00:00:59--> 00:01:01

00:01:10--> 00:01:13

00:01:15--> 00:01:20

sakala who the he found the Jews fasting that they have Ashura?

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked them

to Moosa

00:03:40--> 00:04:04

we are entitled to be we are more entitled than you to be followers of masa than you for sama who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fasted this day. And he commanded the rest of his companions also to fast it

00:04:05--> 00:04:24

and at one stage, fasting martial law was mandatory was mandatory. But later on it was abrogated. Lucy ha, be Samia Ramadan when Allah subhana wa tada Tada. Allah ina.

00:04:25--> 00:04:29

Sha one Mohan. Yeah, you're Latina Morocco who swam

00:04:31--> 00:04:39

Ayesha Ramadan, her brothers and sisters in Islam. This is the reason why we fast on this day.

00:04:40--> 00:04:49

Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fasted, and he commanded his companions to fasted and there is an addition out there

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

that Rasul Salallahu alaihe. Salam wanted to distinguish us like always from the people

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

The book once it comes to their worship, always brothers and sisters in Islam, a Muslim is unique once it comes to the rituals he observed, and once it comes to the way he looks,

00:05:13--> 00:05:28

hacker there are some subtle lavalieres Allah mentioned that if I am to live next year, this is the day this is just the year right before his death, I will fast

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

ID before it so that

00:05:34--> 00:05:37

you know, I will distinguish myself from

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

yahood from Bani Israel from the Jews.

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

Because our Muslim like we said is unique.

00:05:47--> 00:05:55

Of course Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away and that should not state that he is

00:05:57--> 00:06:04

we could fast That's right, which is the day before it. Or we could fast A day after the 11th

00:06:05--> 00:06:23

all we good fast, so I Ashura and the 11th three days it's up to you. But fasting one day, which is the day of Ashura, gamma jihadis, educated about the Allahu anhu one Hadith, Mr. Muslim,

00:06:24--> 00:06:31

the Hadith which talked about both fasting, the day of alpha that it will expiate

00:06:32--> 00:06:57

the sins which are Muslim committed, the year before and the year after, and fasting, the day fashola, will expiate the sins which were committed in the previous year. So imagine fasting this day, brothers and sisters in Islam, you will receive the reward of

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

expiation of sins

00:07:01--> 00:07:20

of a Holy Year. Imagine this, but be careful. This only applies to the minor since not the major since memorize this line brothers and sisters in Islam and our slow field cabaye ed at toe back to

00:07:21--> 00:07:28

the basic rule or the default rule regarding major sins.

00:07:30--> 00:07:34

For you to get rid of them in this world is to make Toba

00:07:35--> 00:07:43

Of course, in the Day of Judgment, Allah Subhana Allah may grant you the intercession of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:07:45--> 00:07:58

He said shafa it liat lil Gabba Erie min o Matic, my intercession will be to the people who committed major sins from my own

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

life region Layer Layer region, regional level acquirement met him in a nap, Bishop it use ammonal Johann me, Allah subhana wa tada will take out of Hill, certain Muslims because of my intercession, they are cold that you handed me because they spent a long time in jahannam so now this is if you wait if you keep piling up the major sins until you die with them. That's your chance Allah would forgive you to worry that it will cover every

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

machine that he will have who commit major sins of under the will of Allah subhanaw taala but of course for you to

00:08:45--> 00:08:49

get the best out of the 10th of Muharram.

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

inshallah, which is going to be on Monday,

00:08:53--> 00:08:56

according to the moon siding in Saudi Arabia,

00:08:57--> 00:09:14

is to make Toba from the major sins and to fast the 10th of Muharram Ashura then Mashallah you get a clearance a cleansing in the late Allah and major sins brothers and sisters in Islam our sins which

00:09:15--> 00:09:16

relate to the

00:09:19--> 00:09:27

delight of others, you know, but mainly they are connected to the wrongdoings against other people.

00:09:29--> 00:09:48

Surya Carl can be lying, cheating, false testimony of those three. Normally it's a form of injustice, a form of injustice. But I remind you with the statement of Herbalife now Best of the love and humor, which really kind of throw the

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

or clarify the criteria to distinguish a major sin from a minor sin when he said last year Rama Rama is Rob Wallach

00:10:00--> 00:10:47

You're a master thought. There is no such a thing you call a minor sin when you insist on it. So actually insisting on a small sin which the criteria of major sins do not maybe cover but you insisting on a minor sin with turn it into a major sin keep doing it with turn it into a major sin and there is no such thing that you go a major sin when you come back out own you come to Allah subhana wa tada out of it. The light on fire this is the reason why brothers and sisters in Islam. We absorbed fasting on this day and this is the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companion. Of course, on this day, we found

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

two groups of people.

00:10:51--> 00:10:56

One group who exercise excessive grievance

00:10:57--> 00:11:01

over the death of the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:11:02--> 00:11:27

Saying of their loved one, well, I have brothers and sisters in Islam, we love earning the visa love it or sell them dearly. We love the family of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dearly, we love him, and we love his family. And we implement his waffling regarding his family. We love them, but we love who we love the righteous and the pious of them. And

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

Hussein is one of them and

00:11:32--> 00:11:43

his brother will Hasson and his family and we love them dearly. And we believe that the proceeding was killed unjustly.

00:11:44--> 00:11:53

But we we believe that brothers and sisters in Islam that this is something, something that Allah Subhana Allah ordained upon him,

00:11:54--> 00:12:08

like the Sahaba, who died in embedded, and we exercise, the servitude of patience, and also the control over

00:12:10--> 00:12:16

the Griffins. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when his own son Ibrahim

00:12:17--> 00:12:22

passed away. He cried. He said, Indeed the ideas

00:12:23--> 00:12:26

and the heart greets.

00:12:28--> 00:12:29

And we are saddened

00:12:31--> 00:12:46

because of your departure. Oh Ibrahim because of your death, oh Ebrahim. But we're not going to say anything, which would show that we are not accepting the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala imagine on this date, you will find

00:12:48--> 00:12:51

a lot of ignorant people, we call them that.

00:12:53--> 00:13:00

Going out and expressing their grievance in a way that reflect geryon

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

was also a lot of us and a

00:13:06--> 00:13:23

few Hadith Sahih les Salman, and by the way, les semina. He is not one of us is one of the criteria to be mentioned. that anything that comes after it is a major sin. Lay Salman Nam a lotta man who dude is not one of us.

00:13:24--> 00:13:40

The one who would slap the cheeks like this, the grief over the death of somebody will shackle you or who would deal down the claw whatever have is our idea here or he would act

00:13:41--> 00:13:54

in an ignorant way that we use the people who do not believe in Allah who do not believe that Allah subhana wa tada is the one who will things to happen for wisdom and Allah subhanho wa Taala will never will things to happen

00:13:56--> 00:14:12

which we consider bad unless there is a divine wisdom behind it. And unless there is something good out what will come out of it. We believe that and that is why we say the law when I share a thought especially the generations brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:14:13--> 00:14:20

which can use later What benefit do you do? If you go out out there and use these

00:14:21--> 00:14:59

iron rings the the the data and the chains and and you make yourself bleed and and you cry? What benefit do you get? What benefit do you get? Will you bring them back? Will you bring him back but their loved one as a fan, but their loved one as a fan. Especially if you use this tool in order to divide the common order to start, you know talking about this companion or talking about this predecessor in a certain way. It may it anyone who passed away brothers and sisters in Islam

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

By law, he went back to a loss of Hannah Montana. And we are not to talk about that in a way that is not pleasing to them. Brothers and sisters in Islam again,

00:15:13--> 00:15:51

because some people accuse Arizona, that we do not love it. We love our living, but we love the righteous and the pious of them. Abu lahab is one of the people who hurt rasulillah salam ala rasulillah heard the message of Islam. He died as a Catholic and he is an uncle about it, right? But Hamza will act as we love those will have an athlete brothers and sisters in Islam. We love the righteous of them, but we love them in a way that pleases Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and do not take us out of the

00:15:53--> 00:16:00

etiquettes and and get us to commit sins. So this is one group, which exercise

00:16:02--> 00:16:12

excessive grievance over the death of the grandson of the prophets of Salaam which have, which happened on this day the day of Ashura as well, according to historians.

00:16:14--> 00:17:04

And those are Shia. Shia, in the other hand, you have in now Asad Subhana, Allah, certain people who show excessive joy in order to combat the other group we call them and now acid now slowly and then either they have animosity against Holly and both group or astray both groups are straight brothers and so that's why they go out they bleach coffee in the eyes in this day, and they go and eat food and an offer food and they show Julian and that is all with as brothers and sisters in Islam. This day has nothing to do with the depth of a crusade. The Sunnah, says that this is the day on which Allah subhanho wa Taala saved Musa and Benny Islam in the early Muslims they were the Muslims at the

00:17:04--> 00:17:51

time, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made it crystal clear that we are the follower of Musab because we follow Moosa. You see the people who claim to be followers of Moosa. Now, if they want to be the followers of Musa they need to accept Jesus Allah is Allah and to accept Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then they will be true followers of Musa and this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meant by the statement. Now, no, I have to be mu salmon whom, because moose has said that there is a messenger who will come I want you my followers to follow him. And there was also a lot to talk about the loved one, when he when he brought down some of the writings

00:17:51--> 00:18:06

of Venezuela eating Medina, he, he rasulillah became upset and he said well lahoma by the one who's had my soul is oma, if if Moosa will come down, we'll come back tomorrow he will not follow anyone but me, you will not follow.

00:18:07--> 00:18:30

Another su sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that prophet Esaias salatu wa sallam will descend again because he was not crucified, and he will pray behind the Imam of the Muslims. He will be a follower of Islam, brothers and sisters in Islam. So if you want to be a true follower of Moosa, you need to follow Rasulullah the final mandate the final messenger? Yes.

00:18:31--> 00:19:20

The early followers of musataha salat wa salam, when Moosa was there the message of though it was La ilaha illAllah musar Rasulullah. That is fine. That is why we call them the Muslims. And that is why we commemorate their salvation. And that is why we live the minute like them. But right now, later on the message game, became La la la la Isa Rasulullah. And now it's led ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, so if you want to be a true follower of Musa, you need to accept those two, Isa and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is what is meant by the statement of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to his companions. We are more entitled to Moosa than them, and we

00:19:20--> 00:19:46

should be commemorating the salvation of Musa and Benny Israel, because they are our ancestor Muslims. They are the Muslims at the time, brothers and sisters in Islam. Hopefully, we clarify, why do we fast that they have Ashura Jazakallah phalanx of panic alarm over hamburger Chateau La Land to a while hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen
