Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh my brothers and sisters, may the peace and blessings of Allah Almighty be upon you all. I'm so delighted to be joining you today this beautiful day of Arafah which has a great, great value in the eyes of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and he has asked us also to uphold that value and to understand it make use of what Allah has bestowed upon us. So, I commence this beautiful reminder for myself and yourselves by saying Bismillah in the Name of Allah, while hamdulillah and all praise is definitely due to Allah. Wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah my blessings and salutations of the Almighty be upon the messenger, Muhammad peace be upon him, what

00:00:55 --> 00:01:37

Allah Allah He was happy he and his family, his household, his companions, all of them, may Allah bless them. bless every one of you. bless every one of us, those who are so fortunate to be fulfilling the Hajj. We all know that in this year, there is a uniqueness to the Hajj in that very few people have been selected randomly to fulfill the Hajj. They are the fortunate ones may Allah accept from them, their worship, may Allah accept from them, everything that they're going to be doing, forgive their shortcomings, and grant us all a benefit from the DUA that they will be making, as well as every one of us. But today, I'd like to speak to you about the virtues of this beautiful

00:01:37 --> 00:01:42

day of Arafah. I want to simplify, but I also want to bring in a little bit of history.

00:01:44 --> 00:02:36

It's important for us to understand that when Allah created the earth, He did not make all the places equal in terms of spiritual value. But what he did is, he made some places more virtuous than others in your town in your city. The most virtuous of places are the houses of Allah, the places where people put their heads down on the ground, in frustration for he who made them. That's a very valuable place, Al masajid. When messaggi then he he Villa de Roma, Allah He had, indeed those places of worship belong to Allah. So don't call out to anyone besides Allah in worship, or in supplication, that's Allah and Surah to Jin, telling us that not only does he love the the houses

00:02:36 --> 00:03:23

known as the masjid, or the masajid of Allah, but he loves the places of prostration. So even the place where you've put your head on the ground five times a day, that place will bear witness for you on the Day of Judgment to say yes, I bear witness this person, put his head on the ground on me, and I am a witness and this is why one of the narration speaks about how important it is to put your head on the ground to take your time there in sujood, that place of Earth is going to bear witness for you by the will and mercy of Allah subhanho wa taala. So, we do know that all the places are not equal. Well, MK is very, very valuable also in the eyes of Allah. So I spoke about the places that

00:03:23 --> 00:04:04

are most valuable in your city. And if you look at globally we have Mecca and Medina closely followed by Al Masjid AXA, known as the three haram. Haram means things that are prohibited or more prohibited there. What that means is you would be getting a biggest sin if you were to sin in those places. Not to say that that which is haram is okay in other places, but it's worse when it comes to a blessed place. Imagine a person wanting to commit adultery and then they go into the masjid and do it they're starving Allah, may Allah protect us imagine a person wanting to sin they go to Mecca or Medina and sin there. I think a true believer would never do that. May Allah forgive our

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

shortcomings. So we know of the places and we know that some places are higher in value than others and in spirituality. Well, another very interesting point is not all the times are the same. We have the places known as haram the three harms, but can Medina Al Aqsa right, we also have the months known as the Haram months in that show. Download he's now shall Russia. V kita IV

00:04:38 --> 00:04:59

V kita. I've been here all my follow up was the one mean ha ha tune home. The day that Allah created the heavens and the earth he dictated and decided that the number of months will be 12. From them they will be four that will be known as the Haram months.

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

Located de Ville hija, Muharram and Raja, those are the months that are known as the prohibited months why?

00:05:09 --> 00:05:51

You're not allowed to commence warfare. Just like Mecca and Medina. You're not allowed to commence war in Mecca and Medina. You're not allowed to harm anyone hurt anyone. If someone does hurt you then you're allowed to defend yourself. But you cannot make an offensive attack in Mecca or Medina Subhanallah because they are known as haram. Similarly, when it comes to the months that are haram, you're not allowed to commence warfare. But if someone attacked you during those months, you're allowed to retaliate. Funny how or surprising how are amazing how are interesting how Ramadan is not one of those months, yet Ramadan is a beautiful month, which has great value. However, Ramadan has

00:05:51 --> 00:06:18

its own virtue, it comes with something unique. Many of the battles took place in the month of Ramadan, including the Battle of better 17th of Ramadan. SubhanAllah. Remember that date. So the months are also not all the same. One of the Haram months is actually verbal, hijab, like I said, you're not allowed to engage in warfare. So many things are prohibited during those months.

00:06:19 --> 00:07:11

Imagine a place and a time both together, holding value, and you're there. So you're in Makkah, and the time is one of these months, and from those months Subhanallah there are days that are considered the best days to engage in worship. Now, let's get this clear. The days during the first 10 of the ledger are more virtuous than the days of the month of Ramadan. And I'm not making a mistake there. But the nights of Ramadan are more virtuous than the nights of the 10 of the hedger amazing. So people say but Ramadan is supposed to be the highest, yes, in terms of nights. That's why the acts of worship and Ramadan, notice they're more at night. They're more at night. You have

00:07:11 --> 00:08:03

the tarawih you have the PMO lane you have the Tilawat of the Quran. You have the livening of the night so much more. So that is in Ramadan. Laylatul Qadr Allah calls it The Night of Decree where all your deeds for the next year are decreed the Night of Power Subhan Allah, Allah says lay led to Ghaderi Hiram in El facia, that Night of Decree is more virtuous or better than 1000 months 83 Or more 83 plus years actually Subhan Allah. So amazing how Allah keeps the virtue of these 10 days more than the days of Ramadan, but the nights of Ramadan more than these 10 days. So here's the Hadith. In fact, before I say the Hadith, here's the verse Surah Al Fajr. While February one i Annie

00:08:03 --> 00:08:43

national, Allah swears an oath by the dawn, and then he swears an oath by the 10 knights. What is he referring to? He's referring to the first 10 days of the hijab. People might say, Well, why did he say nights? Well, in Arabic and English, many times when people want to say how long they stayed somewhere, or they want to refer to how many days they went somewhere, they actually would not be wrong if they said, We are there or we were there for five nights, but they meant five days Subhanallah it's not wrong, it's language. But and it's confirmed by the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So that's amazing. Now, we've determined that the month of the Hijjah

00:08:43 --> 00:09:27

is a haram month, the place of Mecca is a haram place which means things that are haram or more haram there. And there are certain other things that are haram. Like for example, when you're in the condition of haram, notice the words. These are powerful words. Haram, you have entered the condition where you've worn clothing of peace, the clothing of serenity, the clothing of submission, you're not allowed to hurt any animals. You're not allowed to hit anything. You're not allowed to take off a portion of your body, your organs, your skin, your hair, your nails, etc, etc. In the condition of a haram when you're going to do the pilgrimage the minor or major pilgrimage. Now look

00:09:27 --> 00:09:29

at all the virtue gathering together.

00:09:30 --> 00:09:59

You have the Hajj in the month of the hijab, you have the place of Mecca, you have the condition of a haram. You have people who have been charitable, you have people who are praying salah, so these are the these are the pillars of Islam, Salah is covered, the charities are covered people give charities when they go for Hajj. Definitely. And people give charities during the days of now, the days of sacrifice your sub you're not allowed to eat alone. Allah says for Colome

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

in how to remove

00:10:02 --> 00:10:38

yourself lucky you eat from it and you feed the poor, you feed the needy, the ones who are you know, homeless, helpless, etc. So Allah says you feed so that is charity, the charity is covered. Amazing. Now, on top of that you're in a condition of a haram. You're you're not allowed to shave your head during a specific time while you're on the part of the pilgrimage, the first part of the pilgrimage. So everything has come together the five pillars of Islam, you're busy saying, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.

00:10:39 --> 00:11:10

Illa Illa Allah Who Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, one Illa Hill Han. Allah is the Greatest Allah is the Greatest there is none worthy of worship besides Allah. Allah is the Greatest and for him is all praise. SubhanAllah. So isn't that the declaration of the first pillar of Islam? You have the five daily prayers. That's the second pillar of Islam. You have the fasting Whoa. SubhanAllah. We are told, and now I'm coming to the Hadith.

00:11:11 --> 00:11:53

Ma'am, in a year, I'm in Alabama to Salehi HA, HA HA Illallah him in Harvey Nash. There are no days in which good deeds are more loved by Allah than these 10 days. So the prophets Allah Salam used to fast during the nine days, why not the 10th because the 10th Fasting is haram. It's prohibited. It's the day of Eid. And the Prophet SAW Selim tells us clearly you're not allowed to fast on the day of eat done SubhanAllah. In fact, there is another narration, a Yamata Sriti a Yamo. A clean or should have been with a creme de la, the days of tertiary IQ, the days of tertiary in a nutshell, the days when you're uttering this,

00:11:55 --> 00:12:01

the day of Eid and the the days after that you're not allowed to fast during the days those days.

00:12:02 --> 00:12:43

Do you know that it's amazing. The explanation the Day of Arafah is very virtuous when it comes to fasting but not for the one in Hajj. The one in Hajj is allowed to fast after that, after the eat, not on the day of eat. Those of us elsewhere, we are allowed to fast in fact, it is highly, highly recommended. I hope you're fasting today in sha Allah, may Allah accept it from all of us, highly recommended to be fasting on this day, the day of Arafah. And in fact, according to the correct opinion of the people, the scholars, it is the ninth of the hedger wherever you are on earth. One might say What do you mean? Well, wherever you see them on, there are differences of opinion. And I

00:12:43 --> 00:13:27

don't mean to belittle any opinion. But according to the majority of scholars, it's the ninth of the hijab, wherever you are considered the Day of Arafah. So if you've seen the moon before, the people in Saudi Arabia, so the moon, and that has happened in the past, probably will happen sometime in the future, today might have been your day of eat. If that's the case. It's hard for you to fast how can you fast when you've seen the moon prior to the people in Mecca and Medina, and they have declared the read a day after you. In that particular case you fast according to your own calendar, the ninth of the ledger, but nowadays, mostly people see the moon either with Saudi or after Saudi,

00:13:27 --> 00:14:05

with Mecca or after Makkah. And so still, the majority of scholars feel that you should follow the ninth of the ledger there are some who say you should follow the Day of Arafah. Like I said, if you are following the day of RFI Maccha you are not covered the day you see the moon before them, people haven't thought of that happening. And it has happened. I recall the last time around there were some countries that saw the moon before Maccha. And those who were following Mecca was stumped midwicket, they didn't know what to do. They had to come back and say, well, well, we saw the moon, what do we do now? The hadith says, You know what, you've got too fast. That was Ramadan. Anyway,

00:14:06 --> 00:14:45

like I said, that is actually differences of opinion. To be honest, it's minor. It's not a major thing. But the day of Arafah whether you're following the opinion of the night, which I follow, or you're following the opinion of alpha, alpha of the people of alpha, and I told you the point there is one day when you see the moon before then you will be stuck. But it's okay if there is no big deal there because Subhanallah There are mountains of scholars on both sides. So that day to fast it expiate the sins of this year and the next year, so say I've arrived today I'm fasting if I'm fasting for the sake of Allah, when that fast is accepted, all the sins I committed in 1441 forgiven

00:14:46 --> 00:14:59

all the sins I will be committing in 1442 forgiven which sins the minor ones only Subhanallah not the major ones. The major ones require specific Toba specific Tober so that's a virtue of this day, you faster this day, so

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

Allah Subhan Allah. So what is this day all about? Well, let's get back to the issue of these 10 days first being the best days to do good deeds. And the prophets are seldom used to fast a lot through these days. The nine days I explained why the 10th day is haram, because it's the day of Eid, but the ninth highly recommended for the non hygiene, the hygiene not recommended. So, the first thing is done, in the hajj is being done the Zika the charity is being done all five pillars.

00:15:34 --> 00:16:20

At the same time, all five pillars are being done. What create value at a place where Subhanallah it's considered sacred, sacred month sacred place sacred Masjid sacred condition sacred day Subhanallah the day of alpha one narration says it's one of the best days it's the best day. And in fact, actually Allahu anha says quite clearly that there is no day more likely for people to be freed from hellfire than this Day of Arafah so ask Allah to free you from hellfire Allahumma artic recombinant, where he covered in our own Mahajan Amina Na, O Allah free our next and the next of our fathers and mothers from hellfire, which means Oh Allah grant us freedom from hellfire. That's a

00:16:20 --> 00:17:07

good to add to make today. And subhanAllah she continues to say that Allah boasts to the angels about the people in ARAVA, this year there are less, Allah boasts about them to his angels. And he says, Look at my worshippers, they've gathered for me, sacred place, sacred day, sacred month, etc, sacred condition, the condition of the harem and so on. Allah says push he do come and may refer to now I want you to bear witness that I have given them completely. May Allah forgive all of us and the judge may Allah make it easy for them. For Allah He they are fortunate to be there this year, on our behalf, they will be making dua, and they have actually fulfilled this

00:17:09 --> 00:17:47

fifth pillar of Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept from all of them. I mean, one wonders what difficulty and hardship they must have had in their lives how Allah chose them for this it was just amazing, very fortunate indeed. But that having been said, Allah has chosen all of us we are meaning we're believers, we actually have this beautiful day, it's our day as well, where did the name Arafa come from very important for you to know. Out of a means to know the day is known as the day of out of the place is known as the place of Arafat. So just remember the difference out of fat with the top at the end

00:17:48 --> 00:18:03

is the place and Arafa with a ton of Bupa which turns into a ha when you stop is actually the name of the place. So I hope you sorry, the name of the day, sorry. So the day is Yo Ma and the places you're known as out of that.

00:18:04 --> 00:18:48

So out of a means to know what happened on that day it is said and there are narrations that make mention of how Adam and Eve or Adam and Hawa May peace be upon them met each other they got to know each other after they were expelled from Jana, they met each other in Mahara, that's common. It's common. It's widespread. But there is another narration that says Ibrahim alayhis salam was made to know the the the duties of the monastic the various acts and rituals to be fulfilled acts of worship to be fulfilled for the Hajj by Gibreel and a Salah while he was in alpha. So he was told those while he was in alpha for out of the house so he knew them there so the place was called Alpha

00:18:48 --> 00:19:30

that's another narration some of the scholars hold that opinion but another very interesting strong opinion is that the people get to know each other then it's a place of gathering place of gathering people gather them so the people get to our phone they get to know each other fear of in ARAVA so that in Arafat, sorry. So when you get to Arafat on the day of ARAVA, then Subhan Allah, you get to know each other. So these are just some of the opinions regarding the place known as Arafat, and why it is called Arafat and Arafat. And by the way, if you were to go to Arafa, a day before Arafa or a day after Arafa your Hajj is not counted.

00:19:32 --> 00:20:00

And had Giraffa that's the Hadith. The most important pillar of Hajj is alpha. Wow. And had you had this alpha. You've been to Arafat, you did your heart you didn't go to your heart is not done. Simple as that. And just ARAVA, so if a person went before not done, went after not done Subhanallah you have to go at a certain time, certain date. I can't go in Ramadan and say you know what? Well, it's what I can't go when it's empty off

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

Season and see what it's empty now let me go now then when I come for Hajj I won't go too out of the way, you have to go. So Arafa it's the place. The day is the night of the hijab, and the place and the condition, you are now there.

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

The best day, the best day of the year, the Day of Arafah SubhanAllah. For what? For freedom from hellfire.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:58

And this is something that I shall the Allahu anha makes mention of quite clearly, I think the Hadith in Sahih Muslim if I'm not mistaken, and even insolent and aside, but to be honest, the dua of the day of Arafa is so powerful the acts of worship are so powerful that tech beer is happening that Tallinn is happening the praise of Allah is happening, the Hajj is happening, the people elsewhere are fasting on that day, imagine everything's coming together. People are being charitable people are praising Allah, people are praying the five daily prayers people are declaring the first pillar people are enhanced. So all the five pillars are again there, what a powerful day Now do you

00:20:58 --> 00:21:14

understand the power of this day? Power? Subhanallah This is why the Hadith says there are no days better than these days, the best being the Day of Arafah. So my brothers and sisters on the Day of Arafah what happened?

00:21:15 --> 00:21:16

Well, I can explain

00:21:17 --> 00:22:08

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam over and above speaking about the reward of those who fast on the day of alpha. And I'm saying here for the non * like I explained, he delivered a hot bath. In his final hatch the farewell hutch, he delivered a hook but in Arafa What did he say? Nothing. It's a powerful day, powerful place, powerful time, powerful condition and everything is so power packed. And the time of the day is after salata. Vor so the Hajaj would go to Arafa from the morning of the day of Arafah they will make Salah to for the salah to NASA and then when the sun sets before they make Madrid they will go to must deliver so after they do Salah to Laura and Assam they will be

00:22:08 --> 00:22:49

making a lot of dua it's a time where Subhanallah you know, it reminds me of how star Villa I have to give this example simply because so many people would understand it, you know, when you have a football match right at the end, and there's just a few minutes remaining and how exciting it becomes. And they want you to score as many goals as you can. The goal you know, the the the match can literally tilt in any direction based on how many goals you're going to score, you know, on the day of alpha, it's a different example. But just to bring it closer to your mind I gave you that. What are your understanding? You're now have, you're now having a few moments remaining. Come on,

00:22:49 --> 00:23:30

what do I see you making? make beautiful blinds, Go on, ask for forgiveness, ask for what you want, repeat it say it again and again. Have a list of things that you want to ask Allah for. It's beautiful, whether you're in Arafat on the Day of Arafah or you're not in Arafat on that day and you're elsewhere. No problem. You ask Allah you call out to Allah you pray to Allah you, you know Subhanallah the prophets of salaam got up and gave a talk. It must be very important. It was an extremely important talk Short, sweet to the point. What did he say? I want to know that virtually out of the hotbar up to this day in Arafat. The whole debate happens. On the Day of Arafah the Imam

00:23:30 --> 00:24:15

gets up and he gives a talk reminding the Muslims about their duties Unto Allah. So what did the Prophet SAW Selim say? The first thing he spoke about was blood. Don't spill the blood of each other. Don't murder each other. Don't. Don't commit murder. Your blood is sacred more sacred than the cabin Subhanallah your blood is sacred more sacred than the Kava. Your blood is sacred, more sacred than this day. Your blood is sacred, more sacred than this place. Your blood is sacred more sacred than Maccha more sacred than Arafat more sacred than the condition. Or the Hadith actually says karma to me Kamada fishery Kumada de Bella de Kohan similar to the prohibition similar to the

00:24:15 --> 00:24:22

sanctity of this place, so in the same way, life is also sacred, as sacred as the place. So

00:24:25 --> 00:24:48

number one, don't commit murder. My brothers and sisters, that means solve your problems. Work with each other, learn to respect each other, have a big heart learn to forgive each other. Imagine here is the newbie. Here is the Prophet, the most beloved the one who is the leader, and he's telling us in his final pilgrimage to say all my followers you're all my own man. Don't kill each other.

00:24:50 --> 00:24:59

May Allah grant us the lesson. Don't fight each other. Don't Don't kill each other. Know in the demonic what else? What

00:25:00 --> 00:25:32

A while ago, don't steal from each other. Don't deceive each other in business don't shortchange each other, watch out your wealth, don't usurp the wealth of another, don't Subhanallah So, your your life and your wealth is all sacred. The wealth of each other is sacred. I can't steal someone else's things I will pay a heavy heavy penalty. In fact, if I were to kill someone, it is as though I've killed entire humanity. And if I were to steal from someone, I have committed such a heavy crime that I don't even know if I'm going to be forgiven.

00:25:33 --> 00:25:59

These are the basic elements of existence. And he mentioned them on the Day of alpha. That's what alpha is all about. Ponder over how you look at others solve your matters. Watch watch how you treat people. Be careful. Your wealth other people's wealth sacred don't steal don't pinch, don't deceive don't cheat, don't show don't shortchange Subhan Allah then you're a Muslim, then you're a true believer.

00:26:01 --> 00:26:39

And he says thereafter he goes on and on he speaks about demand como Anwar Hola, como Rolla, calm you know, don't even insult one another. Don't demean each other. Don't be little each other, accuse each other falsely, be careful. All this made mention of, and He repeated it on the day of aid as well. He repeated it during the days of slaughter and sacrifice. He repeated the same words, this hope has been repeated more than once by the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam with various weddings, and in on the Day of Arafah. He said something amazing. Do you know what he says?

00:26:41 --> 00:27:09

He said, everything that was of the period of ignorance, I'm putting it under my feet, it no longer is valid. But does that mean all the ignorance the way they treated women? What they did all the cultural things that were so taboo and so silly. He says, under my feet thrown, racism was part of Janelia thrown all of this throne. It is finished no more.

00:27:11 --> 00:27:57

Let's ask ourselves, racism, tribalism nepotism. Wow, nepotism? Isn't that alive and healthy in some communities in many communities? A stock villa. If we're believers, here is the messenger on the Day of Arafah saying Watch out. No racism all the Jamia, kick it out. Don't maltreat women Ilia. Kick it out. So don't think you're superior. Jaya. Helia. Kick it out. Learn to respect people. Imagine they will revert Muslims. On that day, who are the readers? Every single one of them will read this. Do you know that? Nowadays the strange thing is we won't even allow our daughters to marry or revert or our sons to marry a river that we claim we come from the family of the Prophet. Well, here is the

00:27:57 --> 00:28:25

same prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam telling you racism is out. tribalism is out. Nepotism is out. All the isms are out. Totally, completely kick them out. It's Janelia. You surfing the wealth of another insulting, false accusation all out Subhan Allah, may Allah grant us, goodness, superstition. All of that is gone out. Don't engage in magic. Don't do all that was part of John Healy. So it's right for us to mention it here today.

00:28:26 --> 00:28:27

Kicked out.

00:28:28 --> 00:28:32

Then he spared a moment to talk about women. What did he say?

00:28:34 --> 00:29:16

He said it took Allah Himself. Fear Allah regarding your treatment of women. couldn t say this The Day of Arafah. I remember speaking to a system of long ago and she told me when I read what the Prophet sallallaahu Salam said about the Day of Arafah I would have called it Women's Rights Day Subhanallah because he made it clear saying fear Allah regarding treating the treatment of women. Who are the women your daughter's Watch out. Watch out Don't be unfair. Your sisters, be careful. The Prophet SAW Selim warns you about it. Who else? Primarily your spouse's, they've given up their families to come to you? How do you treat them? Subhanallah What do you how do you talk to them? How

00:29:16 --> 00:29:36

do you make them feel? It duckula have in Nissa fear Allah regarding the women. And Allah subhanho wa Taala clearly tells us this in the sutra known as sort of Nyssa Allah tells us to fear Allah and to fear the wounds that gave birth to the women in a nutshell.

00:29:37 --> 00:29:41

So he says, he goes on he gives a little bit more detailed. You know what he says?

00:29:43 --> 00:29:59

He says, You married the women using the name of Allah, Sophia Allah, how you treat them. Oh, oh, here he is speaking to the married men. Watch out. Those women. You use the name of Allah. You use the name

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

Have Allah to take them to marry them.
