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

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim

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

trophy

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

Santa

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

salatu salam ala nabina Muhammad in

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

the lesson actually is an English.

00:00:55--> 00:01:06

We spoke in the previous lesson about the virtue of efficacy and some of the rulings related to Alessi, Kevin some kind of law. Eliza gel has blessed us

00:01:07--> 00:01:11

because the last 10 nights of Ramadan has begun.

00:01:13--> 00:01:33

And this is what the true believers yearn for in the month of Ramadan they seek out the last 10 nights to dedicate themselves to the worship of Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is the time that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would exert himself. like no other time of the year, I felt the low tide and

00:01:35--> 00:02:04

reported that the province that a lot of it was sonoma county and state of Alaska, Alaska. Man I used to be writing that the power salvati was solemn would exert himself, and the last 10 nights of Ramadan in a manner that he would not do so at any other time of the year. So if we look at this as a race, as a race to the forgiveness of Allah subhanho, wa Tada, and a race to His mercy,

00:02:06--> 00:02:20

then this is the last lap. This is the last time that we are going to round the track and the races always won at the end. This is when a person can determine to see how much he has left in him how

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

much he really wants to win,

00:02:25--> 00:02:27

and how much he is scared of being a loser.

00:02:28--> 00:02:36

And this is the way that the purpose of the law it was Selim described the one who makes it to Ramadan, but it's not forgiven,

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

the one who makes it to Ramadan.

00:02:41--> 00:02:49

And he is able to fast in the month of Ramadan, and Allah blesses him to make it to Ramadan, and he's not forgiving of his sin. And this person is a loser.

00:02:51--> 00:03:24

And jabril it is to them may drag is this person. And he sent me a long distance, the one who makes it the Ramadan and is not forgiven. And he told the province on the line it was some to say I mean, so the province of a lot he was an upset me, because a person who knows the virtue of this month and especially the last 10 days and doesn't strive for it, then that means he really doesn't want it. And that person doesn't want the mercy of a loss of hair without and turns his back on the mercy of a loss of Canada with that is indeed a loser.

00:03:26--> 00:03:29

And we look at it for example, just the heading of the province of Allied

00:03:31--> 00:03:33

men karma, Lena toccata.

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

Eman and YT seven.

00:03:40--> 00:03:55

Whoever stands on a little further our true belief and allows me to add on what he has prepared for the believers and hoping for his reward. And he will have all of his previous sins forgiven.

00:03:57--> 00:04:04

Either the person or the person who doesn't seek out labor to cut it after knowing that then he's one of two people.

00:04:05--> 00:04:12

He either doesn't believe what the prophet sallallahu wasallam said, and he's a loser. As a result.

00:04:14--> 00:04:23

He really doesn't feel like he needs to be forgiving of his sins, and therefore he's a loser. And we'll go into a little bit more detail about that inshallah as we talk about later.

00:04:24--> 00:04:58

So, these last 10 nights are critical, because they are the seal of our DS in this one. They're the last things that we do. And as we know the province of the law and he was some said we'll have a team that actions are how they are concluded Jani, they're going to be judged based on how they are concluded. So we need to be very keen on making sure that we conclude the month of Ramadan in a fashion that is pleasing to Allah our data. The second reason why these last 10 are so important is because in them

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

There is the night known as later to Qatar and a loss of power data has dedicated an entire solar enterprise to Layla toccata. And I'm sure all of you have heard this aura and no disorder and memorize disorder.

00:05:15--> 00:05:28

But I still think is important to go over some of the meanings. If not just to discuss what does that mean because in English a lot of times they translate it as the night of power

00:05:29--> 00:06:00

or the night of the tree or the night of So, what what is later some other words, what does it mean and what does this sorta entail, what is it talking about? And then we want to talk about after talk discussing this or I shall have to talk about some of the other virtues of Laila Takada, some of the mistakes that many people make Elena Takada, or seeking out later on cousin and then a practical plan to take advantage of laser cutting and shallow data.

00:06:01--> 00:06:08

When it comes to laser toccata What's the first thing that you think of it? What's the first thing that a lot of people think of is? When

00:06:09--> 00:06:31

is it the 27th night? Is it the 23rd night? Can it be on even nights? Is it always the same? Every that's the first thing that most people think about when they think later to cut the 27th night? You know, if you were to play that game, you know I say something and then you say the first thing that comes to your mind, then that would probably say you say later talk other people say 27. So

00:06:33--> 00:06:40

what we need to look at here is is that the proper focus to have but when we look at the the

00:06:41--> 00:07:01

that discuss later, there's a different focus, actually, a lot of data says and the 97th surah of the Quran, he begins it by saying in Nyanza, now the negative. All right, and the word as it comes in the Quran later to

00:07:03--> 00:07:39

the the Qataris spell pop down. All right, the Dow has a sukoon on it, meaning that it's not. It doesn't it doesn't. It's not pronounced. It's not pronounced except for the first part of the letter doesn't have a valve on it. So you say, all right, but you can also say cut up with the Dow with the attack on the Dow. So it's pronounced both ways. But they have different meanings. With the with the sukoon on it, when it doesn't have a diacritical mark with the bow. What it means is that it's like they say in Arabic, who Raja Luna

00:07:40--> 00:07:54

nanny is someone who has a very high status. All right, so when we say later 200 It is a very, it's an honorable night and night of status and honor and dignity. That's on on the one hand, all right.

00:07:55--> 00:08:02

But the word caught up with the on the DA. So you would write it in English like QA da R.

00:08:04--> 00:08:17

That word is referring to the decree, the decree of Allah Subhana, who was added. And we know that a large chunk of the province of light it was some kind of a macabre evil

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

cobbler

00:08:20--> 00:08:31

will become Sina alpha said that the Allies would wrote the decree of all of the creation.

00:08:32--> 00:08:51

Before they are all human beings before they were created, before he created the heavens and the earth 50,000 years before he created the heavens and the earth. And not to go into a deep discussion about culture. But then we do need to understand some points here. What does that mean that Allah wrote it down?

00:08:52--> 00:08:58

Doesn't mean that allies force everyone to do what they're doing is forced to coupon to be coupon?

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

Or what exactly does it mean? cutter means or has four different stages, there's a large window of knowledge is

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

he knew everything that people were going to do before he created.

00:09:15--> 00:09:29

All right. And that's not a concept that we should look at as being something that's strange. First of all, he knows everything anyway. So he wrote those things down doesn't mean that he forced anyone to do anything the same way that you may know someone very well.

00:09:31--> 00:10:00

Or as an example, you know, someone very well you know, your child, for example. And if you give them a choice between chocolate and vegetables, they want to choose the chocolate over the vegetables. And you know that because you know your own child, or you know someone else if you give them a choice they're going to do whatever it is based on the choice that they are given. A large hotel doesn't force anyone to do anything. But he knows the choices that they're going to make for that provided the circumstances are based on the circumstances that they are at

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

They have. So they'll know that. So that's the first level if we look at of the content of the last kind of data, and then he wrote that down.

00:10:11--> 00:10:13

He wrote those things down and it preserved

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

or preserved tablet known as what alone

00:10:19--> 00:10:21

is he wrote that down in a low,

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

and allies with Joe wilt those things that happen, there's nothing to happen.

00:10:27--> 00:10:55

And we may look at those things as being good, or we may look at them as being bad, but aligns with Dell has wisdom and everything that he has decreed. And so he allows those things to happen. And he wills for those things to happen and nothing happens outside of the will of Allah subhana wa Tada. And then he creates, meaning that he creates the circumstances that bring those things into existence. This is the opposite of a loss of candle data. What does that mean in relationship to labor?

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

labor,

00:10:58--> 00:11:02

because they say, as the scholars say, there is what is known as

00:11:03--> 00:11:05

there is an annual decree.

00:11:07--> 00:11:56

But Ally's already wrote these things down 50,000 years before the creation of the heavens and earth. So what is the benefit of having an annual decree? The benefit is that the angels don't know what the laws of Canada with that as the allies with Jill's knowledge and his knowledge of the unseen and the angels don't know that until the loss of data informs them. So Laila Takada, Allah azza wa jal, the pre Danny he informed the angels of his decree for that year because the angels have jobs that they do there is an angel that takes the soul the angel of death, there is an angel that breathed into the fetus and bring the lights and write down it with Jani its provision for the

00:11:56--> 00:12:02

lifetime of that individual right now whether it is going to be successful or unsuccessful,

00:12:03--> 00:12:17

the angels bring down the rain by the permission of Allah and without us so for the year for the entire year that is indicated and revealed to the angels on labor.

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

So that is why it is also known as the night of the tree and I hope that point is clear that we don't think that there's a new decree that happened all a little further, but the angels are formed and it is revealed to them all a little further that's why I lost

00:12:38--> 00:12:44

the now in mubaraka we sent it down in a bless ignite

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

via your Roku

00:12:49--> 00:13:15

and that night all of the or daemon or the the matters the wise matters of Allah subhana wa tada are or date okay so they are revealed to the angels in that particular night that is laser cutter. And if we look at it, a lot of our data says in the karate the shadow Ramadan Allah The OCP

00:13:16--> 00:13:27

the month of Ramadan in which the Koran was sent down and this is now related to cotton, we send it down

00:13:28--> 00:13:41

a lot of cotton so that means that later toccata is in Ramadan. And if we put the two eyes together then we understand that the later two cabinet is in Ramadan

00:13:44--> 00:13:50

is another point. We know that the for the first is revealed in the Koran.

00:13:59--> 00:14:00

In the back what

00:14:03--> 00:14:06

Okay, nice was the last I reveal.

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

I can't hear you.

00:14:19--> 00:14:21

Somebody else say it because I can't hear

00:14:40--> 00:14:41

what's up yo yo man.

00:14:43--> 00:14:43

Illa

00:14:44--> 00:14:45

taqwa

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

here the day

00:14:48--> 00:14:52

that you will return back to Allah. Right.

00:14:53--> 00:14:57

time span between the revelation of those first

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

and the last

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

The last eye there was revealed 23 years. So what does that mean? The Quran was revealed in Ramadan, we know that it was revealed over a time period it wasn't just revealed in Ramadan. So what does that mean? The scholars have to see amongst them just to have a like, on the low fat and others mentioned that

00:15:23--> 00:15:31

the Quran was first revealed god he sent from the lowest metal to beat with the house of glory, which isn't the lowest heaven.

00:15:33--> 00:15:42

It was revealed at one time, the entire for us. At one time we sat down at what time from alliance with Joe from the low end

00:15:45--> 00:15:51

which is the which is the house of glory and the lowest heavens and from there jabril would

00:15:53--> 00:16:04

intermittently reveal it to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gradually over that period of 23 years over that period of 23 years. So in Atlanta,

00:16:06--> 00:16:41

it was set down by allies were down to the lowest heaven. Five, it is also said, but this is a last round of dominoes. But this is not the correct opinion. That initially when gibreel came to the practice of law, it was that it was only the focus initially on the province. I said it when jabril came to the province, I tell them that it was on Layla Takata. But that seems to be incorrect. Most of the historians take the opinion that the jabril came to the province of light it was sent them either on the 17th of Ramadan, or the 24th. of Ramadan

00:16:43--> 00:16:45

by him so when we look at this.

00:16:46--> 00:17:03

When we look at a little country, then we have the two meetings that we're looking at. and scholars have mentioned some other meanings, perhaps we'll come across them, maybe we won't, but the two most important meetings are that number one, that it is a very, it is a lateness sharifa it is a noble and honorable night,

00:17:04--> 00:17:12

on one hand, and on the other hand, it is the Night of Decree, in the sense that a loss of power with data reveals his degree to the agents.

00:17:13--> 00:17:22

pipe. So we want to look at some of the unique characteristics of later tilcon some of its unique characteristics. The first thing is that in

00:17:23--> 00:17:26

the poor it was revealed to mankind

00:17:27--> 00:17:33

and the Quran is one of the greatest gifts of Allah Subhana who would data to make

00:17:35--> 00:17:41

and one of the greatest, if not the greatest Mercy of Allah subhanho data to mankind. When you look at Sora

00:17:43--> 00:17:46

the idea always repeats itself

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

is for the

00:17:50--> 00:18:04

man to get the best of your Lords favors. Yeah, you mankind agenda, which of your Lords favors Will you deny? So soft rock man is about what? discussing the favorites of Allah

00:18:05--> 00:18:14

upon mankind? What's the second Iron Man after mentioned, his beautiful name, man, the Merciful?

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

What is the mercy

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

that he thought

00:18:21--> 00:18:35

and sort of serves as if not the greatest mercy of a loss of data to mankind than one of the greatest verses of Allah subhana wa Tada, or one of the greatest manifestations of His mercy to make god

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

man who was Shiva, we sat down from the Quran, that which is a cure. Yeah, you

00:18:48--> 00:18:49

know,

00:18:52--> 00:18:59

oh mankind not just the believers here, allies and addressing mankind we have sent down

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

a laser instruction and a reminder from your Lord and a cure for that which is in the heart. Danny every disease in the heart can be cured by the prime.

00:19:14--> 00:19:22

So one of the most unique aspects of labor to other is that it was the night in which the Quran

00:19:23--> 00:19:37

was revealed and described as we know is a great instruction for mankind and a great mercy from Allah subhanahu wa Tada. The the second unique characteristic of Layla Takada is the second

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

man

00:19:45--> 00:19:47

and what could possibly

00:19:48--> 00:19:49

allow you to know what lately

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

Danny mankind will never be able to grasp the great reality of later toccata and noticing this is a last minute

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

Addison does not say

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

Metallica

00:20:05--> 00:20:06

will allow you to know when Lena

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

Nana,

00:20:09--> 00:20:24

Layla toccata is because the focus is not when. And this is what the focus is what. So the laners will cover becomes something that the believer strives for and yearns for and desires.

00:20:25--> 00:20:57

Not necessarily when, and we'll talk about winning shallow, but the first thing is what what is leadership that is, so this is the second unique quality of leaders is that we will never be able to really fully grasp the great meanings of Layla tokens, as Allah says, and what will convey to you what leave it till it is. And as a result, I think that we should move away from translating labor to cut it is the night of power as the night of power because it doesn't, it doesn't carry the me with anybody.

00:20:58--> 00:21:09

Really. And if we want to explain it to people that may be new Muslims or non Muslims, for example, then we can tell them that is an honorable night, the night of honor and the night of the creek, for example.

00:21:11--> 00:21:22

The third unique quality of labor to the third eye was the third eye. Layla told everybody this is something the kids that are four years old memorize

00:21:25--> 00:21:29

an alpha five. So Laila toccata,

00:21:30--> 00:21:36

is greater than 1000 months, let that sink in for a

00:21:37--> 00:21:43

lot of people come and they say, Yeah, 1000 months, that's 83 years and four months. So if you do

00:21:44--> 00:22:10

a loss, it it's greater than 1000, not equivalent to 1000 a month. And this has to mean, perhaps, perhaps, or it could carry more than one meaning perhaps it means 1000 months is the wave at three years and four months. And it's better than that. But a lot of times in many languages, including Arabic 1000 is used to mean something that is infinite or uncountable.

00:22:12--> 00:22:25

All right, so it could carry that meaning that there is no limit to the virtue of worshiping Allah subhana wa Tada, Allah Allah. So it's definitely at least 1000 months,

00:22:27--> 00:22:41

or definitely at least more than 1000 months. And it could be an infinite Gann, it could be limiting the value that Allah blesses us with. When we think about the worship that is done on that particular night on layer two.

00:22:42--> 00:22:49

And so what does it mean that it's better than 1000 months? Well, the scholars have said meaning that

00:22:51--> 00:22:55

the worship that is done in Laila

00:22:57--> 00:23:08

has more virtue than the worship, that would have been done in 1000 months, that same beat, let's take a step back, let's think about it. Monetary $1 $1, given on labor

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

is worth what

00:23:13--> 00:23:28

is more than $1, that would be given 4000 months, okay, so that's 30,000, because 30 days in a month, average. Okay. So better than giving $30,000 if you get what $1, paid.

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

Less, let's look at it from a different perspective.

00:23:34--> 00:24:12

And this is, this is related to what we talked about earlier. And that is not being losers, not being losers, we don't want to be a loser, we don't want if, if a an employer was to tell his employee, for example, your boss told you this come to work for one day, okay? This next week, or 10 days, make it. And if you come for that one day, what you'll get your regular salary, plus, you'll get 1000 times the salary that you would normally get in that particular day.

00:24:14--> 00:24:16

Not 1000 times 1000 months,

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

the salary that you so basically, you will be set for the rest of your life.

00:24:25--> 00:24:27

But just going in for those 10 days.

00:24:29--> 00:24:30

Meaning what that

00:24:31--> 00:24:50

a person who doesn't take advantage of that opportunity, say there were five people, right? And the boss said, Listen, all you guys I have enough to go around. So anybody that comes for the next 10 days, all right, whatever you doing those 10 days, I'm going to you know, I'm going to multiply your salary and I'm going to do this and that for you. And

00:24:51--> 00:25:00

people are going to find a way to sleep at work, sleep in the car, whatever so that there is no traffic on the way going back and forth, so that they make sure that they don't overspend.

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

Leave, so that they're going to figure out a way to be at work whenever the boss wants them there.

00:25:06--> 00:25:28

All right for that for those 10 days, okay? Let's transfer them, if only four of them showed up in the fifth one day, so avoid the four say about the guy that didn't come to work. Something's wrong with him. Either, either. He doesn't believe the boss, the boss is pulling his leg, he's like, he's really just trying to get us to come in a little extra.

00:25:30--> 00:25:32

So that's one thing. So he, he doesn't believe him.

00:25:34--> 00:25:36

Or he's telling everybody

00:25:37--> 00:25:45

I've inherited, you know, millions from my father. And really, I don't need to come and push myself extra for those 10 days, it's not important to me.

00:25:46--> 00:26:12

One of the two, I mean, you really can't come up with another conclusion unless he died or he's sick or something like that. Please, the people who don't worship along later to say one of two things, that people don't strive in the last 10 days, they say one of two things, either we don't really believe that we're going to get this reward, or I'm okay. I'm all right, I've already been forgiven, somehow, some way. I don't really need those extra deeds.

00:26:14--> 00:26:15

And listen,

00:26:17--> 00:26:19

I'm not going to go into one, right, the second

00:26:21--> 00:26:23

is called laner. Because it's in the night

00:26:24--> 00:26:54

in the summertime, and look at the mercy of Allah. When the days are long, right. And you have to Danny put forward some effort in backing, you may get really thirsty or whatever. The nights are short, which means that you can take advantage of later to cut there is only nine hours in the night right now or something like that nine hours. Multiply that times nine, because it's either not it's an ISO 81 out, you worship the law. You scribe you do everything you can,

00:26:56--> 00:26:59

for 81 hours, and the reward.

00:27:01--> 00:27:11

If you're worse of the law for more than 83 years, me an hour, for a year of reward, you get it? I mean, listen, we need to understand that this is the time.

00:27:12--> 00:27:23

This is the time of the year. If there was no other time, then this is that time to strive Laila from a woman?

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

Lady,

00:27:25--> 00:28:03

read that we've read that for years, and we've heard it for years, but don't we really? Do we really contemplate what that means? And how that should trout that knowledge of latency because it should translate into action. Because that knowledge has to be a firm belief. And that belief needs to translate into action. If it doesn't translate into action today, something critically wrong, there's something wrong either with the belief side, or with the Yani belief that mean a belief in the truthfulness of the Quran. Or there's something wrong with the belief that the reward that is related to

00:28:04--> 00:28:07

the fourth thing is the fourth item

00:28:08--> 00:28:11

in the store, and that is penicillin, Mala.

00:28:14--> 00:28:26

Nero pm and Cooley ama, that is the angels and the rule, the spirit which is jabrill by consensus of scholars, and the Spirit, the sender and by the permission of the Lord,

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

for every matter.

00:28:31--> 00:28:38

And the scholars of Tafseer have said a lot about what this ayah means. Even some of the Tabby ain't mentioned that.

00:28:39--> 00:28:52

There's a narration, there's actually a deep but I'm not aware of his authenticity, and that is that the angels that descendant that night are more than the grain grains of sand in the earth.

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

scholars

00:28:57--> 00:29:01

of the Sierra mentioned Angela brown that the angels descend.

00:29:03--> 00:29:12

Two things here. The first is that when the angels descend from Allah, to Allah, they descend with mercy and they descend with his bounty, they descend with security and peace for the believer.

00:29:14--> 00:29:27

That's one aspect. The other aspect is that Allah Subhana Allah mentioned the angels any specified debris, because the real, his most specific duty was what

00:29:28--> 00:29:45

was to bring the revelation to the NBA. That was the most specific duty of jabril, which means there are no more prophets are messengers after our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam which means that there is no direct need for him to come to Earth.

00:29:46--> 00:30:00

Because there is no more revelation. There is no more revelation. But so the fact that you reveal himself, Danny the greatest of a loss of power without his angels come down is a great indicator

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

ation of the importance of this nice

00:30:03--> 00:30:04

little cut.

00:30:06--> 00:30:14

And just as the angels come down and this night they come in to the helicopter because I needed the circles of knowledge and they surround

00:30:15--> 00:30:33

those circles. And the people that are sitting in those circles are enveloped by loss of hair without his mercy, as well. So, I mean, these are meetings that we need to be conscious of when we think about laylat will present the unique quality of laser cutter is the fifth.

00:30:35--> 00:30:36

And the last eye

00:30:37--> 00:30:42

in photo cutter, which is where a lot of artists SLM when he had

00:30:44--> 00:30:49

that piece, it is until the break of dawn to the emergence of

00:30:52--> 00:30:54

and the scholars have mentioned that there is peace,

00:30:55--> 00:30:56

because

00:30:57--> 00:31:14

the angels have come down, and they bring with them a salon and they bring with them that piece from a loss of habitat. And that the salon care is another meaning which is feeling safe and feeling secure because of loss of hair without it the amount of people that he freed from the fire.

00:31:16--> 00:31:25

And that night of later to Qatar because every night in Ramadan, Allah data has come in and now there are people that he freed from the fire and even more lately to Qatar.

00:31:26--> 00:31:28

So there is a sense of security,

00:31:29--> 00:31:32

from the punishment of a loss of Hannah, who was

00:31:35--> 00:31:41

the sixth virtue related to Lina to Qatar, is that a loss of habitat as specified

00:31:42--> 00:31:48

for this night, a surah. In the Quran that will be read, as long as the Quran is read.

00:31:49--> 00:32:00

And that is preserved. And one last note that is singles out things in the Koran that indicates it's important. The seventh virtue related to later to cover

00:32:01--> 00:32:10

is that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says, that is collected by Bukhari, that whoever, Danny mahkamah laylat al Kadi.

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

Then, on laylatul cutter, I specified LTM here, we'll talk about that in a bit. Whoever stands on Leyland from Qatar, amen. That is that they are doing it out of faith and a loss of talent and what he has prepared for the believers,

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

then they are seeking his reward and doing so and only to get the reward of a loss of data, then they will have all of their previous sins forgiven.

00:32:44--> 00:32:45

The eighth and final thing

00:32:48--> 00:33:28

that we'll mention is the statement of a lesson or data as it relates to the virtue of this night is the statement of a lesson kind of data, where it says in the now the laylax and Mubarak and this is the other reference that is made to later to cut it into bright so let's go in as an LP later to mubaraka we have sent it down in a blessing night. And this is one of the meanings when we move down from Baraka from Baraka, that word Baraka Do we know what it means because a lot of times we translated as blessing but don't really fully comprehend what is Bara can mean what does it mean when something is blessed by the Grotto Okay, so it's a firmly established and what else

00:33:30--> 00:33:36

and that it develops and it grows, it develops any growth

00:33:37--> 00:33:41

we need to understand this when we when we talk about bucket What does it mean?

00:33:42--> 00:33:45

Like the promise a lot he was selling, who said that?

00:33:46--> 00:33:48

The Sahara in

00:33:49--> 00:33:55

the in the Baraka because there is Baraka in the circle. But what does that mean?

00:33:57--> 00:34:00

Okay, what does that mean? That it's blessed? It means that

00:34:02--> 00:34:10

it is more than actually what it is. A person may only have a very small something to hold some water, some baits, maybe some cereal,

00:34:11--> 00:34:38

and they're able to make it 1516 hours. Because it's black, it has Baraka it's actually it's established that what you have eaten is what you have eaten, but it actually grows, but a lot of data makes it great for you. Okay. Now on other times, your phone may not be mobile. So you might eat at seven o'clock in the morning and then at 10 o'clock 1030 you can't wait for your break from work so you can get something to eat.

00:34:39--> 00:34:41

by lunchtime, you're starving.

00:34:43--> 00:34:48

So panela you eat in the morning you're okay. I mean it gets you through the day. So

00:34:50--> 00:34:52

let's now that it says that now

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

the Leyland

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

we have sent it down in a blessed night. The army is

00:35:00--> 00:35:15

thing of this night. Now there may be others that we don't know about even the obvious blessing is that whatever is done in it, by way of worship of Allah subhanaw taala, is established, and it grows, it's multiplied 1000 times

00:35:17--> 00:35:27

as if you've done it for 1000 a month and not 1000 times, that's more, as if you have done it for about m first allows for data for every Hatton that a person does.

00:35:29--> 00:35:32

It's already multiplied 10 to 700 times.

00:35:34--> 00:35:41

And then that in layman's is multiplied, it's as if you have done that thing for 1000 months.

00:35:43--> 00:35:46

So this is why it's called laylat and mubaraka.

00:35:49--> 00:36:00

emaline Hakeem, as the law says, or that night, every precise math is made distinct, meaning that I lost data now

00:36:01--> 00:36:05

that the decree of a loss of data is transferred

00:36:06--> 00:36:12

to the agents so that they are aware of their duties for the following year.

00:36:14--> 00:36:42

This is not something that we should look at that kind of spring. No, every company, for example, has a five year plan a 10 year plan. And then they have milestones is what needs to be done. The first year, there's what needs to be done the second year, and then even back from that. This is what needs to be done the first month. And so a lot of that has already decreed everything that's going to happen. He wrote it down, he knows what's going to happen. And he wrote that down. And then that is revealed to the angels on this night that is laylat alpha.

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

So

00:36:46--> 00:36:58

these are some of the virtues that we are aware of as it relates to later toccata. So now the big question that everybody says is, well when one is late, but the reality is, is that

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

no one knows exactly. When later to

00:37:06--> 00:37:22

talk about we can narrow it down is definitely not in suffer or in Sabha. Okay, so we can narrow it down when it is laser focused. But there's a great wisdom behind not knowing exactly when laser itself

00:37:24--> 00:37:29

is a great wisdom behind because if we all know about these virtues of labor,

00:37:30--> 00:37:32

and we know exactly what labor to

00:37:34--> 00:37:45

see, we already have a problem. And, you know, they call them Juma Muslims, like Sunday Christians, the Christians, they go to the church on Sunday, the rest of the week.

00:37:47--> 00:38:01

They don't know anything about a law. They don't know anything about church, they don't know anything about anything. So this has transferred over unfortunately, Danny this disease has transferred to the Muslims. So we have the Juma Muslim

00:38:04--> 00:38:04

I'm okay.

00:38:10--> 00:38:16

From one job to the next as a as an explanation for the sins that were coming in in between

00:38:19--> 00:38:27

AD AD which is grossly misunderstood by the people who use it in that manner and that they need the province of like some said

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

ramadan

00:38:33--> 00:38:40

ramadan to the next Ramadan is an expiation for all of the things that were committed in between them

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

so we have the also the disease of the Ramadan was

00:38:46--> 00:38:49

to only know the last Peridot and Ramadan

00:38:52--> 00:38:54

may even faster Ramadan and not pray.

00:38:57--> 00:39:05

Whoever fat Ramadan doesn't pray that all they are is hungry, thirsty, there's no fast anyone. There's no fast but the one who's not praying.

00:39:07--> 00:39:09

Then they forget the last part of the Heidi,

00:39:11--> 00:39:28

said Mitch, Tony but we'll come back so long as the major sins are avoided. So Jamaica, Jamaica is a expiation for the sins committed in between and Ramadan, Ramadan expiation for the sins are committed in between as long as one avoids the major sin

00:39:30--> 00:39:33

is the greatest sin the making mockery of the religion of Allah.

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

This is this is mockery of the D.

00:39:40--> 00:39:42

Let's just say that not at all understand.

00:39:43--> 00:39:46

Is there a bigger sin than leaving off Salah.

00:39:47--> 00:39:56

So the majority of early scholars from the campaigns in the Tabby team is considered competent in and of itself. Not just that it's comfortable that the one that does it is

00:39:57--> 00:39:58

the one that leaves off the salon.

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

So every Juma after that that person doesn't mind becoming a Catherine then the next July they become

00:40:07--> 00:40:08

playing with the deen of Allah.

00:40:10--> 00:40:11

Now just imagine

00:40:12--> 00:40:21

we have Juma Muslims and Ramadan Muslims. Just imagine if we know exactly when Lena toccata was, we would have later to cover Muslims.

00:40:24--> 00:40:25

So there's a great wisdom

00:40:27--> 00:41:09

in hiding, and not knowing exactly when Lina toccata is the true believer. For the true believers, the ones who really want the means for them to push themselves for the entire tonight for the entire because all of the 10 Knights have blessed all of them, and a lot of data. In other situations, he has favored the last third of something like the night, the last third of the night, his favorite over the rest of the night. And the last third of Ramadan is favored over the other times of Ramadan those last night is not just because of latency. So all of these nights are nice that a true believer is going to strive for the fact that you know that one of them is going to be late for

00:41:09--> 00:41:16

customization strive that much heart. And all right. So this is from the hikma how to add pipe

00:41:20--> 00:41:29

narrates as it comes in Bukhari and Muslim that the province of the law it was set to help later some other Alaska, Alaska

00:41:31--> 00:41:37

seek out labor to cover in the last 10 nights of Ramadan.

00:41:38--> 00:41:47

And there's another narration as a Muslim, the authority of Ivanova or the alongside and Houma, who said to the province a lot he was upset at me to happen I shouldn't

00:41:49--> 00:41:53

it out or seek them out or seek it out, excuse me seek it out

00:41:54--> 00:41:56

in the last 10

00:41:57--> 00:41:58

for in

00:41:59--> 00:42:00

our agenda

00:42:04--> 00:42:17

for a point of view becomes weak or doesn't have the ability, then don't let him be overcome. And the last step. Don't don't let anything stop him from taking advantage of the last seven.

00:42:18--> 00:42:39

So when we benefit from this, number one we benefit from the Quran itself, the latest academies in Ramadan in Ramadan, without a doubt that's from the plot. So just as a side point, and half of them in hedger by Milan, he mentioned that the scholars have 46 opinions about when they left.

00:42:40--> 00:42:41

MIT is only 10 days.

00:42:43--> 00:42:53

Six opinions about when leaving some companies. Some of them are obviously incorrect because they go directly against the tech Daddy, some of them for example, mentioned that it

00:42:56--> 00:43:05

outside of Ramadan, so we can definitely from the Quran, we can narrow it down to Ramadan. And then from the heat of the province of light, it was something we can narrow it down to the last 10.

00:43:06--> 00:43:06

So

00:43:09--> 00:43:12

seeking that we benefit from these two hobbies combined. And it

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

is that seeking out later to costcutter and striving to do righteous deeds and labors of Goddess or to be done for the entire thing. But it's more likely to fall in the last seven. That's what we benefit from, from these two. How do we combine them? So they guide them we subscribe, but most likely, it's the last thing. And some of the scholars have mentioned

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

that you have to strive the entire 10 because any of the nights because a lot of people think well,

00:43:51--> 00:44:08

maybe it's just the ad night. You probably heard that right? So the 21st, the 23rd, the 25th 27th and the 29th. And some of them have even come with some numerology and said see later, some cover Five Eyes.

00:44:10--> 00:44:38

So it can be five. And then a lot of there's no evidence for this, but I've heard it and quite a few circles amongst people that attribute themselves to knowledge. So we should be aware of these type of things. So it can be any of the 10 and this is the reason why, because the purpose of the lohani was Selim also said an authentic hadith narrated by Ivan and Bess. I visited this because this is going to help us to understand why it can even be on the even night.

00:44:39--> 00:44:52

The promise of light it was I'm saying not just this evidence, but this is one of the Yani proofs, he said to me to have been Ashville Alas, in Ramadan, seek it out in the last 10 nights of Ramadan.

00:44:54--> 00:44:55

Lita, see I think

00:44:57--> 00:44:58

the homies

00:45:03--> 00:45:06

How's it sound I'm saying when Nine Nights are remaining,

00:45:07--> 00:45:14

when seven nights are remaining, when five nights are remaining when three nights are remaining, this is the narration insoluble part

00:45:21--> 00:45:22

a polygon is complete

00:45:24--> 00:45:39

meaning that is 30 days because it a month may be complete or incomplete. They call it 10 times out marks. Okay, complete and incomplete. So if Ramadan is 30 days, correct, Nine Nights remaining puts us on what night

00:45:44--> 00:45:49

22nd nights, nine days if it was 30 days,

00:45:50--> 00:45:54

30 days, nine days means the 21st day which is today.

00:45:55--> 00:45:56

But the night is

00:45:57--> 00:46:01

because the night starts Monday, the 22nd may

00:46:02--> 00:46:09

22. And you can do it on your fingers at home or whatever, you don't have to worry about it. I've done it already on my fingers so that you wouldn't have to

00:46:12--> 00:46:22

do that with Nine Nights remaining is the 22nd nights. seven nights would be the 24th nights seven nights remaining five nights The 26th is

00:46:23--> 00:46:24

what if the

00:46:25--> 00:47:12

month is incomplete meaning is 29 days, Nine Nights remaining is the 21st night. seven nights remaining is the 23rd night like this. So we don't know how many nights are remaining. And therefore, therefore, all of the 10 are possibility that it could be laylat. So don't fool yourself. But don't be fooled. And think that you can take it easy on the 22nd the 24th night the 26th night I'll take it a little easy. And then I'll go for it. No, all of the 10 nights, push yourself. Push yourself to do every because honestly the fatigue that you feel it goes away even the next day two days later, you don't even feel okay. You wear yourself out and then it's over. But the virtue of

00:47:12--> 00:47:17

worshipping Allah Subhana Allah and that night remain in the law up to

00:47:18--> 00:47:27

Alaska data does not cause the that the the deeds are the reward of those who do good the most you need to go to wait.

00:47:29--> 00:47:55

So whatever you're doing that night, even if you burn yourself out the last 10 even after the last 10 you need to take a couple days to just, you know, get your footing back, you know, it's okay. It's okay because if you do if you worship Allah Subhana Allah for the entire thing, and you feel like you gave it your all, then inshallah Tada, you have definitely Danny sought out Laila till covered and worship the last time without it there. And

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

I'm going to skip a lot of the difference of opinion, because as you can see, we can narrow it down like this.

00:48:05--> 00:48:13

It is definitely Laila toccata is definitely in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, it is most likely

00:48:14--> 00:48:18

on the night, and it could be on the evening.

00:48:19--> 00:49:00

That's the conclusion. If that summary is clear, then there is no point of going into a whole lot of detail. Because yes, there are some of the campaigns like waving cap who said it was on the 27th. There are others that say no, it's not the 21st. And there are a lot of different a lot of different things. But the correct opinion is so long, that it's not the same every year, it could be the same on certain years. It could be the 25th this year, the 25th next year, and then after that the 27th but that it moves throughout the last 10 that it moves throughout the last 10 Some people ask what are the thoughts? How can I know when it's later to come? But the reality is, is that

00:49:03--> 00:49:05

it's not necessary to know

00:49:07--> 00:49:15

when later because honestly, the clear sign that is mentioned is that the sun the next day that the sun comes up

00:49:16--> 00:49:30

and is ba ba it's white, and it doesn't have any rays, the rays are not as pronounced and profound as they would be on it. So that when do you know that you know that during labor?

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

day you're not even gonna know that any way until it's too late. So the whole point is the worship of loss of talent that it doesn't matter. Yes. There are many things that have been mentioned where the Sahaba themselves they saw it in a dream and they went to the province of light it was son of me as it comes collected by party Muslim. He said that I see that your dreams have agreed. Your dreams have agreed 90 this year particular year that they all saw during the last seven

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

nights of Ramadan.

00:50:02--> 00:50:23

So it doesn't there isn't really anything that we can say specifically that yes, this is how you know is later to cut that there are other things I mentioned that it is a night that is not extremely cold and not extremely hot. But that may be in some places and not in other places. And even the sun coming up that was mentioned how the sun comes up without the rain.

00:50:24--> 00:50:45

Some of them like color Yeah, and his explanation of a Muslim. He said that this is possible that this was specific to that one particular time of labor. And it's possible that it could be because of the amount of angels that have descended that the rays are locked from the sun or that the rays are not as pronounced and Allah knows best
