Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:15--> 00:01:07

Allah subhanaw taala with his ultimate and most beautiful wisdom chose particular times and particular places to have a virtue over others. So for example, MK and Medina have a virtue over other places a person who offers a Salah in Masjid Al Haram has a reward of equal to 100,000 prayers, and that is a virtue over Almudena, which of a person offers their Salah there it is equal to 1000 Press. So Allah subhanaw taala chooses certain places over others. Similarly, Allah subhanaw taala chooses certain seasons certain times in the year, which have a virtue over others. Now from this very special times, is the month of April hedger, which is the last of the Islamic months in

00:01:07--> 00:01:54

the calendar year. Now we know that Allah subhanaw taala has told us in the Quran, that there are 12 months in the year, and that these 12 months were decreed by Allah subhanaw taala Yo Ma halacha sama word he went out that the day that ALLAH SubhanA, Allah created the heavens and the earth, that however, mean her Arbitron forum. However, there are four of these 12 months, which are sacred months. Now, what do we mean by sacred months? First and foremost, we need to identify what are these sacred months, there are three which are together, and then there is one which is on its own. So we have towards the end of the year, we have the period, with all hedger and Muharram. These are

00:01:54--> 00:02:41

three of the four sacred months. And then the seventh month of the standard calendar is Raja. So, these are the four sacred months within the, from these four will hedger has the greatest status from these particular months. So Allah subhanaw taala tells us similarly, in the same verse in Surah, tilbyr, that Wehrli could Dino claim that this is the true religion, and in the sacred months, further, totally Morphe in full circle. So therefore, Do not oppress and wrong yourselves during these months. Now, this obviously doesn't mean that during the other months, it is allowed for you to wrong yourself. But what is meant here in this beautiful verse, is that Allah subhanaw

00:02:41--> 00:03:28

taala tells us to be very careful to be very watchful, that in these particular sacred months, that sins are not increased in number, but the sins are increased in their magnitude, meaning that if a person is to commit sins during this time, it is seen as an even bigger sin. So Allah subhanaw taala warns us not to commit these sins not to oppress in these particular times. If a person is fasting during the month of Ramadan, and is engaged in foul speech, it is seen as a greater wrong, that this special time Allah subhanaw taala decreed for us you should be more wary of yourself. So within these four months, as we mentioned with all hedger is the most sacred why it is the most sacred. It

00:03:28--> 00:04:13

is the Allah subhanaw taala decreed that the pilgrimage the Hajj, is to be performed at this particular time. It is the opportunity for us as Muslims to remind ourselves of the footsteps of Ibrahim Ali salat wa salam, Abu MBs, the father of the prophets, and the pilgrimage to the Hajj itself, was even known to the people of Abuja Helia. Before Islam the pre Islamic times, they knew that this was a very special time. However, their understanding of how to perform the pilgrimage was lost and was distorted. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with the true teachings of Ibrahim ASA to salaam to remind us what we should be doing during these very very special times. So

00:04:13--> 00:04:57

as these days and these months they come up upon us, we remind ourselves that the very first 10 days of doing hedger are the very best 10 days of the entire year. All of us think about the blessings of Ramadan and the last 10 nights of Ramadan and Lila Takada, very few of us prepare sufficiently concerning the blessings of the first 10 days of the hedger. These are the most beloved days to Allah subhanaw taala no good action is done during this time, that is more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala than this time, so brothers and sisters, let us prepare ourselves for this time inshallah to Allah and turn to Allah subhanaw taala seeking His reward, his forgiveness, trusting Allah subhanaw

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

taala and having hope in Him and all

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

asking Allah subhanaw taala to accept all of our deeds may Allah subhanaw taala give us Tofik success during this time Allahumma Nene botica lofi Virgie reiwa Not sure you wash chef
