as salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine about Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran in data show who they are in the life now Sharon fee kita Billa yo mahalo customer worth you will owe them in her Aruba on haram. Allah says in the Quran that there are 12 months, and out of those 12 months in the year there are four months are considered as sacred months. Three of them come consistently, one after another and one comes separately. That is the cada the Hijjah Muharram and the man that stands all by itself alone is the month of Rajab,

00:01:05--> 00:01:49

these are the four months of the year that are considered as a sacred month of the Islamic lunar calendar. In sha Allah tomorrow we will be having the very first day of the month of Muharram which is the the first day of a new year, the Islamic New Year and Subhanallah first of all, historically speaking, that when Abu Musa Allah shadow the ultra ion in the Khilafah of Amardeep Nakata where the ALLAH and he realized that this was a very big issue, there was no structure in terms of dates they were not able to set dates and as Assam began to grow of course, just like today you and I, we always you know, we plan things out based on the days the dates and so forth, dates our calendar our

00:01:49--> 00:02:30

schedule plays a heavy role in our life. Likewise, Abu Musa Allah shadow you a lot on he realized that because there is no set date and year in time or in put in place he sent this request to Ahmed even a hotdog or the yellow icon that we need to put some structure to this date or we need to put some structure in this matter and on whenever the hotel will the yellow time. After consulting with some of the Sahaba Leola on home. Some of the Sahaba said the less began the calendar from the time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born. Some said that let's begin the calendar from the time he passed away. Some has suggested let's begin when he began his Hijra his migration from Mecca

00:02:30--> 00:03:09

to Medina, let's begin that time and many orlimar they say that the reason why I'm leaving Otago, the alotta and he went with this decision is because this was a new page in Islamic history. This is a time when the Palestine he migrated from Mecca to Medina. And there are so many lessons to be learned from the hijab the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Perhaps we can cover that some other time. But nonetheless, there are so many lessons to be learned. And even today till today, our Islamic Hijri calendar is based on the Hijra of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Secondly, the reason why we start with Muharram because some people said, and some Sahaba suggested that let's

00:03:09--> 00:03:52

start the year with a month of Ramadan. Some sadness started with robiola was some suggested other months based on certain events that took place in those months. And I want him to Hatha Yoga and he decided that not only are we going to start the years from the time the problem he made the hijra, but at the same time haram will be the very first month in the Islamic calendar. Why? Because he said that when people go for hygiene, and they perform hydrogen and they fulfill the rights of hydrogen, according to the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Raja aka Yeoman will add that to Omo, they will return like they are a new born baby, meaning their slate of sins will be

00:03:52--> 00:04:36

absolutely clean. There will be no sin upon them. No minor sin, no major sin, none whatsoever. And Amara Mahato Radi Allahu Anhu he's saying that this is the a new beginning for any Muslim who goes for hajj and they come back, this is a fresh new start. So the very first month that comes after the Hijjah, hence Muharram. That's why Muharram was settled as the first month of the Islamic lunar calendar. Now, from a spiritual point of view, we all learned that this month is called Shadow law Hill Muharram, the month of Allah subhanho wa Taala because of his veneration because of his status, and not only that, but because this is the series of the best and the worst. This is why I chose to

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

talk about this today because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says the best the best fast after the month of Ramadan is the fast of Maha ROM and we all know that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he went to Medina and he saw the Jewish community fasting on that day of fasting on the 10th of Muharram. And when asked, Why do you fast on this particular day, the 10th of Muharram

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

The Jewish community respond to the Prophet saying that this is the day that Allah saved Musa alayhis salam from the from fit own, and his army. And so hence this is a way to for us to remember that day and Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says not not a hobby Musa that we are even more closer to Musa alayhis salam. And therefore, not only did he instruct the Sahaba to fast, by towards the end of his life, he even instructed them that if I am alive the following year, then I will fast one day before one day after, to ensure that we are fasting is not like the facts of the Jewish community. So, we are fasting on the 10th of Muharram. But either we're gonna focus on the ninth, or

00:05:44--> 00:06:24

we're going to focus on the 11th, pairing that up with the 10th. So this is why our alumni have all mentioned that you should try to fast on the ninth or the 10th, or the 10th, or the 11th, if you choose to fast on the 10th. Now one thing I do want to quickly mention is that I've seen this issue coming up. And this is why I'm mentioning this is that based on the time that we are living in Tomorrow is the first day of Muharram. So hence, Saturday will be the 10th of Muharram. And there are a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wherein he says that do not single out Saturdays for fasting and so forth. So I want to assure everyone that this in this situation, this

00:06:24--> 00:07:06

hadith does not necessarily apply, because we're fasting for a particular reason. Now, yes, if you were not fasting throughout the entire week, and then you just so choose to fast on the night, I mean, on the 10th, I'm sorry, on Saturday, then that can become an issue. So keep this in mind is that even though the 10th will be on Saturday, you can still fast on Friday, or Saturday or Friday, on Saturday or Sunday, whatever you choose to. And the reward for fasting on this day, the 10th of Muharram is as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that this is the or the is an explanation of one years of sin. So when we fasten off, ah, it's two years of sins. And when you

00:07:06--> 00:07:46

fast on the on the 10th of Muharram, then it is an expiation of one years of sin. Along with that, of course, there were some other historical events that took place in this month. Namely, for example, the martyrdom of the the of the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And of course, you know, without you know, this is it's absolutely fine. There's nothing wrong to historically just simply mention and talk about the what happened in this month. I feel like at times, people go to two extremes. Now, of course, we find one extreme where people do certain actions on the on that day, you know, in remembrance of the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu

00:07:46--> 00:08:22

alayhi wa sallam and I'm not advocating for that. At the same time, there are some people who say that no, it is absolutely you know, do not even talk about the history and do not talk about these, the events that took place in this month and so forth. And that is also another extreme our deen has taught us to be balanced. And the balanced approach, in my own opinion, and according to many other olema is that there is nothing wrong in talking about the history of what happened. Talk about the history of the 10th of Muharram. This Allah subhanho wa taala, saving Musa alayhis salam from Freetown and his people, and not only that, but what happened to the grandson of the Prophet

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

salallahu. Salam, and you know, some of the lessons, most importantly lessons that we can find from from this incident of Karbala and so forth. So of course, there's nothing wrong in talking about this. At the same time, the most important thing to understand is that this is a very sacred month, in this month, there's a very important day, a very auspicious day that the Prophet SAW last summer he would fast on so we should try to fast on that day of fast with along with our families. And I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that every single month that comes you know, we come across in the Islamic lunar calendar, and whatever events take place, there's nothing wrong with talking about the

00:09:00--> 00:09:29

history. Most importantly, I ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us the ability to learn from those lessons. And finally, we talked about Hijiri calendar once again, Hijra the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam there's so many lessons from his from the beginning of his journey to the end of his journey, so many lessons can be learned. Of course we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give all of us ability to apply those teachings in our life and mutable Allah mean does Aquila hate Saddam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
