Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim hamdulillah hornbill Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. Li. B Germaine, All Praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhanahu wa ala. And may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon his seventh and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as follows My dear respected Brothers and Sisters in Islam Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. And today we continue our discussion that we began with yesterday. And that is speaking about the sacred months. Yesterday, we discussed the consequences, the severe danger of sinning, especially during the sacred months, and today, we're going to continue Inshallah, to Allah, the lesson is going to be short.

00:00:45--> 00:00:54

We're focusing on the events and the virtues that or the virtues of the sacred month of Bilka, which we are

00:00:55--> 00:01:21

11 days into so far. So today is the 11th of the sacred month of the calendar. And then we're going to speak about a recommended deed and an action that is to be done during the sacred months. And we'll speak about what to avoid, and this is something anyone spoke about yesterday, but we'll summarize a bit of Nilay Dinah. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, as we said that Allah subhanho wa taala, when he created the heavens and the earth,

00:01:22--> 00:02:11

He made the months of the 12 months, and he chose from 12 months, four months, that I assure home that are sacred months, and these are the months of the al Qaeda, the Asia and Alamo Harlem. And they are three months that are consecutive, they came straight after each other. We are now in the month of al Qaeda, the next month, which is the month of which is called villager. And the month after it is Al maha brahma. And that's the month that has I showed up in which was the day in where Allah azza wa jal saved Musa alayhis salam from Iran and his army. And then there is one more of the sacred month that comes separate and that is the month of worship. And so since we are now in the

00:02:11--> 00:02:59

month of video Canada, it is very important for the believers and for the Muslims to understand what happened in this month. What are the events in the virtues of this month and what to do in the sacred month and what to avoid? First and foremost, this is the month in which Allah subhanahu wa taala appointed for Musa alayhis salam to fast Allah azza wa jal you said well, we're Agnor Musa fella Athena Lee Latin or atma Nair hair bow short for terminal kotula B or Barina. Leila, when Musa alayhis salam when Allah azza wa jal wanted to reveal to Musa alayhis salam, his word, the Scripture Atolla Allah azza wa jal called Musa alayhis salam to meet him at the mountain. And so Musa alayhis

00:02:59--> 00:03:52

salam was commanded to fast 30 nights. And so obviously he's also fasting the days. So Musa alayhis salam fasted 30 days and 30 nights. And this was the month of al Qaeda the month that we are in now. And then Allah azza wa jal increased him another 10 days. And those 10 days were the first 10 days of Malaysia, which is the month after the altar. And that was 40 days that Musa alayhis salam fostered alongside its nights. And after these 40 days, he was ready to meet Allah subhanahu wata Allah and Allah azza wa jal spoke to him. And he revealed to him at the law, he revealed to him the word of Allah subhanahu wa taala. So the idea is, this was a month in which Allah azza wa jal

00:03:52--> 00:04:36

prepared the Musa alayhis salam in order for Musa to meet Allah subhanahu wata isla. This is the secret month of the paradise also in this month of volterra. It is the month it is mentioned by Alpha zero that this is the month in which Ibrahim and his son is married Allah He must Salam raised the foundation of the gatherer. This was a big deal. This is a big event, a huge event that Allah azza wa jal would record in the Quran in surah Al Baqarah Allah azza wa jal he said, What if you're a farmer Ibrahim will go into mineral bathe what is Marielle or Bernard Koppelman in the semi rural Aleem? Allah azza wa jal recalls this event in the Quran, and this happened in rural Canada in this

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

month that we are in, in where Ibrahim and his marine Allah uma Salam raised the foundations of the Kaaba. So you see the first one who built the Kaaba, there is a film if there is a difference of opinion among the ultimate. Was it the angels who built the cabin first, or was it Adam Alayhis Salam, but there is no doubt that Adam Alayhis Salam, as soon as he arrived on Earth he was removed

00:05:00--> 00:05:51

From the paradise on put on Earth, either the capital was already there built by the angels or either he built it because this was the first worship house that was built for mankind. Al Kaba in our world debate in OB aliveness levy be bacchetta Mobile rockin Wahoo the lil Alameen. Allah azza wa jal stated a fact that the first house that was established on Earth for worshiping Allah azza wa jal was the house in Baca was the house in Makkah, which is the cabin. And so, it is not possible that a prophet exists on earth, and there is no worship place. So the Kaaba was there at the time of Adam Alayhis Salam or he was the first to build al Qaeda. Later on. When Ibrahim alayhis salam

00:05:51--> 00:06:38

builds the Kaaba, he doesn't build it from scratch from new Allah azza wa jal said what era Pharaoh Ibrahim will cover either in Al Bayt, what is married Ibrahim and is married, raised the already existing foundations of the Gaza. But by his time it was it did not exist as a building. It wasn't there. So you had to rebuild. And he rebuilt in the exact same place. It was built at the time of Adam Alayhis Salam. So he raises the foundation and he builds the GABA during this month of Bulka. Such a huge event that Allah azza wa jal would make mention of in the Quran. And after Ibrahim alayhis salam and Izmir Hill built the Kaaba, they made the drought seem a lot better. The Koppelman

00:06:38--> 00:07:03

in Africa and the semi rural Aleem. They asked Allah azza wa jal to accept from them, Allahu Akbar, here, one of the seller for Him of whom Allah He said that Ibrahim, and he's married, they built a house for the Most Merciful, a house for Allah for Obama, and they built a house for the Most Merciful By command of the Most Merciful

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

to worship the Most Merciful.

00:07:08--> 00:07:59

And even then, they would make a DUA to say, Oh Allah, except from us, in a cat in the semi or on a limb. And so this is teaching you and I, that every deed we do, that Allah commanded us to do, you need to follow it up by asking Allah to accept because if Allah azza wa jal was to accept your deeds, then that promotes you to the level of ultimate pain to the level of the pious that will enter the Paradise because Allah azza wa jal said in Salton man either in the mayor Taco Bell Allahu Minamata teen, Allah azza wa jal only accepts the deeds from Alma takim. From the righteous from the people of Taqwa from people that have true taqwa in the heart. This is where a Taqwa is, as in the

00:07:59--> 00:08:50

basal Allahu alayhi wa sallam would point these just a Taqwa Hoonah. What Taqwa is to obey Allah and follow and adhere to the obligations in the commandments, and to keep away from that which Allah subhanahu wa taala prohibited. Now this is a tough one. It is only people that adhere to the commands of Allah that Allah accepts from them. So he's Ibrahim and is married, have done a good deed. They have built Alka for Allah, and by command of Allah, and they are still asking Allah to accept from them. So every deed you do, follow it up with the DUA, or Ben a couple minutes in NACA and the semi rally, and destroy it humbles a servant. It humbles him and it allows you to recognize

00:08:50--> 00:09:00

that without Allah's acceptance, you are nothing and your deeds are nothing and Allah is not in need of you or your deeds for Ask Allah azza wa jal to accept Trump's

00:09:01--> 00:09:13

this month, the month of dukkha is the month in which the uncle of rasool Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam abou Polly, he died during this month.

00:09:14--> 00:09:59

The month of Vilka is the month in which the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abu Talib dies and speaking about the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We are in need of Allah we are in need to defend the honor of our beloved messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not that enemy sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or Allah need us to defend his messenger? Because Allah azza wa jal has said in Latin solo for Cardinal surah Allah, if you do not give victory and support this messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then Allah has already defended and supported him and aided him. Allah is not in need of us defending in the resolve Allahu alayhi wa sallam

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

We are in need of defending interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to prove our love and belief in the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it is only righteous believers. That defendant Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam.

00:10:17--> 00:10:22

They are the only people who love Nabi. sallallahu alayhi wa salam and obey His command. So

00:10:23--> 00:11:12

this is the month in which our polyp, the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam died, while polyp defended the NABI sallallahu alayhi wasallam so much to the point when the VSA Allahu alayhi wa sallam himself would say, I never ever received harmful Quraysh in the same way I received it after the death of Abu polyp, meaning I will poorly protected the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so well, that he never received any harm from them when Ebola was alive, but when his uncle had died, then in the view, sallallahu alayhi, wasallam was harmed, and he felt the pain and the harm of polish and the Arab tribes that harmed him.

00:11:13--> 00:11:45

So Allahu alayhi wa sallam. So we need to, as we said, and by the way, this is our body, his uncle, and at the end of the day, and the view sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that since about polyp did not accept Islam, he enters the hellfire, and he is the only one who receives minimal punishment that we know of that has been mentioned to us, the only one who receives minimal punishment, he is standing on coal, and his brain is boiling.

00:11:46--> 00:12:01

And he defended in the beast sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but he did not accept Islam, and he died upon goofer and should he died upon millet, Abdullah Nepali which was the religion of Kava, and

00:12:03--> 00:12:44

the only polytheism. worshipping idols. And so this teaches you something that the one who loves in the the sallallahu alayhi wasallam and wants to defend him, but does not follow his path does not follow his way that is not going to benefit you. It will not benefit you and admit you into the paradise. True love for Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to follow the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So my Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam reflect over this lesson, as we live during this month of Bilka, remembering that this is the month in which the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam died.

00:12:45--> 00:13:02

Also, the final one of the virtues that we can mention for the month of the al Qaeda is that all the Umbra of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They all took place in this sacred month of Volca.

00:13:03--> 00:13:54

And Allah azza wa jal only chooses what is best for Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam performed for Arambula in his entire life for Umrah and all of them were in the secret month of the Canada. And so the, of course, the best formula to be performed would be in Ramadan. Because the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a formula in Ramadan is equivalent, it earns a person reward as though he has done harsh with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then the second best time to do a Amara is in the month of Vilka is in this month. And so in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam performed formula in his life. The first one, and this is

00:13:54--> 00:14:05

as mentioned by Anasazi, abnormal obey Allah 100. The first one was in rural Canada, the sixth II of unusual which is known as I am and how they BIA and

00:14:06--> 00:14:19

the Muslims had reached Maccha. But then they were obstructed, and they weren't allowed to perform the formula that IE and the only there was a solid there was a peace treaty between the believers and Quraysh.

00:14:20--> 00:14:53

And that's a different story. But anyway, they had left El Medina with the intention of Amara, and then they cut the Haram state there, and they did not complete that ombre, but the reward of the formula was counted for them see the mercy of Allah azza wa jal. The intention was there. They left El Medina, they reached to the doors of Makkah, and they were returned. And Allah azza wa jal would give them all the reward of a normal. So the first normal of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in the sixth year of Elisha.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

The second role of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the X next to the seven

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

fee of adhesion, and it was known as moto turbo. It was the formula that was meant to be for the 60. But it was delayed and it was done and completed in the seventh fee. That's the second normal. The third formula was in the eighth fee of alegebra. And it was I am Alfred V of the conquest of Mecca. And it happened right after the Battle of Hunan when the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had finished from the battle of Hunan, and took a look in the spoils of war, the booty of war, and he spread them and divided them among the companions and the new believers that have accepted Islam. After that he headed towards Mecca, and he performed our formula. And the fourth and final formula

00:15:44--> 00:16:33

of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the Ramallah that he did with his house and he sallallahu alayhi wa salam done only one hush in his lifetime. And this one, he had left El Medina six days before the end of the lcada. So he made his intention for how, six days before the end of Boca, and then he left from there, until he arrived to Makkah during the month of Malaysia, which is the month straight after the al Qaeda, and he performed his Amara, and then al Hush. So these were the ombre of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in this month of the My Brothers and Sisters in Islam.

00:16:34--> 00:17:24

There is a recommended deed that is to be done during the sacred month of Bilka. And all the secret months that he's Jeff Elmore, had one embrasure. And that is that and the reason why Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said to the companion, some mineral Hiromi what to look so mineral Hiromi what took some mineral Hiromi what work and the reason Allahu Allah He was salam recommended the companion, and he said to him fast during the sacred months, and leave certain days, fast on Days and leave certain days, fast on Days and leave certain days. He said it three times, and then maybe sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the narration mentions, what color they also are very he felt a certain forbore

00:17:24--> 00:18:18

Maha from our salah, hear you an interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the companion fast from the sacred months and leave and fast and leave and fast some days and leave some days a llama or Hema, whom Allah they said, this signal and hand motion of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meant that it is recommended during the secret months to fast three days and to leave three days fast the next three days and break your fast for the next three days. And you do that for the months of and hold on the sacred months will Claire who Mahara and Russia except that channel Allah Allah Maha Brahma the month of Muharram This is the best month to fast after Ramadan. So so the

00:18:18--> 00:19:04

Sunnah here is that for the month of Muharram to be fasted, if you can fast all of it, then that is good. And that is a sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then one of the recommended deeds to be done during the first nine days of Malaysia is too fast. The first nine days and the 10th day would be the day of a lead. And then we'll Paradise which we are in now, ambrosia. The sooner in them is the first three days and leave three days and also for the month of Malaysia and the days that are after allayed the first three days and to leave three days now. And the shekel Islam even Tamia Rahim Allah, He said,

00:19:06--> 00:19:15

That interview some Allahu alayhi wa sallam would recommend to the companions to first the secret months, and that is the incredible Asia bahawa and Russia.

00:19:16--> 00:19:59

And the sooner we see is to fast during the sacred months, and not to specify the month of Russia. Because there is a bit of that happens and innovation that happens when the month of Rajab begins. And that is that some people believe and this is because of fabricated a hadith that exists in the Ummah, that there is a specific virtue for fasting, specifically the month of worship. And this is false. This is an innovation. There is no specific Hadith that will tell us to fast the 27th day of Rajab, and to prove the 27th Night of Raja these are fabricated

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

rather than what is to be said, is that generally, Alicia is a sacred month. And so it is recommended to first during the sacred months. Now my brothers and sisters in Islam, that's what's recommended to be done in the sacred months. And the thing that we are supposed to avoid during the sacred months, Allah azza wa jal would mention this in the Quran. And this is how important it is to be conscious and aware of this fact. Allah azza wa jal, he said, fell out of limbo fee hidden and full second, do not run yourselves during the sacred months. So what is extremely forbidden and what we are supposed to carefully be awake and alert and avoid our sins during the sacred months, Allah

00:20:47--> 00:20:59

said, do not roam yourselves. And that is by doing harm by doing sins by disobeying Allah, by keeping away from obligations and neglecting obligations, such as the five daily prayers.

00:21:00--> 00:21:51

And also by doing that, which is haram, we need to avoid all this fanatically. Mophie Nam Fusa. Calm also means Do not oppress and harm others. All of this is extremely forbidden during the sacred months. A sin done in the sacred months is not like a sin that is done outside the sacred months. A sin during the sacred months is huge. It's big of a deal. Whereas a sin that is done outside the secret months, is not as extreme as the sin that is committed in the sacred months. And this is because Allah made these months secret. And he forbid any kind of killing or bloodshed or initiating war during these months, which is why they were called and assured them and so we need to respect

00:21:51--> 00:22:03

the sanctity of Allah, we need to respect that which Allah made secret. So avoid sins because this is what Allah azza wa jal commanded. So my brothers and sisters in Islam

00:22:05--> 00:22:17

motivate yourself and awaken your soul and your heart and embrace the worship of Allah azza wa jal during these months and increase in your worship and make

00:22:18--> 00:23:03

an increase in your fasting especially and understand that the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, how fertile Jana to build Macquarie that the Paradise has been surrounded with hardships and difficulties. And what this means is that the road to the Paradise is a difficult road. It's a difficult road, there are hardships and the worships are difficult. They are hard. They require patience. And once you're patient enough, Allah azza wa jal will feed your soul, the sweetness of this worship, you will reach a stage where you're not able to live a day without worshipping Allah subhanho wa taala, extra worships and involuntary worships

00:23:05--> 00:23:44

and also guarding your prayers, five daily prayers this is this is a difficulty it requires patience, it requires for you to find your laughs and to adhere to this command and to suppress your anger and to forgive others and to give sadaqa and to be good and to have good manners and to speak good words right and to follow us and to pray. All of these are known as mCherry. They are difficult upon enough's. So as a result, this is the road to the paradise. That's what Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the Paradise has been surrounded with difficulties

00:23:45--> 00:24:34

and they require patience, Allah azza wa jal, he said far but who was probably a bear that they worship Allah and be patient, towards the worship, be patient when you worship Allah azza wa jal and I finally conclude with this. And it's such a beautiful understanding. And this has something to do with Matt zamzam drinking some some, you know, drinking, ZamZam is a form of worship. It is a worship. So then how's your Lima hola once he asked a banal Rafa Rahim Allah Who Jamia he has you have set up an alpha asking him about zum zum. He said to him, why isn't zamzam tasty and this is a reality. zamzam is a heavy type of water. It is not tasty compared to other waters that come from

00:24:34--> 00:24:59

springs or or valleys or whatever it is. It stems from is a heavy pipe of water. It is nourishment it is food as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said zum zum bom bom where she felt on what she felt was superb. It is food it is nourishing. It is heavy. The one who drinks a cup and two fuels full. So even how's your ask them an alpha? Why isn't zum zum tea

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

See?

00:25:01--> 00:25:05

So an alpha answered him beautifully. He said to him,

00:25:07--> 00:25:55

because zamzam drinking it is a form of worship. It was made not tasty, so you can always remember this is a worship, and had it been tasty than people would have drank it as a form of enjoyment and luxury, forgetting the worship part altogether. Allahu Akbar 700. Allah loves this answer, and he would mention it to the people and he would spread it to the people after this. So zamzam in itself when you drink zum zum This is a worship. You are seeking closeness to Allah when you drink this water. Was sunnah is when you drink it, that you say Bismillah and you drink and you drink with an intention. Make an intention. So your intention could be that Allah azza wa jal grant you knowledge

00:25:55--> 00:26:38

or grantee wisdom, or grant you the ability to memorize or grantee shifa cure could be anything, you have an intention, and then you drink one sip, and then you make you drink again, and you make you drink again, and you make diet. This is what zum zum is drinking zum zum is a form of worship. So if it was tasty, if it was tasty, people would have drank it as a form of luxury and an enjoyment forgetting the worship aspect altogether. This is very important for us to understand that how the worships are the worships or difficulty. They are heavy, they are tough, but the one who has patience, will be able to go straight through until he reaches the afterlife. And until he owns the

00:26:38--> 00:27:20

pleasure of Allah subhanho wa taala. For we are now in the sacred months, the month of Dhokla Okada. The month of June is coming, the month of metabolome coming, we have a long road ahead of us, we have plenty of secret days that are ahead of us. We need to respect them. Keep away from all forms of sin and disobedience and transgression and oppression. And focus on your worship, focus on fasting. When the days of the Asia come in sha Allah will meet again, and we'll discuss the virtue of the first 10 days of Malaysia and what the believer is supposed to do. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to save us from sin and to protect us from sins and we ask him subhanho wa Taala to grant us

00:27:20--> 00:27:23

the ability that we worship Him SubhanaHu wa the island

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

and we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala that He

00:27:29--> 00:27:49

grant us success in this life in in the afterlife. Of course we'll probably have a lot of stuff for Allah Holly welcome for still feel awful in Neville Hall have ordered Rahim or sallahu wa Salam o about a gala and a b you know Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ashima Marine, which is Kamala, who was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
