When we look at the prophet (pbuh) and his relationship with Allah and our blessing and good fortune of being from the Ummah of Rasulullah (pbuh) There are two things that Rasulullah (pbuh) always does on our behalf.
He always advocates for Allah (swt) to lessen our burden and he always advocates for Allah (swt) to increase our blessing.
Imam Hasan al-Basri (rah) tells us about our Messenger (pbuh) anytime Allah gives him, the prophet (pbuh) thinks how does that translate into giving to the ummmah?
The prophet (Pbuh) wanted something for his Ummah. So Allah gave him Laylat-al-Qadr; Allah (swt) gave him Laylat-al-Qadr as a gift to the Prophet (pbu)’s ummah. The Night of Glory is better than a thousand months.
for some people, laylatul qadr is not even a thousand months. It’s thousands of months. For some people, the Tasbeeh of Ramadan is not even times a thousand. It’s times thousands up toward Allah (swt) decides to reward his servants with and that comes back to each and every single one of us calling out to Allah and Subhanallah you connect that …… better than a thousand months.
In these 10 nights there is one night; There is more in terms of value than a thousand months, which is 83.33 years. And Allah speaks about the night of decree is better than a thousand months. That’s Allah (swt) speaking about it.
The Prophet (pbuh) says search for the night of Qadr or the night of decree in one of the odd nights from among the last 10 nights of this month of Ramadan.
It is one of the best seasons that you can have. The primary aim is to achieve the forgiveness of Allah.
One might ask, well, which are more blessed; Is it the first 10 days of dhul hijjah or these ones? The first 10 days have the most value from all the days of the year, Right? In terms of a season, those are 10 days in a row. Here, It’s the night that we are being spoken about the last 10 nights.
Imagine, when we meet with Allah, We’re going to be presenting our deeds and it’s for ourselves and Allah is there.
The last 10 nights of Ramadan, Become conscious nof what you’re doing. What you’re saying. Do you read the Quran? Do you fulfill your five daily prayers? Start that this is the preparation of your vehicle for the main day of the race, Right? So my Salah needs to be in order. My dress needs to be in order. My recitation of the Quran needs to be in order. My relationships need to be in order.
Seek the forgiveness of Allah even prior to these 10 days.
There is a beautiful quality that Allah loves; when you forgive others, Allah will forgive you.
The last ten nights of Ramadan are filled with Barakah and opportunities to draw near to Allah . Within these final days, Muslims seek that one night that is better than a thousand months, Laylatul-Qadr.
Allah subḥānahu wa ta’āla (glorified and exalted be He) says in the Qur’an: The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. Peace it is until the emergence of dawn. [Qur’an: 97:3-5]
The blessed Laylatul Qadr can be found in any of the last 10 nights of Ramadan, which are the most blessed nights of the year. As such, we should increase our worship and devotion during this period.
Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, said:
I asked the Messenger of Allah: ‘O Messenger of Allah, if I know what night is the night of Qadr, what should I say during it?’ He said: ‘Say: O Allah, You are pardoning and You love to pardon, so pardon me.’ ”
(Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and Tirmidhi).
Let’s us learn and memorise the dua
The Hadith says whosoever does not ask Allah, Allah becomes upset with that person, Subhan Allah.
The prophet Muhammad sallallahu wasallam says Allah Almighty hears every dua, every prayer, and every supplication. He gives you whatever He Wills to give you as a result of the supplication and it’s never a loss because if you ask Allah for something and He knows it’s bad for you. He may give you something else that is good for you.
One of the beautiful ways of seeking from Allah is to say o Allah if this is good for me give it to me, if it is not good for me. Keep it away from me.
When you call out to Allah, You can’t just make dua all night and then sin all day or as soon as you ask Allah, you’re not conscious of the instructions of Allah.
Keep calling out to Allah. Don’t be selfish when you call out to Allah, call out for others as well; your family members, your friends Even your enemies, the others the entire ummah, Humanity at At large, call out for everyone. When you call out for others. The angels are saying oh Allah give this person the same as well.
What is siam? What is fasting? did the prophet (saw) say that whoever does not pray Taraweeh, you know with these many units and whoever does not finish the quran with these many times, Allah has no need for their fasting, no.
The prophet (saw) said whoever does not leave off, you know, false speech. Allah has no need for them to leave right, what’s the point of view leaving off your food and your drink.
Am I doing anything that would violate, that it would violate the fast, which would violate these blessed nights? Am I watching something that I should not be watching? Am I saying something I should not be saying? Am I doing something I should not be doing”?
what’s the best way to get laylatul qadr accepted? Don’t do anything that would cause laylatul qadr to be rejected. What’s going to purify me on the inside? What’s going to bring me closer to Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala?
