I welcome you to a talk on

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

the 1st 10 days of the Lija. I've

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

divided

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

this talk

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

into 4 sections.

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

The first is importance

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

of

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

the first 10 days of the ledger.

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

The second

00:00:16 --> 00:00:19

is the important acts and deeds to be

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

done during the first ten days of the

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

Lijja. The third is the virtue of Arafa,

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

and the 4th

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

is idul adha

00:00:27 --> 00:00:29

or yawmul nahara.

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

First, we'll discuss

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

the importance

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

of the first 10 days of the lajjah.

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

This

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

is a forgotten sunnah of our beloved partner

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

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. You may have sinned

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

all year.

00:00:44 --> 00:00:45

You may have missed

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

doing good deeds in the month of Ramadan.

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

You may have missed the last 10 nights

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

of Ramadan. You may have missed

00:00:54 --> 00:00:56

doing good deeds, doing Lele Trukadar.

00:00:57 --> 00:00:58

This is your opportunity.

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

Make the best of it. The first 10

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

days of the rajah.

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

Even if you have not sinned the whole

00:01:05 --> 00:01:07

year, maybe you did some minor sins.

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

Maybe you did Ibadah in the month of

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

Ramadan.

00:01:11 --> 00:01:12

Even you might have got the last 10

00:01:12 --> 00:01:13

nights of Ramadan.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:15

Even you might have prayed the full night

00:01:15 --> 00:01:17

of life through Khazar. Yet,

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

you cannot afford as a Muslim

00:01:20 --> 00:01:21

the opportunity

00:01:22 --> 00:01:24

during the first 10 days of the religion.

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

Most of us Muslims,

00:01:27 --> 00:01:29

we are normally aware

00:01:29 --> 00:01:32

of the importance of Ramadan, and we prepare

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

ourselves.

00:01:32 --> 00:01:34

And I remember when I was a kid,

00:01:35 --> 00:01:37

more than 30 years back, when I was

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

in school,

00:01:39 --> 00:01:41

about 45 years back,

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

we used to prepare

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

ourselves for Ramadan and we knew the importance

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

of Ramadan even

00:01:48 --> 00:01:50

of the last 10 nights of Ramadan. But

00:01:51 --> 00:01:52

we never heard

00:01:52 --> 00:01:55

about the importance of the first ten days

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

of the Lijjah.

00:01:58 --> 00:02:01

Now since social media has started,

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

this is being discussed

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

by the speakers. My time when I was

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

a kid when I was in school,

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

when I just entered college, we never heard

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

the speaker speaking about the importance of 10

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

days of the Rijjah.

00:02:14 --> 00:02:16

I remember the first time I heard was

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

maybe

00:02:17 --> 00:02:19

about 15 years back in the social media.

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

When we got involved in the field of

00:02:21 --> 00:02:22

dava,

00:02:22 --> 00:02:24

more than 25, 30 years back, that's the

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

time we came to know about the importance

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

of

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

the first ending of the ledger.

00:02:30 --> 00:02:33

And it was about 15 years back that

00:02:33 --> 00:02:35

the first time I heard in the social

00:02:35 --> 00:02:39

media a speaker speaking about the importance of

00:02:39 --> 00:02:41

the first ten din of the jilajah. And,

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

year by year, it's increasing

00:02:44 --> 00:02:46

and more and more people are speaking

00:02:46 --> 00:02:49

about the importance of the first tender of

00:02:49 --> 00:02:50

the ledger. That is the reason I thought

00:02:50 --> 00:02:53

I will dedicate the major portion of this

00:02:53 --> 00:02:54

session today

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

to

00:02:56 --> 00:02:57

the first ended of the Dileja.

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

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

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

takes an oath

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

in Surah Fajr,

00:03:05 --> 00:03:06

chapter number 89,

00:03:07 --> 00:03:09

verse number 1 to 2. Allah says,

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

walayalin

00:03:12 --> 00:03:13

ash.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:15

By fajr. By dawn.

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

By

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

the 10 nights.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:20

And the Mufasirim

00:03:20 --> 00:03:21

they say,

00:03:21 --> 00:03:24

these 10 nights that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:03:24 --> 00:03:27

is taking oath of refers to the first

00:03:27 --> 00:03:29

10 days of the rija.

00:03:30 --> 00:03:31

And in many languages,

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

when you speak about the days, it includes

00:03:33 --> 00:03:35

the nights. When you speak about the night,

00:03:35 --> 00:03:37

it includes the day. For example, if I

00:03:37 --> 00:03:39

say in English, I spent

00:03:39 --> 00:03:40

10 days in London.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

But naturally, it includes

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

I've spent 10 days and 10 nights in

00:03:44 --> 00:03:47

London. Depending upon the context, include the full

00:03:47 --> 00:03:49

day, it may include part of the day,

00:03:49 --> 00:03:50

it may include the night, it may not

00:03:50 --> 00:03:51

include. Similarly,

00:03:52 --> 00:03:53

when in Arabic,

00:03:53 --> 00:03:55

the nights are referred to,

00:03:55 --> 00:03:57

it may refer to the night only. It

00:03:57 --> 00:03:59

may refer to the night and day put

00:03:59 --> 00:04:01

together or it may refer to the day

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

only.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:03

In this Surah al Fajr,

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

Surah number 89, verse number 1 to 2,

00:04:07 --> 00:04:09

When Allah says, wal fajr,

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

walayalin

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

ashr

00:04:12 --> 00:04:13

by dawn,

00:04:14 --> 00:04:16

by the 10 nights. The Mufassareen

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

say and it's also mentioned in Ibn Kathir,

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

volume number 8, page number 413.

00:04:22 --> 00:04:24

And if we refer to the summarized version,

00:04:25 --> 00:04:26

the English translation

00:04:26 --> 00:04:27

printed, madarasalam,

00:04:28 --> 00:04:29

it is volume number 10,

00:04:30 --> 00:04:31

page number 468.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:34

Ibn Kasir and many of us say

00:04:36 --> 00:04:38

that these 10 nights refer

00:04:39 --> 00:04:39

to

00:04:40 --> 00:04:41

the 1st 10 days of dulija.

00:04:42 --> 00:04:43

And they agree

00:04:43 --> 00:04:44

that these

00:04:45 --> 00:04:47

first 10 days of dulija

00:04:47 --> 00:04:50

are better than all the other days of

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

the year.

00:04:52 --> 00:04:53

It's even better

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

than the last 10 days of Ramadan.

00:04:57 --> 00:04:58

But

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00

it's mentioned, the lembi Kassir,

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

volume number 5, page number 412,

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

that

00:05:06 --> 00:05:10

though the first 10 days of the lija

00:05:10 --> 00:05:12

are the best days of the full year,

00:05:13 --> 00:05:15

The last 10 nights of Ramadan

00:05:16 --> 00:05:17

are the best nights of the year.

00:05:18 --> 00:05:22

The scholars differ. Some scholars few do say

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

that

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

the first 10 days of the lijja are

00:05:24 --> 00:05:27

better than the last 10 nights of Ramadan.

00:05:27 --> 00:05:29

There are few scholars who say the last

00:05:29 --> 00:05:31

10 nights are better than the first ten

00:05:31 --> 00:05:33

days of the religion. But the right opinion

00:05:33 --> 00:05:35

and the right opinion is

00:05:35 --> 00:05:37

by Biberita Imiya, Sheikh al Islam.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

May Allah have mercy on him. And he

00:05:40 --> 00:05:41

rightly said

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

that the first 10 days of dul Ijja

00:05:44 --> 00:05:47

are the best days in the full year.

00:05:47 --> 00:05:50

It is even better than the last 10

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

days of Ramadan.

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

But

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

the last 10 nights of Ramadan,

00:05:55 --> 00:05:57

they are the best nights in the full

00:05:57 --> 00:05:58

year because

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

it has the laitruqadar.

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

It is the best night in the full

00:06:01 --> 00:06:04

year. So the last 10 nights of Ramadan

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

are the best nights because it has their

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

dirkadr. And amongst the days in the full

00:06:08 --> 00:06:10

year, the first 10 days of dulija

00:06:10 --> 00:06:13

are the best days in the year because

00:06:13 --> 00:06:13

it has

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

the yomul

00:06:15 --> 00:06:16

arafa, the day of arafa.
