Spindler would come to dinner was Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah it was it was Salaam Salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. Those who have joined us on Instagram and those who have joined us on Facebook,
may Allah reward you and benefit you with whatever we are going to say inshallah and discuss today and today in Sharla It's a special lecture. It's on the blessed days of the hijet it is to prepare us for the days of good hedger inshallah, so just pausing for one week from our regular lecture on that, at that we should hear the slimy manners, the etiquettes and challenges for today, we're going to focus on the hedger will return insha Allah to a regular halaqa insha Allah next week. So the days of the hedgerow one of the greatest seasons and opportunities to worship Allah as Odin and get close to him are the coming days you'd be in sha Allah the start of those days maybe will be on
Wednesday. That's that's the prediction, but following Sharla your local authorities and deciding those days, but to get ready for them to anticipate to get excited and energized about that is our responsibility now.
Well, if we if we know what the virtue of those days are, what are we going to get from them? insha Allah with the prophets, Allah Islam used to do during those days, then inshallah that is going to prepare us for what is going to happen then. Because Subhana Allah, unlike Ramadan, I, as I'm going to say, inshallah explain and will cite the evidence.
Those days, right are the best days of the
actual let's let's get into it. And that explaining the virtue of those days the Prophet sallallaahu send them he said, Ma'am, in a in an anonymous Saudi who are humble fee hidden a layman had a there are no days where good deeds are more beloved to Allah than in those days, the days of good hedger. So they said, of course, oh prophet of Allah, not even Jihad for the sake of Allah. He said, not even Jihad for the sake of Allah with one exception, he says, except for someone who leaves his home with his money and wealth and comes back with nothing mean he is martyred, he dies, he attains Shahada is that is the only exception, where an act outside of those days is better than an act
inside those days. Other than that, even a regular Jihad where a person does not lose their life is less and in reward than good deeds and the days of that hedger.
So that tells you, and the journey is one of the best things that you can do. You can because you're risking your life. And you're risking your wealth and risking, you know, never coming back to your family all of that unless noted, appreciates, and rewards immensely for that. But he said that those days, those nine days of a bad actually 10 days of a bad that. He said some a lot he was in them a lot if you do something in them, Allah will love it more than if you do it outside. So that's why these days are the best days of the year.
And again to someone that automatically contrast those days with Ramadan, and say that the days of the hijab are better than the days of Ramadan. But the nights of Ramadan are better than the nights of the Hindu we're talking about the line for first 10 of their agenda last 10 nights of Ramadan, which which is better. This had been the last nights of Ramadan last 10 nights of Ramadan are better than ruhija because later to Qatar is there. But the days of the hedger are better than the days of Ramadan. Now the irony here is that we give all of our attention to Ramadan. And this deserves that attention. But we don't give enough attention to their hijab, even though the days of their hijab
better than the days of Ramadan. And there is a reason for that. What's the reason? The reason is that in Ramadan, there is a bad data that is collected, everybody's doing it and it affects our life and routine. That's why we feel it because in Ramadan, what happens? Everybody's fasting.
Everybody, your neighbor, you your wife, your children, your parents, everybody's so it affects everybody
into hedger, you may decide not to do anything. So it's not going to affect you, you're not going to feel any change, plus the burden of Ramadan which has an obligation, so you have to do it. When you start fasting, it changes your entire schedule and routine. So you feel the impact, whereas invalid hedger if you choose to fast we'll talk about that in sha Allah. You may be the only one who's fasting and you may decide not to fast. So it takes actually more effort to be closer to a lot on road hedger than it does in Ramadan.
In the midst of doing these plus a days, but I'm unsure about praying with social distancing, and if this is allowed
Okay shall shall answer that question, inshallah by praying with social distance, inshallah, and you can ask in sha Allah questions live and if I catch it in sha Allah, I'll answer it. So it is more of a challenge, more of a challenge to prayer to fast, or to pray, or to be closer to Allah Isaiah during the days of the hidden, that's why we need to do more, push ourselves more, because those who are around us may not be doing that. So it's up to you and me up to you and me to realize how important they are. And then to follow through and apply that by worshiping align those days. So the first thing here is that Allah zildjian at told us prophets a lot It was sent him that if you do
something here during those days, that Allah will love it so much more than any time in the rest of the year. So this is an opportunity. That is if you want it to fast read the Koran make do I remember a lot as though gel give sadaqa. And you want a lot to multiply that
so many times it says this is your opportunity if you wanted to make up for the rest of the year, if you wanted to let to forgive sins, if you wanted simply to be closer to Allah, if you wanted to change your heart if you wanted your art to be accepted if you had a problem, and you want to see if you can somehow get closer to Allah so it can be fixed, you're coming upon the best days of the year. So if you give them all of you, Allah zero will give you something back. So if get if you give it all all you have, allows it will give you something back in the hereafter. Meaning that if your intention if my intention is proper in the Hereafter, and in the dunya, as well, at least in a
transformation that you feel as you get closer to him subhanho wa Taala because these are special days, and why are these special days? First of all, Allah chooses whatever days he wants, and he makes them special, and he deposits in them. His blessings, his LACMA multiplication of Hashanah. He does that as he chooses places on this earth. And he blesses some more than others. And he deposits more blessings in some than others. Same thing with these days, why are they special? And even as days more special and memorable than they say the Automat said, well, lo alum is because there's so much a Bader that takes place during those days that it does not happen collectively, okay, like in
all of them, does not happen outside of those days. So those days can have fasting that people won't be fasting. And those days, they were sold out, obviously. And in those days, there is Amara and hedge. Hedge doesn't happen any other time except that time. So there's only one hedge. And there's also the old here, the sacrifice, the animal sacrifice, they're seeing all these are combined in one time. And it does not happen at any other time outside of their hedges. So because of that a law student loves that loves those days more than any other throughout the year.
And also added to the virtue of that here that takes us to the day of arafah
where it is in that day what Allah has revealed to His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Elio merkmale Tula Kadena comm today I've completed your religion for you.
And it is that day which is actually out of is also counted as a day of aid. Not aid where you're not allowed to fast it but a day of aid the day of commemoration Okay, I did they have joy? Because as it is recorded in the Hadith, one of the people of the book came to the prior to the Allahu anhu and he said that I that was revealed and given to Muslims if it was given to us, we would celebrate that day. He says what what did what is this, Ayana will help us. So that person the Jewish person from the people book, he said, Leo macromolecular, convenor calm today have completed your religion for you. He says, I know when this was revealed, it was revealed on the day of alpha, and it was a
So it actually was a special day. So a lot as though Gil revealed to his prophet and to this oma that he had completed this religion, and he is happy and satisfied with it. As a path as a religion as a way of life. Now it's complete and that good news came on the day of arafah, as significant as the day whenever we all gather, to pray to Allah azza wa jal to ask for forgiveness for the sins to be wiped out. The day of arafah is that day, so it's a very special day as we will see inshallah, what happens on that day. I'll tell you in sha Allah shortly. But Allah chose that day and that month, for the delivery of that message for the completion of the religion of Islam, which be
hamdulillah any Praise be to Allah as though Dell we are part of and you're enjoying the blessings you're enjoying
The Sharia then a lot given to us prophets, a lot of audio was sent them and delivered to him and that proclamation, you've received it too, and you're living it. So that's an AMA. Okay, that's an AMA. And why did that?
Learn a Jewish man say that to own photography alone. And with that if this area was given to us, we would celebrate that day, because he knows the significance of having a completed religion.
You do not know, I'm going to tell you that we do not appreciate the fact of having a completed religion because we hadn't lived maybe having to deal with a religion that was incomplete was supposed to expire. But hasn't.
That we didn't allow it to expire. That is the religion of the people know the book was supposed to end and they should oppose to move to next profit, but they did not. So they have to hold on to a religion that was supposed or Sharia that is supposed to expire. And it's difficult. It's incomplete. It's it's not does not accommodate life. They'd have to exit from it to be able to live. But the religion of Islam is so complete that it guides you wherever you want to go. Whatever you want to do, whatever your problem is, the guidance is there in the Koran, and then the sooner that's a completed religion, so they know what it means, or we may or may not appreciate it. So it's an AMA
that we should thank Allah for that he had given us something that is complete. We don't need to go and look somewhere else, even though some of us do, but we don't need to go and look somewhere or somewhere else because everything is there behind the origin. Now,
also Allah xojo swore by them in the Quran. Well federally, what I add in ash, you swore by the 10 days of good hedger, as it says in the Tafseer, those are when Alesis swears by the dot, and the 10
is that those 10 have a 10 overhead Yo, which tells you that they are very significant and important to Allah azzawajal and they should be important to us. So now when you're going to enter the hedgeye, you're entering the best days, the best days, what are you supposed to do in the days of their hedger?
Now, in the honey that we quoted now, when he sets a lot he was in them, there are no days where good deeds are more beloved to Allah than those days.
So he says that good deeds are beloved to Allah do this, this hadith tells you that all good deeds
are to be an eyesore commanded to perform them during those days because he says, I'm a new silent whatever it is, I'm an old silent, a righteous good deed. Allah loves it in that day. So that includes Of course, repentance from sin, avoiding sin for the sake of Allah zoton whatever that sin is praying. So now I mean the five daily prayers on time, the sooner prayer
all these are included reading of the Quran. And I was going to recommend insha Allah that we start thinking about the nine days of their hedger as a mini Ramadan, like a small Ramadan.
So what what what did we do in Ramadan? Or in Ramadan I used to read the Quran every single day I'll try to finish the Koran and Ramadan I used to remember a lot in Ramadan I used to do this this, so take whatever you used to do in Ramadan, and do it in those days including daily reading of the Quran and if it is possible, for some of us in sha Allah to finish the entire for an in those nine days. Let's try to do that, if possible, right.
So reading of the Quran,
and the Quran, Allah azza wa jal, Vicar of Allah, because in the Hadith
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, Have you ever recorded right? He says fact the roofie hiner minute really what the community with me. So it says these are special days blessed days that Allah loves facts who say often in them at li la ilaha illAllah what could be a lot more about what that means Alhamdulillah meaning the dhikr of Allah zoji generally, and one day when it starts when those days when the day starts for method, okay? Then that is the time when you start remembering a lot as urgent throughout those days and nights. Every time before the Salah, after the Salah when you're walking when you're cooking going to work coming back from school, remembering Allah as origin.
And when do when do we end with that when does it stop? It goes all the way till the 13th to the 13th which is you know, after eight, the eight is 10th. Then you have the 11th 12th and the 13th goes all the way to the 13th where are you remembering Allah, especially take a beat
that can be so that that is also a sinner. That's when the first day of the head just starts you engage in technical
Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Kabira Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. You just engage in that we are by yourself as you're going as you're coming when you're
standing to take the bus, whatever it is, right? But you engage in tech Be it and that the bill covers anytime is not limited to a specific time, or a specific place. Anytime you make the computer in sha Allah and you remember Allah zodion, add to it in sha Allah, he said, delinda Allah Illallah what that means saying Alhamdulillah so increasing our remembrance of Allah as origin. Also, that happens on the day of alpha, but I'm going to inshallah wait for the day of alpha until after I talk about fasting. So let's talk about fasting first, and then I'll move on inshallah to the day vada. So he said, the day Good things that we can do, there is
repentance, and staying away from sin. So now on time, the five daily prayers as soon as possible Sadat talks about a reading of the Quran said, let's see if we can try to finish the entire four on if possible. So that talked about the dhikr of Allah as the remembering Allah as much as we can. And now let's talk about fasting, fasting. So it's reported from the prophets a lot It was sent out from the wife of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, that one hour some of the days that a Prophet would fast, or the nine of
the nine of the hedger meaning the nine days of their hedger. So one of the days that, or one of the let's see, column seasons are very bad, he used to fast during the nine days of good hygiene. Now, since somebody asked about this, there is another Hadith where I shall the Allah Allah said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not fast, the 10 days of the ledger. So now you have two heads, that seem to be contradicting each other one that says that the Prophet fasted, the other says that the Prophet did not fast them,
which one should we take? Now the scholars were in this like, ignore hotjar and Noah, we say there is no contradiction between them. Why this is because I usually described what she saw and what she knew.
Whereas another wife of the Prophet salon, he was sitting them described something else that she saw and she knew, and the one who affirmed something takes precedence over the one who has denied it, or did not have knowledge of it, meaning what meaning that I shall do and I said he did not fast that is as far as she knew, when she was with him, so a lot It was him she didn't see that he was fasting. And he has the prophets Allah sent him there will be times where he said a lot he was Ceylon would not be fasting surgeon days because he's busy with something else. He'd be busy with something else.
Okay, inshallah, I'm just reading one question here. Is there any evidence that the companions left the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and their work to focus on a battery for those 10 days during
during just the daytime? Okay.
So I shot all the alarms on her, did not see that the profit solid cinema was fast and as I said, the profit would sometimes not fast on those days, because he was doing or busy with something else, he had other priorities. But another way for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saw that he was fasting both during those days. So which one do you take? They They say the one who knows the one who affirmed something takes precedence? He because he has or she has with her Ziad to aim she knows more. And because she knows more, okay? her opinion, or her observation is the more valid one. So yes, the prophet at times would not fast the 10 days of pickup, but other times Yes, he would fast
them. So is it sooner to fast them we say yes, it is soon that the faster one because this hadith that says He fasted
another because he said that the good deeds are beloved to Allah in them isn't fasting part of what we can call a good deed? He says yes. So it's not just slid out. It's not just Vicar but fasting as well. And because also we have the fasting Of The Day of rfl recommended by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so we that's why we say that yes, it is recommended that you fast if it is within your ability if you cannot fast the entire night
What you can do is just fast let's say Mondays and Thursdays until you come to alpha right or if you cannot just fast video which is the ninth so levels right so the level the minimum inshallah life you can. There's some people who cannot festivals, that's fine. But he says if at a minimum, what is it that you should fast so fast that if you want to do more fast Mondays and 30 Thursdays in addition to auto within the night, you want to do even more fast the entire night.
And maybe bitten into asserted by fasting that inshallah will motivate you refocus you so that you would worship Allah as a surgeon more will give more of yourself to this worship to these days to this a better because you're fasting so that typically frees your time up so you can do other things in Shalane refocuses you, like you were focuses your mind on worship of Allah azza wa jal
the question here in Sharla so I don't forget it is there evidence that the companions
would leave the prophets a lot he would send them or companions leave Rasulullah solo send them and their work to focus on a battle for those 10 days during that time. I don't know of any evidence that they had left the profits of lawyers for a bad companions would do this. But is there evidence, for instance, that during the seasons of a bad that people would leave their work just to focus on the worship of Allah as Odin? There are some examples from the setup, right? Where if it is a season of a bear that they see, which will completely be focused on a diner, some, okay, now understand that not everybody can do this. Like especially modern life, it doesn't fit into our modern life
where people have to go to work every day. And they can't take a vacation in Rome, Ivana Ingrid hedger, right, some people can. So that's what we say that if you are someone who can without harming yourself, your career, your family, and all of that, and you can take a vacation and simply just give you all all that you have, to the worship of Allah during those days, by all means, go ahead and do it, because that's an investment.
That is an investment, that's better than taking time off and going on a vacation. Okay? So if you can do this, go ahead and do it. If you cannot, don't feel guilty, that you cannot simply what Allah wants from you is to do your best, and this is your best, and this is my best. That's it. So there are some people right there are some self piano and they said, like, say during the debate, it says when the days when these days would come is no one will be able to, you know, get meaning meet up with him.
No one would be able to talk to him why because this is simply engrossed in a beta just focused on it, that you can't even you know, like, you know, get few minutes with him. So it's possible, right? It's possible but you got to observe what observe my level and your level at this time. Like Don't Don't be guilted into feeling that I have to spend every single minute and I think in Ramadan, we talked about this I have to spend every single minute
of the day in the worship of Allah azza wa jal where it is difficult for me to do this. And you feel that you have to and you end up you know, resenting the whole experience know, what you want to do is do what is what what is within your means in mind.
So set set realistic goals,
write realistic goals, right? If it's something that is difficult, if it's difficult for, for me to read one third of the haoran in one day, I shouldn't plan for that, right? I shouldn't plan and make it I'm going to try to do that. If it's difficult for me, simply, if it's what's within my capacity, that will leave me wanting more is to read one gist of the Quran and then do other good things, then just do that. If it's three, just have the Koran and then do other good things, then just do that. So consider where you are. And don't put too much burden on yourself as I said, so that you end up hating the worship of Allah because you simply have taken too much. So fasting, we go back in sha
Allah to fasting we talked about that that fasting is also recommended. From one from the first all the way to the ninth, of course, it's haram to fast on the 10th day, and you're not allowed to fast on that 11th 12th and the 13th these are called AI machines. So all these days are days of aid. So you're not allowed to fast the day of alpha is extra special. That day of alpha is extra special. Sex was special for fasting extra special for that extra special for being freed from hellfire. So three things that we'll be talking about inshallah fasting the day of arafah
so the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said so young, we all made out of the accessible you can feel Sen. maldi or Kadima okay Maha is the day of alpha forgives the sins of the past and the coming year. That's just what one single day when you fast it the fast thing of the past and that coming year, so two years, two years and that is because the day of alpha is a very special day
and wonder what are people in hatch are doing
and say I want you to see how Allah zengin is connecting you with hedge and most people in the world today right are not able to perform hedge this year. And extraordinary here I would not go be able to go to hedge this year.
And most of us, of course, right cannot go to Hajj every year. That's impossible. But even though you cannot set foot in Mecca, but in spirit, right, you're connected with what is happening over there because on the day of alpha, when people are standing there and asking Allah for forgiveness and asking Allah as the origin for you know, a salvation from Hellfire and Allah what happens on that day is Allah yet no, he comes close to those who are worshipping him
in that location for me, you bet he human better than he boasts about what they're doing. Before the angels of Allah sojourn here, Hulu elaborate the idea that God should have an Oprah it says, Look at my slaves, how would they have come to me? should have done right full of dust to Oprah filled with dust unkempt,
right. Look how they've come What is it that they want? They want my forgiveness. I make you witnesses that I've given them. So Allah loves this show of humility before him and request that I ALLAH forgive you ALLAH forgive in that state that reflects our need, that we have nothing. And even the clothes that are honest are so simple. Okay, we have nothing honest and we have nothing with us. The only thing that we are coming here to ask me Allah is for you to forgive us. We traveled so far. Allah loves that. Allah loves that day. And he sets a lot of Silla mermen yom in October and you have to follow lo fi now Amina not even Naomi out of it says there is no more today where Allah is
going to free people from Hellfire than the day of alpha.
and in Europe says this is not only for those who are there as those who are there and everybody else that there is no more day what Allah is going to free and save people from Hellfire, then the day of alpha that is so the day that has the more single Okay, number of people who will be saved from Hellfire is what? out of them
that day. And it's not just if you're there if you're there, and if you're here. So if you are there, what happens, you have your own a bad day.
So if I'm here, what is my bad? How am I getting close to Allah? zodat? How? How can I receive that salvation from Hellfire? One of the things is to do is fast.
So fasting is for the data for the people who are outside hedge, they're not performing hedge. If you're performing How do you not supposed to fast? And there's also because the question came about this. The prophets Allah sent him who was one in hedge and people did not know was he fasting or not. So one of the mothers of the believers his wife sent a cup of milk and he's using them to get his hand his hand and he drank it in plain sight so that people will see that he was in fasting because he was performing hajj. So when you're doing hot you're not too fast out of it because you need your energy but we do not go and doing hedge you fast and it's recommended that you fast so
that's one thing in Charlotte to plan for too fast for the sake of Allah with the intention that I want my sins of the past year in the coming year to be forgiven inshallah. So that's one thing. What is it what is what fasting
Okay, the second thing is we talked about salvation of hellfire. That was the second thing that alone will save people from Hellfire and that all of us are candidates for this even though we're not performing hydro candidates for it. The third thing is to
do on that day, because the people in Alaska okay.
In Shall I won't forget your question. Yeah.
The day you refer, inshallah, yeah, as people over there are asking Allah and you are also going to ask Allah.
So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said, Hey, what do I do? I will make the best of them. Is that out? of out of them?
The best of dog is the dog of the day of autofill. What is what does that mean? That it is likeliest to be what accepted? is if the best, it's likely is to be accepted. So now you think about inshallah, what is it that you want to ask? Allah asked him about the hereafter and the dunya whatever you want to ask things that you need to hear for yourself, for your family, ask and things you need for the hereafter. Don't think Don't forget about those ask Allah for that as well. Okay? So highroad da, da yada. And he continues the Hadith and he says, and the best that I and the prophets before me have said is, let you know hey, Lola, the hula sharika lahu mahalo called
Alhamdulillah Allah cliche in
the best that I the statement that I and the prophets before me have said is La ilaha illallah wa sallahu la hora muku. Allah will hamdu wahoo Allah coalition Kadir says the prophets Allah you send them have said both in the same sentence. It is a hint that try to say that on that day
Try to say that statement that either in a lot to the end, try to say it on the day of arafah and try to see the vicar that Allah loves throughout those days
throughout those days, so whatever they could have, especially Subhan Allah will be Hamdi de la la la, la sharika lahu. Dr. mercola hamdulillah colletion added that type of do I try to say it often during those days? Because they will give you a lot of Hasina, they will raise a lot of sin. And if you say it in those days, that will even count and would mean even more. Now,
is it okay to make a list beforehand that wants to ask Allah for or should it be done spontaneously? Make a list? Make a list if you don't want to forget? And I want to add to make this this this this this right. Yeah, and if there is some evidence of some, you know, pious predecessors before who we wouldn't they used to go to Hajj
or something like that, right? They would have a list of people that they want to pray for this person and this person and this person and that person so that they would remember. So if you want to have a list so that you don't forget, make a list, inshallah, that's fine. inshallah, that works. Now, when we when we start the day of arafah, there is a thick beard that is called a specific type of beer. Or time specific, that could be a thick layer, which is what take a beer after its Salah.
It begins from the edge of the dawn, the Federal prayer, the dawn prayer on the day of arafah. Right, okay, so you say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, that whatever form right, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar will Kabira what Allahu Akbar, Allah God, when he laid him whatever form, right, there's no specific form to it. But it's that beautiful alliance of gcuid said, after your precision after your pre vote after your prayer, so the memorization and so on, all the way to the onset of the 13th day, and then you'll stop after because then the days will be over. So it goes from the ninth to the 10th, the 11th 12th and the 13th in Sharla. So there is this time specific tech B. And
there's the general tech bit that is not limited to any particular time. So you can say at any time. So that's the day of alpha and what you can do in the day of October the 10th. The 10th what do you do on the 10th? We have two things on the 10th Okay, at least right of course the other event that but at least two new things on the 10th one is the sacrifice and the other is the setup so that you know
of course a lot of it comes first. So sacrifice right you must have planned planned it before. So if you're going to sacrifice is going to be after selected eight. So you pray and then what sacrifice or if you've sent it somewhere else to for someone to sacrifice on your behalf, you can do the you can do that inshallah. But for the sacrifice if you decide to sacrifice when the days of the hit just start when the first day of that head just starts you need to abstain from white cutting your nails and hair. It's like like being in a state of Iran although not completely you can call it like a small Iran because in the state of Iran when you're doing head trauma, you have to abstain from a
lot more things than that, just that right. But here just simply you don't cut your nails and you don't cut your hair for how long from the first day of the hedger if you have decided to sacrifice before from the first days of the hedger until you sacrifice
until you sacrifice if you have sent it somewhere else to be sacrificed. You have to estimate when will they sacrifice
1111 while they sacrifice it will be on the 10th will be on the 10th maybe
is it on the 11th maybe if you want to really be safe, you'll wait till the 13th if you really want to be safe, okay? Or if you have a better estimate that Yeah, I know that we're going to do it the 10th or the 11th wait till the 11th inshallah so that you will say you're safe so that you do not cut your nails or your hair right here your hair in your head or mustache for men or anything else you don't pluck it out. Okay, don't do any of that.
ensures you save you wait until actually it happens in Sharla
How can we do it from Canada? How can we do what
sacrifice? Just explain to me inshallah, what is it that exactly you're asking for is the sacrifice.
So that happens right? So the sacrifice happens on the 10th but you can still do it on the 11th 12th and the 13th you have till also or just you know till mother again before mother because once at that mother, it starts that's another day and you cannot do it before the sun. Okay. And of course elaborate that a pray and a prayer is highly recommended. Highly recommended, right? Of course you need to observe the regulations robbed of now of social distancing and where it needs to be prayed.
etc, etc, but wherever and whenever it is possible in sha Allah to go out for a salah and to pray to Allah azza wa jal
and so on. So, the question is about the sacrifice, is it for the hijab or anyone can do it? No, anyone can do it. So the oltenia struck amended, it's recommended, right? If you have enough money, especially if you think about it these days, right, the difficulties that, you know, a lot of the world is experiencing financially, and a lot of people do not have enough. So if you have 100, if you have enough money, and you can spare, this is a great opportunity for you, you know, to give so that other people can eat. So if you're in living, let's say, he's asking
the question or is asking them, they're from Canada, you can find an organization here in Sharla.
You can find them even online or them in locally, and you can contact them and they can slaughter on your behalf locally, and distribute the me or they can do it overseas, right? Either way, inshallah it's available, and you can do it in sha Allah, and it's recommended, it's recommended, if you have enough money, it's recommended that you do this. And of course, the day of aid, inshallah is a day of celebration, and a day of joy and all of that, but notice how
our days of aid always follows a great religious occasion, a great religious opportunity for a loss forgiveness, because the day of it comes right after the heels of the day of artifacts a day where what you do is, you engage in a bad day and you pray to Allah and you try to give like, so that day you got up in Charlotte, try to plan it, if you can, try to plan that day where you're going to do as much as you can have a bad day. And do and because Allah is just think of yourself as if you are
in order for actually an affair, to give more of yourself, insha Allah to this due to praying, and all and all of that now, I mean, of course, I'm saying this without harming your family, because you don't want to like harm your family.
And any, because you want to, you know, engaging in bad or harming your family at the same time, you don't want to do this, so give everybody their right, inshallah. So what kind of animal can be sacrificed in shallick, sheep, goats?
What is it cows, like shares, all of that inshallah is are eligible for sacrifice. So just contact
those organizations, or those who slaughter because you're not going to do it yourself, right is always happens to somebody else, even if you are going to say yourself slaughter is somebody else, we're going to be arranging that for you, you contact them in sha Allah, and they will have got a kind of the guidelines, which animals what age what they're supposed to have, where they're supposed to be free of, they will have that inshallah, so you don't have to do all the details, somebody else inshallah will do that on your behalf. Especially if you're sending it overseas, you just simply pay the money, somebody else is taking care of it in Sharla on your behalf. So
these are the days of the hedgeye insha Allah and this is what I wanted to say about them. Now inshallah, just as a recap, and as a motivation, in short, what things are not going to happen if we're not going to plan and things are not going to happen if we don't really believe and we're nor are we not really excited about it. So we have to be excited. And we have to excite others, make them excited about what's going to happen, what's going to come that these are really special days, what are you going to do? What am I going to do? plan your day? So of those if these days inshallah start on Wednesday, as the prediction is, right, if they start on Wednesday, what will I be doing on
Wednesday? How would I start Will I be fasting get ready for it? While I'd be reading the Koran, what time? How much inshallah, do I want to finish? So if I start when's Wednesday, when will it be one will go to HIV? One will lead out of IB. So how much will I be able to finish? If I'm reading the Quran? What dhikr of Allah do I have? They want to say, okay, go find your books in sha Allah or go go write down what do you want to say? What kind of do I want to read? Write down what do you do how you want to read? Who else I want to invite so that they can also do this as I'm doing it as well because they will be you will be rewarded for that because you've guided them to it.
My my first thing that they have thought of what is my intention for it, if I'm doing any harm, I'm gonna stay away from it insha Allah because I don't want to be dealing with how long in time or Allah's mercy is descending. Now I want to remember a lot as the origin so I should remember put on my agenda. Remember a lot more, more tech be more later a lot more at hamdu Lillah Allahu Akbar, okay. And try to remind yourself and go back, go back to your journal, go back to your list and read Okay, did I do this? Oh, I forgot to do these things. Go back to them. So then Sharla you'll keep reminding yourself every day that these are the one I want to do. And remember to always keep
praying, always keep asking Allah as urgent
The culmination of all of it, right? The prize is at the end, you know how later to content is right at the end, you don't know exactly when, but it's right at the end that you've thought of is right at the end. So that is what is waiting for you and past it and pray with the intention that I want my daughter to be accepted. And I want to be free from hellfire. Okay, now, I don't see any more questions, but I remember the question about Salah
Shave, can we fast? Can you fast the last three days? The last three days of the ledger? I mean that like the last three days of the
10. Right. That's that's how I understand your question. Can we fast the last three days you can fast the ninth and the eighth and the seven you can do that. Right. So you can fast the ninth and the eighth and the seventh? If this is what your question is definitely you cannot fast the 10th and the 11th and the 12th and the 13th are also excluded right are also included. So of course Yeah, you can fast you can fast any in whatever kind of arrangements you want. You can fast the first day and then take a break and fast the fourth day, take a break and come fast the ninth day, whatever arrangements all of that is available for you to fast Okay, so if you simply just want to fast the
nine eight and seven by all means inshallah fast you fasted from that nine days and you fasted the most important one among them, which is that they have arafa.
The question that was there is
about Salah. It says, I really want to go and pray in congregation in Jamaica, but I'm worried about social distancing.
I think you want it The question is, is it valid or not? Like it's solid valid. While we're not really close to each other? We're not shoulder to shoulder for two foot. So we're far apart two meters apart. Is it valid? Yes, it is valid. It is valid, because yes, coming together is an obligation, right coming together is an obligation. But the fact is that there are reasons are forcing us to stay apart. Okay, so those are extraordinary circumstances that did not negate the fact that we are praying jamaa do not negate the fact that we are praying Juma. There's kind of like a precedence for it, if you can say,
okay, and I'll explain that
there is a precedence for it, which is that what, sometimes you are distant, okay? Or you're separated from the area of the masjid. Right. So you're not really behind the soft, exactly. Okay.
Because, for instance, you know, the lines are full, or the message is full, so you're praying behind, so you're not really close to each other your distance from the masjid, but you still outside the state and follow what the person is saying. Or a precedence for it. Also, if someone if you come to the SFX, to the to the role, and it's completely full, and you're standing by yourself behind, just by yourself, and you don't want to pull anybody right from the role, because it's going to create a gap. So you're standing by yourself. So you pray, very praying, out of necessity by yourself. In one in one line, you're the only line person in that line, but you're still in Gemma.
But that's not our choice. That's out of necessity. Why? Because you can simply join the role, it's completely full. And you don't want to grab anybody from that role, because you'd create a gap in it. So you're standing by yourself. So there's precedents for it, right? So we're not doing this, and many scholars have spoken about this, we're not doing this.
Out of choice, we're doing it out of necessity. And once that, once that necessity is gone, we'll go back in sha Allah, and to the kind of regular regular formation in sha Allah, why not simply pray individually because the Prophet ordered not to fill gaps in the light.
Why not simply pray individually? I did not understand that. Why not pray individually? You mean like pray individually at home? to not leave a gap?
Okay, why not pray individually because the Prophet ordered not to fill the gaps in your mind. Okay, I still don't get it. I still did not get that. That is any when we're in the Mr. Together, and though we're not side by side, okay, we're still following the same amount out of necessity. We're separating from each other. That still is considered. Are you pray at home? Well, I mean, you can pray at home. The problem is that now the problem is that the difference is
when you pray at home, you don't get the extra. Now, I mean, I want to say here, we're talking about males or females, right. If it's a female, I would say it's better that you pray at home.
We're talking about it's females. I'd say in these circumstances, I would recommend that you just simply pray at home. It's just easier, right? And it's also you're not going to expose yourself or others to the likely infection. So there's no reason for you to go out.
Okay, I understand what you say. But if you go into the masjid right for men,
the there's an added benefit there. What is the added benefit that you're taking steps to go to the masjid that you praying together with an email? Yeah, I understand. Now your question, you say pray in the masjid in the meet individually? Not in congregation, right?
No, but you then you're missing the reward of the congregation. Because you can still maintain.
Because you can still maintain a portion of the congregational prayer, not all of it, but a portion of it. That is still I'm listening to an Imam, I'm still following one email, we're still all praying at the same time, even though not side by side, but at least at the same time, so a portion of Gemini is fulfilled, whereas another portion has to be dropped, but another portion is fulfilled. So I don't have to sacrifice all of it. Right? I don't have to sacrifice all of it. Just as in a bad or critical types of a bad if I cannot pray standing, and don't decide that I'm not praying at all. I say okay, I'm going to sit and pray. Right? Which obligation is greater tomorrow? Of course.
So premium congregation, for those who are saying that guy a congregational prayer is an obligation that is a greater obligation than system fee as straightening the lines or standing side by side? Yes. So the Dhamma is a greater obligation and there's greater benefit in it. So just like Sunnah, right? Which is more important to perform the Salah as a whole or stand in the Salah for Salah as a whole. So the same thing shot so that the question inshallah bear
What if it is? The 13th is a Monday and one usually fast on Monday should be fast or not? No. So if it's Monday, it's good question. inshallah. If Monday is the 13th
if Monday let's suppose hypothetically, if Monday is the 13th and you have a habit of fasting on the 13th should you fast we say Oh, I'm sorry habit of fasting on Monday, and Monday happens to be 13th of the Hindu should you fast we say no, absolutely not. Right, because that takes precedence. That that takes precedence and there's a question from the sister I did not forgot about forget about the wise with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is as similar to eat drink only after the prayer. I mean, before we perform the prayer, we cannot eat drink. Okay, inshallah. So the sooner I got your question, the sooner is what the sooner is that you delay eating till after the sun up and that you
eat from your own hair.
Right, you eat from what you sacrifice, that's the sooner Okay, now, you may not have access to what you're going to sacrifice or maybe you're going to sacrificing sacrifice in another country or later on so you'll not be able to eat from it. We say just eat anything then after the Salah. So if possible, right? If possible, if this is no hardship on you, okay, or endure and on your family, then yeah, don't eat it. Don't miss any eat. Okay, drinking. Yeah, you can show by eating right? Do not eat till
after the soda. Okay? If there's hardship on you, you don't need to do this in shock, right? Because just it's just simply sitting there but if you can delay it right, what are you going to pray? And then once you pray, insha Allah you can eat something then do that in show
that a question of the system shall us without and forget about it, which is stuck at a time as you said, Can you explain again the difference in the Hadith and which one takes precedence? So there's one Hadith that says the Prophet did not fast, the nine days of the hijab, another heading that says He fasted them. So we have what seems to be like a contradiction, which one takes precedence? Now, when the scholars come to heads that seemingly contradict each other, they have ways where they were able to give precedence to one or the other, say which one is more authentic than the other? They both authentic, which one
kind of came before the other? And did what did one abrogate the other or not? There are ways right for them to reconsider this. One of the ways here that they've reconciled this hadith where it's one says he did not fast the others was said He fasted is to say that one wife of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not see him fasting. So she expressed or conveyed what she saw. He didn't fast. Another said He fasted. So she conveyed what she saw. So she may say that I'll move back the one that affirms
an incident, MOCA Allah nafi takes precedence over the one who negates it and move on to another nafi that is the one who had affirmed that He fasted
knows more about the Prophet than the one who said he did not do because when you simply say he did not do it, I have no knowledge that he has done it. The person says who says, Yes, he did. He says, I have knowledge that he has done it
says What is he saying says I didn't see him fasting. He didn't fast. I didn't see him fasting. Somebody says I saw him fasting. So he said, okay, the one who saw the Prophet fasting has extra knowledge. And because they have extra knowledge, we're going to take that. So that's, that's the reason why they say, yeah, we're going to accept the Hadith that he said, somebody said that He fasted those nine days. Why? Because that is extra knowledge of another wife of the Prophet had, that he did not have all the love on him. Hmm. Right. And that's common, right? That's common, if somebody negates something and other affirms it. One of the ways is just to see the law firms has
more knowledge than the one who negates.
The restrictions are not cutting the hair for those who offer up here, is this applicable only to hair on the head are also hair on the skin. So it's hard on the skin, all of it. Right? All your body just like in Iran.
So when you're in a state of how long do you cut any hair on your body? None? None? Not at all. Right? So you don't cut any hair, beard, head, hand, feet, whatever, right? None of that right is supposed to be cut or pluck. And this, by the way, in shoreline is for the person who's sacrificing the person, kind of that the person who's paying for it,
not for the entire household. And so if the man is doing it, it's not also for his wife and his children and his parents. And no, no, it's just that person who's sacrificing and paying for it. That's the person who does what abstains from cutting the hair, in sha Allah and flipping the names.
Yeah, and by the way, in sha Allah, that one, one thing in sha Allah, that person can put it in their intention, when you're sacrificing, you can sacrifice on behalf of yourself, and anyone else that you want to put in, as it as in you in that Nia in that intention. That is this is on my behalf on behalf of my family, let's say this is on my behalf on behalf of my family on my parents, live or deceased, right on my behalf on behalf of my self and my family and my deceased relatives. So you can put others right include them in that intention, you can do that in sha Allah meaning that you want reward also to go to them as well. So you can do that with that sacrifice. inshallah.
I don't see any more questions.
But in case insha Allah you have more questions about those days, especially as you start planning for them. And you want to ask and shall just send me your questions and in sha Allah Allah, I'll answer them before the start of the pages I would like to collect all of them and either I'll answer them in writing or just you know, make a video inshallah go online live and answer your all your questions, at least it will be available recording inshallah, so they can view it later. So since I don't see any more questions, and Siobhan actually says that everything that I wanted to say, I asked a lot as the agenda here in conclusion that a lot as it enables us, and gives us the energy to
pray and to do whatever he loves on that on those days and stay away from her. So Allah Allah, Allah, Allah miniart hamara amenia Giada de como este we are about alameen, to make us of those who are forgiven on those days, to make us of those who are able to fast and pray and give sadaqa and read the Quran and remember you often and ask you a lot to give us sincere repentance, like give us sincere repentance, and you know, as sincere avoidance of sin, so that we don't upset you on those days, we asked you to make us of those who fast on the day of offer sincerely, and pray to you sincerely, and are saved from hellfire. And we asked you that for us, and our children, our parents,
our families, our loved ones and the home of Mohammed solo and he was sitting in my car but allow me to enable us to ask you for the best of the hereafter and the best of this life. And we asked you to help to protect us from the worst of the hereafter. And the worst of this life was fueled by me to make use of those who remember you often all the time, returned to your often and all the time we asked you to make us of those whose hearts are sincere, whose hearts are clean and sound. And he Allah asked you to make us give us bodies that are easy in worshiping you they are lenient and responsive when they want to worship You, but not when sending and disobeying We ask Allah mean, to
make us to help us remember everything that we have heard today, and to help us to put that into practice, and to help us to invite others our families so that they would also put that into practice and reward us for our efforts and fill our hearts with joy and meet make these days I mean, but how do we make these days, days that are filled with joy and happiness and comfort in the worship of Allah azza wa jal again, I say discipline
