​The Night of 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal ​This is a great gift and a treasure from Allah subhana wa ta'ala, and it is through Allah’s blessings and grace, that He has allowed us to do Dhikr in these nights. Due to the Barakah and blessings of Dhikr, alhamdulillah, we attain such Adheem, great nights in which we get the ability to perform Allah’s Dhikr. This is all Allah’s Fadhl and grace and blessings, otherwise a person would waste the important, great nights of his life. Life is passing by, but through the blessings of Dhikr – and we come for Dhikr anyway – Allah ta’ala also grants us such fantastic, blessed nights, nights that are so great that we cannot imagine nor enumerate their greatness. We can see that since we started Dhikr, Allah ta’ala has given us so many great nights, whether the night of Jumu’ah or so many other great nights. ​Now this night tonight is a night that nothing can compare to; nothing can compare to this night. Tonight is such a night that you can put aside all of your life’s nights of Laylat-ul-Qadr, and you can put all other nights to the side, for they cannot compare with this night. The fact is that due to this night, Laylat-ul-Qadr was created. We can only attain Laylat-ul-Qadr due to this night, and due to this night, we attain Ramadhan, and due to this night, we attain the Qur’an, because this is the night which, if it had not occurred, then nothing would have occurred. Why? Because in this night, Allah ta’ala sent such a great personality, such a great being, into this Dunya, a being who is the cause and the basis and the reason for the creation of this Universe. Due to him, there is illumination in this world, and Jannah was created and the Dunya was created, and the mountains were created - everything that you see in this world, everything that has been created, is due to the glory of Nabi-al-Karim sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Allah ta’ala created this Dunya and established this Dunya due to him. ​So, my brothers, on this night, the noble Prophet, the gracious Prophet, Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam came into this world – this is the night of the birth of the Holy Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. In other words, today is the night of the 12th of Rabi-ul-Awwal, and it is stated in Hadith – and the majority of scholars agree on this point – that this is the night on which the Holy Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was born. Hence this is a truly fantastic night on which Allah ta’ala has given us the Tawfeeq to perform His Dhikr and recite Durood Sharif. Consider for yourselves what a great reward Allah ta’ala has bestowed on us, alhamdulillah. So tonight, with a lot of love, even though you have a routine of worship in the night and you pray Tahajjud, make a special arrangement tonight to do good Ibadaat. And the best worship is that, before you go to sleep, be sure to recite Durood Sharif one thousand times, even if it is just sallallahu alayhi wasallam – that would be enough. Don’t sleep before doing this, and this will prove to be a great gift if Allah ta’ala gives us the Tawfeeq to recite this Durood Sharif tonight. So now recite Durood Sharif – Allahumma, salli ‘ala sayyidina Muhammadin wa ‘ala aale Muhammadain kama salayta ‘ala Ibrahima wa ‘ala aale Ibrahim. One other point is that in these nights of blessings, we can attain another great thing. What is that? It is that Allah ta’ala accepts Duas and supplications and requests on these nights. So think for yourselves – what great Duas will be accepted tonight! Those who are ill should present their requests and Duas to be cured, and all other needs should also be presented. Make Dua if you are distressed or trapped in sorrows or difficulties in some matter – and we are all in the Dunya, so somebody is always stuck or trapped in some situation. Tonight, this night is such that it is greater than all other nights, and hence Duas will be accepted on this night. So openly, keep reciting Durood Sharif and keep presenting your needs to Allah subhana wa ta'ala, because tonight, the Rahmahs descend, MashaAllah, since tonight is a great night, an extremely great night. May Allah ta’ala give to all of us in this night. And before sleeping, be sure to recite the following Durood Sharif: Sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam, Sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam, Sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam. Recite this at least one thousand times before sleeping, a minimum of one thousand times, and you can recite as much as you want on this night.
