A peaceful yet motivating talk on the rulings of Eid prayers, i.e. Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Adha in addition to emphasizing on saying of takbeer in the days of Dhul Hijjah, rulings on the timings, takbeer and surahs to be read in Eid prayers, importance of celebration on the days of Eid and enjoining kinship.
About the rulings of the eight prayer. Now before the eight prayer, the Muslim is encouraged to mention the tech appear to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is in both aidilfitri and aidil of her.
When the Muslim knows that
Ramadan is over, then he is recommended to start the year. And that's what Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, well he took it that way to keep your Allahu Allah Maha Dhaka.
At the moment you know that Ramadan is over, you start the career until the Imam comes and starts the prayer of the unfaithful on a dial up however, the VA is recommended from the first day of the hedger. Now people
are encouraged to worship Allah subhanaw taala more all types of worship in those days, and the technosphere in particular is also recommended. It's one of the best deeds that a Muslim could come close to to Allah subhanaw taala with and according to my other bingeable Rahim Allah, it was the best deed ever. Because Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, well avec la jolla Akbar. And indeed, the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala is bigger is better. So,
there is a maximum of fit according to the scholars, that whenever there is ibid that is temporary, specified in a specific time. It is recommended to be done in that specific time. That's why on Friday, it's recommended to say the prayer on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam because on this day, you are rewarded more and when the person is involved in hajj and he starts the Haram is recommended to say the Tobia that bake alarm and bake and that's the only time he has for this hybrid. So whenever you have a time specified for a specific type of a bad, you need to increase from doing that a bad on the day of delivery. People who are performing hajj they are saying they tell BIA and
people who are not performing hajj they are remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they are getting also the reward from Allah azza wa jal. And that's why the second year on the month of the ledger begins from the first day that that query is general
then there is a specific that could be
during the the hedger the days of the ledger, and that begins after the prayer of the ninth day of the ledger that they have on offer. This year is specific.
In time, after every obligatory prayer, it's recommended for the Muslim to say this year until the answer prayer of the 13th of the ledger, the third day of the Shrek until that day, until the answer prayer, the tech Eros are said after every prayer, those are specific that can be yours. But that's not the only time that the Muslim is remembering Allah subhanaw taala the Muslim remembers Allah subhanaw taala at all times, and in particular, on the day of faith. And after those prayer, these specific decorators, some scholars, they reported the narrations from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about the form of tech beer, which is Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illa Allah
Allahu Akbar Allah Allah Ilham, that's the form of technology that was reported from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. There are other forms that the Muslim could say. They were not reported from the prophet SAW Selim, but any remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala is accepted, yet always follow the specific deck can be of that game from Allah's Messenger sallallahu sallam, some people, they are in their works, or they are out in the streets, and they are shy from saying the tech career say it aloud, you are a Muslim, and show people that you are obeying Allah subhanaw taala, the companions of the Prophet sallahu wa salam whenever they entered the marketplace, whenever they
said that there could be people who would hear them and they would say with them that that could be because the companions became reminders of the obedience to Allah subhanaw taala so you also become a reminder for the people that they remember Allah subhanaw taala they mentioned Allah subhanaw taala we thank Allah subhanaw taala for those beautiful days, those joyous days, that Allah subhanaw taala has given us once the day of faith comes then
we pray the eight prayer in congregation and it is recommended for the prayer of a defeater on the day after Ramadan to be delayed because the sooner
Prophet sallallahu wasallam is to eat first, to break the fast
to eat, and then to pray for it, while the sun in idle up ha, is to pray first, and then eat. And that's why scholars recommended that they ate prayer On the fifth day to be later. And the eighth prayer on the day of ABA to be early. And the time of prayer begins after the sunrise with the size of a spear, and some scholars estimated that with 10 or 15 minutes, that's when the time begins. So if the sunrise is at 615, for example, then the prayer would begin at 630. It doesn't have to be at 630. It could be 645, it could be seven o'clock. And for either fetter, it's recommended to delete so if it was delayed 15 minutes, half an hour or even an hour, it is permissible. People can pray
until before the Zenit until before the advent of the lord of prayer. All that time is time for an atomic prayer and either federal prayer. Now, the prayer of eight is recommended to be done in congregation and some scholars said it is mandatory. It is not only recommended
it has to be done. And it's a sign and a symbol of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala and Allah says in the Quran, woman you have Lim sha Allah for in the hammer taco lube, and he who honors who respects the symbols of Allah. It is a sign of the righteousness of the hearts. When the Muslim intends to go for the prayer, it is recommended to take a bath. And there is no specific evidence from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. But the scholar said that every congregation, it's recommended for the Muslim to be in the best shape. And since the prophets are seldom recommended taking a bath before Friday prayer, it's also recommended to
take a bath before the eight prayer and it's also recommended to wear the nice clothes and the best clothes that the Muslim has. You are showing your celebration. Some people they go to their eight prayer and then they go back and then they try they change their cloth and they are dressed up very well. The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is to be dressed up in your best clothes for the eighth and that's why the companions said the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had two clocks, one of them escaped and saved for the eight prayer.
So try to go in your best clothes and Allah subhanaw taala instructors in the Quran. Yeah, Benny Adam Hello, Xena Takamine the Kalima Street. Take your adornment at every Masjid meaning show your best adornment
at every message. This is what the Muslim should do generally, whenever he is in the prayer. And specifically, in the eight prayer, when you come to the eight prayer, it's recommended for the Muslim to come from one route and to leave from the other route,
different route. This is only in the eighth prayer. And the scholars mentioned that there is a reason for it. Because there were there will be angels outside in the street. And they are shaking hands with you, even though you don't see them, but they see you. And that's why a defector is called yo Mangia is the day of price. Because the angels they are shaking hands, and they are turning in your rewards. Same thing in a lotta you come from one route and you go back from another route. This is only in the days of fate, not in other days. So you would see more people you would see different people and also the angels different angels will pray for you. When you come for the
prayer. The Prayer is to be done in congregation and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is to pray the eight prayer outside the masjid in a prayer area. And the difference between the masjid and the prayer area is that the prayer area is where people pray occasionally, while the masjid is where people pray regularly. So the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim is to pray the aid in the masala open area. Unless there is an excuse. There is weather difficulty then people can pray in the masjid. But the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim is to pray in the masala and people until now they know where the masala of the prophet SAW Selim used to be where he used to pray the eight prayer. It
was not the same place where the masjid was, it was a different place. And there are many benefits for that where Muslims can come
All of them, even woman, even those who have excuse not to pray, who cannot pray, still they need to come because of the hadith of Omar. And I'm sorry, or the Allah Juana where the prophet SAW Selim instructed the companions to bring everybody the entire household, including wives, including daughters, everyone comes, they witness the prayer, and they witness the death of the Imam. So they witness the good that is happening from this congregation. So this is a reminder for the parents, for the leaders of the household, to bring the entire family
bring the entire family for the eighth prayer. When you come to the eighth prayer, the prayer begins with it.
And there is a specific that can be reformed the Imam in the eighth prayer, Allahu Akbar, seven times in the first record, and five years, seven, five times and the second record, excluding the first decade of the harem, and excluding the first year of movement. These are two tech beers separate. So when you come and the Imam says Allahu Akbar,
he says after that seven times, and you repeat with him seven times, and on the second record, he says five times, and you repeat with him five times. Also, scholars differ whether you raise your hands with every tech beer, or you keep them and you just say Allahu Akbar. That's a difference of opinions. Whatever you do, is not going to affect the prayer. It's recommended, the stronger opinion is that you raise your hands with every year
when you raise your hands with every year. Some scholars also recommended to say something, they said that the prophets I seldom used to remember Allah subhanaw taala between every year if you keep silent and you don't say anything, that is also permissible. Now, when you come to the eight prayer, since the prayer is prayed in the masala in the prayer area, it's not msgid so you don't pray anything before the prayer. Nor you pray anything after the prayer. That was the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when you come to the masjid, there is a center for domestic diet and Masjid. But when you come to the aid prayer, there is no similar neither before nor after if it was
prayed in the masala in the prayer area, and a sort of the law one says, I pray to the prophets I sell them more than once more than twice the eight prayer and there was no prayer before it not after there was no event or a comma. So there is no other for the eight prayer nor there is a common
in those prayer of both federal federal and state law, they are prayed to Raka in the first Raka
they are prayed aloud and the Imam says after Surah Fatiha he recites Surah Al Allah and in the second Raka he recites Surah tallahatchie just like what's recommended to be said in the prayer of the Juma some scholars and this is also reported in an authentic narration inside Muslim they say that it is recommended to recite surah off in the first record and in the second raga It is recommended to say Surah Al kamar. So, whatever the Imam reads, whatever you read, it is permissible. But this is the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that you pray to Raka with the Imam in the first Raka This is what is recited and in the second block and this is what is recited.
Now, if someone missed the prayer,
some scholars said it's not made up this prayer is not made up. Other scholars said no, he can make up this prayer. And he prays it whether he was alone, or a group of people came together they can pray also together after the prayer. After the eight prayer there is the hotbar. Unlike the Juma prayer, in the Juma prayer, people sit and listen to the speech. And then they pray. In the both it's either faith and a lot ha, the prayer comes first. And then the hotbar comes next. And some people immediately after they finished the prayer, they go and leave it is recommended to sit and wait. Some of the rulers of the Muslims they changed that. And they wanted to keep the people to
force them to sit and that's why they used to keep the hot but before the prayer and then they pray. But the son of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is to pray first. And then to say the hotma even if people left that's their mistake. Wait for a few minutes to listen to witness the the fact Allah subhanaw taala and this is a reminder for the huddle up
For the fellow Imams, not to prolong the hotbar too much, it's a good reminder for people, but there is nothing binding them to sit. So it's good to be short and precise in the speech of the eight, because people want to go and celebrate the eighth. Now also, this is a reminder for the brothers and sisters who are coming to aid prayer. It's only two times a year, only two times a year. And some people they are failing to be on time. Imagine you fail to come on time to your work.
And very few people do that because they know the consequences. Whenever they are late to work. First time maybe they are excused second time, maybe they are excused and maybe they would be given a notice. Third time or fourth time, they are jeopardizing their job.
What about the aid prayer, it's only twice a year. Make sure that you come early. Make sure that you don't wait until the last minute and then you go and you try to catch up. It's only twice a year that Allah subhanaw taala See you in that time sitting and waiting for the prayer and obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now some people they are keen to attend the eight prayer and they are encouraged to do that. And may Allah subhanaw taala reward them for doing that. Yet Unfortunately, they miss the sub prayer, which is more obligatory. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, warm at Aqaba la have dbca in LA Masato Ali, and my servant would not come close to me with anything lovelier than what I made
obligatory upon him. So prayer is obligatory on everyone.
But the aid prayer, some scholars said it's not mandatory, yet we see some people, they are making sure that they attended prayer, yet they missed the prayer, they are not making the best of eight. Eight is a manifestation of our happiness of our appreciation, thanking Allah subhanaw taala. So it is not consistent with disobeying Allah subhanaw taala by missing this prayer, let's make the eighth our commitment to obey Allah subhanaw taala thanking him for what he has given us. It's recommended in the aid to visit the family and the friends and to join the kinship. Some people unfortunately, they keep their wives working all day. And when the eight comes, they keep them busy in cooking,
instead of joining the happiness and sharing the celebration of the eighth. And some sisters complain that in the month of Ramadan, for the entire days of fasting, they were busy in the kitchen. So they could not witness the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala they could not pray on time, they could not read the Quran a lot. And then when the eight came, they were also busy. Some children are complaining that they are not having time to see their parents. This is the time in the lead to remove any
hatred and any grudge that is in the heart. It is time to shake hands whenever you shake hands with your Muslim brothers and sisters. Whenever this happens, the sins are dropped
and you are forgiven. So if in the eighth, you did not join the kinship, you did not forgive when it will be when will be the time to forgive. This is a reminder that we need to overcome our differences. We need to put aside
our problems, there is a time for happiness. And indeed, it's a worship to Allah subhanaw taala when you are showing your celebration, yes, there are many Muslims around the world who are suffering, who are having problems and troubles. But still, we should show our happiness because that's what the enemies of Islam want. They want to remove any happiness while the Prophet sallallahu Sallam himself approved of the celebration of the eighth. And during the eight prayer there, the red days, there would be things that are not done in other days.
Like in the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the ABC News were playing in the masjid. They were playing in the masjid. And the prophet SAW Selim may die Chateau de la look at them. So there is celebration, and Amara della Han enter to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam where some woman were saying the Enter sheet, the songs and he rebuked them by the prophet SAW Selim told him to stop.
let the people know that there is flexibility that there is break. This day is day of celebration. So the day of
April 5, and the day of the law is a day of celebration and the profits on the line itself.
I'm said that the days of the shriek the three days after the day of the law, they are days of eating, drinking and remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
we ate, and we drank. And we need to thank Allah subhanaw taala for what he has guided us.
That's what is recommended for the Muslim to do on the days of faith. These days are days of obedience to Allah azza wa jal, the Hajaj they are obeying Allah subhanaw taala by throwing the pebbles by sacrifice, and the Muslims around the world, they are celebrating the eighth, joining the kingship, remembering Allah subhanaw taala celebration of aid does not mean that we sin against Allah subhanaw taala. Some people they have the misconception that on the day of aid, they can do anything they want.
The day of aid, as some scholar said, every day, you obey Allah subhanaw taala. Every day that is free of sin is a day of faith. And one time also one of the pious predecessors, he saw one of the people laughing out aloud on the day of faith and he said, I don't know why they are celebrating, if they obeyed Allah subhanaw taala that's not how they show appreciation. And if they sinned, that's not how they fear the punishment from Allah subhanaw taala. So we celebrate, regardless of the agonists that are going on, we celebrate on those days have faith, and we thank Allah subhanaw taala for them, and we wish for every Muslim and every human being happy days. Those are our two days, no
one can take the happiness on those two days from us. We are to show the happiness we are to show people that Islam is a perfect religion. We have days of a bad which are all the days and in those days, those two days we have celebration that we celebrate in the masjid as the seniors did, and outside the masjid, visiting ourselves, our families showing our happiness all these are objectives of aid. I asked Allah subhanaw taala for every one of us to have a happy and to accept from us the best deeds, how there was some Lahore Salim ala nabina Muhammad Ali or savage main salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
