Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah he will Allah Allah he will be mine, my brothers and sisters in Islam as we finish Ramadan and Eid is about to begin. It is very important for a Muslim to understand what are the Sunnah practices on the day of a lead? And what are we supposed to avoid? First and foremost what is allotted and the V sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he undertook his yoga from Mecca to El Medina when he finally arrived to El Medina, he found the people of El Medina celebrating two days that they have a Nehru's will Maharaja and so he asked the people of El Medina, what are you celebrating? They said, We are celebrating two days that we used to

00:00:41--> 00:01:25

celebrate in the days of Algeria Helia before Islam arrived, we used to celebrate them. So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Allah Abdullah Kumihimo Hiram, in Houma, Yom will filter your home and he said to them, that Allah azza wa jal has replaced these two days with much better days. That is a dual filter and Adel of her. And we learned from this hadith that it is haram to celebrate any religious day, except Eden football, and Adel of her in the midst of Allahu Allahu wa sallam in this hadith, rejected and condemned every celebration, except a little further away than of her. So my brothers and sisters in Islam on this day have agreed there are certain etiquette

00:01:26--> 00:02:08

and there are sunnah that are supposed to be implemented. The first of them at the clear, Allah subhanho wa taala. He says in the Quran, well it took a bit Allah Allah mahadiscom Wa Alaikum dish Quran, Allah azza wa jal commanded us that we declare His greatness because of that which he guided us to. And how do we declare Allah azza wa jal? Is that clear. How do we declare his his greatness? ever miss ruderal the Allahu Anhu in one of the generations he mentioned to see Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Willie Leigh Hill hunt. We are declaring Allah's greatness because of his guidance for us. You see, in Ramadan, we worship Allah

00:02:08--> 00:02:51

azza wa jal. we fasted the days we prayed the nights we read Quran, we made vicar, we made dua, all of these good deeds who guided us to them, Allah azza wa jal so the way we thank him is by making tech beer with tech be it begins on the last day of Ramadan when the sun sets, and it continues all the way until the beginning of solid and read. And the Sunnah is to recite the tech we're not to listen to it. There are some people that will play a clip on YouTube, or tune into a radio station or a TV station and listen to the tech career. This is not right. This is not the Sunnah, Yanni, it's not like the Quran when we listen to the Quran, that is a sunnah you earn reward for it. But at

00:02:51--> 00:02:58

the end of the Sunnah is for you to recite it for you to say it Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, all the way until the end of it

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

now, so do this and practice it in the house with the children with the family as you're going to solid the lead on the road on the way, all of this time is a sunnah to recite this technique. The second sunnah is for men to wear the best of clothing and to apply perfume. This is a sunnah and this is something that was a cultural practice in the time of Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never condemned that, nor did he rejected. So it was known that it is a sunnah to where the best of clothing and to apply perfume. Also in the third sunnah is unloosen to have a shower before leaving to select the aid and this was narrated by

00:03:44--> 00:04:31

ibn Umar Radi Allahu Anhu. He used to take a bath before he used to go to Select and read. The fourth sunnah is to eat something before going to solid eight, and more specifically to eat a date and to eat them in an odd number as unassailably Allahu Anhu narrated that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would eat an odd number of dates. And this is so that you break your fast on the day of eight because it is haram to fast the day of Subhan Allah and when you eat this date, reflect on this, that just yesterday, we were fasting and for 30 days in a row and today, it is haram to fast we are eating why? Because yesterday, Allah azza wa jal told us fast he commanded us and today

00:04:32--> 00:04:59

Allah commands us to break our fast and this is how our life is. Whatever Allah azza wa jal tells us to do. We rush to do it. And whatever he forbids us from doing we avoid it. And this is our life. Allahu Akbar. the obedience of Allah subhanahu wata isla. Now, the fifth sunnah of an aide is that the Eat Pray is prayed outdoors. So find a place that is praying or find any way the Muslims are praying outdoors and

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

throwing them in masala outdoors, unless there's a necessity to pre indoors, bad weather or it's raining. Then Yanni it is fine and permissible to pre indoors. But the best the best Sunita Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to pre outdoors. This is what he would do sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even though he lived in El Medina, the prophets masjid, when they would come, he would walk out in the open, and he would put a stick into the earth. And that's where he would pray behind this stick as a sutra for him. Now, and this there is wisdom and I'm out of here, Muhammad Allah say, so that the unity of the Muslims could be on display and that everyone sees each other on the day of

00:05:40--> 00:06:25

aid. They listen to one Imam, they pray behind one Imam, or Subhanallah This is what Islam is, it's about the unity and the Muslims being together. The sixth matter here that we have is that it is also a sunnah for women to attend. SONET delayed and Holberton read. It is a sunnah for the young woman, for the Virgin, for the married woman for the menstruating woman, all forms of woman are to attend. When the be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said concerning the menstruating woman, he said, yeah, there's really no solid way she had no hide, that they just sit and they avoid praying because it has held on to pray. Yes, had no height and they witnessed the good, they see the good that is

00:06:25--> 00:07:11

happening. They listen to the hotbar and so on. The seventh matter here that we have is the Sunnah is to walk to solid aid and to walk back home, so nice to walk. Now, if that's if that's Yanni able, if you're able to do this in your case, as for people that live far away from where Salah tonight is going to be established, then there is no problem in driving there. But the sooner is to walk to an aid and to walk back home. And this is what other nama Radi Allahu Anhu narrated that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to do and another sunnah. And this is the eighth sunnah is that you go to select delayed with one way and you come back home another way Subhan Allah and the wisdom

00:07:11--> 00:07:54

behind this as an elemental him on whom Allah mentioned that so that you can have two paths that witness for you on the Day of Judgment, Allahu Akbar, one path would see he walked through me to come to Salah tonight, and another path would say he came through me to go back home. And all of this is worship. And all of this is a witness for you on the Day of Judgment, and all this walking was in obedience to Allah subhanho wa taala. The ninth matter is to congratulate one another on the date of an eighth to congratulate one another by seeing the Cabal Allahu Minh. Now women come and this is something that is not recommended, nor is there any a hadith or a sunnah that rejects it.

00:07:54--> 00:08:33

Imam Ahmed Mohamed salah, he said it is permissible for people to recur to congratulate one another by saying Taco Bell Allahu minimum income or any other words will remember him Lima Muhammad Allah him Allah He said, I do not start congratulating people, because there is no sooner for this. There is nothing specifically mentioned by Nabhi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he will do this. However, if a person wants to congratulate me on the day of aid, then I would respond to him and so congratulate each other on the day of and aid by saying Taco Bell Allahu minimum income or Eid Mubarak or any other words that carry this meaning of congratulating my brothers and sisters in

00:08:33--> 00:09:14

Islam. And this is to be done there and congratulating each other after solid delay, that's the best time for it. And then attend selected a pre selected a listen to Alibaba. And finally, there are things to avoid on the day of aid. Number one, do not spend the night of an IED in Haram. So many people spend the night of late in Haram one night before they were all in worship. They were all praying to Allah. They were all crying and begging for Allah's mercy and forgiveness and being freed from the fire and the night of need. People spend it in cigarettes were shisha, and whatever it is, all of this is impermissible, severely impermissible. Subhan Allah as the shaytaan is released, you

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

will see his effect on the OMA. So be careful and be from those who are avoiding all these haram matters that happened on the night of aid and the day of aid. Also, it is not recommended. No it is a sunnah to visit the graves on the day of aid. So avoid this. Avoid visiting specifically visiting the graves on the day of aid is impermissible because the day of aid is a day of celebration, and rejoice and joy and happiness, not a day of sadness. The other thing is avoid on the day of aid mixing between the genders. Avoid this and shaking hands with non Muharram woman. This is all impermissible and not allowed on the day of Eid. Also, avoid the Oh

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

Decorating. Subhanallah people today have made the celebration of an Eid like that people celebrating Christmas and Easter and other other matters to the point where some Muslims may Allah azza wa jal guide us and them have made our Eid tree just like the Christmas tree, and this is no doubt haram and it is rejected in Islam. We tell these people with all kindness and compassion and wisdom, please avoid these matters and close them and turn and remove them from your business for the sake of Allah azza wa jal. This is not permissible to introduce these matters in Islam. If there was a retreat, the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have been the first one to teach us this

00:10:41--> 00:11:20

kind of sunnah. But this thing doesn't exist. And this over declaration is also not a sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so avoid light decorations maybe perhaps a banner that says there Eid Mubarak and you put it in the house, two three balloons maybe something like this something very light, then this is an amount for him on Allah some made exception for this no problem. But over decorating, this is not the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, enjoy the day of aid. Spend it in obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala and spend on your family. This is also something that is recommended and something that is

00:11:20--> 00:11:50

like allow your children to enjoy the day of a lead and allow them to enjoy this day and enjoy it with them as well. And the lead goes on for one day as opposed to a than up here that goes on for the three days. For we ask Allah subhanahu wa ala to accept from us all we ask him SubhanaHu wa ala to grant us success in this life and in the next in the whole your veliko cuadrado are SallAllahu wasallam Opelika ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germaine mine
