Alhamdulillah according to the
moon sighting of Saudi Arabia, we have entered the first of the hedger, which is the second of August
May Allah subhanaw taala accept the Hajj, Nomura 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 was subhana wa Taala overlook their minor mistakes and their minor sins and accept the hedge as the hedge of X the accepted hedge.
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 Poseidon hodari 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 tired removes his face from the fire of it, the distance of traveling 70 years. This is a last month Allah granting the fasting person this now then it goes on to say that fasting in this month and doing a bad a bad 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 ghorbani sacrifice we sacrifice an animal is a 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 has Allah subhanaw taala told I made it obligatory upon us to sacrifice an animal in these 10 days of the hedger.
you know, we're also told to say that that could be it which we'll go over shortly. And then basically it goes on the you know, there's a there's a hadith is by acld, Allah who I heard that a sort of loss of the law and even some said there is nothing dearer to Allah subhanho 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 its hands here and who's to be weighed in reward, the sacrifices accepted by Allah, Allah, before the blood reaches the ground, therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart, what does it mean? That it will be brought in it be weighed, it will be
weighed, and is not going to make a difference of 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 or did you sacrifice because you have to? Did you sacrifice because people are watching you? Why did you start sacrificing this animal this will also be weighed 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 those who do cost
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 evil other but one thing that we forget to do in either another one 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 we we start helping in the masjid, who bring the mustard cleaning the masjid, attending the masjid, and so on. We might do these things to get more reward and this month however, we forget the fundamental fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala has said to us the most beloved action to me are those which are obligatory so for example,
your intention in these 10 days of this month should be that may Allah subhanho wa Taala Give me the ability to
act and read my Salah with devotion, concentration and complete conviction that Allah subhana wa tada 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 fudger go through the moussaka to wake up. And if you're praying only three, extend it to four, make a your prayer should be extended in terms of your obligatory prayer, try to do that more than anything. First thing that you should be doing those things are obligatory, start 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 salads 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 when these blessed months come, what do we do? We do think about those sellers, we start reading enough of an offer and we started with the hedge and we start reading you know, as lateral hajah, we
starting slightly stiffer and so on, we start doing all these different nafion 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. Read cover is called cover. 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 pages that you missed. I missed so many volha start reading the doors that you missed, as Miss so many us as Muslims, Asia, start reading those that you have missed. Do not think that by reading them, it's not as rewarding as another player that will always be even more rewarding than your novel prayers. Then
we should keep ourselves and have a checklist in our mind. are we reading every single Suna within Zohar within us her mother in Asia fudger try to get to this part inshallah where we can get
keep yourself up to keep your tongue moist with the vigor of Allah subhana wa Donna yet to be with La Ilaha in LA yet to be with Allah Allah Allah yet to be with a love love about 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 yeah Allah guide us yeah Allah make us the way you want us to be. Yeah Allah have such issue in a such problem. Yeah, a lot of movement. We want to then be a part of it.
How do you want to become a part of that Allah has not left as my room. 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 though as rigid though as call upon me once you call upon me then I will accept your though Allah subhanaw taala saying that these days, these days are such that you asked for me I'll be accepted your ad your status will be elevated then we you should keep yourself one two, maybe a day, maybe two days or one two or three the whole
month. Keep reading that one too. I get it me robina kulu banaba added but I had a turnover habla anomala dongara in NA canto have yet to be robina atina fifth dounia hacer una thermophila para hacer una Tamaki na da ba na. The process seldom asked for this though are the most if we asked for this though, ah and this month of Dhul hijjah. At least we will know that Allah Subhana 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 talk about the four walls animal Ottawa, then we come
into animal dunia, then we go into animal barza then we go into animal era. As in you start off oh and all the souls were created when they were all presented before Allah subhanaw taala that includes the Mona frikkin. That concludes the kuffar of today that included the trauma
of today that included every single person you and I were standing before Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we said, Your Rob, 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 rub, then your soul was put into them into you enter the womb of your mother, then your soul became into another world become animal, we know you're going to into animal dhulia 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 donia we still to enter animal bars, are there still people that have already went there? This is an interval interval period
between the dounia and the earth era. In this period, it will be decided, is this person going to go to jahannam are going to Jenna, 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 is 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 earth shall Allah subhana wa tada May Allah subhanho wa Taala makers 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 say 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 subhana wa tada will say, enter 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 an aeration yesterday will be in this person's
grave. And if this dragon was to hiss towards the dunya, no crops will ever grow again. So it's very very important that Allah subhanho wa Taala has still got you an eye an animal dunya see this as a NEMA because when we enter animal Bursa, you have got no you've got no help. You can't do anything you 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 subhanho wa 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 Sha one after show while he granted you to use your own mind an intellect to ask for forgiveness from Allah subhana wa ala then know Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted us with the ledger 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, regio da all these things Allah subhanho wa Taala is asking us to do why so you and I do not regret and you and I do not end up in animal Bursa 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, he said to me, I will not be happy until every single person from my oma is taken out of the fight of Johanna.
Allah is Yara Allah Xia, Haim Rahman, Al Maliki Kudu, Salah is Allah is all knowing, do you think Allah is going to keep on putting you in Jannah 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 a question and I request to 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'll 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, 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 Anna has instructed me to do this
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 subhanho wa 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 Allah will grant us this blessing through your intention. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah 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 subhanho wa Taala accept the hudge of all those people that have left make it easy for them, grant them whatever they asked for. And Yara, Bill amin also wherever they are that they make for themselves. They are Allah subhanho wa Taala makers a part of that though, that when they say I mean 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 mantra 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 Joseph and Jenna amin we are bill enemy hi
