Shaykh Waleed Basyouni shares with us the Blessings Of Muharram.
This talk was delivered at the Clear Lake Islamic Center on Oct 07, 2016.
When Allah created the universe and together with it the concept of time. The place and the time.
The year is then divided into twelve months – Thul Qi’dah, Thul Hijjah, Muharram, Rajab and the four are sacred.
The Hijri calendar starts in Muharram because its considered the best of the sacred months and it is a fresh start after hajj – where people cleansed themselves.
Pre Islamic Arabia would also regard these months as sacred.
Best fasting is the fasting that one offers during Muharram – We have no evidence that Muhammad (saw) fasted any other day in Muharram other than the 10th. It is through the statement of Muhammad (saw) that we learn to fast as much as we can in Muharram – not to fast the entire the month.
Ashura is the 10th of Muharram –
” If I will live until next year I will fast the 9th..” The sunnah is to fast the 9th & the 10th. Dont be like the Jews and fast two days instead of only the 10th.
Best to fast a day before or a day after.
Ibn Abbas (ra) “I didn’t see Muhammed fast so eagerly for Muharram than any other fast. It was obligatory to fast this day before fasting in Ramadaan was legislated.
Muharram – Sunnah – dont break fast while travelling
Ramadaan – Obligatory – can break fast
Why???? Because Ramadaan can be made up…while missing Muharram’s fast cannot be made up
Minor sins of a previous year is wiped away.
If you fasted Arafat what is the need of Ashura? If the sins have stained our hearts so deeply Ashura comes as a second chance to wash away the sins.
Can I consider making up my fasting of Ramadaan on the day of Ashura – dual intention.
No special Ibadah or practices but for fasting. Increase ibadah. One of the worst practices – the bidah of self flagellation as penance for the day Hussain (RA) was murdered.
“Not among us those who go out beating themselves weeping and mourning the dead, it is not from the people of Islam”
“Fathima ibn Hussain ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib – Her father said her grandfather said… Inna lilahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon – calamity even if it has happened long time ago – Ajr is the same whenever you remember to say this.
These pratices have no religion, mercy or common sense behind it. We don’t even do that over the death of Muhammed (saw)…. Lots of companions were murdered unjustly…yet there is no need to perform these things.
The story of Musa
Jews would celebrate this day – the day Musa was liberated from Firawn
We have more reason to celebrate this day so we should fast.
When we fast the day of Ashura –
We are one Ummah!
Reminder to all that injustice, aggression and terror will NEVER prevail!
Those who prevail are the people of Taqwa, those who choose to be with Allah
Allah plots against the Kaafireen – The one who wished to Kill Musa was he who raised him in his household.
The magicians became believers. Firawn’s wife was the first to believe in Musa.
Do not just let this day pass by only preventing yourself from food and drink!

de la evangelia all praise Do you to align His praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family, his companions and his followers until the day of judgment, and all the prophets and messengers and their follower. I bear witness at the laws The only one worthy of worship, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his last and final messenger. My brothers and sisters, Mahabharata, Allah who
cut the zenana will McCann, when a lie created this universe, he created also the concept of time, not only the place, the place and the time, and Allah Subhana Allah said that he made the time made of units and one unit we known we call it year, Sam Senate. Well janela who had the center infinity Asha, Shahada isn't an actual shahara. Allah have made the year made of 12 months. From the day he created the heavens and earth, as he told us, Carlin and also among these 12 months, as the prophet SAW, Selim told us, john I mean harbottle
serrato metalia the other hedger moharan Raja, la de Bina jumada, wa,
worshiping the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam said solid that you have made out of these 12 months, four months that they are very sacred.
And they are three of them consecutives, the head, the Peridot and hedger on Muharram, and one separate which is the month of Roger, and this month, which is the month of Muharram, that we are entered I have chosen by Amara, the Allahu Akbar, and our even avatar liberal theologian. And after that, almost there is a consensus among the companions, they agreed with their choice for them to start the year from the month of Muharram. So our Hijri calendar the first month and it is the moharram it's not because the prophets or Salah migrated in Muharram No, because it is considered the best of the four sacred months. Lucky Jalan Raja Maha the SHA, Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah
and also because it comes after had where people cleanse themselves, purified themselves, it's a new start fresh start after head. So they said that's where the New Year start. And that's how the concept came the New Year hijiri then the Choose the year where the profits are Salah migrated to Medina from Mecca to be where they start counting the years.
The my brothers and sisters this month that is used to be honored and considered a holy month by the Arabs even before the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Can you say muno Shahada awesome. Yeah, Anisha deedle huruma a very holy sacred month. Nobody allowed to fight. Nobody allowed to attack anyone else. And they respect the all the humans lives on humans rights at that time. You can't steal you can basically abuse and all these things that Donald Trump they will never do it during these four months, especially this month, and the US even to dressel Kaba external cabinet officials rely on Mahara and they used to fast the day of Ashura before even in ob sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was sent as a messenger. And most likely This came to them something they inherited from their religion and the practice of Ibrahim is smile. And he said, Look at karlen nibio sallallahu alayhi wa sallam abodo crme badshahi Ramadan Shahada, La Jolla Muharram yeah and usea Mashallah halmahera the prophets of Salaam said that the best fasting can be offered as the first thing that you offer during the month of Muharram. From this heavy third that the Navy SEAL Salah mentioned that because this is a very special month, a very sacred month.
Even though an obeah Salalah D you it was said Lem, LEM Yun kalyanaraman. cr Misha hurry Lyle Muharram Illa Salva Ashura forgot an Ibiza Salim if you look at his practices, he never fast we don't know that he ever fasted it any other day in Mahara other than the 10th? I mean, we don't have any evidence as individuals who learn faster more than that. But you all know and assume that an obeah Salalah do you send them much more
ammo who has to help bow warfare Allahu aparato salam Salalah How do you send them for how they assume nothing better to be totally lavadora to be fairly sallallahu wasallam we know that the sin of the proto Salim is a combination of two things. One a statement that the process Allah will make or an action that he will do it or he will approve. So nebuta sell them through his statements encourage us to fast as many days during the month of Muharram but if there is any month we should care for most fast will be this month.
But it is not correct for a person to fast the whole entire month. Because it may be Salah Salem as I just said, Mr. Cameron, abuso Salim sia Masha, Allah Ramadan, he only fasted for the full entire month, only the month of Ramadan. But other than the month of Ramadan, you're not supposed to
fast as a complete month unless you make a penalty that required from you too fast. two consecutive months that's a different case.
And nibio sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if there is any day that we should care for the most of fast will be the Dave Ashura. ashuelot means the 10th of Muharram
so this is the day that you should care for too fast the most is not the ninth. It's the 10th when in the B cell allow the Selim said let in Hawaii to Isla Harbin, la Suman, tassa lemmya Cunha, Steve danon in Arusha, Belle ivatan, la B magia. mano Susana levy karami sala de la Suman, Natasha Asha that individual Solomon one of the 33rd if I will live to the next year, I will fast the ninth some people thought that means we should fast the ninth not the 10th but that's no that's not true. And maybe so celeb said, I will fast the ninth as an addition. Yeah, I will add it to the 10th. So that's why the sinner is too fast, the ninth and the 10th because in the B cell allowed to sell them
said also, so much Tasha Asha, Holly folia hood, fast the ninth and the 10th Don't be like the Jews, who fast only one day and he said if I will live to next year, I will fast the ninth and 10th very explicit from him. Salalah you it was some of the LMS said that the best way to fast the month the day of Ashura is to have one day before it and one day after it, it will pay you mentioned that in my head and this supported this opinion buying eration from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he said something in that line which is I don't believe it is an authentic narration but if someone wants to do and day after or and day before it is optional because fasting during this month is
recommended anyway but I don't know any particular proof will back up to say that this is the sin and the best for is to have one day before on white day after
I've been ambassador of the allow answered Mara to our solar lights allow us to send them you have to help us yummy Omen fog la
Ramadan Illa Allah I didn't see the problem care too fast a day, like the way he cared for fasting the diff Ashura fasting the diff Ashura was obligatory upon Muslim in the beginning of Islam, before Ramadan was prescribed upon us, it was prescribed upon us to fast the day of Ashura. What is that it can be your salatu salam said Manasa, Hanuman could move to LA and phillium sick, whoever woke up this day, which is the diff Ashura and already had breakfast, stop eating, and you must fast and so habit of the allow and I'm used to fast this day the same way the fact that we fasted in a MOBA until this was abrogated later on, and it became just the recommended act that will allow us to fast
this day, even while they are traveling,
even while they are traveling, and when they were asked the companions like even Masood, and bass and others, I jumped to the canals How about also the law
Ramadan and Ramadan you guys order us to break the fast when we travel further Joshua somtam the students telling them in Ramadan you and Cara just not too fast while traveling, but in Ashura, you fast it's not even obligate Tori, but look at the fifth look at the different understanding of the companions pilu, Amara Milan, kala houfy for it the two main aim and oh, well I'm Ashura for a Salah who did the two main aim in Doha. As for Ramadan, Allah said, If you break it for a legit treason, you can make it up in other days. But in Ashura, if you miss it, you miss it. You never get the agenda again. That's why we care too fast this month. And abuse Allah Allah Allah you it was a lamp
set in Isla de se one you can feel a senator.
I hope that my fasting the day of Ashura that will raise the sins of the previous years and this sense anything except a sugar Kabila anything except the sense that it means a violation of another human beings right. And some LMS said in the majority of the LMS said any sense except the major sense and it means the minor sense that we do in our daily basis. My brother and sisters might somebody told me she wanted I already fasted out of her an hour already take care of the year before and the year after. So what would I need? You know, I shut off for I already took care of it in advance. Even Tamia Rahim Allah has asked that, and he said, Look at it this way, if you have a
close, and this close is so dirty, you wash it once and you put the solvent to cleanse it one's supposed to be clean. But if the there is too much stains in it, and they are so deep in the fabric, maybe one wash will not be enough. So you have a one another and two and three and four and you keep repeating this until it will clean it completely. That's why these kind of, you know, a hadith about raising your sons and cleansing you from your sins. There's so many of them because the sins that we accumulated, the hafla the heedless, the heedless, the that we accumulate, being ungrateful to Allah subhana wa Tada. Just give you an example since you woke up in the morning until this moment, how
many times did you think Allah subhana wa tada for your heart? That pumping this blood into your
veins? How many times do you think I lost one since you wake up until today for the eye for the IRS for the blessings that you all have. How many times have you thought about all the things that are provided for you for your Eman for your health for whatever Allah bless you we're
not much these things our dots need to be washed away. And that's why the opportunity is so many opportunities for us to cleanse ourselves.
Can I consider fasting the death Ashura one of the days of from Amanda a mess? So I have the intention to make up one of the days of Ramadan. And in the same time, I will basically fast the day of Ashura the highest committee of Federalists Arabia was asked this question and he said legend at that time I
thought it is a sama Yeoman Asher one Hi, Dr. Sharman Chandra, Mohan. Benito Kava man Maria Jimenez, Yama T of Torah Harmon Ramadan, jazz Allahu darrick. They said it's permissible and it is allowed for you to do so.
My brothers and sisters, there is nothing else was ordained in the diff Ashura for us to do except faster that we are aware of, there is no special practices or special act to for sure, especially a bad we supposed to do during the day of Ashura. What people have invented, like visiting the graveyard or giving the Zakat out or, you know, have a specific type of citation for certain suitors of the Quran. All these are innovations in the religion could you hide them in lft, down deep, the only thing you've been encouraged to do is to fast You know, you do your regular ibadat you increase your ibadah but not to attach a specific about it to that day. And one of the worst practices that
appeared in our Muslims world during the diff Ashura, the bit of a to Howdy, which is the innovation that practiced by the Shia who believe in God died. The day we're saying was more and more murdered, that this is the day where the wheat and the go outside hitting themselves
with swords and bass chains and with hands and and all these practices that we see taking place during the days of the day of Ashura and before for 40 days, it's absolutely against the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as a Navy SEAL allowed to sell themselves, laser minim and local worship culture you water as the as the interior or exterior. Why would that be that are
not among us, those who go out, beating themselves and weaving out light and mourning the dead, their death in such a manner that's not from the practice of the Islam that people have. It's not for them and only allow
and what can be a better gift to the Shia of the world. To give them the statement of father metal the law I know who their loves the most, the daughter of Hussein that she said not the daughter of Mohammed the daughter of her who say that she said that her father said which isn't received nearly said that my grandfather which is the Prophet Mohammed Salim said, Ma'am and Roger in usaba, we will see you back for that currency betta, who were in Kaduna for your de la Stella
Illa de la homina God mithuna de yo mo Siva, that when someone strike by a calamity, sad things happen to you in your life. And you start you say in LA LA in La Jolla, June, we belong to a line we're going back to a lot. Even if this calamity happened long time ago, every time you remember it, and you say that you will take the same adger you receive when you said that the first time to show how which is represented at that time, your patient
you know, even worse than this major sins, which is that screaming and waving out lied out loud and hitting yourself. Worse than that. What's even been practiced during these days of cursing the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam cursing of abaco a new model and more our way out of the Allahu anhu.
And the insulting of a shadow the Allahu Ana, what we see in TV, what we see on lines with the these practices, I hope that the people who have common sense and there's a lot of people in the Shiraz community today are calling to stop such practices. When you see a child, and only two years old, his mom put the knife on his forehead and cut his forehead, so the blood will bleed over his face. When these see these practices, you know that there is no religion behind it. There is no common sense behind it. There is no mercy out of it, and it will not show any kind it will not bring anything back.
We don't even do that over the death of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. But they might say because the death of Al Husayn was unjust and unfairly. Even the death of it broke the law and was unfair, and was unjust he was murdered or the Allahu la hems out of the Alliance and was murdered. And many of the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam were murdered. Many things took place in our history. And we don't do that. We don't do that over the death of prophets and messengers who tortured and killed as well.
So these are some of the innovation that that has no place in Islam. And something should be clearly that we free ourselves from it as Muslims. I ask Allah subhana wa tada to guide all of us to follow the footsteps of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, according to Mr. Pillai.
hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala Milena Viva that my brother and sisters. The Deaf Ashura remind us the story of Musashi his setup. When in NaVi salatu salam moved to Mecca, Medina from Mecca to Medina. He noticed that the Jews celebrate this day celebration for them. Then he said, What's this? Why they celebrating this day because then they'll be familiar with this day. from Mecca. They know that this is a day Ibrahim asked him to basically something they inherited and something that maybe it is come to what's commonly known as a very important day. Allah knows where it's exactly came from. It is from Ibrahim Ismail Ali Salaam, or maybe it
Is the influence of the Jews and Christians at that time.
But anyway, so the present very familiar with that day and they used to fast that day before they move to Medina. So when he asked me said that the Jews celebrate this day because they believe this is the day Yom Kippur War. This is the day where the prophets of Musashi Salaam passed pass the Passover, and he was saved from for out. Then in Ibiza Salaam said we have more rights to celebrate that victory then then
then in Ibiza, Sunland encourage the more to fast that day. That's another reason to be added why we should fast this day.
This is remind us of a very important incident, unforgettable story in the history of humanity.
That turning point in the history of humanity, when for our own was defeated by the few, the might have for our own and the might of the Egyptian army, defeated by the few of the children of Israel.
Allah subhanaw taala repeated the story of Musa 136 times.
There is no prophet was mentioned that many times in the Quran, not even Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
There is no nation was mentioned in the Quran as many times as the nation of vinyasa and the children of Israel
and it is mainly in the mecca sauce.
And Baqarah Allah imraan then the story of Muslim particularly talk about it an hour off and Esra Yunus who Jameer and how I mean what are seen
in it by seen how I mean Claudia sua couldn't do. All of them cover the story of Mossad is set up in a very unique way and every one of them focus in one perspective. So when we, when we are basically fasting the day of Ashura, which is by the way, going to be Tuesday, this coming Tuesday. So when you fast this day, and you remember the day we're lost without a saved Musashi Sam,
remember many things I would like us to reflect upon. Number one, the Tao the prophets of Salaam want to make us one nation as all humans were one nation extended from Adam alayhis salam to the last person of this ummah, until the day of judgment will come. It's a reminder to all people that injustice aggressions Boolean Jabba route

That always the one who will prevail on the end or the people of taqwa, the people of faith, the people of justice, the people of fairness. The people who fear Allah, the people who sided in the sight of Allah subhana wa Tada. The people who choose to be with a law, though are the people who will win in the end no matter how the picture is so gloomy in front of you today.
That day should remind us of this fact. parlor, moose honeycomb is a new Villa was bill in arbory law. You read to Hama Yasha. Abadi, well, I'll give it to him.
He reminded the children of Israel at that same day we're going too fast.
That seek help from Allah. Trust Allah. Put your token your trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. This earth belongs to Him, and He will give it to whomever you wish. But you want you to be sure that in the end, it belongs to the people of taqwa.
It's a reminder that Allah subhanho wa Taala plot against the caffeine
law aka the story of Moosa shows how a lot of plot against fit out in so many ways
Once when he made for our The one who want to kill the moose up to be the one who raised Musa

He plots against our own.
He made his own wife to be the first one to believe in Masada, his setup.
And he had to kill her. It's not the children of Israel only who accept it is the elite, in the people of Faroe Islands court accepted the message of Musa alayhis salam, he plotted against him. So don't worry, Allah subhanho wa Taala plot again is the plotters of the oppressors and the disbelievers. And the hypocrites. Just we have to have that trust and Allah subhanaw taala is promise, trust that the victory comes from Allah. And sometimes the victory comes upon from Allah, through the hand of the believers and directly from Allah. Like what he did in the day of the Passover, when he destroyed for our and and his people, and the deer from Canada when Allah
destroyed the enemy of Eliza,
my brothers and sisters, the day fashola reminded us that the truth, the right thing,
the right thing to be set to be dead. It should be above all other things in life.
That's why when for our untold Masonic Arabic Athena walidah when a Mr. foenum in America, Sydney, did we raised you with the kids? He tried to remind him of the favor. Yes, that's true. But there is more truth. We should adhere to it, which is what you're doing the children of Israel is unfair as wrong.
And you should submit yourself to Allah and to accept the call of philosophy panel a Tiana.
That did not make not because he did him a favor before it made him compromise and his belief.
The diff Ashura taught us that Musashi Salaam didn't feel shy to admit his mistakes

The diff Ashura finally brother and sister there are so many points we can think and reflect upon, but the diff I should remind us very important fact and reality that we should be aware of today. The don't ever be deceived by deceiving slogans and banners and deceiving media. Yuck and total beshara tilba Ziva, and let me tell you about

out of the facade. I'm afraid that you will corrupt your religion, and he will split corruptions. And that's what I'm saying that
my brother and sisters don't just let this day pass by by just preventing yourself from food and drink that day. It's a good thing to fast. Try to reflect upon the story of Musashi Sam and the benefit that we can learn from it today. Now loss of Hannah data to bring justice to this earth to bring justice especially to the people of Alabama and people of Syria and to the people of Palestine.
