Mr. lo han or human Hunter Laiho behind me in was slaughter was salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad Walla, he was a big mind about. So inshallah I do want to go through some of the important things regarding the month of Muharram what are the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then we'll inshallah we'll get into the historical aspects of that date. First of all, is that the word haram and is a word that has been mentioned and has not been mentioned exactly in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala he actually first of all he says in the Quran, in data show who they are in the law if not, I should I Sharon fee kita Billa Yo Ma halacha similarity with Aldo minha arbeiten Oran,

00:00:43 --> 00:01:26

that Allah subhanho wa Taala has craved the skies in the Earth at the same time he has created 12 months and all these 12 months there are four months that are considered as sacred. And this month Muharram was is considered as an Islamic name and that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala or the Prophet saw some he mentioned in a hadith that this is in reference or this month is called a month of Allah subhana wa Taala because all the other months that we find in the Islamic calendar, there's still some remnants and this is a word or the names were pre existing even during the times of Jai Helia but the name haram in itself was the name that was kept by our deen by Rasulullah sallallahu ani he

00:01:26 --> 00:02:09

was sending them and not only that, but Allah so ut Rahmatullah Allah He also mentioned that before the name haram was kept for this month, the name of this month was suffered a woman was suffered a well why because the next man that comes after Muharram His Word, suffer, so this is the first suffer, and that is the second suffer. So Allama SUTI Rahmatullah Allah He mentioned that and this is why they removed that name as suffered a while, and they named this month Muharram and this is the the month of Allah subhanahu wata Allah. And not only that, but is also considered as one of the sacred months as we find in another Hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which is found

00:02:09 --> 00:02:52

in Sahiwal Behati, Narrated by Abu Bakar, or the allotted time that the Prophet SAW Allah who it was some he says, As senador if na I shall Russia, Iran minha orbitron Haram, that the month comes the year consists of 12 months and amongst them there are four months Fela tune mutawa yet, there are three months that are consecutive, which are those three months, it is the cada they'll hijack, and Maharani and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he then says, well, Roger, and the month of Rajab, so these are the four sacred months. There are other scholars of the past and not only that, but Sahaba of the ultra annum such as Obinna Abbas or the Allah triune that he begins to

00:02:52 --> 00:03:34

provide his own explanation that what does it mean? When Allah says in the Quran, when he talks about these four months and then he says, fella lovely movie hinda and for a second, that do not commit oppression against yourself. So Abram Abasto the ultra Anoma he says that this is a sacred month, or this month has these months had been singled out, because these are the months where you try to do as much as good deeds as you can hasten towards good and stay away from evil sins. And Qatada a scholar of the past mentioned something very similar that in these months, a person should try to everything to come closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. Now, what would happen before the month

00:03:34 --> 00:04:23

in the times of Jai Helia before Islam came, what would happen in this month of Muharram there is a Hadith narrated by Aisha Radi Allahu anha, wherein she says that call it can who your su Munna Ashura, papilla, au fro Pablo au further Ramadan, that I shall turn she says that the people used to fast on the day of Ashura, the 10th of Muharram and before the month of Ramadan was legislated. In fact, she goes on to mention what can a young woman to stir roofie he'll cover that this was a day in which in which the the Kaaba, the cloth in the Kaaba would be changed. So this was a day in history where they would go and they will close the Kaaba and journey they would change on the

00:04:23 --> 00:05:00

clothing or the covering of the Kaaba. She then goes on to say For them, followed Allah Who Ramadan when Allah legislated Ramadan, Father rasool Allah, He said Allahu Allah, he was sending them. The Prophet alayhi salam mentioned Monza and use ANGEL Asuma who fully assume who whoever confess on this day they should fast woman SHA and yet raka who fell yet ruku and whoever cannot fast than they should, they should leave it. So this is a Hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The next thing that comes up this discussion comes up is that why was Muharram the very first

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

first month of the Islamic calendar, whereas many scholars, in fact many the Sahaba, when they sat down at the time were able to hop up, they began to discuss the why should you know which month should be the very first month and the Islamic calendar. Many of them gave them many references. Some said Ramadan because Ramadan is the most virtuous month, some said, No, let's go do let's go. Let's do it up here in a while, because that is the month where the Hijra took place. That is the month where the prophet saw something he passed, he was born and he passed away and who was should be however, they decided that Muharram would be the very first month because when people go for Hajj

00:05:37 --> 00:06:20

as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned in a hadith that anyone who performs Hajj correctly and in the right way, then Raja ik Yeoman will add that to Omo, they will come back as if they are a new human being. So this is a fresh new start. And this is why the month of Muharram should be the beginning at the start of the Islamic calendar. The next thing is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as we see have seen from the past a hadith, that the prophets of Psalm he would fast on the day of Ashura and when he came to Medina when he came to Medina, and he saw the Jewish community fasting on this day, and he asked, Why do you fast on this day, they told him

00:06:20 --> 00:07:02

because this is the day that fit our own was destroyed Musa Allah Islam was saved by Allah subhanho wa taala. He along with his followers, and so we commemorate this day, we remember this day, and the Prophet SAW law. While he was some he says that a hug could be Musa men come that we are more deserving. And in fact, we follow the legacy of Mussolini some even more, therefore, we are most certainly going too fast on this day. Then after that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he instructed the Sahaba to fast on this day, but then at the same time, because he wanted to differentiate between the practices of Islam and the practices of the Jewish community. That's why

00:07:02 --> 00:07:46

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned that if I am alive, and he said this at the end of his life, he says, If I'm alive next year, I'm going too fast on the ninth and on the 10th, to oppose the practices of the Jewish community. And this is something that we find in many cases, however, in in something even Hoceima, another book of Hadith and as mentioned, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he also mentioned that if that too fast, either one day before or one day after, so the OMA are pretty much unanimous upon this, that you have to fast either one day before a one day after at the same time, if a person cannot fast two days and the fast only one day,

00:07:47 --> 00:08:27

it is still not considered as is not considered as a sin. Yes, it is preferable to fast for two days, but if a person does pass only for one day, it is not considered necessarily as a sin. And not only that, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he also mentioned that anyone who fasts on this day, then in sha Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive the sins of one year. At the same time, it is very important for all of us to remember, it is not the major sins that are forgiven, and they are the only the minor sins are forgiven. The major sins are only forgiven through a sincere Toba to Allah subhanho wa taala. It is And subhanAllah one thing I do want to mention here

00:08:27 --> 00:09:13

is that look at look at this, this actually shows us the Felina of this OMA over all the previous OMAS Arafa Arafa, the Day of Arafah. What is the virtue of fasting I refer to since two years of sins are forgiven? I shoot off only one why? Because the Jewish community were already fasting the problem someone says no I Huckabee Musa minquan, that we are more deserving a Musa and therefore we are going to fast. But since this was a practice of the past, and he was coming along, on the other hand out alpha is something that no other Omaha, it was given to the OMA of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is why mandorla they say that because of this, there is more virtue in

00:09:13 --> 00:09:56

fasting on the Day of Arafah there are two sets, two years of sins are forgiven, versus one year of sins. But nonetheless, we should try to make a point to fast on this day. Now, going into the story or the historical analysis of Muharram. One thing I do also want to mention is some people have asked this question that can I fast, every single day to the 10th of Muharram. Can I fast? The first the second all the way to the 10th and the answer that question is that yes, you can fast if you want, because the Prophet said Allah Who are they he was sending him he mentions in a hadith about the importance or how fasting in this month he says I need Salam of Volusia me by the Ramadan sha

00:09:56 --> 00:09:59

Allah in Muharram. This is a Hadith found in Sahih Muslim so

00:10:00 --> 00:10:36

Because of this hadith, and because of the the fasting is very virtuous and very beloved to Allah subhanho wa taala. There is nothing wrong if you do fast. At the same time, we do have to keep in mind and bear in mind that there is no special for Lila, there is no special for Lita, that if you fast the first 10 days of the month of Muharram, or you fast as many days as you want in the month of Muharram there is no other special virtue besides this. And now how much is it beloved to Allah? And how much can you fast? That's really up to you. But nonetheless, this is the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:10:37 --> 00:11:19

Now going to as I was talking about the historical analysis, that many of us we see, and we hear about, on the regarding the 10th of Muharram. And, and once again, in our deen the way we approach this day of the of the month of the 10th of Muharram. First of all, is we keep the Hadith of the prophets of Salaam in mind, and we revere this day because of what the Prophet said Allah who it was some he said, We don't revere this day, because this the day the grandson of the Prophet son lost lost his life. That is not why we revere this day, we revere this day because of your hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Nonetheless, we should know our history, and we should know

00:11:19 --> 00:11:26

exactly what happened in our history. So going back and I want to try to make this as quickly as I can.

00:11:28 --> 00:11:59

As we all know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned in a hadith, that when it comes to the fitness, the fitness will come after the alpha of automative Anahata Rhodiola Tehran, and lo and behold, during the time it was mine, but I found on the yellow line the the fitness did begin at his time. Now once again, the you have the family of the province that Allahu Allah he was setting them they are the hash Amis and so forth. And on the other hand, you have the

00:12:00 --> 00:12:01

you have

00:12:02 --> 00:12:44

what's not even a federal the Allah tonight and during the life of worth money of now I found with the EULA tonight. He had appointed why are we out of the allotted time, to be the governor of Egypt. And while we I was a very smart and he was a very intelligent man. He was once again also a hobby of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his own sister. His own sister was married to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was OMA Habiba the Allah Tala Anna so there is no fact there's no denying the fact that he was he was a Sahabi of the Prophet sallallahu it he was setting them now what happened is that in the time of birth maybe now as we all know that the rebels they

00:12:44 --> 00:13:26

came inside Medina and right in front of the family of ortho I have not found they took the life of ortho even though I found whether you're allowed to line now after this had happened, Ali will deal with it he was selected as the Khalifa Oliver Viola and he there was a lot of pressure on him from many of this habit of the Allah Quran home including why we are the Ultra and because while we are in Northman, both are from the omegas Okay, so they come from the same tribe. So now while we are once I lead to take some serious steps, and bring these people these rebels to justice, and not only that, but you have people like even I shall the Allah, Allah and many others who want justice to be

00:13:26 --> 00:14:07

served. Now aliotta On the other hand, he's thinking to himself that there were so many people involved we don't have there were no cameras at that time. We don't have footage of what happened exactly. We only have you know, you know, here in se people have said different things, but to go and to to bring people to justice. This requires to launch a full on investigation. We cannot just go and grab people off the street and then hold them hold them accountable. This requires a lot of work. So this is why I need to and he did put this off for a while and he never took any action. And when the Sahaba they took this to heart, the fact that I leave or the and did not take action

00:14:07 --> 00:14:57

immediately now because there was so much turbulence and so much turmoil and taking place in Medina. I live on the alotta Island decided that in order to keep the peace in Medina, let's transfer the house of affairs from Medina to Kufa and so they all transferred to Kufa and began to live in Kufa. And so this is where Ali Rhodiola and he was and he stayed over there. Now after after audio the Allah on the whole, the whole discussion takes place is that who is the next Khalifa of Islam and for the Muslims who is the next leader for the Muslims? The people in Egypt had already declared why we as their leader, okay, here on the other hand in Kufa, they had already nominated Huson okay

00:14:57 --> 00:15:00

Hassan, the older brother because there's Hassan and Hussein how

00:15:00 --> 00:15:40

As soon as the older brother who is seen as a younger brother, so they had already declared Hassan as the governor or I mean the Khalifa. Now, because there was so much because here on one end, some people are saying no why we as a Khalifa, somebody were saying no Hassan is a Khalifa Hassan at the end of the day had a lot of wisdom. And he realized that for me, it's not about the name, the stability of the OMA, the peace within the OMA is more important to me than having some leadership or to have, you know, to be a leader, this is not so much important for me. And so he went and he basically told him why we are that if you want this power so bad, if you want this power, so bad, go

00:15:40 --> 00:16:21

ahead and take it, it's yours. But the condition is that if I am alive and you pass away, then I will become the Khalifa Okay, I will become the Khalifa. And not only that, but when he did this, the people of Kufa were really upset. They were really upset because once again, they are revering Ali or the ultra iron that he brought everything to Kufa so they first of all, they have a great deal of respect for Ali or the autobahn. And then not only that, but they want his son to become the nice Khalifa and when when Hassan gives it away, they're very upset even Hussein his younger brother was also very upset that why did you just give it away you should have fought for it. You should

00:16:21 --> 00:17:03

have demanded him and told him who you were you are the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu ala Sena put some fight into it and keep it but you gave it away so they were upset about it. But Jose instead of once again, the title is not so much important for me as much as the stability and the peace in the OMA and why we are he agreed he agreed. He said that if I if I die if I pass away and you are live on us, you're the next Khalifa. Now what happened after that was that Hassan and Hussein are the Allah Tala and Houma de from there, they went to Medina and they began to reside in Medina. They left Kufa. They went to Medina and they began to stay over there now. Hassan died in

00:17:03 --> 00:17:49

the year 50 After hijra, okay, he died in the year 50 After Hijrah. And what happens is that when he dies while we are still alive, okay, so now that agreement that they had in place to begin with, it's no longer there. So now while we have feels that if you know if Hassan is here, I would have given it to him. But Husted is not here anymore, all the time. And now it's my decision, I can give it to whoever I want. At that time, he begins to appoint, and he begins to make everyone aware that I am going to make my son Yes, even more, are we the next Khalifa. And he begins to tell everyone about this. Now, a few things to keep in mind here is even more Alia was not as a hobby of the

00:17:49 --> 00:18:31

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And even though his time is very close to the time of the Prophet SAW Salem, yet, there are many historians who have very negative things to say about Yazidi women and my IWEA the sun and why we are the Ultron. And in fact, there are some historical records that do mention that he was he would get drunk, often, he was involved in Zina and so forth. And so once again, this is not a hobby, we cannot talk about any Sahabi. In this way, he has also hobby so when we when historical records do exist, there is no problem mentioning that these are some historical records that do exist. Now. What happened was that at that time, in Medina, Hussein was

00:18:31 --> 00:19:24

there. And he is yes. Why we sent a letter after Yazeed actually becomes the Khalifa, your Z sends a letter to Medina and says that he tells the governor of Medina that I want you to go and make sure you get the, the allegiance, you get the br From Hussein in particular, that is the person that I am, I want to make sure that he gives me He gives me beta. Now at that time, Hussein was not in the mood of giving his beta two years even in Malawi. And and one thing I do for free I did forget to mention, while we did tell his son Yazeed, that look, you are going to become the leader because I'm appointing you. But if there's one thing that you gotta be very careful and be gentle with, that is

00:19:24 --> 00:19:55

the family of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you gotta be careful about them. You cannot, you know, you cannot there's no foul play, that can't you cannot come in any kind of foul play against them. But nonetheless, he mentioned all this but once again, Yazeed is not a very religious man to begin with. So for him, the words of this father are just mere words and after he becomes the Khalifa, he begins to make everyone make bail out to him now when the governor at that time of Medina, came to Hussein and said that I want you to give

00:19:56 --> 00:19:59

give your allegiance or your bait to us either.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:40

He has either been in Malawi or he said that you know what, I need to sleep on this, I need some time to think about this and give me a few days. And what happened was that Hussein went home, consulted with his family, and they decided to flee Medina so they fled Medina, and they went to Makkah. Now when they went to Makkah, there was still a submenu that Sahaba who was still alive, you know, Abdullah binominal, the Allah and Houma and many of the keyboard Sahaba of the alata, on whom were still there. And as soon as Hussein came into Mecca, they assured him that here in Mecca, there is no influence of the omegas here mean that there is no influence of Yazeed we don't care about

00:20:40 --> 00:21:24

your zine, in fact, this the Sahaba for the most part, majority of the Sahaba and in fact, there are some books I mentioned all the Sahaba that existed at that time, who were in Mecca, none of them gave their BI to us even more IWEA now what happens is that letters now the people of Kufa, while many people have given their Baotou Yes, even why we are the people of Kufa did not give their br Two years even why we are. And what they began to do is that they began to send letters to Hussein or the Elata an homage that we want you to be our next leader, you come here, we will respect you, you will become our leader. And no matter what anyone says. And these letters began to come in

00:21:24 --> 00:21:38

abundance, a large amount of mail began to come from the people of Kufa. And at that time, it was a month of the hijab or the month of delicata and transitioning into the month of the hijab. And at that time,

00:21:41 --> 00:22:21

Hussein of Yolanda Annaleigh, he begins to give us some thought, and he begins to consult with some the other Sahaba or the Allah to the iron home. And they all suggested to him that it is not a good idea to even think about it. But at the same time, he's saying because he was getting so much mail, he said that let me know. Let me just look into this matter. So what he did was that he sent his cousin by the name of Muslim Benaki into Kufa and go scout the area go find out what's going on, Muslim and it goes to goes there. And as soon as he comes there, he tells him that I am the deputy. And not only that, but I'm the representative. At the same time I'm the cousin of the grandson of

00:22:21 --> 00:23:02

the Prophet said Allahu Allah. He was sent him to pee and the people of Kufa they rejoiced, and they were so happy and so forth. In fact, everyone gave their allegiance and they all gave almost a monarchy, their word that if Hussein comes here, we will give him our be completely. Now here already in Kufa, the leader or the governor, there was no I'm not even Bushido. Viola. I know my machine is a very famous Companion of the Prophet SAW Salem. He is the companion who narrated a hadith that Imam Shafi Rahmatullah Allah he says that this is 1/3 of our deen and that is the Hadith of the Prophet al Halal obey and we'll haram obey Ian ouabain Omar will mourn with a shabby had a

00:23:02 --> 00:23:43

very famous hadith is also part of the the Otterbein of email now we don't have to lie late. So what happened was that you know, not normally and but she was there and the fact that he knows that the you know, the the the grandson of also may come here and he's open to that. However, what happens is that Muslim it then sends a letter to to Hussein and says, you know, what, these people are truly in love with you come here, okay. Now, Hussein when he gets this letter, he's like, You know what, now I'm gonna put some serious consideration into this. And then he you know, in from it all down, you know, it all that simply means that you know, is just an idea and then when the idea becomes even

00:23:43 --> 00:24:21

more strong and more firm, and you make your firm decision that becomes an Azzam and as Allah says in the Quran for either Assumpta for tilaka, Allah, Allah when you make a firm intention, put your reliance on Allah and move forward. And this is exactly what he did. So he decided that I'm gonna go, and the Sahaba one by one, not once, but three times, four times, they came to Hussein, and they said, This is not a good idea. This is not a good idea. And not only that, but then at the end, they even suggested they even suggested that, you know, don't take your family with you because he was going with his family. And not only that, because he received a letter from Western monarchy and,

00:24:21 --> 00:24:57

and Muslim nakita sitting in Kufa and he it seems like he's going to be residing there. The family of Muslim monarchy also says that we're going to travel with you and we're going to rejoin our father there in Kufa. So all so this, you know, this huge group that is traveling with Hussein, and once again, everyone's telling him, Don't go, don't go, don't go and he's like, You know what? I'm going to go. And again, they told him, don't go with your family. He says, No, I need to go with my family and they all went, they all started this journey. Now. Going back to Kufa, someone and Kufa sent a letter to Jezebel more IWEA that if you do not take action, this is not normal in Russia.

00:24:57 --> 00:24:59

This is another person. He sent this letter

00:25:00 --> 00:25:44

If you don't take action right now you are going to lose gufa. These are people who are immensely in love with Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you're going to lose the city. So what did he do? He assigned a very vicious person, a very vicious politician, I will say by name of Ibn as yet, okay, it is yeah, that don't get this mixed up because a lot of times, because the Z will always get mixed up. What is your Z David and what are we okay? And this is Ibanez. Yeah, okay, because he is not the brother is just another person who did exist in the kingdom of Yazidi women, what are we up? And even my time i times even I do get, I have a slip of

00:25:44 --> 00:26:25

the tongue. So keep in mind that these are two different people. Yes, even while we are in evidence. Yeah, so Yazeed sends me Ziad that go there. First of all, you take enough away from normal even Bashir and number two is give me a report of what is going on there. So he goes there, and he goes with a full entourage. And when he gets there, he does not cut he keeps his face covered. Okay, he keeps his face covered. First of all, he went there, he informed the governor that I have been set. I've been appointed as the new governor of Kufa. So normally I'm sure is removed from his position. And then he goes amongst the people. Now when the people see him, they do not know, you know, they

00:26:25 --> 00:27:09

do not know who is how does Hussein even look like they have somewhat of an idea, because they seen Hussein when he was here, when he was there, living with his living with his father, but at the same time, they don't know who this person is. So they think that it is Hussein, but in reality, it's who in his yard. And if and when they come they think that is Hussein, and they're like you know Subhan Allah you know, oh grants on the Prophet SAW son, we've been waiting for you and everyone the whole town comes out to welcome to welcome what they think is Hussein, but this is even his yet. And at that time it is yet he realizes that Oh, yes, what the letter that he has even received is true. And

00:27:09 --> 00:27:55

we are we can lose our we can lose our political hole here. So what did he What did he do? He began to send out some people, and he told them that disguise yourself as the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and go and find out who is who is sheltering. This love this man was the monarchy. Because this is the man who has come from Makkah, we need to get some more information from him. They went they began to find out they went, they ended up at a house that belonged to a name by the name of honey bin Ottawa. And so honey in Ottawa was He was then taken, taken to Ibiza and imminence. He asked him for some more information. And he says that there's no way I'm going to

00:27:55 --> 00:28:00

give you some information. And it said that at that time, he

00:28:01 --> 00:28:44

so at that time, he took honey bin or one out when most of them in our field comes and he finds out that Honeyman always has been taken. He tells all of his supporters that we're gonna go and march to the castle and the forte of even a Ziad and we're going to demand his release, and we're going to demand justice. And if we need to, we'll take his life, and we're going to fight against them. And what happened was that they went there all the way there. But you know, see, this is the problem of the OMA in many cases, that as the Prophet saw some he mentioned that one of the greatest photos of my OMA is wealth. And what happened was that the army of even a Ziad, they came to all the people in

00:28:44 --> 00:28:51

his mansion, that when they went all the way to the to the fort, they were approximately

00:28:54 --> 00:29:37

there are approximately 4000 people according to one narration, or going to one historical record. And according to some there were 12,000 and when they got there, eventually what happened was that the army, they began to bribe everyone. You sure you want to do this? Leave Don't be with Don't be with him or seminar, he will give you money and slowly and gradually, everyone left and has said that in the morning, he went there with according to one narration 4412 1000. But by nightfall, by nightfall, every person had been bribed, and the only person standing at the fort was Muslim Benaki all by himself. Everyone had betrayed him. Now, Muslim monarchy realizes that what's going to happen

00:29:37 --> 00:29:59

to him so what does he do? He goes and he goes to the house of a woman and says that, you know, I'm a stranger. I don't know anyone here everyone's abandon me. Can you please give me a place in your house? And so first of all, she she said, No, but then when was the monarchy he said, who he was. He then says, you know, oh, you're from you're related to the family. The problem is, I'm marhaba Megan come inside now.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:50

When she when he went inside, he stayed there and later on the sun came later on the sun came. And when he found out that Oh, I have a guy here on my home that our leader is seeking out. So he reached out to the army of, of imminent Ziad and said that I have the man that you're looking for I have Muslim monarchy. And he then asked for he demanded some money. And after he was given his money, he gave up Muslim monarchy, and then said that Muslim monarchy and both honey in Ottawa, they were both executed. Now, what happened was this already, Hussein and his whole group, they are heading towards Kufa. And at that time, there was there was, it said that according to something on

00:30:50 --> 00:31:22

someone's toggle records, there was a messenger that was sent to tell Hussein that turnaround and go back to MCDA. They, the army of Ibn Ziad had intercepted that man, they had executed that man, and there was another person that was sent out to send this message to Hussein. And that meant and that messenger was able to reach reach him. And so it said that in the beginning of the ledger now once again journey took took a long time at that time so on the beginning, or like I believe they were executed honeymoon Ottawa and

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

and Musa monarchy, they were both executed on the ninth of the ledger. Neither had just one day.

00:31:32 --> 00:32:13

They have what? That Ivanova. Okay, they will execute on that day, then. So eighth of the Hijjah is when Hussein he left on his journey, so he does not know exactly what happened. So once again, as he's making his way he gets to a place. And they find out that this is exactly what has happened and the children in the family of Muslim monarchy. They're like, we need to avenge the death of our father. And not only that, but Hussein decided to take a detour and take a different path. And he went to a place and he landed in a place called Karbala, okay. And then when he reached over there, he found out that he asked what is the name of this play, they said Karbala, and he basically in his

00:32:13 --> 00:32:40

mind, he he basically formulate this idea that Cornwall Bella, it means like regret in Hustla, and the place where there is no good fortune. At that time, he realized that this might be the end. And this is this is probably the end of him. But nonetheless, he went over there. And he reached over there on the first or the second of Muharram. And most historical records, say the seventh and Muharram. And when he got over there

00:32:41 --> 00:33:09

it is he finds out that this is exactly what has happened. And they go and they send out so many 1000s of people for soldiers to go in surround the house or the place where Hussein was staying along with his family along with the family of a Muslim monarchy. And at that time, it said that even a Ziad he basically came and he says that look, you know, at that time he had sent

00:33:11 --> 00:33:46

he had sent a person he said three people, and this would happen he sent a person and for a very first person by the name of Harbin Yazzie, the Herban Yazeed came, he saw her saying and he said that, uh you seriously, you want to do this, you know, and what they did was that they stopped all kinds of supplies, they will not give them water, they will not give them food, they will not give anything so that they will give themselves up. And at that time when he asked for water. He said that, you know, he's like, I cannot give you water he says like he goes how are you going to ask water for my grandfather on the Day of Judgment? If you're willing to deny me water today? How are

00:33:46 --> 00:34:30

you going to take water from my the hands of my grandfather on the day of judgment so harder because he had also a he had a soft spot in his heart. So when is when is he I found out he was like No We need someone who's firm with this with this man. And so he removed hold me as he then he said another person by the name. Amen. Amen Assad woman It was It came also still making the story short, he had a sympathetic heart towards Hussein. And at that time, he was also removed and then he sent the last person his name was shimmer. Ibn Ibn Avila Joshi them and this man had no mercy and He came to Hussein and he says, You have two choices, okay? Either you're going to be executed, or you give

00:34:30 --> 00:34:59

your br Two years even while we are and at that time, Hussein said that I have three options if you can give me one of those options, I'm absolutely fine. First option is let me go back to Medina or MCCA I will not bother you I will not bother anyone. Let me just go back to MCCA or let me go and talk to Ziad myself. Sorry. Let me go talk to his even while we are myself. Okay. I know him. Okay. There is some family ties there. Let me go talk to him myself.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:40

They are the third is the let me go and fight in the Cause of Allah subhanho wa taala. And I'll spend my, my, the rest of my days just doing this for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And they said, No, you that's not the options, the option is either you're going to give your UBI to Yazeed, or you're going to lose your life. And at that time, on the 10th of Muharram, it was the morning of the 10th of Muharram. And they began to close in, and the the the children and the other people there, they came to Hussein, and they said that these people are closing in that time Hussein, he got his armor, and he told everyone else to gather their armor, and they went out and they lost

00:35:40 --> 00:36:26

their life Hussein on that day was killed. Now, the the now till today, you know what we know that the the Shiite people till today, they beat themselves for this because they believe that when Hussein needed our help, we kept on sending letters that Come, come come. And when he was there at Karbala, and he needed our help, we were not there to give him our support and our help. And so we therefore neglected we betrayed the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and five years later, and so it's not like it happened the next year that they began, you know, the light bulb clicked on and like, oh, you know what, we did something wrong. Five years, almost five years

00:36:26 --> 00:37:08

after this whole incident, they began to realize that what we have gotten, you know, we were first i Lele Don was here in our city. And then we have so much love for his children. And we sent the letters, and this is how we betrayed her saying, I love you a lot. And I'm on home. And, and once again, till today that she has or they call themselves she had to leave the family. And she had to ollie actually means the family of the of audio of Yolanda. And so they view themselves as the family of audio Viola Tron, and they feel like that they have betrayed and this is why till today, they, they, they beat themselves and they hurt themselves to feel the pain. And this is why

00:37:08 --> 00:37:50

Subhanallah it's you know, if you have seen the footage and the videos of what usually happens within these communities, it is seriously it's and they're I mean, these are people who are bleeding, they're bleeding, they are using blades, and they're hitting themselves, and they're going through pain. But the whole concept of the whole idea is that we are giving ourselves the pain to help us realize the pain that possibly for saying the yellow to on who he went through at the time of his death. So once again, I mean this is once again, we don't deny that this has happened. We do agree that this happened and we do agree that the people of Kufa were not there, the people of Kufa

00:37:50 --> 00:38:27

betrayed and these people should have been there to defend the grandson of the province that Allahu alayhi wa sallam. There is no doubt about that. However, of course, we don't do that kind of stuff, because our deen is not so much built on who died and who was born, it's not so much about that. Yes, I mean, we talk about these kinds of things. Like for example, you know, when we, when we talk about the birth of the Prophet sallallahu, it was some people talk about the birth of the Prophet SAW Selim, and so forth. But for the most part, our deen is not based on people who have died and you know, Comadre, or, you know, remembering these days and so forth. We remember the day because of

00:38:27 --> 00:39:05

the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but at the same time, it's very important to know what exactly happened. And since then, this has been going on with that community. And for us, it's a historical record. And one thing that we learned from this from this story is, the first of all, the most important thing that we learned is the importance of standing up for what is right. And that's exactly what Hussein did. He did not go and give his baby, two years even more Alia, he realized that this was not the right thing. And if he had done this, this would have put pressure on many other people. And to stand up for what is right is very, very important. And this should be a

00:39:05 --> 00:39:43

rule of our life. This is this is something that we should be teaching our children in fact, that you will always stand up for what is right, there's always going to be pressure. Well, you always enter for what is right. The second thing that we learned from all this is that the fact that we know the sin that is even imminent IWEA he carried out or imminent zeod carried out and so forth, is very important to know, who are the criminals, we should always know who are the wrong doors in our history, we should not just, you know, put it under the under the rug and just, you know, ignore it. But it's very important that this story, more than anything else also shows us who are the

00:39:43 --> 00:39:59

criminals. And the reason why some of the Obama they mentioned why this is so important is because we need to know who our enemy is to. We need to know who are the people who are bringing in wrong influence. We need to know who are the people who are not in favor. And not only that what we learned from this is that you

00:40:00 --> 00:40:31

Even in our day and age, we need to know what is going on around us. We need to know who is who really cares for us, who does not care for us. So these are the things that we learn from the story of, of the whole incident of Karbala. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala more than anything else besides the historical analysis, going back to the Hadith, the Prophet SAW Salem and so forth, we should try to do everything that we can, because this is the month of Allah subhanho wa taala. Try to fast on the ninth and the 10th or the 10th or the 11th. And,

00:40:32 --> 00:41:06

and so which is Sunday or Monday, or Monday or Tuesday, whatever you can do in sha Allah if you cannot do both days, at least and do just one day to theirs. It's not it is not recommended in that in that sense, but still, it doesn't mean that the fasting will not be rewarded, you saw the fasting will be rewarded. Nonetheless I asked Allah subhana wa Tada to give all of us ability to practice what has been sent to her and may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us ability to revere these months. The months that have been mentioned in the hadith of was was ALLAH hottie was salam. I mean, Zack Malachite. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
