Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh everyone My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, advice from my heart to you all Subhana Allah, we are about to enter a season of worship within a season of worship. We are about to enter the last 10 nights of Ramadan within the month of Ramadan. These Knights brothers and sisters in Islam are different to the first 20 nights of Ramadan. These Nights will dawn upon us in terms of where I am on that on Sunday evening, and for other people on Monday evening the point is from the 21st night of Ramadan till the end of Ramadan. These Nights denote the last 10 nights of Ramadan nights which Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen to be the best of all
nights while La Jolla Hanako Maya McCann Allahu mahira, Allah subhanho wa Taala creates and he gives a rank to parts of his creation over others by himself, with no one having a choice in the matter. These days brothers and sisters in Islam have a another night within them which Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen to be the greatest of all nights Laila to other the night of power, the Night of Decree the night of virtue, the night in which the Quran was revealed from the preserve tablet to the lowest Heavens and the night in which Allah subhanho wa Taala releases the decrees and Allah subhanho wa Taala permits the angels to descend to our atmosphere in numbers beyond our ability to
imagine Subhan Allah This night is housed by the last 10 nights of Ramadan. And it is a night that we famously known as a night, which is better than 1000 months now brothers and sisters in Islam. We don't know when exactly when this night will be. But we have with us the student of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his Sunnah was to search out these nights throughout the last 10 nights of Ramadan. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that these nights are different to the first three nights of Ramadan. A person who thinks that these nights I just like the other nights and makes no changes to the timetable moving in into these 10 nights and towards the end of Ramadan.
Then Subhan Allah what a loss this person is in for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during the first 20 nights of Ramadan. He would do it, he would sleep and he would pray and he would have his robe. But during the last nights of Ramadan, he tightened his belt and he wouldn't sleep. He would search out Laila to the other and he would wake up his family to do the same. Brothers and sisters in Islam. We have to apply ourselves. Allah subhanho wa Taala has brought to us Subhan Allah, a time and an opportunity and a season that those who have passed away wish they would have.
Brothers and sisters in Islam we know how many people have been buried, especially during recent times with the situation that Allah subhanho wa Taala has brought upon us with COVID
only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows whether we will be alive next year, whether we will get to witness another Ramadan, whether we will get to witness another 10 nights of Ramadan, whether we will get to witness the night of power and degree and virtually the other. being busy or the excuse of being busy is not good enough brothers and sisters in Islam and enjoyed the willow Carter con. You have to fix your timetables, amend your timetables and give the Knights that we entering into its dude it's due importance. being busy will never end it's part and parcel of the of the life of the son of Adam we will pass away brothers and sisters in Islam Subhanallah with things that we were
supposed to do that we didn't get done. We can't say we busy. We have to make changes we have to seek out this night by being in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala and bringing all of ourselves to the best of our ability intending the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala through Salah through recitation of the Quran through remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala through charity and not forgetting the advice of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to a Chateau de La Hoya and her when she asked him what should I say if I witnessed the night he said say Allah him in the car food to him Bula for for for me, that Oh Allah, you face the sins and you
love to face the sense where you face my sins. So kinda I use the translation a face, because it's amazing that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam didn't tell her to seek forgiveness, but he told them to ask Allah to face her sins, because brothers and sisters in Islam, the destruction of the son of Adam is due to our sins. It's due to our sins Subhan Allah, that sometimes the risk of Allah subhanho wa Taala is destined for us and it reaches our foreheads, but because of our sins, we don't get to benefit from the risk that Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed for us because Allah subhanho wa Taala has made our since a barrier between our sustenance and us benefiting from it Subhan Allah,
He tells eyeshadow the Allah who didn't have to ask Allah to efface her sins and in the process
teaches us the same because when we seek forgiveness from Allah, it entails us being forgiven. But as the scholars say Marbach are sad, but the, the, the remnants of the sin remain. But when you ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to face your sins, He forgives you in a way, as if you never did the sin in the first place. Subhan Allah, so increase this drought during these these nights as well. Now I do understand that not everyone has the capacity to take time off work and some people have to go to work and so on and so forth. But I'm saying brothers and sisters in Islam, put in the effort. If you have to sleep sleep, but sleep one hour less wake up one hour earlier than you used to during the
first 20 nights of Ramadan and engage Allah subhanho wa Taala it's only 10 nights and the rewards are so Pamela worth it, you get the rewards for the 10 nights. And if you catch Laila to other than rewards that are better than the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala for 1000 months La ilaha illa Allah, brothers and sisters in Islam, we have the remainder of the year for everything else, we have the remainder of the year to catch up on the one hour sleep that we take away from these nights, right to engage Allah subhanho wa Taala in search of These Nights, or more than one hour for those who are able to be awake for much longer, and hours for those who are able to dedicate these last 10
nights in the in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala because they've managed to take time off work and they've managed to sort of sort out their responsibilities during the day. The point is, we have enough time to catch up on sleep to catch up on work and do everything else. Let us take from the guidance of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam whilst the sun still shines in our lives brothers and sisters in Islam by that I mean once we breathe in business they say when they make hay while the sun shines, brothers and sisters in Islam boo Jana was you are breathing while you are alive and bull gender in a greater way when Allah subhanho wa Taala brings you opportunities so
Pamela seasons of worship that you wish you could not achieve by yourself brothers and sisters in Islam, which one of us lives for the period of Subhanallah 83 plus years and when the average lifespan of the oma is between 60 and 70 and Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us the ability to gain the rewards of worship for over 83 years to Pamela by just engaging him for one night. But to get that night we have to engage him during all the nights and this is the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala because Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't want for us the bare minimum. If he told us exactly the night we would only wake up for that night. Allah subhanho wa Taala once for us, more so Subhan
Allah He reveals to us in a way that allows us to be engaged even more. For those who truly understand. I leave you with these words brothers and sisters in Islam. ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept our worship thus far during our month and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to inspire us to reach new levels in terms of what remains ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those that fasted and stood the nights of Ramadan and stood the night of ready to other with Eman and good hope in the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those that are freed from the Hellfire us and our parents and our siblings and our wives and our
children and our loved ones I mean the Arab and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make our ending term Avan the sweetest and the strongest For indeed, actions are judged by their endings. Remember me and my family and my parents and the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam in your door as well brothers and sisters in Islam, I love you all for the sake of Allah wa fucka comilla wa sallam Allah alikum warahmatu who are Bearcat?
