--> 00:17:16

now a more complex question. And something which I explained in some detail a few months ago also, which is

00:17:19--> 00:17:19

what

00:17:21--> 00:17:23

was revealed gradually over time.

00:17:25--> 00:17:38

Muslims also believe that prior to the revelation of some of the verses in the Quran, not all of them, but some of the verses of the Quran, there were incidents there were precursors

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

that were set

00:17:43--> 00:17:47

stage stages events, which the 4am refers to.

00:17:49--> 00:18:08

So there was the Battle of but or an refers to it late after the Battle of but there was a battle of the court and refers to it later, there was a property in the law it was married marriage to Zainab interjection of the Allahu Allah, the verses of surah refer to that marriage.

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

There.

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

There were many incidents in the life, both personal and public, of the soul loss and the love

00:18:19--> 00:18:20

the Quran reversed.

00:18:27--> 00:18:32

Muslims also believe that a number of the verses of the Quran were abrogate.

00:18:33--> 00:18:36

So verses were revealed and read.

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

And then they were abrogated

00:18:43--> 00:18:45

also refers to

00:18:48--> 00:18:51

certain things which

00:18:55--> 00:18:58

are appear to have proceeded the aura.

00:18:59--> 00:19:00

But

00:19:03--> 00:19:04

before arm was written,

00:19:06--> 00:19:26

or that existed long before those events, and not just the recent events and the precursors in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prior to the revelation of the verses, but something much more for instance, one common objection which is raised is the poor MCs one is avoiding bad Vic

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

and the urethra How about the Assad?

00:19:33--> 00:19:34

Indeed, we

00:19:36--> 00:19:40

decreed in this award in the Psalms

00:19:42--> 00:19:45

after the admonition that the earth

00:19:47--> 00:19:50

my pious seven shall inheritance.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

So this is a reference to what's commonly known as the meek shall inherit the earth. But it says that the we

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

decreed in the wall.

00:20:05--> 00:20:15

But the Quran existed before there's a board in the Allahumma for the liquitex tablet. So what are we speaking about the wall, or whether we're speaking about

00:20:16--> 00:20:20

any of these other incidents in the life of the Prophet salallahu it or something?

00:20:23--> 00:20:35

All of this apparently contradicts what I've just mentioned about the Koran being revealed in its entirety in one single marriage from the lopen, raffles, the protective tablets and the highest heaven to the lowest heaven.

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

So how can this be true?

00:20:47--> 00:20:52

How can this contradicts the passage of time and the laws of time?

00:20:54--> 00:20:55

The Quran existed,

00:20:57--> 00:21:00

and it was referring to incidents much later.

00:21:05--> 00:21:06

The Quran existed in the

00:21:08--> 00:21:18

in its complete form. And yet it's referring to incidents and events in the personal and public life of Rasulullah sallallahu it was something

00:21:19--> 00:21:21

and this How about all the alarm?

00:21:24--> 00:21:25

So how can that be true?

00:21:27--> 00:21:28

Once

00:21:35--> 00:21:36

all of this has to do with time,

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

and time space,

00:21:43--> 00:21:44

or the creation of a law

00:21:47--> 00:21:48

of life is not bound

00:21:49--> 00:21:52

by the laws of time and space.

00:22:01--> 00:22:03

We exist in this universe.

00:22:06--> 00:22:09

And this universe has its own laws.

00:22:12--> 00:22:16

its own constraints, its own constants.

00:22:18--> 00:22:22

And physicists and scientists and astronomers believe theoretically,

00:22:23--> 00:22:24

that

00:22:25--> 00:22:30

this isn't just the this isn't the only universe they are the universe.

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

And the other universes

00:22:35--> 00:22:41

themselves are not bound by the laws and the constraints and constants of this universe.

00:22:43--> 00:22:49

Time and Space belong to this universe. We can't argue that time and space.

00:22:51--> 00:22:56

And the laws and constants of this universe are equally applicable to the other universes.

00:22:57--> 00:23:06

In fact, forget the other universes. So far, we're only we were we are only familiar with three dimensions that

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

they now speak of a fourth dimension.

00:23:14--> 00:23:22

Prior to Einstein's theory of relativity, and prior to Einstein's theories of physics

00:23:24--> 00:23:26

for approximately 300 years,

00:23:29--> 00:23:44

the laws and the theories relating to physics of Isaac Newton were prominent and prevalence for three centuries, the whole scientific world believes in Newtonian physics.

00:23:46--> 00:23:55

With Einstein's theories, three centuries of physics, three centuries of physics and three centuries of laws were turned on their head.

00:24:00--> 00:24:13

When Einstein proposed his theories, and then rate later, they were proved through observation, especially through the Eclipse and other observations. scientists all over the world,

00:24:15--> 00:24:32

in their, in their collective number, have to accept that these new theories which were observed which were proven, actually turn Newtonian physics of three centuries on their head, completely abolished some of the theories of Isaac needs.

00:24:35--> 00:24:38

And then, from then to recently,

00:24:40--> 00:24:42

normal physics,

00:24:44--> 00:24:55

food and the possibility of quantum physics. But now, with observations of quantum mechanics and quantum physics, many of the

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

previously held beliefs and theories

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

About normal physics have also been brought into question.

00:25:07--> 00:25:12

They're actually working commercially on quantum computers, quantum computers

00:25:14--> 00:25:19

are possible without the reality of quantum physics. And quantum physics

00:25:20--> 00:25:24

messes up everything we've known about the universe.

00:25:27--> 00:25:31

Where a single thing can be in two contradictory states at one time,

00:25:32--> 00:25:38

when in fact, a single object can possibly in theoretically be in two different places at one time.

00:25:41--> 00:25:47

And these are phenomena that are actually being observed and worked on right now.

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

The point I'm trying to make is

00:25:54--> 00:25:58

we're forever changing our understanding of the world and the universe.

00:25:59--> 00:26:00

And what we

00:26:01--> 00:26:08

always tend to believe is not possible, often is later proven to be possible.

00:26:10--> 00:26:25

three centuries of Newtonian physics were overturned by Einstein's theories, recent discoveries in quantum physics, have overturned widely held beliefs about standard physics.

00:26:26--> 00:26:32

And it continues. And yet we are all still talking about one Earth,

00:26:34--> 00:26:37

one Earth, in one solar system,

00:26:39--> 00:26:41

in one galaxy,

00:26:42--> 00:26:44

in one universe.

00:26:47--> 00:26:51

They say they are an average of about 200 billion stars in one galaxy.

00:26:52--> 00:27:02

And there are approximately 200 billion galaxies, but unknown to us. And all of this is still within one single universe.

00:27:05--> 00:27:16

And they say there may be many other universes, and the other universes are not bound by the laws and the constants and the constraints, or even the concept of time and space,

00:27:17--> 00:27:20

which are only applicable to this year.

00:27:21--> 00:27:33

In fact, black holes exist in the universe, and time, stops, and possibly could go into reverse, at the edge of a black hole.

00:27:36--> 00:27:41

So the laws of time and space are broken by black holes within the universe.

00:27:44--> 00:27:46

Having understood all of that,

00:27:48--> 00:27:56

this universe, time and space and laws, belongs to Allah for his creator.

00:27:57--> 00:28:12

If we believe we if we think that other universes are not bound by the laws of time and space, and the constants and the constraints of this universe, and how can the creator of everything be bound by his own creation?

00:28:14--> 00:28:15

Far from it,

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

and let me put a real cat in the pigeons,

00:28:22--> 00:28:23

physicists.

00:28:25--> 00:28:31

Not all but some actually believe. And you may have heard this.

00:28:32--> 00:28:36

But everything is already decreed and pre written.

00:28:37--> 00:29:01

But they say they say this, not from the perspective of faith, but they say this based on their understanding of the laws and physics of the universe. So according to them, based on the laws and the physics of universe, what will happen 10 years from now, at a given time, is already decreed. And it will happen. Nothing or no one can stop it.

00:29:03--> 00:29:03

That's

00:29:05--> 00:29:18

it's difficult to understand, it's difficult to explain. But they believe that is the inevitable results and consequence of the laws of time and space, and the constants of the universe and our physics

00:29:20--> 00:29:26

that what's going to happen 1020 years from now, is already set and nothing can change.

00:29:34--> 00:29:35

So

00:29:36--> 00:29:39

we are human beings, we are feeble.

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

In many things. chimps are cleverer than us. It's a fact. You may have seen these programs where they show chimpanzees, solving puzzles on compete screenings, and punching the screen when it when numbers are flashed.

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

regularly without training,

00:30:04--> 00:30:10

and just basic learning. chimps in cages outperform any human being.

00:30:13--> 00:30:15

And we marvel at how intelligence

00:30:16--> 00:30:20

chimps can beat us in mathematics in numbers.

00:30:23--> 00:30:28

Not in extensive arithmetic, but even simple puzzles like this, go and check it out.

00:30:31--> 00:30:33

We marvel at our ability to speak.

00:30:36--> 00:30:47

Animals recognize each other and communicate and converse with each other. Despite being absent from each other for over 10 years, they've observed that even dolphins and then

00:30:49--> 00:30:56

animals, birds fishes communicate with each other, and display a high degree of intelligence.

00:30:57--> 00:31:03

chimpanzees can outperform human beings in certain puzzles,

00:31:04--> 00:31:05

and number games.

00:31:07--> 00:31:21

And we marvel at our intelligence. And with that intelligence, which Allah has given us, and which is so limited, so susceptible, so vulnerable to error.

00:31:22--> 00:31:30

That we can have false memories. We imagine things. People can play simple tricks on us.

00:31:32--> 00:31:33

power of persuasion.

00:31:36--> 00:31:44

You walk into a supermarket, a certain type of mood music is playing, and we prompt you to buy what we don't need.

00:31:46--> 00:31:50

a swindler stands in front of us, talks to us.

00:31:51--> 00:31:58

In a few minutes, he or she manages to convince us to part with our money and buy something that we don't need.

00:32:02--> 00:32:03

We've got

00:32:04--> 00:32:29

a bit of a tummy ache, we can't understand. We go to a charlatan. And he says some old relative in a village back home has cast a spell on you. And despite our PhDs, and our wealth, we buy hook line and sinker. And we pay them 1000 pounds for the privilege of Bay being made fools off

00:32:30--> 00:32:35

with that kind of intelligence. We then question the other other last round of water and

00:32:39--> 00:32:42

we question the wisdom and the element and the knowledge of

00:32:45--> 00:32:48

scales are minute that measure

00:32:49--> 00:32:50

Goldust

00:32:51--> 00:32:56

imagine putting a boulder or a rock on that scale, what will happen it collapses.

00:32:57--> 00:33:01

Forget scales of gold and gold dust.

00:33:03--> 00:33:06

These computers that sits on our desktops,

00:33:07--> 00:33:13

amazing pieces of technology, overloaded with information, what happens it crashes.

00:33:15--> 00:33:20

For those of you who are familiar with it, components can actually burn

00:33:22--> 00:33:31

graphic cards and processes. If they are overloaded. They are known to actually crash and then

00:33:34--> 00:33:38

overload an electrical system what happens?

00:33:40--> 00:33:43

collapses, short circuit cuts out.

00:33:44--> 00:33:46

If we overload

00:33:48--> 00:33:48

our brain

00:33:50--> 00:33:52

if we place the boulder of questions of

00:33:54--> 00:33:56

relating to lost power, hold that

00:33:57--> 00:33:58

on this my new

00:33:59--> 00:34:05

brain of ours, what will happen? It will collapse it will be defeat.

00:34:10--> 00:34:18

So this question about how can about the arm being in its complete form in the form?

00:34:20--> 00:34:26

Despite referring to incidents that come much late, how is that possible? It's possible for a loss.

00:34:29--> 00:34:31

Not for us to understand.

00:34:32--> 00:34:36

And this is where faith comes in. If a person has emotion if a person has faith,

00:34:38--> 00:34:49

then if the person has no faith, the moral question every single thing, every miracle every margin of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that a question about

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

every incident in the life of the prophets of Allah it are some of them, which is not normal for a human being as a human being

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

questionable.

00:35:04--> 00:35:11

So it's question of fact. If a person has faith in Allah Who is the source of the law,

00:35:12--> 00:35:21

then a person accepts that there are some things that this limit limited and weak intelligence or that others will not be able to fathom

00:35:23--> 00:35:24

or overcome.

00:35:25--> 00:35:32

And we will accept that the reality of those things will be commanded festers in the earth.

00:35:35--> 00:35:37

In any case, in mountains, and now feel a little

00:35:39--> 00:35:43

Indeed, We revealed it, ie the book, the Holy Quran, in the night of

00:35:46--> 00:35:48

the rock, come on a little cut.

00:35:49--> 00:35:57

And what will inform you what will make you aware of what later to cut is the night of greatness.

00:35:59--> 00:36:00

Laser to

00:36:01--> 00:36:21

the Knights of Edelman and Fisher is better than 1000 months 1000 months in which there is no leader to cut one minute, just one minute from McCullough to federal law. And in fact, they're after shortly. One single night is better than 1000 months.

00:36:24--> 00:36:28

of its days and nights of its worship of its deeds.

00:36:29--> 00:36:39

In my mind, it luckily relates and has not been, it's not a connected person. But he just says that he has reached me from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:36:42--> 00:37:07

That he was shown he was made aware of the deeds of the people of the past. So in comparison to their deeds, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam considered the opportunity and the age and the amount of deeds of this oma to be very literal, and this grieved him. So Allah subhanho wa Taala promised him the reward of later to cut the for his own.

00:37:12--> 00:37:29

And in a number of the profits and the love it was sort of a spoken of the greatness of others, which I will address shortly, but otherwise later to other the Edelman alpha later to cut, the night of greatness tonight is better than 1000 months.

00:37:30--> 00:37:59

One interesting thing here, thrice alarm mentions later, over and over again later, the other later two other in the first three verses 11 says done Asilomar equal to one rule, the angels descend and the spirits and the meaning of the spirits he is gibreel a hustler, they descend Fie her in this mind, but ignore him by the command of that old man kingdom with every decree.

00:38:00--> 00:38:08

What does that mean with every decree. And prior to that, what's the significance of the angels descending with gibreel alayhis salaam

00:38:10--> 00:38:15

the angels descend from the heavens on many occasions, but on this night,

00:38:16--> 00:38:20

they are they cover the earth has

00:38:22--> 00:38:26

on any normal occasion, even out of the labor to other and even after the month of Ramadan.

00:38:27--> 00:38:28

When

00:38:29--> 00:38:38

Allah servants gathered to remember a law to read the book of the law, the angels gather they surround them.

00:38:39--> 00:38:44

They actually make a tunnel all the way from the from this gathering to Alaska

00:38:45--> 00:38:50

to the heavens, make a tunnel from the gathering to the heavens.

00:38:52--> 00:38:56

They surround the gatherings of the of the recitation of the Holy Grail.

00:38:58--> 00:39:05

And that's our normal days. So specially in the month of Ramadan, and especially in the night of

00:39:06--> 00:39:06

Furthermore,

00:39:08--> 00:39:09

in a way,

00:39:10--> 00:39:30

the descending of the angels and specifically of Djibouti alayhis salaam in the night of is the commemoration of the coming down of gibreel alayhis. Salaam, and the angels in the lives of others. When he first brought the verses of the holy court and sort of sort of law, some of the law it was

00:39:32--> 00:39:54

pretty good to send them along with the with other angels. So in a way, this repetition year by year, in later than other of the descending of jabril, la Hassan spirits along with the angels. In a way this is a kind of commemoration of that original descent for a sort of law. Some of the law it was similar when he brought the holy grail

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

and they come with the decree of a law by the

00:40:00--> 00:40:10

Ma'am have a law with every decree of law. This simply refers to that in the night of I mentioned at the beginning, but other means greatness.

00:40:11--> 00:40:31

And part of that greatness. So one of the reasons for that greatness is that in this night, every decree, every major decree, is decreed by the law. And that's referenced in the verse or sort of the harm, where law says, How mean by the clear book, indeed, We have revealed it in a blessed night fee, how you throw

00:40:34--> 00:40:36

in the snide, every

00:40:38--> 00:40:41

firm decree is designed.

00:40:43--> 00:40:45

Many things are decided by the last panel

00:40:47--> 00:40:54

for the coming year, again, it's not something is not something we can understand. That's a fact.

00:40:55--> 00:40:56

It just

00:41:03--> 00:41:09

so many things are decided in this light. And this is one of the reasons why it's called later on.

00:41:12--> 00:41:38

And the angels descend by the command of Allah along with jabril alayhis salaam in the sniped by the permission and the command of their Lord, with every decree. Salaam here had done such, Allah sees peace it is meaning the night is a night of peace. It's the Knights of peace in many ways, the angels descend, and they actually say Salaam to the believers.

00:41:41--> 00:41:52

The angels descend with Salaam with peace, it's an instruction to peace, but in the month of Ramadan, even on later the others specifically,

00:41:54--> 00:42:09

try and adopt a demeanor and attitude and behavior of peace with each other. So it's not only a statement of fact, it's also an instruction as to how we should behave. Even in the Knights of God.

00:42:13--> 00:42:27

He had been playing this descending of the angels, but this piece, the special atmosphere of later than it exists and it remains till the break of dawn till the

00:42:29--> 00:42:30

rising of the door.

00:42:33--> 00:42:39

That's the simple meaning of the sore. Now, speaking of labor, itself,

00:42:42--> 00:42:46

most people tend to believe lights on the 27th nights of Ramadan.

00:42:48--> 00:42:51

So what is the reality of the day? Is it fixed?

00:42:54--> 00:42:55

Is it rotating?

00:42:57--> 00:42:58

If so,

00:42:59--> 00:43:02

in which period does it rotate?

00:43:04--> 00:43:07

There are many opinions of the Roma,

00:43:11--> 00:43:12

for instance, and

00:43:15--> 00:43:21

one opinion attributed to him is that later up

00:43:24--> 00:43:42

is not specific to the month of Ramadan. It can be any at any time of the year. I'm not saying this is his view, this is one opinion attributed to him. And people often find that strange. But remember what I need to learn here, they wouldn't just

00:43:43--> 00:43:45

say things for the sake of it.

00:43:47--> 00:43:53

If you look back into his opinions and his views, you always discover that there's a history.

00:43:55--> 00:43:59

And this view or this opinion, attributed to him that later

00:44:01--> 00:44:16

rotates throughout the year, not just in the month of Ramadan. This is a view that was held or attributed at least to the ruler ma of Kufa, and even to the companion Abdullah who was slow, that'll be a lot.

00:44:17--> 00:44:25

So normally always a history. In any case, I won't go into the details of the various opinions, the majority of the orlimar

00:44:26--> 00:44:38

conclude. And this is the simplest view. And this is the one that best reflects the narrations and that sort of law. Some of the law hiding him, some of them is that laylat

00:44:41--> 00:44:46

rotates in the odd nights of the final 10 days.

00:44:47--> 00:44:51

That's the most stable and

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

consistent view and which is consistent with the durations of the heavy

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

In fact, that's the one most accepted by most automa. But lately

00:45:05--> 00:45:06

is

00:45:10--> 00:45:19

a Mac which rotates in the odd nights of the final 10 days on Amazon. So the 21st 23rd 25th 27th and the 29th.

00:45:22--> 00:45:23

This is the best view.

00:45:24--> 00:45:33

One shouldn't debate to engage in unnecessary debate about all these other views also, and especially one shouldn't disparage anyone.

00:45:36--> 00:45:45

People sometimes criticize the fact that, oh, to think that the 27th night of Ramadan is later Truvada

00:45:46--> 00:45:49

is a simplistic view.

00:45:51--> 00:45:53

People have mentioned that that Oh,

00:45:54--> 00:46:03

to think that the 27th is fixed for later the other is a common view of laypeople.

00:46:05--> 00:46:09

That's also incorrect. In fact, this was the view and opinion of your mom.

00:46:12--> 00:46:17

And not only that, the companion or you know, garbage or the your loved one, he swore In the name of Allah,

00:46:18--> 00:46:29

that his position was that the 27th nights of Rama bomb is the little puzzle, and it doesn't rotate, it's fixed.

00:46:31--> 00:46:52

So all of these different opinions have their reasons, but I won't go into any of them. I'll just mention the most stable view which is consistent with that how the which is accepted by the clear majority of the LMR which is also the most famous that the latest one is not fixed for any one night it rotates.

00:46:53--> 00:47:02

During the odd nights of the final 10 days of Ramadan, it could be 2123 2527 or 29. And one should

00:47:03--> 00:47:32

exert oneself and these final 10 days of Ramadan because this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to do. In fact, Amanda Hardy and others relate to these, that prophets Allah love it was some of them in his search for Laila. But he did actigraph in his mustard for the first 10 days of Ramadan. Then he did then he continued with his Africa for the second 10 days of Ramadan. And then finally, on the 20th night, he made an announcement and said that

00:47:33--> 00:47:37

those who sat with me or who

00:47:39--> 00:48:05

engaged in Attica in the message, they should return and continue with the attic AF for I have been shown that later, the other isn't the final 10 days of Ramadan. And then, after that year, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would consistently do actigraph in the final 10 days of Ramadan. And part of the reason I've Attica parts of that seclusion is one search for later.

00:48:07--> 00:48:35

In fact, he would awaken his family and really worship Allah with great resolve and determination. This was the peak of his year, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was such a shot of the alarm on her essays, that he would be engaged in the vicar on the remembrance of Allah for every moment throughout the year. But as Ramadan would appear, he would never be more exerting

00:48:37--> 00:48:46

and more worshiping, and more striving than any other month, apart from Amazon, as much as he was in the month of shaba.

00:48:47--> 00:48:57

Then, when Ramadan came in the first 10 days, his ibadah was great. His exertions were greater than even the month of Shabbat.

00:48:58--> 00:49:20

And then in the second 10 days, they increased. And then finally, when it came to the final 10 days, for saw the laughs, and the love it was, some of them would remain awake for the entire night, he would awaken his family, who would encourage them to remain awake to engage in a bother and the prophets of the law highly most of them would

00:49:22--> 00:49:59

strive with great resolve and determination in these final 10 days as he would never do so throughout the rest of the year. And much of this was to do with Leyland from his Attica was to do with later parts of it was to do with Lady Gaga as clearly mentioned in the Hadith, that's what he was searching for. So that's our lesson for us. We strive in the final 10 days of Ramadan, specially in the on the 23rd 23rd 25th 27th and 29th. In fact, in the fleet by Imam Ahmed Mohammed is Muslim the demand mercy in southern Brazil will last a lot longer.

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

Who seldom says that

00:50:03--> 00:50:18

in the month of Ramadan, that is one night, the Knights of Labor Well, there is one night they literally Potter which is so great. He says, Whoever is deprived of good in this one mind, he is deprived of all

00:50:20--> 00:50:28

if someone cannot gain the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and receive laws mercy

00:50:29--> 00:50:34

in the month of Ramadan in the final 10 days, especially in Laila

00:50:36--> 00:50:43

then at which other opportunity will that person gain a last forgiveness and receive a large mess

00:50:44--> 00:50:52

in fact him I'm hacking relates to him as almost other up and so to others that prophets Allah equals send them a send to the member

00:50:54--> 00:51:01

and he said army he has a first step and he said army let the second step and he said army and at the third step

00:51:02--> 00:51:27

when he descended this habit of the alarm asked him on messenger of Allah today we observed you doing insane something which we haven't seen before you set your Ascendant the member on the teach step you said mean, amin, amin, why prophets Allah Allah Allah wa sallam said, and this is the paraphrase of of hadith of gibreel alayhis salaam came to me. And he made three two angles.

00:51:29--> 00:51:38

Each time I placed a foot from one of the steps you need to do, and on that, I said, I mean, imagine the leader of the angels making

00:51:39--> 00:51:48

in the message of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the leader of the Prophet saying amen to that, whilst he ascends his member,

00:51:49--> 00:51:52

and the three though as well, that

00:51:54--> 00:51:57

may that person, May that person

00:51:59--> 00:52:00

be removed

00:52:01--> 00:52:03

from the mercy of Allah,

00:52:04--> 00:52:11

who finds the month of Ramadan, and yet still does not get in forgiveness. He said army,

00:52:12--> 00:52:37

May that person be removed from the mercy of Allah, in whose presence Your name is mentioned, or messenger of Allah. And yet he still does not send Salaam Salaam upon some of the law and he was one of them. He said, Our me, May that person be removed and distance from the mercy of Allah will find both or one of his parents. And then through serving them, he still does not gain

00:52:40--> 00:52:42

profits and love it.

00:52:44--> 00:53:06

The relevant parts for us is the first part of the headlines which says that God of Islam prayed that may that person be removed and distance from the mercy of Allah, who finds the month of Ramadan, and yet still does not gain a last forgiveness and mercy during that month. And as he says, in the midst of evil, that

00:53:08--> 00:53:10

Ramadan contains one night later,

00:53:12--> 00:53:18

whoever is deprived of the good of this one mind, that person is deprived of all.

00:53:20--> 00:53:39

Ramadan is the peak time of the year for the believers and final 10 days of greatness. And in those 10 days later, there is a peak and the reason of the greatness of late Well, one of the reasons for the greatness related to Qatar

00:53:40--> 00:53:41

and

00:53:42--> 00:54:02

therefore the month of Ramadan is their connection to the holy quarter shadow Ramadan and lithiums and a fiegel or an Allah says that month of Ramadan in which the Quran was revealed, and the earnings revelation are both referenced in the in these two suits are sort of behind and sort of look other which speak of this blesma.

00:54:04--> 00:54:10

But and makes them part of their greatness. And part of the greatness of Amazon is because of that.

00:54:12--> 00:54:16

And that has a great connection with the month that I'm upon.

00:54:17--> 00:54:30

And it's not just about recitation. It's about rest, recitation. It's about understanding and with the holy war and reflecting on its meaning and message, and most importantly,

00:54:33--> 00:54:34

and then

00:54:35--> 00:54:44

that connection should be the greatest in the month of Ramadan, but it shouldn't seize with the passing of Ramadan. Rather, it should continue for the rest of the year.

00:54:48--> 00:54:52

nor should we think that we can suffice with just the word just later,

00:54:54--> 00:54:56

later to what is important,

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

but it doesn't

00:55:01--> 00:55:03

Excuse a person for the rest of the year.

00:55:05--> 00:55:07

In that, we only have to pray,

00:55:08--> 00:55:19

we only have to recite, we only have to remain awake, we only have to engage in a bother in this one man. And that will suffice us for the whole year. Now.

00:55:21--> 00:55:33

It doesn't remove the obligation of fasting of prayer five times a day of any of that, it does remove any obligation it does.

00:55:34--> 00:55:39

And the orlimar all agree that when it comes to the forgiveness of sins,

00:55:41--> 00:55:46

these ibadah all of these rewards are promised in that

00:55:47--> 00:55:50

they only forgive minus sin.

00:55:52--> 00:56:03

So fences, walk into the masjid sheds a person's sin, waiting from one solaar to the next sheds a person's sin.

00:56:05--> 00:56:08

doing good deeds sheds the person's sins.

00:56:13--> 00:56:37

All of these things shed sense in fact doing will do and performing to the gods Allah after will do sheds person sends pantheism and purifies However, all of these promises, even those which refer to a person returning to the states in which their mother gave birth to

00:56:38--> 00:56:45

even these are hard even these promises are all restricted to minor sin,

00:56:47--> 00:56:47

not major

00:56:49--> 00:56:56

appearance person's major sins are not forgiven, until and unless they specifically repent for

00:56:57--> 00:57:06

one and even the major sins and the minor sins. Only those sins are forgiven that are related to our last panel or

00:57:07--> 00:57:14

not with anyone not with anyone of his creation. Even hedge hedge does not shed

00:57:18--> 00:57:21

sins that are related to anybody else.

00:57:23--> 00:57:28

The person owes some sort of thing, or even if a person has wronged someone,

00:57:32--> 00:57:37

then the hedges valid, but that hedge is restricted to them.

00:57:39--> 00:57:47

What remains outstanding between them remains outstanding until they clear their debts in the dunya if not in the dunya then in that

00:57:51--> 00:58:11

I mentioned about hustle and bustle the Rahmatullah who uttered some very wise words. He lived, he died in 110 haich D. And he lived during the time of judgment, the use of the tyrannical, strong man

00:58:12--> 00:58:14

of the omiya didn't.

00:58:17--> 00:58:18

He

00:58:20--> 00:58:22

ruled Iraq.

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

It was a

00:58:27--> 00:58:43

it was just a simple policeman at one stage. And then he rose in the ranks, became a soldier rose in the rhinos, until finally he became the most powerful individual in the whole of the Omega dynasty.

00:58:46--> 00:58:48

And he was a tyrannical ruler.

00:58:51--> 00:59:08

He persecutor, the noble companions, including Amazon article, the alarm, he one of his favorite pastimes was taunting, and a sort of article the alarm on the companion to sort of law some of the law articles and when he wasn't companion himself.

00:59:10--> 00:59:30

He was a real brutal tyrant. Roland, I used to say of him that if all the nations of the past were to produce their tyrants, and we were to place all of them collectively on one panel of the scale, and we were to present only had judgment or use from this oma had judgment, the use of would outweigh all.

00:59:35--> 00:59:49

It was it was very brutal. They say that he was personally responsible for having commonly executed or having executed by his orders, over 120,000 people that was there.

00:59:53--> 00:59:55

And we are speaking of that individual

00:59:56--> 00:59:59

and the lesson was to the law wasn't in

01:00:00--> 01:00:21

favour of judgment use of Far from it. In fact, he, he hid from him and he fled for his life, from a judgment from a judgment or use of the same that hustle or bustle, you know, my personal buslee was once seated with a group of individuals, when someone started bad mouthing and criticizing and abusing, have judged the use of

01:00:24--> 01:00:36

the hustle and bustle of the law here lately. I'm not saying this is the law. Hear me out, I'm saying Look at his beautiful advice. The hustle and bustle of the law here they said to him,

01:00:37--> 01:00:41

don't speak of high judge in that manner, do not say anything.

01:00:43--> 01:00:59

She said, How can you say how can you prevent me from speaking of judgment, the use of when he is, is listen to the unsavoury moment hustle and bustle. He said, a law is just

01:01:00--> 01:01:02

a law is just

01:01:05--> 01:01:12

and just as a logon exact the full measure from a judge of the use of

01:01:14--> 01:01:17

an alarm will redress every wrong.

01:01:18--> 01:01:38

And alarm will punish him and hold him to account and take him to task for every wrong that he has done to others. A lot is just and therefore similarly, any wrong that you do to judge the use of a law will also hold you to task and take you to account for that.

01:01:42--> 01:01:47

He is responsible for the wrong he has committed. But you will be responsible for the wrong here.

01:01:49--> 01:01:53

And that was to do with someone like her judgment, the use of

01:01:55--> 01:01:56

a brutal time.

01:02:01--> 01:02:03

So whether it's Hutch

01:02:04--> 01:02:07

or any of the above, or whether it's worship leader through

01:02:09--> 01:02:10

these,

01:02:11--> 01:02:15

these acts of worship, they do not

01:02:17--> 01:02:24

exempt the person from their other obligations. Nor do they abolish or eradicate

01:02:26--> 01:02:31

sins, even major sins, unless a person specifically repentance from

01:02:33--> 01:02:34

an orders.

01:02:36--> 01:02:40

Nor do they eradicate sins related to other people.

01:02:41--> 01:02:44

In fact, even the common belief

01:02:45--> 01:02:54

that a person once they embrace Islam, everything is forgiven. It's clearly mentioned in the Hadith.

01:02:57--> 01:03:06

But this is to do with if a person does not persist in that behavior, otherwise, even after embracing Islam,

01:03:07--> 01:03:32

because embracing Islam is their greatest act of repentance is their greatest change. But if after embracing Islam, they persist in with their previous behavior, or Sue loves to love it or sell them says he will be held to account for and seized for the previous sins as well as the lates. Because that shows that there's no repentance.

01:03:34--> 01:03:44

And that shows that there's more to it that's part of their character, rather than something done out of ignorance, or because someone never considered it to be Hello,

01:03:47--> 01:03:48

Pamela, even Islam,

01:03:50--> 01:03:57

the greatest Eradicator of sins, even that will only abolish sins and absolve a person.

01:03:58--> 01:04:04

If a person truly repents and changes and does not persist in that behavior.

01:04:06--> 01:04:22

So when it comes available other labor to other as great as it is, it's not a magic formula for exempting one from their obligations or for abolishing all sins, especially if they are related to other people.

01:04:24--> 01:04:30

A person cannot be absolved of their responsibility in relation to other people's sins and less.

01:04:32--> 01:04:36

They seek forgiveness from that person and they

01:04:37--> 01:04:38

rectify the wrongs

01:04:41--> 01:04:43

in lilla, the innotab was

01:04:44--> 01:04:58

except for those who repent last season Look what what and make good their deeds or reform will be you know, and even clarify. So this is in reference to those who are guilty of withholding information.

01:05:01--> 01:05:04

Allah gave them knowledge, they withheld that knowledge.

01:05:05--> 01:05:06

They were responsible.

01:05:08--> 01:05:23

They were guilty, they were sinful. If they repent, their repentance is not sufficient, they have to repair the damage that they have done, they have to rectify the wrong and anything any information that they withheld, they now have to disclose.

01:05:24--> 01:05:58

These are the conditions of repentance. So they the other, this is another topic in itself. But I mentioned it here because, unfortunately there is this common misconception that labor to further is the be all and end all. It's the single magic. It's a single magic formula that solves everything, it doesn't as great as it is. It doesn't exempt anyone from their obligations, nor does it absolve anyone of their responsibility of sin, that they have committed sins that they have committed, especially in relation to other people.

01:05:59--> 01:06:26

I pray that last panel more to Allah enable us to understand the law makers amongst those who see the month of Ramadan again, and who are able to appreciate the month of Ramadan, and who Grant dolphy to find the Knights of Labor find later for other and spend it in a manner that is pleasing to Allah subhanho to Allah that is productive and rewarding for us and forgiving for us. Or some of the laws

01:06:27--> 01:06:43

in the Vietnam humid weather and he will start with each marine ceramic a lot more the commissioner learner he learned as the federal government to relate just to recap, I'll just quickly translate the verses again. Last season deed We have revealed it in the night of

01:06:44--> 01:06:45

and

01:06:46--> 01:06:48

what will inform you

01:06:49--> 01:06:51

what is the other

01:06:52--> 01:07:15

day, the night of other is better than 1000 months, the angels descend and the spirits meaning Jubilee in this land by the command of their Lord with every decree. Peace it says meaning peace it says the night is and that until the rising of the dome.
