On equal to loyal Barakatuh

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

Mr. Nahum no human 100 Allah who bid on Amin was thought was someone or sorry he Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Jemaine, oh my god. So I want to just quickly go through some a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and important quotes of our lemma regarding the 10th of Muharram. Because there are many people who are asking questions, first of all is that because there is a again, we find ourselves in a situation where, because of different methodologies, for some, they started the 10th of Muharram. And these are the month of Muharram last week on Monday, so, for them this week, when his day will become the the 10th of Muharram. Epic follows that methodology. So, based on that

00:00:43--> 00:01:19

our calendar is based on that, so, Wednesday is a 10th of Muharram. And then according to some other methods, the day of Thursday will be the 10th of Muharram. So, no matter what what method you pick, and there is no need to make a big deal out of it, you choose one and you go with that, and then inshallah whatever it is Allah subhanaw taala understands the intention, first of all, is that it was the nature of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that many people are not aware of this, that before even the Prophet it is some made hatred to Medina, the prophet it some would fast on the 10th of Muharram. And many books even write that the Quraysh would also fast on the 10th of

00:01:19--> 00:01:55

Muharram. The Jews in Medina were already fasting on the 10th of Muharram. And when the property is on migrated, and he saw that they were fasting, and when he inquired the story that we all aware of their properties, Saddam said that we are more closer to Musa we follow the legacy of Mussolini, some even more, we read more about him, we are more closer to him. And therefore we are also going too fast on this date. There are many a hadith for example, the hadith of Ibn Abbas, or the Allah on Houma, where the prophet said, Allah who it was sent him, he talks about the importance of fasting on this day. And not only that, but he says that if there was one day that the prodigal son was very

00:01:55--> 00:02:36

keen on fasting, after the after Ramadan, it was a 10th of Muharram. Because going back to the history, that Muslims would fast, very religious, very religiously on the 10th of Muharram. But when fasting in Ramadan became mandated, and it was an obligation from Allah subhanho wa taala, than fasting on the 10th became a enough of a became an optional fast. So that's why it was a very big practice. And the Prophet it is son was very keen on that. And not only that, but we also find the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Salem that he refers to the month of Muharram as sha Allah Hill Muharram This is the month of Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no other month in the Islamic lunar calendar,

00:02:36--> 00:03:16

the Allah the Prophet, it is some says that Allah refers to this month as his month, the month of Muharram is that month. So that's why there is some sacredness there is some virtue to this month. Now of course fasting on this day. What we learned from our from the Prophet SAW Selim number one is that he mentioned that if I'm alive next year, I will face an additional day to oppose the practices of the Jewish community. And the automa have mentioned from this is that you can fast one day before a one day after, so it will be your first either on Tuesday or Wednesday, or Wednesday and Thursday, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. And many of them I have also mentioned in fact,

00:03:16--> 00:03:57

checklist stop Imitate me or Rahmatullah. YALI is also of the opinion that if a person only fasces on the 10th of Muharram, on the day of Ashura, then there is no explanation there is no penalty there is no sin. However, he does also mention that this goes against the spirit of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but there is no harm done if that is done. So this is why I'm saying that if you cannot fast two days that at least pass on that day, but it is better It is awesome to fast on the ninth and 10th or the 10th or 11 Now also, some people have asked that when it comes to like a ineffably fast and optional fast, like we find in the nature of the problems Salam, he will

00:03:57--> 00:04:40

come home he was asked to Aisha Radi Allahu Allah, is there anything to eat? Oh Aisha, she will say Yara Sula, there is nothing to eat, and this was usually in the afternoon time, and then he will say that in the saw him I am fasting. So the orlimar have also so people have asked this question that what if on the 10th of Muharram, on the day of Ashura, can I wait for a roughly fast can I wait all the way to the time of Zoa and then make my intention and majority of the orlimar they say that because this is a very specific fast, there is a special reward for fasting on this day. That's why the intention should be made the night before the attention should be made the night before. Now,

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

what is the reward too fast on this day, the reward is that the sins of the previous year are forgiven. That is a reward of this day now very beautifully if you think about it, the for the fuggle of this OMA over all the other Omers is also highlighted in this virtue, how so think about it.

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

When we talk about Ashura, when we talk about the 10th of Muharram, we're talking about Musa alayhis salam, right Musa you some and but he saw you being saved, this is Musa you some on the other hand you find the Day of Arafah The Day of Arafah is associated with who the OMA of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and for the OMA or the problem someone you face on Arafah how many years of sins forgiven to for the for the day of Muharram only one, it shows that the that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has given fallen to this OMA over all the other Omers. So this is why this is a day that we should fast try to make it a point to fast. Now last thing I will say about this is that there are some a

00:05:40--> 00:06:21

hadith of course about this, some even automat have written that this is the day that where the ship of no other Islam was able to find refuge in near Mount Judy. And many of them have written other things about this. In addition to that we find in Albay harpy that a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is without a doubt it is controversial. And not only that, but many orlimar have written, you know, documents and treatises about this, that whether it is authentic hadith, it is a live Hadith and so forth. But the hadith is that we find in lb happy that anyone who gives immense amount of sadaqa or who feeds their family, on the 10th of Muharram. Allah Azza Baraka

00:06:21--> 00:06:59

in their wealth and Allah Subhana Allah will bless them immensely. Now, of course, as I said, I don't want to get into all the different reasons why it is considered as the wife or not considered life, but many other scholars such as ethnicity and and many others such as Ibn Rajab Alhambra Rahmatullah LA, he has written in his book lotta evil maarif that this was the nature and the practice of many scholars of the past. And the scholars, they say, they themselves, they say that we would practice this and we saw the benefits of it. So however you want to take Inshallah, that's up to you. But this is something that's also mentioned in the, the subject of the 10th of Muharram. So

00:06:59--> 00:07:35

I just want to quickly just go through these things in sha Allah, I ask Allah subhanho, wa taala, to whatever we do on that day, make sure you try to focus on that day, try to be with your family also in sha Allah, and not only that, but share with your family. Why is this day such a blessed day, teach your children and educate them about this in sha Allah, I ask Allah subhana wa Tada to bless us with many other blessings. I mean, noble Allah mean, and also I will say that please, whether it's you know, these days and so forth, please keep our please keep Afghanistan in the situation of honesty in your day was, of course it's so hurtful, that every single time you turn around, there's

00:07:35--> 00:07:58

something going on in some Muslim country, it will lie it kills my heart every single time. There's something that is going on. There is chaos there is going on in every single Muslim country right now of oneness and the most latest one so please keep them in your DUA. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bring peace and amen to that land and may Allah subhanho wa Taala drive away the wrong doors I mean, noble Allah mean desert Kamala Haider Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
