Granted us the ability, the opportunity to be

00:01:08 --> 00:01:09

able to witness

00:01:10 --> 00:01:10

the day of.

00:01:12 --> 00:01:14

And I wanted us

00:01:15 --> 00:01:16

to take a little bit time out here

00:01:16 --> 00:01:17

tonight,

00:01:18 --> 00:01:19

or this evening,

00:01:20 --> 00:01:23

right before the time of Iftar, which we'll

00:01:23 --> 00:01:26

talk more about the significance of this fast

00:01:26 --> 00:01:26

and

00:01:27 --> 00:01:29

something for us to focus on here.

00:01:30 --> 00:01:31

But I wanted us to take out a

00:01:31 --> 00:01:33

few moments to be able to really understand

00:01:33 --> 00:01:34

and appreciate exactly,

00:01:35 --> 00:01:38

you know, what opportunity Allah has granted us

00:01:38 --> 00:01:39

here.

00:01:39 --> 00:01:41

The significance of the day of Arafah,

00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

to understand how

00:01:44 --> 00:01:47

remarkable this day is, how profound this day

00:01:47 --> 00:01:47

is,

00:01:48 --> 00:01:51

how virtuous and blessed this occasion is,

00:01:52 --> 00:01:54

and what kind of history

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

has occurred on this particular day.

00:01:57 --> 00:01:59

So first and foremost,

00:02:00 --> 00:02:01

this day of Arafah,

00:02:01 --> 00:02:02

the prophet

00:02:03 --> 00:02:05

maybe the most significant thing about this particular

00:02:06 --> 00:02:06

day

00:02:06 --> 00:02:08

is that the prophet said,

00:02:11 --> 00:02:12

That

00:02:12 --> 00:02:14

the entirety of Hajj,

00:02:15 --> 00:02:17

the act of Hajj,

00:02:17 --> 00:02:19

right, which we know exactly what Hajj is.

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

Hajj is a 5th pillar of Islam. It

00:02:21 --> 00:02:23

is one of the obligations of our religion.

00:02:23 --> 00:02:24

It is

00:02:25 --> 00:02:26

the culmination

00:02:26 --> 00:02:28

of the mission of the prophet

00:02:30 --> 00:02:33

Hajj is an experience. It is a moment.

00:02:33 --> 00:02:34

It is a practice.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:40

That if a person goes and performs Hajj,

00:02:40 --> 00:02:42

they return back from Hajj.

00:02:43 --> 00:02:46

The prophet used this particular expression to describe

00:02:46 --> 00:02:49

it. That person will return back in the

00:02:49 --> 00:02:51

form or in the condition

00:02:52 --> 00:02:54

in which their mother gave birth to them.

00:02:55 --> 00:02:57

They'll basically return back anew,

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

completely free of any kind of sin

00:03:00 --> 00:03:03

and tarnish that they might have been carrying

00:03:03 --> 00:03:05

with them from over the years and the

00:03:05 --> 00:03:05

decades.

00:03:06 --> 00:03:08

So Hajj is so profound and so powerful

00:03:08 --> 00:03:09

and so beautiful.

00:03:10 --> 00:03:12

Right? It is the meeting place of the

00:03:12 --> 00:03:13

entire Ummah.

00:03:15 --> 00:03:16

And the prophet says

00:03:17 --> 00:03:18

that

00:03:19 --> 00:03:20

the day of Hajj,

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

the day that basically completes Hajj and fulfills

00:03:24 --> 00:03:25

the Hajj

00:03:29 --> 00:03:30

Hajj is

00:03:30 --> 00:03:31

Arafah.

00:03:31 --> 00:03:33

So that's this particular day.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:35

And that's how blessed this day is. The

00:03:35 --> 00:03:37

prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam,

00:03:38 --> 00:03:41

when he himself, the Quran how does the

00:03:41 --> 00:03:43

Quran tie in with the day of Arafah?

00:03:44 --> 00:03:45

It's important for us to understand.

00:03:46 --> 00:03:47

The prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, when he

00:03:47 --> 00:03:48

went for Hajj,

00:03:49 --> 00:03:51

and he was performing the Hajj there, the

00:03:51 --> 00:03:54

prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam informed us

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

that

00:03:56 --> 00:03:57

this particular

00:03:57 --> 00:03:59

verse was revealed upon me

00:04:00 --> 00:04:03

there in Arafat, on the day of Arafat,

00:04:04 --> 00:04:05

and that verse was

00:04:08 --> 00:04:11

Today, I have completed for you your religion.

00:04:14 --> 00:04:16

And I have fulfilled upon you

00:04:17 --> 00:04:18

my blessing, Allah says.

00:04:21 --> 00:04:22

And I have approved

00:04:23 --> 00:04:24

for you

00:04:25 --> 00:04:27

Islam as a way of

00:04:28 --> 00:04:30

life. So this particular verse of the Quran,

00:04:31 --> 00:04:34

which in many ways represents the completion

00:04:35 --> 00:04:37

of the mission of the prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:04:37 --> 00:04:39

wa sallam. It was revealed on the day

00:04:39 --> 00:04:40

of Arafah.

00:04:41 --> 00:04:43

Arafah, just like we talked about, it's it's

00:04:43 --> 00:04:45

both things. For the hujaj,

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

it is

00:04:48 --> 00:04:49

a day of new beginnings.

00:04:51 --> 00:04:53

But at the same time, for the prophet

00:04:53 --> 00:04:54

salallahu alayhi wa sallam, the day of Arafa

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55

was a day of completion.

00:04:57 --> 00:04:58

It was a day of fulfillment of the

00:04:58 --> 00:05:00

mission and the promise of Allah.

00:05:01 --> 00:05:03

The prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, therefore he

00:05:03 --> 00:05:04

says about

00:05:06 --> 00:05:07

Arafah,

00:05:07 --> 00:05:09

The best of the days is the day

00:05:09 --> 00:05:10

of Arafah.

00:05:11 --> 00:05:14

And the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam in

00:05:14 --> 00:05:14

another narration,

00:05:15 --> 00:05:16

he says that,

00:05:22 --> 00:05:24

That there is no day that is more

00:05:24 --> 00:05:26

virtuous in the sight of God than the

00:05:26 --> 00:05:27

day of Arafa.

00:05:35 --> 00:05:38

That on the day of Arafah, Allah Subhanahu

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

Wa Ta'ala,

00:05:39 --> 00:05:39

He

00:05:41 --> 00:05:44

sends His mercy down closer to humanity.

00:05:45 --> 00:05:47

And on this day,

00:05:47 --> 00:05:50

the people upon the earth who fast, and

00:05:50 --> 00:05:52

who make dua, and who worship.

00:05:53 --> 00:05:56

Allah brags about those people

00:05:56 --> 00:05:58

to the people of the heavens.

00:05:59 --> 00:06:01

That Allah tells the angels, look at my

00:06:01 --> 00:06:02

servants upon the earth.

00:06:07 --> 00:06:10

The people who are worshiping Allah on this

00:06:10 --> 00:06:12

day, particularly the people in Hajj.

00:06:12 --> 00:06:14

We probably all saw the pictures of the

00:06:14 --> 00:06:16

hujaj making du'a'a rafa.

00:06:17 --> 00:06:18

But nonetheless,

00:06:19 --> 00:06:21

the narration says that all the people that

00:06:21 --> 00:06:23

are worshiping Allah, calling out to Allah on

00:06:23 --> 00:06:24

the day of Arafah,

00:06:26 --> 00:06:28

Allah brags about them to the angels.

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

And Allah says, look at my servants.

00:06:32 --> 00:06:33

Right? Particularly

00:06:33 --> 00:06:34

on a day like today,

00:06:36 --> 00:06:38

it's not that big of a deal, but

00:06:38 --> 00:06:39

nonetheless, it's not nothing.

00:06:39 --> 00:06:41

Right? Everybody who fasted,

00:06:41 --> 00:06:44

we realized today that we're out of practice

00:06:44 --> 00:06:44

with those

00:06:45 --> 00:06:47

long, hot fasts of the summer.

00:06:47 --> 00:06:49

Right? March spoiled us a lot.

00:06:50 --> 00:06:52

Alright? March April spoiled us a little bit.

00:06:52 --> 00:06:54

We realized that today. We felt it today.

00:06:55 --> 00:06:58

But so that little bit of inconvenience, that

00:06:58 --> 00:07:00

little bit of sacrifice, it goes a very,

00:07:00 --> 00:07:01

very long way,

00:07:02 --> 00:07:04

Where it earns us the love and the

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05

pleasure of Allah.

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

And that's

00:07:07 --> 00:07:10

something very remarkable and beautiful on this day.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:11

Now

00:07:12 --> 00:07:12

specifically,

00:07:13 --> 00:07:14

on the day of Arafah,

00:07:15 --> 00:07:18

fasting is very important. Now obviously, we're talking

00:07:18 --> 00:07:20

about this at the end of the fast,

00:07:20 --> 00:07:22

but I just wanted to mention because the

00:07:22 --> 00:07:23

prophet mentioned something.

00:07:31 --> 00:07:33

That the fasting on the day of Arafah,

00:07:33 --> 00:07:35

I hope from the mercy of Allah, he

00:07:35 --> 00:07:36

says.

00:07:36 --> 00:07:38

I hope from the mercy of Allah. One

00:07:38 --> 00:07:41

very important thing whenever we are performing good

00:07:41 --> 00:07:44

deeds is to actually have hope

00:07:44 --> 00:07:46

in the reward from Allah

00:07:46 --> 00:07:49

And that's why even though whatever choice we

00:07:49 --> 00:07:50

made today is made,

00:07:50 --> 00:07:52

and now we're near the end of the

00:07:52 --> 00:07:53

fast.

00:07:53 --> 00:07:55

But I still wanted to mention this because

00:07:55 --> 00:07:57

in the scenario and in the case,

00:07:58 --> 00:08:00

in the instance that we were fasting,

00:08:00 --> 00:08:03

it's very important in these moments right now

00:08:03 --> 00:08:05

to be thinking about and reflecting on the

00:08:05 --> 00:08:08

reward from Allah. Well, what is the reward

00:08:08 --> 00:08:11

from Allah? The reward from Allah is that

00:08:11 --> 00:08:13

the prophet salallahu alaihi wa sallam says, all

00:08:13 --> 00:08:15

of our sins of the previous sin, the

00:08:15 --> 00:08:17

previous year, clean

00:08:18 --> 00:08:18

slate.

00:08:19 --> 00:08:19

By

00:08:20 --> 00:08:20

just

00:08:21 --> 00:08:22

fasting

00:08:22 --> 00:08:23

for

00:08:23 --> 00:08:24

1

00:08:25 --> 00:08:26

clean slate

00:08:27 --> 00:08:29

by just fasting for one day.

00:08:30 --> 00:08:31

And

00:08:32 --> 00:08:34

Allah, the the way the prophet words it

00:08:34 --> 00:08:36

is all the sins of the coming year

00:08:37 --> 00:08:39

will also be removed. But how can you

00:08:39 --> 00:08:42

be forgiven for something that hasn't happened yet?

00:08:43 --> 00:08:45

How can you be forgiven for something that

00:08:45 --> 00:08:46

hasn't occurred yet?

00:08:47 --> 00:08:49

Even though Allah can do anything, but the

00:08:49 --> 00:08:50

imam An Nawawi

00:08:51 --> 00:08:52

he

00:08:52 --> 00:08:55

explains, what that means is Allah will grant

00:08:55 --> 00:08:56

that person protection

00:08:58 --> 00:09:01

from falling into further sin for the coming

00:09:01 --> 00:09:02

year.

00:09:03 --> 00:09:05

Allah will grant that person protection.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:09

Allah will guide that person, protect that person,

00:09:10 --> 00:09:11

so that they do not fall into sin

00:09:12 --> 00:09:13

for the whole coming year.

00:09:15 --> 00:09:16

And the prophet

00:09:17 --> 00:09:18

he says,

00:09:24 --> 00:09:26

That there is no day on which Allah

00:09:26 --> 00:09:27

frees more people

00:09:28 --> 00:09:29

from the fire of *

00:09:30 --> 00:09:31

than the day of Arafah.

00:09:32 --> 00:09:34

And so this is the day of dua.

00:09:36 --> 00:09:37

This is the day of dua

00:09:38 --> 00:09:40

where we make dua, we ask Allah, we

00:09:40 --> 00:09:43

supplicate to God, God, we spread our hands

00:09:43 --> 00:09:46

before Allah, we beg and we plead to

00:09:46 --> 00:09:46

Allah.

00:09:47 --> 00:09:49

We ask whatever it is

00:09:50 --> 00:09:51

that we need.

00:09:51 --> 00:09:52

Whatever it

00:09:53 --> 00:09:55

is that is troubling us. Whatever it is

00:09:55 --> 00:09:57

that is weighing on our heart.

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

Whatever it is

00:10:00 --> 00:10:01

that has been

00:10:01 --> 00:10:03

causing great stress and distress.

00:10:05 --> 00:10:06

That this is the day where we can

00:10:06 --> 00:10:08

pour that all out to Allah

00:10:09 --> 00:10:12

And that's why the narration says, more people

00:10:13 --> 00:10:15

are freed from the hellfire

00:10:16 --> 00:10:19

today than any other day throughout the entire

00:10:21 --> 00:10:23

year. Because this is the day when many

00:10:23 --> 00:10:23

people,

00:10:24 --> 00:10:24

millions

00:10:25 --> 00:10:27

of our brothers and sisters,

00:10:28 --> 00:10:31

just, you know, however many hours before,

00:10:32 --> 00:10:34

were standing there in Arafa,

00:10:35 --> 00:10:37

and they were begging for forgiveness for themselves,

00:10:38 --> 00:10:40

for their families, for their friends, for their

00:10:40 --> 00:10:41

communities, for the hulunlah.

00:10:43 --> 00:10:45

And then all the fasting people

00:10:46 --> 00:10:47

all throughout the world,

00:10:47 --> 00:10:49

duas are accepted on the day of Arafa.

00:10:50 --> 00:10:52

On the day of Arafa, duas are accepted.

00:10:53 --> 00:10:54

The fasting person,

00:10:55 --> 00:10:56

their duas are accepted.

00:10:58 --> 00:11:02

When the person sits down and is about

00:11:02 --> 00:11:03

to break their fast in the moments,

00:11:04 --> 00:11:07

few moments before the opening of the fast,

00:11:07 --> 00:11:08

duas are accepted.

00:11:09 --> 00:11:11

So think about all the factors that are

00:11:11 --> 00:11:14

combining here today, right now, in this very

00:11:14 --> 00:11:15

moment.

00:11:15 --> 00:11:18

The day of Arafah, fasting, the time of

00:11:18 --> 00:11:19

Iftar.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:22

All of that

00:11:23 --> 00:11:26

is creating such a remarkable opportunity

00:11:27 --> 00:11:28

for duas to be accepted.

00:11:30 --> 00:11:31

And

00:11:31 --> 00:11:34

so the primary thing the prophet

00:11:35 --> 00:11:36

taught us,

00:11:37 --> 00:11:39

now we can ask for anything, and we

00:11:39 --> 00:11:40

should ask for

00:11:42 --> 00:11:44

everything. But a little reminder to me,

00:11:45 --> 00:11:46

and all of you all,

00:11:47 --> 00:11:49

is that as human beings, as people,

00:11:50 --> 00:11:51

we can sometimes

00:11:54 --> 00:11:54

become so

00:11:55 --> 00:11:56

consumed

00:11:56 --> 00:11:59

by something that is really troubling us or

00:11:59 --> 00:12:01

something that we desperately need.

00:12:02 --> 00:12:04

That we need a little healthy reminder

00:12:05 --> 00:12:06

that, yes,

00:12:06 --> 00:12:10

ask for whatever, ask for anything, ask for

00:12:10 --> 00:12:10

everything.

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

But a little healthy reminder from the prophet

00:12:14 --> 00:12:15

to all of us

00:12:16 --> 00:12:19

that the thing that we are most desperately

00:12:19 --> 00:12:20

in need of

00:12:22 --> 00:12:23

more than anything

00:12:24 --> 00:12:26

else, is the forgiveness of Allah.

00:12:29 --> 00:12:30

And I forget that

00:12:31 --> 00:12:32

because I'm a human being.

00:12:33 --> 00:12:35

And so I become so

00:12:35 --> 00:12:38

overwhelmed and inundated and consumed

00:12:40 --> 00:12:41

by my own consumption.

00:12:42 --> 00:12:45

I become so consumed by my immediate worldly

00:12:45 --> 00:12:46

needs.

00:12:47 --> 00:12:49

But it hurts here, and I'm hungry,

00:12:50 --> 00:12:51

and my pocket's empty.

00:12:53 --> 00:12:55

Right? I become so consumed by this. Not

00:12:55 --> 00:12:56

that these are bad things. Of course, we

00:12:56 --> 00:12:59

should be making dua for these things. But

00:12:59 --> 00:13:01

I do become very overwhelmed by all these

00:13:01 --> 00:13:01

things.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:05

The pain, and the money, and the loss,

00:13:05 --> 00:13:06

and the need, and the want.

00:13:07 --> 00:13:09

Right? I become very overwhelmed by all of

00:13:09 --> 00:13:09

it.

00:13:10 --> 00:13:11

And so I'm sitting there with my long

00:13:11 --> 00:13:14

dua list, and God forbid

00:13:15 --> 00:13:16

God forbid

00:13:17 --> 00:13:19

that whole dua list,

00:13:20 --> 00:13:22

it didn't say forgiveness on there anywhere.

00:13:23 --> 00:13:25

It didn't say Allah's mercy anywhere.

00:13:26 --> 00:13:28

He didn't say jannah.

00:13:29 --> 00:13:31

He didn't say protection from hellfire anywhere.

00:13:32 --> 00:13:34

That would be a tragedy. It'd be a

00:13:34 --> 00:13:35

travesty.

00:13:36 --> 00:13:37

And so on this day,

00:13:38 --> 00:13:40

more than anything else, we ask Allah for

00:13:40 --> 00:13:40

his forgiveness

00:13:41 --> 00:13:43

and think and then now,

00:13:44 --> 00:13:46

billions of Muslims around the world around the

00:13:46 --> 00:13:48

world begging and pleading,

00:13:48 --> 00:13:49

crying,

00:13:50 --> 00:13:51

fasting,

00:13:51 --> 00:13:52

thirsty, hungry,

00:13:53 --> 00:13:54

tired, exhausted.

00:13:55 --> 00:13:57

And then making du'a for forgiveness

00:13:58 --> 00:13:59

and think about,

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

inshaAllah.

00:14:01 --> 00:14:02

May Allah accept all of our prayers.

00:14:03 --> 00:14:05

But the billions of people being freed from

00:14:05 --> 00:14:07

the hellfire today. May Allah make us amongst

00:14:07 --> 00:14:08

them.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:10

And so that's the significance

00:14:11 --> 00:14:12

of the day of Arafah.

00:14:13 --> 00:14:14

Now

00:14:15 --> 00:14:16

before we

00:14:17 --> 00:14:19

kind of move towards,

00:14:20 --> 00:14:23

the time where we'll make some dua, we'll

00:14:23 --> 00:14:26

spend a little time in dua and supplication,

00:14:26 --> 00:14:28

There were a few things that I wanted

00:14:28 --> 00:14:30

to also highlight about Arafa.

00:14:33 --> 00:14:35

In that, you know, just historically

00:14:36 --> 00:14:38

and in terms of the

00:14:38 --> 00:14:40

principles of our deen and our religion, our

00:14:41 --> 00:14:42

what we call.

00:14:42 --> 00:14:43

Right?

00:14:44 --> 00:14:46

I do think that it's important that we

00:14:46 --> 00:14:47

talk about a couple of things.

00:14:47 --> 00:14:48

Number 1,

00:14:49 --> 00:14:50

that

00:14:52 --> 00:14:53

the day of Arafa

00:14:55 --> 00:14:57

is also the day and the occasion

00:14:59 --> 00:15:02

of what is maybe the most important

00:15:03 --> 00:15:04

comprehensive

00:15:06 --> 00:15:07

address

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

of the prophet

00:15:09 --> 00:15:10

to his ummah.

00:15:12 --> 00:15:14

And if it's the most remarkable and most

00:15:14 --> 00:15:16

important address of

00:15:19 --> 00:15:20

Muhammad to his

00:15:21 --> 00:15:22

then that means it is the most remarkable

00:15:23 --> 00:15:24

address any human being has ever delivered.

00:15:26 --> 00:15:29

This might just be the most important and

00:15:29 --> 00:15:29

profound

00:15:31 --> 00:15:31

speech

00:15:32 --> 00:15:34

that any human being has ever given.

00:15:36 --> 00:15:36

And that was

00:15:39 --> 00:15:42

The sermon of the farewell pilgrimage of the

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

Prophet

00:15:45 --> 00:15:46

And on this day, the Prophet

00:15:48 --> 00:15:49

delivered this address.

00:15:51 --> 00:15:53

And in many ways it was again foundational,

00:15:54 --> 00:15:55

but it was also

00:15:57 --> 00:15:58

completing

00:15:59 --> 00:16:01

his message and his mission.

00:16:02 --> 00:16:04

And we'll talk about it here in just

00:16:04 --> 00:16:06

a few moments about what he said at

00:16:06 --> 00:16:08

the end that allows us to understand that

00:16:08 --> 00:16:10

he was completing his mission,

00:16:12 --> 00:16:14

and he was preparing for his departure,

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

and he was bidding farewell to his ummah

00:16:17 --> 00:16:18

on this particular day.

00:16:19 --> 00:16:22

But the prophet salallahu alaihi wasalam delivered this

00:16:22 --> 00:16:23

Khudba.

00:16:24 --> 00:16:25

Maybe we've seen posters

00:16:27 --> 00:16:30

and graphics and things like that where you'll

00:16:30 --> 00:16:31

have the whole Khudba written down.

00:16:33 --> 00:16:34

And so if you look at that,

00:16:35 --> 00:16:37

it it is of decent

00:16:37 --> 00:16:37

length,

00:16:39 --> 00:16:41

but at the same time, it's not,

00:16:42 --> 00:16:44

like, pages and pages long.

00:16:45 --> 00:16:47

It fits onto 1,

00:16:47 --> 00:16:49

you know, poster,

00:16:50 --> 00:16:52

maybe a couple of pages,

00:16:52 --> 00:16:54

but that's the entirety of it.

00:16:55 --> 00:16:57

But what he said on that day by

00:16:57 --> 00:16:59

the way, number 1, it should be noted,

00:16:59 --> 00:17:02

that is the longest the prophet

00:17:02 --> 00:17:04

ever gave in his entire life.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:07

That is the longest khutbah he ever gave.

00:17:08 --> 00:17:11

Which was which would maybe maximum fill up

00:17:11 --> 00:17:11

2 pages.

00:17:12 --> 00:17:13

That's it.

00:17:13 --> 00:17:16

That was as longest chutba ever.

00:17:17 --> 00:17:18

Because the prophet

00:17:19 --> 00:17:20

had a particular gift.

00:17:23 --> 00:17:25

He was granted the gift of comprehensive

00:17:25 --> 00:17:26

speech.

00:17:26 --> 00:17:28

He could say a lot

00:17:28 --> 00:17:29

in very little.

00:17:32 --> 00:17:32

And the prophet

00:17:33 --> 00:17:35

while this was the lengthiest speech he ever

00:17:35 --> 00:17:37

gave, but still it wasn't that lengthy.

00:17:38 --> 00:17:41

It's so profound and so rich in meaning,

00:17:42 --> 00:17:44

that entire books have been written on the

00:17:44 --> 00:17:46

meaning of that speech.

00:17:48 --> 00:17:49

Entire books.

00:17:49 --> 00:17:51

There's one particular text I have.

00:17:52 --> 00:17:53

A 180

00:17:53 --> 00:17:53

pages

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

were written

00:17:56 --> 00:17:57

explaining

00:17:58 --> 00:18:00

the meaning of his speech on that day.

00:18:01 --> 00:18:01

So

00:18:02 --> 00:18:03

very profound.

00:18:03 --> 00:18:04

So obviously,

00:18:04 --> 00:18:06

we can't get into all of it here.

00:18:08 --> 00:18:10

I like to just leave people sometimes with

00:18:10 --> 00:18:11

a little bit of a reference where you

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

can go into more detail.

00:18:14 --> 00:18:15

If you

00:18:15 --> 00:18:17

visit the Qalam podcast,

00:18:18 --> 00:18:20

we have a podcast series on there called

00:18:20 --> 00:18:21

the Sira podcast.

00:18:24 --> 00:18:26

Unfortunately, you'll be subjected to more of my

00:18:26 --> 00:18:27

voice. But

00:18:27 --> 00:18:29

in the Sira podcast,

00:18:30 --> 00:18:31

there are 3

00:18:33 --> 00:18:34

sessions. 3 hours

00:18:35 --> 00:18:37

where we went through the khutba line by

00:18:37 --> 00:18:39

line and discussed the meaning of it. And

00:18:39 --> 00:18:41

even that 3 hours, I'll be very honest

00:18:41 --> 00:18:42

with you, was a summary.

00:18:43 --> 00:18:44

But still,

00:18:45 --> 00:18:46

even the summary of it

00:18:48 --> 00:18:50

was covered in 3 hours. So that's somewhere

00:18:50 --> 00:18:52

where you can basically go and kind of

00:18:52 --> 00:18:54

listen to at your own leisure.

00:18:55 --> 00:18:57

If somebody would like to explore the khutbah

00:18:58 --> 00:19:00

of Hajjatul Wida' in more depth and more

00:19:00 --> 00:19:01

detail. Alright?

00:19:02 --> 00:19:04

But I wanted to highlight a few lessons

00:19:04 --> 00:19:06

that the prophet salallahu alaihi wa sallam imparted

00:19:06 --> 00:19:07

to us

00:19:08 --> 00:19:11

on the day of Arafah, during his Hajj.

00:19:11 --> 00:19:13

Some things for us to reflect upon.

00:19:14 --> 00:19:14

Number 1,

00:19:16 --> 00:19:18

the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam said to us

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

on that day,

00:19:21 --> 00:19:22

and this is something that,

00:19:23 --> 00:19:25

you know, obviously, it needed to be mentioned

00:19:25 --> 00:19:27

and it needed to be talked about.

00:19:27 --> 00:19:28

I was

00:19:28 --> 00:19:30

hoping to talk about it here.

00:19:31 --> 00:19:33

On that day, the prophet salallahu alaihi wasalam

00:19:33 --> 00:19:34

engaged in a very fascinating

00:19:36 --> 00:19:38

dialogue and exchange with

00:19:38 --> 00:19:39

the ummah.

00:19:40 --> 00:19:41

There were over a 100000

00:19:43 --> 00:19:45

sahabah performing hajj with the Prophet salallahu alaihi

00:19:45 --> 00:19:45

wa sallam.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:49

And he started asking them questions and going

00:19:49 --> 00:19:51

back and forth with them. Very interesting.

00:19:52 --> 00:19:53

He says, first of all,

00:19:56 --> 00:19:58

What month is this?

00:20:00 --> 00:20:02

What day is this?

00:20:05 --> 00:20:06

And what

00:20:07 --> 00:20:08

place is this?

00:20:09 --> 00:20:10

Now obviously,

00:20:11 --> 00:20:13

the prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam was not asking

00:20:13 --> 00:20:14

them about,

00:20:15 --> 00:20:17

I forgot what the date is.

00:20:18 --> 00:20:20

Where he was asking them, oh, who didn't

00:20:20 --> 00:20:23

know? They're performing Hajj. It's Arafa.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:26

Everybody knew it's the 9th day of Dhul

00:20:26 --> 00:20:27

Hijjah.

00:20:28 --> 00:20:29

Everybody knew.

00:20:30 --> 00:20:32

The prophet was not asking them some frivolous

00:20:32 --> 00:20:33

question like what day of the week is

00:20:33 --> 00:20:34

it?

00:20:34 --> 00:20:37

What relevance and significance does that have?

00:20:39 --> 00:20:40

But the prophet

00:20:40 --> 00:20:42

they understood. He was asking them,

00:20:44 --> 00:20:47

what is the significance of this month? What

00:20:47 --> 00:20:49

is the significance of this day? And what

00:20:49 --> 00:20:50

and, of course, they knew where they were.

00:20:50 --> 00:20:53

They didn't just end up there by accident.

00:20:53 --> 00:20:55

How do a 100,000 people show up somewhere

00:20:55 --> 00:20:56

by accident?

00:20:56 --> 00:20:58

Of course not. They knew exactly where they

00:20:58 --> 00:20:59

were.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:02

Is right there.

00:21:04 --> 00:21:05

So they, of course, knew where they were,

00:21:05 --> 00:21:07

but they understood the prophet salallahu alaihi wasalam

00:21:07 --> 00:21:10

was asking them, what is the significance of

00:21:10 --> 00:21:13

this place? And they all responded and replied

00:21:14 --> 00:21:15

in one voice.

00:21:25 --> 00:21:28

That they said, this is a sacred month,

00:21:29 --> 00:21:30

this is a sacred

00:21:30 --> 00:21:31

day,

00:21:31 --> 00:21:33

and this is a sacred place.

00:21:36 --> 00:21:37

And what the prophet salallahu alaihi wasalam was

00:21:37 --> 00:21:39

trying to do was create

00:21:50 --> 00:21:52

Like to understand what that means. Like imagine

00:21:52 --> 00:21:53

being

00:21:56 --> 00:21:58

in Makkar or Madinah on 20 7th night

00:21:58 --> 00:21:59

of Ramadan.

00:22:00 --> 00:22:01

Imagine.

00:22:02 --> 00:22:04

The Prophet was saying, Well this isn't that

00:22:04 --> 00:22:05

different.

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

This day

00:22:08 --> 00:22:09

is also very very sacred.

00:22:10 --> 00:22:12

Now here's the implication of that.

00:22:12 --> 00:22:15

If it was a 27th night of Ramadan

00:22:15 --> 00:22:16

and you were in Makar Madinah,

00:22:17 --> 00:22:19

can you imagine? Can you even fathom? Can

00:22:19 --> 00:22:21

you comprehend committing a sin?

00:22:22 --> 00:22:23

Would you?

00:22:24 --> 00:22:26

Like deliberately commit a sin?

00:22:27 --> 00:22:27

Absolutely

00:22:29 --> 00:22:32

not. It's terrifying. It's horrifying to even think

00:22:32 --> 00:22:33

about it.

00:22:34 --> 00:22:36

Well, the prophet salallahu alaihi wasalam was also

00:22:36 --> 00:22:37

saying

00:22:38 --> 00:22:41

that y'all are here in Hajj wearing a

00:22:41 --> 00:22:41

haram

00:22:43 --> 00:22:44

in front of the Prophet

00:22:46 --> 00:22:47

performing Hajj.

00:22:47 --> 00:22:49

Would you ever commit a sin? Would you

00:22:49 --> 00:22:51

ever violate this moment? And they said, no.

00:22:51 --> 00:22:52

No. No.

00:22:53 --> 00:22:56

No. Well, the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam then

00:22:56 --> 00:22:56

he said

00:22:58 --> 00:22:58

that

00:23:09 --> 00:23:12

The prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, then

00:23:12 --> 00:23:12

remember

00:23:14 --> 00:23:15

that your

00:23:16 --> 00:23:16

your lives,

00:23:17 --> 00:23:18

your blood,

00:23:19 --> 00:23:20

your lives,

00:23:21 --> 00:23:23

and your property, your wealth

00:23:24 --> 00:23:26

is also sacred.

00:23:28 --> 00:23:31

And how you can't even imagine violating this

00:23:31 --> 00:23:32

moment?

00:23:34 --> 00:23:37

That the violating the life

00:23:37 --> 00:23:38

and the property

00:23:39 --> 00:23:40

of a believer

00:23:41 --> 00:23:44

is even more horrifying than the idea of

00:23:44 --> 00:23:46

committing a violation right now.

00:23:47 --> 00:23:49

If you're wearing ihram, standing in Arafat,

00:23:50 --> 00:23:51

in front of the Prophet

00:23:52 --> 00:23:55

Think about how horrifying it is to commit

00:23:55 --> 00:23:56

a sin there. The Prophet

00:23:57 --> 00:23:59

said, Violating the life

00:23:59 --> 00:24:02

and the property of a single Muslim

00:24:03 --> 00:24:05

is more horrifying than even that.

00:24:07 --> 00:24:09

And so the prophet salallahu alaihi wasalam on

00:24:09 --> 00:24:11

that particular day, one of the big lessons

00:24:11 --> 00:24:13

that he imparted was about the sanctity of

00:24:13 --> 00:24:14

life.

00:24:15 --> 00:24:18

I talk about this very specifically amongst all

00:24:18 --> 00:24:19

the other

00:24:19 --> 00:24:21

lessons that we could talk about here

00:24:22 --> 00:24:22

because

00:24:23 --> 00:24:24

we once

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

again

00:24:27 --> 00:24:28

cross another date

00:24:29 --> 00:24:30

and another occasion

00:24:30 --> 00:24:31

off of our calendars

00:24:33 --> 00:24:35

and the massacre

00:24:36 --> 00:24:38

and the genocide of our brothers and sisters

00:24:38 --> 00:24:40

in Gaza still continues.

00:24:42 --> 00:24:44

How horrific of an idea it is

00:24:45 --> 00:24:46

that we've

00:24:47 --> 00:24:49

gone through so many,

00:24:50 --> 00:24:51

like, dates on the calendar.

00:24:54 --> 00:24:55

So many

00:24:57 --> 00:24:59

that we have gone through

00:24:59 --> 00:25:00

Muharram,

00:25:01 --> 00:25:01

Ashura,

00:25:04 --> 00:25:05

the beginning and the end of Ramadan, and

00:25:05 --> 00:25:06

the Eid.

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

Now here we are,

00:25:11 --> 00:25:12

Hajj,

00:25:13 --> 00:25:15

and about to do another Eid,

00:25:16 --> 00:25:18

and nothing has

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

changed.

00:25:20 --> 00:25:21

It still continues.

00:25:21 --> 00:25:22

It hasn't stopped.

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

And so

00:25:26 --> 00:25:28

I connect this back to the earlier point

00:25:28 --> 00:25:30

that we met that we talked about,

00:25:30 --> 00:25:32

and that is the power and the significance

00:25:33 --> 00:25:33

of this day.

00:25:34 --> 00:25:35

This is the day of duas.

00:25:36 --> 00:25:38

This is the day that duas are answered.

00:25:40 --> 00:25:40

That

00:25:41 --> 00:25:43

we need to be making dua and we

00:25:43 --> 00:25:46

will be making dua on this day once

00:25:46 --> 00:25:47

again.

00:25:48 --> 00:25:49

But with full conviction,

00:25:50 --> 00:25:52

with no doubt in our minds or in

00:25:52 --> 00:25:54

our hearts that Allah will answer.

00:25:57 --> 00:25:59

But the prophet on this day, he talked

00:25:59 --> 00:26:01

about the sanctity of life.

00:26:02 --> 00:26:04

How sacred life is.

00:26:06 --> 00:26:08

And this is a lesson. Right? Somebody might

00:26:08 --> 00:26:11

think that why would he, in his most

00:26:11 --> 00:26:14

important address, talk about something so obvious as,

00:26:14 --> 00:26:16

oh yeah. Murder is bad.

00:26:17 --> 00:26:18

Well, look around the world today. We just

00:26:18 --> 00:26:20

talked about the example of our own brothers

00:26:20 --> 00:26:21

and sisters in.

00:26:22 --> 00:26:23

And look at

00:26:24 --> 00:26:24

just,

00:26:25 --> 00:26:27

you know, our recent history as humanity.

00:26:30 --> 00:26:33

We have taken all the gifts that Allah

00:26:33 --> 00:26:34

gave us.

00:26:34 --> 00:26:35

The intelligence,

00:26:37 --> 00:26:37

the ability,

00:26:38 --> 00:26:39

the resources,

00:26:40 --> 00:26:42

all of it. We took all of it

00:26:42 --> 00:26:43

and we poured it into

00:26:45 --> 00:26:47

a singular effort of becoming

00:26:47 --> 00:26:50

more efficient at killing human beings.

00:26:52 --> 00:26:54

That is our big achievement as humanity

00:26:55 --> 00:26:55

today.

00:26:56 --> 00:26:58

That we're good at destroying

00:26:59 --> 00:26:59

people.

00:27:01 --> 00:27:02

And so think about this lesson

00:27:03 --> 00:27:05

of the prophet salallahu alaihi wa sallam. This

00:27:05 --> 00:27:06

reminder from him.

00:27:07 --> 00:27:10

And he reminded us of this, that be

00:27:10 --> 00:27:10

mindful

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

of the sanctity of life.

00:27:14 --> 00:27:14

And

00:27:15 --> 00:27:17

as we just mentioned, once again,

00:27:18 --> 00:27:20

particularly for us,

00:27:20 --> 00:27:22

this is a very important reminder.

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

That if I had maybe become a little

00:27:26 --> 00:27:26

less

00:27:28 --> 00:27:30

kind of tuned in and dialed in

00:27:30 --> 00:27:32

into what's happening to my brother and sisters,

00:27:32 --> 00:27:33

then this is a reminder

00:27:34 --> 00:27:35

that I need to reconnect.

00:27:37 --> 00:27:38

I do not have the luxury.

00:27:38 --> 00:27:40

I do not have the ability.

00:27:40 --> 00:27:42

It is a crime.

00:27:43 --> 00:27:44

It is criminal

00:27:45 --> 00:27:47

for me to become distant and unaware and

00:27:47 --> 00:27:49

disconnected from what's happening to my brothers and

00:27:49 --> 00:27:50

sisters.

00:27:51 --> 00:27:52

And if some of us have been carrying

00:27:52 --> 00:27:54

this burden on our heart,

00:27:55 --> 00:27:57

and it feels very heavy, and it continues

00:27:57 --> 00:27:59

to be very heavy, then this is a

00:27:59 --> 00:28:00

reminder from the prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:28:00 --> 00:28:03

that we are that then then say, Alhamdulillah.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:07

Because in this particular moment, that should be

00:28:07 --> 00:28:08

the condition of a believer

00:28:09 --> 00:28:10

that they are concerned,

00:28:11 --> 00:28:13

that they are distressed

00:28:13 --> 00:28:15

about what's happening to the ummah of the

00:28:15 --> 00:28:16

Prophet salallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:28:18 --> 00:28:19

On this

00:28:20 --> 00:28:21

particular day,

00:28:22 --> 00:28:23

the Prophet

00:28:26 --> 00:28:26

he made

00:28:27 --> 00:28:29

such an emphatic dua.

00:28:30 --> 00:28:31

And I wanted to

00:28:32 --> 00:28:34

kind of conclude on this as we go

00:28:34 --> 00:28:35

into the dua ourselves.

00:28:36 --> 00:28:37

The prophet

00:28:37 --> 00:28:39

made such emphatic dua.

00:28:40 --> 00:28:40

There's

00:28:42 --> 00:28:42

a narration

00:28:43 --> 00:28:45

in which the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:28:45 --> 00:28:47

says that the best dua is a day

00:28:47 --> 00:28:50

is the dua of the day of Arafah.

00:28:51 --> 00:28:53

And the most blessed thing that I have

00:28:53 --> 00:28:55

said today, the prophet says that he has

00:28:55 --> 00:28:56

said today,

00:28:56 --> 00:28:59

and that all the prophets before him said,

00:29:12 --> 00:29:15

That there's no one worthy of worship except

00:29:15 --> 00:29:15

for Allah.

00:29:17 --> 00:29:17

And,

00:29:18 --> 00:29:18

he alone

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

is worthy of our worship and he has

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

no partners.

00:29:23 --> 00:29:24

And

00:29:24 --> 00:29:26

to him belongs everything and to him belongs

00:29:26 --> 00:29:29

the ultimate praise, And he is capable over

00:29:29 --> 00:29:30

everything.

00:29:31 --> 00:29:32

And

00:29:32 --> 00:29:34

the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam

00:29:36 --> 00:29:38

says that prophet kept making this dua

00:29:38 --> 00:29:39

on the day of Arafah.

00:29:45 --> 00:29:48

Oh Allah, all praise belongs to you

00:29:48 --> 00:29:50

as we are saying and even better than

00:29:50 --> 00:29:51

the praise that we are saying.

00:29:58 --> 00:30:01

Oh, Allah to you is dedicated all my

00:30:01 --> 00:30:02

worship, all my sacrifices,

00:30:03 --> 00:30:05

all my life

00:30:05 --> 00:30:08

and even my death. Everything is dedicated to

00:30:08 --> 00:30:08

you, O Allah.

00:30:11 --> 00:30:14

And, O Allah, to You will I return.

00:30:17 --> 00:30:19

And everything I have done good in this

00:30:19 --> 00:30:21

life is all dedicated to you, O Allah.

00:30:25 --> 00:30:27

O Allah, I ask you for protection

00:30:29 --> 00:30:29

Allah,

00:30:32 --> 00:30:32

I ask you for protection from the punishment

00:30:32 --> 00:30:32

of the grave. And, oh Allah, I ask

00:30:32 --> 00:30:33

you to protect my heart

00:30:34 --> 00:30:36

from the whispers of shaitan.

00:30:38 --> 00:30:41

And O Allah, I ask You to protect

00:30:41 --> 00:30:41

us.

00:30:42 --> 00:30:45

Protect me and protect us from all other

00:30:45 --> 00:30:46

kinds of evil things.

00:30:50 --> 00:30:53

O Allah, I ask you to protect me

00:30:54 --> 00:30:56

from anything evil that the wind

00:30:56 --> 00:30:58

could bring sweeping in.

00:30:59 --> 00:30:59

And Usama

00:31:02 --> 00:31:04

who was one of the closest people to

00:31:04 --> 00:31:06

the Prophet and used to always be in

00:31:06 --> 00:31:07

the service

00:31:07 --> 00:31:08

of the prophet

00:31:10 --> 00:31:11

He says that the prophet

00:31:12 --> 00:31:13

was sitting on the back of his camel

00:31:13 --> 00:31:14

making dua,

00:31:15 --> 00:31:17

And he had his hands up making dua.

00:31:19 --> 00:31:20

And he had the rope of the camel

00:31:20 --> 00:31:22

on the sitting on the back of the

00:31:22 --> 00:31:22

camel.

00:31:23 --> 00:31:25

And while he was making dua, the rope

00:31:25 --> 00:31:27

slipped and fell off the back of the

00:31:27 --> 00:31:28

camel.

00:31:28 --> 00:31:30

And when it fell, it kinda caused a

00:31:30 --> 00:31:31

bit of a tug

00:31:32 --> 00:31:33

on the rein of the camel. So the

00:31:33 --> 00:31:36

camel started dipping its head while the processor

00:31:36 --> 00:31:38

was sitting on it. So what you have

00:31:38 --> 00:31:39

to do in that situation, you need to

00:31:39 --> 00:31:40

grab the reins

00:31:40 --> 00:31:42

and you need to pull it up again

00:31:42 --> 00:31:44

so that the camel will get straight again.

00:31:45 --> 00:31:46

And he says, I was watching the prophet

00:31:47 --> 00:31:50

making dua, and the rope fell.

00:31:50 --> 00:31:51

And the prophet

00:31:51 --> 00:31:54

without breaking his concentration, without lowering both of

00:31:54 --> 00:31:56

his hands, he reached down with one hand,

00:31:56 --> 00:31:58

and he grabbed the rope and he pulled

00:31:58 --> 00:32:00

it back up, but he didn't stop making

00:32:00 --> 00:32:01

dua.

00:32:02 --> 00:32:04

Because that time and those moments were so

00:32:04 --> 00:32:05

precious and so valuable

00:32:07 --> 00:32:09

that he did not want to miss

00:32:09 --> 00:32:11

a second of dua,

00:32:11 --> 00:32:13

not 10 seconds of dua.

00:32:14 --> 00:32:16

Such a precious moment.

00:32:17 --> 00:32:19

So inshallah, what we're going to do from

00:32:19 --> 00:32:20

now,

00:32:21 --> 00:32:23

is we're going to

00:32:23 --> 00:32:26

engage in some du'a, some supplication to

00:32:27 --> 00:32:30

Allah Please be focused, remain focused, and concentrate.

00:32:30 --> 00:32:32

Let's make the most of these last few

00:32:32 --> 00:32:33

moments that we have.

00:33:01 --> 00:33:03

We have just a few minutes, so we're

00:33:03 --> 00:33:05

gonna inshallah read some duas, and then I

00:33:05 --> 00:33:07

wanna encourage everybody after we're done reading the

00:33:07 --> 00:33:09

duas that you make du'a on your own.

00:33:09 --> 00:33:10

I'm actually gonna sit on the floor and

00:33:10 --> 00:33:11

face a qibla, insha'Allah.

00:33:12 --> 00:33:14

But, what we'll do is we'll have a

00:33:14 --> 00:33:16

couple minutes of duas as a group, and

00:33:16 --> 00:33:18

then we'll have a few moments of silence

00:33:18 --> 00:33:19

where everybody can then

00:33:20 --> 00:33:21

beseech Allah personally.

00:33:32 --> 00:33:33

Allah, we ask you for your forgiveness, you

00:33:33 --> 00:33:35

Allah. Oh Allah, you are the one who

00:33:35 --> 00:33:36

is the most forgiving.

00:33:36 --> 00:33:38

Oh, Allah, you are the one who forgives

00:33:38 --> 00:33:39

and who loves to forgive you, Allah. So

00:33:39 --> 00:33:41

we ask you to please forgive us, you

00:33:41 --> 00:33:43

Allah. Oh, Allah, if you were to take

00:33:43 --> 00:33:45

all of the sins that we have committed,

00:33:45 --> 00:33:46

all of the mistakes that we have made

00:33:46 --> 00:33:49

and the indiscretions that we have, oh, Allah.

00:33:49 --> 00:33:50

If you were to count all of our

00:33:50 --> 00:33:52

negligence and all of our moments

00:33:53 --> 00:33:56

of forgetfulness, you Allah. Oh, Allah, we know

00:33:56 --> 00:33:58

that your forgiveness of those things would be

00:33:58 --> 00:33:59

nothing to you, you Allah.

00:34:00 --> 00:34:01

You could forgive us in a moment, you

00:34:01 --> 00:34:03

Allah. And for us,

00:34:03 --> 00:34:05

it would completely clean our slate, you Allah.

00:34:05 --> 00:34:07

But for you, it would be nothing but

00:34:07 --> 00:34:09

a single instance of your mercy, you Allah.

00:34:09 --> 00:34:11

So please forgive us, you Allah. Oh, Allah,

00:34:11 --> 00:34:12

gather all of our for all of our

00:34:12 --> 00:34:14

sins and our shortcomings, you Allah, and forgive

00:34:14 --> 00:34:15

them and wipe them clean on this day,

00:34:15 --> 00:34:17

you Allah. This is the day in which

00:34:17 --> 00:34:19

you send down your mercy, You Allah, the

00:34:19 --> 00:34:21

most, You Allah. Please allow us to take

00:34:21 --> 00:34:23

part in that mercy, You Allah. Oh, Allah,

00:34:23 --> 00:34:24

allow us to be those who are constantly

00:34:24 --> 00:34:27

guided, You Allah. Oh, Allah, give us the

00:34:27 --> 00:34:28

goodness in this life, you, Allah. And the

00:34:28 --> 00:34:30

goodness in the next life, you, Allah, and

00:34:30 --> 00:34:31

protect us from the punishment of the hellfire,

00:34:31 --> 00:34:34

you, Allah. Oh, Allah, on this day on

00:34:34 --> 00:34:35

this day, you Allah, it is the day

00:34:35 --> 00:34:38

in which you save the most souls from

00:34:38 --> 00:34:39

the fire of *, you Allah. That you

00:34:39 --> 00:34:41

write their names free from the fire of

00:34:41 --> 00:34:42

*, that their necks are saved. Oh, Allah,

00:34:42 --> 00:34:44

include us in that list, you Allah. Include

00:34:44 --> 00:34:46

us and our parents, you Allah, and our

00:34:46 --> 00:34:49

families, you Allah, and our teachers, you Allah,

00:34:49 --> 00:34:50

and all of our loved ones, you Allah,

00:34:50 --> 00:34:52

and the entire Ummah, everybody who believes La

00:34:52 --> 00:34:54

ilaha illa Allahu Muhammad Rasool Allah. Oh Allah,

00:34:54 --> 00:34:55

allow them to be amongst those that are

00:34:55 --> 00:34:58

cleared from the hellfire, you Allah. O Allah

00:34:58 --> 00:34:59

we ask you, you Allah, to relieve all

00:34:59 --> 00:35:02

of our anxieties and distresses, you Allah. O

00:35:02 --> 00:35:03

Allah we ask you to free us from

00:35:03 --> 00:35:04

all of our worries and all of our

00:35:04 --> 00:35:07

anxieties, you Allah. Our grief and our incapacity,

00:35:07 --> 00:35:09

you, Allah. Oh, Allah, protect us from laziness,

00:35:09 --> 00:35:12

you, Allah. Protect us from being cowardly, you,

00:35:12 --> 00:35:14

Allah, and being miserly, you, Allah. Oh Allah,

00:35:14 --> 00:35:15

allow us to be those that are free

00:35:15 --> 00:35:17

from debt, you Allah. And allow us to

00:35:17 --> 00:35:19

have our own agency, you Allah, that we're

00:35:19 --> 00:35:21

not overpowered by other people, you Allah. Oh

00:35:21 --> 00:35:24

Allah, give us health, you Allah. Oh Allah,

00:35:24 --> 00:35:25

give us health and well-being, You Allah. Oh

00:35:25 --> 00:35:25

Allah, grant us health and well-being in this

00:35:25 --> 00:35:25

life and the next life, You Rabbi Alamin.

00:35:25 --> 00:35:26

Oh Allah, please allow our hearts

00:35:31 --> 00:35:32

to remain firm on this path,

00:35:34 --> 00:35:35

Oh Allah, do not let our hearts fall

00:35:35 --> 00:35:38

off, You Allah. Don't let us become distracted,

00:35:38 --> 00:35:40

You Allah. Don't let our hearts deviate from

00:35:40 --> 00:35:42

one another, You Allah. From things like jealousy

00:35:42 --> 00:35:44

and ranker and envy, you Allah. Oh Allah,

00:35:44 --> 00:35:46

allow us to always remain united, you Allah,

00:35:46 --> 00:35:48

upon the kalima, you Allah. Oh Allah, allow

00:35:48 --> 00:35:50

us to always be those that unite upon

00:35:50 --> 00:35:53

our our blessed messenger, Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam,

00:35:53 --> 00:35:54

so that we can see him on the

00:35:54 --> 00:35:56

day of judgment, You Allah, and he can

00:35:56 --> 00:35:57

take us by the hand in his paradise.

00:35:58 --> 00:35:59

Oh, Allah, we ask you to give us

00:35:59 --> 00:36:02

strength, you Allah, and patience, you Allah, and

00:36:02 --> 00:36:03

allow us to be firm against all of

00:36:03 --> 00:36:05

the disbelieving efforts, you Allah. Oh Allah, we

00:36:05 --> 00:36:07

ask you to grant us patience you Allah.

00:36:07 --> 00:36:09

We ask you to grant the entire ummah

00:36:09 --> 00:36:11

patience you Allah, and strength you Allah, and

00:36:11 --> 00:36:13

allow them to withstand you Allah all the

00:36:13 --> 00:36:14

oppression and tyranny.

00:36:15 --> 00:36:17

Ask you on this day, You Allah, in

00:36:17 --> 00:36:17

which you send down your mercy in the

00:36:17 --> 00:36:17

most amount, You Allah, in the highest volume

00:36:17 --> 00:36:18

and the highest quantity, You Allah.

00:36:22 --> 00:36:24

Allow Your mercy to hit us, You Allah,

00:36:24 --> 00:36:25

like the rays of the sun, You Allah.

00:36:25 --> 00:36:27

Oh Allah, allow Your mercy to envelope us

00:36:27 --> 00:36:30

like oxygen, You Allah. Oh Allah, allow Your

00:36:30 --> 00:36:32

mercy to fall upon us like the the

00:36:32 --> 00:36:34

the rain of a storm, You Allah. Oh

00:36:34 --> 00:36:36

Allah, allow your mercy to cover us, You

00:36:36 --> 00:36:38

Allah. Allow your mercy to completely

00:36:38 --> 00:36:40

envelope us, You Allah, so that we experience

00:36:40 --> 00:36:42

nothing but your mercy, you Allah, in this

00:36:42 --> 00:36:43

life and the next

00:36:43 --> 00:36:45

year. Oh, Allah, there are many things that

00:36:45 --> 00:36:46

we seek from you, you Allah, and you

00:36:46 --> 00:36:48

know what is in the depths of every

00:36:48 --> 00:36:50

single person's heart, you Allah. Oh Allah, if

00:36:50 --> 00:36:51

it is good for us, you Allah grant

00:36:51 --> 00:36:53

it for us. And, oh Allah, if it

00:36:53 --> 00:36:54

is not good for us, then remove it

00:36:54 --> 00:36:55

from us and replace it with that which

00:36:55 --> 00:36:56

is

00:36:57 --> 00:36:58

better. Oh Allah, we ask you to send

00:36:58 --> 00:37:00

your peace and blessings upon our messenger, Muhammad

00:37:00 --> 00:37:02

sallallahu alaihi wasallam, our teacher, our beloved, our

00:37:02 --> 00:37:04

guide, our role model, the one who stood

00:37:04 --> 00:37:05

for us and cried in the night, you

00:37:05 --> 00:37:07

Allah, and he wept his eyes, you Allah,

00:37:07 --> 00:37:09

for us, you Allah. Oh, Allah, send your

00:37:09 --> 00:37:10

peace and blessings upon him and his family,

00:37:10 --> 00:37:13

you Allah, and upon his companions, you Allah,

00:37:13 --> 00:37:14

and allow us to be amongst those who

00:37:14 --> 00:37:16

follow them until the end of time. And

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

now I wanna encourage everybody to take just

00:37:18 --> 00:37:20

one moment to make their own duas before

00:37:20 --> 00:37:22

we hand out dates for the iftar.
