Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
So, to conclude the shallow data, we want to go over some of the common mistakes that people make.
And also, what is it that we should do or later to or seeking out later to cut it from the from the most common mistake
or from the most common mistakes is being heedless. Another word negligent not recognizing the virtue of this night and not really seeking it out. If you happen to pray that you pray and if you don't, then it's okay.
And this type of attitude, this type of approach. So like we mentioned before, is like basically, you a person is telling a lot that really I'm, I'm I'm fine. I don't need your mercy. Danny when that attitude is, is taken towards later some other and I recognize, I recognize that not everyone has the
the blessing and the favor of a loss of power that is to be in Mecca or Medina.
Not everyone has that opportunity. That in here when the 900 is made easy for us to seek out. Other people are making a tea cast, the Muslims are standing up three hours in prayer.
So it's made easy, if you will, to worship Allah. But some of you may not be here for the entire thing you may have to go back to your country, your country may not be the land of the Muslims. People may not recognize or appreciate Layla tokens, but you have to recognize it and appreciate it. So even if you have to go to work, the next morning, take a portion of the night and dedicate it to the worship of Allah Subhana Who was that? If there were any 10 days out of the year, that a person should take his vacation if they have they have a chance to choose for your anniversary take your wife to some Island.
No, it is to establish something that you can have when you meet Allah subhana wa tada
it is, this is the time the 10 night there are no other 10 nights like them in the year.
So if you have the ability, you're your own boss, then change your work schedule in those 10 days. Go to work a little later so that you can get some sleep after budget. For example, because it is the night that is important here. It is the night when it becomes late to cut it later to cut it is not going to be in the daytime
is called later to cuddle. And the night is short. It's only nine hours in some places much shorter than that. And Sweden and other countries is only three hours, four hours.
So the night is short. Dedicate that time to the worship of Allah subhanaw taala and adjust your schedule the same way that you would adjust your schedule but anything else that is important to
anything else that's important to you adjust your schedule. If you're not your own boss, you try to figure out a way to get off work early that day. Matt come in late I have a doctor's appointment. Is there anything that a person for doctor's appointment, people go to work late and they leave work early
for seeking out from Qatar, we become
what Allah Allah has prepared for the one who worships Him in that night. So the same way that we look at other times as being special. Whether that is permissible or impermissible is beside the point.
The same way that we dedicate other days of the year.
What about these things, we have to have a different routine. We have to even if your routine is set for you, meaning you might be a doctor on call you might be anything.
You have to change your routine. Change when you sleep, change something about your schedule, so that you take advantage of this night. Not doing so is one of the greatest mistakes that a Muslim can make.
The second thing is that many people have invented
specific practices related to cut
their own type of detail
The own manner of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. Making update if you say this 70 times,
then you will be removed 1000 years from now find all types of things that people have invented, Do not insult the Prophet so
don't make up your own way to worship Allah.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent to teach us how to worship Allah.
This is what he was sent.
He was sent with revelation from the one who created so that we know how to worship Allah.
He was the one is he conveyed the message of a loss
of personal comms, now, they make up their own way to worship Allah, things that the Prophet was telling him did not instruct us with the need to say that the prophets I saw them didn't teach us enough.
I'm Oh connection with the llama way of figuring out how to worship Him. Or that Allah wanted us to worship Him in a certain way and the prophets like Selim did not convey that.
And this is why the prophet like some said
that every innovation is bulahdelah
stray, it is a heresy, because it's insulting to the prophesy Sunnah. And a lot of people think they're not just doing something good. I'm encouraging people to do things that are good. They make up virtues about soldiers in the bride, whoever reads this sort of
thing, he will have this. And they think that I'm getting the people to read the grime.
That's an insult. To the promise of the law, it was something we should be careful about that we should be careful not to invent anything. And there's been of a loss of time without it that the problem is like something did not convey to us.
The third mistake that is done in these last 10. In general, when seeking later to cut it is over socialized. It's not a time for parties, it's not a time for playing, it's not a time for talking, it's not a time for Facebook, Twitter, or any of these other things that that they have invented to distract them.
And not that it's an invention. Not that there's a conspiracy to distract the Muslims from the worst of the velocity of data, but it is the reality it is what has happened. It is what has happened. And we should never underestimate the mecca of shape on on his plots and his plans. So, I mean, the reality is, is that there is no harm in a minimal amount of socializing, obviously, you have to, you have to work there has to be some degree of socializing. If you have a family, there's a degree of socializing, you should be extra diligent and fulfilling your parents needs. And these nights because that is one of the greatest deeds of any righteousness that a person can do. All right, but
it's not the time for socializing. If you invite people for example for dining for them to break faster Johnson after, after you breakfast I said this first go to the MST
if you're making a T cap, at cap is not a time for visiting.
At cap is a time for you to be in seclusion. For you to be alone, for you to enjoy the companionship of men.
For you to prepare for a day when you will be alone. This is where it happens.
You die alone, you're buried alone, you are resurrected alone, you stand in front of allies with gel alone.
And you need to prepare for that. You need some solitary confinement
where you restrict yourself to a certain place in the masjid. Not to be visited by
others in domestic, but you restrict yourself to that. And you dedicate yourself to the worship of Allah subhana wa tada and you feel the feeling of being alone. And you recognize that you will be alone. That day is inevitable.
And the preparation for that day starts now. And even for those who cannot make it, he can't because of whatever previous schedules they had, or whatever they may have to do.
Most people don't have to work on the weekend. So make a T cap on the weekend.
Go if you can navigate you can take long periods of time where you are in seclusion in domestic by yourself. If you can stay in domestic front door until after pm for example. If that's possible, do so do something where you are going to disconnect if you will from
everyone else and have a time with solely for Allah Subhana who was added. So this is one of the other mistakes that is common in the last 10 is that there's over socialized in our party and these type of things like that.
to wrap it up and sell on time. But these are very important points and I don't know if we'll have the opportunity to address them again.
The fourth thing is
engaging in anything that is hard.
There is a very short period of time later to cut for alternate, it is very, very possible and easy for the one that makes it easy for to leave off all ha, you should never have recorded on your deeds that there was something that you did that was haram
because there's no time, there's no time to do all of the things that we shouldn't be doing. Not to mention to include something that we should not be doing.
So if you have the fiction of of you are testing, with listening to music, or something like that, let's say this is not the time to
Feel like you just have to listen to something listen to the crime.
This is not the time to watch TV.
At all. Period.
Not the time for that you cannot use
just the news is just a new pipe. You can you can catch up on the news. in the morning. If you have to. Maybe your job depends on it. You can catch up one after
but you can never catch up or Layla Takata becomes an adult is gone.
And some people say it's just the news. And then the news anchor is someone who causes and fitness. Maybe she's young and she's beautiful. And he's watching it with the excuse that it's just the news.
And Amazon has told us the lower gates and is that the needs to other things will slow down.
The last thing that I mentioned salata as it relates to mistakes, and then we got to talk about what we should do. Now we know we shouldn't do, let's look at what we should do. The last thing that we should not do, or that is common place another is something that's terrible. But we should recognize the mistakes some people after praying with him.
They said stuff for the last over the last summer like they do for a lot.
But the promise of life is solemn after which
he will say so canon medical produce. So canon medical produce. So canon medical produce Bill Miller, it was
a notice of Malacca, and like in Sorocaba, cinisello mala, if it's worth
Anyway, I find those are some of the things that we should avoid as for
the things that we should do,
then the first thing is not something specific to
laser cutter, but it is something that we should be extra
cognizant of these lasts and that is to take a step back
and evaluate our lives. Danny, most of the time were so busy and the rest of the year were running
up and down to and fro
stuck in traffic going to work having to do this. We're so busy even children, even children,
young children eight years Okay, you do this on busy right now.
Because of the way that things have been
that people find themselves always busy.
I'm busy, I'm busy.
The first thing that you need to do is just take a step back, take a breather, take a timeout, and reevaluate, reevaluate what things are really important to you.
And what things can take a
journey go to the side at least for a little while.
So reprioritize and refocus.
Dealing with these last 10 nights of Ramadan and especially seeking God later. So what I mentioned inshallah, to Allah for those who are seeking Elena to come to this to be extra diligent, and protecting and preserving the Salawat Yani the prayers in Jamaica, doing your best to pray in Jamaica. And if you live close to a message that you don't have an excuse. And if you make a guess that you really don't have an excuse, but some people make it to get
late for Salah
which is a contradiction because
of the fact that they're not taking advantage of the time properly. And so they sleep all the way up until they're dead. If you do that in any of these massage, measure, never weigh and measure. If you are if you wake up at the event, you can forget praying a lot with the gym, because the bathrooms are going to be crowded and these type of things but the point is wherever you may be
Be on the face of the earth.
In general, there are massage.
So do your best to pray in domestic. And if you're seeking out labor to cut out in these less than a cent, especially
especially Russia, because the person who prays a shot into man, it is as if he is praised the half of the night, and the person who prays budget in Japan and it is as if he has completed the entire night.
Multiply that 4000 months. And this is the virtue of a loss of power data. And this is from his balance, he gives it to whom He wills, so be extra diligent and protecting the Salah, because there is nothing that you can get closer to lost power without it than that which he has made obligatory upon you. So don't Danny don't strive to strive to break the hammer domestic one o'clock in the morning, two o'clock in the morning, but you must select Alicia a domestic, this is contradictory and this is not understanding of how to worship Allah Subhana who was added. The second thing is pm itself Gani praying during the night because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that he meant
karma, Laila token and whoever stay and later toccata. So the most specific event that can be done or later to cover is the salon itself.
The third thing that I'm going to recommend is that you try to feed the factory person every night.
And these last 10 hopefully, you'll do that it'll be the Yeah, you will get that reward on later to cut that a shallow tada because the one who feeds the fact the person has the reward of the one who was fast without anything being diminished from the reward of the fasting person. So just imagine that being multiplied by 1000 months go by.
And that is actually at night because once the person breaks the back is after mother. So that's at night, and tried to give charity each night, either to your local Masjid, for example, or to for people or wherever you feel that your charity is most
of us most correctly.
So these are some of the things that can be done later. So covered along with
me reading the crime making as much as possible.
making this the path and as it relates to do as
I said, I'll be alone
went to the province of the law, it was some of them. And she said do you see it by witnesses later to cousin or witness later to
notice that she said she said What should I say? What should I say? Elena? So the prophets a lot he was sent him said coup de Aloma in nikka Abu boon to hibou allafrica 5151 and this has been collected by
imagine em Acme is declared authentic was rated as authentic by its a million and Hackman, other scholars have been upgraded to be authentic as well.
This has been this Hadid has a lot of benefits.
And I think that
we should actually stop that for a second. And just look at the meanings of this heavy allama In the
end, because this is what we should be saying the most when it comes to.
Because we also see that I shall be locked out and didn't ask them what should I do in it? What should I do? She said What should I say man up Hulu shows that that the campaign's understood that this was a time to make a lot of black people we understand from this heading that they understood that this was a time to get closer to a loss of health data by means of making glad to him and then that best is to do at the promise of a line it was a long time
because if there had been a better he would have taught her a better deal. But what is the meaning of this Lao llama
he has a lot of significance as it relates to Layla
and was and will mention it because this is going to be the last thing that we talk about as it relates to the things that we should be doing related to fun. So let's just go back over quickly to make sure that we protect this a lot of our obligatory slide especially
in the in domestic.
Also salon in general.
The third thing is reading the Quran as much as possible.
The fourth thing is making God is the father and Vicar of Allah azza wa jal
The next thing is charity, to whatever causes that you believe are worthy. And also trying to feed a fascinating person, Gandhi in those last 10 nights, so those are the things that that we already mentioned as it relates to do the best last
five for me, and
the reason why it is so significant
he is, and he's mentioned this in many items,
and he's gonna love ya
won't fill in for him. So there's a difference between
or forget forgiveness in a lab,
which we're going to translate as part in.
And due to the limit of the time, because this guy actually deserves his own day deserves his own hour by itself. But due to time limitations out, summarize it as best as possible.
When someone gives something, okay, they cover it up.
So it's not going to be exposed. So when you ask Allah
to forgive you of your sins, that is what you're asking, you're asking him to not expose those sins to cover it up, to cover up those sins.
As some of the scholars say that if you mentioned Johnny Depp by itself, then it encompasses the last one of you mentioned, I buy sofa in conferences. But anyway, the point here is that allow for what is the last two party to party in is from a macro meaning is erased, as if it never existed in the first place.
So when you ask a law, Aloma in the Gospel, you are the one who party.
You love party?
And what is the evidence in the data describe that people have tough what he said, Well tell the mean and the Filipina and those who repressed their anger, and also part of the young people may have done demonic part of that, like it didn't even happen. And they continue with life as if it didn't even happen.
Allah loves that quality
in the believer, and that is one of his qualities that He has for himself in a manner that is befitting His Majesty in a manner that we could never understand how much the last part is in service
So Pardon me.
And this has a number of significant aspects to it. One of the most important
is that a person may because of the striving that they are doing in Ramadan in general, the fact that they have fasted those first 20 days and stood and thought, oh, we're and they have given sadaqa and they have a person may become deceived by his own being, and be afflicted with self admiration. They believe that he has reached the level
of the angels in via
because of how pure he is in this month
and how much forgiveness he has. Now he really feels like he's on another level now.
Don't be confused.
And don't be deluded by sci fi
into believing that you have attained some level with the loss of Hell with that.
And keep saying yes.
said was he already guaranteed that she was from the people of paradise?
But he told her to say Allah.
Allah, indeed you are the one pardons you love pardoning, so pardon me, overlooked totally erased my sins, and my evil deeds so that a person never thinks that they've made it to that level.
the best of this room after the prophets of light. It was Solomon the best man after the Prophet
that to the POTUS a lot he was telling me he asked him
What do I make in the salon?
Teach me how to make in the salon. So the bottom line it was something taught him to do I
I have severely oppressed myself.
This is the song for him to me
in need to know see, don't men katiba severely oppressed myself.
And there is no one that forgives them except for you.
So forgive me a forgiveness that comes from you and an adversarial because you are before.
So if this is
thought to be
and then the dad that he taught
who was from amongst the best of women, and some say that she was the best of the one.
And some say that it was Khadija Some say party. But the point is, it should not
agree that these three women were the best of that. So have you, Khadija,
of the best of women
ever to walk Planet Earth,
then how much more should we strive and making this
I think I
said that this too I should be made, especially Institute.
So when those logs in to come along and
repeat it and think about it and cry,
cry because you know
that you have shortcomings. And you know that you need a lot of parts. And you know that it doesn't party knew that there is no party. And that you'll have to face the loss of parents either for whoever Ramadan comes to when is not forgiven them a long distance. And this is what jabril says. So we need to try our best to seek a loss of hand without his forgiveness in this month, and not be deceived by the good deeds that we do. Because the prophets of the law it was sort of miscellaneous
agenda to be honest, none of you will enter agenda.
What does that mean? by his deep meaning, meaning that your deeds do not Danny what we say is, for example, they say how much is this an Arabic become the reality, it is to reality Yanni. In exchange for this, I will give you this none of you will get gender in exchange for his deep
because Jenna's too valuable and good deeds, me nothing
the deeds that we do, the deeds that we do, don't even allow us to deserve any of these favorites that Allah has given us. The ability to breathe,
to just go
without having a mess on our faces, go visit people in the hospital and see see how difficult it is for them to bring that out as giving you to be able to breathe, to be able to hear to be able to see
these these that we do don't even add up
to the blessing that we already have, not to mention gender.
So there is no fair exchange here.
So they asked the prophesies of them.
And not even you not even you want to gender solely because of his being and everything that we do
from Moodle, from Salah from seeking out later to all of that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is rewarded for it, because the dad was
the one who guides to good is like the one who has done and there is no good that anyone is guided to except that the prophecy some guided them to them, either by way of them reading directly or by someone who knew the sun of the sun and was able to guide them to them. So every good deed that a Muslim does, is rewarded for even him even he will not enter Jannah solely because of his good deeds.
accept that Allah subhana wa tada or unless a loss of data envelops me in his mercy.
And so the person enters dinner because allies will have mercy on them.
And this is what we need to understand from this heavy the llama in the
back for me
Allah, you are alive. You love for people to party, so party, because that's the way we enter into it and we enter by the mercy of Allah. And there is no contradiction between that and the statement of Allah.
And agenda by because of what you used to do, because the beads are a call
to gain or loss of Hannah without his mercy. And through that mercy, we enter into Elgin and we asked the loss of Hannah who data for gender. We asked Allah subhana wa tada to make us from the people have done that to save us from the hellfire.
And we ask Allah to make us from amongst the people who stand on later to Qatar, amen. And watch the server. Hello, animals. Hello, central robotic and enemy Adam Hammond. If there are any questions, we'll take them now for the next five minutes. And then I'll sit on the side and answer any other questions because he needs to stop taping environments?
The question is, what what what's better to pray to HUD in my home, or to pray in here and invest in another week. And the answer to that is that the virtue and this is a chi de or a, a principle of worship, that we should all understand. The virtue that is related to the event itself, takes virgin takes precedence over the virtue that is related to the place of events. So a person needs to look at where they find more for sure. And there's a lot if you find that the salaat that you make in your home and touch it, for example, a person may be from the people of the crime, meaning that they always recite the Quran, they teach other people to karate, they learned the Quran when they were
young, they have them, for example, and for them, and they pray 200 on a regular basis.
And for them, when they pray 200 in their home, it is going to be they're going to have more for sure, they're going to feel more useless they want to then it is better for that person to pray in his home. It's better for him to pray 200 in his home, but many people don't have that.
And if they don't, then I want to pray as much, for example, as they would pray here, and unless it is number one, number one, so they're going to only pray with a small portion of the bride. They're not going to pray as long.
So they're not going to make to do this long and record as long. Likewise, the virtue of praying and Jamaat for these types of things with the kudos of the man, but the man making dua and everybody saying me has a virtue in and of itself. And then there's the virtue of praying in the province, which the salaat here's like 1000 slots in any other places. But that being said, the person has to look at where his heart is, and what where he feels more comfortable. In his he bet.
Yes, but you have to speak up soon.
What is the difference?
The question is what is the difference between the husband and family? The answer to that question is that anything that is praised after Salatin that is considered to be from pmla is given different names in Ramadan. tarawih, it was specific to Ramadan because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam instructed us to pray over the Prophet himself is a lot to be said and we pray to two rakaats and two rakaats 94. And then he would rest as I said, all the loads that I mentioned, and because of that rest, and then starting back up, the prayer itself was called Tada, we because there is a resting period and then the prayer that was done directly after Salatin in domestics of the Muslims
from the time of the Sahaba were the alone time. Up until today that prayer was called tada we, during the time of the Tabby, they started to come back at night and that practice was known as Tapi. And there's a difference of opinion amongst the scholars as to whether that practice is desirable or not. But the point is, is that is done here and many of the majority of the fuqaha considered that to be something that is good. And so they will come back, that coming back was known as pm late and that's why they call it pm. La tahajjud. is something that is done the name is specifically given to the select that is done after someone has already slept. So if someone has
slept and then they wake up and they pray at night, then that is known as the hygiene. If they did not go to sleep, then it is incorrect to call it 200. But anything it's all the same prayer it is the night prayer and what the promise of the law it was something was asked about how to pray at night. He says a lot to Lady meant not that
The nightmare is two by two so no matter when a person prays it that's how they should pray and don't get any the names don't really matter.
Subhana Allah hendrikus Hello Lola into some political words
