We are in Alhamdulillah. Now in the month of Muharram, which here is is 1448 940 400 Allah so 100 We are on par, every 100 people No, I would just want to say a few words regarding this month. First of all, I will say that whatever we learned regarding this month whatever we know about any other month of the Islamic lunar calendar, we must sit down with our children. We must sit down with our children and we must explain to them why Allah our children don't know you ask them when is Christmas they know you ask them what is Halloween they know when you ask them when is Thanksgiving. They know they don't know the Islamic calendar. They don't know the events that took place in the

00:00:35 --> 00:01:19

Islamic calendar. So today insha Allah and his brave hearted I just want to go through this first of all is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said that the best fast after the month of Ramadan is the first of this month, the month of Muharram. And not only that, but he referred to it as the month of Allah subhanho wa Taala sha Allah, Allah Maha ROM. Now you have to understand that when you say the word bait Bait means house. But if you say Baitullah, you add you add the word Allah to it, it becomes a magnified house. If I say the word NACA, it just means any any camel. When Allah says the Quran, now call to law he it becomes a specified camel, it means that this camel is better than

00:01:19 --> 00:02:03

perhaps all the other camels this camel is more worthy of our attention. Likewise, Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to all the months as the as months while Allah subhanho wa Taala prophesied some says that this is not just a month, it is the month of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning that this month deserves our attention more than the other month. Allah says in the Quran in data shul in the life now Sharon fee kita Billa there are 12 months minha arbeiten haram there are four amongst them. There are the other than Hijjah Muharram and Rajab, and many of the Sahaba are the Allahu Anhu Moria of the opinion that out of these four months, not the entire year motto these four sacred months.

00:02:03 --> 00:02:44

The most prestigious of all them is the month of Muharram Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he came to Medina and he saw that they were fasting the Jews, the Jewish community were fasting in this in this month or on this day, the 10th day of Ashura why? Because this is the day that Allah subhanho wa Taala saved Musa usum and Bunny is saw in funfilled own and his army what Rasul Allah says some say that we are more deserving of following Mousavi Islam and to celebrate this and hence we will also fast on the 10th of Muharram. And by the way, when the Prophet son came the first year after hijab, when the person came after first year of hijab, and he saw this he legislated that we

00:02:44 --> 00:03:23

are going too fast on the 10th of Muharram. And then the following year because by then, Ramadan had not been legislated. Ramadan had not been legislated the following year when Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down the data so the Bacara that Furman Shahida, Miko, Mushara, familia, some whoever witnesses Ramadan, then they have to fast Ramadan before Ramadan there was a concession if you can give something you can give us a call, you can give a charity you can exempt yourself from fasting but the following year and that's in the second year after Hijra. Allah subhanho wa Taala required all the Muslims that if you're not traveling and you're not sick, you must fast the martyrdom of on that

00:03:23 --> 00:04:03

is when the the fasting of the 10th day of Muharram became recommended a became a sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Prophet saw some teaches us that if you fast on this day, then the sins of one year previous here are forgiven. And then is also mentioned that towards the end of the life of the prophet Sallallahu ala he was setting them he did mention that next year. If I'm alive, then we will add the ninth to the 10th mean that we will fast not one day, but two days to oppose the practices of the Jewish community. But later on, of course the following year Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam he passed away. But what we learned from all this is that the

00:04:03 --> 00:04:41

month of Muharram is a month of reflection, reflection of what that what we what we learn from the CEDAW first of all, is Allah subhanho wa Taala saved musante Islam, sit down with your children and go through the stories of Musa alayhis salam how to Allah subhanho wa Taala Give victory to Musa Islam. Also we learned from from the Sierra the power center on the Hijra that took place it is 14.1 1444 years since the Hijra of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what happened in the Hijra of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Wallah you so much has been documented on the CEDAW of the Prophet Salam regarding the hijra, the events that took place during the hijra, sit down with

00:04:41 --> 00:04:59

our children and go through that story. And not only that, one of the most important things that we learned from this month is that this is a sacred month, meaning that in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam battles will take place, but in these four months, they would put down all their weapons. There was no fighting at that time. No one was allowed

00:05:00 --> 00:05:39

Now to initiate any kind of battle and anything of that type during these four months, and if they did, it will be considered as a serious violation of these four sacred months. But what we also learn is that Muharram is what is the meaning of Muharram something that Allah has made haram something that Allah has made forbidden something that has been considered and declared as forbidden. So what we learn also from this is that in months like this with this is considered as a sacred month and once like these we put aside our grudges, we put aside our hate will Allah He there's so much hate in communities, people spread lies about each other people spread hate and

00:05:39 --> 00:06:16

animosity against each other. These are months where you put aside all that will lie brother and sisters, you know, if you if you have just been focusing on the last two, three weeks, every single day someone has been dying, every single day someone has been dying. And one week last week, Friday, we had five Jeunesses in Dallas Fort Worth before the last the week before that we had to bury from our with our own hands, brother, Bill and Muhammad. And then after we heard about other people passing away, and you makes you wonder why even on WhatsApp, the most active group right now is usually the Sunday Janaza group. Every single time someone has passed away someone has passed away

00:06:16 --> 00:06:56

will lie when will we wake up and understand life is so short? Well, Allah He life is so short, to carry on these grudges. It does not help to carry on the hatred or animosity towards others will lie it hurts us. It doesn't hurt anyone else perhaps, but it will hurt us. I'm sure you've heard of this example of the professor one time he made all his students carry only has half a glass of water. He made all his students carry half a glass of water. And it's just only half a glass of water. That's all it is. It's not a lot of water, you're not carrying a gallon in your hand, half a glass of water. And the students stood there and they stood there. And after one hour, their hands began to

00:06:56 --> 00:07:38

become tired. After two hours, they had to put it down. That professor who used that example, to teach his students a very valuable lesson that even if it comes down to this much water, don't look at the water. But look at how long you have to carry it how you have to carry in your hands. Likewise, even if it's a small grudge, a small hatred, something in our heart against someone else. If you and I we have to carry it in our heart over and over again 24/7 365 days a year will Allah he will affect us will Allah he will affect us in a Siena Did, did an experiment one time where he had two sheep, two sheep. And right next to that he put a wolf and one the sheep could see the wolf and

00:07:38 --> 00:08:13

the other sheep on this side could not see the wolf, the sheep on this side that was close to the wolf. It kept on looking at the wolf and of course the wolf is being deprived of food. So the wolf kept on looking at the sheep and the sheep next to the wolf died eventually after some time, why? Because out of that fear, but the other sheep because it could not see the wolf it remained alive. Whatever the Cena drew from this conclusion is that when you and I when we have these kinds of things, when we keep on staring at these kinds of things, will Allah He it will affect our hearts will Allah he will affect our lives and we will become weak. So that is why when it comes to these

00:08:13 --> 00:08:50

kinds of months, let it go. Seriously just let it go. The hatred, the animosity, the things are in our hearts against others. If I have a problem, just learn how to drop and leave it if someone has done something wrong to you pick it up in the hereafter Wallah. He does. I've said this before, when we say Maliki Yama Dean, I know there's something called the Day of Judgment, I know that there will be accountability, if not in this dunya in the Hereafter they will be accountability of Allah he just you know carrying it in our heart over and over again. This is why we talk about these kinds of months sacred months, let it go for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala so ask ALLAH SubhanA wa

00:08:50 --> 00:09:22

Taala that whatever lessons that we can learn from the see other problems Salam regarding this month of haram May Allah Subhana Allah give us the fifth and finally finding the most important thing because people have been asking me what is the 10th of Muharram the 10th of Muharram is next week in sha Allah Monday, Monday, August 8, inshallah is a 10th of Muharram. We follow the the calculations method, so it's gonna be Monday, August 8, you can fast either inshallah on Sunday or Monday, Monday or Tuesday in sha Allah does not come Allah Hi assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh buddy,
