00:01:23--> 00:01:41

more than he blessed others. The day of Juma is the best day of the week as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in the heading higher Yeoman politicians, the best day that the sun rises in his Joomla

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

the month of Ramadan

00:01:44--> 00:01:49

is with no doubt the best of the months.

00:01:51--> 00:01:58

And in the month of Ramadan, you have a night that is better than any other night in fact better than 1000

00:01:59--> 00:02:01

year or or months.

00:02:03--> 00:02:09

And in the month of Ramadan, you have 10 nights that are the most blessed nights of the year.

00:02:11--> 00:02:12

Then,

00:02:13--> 00:02:20

Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teach us about a very special season that is approaching

00:02:21--> 00:02:27

next Friday, the first 10 days of the month of the hedger will begin.

00:02:31--> 00:02:53

There is a loss of Hannah who what Allah mentioned in Surah Al fudger, Allah azza wa jal in an oath says, well, February well I am in rush. And the scholars say that these days or these 10 days or loss of Hannah, what Allah refers to are the first 10 days of the month of the hijab.

00:02:54--> 00:03:02

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that there are the best days in this life

00:03:03--> 00:03:09

of me dunia as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned

00:03:10--> 00:03:27

and then these seasons, were a loss of Hannah, who Allah has blessed and he specifically mentioned that they are more virtuous, and that they are superior than other seasons. we're expected to do our best.

00:03:29--> 00:03:59

It is for those of us who are lagging, those of us who are who have slowed down to the due to their sins or their preoccupation with this life. It's an opportunity for them to catch up. And for those of us who are doing better than the rest to do even better and be the best of it to a loss of Hannah, who what Terada Mammon am in a nominal salehoo fee hin, Habu Illa Allah and had to rush

00:04:00--> 00:04:10

but there are no days in the entire year. Were doing good deeds is dear to a loss of Hannah Houma, tada, and more beloved than these 10 days.

00:04:12--> 00:04:32

However, brothers and sisters, many people don't pay attention to the great significance of these days. So today, I wanted to remind myself and everyone of not only the importance of these days, but to focus during these days and do something exceptional.

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he talks about an mlo, solid, righteous deed and we know that order to Allah, it has to be done for the sake of Allah for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala, not anything else. And number two, that deed has to conform to the prophetic tradition. It can be something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not teach or sanction.

00:05:01--> 00:05:46

Number three brothers and sisters, that deed must be something that we can maintain something that we, so what should we begin with? You know, someone might say, Okay, great, I'm ready. And sha Allah to Allah for this blood season. What should I do? Most of us start thinking about voluntary deeds, which is highly recommended. Most of us think that okay, I should start reading more for Anisha Allahu taala. I should fast these days, I should give charity during these days. Do kiama Lane, do different things. But however we forget that the first thing that we should begin with

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

the most important obligation

00:05:51--> 00:06:23

is to repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala as Allah azza wa jal invited us to eat Allahu Jami and a un momento as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you know, to eat a little better, no Soha repent, turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala stop committing sins to begin with. This is a sacred season anyways, the month of al Qaeda, that we are we are in the last few days of the month of the Qaeda is a sacred month.

00:06:25--> 00:07:13

And if anything, out of respect for the sacred months and days, we should not commit any sense or offend a loss of Hannah who to Allah. So the first obligation the most important element that we should begin with is repenting to Allah subhana wa Tada. turned back to Allah subhanho wa Taala in humility and repentance. And now some of us might be struggling with their sins or with with some bad habits. And they may say, Well, I'm not ready to repent, I have this addiction. I have this problem that I'm trying to get over, perhaps you can turn to a loss of habitat and ask Allah so just to ease repentance for you. Ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to facilitate other means and other

00:07:13--> 00:07:18

options for you so that you're not living a sinful life. You're not earning

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

something that offends Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:26--> 00:07:30

So ask Allah subhana wa to Allah for repentance turn to Allah azza wa jal

00:07:33--> 00:07:39

taught Adam, to turn to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and beg and ask for forgiveness.

00:07:41--> 00:07:47

In the novena for Santa, I have wronged myself, we have wronged ourselves.

00:07:49--> 00:07:55

And if you do not forgive us, if you do not allow us to repent and accept our repentance,

00:07:57--> 00:07:59

we will be amongst the losers.

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

So turn to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah repentance and ask Allah for forgiveness.

00:08:06--> 00:08:10

And be certain that Alonzo JAL accepts repentance.

00:08:11--> 00:08:25

Allah azza wa jal has invited us to repent, and to ask him and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Hadith mentions in the lahab Sofia who have been lately the tuba mercy on how Allah azza wa jal extended his hand

00:08:26--> 00:08:32

so that the sinner at night so that the sinner of the daytime would ask Allah for repentance and be forgiven.

00:08:34--> 00:08:42

Webster Toyota who really a tuba, mercy, and Allah Subhana Allah stretches his hand extends his hand

00:08:43--> 00:09:23

in the morning so that the sinner is of the night with repent and come back to a loss of Hannah with that, and Allah azza wa jal wants to forgive us. Yeah, they're all commonly so here I like him, he is inviting us so that he would forgive you. So the first thing brothers and sisters that we should begin with, is repent to a loss of Hanna with that, and we shouldn't wait until next Friday until the first day of the month. We shouldn't wait until we start our hedge journey for those who are performing Hushmail loss of habitat it is an accept their journey. We should begin now we should begin today with the light on. Number two brothers and sisters.

00:09:24--> 00:09:27

The most important good deed

00:09:29--> 00:09:58

that one can perform is whatever Allah azza wa jal obligated us to do. As the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in the Hadith before the voluntary extra deeds. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions in the head is momento para la. de ba in LA moved up to LA that there is nothing that my servant does. That brings him closer to me. That is more dear to me than what I have obligated him to do.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

The first

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

Good Deed that you should begin with are the follow up to fulfill the obligations, that obligatory things, to pray Our daily prayers

00:10:11--> 00:10:12

on time

00:10:15--> 00:10:20

to fulfill our duties towards our family members as we should

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

to keep ties with our kinship

00:10:27--> 00:10:31

to pay off, whatever we have to pay off

00:10:34--> 00:10:57

to give the care if we haven't done our Zakat, all of our obligations to fulfill them and start now, today, inshallah tada for those who may have some grudge against someone that is keeping them from fulfilling the rights, that a believer owes another believer

00:10:59--> 00:11:01

today, try to reconcile

00:11:03--> 00:11:08

and let go of whatever you're holding or you're harboring in your heart

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

so that your, your your deeds are not suspended.

00:11:16--> 00:11:19

Number three brothers and sisters, we can

00:11:21--> 00:11:24

begin as early as next Friday.

00:11:25--> 00:11:40

with what Allah subhanho wa Taala invited us to do in these blessed days, one of the greatest deeds, one of the most beloved deeds so Allah subhanho wa Taala is the remembrance of Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:11:41--> 00:12:32

and we are taught by the companions of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam as Allah azza wa jal mentioned in the Quran, we have Corolla, we have Crossman life he ama Malou, Matt, and the scholars of Tafseer said that these days are the 10 days of the ledger, well known, counted or known days. These are the 10 days of the hedger and a loss of Hannah's advices to mention him. And remember, remember him subhana wa Tada. And thus, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would begin their tech be right, they would not wait until the day of read, they would begin their tech spirits from the first day of the hedger during tech rewrite randomly, you don't have to wait

00:12:32--> 00:12:43

until after prayers, the tech rewrite that we do after the prayers begin the morning of the day of out of, or in some opinions The morning of the day of eight.

00:12:46--> 00:13:03

So remember, Allah subhanho wa Taala make it make these days, the days of remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And brothers and sisters, one of the greatest challenges that we have is that we have a lot of distractions. As a matter of fact,

00:13:04--> 00:13:24

we have tools that we keep with us that distract us and perhaps one resolution that you may want to consider that I'm recommending to myself and everyone is to cut down on social media during these days because it can waste your time and distract you from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:26--> 00:13:39

without knowing without realizing, we waste hours following trends on social media. So perhaps from the from the evening of Friday,

00:13:40--> 00:13:45

sorry, from the evening of Thursday, next Thursday, you might want to

00:13:47--> 00:14:20

do whatever it takes. Mute, silent. Get rid of any app that distracts you and focus on the remembrance of Allah subhana wa Tada. Focus on reading or focus on asking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for forgiveness, focus on remembering the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in your applications and sending your Salutations to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, make these days special days. Once they're gone, they're not going to come back again.

00:14:22--> 00:14:23

Then

00:14:24--> 00:14:31

the scholars also recommend fasting during these days, you can fast as many days as you can, the most important day to be

00:14:32--> 00:14:59

to be remembered. And fasting is the day of alpha. and we will talk about that and short long term tonight for those who intend to sacrifice and do their, their oath here in sha Allah. Remember that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a person that intends to do that should not cut or trim or remove any bodily hair.

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

Or trim or clip their nails once these 10 days begin

00:15:06--> 00:15:39

my dear brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, again in the Hadith, collected by Imam Bukhari when he declared that these days are the most beloved days to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that doing righteous deeds is most beloved to Allah azza wa jal, the companion is asked when a Jihad a feasibility Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said when Jihad visibile illa Illa June hora jbfc family through mela marriage I mean daddy can be shaped when they ask

00:15:41--> 00:15:49

what about someone who struggles, feasibility, like I said, not even that is better to be done.

00:15:51--> 00:16:34

When it comes when you compare it to good deeds that are performed during these 10 days, unless it is someone that took everything that he owns everything and devoted it to a loss of Hannah with Anna and did not come back with anything meaning someone that sacrificed everything, his life and his wealth. In other words, brothers and sisters, the only thing that comes close to doing good deeds during these days is giving up everything that you have. So give it your best and do your best and ask Allah Subhana Allah for acceptance I asked Allah to make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to Apollo ahead of myself, Irrawaddy, welcome. First of all, we

00:16:34--> 00:16:36

are in the hula hula Rahim.

00:16:57--> 00:17:01

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. Hamden. Catherine

00:17:02--> 00:17:18

de la Salatu was salam, O Allah Rasool Allah, Allah Allah He will be here. My dear brothers and sisters, I must say that when we think of good deeds, we very often also focus please move forward and fill in the gaps about a Columbia.

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

Make sure that you leave no gaps.

00:17:28--> 00:17:48

When we think of good deeds, brothers, that good deeds do not mean only they don't only mean reading or an or doing in a waffle praying your voluntary prayers. But we should also remember that the best of deeds are those where you can benefit someone else.

00:17:49--> 00:18:38

see many things that are between us and a loss of Hanna with dad. And we neglect a great source of blessing. Something that can contribute in changing the life of an individual, helping others reaching out to others, reaching to those who need our help. When we give giving in a manner that will make a difference in someone's life, volunteering our time and our effort, helping one another the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam puts emphasis in that as a matter of fact, some of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam considered helping other people fulfill their needs to be more rewarding than doing etiquette in the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:18:38--> 00:18:53

sallam. So think of these things. How can I make a difference in someone's life? How can I reach out and begin with those who are the closest to you, your loved ones, your family members. And last but not least brothers and sisters.

00:18:54--> 00:19:16

There is nothing that is more rewarding. According to many of our scholars when it comes to good deeds, than showing respect, and love and admiration, and being devoted to one's parents, especially mothers, one of the scholars was reported to have said, I don't know of any good deed

00:19:17--> 00:19:26

after believing in Allah subhanho wa Taala that is more rewarding than Bill walidah. So keep this in mind.

00:19:28--> 00:19:50

You don't want to be neglecting your parents or disrespecting your parents. We need to go out of our ways, be an ally to Allah to reach out to our parents, and to devote ourselves to them and show them the respect that they deserve. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them, and May Allah Subhana Allah preserve them.

00:19:51--> 00:19:55
