So Pamela that indeed hedges are calling. It's a calling that when you go you're answering the call of Ibrahim. And who promised to convey that call of Ibrahim to us, of loss of Hannah who attack, Allahu Akbar. We have a grant us the understanding. So this brothers and sisters is the fifth pillar of Islam in a nutshell,
a pillar, which is a great act of worship, which Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed to exist in the best days of the year, the first 10 days of the ledger, right now, I mean, all this talk makes our mouth water and makes us wish that Subhanallah we wish we had booked our tickets for Hajj. And we wish we left with our families and friends who we just said goodbye to they have gone to Makkah, and they enjoy the haramain and very soon they will make their way to Mina. Not so, we would, right? But this over this introduction, I bring ourselves back to the title of this talk. And that is the lessons for the resident, the resident because Allah Subhana who Allah is the most forgiving, the
Most Merciful. Allahu Akbar. Would Allah subhanho wa Taala forget about the those who are not considered the judge in these special days? Absolutely not. Absolutely not. And these days, brothers and sisters are indeed special days. And I opened my talk today with a hoodie with a hoodie, which is slushy, or a portion of that hoodie.
Right the full version of that Hadith is that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said mermin a young woman and a man who saw the houfy when I have bought a llama when had the hill am Alicia for corlew Rasul Allah, Allah Al Jihad to fee Sabine de la for call
when al Jihad feasibility la Illa Harajuku, Harajuku LFC he will marry he falam your German daddy cabify Allahu Akbar. Listen to this hadith brothers and sisters, because we celebrate this hadith insha Allah in this talk today, or in the remaining moments that we have in this talk today.
Listen attentively, oh servant of Allah. And listen attentively. Oh child of Adam. Listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah has cited for you and I, the resident, those who cannot perform Hajj during these days, but also la Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam says that there are no days are better days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala than these 10 days.
No better days listen to this brothers and sisters.
If you gave sadaqa on this day, it is the best sadaqa that you can give or in these days, these first 10 days of the ledger if you observe Salah during these 10 days, it is the best Salah you can observe during the course of the year understand this Howdy. Now the Sahaba.
light of Eman is amazing when it enters the heart we just discussed who the Quraysh were right. And now we discuss it with this hadith. And these four However, some of them were formerly from the days of ignorance, the days of ignorance. Look what they say now. They turned to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam into jasola own messenger of Allah, not even striving in the path of ummah.
when Islam is being attacked, so that the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala can be elevated to Calvary understood that Islam or from the objectives of the Sharia is that the Sharia gives an even greater protection to religion over life, Allahu Akbar,
right religion over life
and the value of Islam. They knew the darkness they lived in. So to them, the greatest act was this act.
they said yeah, Rasul Allah, are you saying that actions in these days are greater than striving in the path of Allah? Is this what you're saying? Oh, Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
yes, these acts are better. They said, not even striving in the path of Allah. He said, not even striving in the path of Allah.
That also doesn't beat an act of worship done in these days. But he said, except a person
who strives in the path of Allah with all
Have himself and all of his wealth and he does not return home.
That is the only exception. Allahu Akbar. Brothers and sisters understand this gift that Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed us with Subhana Allah, a great gift that Allah subhanho wa Taala has showered the home of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in these days. Allah he, you know, we say Allah Karim. Allah is generous. Allah is generous, right? But many a time we haven't really understood what this name of Allah subhanho wa Taala means. You know, perhaps in our next series, we can discuss together some of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala have sittings dedicated in Bala he, we don't really understand the implications of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Many of us
say, Allah is Karim. When we make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he gives us something we say Allah is Karim. He's generous. Yes, Allah Karim. And he does that. But the meaning of Karim far surpasses what we've understood from Allah He allies also Kareem in that Allah asks from us when he doesn't need anything from us and he asks from us that which is for our own benefit, Allahu Akbar, that which is so little, but the reward system of Allah subhanho wa Taala is so great, what law he who can reward us as Allah subhanho wa Taala does.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us days, an act in this day is better than an act that one can do throughout the course of the year. Look how great the reward system is. So Pamela, understand this brothers and sisters.
Do you want more examples?
play let's look at them.
Just striving for one night Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards you with that better than 1000 months delay.
Who can reward us better than Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the understanding of Karim that the reward system of Allah Subhana who is Allah is unmatched. So hanabi Allah Allah.
Take for example, the 12 robotic
if we observe just 12 workers.
In one day, Allah builds us a house, which we've never seen, never dreamt of, never heard of engender a place which no AI has ever seen. No harsh has ever dreamt of. And no, he has ever heard of just tougher to rock before fudger before the fall of the fragile at the time of fudger and for a cart before the horse and to rock it after the horse and to rock it after my trip and to rock after Isha chakra can just for these 12 I mean, how many minutes does it take brothers and sisters? Really? How much of our time is required to do this? And benchmark it against what you would need to build a house in this dunya with a workforce of 100,000 people working 24 hours a day? How much time
would you need to erect the home?
Right? And how much time is needed to observe these tough Raka but Allah gives us a home that is indescribable as a gift. Look at the reward system of Allah Subhana Allah
subhana wa he will be happy he subhana wa Hill Avi
just saying these two words. Kelly mahtab
huffy. phyton and Elisa, it's light on the tongue is on the tongue. Heavy better Nila Rama it's the most beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Imagine what Allah will reward you for doing something was beloved. And I asked you by Allah, how easy is it to say Subhana Allah He will be humbly he subhana wa halabi does it require effort? Really, but look at the reward system of Allah subhanho wa Taala and in light of that, understand that Allah is Karim Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
Fasting the day of
fasting one day in the year
and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says the rewards Wait, is that Allah will forgive your sins for two years Subhana Allah Allah one day worship,
two years of reward Subhana Allah
right and we feel the benefits of it in this world and the next
and the like fasting the days of Ashura fasting the six fastest show while after Ramadan, you get the rewards of an entire year.
Yeah Allah we can go on and on and on.
Allah He our heads should stand at our new understanding of this term Karim that Allah subhanho wa Taala is Karim and even in retrospect when we sin and we just turn to Allah subhana wa tada and seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah. Allah says young Pharaoh Luba Jamia, forgive all your sins.
Isn't that generosity from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And again, understand my earlier point, that every act of worship, who benefits from it, we do Subhan Allah, Allah is prescribing it for our own benefit, and for doing that which benefits us Allah subhanahu Allah rewards us with uncountable rewards. We seek Allah subhanho wa Taala as forgiveness, but by Allah we, we are mocha soon.
We are we are weak. We are not diligent in our worship of Allah Subhana who attend and recognizing His mercy and recognizing the reality of his names and his qualities. Allahu Akbar, May Allah forgive us, Allah, He is the most forgiving the Most Merciful, we ever forgive us and inspire us to be greater Muslims. I mean, I mean, so, this is the reward system of Allah subhanho wa Taala that He grants us 10 days in the year
that are better, or the actions in it are better than the actions that can be done outside of these days of the year. Now, I have another footnote for you, because this is a question which which comes to mind somebody might say, but what about the days of Ramadan?
Why are they not the best days of the year? Why are the first 10 days of the hedger the best days of the year? And the scholars of the past have discussed this we have lengthy discussions by Mr. Raja Rahmatullah Holly, and even Cathy hashmatullah, Haley and others, regarding the the days of Ramadan, and more specifically the last 10 and regarding the first 10 of the hijab, and their conclusion and preferred view and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best is that the last 10 days of Ramadan, hosts the best nights of their
while it's the first 10 days of the hedger hosts the best days of the year. So the best nights of the year are the last 10 nights of Ramadan, because they host the night of power a little better. And the best 10 days of the year, are the first 10 days of will hedger because they host the deal of arafa which is the best day of the year. Allahu Akbar. So this is just something for us to take note of is that knowledge which really makes us appreciate the depth of the Sharia, and makes us appreciate the wisdom of the fuqaha and Allah subhanho wa Taala to teach us that these days are the best days of the year, takes a Muslim by these days in the ayah that I recited at the beginning of
our talk today. We have also painter who Allah says oil vegetable oil a national Allah subhanho wa Taala does not take a person by anything that is not praiseworthy, by anything which is not honorable, is not honorable, but Allah subhanho wa Taala takes a person by these days, and the scholars have deduced from this Rahmatullah hear it him that this is evidence to denote
and substantiate that these 10 days are the best days of the year. And the scholars have to say that Allah subhanho wa Taala. When he talks about the 10 nights here, he's referring to the 10 days of will hijack will hedger, right. So this is the reality of the days that we are in servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam.
