My dear brothers and sisters, indeed all praises belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala for bringing us together virtually to learn from some of the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam associated with the night of power laylat ricotta.

00:01:40--> 00:01:45

For me here in Melbourne, Australia, this is where I'm spending most of Ramadan this year.

00:01:47--> 00:01:52

We are on the verge of completing the 15th night of Ramadan

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

right which means we have almost begun the next half of Ramadan.

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

We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us Baraka in the remaining days of this great month and especially the remaining nights of this great month, because indeed, the last 10 nights away to us. And those nights are considered the best nights of the entire year. And indeed in these best nights of the entire year is the best night of the entire year. And that is the night of power May Allah subhanho wa Taala decree upon us witnessing that night and we Allah subhanho wa Taala decree upon us worship better than 1000 months. I mean, I mean

00:02:43--> 00:03:34

the topic for today is the night of power. And the night of power is so special that it has a dedicated surah in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala says Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem in Tanzania who feel a little cuddle woman, Dora Kamali that will come later to the country Hiram in alpha, Tennessee Wilma ecotour rojava is in Europe be him in Cali, Mr. Solomon had macular ephedra. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in zelner, who Indeed, We revealed the score and feel a little caught up in the night of power, feel a little caught up in the night of power. Why is the night of power called the night of power? Well, it is the night in which Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

makes manifest His divine power.

00:03:39--> 00:03:45

For scholars Rahmatullah here I let him say that on this site, Allah revealed the Quran

00:03:46--> 00:03:49

and only the old powerful can do this.

00:03:51--> 00:04:06

Now, someone might say, wasn't the Quran revealed over a period of 23 years? How is it that it was revealed on the night of power but we know the prophethood of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was 23 years long. How is it that

00:04:07--> 00:04:34

the Quran was revealed on the night of power and revealed over the period of 23 years? And in answer to the question I was called as teachers, the teaching of Indian ambassador of the Allahu anhu made the famous Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the famous knowledgeable Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They teach us that Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the Quran on the night of power to the first heaven

00:04:36--> 00:04:40

in its entirety, to a place known as the house of honor,

00:04:41--> 00:04:44

the house of honor. And

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

from this house on the first heaven, the Quran came down to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam over the course of 23 years, so this is the answer to that question. Now, Allah says

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

Laila to Qatar and we've said that it's called the night of power because a manifestation of the power of Allah Almighty takes place firstly in the fact that the Quran was revealed. And then because Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards his slaves with a reward greater than 1000 months meaning He rewards his slaves with a reward better than 83 years of worship. Right. Now you and I all know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the lifespan of this ummah is between 60 and 70 years 60 and 70 years. This is the lifespan of this.

00:05:40--> 00:05:46

And we know that the previous nations lived for hundreds of years we know that Lu Hara he

00:05:48--> 00:05:53

lived for hundreds of years. Allah tells us in the Quran,

00:05:54--> 00:05:58

the lifespan of Lu alayhis salam

00:06:00--> 00:06:02

and the other prophets

00:06:04--> 00:06:04

enjoyed

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

longer years as well than the average years of the Ummah for sudo la sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam and the Prophet himself sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:06:17--> 00:06:28

It is from the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala and assign that Allah does what he wants when he wants how he wants to Pena who utter Allah, that he decreed that yes, the

00:06:29--> 00:06:40

lifespan of this omens between 60 and 70 years. But even though Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed that this only gets a night in which if they catch it,

00:06:41--> 00:07:33

and intend Allah subhanho wa Taala sincerely, and revive it, having great hope in the reward that Allah subhanho wa Taala has promised that Allah will give them a bag worth more than 83 years. Imagine this. If you caught a little tiger for 10 years of your life. That means you have acquired more than 830 years of worship, worship better than 830 years. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And this might be your brothers and sisters, if we really think about it, we will understand how merciful Allah subhanho wa Taala is and how generous Allah subhanho wa Taala is Panama that is telling us that look, you worship for 60 to 70 years. And I will give you a worship the potential to be worth

00:07:34--> 00:08:17

1000s of years 1000s of years, years, far more in number than the previous nations that existed years, far more in number than the generations before that lived for 950 years and lived for 1000 years and so on and so forth. Right? This is a this is a generous gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we need to understand, you know, when Allah sees the night of power, it indeed is a manifestation of Allah Almighty, the all powerful doing what he wants, how he wants, when he wants to panda who were to Allah, He gives a precedence to him, he wills and he creates everything in creation. Thus he created the home of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and blessed this oma with this night, and

00:08:17--> 00:09:02

only Allah subhanho wa Taala could give this oma this night and nobody else. So we see the divine power of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Firstly, as well as the divine generosity of Allah, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying, only worship for 63 years and you have the potential to ascertain and acquire worship far greater than 1000s of years, once the other nations if they lived for 1000 years, they had to worship for that entire period, to look at the mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala upon some people say, you know, we wish we had more years to live. We wish we had more years to live other nations lived for hundreds of years. And our own, the average is 60 to 70. And my question to

00:09:02--> 00:09:22

my dear brothers and sisters is which is better living for 1000 years, and not knowing the level of your worship or the ability to acquire the worship of 1000 years, or living for 60 to 70 years, and having the ability to do worship greater than those who live for 1000s of years? Well, ah, he living life is tough. Living life is tough.

00:09:23--> 00:09:29

You know, and it's not tough because things are expensive. And it's tough because,

00:09:30--> 00:09:39

you know, because of the way life has become the hustle and bustle of life and children and vice and so on and so forth. Right? It's tough because sometimes

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

we endeavor and try to live our life, earning Allah subhanho attackers pleasure today. We could have enjoyed Allah subhanho wa Taala His pleasure or attained the last panel who attended pleasure but who knows about tomorrow Tomorrow we could do something else will not protect us will not forgive us. We don't

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

know if we will die upon Eman. This factor alone should worry us and cause us to think and cause us to ponder and cause us to worry. Right? And if we thought about the reality of life really, in the way

00:10:14--> 00:10:57

I just described, then I don't think anyone would actually feel that they wanted to live the life of 1000 years, right? Where every day you wake up and you got to push through fighting SharePoint fighting temptation, fighting your desires, this vise around you you fighting against yourself being affected by the vise. We live in a world that desensitizes us to a lot of heroin, right? There's heroin that would be considered major with the people before us, but you and I, it's just something normal because we have societies that desensitize evil desensitize heroin. It's tough. You know, a Muslim needs to understand why life is tough. It's not tough because of expenses and so on and so

00:10:57--> 00:11:37

forth. Yes, that makes life tough. But what makes life truly tough is when you have to fight every day to look after your Eman to look after a man to die upon Islam. So you gain the perpetual happiness that Allah subhanho wa Taala has on the person who does so. So if you understand life like this, my dear brothers and sisters, nobody would wish to live for 1000 years, and you would really appreciate a must mercy and look after this gift which Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us a little cutter that's upon Allah, we have the abilities to work only a little, but get rewards far greater than those who lived for 1000s of years. So little effort, but rewards far greater indeed this is an

00:11:37--> 00:12:15

honor from Allah subhanho wa Taala he has honored as Allah subhanho wa Taala has honored us and he's gifted us and this night deserves Great thanks. We need to thank Allah we need to praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we need to thank him, we need to praise him we need to exalt Him. We need to recognize this as a mighty gift. Right? Just like when a person gives you a gift, such an expensive gift what happens you feel indebted, you feel indebted you you want to keep on thanking the person you you end up loving the person born and you can't wait to reciprocate. You can't wait to give them a gift. Right? Or you can't wait for them to visit you one day so you can be in the hitmen service.

00:12:15--> 00:12:27

This is human nature. Now imagine a divine gift as mighty as Laila to Carter better than 1000 months better than 83 years of worship. And notice the term better or worse is mean alpha.

00:12:29--> 00:13:06

Alpha better than 1000 months, not 1000 months equivalent worth of worship but better than 1000 months meaning it's unknown. It's unknown it could be worship was a million man Subhana Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon on Eva. Allah subhanho wa Taala as I was called to say, on this night and this is one of the reasons why they say it's collated together the night of power. They say that Allah subhanho wa Taala on this night makes the decrees of the year known to the angels who are in charge of the different processes and different tasks. Allah says

00:13:08--> 00:13:51

fee how you Faruk. kulu ambreen Hakeem, right, and Sora to the heart, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that on this night, Allah subhanho wa Taala exposes the decrees for this year to the angels who are in charge of the various tasks that they have. So the sustenance for people is, is released to them who will be born, who will pass away How many children will pass away in the fetus of their mother, how many will grow up healthy, how many will become ill, the extent of the illnesses, everything is released on the night of power is made manifest. We know everything is written on the preserved tablet, known as the low food everything was was written there 50,000 years before the heavens and

00:13:51--> 00:14:30

the earth was created. But on the night of power, obviously, the knowledge of low fodmap foods, it's only worth Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah then chooses to review from it when he wills and how he will subhanho wa Taala and to who he wills. So a lot of the snake reviews from a local food to the angels and lets them know, the decrees for this year. And as I said, the people who will be born and pass away and the levels of sustenance they will have and health and sickness and so on and so forth. So on this particular night, this is what happens as well. And this is indeed a mighty powerful event and happening. Thus the night is also called Laila to Qatar in Angela who feel a

00:14:30--> 00:14:45

little lighter. Indeed we reviewed the Quran in the night of power. Indeed, We revealed the Quran in the night of power. we've explained what is meant by the revelation of the Quran and we've explained what is meant by the night of power. Allah says, Who am I?

00:14:47--> 00:14:49

And what will make you understand

00:14:50--> 00:14:53

the reality of this night the audacity of this night.

00:14:55--> 00:14:57

The magnanimous nature of this night

00:14:59--> 00:14:59

what will make us

00:15:00--> 00:15:11

Understand, Allah subhanho wa Jalla uses this style in the Quran, to grab our attention to grab our attention and make us really ponder over this amazing event.

00:15:12--> 00:15:18

For example, when Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about pm Allah says Allah paria Mel Correa,

00:15:19--> 00:15:28

Iraq Amal Korea, one of the names of tm is Al paria. Allah says what matter Kemal Korea, what will make you understand the extent the level

00:15:31--> 00:15:46

the nature of the Day of Judgment, what will make you understand it? Right. It's not in your ability to understand it. So Panama, that's how mighty the day is. That's how scary the day is. That's how just the day will be no one will escape.

00:15:47--> 00:16:13

What will make you understand what Laila through Qatar is, beyond your ability to comprehend some highlights so mighty? Allah says later to look at the behavioral Maleficent room in alpha Sha, Allah is talking to our intellect. Allah is saying, you know, 1000 to be a great number, here you go. It's better than it's about 1000 nights, it's better than 1000 nights. When a person hears 1000 they say wow, Subhan Allah 1000 that is so much.

00:16:14--> 00:16:23

So Allah releases a figure. We don't have the ability to comprehend it. But Allah wants to bring the matter closer to our mind. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:16:24--> 00:17:08

It's better than 1000 nights. Then once you are in awe of having worship of 1000 nights understand that it's even better than that. And better is unknown. It could be 10,000 nights, it could be better than 100,000 nights, it could be better than 1 million nights, 10 million nights. 100 million nights, a billion nights, a trillion nights, right? Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. This is a message from Allah. He's kept it hidden. He's told us to act and he will reward us insha Allah and the reward is a surprise for us on the day of me Allah subhanho wa Taala surprises diligently on the day of me. I mean, Allah says on this night, Allah tells us some of the happenings on this night

00:17:09--> 00:17:31

tells us to allow us to appreciate further how great this night is. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us some amazing events that happen Allah says Xs general mela aka the angels descends on to the earth. What rojava and with them is jabril Allah, his Salah, the king of all angels,

00:17:33--> 00:17:36

the head of the angels,

00:17:37--> 00:17:53

Allah subhanho wa Taala says turnersville Mela iica roofie ha be easily European be him. They do this with the permission of the Lord. They've done it because they've been instructed by Allah. Given the nature of this night.

00:17:54--> 00:18:22

Allah has instructed something different, they do something different. And as our scholars teach us from the sooner that on the night of power, there's more angels on earth. There's more angels on earth than there are stones on this earth to hang on. To Hannah Allah. Allahu Akbar, right. So Allah says on this night Alliance instructs the angels to descend, and this again teaches us the so many angels this teaches us how mighty Allah subhanho wa Taala is.

00:18:23--> 00:18:30

Tennis is equal to a rojava be ignorant, be him mean Kalia Solomon, he had

00:18:31--> 00:18:59

its peace all the way till the federal prayer. Not just any piece, but the special piece, a piece synonymous with Laila to Qatar. So this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala has taught us in the Quran, my dear brothers and sisters regarding Laila to Qatar and the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala has an entire an entire surah about Laila to Qatar.

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

This should be enough to make us understand how mighty This night is. However statement of our best hope the Allahu anhu man he says Ellery better to be her hero means a better TV Alfie Shahar. NBC Amina, how do you help me? Lady her? He says even our best

00:19:18--> 00:19:56

Allah subhanho wa Taala says that this night carries reward better than 1000 nights. Allah subhanho wa Taala means that these 1000 nights are what is considered to be better than 1000 nights, right? Or the work of 1000 nights refers to a person spending all of these nights in worship and fasting all of its day Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Imagine imagine at three years of fasting the entire day and standing up the entire night. Imagine that my dear brothers and sisters, how mighty is this?

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

83 years fasting

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

Every single day,

00:20:02--> 00:20:48

and in some countries people are fasting 21 hours, right? So let's take their circumstance, you fasting 21 hours every single day for 83 years, and standing every single night in prayer. Let's take, for example, a country like Australia where I am at right now right now it's, it's half past 12 in the morning going for 1am. Okay, where I am, and the nights here alone. The night here starts from about 5:15pm and finishes at 6am. Right so over 12 hours is the night. So let's take this night for example. So let's say a person spends 83 years for 21 hours of the day they fast. And let's say they spend the entire night 12 hours of the night in worship.

00:20:50--> 00:20:53

Right We take some of the longest fasts and some of the longest nights.

00:20:54--> 00:21:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying he will give us worship better than 83 years and the type of worship is the worship of a person who spends the whole day fasting and the whole 19 prayer Allahu Akbar, Allah. So it's not 83 years of mediocre worship. It's rewards better than 83 years of excellent worship. This is another amazing point that you and I need to comprehend of how mighty the rewards are for this night for Allahu Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses with this night You know, I'm speaking to you right now. I'm feeling excited. I'm feeling like Superman, I can't wait. Allahu Akbar. May Allah bless us all, I mean, me.

00:21:32--> 00:21:34

Now, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:21:36--> 00:21:48

what is expected of us in these nights? Well, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said what is expected of us is to revive the night, believing in one Allah,

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

believing that Allah has

00:21:52--> 00:21:56

recommended this and believing that Allah

00:21:58--> 00:22:23

has given us this night and believing that Allah will reward us for this night and having good hope that Allah will accept our worship. This is what is needed from us. All these elements is needed from us with regards to this night for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said men Parma Laila Takada, Eamon and yt. Seven, Eamon de seven, who fear Allah whom Allah

00:22:24--> 00:22:28

Subhana Allah, that the one who stands the night of power.

00:22:30--> 00:22:40

Believing in a line believing in his promise, was the seven and having good hope that Allah has accepted what he's done. He's not doubting it. He didn't

00:22:41--> 00:23:16

divide the night and then doubt what Allah accepted from me won't accept it from me. No, absolutely not. He revived it and he had good hope that Allah has accepted it from me, who fear Allah who met them among them be all his sins, his previous sins will be forgiven, all his previous sins will be forgiven. La ilaha illa Allah imagine this, Allah will forgive your previous sins indeed this is a great mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, many ask when is the night of power when is Laila to Qatar?

00:23:17--> 00:23:57

With regards to Villa to Qatar, my dear brothers and sisters, we have many generations we have many generations from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam some narrations teach us that Layla is on the 27th night. Some narrations teach us that Layla through kezar is on the last seven nights some narrations teach us that Laila to father is during the odd nights, and some durations teach us the Laila to Qatar is during the last 10 months, right. And there's no contradiction here. Because it is easy to fathom and comprehend. That Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked these questions at different times. And it could have been at different points in Ramadan. So Rasulullah salallahu

00:23:57--> 00:24:37

alayhi wa sallam would advise people based on the days of Ramadan. And based on the time that the question was asked, it could have been asked in the last seven days, and so on and so forth. But no doubt, the last or the odd days of the narrations that talk about the odd nights has a special and unique relevance and also a lot of the narrations focusing on the 27th night which gives it a lot of uniqueness and focus. But my dear brothers and sisters, as I was calling say, that for you to be blessed to catch the 27th night there has to be that effort from yourself throughout all the nights, and no doubt going through all the nights is safer, because the scholars say that the correct

00:24:37--> 00:24:59

opinion is the Laila to further moves from night to night with every year. Allah chooses the night that he wishes later to cuddle to be. And as some scholars say, that we know that fasting or different countries start their fast different times. So a person who looks after all 10 nights is indeed safe, is indeed safe. So this is what we should do brothers and sisters.

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

We should strive throughout the last 10 nights from the 21st of Ramadan, for the first night, up to the 30th night, the last 10 nights of Ramadan. And don't be from those who start off strong. And then the 27th night reaches and then we just relax. We forget about the 28th night, and we forget about the 29th night. And if there's a 30th night we forget about the 30th night don't let that happen. Search for it every night during the last two nights of Ramadan. Search for it online, you will never get lost, you will never waste time worshiping Allah. So it's not a tough ask. Right? It's not a tough as just 10 months of the year to apply yourself is not a difficult task, we know

00:25:42--> 00:26:07

that the Knights have to go into the hundreds, what's 10 nights dedicated to Allah subhanho wa Taala when the rewards are greater than 83 years of worship, the rewards are far greater than any effort you can put even if you opted to worship of love this way throughout the year, the rewards are far greater than that even we're talking 83 years of worship. What's 10 nights when the reward is a reward better than worship

00:26:09--> 00:26:17

that spans more than 83 years. So I hope you're catching the picture. My dear brothers and sisters we have not granted the understanding. Another question that we asked about a little cutter is

00:26:18--> 00:26:37

what are the signs of Laila to Qatar? What are the signs of Laila to Qatar? How do we know that you know the night that we witnessed could have been denied? And the answer to that question, I was called as teachers from the student of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam many science, there are many signs.

00:26:38--> 00:26:40

And these signs

00:26:42--> 00:26:52

are clear after the night has passed. So for example, while most of the signs are after the night has passed, there is a sign for example, which states that you find

00:26:54--> 00:27:18

the night having a moderate temperature, it's not too cold, and it's not too hot. This is from the signs from the signs is that you have a soft sunrise, which doesn't have vibrant rays. It's a very soft sunrise, the peaceful content, sunrise, right, this is also from the signs of the night of power.

00:27:20--> 00:28:04

So these are some of the teachings of the scholars regarding the signs of the light of power. There are other teachings that some people have said, but these teachings are questionable because they really don't have evidence which is of a substantial level to advocate or to to support, the view being relevant, but what we do know in terms of relevance is having a moderate night and having a soft sunrise. This is mentioned in several a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from amongst those that witness the night of power. So how do we ensure that we can actually catch the night of power? What can we do to actually catch the light of power?

00:28:04--> 00:28:41

And in answer to that question, our scholars refer to La La him. And our current teachers, every the home Allah, they teach us many elements, they teach us things that will help us achieve the night of power. And they say that for us to catch the night of power, you have to be diligent from the beginning of the day. Right? It all begins with your day, having a strong day ensures having a strong night. And having a strong night is a means for having a strong day. So basically, first and foremost, you should observe the sooner a fragile

00:28:42--> 00:28:55

right after performing a perfect will do, and you should observe your selective ledger. And if you can in congregation then it should be in congregation, especially for the males. And then you should

00:28:57--> 00:29:16

remember Allah subhanho wa Taala until sunrise. And then after the sunrises observe the Serato or the celestial rock. If you perform the Salah immediately after sunrise, then it's a shock. And if you delay it a bit then it's too hard. In any case, you observe the HRF

00:29:18--> 00:29:58

and there's great rewards for doing this the person who observed so that then Allah subhanho wa Taala will give him the reward of every bone in his body giving a sada Subhana Allah imagine that we would every bone in your body giving sadaqa and as you remember Allah subhanho wa Taala after fudger till sunrise, be sure to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala completing the morning invocations because the morning invocations assist us in being great during our day. It assist us against the evil of ourselves. It assists us against the whispers of Shabbat. It's a good practice to have and in the

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

Afghans

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

Or invocations of the morning. We see invocations that assist us against being lazy. And we see invocations that are a means of us being forgiven. And we know that our sins are a means of preventing us from achieving our True Potential, right. So we offer these invocations of the day. In fact, in the invocation of the day, is the invocation where we say la ilaha illAllah de la sharika, the whole mucuna will have the who Allah cliche and in the invocations of the morning we have Subhana Allah who will be happy, and sola, sola Allahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us that the one who does these invocations 100 times in a day, then no one will come to a loss of Hannah who attend on

00:30:43--> 00:31:18

the Day of Judgment with the deeds better than the deeds of this person. This person who recited these invocations 100 times a day imagine that my dear brothers and sisters, and then the Hadith says the only person who will have more as a person who did more, the only person who has more is a person who did more Subhana Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala always make us remember to recite the implications of the morning. So you pay your son out of surgery, you prayed your ledger, you waited till sunrise during that period, you did the invocations of the morning, then you prepare the selection. And then you went about your day, you know, looking after the home or going to work or

00:31:18--> 00:31:56

going to school. And every moment you got you kept your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala until the time of the hub, when the time of the hurricane, you perform the function of the heart before the Lord salah and you prayed the vote of salah and after Salah you prayed the to sadhana, right and then you went about your day again, keeping your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah lowering your gaze speaking a good language looking after the Islamic morals, manners and etiquette so you having a brilliant day. And then as it comes you observe your selected officer if you can with Gemma you did with Gemma and especially for the males, and then you

00:31:56--> 00:32:22

move on to Maverick now you fasting and we know that the alpha person fasting is accepted. So you make dua to Allah and you ask Allah to make the night that is going to come if it is the right of helical cutter to make up from amongst those that witness tonight and you ask Allah to assist you in worshipping him throughout the night. And you ask Allah to give you health to give you strength you make dua to Allah because it always starts with so you make dr to Allah subhanho wa Taala right.

00:32:23--> 00:33:00

And then you observe the star after the star you try your best if you're at the masjid, you need to rock out after the event as was the famous practice of the Sahaba of the Allahu Allah regimen and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never prevented it. Or if you entered the message, you pray to the character here to mesquite and you wait for the Imam then the Imam comes in. He reads the mother of a prayer and you read them every prayer with him or if you're at home, you read them every prayer after Maghrib. And by the way after every Salah this invocations, right you know that after every Salah is invocations, after Salah, and now I have the law, there's apps you can actually

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

download an app and a car app or a history Muslim app. And these apps actually have in them the two hours after salah and the draft the morning and the throughout the evening and so on and so forth, right? So you look after all your car after Salah, the same thing you do after you read us car after Maghrib and then you go on to read us car of the evening. right that's kind of the evening assimilate to the morning the slight differences. So the same car and rewards that I mentioned to you from the morning, you have them in the evening as well including the do asking Allah to protect you from all harm and asking Allah to grant you a stent and protect you from being lazy. This is

00:33:40--> 00:34:18

also in in this thicker so you can actually perform the asker of the evening after acid. But if you haven't been performed after malherbe then you have your meal. When you have your meal don't eat too much. Because if you eat too much it's going to make you sleepy and prevent you from spending the night diligently in Allah subhanho wa Taala as worship and then you go for selective Asia you read it with the Imam of the sisters at home, you read it at home and then you observe the scar after Sunnah and the tarawih and you complete the Salah with the map. If a hamdulillah you live in a community where the perform the pm you can stay in the masjid if you can do a decaf in the last 10

00:34:18--> 00:34:44

nights of Ramadan. This is excellent. This is better. If you can't, then you try your best to do some of the nights. But what you must do after Isha when you getting home from taraweeh right? You should try and give us give us an even if it's $1 give a sadaqa even if it's $1 give us because if it is the night of power allow we'll make that $1

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

allowable will make it equivalent to 80 or better than 83 years of charity Subhana Allah Subhan Allah Allah will take that one right and accept it on a night which is better than 83 years of work.

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

So Pamela, you mentioned that my dear brothers and sisters so after you Tara we give us Don't forget, especially during the odd nights, especially during the odd nights, right? So give you a soda then come home and rest a little bit, get some strength and then wake up and worship online and reading the Quran and the uscar and some more 211 Sunnah and so on and so forth. And if you live in a community that has am at the masjid then go for pm and be in JAMA and read the pm in JAMA and worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and try to align your sujood and ask Allah for his treasures and ask Allah all your your wishes and all your your hopes and all your dreams, ask Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:35:44--> 00:36:24

and this is how we have an amazing last 10 nights of Ramadan. And Allah if you do this for 10 nights, and your day is strong, and this practice is going on and on over the course of 10 days. This is a good chance that insha Allah even after Ramadan, you will continue with a lot of this hair, and a lot of this goodness. So this is some advice on how you and I should try and spend this day, you know, especially giving this charity we're lucky. It's so little I mean, one who you know everyone can afford $1 inshallah just $1 so we say $1 a night 10 nights $10. But imagine that $1 hits a night, which is better than 83 years of worship. Imagine what charity you've given Allahu

00:36:24--> 00:36:41

Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Imagine that my dear brothers and sisters, right? So don't belittle any good, right? Even for those who are married, I say go home smile to each other. A smile is a sadhaka that said that if it catches the night of power, it will be a sadaqa quote on a night better than 83 years of worship.

00:36:42--> 00:37:20

So smile to your wife, smile to your husband, smile to your kids, smiling is a sadaqa smile for the sake of Allah. And for the fact that presumes that Allahu alayhi wa sallam said that, that one smile in the face of his brother is a southern. Right. So these are some of the advices brothers and sisters before we end today's session, I also advise you all to sit down with your children and teach them about to ricotta, no matter how young they are, teach them a little bit, you know, to their capacity to the ability to understand, teach them about this night. And it's special, so that they grow up for the rest of their lives knowing that you know what my mother taught me this, my

00:37:20--> 00:37:58

father taught me this. And perhaps when they catch the night as well, it will be sadaqa jariya for us, for the parents who taught them once the parents are alive. And even after the parents pass away. Imagine that Pamela, indeed alized or merciful and Allah subhanho wa Taala can give us this reward that perhaps our children strive after us to catch this night. And Allah will reward us the rewards of layer two together because we taught them we taught them about layer two. And the importance of this man so this is a point to note as well. My dear brothers and sisters, it's always good talking to you or here in knowledge International University, in our state of the art virtual

00:37:58--> 00:38:41

classroom. It's always it's not always easy speaking to a computer screen when you can't hear your audience around you and it is almost 1am here in Melbourne, Australia. So with that insha Allah there's some points that we've taken, asked you to make do And for me, especially you know my name will hamdulillah make dua for me specially that Allah subhanho wa Taala showers mercy upon me and except for me as well. And you all my beloved students are in line and I always remember you in my daughter and I am looking forward to the next academic term that begins in sha Allah in October or just after October and looking forward to being with you all, seeing you grow moving on to your next

For the times when we didn't know our gaze will not forgive us for our mistakes, especially that which was most definitely unintended.
