For him to come to the last European I mean, for Summer Love was lm Agha Khan and Avi Nam come in while he was having he married of praises to to Allah made a Peace and blessings of Allah be upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon all of the prophets and all of the messengers permission to mankind. My dear brothers and sisters in Islam salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:37--> 00:00:43

Today inshallah Medina's presentation is entitled, The best days of the year,

00:00:44--> 00:00:46

the best days of the year.

00:00:47--> 00:01:00

And the days that I am referring to are the first 10 days of the month of these trimec month the final month of these climate calendar known as the hc J.

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

The month after doTERRA and the month before the first month of the Islamic calendar known as Mahatma.

00:01:10--> 00:01:14

Now, Allah subhana wa tada God Almighty

00:01:15--> 00:01:23

has favored certain times in certain places and certain people over others

00:01:25--> 00:01:29

other times making certain times or certain people

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

or certain places superior

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

over others.

00:01:37--> 00:01:40

So in Islam, we have for example,

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

the best of people of the prophets and the messengers.

00:01:46--> 00:01:51

And the Quran mentions some 25 prophets and messengers by name.

00:01:53--> 00:02:12

And we find from amongst the prophets and the messengers, allies though a journey he chose who lies to him in a gospel. He favored five prophets, including Prophet Adam, have a new Halle Salah Ibrahim, Moses,

00:02:13--> 00:02:19

Prophet Raisa Prophet Mohammed Salam while he was selling I should say starting from No

00:02:20--> 00:02:26

no, and the Brahim and Mossad and reset Jesus in Prophet Mohammed Salah Bonnie was said

00:02:27--> 00:03:01

so they are the five favorite prophets from amongst the prophets and messages that were sent to all of that was sent to mankind Prophet Mohammed Salah while he was sending it being the favorite one of the five given that his message and he's addressed this to all of mankind and not to certain people. So also panel Tyler has favored certain people. Allah subhanho wa Taala it favored certain places such as, such as Medina, such as Palestine,

00:03:03--> 00:03:09

Allah subhanho wa Taala or Jerusalem and puts we know it before

00:03:10--> 00:03:20

Palestine and Allah subhanho wa Taala has faded certain periods. So for example, the weekly

00:03:21--> 00:03:24

day that is faced with this gentleman tomorrow that they have Friday

00:03:25--> 00:03:37

and Allah subhanho wa Taala he favored from amongst the month in favor of the month of Ramadan, Mr. Ahn was revealed the poor and was revealed during the month of Ramadan.

00:03:39--> 00:04:14

So Allah subhana wa diallel he also has made four months throughout the year as sacred months, they are known as the sacred months. And what this means is that there has to be no shedding of blood during these months. Allah soprano Thailand in Surah tober and chapter 36. states that in that in that the chivalry in the law is nashoba shafran, kinky Tabby let them that

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

the number of months

00:04:18--> 00:04:27

to Allah a 12. So in Islam, we have 12 lunar months based on the cycle of the moon, which are either 29 or 30 days.

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

And then I'm also planning on what the island says mean.

00:04:31--> 00:04:47

Follow up these four of these 12 mean are bought at a bar which for a sacred mass. They are the sacred months and those sacred month per month, the sacred months.

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

Included includes the Canada,

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

the hijet mojarra. So they actually included these three successive months, the month

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

bluefin tuna is one of them, and Russia being the fourth. So, look at the picture.

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

And Roger

00:05:12--> 00:05:13

Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:05:16--> 00:05:23

He states that they are sacred monsters and the Arabs, the Arabs, pre Islamic era

00:05:24--> 00:05:43

considered them as sacred months, even during the Jackie Lee days of ignorance. Allah subhana wa teilen continuously says daddy Cadena pious that is the right religion. And he says further above the movie hidden and Casa comb, so do not run yourselves in them.

00:05:44--> 00:06:00

So when a person commits sin, and transgressors, the limits of Allah during a sacred time, it's not like having committed a sin outside of those times, because from the belief and from the man

00:06:01--> 00:06:11

from one's faith, is that a person should venerate and honor the rituals or the symbols of Islam, of Allah of God Almighty.

00:06:12--> 00:06:43

Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says, woman you help them sha Allah He for in the hands of Paul kulu and you ever honest, the symbols of Allah, that's a indication or an indicator or a sign of your taqwa of your fear of Allah azza wa jal in your God consciousness. So the ideal Muslim is the one who learns about the sacred times in these sacred places in these virtuous acts, and

00:06:45--> 00:06:50

begins to respect them and honor them in the way that they should be on it.

00:06:52--> 00:07:04

Now, of course, the panel will die that he has blessed us with many opportunities or golden opportunities, to develop our faith to enrich our Eman to water to enhance it,

00:07:05--> 00:07:12

to give it a workout, because your faith, just like your physical body needs to be

00:07:13--> 00:07:37

attended to. You need to just like with your physical body, you need to feel it, need to give a drink, to exercise for to be healthy to be functioning well. Likewise with your faith, with your faith, you need to exercise your faith. You can't just sit there and just be a believer and just expect your belief to rise without actually doing some sort of actions.

00:07:39--> 00:07:51

So a company that a loss of heart Allah He blesses us with seasons, with times that allow us to make up for our shortcomings that allow us to draw nearer to Allah,

00:07:53--> 00:08:03

that bring us closer to Allah that allows for Allah to shower us with His mercy, mercy in his blessings and his bounties.

00:08:04--> 00:08:31

So, a company that the Muslim understands the value of life, that this life is a transitory life and that inevitably, we will meet Allah subhana wa tada and that we should continue to worship Allah consistently until the day of party. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala is rooted

00:08:32--> 00:08:46

in the 15th chapter of the Quran, verse 99. He says, what I brought back to Kelly Athene and worship your Lord, until certainty comes about your plan is certainty. And

00:08:47--> 00:09:03

what he what this word is in reference to here is dead, because there is certain every song shall tasted, just as all the prophets and messengers tasted, and just all of the many, many people before us died, we will die.

00:09:04--> 00:09:07

And in 100 years from today,

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

anybody listening to this lecture, anybody listening to this presentation will not be alive.

00:09:16--> 00:09:59

So, this is the reality and Muslims should worship Allah azza wa jal and continue to worship until they meet Allah subhana wa tada and he is pleased with me. Now, the beautiful thing about Islam also is that there are many different acts of worship many ways of drawing need to Allah azza wa jal. And one of the beautiful wisdoms behind this is so the religion doesn't become boring. So we have five daily prayers. We have a weekly congregation, we have fasting we have giving Zakat to the poor and the needy, interacting

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

with them, we have to commit which entails travel, and meeting people from all walks of life.

00:10:07--> 00:10:29

Today, during these blessed days, there are some 4 million, 4 million people, at least 4 million people from all over the globe who have congregated, saying the faithful loving mother, saying, Here we are, Oh Allah, oh, here I am our love At your service, from all walks of life,

00:10:31--> 00:10:44

coming together and congregating and exchanging greetings and exchanging experiences and learning from each other, performing the hedge, performing the pilgrimage, the fifth pillar of Islam.

00:10:45--> 00:10:46

So,

00:10:47--> 00:11:21

we are now in the 10 days of the lecture. And as I said, they are the best days of the year as the best Knights of the E. They are the last nights the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan. And the reason why they are the best nights is because during one of those nights, the Quran was revealed and sent down from a local law Hall from the preserve tablet, or a local McFaul to the

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

lowest heaven.

00:11:25--> 00:11:57

So let's talk about these sacred days, and how to maximize the reward during these sacred days. Now, in the happiness that is found in Sahih Bukhari, it's the hadith of even at best for the Allah one who were Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Melvin a yen allama to solid fee hidden hubco illallah he mean houfy has he uh, yeah,

00:11:58--> 00:11:59

he had he

00:12:00--> 00:12:16

called one of jihad, peace. I believe that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, there are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these 10 days, very clear cut.

00:12:18--> 00:12:24

Howdy. And in another Hadith, or another narration that we find collected by datamine,

00:12:25--> 00:12:45

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Man enamelling as the law he Isaiah JAL, once upon a job, mean higher era era men houfy Asheville, he said, there is no deed more precious

00:12:47--> 00:12:57

in the sight of Allah, no greater reward than a good deed that is done during the 10 days of the 10 days of sacrifice.

00:12:58--> 00:13:04

Now, the people when the prophet SAW Selim, he said this, and he made these statements,

00:13:05--> 00:13:12

the people asked, What else do you have to face I've been in there, not even jihad, for the sake of Allah.

00:13:14--> 00:13:17

You know, we know that when a person performs jihad,

00:13:18--> 00:13:37

if somebody is defending the land, defending the country, they're defending in the name of allies or gentlemen, they're doing so they have to sacrifice most likely their life, there was a good chance that they will die. So

00:13:38--> 00:13:59

they've given up pretty much the most precious thing that you can give up as your life. So the Sahaba when they heard the prophet SAW Selim saying not even jihad is better doing doing righteous deeds. Isn't Jihad greater than this? So the purpose of Armada was alive, he said, he had not even jihad. Whether she has been in law, he is

00:14:00--> 00:14:02

a soldier in Iraq,

00:14:04--> 00:14:11

except for the one who leaves he leaves with himself, and he leaves all his wealth behind.

00:14:13--> 00:14:24

For them, your Charming Daddy can be shaved and he comes back with none of this. So he actually dies. That is the ultimate sacrifice. So

00:14:26--> 00:14:53

we find that these texts and others indicate that these 10 days my brothers and sisters in Islam are better than all of the other days of the year with no exceptions, not even the last 10 days of Ramadan, except as we said, the last 10 nights of Ramadan are better because they contain later to lay the other is the Knights have Divine Decree whereby the Qur'an was revealed,

00:14:54--> 00:14:56

which is better than 1000 months of worship.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

So we find some panel up

00:15:00--> 00:15:16

That's the Center for solid pious predecessors. They put very hard to gain much more during these blessings days. We have one of the students of Ivanov best the famous Sahabi, one of the students site in Jubail

00:15:19--> 00:15:28

time Tyler he would exhaust himself. In the last 10 days, it was very hard during the last 10 days or so during the first 10 days of the kitchen.

00:15:30--> 00:15:33

Now, when we look at the virtues of

00:15:34--> 00:15:49

the 10 days of good his jealousy is based on many things. One of the most important evidences that are cited is Allah azza wa jal, he makes an oath, an oath by these 10 days.

00:15:50--> 00:16:18

And there was a surah in the Quran called circle fudging the 89 chapter for an and in the first two verses a miser just says well, while in ash, by the dawn, the break of dawn budget the first prayer of the day, when I am in Asheville and the 10, the 10, nice, even less of a loved one who was one of the main commentators

00:16:19--> 00:16:20

of the Quran.

00:16:22--> 00:16:36

And others of the seles of the predecessors and the color became those who came after them. They said that this verse refers to the first 10 days of hedging.

00:16:38--> 00:16:45

Now, these 10 days include your offer. Your offer

00:16:46--> 00:17:02

is the greatest day of the year. The greatest day of the year, is found in the greatest days of the year, in one of the greatest months of the year.

00:17:04--> 00:17:29

And this is the day that Allah subhanho wa Taala perfected the deal, and we'll talk about that a little bit more in a moment. Now these days also include your narrow, narrow means sacrifice, the day of sacrifice and the greatest day of Hajj which combines acts of worship in a way unlike any other day.

00:17:31--> 00:17:37

Now, of course when we say sacrifice here we are referring to the story of Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam,

00:17:38--> 00:17:46

with the peace and blessings be upon him Prophet Abraham. And the story with his son is marrying his man

00:17:47--> 00:17:53

of Ibrahim alayhis salaam. He had a dream and the prophets of dreams.

00:17:55--> 00:17:57

revelation from Allah azza wa jal.

00:17:58--> 00:18:06

So Ibrahim saw in history, that he is to slaughter his beloved son is married.

00:18:08--> 00:18:08

And

00:18:10--> 00:18:18

so he comes up to his son, and he says, Yeah, oni, my son in Niala Freeman and he and me.

00:18:20--> 00:18:25

I have seen in my dream that I'm too slowly funboard method.

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

What do you say?

00:18:31--> 00:18:38

He said, Oh, mighty father. He was he addressed him with words of respect. For

00:18:40--> 00:18:53

tomorrow, my dear father, dude, do as you have been commanded. certegy Tony insha Allah homina siberie. You will by the will of Allah find me from amongst the patient ones

00:18:55--> 00:18:55

for them.

00:18:57--> 00:18:59

And when they both submitted,

00:19:00--> 00:19:13

they both submitted a slanted because Islam means submission. Islam means submission, surrender, and obedience to Allah. That's the meaning of Islam.

00:19:15--> 00:19:21

Islam and when they both submitted, Ibrahim submitted to our lives our agenda

00:19:23--> 00:19:37

to the will of Allah to the commander of Allah and is married his son submitted to his father's command, but he also secured to the commandment Allah azza wa jal, not contesting it, not fighting.

00:19:38--> 00:19:48

So they both submitted and this shows how children should mean should be towards their parents, submissive, dutiful, respectful, well mannered towards their parents.

00:19:50--> 00:19:53

What they love to live jabeen and he put him on his forehead.

00:19:55--> 00:19:56

And then

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

Allah soprano Medina sends down

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

The angel

00:20:02--> 00:20:14

with a sacrificial animal. And he said, sacrifice this animal instead of sacrificing your son, for this was only a test from allies origin.

00:20:16--> 00:20:19

And so they passed the test and unlock the power of the island

00:20:21--> 00:20:45

compensated compensated the son with the sacrificial animal enhanced Muslims from all over the world will offer what is known as a four band which means that which brings you closer to Allah you slaughter an animal and divide the meat is divided amongst the pole, the needy friends and you have some yourself if you can.

00:20:46--> 00:21:07

So, when Muslims around the world are sacrificing the sacrificial animals on the day of their sacrifice, which is on for a live call in solidarity with a Suki Amaya woman he will say masala masala tea wonder Suki Manu sukhmani choose

00:21:10--> 00:21:30

a Sala to Suki. Amaya usuki as you sacrifice it for the sake of Allah azza wa jal. So when we sacrifice, we don't sacrifice animals for the sake of a saint or a prophet, but for the sake of Allah azza wa jal and we distribute for the sake of Allah azza wa jal,

00:21:32--> 00:21:40

another name was put here, which means sacrificial animal or ban which bring the person to Allah azza wa jal or Debbie, how that which is loaded.

00:21:41--> 00:21:44

This is just a matter of semantics.

00:21:45--> 00:21:58

So, so Panama is even harder. The commentator on satirical Friday in his book but you also forget that he said, how he lasher Kashmir

00:22:01--> 00:22:13

rebellion, he said, these, he said these 10 nights, they encapsulate or they contain the mother, or the mothers

00:22:14--> 00:22:23

of the acts of worship, because you find in these 1010 days, we have hij we have solid, we have the passing of artifacts.

00:22:25--> 00:22:29

We have the remembrance of the last panel that we have set up.

00:22:31--> 00:22:35

So the oma had the mothers of

00:22:37--> 00:22:43

acts of worship are performed during the 10 days of the kitchen.

00:22:44--> 00:23:05

Now, when we look at the wording of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said many am Allah no Salafi him, he said, he said, that there are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah, Adam solid. Now righteous deeds here is not limited to one deed or another.

00:23:06--> 00:23:07

It's

00:23:09--> 00:23:12

righteous deeds in general. So it's

00:23:14--> 00:23:18

encompasses many different types of deeds. And we have many ticks

00:23:19--> 00:23:22

that show that Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:23--> 00:23:28

is, he loves it. When people do, amen silence.

00:23:29--> 00:23:38

Now we have for example, a verse in the Quran and Allah says, men ami lasagna Han means occur in output ghunsa wahoo,

00:23:40--> 00:23:48

Fernando De Anza, who is on pipe, and whoever does another solid, righteous deeds, male or female.

00:23:50--> 00:23:54

And he is a believer, we will grant him a godly life

00:23:55--> 00:24:00

to grant that person a good life. Miami lasagna can mean Docker in Arkansas.

00:24:03--> 00:24:16

So the shade here the moral here is that a lot as the agenda has not limited, a llama who saw like righteous deeds to one act or another but there are many acts of worship that you can choose

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

to engage in.

00:24:19--> 00:24:23

Now, of course, if a person cannot

00:24:25--> 00:24:34

directly engage in an assault, whether it be Salah sia, sia Surya is occurred, South Africa has

00:24:35--> 00:24:43

an aroma, the hour, enjoying the food forbidding the wrong, being beautiful towards your parents,

00:24:44--> 00:24:56

establishing and maintaining the ties of kinship, visiting the graves, visiting a sick person, this is all for months, the acts of worship. If you're not going to do any of those things,

00:24:57--> 00:25:00

for whatever reason, then the least

00:25:00--> 00:25:17

that you can do is to refrain from harming others during the explicit days. Don't talk about people don't engage in LIBOR. don't engage in malicious gossip in backfiring in slandering in line in

00:25:19--> 00:25:41

being abusive, whether physically, whether verbally, that's the least that you can do is to refrain from bad deeds. Now, let us look at some of the best actions that a person can do during the 10 days of the hedger. Without a doubt, the best act of worship. The best act of worship is what we can tell

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

during the picture

00:25:45--> 00:25:46

is to perform.

00:25:47--> 00:25:50

The best act of worship is to perform Hajj.

00:25:52--> 00:26:03

And so that's the best deed given all of the virtues that are related to hedge now the excellence of hard to find in the hubby's

00:26:05--> 00:26:49

above whatever the one who were above the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was once asked, What is the best deal and the promises or sell them? He said to have faith in Allah and His messenger. So then the Inquirer said, What next? The prophet SAW Selim said to strive in the cause of Allah. He said What next? And the prophet SAW said that he said hache mob rule, hatch mob rule of focus hedge, a hedge that is accepted by Alonzo agenda, a hedge that is free of sin, and is graced with divine acceptance and pleasure. That's the best one the best deeds a person can do.

00:26:51--> 00:27:00

Hajj is also a form of jihad. Hajj, is a form of jihad. Ayesha, she reports

00:27:01--> 00:27:34

that once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she said, a prophet of Allah, jihad, who striving fighting in the cause of Allah is the best thing, should we women, then not actively participate in it? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam He replied, the best Jihad for you is hedged abroad. The best. The best jihad is hedge mob rule and faultless for sin free hatch.

00:27:35--> 00:27:52

Hatch also wipes away the scenes that you have committed in the past. hive is like your spiritual washing machine that it wipes away is upon alone. When you look at the pilgrims. When they are walking around the cabin.

00:27:53--> 00:28:07

When they're walking around the garba anti clockwise beginning at the Blackstone, it resembles a washing machine effect. People are walking around and cleansing themselves working on this spirit. So

00:28:08--> 00:28:09

So can Allah.

00:28:11--> 00:28:26

The prophet SAW Selim, he said he performs Hajj for a loss pleasure and avoids all luminous, all luminous incense will return after Hajj free from all sins as he was the day his mother gave birth to him.

00:28:28--> 00:28:34

So you are sinless of the Hajj cleanse purified

00:28:35--> 00:28:36

in another

00:28:38--> 00:28:53

ramblin man asks, he says, When Allah guided me to this land, I went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said to him, oh prophet of Allah, stretch out your hand, so that I might pledge my allegiance to you.

00:28:54--> 00:29:23

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he stretched out his hand to me, but I withdrew my hand and the Prophet he asked a llama, what is the matter with you? He said, I would like to stipulate a condition. So the prophet SAW Selim said or asked him, What is your condition? And he said, Oh, Rama. He said, My condition is that for all of my past sins be be forgiven. The problems are still upset.

00:29:24--> 00:29:34

Do you not know that Islam wipes off all past sins and that hegira migration never was leaving your home

00:29:35--> 00:29:37

for the cause of Palazzolo job to go to another

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

place, wipes out all scenes, and he says, had wipes of all past sins. Hajj wipes off for past sins, has also my dear brothers and sisters in Islam is something to consider when it comes to wealth because it actually removes poverty.

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

It removes poverty of the life and Miss Ruth, one of the companions of prophet SAW Salem.

00:30:07--> 00:30:25

He said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that alternate between Hajj and Umrah congres aka minor, minor Hajj without going to the designated areas of hedge such as meaning almost dead refer for our fat.

00:30:26--> 00:30:53

So, he said alternates between hedge and Ramadan. For these to remove poverty and sins just as the blacksmith's bellows removes all impurities from metals like iron, gold and silver, and that the reward for hedge mob rule, I faultless patch is nothing short of Paradise is nothing short of gentlemen, a paradox.

00:30:54--> 00:31:17

And so the reward of hedge money brothers and sisters in Islam is paradise agenda because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in other heidy he said, all sins committed in between the performance of one onra and another are exploited and erased and the reward of hajima broad is nothing say paradise a gentleman.

00:31:19--> 00:31:22

And we have in another sound Friday

00:31:23--> 00:31:29

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he said this house of Allah meaning the Kaaba

00:31:30--> 00:32:15

is the pillar of Islam. So whoever hits to it with the intention of performing hajj with the intention of performing hajj or Umrah is under Allah security, and if he should die during his trip, he is granted gentlemen, and if he returns home safely, he returns with with reward and gain. Now hugs My dear brothers and sisters in Islam is only obligatory once in your lifetime and every year and only if you have the physical ability and the financial means to perform a hedge. Allah azza wa jal does not burden a soul more than it can be more than it can handle.

00:32:16--> 00:32:20

Abu huraira the Allahu Allahu wa he narrates

00:32:21--> 00:32:40

that once in a sermon, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said people he addressed the people saying Allah has prescribed Hajj for you. So you must perform it. So I met us every year. Do I have to do it every year? Our messenger of Allah has said that he remained silent.

00:32:42--> 00:32:48

And it's among the many people asking twice three times should I be performing hajj every year?

00:32:49--> 00:32:51

Because it's a pillar of Islam.

00:32:52--> 00:33:48

And so the prophet SAW long while he was similar. He said had I said yes, it would have become a yearly obligation and this would have been beyond your power. So Islam is very considerate, the teachings of Islam are very in touch, and in tune with people's circumstances. It's not easy to go to Hajj every imagine now. We have 1.7 billion Muslims in the world, right? Imagine the pressure, the pressures that Muslims would be under. If they all had to attend 1.7 billion Muslims all go to Hajj. I mean, airlines couldn't accommodate ships, boats, planes, cars, buses, whatever. How would you accommodate for 1.7 billion Muslims to make their way to an area where at the moment is

00:33:48--> 00:33:55

struggled with at least you know, 4 million 5 million Muslims. So how do we learn

00:33:56--> 00:34:37

this religion this Deen is legislated from Allah. And he knows what is best for us. He's the one who engineered us and the one who wired us, the one who programmed sinners was best for us. He said prophets and messengers, to enlighten us to direct us to guidance. He said manuals he said scriptures the same books. Allah Zoda did not leave us on this earth to work it out for ourselves. He gave us a brain he gave us and he intended to think about the purpose of life and to think about and to judge between what is right and what is wrong, what is and what is bad.

00:34:38--> 00:34:48

So it hasn't ever been I mean, but having said all of this, Muslims must expedite and should hasten towards performing the fifth pillar of Islam.

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

Because in one duration, the prophet SAW a lot while he was saying that we find and he said hasten to perform Hajj.

00:35:00--> 00:35:20

For you don't know what might happen to you, meaning you might fall sick, or you might be prevented by another way rubber, so it's wrong to procrastinate and to say or go to Hajj when I get married, when I get older, as soon as you have the physical and financial means you shouldn't be performing hajj.

00:35:21--> 00:35:27

And then if you get the opportunity to go again, with your spouse, to go again in the future,

00:35:28--> 00:35:30

there is nothing wrong with that inshallah level two.

00:35:31--> 00:35:36

Now, the prerequisites of Hajj, there is consensus amongst the,

00:35:38--> 00:35:41

amongst the scholars of Islam, the jurists that

00:35:43--> 00:35:53

Hajj is incumbent on the person who is a Muslim, who is an adult. So if you are a minor, if you are under the age of puberty, and in most cases that means under the age of 15.

00:35:55--> 00:35:59

Then even if you perform how to get the reward for it, but your obligation

00:36:01--> 00:36:04

has not ceased, you still have an obligation to perform hedge.

00:36:06--> 00:36:10

So it could be Muslim adult, sound state of mind.

00:36:12--> 00:36:35

Free, in other words, not being a slave, and having the ability to do so if we don't have the ability to do so. Because you have a chronic illness, a terminal illness that prevents you from performing hajj. Then I've come to realize, again, the legislator has legislated that it is allowed for somebody to perform Hajj on your behalf.

00:36:36--> 00:37:19

And today you can actually pay students the cheapest option is to pay students who are studying in Saudi Arabia such as Medina or Mecca or the neighboring cities and they will perform Hajj on your behalf but the condition is that they have to have performed the Hajj for themselves first. So they can they can perform Hajj on your behalf. If you know that you will not be able to now likewise a person has died. If a person has died and they haven't performed such a relative may perform Hajj on their behalf as long as they have performed Hajj themselves.

00:37:20--> 00:37:23

Okay, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:37:24--> 00:37:36

He asked one of the one of the Sahaba He's so nice. He heard him saying let Baker and Sugarman said, you know, I'm performing hajj on behalf of a man called Superman.

00:37:38--> 00:37:49

All he said was to this effect and then the prophet SAW Selim Sitchin had he performed hedge first yourself. So we learned from this that you need to have performed hedged yourself

00:37:50--> 00:37:54

if you are going to perform heights on behalf of a dead person.

00:37:55--> 00:38:01

Now, another point to keep in mind is that women who wants to perform hedge must perform hatch with

00:38:03--> 00:38:26

a chaperone. Your maharam is your male relatives such as your father, your husband, your grandfather, your uncle, your maternal uncle, your son, your brother. So, in general, the general rule is this a woman is not allowed to travel without a motto, whatever is deemed as being travel.

00:38:27--> 00:38:31

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Let's

00:38:32--> 00:38:40

limit it, and to saphira a llama the Maha that highest Hispanic, Muslim is the

00:38:41--> 00:38:52

best, but the loved one who are above it is not permitted for a woman to travel except with a Macron except with a man.

00:38:53--> 00:39:01

There was another incident whereby one of the Sahaba he was registered to go and fight in a certain vacuum.

00:39:03--> 00:39:33

So, he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I have been written to fight for British certified in a section such a battle and my wife and my wife has set off on how much she's going to hedge but I haven't gone with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to him, he said to him in Turlock, for jack ma tickets, go and perform Hajj with your wife. He didn't allow for the wife to go by herself.

00:39:34--> 00:39:59

The majority of the scholars say that a woman who intends to go to Hajj must have a Muslim. The only exception is the Shafi school of thought has have allowed for a woman to travel in a group. As long as she's with the group, then they have allowed for this, but the safer to be on the safe side. A woman should go with a Muslim now

00:40:00--> 00:40:14

I spoke earlier about the best day from amongst the best days of the ledger. And what day was that day to day out, out of the damp out of another day

00:40:15--> 00:40:40

is the ninth day of the year, the day before, the day before eighth is the day of our office. And this is the day that new cool grunts they go to an area called artifacts. So, pilgrimage actually convinces the actual rituals of which commenced on the eighth day of the kitchen. pilgrims who make their way from Mecca

00:40:41--> 00:41:02

to Medina, wherever they are, and they go to an area code minute, they will sleep the night in minutes. The next day, they wake up and they go to their artifacts. And they spent the whole day in worship in our offense. And there is a mountain there the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he stood up on this mountain, and he gave the farewell sermon.

00:41:05--> 00:41:38

He gave the farewell sermon on the mountain on the bottom of the mountain of artifacts. But all of the area that was in front of him is out effect. So the pupils they stay there and tomorrow. And then at that time, they will make their way to an area nearby and now sleep the night. The next morning is the day of raids at two o'clock, whereby we are commemorating the sacrifice of Ibrahim alayhi salam, and he said he's married. So they'll make their way to back to

00:41:39--> 00:42:04

Minot where they will perform the stoning of the jemalloc the jamara one of the pillars which shape on repeat to Ibrahim alayhis salaam celebrity no go to Medicare, and they'll perform the lap around the carpet seven times. And they will do sorry, that is between software and malware. Before that they'll pray to to to pray behind Makana Brahim, they'll drink some some water.

00:42:05--> 00:42:13

And some some water is a holy water that we find during the time of Ibrahim alayhis salam, when

00:42:16--> 00:42:42

the mother of his married she left him in the desert, and he began to keep looking for water and water became to spring out from the ground. This water is pure is pure water. And up to today excuse it is still there is still water coming up. So Pamela hasn't seen from a ton of Ibrahim has caused them some water in the middle of the desert.

00:42:44--> 00:42:50

So this water, people use it to cure many illness and illnesses and ailments.

00:42:51--> 00:42:54

Very, very pure water. So

00:42:56--> 00:43:03

these were the pilgrims will shorten their head. Meantime, they'll have somebody making

00:43:04--> 00:43:33

slaughtering the sacrificial animal. And then they will make their way back to Benin. And now we'll spend two or three days days depending and that's the hedge. So they'll come back and perform so often what that fear will the farewelled power, which is the circulation of the counter. So really hedge as far as the problems are concerned.

00:43:35--> 00:44:34

It's about the eighth day, the ninth day, the 10th 11th 12th and 13th 13th being an option to hatch can actually be performed in about five days, five days but Crimson earlier later because they visit Medina is not part of Hajj, or will they like want to just enjoy the acts of worship in the harem whereby one pray that you pray in adhara and monkey is equivalent to 100,000 praise and one prayer in Medina is 1000 praise Allah great virtue. We got back now to the day of out of fat, which we said is the ninth day, which we said is the ninth day of the religion. Now hear from Solomon he was saying that he spoke about what to say when it comes out of and he said the best of supplications is

00:44:34--> 00:44:59

the supplication on the day of RFM and the best which I as the prophets before me have said la isla illallah wa have the hula Sherry Kala la quwata who were who are either cliche in a year. This is the best application. When you acknowledge and you affirm that there is no deity no god that deserves to be

00:45:00--> 00:45:39

worship except Allah La ilaha illAllah one God, who has no partners, no equals, does not begin was not because in perfect in every sense, he is alive zoji La ilaha illAllah This is the phrase of monotheism of towhee. The phrase that allows people to enter into Islam and he said this is the best route you can save on the Delta phase la isla de la la YW la sharika. Now partners to him, lash Anika la who will move to Him belongs to the minion that will move

00:45:40--> 00:45:46

to Him belongs or praise one who either couldn't be Shay in a deal and he is Able to do all things.

00:45:47--> 00:45:48

Now,

00:45:50--> 00:46:09

this day, the day of alpha, Allah azza wa jal perfected the deal. The teachings were complete by this day of Islam, because we have an incident whereby Amara will be a loved one who reported on the Sahaba.

00:46:10--> 00:46:23

He reported that a Jewish man he said to him to Rama, he said to him, he will not mean a lead of the believers. There is an AI in your book, there is a verse in your book, meaning

00:46:25--> 00:46:39

that you recite it had been revealed to us Jews, we would have taken that day as a day of festival, or a festive day or a break or a holiday, whatever you want to call it.

00:46:40--> 00:46:58

So he asked me to do he said to him, which Days Are you referring to? Or which or which verse Are you referring to? And he said, I'm referring to the verse that Allah says, and he opened my mouth to lacantina. Kuhn, today, I have perfected your religion for you.

00:46:59--> 00:47:12

And so and completed my favor upon you and have chosen for you as spam as your religion. This is the verse that is found in the fifth chapter of the Quran, and third verse, so

00:47:14--> 00:47:39

he said, we know on which day and in which place that was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It was the day of our offense, and it was a Friday and as you know, Friday is our weekly is our weekly weekend. Muslim moms Thursday, Friday, Friday being the day that Muslims must leave up their trade and go to attend the Juma prayer.

00:47:40--> 00:47:44

Now we have another Hadith that is found in Sahih Muslim Hadees.

00:47:46--> 00:48:06

He reported the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked about fasting on the day of fasting on the day off out of fat, what's the rewards for it? The rewards for fasting on our fat is as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you can feel Seroquel, mabuya was seven was senator

00:48:07--> 00:48:08

that

00:48:09--> 00:48:47

often a certain formula, he said that the first thing of this day, it wipes away the sins of the previous key. That's a mouthful yet, and the arbella which is the upcoming. So that's what that's the reward of fasting is one day. So one of the best things that you can do for yourself during these 10 days is to fast from fudger to fast from food and drink from fast speech and all those things that Muslims should be fasting from. So this is the best thing that you can do today without affecting

00:48:48--> 00:48:51

the amount of fats without forgiveness of sins.

00:48:53--> 00:49:17

And so Panama we have a Haji is a Muslim, whereby the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said man in young men, x men men and your your your people love Wolfie he I mean another man Yomi arafa was late new soumaya he beat him by a cold man.

00:49:19--> 00:49:20

So there is the

00:49:21--> 00:49:27

there is no date on which Allah frees more people from the fire than the day of

00:49:28--> 00:49:37

he comes close and expresses his pride to the angels and he says what these people want. So

00:49:38--> 00:49:40

my dear brothers and sisters in the stand,

00:49:41--> 00:49:43

if you will not able to perform Hajj.

00:49:45--> 00:49:51

And repub the rewards and the virtues of Hajj then fast, fast as many of the days that
