Why is the Day of Arafah the most valuable day to the Muslims? I will share with you two reasons in sha Allah bear with me May Allah bless you. Number one, it was the day the day of alpha on which Islam was completed the halal and haram was pretty much finalized. Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a few months before he passed away. On the day of alpha, he gave a speech. At the end of the speech, it was during the farewell hajj, he asked the crowd a question. The crowd consisted of more than 100,000 people, he asked them and are held, beloved, have I conveyed the message? Have I done my job with all these years of prophethood? Have I conveyed the message clearly and understood by
all of you? Allah help, beloved, all the Sahaba said, Alana. Yes, of course you did. He asked again, Allah helped, beloved, have I conveyed the message, and they all said, Allah Now, of course you did that one last time. One last time. He asked for the third time, Allah helped Beloved, you sure I conveyed the message. I've done my job. Oh, the Sahaba said Allah Nam Yes, you did. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told Allah Allahu Mephibosheth Oh ALLAH bear witness of their affirmation. Oh, Allah bear witness that they have confirmed that I've done the job. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the Sahaba therefore now that you comprehend it, you
understood you confirm you affirmed. Don't you ever go back to Kufa don't go back to Cofer of disbelief in the old days of oppressing one another and killing one another. Don't go back now that you understood and you comprehend. Now, this is a standard Islam was complete. And Allah revealed the very famous verse from Surah Al Qaeda chapter five, verse number three part of it al Yom acmella to lecom. Dina come today I have completed your religion. What's meant to ally come near Mati and I completed my favorites upon you. What are the two local Muslim Medina and I am pleased Allah saying I am pleased Islam to be your religion, Allahu Akbar. So this is one of the reasons. The second
reason is something that happened a long, long, long time ago. Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that Allah subhanho wa taala, during the time when Allah created Prophet Adam, our father, when Allah created Adam, he pulled from Adam's back from the loins of Adam, all of Adam and his salaams progeny, all the children, male and female, were basically presented in front of Allah. You were there. I was there, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was there, all the progeny was there. And we know something Allah created in every human being in the default settings, default settings, that we are inclined to believe in La ilaha illallah, there's one God to be
worshipped. Every human being in their system is called fitrah. The innate nature Alhamdulillah. Meaning if you have someone with this nature that is pure, if you tell them about Islam, clearly, this nature innate nature will recognize it and would accept it. As long as this nature has not been polluted, and not been corrupted. May Allah protect us? Yeah. So when Allah created Adam and all that creation, and was pulled from the back of Adam, that system being installed in them, everyone had the filter on, everyone had the innate nature, okay? Allah subhanho wa Taala when he presented all the human beings and we were there, Allah asked us all ls to be or become MI, not your Lord.
Allah asked that question on the day of Arafa, Allahu Akbar, Allah has a calendar Allah to him, there are 12 months in the year. And on the day of alpha, which happens to be on Dhul Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic calendar, he asked us this question ls to be or become MI, not your Lord. Now the progeny we were there, we recognized Allah, our system, there's filtro there is Islam. So when we saw Allah, we were inclined to realize this is Allah who spoke to us, it is Allah who created us. So we all said Bella, Yes, surely you are our Lord. Then Allah said to us, do not come yeomen piano and see in kuna and had the roughing in I never knew about this. I don't know what
you're talking about. Don't come on the day of judgment and say, I don't understand what's going on.
I never felt there's no importance of God things of that sort. No, the inclination is there. If you ever hear the message of Islam conveyed clearly to you, and the Hojo has made no excuses for you, then you should follow and you should adhere to it. So in both stories, both examples I gave to you, the Sahaba confirmed they understood the message from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day Fada and many many decades and centuries and millenniums ago Allah asked us and we confirmed this default settings is working very well your Allah You are our Lord, because of those wonderful moments. Allah made the day of out of the greatest day of the whole year. That is why the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Whoever fasts the day of Allah, Allah forgives, two years worth of sending the year that passed, and the year that will come Allahu Akbar how honorable is that day and another blessing of this day? How you to do it the best time to ever make dua in your life is on the Day of Arafah your heart will be accepted on this day more than any other time and date. May Allah accept our dot May Allah bless you and allow you an AI to be able to fast and make dua to Allah and do as many good deeds as possible. Thank you so much as salaam alaikum
