Let's keep moving, keep moving forward
in Alhamdulillah I want to say I want to start
when I have the villa Himanshu Rory and Hussein our sejati Amina ya da da da da

Howdy howdy Mohammed bin Salman Allahu alayhi wa sallam was shalom old enough to have Hakuna Matata in wakulla Bala akula gonadotrophin
all praise and thanks belong to Allah, the Most High and the Most Merciful, we thank him and we seek His help and aid and we ask Him to forgive us and we seek His refuge from the evil of ourselves and the sins that we commit. Indeed home several like guides, no one can lead astray and also leads astray no one can guide and I've ever witnessed that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone. And then Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his slave and messenger. That best of speech is the book of Allah. And the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the worst of religious matters are those that are innovative, and every religious
innovation is a bit every bit dies. misguidance and every misguidance will be in hellfire.
we, by the grace and mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala are coming upon days.
There are special days in the year.
In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about them,
go to a yummy dounia Yama the best days of the year are the days of the 10. Meaning the 10 days of
the best days of the year are the ones that are going to come upon us be vanilla
and here there's a lesson.
There are lots of kind of what Allah chooses whatever days he wishes and he blesses them and he loves them. And he deposits in them much of his mercy and favors. And there is wisdom behind that.
Because I was a panel what, among many other things he understands human nature well
understands that humanity, those who worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. They need season's opportunities of worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Humanity understands that well, in the business for brides. They have seasons promotions, sales. Well, they're basically selling you the exact same merchandise that was available throughout the year. But when they do is they know that you need something special, something interest, something to grab your attention and focus. So they take advantage of that human nature that is when you have
those who worship Allah subhanho wa Taala could experience the monotony and their worship. They pray every day make every day,
every week, and that after some time, can present some sort of burden or it can become monotonous or routine. Allah subhanho wa Taala understands that variety is important to human nature, as people in the business will understand that variety is important to capture your attention. So our loss of Hannah what's Allah who understands his best presents us with the seasons, here is a season so all you have been worshipping Allah subhana wa tada you can be re energized. You can be refocused. You can regain your enthusiasm. You can ascend in your worship to a loss of power. So if you have reached a certain level in your worship, comes Ramadan, comes down, hijab comes any other day or
time that Allah subhanaw taala had blessed and you can climb higher. And all you who had lapsed between the seasons, had committed injustice against yourself and against others. This season comes to remind you again like the past season to remind you again, then the door of Allah subhanho wa Taala is open and that Allah subhanho wa Taala is willing to bless you again. So Allah tried to you again, brings your attention to him again and tells you how you can come back to him and how much he's willing to give you if you listen and if you follow.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said these are the best days of the year.
And another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says ma'am in a year many analysts have seen a lineman hiding in a young
man in a seminar room or in the la buena de la Marina de la Yeah.
They are no greater days, more beloved days than these days the days of attend another Hadith the prophet SAW Selim said there are no days or good deeds performed in them is better than these days compared to any other day outside.
There is anything that you do. And the 10 days of the puja any good deed is better than a similar deed done outside the days of the puja. Your Salah in them is better than your Salah outside of them. The obligation under voluntary Salah your fasting in them is better than the fasting outside of them.
Your liquor in them your soda in them, whatever good
data loves and you perform during the 10 days of good hedger. It's better than if they performed outside the days of the teacher.
And the Sahaba of the prophets of Allah audio was in them eager to know
and eager to learn, they said oh prophet of Allah, even better than Jihad for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. That is if we worship Allah during these 10 days, would that be even better than the jihad, because they understood that jihad is due to cinammon Islam, the pinnacle of Islam, the highest spot in Islam, so it would be better even than the highest and the best of digital prophet of Allah. And he said it would be better than the highest and the best of deeds in Karachi man, you want to stick him in a mere German daddy cache, excerpt and that's the only exception, except for a man who goes out for jihad. And he loses both his life and his money.
Meaning that a person who goes out for Jihad and comes back safe and sound in money and wealth and in so he could not perform any better than if he would worship Allah subhanho wa Taala during the 10 days.
So why don't you just to take an opportunity and appreciate how much good you can gain the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala if you decide these are special days, and I will take advantage of them.
And you may ask yourself, why are these special days and some of the products some wisdom behind that? Why are they so special in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala they say one reason. One reason is that the good deeds are united.
Those days, more than any other day,
more than any other day, because during the 10, you have had and you have and you have fasting and you have charity and you have animal sacrifice, and you have Vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is not present in any other day or collection of days throughout the year,
throughout the entire year.
And they said to compare they said that the days of their heads
are better than the days of Ramadan even
or better than the days of Ramadan. When I saw Ramadan, they say are better than the nights of good hijab because the last 10 specially because the leader to cut is right there in them in Ramadan. But when you come to the days, day time,
they say there is no better day than the days of the even the days of Ramadan. And here is another lesson for us.
Consider how much energy we put in Ramadan.
How many reminders we sent to you and to each other for the sake of Ramadan? How much planning how much devotion how much we do in Ramadan.
And yet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that these coming days are better than the days of Ramadan. So why do we perform less? Why do we worship Allah subhana wa tada less in them, and you will see the vanilla
and you will be able to distinguish Bismillah as the one who truly is a worshipper of a loss of Hannah who would
no matter who and what does is done around him. And the one who only will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala others around him are doing it. One of the main reasons why we are so energetic in Ramadan is because it's social.
Everybody else is doing it. We've been primed that way. My father, my mother, my sister, my daughter, everybody's doing it. So that is a general motivation. They're doing it so I'm going to do it again. And that's kind of what
but in those days have
a lot of people are not doing that. A lot of people don't care about them a lot of people to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and give them the attention that they need to begin to see the difference between someone who hears the commands of Allah, here's the commands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam understands the prize in them and worships Allah, despite the big people around him, despite what they're doing and what they are done doing their encouragement or discouragement.
He knows what the prophet had said and he follows it. eager to please Allah Subhana, WA Tada, whatever the opportunity is, versus someone who will only do if others are doing will only worship if others are worshiping will only be reminded if others around him reminded. So that is another lesson in them.
And some of them are really marvel at the fact that we don't so literally them despite that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam has said they're the best of days. So we really have to transcend habits
transcend social pressure, or like
and begin to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala because he tells us so at the time, and the place that he's allowed to send them tells us how.
So the best of days are coming upon us.
What can we do in them?
What is so special about them?
One of the special things about that those days is that they have
on the last panel was added loves the day of specifically.
And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says about that day because you have to know why it's important for you to start taking it seriously and to take advantage of it Why? Prophet sallallahu wasallam says Ma'am, in your main article lo fi I didn't mean to not even umihara there is no day where a loss of power data will free more slaves from Hellfire than on the day of alpha.
See, see what he says. There is no other day more blessed day where lots of Hannah without all three more people of Hellfire than in the day when the hula is new
to my yoga
pants, that comes close to the people of America, when they're standing in that spot. He comes close to him and he boasts about them before the angels of Allah subhana wa tada and he says what are they seeking from me? Of course they're seeking a loss forgiveness.
And another hottie these is Tony obrah. They came to me, dusty, disheveled and a loss of Hannah what's Allah loves this surrender and submission and humility before him. They came to him with the dunya they left the entire dunya behind them. And there's only one thing that they're asking Allah subhanho wa Taala on that day when they're asking Allah Allah save us from hellfire. Allah accept this hatch from us, he ALLAH forgive our sins.
That's the thing that they're asking Allah. Allah loves that. And because of that he frees them from Hellfire, but we're not far behind Bismillah and the panorama of Allah subhanho wa Taala is wide. So we can also do things on the day of our her that will also attaches to the ROM of Allah subhana wa tada as we shall see.
And the data out of her by the way,
if we did not know already video or the spot
when you journey all the way to that spot, you are renewing your covenant with a loss of Hannover, what's
the first spot that you inhabited before you had a physical body but you came upon on the face of this earth theonomy
when Allah subhanho wa Taala extracted you and all of humanity from the back of Adam alayhis salaam, and he asked them to build become
the mind not yours. And everybody said, all of us included here cry You are our role in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said he spread them all in the plane of Africa
as the first spot on this earth, that you witness that you were on. So when Allah subhana wa Taala tells you at least once in your lifetime, you come back to it. You're coming back to the same exact first spot, telling a loss of Hannah Montana Baker loam and a baker I am here y'all are responding to your command and renewing your covenant that I have known about knowing that but you are Bellamy and here I am coming asking for forgiveness.
So I leave that with you and show a lot to contemplate and think about it as it is the case in the month of Ramadan. When you understand why you do against and you contemplate your lesson of its lessons, it will further motivate you and attach you to Allah subhanho wa Taala you also have to contemplate and ponder the lessons of Hajj why are you doing it? What can you learn from it.
So being Neela in the second football, we will say or discuss some of the things that we can do when these days and how we can take advantage of them. We ask a lot of panel data to make us of those who truly take advantage of them. I mean, holy holy how there was the Fulani
Wa salli wa sallim wa Sallim
WA, he was
one of the first things that you can do, inshallah, even before these days start
is terrible to a loss of Hannover wattana because now you want to take advantage of an opportunity of a near Ma.
So you want to distance yourself from any hindrance from any block and sin blocks your way stands between you and Allah subhana wa Tada. So you have to come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala with renewed commitment or renewed interest, I am your slave, you're an amine, so you have to repent to Allah subhana wa Tada, at least to resolve that whatever wrong that you've been doing, you're going to stop doing these days. Once they start when they start you're going to stop during these days. Because also we should know that in virtuous places, and in virtuous times, when you commit a sin that sin could be multiplied because of the virtue of that spot and time. So when you're going to
come upon it you need to reach to the reach it or embrace it with tilba from Allah subhanho wa Taala legal sin behind resolved not going back to it feel sorry for it, and as the loss of data to give you the strength to stay away from it. The other thing is to come to come to it or to receive it with determination and a plan.
You need a plan.
One of the first things that you can do is to receive it with the liquid of Allah subhanaw taala increased vigor voila, because the prophets of the law he was in them says In fact, he will
say often in them tech beer Allahu Akbar de la ilaha illa
Hamblen This is actually forgotten soon.
Once you know that the days have started, you begin to fill these days with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala wherever you're going and coming house I've worked with family with friends constantly are saying Allahu Akbar Al Hamdulillah Allah law, the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it's reported from the Sahaba of the law, that they would go out to the market. And we would engage in the remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada and the people of the marketplace would hear that and they would follow they would repeat, they would be reminded that they should do that as well. So this is actually the Forgotten sin. This is a general liquor of Allah subhana wa Tada.
But it's an announcement. And it's a reminder announce it to yourself, that this is special, special days have started and a reminder for everybody around you. spouse, child, friends,
people in domestic coworkers, a reminder to people around you, this is special.
This is important to come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala do more for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala so remember that the second thing is your regular
your regular about that you take care always have the basics, your Salah, you take care of your Salah, and you pray on time, and you pray to the sinners as much as you can. And you created the masjid if you can. So your father you take care of that and Salah is one of the things that are lots of Hannah loves the most. See, we can be engaged in other types of worship and neglect our son as you take care of your son.
And also there is an opportunity to fast
there's an opportunity to fast it's reported that the prophets of Allah while he was with fast, the nine, the nine days of the 10 days the day rate so you cannot fast on that day, but he would fast the night. So if you want to, if you want to take advantage of fasting and fasting is a good deal. And it's better than any voluntary fast that will be done outside the cage. JOHN Allen knows best. So fast those days if you're if you're capable. And if you have the time. So we have bigger robots of Hanover de la sala we have fasting and of course, fasting on the day.
If anything else fails, fasting on the day of
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Honda Odyssey What are you gonna think it will forgive the sins of two years past and coming a past year and upcoming year for the passing of one single day. So this is a golden opportunity if we want a loss of power to Allah to forgive you. You plan from now on that day, I'm going to fast at least today. And maybe a couple of other days and maybe the whole night if I have the time and the power to do it. And if you want to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala and you're waiting for those
virtuous times. One of the most virtuous times is that Ivanka again
and sees the power law Allah subhana wa tada does not deprive us, though we've stayed behind that does not deprive us of his or her man, his mercy. It encompasses them and us. So he sets a lot, how do you send them how to do it, we only offer the best of
the day of our offer.
So you want something a lot you want a lot to accept it to save you from it to bless somebody else. You want to get something whatever it is that you have on your mind. And you want to speak to a loss of power to either you plan from now I'm going to talk to a loan that they have been asking for all of these things.
And he said well, hold on, hold on, I wanna be you and I'm in La ilaha illAllah de la sharika Hello, Nicola him to add a condition.
And the best that I and the prophets before me have said was this Vicar.
And it says in the head even another Hadith can do it was this the most frequent throughout the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day of Otto was the speaker of Allah subhana wa Tada. So you engage in the vicar and remembrance of Allah will do as well. And you say often, Allah
as much as you can on the erotica, it's an affirmation again of your commitment relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you ask a lot and you say this because you keep asking ALLAH, this is what they're doing over there. And this is what you're supposed to be doing here. Fasting, which is surrender and submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala would be
so in a in a sense, you mirror what they are doing over there in a legitimate way that Allah subhana wa Taala loves
and then anything else that you can do
any act of obedience that you can think about, there are people who have suggested donating every day for a loss of data. There are people who have suggested that you finish the entire Quran in those nine or 10 days, you plan it so that you can finish it as you had a plan for the month of Ramadan, you also develop a plan for those 910 days, so that you can do as much good in them as you can, exactly as you did in Ramadan, with the same enthusiasm with the same commitment with the same hole. Exactly do it in those days. And one of the student is also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
they are also is the slaughter of an animal.
And that is as soon as that's the confirmed signal from him, so a lot of you send them and some of the automatic say it's an obligation. Others say that it's a tsunami. But others say that it's an obligation, because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in the Heidi McKenna who sat and when Amanda Canada who sat in was
the one who can afford it, but he does not slaughter he does not sacrifice let him not come to our masala for praying.
And of course the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not urging you not to come to the masala not to create is not urging you to do this. But he's emphasizing that if you can afford it, that this is something that a lot of Hannon what the analysts, and that this is the sin of the prophets of Allah, how are you? And why are you ritual of Islam that should be practiced and not forgotten. So if you have the money, Allah Subhana, Allah has blessed you, this would be considered a revival of the sonalika upon yourself on upon your family and upon the needy. So inshallah Also don't forget to do that. And if you decided to do it via vanilla, once those days start, and again mirroring what
the people over there are doing, or they're allowed to disallow to do once those days start, you're not allowed to cut your hair or clip your nails. So again, in a sense, right, it's not a complete state of Islam, but you're feeling what they're feeling and this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala wants you to feel that you've actually had received special days from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And there are so many lessons in this Hajj and I go and leave you with this lesson for you to contemplate the lesson of our journey. The last panel with Allah had made it an obligation that you have to travel as long as you're able bodied, as late as long as you have money, you have to travel.
And what is this travel signified? And what does that tell you about your life as a traveler and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam it says in daddy's money, what he dounia in the method.
It says what attachment Do I have to the dunya my example or I and the dunia are like a traveler who was writing Then he took rest under the shade of a tree. And then he continued with his travel and left it behind. It says that's my attachment to the dounia. So this reminds you this travel compulsory travel and every single Muslim.
Every single Muslim has to travel once, even if they hate traveling, you have to travel and this teaches you something about your own life as a travel, what you wear, teaches you something about your destination about the value of this slide about equality, about not being a material person, etc, etc, etc. And this season is filled with panela filled lessons about sacrifice lessons about listening to a loss of Hannah Donna, it's filled with lessons. So you want to learn these lessons. You have to be ready for them and to be ready for them now be vanilla from now. Ask yourself the days are starting soon. It's gonna start tomorrow. So what's my plan? What do I do starting
tomorrow? What would be different between today and tomorrow? What will happen the day after and day after what will happen on the day.
So that when I come to the day for a business and I go out for them on Sunday I feel happy and I'll feel happy that Allah Subhana Allah gives me has given me nine wonderful days and the 10th is also the worship at nine wonderful days. We've been able to come so close to Allah subhana wa tada that is in mid 2000. So we ask Allah subhana wa tada immediate Allah bless these days for us, the Allah except Allah enable us first of all the Li enable us to worship you on these days, and to put all of our effort in your worship and to make this a worship that is sincere done for your sake. Yeah, like give us the opportunity to fast during these days and to remember you often and to pray on time, and
to donate for your sake, and to do every good deed that we are capable of. And you improve our lives in those days and the lives of our families and improve your love. They will allow you to send them your way except from the pilgrims. Their pilgrimage Allah accept from them their Hajj and accept them. They're there.
demand to generate and you do not deprive us of the rather mercy that you have given them. So you're also releases from hell prior and you are also in Gullfoss in your mercy. And also your ability let me enable those of us who have not given have not been had the opportunity to go there to have the opportunity to go there and to be blessed and to be forgiven your Camerata mean you allow us to fast on the day and accept our drama on the day. And Allah make it a blessed day for all of us. Yeah, but I mean as they are being blessed over there, yeah, Allah blesses also over here. Yeah, man, we are paying a whole lot. Forgive us all of our sins, and the sins of all of the Muslims who are curious
of all illness, and all also all of the Muslims. Take care of our deaths. Take care of our troubles, take care of our anxieties, increase the amount in our heart, increase your love in our heart, and the love of your prophets of Allah.
Allah united don't have a lot he was in upon the truth upon the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam and you're allowed to defend them against their enemies, you defend them against their enemies, you're protected from their enemies. Yeah, but I mean, along Martinez, Jr. has been
