your Muslims do you know that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was always eager and excited to meet the angel Jibreel he would be looking forward when God comes down, I shall to the Allahu Allah says that he would even use the miswak like look and and try to appear the best and even smell the best. And in fact, once he asked Djiboutian that, oh god, why don't you come more often? Why don't you visit us more often? We want to see you more. And Allah then revealed in the Quran, a verse that we recite to this day, one at 10, zero 11 Arabic we can only come down when Allah allows us to come down. I wish I could come but not it's Allah's decision. When Allah tells us to come, we

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

come. And Gibreel said, the prophets Assam said to Djiboutian Oh gibril Let me see you in your original form. So Gibreel said Make dua to Allah I kept this from Allah as decision make dua to Allah. And so the prophecies are made dua that oh Allah allow me to see God in His original form. And so Allah gifted him that Allah gifted him that vision, in one of the most amazing miracles that was given to our Prophet Sall Allahu Allah, he was seldom to be in the presence of God, and to see God in His original form. This is something that not many of the Creation have been blessed with. Allah blessed our Nebby sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be in the presence of the original gibril

00:01:55--> 00:02:35

Jibreel as Allah created him. Generally when GBT would come he would come in the form of a man. Generally when Gibreel came down, he would not be in His original form, when the process and made dua, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada granted him that door out when did he grant him that dua on the night of Israel? Well miraj when the prophecies of went to visit Allah subhanho wa taala, and he met all of the prophets, and he saw all of these amazing signs. One of the most amazing blessings of that night the whole night was a miracle. The whole night was a blessing, but one of the most amazing blessings which Allah referenced in the Quran, Allah mentioned it in the Quran. That's how magnificent it is,

00:02:36--> 00:02:52

is that the prophets of sin saw God in His original form. Allah says in the Quran, lcada Rahman, Tierra del Cobre, he saw of the most amazing couponraja Kabir of the most biggest miracles of Allah he saw.

00:02:53--> 00:03:39

And Allah azza wa jal references this vision, what was the vision the Prophet system seeing Gibreel in His original form, and in fact, Gibreel as we know is the chosen of all of the angels like our Prophet system is the chosen of all mankind. Allah says in the Quran, Allah who use sloughi mineral mana it Cthulhu Sunon Wamena gnas Allah chooses Rasul from the melodica and Rasul from the, from the mankind. So Allah chose from the mana Iike the most best of them Gibreel and Allah chose from the Rasul of the humans, the best of them, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Gibreel, visited every single prophet, every single messenger Gibreel spoke with every single profit from the 124,000

00:03:39--> 00:03:55

from the beginning of time, up until our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Allah He was selling them, one of the most amazing miracles and creations of Allah. And he would come regularly in the time of the Prophet sallallahu. Either he was selling them, and then our profits are some left this earth,

00:03:56--> 00:04:40

one of the senior most Sahaba in terms of age, even though she is not well known amongst many Muslims is somebody by the name of Baraka on me. Amen. Oh, may Amon, was Abdul multiple lives gift to Abdullah the father of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she was a slave at the time. And she was probably eight 910 years old. She took care of the Prophet system when the process was born. And she was like a second mother to him. And she saw me Can you imagine what she saw? She saw everything from the beginning. And she lived until after the Prophet system she passed away a few years after the Prophet system. Can you imagine how we wish we could hear her stories insha Allah

00:04:40--> 00:04:46

when they engender we hope we can ask her all the stories we want. After the death of the Prophet salallahu Salam,

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

Abu Bakr and Umar Radi Allahu Anhu. They said, You know, we should visit only Amon like our prophets or some would regularly do this call Surah to rhyme This is called fulfilling the ties of the dead

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

The Prophet system would visit this motherly figure in his life regularly. She was a freed slave. She was not somebody known to many people, but she took care of the Prophet system. So after the death of the process of Bukhara Omar said, Let us go visit only Amen like the Prophet system used to visit so the two senior most companions visited me Amen. When she saw them all the memories flooded back and she began crying and sobbing. Abu Bakr said, yeah, oh Ma, our dear mother, we all miss the prophets of Allah who either he was sending them inshallah he's in a better place. Now he's in fifth dose. What did only Amen say? She said, Well, Allah, He, I know he is in a better place. And of

00:05:38--> 00:06:21

course we missed him. But I am crying. Listen to this. Because the connection that we had with Allah, and the way that would come down Gibreel would come visit us that has now been cut off. We don't have that connection anymore. With the going away of the prophets, Allah Allahu Allah, he was setting them, there is no more why he coming down. There is no new Quran coming. We will be excited when the revelation can we be excited when God came with something new, she was crying because that connection with Gibreel had been cut off. That connection with the way had been cut off. This was how they would look forward to a new revelation that God would bring down. Dear Muslims.

00:06:22--> 00:06:33

Why am I talking about God? Because Allah has blessed every one of us with the opportunity to be in the presence of God.

00:06:34--> 00:07:25

There is a night that is so blessed that there is a night that is so magnificent, that Allah azza wa jal has allowed the greatest creation of his angels. Allah has commanded the most magnificent of all of the angels to come down and be in our presence because of the blessedness of that night. It is the only night of the year the Jubilee visit starts again after the demise of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And of course, he comes down the way he is, we cannot see him but he is as he is turnersville Mana Iike to war rule hilfi. Allah mentions it for us. He wants us to know it's not a normal night. It's not an average night. I am sending the best of the angels down to all of you

00:07:25--> 00:08:15

don't you understand and realize, I am allowing God to come and I'm telling him and Allah references to us. He literally reminds us all mankind, I am telling you, God, this coming down. That's how special this night is. Tonight, saloon Mala Iike to war Ruhul. Fiat, the rule and it is God, all of the angels come and Gibreel. So Allah mentions all the angels, and then he mentions only one because there is only one God. And Allah reminds us this is the only day that God is going to come down. One of the Sahaba It is narrated that he would have special codes that he would put in a special box, and he would wear it not on the read. But on later to other one of his family members said that oh

00:08:15--> 00:08:54

Father, why are you dressing like this on later to cut it wait for it to come? And he said Subhanallah Gibreel is coming down? Shouldn't I dress up for him? Gibreel is coming shouldn't I prepare myself to be prepared? When I come? I'm looking my best one Djiboutian sees me. Another of the tab your own would have his most expensive perfume, he would store it in a container, and he would use that perfume every night of the odd nights of Ramadan so that he's smelling the best. This is the philosophy the psychology of the self, that they appreciated, they understood that the angels are going to be in our midst and the angels are seeing us and we want to look our best appear our

00:08:54--> 00:09:38

best do our best because the angels see us and they make dua for us when they see our Ibadah when the angel see a standing and pm in such the in Tilawat This is on any night, not just from Yvonne on any night when the angels see us they make us didn't fall for us. They ask Allah azza wa jal to bless us this is in the Quran and Sunnah we all know, but especially on a little other, can you imagine we have the opportunity for God to make dua for us, for God to see us and see us in pm and see us in such depth how can we possibly give up that opportunity? How can we let go of this blessing and prize that has been given to us the greatest of all angels is coming down and he shall

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

scour this entire earth and we have the opportunity to be standing and praying and asking Allah azza wa jal and to be witnessed by those angels, Laila to other women will come. Leila will order the phrasing of the Quran which will make you understand you will never understand our limited minds will never comprehend the magnificence that

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

It is Laila to other when Allah says warmer the raka the meaning here is you're never going to understand but I'll try to explain to you that from our limited minds way maybe you will understand that this one night is better than 1000 months Laila to color the high you don't mean elfish out maybe you will understand this one aspect it is better than not equivalent to better than it's more than one night is more than a lifetime of worship. It is narrated in the motto of Imam Malik there are prophets Allah Allahu Allah, he was seldom looked at the previous lifespans, and he realized they live for many, many centuries. And he said, Oh Allah, how can my ummah compete with those

00:10:37--> 00:11:19

people? My own was going to live for 6070 years. They live for hundreds of years. How can my Alma compete with them as a loving prophet? What he was worried about? He wanted to see us succeed. He wanted to see us number one, and he is saying yeah, Allah, how can my Alma compete when they had a longer time? And so Allah subhana wa Taala revealed only for our own mother, he blessed us with Leila two other every year he gave us a night that one night is equivalent to more than 80 years of worship. So every year we live it is as if we have a lifetime of worship that the other Roombas did not have this as a unique blessing given to our OMA no previous OMA was given it Laylatul Audrey

00:11:19--> 00:12:04

hieromonk l Fisher her this one night of worship will give us more than 83 years of continuous worship Subhanallah brothers and sisters, how stingy can we be? How miserly can we be? How can we possibly not be excited to wake wake up the night of labor to other and to do extra on labor to do the math every minute of labor to an other is worth more than two and a half months of worship? Every minute? Can you imagine simply saying 10 times Subhan Allah will give you two and a half months of vicar and a bada. How can we possibly trivialize this blessing that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has given us Laila to other it is called the literal other because other means magnificence other

00:12:04--> 00:12:45

means significance. It is the most magnificent night and those who worship Allah on that night become magnificent. Those who worship Allah become other become people of status, little other is called other because other means predestination. And on this night, our cover is announced for the rest of the year. On this night, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells the angels our mother who shall live who shall die Who shall be given a child who shall increase it is whose sickness is going to be cured who shall fall sick on this night Allah announces to the angels the roster the list of duties of what they have to do for the rest of the year, then as Zulu Mala eco we're roofie ha be in the

00:12:45--> 00:13:29

rugby him min Cooley amor every affair that has been decreed min Cooley amor everything that has been decreed the angels come down there tasks have been assigned and what did our prophets Allah Allahu Allah he was setting them say nothing changes Kadar other than do nothing changes other other than dua. In other words, our dua has the impact has the possibility has the potentiality to change our color? How can we not be begging Allah while our cutter is being decided while our cover is being announced? How can we not be standing in prayer and begging Allah Oh Allah bless us with the best other of this year. Oh Allah give us the best of this world and the best of the next world. Oh

00:13:29--> 00:14:12

ALLAH forgive our sins. Our do ours on that night have the potential to affect the upcoming year how can we be asleep out of laziness and not to be standing in prayer Our mother I should know the Allahu anha says that our prophets of Allah Who are they he was sending him would never spend the whole night awake on any night of the year he would sleep certain portions of the night 1/3 half two thirds he would sleep except for the last 10 nights of Ramadan. The only time of the entire year that he would not sleep until after fajr is the last 10 nights and on those 10 Nights our Prophet our mother Aisha says he would tighten his belt we all know what that means you're going to get

00:14:12--> 00:14:47

serious now he would raise up his sleeves we say in English he would tighten his belt and he would wake his family and he would spend the entire night in a bother now brothers and sisters I know we have to be realistic. And I know many of us have jobs and we have to go to work at eight 9am The next morning I understand many of us cannot spend the whole night awake by the way those who can they should and those who are able to take holidays Wallahi if you can take a holiday or two on the odd nights of the next day. It is better than taking a holiday to go on a vacation or something. This is the real holiday that you try to have. But if you can do it fine. If you cannot do that I

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

understand we cannot spend the whole night awake, at least spend whatever you can. There is no time in the entire year that is more precious than this time of Laylatul Qadr that is why Allah calls it Laila mobile

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

aka The Quran mentions that it will cover many times three times in Surah Takada and two times outside of the surah. Five times Allah references later to cover in Anza. Now Fei Li let him move out raka we have sent this Quran down on a blessed night, Allah chose this night to reveal the Quran Laila to other was the night the incident of Accra took place on the next day. This is a special day from the beginning of history from the revelation of the Quran. This is the night that Allah azza wa jal chose, it is a Leila mo Baraka What does mu Baraka mean? Mu Baraka means it is blessing more Baraka means a small amount goes a long way. Baraka means to increase the utility of something. So,

00:15:41--> 00:16:23

one night has been increased to 83 years. What more Baraka Do you want one night will give you a lifetime of worship? And that night is only eight hours, and actually from after Isha. It's only six hours, six hours. That's all that it is. How can we trivialize those six hours they are more precious to us than any time of the year. So dear brothers and sisters, we're about to enter that phase and it is so blessed and it is so magnificent that our profit system linked our entire salvation to that one night in the famous Hadith and Sunnah. Anessa when the month of Ramadan began, our Prophet system stood up to give a sermon and he said, a blessed month has come to you. In it is

00:16:23--> 00:17:15

a night that is better than 1000 months out of all of the things of Ramadan. At the beginning of the month, he reminded them there is one night that is better than 1000 months. Then he said, listen to this, whoever is deprived of the blessings of that night has been deprived of all good if you cannot motivate yourself to do something extra on those nights that Allah He when can you motivate yourself a blood question? If you're not going to be able to motivate yourself to do something extra on these nights? few nights, five nights that are odd five candidates 2123 2527 29 that's all that it is. And if you do not have it in you to do something extra as much as you can. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:17:15--> 00:17:55

wa sallam said whoever is deprived man how Roma whoever deprives himself from those nights. How do Malhotra Kula all good has been deprived of him if you're not going to change in Ramadan. And if you're not going to sacrifice for Laila to other than what could you possibly sacrifice for? And that is why our iman our salvation is linked to doing something on later to further that's why our profit system linked the entire forgiveness of Ramadan, whoever fasted Ramadan, whoever stands in prayer and Ramadan. And then he said whoever stands in prayer on Laila to other all of his previous sins will be forgiven. Dear Brothers and Sisters, we don't know exactly when they look what it is,

00:17:55--> 00:18:37

we all know the controversies are prophets and some did not tell us out of a wisdom to him, Allah azza wa jal chose not to tell us he said, in an authentic hadith that I wanted to tell you that it will other but Allah subhanaw taala took that knowledge away. And perhaps that is better for you. This hadith isn't Behati he came out to tell us the exact night he knew it. And then Allah lifted that knowledge from him. Then he said, so whoever wants to find it, find it in one of the odd last nights of Ramadan, five candidates come on, how lazy can you possibly be? We have 365 days of the year five candidates, that's all that it is 2123 2527 29 And out of them 2325 27 are the highest

00:18:37--> 00:19:19

candidates and out of them 27 is the highest candidate Yes, but we do not know for certain what day is later to call what night is laters other so every one of these nights Dear brothers and sisters, that is a candidate for the other one of the Sahaba said Wallahi if Allah did not tell us, even the month of later to cover the blessings are so much it would be enough for us to pray to her every single night because one of the nights must be dated. How much more so when Allah has said one month how much more so when he has said the last 10 days how much more so when he has said the odd nights of the last 10 days. Allah has made it so easy for you show Allah that you want to get later to

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

unclouded show Allah that every one of these nights you're going to do something and insha Allah Who to Allah, Allah will see that sincerity and dedication and will bless us to be of those who prey on Laila to other May Allah subhana wa Tada bless me and you with and through the Quran. And May He make us of those whose verses they understand and applies halal and haram throughout our lifespan. Ask Allah's forgiveness you as well ask him for his love of food and the rock man.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

hamdulillah who I had it I had a summit Let me welcome you let me Akula who phoned Eduardo. So what should we do on

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

later to another, what are the main things to be done? Obviously, the greatest act of worship on the other is the salah. And that is why we pray extra on Laila to other and that is because Salah combines between all of the above that Salah has recorded so Allah has such the salah has the law of the Quran, Salah has dhikr sada has DUA and especially on Laila to cuddle, we should elongate our PA and we will be doing the arms as well here in the masjid and you're free to come here and if you're able to pray at home as well pray at home and if you're able to do more for sure at home do more kosher at home between home and the masjid you choose the one where your kosher is more for some

00:20:39--> 00:21:15

people they can attain better tranquility at home when they're alone. And for others they need to hear the Quran and being the ambience whichever one works for you. Whether you do it private or whether you do it in public. The goal is that your whole sure is there and even if you come to the masjid, the Masjid will be our taraweeh and they will have pm at night and there's plenty of other hours as well. So the number one deed that should be done is that of Salah, and in the Salah, we should elongate the search and the record and we should recite much Quran so this salah is a long set up and in the search we increase our do as we ask Allah subhana wa Tada from sincerity from our

00:21:15--> 00:21:56

hearts we ask Allah begging Allah azza wa jal knowing he can hear us knowing only He can give us what we want. We open our hearts to Allah and have a direct conversation in a secret voice and a small whispering and Allah hears that whispering we should have minimal your pain that Allah is Hearing and seeing and Allah can give us what we want. So the number one action is that of Salah number two that also between the Salah is that we do because we cannot just pray all eight hours or seven hours between the Salah we do vicar and we taste the speed and the tech lead and meet and we say is still far and we say the famous dua that our profits are some taught Isha Allahumma indica fu

00:21:56--> 00:22:40

one two hibel Alpha four Anna This is a powerful dua because I fu means to erase all of our sins. It is actually more powerful than Mo Farah macfeather is also powerful, but it means to cover the sins I feel means it's as if it never existed. So I flew to wipe the paper clean there is no trace left there's no markings as it's as if we never did the sin so we want this Ramadan to wipe our sins clean as if we never did them Allahumma indica Alpha One Two hibel alpha for our for Anna, that's the DUA that we make as well. On this night, we should do any good deed, especially feeding the hungry and giving charity so from now before those nights begin earmark, where am I going to give my

00:22:40--> 00:23:19

charity look at the charities you want. And then on those nights if you can physically go and give or these days online if you can give but no the charities are going to give to and then give something every single one of those nights. Can you imagine a charity that will give you the reward of 1000 months of continuous charity. So give charity on this night as well on this night of the deeds that are good to do and not a lot not a lot of people think about them is the cleansing of the heart internal look at your own heart. What diseases are there? jealousy, hatred? Do you have something in your heart against somebody cleanse it make it a pure heart make it a libsodium you

00:23:19--> 00:23:57

will be pure and Allah azza wa jal will bless you. Also on this night, Sen Rahim, it's a night to have connections with those family members that you caught off of the greatest of good deeds is to be connected with your family, and especially prepare for that read because on the day of readers, well, we want to be connected with our family, every single good deed that we do every single good deed and of course of the things that we do. We make dua for our mother, we make dua for the upcoming year we make dua that Allah Subhana Allah blesses us with the best in this upcoming year. And of the things that we need to make dua for is our iman and our taqwa and our guidance, dear

00:23:57--> 00:24:39

Muslims, our two hours should not only be about this dunya Yes, make dua of this dunya we want money, we all want good money and have that money. We want good family, we want peace. All of us want this but make sure along with the dua of this world, we make dua for the next world we make dua for guidance in hedaya we make dua for mum Farah, we make dua for the guidance of our children for the Eman of our children. This is the night to make dua for all of these things. It is the dua of other brothers and sisters. There is no more blessing time in the entire year than the upcoming time and Allah gives a custom while February while a URL in Azure the 10 nights while fidgety with a yard

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

in Azure. These are the 10 nights we are about to enter them. So brothers and sisters get psychologically prepared, get motivated, understand the significance of these days and then give it your utmost because your brothers and sisters statistically again, there are people sitting right here that are not going to be here next year. There are

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

People sitting right here statistically, that are in all likelihood not going to be here next year. For some of us. This might be our last Ramadan. For every one of us, there will be a Ramadan that will be our last strumble bond. So every time these 10 nights come we give it our best 110% Because the time will come when we won't have that opportunity to give it our best. So may Allah subhanaw taala make us of those who are standing and praying on leader to other
