Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam.
I begin this reminder by praising Allah subhana wa medalla. I asked him the Almighty, the majestic, the Exalted to send his choices of blessings and salutations upon the final messenger, our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was LM, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of Panama.
My dear brothers and sisters, it is upon us to tank Allah subhanho wa Taala excessively for the numerous blessings that He has conferred upon us. And from these blessings is the fact that he has not created all of time equal. He has chosen certain passages of time to be more superior than other passages of time. And this is a huge blessing, a huge boon upon us. So that we may see is these seasons of goodness, these seasons of opportunity to get closer to him, to secure his forgiveness, and to acquire many many rewards because rewards are multiplied during these special seasons.
Now we're just after the month of Ramadan, and we all know that the month of Ramadan is the best of months, a month that we yearn and wait for we will come this month, and our hearts are soft and supple during this month. We are attached to the masajid of Allah subhanho wa Taala we are attached to the words of our Maker subhanho wa Taala we give out excessive charity, we try and do as many good deeds as possible.
And no sooner Ramadan leaves Allah azza wa jal within a few weeks within a month or two, blesses us with another another season of goodness and this season is known as the first 10 days of the hijab. We are approaching the month of the hijab and we are approaching approaching these special days and this reminder is inshallah Hana going to highlight the virtue, the merits of these special dates, that we have a hadith that has been recorded in the Book of Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah, even at best or the Allahu Anhu he narrates that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh come a call Allah to Islam, there are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved Unto Allah subhanho
wa taala, then these 10 days at the 10 days of the hijab,
it was also narrated from anisotropy Allah one that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that there is no deed, there is no deed that is better before Allah subhanho wa Taala or more greatly rewarded than a good deed done in the first 10 days of the hijab. This hadith is recorded by the mama daddy mommy Rahim Allah. So as you can see, the a hadith that I just shared.
And there are others as well indicate that these 10 days are the best 10 days of the entire year with no exception whatsoever. These 10 days are even better than the last 10 days of Ramadan. But I'd like to point out that the last 10 nights of Ramadan are better than the first 10 Nights of the hijab. Let me repeat, so that there is no confusion whatsoever, the first 10 days of the Hijab Day, the first 10 days are better than the last 10 days of the month of Ramadan. Okay, but the last 10 nights of Ramadan are better than the first 10 Nights of the ledger. Why because the last 10 nights they contain they include later through
and we all know the virtue with regards to little coddled and make a subhanho medalla. He says in Surah Takada Laila to Kadri Hi urine mean official that the Night of Power little cutter is better than 1000 months. So in passing, let me quickly mention that in terms of months, the best month is the month of Ramadan. In terms of days throughout the year, the first 10 days or the hedger, the the season that we're going to talk about is the best of days. In terms of nights the last 10 nights of Ramadan are the best nights. If you want to talk about a specific night then led recorder is the best night of the year. If you were to take a week, the best day within a week is Friday and this is
also based on the words
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam where he is reported to have said, a chemical analysis that was learned along the lines of these words Hiroo your mental isolation. So you imagine that the best of days upon which the sun has risen is Friday, harass. Now that we have discussed the passages of time, I'd like to now focus on these 10 days, I'd like to focus I'd like to share a few action items that we can keep ourselves busy with during these special 10 days, the 10 days are rapidly approaching, And subhanAllah we are in a time in an era where time is passing by rapidly very fast. So let us prepare ourselves just as how we prepared for the month of Ramadan. We've heard the
teachings of the pious people of the past, that they would prepare months ahead for such seasons like the month of Ramadan. So similarly, now you have a few weeks prior to this season, the 10 days of the hijab. So let us start preparing ourselves mentally, spiritually and physically, to make the most out of these 10 days plan the 10 days shedule your time so that you make the most out of it and do as many good deeds as possible. So the first action item that I would like to share is fasting. And this act of worship this activity, but it's very close to our routine, because we're just after the month of Ramadan. And after the month of Ramadan, you had the six fasts of show oil. And now
here we are being blessed with another opportunity to bring in fasting into our routine to secure beautiful rewards from Allah subhanho wa taala. So it is sunnah to fast during the first nine days of the ledger. So please make note the 10th day even though we include the 10 day, the 10th day within the 10 days of the ledger, the 10th Day is the day of aid. And it is not permissible. It is actually haram for an individual to fast on the day of aid because this is against the teachings of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and that is why we clearly highlight that the first nine days of the ledger, it is sunnah to fast during these nine days and in sha Allah fasting is a deed that
Allah has chosen for himself
in terms of rewards, so it is a very powerful actor very bad. And by by by indulging and by doing this act of worship, we are no doubt getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and inshallah we will reap rewards in abundance May Allah azza wa jal help us to do so and may accept our fasts. I mean, so the next action item that I would like to share is to read the mead that the allele and the tech cubbies abundantly. So what is the homemade what is the allele? What is tech beer?
That made is to praise Allah subhanho wa Taala Alhamdulillah. That allele is to say La Ilaha illa Allah and the key here is to
glorify Allah azza wa jal by saying Allahu Akbar, now make us subhanho wa Taala he says in Surah Al Hajj
This is the 28th I am Leah Shadowman. Fear Allah whom Moya co small line Heafy a
myeloma T Nyla. Rosa,
behemoth in Atlanta.
So co lo mein, how to are immortal
is the sole maker he says leash hadoo mafia Allah whom were the Kuru Smola so that they may witness mafia benefit benefits for themselves. And mention And remember the Name of Allah Fie, a yummy Maluma unknown days Allama Rosa hoomin behemoth Ilana over what he has provided for them of animals for Kulu minha so each of those animals were utterly molded by itself for clear and feed the ones in despair and for clear the full Quran the poor, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all to do so. So as you can see in this ayah Why is Kuru Smola during the 10 days with a yummy Maluma in these known days old Kuru salah. Remember the name of Allah subhanho wa taala. And then we have a hadith for
example, the one that has been recorded in the Muslim the female Muhammad Abdullah bin Amara, the Allahu Anhu Ummah, he says the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, there are no days that are greater before Allah, or in which good deeds are more beloved to him than these 10 days or either 10 days of the ledger, so recite a great deal
he'll have to he'll recite a great deal of tech beer and recite a great deal of the Hamid during them outcome a call Alice letter salaam the narration goes along the lines of these words.
But unfortunately my dear brothers and sisters, the reading of the tech beer during these 10 days has become an abandoned practice. It is an abandoned sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasalam so it is upon us to revive this sunnah. It is a forgotten sunnah, so it is upon us to revive it. And remember when you revive soon as there have been forgotten that have been abandoned, you come under the Hadith where the Prophet sallallaahu Salam is reported to have said, Whoever revives one of my Sooners that has died out after I have gone will have a reward like that of every single person who does it without that detracting from their reward in the slightest.
So inshallah Tyla. Now that I've mentioned it, let's say if those of you who are watching this video, you start to bring this into practice, then you are going to be rewarded, and I am going to be rewarded as well because I pointed you all towards this practice. And it doesn't end there. Let's say you share this video, within your circles of influence to your family, to your friends, and then they start practicing now because it was through you that this video went to them and they were able to learn about this. So because of that, as they start practicing, practicing, they will be rewarded, you will be rewarded, and I will be rewarded as well. Along with that if you go on to
based on this, educate others there too, you will share in a shine on the reward Inshallah, Dan, this is the beauty of the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And there are so many beautiful ways as you can see, to reap and acquire rewards. But unfortunately, you know, we you know, with the click of a button we can we can earn rewards, but we don't hesitate at all to share things that are of no benefit whatsoever. We like those content will be like those pieces of I don't know things that float around the content, the videos, we go on to share them and some of them are at times of no benefit at all. Some are harmful, some are sinful, may Allah protect us. But on the
other hand when it comes to messages of goodness, when it comes to the messages of the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we tend to become heedless, and we don't give enough importance. May Allah azza wa jal open doors of beneficial knowledge for all of us and may he help us to share messages of goodness may help us to share the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah help us to share the teachings of the Quran I mean,
so reading the text below, this is from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where you read
Allah workabout along with a commercial law, come Kubo
long, long along Kubo along workboat one in
Hill hum and you're saying Allah is the Greatest, you're declaring that there is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah, you're declaring your belief and then you are thanking Allah, you're praising Allah subhanho wa Taala you are rendering gratitude Unto Allah azza wa jal and the more you render gratitude in Shakuntala, as the the nakoma Allah says, the more you render gratitude, I will definitely give you many folds Subhanallah there are layers of emphasis. So the more you render gratitude, you attract, you are attracting abundance, you are attracting more blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah azza wa jal help us all to do so I mean, the last
action item that I'd like to mention for this
video before I conclude, or anyone before the last is to get closer to the words of our Maker subhanaw taala. During the month of the Quran for the month of Ramadan, we developed this relationship with the Quran we will read in the Quran a lot, we would go to the masajid and listen to the Imam reading the Quran during Surah tarawih and we spent a lot of time with the Quran. But perhaps after the month of Ramadan, we got you know, carried away became busy with you know, sheduled and whatnot and maybe we kind of
started to spend less time with the Quran, you can see is this season to revive it to rekindle the spirit to get closer to the Quran to read the Quran to study the Quran. As our maker says in the Noble Quran, affiliate adapt burner Quran Allah Kobina Kafala you know that the devil is the key thing. So Allah says do not ponder, we did not reflect we did not make that borrower the Quran or am Allah Kulu vena cava Aloha, are there locks over their hearts? May Allah unlock our hearts and may Allah protect us from our hearts becoming locked in
yield I mean, so let us you know, initiate this, the reading of the Quran the studying of the Quran the pondering of over the Quran reflecting over the teachings of the Quran May Allah help us to do so may Allah make us from the people of the Quran, I mean
the last action item that I'd like to share is the great so now the great act of a better known as offering your adhere.
Now this is we we should talk about this individually and separately. But I'm going to be mentioning things in a summarized way here because we're just listing out the action items. It is from the Sunnah of Ibrahim Ali salat wa salam and the sunnah of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it is only applicable during these 10 days. And that's another point that I want to mention, you see these 10 days
you know, reasoning, put forth by scholars with regards to why these 10 days are so virtuous, and so full of merit is because when you look, perhaps this is a reason when you look at the pillars of Islam, all of the pillars are incorporated within these 10 days. And this is not possible during any other passage of time.
You are bearing witness that there is no deity of virtue there is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah and that Muhammad Salah al Islam is his messenger during these 10 days, a shadow Allah Allah Allah Allah wa shadow in the Muhammad Rasool you are offering your Salah Okay, that's happening during these 10 days as well. You are what are the pillars of Islam? Karma Salah Ito is a cow Sama, Ramadan Maha jailbait. So, you are giving out your you are able to if you want to give out yours occur during these 10 days, there are people who choose to give it out in Ramadan, and there are those who can choose to give out during the 10 days of the hijab as well. Or even if you as the
cut anniversary does not fall on on the 10 days of the ledger, you can give out a portion of yours Akata during the 10 days of the hijab, perhaps there is a cut eligible cause and you can capitalize on this season and give out your card during the 10 days of Elijah, you are fasting during these 10 days of the hit the hijab as well. And the last act of worship and this is what makes these 10 days special Hajj is not possible during any other passage of time. See, if you compare this with Ramadan and Ramadan yes you are bearing witness that there is no deity worthy of worship. And Allah and Muhammad Ali centimeters messenger you are praying you are you are giving out you as a cat you are
fasting, but you are not able to perform Hajj during the month of Ramadan. So you are only able to fulfill four pillars from the pillars of Islam. But during this season, you are in a position to be able to fulfill all five pillars of the deen SubhanAllah. And along with that,
you are able to fulfill and perform this act of a battle the one that I'm talking about only during this season over here.
And it is something that has certain rulings attached to it.
So that you can perhaps reach out to scholars that you trust and learn on how to fulfill this great act of worship. And it has become so easy today. You yourself need not go out and do it Subhanallah there are organizations that are scholars involved in doing it for you. All you have to do is support their projects and support their causes. And Today things are so easy with the mere click a few buttons, you are able to contribute you're owed here contribute your Corbyn and ensure that this old here this Corbin goes to families in need the ones who are in a lot of difficulty SubhanAllah. So with the help of Allah, we've been doing this for the past few years and this year to insha.
Allah, Allah my team and I as is our practice with the permission of Allah, we will be traveling a day or two prior to the day of aid towards marginalized and vulnerable communities. And we hope to spend the day of Eid with them. And we hope to offer the Corbin and the old here. And if you're willing to support our project support
initiative, you can join hands with us you can contribute to towards our project. And we will take responsibility of offering the code here on your behalf and we will have it distributed to vulnerable and very needy families. You see we've had our food project since the month of Ramadan. We've been distributing food in the form of dry rations in the form of rice in the form of dal to families that are in a lot of difficulty. Because right now we're in the midst of a huge economic crisis. There's a global one going on and there is a big local one going on as well. For those of you have been following the news, so there are many families and a lot of difficulty. So we've been
doing this project since Ramadan and even after Ramadan we've kept it active because the need is so dire there are so many people reach
denote for help. So we've kept it active and we hope to merge it with the old here project so that with the old here and the Corbon, we can add the directions to the adhere to the Corbera and help more families inshallah. Dan, just a few weeks ago, when we want the food project after distributing food to needy families, there were a few families that came forward and met me Subhanallah they had tears in their eyes, they were so full of gratitude, they were so happy that they had received food. And they went on to say that, you know, themselves and their children, they've not had meat, since the last COVID lockdown in our country. Subhanallah this, this moved me to think that there are
families who are struggling to make ends meet. Because at times, when we look at our lives, I think you would agree we're living in a bubble. You see, Allah has blessed us so much. We have a comfortable roof over our heads. We've got tasty food on our tables. Our pantry is stocked up, our ladders are stocked up, we open our refrigerator, freezers Subhanallah we have varieties of meat enough for weeks at a time at times on end. And we have gotten so used to it that we can't have one type of meat you know, we get bored. So we've got this extensive menu set out for the entire week. But perhaps Monday It's meat and Tuesday It's chicken and Wednesday it's fish and tells the shrimp
and Friday it's Mutton Biryani, or whatever it is. They've got this entire menu set out for the whole week. But there are families living close to us Subhanallah not too far away. They've not had meat for such a long time. So don't you think you and I and my dear brothers and sisters that we have a responsibility to fulfill. So this message is out for those of you who are living locally, those of you who are living abroad, you can join hands with us and help the ones who are in a lot of difficulty with this insha Allah Allah that's the whole purpose of the seasons, you know, to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala by giving outside the car by giving out Jesica and helping as many
many people as possible in sha Allah, Allah Allah. So with that, I conclude this reminder. And I look forward to talking to you all soon in sha Allah Allah in another video. So with that, I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala helps us all to make the most out of the season, may he help us to make the most out of every single second of these 10 days of the ledger. Every single minute of these 10 days of the ledger may help us to act upon the action items that was shared in the best of ways with the with the right intentions and he accepted from us and may He reward us many fold. With that I conclude I mean I'm Eva Dawa and it hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen is akmola Hara was salam aleikum wa
rahmatullah wa barakato.
