Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam Alma birthright maternal Alameen Nabina Muhammad wa ala early he was such a big marine robot. I said I'm alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. I'm your brother Abdul Rahim McCarthy. A quick reminder I want to remind myself of these days and my brothers and sisters in Islam, and that is about the blessings of the day of alpha Alhamdulillah. During the days, the 10 days of dual hedger, we are blessed to be in these days, where Allah subhanaw taala has praised him in the Quran. And the Prime Minister has informed us that there is no day that doing good deeds in is better than these 10 days of good
hedger. And during these 10 days of good hedger, we have the greatest day of the year, because the greatest days of the year are these 10 days of good hedger, which a lot of us tend to forget about. But the greatest day of the year is that they have out of the greatest day of politicians that the sun rose upon as the Prophet sallallaahu Selim taught us and from the virtues of the greatness of this day, is that Allah subhanho wa Taala he swore by this day in the Quran. When you go back to the Tafseer of sortal, Bruges in verse three was shall he do well my shoot, our Herrera narrated the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Yeoman Maru the promise day is Yeoman piano and the de
anima shoot is Yamato and the Shah hit is Yeoman Juma the day of Juma and this came in the gem of Imam Ahmed Sudha. Murthy. It is considered authentic hadith. So Allah subhanaw taala swore by this they also installed until Fajr. In a chef rule with Allah subhanaw taala swore by the chef and winter, even at best what the Allahu Anhu man he said the chef is the day of Aloha the day of Eid, it's so and the winter is the day of Yom Arafa. So we gave him this and we benefit that Yom out of Allah subhanaw taala he swore by it to show us the greatness and importance of this day so we can pay attention to this day. We don't enable Allah subhanho The all great Subhana wa Tada he swears by
something he is showing us the importance of this so we can focus on it as Muslims also from the things that show us the greatness of this day is that it is the day that our deen our religion was completed on
Oh, when I'm hooked up he mentioned that one of the Jews came to him and he said there's an ayah there's a verse in the book of Allah He said if the Jews if we knew it, we would have made this day and eat in a day of celebration.
He said what is that I have asked him he said Al Yo como Tula come Dino come what month to Allah come near Methuselah. Lita, Nokomis, la Medina and salted maida and this verse and so the might of verse number three. He said that today listen with us today we have finished for you have completed for your religion, and we have perfected for you or giving you the complete near the blessing. And we have chosen for you the religion of Islam as your religion.
Oh on copper, he said to the Jui severity I know when it came down and which day it came down and he mentioned it was after it was that was on the premises and was standing on the day of out of out of before now is in the $100 that the farewell has he said this. So he said we know where it came down. It came down this day. So the Dean was finished on this day. It's a reminder to us about the fact that our deal was completed and finished on this day. And this reminds us when the dean is complete that there's no need for anybody to add any religion. It reminds us of the importance of holding on to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and not inventing anything into the
religion. The region is complete a lock in period for us he perfected the religion for us. On this day, a great reminder to us and from the great things that all of us know. We must constantly remind ourselves to remind our children especially and that is fasting this day. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said as it came in the Hadith, Abu Qatada and Sahih Muslim that this day the day of alpha you kufr a sinner, el mal via was sin el Kadima or Sena el Karbala. In this narration in Sahih Muslim, the province isn't was asked about the fasting of out of, he said that barely it will forgive to pass your sins in the coming years since. So it's two years of sins forgiven for fasting
one day. And this shows us the mercy and the blessings and the kindness of Allah subhanaw taala for this OMA and it's a reminder to us to strive on this day and to continue striving throughout the year as well. So it's important that we remind ourselves during these days about the importance of fasting as they don't say after work after this. It's only one day we remind our kids about the importance of fasting as the from a young age, so don't know the importance in the status of the day of alpha and they'll focus on Benning, benefiting from this day from the young age and all through their life in shallow Tada.
The day of alpha is a day with a sense of forgiven when the people are forgiven from the hellfire. The war saved from the hellfire and a low praises his servants as well. It came in several narrations like for example in Sahih Muslim hadith of Aisha
Another integration in the Muslim Imam Ahmed from the hadith of Abdullah bin Omar Radi Allahu Anhu many different narrations were lost. Subhana wa Tada says that on this day he will free people from the hellfire and that he will forgive them from their sins. And that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada will tell his angels look at my servants who have come here out of and that they, they have come here in the situation where their their hair is all messed up and then full of dust because of the traveling to alpha. And they've come to call on me ask for my forgiveness. So He is praising them, he says to his mind as milega he praises his servants. On this day, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. After
knowing the status, and the greatness of this day, it's an important it's important that we remind ourselves of things that we should or shouldn't be doing on this day. And one of the greatest things that we should stay away from on this day is any type of sins any type of deeds that are displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala and this should be the way of the Muslim all throughout the year.
I'm gonna mention to you a hadith the hadith is a difference of opinion, is it authentic or not? The scholar Some scholars say it's authentic. Some say it's not, and Hadith was narrated by Imam Ahmed and his Mumsnet. That and phobail, that alphabet, even abbess are the Allahu anhu, the cousin of the Prophet SAW Selim, that he was on hatch, and it was confirmed another Hadith, that when they started to make from the mere court, that he saw him looking over to me he moved away and this narration, they went out of, and this generation, the prophesy centum, he moved his head back and he looked again, he moved his head back, so he kept looking, he said to me, I even happy, he said in the
heather young Melaka Melaka fie Samara, who were Basara who while he said who will follow that whoever during this day can chose his sight when he looks at that when he listens to and that which he says that Allah will forgive him. So it's a great chance to get forgiven on his day, but we must stay away from doing any sins, or anything that's displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala during his day, and like I said, that's how we should be all during the year but on this day, it's even more important to emphasize staying away from that which is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala from the things we need to focus on during this day, is making a lot of vicar remembering Allah ibn Umar Radi
Allahu anhu, has said that we weren't the prophets or the lawyers in the day of alpha. And he said, some of us were making tech be it Allahu Akbar, and someone was making Tehila Hello. What's important is constantly remembering Allah subhanahu wa sallam. And that said beer. It starts by the way, there's two types of tech beer during these days of the ledger. The first one starts from the beginning of the ledger and the first day of the ledger. And that's anytime, anyplace. That's what I'm about. That's why I will Herrera and even almoradi Allahu Anhu. They used to always make the tech beer and they swap the marketplaces and what have you. So it's important that we constantly
remember Allah subhanaw taala making a tech Bill law workbook, a law workbook law, in law law, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. What do you have anytime anyplace during these days? It's from the shadow of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we make the deen clear to the people remind the people to remember a lot of people a lot during these days. And on the day of out of it started as a special tech beer which starts from the day of out of up after the five daily prayers in the masjid we shouldn't say it as a group pay attention to this we should not say it as a group where the Imam says it and then everybody steps in everybody should say it by himself. So don't say in a group and
14 type of innovation this I asked myself I asked chicken basketball this and he told me no it should only be done by individually not by in a group form. After this, remember law at all times the prophets I send them told us that the greatest dua the greatest dua is the dua of out of and he said in the best thing that I used to say in the prophets before me was La ilaha illallah wa the hula Shetty killer the whole moon coup Wallah hula hamdu Wahoo Allah coalition Kadir the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say this dua and he said the best to do is to make dua either out of and he will focus instead he was out of us, or at least that was salam. And just focus
throughout returning to Allah subhanho wa taala. Scotland going in depth and dua focusing so much and do on this day. And the scholars of Islam mentioned that the correct opinion is that this dua is not just for the people in or out of it, it's for everybody during this day they can get this edge of this being the greatest form of dua the best type or time to do is during this day, so focus on his dua and focus on saying, Allahu Allahu la sharika the whole color will hum who Allah collusion cordial, and this reminds us of the importance of Tawheed of having pure Islamic monotheism. Only worshiping Allah is one that have any partners with him not doing anything for ya. so other people
can say about this having a class and you're a bother that you are Muslim, you only live for Allah, everything you do is for Allah. And this brings us to an end. A quick reminder about the blessing
Things in the virtues and the status of this blessed day of alpha we focus on it we fast on it, we make to do our we stay away from that which is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala we strive to in his day and show up perhaps it will be a changing point in our life to strive throughout the year. And Allah knows best Allahu allah sallallahu wasallam Mubarak ala Nabina Muhammad
