in Nasta can Hadith Kitab Allah wa Arsenal had you had you Mohammed in sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or Sharon Morimoto third Taha Wakulla Mata in Vida Aquila Bella and Bella Allah will close in for now. Brothers and Sisters in Islam are hotbar is about the Day of Arafah and we're speaking about the Day of Arafah. Today because it is the best out of the 10 best days of the year. The 10 days of the hedger are the best days of the entire year and this is the best day amongst the 10 best days. We're speaking about the day of the autofab because because it is the central point of Hajj and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Alhaji Arafa Hajj is thought of as if all of Hajj is just in the

00:02:40--> 00:03:11

Day of Arafah. The scholars said, Where does this name come from? Arafa and you see the letters raw or ain raw fat. And there's which means from out of which means to know and to recognize and to acknowledge. So they're saying that on this day we acknowledge and recognize our sins before Allah subhanaw taala or we recognize Allah azza wa jal himself on this day.

00:03:12--> 00:04:03

Other scholars said that it's called The Day of Arafah because sama Ara flew out. The inhabitants of the heavens got to know the inhabitants of the earth Yanni. They're introduced to them on this day as they're worshipping Allah and making dua to Allah subhanaw taala and other said is from the root our Rafa which Allah subhanaw taala uses in the Quran are you the hello hello Ginetta are Rafa ha Allah whom he enters them into a Jana and Rafa here one explanation that he made it known to them. And so in the Hadith the Prophet Salam describes that you will find your house in a Jana and you will recognize the way to your house in a Jana more than you recognize the way to your house here on

00:04:03--> 00:04:11

Earth. So that's how they will find Allah made it recognizable and made it known to them and they will recognize their eternal homes in agenda.

00:04:12--> 00:05:00

The other explanation of our Rafa Allah home is that he made it fragrant for them. So when you enter the house and it smells good, so the house is so well prepared, that It even smells good. And the link between that and the Day of Arafah is that Allah subhanaw taala will cleanse people of their sins and He will beautify them with the fragrant fragrance of forgiveness. And so Muslim and Nabi SallAllahu sallam said, you cut through sunnah and mowdy talking about the fasting of the Day of Arafah you got fertile soil Madea was sent out Kabita that it expiate the sins of a past year and a coming year. So over 700 Nights and Days of minor sins will

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

will be forgiven just by fasting this one day alone. And on this day especially, you're getting the virtue and the reward of fasting, or the day of alpha itself. So there is the Day of Arafah that virtue, and then there's a day of Friday, and there is the reward of fasting, all three are put into one day, the day of alpha today, because it's on a Friday. It's a Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, there is no day on which Allah frees more people from the Hellfire than the day of alpha. So we have two years of forgiveness of minor sins, we'll have it as the best day out of the 10 best days of the year. It's the central point of Hajj. And on top of that, Allah subhanaw taala

00:05:47--> 00:06:29

will not free more people from the Hellfire than this day. And let the scholars say when you when you're freed from the hellfire, they liken it to when someone has or if someone freeze a slave for the sake of Allah. You can't come the next day and ask them to do anything because when they're free, they're never enslaved again. So if Allah subhanaw taala frees your neck from the Hellfire you're never under the threat of going to the Hellfire again, but there is no date on which Allah subhanaw taala frees more people from the hell Hellfire than the Day of Arafah when the WHO Laird new sama Yuba he beat him when melodica for coal ma Radha Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala also draws

00:06:29--> 00:06:44

near just like in the last third of the night, Allah subhanaw taala draws nearer and another Hadith Abrar Salam said yinzhou era summer Illa sama dunya that Allah Allah descends in a way that befits his greatness in His Majesty to the worldly heavens.

00:06:46--> 00:06:57

And we know also from the Hadith that shaytaan is never the Iblees Satan is never more humiliated ever than on the Day of Arafah.

00:06:59--> 00:07:04

And in the book of a Tirmidhi Nabi SallAllahu sallam said highroad da da

00:07:05--> 00:07:52

yo me out of the best of the best of supplication is a supplication on the Day of Arafah will Jairo my call to Anna whenever you and I'm in Cubberley. And the best of what I and the prophets before me have said is La ilaha illallah wa hola Cherie Keller, LA who will Mulk wala who will hummed wahala coalition in Kadir, the best of what I and the prophets before me have said, is La ilaha illallah there is no God worthy of worship except Allah. He has no partner law who will Mulk to him as the Dominion and to Him is all praise will who are under coalition and Khedira and he is the one who is capable of everything. So a number of things. First of all, the scholars said why is it the best day

00:07:52--> 00:08:39

for dA b? They said because it is a federal job it is more in reward, and greater and baraka and blessing and greater chance of it being responded to. But what we just said Latin and Hola Hola. Hola. Hola. Sharika Dolman caller Hello, hello hello coalition. Some of the scholars said that's how you start off your DUA the Hadith says the best guys on the Day of Arafah then the problem said Leila Hello Hola. Hola. Hola. Shake it up to the end. So so some scholars said this is how you start off your dua you say this and then you start making your DUA and others explained that this actually is a dog even though you don't hear a dua How is it a DA they said DA is of two kinds do our Ole

00:08:39--> 00:09:19

Miss Allah and dua, Athena to masala is when you're asking Allah subhanaw taala Oh Allah grant me paradas ALLAH forgive my sin, you're actually asking Allah oxygen. And then there's the DUA, Athena, and that's when you're praising Allah the dua of praise. So they said, This is dua of priests. And like we said, other said, You say this first, and then you start making your DUA, and then in the second football Shala, we're going to talk about the importance and what to do in your DUA. On this day of Arafah holo cola was stopped for Allah Allah them, Lee welcome in general. First off thoroughfare flows will Mr Vereen ask Allah Subhana Allah for his forgiveness Indeed, those who ask

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

His forgiveness shall prosper?

00:09:35--> 00:09:42

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. I mean, what early he was so happy

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

about

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Arafah and the Day of Arafah, there is the baraka of the day, but meaning the bulk of the time, and there's the bulk of the location. So if you're in hajj, obviously then you get

00:10:00--> 00:10:50

To have the baraka of being at the location, but for the rest of the world who is not a hutch you get to enjoy and join in the baraka of the time. But as for those in the place, Allah subhanaw taala he says, a birdie on the Day of Arafah Joe Guney shorter than mean Khalifa genomic, my servants who have come to me, unkempt and disheveled from every distant Road, your June agenda that they're hoping for my Jana. So their job on the day of Arafa and Nabi SallAllahu, Sallam arrived at Arafa. And then he combined the horse and the answer together. So that means it combined them closer to the time of the horse. And then he after the salaat started to make da until McGraw. And even when he

00:10:50--> 00:11:14

needed to do something with one hand, he kept one hand up and DA and he did it with the other hand, and then he went back to making continuous draw, it's about six continuous hours of making dua. And it's not an easy task. And he there are people who attempt it, and they fall asleep and they run out of things to say, and then they get bored, but they some people wake up and go back to the art. So

00:11:15--> 00:11:52

you're supposed to ask Allah subhanaw taala from the best of this world and the next life and ask Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness, because this is the day when Allah subhanaw taala forgive sins. That's why Allah says in the Hadith mentions that Allah's Will says follow Karna Vu Buka either the Rahman Katha ROM that if your sins were like, of the numbers of the grains of sand, of the grains of sand in the world, and you understand, like how, what person would have that many sins, but Allah subhanaw taala says, if your sins were equal to the number of the grains of sand of the world,

00:11:54--> 00:12:04

or to the number of the drops of rain, in the world, Oak has ever delivered or like the form of the ocean or the seas, that I will forgive you

00:12:05--> 00:12:28

that I will forgive you. And that's why at the end of the day, Allah subhanaw taala says are filled with a body mug for unlocking Waldmann Java to Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala says, you will be forgiven and go forth, you will be forgiven. And those that you made dua for or you interceded for. So how to make dua on the Day of Arafah.

00:12:29--> 00:13:10

As we said before, a couple of days ago, that if you're able to take time off free up this time from Azur until Maghrib so no one distracts you, you don't have to go to work, that will be excellent. Most people right out there do and those who don't plan ahead for their dua. They in the end, they run out of things to say they run out of people that you can't remember people, but those who plan in advance you can fill up hours upon hours of making dua to Allah azza wa jal. So you have the obvious ones, you make dua for your parents, you for your relatives, siblings, for your children, for your siblings, children and so on and so forth. But you make dua for your teachers as well.

00:13:12--> 00:13:38

Not just Islamic Studies, teachers, but all your teachers, your teachers who taught you math when you were younger, overseas or whatever it is, do remember all these people you remember your neighbors and make dua for them. And it's good when you can make dua for people by name and you can lump everyone in one place yeah ALLAH forgive all my friends, but but that's not very specific. And you have a lot of time. You can go to your friends one by one Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah,

00:13:39--> 00:13:49

he used to make dua, every single winter, every day of the year, for 100 of his teachers by name.

00:13:50--> 00:14:02

And you can you see this dedication and this loyalty, that every night when he prays with a prayer he makes the offer 100 of the people who taught him by name, and every single night

00:14:03--> 00:14:22

you can shortcut it Oh ALLAH forgive all my teachers and give but he mentioned them by name. That's loyalty. That's dedication. Mention your neighbors by name your teachers by name your friends by name their children, your relatives by name your uncle's go through them one by one, your grandparents, your parents, your siblings, their children.

00:14:23--> 00:14:34

Ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect you from every station on the day of judgment from the punishment of the grave from the difficulty of standing on the day of judgment from the heat from every one of the stations go through it

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

so that's why it becomes an you can fill hours and hours making dua so today after you pray us or inshallah free up some time for making dua finished the earth car and that is we have to also prayer and sit and raise your hands but we're here we're aiming high. So you when you aim high, you want to raise your hands and not put them down until mothering

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

That's the highest you're aiming for. But if not, you might stop and talk to a family member or express something to a wife or a child. There's nothing wrong with that. You might get tired and sleep and rest or go make will do again or come back. But the point is that you aim for the best and you're trying to make continuous dua, from answer until mother's asking Allah subhanaw taala it's an opportunity of forgiveness. It's a day when Allah subhanaw taala answers your DUA. And the reason Allah subhanaw taala informed us of that, so that we can take advantage of it and what's the value of knowing all this information and not acting upon it? So with that, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to

00:15:38--> 00:16:19

accept our fast on this day, and to accept our do as for our friends and for our family members, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept the Hajj of those who are currently overseas performing the rites of Hajj. And we ask Allah azza wa jal to make us of those who hear the truth as clear truth and follow the best of it and to make us of those who recognize falsehood as clear falsehood then abstain from it.
