Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah, early hirosaki here Marian Sarah mala Kumar, Lahore Baraka to this historic Appleby for marriage QA. And today in our final reminder, we want to talk about the day of aid and how as families inshallah, who to Allah, we can follow the Sunnah we can have fun, we can celebrate this day that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us. So the first thing we need to realize is that the day of aid is a day of celebration, and that everyone should be celebrating the husbands and the wives and the children. But if the wives are spending most of the time in the kitchen, preparing the meals, then you know, it doesn't really mean that it's a

00:00:35--> 00:01:08

celebration for them. And so, we come back to this, this recurring theme that we have spoken about, you know, throughout these reminders that we need to strive for simplicity, we need to simplify our lives so that we can that we can concentrate on the most important things and we can concentrate on worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala going to, to the masala on the day of aid and praying we know with the Muslims in congregation and then going and visiting our relatives and that we spend as much you know, quality time together in sha Allah who to Allah instead of people being separated, because, you know, the husbands are out there, you know, doing all of those things and the wives are

00:01:08--> 00:01:38

out in the kitchens or in the kitchens, I should say, you know, preparing all of these elaborate meals that are the, what we should be focusing on each Allahu taala is trying to fulfill the so now the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that he wanted on a Twitter, he would have you know, a few dates and then he would walk to the masjid and he would pray with the Muslims and you know, give the hookah and then after that, you know, the Muslims would would gather and they would embrace one another and they would, you know, make do and they would say a couple of La hoomin. Now, I mean, come May Allah subhanho wa Taala, except from us and from you, those deeds that

00:01:38--> 00:02:10

we did throughout the month of Ramadan, may Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted from us. And so, you know, the women also part of this and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Cadiz, the Muslims to bring the the women to the masala to go out, you know, into open spaces and to pray, you know, this pray together. And so the women are definitely part of that, even if the women were, even if the women are menstruating, they attend, but they separate themselves slightly from the area where the play will be, you know, the way they pray will be held. And even then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted him to come so that they could they could, you know, see the Muslims and

00:02:10--> 00:02:43

meet the Muslims, they could hear the hood, and that they could benefit from that as well. One of the suggestions that I would like to share with you in sha Allah, Allah to get the most out of your aid celebration, is to make sure that you you know, you have fun, but fun in the limits of the Sharia. So that we make sure that our you know that we are adhering to the dress code, you know, the recovering of our that we are not, you know, applying, you know, excessive makeup and we are not, you know, waiting, you know things for both men and women, we're not wearing clothing that will expose our body that is tight fitting, etc, that you see through and there's so many other things to

00:02:43--> 00:03:19

talk about regarding that particular issue. But you know, to summarize, to make sure that we are celebrating and that we are having fun and that we are happy in a manner that pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is the most important point. Also, another suggestion is to make sure that you know, our kids are a part of this and our families, and especially our young children feel that the day of aid is special, that the day of aid is a day of celebration. One of you know the ways in which we can do this is to is to organize a party for the children, you know, hiring a jumping castle or something something like this, and getting the kids to play you know, and feeding them and

00:03:19--> 00:03:52

giving them you know, the kinds of feats that they that they love on the day of aid. You know, we are sometimes very strict you know, throughout the throughout the year, but the day of aid is a day in which we can allow our children in you know, a little bit of leeway so that they can enjoy themselves in sha Allah to Allah and really understand that this is a day that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us go out and enjoy yourselves be thankful eat and drink and remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and understand that this is a gift from Allah, if he's you know, we have fostered the entire month of Ramadan and now on this day Alhamdulillah as a family as a husband and a wife and as

00:03:52--> 00:04:29

children, we are able to come together to celebrate the fact that Allah subhana wa tada now allows us to eat again that Allah is allowed us to worship Him in the month of Ramadan that you know we've excelled we we have worked hard in the month of Ramadan to please Allah subhana wa Tada. Now we have this day this day of Adolf Hitler that we can go and we can enjoy ourselves enjoy the bounties that Allah subhana wa tada has bestowed upon us. And the most important thing that we have to remember through all of these reminders, in conclusion is that marriage, if it is done for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala if a couple marries so that they please Allah if a couple are committed to

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

following the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in everything that we have mentioned thus far, then if they do that, then they will be able to move forward and they will be able to live in happiness they will be no regrets, they will be no disappointments, but rather they will be able to deal with everything beautifully. Because the sooner is beautiful. It leads to beauty leads to that which is better, it leads to the best ways and the best character and if we are committed as a couple if you are committed, you know as a husband or as a wife to following the suit

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

Every one of you a face and everything that you do in sha Allah who to Allah, you'll be able to, you know, you'll be able to, you will be able to realize the beauty that the Sahaba were able to realize through the commitment and the implementation of the Sunnah. They saw it in everything that they were doing. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to accept from us all of our acts of worship during the month of Ramadan. May Allah subhanho wa Taala granted the month of Ramadan be a means of every couple coming closer together, that you and your husband are you and your wife, you you know you, you you you come together and that you work together for the sake of Allah not only in Ramadan but

00:05:37--> 00:05:50

after Ramadan May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant each and every one of us the best of this life. And the year after desert como la Heron and until we meet again, desert como la Heron roboticle lo vehicle was sit down widecombe water from A to la de la vaca to
