Bismillahi r Rahmani r A

00:00:52--> 00:00:56

most nameko wahconah Tada, everyone.

00:01:27--> 00:02:16

All praise and thanks be to Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala who is our Creator sustainer nareesha protector and kiora We ask Allah the Almighty to shower his choices of 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 tiama Oh slaves of Allah. First and foremost, I advise myself and then all of your present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala and to be conscious of Allah subhana wa tada during every single second of our lives, if we wish to attain success in this world, as well as the

00:02:16--> 00:02:22

hereafter. May Allah azza wa jal make us all from the people of taqwa Amin.

00:02:25--> 00:03:07

And secondly, it is incumbent upon all of us to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for the numerous bounties and favors that he iserver gel, our beloved maker has conferred upon us if you try to count these blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If we were to try and enumerate the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala, we would fail miserably to encompass all of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And even if we were to remain in sajida, in prostration, to show gratitude unto our beloved maker our whole lives, it would not suffice for the numerous blessings and favors that he has conferred upon us, and from these blessings and favors many respected elders and brothers in Islam,

00:03:08--> 00:03:51

the biggest or one of the greatest blessings that are lost behind and what Allah has blessed us is that he has made us all from the aroma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the aroma of the best of the best Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and no doubt. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the best of the best, because he was the seal of the prophets. He was the last prophet, and he was the seal of the prophets, and likewise, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the one who will intercede for all of us on the day of Ghana, on a day when we mankind will run to every single Prophet, but each prophet will refer to another prophet, go to this prophet, go to that Prophet,

00:03:51--> 00:04:20

until finally, we will go to our beloved messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he is an alum while he was a lawyer would intercede on behalf of us. Likewise, there are many attributes, there are many praiseworthy qualities that are lost behind him what Allah has mentioned in regard to our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that made him the best of the best and the noblest of all messengers, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:22--> 00:04:59

and also many respected elders and brothers in Islam. It is from the blessings of Allah Subhana Allah that He iserver gel has created seasons of goodness for us. He has created seasons of goodness for us, one season after the other. We enjoyed the month of Ramadan, the beautiful month of Ramadan, and even though it left us at a very rapid pace. Now, another season has come about and they are the blesser days of the hedger. We are in the blesser days of they'll hijack my previous sermon and the one before that too, I touched on the best of days, the days of delivery.

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

In this particular sermon today sermon I would like to touch on the day of arafah Yamada on the day of arafah and most specifically, when is the day of arafah This is the title for today's kotoba. But before we delve into the subject matter of the hotel, I would like to touch on a few of the virtues of the day of our of the day of RFI is from the amazing days of they'll hijack the amazing days have been hijacked, and they are known as the best of days, the best of days in comparison to all of the days they are the best of days. And this we learn this from the teachings of our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, specifically the day of our of is the day in which Allah

00:05:47--> 00:06:02

azza wa jal completed and perfected his religion for us. Our maker he completed and perfected his religion and his favor His bounty upon us as he Azerbaijan states in the Nobel for an

00:06:03--> 00:06:04

Elio

00:06:14--> 00:07:08

aluma commence with a comb Dena comb, it is today that I Allah azza wa jal is stating this I have completed Atmel to the convener of God your religion, what meant to Allah Mati and I have perfected my near ma my bounty my favorite upon you love acaba. This is such a special day, the day of arafah it is a day by which our maker swears an oath upon Allahu Akbar, Allah azza wa jal stating the Noble Quran in surah tolbooth chapter 85 verse number three washa he didn't mesh who was Shaheed you wanna shoot? This is the day that has been witnessed love Akbar, Allah subhana wa tada swears upon the day of arafah. And in regard to fasting, on the day of arafah fasting on the day of arafa for the non

00:07:08--> 00:07:36

pilgrims' for the ones who are not for judge, fasting and the day of alpha is extremely recommended by our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you know the rewards for fasting. The amazing rewards that we can secure by fasting on the day of alpha is in Muslim, where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that for the individual along the lines of these words, that for the individual who fasts on the day of alpha,

00:07:37--> 00:08:25

two years, two whole years of his sins or expiated, are forgiven by Allah subhanho wa Taala. One previous year, a year that has passed by and a year in the future, Allahu Akbar, two years of your sins are completely wiped out, but Allah behind them who are the Allah are forgiven by Allah azza wa jal, but now as for the Hajaj, as for the pilgrims, as for the people who are unhide for them, it is not prescribed. It has not been prescribed too fast on the day of arafa because this is against the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam because he said a long while, and he was seldom did not fast on the day of alpha. Therefore the judge, the pilgrims should refrain from fasting on the

00:08:25--> 00:08:59

day of alpha and it is only applicable upon us non pilgrims who are not on Hajj too fast on that day, and this is from the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah because Allah azza wa jal did not wish to deprive us from the same rewards or similar rewards that the Hajaj are enjoying on the plains of arafa. Therefore, if we too fast on the day of arafa, we secure amazing rewards in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala mela Isaac azza wa jal forgive all of our sins and accept all of us. I mean,

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

it was on the day of arafa that was behind him who took the great covenant, or the great promise from the progeny of Adam alayhis salatu salam from the children of Adam AlLahi salatu salam ala none other than us. Allah azza wa jal asked us LS to be rock pecan, Am I not your Lord? And we all confirm. We all took a covenant by saying called Obara, we said, of course, we said, Yes, it was on the day of arafah. It wasn't the name of the hedger that Allah azza wa jal took this great covenant. Therefore, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, what a great day. What a great covenant that has taken place on the day of October the ninth of the hijab.

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

It is a day of forgiveness. It is a day of forgiveness, and a day to secure freedom from the blazing Inferno of Johanna May Allah subhanahu wa eila save

00:10:00--> 00:10:32

All from the fire of jahannam howdy is in the midst of the FEMA Mohamed Omar rhodiola and Houma states that Allah azza wa jal expresses his pride Allahu Akbar, Allah subhana wa Tada, Allah the Most High. He expresses his pride to His angels at the time of Russia at the time of Russia on the day of arafah, about the people of our alpha, about the people of alpha and he expresses his pride to His angels by saying, Look at my slaves.

00:10:33--> 00:11:01

Look at my slaves who have come disheveled, who have come unkept who have come dusty Allahu Akbar. And this Heidi, this narration has been recorded in the midst of the female mathematic, I said before, and it has been class so Hey, baby mama Alberni urashima Hola. Therefore, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam there are many virtues attached to the the great day of arafah, which is the ninth of the hedger. Now we move on

00:11:02--> 00:11:02

to

00:11:04--> 00:11:09

or in regard to how to determine the day of arafah, as we all know,

00:11:10--> 00:11:38

are the or the calculation of months in accordance to the deen of Islam, according to our Sharia is based on the lunar calendar is based on the lunar calendar, where we are supposed to site the moon, to confirm the beginning and the end of a particular month. And this is in accordance to the teachings of our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is reported to have said su mu outcome a call AlLahi salatu salam su mulero. Yet he will after

00:11:40--> 00:12:11

that you're supposed to fast, you're supposed to fast after citing the moon, and you're supposed to break your fast after citing the moon for in a woman. But if it is a cloudy day perhaps and you cannot witness the moon, you cannot cite the moon, then you're supposed to complete 30 days in that month. You're supposed to complete 30 days, that particular month. But now we have individuals who come up and ask us they come up and they ask us Yeshua

00:12:12--> 00:12:49

Why can't the Muslim Ummah unify? Why can't the Muslim Ummah unify under one thing? Why can't the Muslims all around the world perhaps begin their fasting on the same day? Why can't they celebrate? On the same day? Why can't we all unify? And the one thing Why are we dividing into so many groups? They come up and they pose this question. I hate to break this to them. But this has never been the case, even from the time of the Sahaba with Juan Juan kita Allah, Allah Himeji Marine, this has never been the case.

00:12:50--> 00:13:02

This has never been the case where the whole world celebrates read on the very same day, unless coincidently, we all side the moon all over the place at the same time, which is impossible.

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

Therefore,

00:13:06--> 00:13:48

in accordance the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, look at the Hadith that I just mentioned, we are supposed to witness the moon, and upon that witnessing that would determine the beginning of a particular month, and the ending of a particular man. And likewise, the beginning of Ramadan, or any month for that matter. And also we have individuals coming up with the question. Yeah, Chef, why can we follow Saudi? Why can we follow Saudi Arabia, or say, for example, the day of alpha has been determined in Saudi as today as Friday. So the Hajaj the pilgrims are on the plains of Africa, while we are not fasting the day of alpha, on the other hand, our country the aroma, the

00:13:48--> 00:14:29

scholars in our country have determined that alpha is on Sunday, how can it be so? How can it be so these are the questions they come and they pose? Now the answer to that my dear, respected elders and brothers in Islam is like I said, this has never been the case, even from the time of the Sahaba in one litre, Allah, Allah imaginary, because it is not about following Saudi. It is not about following Saudi, you go and refer to the traditional books of faith, the classical books of faith, you will never have a must Allah or you will never see that the scholars discussing that should we follow Saudi, or should we not follow Saudi, for that matter? We can follow Timbuktu why follow

00:14:29--> 00:14:43

Saudi of all places, there is never a ruling to say that you're supposed to follow Saudi or you're not supposed to follow Saudi rather than must Allah is about it, the hospital Mako Allah, what's the level mattala

00:14:44--> 00:15:00

where all of us unify under one particular moon under the sighting of one moon or else we have different sightings in different localities and different areas. Now look at this narration this took place during the time of this

00:15:00--> 00:15:28

Sahaba with one litre Allah Allah, Masha Marine, and this hadith is recorded in Muslim qure the freed slave of a bus and of the Allahu anhu ma. He was one sent to Damascus. He was once sent to Damascus. He goes to demonstrators on a particular errand. And then what happens they cite the moon for the commencement of the month of Ramadan in Damascus under the reign of Moscow via rhodiola. Juan.

00:15:29--> 00:16:11

Now the moon was cited there on Friday evening. The moon was cited there on Friday evening. Now correct me when they are to demonstrate as he begins fasting because more Avia and the other Sahaba perhaps who are there they all cited the moon in Damascus and they began their fasting because they cited the moon on Friday evening. After some time say after a week or two he comes back to Medina. He comes back to Medina all the way from Damascus he comes back to Medina, even at us around the Allahu anhu. Omar then goes to Korea and then he when he meets Cora he asked to write about the sighting of the moon. What happened in Damascus, correct then went on to narrate to him that we

00:16:11--> 00:16:40

cited the moon on Friday evening. We cited the moon on Friday evening. Therefore we began our fasting on Saturday, even though the alarm went on to inform qure but we on the other hand, the people of Medina, we did not cite the moon on Friday evening. Rather, we cited the moon on Saturday evening and we began our fasting on Sunday on Sunday. Now, Kareem he went on to ask even at best rhodiola one Houma

00:16:42--> 00:17:30

for the Allahumma will not the siting of Monrovia in Damascus will not the siting of Mahabharata and the Sahaba in Damascus suffice for you and the people of Medina, will it not be enough for y'all? Can't y'all follow more Avia in Damascus? Even at das radi Allahu Anima very clearly states. No, we will not because this is not in accordance to the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This is not in accordance to the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, remember that Islam is not restricted to boundaries. Islam is not restricted to borders. Islam is not restricted to countries, but rather Islam is a

00:17:30--> 00:18:19

universal religion that is applicable for every single Muslim around the globe, as well as the fact that Islam is applicable at all times, whether we be in the era of rockets and the internet, or whether we be in the era, ie the stone age where we don't have any technology whatsoever. Now look at that time to write if he had to travel from Damascus, to Medina, it would take him at least about a week to travel all the way from Damascus and reach Medina. So basically the news for the news to travel from Damascus to Medina, it would take about one week. Now the thing that we have today that people call for the unifying of citing the moon is because we have technology at our disposal. It's

00:18:19--> 00:18:35

because the minute the moon is sited in Saudi perhaps the minute the moon is sited in Saudi, we get the information within seconds to Srilanka perhaps or wherever we are in the globe for that matter, because technology has evolved to that extent.

00:18:36--> 00:19:16

But during the time of the Sahaba, during the time of the serafina, soya our pious predecessors, that wasn't the case. say if you look at China and Spain, for that matter, the Muslims in Spain, and the Muslims in China, there is no way that news could travel to them all the way from Spain to China that we have cited the moon in Spain, or for that matter, we have cited the moon in China so that the people of Spain can begin their fasting or in their fasting, or the people of Spain have cited the moon and the people of China can begin their fasting or in their fasting, because it would take about a week or even more from Spain to China, for news to travel from Spain to China, you did not

00:19:16--> 00:19:58

have SMS, you did not have email, you did not have WhatsApp, you did not have Skype, perhaps you did not have the internet to get the message across in a matter of seconds. But rather you had pigeons, you would have to tie your little note on a pigeon on the leg of a pigeon and let the pigeon go. And at times, you're not even sure whether the news has reached the other corner of the earth. Or for that matter, you would have to send out a messenger, a messenger or a town crier who has to go on horseback perhaps or he has to undertake a sea journey which would naturally take days for him to reach from point A to point B. So now coming back to what I said. Islam is a religion that is

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

applicable for all

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

times

00:20:02--> 00:20:08

hypothetical. What if tomorrow, all of the satellites crash?

00:20:09--> 00:20:16

It can happen all man made? What if tomorrow all the satellites crash? And

00:20:17--> 00:20:26

the internet goes down? The whole world blacks out? There, we won't have people staring into their phones anymore. They'll start talking like real human beings.

00:20:27--> 00:21:04

What if the internet crashes? And now what are you going to do? Perhaps for the coming Ramadan, if you call for following the moon of Saudi, for example, which I said has not been established according to the books effect. But then if you consider that there is a majority of Muslims in Saudi, and that they have a fatwa board, perhaps, and they have a board of scholars that we can follow if you call if you call for the following of the Saudi moon, what if the internet crashes tomorrow? How are you going to get information from Saudi to Sri Lanka? So then how are you going to follow then you're going to are you going to then take back your statement and state now it's time

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

to perhaps follow our own moon

00:21:07--> 00:21:25

you can play with the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala as such, because the deen of Allah azza wa jal is applicable for all times in our movements, even if it be that an individual being a jungle, even if he has no access whatsoever to any internet, all he has to do is come out and look for the moon.

00:21:26--> 00:22:06

All he has to do is look for the moon. This is applicable for all of us. And therefore my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, in accordance with the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in accordance with the practice of certain of the Sahaba in one light, Allah Allah image Marine, it is upon us to go look out for our own moon in terms of each locality. Each country perhaps wherever the second part of the earth or a segment of the earth where the rising of the moon is the same, where the rising of the moon is the same, it is the same time then we all in that locality in that country, perhaps we follow one particular sighting that is a sighting of that

00:22:06--> 00:22:50

particular country. Say for example, another way to counter this argument is that if you were to follow the moon of Saudi, then you're also supposed to follow even the sunrise of Saudi, then when they pray for us, we'll fudger over there, then you have to press Roger over here, when they press one October over there, then you have to play Serato over here, when they start there. So for their insomnia and we also have to start also for when they break fast, and we also have to break fast, we have to follow everything. This is not rational, it is not logical, it cannot take place. Because if you're living in the West, then of course, the sun is going to the set earlier than in in locations

00:22:50--> 00:23:30

towards the east. Because at times when the sun is rising at one particular corner of the earth or the other other part of the Earth would be pitch dark up the middle of the night. So each country, each locality to its own moon. This is what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught to us in his narrations sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so then that doesn't actually have to be a great dispute. And when we refer back to the times of our Salah for nazare, we see the day the Sahaba, the one litre Island imagery Marine, all the scholars for that matter. rahima Humala, they didn't actually make this a big issue, it wasn't a big problem, even though there was an if the law and

00:23:30--> 00:24:11

there is an if the law, there is a difference of opinion. There are scholars there are certain scholars who support the view that you have to follow one particular moon, the whole Muslim population all around the globe have to follow one particular sighting, one sighting of the moon wherever the moon is cited, then Muslims around the globe have to follow that. But then there is another majority of scholars who are not in favor of that particular view. And my humble opinion is because I cannot impose on every single one of you my opinion or my right. I can't impose it upon you, you are free to decide what you want to decide. But at the end of the day, my humble opinion,

00:24:11--> 00:24:58

my humble view is that in accordance with what the majority majority of the scholars rahima Humala upon, we follow the siting of our particular country of our particular locality. And it does not matter if the whole judge on the plains of arafa. Today, and we are having arafa on Sunday, it does not matter, because then again, people come about and they say, the chair, don't you think that arafa is based on the fact that the whole judge on the plains of Africa now just because the whole Georgia on the plains of Africa, just because the Hajaj on the plains, literally because they're physically on the plains of Africa that does not make the day of arafah rather the day of the ninth

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

of the hedger

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

The day of alpha is the ninth of del hija and this has also been discussed by the fuqaha by the scholars rahima Humala, whether the day of otherwise considered as McCarney or Zamani, McCarney or Zamani. I hope it does not sound like Greek to all of y'all and I hope it's not skimming over your head, but I'll try to simplify it. Like I said, the day of RFI is not determined, just because the judge are on the plains of arafa. But rather it is determined because it is the ninth of the hedger the narration that I mentioned at the very beginning, we are lost behind him with Allah took the great covenant from

00:25:38--> 00:26:19

the progeny of Adam Allahu salatu salam now that was on the day of arafah. That was on the day of RFI, if I'm not mistaken, the exact word was not man in the narration, the word that was used, were also wise and along with it was seldom is reported to have said that Allah azza wa jal took the covenant. Listen to me carefully took the covenant from the progeny of Adam on the day of arafah. Now, my question to all of y'all is that when we you know, that narration goes along the lines of these words, that Allah azza wa jal took the progeny of Adam from his soul, from the soul of Adam, from the backbone of other marami Salatu was Salam we were all taken out on that day by Allah azza

00:26:19--> 00:27:03

wa jal maker and they are lost behind the hood. Allah asked us to be Rob bequem Am I not your Lord? Now on that day, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is reported to have said in the narration it was on the day of arafah. Now, my question is, we were still in the sole provider Malika salatu salam, were there any judge on the plains of Allah found that day for it to be determined as the day of arafah were there any judge we were all the three of them in the soul barragem, it Serato Salama father. There was there was no one. There wasn't anybody on the plains of our farm that day, but rather the day of arafah was determined by its date the ninth of the hijack the ninth of the hedgehog, and this

00:27:03--> 00:27:35

has also been reported to us by other narrations, where many of the Sahaba one like the island image mine have discussed in regard to this and they have mentioned that the day of alpha is the ninth of del hedger, the day of alpha is the ninth of the hedger, I repeat, so it is not makhani but rather it is Zamani, we consider it to be the ninth of the hijab. And how like I said earlier, you you you calculate the ninth of the hijab, by citing the moon and by nothing other than citing the moon. Now can you calculate?

00:27:36--> 00:28:15

Now we have people having astronomical calculations, this may be respected elders and brothers in Islam is not in accordance to the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And therefore, I do not wish to endorse it or discuss about it because it is not in accordance to the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the direct translation that can be derived from the Hadith that I mentioned at the very beginning. So morally, you have too fast when you see the moon, when you see the moon. Now is it upon every single believer to go out and see the moon from a particular locality? No, the scholars rahima Humala discuss there is a difference of opinion there to where if

00:28:15--> 00:28:53

there is one witness, some scholars say if one rightful, just pious individual word to testify that he saw the moon it would suffice. But the more reliable opinion is that two individuals, two individuals who are just more reliable, who do not lie, who are trustworthy, who are pious, if they witness to the fact that they have seen the moon, by that the Muslims of that locality, of that area of that particular country, can all begin to fast or in their fasting and celebrate the day of read. And likewise, in regard to the calculations of the days of the hedger and the day of arafah.

00:28:55--> 00:29:00

Somebody dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. I mentioned this in the previous

00:29:02--> 00:29:22

Juma sermon too, but I would like to touch on it today also very briefly, in regard to the higher in regard to old here there is still a bit of a confusion amongst the masses in regard to perhaps shortening your hair and trimming your nails in regard to old hay. Yeah. Now a few rulings in regard to that is

00:29:23--> 00:29:59

some people come up one question which of which is frequently asked is that when giving out all the hair does the whole family the whole family do we all have to refrain? Do we all have to refrain from cutting our hair and trimming our nails? Do we all have to refrain from shortening our hair and trimming our nails? The scholars Rahim Allah explained that this is not applicable for the whole family, but rather it is only applicable upon the individual who is giving out and oh the Haier who is giving out was offering a sacrifice. Say for example, the breadwinner of the house. The father is offering on behalf of his wife.

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

wife and his children, and there is no harm if the wife and the children shorten their hair or trim their nails, but the father of the house the breadwinner, he has to refrain from trimming his hair, shortening his hair and cutting his nails, as this has been reported to us from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that the one who wishes to offer a sacrifice along the lines of these words, that the one who wishes to offer a sacrifice, let him not take anything from his hair, and let him not take anything from his nails, ie he should not shorten his hair, nor should he trim his nails. So this is the command from

00:30:39--> 00:31:24

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and all of us believers, we are supposed to strictly adhere to the command of our Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but what if an individual accidentally forget fully cuts his hair or trims his nails? What does he do? Does that mean that he is over here is invalid or has it become nullified? No, the scholars Rahim omala explained that if you did it in voluntarily, if you did it out of forgetfulness, then you are not held accountable, and you're here is valid. And likewise, even if you do it intentionally, even if you do it on purpose, you're here is still valid. But remember, you have gone against the command of Rasulullah,

00:31:24--> 00:31:34

sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, you have gone against the direct command of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, wasallam. And also, the another question that is frequently posed,

is that say in one particular house, if two families are living in one particular house, if two families Say for example, say for example, a man is living with his wife and his children, one of his sons got married, one of his sons got married, and now that particular son is also living in the same house, the son who has got married, gotten married, he and his children are also living in the same house. So basically, we have two families living in the same house. Now the question that is posed, is that if the father of the house, the main the head of the house, if he gives out an oath here, will it suffice for both of the families? Will it suffice for both of the families. Now this

00:32:15--> 00:32:55

My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, because we have two individuals now say for example, if the son is also a breadwinner, if he is also earning money, if he's going out, he's got his own thing running, he is not dependent on his father, if he is not dependent on his father, then the fear of the Father will not suffice for that particular son. Because if he has the means, and the ability to give out and over here on his own, he should give out and Oh, the here separately for his family unit, he will not come under his father, unless than Of course, if he is completely dependent on his father, if he is dependent on his father than if his Father gives out an order here it will

00:32:55--> 00:33:39

suffice for both of the families. Likewise, what if an individual has more than one family, if an individual has more than one family, ie if he has multiple wives, if he has multiple wives, if he has four wives say one wife in one country and another wife in another country, perhaps, or if all of his four wives are in one particular location in four different houses, look at the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had nine families. He sallallahu alayhi wasallam had nine families. And there is no report or no narration to indicate that he sort of arling wassalam gave out nine or nine sacrifices for each of his wives No, he gave

00:33:39--> 00:34:23

out one for all of the families. So likewise, if an individual has two or more wives, if he has two, three or four wives, it is it will suffice. If he gives out one over here, it will suffice if he gives out one over here on behalf of all of his family's, ie all of his wives and his children, as long as they are not independent, perhaps if he has given a child of his out in marriage and now, that particular child is independent, then that child has to give out his own order here and he cannot rely on the order here of his father, because today we have individuals who say that how can it be that one person gives out an order here on behalf of his family, it does not work that way

00:34:23--> 00:34:59

that is a wrong interpretation. Because when we look at the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave out and over here on behalf of all of his families, and we believers we are supposed to follow him salallahu alayhi wasallam and we are supposed to follow his teachings and we stick to that we do not apply our logic we do not apply our brains into the into the masala and try to interpret it in a different way because in that way we might go against the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam May Allah Subhana Allah forgive all of us. I hope everything is upon clarity.

And I advise myself and then all of y'all don't let these 10 days of their hedger go by you in vain in vain, but rather use this amazing season that has been blessed to us by Allah subhanho wa Taala to secure amazing good deeds, amazing rewards so that we will be successful in this world as well as the hereafter. May Allah azza wa jal help us all to make the best out of these 10 days of the hedger and may He the almighty help us all to make the best out of the coming day of arafah. And may Allah azza wa jal forgive all of our sins, and May he accept our good deeds. And just as how he united as here this beautiful rainy afternoon may unite us in the gardens of Jenna with our beloved Master

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
