seminara Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah He will be a woman Oh Allah Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh everyone I greet you with the greetings of Islam and as always, we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala with the best of all praises and request that blessings be sent upon the final messenger Muhammad and gab de la Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam for Indeed, Allah taught us about the best days that we are, we are in via our messenger, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah gathers with him in general. I mean, brothers and sisters in Islam, we are towards the end of the best days of the days in which our acts are rewarded in the

00:00:36--> 00:00:45

greatest way. Our voluntary acts are rewarded in the greatest way than any other day of the year. And

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

here we start winding down our ledger diaries and this is our ninth installment, and we wind it down by speaking about the day of read and the prize giving this day which Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:03--> 00:01:04

You know,

00:01:05--> 00:01:52

he gives us this day to celebrate him freeing countless people from the Hellfire him raising the ranks of countless people who forgiving countless people and Mila subhanho wa Taala makers from amongst them, he is so happy and proud of those who stood on the plains of out of, you know, sweaty, disheveled, dusty, you know, in the most humbling form, only for his sake alone, they stayed away from matters that were highlighted normally like perfume and, and perfume, soap and so on and so forth. And put the you know, the nice clothes, the normal clothes, the most comfortable of clothes, and, you know, cause themselves to be part of the population, the population of people performing

00:01:52--> 00:02:33

the hajj even though congestion might have not been the strong point. They did all this for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala he is so proud of them. And then Allah is pleased with the honor of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that worshipped him during these days seeking his rewards, believing in his reward, and, you know, taking care for those who managed to fast ninth of bullhead Jia seeking the forgiveness of two years worth of sins. So you know, here comes and we've spoken about also how you know these days are a celebration of the life of Ibrahim, and we sacrifice and we spoke about the rules pertaining to the sacrifice and how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:33--> 00:03:13

was regular with it, it's a confirmed sooner This is all in looking after this great act of Ibraheem alehissalaam and here on the 10th, the believers are going to sacrifice for the sake of Allah in a show of their taqwa. That's the reality that they doing it because they learned that it is pleasing to Allah. So we have this day of lead, and brothers and sisters in Islam. Yes, it's a celebration. But how do we celebrate? We celebrate by building janessa mo. That's what it's all about. It's all about building gentlemen. Right? And you've heard me say this for many years now and some people say it's synonymous with my lectures and my message is this concept of building gender. We build gender

00:03:13--> 00:03:49

by worshipping Allah some more that's how we celebrate that's how the Muslims roll. If I can use you know, useful language you know, they always say how do you roll? Well, the Muslims role by building gender some more that's how we celebrate we don't celebrate by doing Haram. We don't celebrate Celebrate by going crazy and losing our minds and doing that which displeases Allah we celebrate by building gender some more we sacrifice that is agenda building exercise the animal because it's beloved to Allah, we go for the lead prayer, because that is beloved to Allah and He rewards us and that builds our gentleness are more so on each day, we build gender in a way that we can't during

00:03:49--> 00:04:25

other days have the right there's no insula outside of the days of it, right for this particular eat, there's no sacrifice outside of this particular day and the days attached to it and so on and so forth. So inshallah you get the idea at this point. At this point, I remind my brothers and sisters in Islam to look after as many soon as many practices of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam on this day from them is obviously wearing your dress clothes and celebrating wear your best clothes you know, we shouldn't be you know, hold back on the seat. You know people writing to me they asking me about you know, celebrating birthday celebrating the celebrating that the Islamic

00:04:25--> 00:04:33

stuff right, which we don't find present in the sun. So here we have days to celebrate, let us celebrate, get your kids presence, you know,

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

make it extra special. You know, planning surprise, get them nice clothes you dress up in the best way. You know make the whole ambience from the night of eat exciting for them make it a ha you know, exciting where they can you know your kids go to sleep with them having this unique excitement of waking up the next day and make it all about Allah subhanho wa Taala so they understand that our syllabus

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

regions are not void of substance, it's full of substance, right? So make it a special day and look after the sun and you know, wear your best clothes, but them well and teach them that is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did, you know take out that expensive into that perfume and put it on yourself and on your children and God for the prayer and for the females that can attend with the facilities provided God and attend and witness the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala descending and make sure you continue with that takbeer that we've been doing from the first of the hedges, and now we're doing it, you know, unrestricted in an unrestricted way as well as in a

00:05:36--> 00:06:08

restricted way as we've taken in previous lessons, please revise our previous will hedger diaries, and go out celebrate the day, you know, go to the the prayer using one path and Come out, come back home from the prayer using another path. But one thing that's different in terms of the practices of the prophets of Allah, Allah He was in between this eat and our last eat is with regards to our last read, his son was to eat before going to the Eat, Pray, he would eat before

00:06:09--> 00:06:48

going to the prayer. Why? Because we've been fasting. And he had been fasting, the 29 or 30 days before that. So this is a show that I'm not fasting today, I'm celebrating and I'm eating, but with regards to eat would have because obviously, you know it's not after Ramadan. But it's it's after days that we are allowed to eat in the province of Allah and he was limp used to avoid eating before the prayer. And rather he would complete the prayer and sacrifice the animal and the meat from that animal was cooked. And that meat was his meal, his first meal for the day, given the great blessings, of course, that exists in in this if this is easy. And this is something that can be

00:06:48--> 00:07:24

facilitated and possible, then do it. If not, then try and eat after the eat prayer, anything a date, and so on and so forth. Anything that you can eat, because I know nowadays it's different in terms of the sacrifice, it takes much longer than there's the cleaning of the animal and, you know, freezing of the animal and then cutting off the animal and cooking and so on and so forth. And obviously, we all hungry, our children won't last we live in different times these different processes. So just take care of this to the best of your ability if it's possible to delay eating kill after the prayer. Do so if you if it's possible to eat from your sacrifice as your first meal

00:07:24--> 00:07:36

after the prayer, then do that. And if not, then suddenly do a caribou as our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to do what is easy for you to the best of your ability. If the kids need to eat before they praise, no problem.

00:07:38--> 00:07:45

Teach them the lesson. Ask them to try. If it's difficult for them, then remember there's no obligations upon them even in terms of following

00:07:46--> 00:08:21

the sun at a young age, allow them to eat and if you are able not to eat them, let them see you not eating because it will stick with them. It will be in the subconscious and they will remember when they grew up that you know my dad or my mom, they used to delay eating until after the prayer because this was a son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. In any case, we've discussed much I wish everyone a joyous eat a blessing to eat and eat full of gender building and an IED full of forgiveness and freedom from the fire and you know,

00:08:22--> 00:08:40

the receiving of happiness and the happiness of Allah subhanho wa Taala I love you all for the sake of Allah, they will be a good hedger diaries, Part 10 and that part 10 will be related to the way forward after the festivities of the hedger. Until then salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
