The second place where the Quran refers

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

to

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

the first sentence of the is

00:00:06 --> 00:00:08

in Surah Al Hajj,

00:00:08 --> 00:00:09

chapter number 22,

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

Verse number 28. Allah

00:00:11 --> 00:00:12

says

00:00:13 --> 00:00:14

that they witness

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

the benefits which have been provided,

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

and they celebrate

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

the name of Allah through

00:00:22 --> 00:00:23

the days appointed.

00:00:23 --> 00:00:24

Here,

00:00:24 --> 00:00:27

these days are referring to the 1st 10

00:00:27 --> 00:00:28

days of the lijjah.

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

And ibn Hajar

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

alaskalani,

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

May Allah have mercy on him. He writes

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

in Futulbari

00:00:37 --> 00:00:40

that these first 10 days of Dhul Ijja

00:00:40 --> 00:00:42

are the only 10 days in the full

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

year

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

where any Muslim

00:00:45 --> 00:00:46

can simultaneously

00:00:46 --> 00:00:47

perform

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

all the 5 pillars, all the 5 harayd

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

of Islam

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

if he wants to. Yes.

00:00:54 --> 00:00:55

He can

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

implement on the tawhid.

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

He can offer salah.

00:00:58 --> 00:01:00

Some at least together in the 1st 10

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

days. He can give zakat if he hasn't

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

given. If you're obligated to charity or give

00:01:04 --> 00:01:05

extra charity,

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

he

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

can fast

00:01:08 --> 00:01:11

and he can also perform Hajj. These are

00:01:11 --> 00:01:13

the only days in the full year where

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

a person can simultaneously

00:01:15 --> 00:01:16

perform

00:01:16 --> 00:01:18

all the 5 pillars of Islam. It is

00:01:18 --> 00:01:19

mentioned

00:01:19 --> 00:01:20

in Sayyid Bukhari.

00:01:21 --> 00:01:24

World number 2, hadith number 969.

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

May Allah be pleased with him. He said

00:01:28 --> 00:01:31

that the beloved prophet Musallam said,

00:01:31 --> 00:01:33

there are no good deeds

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

done on any other days

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

better

00:01:38 --> 00:01:39

than done

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

during

00:01:40 --> 00:01:43

the first 10 days of dulija than during

00:01:43 --> 00:01:44

these days.

00:01:45 --> 00:01:46

And

00:01:46 --> 00:01:47

the sahabas,

00:01:48 --> 00:01:49

the companions, they asked,

00:01:50 --> 00:01:53

not even jihad? And the prophet replied, not

00:01:53 --> 00:01:55

even jihad. Unless

00:01:55 --> 00:01:56

a person

00:01:58 --> 00:01:59

puts in danger

00:01:59 --> 00:02:01

his life and wealth in the way of

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

Allah

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

and does not return with any. That means

00:02:04 --> 00:02:06

he goes for jihad and he's martyred in

00:02:06 --> 00:02:07

the way of Allah

00:02:08 --> 00:02:10

That means our beloved prophet Musaallahu alaihi wa

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

sallam said, the good deeds done during the

00:02:12 --> 00:02:15

1st 10 days of the lija better than

00:02:15 --> 00:02:17

any deed done on any other days of

00:02:17 --> 00:02:18

the year, including

00:02:19 --> 00:02:19

jihad, unless

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

if the person is martyred and he loses

00:02:22 --> 00:02:23

his wealth and life

00:02:24 --> 00:02:26

during jihad. That's the only one

00:02:27 --> 00:02:27

good deed

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

which cannot be better. Otherwise,

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

the deed done

00:02:32 --> 00:02:33

on the first end of the lija are

00:02:33 --> 00:02:36

better than any deed done on any other

00:02:36 --> 00:02:37

day of the year.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:38

It is so important.

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

And, unfortunately,

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

this sunnah of doing good deeds

00:02:44 --> 00:02:47

during the first tender of dulija is forgotten.

00:02:48 --> 00:02:49

It's further mentioned

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

in Sahih Muslim.

00:02:52 --> 00:02:55

Point number 3, hadith number

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

2747.

00:02:57 --> 00:02:59

When the prophet asked

00:02:59 --> 00:02:59

regarding

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

fasting

00:03:01 --> 00:03:02

on Yom al Arafah.

00:03:02 --> 00:03:05

The prophet said, it expiates

00:03:06 --> 00:03:08

the sins of the previous year and the

00:03:08 --> 00:03:09

coming year.

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

That means

00:03:11 --> 00:03:13

the most important fast

00:03:13 --> 00:03:16

after the further fast of Ramadan is fasting

00:03:16 --> 00:03:18

on normal RFI. It expedites

00:03:18 --> 00:03:21

your sins of the previous year as well

00:03:21 --> 00:03:23

as the coming year.

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

There are some scholars who say that

00:03:25 --> 00:03:26

the fasting

00:03:28 --> 00:03:29

of Ashura,

00:03:29 --> 00:03:32

10th of Muram, is the most important because

00:03:32 --> 00:03:34

of the hadith that the most important fast

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

after the Fardwat is the fasting

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

on Yomura Sura.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:41

But the different opinion but the correct opinion

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

is that Yomura fasting

00:03:43 --> 00:03:46

is fast superior because it expedites the sins

00:03:46 --> 00:03:48

of the previous year and the following year,

00:03:48 --> 00:03:49

whereas

00:03:49 --> 00:03:51

fasting on Ashura

00:03:51 --> 00:03:53

expedites only the sin of the previous year.

00:03:53 --> 00:03:56

But there's unanimous agreement that these two fasts

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

of yawmal alafa

00:03:58 --> 00:03:59

and fasting

00:03:59 --> 00:04:02

on Ashura are the 2 most important fasts

00:04:02 --> 00:04:03

after

00:04:03 --> 00:04:05

the fasting of the month of Ramadan.

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

It's mentioned

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

in Sunan Abu Dawood,

00:04:09 --> 00:04:11

1 number 3, hadith number 2437,

00:04:13 --> 00:04:15

that one of the wives of the prophet

00:04:15 --> 00:04:15

said

00:04:16 --> 00:04:17

that

00:04:17 --> 00:04:19

the messenger of Allah fasted

00:04:19 --> 00:04:22

during the first 9 days of dulillija

00:04:23 --> 00:04:24

and during Ashura

00:04:25 --> 00:04:27

and 3 days every month, the 1st Monday

00:04:28 --> 00:04:28

2 Thursdays.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:31

So So from this hadith, we come to

00:04:31 --> 00:04:34

know that the prophet fasted the first 9

00:04:34 --> 00:04:35

days of the ludra.

00:04:35 --> 00:04:37

That means it is highly recommended

00:04:38 --> 00:04:41

to fast on all the first 9 days

00:04:41 --> 00:04:42

of the riksha.

00:04:44 --> 00:04:47

One may ask, why not fast all the

00:04:47 --> 00:04:48

10 days of the riksha?

00:04:48 --> 00:04:49

The answer is given

00:04:50 --> 00:04:51

in Sahibuhari,

00:04:52 --> 00:04:55

1 room 3, hadith number 1991

00:04:56 --> 00:04:58

where the beloved prophet said

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

that he forbid

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

fasting on

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

Eid al Fitr and Eid al Adha.

00:05:04 --> 00:05:06

These are the 2 ids of celebration

00:05:07 --> 00:05:09

of eating and drinking. So it is prohibited

00:05:09 --> 00:05:10

to fast on the 2

00:05:11 --> 00:05:14

idul fitar and idul adha. That's the reason

00:05:14 --> 00:05:15

we don't have to fast the first 10

00:05:15 --> 00:05:16

days

00:05:16 --> 00:05:18

of the religion. Though the first 10 days

00:05:18 --> 00:05:20

are the most important days of the year,

00:05:20 --> 00:05:22

we only file during the 1st 9 days

00:05:23 --> 00:05:24

of Dhulija. It further mentioned

00:05:25 --> 00:05:26

inside Muslim,

00:05:26 --> 00:05:28

volume number 3, hadith number

00:05:29 --> 00:05:30

26

00:05:30 --> 00:05:32

79. The beloved prophet said

00:05:33 --> 00:05:36

that no one shall enter paradise

00:05:36 --> 00:05:37

except a believer.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:41

And the days of mina are the days

00:05:41 --> 00:05:44

of eating and drinking. That means a Muslim

00:05:44 --> 00:05:46

should not even fast on

00:05:47 --> 00:05:47

a.

00:05:49 --> 00:05:50

The 3 days following

00:05:50 --> 00:05:51

the.

00:05:51 --> 00:05:52

That is the 11th,

00:05:53 --> 00:05:53

12th,

00:05:53 --> 00:05:54

and 13th

00:05:55 --> 00:05:55

of

00:05:56 --> 00:05:58

because these are the days of eating and

00:05:58 --> 00:06:01

drinking and feasting. So besides the Eid,

00:06:02 --> 00:06:05

a Muslim should not even fast on

00:06:06 --> 00:06:08

the that is 11th, 12th, and 13th of

00:06:08 --> 00:06:09

the rija.
