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

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa Sallim wa ala Sha Colombia he will move slowly in the beginner What have you been our karate unit now Mohammed bin Abdullah? Allahu Allah Allah He was happy he after the sala de vida Muslim Ummah that we begin this video by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala we asked him the almighty to send his choices to blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of my dear brothers and sisters. We are just a few hours away

00:00:47--> 00:00:51

from the most powerful of days,

00:00:53--> 00:00:56

otherwise known as the 10 days of the hitcher.

00:00:58--> 00:01:17

These days, my dear brothers and sisters, our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as a reporter have said, there are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these 10 days. Let that sink in this season, that you are headed towards these 10 days.

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

There are no days

00:01:21--> 00:01:25

in which righteous deeds are more beloved unto Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:01:27--> 00:02:15

To put things into perspective, think about it. Let's say there's this big store in your town or city and there is this, you know, sale for a limited period of time there's this season, you know, where you get some mind boggling discounts, where perhaps you're able to make a killing in terms of profit, and in terms of, you know, discounts and whatnot, you would see a lot of chaos pandemonium, you know, people rushing and you see this happening on these Cyber Monday and Black Friday sales and all that. So Hannah law. So here you are, you are witnessing the mercy of your makers of Hannah Horta, Allah out of his infinite wisdom and his sheer messy, he keeps bringing about these seasons

00:02:15--> 00:02:36

of opportunity, these golden seasons of opportunity for us to get closer to him for us to accrue as many rewards as possible Subhan Allah. So this is a beautiful opportunity, a huge gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala unto us, and for this video, I'd like to touch on

00:02:37--> 00:02:45

some powerful deeds that one can engage in during these 10 days.

00:02:47--> 00:02:59

And before I get into the deeds, I'd like to mention that these leads are not only restricted to these 10 days, these are general good deeds. But at times what happens is you do get lists

00:03:00--> 00:03:01

and perhaps,

00:03:02--> 00:03:24

you know, pieces of information telling you that you know, what, perform these five deeds performed these 10 deeds. And what I hope to do in this video is to try and shift your perspective a little bit. Where Yes, importance need to be importance needs to be given towards the

00:03:25--> 00:03:37

rituals in terms of Amell in terms of Salah in terms of reading the Quran. And along with that, I'd like to also remind ourselves to focus within,

00:03:38--> 00:04:22

to work on our insights to work on our hearts, to work on our relationships, to work on our friendships, to work on our ties with our family members to work on our relationship with our parents, with our spouses, with our children, with our siblings, these 10 days, this is an opportunity you see a lot of people think that oh my god 10 days, so you know what I need to max my prayers, I need to max my recitation of the Quran, I need to max my fasting, which is a good thing, which is a good thing. I'm not dismissing it, nor am I disregarding it. But along with that, my dear brothers and sisters, it's important that the balance be struck. Because ask yourself

00:04:23--> 00:04:24

what is

00:04:25--> 00:04:33

where is the the effect of the Salah if this individual is not talking to his mother,

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

if this individual is disregarding his father, if this this, this individual is not fulfilling his rights towards his mother and father, towards his wife, towards his children, towards his siblings towards his family members. So you see, when you look at it from that angle, you understand that this individual has lost the plot, because his exterior actions have not influenced him to an extent where

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

He has improved from within. So many brothers and sisters when you look at the teachings of our beloved messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was a balanced individual he strove to strike that balance and to also illustrate unto us that it is of utmost importance that we to strike that balance. So I'm going to be running through this list of deeds, which include like I said, a lot of rituals and focus on you know, our conduct our good conduct our flock a number of factors in Sharla and, and you'll see there are so many deeds Subhana Allah that you can indulge in during these 10 days, and inshallah accrue multiply the rewards from the generous Lord may Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

accept our deeds, I mean, so number one, a Salah.

00:05:50--> 00:05:58

Of course, it is of utmost importance. So many brothers and sisters, it is upon us to work on our Salawat

00:05:59--> 00:06:47

start off with your five daily prayers, where you ensure that you offer it on time that you do not disregard it, that you work on enhancing your quality of your Salah. You work on enhancing the quality of your Salah, where you avoid praying, like a hand picking on the ground. You avoid praying lazily and heedlessly No, you you work towards enhancing the quality of your Salah you work towards offering it on time you work towards planning your day around the five daily Salawat. So this is something that you know we have to constantly keep working on because Chapin the devil, our sworn enemy, he works hard to you know make a slip in this regard to make us drift away from this

00:06:47--> 00:06:54

obligation that we have to fulfill unto our makers of Hannah hautala number two siyam fasting

00:06:55--> 00:07:37

these 10 days we have reports from the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in terms of the practice of the Prophet that is that he would fast during these 10 days. So you have optional fasts, otherwise known as nanofiller. So cM nephila and on top of that one that needs to be highlighted is the fasting Of The Day of arafah. For those who are not pilgrims, and that's the bulk of us in today's landscape because a lot of us have no even if you have the means to do it, you have no you know, Avenue or channel to go to Hajj because of the pandemic, we pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala eases our affairs that he brings about healing and takes us all back to normalcy soon. I mean, so

00:07:38--> 00:08:20

for those who are not on a pilgrimage, fasting the day of alpha. So this is a very powerful day, many virtues attached to it. So it's something that we have to focus on. It is basically the ninth of the major the day prior to the day of aid, the day of aid is a 10th of the hygiene, it is prohibited to fast on the day of aid, it is a day of celebration, it is a day of happiness. So you're supposed to pass the day prior. So generally, you're supposed to fast due to the 10 days, you know, and the fast that is highlighted and it's these 10 days is that they have an offer, then we have sort of giving our charity, giving our charity to ensure that you know,

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

we

00:08:25--> 00:08:38

attach our hearts on to Allah subhanho wa Taala and not towards these materialistic possessions. You know, at times we hang a lot behind these materialistic possessions, only to realize after a period of time that all of this is few tiles.

00:08:40--> 00:09:08

All of this is few tile, it's all temporary, it's all transitory, so Han Allah so it it is a ritual that simultaneously works on our hearts as well when we give out sadaqa so giving out during these 10 days many brothers and sisters, you do have specific acts of charity like the hiya corbon which is supposed to be done on the day of eat but along with that during the 10 days of the hedger

00:09:09--> 00:09:34

because you see what I'm I'm saying this is because some people think that you know what the the charity that I need to give is over here and then just that, but no, it depends on your financial capacity, obviously. But then again, during the 10 days of that hedger, you could do so much in terms of charity, you could get yourself involved in in financing forms of Southern Nigeria. You could

00:09:35--> 00:09:55

you could feed people, you could provide people water to drink, which I'm going to list as separate deeds, but all of this comes under sort of how you could empower others. You could help others you know, who are in difficulty all of this comes in to charity Mashallah. So try to involve yourself in

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

a variety of acts of charity.

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

What does the wise investor say? Do not put all your eggs in one basket, right? In terms of investments, diversify, diversify your portfolio. So does it not make all the most sense when it comes to your investments in regards to an IRA? Do you just want to rely on one source of income? Do you just want to rely on perhaps your

00:10:24--> 00:11:09

salary that's coming through or do you want to diversify? Do you want to try and establish multiple sources of income, however small they may be? So likewise, when it comes to your deeds, many brothers and sisters it is it is best that you have this variation where you have rewards accruing from different channels and going to try and establish sort of area as well so that after you pass away, you will still continue to accrue rewards be in a lap. Along with it we have Vic, remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala in the form of delille singla ly in the form of this be glorifying Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah He will be having to use with Hana light are the same, then you have to

00:11:09--> 00:11:46

be a law a kebab, then you have to meet where you praise Allah subhanho wa Taala Alhamdulillah then you have statements like La hawla wala quwata illa Billah you have different forms of remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala and these 10 days and like I said, all these deeds you can do it generally. But during these 10 days these days are known as the best of days and such a powerful season you want to keep your tongues moist with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala because remember my dear brothers and sisters, the only size of regret that a believer is going to have on in Allah Hara is that you know what I should have said one must have had Allah I should have said one 100 lashes

00:11:46--> 00:12:11

one more Allahu Akbar and I'd have another tree in my orchards that have another palace built for me because this is the time to plant the seeds and you go there you harvest so there is no way for you to perform deeds whilst UI in general. So try to you know, indulge in as much remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala as possible then you have repeating after the Advent

00:12:13--> 00:12:35

now you can see I'm going into a nice list of deeds that at times we tend to overlook these are all deeds that accrue rewards for you my dear brother my dear sister, so when the Advent is calling out the event, but are the teachings of the prophet Elijah in this regard is supposed to repeat after the month in the margin says a lot about on law, Kabbalah then you repeat a lot

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

a lot

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

about a lot

00:12:43--> 00:12:52

Oh, walkabout or the new repeat Allahu Akbar, Allah. I shared my night I had a large I don't know night and then you go on to repeat after them. I think

00:12:53--> 00:13:33

this establishes this conviction this faith is tranquility in your heart. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our hearts towards goodness, I mean, and then you have still without seeking forgiveness or stop or align our theme but you seek the forgiveness of your maker. So Hannah Waddell, you know we have a Heidi's with Robertson Allison used to make accessible still far as one report, if I'm not mistaken, more than 70 times as per the report approximately 100 times and this is talking about the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam you know what a great individual he was alone when he when he was alone and where you and I stand in comparison to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We I

00:13:33--> 00:13:40

would say if the messenger made so much of it so far, than you and I from morning to evening, we need to be in so far due to the fact that you know,

00:13:42--> 00:13:49

we are so weak in so many areas now that is our affairs, I mean, then you have to,

00:13:50--> 00:14:34

but you make the onto Allah Subhana Allah that these 10 days they are powerful season and they only come about once a year. So use these 10 days My dear brother, my dear sister to make as much as possible. I'm sure there's so much for you to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala for and 100 law we're being blessed where we this this beautiful link that we have with Allah subhanho wa Taala all you have to do is raise your hands or maybe you know after you're done with your prayers, raise your hands after you're done with reading of the Quran. Raise your hands and supplicate and to your maker. He is waiting to answer your das. Then we have Salawat we love Deficit Disorder long while he

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

was selling me. My mother my father and myself be ransomed and sacrificed himself alajuela value send them Allahumma salli ala Muhammad wa ala le Mohammed kamasan, late Ibaraki mo while le Brahim webedi Kyla Bahama de while Alamo, Mohammed the come about Anna but on Himalaya and Ibrahim in nicomedia, Majid please remember whenever you hear his name, say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:15:00--> 00:15:32

allama Salli ala Muhammad Wiener Allah Mohammed, do not be stingy in that regard many brothers many sisters, likewise try to send excessive blessings and salutations upon the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Then you have read in the Koran these 10 days. capitalize on these days My dear brothers and sisters to read as much as possible from the Quran. For every letter that you read, you know what the prophets are Islam says you get 10 revolts Allahu Akbar and then the Hadith the Prophet goes on to say Alif Lam Meem is not one letter but rather Alif is one lamb is one and Mimi is one. So when you read and if

00:15:34--> 00:15:45

me he you have a crude that theory votes, mind blowing panela the generosity of your maker subhanho wa Taala.

00:15:47--> 00:16:03

So the next action item is pondering on the Quran. to double Yes, by reading the Koran you do accrue the woods. But as Allah says in the Quran, affiliated the Buddha, Allah Lubin aka Aloha, do they not ponder? Do they not make the debate over the Quran? So it's important that we make sure

00:16:04--> 00:16:08

that we reflect and ponder on the powerful words of our maker.

00:16:09--> 00:16:23

Then we have historical memorizing the Quran. Now you shouldn't think oh, that's just something for the scholars. That's something for the whole fall. The Guardians of the and that's something for the young children to do. I'm too old,

00:16:24--> 00:17:03

you know, to memorize the Quran? No, not at all. And why don't you place the intention and work towards it even if it be in the form of baby steps? Because what does the religion teach us when you have placed a sincere intention and movement and when you're working towards it if you pass away in the process, even if it means that it's going to take years and years and years? All right. Let's say you're just memorizing an idea, a day, an hour a day, so you're about 6000 a day yet one day it's gonna take you some time. But let's say in the process you pass away and you have the sincere intention to memorize insha Allah Allah because of your intention, the prophecy licenses enamel,

00:17:03--> 00:17:21

Amma Lubin yet your actions are but by your intentions, you will inshallah be raised amongst the her father and the guardians of the Koran. Male lawmakers from the people of the allama Jelena and male lawmakers from the people of the Quran, who are the elite or the special ones and to allow male lawmakers from the guardians of the Quran.

00:17:23--> 00:17:32

And male lawmakers from the guardians of the Quran who have committed the Quran to our memory and also who lived the Quran like the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was a walking Koran.

00:17:33--> 00:18:03

The next action item steadying the Tafseer of the whole on the country in regards to the Quran. Today, my dear brothers, media sisters, you have so many tools at your disposal, so many channels and at the end of the day, you have to do your homework, do your research, due diligence in regards to the channels that you are obtaining your knowledge from, ensure that they are backed by evidence from the Koran and the authentic Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because today,

00:18:04--> 00:18:26

I mean, anybody can have a platform out there, anybody, all you have to do is just open up a channel, open up a page and you can start, you know, speaking your mind, but that does not necessarily mean that it is the right thing that is being disseminated. So simple logic.

00:18:27--> 00:18:31

Just say you have to say you want some medical advice.

00:18:33--> 00:19:18

Okay, medical advice. Are you going to be just googling some YouTube doctor? And listening? Let's say you Google some YouTube doctor, listen to his advice. And do you think you'll go on to implement that advice? No. On the other hand, what we will do is we will do research, if it's in regards to a specific area, a specific body part, we would ensure that we go to a specialist in that regard, even if it means that we have to spend to book an appointment, even if it means that we have to wait days on end to get that appointment, even if it means that we have to travel far to the hospital where this doctor is located. Even if it means we have to spend hours waiting, because there's such a big

00:19:18--> 00:19:44

crowd to meet the doctor. And even if it means that you're only going to get 10 to 15 minutes to meet the doctor. And the doctor is obviously going to show you another appointment. We go through all of that. Okay, why? Because we want advice from a qualified individual. So then how come when it comes to the deen of Allah? Okay, the deen of Allah. In regards to your asset, are you willing to take your deen just from anywhere

00:19:45--> 00:19:52

just from anywhere without it being backed by evidence from the Quran and the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So my dear brother, my dear sister,

00:19:54--> 00:19:56

be vigilant, do your homework.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

And once you're done with that,

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

You will also again, then come to a conclusion that yes, Alhamdulillah, you do have channels at your disposal to further your knowledge to seek your knowledge you may have, it doesn't always have to be online, you could have a scholar, a hidden gem, living, you know, close to you so panela that you have perhaps not benefited enough from. So by all means, try to further your knowledge as much as possible, be it See, I'm an advocate for using technology. And you can see all of it around me, I'm not against it at all, I'm not against using social media platforms, you know, for good purposes. By all means, like I said, I'm an advocate for it. But let's strike a balance. And at the end of the

00:20:42--> 00:21:10

day, if it works for you, well and good Otherwise, there are other means for you to accrue knowledge. And my point being, no one can make excuses in today's time era, because you have so many tools at your disposal. And I feel we're going to be held accountable if we do not use these tools that are at our disposal in a productive manner in terms of seeking and furthering our knowledge. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, open those of beneficial knowledge for us. I mean, having said that,

00:21:12--> 00:21:17

we can also discuss sharing content you see today. And I would say that's

00:21:19--> 00:21:20

a good deed as well.

00:21:21--> 00:22:07

If you're wondering how today, I mean, you take any social media platform, there's always a way to show you support by liking that piece of content, very rarely do they have like a dislike button. So usually go on to like the content. And then you also have an option to reshare repost, retweet the content across to your circles. Now just ask yourself, what kind of content do you like? What kind of content Do you share around in your circles at times, we don't hesitate at all to share, you know, content that may not necessarily benefit us in this world or the next. But when it comes to powerful content, when it comes to good and productive content, we tend to skim over it. It's very

00:22:07--> 00:22:23

unfortunate, when you look at what trends these days, you know, all kinds of observed things at times that don't necessarily benefit an individual. Those are the things that trend and those are the things that people like to share. It's sad. But as believers, we should

00:22:24--> 00:23:06

change that behavior. And try to share things that are productive things that will help you accrue rewards, let's say if I were to share a Hadith of the Prophet sallal Islam at the end of the day, you're not sharing me, you're sharing the words of the messenger lives. And so for example, if I were to say that, you know, the message Elias says this, if you do this, you get this many reports. Now you do it. And on top of that, you're sharing it across to your circle. And each and every one of us we have our own circles of influence, be on WhatsApp be on any of these social media platforms, or at least be in the form of images liking, you know, thumbs up for the video. And in

00:23:06--> 00:23:13

commenting down below by the way, it's not a plug for you know, my video, but you know, if you know

00:23:14--> 00:23:31

you will know how these algorithms work. They need you know, content needs interaction. And that's when it the the algorithm the system boosts it and shows it to more people and and and you know, there's more exposure,

00:23:32--> 00:24:05

people gain access to it, etc, etc. So let's work towards you know, sharing more of the productive and good content. So moving on to the next action item it is to teach the Quran to others. If you have learned the Quran, it's upon us to impart the knowledge that we have sought. So the prophets of Allah Islam he says hydrocarbon pty limited Quran Allah Allah the best from amongst you are those who learn the whole and teach it to others. So try to teach the Quran to others starting off with your own family members, you know your own children, your siblings, your spouse, and then even moving on to other people as well.

00:24:07--> 00:24:54

Next, good deed tober Toba is not something restricted for the month of Ramadan is not restricted for the sinners only or for a specific season. It's something that you know, we should make part and parcel of our regular lives. Toba is to turn to a loss of Hannah Montana but at the very least, let's use these seasons to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala firmly intending to turn over a new leaf to to to let go of of know you know the things that we in that displease Allah subhanho wa Taala and we sincerely turned to him seeking His forgiveness. Then you have betrayal Valley then treating your parents with goodness. The good treatment of one's parents your mother your father, Allah says the

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

honorable Wiley Dini Santa, in terms of treating parents who are supposed to treat them with

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

ehsaan with excellence upon excellence, my dear brother my dear sister, if you have your mother and father alive with you consider yourself extremely fortunate. You have two massive doorways

00:25:15--> 00:25:20

opened out to you and to Allah subhanho wa Taala and to Jenna

00:25:21--> 00:25:44

go sit down with those who have lost their parents, their mothers, their fathers and listen to their voice listen to their lemons, listen to their cries and listen to how they wish they could go hug their parents and beg for their forgiveness because of perhaps hurting them and disrespecting them and treating them so it is upon us to ensure that we treat our parents well.

00:25:45--> 00:26:07

It is upon us to ensure that if things have gone South that we patch things up we seek their forgiveness and patch things up don't think Oh you know what I'll wait till eight to do it I'll wait till maybe Ramadan to do it. I'll do it next month. What if you pass away before that? What guarantee do we have? I know it's something that a lot of people don't like hearing about and you know, they've

00:26:08--> 00:26:11

scared about it perhaps but isn't that the reality? I mean, like

00:26:12--> 00:26:18

this video that I'm shooting what what guarantee Do I have that I will last until the end of the video?

00:26:20--> 00:26:41

And let me pose that question to you over what guarantee do you have that you will last until the end of this video. So this is how volatile This is how fragile This is how shaky this life is. So let's see is every second that we have to ensure that we put things right so bill robot in treating our parents well sidora him

00:26:42--> 00:27:25

maintaining Family Ties kitten kin very central concept in our Deen as per the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah. So it's important that we maintain our family ties and under this you have medical ties you have your ties with your children, your your siblings, your family members, your aunt's your uncle's, your cousins, it all comes down to this you know where you work towards maintaining your family ties, maintaining unity within your family, this is something that is highly commendable and beautiful and good deed. Then you have silica as they call another vein, maintaining your ties with your parents, friends, you have your father's friends and your mother's friends you

00:27:25--> 00:27:35

as a child, it is important that you maintain good ties with them, because they are your parents friends, and this is what is taught to us through our Dean's Panama Look at how beautiful the teachings of the dean

00:27:36--> 00:27:50

next action item hospitality towards guests Do you have again another central concept the province Allah Islam was a very hospitable host. So being a good host, treating your guests with hospitality, a powerful good deed

00:27:52--> 00:28:32

then you have your neighbors good treatment and to one's neighbors. So you know how much of emphasis is in place in regards to your neighbors. There are enough and more a Heidi's so much to the extent that if you take one Hadith, the narration goes along the lines of this verse, the province analysis report which said, I'm paraphrasing, that the rights of the neighbor were emphasized so much to the extent that I thought that the neighbor would inherit as well Subhanallah just imagine their their rights have been emphasized so much that they were almost going to be included into the equation of inheritance as well where they were your neighbor would inherit from you. So just imagine so what

00:28:32--> 00:29:08

this illustrates is that their rights are upon a very high level and we should ensure that we strive to treat our our neighbors with with goodness and kindness. Next action item if Chateau Salaam spreading Salaam spreading peace, the greetings of peace spreading peace in generals Pamela feeding others it Amata have a beautiful form of charity and as per the words of the province that Allah Islam the best from amongst you are those who feed others. So you can choose to feed as in by cooking some food at home and inviting people or sending the food over to them.

00:29:09--> 00:29:19

Bear in mind that you know we are in a landscape of dealing with the pandemic. So please adhere to the guidelines of your land of your country of your authorities.

00:29:20--> 00:29:59

And along with that, you could also choose to donate to charities that feed others. Now for example, we have a food project where we seek eligible recipients we seek the hungry and the less fortunate and help them out by giving them meals by giving them dry rations. So you could link yourself you could contribute towards a charity of that nature and and fulfill this beautiful deed you could choose to do so. I mean again, it's like I said all these these are not restricted to the 10 days of the hijab. These are general good deeds, but then due to the 10 days of the hijab, we pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala multiplies our rewards. I mean, a good word

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

Do not underestimate the power of a good word, a positive word, where you uplift the life of an individual, the heart of an individual the day of an individual. So share, share positivity, share good words, terminally ill. This is not something restricted for the month of Ramadan, my dear brother, my dear sister, this was the general practice of the Prophet. So at the very least, let's do it in the seasons of goodness. So let's wake up in the night indulgent worship, invoke pray unto Allah subhanho wa Taala then you know sort of robotic we spoke about the five daily prayers and along with that you have the the regular Sunnah prayers attached to these daily prayers. So learn

00:30:38--> 00:31:17

about them and strive to fulfill them as well. accruing more rewards from Allah subhana wa Salatu, Doha, another regular practice of the prophets, Allah Allah send them so let's strive to bring this into our lives as well. You have the avocado Saba, he will Messiah, they are the God of the morning in the evening. So these are the hours these are recitations taught to us by the prophets of Allah Islam that serve as a form of protection. The protective armor if you will, that will protect you from all these forces of evil for example, Bismillah Hilah de la Lu Rama asthma he shot on film out of the will FSM at Yosemite Valley, or would you be Kelly Mattila hit Damn it man shout Rima holla.

00:31:17--> 00:31:50

So you have all these doors that were taught to us by the prophets, Allah Islam, let us make it a regular practice to read it in the morning in the evening. Then you have the God of other times, you know, like for example, when entering your house and leaving your house when entering the message and leaving the message and entering the washroom and leaving the washroom all taught to us by the prophets of Allah Islam. Let's learn these two as memorize them, understand them and implement them in our lives. Next action item sleeping upon purity. This is from the teachings of the prophets, Eliza we have a hadith where we learn that the angels pray for us and we sleep upon purity. So let's

00:31:50--> 00:31:53

strive to sleep upon the purity

00:31:54--> 00:31:57

where instead of you know just coming and crashing,

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

you perform your ablution

00:32:02--> 00:32:26

and ensure that your previous lotter better and then you read the Africa the door has and then go on to retire going to sleep as per the teachings of the Prophet as per the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and insha Allah you will be blessed with a fitful sleep, a good night's sleep to wake up the next day rejuvenated

00:32:27--> 00:32:44

and fit to tackle the day. Moving on now in terms of Friday, the day of Jamal the best day of the week bathing for Juma, preparing for all these you know common the deeds regarding regards to the day of Jamal, then you have smiling.

00:32:46--> 00:32:53

Smiling is considered a form of charity as well as by the teachings of the Robertson and Islam. Unfortunately, some of us think that you know,

00:32:54--> 00:33:29

being religious necessitates a rigid and stern demeanor. I don't know where that notion came from. The Prophet is described as being an individual who used to smile often. And he teaches us that smiling is an act of charity. It is contagious. I'm sure throughout the video, I've been smiling a lot. And each time I smile, you're smiling. Even if not each time, maybe like most of the time at least I hope so. Because smiling is contagious. You know when you smile at times even without you doing you end up smiling.

00:33:30--> 00:33:43

So that's the beauty of it. Like just try it out go smile at someone and see you know that they regardless of how sulky they may look at times, unless they're really really sarki

00:33:44--> 00:33:58

this in voluntary involuntary need to mirror mirror the action and they end up smiling back as well and and a smile you know put so much of beauty light and radiance on on your face.

00:33:59--> 00:34:38

Next action item removing whatever is harmful from the past. This is also on the teachings of the Prophet Soleil Islam so on the path if there's anything that is harmful, remove it. Next action item controlling one's anger and one staff and management and keeping your tongue in check to ensure that only the truth speaking goodness good words come out from your mouth in terms of your anger, you control your anger. Now you may be thinking, but this is somewhat of a vague deed. My dear brother my this So the whole point of mentioning all of this is because during these 10 days use this season to work on yourself.

00:34:39--> 00:34:54

to work on yourself. If you know that you have an anger management problem. Then work on educating yourself and learning how to manage your anger. Learn mechanisms and ways to control your anger to keep it in check.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

Fulfilling one's promises as ambassadors of this Dean

00:35:00--> 00:35:31

Beautiful Dean as Muslims as believers, it is of paramount importance that we stick to our word that we fulfill our promises. But unfortunately many of us have taken up promises likely have taken false hood lightly. May Allah protect us in joining goodness and forbidding evil by you promote, share and enjoying goodness and forbid evil. Unfortunately, today it's topsy turvy, it's the other way around. We tend to enjoy and promote and share evil

00:35:33--> 00:35:53

and stand aloof when it comes to matters of goodness, lowering one's gaze. You know what the teachings of the Quran in this regard cool momineen Yo, tominaga sorry, the believing men and believing women are supposed to lower their gaze. In other words, they're not supposed to cast lustful glances. That's the understanding. So do not look with lust.

00:35:54--> 00:36:05

Do not look like a carnivore. Looking at flesh or a predator. Do not look with lust, lower your gaze. This is the teaching of the Koran.

00:36:06--> 00:36:26

Visiting the sick, as soon as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is revive it, fulfilling the funeral rites in regards to those who have passed away. Again, please adhere to the guidelines set by your local authorities in regards to all of this, but these are general good deeds that if you are able to indulge in you should.

00:36:27--> 00:37:06

Next responding to invitations if you are invited for me in Lima wedding feast and it's from the Sunnah to respond to these invitations. And as long as these occasions and these events do not have things that are happening within them that displays Allah subhanho wa Taala then you have easing the burden of others. This could be done financially, it could be done emotionally, it could be done by giving moral support. So you work towards easing the burden of others, respecting the scholars and the people of knowledge, something that is unfortunately fading away.

00:37:07--> 00:37:51

Who are the scholars who are the people of knowledge they want to MBA, they are the inheritors of the prophets of Han Allah. So it is upon us My dear brothers, my dear sisters do respect the scholars to honor them to treat them with goodness to treat them with respect this from the teachings of the dean that we respect of Allah, that we respect our mushiya that we respect our shares we respect our Allah, our Imams, our teachers. This is from the teachings of the deen then gifting gifts now, this is from the practice of the Prophet and the Sunnah of the prophet to gift others and then loving for the sake of Allah to purely love for the sake of the maker subhanho wa

00:37:51--> 00:38:01

Taala spending on one's family. We spoke about charity. And unfortunately there are some of us who are you know, who like to be called,

00:38:03--> 00:38:17

who like to be very philanthropic. But when it comes to their families, they transform into these Penny pinching Scrooges, and that should not be the case your charity begins from home. So spend on your family

00:38:18--> 00:38:25

providing water to drink. Now I spoke about charity earlier on and under that you have providing water to drink some fuel

00:38:26--> 00:38:29

from the teachings of the prophets. And so so this could be

00:38:30--> 00:38:52

you know, in the form of being a well providing a water solution providing a water connection, a tap, a tubewell water tank, a water cooler, any form of providing water to drink a powerful deed that will keep accruing rewards for you for as long as people benefit from that water.

00:38:53--> 00:39:34

And then we have planting trees and Alhamdulillah. Our team we are involved in food, water and air through our charity projects. So if you're interested in contributing towards our charity projects, I'll have links in the description and and you could always get in touch with us through our social media platforms. So in terms of the clean water project, we go on to help people who are suffering due to water poverty, we help them combat water poverty by providing them water solutions. Then we have empowerment projects through zecca. We have the food project where we feed people a time a time and then we work on air as well. So that's that's kind of the concept of food, water and air. So

00:39:34--> 00:40:00

with water we go on to plant trees and this too has been highlighted by the prophet sallallaahu. Selim, when you plant a tree, when for as long as the humans benefit from it and the animals benefit from it in terms of its shade in terms of its fruits in terms of its provisions, you're going to be accruing rewards so you are giving back to planet earth by planting a tree okay? And on top of that you are accruing rewards as well as panel lights a win win situation so try

00:40:00--> 00:40:22

And do these good deeds, then you have lending to help others if you are in a financial capacity to help someone who is in need of money, then go on to lend and help them. And if you have obtained a loan from someone, then it is upon you to settle the loans without causing inconvenience The one who gave you the money in due time.

00:40:23--> 00:40:34

Then you have concealing the faults of others. You shouldn't go around exposing the faults of others but rather conceal the faults of others looking after the often

00:40:36--> 00:41:11

a powerful and beautiful deed, and then we have marriage panela Now I know a lot of you might have booked up marriage. Yes, marriage is a good deed it is from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So yes, if you're looking to get married, get married in Allah and Nika. hoomin so Nettie The Robber salesianum is the portrait so that marriage is for my son after my brother Benson at the Felisa meanie, the one who turns away from my son now he's not from me. So marriage is from the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam helping others to get married. So let's say you have people who are finding it difficult financially to get married. And if you are able to help them to

00:41:11--> 00:41:24

get married, they do help them get married. On the other hand, you know, to people who seem to be compatible for one another and you come in between put their families in touch and get the families involved and and facilitate the marriage for them, you've helped them

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

get married.

00:41:29--> 00:41:45

Moving on, then you have selected is taharah and this is a powerful deed taught was by the prophet sallallahu where we see goodness before we went chained to something. So for example, you're considering marriage and you perform subtlest ehara this is not just for marriage, some people think that this is just for marriage, but no, it's for

00:41:49--> 00:42:34

decisions in your life, you know, important decisions and just decisions in general before you you know, venture out into something is the heart or stems from higher where you're seeking goodness from Allah subhanho wa Taala before you set out, then you have said that to shook the prostration of gratitude, where in terms of something that makes you happy, let's say you get news that you have passed your examinations. A child is born into the family, you've gotten a promotion, you you basically your application has gone through and you have secured a job sajida to showcase why we fall down in sajida prostrating to Allah subhanho wa Taala in gratitude. And when talking about

00:42:34--> 00:43:01

gratitude, practicing sugar in general practicing gratitude in general, to thank Allah for the numerous boons and blessings that you are enjoying. We are all valuing in an ocean of the mercy and boundaries of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it is upon us to practice gratitude and to render sugar. And along with that, when we go through trying times when we go through hurdles and obstacles we hold on to sovereign, these two wings of a believer shook and Sabra

00:43:03--> 00:43:44

we do not utter blasphemous things against Allah we do not, you know, question the decree of Allah but instead we hold on to Sabra we hold on to patients, like how prophet au ballast that Islam did like how Prophet jacobellis that Islam did, like how proper use of eyes that was limited, like how our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, O Allah did, the prophets of Allah the best of the creation, they were put through so much and they hold on to patience. So let's deduce and glean inspiration from them and hold on to patience, so shook and sobre so as you can see many brothers and sisters, I can go on with this beautiful list of good deeds, but I hope I've listed enough to

00:43:44--> 00:44:06

kind of give you a perspective of how many deeds are actually out there to perform in terms of these seasons of goodness and opportunity. So, we pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala helps us to indulge and perform as many good deeds as possible we pray that Allah multiplies the rewards for us. And we pray that Allah Subhana Allah

00:44:07--> 00:44:21
