Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah you Allah, Allah He was
a Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. We find ourselves here at the precipice at the evening, before April 5. And to properly observe the occasion of April 5, we thought that it would be beneficial to have a very short discussion insha Allah on the prophetic traditions related to our April 5 on the sending of EAD, if you will. And so in sha Allah, I'll try to keep this short and concise and to the point. But nonetheless, we've spent a whole month observing the worship of Allah subhanaw taala devotion and dedication to Allah following the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So I felt that it was only appropriate for us to be able to
also have a brief discussion about how we can engage in the coming day in accordance with the prophetic tradition in Chalabi ninja so like I said, I'll try to keep this concise and to the point, the very first thing kind of starting very naturally with the you know, the events of the day as though unfold. The first thing is that obviously, and this is not really one of the prophetic traditions, this is an obligation This is a fold. This is a funny, but I still feel a you know, obligated to mention it. And that is of course, we have to start the day varied with Salatin fauja Let's not forget about Salatin fauja under the varied we've had a very beautiful month, a very
productive month, a good month. Let's not forget about the future on the river eat.
The next thing is that on the day of eat specifically, there's a hadith of Makati, in which it is noted about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would eat something before Salatin aid on the day of their aid. So tomorrow morning, before you go for the AIDS prayer, you want to make sure that you eat something.
There's a hadith in Bukhari by Anna signo Malik are the Allahu taala on who in which he says that Ghana Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a lie Yahoo do Yeoman fitri akula Tama Ratan we are kulu hoonah Witter on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Sorry about that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would not go for the eighth prayer on there at the morning until he had at least eaten a few dates. So it's not necessary that we glutton ourselves and that we stuff ourselves and so on and so forth. But at the same time, it is important that we in keeping with the prophetic tradition, that we eat something and we consume something before we go for the eighth
prayer on a loo fitter. Okay, the next thing that is mentioned about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or from the prophetic traditions and practices is that
it's not specifically narrated about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but it is narrated about the companions of the Prophet somebody said I'm, I've delivered on my rhodiola hotel I know and the more of you my Malik it mentions, Kenyatta, Silla, Yamal fitri Avila and you have to do lol masala that Abdullah bin Ahmad radi Allahu taala Anima would take a bath would cleanse himself before going for the AIDS prayer. So for that reason, again that is something that is recommended. Another thing is to jungle right that to put on good garments and good clothing. It is narrated in multiple
you know, narrations, someone told that Allah Cindy Rama Allahu Allah, in his hatia Allah, Allah NASA he he mentioned early my gem Allah Yama ad can add a turn matakauri Ratan Bina home Welcome Young kilohana biggest sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that there's a narration that establishes the fact that the Sahaba would dress their best when they would go for their eighth prayer and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not prohibited did not stop that. So therefore dressing to whatever the best of one's capacity or capability, while of course still maintaining modesty is also a prophetic practice and a prophetically approved practice introduced
For the day of read, another thing that's very interesting from the son of the prophet to love the sun, which is also mentioned in the body, and that is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would go for their eat prayer, kind of food you eat any mint or even when you're a Jerome Interlaken, okra, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he would go for the prayer, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would go from one route. But then when you would be coming home from their eighth prayer, he would come home from a different route. And folks always ask, you know why that is? What exactly is the purpose behind that? Or what is the wisdom in doing so? So first
and foremost, it's a prophetic practice. It's a prophetic tradition. So we should do it and we should maintain it regardless. However, however, there are scholars who have discussed the wisdom within that, for instance, half a dozen hotjar Rahim Allah Allah the Great Hadith scholar, he talks about that one of the reasons for that is Lee The Hardy Shah Islami feed him when he is the hottie, the Cree Lackey, to basically demonstrate to propagate to show the beauty of Islam and the beauty of the Muslims and the remembrance of God by taking two different routes one going in one coming back. So that is also a Sunnah prophetic practice in a tradition that is the idea of kind of spreading you
know the beauty of a song and the beauty of their either their age vibes if you will. Um,
similarly, when going for their aids prayer, it is also mentioned that we should say the tech bit off that we should say that took me a lot we should be praising and glorifying Allah while going to the eighth prayer. Okay. And this is mentioned in numerous narrations about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he would the Quran mentions we need to compare Allah Allah Muhammad Allah school rune.
And so the glorification of Allah saying that Technorati is a very well established practice and tradition of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Someone told that the many of the scholars also referred to it as a Sumner Academy, that it is an emphasize son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to say the COVID ought to say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, on the way to the prayer. There's a Hadith of the Prophet sallahu song that says kind of a celestial loving cinema. Yakubu Yeoman fitri for you kabiru hedayati al masala Leah salata is aka salata, patata Kabira. The prophets, a lot of you, some would say that there could be rot while going for the eighth prayer out
loud. And he would continue to do so until they started their aids prayer. Once they started their eighth prayer. Then he concluded with the technique what what are the that we're not what do we exactly say? Well, there are numerous narrations it's narrated from Abdullah bin Massoud or the Allahu anhu. That he would say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Allah Allah will hand in another narration, he would say it thrice in the beginning. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illa Allah, one love about Allah who actually lack in hand. So this is mentioned in the masana for webinar be shaver, by Abdullah bin, Mr. O'Donnell, the
Lakota I know that he would say it this way. Another part of the tradition and the Sunnah of the IED is that when you arrive there at the place of aid, it is preferred to not offer any prayers before or after it, but that occasion is only in solely for their aid. And on that point, I should also clarify that fasting is prohibited on the day varied, we are not allowed to be fasting on that particular day. Now, there will be the salons of eat the prayer even there are a few different methods of doing so. All related back to the prophetic tradition. The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pray behind your email, however, he is leaving their eighth prayer.
After that there will be a hutzpah, there will be an address to the community that it is Sunnah to sit and listen for the hook but listen to the Hubba meaning it is something taught to us by the prophets, a lot of him and the companions would listen to the prophets a lot of them delivered the sermon. So that is what we will do. After the eat prayer is over. It's narrated and mentioned very beautifully about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam windier eat prayer was over
He would go and he would meet the people. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam would go and he would meet the people. So there's a very fascinating, beautiful narration about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after the eighth prayer was concluded, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he kind of walked into the middle of the crowd, right right at Rasul Lysa. lobby cinema, Ethan Sutter fermina, Larry daini, I thought I was done with Salah he went into the middle of the crowd,
for pharma for another illness, he stood there and he looked at the people gave a answer the phone will came first similar to him, he looked at them, how are they doing what's going on with them. So my yucky facade and and he stayed there in the crowd for some amount of time. So my gun safe, and then he departed from there. So it is from the son of the proselytism, to meet people afterwards, I understand. We're in a pandemic situation. So whatever is safe, whatever is appropriate, but the idea there is that he is an occasion for the community to meet with one another. And it isn't relayed about the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that they would actually
congratulate and greet one another, make do I for one another, by saying to Kabbalah local minimum income, that may Allah accept from us and May Allah accept from you, and they would make do I in this way for one another with one another. So these are, so these are some of the Sinan, some of the prophetic practices and the prophetic traditions for the day have varied. Remember, always that aid is a celebration of the completion of the obedience of Allah subhanaw taala. So we should never celebrate that by engaging in the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That just doesn't make any sense. So always be mindful of that. Remember to observe your prayers and your Salawat right,
your fudger though what are some other very sharp on the day of their EAD? Let's start the first day after Ramadan on the right foot. Make sure that it is a day of enjoyment and happiness and pleasure and celebration
for yourself and particularly for your families, and especially for your children. Many of our children growing up here, especially in the majority, non Muslim countries, oftentimes struggle with the issue of holidays and special occasions and things of that sort. So EAD and are a difficulty particularly right now, because that's the occasion he deign, the two are either either fifth or in there, he does not have or an occasion, our opportunity, they are an opportunity for us to be able to
give our children provide for our kids, that understanding of what the holidays are Muslims are and to be able to enjoy and celebrate the obedience of Allah subhanaw taala in line with the sooner the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Be kind, be generous, reach out to people, message people, see people talk to people, you know, and make sure that it's just a beautiful, joyous day and occasion. At the same time, obviously, you know, what's on the minds of a lot of people is a lot of the suffering that's going on all around the world, particularly of our Muslim brothers and sisters. There's particularly the desecration of most of the Aqsa, and all the tragedy
that's unfolding during Philistine and what I advise. And I've been talking to a lot of our, you know, LLM students and graduates who are moms and Habib's and their various communities. And I've been having this discussion with them, that it is possible for us to have two thoughts in our head at the same time, it is possible for us to have two thoughts in our head at the same time. And this in fact, in indeed is teaching us balance. Oftentimes, we become so spoiled and so extreme in our approach and reaction to things that when things are good, we celebrate and we act as if we have entered paradise, that there will be no difficulty ever again. We just completely let loose. Oh,
it's a celebration. That's it. No, we're not in Gemini yet. Right? And when something bad happens, then we act as if that's it, everything is doomed and everything is over as if we've been destined to the hellfire. No, no. But that is
The nature of the life of this world there will be good there will be bad, but typically young women who have been enough and we need to be able to celebrate
and appreciate the blessings of Allah, while at the same time have our brothers and sisters in our minds and in our hearts and continue to keep them in our door is after our prayers. We're lucky to allow them to show up. So with that, inshallah, go ahead and conclude. I want to keep it short and to the point eight mobarak to all of y'all. from everyone here I belong to Zack located on barakallahu li walakum wa salaamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
