hamdulillah Hua Hua salatu salam ala Mala and Aviva who about all praise due to Allah and 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. I bear witness that Allah is the only one worthy of worship and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his last and final messenger. My dear brothers and sisters, Allah subhanaw taala told us that when he created this world, this universe, He made the time that divided the time into 12 months, 12 months, and he chose from these 12 months, four months to be a special to be sekret to be very honored, and the deeds and these months are

00:00:52--> 00:01:07

multiplied. And the sin and these months are also greater than any other time. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in a that assured and Allah the number of months were

00:01:08--> 00:01:24

new Allah subhanaw taala made them the number of the month if not, I shall I shall hold on peaky tabula Yeah 12 months as it's written by Allah subhanho wa taala. And then he said after that,

00:01:25--> 00:02:16

that among them are about on Hyrum for months who are held on hold on it means Yanni Muhammad, more of the mat. These are four months that honored special and sacred and these months in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned them by names so Quran did not specify which bar for button Ibiza Salam said and had little Wada. He mentioned them that they are three after one another, which is the Canada and the Hijjah and Muharram, which is the month we just started at seven days ago. And one by itself will follow up to what Roger bull followed. What a jab I'll forget Daniella, no baby, they move forward. And the month of Rajab, which is by myself by itself, which is comes two months

00:02:16--> 00:02:49

before Ramadan. So these are the four months that Allah subhanaw taala have made it then Allah subhana data said after that, Farah Tollymore movie hints and push a comb, do not trance aggress against yourself during these months. And the transgression that you can do during these months is by two things, missing the obligations and doing the forbidden things. So Allah subhanaw taala specifically, warning us not to commit any type of transgression during these months.

00:02:50--> 00:03:02

So if there is any month that you should avoid the sins and the Haram, it will be this month of this any month that you should commit to the obligation not to miss any one of them. It shouldn't be this month

00:03:04--> 00:03:06

and these months

00:03:08--> 00:03:19

himolla Some of them said that the best of all of them is the month of Muharram is the month of Mahara which is we are n that comes after the hedger, some LMS had that. But

00:03:20--> 00:03:27

Yanni some might said, No, it's the hijab because it's alpha and the attendees of the hijab.

00:03:28--> 00:04:16

But in any case, shout Allah him Harlan. It used to be very sacred months among the Arabs even before Islam. Where did they got that from? They inherited this from abroad nebula Ibrahim and Ismail. It is something that was inherited generations after generations. The important of this month's what can we use a Munna who was Shahril? Asan? Yeah and even should that it the Hareem Himmler these the suspect this month so much that the they made it very, very special and the use to bring a new cover for all kava every year during this month. Can we axonal kava Kula Sana we had a sharp they will bring the cover of Aqaba the curtain on the Kaaba during this month. And Islam came

00:04:17--> 00:04:50

to make this month also especial unrecognized because that's part of Deen Ibrahim. That's something that Allah subhanaw taala have made and have revealed to the prophets and messengers before us. And in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said as a board error reported to us off bottle crme bad Ushahidi Ramadan shahada Allah He led the to de una hula Muharram the best fasting can be ever, ever offered. After fasting the month of Ramadan will be the fasting of the month of Muharram.

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

Well for those salatu battlefury, the pmla and the best prayer that you ever can make after doing the five daily prayers is the night prayer

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

reported by Muslim Rahim Allah Who Tada and that means that any ineffable mclubbe film haram will often mean hNf remotelock Ferreira it means that any volunteer just a random volunteer days too fast. The best time to do some kind of random fasting will be the days of Mahara elimina scheck and now so yum Arafa. of almonds, yom, yom, Yom

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

haram

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

waka Dalek. Yeah. And he

00:05:35--> 00:06:21

said to ensure while in the Bhavana and others, so the point is any volunteer random volunteer fasting, the best time to do it during this month. And just for the record today is the seventh of it. Okay, so you already if you didn't know that you already missed seven days, but you still have, you know, 23 days to go 22 Based on the moon signing, and some of the enema even said that it might be good for the person some of us are distant, too fast the whole entire month of Mahara. Why? Because I settled the Allah on how she said, Mara rasool Allah SallAllahu Sallam is stuck mellow so yeah Masha Herrin il got in LA Ramadan, Walmart or a to vicia her in UK Thalassia Minwoo fish Shaban

00:06:22--> 00:06:52

Should I have never seen the process of them fast a whole entire month except the month of Mahara except the month, sorry, the month of Ramadan. And I have not seen the prophets Allah Salam fasted any, any many days of a month, except the month of Shabbat. This prove that didn't be so solid did not fast a full month except Ramadan. So those who suggested that fasting Muharram the whole month is sunnah or recommended. It's not a very strong opinion.

00:06:53--> 00:07:37

And if we talking about fasting during the month of Muharram, the minimum you can do is too far too fast the day of Ashura, which is the 10th of Muharram, the 10th of Muharram that's the minimum the minimum of fasting and that 10th of Muharram It is highly recommended to fast your colony Ambassador the Allahu anois Mara rasool Allah Azza Salam Yeah, Harris were to Hara so yummy. Oh, Mara at the heart Ross Yeah. meiomi Ashura number seven never seen the problem care too fast a day, like the way he used to care too fast the day of Ashura to the extent can

00:07:38--> 00:07:55

mean I had the Sahaba tell the Alana Debbie in your saloon Ashura had to suffer. Any some of the scholars in the early generations will not miss Ashura, even if they are fasting and they were served would ask how can you fast any and Ramadan when you fast you break your fast

00:07:56--> 00:08:42

but when you are fat when you're traveling now, international, right, you are fasting, how come? And he didn't do that for Ramadan. So the said and that's weren't reported from several people. They said, As for Ramadan, Allah says, For eight, the two main aim and Ohara Yeah, and you can make it up Allah said, Ramadan, if you break your fast for a reason, you can make it up in other days. But he said that's not applicable to Ashura, you cannot make it up in other days. So if you missed it, you missed the edge. That's why they used to care for fasting it even in that traveling to the extent that Robin Hood said that we used to fast the day of Ashura, and we making sure that our children,

00:08:43--> 00:08:59

children fasting, and when they cry for food or water, we give them toys to play with until the amount of comes. That's how they train their children on fasting that day, and some of the aroma said that, actually before Ramadan,

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

was made obligatory on people too fast, it was only obligatory on them too fast the day of Ashura, and after that this was obligated by making Ramadan wajib obligatory and Ashura became just a recommended day to fast.

00:09:18--> 00:10:00

In Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam said in regard to Ashura, and know you can follow Sen mafia, that it will wipe out the sins of the previous year. Can you imagine one day fasting, wipe the sins of 365 days? That you might say, Chef, isn't also the Prophet. Just not long time ago, you told us that fasting the Day of Arafah will erase the sin of the previous years and the upcoming year and two years. And that's interesting, no matter whom Allah said because the Day of Arafah is a day that this was given as a gift to OMA to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam when Allah subhanaw taala says

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

Mr. Mohammed Ali Omar Kamala welcome Dina Quwata I'm Talia Camilla Amity what are the two document Islam Medina when this religion was completed it was kind of gift to Mohammed Salah Salem and owner Terminus Oma. The day of Ashura. The process Salam said we fast the day of Ashuelot all of the reason is because this is the day where Allah subhanaw taala give it as a gift to to who to Musa alayhis salam in the hunter yo nudge Allahu fi Musa will call my home in frown, or today. This is the day where Allah saved Musa and his people, the children of Israel from

00:10:35--> 00:11:17

basically for our own and his soldiers. So we, Musa belong to us and we belong to Musa we have more rights over Musa than any others because we the one who kept the true message of Musa Ali's sunnah, the true religion of Musa alayhis salam. Mohamed salah is the true representation of the message of Musa alayhis salam, which is the message of Tawheed the message of Justice, the message of compassionate, it's the message of, you know, that came in the Torah. And it's a representation of the message of Ibrahim, his grandfather, and new his great grandfather, and Adam, which is the great grandfather of all of us.

00:11:18--> 00:11:51

Anyway, so nama said because of the virtue and the level of Muhammad's Islam and his image is higher. That was was two years versus one year. But again, the question is still valid. Why would a house I fasted last Friday Arafa and I got this wiped out, why would I need to I run another, you know, yeah, I need the previous. First of all, nobody can guarantee that they're fasting and if I was accepted 100% Because it could be you fast, but maybe your fasting is not good enough to be strong enough to wipe all the sins.

00:11:52--> 00:12:22

She in Ibiza Salam said you pray? Well, they say look, I'm in Salah tikka, Illa, Moroccan Tamina, you pray and you finish your prayer. And some people currently sit for about the nasioc because of the human Sonata. This for Ba, ba ba ba, ba, ba ba ba to Buddha who threw her who by the lake to plug him in and agilepm shake this other variable based on how much you focus how much you follow the Sunnah and praying. That's how the reward is some people their salah, only you take 50% of the reward

00:12:24--> 00:12:52

60% 80% 10% 20% Some people zero they just fulfill the obligation. So based on how you do it according to the Sunnah and how focused you are, Allah Subhana Allah will reward you in return. So the same thing with the Ibadat in general. Okay, so that's why that's why nebula Carl had during my broad laser or digital agenda, the perfect hedge is the one who wiped all their sin not only just had

00:12:53--> 00:13:38

Okay, so the same thing with the fasting the diff out of them. So it might be enough to wipe some of the sins of the previous year but it was not strong enough to do that. Or maybe your sin are too many and your deeds not strong enough to do that. Even Tamia Rahim Allah give the example of soap that it has a stain. So many things are some stains that much harder than others to remove. Some of them you need Clorox, you need to Terjun you need to, you know, with your hand to go and brush it up. So there's extra work needs to be done. He said that's why we keep doing all these good deeds, to wipe our sins away and to clean and to cleanse ourselves because unfortunately, as a human being

00:13:38--> 00:13:46

we accumulating every day every hour, you know, things which is not necessarily to be

00:13:47--> 00:13:50

beneficial but could be harmful to the person.

00:13:52--> 00:14:06

Also in who Salam said, If I would live to the next year, I will not only fast the ninth, the 10th of Ashura, but I will fast the ninth and the 10th Palouse woman Natasha wood ash I'll fast the ninth and the 10th

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

barrenness London the manor holding me so Salam,

00:14:11--> 00:14:59

la Salman, Natasha and Daniel Asha are the world. Some people think the processes if you live next year, I will fast the ninth not replaced the 10th with the ninth No, it is the ninth and the 10th. That's why it's called Ashura because of the 10th also a bit of time Rahim Allah mentioned that and this was reported from Jamar I mean a setup what are we gonna marfo And what? Yeah, and Jaqua Darrick an awful lot of crme want to assume Yeoman Pablo, what assuming what are some your own bad, it's too fast a day before and the day of Arafah Ashura and they after so the nine, the 10th and the 11th and some of this will be the best in general. It is highly recommend for you to watch too fast.

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

During the month of Muharram, do too fast the month of Muharram. So, if you can do that, that will be excellent thing to do.

00:15:09--> 00:15:34

Also, one other thing that I want to say that cm Ashura It is highly recommended soon, and Ashura will fall today is the seventh, eighth, so it will be on Sunday. So you can fast on that Sunday by itself. You can add to it Saturday and Sunday, Sunday and Monday. So, take the pleasure of fasting Monday, there will be a great thing to do.

00:15:37--> 00:16:04

Here we say these volunteer fast in the day of Mahara other than Ashura, these random days. Can it count as a days of the missing days of Ramadan? Yes. But actually, no, because actually a specific day, you have a specific intention for it, but the day before or the day after, you can count them as part of your missing days in Ramadan. And, yeah, Annie.

00:16:06--> 00:16:51

Lowenstein, one of the thing that today it's can might be hard because of the summer long days hot, but that's the challenge. So, I encourage all of us not to miss the month, the day of Ashura and inshallah hopefully I will talk to all them to might be able to do some, if not here in the mustard, torture for him as well. We can organize it a Fulani sha Allah on Sunday, where people come here, but for me, it's important to recognize why do we fast what's the reward for it, and as a general rule, this is a month where you should inquire increase your Salah, increase your sadaqa increase your DUA will February while I add in ash, Baba Allah Maha fetcher, who are William from Harlem.

00:16:51--> 00:16:59

It's the first day of Muharram men who TEF Judo center is the starting of the year. And some of them have said,

00:17:01--> 00:17:30

a set of can you have the Mona Lisa ratha dash 310s are so special, the 10 the last 10 days of Ramadan, and the first 10 days of the Hijjah will Ashraf our 11 Muharram and the first 10 days of Mahara they used to care to Yanni do their best during these 10 days as much as they can May Allah subhana wa Tada Yeah, Annie help us during these days. automa Samara to master for Allah he will accompany stop Euro

00:17:35--> 00:18:24

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Milena via Jehovah, some people on the day of Ashura. They do things other than cm. Like they go to the cemetery and read Quran and hang around the grave. And this is basically no base for it and Sunnah of the Prophet sal Allahu, Allahu Allah, he was some people during this day, because in the diff Ashura also there is a sad incident happen, which is the death and the murder of an Hussein, all of the Allahu wa. And there is no doubt that the death of a saint, it's a great tragedy. So every deal, when we come to Ashura, and we remember the death of Al Hussein, it is recommended for us. And we recognize that this is a mostly by a calamity, that the

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

grandson of the process on him was murder, and betrayed it. So this masiva on individual Solomon,

00:18:32--> 00:19:12

whoever, remember a masiva for that, that has Troja that the person will say in that Allah who in LA Raja rune, that's a calamity. Allah reward you as if you were there in the time of the Messiah. And you showed patient and sober. So that's something that you should say when you're looking at remember that mercy but of the death of Al Hussein, and it was saying was killed by two people, by the people who betrayed him and offer him support. And when he came to an era, they left him to die, by the hands have

00:19:14--> 00:19:58

unjust army And subhanAllah there is no one plot against Saddam Hussein. unless Allah subhanaw taala Yeah, and he expose them and Allah subhanaw taala brought revenge to the scene before he died from all of them. And that's another story to be sure, but no doubt I had a son No Jana, or Hussein, it only Allah Anna is the grandson of Rasulullah saw Salam has the highest, you know, place in our hearts and our mind. But that doesn't mean that we pray to Him. That doesn't mean that we believe like well, the Shia, for example claim that he has all these divine powers and divine attributes and they pray to Him. We don't believe that a Sahaba the Allah and them are cursed because of that. We

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

don't believe that

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

Asking the Deaf Ashura has anything to do with the depth of it Husayn, and one of the common be that and unfortunately is a very bad image for Islam and Muslims that you see sometimes on TVs, bringing those people who are beating themselves and basically injuring themselves, bleeding themselves, their children, and all these images that you see on the days of Ashura. All this not from Islam, as a matter of fact, that goes completely against what the prophets of salaam told us to do when the calamity strike us is to show patient not to we and cry and curse and and beat ourselves. And so the thing that Yeah, any we see it's unbelievable, unbelievable. You can imagine like human being will

00:20:46--> 00:20:50

do that to themselves. And that's not showing any any form of

00:20:51--> 00:21:10

being sad or anything that's not how it is. You know, we should say what Allah subhanaw taala told us Alladhina either Asaba Tomas Eva pod or in LA he were in La Jolla la June without Ekati him Salah to Murghab him Rama what would Iike humulene Moon dune

00:21:13--> 00:21:44

any one of the worst thing can be done also in this day is cursing the Sahaba or the alo I know more how we got all the Allahu and cursing the Abubaker on Omar, and the Alana. All these are acts of Kufa if you curse Abubaker or model or I feel like using her, these great companions will known or believing that the whole Sahaba are not Muslims. That's not a Muslim because that contradicts the Quran and Sunnah May Allah subhana data and the idea of island Muslimeen guide those who are

00:21:45--> 00:21:56

any misguided and guide us to follow the footsteps of the true members, or activating the beasts of Salem and the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself.

00:21:58--> 00:22:41

When this been said, I will also say and not like get distracted from the main point of the whole, which is the main point of the whole thing is maximize your good deeds during this month, fast as many days as you can, if you can't, at least don't miss the fast the day of Ashura whether we're in the last or Allah azza wa jal and your funeral and our C'mon Johanna hammock home one lemonade one your lemon Amaya fact winner Oh Allah help us to learn what's beneficial for us and benefit us from what we learn and we here we ask you to give us strength to worship you in the way that pleases you forgive our sins and forgive our parents and forgive the living and the dead among them Muslimeen
