The, before I start my Khutba, unfortunately, I

00:00:51 --> 00:00:53

have to share some reminders

00:00:54 --> 00:00:57

that we are not allowed to park in

00:00:57 --> 00:00:58

the back alleys.

00:00:58 --> 00:01:00

Unfortunately, I have to talk about it. I

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

don't like to talk about parking.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:05

But because our neighbors are complaining, they're not

00:01:05 --> 00:01:06

happy with it.

00:01:07 --> 00:01:09

Please do not park in

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

back alleys. And also, when you see a

00:01:11 --> 00:01:13

sign that is reserved,

00:01:13 --> 00:01:15

like someone in the first Khotba, he took

00:01:15 --> 00:01:17

my own parking stall, and I had to

00:01:17 --> 00:01:18

look for a parking.

00:01:19 --> 00:01:21

So it's not nice. The imam is coming

00:01:22 --> 00:01:24

to lead the jum'ah, and then he there

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

is no parking for him. And he keeps

00:01:25 --> 00:01:27

looking for a parking stall

00:01:28 --> 00:01:30

or going around to see if they can

00:01:30 --> 00:01:30

find a place.

00:01:31 --> 00:01:32

This is not nice,

00:01:32 --> 00:01:33

Use common sense,

00:01:34 --> 00:01:35

Common sense.

00:01:35 --> 00:01:37

Be fair. Put your shoes in the

00:01:38 --> 00:01:40

yourself in the shoes of the other person.

00:01:40 --> 00:01:42

You're taking his parking stall,

00:01:42 --> 00:01:44

number 1. Number 2,

00:01:45 --> 00:01:47

I don't know. But I saw someone playing

00:01:47 --> 00:01:49

with his phone during the Jumah too,

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

if I'm talking about the first Jumah. But,

00:01:51 --> 00:01:53

but it seems like it is happening. It's

00:01:53 --> 00:01:54

a common.

00:01:54 --> 00:01:55

It's

00:01:55 --> 00:01:56

something that happens

00:01:57 --> 00:02:00

a lot in, in our Jumah prayers. People

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

playing with their phones, checking their Facebook or

00:02:02 --> 00:02:03

email.

00:02:04 --> 00:02:07

And Nabi saasalam kal min masal Hasafaqaddlaha.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

He said whoever touches the pebbles.

00:02:13 --> 00:02:14

You know, in the old days, they didn't

00:02:14 --> 00:02:16

have these fancy carpets.

00:02:17 --> 00:02:18

So the masjid was,

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

you know,

00:02:20 --> 00:02:21

they had a ground

00:02:21 --> 00:02:23

with pebbles and with dirt.

00:02:25 --> 00:02:27

So he said if someone plays with pebbles

00:02:27 --> 00:02:28

in front of him,

00:02:29 --> 00:02:30

then he had

00:02:30 --> 00:02:31

made,

00:02:32 --> 00:02:33

a useless action.

00:02:33 --> 00:02:35

And his the reward of his jum, I

00:02:35 --> 00:02:36

will be newly fight.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

You don't have to do it again, but

00:02:39 --> 00:02:41

you lose the reward of of a Jummah

00:02:41 --> 00:02:42

prayer.

00:02:43 --> 00:02:44

So Allah

00:02:46 --> 00:02:47

al Dinah al Islamah jama'a. Allah al Dinah

00:02:47 --> 00:02:49

al Islamah because, I don't know why we,

00:02:50 --> 00:02:51

when we come to the masjid,

00:02:52 --> 00:02:54

we don't respect the rules.

00:02:54 --> 00:02:56

We we don't follow the rules.

00:02:56 --> 00:02:59

But when we go to other places,

00:02:59 --> 00:03:01

I'm sure that we follow the rules.

00:03:01 --> 00:03:04

And we worry about parking tickets, and we

00:03:04 --> 00:03:06

worry about the signs.

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

But we come to the masjid.

00:03:08 --> 00:03:10

We don't respect the rules. I don't know

00:03:10 --> 00:03:12

why. I'm not saying all, but there is

00:03:12 --> 00:03:13

a group of people

00:03:14 --> 00:03:16

who are doing this, and they affect the

00:03:16 --> 00:03:17

reputation of the community

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

because people are looking at this place.

00:03:21 --> 00:03:23

This is the face of the community, the

00:03:23 --> 00:03:23

Masjid.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:26

Right? They don't know about any other

00:03:28 --> 00:03:31

schools or I mean, these are major organizations

00:03:31 --> 00:03:34

or institutions in our community. The Masjid,

00:03:35 --> 00:03:36

our place of worship.

00:03:37 --> 00:03:39

It's like our community center. We come here.

00:03:40 --> 00:03:40

If we

00:03:41 --> 00:03:44

ruin the reputation of the Masjid, then the

00:03:44 --> 00:03:45

whole community

00:03:45 --> 00:03:48

We're we're affecting the image of the whole

00:03:48 --> 00:03:48

community.

00:03:49 --> 00:03:51

And through our behavior, we can

00:03:52 --> 00:03:54

guide people and invite them to Islam. There

00:03:54 --> 00:03:56

are many people who are interested,

00:03:57 --> 00:03:59

calling us. They want to know about Islam.

00:04:00 --> 00:04:02

Like, every week here in Calgary, we have

00:04:02 --> 00:04:03

3, 4 people

00:04:03 --> 00:04:04

accepting Islam.

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

And imagine they accept Islam. They come

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

to our Masjid, and they feel like we're

00:04:09 --> 00:04:11

not organized. We're not we don't care about

00:04:11 --> 00:04:12

each other.

00:04:12 --> 00:04:15

Then they will be shocked. Right? That's why

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

we have people who accept Islam and then

00:04:17 --> 00:04:19

leave Islam again. Wallahi, this is true.

00:04:20 --> 00:04:21

In 2011,

00:04:21 --> 00:04:22

I was in UK.

00:04:23 --> 00:04:26

The discussion was some people were involved in

00:04:26 --> 00:04:26

Dawah,

00:04:27 --> 00:04:29

and they said the retention rate is only

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

40%.

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

I was shocked.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:34

That means, Yani,

00:04:34 --> 00:04:37

among the people who accept Islam, only 40%

00:04:37 --> 00:04:38

stay as Muslims.

00:04:38 --> 00:04:40

60% believe Islam again.

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

Why is that?

00:04:43 --> 00:04:45

Now, alhamdulillah, they said the rate is better.

00:04:46 --> 00:04:48

Maybe you are becoming more organized.

00:04:48 --> 00:04:49

There's more material,

00:04:50 --> 00:04:52

more books, more resources available,

00:04:53 --> 00:04:55

and they are getting some support. Now new

00:04:55 --> 00:04:56

Muslims are getting support

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

from, from our community.

00:04:59 --> 00:05:02

So maybe more people are are staying as

00:05:02 --> 00:05:05

Muslims, but we still have people who accept

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

Islam

00:05:06 --> 00:05:09

accept Islam, and then they leave Islam again.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:12

And ask the question why.

00:05:12 --> 00:05:14

I'll leave the answer to you.

00:05:15 --> 00:05:18

But someone accept Islam, becomes Muslim, read the

00:05:18 --> 00:05:19

Quran and everything, and then

00:05:20 --> 00:05:22

comes to the community and

00:05:23 --> 00:05:25

decided to leave again. I don't want to

00:05:25 --> 00:05:26

be Muslim anymore.

00:05:27 --> 00:05:29

So something that we have to think about,

00:05:30 --> 00:05:32

And I'll leave the answer to you.

00:05:35 --> 00:05:37

Tomorrow is the day of Arafah,

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

and it is one of the blessed days.

00:05:40 --> 00:05:41

It's full. It's a day that is full

00:05:41 --> 00:05:42

of blessings.

00:05:43 --> 00:05:44

It's packed with blessings.

00:05:45 --> 00:05:47

Some even there are some

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

who believe that it could be the best

00:05:50 --> 00:05:52

day day in the whole year. Other Muslims

00:05:52 --> 00:05:54

call us, they said no. The day of,

00:05:54 --> 00:05:55

which is the day of Eid.

00:05:56 --> 00:05:58

So, anyway, they are very close. So we

00:05:58 --> 00:05:59

have these 10 days

00:06:00 --> 00:06:02

of Dalhijja from 1 to 10.

00:06:02 --> 00:06:04

They are the best days in the whole

00:06:04 --> 00:06:05

year.

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

And the

00:06:12 --> 00:06:13

These are the best days in the whole

00:06:13 --> 00:06:14

year.

00:06:14 --> 00:06:17

Compare it with Ramadan, nighttime in Ramadan is

00:06:17 --> 00:06:19

better because they have in Ramadan, we have

00:06:19 --> 00:06:20

laylat al Qadr.

00:06:21 --> 00:06:22

But if we're talking about daytime,

00:06:23 --> 00:06:25

these are the best days in the whole

00:06:25 --> 00:06:25

year.

00:06:26 --> 00:06:26

And

00:06:27 --> 00:06:30

the best two days among these 10 days

00:06:30 --> 00:06:31

are the day of Arafa

00:06:32 --> 00:06:35

and the day of a, which is on

00:06:35 --> 00:06:37

Sunday, the day of Eid al Agha.

00:06:38 --> 00:06:39

On this day, Allah

00:06:41 --> 00:06:43

has chosen to send a very important message

00:06:43 --> 00:06:44

to the community.

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

And this message came to

00:06:48 --> 00:06:50

on the day of Arafah on Friday

00:06:50 --> 00:06:52

when he was standing up in Arafah.

00:06:53 --> 00:06:55

He received a beautiful message from Allah

00:06:57 --> 00:06:58

in Surat Al Maida.

00:06:59 --> 00:06:59

And this

00:07:03 --> 00:07:03

says

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

So

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

Allah waited for this day, the day of

00:07:08 --> 00:07:09

Arafah,

00:07:09 --> 00:07:12

to tell the Muslim Ummah today, I have

00:07:12 --> 00:07:14

perfected for you your religion,

00:07:14 --> 00:07:17

and I have completed my favors upon you.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:19

And I have chosen Islam as a religion

00:07:19 --> 00:07:22

for you. And this is the biggest nirma,

00:07:23 --> 00:07:25

Wallahi. The biggest nirma is to be a

00:07:25 --> 00:07:28

Muslim, especially if you follow the Quran,

00:07:28 --> 00:07:31

you follow, the sunnah of Rasulullah SAW.

00:07:31 --> 00:07:33

You're not following any false ideology.

00:07:34 --> 00:07:36

You just follow mainstream Islam,

00:07:36 --> 00:07:38

and then hoping that you'll be one of

00:07:38 --> 00:07:41

a one of the inhabitants of Jannat al

00:07:41 --> 00:07:42

Firdaus.

00:07:43 --> 00:07:45

If you follow the guidance of the Quran

00:07:45 --> 00:07:47

and you follow the sunnah of our prophet

00:07:47 --> 00:07:49

Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:07:50 --> 00:07:52

Because you will spend the rest of your

00:07:52 --> 00:07:54

life with the best people in Jannah, in

00:07:54 --> 00:07:54

Jannah.

00:07:56 --> 00:07:59

Allah is pleased with you. You're happy. You're

00:08:01 --> 00:08:03

safe. And it's eternity.

00:08:03 --> 00:08:06

Eternity. Because the other option is horrible.

00:08:06 --> 00:08:09

The other option which is jahannam nessallahu

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

alafiya,

00:08:10 --> 00:08:12

there are people who will suffer there

00:08:12 --> 00:08:12

forever.

00:08:13 --> 00:08:17

And another another eternity there, but they will

00:08:17 --> 00:08:19

be suffering there. There is no life there,

00:08:19 --> 00:08:21

but there is no death. They don't die.

00:08:21 --> 00:08:22

That's Allah.

00:08:24 --> 00:08:26

So the best nima that is given to

00:08:26 --> 00:08:26

you

00:08:27 --> 00:08:29

is to be a Muslim.

00:08:30 --> 00:08:31

It is a nirma from Allah.

00:08:32 --> 00:08:33

And that's why Allah

00:08:34 --> 00:08:36

reminded us of this great,

00:08:37 --> 00:08:39

favor, great nama on this day.

00:08:40 --> 00:08:42

And the ul Hammadi said it is a

00:08:42 --> 00:08:43

day of forgiveness

00:08:44 --> 00:08:46

and freedom from the fire because of a

00:08:46 --> 00:08:47

famous hadith

00:08:48 --> 00:08:50

in which Rasulullah

00:08:51 --> 00:08:52

he

00:08:55 --> 00:08:56

said,

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

So he said

00:09:08 --> 00:09:10

in this famous hadith,

00:09:10 --> 00:09:11

there is no day

00:09:12 --> 00:09:14

in which Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala frees

00:09:15 --> 00:09:16

more servants

00:09:17 --> 00:09:19

from the punishment of hellfire than the day

00:09:19 --> 00:09:20

of Arafah.

00:09:21 --> 00:09:24

So Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala is so pleased

00:09:24 --> 00:09:25

on that day

00:09:25 --> 00:09:27

with the people who will go to Arafah,

00:09:28 --> 00:09:30

and he's so pleased.

00:09:30 --> 00:09:33

He's extremely happy with them, with their with

00:09:33 --> 00:09:34

their achievements

00:09:35 --> 00:09:38

to the extent that he will free

00:09:39 --> 00:09:42

a big number of Muslims from the punishment

00:09:42 --> 00:09:44

of hellfire. So these people will be going

00:09:44 --> 00:09:46

to hellfire, and then Allah will

00:09:46 --> 00:09:49

free them from hellfire, will forgive their sins

00:09:49 --> 00:09:51

because he is pleased on that day.

00:09:51 --> 00:09:53

Tomorrow. It's happening tomorrow.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:56

He's pleased. He's happy.

00:09:56 --> 00:09:59

And then you'll be addressing proudly addressing the

00:09:59 --> 00:10:01

angels about the people who will be standing

00:10:01 --> 00:10:02

up in

00:10:05 --> 00:10:06

Arafa?

00:10:06 --> 00:10:08

Proudly speaking to the angels,

00:10:11 --> 00:10:13

What do these people seek and desire?

00:10:14 --> 00:10:15

And there is no answer.

00:10:16 --> 00:10:18

There is no answer because the answer is

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

known.

00:10:19 --> 00:10:21

There is nothing to do there. There is

00:10:21 --> 00:10:22

no business. No malls.

00:10:22 --> 00:10:23

No businesses.

00:10:25 --> 00:10:26

Even if you wanna buy something, I mean,

00:10:26 --> 00:10:29

you can from a truck maybe or something.

00:10:29 --> 00:10:31

But there is nothing to do there. People

00:10:31 --> 00:10:33

will go there for the sake of Allah

00:10:34 --> 00:10:36

to worship Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, and Allah

00:10:36 --> 00:10:38

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is extremely happy with their

00:10:38 --> 00:10:40

deeds. And then we'll start forgiving

00:10:41 --> 00:10:42

the sins of many Muslims,

00:10:43 --> 00:10:46

And many many Muslims will receive this freedom

00:10:47 --> 00:10:48

from the fire.

00:10:52 --> 00:10:55

And on a different hadith, Rasulullah alaihi wa

00:10:55 --> 00:10:58

sallam also was talking about the excellence of

00:10:58 --> 00:10:59

this day.

00:10:59 --> 00:11:00

He said,

00:11:20 --> 00:11:22

So he said the best dua is the

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

dua that is made on the day of

00:11:24 --> 00:11:25

Arafah.

00:11:25 --> 00:11:27

It's not about the dhikr,

00:11:28 --> 00:11:30

because the second part is about the dhikr.

00:11:30 --> 00:11:32

It doesn't mean that this dhikr is the

00:11:32 --> 00:11:34

best dua. It is the best form of

00:11:34 --> 00:11:34

dhikr.

00:11:35 --> 00:11:37

The hadith saying, this is the best thing,

00:11:37 --> 00:11:39

the second part. He said, the best what

00:11:39 --> 00:11:42

I have said and the prophets before me

00:11:42 --> 00:11:43

is the dhikr of

00:11:48 --> 00:11:49

Right?

00:11:50 --> 00:11:51

But the first part of the hadith

00:11:52 --> 00:11:54

is saying that the best supplication, the best

00:11:54 --> 00:11:56

dua that you can make in your life

00:11:56 --> 00:11:58

is the day the dua that you make

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

on the day of Arafah.

00:12:01 --> 00:12:03

So prepare yourself for tomorrow.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:05

Tomorrow is the day of Arafah.

00:12:06 --> 00:12:09

Right? And Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam in a

00:12:09 --> 00:12:11

famous hadith also in Muslim Abdul Imam Ahmed,

00:12:11 --> 00:12:13

he said Allah will

00:12:14 --> 00:12:14

proudly

00:12:15 --> 00:12:17

talk to the angels about the achievements or

00:12:17 --> 00:12:20

the Ibadat of his servants who come to

00:12:20 --> 00:12:20

Arafah

00:12:21 --> 00:12:24

during the evening time between Asar and Maghrib.

00:12:25 --> 00:12:28

The hadith says between that time, it will

00:12:28 --> 00:12:31

be there between 5 to 7 or between

00:12:31 --> 00:12:32

4 to 8.

00:12:33 --> 00:12:34

Here, it will be morning time,

00:12:35 --> 00:12:37

maybe between 9 or 8 to 11,

00:12:38 --> 00:12:40

if you are able to take advantage of

00:12:40 --> 00:12:41

this time tomorrow.

00:12:41 --> 00:12:43

Because tomorrow is a day off.

00:12:44 --> 00:12:47

And the ultimate plan, if you wanna take

00:12:47 --> 00:12:48

advantage of this time tomorrow,

00:12:49 --> 00:12:51

the ultimate plan is to plan for to

00:12:51 --> 00:12:52

fast on this day.

00:12:54 --> 00:12:57

Fast because Rasulullah, he said, fasting on this

00:12:57 --> 00:12:59

day is an expiation for the sins of

00:12:59 --> 00:13:00

2 years, 2 years,

00:13:01 --> 00:13:03

the previous year and the coming year. So

00:13:03 --> 00:13:05

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is willing to

00:13:05 --> 00:13:08

to forgive the sins that you did not

00:13:08 --> 00:13:09

commit yet

00:13:10 --> 00:13:12

because of your fasting on this day, the

00:13:12 --> 00:13:14

day of Arafah, which is happening tomorrow.

00:13:15 --> 00:13:17

And there are some Muslims who are confused

00:13:17 --> 00:13:19

about fasting on Saturday. Don't be confused.

00:13:20 --> 00:13:20

The majority,

00:13:23 --> 00:13:25

overwhelming majority of Muslim scholars, they said there

00:13:25 --> 00:13:27

is no problem with fasting on Saturday.

00:13:28 --> 00:13:30

There is one Adam. We respect him. We

00:13:30 --> 00:13:32

love him, but he he got it wrong

00:13:32 --> 00:13:34

on this mess. He said we're not supposed

00:13:34 --> 00:13:37

to Saturday. His hadith that he used this

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

week.

00:13:38 --> 00:13:39

And,

00:13:46 --> 00:13:48

Everyone, his opinion can be accepted or rejected

00:13:48 --> 00:13:48

except

00:13:49 --> 00:13:50

Rasulullah

00:13:51 --> 00:13:54

And the Jamur, a majority of Muslim scholars

00:13:54 --> 00:13:56

who said it is okay to fast on

00:13:56 --> 00:13:58

Saturday if it falls. If it is a

00:13:58 --> 00:14:01

day of Arafa, they have also some strong

00:14:01 --> 00:14:02

proofs

00:14:02 --> 00:14:04

about it. So it is okay to fast

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

tomorrow.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:06

It is highly recommended.

00:14:07 --> 00:14:09

It is an expiation for the sins of

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

2 years.

00:14:10 --> 00:14:11

This is the first thing.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:14

The second thing, if you can come to

00:14:14 --> 00:14:15

the Masjid and pray with JAMA,

00:14:16 --> 00:14:18

a state of shuruq. We're praying the Masjid

00:14:18 --> 00:14:19

these days, 4:30,

00:14:20 --> 00:14:22

and it's only 35 minutes till shuruq.

00:14:23 --> 00:14:25

And then after shuruq, we can pray the

00:14:25 --> 00:14:27

sunnah to shuruq. 10 minutes or 10 15

00:14:27 --> 00:14:28

minutes, you pray a sunnah shuruq.

00:14:29 --> 00:14:30

And if you can wait,

00:14:30 --> 00:14:32

because that's the time that is the time

00:14:32 --> 00:14:34

when the Ujjayah are standing up in Arafah,

00:14:35 --> 00:14:37

raising their hands and making dua, and

00:14:38 --> 00:14:39

Allah is happy with their.

00:14:39 --> 00:14:41

If you can stay in the Masjid, then

00:14:41 --> 00:14:41

make dua.

00:14:42 --> 00:14:43

And you can have a list of your

00:14:43 --> 00:14:45

dua. You can, tonight, prepare your list of

00:14:45 --> 00:14:46

duas.

00:14:47 --> 00:14:49

Tonight, prepare your list of du'a, whatever you

00:14:49 --> 00:14:51

want. Jannah, number

00:14:51 --> 00:14:53

1. Then, make du'a for your children, for

00:14:53 --> 00:14:55

your family if you don't have a job.

00:14:56 --> 00:14:58

Make dua for your brothers and sisters in

00:14:58 --> 00:14:58

Palestine.

00:14:59 --> 00:15:00

You can ask Allah

00:15:00 --> 00:15:03

for whatever you want. But, of course, should

00:15:03 --> 00:15:05

be on the top of the list. Janatul

00:15:05 --> 00:15:06

for those should be

00:15:06 --> 00:15:07

on the top of the list. This is

00:15:07 --> 00:15:08

Allah

00:15:09 --> 00:15:09

So

00:15:10 --> 00:15:12

dhikr and du'a

00:15:13 --> 00:15:16

and also sadaqa if you want and fasting,

00:15:16 --> 00:15:17

these are the best deeds that you can

00:15:17 --> 00:15:18

do

00:15:18 --> 00:15:19

tomorrow,

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

Saturday. It's a day of Arafa. It's a

00:15:21 --> 00:15:22

great

00:15:26 --> 00:15:27

day.

00:15:46 --> 00:15:47

The next day,

00:15:47 --> 00:15:49

on Sunday, it will be the day of

00:15:49 --> 00:15:50

Eid, Eid Al Agha,

00:15:51 --> 00:15:53

another great day.

00:15:53 --> 00:15:55

And Muslims are supposed to come to.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:00

A a a small group of Muslim scholars

00:16:00 --> 00:16:01

believe that it could be

00:16:09 --> 00:16:12

the to emphasize the importance of attending salatil

00:16:13 --> 00:16:15

aid and attending the du'a because there are

00:16:15 --> 00:16:17

people who pray and leave. They don't attend

00:16:17 --> 00:16:19

the the Khutba. And the dua is usually

00:16:19 --> 00:16:21

made at the end of the Khutba.

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

Rasulullah

00:16:24 --> 00:16:27

used to advise women who are excused,

00:16:27 --> 00:16:28

they

00:16:28 --> 00:16:30

are not supposed to pray,

00:16:30 --> 00:16:32

to come to the Musa Allah

00:16:32 --> 00:16:35

and witness the dua of the Muslims on

00:16:35 --> 00:16:35

that day.

00:16:36 --> 00:16:38

From this hadith or this story,

00:16:39 --> 00:16:42

we derive the importance of coming to that

00:16:42 --> 00:16:43

salah to

00:16:44 --> 00:16:46

and attend salat al Eid with Muslims.

00:16:46 --> 00:16:48

And there are many places who are offering

00:16:48 --> 00:16:51

salat al Eid, alhamdulillah, from 7 o'clock till

00:16:51 --> 00:16:51

9, 10,

00:16:52 --> 00:16:54

10 o'clock, different options. We don't have a

00:16:54 --> 00:16:57

bigger place. We don't own a big place

00:16:57 --> 00:16:59

in this city of Calgary. We can where

00:16:59 --> 00:17:01

we can all get together. It's difficult.

00:17:02 --> 00:17:04

But Masajid and different organizations are doing most

00:17:04 --> 00:17:06

of them read prayers in their locations,

00:17:07 --> 00:17:08

in their own places.

00:17:09 --> 00:17:11

So this is the first thing. The second,

00:17:12 --> 00:17:15

Ibadah, which is another great act of worship,

00:17:15 --> 00:17:16

is to offer the Qurbani.

00:17:17 --> 00:17:19

The Qurbani was the sunnah of Ibrahim alaihis

00:17:19 --> 00:17:21

salaam and the sunnah of our prophet Muhammad

00:17:21 --> 00:17:24

sallallahu alaihi wasallam. And it is enough to

00:17:24 --> 00:17:25

do one

00:17:25 --> 00:17:28

sheep on one goat on behalf of the

00:17:28 --> 00:17:30

whole family. I know there is another opinion

00:17:30 --> 00:17:32

that says every member of the family who

00:17:32 --> 00:17:34

is able to do it, he has to

00:17:34 --> 00:17:36

do it on behalf of himself. They look

00:17:36 --> 00:17:38

at the sunnah of Rasulullah SAWS. He used

00:17:38 --> 00:17:40

to do 2. One of them, he would

00:17:40 --> 00:17:43

say, Allahu Muhammad and Muhammadu ali Muhammad on

00:17:43 --> 00:17:45

behalf of Muhammad and his family alayhis salatu

00:17:45 --> 00:17:46

alayhis salam.

00:17:47 --> 00:17:49

2nd 1, on behalf of any Muslim who

00:17:49 --> 00:17:51

was not able. And this is something special.

00:17:53 --> 00:17:56

We cannot do it. Cannot say, any

00:17:56 --> 00:17:59

there's no alim who said no. We're supposed

00:17:59 --> 00:18:00

to do it and follow his sunnah and

00:18:00 --> 00:18:02

have a second korbani and do it on

00:18:02 --> 00:18:05

behalf of Muslims rest of Muslims. That was

00:18:05 --> 00:18:06

his choice,

00:18:07 --> 00:18:07

and Allah

00:18:08 --> 00:18:11

approved his his, his choice. Right? He used

00:18:11 --> 00:18:12

to do the 2nd qurbani

00:18:13 --> 00:18:15

on behalf of any Muslim who was not

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

able

00:18:16 --> 00:18:18

to offer qurbani whether at that time or

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

forever till the day of judgement. Allah

00:18:21 --> 00:18:21

knows

00:18:22 --> 00:18:24

best. But that was his choice

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

and Allah

00:18:26 --> 00:18:29

approved his his practice. Right? But the Sahaba

00:18:29 --> 00:18:30

the rest of the Sahaba,

00:18:31 --> 00:18:33

they said we used to have 1 kurbani,

00:18:34 --> 00:18:34

one

00:18:35 --> 00:18:37

animal sacrifice on behalf of the whole family.

00:18:37 --> 00:18:39

So the head of the family

00:18:39 --> 00:18:41

is supposed to do it. Right? And you

00:18:41 --> 00:18:43

include in your intention

00:18:43 --> 00:18:46

those who are living with you. As Raul

00:18:46 --> 00:18:48

Hammadi said, if you have parents who passed

00:18:48 --> 00:18:49

away, you are allowed to include them in

00:18:49 --> 00:18:51

your intention. You don't have to do a

00:18:51 --> 00:18:54

separate kurbani for your parents. You can include

00:18:54 --> 00:18:55

them in your,

00:18:55 --> 00:18:57

and that would be accepted with.

00:18:58 --> 00:19:00

Now if you decide to do it here,

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

not to send it back home, not to

00:19:02 --> 00:19:03

send it through,

00:19:04 --> 00:19:04

relief organizations,

00:19:05 --> 00:19:07

you have to pay attention to a few

00:19:07 --> 00:19:09

things. The animal has to be healthy.

00:19:09 --> 00:19:10

Healthy.

00:19:10 --> 00:19:12

So it cannot be lame. It cannot be

00:19:12 --> 00:19:13

blind.

00:19:13 --> 00:19:15

It cannot be abnormally

00:19:15 --> 00:19:16

thin

00:19:16 --> 00:19:17

and sick.

00:19:18 --> 00:19:20

It cannot have a disease.

00:19:20 --> 00:19:22

So it has to be healthy,

00:19:22 --> 00:19:25

the animal. What what the second point is

00:19:25 --> 00:19:27

you have to pay attention to the age

00:19:27 --> 00:19:28

of the animal.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:30

If it is a lamb, it has to

00:19:30 --> 00:19:31

be at least 6 months.

00:19:31 --> 00:19:33

Less than 6 months is not accepted.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:38

You have to make sure because the the

00:19:38 --> 00:19:40

if you're dealing with a non Muslim, most

00:19:40 --> 00:19:43

likely he doesn't know the importance of the

00:19:43 --> 00:19:45

age. He doesn't know the importance.

00:19:45 --> 00:19:47

So you need to tell him our

00:19:48 --> 00:19:50

our sacrifice will not be accepted if the

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

lamb is less than 6 months. If it

00:19:53 --> 00:19:54

is a goat, it has to be at

00:19:54 --> 00:19:56

least 1 year. If it is a cattle,

00:19:56 --> 00:19:58

like a cow, it has to be at

00:19:58 --> 00:20:00

least 2 years. If it is a camel,

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

at least 5 years. We don't have camels,

00:20:02 --> 00:20:04

but this is for the sake of knowledge.

00:20:04 --> 00:20:06

It has to be at least 5 years

00:20:06 --> 00:20:07

old.

00:20:08 --> 00:20:10

The timing of this, the beehive, if you

00:20:10 --> 00:20:12

are doing it here, it has to happen

00:20:12 --> 00:20:13

after Salat al i'il.

00:20:14 --> 00:20:16

We know some of our brothers,

00:20:16 --> 00:20:18

I don't know why they do that. They

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

go to the farm here in the city

00:20:20 --> 00:20:22

of Calgary before Salat al Eid, early in

00:20:22 --> 00:20:24

the morning. At 6 o'clock, they are in

00:20:24 --> 00:20:24

the farm.

00:20:25 --> 00:20:27

If we do the there the biha after

00:20:27 --> 00:20:28

before salat,

00:20:29 --> 00:20:31

and they don't offer the salat themselves and

00:20:31 --> 00:20:33

they do it before salat,

00:20:33 --> 00:20:34

then they are the biha rasoolallahu alaihi wa

00:20:34 --> 00:20:36

sallam. He said, it's just a meat that

00:20:36 --> 00:20:38

you're gonna offer to your family.

00:20:38 --> 00:20:40

It's not a korbani anymore.

00:20:40 --> 00:20:42

You lose the rewards of a korbani because

00:20:42 --> 00:20:44

it happened before salat al aid.

00:20:45 --> 00:20:47

So at least it has to hap it

00:20:47 --> 00:20:49

has this has to take place after

00:20:50 --> 00:20:53

your salat. Now if you're sending money back

00:20:53 --> 00:20:53

home,

00:20:54 --> 00:20:55

and the people do it there before your

00:20:55 --> 00:20:58

salat, some early said it is okay as

00:20:58 --> 00:21:00

long as the one who is doing it

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

on your behalf,

00:21:01 --> 00:21:03

he offers the sacrifice or he does the

00:21:03 --> 00:21:06

dabiha after his own salat. He would go

00:21:06 --> 00:21:08

to salat al I, and then after salat

00:21:08 --> 00:21:11

al I, this person will offer the dabiha

00:21:11 --> 00:21:12

on your behalf,

00:21:12 --> 00:21:14

then it should be accepted based on the

00:21:14 --> 00:21:16

fatwa of some highly qualified scholars.

00:21:18 --> 00:21:19

For us to be in the safe side,

00:21:19 --> 00:21:20

you tell them do it after you finish

00:21:20 --> 00:21:23

your salat, but it's not convenient all the

00:21:23 --> 00:21:25

time. Because most of the countries in the

00:21:25 --> 00:21:27

Middle East and our Muslim countries are ahead

00:21:27 --> 00:21:29

of us by 7 hours, 10 hours, 11

00:21:29 --> 00:21:31

hours. And it's very difficult for them to

00:21:31 --> 00:21:34

wait till evening time to do the

00:21:34 --> 00:21:35

the. The most of Muslims like to do

00:21:35 --> 00:21:37

it in the 1st day in the morning

00:21:37 --> 00:21:38

after they finish,

00:21:39 --> 00:21:41

after they finish to complete their salat. So,

00:21:41 --> 00:21:43

anyway, there is a fatwa that says it

00:21:43 --> 00:21:44

is permissible

00:21:45 --> 00:21:47

for this person to do it on your

00:21:47 --> 00:21:49

behalf after he completes his own salat.
