Do you know why it is important for you and I to keep track of the Islamic Hijri calendar? We just started the year 1443. Yes, since the integration of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from Mecca to Medina and according to Allah, there's a calendar Allah established yes as Allah says in the Quran, in the show who reigned Allah Heath now Sha Sha, Allah subhana wa Tada. The calendar, according to him, is based on 12 months since when fee kita biLlahi. oma halakhah semma. What are the scoundrel was established since Allah created the heavens and the earth, these lunar base 12 months is what our worship tied to, for example, when we say the day of alpha, when is it? Obviously
it's based on the history calendar. When does Head Start when is the author and editor photo. And when is the car if you were to pay your cow once a year, it's not based on the Gregorian calendar January or February or March, you cannot say I will pay the first of every March. The first payment or the off your record, the annual payment is based on the history calendar. The days are different than the Gregorian calendar, we have to pay close attention to that, even for example, the waiting period of the one who got divorced, it is tied to the Hijri calendar. So we should have some sort of relationship with it and keep track of it as much as we possibly can know Allah says out of the 12
months mean arbeiten forum, there are four of the 12 that are sacred, there's special emphasis on it. What does that mean? Allah says, then he can Dean on him for lovely movie Morphe. In Wooster calm, this is the right way. This is the wait for you to establish your life and run by this calendar. Why so you make sure you do not wrong yourself, especially in these four sacred months. What are some characteristics of a sacred month, just like for example, how we are supposed to be away from oppression. And there's extra punishment for the one who commits sin on these months. Similarly, you will get multiple reward if you do good deeds, as some of the scholars have said, to
die off will has enough equally mccannon was a man and father the good deed is multiplied in every location and every time that is known to be blessed. So we have to pay close attention to that. And now we are in the first month of the Islamic calendar, the month of Allah and Muharram and brothers and sisters in that month. What happened? One of the worst oppressors of all time one of the worst tyrants, Allah subhanho wa Taala had destroyed him Alhamdulillah in this blessed month of Muharram. When Allah subhanho wa Taala saved mu Sally seller, how do we know this? Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, when not he said sorry it was said about
him. When he came to Medina, he saw the hood the Jews fasting on the 10th day of alcohol on the 10th day which is known as Ashura Ashura, 10, Ashura the 10th day of Ramadan Okay, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him Maha then do malaria. So Mona, what is this day that you are fasting? So they said this is a great day. This is the day Allah saved Moosa and his people and drowned and destroyed Pharaoh and his people. And moose. Moose are assembled from 1000s of years ago, used to fast the 10th day of Muharram. Why shukra out of gratitude, thanks to Allah that He saved him and the believers with him. Then, the people said as a result of Moses fasting, we fast.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, We love Moosa, we relate to Moosa more than you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam started to fast the day of Ashura and told the Sahaba to fasted as well. Now you may say Allahu Akbar, is there a reward attached to this? Yes. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, we'll see ya Mui omya Shura the fasting of the 10th day of Muharram. I hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala that it will forgive all of the sins that were committed the previous year. So all of last year 1442 and then I'm sorry, I'm saying this in 1443. So all of 1442 Allah would erase all the sins that were committed Allahu Akbar, to seek to fast this day. May

Abbas said in authentic narration, he said I have never seen the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more eager and excited to fast a day out of the whole year, more than the day of Ashura, Allah Akbar and of course in addition to the month of Ramadan, and just one last thing before I end, Rasool Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon knowing that they only they are who the Jews fast only the 10th day of Muharram he said in sha Allah by the will of Allah subhanaw taala next year, so nearly omata said I will add in addition to the 10th day, I will add one more day to being different and Allah will reward us as well and he will fast then ninth day of Alamo Harlem May Allah protect us
Mr. Pillai Allah mean and make it possible. However, things happen and how Medallia Salatu was Salam passed away before the next year came where he said he will fast inshallah the ninth.
