Allah

00:02:57--> 00:03:38

hamdulillah All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala we praise Him and we seek His help and we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of our souls and the consequences of our actions. Indeed, whomever Allah guides, none can misguide. And whomever Allah chooses to misguide, none can guide him to the straight path. I bear witness and I testify that there is no deity worthy of worship other than a law, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the Messenger of Allah. Indeed, the best of all speech is the speech of Allah. And the best guidance is the guidance of the Prophet sallallahu I think he was sending them and the worst of all the affairs or innovations for every

00:03:38--> 00:04:22

innovation as misguidance and every misguidance leads to the fire of hell, as to what follows Allah subhana wa tada has reminded us to be conscious of him when he says in the Quran, you Hello Hina Armando topo la hapa to party while otamatone illa Anta Muslim one. Dear Muslims, do you know that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was always eager and excited to meet the angel gibreel he would be looking forward when God comes down. I shadow 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 God, that Oh god, why don't you come more often? Why don't you visit us more often? We want

00:04:22--> 00:04:59

you to see you more. And Allah then revealed in the Koran, a verse that we recite To this day, one man attended Zulu Ellerbee under 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 come. And God said, the prophets Assam said to God and Oh God, let me see you in your original form. So God said make dua to Allah I can't This is from Allah, his decision make drawn to Allah. And so the promises are made to other Allah allow me to see God in its original form. And so Allah gifted him that Allah gifted

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

To him that vision in one of the most amazing miracles that was given to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be in the presence of God and to see you buried 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 Djibouti, Djibouti and as Allah created him, generally when Jubilee would come, he would come in the form of a man, generally when God came down, he would not be in his original form. When the processor may do our Allah subhana wa tada granted him that day. When did he grant him that day, on the night of Israel Mirage, when the professor's

00:05:42--> 00:06:21

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, is that the Prophet system saw God in His original form. Allah says in the Quran lavadora amin iottie, Robby Hill Cobra, he saw of the most amazing Cobra Kabir of the most biggest miracles of Allah He saw.

00:06:22--> 00:07:07

And Allah azza wa jal References This vision, what was the vision, the profitsystem, seeing God in His original form. And in fact, jabril 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 uses sloughi mineral manner he Cthulhu sunon woman and us, Allah chooses Russell from the melodica and Russell from the from the mankind. So Allah chose from the manor iica the most best of them jabril and Allah chose from the rustle 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

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

124,000 from the beginning of time, up until our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu either he was send 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 sending them and then our prophets are some left this earth,

00:07:25--> 00:08:09

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, amen, amen. Amen. Amen. Was Abdul ma polyps gift to Abdullah the father of the prophets of Allah, why do you send them 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 prophets Assam she passed away a few years after the Prophet system. Can you imagine how we wish we could hear her stories in sha Allah

00:08:09--> 00:08:15

one day in genda? We hope we can ask her all the stories we want. After the death of the Prophet Sal is seldom

00:08:16--> 00:08:55

a worker and Omar rhodiola one home they said, you know, we should visit omega Amen. Like our profits are somewhat regularly lead with this call center to rhyme This is called fulfilling the ties of the dead. The professor 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 profitsystem so after the death of the process of Obamacare, Mr. said Let us go visit on May ailment like the profitsystem used to visit so the two senior most companions visited will meet a man when she saw them all the memories flooded back and she began crying and sobbing. Abubakar said yeah, oma, our

00:08:55--> 00:09:38

dear mother, we all miss the prophets of the law while he was setting them in sha Allah, he's in a better place now he's in filled those what it only amen say? She said well, Allah He I know he is in a better place. And of 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, God would come visit us that has now been cut off. We don't have that connection anymore. With the going away of the Prophet sallallahu either he was sending them there is no more why he coming down. There is no new Quran coming. We'll be excited when the revelation can we be excited when Jamil came with something new, she was crying

00:09:38--> 00:09:50

because that connection with gibreel had been cut off that connection with the way he had been cut off. This was how they would look forward to a new revelation that God would bring down. Dear Muslims.

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

Why am I talking about God? Because Allah has blessed every one of us with the opportunity

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

Unity to be in the presence of God.

00:10:03--> 00:10:54

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 that Jubilee visits us 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. China, Zuma aikatsu were roofie ha, 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 don't you

00:10:54--> 00:11:45

understand and realize, I am allowing God to come in I'm telling him and allow references to us. He literally reminds us all mankind, I am telling you, God is coming down. That's how special this night is. Tonight zulma equal to we're roofie. The room in 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 clothes, that he will 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 Father, why are you

00:11:45--> 00:12:27

dressing like this on later to wait for it to come? And he said Subhan Allah 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 when God sees me. Another of the top 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 best do our best because the angels see us and

00:12:27--> 00:13:11

they make dua for us when they see our a bother When the angels see us standing and fiam in such the into our This is on any night not just from Yvonne on any night when the angel see us they make us didn't fall for us. They ask Allah xojo 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 and to see us and see us and come and see us in such the 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 scour this entire earth. And we have the opportunity to be

00:13:11--> 00:13:18

standing and praying and asking Allah azza wa jal and to be witnessed by those angels, Laila to uncover one.

00:13:19--> 00:13:59

Further the phrasing of the Quran which will make you understand you will never understand our limited minds will never comprehend the magnificence that is Laila to other one. Allah says woman, 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 higher room in elfish. 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 water of you, my mother, that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looked at

00:13:59--> 00:14:41

the previous lifespans and he realized they live for many many centuries. And he said, Oh Allah, how can my oma compete with those people? My oma is 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 oma compete one day had a longer time and so Allah subhana wa tada revealed only for our oma he blessed us with Laila to 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

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

other almost did not have. This is a unique blessing given to our oma no previous oma was given it Laila Audrey Hiram min Alfie Shahar. This one night of worship will give us more than 83 years of continuous worship Subhanallah brothers and sisters, how stingy can we be

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

How miserly can we be? How can we possibly not be excited to wake wake up the night of later to others and to do extra or later to do the math every minute of later to each other is worth more than two and a half months of worship every minute? Can you imagine simply saying 10 times Subhana 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 the other is called a little other because other means magnificence other means significance, it is the most magnificent night and those who worship Allah on that night become magnificent. Those who worship Allah become other

00:15:42--> 00:16:24

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 Subhana. Allah tells the angels our father who shall live who shall die, who shall be given a child who shall increase the risk, 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 Zelma equal to what roofie have be ill near obey Him in Cooley amor, every affair that has been decreed min Cooley armor, everything that has been decreed the angels come down their tasks

00:16:24--> 00:17:09

have been assigned and what did our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam say nothing changes other than do nothing changes other other than drop. In other words, our drop has the impact has the possibility has the potential reality to change our culture? How can we not be begging a lot while our other is being decided while our other is being announced? How can we not be standing in prayer and begging Allah 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 ALLAH forgive our sins. Our draws on that night have the potential to affect the upcoming year how can we be asleep out of laziness and not be standing in

00:17:09--> 00:17:50

prayer? Our mother I should know the Allahu Allah says that our Prophet sallallahu I think he was sending him would never spend the whole night awake on any night of the year he would sleep certain portions and then at 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 fudger is the last 10 nights and on those 10 nights, our prof our mother Aisha says he would tighten his belt. We all know what that means you're going to get 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 everybody. Now

00:17:50--> 00:18:25

brothers and sisters, I know we have to be realistic. And I know many of us have jobs that we have to go to work at eight 9am The next morning, I understand many of us cannot spend the whole night away by the way those who can they should. And those who are able to take holidays. Well lucky 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 they should have tried to have. But if you can do it fine. If you cannot do that, I 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

00:18:25--> 00:19:05

time of Laila to cuddle. That is why Allah calls it Laila mubaraka. The Quran mentions later two other many times three times in Surah terracotta and two times outside of the surah five times Allah references later to color in Anza. Now Fei Li let him move out aka we have sent this Koran down on a blessing night, Allah chose this night to reveal the Quran. Laila to other words, 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 origin. This is the night that Allah azza wa jal chose, it is a Laila mubaraka. What does Movado come in mobile Raka means it is blessing. Well, Baraka means a small

00:19:05--> 00:19:47

amount goes a long way. Baraka means to increase the utility of something. So 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 do your brothers and sisters we're about to enter that phase. And it is so blessed and it is so magnificent that our professors and I'm linked our entire salvation to that one night in the famous editor in Swindon, and so, when the month of Ramadan began, our Prophet system

00:19:47--> 00:20:00

stood up to give a sermon and he said, a blessing month has come to you. In it is 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

00:20:00--> 00:20:50

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 went, can you motivate yourself? I mean, it's a blunt 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 wa sallam said, Whoever is deprived man how to whoever deprives himself from those nights how to Mel

00:20:50--> 00:21:29

higher akula 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 eemaan our salvation is linked to doing something on later to other that's why our Profit System linked the entire forgiveness of Ramadan, whoever fasts normal bond, whoever stands in prayer and Ramadan. And then he said who ever stands in prayer on Laila to other all of his previous sins will be forgiven? Dear brothers and sisters, we don't know exactly what later because we all know the controversies. Our Prophet system did not tell us about wisdom to him, Allah azza wa jal

00:21:29--> 00:22:13

chose not to tell us he said, in an authentic ad that I wanted to tell you data to other but Allah subhanho wa Taala took that knowledge away. And perhaps that is better for you this head it is and body 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. And 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 candidates and out of them 27 is the highest candidate Yes, but we do not know for certain what date is later to cover

00:22:13--> 00:22:52

what night is there is one other so every one of these nights dear brothers and sisters, that is a candidate for the other one of the Sahaba said will law heat if Allah did not tell us, even the month of labor 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 laid with other how much more so when Allah has said one month how much more so when he 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 another show Allah that every one of these nights you're going to do something and insha Allah

00:22:52--> 00:23:10

Allah Allah, Allah will see that sincerity and dedication and will bless us to be of those who prey on a lot of other men Allah subhanho wa Taala bless me and you with and through the Quran. And may He make us of those who is versus they understand and apply his head and head on throughout our lifespan ask Allah forgiveness you as well ask him for his love of food and the rock man

00:23:21--> 00:24:03

hamdu lillahi wa had a summit let me welcome you as well I'm Nicola Hakuna had wobbu So what should we do on Layla? 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 later to other and that is because Salah combines between all of the above that Salah has recorded so that has such the so that has stayed out of the Quran. So Allah has declared sada has do and especially on a little other, we should elongate our pm we will be doing pm 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 to

00:24:03--> 00:24:38

do more kosher at home between home and the masjid you choose the one where you're sure is more for some people they can attain better tranquility at home when they're alone. And for others they need to hear the Quran and be in the ambience whichever one works for you. Whether you do it private or do you do it in public, the goal is that your brochure 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 setup and

00:24:38--> 00:25:00

in the such that we increase our doors We ask Allah subhana wa tada from sincerity from our 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

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

in the mail your cane 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 surah we do Vicar and we taste the spear and the tech bit in the meat and we say is still far and we say the famous drop that our profits are some Tata Isha Allahumma indicar fu one two hibbeler for foreigner This is a powerful to our because I fu means to erase all of our sins. It is actually more powerful than Mo Farah Mo Farah is also powerful, but it means to cover the sins are four means it's as if it never existed. So I failed to

00:25:42--> 00:26:23

wipe the paper clean. There's no trace left, there's no markings as it's as if we never did the sin. So we want this from Oban to wipe our sins clean as if we never did them Allahumma inaka foun to hibel f1 for f1. That's the other 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 your mark, where am I going to give my 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 know the charities you're going to give to and then give something every single one of those nights. Can you imagine a charity that

00:26:23--> 00:27:04

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 up Saleem you will be pure. And Allah azzawajal will bless you. Also on this night. Sen Rahim, it's a night to have connections with those family members that you cut 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

00:27:04--> 00:27:44

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 do out for our other 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 do our four is our man and our Tacoma and our guidance dear Muslims, our doors should not only be about this dunya yes make do out of this dunya we want money, we all want good money and had our money. We want good family, we want peace. All of us want this but make sure along with the drama of this world we make to offer the next world we make do

00:27:44--> 00:28:26

offer guidance in hedaya. We make dua for Mo Farah, we make do our for the guidance of our children for the emaan of our children, this is the night to make dua for all of these things. It is the drop of other brothers and sisters, there is no more blessing time in the entire year than the upcoming time. And Allah gives us some wall surgery while I assure the 10 nights while surgery where they are 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 dear brothers and sisters, statistically, again, there are people sitting right

00:28:26--> 00:29:08

here that are not going to be here next year. There are 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 trauma bond. For every one of us. There will be a trauma bond 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 subhanho wa Taala make us of those who are standing and praying on later to other and whose daughter is accepted Allah in the dying for Aminu, allama letter Danica Domi them and Illa Fatah wa Hanneman Illa for Raja wala Dane and in la vita,
