00:04:25--> 00:05:00

we begin with the praise of Allah. We praise Him we seek His help we ask his forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides, there is no one that can misguide him, and who has whoever Alon misguides there is no one that can guide him. And I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah, alone and with no partner. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the servant of Allah and His messenger. Or you who believe have Taqwa of Allah as he deserves you to have Taqwa of Him and do not do

00:05:00--> 00:05:50

Except as Muslims, all mankind have Taqwa of your Lord who created you from a single soul. And from it he created its mate. And from those two came many men and women and have Taqwa of Allah the one that you asked by his name and fear Allah with regard to your relatives and allies always watching over you. Or you who believe have Taqwa of Allah and speak a word that is true. He will correct your deeds and forgive your sins. And whoever obeys align His Messenger has certainly achieved the greatest success to continue the best speeches The Book of Allah, and the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The worst of matters in this religion are the

00:05:50--> 00:06:03

newly introduced practices. And all of these newly introduced practices in the religion of Islam are innovations and all innovation is misguidance and all misguidance is in the Hellfire as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

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

my brothers in Islam

00:06:08--> 00:06:11

we have entered into the season of winter.

00:06:13--> 00:06:18

Already in the city where we are you can feel the cold.

00:06:19--> 00:06:24

You can we even had snow a few days ago, you can see that the winter has come

00:06:25--> 00:06:33

and will lie he many people don't appreciate the benefits and the blessings of the winter.

00:06:34--> 00:06:45

And many of you will be surprised to hear what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and what the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu used to say about the winter

00:06:46--> 00:07:16

from the things that are said is the statement of Erma. Rob the Allahu and that he said as she thought oh honey metal IBT he said the winter is the prize of the worshipers. Is the is like a vanilla like what you get the from the wall when you get property and the wealth. You're getting this it's a big opportunity. It's a big prize this time of the winter.

00:07:17--> 00:07:22

I want you to ask yourself the question why do you think they used to love the winter so much.

00:07:26--> 00:07:39

It's narrated in a Heidi's and the Hardys has some weakness in it and some of the scholars authenticated it as she thought oh Robbie or not me that the winter is the spring of the believer.

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

This is the best time of the believers. Why do you think that could be? It's called you know you find it difficult outside, you find it hard when you wake up for fudger What is so amazing about the winter

00:07:55--> 00:08:01

that the Sahaba or the Allahu anhu used to praise it and they used to love it and they used to prefer it.

00:08:02--> 00:08:06

And that also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in some of the Hadith he praised it.

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

It is what is mentioned at the end of the Hadith por la la Lu for Karna.

00:08:14--> 00:08:25

Were casona ha hoo hoo for pharma because you can have a long night time. So you can easily pray the night prayer

00:08:26--> 00:08:31

and you can have a short day time so you can easily fast in the day.

00:08:33--> 00:08:38

So panela many of us our thinking is a thinking related to the dunya.

00:08:39--> 00:08:57

We don't think about things from the point of view of a bother of worshipping Allah. Look at the blessing of the winter for the people who fast. I remember when I first became Muslim Ramadan was in the winter it was maybe December or January.

00:08:58--> 00:09:00

It was so easy to fast.

00:09:02--> 00:09:05

Now our furniture adoption is at 620.

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

an hour Margaret is at 338.

00:09:10--> 00:09:14

You have the shortest time just a few hours.

00:09:15--> 00:09:20

You can easily fast but someone might say to me, but it's not Ramadan.

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

But there is voluntary fasting,

00:09:25--> 00:09:36

Seon totowa, the voluntary fasting that you can do. It's so easy to do in these days. What about the other thing mentioned in the Hadeeth the nights are long.

00:09:37--> 00:09:42

The night is very long. It gets dark by four o'clock here outside it's dark.

00:09:44--> 00:09:47

And the night continues until after six o'clock in the morning.

00:09:48--> 00:09:54

Think of all the blessings you can get all of the prayers you can do in the nighttime.

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

And why I'm saying this to you is that many of

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

As we don't have the habit of praying in the night, and we don't have the habit of fasting outside Ramallah, many of us I'm not going to say everybody because there is some people who do it. But many of us may be most of the people here, don't have the habit of fasting in the day. Outside Ramadan, they don't first. And they don't have the habit of praying at nights, meaning after a shower that's it, they don't pray anymore after they pray they soon after a shower. That's it, they don't pray after that.

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

This is the time to start.

00:10:35--> 00:11:20

This is exactly the time after the end of December, here in gates at the time is going to get longer, it's going to start going longer again. Now in this to three weeks, you have the best easiest time to teach yourself to pray at night, and to teach yourself to fast during the day. So this hotel, we're going to talk about the virtues of praying at night, the virtues of fasting, the voluntary fasts and how you can get started because this is the best time of year to get started with kiama Lane and it's the best time of year for you to fast if you are not used to fasting, the voluntary fasts.

And it hasn't Obasanjo Rahim Allah Allah He said, near mo Zamani, not many schita he said the best time for the believer is the winter laner who polygon Yakumo The night is long and it's easy for him to create one or her Oh casia on your Sumo, and the day time is short so he can easily he can easily fast it.

00:12:21--> 00:12:29

Let us start my brothers by talking just about one or two of the virtues of pmla I just want to tell you just a few.

00:12:30--> 00:12:49

00:12:50--> 00:12:57

He said they rise up from the side they were lying down on their side and they stand up.

00:12:58--> 00:13:51

And they start to pray to Allah and they make to our to Allah in fear and hope and they spend out of what We have provided them. Then Allah said, Nobody knows what we have given them from the pleasure of the AI as a reward for what they used to do, meaning as a reward for their kiama Lane. And as a reward for their spending for the sake of Allah. Allah Subhana Allah will give them things that they could not even imagine in general things that they they could not even think about things that will bring so much pleasure to them. Cold water iron, it will bring pleasure to their eyes because of what they used to do. And the two things that a lot mentioned that they used to do is they used to

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

get up to pray at night and that they used to spend from what Allah provided for them. And ally So Jen said in Turkey in Ephesians two What are your three the nama Tahoma boom, in whom can Oh cabella daddy Kumasi Nene, can Oh Cali la mina Lima Joe,

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

wobble as Harry who misspelled furor.

00:14:18--> 00:14:49

Allah said that the people of taqwa they are going to be in Jannat in gardens and springs, they are going to be taking what Allah has given them because of the good they used to do before. What's the first thing Allah mentioned? That was the good thing they used to do before? khanewal Kali la mina lady by Jeroen, they only used to sleep a little bit at night. They used to spend a lot of their night praying.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

They used to spend a lot of their nights praying. And Allah subhanaw taala said and men who are corny tune Anna Elaine says

00:15:04--> 00:15:10

Joe matara be cold help esta Willa de la buena one Levine Allah Allah moon.

00:15:12--> 00:16:02

Allah said as for the one who is standing throughout the night, making sujood and standing up, and he is fearing the Hereafter, and hoping for the mercy of his Lord. See all those who know equal to those who don't know, Allah made the people who know that people have in. They are the people who are standing in the prayer. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the hadith of Abu hurayrah, viola, one of those Salafi by del feriha salam to lay the best prayer after the fourth prayer is the nighttime prayer. The best prayer that you can pray is the nighttime prayer. And the nighttime prayer is a reason for you to enter Jenna with ease. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

sallam said in an authentic hadith

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

he said out to me

00:16:08--> 00:16:16

was Cyril our ham was on nope Elaine you are now Sonia. Tell Tiger hula Jenna choppy Salah.

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

give food out to people in charity. And keep ties with your relatives and pray at night when the people are sleeping and you will enter gender be salon safe, safety, happy, easy you will go to gender with happiness with safety you will go to gender because they used to pray at night. So now we have heard of this but there is one more thing that we have to mention. And perhaps if you see this is the best reason to pray at night you will not be wrong. And that is a authentic hadith from the hadith of Abu hurayrah and the Hadith in Sahih Muslim and others that he said that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said urine zero buena tabacco water cooler lady that's in Isla

00:17:09--> 00:17:24

00:17:26--> 00:17:35

He said that our Lord, Allah subhanho wa Taala comes down to the lowest heavens when the last third of the night is left

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

when there is a third of the night left.

00:17:40--> 00:17:56

And he says, Who is there making do add to me so I will answer what he asked me for who is asking me for something I will give him what he wants. Who is it who is asking my forgiveness, I will forgive him.

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

In Allah Allah.

00:17:59--> 00:18:26

Allah doesn't break his promise. Allah made a promise for the one preme kiama Lail in the last third of the night, and he's praying it in the last part of the night. The last third of the night, that Allah said, if they make do add to me, I'm gonna answer that you are. If they ask me for anything, I'm going to give it to them. If they asked me to forgive them, I'm going to forgive them.

00:18:27--> 00:18:31

This is the time in which a lot descends to the lowest heaven.

00:18:32--> 00:18:58

And it is a time of incredible Baraka so much good. Everything you want to achieve in your life, everything you hoped for in the Acura, you ask a lot this time. So now I want to tell you how can we achieve it? Because the reason I'm telling this to you if I tell it to you in the summer, it's hard. But I'm telling it to you now at the time when the day is as short as it can be.

00:18:59--> 00:19:16

How do you start? How do you start with this amazing thing? There are two options for you. I'm going to give you the best one first. We come up a little bit before photo. Remember now fetcher. adon doesn't start until 620 here

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

wake up at six o'clock

00:19:20--> 00:19:36

10 minutes to six five past six. Make your whoodle pray two rakaat in this to rock art ask Allah whatever you want. ask Allah for Jenna ask Allah forgiveness. ask Allah to give you from the dunya and

00:19:38--> 00:19:41

this is still in the time when Allah will answer you.

00:19:42--> 00:19:45

Even if it is 20 minutes before federal.

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

Just free to look at when you finish. If you didn't pray your Witter pre written if you haven't prayed with her already. If you prayed with her after a shower, you don't pray with her twice in one night. Just let it be

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

Pray to my cat to hydrate kiama lay five minutes each Raka if you struggling to read from the Quran, take the most half in your hand and read from the most half while you stand it. This is the best prayer after the fall prayer, and it's so easy to do in the winter. It's very hard to do other times but now it's very easy. Every one of us can wake up at six o'clock is not difficult inshallah, in the second part of the hotel we're going to talk about short days for fasting and why and how we can fast in the short days that we have in this winter time. A cool new mattress marathon was stopped for a lot of the money welcome what he said muslimeen I mean clearly then be forced out Pharaoh who

00:20:43--> 00:20:46

will come in who who will afford Rahim

00:21:04--> 00:21:16

al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam unelma Ruth Yurok Martin, Lil al amin Nabina, Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge mine.

00:21:17--> 00:22:03

And that we've been talking about the blessings of the winter time. And we said the reason the Sahaba they saw that winter was a blessed time is because the nights are long, and you can do a lot of a bada in the nighttime. And the daytime is short, so it's easy for you to fast. They didn't look at the dunya they didn't care if it was hot, or if it was cold. But what they looked at was what they could get for that after we mentioned pmla we said for the one who wants to start, okay, the one who is doing it regularly, that's fine, but the one who wants to start, this is a good time to start. Start just six o'clock in the morning 20 minutes, then maybe you can make it 30 minutes, then

00:22:03--> 00:22:17

maybe you can make it 14 minutes until it becomes easy for you. And as the Fed Your time starts to move back. You just move your alarm backwards, any show lights not difficult. Remember in the summer, you were waking up what time you waking up three o'clock in the morning in the summer.

00:22:18--> 00:22:39

So it's not difficult for you to wake up at six o'clock or quarter to six to get some of this reward. In the second part of the hotel. I want to talk about fasting because the second benefit from the great benefits of the winter time is that you get the benefit of voluntary fasting.

00:22:40--> 00:23:14

Allah subhanaw taala told us the benefit of the people who fast regulate a light switch I mentioned was slightly meaner Swati Matt will have a Lena Fujairah whom would have thought was Katie Nala Hakka theorem was accurate. I de la hula who mouthfeel rotten wa agilon alvina those people who fast from the men and the women and they fast not just only the wallet not just only the obligatory fast the voluntary fast as well. And those people who got their chastity

00:23:15--> 00:23:55

from the men and the women and those people who remember a lot much from the men and the women, Allah has prepared for them forgiveness and a great deal of rewards. And Allah subhanaw taala said kulu was shabu Hani and Bhima is left on film a yummy Korea eat and drink with pleasure because of what you did in the previous days, Mujahid rahima hola he said naza Let's hire the heel Aiya to fish saw a mean. He said this ayah was revealed about the people who fast

00:23:57--> 00:24:04

coudl Russia bouhanni and PMS left to fill a yam in hollier a minassian.

00:24:06--> 00:24:13

Eat and drink in pleasure out of what you used to do meaning the fasting that you used to do.

00:24:14--> 00:24:35

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us that whoever fasts de mon sama Yeoman fie sebelah by the law who would who any nury severina halifa whoever fasts one day, for the sake of Allah, Allah will make his face away from the Hellfire 70 years.

00:24:37--> 00:24:45

Whoever first one day for Allah, Allah will make his face 70 years away from the hellfire.

00:24:47--> 00:24:49

How easy is it now in the winter?

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

for you too fast, just two days in the week or three days in the month. Let's start with the easiest one.

00:25:00--> 00:25:26

The easiest one is three days in the month, which are the best three days to fast in the month, a year will be what our aim will be. They are the 13th and the 14th and the 15th of the hijiri month, not December, January, February, the 13th and the 14th and the 15th of the history month, the days when the moon is full.

00:25:27--> 00:25:56

Three days, what do you get if you fast these three days? You get the reward of the whole month. Why? Because l has to be Ashley unfairly her every good deed comes with 10 times rewards 10 times reward you fast three days, three times 1030 days, you got the reward of 30 days fasting you just fast three days in the month. If you want to do more than that. Why don't you fast on the Monday and a Thursday.

00:25:57--> 00:26:10

The prophets lie Selim he regularly consistently fasted on a Monday and a Thursday, a Monday and a Thursday, he mentioned that the deeds are shown to Allah and I love for my deeds to be shown to Allah when I'm fasting.

00:26:12--> 00:26:31

Now you can eat at six o'clock, you can eat at 10 past six here. And you can break your fast at 345 or 340 is very, very easy even for the people who were struggling in the summer. Some of the older people they were telling us we couldn't fast Ramadan in the summer,

00:26:32--> 00:27:12

but they can fast now, maybe some people had some conditions, some problems, medical issues they they were struggling too fast in the summer. But now they can fast in the winter. The days are short, so they can make up what they missed if they were making them up. Some people of course, they're not making them up because they are paying money instead. But the ones who are making them up they can make it up now when it's short. Likewise, the ladies who have some fast into makeup from Ramadan, they can make up now when the days are short. And you can also do your voluntary fasts just a Monday and a Thursday. You'll see so many benefits the profit sighs haven't described fasting a

00:27:12--> 00:28:01

solo, Juna, it's a shield for you. It's a shield for you. So many harms are going to come to you they get stopped by your fasting. So in this hotel, we just briefly wanted to explain to you two things which are very, very beneficial about the wintertime. Number one, it's very easy to fast, and it's not hot outside, it's not difficult to fast. And number two is very easy to start praying to family. Of course we wish that we will pray every night. We wish we will fast all the year round. But no doubt all of us we go through good times and bad times, ups and downs, our demand goes up and down. But now is an excellent time for us to start. There is a beautiful Hadith. And maybe I will

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

just mention it very, very quickly.

00:28:05--> 00:28:07

Why we should be doing these things.

00:28:09--> 00:28:30

It's a hadith which Avi hurayrah narrated from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet so I tell them to read it from Allah. And the part of the Hadees that I want to focus on is the statement of Allah that the Prophet slicin narrated from him. When that occurred, Robert E. T. B Shea in a hab that led me to LA

00:28:32--> 00:28:37

there is nothing that is more beloved to Allah to come near to Allah with the fourth that's the best.

00:28:38--> 00:28:46

Then Allah set warmer Yes. Who Abdi Takara boo Isla Joby Noah, Phil Hatter or HIPAA?

00:28:47--> 00:29:03

And my server will keep on coming close to me with optional things kiama Lael, extra fasting, extra charity, extra reading of the Quran until I will love him

00:29:04--> 00:29:07

this is how you get a lot to love you

00:29:08--> 00:29:29

by voluntary deeds for either Pep to come to some holiday yes my ob well boss hola hola de obscene Obi wire the hula to Patricia be her worry Julia who let em Sheba what in Salah Nila Tiana wala in is the reason.

00:29:31--> 00:29:33

He said that if I love my servant,

00:29:34--> 00:29:55

because of the optional deeds he's doing, then I am going to become the hearing that he is with and the sight that he sees with and the hand that he strikes with and the leg that he walks with. And if he asks me for anything, I'm going to give it to him. And if he seeks my protection, I'm going to give him my protection.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

So this is a reminder, first of all to me

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

And then to all of you, let's not waste the blessings of this short days and long nights in this season of winter.

00:30:10--> 00:30:33
