My dear respected brothers, sisters, elders.

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

He was Khalilullah.

00:01:23 --> 00:01:23

And Allah

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

loved him.

00:01:26 --> 00:01:27

So he tested him.

00:01:28 --> 00:01:29

In each test,

00:01:30 --> 00:01:31

by the help of Allah SWT,

00:01:32 --> 00:01:34

he proved true

00:01:35 --> 00:01:36

to his covenant with Allah.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:38

So Allah

00:01:39 --> 00:01:42

gave him the job of building his house,

00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

the Kaaba.

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

He was Ibrahim

00:01:47 --> 00:01:48

Allah

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

Allah

00:02:22 --> 00:02:24

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:02:25 --> 00:02:26

said which means

00:02:27 --> 00:02:28

and remember

00:02:28 --> 00:02:30

when we assigned to Ibrahim,

00:02:30 --> 00:02:33

alayhis salaam, the sight of the house saying,

00:02:34 --> 00:02:36

do not associate anything with me in worship

00:02:37 --> 00:02:40

And purify my house for those who circle

00:02:40 --> 00:02:41

the Kaaba.

00:02:42 --> 00:02:43

The people who make tawaf.

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

Who stand in prayer

00:02:46 --> 00:02:49

and who bow and prostrate themselves.

00:02:50 --> 00:02:53

Call all people to the Hajj, to the

00:02:53 --> 00:02:54

pilgrimage.

00:02:54 --> 00:02:56

They will come to you on foot

00:02:56 --> 00:02:59

and on every lean camel from every distant

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

path.

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

So they may obtain the benefits in store

00:03:03 --> 00:03:06

for them and pronounce the name of Allah

00:03:07 --> 00:03:11

on appointed days over the sacrificial animals, meaning

00:03:11 --> 00:03:12

make the sacrifice

00:03:12 --> 00:03:15

he has provided for them. So eat their

00:03:15 --> 00:03:18

meat and feed the destitute, the poor.

00:03:20 --> 00:03:21

The Hajj

00:03:22 --> 00:03:23

is the story of Ibrahim

00:03:24 --> 00:03:25

and his family

00:03:26 --> 00:03:27

and the test,

00:03:27 --> 00:03:29

the test they faced and passed.

00:03:30 --> 00:03:32

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala loved this so much

00:03:33 --> 00:03:35

that he made their actions

00:03:36 --> 00:03:37

the the rights

00:03:38 --> 00:03:39

of the greatest

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

act of worship.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:43

The reward of which is complete forgiveness

00:03:44 --> 00:03:45

from all sins.

00:03:46 --> 00:03:48

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala made Hajj

00:03:48 --> 00:03:51

for all those who can afford it.

00:03:51 --> 00:03:52

And he said,

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

in

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

Allah

00:04:18 --> 00:04:18

said,

00:04:19 --> 00:04:20

which means surely

00:04:20 --> 00:04:22

the first house of worship

00:04:23 --> 00:04:23

established

00:04:24 --> 00:04:25

for humanity

00:04:25 --> 00:04:28

is the one at Mecca, a blessed sanctuary

00:04:29 --> 00:04:30

and a guide for all people.

00:04:31 --> 00:04:33

In it are clear signs

00:04:33 --> 00:04:36

and the standing place, Makam Ibrahim,

00:04:37 --> 00:04:39

whoever enters it would be safe.

00:04:39 --> 00:04:42

Pilgrimage to this house is an obligation by

00:04:42 --> 00:04:42

Allah

00:04:43 --> 00:04:46

upon whoever is able to among the people

00:04:46 --> 00:04:47

to do it.

00:04:47 --> 00:04:49

And whoever disbelieves,

00:04:49 --> 00:04:52

then surely Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is not

00:04:52 --> 00:04:54

in need of his creation.

00:04:55 --> 00:04:56

The reciting of the

00:05:08 --> 00:05:10

The reciting of the Talbiyah declares

00:05:10 --> 00:05:11

that we are

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

ready

00:05:13 --> 00:05:16

to obey Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala without question

00:05:17 --> 00:05:18

because we know Allah

00:05:18 --> 00:05:20

and love him

00:05:21 --> 00:05:24

over anyone and anything else.

00:05:24 --> 00:05:27

Then we donned, we put on the haram

00:05:28 --> 00:05:30

for the man, 2 pieces of 1 stitch

00:05:30 --> 00:05:31

cloth.

00:05:31 --> 00:05:32

Nothing

00:05:32 --> 00:05:35

else to remind ourselves of our reality

00:05:36 --> 00:05:37

and how we will be dressed

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

when we leave this world.

00:05:41 --> 00:05:42

Sean,

00:05:44 --> 00:05:46

of all our worldly symbols of wealth and

00:05:46 --> 00:05:47

status.

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

This reminds us of the true brotherhood of

00:05:50 --> 00:05:51

faith

00:05:51 --> 00:05:53

in which the single adhesive

00:05:53 --> 00:05:54

is our connection

00:05:55 --> 00:05:57

with Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:05:58 --> 00:06:00

Everyone reciting the same talbia.

00:06:01 --> 00:06:03

Everyone making the same declaration.

00:06:03 --> 00:06:06

Everyone seeking the same goal, which is the

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

rida of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. The pleasure

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

of Allah.

00:06:10 --> 00:06:11

True brotherhood

00:06:12 --> 00:06:12

that transcends

00:06:13 --> 00:06:16

all boundaries of color and race and nationality

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

and tribe and social rank.

00:06:19 --> 00:06:21

It reminds us of how we all will

00:06:21 --> 00:06:24

be gathered before Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala on

00:06:24 --> 00:06:27

a day where everyone will get justice.

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

We ask Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala for His

00:06:30 --> 00:06:30

mercy.

00:06:31 --> 00:06:33

Then we go to the next stage

00:06:33 --> 00:06:35

of making Tawaf of the Kaaba

00:06:36 --> 00:06:39

and praying in the place of Ibrahim alaihi

00:06:39 --> 00:06:40

salam, which

00:06:41 --> 00:06:44

Allah made a place of worship

00:06:44 --> 00:06:46

and he called it one of his signs.

00:06:47 --> 00:06:49

We follow in the footsteps of our mother

00:06:49 --> 00:06:50

Hajar Alaihi Salam,

00:06:51 --> 00:06:54

the wife of of Ibrahim Alaihi Salam and

00:06:54 --> 00:06:54

we emulate

00:06:55 --> 00:06:56

her actions

00:06:56 --> 00:06:57

in the Sahih

00:06:57 --> 00:07:00

of climbing the 2 hills of Safa and

00:07:00 --> 00:07:03

Marwa and running between them in the valley.

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

She did it because she was looking for

00:07:06 --> 00:07:09

help for herself and her infant son.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:12

We do it because she did it.

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

The actions of 1 woman

00:07:15 --> 00:07:15

became

00:07:16 --> 00:07:17

the rituals

00:07:17 --> 00:07:18

of worship

00:07:19 --> 00:07:21

performed by every *

00:07:21 --> 00:07:22

of every race

00:07:23 --> 00:07:25

from every part of the world for the

00:07:25 --> 00:07:27

last 5000 years.

00:07:28 --> 00:07:30

Performed by all the prophets and all the

00:07:30 --> 00:07:31

messengers

00:07:31 --> 00:07:32

and performed by

00:07:38 --> 00:07:40

Muhammad These actions demonstrate the essence

00:07:41 --> 00:07:42

of

00:07:43 --> 00:07:44

of Hajar alaihis salam.

00:07:45 --> 00:07:47

That Tawakkul does not mean

00:07:48 --> 00:07:50

to do nothing and wait for victory.

00:07:51 --> 00:07:52

It means to make effort,

00:07:53 --> 00:07:54

the maximum effort,

00:07:55 --> 00:07:55

but to rely

00:07:56 --> 00:07:57

on Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:07:58 --> 00:07:59

for the results.

00:08:01 --> 00:08:03

Our arms and legs and back get tired,

00:08:04 --> 00:08:05

but the heart is at peace.

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

In Hajj Allah

00:08:09 --> 00:08:10

reminded us

00:08:10 --> 00:08:13

about the final and greatest test that Ibrahim

00:08:13 --> 00:08:16

Alaihi Salam and Ishmael Alaihi Salam faced.

00:08:16 --> 00:08:18

1 at an advanced

00:08:18 --> 00:08:19

age

00:08:19 --> 00:08:20

when he

00:08:21 --> 00:08:23

had finally been blessed with a son that

00:08:23 --> 00:08:24

he had been

00:08:25 --> 00:08:28

asking and begging Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala for

00:08:28 --> 00:08:29

for decades

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

and the other one

00:08:32 --> 00:08:33

as soon as he was old enough

00:08:34 --> 00:08:35

to walk with his father.

00:08:36 --> 00:08:38

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala told us about this

00:08:38 --> 00:08:39

and he said,

00:08:57 --> 00:08:59

Then when the boy reached

00:08:59 --> 00:09:02

the age to walk with him, Ibrahim said,

00:09:02 --> 00:09:04

oh, my dear son, I have seen in

00:09:04 --> 00:09:07

a dream that I must sacrifice you.

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

So look

00:09:08 --> 00:09:10

in your heart, what

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

do you see?

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

He replied, oh, my dear father,

00:09:16 --> 00:09:17

do as you are commanded

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

and Insha Allah,

00:09:20 --> 00:09:23

you will find me among the steadfast.

00:09:25 --> 00:09:26

I always marvel at this conversation

00:09:27 --> 00:09:28

whenever I read this ayah

00:09:29 --> 00:09:31

between a 90 year old father

00:09:31 --> 00:09:33

and his little son who is seeing his

00:09:33 --> 00:09:34

father

00:09:35 --> 00:09:36

effectively for the first time.

00:09:37 --> 00:09:39

He was raised by his mother

00:09:39 --> 00:09:41

in an alien environment

00:09:41 --> 00:09:42

among strangers

00:09:43 --> 00:09:45

who didn't even speak their language.

00:09:47 --> 00:09:49

Ismail Alai Salam and Hajar Alai Salam learned

00:09:49 --> 00:09:51

Arabic. It was not their language.

00:09:52 --> 00:09:54

They came from Phoenicia, from Samaria.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:56

They learned Arabic from the Yemenis who came

00:09:56 --> 00:09:57

there.

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

Yet,

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

when his father

00:10:01 --> 00:10:02

asked this question,

00:10:03 --> 00:10:05

see the answer of total submission that he

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

gets.

00:10:06 --> 00:10:07

After all,

00:10:07 --> 00:10:09

he was the true son

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

about the one

00:10:11 --> 00:10:13

whom Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala was the witness.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:16

And Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala declared,

00:10:21 --> 00:10:23

When his Rabb ordered him submit

00:10:24 --> 00:10:27

to my will, he responded, I have submitted

00:10:28 --> 00:10:29

to the rub of all the worlds.

00:10:31 --> 00:10:32

And then Allah

00:10:33 --> 00:10:35

told us what happened.

00:10:37 --> 00:10:38

Ibrahim.

00:10:39 --> 00:10:41

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala spoke to him directly.

00:11:03 --> 00:11:05

Then when they submitted to Allah's will

00:11:05 --> 00:11:08

and Ibrahim Alaihi Salaam laid him on his

00:11:08 --> 00:11:09

forehead or on the side of his head

00:11:09 --> 00:11:10

to sacrifice.

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

We called out to him. Oh, Ibrahim,

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

you have already fulfilled

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

the vision.

00:11:18 --> 00:11:18

Indeed,

00:11:19 --> 00:11:20

this is how we reward

00:11:21 --> 00:11:22

the doers of good.

00:11:23 --> 00:11:24

That was truly

00:11:25 --> 00:11:27

revealing a very severe test

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

And we ransomed his son with a great

00:11:30 --> 00:11:31

sacrifice

00:11:32 --> 00:11:34

and blessed Ibrahim, alaihis salaam

00:11:34 --> 00:11:35

with honorable mention

00:11:36 --> 00:11:37

among

00:11:37 --> 00:11:38

later generations.

00:11:39 --> 00:11:43

Today 1400 years 5000 years not 5000 years

00:11:43 --> 00:11:45

yet, we do the same thing.

00:11:45 --> 00:11:47

In Hajj, we remind ourselves that we are

00:11:47 --> 00:11:50

enacting a way of life that is beloved

00:11:50 --> 00:11:50

to Allah.

00:11:52 --> 00:11:54

A life of obedience without question.

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

In the journey of Hajj, we begin by

00:11:57 --> 00:11:59

reminding ourselves that one day we will meet

00:11:59 --> 00:12:00

Allah

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

in the state that we came into this

00:12:02 --> 00:12:03

world

00:12:04 --> 00:12:06

without any of whatever

00:12:06 --> 00:12:07

we accumulated.

00:12:08 --> 00:12:10

We live the actions of the family that

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

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala praised for their obedience

00:12:13 --> 00:12:16

and honored them by turning their actions into

00:12:16 --> 00:12:17

rights of worship.

00:12:18 --> 00:12:20

Then we sacrifice the the animal

00:12:21 --> 00:12:22

symbolizing our desires

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

that are the root of our problems

00:12:26 --> 00:12:29

and emerge from this beautiful Ibadah

00:12:29 --> 00:12:31

clean as the day we were born.

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

Muhammad

00:13:14 --> 00:13:15

Muhammad.

00:13:17 --> 00:13:19

See how Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:13:19 --> 00:13:22

honored the one who obeyed him.

00:13:22 --> 00:13:24

In every salah

00:13:24 --> 00:13:25

after Tashahood,

00:13:26 --> 00:13:27

in Durud Ibrahim,

00:13:27 --> 00:13:30

we mentioned the name of Ibrahim and

00:13:30 --> 00:13:32

we send salah on him and his family.

00:13:35 --> 00:13:36

We are in the blessed

00:13:37 --> 00:13:39

days of Dhul Hijjah,

00:13:40 --> 00:13:42

the blessed 10 days which Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:13:42 --> 00:13:44

Ta'ala mentioned in the Quran and Allah Subhanahu

00:13:44 --> 00:13:45

Wa Ta'ala

00:13:46 --> 00:13:48

took an oath by these days where he

00:13:48 --> 00:13:49

said, by

00:13:51 --> 00:13:53

the dawn and by the 10 nights.

00:13:55 --> 00:13:56

And others

00:14:02 --> 00:14:04

They said that this refers to the first

00:14:04 --> 00:14:06

10 days of the hija.

00:14:09 --> 00:14:11

Reported that said,

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

there are no days in which righteous deeds,

00:14:15 --> 00:14:16

good deeds

00:14:16 --> 00:14:18

are more beloved to Allah

00:14:19 --> 00:14:20

than in these 10 days.

00:14:21 --> 00:14:22

In another place,

00:14:22 --> 00:14:24

with slightly different wording.

00:14:26 --> 00:14:26

Narrated

00:14:27 --> 00:14:28

which means

00:14:28 --> 00:14:30

there is no deed, there is no action,

00:14:30 --> 00:14:31

more precious

00:14:31 --> 00:14:33

in the sight of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:14:33 --> 00:14:35

nor greater in reward

00:14:36 --> 00:14:37

than a good deed, any good deed

00:14:38 --> 00:14:41

done during these 10 days of sacrifice.

00:14:42 --> 00:14:44

The people asked him, sallallahu alaihi wasallam,

00:14:45 --> 00:14:45

You Rasulullah

00:14:46 --> 00:14:49

sallallahu alaihi wasallam not even jihad for the

00:14:49 --> 00:14:51

sake of Allah and he said not even

00:14:51 --> 00:14:53

jihad for the sake of Allah except in

00:14:53 --> 00:14:55

the case of the one who went out

00:14:55 --> 00:14:57

to fight giving himself and his wealth

00:14:58 --> 00:14:59

in the cause of Allah and did not

00:14:59 --> 00:15:00

return.

00:15:03 --> 00:15:06

These texts and others indicate that these 10

00:15:06 --> 00:15:09

days are better than all the other days

00:15:09 --> 00:15:11

of the year without any exception.

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

Not even the last 10 days of Ramadan

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

but the last 10 nights of Ramadan

00:15:17 --> 00:15:20

are better because they include laylatul khalaf

00:15:20 --> 00:15:22

which is better than a 1000 months.

00:15:24 --> 00:15:25

And this is

00:15:26 --> 00:15:26

how

00:15:27 --> 00:15:28

Allah Ibn Kathir

00:15:29 --> 00:15:31

reconciles the different narrations.

00:15:32 --> 00:15:33

Among the best deeds

00:15:34 --> 00:15:36

to be done during these days is fasting.

00:15:38 --> 00:15:40

Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, as we know, chose

00:15:40 --> 00:15:41

fasting for himself

00:15:42 --> 00:15:44

and in the Hadith al Suqulsi, Allah Subhanahu

00:15:44 --> 00:15:46

wa Ta'ala said, which means Allah says

00:15:47 --> 00:15:49

all the deeds of the of Bani Adam

00:15:49 --> 00:15:52

of the son of Adam are for him

00:15:52 --> 00:15:53

except

00:15:53 --> 00:15:54

for fasting,

00:15:55 --> 00:15:57

which is for me and I am the

00:15:57 --> 00:15:59

one who will reward him for it.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:04

And this is in Bukhari.

00:16:05 --> 00:16:06

It is Sunnah

00:16:06 --> 00:16:07

to fast

00:16:07 --> 00:16:09

on the 9th day of Dhul Hijjah

00:16:11 --> 00:16:13

and the hadith of Rasool Allah

00:16:13 --> 00:16:15

He said that I hope from Allah that

00:16:15 --> 00:16:18

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala will forgive all minor

00:16:18 --> 00:16:21

sins for the year preceding that and the

00:16:21 --> 00:16:22

year following that.

00:16:22 --> 00:16:23

It is of course

00:16:24 --> 00:16:24

not

00:16:25 --> 00:16:28

expected for the Muslim to deliberately commit any

00:16:28 --> 00:16:31

sin. This refers to those things that happen

00:16:31 --> 00:16:34

by accident or without our intention.

00:16:35 --> 00:16:37

Rasulullah Salam himself used to fast all the

00:16:37 --> 00:16:38

9 days.

00:16:39 --> 00:16:42

From the 1st to 9th of the and

00:16:42 --> 00:16:43

the 10th of the is

00:16:44 --> 00:16:44

young rate.

00:16:45 --> 00:16:46

So it's a good thing to fast all

00:16:46 --> 00:16:48

the 9 days. If you have fasted

00:16:48 --> 00:16:50

good for you. If you have not fasted,

00:16:50 --> 00:16:52

start from tomorrow anyway.

00:16:53 --> 00:16:54

It is sunnah to say Takbir,

00:16:55 --> 00:16:56

Allahu Akbar,

00:17:02 --> 00:17:02

Subhanallah

00:17:03 --> 00:17:05

during the 1st 10 days of Dhul Hijjah

00:17:05 --> 00:17:07

and to say it aloud in every place

00:17:07 --> 00:17:09

where it is permitted

00:17:09 --> 00:17:11

to remember Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala as a

00:17:11 --> 00:17:12

proclamation

00:17:12 --> 00:17:14

of the greatness of Allah.

00:17:14 --> 00:17:18

Reviving the reviving aspects of the sunnah that

00:17:18 --> 00:17:19

have been virtually forgotten

00:17:20 --> 00:17:23

brings immense reward as Rasool Allah told

00:17:23 --> 00:17:24

us whoever

00:17:25 --> 00:17:27

revives an aspect of my sunnah that is

00:17:27 --> 00:17:29

forgotten after my death, he will have a

00:17:29 --> 00:17:32

reward equivalent to that of the people who

00:17:32 --> 00:17:33

follow him without

00:17:34 --> 00:17:37

it detracting in the least from their reward.

00:17:37 --> 00:17:38

And this is in Tirumidi.

00:17:39 --> 00:17:40

I remind myself and you

00:17:41 --> 00:17:44

to do more good deeds in these days.

00:17:44 --> 00:17:45

Do extra ones.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:48

Don't waste time in you useless arguments and

00:17:48 --> 00:17:50

debates about moon sighting or anything else.

00:17:51 --> 00:17:52

Keep hearts together

00:17:53 --> 00:17:54

and brotherhood intact.

00:17:55 --> 00:17:57

Keeping hearts together and brotherhood intact

00:17:57 --> 00:18:00

is far more important than winning arguments.

00:18:02 --> 00:18:04

Whoever is doing whatever they are doing, they

00:18:04 --> 00:18:05

are doing it with their.

00:18:07 --> 00:18:09

It is not your job and my job

00:18:09 --> 00:18:10

to sit in judgment on them and say

00:18:10 --> 00:18:11

you are right, you are wrong. You look

00:18:11 --> 00:18:12

after yourself

00:18:13 --> 00:18:13

and Allah

00:18:14 --> 00:18:15

will look after them.

00:18:16 --> 00:18:18

We who have not gone for Hajj

00:18:19 --> 00:18:21

should occupy ourselves by worshiping Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:18:21 --> 00:18:24

Ta'ala and make and doing extra,

00:18:24 --> 00:18:25

extra,

00:18:26 --> 00:18:27

more prayers after

00:18:28 --> 00:18:28

the Hajjot

00:18:29 --> 00:18:29

making,

00:18:30 --> 00:18:31

reading Quran,

00:18:31 --> 00:18:34

remembering Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, making dua, giving

00:18:34 --> 00:18:34

charity,

00:18:35 --> 00:18:37

honoring parents, upholding ties of kinship,

00:18:38 --> 00:18:40

and joining what is good and forbidding evil,

00:18:42 --> 00:18:45

and all other good deeds and acts of

00:18:45 --> 00:18:45

worship.

00:18:46 --> 00:18:48

One of the most important things to do

00:18:48 --> 00:18:50

during these 10 days is to repent,

00:18:51 --> 00:18:53

is to sincerely make a step forward and

00:18:53 --> 00:18:53

over

00:18:54 --> 00:18:56

and to give up all kinds of disobedience

00:18:57 --> 00:18:57

and sin.

00:18:58 --> 00:19:00

We know what we do better than anybody

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

else. So change that.

00:19:02 --> 00:19:04

Repentance means

00:19:04 --> 00:19:07

returning to obedience of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala

00:19:07 --> 00:19:10

away from whatever Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala

00:19:10 --> 00:19:11

dislikes

00:19:11 --> 00:19:12

with deep regret

00:19:13 --> 00:19:14

for what has passed,

00:19:14 --> 00:19:16

giving them up immediately

00:19:17 --> 00:19:18

and being determined

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

never to return to them but to adhere

00:19:20 --> 00:19:21

firmly

00:19:22 --> 00:19:24

to the truth by doing what Allah Subhanahu

00:19:24 --> 00:19:25

Wa Ta'ala loves.

00:19:26 --> 00:19:27

Let us purify our earnings

00:19:28 --> 00:19:29

and our food

00:19:29 --> 00:19:32

because we don't know when we will die.

00:19:33 --> 00:19:34

Fulfill the rights of others

00:19:34 --> 00:19:38

and return people's trust to them because Allah

00:19:38 --> 00:19:39

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:19:39 --> 00:19:41

will not forgive the person

00:19:41 --> 00:19:45

until the one he wronged forgives him first.

00:19:45 --> 00:19:46

So seek forgiveness

00:19:47 --> 00:19:48

before it is too late.

00:19:50 --> 00:19:51

Finally,

00:19:51 --> 00:19:52

the best

00:19:52 --> 00:19:54

deed to do on Eid ul Adha or

00:19:54 --> 00:19:55

Yamuna,

00:19:55 --> 00:19:58

the day of sacrifice is to sacrifice an

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

animal for the sake of Allah.

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

The sacrifice, the Uziya or the Korbani,

00:20:04 --> 00:20:06

his wajib on anyone who is liable to

00:20:06 --> 00:20:09

pay Zakat even if he became eligible for

00:20:09 --> 00:20:11

Zakat on that day.

00:20:11 --> 00:20:14

The blessing of that, the barakah is for

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

the whole family.

00:20:15 --> 00:20:18

The time for sacrifice is after the

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

and not before.

00:20:21 --> 00:20:23

Finally, on the day of Eid, which is

00:20:23 --> 00:20:24

the 10th of

00:20:25 --> 00:20:27

it is Mustahab to bathe and wear good

00:20:27 --> 00:20:29

or new clothes and go to the prayer

00:20:29 --> 00:20:30

of place of prayer,

00:20:31 --> 00:20:34

reciting takbir and to continue to do that

00:20:34 --> 00:20:37

until the imam comes to start the prayer.

00:20:38 --> 00:20:41

Please do not pray Tahiyatul Masjid when you

00:20:41 --> 00:20:42

come for each salah.

00:20:43 --> 00:20:45

The each salah has no iqamah

00:20:45 --> 00:20:47

and is followed by the Khutba of Eid,

00:20:47 --> 00:20:50

which is very important to listen to. So

00:20:50 --> 00:20:53

please don't get up and start talking and

00:20:53 --> 00:20:54

and walking away

00:20:54 --> 00:20:55

after the salah

00:20:55 --> 00:20:57

unless there is an emergency.

00:20:58 --> 00:21:00

Continue to remain seated and listen to the

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

and make dua

00:21:02 --> 00:21:05

and then get up and meet your meet

00:21:05 --> 00:21:07

and greet your brothers and sisters before you

00:21:07 --> 00:21:08

go home. May Allah

00:21:09 --> 00:21:12

grant us the to do what pleases him

00:21:12 --> 00:21:15

especially during these days. And to continue that

00:21:15 --> 00:21:17

during the rest of our lives.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:19

Let this time be a time of transformation.

00:21:20 --> 00:21:23

Not a time of episodic action which reverse

00:21:23 --> 00:21:24

to default when the time passes.

00:21:25 --> 00:21:25

May Allah

00:21:26 --> 00:21:27

ease the path of those who have gone

00:21:27 --> 00:21:30

for Hajj and honor them as his guests

00:21:30 --> 00:21:32

and make them our intercessors

00:21:32 --> 00:21:35

When they stand in Alafa and ask Allah

00:21:35 --> 00:21:37

subhanahu wa ta'ala for his mercy. May Allah

00:21:37 --> 00:21:39

subhanahu wa ta'ala cover them with his mercy

00:21:39 --> 00:21:42

and accept their duas and give more from

00:21:42 --> 00:21:45

his bounty. May they be counted among those

00:21:45 --> 00:21:46

about whom

00:21:47 --> 00:21:48

said in the Hadith Muhammad

00:21:51 --> 00:21:51

ah Muhammad the say had this

00:21:52 --> 00:21:52

reported

00:21:54 --> 00:21:55

that

00:21:56 --> 00:21:57

said verily Allah

00:21:58 --> 00:21:58

boasts

00:21:59 --> 00:22:00

to his

00:22:00 --> 00:22:02

angels of the pilgrims on the day

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

afternoon

00:22:04 --> 00:22:06

of the day of Arafah saying, look at

00:22:06 --> 00:22:07

my slaves

00:22:07 --> 00:22:09

coming to me disabled

00:22:10 --> 00:22:12

and dusty. In another hadith, Rasool Allah

00:22:12 --> 00:22:15

said that there is no day on which

00:22:15 --> 00:22:17

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala forgives more people than

00:22:17 --> 00:22:20

he forgives on the day of Arafat.

00:22:20 --> 00:22:21

Let us we ask Allah to make us

00:22:21 --> 00:22:24

among those who will be forgiven before that

00:22:24 --> 00:22:26

and on that and after that day.

00:22:27 --> 00:22:28

May

00:22:28 --> 00:22:30

Allah grant us the opportunity and the ability

00:22:31 --> 00:22:33

to make Hajj again and again. May those

00:22:33 --> 00:22:36

who have not done Hajj complete that far.

00:22:36 --> 00:22:39

Make sure that you complete the 5th which

00:22:39 --> 00:22:40

is Hajj.

00:22:40 --> 00:22:42

We make a lot of people I know

00:22:42 --> 00:22:42

make Umrah.

00:22:43 --> 00:22:45

Good for you. But Hajj is for. Umrah

00:22:45 --> 00:22:47

is nothing. So make sure that you do

00:22:47 --> 00:22:50

your Hajj as soon as you are,

00:22:50 --> 00:22:53

capable of doing it and do not die

00:22:54 --> 00:22:57

without having done Hajj even though you could

00:22:57 --> 00:22:58

have done it. Because

00:22:59 --> 00:23:00

said the one who dies

00:23:01 --> 00:23:02

without doing Hajj.

00:23:02 --> 00:23:04

Even when he could have done it will

00:23:04 --> 00:23:07

be resurrected with the Yahud and Nasara.

00:23:08 --> 00:23:09

So let us not fall into that trap.

00:23:10 --> 00:23:13

Sometimes people wait until they are old. No

00:23:13 --> 00:23:14

old. As soon as you are eligible,

00:23:15 --> 00:23:16

go and do Hajj. By the time you

00:23:16 --> 00:23:18

get old, do Hajj a 1000000 times. Who

00:23:18 --> 00:23:20

know? Allah if Allah gives you, do Hajj

00:23:20 --> 00:23:22

everyday. Every I mean, not every every every

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

year. But

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

make sure that the one Hajj which is

00:23:25 --> 00:23:26

for

00:23:27 --> 00:23:30

it's a it is for the on the

00:23:30 --> 00:23:30

individual.

00:23:31 --> 00:23:32

Make sure that we complete that.
