Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Mr. shoukry here, hope you're doing well. I hope you're in a great mood. Congratulations on living to experience the 10 days of the hedger. That's why you and I both should be in a great mood. These 10 days are the best days of the year, Allah subhana wa tada swears by them in the Quran he says we'll fetch wilayah Dinesh Kumar swears by the 10 days of the ledger. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us about these 10 days, that there are no good deeds that are done that are more beloved to a loss of Hannah data than the 10 days that are done in the good deeds rather than are done in the 10 days of their hedger. So how would they ask for a little

00:00:45--> 00:01:21

loss of a lion a cinnamon they said not even jihad in the path of a lion. He said not even jihad in the path of Allah except for a person who goes forward with their wealth and with their self and comes back with neither of them. So this person who does the ultimate sacrifice other than that the most beloved actions to Allah are the actions that you and I have the ability to do over these 10 days. So what should we do? Number one, focusing on perfecting the obligatory prayers, or the obligatory actions in general, anything that's obligatory like the five daily prayers, perfecting them dutifulness or kindness to your parents perfecting that really, really working on that with a

00:01:21--> 00:01:59

lesser kind of dad has obligated on you ping years ago, if you haven't paid it yet, making sure that you knock out and that you perfect, the acts of worship that are obligatory on you and then beyond that, the voluntary action so whether it's your salop praying, the Sunnah prayers, making sure that you pray the Sunnah prayers in the day in the night praying Qian will lay a citation of the Quran. Whatever your word it is your daily devotional that you increase it or maybe even for some having a goal of reading the Quran from cover to cover during these 10 days. Also, beyond that fasting, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would fast during the 10 days of the year, the only day that you can't

00:01:59--> 00:02:34

fast is on the 10th day. However, on the ninth day, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us that whoever fast the ninth day which is the day of often the day of alpha is a great day, the day of artifice, the day that Allah subhanaw taala boost to the angels about the judge, the pilgrims were standing on the mountain of alpha and he says, Look at my slaves who have come dusty and disheveled bear witness so angels that I have forgiven them. And that day is the most severe on shape upon because that is the day that a lot frees the most souls from the hellfire. Now if you're not one of the judging, if you're not a hedge, then fasting the day of Allah forgives the previous year's sins

00:02:34--> 00:02:47

and the future your sins. So it is incredibly rewarding. What then do you think about the person also who's not only fasting, but the person who's feeding fasting people. So that's another good deed that a person can do also, beyond that,

00:02:48--> 00:03:29

making sure that you are making a lot of Vicar because they could have Allah. Allah Subhana Allah says and sort of that Hajj with charisma life a min Malamud, they remember the name of Allah Subhana Allah in days that are known. And these are talking about the 10 days of the future. So making sure that you're making a lot of sense upon a lot, a lot of meeting and hamdulillah a lot of diagnosing, let alone a lot a lot of tech be saying Allahu, Allahu Akbar. These are all phrases that are so light and so easy, you can do it on your commute, you can do it by yourself, you can do it anywhere that you are making sure that you remember a loss of Hana data much. And this is something that

00:03:29--> 00:04:08

anybody can do. And then the last thing that I'll share, there's more that can be shared. But the general rule is, if it's good to be done, then it is better to do it in the ledger. If it's good to be done, it's beloved to Allah subhanaw taala do as much of it in the ledger as you possibly can. The last thing is sharing goodness, sharing it with others, making sure that you're somebody who is spreading goodness to those who you love your family members. And we ask a lot of Hana data to accept from us and from you the good deeds that we do in their head Jade and Sharla is going to be on Friday. Until then, may Allah Subhana Allah accept from us and from you. What's a lie? Listen
