Allah subhanho wa Taala has brought us many reminders regarding the reality of these days and how righteous deeds during these days are more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala than any other day. But take note of the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said righteous deeds alarma asylee right. And we understand from this statement, any good deed, any deed beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala is

00:00:45--> 00:01:24

more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this should push push as brothers and sisters in Islam in being more creative, in terms of, you know, setting our aspirations for these 10 days in terms of the plan of execution that we have for these 10 days to ensure that we gauge Allah subhanho wa Taala in so many different ways, using so many different deeds that are beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala now, no doubt, our Salah, our fasting, our recitation of the Quran, our Africa takbeer these are all mighty, but also brothers and sisters in Islam, let us not forget that, you know, being dutiful to our parents, how mighty This is with Allah subhanho wa Taala, raising our children and bringing them

00:02:20--> 00:02:56

you have the happiness but that extra happiness from them with regards to your children, what extra thing can you do during these 10 days right as a parent because it's beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala that you raise your children? What extra thing can you do for them with regards to you know, your responsibility over them and bring them closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala it might be that you already have, you know, a weekly sitting with them? Can we increase that setting? Right? Can we help them memorize a new surah? Can we teach them the meanings of a surah of the Quran? Or maybe two or maybe three? Or maybe a few verses? If we can't, can we bring a teacher in to teach them right?
