00:00:56 --> 00:01:08

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam performed Hajj the year he did the last year of his life sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed the Sahaba

00:01:09 --> 00:01:15

that the order of the month and the division of the

00:01:17 --> 00:01:18

of the year

00:01:21 --> 00:01:28

has been restored to its original setting, to the original

00:01:30 --> 00:01:34

state, if you will, that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.

00:01:36 --> 00:01:39

When Allah azza wa jal created the heavens and the earth, what does this mean?

00:01:41 --> 00:01:42

And I will relate to the Hadith.

00:01:43 --> 00:01:44

You see,

00:01:46 --> 00:01:50

in the pre Islamic era before Islam,

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


00:01:53 --> 00:01:57

shurkin cough was dominating the Arabian Peninsula, they used to

00:01:59 --> 00:02:06

play with the with the dates, and with with the months, because there had been

00:02:07 --> 00:02:11

more months are periods of the year that are considered to be sacred.

00:02:13 --> 00:02:21

Where fighting is prohibited wronging people or abusing others is prohibited, exploiting

00:02:23 --> 00:02:32

different tribes or those who are weaker than us. Right? All of that was prohibited. So much so that even the pagans

00:02:34 --> 00:02:47

of the Arabian Peninsula, used to respect and highly regard these months. So they would actually cease from fighting from any fighting or from attacking or from robbing one another.

00:02:49 --> 00:03:17

Even the worst of people during these months, they will actually stop robbing people. Imagine this is just because they know this has been the tradition and the ancient tradition from the time of the prophets before that. Right. So they like we can't use it. Yes, sending in wronging people is wrong anytime of the year, but during these months, in particular, it's, it's even worse.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:21

It's much more intense, so they wouldn't.

00:03:22 --> 00:03:33

But then they were faced with famines or desperate financial situation, I don't even call them desperate. But they would go through some difficulties. And then they feel like you know, but we need to attack or rob

00:03:35 --> 00:03:48

the other tribe, we need to seize this territory, we need to do this, but we can't do it. It's a sacred month, or we have three consecutive sacred months. That's too much, especially those Canada, which has just started, and then they'll hedge it.

00:03:49 --> 00:04:10

And then they come to Harlem. And it's like a third of it. Like we can't go 90 days without robbing someone, or without fighting, or we can see how evil how she upon, you know, was able to bring them to that level where they can't even do that. So they said they came up with this idea of let's see,

00:04:11 --> 00:04:15

why don't we agree to change the order of the month.

00:04:16 --> 00:04:23

So we take a break. So we actually post one haram until suffer, we push it back.

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

And then for 30 days, it's open season.

00:04:30 --> 00:04:32

You can do whatever you want. But I have the villa

00:04:33 --> 00:04:39

and show you upon as Allah subhanaw taala told us in the Quran, beautify this idea.

00:04:40 --> 00:04:51

This, this this change, which for all practical reasons. And this brings me to the to the first point that I wanted to make is be careful of Shavon

00:04:53 --> 00:04:55

Shavon has a long experience

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

and he's able to

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

To write obviously with,

00:05:03 --> 00:05:29

we have to be willing, he's able to make us see bad things as good and good things as bad. He's able to manipulate our perception. So, so much so that our perception becomes distorted. Right? Even something that is evil it may be seen by other people as something evil you somehow your perception you perceive it as good. Or okay or justified. I'm desperate.

00:05:30 --> 00:05:32

I'm desperate. What can I do?

00:05:33 --> 00:05:35

I have a lot of free time on my hand.

00:05:36 --> 00:05:40

What else do you want me to do? I'm bored. I'm there's all kinds of excuses.

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


00:05:43 --> 00:05:46

I don't have other resources. What can I do imagine?

00:05:47 --> 00:06:03

I mean to begin with Lauren wronging. People transgressing against other people, aggression against people exploiting the weak. These are evil things. They're immoral. They're bad. You don't even need a revelation to tell you that these things are bad. You know it.

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

You don't like anyone to hurt you.

00:06:08 --> 00:06:14

You don't like anyone to rob you. You don't like anyone to threaten your safety.

00:06:16 --> 00:06:20

No one none of us likes to be abused.

00:06:23 --> 00:06:33

Yet somehow we justify doing this to other people. And even in the sacred amongst that the pagans of the past used to

00:06:34 --> 00:06:35


00:06:36 --> 00:06:44

somehow they managed to manipulate the months and change things change the order around which threw off the whole thing.

00:06:45 --> 00:07:00

Right? So much so that it took some time for things to be restored back And subhanAllah the year the promises have performed Hajj, the last year of his life sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says says the following right?

00:07:02 --> 00:07:05

In his Amana, Cadiz Sedara que atty he

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

Yoma halacha sama YT it will out yo mahalo Allahu sama what you will have

00:07:11 --> 00:07:35

a center to is actually Russia Iran mean How about when to Lhasa to motor Well, yet they will carry their will hit Jomo haram. Where Raja boo Moodle Allah the Boehner Jumada Chabad. So I probably should have made this statement. He said that time with the will of Allah subhanaw taala came back to its original state.

00:07:36 --> 00:07:48

Right, it was reset, meaning they kept manipulating and changing things around and stuff like that. But eventually it came back to how it was. So the year the prophesized self performed hedge that was the hedger

00:07:50 --> 00:07:56

that was Muharram. Everything went back to its original state in the province Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, you can no longer do that.

00:07:58 --> 00:08:04

You can't we're not allowed to do that. And Allah Subhana Allah revealed a couple of verses.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala told us in the Quran.

00:08:12 --> 00:08:30

In the shahada in the law, his natural shahada and Vicky tabula yoga Holika similar to an oral mean her home that he could do you don't pay him for that only morphine in Fusa come Wakatsuki Anika for 10 km Iupati Lulu CONCACAF we're

00:08:31 --> 00:08:50

checking in to see how the lady can walk in a ce o 's Yeah, that won't feel cough. You will also be letting in a Cafaro your Halona who I am and where you have removed a Harmon that used to declare one year and then not the next year, just you know for economical reasons.

00:08:51 --> 00:08:53

They're in for practical reasons. Well, I had to build

00:08:55 --> 00:09:12

the wildly worried that Emma haram Allah for you he looma Haram Allah Xueyan Allah whom su Amelie him. Allah Subhana Allah says that it was beautified somehow they found it to be justified. They found this policy to be okay and accepted.

00:09:13 --> 00:09:17

And this is what happens when human beings are left to their own.

00:09:19 --> 00:09:44

Walla Walla Hadeel como cafe. So Allah subhanho wa Taala declared this practice to be outlawed. It's no longer you know, allowed, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made it very clear. So what does the verse say? Allah Subhana Allah says, Indeed, the number of months ordained by Allah is 12. In Allah has record.

00:09:45 --> 00:09:50

When Allah Subhan Allah, when Allah Subhana Allah to Allah since the day he created the heavens and the earth,

00:09:52 --> 00:10:00

Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted the calendar or the year the the lunar year to be

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

divided into 12 months.

00:10:03 --> 00:10:07

Are you listening? The lunar year is divided into 12 months, not 13 not 1112 months.

00:10:09 --> 00:10:23

And it is Allah subhanaw taala. Right, who declared some of these months that Allah subhanaw taala says four of these months are held on their sacred, their sacred.

00:10:24 --> 00:10:37

See the whole year is special every year is a special however, for months are of a special status during which you need to be extra careful, you need to be careful throughout the whole year. But during these months, you need to be extra careful.

00:10:38 --> 00:11:06

You need to be extra careful, be careful. There are four months that are sacred. The Prophet Sal have clarified them in the Hadith that I mentioned to you. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said these months are Qaeda which has started few days ago, this month, the 11th lunar month, don't hedge during which hedge right takes place, the actual rituals the main but hedge can start from Sure well, and then maharam

00:11:07 --> 00:11:16

the first lunar month in the Hijri calendar. And then the prophesied said and said to Elijah boo Moodle and Rajab, which is the seventh month.

00:11:21 --> 00:11:50

Allah the Boehner Shaban or your mother, which falls between Jumada which is a six month and Shaban right before Ramadan. So these are the four sacred months and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, not to manipulate them, and to be careful during this month. So what does this mean? So what are we obligated to do? First of all acknowledge these months and have in our hearts respect for what Allah azza wa jal declared to be extra sacred and extra special.

00:11:53 --> 00:12:37

Just like Juma for instance, is extra special and sacred ALLAH SubhanA. Allah chooses whatever he wants to have done. So Allah azza wa jal designated this day to be a day of celebration and a sacred day and different events by the Grace of Allah subhanaw taala took place like Adam alayhis salaam being admitted to Jana, Adam leaving Jana Ali Salah Adam being created on Friday with hee hee takamasa and the Day of Judgment begins on a Friday. So, this is how Allah Subhana Allah chose this day genre to be a special day. So we have to behave accordingly. We have to realize that a special make it special internally, mentally, emotionally make it a special likewise, there are certain

00:12:37 --> 00:12:40

parts of the year that we have to make special.

00:12:42 --> 00:12:50

Of these of this particular periods are credited and heard and Rajab as well our special so what do we do?

00:12:51 --> 00:13:31

Are we supposed to basically light up candles and you know, make a special meals and what are we expected to do? Well, the idea is very clear. The ISs fella totally movie in Fusa calm do not wrong yourselves during these months. Be careful. Just because it's summer time and you're on vacation and you know you don't know what to do. You can't just go do whatever you want. Remember sending is haram any time of the year but during these sacred months is is even worse. Even our best Rahima hula little the Allahu Anhu said

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


00:13:34 --> 00:13:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:37 --> 00:13:38


00:13:41 --> 00:13:49

if this Allahu Allah assured Allah subhanaw taala has designated for months. Yeah, Allah wouldn't hurt Alma well rahmati hin

00:13:50 --> 00:13:54

right so now it's extra sacred.

00:13:55 --> 00:14:01

So he said what's your other than Buffy Hiner or fee of one and a sin is much more

00:14:04 --> 00:14:13

it's it's worse during these months you know there's like it's aggravated it's or it's elevated to a different level.

00:14:15 --> 00:14:21

Right. So lying anytime of theirs when I'm lying during these months becomes even worse.

00:14:22 --> 00:14:28

Because you know Allah subhanaw taala declare this period of time for us to be at our best and not wrong ourselves.

00:14:30 --> 00:14:34

wronging someone is haram. You know fighting is haram.

00:14:35 --> 00:14:44

Right? unjustified fighting is haram unless you're defending yourself. During these months, it becomes worse it's even more

00:14:45 --> 00:14:57

more haram, if you will. So be careful. That's what it means. And there are different things that the Quran told us we do in which we wrong ourselves. One is when we

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


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

associate partners with Allah subhanaw taala. This is obvious. We wrong ourselves in the shortcut Illuminati. When we call upon anyone other than Allah, when we invest what we are supposed to invest with Allah, we invested with, with anyone else who were into anything else. We're longing ourselves, we're actually failing ourselves. Because that's, that's wasted. When you do a deed for other than Allah Subhana Allah, when Allah is the only one that can reward you, you're actually wrong in yourself. It's like going in investing in the wrong in the wrong venture. Right? You know, it's failing. You go you put your money there, you're wrong and yourself. You have no one to blame except

00:15:36 --> 00:16:09

yourself. Right? So in the shortcut of Win Win outcome number two, to cross the boundaries of Allah subhana wa Tada Allah azza wa jal set limits to cross these boundaries. were wronging ourselves, we're not running it Allah azza wa jal and that is why it was said that whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger is truly guided and they're there. They're on the right, you're good. And whoever disobey is listened to this one. Whoever disobeyed Allah and His Messenger does not harm Allah azza wa jal they in the Hula, hula Sharia,

00:16:10 --> 00:16:20

right? Our sins don't harm Allah. When we do something, they offend Allah azza wa jal, and sometimes Allah subhanaw taala is offended on our behalf. Like why would you do that to yourself?

00:16:22 --> 00:16:44

And this is our loving Creator subhanho wa taala. He loves us. It's like, imagine you as a parent, you see your child doing something that is self destructive, and you tell the child Don't do that it's hurt. You know, I'm offended on your behalf. You know, you disrespected me is one thing, you know, to do this, but what you're doing is self harming. It's self destructive. Why would you do that?

00:16:46 --> 00:16:52

It becomes even, you know, much more offensive. Why would he do that? You know, better you should have known better.

00:16:53 --> 00:16:55

We always say that right? Should have known better.

00:16:57 --> 00:17:06

So don't do anything. So Allah subhanaw taala says, Do not cross my boundaries and my limits because you're wronging yourselves. For cause wala mannessah

00:17:08 --> 00:17:12

Sokka wala Manasa Whoever crosses these boundaries have wronged himself.

00:17:13 --> 00:17:18

And we're the only that I can think of please help me out if there is any, if you've heard of any creature,

00:17:20 --> 00:17:24

right, other than human beings there, maybe they maybe I'm not, that.

00:17:25 --> 00:17:34

If you heard of any creature creature or any of Allah who has creation that is as self destructive as we are. It's only us and the devils or demons.

00:17:35 --> 00:17:45

Right and gins who would knowingly do something to hurt ourselves something that are self destructive. So Allah says, do not do that.

00:17:46 --> 00:18:00

Do not self harm, emotionally, physically. And otherwise, during these months, I ask Allah azza wa jal to make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to according to the code. What's Up for Allah Allah confessor we have Philomena who wala Ferrara?

00:18:22 --> 00:19:00

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Abadi living in a stuffer. Well, that, just to give you an analogy, just to explain this, because sometimes some people say, well, what's the difference? You know, it feels the same to me. Same length of the day. It's like, what's the difference between this month? And because especially when we don't keep track of these months? We're because we're supposed to do that, by the way. You know, for those of us who wonder, right? Even our ages and our risk and our agile, all of that is written according to that to the lunar month. And I know some people they're like, No, man, you're making me two years older than I am. Well,

00:19:02 --> 00:19:03

that's what it is.

00:19:04 --> 00:19:18

Our, our, our risk and our culture. And all of that is according to the lunar calendar with Allah Subhan Allah because Allah says in the data show who they are in law. So very often we come in when a person says I'm 60 When they're, in fact 62.

00:19:20 --> 00:19:27

Right. And that's why just, you know, just FYI. Right? But besides that,

00:19:29 --> 00:19:45

it is important that we keep track of these months. Because that's, that's what it is. I know that that's not the calendar we're using. And some people might say, well, it's not practical, but we have to. There are very important events in the year that are actually connected to that calendar.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:59

By the way, just just just as Wallahi as a brotherly advice, and I'm guilty of it myself, meaning I'm guilty of being too attached. If you cannot let go of your devices

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

During the hotbar, if you cannot stop scrolling during the hotbar, you've got a problem.

00:20:06 --> 00:20:13

Are you listening to me? If you can't listen to me right now, because you're too busy scrolling during the hotbar, you've got a problem.

00:20:15 --> 00:20:39

I'm working on it myself. So my advice is we do we do something about this, because they got us hooked. They got us hooked so bad, so bad, that we're not paying attention to special events. In our lives on occasions, we're missing out special, very important conversations with our family members. We're not paying attention, because we're too busy scrolling up and down.

00:20:40 --> 00:20:46

Right, we're missing out on a lot of things. We were wasting precious time because we're too busy scrolling up and down.

00:20:47 --> 00:20:52

And then at the end of the of the of the day, or at the end of the day, we feel like what have I done,

00:20:53 --> 00:20:55

two three hours passed away.

00:20:56 --> 00:20:59

If it takes you deleting some apps do it, it's worth it.

00:21:02 --> 00:21:06

In the month of Ramadan, I experimented and it was worth it. It was liberating.

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

And I'm so close to just just canceling Wi Fi at home for two months now. And then just just you know, come to NYC here and can't go around meet people talk to people spend time with each other and pay attention make eye contacts.

00:21:24 --> 00:21:32

Pay attention to everything else around you because we're too busy looking at smaller screen and it's killing us emotionally skilling mentally

00:21:33 --> 00:21:37

it's killing us. It is so pay attention

00:21:39 --> 00:22:14

to more minutes and I lost my you know what I was saying? My point my dear brothers and sisters is Allah subhanho wa Taala loves us. And Allah azza wa jal wants what is best of us. And these, these periods in which we need to be extra careful, are meant to train us, just like the month of Ramadan. And that is why it's very important to keep track of this calendar. Because there are very important events during the year that are tied to this calendar Hajj for instance. Right, the sacred months, Ramadan, Shabbat

00:22:16 --> 00:22:48

all of these are connected to this and especially events that happened in our history. But Ramadan, we have to track Ramadan. These are gifts from Allah subhanho wa Taala for us to pay attention because if every day is the same, and every month is the same, and every day of the week is the same. We're going to lose ourselves. We're going to forget our mission. We're going to be so distracted. Next thing you know, what will happen to us is what is said in some reports, and that's when he M people are asleep for that matter and teboho and when they die, they wake up.

00:22:52 --> 00:23:09

If that doesn't happen, that's why there's day night. That's why there is end of week that's why we have all of this to make us pay attention and say oh my god, I can't believe it's already Friday to wake us up before it's too late. Before the Angel of Death comes knocking on our doors. May Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

figuratively speaking by the way because the Angel of Death doesn't, you know, may Allah subhanaw taala prepares for that day. May Allah subhanaw taala make that the that day the best of our days Allahumma in Lucca until you either hire or Melina Akira
