I would like to congratulate all of you

00:00:08 --> 00:00:10

for the coming of Eid ul Abha,

00:00:10 --> 00:00:12

which is a gift from Allah

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

for all of us. But before the day

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

of Eid there is also a great day.

00:00:18 --> 00:00:20

That a day that also another Eid for

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

us which is the day of Arafah, 9th

00:00:22 --> 00:00:24

of Dhul Hijjah. And in these few minutes,

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

inshaAllah ta'ala, I wanna share with you 30

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

points related to this blessed day, the day

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

of Arafah, so we can appreciate this day

00:00:31 --> 00:00:34

more and we prepare ourselves better. Number 1,

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

the day of Arafah is one of the

00:00:35 --> 00:00:37

10 days of Dhul Hijjah. The first 10

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

days of Dhul Hijjah, as Nabi sallallahu alaihi

00:00:39 --> 00:00:41

wa sallam told us, they are the best,

00:00:41 --> 00:00:43

the greatest of all the year of the

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

days of the year. As a Nabi mentioned

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

that in several ahadith.

00:00:47 --> 00:00:50

Number 2. The day of Arafa which is

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

the,

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

the 9th of

00:00:54 --> 00:00:56

the 10 days of the Hijjah.

00:00:57 --> 00:00:58

It is an indication

00:00:58 --> 00:01:01

that these 10 days about to end.

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

And we know that

00:01:04 --> 00:01:07

that always what you do at the end

00:01:07 --> 00:01:07

is the best.

00:01:08 --> 00:01:09

And that's how Allah

00:01:10 --> 00:01:12

will accept you. So whoever end his life

00:01:12 --> 00:01:15

with good deeds, his life will be accepted.

00:01:15 --> 00:01:17

Sins will be forgiven. So Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:01:17 --> 00:01:19

Ta'ala giving us this day right before the

00:01:19 --> 00:01:20

end of the first 10 days of Dhul

00:01:20 --> 00:01:21

Hijjah

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

to maximize our

00:01:23 --> 00:01:26

rewards and to give us even more chance

00:01:26 --> 00:01:28

for those who have missed to do good

00:01:28 --> 00:01:30

in the 1st 9 days. From now, this

00:01:30 --> 00:01:33

is 9th. Do your best. End the 10

00:01:33 --> 00:01:35

with the strongest way possible.

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

As our lives

00:01:37 --> 00:01:40

pass by so quickly, the 10 days already

00:01:40 --> 00:01:41

passed so quickly.

00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

Number 3.

00:01:43 --> 00:01:45

The day of Arafah is a day of

00:01:45 --> 00:01:46

Eid.

00:01:46 --> 00:01:47

It is the day where Allah subhanahu wa

00:01:47 --> 00:01:50

ta'ala completed the deen for us. A Jew

00:01:50 --> 00:01:51

once told Umar

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

You have a verse in your book. If

00:01:56 --> 00:01:59

this verse was revealed to us, we will

00:01:59 --> 00:02:01

we would have taken that day

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

whenever Allah send out that verse. We have

00:02:04 --> 00:02:06

taken that day as a day of celebration,

00:02:06 --> 00:02:08

a day of Eid. Umar said which verse

00:02:08 --> 00:02:10

is that? The Jew told Umar.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

It is where Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala said

00:02:18 --> 00:02:20

Today I have perfect your deen, perfect your

00:02:20 --> 00:02:21

religion,

00:02:21 --> 00:02:23

and perfect my favor upon you. And I

00:02:23 --> 00:02:26

have I'm pleased with Islam to be your

00:02:26 --> 00:02:26

religion.

00:02:27 --> 00:02:30

Umar said, I know when this verse was

00:02:30 --> 00:02:32

revealed and where it was revealed. It was

00:02:32 --> 00:02:34

revealed on the day of Jumuah, in the

00:02:34 --> 00:02:35

day of Arafah, when Nabi

00:02:36 --> 00:02:38

was with us in Hajj and the hadith

00:02:38 --> 00:02:39

in Bukhari Muslim.

00:02:40 --> 00:02:40

And Umar

00:02:41 --> 00:02:43

told him that this is a day of

00:02:43 --> 00:02:45

Eid for us. It is the day where

00:02:45 --> 00:02:47

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala shows his favor upon

00:02:47 --> 00:02:50

us by completing the religion. And completing the

00:02:50 --> 00:02:53

religion here means the major things in Islam

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

were already completed. The major principles, rules, pillars,

00:02:57 --> 00:02:59

obligations were

00:02:59 --> 00:03:01

already established in the book of Allah Subhanahu

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

Wa Ta'ala and by through the sunnah of

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

Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. It doesn't mean

00:03:05 --> 00:03:07

that there is no any other rules was

00:03:07 --> 00:03:10

revealed after that. As we know, the there

00:03:10 --> 00:03:13

is verses like the verses in inheritance.

00:03:14 --> 00:03:15

The issue of and

00:03:15 --> 00:03:18

the arriba interest came afterwards.

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

But the point that the major issues in

00:03:20 --> 00:03:23

religion was completed that day. So that's in

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

itself a virtue for the day of Arafah.

00:03:25 --> 00:03:26

Also,

00:03:26 --> 00:03:28

among the number 4, one of the virtue

00:03:28 --> 00:03:30

of this day, that this is the day

00:03:30 --> 00:03:31

of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala made an oath

00:03:31 --> 00:03:34

with. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala said,

00:03:35 --> 00:03:38

in Surat Al Buj verse 3, which is

00:03:38 --> 00:03:40

the witness and the thing that it was

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

witnessed.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

And the witness

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

thing

00:03:44 --> 00:03:45

is day of Arafah.

00:03:46 --> 00:03:48

As many of the mufasreen

00:03:48 --> 00:03:50

from the early generation said and also there

00:03:50 --> 00:03:52

is a hadith reported by Tirmidi that the

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

prophet

00:03:53 --> 00:03:53

said,

00:03:54 --> 00:03:56

the promised day is the day of judgment.

00:03:58 --> 00:04:00

And the days witnessed is the day of

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

Arafa, witnessed by the people, witnessed by the

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

angels, witness by Allah himself.

00:04:05 --> 00:04:08

And the witness is the day of Al

00:04:08 --> 00:04:10

Jumu'ah. And again this hadith reported by Atir

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

Miri.

00:04:11 --> 00:04:14

Another virtue for Arafah which is number 5,

00:04:14 --> 00:04:16

that also Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala made an

00:04:16 --> 00:04:18

oath with it in another verse. Allah said

00:04:20 --> 00:04:22

in Surat Al Fajr verse 3.

00:04:24 --> 00:04:26

And many others said,

00:04:26 --> 00:04:28

is the day of nahr, which is the

00:04:28 --> 00:04:31

10th. It's odd number. And al Witter is

00:04:31 --> 00:04:33

the day of Arafa which is 9th.

00:04:33 --> 00:04:35

Another thing about the day of Arafa,

00:04:36 --> 00:04:38

which is point number 6,

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

that Allah

00:04:39 --> 00:04:41

made the day of Arafah as a great

00:04:41 --> 00:04:43

reminder for us of the day of judgment,

00:04:43 --> 00:04:46

where people come from everywhere to gather, where

00:04:46 --> 00:04:48

the believers will be gathered together

00:04:48 --> 00:04:51

seeking Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala's mercy and Allah

00:04:51 --> 00:04:52

to come and descend

00:04:52 --> 00:04:54

that day to welcome them. And that's what

00:04:54 --> 00:04:57

we hope for in the day of judgment.

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

So when the day of Arafa comes, think

00:04:59 --> 00:05:01

about that day when you will be gathered

00:05:01 --> 00:05:03

with your brothers and sisters from all over

00:05:03 --> 00:05:06

the world but that that day from all

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

the history, the past and the present of

00:05:09 --> 00:05:11

days. It is a day remind you of

00:05:11 --> 00:05:13

your end. Not only in the day of

00:05:13 --> 00:05:16

judgment but your own judgment which is the

00:05:16 --> 00:05:18

day of your death. Because in the peep

00:05:18 --> 00:05:20

when the people go to Arafa where the,

00:05:20 --> 00:05:23

you know, the the Haram, it looks and

00:05:23 --> 00:05:25

similar to Al Kafan, which is what they

00:05:25 --> 00:05:28

shroud our body with when we die. So

00:05:28 --> 00:05:29

it's a day of remembrance

00:05:30 --> 00:05:31

of the day that we will meet Allah

00:05:31 --> 00:05:33

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. Number 7,

00:05:34 --> 00:05:35

Abu Zubayr

00:05:35 --> 00:05:38

reported that Jabir radiAllahu an said that the

00:05:38 --> 00:05:39

prophet said

00:05:43 --> 00:05:45

There is no more day

00:05:46 --> 00:05:49

favored by Allah than the day of Arafah.

00:05:49 --> 00:05:51

There's more virtue in a day like the

00:05:51 --> 00:05:52

day of Arafah.

00:05:57 --> 00:05:59

Allah will descend on that day, the almighty

00:05:59 --> 00:06:02

subhanah, the way it belong to him as

00:06:02 --> 00:06:03

he wish, as he

00:06:04 --> 00:06:04

wants

00:06:06 --> 00:06:07

to the this

00:06:07 --> 00:06:08

to the

00:06:08 --> 00:06:11

to this world the world is sky, the

00:06:11 --> 00:06:12

sky that

00:06:12 --> 00:06:13

we have.

00:06:13 --> 00:06:16

And he will tell the people of the

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

heavens, the people of the skies which is

00:06:18 --> 00:06:19

the angels,

00:06:20 --> 00:06:21

look at my

00:06:22 --> 00:06:25

people on earth. Look at those who have

00:06:25 --> 00:06:27

come into the day of 'aruf.

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

Umu Salamah radiAllahu anha, she used to say,

00:06:30 --> 00:06:31

this hadith report was ibn

00:06:32 --> 00:06:34

ibn Salamah used to say,

00:06:35 --> 00:06:37

this is the day of Arafah. This is

00:06:37 --> 00:06:39

the day of Arafah. And what a day

00:06:39 --> 00:06:42

when Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala comes down. What

00:06:42 --> 00:06:43

a blessed day when Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:06:43 --> 00:06:46

comes down. And this narration of Umi Sanamat

00:06:46 --> 00:06:47

reported by Darim

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

and

00:06:50 --> 00:06:52

the narration that came in relation to Allah

00:06:53 --> 00:06:54

descending in the night of Arafah or the

00:06:54 --> 00:06:56

day of Arafah to,

00:06:56 --> 00:06:58

to look at the people who gather in

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

the mountain of Arafah are so many and

00:07:01 --> 00:07:02

authentic as Sheikh Islam

00:07:03 --> 00:07:04

said.

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

Number 8, among the virtue of this day

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

that in this day Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:07:09 --> 00:07:11

frees so many people from hellfire.

00:07:11 --> 00:07:13

Many people will be freed from hellfire. And

00:07:13 --> 00:07:14

Allah

00:07:15 --> 00:07:17

SWT. They free them from hellfire

00:07:17 --> 00:07:19

and not only the people that standing in

00:07:19 --> 00:07:22

the in the mountain of Arafa but everyone

00:07:22 --> 00:07:25

witnessing that day with good deeds, with humility,

00:07:25 --> 00:07:26

with Tawba, with Istilfar,

00:07:27 --> 00:07:28

with dua,

00:07:28 --> 00:07:31

with good deeds, Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala will

00:07:31 --> 00:07:33

set them free from hellfire. There is no

00:07:33 --> 00:07:34

day where Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala free so

00:07:34 --> 00:07:35

many people from hellfire

00:07:36 --> 00:07:37

like the day of Arafah.

00:07:38 --> 00:07:40

Number 9, it is the day when you

00:07:40 --> 00:07:41

should

00:07:43 --> 00:07:44

have so much

00:07:45 --> 00:07:47

hope in Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala's mercy and

00:07:47 --> 00:07:50

trust in Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala's forgiveness. And

00:07:50 --> 00:07:52

it's a day where you think nothing but

00:07:52 --> 00:07:54

positive of your Lord.

00:07:56 --> 00:07:58

When Abdul Laden Mubarak came to him and

00:07:58 --> 00:08:00

he said, what do you think of this

00:08:00 --> 00:08:03

day? Can Sufyan at this moment

00:08:03 --> 00:08:06

and kneeling down and raising his hand, praying

00:08:06 --> 00:08:07

and in tears?

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

Then he said,

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

Yeah,

00:08:10 --> 00:08:11

Sufyan. And Sufyan

00:08:12 --> 00:08:13

is a major

00:08:13 --> 00:08:14

scholar.

00:08:14 --> 00:08:16

Respected him so much. So Daulayb al Barak

00:08:16 --> 00:08:19

was a great scholar himself. He said, what

00:08:19 --> 00:08:19

do you think,

00:08:20 --> 00:08:22

what is the worst sin that can be

00:08:22 --> 00:08:24

done today that prevents someone from being forgiven?

00:08:25 --> 00:08:28

He said, the sin of not thinking that

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

Allah will forgive people.

00:08:30 --> 00:08:32

Just to lose that hope and Allah forgive

00:08:32 --> 00:08:34

me is a sin. That's the worst thing

00:08:34 --> 00:08:36

you can do that day. So make sure

00:08:36 --> 00:08:39

that day you fill your heart with Husnu

00:08:39 --> 00:08:40

Bambilla, with nothing

00:08:40 --> 00:08:43

with expecting nothing but good from your Lord.

00:08:44 --> 00:08:45

Also number 10,

00:08:45 --> 00:08:48

I want to make sure to understand that

00:08:48 --> 00:08:49

the virtue of this of this day, the

00:08:49 --> 00:08:52

day of Arafah, is not restricted to the

00:08:52 --> 00:08:53

people who witnessed the

00:08:53 --> 00:08:54

Arafah

00:08:54 --> 00:08:57

among the Hijad or standing on the mountain

00:08:57 --> 00:08:58

of Arafah. No.

00:08:59 --> 00:09:02

It's actually related to the day itself from

00:09:02 --> 00:09:04

9th, from the fajr all the way to

00:09:04 --> 00:09:07

Maghrib, no matter where you at. No doubt,

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

those who are standing in Arafah,

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

they have combined between the virtue of the

00:09:11 --> 00:09:13

time, the blessing of the time and the

00:09:13 --> 00:09:16

blessing of the place, and the blessing of

00:09:16 --> 00:09:18

a status because they are in the status

00:09:18 --> 00:09:20

of Hajj. And that's a great act of

00:09:20 --> 00:09:22

worship in itself. So that's why their ajer

00:09:22 --> 00:09:23

is way more rewarded

00:09:24 --> 00:09:26

than anyone else. But it doesn't mean that

00:09:26 --> 00:09:28

those who are not going to Hajj or

00:09:28 --> 00:09:31

not there at Arafah are excluded from the

00:09:31 --> 00:09:34

Hajj and reward from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:09:34 --> 00:09:36

Number 11. It is recommended for Muslim in

00:09:36 --> 00:09:39

that day to increase their good deeds. To

00:09:39 --> 00:09:41

increase the deeds that it will lead to

00:09:42 --> 00:09:44

freeing them from * fire and

00:09:45 --> 00:09:45

to be

00:09:46 --> 00:09:48

even creative about it as well as it's

00:09:48 --> 00:09:49

Sharia and

00:09:50 --> 00:09:52

one of the good example I can give

00:09:52 --> 00:09:54

you, Hakim El Hizam and others did the

00:09:54 --> 00:09:56

same thing. Hakim El Hizam used to bring

00:09:56 --> 00:09:59

the slaves at that day that he he

00:09:59 --> 00:10:01

has or he he found and he purchased

00:10:01 --> 00:10:03

them. Then in the day of Arafa, he

00:10:03 --> 00:10:05

will said, you are all free. 100 of

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

them.

00:10:06 --> 00:10:09

Okay. Sometimes he will bring a 100 camel,

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

and he will

00:10:12 --> 00:10:15

sacrifice them or kill them and offer food

00:10:15 --> 00:10:16

to everybody in Hajj.

00:10:16 --> 00:10:18

And he said, You Rabb, this is just

00:10:18 --> 00:10:20

very little

00:10:20 --> 00:10:22

from my side to You.

00:10:22 --> 00:10:23

So

00:10:23 --> 00:10:26

You Allah, if I'm able to free these

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

slaves

00:10:27 --> 00:10:29

and to feed people, so You Allah, free

00:10:29 --> 00:10:30

me from hellfire

00:10:30 --> 00:10:32

and free those people from hellfire. And people

00:10:32 --> 00:10:35

will be in tears and crying so loud

00:10:35 --> 00:10:38

when they hear Hakim Nkizam doing that. And

00:10:38 --> 00:10:40

many things like that. So make sure that

00:10:40 --> 00:10:42

that day you you meet Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:10:42 --> 00:10:44

Ta'ala that day with the deed that is

00:10:44 --> 00:10:46

so special. Something that you say you do

00:10:46 --> 00:10:48

it and you said, you Allah, I did

00:10:48 --> 00:10:50

this for you. So free me as you

00:10:50 --> 00:10:51

have freed

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

free me from *

00:10:54 --> 00:10:56

fire. You might say,

00:10:56 --> 00:10:57

you

00:10:57 --> 00:10:59

know, okay he used to free if you

00:10:59 --> 00:11:01

free a slave, Allah free you from *

00:11:01 --> 00:11:02

fire.

00:11:02 --> 00:11:04

Today we don't have slaves to free.

00:11:04 --> 00:11:07

You know what? Some ulama said freeing people

00:11:07 --> 00:11:09

from debt. That can be like or people

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

who are in doubt because of debt and

00:11:11 --> 00:11:13

you help them and their debt is for

00:11:13 --> 00:11:14

halal reason.

00:11:14 --> 00:11:15

That's also

00:11:15 --> 00:11:17

like a freeing imam. But also there is

00:11:17 --> 00:11:19

something else maybe you should pay attention to

00:11:19 --> 00:11:22

it, which is, Innabi sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:11:22 --> 00:11:22

said,

00:11:24 --> 00:11:25

whoever says

00:11:30 --> 00:11:32

a 100 times in a day, it will

00:11:32 --> 00:11:35

be equal like freeing 10 slaves.

00:11:36 --> 00:11:38

That means you free yourself from hellfire 10

00:11:38 --> 00:11:39

times

00:11:40 --> 00:11:41

and a 100 hasana will be given, a

00:11:41 --> 00:11:44

100 will be forgiven. The Hadid al Sahih

00:11:44 --> 00:11:47

Bukhari were Muslim as well. So maybe that's

00:11:47 --> 00:11:48

a dhikr that you can do that day

00:11:48 --> 00:11:49

a 100 times.

00:11:55 --> 00:11:57

Number 12, make sure to increase

00:11:57 --> 00:11:58

your adkar

00:11:59 --> 00:12:02

and especially the dhikr of tahleel.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:05

The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam in the hadith

00:12:05 --> 00:12:07

of Tirmidi, he said the best dua in

00:12:07 --> 00:12:09

the day of Ara the dua of the

00:12:09 --> 00:12:10

day of Arafa. And the best thing to

00:12:10 --> 00:12:12

say in that day,

00:12:17 --> 00:12:18

And another narration,

00:12:24 --> 00:12:25

and the other one in Muslim Ahmed

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

Also,

00:12:29 --> 00:12:31

another number 13. In that day,

00:12:31 --> 00:12:32

even we say

00:12:33 --> 00:12:34

but also subhanAllah, alhamdulillah,

00:12:35 --> 00:12:38

Allahu Akbar, is recommended to do it all

00:12:38 --> 00:12:41

day long because in Nabi salallam said in

00:12:41 --> 00:12:42

the 10 days of Dhul Hijjah

00:12:43 --> 00:12:44

increase your

00:12:49 --> 00:12:51

Also number 14. In the day of Arafah,

00:12:52 --> 00:12:54

the restricted takbir which is comes after salawat

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

start after fajr.

00:12:56 --> 00:12:58

So after the fajr of Dayif Arafa for

00:12:58 --> 00:13:00

those who are not doing hadd, after sal

00:13:00 --> 00:13:01

fajr, you say

00:13:06 --> 00:13:08

Then after that you you continue your adkar

00:13:09 --> 00:13:11

according to the vast majority of the scholar

00:13:11 --> 00:13:14

of Rahimahullah Ta'ala. And that will continue the

00:13:14 --> 00:13:16

day of Arafa, the day of Eid and

00:13:16 --> 00:13:19

3 days after until the asr of the

00:13:19 --> 00:13:21

3rd days after Eid. We would call a

00:13:21 --> 00:13:23

yamu at tashreeq. And this this is the

00:13:23 --> 00:13:24

restricted

00:13:24 --> 00:13:25

takbir.

00:13:26 --> 00:13:27

But also during the day, you should make

00:13:27 --> 00:13:30

takbir. Number 15, a dua in the day

00:13:30 --> 00:13:32

of Arafah. As you just heard the prophet

00:13:32 --> 00:13:35

said, the best of dua is dua the

00:13:35 --> 00:13:37

day of Arafah reported by Tirmibi. So make

00:13:37 --> 00:13:40

sure that you increase your dua in that

00:13:40 --> 00:13:41

day.

00:13:41 --> 00:13:44

Number 16, when you make dua that day,

00:13:44 --> 00:13:47

make sure that you are full aware of

00:13:47 --> 00:13:48

what you're saying.

00:13:48 --> 00:13:50

Make sure that you understand what you're praying

00:13:50 --> 00:13:52

for. Make sure that your heart and your

00:13:52 --> 00:13:54

tongue come together

00:13:55 --> 00:13:58

when you asking Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala. Can

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

you feel that closeness of Allah

00:14:01 --> 00:14:03

That mercy and gifts and breaks that Allah

00:14:03 --> 00:14:05

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala gives in that day.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:06

Number 17.

00:14:07 --> 00:14:09

It is good for you now.

00:14:10 --> 00:14:12

If you hear me now before Arafah or

00:14:12 --> 00:14:13

if it's day of Arafah already,

00:14:13 --> 00:14:15

prepare some of the dua in the Quran

00:14:15 --> 00:14:16

and Sunnah.

00:14:16 --> 00:14:17

Write it down

00:14:17 --> 00:14:19

if you don't memorize them.

00:14:23 --> 00:14:24

In the sun Allah

00:14:27 --> 00:14:29

I promise you will not be able to

00:14:29 --> 00:14:31

pray for yourself something better than what Allah

00:14:31 --> 00:14:34

and his messenger sallallahu alaihi wasalam taught us.

00:14:35 --> 00:14:37

If you can't memorize it, you can't have

00:14:37 --> 00:14:39

time. I want you to understand the following.

00:14:39 --> 00:14:41

When the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam,

00:14:41 --> 00:14:43

when we look at the dua of that

00:14:43 --> 00:14:45

came in the sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu

00:14:45 --> 00:14:47

alaihi wasallam, we will find and by the

00:14:47 --> 00:14:49

way, you can make a quick search some

00:14:49 --> 00:14:51

apps like my dua app,

00:14:52 --> 00:14:53

the Adkar,

00:14:54 --> 00:14:56

the fortress of the Muslims, and you look

00:14:56 --> 00:14:57

at for general Dua.

00:14:58 --> 00:14:59

And you just look at them and you

00:14:59 --> 00:15:01

can use them and make Dua with them.

00:15:01 --> 00:15:02

But if you look at the Prophet sallallahu

00:15:02 --> 00:15:04

alaihi wa sallam, the dua of the Prophet

00:15:04 --> 00:15:06

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, focus on the following,

00:15:06 --> 00:15:09

asking forgiveness, Allah's mercy, freeing from hellfire,

00:15:10 --> 00:15:11

being forgiven,

00:15:12 --> 00:15:14

granted a class, granted guidance,

00:15:14 --> 00:15:16

you know, make the person's

00:15:17 --> 00:15:18

soul sufficient, independent,

00:15:19 --> 00:15:20

make the person's

00:15:20 --> 00:15:22

sins covers or false covers,

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

provide provisions,

00:15:24 --> 00:15:25

protections,

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

health,

00:15:26 --> 00:15:27

victory,

00:15:27 --> 00:15:28

security

00:15:28 --> 00:15:30

and the top of all that ask Allah

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

Subhanahu

00:15:31 --> 00:15:33

Wa Ta'ala and what leads you to Jannah,

00:15:34 --> 00:15:36

protection from hellfire and what can lead to

00:15:36 --> 00:15:39

it to ask Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:15:39 --> 00:15:41

to make sure that you end your life

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

and goodness.

00:15:46 --> 00:15:47

Number 18,

00:15:47 --> 00:15:49

make sure that you pray for yourself,

00:15:49 --> 00:15:51

for your family, for your friends,

00:15:52 --> 00:15:54

for your relatives. I can't emphasize enough on

00:15:54 --> 00:15:55

that.

00:15:55 --> 00:15:57

And also make sure that you pray for

00:15:57 --> 00:16:00

the Muslims and for the Ummah, for the

00:16:00 --> 00:16:03

community that you're living in, for the country

00:16:03 --> 00:16:05

that you're living in, that Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:16:05 --> 00:16:05

Ta'ala

00:16:05 --> 00:16:08

blessed and make it good and righteous.

00:16:09 --> 00:16:10

Number 19.

00:16:10 --> 00:16:12

When Arafah comes on the day of Jumu'ah,

00:16:12 --> 00:16:14

it became a great day because this is

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

Tuhid, the Jumu'ah and Arafah.

00:16:17 --> 00:16:19

And basically your alafa

00:16:19 --> 00:16:21

will end up at the end of jumu'ah

00:16:21 --> 00:16:23

and the end of jumu'ah is more likely

00:16:23 --> 00:16:24

for your dua to be the end of

00:16:24 --> 00:16:26

the day of Jummah where the dua is

00:16:26 --> 00:16:28

more accepted. Can you imagine if this is

00:16:28 --> 00:16:30

Arafah that's adding more virtue to the virtue?

00:16:31 --> 00:16:33

But also when Arafah comes on the day

00:16:33 --> 00:16:36

of Monday Thursday, that's also special days. Because

00:16:36 --> 00:16:38

on Mondays, Nabi sallallahu alaihi wa sallam loved

00:16:38 --> 00:16:40

that these 2 days and he loved to

00:16:40 --> 00:16:42

fasten these 2 days as the nasa reported.

00:16:42 --> 00:16:44

Why? Because he said these the days were

00:16:44 --> 00:16:47

things presented before Allah. So can you imagine

00:16:47 --> 00:16:49

your deeds and your good deeds and your

00:16:49 --> 00:16:52

repentance and your Tawba and your request represent

00:16:52 --> 00:16:54

before Allah Subha Tawla twice and multiple times

00:16:54 --> 00:16:55

that day.

00:16:55 --> 00:16:57

Also number 20,

00:16:58 --> 00:17:00

the fasting the day of Arafah for those

00:17:00 --> 00:17:02

who are not doing Hajj is highly recommended

00:17:02 --> 00:17:03

and it's a great opportunity.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:05

The prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam said in the

00:17:05 --> 00:17:08

hadith report about Imam Muslim, when you fast

00:17:08 --> 00:17:10

the day of Arafah, Allah forgive you the

00:17:10 --> 00:17:12

sins of 2 years. And one narration, the

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

previous one and or the narration says

00:17:16 --> 00:17:19

the previous year and the coming one. Some

00:17:19 --> 00:17:21

erelema said it means a forgiving of 2

00:17:21 --> 00:17:22

years total.

00:17:22 --> 00:17:25

Some said the previous years and the year

00:17:25 --> 00:17:27

that you are about to start ahead of

00:17:27 --> 00:17:28

like a start,

00:17:29 --> 00:17:31

any head start. You know, you're starting before

00:17:31 --> 00:17:32

anybody else.

00:17:33 --> 00:17:34

And that's in itself a great

00:17:35 --> 00:17:37

blessing. Al Ulam, the majority said that has

00:17:37 --> 00:17:39

to do with the minor sins. But even

00:17:39 --> 00:17:41

some said even the major sin

00:17:42 --> 00:17:43

would be forgiven.

00:17:44 --> 00:17:45

Number 21.

00:17:45 --> 00:17:47

The best way if you've been fasting this

00:17:47 --> 00:17:50

day is basically to have the intention from

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

the night

00:17:51 --> 00:17:53

to have a full reward.

00:17:53 --> 00:17:56

But if you did not know and you're

00:17:56 --> 00:17:57

listening to this talk right now I know

00:17:57 --> 00:17:59

already it's the day of Arafah and you're

00:17:59 --> 00:18:01

not fasting. You had a breakfast. You had

00:18:01 --> 00:18:03

coffee. You had water. You still can do

00:18:03 --> 00:18:05

it. You can now have the intention to

00:18:05 --> 00:18:07

pray because fasting,

00:18:08 --> 00:18:09

it doesn't have to be from the night

00:18:09 --> 00:18:12

according to the strongest opinion. And you even

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

if you ate or you drink, you can

00:18:13 --> 00:18:16

start your from now stop eating and drinking

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

and inshallah Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala give you

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

the ajer for that.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:20

Number 22,

00:18:21 --> 00:18:23

Sayed ibn Jubair used to say make sure

00:18:23 --> 00:18:26

you wake up your family members, even your

00:18:26 --> 00:18:28

maids and servants to make suhoor in the

00:18:28 --> 00:18:31

night of before Arafah, so they can fast

00:18:31 --> 00:18:33

the day of Arafah. And I'm saying to

00:18:33 --> 00:18:35

you, make sure you talk to your children,

00:18:35 --> 00:18:37

to your family member, to encourage them to

00:18:37 --> 00:18:39

fast that day. Number 23,

00:18:40 --> 00:18:42

if you have days from Ramadan, you have

00:18:42 --> 00:18:43

not made it up yet.

00:18:44 --> 00:18:47

It doesn't matter. You still can do the

00:18:47 --> 00:18:48

day of Arafah, even if you did not

00:18:48 --> 00:18:50

fast all the missing days of Ramban.

00:18:51 --> 00:18:53

According to the strongest opinion among the scholars,

00:18:54 --> 00:18:55

especially

00:18:55 --> 00:18:57

the the the volunteer

00:18:57 --> 00:18:58

fasting

00:18:58 --> 00:19:01

that comes for a reason like Arafa, Ashura.

00:19:01 --> 00:19:03

It's not this Monday or Thursday that you

00:19:03 --> 00:19:05

can do it anytime. No. This is an

00:19:05 --> 00:19:07

opportunity only once in the year. And if

00:19:07 --> 00:19:08

you did not

00:19:09 --> 00:19:11

finish the missing days of ramadan, you can

00:19:11 --> 00:19:14

fast your mala'rafah and you can make ramadan

00:19:14 --> 00:19:17

later on, insha Allah. Because making the days

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

of Ramadan, you have choice

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

of big period of time versus Arafah, just

00:19:21 --> 00:19:23

one specific date. It's 9th of the Hajj.

00:19:23 --> 00:19:25

If you missed it, you missed

00:19:25 --> 00:19:26

Number 24,

00:19:27 --> 00:19:29

what if I want to combine between the

00:19:29 --> 00:19:31

two intention? I want to fast the day

00:19:31 --> 00:19:32

of Alafa and to make up one of

00:19:32 --> 00:19:33

the days

00:19:34 --> 00:19:35

in Ramadan. You

00:19:36 --> 00:19:37

know the majority of the scholars said you

00:19:37 --> 00:19:40

should not do that, but some scholars said

00:19:40 --> 00:19:42

you do and among them, Sheikh Rashayr Nathimir

00:19:43 --> 00:19:44

And I lean towards that

00:19:45 --> 00:19:46

too. You know, if you have the both

00:19:46 --> 00:19:49

intention, insha'Allah, Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala will accept

00:19:49 --> 00:19:51

it from you as a making of one

00:19:51 --> 00:19:52

of the days of Ramadan.

00:19:52 --> 00:19:54

But also Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala will reward

00:19:54 --> 00:19:56

you because it happened during a very special

00:19:56 --> 00:19:59

day. But the best is to separate the

00:19:59 --> 00:20:01

two intention, is to make this specifically for

00:20:01 --> 00:20:02

Arafah.

00:20:03 --> 00:20:04

Number 25,

00:20:04 --> 00:20:06

even if you are traveling that day, you

00:20:06 --> 00:20:09

should fast. I encourage you to fast. You

00:20:09 --> 00:20:12

know Salaf used to fast these days and

00:20:12 --> 00:20:13

not to miss it. Ibn Abbas

00:20:14 --> 00:20:16

was seen fasting the day of Ashura which

00:20:16 --> 00:20:18

is lust and virtue than fasting the day

00:20:18 --> 00:20:20

of Arafa. And he was said he was

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

asked, now in Ramadan you don't fast when

00:20:22 --> 00:20:23

you are traveling.

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

Why you

00:20:25 --> 00:20:27

fast in Ashura, which is not obligatory?

00:20:27 --> 00:20:30

Ibn Abbas said for Ramadan, Allah said

00:20:31 --> 00:20:33

In Ramadan, you can make it in any

00:20:33 --> 00:20:35

other days. But Allah didn't say the same

00:20:35 --> 00:20:36

thing about Ashura.

00:20:37 --> 00:20:39

And bay obviously here we can say same

00:20:39 --> 00:20:41

thing about, you know, the day of Arafah.

00:20:41 --> 00:20:43

That's why Zuhriyab Zhabiz

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

Suvei

00:20:45 --> 00:20:47

and others said similar to what Ibn Abbas

00:20:47 --> 00:20:48

radiAllahu an said.

00:20:49 --> 00:20:50

Number 26.

00:20:51 --> 00:20:53

If you have an excuse not to fast

00:20:53 --> 00:20:55

the day of Arafah, due to sickness, you

00:20:55 --> 00:20:56

have your menses,

00:20:56 --> 00:20:57

you're breastfeeding

00:20:57 --> 00:20:58

or pregnant

00:20:59 --> 00:21:01

and you are in the habit of fasting

00:21:01 --> 00:21:03

the day of Arafah every year, I have

00:21:03 --> 00:21:05

a glad tiring for you. I have a

00:21:05 --> 00:21:08

good news for you. You will take full

00:21:08 --> 00:21:10

ajer as if you already fasted that day.

00:21:10 --> 00:21:11

In Nabi

00:21:12 --> 00:21:15

said, when my if a servant of Allah

00:21:15 --> 00:21:16

gets sick or travel,

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

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala will give you the

00:21:18 --> 00:21:20

same ajer of what you used to do

00:21:20 --> 00:21:22

while you are healthy or resident.

00:21:24 --> 00:21:25

Number 27.

00:21:25 --> 00:21:26

Make sure

00:21:27 --> 00:21:29

by the beginning of this day, the day

00:21:29 --> 00:21:31

of Arafah, in the middle of this day

00:21:31 --> 00:21:33

and definitely by the end of that day,

00:21:34 --> 00:21:36

it's the end of these major sins that

00:21:36 --> 00:21:38

you commit. The sins that you insist on

00:21:38 --> 00:21:41

doing it, that you are careless about.

00:21:41 --> 00:21:44

That's the if you've taken somebody's rights, give

00:21:44 --> 00:21:46

it back to them. If you harm someone,

00:21:46 --> 00:21:47

ask for forgiveness.

00:21:48 --> 00:21:50

Make sure that you repent to Allah Subhanahu

00:21:50 --> 00:21:52

Wa Ta'ala and you leave the Haram because

00:21:52 --> 00:21:53

leaving the Haram

00:21:54 --> 00:21:55

is very important

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

for the Muslims to do in order for

00:21:58 --> 00:22:00

him to receive all these blessings from Allah

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

subhanahu

00:22:01 --> 00:22:02

wa ta'ala.

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

As Nabi

00:22:04 --> 00:22:06

said a person go to Umrah and do

00:22:06 --> 00:22:09

all this effort and make dua but is

00:22:09 --> 00:22:10

not accepted from him. Why?

00:22:12 --> 00:22:15

Dua is rejected. Why? Because he consumed Haram.

00:22:15 --> 00:22:17

He fed himself with Haram.

00:22:18 --> 00:22:19

So make sure that you repent to Allah

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

Number 28,

00:22:23 --> 00:22:25

every Muslim this day

00:22:25 --> 00:22:28

should seek forgiveness from Allah Subhana Wa Ta'la,

00:22:28 --> 00:22:29

seek

00:22:30 --> 00:22:33

to be free from hellfire. But remember,

00:22:33 --> 00:22:35

make sure that this day, if this is

00:22:35 --> 00:22:38

what you're seeking, to free yourself also from

00:22:38 --> 00:22:40

sins and don't do sins these days as

00:22:40 --> 00:22:42

much as this day as much as you

00:22:42 --> 00:22:44

can. Nabi said

00:22:46 --> 00:22:49

this is a day if you control your

00:22:49 --> 00:22:52

eyes, you control your ear, you control your

00:22:52 --> 00:22:53

tongue, you will be forgiven.

00:22:54 --> 00:22:55

So make sure you control these 3,

00:22:56 --> 00:22:58

Your tongue, your eyes, your

00:22:59 --> 00:23:02

ears. Don't listen to haram. Don't watch haram.

00:23:02 --> 00:23:04

Don't say what is haram. Say what is

00:23:04 --> 00:23:05

right.

00:23:05 --> 00:23:07

Say hear what is right. See what is

00:23:07 --> 00:23:10

right. So Allah swanahu wa ta'ala forgive you.

00:23:10 --> 00:23:11

Number 29.

00:23:12 --> 00:23:14

This is the day of freeing from hellfire

00:23:15 --> 00:23:18

and forgiveness, as I said early. But I

00:23:18 --> 00:23:20

want to emphasis on this as we end

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

the points.

00:23:29 --> 00:23:31

In Sayyid Muslim, there is no day Allah

00:23:31 --> 00:23:33

frees so many people from hellfire like the

00:23:33 --> 00:23:34

day of Arafah.

00:23:38 --> 00:23:40

He will come closer to the people of

00:23:40 --> 00:23:43

Arafa and he will say what he asked

00:23:43 --> 00:23:45

his angels, what those wants?

00:23:46 --> 00:23:48

What those people want. When Allah

00:23:49 --> 00:23:50

he said what they want, he knows what

00:23:50 --> 00:23:51

they want.

00:23:51 --> 00:23:52

He's

00:23:52 --> 00:23:54

saying look

00:23:54 --> 00:23:56

what they came here for. They left their

00:23:56 --> 00:23:57

family, they left

00:23:58 --> 00:23:59

their homes, they left

00:24:00 --> 00:24:02

their their their business, they left everything behind

00:24:02 --> 00:24:03

them and they came to me.

00:24:04 --> 00:24:06

They're seeking what? Allah's forgiveness.

00:24:08 --> 00:24:08

So Allah

00:24:09 --> 00:24:12

grant them what they want. And another narration,

00:24:12 --> 00:24:15

Allah will be proud of them and telling

00:24:15 --> 00:24:17

the angel look at my servant.

00:24:17 --> 00:24:20

Because angels are his servants in heaven. But

00:24:20 --> 00:24:22

these are his servants on earth. He said,

00:24:22 --> 00:24:24

look at them. So proud of them.

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

And Al Ulamar Rahimullah said that hadith shows

00:24:27 --> 00:24:29

you that the people of Arafah will be

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

forgiven.

00:24:29 --> 00:24:32

Why? Because their sins will be completely forgiven,

00:24:32 --> 00:24:35

wiped out. Because Allah will never be proud

00:24:35 --> 00:24:37

of someone who sin

00:24:39 --> 00:24:39

sinner.

00:24:40 --> 00:24:41

And Allah will not be proud of someone

00:24:41 --> 00:24:43

who committing sin. He will be proud of

00:24:43 --> 00:24:46

those who are sinless, pure. That's why Allah

00:24:46 --> 00:24:48

purify them first

00:24:48 --> 00:24:50

and forgive them all first, then

00:24:50 --> 00:24:52

he will be proud of them. Like in

00:24:52 --> 00:24:54

Jannah, proud of you when you are in

00:24:54 --> 00:24:56

Jannah. Because when you enter Jannah, everything will

00:24:56 --> 00:24:57

be forgiven.

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

This is a great thing

00:24:59 --> 00:25:02

that you should reflect upon in that day.

00:25:02 --> 00:25:04

Make sure that Allah is proud of you

00:25:04 --> 00:25:06

by the end of that day. Proud of

00:25:06 --> 00:25:08

your commitment and your

00:25:09 --> 00:25:11

your your your repentance to him. And finally

00:25:11 --> 00:25:13

my 30th point, what Ibra Rajal

00:25:14 --> 00:25:16

said, He said in his book, Latayf ul

00:25:16 --> 00:25:19

Ma'arif, something very beautiful. He said,

00:25:26 --> 00:25:27

could be also.

00:25:28 --> 00:25:29

If you missed it, stand up

00:25:30 --> 00:25:32

that day in the mountain of Arafa.

00:25:32 --> 00:25:34

Stand up for the truth.

00:25:35 --> 00:25:38

Stand up before Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:25:39 --> 00:25:41

And if you couldn't spend the night in

00:25:41 --> 00:25:41

Musdalifa,

00:25:42 --> 00:25:44

make sure that you spend the night, every

00:25:44 --> 00:25:45

night

00:25:45 --> 00:25:48

committed to the worship of Allah Subhana Wa

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

Ta'la.

00:25:49 --> 00:25:50

If you can be

00:25:50 --> 00:25:51

praying

00:25:51 --> 00:25:52

at Al khaif,

00:25:52 --> 00:25:54

make sure that you

00:25:54 --> 00:25:55

complete

00:25:55 --> 00:25:58

Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala or fulfill Allah Subhanahu

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

Wa Ta'ala rights upon you anywhere.

00:26:01 --> 00:26:03

If you couldn't sacrifice your hadi and mina,

00:26:03 --> 00:26:06

make sure that you sacrifice and offer your

00:26:06 --> 00:26:08

hawai, your desires

00:26:08 --> 00:26:11

and you will reach with the people of

00:26:11 --> 00:26:14

Makkah reach. If you couldn't reach the house

00:26:14 --> 00:26:15

of Allah in Makkah,

00:26:15 --> 00:26:17

make sure that you reach the house of

00:26:17 --> 00:26:18

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:26:18 --> 00:26:21

You know, in the in any other places,

00:26:21 --> 00:26:23

the minor houses of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:26:23 --> 00:26:24

The major one, the bigger one is the

00:26:24 --> 00:26:27

one in Mecca. But also Allah has houses

00:26:27 --> 00:26:29

everywhere. Make sure you're among those who go

00:26:29 --> 00:26:31

to it, attend it, be part of your

00:26:31 --> 00:26:32

community,

00:26:32 --> 00:26:34

be proud of you being a Muslim and

00:26:34 --> 00:26:36

be grateful and thankful to Allah Subhana Wa

00:26:36 --> 00:26:39

Ta'ala for this blessed day. You Allah, we

00:26:39 --> 00:26:41

are thankful and grateful for you for all

00:26:41 --> 00:26:42

these opportunities.

00:26:43 --> 00:26:45

You Allah, we ask you to forgive us,

00:26:45 --> 00:26:47

to accept us, to shower us with your

00:26:47 --> 00:26:49

mercy, and to keep us on the straight

00:26:49 --> 00:26:50

path until we meet you.
