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

Alhamdulillah nada, who want to stay in ohana so

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

now the Villa haematuria, fusina sejahtera Marina via de la forma de la la Hama, Euclid, aloha de la, Chateau La la la la la la sharika was shot Russia and Mohammedan Abu rasuluh salvati while he was talking he was number two steam and because he wanted I am with Dean and my bad. We praise along we seek his assistance and his forgiveness. We seek refuge in a law from the evil of ourselves and our bad deeds. Whoever a lot guys, there's none that can lead him astray. And whoever allowed leads to stray and there's no guides for him. I testified that there is no deity in truth worthy of worship except for Allah Subhana who was anna and i further testify that Mohammed bin Abdullah Saleh

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

it was seldom his his slave and messenger brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:01:03--> 00:01:05

Before beginning with the talk today,

00:01:07--> 00:01:12

it is important that we recognize the favor of a loss of Hannah who will China upon us all

00:01:14--> 00:01:16

is a blessing that Allah subhana wa tada

00:01:17--> 00:01:24

has allowed us to gather here today, there are many other things that we could be doing that we could be busying ourselves with.

00:01:26--> 00:01:29

And if it wasn't for loss of data, we would not have been guided.

00:01:30--> 00:01:34

We would not have prayed. We would not have fasted this month.

00:01:35--> 00:01:38

But the loss of Hannah who was out of favor does

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

and guided us to those things.

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

And he blessed us with Islam.

00:01:45--> 00:02:00

And Islam is a great blessing. Indeed. Many of us who did not grow up with that blessing may recognize the virtue of Islam, perhaps more than some who always been Muslim, and no doubt.

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

The Prophet it is Salatu was Salam said kulu moulden. EULA do alpha for every person is born upon the fedora, and the fedora is Islam.

00:02:13--> 00:02:35

So there is no doubt that we were all born Muslims in that sense. But the Prophet sallallahu wasallam went on to say, forever Wow, who you holy, then he will you not see Ronnie, he will emerge. He said, however, his parents and he turned him into a Jew or a Christian, or imagine.

00:02:37--> 00:02:50

And notice that the prophets I saw them did not say or turn him into a Muslim, because every mo lewd every child is born upon the fedora. And this Fedora so that we understand,

00:02:51--> 00:02:56

is made up of two components. There's the fifth era

00:02:58--> 00:03:00

of servitude of obedience.

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

And there is the fifth era

00:03:04--> 00:03:10

of worshipping Allah alone, meaning that Eliza gel has created every human being

00:03:12--> 00:03:18

with the inclination to worship Him alone. It's important that we understand this point.

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

However,

00:03:23--> 00:03:45

a person may come based on his parents, his teachers, society, the environment, and he may become something else other than one who worships Allah Subhana who wants to add alone. However, the first component of the Fitzwater does not change. And that is that every human being is going to worship something.

00:03:47--> 00:03:58

Every human being because it's part of your DNA servitude is part of the DNA of the human being. So the human being is going to worship something if they are not worshiping Allah azza wa jal alone

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

and they are going to worship something that is created.

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

Whether that be

00:04:06--> 00:04:07

Isa is a lamb,

00:04:08--> 00:04:10

or another prophet,

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

or a saint,

00:04:13--> 00:04:46

or a man made system, such as capitalism, or communism, or maybe he is a slave to consumerism. But the point is he points of worship something a lot of our data set into men itself other areas, ILA Hahaha, I mean, I see the one who takes his own lust and whims, his whims and desires as his ILA as his ILA. So everybody is going to worship something.

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

It is not until that worship is directed to Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, until we love him as a job until a person fears him hopes in him

00:05:00--> 00:05:14

Reward puts his trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. It is not until then, that the human being will have true dignity and live a life that is fulfilling a life that leads to happiness and success.

00:05:15--> 00:05:18

And for this reason, the great scholar

00:05:19--> 00:05:26

of contemporary times a shake up the rock man Vanessa city, who many of you may have heard of what they call tip series said.

00:05:28--> 00:05:39

That great Imam, he said woman out let me fall by Ed Janya to heat and who you have real lab the min Rick will mock up

00:05:40--> 00:05:55

from the greatest virtues of tawheed to worship Allah alone to single out allies to a joke for your worship. From the greatest virtues of that is that it frees you from bondage to anything else.

00:05:57--> 00:06:02

When Allah azza wa jal is your master, you don't have another master.

00:06:05--> 00:06:15

When Allah azza wa jal when that master tells you for example, that it is impermissible to drink intoxicants.

00:06:17--> 00:06:29

And then another master comes along and says you won't be able to climb the corporate ladder unless you rub elbows with this person and that person and in order to do so you need to hang out with them at the club you need to

00:06:30--> 00:06:40

which master will you will you obey. If you obey Allah subhana wa tada alone It will free you from being a slave to anything else.

00:06:41--> 00:06:58

What time Looky there he goes on to say you have to leave a lab that men brittleness, looky looky be him, Well hopefully him What a J. And it keeps you from being attached to other than a loss of power to add in hoping and other than Allah in fearing other than Allah

00:06:59--> 00:07:38

will actually add him in doing what you do for other than Allah it frees you from that will have the who will is a hockey and this is true honor. This is real honor was shut off will alley and the most superior form of dignity is with brothers and sisters in Islam if we want true honor, and true dignity and this life. It comes by worshipping Allah Subhana who would stand alone It comes from to heat comes to Islam, worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala the way that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instructed us

00:07:41--> 00:07:48

now this is just a reminder and for the talk, but it is the most important reminder

00:07:49--> 00:07:50

and

00:07:51--> 00:08:07

Allah subhana wa tada said in the Quran with a kid in the decra temporalmente remind because the reminder benefits the believer by what I what sort of this there is

00:08:11--> 00:08:20

so rich is there yet what that cave remind them because the reminder benefits the believer what's the next I

00:08:25--> 00:08:51

will merge, Alex will Gina will insert Dahlia Budo and I have not created Jenny mankind except to worship me. Yeah, and remind them of this fact. Remind them that they have only been created for that purpose of worshiping Allah Subhana who would add and don't allow any of the anything else to come in between you and the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:53--> 00:08:54

That being said,

00:08:55--> 00:09:18

on this journey of worshipping Allah subhana wa Tada. We often fall short and we make mistakes, and sometimes not just mistakes, but sometimes we intentionally disobeyed the command of a loss of Hannah who would add falling into major sin at times and at other times since there may be less severe.

00:09:21--> 00:09:22

But Eliza gel is

00:09:24--> 00:09:24

a Rahim.

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

Allah for

00:09:28--> 00:09:45

Allah Halim al Hakim, and he knows of Hannah who was added that we need times to reset. It's almost like you take your computer in and you get it, reformat it. The human being is in need of a reboot from time to time.

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

A time to evaluate what is going on in our lives and Ramadan is one of the best times for that. We need those times when Eliza gel opens the gates of His mercy and we

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

We can be more eager and seeking His forgiveness and gaining the reward that Allah Subhana who was Anna has promised.

00:10:08--> 00:10:18

So Ramadan is one of the best times for that. And Eliza Joe would have led him has blessed us to make it to this month of Ramadan on this 16th day

00:10:20--> 00:10:27

and before talking about the last 10 nights of Ramadan,

00:10:29--> 00:10:36

we really need to look at what may we may consider a bed or understanding a bed.

00:10:37--> 00:10:38

Alarm Eliza gel

00:10:39--> 00:11:00

for those big moments and II of reward of mug fear of being forgiven for your sins, Allah azza wa jal and he gives us an introductory period, if you will. And he's something that leads up to the main event. So for example,

00:11:02--> 00:11:03

have any of you made Hajj before?

00:11:05--> 00:11:14

Show of hands? But what is the greatest day of Hajj, the prophets of light it was sunset, I'll had you out of hedge alpha.

00:11:16--> 00:11:25

Do the Muslims just go straight to alpha? Or is this something prescribed before alpha is the eighth of the hedger

00:11:26--> 00:11:33

Yama, Talia, where the Muslims first assume they run for hedge and they go to Mina

00:11:35--> 00:11:38

and domina what rites of Hajj do they perform?

00:11:42--> 00:11:44

I can't talk for two hours straight so I have to

00:11:45--> 00:11:53

I have to engage. Now, what what acts what rites of Hajj are performed on the eighth of July

00:11:56--> 00:11:58

stegmann is that a rite of Hajj?

00:12:01--> 00:12:05

salvia Okay, there are no rites of Hajj performed on the eighth of

00:12:07--> 00:12:13

the eighth of the ledger. Yes, you are saying the Tobia but if you never said that tell me it's not going to affect your hedge.

00:12:14--> 00:12:29

So there are no rights of the actual hatch that are performed on the eighth of the ledger. So what is the what is one of the any wisdoms behind the eighth of the ledger, it's preparing you for the knife.

00:12:30--> 00:12:34

Yanni the fact that you go now, you assumed

00:12:36--> 00:12:46

Okay, which is uncomfortable for a lot of people, it's not you you're not in your regular clothes, you're making sure you don't expose yourself and you have to get used to that you have to get accustomed today.

00:12:48--> 00:13:19

You get your tongue wet with the remembrance of Allah subhana wa Tada. You're not living in the quarters that you normally live in. So you're staying in a tent, and you're not by yourself, you're with other people. So there's a degree of discomfort and all of that. Okay, but it prepares you. And imagine just going straight from your home to alpha with no preparation. And are you ready to really beg our last panelist, Anna, do you? Are you in? Do you feel it yet? Probably not. And so there's a hikma

00:13:20--> 00:13:33

paying that prescription of the eighth of the ledger to prepare you for that big day, which is often likewise funny. As we move to the

00:13:35--> 00:13:37

last 10 nights of Ramadan

00:13:40--> 00:13:41

there is a preparation

00:13:42--> 00:13:47

that preparation is the first 20 days of Ramadan.

00:13:49--> 00:13:53

And for any body who has done sports or anything in general

00:13:55--> 00:13:56

you know that

00:13:57--> 00:14:01

the preparation is always longer than the actual the actual event.

00:14:02--> 00:14:11

People train for the Olympics. From the day the first Olympics finishes. They start training for the next four years they train for years for one week.

00:14:12--> 00:14:16

You study any all semester for one test.

00:14:17--> 00:14:53

So Allah azza wa jal has given us this time in the first 20 days of Ramadan to prepare for the last 10 nights and it's important that we understand that concept of course all of Ramadan is important. All of Ramadan is important, but there is nothing there is no night that is more important than what night is that little cuddle little cut that is in the last 10 nights of Ramadan is will cover with the learning Ciara. So I want us to understand this point. What how do we use these first 20 days of Ramadan

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

and then how to transform into or merge into the

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

The last 10 nights so that we can come out of Ramadan, achieving the goal of what Ramadan was prescribed for

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

which is a taqwa

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

that we attain taqwa.

00:15:17--> 00:15:23

and tuck was a big word. And hello Adam, if we have enough time to go into all of the meanings of tuffle. But

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

what I don't want to happen is that

00:15:29--> 00:15:44

was what we see often, most years, where people really push themselves and the last 10 nights of Ramadan, only to come out and revert to the same practices that they were doing before Ramadan.

00:15:45--> 00:15:59

You're not going to keep obviously the last 10 nights especially you're not going to keep the same pace of the last 10 nights throughout the year. That's impossible, the prophet I did so that's what saddam himself didn't do that needed his companions. Those were special Knights. They require a different kind of push.

00:16:01--> 00:16:03

But it doesn't mean that when it's done

00:16:04--> 00:16:09

that you can go back to being the same person that you were before the month of Ramadan King.

00:16:11--> 00:16:30

There has to be some permanent change that comes with Ramadan, there have to be some habits that have been developed, that you maintain from before and from the beginning of Ramadan until the end, and that carry over with you but in the light it's added to the day of the eat until the next Ramadan when you build again,

00:16:31--> 00:16:37

because tough one is to worship Allah subhana wa tada with a light from Allah with knowledge,

00:16:39--> 00:16:52

hoping for his reward, and to refrain from his disobedience with the light from Allah. Yeah, and you know that this thing is not permissible for you to do and you abstain from it, fearing the loss of Hannah without his punishment. This is what

00:16:53--> 00:17:04

Ramadan has been prescribed for Allah subhana wa tada says, Yeah, you're Latina, eminonu koulibaly como si en camera kuchibhotla ladymum and publikum Landa contattare coup.

00:17:05--> 00:17:13

Fasting has been prescribed for you or you believe fasting has been prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those who came before you. Look them

00:17:14--> 00:17:28

in the hopes that and so that you would attain taqwa. And that's not normal in the Quran. That's not a norm where Allah Subhana Allah explicitly states the reason why Danny something has been prescribed, but it comes

00:17:29--> 00:17:41

when we talk about fasting. And so if a person does not achieve this goal with fasting, then there has been some deficiency in the fast This is why the Prophet sallallahu wasallam told us

00:17:42--> 00:17:52

millennia Darren dang cola Zoo will actually be he will Jehan, Felisa de la he has yet to Qatar Amma Hua Sharapova,

00:17:53--> 00:18:12

whoever does not leave off colasoft which is loosely translated as false speech. It means to lie, and it means to back bite, it means the Mima and he tell carry all of that comes under false speech, whoever doesn't leave that off during his fast

00:18:14--> 00:18:19

and acting according to that, and he acting according to false speech,

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

and l journal,

00:18:23--> 00:18:33

which is usually translated as ignorance, meaning, and we say this actually, in English, he's behaving ignorantly was that mean? He's not using discretion.

00:18:34--> 00:18:38

And he just reacts to everything. He's vulgar, perhaps,

00:18:39--> 00:18:46

whoever does not leave that off while he is fasting, than Eliza gel has no need for him to leave off his food and his drink.

00:18:47--> 00:18:56

Which shows us that one of the main objectives of our fasting is to learn how to control ourselves.

00:18:57--> 00:18:58

See, because

00:18:59--> 00:19:12

the Arabs used that word. And there are some Arabs here, so maybe they can and he helped me out with this point. But usually, if someone says something to somebody, that is insulting,

00:19:13--> 00:19:23

and then that person responds, in kind and even more, and he says something insulting back, but even more, they say that that person has only been

00:19:24--> 00:19:33

his job, but he's committed job. So he has acted impetuously he has not restrained himself.

00:19:34--> 00:19:47

So one of the aspects of fasting is that a person learns self constraint we find this in another Hadith very clearly. When the prophets of light it was sent him saying that cannot you almost told me I had to come.

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

For lunch, phila, your faith, what is the problem sorry, saddam said if it is the day that one of you is fasting, then he should not have any intimate relations and with his

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

Bounce, nor should he be loud and argumentative. For in Sabbath who hadn't? Oh katella if somebody insults him, or abuses him, then what is he supposed to do? He says in the sign in the sign, he doesn't respond, he learns how to control himself.

00:20:23--> 00:20:32

And this is a this is your first step to taqwa there is no tough without self restraint, without self control.

00:20:33--> 00:20:42

That is the first step. This is why the process of light it was Selim is clearly underlining highlighting this point of how we respond to things.

00:20:44--> 00:20:48

The fact that food and drink is available right in front of you.

00:20:51--> 00:21:01

Just because we're fasting doesn't mean that food and drink is not available here. You could technically take it go in another room, drink, eat, nobody would even know.

00:21:02--> 00:21:35

But you know that Allah azza wa jal knows. And so you restrain yourself. You discipline yourself that fast. Why does fasting need to talk? Why? Because fasting is a form of self restraint. And self restraint, is the first step towards taqwa because tuck was what? To obey Allah, with the light from Allah, hoping for his reward, and to refrain from his disobedience that requires self discipline.

00:21:37--> 00:21:57

And that is a form of a badger, that many of us are not fully aware of, you see that one of the people that the prophets have lied to his son them, and many of you have heard this Hadeeth, that there will be seven, shaded in the throne of Allah, on the day when there is no shade, except for that shade. One of them

00:21:59--> 00:22:05

is a man who was invited to an illicit relate to have an illicit relationship with a woman

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

who was beautiful, and she had status.

00:22:10--> 00:22:21

Beautiful and status. See, because some women may be beautiful, but she's from a poor family. Or

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

maybe she's not a person of virtue. She's beautiful.

00:22:27--> 00:22:31

A lot of people would shun her, but she's beautiful, and she has status.

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

And she invited this man to an illicit relationship.

00:22:36--> 00:23:17

And he said in near half of law, he said, I fear a lot. And he stayed away. I mean, not that he actually did something, it was him refraining from doing something, which was an act of a bad that a lot that the Prophet is allowed to send him and formed us would get him the shade of the throne of a loss of Hannah, who, what to add. So the point is that this month, is a monk that should produce and create taqwa for the believer. And that is not just in the last 10 nights, those first 20 nights, we are training ourselves, we are getting ourselves ready for the last 10.

00:23:18--> 00:23:19

The

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

last 10 nights

00:23:25--> 00:23:27

are important for two main reasons.

00:23:29--> 00:23:45

The first is, as we heard brother Selman mentioned in the beginning, and that is that the Prophet sallallaahu it was sent him sit in the middle America will have a theme, that actions are judged according to how they conclude.

00:23:47--> 00:23:55

actions are judged, according to how they conclude. And I'll give you an example to make it very clear to you imagine a person

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

he prays for records

00:23:59--> 00:24:00

for the jury,

00:24:01--> 00:24:05

and he's in the last two showered and he breaks we'll do

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

salaat is valid or not.

00:24:12--> 00:24:56

It's not valid, because he didn't conclude with Tara. So notice that obviously, that's an over simplistic, and he looked at the concept of being built a team and the way that they conclude, but we all know the hadith of Abdullah Massoud are the low tide and who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had the center who was sadhika. He told us and He is the one who was truthful and the one who was believed. And he mentioned the Hadith, up to the point where he says that there is a person who will do the actions of the people of gender. And so there is nothing between him and Jen except for Han span. And then he will do the actions of the people of the Hellfire and so he will be

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

thrown into it. And the point is that action

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

Or how they conclude it is nonsensical and illogical for a person to push himself through the first 20 days of Ramadan and then take it easy and the last 10

00:25:10--> 00:25:18

actions are judged according to how they conclude. The second reason why these last 10 are so important

00:25:20--> 00:25:32

is because in them is a night that a loss of Hannah who would add I said is better than 1000 months, and that is laylat al Qaeda. Now, you can look up into this point.

00:25:35--> 00:25:36

And

00:25:38--> 00:26:19

you may look at the 16th day and it's important that we do this from time to time and we take account of ourselves as a role model the low tide and who said has evil and who should come into hassle, take account of yourselves before the day comes that you will be taken account of you can come now to the 16th thing you look and you say Subhana Allah and I haven't done my bestest Ramadan. Maybe you haven't read as much Quran as you would have liked to or didn't pray total weird or maybe even some certain Salawat you haven't been making one time for whatever reason. And this is the time and we need to recognize this aquatic that the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada is vast, and there is

00:26:19--> 00:26:36

no sin that the son of Adam can commit that is greater and more vast than the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. So no matter where you are right now, if you are someone who lost power data has blessed to have taken full advantage of the 16 days

00:26:38--> 00:26:46

that you've done everything that you set out to do, that you haven't said anything that you regret, that you haven't done anything that you regret, just think about the last two weeks

00:26:48--> 00:26:52

that you have given sadaqa as much as you can,

00:26:54--> 00:27:01

that you have been making your robotic, and he those Sooners before and after the salaat that you've been praying every night

00:27:03--> 00:27:20

that your fast has been protected. If that is you then praise a loss of Hannah who was added and asked him to increase you and all that is good, but it should help him as he didn't last for dialysis. If you show gratitude, if you are thankful, then I will increase you.

00:27:22--> 00:27:25

But if you fallen short of the mark,

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

in certain things,

00:27:28--> 00:27:30

is still not too late.

00:27:31--> 00:27:41

It's still not too late to come back and make the last 10 nights of this Ramadan be the best last 10 nights that you've ever had.

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

It's possible

00:27:45--> 00:28:05

release ally via as is and it's not something too great for loss of data to guide you to that. A loss of health data set and the hospital could see festa dooney decom asked me for guidance. Aloma Dini. Dino sirata. Mr. King asked me for guidance. And I will guide you

00:28:06--> 00:28:07

just ask.

00:28:09--> 00:28:11

You know, there was a man

00:28:13--> 00:28:13

who

00:28:16--> 00:28:20

Rahim Allah was from the great and he memes of the of the seller.

00:28:23--> 00:28:26

He went to a man he saw the man was getting older.

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

And he said to

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

me how, in the exact translation or word for word, how many years have come to you? Meaning How old are you?

00:28:38--> 00:28:42

The man informed me said I'm 60 years old 60.

00:28:43--> 00:28:56

And for them, said to him, a person who has been traveling to a loss of Hannah who was Adda for 60 years, has surely almost reached his destination.

00:28:58--> 00:29:19

You understand that point? A man who has been traveling and this is something this is a concept that the prophesy Selim has repeated and the sooner complete dunya can occur even Oh Abu Sabir be in this life. As if you were a stranger or somebody just going on the path. You're a traveler, you're a traveler. All of us are traveling.

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

So Phil Dale said to him,

00:29:23--> 00:29:24

a person

00:29:25--> 00:29:28

who has been traveling for 60 years, he's almost reached his destination.

00:29:29--> 00:29:33

That man said in alila, we're in a raggio.

00:29:34--> 00:29:45

And when we when do we say that? We say that when somebody has died? We say that when there has been some type of calamity that is afflicted, it's like the man it was a wake up call for him. He says to pantyliner.

00:29:46--> 00:29:49

So, for Dale says to him,

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

do you know what? Melilla we're in LA he rajguru means? He said yes. He said it means that I am a slave.

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

Have a law belong to Allah, and to him, I'm going to return.

00:30:06--> 00:30:08

Right? That's the translation.

00:30:09--> 00:30:14

So they'll say, whoever knows that he is a slave of Allah.

00:30:15--> 00:30:26

And let him know that he will stand in front of Allah. And if he stands in front of Allah, He will be questioned for in the houmous Ooh, is going to be question.

00:30:27--> 00:30:33

And then the man said, What can I do? What can I do?

00:30:34--> 00:30:36

And he began to cry.

00:30:38--> 00:30:39

And he didn't know what to do.

00:30:41--> 00:30:42

And Dale said to him,

00:30:43--> 00:30:44

it's easy.

00:30:46--> 00:30:54

Now, just imagine he's telling him reminding him about that standing in front of Allison Hamilton, about him being asked about everything that he's done.

00:30:56--> 00:31:06

And he says, No, no, it's easy. The mess and then tell me what to do. Well, Dale said to him, sin, female buckle, you found LACMA? cazzola.

00:31:07--> 00:31:12

just too good and what remains? And whatever has proceeded will be forgiven.

00:31:13--> 00:31:17

Do good and what remains? This is a reminder for myself.

00:31:18--> 00:31:21

And for all of you and anybody else that may be listening,

00:31:22--> 00:31:24

that Allah azza wa jal is eligible for

00:31:26--> 00:31:44

that he gives us multiple opportunities that he allows us to hear the message, the same message, different ways. And we read the Quran over and over again. And sometimes we read something and it means something to us at that time that it didn't mean to us two months before then two years before that.

00:31:45--> 00:31:53

And repetition is a one of the best instructors they say. And so we come now we hear this we've probably heard a lot of this before.

00:31:55--> 00:32:03

But it's a reminder for us to get back on track and take advantage of these last two nights of Ramadan.

00:32:08--> 00:32:09

Allah azza wa jal

00:32:10--> 00:32:13

informs us than in these last 10 nights

00:32:15--> 00:32:16

laylat laylat al Qaeda,

00:32:17--> 00:32:18

Taiwan,

00:32:21--> 00:32:22

Laila Takada,

00:32:23--> 00:32:40

Allah azza wa jal revealed an entire surah about latest from Qatar and the Quran and Laila to Qatar is mentioned in two places in the Quran. Obviously surah elkader and what was the other place that lies which we'll talk about later till Qatar

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

so let's do Hi.

00:32:43--> 00:33:17

Hello allies with Joe says in Nan's and now he laid it in mubaraka in quantum de rien, fi here you've Roku Hulu Ambien hacky lost data says in sort of a too high that we have sent it down on a blessed night I need to cry this book, we have sent it down on a blessed night. Indeed we are Warner's so we have sent Warner's fi hat in that night. Every wise command of a loss of power data is determined.

00:33:20--> 00:33:21

Okay.

00:33:22--> 00:33:47

How when we look at Les little cuddle, a lot of people when I've seen this translation frequently, they translate it as the night of power the night of power, but in fact, it's better if we look at the meaning of Qatar because so that we can understand what is later to Qatar and why is it so important and what is what is how is it distinguished from other nights of the year

00:33:48--> 00:33:54

later as it comes into Quran it is L card rule okay.

00:33:55--> 00:33:58

So there is a sukoon on a dat I'll cover

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

Now that means in the Arabic language that is of high nobility or status when you say rajulio Nazim will cuddle for example, someone who has a high status amongst the people noble

00:34:14--> 00:34:25

but it can also be pronounced les little harder. And he what they set out when the doubt so in English they would write sometimes they write QA Dr. That's the first way

00:34:26--> 00:34:32

and the second way is QA de AR Kadar which means the decree

00:34:33--> 00:34:42

of Allah Subhana which ad and both of them are correct. Because it is a night that is honorable. It is noble.

00:34:43--> 00:34:46

It carries a high status in Islam.

00:34:48--> 00:34:53

And it is also the night in which there is the annual decree

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

to sidetrack for a minute. Does anyone know what the annual decree means?

00:35:00--> 00:35:45

What does that mean? Because we know that a lot of data has written the McCarthy era is the province of light it was one of the law cuts of a McArdle holiday coupler in Yokosuka semiological out become see we have seen center. So the Prophet is delighted with Sam said that a law has written the makadi need the decree of the creation before creating the heavens in the earth by 50,000 years. So what does that mean that we have an annual decree? So that's why this is part of the Quran says in the Quran fee Have you for cuckoo emelin hacking in it in that night? All of the wise commands of your Lord are determined.

00:35:47--> 00:35:49

What does that mean an annual decree?

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

Yes.

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

Okay.

00:36:01--> 00:36:02

I almost

00:36:03--> 00:36:33

now, actually, I mean, that's correct, but it needs a little bit more detail. He's just a little bit more detail. What What it means is that now, what is for those of you because I know many of you here where the learners are studying, you're actually studying Islam and I think that's a beautiful thing. ask Allah subhana wa tada to increase you and guidance for those of you who are studying Eliza with gels cutter the Divine Decree of velocity of data is what they call four stages or Marathi.

00:36:34--> 00:36:37

Who knows them. But those of you who are studying

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

now

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

Yeah.

00:36:45--> 00:36:46

Okay.

00:36:49--> 00:36:50

All right.

00:36:53--> 00:36:54

I needed systematically.

00:36:56--> 00:36:56

Sorry,

00:36:58--> 00:36:59

that creation is the last.

00:37:02--> 00:37:03

Writing is second.

00:37:07--> 00:37:11

This stuff is important. She did important, very important that we understand because

00:37:12--> 00:37:18

all of you know the hadith of gibreel came to the prophets of light it was sent him and he asked them what Islam was. Amen.

00:37:19--> 00:37:38

And the prophet SAW you send them told him and he man and taught me to be like, Mama, he can see he will be he will do he will Yeoman asked who taught me and I will carry Heidi, he was sorry, he man is to believe in Allah, His angels, messengers the last day, and to believe in Al Qaeda. This is part of your belief in our culture, you have to know this.

00:37:39--> 00:37:47

The first stage of al Qaeda is a lane that aligns with Joe knows everything

00:37:48--> 00:37:57

that he knows everything that has previously existed, and everything that's happening right now. And everything that will happen in the future and everything that didn't happen if it did happen, how it would happen.

00:37:59--> 00:38:23

aligns with Joe's knowledge encompasses everything, understand this point, because a lot of people get funny. So this point, is important, especially for those of you who give any type of data and who deal with atheists, because the atheist main enrolled on any religious person, not just a Muslim is Al Qaeda. Why does Allah if you believe in God, why is there evil evil as part of the cutter

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

evil as part of the cutter, this is what they have Iran, they are going against, they want to know about how laws cut that is a wire laws, because it is, how can we? How can we know everything about al Qaeda

00:38:39--> 00:38:41

and Al Qaeda is based on a loss.

00:38:43--> 00:38:50

It's based on a loss of knowledge. We'll never be able to understand a loss knowledge, it's too vast.

00:38:51--> 00:38:56

So this aspect of Qatar is important that we know that Allah azza wa jal knows everything.

00:38:57--> 00:39:03

He knows it and he wrote it down. That's the keytab that the brother mentioned. So he wrote down

00:39:05--> 00:39:06

that knowledge where

00:39:08--> 00:39:10

and a low Alma

00:39:12--> 00:39:29

and then Allah azza wa jal after that point, you have in knowledge keytab that he wrote it down. You have el mushiya, that Allah has the wisdom will for that thing to happen. That does not negate that we have a will, because Allah azza wa jal didn't make us do anything.

00:39:31--> 00:39:33

And he the same way a client that,

00:39:34--> 00:39:42

for example, for you brothers who have children, you may give your child an option. Would you like to go to school? Would you like to go swimming?

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

Right.

00:39:45--> 00:40:00

And you already wrote down the answer that that your child was going to give you an advance you wrote it down in advance because you had the knowledge. And so you wrote it down, you still gave them the option. And then they chose the option which was go to

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

Right, because who would want to go swimming? So, they

00:40:06--> 00:40:08

choose that, though that choice,

00:40:09--> 00:40:11

we have free will.

00:40:12--> 00:40:40

However, it is restricted to what Allah azza wa jal allows to happen. When Sharona Illa Allah, Allah and me You do not will accept that Eliza with gel mobile and amenas has will so allies would your wills for that thing to happen and then it'll help like somebody mentioned and then he creates the circumstances that bring that will into fruition.

00:40:41--> 00:40:51

So Laila, Takada again now back to our point laylat al Qaeda Alliance, which has decreed all of this, there is no new decree on later till Qatar.

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

However,

00:40:55--> 00:40:57

the cutter is alive as we just

00:40:59--> 00:41:02

it is carried out by the angels.

00:41:04--> 00:41:22

So Allah azza wa jal commands this angel to send rain, that one to withhold the rain sends the medical mode to take the souls of this this one sends a different medic who breathes life into the soul of the breathes soul into the to the fetus.

00:41:25--> 00:41:43

All of that is determined for the year on laylatul cutter Eliza gel and forms informs the angels of what their jobs are to be for that year. This is the Tafseer that has been mentioned by my best jacket and others from amongst the self.

00:41:44--> 00:41:52

So just so that we understand because sometimes this can be confusing like what does this mean we have this type of cutter and that type of cutter type.

00:41:53--> 00:41:57

So les little cutter what makes it such a special night

00:41:58--> 00:42:00

for some of the youth here

00:42:01--> 00:42:03

you memorize sort of the cutter

00:42:04--> 00:42:07

the one behind you Yes. You did

00:42:08--> 00:42:09

not

00:42:10--> 00:42:14

recite from the beginning please say I will be lying in the shape ontology and then recite

00:42:22--> 00:42:33

start right there in that because we want to look at what's so special about this night. What is so special about Lila toccata allies with Joseph in and zenair who feel a little cutter

00:42:35--> 00:42:36

and what did he sent down?

00:42:37--> 00:42:49

He sent down the Quran and the Quran is one of the if not the greatest gifts of Allah Mohammed Atta, to mankind. If you look at the look at sort of are

00:42:51--> 00:43:24

we a rugby match, okay, the band that I that is often repeated which one of your Lords favors? Will the two of you deny? And he mankind and jinn, like the beginning of that sorta is our right man. The first favor that he mentions is LML Quran that he taught the Quran, this is a great gift from Allah Subhana Allah. So the fact that the Quran was revealed in later till Qatar is a great gift from a loss of habitat is another misconception that a lot of times people have

00:43:26--> 00:43:38

and that is what does it mean that the Quran was revealed and later to Qatar? Was that mean? Don't we know that the Quran for example, the first ayat that will reveal from the Quran was one economic stability.

00:43:39--> 00:43:40

And the last is from the Quran was

00:43:46--> 00:43:48

Dina Kuhn was revealed on alpha.

00:43:50--> 00:44:04

But tacoman to Jonah fee Lala, fear that they protect yourself from the day that you will return back to a law attack. Well, here again, we get the concept of a tough one, protecting yourself by

00:44:05--> 00:44:07

the telco your mental geography, the law

00:44:08--> 00:44:20

that was revealed at the end of the life of the Prophet it starts with center, an economic discriminability Halak was revealed with the province of light it was son was 40 years old. It was 23 years. What do you mean the Quran was revealed in Ramadan?

00:44:25--> 00:44:56

In Enza men who feel a little cut it it was sent down it was sent down lay little cutter even I best on the low tide and who man who the Prophet it is Salatu was sent me do it for he said a llama de wailuku tell wheel over la give him understand and give him 50 of the deed and teach him the tat wheel and he the Tafseer of the Quran. He said that it was only a little cutter that a lot of Hannah who was sent down the Quran from the

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

from the low hammer

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

food to pay to laser,

00:45:03--> 00:45:23

which is the lowest heavens. And then from there jabril revealed it to the profit gradually over that period of 23 years. So it's in Enza. Now feel a little cutter. It's not talking about revelation to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam tribe, the second eye,

00:45:24--> 00:45:36

that's the first special quality of later toccata. And that is when the Quran was sent down. I have number two. And as a note related to Qatar, I forgot the finished words.

00:45:38--> 00:45:42

Matter aka malita Sankara

00:45:43--> 00:46:08

one does aligns with your use that type of what what is it that will allow you to know what Laila toccata this meaning you will never grasp? the virtue of laser cutter is to great oma as a document a little cutter. What is it that will cause you to know or allow you to know what laser to cut? That is you want? It is to great time? Third Eye?

00:46:14--> 00:46:25

This is the one we all know. Right. Les? Let's we'll add Hi, Ron, mean, Alfie shall that the night of Qatar

00:46:27--> 00:46:33

is better than 1000 months not equal to 1000 months,

00:46:34--> 00:47:26

not equal to 1000 months is better than 1000 months. And this can be understood two ways to be understood 1000 as an 1000 months, which is 83 months and 83 years and four months. But also, the term 1000 in Arabic is used similar to how we use it in English for a mobile or that and we want to exaggerate the the what we're saying. And so it may even be more than 1000 months. Like you know, we say we're we're he called you 1000 times, right? You didn't actually call you're trying to show how much you did. But in this sense, if Eliza gel and when Eliza Joe says it's better than 1000 months, it may be better than me. And he made me that 1000 months that we are conscious of or maybe even

00:47:26--> 00:47:27

more than that.

00:47:28--> 00:47:29

And so one

00:47:30--> 00:47:37

take a stop. I'm going to stop here for a second, because I really want us to ponder over the meaning of 1000 months.

00:47:40--> 00:47:48

The lifespan of the average human being on earth does not exceed 70 years.

00:47:49--> 00:47:58

Now in more developed countries, yes, it may be a bit more. But the point is average lifespan on earth is about 70 years, which means that

00:48:00--> 00:48:03

you could worship the last panel of data

00:48:04--> 00:48:05

in one night

00:48:06--> 00:48:11

and have the reward of worshiping Him for more than a lifespan.

00:48:13--> 00:48:33

Okay, look, honey, so raw. And we really need to think about this because the person who doesn't strive once they understand this concept. Once they really understand what 1000 months me means a person who does not strive after that is really deprived. And he's deprived himself of a lifespan without his mercy.

00:48:35--> 00:48:41

We have to push ourselves if it was something for the dunion trust me, trust me, we wouldn't think twice.

00:48:43--> 00:48:43

Now

00:48:46--> 00:48:47

take your salary,

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

the salary that you get right now, whatever it may be, and just put three zeros on the end of your salary.

00:48:55--> 00:48:56

Okay.

00:48:59--> 00:49:00

And then,

00:49:01--> 00:49:06

not only that tight, so let's look at, let's say somebody's salary is

00:49:08--> 00:49:12

10,000. What do they have here? What is it that you guys

00:49:13--> 00:49:17

did hammer? Right? So let's just say somebody's salary is 10,000.

00:49:19--> 00:49:21

So put three zeros on that.

00:49:22--> 00:49:23

What do we come up with?

00:49:24--> 00:49:27

10 million. Okay, so your boss says, Listen,

00:49:29--> 00:49:29

he says aroma.

00:49:31--> 00:49:33

His next 10 days

00:49:34--> 00:49:35

are really special to me.

00:49:38--> 00:49:52

There's really one day that's really special to me and I can't tell you what it is. Okay, so you actually have to come you have to work all 10 but if you work all 10 instead of just giving you the 10,000 that you normally get at the end of the month, I give you 10 million.

00:49:55--> 00:49:57

Does anybody gonna not do that one?

00:49:58--> 00:50:00

Anybody gonna just say you know

00:50:00--> 00:50:23

Now, that's too much. 10 days, I got to work 10 days straight, no weekends, no vacation time. 10 nights straight. And it's at night too, so I have to change my whole schedule. So instead of working in a day, I don't like the graveyard shift you want me to come work at night? Not 10 million is not really. Nobody. Nobody's gonna when we translate this into dunya

00:50:24--> 00:50:28

We're ready. We're ready to leave the lecture hall right now. And we're ready to go.

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

10 nights Yeah, let's do it. Let's can it can start right now we'll do 14 no problem.

00:50:35--> 00:51:15

But when it comes to the work for the Hereafter, maybe it's not as it hasn't sunk in as much yet. Well, like that 10 million. Even if you get it, how much are you really going to spend? How much is going to go to the grave with you? None. It at the end of the day, it's it's material. But whatever you do for allies with Jelena lies with you alone, in the Lucha lay, you do agilon Martini. Eliza will not cause any of the good that you do to go to waste. One test v ha just saying Subhana Allah once later to Qatar, like you said it 4000 months

00:51:16--> 00:51:35

read from the Quran. Every heart every letter that you read from the Quran is the hasin. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said well has to be actually emphatic. And every time every has in it, every good deed is 10 times multiplied over and then that like you've done it for 1000 months.

00:51:38--> 00:51:39

The salaat that you pray,

00:51:41--> 00:51:57

however many records you pray 1123 36 that are in Medina, and Medina up until after the time would be magmatic from the time of the Tabby they break 39 rockets in Medina they didn't bring 11 and they didn't pray 23 and Mecca they pray 23

00:51:59--> 00:52:11

however many rockets you pray however much Quran you stand with in that night. It says if you've done it for 1000 months, I want us to understand and I hammer home the point 1000 months?

00:52:12--> 00:52:43

No, no, I made a mistake. Les little kaduri hieromonk lV sharp, it's better than better than the worship that you do is better than 1000 months. So not 10,000 and 10 million more than 10 million. So we shouldn't honestly, we should not Wayne and fall week and worshipping Eliza Joe. And these last two nights now today, as you know is the 16th Ramadan is Friday.

00:52:44--> 00:52:49

Tuesday is going to be the 20th of Ramadan. Correct.

00:52:51--> 00:53:37

I'm sure you've all thought about it because you're preparing for the last 10 you've already thought about when the last 10 is going to begin. So if Tuesday is the 20th day, then after Mother's Day on Tuesday is the 21st night. Okay, so that means you have from now until Tuesday to buy your eat clothes and make sure your children have everything they need it because you don't need to be in the sock and the last 10 nights. That's that's not what you want to be doing in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. spending your time doing anything other than something that is going to get you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala so prepared in the last 10 nights. You don't want to be watching the news.

00:53:39--> 00:53:54

If you know what's going on in the world, because the world just depends on your political analysis and how you view things. If that's just the way it is no problem catching in the morning after budget, but not at night. Lay little cut it is too valuable.

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

Don't send out Facebook posts or

00:54:01--> 00:54:44

the meme is recitation tonight was so beautiful. You know everybody in the messenger was crying including me. And and you send out the post on Facebook or Twitter or something like that. Leave that stuff alone, the last 10 nights and inshallah when we talk about it, can we learn? Danny, it's not for that the last 10 nights you need to take advantage of every opportunity you have to worship a lot of time with data and get tired and the last 10 nights. Okay, like for example, you get tired at some point and you know that if you don't take a little nap, that you're not going to be able to stand in pm. Then take a little nap with the intention that you are preparing yourself for pm and

00:54:44--> 00:54:46

then your sleep will also be bad.

00:54:48--> 00:54:56

This is the fifth of your need to understand your intention. And the last 10 nights you're going to have to eat correct

00:54:58--> 00:55:00

like any other night

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

Ramadan, you're going to eat some food but don't make it be like the support from before when you eat, because you like the way the food tastes.

00:55:08--> 00:55:17

Eat Soho because you want to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam who told us to say huddle for inofficial holy Baraka

00:55:19--> 00:55:35

eat the pre dawn meal. That's the whole meal because it is Baraka. So you want to follow the Sunnah of the prophet Isaiah SelectUSA, you can turn with your Nia only you're doing the same thing, eating, eating, sleeping, sleeping. But that one is just a mundane act. And that one is an act of a bed.

00:55:36--> 00:55:57

Just by what just by your near. So if you train yourself and this is one of the points that I want to drive home, if you train yourself in the last 10 nights to make your normal mundane actions, x of the bed in the lead is something you can continue to do after the last 10 nights it's nothing but a need.

00:55:58--> 00:56:18

Which you should be conscious conscious of that when you drink coffee in the last 10 nights. Don't drink it because you like the way it tastes or because you don't want to have a headache, no drink it any drink that with the intention of giving you more energy for praying for reading the Quran for calling upon Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:56:19--> 00:56:20

So

00:56:21--> 00:56:43

that was number three, from the virtues of Laila toccata is that it is better than 1000 months meaning that the worship that is performed there in is rewarded by Allah subhana wa tada as if the person has worshipped him for more than with that act of worship for more than 1000 months, type number four, the fourth eye

00:56:44--> 00:56:45

is funny.

00:56:46--> 00:56:46

Now

00:56:49--> 00:57:04

what rule here in Europe BM and kuliah. So the angels come down, and our rule, what is our rule jabril had a son, because jabril his primary function

00:57:05--> 00:57:44

was a revelation. And he that he brought the revelation to the prophets. And the fact that he would come down on that night is is is is an indication of the significance of laylatul color and its importance, and that all of those angels that are coming down, they're coming down with what they come down with mercy. The angels, they come with mercy, from a loss of Hannah, who was at Salomon here, had term of Allah infection. And he that there is peace, tranquility in that night. That's the fifth thing until the break of dawn.

00:57:46--> 00:57:51

And that tranquility is twofold.

00:57:52--> 00:58:16

It can mean not just peace, but a feeling of safety, because allies will freeze so many of his servants from the fire on that night that it brings about a feeling of safety. The sixth point about laylat elkader is the size of a gel called La la mubaraka.

00:58:17--> 00:58:24

And there is no fee Laila Tim mubaraka that is a blessed night. What has blessed me, what does Mubarak mean? And is

00:58:27--> 00:58:30

a lot of times we just say words, we don't even know what they mean.

00:58:31--> 00:58:32

It's blessed. What does that mean?

00:58:35--> 00:58:37

The Sahara for inofficial haori Baraka

00:58:38--> 00:58:43

eastshore. Because our has Baraka? What's that mean? Yeah.

00:58:45--> 00:59:32

I sent very good see, a lot of people usually say it means that there's a reward. Now, it means that it's, there's an increase. Baraka means there's something grows, it develops. So, this night, the most clear and obvious Baraka is that anything you do in it will be increased, as if you have done it for 1000 months. g five, there is a virtue that I have not mentioned, and it'll lead us to our next topic and shall longtime, that is that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said about Laila to Qatar men comma laylat al Qaeda, he men and whitey sabot who fear Allah who manchaca Dima mean them be corrected by the man who hardened Muslim, that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, Whoever

00:59:32--> 00:59:33

stands

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

in prayer

00:59:38--> 00:59:39

and les little cutter

00:59:41--> 00:59:54

amen and believing in Allah azza wa jal and the reward that he has associated with this action, what he seven and seeking that reward he believes in the reward and he seeks it

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

woofie Allah who machaca Dima means MB all of his previous sin

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

be forgiven.

01:00:03--> 01:00:07

And this is one of the important points that we look at.

01:00:10--> 01:00:50

When we look at Layla Takata, what is it that we should be doing on Layla to cut it and I'm going to postpone that after we talk about the last 10 nights in general. So if we look at Laila toccata, and its significance, then we understand now, why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is actually low tide and has said Can he do Phil Ashley, our la stay to be writing that the prophets of light it was son of would exert himself in the worship of Allah Subhana data in the last 10 nights, like he would do at no other time of the year.

01:00:51--> 01:01:02

There was no other time of the year now we know a hadith from a shadow the load side of her where she said that the promise of lighter was selling with stand this is outside of Ramadan, he would stand until his feet were swollen.

01:01:03--> 01:01:45

And she asked him, haven't you been forgiven for all of your sins, those which have proceeded and those which had to come? The Prophet sallallahu wasallam Safa laocoon Cora Should I not be a thankful servant? Should I not be grateful to Allah subhana wa tada that was outside of Ramadan, he would push himself and exert effort and the worship of Allah subhana wa tada in the last 10 nights like he would do at no other time of the year. I pointed I forgot to mention, shall we get to that? And that is when is Layla Takata because that's how we got to the point of the last 10 when his latest time anyway no

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

27

01:01:52--> 01:01:54

one at one of the last 10 nights

01:01:55--> 01:02:02

the Prophet is allowed to sit in. Okay, so the first thing is from the Quran, we know that Laila toccata is in Ramadan

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

right? How do you know that from the Quran?

01:02:07--> 01:02:14

Shall Ramadan LED on zero female Quran so we know that the Quran was sent down in Ramadan

01:02:15--> 01:02:42

and we know that the Quran was sent down later to cut it so we know later to cut it is in Ramadan. We know from the Sunnah of the prophet Isaiah select with Sudan that the lady that later Takada is in the last 10 nights. And that is from the hadith of Abu say, a hotel a lot, a lot of chatter and who he said that the Prophet alayhi wa sallam used to make a tea cap in the first 10 nights of Ramadan.

01:02:43--> 01:03:34

And then he may at camp in the middle 10 nights of Ramadan. And then he was informed and in some narration says gibreel informed him that it is in the last 10 so the prophets of light it was Sunset from an era and Yaki foliat fee a national hour here so whoever wants to make it he can then let him do so. In the last 10 nights of Ramadan, the province of Lahore it was seldom said any Timmy suha Phil actually our hip and he looked for later to Qatar and the last 10 nights to her room, Layla Takada will actually awaken and some narrations seek it out seek out the night of color and the last 10 nights the prophets of Leo Samson another narration that was collected by the man Muslim on the

01:03:34--> 01:03:37

authority of Ivanova for the alone China and

01:03:38--> 01:04:07

that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, look for it in the last 10 what in biofa do kuhmo edges if one of you becomes weak or is unable to do so, for law you will abandon Allah seven bollocky then don't let anything overcome him. And the last seven any meaning that is more likely to be in the last seven nights of Ramadan?

01:04:09--> 01:04:12

Is it only on an odd night? Or can it be on an even night?

01:04:16--> 01:04:16

On the ad Knights?

01:04:19--> 01:04:27

Even also, hi, Annie, is there a difference of opinion amongst the scholars here? No.

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

I

01:04:32--> 01:04:59

there's actually a highly desirable party where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said look for it on the odd nights and look for it in the odd nights of the last 10. But there is another narration and there's other evidence besides this narration I mentioned in this for an important point I mentioned that the NHL even our best or the Allahu tada and Homer and Sahil Bukhari he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about Lila till Qatar

01:05:00--> 01:05:22

temi suha letus in Lita, Seattle, Bucky Lee beatin Bucky Lee Harmison Bucky. And he only took the test he is in the holly Lisa V is in the hobby certain zip code the province it Some say look for it with nine remaining with seven remaining with five remaining

01:05:24--> 01:05:33

if the month is 30 if the month goes 30 days and then 30 nights, nine remaining is the 22nd night.

01:05:35--> 01:05:36

Seven remaining is the 24th and

01:05:38--> 01:05:40

five remaining is the 26th.

01:05:41--> 01:05:48

So because we don't know how many nights Ramadan is going to be 29 or 30 we don't know how many are remaining.

01:05:49--> 01:06:19

And as a result, many of the scholars like Jacob Assam and take me out of him alone. Others have said that this is clear evidence along with some other evidence that it could possibly follow. Even night. So to recap that because there are the scholars have different they have now how many nights we're talking about here 10 nights, the scholars have different they have 46 opinions as to when 46 different opinions as to when later to cut that might be even hedger mentioned the professional body.

01:06:20--> 01:06:20

And

01:06:21--> 01:06:32

some of them are obviously incorrect. Some of them mentioned the 15th of Shaban, for example. That's obviously not correct due to other evidence. But the point is that the point is that most likely

01:06:34--> 01:06:36

later till Qatar is in the last

01:06:37--> 01:06:41

seven nights of Ramadan on an ad night most likely,

01:06:42--> 01:06:58

but it could be any of the last 10. And so therefore, it is important that a person shrine and all of the 10 now the prophet Isaiah is similar to Sam, one of the things that he would do, as I mentioned previously from the hadith of Abu sinal

01:06:59--> 01:07:29

is that the prophecy Sunnah would make a T calf that the Prophet is allowed to sit and would make a T calf and the reason primarily that he would make a T calf is seeking Leyland cell cutter and so that he could worship Allah Subhana Allah the entire night, to be away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. To be in a place in domestic secluded and worshipping Allah as well. without distraction.

01:07:31--> 01:07:31

The

01:07:33--> 01:07:34

word is

01:07:36--> 01:07:36

the word

01:07:38--> 01:07:38

we need to

01:07:40--> 01:08:20

look at what this word means because many people say you can just go into the masjid for 10 minutes and make niet Allah to cap it just when you whenever you go into the master have needs it to cap and that's not to say that's not a an opinion that is an opinion that certain scholars have however, the word it t calf comes from the roots at Kapha I calf fan, Agatha and that word in the language means to devote oneself to something usually with a form of submission and humility. Okay to adhere to something so Ibrahim Allah is

01:08:21--> 01:08:44

for example, when he came to his people who were worshipping those statues, he said to them I had he had to Matthew let's see end to Lucha Akki who what are these statues that you people who have devoted yourselves to? Okay, so this is the word at cat. It means to or refer

01:08:45--> 01:08:50

devoting oneself to something humbly and submissively as

01:08:51--> 01:09:08

the way we look at it in Islam, according to the technical terminology, then it refers to secluding oneself male or female in the masjid, for the purpose of worshiping Allah Subhana who would

01:09:13--> 01:09:13

play

01:09:16--> 01:09:19

what is the ultimate objective of palliative care?

01:09:20--> 01:09:23

I think it's important for us to note because

01:09:25--> 01:09:27

the prophet Isaiah salatu salam

01:09:28--> 01:09:59

would perform at Caffe in the last 10 nights of Ramadan except for the year that he died, I shall be allowed to enter and he said the year that he died, he could care for 20 days. He stayed in domestic for 20 days. And this was the Sunnah of the Prophet sallahu wa Salaam and the campaigns. I showed the load data and has it in the BS ally to send them a check for a lateral overhead mama bond to a fella as well. Why

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

packet as well as your human body

01:10:03--> 01:10:18

the process of it was sent to me at Kevin the last 10 nights until a lot took his soul and then his wives me into calf after him which is one of the clear indications that is permissible for women also to make a T cap

01:10:19--> 01:10:20

so

01:10:21--> 01:10:44

the prophets why Selim me at can the campaign's me at cat and there's an interesting statement from an Imam Missouri. Rahim Allah who's from the Tabby. He died in the year 124 he said, as your been Lil muslimeen he said, how strange it is the affair of the Muslims these days.

01:10:46--> 01:11:03

He said that they have taught a coup al at camp that they left at Caf my indinavir whom Lem get ruku Kadima Medina, even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not leave it, he kept from the time he came to

01:11:06--> 01:11:14

the province isonomy to care. So this is something that we need to look at as Muslims.

01:11:16--> 01:11:18

Have we ever made it to camp before?

01:11:19--> 01:12:00

If not, what is stopping us? Were you planning on making at Camp this Ramadan? If you weren't, inshallah, within the next 10 minutes, you'll change your mind with the law. And you'll make it at least for a night. Because it is permissible, you don't have to do the entire 10 nights. But the prophets of light, it was something I did so because he had the ability to do so. And for those who have worked obligations or otherwise and cannot do so, then be led by their intention, shall outsider they will be rewarded. But still on the weekends on at some point, we need to be spending this time in domestic that is because the ultimate objective

01:12:04--> 01:12:17

is to be in seclusion, to business busy yourself. This is how the scholars mention it to be so busy with your remembrance of the Creator, that you forget the creation,

01:12:19--> 01:12:24

to be so busy, and the remembrance of the Creator, that you forget everybody else.

01:12:26--> 01:12:27

Because yes,

01:12:28--> 01:12:32

you're going to experience death by yourself.

01:12:34--> 01:12:37

And you're going to be buried alone.

01:12:39--> 01:12:40

In the grave alone.

01:12:42--> 01:12:45

Stand in front of a last panel with data alone.

01:12:46--> 01:12:49

cross the sea right? alone.

01:12:51--> 01:12:52

You need time

01:12:53--> 01:13:02

alone in this dunya. To prepare for that time when you're going to be alone. Don't allow it to be the only time you worship the laws when everybody else is worshiping the law.

01:13:04--> 01:13:10

The only time you feel comfortable is when you are around other people who make you feel comfortable.

01:13:11--> 01:13:14

The fact of the matter is that you want to find solace

01:13:15--> 01:13:19

and comfort, being alone

01:13:20--> 01:13:31

with a loss of Hannah, who was added remembering him reading his words reciting his words praying to Him calling upon him, you need that time in this dunya

01:13:33--> 01:13:36

to prepare, and there will be no one else to comfort you.

01:13:38--> 01:13:41

Or to give you solace except for Allah Subhana who would add

01:13:42--> 01:13:44

nobody's visiting you in the grave.

01:13:47--> 01:14:09

Nobody is going to be able to come and help you when you're standing in front of a loss of habitat and acquired so this this is a bed of a T calf is amazing in the sense here that it prepares you for that because a lot of us don't we really don't know who we are. Until we're alone. People can't live without their cell phones.

01:14:10--> 01:14:19

And two hours, three hours, you know without the cell phone and they don't they're not able to communicate with it. What about your communication with Allah mobile at me.

01:14:21--> 01:14:39

And so this is critical from that perspective. And again, if you don't have the ability to do it for 10 days or 10 nights rather the days and the Knights Do what you can do what you can because you will see be in the law you'll see the fruit you'll see what you're made out of.

01:14:40--> 01:14:41

When you make a TK

01:14:43--> 01:14:55

Do you get bored with the worship of philosophy with data? And so you try to figure out a way how do I how do I treat this? allow my electric shock requires Nevada to look at me and remembering you

01:14:56--> 01:15:00

ate me and thanking you ate me and worshiping you properly

01:15:01--> 01:15:05

No. So this this, as you can see, is important for that reason.

01:15:07--> 01:15:43

And it is one of the means that protects the believer from over socializing, because it's funny, and we need to look at how to shape and come to us. How do we get distracted? How what is it that has destroyed people by him enough by him a whole lot. He said intimate. Ibrahim inukai for those of you who don't know, was one of the great killing Jani Tabby, Tabby, and he was a student of Elon Musk's route of the Los Angeles animal. And he said, Hello Kim in Canada kubla Khan. PETA live in salt.

01:15:45--> 01:15:51

Fog lol calamy will follow me, will fabul min me

01:15:53--> 01:15:56

these three things, destroy people who came before you.

01:15:59--> 01:16:03

Over talking over eating and oversleep.

01:16:06--> 01:16:08

And unnecessary speech,

01:16:09--> 01:16:14

unnecessary food and overeating and unnecessary sleep.

01:16:15--> 01:16:43

What happens with it he can see Ramadan comes and it cures that overeating thing or it should. It should cure the overeating. And then the 80 Caf comes in it cures that disease of over socialized talking too much because what happens when people talk too much. Usually it goes from being something that is permissible to something that is in a gray area to something that is clearly hot

01:16:44--> 01:17:32

when they talk too much. And so we shouldn't be over socializing. nor should we be over sleeping, sleeping too much it kills the body. It kills them, we only have this one life here and in front of us to prepare ourselves for that meeting with the loss of data, the more you're sleeping and doing nothing. It is really just keeping you stagnant. It's not allowing you to move forward like he can. What is the virtue of it? You can the scholars of Islam have mentioned that it is by each Mac that it is Mr. Hebb that it is something that is highly desirable that a Muslim does analyze what Joe said in the Quran were hidden a lot. What are Hema? What is my ILA, and your RBT a little iffy will

01:17:32--> 01:17:56

atrophy, what would cause to do so that we commanded Ibrahim Ismail to purify my house for those making to all those making a T calf and those performing recuerde and sujood. So last year, Dad praised those who make 80 cat and we know that the practice of the Prophet it is Salatu was Salam was to perform and he kept

01:17:59--> 01:18:05

like going to mention, I guess we too, in order to save time,

01:18:06--> 01:18:24

in the form of question and answers, inshallah. So we need your participation. I'm going to ask you some questions about at Camp so that we can get the feel of this issue by is it permissible for a woman to make a T calf?

01:18:25--> 01:18:36

Yes, with three conditions. First, is that she has to be able to be in a state of purity, she cannot be on her menses or

01:18:37--> 01:18:52

any postpartum bleeding. She can't be experiencing postpartum bleeding. That's the first condition. The second is that Annie, as the scholar has mentioned that it should not create fitna temptations. So if for example, the messenger does not have a separate section,

01:18:54--> 01:19:06

and he for women, then in this scenario, they should not be performing palliative care, because the men are going to be sleeping here. It's not like they used to do in the past, they actually had tents. And in the past that they would set up

01:19:11--> 01:19:22

like, oh, the third condition is that she needs to have the permission of whoever is in charge of her affairs, whether that be your husband or a father, whoever that may be, like, second question.

01:19:25--> 01:19:27

Where is it the calf performed?

01:19:30--> 01:19:34

And the message type can a person perform at Caffe

01:19:36--> 01:19:37

in his or her house?

01:19:39--> 01:19:39

Hmm,

01:19:40--> 01:20:00

no, yes, Maybe so, but according to be by him, Allah said that is his man most of the scholars that there is consensus that it must be performed in a message analyzer which also will advise you hoonah pour into Mackie funa fill massaging and do not

01:20:00--> 01:20:24

Go to your wives intimately, while you are making edits you can in domestic, yes, the scholars of the Hanafi madhhab said that it is permissible for a woman to make a T calf in her home. However, there is no strong evidence for that at all. And so, if a person is going to make a decaf, it needs to be in domestic

01:20:26--> 01:20:33

does domestic Is it a condition that domestic be a jam it in the sense that they pray jumar at domestic

01:20:34--> 01:20:39

or can it be a domestic with the Jamaat is established but they don't pray your mind.

01:20:42--> 01:21:10

The second which is that it can be performed at any minister with the jamara is established that is the position of the majority of the scholars of Islam that as long as the jamara is established, then it is fine for you to make a T calf there for Juma however do not go early. And when you go to Juma you go a little before the sunlight and then you go back to your place of a T calf to the mesh that we making it you can

01:21:12--> 01:21:16

like when does a person enter the message?

01:21:18--> 01:21:21

For the one who wants to make a t care for the last 10 nights?

01:21:23--> 01:21:26

Before mug wrap on which which mug? Of what night?

01:21:27--> 01:21:38

The 21st night? Like what do you do with the Hadith where I shall be allowed to Anna said that the Prophet alayhi wa sallam would pray selectel

01:21:40--> 01:21:42

and then he would enter his place of at calf.

01:21:45--> 01:21:46

How do you say?

01:21:47--> 01:21:48

Yes?

01:21:49--> 01:21:50

Yeah.

01:21:52--> 01:22:20

Very good. Because see, it wasn't just that they made a T calf in domestic they actually had a place set up like I said they had tents that that were set up. That was where they went inside when it was time for at Camp so what we understand from this howdy most likely is that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was in the masjid from before Mother's Day. However, he didn't go into his place of at calf until after so lots of budget.

01:22:24--> 01:22:24

Next question,

01:22:27--> 01:22:33

what is the least that a person can perform at Caf the least the minimum amount of time that a person can perform it to get

01:22:36--> 01:22:38

24 hours one day?

01:22:39--> 01:22:41

One night 10 minutes

01:22:43--> 01:22:44

sorry.

01:22:46--> 01:22:47

Tonight

01:22:52--> 01:23:03

Hi. And the least is one night with Neela because Amaro the allowance data and who actually had mentioned to the prophets of light, it was something that he

01:23:04--> 01:23:08

made another an oath that he would make at Caf

01:23:09--> 01:23:30

before and Jerry Lee before Islam. So the prophets of light it was something told him to fulfill your another to fulfill your oath and that was one night. So that is the least amount of time and shallow that a person can perform it to get even though there are many, many scholars who say that you can go just from like McGriff to Asia. And you can make Nia for it. You can

01:23:32--> 01:23:59

however, one if you look at the word if you can, if we said it means what? I prefer to devote yourself to something to adhere to something. So it seems like the time needs to be a little bit more than simply any a few minutes. The last question and then we're going to talk in some detail in the next one not too much. But we need to talk about planning for the last 10 is is it permissible to leave the masjid once you have

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

actually made the intention for it?

01:24:03--> 01:24:09

Is it permissible to leave the masjid Once you have made the intention of it?

01:24:13--> 01:24:15

Yes, right now.

01:24:18--> 01:24:55

There's three types of leaving domestic one is the type that totally negates the objective of palliative care. So a person who leaves the message here because he wants to buy and sell and he wants to go to the soap he wants to, if he leaves for that reason as its cap has become null and void. The second type of leaving the message it is the opposite of that it is what is absolutely necessary. So a person for example, if he doesn't have anyone bringing food or drink to the message and he has to eat and drink, he needs to go outside the message to relieve himself he would need to leave the best way to make muscle for example, for July or for other than July. He's going to need

01:24:55--> 01:24:56

to leave the message

01:24:57--> 01:24:59

The third type of leaving the messages

01:25:00--> 01:25:40

is for something that is normally legislatively desirable like visiting the sick or following the gymnasts or something like that. And I need the scholars say that if a person stipulates before going into at camp, it's known as lsttl art that he stipulates before going into ettercap, that he will visit the sick or that, you know, for example, someone may be dying or something like that. And he doesn't want, you know, to not visit them on a daily basis, that if he stipulates that at the beginning of his Etsy camp, that as part of his Nia, that he needs to go visit them, and there is no harm in doing so. willows Anahata. Anna, Anna, last thing that we want to talk about, and probably

01:25:40--> 01:25:43

it is the combination of everything that we've talked about right now.

01:25:44--> 01:26:25

And that is, now that we are more aware inshallah, of the importance of these last 10 nights. And we know the importance of later to cut it and that it can be in any of these 10 nights. What are we going to do? What is our action plan? What are our goals in these last two nights for ourselves, for our families, for our children, because it whiny, we prepare for just about everything. And when you go grocery shopping, don't usually have a list. That list means you prepare for something very trivial. And it's just groceries.

01:26:26--> 01:26:49

You go on a trip to anywhere you know, you have some type of preparation, you have some type of preparation in mind, I want you to do right now is for those of you who have pen and paper in front of them, you're going to write for those of you who don't, you can pull out your smartphones or whatever other smart device you might have. Please right now shall look. And you have

01:26:50--> 01:26:52

two and a half minutes Exactly.

01:26:53--> 01:27:09

To write down some of the things that you are looking to accomplish in these last 10 nights. Write them down now with me like you have two and a half minutes. What do you want to get accomplished for yourself. And the last few nights we counted, we have two minutes and 20 seconds remaining.

01:27:17--> 01:27:19

Don't cheat off your neighbor.

01:28:03--> 01:28:05

We have about a minute left.

01:28:07--> 01:28:09

Real measurable goals.

01:28:11--> 01:28:15

Something that you can come later and say Alhamdulillah I accomplished it.

01:28:36--> 01:28:37

30 seconds.

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

Five seconds.

01:29:06--> 01:29:07

Five more seconds.

01:29:10--> 01:29:24

But don't put your pens down because I want you to write down the good stuff that you hear from other people and tell us to keep keep your things out and then we'll write Does anyone want to share something that they think is a good idea? For the last 10 nights? Yes, please.

01:29:26--> 01:29:26

Sorry.

01:29:28--> 01:29:31

To read tips to put on good. You have one in mind.

01:29:36--> 01:29:36

Okay,

01:29:39--> 01:29:41

good. Let me just Yeah, go ahead. Anybody else?

01:29:44--> 01:29:44

Yes.

01:29:47--> 01:29:50

Okay, so he said memorize just 30

01:29:51--> 01:29:52

and he just

01:29:54--> 01:29:59

finished the Koran as in another reading it. Okay.

01:30:02--> 01:30:02

Be

01:30:03--> 01:30:07

What's that? Must be? Oh, so that just be like,

01:30:09--> 01:30:10

I'll comment in a second.

01:30:11--> 01:30:12

Now.

01:30:14--> 01:30:18

Okay. You said make it decaf at least once.

01:30:20--> 01:30:23

Okay, commas I got you. Okay. Yeah.

01:30:26--> 01:30:26

Sorry.

01:30:29--> 01:30:29

Excellent.

01:30:31--> 01:30:32

Yeah, yes.

01:30:35--> 01:30:43

talk less Eat, eat less and sleep less good. Uh huh. Increase in sadhaka increase insulin. Okay, excellent. Yeah.

01:30:45--> 01:30:47

Make more. Good.

01:30:50--> 01:30:50

Sugar.

01:30:51--> 01:30:54

Thanks a lot. Okay, bye.

01:30:56--> 01:30:56

Sorry,

01:30:57--> 01:31:31

learn new, type good. So I'm going to comment on some of those. And I'm going to make some other suggestions and shout out to it. Hopefully, in something that is mentioned, you'll find a way to implement at least some of the latter add on to some of the goals that you've already have for yourself. But as it relates to salaat, at SBA, then that Hadith that mentioned selected to be, according to many of the scholars of Hadith, even though I'm very aware that some of the contemporary scholars have said that it is, has an affair.

01:31:32--> 01:31:44

Many of the early scholars of Hadith said that that Hadith is weak, some of them even said that it is fabricated. So I would recommend in terms of selected to speak, that you don't do selected CSV,

01:31:45--> 01:32:06

and that you focus more on the other forms of worship that are firmly established on the prophet Isaiah salatu salam that he used to do them. And there's plenty, plenty of things that the prophet SAW is something for sure, that he did that we don't even need to implement in our daily lives. So in terms of

01:32:08--> 01:32:11

finishing any reading the Quran, one we should spend

01:32:12--> 01:32:19

less, let me take a step back, let me take a step back, I want you to look at, I want you to look at the last 10

01:32:20--> 01:33:08

from three angles. Because if you remember what we started with, we started with the fact that this month has been established, or that the fasting has been prescribed upon us to so that we can attain taqwa. And that the last 10 or that final push, and that we should push ourselves to the to our personal limits. And he that we really should exhaust ourselves and on the day of the eat, we should be kind of tired, worn out because we pushed ourselves. And then that is a true celebration, when you actually exhausted yourself and then there's a celebration afterwards. So, I want us to look at three things because I think that these three things are realistic things that we can implement that

01:33:08--> 01:33:22

will carry over even outside of the month of Ramadan and much of which we have mentioned is or can be incorporated in it. The first thing is demeanor, demeanor, what I mean by the word demeanor.

01:33:23--> 01:33:27

What I mean is how you carry yourself as a Muslim.

01:33:28--> 01:33:57

This goes back to what we started talking about. And that is that you recognize that you have one master. So Hannah who would add and that no one else, you are not going to do anything that displeases him to please anybody else. This is when you become not just a real Muslim, but this is how you attain true dignity. This is how people can look at him and say, Look, I might not agree with everything. He says everything but they have to respect you.

01:33:59--> 01:34:13

As a Muslim man as a Muslim woman, because you are not subservient to any one else except for last Peridot. That demeanor you can carry that with you. You can start because you'll be tested. You'll be tested.

01:34:14--> 01:34:24

Tomorrow, the next day, sometime in the last 10 nights around let's see, do you really put a lot of a gel over the creation or not? Your demeanor should show

01:34:25--> 01:34:28

that's how you become a real man a real woman

01:34:29--> 01:34:53

is that Allah azza wa jal is your master subhana wa tada because that is what frees you from bondage to anything else and having your hearts attached in it. That's what I mean when I say demeanor. I want you to go into the last 10 thinking about that. When you are tested when something comes in front of you, when it is time for salaat but there's this important business meeting going on.

01:34:55--> 01:35:00

As you say, look, as important as it is. This is more important right now. Give me five minutes

01:35:01--> 01:35:04

Whatever the case may be, because different things come up,

01:35:05--> 01:35:47

your demeanor has to change that can carry over with because looks panela this is what we've been training ourselves for will lie we only leave these natural cravings that we have allies with Joseph in the cm, and all of the actions of any atom are multiplied tend to 700 times in the cm, except for fasting for in the who lead well as Zb, except for fasting is for me, I reward for it taraka time who was alaba who was shot what's the human edge Lee, he left off his food, his drinking his desires, these natural carnal desires that we have in these cravings, we left them for a lot.

01:35:48--> 01:36:37

And if we can do that for a month, in terms of leaving those natural cravings that we have them be in the lead that is what creates that relationship with a lot of hand with the added out demeanors. The second thing that I want you to look at going into the last 10 that should carry over is your character, which is a bit different than the word demeanor character, meaning that you work on certain traits. And the scholars of Islam have mentioned that there are four ahaadeeth that serve as the soul as the foundation for our character as Muslims. I'm not going to mention all four of them, I want to mention two because those are the two I want you to work on. And this last and these last

01:36:37--> 01:36:46

10 men Canada you can overlay with your man as his failure. Cool. Hi, Ron odious. This is a foundation of the character of the Muslim.

01:36:47--> 01:36:59

Whoever believes that Allah and the Last Day, you believe you have a creator. And you believe in that last day when you will go back to him that let him say that which is good or Be quiet.

01:37:02--> 01:37:24

Look at every these last 10 look at every word that comes out of your mouth and measure it before it comes out. Think Is that a good thing to say if I said that about so and so? Would it be disturbed by me saying that? Would he be angry with me for saying that? And if he would be, then don't say it unless there's a clear benefit? And which is a separate topic.

01:37:25--> 01:37:35

Don't say? Be careful about the words that come out of your mouth be a positive person. So jaquan Hi, Ron. This is better.

01:37:36--> 01:37:38

The problem? Sorry, some didn't say fell Yes.

01:37:39--> 01:37:45

Oh, you're cool. Hey, Ron. He didn't say be silent. Or say that which he says say that which is good, this is better.

01:37:46--> 01:37:55

And if you can't figure out something good to say if you can't figure out some way to be positive, then be quiet. This is from this is what our Prophet alayhi salatu salam told is not me.

01:37:57--> 01:38:13

folio, cool. Hi, Ron odious measure your speech. In the last 10 it's a good time to get used to it the same way that you look at what goes into your mouth and you make sure that nothing goes in because you're fasting, watch what comes out.

01:38:15--> 01:38:16

The second Hadeeth

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

is

01:38:20--> 01:38:22

the statement of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam.

01:38:24--> 01:38:25

Now, you know,

01:38:26--> 01:38:50

I had to come head to head believe he may you hibou enough see that none of you has faith has he meant until he loves for his brother, what he loves for himself. This is a foundation of our as Muslims, that you only do to your brother, which you would have done to you.

01:38:52--> 01:38:59

You don't do things that are going to disturb him, things that are going to annoy him things that are going to cause him harm.

01:39:00--> 01:39:18

Because you will not want that to come back to you notice that in your dealings with people in these last 10 years. Extremely important that we implement that in the night and maybe at a future time we'll talk about all four Howdy. And he does serve as the foundation that all of Islamic character comes back to that.

01:39:20--> 01:39:23

So we have demeanor, we have character.

01:39:24--> 01:39:26

The last and final thing

01:39:27--> 01:39:29

is worship.

01:39:30--> 01:39:38

worship of Allah Subhana who was added what is it that we can go into these last 10 with that we can also come out with

01:39:40--> 01:39:46

Okay, and what should they produce? So this is where many of the things that you mentioned, I'm going to restrict it to

01:39:47--> 01:39:48

the worship of the tongue

01:39:51--> 01:39:57

which I'll break down into two parts because you brothers mentioned do I and you mentioned the Quran

01:39:59--> 01:40:00

recitation of

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

crime.

01:40:02--> 01:40:12

The best that you can make during the last 10 nights is the day that the promise of lighter was seldom taught to our mother I shall have the low tide and

01:40:14--> 01:40:16

acidic, acidic.

01:40:17--> 01:40:23

She went to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, she said to him or ATIA and wife, Dr.

01:40:24--> 01:40:28

Lila, toccata de mer oofy

01:40:29--> 01:40:54

the prophets of light it was some of them said to her, Cooley, Allah home in the womb to hibel Alpha five whiny she said to the Prophet I did so that was sitting in for me or message of Allah. If I make it too late, it'll cut off and if it happens that I am Yanni well fuck to who I need that I know which night it is that I know that it's a little cutter.

01:40:55--> 01:40:56

What should I say?

01:40:59--> 01:41:06

Notice that she didn't say What should I do? She said What should I say? Because Ramadan is a month of

01:41:07--> 01:41:19

and we benefit that from this hadith. She said she asked him, What should I say? The Prophet sallahu wa sallam said, say, Oh Allah, you are alive who you are the one who parties

01:41:22--> 01:41:24

in the crowd, who would you love pardoning

01:41:25--> 01:42:02

fact whitening, so Pardon me. And there's a difference between a little fly and Allahu Allah from from Guevara, which means to cover something and to overlook it. Allahu is from allow, which means to totally erase it. So when you ask the lies with gel for Allah, Who you are asking him to totally erase that sin and any effects that it might have had might have. An Ghufron also is for allies with job to cover that sin that you may have had and so overlook it. But when you say Aloma in the guy who won and if there was anything better, that we could be saying in terms of

01:42:04--> 01:42:12

in the last 10 nights, then for sure, the prophet alayhi salatu salam would have taught the most beloved person to him, I shall be alongside and

01:42:13--> 01:42:14

so the fact that he taught him

01:42:16--> 01:42:48

to Hebrew language, five whiny is an indication that this is the best thing that a person can say, in those last 10 nights, obviously, is going to be difficult for a person to say that for 30 minutes for an hour. So yes, you're going to be making other forms of law. But just to know that this is one of the two hours that you should learn inshallah, if you haven't already memorized it, and that you should say it often. And there are many other dyes that you can learn in sha Allah and save them in the last 10 nights. As far as the Quran

01:42:49--> 01:43:31

and the recitation of the Quran, then there's no doubt about it, that a Muslim should strive to recite the book of a loss of Hannah who would tada because it was sent down as she fat. It was sent down as a cure for to cure the hearts. It was sent down as a Rama and immersi for the believers. However, one thing that I do want to mention, because many of us we get excited when we read the Athol or some of the narrations of the seller, and this one used to finish the Quran every two nights in Ramadan. This one finished the Quran every three nights in Ramadan. This one like Imam Shafi would do 60 customers in Ramadan. And so we get excited and we want to do how to Makati,

01:43:31--> 01:43:39

Mahatma, you know and everything. Koran was revealed for the purpose of contemplating

01:43:41--> 01:43:57

keytab one answer now mubaraka Leah Deb baru is a blessing book that we have sent down so that you can ponder and contemplate its meanings. So for the brother that mentioned over here at FCM

01:43:59--> 01:44:38

Zach a locator for mentioning tough seed. Because for many of us, we don't know what we're reading when we just read the Arabic And yes, there's blessing in the Quran. Without a doubt every letter you're going to get a Hashanah. But that's not the objective of the Quran that we just recite, recite, and we don't know what it's talking about. So there is no harm in reading a translation of the Quran. There is no harm whatsoever in picking up Tafseer in English, for example, and I recommend this to see it a Sadie the lead it's been translated with the only thing that's been printed is the last three Jews of Quran from cut semiotic Jews to bodycon Jews, I'm 28 29th and

01:44:38--> 01:44:59

30th. His Tafseer is beautiful, because it is not a Tafseer that just goes i is the medic, and it covers the themes. And so is a very beautiful text here and I recommend it. And I recommend that you only we have to look at it from the look of our worship of Allah what data is that we have that we do various forms of the bad

01:45:00--> 01:45:09

So that we don't get tired of doing one thing. There's no harm in saying that, I need that. And Nicholas, you you at this point, you've prayed so much that you aren't

01:45:10--> 01:45:48

any, that you need to look for something else to do. So you can stop and read the Quran. And now you've read the Quran. Now you want to make that and you want to stop, maybe you can start praying again, now you want to read Tafseer you want to keep yourself busy doing those things which are going to benefit you in the land, he had to tell you. Some of the other things that were mentioned, were at camp, which I think that everybody in shallow outsider can do. Even if it's just for one night, even if you can do it one night, and then you can't do it for two and then you go back for night. All of that is permissible giving sadaqa and I recommend this highly, because remember,

01:45:48--> 01:46:29

you're talking about being nice, every night is better for you. If you have $100 that you want to give sadaqa to give $10 every night because inshallah you hit later to cut it into just give 100 at one time. So it's better for you to split it out to make sure that every night you are giving sadaqa and if every night you can feed a fasting person that would be great your neighbor, take them something so that they can break their fast with it or somebody because if you feed a fasting person, then you get the reward of the one who fasted. So that's another idea that you can do tough to assign me I need to feed someone who was fasting in the last 10 nights. One of the things that

01:46:29--> 01:46:43

you brothers mentioned and this comes under the next category so I said worship of the tongue and then I mentioned I'm going to mention Ocelot. You know the brothers mentioned PM, the other brother mentioned selected test B

01:46:46--> 01:46:49

and tahajjud and these types of things. But yes one

01:46:50--> 01:46:52

Don't forget salata Asia

01:46:53--> 01:47:06

that's a site of pleasure. And because these are the things that carry over it so many times during the year people just lazy I mean they're not praying hmm and if you pray selectively, Shan domestic. What's the reward?

01:47:07--> 01:47:17

Slightly prayed half the night is written for us if you pray after night when you pray fudging the message is written it for you as if you prayed the entire night. So if a person only Subhanallah let's just say that

01:47:19--> 01:47:47

he's a surgeon or something like that and he's got to work and he the whole night he's performing surgery but he prayed that he sent them a domestic and allies with your blessing to pray for them as it is as if he prayed the entire night and his Leyland from Qatar and then as rewarded as if he did it for 1000 months you understand? So don't forget the things that alliance with Joel has obligated upon you because these are the things that you have to take out with you outside of Ramadan and likewise even those last 10 nights

01:47:48--> 01:47:59

when you are performing tahajjud you're praying for a long time hour and a half two hours three hours yeah see the night of the Eat Pray even if it's just

01:48:00--> 01:48:10

extra panela You don't know how many Muslims Colossians one Ramadan is over they don't know anything called can we'll leave you with

01:48:11--> 01:48:18

any holiday we wait till next Ramadan if you can pray with life you can pray for an hour and a half How long does it take to pray winter?

01:48:19--> 01:48:32

See if you can fast for an entire month How much does it take to fast one day out the month two days, three days which was with the profit so it sort of recommended for his companions to do to pay three days out of every month.

01:48:34--> 01:48:42

So you can do it for an entire month. Take these things outside of Ramadan with you I think that I'm going to stop there

01:48:44--> 01:48:57

to either there's a lot more that could be mentioned but we're going to leave time for question and answers inshallah tada The last thing that I would like to say and I mentioned it in passing, but I mentioned it again inshallah is to

01:48:59--> 01:49:09

and he remained vigilant of yourselves in the last 10 nights of Ramadan and do not allow yourself to do anything

01:49:10--> 01:49:39

that is haram or disliked by loss of habitat, and don't waste your time. Do not waste your time in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. All of the things that you think that you need to do in the lab they can wait until either after Ramadan is over, or at least until after. But do not waste your time on social media, Whatsapp texting and all of these other things that you unless it is something that is here that you are spreading to the people and that's a different story. Heather Willow Adam, so low sun robotic, and then

01:49:44--> 01:49:55

we start the question and answer the sisters have given the question in the written it down. There's a mic in the two mics in the brothers area. We'll start off with the question from the sister in Sharla.

01:49:56--> 01:49:59

What is the best for a woman to pray at home or sit

01:50:00--> 01:50:16

In Attica and mustard, or to sit in here to get ethical convulsive reffering adding on to it husband doesn't prevent her to go. But he dislikes he wants her to pray at home. What should this woman do? Hi hamdulillah banana Musa la Sana robotic and, and Amina Mohammed Lada

01:50:18--> 01:51:06

here, there's a principle that you all should memorize, be aware of and implemented in your life that is that unfolded, and will be gradually better McDonald further and mechanically better, that the virtue that is related directly related to the worship itself takes precedence over the place that the worship is performed. So, in this scenario, we know that it is better to pray in our home, that's the best place for a woman to pray, the prophet is allowed to sit and sit into the front is squished like this. And you can barely do tech theater. So they come on. And you have no for sure. And you're salaat or very little, because of the fact that you're uncomfortable. Is the front row

01:51:06--> 01:51:10

still better for this person? Or is it better for him to backup to a place where he's gonna have some?

01:51:11--> 01:51:18

Spare? It's a backup? Yes. Why? Because the virtue that is related to the salon itself to that a bed which is crucial,

01:51:20--> 01:51:26

takes precedence over the place that the bed is performed. So here, if a woman

01:51:28--> 01:51:32

feels more feels closer to our last panel to add

01:51:33--> 01:51:38

in domestic in the last 10, if she was the stay at home, she'd be falling asleep.

01:51:40--> 01:51:46

And she doesn't know a lot of Quran for example, she finds it difficult, and it's much easier for her to pray behind the commandment

01:51:47--> 01:52:33

than it is in this scenario. It is better for her to pray at the masjid. Even though even though in general, the best place for a woman to pray is in her home. As for the situation where her husband dislikes it, then it's difficult for me to answer that question because I'm not sure what it is that he dislikes about it. Does he dislike the place that the mesh is in and so there is fitna or there's, you know, other things involved their children. So it's very difficult. I can't answer the question in detail. But if the brothers dislike was for the religious reason that he believes it's better for her to pray pray in her home than he should allow her to pray and domestic because in

01:52:33--> 01:52:42

this scenario, it's actually better for her to pray and domestic and have the assurance in her salon and to feel closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. Hello, Adam.

01:52:48--> 01:53:01

This is a question where people tagged the 10 days of Ramadan and like the first 10 days is called Rama the second 10 days, 10 days? What's the authenticity about it? No Hades life?

01:53:02--> 01:53:05

That's not that particular question from the brothers.

01:53:06--> 01:53:51

And let me let me say this since the issue of women woman came up, and a lot of times when a woman is experiencing or menstrual cycle in the last 10 nights she feels deprived, you know, because she can't pray but there's so many other things that that she can do in the last 10 to gain reward. Like we mentioned any feeding. The people who have fasted is a great reward for that to give sadaqa she can do that. To read the Quran from memory, she can do that to read tafsir she can do that to make dua to Allah subhana wa tada she can do that to make dhikr of Allah subhanho wa Tada, she can do that. So there are so many things that she can do and if she truly has the ardent desire to worship

01:53:51--> 01:54:22

Allah subhana wa Tada. In those last 10 years, she's going to be rewarded for her for her intention without a doubt, without a doubt, and she should be certain of that that allies will reward her for intention. And as the prophets of light it was suddenly said in a hadith either set up on a lab. Oh Mariela, who diva del Makana, Yama who saw him even if a person travels or he gets sick, it will be written for him what he used to do when he was a resident and feeling well when he was healthy.

01:54:24--> 01:54:36

How Likewise, if there is something that prevents someone from doing something that they normally did, that they would normally do, because of a legislative reasoning or legislative reason, they'll be in the lights and they will still receive the reward.

01:54:38--> 01:54:39

Right.

01:54:41--> 01:54:41

So

01:54:42--> 01:54:51

I need to sit down after lunch meal is it better for a brother to pray to the family at home or in the gym with him?

01:54:54--> 01:55:00

again, it goes back to the same principle that we already mentioned. He follows his heart. You should follow his heart.

01:55:00--> 01:55:04

So if he feels more comfortable he may be

01:55:06--> 01:55:49

some people or people have to cry. That's what they do. There is not a Ramadan thing for them, they pray 200 every night and sometimes, I mean, you know, some people are praying four or five Jews every night, outside of Ramadan. And if that's the normal practice, and they feel more comfortable staying in the home, and doing that, then they should do what they feel more comfortable with, because it's a bow getting closer to Allah Subhana, who was added, obviously, there's a reward for coming together for praying, Annie, in Jamaica, for the man making, do I. And it's a time when it's likely to be accepted and these types of things, but if a person and he feels more comfortable, and

01:55:49--> 01:55:54

they're home, then let them pray in their home 210.

01:55:57--> 01:56:03

adding on to the question, someone says here, have the parallel start on the 15th of this month.

01:56:04--> 01:56:06

What now, on the 15th of Ramadan, they start,

01:56:07--> 01:56:08

they started.

01:56:11--> 01:56:12

I mean, at the end of the day,

01:56:15--> 01:56:32

the issue of the night prayer is, is not something restricted to the last 10 any as a matter of fact, I don't know any evidence for it the way that it's normally done now, which is that you know that there's a prayer

01:56:34--> 01:56:40

10 or 20 Records and then people come back, this was done at the time of the cell if they call the TAC team,

01:56:41--> 01:56:50

which is where they pray and then the people go home and then they come back out. And the majority of the scholars held that to be something that was permissible and fine.

01:56:52--> 01:57:09

However, to restrict it to only the last 10 or to the last 15 or to the first there is no there is nothing that restriction. So if people are praying to Hadoop with the economy to hide you, by the way, is a term so look so that we understand everything seriously, I think we need to take a step back.

01:57:11--> 01:57:30

Anything that is pre after salata, Alicia, from an after the too soon as Anthony shut up until fudger, all of that is called PM, LA, the MLA, then there are specific terms. So for example,

01:57:31--> 01:57:55

the select that the Muslims pray in Ramadan, where it's supposed to be any or the way that the prophet SAW them would do for rock x, and E two, two and then rest, then two, two, and then rest. That was called Tara we from La Jolla, and that there would be some type of rest. Okay, so that's what the pm a late in Ramadan, they call it Tada. We,

01:57:56--> 01:57:57

if you go to sleep,

01:57:58--> 01:58:22

and you wake back up and pray, then that is called 200. It is only called 200. If you're going to sleep, it doesn't matter what time of night it is, if it's one o'clock two o'clock at night, which you haven't gone to sleep, it's not called to only call 200 if you actually want to sleep and gotten back up. So the pm tm will lay is all of that. And then it has specific titles that are attached.

01:58:23--> 01:58:23

Now

01:58:29--> 01:59:12

in case we go for one night, at the gaff, how do we get in? I mean, what is the Nia or what is the process we need to for making it to get yeah for one night, you simply when you walk into the message, I mean you have it in your heart that you are going to stay in the masjid until whenever it is that you plan on leaving and if it said budget for example, and you have the intention of being in seclusion. So what that means is that when you go into the message, your intention is staying there for the worship of Allah and with that, that is what that is what it is. It is seclusion in domestic for the purpose of worshiping Allah Subhana who was added so there's nothing that you say

01:59:12--> 01:59:46

specifically, it's just an intention that you have and your heart, but you should fulfill that intention. So you should not go into the message. And this is a big mistake that many people do now Etsy Caf Etsy cap is like a hangout for a lot of people. So his home he is you know, in the back of the masjid and his other crew is over on the left side. And he goes from like, you know, side to side and they kick it in a talk and everything like that. And that's not it. That's hanging out in the masjid. That's not being secluded in domestic for the worship of a loss of Hannah who wants

01:59:49--> 02:00:00

to go guess this question from the sister side is if a lady misses the past due to pregnancy is it compulsory to pass for what she's missed? Or they can give food or any other substance

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

To the opinion of the early scholars of Islam, including the 40 mams, is that she has to make up the fast. And some of them include that she has to make up the fast and feet, but I don't believe that that position is strong. And the stronger opinion is that she does have to make up the fast if she broke her fast due to pregnancy, and

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

Annie

02:00:26--> 02:01:07

as a side point, because a lot of people say, oh, but that's a hardship and then you know, she's going to be pregnant and then she's going to be breastfeeding and then nobody said that she can't fast when she's pregnant, or when she's breastfeeding. The issue comes in usually when there's consecutive fasts. So for a woman who is breastfeeding in the winter, and the kid is five months old, I need the if she for example, if she fasts on a Monday and then she doesn't fast again until Thursday or she doesn't fast again for that whole week and then she felt Okay, it's not going to affect the milk it's not going to affect her milk and she is from amongst the people who last kind

02:01:07--> 02:01:48

of data has addressed when he says women can have in common even a lot of suffering very determined a woman or whoever foremost who is sick or fasting then they must make up an equal number of days later and so allies which doesn't put a burden on a person more than they can bear so for example, just so that we clear she's pregnant this Ramadan and the days are long and hot and it be extremely difficult for her to fast or may cause harm to the leaves off the fast but she has another 325 days lunar until next Ramadan to make up the 30 days and therefore she can figure out a way to fast the day here and a day there until she makes it up in the light

02:01:51--> 02:01:52

brothers fight

02:01:56--> 02:01:57

so now I think

02:01:59--> 02:02:53

there's some confusion Some people say that 27th is their bodies that says the 27th is specifically not preferred. Yeah, OBEY Him in cab. Well the loads Anna and whoever what are the Aloha and also supported that opinion that little cutter is the 27th night of Ramadan and perhaps that is because at one year or two years or maybe more they experienced that which indicated to them that lay little cutter was on that particular night because there are signs that have been mentioned that indicate what little cut it is for example, the sun and coming up the next day without the rays being very bright. So it comes up white almost, you know without like the like it comes into Hades like a brass

02:02:53--> 02:02:56

dish. Okay. So

02:02:57--> 02:03:22

Yani, perhaps perhaps it was something that they believe to be but again, there are other from amongst the companions, other narrations as well as from the Tabby that differ with that. And the there's nothing conclusive from the Sunnah of the prophet Isaiah Salatu was sent him himself that indicates that it was the 27th night and for that reason to bravas light, it was something

02:03:23--> 02:03:45

that I should look for it in the last night, had had it been the 27th night and that was something that would have been good for us to the prophets of light, it was something would have had to inform the oma that's his job. So the law it was on him. So because we don't get that from the Prophet it is what it was today, then there's no way that we can say definitively that it's the 27th

02:03:48--> 02:03:49

regarding the ethical

02:03:50--> 02:04:35

ones doing a 10 days of ethical life, and he needs to go out for work in between what's ruling on that law, then you can't if you need to go out for work, then you can't make a T cap on those days that you are going out for work. But what you can do is stay in domestic for extended periods of time. For example, a person may their Nia, maybe it's from 90 Muslim, for example, until budget, and then you have to go to work and then they start a new intention The next day, and he wants to go back. But you can't you can't say that it's a T calf. And he straight into care for 10 days and then you're going out to work because that's not the end of that totally objects. Yeah. Or it goes

02:04:35--> 02:04:37

against the the objective of

02:04:39--> 02:04:44

the book you mentioned if you can recollect the name for the book you're referring to.

02:04:46--> 02:04:47

I don't know Tafseer.

02:04:49--> 02:04:53

Oh, it's called tipsy. The way to write in an English is tipsy a Sadie.

02:04:55--> 02:04:59

Sadie. It's the last it's the last three

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

of Quran that they've printed so far even though the translation is complete,

02:05:06--> 02:05:07

only the last three have been printed

02:05:11--> 02:05:15

for an everyday reading

02:05:17--> 02:05:41

to me, I prefer it over its FCA advocacy for everyday reading for the student. And for those who are trying to get a more in depth look at rulings and these types of things than advocates, he is definitely any more comprehensive, but to see the Sadie is more of a, a nurturing type of Tafseer pulling out some of the more subtle meanings from the Quran. And in a thematic, like,

02:05:43--> 02:05:45

take the last question from the brothers.

02:05:57--> 02:05:58

I want to come

02:05:59--> 02:06:02

to your opinion on this a lot to be can you explain that?

02:06:03--> 02:06:10

You reserve your opinion on Serato per se, then you can take another question my opinion on selected CSV is that you should not pre selected CSV.

02:06:16--> 02:06:17

The last question inshallah.

02:06:19--> 02:06:31

Assalamu alaikum is to be getting a ticket. Actually, we're clear about the ethical of Ramadan, but as a son of our brother, is there any ethic of outside Ramadan?

02:06:32--> 02:06:41

Can you make it to camp outside of Ramadan? By the scholars, there's consensus amongst the scholars that it can be made year round, anytime during the year.

02:06:42--> 02:06:54

But the prophets of light was none of his practice was consistent practice was the last 10 nights of Ramadan then before he died, the last 20 nights of Ramadan

02:06:56--> 02:07:00

and you were looking over a year ago you said Didn't we Oh Prelinger for Pollyanna

02:07:01--> 02:07:10

llamas living in Edina and and it was unbeknownst to me and it was the internet affiliates do not watch

02:07:14--> 02:07:14

Michel

02:07:15--> 02:07:17

shadowline stuff

02:07:20--> 02:07:47

for giving us your valuable time and inshallah we wish to see you more often with kalama and in Dubai in Sharla. With this we come to the end of the lecture in Sharla. please do join us for a star and then we go home. salata. Mataram inshallah la me for Hatton the Prophet sallahu wa sallam said, therefore the one was fasting as to times of enjoyment. One is when he's breaking the fast, and one is when he meets a lot.

02:07:48--> 02:08:20

So we're gonna break the fast and by the way, though, just as a side point that that had these many of us believe that it means we were enjoying the fact that we are breaking the fast. It's enjoying the fact that Eliza gel has guided you to the end of the fast and that you have been blessed, fast another day pleasing the loss of habitat and no doubt that there's enjoyment and what we eat and what we drink, when we do so. The other thing is that we only have maybe 10 minutes or so left

02:08:22--> 02:08:49

in the in the night and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam encouraged us to make that in the last hour of July that it is a time that is accepted. And likewise the blog the fasting person is accepted in the lab. So we should take advantage of the time that we have right now. To make life for ourselves and the Muslims in general and our families and the leaders of the Muslims to the end who lives

02:08:52--> 02:08:53

in Santa Monica
