all praise and thanks to Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala who is our Creator, sustain and nourish, protect and cure. We ask Allah the Almighty to shower his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved must 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

00:02:41--> 00:03:31

our children of Adam. First and foremost I admonish myself and then all of your present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to fear Allah subhana wa tada and to be conscious of Allah Subhana. Allah during every single second of our lives if we wish to attain success in this world, as well as the hereafter as Allah azza wa jal himself states in the noble for iron in mustafina franza that indeed for the people of taqwa for the moutoku is Mufasa with tree success in this world as well as the hereafter. May Allah azza wa jal make us all from the people of taqwa mighty, respected elders and brothers in Islam. Secondly, it is incumbent upon us upon all of us is to thank

00:03:31--> 00:04:02

us behind and to thank our beloved and our powerful maker for the numerous bounties and favors that he Azerbaijan has conferred upon us, Allahu Akbar, if you and I if we were to try and enumerate those blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If we were to try and count those blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala, we would fail miserably to encompass all of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Once again, he states in the noble for an

00:04:07--> 00:04:23

suha that if you were to try and enumerate the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala if you were to try and count the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala a lot of suha you will not be able to encompass all of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

Imam Rahim Allah he reports from one of the cellphone of soil and one of our highest criticisms is that if you wish to try and understand the value of the blessings of philosophy behind them, what the Islah or identify the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala or try to understand the magnitude of the blessings of Allah subhana wa Taala just close your eyes for a few seconds. Close your eyes for a few seconds. What happens the minute you close your eyes, everything around you goes black, everything around you becomes dark and then you realize and you

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

Stand the value of the eyesight that are lost behind and what Allah has blessed each and every one of us. This is just one aspect. When we look at our lives we are valuing in the notion of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala Our lives are permeated in the mercy of Allah subhanahu wa taala saturated with the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala every single aspect of our lives is completely engulfed in the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah May Allah azza wa jal help us all to show more gratitude to our powerful maker. I mean,

00:05:37--> 00:05:48

my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, we being the oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we are indeed a blessed and fortunate nation.

00:05:49--> 00:06:21

That is one of the greatest blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he chose us to be from the oma have such a great prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah azza wa jal, a powerful maker, he created all of his creation, he created all of his creation, and then he attached words you he attached, virtue and superiority to some of his creation over others. Allah subhanho wa Taala stated the Noble Quran

00:06:28--> 00:07:09

that your Lord, he creates what He wills what he wishes, why, and he chose us and he chooses what He wills and what he desires, Allah azza wa jal, he created the heavens, Allah subhanho wa Taala he created the heavens and gave virtue to the seventh heaven, alas, behind him with Allah gave superiority and virtue to the seventh heaven, due to the proximity of that heaven to the Arusha philosophy behind him what Allah to the throne of Allah azza wa jal, that very throne that Allah subhanho wa Taala ascended upon in a manner that befits His Majesty and His glory, Kamala will be shut down he will Jalali

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

Allah subhana wa tada created all of the melodica he created all of the angels Allahu Akbar, so many number so many angels and allow us to behind the hora de Allah gave virtue to gibreel alayhi salatu wa salam, O Allah subhanho wa Taala gave virtue to Mika il Allah His salat wa salam, O Allah azza wa jal gave virtue to Israel afield Allah His Salatu Salam gibril Allah His Salatu was Salam was made Ark Angel, the greatest of all angels, he was given the responsibility of delivering wahi divine revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala To the Messengers alayhi wa Salatu was Salam meeka in Allah His salatu wa sallam was given superiority and virtue by the fact that Allah azza wa jal entrusted

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

him with the reins and provisions of his Rafi Lala, his salatu salam was given the responsibility of blowing the trumpet, and according to the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is Rafi alayhi salatu salam has already placed the trumpet on his lips, and he is waiting for the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala to blow that trumpet to signify the commencement of the day of Yama May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us all on that day. I mean,

00:08:33--> 00:08:44

Allah azza wa jal created the Jenna created the gardens of Paradise and he azzawajal he gave superiority he attached towards you to genital fear those

00:08:45--> 00:09:38

of us behind the hood Allah created mankind created all of us from other Marlin is Salatu was Salam until the last man to be created. And Allah subhanho wa Taala attached to word you gave superiority to the MBR and the Rasul Allah hemos Salatu was salam to the Prophet alayhi wa Salatu was Salam. From the prophets, Allah azza wa jal attached towards you and gave superiority to five special prophets who are known as kulula. As they are known as oola, hasm, five special prophets they are new alayhi salatu was Salam. Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. Musa alayhi salatu was salam, Isa Alayhi salat wa salam, and our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and from the una

00:09:38--> 00:09:48

azim from these five special prophets, Allah azza wa jal gave virtue attached superiority to two of them by making them his khaleel.

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

Bye by making them his special friends. Who are they? Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam and our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:00--> 00:10:47

From those two great profits from those two great friends of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah azza wa jal made our beloved master Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the greatest prophet of them all. He made that he made him the noblest of all creation, Allahu Akbar, and my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, Allah azza wa jal favored all of us by making us from the nation of that great prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, just imagine how thankful we must be unto Allah subhanahu wa Island, how much of gratitude to show unto a loss of the hand in hand with Allah look at the bounties and favors Allah azza wa jal has conferred upon us moving on many respected elders

00:10:47--> 00:11:21

and brothers in Islam, once again from the bounties in the favors of Allah azza wa jal is that Allah subhana wa tada has not created all of time equal know, Allah subhanho wa Taala has not created all of time equal Rather, he as Virgil has given superiority to some days over other days. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given superiority to some nights over other nights last behind the hood Allah has given superiority to some months over other months have a

00:11:23--> 00:11:33

look at this narration where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said Hiroo Yeoman, Allah Allah He shampoo Yama, Juma Fie Holika Philippa Adam, Wolfie,

00:11:34--> 00:12:09

Wolfie Oakley Jimena aka McCall alayhi salatu salam, that the best of days upon which the sun has risen the best of days is the day that you and I were seated in Friday is Friday, Yeoman Juma. It was on this day that Adam alayhis Salatu was Salam was created our father or the mother who Salatu was Salam was created on a Friday. And it was on this day on Friday the other Marlene who Sarah Sarah was admitted entry into Jenna and likewise many respected elders and brothers in Islam. It was on a Friday that are the Milan who salat wa salam was taken out of Jenna and sent to this earth.

00:12:11--> 00:12:24

My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. When we look at days in general, when we look at days in general throughout the year, according to the words of our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:12:25--> 00:13:14

in Buhari, even Abbas rhodiola one who narrates the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, there are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala than these 10 days than these 10 days, ie the first 10 days of will hedger law October, the best of days, we are rapidly headed towards those days media respected elders and brothers in Islam. And that is why I thought it all the more appropriate to use this sermon to remind yourself of the value of the virtue of the season that is coming up these amazing 10 days that we must all use to secure great deeds, amazing good deeds, may Allah subhanahu wa taala help us all to do that. going

00:13:14--> 00:13:48

on with the Heidi. The minute Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about the amazing 10 days of the hedger, the Sahaba, driven by Allah Allah Himeji mine they asked hirasawa yaroslava not even jihad, doing good deeds in these 10 days is so beloved unto Avast behind and what Allah that no other deed is, you cannot bring any other deed in comparison to it not even jihad, not even fighting for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa tada Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went on to say not even jihad,

00:13:49--> 00:14:36

not even jihad, and then also realize that a lot while he was adamant on to say, not even jihad, except when a man except when a man goes out himself with all of his wealth, except when a man goes out for Jihad himself with all of his wealth, and he does not come back with anything, ie his wealth is all also expended in the part of Allah subhanho wa Taala and he also ends up being martyred in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He becomes a Shaheed except for that individual. In general when you talk about jihad, the good deeds that are performed in the first 10 days of the hedger carry more weight in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala than even jihad in general, except for

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

this exception that also vice versa mentioned scholars Rahim Allah, they go on to explain that in general when you take a Mujahid a person who goes out for the sake of Allah behind him with Allah to fight for the sake of philosophy behind them with Allah in general, he does not take all of his wealth and go, what he would do is he would keep something remaining something behind for his family.

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

Or he would go out as a fighter someone else would spend on him. It is very rare that a Mujahideen would go out taking all of his wealth, leaving nothing behind for his family, or as he would leave behind a portion for his family, and he would take another portion for his expenditure. It is very rare that a person who fights for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala would take all of his wealth and go out because if an individual were to do that, his virtue is on another level. And that is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam exempted that individual in this particular Heidi, a person who goes out in the path of Allah subhana wa tada with all of his wealth, and he does not come back

00:15:42--> 00:16:05

with anything, ie he does not come back because he was martyred in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And all of his wealth was spent in the path of Allah Subhana Allah Allahu Akbar. So my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, when you talk about days in general, the first 10 days of the hijab are the best of days the best of days, and that is the title for today's photo but the best of days

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

talking about days in general, the first 10 days of the hijab the best of days. Scholars Rahim Allah go on to say that they are so virtuous, that they are even better than the days of Ramadan.

00:16:21--> 00:17:06

The first 10 days of the hijab are even better than the days of Ramadan, except for the fact that the not the nights of the last 10 days of Ramadan are better. We're talking about days we're talking about days, days in general first 10 days of the hijackers are extremely virtuous. They are the best of days, talking about nights the last 10 nights. The last 10 nights of Ramadan are the best of nights because those last 10 nights contain the night of power. The Night of Decree Laila to Cairo min Elisha a night that is better than 1000 months and that is why scholars Rahim Allah explained that the last 10 nights of Ramadan are the best of nights. The first 10 days of their feature are

00:17:06--> 00:17:35

the best of days. And when you talk about month, the month of Ramadan is the best of months Allahu Akbar. I hope it is clear that best of month is the month of Ramadan, the best of days is the first 10 days of the hijab that we are headed to in another few days. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all the opportunity to make best use of these 10 days that are headed towards us the first 10 days of the hijab, and then when he talks about nights the last 10 nights of Ramadan are the best nights ever. Allah

00:17:37--> 00:17:48

imambara ha jealous Kalani Rahim Allah Wa, he explains as to in regard to one of the wisdoms behind the first 10 days of the hijab being the best of days.

00:17:49--> 00:18:38

And not the last 10 days of Ramadan is because the first 10 days of the first 10 days of the hijab encompassed for great deals of occupied for great deeds, Salah prayer xhaka, giving out zeca sia you can fast and also one more deed hedge hedge is also encompassed in the first 10 days of the hedger but when you talk about the last 10 days of Ramadan, yes you can pray Salah you can give out your Sokka you are fasting Of course Yeah, but then know how much can you perform Hajj in Ramadan, you can perform Hajj in Ramadan, you can perform Hajj in Ramadan and that is why the scholars Rahim Allah explained that that is why so much of virtue has been attached the first 10 days of the hedger

00:18:39--> 00:19:03

because you can fulfill sala zakka siyam and Hajj to in the first 10 days of the hijab. These great deeds can be accomplished in the first 10 days of their hijab. And this is why the first 10 days of the hijab has been given more virtue and superiority even more than the last 10 days of Ramadan. milazzo behind him with the ALLAH forgive our sins and opened the doors of goodness for us.

00:19:04--> 00:19:12

And also in the last 10 days My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam comes about an amazing day and that is your alpha. It is

00:19:14--> 00:19:58

amazing the ninth day from those 10 days the ninth day yo ma arafa it is the day of arafah there are so many virtues attached to this particular day. One is that if an individual fasts and Yama arafa if an individual who is not a pilgrim, who has not gone for Hajj, a nun pilgrim, who is at his who is residing in his vicinity, he has not gone for Hajj, a non pilgrim if he fasts the day of arafa. According to the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his sins will be expiated for two years, the previous year and the coming year Allahu Akbar, if you fast on the day of arafah the sins of your previous year and the coming year will be expiated according to the words of Rasulullah

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

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

This ayah that I decided in the beginning, Aloma Kemal Tula comm Deena como el mundo la comunidad de la de toda cumulus la Medina, the day upon which Allah subhana wa Taala completed his been completed his Deen was the day of arafah. It was on this day that this great IR came down last October.

00:20:20--> 00:20:49

My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, it is upon us to seize this opportunity. It is from the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah azza wa jal has given us such amazing seasons, to secure amazing deeds, it is upon us not to not to lose track of these seasons, but rather to seize the opportunity that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us with securing great rewards May Allah behind them with Allah help us all to do so. Now a question that arises?

00:20:51--> 00:21:26

Are we to follow the law of Saudi, or Avi to follow the out of our local country? This is a question that pops up at times, many respected elders and brothers in Islam. I cannot delve into the topic, but I'll give you a brief outline. It is a matter where there is a difference of opinion in regard to it amongst the scholars, Rahim Allah. But the more favorable opinion, or the most stronger opinion is that you follow the moon of your own country, you follow the moon of your own country, you do not go to follow an international moon. I'll try to explain the reason being

00:21:27--> 00:22:09

primarily, as follows Rahim Allah explained, when you look at the globe, when you look at the globe, there's always a difference in terms of the moon in the sun, there's always a difference. If you were to follow an international moon, then what about and if you were in, say, for example, in Ramadan, if you were to follow an international moon, say if you were to follow the moon of Saudi, if you were to follow the moon of Saudi, then as we all know, the sun rises earlier in the eastern regions of the world. And then later on in the western regions, am I right? It rises earlier in the eastern regions, and then in the western regions. So the minute the sun rises somewhere in the East

00:22:09--> 00:22:44

in the world, then we are in the West, we must stop eating. If that's the case, we must stop eating because we are following an international moon and an international sun. But it does not work that way. Because it will be still it will still be night for us. While somewhere in some part of the world. The sun may have risen and they would have stopped eating their soul food would have ended but we can still eat because it is night for us. And according to the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you fast after seeing your moon, the salicylate cinemas report what I've said in the narration goes along the lines of these words, you fast when you see your moon when you see the

00:22:44--> 00:22:58

moon and then you break your fast or you start fasting when you see the moon you yourself in other words, as well as Rahim Allah explain your locality, your area, your country, your must see the moon.

00:22:59--> 00:23:41

And then again, let me put a stronger point forward. Are the Islam is the dean for all times is the dean for all times, ancient times modern times at the peak of technology, it doesn't matter. Islam is for all times. Let me ask you the question. What if suddenly, tomorrow? What if suddenly, tomorrow all the satellites were to crash? What if all the satellites were to crash? All mobile communication was to go, Doc? What if you cannot email one another anymore WhatsApp one another anymore? If you have to go back to the olden days? What if planes stopped flying? Suddenly it could happen? It could happen. And then what do you do? How will you find out whether the moon has been

00:23:41--> 00:23:57

cited in Saudi or not? It would take you three, four days or perhaps months for the news to come from Saudi for you to determine that the moon has been cited then what do you do at that point? If you follow your own moon, there is no problem. And this is what took place in the time of the Sahaba.

00:23:58--> 00:24:38

Mine, they did not have email, they did not have fast modes of communication to spread the news in seconds at the moon has been cited in this country. So you will also must follow the same moon No. They used to follow their own moon, you cite your moon and you follow. So now coming back to the day of arafah some people come up with the question. Oh, how can we use when How can we fast? How can we determine that this is the day of arafah when the pilgrims are not on the day of arafah? Or how can we think that this is the day of eat while the pilgrim Zion arafa It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter because there is an offer for them because they have cited the moon there. But for us it is

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

not that they have RFI we have not if our moon does or does not collaborate, and our days really doesn't matter. We follow our own moon. We follow our own moon we don't follow an international moon. This is the opinion this is a strong opinion that has been favored by the majority of the scholars the him of whom Allah May Allah subhanahu wa taala open the doors of under

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

Standing and goodness for us. Therefore, you follow the opinion the siting of your own country and determine the day of arafa by that and determine the day of eat by that so that there will be no confusion whatsoever. May Allah subhanahu wa either forgive all of our sins may be respected elders and brothers in Islam, after understanding the value of these 10 days, the virtue of these 10 days and after touching on the radius of Heidi to talk about the virtue of these 10 days, each and every one of us we need to question ourselves, we need to question ourselves, we claim that we love our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we claim that we love Rasulullah sallallahu

00:25:41--> 00:26:24

alayhi wasallam. If we truly love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best way to manifest that love that you have for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is by acting upon the words of his sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If he says that there is no deed, more beloved unto Allah subhanho wa Taala other than the deeds on those 10 days, then it is upon us to strive hard to secure good deeds to do as much as possible in terms of good deeds. Perhaps the month of Ramadan came about, we established a beautiful link or a relationship with the Noble Quran. Perhaps we completed one whole Quran in the month of Ramadan, but now it is about one or two months after Ramadan and we can't

00:26:24--> 00:27:07

remember the last time we opened the noble Koran, we can't remember the last time we opened up the Quran. Now let us take let us take hold of this opportunity let us see is this opportunity of these amazing 10 days and let us at least intend let me Resign at least three Azhar from the Quran every single day. rounding it up to 30 for the whole 10 days let me finish one hole for an in these amazing 10 days because the rewards are great. The rewards are amazing. Let me pray mo let me give out more sadaqa let me give out more charity let me fast let me fast you fast on the day of arafah two years of your sins will be expiated the previous year and the coming year. If we love Rasulullah

00:27:07--> 00:27:24

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is what we will be doing my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. We will strive to follow his teachings we will strive to follow his lifestyle we will strive to follow his Sunnah and we will strive to follow His commandments. So in the wahala he was saying

00:27:25--> 00:28:02

if you know that giving out sadaqa is such a great deed that has given out sadhaka as much as possible in these 10 days following the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam all of y'all who are within this area y'all have an amazing opportunity. This mustard is being renovated and they need funds for to complete the renovation, you know of the Heidi's once again because we love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his reporter said along the lines of these words, that if you build a house or help to build a house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. along the lines of these words, Allah azza wa jal will build a house for you in general law,

00:28:04--> 00:28:27

a house for you in general. So let us dig deep into our pockets Let us help the renovation of this message and other massage throughout the country that has helped poor families. Perhaps we have three meals on our tables and there are some families who are starving, it has helped them only intending the sheer pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:28:28--> 00:28:30

And my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam,

00:28:32--> 00:29:21

doing all of those great deeds, I wish to highlight on one more point, it has used these 10 days or rather, it has used the coming season, to work on ourselves, to work on ourselves spiritually. Let us purify our hearts, because there is no point in doing all of these good deeds. Why is our hearts are corrupt? Why is our hearts evil? And why is we have got all kinds of evil qualities in our hearts, such as jealousy, anger, hatred, malaise, at times we feel jealous towards another person, we envy another person. This is not from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it is an extremely evil quality to bring about in your hearts. It's a self destructive quality, that

00:29:21--> 00:29:31

quality will destroy you completely. We need to work on our hearts. We need to work on purifying our hearts so that we only think good of others.

00:29:32--> 00:29:59

We think good of others. We don't feel jealousy towards another person. We do not envy another person. There needn't be any professional jealousy in our working areas where we feel jealousy towards another person. We envy another person we don't like another person growing up, we want him to crash and at times the minute misfortune hits him, the minute a trial or a calamity hits him we are happy Allahu Akbar. Just imagine how even is that? How even to be happy or to rejoice?

00:30:00--> 00:30:35

At the misfortune of an individual, how can that be in accordance with the teachings of our pure Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how can it be according according to the teachings of him salallahu alayhi wasallam. So let us purify our hearts. Let us work on our hearts. Let us get rid of purge our hearts of all of those evil feelings, and let us fill our hearts with goodness, because a good heart, a light heart full of goodness will fly to genda my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. Let me give you an amazing incident that took place during the time of this little boy said Allahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:30:36--> 00:31:14

and a separate Mr. Lee Claudia long winded anhu reposted once Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was seated with the Sahaba at one litre Allah Allah He mentioned my Allah, what an amazing opportunity to sit with her sort of why he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they were all seated, and then suddenly, a man enters the masjid. Now just before that man entered Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the narration goes along the lines of these words. He said to the Sahaba read one vitae, Allah Allah him he married, the man who will enter now is a person from the people of Jenna law. The one who enters the masjid now is from the dwellers of gender is from the people of gender,

00:31:15--> 00:31:38

the Sahaba that one by the Allah Allah which mine was amazed. This is a confirmation given by an individual Why am I anti colonial haha Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he does not speak out of his own desires in who are in law. What do you have? It is divine revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is confirming that this individual is from the people of Jenna

00:31:40--> 00:32:23

Allahu Akbar. They were so eager to see who is this fortunate individual. They were looking at the dough of domestic and suddenly a man enters domestic demand from the answer. A simple man. He enters domestic. He has got his slippers under his arm, and he has just taken ablution water is dripping from his beard law. He enters domestic the next day Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the same thing the man who will enter the masjid now is from the people of gender. They were all looking the same man enters in the same fashion having the slippers under his arm water dripping from his beard after evolution. Third day this would have liked him again says the man who enters now is from

00:32:23--> 00:33:07

the people have come along. Again they look same man same fashion slippers under his arm and water dripping from his beard. And the law. He asked he could not take it anymore. He just wanted to know what is what is the special deed that this Sahabi wrote a long line who is doing to secure agenda and that too from the from the tongue of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he has gotten confirmation of gender in this dunya itself. What is the special deed he is doing? I want to know it so that I can bring it into my life to Allahu Akbar, Abdullah even I'm gonna ask for the last one who goes to this habit that the long line who and requests to stay at his house for a few days,

00:33:07--> 00:33:32

that's a habit of the long line who agrees he gives his consent. And now I've divided the long line who stays in the house of that Sahabi observing very carefully because there's so how about it long wait a minute, amazing students. They were very observant. They wanted to study they wanted to know what is the special D that he is especially Abdullah the Allahu he wanted to know what is he doing so special? So he stays the first night.

00:33:34--> 00:34:11

He sees that this man doesn't do anything great. He thought he might be in prayer the whole night. Or he may be reciting the Quran the whole night. But surprisingly this individual who had been guaranteed Jenna did not do anything special. He did not do anything special. He thought okay, maybe let night Come and then he may get up and start his night. His prayer is nocturnal prayer. He wakes up in the night. He is up waiting to see what this individual will do. This man was nicely sleeping each time he turned to his left he used to praise Allah subhanho wa Taala when he turned to the other side of the bed, he used to praise us to make Vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is

00:34:11--> 00:34:50

about it. He never got up in the middle of the night. rather he got up at his usual time before Salatu departure for his tahajjud prayers. He was not a person praying the whole night. Then the Sahaba Abdullah Delano thought okay, let the next day come. I'm sure he must be fasting throughout the day. The next day he came he did not fast. He did not fast. He had his usual meals he used to go to the masjid come back three days went past Abdullah the long line who was observing this a hobby but he did not notice anything special or anything extraordinary. until after the three days finally he goes up to him and says urogen I came to your house and he tells him the whole story. This is the

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

reason behind me coming and staying in your house because for three consecutive days Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kept on saying that you are from the people of Jenna that you are from the people

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

agenda. Now I want to know what is this special deed hidden deed that you are doing to secure agenda from the words of the supervisor, Allahu Allah. You said, That man thought for a while, and then he informed. The other one. Yeah, Abdullah, I don't know of any great deed that I do is this is my daily timetable. This is how I am every single day. I don't know of any great deed that I do. at the bar, the last one was surprised. But then again, he cannot get any more information, he leaves the man and starts walking out. Then the man calls him again, you're up the law, he calls him back. And then he says, I may not do any great good deed. But then there is one thing that I strictly adhere

00:35:42--> 00:36:28

to. Every night before I sleep, I take account of myself in such a way that I keep my heart pure. I have no ill feeling towards anybody. I do not have a jealousy towards anyone. My heart is pure, I think only good of every single person a law of the law, the law, one who then smiles and then says, This is the great deed that you are doing that we are unable to do something along the lines of those words. But what he meant was is such a great deed that not everyone can fulfill this deed. It is not like staying up the whole night in prayer, keeping your heart pure, not thinking evil of anyone. My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. You don't have to move mountains in terms of

00:36:28--> 00:37:08
