Sharia has specified to us a how it's not just in these 10 days. It's not just about saying, Allahu Akbar Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah know, in these 10 days we have been encouraged to proclaim, proclaim these,
to say it out loud for the men, obviously not for the females, to say it out loud in the marketplaces, in the places of education when the teaching is not happening, of course, right. Sometimes when the teachers teaching we start shouting, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illAllah stubbings there's a time and place for everything, when the teaching is not happening at the massage it Right, right, this the wheel or these anchors should be announced and most specifically the tech bill that we have these 10 days, which is known as Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illa Allah who Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah Allah, that Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, there is no god
worthy of worship besides Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah, Allah is Most Great, and to Allah is all praise, right? And there are many versions of this, that we're there are many versions, I wanted to share it with you but since time is running by so fast, we'll leave that for another setting with the law hit Allah but any version that you use, as cited by the scholars are acceptable in sha Allah insha Allah. And interestingly enough, just for your information, some of the scholars cite that this duck bead was the takbeer of Ibrahim alayhi salam. And he said this duckbill when he was sharpening the knife before carrying out the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Pamela, what was
Ibrahim Alayhi Salam doing? I mean, imagine, you've asked Allah so many years to give you a child.
And Allah gives you this child. And before these years you lived for Allah and you died for Allah. You are a man of the heat. As a young boy, you did not accept the practices of your father and his people and you searched for Allah. And Allah says, in the Salah, t Juana Suki Rama, Rama Murthy, Lila, Abdullah Al Ameen, indeed my salah and my sacrifice and my living and my dying is for Allah and this is the height of tawheed Allahu Allah has already Brahim Allah His salon because of his so he then inshallah we'll discuss Ibrahim alayhis salam tomorrow in the light.
So Ibrahim Alayhi Salam is given the sun and Allah test histo heat with regards to the sun, that you always put the command of Allah first. Now you have something that is so beloved to you. will this affect your reaction to the command of Allah Allahu Akbar. So as he's about to do something when his body naturally is pulling him away from it, his neffs and shavonne is telling warning him against it, and beautifying, not doing this act for him. He is combating these thoughts by saying Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Allah who
is combated to these thoughts that are Why is greater greater than my love for my son greater than what shaper is calling me to greater than this life and this world and the material well being in financial standing off it. Our y is greater than everything. Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater. Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater La ilaha illa Allah there is no one worthy of worship besides when Allah Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater. I'm not going to fall prey to anything else which is not the instruction of Allah. Allahu Akbar, Allah Allah, Allah.
recite this takbeer this way our brothers and sisters, we know our sins, we know what we have trouble leaving, recite the stuck be when the sin is beautified for us that Allah is greater, Allah is greater. We've declared the Shahada, Allah is greater and to Allah belongs all praise. And in sha Allah Allah will assist you against that certainly the lighter in the lighter. So we need to explain this stuck, we're stuck we're we need to explain it And sadly, it's a sooner forgotten.
And now we have days to revive asuna days in which the X in it are better than all as the X ray Allah grant has the understanding. I mean,
it is reported that even Amaro the Allahumma and Abu hurayrah have the Allah who and they would go out to the marketplace during the first 10 days of the ledger and recite the stock be allowed to remind the people to recite, and thus the people would recite, write in their own way, in their own pace in their own manner or at their own pace. And the marketplace would be buzzing with Tocqueville during these 10 days imagined, who wouldn't love to go to the marketplace when you entered the marketplace and the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala is abundant and manifest. May Allah make us the revivals of the Sunnah. And yes, somebody might say but you know what?
When I go there, and I announced the tech B people will look at me funny.
This is what people say, but I'll be strange. People look at me funny and say, what's wrong with this person? Right? And I say to you, brothers and sisters, rather be strange in following the son of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam then be strange and going against you Sunday. It's how you see it. What's really strange following the sun now or going against it, it doesn't matter what people see a strange, right, going against the sun that is strange. Thus, if they see you as strange, pat yourself on the back. Because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded us to be strange, he said four to ballyhoura glad tidings to who? The strange ones. So this is the second
advice. The third advice very quickly, brothers and sisters, that I invite myself and yourself who is the author, the author,
because this is also an act specific to these days, just like the record we discussed a specific to these days. The
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam mentions in the Hadith, which is he
or if you said in a Hadith, which is so he has reported by NSE been Malik robiola, one that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sacrificed to white Rams speckled with black and he slaughtered them with his own hand and said Allahu Akbar, and put his foot on its neck on the next. That's how he slotted it. Right? So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam slaughtered, and Abdullah Ibn Umar radi Allahu anhu ma said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stayed in Medina for 10 years, offering the sacrifices on here. This is an emphasize student of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it is the majority of the scholars say it shouldn't. But we have some of the scholars like
the rationale for Akhmatova, Allah him this is why Egypt because of how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never left it out. Thus, if we are able brothers and sisters, never ever leave it, if we are able never, ever leave it today, unfortunately, we plagued with a virus. And that's the virus which says you know what this isn't, you don't have to do it.
Where we leave things, because it's
why it's the Sahaba the Marine, they did things because it was in LA, look how opposite we are. And we want the same success. We want change, but we're not willing to tread the path of change. A wise man once said, If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got
very wise. It's a fact. If you do the same thing, the result is going to be the same. If you want change, apply the means of change. If you want to get what you never got, then do what you never did. Right to complete this wise statement. Right? If we want to gain the example that the Sahaba had that Allah bless them with, we need to adopt in our lives the means of Islam. And that is in following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we have a Subhana who Allah grant us the understanding.
I have one Heidi here that I'd like to share the hadith of Bara robiola when he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever offers a sacrifice after the prayer has now completed the rituals of eat subhana wa Tada. So it's from the rituals of teeth. So these are three major advices that I invite you all there are many advices which are general in all the acts of worship brothers and sisters such as sadaqa such as sadaqa, right? We know that, that Allah subhanho wa Taala he multiplies our investment that's why we call it investment. We give $1 for the sake of Allah for yoga hula who, Allah who Allah subhanho wa Taala makes it abundant for us. So we need to
increase in giving sadaqa in these days, this is another way of resurrecting these days and constructing these days. And another advice that I come to you with. Also when we talk about sadaqa brothers and sisters, we know that the Sherry has view of sadaqa is more encompassing than just giving monetary value. It's also encompassing in smiling in the face of our brother and sister in feeding our family and so on and so forth. All these entails sadaqa. So go out and lead. Right, what are the sidecar through our actions and make these manifest during these 10 days? We know about salah and what will make us understand the benefit of Salah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in the hadith of Oban. He says that he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked him for advice, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said assist yourself with many sujood by increasing your prostrations.
assist yourself with many sujood for by Allah you will never prostrate and put your forehead on the ground for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala except that Allah subhanho wa Taala will increase you in rank, Allahu Akbar, you the lower you go for Allah sake, the higher you go with Allah subhanho wa Taala Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, we are maganda is the understanding. I mean, we know that there's something known as the head Jude, in the last third of the night, we know that there's something known as Salatu, Doha, we've just discussed the rewards of the Sunni or robotic, the 12, or aka acts, and we shed many types of worship that we should engage in. And one of the things which is
something well known is the recitation of the Quran. The recitation of the Quran, reciting the Quran should definitely be a major feature, a major feature during these days as it should be a feature in our lives during every day of our lives. A Muslim should never go to bed, except that they have a portion from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, that they complete daily, if they do not complete that portion, they should not go to sleep, right a Muslim should ensure that they have this daily relationship with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, as was the practice of the Center for silence of the pious predecessors before us, right. And when I say a portion, I mean a portion that we
consider a rock. In our daily timetable, Iraq means that which is that which can never be changed, whether we traveling, irrespective of circumstance, irrespective of circumstance, it's something that exists in our day, just as we have the five daily Salawat the five daily Salawat and we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted a great reward
for the recitation of his book, and also of us, Allahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us that a person who reads the Quran, then they benefit from the recitation by earning a Hasler for every letter recited for every letter recited, and it has an A is equal to 10 Hassan is equal to 10. So if you say I leave Lam, Meem then this equals 30 rewards Allahu Allahu Akbar. Such an easy way to gain magnanimous rewards from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this, again, is testimony to the amazing reward system of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And how Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is carried that we practice a little, and He rewards us with a lot. May Allah subhanho wa Taala inspire diligence
amongst us during the course of our lives mean? And during the special 10 days that are about to visit us ensure brothers and sisters that in these days, your day does not go by, except that you observe them. How amazing Will you be if you wake up that day fasting, and you observe the RWA Tip of the day, and you observe the sunlight in the mosquito with the Gemini for the males, and you observe Salatu
Allahu Akbar. And you observed this other card of smiling and greeting one another and helping one another, and giving monetary wealth as charity and treating your families and friends for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, right. And your tongue is moist with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. What will be your condition if you die on that day and Allah subhanahu wa taala accepted from you. You tell me brothers and sisters,
never grant us a death wax is pleased with us. I mean,
brothers and sisters to end off, I want to I want to say and this is important that when we have these discussions, like during the month of Ramadan, or before the month of Ramadan, or before the first 10 days of the hijab and the seasons of worship, and we encourage one another, to adopt these these worships in our lives, these acts of worship. We're not saying that you should be a temporary Muslim, know that you should worship Allah only in Ramadan, or worship Allah during the last 10 nights of Ramadan, or worship of La during the first 10 days of the hedger. We're not saying this oh servants of Allah, and oh, children have it. This is absolutely not what we say.
Because the same Allah that we worship during these days is the same Allah that that is worshiped outside of these days. Is this clear?
Is this clear brothers and sisters. So my advice to you all that from the means of resurrecting these 10 days and reviving them and constructing them, is to build a solid media and intention
That you will be perpetual, with the worship that Allah has blessed you to revive during these days
that this is a platform to jump off.
Right? Not that once it is done, we fall back on our worship, right. And that's why I said start off slowly. But surely, if you can't fast the nine days fast, the Mondays and Thursdays or even just the day of alpha, because from the most beloved acts to Allah are those acts which are the one who have power in those acts which are perpetual and continuous, even if they are small in amount. But they continuous brothers and sisters, right? If you fast the length of the ledger this year, have strong intentions to fast the ninth next year.
And if you have revived these 10 days during this year, have strong intentions to revive it next year as well, as well as to be resilient in these acts of worship throughout the course of the year. Because we are Muslims, during every breath that we breathe, please understand this are servants of Allah and our children of Adam. The other point I want to mention and this is the last thing I'll say, is train for these days.
Don't just enter these days, and think that you will be resilient in them. The person who wants to win gold at the Olympics, he doesn't just go to the Olympics, he trains for four years before the Olympics
not so, this is the same brothers and sisters, if you want to fast in these 10 days that are coming, start fasting now,
if you want to be diligent with your liquor during these 10 days, start practicing the car now. If you want to be phenomenal with with the extra soil, our dry tip and the hair and so on and so forth during these 10 days and beyond. Remember we said not just for 10 days and beyond. Start now. If you have amazing data that you want to make to Allah subhanho wa Taala on these days start now we have a grant is the understanding. I mean, I mean and in your do our brothers and sisters look after the etiquette of asking Allah for the Hara, more than the dunya look after this etiquette. And this etiquette is taught to us in the Quran through the dub. Remember, we discussed the whole topic on
the web last time I was here, through to the bar, we learned that Allah wants us to ask for the Hara twice as much as the dunya.
How? In the eyes of Hajj, in the ayat of Hajj. Allah subhanho wa Taala says
Debbie Cora fermina
Tina dounia hosana
de hacer una y fille
de hacer Neto.
Whoa, whoa whoa sorry.
Allahu Akbar. Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the area of hygiene he says, When you have finished your hygiene rites.
For the Kuru Lucha, remember Allah subhanho wa Taala with all the Scarab, including Dora.
Then Allah says, woman and ness and from the people who make do and remember Allah are those who asked Allah subhanho wa Taala for the dunya but they never ask Allah for the ACA, so they have no portion of the earth. And then our praises the others who make dua, and he says that they are those who say, or a burner, Tina dounia has Anna this year Allah gives the ask Allah for this dunya was the pharaoh t Hashanah, and they asked they make a dua for the F Hara joaquina
and they ask Allah to free them from the hellfire. That's two to one. So the scholars have deduced that the proportion in total
of our drive and the drive for this dunya and the author should be two to one, and they deduced it from this. That when we say well Phil Ephrata Hashanah Allah give us in the era Hazara that's one, okay there are ways the punishment of the Hellfire in the hereafter. So this to do as for the hereafter in comparison to one euro for the dunya Allahu Akbar, Allah grant us the understanding. I mean, may Allah subhanho wa Taala inspire us to be the best that we can be in these 10 days. May Allah subhanho wa Taala inspire us to be the best that we can be after these 10 days. May Allah forgive our sins and protect us from downfall because of our sins. I mean, our sins brothers and
sisters prevent us from achieving our potential. So from the mannerisms of training for the first 10 days is to see Christopher, stock law, federal law, federal law, seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. For when the sins are removed, our potential to achieve greatness is even greater. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us life to witness these 10 days. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us teachers to our families that we live today and we convey what we've heard today to others. May Allah subhanho wa Taala be pleased with us, grant us death while he's pleased with us. Grant has a grave which is a garden from the gardens of gentlemen, and show us our deeds, all the
deeds that we did our good deeds till the time we die on our skills of good deeds on the day of May Allah show it to us will lie we live in this dunya and we don't know that he Allah we've worshipped you Are you happy with us? He Allah we attended this talk today for your sake, have you accepted it from us? We don't know. That's why the person who passes away they don't have it's dead. In our life we live we might have a good day the next day could we ask Allah to protect us from having a day which cancels our previous day? Right? And that is why and it's from the wisdoms of Allah brothers and sisters we shouldn't be disheartened. It's from the wisdoms of Allah that Allah didn't
teach us every time we worshipped him, whether he's pleased with us, or whether he accepted it from us. It's from his wisdoms that he didn't tell us when the knight of power is so that we can continue striving. We can continue striving and we are available loved one is reported to have said in the law facility in the facility, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has hidden two things in two things alone.
And if we ponder over this, it's almost wisdom. So that we strive in both these two things. He says, Allah has hidden our knowledge of his happiness after we worship Him.
He hasn't told us so that we don't become relaxed. We carry on harder. We strive harder.
We ask Allah to accept. We ask Allah for forgiveness to catch up to him. When he finishes the Kaaba. him and his son. What does he say to Allah?
Allah except for us. Except from us. We don't know. We don't know. Look at Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he asked him Yeah, Rasul Allah, if I see the night of power, what must I say?
He says, say alone, but
that he Allah in the car who you love to forgive. So forgive us.
After she fasted the whole month, and she's spending the nights in Nevada, I must ask Allah to forgive me.
Yes. Because you don't know if Allah accepted that he bad, Allahu Akbar. Look at that. This is the wisdom behind Allah hiding it from us. This Allah says, Allah has hidden the knowledge of his happiness after you worship him. Why? So you can strive worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala every day of your life.
You can be the best with the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And then he says, And Allah subhanho wa Taala has hidden our knowledge of his Olia that lives with us. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Why, so that you can be the best in looking after the rights of the servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala because you don't know who he is from the earlier that one day, one day you might do you might be of service to one person who's from the only have a VA and they will make dua for you.
And Allah will make them do the opening of your dunya and Africa cannot be Allah Allah will accept our deeds and be pleased with us. And grant agenda with Hamas Allahu alayhi wa sallam
I love you all for the sake of Allah, everything correct set is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he is perfect. And any mistakes are for myself and Chapin and I seek Allah subhanho wa Taala has forgiven us, brothers and sisters just below head on for coming. I asked you to honor me with your attendance tomorrow. And I asked you to bring along two more people with you. When you come tomorrow, because you have two hands, one person you hold with your right hand and the other person you hold with your left hand and you just never know. Because a dead animal higher Cafe is the one who invites towards good gets the rewards.
For the person who does that good, Allah will reward them. If a person through you does something good, Allah will reward him and give you also the rewards because this is the reward system of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala is Karim barakallahu or Salalah Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Subhanallah who will be having these Panic of La mobium the connection to La La Land, corner to Berlin
