Alhamdulillah according to the
moon sighting of Saudi Arabia, we have entered the first of those hedger, which is the second of August
May Allah subhanaw taala accept the Hajj. Now, Mara, of all the brothers and sisters who have left their homes to take the sacrifice to present themselves before Allah Subhana Allah Allah for nothing other than forgiveness and self rectification, may Allah subhanaw taala accept their Hajj, may Allah subhanaw taala overlook their minor mistakes and their minor sins and except the Hajj as the Hajj of Exadata accepted Hutch.
Now, I'm just going to go through a few points that people usually go through in this blessed month. It's the fasting of the nine days and told hedger
because we come across a recital for those who Audrey, who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, No servant of Allah the Most High, fast one day on in the path of Allah except that Allah the most highly removes his face from the fire of it, the distance of traveling 70 years. This is Allah subhanaw taala granting the fasting person this now. Then it goes on to say that fasting in this month and doing a brother a brother a bada and these 10 days is beloved to Allah than any other month that will come. One thing that we do is fasting. The other thing we do is go to bunny sacrifice we sacrifice an animal is the sunnah of Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam.
He went back to his son, as I mentioned before he went back to his son after so many years, and he tried to sacrifice his son and the blade never cut his throat because of the sacrifice of as Allah subhanaw taala told made it obligatory upon us to sacrifice an animal on end these 10 days of doula Hijjah
you know, we're also told to say that that Kabir which we'll go over shortly and then basically it goes on that you know, there's a there's a hadith isn't by huzzah Aisha Radi Allahu I heard that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there is nothing dear to Allah subhana wa Taala during the days of sexual sacrifice than the sacrifice of sacrificing of animals, the sacrifice animal shall become on the day of gamma with It's Hans here and who's to be weighed in reward, the sacrifices accepted by Allah to Allah before the blood reaches the ground, therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart what does it mean that it will be brought and it be weighed, will be weighed
and is not going to make a difference? The size the beauty, you know, when we go we see that the cows are beautifying the bag they're healthy and this is like apparently, you know, we take this as this is the only form of acceptance, but rather it will be based on your intention the Why did you sacrifice this? Was your was your heart really in it to sacrifice it? Or did you sacrifice it because you have to? Did you sacrifice it because people are watching you? Why did you start sacrificing this animal this will also be wait so make sure that your intention is no other than to follow the Sunnah of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam and the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa taala. Boos
who do grant money the question arises, we should refrain from cutting our nails and here
Yes, we should. But if you happen to cut your nails on here, you should ask for forgiveness, but it will not nullify your intention of Ghorbani
then, the biggest thing that I wanted to mention this is just brief, in a nutshell that what happens in eidl adhaar but one thing that we forget to do in Edo hada when we mentioned you need to do good deeds, when we mentioned you need to do good actions, what do we do? We start to maybe feed the poor, maybe start to do voluntary things. I mean, we we start helping in the masjid, who bring the mustard cleaning the masjid, attending the masjid, and so on. We make doing these things to get more reward and this month however, we forget the fundamental fact that Allah Subhana Allah Allah has said to us, the most beloved action to me are those which are obligatory. So for example,
If your intention and these 10 days or this month should be that may Allah subhanaw taala give me the ability to
act and read my salah with devotion, concentration and complete conviction that Allah subhanaw taala standing before me, and Allah is watching me. So you start to read slowly, you start to communicate with ALLAH, do your deeds that you're currently doing the further if you're not reading your five daily prayers make intention to read your five daily prayers if you're struggling to wake up Fajr go through the most Chatelet and wake up have urgent if you're praying only three extended to four, make a your prayer should be extended in terms of your obligatory prayer trying to do that more than anything. First thing that you shouldn't be doing those things are obligatory, stop making intention
and make an effort of doing those things that are obligatory because Allah subhanaw taala loves that person who performs obligatory prayers now if you perform voluntary prayers is still rewarding but it's not as more beloved than the obligatory so what happens is brothers will you know you have maybe we we have Salas that we have missed so we you know, we from so many years, the you know, you might have one year of Salah that you never read and you know what happens is during these blessed months come What do we do? We do think about those salaries, we start reading enough that we know after we started the hedge and we start reading you know as lateral Hotjar, we starting to rattle is
too far and so on. We start doing all these different Navarre fun, right? But what you should try to do is those nama those prayers that you forgot, or you left behind, make up for those players. Red color is called QA if you miss a prayer, you need to make up for it. So if you missed a prayer that stand I missed so many factors. Stand and start reading those fudges that you missed. I missed so many VOLHA start reading the dollars that you missed, as Miss so many asserts, Muslims, Asia, start reading those that you have missed. Do not think that by reading them, it's not as rewarding as another prayer that will always be more rewarding than your novel prayers. Then we should keep
ourselves and have a checklist and online. are we reading every single sunnah within Zoho with an answer Maghrib Isha Fajr try to get to this part inshallah where we can get there.
Keep yourself at dua, keep your tongue moist with the vigor of Allah subhanaw Madonna yet to be with La Ilaha INLA yet to be with Allah Allah Allah yet to be with Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Because why Think about it this way that you have, I think it's this year is about 1,000,300 and something people that have went to Hajj right, they are they're raising their hands for no other reason than the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala there is not a single soul that will be present there will not say yeah Allah forgive us, Ya Allah guide us Ya Allah make us the way you want us to be ya Allah have such issue and is such problem yeah Allah to move it. We want to then be a part of it. How do
you want to become a part of it Allah has not left us Maroun Allah has not left us neglected. Allah has said yes to if people are performing hajj, that hajj okay you cannot reach that level but start doing the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala start doing things that are obligatory that you have missed start doing your new offer and start doing it to us. Reach out to us call upon me once you call upon me then I will accept your DUA Allah subhanaw taala saying that these days, these days are such that you asked from me I'll be accepted your your status will be elevated then we you should keep yourself one two hours, maybe a day, maybe two days or one two hour throw the whole month. Keep
reading that one too. I yet to be rub banana to zip Kaluga but I had Atana habla Milan garrafa in NA canto Wahab yet to be Rabbana attina fit duniya hacer una thermophila hora de hacer nada machina Adana. The process Salam asked for this, though are the most if we asked for this dua and this month of Dhul Hijjah. At least we will know that Allah Subhana Allah Allah with the conviction will free us from the fight of Jahannam free us from the punishment of the grave free us from all these calamities, we are going towards our way you know, yesterday, we had a talk on one of the radio stations and it was amazing. We talked about the four walls, animal Urawa then we come into animal
duniya then we go into animal Barza then we go into animal akhira. As in you start off oh and all the souls were created when they were all presented before Allah subhanaw taala that includes the moon African. That concludes the kuffar of today that included the Tron
of today that included every single person you and I were standing before Allah subhanho wa taala. And we said, yah rob you You are our Lord, we took that testimony, Allah says, In the Holy Quran, we, you and I, before we came into this dunya we said that Allah you are our Rob, then your soul was put into the, into your into this room of your mother, then your soul became into another world and become an animal, we know you're going to into animal duniya you're going into the world, then when you come into the world with the state that we're in today, we're an animal duniya, we still to enter animal Barza there's still people that have already went there. This is an interval interval
period between the dunya and akhira. In this period, it will be decided is this person going to go to jahannam are going to Jana, the person who is a believer, he will be taken by the angels to the seventh heaven. And when he Upon reaching the seventh heaven, the angels will ask the angels who's taking the soul and say, Who is this believer? He smells so beautiful. He is such a good believer who is he and the angel will say this is such and such the son of so and so. And then when he will reach the seventh heaven I'm cutting a shot when you reach the seventh heaven. Allah subhanho wa Taala will say, make him amongst those who are successful. And then you know, there's some
narrations that that so that so will be entered into green birds that will fly around the arch of Allah subhanaw taala May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst them. Then if it's a disbelieving soul, that soul will enter his grave, the angels will take it to the seventh heaven. And upon going to the seventh heaven, the angels will see to the angel taking the soul who is this disbelieving soul and it will end the angels will call that soul by the worst of names. And when it gets to the seventh heaven, Allah subhanaw taala will say and turn him into fire of hell as he is going to go then he enters back into his grave and then 99 Dragons as I read from annihilation yesterday will be
in this person's grave. And if this dragon was to hiss towards the dunya no crops would ever grow again. So it's very very important that Allah subhanaw taala has still got you and I and animal duniya see this as a NEMA because when we enter animal Barza you have got no you've got no health, you can't do anything you're stuck you can't do no more Ibadah that's it, you're destined you are you are going there. You know we talk about our soul. We talk about you know when when a non Muslim becomes a muslim what happens often they cry, they say I get a feeling is because that soul knows that I testify to Allah subhanaw taala I want to go back to my rub your soul always wants to go back
to Allah subhanho wa Taala and coming back to the point of today that Allah subhanho wa Taala granted us with the Ramadan. Then after Ramadan He granted us with Chawan after show while he granted you to use your own mind and intellect to ask for forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Tada Allah then know Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted us with dual Hijjah people are performing hajj, you and I are sitting here Allah is saying Excel increase. Repeat, repeat over and over again. Call out to me pray your Salah, read your DUA, all these things Allah subhanaw taala is asking us to do why so you and I do not regret and you and I do not end up in animal bazaar where Allah subhanaw
taala says, Put this such and such person into hellfire. You tell me something the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I will not be happy. He said to Yara, he said Dr. Abdullah Al Amin, I will not be happy until every single person from my ummah is taken out of the fight of Johanna.
Allah is Yara manga Allah is yeah heme Rahman Al molecule kudu, Salah is Allah is all knowing, do you think Allah is going to keep on putting in jaaneman for the sake of it? No, Allah doesn't want you to go to jahannam This is why we keep on getting opportunities over and over and over again, my brothers are requesting and I requested myself as well. That let's take advantage of these 10 days, come to the masjid and fulfill your obligatory prayers with Gemma with the with the Imam because you never used to do it with the sake that I'm doing it for Allah. And remember one thing and I will conclude here, make intention to do one thing.
That one thing that you know that you do that is wrong and Allah may not like it, yet to be listening to music, yet to be listening to looking at things that you're not supposed to look at yet to be, you know, talking to the opposite gender. Yet Did you know yet to be any one of these sins? If we just pull back? Not because you want to. Not because of anything because of the fact you're doing it because ALLAH SubhanA Mata ANA has instructed me to do this
And in this blessed month, I'm going to take a step back from listening to music. I'm going to take a step back from being disrespectful to my parents, I'm going to take a step back
from disrespecting my children and not spending time with them, you take the step back, just because you want to please Allah subhanaw taala I promise you today, that Allah Subhana Allah that one action of us could become so beloved to thee to the Lord of the Worlds Allah subhanho wa Taala will end up including you into paradise, Allah will make you amongst those who are performing hajj and coming out like clean babies, that Allah subhana wa Taala will grant us this blessing through your intention. May Allah subhanaw taala again, once again,
give us the ability to take advantage of these chances Allah subhanaw taala has given us over and over again, to rectify change, turn towards him, and may Allah subhanaw taala accept the hudge of all those people that have left make it easy for them, grant them whatever they asked for, and yada Bill annamaet also whatever they are that they make for themselves, they are Allah subhanaw taala make us a part of that dua that when they say I mean, it includes us and when they ask for forgiveness and includes us when they ask for Najat from the fight of Jahannam from the from the punishment of the grave, may Allah subhanaw taala protect us also. And may Allah Samantha makers
amongst those who are the pious, the believers, the ones who are successful and the ones who will be with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and Barcia and Jana Amin Dr. Bellamy Hey,
