The worksheets didn't go up on time. Okay, so a lot of us might have missed the Quran episode worksheet, but that's not a problem 111 today in the description box at the bottom of this video,
you will see a link to yesterday's worksheet and a link to today's worksheet. Okay, and don't forget to visit my website every day, the young learners corner portion of my website where we upload for you practice questions, courtesy of the sisters project. Now, before we kick off with today's session, let's just take a couple of questions that came in yesterday from you all in relation to the Quran. And when one was in relation to the Quran in one I felt was very important. Okay, we have
a prayer over one of our diligent students, Masha Allah, Who asked a question and said, which do i can i make for my parents to go to Gen. Marshall? I thought that was a beautiful question. And we must shed some guidance with regards to this question. So to my D a question you can ask a lot using any daura from your heart in any language you speak. Okay? It is raise your hands and say yeah, Allah, I really, really asked you to place my parents in the highest gender. This is enough, okay. But I also want to teach you about one that the prophets Allah that Allah subhana wa tada taught us to make for our parents. Allah told us in the Quran, and he taught us in the Quran, a Torah, and
that is for our parents. And that is in the form of saying,
Rob beer ham Houma, comma, neisseria that Oh, my Lord, have mercy on my mother and father.
Because they nurtured me and raised me and looked after me when I was small.
Don't last telling us this is the third page of similar to a sir I absolutely sure is the third page of DOMA. Why don't you go check and make sure so
this is what Allah tells us to, to save for our parents. Now when Allah tells us to say Rob did hamdulillah Oh my Lord, have mercy on my parents. This means Oh Allah, give my parents
Everything that is good in this life and the next life whether I know it's good Oh, I don't know that it's good. Whether I know to ask you for this for my parents or I don't know, because you're alive you know everything.
So I'm asking you, your Allah to give my parents everything that you know is the best in this life and the next that is that do I? So if you let this drop Rob Durham, Houma Kamara Bayani Samira, Rob Durham, Houma, Kamara Surya, and you use this drug for your parents. Then also you're asking Allah to grant your parents the highest gentlemen. Okay, very good question. Another question came from Khadija Mashallah, we have so many ideas Mashallah, this idea asked me that how come eco Europe, the calorie Halak was the first verse, Allah revealed. What is revealed me? Allah sent it down. Right Allah sent it down. And with gibreel, adding insulin to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
revealed something means to make something known to somebody else, when they didn't know it before. So when we say the Quran was revealed, we mean that the Quran was taught to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but before that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam didn't know it. That's what review means. Someone asked the question what is revealed to me, okay. So Khadija is asking sutra to Acropolis, neurotic Lady hallak surah. Allah was revealed first, or the first five verses will reveal first Why do we find it at the end of the Quran? Right. And that is because Allah subhanho wa Taala Remember we said revealed the Quran over 23 years different ayat came at different times. And
gibreel Allahi Salam used to tell the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where to put the is and where to put
the different words and the different is and that way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to teach the Sahaba so the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu memorize the Quran like that, and the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu as well. They left things as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took them. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught them that this neurotic loving holla is inshallah to Allah right. And according to some scholars, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also toto Sahaba were to put the surah in the Quran. So even though it cannot screw to the Allah might have different verses of the Quran. But according to some scholars, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam told the Sahaba where to put it and they had to follow what he taught them. So for example, he taught them that surah to fatty hair comes first and similar to the Alex comes in the last years, and that is what they did they follow the instruction. Why? Because the Quran is whose words last words is from Allah. So the Quran has to be how Allah subhanho wa Taala wants it to be. So I hope that answers your question. Yeah, Khadija, okay. Now, in Ramadan week on the first day we discussed the virtues of Ramadan, and the second day we discussed the virtues of fasting on the third day we discussed the virtues of the poor and very good Well then, today we want to discuss the virtues of
the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Remember, in our first episode, we discussed that Allah creates what he wants, and he gives a special importance to certain things over other things. So Allah created all the nights of the year. And then he told us that a lot of chose the first the last 10 nights of Ramadan, and he made those last 10 nights the best of all nights, isn't it? And then we said out of these 10 nights, Allah subhanho wa Taala he chose one night and he made it the best of all the nights and that is the night in which the Quran was revealed known as later to the day we're going to study the virtues of the last 10 nights of Ramadan insha Allah and lay the terracotta and before
that ultimate inshallah is going to recite for us is going to come close inshallah, and audibly loudly. He's going to come closer, come closer here. Excellent. He's going to recite for us surah two other inshallah, go ahead and read
had MMA fighter Mashallah that was quite a long breath in one of the
Villa barakallahu. Li, Allah bless you and bless all the children of the oma me. So ashmit Masha Allah, someone asked the other day, how old are the children? And I told you all in the first episode, but you might have forgotten we have Khadija was three years old, Masha Allah. Allah was 10 years old. He is the eldest, and he needs to be the guide for the rest of his siblings for his brother and sister. And we have Ahmed Masha Allah who is in the middle of Abdullah and Khadija and he is seven years old at hamdulillah. All right, so Allah says in about that about Lady Gaga, Allah says in an zelner, who feel a little closer and I explained this to you yesterday, that Allah Nia is
telling us that Allah revealed the Quran, from the low hammer, the preserved tablet, to the house of honor on the first Heaven, on which right Laila to conquer Salah telling us that Allah sent the Quran down or later to cut up. Then Allah says one other accomodated ricotta madaraka Marina to Qatar, what will make you understand and realize how amazingly
what will make you understand it's so amazing what can make you understand this and Allah tells us this in the Quran, to make us think and to
to gather our attention, so we pay attention, right, Alex Talley gonna tell us something amazing. Salah says we reveal the journey a little further. And what will make you understand how amazing later to Qatar is when you hear this thinking? You start focusing you want to hear what Allah is gonna say next. Allah says Laila to recovery Hi, Roman elfish. Haha, the night of other, which is in the last 10 nights of Ramadan is better than 1000 months. So panela 1000 months?
How many years is that Ahmed is asking that 1000 months is around 83 years.
And note, Allah didn't say that Laila to the other is equal to 1000 months. He said ladies, Luca is better. Pharaoh better than 1000 months. So 1000 months is just the number in your mind to think wow, hello, one night equals more than 1000 months. 1000 months is a lot how much? Exactly? Allah didn't tell us how much exactly. Allah didn't tell us how much exactly let you imagine that right? Because already 1000 is a lot. Now remember when we discussed new Halley's Salah, we said no. He said I've lived for more than 1000 years. Remember that? More than 1000 years now somebody might be saying, but that's not fair. Because he lived for more than 1000 years. So he could build a super
gigantic Jana because he had more time. How long are we going to defer? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that we will live between 60 to 70 years, between average average between 60 and 70 years, some people might get to 100. But some people might only get to 40. Right? So if you balance it, it's between 60 and 70 years, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went back to allow it and he was how old 63 years old. Okay. 63 years old. So imagine
we somebody might say we only can build Jenga for 60 to 70 years, and Noah was built and his people were building gender for over 1000 years. Of course they're gonna have a big agenda. So Allah Subhana Allah, He gave us a little No,
no, we have
already seen the new Alayhi Salam have Laila
Ali Salam have made it to Qatar. No, we have made it to the other. Allah has given the honor of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this special night. Okay. So if you live, let's say you find you catch later to Qatar. Why do I say catch because you have to search for it. And I'll tell you about that just now. Let's say you catch later to other for 10 years, right? 10 years and each let's say each night available other is at three years. Okay? 10 years.
times 83 is 830 years,
right? Let's say you do 20 years, you can times that by two, let's see. 230 years, you times that by three, so to panela we have a chance to build Jenna more than the people who lived for more than 1000 years. But we have to work out every Ramadan, especially in the last 10 nights. We have to search for a little closer by worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala at night I know somebody might say, Please tell us when is the little cottage when is needed to cover I'll tell you just now. Okay, so the first thing is the best nights of the year are the last 10 nights of Ramadan. And the best of the last 10 nights of Ramadan is Laila to Qatar. Now when is needed to Qatar? Well, the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us that any of the last 10 Knights can be laid to cover any of the last nights of Ramadan. So from the 21st night of Ramadan, until the last night of Ramadan, any of these nights can be late to the
The lies asking his laner to gather on the same night every year. We don't know exactly. But some scholars looked at the evidence and some of our teachers, and they told us or some of them had the view that it's on the same night every year.
And from the Sahaba we have someone who said I swear by Allah, it's on the 27th to Nigeria, right. However, when we look at the evidences together, some other scholars said it can be any night of the last 10 nights and each it moves every year from one night to the other night. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to search for it during the last 10 nights, and especially during the odd nights. And this doesn't mean on the eve of the nights, you should not search for it. But this means if you don't have enough strength, if you don't have enough strength to do it, you know to search for it during all the 10 nights then at least during the odd nights,
what an odd nights, the 21st Night of the 23rd night of Ramadan, the 25th night of Ramadan, the 27th night of Ramadan, and the 29th night. So this is half of 10. So if you can do all 10 search for half of the 10 which half the other half.
As I said some scholars say it's fixed some scholars say it moves during the 10th it could be on the even it could be on the odd Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when we look at his teachings, he taught us search foraging the last time in another generation. He taught us search for it during the last seven. In another narration he taught us search for it during the odd nights, right, which means so the scholars looked at all these narrations and they said that this teaches us that data to cover moves every year from 99. So during one year, he said search for it during the last 10 during another year during the last seven because
it was going to be on one of the seven nights right and then in one year he said search for you during the odd nights for that he was going to be during the nights so what we say is the safest way is to search for Laila to ricotta throughout all the 10 nights of Ramadan. You do some special worship during all the 10 nights of Ramadan. But if you can't then make sure you did on the odd nights and if you can't then make sure you catch the 27th night right and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best The reality is we don't know when is needed to cut now someone might say if Laila to look at the resource special Why don't we know when they little countries? The second special night Why
didn't tell us?
Masha Allah Abdullah tells us a lot didn't tell us when. Because if Allah told us When will you sleep every night and only wake up during one night of
wake up for a little company we get more than 1000 1000 months of reward. Right? And Allah wants us to worship him always allows us to grow our agenda more and more and more. If you worship every day, and you catch needed to cover your agenda will be much bigger than a person who only wakes up earlier to conquer and worships Allah. So you write this is one of the reasons but also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Something happened during his time and we learned this from the narration of urban urban assignment. Or better to an assignment. Ravi, a loved one a famous person
Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said that once the during 119 Ramadan, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or during one night during one night we don't know if it was in Ramadan or not. He didn't say that he just kept his his greeting as much to Allah. What's the cat saying?
Oh, he's asking what is the heading? Alright, he just kept asking us what is the heading let's see the cat. Some people want to see the cat Mashallah it just sits in her lesson with a cat these days Mashallah. Keep the cat close, okay. So, are invited to the assignment another level and he says once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came out at night to inform us of Lady Gaga to inform us about the night of the night of power the night of decrease the night of worship. But when he came out, he saw two Muslims quarreling. What is quality mean? arguing? There were as if they were fighting with their words. Someone say something? No, it was like this. No, it was like that a
quarrel and they were arguing. We don't know why. Right. Why do you sometimes quarrel with Abdullah? And I've done sushi recently Koreans have visited? Right. So
I was asking you why was the correlate?
We don't know why they were calling. But they were quarterly. They were arguing. So what happened? A lot took the knowledge away from the mind and the heart of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
He forgot it. Allah made him forget. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I came out to tell you when Layla lukather is, but such and such a person what quarterly? So Allah made me forget you took the news away, however, for your own good search for it during the odd minutes. And in this narration, he mentioned 2927 and 25 means that he would have been on one of those nights, right? So Allah has taught him that here when you
make him forget, because two people were quarreling. What does this teach us boys and girls?
What does this teach us boys and girls? Does a lot like people fighting? No, doesn't like people arguing. No. And if you quarrel and argue with Allah, how do you how do you not help you a lot helps people who are together. A lot helps people who are united. When people play with each other together nicely. They share the things they don't fight, they put a lot of first not the toys first. They liked the toys. They liked the books, they liked the pens, they liked the things, but they know that they like a lot more. And Allah likes it when we share. So they say I like my toy, but I love a lot more. And Allah likes me to share, so I'll share. Right? That's what the law loves. But for
people to fight and Quarrel and say this is my no this is my no it's my turn. No. No, you taking too long and we start
right? So when we start quarreling, Allah doesn't loveless, and especially when we big people. When big people do it, Allah doesn't like it even more. All right. So from a small age, we should practice not arguing, not quarreling. So when we bigger we don't quarrel and we don't argue. Allah Subhana Allah said Laila to Pharaoh Maleficent. Then Allah tells us what also happens during later toccata. Allah tells us to unnecessarily Malaika what rovia is near have begun. But angels come down from the heavens to the earth with the main Angel jabril Elisa.
Elisa Lam is the most special Angel and he used to bring the Quran to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Of course, he likes the Quran, who doesn't like the Quran? She doesn't like the Quran I sent the fit
by so gibreel come down with the angels. And they come down with all the rules that are law reviews on that night. The scholars of Islam teaches that on the night of laser cutter, Allah reveals all the rules for the who's going to be born, who is going to die, who's going to eat, who's going to get a job, who's going to lose their job, whose job is going to change everything who's gonna pass the exams, everything is revealed on that night. Right. This year there's going to be Coronavirus. There's going to this is
gonna happen that is going to happen. All this is revealed during Laila to recover and the angels come down with all these commands that Allah subhanho wa Taala has released and made known to the ancients on the night of power, and decree and virtue, and that's why when we translate data through color, we say it's the night of power and decree because Allah decrees everything that will happen this year. And virtue virtue means it's special because it's better than 1000 months. Whoever worships Allah, they will get the rewards of better than 1000 months but don't forget, like Abdullah said, Masha Allah, even though we don't know it's not all bad, because at least we have a guideline
from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that guideline is in the last 10 nights. So if we worship a line the last 10 nights, as we said, we're going to get even more rewards, okay? So don't be sad that we don't know be peace, we say we don't know. But hamdulillah we can worship Allah more and at least we know we have a chance to find and catch the night. Okay. What should we do during later to Qatar? What should we do?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that we should spend as much of the night awake, not sleeping. And what should we do? We should read Salah, we should recite the Quran, we should make dua to Allah, we should praise Allah by saying to panela Welcome de la la ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar and all the different ways to praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we should pray, we should give charity we should try and do everything that is beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala. But especially we should praise Allah, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever stands the night of Laila to other believing in Allah and believing in the rewards that Allah has promised him
or her ALLAH forgive all this sense. So here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned standing the night so we should pray Salah. Now if you're a small boy, small girl like Mashallah our young learners have we have children from the ages of six to 12 is difficult to stay awake the whole night. So what can you do? Well, you can at least if you sleep at eight o'clock every day, for example, sleep at 830, for example, or in dharmavaram. If you're not reading therapy, because you smoke, let's say you six or seven or eight, at least the last 10 nights of Ramadan, start reading taraweeh this Ramadan, you probably going to read at home with your parents, if the masjid are
closed, no problem. Read with your parents. If you can't read all the rubbish with them, at least read half. Okay? If you 10 years old, 11 years old, 12 years old, make sure you read all the taraweeh with your parents, okay? Or you can even be the email and your parents can follow you. So that's what you can do before you sleep. Because you smoke and you need to sleep. At least you can pray the therapy, then go to sleep. Then what you can do, you can
ask your parents to wake you up to wake you up
half an hour, at least before you normally wake up to eat.
Right? You know, my mom will wake up early in the morning to eat some food so that we can fast it's called Suho. And it's a very special time to eat. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said have to eat at some time because it's Baraka. There's blessings in the food that you eat. And when you do eat a lot, he warns you and it's beloved to Allah because Allah knows that you're doing it because you want to foster a lot of rewards you so tell your parents this Ramadan, during the last 10 nights, normally if you wake us up, for example, at four o'clock in the morning, wake us up at 330 so we can read some Quran and read some salah and so on and so forth to some of our attendees.
Please can I remind you please, can I remind you to be respectful in your chats? Okay, right. We learned how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us to have good character and not to argue. So I'm seeing some of the chats some people are saying things that are not appropriate. It's not related to the lesson we're talking about later to learn about football or Mohammed Salah or anything else. So please be respectful. Okay? Because Allah is watching everything you type, everything you write, and on the day of the AMA, I was gonna ask you about everything you said, and everything you've typed and everything you wrote is what the question is about everything okay? So
please be respectful in the comment box. And for those who are disrespectful, please say sorry, all right. Because if we say sorry, then Allah will forgive us inshallah. Okay.
Some people ask the question, and they said, I look for data to cover every night. How do I know that it was a little cooler.
Now in reality, only Allah knows that sometimes you feel in your heart.
That's Panama this night was special. When I prayed, I just felt like I was in Geneva. I just felt special. Right? But also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us that one of the signs that last night was a little cut up so you only know after the night's finished, there's no clues before, but we have a clue after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that one of the signs that goes later to Qatar is when the sun rises the next day, it rises softly doesn't have raised bright rays and when the sun rises, it has bright rays and when you look at the sun, right, but after a little Mashallah we said lyrical content and the sun came out.
I said the sun rises with the reason I love with the reasonable Sharma. So, one of the signs that it was laid to Qatar is the next day when the sun rises, it rises with a soft light. You can actually look at the sun. It's not too bright with too many raves. Okay, and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best.
Some people get dreams. That's true once during Thank you Abdullah for reminding.
Oh, honey just had one. She had a frog dream. Okay, but let's talk about another dream. Yeah, Khadija was at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Sahaba also dreams that later to Qatar will be in the last seven nights of Ramadan. So they told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the province of Allah for Allah to send them said, all your dreams are matching. So search for a little candle in the last seven nights, right? And sometimes, some pious people, some of our chefs, they have dreams or people have dreams and call them and tell them that to Pamela. Last night, we had a dream that he was able to conquer. And there's so many people who call
them and then they send the message out to say perhaps it was last night because we received many dreams that people felt it was also in the dream that it was a little further. It doesn't matter whether you see a dream or you don't see a tree. You don't need to see a dream to get laser to the cutter. You don't need to see the sun rising to get laser to what's important is that you search for the night and a small boys and small girls you start now Okay, doing a little bit more a better during the last 10 minutes of Ramadan and in your heart. What's your intention? I want to find Laila to cuddle. Okay. Now, the last thing I want to say to my young boys and girls, is the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us that alive judges our actions based on how good we are at the end. That's a mercy from Allah. Right? And that is why insha Allah is a mercy from Allah that He made the most efficient nights of Ramadan the last 10 nights because sometimes the first 10 days of Ramadan, we're not used to fasting we feeling tired, so we sleeping more. Right? And then it makes us sad. We see Subhan Allah Ramadan is already halfway gone. I didn't read so much Quran. I didn't pray so much. Salah you know, I was sleeping most of the time when it was fasting time. I was feeling weak, sociopathic, tries to make you sad, right? She can sometimes can whisper it's not
strong, because now he's chained. Right? But the thoughts come in your mind. So when you think like that, remind yourself that no, Allah is going to judge me, especially based on how strong my last 10 days off from our house from my last night.
So don't be sad and get ready to be the most amazing Muslim in the last 10 days and last nights of Ramadan. Because if your last 10 days and last 10 nights are the strongest, Allah will take those rewards and reward you for your first 10 days and first 10 nights and your second 10 days and your second 10 nights. But this doesn't mean as a hermit is telling us that we should just play around during the first 10 second 10 right. It doesn't mean that we should say let's play Xbox and let's just play we Nintendo Wii and let's not pray for an
says we can't say less. don't pray for it. Just pray play. we flip. No, it doesn't mean you should play around in the first 10 seconds and you must try your best. Okay, but be even more back in the last 10 of Ramadan. That's what we say. Okay. All right, brothers and sisters in Islam, my young boys and my young girls. This brings us to the end of today's lesson. And that means that tomorrow we have our last lesson in terms of this installment of the little learners hub.
