Hello, everyone welcome back to the virtues of the hedger. So a lot of times we fail to connect our good deeds, the good deeds done in following the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and the way he did these good deeds with the prophets that came before. And Doing so allows us to connect at a at a deeper spiritual level with the prophets that came before the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and also understanding the way that Allah allowed these times and these deeds to coincide with one another. So a lot of people for example, in Ramadan, when I quote the Hadith about how the Prophet peace be upon him mentioned how all of the holy books were revealed within the month of Ramadan in a way that

00:00:45--> 00:00:53

coincided with the month of Ramadan, not just the Koran, they'd be shocked so the in G the Torah, the tablets of

00:00:54--> 00:01:34

Ibrahim and Musa were all revealed in the month of Ramadan as the Prophet slice I mentioned the Psalms of David of that would it some all revealed in the month of Ramadan, now it coincided with the month of Ramadan right so Allah allowed Allah Who controls time, last pentatonic chose that time to coincide with the time in which these books would revealed not just the answer, there's a deep spiritual connection across obviously with hedge Ibrahim it is set up right you think of Ibrahim on Islam, the prophet Abraham peace be upon him raising the foundations but that's also the first place of worship, or Adam, it is Adam and Eve. It has Salaam Hauer resided in the angels built a place of

00:01:34--> 00:02:14

the worship of Allah Ibrahim raised the foundations. We also find the Prophet slicin mentioning prophets that visited the holy place that visited Hajj at some point or that made hydrometer that visited the holy place in Mecca at some point in their lives. The Prophet sighs I mentioned who daddy is Salaam and the prophets I mentioned musante his setup. So imagine Musa alayhis salaam making tawaf around the Kaaba, the police that was established by his grandfather and the grandfather of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Ibrahim, it is right that Abraham raised the house with his son, Ishmael. And so other prophets honor that as well. So musante is salam, the prophet

00:02:14--> 00:02:50

slice I mentioned Musashi is Salaam, visiting Mecca. He also there's a narration which Mossad is, and I'm asked a lot what the best, the best form of remembrance was on the day of autofab, because there was a recognition of the importance of the day of alpha. And he was told that he learned a lot the testimony of faith simply bearing witness to the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala. Because when we we were extracted from the back of Adam and his Salaam, on that day, we all testify to the oneness of Allah. So the best form of remembrance, the best form of the kid on the day of alpha is testifying to the oneness of Allah, in any way, right. And the best form the prophets lie some

00:02:50--> 00:03:29

taught us was, he said, I and the prophets have not said anything better notice he said, I and the prophets have not said anything better on this day of autofire than La ilaha illallah wa de la sharika lahu, Makoto unhemmed, who are in a coalition party. So I bear witness to the oneness of Allah just as we bore witness on that day when we were originally extracted, La ilaha illallah wa de la sharika, testifying that he has no partner, that he is alone in his dominion, that holds one quarter hold hands, he's alone in his dominion, and he is the most worthy of praise alone, and being praised in a way that a God would be praised, well, who is actually sitting there and he has power

00:03:29--> 00:04:11

over all things. So all of the forms of the testimony of faith, all of the prophets used to do that on the day of alpha, to remember the day when we were extracted from the back of the Prophet Adam, it has saddam doing so. So there's another interesting connection in the Quran for us to think about that on the day of AIDS. That is the day that Allah spoke to musante his Salaam directly according to the majority of the scholars. Now what is this referring to a lot of mentions, and the 40 days of musante, Salama fasting so this is biblically in the exodus 3428 it says Moses was there with the Lord 40 days and 40 nights without eating bread or drinking water. And he wrote the tablets in the

00:04:11--> 00:04:57

words of the covenant as Muslims we also have in the Anwar Edna Moosa, Latina Lila watts mum now hubby asked for some mommy cartoon, rugby that we made an appointment with Moses for 30 nights and perfected them by the addition of 10. So musasa initially had 30 days of fasting, and then Allah subhanaw taala gave him an additional 10 days, and in that he perfected the he completed the 40 nights with Allah subhanaw taala. And then Allah mentions at the end of that when a merger or Mussolini cartina or kalama horombo that when Moses came at the time and police appointed by us and his Lord spoke to him, and that's when Mossad is Salam said, rob the attorney under like, oh my

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

lord, allow me to look upon you. Show me yourself that I am a

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

Look on you. So what is this referring to? Again? musar. Islam had 30 days. And the scholars mentioned that the 30 days of Mossad, he said, I'm fasting was the date what were the days of the Garda? And then Allah gave him an extra 10 which coincided with the 10 of the hedger. So those 10 days that Mossad is Saddam was fasting, where the 10 days of that hedgerow we have a relationship to this as Muslims because we just finished not so long ago, the 30 days of Ramadan, or the month of Ramadan, and then Allah gives us another 10 days, the most blessed 10 days of the year after the most blessed month of the year. And so we should think of it in that same way that we draw close to

00:05:41--> 00:06:16

Allah subhana wa tada with these 10 days. And at this point, you know, really think about how much would draw a person starts to feel from Ramadan. Now, you know, you felt like you had your goals, you set your highs, you thought you were gonna be able to persist in doing certain things and then Ramadan ended and you fell off. This is your chance now with these additional 10 days that Allah has given you, to come close to him to draw close to him, to make sure that you take the full advantage of it. And as we go out on the day of AIDS, this day of the sacrifice The Omen now how we should be thinking about how Allah spoke to musante some directly honored his Prophet Moses peace be upon him

00:06:16--> 00:06:38

by speaking to him directly on that day of aid at the end of this period, may Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to meet him on the Day of Judgment. While he's pleased with us, allow us to see him on the Day of Judgment while he is pleased with us and allow us to be joined with all of the profits and the highest level of gender and for those staring and gazing upon him alone. I mean, does that mean lol halona salaam alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
