Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or Shadowrun ohmori Maha Dasa Taha wakulla Masha sateen VEDA, Baku, la dee da da da da wakulla Bala Latina, my brothers and my sisters in Islam.

00:01:21--> 00:01:22

My brothers and my sisters in Islam,

00:01:24--> 00:01:37

in this month of Ramadan, in this month of worship, in this month of Quran, and siyam and sola, and Zakat, and erotica.

00:01:38--> 00:02:28

In this month of rabada. The Muslim men have a real test from Allah subhana wa Tada. And that test is not the first thing. That test is not the other way. That test is not the success of the contest. That test is not the ethic of it is the constancy of these things. That is the real test. The regularity of the actual Rebbe, that is the real test. The test is not that you have prayed that away. The test is whether you have prayed thoroughly every day. That test is not whether you have perfected CRM One day, the test is whether you perfected CRM every single day, that test is not whether your heart connects with Allah subhanho wa Taala and you make decode of Allah subhanho wa

00:02:28--> 00:03:15

Taala on that night of Laila to Qatar. Rather, the test is whether you are doing it every single day of Ramadan, and thereafter, in the months after Ramadan, the greatest test of Ramadan equity, my brothers and my sister Islam, the greatest test of Ramadan is not the different X ray better it is the constancy of the X ray data. And is there anyone amongst us except that we fail in this test? In this test of constancy? How many of us can say we weren't, we are as firm on our therapy. As we were on the first day of Ramadan, how many of us can say we are truly tasting the sweetness of our fasting today, just like we tasted the sweetness of a fasting the very first day we started, how

00:03:15--> 00:04:01

many of us are also continuing on our reading of the Quran, just like we started the first day that we are still continuing on today, the 17th perhaps, supposed to be on the 17th just how many of us are giving charity regularly just like we started on the very first day, we'll call Illumina Ada chapeau and how few of my slaves are thankful how few of the slaves Allah subhana wa tada thankful the scholars Islam, they say, praising Allah subhanho wa Taala happens by the mouth by saying Alhamdulillah you're praised Allah, but sugar, praising Allah and thanking him thanking Allah does not happen simply by saying Alhamdulillah it happens with your actions and your deeds. you prove it

00:04:01--> 00:04:48

with your constancy and with your steadfastness. Yes, let's see how many of us are truly thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala by being constant in our ibadah equity by the middle of Ramadan. There is no one amongst us that except that we feel tired. When it comes to the morning or Tara we or any of the other extra data we have drained out. We feel like where is that sweetness that I used to get? I don't get it anymore. And the only way you try and remind yourself that you should keep it up is there's only 15 days to go. Only a few more days to go before Ramadan is finished. And so you have to remind yourself of how little less you have to do how little there is to do before Ramadan

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

finishes and with that you try and constant and be constant. However my brothers and sisters in Islam, I have something better for you. I have something better for you.

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

Whenever you feel like you're going down, you know x ray data, whenever you feel like it's getting too much, and I'm not feeling the sweetness anymore, whenever you feel like I'm weakening in my app sorry that and I cannot keep it up. I can't keep the Sol Sol. I cannot keep the steadfastness I'm losing in my grip upon my X ray Bada, then I urge you to read the sutra that was revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam to keep him constant and firm despite all the difficulties scheffel Islam even taymiyah Allah, He says in his fatawa to be constant upon your X ray data is even more difficult is even more difficult than staying away from the haraam. Can you believe

00:05:48--> 00:06:07

what the scholars say that to be constant upon you actually bother doing it regularly is even more difficult than staying away from a beautiful woman is even more difficult than doing all the other harm and staying away from that harder because truly equity Nothing is more difficult than being constant on X ray bada.

00:06:08--> 00:06:50

Even Kathy Rahim Allah He says, patience is of three different levels. He says, SFC patience and sobor is upon salata. maratea, three different levels, the lowest of patience, the person who has the lowest of patience is the one who has patience when the mercy of Allah comes, when a messiah strikes you, like your parents have passed away, your children pass away, or someone has, unfortunately, beloved person who has an accident, or you lose your job, and to be patient upon that time, it is the lowest of patience. Then he says the middle level of patience, is to stay away from those things which Allah has made her up

00:06:52--> 00:07:35

is to stay away from the Muharram of Allah subhana wa COVID. That's the middle level of patience. And the highest level of patience, he says, is to be constant Upon doing that, which Allah subhanho wa Taala has made obligatory upon you, because that is the most difficult thing to do those things, which though they are so little and so small, but it is to be done constantly. That is the difficult thing equity, my brothers and my sisters in Islam. Ask yourselves, how many of you those who are wives, my brothers in Islam, how many of you is it difficult upon you to kiss your wife every day to be kind and merciful to her to wash the dishes and vacuum the floor every day? You would rather not

00:07:35--> 00:08:24

do that but take her away for a holiday once in a while. Because constancy in doing something is more difficult than doing something big once in a while. But yeah, watty Ali radi Allahu taala was said and authentic, authentic narration from him which is more for he said, Allah subhanho wa Taala loves the small deeds that are done regularly more than the big deeds that are done once in a while. You might do Hajj once in five years, that is not as beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala as that constant act of charity that you can do every single day, it was only two records that belong to the Allahu taala who used to pray after every will do to record only Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:08:24--> 00:09:11

sallam said to him authentic ID in Sahih Muslim Yeah, Bella, I have seen your footsteps before me and Jeremiah de la how nothing rasulillah except I do two records after every single widow that's it. constancy in extra data is more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala is more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala than anything else. Yes with the my brothers and sisters in Islam, there is a hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that was revealed for people to be constant on the acts of ADA. What was that? What was the verse? What was the sutra that was revealed? To Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam? It is Surah Shara. Have you ever thought about the Tafseer or the

00:09:11--> 00:09:26

meaning of surah Shara? It was the verse it were the groups of verses the surah that was revealed to the prophet SAW Selim when he was wary of all the difficulties that he was. Imagine the difficulty upon the prophets are seldom.

00:09:27--> 00:10:00

Your Muslim melpomene Allah Allah, Allah Allah standard, the Knights in prayer, meaning he was doing the Hajj every single night. The scholars of Islam say the prophets of Salaam never missed this tahajjud on any night, except when he was traveling or he was sick. Or he was in jihad. Other than that, he never ever missed this tahajjud Can you imagine how difficult it must have been for Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam when he had no food, no rest in the morning deep heat despite all

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

of this to be constant on his ibadah so Allah revealed to him a very beautiful surah and he reveals so that all of Muslim men and the oma Mohamed Salah seldom can remind themselves through this surah What is this? surah Allah, Masha la casa de Perak. The very first thing you you forget, at the very first thing that a person who is feeling like all is actually better. There's too much on his head. He can't do it anymore. It's too much. I can't do it anymore can't get a job. I can't keep giving charity every day. I can't get up the very first thing that you tell a person who is feeling the difficulty of all the apps are about the piling up upon him is imagine what would happen if you

00:10:45--> 00:11:31

didn't have all of this hidayah Where would you be? What what God would you be worshiping? under which which stone? Would you be crawling under? Which animal would you be worshiping? Which either would you be worshiping if Allah didn't guide you to Islam? What Faruk what sect what misguidance where would you be if Allah did not guide you to Islam? And I'm not sure like, the first thing for anyone who is feeling like is extra about that too much for him is to remember did Allah not guide our hearts? Did Allah not guide our hearts to Islam? Alhamdulillah hilarya Donnelly hada lahmacun Molina de de la la de la next time you stand up for your taraweeh and you sell my bones are aching?

00:11:32--> 00:12:16

Oh, I can't do this anymore. It's affecting me. Think about Allah Masha Allah Subhana Allah guide you to this. Which other God would you be worshiping? What other Act would you be doing? If Allah did not guide you to this actor Eva, are you not thankful? Allah Masha, Allah kasandra. Dewayne, not guide your heart to this day and to this guidance. The second thing is what it is that the person who forgets and who thinks all is absolutely bad is too difficult upon him, not only fails to realize Allah guided him to something which is so precious, but fails to realize that Allah subhanho wa Taala in the process of guiding him through all of this, forgive his sins, and is forgiving his

00:12:16--> 00:13:04

sins that he is earning every day. There is no one amongst us except that we are earning sins every day. It is for this reason, equity, we need this extra data to be constantly removing our sins. And that is why the second verse says, alumna Shaka Sagara, wah wah wah with rock, and we have forgiven you your sins. So next time remember your equity? Why is Allah guiding you to this? Why should I be constantly my data because I have so many sins, and I need to remove my sins. I need repentance as the professor sunset, every single deed to another deep removes the bad deeds in between. Look at Salah the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said when a person says Allahu Akbar, and stands for Salah, all

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

his bad deeds are put on his shoulders. Then when he says Allahu Akbar and goes into record, his sins fall off his shoulders, authentic hadith reported in Muslim

00:13:14--> 00:13:58

equity, we all are sending every day and we need our sins to be forgiven. And that is why we need to be constant in our data because doing good deeds removes remove sins. And that is a second thing to remember, well that an unco is rock. Have we not forgiven your sins? This is a message to Rasulullah XSL and but to us as well, is Allah not forgiving a sin through all the good deeds? We're doing? Absolutely. Do we not do sins all the time? Absolutely. So why are we being lectured on this about that? Don't we need this either? Absolutely. So let's focus and get our energy back again and concentrate on this actor in other words and uncover his rock and number three, the third thing your

00:13:58--> 00:14:34

equity, does anyone hear? Is there anyone here except that we are under constant difficulty? Is there anyone here except that we are under constant threat from our enemies from the Shaitan from all the masiva and massage that Allah has created in this dunya? Yes, what is there anyone amongst us except that we are under constant threat of being attacked by the shaitan from the INS algin. or difficulties in this dunya so Allah says a third reason why we should be constant or X ray data. Do you know why?

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

I let the uncut rock the one who protects you and who is protected your back meaning the one who defends you from all the difficulties in this dunya so next time you remember when you stand up for taraweeh and you get lacks, didn't Allah guide us to this? Don't I have since I need to repent from isn't there a lot of mercy but out there that I need protection from that's why I need to be concerned in this actor ADA.

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

The third reason unless the uncut rock, the one who defends you, when you are asleep, the one who protects your back when you cannot protect your own Allah DMCA de la hora, the one who protects your back.

00:15:16--> 00:15:35

And number four, Have you realized this equity that with our X ray that Allah is raising us, Allah is glorifying us. Allah is raising our levels in Africa. Allah is mentioning us with those that are with them. Allah subhanho wa Taala is raising our mentioned what are

00:15:36--> 00:16:05

the Quranic verse number four, and we have raised your mentioned to Rasulullah Salim, Allah has raised his mentioned every single prophet has been called by his first name in the Quran, except for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam never has Allah subhanho wa Taala said yeah, Mohammed he has said yamasa Isa, yeah, but he has never ever said yeah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it has always been a you know bu

00:16:06--> 00:16:12

O Messenger of Allah. Oh prophet of God, my brothers and my sisters in Islam what are

00:16:13--> 00:16:41

the clock has Allah not raised you up as Allah not giving you wait as Allah not raise your mentioned has Allah not ordered you and an overview he has with every actor Eva, your status grows and this year and the author of the angels will call you by the best of names your status in general grows with every single good deed that you do. And but Allah Allah mentions you with those that are with him. What are

00:16:42--> 00:17:18

the correct four reasons for you to be constant in the actor Ada number one is Alhamdulillah Allah guiding us if I did not have this guidance, where else would I be? Number two I've got so many sins so I need to concentrate on this after I bother to wipe them out. Number three there's so much dangerous for me and my family. I need protection so I need to act on this after a bad so Allah protects me And number four allies raising me up allies raising my mentioned allies honoring me that's the fourth reason and then Allah says for in my last three years in

00:17:19--> 00:17:55

verily with difficulty is is very early with difficulty is ease. So if you're in difficulty Now, if you're in difficulty that ease will come right after. If you're in difficulty now then don't worry ease will come right after Ramadan does not continue for more than 30 days. You don't have a 31 days of Ramadan after difficulty will come ease after this test will come is the day of rejoicing the day of IE after every difficulty will come is after every difficulty will come ease for in my last three years in my last three years.

00:17:56--> 00:18:42

And the final advice of Allah subhanho wa Taala so that everyone has that patience in Allah subhanho wa Taala has that strength in a lesson panda what are the final advice for those people who need to recollect and be steadfast upon this religion and upon the extra data for either for the font swap. So when you go out in the path of Allah, or in the Tafseer of the Quran, it is mentioned that when you do absolutely that either for the font swap, meaning that when you have left you x or a burden finished from your phoropter means for our means when you are finished when you're first up, which means you're an escape, or you have free time for either for other means when you have finished your

00:18:42--> 00:19:28

x or Eva and your free time for either ferrata Francois, what is unsub What does it mean? It means that you should seek reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala when you're finished, you're in the habit of Dhamma work with a little arrow was Tata Tata ledger insha Allah, the Hadith rasulillah salam after you finish your fasting, what does it mean? That is when you're seeking the pleasure of Allah Alhamdulillah I fasted my veins have been wetted or my thirst is gone and insha Allah the archer is written for me, this is fun. This is to see the reward from Allah the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Man karma Ramadan Imani Saba in other Hadith he said man sama Ramadan imana mighty saben

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

whoever fast Ramadan whoever stands up Ramadan with Eman and 87 meaning asking Allah for reward luthier Allahumma Takata means that he has forgiven all his past sins. It is for this reason why our shapes and our scholars used to say when you feel hungry and thirsty in Ramadan, the look up to the heavens and say Allah be if it was not for you, I would have drunk your life. It was not for you. I would have eaten no one would have no life is not for you. I would have eaten Yara or remove this thirst or

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

00:22:23--> 00:23:03

my brothers and my sister Islam, if you can remain constant in your extra data, if you can remind yourself of the lessons of surah Shara, every time you become weak, you will become steadfast. You will be like the steadfastness of no Hara supersalon the steadfastness of moosari Salah Masako Salah, the steadfastness Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when Allah ordered him and said was Spiro C'mon sobre una as women are possible, and be patient on Mohammed Salah Salah, like the patience of the greatest of the messengers of God, meaning be constant on your actual Ada though Mohammed de Silva, like the greatest of the messengers of God were constant in the X ray better

00:23:03--> 00:23:20

despite all difficulty, my brothers and sister Islam if we do that, then our angels will come down at the time of our death and give us glad tidings. And it is because of this year with the app to help us succeed in this dunya and akhira. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us a beautiful day, the night of light,

00:23:21--> 00:24:07

the night of Layla Takata. The scholars are differences on which night it is even hotjar himolla mensagens virtual body there are 40 opinions on which night later the other night is 40 opinions. Some of the opinions even stated outside of Ramadan, but 30 opinion states it is within Ramadan. The strongest of the two opinions is either that it moves around in one of the 10 nights, mostly the odd nights it either moves around, or the second most strongest opinion is that it is the 27th night. Allison adversly Rahim Allah he said, he said rock up to shops. I saw the sun after each of the nights of the 10 nights or 50 years, and I found that the sun was without rays on the 27th night on

00:24:07--> 00:24:29

the morning of the 27th day. for 50 years of my life. The strongest opinion is that little color is on the 27th However, there's also many strong studies that show that later color could be on the 25th and 23rd. There are three authentic hadith in Abu Dhabi and intermediate others that little color

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

is on the 23rd of 23rd of Ramadan. Also in one authentic hadith in Bukhari, the prophets are seldom said I saw myself prostrating on mud on the night of laser cutter and that wasn't the 21st night it rained in Medina. So the scholars Islam say therefore Lolita kata night moves around and before you think it's odd days from the beginning, remember that also it could be 30 days and odd from the ending as well. And that is why the authentic hadith and Muslim it also says v sub s

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

Your car comes in your car, the last any meaning three days remaining five days remaining seven days remaining meaning odd from the beginning or or from the end. So therefore, doesn't matter order even. It doesn't matter order even every night have a little pattern of the last 10 nights is a high possibility of length other and the highest possibility is 27th night. But if you really really do not want to miss that the other then do not miss the last 10 nights any one of the 10 nights because bolide could be one night and you could have missed at three years or extra a bad day if you are just careless and just wait for the 27th so be of those people that struggle to make your nights

00:25:43--> 00:26:06

alive. Do not sleep. The professor never slept the nights of the last 10 nights. He used to knock on the doors of his wives. And he used to say, Aha, the ledger for Rupa Cassius cydonia Aria tineo malkia wake up the women of these homes for indeed the one who has closed it today maybe naked in the hereafter. Yeah, what do you do not sleep the night so let's

00:26:07--> 00:26:54

take those times out and pray the night and the apps are a bother that is well known as reading the Quran in your Salah. If you cannot do so while standing because you cannot then sit and read your ad in your Salah and stand up the nights of those last 10 nights you know about them Allah subhanho wa Taala and noble you glorify you in this dunya and offer a raise your levels in gender and give you a place and me and you a place with our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
