Don't forget he

00:00:24--> 00:01:05

said I want a Kumara to LA he'll work out to Al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was happy he won while a hummingbird. So, we are about to enter the 10 days of the hedger and these are the most blessed and the most sacred days of the entire year. And we have decided to do a special program every single day, a very, very short, sweet program, inshallah, to Allah of benefit, where we will discuss and remind ourselves of various ways to come to gender, what are some of the doors to gender? What are some of the good deeds that we can do not just in these days, but throughout the year? And so even though we'll be releasing, you know, every single day a video in

00:01:05--> 00:01:41

reality, these lectures insha, Allah, Allah will benefit at any time of the year. And of course, because we need to set ourselves into the mood and we need to understand what is the significance of these 10 days, it is appropriate that we take a step back and ask ourselves that how do we know these 10 days are sacred and why are they sacred? And what did Elon His Messenger say about these 10 days, realize that Allah subhanho wa Taala prefers certain times over other times and certain places over other places and certain people over other people alive so it just says in the Quran, vladika Fabiola t him and Yeshua It is Allah His blessings, he chooses what to give it to who to give it to

00:01:41--> 00:02:24

whomever Allah chooses. Whatever Allah chooses, Allah has the right to make it more blessing. And so not all places on earth are the same. The capital, for example, is the holiest place on Earth. When you go to the Kaaba, when you go to the house of Allah in Mecca, any good deed that you do in that vicinity, it is magnified, it is multiplied. And that's what the meaning of Baraka is. So when we pray to God, you know what, in the masjid al Haram in Makkah, every single record is given the equivalent of 100,000 Records, right? So try to understand how many that is going to be if you were to pray to Dakar soon, every single day, you know, throughout the year, you would you would only get

00:02:24--> 00:03:06

you know, less than 1000 you know, Doctor sooner from that, and to pray, one Raka is giving you 100,000. So imagine the amount and the Baraka of Makkah that you go there, and you simply pray and you get all of this. So, once you understand that the plate that the most blessed place on earth is Mecca, understand that the most blessed time of the year are these 10 days. And it is sad to note that many Muslims do not take advantage of these 10 days, and they don't understand the gift that Allah has given them in these 10 days. And one of the reasons I think for this is because it is the job of you know, the preachers and the teachers and the scholars to keep on emphasizing that a lot

00:03:06--> 00:03:53

of times are Melbourne eclipses these other 10 days and people think that you know, Ramadan is the holiest season of the year, and that is not incorrect. Ramadan is the holiest month and the layer two other is the most blessed night. In fact, that's the whole point of that one night be more than 1000 months, right? There's no question the night of later to the other is the most blessed timeframe of the entire year without any exception. But after the night of labor to the potter, the 10 nights of Ramadan and the 10 days of the hedger are the most blessing timeframes of the year Okay, so, the the 10 nights of Ramadan and the 10 days of the hedger These are 210 for from day and

00:03:53--> 00:04:33

night phases. Of course, the point of Ramadan is that as we know, the nights of Ramadan are the more blessing, but the days of the hedge are more blessing. Now by the way, this does not mean that the days of Ramadan are less blessing and the nights of that hedge are less placid No It simply means that our scholars have said when you contrast the blessings of the 10th overall bond with the blessings of the 10th of Dhul hijjah. What we seem is that both of them are somewhat equally bless it. But the emphases on each one is slightly different. And so in the month of Ramadan, the emphasis is going to be on the nighttime of worship, that we start doing our 200 ARCA yam or Tara we are do

00:04:33--> 00:05:00

ours are ridiculous. That's going to be at nighttime. And of course the day is also blessing, but not as much as the night and then in the picture which is now coming upon us. This is the timeframe where the days are more blessed than the night Even though the night is also blessing. I want you to make a point of trying to do as much as one can during the night as well. And we should realize as well that the sign of a man is to understand and appreciate

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

initiated these blessings that Allah has given us, you know, not to give a too crude of an example for this dunya. But I'm trying to make us understand that Imagine if one of the most popular stores in you know, the city, imagine the store that you go to for luxury items. Imagine if it said, okay, you know, for two days, you know of the year, we shall have everything discounted for, you know, 10%, let's say, okay, the most expensive item, you will get it for 10%. Can you imagine the preparation people would have? Can you imagine the lines that would people will have? Can you imagine they're going to be thinking what am I going to buy? I'm going to be saving up to get this

00:05:37--> 00:06:17

item they're planning for that, you know, purchase? Well, the example is very crude because it's to this dooney I'm not trying to compare, but still the excitement that the people of the dunya have for the dunya we should have much more excitement for the Sierra and we should prepare and we should think about Okay, what exactly am I going to be doing to take advantage of my time during these 10 days and these 10 nights and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in the famous Hadith in Sahih Muslim, that there is not a single deed that is more pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala that can be done outside of these 10 days as compared to within these 10 days. In other words, the

00:06:17--> 00:06:56

paraphrase let me let me say the Hadith in Simple English because the Hadith is eloquent and there's a double negative, the Hadith in Simple English is as follows that nothing you can do outside of these 10 days will be better than what you can do during these 10 days. That's what the idea is saying. The Sahaba were shocked and they said O Messenger of Allah, even if we do a legitimate jihad in the way of a law even that, and the prophets of the law, why do you send them said even that unless in one circumstance and that is the person dies issue, heed that person's life and good deeds and that person status is higher than the 10 days of doing otherwise, apart from dying the death of

00:06:56--> 00:07:40

a Shaheed whatever you do in those 10 days, it is going to be more beneficial than the rest of the 350 years days of the year combined, you cannot do anything close to what you can on these 10 days. So the point is that every single good deed that we do during these 10 days it is magnified, it is multiplied it is given Baraka and so we should increase every single type of good deeds. And of course, Allah subhanho wa Taala gives an awesome an oath about these days well for God when I add in assure that Allah gives a person by fudger. And by the 10 nights and this is the 10 nights even Abba said these are the first nights of the hedger. So what should a person do? Well, obviously, the

00:07:40--> 00:08:18

greatest good day to do is to go for hedge during these days. And of course that is why hedge which is the most sacred act of worship takes place in the most sacred timeframe on the most sacred place on earth in the most sacred state which is the state of your head on so hedge combines the best of the best of the best of the best, the best time the best place, the best location, the best, the best state that one is in there is nothing better than Hajj. But of course this year as you know cadet Allah Subhana Allah it was Alaska today I would have been departing for Hajj but Allah other analyze origin has chosen what is best we accept Qatar, so if you're not going for Hajj, then what

00:08:18--> 00:08:57

you can do while you are multibeam is to do every other type of good deeds including fasting especially on the ninth of the ledger, because our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever fasts on the ninth of June hedger shall have two years of minor sins forgiven as a cafardo minor sins not the major sins, major sins, you need to repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the fast on the ninth of the hedger and also of the blessings that are of the good deeds that we can do that are especially recommended is of course, the old way up. And of course, some of the madhhab said that the old kya is wajib. And this is the famous vision of the Hanafi madhhab and Hammadi Shafi method,

00:08:57--> 00:09:38

they said that otorrhea is sooner more accurate is a strongly encouraged sooner, and it is not wajib it is, of course, encouraged whoever can afford to do this, for sure it is encouraged to do and that is another good deed that can be done, and of the good deeds as well that can be done, and are especially and specifically encouraged by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that a vicar of Gao of saying that the speed and the damage and the duck being in the Taliban and that is Subhana Allah Al hamdu Lillah wa la ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, especially these for us, God, it is the most important that we do it during these 10 days as much as possible. And we can add to this as

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

well the longer kalama ilaha illallah wa de la sharika, lah Lomonaco hamdu lillahi wa ala Kulli, Shea in audio, and there are many, many other goodies that we can do. In fact, these are the three that are specifically mentioned in the Sona and of course in the Quran as well when it comes to hedge, but in fact, every single good deed that you can imagine, and think

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

Every good deed which whether it is sadaqa whether it is you know, visiting one's relatives or being kind to the poor or doing anything, extra acts of worship extra 200, extra Koran extra do any good deed during these 10 days, these are going to be blessing things beyond the timeframe outside of these 10 days. So therefore brothers and sisters let us plant let us think long and hard let us have literally an agenda in our minds his calendar of events. What are we going to do from now decide how you're going to spend your money you know which charities are going to give to and of course the best of all charities is that which begins at home and that which begins with one's immediate family

00:10:39--> 00:10:59

and immediate kith and kin. But the point is that from now you decide what am I going to be doing so that we take advantage of these 10 days? We ask Allah subhana wa tada for his folded into field We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to accept our good deeds and to forgive our sins and to exalt our ranks and inshallah I will continue tomorrow Warhammer to ye
