Tomorrow is a 20th of the month of Ramadan, which means tomorrow night that marks the beginning of the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan.
Elijah our as we know them, and Allah should our Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he used to dedicate extra time and more time for the end of the month of Ramadan for a very special event that he needs to be prepared for. And that special event that we all know it as Laila to cuddle the night of power, which Allah subhanho wa Taala said Laila to Qadri Hiraman alpha, that was shipping in what's one single night, that's better than 1000 month. Basically, that's over 80 plus years, an entire lifetime. You've been given an entire lifetime of worship, just by adding one single night to schedule a new day by the mela. So homemakers among them are witnesses.
And we ask a lot of hard to give us the ability to worship Him and devotion. But I mean, but then what is so special about these 10 nights, what would they call 10 nights. See what come to the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan. A lot of people they miss the opportunity because again, our work schedule is so heavy. Unfortunately, we don't have the opportunity and the time to worship, you know properly in the last night of Ramadan. So some of us they dedicate more worship during the day and Allah bless them and accept from them. But what is unique about that the last night of the month of Ramadan is that the better and the worship, it's during the night, not during the day. That's what
matters at the time. The event is done during the night, not during the day. Why is that? Because the night in itself has a very unique
Characteristics even when a loss of how not what I could the night and the day, he spoke about them differently in the Quran, Allah tala fallibilist by wotja Allah Allah Allah second
for a spa, which means his the breaker of the dawn.
And look at the expression that door has been broken like it's something was subtle and then it was breaking through. That's the dawn. But then he said wacha Allah, Allah, Allah Sakina and he made the night so serene.
When you think of serenity, when you think you know that peace and tranquility, you find that more during the night than it is during the day. Obviously, if you live in a normal time and normal conditions
would you live in these normal conditions? You see that the peacefulness of the night, the serenity of the nights, Allah subhanho wa Taala is hinting to us over here. Watch Allah Laila second, and a night for peace to tranquility, which means this is the best time when your mind and your heart are serene, and the energy is now as positive. This is the best time when you connect with your Lord subpanel what Allah Allah azza wa jal spoke of the omaze Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Salah hain his he said oh Martin, Paul, Emma, Tony Luna I Elaine,
Elaine. They're all Martin Karima and the meaning of Amato common is a nation. People call a madness in devotion standing in devotion, reciting the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala throughout the night.
Look at this, Allah Subhana his doesn't give us any command here is not a command is not an order. But what is it? Allah subhana wa Taala speak what we call a cat and Hal, which means he is speaking about the condition of the believers.
As if he's doing what He's inviting me and you to join this group, this bless that group of that oma, those people, that nation that stands in devotion throughout the night, reciting the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala out of all of all the other other than acts of worship that Allah spoke about and this I mentioned what that is citation of the Quran.
The recitation of the Quran, he didn't say now how long or how much that was left for you. But the the citation the Quran in salah and a VEDA, hinting that the again the piece possible the night should be filled with a citation of the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah azza wa jal spoke of the believers as well, he said, Colonel kalila mina layli Maya Jang Cano, karela, Mina, Laila, Maya Joan about the believers, little they this they slept during the night, even though the night is supposed to be for what for peace and tranquility, for second for serenity. But they used to use that not just for sleeping. They used to use that serenity of the night to empower themselves.
They use that piece of the night in order to empower themselves throughout the day, doing what Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well as Harry whom yourself Iran, and during the Assad regime, or Sahaba, plural of Sahar and Assad is the last hour of the night.
The last portion of the night is called the Sahaba and the Arabic language why because many people now they're completely asleep and they missed the opportunity of being awake before federal for us for America for federal we woke up early before the comma. Maybe Ramadan is different right now. So we enjoy some of the Sahar but what are we doing during the Sahel time in Ramadan? are we sitting there doing what Allah says will us hire him yourself through their seeking forgiveness during the time of Sahar most people are just preparing for the meal? They're preparing for this to home.
When Allah subhana wa tada they spend their time of Sahar doing is still far seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah make us among the Jima even Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam
Rasulullah sallallahu ala was to Ramallah he used to dedicate more time you know with the Quran, again, especially in the last 10 minutes of the month of Ramadan. So the very famous Hadith we know about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Cana as woodenness he was the most generous of all people. What can I do with my akuna Ramadan, and he is more generous during the month of Ramadan when specifically hanaa yet he jabril when jabril comes to him, and they study the Quran together. And every year the prophets Allah Sam used to review the Quran would you read once, except in the last year he did that twice, sort of what the law who was lmra and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam used
to use to do a T calf 10 nights or 10 days, every year. That particular year, he did 20 sallallahu wasallam he didn't just dedicate 10 nights he did 20 nights dedicated in the month of Ramadan, the last Ramadan that he attended sallallahu wasallam in worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala
also been heard a pharaoh the Allahu Allah and he said, Call according to philosophy, I was in that delegation that came
Prophet sallallahu wasallam when they became Muslim sensitive, and who was stuck if the cave is a tribe that lived in a path, a path was the harshest on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam when he gave them when he delivered Dawa to them, but then after the conquest of Mecca, they became Muslims. And when they embraced Islam, some of them not all of them though, they embrace Islam and one of them was Beto Malik. So he said, they came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as if they're separating themselves from the people above, and came to embrace Islam. So the prophets of Allah sent to honor their presence. He gave them certain area between his houses and the masjid and they build their
tent over their house they've been hurt a fire he said that the alarm on fire can have a sort of Lahore sallallahu alayhi wasallam Yeah, Danny Paulina Bina booty obaidul Masjid the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam he used to come every now and then, on his way to the house, to his houses, he was stopped by our place. I was away to the masjid he was stopped by our place so you keep visiting them over and over again. He says, usually during the night for either Salah
in Salah in sort of Elena, when the professor Sam used to finish his Saturday shot at night, he was stopped by and he spent more time with us. What was he saying sola Sallam he said he used to he used to speak about his days in Mecca. And he would complain to them about what happened between him and his own people in Mecca. As if he's reminding them that you know, he needed his their support. So what the lie was that um, Ali says one night, the prophets Allah Sam did not come right after Asia. And they were waiting for him. They kept waiting for him until it was a little bit late. Then he showed up.
When he showed up, the answer was that was what happened to Rasul Allah is Allah salla for Cairo, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for Allah has been on Quran for Allah to Allah, Raja hatanaka. He said, I was a little bit behind on my dissertation. So I didn't want to leave the house. Until I finished my assignment.
Even the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, he dedicated certain assignments for himself. When it comes to the recitation of the Quran.
A lot of us who have come to the night prayer, we do this as nothing, as we call it, right? And the meaning of saying that film is extra. Volunteer, that's extra. So as a result of calling it extra, and thinking of it as being something that extra, we always leave it until we have time for it. If I have time for I'll do it. And how often do we find that time to do it anyway?
Very little. Why? Because we've convinced ourselves that this is extra. And then it's extra, if I have time, I will do. But if you ask yourself outside of the month of Ramadan, when was the last time you did this? When was the last time you stood in to record for record a tracker sometimes in the middle of the night or the end of the night? Doing Korea, Malaysia or tahajjud? When was the last time?
And what do you plan after the month of Ramadan? Once Ramadan is over? And the night prayers are now done? How are you going to do about that? Are you going to still consider that extra are you going to do like the Prophet salla sam did, he made it as an assignment, which means he always organized his time Salawat Allah was that I'm gonna look at this, even though meeting these people was very essential for the Prophet sallallahu wasallam maintain a relationship with men effective and when he married quantative that's very crucial for him Salawat Allah wa salam O Allah, but that does not distract him from putting his priorities first and right.
So he sallallahu wasallam spend that time with the Quran first. And then he went out to them and he spent some time with him Salawat to LA he was Allah Mohali. You see when they asked the Prophet salla Salam colarusso Lakota has liberal Quran, how then would you divide your citations of the Quran? So they get he gave them suggestions. He said three Sutras, five sewers, seven sewers, nine sewers in that fashion.
So he would resign based on this the professor Sam would recite a lot of sewer. And if we know if we know that one time the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam in one single night, he he resided, Surat Al Baqarah Surah Nisa, and so are Emraan in one single Raka all of this in one single record. Imagine if you know that the prophet SAW Sam used to spend at night used to recite a track or 11 ryka
How long would that be? I know for many would say that's that I'm gonna get fired then the next day. I understand that but at least the moment that we're making the point we're making over here is that make this as an assignment. Never ever make your nighter. Avada and unite worship as an extra excess. Don't make this something you know if I have time for it. No, you have to make the time for it. You have to designate that moment for yourself. It's for your own good. If Allah subhana wa Taala told you the night was made for your second which means for your serenity for tranquility,
To find peace, there are a lot of telling you that and he's hinting and he's giving you the instruction on how you can gain that peace and that tranquility and that serenity, especially in times, like hours. whatever time you open the TV or open the internet, or you go out to the streets and meet some people, on friends and so on, or what you hit negativity.
You keep hearing more negative things, unfortunately, every day, every day, every day and every night probably. So the least you could do to your own self is when the night comes in. And everybody's sleeping your household and handle your family's sleeping, that you wake up somehow, right before your time. I need you to record for ryka get that peace and tranquility that you're asking for and you're looking for from the Quran, specifically during the night Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam even outside of the month of Ramadan, he would dedicate a lot of his time at night for the citation of the Quran at night I know most of us will do that during the day but it's
at night that the prophets are submitted indicate the time for the recitation of the Quran. So some of these examples Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he used to sometimes lie Anahata chakra and if Lam Meem Tenzin
and Tabata Kala DBT hilman the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, sometimes he wouldn't go to sleep until he recites a search them or Sora Tabarak and sometimes both of them but that's not every single night because they alternate but the point is that he would do that before he sleeps a lot allow us that our money How much did that take from you? How much time 10 minutes 1520 euros Lotus either maybe half an hour, half an hour and winter from 10 hours maybe a night or eight hours or seven hours. That's that hamdulillah that's a blessing. Half an hour dedicating some time for the Quran. They say that Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam color Kala Ram hatanaka Zuma robbery Israel,
sometimes it is a sort of Zoomer. Sometimes the results are destroyed which means certain is wrong. Now that's a little bit longer. Surah Right. and if we talk about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam who decides with 13 and with beautiful re citation Salawat Allahu wa salam O Allah, it takes a while, but he would dedicate that time salatu wa salam during the night, not just during the day Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam according to Hyderabad, urban Surya, he cannot call Musa behat Kabbalah and eurocode
Kanaka Jacobi Musa behat he used to decide with the Musa Musa had the sutras that begin with the word Subhana Allah.
You said behold Allah Subhana Allah at the beginning of the sutras. So these sutras such as Al Hadith, Al hirscher, a soft al Juma a turban, he used to decide some of them Salawat the law was Somali during the night as well. And he said that there is in these Sutras, there is an ayah, probably of the best either revealed that were revealed to him salvato was Somali, it became clear to him or louder his Deaf seed, he said probably he's referring to the iron circle, Harry, who will,
who will be conditionally that he is the first and he's the last panel with the Allah. And he's the above and he's a pile of data all over meaning in terms of fueling his combat encompassing all this creation. He's in control of all of this, well, who will be coalition and even he has the knowledge of all things subhana wa Taala. But the meaning again, going back again to the Prophet sallahu wa sallam, he used to alternate he said many many different suitors. I know some people, they dedicate themselves for one surah in particular. So people that are saturator waka sometimes and they decide on a sort of molk tabacalera beer mug. That's fine if you dedicate your time for one surah but if
you alternate Do you have a Sunnah in the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to guide us and instruct us as well to decide at least sure to us. Some people they say I'm too lazy for this when I go to bed, I'm like a dead body. I could barely even say Bismillah. So what do I do at least read some of the short sutras that were instructed to recite, for example, ayatul kursi. In the story of Abu huraira de la Noir, he said one day the prophets of Allah Salam asked him to God some of the words for the received and they put them in them as they didn't have a treasury or a bank or anything like that. So they leave everything in the masjid. And they leave it for the trustworthiness of the people and the honesty of
the people. So hurayrah since he lived in the masjid, being one of the poor people so far, he said, and I'm so used to God, the that pile of you know, the spoils.
One night as Obama was sleeping the visit, he had somebody picking from that from that pile.
And he goes and He's surprised he finds a man he couldn't recognize. So he grabbed his hand
Rasulullah I'm gonna go and take the profits of the lesson. Like I'm gonna take you there. And the man says completable Herrera says please leave me alone. You know, I'm not gonna do that.
I'm so sorry I have family I have kids I have this I have that. Given all these excuses, he says, I swear I'm not gonna come to him. That's it I'm not gonna come again.
So the next day the prophets of Allah said he felt so soft for this message. Okay, fine, that's fine. Just go and he left him.
The next day the prophets Allah sent me Cesar Barrera he goes
what happened with you and that guy last night? I was shocked like how did you know about him? He thought he's gonna keep it you know, just for him so that he doesn't disclose the expose this man.
And he told the prophet SAW someone happened and avoid off course he said, so he says, I gonna come back again. The professor Sam said, No, sir. He said he's coming.
He's gonna come. Abu hurayrah He said, I knew he was coming because the Prophet Allah Sam said so. So I was waiting for him that night.
So when he showed up and he started speaking from that pile of oil, I grabbed him again. And he says will la healer find Nikita Rasulullah this town taking you for sure to the prophets of Allah salah and the Man's Search, you know, kind of pleading for him with him and say, Please don't do that. That's it the last time I have my kids, our family, and he insisted on him. Then finally he kind of like felt so bad. He said, Okay, fine. Don't do that again.
The next day, the purposes of what happened with you and the guy last night, and our just like, he promised he's not coming back. That's it. He goes.
He's coming back again. Oh, boy. He said, I knew he's coming back because the professor So this time, the third time he when he grabbed him. He goes, that's it. I gave your chances. You come into the profits or loss. I'm taking it out now. He says no, no, listen, if you let go of me, I'll teach you something. Would you take it from me something that's very valuable for you if you do so, no shirt on. No one will approach you when you're asleep. Because what is it? Of course when it is some the Sahaba of the law hired for the ACA and the dinner they would let go whatever. So he said fine, I'll take it. What is it? He goes? If you ever go to your bed, make sure to recite ayatul kursi
Allahu Allah, Allah Allah who will who will kill you. And if you decide that no gin, no shaitaan will be able to hurt you when you're asleep. sobre la Garvin. And then with a puppet asked him what happened? He told him what he told him about ITIL could see the process. There are some certain ama in who called sadhaka wahaca loop. He told you the truth, even though he is known to be a liar. Like he's always lying, but this time he told you the truth, about ayatul kursi. And then the proper answer, boy, he said have you know did you not even know Did you know who was whom you've been dealing with the last few nights said no color in the whole show is that shaytan which means from
the jinn, not the shaitaan but as a ton from the jinn. You've been dealing with him for the last three nights. And they know they know the power of the Quran. So it's not that this shaper or this Jin was the one who gave us the instruction, that Rosaura lies that allows them sanctioning that suggestion that the true indeed ayatul kursi has that power. It's a shield. It's a shield when you go to bed that you guard yourself and your children with courtesy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
When he used to go to bed, he would recommend that you blow in your hand you cup your hand and you blow three times. And then you decide Oh Hola, cullotta verbal Falak Polo zebra bananas, and you wipe over your body. From top all the way down. You guard yourself by the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you do this to your children as well. And again, that is during the night Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam recommended that when you go to sleep. You also decide the last two I heard from Surah Al Baqarah, Rasulullah sallallahu, Morro Bay we'll move on to the end. So you decide that even when you go to bed again, that is at night. So the Quran the relationship between the Quran and the
night is a great sooner. You see even Rasulullah is still a lot of terms of Allah even when he wakes up at night. The first thing that he would pronounce will be the Quran. And the story of an ambassador of the law of the land when he was sleeping in the house of my mother is on the wife of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he said the Messenger of Allah was asleep. And when he woke up he says he dropped his he asleep off his eyes. First thing he did he was reciting from the end of surah Allah Emraan she was reciting as he was waking up from his bed. Many people this is the moment they woke up what do they do Gemma? They grab their phones.
They want to check the last email the last message the last whatever that is they're wasting their life on their terms of how we've been preoccupied with things that don't help us in the dunya.
But here's the sort of law he said the moment he wakes up, he would start reciting the Quran Salatu law he was lmra and there is more. There is much more when it comes to the relationship of the Quran. The Quran with the with the night, but remember, Allah subhana wa tada made the night. Second, which means for peace and tranquil
It is up to you how you want to utilize your night and how you can get that peace and tranquility. But the advice that we have from the son of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is by filling it with that which brings you the true peace and tranquility and that is the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says alladhina amanu
Allah, Allah medicalize lube, indeed those who believe in Allah azza wa jal What up man no problem with a koala and their hearts found peace and tranquility and the remembrance of Allah indeed, to the remembrance of Allah. The hearts will find peace aku colada was tough rollin Morocco some similar stuff through in order for Rahim
al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam o Baraka, Vina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira mama bad
mother brothers and sisters, when Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah azza wa jal give the instruction to the Sahaba de la Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in particular, to recite the Quran at night to certain Muslim men or young Muslim men from La La kalila
Oh, you are Muslim and the one who's wrapped in his nose, shrouding himself basically with his blanket. Common line, Kara
just get up
COVID Layla illa karela stand up to Allah subhana wa tada for the sake of Allah zosen in devotion the entire night in la cadena except for little. nessa who own Kuzmin who kalila have more or less was the LA
Khurana tatula. And spend that time of that night doing what
authority recite the Quran in 13. In peace and tranquility and beauty, this is how the night is supposed to be spent. The Sahaba took this instruction to heart and they followed that instruction properly or the Allahu anhu even also the law is still alive still and he reported many times for us the habits of the Sahaba de la Ron inheritable musala Sharia law and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam one night he was gonna check in the community. He was going out there making sure everything is okay in the city of Medina. That's at night. And on his way around, he would hear the hummingbirds. The humaines have their citation of the companions holla Can you imagine how beautiful that would sound?
Imagine if you walk in the neighborhood, instead of having the TV blasting and the subwoofers and the music and so on. What are you hearing? The homins of the worshippers?
were an amazing sound would it be especially back then the neighborhood the neighborhoods were smaller houses were closer and when you hear people humming you can hear it all over the place. So one night the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he told Abu Musa lashari Abu Salah Shara, he had beautiful voice. He said to him so last lm lower right and he asked me that illogical barrier, says man like saying if you have seen me last night when I was listening to the citation,
what was he telling me says I was there and I couldn't I couldn't help it. I stopped to listen to the citation was so beautiful. Abu Musa he said Yasser Allah had I known that you were there listening to Hubbert, who look at the hubiera I would have made it even much more beautiful.
Like I was excited just for myself, but if I know that you would enjoy the dissertation, which made it even more and more beautiful. So at night, the Sahaba used to do that. One night, I will say that
God allowed to run, he came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam by Nima Jaco vanilla in Surah Al Baqarah. He was starting from Surat Al Baqarah, Sunday Surat Al Kahf. And then he said, I kind of start seeing the light above my head. He said I looked up and it was like a Lula it just like a cloud with light. He's looking up there and just kind of like his his his source was, was getting an ease and he was terrified for a sonata three times, he stopped reciting. The next day he told the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the Prophet capital and Cora. Yahoo said, Keep reading, I will say don't stop next time. Don't stop, don't stop. He told him. These were the angels. They came to
listen to your beautiful citation
came to listen to the beautiful recitation. So when you're reciting at night alone, you're not really alone. You're in the company and the best company ever, the company of the angels who would come and descend down to and listen to that beautiful citation. You might say, you know what, I don't have that beautiful voice.
You don't have to have a beautiful voice. The Quran will make your voice beautiful.
Once you just start the Quran, the angels will come to listen, because they listen to the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The last night of the month of Ramadan are starting tomorrow inshallah zildjian.
