Let me tell you the salient features

00:00:04 --> 00:00:07

that should be done on either Adha or

00:00:07 --> 00:00:09

Yamun Nhar. Number 1,

00:00:10 --> 00:00:12

that have a bath early in the morning.

00:00:13 --> 00:00:15

Number 2, put perfume

00:00:15 --> 00:00:17

on yourself. It's a sunnah.

00:00:17 --> 00:00:18

Number 3

00:00:19 --> 00:00:22

is that wear the best of your clothes.

00:00:23 --> 00:00:23

Number 4,

00:00:24 --> 00:00:25

say the

00:00:26 --> 00:00:27

turbiraat. Number 5,

00:00:28 --> 00:00:29

preferable,

00:00:29 --> 00:00:31

do not eat anything before

00:00:31 --> 00:00:32

the Eid prayer.

00:00:33 --> 00:00:36

Number 6, go to pray early.

00:00:38 --> 00:00:39

Number 7,

00:00:40 --> 00:00:40

that

00:00:41 --> 00:00:42

it is recommended

00:00:42 --> 00:00:45

that all the women, including the children,

00:00:45 --> 00:00:48

including the menstruating women, should go for the

00:00:48 --> 00:00:50

Eid salah even if they don't have to

00:00:50 --> 00:00:52

offer salah or they don't have to go

00:00:52 --> 00:00:52

to the Musalla.

00:00:53 --> 00:00:55

And when you come back from Eid prayer,

00:00:56 --> 00:00:58

see to it that you take another route,

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

not the same route

00:00:59 --> 00:01:01

in which you went for the I salah

00:01:01 --> 00:01:03

and preferable to pray I salah in a

00:01:03 --> 00:01:05

musalah in an open ground, which is called

00:01:05 --> 00:01:06

an ithqa.

00:01:06 --> 00:01:07

Now what is the reason

00:01:08 --> 00:01:10

that a beloved prophetessallahu alaihi wasallam

00:01:10 --> 00:01:13

recommended that all the women and the children,

00:01:13 --> 00:01:15

including the menstruating women,

00:01:16 --> 00:01:17

should go for the it salah even if

00:01:17 --> 00:01:19

they don't have to offer salah, even if

00:01:19 --> 00:01:21

they don't have to go and pray. What

00:01:21 --> 00:01:23

is the reason? Why the prophet said that

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

you go from one route and when you

00:01:25 --> 00:01:26

come back, take the other route? Route? Why

00:01:26 --> 00:01:28

did he say that pray in a large

00:01:28 --> 00:01:29

place, idkah?

00:01:29 --> 00:01:31

For all this, we come to know that

00:01:31 --> 00:01:32

the reason is

00:01:33 --> 00:01:33

so that

00:01:34 --> 00:01:36

it boosts the morale of Muslims.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:38

Normally, we Muslims

00:01:38 --> 00:01:40

offer 5 times salah in congregation in the

00:01:40 --> 00:01:41

mosque.

00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

Once a week in Jum'ah, we have a

00:01:43 --> 00:01:46

bigger congregation. We pray in the Jum'ah Mosque.

00:01:46 --> 00:01:49

The congregation is multiple times bigger than what

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

congregation we are doing the 5 times salah.

00:01:51 --> 00:01:53

And twice in the year, during the Iden,

00:01:54 --> 00:01:57

the Idul Fitr and Idul Adha, the prophet

00:01:57 --> 00:02:00

recommended that to pray in an open ground

00:02:00 --> 00:02:01

known as the idga.

00:02:02 --> 00:02:04

Why? So that a larger number can gather.

00:02:04 --> 00:02:05

Imagine

00:02:05 --> 00:02:07

if you're living in a village

00:02:07 --> 00:02:09

and during the Easter, I come to know

00:02:09 --> 00:02:12

there are 30,000 Muslims. There are 40,000 Muslims.

00:02:12 --> 00:02:13

The morale

00:02:13 --> 00:02:15

of the Muslims is boosted. And if you

00:02:15 --> 00:02:15

are living

00:02:16 --> 00:02:17

in an area which has a good non

00:02:17 --> 00:02:20

Muslim also, the non Muslims will think 10

00:02:20 --> 00:02:22

times before interfering with the Muslims. Oh, the

00:02:22 --> 00:02:25

Muslims are 30,000 in number, 40,000 in number.

00:02:26 --> 00:02:28

Imagine if you're living in a big city

00:02:28 --> 00:02:30

and if you prayed 1 idga in which

00:02:30 --> 00:02:31

100,000 gather

00:02:31 --> 00:02:34

or a few 100,000 gather. Imagine the scenario.

00:02:35 --> 00:02:37

It will boost up the morale of the

00:02:37 --> 00:02:37

Muslims

00:02:39 --> 00:02:40

and at the same time

00:02:40 --> 00:02:41

would give a non Muslim

00:02:42 --> 00:02:44

thought that they better not interfere with Muslims.

00:02:45 --> 00:02:47

This is the psychology for which

00:02:47 --> 00:02:49

what is the reason that the beloved prophet

00:02:50 --> 00:02:52

even told the woman and the children to

00:02:52 --> 00:02:54

go, even the woman in the menstruating?

00:02:55 --> 00:02:56

Pray in idga.

00:02:56 --> 00:02:58

When you go through one way, come through

00:02:58 --> 00:03:00

the other way. Not the same way. Why?

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

So that the other people in the other

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

locality

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

of that village, of that town, or that

00:03:06 --> 00:03:07

city know,

00:03:08 --> 00:03:10

The Muslims are going in large numbers. If

00:03:10 --> 00:03:12

you go through route a, come back through

00:03:12 --> 00:03:14

route b so that the people of route

00:03:14 --> 00:03:16

a also come to know. The people of

00:03:16 --> 00:03:17

route b also come to know that Muslims

00:03:17 --> 00:03:18

are in large number.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:22

The next important point, when you come back,

00:03:22 --> 00:03:24

if you have the means, you sacrifice an

00:03:24 --> 00:03:25

animal.

00:03:25 --> 00:03:27

If Allah has given you the means.

00:03:29 --> 00:03:31

Later on, you go and meet

00:03:32 --> 00:03:33

your family friends

00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

at the day of celebration. And when you

00:03:36 --> 00:03:36

meet,

00:03:37 --> 00:03:38

the greeting is

00:03:40 --> 00:03:41

May Allah

00:03:41 --> 00:03:43

accept the good deeds from us and from

00:03:43 --> 00:03:44

you.

00:03:44 --> 00:03:48

Normally, in India, Pakistan, they say or

00:03:49 --> 00:03:52

other word, the sunnah is to wish

00:03:53 --> 00:03:54

Oh

00:03:55 --> 00:03:56

Allah, accept

00:03:56 --> 00:03:58

the good deeds from us and from you.

00:03:59 --> 00:04:00

You can say

00:04:01 --> 00:04:02

it. It is.

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

The right thing is as the Sabas wished

00:04:06 --> 00:04:07

each other.

00:04:07 --> 00:04:08

And

00:04:08 --> 00:04:10

the day of Eid, this should be a

00:04:10 --> 00:04:11

day of celebration.

00:04:11 --> 00:04:13

Be happy. Be cheerful.
