You know hamdulillah Mathematica Horner Steiner Horner Schofield Horner to boil a whenever we learn him in shorty and fujinami and say Dr. Molina, Maryam de la Hoefler. mogil Allah for me You little fella howdy Allah, wash had to Allah Allah Allah Allah who walked the hula Shadi color. Wash had an Mohammedan Abdu, who was a law valet he was selling old praises for law we praise Him, we thank him we asked him for his help, and we asked him for his forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allahu taala from the evil of ourselves and the eve of our actions. Whoever is guided by law, then no one can misguide them, and whoever is misguided then no one can guide them except for law hold to Allah. I

00:00:46--> 00:01:30

bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is his final messenger and my bad. First of all, my dear sisters as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah what I care to, it's truly an honor and a pleasure to be here with you all. sapan Allah like, hot girl llama Schiphol. You know, I was, of course, I was scheduled to come even to Melbourne to give a talk at the twins of faith conference that they have. But sapan Allah, Allah had different plans for us, all my DC citizen, just want to take this moment to first of all, just, you know, really ask a loss of pantalla, you know, to relieve the hardships on you, I know

00:01:30--> 00:02:04

what we did go through lockdown ourselves up here. And I can only imagine what it must be like to go through it a second time. May Allah make it easy on all of you. I mean, everyone's different situations, if some people it's much more pressure being under lockdown than others. So I just want to, you know, say that I can really appreciate and empathize with a lot of you what you're going through, and I asked a lot to relieve it. And I asked a lot hautala that he increases your reward for what you're going through, especially in these 10 days, and that's something I'll be speaking, speaking about again, a bit later on, inshallah, um, but I just want to, first of all, you know, say

00:02:04--> 00:02:05

that

00:02:06--> 00:02:49

most of you are aware now that we have now entered, you know, into the first, you know, 10 days of the ledger. And these are days which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us about them that a follow up to a young dunya, a Yama lash that, you know, the best days of this dunya the best days of this world, these 10 days, so we just have to try to grasp for a moment what, what is that? What does that imply? We're speaking about the best 10 days of the year. All right, so it's very important we realize the magnitude of these days, in another duration as well. He said, Ma'am, in a yam in alarm, and who saw you who houfy her a hug Buddha law, he mean heading a yam there is no days

00:02:49--> 00:03:32

in which righteous deeds are done in them that are more love to Lhasa pantalla then within these days, and when the Sahaba heard this, they asked the Messenger of Allah so a loved one it was selling Yasuda law, not even Jihad for the sake of Allah. And the Messenger of Allah said, not even Jihad for the sake of Allah, except for that man who went out with himself and his wealth, and didn't return with any of that. So this is what we're talking about, like, the deeds done in these days are greater than any other time that you could do dates. So we need to realize, you know, you know, to the level to the level that um, you know, as to Panama from the island that were those who

00:03:32--> 00:04:01

said that, for example, even Rajim Rahim Allah He said that obligatory deeds drink done during these dates, these 10 days are greater than if you do them on other days. Similarly, the nowhere fill deeds, the voluntary deeds you do during these days are better than the voluntary deeds you do in other days. So what does that mean? It means that's panela you know, the fod prays that you pray during these days are greater than when you pray them in other times,

00:04:02--> 00:04:12

right the rest of the year, you're young, you're fired. Praise You pray now your fudger prayer you pray now your dog pray you pray now is greater in the Amazon has done that it's greater in the

00:04:14--> 00:04:55

scales of good deeds of Allah, then if you're to pray it at other times of the year. Similarly, when you pray any sooner praise any extra peers you pray during these days, the reward you get for it is far greater than when you pray at other times. The same thing goes for your voluntary fasting like fasting these days is more common talk about is greater in reward fasting, because we're talking about Neff fasting here, right? We're talking about on voluntary fasting because of course, nothing beats fasting the days of Ramadan, right? But giving, you know, fasting extra days in these days, getting sadhaka reciting Quran in these days is greater in reward than if you were to do that in

00:04:55--> 00:04:55

other times.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

So that's what we have to understand that first of all, anything

00:05:00--> 00:05:30

You're doing these days any type of good deeds you're doing these days. The reward for it is greater than in other times. And just want to mention here too, that we're talking even about Ramadan too. This is including Ramadan, kind of like a lot of people are not aware of this. With the exception, though, of the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Okay, the last the last 10 nights from Milan are better than the nights these nights of villager. But the days of julija are considered to be better sapan a lot even than the days of Ramadan Allahu Akbar. Imagine that.

00:05:31--> 00:06:08

So that's why you see the sellers if you go and read the stories about the seller of the righteous believers of the past, when these days would come to them, that would race towards good deeds, you know, praying extra prayers, fasting extra fast sadhaka you know, caught on, and especially number one going for Hajj and Umrah going for Hajj and Umrah panela that's one thing. Now we realize what it's like to be deprived and for not being able to go, like some people neglected it. They didn't hastened to go now you feel the feeling of what it's like, if you didn't hastin and you didn't take that advantage of that opportunity. subpoena law, may Allah bring it back the chances to go once

00:06:08--> 00:06:09

more Yara bolena mean.

00:06:10--> 00:06:45

So that's why my dear sisters, it's one of the saddest things that you know, you find a lot of people are not aware of, you know, how great and how many blessings are in these days. You know, like, when it comes from a don look at the difference. When it comes from a bond people and hamdulillah they're very keen to learn about Ramadan, you know, they go to lessons for weeks, trying to find, you know, learn about what they can do in Ramadan, and how can how can they strive in Ramadan, you know, get close to Allah, and I'm gone. But when it comes to these 10 days, most people or many people, all they know about these 10 days is, you know, this is a time when people got a

00:06:45--> 00:06:53

hunch, and there's an aid, you know, and if, you know, they'll know that you're going to offer a core ban, you know, they know they're not offering a pork ban.

00:06:54--> 00:07:13

So that's why it's really important that we do take this time out, to speak about the virtue of these days, and I mean, 100 of that even will lie in hamdulillah even as just being gathered here tonight, speaking about these days, we're all getting huge hassanal inshallah, just for gathering for the sake of a loss of pantalla within these 10 days and hamdulillah.

00:07:15--> 00:08:00

So let's talk about some of the things that that show you how precious these days are. inshallah So first of all, it's important that we realize that these days, you know, these days are these 10 days or days of immense blessing and Baraka. That's the first thing, right? These days of immense blessing and Baraka. And, you know, it's from the generosity of Allahu taala that he has created certain times, and certain places which are blessed. Like, for example, Masjid head on, it's a blessed place, Masjid gnabry, it's a bit a blessed place, or Ramadan is a blessed time, you know, and these days of religion, they are a blessed time, they will cover as well. And these times, and

00:08:00--> 00:08:00

these places,

00:08:02--> 00:08:31

you know, these times and places are times and places in which a lot, Tyler has multiplied the reward for deeds done in them, like we know, if we pray, pray, you know, industrial hard on, the reward is 100,000, you know, like 100,000 times, if you pray elsewhere, right? So, so perhaps so this is similar to what we're talking about. Now, with these 10 days, this is a blessed time where the deeds you know, you do, it's greatly multiplied to the husband that you get for it is greatly greatly multiplied.

00:08:32--> 00:09:11

So it's a panel, if you think about this, this is truly you know, from the generosity of Allahu taala. Because we all know that not everybody is blessed to live a long life, may Allah bless our lives, may Allah lengthen our lives and make our lives long upon it, let your avellana mean, right. But that's the reality, many people are not blessed to have a long life. And so, if you think about it, it's truly from the generosity of Lhasa pantalla, that he has made these certain times and certain places in which the good deeds done in them are multiplied, far more than usual. So that that person may have even though they might have only lived for a few years, you know, in there

00:09:11--> 00:09:26

might be only a few years upon Islam, but because they took advantage of these special times, the reward they attained for those deeds is as if they maybe lived what you know, hundreds of years, hundreds of years of someone else's lifetime, right. So

00:09:27--> 00:10:00

if you think about it, we know that normally the reward for any righteous deed is multiplied from 10 700 times that's the normal times but in these special times that are filled with biocat only Allahu Allah knows how great is the reward. Because like I said, in the beginning, the Messenger of Allah so long why he was so upset about these days, man in a young in allama, New salehoo fee ha ha Bula la he mean hagino am, that there's no days in which right in which righteous deeds are done in them, but I'm more

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

Love to Allah subhanaw taala then in these days,

00:10:04--> 00:10:25

okay, so, so so panela this is what we have to keep on, you know, reminding ourselves about in these days because unlike Ramadan, you don't have that vibe of, you know, of everybody, you know, striving, like we're doing Ramadan and Sopranos where you have to keep on reminding yourself of the virtue of these days, so that we try to make the most of these days and not waste our time in these days.

00:10:26--> 00:11:09

So that's the first that's the first of things that shows us the virtue of these days. And then, besides that, you see how Allahu taala has, in fact, sworn by these days as well. Right. So a lot of talented ephedrine, pseudoephedrine. A lot of data says when federal Well, uh, yeah, the Nash was chef for a while what's right, so he swears by the dawn. And then he says, well, a yearly Nash. And as the mfah ceiling has, you know, mentioned, they say that this was a lot of data is swearing by the 10 days of HIPAA, in this, this area. And then he says was Jeffrey, well, what's and they said, a sheffy is referring to even which is talking about the date of Aadhaar, which is, you know, the

00:11:09--> 00:11:35

10th human or human law and the L what is, you know, you know, if you knew the meaning of what is, is odd. So it's talking about Yamanaka, Yamanaka, right, the ninth day, of these, of these 10 days. So this is something first of all that shows us the virtue these days, because Allahu taala does not swear by anything, except it's something great.

00:11:36--> 00:12:18

All right. Another thing also that shows us the virtue of these days, is that Allahu taala shows these days as the days of Hajj, and making, you know, making pilgrimage to his house. So from all the days of the year, a lot of data shows these days, as the days of hedge. And that's why subpoena law during these days, we normally find you know, millions of people coming from all over the world, making that journey of a lifetime to beta law. And we ask a lot hautala that he helps us all to have the chance to visit his house soon. panna Subhan Allah we ask a lot of tada that very soon everything you know, this virus will be lifted from this earth. And it will be you know, as part of

00:12:18--> 00:12:25

cure will come so that we can all go back to going for Hajj going for aamra visiting the house of a loss of pantalla your Atlanta mean?

00:12:27--> 00:12:34

Okay, another thing that shows us the virtue of these days, is that Allahu taala, from from amongst these days.

00:12:36--> 00:12:51

Um, Subhan Allah is the Dave arafa. Right, the Dave arafa and what's called Yeoman. So, first of all the day I thought the day of alpha is the day in which Allahu Allah frees more people from the fire than in any other day.

00:12:52--> 00:13:18

And as for Yama, na This is the day of sacrifice, which we also call a Lada for us, who didn't go to Hajj is called a lotta but for the judge, it's called Yeoman. Right? So that's the day when the judge sacrificed their base, you know, the sacrificial animals are done on this day, the heady you heard of the heavy, it's the sacrificial animal. And for those in hajj, they have to do a sacrificial animal, most of the ones who do Hajj, right.

00:13:19--> 00:13:58

So what makes this day of not the greatest of all days is due to all of the different types of worship that are performed on this day, which you don't find in any other time of the year because if you've ever been for Hajj, and if you haven't, I asked the Lord to help you to go very soon. But if you go to HUD, you know that on this day, all the major acts of worship are done on on this day, the 10th which you know, they cut the whole judge come back from, they come back from Delhi far they go to stone that you know, the Gemini, the Gemini, they go and make follow up and say and they, they that you know this, as I said, the haddie is sacrificed. There's the cutting and shaving of the

00:13:58--> 00:14:40

hair, and then there's the technical arts, you know, saying Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar there Isla de la Allahu Akbar, wa ala humped. So this is this is, you know, this is what this day is about. Besides that, as we know, in where we are as residents, with, you know, a lot of hours a day of the footbaww a day of the tech burrata day of prayers a day of uni, we go to do the aid prayer, I mean, and sadhaka and we, you know, we do the odd here and so, so all these different acts of worship are happening on this day. All right, so this shows you this is trying to I'm just trying to give you the idea of how precious these days are and some of the reasons why they are so

00:14:40--> 00:14:41

significant.

00:14:42--> 00:15:00

So what I'm going to talk about now in Charlotte is what to do on these days. Okay, this is a very important thing for us to know what to do on these days. So the most important thing, my dear sisters, as far as what to do on these days, is to just focus on venerating a loss to pantalla and glorifying

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

Allah subhanaw taala as much as you can in all of your deeds and actions, that's what these days are about. It's about glorifying and venerating Allah Subhana Allah

00:15:11--> 00:16:04

because in regards to these days the prophets that Allah has to them he said, Ma'am in a yameen are more in the law there's no days which are greater in the sight of a law. Well, I have boo la llama roofie nam in heavy am alash nor are there any days which are more loved to him than those done in these 10 days. For actigraphy Hina minetta leelee What tech bt what they need, so increase in these days insane at Lille, which is saying La ilaha illAllah what tech beer which is saying Allahu Akbar what the mead which is saying Alhamdulillah right, so we're supposed to feel these days. With let Allahu Allah Allahu Akbar Al Hamdulillah. All right. Um, so this is all why do we say these words?

00:16:04--> 00:16:09

Why do we say these words, it's all about venerating a lot of that glorifying Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:10--> 00:16:45

Okay, so in general, the idea of these days is to do all kinds of good deeds in general. But in particular, you focus on glorifying glorifying and venerating Allah subhanaw taala, as much as you can. And that's why we see that, you know, there are certain narrations about for example, on murder in Abu Abu hurayrah radi Allahu anhu Ma, how they, you know, used to go into the marketplaces during these days, and they would recite the tech barotz, right? Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La Ilaha, Illallah Allahu Akbar, well, Illa Hill hunt.

00:16:47--> 00:17:12

And so panela when they would do that the people in you know, who were in the market would also begin to make tech beer with them. And imagine that this place, which people usually, you know, what, what's the supermarket like for you? You know, it's a place where people only think about dunya, right? They only think about the worldly things. But at that time, imagine that through the everybody remembering a lot in the marketplaces, the marketplaces would become alive with a decree of a loss of cansada

00:17:14--> 00:17:39

Okay, so that that's why you know, from now until the end of these 10 days, like I'm saying, try to fill your your time and days with the dicover, Lhasa pantalla and you'll see how makes you happy Subhan Allah like, you might be knocked down now. But if you go around your house saying Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, la la la la Allahu Akbar, Allah He you'll feel your emotions, your comforts you and you feel it lifts you up Subhan Allah, it lifts you up.

00:17:41--> 00:18:17

Now of course, the other thing I should mention here too, is that the greatest of all because of course is recitation of the Quran. Okay, so just like you know, you tried to read as much Quran as you you know, as you could when you're in Ramadan. You should also try to make a program for yourself during these 10 days so that you can spend as much time reciting Quran as you can so the same way Yanni the way you should approach these days basically is exactly almost the same way that you approached Ramadan you have your program for you Even you can implement pretty much implement the same program you're doing Ramadan and think this is like a mini Ramadan because Ramadan is like

00:18:17--> 00:18:21

30 days and this is like 10 so it's like you know, it's like a little mini Ramadan you're doing again

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

and

00:18:25--> 00:19:01

you know, from the other arm most important actions that we should, you know, which is really recommended to begin these days with is to do since you tober to Lhasa panda like just like you know when in Ramadan. You made that Toba, you repented back to Allah subhanaw taala. It's very recommended to do that in these days. And don't forget Toba as well. It's an act of worship. When you make Toba to Allah when you ask a local tala since cities repent for forgiveness, that's actually an act of worship as well. It's not just it's not just that you're pinching doctor a lot. It's even counted as an activity Badar Subhan Allah from the generous generosity of a Lhasa

00:19:01--> 00:19:40

pantalla. Right. So it's very recommended to make Toba. And the reason I say that is because think about Toba is like a door. Right? That once you humble yourself to Allahu taala, and you ask him for forgiveness, you see how Allah depends on his shoulder opens up the way for you to achieve every type of hired and righteous action. Be in a like, you know, you feel your heart is guided towards wanting to strive for a lot in the era and to you know, you feel encouraged to want to do good deeds, because often, you know, it's the burden that we're carrying on our hearts, you know, those blackness that build up on the heart that, you know, somehow like it, you know, prevents us from

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

wanting to

00:19:42--> 00:20:00

strive for the good and wanting to do our best in these days. So we want to we want to lift, we want to lift, you know, what's on our hearts in order to, you know, receive the data from a lot received the, you know, guidance from a lot of pantalla and that's why it's very, you know, it's very recommended to start these 10 days.

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

With Toba. So that level kind of gives this tofield a low dollar gives us success in Sharla in these 10 days.

00:20:08--> 00:20:46

Another advice as well for these, you know, 10 days is, you know, just even focus on perfecting your font dates. Like maybe you're going through a really hard time right now and you're struggling even just to do your basics. Maybe you're really busy and you haven't got a lot of time to do extra deeds, but at least focus on perfecting your five deeds because what did I say earlier I said to you, like we mentioned that you know, the fod deeds done in these days are greater in reward, then if you do them on other days. Okay, and like I said to the sooner deeds done in these days, are greater in reward than done on other days. And also, it's important to remind yourself of something

00:20:46--> 00:21:28

that Allahu taala mentioned in a hadith Cuzzi like aloud to the messenger of a loss that alone is and tells us that Allahu taala has said, That woman's a quarterback, Ella DB Shay in a hub de la and ministered to LA, that my surgeon does not come close to me with anything that is more love to me than what I have made obligatory upon him. Like everybody wants to get close to a law, right? Everybody wants to get close to a loved one says I love a law. And then when you get close to a law, but you can't choose a way to get close to a law, you have to see how does a law want you to get close to him. So this is the path, my dear sisters, to get close to a law, you have to start with

00:21:28--> 00:21:34

the obligatory actions first, then you add on the voluntary actions after that.

00:21:35--> 00:22:09

And this is a mistake that a lot of people might do. Like, they might focus on doing a lot of voluntary deeds, like giving extra sort of car and you know, community work, for example, something like that. And that's all really good. And it's all rewardable no doubt, right? But if it's causing you to neglect your fonts, where you know, you don't even bother, being careful about you know, praying your prayers on time, for example, your father, then you need to go back and look, you know, how you sort of got your priorities out of order. All right. So it's very important that we get our priorities straight, if we want to really, you know, be solid in our Deen and get close to a loss of

00:22:09--> 00:22:21

hands Allah, okay, because, you know, you can have someone who, for example, doing a lot of the code, for example, which is, of course really good too, but, you know, but the same person doesn't worry if they miss praying their prayers on time, or they just miss prayers altogether.

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

Okay, so that's what I'm saying. In these days, in particular, start new habits or habits for yourself, where you put your priorities in order and realize that really, the only way to get close to a light is starting off with your family, you know, so we solidify your foundation first with your fun things. And then building on that with your you know, Noblesville actions, your extra actions. And so, you know, if, as I said, if you're not able to do those extra actions, just focus on perfecting your five prayers, you know, slow down, try to really, you know, enjoy your prayer, try to realize this is your time, just to slow down and to think about a line that in the air here

00:22:59--> 00:23:15

or pray them on time. Try to pay them on the beginning of the time because you know, that's from the most beloved deeds to Allah as well as Allah to Allah walk the hare. The prayer, it's time is from the most loved deeds to Lhasa pounds Allah as well. Okay.

00:23:18--> 00:23:47

And besides that, if you if you haven't paid your car yet, you know, maybe you're late in paying your car or you've got missed fasts from Ramadan, this is the best time for you to make up for those obligations upon you, right make up for those obligations. It's even mentioned about Ahmadi Allahu anhu that he loved to make up any fasts from Ramadan in these 10 days. Well, of course, you can't fast the 10th I should mention, but especially the first eight, you could make up your

00:23:48--> 00:23:53

you could make up your five fasts in these in these days.

00:23:55--> 00:24:08

Okay, so then I'll come to the next point, which is, from the other ways of getting close to a loss of pantalla in these days is, you know, fasting these days, we know that the Messenger of Allah sort of long ago said I'm used to fast the first nine days of villager

00:24:09--> 00:24:44

and like I said, it's not of course allowed to fast the 10th because it's a lot harder and it's not too fast on eight of course, but you know, if for any reason, you're not able to fast the first eight days because sometimes you might be you know, maybe you're pregnant or you know, it's just you're working and you're really tired or something like that, try your best not to miss the ninth because of the you know, huge reward for fasting the day but I prefer which the prophets that are longer said and said that, you know, whoever fasts The day will have their sins forgiven for you know, the previous in the coming years upon a loss. So this is, this is why it's highly recommended

00:24:44--> 00:24:48

to fast the dead out offer due to you know, how much reward is in it.

00:24:51--> 00:24:58

Another another of the best deeds to focus on in this in these days as well is to offer the odd here are the core ban.

00:25:02--> 00:25:37

And in general, I just want to mention to here that, you know, offering an ode here or core ban is considered a suitable academic, it's considered a confirmed. So now, for the head of the household, to offer, you know, a sacrifice on behalf of his family, as long as he can afford it, I say he because usually, it will be the, the husband, but you know, just say, a mother, you know, just single single mother, if she's got the money, and she's got the ability, she can do that. It's not I want to mention that, um, the more correct opinion, it's not like I'm considered to be a wedgie. But it's definitely something highly emphasized. And

00:25:38--> 00:25:47

so it's something I would really urge everybody to to do, because it's something from is you know, this, you know, it's considered one of the, you know, the rights of Islam.

00:25:48--> 00:25:57

So the only one who wouldn't want to do it is somebody who, you know, this really struggling and they don't really have the money to finances to do that, that's perfectly fine. Okay, they shouldn't feel pressured to do it as well.

00:25:58--> 00:26:36

Um, but I just want mentioned here too, even if your husband was offering a quarter ban, this, she, if you have your own money, if you have your own money, you know, you've got enough money of your own, you can consider to offer a code ban on behalf of yourself. Okay, and anyone else you want to include, like, you can include other people in the reward. So you might want to do a call to ban on behalf of yourself and for example, your parents, even if it passed away, you can do it on behalf of yourself and your deceased parents, for example, you want to, you know, like, sidecar for them or you know, even your children alive, whether they're alive or passed away, because the Messenger of

00:26:36--> 00:26:50

Allah sort of lives and he's to say, a llama head I need what an elevator like when he would do a sacrifice, he would say this is on behalf of myself and those of my household. So and that included those who had passed away like Khadija radi Allahu anhu.

00:26:52--> 00:27:02

And especially now we've done some harm on his time of COVID, you know, you're gonna under, obviously, we understand that, you know, a lot of people around the world are like, you know, struggling to find food.

00:27:04--> 00:27:40

So, Pamela, that's why, you know, it's from the greatest of righteous deeds, especially in these days, to offer, you know, the sacrifice for the sake of a law because it's going to help provide me for, you know, people who may only get to eat meat once or even, you know, once a year or even this. So I'd say that, you know, this year, more than other years, I'd really urge most people to think of this, you know, really consider doing this and like the SEC, this is a sacrifice for the sake of a law that, you know, it is a way of Ranson in your soul from the Hellfire I want to mention as well, because it's considered like that you're doing that sacrifice. And, you know, you're asking a lot of

00:27:40--> 00:27:42

pantalla to,

00:27:43--> 00:27:49

you know, whether you're asking last patala to, you know, make you from those who are saved in Sharla.

00:27:51--> 00:27:54

You know, and it's like you're renting, I mean, like, rents are doing that sacrifice as well.

00:27:55--> 00:27:56

For that sake.

00:27:58--> 00:28:20

Okay, just want to come to the next point, which is, you know, I really advise everybody in trolling myself, of course, just to pay special attention to the data out of you, right, don't just think it's only for the judge, because the messenger of a loss at a loss and he tells us that this is a day on which a lot of data frees more people from the fire than any other day.

00:28:21--> 00:28:40

So, if any one of you if any of you have been to Hajj before you know that this is a day when the Hojo or in the plains of Africa, and Subhanallah you see them, you know, crying to a loss of pantalla, begging, begging almost pantalla for his forgiveness, you know, you see them humbling themselves to Allah subhanaw taala making as much dry as they can.

00:28:41--> 00:29:08

And this is the day as well as mentioned in a hadith the Muslim, that Allahu taala descends to the lowest heaven in the way that befits His Majesty and perfection. And he expresses his pride to the melodica to the angels, about those who are gathered in the plains of Africa. You know about how much they are asking, sincerely. They are asking a lot sincerely for Jana, and they're, you know, they're begging Allah subhanaw taala for his forgiveness and to free them from the fire.

00:29:09--> 00:29:34

So that's why it's from the best from the best things that you can do in these 10 days is to focus especially on the day of arafah so how do you do that? Number one, try to fast the dev arafa like you know, that's it if you can't get that first eight days at least don't miss the dev alpha. And number two is especial sooner that starts on the dev file and I mentioned it starts after every like when you pray your fudger prayer live or after

00:29:35--> 00:30:00

you start after saying a stop for a lot of stuff for a lot of stuff for a lot. Aloma allama, enter Salaam amin casa, learn about Optio the journey where the Quran then you see it and you say a lot like but a lot about Allahu Akbar, learn Illa Illa Allah Allah Akbar, Allahu Akbar while you learn to hunt, right? So you sit and say that after your prayers and then you continue to do that after

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

Every fog pray during the day of arafah.

00:30:04--> 00:30:05

During the day I eat

00:30:07--> 00:30:09

the next day, which is from the days of tissue.

00:30:11--> 00:30:20

So the day after eat the next day after eat and the next day until the last like the third day after eight after and you get to the answer, you get to the answer prayer.

00:30:21--> 00:30:29

And you say it for that other prayer the third day after eight and that's it, you don't do it anymore after that. Okay, so this is another sooner that starts on

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

on the day of arafah.

00:30:32--> 00:31:15

And then besides that, you know, just spend your day doing lots of liquor reciting Quran, other types of good deeds make you cooking for other people like cooking your dinner for your family, you know, to break the fast of those who are fasting, you know, to feed the fasting. So Dakar, whatever good deeds you can do on this day of arafah but try as much as you can, like, after essential Maghrib try your best to sit alone and make a lot of drama. Okay, because this is a day when drama is more likely to be answered than other than than any other day. Okay, in particular, and in the closer you get towards magary that's, you know, that's, that's the time to really be making that

00:31:15--> 00:31:56

draw. So it's not just for the for judge this draw is not just for the judge, as scholars had mentioned, and the messenger of a loss of loss and he says hydral do i do i do i Yomi arafa Okay, that the best do is to draw on the day of arafah so it shows that it's one of the times to get your diet accepted, like little cutter, we know that metal cutter is a time to get your diet accepted and same with the Dave arafa It's a time to get your doctor accepted you have more chance of having a drug accepted. So you know it's really the best time for you to for example, make Dwyer ask a little toddler to bless you with Hutch if he has brush you haven't been really a big Allah y'all are make

00:31:56--> 00:31:57

the way for me to go to Hutch

00:31:58--> 00:32:41

and ask about Allah to cure all the sick Muslims and of course to live this affliction of Coronavirus you know and relieve the hardship from all our brothers and sisters around the world. Okay, but one thing which is important to mention here too is that the best drawers to say on this step out of FDA is something that prophets that allowed us and taught us to say I'll say it and inshallah if you need it after we can. I can try to send it to you. La ilaha illallah wa de vous la sharika lah hula hula hula humped wahoo Allah Cooley Shea in Kadir Okay, say this dry and I don't mean just to say these two at once. I mean, say it over and over again in the dove alpha. Now Isla

00:32:41--> 00:32:53

Halo la wa de hula should ecola level molk hula hula hump wahala Cooley Shane codere repeated over and over and over again get tired with saying it's panela This is a la loves this to actually sit on the desk.

00:32:55--> 00:33:34

And like I said as well before. This is a time also to make Toba to Allah, all of us. It's not like only the people who feel they've got sins to make tober know, everybody should try to make tober on the dev RFR right because the prophets that alarmism told us that alar freeze more people from the fire on this day than any other day. And the scholars have taught us this is not restricted only for those Hajj rather than if somebody was in their house and they sincerely you know repented to Allah subhanaw taala on this day, a law could reward them with being saved from the fire just as He rewards those on artifact in hajj. That's from the generosity of Allah we shouldn't limit a loss

00:33:34--> 00:33:37

generosity. All right, we shouldn't limit laws generosity,

00:33:38--> 00:33:48

because he's not like us. You know, as the law says, Lisa can be the shape. What was what who were who has Samuel bossy, right? A little tighter, you know, there's nothing

00:33:49--> 00:33:56

you know, nothing can be compared to a Lhasa pantalla. And, you know, Panama, so we shouldn't try to compare him to ourselves.

00:33:59--> 00:34:05

And lastly, don't forget doing good deeds on the 10th day of the hedger as well.

00:34:06--> 00:34:49

Okay, because a lot of people don't realize that a lot her is included from being amongst these 10 days. So that's why, you know, even if, you know, remind yourself that you know, even if you have to pray a prayer at home, which most likely if you're in Melbourne, it looks like there's probably what's going to happen you know, if you have to pray they pray with your family at home, you know, don't miss out on performing it because they're the reward in praying it you know, as I said that a lotta is still the from the 10 days. So, try to focus on doing those actions of eight that are going to give you those that has done that, okay, on this 10th day, which is love to Allah, right. So, you

00:34:49--> 00:35:00

know, getting a car on this day and saying the tech of your art of aid that you normally say, you know, I know it's it's not easy, being at home free but like, you know, just make the most of it. That's all I can suggest. Just

00:35:00--> 00:35:22

Make the most of it, you know, do the tech be right the way you were doing it, as I said, the tech beer does chew you up, it does bring Alhamdulillah happiness into the house. And you're listening to the hotel as well like, turn on the radio or the you know, online, on Facebook, wherever, you know, wherever they book the hook by going and listen to it, there's a rewarding listening to the football, like listening to that reminder.

00:35:23--> 00:35:51

And then, of course, very importantly, in something that, you know, something's very emphasized on eight is, you know, maintaining the blood ties. So if that means having a zoom, having a zoom meeting with your, you know, your blood relatives, and, you know, wishing them ate more bar, I can, you know, you do that, you know, we've got to make the most of the situations panela we have to learn to, to find other ways of, you know, going around everything and making, you know, getting the best out of it, no matter what our situation.

00:35:52--> 00:36:06

And saying we'd like, if you've had some sort of disagreement with someone, you know, eight is not the time for having grudges, or, you know, holding grudges, or feeling having bad feelings towards each other, like, it's a time for forgiveness as a time for

00:36:08--> 00:36:46

reconciliation, you know. And then another thing too, is, it's very important to that, we do try to practice the best of luck with our families, especially on aid, right, you do that for the sake of a loss of pantalla. And, you know, we got to realize that, you know, Islam is not just acts of physical bad that Islam is not just a religion of, you know, prayers and fasting and hydrogen, and Zika, you know, we know that, you know, it's them as a dean of wama, which means, like, it's a de, you know, the religion of religion of, you know, interaction, it's a religion of interaction and how to have a look how to have character how to have manners with others.

00:36:47--> 00:37:17

And, you know, and supply you realize, you know, what Islam teaches us is that, you know, having a beautiful, making your character beautiful for the sake of Allah, you know, being happy, showing happiness smiling in the faces of, you know, your husband, your children, your mother, your father, that's rewardable for us, panela even just that small thing of smiling, or just being kind or just, you know, being generous, you know, being being patient, you know, being happy on aid for the sake of, of trying to make everybody else happy inshallah, and especially on aid, right.

00:37:18--> 00:37:26

And we know that the one who has good manners, like a lottery was the one who has good manners, like the one who is in a state of constant prayers and fasting.

00:37:27--> 00:37:31

So, nothing is nothing is overlooked by a lot of hands, Allah.

00:37:33--> 00:38:09

And that's why, you know, especially on aid, especially when we're going through these struggles, right now, I think it's, it's very, very important that, you know, even if we're going through these struggles, especially for the kids, it's, you know, it's very important that we try to make the best, the best we can, you know, make it as beautiful as we can. And, honestly, when you got us truth is, kids don't need a lot, but what they'll love is just our happiness are trying to be trying to be happy, and they expect you to be perfect, but, you know, just try to be in a good mood on a try not to have arguments with anybody on a try to, you know, create that nice environment, that

00:38:09--> 00:38:20

peaceful environment in the house, you know, we all know what, you know, especially us, you know, we can inshallah we can make or break the mood, just kind of lost. So,

00:38:21--> 00:38:25

anyway, but, you know, I just want to finish up by saying that, you know,

00:38:26--> 00:39:04

remote, you know, keep in mind that, like I said, all throughout the talk that, you know, these days, these 10 days, they are days, when your deeds are multiplied, you know, your, the deeds that you do, that has the net for the deeds that you do is, is greatly multiplied beyond what we can imagine. And, and that's something that, you know, I want all of you to, you know, really keep in mind right now, especially those of you in lockdown, and try to save these days that Allah is giving us right now as like a gift, right? Allah is giving us this paneles gift. Because the reality is that, you know, if you really realize what these days are,

00:39:06--> 00:39:25

you have so much to do in these days to keep you busy to distract you away from what's going on, you know, because you've got so you've got to make a program for yourself, like, I'm going to read Quran the certain time and you might decrypt a certain time, I'm going to, you know, think about all the different types of deeds you can be doing during the day and you'll be so busy with it. The next thing you know, it's not even it's time to break your fast, right.

00:39:27--> 00:39:34

And the other thing too, is that you can, we can, you know, we can even imagine, like the reward for

00:39:35--> 00:39:49

the patients that you're going to get, like sorry, you cannot imagine the reward you're going to get for the patients that you're having right now for these trucks for you going through this trial during these days. You know, imagine that your The, the the

00:39:51--> 00:40:00

imagined that the reward you're going to get and Sharla for your patience through what you're going through with this trial right now in these days is better for you than your past.

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

If you were to be tested in other days so to Panama, you know, think about this that you know a lot Yes a lot is testing us with this lockdown or especially for you sisters in you know in Melbourne. But look at how at the same time, Allahu taala gave us both Ramadan dishy and these 10 days at the same time. And subpanel if you look at it, it's a way it's like a lot is, you know, giving us some sort of ease in our trial. And it's something that helps us to you know, to make the trial lighter on us being the lady to Allah.

00:40:33--> 00:40:51

So, you know, just, you know, as I said, sisters, you know, strive to do your best during these days and motivate yourself by remembering what Allahu taala has said about these days because a lot of times it says the 30 kilometer you are limb shy, you know, llahi but you know, I mean topwell kulu, that

00:40:52--> 00:41:33

whoever honors the symbols of a Lhasa pantalla, then indeed it's from the top of the hearts, like what shows the true taqwa of the heart is that you give importance and you've venerate those things which Allahu taala has made, you know, showed us that are important and that he shows us that these are things that we need to you know, pay attention to, so I'll leave it there My dear sisters, I asked Allahu taala to make this trial easy on all of you, I asked a lot to elaborate to protect you and your loved ones from at harm coming to any of you and I asked a lot of Tyler to you know, lift this, this adversity from you very soon inshallah, that you can start going out and live more of a

00:41:33--> 00:42:00

normal life with nilay Tada. But while you're going through this trial, ask Allah to make it easy on you and to give you the greatest reward for all that you're going through you and your families. And may Allah hoteller relief, the situation for all of our Muslim Brothers around and sisters around the world with sallallahu wasallam and an A B and then Mohammed while early he will stop me he Germaine was to panic a lot more we have ndic National alert EULA in there and staford Orca went to Lake
