Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah, He will be Manuela. I welcome you to our first episode of The hedger diaries. So we handle our brothers and sisters in Islam. I remember and I'm sure you do to our last session at the end of Ramadan, this past Ramadan as we spent Ramadan having our nightly Ramadan reminders and we felt what we felt given how that season of worship was coming to an end. And he Allah Subhana Allah to Allah blesses us with yet another season of worship the first 10 days of the hijab, all praises belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala for creating everything and then

00:00:46--> 00:01:31

choosing and giving a special precedence and rank to parts of his creation over the past. So Pamela, for Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala created the 12 months of the year, and he gave Ramadan, a special rank, a special status and then he created the days of the and he chose the first 10 days of the hedger to be the best days of the year he gave these days, a special rank, and a special status these days are special for so many reasons. And we'll be going through some of them just some of them during our hedger diaries, our series that we hope to run for the first nine to 10 days of this blessed month. It is special

00:01:32--> 00:01:58

because it is part of the four sacred months and we'll discuss this in upcoming episodes. It is special because it houses the best day of the year and we'll be discussing this as well. inshallah, during the series, it is a special because it is the home of the fifth pillar of Islam, the hedge the hedge Suppan Allah, and inshallah We will also discuss matters pertaining to this in our upcoming

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

in the upcoming episodes of our series. But for today, I want to touch on the crux of why these days are special, both for those performing the pilgrimage, and for those who are residents at home, living through this season of worship, and to highlight the crux of why these days are special. I bring your attention to the habit of even our best, Robbie Lovell and whomever may Allah be pleased with him and his father our best. He reports that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that they are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these 10 days. The people asked on messenger of Allah, not even Jihad and striving for the sake of Allah. He said, not even

00:02:46--> 00:03:35

Jihad was striving for the sake of ally except in the case of a man who went out in the path for jihad, giving all of himself and all of his wealth up for the cause. And he returned back with nothing. And he came back with, with nothing. So Pamela, I mean, just imagine the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaching the reality of life to his companions and to us, and they are defending Islam and they are at the front lines and they understand what bravery it takes and how beloved it is to Allah, and how the prize is Jenna. And, you know, the virtues of passing away as a Shaheed. Right? They know all this and they sitting in this gathering, listening to the Prophet sallallahu

00:03:35--> 00:04:15

alayhi wasallam teach them about, you know, the first 10 days of the hedger and how they are no days in which your acts of worship, you know, are more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala, than the acts of worship rendered and observed during these days that your Salah in these days are far more beloved to Allah than your Salah outside of these days, your charity during these days are far, far more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala than your charity outside of these days, your the hour and propagation of Islam and teaching of goodness to others during these days is far greater than doing the same thing outside of these days, your kindness to your parents, the raising of your children.

00:04:16--> 00:04:55

This you know, the work that you do to ensure that you can provide health and sustenance for your family, and so on and so forth. All this that you do for the sake of Allah, if you do it in these days is far more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala than doing it outside of these days. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala he chose these days, he's in charge, right? He does what he wants, when he wants how he wants, he creates what He wills he raises in ranked days over other days, months over the months, create parts of his creation over other parts of his creation, lands over the lands and so on and so forth. of my does this Allah has chosen these days. Allah has honored us

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

with these days has given us life to witness these days. We know that there were people with us

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

Last from last Ravana in the last days of the hedger, they're not with us now. La ilaha illa Allah Who knows where we will be next year above the ground or under the ground. Allah has brought us these days, we have to bring it the same message I said to you, before Ramadan, this past Ramadan, I mentioned it to you again brothers and sisters of Islam, we have to bring it. We have to arrange our timetables, if we have to take time off work, take time off work, do what you need to do to apply yourself for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala, just like you did in Ramadan, increase the recitation of the Quran fast, as many of these days as you can, if you can fast all nine do all

00:05:40--> 00:05:54

nine, if you can't do every Monday and Thursday, if you can't, then every Monday or every Thursday. If you can't, then at least do what you can. But if you The more you can do the better. Why? Because as we've said, there's no greater

00:05:55--> 00:06:33

D deeds in reward than the deeds of it during this season of worship. And another narration, he says that even our best the same companion, he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said they are there is no deed more precious in the sight of Allah, no greater in rewarding a good deed done during the 10 days of sacrifice, meaning the 10 days of hedger and the companions asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the same thing that you know, not even striving the path of Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam replied back to them with the same reply. So, you know, as we were saying that imagine sitting in the sitting and the Sahaba, doing what they're doing, and then

00:06:33--> 00:07:14

they hear this, right? And then can you imagine what they would do after hearing this, that if they know that even, you know, our, what we do now is even more beloved to Allah than the Jihad that we do them that we do, you know, when we go out for for jihad, right? And we do that because it's beloved to Allah. Can you imagine the application of the Sahaba during these days, and indeed, the application was great. Now, you know, this is the first objective of this particular broadcast that do everything that you have to do emulate the Sahaba be excited like they were to please Allah subhanho wa Taala and worshipping with the greatest rewards that when they were taught about the

00:07:14--> 00:07:54

reality of these days, they quickly asked the Prophet about what about our jihad, because that's what we thought was the most beloved thing to Allah. Right? That's how they live, they wanted to do the most beloved acts to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And increase in those acts, they wanted to be the closest to him, because they loved him, they appreciated what he subhanho wa Taala did for them. Let us do the same thing during these days. Let us remember everything that Allah subhanho wa Taala has done for us and use that as a motivation to pursue these days in the you know, in the best way possible. If you can finish an entire program in these nine days, do it if you can do half because

00:07:54--> 00:07:59

that's what's doable for you do it three quarters do it 10 Jews do it whatever you can do.

00:08:00--> 00:08:07

Come about brothers and sisters in Islam come out and come about, you know, try and you know,

00:08:08--> 00:08:38

you know, be as as broad in your worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala do some of every act that is beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and indeed through our time together, you will learn too much in terms of that which pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala. I leave you with this message for today's diary. inshallah. Tomorrow, we will discuss what's better, the last 10 of Ramadan, or the first 10 of the hitcher. jacana Hara Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
