Bismillah

00:00:29--> 00:01:14

spin out I found out a hang up come to the lay of the land I mean for salatu salam on a sort of an MBI when masani Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Cinematheque, America Sleeman kathira D respected brothers and sisters Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. And welcome back to this show where we are discussing the virtues of the first 10 days of the hijab. In the previous episode, we asked a question, and we stopped at that question we never gave an answer for that question. The question is, we spoke about the virtues of the 10 days of the of the first 10 days of the ledger. We mentioned also that Ramadan was a very virtuous time or is a very virtuous

00:01:14--> 00:01:31

time. And we are so encouraged, we encourage, we are encouraged so much to dedicate our time in these times in Ramadan, and in the first 10 days of the ledger, to increase the dhikr of Allah, Allah Allah the specific listed about that.

00:01:32--> 00:02:25

And then we said, does that mean that we should abandon everything else we should abandon our Salah sorry, we should abandon our work, our involvement with our children, our involvement in this society, and we should just dedicate ourselves for the listed a by that and if you remember, we said that the bad can be classified into two types, the listed about that, such as the Salah, the Zika, the cm and the head and the dhikr of Allah, Allah, Allah and so on what is linked to that and what is similar to that, and then unlisted that which is the general activities that we do in our daily life if we do them for the right intention? So the question is the during these precious times,

00:02:26--> 00:02:54

during these times that are large Allah Allah selected them to be very virtuous times? Should we just focus on this on the on the on the listed edit and abandon the other types of AI that the other activities that can turn to be a buy that or not? And the question is, if we can do that, then yes, we should do that.

00:02:56--> 00:03:48

Okay, now I know that this answer is shocking for many people, but this is a reality. See, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was the busiest person in the world, the busiest person in the world. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallahu wa seldom used to dedicate the last 10 days of Ramadan for a tea caf. Tea coffee during get decaf, he was asleeping very little sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was not involved in any matter related to dunya obviously, and he was not even spending time with his families. And as we know that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that or I shall have a lotta and he said about the Prophet sallahu wa sallam that he used to tighten his

00:03:49--> 00:04:47

his waist. What does that mean? Is Does it mean that he doesn't have any sexual relationship with his families? Or does it mean that it means that he wants to work hard? Or that is an indication that he was working hard? Yes. So, the question is, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or the issue is the prophet SAW Selim, who was the busiest person, he was leaving almost everything to what to dedicate himself for a bat. Similarly, during the first 10 days of the hijab, many of the early scholars used to put so much attention to the listed a bar that sorry, WW, who is a student of Indian Abbas used to work hard in during these 10 days in terms of the listed a bar that and others

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

they say, don't put off your lights during the night of the first 10 days of the hedger and other scholars say that wake up your children and so on. There are many narrations

00:05:00--> 00:06:02

About that, why is this as we said previously, that these are selected times by Allah, Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah likes more of the more of the listed a bad luck in these times and he is leaving the rest of the year for us to be involved in the normal activities that can be turned to be a bad that Okay, I think the matter is clear. Now, some people say but what if you need to do this or need to do that? And the answer is yes. If there is something that leaving it will lead to a harm for yourself for your family or for the map then you need to do it even if you are even in these times. So, let us say that there is a person who

00:06:04--> 00:06:56

who doesn't work all the time, yes, and he needs to earn money and the only time for him or during the last 10 nights of Ramadan if he Be careful, if he doesn't work, then his family will suffer. Yes, it is not the fact that he has plenty of money or he has some money. So he can take a holiday during these 10 days, then we say yes, yeah, this person has some money, but if there is a person who does not have money, and if he doesn't work in these 10 nights of Ramadan 10, the last 10 nights of Ramadan, his family will really suffer it is genuine it is between the person and the law, then we say that this person should work because if he abundance work, then he will cause harm for his

00:06:56--> 00:07:41

family okay. Similarly, imagine if there is a doctor and he is needed to run certain operations. And if he doesn't do these operations for certain patients, then they will suffer? Yes, then we say to this person, now you are excused. You have to do these operations. But if there is a doctor that he can delay, yeah, he can, there will be no problem. There will be no harm for himself or for others, then it is better that he dedicate himself for a diet that during the last 10 nights of Ramadan, and during the first 10 days of the hijab, this is the route imagine

00:07:42--> 00:08:37

that the wife yes at home. If she doesn't cook for her family. During these 10 days, yes, her family will suffer. So she needs to cook for them. So hair cooking at that time is considered to be an act of a data. However, my dear brothers and sisters, now, there is a difference between preparing a simple food, a simple meal, and a delicious meal with maybe with 234 dishes. We say that in the last 10 days of Ramadan, just make it as simple as possible to dedicate more time for your a better during the first 10 days of the ledger make it as simple as possible in order to dedicate more time for the listed a bat.

00:08:38--> 00:09:29

Yes, same thing for a politician. Yes, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was a politician, because he was running the country at that time, if he can delay things, until the end of Ramadan, or after the first 10 days of the hedger, then yes, he should do this. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was dedicating himself for a T calf and he used to do a T calf every single year in his life when he was when he migrated to Medina and he was the leader of Muslims in Medina. However, some scholars said that during one year, he could do not to do a T calf in the last 10 days of Ramadan. Then he made them up. Maybe it was that was a during jihad. He was involved in jihad or something like this. And

00:09:31--> 00:10:00

our chef our scholar Sheikh Abdullah bin ghibelline, he explained why it was not confirmed that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was fasting all the 10 days or all the nine days of the first 10 days of the hedger. Every year, it was not confirmed. He said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was involved in jihad in most of these years, or traveling for jihad or coming back from the head. That's why the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it was not the

00:10:00--> 00:10:51

reported that the Prophet salallahu Salam used to fast them every single year, which means that because for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam at that time to leave the house, it will cause harm for not for him but for the oma. And we said the rule is, if you are leaving something that might lead to harm leading it might lead to harm, then don't leave it and that will be your specific a bad okay. Other than that, my dear brothers and sisters, we should minimize the time that we are involved in anything other than the listed a bad dad. And we should focus more on the listed a badger, what are the listed about that, that can be performed in the first 10 days of the ledger?

00:10:51--> 00:11:43

The first thing which we mentioned, that was it was the focus of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Hadith, even when in which he said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, that there are no days in which the good deeds are more beloved and greater to Allah, Allah, Allah than those 10 days of the Elijah. So increase or do a lot of tech beer or a lot of delille saying La la la la, la la la la la la, la la la, la la La Cucina. They're saying tech beer Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar La and me saying Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah and one other narration added test v Suhana. Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah. So these are the very specific Eva that that the Prophet

00:11:43--> 00:12:03

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us to do in these 10 days of the ledger, and inshallah we will continue talking about the specific event that we can perform in the first 10 days of the ledger in the coming episode is akmola Hara Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
