Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala sherfield Ambia will mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam to slim and cathedral because he found out about the Mighty Brothers and Sisters Welcome once again to our annual

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

argument about when to celebrate Eid.

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

Why should we have this argument? I have no idea. But let me try to put things in perspective for you.

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

Number one, I am Muslim.

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

I bear witness that there is no unworthy of worship except Allah. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam is the messenger of Allah and the Last and Final of them, after whom there is no other I shall do Allah ilaha illAllah wa shawanna Mohammad Rasool Allah, what does that mean? It means that in for me, the word of Allah, and the word of Rasulillah Salam takes precedence over anyone and anything else,

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

without any reservations without any boundaries. Now, on the subject among citing Rasulullah, Salah Salem Hadees, which is in Muslim Sharif, it's a site that is Narrated by Abu Huraira Delano who said, that Rasul Allah as an asylum said, See the SAT the bone of Ramadan, the new moon of Ramadan and start fasting and see the new moon of Chawan. And of fasting, and if the sky is cloudy for you, then complete 30 days of Ramadan.

00:01:34--> 00:02:17

For me, these words of the Hadees are absolutely crystal clear, there is no doubt in them whatsoever. Therefore, for me, I take it that there is no need for me to go beyond this, to listen to anybody, any fatwa, any individual, any share any move the any motion, to listen to any group of scholars to listen to any fatwa or to listen to anybody whatsoever. When I have the words of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam to listen to, I brought Iman on Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not on anybody else. And therefore, when Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said something, anyone and everyone else for me, has no value zero,

00:02:18--> 00:02:38

I will follow Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam only, and Allah is my witness. And therefore, we see the moon, we saw the moon and we started fasting, we will see the moon and will interesting. Now, seeing does not mean that I have to see it personally. At least it must be seen in my country of residence.

00:02:39--> 00:02:50

So I live nowadays in the United States of America, therefore the moon should be cited in the US. If the moon is cited any other country or hamdulillah good for them, let them follow their own site.

00:02:52--> 00:02:58

If someone wants a logical explanation, very simple logical explanation is when do I pray Serato Marguerite,

00:02:59--> 00:03:15

I will praise Allah for Maghrib when the time of Buneary comes in America, I don't pray Serato memory when it is time for mongering in the Haram in Makkah, I don't pray Serato mongering when it is the time when it is the time for Muslim in Jeremiah Jamia Masjid in Delhi,

00:03:16--> 00:03:22

I pray for my daily prayers, I take the daily time

00:03:23--> 00:03:26

that we did if you want to use the word citing citing of those

00:03:28--> 00:04:08

for the months, sighting of the sun in my country, in my place. Similarly, therefore, for the months, I take the siting of the moon in my country, my place and this is the order versus resolution. So please stay away from arguments stay away from all needless and pointless discussions when the Hadees also realism is absolutely clear. Now, usual two arguments number one, modern times we are embracing modernity, please you're not embracing modernity, if you're using calculations, because calculations have been around for 4000 years in the Hindu lunar calendar. There's nothing modern about that. It is the most ancient of

00:04:09--> 00:04:46

pieces of knowledge and the Arabs were well aware of that. So if somebody says to you that Rosaura seller seller may have said this because he did not know about the calendar. Sorry, that's not true. First of all the Rasul Allah is haram. What he's saying is what Allah subhanaw taala ordered him to say, well, Mayan if ONeill Hawa in Hua Hua, you you have, he does not say anything of his own. He says only what we have revealed to him Allah subhanaw taala said in order to know them, and especially in matters of Ibadah fasting is about the opening the fastest rather, it is about therefore what the NABI SallAllahu sallam said is what he mean Allah He died

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

so it's not a question I'm not doing calculations. This is what we follow calculations are there they have always been there they're there today. We do not follow them. With regard to moon sighting we cite the moon before

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

little recap we follow or the sighting, not the calculation, because this is what our Prophet Muhammad Salah said I'm told us second argument that is trotted out usually is it is more convenient. I completely agree with you it would be extremely convenient. If somebody says that the 20th of October is April 5, it will be even more convenient because that is my birthday. I don't need I don't even need to remember that. Right?

00:05:24--> 00:05:30

Just like the Christian says 25th of December is the birthday of Israel SLM. The fact that he was born in July doesn't matter.

00:05:33--> 00:05:52

Please understand this. This Deen of Islam is a deal where in every single act of worship our half of ours, we are expressing love for Allah subhanaw taala. The sign of expressing love is that the person who is expressing his love does that which is not convenient.

00:05:54--> 00:06:10

He does more, not less. He does more for his beloved. Our beloved is ALLAH SubhanA Hotel. Our beloved is Mohammad Rasool Allah salAllahu Alaihe Salam, we do more every single Ibadah in this religion of ours, believe me is inconvenient.

00:06:11--> 00:06:15

wudu is inconvenient five times a day. Walsall is inconvenient.

00:06:17--> 00:06:17


00:06:18--> 00:06:28

I would like to base that I feel like Billy but if I need to have more goes on. I must make closer because otherwise my Eva Eva is not accepted. My worship is not accepted

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

Salah five times a day is very inconvenient.

00:06:35--> 00:06:39

Can you find me somebody who says it's very it's very convenient, not it's very inconvenient.

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

to Hajj is even more inconvenient, but even more beneficial.

00:06:47--> 00:06:56

Fasting, the whole of Ramadan, very inconvenient, eating at odd hours not eating for 12 hours, 14 hours in the day highly inconvenient.

00:06:59--> 00:06:59


00:07:01--> 00:07:12

Hench the most inconvenient, wearing to watch these pieces of cloth and doing all the other candidates not a single thing in that it's convenient. But we do that because we love Allah

00:07:13--> 00:07:54

so far. So having the aid specified one year in advance on a particular day and time would be very convenient. But that is not this theme that is not this religion. So forget about the arguments of convenience. We are a people who love Allah and therefore we do that which is inconvenient because our messenger our Mohammed, our soul, our Imam, our leader, and the one we follow, told us to do. So let us follow us as a seller, we will see the moon local sighting in whichever country we are and we will follow that for it. And if somebody else wants to do whatever they want, that's up to them. People do all kinds of stuff. That's not our responsibility. We will not follow them. We will not go

00:07:54--> 00:08:05

with that we will go with water so the last lesson I'm told us because when we stand before Allah subhanaw taala tomorrow, the only name which will have value is Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, nobody else's name.

00:08:06--> 00:08:11

So let us follow that was Allah Allah Allah will carry while Allah He was it has been built with the guard Huawei
