Mr Barrett, we begin by praising Allah and bearing witness that man has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him. And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger We ask Allah to send his peace and blessings upon him, all
of the prophets and messengers that came before him, his family and companions that served alongside him, and those that follow in their blessed path until the day of judgment. And we ask Allah to make us amongst them Allahumma Amin, the brothers and sisters, this Monday is literally the best day of the year. A time that if Allah gives us the ability to see it may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to live to see it and allow us to be accepted on that day may never come back to us. And it's the day that the prophets lie Selim described as Cairo Yeoman Tada at fie Hashem so young Arafa the best day that the sun has risen upon is the day of autofill the day that you come to know your Lord, every
single year. The prophets lie Selim said, hey, you know,
you're young you're out offer that the best supplication is the supplication on that date of our offer. Well, hello my call to Anna Anna be human probably and the best of what I and the prophets before me have said, meaning all of the prophets were guided to this day. They said on that day La ilaha illallah wa sallahu, luxury color level Mercola unhemmed Wahoo are unequally shading for the there is only one God what the who learns that he can alone with no partners, no one will call our hand To Him belongs all praise. To Him belongs all blessings were who are unequally shaped and Kadir and To Him belongs power over all things. This is what all of the prophets would say on this day.
The day that marks yo Mashhad, Hamada and footsy him allow us to be Rob become Carlu Bella Shaheed dinner the day that marks the moment that we all stood in front of Allah. And just as you look around, and you see all of these people spread out today, all of us stood before Allah on that day. And it was upon us that an oath was taken. Allah asked each and every single one of us Am I not your Lord, and all of us say Bella Shahina Yes, we bear witness, we bear witness the DUA, or that oath that the prophets I seldom mentions that Allah refers to in the Quran, when he says, SHA, he didn't want to shoot the Prophet size, and I'm setting an authentic narration that allow minimal rude the
Promised Day is the day of judgment. The Shahid, the witness, is say you do a yum, yum Juma, the best of all days of the week, which is the day of Friday, and mash hood, the day of the witness is the day of alpha, where Allah calls the angels and says, look at all of these people around the world, calling upon me, invoking me in their languages, coming to the place of alpha, which we'll talk about in a moment covered in dust exhausted their sleep schedules off each one of them with their own unique they're as each one of them with their own hopes, calling upon one God. The day that the angels witness that Allah has forgiven all of us may Allah Subhan Allah to Allah make us
amongst those that are forgiven Allah him I mean, the day that represents one of the five pillars of Islam, this is very interesting, that of the five pillars of Islam the first pillar, which we will witness today in sha Allah Tana is when someone testifies to the oneness of God for the very first time, as head to Allah, Allah Allah Allah shadow under Muhammad Rasool Allah, one pillar of Islam fulfilled by one statements, one testimony, in which you turn the page with your Lord. Everything that has been done before is forgotten. You come back to your origin, and enter into that fifth law. That's the first pillar of Islam. And the last pillar of Islam is hedge, where you go back to your
Lord in an enactment of death, wearing the clothes of duff once again testifying La ilaha illallah Lubbock Allah who's gonna bake Here I am, Oh Allah, responding to your call, affirming your oneness, uncorrupted and undistracted by everything that the world has thrown at me, recognizing my purpose in life is to worship You.
What had you alpha and hedge is on
have that moment where once again you stand in front of Allah subhanaw taala saying throughout the day La Ilaha illa Allah, you are only one and I'm coming to you fully acknowledging that on my terms, responding to you, oh Allah.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching us that throughout the day of out of the best thing that you can do is renew that covenant over and over and over again before you think about your wish list. Before you think about all the things you want to ask your Lord throughout the day La ilaha illAllah La ilaha illa Allah allow us to become better. You are my Lord why the hula Cherie Tara continuously renewing your covenant with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah throughout the day. And the word out of a means to come to know to come to know who to come to know your Lord, woman out of Allah who out of Annessa who and if you know your Lord, then you know yourself, woman
out of enough so who and if you know yourself and tell off a B then B went up to him or Allah azza wa jal. Then once you know your Lord, and then you know yourself, then you will naturally know your own shortcomings in regards to your Lord, the blessings that He has bestowed upon you are a prerequisite to you understanding the deficiency with which you have responded, which then leads you to the most sincere version of your supplication. Realize that the drought that we say throughout that day does not just have an acknowledgement of Allah's oneness but a praised for all of the blessings that He showered upon us throughout the year.
And the prophets lie sometimes say that it's the far the chief of seeking forgiveness Allahumma Antara de la ilaha illa and halacha 21 Abduch when Allah
DKMs Tokar to become incidentally Massara to boo will actually be an aromatic Allah Yeah, what will be them be fiddly fitna hula through the Nova Allah and Oh Allah, You are my Lord, You created me, and I am your slave. And I am upon the promise, the oath, the covenant that I have taken with you, I will perform to the best of my ability. I seek refuge in You from what I have done. And I admit to you all of your niram all of the blessings that you have descended upon me, what about will be them be and how I have responded in a way in which shortcoming is inevitable due to the magnificence of you and the blessings that you have descended upon me. And subhanAllah throughout the day, on the
day of alpha, you are acknowledging that as well because you can't know your own deficiency unless you acknowledge His blessings upon you the same way that you can't know that you are his slave if you don't acknowledge Him as your master. The same way that you can't negate all of the other gods unless you acknowledge and affirm the oneness of God, the God of Abraham, the God of Moses, the god of Jesus, the god of Muhammad, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made his peace and blessings be upon all of his prophets. You cannot do one without the other and look at the similarity of those dragons as they come together. Now, here's the thing.
A lot of times, when you think of alpha, you think of a place you think of the place of our fall. Out of that is so much more spectacular. When you're actually there in the Macan, in the place and you see the Pilgrims covered and thus, you can envision what the hadith is telling you about the humility of the people that are coming before their Lord, leaving everything behind, acknowledging his oneness, sleep deprived, but hopeful in his mercy. You can see it when you're there and out.
But as even knowledge of Rahim Allah to Allah He said out of it is McCann and Zina. It's a place and a time when men walk off the Alpha gem Alpha lead, McCann was the man and if a person is blessed to stand in the place of alpha, may Allah subhanaw taala allow us all another opportunity to stand in alpha. Then he combines or she combines the blessing of the time and the place. But you have to remember that there EBA of Allah for the worship of Allah for the prophets lie Selim, for seven years before Hajj was fasting.
It was fasting the day of out often Medina longing for the opportunity to stand in Ottawa just like we longed for it. It was a remarkable day, a special day to the Prophet slice Saddam and the Muslims every single year without Hajj. And we have to renew that in our hearts that this is the best day of the year. You know, you think about what you would do. Sometimes it just takes our own drive to then dictate the way that we achieve our goals. You think about what you would do if you had the most important day of your life.
Right, which we'll just say for the sake of it, your wedding, the day that you have a child there
Your spouse gives birth to a child the day of your child's graduation. That day is a momentous day on that year's calendar, you're looking forward to it you are longing for it. And as of another Rahim Allah to Allah points out how amazing is it that like Allah subhanaw taala and Ramadan we don't know which of the last 10 Nights is the last time night so the best night of the year is concealed. So we strive for all 10 Nights right? But we know exactly when office.
We know exactly when office. We know the day. We know the time, we can plan for it. We have no doubt that this is the best day of the year. We have no doubt that everything the Prophet's life that I'm said is happening is happening in those moments where Allah is boasting to the angels and forgiving his creation, as Ibn Rajab Rahim Allah to Allah says Allah Mina Na, alert Mina na the prize of being forgiven on that day, and that leads me here and Muslimeen
that is for everyone that is observing this amount of that day, the time of that day that is not just for the people standing in the Macan, in the place of alpha, the forgiveness from Allah that comes on that day covers everyone.
That is renewing that covenant with Allah subhanaw taala on that day, so what do we do on that day? Well, first and foremost, the intention comes back to the intention from now. Yeah, Allah, I'm going to worship you on that day. Yeah, Allah, I'm going to fast that day. And you know what, if you can't fast for any reason, the prophet sighs I'm assured you that the reward is there any way because you had the intention. And if you were prohibited, by means or by circumstances that are out of your hands that Allah has written down for you the full reward. So I'm going to fast that day. I'm going to observe that day. I'm going to look forward to that day, everything before that day, as I planned
for that day, as everybody is an act of worship, you know, and more other than Jabba Rahim Allah to Allah Radi Allahu taala. And who says in the test, he will Noma T Kyma Attersee we'll call it that I seek the reward for my sleep the same way I seek the reward for being awake. Why? Because I sleep so that I can be more energetic in the worship of Allah and in the performance of charity and all good deeds in the service of Allah and His creation. The Sleep is with the intention of energizing myself. So you know what you're sleeping early on Sunday nights is a form of anybody. It's an act of worship, go to sleep early on Sunday night. Get yourself ready on Sunday night. This a Hoover that
you wake up for. The prophets lie. Some said the Angels send their prayers upon the people as they're doing the support. start off your day with the sufferer on that day And subhanAllah if you think about hedge because there is a parallel Yeoman, Talia, the day before out of the prophets lie, someone would take the Sahaba to Mina and what would they do nothing Rest. Rest. I'm going to rest. I'm going to nourish myself that in and of itself as part of the worship of the day of alpha, I'm gonna think about my dramas on that day. I'm going to prepare with Allah subhanaw taala. You know, you're renewing your covenant with Allah. So here's the challenge for you One major change that
you're going to make in life on the best day of the year, it's worth it.
What are you signing the contract with this Monday? What's the change you're making this Monday? And if you can't think of a change, we have a bigger problem. What's the change you're making on Monday? What are you signing that contract with Allah subhanaw. It's out of that covenant that you are renewing on Monday. It's a day of covenant, not just the day of supplication a day that brings us back to ya Allah, I am going to live my life the way that you have commanded me to live my life in hopes for what you have promised me in the next. What's the covenant? What's the contract that you're signing on Monday as you come to Allah subhanho wa Taala starting off the day with Fajr in
Jamara. In congregation this message it better be as full on Monday at Fetchit as it is right now for Joomla. And to make it easy for you we'll have a Holika after February talking about the virtues of 911 Allah Allahu la sharika doesn't want to call our humble who Allah could you say and Kadir so that when you repeat it throughout the day, you will remember it and you stay till sunrise you have had written down for you on the Day of autofocus.
So make sure you're here on Monday morning in sha Allah Tada if you're in the community live stream is not allowed for you find a way to cut it off for Dallas you need to be here the melodica the hedge is here in sha Allah Tada you start off your day with budget in general start off your day with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala start off your day with the two doctrines of Doha sunrise with Allah subhanaw taala and then spend the day in euro and be certain in Allah subhanaw taala Oh dear Allah we're unto Mookie Nona Bill ejabberd Call upon your Lord while you are certain in the answer don't say hola hola fiddly in * as the prophet slice I'm saying Oh ALLAH forgive me
if you want to or if
You will now call upon Allah with complete certainty in his answer on that day the prophets lie some spent that whole day in JIRA.
If you can't think of what you're going to say, for the hours of that day, start getting your list together. But let the top of that list be what? The vicar that the prophets like some taught us and then forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala the greatest thing that you can ask from him on that day, and then what's your contract? Subhanallah I want you to think about this. All the doubts. All the Hadith about dua being accepted from Allah. All the verses in the Quran, Allah bookmooch Rooney STG Blackham your Lord said call upon me and I will answer you. Were either Salah Kariba, Danny for any Corrib when my servant asks about me than I am close all of that.
How much isn't multiplied by on the best day of the year when the dua is more accepted on that day than any other time of the year? How close are you to Allah, on that day when you make your DUA. And yes, certainty in Allah's Mercy is not complacency with your own sinfulness.
