One of the great merits

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

and virtues of

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

these 10 days of the hijab is what

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

Al Hasan al Qasri

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

said.

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

He said that,

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

it

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

was said that

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

fasting one day of those 8 days

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

is equal to fasting

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

1 1000 days,

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

and fasting the day of alafa is equal

00:00:26 --> 00:00:31

to what? To fasting 1 or fasting 10000

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

days. Imagine,

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

my dear brothers and sisters.

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

And I think he took this

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

from the other Hadith when the prophet said,

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

Anyway, that the hasanah is multiplied by 10,

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

and sometimes the hasanah is multiplied

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

up to 700

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

times.

00:00:52 --> 00:00:53

This is in normal circumstances,

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

so Al Hasan al Basri may have understood

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

that Al Hasanah is multiplied

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

in those days

00:01:02 --> 00:01:04

by 1,000 times.

00:01:04 --> 00:01:07

And in fact, he took this from

00:01:07 --> 00:01:10

the people at that time, from the Tabihin.

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

So that's why this hadith has wait

00:01:13 --> 00:01:16

because he said, as Al Bayhaqqai reported,

00:01:17 --> 00:01:20

that it was said. So this is as

00:01:20 --> 00:01:23

if it is known. That's why this hadith

00:01:23 --> 00:01:26

or this statement, although it is not,

00:01:26 --> 00:01:28

it is not the reference to the prophet

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

but it has weight.

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

So imagine

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

fasting

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

one day,

00:01:36 --> 00:01:39

my dear brothers and sisters, in those 8

00:01:39 --> 00:01:42

days of Dhul Hijjah is equal to what?

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

To fasting

00:01:43 --> 00:01:45

1 1000 days,

00:01:46 --> 00:01:47

almost 3 years.

00:01:48 --> 00:01:50

Fasting one day is equal to fast, what,

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

Almost

00:01:51 --> 00:01:52

3 years.

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

And imagine

00:01:54 --> 00:01:57

if that can be extended to any good

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

deed that we do in those 10 days,

00:02:01 --> 00:02:04

it means that any good deed will be

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

multiplied by what? By 1,000

00:02:07 --> 00:02:08

times.

00:02:08 --> 00:02:11

So for example, take the example when the

00:02:11 --> 00:02:12

prophet said,

00:02:18 --> 00:02:20

100 times. Allah

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

will give him

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

5 things. This is the well known hadith

00:02:23 --> 00:02:24

in Bukhari.

00:02:25 --> 00:02:28

As if he has freed 10

00:02:29 --> 00:02:31

of the slaves, of the precious

00:02:31 --> 00:02:33

slaves at that time,

00:02:33 --> 00:02:34

And

00:02:34 --> 00:02:36

Allah will grant him

00:02:36 --> 00:02:40

100 Hasanah. It seems 100 big Hasanah and

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

Allah

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

will remove 100

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

sin from him,

00:02:44 --> 00:02:47

which means big sins as well.

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

And,

00:02:48 --> 00:02:49

it will be

00:02:50 --> 00:02:52

a protection for the rest of his days

00:02:53 --> 00:02:56

for his day, and no one will come

00:02:56 --> 00:02:57

on the day of resurrection

00:02:57 --> 00:02:58

with good

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

deeds equal to the deeds that he did

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

except someone who someone did what he did

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

and more. So imagine

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

you multiply

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

this reward

00:03:09 --> 00:03:10

by

00:03:10 --> 00:03:11

1,000

00:03:11 --> 00:03:13

times because you said this

00:03:19 --> 00:03:21

You said it in those

00:03:21 --> 00:03:22

10 days.

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

You said it 100 times as the prophet,

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

salam,

00:03:26 --> 00:03:28

imagine the amount of reward.

00:03:28 --> 00:03:30

And similarly,

00:03:30 --> 00:03:33

brothers and sisters, imagine the amount of Sadaka,

00:03:33 --> 00:03:36

you gave. Sadaka will be multiplied

00:03:38 --> 00:03:39

by thousands of folds.

00:03:40 --> 00:03:43

Imagine you make your father happy. Imagine you

00:03:43 --> 00:03:45

make your mother happy. Imagine

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

you help someone who is really

00:03:48 --> 00:03:51

in need of help. Of course, the focus

00:03:51 --> 00:03:55

on the specific Ibadat, the prophet mentioned

00:03:56 --> 00:03:59

in the hadith and leave the other things

00:03:59 --> 00:04:00

because the prophet

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

said, there are no days in which the

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

good deeds are more beloved

00:04:05 --> 00:04:08

to than the deeds performed in those 10

00:04:08 --> 00:04:11

days. In what narration? He said increase

00:04:13 --> 00:04:14

which means

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

saying saying

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

and, of course,

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

recitation

00:04:23 --> 00:04:25

of Quran and those specific outcome.

00:04:26 --> 00:04:27

In one narration,

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

the Sahaba understood that

00:04:29 --> 00:04:30

those

00:04:30 --> 00:04:33

10 days of the rihija are meant for

00:04:33 --> 00:04:34

these specific Ibadah

00:04:35 --> 00:04:37

because they asked the prophet even

00:04:38 --> 00:04:39

good deeds

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

are better than going for jihad, You Rasulullah,

00:04:43 --> 00:04:46

doing good deeds in those 10 10 days

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

better than going for jihad, You Rasool Allah?

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

And the prophet

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

said, yes,

00:04:51 --> 00:04:54

better than going for jihad except for someone

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55

who left for jihad,

00:04:55 --> 00:04:58

and he lost his life. He lost his

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

wealth as well.

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

That is an exception, which means that there

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

are specific

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

needs to be performed

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

in those 10 days of the hija. My

00:05:09 --> 00:05:11

dear brothers, my dear

00:05:11 --> 00:05:13

sisters, why do you lose them? Why do

00:05:13 --> 00:05:15

we lose them? Saying

00:05:16 --> 00:05:17

as if you have said it, what,

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

1,000

00:05:19 --> 00:05:20

times. This dua,

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

100 times

00:05:28 --> 00:05:30

as imagine the amount of reward you will

00:05:30 --> 00:05:33

get when you say in those 10 days.

00:05:33 --> 00:05:34

That's why

00:05:35 --> 00:05:36

the prophet said,

00:05:36 --> 00:05:38

there are no days

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

in which the good deeds are more beloved

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

to Allah

00:05:41 --> 00:05:44

than those 10 days of.
