Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakato. My brothers and sisters, the days of shriek, the days that follow the day of eat those three days or days of eating, drinking and thanking Allah remembering Allah Almighty, we've said that, but what we need to know Don't be wasteful. Number one, number two is reach out to your friends and relatives, and reach out to the poor as well. you distribute your sacrificial animal into three portions, a portion you partake from a portion you give your family and friends and a portion for the poor. If you'd like to change that slightly, make sure the portion given to the poor is not made smaller, the rest of them you can you can make your
portion smaller and so on, but not that for the poor people. Because we're supposed to be remembering the poor, the idea is not to eat so much that you get sick. But the idea is to eat enough to be thankful to Allah and to eat something different sometimes to be able to eat halal and appreciate what Allah has blessed you with. May Allah grant us all from his virtue and goodness. Now, what we need to understand is fasting is prohibited on the day of eat. And the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him has told us that even on the days of the Shrek, which are the three days that follow, we should be eating and drinking and praising Allah. So praise Allah. And I have mentioned
how, after every prayer we say, Allah is the Greatest Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest there is none worthy of worship besides Allah. Allah is the Greatest, and indeed, unto Him belongs all praise. That's what we say. May Allah grant us from his goodness, my brothers and sisters, these were the days the 10 days of the ledger that we spoke about. And I mentioned quite a few points regarding these 10 days of the hedger May Allah Almighty bless us all with goodness. There are a few differences among the scholars regarding some of the matters. When you hear something slightly different. Let's not make it a means of hatred and a means of name calling, but rather, we learn and
we follow what we believe is the most correct according to the scholars we've learned from and according to what we believe is taken from the authentic sources of Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all from among those who take heed. Let me explain after the month of the hedger we will enter Mohan Mohan is also one of the prohibited months. I remember in the first of these episodes, I said, there are four haraam months. For those of you who don't know what those four haram months are, they are
little Qaeda, vil, hedger, Muharram, and Roger. So three of them are in a row, the 11th month, the 12 month and the first month of the calendar, and then our job. Now, those are the haraam months, and I've explained that in the first episode. But what I want to say now is, once we've done with the ledger,
and we've completed the year, we will enter Mohan Mohan also has in it, a beautiful day known as our shoe raw, we are going to get to that day. I want to touch on it simply to make mention of the greatest
reason why it has been declared as a great day.
It has been declared a great day because according to the narrations, Musa alayhis salam, the Prophet Moses and Bernal israa, in his people were saved from the pharaoh who drowned on that day. So it was more of a triumph of good against evil. That is the 10th of Muharram. On that day, we're taught to fast the day with a day before it or a day after it. So you have a choice of fasting, the ninth and the 10th, or the 10th and 11th. That's off Muharram it's still quite far away, but it's good to start making a mental preparation of it and learn about it. So that is the main
significance of that particular day, at the time of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he taught that to us, and he told that to us. And similarly, we must make sure we understand that in the books of history later on. on that particular day. There was a disaster that occurred that we also speak about and we're very saddened by where the martyrdom of under saved him now earlier the Allahu anhu took place also on the same day, but like we say we're very sad and we need to learn lessons from what happened there. May Allah
Subhan Allah to Allah protect us all, so that we don't repeat the infighting among the Muslims. And we actually spread love and good understanding and tolerance within one another. May Allah bless every one of us. And I thank you for joining me for this beautiful short series. I hope we've learned a thing or two, and that we've spread it to others as well. Until we meet again, Apolo kolyada was Allahu wa sallam obata Cal anabaena Mohammed Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
