00:00:03--> 00:00:07

500 La

00:00:15--> 00:00:15

La

00:00:18--> 00:00:23

La La ilaha illAllah Mashallah Mohammed Abu

00:00:24--> 00:00:27

soleimani while he was talking he was

00:00:29--> 00:00:36

already a member. I'm assuming that the brothers on the wall are there because because you actually

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

had a

00:00:53--> 00:00:54

fight.

00:00:55--> 00:00:56

So who was dealing with

00:01:02--> 00:01:10

suddenly, before we get started my topic which which says the virtues of first 10 days of, of the pigeon.

00:01:15--> 00:01:22

Okay, so let me just ask you this because this is like, pretty, pretty basic. What what's the reward for making height?

00:01:32--> 00:01:33

Excellent. Anybody else

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

says I forgive

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

Anybody else?

00:01:43--> 00:01:43

Like

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

how do you know that the reward for hydrogenic did a lot of say that?

00:01:54--> 00:01:55

Yes.

00:01:57--> 00:01:57

Okay.

00:02:00--> 00:02:01

No,

00:02:02--> 00:02:05

no. Anybody else want to try? What's the reward for height?

00:02:13--> 00:02:13

Yeah.

00:02:14--> 00:02:32

So when you when you when you come back, it's like, you're just like when you're first born. Okay. It's when you come back. It's it's like you were first born. And so panela reason why I'm asking is because sometimes we don't pay close enough attention to what's being said.

00:02:33--> 00:02:47

The problem is like someone did not say in a heartbeat that the reward for Heights is gender. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said Well, hi, Alma Brewer, Lisa level design in agenda, the heights that is met.

00:02:48--> 00:02:51

There's no reward for short agenda.

00:02:53--> 00:02:57

Not just height, but a height that is

00:02:59--> 00:03:10

okay, so the word my broad, right, because these are things that you really need to understand. And then we'll tie it we'll talk about the first 10 days just to get the brain juices flowing.

00:03:11--> 00:03:11

Like

00:03:14--> 00:03:19

the word mob rule comes from a three letter root which is what who knows.

00:03:24--> 00:03:29

Okay, play a bit you know, lay some bit button too

00:03:31--> 00:03:38

tight. So the word a bit you know that the i in Los Angeles is what I want no matter

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

what tougher, right? So

00:03:43--> 00:04:11

the hedge that is manure is a hedge that is full of bids. So high is the highest that is full of bids, which we might translate as righteousness and bid has a lot of manifestations. They all go back to two basic meanings, right? So sometimes you look at the you look at the word that you want to look at, okay, what does it kind of go back to? So the first meaning of bid

00:04:12--> 00:04:14

is a sense

00:04:15--> 00:04:22

that you are benevolent that you're tied towards people this is one meaning one broad meaning of ambit

00:04:24--> 00:04:46

and so from it we have like a little while right being dutiful and kind to your parents and the profit idea so I Samson I didn't sign Muslim and Bill personal, a bit personal that that bill, again, what we would normally translate is righteousness, the probably some said it is

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

to have good character, and that's a very broad term that inshallah tada we'll talk about a focus on a little later inshallah. The second meaning of bid is

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

The opposite of an eighth, right? So it's the obedience of Allah subhana wa tada or it's an increase in devotional acts of worship. And from it is a statement of the last pantalla attempt, we're on the NASA bill billion or 10, Selma, you command the people with unbid, you command them to worship a lot to be devoted to Allah while you forget your cells, right? And so, for this reason, what you find is millions and millions of people making heights that not everybody walks away with the reward of

00:05:41--> 00:05:50

Jay, who was the famous student of what's to happen? Does anybody know? Him? And I bet he was the one that said, he asked me for my best

00:05:52--> 00:06:09

to recite the Quran for him and he stopped him whenever he I asked him, What's the meaning of this? What's the meaning of that? I said, did that with him three times. With jack was also a student of him and Omar, probably a lot of the time and, and so he he made hij with him.

00:06:11--> 00:06:56

And he, he said in amazement, because they said it was about 150,000. Project, which, which for that time was a lot, right. That's not like right now, we would say that that's a very small number. But but back then it was a lot. And so he said to the maximum project, okay, how many and amazing how many projects here? And a lot of time and who said, man? I look how few, they actually are called maximal work? Yeah. And you look how many caravans there are, yeah, there's a whole lot of people here, but not a whole lot of people walking away with the reward of height. Now, we're not making highs this year, most of us alone. And if you're sitting here right now,

00:06:58--> 00:07:01

you're probably not going to be making highs this year. Now some might

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

be able to still catch it. But

00:07:05--> 00:07:10

so how does that relate to us and our worship of Allah.

00:07:11--> 00:07:14

Basically, the idea is that

00:07:15--> 00:07:24

you can't believe that you're going to worship alone, superficially, and walk away with the rewards. That's the,

00:07:25--> 00:07:29

you know, some people think that I'm gonna save some money, I'm gonna get on a plane

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

or go to Medina.

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

And then I'm gonna go down to often say,

00:07:37--> 00:07:43

eighth day, ninth day out of raise my hands crowd, and then I said, I won't agenda.

00:07:46--> 00:07:47

Right?

00:07:48--> 00:07:51

Which is why in certain cultures,

00:07:52--> 00:07:58

there are people who have the ability to make heights, he can make Hadley's 25 refuses.

00:07:59--> 00:08:13

Because he has some guaranteed from a lot of nobody else knows about, that he's gonna live until 60. And he's gonna send like, it's nobody's business until he's 60 years old, and then he's gonna make its own agenda.

00:08:15--> 00:08:20

This, I know, some of you may not believe this exists, I'm not making this up.

00:08:21--> 00:08:49

This is real, this exists in certain cultures, where they will not they will make hacks into the system. And you sometimes you go over and you start seeing people from this country, oh, that's the belief that they had, that they're gonna make it until 60. And you're gonna worship a lot. I mean, they're gonna send him cheat on their wives, and you know, all this. And then I just want to make make hats, and everything's gonna be over and we're good. But that's a superficial

00:08:50--> 00:08:53

way of worshipping the last time as if

00:08:55--> 00:09:10

any math that they're actually saying this, but it's like we can we can beat the system, a loss at the system, are we going to beat the system? You know, and the minute that we fall into that is the minute that we

00:09:11--> 00:09:16

have failed to recognize that worship starts in the heart.

00:09:17--> 00:09:26

And that's why even when we talk about this season, one of the greatest acts of embed, that you could do in this season, besides your hygiene, number one,

00:09:28--> 00:09:36

right, the opiate sacrifice, but the last time that I say about the sacrifice, he said me and Allah know

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

what I can do and tough woman.

00:09:41--> 00:10:00

So it was my dad said it is not the flat it is not their flesh, not their meat. It is not their blood that reaches Allah. But it is the tequila, that sense of obedience that God consciousness, your real fear of a loss of data. What did the prophet SAW you saw where did the problem

00:10:00--> 00:10:00

Honestly, except,

00:10:02--> 00:10:05

perhaps like some said at some point have hoonah and tough one.

00:10:06--> 00:10:25

So It's here, it's here. So we're lucky and out of a Tacoma minko. However, it is the tough one from you, that reaches a loss paradigm. So it's not about the superficial act. It's about where it's coming from. And so I just,

00:10:26--> 00:10:30

I think it's important to start with that, because, you know, we have to look at

00:10:31--> 00:10:51

where our hearts are, when it comes to the worship of Allah subhana wa tada across the board, whether it is our salon, whether it's when we get in southern, whether it's when we seek knowledge, when teaching whatever it may be, in, look at the heart, it is very important that we that we do that, and we pay attention to that, like

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

the talk today. So a lot of data

00:10:55--> 00:11:04

is going to be as brief as I can make about the virtue of the first 10 days of the gym. And

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

not too long ago, I was listening to a

00:11:09--> 00:11:16

to a lecture that ship of a man was given in the home. And he was asking people he said, he said what's better?

00:11:17--> 00:11:18

So given Southern

00:11:20--> 00:11:28

right now is the first one the first 10 days that he was about to give us a call right now and give us other than the last 10 days around.

00:11:30--> 00:11:39

So you hear people say Alaskan days around nice. Okay. So what about Krantz who rocks right now? Right grass right now, for the last 10 days, 10 days or

00:11:40--> 00:12:05

so Shaykh said, he said, See, this is why we have to teach and enlightened people and inform them about these 10 days. These 10 days. Many people are not aware of the virtue of them. And there's a lot of reasons for that. Part of it is education. Part of it is because there's no

00:12:06--> 00:12:54

congregational act of worship that changes in these 10 days, like it does, for example during Ramadan. So Ramadan, you come together for totally a lot of times you're gonna come together fifth time. I mean, there's other things when it's a season. A lot of times this season for people outside of Mecca and Medina, it doesn't feel like anything changed. And so that's why it's very important that we do this type of study with one another to to raise awareness. So the prophet Isaiah select from CNN, Center, the Hadith is collected by the mammal McCarty authority is not best for the love triangle. The problem is like subsegmental ama lupia yen of olivenhain he lasha. And in some

00:12:54--> 00:12:55

narrations,

00:12:56--> 00:13:23

he says Ma'am, and a yen, an AMA was solid. He had a Halloween allotment at Alaska. So the problem is Tom said that there are no days in which righteous actions are more beloved to Allah than these tents, which start tonight. In fact, so after Mother of tonight is going to be the first night of the Legion.

00:13:25--> 00:13:28

Which means that the need is on what day Tuesday.

00:13:30--> 00:13:34

All right. So and then, and then you'll manifest what day?

00:13:35--> 00:13:35

Monday

00:13:37--> 00:13:37

night,

00:13:38--> 00:13:40

like this Monday coming but the next Monday.

00:13:43--> 00:13:46

So then they said to the Prophet, I decided to say

00:13:48--> 00:13:51

they said one of the jihad, feasts of Isla,

00:13:52--> 00:14:13

not even surprisingly, some saying there's no days in which the righteous actions that are performed, the more beloved than the ones that are performed in these 10. They said, yo Silva love Well, he had a piece of regular and not even jihad, in the path of Allah. And what happens when, when a person goes out for ga?

00:14:14--> 00:14:16

Not necessarily that

00:14:17--> 00:14:59

he's subjecting himself to, to death, he doesn't necessarily die. But he's putting all of the worldly things behind them because there's a very good chance that in that combat, it's going to die. He's not going out to die, but it's very possible. So the practice of law it was seldom said to them well in geography sitting in that not even jihad, independently, in the College of humanity when I'm when I'm young, I mean that he can be shaved. So except for a person who goes out with himself and as well now he goes out, not only is he supporting the

00:15:00--> 00:15:30

Because with his wealth where he actually goes out on himself, and then he doesn't come back with anything. I mean, he was killed. for that person. Yes, their reward is more. But for anything else, the Ambleside the righteous actions that are done in these 10 days are better than any other days of the year. Now, what does that really mean? Like? Let's pause and think about that for

00:15:32--> 00:15:39

any of you who have jobs with retirement plans, or you worked before with a job that retirement plan? Oh, don't be.

00:15:41--> 00:15:42

Alright.

00:15:43--> 00:16:07

401k. Okay. So when you with these type of retirement plans, what normally happens is that the employer matches the investment that you put into it, right? So if you put in $1,000, for example, your employer matches that with $1,000. So how much do you have in your account?

00:16:08--> 00:16:22

Okay, if you put in 5000, your employer puts in 5000. So now, you only put in five, but the actual retirement plan the contract, total contribution is how much 10? Because the employer match.

00:16:24--> 00:16:29

Like, normally, normally, if you do a righteous deed,

00:16:31--> 00:16:39

last had data multiplies anyway. Right. So if you do one, it's written as if you've done

00:16:40--> 00:16:49

10 to 10, to 700. But in these 10 days, it's different. So now just imagine,

00:16:50--> 00:17:06

just imagine what you would do it Normally, you would put in 2000 3000, your employer, your employer says, I'm gonna match. This time, the employer says no, for every 1000, you put in, I'm gonna put in 10,000

00:17:07--> 00:17:13

was only going to be 10 for 10 days, it's only going to be for 10 days, what are you gonna do?

00:17:15--> 00:17:20

Like he said, I'm gonna invest everything I had, I'm gonna meet Personally, I'm borrowing money.

00:17:21--> 00:17:57

I'm gonna go borrow from other people, I forgot how to pay them back later. Well, I'm gonna go borrow, because at this time, your debt is being increased so much, that it doesn't even matter because you'd be able to, you're not gonna find another deal like that, let's just put away, you will not find another deal. So if we put these things in the terms, and this is not something far fetched Apple What a lovely long time ago, he used this on some of the, some of the early Muslims and he from the tablet. And he said to them, I'll be, you know,

00:17:58--> 00:18:08

dispersing inheritance and the profit of a select was a people came like they line it up for the, where's it and he starts on Friday, because

00:18:10--> 00:18:11

MBA,

00:18:14--> 00:18:17

MBA the profits, they didn't leave behind dollars and cents.

00:18:19--> 00:18:27

Anybody but they left behind, not so whoever took the knowledge that they've gotten a great portion. So he, you know, this concept of trying to

00:18:28--> 00:18:48

actually make things make sense, if you will, with worldly concepts, so that we've seen some panelo, what we really have lost out. If we don't push ourselves, that we lose it out, we don't push ourselves in these next 10 days, then we lose it out. And it's like some of the some of us who say,

00:18:50--> 00:18:53

unfollow us, sorry, at some fault. But until

00:18:54--> 00:19:17

then, opportunity is quick to go, slow to come. So once it goes, don't expect it to just come back around. And if you treat, invest, and our retirement, that we have no guarantee that we're gonna get to Anyway, you put all that money, then you may wind up putting in 100,000, and your boss puts in a million.

00:19:19--> 00:19:24

And you die a week later. Because you don't have any guarantee. But you still you're still willing

00:19:25--> 00:20:00

to invest because of the opportunity and because of the idea that maybe one day, I'll benefit from it. That's why it's time for us to invest in the inevitable, which is the hereafter because we'll definitely be going to the hereafter and if we do what we do for loss of data, we have no reason to believe other than that Allah subhanho wa Taala let you do agilon massimi. Alliance does not cause the reward of those who do good to go wasted effort. And we should have good good thoughts on the loss of habitat and all

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

have been believed that if we do what we do for last time, we're gonna see it.

00:20:05--> 00:20:09

As for the money that you invest in your retirement plan, well, it was gonna happen.

00:20:10--> 00:20:24

All the stock market is crashing, you don't have anything left. But the point is that we need to invest in the inevitable and that inevitable as I mentioned, this, a lighter son of them said, Yes, by all means.

00:20:25--> 00:20:29

That the person who dies is followed by three things.

00:20:30--> 00:20:59

I no matter who I am in his, his family, his wealth and his actions, his deeds, for Jamba Juice, his nanny way of car wash, two of them are going to go back and only one is going to remain, his family and his wealth are going to return and what will stay with him his actions, his deeds, and another heading, which is long and accurate. Where

00:21:01--> 00:21:23

the person in the grave isn't there is a man that comes to him has some sort of a looks good, he smells good. His speech is good. And a person is going to say to him for you. And he says an Abba leukocyte is a righteous action that will stay with him in the grave accompany him when a person is alone. So

00:21:25--> 00:21:51

what we'll do is talk about a practical approach in lantana, that we can take for the next 10 days and mind that he is included in in the first 10 days of that. So we shouldn't forget on the 18th and just forget the fact that that's a very virtuous day that we should take advantage of as well. So inshallah we're going to look at it just a few things

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

that you can

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

hopefully implement in the next few days a shallow

00:22:03--> 00:22:04

let me say this.

00:22:05--> 00:22:09

And, and I think I mentioned this here before, well, no, I.

00:22:10--> 00:22:13

But before we talk about actually what I'm going to do,

00:22:15--> 00:22:36

for you know, the accidently bad use alignment cm and read into prior to the end of the first thing, before you do any of that, the first thing you need to do is mahasin. That is self examination, take account of yourself a lot of data, says in the Quran, Ganga, Latino, tequila,

00:22:37--> 00:22:42

one tumbler national market, demethylating, multiple, or you believe,

00:22:43--> 00:22:49

fear a lot and look to what you have put forth for tomorrow. What's a whole lot.

00:22:50--> 00:23:05

In other words, everything you put forth should be surrounded by tough, tough luck. Well, the tumble enough, so not that no matter the lighting, what's up law again. So here, the idea of mahasin.

00:23:06--> 00:23:10

This, this means that you really take a step back,

00:23:12--> 00:23:22

you take five minutes, for example, before mother today or after today. And you kind of look at what you feel like you're doing right

00:23:24--> 00:23:27

and then recognize where your deficiencies are.

00:23:28--> 00:23:34

And it takes a strong person to really admit to themselves, that I have some deficiencies here.

00:23:36--> 00:23:38

I haven't been praying my salon with time

00:23:39--> 00:24:15

fudger I'm not going to the master, whatever the situation may be you sit back and really take a look at your relationship with Alonso paradigm and your relationship with his creation, because they have rights as well. his spouse has rights. Your parents had rights, the children have rights. Your brothers and sisters in Islam have rights. So a lot of times when we think about worship, our minds automatically go to the ritual acts of worship.

00:24:16--> 00:24:17

Right?

00:24:18--> 00:24:31

You know, am I doing enough reading of Quran or something like this, but not often enough? Do we look at the relationship with the creation of a loss of contact. And so the first thing that you want to do

00:24:32--> 00:24:59

before you get into all of this, you know, I want to fast every day I want to fast your alpha and I'm gonna do this and before you do any of that, just take a step back and take a count of yourself and when I say ticket count, for any of you have done your taxes before for any of you who had a business and you needed an accountant for something, this is what I'm talking about. itemize it line by line.

00:25:00--> 00:25:20

This is what's going on. I'm really falling short here. This thing I'm doing good. I'm going to ask the last kind of data to increase me in that which is good. I'm going to, you know, make the either less fat down to make easy for me to make these things right. And that's the second point. So the first point is more handsome. The second point is Toba

00:25:22--> 00:25:22

and

00:25:24--> 00:25:25

Toba.

00:25:27--> 00:25:35

Actually, you know, though we have translated as to repent. What it actually means is to turn

00:25:37--> 00:26:15

this to turn, right? Even even in the Jewish language in the Hebrew language, it means the same thing they say shuba. And it means the same thing to turn. So what are you doing, you're turning away from the sense that you were committing, and you're turning towards Allah subhana wa Tada. Such that Eliza was always your focus. So when you turn to Allah, that's what that means. You turn to allies, and he becomes your focus. And you're turning away from all of that which displeases a lot of hand attack. This is real.

00:26:16--> 00:26:18

And real tober. Also,

00:26:19--> 00:26:40

if you look at it from from another angle, it requires a slide, which is another one of its meaning. So you you are, which we, which we usually say to rectify. But that's like a word that we don't mean, like, that's not a common word. Normally, we would just say fixing. So if you have a relationship,

00:26:42--> 00:27:17

where there's some disobedience to a loss mentality, you haven't fulfilled some of those rates, then now you need to fix it. That's how you make told me, you mentioned that that gap that's there. And that is that is tober. So when it as it relates to a loss, turns out that you are fixing your relationship with the loss of data. So when you start itemizing, what's really going on in your life, then you'll realize that there are some things that are not right, you need to fix those things, because you feel bad about it, that's totally,

00:27:18--> 00:27:27

that's totally, you feel net them and feel remorse for that situation. And then you work to fix it. This is so without going into a lot of details.

00:27:29--> 00:27:34

So that's number two. Number three, number three,

00:27:35--> 00:27:38

is to really concentrate on the heart.

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

And that is because

00:27:44--> 00:28:01

though it falls under the general category of towba, and making things right, a lot of times we're not fixing the root of the problem. So we're only fixing what's external.

00:28:02--> 00:28:05

I have a problem with someone so so I go to and I say,

00:28:07--> 00:28:19

you know, sorry for how I treated you this deck, this deck and we make things right, it's a good thing to do, right? And you make the relationship, right? But what's the problem that you really had, your problem is envy.

00:28:20--> 00:28:26

And that stems from the heart, and so that that's what really caused the problem between you and

00:28:27--> 00:28:45

that you're jealous of him. Or you're envious of something that he has. And so the real thing is that you have to fix the heart, not just the relationship, you understand. So these are things that are deeper, a lot of people lie. Not because

00:28:47--> 00:28:54

they just want to be a liar. They lie because they're scared about what people think about them.

00:28:56--> 00:28:57

Which is what

00:28:58--> 00:29:00

that's a problem in your heart. That's a problem, which it's only

00:29:02--> 00:29:12

that you're worried about, that you have a enough fear of human beings, that it will drive you to disobey a loss paradigm. That's a problem with tauheed.

00:29:13--> 00:29:33

And so a lot of the external problems that we deal with are actually stemming from the heart. And if a person doesn't move to rectify their hearts, then the other things are just going to recur. It's like putting a bandaid on a situation that needs to be stitched up.

00:29:34--> 00:29:58

And so that focus on the heart as the last parent is a human I am fine, madam whatever, no, eliminates a lot. I'm convinced that day on which the wealth and children and so Pamela they're not going to be any benefit. And many of us, you know, we expect our children at a certain age in life, you expect them to take care of you to expect them to

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

you know, to

00:30:00--> 00:30:15

You wait if necessary to provide for you, as you get older, whatever, they're not going to be any benefit on that day. And nothing's going to better, except for the one that comes to the last kind of data with the heart, that is pure heart that sound.

00:30:16--> 00:30:29

And so that focus on the heart is super important before we get into all of the specific acts of worship, right. And then the last thing from the general matters. So we got number one is what

00:30:30--> 00:31:23

has surprised, which means what? self examination number two is what told them what's told me to turn into turn to Allah and to fix to fix that relationship. The third thing is working on the heart working on purifying the heart. The fourth and final of the general things is, first of all, hello, which goes back to that bit that we talked about in hatch, right, is that you work on character in general. So look at somebody get, look, all of us have character flaws, I don't know, any of us that were real with ourselves, we can just say, on perfect, I don't have anything I need to work, we all have something that we do, that we should be doing better, or something that we do that we should

00:31:23--> 00:31:24

not be doing.

00:31:25--> 00:31:37

When it comes to character. So overall, what you want to try to do in these 10 days is be super alert of how you're interacting with other people. And you can do that for 10 days, even if you had to fake it.

00:31:39--> 00:31:45

Even if you have to fake it, fake it for 10 days, be nice smile.

00:31:47--> 00:32:11

Like don't let anything you know come between you and your spouse trying to make things right, you can do that for 10 days, and then be in the lounge or even carry it over. But the point is, you need to show yourself that you really want to be different in these 10 days. And so you gotta you have to make that effort and the effort that has to be made to do them inshallah, all right,

00:32:12--> 00:32:24

when we want to shell out to the to the specific things that that we should be working on inshallah Tada, and these 10. So the first of them

00:32:25--> 00:32:38

is just a lie, because it is the most important of the ritual acts of Islam. There is no other ritual act in the span that's more important than your salon. So these 10 days

00:32:39--> 00:32:43

if you normally pray in the match to the for example,

00:32:44--> 00:32:48

budget, but you don't pray in a message, or you pray you send them so you don't pray.

00:32:50--> 00:32:58

I mentioned those two slots, because even for those of us who work during the day, usually you can still get to fundraise.

00:33:00--> 00:33:01

At domestic.

00:33:04--> 00:33:07

I'm not saying that it is waiting for you. But it might be

00:33:09--> 00:33:11

is it working for you congregation?

00:33:14--> 00:33:15

Yes.

00:33:16--> 00:33:21

We will we can talk about I mean, you probably need to bring the congregation

00:33:24--> 00:33:47

Alright, so I need I need you to I need you to answer like the full guy. Don't just say yes or no. Okay, because if I ask you right now as a waiter for a woman to pray in the masjid. Okay, we will say that. So what so I'll narrow down a question. Is it an obligation for Muslim men to pray in the masjid? In congregation? Yes. Anybody say no?

00:33:56--> 00:33:58

They'll say no. Okay.

00:34:01--> 00:34:11

Thank you. Okay. So it depends on where where you are. It depends on where you are, if the closest match to you is five miles away, is not where you

00:34:13--> 00:34:18

Okay, so the issue that I didn't say five blocks.

00:34:24--> 00:34:33

If you in general, what is it that constitutes the obligation of praying and

00:34:35--> 00:34:42

hearing the event? Excellent. Okay, hearing the event. For example, if you live in Medina,

00:34:44--> 00:34:47

and they and you hear that you can hear the speakers from the home

00:34:48--> 00:34:49

about

00:34:50--> 00:34:52

seven miles away probably.

00:34:54--> 00:34:55

Is that what it means here in the event?

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

Okay. So it means it means

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

Hearing the event at a normal distance without,

00:35:07--> 00:35:15

without noise pollution without amplification, right. So normally, when a person would stand on the top of the message

00:35:16--> 00:35:23

and call and call the event, the football how, say that you've been here for the distance of about

00:35:25--> 00:35:40

a mile, I'm translating it, like a kilometer and a half. Right? So that's about a mile. So if you live within a mile radius of the mesh, if you live within a mile radius domestically, you know, it's time for salon. Even if you don't hear the event,

00:35:42--> 00:35:53

it is still an obligation for you to pray, and domestic. If you live without beyond that distance, you live beyond that distance from domestic, then

00:35:55--> 00:36:08

the majority of the scholars of Islam would not require you to pray in the masjid. That is, as it relates to requirement. Okay, so what are we talking about right now, obligation

00:36:09--> 00:37:00

in terms of what you should be striving to do, as a Muslim who wants to last Father, you want his, you want his blessings, you want his reward, then it doesn't really matter how far you are away from the master, you're normally going to strive to get there. And the reason is, because the prophets of love, I do have some sense that prayed in the pray in congregation is better than praying individually, by how much 25 some narrations 27 times, that's when we're looking beyond whether it's an obligation, now we're looking at virtue. And, again, if we looked at this, and it just monetary terms, none of us would turn it down. If somebody said, Listen, you you pray at home. I mean, you

00:37:00--> 00:37:02

stay at home and work, we pay you $10 an hour,

00:37:04--> 00:37:13

you ride to the mansion and work, we'll pay you $250 an hour $270 an hour, everybody's going to the master, we need to stop lying to ourselves.

00:37:15--> 00:37:18

Everybody's gonna get up and go to the mat. I'm not working for $10 an hour.

00:37:20--> 00:37:37

And I'm going to work for like 250 to 270. So, again, we're not talking about woo right now or being an obligation we're talking about how are you going to take advantage of the first 10 days? How are you going to show among some talents that you really want.

00:37:39--> 00:38:01

That's the message. And so if you have the ability to get to the masjid, that you need to do your best to get to the masjid and pray in congregation. And don't lose that opportunity in these in these first 10 days of diligent. And then if you need to go back to whatever schedule you want before then go back to your other schedule but right now is the time to change things it's to make things better.

00:38:02--> 00:38:14

So that says it relates to the the obligatory prayers and our Prophet Isaiah select from Sudan, when he was asked which deeds are which deed is most beloved to Allah subhanaw taala the prophesied Psalm says a lot of

00:38:16--> 00:38:21

praying and its proper time. And a last minute dad, it says I'm Karina.

00:38:23--> 00:38:25

alladhina on peace on it him

00:38:26--> 00:38:47

that the believers are the success. First, finally that he mentioned the bottom and those who have Sure, and so on. Those who are attentive and the SLI, those who are mindful, and this aligns. And so, again, we're not just talking about where you pray,

00:38:48--> 00:39:12

what time you pray, but also how you pray. And if you're getting your heart rate can be in the lifetime, that how you pray, will follow in shallow time and being mindful of aligns with your being attentive in your salon. And we mentioned the statement of one of the Southern a few days ago, who said that when he would prepare for salon that he would make we'll do

00:39:14--> 00:39:18

that we'll do is in preparation for salon, a lot of us is making do

00:39:20--> 00:39:25

it's almost habitual. Use the bathroom you make with them. You're not thinking about the fact that

00:39:26--> 00:39:32

the sins are coming off when the what the water, you're not actually thinking that this is an act of rebellion.

00:39:33--> 00:39:39

Otherwise, what does washing my hands or washing my arms in my face has to do with going to the bathroom?

00:39:42--> 00:39:42

Really

00:39:44--> 00:39:47

it's a ritual act of worship. So last,

00:39:48--> 00:40:00

washing my feet has nothing to do with going to the bathroom from a logical standpoint. But this is the Dean of a lost parent and this is how we prepare for a lot. That's how we purify ourselves.

00:40:00--> 00:40:24

For a loss of a job, and you need to think about, it's not like washing your hands that makes perfect sense, use the bathroom, you wash your hands. It's not like that. And so if we can take a step back and really recognize that this is worship, I am trying to draw closer to Allah, you start to do. And then he said, he was standing facing the Qibla, imagining the cabinet to be

00:40:26--> 00:40:27

right in front of

00:40:29--> 00:40:31

imagining that he is

00:40:32--> 00:40:46

standing on the Ceylon, under which is that that narrow bridge under which is Jenna, the Hellfire, in front of it is gentleman behind him, is the angel of death.

00:40:48--> 00:40:49

And so he stands in prayer,

00:40:52--> 00:40:59

prepared to face his Lords with handle, and he knows that he's standing in front of the law.

00:41:01--> 00:41:20

For many of us, it's just not our case. But if we work on it, then Allah Subhana, Allah will bless us to get there. Well, you got to work, you've got to work. And if you take those steps towards the left hand side alone will take many more towards you. You don't have to worry about them. All you have to worry about is doing your part.

00:41:21--> 00:41:26

Like I want on the long side, and who said he said that?

00:41:29--> 00:41:30

What I can do?

00:41:32--> 00:41:38

He said, I'm, for me, it's the it's the concern of just making do I'm not worried about the guy being answered.

00:41:40--> 00:41:46

Because the last time so he decided to pay rent, and you probably won't go down today. And that allows

00:41:48--> 00:42:08

my servants ask you about me that I am hurting if I'm close, I answer the call and the one who calls upon me when he calls upon me. So I'm on the low side, and he wasn't worried about his driving and he was worried about making is he going to have that tofik from a lot of data to make the

00:42:09--> 00:42:49

first thing you want to look at. or the first thing that you want to be aware of going these 10 days is your saliva. And when we talk about saliva, we talked about any other act of worship, always start with obligatory because that's what's most beloved to a lot of time. And then you move on and you look at the new life. So again, in these 10, you want to do more than just what is your obligation. Those five, those are obligatory, the 12 rock acts that the prophets align with some have recommended that proceed for or come directly after those obligatory prayers. So lots of

00:42:50--> 00:43:02

you know, just taking advantage, you may not be able to do all of this and that's okay. But you should strive to do what you can and don't leave off what you can do.

00:43:03--> 00:43:13

Likewise, praying at night, and this is something that is highly recommended even outside of these 10. But especially during these tenocyte in the debate,

00:43:15--> 00:43:20

alone time to say that it took to Soldier Soldier Khun Liang, Elijah, don't

00:43:21--> 00:43:30

put out your lanterns and the last in the first 10 nights don't put out your lanterns in the first 10 nights

00:43:31--> 00:43:31

that

00:43:32--> 00:43:38

was meant to say stay up and pray stay up and read the cry.

00:43:39--> 00:43:49

And so that's also very important that a person you know strive to to do their best to read the bride and these 10 days like

00:43:52--> 00:43:53

the second thing

00:43:56--> 00:43:57

second thing is fast.

00:44:00--> 00:44:09

And a person should strive to fast whatever is easy for them and nice in the first nine days. The 10th day can you fast.

00:44:10--> 00:44:10

Why not?

00:44:12--> 00:44:20

Study Bible about the 11th 11th is not for the first 10 days anyway.

00:44:21--> 00:44:22

That was a trick question.

00:44:24--> 00:44:59

And no, you cannot ask because it's from the AMA tissue. But But yeah, so the the idea is that you want to fast as much as you can in the first nine days. Now, if it's difficult for you just fast and for some people that's not the door to the last kind of data opened up, but still try it on Monday. And then Thursday and then again on Monday which will be your monitor. Right? So at least that way you will get three days and it is the son of the fast three days of every month and those few days do not have to be am days or not

00:45:00--> 00:45:23

magically three days of everyone, but that that was satisfying that. Also for those who have days remaining from Ramadan that they didn't make up, this is a very good time to make them up on not only a lot of time angle, certainly ethnomedicinal significant achievement, he said that there are no days that are more beloved to me to make up the fact that Ramadan, and he's

00:45:24--> 00:45:48

talking about the first days of the hitch. So it is a good time to make up the days of Ramadan for those who still have days remaining from them. If a person again can't pass any of them or it is just very difficult than at least yo modify, at least you know, modifies the profit, I may have some it was sudden, sudden I hadn't seen Muslim

00:45:50--> 00:46:17

accessories while Allah and you care for the sentence and Malia when caught, call this a live summit that I see this reward from a loss of cansada for fast into a lot of fun, that it will be an explanation for the sins of the prior year and the year to come and the year to come. So we should definitely try to fetch a lot of her. And I would recommend for those brothers who have in the Santee

00:46:18--> 00:46:21

or in charge of massage, that should do a joint if

00:46:22--> 00:46:30

for your model. And it just something to feed the people in shallow time and have that sense of community like

00:46:31--> 00:46:33

the third thing.

00:46:34--> 00:46:41

So number one is salon number two cm. The third thing is they could have a lump sum.

00:46:44--> 00:46:54

And here, what is specifically being mentioned is the back of the tongue, though it should coincide with the heart.

00:46:55--> 00:47:16

And some narrations of the Hadith where the prophet SAW Allah it was some of them said that these are the best 10 days but there are no 10 days. Or there are no days in which the righteous actions are more beloved to Allah than these 10. There's a part in some of the narrations with approximately some says for fcvs minute tech beauty with tech media.

00:47:17--> 00:48:08

So say a lot of humbling that Allahu Akbar will outline the law in these tents, and these tents. And we know that some of the companions have been Amato a long time and will go a long, while the long way they used to go to the soup from the beginning of the tent. And they would say a little echo level Echo, Echo Echo law in a lower level Echo, Echo, Echo OLED. And they would go to the marketplace. And they would say this, and the people in the marketplace would repeat after them. Or sometimes they would say the price I'm hearing it not that they were saying it in unison, but they were all making that thicket of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that starts from tonight, that doesn't

00:48:08--> 00:48:43

mean that you started after the silhouette, that's a different type, which we'll talk about in a minute. This is what they call it, just just to talk about the terms of medical terminology is what they call a thicket of luck. Oh, a tick be a lot luck. That is unrestricted time, it's not restricted to any time other than those first days of dedication, meaning it's not restricted to any specific time the day. So, in these days, you might just be walking around a house and alone, alone, alone.

00:48:44--> 00:48:47

You know, just saying that technique as much as possible.

00:48:48--> 00:48:59

And hopefully, your tongue if it is just coming from the tongue, sometimes the tongue is necessary to remind the art and then you start thinking about what it really means the last

00:49:00--> 00:49:01

panel

00:49:02--> 00:49:03

that's a different story.

00:49:05--> 00:49:09

I mean, because really, I mean you can spend the lecture on the law equities

00:49:10--> 00:49:14

play that that is a victim of luck.

00:49:15--> 00:49:26

And that starts again that starts from from tonight shall love because after after Mother 1520 minutes from now Shall we will have started the first 10 days. And

00:49:28--> 00:49:32

then there is what is known as a dictator. I would take the other ultimate pilot

00:49:33--> 00:49:39

and that is the tech beard that is restricted to after salaat.

00:49:40--> 00:49:49

And that starts on budget of your mouth. So on Monday, not two days from now, but next week, Monday,

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

August 20. When, after you pray fudger immediately act to select that is when you're going to start

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

alone, alone, alone,

00:50:03--> 00:50:05

alone alone alone

00:50:06--> 00:50:12

or it is different See, it took me it are different forms of the technique. You ready for him?

00:50:13--> 00:50:16

There's three that I can give him off the top of my head.

00:50:17--> 00:50:37

The first is the one I just mentioned. And that's okay. So let's take a step back. First thing is none of these have been narrated from the prophets alive. So all of them are from the campaigns is no specific form of technique that I'm aware of that has been narrated from the practice on some direct

00:50:38--> 00:50:43

so we do have is from the campaign's. So the one I just mentioned is the one from

00:50:45--> 00:50:51

when you say, Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar three times. Thank you La

00:50:53--> 00:50:55

La ilaha illa Allah

00:50:56--> 00:50:59

one long echo with a Wow, well la

00:51:00--> 00:51:21

Allahu Akbar well in a So altogether this five times when he said a lot again, a la la la la la, la la, la, la Aquila, LACMA William Lane. That's the technique that is affirmed from day one, Mr. What are the low tech?

00:51:23--> 00:51:33

The tech beat of Sandman faricy body alone Tang was Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah Akbar will can be wrong.

00:51:34--> 00:51:35

That's it.

00:51:37--> 00:51:40

So Alo Aqua three times and then can be

00:51:41--> 00:51:44

a la, la, la.

00:51:45--> 00:51:50

That's the tech we'll have some manitex and then there's the technique

00:51:51--> 00:51:52

of

00:51:53--> 00:51:55

best when the alone time angle.

00:51:59--> 00:52:07

You say hello echo Kabira Allah echo Chavira alone echo agenne alone.

00:52:18--> 00:52:19

So again,

00:52:20--> 00:52:22

the point here is that

00:52:23--> 00:52:26

a person audibly says the tech,

00:52:28--> 00:52:37

the tech behind to remind himself to remind his family and those around him that he at work and everybody else is non Muslim, and you start walking around to the law.

00:52:39--> 00:52:40

You got a book back to

00:52:41--> 00:52:42

the Prophet.

00:52:43--> 00:53:00

I mean, be conscious of your surroundings. But the point is to remind the, you know, to remind the Muslims at least, that this is a a season of pain that again, and I think that in the last minute, the animals best, I mean, you look at what Eben oma and everwood

00:53:01--> 00:53:10

were doing when they were going out to the soup. Right? So the S whap. As we know, the marketplaces are the most despised places still lost.

00:53:11--> 00:53:39

So these are the places where people are most likely to forget a lot and be attached to something that is material and, and worldly and temporary. But they're going there, they're reminding those people of Allah, and in that marketplace, where you're going to have a lot of hustle and bustle and a lot of people, now you create a feeling of something being different. And that's the whole point, we need to create, at least in our own household.

00:53:40--> 00:54:00

The feeling of these days are different. These are not like the rest of the days of the year. And I think that's very important. And that's part of the decode part. Because the Select part, you know, maybe your family doesn't see what you're doing. Southern nobody should want to see that. And we'll get to inshallah,

00:54:01--> 00:54:08

your kiosk, or maybe they pick up one app, maybe they don't, maybe too fast, and they you know, but when you're constantly in thinking

00:54:10--> 00:54:33

then for 10 days, that creates a different feeling. And that's that's what we should be striving for. So and so that's number three, bring them back number one, two, and three, you know, my number one, number one was select and select had different categories. So first category was your phone, your phone, where you're praying, when you're praying how you're praying.

00:54:34--> 00:54:48

And then that we dealt with the the weapon trying to increase in the non obligatory selects that you performed. We talked about killall Orion as well. Meaning under that, like number two was

00:54:49--> 00:54:57

fast. And the most important of the days that we can fast from nice. First Night is the amount of fun like number three What's

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

the last time

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

Pipe number four is subtle.

00:55:03--> 00:55:10

And I would recommend that you just kind of think of an amount that you want to give. If you haven't given us a cat then do that.

00:55:13--> 00:55:15

Meaning that some people's,

00:55:16--> 00:55:33

the cat only becomes whadjuk remind them that the year has not gone around except for now. So let them give us a cat now. But charity in general, put aside a certain amount that you want to give away. And then every day you give a portion every day give a portion consistent, again, the southern

00:55:34--> 00:55:36

border, these are these 10.

00:55:37--> 00:55:39

And then the last thing that I mentioned,

00:55:40--> 00:55:44

before we close out is the bullet here itself.

00:55:45--> 00:55:54

A lot of us as a trick from shape, a lot of us look for the cheapest, both here how much they go for down

00:55:56--> 00:55:59

to 25 songs have gone for 175.

00:56:01--> 00:56:02

And so we go for

00:56:03--> 00:56:04

the best a bag

00:56:06--> 00:56:10

that you can do is the band that that is specific to a to a time meaning that

00:56:11--> 00:56:14

in that time, the time of

00:56:16--> 00:56:45

the best embedded that you can be engaged in is the Altair itself is the sacrifice of the end. And it's not about if you if you don't have it if like in other words, if you don't have the money to purchase a larger and a better and less fine purchase, which you can and slaughter, do I have a slaughter that can be hacked, that's fine. But if you can afford more, don't be cheap. It's called a what would what do we call it, it's a sacrifice.

00:56:46--> 00:56:51

It's a sacrifice, you're sacrificing something for a loss, fantastic. Don't motion

00:56:52--> 00:57:02

sickness entertainment, I have a lot of data. He talks about this in some of his some of his stories about the the virtue of

00:57:04--> 00:57:14

spending more for your sacrifice, and sacrificing the better animal. Because at the end of the day, you are sacrificing weight loss.

00:57:15--> 00:57:15

And so

00:57:17--> 00:57:27

if you had the means it is a highly emphasized signal that you slaughter for he up half.

00:57:28--> 00:57:35

And if you do it on the 10th, it is the best because it falls within those first 10 days of the

00:57:36--> 00:57:52

end, if you don't have the ability to do it, then and you do it during the days of tyranny. It is permissible to date. And it is something that is again highly emphasized. And allow us to add in those best in questions about what preceded let's take them national.

00:58:07--> 00:58:07

Yes.

00:58:23--> 00:58:39

We do not have enough time right now have a question and answer because the praise around the corner. So we want to give you a break to make sure to get yourself for the prayer. And after inshallah we will come back for question Is Really? Yes, yes.

00:58:41--> 00:58:53

She's not going over. So after my break, I think we have about 10 or 15 minutes. We all need some break right now. So take the break now. Whoever needs to make what do we do?

00:58:56--> 00:58:58

Forget the question. No writing down.

00:59:02--> 00:59:04

One questions. All right, we'll take one

00:59:05--> 00:59:17

key give us a better example of how you push your money and give it away for this charity. Okay. So the question is about how to proportion of money and give it away. So the answer would have to learn is that

00:59:19--> 00:59:21

say for example, going to first

00:59:22--> 00:59:25

you have extra or you you're going to

00:59:27--> 00:59:38

put aside $300 to give away your nice 10 days. What I'm saying is just take it as spread it out over the 10 days, so that you can actually give $30 every day.

00:59:39--> 00:59:59

And you can either find someone that is deserving, or a message that you feel will benefit from your subject or some cause that you believe in but but again, here's the thing, don't give away 300 and not slaughter. The old here is better. So, slaughter sacrifice and give away charity

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

So the rest of the questions will take after

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

twisted my arm
