Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh, my brothers and my sisters, I hope all of you are doing well. This is your brother, Muhammad and I'm here in sha Allah to shed some light on Muharram and Ashura, what is the importance of this, you know, sacred month and what is the importance of Ashura in this month of Muharram? Well, the name Muharram itself signifies that it is holy, it is sacred, it is prestigious in the sight of Allah subhanahu wa taala. And also this is the first month of the entire Islamic year, it is the month of the new where the New Year of the Muslims starts Subhan Allah, it is the month about which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that shahada,

00:00:50--> 00:01:45

Allah Hill Muharram This is the month of Allah subhanahu Dyana Allahu Akbar, by attributing the month of Muharram to Allah subhanho wa Taala itself shows that this is a great month Subhan Allah and that is the reason the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam used to be very keen fasting in the month of Muharram. So he used to fast a lot, you know, after the month of Ramadan, this was the month used to fast a lot, so we must also do the same. Also, we know that Subhan Allah in it in the month of Muharram. In this sacred month is a day Ashura as the name itself states, it is the 10th day of Muharram on which we need as Muslimeen to fast why do we need to fast? Well, we have a little

00:01:45--> 00:02:39

background, you know, for this, when Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to Medina, he saw Jews fasting on the day of Ashura. And when was asked, Why do you fast on the day of our Shula, they said this is a celebration day. This is the day when Allah subhanho wa Taala gave victory to Musa A salaam, and this is the date when the Frauen was drowned and was defeated by Musa alayhis salam. This was the day when the children of Israel were saved. So the prophets on the level I didn't even send them. He said, we have more closeness with new silent cinema than you do. So he then said that we need to also fast on the day of Ashura, that is a 10th today of Muharram. Also, the prophets are

00:02:39--> 00:03:31

lover Ali Salam. He said that I hope whoever fast on the day of Ashura is previous year, minor sins will be forgiven. So again, it's an opportunity for us to be forgiven by Allah subhanho wa taala. Also my beloved brothers and sisters, we know that the story of Musa alayhis salam in the Quran is mentioned a lot. So there is a context towards this day. So we need to ensure that we fast and we remember new side a Salam who is also from the early Rasm Amina Rasul the best and the highest five prophets in the messengers of Allah subhanho wa taala. There is reflection that we need to do on this day that it was the day when Allah subhanaw taala helped Musa alayhis salam defeating for our

00:03:31--> 00:04:14

own and making children of Israel saved through Him Subhan Allah, so my beloved brothers and sisters, this is the month which is sacred, you know, which is holy, which is the month where we need to do a lot of good, we need to prevent ourselves from that which is bad, we need to ensure that we fast as much as we can, and especially we need to fast on the DL fire shooter, as I've shared the benefits and the virtues of the day of Ashura, and the prophets resume. He also indicated that if in sha Allah, if I live for the next year, I will fast two days, not just one, two days, so the prophets Islam, we couldn't live, you know, the next year otherwise, we know he would have

00:04:14--> 00:05:00

faster to me as loosely mean, we need to fast the tend to date, and we need to attach it to one day, either the ninth or the 11th. Meaning we need to fast two days in this month, bare minimum in order to gain the rewards and have that reflection that this was the day when Allah subhanaw taala helped Musa alayhis salam and we need to have that connection, that that, you know, Link and the relationship with Musa alayhis salam also we need to have that that that beautiful form of understanding of our deen that every step every you know, action that is given to us is a point of benefit to us. And it's a point

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

Waiting to be forgiven by Allah subhanahu dialler let us make use of this beautiful month of Muharram by fasting as much as we can and gain the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and be successful for dunya and akhira in this world and in the hereafter we're our hero, Dara Anna and it hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen
