00:01:26--> 00:01:31

My dear brothers and sisters are loss of Hanna who were to Allah created everything.

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

He created everything places and times.

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

And he creates what he wishes.

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

Were up buka Hulu nyesha Dr.

00:01:46--> 00:01:50

Your Lord creates what he wishes and what he is pleased with.

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

And among the things that Allah has created

00:01:57--> 00:01:58

his time

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

and this time that Allah has created just like everything else.

00:02:05--> 00:02:16

Allah has made some better than others. Just like certain places allow me to better than others. Mecca Medina mystery the locks on

00:02:19--> 00:02:33

the masajid are better than any other place. Likewise, Allah subhanahu wa tada has chosen certain times certain months, certain days, certain hours to be better than others.

00:02:34--> 00:02:42

In Narita, schoharie in the law, his name is Sharon Sharon fee kita de la Yamaha la casa de Waal. Oh,

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

mean ha, Aruba.

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

law tells us in Surah, two tober

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

that

00:02:55--> 00:02:58

the monks are 12 in the sight of Allah

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

on the day that Allah created the heavens and the earth,

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

but of these 12 months, Allah has made for to be secret.

00:03:10--> 00:03:14

And among these four months is the month that we are currently in.

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

And of this month,

00:03:22--> 00:03:26

the first third of the month is more special than the rest of it.

00:03:29--> 00:03:36

And so the days in which we are in right now, the first 10 days of this month of the ledger,

00:03:37--> 00:03:38

which began

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

on Wednesday.

00:03:42--> 00:03:51

These days are the best days of the year. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said of the alpha of Allah yummy dunya

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

and assured

00:03:55--> 00:03:57

that the best days of the dounia

00:03:59--> 00:04:02

or the first days of the month of June,

00:04:03--> 00:04:13

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a woman yummy in Alma yummy in the law, he terracotta holla Yo man now

00:04:14--> 00:04:21

and the best day the greatest day in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the 10th of Dhul hijjah

00:04:22--> 00:04:26

the day of the day of slaughter, the day of the heat.

00:04:28--> 00:04:34

And these days Allah subhana wa tada swore by them took an oath by them in the Quran. When,

00:04:35--> 00:04:36

when

00:04:38--> 00:04:48

I was sworn, took an oath by Alfa john and Linda showed the 10 knights, the majority of the scholars of tipsy

00:04:49--> 00:04:57

from those harder and those who came after them, say what is meant by these 10 nights or the first 10 of them.

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

And so because these days are

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

special

00:05:01--> 00:05:14

because these days are virtuous. Allah subhanahu attallah need good deeds and data to be more beloved to him than at any other time of the year.

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:05:19--> 00:05:27

Man you in a Yamin, Eliana lasala to fee ha ha ha boo era la he mean heavy Hill idea

00:05:30--> 00:05:38

that there are no days in which good deeds righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah

00:05:39--> 00:05:42

then during these days,

00:05:43--> 00:05:54

and so the companions asks young Rasulullah what LG had to face Joby? Rila not even performing jihad in the path of Allah

00:05:55--> 00:06:07

because they knew that this is one of the best of dudes. And so they asked if a person was to go out for Jihad outside of these days in any other time of the year.

00:06:09--> 00:06:36

And yet a person was to come in these days and performs a lot fast do any kind of good deeds, that person in these days doing these deeds is better than the one performing Jihad outside of these days? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, what else he had to feed Sabir Illa Illa Raja hora Harada be the cure. He was from New York.

00:06:38--> 00:06:58

He said no, not even jihad in the path of Allah, except a man who goes on in Jihad with his with his self and his world and he doesn't come back with anything meaning that he has martyred he attains Shahada in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

This Hadith was narrated by Abdullah bin abdus radi Allahu Allah,

00:07:05--> 00:07:08

and the one who narrated it from him was given to me.

00:07:10--> 00:07:20

It is reported that Sarah Reed had been Jubail when these 10 days would come these first days, these first 10 days of the hedger said he

00:07:22--> 00:07:26

would devote himself to a better to such an extent

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

that if a person wanted to find him, he wouldn't be able to find him.

00:07:33--> 00:07:34

He wouldn't be able to meet him.

00:07:36--> 00:07:42

And so the seller they used to spend these days in the event of a loss of Hannah Montana.

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

These two devote themselves

00:07:46--> 00:07:51

and they used to seclude themselves in the event of Allah subhanahu Adana

00:07:53--> 00:07:57

and not busy themselves with anything else.

00:07:59--> 00:08:09

Allah Subhana who were to add alternate alternates the day in the night, Allah subhanahu wa tada alternates the days and the months.

00:08:11--> 00:08:13

Days go by weeks go by.

00:08:14--> 00:08:16

months go by.

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

And our state is

00:08:23--> 00:08:27

that we are heedless of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

We are heedless

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:36--> 00:08:42

And the duty that Allah has placed upon us living our lives in this dunya

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

heedless neglectful

00:08:46--> 00:08:49

of what Allah subhanho wa Taala has commanded us with

00:08:52--> 00:08:55

neglectful and heedless of where we're heading to.

00:08:58--> 00:09:05

heedless of our appointed term, death is on our doorstep and yet we're heedless of it.

00:09:08--> 00:09:12

The SRO is our home, and yet we're heedless of it.

00:09:13--> 00:09:20

Because of this, Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses certain times of the year

00:09:21--> 00:09:22

to bring us back.

00:09:24--> 00:09:27

It is due to the mercy of Allah subhanahu attallah

00:09:28--> 00:09:34

that He has given us such opportunities, because he knows that our nature is to be heedless.

00:09:37--> 00:09:42

And unless we are reminded we would remain in that heedless state.

00:09:44--> 00:09:56

Allah subhanahu wa Tada. out of his mercy to us, he has given us another chance and he continues to give us chance after chance opportunity after opportunity.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

The deprived or

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

Those

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

who when such opportunities come,

00:10:05--> 00:10:13

they're still not reminded. They still remain in their neglectful state, in their heat in their heedless state.

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

And so it is a sign of a weak man.

00:10:18--> 00:10:23

That when such times come, when such virtuous days come,

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

a person doesn't care

00:10:28--> 00:10:51

and his habits don't change. And he doesn't turn to Allah in devote the bad. He doesn't turn to Allah with good deeds. He doesn't turn to Allah in repentance. But he remains as he is, until these days go by. And even once they're gone, he's not remorseful, he doesn't feel that he missed out on anything.

00:10:52--> 00:11:02

My dear brothers and sisters, if you missed out on the chance to be forgiven by Allah subhanho wa Taala in the month of Ramadan

00:11:05--> 00:11:12

if you missed out on the chance to be from among those who were saved from the from the Hellfire

00:11:14--> 00:11:16

in the month of Ramadan

00:11:17--> 00:11:23

as we know in every night in Ramadan, there are those who Allah saves freeze from the hellfire.

00:11:25--> 00:11:37

If you missed out on that opportunity, then you have another chance. These days are a chance for us to turn back to Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:11:38--> 00:11:45

Edna Josie Rahim Allah He says, virtuous nights and days should not be ignored.

00:11:46--> 00:11:53

Because if the businessmen the merchant wants to ignore profitable seasons,

00:11:55--> 00:11:57

then when else will he make profits?

00:11:58--> 00:12:01

In the dunya there are certain times there are certain seasons

00:12:05--> 00:12:08

for making profits, holiday seasons,

00:12:09--> 00:12:17

if the merchant and the businessman was to ignore such times, than when else would he make profit?

00:12:18--> 00:12:31

And so my dear brothers and sisters, what should we be visiting our site ourselves with? What should we be busying our time with? During these 10 days, which are beloved to Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:12:33--> 00:12:38

First and foremost, we should be turning to Allah in repentance

00:12:39--> 00:12:43

for our sins, and for our past.

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

Turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala with a clean heart,

00:12:48--> 00:12:52

turn to Allah subhanahu wa tada with a remorseful heart

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

for the sins of the past.

00:12:57--> 00:13:00

After that, focus on

00:13:02--> 00:13:07

the forums, that which Allah has made obligatory upon each and every single Muslim.

00:13:09--> 00:13:15

There is no point in devoting yourself to a bad in that which is voluntary.

00:13:16--> 00:13:23

If you're slacking off on that, which is obligatory, it doesn't make sense. If you're not getting up for so often.

00:13:24--> 00:13:30

And you're praying after it's time, what is the point of praying now often

00:13:34--> 00:13:38

and I was just told that there are certain youth today

00:13:39--> 00:13:44

who are still not coming for Joomla and they're praying Joomla at home

00:13:47--> 00:13:49

even though the massage would have opened.

00:13:51--> 00:13:58

So, not all Joomla is obligatory upon each and every single male who has reached the age of puberty

00:13:59--> 00:14:07

and we have no excuse, because the massages are open and more than one salata Juma is available.

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

And so, we need to focus on that which Allah has made obligatory upon us first, after that,

00:14:17--> 00:14:19

after that, move on,

00:14:20--> 00:14:27

to those acts, which are most of which are beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala the extra

00:14:28--> 00:14:33

whether it be Salah, whether it be fasting, whether it be soda,

00:14:35--> 00:14:36

whether it be a thicker

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

and so my dear brothers and sisters

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

have been hedger.

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

He talks about why these days have been made special. And he says, it seems that the reason for why the first 10 days of the hedger have been made special is because the prime acts of the Habad

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

come together in these 10 days

00:15:04--> 00:15:10

and he says, A sola fasting, saw the car and hedge

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

and we can add to that proclaiming to heat.

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

The Bajaj they're proclaiming, Toshi. What are these? These are the five pillars of Islam.

00:15:23--> 00:15:36

They come together in these 10 days, he says, and that is not the case with any other days of the year. And so work hard in these days and do not be from among those

00:15:38--> 00:15:44

who are deprived of the mercy of Allah of the reward from Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:15:45--> 00:15:57

for this is an opportunity of a lifetime. Don't delay. Don't say I have next year. I have many years ahead of me. But rather consider these days

00:15:58--> 00:16:08

to be your last opportunity for no one, no matter who he is, can guarantee himself to live for even another day

00:16:09--> 00:16:27

00:17:40--> 00:17:41

they conclude

00:17:42--> 00:17:46

and the end with the best of these days.

00:17:47--> 00:17:53

And so the ninth and the 10th, or the best of these 10 days.

00:17:56--> 00:17:58

The day of our offer is the ninth of the fifth.

00:18:01--> 00:18:09

And the sun does not rise on any day better than the day of the hurricane.

00:18:10--> 00:18:15

Nor does it set on any night better than later today.

00:18:17--> 00:18:24

And so, just like Rome avant ends with the best of knights likewise,

00:18:26--> 00:18:49

these days in with the best of days. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said about the day of the night of the Ranger, which insha Allah, Allah will be next Thursday. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Ma'am in Yeoman XL Rahman and your article la houfy minnaar. Minami Harada

00:18:50--> 00:19:00

that there is no day in which Allah subhanho wa Taala frees more people from the Hellfire then on the day of Harada

00:19:03--> 00:19:27

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He goes on to say, talking about how he subhanho wa Taala boasts about those who are his obedient slaves on this day. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, we're in Allahu Allah delu Dona Yuga he be a holy hour of Allah.

00:19:29--> 00:19:37

And Allah subhanho wa Taala draws near Allah Subhana Hua data, just like he draws near and comes

00:19:38--> 00:19:57

to the lower heavens in the last third of every night, on the day of arafah. In the last part of this day, Allah subhana wa tada draws near, and then he boasts to the melodica about the people standing on the plains of Africa.

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

This is why this day is special.

00:20:03--> 00:20:08

It is special for those who are standing on the plains of Africa.

00:20:10--> 00:20:11

But it is also special

00:20:12--> 00:20:26

for the rest of the Muslims around the world. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he encouraged us to fast on this day. And he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, so Yama Yama refer

00:20:27--> 00:20:31

to Cebu Allah he and ucap Pharaoh Sen. Latif Kabbalah

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

was sin Attila T. Bader.

00:20:35--> 00:20:39

He said, that I hope from Allah,

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

that fasting on this day on the day of Harada.

00:20:44--> 00:21:01

The expiate the sins of two years, of the sins of the year gone by, as well as the sins of the year to come. And so do not busy yourself with anything on this day on the day of a hurricane.

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

Besides the bad of Allah subhanho wa Taala even Ambassador the Allahu Allahu Allah, he would encourage the people to remain in the massage it on this day, devoting themselves to the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so the day of arafah

00:21:21--> 00:21:36

is a day not only to be fasting on, but also to be worshiping Allah, with as much Salah as you can, as much do as you can, the last part of the day from us to McRib, seclude yourself

00:21:37--> 00:22:22

and devote yourself to making dua to Allah subhanahu wa Tada. This is a time to be making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala just like the people on Hajj during this time from us or to Missouri, or standing, making the art to Allah subhanho wa Taala and also frequent your tongue with the remembrance of Allah subhanahu wa taala not only on the day of the hot offer, but wrote these days, these days, or days of dicker the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, After talking about how these days are special for performing good deeds, he said for FC roofie hin Mina has really attacked me

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

so frequently,

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

frequently.

00:22:28--> 00:22:29

C'est

00:22:30--> 00:22:40

la ilaha illallah wa, frequently say Allahu Akbar, frequently say Alhamdulillah throughout these days,

00:22:41--> 00:23:25

and then on the day of starting from solo till further until the last of the three days of read after every Salah we should be glorifying the loss of Hannah who would Tana by saying it could be Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar La ilaha illAllah Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, Allah Hill hemd we should be saying this after every Salah starting from sonatas verger on the day of Hanukkah, but before that from now, until then, we can be saying this frequently wherever we are not restricted to after or before Salah. We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to make us from among those

00:23:27--> 00:23:45

who busy themselves and there are times in that which is in that which is pleasing to Allah subhanahu attallah during these blessed days, during these virtuous days, we ask Allah subhana wa tada to forgive us our sins and to make us from among those who are saved from his punishment.
