Assalamualaikum Sheikh, actually, I can't be able to go high this year, but I want to go so what should I do? Is my level hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah bad. Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu.
So visiting the house of Allah subhanaw taala is a call from Allah subhanaw taala, no doubt.
And this call for this invitation is not given to every single Muslim at all times, there are those who are hungry, they are able to go often, they will those who maybe go once in their lives, but whatever the case may be, whenever that call comes, that Allah subhanaw taala facilitates you for to visit his house to perform that blessed pilgrimage. You should be grateful and thankful and maximize and make sure that opportunity is taken and grasped with two hands. But for those people who are not invited for this particular year, or that particular year, and you see people on the television or your devices, and you can see them performing the hajj, for example.
There is no doubt that something comes within our hearts for us to be part of that, for us to be one of those individuals making Tawaf one of those individuals making the say between the two mountains, and you may reminisce and think about maybe the journeys that you made before, that you once upon a time, that your footsteps and you walked on that last floor, that blessed place, around the Kaaba, going between the two mountains or maybe have you were in Mina Are you an offer and was deliver you consciously over the days have had you follow those people maybe on your device or television,
looking at every moment to say that I did that once upon a time or you would love to do that.
But Allah subhanaw taala is mercy is so fast. What Mati was the article Lushy as Allah Jalla wa Allah tells us in the Quran, that My Mercy encompasses everything, that yes, there are certain individuals when they perform their Hajj they are chosen people, they are or have been given that opportunity to have that accepted hedge to have that blessing and great reward of having an accepted hedging being paid from the people of gender. Or for example, there are those people who are performing low off and have that special reward or the salary and having that special reward. Then there are those people who are at home and watching that. Does Allah subhanaw taala has he forsaken
you that you have left been left by the wayside? The only the people performing the hajj have the reward, or is there an opportunity for you? Well, he laid hand or praise and things is due to Allah subhanaw taala that there are amazing opportunities for the one who does not make much and as we know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us in the hadith of Ibn Abbas Radi Allahu Anhu Ummah, that the most beloved days to Allah subhanaw taala are the days of role hedges, the first 10 days of good hedges, that there are no deeds, no acts of EBA that are offered in the entire year, but are more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala in those days which offered worship than the days of
Therefore, the one who does not make hedge, it does not mean that you miss out on a great opportunity, it means that there is another opportunity for you there as well. So what can we do? What can we do during these beautiful and blessed days? Well, I want to mention some of those things that inshallah Tada we can all strive and try to engaging in these days, even though we ourselves, we are not performing the hajj. First and foremost, and these are not in any specific order. And that what I mentioned, first and foremost, the obligatory acts, that's something you need to do each other time. These are the most beloved actions to Allah subhanaw taala on the most beloved days, so
fulfill your follow up. These are the most beloved actions to Allah subhanaw taala then follow that up with as much voluntary acts as you possibly can. And that comes in so many different forms. For example, you could fast maybe the first nine days of the ledger, you could fast the first nine days of the ledger, not the 10th because that is the day to eat, and it's not allowed to fast on the day of eight. So the person who wants to fast the first nine days of good hedger will be when a great reward for that isn't too late to Allah first of all those days which are the most beloved days to a lot of adequate Ira even more than Ramadan brother and sisters today's of dual hija are better than
the days of Ramadan.
What else can I do? There are the voluntary Sunon the 12 raka art that are attached to the obligatory prayers to before salata. devachan failure for before the horse to after the horse to after mockery to after Isha you make sure that every single day and
Then after that isn't really too early you make it a permanent pattern in your life. So the house in Paradise is built for you in Jannah but isn't Allah to ALLAH SubhanA great reward. There is the recitation of Quran, recite the Quran more on these days, because for each letter that you recite, they are a shout out to other Ashura hasnat There are 10 rewards for each letter that you recite from the book of Allah subhanaw taala.
There is the matter of a drop, make lots of dua during these days, brothers and sisters for whatever need that you have.
And praise Allah subhanaw taala by making lots of dhikr lots of tisby by saying Subhan Allah, lots of techniques saying Allahu Akbar to Hamid Alhamdulillah with Delila, Illa Illa Allah and also seigler Hola, Quwata illa Allah make lots and frequent remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala in the morning, and in the evening. And in the times between the Ethernet later Isla, also to arrange a court Bernie, or the Oba here, which is, according to some scholars an obligation for the person who has the financial means to do so. At the very least the scholars are in agreement that if a person has the financial means to arrange, and over here, I've got Bernie, that it should be done and
having one sheep done for your household, whoever that contains maybe husband and wife and some children, that one sheep is sufficient for you all with an elite either, not also forgetting brothers and sisters, too fast the day of Arafa
this day, which is the hardest day in the year, upon a bliss in which Allah subhanaw taala frees more people from the Hellfire on this day, more than any other day in the year. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam told us in the sound Hadith for those who are not making Hajj that fast on this day, on the Day of Arafah, which inshallah to Allah will be an expiation of your sins for the previous year and the coming year Allahu Akbar, just fasting one day. These are some of the things that we can all engage in shadow to Allah goes without saying, doing extra deeds and helping your parents better validating and giving charity, giving charity as we know the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said a
sadhaka to Borhan that charity is a proof for you of the strength of your of your iman. That giving charity removes the sins just as the water puts out the fire. So this is another great act of evil that that we can all engage in in shadow Tada during the days of the hedger, even though we are not performing hedge the opportunities are vast. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it easy for us all to accept from us all Allahumma Amin Baraka lofi comme wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
