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

My second message

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

is regarding the importance of Muharram and fasting on the day of Ashura our beloved prophet masala Salah

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

it's mentioned

00:00:19--> 00:00:25

inside Buhari or number 400 number 3197

00:00:26--> 00:00:31

that our beloved prophet masala son said that the year

00:00:33--> 00:00:40

is 12 months and have them for a sacred three

00:00:41--> 00:00:46

in consecutive numbers, that is dual Qaeda

00:00:48--> 00:00:51

julija and more And the fourth is Russia.

00:00:52--> 00:01:02

A similar message is given by Allah subhanaw taala in the glorious foreign aid for taba chapter number nine was number 36. Well, law says

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

that

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

the number

00:01:07--> 00:01:18

of months in the sight of Allah are 12 in a year. So you're ordained the creation of the heavens and the earth and from them for a secret

00:01:19--> 00:01:29

and, but naturally for sacred monks I mentioned in Siberia as I mentioned earlier, that is Luca de la, Mora, and Raja.

00:01:31--> 00:01:48

So, do not do wrongdoings in them. Your ally thing is returned by chapter nine verse 36, that in the four sacred months, do not do any wrongdoings. That means if a person does anything, the things

00:01:49--> 00:02:13

are more griever. In the four second months, they are more heavier in these four sacred months, and the good deeds that you do, they will be more rewarding. So the Muslims should see to it, that during the four sacred months, they should be more careful. They should abstain from all the sins, especially the major sins, as well as almost all the minor sins too.

00:02:14--> 00:02:33

And we should do as many good deeds as possible. Time will not permit me to repeat all the good deeds. And I've done that earlier, when I spoke about the virtues of julija had mentioned 45 good deeds, the fries, the monster hub, the other foreigners, etc. It further mentioned

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

in the Muslim

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

world number three Hadith number 2755.

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad Hassan said that

00:02:45--> 00:02:55

the most important fast after the fast of Ramadan is in the month of Allah in Marana referring to the day of Ashura

00:02:56--> 00:03:05

and the most important Salah after the first Salah is the night prayers that will lead to Jude

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

and the widow.

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

It further mentioned in say Muslim

00:03:12--> 00:03:19

woman number three, number 2746. A Beloved Prophet masala Some said that

00:03:20--> 00:03:25

fasting on the day of Ashura, the 10th of Muharram

00:03:26--> 00:03:32

I will pray to Allah subhanaw taala that may He forgive the sins of the previous year.

00:03:33--> 00:04:21

That means, if a person fasts on the 10th of Muharram, on the day of Ashura, all your sins of the previous year will be washed away, but natural, the thin are referring to the minor sins, not counting the major sins. That means the most important fast after the fact of the fast of Ramadan is the first thing of Ashura, but scholars differ focus. Most of the focus says that the most important fast is the first thing when the day of alpha because on the day of arafah besides the sins of the previous year, being washed away, even the things of the future one year is washed away. That means if you fast on the day of arafah two years of sins are washed away the previous year, and the

00:04:21--> 00:04:51

following that in the next year, if you fast on the day of Ashura, only one year that the previous year's fins are washed story. Therefore, I'll defer most of them say the most important fast if alpha few say the most important fast is fasting on the day of Ashura, but unanimously all agree that these two fast fasting on the day of alpha and fasting Andre for Shura are the most important fast after the font the FASTA format. It is mentioned in cyber ohare

00:04:53--> 00:04:57

volume number 500 number 3943.

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

That

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

Their bus for the 11 Mela repeat with him. he narrates that when the Prophet reached Medina, he found that the Jews were fasting on the 10th of March. And he asked them that why do you fast during this day? They said this day, Allah gave victory to Moses and the people of Bani Israel of Iran. So the Prophet replied, that V Muslims are more closer to musala salam, then the Jews, and he ordered the Muslims to fast on assura, the 10th of Mara. It further mentioned

00:05:40--> 00:05:40

in se Bukhari

00:05:42--> 00:05:54

volume number 300, number 2006, that adnet abass Mela VPS at him, he narrates that he never found the Prophet

00:05:56--> 00:06:06

wanting to fast on any day more than the day of Ashura and this month, that is the month of Ramadan

00:06:09--> 00:06:10

is further mentioned

00:06:11--> 00:06:12

in

00:06:14--> 00:06:20

so now without wall number 300, number 2445

00:06:21--> 00:06:22

that the Prophet peace be upon him.

00:06:24--> 00:06:37

The people approached him, and they told him that the Jews and the Christians, they fast on the 10th of March Andre fashola. So the Prophet said next year,

00:06:38--> 00:06:41

we will also fast on the ninth of March.

00:06:43--> 00:06:50

As mentioned in Mr. Ahmed, worry number two, number 2154.

00:06:51--> 00:06:57

That the Prophet said, do the opposite of what the Jews and the Christians do

00:06:58--> 00:07:04

besides fasting on the 10th of Muharram, also fast on the ninth or the 11th of March.

00:07:07--> 00:07:11

Because of this, when you read the Sharla of say Buhari,

00:07:13--> 00:07:21

Hafiz of Niger as Kalani, he says that fasting of Ashura is of three levels.

00:07:23--> 00:07:30

The lowest is fasting on the 10th of March, maybe of Russia. The second is

00:07:31--> 00:07:40

fasting on the ninth and the 10th of March, and the highest is fasting on ninth 10th 11th of March.

00:07:41--> 00:07:51

That means we Muslims, we learn from all the Hadees that moram is the month of Allah, it's one of the four sacred months.

00:07:53--> 00:08:31

In the sacred man, we should do good deeds obtained from doing bad deeds. And the best is that we fast on all three days, the ninth, the 10th, and the 11th. of model that is the best if you cannot fast for three days, at least fast for two days, ninth and 10th of moron or 10 11th of moron. If you cannot fast for two days and you can only do for one day, then the least of the least you can do is fast, at least on the 10th of march on the day of Ashura. This was a short message on the importance of marjoram and fasting, Andre fashola
